VrrrJ.s All Existing World's Rec
ords for Seven Furlongs.
Roseben. tho son of Ben Strome — Leaf,
took up 125 pounds at Belmont Park yesterday.
aasS rrji seven furlonjrs in the remarkable time
cf 1 22. ' He not only broke the world's record
for a circular track by almost three seconds, but
surpassed the world's mark for the distance on a
•trs'jrhtaway course. The old record for a cir
cular trad: was 1:14 4-5. made by Halifax, while
the old mark for a straight course was 1:234,
sjaaaV by Bella E.. with 103 pounds up, at Moa
mouth Pork in r- 1 ". and practically equalled by
Perverse at Dalmont Pork last fall, when the
ran "ovm the straight course in 1:23 3-5.
"2>»v>-"* Johnson, who owns the great sprinter,
was so confident that Roseben could break the
trac!: record of 1:25 that he wagered a large
sum stld to be $20,000, at even money, with two
or three clubhouse commissioners. Several of
h's fri«nds followed his lead, and "Cad" Doggett.
wHo accepted most of the money offered on that
basis, was fairly mobbed beforo he declared his
boo!; closed.
Ha!f a gale of wind was blowing, which Rose
ben had to face for three furlongs, but which
helped him materially through the last half mile.
When he had flashed by the Judges and the
tlrae was hung out, a mighty cheer went up
from the crowd In the grandstand, which was
redoubled when Shaw brought the good horse
back to the Judges' stand to dismount. Not one
there wa* who did not realize how brilliant tho
performance was. and who did not consider hlm-
S*lf fortunate to have seen turf history made.
Harry Payne Whitney expressed the feelings
of a larf* number of those present when he Bald:
"I never saw a greater performance, and It
••ems a pity that arrangements had not been
made to time him for a full mile, as he couM
not only have made a now world's record for a
circular track, but would. In all probability, have
beaten Salvator's record of l 8"-i. made over the
straight course at Monmouth Park in a race
eralnct time." Ro*eben's performance was all
the more remarkable Inasmuch as he had no
pacemaker to carry him along. His only op
ponent yesterday was lengths behind after the
first few strides.
Roseben wan entered with thirteen others In
de race for all ages, at seven furlongs. Under
the conditions he got in at 12*5 pounds, so That
the owners and trainers of the other horses, with
one exception, scratched rather than chase him
home. M. Hirsch sent th* two-year-old B»au
dere, to the post to earn second money. A mur
mur of discontent went up from the crowd when
the Jockey board went up announcing only two
•tarter*, and the majority waited with some
Sign* of Impatience, as ev*>n the most confirmed
pikers would not back Beauclere at 60 to 1.
"ThiSwls a Joke." "I'm sorry I came down If
this Is the best th**y can offer." and other ex
pressions of the kind were heard on all sides.
Borne did not even take the trouble to come out
of the ring to see th" practical walkover.
What promised to be a farce developed Into a
remarkable spectacle, however, and those who
had scoffed the loudest cheered the loudest after
they had s*«--n the great flight of speed. Few
knew that Roseben would try for a record, but
all realized it as tho barrier was released and
Ehaw was sc-cn sending his mount away at rac
ing speed. Beauclore was distanced in the- first
.furlong, and kept dropping further and further
behind, but Roseh<-n sped on with Shaw crouched
down over his withers and ski!: illy guiding him
over the shortest mute. When straightened out
for the run to the Judges Shaw called on Rose
ben for a final effort and rode him out through
the last furlong- The crowd, at last awake to
the possibilities, turned eyes and glasses on the
timing stand, where Mr. Baretto could be seen
carefully studying his watch. Then 1:22 flashed
on the board, and enthusiasm broke loose.
Roseben appeared in no way distressed when
he came back to th« Judges' stand, and walked
away as If it was nothing unusual to break all
existing records. Fhaw, who rode the horse, said
that he ran smoothly over even' step of the Jour
new, and while he ksear be was racing fast did
not realize that he was going faster than any

Light Work for the — Rulon-
Miller Reports for Practice.
[By TeVprapb to Th« Tribune.]
Princeton. Oct. 16.-The 'varsity did not do much
hard work to-day, the practice consisting mainly
of signal drill and some kicking from formation.
The 'varsity substitutes lined up eealnst the
scrubs, however, for a lively twenty minute ecrlm
mage. in which the latter had much the better
of it and scored two touchdowns. O'Brien caught
a 'varsity forward pass and tore down the field
for fifty yards and a touchdown, while "VVynn
scored the second touchdown on the scrub.
Sumner Rulon-Miller. the star fullback an!
sprinter, reported for practice to-day. He played
fullback on the championship 1903 team, and the
following spring: won a place on the Intercollegiate
dashes. Ho also played fullback on the 1904 team,
but last year was forced to leave college for a
year on account of ill health. When he returned
this fall his condition was improved, but he did
rot decide to play until to-day. He was not In
the l!ne-up. but devoted his attention to kicking
and showed his old-time form by some good punts
of forty and fifty yards. His speed and experience
make him a valuable end to pair with cap
Wlster. and Princeton followers will anxiously
watch his development.
Tenney ran the 'varsity substitutes to-day ana
showed ability as & klckor and In generalship.
Evan Cameron, '07, a two hundred pound new cen
tre., who first reported yesterday, was conspicuous
by his work, and kept Whaley on the jump.
In speaking of the navy game last Saturday.
"The Daily Princetonlan" says:
Princeton's play was disorganized during the
first half, and little team work was In evidence.
It was the first real test the university team has
had this PAason. and a decided reverse In the play-
Ing- of the entire team was noticeable from that
which they had displayed In the Lehlgrh game. In
stead of exhibiting their usual snap and vigor and
relying upon open play for substantial gains, the
men seemed to lag-. Though the forward pass
was occasionally attempted, but ehort distances
were realized, while in several Instances this play
failed entirely, owing to the vigilance of the
Navy's- ends and backs.
On the- defence the line played a strong- end con
sistent game, but on the offence was unable to
open up holes for the runner, and encountered
considerable difficulty in blocking their opponets
effectively on kicks. The Interference on end runs
was loose, while the backs failed to cut in Quickly
enough on plays outside of tackle. Poor Judgment
In the selection of plays was also shown.
In the second half a general strengthening- was
apparent. More speed and vim characterized the
play of all the men. and th« ball was kept in their
opponents' territory most of the time.
Two Touchdowns Scored by Free Use of the
Open Style of Game.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Cambridge. Mass.. Oct. 16.— The Harvard 'varsity
•Uren gave the best exhibition of football under
the new rules that they have shown this year in
a 13-minute scrimmage against the second team
this afternoon. Although Newhall. who played
quarterback for the 'varsity, showed his lack of
practice by rumbling and running his team slow
ly, the "varsity pained at will.
By far the greater number of the first team's
plays were end runs, forward passes and short
kicks. At this style of play trie Harvard men
showed a smoothneeg and surety of execution that
had been wanting up to date. The two most hrilr*
lant plays of the practice wero a S6-yard run by
Foster around the end and a triple pass worked by
Newhall, Lockwood and Orr, in which the forward
pass was used from Lockwood to Orr after a
double pass between Xewhall and Lockwood on
a quarterback run.
Orr, who stands two Inches over six feet, was a
tower of strength in all the forward pass work.
"Jack" Wendell was at fullback on the 'varsity
end ripped through the second's line for ten and
fifteen yards at will. Captain Foster also played
brilliantly, being a big factor in the two touch
downs that the first team made.
The 'varsity lined up. from left to right, as fol
lows: Miller, end; Osborne. Burr, Kerst»>rg, Inches,
Orr- quarter. Newhall: left half, Foster; right half,
Lockv.-oud; fullback, Wendell.
Forbes the Only Regular Not Able to Report
for Practice.
[By Tel^sraph to The Tribune. 1
New Haven, Oct. 16.— The Yale 'varsity play
ers were kept on the side lines again to-day,
except for a brief signal drill, in which "Tad"
Jones. Roome and Howard Jones took part for the
first time in two weeks. The only 'varsity absentee
from the regular line-up was Forbes, who tried to
play a game in tight shoes and had to lay off be
cause of sore feet. He will be all right by Saturday.
The 'varsity substitutes and second eleven lined
up lor a short scrimraage. The forward pass was
tried repeatedly, but It did not work particularly
well. Captain Morse was on the field, although he
has not fully recovered his strength since his at
tack of ptomaine poisoning.
Zimowsky, who was fullback at Brown University
two years ago, reported for work to-day. Ho has
been behind in his studies, but has managed to
work clear.
In a slow but exciting prattle© game the JCew
York Vnlverbity football team defeated Webb
Academy yesterday at Ohio Field, by a score of
6 to 0. Tho only touchdown was made In tho first
half by Mowen. on a 65-yard run.
In the second hnlf the schoolboys made a good
fight. Rnrl after forcing the ball to New York's
35-yfard line tried two field goals, which went wide.

Time of halves — 10 minutes. Referee — ("tain, of
Annapolis. Oct. 16.— The Naval Academy football
squad had a light practice to-day in preparation
for the St. John's game to-morrow. The coachos
and team were much encouraged over the result
of the Princeton gams and now feel that there is
a good chance of victory over tli" army.
Of the second string men of last year Slln-'luff
at centre; Magruder. at tackle; Pague, at end, and
Chambers, at guard, have made good. Bernard
who played at half last year, has beon shifted to
end ar.d has developed into a fast, heady player.
Bllngluff, at centre, weighs U6 poun<ls passes well
and is good on defensive work. Magruder Is a
fair tackle, but not so good as (irady of last year's
team. l>ague, et end, is a faFt. aggressive player
but rather light. The team expects an easy game
with Bt. John's.

Darkness Stops Extra Hole Match
Between Byers and Smith.
Hamilton. Mass., Oct. 16.— Six well contested
matches wero played ln the Invitation golf
tournament of the Myopia Hunt Club to-day.
W'Rlter J. Travis won both his matches and
reached the final round, but his opponent Jb in
doubt, as darkness stopped an exciting match
between Eben M. Byers, the national champion,
and W. P. Smith, of Philadelphia, on the nine
teenth green. They will continue the struggle
ln the morning, and the winner will meet Travis
at thirty-six holes for tho trophy.
Byers played brilliant golf in the morning
round and had little difficulty in putting out
Hugo R. Johnstone by sup and 4 to play. He
was a strong favorite over Smith ln tho semi
final round, but tho Phlladelphian, who had
beaten Stevenson ln the morning, was on vis
game and clung 6O persistently to the national
champion that when the home green was
reached tho match was all suqare. An extra
hole was played in the gathering gloom, but
when this was halved tho players decided to
let the match go ever till to-morrow, as search
lights would have ber-n necessary to follow the
W. C. Chick, of the Oakley Country Club, gave
Travis a hard fight in th» other half of the semi
final round, and could not claim a victory until
the last hole was played. The one time cham
pion made few mistakes, but Chick was also ln
happy vein, and played so well that Travis had
to get half on the home green to win. He won
the hole, however, and earned the match by 2
up. The summary follows:
Myopia Invitation tournament: second round —
W. P. Smith, of Philadelphia, defeated T. G.
Stevenson, «f Myopia. r> up and 4 to play.
Eben M. Byers. of Pittsburg, defeated Hugo R.

Athletes at N. Y. U. Await a Decision Under
Eligibility Rules.
N'<nv York University athletes nre awaiting tha
decision of Cbaacellci MacCracken on th<* question
of allowing members of last year's teams who are
In the professional schools of the college to play
this year. It has not been decided whether gradu
ate student* who, as umitTßraduates. playf-d less
than four years will he allowed to represent the
university in intercollegiate contests.
The sentiment is strongly ln favor of a liberal
interpretation of the proposed eligibility rules.
This question will be settled before the first foot

Crew To Be Coached Along Neva
Lines on Rotting Machines.
James Rice, coach of the Columbia crew, will
work along new lines when the men begin practice
on the lowing machines. He will use the ordinary
rowing machine, but will have fix^d on the end of
each handle a short oar blade. 30 that the men can
see the exact position of the oar. Besides this, he
expects to have mirrors put up. ln which the oars
men can watch their work.
Mr. Rice believes that the oar blade, ln connection
with the mirror, will be a great help in teaching
the proper way to feather. He finds a disposition
on tho part of the men to clip the stroke, and this
t« wants to avoir). Up is row teaching the men to
do away with the quick turn of the wrist to which
they have been accustomed, ar.d to use in its place
a prndual turn, beginning ns the body swings for
wa rd.
Captain Boyle is worrying over the small number
of freshmen that have reported. Most of the time
there hive been scarcely enough men to make up
two boats. Those that are out are lighter than
isual. The freshmen wore transferred from sta
tionary to sliding seits on Monday, and, according
to tho co.ich, nre showing fairly gocd form.
The first of a series of fall handicap cross coun
try runs will take place at Columbia T'n'.verslty
thls afternoon. Over fifty men hay» entered. In
order that new men may not be discouraged, no
'varsity men will be allowed to enter. The course
will extend down Riverside Drive to 104 th street
and back.
Fencing practice it Columbia began yesterday,
under the direction of Mr. Murray, of the New
York Athletic Club, who coach.'d the team last
year. Three members of last year's 'varsity squad

Thomas W. Laxvson to Dispose of
His Blooded Stock.
Boston. Oct. IG.— Announcement was mad» to
day that the blooded stock at Thomas W. Law
son's extensive farm, known as Dreamwold. lo
cated ln the little town of Egypt, a few miles
south of Boston, would be sold at the Old Glory
sale, at New York, next month. Among the few
famous horses which Mr. Lawson will keep will
be Boralma, the trotter which won the Kentucky
Futurity and Transylvania stakes.
Dare Devil, -which has a record of 2:03, and for
which Mr. Lawson paid $50,000, together with some
of the most noted brood mares in the country will
go under the hammer.
Mr. Lawson spent much of his time at Dream

time ago. It Is sail that grief over her death has
led htm to take this step.
Will Play for World? 18.1 Billiard
Title To-night.
Jacob Bchaefer. the "wizard" of billiards, -win

world's championship at IS-inch balkllne. one "hot
In. and a side bet of 1500. m .'he concert ball of
Madison Square Garden at i o'clock to-night.
Hoppe is the holder of the title at present.
It will be a meeting between youth and old age.
as Schaefer Is a veteran past the half century
mark, while Hoppe Is still In his teens. The sale
of seats for the match has been heavy. The win
ner will take the net gate receipts In addition to
the elde bets and the championship emblem.
The odds early In th* practice- favored Schaefer.
at 3 to 2, but recently dropped to even money.
Both players have practised faithfully, and «re In
excellent condition for the match to-night. Ed
ward F. McLaughltr* will be the referee.
Hoppe won the 18.1 championship from Maurice
Vlgnaux. the aged French expert. In Paris, on
January 15. 1906, by a score of 500 to 33. George
F. Slosson promptly challenged Hoj>pe. and the
match was played at the Grand Central Palace, in
this city, on March 23. 1306. before a big crowd.
Hoppe won by & score of 500 to 391. and retained
the title. After the 13.2 championship tournament,
last April. In the Madison Square Garden Concert
Hall. Schaefer challenged lloppo for the title, and
to-night's match will decide the possessor.
The first world's championship tournament at 13.1
billiards was played In the concert ball at Mad
ison Square Garden from November 20 to December
4, ISST. The contestants and the order of finish
follow: George F. Slosson. Jacob Schaefer. Frank
C. Ives. Maurice Daly and George B. Sutton.
Schaefer wrested the title away from Slosson en
February 5. ISM. when he defeated him In the
concert hall at Madison Square Garden, by a score
of 600 to 696. The title passed to Ives on April 4.
1898. when he defeated Schaefer in the Central
Music Hall. In Chicago, by a score of 600 to 428.
There >^as no challenge outstanding, and Ives de
clined to accept the emblem, so, under the rules.
it reverted to the donors, the Brunswteke-Balke-
Collender Company, and there was no contest again
until 1901.
The second world's championship tournament at
18.1 billiards was played In the concert hall in Mad
ison Square Garden on December 2 to 10. 1901. The
contestants and order of finish were: 9chaefer,
Slosson. Barutel. Sutton, Mornlngstar and Howison.
This gave Schaefer the 18.1 championship for the
second time. Sutton challenge Schaefer from
Paris, and, as the latter refused to defend the title,
it was awarded to Sutton on October 30, 1903. On
March 4, 1904 Vignaux defeated Sutton in Paris by
a score of 600 to 387. and took the title. Vlgnaux
held the championship until Hoppe took it from him
last January-
The holders of the 18.1 championship in order since
its inception. In 1597. to be present time, are. there
fore, as follows: Slosson, Schaefer, Ivea. Sf-haefer.
Sutton, Vignaux and Hoppe. "Wizard" Schaefer,
It will be noted, is the only player who has held the
title twice. Sutton is the only holder who has won
the championship by default.
The conditions for the championship match to
night call for 600 points at IS.I balkline billiards.
Speaking of the chances of Hoppe and Sehaefar
last night, "Student' Slosson. who has met both
players often In competition on the green table.
From the form shown by Hoppe and Schaefer In
recent practice I consider them to be evenly
matched. It looks to me like a case of even money
and take your choice. In my opinion, victory will
go to the player who first gets the balls under con
trol and get 3 a substantial run of 100 points or more.
If Schaefer is at his b?st he ought to win. but
Hoppe is no mean adversary.
To-morrow night, In the same hall. Slosson and
Button will play for the world's championship at
18.2. which is at present held by Slosson.

Qualities cf the players, without subjecting them
to the chances of injury which characterize the
present game of football. My belief that "soccer"*
football will do tills is based on personal observa
tion of the game.

Yale and Princeton will fisfct It rot for tie
team championship of the Interconeslat«*Q«j*
Association at Garden City to-day. In the ©d«oI
Ing matches yesterday Yale defeated Cornell by
a score of 20 to 0, and Princeton defeated Har
vard 15% to 2%.
The- decisive defeat received by Harvard \rt«
the surprise of the day. With the exception at
Tampleton Brlgrjs. all of the Crimson represent*.
tives were defeated. Brings outplayed W. T.
West, the Princeton captain, who failed to show
his best game. Howard J. Gee, who played No. 1
for "Old Nassau."' proved too steady for H. H.
"Wilder. There was little to choose between thea
oft the tee. but on the green* the Richmond
County open tournament winner was always
master of the situation.
Although badly beaten as a team, two of th«
Cornell players had the satisfaction of at lean
halving their matches. C. R. Btull. captain of
the Ithaca forces, held "W. E. Clow. Jr.. who led
off for Tale, and T. H. Adler. Cornell, finished all
square with W. W. Howland.
Robert Abbott, of Yale, holder of the individual
title, barely managed to defeat C. W. Cornell.
Abbott's slashing long game was In evidence, as
usual, but Indifferent putting prevented him
from winning by a much wider marsin. (Joins;
to the twelfth hole Abbott drove into the trap
with a cleek. The hazard is about 230 yards
from the tee. and the- shot was extremely lengthy
even with the following wind. Abbott lost a
bail going to the long seventh hole, and an 98
was the best his card could show for the round.
The best Individual effort was an S2 by Dwight
Partridge, the former interscholastlc champion.
This was good scoring in the wind. His card
read as follows:
Out 4 4 3 • 4 4 « * ♦—
la 5 4 3 5 5 0 5 4 3—11—323 — 11—32
The most decisive, victory of the day was that
of G. V. Rotan. Tale, over E. S. Ir.gersoll. Cor
nell. The former, who only made last place on
hl3 team after a play-off, went entirely too fast
for the Ilhaca student, who finished 13 down.
On the college system of scorin? the Tale
player added 8% points to h!3 team's total.
Much Interest was taken in the efforts of the
players to negotiate the undulating greens,
which are now In commission. The twelfth
green probably had the players guessln?: more
than any of tha others. Here the artificial,
billowy "undulations are almost as high as a
nan's head. The hole yesterday wai placed
within about ten feet of one of these upheavals,
bo that an over-approach invariably left the
player In an awkward situation. In playing
back over th 3 hillock nearly all used mashies.
and even then they found It Impossible to lay the
ball dead.
The students have different views re&ardtaj
the undulations. Some declare they make tin
putting: more Interesting, while others say toe
element of luck fteurea too much. As an exam
ple. Ellis Knowles and R. S. Owens both madi
their approaches to the twelfth preen a trl2»
too strong. Knowles's ball just had force
enoueh to reach the top and then roll down ca
the far side. Owens's ball also reached tha
top. struck something, stopped for an instant
and then trickled back dead to the hole.
The genera! condition of the course was excel
lent, and the greens appeared to be on better
turf than earlier in the season. In the final
team match to-day between Tale and Princeton
the men trill play thirty-six holes. The sum
mary of yesterday's play follows:
