GRANDSTAND, BALLT SHANNON,
July ?.?The International automobile, race
for the James Gordon Bennett cup was
run to-day and won by Je.natzy, a. mem?
ber of the German team, who covered the
distance of 370 3-4 miles In six hour3,
thirty-six minutes and nlno seconds, in?
cluding this stops imposed by the regula?
tions. Two members of the French team
ran each other so close for second placo
that It will not be known until Friday
whether DeKnlff or Farmnn Is entitled
to the honor. Only one minuto divided
them, It is thought Ukely that'DeKnlrt's
claim to second place will bo upheld.
The most remarkable features of the
great race were Its practical Immunity
from serious accidents and the wretched
showing by the American team. At Bally
Shannon, which la the headquarter? for
the race, no news had been received to?
night of any ono being injured except
one of Uio contestants, the English crack.
Jarrott, and his chauffeur. Jarrott had
a miraculous escape from death, and now
lies with a. broken eollarbor.e and a badly
bruised body. Uis chauffeur also has a
fractured collarbone, besides a broken
leg Both, however, are doing well. The
accident occurred through the steering
gear of the favorite English car getting
out of order when going at full speed.
Instead of turning a corner, the automo?
bile ran straight Into the bank at tho
side of the road and was smashed clean
In two. How the occupants escaped death
Is more than they themselves can explain.
Stocks, another Englishman, had his cat
disabled through tho samo causa, but
was not hurt.
Baron De Caters, after making a splen?
did race, broke the axlo of his car, and
Foxhali Keene retired because of a sim?
ilar accident. Mocrs and Winter, of the
American team, both fr.iled to finish, ow?
ing to disarrangement of tho meclianlsm
of their cars, and Owen, the third mem?
ber of the team, only completed five out
of the seven laps of the race. Thus only
five out of twelve starters completed the
course. One of these?Edge, the holder of
the cup?came In long after tho race was
officially declared over.
Tho poor showing of the American com?
petitors is generally attributed to the ex?
cessive lightness of their cars.
All tile arrangements for the race
worked well, and the Irish peasants- to?
night are once more venturing on the
ronds, though with fearful eyes and keen
ears for the rear motors as they come
dewn the hill of Kildnre. The French?
men received some consolation in not
getting the cup by gaining the prize of?
fered by the Hon. ,T. Scott Montagne, M.
P.. to the team whoso members all fin?
The general opinion expressed hy the
British authorities, including the Earl of
Mayo and Henry Norman, M. P., Is that
the race was tho most successful ever
run, and Is likely to do much to remove
the antagonism towards similar contests
and motors In general.
Foxhali Keene, as one of the represent?
atives of Germany, had a good chance of'
coming in ?imongst tho leaders. Before
giving up he ran a risk which Is Ken?
erally described a? ono of the most daring
features in the history of motoring. Turn?
ing a corner on Hie second round, the
tires of Keene's machine were ripped up,
and while repairing them he noticed that
tho axle was giving way. Instead of stop?
ping, Keene drove a hundred miles at tho
rate of over sixty miles an hour, and
only drew up when the car became, almost
uncnnlrollnble. Then it was found that
the axlo was within the smnllest fraction
of an inch of being severed. Keene ad?
mitted that "It was as much like sitting
01: a box of dynamite as anything I havo
e\er tried, but It warf an awful pity I

(By Associated Press.)
NEWPORT, R. L, July S.-Thia after?
noon for the first tirria in tho history
of American ninety-iooters. a fatal acci?
dent occurred. Carl B. Olsen, a seaman
on tho old cup defender Columbia, and
cne of tho best men In the crew, was
washed from the bowsprit just before t*io
yacht reached the first turn in to-day's
race, and was drowned. Two other men,
who were out on the bowsprit with Ol?
sen snapping, the big jib topsail on the
sail, were washed Inboard by the sajna
sea that swept him away. Both man?
aged to get another hold on the bow?
sprit and -were quickly hauled on Cock
by members of the crew. Whim tho
Columbia lifted from the big wave into
which sho had plunged, Olsen was seen
almost at "the stem, clnginir to the bob
stay, but before assistance could be
given him the sloop dipped Into another
great comber and he waa not seen after?
Captain Miller, of the Columbia. Is of
opinion that Olsen was struck by the
overhang of the craft as H came smash?
ing down, and knocked Insensible. He
was a good swimmer, and tho fact that
he did not reappear after the yacht had
! swept over him causes the belief that
he sank Immediately after being hit by
the bow. Every effort was mada to
rescue the sa"or. without avail.
Mr. Morgan gave up the Fearch with
reluctance and f>ut of respect for the
dead man withdrew from the race and
headed, hack for Newport.
To-day's race was also marred by a
mishap to the Constitution. Soon after
the start sho carried away the jaws of
her gaff, and tho great steel spar, swing
| ing forward, buckled In the center, Tho
main sail was ripped clear across sev?

The Reliance received tho severest buf?

The sea was a terrific one for racing

moorings it was noticed that sho had a
big dent in the bronze plating close to
tho waterllne on the port bow. When
Mr. Jselln was ashed what caused tho
dent he replied that the waves had ham?
mered the metal In as tho craft beat to
There will bo no more racing for the

Several arrests were made by the sol?

the offenses was that of a young man
named Joo Wllkerson, who Is alleged to
have been caught In the act1 of placing
a torpedo on tho car track near tho cor?
ner of Ninth and Hull Streets, almost
within the shadows of the Pollco Court.
He was accompanied by a friend named
Junlus Lipscorab. Both were arrested by
Captain Sklpwlth's men and balled by

On tha other hand, there -were many
moro expressions of approval for such
action, for it was generally conceded that
had not tho military been In charge of
the situation there would have been much
disorder and possible violence..
Six men were arrested, and each ono
will have to explain himself In the May?
or's Court this morning.
The military set about their work In
a systematic ; and business-like manner,
and it was duo to this that there was so
little disorder. People on the streets wero
kept moving along, and no crowds were
permitted to collect. Bo thorough was
tho work of the soldiers that a number of

are also police commissioners, wero or?

was broken up.

the sentry went to headquarters, ono

proposed to give them to the publlo at
the Joint meeting1 of tho Common Coun?
cil and tho Board of Aldermen last night,
and would have done so but for the ob?

The 6treet railway situation conUsota
to improv?. ,Testardiay tha first car
crossed the James Into and through
Manchester, and others wore run up to
nearly midnight, both on the Hull Stroet
and Perry Street Unes, As forecast by
The Times-Dispatch, tha entry into t&lj
field was accomplished without casual?
ties of any kind, and with very llttla
disorder. Tha situation was well handled
by the local authorities, supplemented by.
the military, and with tho exception of '
two stray shots fired from the darkness
near Forest Hill Park and the throw?
ing of a few stones, under cover of dark?
ness, there was no other attempted vto
lence. It Is true the cars were not well
patronized and thero aro many strike
sympathizers In Manchester and suburbs.
That tho cars could bo operated therll
without the violence predicted In soma
quarters was demonstrated.
To Seven Pines.
Tho first car down was run out of tha
P Street barn to Seven Pines yesterday
morning In charge of Major Martin and
several olllcors from his headquarl.er'8
staff and a detail of soldiers, and after -
that cars were run all day. There was
no violence, no attacks on the cars any?
where. Only a few mild expressions of
disapproval on tho suburbs of tho city.
In <he country, where tho people have
been Isolated for a fortnight by reason of
tho cessation of car service, the pioneer
car was warmly wolcomed, handkerchiefs
being waved and other evidences of ap?
Altogether the day was a. very satis?
factory ona from tho standpoint of tho
company, and tho military authorities,
too, aro pleased that the situation shows
such Improvement. It Is now expected
that cars will bo run regularly over both
lines, with military protection, of course.
On many of the lines tho military pro?
tection seems merely a form, for there Is
not tha slightest disturbance, certainly
In the day time. This Is particularly
true of the Main Street Una.
Not Many Rioters.
While there ara many persons In tha
city in sympathy with the cause of the
strikers and willing to make sacrifices in
their behalf, It Is not to be Inferred that
all or any large proportion of these
are In favor of or would countenance
violence. A great many of the most ar?
dent of the strike sympathisers are as
unalteraby opposed to disorder and vio?
lence as any other ?citizens. They want
tho men who are out to win, if possible,
and they aro willing to walk or ride ia
any other vehicle to give substantial tes?
timony of their sympathy, and to reduc?
the revenues of the company with, tha
hope that It will thus bo compelled ultl- '
mntely to make terms with the strikers.
At all tho military headquarters tha
best of feeling Is reported by tha officers
as prevailing among tno people. Cer?
tainly tho residents of the various locali?
ties fraterniza In the best of feeling, and
there have been no clashes,and no un?
pleasantnesses of any kind. Major Not?
tingham, in charge of Fulton post, stated
yesterday to a reporter? "The people ar?f
very nice, kind and considerate In every
way, and have caused us very little trou- .
ble." That statement la about an epi?
tome of conditions In all tha suburbs
where the military are quartered.
One Man Back at Work.
Tha air Is full of rumors as to tha end
of tho Btrlke, but they can be traced to
no substantial foundation. The Peters?
burg correspondent states that one of tho
striking car men in that city went back
to work yesterday, and stated In doing
so that he regarded the stlrka as ended.
Whether his example will be followed
by any of the other? remains to be seen.
One of tha reports in circulation yes?
terday was that tha strike would end
Saturday, and that an agreement between
tho strikers and the company would be
reached whereby tha men would return
to work at a small advance on tha old
scale. So far as could bo leaarned there
Is no substantial foundation for tha re.
port. Tha company gives no Indication
of yielding In any respect whatever, it?
terms are briefly that men who desire to
return to work may apply to the com?
pany, and that whatever vacancies In the
corps of employes remain unfilled will
filled by the old men on tha twelve h
day programme at ?2 per day. That ?,i
the plan on which all man are now being
On the other hand, tha men as an or?
ganization give no Indication of yielding
tha struggle. If they hava any such in?
tention they do not admit it. and on the
other hand strenuously deny it. Last
night two members of the union became
Involved In an altareatlon as a result of
a rumor that two of the men on strike
had applied to the company for positions
and in the encounter ono of the men was
dangerously cut. This shows the degree
of feeling prevailing on tha subject
among tho men.
A statement was made last night that
something would ba dona Saturday, but
Just what was not foreshadowed by the
speaker, who, though not a member of
the car men's union, Is prominent In ajj.
affiliated organization. Just what he
meant ha did not specify. These are
specimens of the rumors afloat.
At least one well known trades unionist
has publicly expressed tho Qnititon that
tha men should now abandon the strug?
