PLEASURES OF THE

With Yale Freshmen.
VANQUISHED BY A SCORE OF M TO 4
Two Thousand Spectator Witness
the Contest Tho Tigers Have
Things About Their Own Wtiyl)c
tails of the liunieCloinc Contest
of the Season.
lrlneeton, N. J., Nov. 23. The foot
ball season closed here today by the
Princeton's freshmen defeating the
Yale freshmen by the score of H to
4. About 2,000 spectators turned out
tp see the contest but there were few
representatives from New Haven pres
ent. The young tigers had things
pretty much their own way during the
first half, but in the second the Yale
team showed the advantage they had
gained by steady practice for some
time past, while Princeton RtoO was to
a great extent a picked-up eleven and
had had little opportunity of learning
team idav. Princeton had better men
In everv position with the exception
of the center trio where Suthpin and
Marshall made things hot for their
opponents. The only thins that kept
Yale from scorinc once or twice was
their fumbling nt critical times. Their
best gains were made by muss plays
on the center und by using the quarter
buck trick around Ogelt'by's end.
Princeton made the most ground by
working Yale's ends which were quite
weak, and by gains on Wheeler's punts.
Wheeler punted well but both elevens
depended mainlv on line kicks.
Yale won the toss and chose to de.
fend the south goal. After the kick
off Princeton got the bull within 25
yards of Yale's goal and rushed it to
the line. Yale held for four downs,
and on attempting to punt lirlnley wus
tackled behind his line by Lathrop for
a safety nfter three minutes of play.
Score: Princeton, 2; Y'ale, 0.
About a minute later Held blocked a
punt and started for the goal with the
ball, hut wus tackled ten yards from
the line. A few rushes brought the
leather to the line and Palmer carried
It over. . Wheeler failed of goal, score.
Princeton. 6; Yale, 0.
Princeton got the ball ngain and took
It to Yale's 20-yard line. Retd then
carried It around right guard for n
touch-down. Wheeler again failed to
kick goal. Score: Princeton, In; Y'ale,
0. Yule worked the ball to Princeton's
:i0-yard line, but lost on a fumble. Time
for the first half was called with the
ball in Princeton's possession on Yale's
Second half: Hiblebrnnd caught the
ball on the kick olt and run 45 yards
in about two minutes. Wheeler crossed
the line with the ball for nnother touch
down, but he failed of goal. Score,
Princeton, 11; Y'ule, 0. A run of 35
yards by Corwin brought the bull to
within 15 yards of Princeton's goal,
and on a trick play he went around
Cadwallader for a ' touchdown, but
Scheweppe failed to kick eoul. Score:
Princeton, I t: Yale, 4. Yale again car
ried . the leather forty yards Into
Princeton's territory, but fumbled.
Month got the ball and Poe brought
It back 35 yards, Princeton lost the
ball for off side piny, but after plays
netting twenty yards It again became
Princeton's on downs. Time wns called
with the ball In Princeton's possession
on Yale's 45-yard line. The llnal score
was; Princeton, 14: Y'ale, 4.
Preparations for nn F.tcitiug Contest
Philadelphia, Nov. 25. The Inst foot
ball game of the season of lsnii between
the big eastern colleges will be played
tomorrow by Cornell and Pennsylva
nia on Franklin Held. The Cornell sub
stitutes, conches und rubbers, In all
about twenty-nine men, arrived here
this evening from Ithaca, and are
quartered at the Hotel Stentoti. That
Pennsylvania will win tomorrow is al
most a foregone conclusion, but Cor
nell always plays a hard und plucky
game: and, as the Ithncans are In much
better condition than when they met
Harvard nnd Princeton, and will als.j
have the full strength of their teun
out for nearly the llrst time this sea
Son, a good game is looked for. While
the Cornelllans do not expect to win,
they do expect to score. They are
counting on Pennsylvania's two fatal
faults of this season a fumble or a
blocked kick to aid them ucross the
goal line of the red and blue. Aside
from either one of these two causes it
Is improbable that Cornell will score,
as Pennsylvania's defense this yar has
been absolutely impregnable to every
team they have played, und the only
times they have been scored upon was
on a blocked kick nenr their goal line.
With the Cornell Foot Hull team to
day came the Ithacans Cross Count! '
team. Pennsylvania and Cornell to
morrow will have their nuniinl live
nil" cross country run and the finish
will he before the grand stand on
Franklin Held Just before the foot ball
game begins. Cornell won the race last
yei'.r ami Is confident of winning again
this year. The two foot ball teams will
line up as follows:

THE ILL-FATED TEXAS.
The Whole Bulkhead Syxtcin Found
to Be I'tterly Cseless.
Washington, Nov. 23. While the
findings of the naval court which in
vestigated the recent foundering of the
battleship Texas, have not yet reached
the department, it is learned that with
out extensive alterations, it Is very
doubtful whether the Texas can again
be ordered to sea.
The evidence wns adduced to show
that six of her compartments leaked
when her engine room w as Hooded, and
that a leak sprunir In unv one of them
at sea would have surely caused the
total loos of the ship. Not only were
nil the ulleged "water tisht" doors
found to be abortive, but In the opin
ion of at least one member of the
court "her whole bulkhead system is

Three of the ferocious Beasts Appear
in Tiogn County.
Wellsboro. Pa., Nov. 25. Andrew
Scully, of Troupsburg, was returning
from a party on horseback a night or
two ago, and when tiding through
dense hemlock woods found that his
horse was acting strangely. A mo
ment later there was an ear-spltttlng
shriek, almost human in tone, from the
bushes along the road, und in the light
of the moon he saw three ugly looking
panthers, one of them very large, leap
out into the road. Hy this time his
horse had become unmanageable and
started on a run. and neither man nor
horse was attacked.
A hunter In that neighborhood a day
or two afterwards came across the
tracks of the big "varmint" In the black
mud in a swamp. He says the tracks
were almost as large as those mad? by
a bear. The people in Troupsburg
neighborhood ore thoroughly alarmed.

San Francisco, Nov. 23. Private ad
vices from the American colony at Mat
latoyuca, state of Pueblo, Mexico, re
ceived In this cltv today, tell of four
atrocious murders by J 'eons, the vic
tims In each case being a member of
the colony. A colony was formed four
years ago and comprised 200 people,
most of them having formerly been
prosperous furmers In the United
Stales. A tract of lOO.OoO acres of land
was secured from the Mexican govern
ment ami a number of Peons have been
employed as laborers. Karly In the
present year a series of robberies took
place: but all efforts to capture the
robbers were unavailing. Then on
August 15, Thomus Oobez, while seated
on the veranda of his house was shot
and Instantly killed by one of a number
of Peons', who rode up to the house
nnd tired upon Gomez without warn
ing. The assassin was captured but
has not been pu.fa-ihed yet.
The second victim was a New York
er named Denny, 24 years old. He,
with a friend named Qelser, were rid
ing tuwards a villag when they were
tired upon by three Peons. Denny was
shot In the shoulder and fell from his
horse, Uelser being unarmed, wus
forced to lly and the Peons hacked
Denny to Pieces with machetes. The
murderers have not been captured.
Charles Pllesea was seated In his bam
boo hut Nov. 8 reading, when a rllle
was thrust through a crevice and a
bullet crashed through his head.
A posse started in pursuit of the
assassins and that night while In camp
were attacked by Peons armed with
machetes and Pancho Horis was so se
riously wounded that he soon died. The
Mexican government has ordered a
