A lavge force ii nands is al ".vork and Uie new rail _.._ been laid ready for concrel ing as far as Cumberland Street on the south bound track. The company has arranged to comply with the City Engineer's requirements, and has ordered iron pole coiistruction for the entire loop. This new construction will be upon the route authorized by tiie new franchise of the Passenger and Power Company, as follows: Sbuthwardly on Laurel to Cumberland and ir m -thal point a single track loop weslwcid'.y on Cumberland to Cherry Street: thence southwardly on Cherry to Albemarle; thence eaSt-wardly on Albe? marle to Laurel; thence northwardly on Laurel and eonnecting with the eastern track at Cumberland Street. This loop will be laid its entire length witli ninety-five-pound grooved girder rail, :n accordance with the requirements of the City Engineer's department and similar to the track now being laid by this com? pany i'- other parts of the city. Rail being in lengths of sixty feet, it is claimed that the track will be more lasting, even, and satisfactory than if shorter lengths were used. BETTER FACILITIES. This track from Hollywood to Main Street is being laid in accordance with the requirements of a resolution offered _ by Alderman Whittet and passed by Uie Street Committee at its last meeting. with a view to securing to the peopie bet? ter facili'ties on tho Main Street line. lt is claimed by friend. of the Passen? ger and Power Company that the placing of this additional line from Hollywood and Oregon Hill down Main Street all the way to Fulton will give the public better facilities not only through the busi? ness and residence sec-tions of Main Street, but 'Will enable a great many people who reside in tho southwestern portion of the city to reach the factories in the lower part of Main Street and Fulton without ehanging cars. General Superintendent Calvin Whiteley, Jr., of the Passenger and Power Com? pany. who is also engineer for the com? pany, stated yesterday that he had been able to considerably increase the service already on both of the main lines?Clay Streetand Main Street?and that he was now giving on Main Street a four minute schedule, which is increased to a three minute schedule during the busy hours of the early morning and the afternoon. He added that on the Clay Street line he was giving a schedule ranging from four to five minutes, according to the demands of traffic. Mr. Whiteley remarked that he was very much embarrassed frequently by de lays on tiie Main Sireet line. caused by the stopping of cars at the railroad cross ings in Fulton, and that as the public probably did not understand this delay, he had* no doubt his company was fre? quently blamgd when it was not at fault, as the cars are often stopped from five to fifteen minutes. -These delays, added to the ordinary delays incident to heavy business on Main Street frequently cause irregular intervals and consequent annoy ance to the traveling public. "It is impossible," said Mr. Whiteley, "to avoid this entirely. but we are doing the best we can and feel sure that when the matter is brought to the attention of the C. & O. ofiicials, they will aid us by preventing the stoppage of our cars in Fulton as far as possible." Superintendent Whiteley, though he has not recently resided in Richmond. was some years ago?in 1SS1 and 1SS2?engaged in the engineering department of the Richmond and Danviile and York River R R. lines, when lhe road was under the control of Colonel Buford as president and Colonel T. M. R. Talcoft as general mtt-his'time Col. II. T. Douglass, now of the New York Subway Commission, was ohief engineer. When Col. Douglass was appointed chief engineer of the Baltimore and Ohio iri 'S3. Mr. Whiteley went with him and was appointed resident engineer of the Baltimore end of the road. then building from Baltimore to Philadelphia. Since that time he has had vaned c-\ perience in cable, steam and electric raii .bading, having been engaged with street railway lines in Baltimore. both cable and electric. and on the Columbia and Maryland Railroad between Baltimore and Washington. having charge of the erec tion of power houses for that line. Mr. Whiteley was also engaged by the city of Baltimore on its great topographi cal survev. where his work was highly eulogized "in the reports of the topographi cal commission appointed by that city. Mi.DE SEABOARD SUR-E-. About three years ago Mr. Whittley was sent here. by New York capita ists, to make a survcy and locare for the road through the city of Richmond. which has recently been built by the Seaboard Air Line.

To-day Yale administered to Harvard a Waterioo to the tune of 2S to 0. It was Yale from the tirst kick off. and the war riors of the blue ieemed bent on punishing Harvard to the limit. In the li.rst half Yale scored two toucli downs. ln the second half she repeated this performance, and in addtion to tear ing Harvard to pieees for two touchdowns, ?Sharpe, the Yaie half back. lined a field goal from tlie 25-yard line.

Burnett had succeeded Lee just before the first half ended shortiy after the kick off for the second period t'ne crimson sup porters were thrown into a panic, when Daly, who had bera limping, went to the side lines, and Harvard had lost her cap? tain. In rapid sucession Harvard's men stir rendered, and before the game was over, the crimson team had played twenty men. The only Yale man to leave was Oleott, the center, who, with five minutes to play. had sustained a biow on the head, and Holt took his place.

Five Thousand People Witnessed the Struggle for Supremacy, PLENTY OF GINGER IN IT. Fast Work and Ablo Generalship Secured Victory for the Chani pions of the Oranso and Blue?Gamo nt Nor? folk Told in Detail, (From Staff Correspondent.) NORFOLK, VA., Nov. *_1.-Virginia de? feated North Carolina here this afternoon bv a score of 17 to 0. The game was piayed at the Baseball Park, and was witnessed bv five thousand people. To-night Nor? folk helongs to Virginia. and they are in full possession of their property. The ?amc was one .of intense interest from start to finish and was replete with brillian* plays made by both elevens. This was the first time in two years these teams '.a.ve met. so the game whieh de cides the championship of the South was one in which there was great interest, ancl had been discussed in football circles for weeks past. It awoke the old rivalry which has exLsted between thiT two insti? tutions ever since tho game has been piayed by them, and yesterday i't seemeel to have been aroused with new vigor from its sleep, ancl burst on the citizens of Nor? folk in a storm of wild enthusiasm, which suept all before it. Business was in a measure suspended, and from every point come tho college yells. All. old and young alike, joined in, and the day was a novel experience for the citizens of Norfolk, who had never before entertained 'Varsity elevens and their followers. The teanvs were quartered at the Monti? ceilo. -which. upon their arrival, became football headquarters. That hostelry was thronged with "rooters," and rang with yells and college songs. The Stonewall Band, of Staunton, ac companied the Virg'nia team, and in the cor.tinuous impromptu programme running day and night in the hotel lobby, took a leading part. Money was plenty. and above all could be heard the cry "Carolina money," "Vir? ginia coin." Betting ran very irregular, some giving odds on Virginia and others on North Carolina. Towards the beginning of the game. it became more even, and many bets at even money were placed. Every train ancl boat coming into Nor? folk to-day brought crowds. and there were fully two thousand visitors in town before 2 o'ciock, when the march towards the field began. The train from Rich? mond and Petersburg arrived a little after 11 o'ciock, with e\ght coaches filled with wearers of the Orange and Blue, who soon made known their presence in the city. ln the balconies at the Monticeilo were gathered crcwds of beautiful girls. who bore the flags and wore the colors of their favorite elevens. The orange and blue of Virginia predominated here. but in the .'?urging mass below there were as many backers of Carolina as of Virginia. THOUSANDS SAW IT. Long before the game began everything and everybody seemed to jbe on the move toward the lield, street-cars were scarce. and those operating were crowded to =uffo cation. Thousands walked, and hundreds of others less energetic. rode in cabs, wsKgons ar.d carts. In short, "any old thing with wheeis" was pressed into ser? vice, and went to form a most motiey caravan. The grandstand, b!eaer!-rs and side lines soon began to take on life. ancl by the time the game was begun fully five thou? sand persons surrounded the tield. The scene was one imposing. Frags, ribbons, canes and hat., were in the air. A gian.ee over the side-lines reminded one of a tem pest ir. a brilliant flower garden. ? the familiar y.ell of "Old U: Va." rang out, close followed by a liutter of white and blue. and 'North Carolina would be heard from. "God bless Old LT. Va." would for a time cause a hush. which would be but a calm before the pending storra of gene? ral vells and songs. <___. THE SIDE-LINES. On the side-lines and in the bleachers were alurr.ni of both instituions, many of whom, in their day, had piayed on the teams. They watched the play with long ing eyes, and like veterans were wishing they could turn time backward in its flight. Among them were: From Virginia: Lawdon Carney. half bnck '95; Tecdore Garnett. Julian Hill. of '94; Bob Groner. Walter Taylor, Sanders Taylor, quarter back of '95; George Par rish. Robert F. Hughes, Randolph French, "Old Time" Massie. of Newport News; H. S. Bailey, J. G.

Before the game both teams were con fiden: of victory. They were in good trim for the struggle, and each knew by past experience what they were to meet. They had taken breakfast at the hotel and a light lunch before going on the field. Both teams reaehed the gr.'diron ubout _:_., and after brief conferences with coachers, went on the tield amid the wildest wel come. After a short delay Virginia won the to_s, and chose the northern goal. Full thirtv-five minute halves were decided upon. and the game was besun a't 2:15. Graves, for Carolina, kioked off forty yards to Bennett, who gained five yards before being downed by Martin. With Virg'nia's hall on the thirty-five yard Iine, Dabney opened the play with a thirty-five yard-run behlnd interferer.ee by Walker and Coleman. Rennett hit the line for five more, Coleman followed with two, and Walker went through for ten yards. Coleman gained five nnd' Dabney falled.
