VANQUISHED BY A SCORE OF M TO 4 Two Thousand Spectator Witness the Contest Tho Tigers Have Things About Their Own Wtiyl)c tails of the liunieCloinc Contest of the Season. lrlneeton, N. J., Nov. 23. The foot ball season closed here today by the Princeton's freshmen defeating the Yale freshmen by the score of H to 4. About 2,000 spectators turned out tp see the contest but there were few representatives from New Haven pres ent. The young tigers had things pretty much their own way during the first half, but in the second the Yale team showed the advantage they had gained by steady practice for some time past, while Princeton RtoO was to a great extent a picked-up eleven and had had little opportunity of learning team idav. Princeton had better men In everv position with the exception of the center trio where Suthpin and Marshall made things hot for their opponents. The only thins that kept Yale from scorinc once or twice was their fumbling nt critical times. Their best gains were made by muss plays on the center und by using the quarter buck trick around Ogelt'by's end. Princeton made the most ground by working Yale's ends which were quite weak, and by gains on Wheeler's punts. Wheeler punted well but both elevens depended mainlv on line kicks. Yale won the toss and chose to de. fend the south goal. After the kick off Princeton got the bull within 25 yards of Yale's goal and rushed it to the line. Yale held for four downs, and on attempting to punt lirlnley wus tackled behind his line by Lathrop for a safety nfter three minutes of play. Score: Princeton, 2; Y'ale, 0. About a minute later Held blocked a punt and started for the goal with the ball, hut wus tackled ten yards from the line. A few rushes brought the leather to the line and Palmer carried It over. . Wheeler failed of goal, score. Princeton. 6; Yale, 0. Princeton got the ball ngain and took It to Yale's 20-yard line. Retd then carried It around right guard for n touch-down. Wheeler again failed to kick goal. Score: Princeton, In; Y'ale, 0. Yule worked the ball to Princeton's :i0-yard line, but lost on a fumble. Time for the first half was called with the ball in Princeton's possession on Yale's 33-yard line. Second half: Hiblebrnnd caught the ball on the kick olt and run 45 yards in about two minutes. Wheeler crossed the line with the ball for nnother touch down, but he failed of goal. Score, Princeton, 11; Y'ule, 0. A run of 35 yards by Corwin brought the bull to within 15 yards of Princeton's goal, and on a trick play he went around Cadwallader for a ' touchdown, but Scheweppe failed to kick eoul. Score: Princeton, I t: Yale, 4. Yale again car ried . the leather forty yards Into Princeton's territory, but fumbled. Month got the ball and Poe brought It back 35 yards, Princeton lost the ball for off side piny, but after plays netting twenty yards It again became Princeton's on downs. Time wns called with the ball In Princeton's possession on Yale's 45-yard line. The llnal score was; Princeton, 14: Y'ale, 4. PENNSYLVANIA-CORNELL GAME. Preparations for nn F.tcitiug Contest nt Philadelphia. Philadelphia, Nov. 25. The Inst foot ball game of the season of lsnii between the big eastern colleges will be played tomorrow by Cornell and Pennsylva nia on Franklin Held. The Cornell sub stitutes, conches und rubbers, In all about twenty-nine men, arrived here this evening from Ithaca, and are quartered at the Hotel Stentoti. That Pennsylvania will win tomorrow is al most a foregone conclusion, but Cor nell always plays a hard und plucky game: and, as the Ithncans are In much better condition than when they met Harvard nnd Princeton, and will als.j have the full strength of their teun out for nearly the llrst time this sea Son, a good game is looked for. While the Cornelllans do not expect to win, they do expect to score. They are counting on Pennsylvania's two fatal faults of this season a fumble or a blocked kick to aid them ucross the goal line of the red and blue. Aside from either one of these two causes it Is improbable that Cornell will score, as Pennsylvania's defense this yar has been absolutely impregnable to every team they have played, und the only times they have been scored upon was on a blocked kick nenr their goal line. With the Cornell Foot Hull team to day came the Ithacans Cross Count! ' team. Pennsylvania and Cornell to morrow will have their nuniinl live nil" cross country run and the finish will he before the grand stand on Franklin Held Just before the foot ball game begins. Cornell won the race last yei'.r ami Is confident of winning again this year. The two foot ball teams will line up as follows: Cornell. Position. Pennsylvania.

While the findings of the naval court which in vestigated the recent foundering of the battleship Texas, have not yet reached the department, it is learned that with out extensive alterations, it Is very doubtful whether the Texas can again be ordered to sea. The evidence wns adduced to show that six of her compartments leaked when her engine room w as Hooded, and that a leak sprunir In unv one of them at sea would have surely caused the total loos of the ship. Not only were nil the ulleged "water tisht" doors found to be abortive, but In the opin ion of at least one member of the court "her whole bulkhead system is utterly useless." ESCAPED FROM PANTHERS.
