WIN BY SCORE OF 26 TO 0 Dodsre, Sherlock And McCrow Make Longr Runs Stonecipher Off At Goal Kicking The first game of the Maryland Athletic Club's football team was played yesterday at the Oral with the Columbia (Fa.) Young Men's Christian Association eleven. The Maryland Athletic Club won easily by 26 to 0. The Baltimore boys showed excellent form and made a fine impression. Dodge, McCrow and Stonecipher, back of the line, were a combination hard to beat. They played well and each seemed to fit Into his position as If he had always played there. Stonecipher was decidedly ofT at kicking-He had four tries for goals, but only succeeded In sending the ball over the bar nee, and that was on his first try, a few seconds after the game started. - Wallace and Brice are good tackles and Sherlock and Clrlffin can do a lot of damage to an opposing team when they try. The risitors hardly had a chance to win. however, for the home team was heavier, but they put up a plucky fight and played a good, hard game. It was Interesting, in spite of its one-sidedness. Columbia kicked off at the start to McCrow, who advanced the ball about 10 yards. On the next play Sherlock took it find ran around left end for 55 yards, for the first touchdown. Stonecipher kicked a pretty goal. The points were made In about a minute and a half after the game began. Sherlock made another pretty run for 20 yards and McCrow advanced the ball about 10 yards more by a good hurdle. Dodge got the ball next and went around right end for the second touchdown. Stoae-cipher failed at goal. , McCrow caught Columbia's kick and ran 25 yards before being downed. Dodge, after advancing 20 yards more, dropped the ball, but Rossruan fell on it. Then Stonecipher scored, but failed at goal. The rest of the first half was characterized by a number of good plunges and end runs, but the clubmen fuiybled twice and lost two chances to score. Stonecipher kicked off well in the sec ond half. A few minutes later lie got the ball and ran across the line, dragging two of the opposing players with him. Wallace tried to kick the goal this time, but he failed. McCrow fumbled the ball on the next play, after M. A. C.'s line had proved Invincible, and the visitors got it. The Y. M. C. A.s then braced up and gained about 50 yards by hard playing and fumbles by M. A. C. Then M. A. C. held the visitors on downs. Brice made the last touchdown, but Stonecipher was again unable to Lick goal. Nearly all the M. A. C. squad were given a chance to play. One of the Maryland Country Club's prominent members said after the game that never before did the M. A. C. begin a football season with such a promising, well-conditioned and enthusiastic eleven.

At the Mount Washington Club yesterday afternoon the eleven of the new club played its first game of the season, defeating the Indian football team by 41 to 0. Much interest M as centered in this game on account of the showing that the Indians made with the Maryland Athletic Club on last Saturday. The Indians played a good game, but were outweighed. Patterson, fullback of the Mount Washing-tons, was easily the star man. He succeeded in scoring two of the touchdowns find kicked six goals. The work of Marye and Rider was very good. Burns and Wee-ins. of the Indians, played well, but owing to the weight of their team they were unable to score against Mount Washington. Line-up: Mt. ir. Position. Indian.

The playing of Markoy and Stoll were the features of the game. Pattersons, 24; Barclays, 0. The Patterson Athletic Club defeated the Barclay Athletic Club yesterday at Patterson Park in a clean game by 24 to 6. The .game during the first half was one-sided, owing to the superior weight of the Pattersons, but during the second half the Barclay line braced up and held the Pattersons to short gains. Brilliant work was done by Bartlett, an cid City College player, at left lialf. The Pattersons made three touchdowns during the first half, Bartlett scoring two of them and kicking all three goal Near the close of the first half Roberts, of the Pattersons, scored the third touchdown by a brilliant 60-yard run.

The Marine Officers eleven played a creditable game here this morning against the Army and Xavy Preparatory School, of Washington, defeating them by 10 to 0. The game took place on the new grounds near the marine barracks and the players suffered severely from the heat and lack of training, there being many substitutions. Good work for the officers was done by Cole, Small and Larned, while Thompson put up a star game at right end for the visitors. "West Point, 18; Dickinson, O. West Point, X. Y., Oct. 8.

II., 0 Exciting Finish Wins Hard Contest For Maryland Tenni, Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. Washington. Oct. 8. In a very hard fought battle the Western Maryland foot, bnll eleven defeated the George Washington University on University campus this afternoon by a score of 0 to 0. Western Maryland possessed the advantage of weight', and her fullback, Roberts, who covered himself with glory and won the game in the last nick of time, weighed over 200 pounds. Although laboring under this handicap, the George Washington players fought with determination and rushed the Mary landers so vigorously that the latter had a hard up-hill fight all the way. The game was won in the last five minutes of the second half, when the score stood 0 to 0, with the ball In the possession of the Mary-landers, who were within four yards of a touchdown. George Washington held the visitors and obtained the ball, but the touchdown for Western Maryland was inevitable with the fine work of Roberts. Two halves were played, one of 20 minutes and the other of 15. In the first George Washington rushed down the field by gradually overcoming the weight of Western Maryland until held by the latter nt the 25-yard line. Roberts, of Western Maryland, punted the ball back until George Washington held the visitors at the 20-yard line. When Western Maryland again got the ball it was returned the srfme distance by another series of punts by Roberts. Here Right Half Stephenson, who carried off all of the personal honors of the home team, made a great 30-yard run around the ends, which set the Washington rooters almost frantic. George Washington continued to make small gains until it lost the ball, and after a series of line bucks and right-hand punches for small gains the first half ended with the ball on the 25-yard line in George Washington territory. POLYS HOLD DOWN TOME Local Hoys Take Measnre Of Port Deposit Team In Game There. Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. l'ort Deposit, Md., Oct. 8. The Baltimore Polytechnic came very near taking Tome's measure yesterday, although in the early part of the game it looked as if the latter would have a walkover, its touchdown being made Inside of three minutes. But Polvtechnic braced up thereafter, and although the ball was in their territory most of the time, no more scoring was done. The second half was bitterly contested, both teams being forced to kick frequently. Tome's kicks were poor efforts, two of them being straight up in the air and resulting In losses. The Poly's most effective play was a mass formation on tackle, and with it they carried the ball about 30 yards six succes'sive times. Tome seldom failed to gain in bucking the line, aud would have done better by rushing the ball instead of punting. The teams were evenly matched as to weight. Tome had in Caldwell and Baker substitute guards. Smith and Grant, the regulars, being temporarily out of the game. Brumbaugh, captain, was the star for Polytechnic, playing a great game and keeping his team up to its best all the tim. Tome's offensive play was very crude, Duval being the only back who hit the line with any force. The feature of the game was Gambles' 50-yard run for a touchdown behind perfect interference. HARVARD, 23; MAINE, 0 The Crimson Eleven Shows 3Inch i Improvement in r iirm. Cambridge. Mass., Oct. 8. In today's game, in which Harvard defeated the Uni-versitv of Maine by the score of 23 to 0, the Crimson players showed much improvement over last week's form in the game with Williams. The Harvard men were slow in getting into action after the first kick-off and again on the kick-off after the first goal, Maine breaking through her line for considerable gains. When the Harvard men settled down, however, they held Maine, and after plunges netting good ground Harvard scored. In the first hnlf Mills made the first touchdown after a run of 30 yards, aided by splendid blocking. In the second half Harvard continued line bucking. Mills, Nichols and Reynolds, who hud replaced Wendell, making notable gains. The game was witnessed by about S.01X) spectators, the largest crowd of the season. The line-up: Harvard. Postitlons.

Yale defeated the Pennsylvania State College football team today by the score of 24 to 0, and the Yale coaches are greatly pleased over the result of the game, as it was the hardest and most scientific that Yale has had at the corresponding week of the schedule for several years. The defensive play by the visitors was excellent. The Yale forwards had their hands full throughout the game, and in the center it was generally a standoff. Shevlin made a hair-raising run of 60 yards in the second half. The line-up: Yale. Positions. Penna. State. Gates. Stevens L. E .'.Barr r.'.oomer L. T Moscrit, Wray Kinney, Hockenberger.L.

The University of Pennsylvania football team today defeated the Lehigh eleven by 21 to 0. Pennsylvania scored two touchdowns in each half. The game was little more than a practice contest for Pennsylvania and the score could probably have been doubled had the local eleven so desired. Lehigh was weak in both offensive and defensive play. Cornell, 34; Hamilton, O. Ithaca, X. Y., Oct. 8. Cornell put up her best game of the season this afternoon and defeated Hamilton 34 to 0.

In the beginning of the second half the visitors tore up Cornell's defense and five times gained first down by steady line bucking. Gibson, Cornell's freshman halfback, made a phenomenal run of 05 yards for a touchdown, distancing all pursuers. Colnmhla, 11; Williams, O. Xew York, Oct. 8.

Ostrich, paying 3 to 1 for the place, was second, and Outcome third. Seven good horses paraded for the Municipal Handicap,, with The Southerner favorite, at 3 to 1. Shorthose was next in demand, at 7 to 2. The start was prompt and Ostrich went to the front, leading by two lengths passing the stand the first time. Outcome was second and The Southetner third, with the others well up. In the run down the back-stretch Ostrich "increased his lead to three lengths, the other positions remaining the same.

Pasadena, a 12-to-l shot, won the Nursery Handicap over the Eclipse course by a head from the favorite, Glorifier. Von Tromp was third.

Chicago, Oct. 8. The Liberty handicap, the feature of the day at the Worth track today, was won by Mies Crawford, Fossil being second and Brancas third. The start for the race was wretched, being one of the worst seen on any of the local tracks this year. Reservation was headed in the wrong direction when Starter Murray sent off the field, and Port Royal was so tangled up with other horses that he was unable to get off, and both horses, each carrying a lot of money, were left at the post.

' MIDDIES, 12; V. M. I., 0 Xavy Plays Rough In Their Opening Contest Have A "Find." Special Dispatch to the Baltimore 'Sun.l Annapolis, Md.. Oct. 8. The football season in Annapolis opened today tinder the most auspicious circumstances. The Xaval Academy midshipmen in their opening game defeated the eleven of the Virginia Military Institute by 12 to 0. Besides this victory two other local teams carried off the honors from their opponents. On St. John's field in the morning the Collegians won from the team of Franklin and Marshall College by the score of 11 to 0, and on the field at the Xaval Academy Marine Barracks the team of the young marine officers attached to the School of Application defeated the Army and Navy Preparatory School of Washington by the score of 16 to 0. The middles made both of their scores in the second half of the game. In the first half both teams fumbled several times. The locals had the better of the visitors in leading a stronger attack. In the second half the middies got together and before the close of the 15 minutes of play had forced the pigskin over their opponents goal for two touchdowns. One of these was made by Douglass, the fourth classmau, who is regarded as the find of the year for the Navy team. The second was made by Decker on a plunge for five yards through left tackle. The Virginia Military Institute boys played a most creditable game against the locals under the circumstances, as the Naval Academy coaches worked In 16 substitutes during the second half of play. The line-up was as follows: Annapolis. Position. V. M. I. Whiting, Burnham...Left end Morrison Farley, McKinney, - Piersol Left tackle James (capt.)

Annapolis, Md., Oct. 8. The 11 men from Franklin and Marshall College who arrived in Annapolis last night for the purpose of helping St. John's open the local football season returned to Pennsylvania this afternoon carrying only a "Zip" for their end and 11 points on the Orange and Black end of the score. The visitors were much the heavier, but were unable to handle themselves fast enough to keep the dots on their lighter and more snappy opponents, who let them gain yards only on fake kicks and other trick plays. Both teams played almost a complete line-bucking game, there being but little resort to punts, and in addition to this the contest was pecuilaifor its lack of center plays, not a single attempt at the middle of the line being made by either team. All the plays were short end and tackle combinations, these seeming to be the only thing relied upon for gains. The first score was made eight minutes after the beginning of the half, after the St. John's boys had forced their opponents to within five yards of the goal on short line plunges, following which Smith was pushed over for the score. Green failed to kick goal for this, but was successful after Duvall's touchdown. The line-up : St. John's. Position. F.andM.

DID NOT USE WIND SHIELD Eonr Attempts Made Before Driver Alta McDonald Nods To Starter For The AVord. Lexington, Ky., Oct. 8. Major Delmar marked a new trotting record today when he circled the track In 2.01, clipping a half second off the record made by Cres-ceus at Columbus. Major Delmar used no wind shields or other speed contrivances. Twice before he had equaled the Cresceus record, the last time at Oakley Park. The fractional time in the mile today was 29, 5y2, 1.29, 2.01. The track was In perfect condition. The temperature was uncomfortably warm and the wind was blcwlng from the southwest, which gave the trotter an advantage until he had circled the half, w-hen the wind was against him. Major Delmar was driven, by his trainer, Alta McDonald. His pacemaker was a runner driven by Scott Hudson. At the fifth try for the start McDonald nodded to Starter Walker for the word. The terrific gait was almost too much for the runner, who gradually lagged behind. A second pacemaker was picked up at the half. An enormous crowd watched Major Delmar. Major Delmar is a bay gelding and Is owned by E. E. Smathers, of New York. BettlDg before the trial was 1 to 2 over, even money under and 5 to 1 he won't equal the record. The first race on the card was the Wilson stake, 2.20 class pacing, value $2,000. It was won in straight heats by Morning Star, the favorite. Scott Hudson won the next two races with Mainland and Nancy H.

RUSHING WORK AT PIMLIC0 Glass-Covered Stands And More Room For "Hookies" Ready, Sixty-seven horses by actual count were either In stalls or on the track at Pimlico yesterday. Forty carpenters were making repairs to the fixings, and 14 men were on the course with rollers. A letter received from Secretary William P. Riggs, who is in New York, stated that more than 200 horses were assured from the metropolis. The big force of employes at Pimlico hag lots of work to do. The race meeting coming as it does in early November may meet with cold weather, and to overcome this the ends and the rear of the grandstand are to be enclosed in glass. A new office for the secretary and one for the assistant secretary is in course of construction. A new guard rail on the lawn in front of the grandstand has been built. Tomorrow work of tearing out the rear of the ground floor under the grandstand will be started. The bar is to be set back and more room given for bookmakers in the betting ring. Bets have been made that there will be anywhere from 10 to 30 nook-makers doing business. All of the stabling has been repaired and the paddock put in shape. The weighout scale room has been increased to double the original size and all seats in the grandstand thoroughly overhauled. Superintendent John Brennanstated yesterday that he would have the entire steeple course ready for use by Tuesday. The last jump in the old course is to be cut out, having six jumps o the mile. Secretary Itlggs Is expected home today. THEY RACED FOR HORSES Winner Took Parse Of $1,000 And Tlie IiOsinjr Thoroughbred. New York. Oct. 8. The match race between Sidney Taget, on IJalbert, a 2-year-old, and Thomas Williams, who rode the 4-year-old Frank L. Pcrley, which was run at Morris Park today, resulted in a decisive victory for Paget. lialbert broke in front and won easily by 100 yards. The race was for $1,000 a side and the winner to become the owner of both horses. The race was a heavy betting affair, and a considerable sum changed hands. Both were held at even money, and the 2-year-old ran the three furlongs in 3S flat. The race was the result of an argument between Thomas n. Williams, president of the California Jockey Club, and Sydney Paget as to the advisability of training and racing thoroughbreds until they were at least four years old. Sydney Paget believes that thoroughbreds are not harmed by moderate early training. Williams theory is that racers would be better if not trained or raced until at least four yearn old.

The opening week of the bowling season did not turn out as well as had been expected. Taken as a whole, the week's work was dull and lacked interest. This was mostly noticeable with the tenpln games. Very few were played and few good scores were made. On Monday night at the Diamond the Maryland State Bowling League will open its season.

National Baseball Commission May Be Asked To Decide. Chicago, Oct. 8. The controversy that followed the playing of the series of postseason games last fall between the Chicago American League Club and the Chicago team of the National League has been renewed by President Comiskey and President Hart, the respective managers of the two clubs. The probability tonight is that the National Baseball Commission will be .asked to settle the dispute. In a signed statement given out by Hart In reply to a communlcnfion from Comls key requesting that a scries of post sensoti games be arranged at the end of the playing season Hart, In refusing to agree to the proposition, stated that his reason for objecting to such a contest was that tho games would not be under tlie control of the governing body of the leagues, and therefore there would be too great an opportunity for players who might desire to "throw" games for a money conslderal Ion, as Cere was no way In which the guilty could be punished. In his statement Hart Intlmat.'-s that tlie games last fall for t ha local championship were not decided on their merits, claiming that one of tlie pitch, ers on his team deliberately threw away games to the American League team. Ueplying to these statements Comiskey tonight issued a statement In which be says : "If Hart's charges have any foundation in fact we must know it, and the guilty will be punished. The Chicago American League Club courts n thorough Investigation, and I will at. once place the matter be-fore the National Commission.
