Many Interesting Exhibits on Hand
from Field and Stream.
*■ Madison Square Garden wns true to its name
_ last night, and proved a real garden. The oeca
* ■lon was the opening .if the fourteenth annual
eportrman's show, ar.d a big crowd was in at
* tendance. The color scheme of the show is a
restful dark green. More than eighteen thou
' sand flr, spruce, hemlock :; nd pine trees were
used todecorate the trails and archea. The upper
balcony is bidden by a heavy frieze of fir trees.
The arches cf the amphitheatre are covered
with them, and the front of the lower balcony
Js covered with dark green cloth to correspond.
The odor r.f the woods and its healthy ozone is
■ almost overpowering.
To th© ripht and left of the mala entrance are
located the exhibits from Maine. On the left
t hand side of the balcony are mounted on a back
"" ground cf green with a dark blue skyline border,
' specimens of taxidern:y — moose heads, deer
heads and caribou. On the right is a log cabin
from Washington County, Me. The round spruce
logs, with the bark on. were cut in January.
The cabin is twelve by sixteen feet, and eleven
feet high, having two doors and four windows in
it, with an upper loft below the peaked roof for
•leeplr.s quarters.
The whole centre d the Garden is completely
filled by the largest lake ever constructed in
doors. It is 3 feet deep. 73 feet wide, 250 feet
. ions, and holds €00,000 gallons of water. In the
centre of the lake is an island with a pool 200
feet long for th© fly casting contests. The pool.
like the lake, Is the biggest one ever built in
doors.' Tha rest of the island will be used for
Che gymnastic sports of the Young Men's Chris
| tian Association branches, in which over one
thousand men will compete.
The Fourth avenue end of the Garden shows
a perspective skyline in light blue, fringed vita
a forest of evergreen trees. The Long Island
exhibit Is there In charge of Captain "B1U"
Graham. A modest ehack which is used on
Ch» ssc<l> dunes on the south side of Long Island
occupies one corner of the exhibit, and here A.
B. Davis, the well known guide from Wading
River, chows Lions Island furs and hundreds of
live pickerel, caught by hook and Una yester
day morning through holes chopped in the ice.
The motor scooter, which originated on Long
Island. Is &a amphibious one, and, according to
~ Captain "Bill,** is equally at homo on land, on
water, on Ice and In tha air, and is faster than
the wind. Scooters are usually rough, uncouth
looking things, but the cue on exhibit is painted
white and named Mildred. This particular ex- \
hibit was secured with great difficulty, becauso
it is the champion of its class among five hun
dred scooters in daily use on Great South Bay.
It is one of the features of the exhibit, if not
of the whole show.
, The oldtime favorite of previous shows, the
m electric launch, "Buster Brown," is again in
• commission. ferrying the little folks around the
lake through the llect of canoes and roivboats.
The lake itself is not bridged this year, ad-
I mission to the island being through a forest
Srcea tunnel in the basement.
Along the . shores .of the lake is a complete
boys' canjp, with an A-shaped tent. The New
Ilrunswick exhibit is located ii.iong"&ldo of this.
This exhibit, however, is not complete as yet.
having been delayed In transit. The New
i»runswick g~uides are husky fellows.
An Interesting exhibit from New Preston,
Conn., shows a small-mouth black bas3 hatchery
in full operation. Alongside of It is the pictur
esque Adirondack caiwp. and here a. large party
• of guides have erected a log cabin, a shelter
■ camp and a sumsitr bouse in true rustic style.
Ahuost - very hunting district in the country
via represented with an exhibit, and the Garden
is lilled with guides, hunters, trappers and llefcji
ermen, all of whom have stories to tell.

Well Backed Horses Win Over
Muddy Track at Fair Grounds.
New Orleans, March I.— A driving rain, which ob
scured the backstretch part of the time., a howling
wind and a muddy track confined the attendance
to the "regulars" at the Fair Grounds to-day. The
horses ran fairly, true to form, however, although
the sport was hardly enlivening.
Bchroeder's Midway revelled In the mud in the
first race and won galloping by ten lengths. Gold
en Wave came from far back in the stretch and
earned the pUxre.
Qretnae und Elvira M. opened equal favorites in
the second race at a to 2. but the former was
plunged on and backed to 8 to 3. while the latter
went begging and drifted back to £ to 1. When it
came to racing Elvira M. quickly went to the front
ar.d won cleverly, while Oremse, from a bad begin
ning, had to be content with third money.
Sir Toddington outclassed his Held In the third

Routes Suggested for the Glidden
Tour— Motor School
As a bone of contention the Glidden tour appears
to be just as meaty as ever, and the sugijesticris
concerning it are becoming ,of Infinite variety.
The executive committee of the American Auto
mobile Association has recommended that th* run
start from Chicago and go to Washington, D.» C.
A number of active Chicago motorists are opposed
to this. They do not v.ant the run to start from
the Illinois metropolis, but to start from New York
and finish at Chicago. This suits ■ number of
New Yorkers and many other Easterners, who say
that the run should cither start or finish there.
There is a growing sentiment, however, of
lengthening the tour, and If this is done a route
could be selected thai would please every one.
One good suggestion comes from \v. W. Burke, of
New York, who proposes a start from New York
and go by way of the lake cities to Chicago, thence
to Pittsburg, and back to Now York by way of
Harrisburg and Philadelphia. At the tim«« of the
New York show Philip B. Pthin, the Ptttsburg en
thusiast, suggested a route starting from New
York, going to Cleveland, then to Ptttsburg and
by way of Chambersburg to Washington thence
l.ii. kto New York. Th! route, if modified 'so as to
go to Chicago before turn east gain would
have the virtue of :•■ Ing a compromise that would
touch nil the points suggested by all the other
route makers and yet be non« too ion • for a
thoroughgoing contest. It will l*> hard to Dlease
the majority except by a long run.
Sixty-one automobiles were imported last month
their total valuation being 5189.601 v.. as against
fifty-live cars, valued at 888,961 S3. for February
1506, and forty-five cars, valued at $1G1,367 6&t for
February. ISOS. This shows a slight Increase, but
when the two months. January and February are
taken for each of toe three years a derided de
crease is shown thia year from. last. During the
two months In 19*3 U3 can cam.' In. valued at
$«C,3C0«3. while the figures for UOB were 191 cars
and IBKLMBB7, and for 1907 only 173 ears and sSES..
16131. The appraiser's statement contains no Com
ment on -these figures, but they would certainly
seem to give some Indication of the recent develon
raent of the American automobile industry.
The adoption of the six cylinder engine for motor
boats Is a further step toward the vindication of
this type of motor. When it la employed In high
grade product it appears to be the exact balance of
power. Every experienced man who has handled a
six cylinder car concedes that ii is the correct
halting place, four cylinders furnishing impulses
too Infrequent and eight cylinders being nr<me t..
It Is not difficult to understand why automobile
In 'a sovereign remedy for brain fug and nervous
Ills. a man cannot tool a big car atonic the road
properly and worry about business affairs at the
sarat) time.
The automobile school of tho "West Side Young
Men's Christian Association, which is run under
tho general supervision of an advisory committee,
of which Dave 11. Morrl\ Wlnthrep E. Scarritt
and A. K. Shuttuck. representing the Automobile
Club of America, and Augustus Post, represent
ing the American Automobile Association, ur<*
members, will start its spring term on March C.
Since the school was started, in i:«>l. under the
patronage and advice of the Automobile club of

Columbia Swimmers Win Clean Cut
Victory in Tank.
Columbia's swimming team won a clean-cut vic
tory over Harvard last night in a dual meet in the
local gymnasium, winning by a score of 29 points
to 24. Tho Blue and White water polo team was
also successful, winning over the Crimson by a
score of 1 to 0.
Tho feature of the evening was a match race be
twoen C. M. Daniels and L. S. Crane, of the New
York Athletic Club, for two hundred feet. Daniels
proved an easy winner. Ho took the load at the
start, end. swimming with an easy crawl stroke,
added to it slightly over the first hundred feet. On
the return Journey he changed to the trudseoa
stroke, with which he has inado his lens distant
records, and finished a pood ten feet in the lead.
Crane used the crawl stroke all the way Daniels
lowered the record of the Columbia tank by 2 2-3
seconds. his time for the distance being 37 1-5 sec
onds. The old record was held by C. D. l.'rabertach.
Later Da;. swam two lengths of tho tank to give
an exhibition of his trudseon stroke. He did not
extend himself, and no time was taken.
In the water polo game Columbia clearly demon
strated her superiority ov. r Harvard, in spite of
the small score. Only once did Harvard have even
SO much as a chanca to score. Columbia began of
fensive work Immediately after the whlstlo blew,
when Brown received th© ball and started for the
Harvard goal. There was a brie? scrimmage, ar.d
tho ball came out. but Brown got it again and
passed* lt to llolslag, who disappeared, to rise di
rectly in front of the goal, from where it was easy
for him to score.
In the second half Columbia did some bad pass
ing that put the ball in tho hands of her opponents
several times. Palliser and Bassstt were rocks at
defence, however, and, despite the strenuous efforts
of the Harvard forwards, they could not get past
these men. Near the end of the half Halpta scored
again for Columbia, but because of a foul the goal
was r.ot counted.
The plunge for distance was an Interesting con
test. After three trials Matz. of Columbia, and
Hardy, of Harvard, were tied for first place at
45 feet. On his last plunge Foutz. of Columbia,
went 47 feet 3 laches.
The relay race furnished a hard struggle, and
was finally won by Columbia. Arkush. of the
Momir.gside team. was slow in starting:, giving his
opponent. Howe, a lead of two yards, which tho
Harvard man increased to four yards by the end of
200 feet. MacKonzie took up the swlmrair; for
Columbia, and gained on Quintan, reducing his
lead by half. The next relay, between Matt, of
Columbia, and Farley, of Harvard, was a hard
tight, with tho advantage slightly in favor of the
Columbia man. who was on even terms with bis
opponent when they finished. McKlnlay then took
up the swimming for Columbia and gained foot by
foot on Wlthington. the last Harvard man, winning
the race by about three yards and scoring eight
points for Columbia.
McKtelay took first place In the 100-yard swim.

tween the two sections of the southern tube having
been made yesterday afternoon. It was expected
that the two gangs would meet about 2 o'clock
yesterday afternoon. So certain were the contrac
