Stewards Appeared to Have No
Recourse in the Matter.
Interest in the day's racing at Belmont Park
yesterday was confined almost wholly to the
first appearance as a four-year-old of James R.
, Keel's great sprinter Delhi. The Incidents at
tending it were sufficiently exciting and unex
pected to overshadow every other contest on
the programme. The colt, which many good
judges consider as wonderful a miler a* was
Voter, was named to start In an overnight race
of seven furlongs on the main track for older
horses. As the weight conditions let him in
with 113 pounds, owners of all save two of the
of the ten other horses that were entered
promptly drew out when it became known that
"Jimmie" Rowe really Intended to start Delhi.
The two left in were John E. Maddens three
year-old colt Hot Shot and Frank Regan's
three-year-old filly Witch Hazel.
As they were meeting Delhi at even weights,
according to the scale, neither layers nor play
ers could see why they ' were sent out to meet
the sprinting son of Ben Brush unless It was
for a work or to gather In the small ends of
the purse. Speculation was restricted largely
to the "pikers" who played the field against
Delhi in the proverbial hope that he might
fall down. He did not do that exactly, but he
was disqualified, which served the "pikers* "
m pose quite as well.
Shaw rode Delhi and for six and a half of the
seven furlongs be appeared to be winning the
race as every one expected he would — in a com
mon gallop. At the sixteenth pole, however.
Powers, an apprentice boy who had the leg up
on Witch Hazel, sent the filly alongside Delhi
with a rush as startling as it was unexpected.
Bhaw saw his danger and went to work on
Delhi in dead earnest. The instant be made a
move to draw his whip, however, Delhi swerved
to the outer rail and. bumping into Witch Hazel,
threw the filly completely out of her stride.
This collision alone saved Delhi from defeat,
and as it was, Shaw just managed to squeeze
him home three parts of a length in front of her.
Powers promptly went before the stewards of
the meeting and made a claim of foul against
Delhi They called Shaw before them, and, as
he admitted that his mount had swerved into
Witch Hazel, they had no other alternative,
under the rules of racing-, than to disqualify
the Keen? crack.
As is the case -.'her. one of the stewards of a
meeting has a horse In a race, he temporarily
fives way to some one else, and yester
day Mr. Keene retired from the stand
while the rare was being run, and his
place was taken by Harry Payne Whitney.
The two other stewards at The time were
Ilerrr.an B. Duryea and B. B. Howland. When
they disqualified his colt, Mr. Keene made
no attempt to conceal the fact that he was ex
tremely angry, and for a time the clubhouse and
j addook -.ver. full of wild rumors of what the
of Castleton was yoing to do about It.
The story was freely h out that he would
I K/ements of all his horses at Bel-
Park, save 6ysonby*£, In the Withers, to be
run on Saturday. Mr. Keene dented this em
phatlcally. but a the same time to n ts
friends that he thought a certain amount of
is Inspired the stewards in making their de
agalnst his colt. The public, however, was
practically unanimous In Ms opinion -hat Delhi
had committed a palpable foul, and deserved to be
disqualified. " tteroffact, the stewards had
voice hi the matter whatever after Shaw
had admitted to them that his mount interfered
with WWfcto Hazel Hot Shot was evidently far
fro;n being in form, and could never raise 'n re
spectable gallop.
The Van Ness, a selling stake for three-year
olds at Fix and a half furlongs on the main
track, whs won by the outsider Jennie McCabe
from h half dozf n fairh good platers. The filly
trot «ff none too well, but profited by what
• to he her misfortune, and when the
«f«ng wide at the stretch turn Johnson
skinned the rn\\ with her, and, saving a
ground, came away and won by nearly three
; Qgths. Black Prince beat Quadrille, the favor
ite, for the piace.

Opinions differed widely yesterday as to whether
Delhi or Shaw was responsible for the foul which
resulted In the disqualification of the colt and gave
the race to Witch Hazel. Some thought that Shaw
was overconfident, and, thinking he had the race
won. was easing: his mount up when the filly chal
lenged. In his haste to draw his whip he let go
the colt's head, which caused him to swerve. Others
thought that Witch Hazel had Delhi straight as
a string and that he swerved, as tired horses will,
when called on for a final effort. Still others in
sisted that Shaw knew he was beaten and deliber
ately attempted to block Powers Off, taking a
chance that he would not make a protest. Shaw
himself says that the colt dodged from under him
the second he attempted to draw his whip. What
ever tho cause may have been, the colt's perform
ance was far from a satisfactory one and disap
pointed his admirers immensely. A second class
filly like Witch Hazel had no business to be near
enough to Delhi to make him even extend himself
if he were the colt ha was a year ago
Curiously enough, Just before the race was run In
which Ills colt was disqualified Mr. Keene asked
some acquaintance in the paddock how long it
was going to be before some official notice was
taken of the palpable fouls which were occurring
in almost every race. The answer came sooner than
he expected. Powers' a protest, by the way, is the
first that baa been made at Belmont Park, although
11 would seem that every boy who has ridden a
race there has had occasion to make at least, one.

The warm sunshine at noon brought out a big
crowd at the Polo Grounds yesterday to watch the
Giants beat the Cardinals to the tune of 4 to 0.
The same was tame enough to keep the enthusiasm
of the crowd from really bubbling over, even when
three Giants strolled across the > rubber in the
seventh iriningr. For the first time In the series St.
'""is was outclassed by the home team.
When St. Louis went to the bat In the first
inning, and Mathewson struck out Clarke, Shannon
and Smoot In succession, the crowd gurgled in en
joyment, but cuickly subsided as they watched
the Giants die on first when their turn came. The
first run was made In the second liming. Devlin,
who had walked to first and stole second, got
home on Gilbert's two bagger. Barring "Matty"
giving Brain and Dunleavy their base on balls In
the fourth lnnlner. nothing In particular happened
until the seventh Inning. Tin Devlin, the llr.^t
man up, (singled, Gilbert flied out, Bowerman and
Mathewson singled, scoring Devlin, and raced home
themselves on Brown hitting to the ropes and an
all around fumble by the Cardinal Infield. The

Fordham Beats Amherst in Hard
Fought Game.
In a game that was full of brilliant plays the
Fordham University team yesterday defeated the
heavy hitting Amherst College nine by the score
of 2 to 1. Both pitchers were in excellent form
and received fine support. L. Hartman, Bhean and
Robertson executed a fast double play, which was
one of the features* of the game
Murray, Fordham's southpaw, was at his best.
allowing but flve Scattered hits and giving but two
bases on balls. Newell, the clever Amberst twirler,
pitched the best gate that has been seen on Ford
ham Field this year, allowing only three hit*, which
were bunched In the seventh inning, and permitting
only two men to walk.
ITp to the fifth inning neither side scored, going
out In one-two-three order. In the fifth inning
Allaire, for Amher^t. singled, Newell doubled to
right, and Allaire scored as Gargan mulled Me-
Lane's good throw to the plate to catch him.
In the seventh Inning Kordham scored two earned
runs, on singles by McLean and Shean and kod
ertson's double along the third base line which
sent in McLean and Bhean. Aftel this neither Bias
was able to score. Other features of the g*™ o
were the fast work of both Infields and Robert
son's remarkable catch of a short fly over first
ban*. The score follows:

Walter J. Travis Again Heads the
Metropolitan Handicap List.
Walter J. Travis has the honor of heading afain
the list of players whose official handicaps for the
season were announced yesterday by Lelghton
ralkina. ehnirman of the handicap committee. That
the honor Is not Insignificant is shown by the fact
that 1.560 golfers belonging to clubs in the Metro
politan Association have been reckoned good enough
to receive a rating of seventeen or better at the
hands of the committee. About eleven hundred
players were similarly rated In 1903 and about one
thousand in 1902. Allowing for a natural Increase
of on-- hundred players a year there are probably
at least two hundred who find a place on the list
this >cor owin? to the new system of handicap
ping, which takes into consideration the greater
chance to Improve which some players have over
tit hers.
Men who by the old system got seventeen strokes
get in the neighborhood of fourteen strokes on tho
present list. Travis Is put at plus one. but he is
still three strokes from his nearest competitors—
F. S. Douglas, .Jerome D. Travers and K. M Byers
;is he was last year.
"If any one hlnks that two strokes would have
been enough." said Mr. Calkins yesterday. it
might be interesting to know that the only doubt
entertained by the committee was whether to place
him at plus one or plus two. To be on the safe side.
W> decided to place him at plus one, entirely con
fident that he Is at least one stroke better than par
when averaging his best form, on any links in the
world. Ol course, we might have put him at
rcrn fch and raised everybody's hßndicap one stroke,
but that would not be handicapping on the basis
of par. That would be handicapping on Travis, and
if he .should happen to die, some one else would
have to be picked out as the scratch man. and all
handicaps adjusted accordingly."
What the committee has sertormry attempted to
do is to make IU ratings not on a player'a absolute
records with respect to par, but acording to hU
measure of chance to imjuf.ve. An underlying
principle of the now system is that each pU'.yer
shall be rated on his avenue* best game.
"If on the new :Ist some men seem to be handl-
Capped rather low," commented Mr. Calkin*.
"either because they seemed to win very little lust
yeai or •■!*•■ because, while able to play a fine
game, they often play very bad!y. it may lie said
thai our plan in such enfes lias bwn to itISM gSWI
absolutely what may be callid the bad play of
BUCO men exr -jit m cases where we ihink it pre
dominated hy :l large percentage the likelihood of
k 1 od play."
Uouglus. Byers and Travers get a rating of 2 anil
Brokaw, Macdonald and H^inliurt are the "V men.
It is a rattier strinliig fact that Harold Wiltux. of
Montclalr, the present champion of the association
Issuing the list, is no nssiSl the top than in the "i"
'lass. ;:!oiig with Murray oiyphanl. the New-Jersey
State Association champion; Max Behr, A. N. Km
naday. John M. Ward and R C. Watson, jr.

All Ready to Meet Yale Freshman at New-
Haven To-morrow.
The freshman crew of Columbia University will
leave for Now-Haven to-night, where It will meet
the Yale freshmen in a race on Lake Whitney to
morrow. Columbia's prospects of winning have
been greatly lessened by the fact that George Mac
kenzie, the stroke, has a bad knee, and will not
stroke the crew, and may be unable to row at all.
Mackenzie has stroked the crew the whole season.
The eight understands him, and he Is an excellent
oarsman. Holbert. who replaces him. Is a good
oarsman, but lacks experience in the stroke posi
tion. In case Mackenzie rows at all it will be at
No. 2. Mr. Goodwin believes that his weak knee
will not be felt so much there. Kobbe will row at
No. . In case Mackenzie does not.
The crew is further handicapped at New-Haven
by the fact that they must row over a course with
Which they are totally unacquainted. The course
is about one and one-eighth mile long, and near
the end there la a turn. To make this bend without
losing a great deal Of time the coxswain must un
derstand the course thoroughly, and have plenty of
practice. This practice, of course, the Columbia
coxswain does not have. . „

drum was not unlike the sounds that came froni'
