Big Crowd Watches Struggle for
Indoor Latin Tennis Title.
More than two thousand spectators fringed the
courts in the' "th Regiment Armory yesterday, and
watched the field of sixty-one aspirants for the na
tional indoor lawn tennis championship dwindle to
eight and the field in the doubles to half of its
original number. In the singles the men who
came through were Arthur S. Cragin, William B.
Cragin, Jr., regimental champion; Theodore Roose
velt Pell, ex-national indoor cliampi"Ti : Wylle C
Grant, holder; George C. Shaffer. Columbia; Rob
ert T. Bryan. Kin? Smith and Julio M. Steinach*r.
To hold their places several of these men won hard
fought contests, although in no sense was an upset
recorded in ail of the forty-one matches played
during the day— twenty-seven in singles and four
teen in doubles.
The majority of the players were on the courts
before the light was good, bat toward noon it
brightened. At this time Grant, the champion, met
Calhoun Crai and with such good execution of
■his fast express service and driving shots that
Cragin was defeated at 6—3. 6— 2. Grant followed
immediately with W. Merrill Hall, winning again
at 6—2. 12—10. Hall braced materially in the se-c
ond set, and placing directly under the champion's
forehand pulled up from behind at — to games

finally lost the plucky uphill fight.

LAST DAY FOR BOATS
NO LACK OF BUSIXESS.
Nathan Straus Buys One of the
Fastest Launches in Shore-.
The motor boat fhow in Madison Square Garden
will come to. an end to-night, but. Judging by the
attendance, yesterday, it could run another week
with profit. Many took advantage of the holiday to
visit the exhibition, and the aisles were so crowded
afternoon am! evening that it was almost in-possible
for thoae who wanted to study the boats a: ■>! en
gines closely for buying purposes to do so with any
comfort. The 47-foot Elco-D« I.uxe. which Edwin
Hawley purchased on Saturday for $10,500, and
the half boat, half flying machine, a novel craft
called the Bat, appeared to attract chief interest,
but nothing was neglected, and the attendants at
the various booths reported plenty of business.
Nathan Straus was a buyer yesterday. He bought
the Elco-Peerl«ss express launch, equipped with a.
60-horsepower engine, for (5,300. This boat is one of
the fastest in the Garden, having a guaranteed
speed of twenty-two milea an hour. Duplicates of
this boat are owned by Albert C. Bostwick and
George W. Chlkls DrezeL Max C. Fielschmann, cf
Cincinnati, ordered a 21-foot launch, equipped with
a >rae power motor, to be used as a tender

F. Baker, Jr., who owns the racing boat Vim, ex

One of the interesting features about the exhibit
has been the Interest shown In the engines by aero
nauts. Several of the new devices calculated to
give the maximum of horsepower with Improved
ease of operation iiave been studied minutely by a
number "f ;i:en interested in aeroplanes. Three
members of the Aero Club of America, who are con
templating building machines for use this reason,
spent a considf rable. time In studying the novel ap
pliances of a two-cycle engine. It Is shown for the
first time at the Garden, and by means of a clev
erly arranged rotary vaivo the engine Is enabled
to develop the maximum horsepower for the bore
and stroke of the motor.
As an object lesson of -what It can do, a single
cylinder, S-horsepower engine Is exhibited, which,
when running at its greatest possible speed of 1,000
revolutions a minute, actually develops ten horse
power. Lightness of material, combined with th*
maximum horsepower. Is the great requirement
for aeroplanes, as well as dirigible airships. So
Impressed were, the prospective aeronauts with
thit- ingenious engine appliance that two of them
agreed to purchase, provided the engine could be
made of the lightest possible materials, combined
with the requisite strength. The 30-horsepower en
gines win be built within the next month, and it
was stated that they would weigh no more than
125 pounds each.
Practically every exhibitor of serviceable small
powered motors has noticed this season more than
ever before the tremendous demand for such en
gines from foreign countries, and an order for
6everal single and double cylinder motors was
taken yesterday fo»- equipment in Norwegian fish
George H. Ketcham. well known among horse
men as the owner of the famous trotter Cresceus,
was a visitor yeeterday, making inquiries for a S5

ber of the Toledo Yacht Club, and Js anxious to
use his new boat in some of the club races there
W. 1. Bijur. of the Jamaica Bay Yacht Club, Is
building a new 35-foot racing boat, for which he
has ordered a 40-horse power motor. An 80-horse
power engine of the same type was used last year
in one of the fastest racing boats on the St. Law
rir.ro. known as The M. L. H.. owned by William
B. Hayrlen. of Alexandria Bay. This boat in her
initial races last summer won several events, de
veloping a speed of • twenty-nine miles *»n hour,
and several angines of this type, but of smaller
horsepower, have been ordered for new boats this
On© of the most popular boats in the show has
bean the 2S-foot Racine cruiser, which at its price
of $&» is one of the most serviceable motor boats
of its type that has been seen this year. It has
an 8-foot beam, containing sleeping accommoda
tions for four persons, with a galley and a. spa
cious cockpit aft. One man can operate the boat,
and it is peculiarly adapted for shooting or pleas
ure cruising' on Long Island Sound, the Great
South Bay or on the Great Lakes. The Racine
concern also shows an exceedingly neat 16-foot
dory, for $150, which will seat nine persons, and
is built to stand any amount of rough weather.
Among the many visitors at the show during the
day was former Lieutenant Governor M. Linn
Bruce, who spent considerable time studying the
latest types of boats and engines. Major David
C. Wilson, of the ah Coast Artillery, and Edwin
Hawley were also at the show.

had many spirited moments. Souter Is one of the
most agile players ever seen In a court, and. ac
cording to travellers, has many of the manoeuvres

1!. with less fast work than any of the others In
the professional ranks here or abroad.
Souter counted his odds in the first hand of each
gam., and on all but two occasions added aces In
play. Tbe first game went to thirteen hands.
Standing took Souter*a service and made him hand
out for a blank. When he went Into the service
box to closo the hand. Standing stood at 11 — 14
and ran it out by an ace in service and three by
P Aided by clever serving and placing the honors of
the second match were all with the Philadelphia*,
I who scored at 15-9. This same analysis and score
marked the third game, but with the New Yorker
in the centre of the limelight. Following out his
hand Standing gained two aces to open the fourth
game and blanked Souter by "killing" his service
lust above the telltale bo that the latter could not
add to his odds. But the Philadelphia* made a
nimble change in the situation by holding Standing
to one ace in the next two hands, meanwhile win
ning for himself, with successive runs of six and
■ four, for 15—3-

result" of the indoor games held in Madison B«u*rß
Garden a week ago last Saturday The .eriooffi e»
of the matter to the track team la shown by «•
fact that H. E. Hall, the manager, has apj>tt« J»
the Board of Student Representatives at «™»-£
for aid in financing his team for the remainder
the season. If he is unsuccessful In obtamta* *•
desired aid it Is likely that the team will be con
siderably hampered In its outdoor work and tnaa
the manager will be debarred from graduation.
In point of attendance the meet was one or t»
most successful ever "held by the Columbia associa
tion. From the number of persons present it was
estimated that the management would profit to tE»
extent of about Jl.OOO. But when the receipts were
counted It was found that. m*t<.-ad*>f being ahead,
the association was short nearly *700. How tils
came about It has thus far been hnposslblo for tha
Columbia manager to explain. So far as he caa

money taken In at the doors, but the fact remains
that the track team is out $700 and is la preeaJn*
