Their Owu Account of H Run of Hard Luck, Whlfih Began with Goodman Ex- tended Clear Down the Line Coining Home ait Honpltnl "We are nine crushed wan the'Tloleful greeting with which Quinton, of the Trenton Hall Crub, received a TIMKS re- porter at the Clinton Avemie'House this morn- ing. The players, wlio were seated togetlier, and nursing their wounds. looked crestfallen enough. They waited for the late train last night to -Trenton, and retired immediately ou reaching the hotel. The general opinion among them is that they have hard luek. Rain interfered with two of the games which they were most likely to win, and in addition the club was crippledlrom the start. Goodman opened the hospital on Mon- day night by exhibiting an incipient felon on the small finger of Vfia right hand. He could not field lit ones, as players had to be changed from their posi- in order to fill Goodman's vacated first base. Dwyer tried the base, bnt he never pre- tended to be a first baseman, and failed. Then Burke tried it, and his experience was scarcely any more gratifying. Cronin next showed a sore finger and had to leave second. Indeed there was scarcely a player this morning whj> was not found to be crippled in some way. Quinton's hands, as well as Burke's, are bruised, Dwyer has the "chilly" Harkjns is suffering with a sore finger, and Goodman still nursing his felon. CAUSE OF THE DEFEATS. Ear'ne'd Merritt 6.

A special from- Princeton says l- The first championship game between Princeton and Harvard came off here jesterday aud piovt-d an exciting contest. The feature of the game was Moffett's excellent pitching, which the visitors found themselves unable to hit. Princeton out-batted Harvard from the start, while Harvard out-fielded Princeton. The latter had numerous errors, which attrib- uted by the students to a lack of practice, ne- cessitated by the prohibition of the Faculty to play with professionals. This prohibition is new removed. The, pitching and catching of both-teams were excellent, and the'difficult catches made by Clark, of Princeton, and Cooledge. of Harvard, were loudly applauded. Score by innings: 1- 2 :J 4 5.

The contest for the Inter-State we received, but I 'simply think, we have not the material to win. We have no eatehei iu condition, and our pitchers were also used up. In this extremity, yesterday lighted upou Kittenbonsp, who done sjond vrorl; for Philadelphia auiajcur clubs, and put him against the Merritte.

Rad he said, "followed us all through the tour. Our players were- Crippled .to begin with. Then the weather was against us. I think we could have won at Pottsville, but the rain interfered. Then, again, at Reading, it was anybody's game when the rain began. Every one believed we would have won. At Harrisburg, to tell you the truth, we were afraid to play. Scbappart, the pitcher, struck seven of our men early in the game. It is an old trick of his, and when we remonstrated ho oaid he'd .hit uo We got no ohow there at sill. pitching th? easiest we met. but were ah aid to aUtud up to the plate.
