a!«o of the home club. Thtry will meet in the order
As If anticipating hard-fought contests, the club
members turned out in force, so that every point
of vantage was occupied throughout the greater
part of the day. At th* outset the home crowd
received a setback in the defeat of Lawrence
Waterbcry aT the hands of Brooke. The former
national champion never succeeded in setting into
JUs stroke, and. In fact, his game h»d none cf

same story throughout the two succeeding sets.

really hud to extend himself, winning the first set
In five hands. A run of nine saved Clarke in the
liext set. at a time when things seemed to be
■a^oirr decidedly in favor of the Westerner. Thome
ran hi* score up to 11 in the third and decisive set,
only to have Clarke secure the necessary points.

From a competitive point of view the match of
the day was that between McCormick and George
R. Fearing, of Boston, in which the former won
after five hard fought pets that -Bill probably. go
en record as one cf ihe most sensational ever
played at the local club, requiring no tees than
plxty-three hands to decide. Fearing, always a re
sourceful player, besides possessing the faculty for
quickly getting acquainted with all th« angles of
» court, evidently, expected to tire out McCor
mick. In this, however, the former reckoned with
out hi* host, for the winner of the Tuxedo gold
racket never faltered throughout the protracted
n'ruggie, which lasted ell of two hours.
McCwmick won the first s*t. 15— 12. but Fearing
turned the tables in the next ay a strong finish,
fifteen hands being required. McCormick then won
the third pet by the same score as the first.
The fourth pet proved the best of the match. Mc-
Conalek had an easy chance to win on tha game
ball, but missed an easy phot. Ke-arir.? then won
the set, the decisive stroke being of the lucky
order, the ball rebounding from Fearing racket
after on* of the beet rallies of the day. The stroke
gave the ball Just sufficient force to strike the
wal! a few- Inches above the tell-tale.
Tb* £ft& and deciding set was hard fought all
the way. but McCormick finally won by 15—
largely through his strong service.

to which he ha* been subjected for some time
past, in the mean time his post as chief executive
of the league will be filled by John A. Heydler. at
present secretary and president of the organiza
tion. • _
The disagreements, if not strife, between Presi
dent Pulllam and certain National League owners

the closing hours of the meeting, and while Mr.
Pulllam livnU up to his announced Intention of re
maining away from the meeting because ho was
wearie.l of conflict, the league representatives
spoke, of him as an efficient executive, and voted

be turned over to the national commission to be
acted upon as that tody may determine.
Garry Hermann may call a meeting of the com
mission to-morrow to start the task of getting at
tha bottom of the scandal, but after the close of the

Delegates Vote to Uphold President
in Amending Laics.
Three hundred delegates, representing fifty yacht
and motor boat clubs of the United States, from
Portland. Me., to Seattle, at their first conven
tion, held last night at Madison Square Garden
Assembly Room*, voted unanimously to uphold
and assist the Congressional committee appointed
list May by President Roosevelt for the purpose
Of amending the present laws relating to the use
end navigation or power boats In United States
The resolution, which was offered by Fred R.
Still, rear commodore cf the Detroit Motor Boat
I Hub. reads a* follows:
That it 1* the nense of this convention that it Is

This re?olut: n was presented at "the close of a
t»-o-liour session, much of which tim« was occu
pied In calling the roll of delegates and the read
i i| by Secretary Anson B. Cole of the history of
the American Power Boat Association, under the
auspices of which th« convention was held.
There was much disappointment because ther*
was not time to dUcuss the racing rules «nd the
subject of legislation, as It was upon these two
questions only that the delegate* had been in
itructed by their clubs to act.
One of th« Interesting feature* was an Invite.
tion extended to the delegates by MJUer Freeman,
of Seattle, to visit or send their boats to the Pa
r!(l- Coast In the first w»elt ofjuly for the ra<vea
recently arranged by the managers of the Alaska-
Tukon Exposition, which opens at Seattle on June

ranged, for which handsome sliver dips and oth*r
trophies a-* offered. Mr. Freeman *:aterl that 1*
would be the biggest motor boat racing carnlv.il
ever held on the Pacific Coast
Some Uttis dissatisfaction was expressed that th»
delegates had not effected a permanent organiza
tion, but it wa« pointed out that the objects of
mot'-rr boat owners throughout the whole country
would be bout subserved by co-operation with the
already formed American Power Boat Association
rather than by farming another organization which,

GOVERNOR TO SEE SHOW
WILL VISIT THE GARDES.
Motor Boats Prove a Magnet for
Hundreds of Visitors.
Governor Hughes is interested in motor boats.
He will visit the show in Madison Square Garden
to-morrow afternoon, and great preparations are
being made by the show committee to escort him
around the exhibit and point out the many Im
provements that have been made In boat designing
and engine construction. Governor Hughes was
Invited early In the week by President John J.
Amory on behalf of the national association, and
a reply was received yesterday from his military
secretary stating that the Governor will be in th«
city Saturday and will be glad to accept the In
vitation. He will be accompanied by several mem
bers of hia staff, and the committee to receive him
consists of H. R. Sutphen. E. A. Rlotts. James
Craig, W. J. Reynolds and J. M. Truscott.
Popular interest In the show is increasing every
day. Last night closed the first half of the ex
hibit, and at a conservative estimate fully forty
thousand persons have. Inspected th« boats and
engines during the four nights and days that the
show has been in progress. The feeling appears
to be general that the coming year will b« the
biggest and most successful in motor boating ever
seen in this country. This Is strongly exemplified
by the many Inquiries and numerous orders for
launches of the pleasure and long distance crul*
Captain Jacob "W. Miller, chairman of th«
aquatic sports committee of tha Hudson-Fulton
celebration, visited th« Garden yesterday and ex
tended an invitation to all of the makers of motor
boats and representatives of all the- well known
clubs to enter the series of motor boat events to
be held on September 27, 28 and » on the Hudson
River during the celebration exercises. Among tha
events already arranged for are a long distance
race from New York to Troy, a series of mixed
races off Tonkers and a general regatta for all
types In the North River opposite Riverside Drive.
Two boats designed In New York will be com
petitors In theT>ig lob# distance race on the Pacific
Coast this summer. This will be the Seattle to
Vancouver race of 200 miles, which will be held
on July 4. as one of the big features In connection
with the Alaska- Exposition, at Seattle.
Whlttelsey & Whlttaker. who recently designed a
45-foot cabin cruiser for a Seattle man. received a
second order yesterday for a similar boat, to b«
equipped with two ls-horsepower engines.
There are several types of high powered engines
at th« show, similar to those used In the Allsa-
Cralg. twice the winner of the New York to Ber
muda motor boat race, and other high powered
craft. A large oil painting shows the Allsa-Cralg
breasting the waves of the Atlantic during her vic
torious run last year. Beside this picture, two
large sliver trophies, won In 1907 and 1908, are
Mr. Craig is now building a four-cylinder 125
horsepower motor for the gasolene, auxiliary Car
negie, which, under the auspices of the Carnegie
Institution, of Washington, will undertake this
summer to obtain a systematic survey of magnetic
conditions in the deep seas. The boat will have no
magnetic material in Its construction, and the en
gines will contain many novel features. It Is to in
built entirely of bronze and will be operated by gas
generated In a gas producer plant. The Carnegie
was designed by K. J. Glelow. the naval architect,
of this city, and Is now being built In Brooklyn
and is to be finished early in June.
The large demand that has been made for motors
has brought prominently Into view the great num
ber of boats now under construction for the com
ing season. One concern showing a new high speed
engine has sold three «lx-<rylind«r 75-horsepower
engines for speed launches. One Is to be fitted In
a 35-foot racing boat, being built in Boston, while
of the others one is groins to Texas and one to
The demand for medium powered engines is m " |
IPO per cent greater than at the corresponding time
last year. This is especially true for engines from
5 to 14, hcrsepoww. according to one manufacturer.

Is the series of practically continuous band con

SUGAR COMPANY ATTACKS WITNESS
Trying to Impeach the Character of Whalley.
Testifying for Government.
An effort was made by the defence yesterday In
the government suit against the American Sugar
Refining Company to shake the testimony of Rich
it rd Whalley. who said on direct examination that
he knew the scales on the sugar company's docks
had been tampered with.
Whalley gave the signal which led to the raid In
November. 1907, the results of which were mainly
responsible for the present prosecution. Whalley
stuck to his story. Efforts to reflect on his charao
ter were abandoned for a time after the govern
ment counsel ebjected, but later the domestic
troubles of the witness w«Te brought out. On re
direct examination Whalley said that the order to
deceive the government weighers cam* from the
superintendent of the docks.
