YALE WAS NOT IN IT
The Great Eight-Oared Uni
versity Boat Race.
Won by the Harvard Crew to
the Surprise of All.
The Yale Men Were Badly Rattled
Prom the Start.
All Sorts of Excuses Trumped Cp for
Their Crushing Defeat -Exciting; Inci
dents During the Progress of
Associated Press Dispatches.
New London, June 26.—The sixteenth
annual four-mile eight-oared boat race
between the Yale and Harvard univer
sity crews was rowed this noon over the
Thames course from Winthrop point to
Gatte's ferry, and was won by Harvard
in eleven lengths; time, 21:23; Yale's
Harvard's victory was the biggest sur
prise in college athletics for many years.
Good judges of rowing conceded the race
to Yale almost to a man, and owing to
this sentiment in favor of Yale, stacks
ol money left at the pool rooms went un
covered, even at odds of 100 to 60.
HARVARD TOOK THE LEAD
at the start and forged ahead with a
rush. As their shell went ahead, the
crimson supporters on the observation
train and innumerable steamers
became frantic with excitement. As the
excitement spread, some very reckless
work was done by steamboat captains.
That there were two collisions and no
serious results was simply a matter of
good luck. Two miles up the river the
tug boat Gypsy ran into the side of the
press boat'"the shock throwing twenty
five or thirty people off their feet. At
the finish, where the channel was
crowded with all sorts of craft, the press
boat, in trying to avoid a collision with
the Rhode Island, struck the tug Amer
ica, knocking many people sprawling
over the deck. Fortunately no one was
THE SCENES AT THE FINISH
were of a most exciting character, the
Harvard men being wild with joy,
while tne thousands of Yale supporters
were decidedly crestfallen over their
unexpected defeat. The scenes along
the river were of an unusually brilliant
and lively character. An observation
train of thirty-five cars carried an im
mense crowd", while at least seventy
five steamers and steam and sail yachts
followed the crews over the course or
lav in desirable positions. The west
bank was also crowded with sight-seers.
Promptly at 11:30 the crews came
down the river toward the stake boats.
Harvard backed into position a minute
late, and tbe Vales soon after.
PROGRESS OK THE RACK.
When the crews were given the word,
Harvard caught it first, and setting the
fast stroke of forty to the minute at once
pushed tbe bow of their boat slightly in
front. Yale started with thirty-eight
strokes. For a few strokes both crews
caught the swell and splashed quite
badly, then settling down, each crew
gave a pretty exhibition of rowing; the
Harvards, however, clearly sending
the boat aiong at a better speed than
they had ever shown in practice, were
gradually creeping away from Yale.
Yale's work on the other hand was
much inferior to that seen in their daily
At the half mile Harvard led by a
clear length. All during the second
half, Harvard continued to gain. Here
the steamers crowded in on the boats
and the swell caused both to do some
ragged work for a few strokes. Nearing
the mile flag Harvard increased her lead
to nearly three lengths. From the mile
to the mile and a half, Harvard contin
ued to gain and it became a question by
how many lengths Harvard would de
HARVARD STILL FORGING AHEAD.
In the next half the Harvards, by
Btrong and steady work, increased their
lead to nearly six lengths. The Vales'
boat continued to settle and hang, and
it was now a procession.
Just after passing the navy yard the
tug Lassie got squarely into Harvard's
course, and they were obliged to make a
wide swerve. Yale, however, profited
by this incident, and Harvard getting
back into hercourse, continued to widen
the gap between their boat and Yale.
At two and a half miles, Harvard had
gained an additional three lengths,
and after passing the three and a half
mile flag, they had a good lead of ten
THE FINAL SPURT.
Both crews now settled down for the
final spurt, and here again Harvard
showed superiority in every way over
the New Haven crew. Both crews did
excellent work, but the Harvard shell
continued to show a steady gain, and
they passed the finish pulling forty
strokes a minute, while Yale, eleven
lengths behind, lowed thirty-seven.
The Harvard crew rowed at once to
their quarters, and Yale paddled up to

CAUSE OF VALE'S DEFEAT.
The cause of Yale's unexpected and
overwhelming defeat, is found in the
fact that two of her men, the two most
important in the boat, Stroke Gould
and Hagerman, No. 7, were not equal
to the occasion, and lost their heads.
As Harvard began to increase their lead
near the end of the first mile
Gould cut his strokes short
and pulled with diminished effect.
The rest of the crew, instead of keeping
time with Gould, followed Hagerman's
stroke. After a while Hagerman became
rattled, the result being that for the
greater part of the race the
men in the waist and bow
followed the stroke of Cap
tain Brewster. The difference in
Bwing of the men was slight, but enough
to cause Yale's boat to hang perceptibly
after each stroke, and to settle so badly
aft that the bow frequently was out of
the water for three or four feet. Both
crews were also greatly annoyed by the
swell from the bigsteamers thatfollowed
In Bpeaking of this point George Adee,
a well-known Yale man, expressed him
aelf most emphatically, and declared
that Yale ought not to row another race
over the Thames' course. A number of
other Yale men declared that Yale's
crushing defeat was due simply to the
fact that they were outrowed by Har
The Harvard crew came down the
river at 4 p. m., and, headed by the
standard-bearers carrying the two flags
they won in today's race, went to the
Pequot house, where they were tonight

him that the interstate commerce com
mission had been notified of the Alton's

practices with mileage tickets, etc. He
adds : "We hold in reserve the right to
make a rate of $5 from St. Louis to Chi

contingent upon the behavior of ourcom
petitors. After the warning, if- they
fail to reform, we shall have to apply

NO USE FOR A PILOT.
An Old Sea Captain Mistakes

the Golden Gate.
The Result Was That His Vessel
Struck on the Bar.

Associated Press Dispatches.
San Francisco, June 26.—The ship
Palestine, from Tacoma, struck on the
bar this morning and was sunk. The
crew were saved.
She was commanded by Captain Mc-
Cartney, was a vessel of 1400 tons, and
was nine days out from Tacoma, with
2500 tons of coal for the Southern Pa
cific company. A big hole was knocked
in her bottom, and she sank an hour
after striking, in thirteen fathoms of
water. Only the tops of her masts are
As soon as it was seen that she must
go down, Captain McCartney ordered
the boats lowered, and all aboard,
twenty-one in number, embarked safely,
as the sea was quite calm at the time
and the weather clear. The tug Wise
acre towed the shipwrecked sailors into
The Palestine's captain, Thomas Mc-
Cartney, who has been in the coasting
trade for many years, said: "I have
been in and out over the bar right there
lots of times, and I can't understand
how this happened. The weather was
as clear as a bell. There was a pilot
boat near me, but coasters don't take
pilots, and I have no need of one. The
tug Wizard spoke me and wanted to tow
me in, but it was clear and tht wind was
fair, and I told him I didn't want a tow.
The ship was'right in the main channel
where I knew there were thirty-three
feet of water. We were drawing twenty
four feet. The shock was a lively one,
and the ship began to rill forward imme
diately. The Wizard came back after
we struck and took us in tow to try and
pull us in, but couldn't do anything as
the ship settled rapidly. I got the boats
over and the men went into them. The
Wizard had to let go and the ship
drifted outside. The tug stayed by the
ship till she sank. She was then about
a mile and a half outside the bar. She
went down in about thirteen fathoms,
and just her three topgallant masts are
now above water. The sea was com
paratively calm when we struck. It
was clear all about us, but hazy in
toward the shore."
Tbe Palestine was built in Bath, Me.,
in 1877, and was owned by Captain
Samuel Blair of this city. She was 209
feet long, 40 feet depth and 24 feet
breadth; valued at about $45,000. So

sel amounted to but $15,000. The cargo
