THE OMAHA DAILY BEE. TWENTY-FRIST YEAH. AHA xnniJAY MORNING 1 OVEMBER 27 , 1SUL NUMBER 102- HAD TOO MUCH HARD MUSCLE , Iowa University Boys Too B'g and String for the Nebraska Toira. VERY PRETTY BUT. ONE SIDED GAME , Gnl'nnt Flulit Made hr the Klovcn i'rom I Inroln A nliiHt OddH'Ihcy Could Not Overcome Defeat Nut 1CTOKY porches upon the banners of Iowa. There was probably - ably a crowd of 2,500 P001"- ! ' ntl n bdl- "nut and cnthus- ins'lc ' crowd it was t00' ( lssclllblcd nt day afternoon to witness the great Interstate foot ball match , between the teams ot the Iowa and Nebraska universities. The day was an ideal ono for the sport , being neither too warm nor too cold , but of that even temperature best calculated for successful play. The sky was overcast with a film of leaden clouds , rendering the light of that mellow charactet host suited for the visual organs when put to n prolonged and severe strain' . At ns early an hour as half-past ! ! the grounds were fairly swarming with the excited followers of the two teams , nnd at the commencement of hostilities the seono was a picturesque ono indeed. Lining the u-cst limit line was phnlunx after phalanx of men nnd bovs , while In the rear ot these wns nn ocean of vehicles , .from the cumbersome tally-ho down to the tandem dog cart , filled with fair women nnd bravo men , all bedecked in guy colors , which lent much light nnd t-no to what might otherwise have bcon considered a very somber Hem- brunut. These that were fearful of the efforts of the November nir had their uneasiness quicisly dissipated after tlio ball was once put into play , and tbo muscle nnd brawn of the two rlvul stntes were in active conflict. The quick shifting of the situation , tbo rush and whirl nnd the general hurly-burly of the battle , as ono side or the other advanced or fell back , keep all the senses alert and the blood bounding through one's volts in suoh torrents ns to preclude nil thoughts ot frigidity or discomfort. ntnrrcd the Occasion. One drawback to the situation was that both colleges met dimming tlio same colors- old gold milking it nn Impossibility , so far na the crowd wont , to distinguish friend from foo. Again , It is but just to chronicle that tlio arrangements made for the emno vesterdny , lot the blame full on whomsoever it may , were about the shabbiest and most inadequate that could possibly bo conceived. Even the lines of demarkatlon were only dimly slathered over tboscro and yellow turf , nnd up to ten minutes before thu game was culled the goals bad not been established nor the poles up. Again , there were no provisions made fur keeping back the crowd , nnd as a result ubout half the gcmo was a veritable scramble between the crowd nnd the players to determine who should have possession of the gi-ounds. Of course this wns n big hindrance to anything liku brilliant , work nnd a disappointment to that portion tion of the throng who were forced to maintain their positions In the rear ot the striving masses. If it uos impossible to scctiro su(11 ( clout police protection $10 worth of clothesline would huvo been umplo to have preserved the players' territory free from obstruction nnd Interference. But as to the story of the gamo. Too . 'Inch Beef. It was simply n case of being out-clnssod , tbo big , strapping , athletic lownns speedily ( lomonstr.uing their supremacy In nil tlio details that go toward furnishing a close and stubborn contest , and It required no export In tlio intricacies of the play to sco why the old void ot Iowa City Haunted proudly and triumphantly in tbo autumnal breezes , while the old gold of Lincoln was trailed and bedrnbbled in tbo dust. Tito Nobruskuns were overmatched and outplayed from the ilrst shriek of Hefcreo Uuvo Holbrook's whistle until the melee reached a termination In the gathering shades of eventide. By all odds the bolter team carried oft the laurels , but in asserting this no disparagement Is meant to the doughty Nebraska boys , for they made a heroic struggle , and hud they not bcon so inestimably on tbo upper side of the scales , would certainly liavo pulled out n victory. In a thorough knowledge of tha game , and in finesse , craftiness and agility , they were the superiors of their antagonists , and only lowered their colors ns an acknowledgment to overwhelming brute force. So It v\llt bo seen , notwithstanding their signal discomfiture , the Nebraska cloven bus nothing to bo ashamed of. In Flippln , the colored hillf back , the Lincoln brigade has a playorof whom nny eleven may bo proud. A man ot herculean mould , with muscles trained to thu hardness of iron , n level head nnd n pair of legs on him that nro ns capable of covering urouud witti n speed that might ba likened unto the No- brusua winds when out for n llttlo blow over the measureless pralrio. But it Is not to Fllpplu ulono to wham ull tbo credit belongs for tlio st.ibborn resistance Nebraska made , for ho had In Captain Johnston , White , Pace and Anderson assistants that could not Imvo been dispensed with , and and Stockton were frequently tbo right men in the right placo. 'For the lown cloven well It might bo Invidious to v/nrticularizo so far as they are concerned , as all are nervy , brainy , bustling , luibtllng players , Klllott. Sanford , Builoy , Larrabce and Ciormnn probably excelling. For excellent nnd effective work Johitut tbo line , Larrabco took the laurels , his rustling nnd tackling being superb , but in punting ho wns no butter than White of the Nubrnskas. The poor blocking olT of the latter team mudo It out of the question for the bucks to pain any vantage , while on the other hand Iowa was a tower of strength hero. Yet they did not attempt to secure victory by tlio new end play , relying almost solely upon thu wedge. They were not slow In recognizing lhat this was the easiest uvunuo to success , nnd they wonted It for nil It was worth , Consequently there was but llttlo kicking In thu game. Hut hero is the way In which the day was won and lost : Into Nulirnska'ri Torrlto-y , Thu battto opened with Iowa In possession othu ball , thu team opening with thu old wcdjjo scheme In which Full Buck Lnrrnbco mudu a gain of three yards , und thereafter the lowans forced the ball , by repeated executions of this trick , clear up to Nebraska's ton-yard lino. At this point the bull wus lost to the Lincoln boys on the fourth down. Two herculean efforts to gain ground through thu center failed , but on the third Cuptaln Johnston made a run around the right end , gaining full thirty yards , This brilliant achievement unlisted n salvo of cheers from the partisans of thu Nebraska crowd , In this play , which was ns brilliant ns any made In thu giuue , Skllcti , thu right end , cleared the Way and warded off In beautiful stylo. Johnston then attempted to send the full back around the right end , but ho was Intercepted and downed bv the sturdy Klllott. Tlio Lincoln contltujont was unable tomnko further progress and on the fourth down the bull again ravortcd to the Iowa City giants. 'Ilioy quickly lokt It again , however , for all lueir uttimpts to pusJi toward Nebraska's coal failed. The tatter's efforts were also futile , and Iowa aualn capturing tbo sphere , ] iy Irresistible rushing ana repetitions of tbo old V fake , loft balf back scored a touchdown , irlviiiK Iowa the Ilrst four points , From this Larrabce , by an unerring klcK , scored n goal , Score : Iowa , U ; Nebraska , 0. When \Vliitu Wan Hurt. The ball was speedily returned to play , Nebraska , by dint of tremendous .struggling , gaining 11 vo'yards , principally through the flcutness nnd good generalship of Full Back White. Then they surrendered the ball to lown , who mndo considerable trains by short runs through the center nnd the wedge , their most invulnerable mode of aggression. Captain Johnston , by his heroic assault on big Klliolt , prevented dire disaster , it was n great tackle. Wnlte , In an effort to emulate the captain , wont down with a trud that made tilings vibrato. Ho was severely injured and pnvo way to Substitute Moshor. The Iowa Brodignagians kept rlcht ahead , though , and quickly forced the b.ill over the line , scoring another touch down , thus increasing their load to 10. Larrabco essayed n goat but failed. Score : Iowa , 10 ; Nebraska , 0. lOiiHy lor Iowa Now. Good team wont on the port of Iowa , and just the reverse on the part of Nebraska , from this on until ttio close oC tno first half , iniido mutters assume the features of a picnic for the bivmny prohibition athletes. Nebraska's rush line was lamentably weak , and Its attempts at blocntng off were simply unavailing. In this respect Iowa "beet" told wofuliy , nnd when once they formed that resistless V n gain wns an absolute certainty. Flippln , the colored loft balf back of the Nebraska team , assumed a vast amount of tbo heavy work for his side , nnd some of his rushes were ot Unit character that never falls to evoke the plaudits ot an enthusiastic crowd. Ho not only played ball with hands and feet , buo kept his bead all the time , and in several tight corners , used it to admirable advantage. Finally the Lincoln team rcnlixod that there was but precious little hope for It , through the center or around tbo ends , nnd In consequence the ngilo Moshor took to kicking the ball. Ills first essay in this line was a brilliant punt over tho" opposing force's heads for fully fortv yards. Hero Elliott , Pieivo nnd Sanford - ford captured ground for lown by terrific rushes plump down the center. Nebraska's line was enervated h > this tremendous strain , and unequal to the task of staying their advance. Again and nsaln the lowans used the wedco , and finally succeeded In reaching Nebraska's ton-yard lino. Hero Larrabco , by irraeo of Plorco's magnificent blocking , scored another touch down. Score : Iowa , 11 ; Nebraska , 0. No points were made after this in the first halt , the referee calling tlmo n few moments subsequent to this play , leaving the Lincoln lads , bowever , possessors of the bull. In the Seeond Half. After the regulation ten minutes rest , the field wns again partially cleared and the battle , rosunibd. Tlio Nebmskans started off encouragingly by reason of several thrilling and successful rims bv Flippm , the copper-colored halfback , bis progress , however , being substantially abetted by Quarter Back Pace , Full Bucit Mosher and the ubiquitous Johnston. In ono of thoao dashes ho- was plucliily tackled by Larrabco and Bailey , end put on his back and pinned there. Hu held the ball , though , and was loudly cheered. In the following play , through a miserable fumble by Mosher , lo'wa took tbo ball. On four downs Nebraska again got possession , but despite their tremendous htrnirglcs they were unable to olTsut any of the vantage pained by their muscular adversaries. AVsis opelcsB for Ne1)riHlci. : This was on account of a very noticeable weakness in Nebraska's blockinir off , her rush line being vncillatory and at many points at , sen. Like White , Full Back Mosher punted , making a flno stride of over twont- liv > yards. Fcrrin cautiht the ball , but wns thrown before ho could recover himself nnd got awny. Hero again the lowans resorted to their favorite fake , the V , lilliott making a big train of ten yards in tlio outset , Gorman and Pierce assisting him finely. Ttion mrrabco and Pierce followed with decisive gains , their comrades in their assistance evincing splendid uniformity of purpose nnd execution. Left End Bailey and Hight Tackle Sanford malted Hi" ball close upon llio live-yard line , German a moment later achieving n touch down. No goal. Score : Iowa , IS ; Nebraska , 0. It required but a short time utter this for Iowa to run her total points up to 22 , By tbo longest run of Ibo game the ex-governor's son carried the ball clear to the live-yard line , Cicrmun succeeding Immediately theroupor ; with another touch down.

Simple and ImprcHsive Ceremonies Over the Itcma'iiM ol' ( Jov. llovoy. MOUNT VKUXOJC , Ind. , Nov. 2t5. This is ono of these dark , gloomy days which nro so common along the river nt this season of the year. At daybreak It was r.ilntug , but nlong In the forenoon thu clouds lightened up and ttiero was no moro rain , At 9 o'clock promptly the remains of Gov- erno" Hovoy were moved to tbo corridor of tbo court , house. The bulls of the city began tolling ns the coflln was carried out of the Hnvoy homestead nnd continued to sound during the entire forenoon , The pall baarors , representing Harrow post , were William Burnett , Christian Urcen , Knoch Uandolph , Leroy Jones , Dr. Huston and Frank Dixon. The remains rested in tbo court house until 11 : : iO o'clock nnd It is estimated that during that time 10,000 persons passed by the re mains. Upon the body being taken back to the homestead the military guard was withdrawn nnd the dead governor was loft alone with the family for one hour. During that time no ono was admitted to the bouse. Atl20 : ! ! the bouse was opened for the uncrul services. Tlio casket rested In ttio south front parlor and around it were gathered the relatives and near friends of deceased , the clergy nnd most prominent men attending the fiinornl. The services were simple. After the singing of n hymn , by o choir selected from the Alt. Vernon ftiurche * , Hov. Dodge , of the Mt. Vcrnon Methodist Episcopal church , offered prayer. The sermon was then preached by CJovornor Ira J. Chase , wuo talked for twenty-llvo minutes. The services nosed with sinclng and prayer , and the profession to the grave was Immediately formed , The formation , was ns follows : Mt. Vernon Mechanic ! band , advance guard of ( it-ami Army of thu Komi bile , state militia , horse unit bo'iy guard , family nnd friends , ministers of tno gospel , state olllcluls , members ot the bar , city olllcluls , visitors and cituet s , rearguard ( Srund Army of thu Kcpublio. The entire First rogimcnt , state mllitiu , with the exception of ono company , was in line and aNothe four comp.inlos from IhdinnupolK In all , ten companies. Nearly l.OJO tiraod Army of the Kepubllo men from posts In the First district , inarched to the grave , Uoaclnng the cemetery , Department Commander Walker took his plai'o at the head of the grave and the department chaplain ut ttio foot. The ( iratid Armv of the Republic nests wuru tnnsacd behind thu chupUiln and fronting the department commander. The mllitiu formed a hollow square around the grave. The beautUm rituul'of the Grand Army of the Hepublic was gone through with , nnd when tlio department commander had finished , ho called upon ox-dovernors Porter and Gray for remarks. Each spoke briefly of thu virtues or the dead governor. The exercises were closed with nravor by Governor C'hoso , whlls all stood with bowed heads , the uillltlu lired a saiuto and the Grand Army of the Republic bugle sounded taps , Princeton Shut Out In a Wonderful Game of Foot Ball. NEW JERSEY WAS SQUAHELY DEFEATED , New Hnvcn'H Hrawny AthlotcH Proved Their Superiority nt livery Point How the Great Battle * Was Won. MANIUTTAX Fini.t ) , New YOIIK Nov. 20. The greatest uthlet.ic event of the year is over. Yale and Princeton have fought their baltlo for supremacy on the foot ball field , and lone will It bo remembered by the thousands who saw ono of the finest games over played in this country. For weeks the generals of the two llttlo armies of men were drilling their forces for today's work , i'ho struggle wits ono of the events in tbo sporting world which the lovers of sport have faith In. It was n fight on its inontB , the better team won , and the better uho lost will pay over his cnsh knowing that ho had an honest run for his money. The gates were not opened until 10 o'clock but by that time great throngs of persona had gathered about the different entrances When the gates were opened there wns n rush that would have done credit , to the members of dither eleven. By It o'clock a great throng had gathered In the grounds and every moment It was augmented by fresh arrivals. Tally-hos and all manner of vehicles began to arrive at that hour. Tally-hos crowded with shouting students were to bo scon on every thorough faro leadIng - Ing to the grounds. These were draped In blue and draped in orange and black , but whichever color it was the noise was just the same. Tliolr I.UIIKS All KiRlit. Many were the ways In which the students chose to show their ptoforcnce. As waste to bo expected the free stands llllod up first. From every row of scats fluttered orange and black Hups and blue Hags. It was difficult to toll which color was tlio most prevalent. Tlio wearing of a llowor appeared to bo the mode 01 expressing a preference on the part of ttio women who were present. And the women formed no inconsiderable portion of the immense throng. Some , so there would bo no mistake as to how their sympathies wont , were blue costumes while others , and particularly a bevy of handsome brunettes , were striking costumes of orange and black. By noon the grand stand began to fill up. The lirst person to take a seat in that portion tion was a handsome young woman who were an Immense yellow chrysanthemum. She occupied a seat in front and when tbo Princeton boys saw her they howled aloud and for a long time. Tbo managers had prided thomselvcs'on ono thing which they were disappointed in afterward. They bad said that the grounds shod wutor like sand. This was far from being true. Tbo rain of last Monday in the Hold left moro marks than could oe covered up by the llttlo sawdust on bund. More than this , the game of yesterday between Wesloyau and University of Pennsylvania hud loft the turf In a badly cut up condition , which the rain that fell early in the afternoon did not help in the least. At 1 o'clocic n steady stream of humanity flowed in upon the stand. Pretty much all the other uvnilublo space had been taken by * that timo. The Yale Hug was hoisted on the northern end of the grounds , whore there were much hurrahing and blowing of horns. It was repeated when a tijror skin representing Princeton was hung out in front of the upper balcony of tbo main stand. Up to that time thnro wns n preponderance of Princeton colors about the grounds , but tbo adherents ot Yale kept coming in at the gates in whole droves and the stand soon became a moving muss of blue. Nothing hut Molac. Yale nnd Princeton were not the only colleges - legos doing the yelling. There were doleca- tions from every ether colleuo within u radius of ! IOO miles from Now York , nnd they all cheered lor one sldo or tbo other on the slightest provocation. University of Penn- sylvunia , Wcsleyan , Trinity , Columbia and a small bunch of Harvard men cheered for Yule , and among Princeton's backers were Rulers , Swartnmoro and a number of Pennsylvania collages. It did really seem as if the crowd would yell Itself out before the game begun. There was not a still moment from 11 o'clock to 12 o'clock. At 1 : 'M every available space about the flold wns occiiplod. Every seat on the different stands was occupied. On tbo long line of tally-hos stood students waving the different colors and blowing long and particularly villainous sounding horns. The collopo cries nnd college songs arose on every side. The rain had ceased entirely before this tlmn and every nno was happy. It wns estimated that there were about ISO,000 persons on the grounds fifteen minutes before the hour set for the game to begin. But moro Kept arriving constantly , not by dozens or scores but by hundreds. Fully 37,000 persons were in attendance before the game was called. It was estimated that the sum paid for admission to sco the CUIUQ would reach $50,000. Up From thu Stnl > len. At last , after the crowd bad waited hours thu Yale team filed out of the club house , Jumped over the fence nnd onto the field. It was a signal for renewed shouting , but ttio crowd had yelled so much tint there was really llttlo difference In the total noise. McClungwas tlrst , followed by Hartwclt nnd the others , and u'.l had their sweaters on. They hud scarcely got to the middle of the Held and tossed tlio ball around for a monuto , when "Stumpy" King vaulted over the fence and led the b'ueH ' nnd orange striped ycung men Into the arena. Princeton made more noise than Ynlu on this occasion , and did not grow tired so soon. With the largo number of substitutes , there were about fifty men on tlio Held. HcKlnnlni ; ol' the II ttle. There was a sudden wild deluge of shouts and blowing of horns and waving of flags .vlien thu two tennis were seen to erystalizo out of the scattered lot of players , and lineup In thu middle of tnu big L-ridlror. . Then , as oacli man bunt forward with his hands on his Knees and gazed bard ut bis opposite , tbo noise as suddenly stopped , and every ono of these moro than 117,000 wild men and women was as stilt us n statue , and every ono of these eyes was focnssed on ono little spot where the bull was. The great struggle that had been written about and tulked about and dioamt about so much for a year was to begin. Tnero were the men who stared each other hard in the eye and waited tor the first plunge. Princeton won the ton and chose the west sldo of the field. Sy minus , the giant center rush of the Princetons , hud the ball , and us the piovera drew up on either sldo of tlio mi- uulnary line ha snapped back the ball to * King , the star quarter back. Quick ns "V" formed nnd llgbtulng the famous was , King recorded for his side eight hard fought yards. Symincs surprised the great San ford , the center of the Yules , by lilt inagnttlcont Intur- furence with the ball In play. Again Symines shoots tlio .spheroid bacK and tins tlmo Flint , the loft half back , makes n dash only to lose live yards when downed by Uio great HofTol- linger. Flint's little gain of three yards Is forgotten when Full Back Homuns gave the Ilrst sl hl ot his ability as a kickorof the leather bag , which ho sent like a shot for thirty yard * Into Yale's territory alter King had passed the ball buck to htm. Vale GelH the Hull. Now Yttlo for the first tlmo has the ball , which was caught In clover style by McCor- mlck , the full back of the Yale olovon. The ball U uow In play , well lo the middle of the field. It Is snapped back to McClung , Yale's doughty captain , who , amidst a storm of Yale's cheers and thu waving of blue Hags , makes ono of his famous' runs , wall toward the left of the Hold , and aided by magnificent Interference records a gala of fifteen vards. Hols dually thrown heavily by Vincent , the rising Princeton star. Bliss now takes the cue , as the ball again comes In play , with the tvvo sldc.s lined up face to face , and In a great spurt makes oldit vards , but for offsldo play Is allowed but live yards. Another gain by the sumo player , who Is downed by VInoont. On the two opposing linns the boys face each other iiguin , and whqn the ball Is passed swiftly back to Bliss ho punts it high In the nir Just In tlmo to csciipo the ynrushing ornngo and black , nnd the lively Homans catches It forty yards and returns' It to the sumo spot with a punt tlmt sends It Into the hands of McCormlck. The Yale man has no tlmo to breathe , for ho Is downed by Vincent before ho can move from his trucks. Tbo first live mlu.uto.3 of play elapses ns the men line up nt centre with tliujiall In the hands of the blues. mg' " Grout Hun. The second live minutos.opnns with great applause for Captain Al'Clung , who maitos again of twenty yards with a run around the left. Ho wns dually tackjod and thrown by the giant Ulggs. Ctoso fighting followed , on whioh tliroo downs were counted against the blues , nnd the excitement of the multitude wns nt a fever heat , for all the tlmo there wns such a mingling of ut"ns nnd logs and bodies of the player.1 ! n ? mudo it impossible to keep truck of the individual players. Again the Yale cohorts cheer a thirly-flvo- yard punt by Bliss , but It was the turn for the "tigers" when the old reliable Homans returned the boll twentv-llvo yards into the hands of Captain A'cClung. At this point there was a delay of Hvo minutes over tno discussion of a point in the play and the 11 rat , ten minutes had passed. As the men line up on the far north boundary of thu Hold , McCormick gains flltocu yards , to bo tackled beautifully by Pee , who was well up toward Princeton's twenty-live- yard line. Bliss makes a wild rush toward Princeton's line , out there is no gain. "Old D < assail" has the ball. Again Homans makes ono of his famous nicks fcr forty yards , and his men rush on so swiftly that the ball is put in play on a down. Ileffoi- finger could make but four yards in a rush in Princeton's center , and MeCormicK follows with a rush for eight more , and tbo ball is still with the blues. Scoring Slow Worlc. The "V" trick falls to work , and MeCor- mick mulling , Bliss kioks the ball forty yards , while the Yale men chcor till the very air is blue. But little Pee catches the wlnd-Hllod oag in line form , and fifteen mln- tcon have passed with no points scored by either side. As Princeton gets the 4ball and passes It back to Homans who klcits It nigh toward the eastern Held , McCormlck stops it on the bound nt Yulo's forty-rod lino. The twenty minutes' play ends with a kick out beyond bounds by Bliss to tha south of the Held. The next flvo minute * is filled with active play which gained bought for either side , until llomnus makes n croat kick of filty yards , which McCormick drops , and tbo Yalcs by sticor good luck retain tbo ball. M'Clunp trains fifteen ynrus by the aid of grand interference of his mon and Mo- Cormick's two rushes of twenty yards down the centre. Twenty-five rninutos have passed. With the ball in piny again , Homans works a clean catch of Bliss' punt of forty yards , and after tbo men line lit ) Flint makes again of fifty yards. Then the ball Hies back to Homans , who , as . sure as fate , kicks it well back InYale's territory into McCor- mick's hands , forty > ynrd < . kown the flold. M'Clung loses on Harold's < .tacklo and Bliss kicks for twenty yards fyeforo 'the ball is caught by Pee as the first balf hour goes by. Ilomung Still Punting. Again Princeton tries hSr full back's punting powers and she does well , for tbo ball speeds forty yards away and for the third time McCormlck muffs thoball , , as tbo orange and black pounces upon him. A miserable ] umblo of legs and arms men of both siaos in a scrimmage whore individual play cannot bo noted makes the thousands frantic with enthusiasm. As the tanclo is pulled loose , it is seen that Ynlo has tbo ball , and of this tbo Yale cheer was tbo signal. Small gains after the struggle were made by M'Clung and Mc- Cormlak. Bliss makes n great run to the right , gaining eighteen yards , whore the mighty Flint lavs him low The first thirty-live minutes hnvn passed , as the applause resounds through the Held. 'Yulo now forces the play , ns she recovers from her surpolso at the \vork ot her gallant foo. She must do or dto. M'Clung and McCormick full to got in and Bliss punts the ball well into Princeton's territory. On the return McCormlck fails to catch Homnns1 punt , but fulls on the ball , saving it for Ynlo. Scrimmage nfter ccrimmago follows , and Higgs of Princeton showsjwhnt a hero ho is as ho prevents the grout J Heffolllnger from gaming for Yale by the mighty rush of his UHK ) pounds. Each scorned impassable to the other. As tbo forty minutes passes Yale has tno ball and has gained but llttlo ground. Twice the Ynlo mon try the Princeton center - tor , which stands ns a rock against her. Forty-llvo minutes have passed , while Yale has made llttlo more than enough to still retain the egg-shaped bull. Five Minutes to' Scorn In. There is now but five minutes moro of the first half to play Hvo minutes having been taken up by the delay and lively work must bo done to scnro before the close of the first Inning. Princeton trots the ball , but stuns In by losing it in a fumble. McClung mudo u desperate ten-yard gain well up toward Princeton's twonty-dvo-ynnl lino. Bliss advanced tha leather sphorqid still further to bo thrown heavily by Vincent , A wild cheer broke forth from the admirers ol the titters wbon it was seen the plucky Vincent also gained the ball. As the ball is put In play ugaln Princeton's captain tries his full buck's ability nt the punt. Through the air the ball idles for forty-tlvo yards and finds McCormlcic waiting for it. Vincent is on his back before tba aal ! is cold. Time is flying , only two minutes nro lolt , every norvu is nt tension , the drizzling ruin that has fallen twenty minutes is unnoted. Yule lines up opposlto 'tier foo. The ball shoots buck to Bliss , who punts well to Princeton's field. Tho' inning ends with a live-yard gain for Flint by the use of the great "V" trick to center , Yale Was De.spcr.ite. In n driving rain nt.1:15 : p. in. the Yule and Princeton men leave their dressing rooms to begin the ( second half of their llirht. The Prlncotonlans uro confluent , almost too confident , nnd cheer nftor hoer is sent up in honor of their brilliant work in the earlier part of the gams. Desperation is pictured on the face of every Ynlo player , and the followers of the blue oncourugo thorn with a series of wild yells. Cn plain McClung has given his men some timely advlcn nnd they realize that n determined effort must bo made at thu outsat to break through Princeton's lino. Klggs has been holding big Holfellingor quite safe , nnd Princeton , bus been tackling well , too. It is Yulo's bull , and with n mighty effort she wedges through Princeton's line tor five yards. On the next down Princeton holds her own , but presently Yale crushes through Princeton's center for five yards , and butoro the air is yet clour of llylag mud Princeton's canter has beau punctured for two yards moro. i'rlncetonlans look-on In dismay us tbo glguntlo HofTolllngor mukns an opening through which McCiungts carried for five ynrdn. Princeton Is gradually losing ground and nothing but tha lois ot tua ball for Yule can prevent the blues from planting the bull past Princeton's goal. Yale Hunrod FIrHt.

In Purls the Husslan minister nnd the French dlplomattats could not speak pliitnly to each other , because tlioy had too much to say. In Berlin M. do Olors and the German officials had to conllno themselves to commonp'iacos , and why I Because - cause thoyhnd nothing to say. As you know , M. do Giers had n twenty-minuto audience with tbo emperor. The Husslan minister - tor wore an embroidered uniform and tbo grand cordon of the Black liuglo. Tbo emperor received him in n studiously calm mid indifferent way , and avoided nil ( illusion to politics. Ho made pollto inquiries about the envoy's stay at Wiesbaden , and so forth. Next ho nuked for news of the c/.nr's health , and , having talked for a short time about the Kussian crops , broke oft the nudtonco. General von Caprivi , the Gorman chancellor , was rather less reserved in his subsequent interview with M. do Giors. Ho said that Germany and her allies bad peaceful aims , an assurance which the Russian envoy answered by declaring that Russia aud her friends were not ono whit loss peaceful. So the much talkud of visit of M. do Giers to Berlin ha ? had no visible result. At most , it lm served as a pretext for much ominous wagging of heads by diplomatic wiseacres. Much grave slBnlllcanco attaches to the speech of the ompornr to the guards , to which I referred yesterday. In this year of grace it is strange to llnd a sovereign assuring his troops , as the German emperor did , that it was perilous for soldiers to have much to do with civilians , and advising thorn to hold aloof from them. The emperor also remarked that his troops might have nuod of their courage in domestic conflicts. Speeches like this , of course , help on the cause of socialism. They show that internal complications may force the young emperor to go to war. A struggle begun under such circumstances would bo to Germany what the war of 1870 was to Franco. New French TnrlfT. The senate has approved the first seventy clauses of the general tariff adopted by the chamber of deputies , but despite tbo objections of the minister of commerco.-tbo senate has refused to sanction the application of tbo minimum tariff to salt meats , canned provisions , game and turtle. The minister pointed out that iho proposed measures were aimed principally at the United States , whoso annual ovports of provisions represented 500,000,000 francs. Tlio senators refuse to change their minds. They stick to their ultra protectionism. A proposal was also maao by the minister of agriculture to postpone the debate on tbo duties on imported flour till June. It is rumored in theatrical circles that the Melba scandal will bo compromised by the intervention of the duo d'Aumale , who Is willing to pay Mr. Armstrong , the singer's husband , heavy damages to got tno duo d'Orloans ' out of his scrape. Those who know the due d'Aumnlo's good nature and indulgence in such matters think the report worth crcdenco. It seems true that thrco Englishmen have been arrested ns spies at St. Etlcnno , for trying to securospcclmonsof the now French and Uussian rilles. From documents found on the prisoners it would appear that the German government has a regularly organized spy agency in London. The affair will no doubt make much stir hero.

When the national committee. called on Mr. Blalno tlio other day Mr. Blalno said that from the prosrmt gathering of rcprosuntatlvo republicans from all over the country , they had obtained much Information which could bo of great vnluo to them In conducting the forthcoming national campaign , lie was reminded that tins committee would have nothing to do with the conduct of Ibo next campaign. "That is a great pity , " snld the secretary , and ho then went on lo give reasons why it would bo an excellent policy to clmniro thu present method and hereafter let every national committee , instead of expiring by limitation when thu now candidates wore nominated , continue lo act until after the elec tion. Having worked toirulhor for four years. the members of the committee have much knowlod o of detail , which Is lacking to n now committee. Air. Bliiina's suggestion .toomed to strike the commltteomon very favorably and it is not impossible that a proposition will bo made at thu next convention to make the change , but Lund Commissioner Curler takes another view. Ho has been sccrotnry of tbo national congressional committee for some years and Is , therefore , in a position to speak advisedly on the subject. Not 11 I ructloaI Idea. "Mr. Blaino's Men may bo very good on the surface , " said he , "but It would network work in practice. The national committco ought to bo eiioson at the sumo time the presldi-ntiiil candidates nro ctiojon , in order to bo thoroughly in touch with the candidates and their platform. A committco which holds over muy have nflllmtlon with some particular candidate who Is not thu choice of the national convention , and in that case the candidate fails to secure tlio legal support which a committee chosen with special respect to his nomination would givo. Furthermore , there Is 11 popular error as to tlio amount , of work which a national committee does H is not the working body of tbo presidential campaign , for the executive committee does all tbo hard work. Mr. Blaino's idea could not bo carried out , therefore , by continuing this executive committco in ofllce , for it may bo made up of men entirely outside of tbo national committee. "Mr. Dudley , for instance , who was troas. urer of the executive committee which did the hard work of the Harrison campaign , was not a member of the national committee but was chosen because of his special lltnoss forthowonc. So also Mr. Biirbour , the present treasurer. Is not a member of the national commutes. " Tlio suggestion of Mr. Blatno Is not likely to bo curried out if the politicians accept Mr. Carter's theory.

"If I were Mr. Blaine I would not accept n presidential nomination if it were tendered to mo by nuoliimatlon and I were siuro of election tion , " said ox-Sonator Palmer of Michigan this morning after an allusion to the World's fair commission , of which ho is president. "In the first plncu , " continued tlio ox-son- ator , "Mr. Blalno has got nil the credit out of national politics ho could got under any circumstances , It would not. add to his laurels to DO president and in his present ofllce bo can got ns much credit ami satisfaction as ho could if in the presidential chair and nt the sumo time ho may have all the pleasures mid none of the responsibilities.
