There is scarcely a man in Now York who
did not know Jlr Travors by reputation and
his personal acquaintance with business men
was notably extensive And rot fow people
really know him and ho was greatly misunder
stood und underestimated The majority of
mon would and usually did pronounce him an
eager speculator a jolly liver a man of the
world in the broadest sense His jokes and
witticisms reproduced in tho newspapers
made his name familiar t thousands who
had no other knowledge of him and construct
ed a Imaginary Travers out of these mate
rials Ho was talked of from ono tese of the
town to the other and from city to city until
everybody thought at least that he knew the
man tho name being often associated with
levity good fellowship and reckless audacity
But in all this tho public sadly misjudged or
misunderstood the man He was never n wild
speculator in any sense though for many years
a conspicuous llguro In Wall street and at
times ono of its largest operator On the con
trary ho was always a clrful prudent intclll
gout business man conducting his operations
with tho strictest regard t wellestablished
commercial principles and riolug governed by
Though ho mado money often with great
rapidity he was never accused of being a
sharper or of wronging his follows in a bar

Mr Travors fater born In Baltimore in An

tician and while tho son was 0 child was sent

cotton manufacturing at Piitarson NJ
whither he removed While William was a lad
his mother died The boy was early noted as
a leldor Imonu companions In their rougher
sports and frollCMjmo Irks Another char
actoriftluof hit childhood was his shrewdness
in 1 trading for which ho had I remarkable pro
pensity Ho was never averse to swapping

fellow standing well up In his class and
would certainly have graduated with dlsUp u

he was too honorable t enjoy tho nations

could not render tho Implied return ho re
signed after two years 11rlod
But though ho could not consistently with
his own convictions complete the course at
West Point hohad nevertheless determined
on a full course of study and on his return to
this city ho entered Columbia College and
graduated In 18 His fate gave him 0 form
near Perth Amboy At that time the silkworm
craze was nt its height and young Travors
covered his a far with mulberry yunl and tire
posed making 0 fortune out of coon lao
or two men ear of that experiment satisfied h
rent ste
and he quit it a loser
His next movement was to Baltimore when
ho formed 0 partnership Wllmot Johnson
under tbo firm namo Johnson Travpra Tho
business was wholesale groceries with a gen
oral produce commission attachment The
era did not prosper and after a desperate
struggle of 0 few years Its career terminated
in n disastrous failure In 1853 leaving Travors
then but young man sadly Involved in debt
Nor was his father then able t render him
further assistance Ho wasthrown entirely
I upon hla own resources
During hla short residence in Baltimore Mr
Travers h formed an acquaintance with
ha Iwlh
Miss Louisa Johnson daughter of tho eminent
lawyer and statesman Boverdy Johnson and
undaunted by his business failure pressed his
suit for her hand It was a case of mutual affep
tlon and Mr Johnson consented t the match
Mr Tracers took his bride to Patron at
first In time he formed 0 partnership with
Edward H Miller and entered Wall street o 1
broker He became a member of the Stock
Exchange on July 96 1891 Tho firm did ago
good business and made money from the start
but for some reason was continued only a
couple of years lon the mea time however
Mr Trovers brought his family to this city
which has ever since boon their homo During
tho continuance of this firm also Mr Travers
was enabled from thl share of tho profits to
pay off the debts of the unfortunate Baltimore
enterprise satisfying not merely his own share
but that of his partner a well with scrupu
lous insistence paying a hundred ont on
every dollar with accrued Interest
In regard to those old debts 0 characteristic

After parting with Miller Travers formed a

was B a successful venture The ilrm lasted
but two years and In that time its losses ex
ceeded ear I at its termination tho
net profits lot a balance tho credit of tho

when he did BO ma transactions were usual

hundreds of thousands of dollars of just of

this was not always tho case Ono wellknown

transactions had ownl crooked and his failure
was generally reported t be a swindle Tho noxt

sign off that debt and forbade thoso in his em
ploy from doing sp A year later the man was
In the street operating again and was believed
to bo making money Jlr ravels manager
went t tho bookkeeper and demanded the
mans account The bookkeeper replied that
It had been signed off by Mr ravel The
manager went Immediately to Mr Trnvors
about it and exhibited no little feeling against
the debtor Travers replied

QUEKKSTOWN March 27All through this
quiet little town and for miles into the green
country around it the news has been spread
ing that a great race across the ooaa was to
bo ended hero and a great deal of fame and f
money gained by the ablest sailors in the fast
est yacht Tho telegraph office has been the 4
centra ot the place and the correspondents of
the Now York papers down from London In 3
force have marvelled to loam the richness of
tho Irish tongue as regards the pronouncing of
Coronet and Dauntless For a week rumors ot 4
all sorts hare kept every one anxious and this b
morning reliable news finally came that the
Coronet bad boon Boon flying along off the t
coast and that the oat ot the fine struggle was
coming The enthusiasm immediately dis
played was creditable to the people of Queens
town and flattering to American yachtsmen
Every ono who had on American flag spread it
out and the population promptly formed It
self Into a thick black excited ribbon along the
shore In the meanwhile a swarm of small
boats woro desperately pulling over the choppy
water and black clouds of smoke marked
the progress of a race between tho launch ot
the loyal Cork Yacht Club the steam tug that
was getting there in the interest ot THE SuitS
readers and about all tho other boats going by
steam ot which Quoonstown can boast The
first glimpse of the yacht showed that she had
crossed the ocean bravely and had known how j
to moot all the hard treatment that Neptune
had prepared The wind was good and stiff 1
Under all plain sails the flying jib and main
topmast staysail with the Stars and Stripes
flapping with the Now York Yacht Club and
her own flags sho camo flying along model
of grace and beauty The white gulls wheeled
and dived In the sunlight about her It was a 4
picture to warm every sailors heart
CIIOSSINO THE vicinity wig
The line that she must cross to complete her
victory stretched across a narrow neck of wa
ter between Bochos Point and Weaver Point
through which the waters of the ocean tumble
into the harbor As eho came flying to her
journeys end sharp gusts coming across from
Itochos Point caused tho beautiful spread ot
canvas to bo lessoned by the topsails stay
sails and flying jib A few minutes afterward
she crossed the line hcraMod by the booming
of her cannon and the clouds ot white smoke t t
that shot out from her dock announced that
the journey was done
It was just a few seconds before 1250
oclock The root time taken to run the race
was 11 days 19 hours 50 minutes and 3 sec
onds The apparent time duo to the suns
tendency deceive those who accompany bin
around the earth was 11 days 23 hours 59 min
utes 8 seconds In that time the yacht had
ploughed through 2879 knoUCor 3328 statute
miles of salt water a very large proportion
the salt water having presented itself in the
shape of largo mountains with valleys to 4
match between them 4
Tho members of the Cork Yacht Club who
bad gone down to meet tho Coronet had enter
tained a settled conviction and the newspaper
men had cherished a alight hope that they
would bo taken on board at the point and t
shaken by the band No such thing happened
The yacht which at a distance seemed to bo
gliding along gently was discovered on nearer
acquaintance to bo rushing through the water
at a steam car rate of speed and it kept right
on in its journey toward Queenstown after the 4
imaginary finishing line had been crossed
The Quoonstown fleet ot steamships struggled v
humbly along behind They learned perhaps 4
that they were not so swift as they had thought
and took a lesson in humility They couch
up when the journey up the harbor compelled
the yacht to tack and then the end ot Usa 4
yachts journey became a triumph m
Flags were dipped all about Everybody In
the swarm of boats cheered never minding
the salt spray which blew down his throat
The crowds on shore cheered with an energy
that was frantic and kept it up long after the
lost white soil nod boon culled down and the
Coronet had anchored at her journeys end
before the Cork Yacht Clubhouses Members
ot the club swarmed aboard Two boat loads
of officers arrived from the English guard ship
Bovengo attired in their most gorgeous finery j
Congratulations were poured out invitation
to dinner wore accepted and little by little the Y
story of the trip come out It was told in
pieces and the pieces flew all through the town
as they came out
One fact Oiled with proud joy every heart on
board It was that not a single thing on board
had been torn or broken or Injured with a
