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.
Vanderbilt—Positions: Hughes, cen
ter; Williamson, right guard; Elliott,
right tackle; Keller, right end; Johnson,
left guard; Klttrel, left tackle; Smith,
left end; Connor, quarter back; Lynch

m THE RACES,
Baltimore, Md., Nov. 16.—The races at
Pimlico today concluded with the Green
Spring Valley cup, a steeplechase over
the full course, and it was a corker. The
conditions provided that the horses
should be owned and ridden by members
of the Elkridge, Green Spring Valley or
Chevy Chase Huijt clubs. But two of
the six starters wfnt the course. The
favorite, Chevy Chase, finished second to
Empress, but was disqualified for having
gone wrong. Silver Bill, the only other
horse to finish, was placed second. Nadji
bolted at the fifth jump and gave Mr.
Hall a ba<j fall. The talent was in good
form in the other races and picked four
of the five winners. The only non
favorite, with the exception of the stee
plechase was The Sage, in the first race,
at 10 to 1. Summaries:

HOW WHALES LOVE.

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.
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

Almost identical with the drift of this

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
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.
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.
