THE ARMY IN THE PHILIPPINES.
FLA>"3 FOR BRINGING HOME VOLUNTEERS
AND REPLACING THEiI "WITH
REGULARS.
Wsatliinatnn June 4.— ln order to prevent misap
prehension as to the future policy of the "War De
partment respecting the military forces In the
Philippines, Adjutant-General Corbln made a brief
statement of the fact* in the case to-day. He said
there had been no change of policy since the de
parture of General Otis, and that none was con
templated. Under the law the entire volunteer
army now serving In the Philippines will go out
o f existence on June 80. ISOI, and the problem be
fore the war Department is how to get the thlrty
or.e thousand men of that farce home before the
date named, at the same time relieving them with
ether troops of the Regular establishment as far
as possible, Without loss of military prestige In the
Philippines and without material disturbance of
the present military organization.
General '■■-■• m says It Is propose! to maintain
an army of forty thousand. Regulars in the Phil-
I; pines as long as rt»q-ulred. and to co this it will
be necessary to draw on the troops now In Cuba.
The Army in the Philippines at present numbers
airout sixty-two thousand men, equally divided be
tween Regulars and volunteers. All the volun
teers are to be brought home and mustered out at
the place of enlistment on June 30 of next year,
and in order to accomplish thin with certainty
and with the least embarrassment the homeward
movement will begin early In the coming Novem
ber. As was the case with the volunteers for the
■war with Spain, they will be brought home as far
as possible In dM order of their departure from
the United States. To do this wfll tax the trans
port service to Ita utmost, and a good margin of
time arm be allowed so aa to guard against any
possible disarrangement of plans by unforeseen
ar.d :-avoi<labla delays. The plan Is to have all
the men at their homes and their accounts with
the Government closed on th* last day of their
term of enlistment. This Is a task of enormous
proportions, and will tax the powers of the entire
military establishment to the utmost from, now
until It is accomplished*
In order that there may be no immediate re
duction of the force under General Man Arthur, it
has been arranged to send Regular troops to the
Philippines as rapidly as possible to take the
pieces of departing volunteers. Orders have been
issued for the assembling of the 6ta Cavalry at
San Francisco for transportation to Manila. One
detachment of that regiment will sail about June
15 and another about July i. It is believed that
many of the troops in Cuba can be relieved from
duty in that country soon after the elections,
•which take place en June 15. In case the condi
tions Justify It, these troops will be brought home
tnd assigned to home stationa. In order that they
may be utilized in recruiting the Army in the Phil
ippines.
General Corbin says It is incorrect to state that
the time of the volunteer army is to be extended
or that reinforcements are to be sent to the Phil
ippines, the facts being that the volunteers axe
to be brought home for disfcandment and enough
Regulars sent there to give General MacAxthur
forty thousand men to maintain the supremacy of
the United State* and carry out the plans for civil
government of the Taft Commission.
MACARTHUR REPORTS REBEL. LOSSES.
Washing-ton, Jun« 4. — Secretary Boot to-day an
swered tha Senate resolution inQUlring as to the

subject, tha Secretary sent the inquiry to General
Mac Arthur, and received the following reply, dated
to-day, -which wu submitted to Congress:

TEE XEW-TORK TO GO TO XEWPORT XEWit.
DAMAGED AMERICAN I.rN*ETI NOT ABLE TO CROSS
FOR REPAIRS.
The American liner New-York, -which lost her
port propeller on her last voyage to this port, will
not return to England for repairs, as was planned,
bat will go to Newport News Instead. This change
Js due to the discovery that the crankpin of the
etarboaxd shaft Is badly damaged, and Is too weak
to allow of a transatlantic voyage. The New- York
■was to have gone across by the use of the star
board screw, and to have received a new port
Bcrew on the other eide. It Is believed that the
crar.kpin of the starboard shaft was injured by the
fame submerged derelict which carried away the
port screw.
Tne St. Louis, of the American Line, will arrive
h*-re on June 13 with the new material for the New-
York. This will be transferred to the latter, and
tY.~ will at one* proceed under her own steam to
Newport News for repairs. She will not be able
to r»«':n!e her regular trips until July.

LAST OF THE BANDITS KILLED BY RURAL
GUARDS.
Santiago, Cuba, June 4. — Rural guards killed
Juan Gonzalez, a notorious outlaw, and four
companions near Sagua yesterday. Gonzalez
had been arrested several times, but he always
escaped conviction becsmse witnesses feared to
testify him. When arrested at Bayamo
two months ago he called upon the Mayor and
the principal witnesses against him, demanding
that he be securely bound upon a horse during
the journey to Manjanlllo for trial. He ex
plained this request by saying that he knew the
rural guards would kill him and then report
that he had tried to escape.
The officers of the rurales who killed him say
that Gonzalez and hi 3 band were slain In a fair
fight, but there are natives who say that the
outlaws were taken by strategy and then de
liberately shot. Color is given to this report by
the fact that not one of the guards was injured.
The Gonzalez band was the last of the well
known brtg-and organizations !n this Province.
GOMEZ RETURNS TO HAVANA.
Havana, June 4. — General Maximo Gomez ar
rived here this morning. He was met by repre
sentatives of various political societies and an
enthusiastic crowd, ajid was escorted to his
house. On Dassing the palace General Gomez
stood up in his carriage and saJuted Governor-
Genera! Wood, who was on the balcony.
On arriving: at his house General Gomez made
a brief address, in the course of which he said
he hal kept his promise to return to Cuba, and
that he had never intended to turn his back
upon her people.
A larjre demonstration In his honor will be
giv^n to-morrow night.
TRIP OF THE CUBAN TEACHERS.
Havana, June 4. — AJexis E. Frye, Superintend
ent of Schools, announces that all the prepara
tions for the Journey of the Cuban teachers to
the I'nlfd States are well forward. The teach
ers, by the order of General Wood, will be paid
their salaries at the port of departure, a total
of $96.«J00. Almost exactly half the entire num
ber of teachers have applied to go, namely,
1,750. Only three hundred have been refused,
as no more thaxi 1.450 can be accommodated.
The transport Sedg-wlck will carry 475 women,
the Crook 325 men, and three other transports
will take both men and women. About 625 of
the latter and 625 of the former are going.
With reference to the question of teaching;
English in the schools, Mr. Frye saya that all
the children will want to learn It, and that, if
the subject is made voluntary they will elect to
be instructed in English.
TE2AS TRAIN ROBBERS ELUDED.
WHILB THEY TRIED TO KILL EXPRKS3 MES
SENGER ENGINEER GOT TRAIN AWAY.
Long-view, Tex., June 4.— The northbound "Can
nonball" train on the International and Great
Northern was held up after midnight at Price's
switch, sixty miles south of this city. A pile of
ties was placed on the track, and as the train came
to a stop three masked men climbed into the en
gine. They forced the engineer and firemen to
uncouple the mall, baggage and express cars and
pull them out two miles from the remainder of the
train. The robbers then commanded the express
messenger to open the door cf his car.
Failing to get any response, the robbers made the
fireman break a hole In the end of the car. While
this was being done the fireman begged the mes
senger and baggage master not to ehoot. The mes
senger, who was well protected by a barricade,
said he would kill the first man to enter the hole.
The fireman was forced In. and the messenger
fired past his head, barely missing the robbers,
who then undertook to kill the mesenger by shoot-
Ing through the side of the car. lii the confusion
the engineer crawled away to his engine, pulled the
throttle wide open and left the robbers behind. A
quick run was made to Jacksonville, fifteen miles
north, where bloodhounds were secured to chase
the robbers.
NATIOyAL PARK BANK ELECTION TO-DAY,
RICHARD DELAFTE-LD LIKELT TO SUCCEED ED
WARD E. POOR AS PRESIDENT.
The directors of the National Park Bank will
meet to-day to elect a president to succeed Edward
E. Poor, who ten days ago submitted his resig
nation because of ill health, and It is understood
that their choice will fall upon Richard Delafleld,
now vlc€»-preEident. Mr. DelaneUl has been a di
rector of the Park Eank since December, 1890, and
vico-prssldent since June 18, 1896. Before connect
ing- himself with the active administration of the
bank he had been engaged in the California
trade as senior member of. the firm of Delaneld
* Co, Mr. Dela is a director of the Plaza and
..lount Morrla banks, both of which are com rolled
by National Park Bank Interests; a director and
vice-president of the Colonial Trust Company, and
a director of the National Surety Company, the
Frankfort-American Insurance Company and Ul9
Thuxingla Fire Insurance Company. He la a mem
ber of the Union League, Tuxedo, New-York Ath
letic and Racquet and Tennis Clubs of this city.
PRICE, M'CORMICK d CO. LIQUIDATION.
There •were rumors on the Street yesterday that
a large amount of the collateral held by the banks
for loans made to Price. McCormiek & Co. had bren
liquidated in the open market. This was practically
denied by some of the officials whose banks made
the loans, but it was admitted that there had been
some liquidation of these stocks. It was also re
ported that the firm had offered to make a settle
ment with their Cotton Exchange creditors on the
basis of 50 cents on the dollar, but this was not
confirmed. Mr. Curl the assignee, announced
that he was not yet abie to mak? public a schedule
of the firm's assets and liabilities. •
The settlement of Seymour, Johnson & Co.'s af
fairs is said to be making satisfactory progress,
ar.d A6ei«nee Hayes will probably issue a state
ment to-day.
RULES FOR COXTESTS AT PARIS.
A. G. 3pald!ng, Director of Sports at the Paris
Exposition, has Issued Instructions to the various
athletes who will compete at the Parts contests In
relation to the difference between the rules gov
erning shot putting over there and the rules here.
Instead of being put from a circle the shot will be
put from a square, and the measurement will be
from the nearest break In the ground direct to
the square or prolongation of the lines on each
side. This in similar to a rule m vogue in America
many years ago. The discus will also be thrown
from a square instead of from a ring. In the in
ternational tug of war the teams will consist of
six men each.
Mr. Spalding says that the handicapping will
probably be conducted by the officials of the Union
of French Societies of Athletic Sports, tinder whose
rules all competitions will take place.
The contests designated in the official programme
as weight throwing contests will consist of putting
the shot and throwing the hammer and discus,
they having eliminated the throwing of the rifty
slx pound weight. Any style of hammer handle
can be used.
The pole vaulting rules have apparently been
modelled after the English rules, and the American
pol« vaulters will rind that they will be severely
handicapped in this respect, for in America they
have eliminated the climbing of the pole, while
Englishmen are allowed to do this. ;

MORE STRANGE THINGS AT GRAVESBXD.
THE KEEXE FILLY CAP ANT) BELLS A FAST o>fE.
The turf boom Is still flourishing, and tha at
tendance at Gravesend -was wonderfully large for
a Monday. Amazlnsr Indeed must be the profits
already heaped up by the Brooklyn Jockey Club.
It is not a highly meritorious body. In many
things its management has b«*r. greedy and gTasp
ing. No thought of promoting the noblest sport
with the broadest aims has been effective in the
councils of this club. Its ruling purpose has been
to squeeze from the public, the betting- ring, the
poolrooma and the telegraph companies the largest
revenues possible. When this association had. Its
notorious fight with the telegraph companies and
the poolrooms years ago, shameful Invasions both
of public rights arid private rights were practised
arrogantly and audaciously upon Its grounds. It
will be a. benerit to Kings County, to the Borough
of Brooklyn, to Long Island, to New-York and to
the American tnrf when avenues and street* are
laid out through these grounds and the betting
ring is abandoned forever.
In several contests at this meeting sickening
messes were served up in the name of sport.
Nevertheless, so absorbing is the passion for racing
this year that a populous company passed through
the gates yesterday, and paid tribute to the million
aire "sports" and politicians who hold the stock.
The mrf boom is kept up In the face of obstacles,
abuses, evils and wrongs. In some of yesterday's
affairs It was painfully plain that trickery and
Jobbery were rampant as they have been in past
teaaons at this course. This was especially true of
the last race. Who can doubt now that the Jockey
Club was indiscreet when McCae waa tak«n back?
No Jockey who went wrong waa every thoroughly
trustworthy afterward. The same schemers who
tempted him to fall are sure to tempt him a«aln,
and no Jockey once guilty is proof against tempta
tion. Did William Martin ever reform? No rider
who has been tried and found wanting will always
follow the straight and narrow path when he re
sumes riling. Since McCue won the Brooklyn
Handicap with Kir.lev Mack his microscopic head
has become so swollen that he thinks he is saf^s in
trying tricks of any kind. His nding of Kamara
in th« last race was one of several cases In
point. He did not appear to make an effort with
her until It was too late.
James R. Keene is in England, and last week he
saw his colt Disguise 11. by Domino, out of Bal
Gal. run third in the Derby. Mr. Keene adored
Domino. Had the son of Domino been first in the
Derby, Mr. Keene might have had Domino In
bronze, life size, set up over the grave- In which th«
famous horse lies quietly sleeping. An English
nobleman had King Tom. life size, perpetuated In
bronze by a famous sculptor. King Tom was not
so great a racer as Domino was in his two-year
old form, although he was a notable sire. Why
should a Wall Street nobleman lag behind a member
of the British nobility? Why should Mr. Keene
hesitate or linger? Why is It that Domino in
bronze, life size, does not already dominate the
Keene farm? A daughter of Domino, Cap and
Bells, won the Criterion Stakes for two-year-old
fillies yesterday, with the'9p*ed*of a feminine Peri
grine. Cap and Bells was seen for the nrst time
on the turf stage. She was not in front at the
start, but when the irremediable Spencer let her
go, she shot by those In front of her and flashed
into the lead with such, velocity that every one
gasped who beheld her. This Cap and Bells la un
usually fleet. As she had not been In a race be
fore. Ashes. Luerana, Add and Anecdote were pre
ferred to her in the speculation, and James Row*.
Mr. Keene'B trainer, and his friends got 8 to L 7
to 1 and 6 to 1 ns.-alr.st Cap and Bells, whose sire
la T>omlno. and whose dam is Be-n-M-Chree. Cap
and Bflls trotted home, and Rowe is reported to
have won money enough to act as angel for an
other comic opera company. On the Rlalto the
gossips say that when De Wolf Hopper la graduated
from the Weber A Fields training school. Mr. Row»
will Ftar him In an operatta entitled, "The Man of
Three Divorces "
O'Connor talks too much. In fact, he talks so
much that the starter, who wants to do all the
talking himself, dislikes him, and O'Connor la talk-
Ing po rruch that he is rapidly forgetting 1 the little
he ever know about riding. ►"Connor rode the
favorite Aehea In the Criterion Stakes. He could
not have- won with her. Cap and Bells is faster
than Ashes will ever b<». But O'Connor, had his
r*etle«s tongue been buckled down, and had he
held fiLET to the scanty wits which nature gave
him, could have been second to Cap and Bells with
Ashes. By want blundering he threw away sec
ond place to '. ■ rai a.
Did John R. Maiiden err when he sold Luerana
to A. Simons? Mr Madden la not often wrong
when he R-alls horses, but Laerana. p«ems to be a
filly of some value, and It 1* not likely that. A.
Simons paid much for her. But Mr. Madden has
.lust made an important purchase by cable. He
"iKiutrht from t^e Prince of Wales - ..r. Irlnffham,
fall brother to Persimmon and Diamond JuW.ee, the
two colts which have won the Derby for the Prince.
All three are by St. Simon out of P^rdita 11. Mr.
Madden wag bent upon gf-ttinu an English horse
of the best blood for his magnificent breeding
farm. Hamburg Place. in Kentucky. The full
brother of the two Derby winners ought to be a
new St. Simon when he is fed upon Kentucky
blue grass, moistened with true Kentucky dew, the
incomparable old Madden whtakey, the equal of
whfoh cannot be found. That chiefest of runners,
Hamburg himself, should be at the head of the
Hamburg Pin re stud, but in x moment of youthful
Indiscretion Mr. Madden sold Hamburg to Marcus
Daly, who has exiled him to Bitter Root, beyond
the horizon's utmost rim. and Madden cannot get
him back. In his dire extremity he has appealed
to the Prince of Wales, and the Prince, always
kind ar.d generous to Americans, has consented "to
help him out. Having Persimmon as a stallion, the
Prince does not need Sandrlngham, and. desiring
to enrich the American turf with the St. Slmon-
Perdlta cross, he will ship Sandringham to Ham
burg Place. Mr Madden refuses to divulge the
price paid, but everybody knows that the Prince
is fo friendly to America that he would »ell any
of his horses to an American for much less than
he would expect from a Frenchman, or even from
a German.
By the way. should the Prince wish at any time
to expand his stable, and establish an American
branch of it, he could not find an abler and
shrewder agent, manager and resident American
partner than John El. Madden.
The starter's feelings wer»- torn before the last
race, when his worse than worthless barrier was
broken. That barrier of his 's a nuisance and
hurts racing, but he fondles it and cherishes It as
if were a pet Canadian poodle. What a whimsical
body that Jockey Club Is in permitting him to use
such a Canadian monstrosity of a barrier!
Jumping horses often jar things. A few days
ago Lackland was at odds on. Catalepsy, epilepsy,
or something else blocked his speed. Yesterday he
ran second to Governor Gr!g?s. Dr. Elchberg
was an eagle In his soaring last week. Yesterday
he was an earthworm. How those jumpers jump!
Rowe, with Cap and Behs. proved that a trainer
sometimes gets a runner ready for the first race in
which that runner takes part. Burch failed to
have Red Path on edge for the third race. In which
he was the favorite, but was unplaced. Red Path
is superior to Orontas, Scales and Long Isle, the
three that were ahead of him at the finish, but the
three had been seasoned and hardened, and were
ripe. Red Path was not. Decanter was not when
Boron sent him to the post at Washington. The
public will be prudent In not touching the Hitch
cock horses until public racing has proved them to
be thoroughly fit.
Every one of th* six favorites was defeated.
Tsn't the Grnvegend track ■ "bad little hole." as
one of the foremost trainers in America calls it?
It has been prolific of queer manipulations on tha
part of certain owners, trainers. Jockeys and pro
fessional Ramblers ever since it was opened. Mc-
Cue'a ride on Kinnlkinnlo in the fifth race was
similar to the rides which earned him a suspension
In 1E39. and possibly it was prompted by th« same
people who pulled the strings which made him act
■ u-.. a Pint* and " idv show last year
Maximo Gomez, at handsome odds, won the fifth
race with Turner up. Fir«arm, ridden by Spencer,
was second. When Michael Clancy, former owner
of Maximo Gome*, saw the victory of the horae
which he worshipped, the horse that was bo cruelly
taken from him in a s*»llin* race by F. M. Taylor,
sobs almost choked his utterance. Then he lifted
up his voice and wept i' md. Later he delivered a
long oration on the wickedness of deafening men
who would deprive a poor man of his only comfort
In life. Clancy was Dathettc until a callous listener
coldly siiKjr' l st* > <l. "It was your own fault. Mike
Why'dM you put him In that selling race so cheap?"
Then Clancy turned his back on his unfeeling audi
ence and walked off In a rage.

Poor pitching by Kltson was responsible for
the defeat sustained by the champions at Washing
ton Park. Brooklyn, yesterday. Up to and in
cluding tho fifth inning Kitson was gauged for
eleven hits, netting the Chicago team flve runs.
Then the young man was sent to the bench and
the veteran. Kennedy, was called in to stop the
cannonading. Kennedy did hla work, and did it
well, but the damage ww already done and the
home playrrs were beaten.
Griffith pitcned In fine form, although his sup
port was not so good as thAt accorded the home
twlrlers. He showed a disposition to lose control
of the ball In the eighth Inning, but good support
at the trying moment saved him. A double play
by Child* and Ganzel won the day for Chicago.
Jones made the longest drive of tho season, send
ing the ball over the right field fence. tax flrst
time such a hit has been made this season. Dahlen
and McCormiek did some remarkable fielding.

The battle of the "tailenders" at the Polo

The onlookers, however, seemed satisfied because
the Harlem men won. Superior batting carried the
game for the home team. Hawley was In good
humor, and pitched with telling effect. It was an
nounced after the game that the Cincinnati club
would present Smith, the veteran fielder, to the

MORE TAIJC OF A PLATrJRS- DIfHSC
The story that the professional ballplayers ar«
going to form a union and fix a union scale »f
wages, which they will submit to the club owners,
has again appeared. This time It comes from
Philadelphia. The report has been an annual af
fair for the last ten years. This time It is said
that a meeting of deiegates from all the clubs In
the National League will be held In Brooklyn on
Sunday and that Samuel Oompers, president of
the American Federation of Labor, will be present.
One widely known player said yesterday that the
formation of a baseball players' union Is a possi
bility, and added:
It might be a good thing, after all. Andy Free
man wouldn't be able to tine a player COO for mak
ing faces at him, and then keep him out of the
game f"r a couple of years because he refused
to pay it.
If tht ball players' union Is formed, scenes simi
lar to the following will probably occur often:
Place— The bail field.
Walking Delegate (to team manager) — I se»
you have a non-union man on second bag. You
will hay«» to take him out of the game.
Manager— Great Scott, man! Do you know what
you are asking? Why, he's our latest find, and
"he's a peovh! We'll lose the game if he can't
play.
Walking Delegate— Has he got a union card?
Manager — No.
"Walking Deiegate— Then call him In or I'll order
a strike and there will be no game.

BONHOURS. THE FRENCHMAN. COVERS
3»3-."> MILES IN AN HOUR IN A RACE
at PARIS— NOTES OF INTEREST.
When the prediction was made In these coltrmaa
last year that forty miles an hour would be oovarad
on a bicycle, the suggestion was ridiculed la several
places. With the Introduction of motor pacing ma
chines and a more scientific banking of the tracks
It Is now difficult to estimate at what speed that
bicycle can be driven. In a race in Paris recently
Bonhours. the Frenchman, paced by a motor cyda.
covered thirty-nine and three-fifths miles In an
hour. He made that record In a fifty mile race,
but the effort to beat the hour record cost him tha
race, for .->. tired badly In the last few miles, and
Bauge beat him out for the r.r*v miles, covering
the distance In 1:18:42 4-5. •-....' Newark,
was the only American In the race, and he finished
third, fifteen laps in the rear A motor tricycle ta
credited with making 0 miles and £»> yards hi that
hour, and there are thre«* or four riders on both
sides of the Atlantic who believe that they can fol
low a trteycl** at that speed. The professional pro
moters In this country this year will use motor
pacing machines to a lar?» extent, and accidents
are likely to be plentiful. In the bands of an In

The Meadow Brook team was the strongest that
the club has brought Into the field this year. It
was three goals heavier than the- Quartet that de
feated Lakewood last Thursday, th*> aubatltatioa
of W. C. Eustis at No. 1 In place of Harry 3. Pa«a
making the) difference.
Rockaway had ISM strongest individual player,
J. E. Cowdln. the only 9 handicap player ta thai
Polo Association, although there are three) at 10 —
FoxhaM Keene, T. L. Hitchcock, Jr.. and Lawr«nc«
"Waterbury. Cowdin and Rene La Montague, jr.,
played the strong game for Rockaway. and Conony
was efficient at back.
Meadow Brook was magnificent Is its team work.
In long runs up and down the field '" C. Ecstl3
always kept well to the- fore, with "Whitney and,
George P. Eustis behind, the one on the ball bains; .
carefully guarded by the other. When the mkidla
man missed the hall the one behind took It up and
nothing was lost. This clever system was worked^
to perfection by the light blues, and It gained many
points. As an accurate goal striker "vV. C :VistLa>
. demonstrated that he has few equals. Recognizlajf
this fact the bail was generally played into 3astla'a
hands for the critical goal stroke. Benjamin NlcoU
was much quicker at back than last week, and
G. P. EustU was well up to the mark.
The victors wen better mounted th.-.n their op
ponents, and W. C. Kustts was particularly notice
able for his speedy ponies. The fastest on© oa th*
field was the Texan pony Trilby, which Morton,
W. Smltn. ot State-i Island, .- •■ : last year. and.
wslch he recer.tiy sold to Clarence Mackay. Eu*
tis r&.le the pony superbly.
The flrst period was a remarkable period ot cloasi
play, and Kcx-kaway surprised the critics by It*
■rand defence.
The second period wai in direct contrast, i*
nine goals were made, eight gotni? to Meadow
Brook's credit. Cowdin won wme reward for him
brilliant work agairst Meadow Brook In th« first
quarter by knocking- the ninth goal, mo erst (or
Roekaway.
Rene La Montagne's goal in th« third period
was one of the star features. It was done la
fifteen seconds. Cowdin got the all on th« throw
in after G. P. Eustis's goal. He carried it partway
down the field, when La Montagne struck; it a
powerful stroke and sent it straight between th«
posts.
G. P. Eustis made the only score In th» founSa
period. Conover made one severe foul In crossing
G. P. Eustis. and this, with thr*« safeties, cose
Rocka-way one and a quarter goals.
