THE PASSING THRONG.
"The invasion of America/; capital, entcrprls©
and business energy is astonishing not only Eng

British Columbia, where he is interested In the
lumber business, "In Vancouver," he continued,
"th-j Brtdl eubje-cts •!• much stirred up over
the business acumen and ability of the citirens of
the United States. «M of the chief industries of
British Columbia is salmon packing, and the pack
ers have recently found it necessary to form
themselves li ••• a protective association to flgrht
tho packers of Oregon and Washington. The capi
tal employed in this industry In British Columbia
Js large, and the iiiiwsi 1 of people en^aßed dur-
UK the season exceeds «ifteen thousand. There are
about sev<nty-nve canneries, and during the sea
son of m 3 there s/as paid to fishermen "long *•
Fraser Klver alone about IU».«Si for fish <?"».•
The Dominion Government receives about sW,wmj
from this Industry each year. The canners now
. ant a risherv commission, like the Lnlted States
hup. to conserve the :j- " supply. They want the
price of a license to fish reduced and a tax as
¦ nssnii on each case of salmon packed in the dis
trict, the money so derived to >..• used to conserve
the fishing Interest. The men interested in the in
dustry my that if salmon fishing continue? as
at present and no greater provision is made for
the artificial propagation of the fish, the supply
r-i the pvi -. - iv.v, and the north coast of \\ ash-
Ington u'lll sooa be exhausted."

EXJOY THEIR terriay. Mr. Phelps Is an Bag-
MONEY. lishman. and is here representing
English capitalists who are inter
ested in Montana copper mines. Mr. Phelps has
epent many years In this country, and knows the
mining districts thoroughly. "You think New-York
Is rich and prodipal," he continued, "but for wan
ton, dissolute, epc-ndthrift ways commend me to
the West. You think your cafes and bars along
Broadway and adjacent thoroughfares are por
peous. The bars ar.d cafes of Montana, the Da
kotas and Colorado re much more brill! in
out plass. glitter and polish than are the bars of
this city. The East has many ways at enjoying
Itself that arc dented x» the WVst. When a man
gets rich In the WVstcrn country his first idea is
to return to the pleasures that appealed to him
wh.-i, he was poor. Why, one of the richest mining
men in the West teflai tr> hnv»> no knowledge of
how to enjoy himself .-isido from get time drunk.
This man is of robust physique, great ability and
shrewdness. Hi mr-dc a strike and became enor
mously wealthy When he wants to enjoy hlm
pelf now he f<-*.s blind drunk. He insists upon
every one getting drunk with him. When it Is
over" he attends strictly to business again.
There is oie thinp— these men who iret rich in
¦the West are Intensely and locally patriotic. They
think there is no place like their own terri
tory, nnd apltie from men like Senator Clark or
Marcus I~>nly. who broadened out. they stick to

SECRETARY OF W. & J. BLOAXE THINKS
SUCH A BODY COULD BEST HANDLE
George McNfir. secretary of W. & J. Sloane. in
testifying before the sub-commlti nf the Indus
trial Commission yesterday, said that in 1«7.1 00
per cent of all the carpets used in this country
We;-.- imported, while now C<o per cent were manu
factured here. The value of the carpets manu
factured here annually exceeded •"¦•¦¦ but a
comparatively small export business was done, as
the Arr.c-rio;:n manufacturers were unable to com
pete with the -• peal makers, who could obtain
raw materials duty fre?. Mr McN^lr suggest.- 3
that the duty on wool to be used in the manufact
ure of carpets be made ad valorem if It could not
be abolished altogether. The witness discussed the
tariff in Oriental nips. The price of the Imported
Roods, he said, was so much higher than the do
mes=tl; rups that the tariff did not protect the
trade In any 'way. He held that BO duty was
necessary .from the point of view of the manu
facturer. He thought a permanent commission on
tariff revision would mwt the difficulty that had
been experienced in the past in deciding tariff
Ht Lionel J. Salomon, treasurer and chief owner of
Bfthe American Hatrnn and Reed Manufacturing
W Coir.: of ProokJyn, explained the methods of
¦working in reed and rattan, and said that the busi
ness was not profitable to the American manu
facturers because of the ]ov.- tnriff. !J.. said he
could rtmovp his factory to •; rsoany. where labor
m ¦ much cheaper, and serve only his American
customers, nnd. despite the 10 per cent tariff, do as
b?g a bu;:ine«s as he was now doing; and save from
$12,000 to SIS.4GO a year In rent alone.
Colonol Wniirtm Harbour, president of thf '.::.•
Thread Company, told of the formation of his com
pany to distribuie the produce of four thread mills.
Each rf then mills, he said, was an independent
organization. No domestic thread was exported.
but nine-tenth? of the amount used in the United
States was of domestic manufacture. Colonel Bar
bour said that the operatives In his mini fn Pnter
fon wen* three limes ns well off as those in his
Bsjtii in GlaKgnwnnd Belfast.
The commission will not meet again In this city.
After a visit to the Cheney Si'.k Mills, in South
Manchester. Conn., it will return to Washington,
where it will hoi a session on Monday morning
with the full commission.

BAN A STAR LIKELY TO BE A FAVORITE
IN THE BROOKLYN HANDICAP.
Thirteen hordes wire named last night to face the
start. to-day at Gravosend for the Brooklyn
Handicap, long nmo:iK the most popular of the
greal races for thoroughbred racehorses, three
year-olds or upward. While neither Ethelbert nor
Kinley Mack will start, the racers named are
amonjr the very best in training, and should furnish
such a race as •rill amply repay the thousands
who will jorney to Gravesend for the first day
of the spring meeting of the Brooklyn Jockey
The list of starters is headed by Clarence H.
Ifackay's splendid horse i:.ii:;i.-iar. who won the
Metropolitan on May 4 and the Brooklyn Handicap
of lv<i. If he puts the big race to his credit" again
to-day he will be the first horse to win it twice,
and his fame will lie made by bo much the greater.
The Farandole horse will carry the top weight,
conceding from nine to thirty-five pounds to his
field, but he is fit, and. his friends believe he can
accomplish the feat. Banastar will probably go to
the post at odds- on. in strong contrast to the 13
to 1 offered against him before the Metropolitan.
William C. Whitney's Star Urißht is down to bo,
but unless he Improves vastly over his last races
!"'! "' can scarcely pet into the money. Raffaello, M.
Murphy's good weight carrier, will have many,' fol
lowers. an.l if the track Is heavy his chances will
be more than good, for he revels In mud. Bana
star Is conceding him eleven pounds, which are a
Kood many to a horse of Raffaello's class. Raf
faello. Sidney Lucas, Watercure, King Bramble and
All Gold all ran in the Metropolitan. Banastar
conceded weight to all of them and beat them
King Bramble has not improved, but Sidney Lucas
and Watereure are certainly in better shape, and
Sidney Lucas ran a good race and finished fourth'
in the Metropolitan. Conroy and Blues, the only
three-year-olds entered, are both to carry 9S
pounds. Conn ;.-.¦.¦:.. a bad Im ting on
Thursday over a distance, and stamped himself as
a high class colt. He will take a lot of. beating to
day. Alsike ran a good second to First Whip at
Morris Park on Tuesday In a long distance affair,
leaving .Star Bright far in the ruck, but will hardly
class with his field, even at the weights. Prince
McClurg and Standing have not raced this year,
and are probably not In shape for a bruising gallop.
Still, James Howe has proved with Command that
it Is possible to send a colt to the. post for his first
race of the rear lit to tun for a man's life. It is
not. however, an easy thing to do. Herbert has
often proved his class. H. carries a very light Im
post. M pounds, to-morrow, and In discussing the
candidate:- It is Impossible to overlook him. Ho
beat Decanter and others over the Withers Mile at
Morris Park, getting off last and running through
the entire field in 1.412-5. three-fifths of a second
faster than Banastar's Metropolitan mile, and he
carried seven pounds more th:»n he will take up to
flay. Watercure just managed to beat him iater
over the same distance, but Herbert conceded him
ten pounds, and would have won had he been well
ridden. To-day Watercure carries more weight
The Expectation Stakes, of $5,000, will be run Just
before the Brooklyn, and will attract, among other
good two-year-olds. The Hoyden, Whiskey King,
Firing Line, Goldsmith, of whom great things are
expected; Highflyer, as yet untried; Goldflnder and
Sir Tom Tiddler.
While many race-got will turn with regret from
the beauty of Morris I'ark they are bound to sro:
good racing at the home of the Brooklyn Jockey
Club, and they will no longer have to suffer the
barbarous Journey over the Second-aye. elevated
road. The New-York, New-Haven and Hartford
Railroad handled Its end of the Morris Park Jour
ney well, but the elevated road management ap
j" •-¦ d studiously to neglect the comfort and con
venience nf its patrons. Gravepr-nd is comparative
ly accessible. The Brooklyn Rapid Transit Com
pany runs many express trains to the track. No
body ever heard of an express train to the races
on the Manhattan elevated road.

GAMES AT BERKELEY OVAL.
DUFFY, OF GEORGETOWN, EQUALS THE
100- YARD COLLEGE RECORD
OF 94 5 SECONDS.
In the- preliminaries of the twenty-sixth annual
Intercollegiate track and field championships, which
were contested at Berkeley Oval yesterday after
noon, the wearers of the crimson performed so
well that the sharps predicted a victory for Har
vard in the finals this afternoon. Harvard men
qualified in nearly every event, while the per
formance of several of Yale's representatives was
distinctly below expectation. Yale's chances were
seriously affected by the absence of Boardman. who
was expected to win the quarter-mile, and Captain
Flncke, both of whom were Incapacitated by in
juries. Sprakes, too. who would probably have
taken first in the high Jump, was withdrawn by
Yale because his eligibility had been questioned.
Cornell, on the contrary, made an unexpectedly
strong showing, as also did the representatives of
the University of Michigan, who qualified in sev
As it was recognized that the day would be de
voted merely to weeding out the Inferior per
formers, the attendance was very small, and there
was nothing approaching enthusiasm over any of
the contests. There was, with one exception, only
one performance above the ordinary. That excep
tion appeared in the person of Arthur Duffy, of
I Georgetown, who won his trial heat in the 100-yard
sprint in 4-."> seconds, thus equalling the collegiate
record be Id by Bernard J. Wefers, of the same in
stitution. Three watches caught' the time identi
cally, i nd as Duffy has been timed In 9 4-5 seconds.
before the record will doubtless stand; The run
ner was appreciably aided, however, by a strong
breeze, which wafted the sprinters down the
straightaway. The Georgetown runner made a
show of his field, winning by three yards. He
should win the event to-morrow, but F. M. Sears,
of Cornell, who ran very impressively yesterday,
and C. Dupee, Yale's football player, may be
counted on to make him run.
H. W. Hayes, a Michigan man. and H. E. Hast
ings, of Cornell, won the two trial heats of the
half-mile run, both heats- being run in slow time.
Perry, of Princeton, qualified without trying" to do
more and should win to-day. In both high and
low hurdles Yale had a piece of luck, for Potter,
i»f Williams, who appeared to have both events
at his mercy, did not appear to qualify, and Clapp
and Thomas, both of Yale, should take tha ma
jority of the points over the fences. Bach of them
won heats yesterday, Clapp taking the 120-yard
hurdle In the good time of 15 4-5 seconds. Fish
le'.gh, of Michigan, captured his heat, too. while
two Harvard men got seconds. Rust, of Harvard,
ran the fastest quarter-mile, doing the trick In
&• 1-5 seconds, with Nufer, another Michigan ;nan.
just i). hinu him. A surprise awaited Harvard when
Hall.w ell failed to qualify in She 220-yard hurdle,
finishing behind both Thomas, of Yale, and Goc-d
man, of Pennsylvania. Dupee, of Tale, beat Ug.it
her. Harvard's fast 230-yard sprinter, so badly that
the latter quit trying before 150 yards had been
covered, but two other Harvard men, Haigh and
Yule scored heavily In the shot-put, Sheldon and
Keck. who holds the Intercollegiate record, heading
the field, but Bills and Robinson, both of Harvard,
qualified, as did Gill, another Yale candidate. No
other contestants figured. Where Tale fell down
was in the hummer throw. Brown >vas the only
candidate from New-Haven to qualify. Dc Witt.
of Princeton, led the Held with a throw o: .4.' feet
i\i Inches, with Boat, of Harvard, second. Roach
and Kills, of Harvard, and Jones, ot New- York
I Diversity, each • i red 5 feel ;t Inches In the high
Jump, :ani urtlss, «•:' Princeton, and Lowe, of Syra
cuse, also qualified at o feet CV* Inches, No Vale
or Pennsylvania candidate proved dangerous.
Prinsteln, of Syracuse, who was expected to do
wonders In the biuad Jump, hud an oft day. anil
failed to clear 21 feet 1 l-:> Inches. Kennedy, of
Columbia, led the field at 21 feel 6 3-5 Inches. Tale
missed Spraker again m this event, but Ristine
qualified for Harvard. The pole vault resulted cu
riously. Dvorak, of Michigan; Coleman, of Prince
ton, and Hood, of v.i • , each cleared ID feet i
Inches, and Fishlelgh, of Michigan; Cray, of Penn
sylvania; Gardner, of Syracuse, and Moore, of
Princeton, all failed after 10 feet 3 inches had bef-n
reached. But on the Jump-off both Fishlelgh and
Moore cleared the bar ut 10 feet 9 Inches, thus
After die track .and field preliminaries had been
fltilshrd the trial heats of thft Intercollegiate Bi
cycle Knclng Association were run off. These races
nrn entirely distinct from tin- track and field games,
and. ttnlr result* will not affect the relative stand
ing nf iho colleges represented. They have never
before, been h»ld at the name place and time as the
I'm-M and truck frames, and never should be n»ra!n.
The programme is already too prolix, and the addi
tion of the Mcyoli" races drags the day's sport out
to an Interminable length. The time In all the
wheel races wn« very slow, save In one beat of the
quarter-mile, which Butts, <>f Tale, did In 3i :-:>
seconds, breaking th<» collegiate record of 10 i-si-5i -5
seconds, held by Rlpley, of Princeton. There was
a t'itd sptU In the lirst heat of the ••;:•• mile bicycle
race. One of the riders fell at the far turn, and
three <il hers crashed headlong Into him. Rae, •>?
Columbia, flew over the edge of the track and dis
appeared from view. His head and face were
badly cut and his wheel was converted Into junk,
but the rider sustained no serious Injury. The long
distance "races"' loped Into loafing matches.
A time limit should be put on them In future. As
now run they are not long distance races at all.
Everybody loafs until the last lap. and then sprints
for the finish. Witness th« miles made yesterday
In 2::;". ¦_• -is 1-5 and bo on. Yale hat a strong bi
cycle team, and should win In that department to

The New-York players took the Cincinnati team
into camp again yesterday at the Polo Grounds,
and defeated them by the score of 1 to 0. There
were about ten thousand spectators present when
Mathewson went into tho box to do the pitching
for the home team. Mathewson proved to be as
much of a stumbling block for the Cincinnati play
ers as for the other teams he has pitched against
this season. He has made a record for the season
as it is.' having been eight times In the box, and
still being undefeated. He held the visitors down
to two hits, and not a Cincinnati player reached
third base In the nine innings. Mathewson had
lots of speed, and added three strike outs to his
record. Phillips, who occupied the box for the
visitors, was in good form after tho first inning,
and did not let a man get across the plats after
that. In the first Inning he was a bit wild, and
forced In the only run that the home team was
credited with. The inning opened by Van Haltren'a
going out. Belbaoh hit the first ball pitched for a
single, and Strang also made a single. Then Hick
man fouled out to Irwln. and still the home team
had a man on first base and one on second.
At this stage of the game Phillips sot wild and
allowed Davis his base on balls, filling the corners.
Gansel was then hit by Phillips, and that forced
Selbach home. The Inning ended by Phillips strik
ing out Smith when the bases were full. Phillips
did good irk for the remainder of the game, and
only allowed his rivals eight safe hits, while he
struck out five men.
Both pitchers were well supported. ¦fathewson
was steady nil through the game, and he was
loudly cheered for his work at the close.
'!!>• re were many oldtime faces at the game
which have not been there In years. They of
course, expected to see the York's former
favorite. Ku.-i.-. pitch against his late comrades,
but he did not appear In the box. Many of them
thought that Itusle and Mathewson would be
great rivals to put against each other but PhiUirw's
work was as good as any at the Polo Grounds this
season. Tho score:

TRAVIS BEATEN BY SEELEY IN ("HAM
¦¦ PIONSHIP SEMI-FINALS TO MEET .
! DOUGLAS TODAY. 1
After a series of almost unbroken victories tm*
bracing the championship of the United Stales and
tho local championship of the metropolitan dis
trict. Walter J. Travis was beaten at Apawamlat
yesterday by C. 11. Seeley, of the Wee Burn Golf
Club. It was a spectacular overthrow. The two.
were all even at the sixteenth green. Travis got
the seventeenth and Seeley the eighteenth, leaving;
the match a tie. On the deciding hole, about which,
were grouped over a thousand onlookers, Seeley
won by a single put. The victory places nisi
against Flndlay S. Douglas in to-day's finals.
As a pupil of George Strath. Seeley first came
Into prominence two years a:?o, when he won tho
Intercollegiate championship. Last year his princi
pal achievement was the winning of the KnollwooJ >
tournament, and on the opening clay of the pres
ent tournament he was second to Hamilton. whose*
total of 174 led he field. His success yesterday
was the climax of a week of consistently able
play. "The best man won." was Travis' sports
manlike comment after It was over. "He beat me
because he played the stronger game."
As the younger of the two. Basil y had the sym
pathies of the feminine portion of the gallery, who
applauded his good strokes with an enthusiasm
that left no doubt as to which side they favored-
Many congratulating hands were extended as he
left the last green, and the Sjnisuisl mt them all
was old George Strath, who had. followed has
former pupil from the start.
Incidentally, the result will detract from the
popular interest in to-day's finals, for it has been
predicted throughout the week that Travis and
Douglas would be the competitors for the cup. and
the old scores to be settled by such a meeting have
been looked forward to with anticipation by golfers
everywhere. In Set-ley, however. Douglas will find
a worthy opponent, although the betting last even
inK made Douglas the favorite by odds of a to 3.
Incidentally, too, the result casts further reflec
tion on the work of tho official handtcapper. for
Seeley !k given an allowance of five strokes. Travis
Is placed at scratch, an.l Douglas, who will prob
ably win the cup. is given one stroke.
But upsets in golf are frequent, and yesterday's
outcome has set handicappers all awry. This time.
however, Travis deserved to lose. Seeley outdrove
, him on every tee up to the turn, and unquestion
ably played the better game throughout.
He got the first hole at 5 to f, and as Travis
sliced his brass*? on the second, landing In the
rough. Seeley got that also. The third was halved
in 5. and then Travis won his first hole of the
match— the 322 yard fourth, known a3 "the knoll."
The fifth was halved in a perfect 3. the sixth went
to the Wee Burn man at 4 to 5. and as Travis
sliced his drive, pulled his third and fiddled away
three strokes on the green, it was an easy matter
for Seeley to get the next also.
Travis missed a put for the eighth, and it was
halved in 4. Facing the ninth. Seeley sliced hi 3
drive under the stone wall and lost. 7 to 8, leaving
him 2 up. The tenth was full of errors on both
sides. Seeley opening with a half-topped drive and
sclaffing his second into a patch of ground under
repair from which he was allowed to drop sndi
without penalty. He then drove his third under
the wall at the top ©1 the hill. Travis meanwhile
had overrun his approach, was forced to play back,
and as both rimmed the cup for 5 the hole was
halve In 6.
In going to the eleventh Seeley drove to the erlpr*
of the brook, and Travis got nto the water. This
, "st him a stroke, but as Seeley made the same
' error at the next stream the hole was halved in a
! generous 6. The next two were halved In 4 each.
On the 545-yard fourteenth hole Seeley drove his
Iron into the brook, and Travis won, I to 7, leav
, ing him ! down On the next 9»elsy missed h?s
drive, but recovered nicely, and halved in 3.
Travis got the next, as B -ley found the bunker
| on his .'.rive, an ! this left the match all even. The
seventeenth was another poor one for the Wee
I'i.rn man. Starting oat he pulled into the long
grass, and after playing out nicely with a bras
sey he skied his third to the top if the sand heap,
and finally lost by I to 7. Travis was now 1 up.
with every prospect of victory. On the home hole.
however, he was short on his second, short again
on his approach put. and. failing fo bring off a
10-foot put for a half, the hole went to Seeley at
4 to 5. This tied the match. The deciding hr>
was stayed amid almost breathless Interest Botli
got away screaming drives, but Seeley playeii hi'
second up th* hillside among the rooks and lone
grass. Trawls was short on his second, topped his
* third and then overran the hole. Seeley mran
while had i«sn within three feet of the cup. an.l
