A BUSY TIME l OR HOWLERS, ATH LETES A y I) RIFLEMEiï. Many Match Garnet* Flayed—Results of Association and League Bowling Con tests, Cross-country Kilns arid Foot ball Kicking—Sporting Notes. The bowlers of the Jersey City Athletic Club enjoyed their Thanksgiving Day feast. The Palma's bowlers were not so happy. The latter with their shouters and cal liopian band journeyed to Bergen on Wednesday night. Tneir shouters and calliopes gave thanks yesterday, Their lungs and throats were not lacerated and sore. They wére sad, luimble spectators, and had little provocation to show their skill in making a noise. It was a cold night and the rain came down in torrents. The storm did not de ter the enthusiasts and the space reserved for spectators was crowded. It was Palma's night from the very start. Of course they were at home and as eVcry alley has mote or less wrinkles they can not be made absolutely true, the home club had a slight advantage. It was to the ignorance of the condition of the 1 alleys that the Palmas attribute their defeat. It is certain that they did not out up the gome they have been rolling this season and they fell nearly Ave points below the average. Hathaway and Car ter were the only men on the team who appeared to be able to get at the pins. The two 209 men just touched the edge of the average line, two of the team finished in the twenty block, two in thirty block and three in the forty section. The Jersey Cltys' veterans got thar •with both feet, only one of the quartette of new men were near the average at the close. ICurrah, who journeyed all the way from Buffalo to take part in the contest, was happy. His club Won and he con tributed 175 to their score. The Jersey Citys went to the fore at the outset. They eecured the lead at the close of the tiret frame by 37 pins. They kept on adding to their lead, aBd Klein, Cur f ran, Davis, Olmsted and Schultz were cruel at the flnish by making a succession of strikes and spares to widen the gap. Schultz wound up with three strikes. ι ne score loiiows:— JERSEY CITY Ai C\ | PALM A. S· 8t B. Ç» | S» β. Β. S· Curran 3 δ 2 175 I Gallagbei .....(> *5 5 130 Klein 5 8 2 198 !

They vanquished the Lafayettes on the letter's alley on Wednesday night, and have an unbroken record ot victories. The Lafayettes were not in their best form. Du Is had to retire to attend the lire at Cables, Adolph Seilheimer wits de tained at his place of business, and his brother John was ill, but rolled at the solicitation of Captain Joues. Eveil with the weak team the Lafayettes hoped to •win and they made the visitors bustle and then they only had a margin of six teen at tlie end.

The Volunteers took a large and lively delegation to the Central Club's alleys on Central avenue last tiight. Thfey had oc casion to be happy. The Centrals were caught napping. They had not recovered from the effects of their late turkey dinners and could not beud low enough to get the bulls down the centre line of the alleys. It was amusing to see them slowlv straighten alter stooping, and the weil fed Centrals laughed as the bàll slid ο ft into the gutters. The Volunteers had been cautious and indulged in an earlv dinner and they werfe Γη tine fettle. They put up the best game of the League series. E. Cirabo was in great form. He piled up trie best score that has been made, 210. Lusch, Bitch tenkirk, Captain Fulton and Humphrey, too, were in condition and made good lig ures. Only two of the Central boys contrived to exceed t#ie average. The fortunates yreie Oberbock and Heuter, who were just seven each over the line.

About Ave hundred spectators sat and shivered on the grand etand at the Cricket Grounds in Hoboken yesterday morning and watched the Dartmouth College team beat the Stevens Institute boys. In the first half of tbe game, which occupied forty minutes, the Dart mouth boys had It all their own way. The ball was always hear Stevens' goal. The Stevens boys seemed to place too much reliance on little Dehart. This ! clever little player made some very nice runs but was always coliard before he could get very far. The tackling of An derson, of the Dartmouth team, was very : fine and was an important factor in win ning tlie game At the close of the firet half the Dartmouth teum had made 18 points und the Stevens had not scored.

A jury trial was held in the First Dis trict Court yesterday afternoon In the case of John Wilson, a carpenter, who pawned a chest of tools to Simon Mayer, who keeps a pawn shop on Warren street. The chest was pawned for Î3.50. There seemed to be some misunder standing as to the date upon which the loan expired. The chest was loaned last November a year ago. In August last Wilson wanted +o redeem the chest, which Mayer had sold to a Mr. Martini on Grand street. Mayer procured the chest and delivered it to Wilson. The tools had depreciated in value twenty-live per cent., and some of them were missing. A clerk In Law son's hardware store testified that the tools when new cost more than 140. The jury, of which Clothier E. S. Norris was foreman, brought· in a verdict giving Wilsou judgment for Î38.50, for the miss ing tools, and *5 for damages to the chest and return the chest. Judge Douglass said no such verdict could be received. The jury retired and brought in a ver dict ot damages to the extent of 159. An Old Lady's Narrow Kainpe. An old lady attempted to cross the Pennsylvania tracks at the Newark ave nue crossing last night when the gate tenders let both gates down and penned her in. Realizing the danger, one of the gate men raised the gate under whicn she had just passed, but the old lady was so frightened that she did not have presence of mind enough to retrace her steps. A brave youuir fellow among the crowd of halted pedestrians rushed to her res cue and snatched her from the track just in the ffck of time to escape the on-rush ing train. The old laciy s bonnet fell from her head and was caught by the en·* gine and swept to eternal smash. It was a very close call. At the Purk Reformed.
