GAMES SCHEDULED FOR
New York. October 18.-—Hundreds of
New Yorkers will have their first
taste of foot ball this season tomorrow,
when Yale meets West Point on the
military school campus. A great crowd
of partisans of both institutions will
go up from the metropolis to witness
the contest, which promises to be the
most Interesting played thus far this
The soldier squad has de
veloped in good shape and will likely
make the Elis earn their victory.
While the soldiers are contesting
honors wtih Yale. Harvard will be
playing the sailors at Annapolis. The
crimson eleven leaves today on its
invasion of the South, accompanied by
a large band of rooters, who are con
fident that the Cambridge lads will
roll up an overwhelming score against
Uncle Sam's gallant sailormen. This
will be the only game Harvard will
play away from here this year.
Of the other games to be played on
eastern gridirons tomorrow, that at
and Brown Is the most promising.
Brown is easily among the strongest
in foot ball of the second-rate institu
tions, and if the Quakers win a vic
tory from them they
work for it. Princeton is expected to
find Washington and Jefferson an j
"easy mark," and Cornell should have !
no trouble in piling up a big score |
against Penn State. The Carlisle red

New Telegraph Instrument
Does the Work of Many Men ,
May Revolutionize Business
Daily News Special.
Atlanta, Ga., October 18.—A machine
that promises to revolutionize tele
graph, and which is to the telegraph
business what the linotype is to the
printing business, is now being used
by the Western Union Telegraph com
pany, and for every one used eight
telegraph operators are displaced.
For the past few weeks C. A. Whit
ney of New York, an electrical ex
pert has been in Atlanta installing
three of these machines in the main
office of the Western Union, and mes
sages from New York are being re
ceived over it daily.
The machine, known as the Barclay
printing telegraph, is the result of five
nting upon the part
of its inventor, .1. ('. Barclay, assistant
neer of the Western Union. After a
thorough test of tin < machines in the
New York and other big offices, the
company decided to buy all the patents
last November. A committee of promi
nent officials, one of whom was Sup
erintendent .1. Levin, of Atlanta, re
ported favorably on the machine, and
on this report the company bought the
patents and the exclusive rights to

The printing mechanism consists of

There Is an electrical contrivance at
tached to the punting machine capable
of making many combinations, and
when a certain letter is transmitted by
the perforated tape the magnet con

at the other end of the wire on the
printing machine and the letter is

with some improvements, and there

When the end of a line Is reached, the

girl who is perforating it on the tape,
strikes a character signifying that the
carriage of the typewriter is as far it

But the girl putting the paper in the

Of the smaller eastern colleges to
play tomorrow, Dartmouth will be at
Maine, Trinity at Amherst, Williams
at Syracuse, George Washington at
Swartlimore, Saverford at New York
university, Wesleyan at Tufts and
Johns Hopkins at Stevens.
The big game in the west will be
that between Chicago and Illinois. For
the first time since 1897 the Maroons
will play on Illinois field. Great in
terest attaches to the game, and if
the Illinois should again be defeated,
it is likely that the graduate coaching
system of that institution would be
abanoned. The overwhelming defeat
of the Illinois at the bands of the
Maroons last fall created great dissat
isfaction, and should the foot ball
history of the last two seasons repeat
itself there is small doubt that a radi
cal change in coaching will be made
at the Urbana institution.

j Iowa, Alumni at Indiana and Haskell
! Indians at Washburn,
| Important Southern games schedul
ed for tomorrow include Sewanee and

Another interesting contest in the
west will be the struggle of the Ne
braska Cornhuskers and the Minne
sota Gophers, to be played tomorrow
at Minneapolis. The Minnesota eleven
has suffered greatly from graduation
and is far from playing up to last

Superintendent Levin says he has
been trying to get some of these
chines in Atlanta since last November,
when the company bought the patents,
but only recently has he succeeded.
He says several of these machines
were installed in New York in addi
tion to those already there and points
out that the men displaced by them
were brought to Atlanta and other
cities after the strike.
At present the machines used in
Atlanta are working with N
and are kept busy all day long. Super
intendent Levin says he will later con
nect them with Birmingham and other
important points in the South. There
are now in the Atlanta office three
perforating devices and two printing
machines. For several days past girls
have been practicing on perforating
machines until now they are ready to

GREAT WRESTLING MATCH
HATTIESBURG, OCTOBER 26
Manager Bixler announces that the
Bonura-Hoyle wrestling match will be
held in the Auditotrium Theater, Sat
urday, October 26 at 9 p. m., and the
local sports will be given an oppor
tunity of witnessing a real champion
ship match, as the men will wrestle
for the middleweight championship of
Both athletes are men of wonder
ful strength and ability and possess
every qualification that goes towards
making a fearless and scientific wres
tler and as Bonura and Hoyle have
met before on the mat at the Green
wall Theater in New Orleans, the
match resulting in a draw, neither
man securing a fall, and both are
eager for the coming battle, each con
fident of proving the better man.
Bonura, better known as the Dago
Whirlwind, is a husky Italian from
New Orleans, and is a wonder at the
game, having met all the good men
of his weight, and each time giving a
good account of himself. It is re
ported that the Italian colony of Hat
tiesburg will be on hand at the station
with a brass band to welcome him on
his arrival in town next week. Bo
nura will enter the ring weighing fully
ten pounds more than his opponent
and on account of this handicap has
agreed to throw Hoyle twice
one hour or forfeit the match.
Young Hoyle, as his name im
plies is a youngster at the game, but
is fast following in the footsteps of
Gotch, the American champion, and
on account of his trim and well built
appearance his handsome face and
charming manners he has been
dubbed the Gentleman Wrestler.
Hoyle has everything in his favor,
youth, strength and science and can
be expected to give a splendid account
of himself in his coming battle with
Bonura and will have plenty of sports
ready to back him against the heavier
Both wrestlers will arrive in Hat
tiesburg the latter part of next week
and the sport-loving public will be
given a chance to look them over and
pick their choice for winner.
FIELD'S MINSTERLS TONIGHT.
To a standing-room-only-and-not-so
very-much-of-that audience, A1 G. Field
gave a demonstration at the Grand
Friday night of just how clean and
how new and enjoyable a minstrel
performance can be made.
Field has not exactly left entirely
the beaten paths of minstrelsy. He
travels about the same route, but he
has found several new kinds of ve
hicles that make the traveling easy,
and those that are not new are so
completely and artistically made ovei
that one hardly knows the difference.
There is nothing stupid and very lit
tle mediocre in the performance. All
the vulgarity and all the liear-inde
cency that formerly were deemed
eential to the welfare of any aspiring
minstrel performance have been elimi
nated. and so the attraction gives an
evening of pure and unalloyed enjoy
ment. The gallery god who formerly
furnished the wild hurrah or the sig
nificant snicker at the off-color joke,
thrills as well at the rapid scenic
transformations. The fellow with the
girl "down in the front" need not be
wiggling In his chair and looking the
other way while the performance
Field's first part Is a gorgeous affair.
as minstrel first parts usually are,
with plenty of jokes—only occasionally
one of the old friends bobbing up—
and several new songs, comic and
lyric. Billy Clark's "That's Music to
Me," was the distinctive hit of the
coon songs. Solon de Miller, an old
Atlanta boy, sang the popular song
of Sergeant Brazelton, of the Atlan
ta police department, "Down in Sunny
Grow," and the encore was the most
vociferous of the evening. John C.
Dickens has a powerful basso-pro
fundo, which he uses to advantage in
A1 Field starred in the first feature
of the olio, "Secretary Taft's Visit, to
the Philippines," and a funnier, more
laugh-provoking act could hardly be
conceived. The great banquet oration
and the succeeding bull fight by the
rotund minstrel man were full of
healthy, wholesome laughs.
"The Little Boy in Green" and "The
Night Before Christmas" and all the
other features were surprisingly de
lightfully fclever, and the great au
dience, front pit to peanut roost, left
with a sense of gratitude to the old
minstrel man, who has injected new'
life and better blood into an old, old
show and one whose kind seemed to
have been passing away.
Field will give a matinee Saturday
and will close the* engagement Satur
