Snrc Winner—An Annnnl Event.
The last of the great foot-hall games
of the yenr will be the splendid strug-^
Ble to-day between tne army and navy
teams, composed of cadets of the United
States Military Academy at West "Point
and the United States Naval Academy at
Annapolis. As usual, these two teams will
meet and fight out tho tmttle for the hon-^
on* at Franklin field, Philadelphia, and!
the game will be witnessed by the most
brilliant and distinguished throng that
has watched any of the games of the
year. Tne President will be there, as will
many of the most prominent officers in
the army and navy, and a great repre
sentation of the' official diplomatic cir
cle. Besides there will be many of the
greatest foot-ball players in the country
and the cream of Washington. Philadel
phia, New York. and Maryland society,
with representatives " from every State.
-\s a spectacle the game is one of 'the
Jinest -afforded during the year.
The rivalry between the two teams "has
usually been such as to insure a close and
spirited contest, despite the superiority
of tho opposing team, but this year it is
believed that West Point is so far sujit
rior to the navy team that there Is little
prospect for the other team to score.
The army team •averages 175 pounds in
weight and has made the most brilliant
record ever made by a West Point eleven!
Harvard alone has defeated the lieuten
ants, Yale only being able to tie. The
West Pointers have had a walkover -.with
all the other teams they have played.
On the other hand, the middies are con
siderably lighter In weight, and have tht
poorest record of any naval academy
ream in years, having lost nearly all
their jrarr.es and tied others, winning few.
Nevertheless- the two teams will put up a
splendid struggle to-day. They always
do. If indications count for anything,
the army team will defeat Annapolis as
badly ns th«» Virginia Polytechnic Insti
tute boat Virginia Military Institute
Thursday at Norfolk. West Point's score
will hardly be so bad as that, and th«;
eleven may surprise the public by giving
West Point a surprise. West Point again
has the wondeifiil Daly. Harvard's quar
terback/ whose brilliant play practicall>
won the game' last year, and her other
backs are all veterans. Hackett, Shan
non, and Bunktr have all proved then
prowess. The navy team is largely new
material, but there are a few of last
year's eleven left. Here nre tne records
of the two for the season:
West Point. 5: Tufts. 0.
West Point, 11; Dickinson 0.
V7U& Foint, »: WilHnms. 0.
West Point. R: Harvard 14.
West Point, fi; Yale.P
West Point, SG; Union. 0.
Annapolis 0; Georgetown. 4: (two safe
ties.) 'J
Annapolis. 0: Princeton. 11.
Annapolis. 5: Lehigh. 5.

Annapolis, fi;' 1 University of Pennsyl
vania', 5.
Annapolis. 0: Perm State. 6.
Annapolis. 12; Lafayette. 11.
Annapolis. 0: Buckner. 23.
So far as scores indicate it would appear
that Annapolis is Twenty -points, weaker
than W^st. Point. But it . would be very
safe to place n wager on that. In fact,
it would cause but a temporary surprise
if the middies won.' But it would cause
a surprise, for it would upset all the
calculations of the sharps. Certainly it
will bo a spirited struggle; and those for
tunate enough'" to get tickets are envied
by thousands who cannot obtain' them
for. less than twenty dollars each, and
nro paying speculators that much for
them. -V

Mr. Glenn opposed the midnight closing
hour, on the ground that it was impossi
ble for people coming from the theatre
to get the necessary refreshment and
vacate the bars before the midnigrhthour.
The ordinance referring- to the removal
of screens was brought' up for considera
tion. On motion of Mr. Spence, the ques

three, to consult with the City Attorney,
and report back to the main committee
as soon as possible. Messrs. Minor. Glenn,

afternoon, with the following members

heard. He asked that $1,700 be trans
ferred from the expense account to the

ing force for the rest of the year. On
motion of Mr. Shea, the transfer was re
commended to the' Council. :
The' committee h.-*«*3 the report of the
sub-committee on improving the condition
of the alleys. The sub-committee recom
mended that the removal of ashes and
garbage be divorced from the street clean
ing department, and put under the super
vision of the Board of Health. Mr. Shea
submitted a minority report recommend
ing that the street cleaning department
be maintained as constituted at present,
and that an assistant to- the superinten
dent be appointed at a salary of $00 a
month to attend to the- matter of re
moving the ashes and garbage, and to
perform other duties that the superinten
dent may direct. Mr. Hicks. moved to.re
lect both recommendations, but it > was

Gentlemen.— Replying to a "communica
tion from your clerk, under date of No
vember 21st, asking my opinion "whether
registrars should have made any regis
tration in "consequence of the "new regis
tration authorized by the new Constitu
tion, and whether the claims, made are
just and proper,' and should be paid by
the city. '" I beg to say that. by virtue of
the new Constitution which became ef
fective on the 10th day of July. 1902. and
an ordinance by the Constitutional Con
vention adopted, . providing for ; the reg
istration of ail voters under the new
Constitution, all registrars under the old
Constitution became functus officio on
July 10.. 1902— that is. they, were no . longer'

The announcement of the appointment
by . President Roosevelt; of ex-Judge
Lunsfortl L. Lewis, of this city, to be
United States Attorney, for the Eastern
District of Virginia, made, yesterday,
while.a source or general gratification to
the friends of that able lawyer, Was not
altogether a surprise to them. / Recently
the name of Judge Lewis had been fre
quently mentioned in this connection,
though never with any knowledge on his
part that such .'publication would be
made. In fact, .there ■ is abundant evi
dence that he was not even a* candidate
for the 'position, and it is. said the "offer
of the position to him was entirely un
solicited. It is understood, that Judge
Lewis will accept the proffered post. .
'The new attorney is and has long been
a resident and practicing attorney of
Richmond, where he ranks high at. th*
bar and in social and business circles.
His law practice is said to be large: anc
lucrative. .Hennas devoted himself assio
uously to the duties • of -the' profession
since his retirement from the bench o'
the Court, of Appeals, and . ha*
refrained from conspicuous participc-.
tion in politics, if indeed he' may be sair]
to- have taken' any part, further thai,
that which is the duty of every good
citizen. Though repeatedly urged to stand
for elective or appointive offices, he has
in every case promptly and positively
'declined to do so, preferring to keep_ oxu
ofpolitics in the generally accepted sense,
of the term. ■
Frequently he . could have been norm-.
mated for office had he but consented tc
allow the use of his name, but he would
not, resisting I . all pressure brought to beai
on him to-do so in such a positive way
that those urging' him ceased to do sc
further. Last year he could have had thi
Republican nomination for Governor,
but woul&oiot -consider, the suggestion oi
his name in that connection. There woulc
have been no factional difference as I 1;I 1 ;
the congressional nominee had he con
sented to be. an aspirant. But he woulc
The appointment of Judge Lewis is re
garded by many as an effort on the par
of the President to favor neither of tin
factions in this district,' both of whicl
had candidates for the position. The'emi
nent fitness of the appointee was doubt
less a potent consideration in the choict
General Allan, the incumbent, had strong
endorsements from all over, the country,
and all parties, but he was opposed by s
large faction of his party in this city, in
cluding many of the Federal officials anc
by many influential Republicans in othe;
parts of the State. . Hon. R. T. Thorp
of Norfolk, was a candidate for the posi
tion also, representing the faction which
opposed General". Allan'; Judge Lewit
was identified with neither faction, anf
stands high with all factions and parties
..-' Judge Lewis won that title .by his elec
■tion-'to and service on the bench of th-
Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia
from which he retired when the presen!
court was elected, having served thereon
With distinction- for the term, twelve
years. Pie was president of the court,

Judges Lacy. Richardson, Fauntlerby
and -Hinton. Since his retirement fron
the bench Judge Lewis has practiced hi.
profession in this city.! His- term will
begin in December as district attorney. •
Since the 'appointment of Judge -Lewis,
interest- now centers in the selection o'
an assistant. Mr. Hugh Gordin. Miller Is
assistant to Attorney. Allan, and is : re
garded as a candidate for the sanie posi
tion under the = new appointee. Among
others who have been mentioned as avail
able men for the. place are Mr. Robert H.
Tallej"./ referee in bankruptcy, and Mr
Malcolm. A. Coles,: who is attached to the
office of - Marshal:' Treat. All attempts
to name, the assistant at this time aro
purely ; speculative. ■ .
Considerable surprise 'is manifested t>y

not reapppinted. for - another term. ..He
