'Strong Field Named for Carter
Handicap at Aqueduct.
The thud of the galloping thoroughbreds,
which is music to the ears of racing folk, will
be heard at Aqueduct to-morrow, where the
Queens County Jockey Club will formally open
th« racing season of 1907 in the metropolitan
district. The bugle will call the horses to the
post for the first race at 2:30 o'clock, and, rain
or eblne. the lovers of th.' sport will turn out
In numbers. It has seemed a lons time since
tli<» curtain was rung down at the same track
five months ago. Judging by the entries for the
\'arlous races announced yesterday it will be a
Sitting opening to a season which is particularly
bright with promise for high class racing.
It is not so long ago that the course at Aque
duct was narrow and confined, and the Carter
Handicap. the feature of the opening day. was
a $700 race NV.w all is changed. The club has
been progressive and the track is now one of
the best and safest in the circuit, in which the
Carter Handicap has risen to the dignity of a
$10,000 staHe, for which some of the best horses
in train!];? are pointed. The real opening of
the season used to come when the WestcheFter
Racing Association threw open Its gates, but
the honor now belongs to the Queens County
Jockey Club in fact as well as in name.
The Carter Handicap, for three-year-olds and
upward. Is at seven furlongs, and will be run
me the fourth race to-morrow. Nineteen horses
bave been sent out as probable starters for the
rich prize, and it is possible that one or more
may be aided at the last minute. The field is a
s;ood one and 6uggests a rare treat for the
thousands who will go down to see the race de
cided. It will be the tenth renewal of the iixt
tire. On the roll of winners are such good horses
ays The Manxman. Duke of Middlebunr. Box
Motley, Ethics. Ahumada, Beldame, Ormonde's
Slight and Rosebeu. The record for the race is
1:26. made by Box in 1900. Roseben. which won
last year in a stirring drive with Southern
Cross", ran the distance in 1:26 2-5. With a fast
track to-morrow a new mark is likely.
Of the nineteen horses which are likely to go
to the post to-morrow ten at least can lay claim
to a class, which means so much to the average
racegoer. D. C. Johnson's Roseben and Paul
J. Kamey's entry. De Mund and Heaslip, are
likely to be about equal favorite, around :* to 1. ,
according to a well known layer. Roseben. the
creat weight carrying sprinter, which holds the
Best American records for six furlonss on a
circular iraek, of 1:113-5, and for seven fur-
Jongs, of 1:22, is at top weight, with 135 pounds.
He won the race last year under 129 pounds.
but lightning: rarely strikes twice in the same
place. He will not lack for followers, however.
M he has been working well under the careful
direction at Frank Weir, a clever trainer. He
is reported to have turned five furlongs in 1:01
Si few days ago. which indicates that he is ready.
De Mund. lor which Mr. Ralney paid .V-J.VifK
last year, has had a careful preparation at
JBenning, and the railbirds who have seen him
gallop will bet on him to a man. He has filled
out over winter and is said to be ready for his
best effort. He was timed six furlongs In 1:15
©ver the slow track at Banning a few days ago,
«rhlch speaks for itself. After being more or less
©f a disappointment last year. De Mund won the
United States Hotel Stakes at Saratoga and
ran third in the Futurity, beaten a neck and a
a head by Electioneer and Pope Joan, and then
•won the Flat bush Stakes.
The horses which are most likely to give stir-
King battle to Roseben and De .Mund are Oxford.
Glorifier, Brookdale Nymph. Don Diego, Okenit<\
pretension and Malacca. Juggler. Rye and
Comedienne are being whispered about also on
come good works. The others to all appear
ances are outclassed.
Oxford showed that he was ready by making
a show of his field at Benning on Friday, when
he won. under VjK pounds, in the good time for
one mile of 1:45%. The track was slow. He
was beaten a few days tore by Okenite at a
difference of thirteen pounds actual weight, sad
this must be remembered, as the Belmont colt
•will have ten pound? more in his favor to-mor
row. Don Diego. Okenite's stable companion
also qualified for the Carter by a good perform
ence at Benning; and the chairman of the Jockey
Club holds a strong hand.
Gloriapr, which has been racing well at Neve
Orleans,-, will be ready for a bruising race, and
now th|p he has come back to the form he
showed «iaßjW*jjßj)-year-o!d, he deserves consider
ation, as he has. plenty of class. John J. Rogers,
8 past Tiia'PtCT TTi getting a horse ready to win
at the first" asfctr.g. has prepared Harry Payn«
Whitney's Brook dale Xymph, a speedy mare, in
the South. While little is known of her condi
tion, she wil! hear watching if she goes to the
post. Mai ■• ■ winner of the First Benning
Spring Ilanrtic-. .-, is in with a feather on his
back, but on last year's form he cannot be con
eldered in the same cla«s with De Mund. Pre
tension has been raced into condition at Hot
Springs, and has an outside chance, as from, a
handicap stani^iirit he is in particularly well.
The rest of the programme to-morrow Is of
m. kind to insure good sport. No less than eighty
live horses have been entered in the six races,
which Indicates that there are plenty of horses
t«ady to go to the post in spite of the late

BilUe Hibbs Make* Shore of Jubilee
for Jesse Broun Cup.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune!
Washington, April 13.— J. W. Colt's Rose of
Dawn, well handled by little Xottor, won the
Second Penning Spring Handicap at the Ben
ning racetrack to-day. She came from behind
with a well-timed rush, and, catching Lord
Boanerges and GraziaUo in the last sixteenth,
won driving by three part 6of a length. BilHe
Hibbs made a runaway race for the Jesse Brown
Cup. while Essex won the Spring Hunter
It was the last day of the spring meeting of
the Washington Jockey Club, and in spite of the
dull, threatening weather some five thousand
persons made the Journey to the track. A par
ticularly good card had been provided, and the
sport was even better than Indicate*!, so that
many expressions of regret were heard when the
last race was run and the crowd filed out.
Miller rode one winner out of three mounts, and
headed the list of winning jockeys for the meet
ing with fifteen victories to his credit.
The Second Benning Spring Handicap, at
seven furlongs, was run as the third race, and
ten horses went to the post. Lord Boanerges
was the receding favorite at 16 to 5, with Rose
of Dawn and The Clown equal second choices at
18 to 5 each. The others ranged in price from
7 to 1 Slickaway to 30 to 1 Cederstrome. Rose
of Dawn, which was in well with only ninety
four pounds, was played for a killing, and
backed from 8 to 1 to 18 to 5. Judging from
the shout that went up when she came rushing
down to the wire not a few profited by her vic
tory. Graziallo made the early running, with
Lord Boanerges and Slickaway within easy
striking distance, and Rose <■:" Dawn back In
sixth place under gentle restraint. There was a,
general closing at the last furlong pole, and
Graxiallo dropped back, beaten, under pressure.
Lord Boanerges then took command, but he
could not withstand Rose of Dawn's determined
challenge, and the latter won going away in a I
hard drive. Slickaway beat Graziallo a length
for third money.
Billie Hibbs proved conclusively that he is the
best two-year-old developed at the meeting, by
winning the Jesse Brown Cup. He- was tho
favorite at 4 to 5, although Fred Llttlefleld's
Jubilee was quite as heavily played at 7 to 5.
Miller broke Billie Hibbs In front, and the
Fatherless colt opened up a gap of three lengths
in the first quarter, and just galloped along the
rest of the way, to win easily by four lengths.
Jubilee tried to run him down, but to no avail,
and he had to be content with second money
six lengths before Trey of Spades.
The hunting set enjoyed a feast, as there were
two steeplechases on the programme. D. K.
Kerr's Essex was eased up all through the
stretch, to beat Lysistrata half a length in the
Spring Hunters' Steeplechase. Mr. Taylor
handled the winner to good advantage, while
Jay O'Brien, the young New York horseman
who won the Amateur Cup on Thursday, again
showed his skill as a jockey by a good ride on
Commodore Fontaine, the even money favor
ite, made the running In the second steeplechase
to the last jump, when Dr. Keith, which had
always been well up, came on and won handily
by a length and a half. Rockstorm and Flylnjf
Virginian were beaten off.
The other winners were Belle of Jessamine,
which won the first race, under Radtke's vigor
ous finish, and Bulwark, which got up in time
to beat Sally K. a head in the last race. The
latter, which has been trying vainly to get out
of the maiden class, showed decided improve
ment, but just failed to last the distance.

Annapolis Crew to Ron- at Pough
keepne This Year.
[From Tho Trtbunp Bureau.]
Washington, April 13. -The midshipmen of
the Naval Academy "ill row in th« inter
collegiate regatta at Poughkeepsie on June
20. where they will meet crews from Cor
nell, Columbia, Syracuse, Pennsylvania, George
town and Wisconsin. This will be the first
timo that tho midshipmen have taken part
in the big regattn, the innovation hclng due to
the Secretary of th* Navy, who believes it will
result in good to have the students at. the Naval
Academy come into contact with the.s<> other
colleges on the water.
etary Metcalf is an enthusiastic champion
of outdoor sports, and he gave his consent to
day. When it was suggested to him that It
mipht be \\<-n to permit the middles to try for
honors ;it the intercollegiate regatta he accepted
the suggestion with favor, promising to look Into
the matter with :i view to ascertaining whether
or not it would be practicable. He found that
there appeared to be nothing against the sug
gestion except that there was no precedent fur
it, and that he did not hold to h<» a sufficiently
good reason to deny the request.
The middies ar« anxious to try conclusions
with the college men, and the Secretary be
lieves such ; ntest will prove i>c!i>'»\,-!al to
the spirit of the Naval Academy. The gradua
tion exercises at Atmapolis will bo about con
cluded by .iiu;" -'■•. so that the race will not In
terfere with the, work of the men.
Tho Naval Academy has developed a strong
crew in the last few years, and only last Satur
day defeated Georgetown in a dual race. i.a*t

the doubles event. Miss Sears and Mr. Lamed
were the first to take the engirt, and they de
feated Miss Jean Reid, daughter of Ambassador
Reid, and Theodore Roosevelt Pell after three
hard fought sets. The score was 3—6.3 — 6. — 1 and
1 love. In the other match. Miss Fenno and
Mr. Wrena won In straight sets from Miss
Phyllis Green and Edgar W. Leonard, the Har
vard ex-champlcn. at 6—46 — 4 and 6—4.6 — 4.
Despite the overcast and cloudy afternoon the
light was excellent on the court. A large gal
lery was present, and among the most enthusi
astic were Mrs. Lorilliard Spencer, jr.. Mr. and
Mrs. Frank H. Gould, Mrs. R. V. L. Pruyn. Miss
Cooper, Miss Irwln, Mrs. Kr.app, Miss W.
Moran, Mr. and Mr*. W. F. Hadilen. Mrs. James
Brown, Mr. and Mrs. Raymond D. Little and
Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt Pell.
Miss Reid and Mr. Pell played a dashing game
at the net In the first set of their match. They
led throughout this set and won after nino
games. Then Mr. Lamed began to drive for
passes from deep court, while Miss Sears, too,
■cored the aces by volleyed returns from close
to the net. Th" Boston girl and the ex-cham
pion fairly romped through this set. They de-
VOted considerable attention to Miss Reid. Th«
latter pluckily endeavored to play her part on
h«»r si.!*- of th* net. She frequently made telling
shots for clean passes." On the whole. Miss
Scan nml Mr. Lamed relatively outclassed the
opposing pair, and, after taking the second set
at 6 — l, they made a runaway finish to the
H<>th Ml-ss Sears and Mr. I.arned hit the ball
with powerful strokes in the deciding set. They
swept tho opposing pair before them apparently
without effort, winning by a love score.
The Philadelphia girl. Miss Phyllis Green,
provided the features ■ l the second game. She
hounred around th*» court and kept the ball
moving !it a lively pace. ller smashes and cross
court shots were cleverly made, and she fre
quently embarrassed Mr. Wrens by catching
him <tr his guard nnd scoring the ace by smash-
Ing the ball directly at his feet. The playing of
Miss Fenno an<l Mr. Wrenn had the quality of
bularco ami steadiness about it that pinched
out the close games. As It was, the scoring was
c!o«^ unrt was finally decided In straight sets.

Clubs Will Have Honorary Patrons of Lawn
Tennis Championships.
Th* F.r.B'.ish Custom of having honorary patrons
an.l ofllcers for th« lawn tennis championships is
to be followed this season in one or two of the
moro Important tournaments in this city. It may
find Its first trial In the holding of the New York
State championship by the Mew York Athletic
Club. As President Roosevelt Is a son of the Em
pire State nnd also a member of the New York
Athletic Club. It Is probable in this connection
that he will be asked to be the chief patron of the
tournament, as he Is an ardent lover of the game
Governor Charles K. Hughes baa also been men
tioned, and President Eliot of Harvard In connec
tion with the holding of the metropolitan cham
pionship by the Wtst Side l*i\vn Tennis Club
The prospect of holding several of the more Im
portant championships under the patronage of
those Interested In the development of the game, it
Is believed, will create a marked stimulus In this
country. The remarkable rise and development of
the game- in England have been due In no small
part to the Interest royalty has taken in lawn
tennis. In Germany Emperor William and the
crown prince have set their seal of approval
upon it.
Schooners Corinthian, Tammany and An
dromeda Will Compete.
The committee having charge of the Bermuda
yacht race for tho Mnler Cup has received the entry
of three schooners— the Dervish. Commodore Morss
of the Corinthian Yacht Club of Marblehead; the
Tammany, Vice-Commodore \V. C. Towen of the
Brooklyn Yacht Club, and the Andromeda E \v
Dlxon, of th « N. w York Yacht Club. The Tam
many was formerly the Agatha, designed by F. I>.
Ijiwley in 1902. She rates under the ocean rule as
74 feet. The Andromeda was designed by E. Bur
gess and was built at Marblehead in ISSB. She rates
nt 79 feet, and will have to allow th*> Tammany
3 hours and 45 minutes; the Dervish will allow tho
Andromeda 4 hours nnd 30 minutes, and the Tam
many 8 hours and 15 minutes. This should make a
close finish between these schooners if all three are
hard Balled and well navigated.
The boat building from the plans of Smith &
Ferris at City Island to race to Bermuda for the
Bennett Cup is well along, and will be launched and
have her trial about May 20. She is fitted with a
Craig four-cylinder engine of 60 horsepower. This
boat has not yet been named. She will carry a
crew of eight, three in the engine room, on*, cook
and four on deck, under command of Thomas Flem
ing Day. the skipper of the Tamerlane In last
year's contest. The boat built at Marblehead for
Peter Shields by Steams * McKay la entered for
the Motor Boat Club rac* to Bermuda. She Is
fitted with a 25-horsepower Standard engine She
will be skippered by Mr. Steams and carry a crew
of eight.

"Th« old saying that a man is like a watch—
ways judged by his works— also holds good when
applied to automobiles." said Mr. Perlman. of the
Welch Car Company, the other day. "Automobiles
may look very much alike In outside splendor an t
finish, they may be very handsome and have the
most graceful lines.* they may be luxurious and
comfortable, they may have wonderful speed, too.
on the flat, smooth road, but unless they possess
an engine that has real horsepower, that gives the
car climbing facilities such as make molehills out
of mountains, the external appearances count for
nothing. The Welch engine Is the most important
feature of the car. and we see no reason to change
Its construction in any particular."
la advocating that the Glldden tour contestants
•tart out with the bonnets of their cars sealed
down, an Interesting statement is made by James
Joyce, the general manager of the American Loco
motive Automobile Company, which makes the
Berllet. He says that he does not consider any
thing an engine which cannot run fifty thousand
or sixty thousand miles without giving any trouble.
An Interesting simile was employed recently by a
salesman in answer to a man who asked wherein
one car could be worth several thousand dollars
more than another. The reply of F*. M. Hoblitt.
salesman for the Berltet car. was that r.ne learns
the value of a car In service as he does in wear

Its color and shape and look new until after three
