THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER THURSDAY MORKTNG OCTOBER 10, 1895. - In the-Sporting World PENN SHOTS OCT THE CRESCENTS SCORING THIRTY-TWO POIXTS IX . TWO HALVES OF TWEXTV MINUTES EACH. SPLENDID WORK BY BROOKE His AU-Honnd Playing? Was the Feature -of 'the Game The Crescent 'Opened I"p Red and Bine's 'Line for Considerable Gains The -. Interference Below the Mark. From a Staff Correspondent. NEW YORK, Oct. 9. Eleven sturdy ' athletes wearing the red and blue of old Pennsylvania came over to Brooklyn this afternoon and had a little fun with the Crescents, a team composed In the main of players who were formerly shining lights on the college gridiron. The game was played cn ' the base ball grounds at Eastern Park. The sky was overcast and a chilling wind blew right across the field. It was good weather for sharp football, but not a day calculated to bring out a crowd, and less than 500 people witnessed the match. - - Although a number of ex-Princeton players belong to the Crescent Athletic Club, Burt, last year's substitute r .full-back, was the only one who lined up against the Quakers. Phil King, H with his "golden locks, was an ' intercepted spectator from the side lines. King appeared on the score card as quarter-back, but for ' reasons best known .to himself he declined to put r'jm football harness. Two twenty-minute halves wer played and in this, time Pennsylvania rolled up .'52 points, 16 being scored In -each half. The Quakers presented r the strongest team they have put on the field this year,, but they hardly .'played 'the game their admirers ex-,v .pected of them. ' Opening; l"p the Ilne. The Crescents . on several occasions opened up big gaps in the line, through ; which Smith," who did nearly all the ground' gaining for them, plunged for good runs. Three times he cleared ' the entire line, with none but Brooks ..- between him and the coveted goal, but on. each occasion the plucky full-back ' threw him in his tracks. Brooke played a splendid all-around game. He bucked the line in great shape and ( ; tackled .'like a fiend. His kicking also was a revelation to the Brooklynites, '"he several times punting the ball three-' fourths of the length of the field.. Gelbert played his first game of the year at- half-back. -His leg still appears to trouble him, for he did r-.ot show his old-time speed, although he made a number- of creditable runs. Williams was not up to his usual form at quarter. He fumbled badly and at times passed wildly, one of his passes ' .pretty nearly costing' a touchdown. He seemed a bit nervous ' and overanx- . -ious, but he tackled . hard and Interfered well for the backs. - Where the Gains Were Made. The Crescents made most of their gains between Stannard and Off, on .the right side of Pennsylvania's line. " They also came through Woodruff, at left guard. Penn's ends, Dickson and ' Boyle, did very clever work. They g-ot down the. field well. -on kicks and . frequently' threw the Crescent runner In his tracks. Both ran with the ball and Dickson several times skirted the ends for good gains. " The Interference was only fair. The men did not form It quickly and it was not compact enough. The game being played under last year's rules in a measure accounts for . this, although there is realfy'v not much difference between the rules of 94 and the Pennsylvania-Harvard-Cornell regulations. The Crescents at first insisted on playing under Yale-Princeton rules, but agreed on the compromise when Pennsylvania absolutely refused to meet them under those conditions. Although red and blue's goal -was never. In any great danger, there was one' play made which for a time badly scared the "rooters" from Philadelphia. It was In the middle of the second half. Boyle, who was running with' the ball, was. heavily thrown and somewhat stunned. Love, the Crescent centre, got the ball away from him and took it over the Quakers' goal line, but- it - did not count,' as Boyle Ifad yelled "down" and the referee declared it down where he was thrown. . ' The score of 32 to 0 shows Pennsylvania's playing in a better light than It really was, as three of the touchdowns were of a fluky nature, resulting from blocked kicks and fumbles on the part of the Crescents. Pratt, the Amherst man, played a very pretty game at quarter and Hughes find Ogelvie did good work In the line. The Crescents tried three men at full-back and none of them made much of a success in kicking. Brooke gaining from 2- to 30 yards on every exchange. ToBOhiloirn In Two Minute. Woodruff kicked off for Pennsylvania and then Burt and Brooke exchanged punts. , Boyle blocked the ball as it came from Burt's toe and Minds carried it over the line for a ouch-down in less than two minutes after the start of play. After Crescent had kicked off the Quakers rushed the bf 11 right up the field, Gelbert and Minds making most of the gains. The Crescents made a stand on their 20-yard line and got it on four downs. On the first lineup Dickson got through and gobbling the ball just as the quarter was passing it he eluded the other backs and took it over for a touchdown. This goal, as well as the first, was easy for Brooke. For a little while the Crescents held their own fairly well with the Quakers, but they, soon had to, give way to the fierce line plunges of Brooke and Minds, which, together with Gelbert's end runs, took the pigskin well into their territory. Gelbert made the third touchdown on a ten-yand run around right end. The goal was at a hirri angle and Brooke missed it. No further scoring was done in this half. During the remaining eight minutes of play the Crescent line held strongly and they got the ball on downs a number of times. Time was called with Cr scents having the ball on Pennsylvania's 4.1-yard line. The Second Half. ; The Crescents brought on a lumber of new men in the second half and they -played pretty sharp football. Haskell kicked to Brooke on Pennsylvania's 2"-yard line. Williams passed the ball wildly, but Brooke ran .back and saved It for the Quakers. Good runs of Minds, Gelbert and 'Brooke worked the ball down the field "and Dickson was' pushed over for a touchdown. " Brooke Just missed the goal, "the "ball striking the post and bounding back into the field. Shortly after the kick off Minds got the ball on -a dribble along the ground by Sheldon; and passing the. Crescent back ran fifty yards for a touchdown. The goal was easy for Brooke. Sheldon and Brooke exchanged punts and Bull downed. the former without his gaining an. inch. The ball was then given to .Smith, who dashed through Pennsyl-vania'n line for eight yards, Brooke bringing him to the earth. Smith grained five more yards through Woodruff and also skirted the left end for ten, taking It to Pennsylvania's 80-jrardMine. Here the Quaker line held strongly and they got the ball on four downs. Brooke kicked and Shel-r-don fumbled it. - Boyle was down the field like a shot and carried the ball over the line for another touchdown. Brooke sent the ball over the bar. Thc-re was no further scoring, and time was called shortly afterwards with the Crescents having the ball on their own 40-yard line. The teams lined up as follows: Pennsylvania. Positions.

Despite the bleak and threatening weather there was a large crowd at the field this afternoon to witness the Yale-Amherst game. Captain Thome's eleven well repaid their admirers by rolling up a score of thirty-eight points in the first half. In the second half every man on the Yale line, with the exception of Cross, was changed, and no scoring was. done by either side. -The game was not a verv good one from a football standpoint, though it afforded a great deal of amusement to the spectators, and was interesting as a ' comparison with' Harvard, who scored but twenty-four points in her game last Saturday. The Blue's play In the first half was characterized by dash and vim and the Amherst line went down like a reed before x Yale's - onslaught. Thorhe- himself played for only five minutes and nhen retired to watch the other men and to coach. - Walter Camp and ex-CaDtain Hinkey were together during the game and compared notes on the play., -The general work of Longacre, Chadwick, Bass and Rodgers was excellent, while-behind, the line DeWitt and -Jen-ems played In championship form. Longacre held his man well," made some good tackles and appeared just where he was wanted. , Chadwick broke through several times, tackling the runner at a distinct loss. Rodgers and Murphy invariable made their gains when sent with the ball. The Amherst line appeared exteremly weak during the first half and could do nothing with the blue. - Amherst's biggest gain being a run of ten yards round Bass' end. In the second, however,, they several times held Yale's substitutes to four downs. i - The tackling of Tyler and Fosdick's centre work were the bright spots in Amherst's play. Amherst opened the game with the ball and In less than two minutes Jerrems carried it over . the line for, a touchdown. In three minutes more De Witt circled Hall's end and . touched it down, Jerrems kicking the goal. Thorne made the next down after a run of forty yards behind the best interference shown during the game,. Jerrems, DeWitt and Murphy taking, part in the play. Johnston kicked off to Jerrems, who returned with a punt, and Yale then received the ball for off-side play. - Chadwick-- and Longacre opened immense holes in, Amherst's line and DeWitt, Rodgers and Murphy rushed through for good gains, Jerrems making the touchdown again and kicking the goal. DeWitt carried the ball over again within two minutes, but fumbled It and Pratt fell on it, giving- Yale a safety. " After- both Jerrems and' Mills had ' carried the pigskin over the line the referee announced forty seconds for play, and DeWitt skirted the whole Amherst team for a touchdown behind the goal posts. In the second half Yale weakened, the play of Murray, Sandford and Mills being a disappointment. Still Amherst did not once put the blue's goal in danger and time was called with the ball well in Amherst territory. The line-up follows: Yale. ' ' . Positions, s nr.

" CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 9. Harvard gave another distressing exhibition of football to-day and caused the coaches to wonder where they should look for good 'Varsity material. The play was slow and careless and lacked the snap which, should have been shown. Harvard's opponents were the crippled Phillips-Exeter eleven, and the Crimson won 42 to O. The score should have been much larger. Harvard- lost much ground for off-side play. Exeter was absolutely helpless and never gained the requisite five yards. -. Her line was easily brushed aside. Her backs were downed before they could start with the ball, and once, when Williams stepped back to punt, a Harvard guard downed him before he could swin? his leg. This shows how weak was Exeter's defense. Yet in spite of the fact that there was practically no obstruction, Harvard scored only 42 points, 6 points less than last year. Three or four times Harvard's men showed vim enough to get together with something that resembled team interference and then her backs easily made long runs. Twice Conterman covered fiO yards. As a rule, however, the Harvard players .obstructed the progress of their wn backs almost as much as did the Exeters. The line-up follows: Harvard. Position's. Exeter. Moulton, Cabot .....

' YIRGIN1ANEVER IN IT , The Tigers Play All Around the ic-: : V . Southerners. Special to The Inquirer. BALTIMORE, Oct. 9. The Tigers overwhelmed the sturdy sons of Virginia at Catonsville to-day by carrying the pigskin over the enemy's goal line six times in two twenty-minute halves The game was characterized by all that goes to make, up a typical college match, the stands being filled with bevies of the fair sex, vieing with one another in displaying their favorite colors, and the side Sines banked with strong-lunged "root-Grs." In view of the strong showing recently made by the University of Virginia, Captain Lea had selected the pick of his candidates and trained them especially for this game. This was scarcely neces-sarv, as the Virginia line at no time withstood the attacks of the Tigers, and the ball was kept continually in the former's territory. " This game is interesting. Inasmuch as It gives a line on the strength of this year's Princeton eleven as compared with that of last. ' It will be remembered that the Tigers succeeded in scoring but two touchdowns last , year in their annual game. The Princeton eleven worked together as a unit, the interference being an ever-present auxiliary to the backs.- The Virginia line withstood the onslaughts of the Princeton backs for the first few minutes and made a successful effort at aggressive play, but when the interference was brought to bear they - weakened and the Tigers rarely made gains of less than nve yards " In the second half - Princton worked the ball to the Southerners' ten-vard line four times, but managed to lose it, allowing Whaley to punt to the eentre of the field. Knight and Hearn, the new ends, played effectively, breaking up "'the interference and" tackling fiercely. ' ' " ' 1 . , Lea returned Virginia's kick-off to the middle of the field, and Rosengarten and Church advanced it to Virginia s ten-yard line. Church was sent through the centre for the 'first touchdown six minutes after . play. Gams by Armstrong, Rosengarten and Pope netted thirty yards, where the ball exchanged hands, finally being carried over the V lr-ginlans' ' goal, r line by ; Rosengarten. Princeton lost five yards on rough play-and Groner gained five more, but lost the ball on four downs. Rosengarten sprained his ankle and retired from the game., Baird taking his place at right half-back. Armstrong circled Jackson s end for a gain of fifteen yards and deposited the oval between the goal posts. Whaley and Pope exchanged kicks, the latter getting fifteen yards the better of if The-Princeton backs directed their or laughts upon the vulnerable point in Virginia's line at left tackle and guard and succeeded in working the ball to the University of Virginia's fifteen-yard mark, from where Armstrong was sen. around right and behind strong interference for the fourth touchdown. In the second half the Irginia backs were downed repeatedly behind their lines and resorted to a kicking game. Dudlev Riggs charged through the centre after twelve minutes - play for a touchdown, and Ayers later went around ritrht end for the last. "Biffy Lea caught Whaley's punt and succeeded in crossing twelve of the white lines before he was downed by Poindexter. Time was called with the ball on Virginia's ten-yard line.

Manager Andrns and Captain Lea, of the Princeton football team, were seen this evening in regard to the probability of a Harvard-Princeton football game. No official communication has been, received bv the management, and. therefore, nothing definite could be said. Manager Andrus said: "I don't think Princeton will agree to meet Harvard if the latter should make advances." "The sentiment among the undergrad-ates is against such a game. The Princeton management have tried for several years to bring Harvard into a struggle, and again this year pre-siinent alumni f Princeton conferred with the Harvard management and tried by every means to bring about a reconciliation between the two universities. Harvard refused to consider Princeton's proposition until Tale had thrown them over, and they now turn to rnnt-eiou aim aic icpui ii to be negotiating for a game." Captain possible to arrange for & game with Har- vara now mat tue buucuuic ii completed- Manager Ondrus said the same reasons hold good In refusing Harvard as did in refusing The Inquirer's offer of a. thousand dollar cup ftr a game with Pennsylvania. ,- ' "Personally." he said, "I would like to see a game, but unless some new methods be adooted to meet the exigencies of the case I don't see how the game can be arranged." - " . ' Nothing further has been done by the management in regard to The Inquirer s offer, although it is expected that the . . . . Pnmmitt will nrincr th matter up for consideration next Saturday.

At a meeting of the overseers of Harvard College to-day Dr. W. A. Brooks, the famous football coach, was chosen as one of the graduate members of the Athletic Board. This is looked upon by athletic men here as of great significance, in view of the fact that the present controversy be tween Vale and Harvard was precipitated by a criticism by Dr. Brooks the day following that now famous game at Springfield. Harvard men say that the action of the overseers cannot be considered in any other light than that of indorsement of Dr. Brooks' position.

Furniture Makers 1606 Chestnut Street FORMERLY 1209 Sporting Chat The news that Arthur Irwin will not manage the Phillies next season caused a ripple of excitement in base ball circles. It had been known that the officials of the club and their manager did not pull well together, but it was thought that all differences had been adjusted and that there would be no change. In case Mr. Irwin dtoes not secure the Toronto Eastern League franchise, he may consent to remain here, but there is no certainty about that. In the meantime there will be considerable interest as to who will succeed Irwin. Mr. Shettsllne, of course, being secretary tf the club, has the inside track, but his lack of practical experience is against him, and some one else may secure the plum. William Barnie, manager of the Scran-ton Club, was in town yesterday looking for President Reach, but failed to locate him. When spoken to on the subject he said: "No, I am not here looking after the management of the Phillies. I was not aware there was - tV be a change. But if there is. I would not object to handling such a. team, because I consider the Phillies the best players in the League, and they have a great chance for. the pennant next year if they are properly handled." The new third baseman signed by the Phillies is named Bob Berryhill. He comes from the Lynchburg Club, of the Virginia League. He was the best fielding and batting third baseman in that League, and one of the heaviest hitters. having 1M home runs, i tnree-Dasers and 40 two-basers to his credit. His fielding average is .050. Berryhill will be tried at second, third and short. The Phillies now have seven infielders on their pay roll, viz.: Boyle, Hallman, Cross, aulli-vaan, Reilly, Madison and Berryhill. A turf writer, commenting In the Melbourne Argus on the Cesarewitch and Cambridgeshire, says of the Australian horse, Paris III: "The former event is one of the few long-distance handicaps run in England, and It is just the sort of race ir which the dual Caulfield Cup winner may be expected to shine. If the little galloping machine takes kindly to the climate, and is well on the day. he will, with, say, about 9 stone on his back, lead them all a merry dance. He is, without doubt, the best horse Australia has sent to- England to race." The horse's weight Is 8 stone 11 pound. Melbourne, Australia, enters the ' list as the probable scene of the battle between Corbett and Fitzsimmons. . A cable from the Melbourne Evening News, received yesterday, says that reliable people there have formed a syndicate and are prepared to offer a purse of $20,000. allowing the contestants to rearrange a date that suits their convenience. Information to this effect was yesterday wired to Dan Stuart. W. A. Brady and Martin Julian, at Dallas, Tex. Lew Solomons, the score-card man, says he will announce the prize winners of the guess coupons at Philadelphia Ball Park in a few days. This information has been requested by a number of readers of The Inquirer. T6ung Griffo Is expected In town tomorrow. He is to appear at the South-wark Athletic Club on Saturday night In the wind-up with a good local man. The Griffo-Lavigne fight, which was prevented at Constable Hook, N. J., on Monday night, has been transferred to the Empire Athletic Club. Maspeth, Long Island, and is to take place within thirty days. If this contest is not prevented It would net be surprising to see the Corbett-Fltzsimmons fight brought oft on Long Island. H. H. D. THE RESERVE LIST.

HOLLY, N. J., Oct. 9. If the officials of the National Trotting Association do what they threaten to do to--morr0w, and if the referee of the bicycle races, A. G. Powell, does what he states he will, there Is every probability that the bicycle races scheduled to take place to-morrow at the fair now going on will not come oft. It was only through the coolheadednoss of A. G. Powell that a conflict oetween the league and the trotting association was averted to-day. Bicycle races were scheduled to take place at the fair grounds this afternoon and according: to program they Were to be run off after the trotting races. A change was made and they were sandwiched In between the horse races. When the first heat of the uovice race was called it was run off promptly and the men were Immediately lined up for the second heat, but Starting Judge Joseph A. Wenderoth would not have It this way and he ordered the referee to order his men off the. tracks Mr. Powell saw that there was a possible conflict between ihe -two associations and he at once yielded and gave way to the horsemen. This, however, did not appear to suit ihem and one of the judges announced that to-morrcw only officials of the trotting association would be allowed In th judges' stand. - It might be stated right here that the races at this place are held under the bp. notion of the L. A. W.. and one of the rules of the league is that only officials of the rs&es shall be allowed on the track during the races. This, of coursewill debar all the members of the trotting association, and the referee stated this evening he would ee to it to-morrow that this rule waa BE L & GO J THAT SHERRY WINE j ? l.Yi3 BOTTLE ? j HENRY VAN BEIL& CO j 1310 CHESTNUT V enforced if the trotting association made any effort to carry out their threat. The racing to-day was somewhat handicapped by the exceedingly cold weather, many of the men appeared on the track with their underclothing on under their racing Puits. "Teddy" Goodman, however, went the bunch one bettt-r and wore his golf stockings. He locked exceedingly comical in a yellow suit and dark brown stockings, but he evidently had the satisfaction of feeling warm, and that is . more than a majority of the riders .can boast of. There were quite a number of the New. York boys on hand and they captured a majority of the prizes. There was another dose Of poor handicapping exhibited to-day and the men were all complaining of the injustice which had been done them. An idea of how the men were treated can be gained from Willie Wenzel's handicap. While last year' he was riding remarkably well and won a larger number of prizes than any man in the city, yet early this season he fell and broke his leg and was not permitted to ride until a week ago, yet he was only allotted 1)0 yards on-such, men n Joe Harrison, "Teddy" Goodman, Charlie Etlz, Oscar Hedstrom an I George Bartram. Prizes were offered in all the heata and finals for the man who : would set the pace, but this did not make any better time in the events, but It was not on account of the men, for on the backstretch there was -almost a sale blowing dead ahead, against which the men had to battle.- However, the time made was good considering the disadvantages to which the men were subjected.. There was ho loafing in any of the events and the men all rode as welt as they could. W. M. Trott worked hard in the open events, but he was outclassed by the Riverside boys, from New York. In the handicap race he was -only another victim of the handicapper's bad work and on this account he failed to get a place. Ertz rode well, as did also Jefferson, but "Joe" Harrison outrode them. , The two-mile handicap was won by Clarence Bowers, a "dark horsf," from the lOO-yard mark. Joe Harrison, the Asbury Park flyer, won the .half-mile open and Oscar Hedstrom the mile open. Eddie Walters made his first appearance since his suspension was raised for competing for a diamond: at Norristown said to have been ever $50 in value. He,- too. rode well, but lack of training during his suspension kept him from winning anything. The SnmninrleK. First Heat. One-Mile Novice. Class A Won by F. Donovan; IT. R.
