Yale Men were surprised; Stagg's team plays the 'varsity eleven a good game of football. After the second day of the long-looked-forward-to midwinter meeting of the Staten Island Athletic Club at Madison Square Garden, the event must be recorded as a failure. This is primarily due to the fact that too much was attempted. The management made a great mistake in trying to combine track and light field athletics and heavy field games, such as football and lacrosse, in a single programme. There were about two thousand persons in the Garden last week. The place was as cold as a barn, and this made it harder to bear the delay that for some unknown reason was made in starting the sports. Even Cappa’s excellent band played as though the cold has settled in the instruments. When the games were finally started they dragged tediously for an hours and a half through the trial heats of running and walking races, the finals of which it was announced would be run after the football game. The bicycle race, two miles, was postponed until to-day. At 10 o’clock, when the lacrosse teams of the Staten Island Athletic Club, the champions, and of the Manhattan Athletic Club came into the big arena, the spectators began to hope that they would get something for their money. They were not mistaken, for the game was as spirited one, which resulted in a victory for the Staten Islanders on account of their superior team work. The running of King of the Staten Islands was the nature of the game. C. C. Miller of the Staten Islands threw the first goal, almost the entire length of the Garden. It was a magnificent play. King threw the second goal for Staten Island and Maharg the third. Just before time was called Horace Thompson made a beautiful throw through goal for the Manhattans. The football game was even more interesting. On the Yale team were five of the 'Varsity eleven--Hartwlel, Heffelfinger, Lewis, Williams, and B. Morrison. opposed to the Yale men was the eleven that Stagg, Yale's old baseball pitcher, has organized at his Christian AsAssociation
