St. Kevin Killed in Steeplechase-
Big Holiday Craved at Sheeps-
Lifid Bay.
AupuFt Be'.mont's Prisclllian won bis sixth
straight race when he galloped home an t-a«»y ••»
ncr before a strong field in the Commonwealth
Handicap at Sheepsh«>ad Bay yesterday. L«ike
James R. Keene's Colin. Prlscilllan is unbeaten,
and racegoers are now looking forward to a meet
ing between the two great year-olds, al- j
though the pror*biiiti**< are against their measur
ing strides. T^n horses -went to the post in the
Commonwealth Handicap, which was framed in
I»A4 M a renewal of the Suburban, and PrUcillian
took up 106 pounds,, and. conceding weight accord-
Ing to the scale to his opponents, won with some
thing In reserve in the good time of 2:06 3-5 for
the mile and a quc.rl»r. considering that the track
yc&e flow if the reFult of a heavy shower at noon.
Miller had the mount on PriFciilian. and he had
to de little more than Sit stilL The sot, of Has
tings—St. Priscilla had speed enough to follow the
pace cinsely for si furlongs under gentle restraint,
aad when Miller gave him his head rounding the
Jar turn he raced by Royal Tourist without appar
ent effort and came away through th*- stretch to
win by as much as his rider pleased. Firestone,
•which met with some interference on the far turn,

decisive struggle whw. straightened out for home
and followed Priscillian to the wire. The others.
including Master Robert. Running Water._ Frank
Gill and Montgomery, could never get witnm
striking distance of the leaders, as the fast t-ariy
pace had killed most of Then- off. Master Robert
kept on running, but Harry Payne Whitney's Royal
Tourist, while tiring badly, had enough left to save
third money.
The race was worth $12,300 to the winner, and
was probaWy the last rich handicap to be decid»»d
In some time, in view of the recent adverse legis
lation at Albany. August Belmont was advised
by cable of the victory of his horse within ten
minutes after the race was run. Jack Joyner,
who trains the colt, was highly elated at the vic
tory, and said that if Priscillian was absolutely
sound b* would consider him one of the greatest
horses in the history of the American turf. Pris
rillian did not go to the post as a two-year-old
because of weak ankles, and they are still under
suspicion, b^ing inmost as big as a boxing glove,
as Jr^nf-r himself says. He had to be driven out
to win his first rarf- at Jamaica this year, but
since then he has done everything asked of him
In euch commanding style that there is no telling
Just how good a horse he i?
Mr. Belmor.t thought efriously of selling him last
fa!! after declaring him out of most of his rich
«T.£agements. but Jack Joyner advised against it.
saying that he would bring little or nothing, and
thnt it vrould be far better to fool along with him
in the hope that his ankles might grow stronger.
Both owner and trainer have no*- been more than
repaid for the time Hal trouble expended on him. jack i
Joyner said yesterday that when asked by Mr. Bel- j
mont to put a value on his horses last winter he
wrote after Priscillian's name "$1,500. but no tell
ing how much if he was sound."
A big half-holiday crowd numbering close to
twenty thousand persons was in attendance, and
this in spite of the fact that the heavy- shower at
1 o'clock led many to stay at home who would I
otherwise have gone down to Sheepshead Bay. It
was the biggest crowd &ln«e the meeting opened,
and indicated clearly, according to a number of
prominent men interested in the sport," that racing
was far from dead even under conditions which
make :t: t hard to wager. The grandstand was com
fortably full, while the lawn in front was black
with persons all afternoon There was some bet
ting of the man to man kind, but hundreds enjoyed
the sport without even trying to get a bet down.
The twelfth running of the Independence Steeple
chase, with an added money value of $5,000. * over
the full course of about two miles and a half, fur
nished enough thrills and excitement to last for
several days. Six horses went to the post, but only
two finished, as the others came to grief during
the running.
The race cost Paul J. Rainey his good jumper St,
Kevin, as the horse broke his neck when he fell
at the second jump from home. Dupee. who had
the mount, got such a bad shaking up that he had
to be carried off in the ambulance, while Huppe,
■ who rode Thistledale, escared fatal injury as by a
miracle when his mount fell at the -last jump and
was carried to the jockey room limp and senseless
on a stretcher. He revived later, and the doctor in
attendance said that he was not seriously Injured. ■
California King and A far fell also, but the boyß ;
were pot hurt and walked back to the stand.
Simon Pure, which was lengths behind his field
for a mile and a half, moved up strongly on the
second turn of the field and- went to the front, ,
closely followed by Thistledale, when Alfar and St.
Kevin failed to take off at the second jump from
home and Ml in a heap. Thistledale appeared to
threaten some danger coming to the last jump, but
he cam*- a bad cropper, which left Simon Pure to
go on and win as he pleased from Economy. Alfar
tad made the early running by a wide margin, but
St. Kevin appeared to be wearing him down, when
both came to grief at the Fame Jump.
Statesman won the twenty-third running of the
Spring Stakes for two-year-olds, after a long, hard
drive with Torbellino. Both horses were tired, and
Statesman won because McCarthy rode a stronger
finish than McCahey. James R. Kfene's Footpad,
the Quoted favorite, did not seem to be able to ex
tend himself in the going, and could not keep with'
striking distance of the pacemakers at any part of
Use Journey.

Capture Two Races in New England
Championship Regatta.
Boston. Macs.. July 4.— The twenty-second annual
championship regatta of the New England
Amateur Rowing Association was held on the
Charles River to-day and furnisned seme inter
esting races, although several of the events were
marred by a heavy fall of rain, and rough waST
prevented fast time. New York oarsmen capture*
two of the four events la which their crews were
entered, the Union- Boat Club and Metropolitan
Boat Club from that city each having a winning
An interesting feature of tiie regatta was the
centipede race. wh:ch was raptured by the Union

a crew from the Riverside Boat Club, of Cam
bridge. The winning crew had a lead of 2 1-2
lengths when they crossed the line.
Joe Gans Knocked Out in Seven-
teenth Round of Battle.
San Francisco. July 4. — Nelson, the "Battling
Dane," came back to-day and knocked out Joe
Gans, his former conqueror and for years the light
weight champion, in the seventeenth round of a
fight that was scheduled to e>> forty-five rounds
It was a terrific battle between the two men and
Nelson had all the better of it. The result was a
hip purprise. Gans having been the favorite in the
betting at odds of 18 to 4. Most of the betting was
on the number of rounds Nelson would last.
Brute strength won for Nelson against the su
perior skill and ring generalship of his veteran
opponent. It seemed Impossible for Gans to worry
the Dane, in spite of the terrific punishment he
managed to inflict at times, and toward the end
of the fight it became evident that Nelson would
be the winner sooner or later.
Gans was battered unmercifully in the sixteenth
round, but he came tip freshened for the seven
teenth. Nelson went at him like a battering ram,
and they wrestled for a moment in a clinch. They
fell through the ropes together as Nelson missed
his footing, and as they came Into the ring again
Nelson landed a vicious blow on the negro's stom
Gam* went .inwn, obviously suffering, and the
referee's hand ewung up and down eight tiifes
before the passing champion rose. He struggled
to his feet, but another body blow sent him down
again, and ten seconds later the thousands who
filled the Celma Athieti" Club roared a greeting
to Nelson, again the lightweight champion of the
world, a title he had held before as the conqueror
of Brltt.
An enormous crowd saw the fight, and hundreds
were unable to get In. as the police stopped the
sale of tickets long before the men entered the
"The best man won. beyond doubt, '' was Gans's
frank admission as he left the ring. "It's the old
Mory of one fight too many. After the third round
I began to feel myself tiring. Old age will tell,
and that is all I have to say."

Title for Lamed and Wrenn.
Hsxckett and Little Lose Middle States Lawn Tennis Cham
pionship After Three Deuce Sets.
William A. learned, the national champion,
paired with George L- Wrenn, jr.. won the Middle
3tates doubles lawn tennis championship yesterday
on the turf courts of the Orange Lawn Tennis
Club, at Mountain Station, N. J. They defeated
Harold H. Hackett and Raymond D. IJttle, the
holders, ln the challenge match, at 7—5, 7—5, B—6.
The most notable feature of the match was the
all-at-sea work of Hack<-tt when playing without
his usual partner, Frederick R Alexander. Little
was never quite ln step with Hacketfs game.
Against the fine volleying and driving of Lamed
nnd Wrenn Little fairly held his own, but at the
critical times ho failed to come to the support of
Hackett with the certain Quickness of Alexander.
That the games touched at deuoe in every set was
due to the splendid efforts of Hackett.
Takes Senior Eight -oared Race in
People's Regatta on Schuylkill.
Philadelphia,' July 4.— Fine sport was furnished
to-day at the annual international people's re
gatta on the Schuylkill River, under the auspices
of the city of Philadelphia. There were thirteen
races on the programme, and the majority re
sulted in close finishes. While Philadelphia car
ried off eight of the ra^es. the honors of the day
belonged to the New York Athletic Club, which
won three firsts. The Malta Boat Club and the
Vesper Boat Club, both of this city, each won
two races.
The big race of the day. that for eight oared
shells, was captured by the New York Athletic
Club. Durando Miller, jr., of New York, won the
senior single snilis. In the junior sin»d p sculls
C. D. Davis, of the Potomac Boat Club. Washing
ton, led by a length and a half up to a hundred
yards from the finish, when he collapsed and had
to be lifted from his shell.
It was the wearing steadiness with which Lamed
and Wrenn bore down on the net and smashed
and volleyed every return that turned the balance
ln their favor. Wrenn was far superior to his
usual form, and his rapid fire cross court shots
were often dazzling. Lamed at times made his
famous drives down the alleys and usually brought
off the point.
Because of the rain the other matches were put
over until to-morrow, when the tournament will
be brought to an end. The summary follows:
Middle States championship doubles 'final round* —

I Newark scored a double victory over Jersey City
yesterday by scores of 3 to 1. The morning garrte
was played In Newark and had to be called at the
end of the seventh inning on account of rain.
The game was interesting and full of snappy field
ing, which prevented the scoring of many run?. .
The second contest was played on the Skeeters*
grounds and the Sailors duplicated their morning
victory. Miller, the visitors' pitcher, could not be
hit, but was generous in allowing men free passes
to first base. Moore, the Yankee recruit, was hit
rather hard, but held the game always in hand
with men on bases. Drake was the star of the
Sailor camp ps he came In with a run after he had
singled and sent two men in later in the fray with
another timely single. More than ten thousand
persons witnessed both contests. The score follows:

Becker, the New York Athletic Club crack dis
tance runner, was practically on scratch, allotting
handicaps as high as 100 yards. Becker ran a
pretty race. and. although he tried his utmost, he
could not get up to the limit men. He finished third,

Triumphs for 'Americans and Ca
nadians in British Championships.
London. July 4 — Th« Amateur Athletic Associa
tion championship games, which were held in th»
Stadium this afternoon, attracted a big crowd be
cause of the International character of the entries.
To a New Yorker and a Canadian fell the honor or
smashing the only British amateur records broken
in the afternoon- F. P. Gill**, of the New York
Athletic Club, threw the hammer from a 7-foot
circle 184 feet 6% Inches, while E. B. Archibald,
a representative of Canada In the Olympic samea.
won th« pole vault with 12 feet.
Gllles's throw 13 l«% Inches better than tile
previous amateur record, which was made by an
other American. J. P: Flanagan, at tie Amatw
Athletic Association sports at Stamford Bridga
in 1900. Gllles's mark was first announced as ."
164 feet 4% Inches, but when the Judges saw it
was a question of th» British amateur record
they ordered a remeasurement, which added a
trifle to the distance.
Dennis Morgan, of the Irish-American Athletic
Club, New York, was second in the hammer throw.
His distance was only 131 feet 3 inch"*
Archibald beat the previous British amateur
pole vault record by three Inches.. He represents
Canada in the forthcoming Olympic games
The track was very heavy because of a thunder
storm last night, and this put an end to the hop«»
of establishing startling track records. Under th»
circumstances the lime made by Robert Kerr. a
Canadian, in the 100 and 22& yard dash. 0:10 and
0:22 2-5, is consigned good.
Lieutenant Halswell,- of the Highland Light In
fantry, was the star performer of the day. how
ever. winning the quarter-mile run by four yards
in 0:48 2-5. Lieutenant Halswell, who 13 entered for
the Olympics, did the quarter In the same time at
Glasgow last Wednesday. The events of to-day
were noticeable for the defeat of nearly all th«
championship holders.
The international character of the entries, no
fewer than eleven nations, including Am»ric ;
represented, gave peculiar importance and interest
to the events of this afternoon, and a large crowd
was In attendance. There were nearly tiire
dred competitors in the various event*— among thera
many men who have entered for the Olyrrif
tests— and this large number made necessary th«
running of many preliminary heats.
The final in the 100-yard dash was won tj Rn- e rt
Kerr by one yard in even time. R. E. Walker, of
South Africa, was second, and J. W. Morton, tha
holder of the championship for the last four years,
was third. This victory was greeted with gr*at
chesting by the Canadian and American spectators.
In putting the weight D*nnis Morgan, of t.i«
Irish-American Athletic Association, won, with a
put of 44 feet 7 inches.

Association Formed for Lawn Tennis
Players Who Use Them. J.
A new national movement has begun in lawn
tennis. Players on the public courts met In this
city last week and formally organized the Public
Parks Lawn Tennis Association of the (MMi
States. Not only will the new association advanca
the interests of thousands of racket wieMers who
make use of the three hundred acres of courta
under the jurisdiction of the Park Department 11
this city, but it will hold championships arvi
tournaments. Prizes will be offered, and a great
revival of interest of the foremost players of tha
country is expected.
As the public courts now stand they are chalked
and lined upon nearly three hundred acres. This
means that more than one thousand courts ar<»
available. One may play upon sprinsry turf or
hard and fast dirt surface, for both styles ara
provided, although not always '.a the' same parks.
The players have heretofore been without organi
zation, and there was no association or g-overn!rt?
body to direct tournaments The enthusiasts »•!•.»
