The Importers' Automobile Salon, at Madison
Square Garden, attracted Its fair share of holiday
seeker? aajatjeraa] and a good sized crowd was in
nfUSMliii ' both aft< moon and evening. To the
satisfaction of the exhibitors, there were plenty of
buyers as well as sightseers, and more orders
•were placed than on any previous day of the show.
In s?omc re«p»ct« the attendance has not been up to

Mayor HcCMlan has the loudest automobile in
New York. This is making a bold statement when
Fire Chief Croker's "red devil" is taken into con

t* do with his car to be distinctly "up to date."

"Is a came! cattle?" was the question a aked S. R.
Ball, the decorator of the show at the Garden,
yesterday. The question grew out of the New
Year's Eve parade, "The Evolution of the 150S
Automobile." which Mr. Ball prepared and man
eced. As planned, the procession, which Senion
strated the growth of locomotion methods from the
days of primeval man to the days of the motor
car, anus to hay» included a. camel and a yoke of
oxen. Thcss were secured out of town by Mr.
Ball's acents and ■were being led down Fourth
■.venue from the Grand Central Station when the
police interfered. They cited a city ordinance
v.-hich prohibits the leading or driving of horned or
rr.ilch cattle tlaough the streets except at certain
hours, with permits.
Mr. Bali, noticed of the fact by telephone Bter
ally at the eleventh hour, had a heated arg-ament
tvith a police asrgeant in aa effort to prove that a
camel is not a horned or milch creature. But the
police had nine or ten points of the law, and the
camel did not appear in the pageant. It was res
cued for the repetition of the parade yesterday, but

Considerable curiosity was aroused i-y the men

by Colonel Aster. No one had ever heard of a

A CORNER AT THE IMPORTERS' AUTOMOBILE SALON IN MADISON SQUARE GARDEN.
FIGHT EXDS IX DRAW.
Moran and Attell Go Twtktff-fice
Rounds Without Decision.
San Francisco. Jan. 1. — Ower. Moran, the cham
pion featherweight of England, fought twenty -five
rounds to a draw at Coma to-day with Abe Attell,
champion of America. Moran was strong and ag
gressive, quick as a f\a?\.. and kept after Attell all
the tlmr-. Attel! had plenty of opportunity to show
his cleverness in keeping rw.iv from the rush of
Attell seemed to lack force in his punches, and
found it difficult to land a blow on a vita! spot.
Moon's eye was blackened and his nose bled, but
the punishing blows to the stomach and the swings
to the jaw were missing. Moraa'a game was to
iead.with 'Itiier right or left, and th«T. close in.

Attell much harm.
The final round was most ex'-itine Moran seemed
to take on a new lease of vigor and, with bead
down, waded Into Atteil. Win^i^g rights and lefts.
When the gong rang for th» close both men kept
on flgl.ting fiercely. Jim Jeffries, the referee, had
to separate th<^m. The decision was received With
approval by the big crowd.
It looked for ■ time as if the men would not meet,
owing to the fact that Moran was two ouucea over
weight. Attell demanded J^."'i for The surplus two
ounces before he would consent to go r.n. Koran's
manager stated that the Britou had found it ex
tremely difficult to got down To weight, and at 11
S'docfc this n-.Tring was compelled to do two mil<»s
of vigorous road work.
While interesting, The contest was not particu
larly exciting, and did not come up to the standard
of a championship battl". Between seven thousand
ar.d eislu thousand persons witnessed the contest.
Jeffries said that the fight was so close that hf*
found it impossible to give a decision in favor of
either man. He thought that AtteU had slightly
the .•■.-,;-•- on points, but not sufficiently to
justify a decision in his favor.

Some two thousarri spectators saw an exciting
association football match at Marquette Oval, in
Brooklyn. yesterUy afternoon, when the Cam
erons. holders of the New York Amateur Associa
tion Football League championship, met^the eleven
of the Brooklyn Football Club. For a time it
seemed as though the Brooklyns, who have been
showing their best lorrn recently, would prove too
much for the league champions. In the end. how
ever the Camerons displayed strong staying pow
ers, and pulled out of the game, with a tie at two
po.ils for each team.
Great delight was shown by the onlookers when :
the Brooklyn* established" a lead of two goals in ,
the Brst half. J. P. Stuart, centre forward for the
home team, Started the scoring with a rattling shot
that beat the Cameron custodian completely. A.
Hampson followed up the advantage by scoring
from inside left before the call of half time, In
the second half W. Crowe. Inside right for the
Camerons, set about cutting down the lead, and
succeeded in placing the first goal to the credit of
his Fide. When the excitement was the highest

the eleven of the Philadelphia Cricket Club at
Wissahickon to-day, th« association football team
of the Btaten Island Football Club, of New York,
succeeded in making a tie with the local cracks
after a closely contested match, wherein the play
ers of both sides were seen to excellent advantage.
Repeated attempt* to score at the expense of the
visiting goalkeeper were frustrat-d by the sterling
defence of A. Van der Zee, supported by B. Tabor
and E. Bindell as baekm ; Eventually C. B. Jen
ninps sent in a difficult cross shot from outside
right, which ■ netrated the Staten Island goal.
It fell to Captain E. C. Jenkins, playing right
halfback, to tie the score with a sharp low six t
from a mix-up in frcr.t of the Philadelpl not.
From then on until tin- end of the game victory
eluded thie strenuoua efforts of both teams. E.
Dwyer, 1 tain of the Columbia University eieven,

FAST RUX TO IIOIXDS.
Jack Razdins Gets a Fall, but
Escapes with Shaking Up.
Hempstead, Long Island. Jari. 1 (Special).— New
Year's Day was celebrated by a number of the
members of the Meadow Brook Club by having a
cross-country run this afternoon behind the fast
pack of English fox hounds. Although the hounds
were only chasing a small aniseed bag, there was
just as much excitement as though they were trail
ing a live Reynard, and the huntsmen took as
many chances at the stiff fences as though there
was a bruFh at the end of the run.
The ground was slightly frozen to-day, but not
enough to make Jumping dangerous, and a party
in traps and automobiles followed the run by way
of the convenient highways. The meet was at East
Wllliston, and the pack was put in at the cross
roads, where they caught the scent. At the Roslyn
powerhouse the scent was lifted for a few min
utes after a stliT four mi'.e run.
When next released the pack crossed th» Taber
WUlettS place and the Townsend estate, and then
east to the Robert Bacon place and on to tha
Parks estate ard the J. Phippa place, where th«»
run ended. Several who had started with the pack
were compelled to pull out before the end, as the
pace was fast and the jumping stiff.
While crossing the Velsor farm Jack Rawlins,
v;*io has just recovered from a dislocated shoulder
b!ac!e. attempted to save distana? by jumping a
picket fence, and as a result his mount pecked
and came down heavily. Mr. Rawlina was not
ser'ously Injured, although badly shaken up. He

Bryan and Clark Win Indoor Title
of 7th Regiment.
It was necessary to nghi out the doubles lawn
tennis champions match through the limit of
five sets before Robert T Bryan and M »rrla S.
Clark yesterday clinched their holding of the title.
The victory marked the third consecutive winning
of the honors in the annual indoor tournaments of
the Tth Regiment. Bryan and Clark started to
make a runaway of the meeting, and on the third
set they were once within a point of the cham
pionship at 5-2 and 40—30. only to have their op
ponents. Caihoun and Arthur S. Cragin, make a run
of five straight games and capture the set. In the
deciding set the Cragin brothera disptaj >d a Basil
of form which sent them ahead al 2-love. They
could not bold the pace, however, and Bryan and
Clark finally made a greaJ pull up and won by a
score of 6—6 — 6—6 — 5—7, •■— ♦> • •>•
In the semi-nnal round Of the singles Bryan,

an audience that taxed the capacity of the lecture
room on one of the upper floors of the palace.

The moving pictures showing moose swimming
and plunging about in the water has led to many
inquiries as to how it was possible to secure the
pictures. Arthur Robinson, a New Yorker by vot- i
ing qualifications, but a son of the forest by delib
erate choice during half the year, explained It all
in recounting a story yesterday of an experience
he had with three sportsmen who doubted his word
when he told of paddling into a big bull moose In
the middle of the lake near his camp at night.
Mr. Robinson, who took many of the pictures.
agreed to prove his statement, and took his doubt
ing friends out in a canoe. He told what happened
in the following words:
"We paddled down to the far*end of the lake, and
it seemed as though, just because I had issued the
challenge, we were not going- to see a single thing
with horns. Quickly and cautiously I propelled the
canoe around one . side and back along the other
bank, but we had made almost the entire circuit
and were nearly back to the boathouse by the land
| Ing before I saw anything that looked like a moose.
Then I caught sight of him. not fifty feet from
shore, a dark, indefinite figure, just putting down
I his head to feed.
j "I kne.v that he would be under water for thirty
: seconds, and in that time, knowing also that none
' of the others had seen the beast, I paddled a Uttie
| closer. His head came up; then once again he
was under, serenely engaged In the continuance of
his supper. This second oportunity was what I had
been waitr.g for. I was now 90 close that thirty
seconds was all that was needed to bring us along
side. A few quick, quiet strokes, and we were po.
near that It would have been easy for me to
have butted the bcw of the canoe right into him. ana
actually repeated with intention the accidental hap
pening of which 1 had spoken to these skeptics.
•But I did not wish to "rub It In' too much. I
went right by his submerged head and steadied the
canoe broadside on directly kMUI him. I had an idea
of what would happen, and more than a notion
that some one was in for a ducking. 'Get ready." I
aaid, and scarcely were the words out of my mouth
when the Mg head of the moo«e loomed up directly
between Mr. Pratt and Mr. Dominick, who were
j in the middle of the canoe. •
"Involuntarily they leaned over, and as the brute
1 heaved his big shoulders, and Bateson endeavored
to set oft the flash, the birchbark keeled over, and
all of us were in the water.
"Fortunately, it was not far from the boathouse,
and we graded ashore without much difficulty. In
stead of taking a photograph of the moose. I took
one of the whole bedraggled part*- that had Insisted
lon testing my word. At least, each one of them
I has a reminder of the fact that rr..->ose may be run
j into on the lake in front of my camp where nearly
j all of my animal photographic work has r-«*»r. de
GERMANS MAY ROW HEBE.
Although the Olympic rowing championships on
the Thames River in England will prove a strong
attraction to oarsmen all over the world, there is
a liaillJ that Wiiibi irr will be represented at
the chief regattas in this country. VTaldimir Sand,
who competed on the Pot->mac. last summer, has
been busy in his country stirring up the German
oarsmen with stories ot the fine treatment he re
ceived m America and advising them to come to
this country next summer.
From reports received from the other side It
seems now as if the HeDni Rowing Club, of Berlin,
coaM be mduced to send two or three crews to the
national regatta provided part of their expenses
were paid by the rowing authorities of this country
It would be A good thing for the sport in the
United States if this was brought about, for with
the Canadian crews on deck the regatta would
take on a truly international flavor and prove a b:g
James Pilkineton, president of the National As
sociation of Amateur Of—llll, will soon be^in to
pick the men who will represent America at the
Olympic races. Bennett, of the Sprinpfleld Rowing
Club winner of the sculline i lianiplnnsnlp last
V( , ar ' i S almost sure *f ■ place. Durando Miller, of
the New York Athletic Club: Frank B. Oreer. si
Boston and Fred Shepheard. of the ■iisiisiH
Boit club will alss have to be considered. The
Mercury Foot oarsman will come pretty near get
