either "because of the condltion of thstraek
Bks welgbt arrangement or the way in which the
contest was run.
Tb? Advance i? a weight for age race. and all
th- starters met on even terms. The track. slow

eupposed to be to her advantage. and so far as
the running of the race was ooncerned she not
only received the best that O'Neil is capable of
?giving. but in his anxiety to overeome a defeat
he saw staring him in the lace he actually
?ehouldered his opponent so roughly out of his
way that she probably would have been dis
?iualined had she reached the declding post flrst.
The Columbia Stables Graziallo was the only
other starter. and he was entered after Dolly
Epanker, MIgraine and Gamara had been with
drawn. So unconditionally did the stake seem
to be at Beldame's mercy that tbe ring posted
the prohibitive odds of 3 to 1 on. and the Satur?
day "punters" had to look elsewhere in order
to gratify their sporting tendencies. By a sim
j>le proeess of elimination they arrived at Agile,
the three-year-old son of Sir Dixon?Alpena.
Being a Sir Dixon. hc was likely to go better
Jn the mud and on form he appeared prefera
t.le to Graziallo. He was backed down from 3
to 1 to 13 to 5. Graziallo, because of a supposed
ly fast work, was also supported, and went to
the post at o<> to 1, after openlng ten points
higher. He never was a remote factor in the
It became apparent at once that Martin, who
lode Agile, was going to force the task of mak- J
ir,g the pace on Beldame. and when they passed
the grar.dstand she was lea-ling. but obvlously |

The backstretch she "waited out ln front"?as
the crowd thought?waiting for some to take ex?
ceptlon to her leadership. Before the last
Quarter pole was reached Martin went to work.
a:id at the stretch turn was on even terms with
Beldame. and it was at this point that O'Neil
seemed to try to forestall defeat by deliberately
?houldering the colt out of his course. He so
far succeeded as to throw Agile temporarily out
of his stride. but he gathered himself almost
instantly and had the mare by the ears from
that point on. The colt had to be ridden out
desperately to get his head home in front, but
his triumph was not measured so much by
inches as by the fact that he had outrun and
outgamed the fllly after overcoming dlfficultles
that did not confront her.
The time for the race was 2:20 4-i>?with the
.mile and a quarter run in 2:<?8 and the laat mile
in 1:43 4-5. It will be seen from this fractional
time that the mare could not have been beaten
had she been the sarne old Beldame. There were
many incllned to attribute her defeat to the fact
'that O'Neil apr.eared to choke all the running
out of her, but to others she seemed to be only

finished heads apart. There was a lot of crowd
Ing and jostllng in the race. and lt is doubtfui
whether George C. Bennett. which flnished third,
was not the best one ln the fleld. Queen of
Hearts, however, was the greatest sufferer and
was so severely cut down that it will probably
be some time before she starts again.
The Whitney entry closed odds-on favorites,
although a deal of money was wagered on Se
curity and High Chance, which were coupled
as the Smathers entry. Domlnick gave Secur
ity an excellent ride, but had to do his best to
Rtall off Tlmber, whlch came with a rattle.
The fleld for the Beacon Steeplechase, orig
inally small. with only six overnight entries.
was further reduced by the wlthdrawals of
Diomedary and Arian The Beacon is over the
full steeplechase course. and in spite of the
fact that Hylas. with 147 pounds. carried top
weight. according to the scale, the layers evi
dently thought he could not be beaten. and
he was made an odds-on favorite. going to tha
post at 10 to 7 on. Mr. Colt's Sandhurst was
not liked much by any one save his stable and
the quotatlon against him drlfted back from
S to 5 to 11 to 5. Ilvlas ran kindly enough at
flrst but after one turn of the fleld lt was seen
that he had resorted to hls old trh k of loafing,
and Rav had to use hls whip vlgorously for al?
most one-sixteenth of a mile. The colt went
awav from lt. and soon took command, but it
was'only on sufferance. Finnegan let out a
wrap. and when he caught Hylas the latter
decided it was time for luncheon. Rays efforts
could not persuade him to change hls mind. and
th" indio gelding won with something to spare.

CREWS IN TIME TRIALS.
CORNELL'S FAST WORK.
Columbia in Rare Form, Also?What
the Other Eights Did.
[BT TELEGRAPH TO THE TBIBUNB.l
Poughkeepsie. June 24.-The flnal hard work
of the college crews was done thls morning,
when the attractions of a swlft tide and smooth
water brought out the 'varsity eights, save
those of Pennsylvania and Georgetown. for time
rows over the course. The sensatlon of tho
training season was sprung by Cornell, whose
'varsity eight simply flew over the four miles
and slipped over the line in time, said on the
best. authority. to be under 1. minutes, and
within close call of the record of l_fc5_ 1-5. If
anything were needed to boom the stock
of the Ithacans, thls trial would be enough.
Added to a row of a week ago yesterday of the
Cornellians. in which they flnished ln as fast
time, the showlng makes it certain that Syra?
cuse will have a days work on hand on
Wednesday to win.
Courtney had his crew out at about 11 o'clock
for the trial, and took them up to the regular
start of the race. In the trial of a week ago
yesterday, the men rowed upstream, and Court?
ney was anxious to get a try-out in the cus
tomary way ln which the race is rowed. From
the start the Ithacans showed a rather hlgher
stroke than is usual for Cornell crews.
At the word Ed Foote whipped the pace up
to thlrty-five strokes, and held it so for just long
enough to get the men well warmed to their
work. The long, easy Cornell style began tn
show at about the half-mile mark, and the men
settled down for the four-mile Journey, dolng
thlrty-two to the minute. With Mttle variation
thia clip was maintained until the start of the
flnal mile. The oars men swung together in pret?
ty unison, maintalning the slldea slowly and
easily. The work was practically perfect. with
here and there only a tlny splash from one oar
or another. The flnal mile was signalled by a
shrlll toot from the Cornell launch. and the men
lay down to the work with great willingness.
"Greyhound" Foote. the untirlng, let out link
after link in the paclng chain, and soon had
the men rating through at thlrty-six strokes to
the minute. The Cornell stroke. once called slow,
looked anvthlng but that as the big boat was
snapped ahead, stroke after stroke. The last
quarter mile was a good and perfect refutation
of the oft exnressed saying that "Cornell crews
can rate, but they can't spurt." When the line
was crossed and Courtney snapped his watch
the men did not appear to be anything more
than normally tlred. Courtney was pleased with
the trial. the time of whlch was not gleaned
from him directly. however.
Columbia, too. had a time row in the morn
,ng following after that of Cornell. The New
Torkers did not appear to be moving _? fast.
for their stroke was nowhere near as high. They
rated throughout at something like 2.'and &>
to the mlnute and wound up at about 35. The
trial was an impressive one. but lost some of its
force corning so soon after the great effort that
Cornell had made. It was notlceable, however.
that the work of Columbia was as clean as that
of Cornell. There was almost no splashing and
the men got the slides away with good eontrol.
Tf anything at all was notlceable. it was a ten
dency to clip the stroke every little while?Just a
blt This was by no means a fatal defect. and
as far as excellent style and apparent smooth
MM and speed in the boat goes. the New-York
ers failed by only a little to equal the impres?
slon made by Cornell. The time of the Columbia
boat was not announred. but it ls understood
that it was about as fast as any other trials
that have been ma. e by Columbia.
Syracuse and Wisconsin also took trlps over
the full distance. Ten Eyck waB eager to have
it known that he was not having a time row.
because only rftcently he declared that time
trials were of no value, owlne to differing tkle
and weather conditions at different times. How?
ever. he was seen to pull hls watch out as the
boat approached the flnish and snap it when
the crew reached the end of the journey. The
Syracuse freshmen had a workout over the two
flrst miles of the trial and went like demons. The
Onondagans appear to have a formidable flrst
year eight. but the senior eight, despite its
smoother style, ls not a crew that stands out.
However, the case ls almost the same as that of
last year, when Ten Eyck's lads swept home in
the lead. so that the experts are a bit afrald to
speak thelr mlnds on the subject.

show the crudltles of form traceable to thelr
lack of adequate training. hut whipped the sheil
through the water in satlsfaotory style. all

hopeful. The Badger four took a time row. too,
and seemingly were in the nelghborhood of
eleven minutes for the distance.
Dempsey Vsad the Georgetown crew out on the

Stuart, at No. 4, who hurt hls leg, will have lt
baked thls evening as a means of getting it
into shape for the rega.tta. Mudd. at No. 5, ls

HARVARD'S TARSITY IMPROVING.
So Think the Critics After Watching the
Work?The Freshmen's Time Trial.
Harvard Crew Quarters. Redtop. Conn.. June __?
This afternoon Wray decided to aend the Harvard
freshmen over the course for their last time row
before the rac?. Th- youngsters were towed down
to the railroad brldge in the launch John Harvard.
Here they got into thelr shell and paddled up to
the starting llne, going over the last two miles of
the course upstream. flnishing at the naval sta?
tion. The time for the two miles was 10:_. which
was not at all bad eonslderlng that there was a
hard tlde and practically no wind at all. The
flrst half was the fast-st. the time being 2:35. After
passlng the half-mlle flag the men began to get
out of time with stroke. whlch slowed the boat up
conslderably. Warren. at No. 5. was Incllned to
row a little short and not get enough body swing.
Th- 'varsltv eight took only a short row down. as
far as the mile flag and back. A low stroke was
rowed the whole way, and a great deal of em
phasis was put on slowing down the recovery. The
men did not shoot away their hands qmckly enough
at the flnish of the stroke. nor start their slldes as
quicklv as Wray desired. As a result of this. the
last part of the stroke was a little hutried, an_
then there was a decided hang before th^ oars were
dropped Into the water at the full reach.
The crew was much better together than lt has
bepn, however, and show?'d -vidences of considera
ble driving power. The 'varsity four went ovr a
half mile on time, using a slow stroke in order to
steady the boat and get the men together. The
time for the distance was 2:50. which was rather
slow as there was a good tide runnlng.
In the mornmg the 'varsity and freshman eights
tried a few racing starts. the 'varsity getting a
little the better of most of them. but not being
able to gain much.
B. C. Storrow. George S. Mumford. R. F. Herrick.
D. F. Down _ and Charles H. Schweppc came down
to Redtop thls afternoon to get a loc-k at the
'varsity crew. Storrow. who coached the crew for
about a week before they came down to New-Lon
don. said that he thought the men showr-d eonsid
erable improvement. Robert L. Bacon. of New
York. came up to the quartera ln his hoitseboat. the
Ploneer, and will take the freshmen out for a trip
on the Sound to-morrow afternoon.
YALE 'VARSITY HARD AT WORK.
Studying to Accustom the Men to Change
Yale Quarters, Gales Ferry. Conn.. June 24.?With
Ortmayer ln the 'varsity eight-oared boat. the row?
ing to-day was not intended to bo a trial of speed,
hut rather to accustom the other men to the change
made necessary by Daly's withdrawal. The morn?
ing rowing was at a slow stroke. and it was no
ticed that the boat checked badly. In the afternoon
this trouble seemed to be remf_ied and the shell
went through the water smoothly, and in a two
mile spin good headway was malntalned.
The freshmen were sent over a mtle aerainst the
watch. and wh!l- the time was not given out. it ls
said to have been better than anything prevlously
done. The practice of the four-oared 'varsity crew
?as a thrce-mile paddle.
Durlng the afternoon the gentlemen s crew. whlch
will have a friendlv race on Wedn-sday with with
a similar crew from the Crimson's quarters. was
formed and had a row. The men ln it are as fol?
