NEW York, Dee. I. Then were 80,000
people en Manhattan ground to see the
great football game between the Yale and
Princeton tsaraa. Vale, funned with it
victory over Harvard, was of the opinion
that Princeton, notwithstanding the pet
names of ita team the Tigers," was "not
in it" with the brawn and vim of the
Yale men, but the result allowed that
there was a little miat,aomewbere.
The game was phenomenon la the intensi
ty and brilliance of the straggle and when
the score of 6 to 0 was announced Prince
ton' thousands of sympatizers in the
grounds split the heavens with there yells
of victory.
"Haltered" Little "Tmm Previous."
Tbe yelling up to the beginning of the
same had been done principally by tbe
Yale partisans, and the result showed the
wisdom of that homely adage "Don't
holler till you're out of tbe woods." The
day was an ideal one for football just
cold enough to make exercise invigorating
and a bright sun shining. Princeton won
the tow and took the ball, starting with
a flying wedge that carried the ball
through Yale's center for SO yards. Then
ensued a series of struggles and scrim
mages that showed Yale that the Prince
ton boys were out for victory or death.
-, and the first half ended in Princeton kick
ing a goal. Score, 6 to 0. ,
Second Halt Nets Xathing.
The Second half of tbe game was as hotly
contested as the first. Kepeatedly Yale
tried to break through Princeton's center.
but as often Princeton stood like a rock
and no great progress was made. At one
time King of Princeton got the ball and
and had made 5 yeards when Butter
worth tackled and downed him. A little
later Butterworth again distinguished
himself by punting tbe ball 40 yards, but
Princeton stopped it there and forced it
back IS yards. Three times during this
halt Princeton got the ball to Vale's
5-yard line, but when time was called tbe
ball was on Yale's 13-yard line and tbe half
counted nothing.

Yale has won eleven championship games.

growing more so. The score was a good
one for Harvard 26 to 4. Tbe hero of
the day was Charlie Brewer, tbe crimson
full back. Jlis playing was phenomenal
and ranks high with the few who bold
first place.
' The game wa niade up entirely of kicks
and good straight plays. Harvard only
tried once the faucy side wedge, which atae
sent bucking against lale so often.
Doctors were in frequent demand and
kept running up continually looking at
some injured man. r irst Lramons was
dazed and Charlie Brewer's brother
Arthur took bis place. Then Reese was
hurt. Wbartou was put in. Brewer him
self now lell out of tbe lists and Gray was
put in only to give way to uuntertnan.
.None of the men were hurt seriously, sim
ply too much knocked out to be relied on.
Incidents ot the tuic
Brewer scored the first touchdown and
later kicked a goal, giving Harvard a score
of 8 to u. Then Pennsylvania scored, and
her friends weut wild. But their yells
were changed to groaus when after some
sharp piling Harvard secured another
chance lor a uoal and Brewer ki'.-ked tbe
ball betweeu Pennsylvania's posts. First

Wammnctcw, Dec l The removal of
Civil Service Commissioijar Johaato was
made because be was not ia harsaoay
with his colleagues, and in fact Roosevelt
told tbe president that either ha ar Joha
stoa would have to go. Johnston, made a '
minority report oa the operations ot the
commiasioa which displeased the presi
dent. He declined to resign and was re
moved. John R. Proctor, of Ken tacky.
has been appointed ia his place. He is a
college professor.
When tbe president removed Johnston
it was surmised that Commissioner Lysaan
would also soon be superseded, bat there
is now an impression among those who
are ia a position to know that Lymaa will
not no disturbed; not at least for the pres
ent. From tbe same source it is learned
that the president tried very hard to avoid
the complications which arose over the
removal of Johnston, and would have
been glad to have had a change made and
Johnston selected as a consul to some
point agreeable to him. Efforts made in
this direction only resulted, it is amid, in
making Johnston more determined not to
surrender the principle which was in
volved, and be would not be tempted by
anything that might be offered.

Boston. Dee. 1. At a special meeting of
the board of overseers of Harvard college
ia this city, the following petition was
presented by Mr. George S. Crocker to the
board of overseers of Harvard university:
"The wide difference of opinion which ex
ists as to tbe merits and demerits of the
came of football as now devcloiied ami
played by collegians.leads the undersized
to request the board oi overseers to cause
'ill statistics to be gathered and compiled
and a thorough investigation conducted,
so that tbe appropriate attitude of the
government ot our university to tht game
may be wisely determined, so that if prac
ticable modifications of the game, calcu
lated to lessen its dangers, may be ang-
gested and so that parents and also their
sons in colleg3 or preparing for college

thorough and judicial inquiry by a com
petent committee." Tbe petition was re
ferred to the committee on physical train
ing and athletic sports.
sTharaee Against Frank La a lor.
Washington, Dec 1. The story comes
from the White House that President
Cleveland has decided, for good reason, as
he believes, not to appoint Frank Lawler
to any office that will require confirma
tion by the senate. It is stated that promi
nent Chicago Democrats have threatened
to make charges before a senate commit
tee that might prevent confirmation and
at any rate would create much talk.
Ssnator Palmer said tbey were untrue
and in language as emphatic as he could
command declared that if they were
brought before the senate there might be
trouble ahead for some of the other men
on the slate for the Chicago federal offices.

dent's action in eegard to the Chicago ap
pointments. "It was a great surprise to
me to bear that llesmg and Mize had been
appointed." said be. "It was only reason
able that I should be surprised, for I bad
no voice iu the matter. I aai at a loss to
account for the influences which brought
about the result, l intend, if possible, to
see the president before congress meets
and probably 1 Bball learu the reasons for
the appointment."
