CAPE TOWN June 27 The Boer in
vaders under Malan and Smit about 303
attacked Richmond early on
Tuesday morning The town was defended
by a detachment of the North Stafford
shire militia under Captain Hawkshaw
and the town guard Three sangars oi
eide of the town were cvaptured by
the Boers the garrison being distributed
between the jail fort and Flagstaff
Kill fort Owing to the capture of tho
sangars the Flagstaff Hill fort was ex
posed to a heavy fire
Three times during the day Com
mandant Malan sent messengers demand
ing the surrender of the town and each
time the demand was refused The Boers
took advantage of the opportunity during
the cessation of hostilities to better their
positions and on the last occasion when
the messenger was sent in a party of
burghers entered the town and effected
the capture of a sangar in Market Square
Not a shot was fired on account of the
white flag carried by the messenger
The Boers who were now only two hun
dred yards from the jail fort were se
curely covered and directed a continuous
fire for two hours upon the defenders
who stoutly held the position Finding
It impossible to capture either the jail
fort or Flagstaff Hill Fort the Eoers
turned their attention to another sangar
in the town which was held by eight men
These eight men after having held the
position for eleven hours surrendered at
B oclock in the afternoon
After dark the British garrison strength
ened the fortifications as they expected a
renewal of the attack in the morning
During the night however the Boers
learned that relief for the besieged men
was approaching and withdrew They
captured twelve horses and looted the
stores
The engagement lasted twelve hours
The Boer loss is reported as five killed
and seven wounded The British casual
ties are not given

ambiguity of the language of the de

nials it is understood the Ministers will
consent that the chairs which will be used
when they are conveyed to audiences with
the Emperor shall bear the imperial col
ors instead of being imperial chairs This
means really the same thing as the im

The Ministers are firm however in their
insistence that they shall be carried to
the entrance of the reception building

n Mishap nml Arrives in the Rear
June 27 The in
habitants of this town and tho neigh
borhood are celebrating the race as a
great fete Many thousards assembled at
the arrival post long before the earliest
contestant was due Thousands more
went to the country to meet competitors
Stands and triumphal arches had been
erected and military bauds entertnined the
people who wero waiting the arrival of
the racers The crowd continued to In
crease beyond all expectations throughout
the morning and the police arrangements
were Inadequate It began to be feared
that the coarse rould not be cleared when
the cars should come
Almost il the stroke of noon a cloud
of dust was seen at the top of a hill to
the eastward Then a car was beheld
rushing down at a speed far exceeding
that of an ordinary express train Two
minutes and twenty seconds later the
driver who was smothered with dust
and could not be recognized alighted
quickly to sign the register
The rfder was Fournler the winner of
the Parts Bordeaux race who In a Mors
car covered 2S2H miles in 8 hours and 23
minutes He was enthusiastically receiv
ed and the military band played the Mar
seillaise Fournler was rather excited
He said that the crowd that lfned the
road during the last forty miles was so
great that he constantly feared that there
would be a fatal accident
t
Twenty other cars arrived within the en
suing two hours and all the drivers were
cheered while the bands played The peo
ple kept up the enthusiasm throughout
the afternoon The civil and military au
thorities attended a banquet in the even
ing in honor of the racers and congratu
latory speeches were exchanged
The general commanding the garrison
spoke felicitously of the good influence
the race would have upon the feeling be
tween the two countries A great many
racers did not attend the banquet All
were fatigued and retired early for rest
in preparation for the run to Hanover to
morrow
It is claimed that Fournlers actual
racing time for the 2S2 miles was six
hours and fifty eight minutes the road
rules compelling him to slow dovn in
many towns and villages He Is already
a prize winner being entitled to the tro
phy by the Grand Duke of Luxembourg

THE PLEDGE GIVEN BY SCOTT
Evans Removal Promises by the
West Vireltiin Senator
Senator Scott of West Virginia is the
member of the National Committee who
gave the written pledge or what was con
strued as such to General Sickles that
Commissioner Evans should bo removed
from charge of the Pension Bureau Sen
ator Scott had a talk with the President
yesterday but it Is not known vhether
this subject was discussed
Commissioner Evans has made no re
ply to General Sickles comments on the
publication of his two letters highly com
mending Mr Evans conduct of the Pen
sion Bureau and may not do so at least
not at present The officials of the Pen
sion Bureau however make no secret Qt
the cause that led to the disagreement
between the Commissioner ahd General
Sickles They say that it dates from the
time about a year ago when the Com
missioner refused to accept the generals
construction of the law of May 9 1900
Commissioner Evans before construing
this law obtained an opinion from the
Attorney General and there was a very
lively controversy when the Commissioner
declined to disagree with the Attorney
General at the request of General Sickles
This act provided for Invalid pensions
of from C to 12 per month and contained
this clause And such pensions shall
commence from the date of the filing of
tho application in the Bureau of Pen
sions after the passage of this act etc
General Sickles told the Commissioner
that the expression after the passage of
this act did not refer to the act of May
9 1900 but to the act of June 27 1S90 of
which it was amendatory Mr Evans
thought the wording of the act made it
refer to pension claims filed after May
9 1900
Had General Sickles construction of the
law been accepted hy the bureau It would
have allowed many claims to go back
from one to ten years and have caused
the payment of much back pension mon
ey General Sickles resented the attitude
of the Commissioner In opposition to his
views and declared Weil the Grand
Army drew this act and It shouldr be al
lowed to interpret it
Commissioner Evans determined to let
the Attorney General construe the lan
guage of the act which wasTdone and
that law officer construed the act to mean
what Mr Evans supposed it meant and
that construction was adoptcdiby the bu
reau From that day to this General
Sickles has not called on the Commission
er and he has since joined he army of
critics of the Commissioner

The Illucs Pluck Snatched Victory
In the Inst Mile Freshmen Also
Triumphant Harvard Consoled by
Getting the Substitutes Fotir Oar
NEW XONDON June 27 In what was
most unquestionably the most sensational
varsity boat race ever held on the historic
Thames Yale conquered Harvard this
afternoon while 25000 spectators roared
in acclaim It was not until the last half
mile that the doubt about the result -of
the four mile struggle was settled Then
Yale drew away and won by a scant two
lengths In 2337 with Harvard ex
hausted S seconds behind Previous to
this race Yale had triumphed in the
freshman event by four and one half
lengths In 1027 4 5 while Harvard was
victorious in the four oared contest by six
lengths In 11491 5 The last nsmed race
was contested by the four substitutes of
each varsity crew who found In this
event their only consolation for failing to
win a scat in the eight oared shell of their
university
In the varsity raco Yales sand and
the magnificent training of the crew were
the direct cause of Harvards downfall
For nearly two miles it looked as if the
Crimson could not lose Then the Yale
coxswain as his crew approached the
two rrrflo mark oft the navyjranl steered
in close to the dock where there was
smooth water and in a dozen or more
strokes the Blues drew up on even terms
with the Crimsons who were in rougher
water and had the wind blowing lightly
at their backs
But this bit of maneuvrlng did not win
the race for Yale for after this It was
a fair square test of the crews respec
tive merits and though it was anybodys
victory up to the last half mile Yale sim
ply lasted better and rowed on to a glo
rious triumph
The water was perfect for rowing The
wind was Just cool enough to make the
atmosphere delightful and there was no
mishap of any kind Cameron the Yale
stroke was on the verge of a collapse
at the three mile mark but he pulled him
self together and with wonderful pluck
he led his men to the front In a way that
has made him a hero tonight The Har
vard men were game to the end butwhen
the Yale oarsmen let out the last -link
they had It was too great a pace to hold
to and the Crimson fell by the wayside
wlulo the victors flashed over the line
amid the roar of cannon deafening whis
tle blasts and the hoarse cheers of the
multitude afloat and ashore
Yale men wero simply frantic over the
result especially In view of the fafct that
it came when Harvard looked to be mas
ter of thCSltuatlon In the early stages
of the race Harvard was the personifi
cation of mechanical perfection and re
markably developed strength The water
manship of the crew was without a flaw
whereas the work of the Yale eight was
a trille ragged
Then again Harvard showed an ability
to draw away whenever it was neces
sary but the Yale men kept up their
sprinting game with such remarkable per
sistency and pluck that they Anally row
ed the Cambridge men to a standstill
At the finish several of the Crimson
oarsmen were ready to fall overboard
from exhaustion The whole crew had
to be assisted from the shell for that mat
ter Goodell the bow oar was in the
worst state Tho Yale men too were very
glad when the end came
The slowness of the raco was due to
the fact that both crews played a wait
ing game In the fust two miles Both
lowered their strokes so that at times
firm of motor car builders had a staff of i who should stand like adamant between so that after the first 100 yards had been
seventy seven mechanics on the ground
to inspect its cars berore they started
A firm of oil men distributed 1300 gal
lons of gasoline at various points along
the route

LONDON June 27 A private match
was sailed today at AVemyss Bay over
tho Royal Western course of 436 miles
between Shamrock I and the Karlad The
boats sailed on level terms
A slight southwesterly breeze prevailed
which died down In tho afternoon Sham
rock I showed marked superiority At
the end of the first round she was four
minutes ahead and at the end of the sec
ond thirty minutes and thirty seconds
At one portion of the raco the Kariad was
becalmed The times at the finish were
Shamrock I 6290S Kariad C232C
The Shamrock II moved through the
water in a freshening breeze with no ap
pearance of tenderness despite the tow
ering height of her new mast There was
no bow wave whatever and she showed
no wash astern
Sir Thomas Lipton and Messrs Fife and
Watson were on board
LONDON June 28 A despatch to the

dition to replacing the spars lost In the
Solent the Shamrock II is fitted with a

Local expertb regard the challenger as
over stiff and says she will need all the
proposed extra sail spread to make her
heel satisfactorily
Tho Times correspondent says that
although there was no attempt at a race
the challenger had one turn with Sham

that gave reason for expecting that when
she appears in her racing trim sho will

down to business the Harvard stroke was
lowered to 33 while Yales went down to

the half mile flag the closeness of the
race had worked the crowds up to such
a pitch of frenzy that men could be seen
throwing their hats away

the smoother water near the shore and
the Yale shell veered over In that
the Yale crew gained on the Harvard boat
so rapidly that there was a cry of alarm
from the Crimson cohorts Harvards
spurt which had Increased the lead to
three quarters of a length just before the
Yalo coxswain got his eyes open was
quickly cut down to nothing and as the
crews reached the two mile stake Yale
was actually Inthe lead though only by
ten feet
Try as they might In the next quarter
of a mile Harvard could not get back the
lost ground but at two miles and a half
Harvard got in another great spurt and
passed the Hag in 1434 Yule was only
two fifths of a second behind Both eights
were rowing thirty two to the minute
Harvard spurted again and drew away
to tho extent of half a length but an an
swering sprint put the Blue crew on nl
most even terms and Harvard passed the
three mile mark only three fifths of a sec
ond ahead of Yale
Cameron Yals stroke seemed to be in
distress now and as he slowed up In his
work there was a cry that he was on
the verge of a collapse and Yale would
be beaten But In a few minutes he had
recovered his nerve and was stroking the
crew in tho same splendid way -It was
the greatest race so far that had ever
been scon at New London Harvard was
still anxious to sprint and the Crimson

men put their shell almost a quarter of
a length In front
Then there was a blow that almost
killed the whole Harvard crowd The
Yale men rowing in beautiful form
quickly assumed the lead At the three
and a half mile mark Yales time was
2149 a second faster than Harvards
Goodell of Harvard was seen to wabble
but he recovered and the crew went on
harder than before Suddenly the Har
vard shell began to hang A q iarter of a
mile from home Yale had increased the
Ifd to i IcMsrth and the race vas hers
beyond a doubt
The Cambri tge men responded gamely
to each cal from the coxswali but it
was useless Yale crossed the line in 2337
with Harvard two scant lengths back In
2348
It was exactly 502 oclock when the
referee fired his revolver to start the
freshman race The sixteen oarsmen bent
their blades beneath the surface of the
glistening water and the shells leaped
away from captivity Yale got the better
of the start and in the first half dozen
strokes the Blue shells nose showed in
front Yale was rowing a splendid thirty
six stroke at the first quarter mile The
Harvard youngsters steadied greatly At
the mile flag both were rowing thirty six
but there was much difference between
th quality Yales time at the mile was
5W2 5 as against 512 for Harvard
This meant a difference of almost three
parts of a length and barring accidents
it looked as If Yale could not lose The
New Haven freshen hit up their stroke
to thrity seven at the mile and a half
and Harvard gamely responded with a
sprint that resulted in an almost complete
collapse
Harvard rowed harder and harder but
the Yale men had the physique and that
told the story Harvards coxswain lost
his bearings In the last quarter of a mile
Yale dashed across the finish line oppo
site the navy yard about four and one
half lengths ahead The Harvard young
sters were all out The official time two
miles was Yale 1027 4 5 Harvard 1048
-There waif very little delay before the
varsity four oared shells were off Yale
took tho water Just a shade more quick
ly than Harvard but the Crimson men
were up to snuff At the first quarter of
a mile Yale was ahead by a few feet It
was nip and tuck for the first half mile
but in that time the Harvard men took
the measure of their rival3 Though
there was no visible difference between
the bovs of the shells at the half Har
vard wasr rowing the more powerful
stroke
Then in the next quarter mile Harvard
began to show enough stamina and power
to take the starch out of the New Haven
itcs At the mile Harvard led by a third
of a length In 542 with Yales time
544 4 5 The race was then virtually over
for the Yale four was rowing raggedly
After that it was a procession and at the
finish Harvard was six lengths to the

FORREST RAYNOR
National Bank Examiner
Marquand Co pulled through again
today and the officers of other Institutions
which have been connected with the diffi
culties of the Seventh National In the talk
of the street declared that they were
sound As to any State institutions figur
ing in the same reports the Superintend
ent of the State Banking Department F
D Kilbourn said that they were not
Lvolved and that he expected no collapse
mwes saw at Washington today
that hrs received word on Tuesday fiom
the national bank examiner that Henry
Marquand Co had recently become
Indebted in a sum approximating 1600000
to the Seventh National Bank which lean
was secured by collateral of a doubtful
nature Upon receipt on Wednesday of
further Information regarding the nature
of the collaterals securing this loan he
sent this telegram to E R Thomasf the
new President of the Seventh National
Bank
I have just received Information from
the national bank examiner that Henry
Marquand Co have loans of large
amount In your bank approximating 1-
600000 Unless promptly and satisfactori
ly assured that this loan will be taken
up and cash therefor put into the bank
by JJiturday night June 23 I will appoint
a receiver for the bank Please convene
your board of directors and announce this
to
The Comptroller said that the Marquand
loan was partially secured and that It
was hoped the loss to depositors -would
not be large If the securities now held
In question turned out to be good It was
possible the bank would be able to resume
business within a reasonably short time
and that the creditors oud lose nothing
The bank officials had the Comptrollers
message on Wednesday afternoon when
the public was assured that the bank
was sound that Marquand Co had a
balance on deposit that the withdrawals
by depositors had been gratifylngly few
and that the bank would continue busi
ness as usual Accerding to a statement
issued this evening by the bank ilar
quand Co were called upon to make
good their obligations It was asserted
that they promised to do so and their
failure was given as one of the reasons
for the closing of the banks doors
This morning the board of directors of
the bank held a meeting which began
as early as S30 oclock The clearing
house committee went into session at
920 oclock The clearings were made as- -
usual ut 10 oclock and after the balance
had been struck It was ascertained that
the Seventh National Bank was debtor to
the extent of J644lis93
Officers of the Se enth National Bank
were communicated with at once and In
formed that the committee must know
Immediately if this balance would be fur
nished to the clearing house A reply
came back that the board of the Seventh
National Bank was in session and that
In a few moments they would arrive at
some conclusion The clearing house
committee kept the exchanges back for
thirty minutes Then representatives of
the bank went before the committee and -
stated that In view of the large debit bal- t
ance and other circumstances connected 5l
with the affairs of the bank it had been
deemed advisable by the board tempo
rarily to suspend payments
After this announcement the clearing
house committee instructed the manager
to eliminate from the clearings all trans
actions connected with the Seventh Na
tional Bank
While all this was In progress business
at the bank went ahead The paying and
receiving tellers were at their windows a
trifle before 10 oclock After Mr Ray
nors notice was posted there was no get
ting Into the bank iSe President Mr
Thomas the Vice President Fletcher
Heath and Mr Cromwell were Inside al-
most the whole day This evening Mr
Cromwell the banks counsel gave out
the first statement
Mr Edward R Thomas President of
the Seventh National Bank stated that
the difficulties of the bank were due sole
ly to the making by the previous execu
tive officers of large advances to Messrs
Marquand it Co and that the security re
ceived thereon was of an unmarketable
character although of considerable In
trinsic value Previous to Monday last
he himself had never had any relation to
the bank as director or officer but upon
the urgent application of the board he and
his associate Mr iiawln Gould had fur
nished financial assistance to a large
amount upon adequate security and upon
the assurance that the obligations of Mar
quand Co would be made good by this
morning
That the firm named had however
failed to fulfill expectations nnd while he
and Mr Gould and some of the directors
worn wlllintr to furnish financial aid It
was not deemed by them as just either
to the depositors stockholders or tho
public to Invite deposits until the affairs
of the bank were again placed upon an
absolutely sound basis That for this
purpose reasonable time was necessary
and to prevent unfair preferences or ad
vantages the board determined with the
advice of counsel to suspend operations
for the present
Accompanying this wa3 the following
paragraph
Mr William Halman Cromwell special
counsel for the Feventh National Bank
added that he was engaged In preparing
a ulan for the reorganization of the af
fairs of the bank and that it was be
lieved that a satisfactory plan would be
presented at an early date
The clearing house committee was In
formed today by the Ninth National Bank
that the bank had only one loan to Mar
quand Co and that this was secured
by New York Central and Iron Mountain
collateral which were considered ample
All the banks In the clearing house with
the exception of the Seventh National met
their debit balances promptly today
Marquand Co had another hard day
of It They were drawn upon heavily at
their own banking house and were pourd
ed more or les in Wall Street but y
succeeded In paying all demands and in
making all their deliveries When the
clearing house of the stock exchange
meets tomorrow to strike a balance it
will be definitely known whether thr day
was entirely sucoesaful for them There
were plenty of rumors concerning thn
house all day From all that could be
learned It was a tight squeeze
