Jfext to the remarkable performance of Dan
iels in the fifty-yard race. Interest centred, per
haps, in ... heats for the Amateur
Athletic Union relay championship. Four men
t^arr.s competed, and each man swam fifty yards.
This niade the total distance of the race 200
yards. In the firrt heat the teams of the Chi
cago Athletic Association and the University of
Pennsylvania met the first team of the New-

namt-3. It wap more ot a performance against
tiir.e than a race, for the New-York swimmers
yon by half the length of the tank, while Chl
a^o easily beat Pennsylvania. When the time
Iras announced it was Feen that both the win
ners and the seconds had broken the Amerlcfin
record of 2-<<o 4-T>. which was held by the New-
York Athletic Club team.

KERMIS DECLARED OUT.
Will Not Start in Suburban—
Brooklyn Loses Six Entries.
Seven horses have been declared out of the
Suburban Handicap and six out of the Brook
lyn Handicap under the condition which makes
declaration possible at $15 up to February 20.
There may l*. on* or two other« when the malls
from the far West net In.
Hermls has been declared from the Suburban,
together with Yon Tromp. Monsieur Beaucairo,
Hot Shot. Firm Water. Nathan Hale and Pro
joser, -while the Brooklyn loses Yon Trump,
Hot Shot, Kuroki, Holscher, Proposer and Her
mitage.
E. R. Thomas's Hermis is the only one which
will be- missed of those declared, and. the more
so because it indicates that the hero of the Sub
urban of lt«04 and many other races may not
train on, after all. He was retired last year af
ter a race at Brighton Beach, in which he clear
ly showed that be was far from himself, in the
1 cpo that a good long rest might result in his
coming back this year to his best form. The
oflicial handicapper. in the allotment of weights
on February 1, gave him 127 pounds, only four
rounds away from Bjraonbjr. which is at the top,
with 131 pounds. It is just possible that Mr.
Thomas believed the weight excessive on his
form of last year, but the official handicapper
ciuld hardly do less, and in all probability other
and more serious reasons led to his declaration.
None of the others which are out could be
considered seriously, even with the light weights
assigned, unless, Bjaaalbly. First \V:uer and
Kuroki can be excepted. They are three-year
olds, however, ■with other rich engagements in
which they need only meet horses of their own
age.
The small number of declarations indicates
clearly that the weights were acceptable to
owners and trainers, and that under favorable
conditions high class fields will go to the post on
the days that the big races are run.

NEW- YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 22. If Km,
CHORDS AT THE SHOW
Motor Boats Centre of Interest —
Water Sports Amuse.
In npfte of the rain yesterday a big crowd wag
Jn attendance at the Motor Boat and Sports
men's Show in Madison Square Garden. During
the evening- particularly the aisles were almost
Impassable. The motor boats seem to be the
centre of Interest, and so many wanted to take
n. trip on the lake thnt all could not bo accom
modated. There are twenty-one boats on the
water and seventeen others on the nr.ain floor.
With the exception of a couple of canoes, all
nre equippf\l with prasolene engines of from -'!
to 250 hmrsepo-rer. One canoe has a small engine
that sends It around the course at a lively pace.
There will be no fly casting 1 tournament at the
phow this year, a feature which will be missed
by the followers of Izaak Wnlton, but B. M. Van
All^n is agttin at the Garden to show hi 3 skill
with the rifle. In his exhibitions, which are
given every hour, he split! cards held in the
hands of an assistant, breaks two balls at one*,
one b*»ing stationery and the other revolving;
outlines heads and repeats all these with his
back turned, by means of a mirror.
Dave Hennen Morris, the president of the Au
tomobile Club of America, was among the vis
itors at the phow yesterday. lie expressed the
opinion that there was a great future for motor
boats, which will be used to v greater extent as
people become more familiar v.ith the workings
of gasolene- engines. Ho said:
Ir S'-ems to me that the first move of a sports
man is to Becure an automobile, and this he fol
lows with the purchase of a motor boat, while
driven things seems r^ be
the airship, ivhi<'h is making suc-h rapid prog
. America with the impetus given it by
w Aero Club. In all these things the
tie engine is necessary, and I am fr» •■ to
p;iy that more fr; • • - nre at work Improv
ing gasolei ton than on any other
known proposition. The use of the ga
- in the automobile, motor boat and ;tir
ship pi\>«; tremendous power with light weight,
and, best of all. the principle is co easily under
stood that almost any one can handle them.
Ami rlcana love speed, whether it bo on v rail
road, steamship, in a motor boat or in an auto
mobile. Knowing so well the officers in the
Motor Boat Club of America, I am sure the
organization will proi; Interesting con
thia year. I should like very
much to see a motor boat contest from Albany
to New-York.
The whooping crane, whose peculiar whoop
ins, groaning cry has caused dismay to many
of the visitors at the show, was yesterday sold
to Fred Gallatln, Jr.. for $500. The animal was
part of the exhibition of Dr. Cecil French.
Beat It, a high speed electric launch with
a 60-horsepo\ver engine which is capable of
going twenty miles an hour, attracts many visi
tors. It is a commodious craft carrying nine
people and finished In mahogany, with all the
conveniences for luxurious water travel. A self
charging electric launch In the lagoon is one
of the novelties of the show. This boat carries
its own charging plant, thus making the owner
Independent of any electric plant.
Two Indian girls appeared on the lake in a
canoe yesterday and gave an exhibition of
canoe paddling which made the efforts of the
lifesaving volunteers look amateurish. Besting
oiio one knee la true backwoods style, these
daughters of the North, dressed in their native
costume, with their long black hair falling over
their shoulders, cent a light birch bark canoe
around the Jake at a lively clip. Hundreds of
visitors stopped examining the various exhibits
and flocked to the railings to watch the exhibi
tion.
The canoe tilting and man fishing contests in
the water aroused much amusement and proved
entertaining. A summary of the water sports
follows:

THE TOOT, BEFORE THE- CROWT> ARRnTED LAST NIGHT.
CUP CHALLENGE SE.XT.
American Lawn Tennis Team to Try
Again for Davis Trophy.
Formal challenge for the Dwlght P. Davis
International challenge cup was sent by cable
to the English Lawn Tennis Association yes
terday. A copy of the challenge- will follow by
mail. The challenge was addressed to O. R.
Mewburti, honorable secretary of the English
Lawn Trnnls Association, London. It was signed
by Frederick G. Anderson. Kings County Lawn
Tennis Club. Brooklyn, chairman of the com
mittee on the international challenge; Dr. James
Dwight. of Boston, president of the- national as
sociation, and Raymond D. Little. West Sid©
Lawn Tennis Club, of this city.
Mr. Anderson. in speaking of the sending of
the challenge yesterday, said that the commit
tee had communicated with the top class players
of this country and had found that it would be
possible to send abroad a team of which even
better results might be expected than last sea
son. It was because of these assurances that
the challenge had been Bent a full week in ad
vanc& of the date required tty the conditions
governing the contests. March 1.
The make-up of the team will not be an
nounced for some weeks, but from the talk of
the followers of the sport in this city It is prob
able that the American team will bo selected
from Reals C. Wright, national champion in
singles; Holcombe Ward, ex-champion and
holder of the national doubles title with Wright;
Fred( B. Alexander. Krelgh Collins, the
Western champion, and Clarence Hobart.
Th- Davis Cup was won by the r»oh»rty
brothers in IDOi on the courts of the Longwoo£
Cricket Club, Boston. The defending American
team at that time was composed of William A.
Lamed and Robert D. Wrenn in the singles,
while George L. Wrenn, jr. paired with his
brother in the doubles. The Englishmen tried
three times before they succeeded in capturing
the cup. From recent communications from
London the Britons will be represented by the
same players as last year, Hugh Lawrepce
Doherty, their champion; Reginald F. Doherty
and Frank L. Rlseley. At the present time there
Is considerable doubt in England as to the play-
Ing of the international matches on the "Wimble
don courts. Australia, France, Germany, Bel
glum and Sweden are expected to challenge for
the cup also.

GGth-st. and Park-aye. Pell defeated Morris S.
Clark, rated as one of the foremost experts of
the metropolitan district, by the score of ♦»—» —
5—7, ft— l. Irving C. "Wright, the younger
brother of Deals C. Wright, the national cham
pion, also made his appearance, -winning in
straight sets from Kin? Smith. Despite the poor
light eight matches were decided in the singles
and one in the championship doubles. In the
latter Edwin P. Fisher and Hugh Tallant scored
a well earned victory over the young pair of
the Kings County Lawn Tennis Club. H. I*
Westfall and J. W. Anderson.
The victory of Pell was in the nature of a Bur
prise. He was unusually severe on his returns,
and played a strenuous game through the entire
three sets of the match. In volleying and driv
ing from his backhand Pell displayed unlocked
for strength. Clark forced htm to work for his
points during the first set. and then by deep
placing to the far right hand corner of his oppo
nent's court Clark managed to win the second
set alter deuce had been called. The terrific
speed and accuracy of Pell overwhelmed Clark
in the third and deciding set. the loser being out
played at every point.
The younger Wright developed a fine placing
game in his contest with King Smith. The latter
was never dangerous, as Wright kept him on the
defensive in each of the two sets. A feature of
this match was the lobbing of Wright whenever
Smith attempted to gain the net. The ball fell
close to the base line, seldom going outside,
which forced Smith to keep on the run and lead
to faulty returns.
Play In the tournament will be continued to
day matches being scheduled for 10 o'clock In
the morning, with one or both matches in the
semi-final round in singles for the afternoon.

ST. 'ANDREWS ACCEPTS.
Grants Use of Its Links for If. G.
A. Amateur Championship.
Th© St. Andrews Golf Club has officially
granted the request of the Metropolitan Qolf
Association for the use of its links for the local
amateur championship tournament In May.
Leighton Calkins, secretary of the association,
received word to that effect yesterday from
Charles W. Dayton. Jr.. secretary of the St.
Andrews club, who wrote as follows:
On behalf of the St. Andrews Golf Club I beg
to acknowledge receipt of your notification that
the executive committee had voted unanimously
in favor of holding the amateur championship
at St. Andrews, provided our club would be will
ins to have the event held on its links.
In answering, I beg la advl?e that the St.
Andrews Golf Club takes pleasure In comply
ing with the request of your executive com
mittee and places its links at the association's
disposal on the dates selected.
"Walter TV. Stern, captain of the St. Andrews
Golf Club. In referring to the tournament, said
that everything possible would be done to make
it a success. During the tournament a special
train will leave the Grand Central Station each
morning at 30. getting the golfers to the club
house at Chauncoy in thirty-five minutes.
The present plan is to stretch out the playing
length of th© course, and the tees at the fourth,
sixth, eleventh, thirteenth, seventeenth and
eighteenth holes will all tx» put back, adding
close to three hundred yards, and bringing the
total close to six thousand yards. This length
ening of the course will be a comparatively easy
matter, as most of the tees mentioned were
originally further back. The turf through the
fair green has been Improved in th© last year
or two, and recently four and a half miles of
drains have been put in, so that even in the low
lands no serious Inconvenience Is experienced
in rainy weather.

IS
Going Up!
Copper stocks and railroad stocks are aell?p.g.
high enough, Tliere to one stock now that
should be bought. It Is In a class by ltseli
It Is just as safe and sure a purchase tor ft,
great rise and big dividend* now below $5 a
share as Calumet & Hecla or Old Dominion
•were when they were selling below $3.
The greatest mining engineers and expert!
have examined and reported on the Amsrteaa
Nickel property. Cosine Ping. E. M.I Jaaes
E. Lyon, E. M.; M. Knoetzer. D, M.; Citric*'
Ball, E. M., and Capt S. L. Burbrfdg«, E. 31 i
They all agree that the American Mc&ai
Company have developed th« richest and most;
valuable nickel mines In Cm world to-day. j
Powerful bankers have been QnleCy assort*'
tag the floating shares on the New York Cart);
Market and a great rise In American Mckali
stock Is Inevitable. Nothing can atop tt. j
Old Dominion went up from $1.50 to- $53.
Calumet & Ilecla went Tip from $2 to $900 «
share and has paid over $02,000,000 la dtvV
dends to shareholders. American Nickel is can* 1
trolled and backed by the same able, experw
lenced and honest capitalists who developed
Old Dominion and Calumet & Hecla. They »ayS
It is the best investment In the market to-day, i
and will surely sell at $60 a share on the N%w>
York Curb Market before long, and eventually*
It will be all absorbed by investors at $100 a
share, "A word to the wise Is sufficient."
Very few people know that the American'
Nickel Company owns the only nickel mine*
In the United States and the only nickel raises •'
In the world that can produce high grade era.
The stocks of the foreign companies are seTV
Ing at high prices.
Soclete Nickel at 773 franc* with larsre amount
of bonds ahead of this stock.
International Nickel at $85 for the Preferred
and $75 for th© Common, with $10,000,000 bonds
ahead of the stocks.
American Nickel is sellms under $3 a share
on, the Curb Market at present.
This stock 13 absolutely certain to sell highest
than Soclete Nickel or International In time.
It represents sole absolute ownership of foo#
rich nickel mines; seven years of development'
■work has exposed 1,500.000 tons of nickel or%
worth $100 a ton: over $250 a share In sight
on each share of American Nickel stock, now*
being dealt in on the Curb at ridiculously low
prices.
The mines are completely equipped witti
powerful modern mining machinery and 20 '
tons of additional machinery are now b«ins{
Installed for future use. This company also
owns many buildings, an electric plant and m :
townslte, and has no bonded or mortgaged In
debtedness of any kind, and Its balance sheet
shows a solid financial condition with a hand
some surplus in the treasury.
The foreign companies produce nickel at •
cost of 25 cents per pound, because their ore
yields only 8 per cent nickel— «bout 63 pounds ,
of nickel from a ton of ore.
American Nickel can produce the metal for ;
10 cents per pound, because their ore yields
15 per cent, nickel— 3oo pounds of nickel from .
a ton of ore.
Intelligent investors "will toon discover that*
great intrinsic value of American Nickel stock
and recognize the fact that these shares nr»»
sent the opportunity of a lifetime. 4
All bankers and brokers and members of
stock exchanges in the principal cities execute |
orders to buy and sell this stock on the "Sew, \
York Curb Market
Commission brokers generally advise custom*}
ers to leave It alone because they know notb>»

Ins: about it yet. After It crosses $50 a share \
they will begin to investigate, and then gladly
buy and carry It on margin. But now Is the
time for the alert investor and speculator to
make the bis sure profit.
There are only 700 stockholders at present—
not enough public holding to warrant listing it
on the N. Y. Stock Exchange yet The Curb
Market is broad enough for it. as the dealings j
so far have ranged from a few hundred to
four or five thousand shares a day.
Far-seeing capitalists and financiers says
"American Nickel is the coming speculative >
