Chicago, June 15.— The New York Yankees were
almost helpless to-day before the masterly pitch
ing: of "White and lost the third straight game of
the series with Chicago by a score of 2 to 1. It was
the twelfth straight victory for the White Sox.
Chesbro pitched almost as good a game as White,
but the men behind him could not hit the ball when
hits were badly needed. New York scored first in
the opening Inning. Xiles got a lucky double, and
outs by Hemphill and Keeler enabled him to finish
the trip to the home plate.
Chicago could do nothing with Chesbro except in
the fifth inning. Then White singled and scored on
Dougherty"s triple. The former Yankee outfielder
came home on a double steal. Only twenty-nine
men faced White during the game.

If it had rained on Sunday instead of yesterday
the Giants might have had a better percentage
average this morning. When three and one-half
innings had been played in the first game of a
dcuble header with Cincinnati at the Polo Grounds
yesterday the score was 7 to 3 In favor of the
Giants. The field was so slippery and the ball so
wet that It was almost impossible to play, but in
that time the home team showed they are a good
bet In heavy going, t
With the rain falling in torrents, the Giants
knocked the ball all over the pond In the third in
ning, scoring five runs. Each team took a turn in
trying to delay the game, the Giants being the of
fenders up to the end of the third inning and the
Reds holding back in the beginning of the first half
of the fourth.
Tale and Princeton will battle for the college
championship at the Polo Grounds this afternoon,
fo that no league contest will be held. A double
header Ip on the bill for to-morrow.
After the game yesterday one of the private de
tectives handled a spectator rather roughly and Me
Graw stepped in. He ruffled up the detective con
siderably, and when another "sleuth" came to the
scene, Joe McGinnlty took a hand. The tussle
didn't last long, but It was hot and furious while It
did. (

Pennsylvania Crews at Pottghkeepsie
— Wisconsin on Water.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Poughkeepsle, N. V.. June 15— Pennsylvania's
squad of twenty-six oarsmen arrived at Highland
late this afternoon and took up their quarters In
the boathouse which was left by Columbia yester
day, when the New Yorker? moved up to their
new barge. Ellis "Ward, the Quaker coach, said
that his men were all in good condition, but on
account of the late hour of their arrival he did
not send them out for a row. The Quakers spent
the evening in rigging their shells and preparing
for an early spin to-morrow morning.
Ward will boat his crews in this way:
'Varsity eight— Deerlng. bow: J. Townsend. No. 2;
Rogers, No. 3; Hendrie, No. 4; Shoemaker, No. 5;
Dray ton. No 6; Dean, No. 7; Ennlg (captain),

Freshman eight— Thompson, bow; Huhn. No. 2;
Shaffer. No. 3; Howard. No. 4; Smith, No. 6; Fox.
No. 6: Bennett. No. 7; Clutas, stroke; Rosengarten,
Cornell and Columbia were the only crews to go
out this morning, as the "Wisconsin men. who got
In on Sunday, were busy rigging their shells.
Cornell's 'varsity and freshman eights rowed up
and down the bay below their quarters at High
land at a low stroke, while Rice had all the
Columbia boats out for a long pull down stream.
Wisconsin was the first crew on the water In the
afternoon, the other coaches evidently waiting for
the sea, which the driving rainstorm had kicked
up to die down. The Badgers' 'varsity combina
tion rowed down past the Cornell quarters, but the
freshmen were unable to go out. as their shell,
which was badly damaged before they cam- East,
has not vet been repaired. Ten Eyck was unable,
to follow the men. as his launch was out of order.
The Ithacans took the water about & o'clock and
paddled down the river with the tide almost to
Milton Landing.
Jim Rice brought his three eights down from the
Icehouse Dock, where the barge, is moored, to
the Bridge, where they turned and rowed up
stream against the wind and tide at fair speed.
The "varsity eight swung along with a long, slow
stroke and held the freshmen, who were rowing
at a much higher stroke, well In hand. Syracuse
is' due to arrive her- to-morrow morning, and the
coring of this crew will complete the number
entered in the regatta.
Light Work for the Yale and Har

Gales Ferry- Conn.. June 15-Owing to rough
water and a high wind the Tal- crews did not go
out on the water this morning, but the men took a
short run. The wind died d-wn about 3 o clock
this afternoon, and the 'varsity and freshman
crews rowed up stream for three miles ar.d return.
On the way back the 'varsity easily distanced the
frephmen. The four-oared crews made no attempt
at speed, but mwed up stream for about two mi lea.
Bob Cook, the famous coach, saw the crews to
day for the first time this season, and seemed to be
Impressed with the good work of the 'varsity eight.

Although the government has issued the strictest
Injunctions to keep secret details of the construc
tion or the airship, the following are the approxi
mate dimensions: length. 443 feet: diameter, about
4r> feet. The balloon is fitted with two Independent
platforms, each carrying a motor capable of devel
oping 140 horsepower. These, are extremely light,
weighing only 4.4 pounds for each horsepower. In
case one of these motors breaks down, the airship
can continue, but at reduced speed.
It if hoped to attain with full power a speed of
forty-six and one-half miles an hour, compared with
a maximum of thirty-one miles an hour hitherto
attained. The radius of action is estimated at 1,430
miles. ' 1 '*»f» ( l«
Sufficient fuel will be carried to enable the airship
to remain in the air 10 hours, sleeping accommoda
tions being provided for the crew. An apparatus
has been installed for the dispatch and receipt of
wireless telegraphic messages.
One of the conditions of the contract of construc
tion is the ability of the airship to rr.anceuvre at an
altitude of 4.M0 feet. The lifting capacity of the air
ship 1p stated to be more than Ftxteen tons, and it
will carry two tons of ballast. Inflating gas is
distributed among sixteen separate interior com
partments, which are contained within the outer
rigid envelope of aluminum.

Police Ordered to Break Up A*§
Gathering of Three or More.
There was no change in *he order of things s<
far s« betting was concerned at the Gravesend
racetrack yesterday, and the lid was screwed
down as tight as It was on Friday, when the new
anti-gambling laws went Into effect. Two
dred policemen under Inspector O'Brien and flftv
detectl\ r es in plain clothes stood about from the
paddock to the so-called betting ring, but had lit
tle or nothing to do. as the crowd was an orderly
one and acepted the situation as found.
In spite of the teeming rain and the edict against
betting between 3.500 and 4.000 persons were in at
tendance, to the surprise of even the most opti
mistic and to the confounding of those who be
lieved In the theory that racing without betting
would quickly die a natural death. They amused
themselves by clapping their hands as the horses
paraded to the post, by watching" the racing with
every show of Interest and by cheering the win
ners as If It were quire the natural thing to do.
The cheering and applause were not altogether
spontaneous, but the crowd was quick to follow
the lead, and even J. L. Hall, patrol Judge, as he^
drove by the stand "got a hand," which he grace
fully acknowledged
Inspector O'Brien promulgated an order early In
the afternoon to the effect that where three or
more men were gathered together the police should
Interfere and force them to move on. particularly
if there was any indication of writing on a pro
gramme or of discussing a bet. This led to a
rather amusing Incident between the running of
the third and fourth races.
Assistant District Attom«v Elde' was standing
1n the one-time betting ring, which was almo?t
deserted except for some fifty policemen and a
few of the regulars who had not been able to get
over the habit of going t:> that particular plare
between races. Mr. Elder was approached by two
newspaper men and a small crowd gathered to
hear what was said.
A lieutenant of police quick'y hurried up and.
taking one of th« newspaper m*n by the arm. said,
brusquely, "Move on, there, if you don't want to *•»
To wht-h the newspaper mnn meek-- rep'.i^d.
"Why, can't I even stop and talk with the Assist
ant District Attorney of Kings rounry"'
The policeman had his orders and promptly re
plied, "No, you can't ta-k to anybody standing still."
At which Mr. Elder interfered and the policeman
walked away.
By this time, a bigger rrowd had gathered, and
while Mr. Elder continued the interview two in
spectors crowded their tvay through and stood one
at each elbow, as if fearing that somenodv would
do bodily harm to the man whose construction of
the law has made it Impossible even to make a
mouth bet, unless under cover of the greatest
In speaKing of the three test cases proposed by
those Interested in racing Mr. EJder said:
"I am absolutely opposed to a test cas*. as no
end could be served by an arrest and prosecution
under a suspension of sentence thar could not be
accomplished by a bona fide arrest and pseaeentlaa.
There are now fourteen cases pending for a'.m
every conceivable offence under the am iaw Bad
there will be a hearing on these on Jur.» :: whi -h
should accomplish the purpose of a tesr case."
"When asked If it would not be a good thing to
settle the present uncertainty as to what consti
tuted a violation of the law as quickly as possible,
he said: "I believe so, and that will be done, in
all probability."
Asked whether he had expressed himself as op
posed to the cases being carried before any par
ticular judge, he replied: "No. I have simply said,
and now reiterate, that I am opposed to the cases
going before any Justice who may be in sympa
thy with the racing Interests, as I do not care to
have my arguments prejudiced before being heard."
Mr. Elder said that it was almost impossible to
enforce any anti-gambling law on account of the
difficulty of getting evidence, but he added, rathe*
slyly: "Policy and bucket shops are largely a thing
of the past, and look at this betting ring. It
doesn't look as If the Agnew-Hart law is being
Mr. Elder explained that two men might make a
verbal bet with each other, but the man who laid
the price was breaking the law, whereas the other
was not. This was a facer for those, who deal in
prices, an It appeared to them to mean that when
a bet was made at even money neither tU» w«i
guilty, whereas the man who laid : wi : would
have to suffer the penalty, while the man who ac
cepted the short end went scot free Mr. Elder
also explained that the marking of the prices on a
programme constituted a violation of the law
under his interpretation, and for that reason, if
for no other, no prices were openly exhibited yes
P. J. Dwyer. president of th» Brooklyn Jockey
Club, repeated the statement he made or. Satur
day that he was more than anxious that the law
Bhould be upheld to the letter, and that the pottra
were at liberty to do what they saw fit uader
their construction of the new statute urr ;
time as the courts had settled the question. He ex
pressed himself as surprised but pleased -with the
attendance, yesterday, and added that h" had F<"n
days when there were fewer persons there, even
under normal conditions.
No speclai trains were run from th" Broofcivn
Bridge to the track yesterday, and those who went
down had to be. satisfied with the regi:ar local
service.. Two or three specials were run ba^k. how
ever, when the racing was over.
Among those who were complainine yefltnrdaaF
over the new order of things wer<» the ■lnjliu.M
who sell early racing editions of th» various after
noon papers. One youngster at the entrant of
the bridge remarked sadly: "Say. boss, T had to
cut off three hundred papers this morning ."

ended last night before Coroner Acritelli and a
Jury el twelve. The Jury's verdict censured the

Tenement House Department and recommended
action by the District Attorney.
Assistant Corporation Counsel John P. O'Brten.
who has charge of the tenement house bureau, la
telling the Jury of the problems confronting th«
Tenement House Department declared that there
were fifty thousand cases of violation under con
sideration now. and that because of lack of funds
to employ sufficient help the department had found
Itself almost unable to cope with the situation.
The Jury found that "hay and straw were kept
in the cellar of the said premises at No. 470 Pearl
street in direct violation of the tenement house
act; that the Tenement House Department duly
notified the owner, directly and through, one Tim
othy J. Murray at various times prior to the date,
