After the game, the Atlantics returned to their hotel, and had a social time with their Syracuse friends, and at 12:20 took the train for Rochester, where they arrived at 2, A.M., after a rather exciting trip; for shortly after their departure from Syracuse some roughs, headed by a big bully, attempted to stop the express-train to get out at a way-station, and, insulting the conductor, the latter called upon the club for assistance, and if ever a party of drunken bullies found themselves in hot water, these blackguards did; Mike Henry polishing off the big fellow with a couple of his terrible blows, while the others soon found it necessary to apologize, and glad were they to get off at the first station the train stopped at. Whether their friends would know them when they got home or not, is uncertain, for they did not present a very comely appearance, being rather red in the face.
