Orcnoad. Pis.. Jan. 25. — Fred Marriott faced
Instant death In the automobile speed carnival
on th* beach hey* to-day. He was driving the
otanley ste*jn*r, called "the bug," In an effort
to break Mm own world's record of 28 1-5 seo
fends tor en* mil*, and was fairly flying over the
«and course at a rat* of speed of more than two
miles a mlmxte, when the car met a slight bump
in the beach and was hurled into the air and
p&attered to fragmenTs when It fell and hurtjed
isJonc the course. Marriott was seriously bur
Knot fatally Injured.

finally turned completely over.

Marriott regained oonsclousness quickly, but
It was «e«n that he had sufOml severe ln-
Jurtes. He was picked up quickly by wlllinff
hands and carried to the cluhhous?. where a
cursory examination of Ills Injuries was made.
Humors that his right eye was probably lost
w«r* quickly contradlctea. and a further exam

The scalp, face and hands and arms were gashed
.and torn, and Internal Injuries may develop, al-
: though he Is believed to be out of danger.
It Is believed that Marriot; owes his escape
from Instant death to the fact that the fuse
ping In the boiler "blew out at the moment of
,lhs accident and permitted the steam to *.scape.
. After Marriott had regained consciousness he
[i txx>aln*d brokenly that the car had been
IdsfßWß In the air by an uneven spot in the
ht&ch. He said:
I was running at the rate of 12.". miles an

New Course Planned for Wee Burn
< Clvb — Various Notes.
The Wee Burn Golf Club, near Noroton. Conn.,
is to have a new course. Although it Is the tpoond
oldest golfing organization in Connecticut, the Wee
Burn club has b«*-n handicapped because of the
shortness of the links, -which covered a playing
length of About 2,700 yards. This was not so bad
la tho early days, but with the advent of th« rub
ber covered balls th* members quickly saw the
need for more room.
The Wee Burn course was laid out In th* spring
of 1838 by G«org4 Ft rath, who acted as profes
sional there for noveral years. It was at We« Burn
that Mrs. C. T. Stout, then Miss Genevleve Hooker,
first began to play golf. Under Strath's instruction
che improved rapidly, and it is a matter of history
how this remarkable, player won the women's na
tional championship twice and the metropolitan
title four times. Strath Is also credited with bring
ing out Chart— K. BftSly whoso country borne Is
scarcely an iron shot from one of tho we* Burn
green*. B*srjr, in addition to winning the metro
politan championship at Tax Hill* In ISO 6, was
thrice returned a winner of th* Connecticut title.
According to present plann. the n«w course will
he r*«<iy for ;.lay by next fall. It will extend over
«W eanio country now i:«" 1, creasing the burn sev
ere! times. The drive trom the eighth tee will be
over a pond, and tho t'.tnl length of the nine-hole
circuit willl'e closo to 8,200 ruble yards, as follows:

Walter J. Travis, three times winner of the ama
teur championship and one* of the title In Great
Britain, has decided to frlve- up th« advertising
liusineex. On February 1 he will connect himself
with a Stock Exchange- house, and have the man
agoment of an uptown office.

American Rowing Association Will Refund
Fees to Crews That Start
Philadelphia, Jan. 23— The stewards of th* Amer
ican Rowing Association, whose fifth annual re
gatta will be held on May X. are planning not
only to give every Impetus to college rowing, but
likewise to lnterscholastlc rowing, which, they
think, has been sadly neglected by the various
rowing bodies of this country. From Its Inception
the association has been working along this line,
and each regatta has been of more Interest to tho
This year the race for schoolboy eights will be
second in importance only to the junior college
race. Although It Is still too early to make definite
announc*xn«!ii concerning the entries. It Is almost
certain t iiiit there will be at least four school
rrewn entered, and there Is some likelihood that
this number may b« doubled. In order to encour
age scholastic towing the stewards have reduced
the entry f«e to «v. and this amount will be re
funded to all crews which start.
The stewards also purpose to encourage elurht
oaxed scull racing by arranirlng for another raos,
open to college* and clubs alike. Last year the
vnlverslty of Pennsylvania developed such a orew,
urid Waul, tho coach, was so well pleased with
the results obtulned that he wllldev*lop another.
In addition to having Cornell, Harvard, Tale and
Pennsylvania represented with junior eights, it Is
now almost oertaln that Georgetown and Columbia
will enter crews, and Syracuse mar also *nt*r.
Lasicer and Marshall Will Begin
Match for Title To-day.
Dr. Eiuanuel Lasker and Flunk 3. Marshall
will meet to-day In the first game of their
matrti for the world's chess championship. The
gam* will bejrtn at 3 o'clock In the alsembly
hall of the Thomas Jefferson Building:. No. 4
Court Square. Brooklyn. Because of the fact
that Dr. L«asker. holder of th* championship,
has not been called upon to defend his title tn
more than ten years, there is a widespread In
terest In the encounter.
The masters have received communications
requesting; the detailed wo res of their games
from all parts of America and Europe, and from
such far distant points as Jerusalem, the Trans
vaaJ. China and Australia. In fact, the chess
world is on the tiptoe of expectation and Is
prepared for a feast.
Both men yesterday declared themselves to b*
In fine fettle. Dr. Lasker. somewhat burdened
•with business connected with publishing his
books, anserted. without wishing to make light
of hla adversary, that ho l<x>kod forward to tne
contest .-is a holiday, when he could coat aside
everything that would In the l«aat tend to dis
tract liis attention from the matter lv hand, and
devote his whole energy to defending his title
and winning the match.
Marshall, srbilfl not inclined to be boastful,
has no lack of confidence in his ability to make
matters Interesting for the champion He has
many frteuds who believe he can win. The scries
will be open to the public, not being under club
management. Tho playing sessions am from
8 r- m. to 8P- ln -» an< l from 8 p. in. to 11 p. m.

The Now York and Boston Automobile BouJe

through Massachusetts, a part of Rhode Island.
Connecticut and a part of the Btat* of New
York to a tormlnus in the suburbs of New York.
There will be two roadways, on* for cars go-
Ing west and the other for oars going east
Gates will !»«» established every six or seven
miles on the north and on the south, so that all
the cities and towns can gain access to th*
boulevard, buying a ticket at the gat« they en
ter, to any point they may want to go, giving up
the coupon at tho gate they leave. A mileage
fare will be charged for each mile run, probably
about five rents a mile for large touring cars
and ab"ut three cents a mile for the smaller
cars. There will be no grade crossings on high
ways- or Kteam or electric rallrouds. All rivers
will be crossed by special bridges.
The surface of tho road will be so constructed
that there will be no dust, and the material will
be of such a character that the cars will not
tear the road up so that it will become rough, as
in the. case of the ordinary macadam highways.
There will be no speed limit, but the travelling
publlo will be expected to use Judgment in oper-
Rtlng their cars. There will b« a number of
garagos along thn boulevard where motorists
can purchase supplies when required. There
will also be established first class cafes at Im
portant point*, so that everything required by
tho motorists travelling between these cities
will be supplied. The distance between New
York and Boston over this boulevard will be
much shorter than the routes taken at the pres
emt time, and the trip can be accomplished in
from five to seven hours without difficulty.
At 8 o'clock this morning the three Maxwell
fuel tenting cars will start from the garage at
No. 317 West 69th street t»r Boston. Tho

A. Grant, who is conducting the test. S. Y.
Beach will aot as guide. The rout* to be fol
lowed lies through Bridgeport, New Haven,
Merlden and Hartford. Gonn., and Springfield
and Worcester, Mass. If good weather prevails, it
is thought that the cars will reach Boston lat«
to-night. Secretary Butler of the Automobile
Club of America said yesterday that H. B. Saw
yer had been appointed by th* olub to act as
observer. "The Automobile Club of America la
extremely interested in this run." said Mr. But
ler, "because of the denatured alcohol contest
which it has planned for the spring. 1 think
H. A. Grant is doing a good thing, and I heart
ily lndorsa It"
The use of three 20-horsepower stock touring
cars, unchanged structurally or mechanically,
will increase the importance of whatever good
may result from tho tabulation of cost and
quantity of the three, hydro-carbons, gasolene,
kerosene and denatured alcohol, to be used as
fuel. Th* cars are provided with motors of
low compression, so that whatever efficiency
may be secured through th* us* of alcohol and
kerosene will b* suspectlbl* of Increase, since
these fuels require higher compression than
does gasolene for the best results. The carbu
retter with which the car* are equipped makes
It possible to use various fuels by Ita peculiar

count of the difficulty that would be met In set

he had abandoned that building as a show place,
and Worcester's first exhibition would be hill

Dartmouth Smothers Columbia in
Two-Mile Relay Race.
Fart time was the rule at the annual Inter
collegiate, lnterscholastlc and open athletic
meet, held under tha auspices of the Columbia
University Track Athletic Association at Mad
ison Square Garden last night.
The feature of the meet was the defeat of M.
W. Bheppard by P. Nebrlck In the one-mile In
vitation race for the Martinique Cup. In the J
capital time of 4:24 2-5. William C. Frank was j
th* only other starter. Xebrick represented the '

At the crack of th* pistol Nebrlck Jumped
away in th* lead, closely followed by Fhoppard.
The former set a killing pace, and before a
quarter of a mile had been covered Sheppard
began to lose ground. At the half Frank was
at his heels, but Sheppard . then let out a little
and promptly shook off his clubmate. He
found It Impossible to get near Neb rick, how
ever. The Mercury Foot runner entered the
last lap twenty yards In front, and won by i
about the same distance. Frank finished a ,
bad third. Th* Indoor record for the distance
Is 4 minutes 22 seconds, held by Sheppard.
The two-mile Intercollegiate championship
relay race brought out two entries, Dartmouth
and Columbia. Each team was made up of \
four men. Marsh gained fifteen yards for Co
lumbia In th* first relay, his opponent being
Prichord. In th* nut relay Evans picked up
five yards more for the Blue and White at the
expense of Hetherlngton. The third relay prac
tically decided the race when Shipley, of Dart
mouth, ran away from Sanders, and not only
regained the lost ground, but earned a lead of
twenty yards for his team. In the last relay
Zink. for Columbia, could not gain on Jennings.
of Dartmouth, and finished about thirty yards
back. Dartmouth's time was 3 minutes 9 2-3
seconds. . , „
The one-mils Intercollegiate championship
brought out two teams. University of Pennsyl
vania find Fordham. On the first relay Whit
man, of Pennsylvania, gained fully twenty yards
on his man. an advantage which was main
tained In the next two relays. This made the
last section a mere romp for Taylor. Pennsyl
vania's remarkable Negro runner, and the lons
striding champion won as he pleased. ,
In the special one-mile relay race between
Brown and Wesleyan the former won handily. ;
The race remained in doubt until the last pair j
started, but then Prout, of Brown, opened up a j
bis rap on McCormack.
Ellery Clark, of th» Boston Athletic Associa- j
tion, the former Rll-round champion, made his
first appearance In local games since last winter !
and did well, winning th« running high Jump
and finishing third In the shot put. He also had !
a try at the sixty-yard dash handicap, but
failed to qualify.

not disclose the success which had attended their
negotiations, continuing their policy of secrecy
In regard to their machine, but Mr. Belmont is
said to have been favorably Impressed.
Neither man Is wealthy, and both are bending
their efforts to make their invention a commer

has surrounded their work for years. Their ma

As soon as they came to town they met Cort

The brothers w*r* entertained at luncheon y*s

afternoon train back to Ohio. In the morning
it Is said that they met Mr. Belmont at his home
In 34th street and disclosed as much of the se
cret of their Invention as possible, seeking his
backing. Several other wealthy men ar* said
to have been present at the conference.
The Wrights said before they went away that
every piece of their machine was made by dif
ferent workmen, and that no one had erer seen
the parts assembled at close rang* excepting
themselves. Bo careful are they that their secret
shall not become known that no plan of the
