Defeats Army Eleven When

IBy TfiffTepb to The Tribune. 1
Philadelphia. Nov. I'tJ. — Navy men the
•world over an celebrating to-night a
iootball victory over the Army. Two
elerefis rcprvsenUny: the arms of Uncl«
Fani's service, from the Military Acaa
rrhy at West Point and the Naval Acad
emy at Annapolis, faced each other in
ir.imic battle at Franklin Field here to
day, and after a stirring, bitter and
spectacular struggle the midshipmen
<t»nquered the cadets by a score of 3 to 0.
Three periods came And went before
•<>.OUO persons, torn lv conflicting emo
tions, saw the thrust that could not be
jiarried, saw the play that meant victory
for the Navy. Dalton. one of the An
napolis halfback?, had been fairly bom-
Larding the Artsy defences with trials at
jroais from placement. Five times he
failed; five t/mes Navy hopes, raised to
lowering heights, came tumbling down;
Jive times Army forebodings, sunk to
lowest depths, went jumping up. The
fourth period was well under way when
SowelL the clever little field jreneral of
ifce Na\y, saw another chance to strike.
His faith in Dalton was still strong.
The ball \ras on "West Point's yard
!ine. ai»d the cadets withstood two
vicious assaults at the line without
hinvbing; and stopped with Blight gain,
tv. o reckless dashes of Navy, backs.
•Then came the play that made all the
difference between winning and losing.
Daiton Kicks Goal from Field.
I>ali.on dropped back to the SO-yard
line and carefully measured the distance
as Sowell knelt on the turf to receive the
l>ass and place the balL The six hundred
or :ncre midshipmen massed in the north
s-U<r;d. who had r.-jt been quiet long
enough to draw a full breath, took up
the chant: "Make that kick! Make that
kick!" Suddenly the Navy cheer leader
shouted through 3,i:; megaphone for
<juict. The command v.as heeded, and
z.n impressive hush settled over the field
for just eight seconds — eight fateful sec
onds. The pass from Weems was true,
pv.d Dalton, Land ready, sent the bail
taiKng over the beads of the Army for
wards, who came charging through to
j-arry the kicker or block the try. and
skiramteg over the bar between the up
rights for a goal rom placement and
ihrcc precious joints.
Like the crash cf thiinder came the
Navy rviar. The field of blue in the north
Ftand was &. Gashing sea of gold. The
riidshiptneaT on their feet to the last
man. almost lost their reason. The stand
rocked, not metaphorically, but actually.
• Jrizzled old admirals and dignified cap
tains slapped each ether on the back.
Th<- band joined in. but actions spoke
louder than the bass drum; it could not
"1-e heard in the din. Fair women laughed
liystcrically or looked on In mute ad
miration at the striking picture of mad
«icring joy on one fide an<3 of stoical
calm on the other, where the soldiers in
Crey stood in disappointed silence.
It was wonderful. Those who looked
rill never forget Dalton's goal from the
Seld on a day in late November.

j Mails Full of Complaints of Get-
Rich- Quick Concerns.
: Washington. Nov. 2tf.— "This is a piti
able sight." said Postmaster General
Hitchcock to-day, as he pointed to a pile
of letters a foot high lying: on his desk,
all of them complaints from people in
various parts of the country who had in
; vested money in "get-rich-quick" con
cerns, whose alluring announcements
had promised large dividends to the
purchasers. Many of the letters con
tained stock certificates and bonds which
were worth no more than the paper they
were printed on.
Mr. Hitchcock said that the depart
ment was "hot foot" on the trail of some
of the concerns, and he hoped they would
be brought to the ground.
'Many of these letters." he added,
"are sad commentaries on the. rr.isplaced
confidence which men and women, many
of them poor, have placed In their fel
lcw.«=. Thousands of such letters are re
ceived annually. The department is go
ing to do Its best to put these concerns
out of business." i

Envious of Playmate's Dress,
Makes Appeal for Charity.
[By Telegraph to The ]
Winsted, O»nn.. Nov. 2G. — Because she
envied one of her school mates a new
dress, an ■ Ight-year-old girl of Tor
ring-ton wrote a letter to the Charity
Organization Society of Hartford, say-
Ing she was a poor widow with three
children, and was badly hi need of
money. If money was not to be h;jd.
she wrote, then clothing for the children
v oiild h»> acceptable.
The letter was received a few days be
fore Thanksgiving, and when the turkey
day came around A. H. WHeox, secre
tary of the Torrington Young Men's
Christian Association, to whom the let
ter was re-addressed, went to the ad
dress given. He carried a basket filled
with a Thanksgiving dinner.
When he knocked at the door a neatly
dressed woman appeared- Mr. Wileox.
in a kindly ton<\ told the woman he had
brought a dinner with him, ho that she
and her children need not go hungry.
Tile mistress of the house told Mr. Wil
cox. she was not a pauper and that her
children had plenty to eat. Blushing
with embarrassment, Mr. Wil.-ox showed
the letter to the irate woman.
A glance at the handwriting showed
Xhf woman that it was the work of her
♦ ight-year-old daughter. The mother
told Mr. Wilcox that the child had seen
a girl friend with a new dress and
wanted one like it. This is supposed ? to
have i,.. iii.- reason for writing the let
ter. Mr. Wilcox took his Thanksgiving
dinner back with him.

All lines of the great Pennsylvania
Railroad system, which, with connec

Seventh avenue and 32d street which
was officially opened last night for the

old Pennsylvania station in Jersey City
and "paddle" th^ir way. across the Hud

change. Now they will find themselves
just on the threshold of the hotel

The first regular passenger tram to

It stops at all stations between this city

New Publicity Regulations and

•. Effect.
•'[Ftom Th» Tribune BuTPau."! -
Washington, Nov. • 26.— While the
Democrats are talking about "pitiless
publicity,"- the -Republicans' are achiev
ing it. . This is .the view taken by the
administration, which is ' well pleased
with; the manner in which Secretary
MacVeagh has .worked out .the publicity
feature' of the corporation tax law. The
law as originally enacted was an honest
attempt to secure publicity for the af
fairs of those corporations which offer
their securities 'to the : general • public,
but it. was found "to be too • farreaching
in. that it did nut discriminate between
corporations of that . character' and all
other?. The regulations putting the new,
legislation into effect are. believed to ac
complish that end.
in the .enactment' of this legislation
and the promulgation of the- publicity
regulations r the administration believes
it is putting this country on. a par with
Croat Britain, Gerrha'ni' and other for
eign countries, which exercise the most
far-reaching supervision over .not, only,
public service but all other quasi-public
corporations: in a word, although mem
bers of this administration may not use
the term, they describe the progress they
have mad" and expect to maße In this
direction ,in terms which strikingly sug-
? ej=t the logical d«velopment,.of "the new
nationalism." ;
To appreciat.r " the progress" which' is j
l.ems made in this direction it is neees
sarv to take into consideration both the
corporation tax law, with its publicity !
feature, and the work 'of "the Tariff
