The News of the Sport World,
Against Faculty. "
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 9.—The
announcement made yesterday that the
Harvard faculty had determined to
drop the Harvard-Yale football game
and sever all football relations has
raised an awful rumpus among the
undergraduates. • ._..-'
The dictum is laughed at generally
by the graduates, as they do not be
lieve it possible to cancel the big foot
ball game for good. But among the
undergraduates the sentiment is to
openly^ rebel —to have a new athletic i
committee, secure a new head to gov
ern its affairs, and, in fact, it looks
as though a fight will be made to take
control of athletics from the graduates'
The truth is just beginning to dawn
upon the undergraduates that their
athletics are being controlled by a
committee which, to say the least, has
scarcely any interest in them. This
committee is composed of men who
have figured in active athletics little,
who know scarcely anything about
athletic life, and who are particularly
anxious to make Harvard's sports as
truly Puritanical as possible.
In the old days, when the undergrad
uates had charge of athletics, the col
leges prospered, eligibility rules were •
unheard of, the four-year rule was
never thought of, and the rivalry was
great, yet good natured. Now, how
ever, since the graduates and non-ath
letic undergraduates have had charge
of die different branches, Harvard has
been In hoi water on more than one oc
A fight will undoubtedly be made
against the faculty, as the average
Harvard man would rather see the
A. B. and A. M. and other degrees
in Jericho rather than give up the big
football game. Such an awful calam
ity has scarcely been thought of, and
now that the voice of the faculty has
been heard, talk of rebellion is rife.-
The leading men in athletics have
been interviewed, and all are of the
opinion that the abolition of the Yale
game would take the life out of Har
vard's football and weaken all interest
in the other branches of athletics. The
general Impression in Cambridge is
that the athletic committee is making
a strenuous endeavor to make Harvard
as "slow" as the English universities,
and that such a move is a mistake.
CORNELL WILL NOT
PLAY WITH HARVARD
Crimson Team Refuses to Arrange
Game With Ithacans.
ITHACA. N. V., March 9.—Cornell
will not play Harvard in football next
year and Cornell will not play Prince
ton at Princeton. This announcement
was made tonight by the president of
the athletic council.
Cornell's schedule is complete with
the exception of one date, which has
been held open for Harvard. Manager
Brady is scouring the country for a
team to fill the date.
With Princeton a two-year .agree
ment has been made whereby Cornell
will go to Princeton this year and the
Tigers will play a return game in this
city in 1904. Inasmuch as the contest
was held at Princeton last fall is was
really Ithaca's turn this year. Cornell
was willing to make the concession,
however, in order to relieve Princeton
from two home games with Cornell and
Yale during the same season.
The Princeton management pointed
out that last year's experience showed
that the interest taken by the Orange
and Black in the contest was consid
erably reduced by the proximity of the
Yale game, which occurred two weeks
By alternating these two contests,
Princeton can assure a large crowd at
each. Although the agreement covers
two years only it is expected to be
renewed at the end of that time.
WITH THE BLUES
Gear Captures the Speedy Catcher Re
leased by Cincinnati.
KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 9.—
There will be joy in fandom when the
announcement is read that Dale Gear

As soon as Cincinnati released the

PRIZE FIGHT PERMIT
HAS STRING ATTACHED
Johnstown Burgess Insists That Battle
Must Be Real.
JOHNSTOWN, Pa., March 9.—Dan
M Harper,--the new burgess, of Patton,
his signalized his advent in office by
issuing a permit for a prize fight with
a string to it.
Jack O'Brien, of Morrlstown, and
James McAvoy, of Patton, have signed
an agreement for a fifteen-round bat
tle at Patton Saturday night for a
purse of $200 and the gate receipts.
Before Burgess Harper would, give
his consent to the contest the managers
were obliged to allow the birfjgess to
appoint three reputable citizens to se*
tickets and hold the cash until the
fight is over. At the first sign .or inti
mation that the scrap is a fake the
spectators will receive their money
back. The burgess states that the li
cense was given for a fight and not
for a game of ping-pong.
OFFICIAL SCORE SHEETS

points in 1,800.

The girls, basketball j championship of

The rivalry between' the two teams has

very close and exciting.
Both of the teams have an unbroken

An additional interest Is added to the
game by the fact that both teams havo
been coached by members of the "U"

TO THE CABLE
Signals by Alarm Boxes
Three Blocks Apart on
"When a North side cable car gets in
trouble the gTipman of a train has
only to jump off the car, run an ave
rage of 200- feet forward or back of
the train, lift an oval iron trap from
the center of an iron manhole cover,
take a small key from his vest pocket,
insert it in a little iron-bound box in
one side of the cable conduit, and
make one turn of the key. Within fif
teen seconds the cable is still. So also
is every car on the lood's circuit, and
so also is every piece of machinery in
the nearest power plant of the Union
Traction company, says the Chicago
The gripman has done it with his lit
tle key. .
Under the paving between the dou
ble tracks of the cable lines are strings
of gas pipe housing the wires of the
cable alarm system. In the center of
each track, north or south, there is a
big manhole cover placed just over the
cable pulleys which operate to hold up
the cable at each stretch of thirty-one
feet, and in the north track, at every
third street crossing, is one of these
manholes, numbered, with a small oval
trap which may be lifted with ease for
the insertion of a cable alarm key.
These numbered manholes mark the
alarm stations connected by electric
wires with the power house of the
company at Division street.
On the north side of the river these
stations average about three blocks
apart, while in the downtown district
there is one at each block. As near as
is possible they are placed at street
crossings. The one box in the whole
system that Is above ground is at the
south end of the L# Salle street tun

The action of a key in one 'of these
alarm boxes is directly upon a gong

ticular cable is .connected. The gong
is close to the engineer of the plant,
and as the gong strikes the number of

side. One full turn of the key in a
box is an arbitrary notification to the
engineer to stop the cable in a mo*,

I "The one most serious condition
which may arise in the operation of
the cable, and calling for instant stop

of a cable and the train becomes a

a case as this the one turn of the key

unquestioned call to the engineer of the

minor trouble, when one-third speed is
necessary in a moment, two turns of
the key accomplishes it. As to the
three turns of the key for the emer
gency wagon, this means a telephone
call must follow, but there is no such
haste in this, and even there the num
ber of the box is shown on the board,
so that the telephone operator in a
moment can teli the wagon crew where
Alarms Cost $100 a Day.
As to the necessities for using the
alarm system of the North side cable
lines, it has been figured that two
thirds of the culls are made because
of impediments to traffic put in the
way by the outside public. And yet
the system means the expenditure of
$100 a day on the North side and West
side cable and troiley lines belonging
to the company. Ten of these emerg
ency stations are maintained by the
system, each averaging six men and
four horses in two shifts, each wagon
having fifty miles of track subject to
all the ills that street railway steel is
Two styles of wagon are necessary,
one a low truck designed for the re
moval of obstructions from the tracks
and the other a tower wagon with its
crew for the splicing of a broken trol
ley wire. In each of the ten barns,
virtually day and night, the horses are
in the harness and hitched to the wag
ons ready for a run. The truck for
the removal of obstructions to traffic
is easily recognized by its fifty wheel,
which is carried ready for adjustment
to any vehicle which stands upon a
track immovable because one of its
own wheels has been crushed down.
This fifth wheel of the emergency
wagon, however, is without sentiment.
There is no charity in it. When it has
been put in place of the wheel that
has broken down and the team attach
ed to the wagon has pulled the wagon
off the track of the company the wheel
is removed and loaded into the truck,
which makes another run to its sta
tion, leaving the driver of the coal
wagon with all the worries of the sit
uation as they existed before the com
pany truck came.
Most Calls in Winter.
But often before the truck gang has
made the home run another call is
awaiting, for the season of emergency
calls is in the winter, when the sharp
finger of the frost is laid upon every
thing; when steel, above all other met
als, is subjected to the testing of its
weakest point, and when nearly every
other material in the construction of
vehicles is rendered brittle by the cold.
Ordinarily an emergency wagon makes
its run to a breakdown in seven to
eight minutes. The time necessary 4o
the clearing of the tracks depends
upon the nature of the obstruction.
The last key signal of the alarm
system is given on the North side
about 1:30 o'clock in the morning. This
is the four-turn signal, which stops
the cable after the last car has gone
into the-barns and when some partic
ularly suspicious portion of the cable
has come into the view of the repair
gang. This is the "good night" call
to the engineer of the power house.
Thereafter till 5:15 o'clock the owl car
has sway of the tracks, and the gen
eral public, which is not particularly
sober in the main, may hang to its
particular style of lamp post and wait.
In the key code for emergency sig
nals a repetition of the number of
turns of the key in the box counter
acts the first signal. For instance,
the one turn of a key stops the machin
ery, and when it has come to a stop
another signal turn will start it; two
turns will cause the machinery to slow
up and another two turns will notify
the engineer to turn on full speed
