The Harvard Univer sity football eleven sprung a big surprise here this nfternoon, when the cadets of the United States Military Academy were bowled over by the unexpectedly large score of 28to0. But for the fact that the two punt-outs for goal trials were missed, the total for Cambridge would probably have reached :io. The battle was fought on the beautiful parade ground, surrounded by a fringe of 4,000 ontbuslastlo spectators. It was real font ball weather, but a tremendous gale blew steadily across the field from the west and ehllled the onlookers to tha marrow. Th cadets and regulars, muffled In army coats, were on the side lines early, and a host of pretty women came out. too. to see the fun. The band stationed at the post had seats 200 yards from the gridiron, for some reason, and ould not be heard distinctly except when tha melodies wore caught up and carried by the little hurricane. The game was scheduled to begin at 3 o'clock, but there was some unforeseen delay, and the teams did not appear until nearly a thalf hour later. The Harvard men came oat first, and the assembled cadets Immediately broke out Into a hospitable err of: ltalil Rah I Ray I buhl Hall! Kail wcstPolntl WestPotntl arnayl Harvard I Harvard I When the Crimson kickers, led by sprightly Capt. Dlbblee, rolled out upon the smooth field of green velvet the expert began to look them over. Among the latter were three noted Vale men DeHnulles.the great quarter back: Frank Buiterworth, who umpired the game, and Har mon Uraves. These and others immediately noticed that for centre rush Coach Cameron Form had picked out Sargent, who looked like 5 pocket edition of Cadwalader, last rear's ale centre. Hargent was at least fortr pounds too heavy, hut snowed marked ability In de fensive work. Harvard's defence demonstrated one of two facts, either that it wan unusually strong or thut West Point's attack was unexpectedly weak. Hut as the Cadets said their men were filnylng up to the handle, it Is more likely that he Crimsons are entitled to credit for smash I lug up the Cadets' Interference and downing almost every runner for small gains. At the ends Harvard has two lively players In Cochrane and Hallowell, but they can bo improved upon. Cochrane is verr last and Sots under punts as well as anybody, but to ay he seemc'l unable to keep from being put out of the plays wheu the Cadets sent their biK'ksnrouiul his end. This was the fault with Hallowell. too. although both made some splen did tackles in the open. The tackles. Burnett and Mills, showed up better than had been expected. The Drat named has the beef and yet seems to he fast, aggressive and llerce in his line work. Mills Is more puworlul in build and looks like Ulll, Yale's old tackle, who was the star of the col leges eight yea i sago Vonl at left guard played strongly and madu many good holes in the opponents' line.

He played hard ootbnll all through, and made a noticeably Star Play when he tell on the ball after Burnett iU'I blocked a kick In the middle of a llerce scrimmage. One fault to bo found with Harvard's line was lack of speed in keeping the ball ami op posing line on the jump. The men broke through well, hut they could nave done better If they liml bi ought more ginger Into! he game. There was a tendency to confer a bit too much, thereby permitting tho Cadets toregnin the.r wind When on several occasions they were bndly hlown and could not have resisted much incessant pounding. There were many OPisirtunitles lost. too. to break up Interfer enco. although when the Harvard rushers did get ho! ! o 1 In- man with the ball they landed hint In his tracks almost invariably.

Warren was ruled off because somebodr charged him with unnecessarily rough taetb-s.

Warren and Mils did not leave because of exhaustion, either. As the cadets played with despera tion and considerable roughness Harvard's staying powers stood out in bold relief, Al together it was an afternoon full of encourage ment for the followers of the Crimson. Cochrane kicked off for Harvard at 11:25 o'clock. West Point having selected the north ern goal. Waldron. who did the bulk or the rushing for tho Cadets, and Jackson, his run ning mate, tried Harvard's centre aid were downed hard. Romeyu then tried to kick, but Mills blocked the bull and Cochrane fell on It on West Point's thirir-yurd line. Harvard' backs began a vicious attack straightaway, and In a few minutes they had worked the bull to within two feet of the Cadets' goal line.

This was the signal for another hard attack, and the ball was carried back nearerand nearer the home eleveu's goal, until Oibblee s-ooted around the left end behind Kreat interference by Warren, and orossed the ne for tne first touchdown.

Bomern punted, and Duly fumbled the leather long enough to let Smith pin him to Harvard's thirty-yard line. Daly kicked to Kramer, who was thrown on West Point's fortr-fivo-yardline. It was here that Waldron made the longest run of the dar. a great dush for fortr-flve yards around Harvard's left end. Dlbblee was In the way. though, and ihe flying Cadet was thrown heavily on Harvard's twenty-yard line That was the nearest West Point got to Harvard's goal during the battle, but the p'.,y stimulated the crowd and ths cheers went up on all sides "WL ,ulle ,r"lt defence, got th having succeeded Jackson, tried another at tack, but when Harvard thlrtr-fira-yarfl line was reached, four downs deprived the Cadet of the rlgskln. The ball remained about in the centre ol the field for the last three minute and was (till there when the half ended. Instead of letting down In their play, espe cially In attacking force, the Harvard men rather increased their steam In the second half, and soon tore Ihe Cadets' line to pieces. After the klok -off Bomern and Daly Indulged In a punting match. In which ths former lost round.

The Cadets' were olearlr demoralised now. and the Harvard men, after letting Daly and Held outkick ltomevn. resumed their offensive tactics with so muoh vigor that Kendall soon got the ball after a blocked kick and hustled over the line.

The all-star football team of the Duquesno Athletic Club of Pittsburg, embracing the pick of the er-'varslty teams of Princeton. Cornell, Yale and University of Pennsylvania, admin istered a crushing defeat to the Knickerbocker Athletic Club eleven at Berkeley Oval yester dar. The Pittsburg team included O-elbert and Carl Williams, the noted University of Ponn srlvania men : " Bob" Church. Princeton's fa mous tackle : Knifer. the Yale half back : Young, the famous quarter back of the Cornell '97 team, and other celebrated gridiron stars. The Knickerbocker Club is striving to put out a first-class foot ball team this season, and It waa anticipated that the visitors would be forced to struggle hard for victory. Twelve hundred football enthusiasts watched the contest In weather that was favorable for the gladiators, but deoldedlr chilly for spectators. The home team put up n plucky and de termined fight, but at no period of the game did they menace the visitors' goal. The Du nuesne team outplayed the Knickerbocker men at every point, scoring at will In the first half. The contest was a pretty struggle, and replete with trick plays and excellent team work upon the part of the visitors. The game was called at 3 o'clock. Knickerbocker won the to.-. and (elected the western goal with the wind in their favor. Duquesne kicked off. Larendon fumbled the ball, but Ohl fortunately fell on the leather. On tho line up the home team was unable to advance the ball. Upon securing possession of the oval the visitors worked the "guards back" formation, and In side of three minutes forced Church over the goal line for a touchdown. Young, the old Cornell player, who filled the position of full back for the Duquesnes. failed in his first trial nt a goal from touchdown. On the next kick off and throughout the entire first half the Du quesne team forced the hall up the field on a succession of mass plays for repeated touch downs, scoring 2 points In the first twenty-Are minutes. The visitors used the "guards back" for mation throughout the game. During the first half Gelbort Williams. Young. Church. and Kelfer mode some brilliant runs. The Knickerbocker backs fumbled the ball re peatedly at critical moments, and in almost everr instance n D'iqii"sne man was at hand to capture the leather. Young skirted Kocbler's end and made a alxty-vard run in the first hnlf on a fake pass from Williams to an end rush. Miller of the Knickerbocker team was injured in the first half, and was replaced br Ludlow. In the second half the visitors put In a num ber of substitutes, punted frequently, aban doning their rushing tactics and resting their men. On the fake pass Young ran down tho field from the Duquesnes' twenty-yard line I through the entire Knickerbocker team for a touchdown. Sixteen points were rolled up by the visitors In the second half. For the home ; team Kingden at guard and Boeder at end put I up a strone defensive gnme.The home men wore outclassed at all other points. Hilly Ohl. the I old Cornell full back, played half back on the Knlekeibocker team, but did not display his ! old-time college form at any stage of the game. ' The Knickerbocker team was made up of big, muscu'ar fellows, hut the entire lack of team and delenslvo work, coupled witli fumbling I throughout the contest, lost considerable for I them. For a heavyweight team the visitors j displayed great ngiilty. Their formations were I made with such precision that thev never failed to gain ground. Excellent team work and star Individual plays marked their work during the two halves. Summary: Dueiu'lnc A. C. Pttairiaitt. Knickerbocker J . C. Geibert Left end Koehlef I Church LeftUckl I !:.'

Unlversltr of Penn sylvania defeated Lehigh to-day in twenty and twenty-two-minute halves by the score of 40 to 0. The Hour little Lehigh boys were con stantly stretched out, but kept plucklly at it. It seem like cruelty to children for the Quakers to play such a team. Lehigh's team this rear is but n sorry Imitation of her elev ens In former rears. The men are very light and possess no redeeming feature but their pluck. Pennsylvania was with out Capt. Outland and Umrd McCrscken, and this naturally weakened her aggressive tactics very materially. Hlie rattled off a couple of touchdowns In the first four minutes in good style, but then seemed to let up, and the piny was spiritless and slow until the end of ihe game. Hare, while not playing his best game, gave an excellent exhibition, and Coach Lewis of Harvard, who was on the side lines, was greatly Impressed with his work. A Penn sylvsnian on the side lines remarked to Coach Lewis: "Well, you haven't any very alarming reports to carry back to Harvard of Pennsylvania's strength?" "Alarming enough," said Lewis. Next to the work of Hare, the hard line buck ing of Coombs was the biggest feature. Penn sylvania kicked the hall but four times the kick-off In the second half, one punt, and two quarter-back kicks. Hare scored the first touchdown after two minutes' play, and kicked inn goal. Two minutes Inter Walker made a touchdown, and Hare kicked the goal. Mix minutes after this Hedges, well protected bv Coomb, on an end run, secured a touch down, and Hare again kicked the goal. Walker made the last touchdown In this half, and a Roal again resulted from Hare's good left foot core for the half, 24 to 0. Walker made the first touchdown in ihe second half, and Jlare failed to kick the goal. Then Goodman made a touchdown and the goal was kicked. Tne last touchdown of the game was made by Coombs oatehingaquurter back kick and cross ing the Lehigh line. The goal failed.

Newton pntupasurprisfiigly strong game and the men from New Haven soon I found that only a very good article of football would enable them to win If not save them from defeat. The Yale team hardly played up i to the standard of former teams and fumbling and off-side play cost them considerable ground. I Sullivan at quarter Waa somewhat off In his work and failed to run his team in a manner satisfactory to the Yale coaches. The Yale line men found worthy opponents in the New ton men, and failed to make holes for the run ners. Ysle's ends were fairly outclassed by Newton's men, little Johnson of Newton easily taking care of any plays around his end. Yale kicked off in the first half and soon se cured the ball on fumble, but could not ad vance it, Newton's linn holding well. During the entire half Yale failed to get any nearer to Newton's goal than the twentr-flve-yard line, and lost the ball four times on downs. Yale started In to piny hard football at the opening of the second half, and after a sensational sixty- rard run Townsend. who had feplaced Corwin, carried thelball over the line, Irown goaled. Try as they would, the Yale I men could not score again and faifed to hold the ball, as Newton braced up and held them repeatedly for downs. For Yale.

The Carlisle Indians de feated Williams here to-dar by the score of 17 to 6. In the first half the teams were pretty evenly matched, but In the aeoond the superior endurance of the Indians gavo them the ad vantage, and they scored three touchdowns. In the first half Williams rushed the ball from the centre of the field to the Indian five-yard . line. There they lost the bsll on downs and I strong bucking hy Seneca, and II. Pierce car ried it to within two yards of the Williams goal. ' There H. Pierce fumbled: O'Neill secured the ball and ran the length of the field for n touch down. In the second half Carlisle had the kick off. Williams punted and the Indians secured the ballon Williams's fifty-yard line. Then an assault on the Williams line began and the In dians steadily pushed them down the field until Carou made a touchdown after five min utes of play. Soon after the next kick-off the t'ar lisles secured the ball on their thirty-yard line and again carried it down the field by strong rushes br H. Pierce and Metoren until Cayou scored the second touchdown. With but five minutes left to plav, the Indians again carried the ball from the contre of the field for a touch down, H.

Fifty second street and Eleventh avenue. The scene presented was a novel one. No admission fee was charged, and thousands of the residents of the district assembled to cheer the representa tives of their respective " gangs " on to victory. The costumes used were of every variety. Some wore the regulation spiked shoes, some light slippers, and some skipped over the cind ers with the soles of their feet bare as nature made them, but hardened by frequent contact with the sidewalks of New York. The proficiency of tbe urchins on the appa ratus so recently erected was remarkable. Their lithe and active limbs curled around the bars In a manner that surprised tho veteran gymnasts on the ground and testified to the efficient teaching of instructors O. A. Salmon snd H. W. Worth. The track was In fair condi tion, hut the sharp turns rendered fast ttme Impossible. Among the small bo s Bobble Murphy was the lion of the day. He finished first in three of the fire junior events, but as there was a stipulation that no one could lake more than two first prlr.es. he relinquished the first trophy in the 2.0-yard dash to J.

Mors Travel on the Bonlevarda Than There Wa n Tear Ago Point on Local Road Condition Michael Win Time Prise Over Ihe BUiabeth-SprlngAeld Course. Bicycle riders during the past week enjoyed one of the fairest days that autumn brings, and th number abroad on every road has been efficient testimony to the statement that there la a fall revival of interest in the exercise. It Is Interesting at this season to note that ac cording to carefully complied statistics, there Is On the popular boulevards more bicycle travel on week days and Sundays than there waa a year ago, in spite of the talk about oyoling being on the decline. A man who hns a bicycle tore on the Boulevard and another on the Coner Island road said reocntly: "The cold facts show that there Is more riding now In thu total than over before. What has caused the Impression ths t tho sport was decadent Is the difference In tho enthusiasm. Wheeling Is no longer a novel! y. There Is not tho hurrah over It them wns a yenr or two ago. That everybody should cycle Is taken aa a matter of course. Men and women learn to ride nnd go out on little trips without telling about it. There is less fuss, but not less In terest liieyele riding has becomo common. It has settled into an everr-dar affair. No one hails with surprise the declaration that you are learning to ride. It waa taken for granted that you do ride. -This is a healthier condition than that whloh existed In 1885 and 1R0O when there was a cycling boom. That hurt the port and the trade more than anything else. A reaction was inevitable. We have settled back Into the simple progressive psce which never should hare been quickened. Out of the boom we hive gained hundreds of thousands of new riders who will never quit the game, but one backslider makes more sensation than a thousand of the faithful, snd there have been a number who never should have ridden a bi cyclethose who started riding and quickly quit end they have been saying that bicycle riding waa too common and not good enough for them. The great commonalty of the sport is Its strength. I wish It was more com mon. I am not talking for the sake of making optimistic remarks. Rather I am lamenting that there are so many foolish persons In the game who croak when they should be jubilant The croaking of the trade has been to blame for the discouragement of many riders. Deal ers do not get as good prices as formerly and although they sell more wheels and sundries, they say that oyoling is declining. They re mind me of the disappointed Klondlkera who expected easy money by the barrel. "There was unmistakably a marked falling off In the riding of last summer, but the rea sons for it are plain. We had an unusually . chilly and rainy spring and a summer of in tolerable heat Men and women got out of tbe habit of riding. Habit is everything in any sport or industry. They did not want to ride Id a cold, drizzling rain, or go out on a day when it was too hot to be comfortable In a ham mock. Now they are getting into the habit again, and by actual count there Is more wheel ing than in the boom years. It is differently dis tributed, and that Is well, for it is doing good in a wider field. For my part I am glad that the boom la over. If there never had been any boom you never would have heard any non sense about cycling losing ground. From a tradesman's viewpoint I am rejoicing in the amount of fall riding. Those who renew the habit of the exercise will be looking for new wheels In the spring, and further, the crowd that Is out laadully continual ion of the proposi tion that wheeling has outgrown its original season and is a sport for all the year round." Some new points on local road conditions furnished in the weekly bulletin of the New York State division are as follows: Cyclists are warned to be cautious when riding through the following streets, which are asphalted and partly blocked by building material: One hun dred and Seventeenth street, between Eighth and Manhattan avenues : Kliith street, between Columbus and Amsterdam avenues; lisitli street between Central Park and the Boule vard: Ninety-sixth street west of Columbus avenue: Nlnotr-flrst street, west of Columbus avenue: Eighty-second and Eighty-third streets, west of Amsterdam avonue; Twenty sixth street, west of Ninth avenue, and Thlrtr sevonth street, west of Eighth avenue. Therels a bad hole in the asphalt at Fortr-second street and Madison avenue, and also one betwoen Mndlson and Second avenues on Twelfth and Fifteenth streets. In the borough of the Bronx. Webster. Willis, St. Ann's. Westchester. College anil Alexander avenues are all good, while Sedgwick. Bailer and Mott avenues are fair to poor. The Fordhatn road, Tremont I avenue and 177th street are poor. Main street. j nt Fort Chester. Is almost impassable. On Long Island the rain has put the light dirt and sandr roads In good shape, no serious gullies or washouts being Tenoned. Mncadum roads, especially those lately finished, arc better than ever, being free from dust and well packed. The South Shore Merrick road is In good condi tion from Jamaica through Hrookhnven.cxcopt at Lrnbrook. where the Merrick road is being i repaired. The soft places on the Shlnnecock hills have been roloamed, and this stretch Is , better than for rears. Long Branch, from . Ilockville Centre for a short stretch, is not yet I macadamized. The Hempstead road through I Oarden City to Mineola road Is not flni-li. d. Tho roads around Glen Covo are nearly com pleted nnd are in fair condition. The macadam 1 roads of the borough of Richmond are excel I lent Some very soft earth roads are reported lu New Jersey because of recent rains, but generally speaking, the riding is tine. The open century run of 175 riders, which started yesterday morning in three divisions from the Bedford avenue fountain. Brooklyn, finished on schedule time last night. Tho first division, with E. 8. Edwards making pace, ar rived at 5:2tl o'clock. It Is the first century that Edwards hns covered since he completed his 250th consecutive run and went to bed with typhoid pneumonia. Edwards was in the lend at the finish, riding side by side with Adolph Ontinuii and M. A. King of tho Manhat tan Bicycle Club, who were on a tandem. There were live cliainless wheels In the run, but women anil minors were excluded. The riders reported that they found the roads in maanlfl oent condition, but that the wind was fierce snd mado it very hard lodalllng. The route of the run was the local one to Bath Bench. Coner Island. Koekuwiir, Lynbrook, Hempstead nnd Jamaica, known as the Vigilant Cycle Club Course. With tho wind blowing at a rate that made slow riding hard, forty-eight mon started In the twenty-rlvo-mlle road raco over the Ellza-beth-sprliigllold course resterday afternoon and rode out a prettr contest. Seventeen of the starters were cheeked at the finish, the other" having either dropped out or straggled In so far behind thut they were counted as non-finishers. There wns an I exciting struggle between the scratch men for the time prize. Michael. Nunz and Hansen were the back mark riders, snd titer finished nearly abreast after lighting every foot of the way. The four men who started from the limit kept together all tho way and wure not boade.l. I It wna a hard day for high gears, for the course I is a hilly one, anil climbing the inclines In the face of the gale wns difficult for the men with thu lowest gears. The start was made at Union, and from there thu ride was to Elizabeth, then back and over to Sprlnglleld and return. A. Michael, who won the tlmo prize. Is a new rider who won the same kind of a prize in the race of the Hudson County Whecitnen. He rode a wheel geared to 87 S. and nt tho finish was aided by the wind blowing on his back, At the start John Letzelter, a policeman of New ark, was pushed off fifteen second ahead of his time. The referee was undecided whether to deduct his time or ilisiiuallfv him until the checkers at the turn reiiorted that he had not been chocked. Ho was then disqualified for falling lo niiiko thu turns, although he finished in sixth place. Carl Hansen of Newark, who finished thirteenth, was dlsiiuallllod for the same reason. The time of 1 hour 7 minutes 63 2-5 seconds, male by Michael, was regarded as splendid, considering the high win. Is and rough condition of the roads. It was rumored at the course thut Michael Is tho muoh-tulked about " unknown " who will meet (.'hurley Earl in a one-hour paced race on election day. Sum mary: Handicap. Net Time.
