The success of our lacrosse team at Princeton yesterday certainly deserves more favorable comment than the college is accustomed to give to them. They won the flags over the University of New York, Princeton and Columbia last fall, and again hold the championship this season. By faithful training and systematic daily practice our team has forced its own way in spite of the sneers and satire of the college papers last fall, and are now proving to us how far we were in the wrong. The lacrosse men have never, so far as we know, solicited subscriptions, and have never received any help except a comparatively small sum towards defraying their expenses on the present trip. It is rather surprising to most persons to be visited by cricket men for money, but it would not be so much out of place if the lacrosse men were to try the same plan. We feel sure that quite a number of persons would gladly help them financially, but at any rate they may expect in the future a better reception and much less ridicule.
