Mr. Lathrop yesterday received official notice that the Technology games, advertised for next Saturday, would not take place. The Boston aldermen refused to grant a license for sparring and wrestling, although a petition was sent to them as soon as it was learned that there might be any difficulty in procuring a license. Among the Harvard men entered for the games, Fearing was considered a sure winner of the high jump, Shea of putting the shot, and Shead of the fence jumping. A good many men were deterred from entering the Yale games by the prospect of competing at Technology, and the refusal of the aldermen to grant a license to hold the games was particularly unfortunate for this reason.
