BOATS HOLD PLACE
ACT AS A MAGNET.
New Attendance Record at
Show in Garden;
The attendance at the motor boat- show
in Madison Square Garden yesterday was
fully up to the mark set during the previous
four days of the exhibition. The remark
able interest in the boats and engines is
demonstrated by the fact that the at
tendance during the first five days, ex
ceeded that of the entire ten days last year,
while the volume of business transacted
la nearly SO per ceni in excess of the same
period in any previous show.
The attractions in the building are many.
There is not an engine which does not
demonstrate to the must casual observer
the great improvements in motor construc
tion in the last few years. Among the im
provements in construction tending toward
greater ease and management Is a novel
arrangement in the placing of the rocker
arm or lower electrode on a removable
flange, permitting it to be taken out for
inspection without disturbing other parts.
The volume of business transacted during
the early part of the. show was more than
maintained yesterday. One concern ac
cented a contract from the United States
lifesavlng service for ten 36-foot power life
boat?. The boats are self-righting, self-bail
ing, non-capsizable, and of the type which
the department considers the highest de
velopment of modern times for the rescue
of life at sea. They are built from the
department's plans, and are equipped with
six-cylinder gasolene marine engines. The
boats are built throughout of mahogany.
The hull construction is the most intricate
form of wooden boat building known.
The exhibit of the Racine Boat Manu
facturing Company continues' to "attract
interest One cruising launch .is shown
among others of the same type as the
Racine which last year covered tea thou
sand miles, establishing a record, it is
claimed, for small boats. It is built for
comfort, and so well arranged that every
inch, of space is utilized. ; Hundreds upon
hundreds have climbed aboard and in
spected it closely from stem to stern, and
if nil those who wished for one should
y>lac» their order the company would bo
swamped In naif a day. .. .
Another interesting exhibit is the 250
horsepower motor which will be used in the
Chippewa Yacht club's challenger for the
gold cup of the Thousand Islands yacht
Club, to defend which Frederick^ K. Burn
ham is now building a 200-horsepower 40
foot racer at City [aland. Another exhibit
which is attracting considerable attention Is
a section of a ship's cabin fitted with dec
orated wood panels. It is stated that the
mat-rial is absolutely waterproof and that
the coloring will neither fade nor peel.
The Gunfire II is the only speed boat with
an established record in the Garden. Pur
ing the Hudson-Fulton celebration the boat
established » record on the Hudson River
for boats under SO feet, covering fifteen
miles in .17 minutes 8 seconds, including |
turns, which is at the rate of Dearly twen- ;
ty-five miles an hour. The company show
ing it received an order yesterday for three
mahogany r.S-footers for Bar Harbor. These
boats, ordered by- Philadelphia yachtsmen,
are identical in every respect, and are to
he drawn for by lot when completed. The
owners will race them at Bar Harbor this
Tho annual convention of the National
Power Beat Association, which was ex
pected to convene yesterday morning, did

RIG GAME IN DOIRT.
Columbia Rasketbail Manager
Silent on Challenge.
The basketball management at Columbia
preserved a non-committal attitude yester
day in regard to the challenge issued by
the manager of the New York I'niversity
learn for a game or series of games. No
definite action was taken on the applica
tion, for the Columbia manager has already
received challenges from William? and
Rochester, both of which claim the charm
The Columbia season closes on Satur
day night with a game In Philadelphia
with Pennsylvania, while New York Uni
versity has several more games on its
schedule. If the Columbia team begun
io make arrangements to play tw> games
with every team that has even the slight
»st claim to the so-called Eastern cham
pionship it would have its hands full until
the end of M.iy. according to the manager.
It seems to be a case of play one play all.
The record of the Morningside Heights
team is' about the best in the Kast, for
it has won every college game in which
it has played this season and has scored
more than twice the number of points
•hat have been recorded against it. Will
iams has the next best record, judging
from scores and winning and in
order follow New York Tnlversity sod
Rochester, each Of which has beaten the
other/ leaving little to choose between
them. The College of the City of New-
York is also a possible contender, and
then there are Swartlimr.ro, West Point
and Colgate to be conisdered.
PENN TO GET GAMES.
Harvard Will Not Ask for
Votes on Big Meet.
Boston. Feb. 24. — "Harvard will a=k none
of the colleges tc vot* 1 in behalf of the
Stadium for the next intercollegiate track
games" said W. F. Garcelon, graduate
manager, to-day in discussing the annual
meeting of the intercollegiate association
in New York on Saturday.
It is generally expected in Cambridge
that the games will be held on Franklin
Field, under the management of the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania. The games were
held in the Stadium last year, and returned
the largest revenue in the history of the
association, while the track facilities are
regarded as surpassing those of any other
college in the country.
! eon M IJttle. captain of the track
team will he Harvard's representative at
the meeting. The executive commmittee
will go into session on Friday evening at
the Waldorf-Astoria, and it Is thought that
a recommendation win be adopted in favor
of holding the games at Philadelphia.

the national baseball commission why he
should be restored to good standing: as a
player. This mandate is extended also to
the management of the Chicago club, an 1
rive days are given to make reply.
Because of a lack of evidence the na

final action to-day on Klin?'.- petition for
reinstatement. The case was discussed at
length and then laid over for future con
sideration, either by correspondence or at
a special meeting of the commission.
Both KJing and President Murphy of the
Chicago club are asked, to furnish the com
mission with copies of all the correspond
ence that has passed between them since
the close of the playing season of 1908.
In addition, Kiinir 13 asked under the
same limited terms to furnish a list of th«?
players who accompanied him to Chicago
as members of his semi-professional team
and engaged In games there last year. ; It
is supposed that the commission is anxious
to learn whether the famous catcher vio

engaging in games with or against so called,
