By His Clever Fighting Against Kid
Wilson, the Wilmington Lad
Proves Himself a Comer.
The following is what the Washington

night.
Jack Farrell, the Wilmington, Del.
feather-weight, won on a foul from Kid
Wilson in the fourth round at Stuben
ers'-road-house, on the Bladensburg road,
last night. A sporty crush bordered the
ringside, and the betting favored Wilson
before the men entered the ring, and the
odds were two to one in his favor yester
day.

Wilson is a muscular youth with a
tendency to "plugging his own game."
He made an assertion a few moments
before the contest last night that he
would brush up the ring with the re
mains of Farrell, and the betting ele
ment immediately took his word for it.
His bluff last night was a delusion and
The Wilson bettors were in the
majority at the ringside, and that was
the reason why they failed to agree on
the decisions of Referee O'Connor, who
carried out his instructions, to the effect

CHESTER ELEVEN VICTORIOUS
Defeat the Wilmington Team by the
Score of 17 to O—Game Hard
Fought.

The Wilmington High ^hool fo tba 1

theirgood team work and the locals'
wea k line, enabled them to win easily.
Before the game had progressed many
minutes it was readily seen that if the
locals wanted to keep the score down
they had to play a kicking game. In
stead of doing this they repeatedly
bucked the line without effect and the
ball would go to the other side on downs,
By bucking the line and making short
run s around the ends it wasn't long be
fore Whorrilow, their clever full back,
had scored a touchdown,
All through the first half the visitors
used the same tactics and before time
was called the^had Bcord eleven points
to the locals' none.
In the second half the Wilmington
boys braced up and by kicking the ball
frequently they held the visitors down to
one touchdown. ... .
That ihe score would have been much
bigger if it hadn t been for the fine work
of Groyes, Simpson and Whitsel there is
little doubt. The work of Groves was
p or the Chester eleven the best work
done by Longhbotham, Whorrilow

But not disgraced.
The Chester lads were beefy.
Pretty girls were very conspicuous.
Groves played quarter-back. Yes, he
did more than that, he played the game

side in particular.

lo.
Captain Kyle should cut the above out
and put it in hiB hat.
Macklem didn't help Simpson a little
bit in breaking up the interference.
The reason the visitors found the line
so easy was that the line men, when be
ing attacked, did not play low, but rose
up.
Whitsel will make a good full back
when he learns to kick.
Whorrilow went through the line like
water through a sieve.
Longhbotham is a fine ground gainer,
as he runs hard and low.
If anybody wants to Hobsonize any
of the locals, they should begin on
Groves.
Simpson follows the ball well. He
blocked Whorrilow's kick very nicely.
Haney proved himself to be an all
right centre. He opened up well for the
runner.
It was very pleasing to the manage
ment to see such a large crowd.
The game was a very pretty one to
W atch from the side lines.
When the locals get to know what
team work is tliev will be able to hold
their own against all comers.
The visitors' team work was very fine,
and to get it shows that they have prac
ticed very hard.
Well, the first game is a thing of the
past, and the rooters will be content to
wait for the next, when a victory is
looked for.
