New Haven, Nor 22. With equal confidence of victory in to-day's great football contest to decide the champion ship of the east, "the men of both the " Yaxe and , the Harvard teams arose early this morning to -await with eager . anticipation the hour of departure for . the field of battle. The bright sunlight of- a clear November day. somewhat warmer than coaches and trainers had hoped for but scarcely as depressing as previous days of the week, greeted the players Coid crisp weather, cal culated to put an extra touch of snap and animation into the gridiron war rws waa thft sort that Lad been wished for, and the thermometer read ing of 50 at 8 o'clock this morning was - viewed with some dissatisfaction by the coaches-. It was feared, that the - hard gruelling work of the afternoon would have a serious effect upon the ulavers of both teams. A light soutn . west wind prevailed, at an early hour, but the local weather bureau officials predicted, that it would veer to the southeast later and. that the afternoon sky would be overcast with clouds. The Harvard men at the Pequot club house hail perhaps the advantage ag far as morning : weather - conditions were concerned, for a cool breeze from the Sound blew around" their "Morris Cove quarters. Their morning prac tice was limited to light signal work on the lawn in front of the club house, after which they strolled about the shore and remained at ease until they were called together ; "' for a light lunch previous to donning their foot ball togs for .the game.

It was estimated that at least 28.000 people would see the game, and the late rush for seats indi cated that many more wouTS irpply for admission and be disappointed in their hope of securing places. No such de mand for seats was ever before known at a game In this city. Speculators who had managed to secure a few tickets in spite of the stringent pre cautions taken by the football associ ation management, did a rushing busi ness, the ruling quotation for the best seats being $10 this morning. . v Nearly all the visitors displayed the colors of the rival universities In the form of flags or ribbons, while the streets most frequented by the morning promenaders were also decorated lib erally with tire blue and crimson, the former color predominating in stream el's, banners, bunting and flags. It was announced that the following would serve as officials of the game: Umpire, Paul A. Dashiell of Annap olis: referee, Matthew A. McCluhg of Lehigh; timekeeper. J. C.

As he slowed down two masked men sprang on the footboard of the engine and covered the men in the cab. Mean time" others of the gang menaced the crew and passengers in the coaches. One of the bandits quickly uncoupled tfca express ; and baggage cars h from the train. The engineer was ordered to pull out. Two miles west of Rock ingham there lis a stretch of heavily timbered country. Here the engineer was .ordered to stop. The bandits im mediately attacked the through safe with dynamite, uslng an extremely heavy charge. The noise of the ex plosion was heard in Da stupor t. Hav ing completed their work and stowed away the booty, the robbers again mounted the engine and rode on to Buffalo, a small station, where they dismounted and vanished in the dark ness.; . '... A flagman came back' from the train to the yards to notify the officials. ; Posses were at once organized for the chase.. : . The train : was the fast west-bound express, which left Chicago at 6:03 last nicht, and "which runs through to Fort Worth, Texas, via St Joseph and Kansas City." ill HI DIAMOND 15 Arrested While She Was Nego tiating a Loan, She Claimed to Have Found, it in a Box at Madison, Square Garden Needing Food for Her Children and Not Knowing the Owner She De cided to Pawn it ...

He, Claims Boston's Clique Is as Bad as the St Louis Ring He Says One of the Important Positions in the Hub Affairs is a Place on the Com mittee on Finance. ' . Boston, Nov 22. In an address be fore the 20th Century . club here to day, Alderman George H. Tinkham, who represents the. sixth, or wealthy Back Bay district, and who, on sev eral occasions,' has attracted attention by his independent action In connec tion with financial matters before the city government, declared ; that "be tween New York with Tammany in control, St Louis with Its 'ring,' and Boston -with its claque, there is no dif ference in principle and little differ ence in fact except in organization." The speaker, wtio is a Harvard grad uate and a man of wealth, described in detail the method of nnhlio husi- ness as carried on by the, city govern- xueut auu urea instances to substan tiate his claim with reference to cor ruption.1 After reviewing the plan of organization of the city government and - the means of raising money, Mr Tinkham said: "A place on the committed on fi nance, a joint committee of both branches empowered to make up the annual loan bill, is considered by the politicians ' the most desirable because of its opportunities. It is appointed by . the presiding ' officers of each branch, and the desire is always to ob tain men in harmony with any scheme which may be undertaken by the clique which is in control of the polit ical machinery and which usually is manipulated by the chairman of the board of aldermen and president of the common council. "The finance . committee can ; only consider loans which have been intro duced in either branch' of the city gov ernment or by the mayor. 'Tt Is necessary to adopt some of the recommendations of the mayor in or der to placate him and give some ap pearance to the bill that it is reason able. There isdded to the- bill all the political and corrupt items. "The political items are adopted on the principle of . 'if you will help me, I will help you.' The corrupt items are proposed and adopted by understand ing of the members of the clique. Such a bill is sure of passage, because the clique has the votes." Mr "Tinkham related th fiirwi. incidents: . "A bridge was to be reconstructed; both because of its condition and the narrow.ness of its draw. A loan for the purpose was before the finance committee. Beyond this bridge was an establishmeili which would save thousands of dollars per annum on lighterage by the change. It was in timated in plain: terms to this estab lishment that if monev w.i flrlfntiWi to those in control of the clique, the bridge would be reconstructed; other wise not "The president of a Boston corpora tion told me that when legislation of value to his company was pending be fore the board of aldermen, certain al dermen approached him and one alder man m particular told him that his company was to receive somethins nf value and should be willing to giye a partial return; that in Nmv York he would have to contribute to Tammany, in St Louis to the organization electing the aldermen, but that in Boston It was each man's fight; that he was not in politics for his health and that a price must be paid or the . legislation would not be granted. The president upon being requested to go before the district attorney said he would rather pay the price than be connected with such a scandal." As a step towards reform the speak er offered this suggestion: "What has been done in Chicago by theleglslatlve voters' , league, which defeated a cor rupt city council in 1897 and maintain ed a decent city council ever since, can be done in Boston."
