WINS THE BRIGHTON
Irish Lad In Lead Breaks Down
L'nder Wire and Will Race
NEW YORK, July 9.—A new world's
record for one and a quarter miles was
created in the Brighton handicap at
Brighton Beach today. Broomstick from
the stable of S. S. Brown, the Pittsburg
millionaire, won by a short head from
Herman B. Duryea's Irish Lad. W. M.
Sheftel's Highball, winner of the Ameri
can Derby at Chicago, was third. Time.
2:02 4-5. is the best record now for the
distance over any kind of track.
Irish Lad led the way almost from be
ginning to end. He faltered in the last
jump, when Broomstick, having kept step
with him for the last quarter of a mile,
showed his nose in front as they passed
under the wire. When the Duryea horse
came back to the stand the great crowd
knew why he had faltered, for he could

fifth and sixth, respectively. Perfect
■weather drew an immense crowd to the
track by the sea. for it was felt by every
lover of the thoroughbred that the world's
vecord hung up a year ago yesterday by
Water Boy would be broken. Every avail

clubhouse, field stands and lawn was

Irish Lad's great speed seemed to in
crease as he went around the sharp turns
of the circular track, and try as they
might the others could not overtake him.
At the half-mile post he was a length in
front. Hildebrand eased up a little, think-
ing, to save his charge for the great ef
fort in the home stretch. Then Broom
stick crawled up slowly beside him. At
the mile post the Brown candidate show
ed his nose in front for a moment, but he
could not gain an inch, and they came
flown the stretch side by side with Irish
Irfid just enough in the lead to appear
certain of victory. The grand struggle
which had evoked volleys of cheers from
the moment the horses had passed the
half-mile post brought everyone to their
feet, each screaming with might and
main for his favorite. The supporters of
"Water Boy and Ort Wells had given up
hope long before the racers had turned
into the stretch and the jockeys on those
horses, seeing how hopeless was the
chance for overtaking the flying leaders,
did not urge their mounts.
Irish Lad Falters
The mile post had been passed in
1:37 4-5 and the hopelessness of making
up ground at such a clip was apparent

BREEZES RUN SHORT
White Be^r Yacht Events Pre
vented by Lack of Wind
For the first time in two seasons the
White Bear Yacht club was unable to
sail its weekly regatta for lack of wind.
Fortune smiled on the club for twenty
three consecutive times, to say nothing of
the numerous trial races which were sailed
on" last month. Yestei-day, however, there
was not the remotest chance of a race
within the time limit. At 3 o'clock the
lake was like a piece of glass, and while
here and there a ripple marred the other
wise smooth surface, it wasn't of the
sufficiently strenuous quality which
yachtsmen require in their business.
Hoping against hope, and after diversr
and sundry consultations with skippers
and members of the regatta committee.
Starter Tarbox concluded to court the
little god whose business It is to furnish
wind, and firaa a salute from the club
gun. He waited in vain for Hen minutes.
In the meantime the boats were doing the
best they could to get squared up to the
starting line. It was evident that they
could not all drift to It within the time
allotted, and Tarbox was generous
enough to allow them five minutes more.
The starting gun was then sounded. Ten
boats were entered in class B new and
four In class B old. The whole fourteen
were bunched together In a compact mass,
moving like one boat, but going so slow
ly that it took another ten minutes for
them all to cross the line.
There was no advantage' in position.
Three or four boats seemed to be on even
terms a. half length or so ahead of the
others. Then a boat from the middle of
the bunch would tire of the perform
ance and find relief for a moment in
nosing around the front.
Finally the Neola. starting with the old
B class, acquired the supreme desire of
proving her reputation as a drifter, and
Capt. Savage wormed his way through
the fleet. Neola always was a fickle thing,
and yesterday she confirmed anything that
might have been said of her of this
nature. Half way down to center buoy
she was fully one hundred yards ahead
of the next boat. Piqua, Capt. Forrest
Daniels, was leading the new B boats,
with Pluto half a length back. Then
came Robin Hood, Circe. Wanderer Ram
bler, all bunched together. The others
were stringing out slightly.
Several of the boats pulled out but
seven of them made the first mark.
Young America was among them to stick
it out, coming in second to Neola.
The boats entered were Robin Hood,
Fiqua. Ipcelon. Pluto, Circe, Wraith.
Rambler. Flycamaroo and Young America
In class B new. In the other class weie
Neola. Spindrift. Avis and Monedo.
A special pennant race will be sailed
by the two B classes on Wednesday
next. The pennant has been offered by
L. P. Ordway. and it is expected all the
boats in the two classes will be on hand
to race. Capt. T. L. Warm will have
charge of the race, acting as starter,
judge and timekeeper.

Harry New third.

DELTA IS SURE TO
GO TO MONTREAL
Regatta Committee Will Send
Sharp (Nosed Boat to
Eastern Waters *
The first races at Oshkosh among theY
candidates for Seawanhaka honors will
take place today, providing there is wind
enough to push the boats along. The
White Bear boat Alpha, which has sailed
in the trials against all the challengers,
arrived at Oshkosh Friday and was at
once placed in the water and rigged. She
will race against the Sigma, the other
White Bear boat, and such other boats as
may be presented by other clubs. The
Oshkosh, of the Oshkosh Yacht club, and
the Davis boat, Alberta, together with
Lorimer's Warrior, are all apt to be con
testants. There should be some fine ra
cing on Winnebago for the next three
or four days.
Sigma, the Jones & Laborde boat, built
for the White Bear club, proved that she
was a speedy craft by trimming up the
fleet in Thursday's race by nearly three
minutes. In the race of the day previous,
which was lost by a mere ten seconds, she
would have won handily had the crew not
overreached the buoy. Sigma, is fast:
there is no question about that; at least
so far as the boats now racing on Winne
bago are concerned. What she will do to
Alpha remains to be seen, and her work
against Alpha will offer an opportunity to
make comparison with the crack Delta.
which the club kept at home.
Committee Turns Trick
When Alpha was taken to Oshkosh. as
first announced by The Globe, the lo
cal yachting sharps immediately trained
their guns on the special regatta com
mittee and criticised its action. They
could not see why Alpha should be taken
to Winnebago and the fastest boat of
the challenger fleet stay at home. Hap
pily, they have all gotten wise to the
situation, and are crediting the regatta
committee with having a long head. The
committee had no idea of sending the
pointed-nose boat to Oshkosh in the hope
that she might finally be selected to go to
Her speed against E>elta was known,
and it was figured to save the strain in
cident to the trip to Oshkosh and keep
her in fine tune. Alphas races at Osh
kosh should offer a line on the fastest
boat on Winnebago racing there this week.
Should Alpha be taken to Oshkosh the
best boat there will be taken to Montreal,
and engage in further trials with Delta,
which will be shipped from White Bear.
The plan is an ideal one. as it will not
only serve to bring out the fastest boat,
but will give the club two boats to select
from after trying them on the home wa
ters of the cup defender.
From all reports which have come
from Oshkosh. Sigma is_ known to be very
fast. She resembles in general outline
the Griggs scow Minnezitka. Her work
thus far has been very satisfactory un
der the circumstances, and as soon as sue
is placed in the hands of a White Bear
crew is sure to make a good showing.
Among the contingent leaving for Osh
kosh last night were I* P. Ordway, C.
M. Griggs. Carl Schiuieman and Sam and
Jack Ordway. They will arrive at Lake
Winnebago this morning and engage in
racing as early as practicable.
As soon as a decision is arrived at so far
as the trials at Oshkoeh are concerned,
the boat selected will be shipped (to Mon->
treal, and Delta will go forward from
White Bear. The club will be obliged to
nominate the challenger at least five days
before the cup races are sailed.
White Bear Contingent
There is already considerable talk
among the White Bear yachtsmen and
their friends of witnessing the big contest
at Montreal, and so far as can be judg
ed at this time there will be upwards of
100 Saintly City people to cheer for the
White Bear champion on Bay St. Louis
when the first gun is fired.
Local sharps are growing more confident
of success, and feel that there is a bet
ter opportunity of lifting the cup this
year, with the material at hand, than
ever before. The Montreal club is still
undecided as to the selection of a defend
er. The ThorellaU. is still unbeaten.
Ivioorna and Aeola 11. have tried their
speed against her. but have found her too
fleet of foot. If Thorella 11. proves to be
the limit of speed which the Eastern
Canadians expect will retain possession of
the cup for another year the White Bear
men will be satisfied to go against her
with the fastest of the 1904' crop of boats,
which means the fastest in America
The names of the boats in the chal
lenger class will be changed shortly. It
was intended to use the present names
only temporarily. Just what the name
of the challenger which is finally selected
will be has not been given out.. A num
ber of names from which a selection might
be made are Minneota. Minnezitka Min
neiska. Manitou, Minnesota. Mahto and
GEN. BOOTH SENDS
'MESSAGE TO AMERICA
Gives Significance of the International
Congress of the Salvation Army
LONDON, July 9. —Gen. Booth sends
the following, message to the Salva
tionists of America in regard to the
value of the international congress
which closed here last night:
"The international congress of the
Salvation Army furnished remarkable
evidence of the concrete form and pow
erfu" force which this movement is cal
culated to exercise in promoting- the
true brotherhood of man and to deal a
heavy blow to the walls of racial color
and prejudice without injuring the true
spirit of nationalism. The vision of
French and German Salvation soldiers,
of Americans and Spaniards, of Japa
nese and Finns, cf Britons and Boers,
of converted Hindoos; Buddhists and
Mohammedans marching side by side
through the streets of London at the
boat of the once despised drum of the
army, playing the same music and
singing the same songs, all following
the one flag, could not fail to exercise
powerful influence in the making of
peace and international concord.
"The -American contingent has, I am
happy to say, largely contributed to
the success of the congress and has
testified to the power of our plan and
principle. They embraced in their army
all classes and conditions of men. I
believe in the possibility of an Amer
ican, not only in his scientific and
commercial enterprises, but in his abil
ity to secure greater conquests
throughout the world; his inventive
ness, his freedom from shackles and
conventionalism and his readiness to
adopt new methods where they are
likely to more efficiently and quickly
realize his aims. The congress Drought
visibly before us our own needs. We
want men of brain and power, men of
energy, men who have genius for phil
anthropy and wealth to invest in our

Man Caught Sweeping Wheat in Box
Car Takes Desperate Chance
Charles Tienz, charged with sweep

in the yards, yesterday took a des

The special officer noticed Teinz en

to get to work jumped into the car.
He was not quick enough, however, for
as he entered thi-ough one door Tienz
went out through the other. The offi
cer gave chase down the yards and
Tienz, seeing that he was gradually
losing ground, made for the river, into
which he plunged. He seized a float

the other shore. He no sooner
stepped to shore than he was grabbed
by another policeman, who had seen
him take the desperate chance and
thought he was heading off a badly
wanted criminal. Tienz was taken to

it £~j TONE, of Milwaukee, is still the heavy hitter of the American association, ',
° and he is bettering his figures every week. Jackson ranks fourth in the '
H list, but his batting has fallen off slightly. Jones is eleventh and he, 4 t
<i too, shows a decline. In both cases, however, the loss is too slight to cause ,
<> any apprehension and must be accepted as a mere fluctuation. ' <
° Wheeler has made the greatest gain, and now shows every disposition to <
" get back into the .300 division, where he rightfully belongs. O'Brien has fallen '
" back somewhat and Pierce has done likewise. Clingman has come up over '
y the .250 mark, and Marcan and Kelley are climbing steadily. <
Jackson still leads the association in the matter of home runs, with eight *
" to his credit, and he has the base stealing record by a wide margin, with i
" thirty-one offenses charged against him. His nearest rival in this branch of <
' the game is the fleet footed Maloney, of the Millers, and he has but twenty- *
° four. • S
♦ Stone and Wrigley, of Columbus, are tied for two-base hit honors, with 1
(> -twenty-two apiece. Stone has hit safely 120 times, and Wrigley has only *
" eighty-one hits, so that the Columbus second baseman gets a two-bagger out '
° of every fourth hit.
♦ Schaeffer leads the three-base hitters, with ten, and Wheeler comes after
' him with eight. Magoon holds the sacrifice hit record with seventeen. The
