BARRfCK A TURF LEADER.
EKTS FIRST IX THE TIDAI*
THE REMARKABLE CAREER OP 1 ONE OP AMER
ICA'S FOREMOST RACING MEN.
The weather on Long Island yesterday was de
lichtfu!, neither too hot nor too cool, but the racing
et Sheepthead pleased few except the bookmak
er.-. James R. Keene's Voter was at Itol6 In the
first dash, but Spencer was so carelees that Voter
rsrron-Iy escaped defeat. Mr. Whitney's two-year
old The Rhymer was at a Ehort price in the big
fir-Id In the second scramble, but the starter and
Turner, who rode The- Rhymer, were so derelict
that The Rhymer was not first, eeoond or third.
In the third clash CJawsr.n rode The Kentuckian in
a fashion which should have got him Into trouble,
end The Kentuckian came home third, behind
Kr.icht of the- Garter and Maid of Harlem.
The fourth act was the Tidal Stakes for three
year-oifis at a mile, and this was a Peking
ratio. 'Farmer" Leigh, the man with a hoe,
pent two to the post Ildrim and Vulcaln,
but this was the farmer's day for hoeing, and
not for scooping. Neither Ildrim nor Vulcaln took
a place. McMeekln, owned by W. M. Barrlck. was
a strong favorite, and the winner. Mr. Barrlck la
doing co well that. It Is said, he hopes to be elected
a steward of the Jockey Club. It ie reported that
Alexander S. Wllllama, former captain of the
Tenderloin, will support Mr. Barrlck's candidacy,
and will present the records of Mr. Barrlck's
friendship with Verriey Barton and ■with the Fisher
in whose net Captain Williams exhibited so tender
and paternal an Interest for many years. Some
reasons ego. the G. Hastings stable, whose
revenues came from Tenderloin mints, was
prominent or. the turf. Those mints have
rusted, and one of the partners In that stable died
not long ago In an Insane asylum. While the faro
hunk* and the dives protected by Devery and
Croker are open the Fisher stable la likely to pros
per, and what reason is there why an owner of. a
et&tile protected on the turf should not aspire to
the lofty dignity of a stewardship in the Jockey
Club? If Barrlck la fit to race horses under the
rules of the Jockey Club. Isn't he fit to hold a
stewardship if he can get votes enough for the
place? And why should not W. C. Daly ask his
friends to support him for a stewardship? If he
and euch as he are good enough to race horses
under the palladium of the Jockey Club, why is
not W. C. Daly good enough for a stewardship?
Arthur Featheretone and Julius Bauer seem to
think that their Jockey O'Connor Is an immacu
late angel descended from heaven especially to
convince the world that a Jockey can be a fault
less seraph, even If W. C. Daly had him in hand
for years, and sent him out into the world to
vtrk mischief. Don't Featherstone and Bauer
know that O'Connor was an. unscrupulous little
r< when V. . C. Daly had him. and that O'Con
i or pot himseif into trouble repeatedly by his ra*
ra'ity In the foulest of foul riding? The childlike
faith of Featheretone and Bauer that this mia
rhievous urchin, who has been called before the
F'.wards again and again for the foulest of foul
riOlrn;, ha* become an unspeckleJ cherub since
they took charge of him, causes their friends to
weep over them. Hoffman House dinners given
to a jockey by an owner or trainer don't change
a leopard's epots, and they don't change a Jock
er*^ epots. No doubt, the records of the Jockey
Club can be consulted by a properly accredited
Jjwyer. Those records show that this boy O'Con
nor has been punished several times for the foul
est of foul riding, and ought to have been ruled
off the turf long ago for foul ridlnpr. Moreover,
several of O'Connor's rides have been the queerest
of the queer. The records will prove that state
ment also. And his riding of Mesmerist In the
Tidal Slakes was passing strange.
Mesmerist had been backed heavily both for
first and second places. It may be that Mesmerist
rouJd net have outrun the Fisher-Tenderloin racer
McMeekln even if he had been rlden by a great
jockej' instead of O'Connor. But It was plain that
Mesmerist, decently ridden, could have run s*c
end, and could have saved the money of those who
were foolish enough to back Mesmerist for second
place in the expectation that this erudite alumnus
of W. C. Daly's school ct Jockeyship would ride
the colt out emartly for second place. Mesmerist,
with a emart ride, could have got second place,
but O'Connor pulled out Mesmerist from the rail
when he had eecond place safe and let David Gar
rick through. Therefore David Oarrlck. who had
been supported profusely by Pitteburg Phil, camo
in second to McMeekln. It was highly significant
to every one who had watched Pittsburg Phil's
betting on David Garrlck, when O'Connor pulled
Mesmerist out from the rail In order to let David
Garrick get Eecond money from Mesmerist. The
Tidal Stakes had nothing agreeable. It was twisted
and awry. If William M. Barrick and men of his
■tamp are to win celebrated and important stakes,
how much superior to a keno game will racing ba
then?
Spencer's riding of the odds-on favorite Hand
work in the f.fth race was truly Spenceriaa and
truly disgraceful. That Rogers-Rose betting ring
combination has done an immense amount of in
jury to high class fport in the last dozen years,
6nd Spencer has done even more. Thanks to
The Par.':—: defeated Handwork a colt legiti
mately and estly superior to The Parader.
It wan an afternoon of racing which no honor
ebie and upright American will recall with pride.
Why do Intelligent persons go to a track to re
ceive cuch treatment as the travellers to Sheeps
head received ye.«:erday? If they must bet, they
ran bet in the poolrooms, and escape paying $2
*-a<_h for grandstand tickets, and escape, also,
paying exorbitant railroad fares. Racing in this
St^te is now mismanaged to a melancholy extent,
and the public is not properly protected from the
tricks of unscrupulous schemers.
The programme to-day is wretchedly unattractive.
Anybody who goes to tho course to 6ee so dull an<*
<li«mal a programme decided will waste his time.
S;«-neer'F riding yesterday was worse than any
of thp operations of the men who attacked Brook
lyn Rupid Transit values in Wall Street. It Is
tru^ Voter was rat in the first race, but that
result was due to Voter's speed, and not to Spen-

cer, whose singular riding gave to some observer!
the impression that he was trying to lose the raoe.
voter was first by a few Inches only. It was a
close call.
Rutter won the second race on Telamon, McCue
won the third on Knight of the Garter. Mitchell
won the Tidal on McMeekln McCue won the Spring
Stakes on The Parader, and O'Connor won the last
race on Dolando.
Taral rode Gold Or In the first race with striking
energy, force and skill. He outrode the absurdly
overpraised Spencer completely, but Voter's won
derful sprinting speed got the verdict.
Telamon, the winner of the second race, bought
by Samuel Hildreth for n,OOO, an advance of $1,200
over his entered price. Hildreth also bought Do
lando, winner of the closing race, for $1,600.
The Kentuckian was lame after his race. Claw
son dismounted without permission and was called
before the stewards. His explanation, of course,
settled matter*.
J. "White, tha trainer of Toboka, claimed The
Rhymer after the second race for $1,630. The
Rhymer was entered to be sold for. $900.
James Mara, the steeplechase rider, who was
hurt on Saturday, is said to be In a serious condi
tion. It is now believed he is Internally injured.
Ribald scoffers say that Featherstone and Bauer
have- a practice of Durnlng incense every morning
before a statuette of O'Connor.

LITTLE BEATS PARET IN MBTOPOIJTAN
CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT.
The ■•cond day's play in the Metropolitan cham
pionship lawn tennis tournament drew a large
crowd yesterday to th© grounds of the West Side
Tennis Club, at Eijjhty-ninth-st. and Central Park
West, and some brilliant tennis was Been. Ray
mond D. Little Taj th« star of the afternoon, and
be put up a surprisingly strong game in the cham
pionship Bineles against Paret, beating: him in
Straight sets. These two men had met twice be
fore this season, and both times Paret was the vic
tor, but yesterday the Prlncetonian was In a win
ning- Btreak. and In the first set he fairly ran away
from his adversary, Paret not getting a single
game. The veteran made a better stand in the sec
ond set and pulled up to 4—5 after Little had been
within a stroke of the match at 3—2, but his effort
was fruitless, for the Princetonlan ran out the set
with the next game. Paret » play •was much
weaker than usual, but the college crack showed
splendid speed and fairly earned his victory. As
there is no other dangerous man left on his side of
the draw, Little is now expected to reach the finals
without much opposition.
The second match of Importance was that between
Davidson and "A. Player," who is one of the
strongest of the local experts. In fact a former
holder of the Metropolitan championship, who has
entered under this norn de plume. Davidson lost
the first Bet by 7—5. but he played a plucky, uphill
game in the second after the score had reached
3—l against him, and finally pulled out the Bet by
c— i. Davidson will meet Wright, at Harvard to
day, and the winner will play Alexander, <>t Prince
ton ' in the peml-finalfl to-morrow.
In the lower half Bostwlck lost his first set to
Glllespie. a promising you;. player from Morris
town but pulled out the match on the safe side.
He will meet Little this afternoon for a place in the
semi-finals, while Plummer, of Yal*. will play W.

HARVARD WINS FROM TALE
SECOND GAME IN SERIES TAKEN BY
CAMBRIDGE MEN.
New-Haven, June 26. — Yale lost her class day
game this afternoon to Harvard, the score being
8 to 0. The game up to the seventh Inning had
tew features to keep the Interest of the spec
tators. It was pretty much a pitchers* battle up
to that point, both Robertson, for Yale, ajid
Stlllman. for Harvard, being In good condition
and their delivery •well under control.
Harvard led off In the seventh Inning; with a
batting streak, finding Robertaon for two base
hits, Clark and Btlllman finally scoring on a
two base hit cracked out by Coolldge. Sullivan,
for Yale, sent out the only three base hit of the
game. His narrow escape at third was followed
by poor Judgment in the order sent to him to
run and to the batter, Hlrsch, to bunt, Sulli
van's understanding being that he should run
on any hit. Sullivan ran, but Hlrsh failed to
hit. Sullivan was caught twenty feet from th«
home plate by Reifl, who waited for him to
come. After that Yale was out easily, Hlrsh
flying to Laughlln. In the next Inning. th« final
one, Harvard Becured her third run by Captain
Camp's error. Laughlln was hit by Robertson
and ran for second on Flncke's hit, Sharpe
threw Laughlln out at second to Camp, but
Camp threw wild to first In an attempt to head
off Fincke. The latter Bcored on George's hit
to the outfield and Hlrsh's error at the home
plate.
It was a heartrending game for Yale, and the
dampening influence on the celebration planned
by the returned graduates was considerable.
The third game la scheduled for next Saturday
In New- York, and will keep the nine In training
over the boat race.
In the seventh inning an unfortunate happen
ing was tha accident to r>evena. He was at bat,
and a R-wlftly delivered straight ball that he
evidently expected to be a curve ball struck him
in the side of the face, badly bruising his nose
and causing a free flow of blood. Physicians
attended him at once, but ke was forced to re
tire from the game, and Laughlin was substi
tuted. Score:

POLO.
BRILLIANT GAME IN CHAMPIONSHIP
SERIES BETWEEN DEDHAM
AND MYOPIA.
As an agreeable change from the uninteresting
game of polo that the Junior players put up on
Monday afternoon, yesterday's battle royal be
tween the Dedham and Myopia crack teams for
the Waldorf Astor Cup fairly bristled with sci
entific play and thrilling Incidents. The Myopia
players caught the popular fancy the moment they
started In for preliminary practice before the
game was called. This team had long carried the
money of the polo sharps, as the Dedhamitei
were looked upon as a younger organization, hav
ing less individual brilliance on the t^am. As
events showed, however, the knowing ones were
astray in their calculations for the third time
this season, as they were when Philadelphia de
feated Devon and Rockaway got the better of the
Quaker quartet. Endurance and steady combina
tion throughout an unusually long bout In the
third period won out for the Dedham team in this
great tussle. By their style of play when racing
out their opponents for full ten minutes of unin
terrupted polo it was evident that they had re
served their strength for just such an emergency.
As lined up by Referee Wheeler, of Devon, at 4:18
p. m. the teams were:
DEDHAM. I MYOPIA.
No. I—Allen1 — Allen Forbes. I X». 1 — G. Rice.
5* 1 £— £• M " Weld. - Vo - Robert G. Shaw. 2d.
No. 3— TV. B. Goodwin. No. 3— H. H. Holmes.
No. 4— Joshua Crane. No. 4— R. L. Agasalz.
At the throw In Aganslz got the ball and forced
It up. and Show carried it out of harm's way and
then cut It. Then a little foozling followed with
the teams bunched. Rice then brought It along
with three heavy strokes the length of the field,
where Shaw and Forbes exchanged until Agassiz
took up th» running. Then a magnificent back
hander from Holmes lined the ball out along the
border. Forbes trying hard to outstrip the demon
in the red cap. But Agassiz was close In waiting,
and. taking the ball cleverly, placed It for Rlee.
who scored first for Myopia amid great applause.
It was seen that Myopia Intended to keep the
ball on Dedham soil as much as possible and rely
upon popping It through the sticks by short, rapid
shots, but this the Dedhamites were prepared for.
and placed their men to obstruct it effectively.
Suddenly the style of play changed to border
tactics by Shaw and Holmes, with Agasslz watching
to carry from centre field when the sphere came
zigzagging his way. But again Dedham saw the
other's game, and much to their surprise, took the
ball out of their hands. Weld carrying from the
middle ground for goal In splendid fashion, and
Forbes pushing Agassiz so close that the latter In
a vain effort to prevent a goal hit the ball so that
it rebounded and went between his own uprights
for the Dedham side. Forbes by this time was
playing royal polo, and his score In the overtime
was well earned and vociferously cheered.
After some blank play to a change of ponies
Forbes again outplayed his opponents in spite of
the fact that the other Dedhamltes were not keep-
Ing- their places well. Shaw and Holmes, however,
were the lions of the second period and played su
perbly into each other's hands. Holmes being
voted a back hand driver without equal.
It was In the third period, though, that Myo
pia's star performer. "Robby" Shaw, showed the
sort of stuff that a champion polo player Is made
of. Weld had made a brilliant run. and Shaw
caught the ball as it returned: then on for a lead
of the field he laid himself out full stretch, but
hie mallet, at the second stroke, flew into splinters,
ruining a grand chance, with three outpointed men
behind him. But with new furniture he got on
again quickly at the border, after Crane had
slipped by Rice and Forbes had held his run up
field. Then Holmes, by a magnificent drive around
the corner, averted disaster and with his stirrups
flying and only knee grip to depend upon he
brought it to the quarter, where Shaw got posses
sion, and with four overhand near side strokes
carried the ball clear down the grreen. the six
other players In pairs racing like fiends and a roar
gclng up from ten thousand throats. Goodwin
tried to ride the clever Mvopean off the ball, but
Shaw would have none of htm and. although he
did not score, his effort was declared by every ex
pert on the ground to be unprecedented.
The closing two period" were rich In runs of an
exciting nature), Crane. Weld and Forbes especially
distinguishing: themselves in this style of play.
Agassiz was the mainstay of the Myopiaa in the
wlndup, and his two final srials. with Rice's clever
one in the last period, did mu.~h to ever, up the
play and leave the knowing ones to wrangle over
the relatU'e playing strength of the Massachusetts
orrnnlzaMor.s.

MAP SHOWING SIDEPATHS IN THIS
STATE— NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Executive Committee of the New-Tork State
Division of the League of American Wheelmen held
a meeting at the State headquarter* !n this city
yesterday. All the members of the committee were
present except H. B. Fulierton, of Brooklyn, and
Ralph D. Webster, of Blmlra. The officers of the
division are taking the liveliest Interest In the
cycle path work throughout the State. Many in
quiries have been recelTed at headquarters for In
formation regarding; certain sldepaths and their
connections. As much of this work has been done
in the last year knowledge regarding many of the
paths is extremely limited even among the veteran
road riders. Thj paths on Long Island are some of
the beet In the State, and a map showing the loca
tion of these paths has already been made. The
division officers will begin work at once on another
map, which will show all the sidepaths in the
State and as well the paths now in course of con
struction and where arrangements are being made
for the construction of other paths. This map
when finished will be distributed among the League
of American Wheelmen members in this State only.
It will be especially valuable to those contemplat
ing long tours through the State. The Executive
Committee realizes also that the weekly report of
the conditions of the roads within fifty miles of
New-Tork ts of material hHp to the division and
of much Interest to the general riding public. Th«
leport has not been issued thlayear, and an effort
Is to be made to revive it. This work Is purely
voluntary on the part of the League of Ameri.-an
Wheelmen members in the different districts, and
an appeal will be made to the member* to forward
to headquarters Information regarding the roads
every Thursday.
The tire question la one of Interest to even* rider
of the- bicycle and the veteran road riders insist
that the Ideal tire will not appear until It Is abso
lutely puncture proof, as well as resilient. Various
preparations have been manu.'actured to be In
jected Into the tires with the idea of making them
self-healing when punctured, but few if any of the
solutions have proved satisfactory. The solution
generally dries up after a time, and then It is of
more harm than service to the tire. At one time
the tire makers refused to guarantee or repair a
tire which had been filled with any of these prep
arations. Now a Brooklyn man comes forward with
the statement that he has Invented a preparation
which will make porous tires an impossibility. The
preparation resembles rubber In solution, except
that It is more like a paste. He says that when
this preparation is heated It can be readily pumped
into a tire, and that It will not dry up like other
similar preparations. He uses about half an ounce
for each tire. In experimenting yesterday he ran
a large hat pin through a tire down* of times, and.
yet there was no escape of air and th« tire Old
not have to be Inflated.
Several wheelmen complained last night that
riders of the bicycle were being discriminated
against at the polo tournament now in progress on
the Parade Ground In Prospect Park, Brooklyn.
The assertion was made that owners of carriages
and equestrians were allowed to ride or drive over
the turf, but that a wheelman was not permitted
to witness the polo game until he had checked hi*
bicycle elsewhere. One wheelman who tried to
trundle his bicycle across the grounds. »o that ha
nr.tght witness the gam* waa ordered roughly by a
policeman to get off the field, and was told that
bicycles were not permitted th«»re. Those in charge
of the polo contest sr.v that thoy have jurisdiction,
only as far as their playing; lines extend, and that
the park police are in supreme control outside of
those lines.

FAVORITISM SHOWN THOSE WHO HELPED
REFILL THE NATIONAL TREASURY.
Kingston, Jamaica. Jun<» 20.— A reliable corre
spondent at Panama. Republic of Colombia, writes,
under date of June it aa follows:
Ther*» is no new* from the interior of the repub
lic, but it is pretty well known that reticence on
the part of the authorities h*r«» Is a sure Indica
tion ■•' reverses for tht-m.
There arc three political pnrties in this country —
the Historicus ami tho Nationalists -both Con
servatives, the former taking 'no active part what
ever! and the Liberals, the latter now f!ght!n«T
against iruolpram c. against the existing fusion of
Church and State ar.rt for other republican prin
ciples.
In this department (Panama) the revolutionists
have it all their own way. The Government sent
forces — &"■) on the fln»t occasion last month — to Wipe*
our the rebels, but they returned without accom
plishing anything. Aeain a larger force was sent,
with two or thre-» Maxims, and commanded by
General Lozarfo. military chi»»f here, who boasted
that he wosiM brlnt; bark th<» head of the rebel
leader. A fierce Kittle ensued at a place called
Cham*, about June S and 9. in which the revolu
tionists wer" triumphant, killing about one hun
dred and woun<l!n:r about twice that number or
Covi>rnment troops. The latter returned with their
General, having run away from the enemy, fear
ing capture or annihilation. They offered rldle»»
loua excuses for so <lotng, among these being a da»
sire to avoid bloodshed.
The Government has decreed an Increase la Im
port duties of 15 per cent, making them X per
cent, but contrary To "he laws of equity ttvey mAkS
this Increase differential by not exacting it from
those who voluntarily lent money to the Govern
ment, «n.i forcing those who refused a loan to pay
the full duties. I understand that one foreign Una
has made a strong protest.
Th« Government has extended the time for Cv»
completion of th» canal to the year 1910. and re
ceived £20.fifl0 as ■ douceur for so doing. La.bor-.rs
are wanted for the Culebra and Empire sections,
but only $120 silver (46 cents gold! a day Is Of
fered, which sum. in view of the high rates pre
vailing, is not sufficient to feed a man. Business
Is paralyzed, and will altogether be ruined If the*
revolution la not soon ended.
Th«» above communication Indicates th« condW
tlon of affairs In one department of the republic,
but the revolutionists do not seem, to bo as suc
cessful In the Magdalena Department as the fol
lowing extracts from a letter sent by a man
residing In Cartagena will show:
As far as I can Judg». after my journey throng?}
the mountains in this department, the Liberal
party (revolutionists) are- in a bad shape. To*
Government troops simply chase them from place
to place. Th«» rebels are getting so full of despair
that they begin to commit atrocities. For instance,
on© Captain Burgos, while on the march, was
singled out by a man not a soldier and »ho;
through the leg. The scoundrel who did this -work:
was paid to do It by rich Liberals. Fortunately th»
life of Burgos has been saved.
I find Cartagena in Its usual quiet state, rumors
to the contrary notwithstanding. The Liberals
will never rule this country so long as Liberalism!
is what it is. The Conservatives have general*
■who would rather die than see their country deliv
ered over to a reign of terror. Should the Con
servative party find itself being 1 defeated, then th*
Historic party, which Is the genuine Conservatives
party, who till now have held aloof, will be called,
in to save the country- This party includes such.
men as Joaqutn Velez. now in Rome: MarceUianl
Velex, of Antoqula, and General Reyes.
The Royal Mail steamer Don. which arrived at
Kingston June 17, from Colon, did not talcs any
freight from Cartagena or Baxranqullla. although,
there was much material at these ports awaiting
shipment, including $300,000 in gold bars, in conse
quence. It Is claimed, of the excessive export duty
now being" Imposed by the Government.
Since the beginning of the revolution In Colom
bia It has- been almost tmoosstble to secure In
formation of a trustworthy nature. Most of th»
reports, telling of alleged victories of the rebel and
