Resolute Going to Drydock Before
Thursday^sJRaee?Kerrigan Leads Way on Link?
Coating of Oil and Dirt
Found on Hull of Defender
Investigation Shows That Waters of Lower Bay
Carry Thick Layer of Oil; Shamrock IV Is
Launched and Towed to Sandy Hook
By Jack Lawrence
A thick coating of oil and dirt that gathered on her white hull and
remained there despite the "apron" she wore when she was launched and
while she was being towed through the murky water of the Upper Bav
caused the managers of the America's Cup defender Resolute to decide last
night to send her once more to drydock before she meets the Shamrock IV
in the first international race on Thursday.
When the Herreshoff cup yacht left
the yards of the Morse Drydock and
Repair Company in Brooklyn on Satur?
day it -as believed that she was in
perfect C.-im to meet the British chal?
lenger. She was towed to Sandy Hook
K her tender, the steamer Montauk,
and anchored in the sheltered horse
No attempt was made to give her a
j-grJ workout under sail on Sunday, but
when her ???reat wings were raised yes?
terday and she heeled over under the
nitid pressure it was discovered that
from stem to stern below the water
line her meta! hall was coated with a
thick covering of oil and dirt that
had the consistency of gelatine.
Hull Draped With Canvas
The waters about the month of the
Morse drydock were seen to have a
varicolored surface of oil when the
defender was launched, and to avoid
picking this up a huge canvas tarpaulin
was draped about her hull. After she
was taken in tow and was within a
mile of Bell Buoy No. 12, off Robin's
Reef, the waters appeared to clear on
the surface an? it was decided to re?
move the canvas to facilitate the tow?
Whether tho white sloop collected the
oil coating before or after the canvas
was removed is not known, but an
investigation yesterday of surface con?
ditions in the Lower Bay and in the
vicinity o? the Hook convinced the
Resolute's managers that the waters
there carried a thick layer of oil.
The oil, whilejnjjt so apparent to the
eye, was found to be almost as thick
as it was in the upper reaches of the
harbor, where many oil burners were
anchored. The investigation on the
part of the Resolute'a men developed
the fact that bathing at Atlantic High?
lands and many of the Jersey coast re?
sorts as far south as Ocean Grove has
been s-scended at various times within
the last two weeks on account of the
Harbor patrol men who have been
assigned to the duty of policing the
course over which the cup races will
be sailed declared last night that it
would be almost impossible for either
yacht to go to the mark on Thursday
wi?h a clean hull. They said that oil
burning b te am era are entering the port
of New York every day and that it is
their custom to clear their engines and
lead pipes by allowing the liquid fuel
to flow overboard. As oil burners are
now almost as numerous as coal fueled
ships the waters of the lower bay are
almost constantly coated with grease.
Goes to Staten Island To-day
The Eesolute's managers found that
it was impossible to remove the layer
of dirt and oil without drydocking the
boat and a telegram was sent to the
Staten island Shipbuilding Company
asking whether a berth was available
there immediately.' A favorable reply
w&3 received and the defender will be
taken to the Staten Island plant to-day
in tow of her tender.
Yachting men familiar with condi?
tions in the lower bay say that the
treatment t? be received by the Reso?
lute wll probably have to be iepeated
with the Shamrock, as she is sure to
gather a layer of oil on her hull before
Thursday morning when she 3tarts for
When Sir Thomas Lipton laid his lat?
est America's Cup challenge before the
New York Yacht Club the officials of
that organization urged that the inter?
national contests be held over the
Brenton's Reef course, off Newport,
R. I. Considerable correspondence was
carried on between the Royal Ulster
Yacht Club and the New Y'ork club
about this question, but the challengers
held cut for Sandy Hook and finally
carried their point. This was undoubt?
edly because atmospheric condition* off
the Hook were best known to the Brit?
ishers and the Shamrock IV was de?
signed to make the best of them.
The fact is that if the fourth Sham?
rock could not win over the famous
Newport course there is small chance
that she could achieve victory at Sandy
Hook. Twenty years have worked vast
changes in maritime and other condi?
tions in this vicinity, and the oily ex?
perience of the Resolute is only an in?
dication that the New Y'ork Y'acht Club
officials were right when they decided
that the historic cup course was no
longer suited for the racing of yachts.
The Shamrock was put overboard
early yesterday afternoon at the Morse
?wipyard with the measurements of her
?para and sail area still undetermined.
??ii| understood that Professor Harold
Jebb, official measurer of the New
lork Yacht Club, will take these fig?

coat of clover green, was slipped out

Dr. Rosenbaum, Last Year's
Winner, in Draw, but Does
Not Play; F. P. A. Wins
By Fred Hawthorne
Franklin Pierce Adams and seventy
four other players started in the an?
nual men's open lawn tennis tourna?
ment of the Woodmere Club, at Wood
mere, L. I., yesterday afternoon, on
the clay courts by the sea. It is tho
largest, and, of couree, the most dis?
tinguished as to personnel entry that
ever started in this fixture.
A total of eighteen mntches was
I completed during the afternoon, and
| this might have been considerably im
; proved had it not been for the Long
? Island cloudburst that sprayed the
! landscape about 6 o'clock in the eve
| ning, just when the ''tired business
j man" was getting into hir, flannels in
i preparation for a match.
Does Not Carry Title
The tournament this year does not
carry with it the title of Lonj; Island
singles champion, but the winner will
I be hailed as such by his follow men,
? and ho will win a leg on the Woodmere
bowl, which Dr. William Rosenbaum
; captured last year for the first time.
Rosenbaum is in the draw, but did not
reach the courts in time to play, due,
it was said, to the bad condition of the
roads between Bayshore and Wood
Some of the prominent ? contenders,
in addition to those mentioned, are
Fred C. Anderson, Harold L. Taylor,
Gerald B. Emerson, Donald Keresey, ;
Ben Letson, Harvey B. O'Boyle, A. D. j
Hammett, Captain Robert C. Van
Vliet, Willard Botsford, Percy L. j
Kynaston, Paul Martin and William :
Adams won his first round match
from Victor Peixotte, by a score of
6?4, 6?2. It might have gone three
sets but for the fact that in tho locker
room before the match, "our hero,"
incognito, approached his victim and
asked him who he was drawn against.
"Oh, a fellow named F. P. Adams," re?
plied the unsuspecting Peixotte. "Any
good?" hi3 inquisitor wished to know.
"No. Plays around a lot, but not good,"
was the answer.
Five minutes later Adams had re?
moved his disguise and faced his rival
on the court. Peixotte was game and
never asked for quarter, and so they
went to it, with the match going to
Adams as stated. Both men unleashed
their most furious batteries of deep j
court forehand drives. ?
First Set Hard Fought
Peixotte put up a bitter fight in the
first set, but in the second the pace
began to wreak its toll on his endur?
ance, and Adams swept on to an im?
pressive victory. In the next round
E. T. Appleby, his opponent, defaulted,
leaving the victor in the third round,
where he will face either Herbert L.
Bowman or Willard Botsford this after?
Botsford defeated D. M. Lay at 6?1,
6?2 in the first round, doing most of
his work from back court and only oc?
casionally coming in to the net to
score on finely placed overhand volleys
and smashes. Keresey won two
matches, defeating H. J. Fitzpatrick at
6?1, 6?3, and Sheridan Gibney at !
6?0, 6?4, respectively. He was play- j
ing with plenty of pace and h?3 over- I
head %vork was unusually reliable.
Carleton Putnam reached into the
fourth round by the medium of a bye, j
a default and a win over Dr. H. llar- ?
ditt at 6?2, 6?1, and is now the fur- |
truest out toward the final brackets. |
Fred Anderson,iGallon and Letson also!
won their opening matches without be- !
Leslie H. Fischel, the referee," had !
everything working without a hitch, ;
the players punching the time clock as j
they arrived ?t the courts, going!

As Horses Fall
In Sixth Race
Star Jockey's Shoulder Bro?
ken When Costly ?Colors
Takes Header Near Finish
A tragedy was narrowly averted
during the running of the last event
at the Aqueduct track yesterday when
two of the horses fell right near the
finish, throwing Jockeys Clarence
Kummer and N. Barrett in a masd of
tangled legs. Fortunately both boys
relied out of danger and escaped with
a slight shaking up.
For a few moments the horses, Costly
Colors and Flying Cloud, lay on the
track with their feet almost locked,
and the big crowd thought they had
been killed. Flying Clotus finally
struggled to her feet and was led
away, but Costly Colors was unable to
get up, her hips apparently having been
paralyzed by the faU. She was de?
The accident happened less than
fifty yards from the finish and in full
i view of the spectators. Costly Colors
j was right up with the leaders and
j fighting it out, when she stumbled and
I fell. Kummer was thrown heavily and
1 knocked out. Flying Cloud, which was
j many lengths back of the field, came
I thundering along, but Barrett did not
j have a chance to steer clear of, Costly
Colors and crashed into her. The boy
| was thrown about fifteen feet in the
] air and fell fiat on his back.
The jockeys were picked up by stable
hands, but they recovered in a few
minutes and walked off the track.
Later Kummer was taken to St..
Mary's Hospital, Jamaica, where it
was found by Drs. Masarte and Mc- |
Clcllan that the jockey's left shoulder '
was broken. He will be out of the game I
for several months, it Is believed.
Carefu! Beaten Again
Crocus, carrying the silks of Harry
Payne Whitney, won the Astoria Din?
ner Stakes in hollow style, beating the
fleet Careful, J. E. Davis's Prodigy
and the Oneck Stable's Fright. Care?
fu!, which has met with one other de?
feat this season, was made *n odds
on choice at 3 to 5. Crocus was next
in favor at 2 to 1. The other two
were neglected in the betting.
When Starter Cassidy turned them
loose Careful went to the front and
set a dizzy pace, closely followed by
the Whitney filly. Half way down the
chute Ambrose let Crocus down and
the filly shot to the front, where she
stayed to the end, winning with plenty
in reserve by two lengths. Careful
tired badly toward the linish, and she |
was doin?r her very best to beat Prodi- '?
gy a length for second money.
It was about, the most disastrous day I
the form players have had this season, j
Outsiders won all the events except the
jump, which went to the heavily backed
Queen of the Sea. The biggest disap?
pointment of the afternoon came in the
third race when Mad Hatter was nosed
out by II. P. Whitney's Arethusa. Mad
Hatter was picked as the outstanding
likely winner of the day and would
have finished first with a more intelli?
The field broke to a perfect start,
but before they had gone a sixteenth
Mad Hatter was lengths behind. Going
to the far turn, Fator was sitting stilt
and making no effort to improve his
position. Coming into the stretch he
moved up slowly.
Inside the last quarter it looked as
$100,000 Is Hildreth's
Offer for Inchcape,
SAM C. HILDRETH yesterday
made an offer of $100,000 for
Inchcape, the sterling two-year-old
colt owned by J. H. Roaaeter. Hll
dreth made the proffer to Trainer
Fred Burlew, who immediately com?
municated with Rosseter. The
trainer, however, expressed doubt
whether the owner would sell even
at that price.
Burlew admitted that Hildreth
had offered $50,000 for the son of
Friar Rock before the running of
the Tremont Stakes, but it was
turned down by the trainer, who has
permission to buy or sell for Ros?
seter. Burlew said he preferred to
let the owner decide on the latest
though the Hildreth colt was going to
run over the leaders when Fator put
down his whip and started to hand
ride. In the mean time Arethusa had
opened a gap of several lengths. Fator
drew his whip again and the colt, re?
sponding with great gameness, tore
after the flying leaders, but the dis?
tance was too short to make up the
ground and he just failed to land the
Liberty Girl, a 15 to 1 shot, won the
opening race from a field of eleven
ordinary horses. She broke next to
last but made up ground rapidly, caught
the leaders in the last sixteenth and
won by an open length from American
Eagle. Brisk was third.
I Man o' War came out of his record
[ breaking race on Saturday in good
shape and will not be seen in public
again until he goes to the post at Sar?
atoga for the Traverse Stakes.
Liberty Girl was claimed by James
Johnson for- $1,600. Huron II was
claimed by George Corder for $1,500.

Siwanoy Golf Professional
Takes 143 in Open Tourney
????'???? , ??
His Morning Round of 70
Two Under Par; Fifty
Compete at Gedney Farm
By Ray McCarthy
Tom Kerrigan, the snappy young
professional of the Siwanov Country
i Club, playing in superb golfing form,
j had the honor of winning the first
annual Westchester open tournament,
also the first tourney open to outsiders
ever held on the Gedney Farm Coun?
try Club course. The meet was a huge
| success in every way and undoubtedly
\ will be made a fixture. About fifty
! professional and amateur players from
. the Westchester district competed, and
on the whole the scores were excel?
Kerrigan won first money by play?
ing around in 70, two strokes under
par, in the morning, and then taking a
73 in the afernoon for a total of 143.
This is golf that is pluperfect, or at
least a trifle better than that con?
When Kerrigan's score was learned
the spectators and others who know of
the Gedney Farm players, the course
and records, began to talk of Kerrigan's
being a record score. It is if tourna?
ment tallies are considered, because
this is the first tourney, but it is re?
ported that better scores have been
made over these links, as for instance
Jack Dowling's wonderful 67, which
he turned in last Saturday afternoon
in one of those social games.
However, this isn't meant to take
anything away from the Siwanoy man.
His game yesterday was the best of
a lot which included many of the best
players in the district, and was one
which is seldom bettered around these
parts. Tommy had everything yester?
day. His driving wa3 tremendously
long and straight. His iron shots
were beautifully and effectively made
all the way around and his putting on
greens which others found treacherous
and difficult was wellnigh faultless.
Anything that could be reasonably
made Tommy put down.
His cards were as follows:
Par .4 4 3 5 3 5 4 4 4?3?
Kerrigan _3 4354543 4?35
Par.3 4 3 5 4 4 4 5 4?36? 7.'
Kerrigan _35343444 5?35? 71
Par.4 3 3 4 3 6 5 3 4?35
Kerrigan _3 5364454 4?38?14,'
It is quite evident there is going t(
be plenty of kern competition or
Thursday at Staten Island, when th<
pros from this entire section gathe:
to qualify for the national P. G. A
championship, judging from the score:
turned in yesterday. Arthur Reid, th.
Ardsley star, took second money witl
a fine tally of 149. his afternoon scor?
being tho same as Kerrigan's, 73. Ii
the morning he took a 76 for a tota
of 149. This was a stroke better thai
that of little Jack Dowling's, the Scars
dale pro, who is credited with hsrvinj
made the course in 67 on Saturday lasi
J. S. Worthington, also of Siwanoy
who won the Westchester amateur mee
at Dunwoodie in May, and who finishe
in a tie for fifth place yesterday, wo
the prize for the amateurs. Worthing
ton went around both in the mornin
and afternoon in 76 for a total of 15?
Frank Hunt, of Mosholu; Fred Canansi
of Oak Ridge; T. Hannon, of Hudson
River; P. Harmon, of Hudson River,
and Tom McNamara, of Siwanoy, all
made scores of 15-2 each.
Jesse Sweetser, the Yale youngster,
who won the intercollegiate title last
month, was next in line with a score
of 153. Sweetser formerly belonged to
i the Ardslcy Club, but is now a member
I of Siwanoy, which gives that club four
| 1020 titleholders.
Besides S'.veetser, there is Worthing
ton, who won the Westchester amateur,
' Ned Sa'Aryer, who captured the Metro?
politan amateur tournament and Tom
Kerrigan, who came through yesterday.
John Anderson, who was largely in?
strumental in arranging the meet at
Gedney Farm, was highly elated over
fr?e tourney. "We certainly had a good
showing, considering it was the first
meet of its kind," he said.
