fjf a trifle'Stronger, but the Yale qttnrter back was
S- far and away the superior of tho Harvard qusr-;"-.

,?; arenoral play the teams, as tbe scoro Indicates,
; trero very ovenly matched. Impartial experts
I who saw the game went away with tbe Impres
V Blon that Yale would give a bard rub to
Princotoif next Saturday, but that the Tigers
, would win. They also believed that Harvard
A would prove .a hard proposition for Pennsrl
j vanla. It was tho Impression, too, of men llko
? palrrl of Prlno ton, Orerfield and Minds of
-, Pennsylvania, and all of the Yalo coaches that
5 the Bine eleven played a triflo more scientifically
4 then Harvard, but tho Hitter's defence was tho

',' THE MORNIKO OUTLOOK.
i Late last night tho football enthusiasts suf-
r fered from a sudden shock when tbe stare wero
i obscured by clouds and a shower of ponetratlng
v aleot made the pavements glisten. After alllthe
f' predictions for fair weitthur.lt soemed then as
it If tbo game would be played under tbo most un-
favorable circumstaucos, but when the early
p risers peeped out at Iho glowing sunnse this
morning and beard tbo stiff northwest wind
whistle, thoy were happy. It meant that tho
4 game wouli be played under clear skies, in
t crisp atmosphere and on a comparatively dry
i- Tbe studonts of. both universities, who had
ft endeavored to mako Rome howl in what tbe
V Cook County Murchins Olub would call a "dead
r"i - jay town," were. up early, not so mucb bocauso
', they bad been on their feet until tho very smnll
-, hours and didn't caro to sleep, but mora be
i, oause they wore so thoroughly imbued with the
W thought of exciting Incidents to come that they
preferred to net out and talk things over. The
rt, early trains, those that left New York and N o w
V, Havon last nlgbt, brought in hundro s of Blue
. I' -and Crimson supporter, and soon they were
! J filling tbe corridors of the prinelnil hotels.
: The new Touralno Hotel -on Boylston street
j ws tbnbeadquarters for the-swell graduates
: and clubmen backing both sides. Tbere they
-. made bets on.tba game, but did not publish tha
V figures to the world. They simply declared
; tbat it was "even money and take your
i: choice." There" was more genuine excite-
ment at the Hotel Vendome, Yale's head-
quarters than anywhere elso. The New Haven
supporters were there in lara numbers, nnd the
j appearance, for a moment, of n Yalo player dr
U couch, was always tbe scraal for a cheer. Com
S Qdenceln the ability of Coach Uutternorth and
his men pervaded tho hotel, and as the time
f drew near to move on tbe gridiron over in Cam-
Hi bridge the members ol the Yale team were
fjf, happier than their followers.
f After a good breakfast Coaches Butterwortb,
Camp, Hartwell, Frank and LouHHtnkey, Hcf
f el linger, and others took tbo Ynln plnyers into
1; n private room und Issued some Unal Instruc-
i& tlons. Aside from methods of attack and do-
6 fence, the Yale team received tho most positive
orders to play clean, fair football, no matter
H what provocation for rougb tactics might arise.
"i "Wo wnnt to win this game in such a man
i. ner," said the conches, "that there enn be no
' recrimlnstions. If we are beaten It will be be
i cause Harvard has a better team and plays bet-
f Yalo men who had'moner to bet on the result
X were somewhat surprised over the fact that
V Hurvartt supporters would not offer more than
v even money on tho chances of their cloven.
B Thoy seemed to take this as a good sign,
'. though, for, as thoy .urguod, if Harvard had a
a powerful team that was reasonably sure of win-A-
nlng the Cambrldgo men would oiler oiids.
i i?Jl "We will cover 11 tho oven money in sight,"
HJff was tho prevailing Yalo boast, but strangn to
'3E say thero was very-little bettlnx in the morning
wffS hours. Everybody wns evidently waiting un-
i H? til Just before the icamo. when a better line on
&.. tho situation could bo obtalnod.
f BOSTON IN (JALA DRESS.
v' That Boston Is football irazy Just now was
i? evidenced bv tho people In the streets. Tbe
f crimson of Iturvurd was proudly flaunted on all
sides. In shop windows, in publlo restaurants
'i and cat6s. nnd in the clothing of men nnd
? women. The blue of old Yale, whlio
i, not seen so frequently, was also great-
M ly In evidence, for tho Incoming trains
f, wore bringing a hordo of blue mon who
1 showed their tcellngs without restraint. Wash-
V Ington and Tromont streuts wero crowded all
the morning with these enthusiasts, who served
f to put everybody, whether football craxy or
f not. In rare good humor.
I Toward noon all roads led to Soldiers' Field.
The trolley cars which could be found both In
.5, tho new subway underneath the much-revered
k Common and on the surface of the serpentine
streets, wero literally mobbed by the crowds as
f early as 11 o'clock. By the time the cars
5 reached the entrance lo tho two Cambrl ge

Hacks, herdlcs and 'busses wero at a premium,
too. They begun to niovo across tbe bridges at
X an early hour and kept it up in a never-ending
procession. The curried bluo or crimson be-
. decked young men, who wero escorting pretty
6. girls and motherly chaperones to the scono of
i' nose masks and long hair. Open wagons, with
i? boards for seals at a quarter it throw, wore also
f,. quite popular, while many other persons went

cam more steadily at 1 o'clock and then the
Eeople literally forced Into the arena, through
alt a doien wide gates. ,Harvard i bad a mort'
gage on the entire south side of the field, behind
both soil posts, and all' bnt'two bis sections In
I the north stand.
Inthtse sections the Yale. contingent, num
bering about 2,609, sat and cheered constantly
for an hour before the-toams arrived. They h id
threo or four blue flags aploce, and they kept
them waving so furiously Uiat the great crowd
oflltrvard shouters, -more than 20,000 strong,
1 when all wore on hand, sent back a desfenlng
chorus that soon drowned ont the Now Haven
yells. But there was something Impressive In
the way tho blue rooters yeltea out that word
"Y-a-l-el" which made the Harvard supporters
rather thoughtful. It was a sign of that old
ncrte and pluck which, baa so often In the past '
pla ed the blue above the crimson.
The Harvard College band soon mads Its ap
pearance, nnd ns the young musicians played
up and don n In front of the Harvard stands It
seemed as If tbe Crimson men would go wild
" Now. boys, give three times three for Presi
dent Eliot, the leaders, of, tbe cheering
shouted as the President of Harvard University
caino along and lifted his black dorby hat In re
sponse to the complimentary yells.
"And sire three more Harvnrds for good old
John, tho Orangeman," was the next order as
that celebrated personage came by sitting In a
little csrt, driving a long-eared donkey. It was
a Jolly crowd, and the noise grew louder as tbe
time for the arrival of the teams drew noar,
BAD AOCIDENT TO A MA800T.
Suddenly there wss a. hush among the Har
vard men and tben murmurs Indicative of dis
tress. A youth with a crimson band around his
bat rushed Into the field and hustled over to
whero a group of the best known Harvard men
" I've bad news," ho blurted ont at he gasped
for breath. " My goodness," said one man, "I
hope none of our men Is hurt. '
rVorse than that," gasped tha newtbearer.
" What I" In a chorus. . .
" Why, as the' Harvard eleven was driving
from the square to the dressing room the 'bus
ran over tbe team's mascot. Jack, tbe bulldog
owned by Beef ' Wheeler, and I fear the dog
lsdend. It has greatly affected the boys and
some of them aro In tears, '
When this unfortunato newt was spread
among the crowd, thero was a general wall of
anguish, and the more superstitious believed
tbat It was a bad omen.
"With the mascot killed and the date the
thirteenth, bow can Harvard win J" was the
question asked by Yale men, who greeted tho
news of the bulldog's mishap with shouts of Joy.
The rlvnl shouters were In the midst of somo
stirring songs when two big policemen pulled
out a gate in the fence around the northeast
corner of tha gridiron and let tho Harvard men
in. Tbe moment tho crimson stockings and
sleovos of the Jorseys were seen the 'crimson
flags-and banners were stretched aloft and the
stereotyped Harvard cheer rcEcboed back and
forth In awo-lnsplrlng roars. Capt. Cabot led
his mon, who. Including substitutes, numbered
nearly twenty-five, and when tboy got fairly
Into the mlddlo of tbo field they received an
ovation. But it did not last.
More than a minute later the Yale players
came trotting through a similar gato In the
northwest corner, which, of course, was the im
mediate signal for a blue demonstration, belned
along by the hospitable Harvard crowd. The
Instant the Ells appeared It was noticed and
generally commented upon that at least six of
tho eleven had long blond hair.
"They're a lot of chemical blonds," sold a
particularly wild-eyed rooter who had left the
ribbon counter for the afternoon.
"Hush, keep quiet," came back a sharp com
mand from the Harvard contlngent,who wanted
tbe Yalo man to havu polite treatment.
Then.Whlle the elevens rolled the boll around,
the substitutes of the teams strotcbed them
selves along the side lines and tbe officials msdo
ready for the start. Tbo heavy breeze from tho
west mado choice of goal very desirable, and the
toss-up was awaited with especial interest as
the referee, McClung of Lehigh, and tho um
pire, Doshiel of Annapolis, called the captains,
Cabot and Rodgers, to the centre of the Held.
The cheering ceased and tbo Immense crowd
sat in silence for tbe result of the flip of tho
coin. Yale men prayed that Rodgers might
call the turn and lako tho western goal with
tbo wind at bis back, while Harvard men wero
equally solicitous as to Cabot's luck In calling
heads or tails. 80 when the quarter of a dollar
was tossed, at precisely 2:02 o'clock, lUalgers
and Cabot wore opponents in a real game of
Rodgers sold "Uoads, and when the date
came up ho announced coolly:
"Harvard's ball. Yalo takes the wind."
n ARVARD BTArtTS AGAINST THB WrND.
Then the Yale men moved toward the western
goal to deploy tor Harvard's kick-off, and tbe
New Haven crowd, realizing that Harvard
would havo to battle against the wind during
the first half, cheered themselves hoarso, for It
was an advantage of seemingly vital imnor
tance. The ball was placed In position in a mo
ment, a id when the teams wero lined up for the
fray Ref-reo McClung blew bis shrill whistle as
astgnsl 10 begin.
Coach Forbes of Harvard and Coach Butter
wortb of Yale stood on opposite sides of tbe
field In a direct line with, tbe ball as II ugbton,
whose Identity was partially concealed by n
leather helmet and a broad nose mask, prepared
to kick off. Both coachers looked nervous, but
they did not forget to Impart a few last instruc
tions to their mon. It-was a trying moment,
but almost Immediately tne excitement of the
crowd wns let loose, for at 2:09 o'clock Hough
ton, after a few stops forward, booted tbe ball
far toward Yale's goaL . .. ......
The ball was oirrled,baok considerably by the
wind, but little De Saulles managed to catch It
and dashed back to his 25-yard line before
Donald nailed him. Both sides wore cheer
ing like steam calliopes when tbey suddenly
oeosed in their efforts to break eardrums as
thoy saw the ball being carriod back to the mid
dle of tho field for another kick-off. Umpire
D.ishlel bad seen a narvnrd man off side and
for that reason he had stopped play and ordered
the kick-off to be made over.
A second time, therefore, did Houghton boot
tbe ball. This attempt was a rather low drive
which was carried otl toward Yale's left by the
wind. Hnzen was tbe man to crab the ball as It
rolled along the soft turf, but he was downed
Julckly by Moulton on Yale's 25-yard line.
I wns the proper move for Yale t attnik
Harvard's line, if. only to find out as early
as possible where tho weak spots were.
Corwln, the freshman, was the first man
called upon to advance the ball. Cad
walader and Drown opened np a good
bole between Bouvd and Doucette and tho little
follow was shot through It for five yards. The
Yalo contingent cheered at once, for It was an
auspicious beginning, but the nextplsy brought
tho Harvard mon to their feet in a body. As
McBrlde dropped back for a kick tbe Yale
guards fell back a trifle to provide it sort of pro
tective interference. The full back got the ball
from Do SaUlles all right and kicked it, but,
wondrrful to relate, tbe kick was blocked.
Doucette managed to get In the way and a punt
with tho wind wns summarily spoiled. To
block a pnnt so early in tho game was a most
encouraging thing for Harvard und tbo crowd
Immediately beo mo more confident than ever.
In tbe hustle for tbo boll that followed, how
ever. Blown of Yale foil on It. Benjamin was
tried at Harvard's left tackle, but was beaten off
with no gain, so tbat McBrlde prepared to punt

sides, but tbls time tho Yalo centre men beld
Harvard well, nnd McJJrldo punted tho leather
far Into Harvard's territory, where It rolled out
nt bounds at tbe 20-yard line.
Tbo ball was taken In fifteen yards, and the
Harvard backs bad their first chance to test
Yale's defensive strength. Warren found tbat
be could do nothing with Cbamherlnln and
Brown, but Dibblee was more successful. Tbe
instant Dibblee got tbe ball be dashed toward
Yalo'e loft end, nnd, as Hazen was boxod up, he

lodging flrst this way and then that. Harvard's
star half back wasn't stoppod until be bad cov
ercd tlf een yards. Capt. Rodgers was tbe man
who pulled blm over, and be did not have on
kid gloves either.
"Horvnrdl Harvard! Harvardl" wis the cry
fro 20.000 throats as tbe teams lined un again.
Dlbbleo s run had put additions) hope Into the
hearts of the Crimson people, and they wanted
more of It.
But these rim men In blue were foil of grit
apd sand, and when Warren came smashing
Into Cidwulaler nnd Cbadwlck he fell in his
tracks without a yard. Tben Harvard tried a
new formation, evidently a Deland trick, by tak
ing her guards behind the backs, wbo were
pressod cloee to the line. But it did not work,
for Cad walader smashed things up, and the man
with tho ball was driven back for a loss.
It wr.s Yale's bill after tbat attack, on four
downs, and the teams were lined up exactly on
Harvard's 35-yard line.
M'niUDB rOKCKD TO PONT,
Yale begin a lino attack, w en Corwln made a
firo through Douretto and Bouvd. McBrlde
rled the oilier guird und got about half a yard,
so that the only play left was to p nt, where
upon McBrlde drove the ball clear over the goal
line. It wis only a kltkover or a tourbback.
and Harvard brought tbe oval out to her
25-yard line to put It in play with a free
kick. Houghton's punt was so poor tbit
the ball went out of bounds at Harvard's 46
laid line. The ball was called back accord
ing to tbe rule, and on tbe next try Houghton
Loomed tbe oval to Do 8 miles. The latter
muirod It squarely as hs stood on Yalo's 35
vard line, and Hnsknll made a tine play by
falling on tbe ball right In tbe midst of tbe
Yaleplarers. That achievement brought forth
a roar of delight from the Harvard rooters and
a corresponding groan from the alo followers.
, With only thirty-five yards between Harvard
and Yale's iroal line, tbe Crimson players began
to piny their hardest. Dibblee mado a rush to
fet by Hnzen and Rodgers, but be was downed
Ike it ton of coil. Warren made a couplo of
yards between Chamberlain and Brown, and
gathered In three more on a play around Hall.

rjAIIVAIlD'a CHANCES R0ST.
The capture of tho ball was so clearly dono
that even those who did not know the game
very woll were oworo of the act that luwns
Harvard's boll and In a second the air was filled
with crimson. Then camo some more fine runs
around tho ends. Warren dashed around Hazen
for twenty yards and Dibblee mnde six past
Chamberlain and Hall. Warren fumbled a pass
but fell on the ball, being, on ale's 35-yard lino
at tbe time. But the ball went to Yalo forth
with for holding In the line, and tho groans
camo this tlmo from the Harvard side of the
field. McBrlde attempted another punt, which,
like the others, was blocked, but only partially,
for tho ball coroo ed off to one side, and Garri
son, quick as a flash, fell on It. Tbat nppened
In tbe middle of the field, and thero was more
fever tor Harvard's rooters.
Moulton wns a trifle winded, but after a rest
of a minute or so he got up, and tho play was re
sumed. Hirvnrd was playing good football.
That was clear, but, as It turned out, It was bor

In stopping tbo end plays, for when Dibblee tried

Cabot nnd Warren could not make anything on
tbe same plays and Houghton fumbled. De
Saulles made what looked llko a fair catch on
Yale's 25-yurd line, and was tackled and thrown
Interference was claimed by disinterested por
sons, but the umpire mado no ruling, nnd tho
fsmo went on. McBrlde boomed a punt to
loughton, nnd the latter mnde a wretched muff
on his 40-yard lino. It was dangerous busi
ness, far tbe Yale ends wore noar at hand and
nouldhnve secure! the ball but for Dllihlee,
who grabbed tbo leather, dodgod llnll,
and dashed batk to tbo mlddlo of tbo
flold, v. hero Cadwalader engulfed him with open
arras. Ilouve was tried at tho centre with no
succo-s, nnd Houghton punted. It wns by long
odds his best kick, for the ball sailed so far over
McBrldo's bead that he had to chase It. When
ho got tho bill hn cleverly avolde Cabot, who
was after him like a bloodhound, and scurriod
buck to his 15-yard line, it hero Swain threw
him down. Sw.im was winded, but bo went on
with tho struggle
Benjamin couldn't gain a foot around Moul
ton's end and Corwln tumbled tbo bnll on n wido
pass, but saved It, Tho mlslako lost fifteen
jnrds for Yalo and McBrldo kicked. Again
Houghton muffed tbo ball InglorlouBly and
again Dibbles backed him up and scooted past
his opponents until bo was nailed by Chamber
lain on Harvard's 35-yard line, warren was
next thrown back by Chamberlain for a loss,
so tbat It was Harvard's third down with nino
yards to gain. Hougbton tben got In n long low
punt, which was uffectlve, but McBrlde dodped
Cabot and was not downed until he had reached
Harvard's 50-) ard line.
TALE'S 8TR0NQ OFFENSIVE WORE.
Doucetto recolved a wnrnlng for some rough
business, after which Yale begun an attack
which was tho rnont vigorous bit of offensive
work seen during th entire game. With the
ball on Harvard's 50-yard line, Corwln carried
it ahead live, through Haskell. Quick as light
ning tho Yale team lined up und Benjamin
went into the samo place for four more. Another
hard rush by Benjamin, backed up by his guards
and tackles, landed tbo ball on- tho 40-yard
line, and tho Yale contingent began to encour
age their players in wild fashion. Corwin cot
three yan.s between Donald and Haskell, and
Benjamin made two more in ho samo spot.
Yalo's attack was fierceness Itself, and yet tho
play went on rapidly with no serious injuries to
tbo players. Benjamin and Corn In, with a couplo
niori' plunges, got tho ball to tbo 30-ynrd lino
and Harvard looked annoyed. It was slow but
sure, this advance of the Klls, and it wits evi
dent that Harvard's defence was being tested as
it never bail been before. Big McBrldi! wns tbe
next to bo called upon, and be made five yards
through a bole between Doucetto and BouvtS.
In the mlx-up Haskell received rt nasty knock
on tbe left eye, but he v. asn't long In recovering.
Benjamin renewed tbls fierce onslaught with
three yards past Swain, and McBrlde with a
blind rush into tbo centre planted tho oval on
Harvard's 20-ynrd line.
Whore wss Harvard's defence I That was
the question on every tongue. Tbo crimson line
was surelv being outplayed hy the green young
sters from New Haven. There was no enthu
siasm from tbe Harvard supporters t)ow. Tboy
were in a tr.mce. With this unexpected turn
of affairs Yale was relentless, however, and the
attack continued. McBridn couldn't gain mors
than a foot at the centre, but Corwln and Ben
jamin quickly carried tbo ball flvo yards furtbor
ahead to Harvard's 15-yard line.
"Yale will score!" shrieked the New Haven
men, "and then Yale will win."
It certainly looked dark for Harvard, and the
players bractd themselves for'a dafenro such ns
they had nev6r pnt up boiore. Corwln got the
tip to go in again. Ho dashed forward like a
young bullock, but the Harvard centre
mn were so vlolont In their attempt to
break through the Hue tbat Cadwalader
wis suddenly pusho I baok on Do Saulles. The
llttlo auarter back was In the very act of
passing the ball to Corwln when this happened,
and be was so shaken up tbat Corwln fuinWed
a rather unsteady pass. As tbe ball fell to the
ground there was a concerted yell of warning
from the Harvard scct'ons. and Swain Immor
talized himself by plumolng hts body on top of
tbe leather, thereby pulling fair Harvard out of
a very light pluco.
Harvard cheers wore again to be heard every
where. It was a narrow escape; but such is
football, an there was no help tor It. Harvard,
In tbo exuberance of tha mqinent, forgot tbat
tho bill was bo near the goal line, and tried to
curry It toward Yale territory by short rushes.
A fake kick enabled Dibblee to gain five yards
around Hazen, but 00 a similar piny Warren
failed. Tben Dibblee and Warren did some
more lino bucking with varying success, until,
with nine yards to gain on the third down,
Houghton punted. This lime McBrlde mado a
muff, but De Saulles was on band and saved tho
McBrldo punted, b t his kick didn't count for
mucb, as the ball rolled outside at Harvard's
25-yard line. On tbls exchango Houghton
gilued five yards, oven though he was kicking
against the wind, which clea rly Bhowed tbnt tho
Yalo punter was not In his best rorm. A couplo
or Inolfective dashes nt tho centre hy Cabot and
Warren were followed by Houghton's punt,
which carried tbe ball to Yale's 45-yard line.
Do Saullos misjudged the ball, yet managed to
fall on it.
In the noxt play McBrldo made what wns the
best mint of the g imo. From his45-ynrd lino be
lifted the ball high and fair over lh beads of
tho Harvard backs until it finally struck on tho
10-3 aril lino and rolled back of tho goal posts.
Hougbton kickod It out from tbo 25-ynnl line,
but as the ball went out of bounds. It bad to be
kicked ovor. McBrlde made a muff on the seo
ond try, but recovered the ball before ho wns
tackled by Moulton.
Then De Saullos made bis first really great
play. Instead of taking tbo ball from Cad
walader himself, ho lot Corn in do it, and then,
receiving tbe leather from him, De Stulles bo
gan a sensational dash around Cabot's end. He
had fair interference, but he seemed to
be more confident in his own ability to
fret along. Threo Harvard men wire passed
n rapid order, and when Swain bent low to
make a sure tackle De Saulles leaped clear over
blm and rushed along. Dibblee then lungod at
him successfully, and tbe little Yale man was
pinned to Harvard's 25-yard lino. Ho tried to
iilay again, but was unfortunate enough to drop
tbo ball. Brown falling on it in good style.
Warren was slightly hurt in this soimraago,
and was replaced by Parker, although tbe
conches first ordered toungSawln to go into the
game. De Saulles noxt made a poor puss to
Corwln nnd tbo latter dropped tbe ball. Moul
ton made a dlvo at it ana It bolongod to Har
vard. Parker was tried Immediately and
couldn't gain. Dibblee mado fivv yards in two
end runs, but Hougbton was ineffective) wben
he tried Yale's centre. Tlio ball was nt Har
vard's 45-j ard line, and two more trials by
Dinbleeand Parker couldn't advnuco It an Inch.
The time for the flrst I11K wns up and tbe
teams left tbo Held for th usual intermission.
Hirvard men fell rither confident, for tbey nr
guod that Yale's mon would Ik tired In the sec
ond half rrom Ihoir previous efforts, while Har
vard would still have a powerful team, evon If
It was necessary to call in substitutes. Than,
too. Harvard was to havo the benefit or tho
ho ivy wind, which meant a groat iloil. Tho
Yale coaches were more than satisfied with
tho work of their team nnd bopod for victory.
They pointed with considerable sUisfaetion to
the fact that tho hulk or the play of tho first half
had been In Harvard's territory, and that the
Crimson goal line bad boen threntened much
more than Yalo's. But w hat ovcrybo Jy wanted
was a score, and whon the Icam- cime back
from their quarters tbe Interest waa white
heat, Bo'h (ontingents wuru now 1 heorlng their
representatives without let up, and It was ion
ceded on all sides tbat tho first team to score
would create a scene seldom looked upon.
START OF TUB SECOND HALT.
It was 3:10 o'clock when the second half of
the battle began. It was Yale's turn 10 kick off,
and Chamberlain sent the oval to Houghton.
Tho latter made a lino catch, and as he had the
wind at bis back he look advanlago of It by

Here wut tho chance tfcat tho Crimsonhad
jtwen looking for 'aver since tbe game began.
The ball was Harvard's and on. Yale's 85-yard
line at that, Pnrkerwss tho first to try his look,
but Hall shut htnj Toff with no gain. Houghton
was twloejanimiil into tbo centre for a total of
soven'yarde. ond-Dlbblee reached the Hftrd
line on tho tailoring play. Garrison fumbled
tbe ball, but fell on ft, thereby losing' three
&!& WJWeelrSa Chamberlain for one yard
nnd Garrison worked -In a side punt,' tho ban
flying stralgbflrrto De Saulles' arms, and tbe
.lol'r being downedln his tracks.
I 1 hat.was the end of -Harvard's chance, and it
demonstrated that Yale's defence was pretty
bopd. top. McBrldepunteil straightaway , after
this, and Dibblee. who picked up (lie ball In the
centre of the flsld. received a corking tackle
from Chamberlain, who got one hand on the
Harvard man's colW. Parker couldn't make
anything and Hougbton was called upon for a
kick. Ho shot the ball almost straight oyer
his head, and tho wind wo so strong that
It carriod the pigskin clear down to Yalo t
20-yard line, whtre McBrldo secured It The
latter, aided by some flno blocking off by De
B.ullos, who completely boxed Moulton, ran
bjlck ten yards, and then punted outside at
Yale's 4tyard line. . ,
Here was another ohance for Harvard to carry
tbo' ball toward Yale's goal, and tbo crimson
players went at their tackle like demons. Cabot
end Bouvd made about Ave yards between
them nnd Hnekell was laid out. M He bad re
celrod a wrench in his leg. and left the field In
favor of Norton Shaw, tbe vetornn guard. On
tho next play Harvard recelvod five yards for
off-side piny, the only penalty of tbat sort in
flicted during the game, nnd whon Bouvd and
Parker finally managod to get tbo ball to Yale s
15-yard lino there was Intense excitement.
nARTARD'S 010 OPPORTUNITY.
It was tbo chance of a lifetlrao Intheoyesof
all. for In twenty-two years Harvard had won
but two games from Yale, once In 1875 nnd again
in 1600. And hero was the opportunity to win
again. Fifteen yards from tbe naven that Har
vard men bavo longod for during a generation,
one might say, it waa pretty close to tbe desired
fruits of victory, and tho crowd knew it. Big
Bouvd smashed his mighty frame Into Yalo's
contro tor a yard. It seemed only an Inch. He
tried it "twin, and was buffeted about with no
gnln. Tbon Parker suddenly turn oil Yale's
right end, nnd whin Chamberlain nailed bim
ho was only eight yards from the goal lino.
It wss exciting business, yet tbo Yalo players
were a lot of cool headed chaps and thoy were
uotfeazedablt by the state of things. Cabot
was literally wolgod in between Rodgers and
Chndwlck until he was six yards from tho lino
and there was mare frenzy. Only eighteen feet
from victory, so dear to all collegians, yet there
those Yalo boys stood ready to tight for tholr
lives. It wus a trying situation to 00 sure, and
when the teams lined upagnln there wns so much
noise that the Harvard players begged their
friends to keep quiet so that thu signals could
be beard. Thon Cabot, tho csptaln, got tho bnll
nnd started for the loft end of Yalo's line. He
had scarcely gotten under way wb n Do Saullos
sprang through the Harvard, lino and dragged
Cabot down under a pllo or struggling players.
When tboy had pulled everybody off it was
soon that Hirvard had lost a couplo of ynrds,
but that there was still plenty of hope Ynle
Was bracing with every second of play now,
and vihen Parker attempted to plungo through
tho lino no was hurlod back by Chamberlain for
tbo loss of another yard. The ball wns on Yale's
nine- ard line, and Garrison tried De Saullcs's
qunrter back trick of ninnlng with the ball
after taking It from a temporary quarter. But
ho didn't gain a foot and tho ball wont to Yale
on fo r downs. It was Yalo's turn to yell now.
nnd Harvard was In mourning for fair. Yolo
had played a niogniflrout defensive game, and
Harvard had lost the best chance in tho gamo to
McBrlde. after trying to break open the line
unsuccessfully, got in a long, low punt to Har
vard's 25-yard line. The Harvard backs seemed
to bo a bit axhaustod from tln-lr previous ofTorts.
for wben they tried to work Yalo's line at this
point they wero etoppod even more easily than
a few moments before. As a result Yale re
ceived tbe ball on fourdowns. wlthtbollno-upon
Harvard's 28-yard line. A rake kick was tried,
Benjamin going into tho centre of the line
for a yard. McBrldo tben puntod and Hough
ton was tarklod by Chamberlain on tho 16-yard
line. But the Harvard full back immediately
kicked tho ball out of danger to McBrlde, who
dodged both ends as thev camo iiown tho field
and finally ran out of bounds at his 35-yard line.
Da aullos couldn't gain and McBrlde punted.
The kick was partially block) d by Shaw, but
Chamberlain was on thenlertandmodoasuperb
play by catching tbo ball before It reached tho
ground and running ahead ten yards.
McBrlde kicked again and Houghton muffed,
but as Brown Interfered with him. Harvard got
tho ball on her 40-yard linn. Houghton prompt
ly punted, bis effort belt.g short a d with no
speed. De Saulles was thrown on Yale's 35-yard
line. Without delay McBrlde uuntod tho leather
back, on tbe next play, Cabot catching tbe ball
on Har ord's 40-yard line. There waa no gain in
this exobinge for either team, whiih showed
that McBride's lucking was far better than In
the first hair. ,
, 'Uonghton'now'worktsd in another kick, and
this tlmo Cabot fell on the ball on Yalo's 35-yard
llpe. Hero Wns still another chance for Harvard
toadrance the 'ball over that magic goal line,
ertd tho men were vociferously encouraged.
Parker got seven yards in two rushes, in one of
which Swain was silently hurt. Ho was
taken off, and "Beef" wheeler went in
at left tacklo for Harvard. Dibblee was
beaten .back by Chamberlain, and on the
third down Houghton was compelled to kick.
Tlio wind carried tho ball over the goal line and
Yale brought It opt to tbe 25-yard line, where
McBrlde drove tbo oval to Houghton 'and tbo
latter rnn out of bounds at his OO-yard line.
Houghton's punt, that followed, went out of
bdunds, too, and on the return mado br McBrldo
tbs leather was downed on Hirvard s 50-yard
llpe. Parker got around Hall for three yurds,
but Dibblee lost five when he attempted to butt
bis way through Ro igcrs.
DE SAULLES MAKES A DASH.
The Yale men were breaking through Har
vard's. line more easily than in tho early stages
of tbe gome, and were playing with lucraased
gingor. As Harvard's backs could not gain any
more, Houghton got in tbe inevitable punt which
was thu beginning of Da Suulles's second magni
ficent play. The little qunrter buck caught the
punt on Yale's 15-yard line. Tho teams were
both broken up considerably, and De Saulles
started up thefleld at a great pace. Ho dodged
bqth Cabot and Moulton, sent Garrison sprawl
ing, skipped playfully past "Beef" Wheeler,
and thon dashed along tho side lino until bo got
to tho middle of the field, whero ho was for ed
out of bounds by Dibblee. He had travelled
forty yards, and tho Yalo rooters cheered blm
again nnd ngnin. It was tho best move of tbe
game, and De Saullcs's namo was in thousands
Benjamin and Corwln couldn't advance tbe
ball any further and Mc rido came to the res
cue with a punt t Hougbton, who was landod
all right on Harvard's 20-yard line. Dibblee
could only get a couplo of yards In two trials
and Hougbinnwas compelled to kick, tho ball
going out of bounds at Yale's 45-yard line. Of
course McBrlde kicked tbe pigskin bick, for
that was the only piny. Onco more the Harvard
backs tried to break tbo Yalo line open, but it
Was usolrss. and Hougbton, now pretty tired,
bad to kick again.
Too ball was taken up by Yalo on her 40-yard
lino and tha blue backs began an attack. Mc
Brldo was tho most aggressive Yale man, for in
two dashes in tandem formations he msdon
total of fourteon yardr. Thon Harvard braced
and McBrlde kicked. Dibblee caught tho ball
and was tumbled in a h-np by UnU on Harvard's
25 yard line. Donald gave way to Mills, who
promptl made a great dying tacklo of Mi Brldo,
who ought a puntfrom tbe Harvard full back.
An exchange of punts enabled De Saulles to
make his third great play. As the ball was foil
ing toward blm ha slipped to bis knees. It
looked as though he had fallen and the Harvard
ends kept off a trifle, foarina-penalties for inter
ference. The diminutive Yule player then caught
the ball, while oti bis knees, and leaping to bis
feet ho dodged bis war back to the mlddlo of
tbe flel I bfturo he was downed. Corwln smashed
Into Ilouve for five y.irls. and Benjamin round
three more in tbe centre. Corwln made four
nround Cabot, but the run went for nothing as
tbe ball was fumbled tbo noxt moment by Do
Tben a kick was necessary, and herein oc
curred Do Saullea's greatest play. As McBrldo
wastn tbe act of kicking thoball Parker broke
through Hoda-crs and blocked the punt, the nail
striking blm squarely on tho chest and knock
ing bun fiat upon his back. Tbo play
was mado so quickly that tbo bull got
behind McBrlde and the other backs and
wnnt rolling rapidly toward Yale'a gotl
line. Cabot and Moulton saw It and literally
flew after It, De Saullos siw it first, though,
and hound the two Harvard men began a neck
and nock race for It. Tho crowd yelled all sorts
of Instructions to the men, but Ibey heeded not.
Do Saulles wns faster than cither of his oppo
nents, and gradually got abend of them. In
Jess time than It takes to tell It tho
trio were right on top of the swiftly
moving ball with Do Saulles In the land. In a
JltTy hu blocked Cabot off, and, pit king up the
ball while on the fly, he dodged Moulton and bo
gan another run up tho field. He was 100 near
thu lines, thougb. to make much progress, and
went out of nounris at Yule's 25-yard line.
That ulay seomud to take thu eait out of
Harvard, for In the last mlnuto or two tho Crlm-co-s
played llfelcsslr while Yale was contented
with what bad been accomplished by her brave
Cor In made the final dash of the gnmo for
threo yards between Wheeler and Uabot an I
then lime was called.
There was 1 perceptiblo lack of enthusiasm In
tho greal crowd because no doflnlte result had
beeu ruuebed. But ever boJy ugreed that tho
teams were evenly nutihed and tbat tbegamo
was a beauty. The summary:

Eminent Brooklyn Democrats received lntt
matlons ye'st'erdsV thait ex-Asscmblyman John
B. Stnnchfleld o Elmlra, former law partner of
ex-Senator David B. Hill, is a candidate for the
Democratic nomination for Governor noxt
I year. The news concerning Mr. Stanch
field's aspirations was coincident with Mr.
Btanchfleld's arrival at the Hoffman Houso
In New'York. The Hon. Hugh McLaughlin, tho
veteran loader of the Brooklyn Democracy, hnt
been for flfte n years the warm friend of Mr.
Hill, and in a recent Intorviow Mr. McLaughlin
attributed tho success of the Democratic cam
palgn to Mr. Hill. , Mr. McLaughlin, In that in
terview, spoke of Mr! Hill In the highest ter s,
and insisted that'tho success of tha Democrats
In Greater No York and In New York Stato
was due entirely to the lines of battle
laid down by Mr. Hill. In view of this
situation Mr. SlanchOeld, It was ascertained
yesterday, has naturally called upon tho Brook
lyn Democrats flrst of all to remember that ho
is a candidate for Governor. Mr. McLaughlin,
it was learned yesterday, has not In any way
committed himself to Mr, Stnnchlleld's candi
dacy, and yet It may ho said without fear of
contradiction that Mr. McLaughlin and his
frlonds ore agreeable to any programme that
Mr. Hill and Mr. Slnnchtleld may submit,
Mr. Btanchfleld's visit to Now York at this
time and tho comments of the Brooklyn Dem
ocrats on his candidacy for Governor have
boen accepted ln some quarters to mean tbat
the Democrats are hopeful of electing tholr
State ticket noxt year, and with the election of
their Btato ticket oxpect to capture tlio Legisla
ture. Mr. Hill, his friends said. Is confident of
this result next year. Ho Is the warm political
frlondof Mr. Stanchfleld, and the wheels have
alroady been set moving to bring about Mr.
Stancbfleld's nomination for Governor.
In view of tho foregoing statements many
Bro klyn Democrats In Mr. McLaughlin's camp
could not quite understand yesterday the atti
tude Of ex-DIstrlct Attornoy James W. Rldgway.
Mr. Rldgway Is ono of tho most nopular Demo
crats ln Brooklyn. He is a young man. a
hustler, an orator, and a fighter, and ho
bns a grlovanco ngnlnst Jim Shevlln nnd
other lieutenants of Mr. McLaughlin. Mr.
Rldpwny, it was Bald, has no perconul griovance
ngalnstMr. McLnughlln, but It Is determined
to mnko war on Jim Shevlln nnd other lieuten
ants of Mr. McLaughlin. Yet at the samo time
Mr. Rldgway has always teen supposed
to bo a suDDorter of Mr. Hill. Nnv-r.
tbeless, Mr. Rldgway, it wis nscor
tai ed, is organizing all over Brooklyn clubs,
known as " Tammany clubs." Tho members of
these clubs aro supposed to bo antagonistic to
tberdgimeof Mr. McLaughlin and bis lieuten
ants. It. wns stated by eminent Tai many
leaders yesterday that they hate not Incited
Mr. Rldgway to organize those clubs or given
blm emouragement, but Mr. Rldgway has gone
ahead, and It Is bis purpose to organize a Demo
cratic machlno in these "Tammany clubs" to
resist the domination of Mr. McLauithlln.
The Tammany loaders from Richard Croker
down, it Is well known, do not llko Mr. Hill.
Mr. Croker doos not besitato to criticise
Mr. Hill on almost every occasion in per
sonal conversation, John C. Sbechan and
Mr. Hill aro hardly on speaking terms.
It may he said that Mr. Croker and
his friends aro closely allied with the
fortunes of Senator Murphy. It was vory posi
tively said yesterday by peopio close to Mr.
Croker1. who were romootent to speak on the
situation, tbat Mr. Croker has resonted in per
sonal conversations tho statements of Mr. Mo
Lnughlin that Mr. Hill organized tbe plan of
battlo by whlbh Mr. Van Wyck was elected
Mayor and Supremu Court Justice Par
ker wns electod Chief Judge of the Court
of Appeals. Mr. Croker's friends declared that
tho programme of battlo was laid down by Sen
ator Edward Murphy. Jr , and ox-Mayor Hugh
J.Grant, and tbat to Mr.Murpby and Mr.Grant,
as well as Mr. Croker and bis frlcndB, tho suc
cess of tbo Democratic party ln Greater Now
York and ln New York State Is really due.
However that may be, leading Democrats, in
discussing tbo situatiob yesterday, said that
Mr. Croker and hts friends would have very
much to say next year as to the Democratic
candidate for Governor. Tbeso Democrats re
tnomberod that Mr. Stanchfleld came to New
York. nnd made a speech In Tammnny Hall for
Mr. Van Wyck, and there was no desire to
speak or Mr. Stanchfleld other than ln friendly
terms: but It was mado very clear tbat Mr. Hill,
Mr. MeLauirhlln, and other frlonds of Mr.
Stanchfleld would not be permitted to dictate
Mr. 8tanchfleld's nomination for Govornor.
Eminent Democrats familiar with what is go
ing on said tbat with the closing of tho polls on
election day the preliminary work to capture
the Legislature next year had boen begun.
Stato Senators and Assemblymen who aro to
vote on tbe successor to Mr. Murphy aro then
to be elected. Mr. Hill desires very much to
succeed Mr. Murphy in tbe United .States Sen
ate. Mr, Hill and Mr. Murphy havn been w irm
political friends for a dozen yo rs, nnd friends
of tho two gentlemen, ln speaking of tbo
Bltuaton yesterday, said tint tbey feared
tbatlftho Democrat b captured tho Legislature
many- friends of Mr. Hill nnd of Mr. Mur
phy would be compelled to tako positions
which would lead to misconstruction and
unpleasantness. Mr. Murphy's friends say
be Is not an orntor llko Mr. Hill,
but thnt he is thoroughly acquainted with tho
desires of business men and bad mado a very
much more practical statesman in tho United
States Senate than Mr. Hill. In view of all
these comments, and with the belief of tho
Democrats that they are to cupturn the Legis
lature next year, tbe friends of Mr. Hill and
of Mr. Murphy aro becoming somewhat uneasy
as to their course.

Many Republicans ITnnt tbe Old Assambly
District System Uaek.
For a long time there has been more or less
dissatisfaction on the part of many Republicans
with tbe olAn of organization of the party now
in for6e in tbls county. Tbo chief objection to It
is that It forbids the existence of anything llko
an Assembly district organization and precludes
the possibility of a County Executlvo Committee.
Tbo prime object of tbo plan was to mako tbo 1
election district association the real sourco of
all organization effort and to prevent the abridg
ment of Its powors ln any way. The result of
Its practical operation, tbe dissatisfied Republi
cans say, has been to weakon tbe organization
In Assembly districts where It should bo strong,
especially when an Important battle is on for
the control of the Legislature. It has causod
rows over the organization of conventions
which never would havo occurred had there
been an Assembly District Committee empow
ered to call suoh conventions to order. To pre
vent the recurrence of such trouble. It has been
neo ssury to centralize certain powers whlih
should bo exercised by the district organization
ln the President of the C unty Committee.
Then the prohibition against having nn execu
tive committee has beon evaded bv the pro lslon
o a caucus conference unrecognized by tho
Agitation looking to a remodelling of the plan
has neon going on for some tlmo in several As
sembly districts, ln no caso has tbcre been any
expressed desire toi onwny with tho election dis
trict system. Tbat Is in most cobob commend
ed as Interesting the Republican voters in ao
tive party work. What la roully desired Is, per
baps, best expressed in tbo following resolu-

One of the best places ln tbe gift of the incom
ing administration is that of City Clerk.
It Is worth $7,000 a year in salary. Tbe
clerk Is chosen by a majority vote of tbo
Council. Besides being clerk, of the Coun
cil he appoints tho clerk of tho Board of
Aldermen and all subordlnato clerks and mes
sengers for both houses of the Municipal As
sembly, lie is the keepor of the city sea1 and
all legislative records, countersigns all bonds,
issues all auctioneers' licenses, and Is altogether
a pretty big gun in tbe municipal administra
tion. There are already a score of candidates for
this placo ln the Tammany ranks, for It Is under
stood that Brooklyn cannot havo the plaoe.
Tammany controls the caucus and will get tho
patronage. Among the oandldatcs are Michael
F. Blake, former Clerk of the Common Council;
John B. McQoldrlck, Clerk of the City Court
and Secretary of the Tammany Executive Com
mltteo; William J. Ellis, formerly Assistant
Clerk of the 'Assembly, and Perclval Naglo, tho
bookmaker, wbo is one of the Tammany leaders
ln the Thirty-fourth Assembly district.

The Board of Aldermen completed tbe can
vass of tbo returns from tho Eighteenth Assem
bly district early yesterday afternoon stnd ad
journed until Monday morning, when they will
begin work on the returns from tbo Nineteenth,
where there is a contest over the vote for As
semblyman and Alderman, the Citizens' Union
candidates claiming election, although the
Tammany Ilall candidates seem to bo elected
on the face of tho returns.
William O. Verplanck, the Citizens' candi
date for Alderman in the Twenty-first district,
secured yester. ay an order from Supreme Court
Justice Lawrence permitting him to examlno
tbo tally sheets returned from his district, on
the claim that tho sheets show In one election
district that ho received ICO votes, although tho
Inspectors returned only 16 for him. Evon
though he should bo credit od with the 132 extra
votes, tbe Tammany candidate, John V. Roddy,
says it would avail Verplanck nothing, as
Roddy has a load of nearly 400 over Verplanck
on tho face of the returns.

There are plenty
of them. Tho
is a recognized in-
stitution. Out U
have grown omax-
in many ways, they H
are not independ- H
ent of their woman H
hood; and the best
f them don't want H
to be. There is no "
escape from tho IU
, , fact that Nature in- i,
tended them to be wives and mothers ; '
and f this end has equipped them with
a delicate special organism which is tho
keystone of their whole physical exist
ence, and which when weak or diseased
causes four-fifths of all their sufferings.
Women make a dangerous mistake
when they allow these delicate com-
plaints to go on unchecked, wearing
down their nerves and sapping their very
tie away. It may end in complete phys
ical and mental wreck. And there is no
possible necessity of it.
Thousands of women who have never
got any help from doctors have ben
promptly and entirely cured by Dr.
. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It heals
the internal source of these ailments:
I purifies nnd invigorates the nerve-centres
ami supplies genuine organic strength
and vigor It is the only medicine pre-
pared for this one purpose by a skilled,
experienced physician; it is the only
medicine which fulfills that purpose.
