VANDERBILT IS DEFEATED!
By the University of Virginia Dy THE SCORE WAS SIX TO FOUR Connell, Vanderbilt's Star Player, Was Badly Hurt, But He Made a Wonder Atlanta, Nov. 16.—The game between Vanderbilt and the University ot Vir ginia here this afternoon resulted In fa vor of Virginia by 6 to 4. In the first half Virginia by fine bucking and interfer ence. made a touchdown, an easy goal being kicked by Davis. Vanderbilt held Virginia back In splendid style and made several runs. This half showed that Vanderbilt would splay a steady, scien tific game, although Virginia was In clined to take an unfair advantage at times. Connell, Vanderbilt's full back and star player, was badly hurt, but he continued in the game. The second half opened with Vander bilt in defense of the jiphill goal. In four minutes, by very fine Interference, Con nell was enabled to make a touchdown. This was done by a remarkable run of seventy yards, and In the midst of great excitement the left guard failed to kick goal. After this run Connell could scarcely remain in the game, hut his wonderful pluck displayed Itself and he kept on. Vanderbilt clearly outplayed Virginia in this half. Conner. Vander bilt's quarterback, made a fine run of thirty yards by a quick pass and clever interference. The game ended with the ball on Virginia’s forty-five yard line and in Vanderbilt's possession. It looked as though a few minutes more would give Vanderbilt a touchdown. The teams lined up as follows: Virginia—Positions: Killebrew, cen ter; Penton, right guard; Davis, right tackle; Cock, right end; Morris, left guard; Pilcher, left tackle; Jones, left end; Hoxton, quarterback; Newell, left half back; Lambert, full back; Biggs, right half back.

Too Mur Lever* to Heqdle to stop a Car ai Quickly as He_MI*ht. Wo believe that it has been very fairly demonstrated that a four wheeled oar can lie brought to a standstill by the hand brake \ylthln a spaoo so short ihijf neither the airhrafce nor tin; fctecMc hrak<i foil'd do much bettor, nu3 that iff^oiuetn favor of tho two fatTer~s ti'i^re Than coun terbalanced By cirtgln (Tisadvantages in herent In then). A cat/lo car Is by no means as honvy as a motor car, nor Is there a cable line anywhere In the country • running at as great n spccrl as electric cars are habitually driven. Wo think also that thero is no question at all but that an elec tric enr, howlt hstanding Its greater weight, can be stepped more quickly than can a cable car and that nil it roquiros with Its present braking facilities Is thut those fa cilities should bn applied Intelligently. A cable car cannot bock out nor rely upon anything to stop its coarse but the adhesion of tho whoels on tho track. With tho electric car, as with tho steam locomo tive, tho whoels may bo reversed ns soon ns tliu speed is reduced so I hat tills tnny bo dono without skidding. ' The storage I lot tery enr is moro difficult to stop than the trolley, if both am at the samo speed, sim ply because the storage battery car weighs just about twico ns much as tho hcaviost cable car. Tho greatest trouble, in our opinion, with tho braking facilities of our electric cars is that the motorman has too much to do already. He has the controlling lover In one hand, tho brake lever in t he other, a reversing switch, which wo suppose ho Is ospootod to control with his tooth, whllo ho blows n whistlo with his mouth; a boll push to occupy one of his foot and the pawl on the brake ratohot which his other foot is intended to control and n sand valve that must l>e operated somehow. Thero is n canopy switoh also, which, if he bo vory tall and sprightly, ho might work with tho top of his hond. Now, supposing wo ndd an emergency brake or two, ns The American Machinist would have us do, that would have to bo controlled in tho samo way that tho one armed lifer held bis fife whllo passing his hat for nlms, and this, we think, would not be an effective method of control.—Electricity. HOW WHALES LOVE. The Mother Whale la Faithful to Her Off. spring Even In Heath. Captain Scorosby relates how one of his harpooners, having struck a young whalo in ordor to secure tho mother, sow her In stantly arise, wrap her clippers round her young one and descend, dragging about 600 feet of line out of the boat with mar velous force and velocity. Again she rose to the surface, darted furiously to and fro, frequently stopped short or suddenly changed lior direction, giving every possi ble intonation of agony. Tho boats continued to pursue horoloso ly for a length of timo, while sho, poor creature, seemed utterly regardless of the dnngers which surrounded her. At last one of tho boats approached so near that a harpoon was thriiwri at her, thon a second haVpoori anu a third. Still sho did not at tempt to escape, but allowed the other boats to approach, so that more harpoons wore attached, till, in the course of an hour, tho poor unimal was killed. The fidelity of the male and female whale to each othor exceeds that of most nnimfUs. Anderson, in his “lllstsry of Greenland,” mentions that, some flsher hnon having struck one of two whales, a male and a female that wore in company togethor, the woundod oreature made a long and terrible resistance. With a single blow of its tail it upset a boat containing three men, by which they all went to tho bottom. When another boat came up, the other whalo still re mained by its companion and lent every assistance, till at last the wounded victim sank undor tho numbor nnd severity of its wounds, while its faithful partnor, unable to survive Its loss, stretched hcrsolf upon tho dead body of her mate and calmly shared its fato.—New York Dispatch. Accommodating Landlord. A correspondent assures us that he never know that ltwaspossiblofor an inn keeper to bo too accommodating to his guosts until he went down to Nova Scotia rccontly and put up at a pleasant llttlo ho tel in tho oountry. The landlord of this hotel laid it down as one of his principles of action to give peoplo a little more than they asked for—to bo “extra accommodat ing,” as ho termed it. The landlord brilliantly illustrated his adheronco to this principle the very morn ing after our correspondent 's arrival at the hotel. Tho guost had to go away on the 7 o'clock train that morning and nsked the proprietor to call him at 6. The guost went to sleep in the oalm assurance that ho should be aroused at the proper hour. He soemed hardly to have fallen into a sound sleep when he heard a terrlflo pound ing at his door. Ho sprang up widoawake. “What’s tho matter!”’ he called out. “Four o’clock! Four o’clock I” came tho landlord's voice from tho othor sldo of tho door. “Two hours more to sleep!” It is needless to say that the guest slept no more that morning. The landlord's anxiety to bo “extra accommodating” fail ed of its mark that time.—Youth's Com panion.

Turks Say Armenians Did It and Mr. Jew ett Says Turks Did It. London, Nov. 16,—A representative of the United Press at Constantinople re ports under date of November 15 that at 6 o’clock on the evening of^ November 15 A. Jewett, United Stahls consul al Sivas, sent a lelegfrafft to United States Minister Terrell Informing "him that the disturbances which had taken place at Sivas 800 Armenians and ten Turks had been killed, and that according to official .reports a large body of Turks were then approaching town, Jewett gave no de tails of (he disorders,but the discrepancy in the figures shows that the Turkish allegations that the Armenians were ag gressors are absolutely untrue and that the Armenians were deliberately massa cred. ! Minister Terrell has also received a dis patch from Harjlool, in the Pashalik of Dlarbekir, and sixty miles west north west of the city of that name. The dis patch is dated November 13, and says that the lives of the oceupans of four of the buildings burned at that place were saved and the occupants of eight other burned houses perished in the flames. The remaining houses were stripped of every article of value. The country In that'vicinity, the dispatch says, is deso late and thousands of persons are home less and destitute, in fact-.'starving. The burned buildings, .including missionary buildings, of whidh twelve were situated within the compound or enclosure and are occupied by twelve Armenian families and 500 theological students. A ladies’ seminary is also within the enclosure. A dispatch from Madrid, in the Pasha Ilk of Dlarbekir, dated November 13, says the inhabitants of the villages burned in that vicinity are in the direst need of food and clothing and many are dying from starvation and exposure. It is stated in dispatches from perfectly reliable authority that in the Syrian dis trict of Curunden 4000 men, women and children have been killed and many oth ers are suffering from wounds and lack of medicines, food and clothing. Missionaries Spared. Boston, Nov. 16—The following cable message has been received by the Amer ican Mission board from Rev. H. Dwight of Constantinople by way of Phillipolis: "Five hundred were killed In Harpot; eight of twelve mission buildings burned; missionaries’ lives spared; houses stripped; Turks will regard this as test of intention of United States to defend missions; no missionaries anywhere killed; villages everywhere desolated; people naked and starving; instant help.” The buildings destroyed are estimated to be worth from $75,000 to $100,000. Har pot is a city in Armenia. 200 miles south west of Erzeroum and about twenty miles east of the Euphrates. Its chief importance lies In its position. It is the center of a large number of villages cov ering an extended plain and constituting the only section of Armenia where the Armelans can fairly claim to constitute a majority of the population. As sych it has b§fn for many ygars Jhe most im portant and gyccessful station of the Apcfm In eastern Turkey. The city It self has a large Turkish population, but the place is almost entirely Armenian. It is the seat of Euphrates college. The Bond Story Denied. Washington, Nov. 16.—Secretary Car lisle did not come to the treasury today, but spent the time at his residence work ing on his arlnual report.

As sistant Secretary Hamlin said he knew nothing about it. and another high offi cial, who declined to be quoted as mak ing's statement, said there was absolute ly no truth In the report.
