There was not quite the interest this year in the Micbigan-Miunesota game chat there was last year in the MichiganCornell ganie, for the reason that it was a foregone couolusiou that Michigan wonld defeat Minnesota, while, too, the hackers of Michigan aro now more interesteci in playiug against the east than they are the west, for the simple fact that theii fame is listablished west and it is yet to be established in the east. Notwithstauding, alarge crowdsaw the game last Saturday in Detroit, and stood in the mud threc hours to wituess ciefeat administered to the Millers. There were two trains iuto Detroit to carry the merry crowd of fellows, one at 10:30 o'clock and the other at noon. The flrst train load took possession of Detroit, and Woodward avenue was immediately surreudered to the chrysanthemnm decked, yellow and blue festooued students. The U. of M. yell wa given with a vengeance and tbo fellows soon had possessioa of the Rnssell house. The two teams were late in getting upon the grouuda. Minnesota kioked off and Bloomiugston carried the ball 2.r. yard line. Auother short gaiu was made and the ball went to Michigan on a fumble. Senter soon after made a gain of 40 yards. The ball changed sides for holding afterwards and was returnod to Michigan for the same reason. The first touch - down was made by HaJl in fourteen minutes from the time play was called Bloomingston's foot slipped and he missed goal. The nest score was made in nineteen minutes, after quite an amonnt of puntiDg on both sides. Goal was kioked. In the next halt ierbert went over the line for a touch down in seven minutes. Pnuting was freely indulged in the last half, and the ' fourtb touch down was made by Ferbert iu fifteen minutes. Goal was kicked and that was the last of the scoring, he result being 20 to 0 in favor of Michigan. Minnesota's interfereuce was weak and their players gave up the game as soon as it was beguu. Their men believe Michigan has the winning team of the country, let alone the west. The game was attended by a large n amber of townspeople as woll as students.
