Automobiling Baseball & Racing <& Ice Yachting <£ Skating <£ Billiards <£ Other Sport s RUSH TO SEE AUTOS BIG CROWD OUT FOR GARDEX SHOW. Women Show Keen Knowledge of the Working Parts of tkt Cars. The automobile show opened it? week of actual business in Madison Square Garden yrsierdfiy with a rush and a boom presag 1"C great results before the close of the. exhibition. It has been said in the past that the automobile boom 'was here, but the indications now are. that th«» boom has not yet reached its height, and is destined to lset for several years to come. The at tendance during the day and especially last •veninp was remarkable, there never be ing a time when the Garden was not crowded with those who came to see and inspect. *"v > The morning hours were utilized by pro nv?<~tiv* purchasers in closely examining • M inspecting the many different models and design?, and as a rule they exhibited m teen knowledge of motor construction. In* information they sought was indicative to an unusual degree of their knowledge. This is in striking contrast to the- condi tion? that existed a few years ago, and *h«t»s that the public is auto wit* to a •degree. There is not a thipg lacking in the show ■which would make for the. comfort of the visitor. The number of boxes and seats • round the main floor, together with those in the galleries above, are decidedly ap preciated. M. I* Downs, secretary of the ' show committee, has been considerate of the interest of the public, which is shown •in many ways. At various intervals there are United States postage stamp vending •machines. There are two styles of these machine*. On the first floor mails are reg ularly collected and stamps sold at face j value.. On th» second floor there are two • machines selling Hudson-Fulton commemo rative stamps, unperforated. Each exhibit lis supplied with a telephone, while tele : rhone booths are at both front and rear of the Garden, so that one can readily «Mnmußic»te with the outside world. Oclonel George Pope, chairman of the show committee, expressed himself particu larly well fatisfied with the exhibit. He •Mid, in talking of the cars: "There is an entire absence of what is £*n*ra'ly termed 'freaks, everything being what might be considered standard quality. mad© to sell and last and not in the least experimental. It looks to me as though the makers had put every effort into the refinements and developments. It would hardly be proper for me. as chairman of th«? committee, to express any opinion as to th* way the show is staged, or managed, tut I feel that the exhibit as a whole re flects the greatest credit upon the American manufacturer and proves to the public at larg* that in matters connected with the motor industry the American maker stands second to none." Although situated in the basement, the display of motorcycles is in keeping with that of motor vehicles, and is almost as interesting. The new models displayed are proof that tha motorcycle is not only a ptatavs vehicle, but "has reached the stage where it can be considered as one of busi ness utility. In the main the motors are of «'ne and two cylinders, although one of four cylinders is displayed. In this branch, as in tii* other, the tendency is toward general refinement. Many developments have 'of en made in springs and frogs. The enamel has been Improved, while heavier plating seems to have be*n -jse>! in handlebars. The handle bar control feenif to.be almost universal, while magnetic ignition is more popular than ever, several makers having made this typ« of ignition standard. Increased power is also noticed, while mechanical oilers are more numerous than ever and as an Improvement will be appreciated by those who enjoy this form of travel. The exhibit makes the most complete motor cycle stew ever held in this country, rank |^> :ng favorably with the famous shows of Bit Europe. It furthermore demonstrates in B^r no uncertain manner the rapid develop- merit that has been made in the last few years in motor construction. Jnterm in the show is not confined to m»n, as among- the women present yester « ay morning who left loaded down with auto '•literature" 1 were Mr?. J. Borden Uarriman, Miss Emma Sands, Mrs. Her 1 crt Shipman. Mrs. Oren Root. Miss Laura Livingston, Miss Anita Ingersoll and Miss Muri*l Kelley.

Fred Eames treated New York -lovers of billiards to th© highest type of three cushion carroms last night. He completely distanced Alfredo De Oro. the defending world's champion and holder of the Jordan Lambert emblem, by outplaying him » .V) points to 28 in fifty-nine innings. This re sult in the opening block of their three nights' sessions at the table was a sur prise to the spectators that filled McGraw'e Academy, at 34th street and Broadway, for in the thousands of dollars wagered dur ing the day De Oro held the position of favorite at odds of 10 to 7 and 10 to 6. At all stages Eames. the Denver profes sional, displayed mastery of the balls. Furthermore, his ju-igment as to speed was faultless, despite a jabbing stroke with the cue. De Oro, on the other hand, made in numerable, kisses <n.nd bumps, that told all too plainly that he was not at his best. The challenger won the bank, but, miss ing. left De Oro a set-up for two carroms by natural cushion shots. De Oro repeat ed on his second turn, and then Eames he gan to show his form. At the end of the thirteenth inning the two were even at 8. Eames followed with 4. the last being a clever six-cushion sliot. Three innings later he put together 6, in which he used the reverse english so splendidly as to keep the spectators applauding. His best run was 6 rarroms. gathered in the twen ty-sixth inning, during which he played position so finely as to just flicker the second object ball in completing the count. The most brilliant playing, however, On the part of Eames was from the twenty ninth inning to the thirty-third, his counts in sequence being 2. 1, 3, 2, and 1, which put him in the lead over the champion, 35 to 16. Toward the close De Oro re sorted to safety manoeuvring, and Eames found his work more difficult. ' He was equal to the task, however, as a run of 3 on his forty-third turn demonstrated, dur ing which he played two beautiful follow shots at fclow speed. :~ -J. - '- i-—. '.-.-,: '[ '..' De Oro steadied to his woFk as the two neared the end of the initial block of points. His best run of the night was 4 carroms, but on the whole he was clearly outplayed in execution and technique. The second block of 60 points will be decided to-night. SO BILLIARD BIDS. National Amateur Champion ship Ignored /;?/ Clubs. Amateur billiardists who assembled at the annual meeting of the National Associ ation of Amateur Billiard Players last night Bt the I.lederkranz Club, sSth street and Park avenue, were considerably amazed when it developed that there were no applications received for the holding of the Class A national championship tourna ment. It is the first time in the history of the amateur organization that such a thing has happened. There was some discussion upon this turn of affairs, but it is certain that the trophy now held by Charles P. Wright, of San Francisco, who content* j.lairs entering the professional ranks, will .be played for this season. This city is favored for the tournament at the usual 14.2 balk line, provided arrangements can be made, and one of the Chicago flubs is also said to be a possible holder. The officers elected for the ensuing year were: President. Robert C Kammerer, New York Athletic Club; vice-president, Charles Starr. New York Athletic Club; treasurer. Augustus Rudolphy.

Accidents Mar yacht *Race The White Devil Wins Alone When Two Ice Boats Come to Grief in Stiff Breeze. [By ToUirrspli tn Th<» Tribune 1 Liong Branch. N. J.. Jan. 10— In a spank ing breeze, in which two of the three con testants for the silver cup offered by Com modore E. W. Reid broke down. Captain E. W. Price's White Devil was bailed to victory to-day over thft nflcen-niile course of the Shrewsbury Club. The. Clare! was leading:, when ?he broke a bolt in her pheerpole and withdrew. The Content yacht had a clear lead over the White. Devil for the first three laps. Fol lowing the first accident the Eaglft broke her runner and withdrew, leaving the White Devil to finish alone. The boat cov ered the course in 31 minutes. The Isabel and the Drub were shipped to-day to Red Bank, where they will take part in the race to-morrow for the third class pennant of the world. The two boats SPOUTS AT COLUMBIA Rowing and Athletic Contests with Navy Arranged. Columbia and Annapolis will row a two mile race on Saturday, May T, according to the announcement made at Columbia yesterday. Only the Columbia 'varsity eight will be pitted against the "middies, ' f contrary to the custom, established sev eral years ago, of a four-cornered race be tween the Columbia and Navy first and second eights. Straitened financial circum stances probably have something to do with curtailing the arrangements, for Columbia is just getting the crew firmly established again after a more than usually precarious jear. On the Eame day. it was announced, the Columbia and Navy track teams will meet at Annapolis, so that while the crews are rowing on the Severn, the cinder paht men •will be fighting it out on the land, roliim bia has already taken part in two of the^e double bills, and each time has suffered defeat in both parts. Although complete arrangements have ] not yet been announced, it is believed that ! the race will be rowed downstream and j will begin early In the afternoon, in order i that the New Yorkers may get an early I train back home. Columbia has never yet j won a crew race from the "middles" in j the six years that the institutions have been meeting on the water. In 190", how e\er, Columbia defeated the Navy decisive- ■ ly in the Poughkeepsie regatta, after the Navy crew had won from the Blue and White ir. a two-mile race on the Severn. The "varsity and freshman crew candl-^ dates were called out jest -relay, for the first time tins year. More than seventy five men reported, and Jim Rice, the coach, : seemed more than usually pieased, for | practically all of last season's 'varsity and ! freshman material reported. There is promise of a warm fight in thr Columbia gymnasium to-night, when the Columbia basketball team lines up against a team composed of oldtime Columbia? stars. This is the first alumni game that* has been played at Columbia In years, and much interest has heen aroused in it. The "grads" will have on the floor Frank O'Connell, '04; Harold Tuwnsend. '03; H. H. Klias. '08; Harry Fisher, '04: B. R. Yon Sholly, '05; Gus Rodgere, '04: Jack Ryan. 'C 9; S. Melitzer. 09; George Moore. '06, and ■Chick" Cuthel. 05. Before the 'varsity game the sophomores and freshmen will have their annual "'free-for-all" for the underclass basketball championship. AUTOMOBILES.

NEW YORK A C.WINS Takes Odd Game from Rose rille in Boiclers' League. By brilliantly pinning at home last night the New York Athletic Club team won the odd game from the champion Roseville five in an Athletic Bowling League series. In another series tha Montclair club team won all three games on the Columbian club alleys. The feature of last nights rollirg was the struggle for supremacy between New- York and Roseville in the third game, when both sides rolled more than a thou sand. A wretched start for Roseville, wherein the champion live got only 66 in the first frame, gave little Indication of what was to follow. From there on, however, both sides hit the. pins hard and strikes followed in rapid succession. In the third frame. New York led. with 3"« to 301, but then Meyer worked in seven hooks in a row. Starting down the tenth Rosevilie had a lead of 66. but two holes and a miss almost cost the game. As it was Roaevilte'i 1.014 only won by a msrpin of 12 pins. Oddly enough, Meyer and Sherwood both had the same score— 2l6. It was a hard game for New York to lose, for the reason that the team went through the t*n frames without an error. Theie were four holes, while Ropeville had five splits and three misses. hherwood was brilliant throughout, get ting an average of 227, while Meyer had 20..:. New York's average was 570.1. and Roseville's 947.1. The scores were as fol lows: ! NEW YORK. I ROPEY!

Association of Licked Automobile Manufacturers TIMELY AUTO TOPICS WANT CHEAPER CABS. Winner of Kandcrbilt Cup at the Garden Show. It is a mistake to suppose that the pur chasing public will follow styles in motor cars which are created for them without consulting their own desires, according to Arthur M. Day, president of the A. Elliott Ranney Company. The public, as a rule, has a way of expressing Its desire? in ad vance in no uncertain terms, and the man who is trying to market a product which does not meet this average desire must seek isolated instanres in order to make his sales, and he finds this particularly hard to do. Mr. Day added, in talking on this subject at the show in the Garden yesterday: Almost every automobile agent selling a car around $2,500 or *:: <V" has had hundreds of well-to-flo persons come into his sales 100ms, look carefully over the oar z ex amine it. not only with a critical eye but with N every evidence of knowing motor car value, and then go away and buy a cheaper and inferior make, simply because they did not believe in making' so large an investment. When this sort of thing happens several hundred times—as happen it. does in the course of a season— it is a tremendous in centive, for the agent to seek a high grade car of a lower price, even to the extent of pledging the purchase of several hun dreds of them to a manufacturer who can make such cars of standard grade. The a. Elliott Ranney Company was identified for years with a standard make, four-cylinder touring car. selling at $2,500. We were literally forced by the public into changing our 'in» and selling a high grade car of lower price. Yet we could not find a car selling af a low price of a grade suffi ciently high to met the standard which we felt we. had set in the motor car" mar ket, and it was not until the Hudson Motor Car Company produced its phenomena! Hudson roadster that we found a car of the highest grade appearance, design, me chanical excellence and performance quality necessary to our standard, and still selling at less than half the money of the car we had been handling. Harry F. Grant, of Boston, who drove the Alco car to victory in the Vanderrtilt Cup race last fall, arrived at the. show yes terday, and during the rest of the week he will make his headquarters at the Al< booth, where the cup and his racing car are both being exhibited. Grant's regular occupation is that of a salesman in Boston, but when asked about the prospect of. his being in the racing game next year he said that he expects to, do more racing than ever and hopes to win the Yanderbilt Cup a second time. Grant has a modest way of talking that is decidedly prepossessing. He says he considers that he had an advantage over th« other driver?, because, he was not in any way anxious about a front tire burst ing and the car turning over. "I drove, that same car on the track at Readville." said Grant, "and twice had front tires burst when I was running at high speed on the turn?. If ever it was going to turn over it would have done so then, but it Is too low built and well balanced to turn over, except In a ditch. Feeling this way about mv car. I could drive with no worry about a front tire bursting: and with a con sequent ease of mind that is as unusual as it is advantageous." Two new models at the show which at tractM attention were the Riverside and the Dreadnought. * shown by Palmer & Singer. The Riverside is a two-seated run about, fully enclosed. The dash is con tinued far up. making a strong wind shield, and the steering tube follows the line of the dash at an extreme angle. The body is molded aluminum, and the levers are out side, the body being curved In to allow of easy operation. The runabout has only one door, on the left hand side. The back of the car is finished in true torpedo lines, with gasolene tank behind the seat, tire carriers and locker room at the back. The Dreadnought suggests in its lines the power and swiftness of its namesake. It has a victoria top, and is finished in pig skin. The body is in French gray, with black streakings, and has an oil finish, which makes it exceedingly difficult to scratch. The car is completely inclosed, and each of the four seats is reversible and removable. This allows lunch to be served in the oar. The control levers are Inside, and the car is fitted with electric sidelights and gas headlights. That New York motorist!! will welcoms> an innovation as soon as its practical side is seen was shown at the show yesterday, when the big six-cylinder 66-horsepower touring landau, on exnibi tion at the Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Com pany's space, was sold soon after the open ing of the doors. The car was bought by a New York man, who intends to use It for touring purposes. The exterior finish of the car j^ a golden yellow, with black moulding, the interior being trimmed in brown Cordovan leather. The car is fitted with all the toilet acces sories that might prove useful on long trips. Among these are a folding wash basin, built along yachting lines, mirrors and several compartments for linen of various sorts. I'mler the rear seat is a luncheon kit for six persons. At tl* back of the car is a large baggage boat holding three special trunks, and two more trunks find space on top. The chauffeurs trunk fits into another compartment under the body. The running boards have been built up into boxes, where supplies and tools arc AUTOMOBILES. kept. Owing to the height of the running board?, flush with the floor of dM car. an additional step has been provided that drops down when the door is swung open. It is undersood that the Pierce- Arrow company may build several duplicates of this car on orders received during the show. The exhibit of the Baker Motor Vehicle Company is marked by the luxuriousness of the cars shown. A four passenger coupe is finished in black, striped with gold, upholstered , in golden bronze brocaded satin, trimmed with broad lace, with tufted satin head lining and silk window shades and draperies. It is equipped with a Holophone dome light, cut glass flower vase, and the controller handle and ail the metal parts are gold* mounted. The continuous fenders are of patent leather, with patent leather skirts between th* fenders and chassis covering the: front and rear wheel.". It is a new Idea, to send a trophy won in competition on a tour of the country, but that is what will be don* with the ?I<>A!O Atlanta gold trophy now held by th» Rainier Motor Company. So great has been the desire; on. the part of automobile race enthusiasts all through th« Kastern States to view this prize that the holders have agreed to place it on exhibition in a selected list of clti*?.
