May 21. -The trial of Shamrock II and Shamrock I to-day was in many respects the most puzzling that has yet taken place. Instead of throwing additional light upon the abilities cf the challenger, to day's race makes it more difficult than ever to estimate her speod. On the stretch from Cowea to the Silkiker they had an interesting struggle under full racing canvas. Officially the racing had not begun, but the skippers were apparently having a trial between themselves and snatching every ad vantage. Shamrock II was a good half mile to the leeward when they started, but in the five miles between the anchorage and the Sllkiker she closed up the whole of this big gap. Sham rock II had to be thrown In the wind and held aback, while Captain Wringe sailed Shamrock I boldly across the challenger's bows on the wrong tack. The keenness of the contest was shown by the fact that Captain Wringe tried this bluff, for had Captain Sycamore held on there would probably have been a disastrous collision. For the first live miles of the official course the new yacht did as well as the old one. but suddenly fell off. instead of gaining. The new yacht then lost on every tack. The explanation given by those on board is that the bobstay weakened and spilled the wind from the head- Sails and foresails, but it seemed strange that So imperceptible a difference in the trim of her sails made so much difference in her sailing. The old boat turned the weather mark nearly three minutes ahead and went off down the wind at a great pace. Then came another sur prise, for the challenger, which had never before been able to run her. closed up all the time, and when they finished at the Nab Lightship the times were: H.VS Phmnrnolc I f^?f:l2 Shamrock II «:U:W The opinion of mest of the experts who wit nessed the race was that, had it been desired that Shamrock II should win. she could easily have done so. ._ ¦' King Edward will be on board the challenger in to-morrow's trial. SALE OF DEFENDER COSTS ISELIN SI'IT. A BROKER WANTS COMMISSION. DECLAR ING THAT UK BROUGHT ABOUT THE YACHT'S PURCHASE. The suit brought by William Strieker, a metal jmker. against C Oliver Isetfa to recover $500 claimed by Strieker to be due him as commission for arranging the tale of the yacht Defender, was before Justice Clarke and a jury in the Supreme Court yesterday. Strieker pays that he asked Mr. Iselln over the telephone what be would take for the boat. Mr. Iselln said he would accept *10.« v) for her. According to Strieker he then conferred with M. Samuels & Son.=. the purchasers of the yacht. and an interview was had at the New- York Yacht Club with Mr Iselin and J. H. Young. He was to get a commission of 5 per cent, but Mr. Iselln refused to give him anything. Mr Iselin avers that he never employed or had any transactions whatsoever with Strieker, and that all his dealings were with the Samuels. BOSTON STIRRED UP. Apparently they are much stirred up in Boston over the attitude which Mr. Lawpon has told them the. New- York Yacht Club has taken reßardinß trial races between the Constitution and the Indepen dence. Mr. Lawson has all Boston at his back. Th" general Hub feeling la represented in the following; extract from "The Boston Herald": Nothing has occurred hereabouts in many rears In yachting circles which has caused so much com ment and spirited feeling as the barring out of the Independence. To a man. every one declares it an outrageous act, and Mr. Lawson is the martyr of the. hour. It is astonishing that some of the business men on the America's Cup committee should have been *o lacking in fairness and equity as to shut out a man who had gone to enormous expense in building a yacht to defend the Cup, especially after all prec edent was against it. It Is generally agreed that the proposition to Mr. Lawson is Intensely insulting and humiliating, and the committee ought to know that no self-respect ing gentleman would accept a straw title of the Independence and he held up to public view a* the fake owner on a straw bill of sale. Neither the Hon. Charles Francis Adams, 2d. nor C. H. W. Foster would entertain such an undignified proposi tion, and Mr. Lswsoa is Justified in his position. -¦With all the precedent in favor of allowing the? Independence in. the committee should have de cided as their predecessors have and sent out again the invitation to parties owning yachts to enter the trial races. What are these races for except to gather on the. racing grounds all yachts available and the selec tion of the fastest? They are held for no other purpose, and It has always been held that any ¦TV American could build and enter the trial races W) even if he was not a member of the New-York W Yacht Club. The present America's Cup committee goes back on every act of former committees, and is the weakest one the club has ever had to represent it. -.. NEIV-ROfUKLI.r; SPRING REGATTA.

Mis*, PRESBYTERIAN ACTIVITIES TRIBUTE TO DR. BABCOCK BY SPEAKER ON FLOOR OF GENERAL ASSEM BLY-LINES FROM HIS PEN BIBLE FOR FILIPINOS. [BT TELEGRAPH TO TUB TItIBCXE.] Philadelphia. May 21.— Almost greater in Impor tance to Presbyterians than the subject of creed cvSon is the recent death of Dr. Maltble D Bab cock! of New-York, If one may Judge from the ref erences to his life heard on the floor of the General Assembly and in conversation with commissioners. One of the best analyses of his character was made to-day, when the question of Christian education was under discussion. The Rev. Dr. Edward C. Ray, of Chicago, a warm friend of the Brick Church pastor, was speaking of the effect of collefies where the Bible is studied upon the lives of the men who have graduated from them. In his address occurred this reference to Dr. Babcock: God bless that Christian college in which the Bible was connected with the studies of every stu dent, which helped to shape the character of that honored and beloved brother, who was a David for sweet sons, a Paul for fiery zeal, an Apollos for eloquence, a Jonathan for friendship, and a John for heavenly .spirit, and whose sainted spirit went homo the other day from Naples. God bless the Christian college that had a part in giving: him to our Church. Dr. Babcock. who was a trustee of the United Society of Christian Endeavor, while on his way to the International Christian Endeavor Convention in London last summer wrote some verses entitled "School Days," which -were afterward printed by the Christian Endeavor Society and widely distrib uted. J. Willi., Baer has planned to give each of his fellow commissioners in the assembly a copy. The following are the first and mst verses: I/>rd. let me make this rule: 'f>> think of llf« >h school. And try my best To stand each tent. And do my work. And nothing shirk. Some day the bell will sound, Sk>m« day my heart will bound As with "a shout That school la out. And. lessona done, I homeward run. WORK OF BIBLE SOCIETY. The work of the American Bible Society and the causes of home missions, Christian education In colleges and academies and church erection were presented at the business sessions of the assembly to-day, and home missions occupied the evening, with a large meeting in the Academy of Music. In his address on the distribution of Bibles through out the world, the Rev. Dr. John Vex, of New- York, one of the secretaries of the American Bible Society, thanked the assembly for giving him fif teen minutes of its precious time, adding that he knew that this brief space did not give a fair lm picssion of the Interest which Presbyterians have in the Bible or In the Bible Society. Reference was made by the speaker to a young elder, an ofßcer in the United States Army, who took part In the capture of Manila and who had told the sec retary that there is a deep hunger for the Bible among the Filipinos. Dr. Fox continued: This is our own Presbyterian mission work that w-e are considering. for on .very mission Held not only in the Philippines, but everywhere else the Bible Society Is an essential part of our own work' I have in my hand the latest issue from our presses in New-York, the gospel of Matthew in Milu. The memory of Dr. Good, the first trans lator, la precious after heroic labors and a martyr death, a martyr to the deadly climate In which he labored above measure. His work as a translator was found to need revision We have just pub lished the revised edition of the Sulu Matthew and the translator, a member of this assembly. can tell you with what satisfaction it will he re ceived in the new born Sulu churches. The Syrian Mission of our own Presbyterian Church r«»r«ntly addressed a letter of thanks to the Bible Society "\\ f gratefully acknowledge." they say. "our in finite debt as a mission to the American Bible So ciety. This may be ink*-, as the sum and sub stance, the consensus of foreign mission testimony It cannot be regarded, therefore, as an outside benevolence: it lies «t the base of all our mis sionary operations. In China we have suffered in common with all other missionary boards, A do* n or fifteen of our heroic colporteurs have laid down their lives for the faith and In the service of the society. The scop* and magnitude of Bible work in China are little realized, and it Is wonderful that during this year of tumult the circulation has fallen off only sixty thousand copies. Dr. Fryklne N. White, the secretary of the Board of rhurch Erection, told of the splendid work which had been done by th» Presbyterian Church In assisting small congregations to erect houses of worship and parsonages throughout the land. So Important a church as the First rro«r-yt«»Tl.-ir. Church, of New-York, one which had given th* most perhaps In the history of the denomination was Itself obliged to receive aid in erecting its firm house of worship, the pastor making an appeal to friends In Glasgow, Scotland, for that purpose. Dr. White said that h«» was glad to be able to Fay to any critic who asked whether the influence of th» Church wan dying out. that from twelve to fifteen churches are dedicated every day in the w;-.\ and every week in the year. One of the most telling addresses heard In the assembly in years was delivered by Dr. Charles L. Thompson,' secretary of the Board of Home Mis sions. He has recently been in Porto Rico; with in a fear or two he. made a trip to Alaska, and his speech of fifty-live minutes covered every part of the home mission field from the Arctic Circle to the southern coast Cf Porto Rico. BIBLE A TEXTBOOK. The first cause presented this .fternoon before the assembly was that of the Board of Aid for Colleges and Academies. The offices of this board are in Chicago. In Its eighteen years It has aided seventy-eight Institutions, scattered over twenty nine States and Territories. Thirty-six schools have been founded and the burden of Indebtedness has been removed from twenty-six institutions. Its work is threefold, securing property, removing In debtedness and laying permanent foundations by endowment. In all the Institutions which the board aids the Bible is the chief textbook and the atmosphere Is Christian. The report added: Christ is held up as the centre and glory of educational as well as religious life, students are required to study the Bible systematically as" part of the curriculum necessary for graduation and receive the Inspiration and culture of pious teach ers and splendid influences. Addresses were made by the Rev. Dr. Edward C. Ray, of Chicago; Dr. Herri- k Johnson. Dr. W. C Roberts and Professor John Do Witt. The com mittee recommended tjiat the Church should con tribute $150,000 for the, coming year an the amount needed to support adequately the Institutions on its lint, and to make a moderate advance In new fields. In his address Dr. Ray said: Dr. John Adams was principal of Phillips Andover Academy. It was said that a certain boy had Im proper books. He was ordered to tie up in a bundle all books no' connected with his studies and the bundle was nit in a closet. The last day of the term it was brought out and opened. "We will now see ' Bald Dr. Adams, "the titles of these important volumes." The title of the llrsi book was the Holy i Bible. Dr. Adams thundered at him: "What! You out. Nt to have read a chapter in this every morning before breakfast." The hid replied: "You ordered me. sir. to bring every book not connected with my studies." The attitude of the churches, the public and the educational institutions of this land is commonly that of Dr. Adai,is— the student ought to read :i: i chapter In the Rible every morning before break fast. The practice of the churches, the public and educational institutions commonly results like Or Adams's- the student has no Bible. It is seldom connected with ills studios. It is a closed If not a closeted book. Every pastor has his fad outside of his regular work. Some like to fish and some to officiate on great occasions. Some, run bicycles, some General Assemblies and the Church. Some have Ideas of collecting old prints, others print collections of old Ideas. Some nake hymn books, some herbaria Some go to E.3rope. and others, not sluggards to the ant and heraldry. And so on. Now my hobby is always the teaching of the Holy Bible to the young. For yfara before this board was founded I ¦was In correspondence with every college and uni versity In the country about It. and visiting as I could, Institution 1 v.-here the Bible was taught to see how it *« done and to note results. So I apeak as an ;.mateur specialist. DR. JFACETTS SUCCESSOR ELECTED. / DR. HART TO FlUl. CHAIR OF PASTORAL. THE OLOGY IN GENERAL THEOLOGICAL SBMINARY.

MAY 22, 1901. REPORT OF GOVERNOR ALLEN HE SUGGESTS A SCHEME OF COLONIAL ADMINISTRATION FOR PORTO RICO. Washington, May 21. — Governor Charles H. Allen of Porto Rico has submitted to the Presi dent, through the State Department, his first annual report. The Governor expresses the opinion that a scheme of colonial administra tion, such as is followed In the Danish, French and English West Indies, might be safely Insti tuted, with variations dependent on the future policy of the home government. The Governor refers to the many suggestions offered that the form of territorial government adopted In the Tnited States be applied to Porto Rico, but points out that a standard form of such gov ernment, while useful in theVnlted States would not apply successfully to this Island posses sion. He calls attention to the fact that, while in such close proximity to the United States, Porto Rico has been a comparatively unknown island to Americans. "I feel as the result of a year's close study on the spot of all the conditions surrounding the problem," says Governor Allen, "that Congress went quite as far as It could safely venture in the form of government already existing on the island, and as the result of such experience and observation I fully believe, with good men de voted to the work, the Island will develop faster under such form, its people through experi ence and education will advance more rapidly in their knowledge of civic virtues, under the guid ance of present methods than could be gained in any other way." The Governor speaks plainly in presenting the reasons why this Island has been at a practical standstill for nearly four centuries, and says that In a climate where "a man can lie in a ham mock, pick a banana with one hand and dig a sweet potato with one foot, the Incentive to idleness Is easy to yield to, and brings Its inevitable consequences." In conclusion. Governor Allen urges the intro duction of fresh blood and Anglo-Saxon push and energy as the means of lifting the- little island out of its Lethargy, itnd by thrift and in dustry develop its riches to their fullest measure. REAR-ADMIRAL BCHLEY BERE. MAKES A HASTY VOYAGE TO THIS CITY, WHERE HIS SON IS ILL. Rear-Admiral W. S. Bchley arrived here yester day on the steamer Kaiser Wllhelrn der Qrosse much earlier than he had expected to reach this country. The Illness of his son. I>r. Schley, was the reason for his haste In coming after bains relieved from his command of the South Atlantic Squadron. The strain Which he had undergone exhibited Itself when he greeted friends on the pier, and the tears ¦•am.- to bis eyes. He left the pier as soon as he could and went to St. Luke's Hospital, where his son is lying. He remained until •; o'clock, when he went to the home of his son-in-law, R. M. Btuart-Wortley, No. 65 West Slxty-cigi-.th-st.. where he will remain for n time. Rear-Admiral Schley has been in South American waters in command of his squadron. He left here on the flagship Chicago In November, WB9. This command was probably his last active sea service as >. retires in a few months On Monday night, at a dinner given by Captain Bngelbart, the captain of the steamer. Rear- Admlra] Bchley attempted to make an address. He referred to the fad that that was probably the last voyage that he would make. As he spoke his tings overcame I Ira and' it was several seconds before he could proceed He said In part: This has been an anxious trip for me. I have haunted the bulletin board In the. main saloon at noon each day when the day's runs were, posted. Daily ! have figured out the distance which sep arated me from my country My anxiety grew as the distance became leas. Several times the admiral started to tike hi« seat, but each time there were calls for him to proceed. He continued: This Is a gathering of Germans and Americans where good reeling prevails And I believe that It la typical of the feeling which does and ever shall prevail between the two countries. & \n> To /Ml /' BEES MARRIED For r Tiurz BRIDEOROOM nF.FfSFS TO ADMIT OH Ppst P.k- PORTS AS TO THE CKRBMONICB.

TO THE TRIBUNE.] Buffalo, May 21.— 1f it had not been for yester day, to-day would have been counted a big day at the Pan-American Exposition. As It was, many affected to despise it. The attendance was, of course, only a small fraction of that of yesterday, but tho 'general appearance of the exposition to day, not compared with that of any previous day except yesterday, was as daylight to darkness. Even when the height of the season Is reached, a day like yesterday will be sure to be followed by a reaction and a falling off In the attendance. Allow for such a reaction as that to-day, consider also that the height of the season Is yet far off. and the crowds need seem in no way discouraging. The general congratulations on the result of dedi cation day which are exchanged by all who are interested in the fair are tempered only by thoughts, which will intrude, of what might have happened if only the weather had been as good In the morn- Ing as it was later in the day. In many cities with in easy reach of Buffalo there was rain In the early morning. The result may be guessed from a single case, that of Ottawa. There sixteen cars had been provided to bring excursionists, and only two were used. Therefore the directors of the exposition, who had hoped at least two hundred thousand people would pass their gates, had to be content with a few over one hundred thousand. But they accepted the situation philosophically and rejoiced that the weather played them no worse a trick. RESTAURANTS PARALYZED BY RUSH. Tho most Important incident of to-day was the opening of the Woman's Building. The house was full of visitors all day. and In the afternoon n reception was Riven to Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, which was attended by hundreds of women ami dozens of men. The reception was open to the public and no Invitations were Issued. The Mexi can military band gave a concert during the re ception. Work on the grounds and building?, ¦which was interrupted by the celebration and the crowds of yesterday, was resumed to-day and the usual good day's progress was made. There was a. kind Of spirit In it. too, which It did not have before. For some reason or other it did not have the unfinished appearance which It had even on Sunday night. Then It was a mighty scene of preparation: now it Is a fair in running order, and the fact that work la still going on does not alter this appearance. To begin the day, there was a va.-t amount of cleaning up to do after the passing over the grounds of the crowds of yesterday, it appeared that almost everybody who came brought a luncheon. It was handy for thmeslves that they did. for there were enough who did not to afflict the whole restaurant business of the exposition with paralysis. Strange tales are told of the ex periences of those who sought their food among those who advertised to provide it. The restaurant keepers themselves still speak In a dazed manner of the avalanche which came upon them. They have not yet recovered from Its affects. When they have had time to recuperate and profit by their ex perience they will arrange for the handling of big crowds, and probably such a thing will not happen again. There are plenty of restaurants on the grounds, but hitherto they had two waiters for each guest, and the sudden sight of twenty guests for each waiter confused them, A DIFFICULTY AT THE BULL FIGHT. On* of the wnrs»t effects ¦<( th« opening crowds arose from the silly mania for souvenirs. This led many visitors to nacre and carry off electric bulbs placed on the buildings for the illumination. A more worthless souvenir could scarcely he Imagined, but the fact remains that the bulbs dls api*>ared. When they are replied they will b* secured so that they can't be unscrewed, and the only way to remove thorn will be to explode them. When an electric bulb explodes the pieces .ire not worth saving; even for i souvenir hunter. The only persona about the grounds are the managers of those shOWS In the Midway which are not vet ready to open. The most of the ¦hows did a pretty fair business to-day, though of course i; was rot to be compared with that of yesterday. The nfternon bull fight In the Streets of Mexico whs well attended, and in connection with It a difficult; arose which caused th*» audl «nce much amusement. After the fight was over about half an hour was -pent In efforts to Induce 'he bull to leave the ring. In the usual bull fight In Mexico the bull is taken out dead, but when he was still alive the most experienced bull fighters found themselves at a loss how to get rid of him. No trip to the moon ha yet been made. The ¦hip a ia ready to sail, ! it she was delayed be cause >.me of the scenery along the route was not In cond condition. The first voyage will be made on Thursday, which the manager. Mr. Thompson, has named "Air Ship Day." ROOSEVELT AND IIANNA SPEAK. Buffalo, May 21.— The ffuenta of the exposition officials who remained In town to-day had a busy Mm* of ii. Vice-President Roosevelt and Senator Hanna were guests at a reception tendered them by th« Merchants' Exchange this afternoon. After the reception the guests weal to the Ellieott Club, where they had luncheon, la a brief address Vice- President Roosevelt said: The whole hemisphere i.- Indebted to the busi ness men of Buffalo for having created this splen did showing of architectural and lands beauty. Now It remains for the country to back you up by coming to see what you have done. No man or woman In this country who can come to this ex position should do himself or herself the gross Injustice to .stay away. Senator Hanna said in part: When business nun take an Interest In the political and public affairs the results are sure to be beneficial. it is an employer's duty to take active Interest In political and civil affairs. The weal or wot of this country depends on the men who conduct its commercial affairs. Speaking from my own experience, I would say It Is well worth the while of any business man to devote at least one-third of his time to such affairs. PA X- A M ERICA X A I VA LS.

SECRETS WOMEN KEEP IT THE PRICE OF SUFFERING. A woman usually passes through several stages on her way to that condition of serii-in validism which limits the activities of so many of her sex. For a time she suffers in silence and ignorance, not able to relate her su^nn..- t¦• their proper cause — womanly disease. When presently, she makes the discovery that her gen eral health is related to the local womanly health, she casts about for help. She dislikes to see the physician, she shrinks from talking to a stranger of the intimate matters of her woman's life, and when at last misery drives her to the doctor, her modesty is up in arms at the faintest hint of examination, ami she finds ex cuse to put the matter off and goes home to en dure another period of suffering. It would seem a strange thins If the sacrifice of modesty were necessary to the restoration of womanly health. Such a sacrifice 13 not neces sary. Women suffering from womanly ailments in almost all stages have found a perfect and permanent cure by the use of Dr. Plerce's Fa vorite Prescription. A FREE OFFER. To those women who suffer from disease in chronic form. Dr. Pierce offers the privilege of free consultation by letter, thus avoiding the> un pieasant questionings, indelicate examinations and obnoxious local treatments deemed neces sary by some local physicians. All correspond ence held as strictly private and sacredly confi dential. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo. N. Y. This offer of free consultation by letter =h«>utd not bc> confused with offers of "free medical ad irlce" which are made by persons without medi cal knowledge or experience, and who are barred, legally and professionally, from the prac tice of medicine. Though these people cannot practise medicine, because the law would be prempt to punish them, they can offer "free medical advice." Anybody can give advice with out incurring the penalty of the law. It Is well to remember that the ''medical" advice of an unqualified person, man or woman, hi worse than worthless; it i* absolutely dangerous. As chief consulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute. Buffalo, N. Y. Dr. Pierce, assisted by hi.-- staff of nearly a score of physicians, has. in little more than thirty years, treated and cured hundreds of thousands of "».!k md sick women. Write-, therefore, to Dr. Pierce, and get the opinion of a specialist upon your disease. High Grade 10 Cioan ACKER. MERRALL A.CONDIT AND METROPOLITAN- TOBACCO CO.. DISTniBITTOR3. BROBZCU K.

MAY BE Bid RAILROAD YARDS. REPORTED THAT THE ERIE AND CENTRAL, OK NEW-JERSEY WILL OCCUPY THE MEADOWS. It was said yesterday on what seemed to be good authority that a part of the Huckensack meadows, the purchase of which by Henry L. Sprague, of Stetson. Jennings »v Russell, w.13 announced on Monday, was to lit- used by the Erie railroad and the Central Ratlroad of New-Jersey for coal pockets, repair shops, freight yards, etc. There were all sorts 01 stories afloat yesterday "to account tor the purchase, m no definite Infor mation could be obtained. Mr. Morgan's name was connected more or laM with them all. It was said that there would be "the greatest locomotive and steel plant in ' ¦••• world." and one story was that a terminal tun lac Leyland Line of steamships recently bought by Mr. Morgan would be estab lished 011 the front of the meadows. The authority referred to said that no steel plant would be es tablished on the flats. "It Is too far from the mines." said he. Owing to the expense Involved in digging a suitable channel he said that It was not expected that the Leyland Line steamers would be docked there. The land, he said, would be used by the Central Railroad of New-Jersey and the Erie Railroad for various purposes. :¦¦•;• ¦.-.. S. R. Callaway said that the American Loco motive Works had no connection with the deal. AMI t:\ll\lln\ OniEF APPOINTED. Captain J.
