CORNELL GAS ROW
WW FIRST OF THE FOUR
CONTEST FOR FRESHMEN.
SKILL AND HARD PILLING WON
THE DAY FOR CORNELL'S
A PROTEST ENTERED BY HARVARD
Tb<- Criiiisftn Crew Finished Second,
Followed by the University of
POUGHKEEPSIE, N. V., June 24.—
•Skill and hard pulling won the day for
Cornell's freshmen eight in the first
of the two big four-cornered university
boat races which took place this after
noon. The shells finished in this or
Cornell, first; Harvard, second by a
length; Pennsylvania University, third,
three-quarters of a length; Columbia,
four, by fully fifteen lengths. The of
ficial time was 10:18, 10:22, 10:26 1-2,
There was a misunderstanding at the
start in the manner of giving the sig
nal to be off, and on account of It
Harvard has tonight entered a formal
protest against the awarding of the
race. It will not be effective, however,
as in order to make it so It would be
necessary to have three of the crews
enter protests, and this will not be
The rain which began to fall soon
after noon plainly told that there would
not be a large crowd at the races. The
Idea of a possible postponement was
talked of on all sides, but was soon
afterwards squelched by an official an
nouncement from the referee.
Out on the river, just outside of the
police lines, twelve to fifteen steam and
schooner yachts, with streamers from
"stem to stern, iay waiting. About 4:40
o'clock there was an abatement in the
rain. The southwest wind livened up
almost imperceptibly, and the crowds
began to gather along the river, and-at
5:15, when the rain had entirely ceased,
the shore was lined along the last half
mile of the course by a solid mass of
spectators. Probably 10,000 people wit
nessed the finish of the race.
The crews were promptly in position
at half past five. Cornell arrived at
the starting place first followed by
Pennsylvania. Next came Harvard
and last Columbia. There was very
little enthusiasm in the crowd of 500
people on the observation train as the
crews passed in front. There was a
levelling of field glasses at the Colum
bia boat when she appeared. Every
body was anxious to see if Chao, who
was suffering from a touch of inter
mittent fever, was one of the crew.
Sure enough, there he sat at No. 4,
grasping his oar as if his life depended
upon his individual efforts. His physi
cian had given him orders not to enter
the boat, but the plucky little Spaniard
insisted upon handling an oar. To
night, considerable criticism Is heard
because Coach Sturgis allowed Chao
to row. There can be no doubt that
the crew was vitally weakened by his
presence in the boat.
The Harvard freshmen took their
places at No. 1, nearer the West shore, |
with a very deliberate air of confidence.
They caused the delay In the race,
however, by dragging their stake boat
15 feet below the line. The r«£w«*
spent two minutes in getting them
back on the line.
The start was made at 5:39:22. The
delay and trouble in lining Harvard up
evidently rattled Rives, for he gavi
the crews a very poor start. He first
asked them if they were ready.. All
of the coxswains raised their hands
except little Plum in the Harvard boat.
Rives either did not see him or thought
he ought to be ready for without fur
ther warning he shouted "go." Rives
had arranged to fire a pistol as the
starting signal, and his verbal signal
created confusion to certain extent.
Cornell, Columbia and Pennsylvania,
however, got the water promptly.
Three seconds later Rives fired his
pistol and Harvard got off. The
■ referee's error had no effect upon the
vltimate result of the race. Though
Harvard got off late they caught the
water which was choppy, owing to a
combination of ebb tide and a south
east wind, with a powerful stroke, and
at once took second place lapping their
boat for a quarter of its length on the
Cornell shell. The Pennsylvania's were
just a trifle slow in getting their oars
into the water and were almost as tar
dy as Harvard In the start.
At the beginning all of the crews
rowed a nearly uniform stroke of 36
to the minute. Cornell led at the half.
Harvard coming next, a length ahead
of the Quakers and Columbia two
lengths In the rear. Cornell gained a
little on the field and passed under the
bridge which marked the mile, a length
and a half ahead of the Orimsons, who
were one and one quarter lengths in
advance of Pennsylvania, the latter in
turn leading the New Yorkers by four
At the first mile Cornell and Penn
sylvania had dropped their stroke to
34 while Harvard and Columbia still
rowed 36, the latter's stroke being en
tirely devoid of snap or power. On
the first half of the second mile, Cor
nell widened the gap between her shell
and Harvard's to two lenghts, Penn
sylvania again lapped the Cambridge
boat by a quarter of a length, while
Columbia had fallen back to six
At the mile and a half, all of the
crews were pulling 34 strokes a minute
except Columbia, whose men were
sticking their oars into the water like
so many stllletoes at the rate of 38 a
minute. Coming down the last half,
Harvard made one of George Mum
ford's pet spurts which closed them
upon the Cornell crew by a length.
They were unable, however, to shake
the Quakers who made a spurt at the
same time and the crews crossed the
finish line in the order given above.
Cornell crossed the line at 5:49:40. It

IS FINE FORM.
Yale Men Are Doing Excellent Wor.c
HENLEY-ON-THAMEg, June 24.—
Over half of the course this morning,
rowing thirty-six to Yale's thirty
two, the Leander crew beat Yale but
five seconds. The crews did not row
together, but these figures are from
the times taken by Bob Cook. The lat
ter says the Yale men are steadily Im
proving. Leander did the whole course
In 7:10 later In the afternoon.
All the crews were out and the tow
path was crowded this evening. At *
p. m., the Americans took the water,
and the greatest interest was manifest
ed in their movements. The Yale crew
paddled in short stretches to the start
ing point. Bob Cook was on horse
back, and as the New Haven oarsmen
passed tbe other crews, who lay on
their oars eagerly watching the victors
from across the Atlantic, all rattled
their oars In their oarlocks in approval
of the form shown by the Americans.
Starting from the Temple Island, at
Mr. Cook's word, the Yale crew rowed
half the distance in 3:25, 3-5 the best
time made by them today. The stroke
averaged thirty-five to the minute.
Bob Cook wag well satisfied with the
men's work and said they rowed bet
ter than at any time since their ar
In regard to the supposed alteration
of the Yale stroke, Cook said the men
were rowing exactly as they did in
practice in America. He explained
that when the Yale men first went on
the water here they were naturally
nervous, rowed a high stroke and did
not row It out. But, he added, they
were now rowing In their old form.
RACING AT MINNEHAHA.
Promise of Good Sport There Next
If the weather Is favorable there
should be big crowds at Minnehaha
track, Minneapolis next week to attend
the five days of horse and bicycle rac
ing of the Minneapolis Driving Club's
summer meet, which begins on Tues
day. Entry blanks have been scattered
all over the Northwest, and If any
cycle enthusiast has not received one
he should apply to Secretary Jones at
the office of the Horseman and Sports
man. The liberal prizes for profession
als and amateurs, and the low fees
will ensure a big entry list. The trot
ting and pacing races, also, are going
to be exciting events as over 200 of the
I fastest horses in the Northwest have
been entered. Excursion rates are off
ered over all roads, so that people can
come to Minneapolis beginning Monday,
for a one and a third rate for the round
Homer Fairmon and John Lawson,
"The Terrible Swede," can be seen
training at Minnehaha daily this week.
They were assigned training quarters
yesterday, and time for the use of the
track has been divided up as follows:
In the morning Lawson is to have the
track from 9:30 to 10:30 o'clock, and
Fairmon from 10:30 to 11:30. In the
afternoon Lawson Is to have the track
from 2:30 to 3:30, and Fairmon from
3:30 to 4:30. The work of the men is
largely to accustom them to the track
and Northwestern air. Their prelimin
ary work has been done very thorough
ly, and each is in good condition. Fair
mon started in with John West, the
trainer, at the Mountain Ferry track,
Louisville, and while there was in
company with such swift fellows as
Tom Cooper and Eddie Ball. Then he
was sent to Omaha and later to Sioux
City to accustom him to lighter air.
Lawson has been on the Thirty-fifth
street track at Chicago sis regular as
clock work, and his recent perform
ance in defeating O. P. Nelson, winner
of the Chicago road race, shows that
he is in fine shape.
There is hardly any doubt that the
men will he paced In their 15-mile
heat next week. The cycle companies
which they represent will give the men
the best pace-making obtainable. S. H.
Meyers, manager for Lawson, has said
that he had "no objections to pace
makers*' and Ear! A. Norton for Fair
mon says that he prefers them. If they
are used the effect will be to heighten
interest for the spectators.
RIDERS LOOK ALIKE.
So Much So the Authorities Blake a
Among the cases which come under
the Judicial notice of Judge Twohy
yesterday was that of Rudolph Fischer
of the St. Paul Rubber company,
charged with having violated the
bicycle ordinance. One evening last
week Capt. A. Cook while walking
across the street at the corner of
Twelfth and Robert streets, was run
down by a bicyclist. The captain was
quite seriously injured and the com
plaint In the case was sworn out by
John A. Cook. The bike rider gave
his name as Fischer and at the time
of the accident said he was employed
on Robert street. Accordingly Rudolph
Fischer was brought to the Judicial bar
yesterday. All agreed that he was the
one who on the night of June 19, had
run down Capt. Cook. Rudolph, how
ever, said there must be some mistake
as he was out of the city on the night
In question and to make the thing
more binding admitted that he could'nt
ride a bike so that he certainly was
not the guilty one.
City Attorney Oppenheim moved the
case against Rudolph be dismissed
which was done. A warrant however
was issued for the arrest of Albert
Fischer also of the same company,
who. It is claimed, resembles Rudolph
so much that they have to be together
In order to distinguish which Is who.
SAN FRANCISCO, June 24.—Miss
Lansing Rowan, an actress, has chal
lenged Corbett to meet her In a scien
tific sparring contest. When word was
conveyed to r Corbett, he smiled,
scratched his head and did some heavy
thinking. " After considerable cogita
ting, he said: "Well, I don't know
what to say. That Is the strangest
proposition I ever received. I will try
and think out this problem if Sharkey
leaves anything of me, but I don't be
lieve I am equal to the occasion Just

Four offenders against the bicycle ordi
nance were before Judge Twohy yesterday.
One paid a fine of $2, two gave bonds not
to be caught again and one -was discharged.

SAN FRANCISCO. June 24.—That
San Franciscans have lost none of
their old time interest in Corbett re
ceived ample demonstration tonight
when the crowd began to assemble to
witness the four-round contest be
tween the champion and Tom Sharkey.
Although the preliminary contests
were not scheduled to begin until 8:80,
Mechanics' Pavilion was surrounded
by a crowd of several thousand peo
ple. When the doors were thrown open
there was a rush for seats of vantage
on the part of those who did not hold
reserved seats. In half an hour nearly
every seat In the building, which holds
10,000 people, was occupied.
Corbett stock rose rapidly in public
appreciation a few hours before the
time set for the contest to take place.
This afternoon odds of 10 to 3 were
laid that the champion would not be
able to knock the marine out in four
rounds. Then Corbett money began to
roll in in large bundles, and it was dif
ficult to find men to back Sharkey at
The evening's entertainment com
menced shortly after 9 o'clock with a
six-round go between Charley Rochette
and Jack Howard, lightweights. How
ard got enough In five rounds and quit.
Then came a flght between Australian
Billy Smith and Jack Davis, of Omaha.
Davis was knocked out in the second
Corbett and Sharkey stepped into the
ring at 10:40. Sharkey's seconds were
Tom MeGrath and Danny Needham.
Frank Carr was chosen as referee.
When Corbett entered the ring the
vast crowd rose to its feet and cheered
for several minutes. The men shook
hands when the cheering subsided,
and time was called for the first round.
Corbett assumed the aggressive from
the start and landed on the jaw with
his left. Corbett landed again on the
jaw and ducked a heavy swing from
Sharkey. The latter struck Corbett on
tho breast and clinched. Corbett land
ed his right heavily on the jaw. In a
mix-up Corbett landed with his left
and followed with his right.
On the second Sharkey landed a light
left on Jim's face and followed up with
a rush, Sharkey being on the aggress
ive. Corbett neatly dodged a heavy
left swing and landed on Sharkey's face
with his left. A clinch followed. Cor
bett then followed Sharkey, the latter
landing heavy with his right on Cor
bett's face. Sharkey landed his left
on the breast. Sharkey again landed
on Corbett's jaw. Corbett landed his
It ft heavily on the sailor.. Sharkey
landed a heavy one on Corbe'tt's breast
as the round closed. Sharkey made
a very game fight. The round closed
in Corbetts favor. •"*.'
In the third Sharkey- rushed
at Corbett Corbett dodged and
Sharkey clinched. Sharkey landed
heavily with a right on Corbett's ribs.
Corbett landed his right on the jaw and
followed with his left. Corbett landed
with heavy right and left jabs on the
face. Sharkey at this time was groggy
and inclined to clinch. Corbett landed
a heavy left on Sharkey's jaw and
Sharkey clinched to avoid punishment.
Sharkey refused to break and Corbett
landed, a heavy right. Sharkey struck
out wildly but did not land. Sharkey
landed as the round closed.
In the last round as the men came to
the center, Sharkey rushed at Corbett
and clinched. The referee was unable
to break the men apart. Corbett then
clinched Sharkey and held him lightly
In order to avoid the sailor's rushes.
Ccrbett appeared groggy and unable
to land a heavy blow. Corbett finally
went down. Corbett after he reaches
hie feet mixes up with the referee and
went down again. The police broke
into the ring to stop the flght but
Sharkey Jumped at them and refuses
to be led from the ring. Corbett ap
peared very tired. Sharkey made a
great fight throughout.
During the last two rounds Sharkey
was the aggressor and Corbett was
forced to clinch to keep the sailor from
fighting. It was the opinion of all who
saw the fight that Sharkey more than
held his own and was the fresher man
of the two at the end of the contest.
It Is, though declared a draw, practic
ally a victory for Sharkey, who had to
be held by the police to keep him from
going at Corbett. Sharkey, after the
fight, announced he would fight Cor
bett to a finish for $10,000 a side.
The big crowd at the pavilion went
wild with excitement, and Sharkey was
loudly cheered. Corbett seemed to be
greatly exhausted, and his breast was
red and scratched from the effect of
Sharkey's blows. The sailor's adhe
rents allege that Corbett himself gave
the signal for the police interference
when he found he was geting the worst

the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis

It will be remembered that several
