The \\ arren Football team, through its
manager, A. W. helak, lias been trying
for a number of years to get a game with
the strong West Chester team. TJu*
manager of the West Chester team wrote
Mr. Selak that they would play the first
game with the Warren at West ( hester
if they would pay their own expenses
and receive none ot the gate receipts, and
they would come down here on the same
terms. This looked like a flim-flam, awl
the Wairen management wanted each
team to post a forfeit with some response
hie person. The West Chester team
agreed to a 825 forfeit, but that is an
other foxy move of'the West Chesters'
manager, for if the Warren goes to West i
Chester they do not get a cent, and the
other team gets it all, and they can easily
afford to lose the forfeit by not coming |
here to play tlie return game. If the
manager of the West Chester team means
business let him post a forfeit of 8200 in j
responsible bands, anil the Warren will j
do the same. Then the people of W il- j
nnngton and West Chester will see a ,
gamethat they have always wanted to!

Some queer things happen in the
West Yard sometimes and railroad men
are used to them, andean usually guess
pretty close as to the cause. Last night
however, produced a mystery. About
half past 10 o'clock a man was noticed
staggering about the yard, and as Be
seemed in a fair way to be injured by
Some of the trains that dodge incessantly
up and down the many tracks, the men
investigated. They found him bleeding
from numerous cuts and stabs[and other
wise cruelty mangled, lie was in a piti
able condition, but refused to give his
name or any information regarding him
self, and accounted for his injuries by
saying that he had fallen off a train. He
did lint want to be helped, but seeing his
conditioiijitjwus.thought best Jto bring
him to tiny city, and hciwas*accord inglv
put aboard a shifter and.brouglit to the
P., W. &jB. depot. Tlie officers of the
patrol were notified and took him to tlie
Delawnre^II ospital.
According to the story lie told the offi
cers his name was James Devine, of 28
South street* Brooklyn. He came in on
a south-bound freight about 8 o'clock, in
company with five other men. He
claims that he does not know them, and
says that, finding that he had some
money in his possession, they tried to
force him to give it up. He resisted, and
in tlie melee he was cut several times.
He was finally worsted and robbed of $2-4
which lie claims to have had, and
pitched out of tlie car in the West Yard.
His story may or may not be true.
The general impression among the rail
road men seems to be that lie did not
tell the truth.
It is certain that his injuries could
never have resulted from falling ofi
train, unless he fell on the points of two
