Last week the annual business meeting of
the Intercollegiate Foot Ball association uas
held In New York. Princeton and Yale are
the only members now. anil the delegates
present were : T. 0. Trenchard , E. 12. Munn
and A. 0. Mllluank of Princeton , and E. S.
Cable nnd P. A. H Inker of Yale. The moat
Important matters tlial came up were the
choices of date of tlic game between the two
big colleges and a selection ot suitable
Grounds. Neither was decided. There Is
no lack of ground ? on tvhlch the game could
IJG played , and It la only a question of se
lecting the one most accessible and of the
money to lie made. Manhattan Field will
probably bo again ( elected.
Dut the question of the date Is causing a
good deal of trouble. At a meeting of the
Princeton Graduate advisory committee last
Tuesday It was decided to maintain that tlie
date of the game be not changed from
Thanksgiving day , unless the Yale
faculty objtct. If the . Yale faculty
objects , however , Princeton will consent to
have the date changed to the following
Saturday , December 1 , Yale decidedly ob
jected to playing on Thanksgiving day , and
nt the meeting1 of the association Captain
Hlnkey Insisted that giime should he

that ItVIIH Impossible far the team to be In

Nothing definite has been decided yet
and theie Imvo been reports that there will
be no name. This Is hunlly piobnble. The
Katne linn become an feature In the
cast , and too much money can he obtained
from It , to be used In paying the bin ex
penses of keeping a successful terim , to
warrant Its abandonment. It is said that
Yale has even Kane so far as to demand
that the game be postponed until Uecemer
10. Princeton cannot play later than De
cember 1 on account of objections of the
faculty. In all probability then the triune
Will come oft on December 1. This will be
Biilllclent time for avcll trained team like
Yale to recover from Injuries received ten
days previously.
Princeton Hill meet the University of
Pennsylvania on November 10 , probably It
Philadelphia. There was considerable talk
of having the game tnke place In Trenton ,
but that I" ) not probable. Pennsylvania
will not play Yale this year. Captain
Knlpe of Pennsylvania hau said positively
that the panic will not tnke place. There la
n. general rejoicing- over the fact that liar
Vttrd has refused to meet Princeton , as till"
will practically Insure a game with rennsyl
vanla. The Harvard-Pennsylvania game wll !
occur on Thanksgiving dny.
Another hat game that will occur on
Thanksgiving day Is that between Cornel
and Ann Arbor. Cornell saw Inst year
what lack of coaching did. The managers
have obtained Newell , Harvaid'a old star
tackle , and he Is doing wonders with tlv
green material , Indications point to th <
college having1 the strongest team thn.
ever represented her. Corne-lllans think
that they have another Oagood In Slur-
buck , a new man , but who runs fast nnd
strong nnd exhibits wonderful enduianci
and sand.
Two of the- big teams were scored n K.I Ins
last week. Whether this Is to be attributed
to the new rules or whether the fact thri
the minor collects. In obtaining coaclic :
from the star players of the blj ? team" , hnvi
brought out better play , Is hard to decide.
I3rown scoied a touchdown against Harvard
nnd William : ) one against Yale , and kept
the contest a tie for nearly the llrst half.
In this game It Is said that lllilkey ill liber

Blon and Heard was In place , but looked
over his shoulder. Hlnkey saw him iim !
rushlnR up behind administered a kick
while lieaid was In a stooping position urn
nngrlly ordered him to get Into place In
better form. Hlnkey , in training the team
last year , was notorious for the brutal Ian
jruage he used to the men on the Held. II
has used the tame tactics this ycai , am
rumors which at that time were believed t
toe unfounded have been spieud that h

Yale showed up very poorly also In th
same with the Crescent Athletic club 01
New York. The score was 10 to 0 In favo ;
of Ynle. W. T. Bull says : "Within tin
recollection , of the oldest graduate sticl
weak play on the part of the college men
could not bo recalled , e"en In all the years
the two have met In annual games. Thf
attempts of the line men to carry the bal
through the Crescents' rush line wen
quite laughable. " Pennsylvania ilefeatet
the Crescents four days after by the score
of 22 to 0. The play of all the unlverslt ;
men was creditable. Whnrton wasi
against Sanford , the ex-Yale guard , nn
toyed with his bits' opponent. Minds n
"Wojionhurst , the tackles , advanced the ba ]
well and tackled strongly. Center Rusl
Bull held his own. very well for hla lira
name against a strong opponent. In th
back field Gilbert carried oft the honors am
followed his Interference beautifully. Os
peed can't learn to da that , apparently ; I
lie could there- would be no back In tin
country to compare with him. The lean
that lined up will. In nil probability , lit
the 'Varalty , and Is as follows : Left end ,
ItOBengarten ; left tackle , Wagonhurst : left
guard. Woodruff ; center , Hull ; right guartf
/sVharton ; right tackle , Minds ; right end
Upton ; quarterback , Knlpe ; left half hack
Gilbert' right half hack , Osgood ; full back
The only change In Princeton's team thl
last week Is the moving ot Morse from Inl
back to quarter. Trenchard went back t (
hla place at end. It was like bringing oui
a new team. Morse played a quick , head }
gam.e. and though his ankle bothered him
he made- some pretty runs. Ho will b
sorely missed at half , but It Is clear that h
IB the only man on the Held who can pin'
quaitcr as It must be played , If Prlnccto
la to win this year. The work of the team
has not been especially strong In the game :
last week , but yet the play has been bet
ter than of the other teams , with ] > osslbl
the exception of Pennsylvania ,
Hard luck seems to have given lip n'
other pursuits and taken up Ita abode wit ;
the Harvard team. Grey , half back , brok
his leg , and 'Acton , at guard , fell on th
ball and dislocated his elbow. Hoth th
men were practically sure to make th _
varslty , and the accidents have put them
out of the race , for good. Brewer , Wright
Ington and Drown have been laid off will ,
bad ankles. The only satisfaction that Is
left IB that the season Is still young.
The week's practice and games show tha
Pennsylvania Is the only team that has Im
prpved. The other three teams appea
rather to have retrograded.
On the Pacific slope the game has In
creased In popularity this year apparently.
The prreat event of the year Is , of course ,
the Thanksgiving game between Ldand
Stanford university nnd the California State
university , nnd the teams of both are prac
ticing hard. The line of the Stanford uni
versity will probably be the same as last
year , with three exceptions. The backs will
all be new. There are very few good candi
dates , and the outlock Is gloomy. There are
a number of positions to 1111 on the team
of the State university , but candidates are
numerous , and California Is In hopes of pullIng -

CHICAGO , Oct II The announcement of
the Washington Park club that 11 will hold
no more race meetings does not mean that
( here will bo no more- racing on the track ,
but simply that the club will not assume
control ot the racing- . The organization has
always Seen nn much of a social as n racing
coterie , nnd the members of thq club were
socially cmbarrafB l nnd personally annoyed
by the. Indictment of the club olllclaln last

ast night It was thought President
Vhceler was extravagant. The expenses
. ' the race track this season were some
55,000. and this , rat I the nntl-Wliceler pirty ,
as far too much ,
The announcement of last night was
.rne-ly In n racing way. Four stakes for

Ikfly to be nullified. Oeorgp V. Hanklns
if the Chicago Fair association , who oper-
tes the new Harlem track , raid after he
.ail henrd of the board's action : "I shall
make the Washington Park club an offer
o take the stakes which have closed and

There has been nn Immense amount of
writing done concerning that historical spot ,
the "Tower ot London , " and &UI1 there has
been n great deal left unsaid concerning
Ills ancient and Interesting edifice , During
y stay In London this season I spent con-
derablo time In looking through and ex-
mining the different portions loft open to
Isltors. There arc several towers and wings
i use by the government , which visitors
ro not allowed to enter , but still there Is
nough left open to the public to keep the
Isltor busy for many days , should ho bo In-
crested In historical rose-arch.
William the Conqueror very soon after
litalnlng possession of the kingdom , selected
fie ground on which the toner stands today

cstlncd In after years to hold some ot the
most Illustrious men nnd women of all times.
rom the eleventh century a hup at to the
resent day. When this spot was selected
y tha Illustrious Norman It was partly
enimed In by the ancient Roman wall built
n the fourth century , and just before the
eparturo of the liomatis from British soil ,
t Is supposed that the construction of the
ewer was commenced about ten or twelve
cars after the battle of Hastings , although
ho exact date Is not known. The tower has
icon remodeled In part and Improved from
Ime to time , until It has assumed the vast
Intensions and we might say peculiar nrchl
.ectural appearance of the present time ,
'hero Is to bo found In the building almost
11 styles of architecture which have flour-
shed In England from the beginning of Its
( instruction until toil ay.
There Is an open space within the walls
Imost In the center of the tower called the
green , whereon most of the executions took
lace , and they wore many. The spot
thereon the lovely Lady Jane Qrey , Que'en
iVnno Boleyn , Queen Katharine , llflh wife
of Henry VIII. , and numerous others met
death , la marked by a large slab of stone
set deep Into the earth , nnd the visitor can
hero stop and muse over the scenes which
must have taken place during the various
executions of lovely women , Christian men
and scoundrels , If lie feels Inclined to do so
Whtlo standing upon this spot I was more
nc Ined to Imagine the scenes of the execu-
.lon of the Lady Jane Grey than any of the
rest , and I stood for some time wrapped In
deep thought , my mind turning to an old
chroniclers' description of this most fiendish
of crimes , committed by those whom this
jc-aiitlful and accomplished woman had
lilthcrto been betrayed Into believing her
best friends.
This writer says "About 10 o'clock on

What shall I do ? Where Is It ? ' One o
the slanders bye guydlng lur thereunti
she layde her head douno upon the block
and stretched forthe lier body , and said
'Lord , Into Thy handst I commendo m

With the history of the past Ufa of thl
accomplished woman In the mind and view
Ing the exact spot on which her executloi
took place , can you Imagine anything mor
touching when wo consider the unquestlonei
goodness ot all her dexds , and when we re
member also that at this age goodness wai
at such a premium. We can hardly under
stand that any set of men could bring abom
her death in this manner , be they even s
wicked as at the period of her execution.
In the chapel most ol the : people * execute
on the green have been burled , and He then
to this day , Macauley , In hla "History o
England , " says of It ; "Thither have bee ;
carried through Miccesslve ages , by the rut )
hands ot gaolers without one mourner fo )
lowing , the bleeding relics of men wh
have been captains of armies , the leaden
of parties , the oracles of senates and th
ornaments of courts. "
I presume I attach more significance to
these ancient executions than is their due ,
but I was always charmed by anything
historical , and It does not seem that these
de.ds which have been written of and sang
In prose and poetry bear the same stamp
as do the executions and crimes of the
present day ,
The Ucaucliamp tower , where all the
notables were Imprisoned for eeveral hundred
years , has been preserved as Intact as pos
sible , and hero we can tee the designs upon
the stone walls scratched by sharp Instru
ments In the hands of Illustrious people , wheat
at the time did not know how long they
wcro to remain within these dreary walls ,
and , when released , whether the act would
be accomplished by the executioner or gaoler.
Here , In a room about thirty feet square , I
should say , and without two small windows ,
set deep into tha stone walls , furnishing-
light , some of the most noted people of the
llrltlsh Isles spent year * of their lives In
solitude , and , us a witness to their Idle
moments , left upon the walls their coats of
arms , names , etc. , some of the designs
being executed In a most artistic manner.
Probably the on requiring the moat work
and exhibiting the > greatest amount of skill
was that done by John Dudley , created earl
of Warwick , and who died In 1551. He was
the oldest son of the duke of Northumber
land. There weret five brothers In the
Dudley family , namely Ambrose , earl of
Warwick , created 1661 ; Gulldford , beheaded
In 155-1 ; Robert , earl of Leicester ; Henry ,
killed at St. Quentln ; John , the eldest , and
the cue whose work remains In the tower
to bear witness ot Ills Imprisonment , was
Incarcerated on the 25th of July , 1553 , and
remained vrllliln the totter until August 18
of the name year , nhtri 'ho was tried for
high treason , found guIHjr and returned to
the tower.
He wrote n letter ( O'Quecn Mary , In which
ho quoted nn old pro-fcrb , ' "A living dog IB
better thnn a dead lion , " but , notwithstand
ing his earnest appeals ( or life , both to the
queen and through the Influence ot Stephen
Gardiner , bishop ot Wincnestor , ho was exe
cuted on the 22d ot August , having been
allowed twenty-four bourn respite to hear
masR. after the date iQl hU execution had
been fixed on the 21st.
In carving his design upon the walls he
was thoughtful enough to remember all his
four brothers- . Under a bear nnd lion , sup
porting a staff , Is the name John Dudley ,
and surrounding them Is a wreath of roses
for Ambrose , acorns for Itobert , gllly flowers
( or Outtdford , and honeysuckles for Henry ,
At the bottom ot all are four lines , as fol
lows :
"Youe that these brasta do wet behold and
EC ,
May demo ftltlie ease therefore hero may
they bo with , borders wherein
Pour brothers' names who list to scrchc
the ground. "
The third line Is defective , but Mr. Lotties ,
who.wrote the authorized guide to the tower ,
thinks perhaps It should read , "With borders
wherein eke there may be found. "
During the administration of Cromwell ,
eorge Vllllers , second duke ot Buckingham ,
ho married the daughter of Sir Thomas
Fairfax , at which Cromwell wns much In
cused , was/ / committed to the tower for that
ery act. He had been absent from Eng-
oml for a long Interval , but secretly re-
urncd , was captured and Imprisoned. He
tns one of the handsomest men of hla day ,
nit was the possessor of a most unenviable
harnctcr , and so was disliked by almost all
, vlio knew htm. At the restoration hei was
inado master ot the horse and became a
Tiembor of the privy council , but he was so
'ond of Intrigue that he was always In
rouble and finally ended by being returned
: o the tower. But King Charles soon rc-
itored him to liberty ami his titles. Ills
cseons ot prison life did htm very little good ,
! io-\ve\er \ , and his actions were , If anything ,
nore disreputable after regaining his liberty
han before. Pope's description of this man
peaks of his final Illness , beginning "In the
\orsl Inn's worst room. " His existence dur-
ng his last hours was most pathetic. At
his death his titles bccamo extinct , as he
left no children Guy Fawkes and his ac
complices wera Imprisoned In this room dur-
"ng their trial and pre\ foils to their execu-
Queen Anne Boleyn , of whom there has
been so much , written , spent a portion of
licr life In this room previous to her execu-
lon , which waa brought about"by that \lllaln
lenry VIII. She uas the second wife of
lenry. Kducated In Trance she returned
to England and became a maid of honor to
Queen Kutherlne of Arragon In 1527. In
' 532 she was created marchioness of Pembroke
at Windsor castle. The ceremony was \ery
extensive , owing to the Interest of Henry
VIII. , who married her In 1533. She was
crowned que.n during the same year. After
the ceremonies wcro finished the king and
queen went to live at Hampton court , where
the time was spent In festivities , and Sir
Thomas Moore , one of the greatest scholars
of the ago , who was at the time ImprlsoiiPd
In the tower , hearing * of the feasting and
revelry , remarked : "Alas , It pltleth me to
think Into what miseryipoor soul , she wll
shortly come. These dances of hers -wll
prove such dunces that , she will spurn our
heads oft like foot balls , but It will not belong
long until her head will dance the like
dance. " '
During a fete one evening the handksr
chief ot the mieen fell from the balcony Into
the court below , a slgn.-as Henry chose to

had tired of her by this tlmo and on this
slight pretext called' a council In "West
minster , where the ijUeen and several others convicted and thortly afterward wer
arrested and thrown Into the tower.
In vain she appealed to the king for mercy ,
all of her pleas were answered with cold
disbelief. Shortly afterward \\nsbroughi
to trial , charged with adultery , and con
d.niited to die.
On the 19th of May she was conducted to

We are Indebted to Disraeli for a legend
connected with her death , which , 'I ' consider
very pathetic. She would not allow her ejes
to be bandaged , preferring to see the llplr
ot day as long as possible. When the execu
tloner ( who hod been Imported from Calais
as an expert ) approached her ehe would casi
her e > es up at him with EO pathetic an ex
presslon as to unnerve him , and ho made
three Ineffectual attempts to strike the blow ,
but failed each time. 1'lna ly It was decided
to resort to a stratagem. The executioner
removed his shoes and approached from the
left , while n person wearing shoes approached
from the right. The queen's attention was
attracted In this direction , and the execu
tloner was thus enabled to strike the fata
blow , and so ended the life of themes
beautiful woman of her time.
The walls of the Beachamp tower bear the
word "lane" In two different places. It Is
supposed that these Inscriptions refer to the
Lady Jane Grey , and It Is thought they were
Inscribed by her husband , Lord Gulldford
Dudley , while he was a prisoner In the tower
but this Is not definitely known.
The Inscriptions In this tower commence
near the doorway , the llrst of which Is .
of Walter Paslcw , and Is dated 1GG9 and
1570. This person was not otherwise famous

NEW YORK , Oct. 14. Henry Clews , head
ot the banking house ot Henry Clews & Co. ,
writes of the situation In Wall street :
"Tho stock market as yet showsno signs
ot violent change cither for better or worse ,
notwithstanding the 'professionals' arc likely
to remain In control , In the absence of fresh
features calculated to attract a substantial
demand from the public. The Industrial
properties continue to absorb more than their
share of attention , and still form the dis
turbing clement In the market. Inasmuch
as they are destroyers of confidence , and are
causing other securities to suffer unneces
sarily and without special reason , There are
but few unfavorable situations , however , out
of which ( to not coino some good result , and
this one Is not likely to bo nn exception ,
as In the end It will tend toward n revulsion
of feeling which will place the Industrials
'n the background , nnd speculativefnvorlt -
sm will once more be with the peed rail
road stocks. The movement has been
'woiked' for nearly all It Is worth In con-
icctlon with the former class of securities ,
and the tremendous looses which outsiders
have suffered as a result of Insiders' inanlp-
-ilatlon are undoubtedly going to prove n
.csson not easily forgotten , nnd one which
iv III naturally turn the current of ppecula-
Jon away from manipulated stocks and to-
ivards securities the movements ot which

he machinations of a few men. The sltun-
lon of the rallroadH Is encouraging ns far
as the outlook Is concerned , and although
their present condition Is not all that could
lie desired or may be expected later on , It
H at least n guarantee of better things to'
come ; nnd earnings tire good when the gen
eral condition of business throughout the
country Is considered. It must be remem
bered that railroad returns now are being
compared with those of n. particularly pios-
perous period , when the bulk of the World's
fair business was being done When the-j
are compired with the ordinary tialllc re
turns the showing Is not so poor after nil ,
nnd with the habits of economy now being
so well learned the propped for n marked
Improvement In net receipts Is good when
the general business situation begins to
mend with more rapidity , as soon It will.
The 'granger' stocks have suffered for n
long time on the prospect of a small corn
crop this year , but this Idea , has undoubt
edly been cairled too far , ns present Indica
tions certainly point to the prospect of con
siderably larger yield than nt first expected
The Washington ngiloultuntl report. Issued
on the 10th lust. , shows that wheat and
corn Increased over their estimate of last
month , and Information irom private
sources from almost eveiy direction Is to
the effect that the crops this year are much
undetestlmatcd bv the government. All
these form another reason why an Improve
ment may be looked for later on , for when
a Titock or class of stocks Is unduly de-
presied n reaction Is natural when the
cause for the depression Is removed or dls
covered to be principally the result of eiror
It has always been a pinctlcal Impossibility
to Induce the public to buy stocks when
they are away down , but after the range
of prices has advanced to a considerable
extent outsiders begin to buy. The tilin
to do Is to put chape while It can be done
at low prices and before a KIowing de
mand has advanced values. This ought to
be n good time to buy properties which
enjoy confidence , with the Idea of putting
them away and holdlni : them for a few
montlm at least , bv which time the pi Ices
for nil good securities will In all prcbibllllv
reach n much higher level. London , though
for some time past having shown a much
more marked degree oC confidence In Amer

abroad for our grain and cotton. The
fctrenfith In th.e steillnjr exchange market
has naturally entered Into the situation tea
a ceitaln extent as an unfavorable factor ,
but with the present superabundance of
money and low rates therefor It should
cause no uneasiness. The bears , however ,
are disposed to make the most of It to de
press prices : their raids will furnish excel
lent opportunities to pick up cheap stock
for quick nnd profitable tuins , and thereby
be a blessing In disguise for those who
avail of such opportunities. "
