Judges Blunder in Placing Niblick
Second in Opening Race.
Coy Maid's brilliant victory in the opening han
dicap at Aqueduct yesterday was outstandingly
tr.e feature of the day's racing. Under adverse
«HKM conditions and discouraging circumstances
*h# fought her way to the front in the last fur
long with the rarest courage and won on the post
fcr a head. It was her fifth consecutive victory in
six starts, end while she has no classlo stakes to
her credit the must take a high place among the
two-year-oia fillies of the year. So consistent has
ehe been, and withal so Er«-ci!y. honest and game,
that ■*• has earned a warm place in the hearts or
racing folk. Yesterday she beat some good two-year
ol4i and raced five furlongs over a dead track in
the fast time of 0.59 4-5 seconds.
Coy ilaid took up 1:5 pounds and conceded 14
l»cur.d£ to back. -winner of the Great Trial Stakes;
jr. to Niblick. $ to Juvenagra, 8 to Escutcheon and
;: ■ D to £3 pounds to the others. She was ihree c
four ■ afOs back In tht early part of the rare, while
Esrxter.ecn ard Flyback were forcing the pace.
At me last furlong pole .he clos=e>j resolutely, and.
la epite of being bumped and crowded by the tiring
Es-: -tehee r, she fought on, and, taking- issue with
Flyback lr. the last fifty yarcs, beat him. a head
cr. the iSSt. She was at i to 1 and 5 to 1 In the bet
ter the Thomas entry, Flyback and Niblick, being
i strong favorite at 11 to 10.
Muca ur.iavorabie comment was caused in this
race by the judges placing Niblick Instead of Fly
back second. A.< a matter of faci. Niblick finished
fourth. 1-ea.ten by Escutcheon. While Klblick and
tljlMtlt were co-pied in the straight betting, sep
arate prices wen laid against them for the place,

Baltimore, Nov. 10.— Form players had their In
ning at Pimlico to-day. Four favorites and two
strongly played second choices won over a track
fairly good in spite of a slight rain that reduced
the attendance. The seventeen books continued to
do a thriving business. In the steeplechase Wool
gatherer, the favorite, outran Eophone on the flat
winning handily by an easy two lengths. Bravery s
run in the hfth rare was a feature. Starting a

TWO GUESTS AT MEADOW BROOK TEA.
Fanners Fail to Respond to Invitations of
Mr. Collier, M. F. H.
At a tea »rlven last we<=k by the Meadow
Brook Hunt Club for th<» farmers living around
Roslyn, Wheatley Hills. Locust Valley and Jericho.
only two of the Invited guests arrived, the others
evidently preferring their own homes to the pol
tehed floors and liveried servants of the club. Mr.
Collier hag become very popular among the farmers
of Nassau County Pince succeeding Foxhall P.
Keene as Master of Hounds. Tha farmers over
whose iar.ds the club has hunted this autumn and
whose fences and crops have been Injured have
received such large sums for the loss sustained
that they are Inclined to see the eur.ny eide of
fox hunting. To mak« them all the more, cheerful
a tea at the hunt club was planned for them and
their wives, but when the appointed hour arrived
only one farmer and his wifu came. The other
wives were apparently unabla to persuade the'r
husbands to accompany them.
Mr. Collier, It 1s announced, will give encyclo
paedias and books to all the schools in the town
ships of Oyster Bay an-i North Hemp?tead The
Club will now probably give a few rac« 3 and an
outdoor luncheon to do what the tea failed to ac
complish.
INCREASED INTEREST IN SKATING?*
That skating will be more popular this winter
In this city than it has for a number of years can
be realized from the announcement that well
known people have promised to take more than a
languid Interest In the .sport at the St. Nicholas
Rink. The attendance of well known people will
probably not be large next week, owing to the
Horse Show. Mr*. John Jacob Actor and the
Misses Burden are amonj; those that are said to
nave taken an Interest in reviving the recreation
-vi.ss Gladys Vanderbilt. who returns home with
ncr mother soon from Europe, will probably he a
member of the younger class at the rink.

NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 11. 1004.
XFJV FULLBACK FOB YALE.
Leavenicorth to Fill the Place —
OuslcJ/ at Right Half.
far TELEGRAPH TO THE TRIBUNE.I
New-Haven, Conn.. Nov. 10.— The last open prac
tica at i'ale Field to-day before the Princeton game
Proved that Yale does not Intend to play any more
cripples than necessary. The result of this decision
and of the week's secret practice showed In the
choice of Leavenworth for fullback In place of
Owsley, McCoy or Flinn. Leavenworth Is a Junior
In "Sheff." who played on his freshman team, and
who lost his chance for the "varsity last season
through injury. He had Just been developed Into
the 'varsity buck Held, where he played right half
back in the Brown game. He weighs 161 pounds. Is
fast and aggressive, and Is a strong defensive
player. His eleventh hour choice was a great sur
prise to the undergraduates.
Another important change was the placing of
Owsley, fullback, at right half. In place of S. F. B.
Morse, who has held that position all the eeason.
Morse has been laid up with injuries for a week,
and lon his hold on 'varsity halfback for that rea
son. He will, however, get into part of the Prince
ton game. Unless more shifts are made, the Yale
back field will meet Princeton as follows: Hoyt.
left halfback; Owsley and Morse, right halfback.
and Leavtnw-orth, fullback.
This afternoon the "varsity went through secret
signal practice, and when, the large undergraduate
body was let in the regular men were sent home,
-nevlin. playing left end for the first time this
week, hopped en one leg through the practice. His
condition will not keep him out of Saturday's game.
Bloomer was at left tackle, but it is possible that
Klnson will take his place. The series of the
rv»i e u. ho 11 "'" 8 rolled up at Yale has prac-
Prfnceton™om« e t th * team two da> ' 8 before the
•«£££ afternoon the first and second set of sub

gin at Yale Field again until next Wednesday
v.; few days ago Yal « was certain of bringing
home the Tiger skin. Just now. with the condition
of several of .he best Yale men up in the air. there
la no Fuch composure. Very clever students of tn e
1 ale game ere inclined to see a Princeton victory
looming up over the New-Jersey horizon. Other
roiiowers of the team expect to see The Yale crip
ples jog back into shape by Saturday, and be in
thtir prime for the game. If this is true Yale ex
pects to win. As far as a general observer of the
xaie team can see it the Saturday game is sjoir.g
iSi^SE^?^* Very J ari?ely on this question of physi
cal condition New-Yorkers are wont to smile at
£i«. . a ». V- ck ' tale that comes from those
«m n » ale team , *" ach year before the final
games. But it is no fairy story this year. The
Columbia and Brown games, plus heavy and hard
practice work this last week, have worn down in
pounds, vigor and spunk a number of Yale's kev
etone Pla>^rs. With Shevlin. Owsley. Morse. Rock
we'l and Bloomer in poor physical condition, Yale
is not looking forward to any walkover Saturday
TIGER LIKE HOLDS SCRUB.
'Varsity Stops Every Attack—
Fumbling Still Continues.
Princeton, N. J.. Nov. 10 (Special).— Contrary to
the expectations of the student body, the Tigers
had open practice this afternoon instead of work-
Ing behind closed gates, as announced. The prac
tice consisted mainly of signal work, the team
spending considerable time on the fined points ar.rt
the technique of th© game, and getting their for
mations down like clockwork. The practice was
marred by some bad fumbling in the backfield and
the slowness of the team in recovering the ball
The practice was finished by a short lin«-up
against the scrub. The latter was given tha ball
in the centre of the field, but the 'varsity defence
again proved impregnable, the scrub being unable
to gain their distance once.
To-night there was a mass meeting" of the stu
dents, and songs and cheers were practised Ed
wards. Holt and Bannard. the coaches, and Captain
t uu.ke each gave a stirring talk to the undergrad
uates. A report that has caused no little indigna
tion among the authorities here was published in
a Trenton newspaper to-day to the effect that the
stands which have been erected for the Yale game
were unsafe, and that they had been condemned
Dy a competent Inspector. To-day Engineer Clarke
of the Philadelphia Bureau of Inspection, after a
thorough examination, pronounced the stands Nab
solutely safe in every particular. Athletic Director
wJSSi (jr ti er i l Trea s u rer Murray, and Foster, the
builder ot the stands, declared the report to be
entirely without foundation.
MORLEY SAYS STANGLAND MAY PLAY.
Columbia Men Doubt It, Though — Hard
Practice for Cornell Game.
Although Columbia's football eleven expects a
hard game -with Cornell In Its last game of the sea
son at American League Park to-morrow after
noon, the Mcrningside men went through stiff
practice at the grounds yesterday. Captain Stang
land watched the practice from the side lines. He
did not appear to be in good physical condition
and gTave doubt is expressed as to the possibility
of his playing against the Ithacant. Morley raid
last night, though, that ho thought he would be
able to p'.ay at least part of the game. Stangland's

football again this season. His expected absence
will materially weaken the Columbia right wing.

their official annual report of the races of the last
season. The schooners, sloops and yawls of the
club sailed - fourteen races, six on the annual
cruise.
There were three days of racing for the motor
boats, for which a special committee was appoint

an hour.
In th first special open race, on July J. the win
ners were the Wasaka. the Opitsah V. and the Bat.
The Dorel, the Medric and the Bat were the win
ners in the second race on July 4. both being sailed
off Marblehead. The 331-mile ocean race from New-
York to Marblehead was -won by the schooner
Lasca. in class B; by the schooner Hope Leslie, in
class E, and by the sloop Cossack, in class L. The
schooner Undercliff won In the special handicap
class. The Lasca'a time was 71:2^ ::s.

INTERCLASS GAMES AT CITY COLLEGE
Junior Class Takes Point — Relay-
Runners Stop Too Soon.
Captain Feildtng of the track team of the City
College conducted yesterday the first of a series
of class games, which it Is hoped will bring out
more material for the "varsity squad to meet
6warthmore and Trinity In the dual meets of May.
The team is now especially strong: In the middle
distance and field contests, but rather weak In the
sprints. Honadsc, Frank and Finkelsteln have all
beaten 2:10 in the half and the latter two can do
a mlie In under 450. Captain Felldlng and "Man
nle" Gold can both easily cover nineteen feet In
the broad jump, and the f>>rrr>.»r can go 5 feet 5
inches in the high Jump.
The features of the games yesterday were the
finishes of the 880 and mile. In the half mile Engel
and F!nkelsteln finished inches apart for second
place, after fighting from th<* very start. In the
mile Frank (scratch) won from Larkin, "''«?. (SB
yards), by about five feet, in the excellent time
of 4.51.
President Flnley of the college attended the
games, as did many of the faculty. After th<* resr
ular contests an impromptu class relay was run
off— first and '06 ("ernnrt. Frank, "W, running
last, picked up Ennis, 'OS, Just a few feet from the
tape, and although there was yet a lap to go. both
stopped, thinking they had finished. The race was
not allowed and no counts given: '06 won the point
trophy, with 26 points; '05 second with 2?, and Hd
third, with 22.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BATTLESHIP.
In March. 1599, Congress appropriate* money for
th.cc seagoing: coastline battleships carrying the
heaviest armor and most powerful armament for
vessels of their class, and provided for two more
by the act of June T. 1300.
Of the five vessels appropriated for. three wers
required to be sheathed and coppered, and two
without *h*athing: immediately after being con
tracts for. however, the Navy Department took
this question under consideration, and decided to
omit all outside sheathing and coppering, so that
each v.. of th* class of which the New-Jersey
is one is now a. counterpart cf the other, except
for minor modifications incident to construction.
The general dimensions and chief characteristics
of these vessels are:

The New-Jersey was built for a speed of at least
nineteen knots. The warship will be propelled at
this high speed for a battleship by twin screws

guns forty-five calibres in length, which will be
earned on this vessel, four will be mounted by
pairs in turrets, superposed upon the 12-inch tur
rets aoove mentioned, and four in two br-a<!side
turrets, slightly forward of amidships. ttUßta »
There will be a broadside battery on the gun

eight l-pounders. heavy automatic; two 3n-cal!br«»
machine guns and six .30-calibre Colt automatic
guns, all mounted In commanding positions and
having large areas of fire.
To make the warships defensive qualities pro
portionately great, she is provided with a com
*}i waterline belt of armor, eight feet in width
amidships, eleven Inches thick at the top and eight
Inches at the bottom, tapering: to a uniform thick
ness of four inches at the ends of the vessel She
also has a casemate armored belt extending over

Disclosures About Professor Lang

fFR THE TRIBUNE ECREAr.]
Washlngtoao, Nov. 10.— Important disclosures re
p;ir>ii:-:5 the Larsrley aerodrome, or, «s it was pop
ularly known, the Buzzard, which waa unsuccess
fu'ily tried a year n^o, are made in the annual
report of the Army Board of Ordnance and Forti
fication*.
The report indicates that th* principle utilized
by the secretary of the Smithsonian Institution
for accomplishing mechanical flight was never
t-tfted, that the machine itself was not conclusively
shown to be a failure, but, 03 the contrary, the
only defect so far demonstrated was confined to
th* auxiliary launching apparatus. The report.
which contains essential facts not before In poa
stssion of scientific men generally or the public,
makes the following statement on the subject:
Early In the year IS3S a board composed of officers
of ins army and navy was appointed to examine
the, models and principles of the aerodrome devised
by Dr. B. P. La&fler, secretary of me Smithsonian i
Institution, ami to report whether or not. in its !
opinion, a larsa machine of thi? Osign couid b« I
built, and. if so, whether it would be of araedcal !
v.-iluc. '1 he report of this toard was referred to ;
I th« Board of Ordnance and Fortifications f-->r ac- ■
! tion, and Dr. Lsir.giey was invited to appear before j
the board and further explain th-j proposed con- j
struction.
In view of the great utility of such a device.
if a practical success, the board, on November &, i
i^^s. made a:. allotment of $—>. '*/.• for the construe- '
tlon, development and teat of an aerodrome to be 1
made under the direction of Dr. Langley, with th© !
understanding That an additional allotment of the ;
HUM amount would be ma later, itn December >
IS. 18S3, the additional allotment of 125,000 was madv. '
The construction of the rr.aclino was delayed by
Dr. LMknglcy'a ir ability to procure a suituMe motor, !
which he was finally obliged to design. The aero- ;
iliurae was completed about July IS, UOB, and prep
arations for its test were made at a point in tha
i\>ioma<: River, about tarty miles below Washing
ton. Preliminary arrangements having been com
! pieu-d and tests made of a quarter »lze model. th»
flrs-t attempt at actual rtijiht with th*- man carrying
aerodrome was made on October 7, IWXi.
On this occasion th A re were present on beh.ilf of
the board Major M. M. Macoml . artillen corps,
ai..l G. H. Powell, clerk of the board, Major Ma- ;
comb, in his report to the board, stats that "the j
trial was unsuccessful because the front guy post
caught In Its support on the launching car, an.l
was not rdOSSOtf in time to flvp frre- -1-»:ht. as was
intended. bi;t. ««n the contrary, caused the front
i of the machine to be dragged downward, beadias :
I the guy pest and making tho machine plunge Into
the water about flrty yards in front of the house
boat."
Thin accident made necessary th» removal of th* !
houseboat to Wa^hineton for the mure conver.imt
repair of damages. The repairs having been com
pleted, on December 8. 1903, another attempt at a j
trial was made, this time at the Junction of the i
Anacostia a.id Potomac rivers. General W. F. .
Randolph and Major Macornb. men:'3*rs of the i
board, and Mr Powell were present. M.i.ior Ma
comb reported an follows: "Th* laur.ching car was |
released at 4:43 p. m. . . . Th" car iras set in ;
motion and tho propellers revolved rapidly, the
engine working perfectly, but there waa something '
wrong with thj launching. T). rear kuv post
seemed to drag, bringing the rudder d wn on the
launching ways, and a erashinsr. rending mj-ind.
followd by the collapse of the rear wir.irs. show»^l
that the machine had t-een wrecked In the launch
int-_. how It was iinpo«»ibl<« for me to see."
March 3. 1804. the board stated that it was not ;
"prepared to make an additional allotment at this p
tin»« lor continuing the work." whereupon Dr. •
Langley requested that arrangements be made for .
a rtisuributicn of the TuTnjnw material p-ocured ,
Jointly from the funds allotted by the board and ;
by the Smithsonian Institution. Dr. I.angiey was
informed that all of the material would be l**t In ]
his possession and available for any future worK
that he might be able to carry on in connection ■
with the problem of mechanical fi'.ght.
