Yale's hope.-, are brighter at th» end of the second
week. The men are all in good condition with the
exception of Aucmiclosj.. of the four-oars, who has
been suffering from ■wlarla and probably will be
unable to row. They are all in good spirits, and
while not overconfident are determined, at least, to
make a creditable showing. The weather and
water conditions have been more favorable this
week than last, ■lthovgh the crews were driven
Into Norton's Cov<» two or three times for practice.
The crews have been able to work together better,
as the order has In the main remained fixed, unlike
last week. The men have became accustomed to
their new shell and find It satisfactory.
The work of the week for the 'varsity ha« not
been easy; and vet not enough to endanger over
training. Three times rows have been taken, the
fall course being rowed over twice and the two
mile stretch once. Tuesday morning the course
was covered in 20:34. The next time was hardly a
test o.f speed, being more of a paddle, and was
covered In 21 minutes. The attention of Dr. Gallau
det has been given mostly to perfecting the recov
ery and steadying the boat, with noticeable im
provement as the result. The order In which the
crew will undoubtedly row Thursday is: Cameron,
stroke; Bladgrn. 7; Allen, 6; Brock. 5; Kunzig. 4;
Neidecken, 3; v . kes, 2; Williams, bow Chittendcn
Mui-h more attention has been given the four-oars
during the week, and considerable Improvement is
manifest. Auoincloss, who was stroking the crew
during the lirst part of the week, was put in at
No. 2. Mitchell at No. i and Hooker at stroke
AndncloEt's illness made necessnry another change
and Mitchell was transferred to No. 2, with Cross
at No. 3. The many changes of the week before
kept the men In the four oar crew uncertain, and
consequently tl.ey were unable to get ahead much
in practice. The settled order and the extra atten
tion have effected A marked alteration, and the out
look is decided!; more hopeful.
There has been but one change in the freshman
crew since coming here; Aucincloss, brother of
No. I In the four-oared . r.--w. Is unable to row on
account of a trained ankle, and Bargent has re
placed him. The form at the freshmen has been
pood all along, but it has been a question if the
boat was not lacking in snap and speed. Consider
able improvement In this respect has been shown
within the last few days, and apparently the
coaches reel »ha; the crew is fit for the test of next
There have been many visitors here during the
week, and all of them seem to expect that the
races will prove unusually interesting.
Poujrhkeepsie, X. T.. Juno 23.— The Columbh
'varsity crew made its fir • trial row over th»
four mile course this noon. Both crews were late
In getting on the water, as the morning was con
sumed in riptrine- washboards to the boats, and it
was nearly 12 o'clock when they left the boat
house. Hanlan had them row directly to the head
of the course, whore the [varsity drew up on the
line, with the freshmen ten lengths in advance.
They started at 12:09:20. and finished the trial at
12:30:10, making the time for the four miles 20£0.
While this is not remarkably fast work, as com
pared v.'ith the rrcord times of the course, it is
consider*.! !• all connocted with the crew as
creditable, in view 01 all the setbacks that Colum
bia nap had. and the men suy that they could
not possibly have done it four days ago. There
fore they giv» H.inl^n oil the credit, md are de
lighted because he promises that they will be able
to do it at least a minute faster before the day
of the race. All conditions were favorable, the
water being perfectly smooth, mid running a good
strong ebb.
There was a complete shakeup In th-* Columbia
freshman crew this morning, Hull. Smithers and
Wolff being taken out and Townsend, Beekman
and Clark substituted. The new crew rowed in
this order: Bow, Clark; No. 2. Earle; No. 3.
O'l-aughlin; No. -). Towr.send; No. 5, Bartholomew;
No. 6. Beekman; No. 7. Weeks, and stroke, Orr.
It was noon when the Wisconsins got into their
shells, as they had waited all the morning for the
rough water to subside. They rowed about two
miles down the river and back, ODea coaching
them from the coxswain's seat in the freshman
boat, to which crew he paid particular attention.
A cursory view of the Wisconsin "varsity crew
would indicate that It Is up to the standard of the
one of last year.
The Pennsylvania crews arrived at Highland at
2 o'clock this afternoon.
While the Columbia 'varsity crew was making its
time row this afternoon it Indulged in an im
promptu race with Haitian's reorganized freshman
squad. When the 'varsity started from the head
of the course the freshmen were waiting for them
about ten boat lengths down the river, and they
were a few strokes late in getting the water. I lan
lan, following on the launch, told the 'varsity to
take it easy and to row an average stroke. Cap
tain Mackay obeyed, giving his men a thirty-four
stroke throughout the first and second miles. They
grained slowly but surely on the freshmen, and in
the beginning of the third mile the 'varsity made a
spurt of thirty-nine, catching up with the fresh
own near the Pennsylvania house, two miles
and a half from the s:art.
After that the youngsters, although they had
rowed more than two miles, increased their price,
and the gain of the big crew was not so percepti
ble. •Ing under the bridge the 'varsity was only
half a length ahead, but immediately thereafter
Maokay again ran up his stroke to thirty-nine and
forty, and his crew spurted nearly all the way to
the finish, which they reached five lengths ahead
of i he freshmen.
The Wisconsin crew went out for practice at 5
o'clrx-k this evening. Andrew O'Daa, the couch,
busied himself all the afternoon rearranging the
rigging of the shell Camilla, the old 'varsity boat,
for the use of the freshmen, and lie was still at
work when the yacht Walla Walla, which had
been tendered to him for coaching purposes came
up to the wharf.
ODea stopped his work and put the freshmen
into the shell while the 'varsity went out in their
new shell, the K. P. aims. The senior boat pulled
away from the ether crew going up. Thai was,
from the 'varsity point of view, fairly good rowing;
but. on reaching the starting point and returning
over the four mile course, it was another story.
The 'varsity picked up the freshmen at the two
mile mark and there was a livery scrap for a
mile. In that distance the youngsters pulled away
from their elders i; a length. The Wisconoinfl will
row -morrow because their coach says that they
absolutely require the exerr-lse. They" will go out
hi 11 a. m.. unil probably again at 4 p. m.
None of the other crews expect to go on the river.
There will be no change in the freshmen boat.
Murphy, who rows No. 2. will come out, because
of a slightly sore leg, and Dean, a subs II will
take his place, temporarily, though ODea expects
Murphy to be able to row it: the race:
The Pennsylvania contingent, who arrived at
Highland at 2 o'clock this afternoon, found the car
containing their equipment awaiting them. The
equipment consisted of eight oared shells and a
four oared, with oars and other trappings. Th.->
crews- went out for a row of about live mllfs before
They rowed In the following order, which Ward
thinks will remain the arrangement for the races.

Mr Courtney and his Cornell crews arrived by the
West Shore Railroad at 7:30 o'clock to-night, after
an all day journey from Ithaca. They brought two
eight-oared shell*, one four-oared and a pair-oared
gig. Their launch is on the way, but It had not ar
rived whenlthey got here.
The Columbia crews were out again this evening,
and Hanlan worked them as hard as ever.

W. A. La Due did rot capture the team pursuit
race at the meet of the Kings County Wheelmen
at Manhattan Beach yesterday, but he did make
one of the pluckiest and most remarkable rides
ever seen by an amateur or Brofesstonal rider in
this or, according to well established records, in
any other country- After the first mile of the
race La Due had only one comrade left to help
him. After the fifth mile La Due was forced to
travel alone, and he accepted the challenge with
all of tho speed and courage he showed In some
of his short distance races last year. L naMed he
travelled more than seventeen miles against the
other teams, and when at last he seemed about
to overhaul the only remaining team on the track
he fell exhausted and unconscious from his wheel,
making the most sensational ending of a bicycle
race ever seen at the track by the ocean.
It was at a meet held by this same club tad
year that W. F. Wahrenberser made a similar al
though not nearly so wonderful a record, and Wah
reni.erjrcr was heralded throughout the country as
a rider of marked courage and endurance. A dem
onstration meeting was held, and Wahrenberger
was toasted and presented a loving cup for his
unprecedented performance. And now La Due, a
Cold Spring lad. astojiishes even the veteran racing
men and trainers with a performance worthy of
going down in cycle racing history with the nerve
wrecking ride behind a locomotive made by Charles
M. Murphy last summer.
The annual meet of the Kings County Wheelmen
is always looked forward to by those fond of cycle
racing, nnd In the face of rather threatening
weather yesterday the attendance was good. Most
of the well known professionals had entered, and
about .ill of the speedy amateurs in the district
had announced their intention to compete. Good
sport wns assured, but the best efforts of the
professionals paled into insignificance compared
to the work of one amateur, who until yesterday
had not bnt-n placed In the first class by some of
the expert p. La Due. won the State championship
of the League of American Wheelmen last year,
and secured third place at the League of Ameri
can Wheelmen National meet held at Boston. In
a recent race at Newburg he showed that he was
determined as well as strong, but in his race yes
terday he gave nn Illustration of courage, deter
mination and stamina seldom, If ever, displayed on
any fie' rl of sport. Veteran six day riders watched
this young man's struggle with open mouthed won
der and could not understand it. Experts of the
priaerti and football field said that a man might
work that way for his college or club, but never
for money or a wager. Others, more ancient and
classical, compared I>a Due with the Spartan
lif-onidas. who held up the Persian army at Th*>r
mopylse Another suggested that the new cycling
hero be called "Leonldas" La Due, and the name
will certainly sound better than pome of the Idiotic
nicknames given to the riders in this section.
The race in question was called an intercluh team
pursuit race, unlimited. Each of four clubs selects
its three best riders, and teams are started at four
given points an the track at an equal distance from
each other. The riders pace and assist their club
mates until exhausted and then drop out. the sur
viving team or man to win the race. Yesterday the
Harlem Wheelmen started Lake, Schriver and
Bedell; the Kings County Wheelmen, Sehofleld,
Brown and Rogers; the Newburg Wheelmen, La
Due, Thomas and Grace, and the Riverside Wheel
men, Retliff, McClelland and Beyermnn. Grace quit
after going a mile, and this left the Newburg team
handicapped with only two men. For two miles the
teams kept their distances. Then the Riverside
team began to waver, and at four miles the New
burg pair passed them and put them out of the
struggle. At five miles Thomas found the pace too
fast for him. and he was forced to retire, leaving
La Due alone on the track to keep at the unequal
ta?k. Schriver quit a minute later, and the Harlem
team had only two men left. The Kings County
team was still intact. Harlem having Lake and
Bedell left, while La Due carried all the hopes of
the Newburg delegation. Aid he was fighting the
unequal battle nobly, for he was actually gaining on
the other teams.
Ten miles were made at a terrific clip, with La
Due having the best of it, the time being 24:16 3-3.
At eleven miles Bedell quit, and Lake whs also left
alone to fight for 'he honor of Harlem. With the
Kings County team still Intact the Kings County
Wheelmen slowly overhauled Lake. Schofield left
his fellow?, and by sprinting for a furlong he man
aged to pass Lake and send the latter from the
track. This spurt, however, put Schofield our of
the race as well.
And then the real struggle began, which ended
only with the utter collapse of a rider who did
not know what the human heart is capable of
withstanding. The spectators by this time were
upon their feet petting frantically, and every time
the plucky Cold Spring man passed the stand
he was applauded to the echo. The spectators
fairly leaned over in their seats and appeared
anxious to get out on the track and help out the
determined fellow, who had fought so nobly
against such terrible odds. Between the eleventh
and twelfth miles La Due gained steadily ou the
Kings County Wheelmen team, and the eyes of
the three remaining men seemed fixed in their
sockets. It was clearly a battle of pluck and en
durance. In this mile La Due gained at least thirty
yards. The fifteen miles were made in 38 IS 2-5. ah 1
the seventeen miles In 41:52 2-5. a kilting pace for
an unpaced rider. Brown and Rogers shivered and
shook on their wheels, but could not afford to
stop with that flying demon In maroon and Mack
chasing them. At twenty miles La Due had fur
ther decreased the distance sepu rating him from
the Kings County Wheelmen team, making the
distance In 49:25 3-5. At twenty-two miles La Due
was within 2"" yards of his rivals, and his htilr was
matted In front of his face so that it whs impossi
ble to sea ills expression from the grandstand.
Another lap was made, and 1j& Due was within
one hundred and fifty yards of the King;' County
Wheelmen team, and not a spectator was seated
at this time. Men. women and children yelled en
couragement to the Cold Spring man until they
were so hoarse that yelling was ptiin. It looked as
if he would win the remarkable struggle in an
other lap or two. When making the turn near the
hotel La Due was seen to throw one hand into the
air. Several riders standing n-..r the track rushed
to catch him as he was seen to falter and then
topple to the cemented track. Hut they were too
late, for La Due. without apparently slackening his
speed a particle, hit the cemented track with a
thud and then rolled over. According to his own
statement and that of the physician who whs
hastily summoned, La Due was unconscious before
he struck the track. Anxious and willing hands
picked up the rider and carried him, stark and
still, to the training quarters. A hypodermic in
jection of nltro-glycerine was given, and the rider
was able to sit up a few minutes later, m- still
wandered, however, and bis talk was Irrational
Ten minutes later he was himself again, but weak,
for he tottered like a child learning to walk when
he tried to leave his rot. When questioned, La Due
said that he had not been hurt by the fall, as far
as he could -ell, and that he di.i not remember
anything after mnkine that uprver turn of the j
track. He said thfW the last thing he could recol
lect was when he was passing the stand. He real
ized that the people were cheering him on. and
he could see his rivals just ahead of him. "Then I
tried to put on an extr . spurt, and as I did so my
heart seemed to burst, and then I went blind and
knew no more." The physician said that few hu
man hearts could stand such a strain for that
length of time, and that La Due had simply col
lapsed utterly. He did not think that any bad re
sults would follow the accident. The officials of
the Kings County Wheelmen made the announce
ment that the club would make La Due a handsome
prize for his plucky ride. Then the spectators were
ready to go home, for commonplace racing after
such a performance was trivial and of little mo
The ten mile, paced race between Walter W.

and at the end King won easily. Smith, who is
only fifteen years old. may not be as fortunate as
La "Due when he collapses. Such contests are be

From The Kansas City Journal.
A few days ago the body of Balzer Gftz, one
of the Russian farmers of EKis County, was found
in a field not far from his house. He had been
shot by an unknown assassin for the sake of $30
which he carried on his person. Natural!] there
was a great deal of excitement In the neighbor
hood, and rumors of all sorts became current.
Finally the talk fastened suspicion upon two of the
dead man's neighbors, both Russians, and at the
instance of the Coroner they were arrested. Know-
Ing that many of the Russians held to the ancient
superstition that a murdered man's wounds would
bleed afresh if hi." body should be touched by his
murderer, the Coroner determined to apply this
test. With great solemnity the two accused men
were ushered into the presence of the corpse, the
wounds were bared so all mlsrht see, and the men
In turn were required to place their hands upon
the body and hoid them there while they were
sworn to tell the truth. The men unflinchingly
performed the part that was expected of them, the
wounds refused to bleed, and in the minds of the
Russian bystanders the accused were cleared of
Th» tent had one (pod result, as foolish as It may
appear. It caused the neighbors to look elsewhere
for the murderer, and he was soon discover*^! In the
person of the sixteen-year-old non of the murdered
man. The boy had laid for Ills father and shot him
down, and then ridden away to a nearby village,
where he passed the everlng with his sweetheart.
He tried to (ret this gl.l to prove an allhl for
him by swearing that he was with her at a certain
hour but she would not do It. and then the boy
confessed. He laid he had not killed his father
for the money, but In revenge for cruel treatment.
However, the money was found upon the boy't
person, except a ntna!! amount that he had spent
for a mouth organ and some other trinkets.
Lack stayed by the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht
Club to the end of its three day series. Leaden
skies promised hard weather yesterday mcrnJns;.
and it was Mowing freshly on the Sound till an
hour before the start. Skippers were pacing the
decks trying to size up the onming weather and to
Judge as to what canvas their boats could carry.
A number or yachts that were being towed from
Northern ports to Oyster Bay had to let go a* .1
return to their own shelters, not feeling able to
lake the strain of helm? dragged through the
easterly seaway But allowing for such deductions,
then were still fifty-three racing crart left to start
on gunfire when the wind had dropped to club
toppall power.
When the fleet? gathered at the starting line it
was noticed that the 70-foot»r Rainbow was miss
ing. Her owner. Cornelius Vanderbllt. Jr.. had
judged that his boat was not in tune to race with
the Mlneola. which has had a month to prepare,
and the Rainr»w was sent home before the races
were started. W. K. Vanderbllt. Jr.. was on board
his craft, the Virginia, and Frederick Tarns was
•ISO seen on deck. The Mineola. with August Bel
mont on board, had her largest gafftopsall set as
soon as the skipper perceived the coming light
weather, but the captain of the Virginia had sent
up a clubtopsaJ] of second size, and allowed it to
remain in place, though there was pl?nty of time
to change the kite before the start. This difference
in canvas area aloft probably accounted for some
portion of the Virginia's defeat, as she wanted
every square foot of sail she owned, and more, too.
In the moderate breezes of the day.
In the schooner class the Amorlta End the Qniss
etta measured booms nsrain. oi ! the Syce and
Hussar II st tight conclusions, while the Queen
Mab took the same course OS her walkover, carry
ing her largest clubtopsail. The Syce set her small
Jib-headed gaff topsail, which proved sufficient for
her lejdlnsr of the new Balrd sloop over the course
A large fleet of new raceabouti and special thir
ties contested, and many yawls, cat rigs and small
er craft had a day that seemed made to order for
them. The wind was due east, and remained that
way all day except for some local slants and the
shift southerly late in the day.
This gave all .-lasses i wind abaft abeam on
the north-northwest course to the first mark, a
beat on t/ie east by north on the second leg, and a
broad -• ich back to the home mar*.
The two seventies were together south of the line
until forty-five seconds before the start, and then
they brcke out No. 2 jib topsails and headed for
the line. Suddenly the. Virginia, which was to lee
ward, swerved In behtnd the Mlnrola and lappeJ
her weather quarter, but Wringe did not luff
much, but kept going with a hard pull to get away
clear. The Virginia payed off also, pointing to
windward of the Mineola, but not getting there.
There was about a length and a half between rh'm
on the line. Soon after they got Into a luffing
match and were heading up north-northeast, four
points iff their course. In five minutes more
Wrings began to pay off to- his course, and got
clear away to round the first mark In the lead.
The Qui«setta had her foremast and a yard of
foresail ahead when she crossed with the Amorita
to windward of her. Both went off under small
malntopmast staysails and small working topsails.
The Amorita blanketed her rival on the line and
lit out ahead frcm the start on the due course for
her first buoy, where she rounded with a fair

order: The Veda, the Empronzi. the Kit. the Wa

Edward Kelly's Rochelle led over at 1:45. followed
by the Robin Hood and the Houri. and at 1:50 the
raeeabouts crossed In this order: The Kittle, the
Raider, the Colleen and the Sis. The Scamp and
th« Persimmon crossed before the signal, and on
returning did not come to the line from the pilot
house of the tug to the westerly line boat before
continuing in the race. At 1:55 the Bobs, the Bee.
the Thelga, Mongoose 11. the Spider, the Kildare,
the Mistral, the Catspaw. the Ox. the Gosbird and
the Vera crossed in the order given, followed on
the next signal by the Nora and the Microbe.
The Mine., la was by this time working- out a
las on the beat to the easterly mark, and was
perceptibly leavlnp the Virginia. The schooner La
toaa was also getting away from the Katrlna, and
the easterly murk was rounded by the leaders as
follows: Mlneola. 2:2S:<*v Virginia. 2:32:05; Amorita.
2:46:40; Qulsaetta, 2:4S:10.
These leaders now had the wind well abaft abeam
for the third leg home, and the Mineola and the
Virginia both set balloon foresails and No. 2 jib
topsails on the broad reach for the home mark.

It was here seen that the Syce was ahead of
the Hussar over ten minutes, and that the new
Empronzi was getting left by the Olseau. The
Scamp was leading the raceabouta. The Esperanza.
sailed by Mr. Duryea, was in front of the special
thirties, and Latonla was leading in her match
race with the schooner Katrina by over two mln
i:teg. The yachts all gybed round this mark and
set every available balloon for the first leg of the
second round.
The second sailing of the different courses did not
greatly alter the chances Of the competing boats
as indicated at the turning at the home mark,
though some of the positions were changed. For
instance, the Queen Slab afterward pulled up about
six minutes on the Syce and finished well ahead.
After 5 o'clock the wind went gradually around
to the south and a little to the west, leaving those
yachts which did finish early to beat back to the
mark. The Qttlsse-fta and Other boats shared this
bad luck in being headed off at the 'end of the
race. The yachts finished as follows:
