Canadian, who led for nearly nineteen
miles; Matt Maloney. <• f Tonkcrs; Uml>orto

It *«* a hard race for Holmer to lose
after cutting out the pace for three-quarter?
of the way. Ills feet then ivent to the ha«l,
but he could hardly have don<» better than
play second fiddle to the great Ljungstrom,
who appears to be wellnigh invincible at
any distance he makes up his mind to run.

lt-!:i|r content to loaf along from start to

Beginning with the third, all the Inter

•fter the race. Hjertb*rg. on behalf of Johan

at the same distance over the Celtic
Park track. Sparrow Robertson, Crowleys
trainer, will probably accept.
That interest in Marathons ha? rot abated
»•*« shown by the size of the crowd, which
probably numbered fifteen ihou«ind per
sons. Timothy D. Sullivan was the starter
•nd Tim Hum was the referee.
Many well known celebrities were noticed
In the grandstand. Abe An-!!, the eham
itlan featherweight boxer, looking none the
worse for his bout with Owen Morar., was
there and placed a bet on Holmer. getting
IV to 1 for his money.
Rarely ha»l Alarathoners plodded over a
better courr-e. A sir-lap track was laid
out. in»tead of a four or Jive ÜBMa to the
mlie circuit, for the reason that by :-o
doing a. beautiful expanse of turf was
utilized. With the exception o! the bare
space around the home plate the tra~k ei
leaded over an eve.. greensward.
In the opinion or Sparrow Robertson, the
track was farter than any over which run

country. Ore e.er:t-it the wind— alv.ays a

to draw st»-a..'iily away.
Some excitement was occasioned about
the time Holmer had covered seven miles
by Hayes cutting loose and carrying Crow
ley. - Hen and Ljungstrom along in an tn
deavor to keep away from Holmer. Crook,
Blasi and Maloney continued to fall back.
In the ■pott started by Hayes Sellen and
Crow lev held on, but L»junpstrom dropped
back, and shortly after, covering eight
rr-.i!.es '■•liner caught the Swede.
At this point the order of the leaders was
Holm. r. Crowley. Sellcn, I,jungstrom and
Hayes. Holmers time for eight miles—
43:40 2-s— was 1 minut<? and 32 seconds better
than St. Yves's Polo Grounds record.
Shortly after nine miles Holmer lapped
Sellen. ■ltd then the only man in the rare
that Hans had not gained a complete cir
cuit on was Crowley. A little later Holmer
practically lapped Crowley, as he had pulled
up to within five yards of the big Irishman.
At that time six men were all moving along
in a cluster— Crowley, Hayes, Johanson,
LoungFtrora. Holmer and Sellen.
An idea of the fast pace was conveyed by
the fact that Holmer reeled past the ten
mile i .-'st «n 55:26, Dearly two minutes ahead
of St. Yves"? mark. (ley's time for the
distance was f»S:2S and Crook's 56:25 2-5,
both ahead of the old mark.
The six-man combine was broken up at
eleven miles, when Ljunsstrom started to
sport in an effort to get back the lost lap.
Holmes only succeeded in sticking to the
red haired Swede, but Crowley, Johanson
and E Den kept pegging along with Crow

a speed that would have done credit to a
mller. the Swede began to regain much of
the lost ground. At seventeen miles I-jung
strom's shortage was only half a lap, and
it looked bad for Ilolmer, who appeared to
be tiring badly.
A.-- if aware of the condition of his rival,
LjuTiir.-trom kept going at the same relent

almost certain winner.

which caused the Swede's shoe to partly
come off. He adjusted it at once and com

had do:ie it on purpose. The ode's foot
was slightly cut from Holmer's spikes.
The latter claimed It was an accident.

JOHNSON CASE GONE.
Not on Court Calendar — Per
haps in Judge's Pocket.
The case of Jack Johnson, heavyweight
champion, indicted for assault, has disap
peared from the calendar of the Court of
General Sessions. Nothing has been heard
of It since Johnson was released, ten days
ago. under $5,000 bonds, because Norman
Pinder, who charges the assault, and the
other witnesses for the prosecution were
missing. They are still missing, and noth
ing is being done to find them.
If Johnson has any fear that they will
be found he can dismiss it, unless some
body officially connected with the case
wakes up to the fact that it has been about
as effectually pigeonholed as any case can
be und«>r the present calendar system.
Literally, the case is "suspended some
where between Judge Mulqueen and the
calendar," as a court officer sized up the
The process* servers of the District At
torney's office who were looking for Plnder
and the others who expected to testify
against Johnson up to March 23, the date
set for the trial, have dropped the case.
Although Judge Mulqueen said at the time
that he would issue attachments anu have
officers get on the trail of Piinit-r. such at
tachments have not been issued and the
detectives of the District Attorney's stuff
are doing nothing.
Most interesting of all is the Till I that the
case of "The People against John John
son" does not appear on the call calendar,
nor has any other day been set for the
trial. These are the only alternatives pro
vided under the printed rules of the court
for disposition of a caso under the circum
stances in the Johnson case.
Judge Mulqueen left Part 1 of General
Sessions on Friday at the close at the
March term. He will be succeeded in the
April term by Judge Mr. lone. But Judge
Malone, who has a reputation for severity
in sentencing convicted defendants, appar
ently will not have anything to do with the
Johnson case, tor the reason that It is not
on the calendar. Apparently Judge Mai
queen has taken the case -with him into
Part 11, where be will sit daring- the A->ri!
term. Judge Mulqueen has a reputation
for leniency in sentencing.
The detective bureau of the District At
torney's office explained yesterday that it
was not up to It to get after Pteder until
a process server had made affidavit that he
had personally served Pinder and Pinder
had failed to appear in response to the
summons. As no process server had
located Pinder such an affidavit could not

call calendar, which brings the Inquirer
back to the previous question, "Why isn't
the case on the call calendar?" Here Is
the answer of an assistant prosecuting offi
cer of the county:
"Judge MulQueen has the Johnson case
in his hip pocket."

the game well in hand, they began to make
laughable attempts at base stealing. Mc-
Graw tried to steal home on one occasion,
and when he saw he was caught he turned
and ran toward the pine woods, with the
catcher In hot pursuit. There are a num
ber of New Yorkers here for their health,
and they enjoyed the game immensely.
Mathowson was the star attraction of
the afternoon, but he was not in as good
form as usual. In the third inning he was
decidedly wild, for the first time this sea

made a wild pitch which allowed a runner
to score. He was succeeded by Klawitter

Princeton. K. X. April 2.-Although badly
outbatted the Princeton baseball nine had
little difficulty in defeating Dickinson this
afternoon by the score of 10 to 5. The
game abounded in heavy hitting, which
succeeded in holding the Interest of the
crowd during the two hours or more or
Dickinson appeared dangerous only once.
This was in the third Inning, when Hen
derson's long hit to left field scored two
runs and tier! the score. In their half of
the same inning the Tigers again took the
lead, scoring four runs from a triple, two
two-baggers and a single. The Princeton
men played an excellent game In the field
and made their hits count. The errors of the
visiting team were responsible for several
of the victors' run?.
The Dickinson batters found the Tiger
pitchers easy, especially Woodle. who was
touched up for nine hit?, with a total of
fourteen bases, and had the home team*
fielding been less sure the result might
have been different. Reed played a brilliant
game at shortstop for Princeton, accepting
eight chances without a slip.
The score follows:
