Interest Shown in Cross-Country
Run — Next Yachting Season.
That the Eagle Bock automobile hill climbing
contest has become oni of the leading features in
motor meetings was clearly shown at the fourth
annual competition held un.ier the auspices of the
Automobile Club of New-Jersey on Thanksgiving
Day. Nearly every one of the fifty-four cars that
were entered in the various contests was on hand,
and ihero were good excuses for those that did not
appear. More than ten thousand spectators lined
the mile course and had the satisfaction of seeing
performances that Were well worth going miles to
bee.
The. fast time, that was made, compared with that
of last year, Is told by Benin's new record, He
went up the hill In 1:30, beating the former record of
William K. Vanderbilt. Jr., made last year, by six
teen and three-quarter seconds. Vanderbllt made
the second best time, 1:20 3-5. He drove his new W
horsepower Mercedes car against Benin's 60-horse
power Renault. Vanderbili found it necessary to
chut off some of his )«>w. r to make the few ugly
turns In the course. while Bernin went up the hill
in his lower power car at full speed, and in this
way saved time. Both men drove their machines in
masterly style. In all but one of the dozen classes
for steam, electric and gasolene machines new rec
ords were made.
"Jimmy" Michael's death at sea last Monday is
the latest result of following the pacing machine.
He was the second great rider to die this year from
tho effects of a fall from a bicycle while following
a motor machine. In Michael's death the sport will
lose one of its greatest drawing cards. Although
Michael had not been riding nearly In his oldtlme
form since he met with the accident a year ago
last summer, his name alone was enough to crowd
a house where be rode.
Michael showed the effects of the fall shortly
after he left the hospital. At times his mind was
unbalanced, and he cam* trailing In after riders
that be could easily have beaten had be been his
old «elf. Probably the only well known follower
of the pace in tills country left now Is "Bobby"
Walthour, who made such a fine showing abroad

nowadays is, "How long will Walthour last'"

it» owners and the officers of the clubs whose

cruises In 1905. New boats of the one design class
are being liuilt— more than a hundred of them— at
the different shipyards to rrii .• for the prizes to

and on the famous monarchical plot of May 16.

the victim of a coup d'etat and the Comte de
Chambord of being: proclaimed king, had he not,
with true Bourbon obstinacy, refused to accept
the tricolored flag. Two of the week's novels
are worthy of mention. One is Edmond Haran
court's "Les Benoits," published by Le Librairle
Unlvorselle, a strongly composed and cleverly
written story, the hero of which suffers the
handicap of illegitimate birth; the other Is

that the sport of racing must not be lost sight of
for a moment if new membf-rs are to bo enrolled
and the old ones retained. For yachtsmen to fol
low the flag of their club they must have plenty
of boats to fly it and plenty of races to keep tha
flag waxing perpetually. Judging from present In
dications, next sft.nfon will be the most interesting
one ever seen In the history of American yachting.
The senior metropolitan championship cross-coun
try run of the Amateur Athletlo Union at Travers
Island on Thanksgiving 1 Day was a disapßoinfnent,
owing to John Joyce falling in the early part of the
race, which practically pave it to John J. Daly, the
Irish champion and now a member of the Greater
New-York Irish Athletic Association. The rare
seemed before the Btart to lay between theso two
men. Only a short distance separated tnem when
Joyce went down, and hurt his lee so badly that he
was compel!. •<! to retire from the contest.
The intercollegiate cross- jo-utry run the pre
lay at the same place went easily to Cornell,
as was expected The fact that five of the seven
men were among the first five to finish was more
than was looked for by the enthusiasts of the up
btate university. K. T. Newman, who ,yon the nice
for Cornell, gave a fine exhibition, mid demon
strated that he Is a worthy successor of Schutt,
who is now at Oxford winning- races and who took
first prize for Cornell last year.
The game to decide the high school Eastern foot

cla^s condition on that day. The coach, I. '-V-ilz. of
Columbia, has spent a k 1 portion of his time this
year In developing the team that Is to uphold the
New-York high school honors. Jackson is a power
ful line bi ker. and Tresk, the giant of < 'lint on. is
the se sond ■ ivlest player on the gridiron thi.H year;

mittee met at the Bth Regiment Armory on Satur
day night, and, In compliance with their former
action, disqualified Robert Todd. of the new West
Side Athletic Club. He is the man who foished in
seventh position la the senior cross country cham
pionships on Thursday last at Travers Island, and
the decision changes the score of team work to
euch an extent that the Star Athletic Club of Long
Island City gains third place and the New West
Bide Athletic Club goes back to fourth place. Todd

professionalism.

TO RACE SIDE r»V SIDE.
Automobile and Locomotive +o Run
on Parallel Tracks.
It is rlouhtful If any previous automohilo tourna
ment has aroused as much national and interna
tional Interest as has been shown in the third an
nual international meet on the Ormond-Daytona
course, Florida. Tho correspondence from ever]
stat. In the Union received by the representative
of the Florida East Coast Automobile Association.
at No. 118 Nassau-st., New-York, shows beyond a
doubt that tho famous Florida East Coast speed
course has taken a premier position in th.- minds
<if th>' people interested in the modern time defy
ing sport.
To a Tribune reporter yesterday W. J. Morgan,
the manager of tho tournament, said: 'The appli
cation for information In regard to the races and
other things from rich men who own fast ma
chines and have never before driven in a race is
one of the surprises. Some of them 1. :ve big
powered machines, from Ou to 100 horsepower, and
they believe that they are equal to some of the
records, and I am somewhat fearful in regard to
some of them when they open up the throttle <>f
their engines wide on tho beach. I hope, of course,
that the beach is wide enough and safe enough to
prevent any of thorn dolnp any damage, and it is
quite possible that our time trials the first day
will {rive us a line on some of the new drivers with
big machines, so that we will W prepared to pre
vent any possible accident.
"By the -way, the invitation plan as adopted at
our last annual meeting in Daytona last Febru
ary called for entries by Invitation only. This.
however, raised quite a row, chiefly by one <>r two
men, who must have done something to warrant
them In believing that they would not receive an
invitation. They stood on the corner of Thlrty
elghth-st. and Broadway and raised such a howl
that it -was heard both In the Waldorf-Astoria
and Daytona. I still believe, however, that an In
ternatlonal meet can be thoroughly International,
even to the decision of championships, on the in
vitation plan, aa invitations would certainly be ex
tended to the leading drivers of all countries, i
Btill believe In the invitation Idea, and, unless th.
rules of the governing body of automobile racing
are amended, you will see a race meet next sum
mer purely by invitation.
"Wold was received yesterday from urmond.
from Mr. Kenney, manager of the Inn-on-the-
Beach. that two recent storms have made tho
beach as smooth and as hard as a concrete floor,
and it is now thought that the record by W. K.
VanderblU, Jr.. will go by the board, January 23
to January 2S. when I fully expect tv see 87 sec
onds for the mile done. It would not surprise me
to see Mr. Vunderbllt himself beat his own record,
us I believe he is to-day the greatest driver In the
world, and his popularity is unquestioned."
No previous tournament in this or any other
country will have seen bo many valuable trophies
presented for competition. The total value uf them
will be. upward of $80,000. and at least half of them
are being presented by such well known admirers
of the sport of automoblling as Sir Thomas It.
