DEFEATS THE IUVY
Cadets Swamp the Annapolis
Team in Slow and Tire
PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Nov. 28.—1n
one of the most tiresome and uninter
esting football games ever witnessed
on Franklin field, the West Point eleven
defeated the Annapolis team by the
score of 40 to 5. Two miserable fum
bles in succession gave the Navy their
As a football game it was a dismal
failure, but as a society function it was
a success. Seated in boxes around the
field were Secretary Root, Secretary
Moody, Lieut. Gen. S. M. B. Young,
Maj. Gen. and Mrs. Chaffee, Assistant
Secretary of the Navy Darling, Ad
miral Taylor, of the bureau of naviga
tion; Col. Mills, superintendent of West
Point; Supti Brownson, of the Annap
olis naval academy; Maj. Gen. Brooke,
Gen. Mile?, Maj. Gen. Henry C. Corbin
and Mrs. Oorbin ajid many other per
sons prominent in army and navy cir
It grew so dark before the close of
the game that it was almost impossible,
to distinguish the two teams, and no
effort was made to name the player
carrying the ball.
The Navy won the toss and chose the
west goal, with a slight wind at their
backs. In less than ten minutes play
they had scored their only points.
Graves kicked to the Navy's 15-yard
line and Howard returned the punt. A
fumble gave the Navy the ball on the
army's 45-yard line. «
After two attempts to gain through
the W«st Point line, Howard kicked to
the army's 15-yard line. On the first
play there was another fumble in the
army line and Strassburger fell on the
ball. Chambers was then called upon
to try for a goal from placement for
It was a very difficult angle, but the
ball sailed straight between the posts,
and the cheering section of the Navy
Etand simply went wild. Caps, canes,
megaphones and almost everything
movable within reach was thrown in
the air, while on the opposite side of
the field the army boys were very
I Quiet. Their gloom was soon dispelled,
; however, for within a few minutes the
: army had crossed the Navy's goal.
Then West Point Scored.
On an exchange of kicks West Point
secured the ball on the Navy's 30-yard
line on a fumble. A heavy West Point
er tore big holes in Navy's line and
soon pushed Hill over for a touchdown.
Graves kicked goal.
Three minutes later West Point
again got the ball on the Navy's 8-yard
line on a fumble by Strassburger. Davis
was shoved over for the second touch
down and Thompson kicked goal.
After an exchange of kicks West
Point secured the ball on Navy's 50
--yard mark. On the next play Prince
broke through the Annapolis team and
by beautiful dodging scored a third
touchdown. Doe kicked the goal and the
half ended a moment later.
It was evident that barring a fluke
the Navy could not hope to score a
touchdown on their opponents.
During the first half they made only
three first downs and one of these was
the result of a fumble.
In the second half West Point went
through the lighter line of the Navy
almost at will. On every scrimmage
there was some Annapolis man laid out
and Capt. Soule and Left Guard Cham

The latter part of the contest re

FOUL STRIKE RULE
Star Batters of Former Seasons
Are the Men Registering
President Harry Pulliam has issued
a call for the annual winter meeting of
the National league, which will be held
in New York the first week In Decem
ber. It is probable that the foul strike
rule will be discussed at this meeting.
The rule was fathered by Edward Han
lon, and has been in vogue in the Na
tional and Eastern leagues for three
seasons, and last summer was adopted
by the American league.
When the rule was first put in force
there were many objections to it, espe
cially by players who invariably hit
toward left field. The rule is for the
purpose of preventing players like Wil
liam Keeler, Jesse Burkett and Roy
Thomas, the three most expert bats
men in baseball, from deliberately
fouling a ball so as to wear out and
worry a pitcher and at the same time
delay the game. As the season wore
on batsmen who were not adept at
purposely fouling accidentally fouled
balls, and thus had their chances of
making a fair hit spoiled, and they
joined in the cry against the rule.
Hanlon successfully fought In favor
of the rule at the two regular National
league ' meetings which followed, but
now after one year's trial in the Amer
ican league, the players who had
jumped from the National to that
league and had failed to live up to
their batting standard raised the cry
against the rule, and the magnates of
that organization are inclined to listen
to their appeals for a return to the old
Keeler, who in the National league,
even under the foul strike rule, batted
around .345, wants the rule changed, as
his average was only .326. He was sup
posed to be the highest paid player in
the American league last season, and
he fell far below his average. Larry
Lajoie is another player who objects
to the new rule. In 1902, under the old
rule, he batted with a percentage of
.369, and his percentage this year under
the new rule was .344. This makes a
difference of 25 points, but Lajoie was
ill at the beginning of the'season, and
did not bat up to his standard. Hans
Wagner, of the Pittsburgs, says he
has no objection to the foul rule. "Put
'em anywhere near the plate and I'll
find it and keep it in fair ground," says
Hans. Jesse Burkett, who led the Na
tional league several years ago, with a
batting average close to .350, had a
percentage of only .303 this year. This
may be accounted for by the fact that
Burkett quite frequently tries to bunt,
and many of his efforts are fouls. In
nearly every instance where a player
in the American league played under
the old rule in 1902, and in the same
league this year under the new rule,
his batting has fallen off, especially
among the .300 batters, from 30 to 18
It is natural for a player who is a
star batsman, and whose batting av
erage has been cut by a rule not to his
liking, to raise an objection, but
among the majority of players, espe
cially among the pitchers and catchers,
it is the opinion that the new rule has
worked satisfactorily to all. Hanlon
declares that the rule favors no indi
vidual player, with possibly the ex
ception of the pitcher, and as much of
the success of a team depends on this
individual's work, he is in favor of
giving him the benefit of sharing the
most of the glory. Hanlon says the
rule is here to stay, and though a few
disgruntled ones who have failed to
make good with the stick are crying
against it, they will eventually become
reconciled to the fact that there is luck
In baseball, and next season these
players who are the biggest kickers
may bat far above their mark.

National Commission Turns Down Player

CINCINNATI, Ohio, Nov. 28.—Two im

the national baseball commission, of
which August Hermann is chairman. The
most important i s that of "William Phyle.
manager of a Southern league team who
was indefinitely suspended by the Na
tional Association of Minor Leagues for
failing to prove his claim that certain
games which had much to do with the
championship of the Southern league had

national commission has nothing to do
with the case, and it is. referred back to
the National Association of Minor
The other decision was that of Second
Baseman Doolin, who played last year
with Jersey City, and is claimed by
Brooklyn. His name is ordered stricken
from the list of players purchased by
Brooklyn. The future of Doolin, however,
will be definitely settled when Messrs.
Hermann, Pulliam and Johnson, all the
members of the national commission,
have their next meeting.

The team will be selected later, but from

BLACK CROW WINS A
GAME FOR A GOLFER
Prize Golf Story of the Year Comes From
the Links of Cairo.
It is a gorgeous story that comes from
the golf links of Cairo, and every good
golfer will hereafter carry a gun in his
bag of clubs if he wishes to overlook no
fine points. After a splendid drive, a
Cairo player watched the ball roll over
the distant turf, when to his horrified
amazement, a crow swooped down and
carried it aloft. The golf and the caddie
put off in chase, the caddie cursing in
fluid Arabic. Then, to the delight of the
golfer, the crow dropped the ball on the
green, and he holed out in two strokes,
which put Col. Bogey out of commission.
The opponent was threatened with apop
lexy. As in the case of the Indian foot
ball trick of sticking the ball under his
jersey, there was every kind of a rule in
the book, except one to cover the unex
pected, and the golfer's record, ably as
sisted by his crowship, had to stand.
Many years ago in England, before a
rule was made to fit a similar emergency
In cricket, it is related that a batsman
knocked a ball into a tall tree, where it
lodged in the crotch of a limb. There
was no climbing the tree, and the nearest
ax was a half mile away. Before it could
be obtained, and the tree chopped down,
the man with the bat made more than
700 runs, hurtling between the wickets
like a human shuttlecock. H© dropped
scoring runs then, only because he ran
himself out of strength and breath and
fell on the turf, still feebly trying to pile
up another run, with one weary eye
cocked on the tree and all the opposing
side frantically trying to chop at once.—

One Hundred and Twenty-four
Have Died of Prize Ring
Since the death of Tom Falkner in
England in 1758, a total of 124 men

juries received in the prize ring at va
rious times, both under the old London
prize ring rules and under the more
modern regulations governing boxing

A compilation of such statistics on
the points as are available indicate that
the much-dreaded hook blow is the
most dangerous. It was with this that
Bob Fitzsimmons killed Con Riordan
in Syracuse, N. V., several years ago.
In fact, Fitzsimmons' tremendous
striking ability made him the most
dangerous man in the ring, more hav
ing suffered severely from his blows
than from those of even Jeffries. Fitz
is said to have invented the hook punch
in his fight with Jim Hall, and a suc
cessful demonstration of it put Hall
out for half an hour. At Carson City
Fitzsimmons nearly killed Corbett with
his solar plexus shift.
Among the little men fighting today
Oscar Gardner has been the most dan
gerous puncher. Kid Lavigne killed
Andy Bowen with an uppercut, though

unconscious from the ring and never
recovered. He died four months later.
JONES AND WHITE MAY
JUMP CHICAGO TEAM
Actions of Star Fielder and Pitcher Worry
CHICAGO. Nov. 28.—Charlie Comiskey
was somewhat rattled yesterday when it
was announced from the Pacific coast that
the stories recently afloat about Fielder
Jones having dickered with the Pacific
league for a jump from the White Sox
had a strong foundation of truth. It was
reported some weeks ago that Jones de
termined not to stay with the White Sox,
and, despairing of getting a chance to
play with either of the New York teams,
had tried to get a job on the coast, but
Commy asserted that the story must be
exaggerated—that everything would be ar
ranged to the mutual satisfaction of Jones
and the club, and that the dove of peace
would coo on Jones' shoulders every night
for six months to come.
And now comes a straight story from
the coast to the effect that Jones not only
wanted to jump, but that G. Harris
White, the star left-handed slabman.
wanted to do a saltatory act as well, and
had been negotiating for a lightning
change act to be accomplished at the same
time as Jones.
Jones offered to go to the coast for $4,
--000 a year and a two years' contract. Dr.
White was wining to jump for $3,500 a
year, and a two-season document. The
Coast league, however, turned down the
offer, as the Pacific magnates could not
see just where the extra $7,500 would be
turned back to them through any added
Commy didn't say anything yesterday,
but it is even betting that his next letters
to Messrs. Jones and White will not be
exactly overflowing with tenderness and
It now looks to be a certainty that
Tom Loftus will leave the Washington
club next season and attend to some im
portant business interests in Dubuque.

going to be the head of a syndicate of
rich Detfoiters who will finance the Mich

Collins will see Farrell, who was knock
ed out last season, and try to make terms
with him for next season. "I think we
have the finest string of pitchers In the
business," said Collins. "With our old
men we will have Joslyn. a clever young
pitcher from New Bedford, as well as
Walker, of the Louisville club. Winters,
Gibson and Hughes should be stronger
than ever next season.
"While Collins was talkilng about his
string of pitchers Hughes joined the
party, much to the surprise of Collins.
"Well, Tom. how is the bank roll?"
queried Collins. "Quite strong," waa
Hughes' answer, and matters are fixed
up for next season.
Collins said the team would go to Ma
con in the spring and-4ater to New Or
leans for three or four games, and might
play a game or two down there with the
Chicago Americans. Asked what he
thought about the foul strike. Collins said:
"I do not think they should change the
rule now that we have grown used to it."

BERLIN, Nov. 23.—Emperor William
has withdrawn his offer of a cup for a
trans-Atlantic yacht race in 1904 on ac
count of his health and has substituted
for it the offer of a cup to be raced for
The emperor, through his representa
tive, cabled his decision to the American
yachtsmen today with his reasons for the
postponement. These are that the pro
longed period of the emperor's recovery
and the consequent accumulation of all
business has prevented him from receiv
ing his yachting advisors to arrange the
details for a trans-Atlantic race until it
was too late for the designers and build
ers to have new yachts ready for a con
test in the spring of 1904.
The emperor greatly regrets that a de
lay of several weeks has been caused by
his indisposition and resulting inability to
discuss the particulars of the race. The em
peror hopes this suspension of his offer will
have the approval of the Ai:antic Yacht
club and the New York Yacht club. He
was not unwilling that this information
should be made public. His advisors es
pecially desire that it be clearly under
stood that the emperor's illness and con
sequent restraints imposed by his
phyicians alone occasioned the postpone

LONDON, Nov. 28.—Sir Thomas Lipton
today received a telegram from Lord
Lonsdale notifying him that as illness
had prevented Emperor William from
meeting yachting representatives It would
now be too late to build boats in Europe
and make the suggested 1904 race a suc
cess, so the emperor decided to postpone
offering his cup for a trans-Atlantic race
until 1905. Lord Lonsdale added that the
emperor, therefore, would not take ad
vantage of Sir Thomas Llpton's with
drawal. Sir Thomas replied, agreeing
with Lord Lonsdale, that it was now too
late to make the proposed race a success,
and pointing out that, therefore, it was
quite useless for him to renew his offer,

ROUTE FOR AUTOMOBILE
RACE IS ARRANGED
Germans Make Elaborate Arrangements
to Protect Public.
BERLIN, Nov. , v .—The German Auto
mobile club this evening decided unani
mously to hold the race for the James
Gordon Bennett cup next year over a
course from Saalburg to Limburg,
thence to Ober, Urzel and to Saalburg.
This action was taken after a commis
sion appointed for that purpose had
thoroughly examined the course, in con
nection with prominent foreign automo
bilists, including Fournier, who won the
race from Paris to Berlin in 1901. These
experts are of the opinion that the course
selected for next year's race is far su
perior to the Irish course over which the
race was run this year. Fournier thinks
the course highly suitable, the roadway
being firm and well ballasted. The route
of the race leads through a highly pic
turesque region with wooded hills. There
are many quite steep grades which will
require the machines to have the best of
brakes and mechanism for quick changes
The race will be contested in June or
July. Elaborate arrangements for the
safety of the public and the protection
of the racers will be made. The club
counts with certainty upon obtaining per
mission of the authorities to use the
course selected by the experts. There
will be many foreign competitors, ac
ceptances being already in hand from
France, Italy, England. Holla rid, Belgium
and Germany. The club expects Ameri
can automobilists to take part in the
race, though none has a3 yet accepted
Cats Fond of Olives.
"I have often wondered if all cats like
olvies," remarked a Germantown wom
an who is very fond of the feline tribe.
"All mine do, and I have six. Olives
are usually an acquired taste with the
human race, but cats seem to take to
them naturally—at least mine do. An
olive will set any one of them into
paroxysms of joy. They will leave
milk or fish or any other article of food
for it, purring and rolling over it much
as though it might have the intoxicat
ing effect of catnip, before they finally
eat it. I have often tried olives on
other cats in the houses of friends and
have found them equally appreciative,
only they prefer their olives cut up
into pieces."—Philadelphia Record.

Of the most likely candidates for po
sitions In the line are big Smith and

up especially well this year, and Oech and

end, Marshall ia pretty sure to make
good, while Tuck and Luce will fight it
out for the other, with possibly a few

or he may go in at half. For Irsfleld'a

year's first subs. Nuessle and Oleason,
the best punter on the squad, will light

There will be need of a great deal of
deliberation over the choice uf a captain,
for with so much raw material a man
who has the confidence of everybody is an
absolute necessity. Of the four veterans
Current has hardly had enough 'varsity
experience, so there are really only threa
men to choose from. At present Strath

to be close between them.
In regard to the schedule, Minnesota
is likely to have as good a one as usual.
Dr. Williams has been in Chicago mak

this morning. Minnesota is under con

Manager Deering conferred with th«
baseball managers of the big nine while
in Chicago Friday, and bus received
assurances which make it probable that
Minnesota will be represented by a base
