SPEEDS AWAY IX "AUTO." Wife Pursues Steel Official and Asks for His Arrest. A successful attempt on the part of Lawrence C. Phipps. an official of the Carnegie Steel Com pany, of Pittsburgh to get his two children, girls, who veto staying with their mother at the Hol land House, was Ihs cause early yesterday of exciting scenes at the Pennsylvania station at Jersey City and at the hotel from which the children were carried off in a red automobile. Lawrence C. Phlpps is a nephew of Henry W. Phlpps. the steel maa, and a son of a Methodist minister of Pittsburg. His wife, whom be married live years ago, was Miss Gen evleve W. Chandler. of Charteroi. Perm. At the time or th* formation of the Steel Trust, it Is said. Lawrence C. Phlpps received a large amount of steel stock. Mrs. Phlpps came here from Plttsburg five weeks ago as a result, it is alleged, of differences with her husband of some months' standing. With her were her two daughters and two maid;*. No legal steps had bass taken by either hus band i.r wife, but it is said that the father lad agreed voluntarily that the wife should have the custody of the children. Mrs. Phlpps weal to ih«» Holland House, where she was staying until yesterday. The husband apparently repented Of his agreement, for three ■peeks .■'.£" !.'* came hare from J'ittsburK and etn» . private detectives i;i efforts to get the children. Private detectives, with the co-opera tion of the two nurses who bad been won over to the father's Bide. t.K.k the children from their mother's *uite in the hotel, and. acootnpaniod.by the nwrsea and a mas fai' 1 . to have been Mr. I'hipps, dashed away in s rt<i automobile for the Jersey City ferry. Soon afterward Mrs. Phippa discovered her loss and laised an outcry 'n the hotel. She started in immediate pursuit. Passengers were pourinp from the Twenty-third-St. ferryboat to the trains, when Mrs. Phipps ran alonK the plat form screaming hysterically, "Stop them! For God's sake, stop their.'. They are stealing my children!" Phe w;is followed by two men. one in the prime of life and the other an elderly man. A crowd of curious passengers were soon in her v ake. She pursued her children ar.d husband, with whom there were two men and two young women, is they entered the Philadelphia ac commodation train. The excited woman entered the car, and two of the men of the party, said to be private de tectives. stepped into and blocked the aisle and prevented her from advancing. •'Give me back my children, you monster;" she shouted at her husband, who was holding them, while the two nurses were striving to pacify them as they began to cry. "Let me go to mamma 1 ." and endeavored to reach her. The mother ntruKß]<-d with the dete lives as she shouted. "Give me my children! Ton have stolen my children, you brut»:" A crowd surged at "Uf the car without, nnd th» passengers within clambered on the peats. Po llceman Boyle arrived, and. as he walked down the elide the mother frantically cried: "Arrest that man! He has stolen my children." One of the men who had accompanied tho woman Introduced himself to Boyle as J. C. Thompson, a lawyer of New-York and counsel for the woman. He asked that Mr. Phlpps be nrr- stei for abduction. When the policeman ac costed him. Mr. PhlpP" said: "This woman." pointing to Mr*. Phlpps, "is my wife, nnd these children. In care now of the two maids, are our children. Our home is in the West. My wife ran away several days ago, taing the children with )i<r. I followed her to New-York to recover the i hlldren, have recov ered them, and I . m taking them home, where they belong. n«t with hr , anil I have in no way -impress. -d th" law." "This is not a Western train; this is a local," remarked Boyle. "I understand that," was the reply. "I en deavored to avoid this -ej ; »-. We came over the Oortlandt-at. ferry. Intending to t.ike the trolley car to Newark and board th<» Plttnlmrg train at Newark, but found we could not get to Newark In time to m.ike the connection, and came over and took the local train to Newark, still hoping that we would be looked for on the express train here, but my wife came over early and saw us as w*> vere passing down the platform to the train. My action Is perfectly legal, oncer." The lawyer still Insisted that the father b* taken Into custody. "What for?" Inquired Boyle. "I have no ri^ht to arrest him without a warrant unless he is breaking the ;«eace. and he is certainly not doing that now." The lawyer declared that the. father was not the legal custodian of the children, bnit the obdurate officer Insisted that that was a question for the civil court, and said: "You are a lawyer and ought to know what to do." Th" elderly man and the lawyer turned to the mother and had a whispered conversation. She shook her head sadly and began to weep as they led her from the car. One of the chil dren exclaimed: "Don't go 'way, mamma." She turned as it' to go to them, tattered, began cry ing hysterically, and was assisted from the car by the lawyer and the elderly man, who was said to be her father. A messace w«j received by the jersey city poHee about 7 a, m.. asking them to apprehend for abduction a man in fashionable attire with two children. It WU learr.e.J that the fnth»»r nnd his party continued on the train to Philadelphia, there purchased tickets for Pittsburg and boarded the fast mall train which left Philadelphia at la X! o'clock. Later In the day, according; to Assistant Dis trict Attorney Johnstone. J. Campbell Thomp son visited him. and was closeted with him for some time. Mr. Johnstone would not admit that .Mr. Thomrsor/s visit was connected with the Phipps case. "I have known Mr. Thompson for several years." ho said, "and his visit mr.y have- been purely social." Last night Mrs. Ph'pps waa at the Hotel Netherland, where the clerk aald that she was registered aa Mrs. Lawrence C. Phlpps, of Pitts burg. Mr. Thompson was also at the Nether land. "Is your client Mrs. Phlpps. of Pittsburgh?" he was asked. "I must refuse to answer that question." he replied. "I will only say that I waa not In Jer sey City yesterday, and have not b*en there for several day.--." he added. Mr. Thompson refused to answer a question as to whether his clerk or representative was '.he man who accompanied Mrs. Phlpps at tho Pennsylvania station, and also declined to make any Btatesnent as to whether his client intend* to take legal steps for the recovery of her chil dren. The management of the Holland House pro f«-K.x<-<l last night to l>e In complete ignorance Of the alfalr :it-d denied that Mrs. Phlpps had l^een staying at the hotel. He intimated that the trouble occurred at the Netherland. BUsTim im< >W N AND TIOE GONE TO EUROPE.

London. June :*,.— Walter J« Travis, three times holder of the American amateur golf champion ship, won the title of amateur champion of Great Britain on the links at Sandwich to-day by defeating K. D. Hlackwell. of the Royal and Ancient Club, four up and three to play. Travis is now entered for the open championship of Great Britain, to be played on Juno 7 and 8. He will sail for home on June l.">. The sky was overcast, with occasional flurries of rain, while a stiff, raw wind from the north east rendered it difficult for the two men to dis play their best form. The weather, however, appeared to have little effect on Travis, who played with the same coolness and accuracy that had characterized his game throughout the tournament. His putting and approach work were particularly notable. The gallery numbered about five hundred. Although their sympathies were practically unanimously with Black well, they could not re frain from applause at Travis's brilliant game, .■nd the American's superiority over the Scotch man was admitted, coupled with expressions of regret that one of the older and more representa tive r.iii.-o golfers was not pitted against the visitor in the final. About .1 score of Americans followed the game. Including the competitors In th* earlier stages of the championship and Simeon Ford, of New- York. TRAVIS WINS FIRST HOUS.

The next two were halved, and Blackwell ought t.. have reduced M-i deficit t<- one .i! the thirteenth. His putting, however, was bad, and he lost the hole. There after he never looked Uk" drawing level, and Travis finished the first round with 4 up. His score by strokes was H>, Blackwel] taking 83. Travis throughout gave the same remarkable display of putting which baa gained him here the. reputation of being the •■ . si exponent In the World of the short game.

Blackwell played his second Into the fame bunker and took two to recover, but he won the hole in «i to 7 Travis won the next, but lost the third, where he failed at a .".-yard put for a half in :; The American, however, was again 4 up at the fourth, where Blackwell was weak on the green Two HtriiKlit shots and a 10-yard put gave Travis a .1 at the fifth, where ha stood "> up.

CLIMAX OF METEORIC CAREER Trarls*s performance In winning the golf Championship of Great Britain Is the climax •' a rather meteoric career In the annals of ama teur golf no tble side of the water. Taking up the clubs for the first time In the summer of ISM. he at once became an enthusiast. His progress has been marked by more cups and medals than that of any other American player He Is the present amateur champion of the United States, a title which he first won In 1900, end has held ever since, except In 1902, when Louis N. James, of Chicago, was the champion, Travis having been put out In the third round by E. M. ByenL Travis began his career at the Oakland Coif Club, of Bayatd*. Long Island, whose course was laid out in the fall of l^'.H). For the last three years, however, be has lived at Garden City, and owed allegiance to the Garden City links. His record for the first season's play In 11-!*?1 1 -!*? embrace) two victories, of low score honors In Qualifying rounds of open tournaments, and one tie for the Basse distinction; he twice won gross and net honors at handicaps, and had the beet gross score in three other handicaps, and he won four cups at match play. This nummary Indicates the gradually increasing skill with which he mastered the game at the outset. Having great endurance and being al ways in training, Travis has been since 1897 practically invincible on the links of this coun try. In 1900 he was rated In the Metropolitan Golf Association's handicap list at three strokes, Findlay S. Douglas being then the scratch man. In the Metropolitan championship of lUU>> Travis was put out by 11. M. Harrlman. the subsequent winner. From that time until now he has been rated as a scratch man, first with Doug-las and later alone, until now Douglas and several others are rated at three strokes and Travis stands alone as the scratch man. FIRST AMERICAN TO WIN IT. Travis Is the first American who has ever won the English golf championship, for, though born In Australia, he is a naturalized American citi zen.

Throng of Curious Ugly After Then Think Woman Is to Appear. Police reserves from the West Forty-seventh and West Sixty-eighth-st. stations were sum moned by a riot call last evening to quell a dis turbance by a thousand or more curious persons who wen massed in front of the horn? of Mrs. Hannah Elia«. at No. 'j;:r. Central Park W<»st. The disturbance was started by two young mulattos, who, after pushing through the crowd, went to • the basement door and asked loudly enough to be heard by those on the sidewalk if "Clarisse" was in. This aroused the crowd, which had been awaiting: something exciting. Cries of "They've got her!" "She's going '* be arrested!" and so forth, as se, and the crowd pushed forward to see all that might happen. Two mounted park policemen and two or three patrolmen had been having their hands full since dark trying to make the crowd move on and keep the sidewalks clear, and when this trouble came they were powerless. One of them telephoned to his station, and In a short time the reserves appeared, but before they came the stoop of the house was literally stormed. It was an uglj crowd, and it refused to be beaten back by the frail force of police. When more reserves came the throng was loath to leave the place, and it was half an hour be fore the street was again clear. When the crowd poured fa seated them, the two mulatto youths who had Started the trou ble, gave up their attempts to :ir.d "Clarisae" and disappeared as Quickly as they could. They got no answer at the basement door. The crowd in front of the Ellas house last night was greats* than at any time since the revelations concerning her and John R. Platt came out. This was partly due to the pleasant weather. The Central Park wall, affording com fortable i>eats, was lined for several blocks either way. After the police drove the crowd away, few returned, htft r»y It o\!ock the street was net, JEROME IX ELI AS CASE. Mai/ Go to Grand Jury — Crouds Still Watch House. If the Si yet! of John R.

FIGIITIXG AT FORTRESS. Borne Hears of Outer W< <rk ? Taken — Guns Command Defences. Dispatches from Tokio to Rosa* icported the fall of Port Arthur's outer line of fcetin eations after a weak resistance, the pi^hn of heavy artillery on heights rwmnsniiing the town and an attempted sortie of the war ships, which wrn* driven back by the Jap anese fleet. The news lacked confirmation from other sources. Russian officials scout the reports that a large force was moving south to relieve Port Arthur, saving that the Emperor has not lost confidence in Genera) Kuropatkin, and has made no attempt to interfere in the plsa) of campai;*n. General Stotssrl's report of the nghtim at Nan-Shan adds little to the Japanese ac counts of the fighting. It puts the Russian - - at 813 killed and wounded, and says th.it the Japanese turned the position so rnnidly that the mines could not be use i lisp.itch from TwUs fs)sas.

Chinese Junks which have reached this port from the Cha River, west of Taku-Shan. report that the Japanese have captured two Russian officers and forty soldiers disguised as Japanese. Llao-Ynng, June 3.— There are persistent rumors that another great battle Is In progress near Port Arthur. Continuous cannonading has been heard from the south. An addition;.! force of fifteen thousand Japan ese la reported t<? have landed at Taku-9ha.n. Since practically all news from Tokio In official and must pass a rigid censorship, the fa:lure of other news associations sa obtain conrtrmatl of the dispatch from the Japanese capital to Rom.; should cause the report to be accepted with re serve.

Lieutenant n<*ner»l Zllinsky. chief of stiff to General Kur>pnticirt. transmits la the Minister of War. as ■ r date of June 2. a report of General StoeMMl. dated Port Arthur. May 2S. as follows: After a fierce battle lasting two days. I or dered our losirions at Kin-»'hov- to he evacuated in the evening, for we had opposed to us at least three divisions with 120 guns. The enemy's fire, particularly that from four gunboats and six torpedo boats, completely an nihilated our batteries mounted at Kin-Chow. The ."th Regiment, which was posted on this sjior. stood Ms ground heroically. The fire of this regiment. ;ta well as that of our batteries and Iks gwnbont Bohr, off Khounoueza. inflicted enormous losses on the Japanese. Our leases amounted to thirty officers and SOO men. killed or wounded. We Mew up or dam aged .II >ur guns which the Japanese had not put out of '-tlon. It wou'.l have be*-n inexpedient, certainly, to feeing up s>ie;j:.> artillery during the fierce fight- Inp. The battle of May ■_••"> began at 5 a. m.. and lasted until 8 ■,■ ny, when I ordered the position evacuated gradually. The espsMsafl of s number of our mines and fbogadsl was rendered impossible because tha Japanese turned our position immediately. The Japanese advanced through water up to their waists under the protection of their ships. The spirit of our troops is excellent. The method of the transmission of General Bsasssel'9 report is not disclosed, but it Is pre sumed it was taken by a Chinese junk to New- Chv.ang. Evidently It was written under stress. as it was hastily pencilled. General Stoe3sel refers in terms of the warm est praise to the skill and courage displayed by General Fock. whom he recommends tor the St. George's Cross. He does not mention that Fork was wounded, from which the general staff assumes that the report to this effect vu untrue. As the general especially praises a regiment which was not In General Fock's division. th« general staff concludes that five regiments, or about 12.000 men. were engaged on the Rus aian side.
