On Saturday night qt the 1'rlnress'
rink, the much-tnlked-of roller Mar
Jllion was run, or skated, off. Joe
Forrest, as was expected, won easily,
and that after losing seven laps
through stopping (or some reason
best known to himself. His skates
seemed to bother him nnd he pulled
off the trnck twice. However, IiIb
rests mndo the race a little more In
teresttug thnn It-he had kept going
without a stop.
Forrest, cut -"out tbe twenty-six
wiles Ih 1 hour 57 minutes 46 sec
onds, tthd his nearest opponent, lief-
ford, finished 5 minutes 36 seconds
later. The third man was Alfred
lldhtlst, who was only 25 seconds be
hind Hefford. Markhnm got Into
fourth place, and he took 22 seconds
longer than Uaptlst.
With Forrest out of the race there
would have been va stashing finish
for first place between Hefford, Uap
tlst and Markham. Forrest was too
fast for the bunch, nnd some Idea af
how good he Is can be obtained by
considering the fact that he allowed
Hefford to get seven laps on htm and
then won by a huge margin.
The winner arnged 4 minutes 31
seconds to the mile, and that Ib good
considering, tho small course raced
upon. Twenty laps to the mile
means a lot of slowing up at cornets,
nnd on n larger rink Forrest would
probably heat the, figures he put up
on Saturday night.
Hefford-or Forrest led all the way,
nnd after the latter got in the lead,
when he resumed skating, he was
never again headed.
Forrest adopted the real profes
sional stoop, nnd kept up a great
pate right through the race. He
skated wide all tho time, and must
have covered a lot more ground than
the rest of the men, who kept close
to the ropes.
Hefford, ls,n most graceful skater,
but his style' Is hardly suited for n
long-distance race. He appears to
be an Ice Bknter, and should bo a
fast man on the frozen stuff. He
had several falls during the race,
and at the finish was very leg-weary,
Forrest also was tired, and he had
causo to be after keeping up such
n pace for the Marathon distance,
His spurts of speed at times were
very fast, and the way he caught up

Yards Record Tied,
On Saturday afternoon tho V. M,
pv A, record-breaking trnck, meet
was pulled off at the llojs Field, and
although oi.ly one record went by
the boards. Hill Itlee proved himself
to he a great runner.
In the first race of the da) the
100-ynrd sprint Hill equaled the
former record and did the illftanc'e
lii to l-S seconds. He would have
surely beaten the figures only that
the two bo) h who were put In the
race to pa e him Interfered a little
with the champion as lie got to with
in ten jnrdn of the tape. Itosa and
McOuIre were running on eltherxldo
of llice, and they were so Intent on
making good time to the finishing
line thut they closed In on him and
forced him to lose a stride when get
ting between them. Itlee .would
have done ten seconds flat, only for
the Jostling, and It was Indeed hnrd
luck for him to be blocked as he was.
Itlee gave b ith his opponents ten
nrds start, and If they had only run
wide and let tho scratch man
through, the record for the Islands
would have gone for sure.
The half-mile run was n good
race, too, and the attempt by Mc
Candless to beat the half-mile rec
ord, although not successful, was a
good one. Wlthlngton started with
the High S:hool boy, and the first
quarter mile was cut out In 1 mln.
C sees. It looked as if the runners
would get lnslae the record It they
could quicken up the pace In the sec
ond lnp. However, the wind Inter
fered u lot with the men and they
had to force their way through a
r(I stiff breeze us they turned the
Walklkl corner of the track.
McCandless splinted as well ns he
could In the IiibI hundred )nrds, but
he crossed the line In 3 mlns. 11 ,-lu
sees., Just 3 3-10 sees, outside the
lecord. Wlthlngton's time'' was i
mlns. 12 4-5 sees, und ho wns close
behind M'Candless. .
With two failures to beat existing
records facing them, the officials of
the track meet did not feel too san
guine about any of the old figures
being beaten. The high wind seem
ed Lertnln to stop uny record-breaking,
and everybody almost gave up
However, In the 220 yards. Rice
once more put up a beautiful run,
and, giving Mcdulte and Rosa twenty-live
ards start, endeavored to
overtake them and at the Bame time
beat the record. The chnmplon put
up n great try, hut could not quite
get up to the leaders. Rosa finished
first, with McOuIre second and Rice
third. Itke'i time wns 2.1 7-10 sees,
for the dUt Alice, and another record
romalncd unbroken. The best pre
vious llguies were 23 2-5 sees.
Tho attempt on tho mllo figures'
was made by Norton and Wlthlng
ton, aud at first it looked as It thel., . .
record woiild be broken. The nuar-'Aaimllon Sc- 10c-i 1Sc-
ter ml'e was cut out In 1 mln. al.---;,-.,, mm mwwtww'
sees.; the half mile was covered In-HMDIsH I HFATPD
2 mlns. 20 sees.: the three-auarters
In 3 mlns. 46 sees, nnd the full dis
tance In C mlns. 8 1-5 sees. The rec
ord for the distance Is 4 mlns. C8
sees , and It was not In much dnuger
of being 'broken. '
Then the race of tbe day camo
up, and )t was the 440 yards, In
which John Curey and William Rice
started. The men got off with the
crack of the pistol, and they both
reached their top speed In a short
distance. It was seen that It was
going to be touch and go with the
record before 200 yards were cover
ed, und the two young peds certainly
got over the ground In wonderful
At the half-way mark Carey was
leading by a yard, and people began
to think that Carey was going to
win. When within forty arda of
the finish, Carey was still ahead and
going strong. His supporters were
nearly crazy with excitement, but
the Rice fui.a neer doubted the abil
ity of their pian to win out.
The finish was most exciting, as
Rice caught Carey In the lust ten
lards and flashed over tho line a
winner by two yards. Rice's ttmt
was S3 1-5 sees, and Carej's S3 2-a
sees. Doth men got Inside the old
record of 64 sees., und the run they
put up was a treat to see.
Two boxing exhibitions were given
by four amateurs, and the Louts were
much enJo)ed by tho spectators,
many of whom bad never Been, any
such contests before. Dr. Hand said
a few words during the bouts and
told of the beauties of clean amateur
There was a fair-sized crowd pres
ent, nud' the vpeilators enjoyed
themselves to the Jlnilt. The only
drawbuck waB the high wind; which
Interfered with the chances of tho
athletes beating records. McCand
less has several times beaten tho
half-mile record In practise, and he
wus heartbroken when ho found that
he had failed to establish new fig'
