SEERESS IS BEATEN
EASTERN BOAT .FINISHES SEC
OND TO CRUSADER IN FIF
GENEVA AND MINNESOTA
BOTH COME TO GRIEF
Cavite, Avis, Falcon and Ki-U Are the
Other Winners —Some of the Fin
ishes Are Close and Exciting—
Seeress to Stay on White Bear Lake.
It was a strenuous day for the yachts
th t essayed the course of the White
Bear Yacht club yesterday. A fifteen
mile breeze, showing much stronger
on the puffs, blew from the west, with
a dear sky over head and a warm sun.
The blow did not keep down the entry
list, however, as twenty-one yachts
c. jssed the starting line, of which five
did not finish. Geneva was the first
to furnish excitement for the specta
tors, and before she had traveled more
than 200 yards she got a good one,
which sent her reeling. The boat was
undermanned at the time, and had
Fry had a couple of more fellows
aboard, would undoubtedly have fin
ished the course. Harry Drake picked
up the crew with his launch Alida,
and af^er righting the boat and bailing
her out, she sailed to the island with
her jib. There were also a couple of
minor accidents to other boats. Min
nesota broke her jib rigging after haul
ing into the wind, and Mooswa tore
her sail, although not sufficiently to
put her out of the running. The sur
prise was that there were not more
mishaps, as the boats were heeled
OVer, apparently to the last notch, on
the v, indward legs, where another puff
might have done the business, but
clever handling and good judgment on
the part of the skippers saved further
Crusader Beats Seeress.
Crusader again showed her prowess
In a wind much to her liking, and beat
the Eastern boat Seeress, which fin
ished second, by several minutes. This
makes the fourth official race which
Crusader has sailed on this lake, and
has won them all.
Cavite, Avis, Falcon and Xi U were
the other winners of the day. The
start in the open class was the poorest
seen on the lake this season. Only
one boat, Cavite, was In position as
the gun sounded, Aloha, Harriet and
Geneva not having gotten on the right
side of the line. The wind caught Ca
vite nicely, and she was a quarter of a
mile ahead of the others before they
were in position to get away. They
finally did so, Harriet and Aloha being
lapped, while Geneva was a couple of
lengths back. Geneva capsized after
going but a short distance. Cavite
led the way all around, and won with
■ a comfortable margin. Her time was
1:19:55, and, had she been pushed,
would undoubtedly have sailed the
course in a couple of minutes faster.
Aloha and Harriet fought it out at
close range for place honors. They
are both light weather boats, and did
not like the going, but they held on
gamely. Aloha came in second, less
than two minutes in front of Harriet.
Goblin, MonedO, Avis, Jim Crack and
Mooswa were entered in class B. The
start was close, the boats racing well
together for the first couple of legs.
Avis then showed signs of pulling
away from her field, and at the fourth
mile was a minute and ten seconds
ahead of Monedo, who was a minute
ahead of Jim Crack. Farther back
came Mooswa and Goblin, sailing close
together, and hanging on u> the lead
ers with splendid determination.
Avis Wins in Class B.
Capt. Ring managed to keep Avis in
the lead, and, although Monedo and
Jim Crack were pressing him hard at
all times, he finally got his boat over
the line by a margin of more than two
minutes over Monedo, who beat Jim
Crack 35 seconds.
The six boats in class A were to start
at 3:30, but Minnesota was slow in get
ing off, and the skippers agreed to wait
five minutes. While maneuvering
around the line Crusader broke her
peak sling, which necessitated running
In for repairs, and another postpone
ment of five minutes was taken, so
that it was 3:40 when they finally got
away. Minnezitka crossed first, with
Highlander next, and a half length in
front of Undine. Then came Crusader,
Minnesota and Seeress, all well up.
Mill Griggs eased off on the reach and
took Seeress well to leeward of the
other boats, where there would be no
wind interference. He turned the first
mark first, with Minnezitka, Highland
er, Undine, Crusader and Minnesota
following in order. Minnesota was a
beaten boat at this stage of the game,
as she was falling off badly and had
great difficulty in meeting the heavy
sea. Clarkson got his spinnaker set
first, and Undine passed the others on
the run to Wildwood, with Seeress
overlapped and Crusader next. Back
to windward Crusader plowed through
the heavy sea faster than the others,
and from this time on she opened up
water on every leg. At the fouth mile
she was leading Highlander by three
minutes "and five seconds. Minnezitka
was next, with Undine and Seeress
right together. On the next trip down
the lake Seeress made constant gains,
and sailed the last four miles faster
than any of the other boats, even in
cluding Crusader. She ran up and
passed Minnezitka and Highlander,
but Crusader's lead was too great to
be overcome. Crusader completed the
course in 1:17:12, which establishes a
new mark for the season. Seeress
made the course in 1:19:50, Highland-
er in 1:20:10, five seconds better than
Minnezitka. Undine was last, about
two minutes behind Minnezitka, but
did not cross the finishing line.
Falcon Wins, as Uusual.
Van Vleck sailed Falcon to her cus
tomary victory in the second division
of the open class. Pyxie, her only con»
testant, found matters to strong both
overhead and underneath, and decid
ed to pull out after getting a good
taste of the blow. Falcon's time over
the six-mile course was 1:19 flat.
Ki-U, Blanca, Curlew and Nip went
over the line shortly after gun fire in
class C. They were well bunched.
Ki-U led over most of the course, but
Blanca and—Curlew were hard aftet
her for the first four miles, where
Blanca fell back. Nip was several
minutes behind. Ki-U and Curlew
sailed a tight race on the last two
miles of the course, the former getting
the decision by 37 seconds. Blanca
quit on the last leg of the course. Nip

Capt. R. K. Armstrong has donated
four handsome yachting pictures of
White Bear scenes to the club.
Seeress sailed a remarkable race yes
terday and no mistake. The boat was
hurriedly rigged and her sails put on
without any tuning up. The last half
of the course yesterday she sailed fast
er than any other boat in the fleet.
Local yachtmen are glad to learn that
Seeress will remain on White Bear
lake. A syndicate of yachtmen, com
posed of Messrs. Griggs, Warm,
Clark, McGill, Vittum and Ord

She will be seen in the weekly
regattas and will also take part in the
trial races to be held shortly.

yacht builder of Minnetonka, was one
of the interested spectators at the club
house yesterday afternoon.
Timekeeper Cresswell has furnished
the'club with a blue print showing in

Able to Race Again for a Long Time.
HARTFORD, Conn., Aug. 2.—An ac
cident today marred what was expected
to be the greatest trotting event in
turf history. In the third heat of the
$50,000 match race between Lord Der
by, owned by E. S. Mathers, and Bo
ralma, owned by Thomas W. Lawson,
of Boston, the latter horse sustained
an injury which caused him to be
drawn and the race was given to Lord
Derby., The result was a bitter disap-

pointment not only to the owner of the
Boston horse, but to the general pub
lic, which to the number of 15,000 con
gregated at Charter Oak park. The in
jury to Boralma is such that he will
probably be prevented from racing for
some time to come. In scoring the
Boston horse gashed the quarter of
his nigh foreleg badly and was unable
to start in the fourth heat.
The track was in splendid shape and
everything was favorable to record
breaking time. Horsemen from all
over the country were on hand to wit
ness the contest.
Lord Derby was a hot favorite in
the betting. J<fct before the first heat
odds of 2 to 1 were freely offered on
him. When Boralma won the first
heat the odds were even, and at the
close of the second heat which was
won by Lord Derby, they shifted de
cidedly in favor of the latter. The
judges were: C. R. S. Billings, of Chi
cago; E. E. Perrin, of Buffalo, and Ex-
Mayor Harbison, of Hartford. Frank
B. Walker, of New York, acted as
The racers came on the track shortly
after 3 o'clock, Lord Derby with Geers
behind him, being the first to appear,
and was greeted'with loud applause.
Boralma followed about a minute later
and the cheering which marked his
appearance showed that he was. the
favorite with the crowd. Geers won
the toss for position and chose the
After scoring three times, during
which Geers showed a disposition to
hold Lord Derby, Starter Walker gave
the word to go. The Boston horse out
stepped Lord Derby from the start.
He took possession of the pole at the
first turn and held it all the way. The
horses were about a length apart until
the home, stretch was reached. As
they came toward the wire Lord Der
by swerved and broke and Boralma
came under the wire four lengths
ahead in 2:08. Loud cheering marked
the finish of the heat.
As the horses came to the track for
the second heat Geers expressed an
opinion that Lord Derby would win.
The horses g6t off together and Bor
alma led until the distance post was
reached. The Boston horse followed
gamely and rallied, but the rally was
followed by a break and he crossed
the wire two lengths behind Lord Der
by. In this heat Boralma showed signs
of lameness. Time, 2:09%.
Advantage Short Lived.
In the third heat Boralma once more
took the lead at the start, but his ad
vantage was short lived. He broke at
the first turn and again at the stretch.
As the racers came toward the wire it
was plainly evident that something
serious had happened to Boralma, for
he went to pieces and Geers pulled
Lord Derby in order not to distance
his unlucky rival and allowed Boralma
to come within a length of him at the
wire. Time, 2:1814.
As soon as the heat was over the an
nouncer called for a veterinary sur
geon. Dr. G. H. Lee, of Boston, re
sponded and found that Boralma had
been so badly injured that he could
race no more today. Consequently with
the consent of the judges, he was
drawn. In order to fulfill the require
ments of the match, Lord Derby trot
ted the next heat alone, and was then
awarded the victory. After the last
heat had been trotted Lord Derby, ac
companied by a runner, trotted an ex
hibition mile in 2:08.
After the accident Boralma was
taken to his quarters, and Dr. Lee
dressed the injured ankle. He said that
the wound was the result of the horse
overreaching himself, and that the
gash in the leg was four inches in
length. He was unable to say if the
horse had been permanently injured.
T. D. Marsh, who drove Boralma, said
that he was unablej to tell just when
the accident occurred. 7

weather warm, when MdHenry brought
out-'the great gelding for the trial. He
scored down once, and the next time
was sent away accompanied by a run

was paced in 31 seconds. When he
turned into the back stretch McHenry
let him fly, and the half was reported
in 1 minute flat. The ttiird quarter
around the upper turn was paced in
1:30%, and the horse was going so
easily when he straightened away for
the wire that it was evident that he
could not fail to break the record.
About fifty yards from the wire Mc-
Henry began to pull Dan Patch and
succeeded in partially stooping him be

made the following statement to the
Associated Press after the trial:
"My intention was to drive Patch a
mile close to 2:01%, but not quite
reaching that mark, thus escaping the
penalty of the record and leaving the
horse in the 2:04 class. He was so
good, however, and raced so easily that
we made faster time than I intended.

could not slow him up in time. I am

CAPTURES BRIGHTON DERBY.
Capt.* Brown's Hyphen Gallops Home
an Easy Winner.
NEW YORK, Aug. 2.—Capt. S. S.
Brown's Hyphen, by Himyar-Sema
phore, and piloted by Odom, galloped
home an easy winner in the Brighton
Derby, worth $10,000, run at Brighton
Beach today. There were originally
four starters, but Green Morris
scratched Old England, depending upon
his stable mate. Homestead, to carry
the Morris colors to victory. The start
ers were Maj. Daingerfield, 126, Shaw
up; Hyphen, 111, Odom, and Home
stead, 111, Jackson. Maj. Daingerfield
was always a consistent favorite, clos
ing at even money, with Hyphen sec
ond choice, 6 to 5, and Homestead
quoted at 8 to 1.
The start was good. Hyphen broke
In front, the favorite second. As they
passed the stand the first time, Hyphen
was leading by half a length and going
very easy, with the Major second. This
order was maintained around the first
turn and into the back stretch. Home
stead was now beaten, unable to keep
up with the fast pace. Nearing the
five-eighths pole Odom let his mount
have his head, and in a twinkle Hy
phen bounded forward and opened a
gap of two lengths on the favorite.
Rounding into the stretch Hyphen was
galloping, while the Major was under
whip and spurs. Shaw, realizing he
had no chance to win, eased up his
mount. Hyphen galloped home four
lengths in front of Maj. Daingerfield.
Homestead was last and was beaten
nearily a sixteenth of a mile. The time,
2:04 1-5, was remarkably fast, as the
track was not at its best.
Julius Fleischman's Hurstbourne, the
favorite, with Redfern up, won the
Brighton Junior stakes for two-year
olds. The race was a six-furlong dash,
and brought out a fairly well matched
field of colts. Hurstbourne was quot
ed at 11 to 20; the Keene stable, Dales
man and Prediction, second choice, at
3 to 1, and Capt. Brown's colt, Blue
Ribbon, next in demand at 10 to 1.
Blue Ribbon set the pace up to the
back stretch, closely followed by the
favorite. These two raced together
around the far turn and into the
stretch. Straightening out for the i;un
home, Redfern, on Hurstbourne grad
ually closed on the leader. From the
eighth pole to the wire it was a pretty
race, both horses running head and
head. Redfern, by hard riding, man
aged to get Hurstbourne up in the last
stride to win by a short head. Blue
Ribbon was six lengths in front of
Jockey McFadclen was badly hurt by
a fall in the sixth race. There was
some crowding in the stretch, and, as a
result, three horses fell. The other rid
ers escaped injury.
GALLOPS AWAY WITH STAKE.
Sprinting Mare Ethylene Wins the
Home Bred at St. Louis.
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 2.—Martin & Pat
ton's crack sprinting mare Ethylene
galloped away with the Home Bred
stake at Delmar today. The Home
Bred is for Missouri bred horses ex
clusively, and is modeled after the Na
tive Nursery stake, which was recent
ly decided at the fair grounds. Bonner
got Ethylene away in the lead and she
was never headed, winning very easily
by a length and a half from Schwalbe,
which was the same distance before
Father Wentker. Barney Schreiber's
entry, Schwalbe and Father Wentker,
was made a strong favorite at 4 to 5,
and Ethylene_second choice at 11 to 5,
the latter receiving a good play. Harry
Griffith, Beana and Verify were the
winning favorites, the other events go
ing to three second choices and an out
sider. Herodes. Broodier and Hi Nocker
fell in the home stretch in the last race.
JOckies J. O'Connor and Boyd were
picked up unconscious, having sustain
ed severe cuts and bruises about the
head. They will be all right in a few
daya. Jockey M. Thompson was badly
shaken up. Weather clear; track fast.

Henry M. Flagler, of the Standard Oil
The estate of Mrs. Flagler, which has
been in charge of committees since she
was declared to be incompetent,
amounted to $2,273,000 on Aug. 4, 1899,
and has increased. The net income
runs from $116,000 to $117,000 a year.
An important point in the proceedings
was whether Mr. Flagler had, through
his divorce, lost his interest in the es
tate of his wife if she should die first.
Mr. Flagler laid no claim to such an
interest, but the question had not been
judiciously determined. The referee
will report that Mr. Flagler has no in
terest whatever in the estate.
A mass of evidence was sifted as to
how the three foundlings, who are
nephews of Mrs. Flagler, came to learn
of their relationship. Mrs. Flagler's
maiden name was Shourds. Her sister,
Mary Emma Taylor, died on Feb. 28,
1864, and Mary's husband, Edward W.
Taylor, gave the custody of their three
sons, William, Richard and George, to
the New York foundling asylum. Ten
years later they were apprenticed to
farmers in lowa. In 1901, William, who
had become a harnessmaker, became
interested in his family tree, and the
discovery of relationship to Mrs. Flag
ler followed. Richard, one of the three
foundlings, is a painter, while the third
is an engineer on the Northern Pacific
railway. T he relatives, as judiciously
determined, of Mrs. Flagler and the
portion each will get of her estate if
she dies are:
Charles F. Shourds, brother, one
quarter: Stephen E. Shourds, brother,
one-quarter; Mrs. Mattie A. Johnson,
sister, xme-quarter, and the other quar
ter will go among the three Taylors.
The referee advises that $4,000 a year
of income be paid now to the three
Taylors, so that each will get a third
of it. The two brothers and the sister
of the incompetent have previously ob
tained orders for $4,000 a year from the
surplus income of Mrs. Flagler. All
charges against the income of Mrs.
Flagler, including allowances made for
her support, leave a surplus income of
about $60,000 a year.

DISCUSSES THE 'PINOS
PRESIDENT SCHURMAN SPEAKS
ON "PHILIPPINE PROBLEM"
"Let the Dead Past Bury Its Dead,"
Says the Head of Cornell University
—He Thinks the Administration Is
Doing Quite the Popular Caper Re
garding the Islands.
CHAUTAUQUA, N. V. ( Aug. 2.—
President Schurman, of Cornell uni
versity, today delivered an address on
"The Philippine Problem" before the
Chautauqua assembly. He said in part:
"Let the dead past bury its dead. .The
Philippine problem is no longer a ques
tion of the conduct of the army, or of a
few men in the army; it is no longer a
question of the character of Aguinaldo;
it is no longer a question of the juris
diction of the Philippine republic of
1899;.1t is no longer a question of the val
idity of American sovereignty over the
archipelago or of the wisdom of the pol
icy of assuming it. These are all issues
of the past. The pacification of the
archipelago, the official announcement of
the termination of hostilities, the procla
mation of amnesty, and the substitution
of civil for military control, all bring us
in sight of war problems. At the heart
of them all I think you will find that ques
tion: What is to be the political status
of the inhabitants of the Philippine
islands? Or, more particularly, what is
to be the political status of the 6.500,000
civilized and Christianized Filipinos of
Luzon and the Visayas?
"If imperialism means a government
without the consent of the governed,
and anti-imperialism the contrary, then
it must be asserted that In the first con
flict of those forces over the government
of the Philippines, the anti-imperialists
have won the day. After 1904. when the
new Philippine legislature comes into ex
istence, no bill can be enacted into law
in the Philippines without the consent
of the governed duly given by their rep
resentative legislative assembly. Mean
time the act of congress creating that
assembly secures to the Filipinos all the
civil rights specified in the bill of rights
of our own constitution except the right
to carry arms (which is. at present, a
prudent reservation) and the right to trial
by jury (which is foreign to the laws and
legal traditions and ideas of the Fili
"I certainly am satisfied with the ac
tion of the president and congress in re
gard to Philippine affairs. I believe that
President Roosevelt's attitude toward the
Philippine question, indicated in his first
message to congress and in his Arlington
speech, his punishment of army officers
who have been proved guilty of cruelty
toward Filipinos, and his constant sup
port of a liberal and enlightened Philip
pine policy in general, combined with the
passage by congress of the Philippine
civil government bill, will have the effect
of eliminating tiie Philippines as a politi
cal issue for at least three or four years.
Even those who favor independence can
not raise the question till that native leg
islative assembly has voiced the senti
ments of the Filipinos on the subject and
also demonstrated by wise and prudent
use of the legislative power it enjoys that
it is fit to receive a higher grant of home

TERRORIZATION OF THE
RUSSIAN PRESS PROCEEDS
Only Genuine Newspaper Left Is Now
Muzzled Like the Rest.
ST. PETERSBURG, Aug. 2. — The
progressive terrorization of the Rus
sian press, which characterized the
regime of M. Sipiaguin, the minister of
interior, who was assassinated last
April, appears to have been adopted a.a
a settled policy by his successor, M.
M. Sipiaguin closed the Northern
Courier and the Rossiya. After their
extinction the only newspaper in St.
Petersburg which maintained an inde
pendent attitude, was the St. Peters
burg Viedomosti, an old journal owned
by Prince Oukatomsky. In spite of
censorship the Viedomosit always hag
been characterized by its interesting
excerpts from the provincial, newspa
per. It alone of all St. Petersburg
newspapers has attempted to keep its
readers informed about what was go
ing on. It now appears that the de
partment of the \ iedomosti has be
come an eyesore to the government.
Minister yon Plesve summoned
Prince Oukatomsky to him July 12 and
lectured him severely on hfs manage
ment of the journal, which is leased
from the government. M. yon Plesve
told the prince the Viedomosti had be
come the organ of the liberals
revolutionists, particularly in its pro
vincial departments. He peremptorily
demanded the immediate dismissal of
the editor of this ~aper and warned
him that after two months hte lease of
the paper, which had several years yet
to run, would be canceled. 11. yon
Plesve concluded by saying he had
seen the czar on July 9, and had re
ceived his majesty's permission to take
these severe measures.
