Yesterday nas an off day for the Sen
ators and Manager Irwin was afforded an
opportunity to meditate undisturbed over
toe poor showing recently made by his
team and to devise wajs and means of
strengthening his aggregation and recov
ering the ground lost since the Senators
left this city for their 'Western tour. The
trip has been a remarkable one, but no
one has yet suggested the hiring of a
brass band to welcome the club on its re
turn. The continued losing streak has not been
relished by the local fans, but a few
games won will square matters. The Sen
ators will begin a series of four games
with the Reds at Cincinnati this afternoon,
and on Monday, July 3, they will play
Boston in this city.

JENNINGS TO PLAY FIRST.
McGanu AVI 11 He Permitted to Warm
the IMnj eiH Bench.
Pittsburg, June 27. The loss of ;hree
out of four games at Chicago and an off
day on the train for reflection gave Ned
Hanlon time to get out his hammer. It
fell on JIcGann, who will gie way to
Hughey Jennings in tomorrow's game.
Jennings will make his debut on first base
with the Brooklyn club and McCann will
warm the bench.
Reach and Rogers, of the Philadelphia
club, hae made overtures to Hanlon for
Jennings. It was their Intention to put
him on first. McGann has been plaing
well up to the standard and has been hit
ting fairly well. Hanlon's chief reason
for making the change is to get Jennings
In the game.
HARVARD TURNS THE TABLES.
The buna of Old El Ilenten on Their
New Haien, Conn, June 27. Harvard
turned the tables on Yale today and beat
her at baseball on her own grounds, and
on the day of her annual clas3 reunions,
by the score of 4 to 3. At no time during
the game was Harvard headed. Her team
started out in the first inning with three
runs, and got another In the third, while
Yale did not score until the sixth, when
she scored two, and Cook's homer in the
ninth made the only other tally on the
side of the Blue. The Harvard men seem
ed to have the faculty of hitting when hits
meant runs, and they were aided In their
run getting at the same time by the wild
ness of Robertson and the errors of the
local team. Yale bad men on bases In ev
ery inning, except the second, but was
unable to bit the ball at the right time.
There was a smaller crowd present than
usual at these annual contests. The score:

THE A. A. C. DEFEATED.
3loement on I'ool to Clinntre the
The team from Congress Heights defeat
ed the American Athletic Club at National
Park yesterday afternoon by the score of
9 to 5. For the first two innings the con
test was exciting, but the Congress Heights
aggregation, soon gained a lead that the
Athletics found impossible to ocrcome
and the game then lost Interest. 'Wahler
pitched good ball and was well supported
by his team. Clifford was wild and erratic
and bis team fielded miserably.
There is a movement on foot at present
to drop the American Athletic Club and
the Congressional from the league and
admit in their stead teams from the Dis
trict Commissioners' Office and the Gov
ernment Printing Office. It is contended
that this will be a good move, as both the
American Athletic Club and the Congres
sional are very weak, and at present It
would seem that they stand a ery poor
chance of winning any games at all. The
Commissioners' Office and the Printing Of
fice ha-vc teams that would make a credita

ternoon will be between the City Postofllce
and the Congressionals. The score:

Poughkeepsie, N. Y., June 27. What was
probably the most sensational boat race
ever seen in America was rowed oer the
Hudson River's four-mile course this af
ternoon, while thirty thousand persons
looked on in simple wonderment. The
University of Pennslanla Varsity, com
posed mostly of cterans who triumphed
over Cornell at Saratoga Lake last ear,
proved victorious, but only by a bare half
length oer the Unherslty of Wisconsin's
eight, which proved a big surprise from
the ery start. The Badgers, who had
been rather generally overlooked by the
talent since their arrival, rowed in mag
nificent form for three miles and a half,
leading the procession down the river in
majestic style. But toward the close
Penn8lvanla, with the experience and also
the superior physical training, increaseJ
the power in their shell and slowly over
hauled the Westerners. It was a half mile
from the final stakeboat that the cox
swain of the Wisconsin crew lost his bear
ings and steered away out of the proper
course. Incidentally numbers 3 and 4, In
the Wisconsin boat, caught fatal "crabs"
or Jumped their slides, accidents which
were directly responsible for their defeat-When
the two leaders crossed the finish
line there was so little difference between
them from the spectator's standpoint that
nobody could tell which had won. Cornell
was a sore disappointment to her sup
porters. The Ithaca crew did well for
half the distance, but the killing pace set
by the leaders took all the steam out of
them and they were beaten oft worse than
ever before. They were three and a half
lengths behind the Wisconsin boat at the
end, all plugged out. Columbia's crew was
even more of a disappointment than Cor
nell's. The men were never In the hunt,
rowed poorly, and dropped back so swiftly
after two miles had been rowed that their
shell seemed to be loaded with pig Iron.
They were easily eight lengths in the wake
of Cornell and were in dire distress at that.
The race was rowed under perfect condi
tions. The water was as smooth as could
be desired. There was no wind and a
good ebb tide when the final start was
made. There was a provoking delay be
fore the shells were sent away, however,
which caused no end of grumbling. The
Jockeying and scheming of tho coaches for
supposed advantages was the sole cause
of the trouble. The race could have been
started at G o'clock sharp under the best
of conditions, but the eights were not
ready until nearly an hour after that.
Then they moved slowly to quarters, ana
there were two false breaks, before they
got away for keeps.
The Inl.c StnrtM.
These poor starts were due to protests
first by Wisconsin and then by Columbia,
after all the crews had left the marks.
According to the rules, if protests are
made before ten strokes have been pulled
the crews must be called back and started
over again. In each instance the rule was
taken advantage of and all of the eights
had to begin again. Wisconsin for three
miles at least showed the best waterman
ship on the river. The crew was made up
of big, brawny men, who showed undoubted
strength. That fact was credited long ago
by a veteran who looked the crew over,
but when they began rowing with a superb
sweeping stroke, cleanly pulled through,
with a great, long drive and a sharp
though not jerky recovery, it was appre
ciated that Coach JlcConvilie had worked
wisely and well. The pace set by Wiscon
sin was a killer, but it did not kill the
Badgers at all. When they had completed
their Journey not one of them collapsed.
Had the Wisconsin coxswain steered prop
erly the race would have been decided by
a few feet instead of a half length, and at
that It would have been in doubL
The official time of the winning crew
was 20 04, while Wisconsin's time was
20:05 1-2, Cornell's 20:13, and Columbia's
20.20. By these figures It can be readily
appreciated what might have happened
had the Wisconsin men followed the reg
ular course and rowed cleanly to the end.
The crowd on hand was the largest that
has ever been seen here. Fully 30,000 per
sons looked down upon the four shells as
they came down the gleaming river. They
were on foot, on sailing and steam craft,
on the cars, on the hillsides, and even
on top of the lofty bridge. The railroad
accommodations for visitors were Inade
quate, and especially for those who came
up from New York. Beyond these un
pleasant features the management was
good, although the coaches should have
been compelled to get. the crews to the
starting line sooner than they did.
At C:30 but one crew, Pennsylvania, was
In sight and another quarter of an hour
passed. Then the four captains were ask
ed if they were ready. AH of them said
yes and then the referee fired his pistol.
Cornell had the outside, with Columbia
next, Pennsylvania third, and Wisconsin
holding the Inside position nearest the
shore. Hardly were they off when at a
signal from their stroke the Badgers
stopped rowing and the others followed
suit. As one of the Wisconsin men bad
slipped from his sliding seat his captain,
under the rules, had a legal right to call
for another start.
At 7 o'clock precisely another start was
made. The shells had scarcely gotten un
der way when Columbia's stroke raised his
hand and his men stopped rowing, this
time because a steamer was coming down.
The Mnrt of the Itnee.
The pistol cracked for the third time
at 7:10. This time there were no mishaps
and the crews bore away to an even start.
As the first 100 yards were covered the.
Wisconsin men, rowing with the style
and skill of veterans, gradually shot ahead
and by the quarter mile mark were a full
length to the good, while Pennsylvania
had an advantage of a few yards over the
Ithacans. It was at the half mile flag that
Cornell's representatives made their first
real effort. The Quakers had to give way
and the Badgers had their lead cut down
to a quarter of a length. . Suddenly the
Wisconsin men took in the situation at a
glance and spurted, but without hitting
up the stroke. But Cornell was out for
business and got their prow almost on
even terms with Wisconsin's. It was nip
and tuck as the three-quarter mile mark
flashed by. Cornell was perhaps three
ards ahead for a moment, after which
tho big Westerners went to the front again,
with Columbia and the Quakers close up.
Cornell's lead was only momentary, how
ever, and the Badgers soon regained their
place. It seemed as if the Wisconsin crew
was going to make a run-away race of It
as they bore down the mile and a half.
They opened up a clean length ahead of
Cornell and made the pace so fast that
tho Ithacans were unquestionably tired.
This was the very thing looked for by
tho Quakers, who now hit the stroke up to
thirty-six and began to overhaul tho pupils
of Courtney until second place became the
property of Ellis Ward's proteges.
At two miles the Wisconsin's eight had
a length to spare. Pennsjlvanla had a
quarter of a length on Cornell nt this
stage, but the Ithacans were ready to spurt
once, more and their shell began to gain
on the Quakers
At the two and one-half mile mark the
Quakers were three-quarters of a length
ahead of Cornell. The latter were beaten
here, and the crowd began to see it.
"Look at that box floating In the water,"
yelled a man with glasses. He pointed to
a black object that was directly In the
path of the Wisconsin crew. It looked
as if it would interfere with the shell or
tbo oars, but the coxswain steered wide
of it aad It passed by within a foot or so
of the tips of the oars: It was this ob
stacle, an orange crate, that was blamed
later by the coxswain! for losing his course.
The real race of the'day now began.
Pennsy's FnnltlyHN Stroke.
Wlta a stroke that was faultless the
Phlladelphians set out. to catch the flying
Western men in therlast mile If possible.
Pennsjlvania at once began to show tho
fruits of a spurt, jeanwhlle Wisconsin's
coxswain had steered the shell complete
ly out of the lino to "be followed by tho
crews to the finish and In order to keep
out of the way of a number of small bolts
was compelled to follow a line that car
ried the Badgers to the west of one of the
stakeboats by at least fifty jards. Over In
the regular lane the Quakers were tow
ing thirty-six strokes to the minute
There was a half-mile yet to be lowed and
the Wisconsin men had about three-quarters
of a length lead. But the Philadelphia
crew was at its best now, and the m.u
were equal to the emergency. Suddenly
those who were watching the Wisconsin
shell cried out In exclamations of surprise.
No. 4 and No. 3 were seen to catch crabs
and the water splashed five feet in the
air: These crabs put the whole crew out
of gear for the moment, but the Badgers
pulled themselves together and got back
into the old swing with surprising quick
ness. They were now darting along among
small boats which seemed In Imminent
danger of drifting Into their course.
With but a quarter of a, mile left the
Quakers had cut the lead down to a bare
half length and were going like the wind.
Again the two men In the Wisconsin shell
caught crabs and again there was slight
confusion among the Badgers. This set
back proved the deciding point in the dash
to the finish, far before regular order could
be restored in the shell the Quakers had
shot ahead and were perhaps ten feet to
the good. Down the finish the crews
rushed, Pennsylvania on the proper course
and Wisconsin on the outside. But no
body except those close enough to the fin
ish to see could tell who was really ahead.
From the train it looked like a dead heat.
The Quakers shot over the finish line and
stopped, all of them sitting up in the boat.
The Badgers, however, were urged ahead
and continued through the maze of row
boats at least 100 yards farther before they
stopped. Cornell, still game, but beaten,
crossed the line third, at least three and a
half lengths back, while Columbia, rowing
llko a lot of schoolboys, brought up the
tall-end of the procession.
"Who won? Who won?" was the cry all
along the line. Some said Pennsylvania
and others were willing to swear that Wis
consin got to tho line first. Everybody
was In doubt. The referee had three guns
fired, which, according to the official pro
gramme, meant that it was Pennsjlvanla'i

New York, June 27. The racing at
Sbeepshead Bay todaj was full of incident,
which, however, brought little consolat.oa
to backers of favorites, as only two firt
choices rewarded their followers. There
was a good attendance and the weather
and track conditions were almost fault
less. Chief interest centered In the handi

TRIAL OF TI1E COLUMBIA.
The Xew Cup Defender llnmlll Out
Hiiilv the OIiI Ch mn pi on.
Newport, IL I., June 27. The ColumbH
and Defender left the harbor this morning
for a brush on the ocean course. They
were followed by a large number of craft,
all crowded with enthusiastic yachtsmen
who were anxious to see how the new cup
defender would compare with the old. The
conditions were all that could be desired
for the first contest of the new sloop.
From the landlubber's point of view it
was a beautiful day for the trial. The at
mosphere was as clear as on a bright day
in winter, and perched on Bateraan's Point
or on the hills overlooking Fort Adams a
spectator could sco almost across to Block
Island. From the yachtman's standpoint,
however, the conditions were not so favor
able. As the sun rose over the town tho
breeze which usually rises with it failed
to appear. Every now and then a few
gentle puffs would come down from the
northeast, but they were only puffs, scarce
ly enough to All the sails of the small
boats, and when what little breeze thero
had been shifted to the southeast it almost
Between 8 and 9 o'clock .almpst dead
calm lay over the harbor, but soon after
9 o'clock a little breeze sprang up. Pleas
ure craft then began to make for the
Columbia. She swung lazily at her an
chor, lying Just to the southwest of the
torpedo station, with the Defender moor
ed to the south and the warships of the
North Atlantic Squadron lying not far to
the north. With the freshening breeze,
preparations for getting both the Colum
bia and Defender under way were at once
begun. The cover was taken from the
Columbia's mainsail, and when everything
had been made ready the crew began to
hoist the huge mainsail. While this work
was in progress thestaysail and topsail
arrived from Bristol. In Sunday's trial
It was found that they did not set well
and they had been sent back to the
Herreshoffs to be recut.
Mr. Iselln and his friends, Herbert C.
Leeds and Capt. Woodbury Kane, spent
the night on board the tender St. Mich
aels. Mrs. Iselln, who was also on (he
tender, was taken ill last night. Physi
cians were summoned and she was all
right this morning. Mr. Iselln In speak
ing of the day's programme said:
"We shall go out for a brush with the
Defender and come back for luncheon.
Then, If the wind holds good, we shall
have another trial this afternoon."
Hoisting the Columbia's mainsail was a
signal which set ail those aboard the
pleasure craft in tho harbor astir. After
the. mainsail had been hoisted on the
Columbia her Jib and staysail were tun
up in stops, and at 10,25 o'clock her crew
gathered about the capstan and began to
pull upon the anchor chain Mr. Iselln,
Mr. Leeds, and Captain Kane had gone
aboard In their launch, and were watch
ing proceedings with interest. Mr. Iselln
walked up and down the deck giving orders
to Capt. Charlie Barr, who had the wheel.
Foot by foot the anchor chain came up,
and at 10:40 o'clock the Columbia filled
away and started for the open sea. Just
before she got under way the New York
Boat Club pennant was hauled down from
her topmasthead and replaced by Mr. Ise
Hn's private signals, the red and black
In the mean time Mr. W. Butler Duncan,
Jr , had boarded the Defender. Her main
sail was hoisted and her staysail run up,
and she ran before the wind down to a
position vvell astern of the new cup de
fender. In making for the ocean the two
boats had the wind dead against them.
The Columbia filled away on the port
tack, heading for the Dumplings. As soon
as the breeze filled her mainsail she broke
out her Jib and then her staysail. The Jib
wa3 inclined to flap in the wind, but the
stajsail filled superbly.
It had been recut to an eact fit, and in
perfection of set was a match for the main
sail. The breeze was blowing at the rate
of about eight knots an hour, and under it
the new cup defender went ahead at a fast
clip. The Defender had come about, ami
under mainsail, stajsail, and Jib was fol
lowing the Columbia as fast as she could.
The Columbia, however, outfooted her.
drawing ahead even in the preliminary
brush, slowly but surely.
The new boat went through the water
much cleaner than the old She curled up
under her lee bow a wave much smaller
than that tossed off by the Defender, and
scarcely a ripple was left astern. The
Herreshoffs had aimed to get an easy en
trance and run, and it was evident thit
they had succeeded At 1040 o'clock the
Columbia came about on the starboard
tack and stood for Castle Hill. She worked
as well on this beat as on the other. Her
Jib had in the mean time been rearranged
and it now filled beautifully. At 10 55
o'clock Captain Barr threw the wheel over.
The Columbia glided about in a twinkling,
being only twelve seconds In stays and
headed for Beaver Tail on the port tack
The Defender had set her working topsail,
but even with this extra spread of canvps
she was unable to equal the speed of the
Columbia, which every minute left her
There was greater significance than cp
peared on the surface in the turning over
of the sloop to C. Oliver Iselln, her man
aging owner, yesterday afternoon. In every
Horreshoff contract there Is a clause which
provides that no boat shall be handed over
to the owner until they are satisfied with
t and know that it will add to and not
detract from their fame. Therefore when
Mr. Iselln's colors were hoisted to the
topmast head yesterday and the achtlng
ensign was flung out from the stern, it
meant that Nat Herreshoff, the designer
and builder of the new cup defender. Lad
satisfied himself that she was all he had
expected her to be, that he was confident
that she was the fastest boat on this side
of the Atlantic, and a worthy sloop lo put
forward for the defence of the America's
