Chiorn, one of the riders mixed up in the Chinese Pete scandal at San Fran ! cisco two years ago, turned up at Sin ; gerly yesterday and sought permission to ride. The officials declined to give the desired permission, but their ruling looks a little inconsistent, as Chevalier and Hinrichs, who were in the same affair, have been riding for some time on the outlaw circuit. Betonica, a three-vear-old pacer, went a mile against time, unpaced, in 2.(Si?, yesterday at Santa Ana, Cal., beating the record made by Searchlight last week, of 2.07. Betonica went to the half in 1.05. The last half was made in the remarkable time of 1.01}.

Flipper,of Old Virginia, could be heard many miles away when Advance took the lead, but as the horse dropped back, the expression on Flip's face was pitiful to behold.

Uffenheimer is, however, still loyal to the Red and Blue, ''"'l cheered Pennsylvania against Ln layette at last Saturday's game. ware College football team held the Ursinue team of that place down 0 to 0. Baldwin, Constable and Pierce played At Collegeville, Pa., yesterday, Dela well for Delaware, The Hill School football team defeated the Mercersburg Academy team by the score of 24 to 5. The practice on Franklin Field termin ated yesterday afternoon in a sudden and abrupt manner. DeHilver, who had been playing right tackle in (Jutland's place and putting up a fine game, got the ball for a run around left end. By good in terference he eluded all the scrub players except Hnover, who brought him down with great force by a sharp tackle. In some manner De Silver's ankle received so serious an injury that he was unable to rise. The afternoon's work ended and lie was carried to the training house under the scrub stand, where Dr. J. Wil liam White made a careful examination of the injured member. At first it was feared that his ankle had been broken, but a more careful inspection disclosed no fracture of the bones, but that his ankle had been dislocated. The injury is almost as severe as a sprain, and will keep Do Silver out of the game for prob ably two weeks, and possibly he may be unable to play at all again this season. This fall, as last fall, there can bo very little question but that Pennsylvania and Princeton out-class both Yale and Har vard in foot ball. Wharton, Hefflefinger and Uppen heimer are three of the players the Orange A. C. football team expect to play against the Elizabeth A. C. at the Orange oval next Tuesday. Coach Woodruff, of Pennsylvania, has invented a pair of pneumatic foot ball trousers. Princeton defeated the Elizabeth Ath letic Club foot ball team yesterday by a score of 12 to 0. The Princetonians ex pected a hard struggle, but no one thought that the Tigers' stone wall would be shattered, the backs downed behind their interference, and the ends circled with such ease. The Harvard eleven gave a miserable exhibition of foot ball yesterday against the Newtown Athletic Club, scoring only 22 ]K)ints, when, considering the weak ness of the opponents, the crimson should have scored twice that number. A story is going the rounds of foot ball men as to the methods of a certain West ern athletic club in securing talent. As it was a difficult matter to secure big men for the centre positions, the captain of the team looked the police force over and finally picked out a strapping Irish man. The latter was induced to put on a football suit, and after receiving a few instructions, lie was placed at centre ! rush, "There's one thing, Mike," said the captain, before the play began, "and that is, don't slug! Just play the game!" "All right, begob!" was the reply, and : the game began. There was no trouble for at least ten minutes. Then the op posing centre rush hauled off and landed heavily on the copper's neck. In the twinkling of an eye, the big Irish maiilet ! out a war whoop anil smashed his op ponent in the mouth. Other players separated the combatants and they struck no more blows during the half. When time was up the policeman rushed up to ! his antagonist and, sticking out bis cbm, be shouted defiantly. "Bcgorra, audit's yc>r turn now to : P u,K ' h ' b,,t ,,,a - v , the H, ™" >' L ' r when } another crack at yer spal Pcenfacc. But the other fellow | wouldn't fight, whereupon the Irishman ' >r |" ! nnl ' "What tickles me is tne wav 111 fool .. ul , tl . ' . , me wife. She says ter mo this nionun', « av « she* 'Mike ver'll be kilt intirelv \ , ' J ! , , , . and come home a cripple/ And here I alri) go j n ' home as fine as silk, widout a ^crutch." The cop is still playing centre. This is the time of year when "news" is sent out from the various big colleges that the star players are all crippled and that the 'varsity elevens are so weak that j a a cinch, This 'threadbare scheme to threw opponents off the scent has been worked so much that whenever the graduates of these different uni versities read these inevitable reports they merely laugh. It is therefore safe to say that the terrible things that are said to have happened to various star players at Princeton, Yale, Harvard, and other, universities will not result in the permanent retirement of the players in question. 1 Not long ago the report was sent out ,■ .... . from New Haven that when the "Giant ,, „ ,, , Heffelfinger put Ins loot ball togs on be . , tossed tale s new guard, (adwahuler, , . „ , r , • , about like a rubber ball.

' The football game yesterday afternoon at Riverview, between the Ariels and the Killinninick, the German team, was certainly for bloodj The crowd was for the Ariels, and consisted of about fifty ladies, all with red and black ribbons, the Ariels colors. The German team also bad a few rooters, but were bard ot hear when the Ariel's followers got to gether. The Germans were beaten by tin 1 score of 14 to 0. But the 14 points were hard to get, and there were many bloody noses, bruised shins and black eyes to show that they had been in a game. For the Germans the best work was done by Dr. H. Buckmaster, W. Reed, F'rank j | | •at vas all out of con Buckmaster and* Barner. The stain of the Ariel's were Jones, F. White, L. White and W. Henry. In the first half F. White made a run of about eighty-five yards and a touch down. Following is the line up: ARIEL. F. White C. Sharp Jones J. McGbniga) center G. McGonigal right guard W. Brown right tackle F. Buclmlew right end F. Clement quarter back C. White left half back Faucette W. Henry right halfback F. Buckmaster L. White full back Barnes Referee, Rev. F. B. Short; umpire, W. Foster; linesmen, Meechem and McDan Tonchdowns, F. White, 1; C. White, 1; Henry, 1. Goals, L. White, 1. Time, two two-minute halves. The High School foot ball team will play the strong Tome Institute eleven, of Port Deposit, Md., on next Saturday, at Union street grounds. The game will be called at 3.30 p. m., and the admission will be 15 cents. The Wilmington boys will wear their new sweaters, which came yesterday, for the first time. Come out, boys, and help the team along, as it costs money to bring a team here, and the athletic department funds are running short. The team this year is one of the strongest elevens that the school had, and the people of this city might to attend the games more than they do. The Rev. F. B. Short makes a good referee. Their names were White, but they all had red hair. "They were hot. stuff." Jones, of the Ariels, is a hard player to stop. Barnes played half the game for the Germans, His tackles were fine. A few Warren rooters composed of F. Boyle, E. C. Goodley, B. Grier and P. Hanley may go to Chester on Saturday, to see the game. Don't forget that Saturday is the day. All foot ball enthusiasts caught, in Wil mington that day will be shot, and to avoid being hurt, go to Chester with the Warren. The Wilmington A. A. foot ball eleven will go to Philadelphia on Saturday to play the strong Kenilworth Wheelmen. The Wilmington team has adopted the by-laws of the Chicago A. A. For the first time since the Indian game Yale had all her regular backs in the practice yesterday afternoon. Kiefer, Benjamin, DeSaulles and McBride, all took part in the play. Cutten was at centre and in good ffghting trim. Brown was on one side and Marshall on the other. Big Cadwallader, in citizens' clothes, and with his left, arm in a sling, walked up and down the gridiron and looked wistfully at the fray. He kicked a few goals from place kicks, but did not at tempt to do anything more. The phy sicians think his shoulder may be in condition so that be can play in the Princeton game, but offer little or no hope for his recovery in time for the Harvard game. The coachers will first try Marshall for Cadwallader's place in the line, and if he fails may put Chadwick back at guard. The little army of coaches was increased this afternoon by the arrival of Dr. "Josh" Hartwell and Howard Knapp. "Kid" Wallack, "Brink" Thorn, Ray Tompkins, Louis Hinkey, Heffelfinger and Muphy were also on the field, the last two taking part in the practice. Foot ball circles are being agitated over the policy of abolishing the two points which are being awarded for the success ful goal kick after a touchdown has been scored, and the various members of the Rules Committee have expressed their opinions. Paul Dashiel is the only one who is in favor of awarding the two points. KILLIN.MMINU. left end left tackle W. Way Stefenberg left guard B. Stefenberg H. Feasting J. Feasting ( J. Bice l H.
