raooer-up In the amateor championship and
tfortnlght since beat Held for the Yale oham
rionahlp. the latter had the strongest eup
mrttowln. This was on account of the One

it-aT was Smith's attempt from the first tee,
m which he had the honor. Heid was well on
the gr."rt in -'. but Smith laid his approaoh

lor the second was even better, for tho ball

D.I to Smith's 4. Next they halved the short
hole In 8, but Hold lost a stroke by a poor
brnUFT 'hot on the way to tho fifth hoi. Smith
winnlnit it In 5 to 0. The latter was again 2 up.
A pair of 4's gave both the aixth ana soventh

This made them nil square at the turning

titlvei: the eleventh In 5. each mlss
r.g t chance in putting on this tricky
erm. The pond hole. 140 yards, was grandly
played by Held, but Smith did exactly the re
iere The latter drove nearly to the green,
but Held alicod into the trees well over the
viler hazard. Although hnlf-stlmled by a
tree. Held played a brilliant mnshie shot from
I the lung crnas. niul. grazing the tree trunk, the

U niiapnroachpnt. and, realizing that he had to
(cored: 3 to win. he played to go down and
overran Keid won in d to 5, and was 2 up.
Two halved holes followed, and then Reld
added another to his lead by holing out an ap
proach put of some sixty feet on the fifteenth
irecn. Smith lay dead for a 5 and felt per
fectly afe. Thla Is the more remarkable be
cause Reld had sliced his drive Into theorohard,
and, alter playing out. had made the edge of
tha green with his brassey. Again came two
haired holes in 5. Held lost the home hole by
milling a two-foot put to halve in 0. This left
him 2 un on the morning play.
Beginning the afternoon journey Smith won
tha first bole In 3. getting down a twenty-flve-foot
put. Reid taking 4. Both were well on the
second green in 2. Reid hitting the disk on his
mishie shot, which laid his ball within two
feet He missed this put. but won in 4 to 5, A
half In 4 followed for the thinl hole, but Reld
increased his lead by winning the fourth
hole In 2. getting down a twelve-foot put.
Smith took 3. A drive and a bras
Mr brought Reld on the fifth green
In 2 and Smith within a hhort pitch of it. Held
If made an ideal apptouoli put and won in 4 to 5.
Two halved holes followed. Next in order was
the elehth. on which Smith half-topped both
drive and brassey shot, and made the green by
seWex ihot on his third Hold drove well, but
txM three Iron shots to gain the hill that
holds the green. This was his only weakly
flayed hole of the match. Smith won it,
a to 7. approximated. Reld had an easy 7.
but lifted Smith lost the ninth. 4 to 6.
and Held was again 4 up. An incident that
amused the "gallery" on this green was the
appearance of a long-bodied dachshund as the
njeq were putting, and the dog had to be lifted
off by Reld by the scruff of the neck before ha
could nut. Smith won the 285 tenth hole In a
Itoautiful 3 making the green with a half-Iron
second hot and running down a ten-foot put.
Heid played par golf for the next three boles.
It could not have been beaten, but might have
been tied, a feat Smith failed to do by a stroke
in each Instance. This settled the match in

Yesterday afternoon's outing at Aqueduct
Was a disastrous one for backers of favorites,
as the only successful first choice was Warren -ton
In th third race at the unprofitable odds of
3 to 10. Oliver' colt wss at first quoted at 1 to
0, but as patron of th Queen County Jockey
Club generally fight shy of suoh a price, they
preferred to take a chance on either Brigh
ton at 7 to 2. or Ben Eder at 10 to 1. to
beat th favorite. Brighton left the barrier
fnll of running and opened up quite a gap In
the first six furlongs. Then Ben Eder made an
Imi-raaalv bluff and threatened to come homo
alone. He collapsed again before his backers
had fairly started cheering, and Brighton
turned Into the stretch cloar. In the run homo
Warrenton moved up at will under wraps and
won well In hand by almost a length from
Outaldo of this event, most Interest centred
In th selling race at one mllo and forty yards,
for three-year-olds and upward. Ho much
money went Into the ring on Charentus that
he became an odds-on favorite, with Blueaway
a strong second choice. The only other of the
six runners playod was Frohman, with the
owner's 10-yenr-old son. Johnny Daly,
up. Frohman rushed to the front after
a furlong and stuck there to the end.
Charentus chased him up the stretch
closely and almost got on terms, but "the
midget" simply oourtnd Olawson's chrtllongo
and then beat him home cleverly by n head.
Tho triumph of the youngster was the signnl
for a big ovntlon, nithough few outside tho
stable eiiruiei't ion had plnyed his mount. Tho
firococlous kid wits grinning like a coon
n front of a melon as ho returned to

Even Clawson had to join In the laugh

Champlnnshlp After a Great Race.
The annual fall regatta of the Columbia Uni
versity Bowing Olub developed some sensa
tional results on the Hudson Bivnr yester
day afternoon The second race of the
series, botweon the sophomores, juniors,
and seniors, proved to be, as all the old
oarsmen present agreed, one of the greatest
college orew races ever rowed tn this
vicinity. For the whole distance, three
quarter, of a mile, only onco was there
clear water between any of the boats. This
eras at the finish. The winning crew, last
year' Saratoga freshman eight led tho juniors
by about two feet. The juniors' bow was about
a yard ahead of the nose of the seniors' boat.
No tlmo was taken, but it Is th consensus of
opinion that the race was very fsst.
The regatta began nt about n-.'M) o'clock with
a race betwocn two freshman crows represent
ing the university proper and tho school of sp
plled science. Tho 'varsity men were small in
sIks. but they made up In rowing ability What
they, lacked In bulk. At the word from th
referee. Justus A. B. Cowlos. Inst yenr's conch.
the 'varsity lads jumped out. In limit. Tlicy
had a lead of n length In less than fifty strokes.
Aided by n strong current, they soon increased
this to two lengths. They won by alxiul throe
and a half langtbH. The race was rowed in
barges. Tho make-up of the crews follows:
Vanity Stroke, Bmdley; 7, Johnson: n. Irving;
5, Fiak; 4, Keller: .1. Colin: 2, Stewart; bow. .lacks m.
School of Applied Science-Stroke, Williamson; 7,

Auerny: 2, Pemoline; lmw. Bateaon.
Tho three other oliis crews had meantime
lined up at 13()fh street. When they got word,
the sophomores had tho outsldo. the juniors
tin1 middle, and the seniors the inside course.
For an eighth of a mllo I hero was scarcely n
foot between tho bows of the boats. Attn Is
point the sophomores pulled out their boat
till lis body was just in front of the ju
niors. In nn instant the juniors snot
by and led, by about ten foot, un
til the luilf-inlle point waa reached. Hero
they dropped back. It looked then as though
the seniors nnd sophs would fight it alone, but
the HnratogA freshmen were stronger, nnd thfy
gradually drew away. They hail just shown
the upper classmen their stern when the
juniors made a splendid spurt. Their bow
brushed up just pnst the seniors, but they could
not catch the flying freshmen. Boyesen, (bo

Proposed Consolidation of the Knicker
bocker aud New Jersey A. Cs.
It leaJicd out yesterday that thero Is a pros
pect ol the Knickerbocker A. C. and the New
Jersey A. 0. consolidating. The plan for the
amalgamation has been known to be tn the
minds of prominent members .of both or
ganizations for at loast n year, but it was only
on Thursday last that any action which could
bo construed as a step in tha direction of con
solidation was taken. This was tho nomination
of James E. Sullivan for tho Presidency of
the Knickerbocker A. C. Sullivan Is now
President of tho New Jersey A. C, and ho
been renominated for tho office If the
two clubs continue to exist as separate organi
sations, they will naturally be rivals In track
and field sports. His nomination for the Presi
dency of the Knickerbocker A. 0. therefore can
mean only one of two things, that he intends
to leave the New Jersey organization or else
the two clubs will in the future go hand In hand.
The advantages of such a union arc obvious.
The Knickerbocker A. 0. owns a palatial club
house and enjoys a large membership, but has
no grounds whereby it can provide the re
quisites for exercise and training which
,tno nature of the club renders necos
sary. On the other hand, the New Jersey or
ganization owns one df the best situated
and equipped athletlo grounds in this vicin
ity, but lacks the large membership which
would enable) the club to put Its grounds
to adequate use and defray the expenses of
running such a large plant. Under the skilful
guidance of President Sullivan the drawback
of a meagre membership roll has been offset
for years by the Profit yielded at the games
held by the club. A series of disappointments
has. however, placed the New Jersey A. 0, In a
tight place, and tho proposed union would ex
tricate It from all difficulties.
The only officer who could b found at the
Knickerbocker A. 0. last night was Capt. James
J. Frawley. When questioned by a reporter of
Thk. Sun he said that no official action had
boon taken toward the consolidation of the two
olubs and that such a move would oomc before,
the Board of Governors, of which he was not a
member. Speaking of the possibilities of the
scheme he ssld:
" I should like to see such a thing take place.
It would prove an undoubted advantage to
both clubs snd would place In tho field a
worthy rival of the New York A. 0."
The election of offleers of the Knickerbocker
A. C. will take place on Nov. 21. Sullivan, if
elected, will be tho first President under the
new regime, which allows the government of
the club by the members instead of by a
directorate appointed by the owners. It is
probable that the plan of consolidation will be
submitted to the New Jersey A. C. at the
annual meeting noxt month.

early hour this morning at the Btanton House,
In this city, and ws tn session almost con
tinually throughout the day. Among the.
first witnesses examined. were Major Oomegys,
In charge of the medlonl department at Camp
Thomas, and Lieut. Arrowsmith. chief of tho

lacking being tents. The most sensational
testimony Introduced was when the cat of
Major Hubbard. Burgeon of tho Ninth New

Boyd snd others testified that Major Hubbard

The death of Sergeant Frank of the Ninth
New York Regiment was made a subject of
particular inuuiry. and in that connection
Clinttauooga physicians complained of the dis
courtesy of Dr. Hubbard of the Ninth New
York. The principal charges were made by
T)r. O. A. Baxter, a railroad surgeon of Chat
tanooga. Ho swore that Rergeant Frank was
hit by a negro and knocked under a passing
engine at, Clint tanooga. He waa badly
wounded and was tsken into the depot operat
ing room, where several surgeons attended
him. One leg and ono arm were crushed off,
and there was a large contusion on the head.
llo was unconscious snd suffering consider
ably from shock. While the wounded man
was in the room at the depot. Dr. Hubbard ap
pearcd and demanded: "Where Is the railroad
surgeon?" Dr. Baxter Introduced himself,
and. according to his testimony. Dr. Hubbard
exclaimed: "Why don't yoj do something for
this man? Nothing has been done with him.
His life can bo saved, and nothing Is being
done for him. I'll assume charge of this man
aud get him where I can operate on him and
save his life."
Dr. Baxter said ho had remonstrated with
Dr. Hubbard against removing the injured
man, but as he persisted in his course he tried
to got the man to a hotel. The hotels refused
to receive him. and Dr. Hubbard declared he
would take Frank to Camp Thomas. Dr. Bax
ter stated that he cautioned Dr. Hubbard that
to remove Frank would cause hts death, but,
disregarding ths warning, he had the provost
guard hold up a train and Frank was placed
on board. He died before reaohlng Chloka
mnugn. The physicians quarrelled, and the
Chattanooga doctor preferred charge against
Dr. Hubbard, but no aotlon wiu token by the
Capt. Daniel Lee McCarthy. Assistant Quar
termaster at Camn Thomas, testified to th
administration of the Quartermaster's De
partment at Chlokamauga. and wa followed
by Mr. E. K. Betts. engineer of th Chloka
mnugn Park Commission.
I.ieut lArrowHinltrusald that the inexperience
of many of the officers, lack ol discipline, and
utter disregard for the principles of sanitation
were, in his opinlon.responslble for much of the
sickness. Kinks were not cored for. and while
In the daytime th air was foul. t night it was
even worse. He had predicted that sickness
would follow the condition at Camp Thomas.
Chicknmauga, he believed, was a natural
camping ground, but men oould not keep from
being ill who were under the trees away from
the sun. where the ground wo mouldy and
dump, and where filth prevailed. He saw regi
ments for two months to two snd a half
months encamped undr the trees, snd in that
timethey never took down a tent to air the
ground and dry it He saw men sleeping on the
ground, when old soldiers within half an hour
wouldlhave had someZklnd otonstructlon rais
ing them from the ground.
"Whose' dutVrwas it to see that tents were
taken down and the ground eared for?" asked
"Regimental and company commanders,
sir' was the response.
He explained that there waa very little dis
cipline ut Camp Thomas and orders were not
"Was it not the duty of the commanding
General to see that his subordinate command
ers curried out his orders?"
"In a general way. but Gen. Brooke was s
very busv man. preparing for the campaign in
Forto Ulco, and he had to depend on his subor
dinates." "Did the commanding officer ever issue any
order calling attention to the condition of the
camp?" Imiuireii Col. biexton.
"I don't itnow."
"When regiments arrived," Col. Hexton con
tinued, "could they camp where they pleased
or were they assigned to places by the com
manding OaneralV "
"I think," replied Lieut. Arrowsmith. "that

Dr. Connor inquired if the commanding Gen

bility devolves oa the commanding General.
but it was Impracticable for one man to look
out, entirely for Bo.OOQ men,"
"What k ind of a staff did Gen. Brooke have?"
"Gen. Mlierlilan was his Adjutant, Col. Hart
suit Chief Medical Director, and Col. iHloh
ardi Chief Inspector-General."
The staff department was prttty well
broken up to make Brlgadlor-Gnrala, was it
not?" remarked Gen. Beaver.

for typhoid fevur when they were suffering
from pneumonia. He did not substantial
these, charge this afternoon and remarked
thaOie did not know of any netrltot of pa
tients. He was asked by Dr. Connor if his x
perlence warranted him In saying that a cer
tain man died of pneumonia instead of typhoid
fever, lie inuulred, "Am 1 talking for news-
riaper publication?" andlbeing Informed that
lis testimony would cause him no harm, an
swered: "I don't know that it would." He
thought some of his charges were a little too
strong and asked to be allowed to modify
them. He did so by withdrawing the charge
in question. H Insisted that physicians were
employed ut ths hospital who had little expe
rience, and when his attention waa directed
to that part of his letter tn whleh lit said

Introductory Concert of the New York Or
chestra. Bo long as several different musical organi
sations are earnestly hoping, evon devoutly
praying, that they maybe continuously called
npon to plav boforo Now York audiences, it
hardly sooms to be of signal importance
whether thero is a " permanent orchestra" or
not in this city. That there Is splendid
material hero to draw from in forming un
orchestra, every leader will cheerfully attest.
There arc enough talented, cultivated and re
liable musicians in this great town of ours to
form two or three permanent orchestras, pro
vided tho necessity forthem were felt. This fact
was amply testified to last evening by the as
tonishingly good work done by Mr. Paur's band
of players. A comparative fewlruhearsals. filled,
however, with patient thorough drill and
earnest endeavor guided by oomprehonsive
and adequate method, have sufficed to bring
results that give not only splendid present
effects, but that promise grand achievements
In tho future. The " Overture to Frelsehutz "
which opened lost evening's concert was re
markable for the smooth polish of its
rendering and for the sympathetic warmth
that brought all the beautiful romance
of Weber's charming composition into distinct
view. Nor was Beethoven's "Erolca" sym
phony less admirably done. This as well as the
rest evinced clear thought and clever design
on the conductor's side and willing obudienun
coupled with thorough ability on tho part of
the Mad. ,
It was a romantic programme on the whole,
for oertalnly the "Freischutz" and the " Ser
enade " for strings both come well under that
description, and Beethoven's third symphony
I more free ana lmaslnatlve than some other
of his compositions. But tho most modern.
the most interesting, and the most ingenious
of all the music that was offered to' the
audience at this concert wss the "Capriccio
Espagnol " by the now famillariBusslan com
poser. Blmsky-Eorsakoff. This suite was
performed here on the present occasion for
the first time. It Is opus 34 of the writer's
works, with five movements which are
so connected as to sound like an un
broken one. The orchestration of this
marvellous niece is quite worthy of Berlioz, the
Spanish character is strongly marked, and yet
the Russian peculiarities and wildness threaten
Itnd peep out continually. It Is a most spark
ing ana exciting bit of tone-color, or. to use
another simile. It bears a piquant and racy
flavor that is uellclously welcome to a jaded
musical palate. Klmsk y-Korsakoff paints In
gorgeous tints, and in this regard reminds one
of Grlcg, tho Norwegian composer. Ho keeps,
too. iu Els travels, like Grieg, well up upon the
heights, among cheerful sunbeams.
Herr l'aur made the judicious glad lust night
in many ways. He is a most magnetic leader,
one whose warmth of nature snd strong en
thusiasm are balanced by fine common sense
and broad-minded solid judgment. New York
has gained a prlre in the acquisition of so able
and gifted a man.
