The driving contests were held on a special
course marked out on the lawn. It was Hfty
yards wide and the distances measured most
carefully, beginning at the -OO-yard mark. '
Last year Cutting, Jr.. won the long driving ,
prize with a record of 'J 10 yards. The best
scores to-day Indicate that the amateur are 1m- ,
proving on their drives, for Herbert llarriman
won with 24.1 yards 7 Inches. W. H. Betts being
second with '-'43 yards 5 Inches. Some twenty i
players competed, llarriman has the record of
being the longest driver in the Knjll

I the 19t-rurd hole In two. The amateurs out
drove tha profesilonals. who competed In a

T. tUwlins was second with -'J-t yards. The

I The closing event to-morrow Is the final nmnd
at thirty-! holes between Whlgh.im and Betts
for the amateur championship. There appears
i to be little hope that Betts will win.
The good form shown by Whtgnnm has greatly
1 Impressed W. G. Stewart, the amateur from
1 Great Britain, and he has made the following
analysis of his plar specially for Tue tic.
1 Stewart says:
"Whicham is certainly six strokes better than
' any American reared golfer. He has a very
' pretty style. In driving he is ver effective.
I The clab head follows through, the club travels
I along the ground on unnsuallr lo g distance,
) and the result Is a clean hit. with a long carry
, and the slightest pull. Ills driving compares
favorably with the driving of leading am tteurs
I In Great Britain. A distinctive feature of his
fame is the approach shot wi'h the iron. The
ackrvard swing, say for a half shot. Is very short,
i while the follow-through Is exceptionally long.
I The club bead from beginning to end of swing
l describes the arc of an unusually Urge circle.
The ball is consequently hit very true, it has a
low flight and drops dead. The flight 1" o low

He la a good putter, but. like other mortals,
he every now and then misses a two-foot put or
falls to lay a long one dead. He Is an attractive
player to watch, as he combines grace with

here can be no doubt that he Is the fore
most American amateur, and on the other (We
he would occupy a position hardly behind the
leading players. He Is probably a better match
than score player, as he seems to require some
Incentive to make him play up."

PalTlT lerfnnctrv anal lt Member Ite

National Guard members have been talking
for a long tlmo of the desirability of having a
permanent military commander for the forces j
of tho! State, and a number of plans for this
a ve been advanced. Having a permanent i
Adjutant-General was tbe first suggestion. The
Army and .Yury Journal of to-day sets forth a
new plan which. It asserts, does away with the
objection! that have been urged against thoso
heretofore proposed. It say;
"At the last meeting of ths National Guard
Association at Albany the subject of the reor
ganization of the National Uuard was dliousscd
by tho ofilcers. but the matter was not brought
beforo tho convention. At that time two
plans were suggested. Oao was for the forma
tion of a division and the appointment of a
Major-General with headquarters at Albany.
The Major-General. so appointed, with his staff
to bo the permanent staff of the Governor.
Each member of tho staff to receive a salary,
the tame as received by ofilcers of similar rank
In the I'nlted States Army. The second plan
proposed was to divide the National Guard into
two divisions, the headquarters of one division
to be In New York and to bo composed of the
First and Second brigades; the second division
to have headquarters at Albany or Buffalo and
to be composed of the Third and Fourth bri
gades. "The first plan," ths Journal says, "was
strongly opposed by nearly all the commanding
officers of the First and Second brigades on tho
ground that tho efficiency and esprit of the Na
tional Guard would be let if tho commanding
officer and members of his staff were to re
ceive compensation, and that tho salaries of
tho Major-General and the members of tho
staff would be such a considerable sum that
the appointments of the staff officers would bo I
controlled by politics, and on the further ground
that the compensation that might be paid would
bo Insufficient to obtain the tervlces of tha I
most desirable men. It being necessary for them I
to reside in Albany. The second plan was j
much criticised and strongly ojwoeed on tho
ground that the practical command of the Stato
troops would still remain with tho Governor
and his staff, and that orders of detail for camp
and for other duties would emanate from Stato
The plan now brought forward Is as follows:
"That the National Guard of the State should
bo organized Into one division and be command
ed by a MoJor-GencraL who should be elected
by the hrigude comniAr,ders and the command
ing officers o(reginints and who should have his
headquarters in the city of New York. That
the Major-General and his staff should terra
without compeniatton. To meet the criticism
that volunteer officers would be unable to give
the necessary time to perform the duties of tho
several staff deportments. It Is proposed that
the Major-General should have the power to ap
point or detail an assistant in the deportments
of tho Adjutant-General of Inspection, and of
ride practice. That the asalatanta in these three
departments should be entitled to receive com-
pensation. That the Major-General hove au- '
thority to appoint such assistants in these sev
. eral departments from tho regular army or ap
point or detail officers o' the National Guard.
j It is believed that officers of the L'nlted States
Army would be more than willing to be appoint-
ed as assistants upon the division staff and to
give their entire time to their duties on account
' of tho compensation they would receive in
addition to their salary In tho United States
I Army. Should the Major-General deem It
' more desirable to make, details from the Na
i tlon.il Guard of the state to fill these positions
in the threw departments, moat desirable men
could always be obtained, and so long as these
men received compensation they would not bo
members of the division staff, but would be
assistants in the departments to which they
were detalleit, and if other assistance was cec
e?sarv, other details could be made."
In commenting upon this proposal the Ann
arul .Vary Journal soys-
"Sui.h a plan as this would put ths entire
National Guard In charge of one officer, who
would receive no compensation and would
; have had experience In tna National Guard, and
I tbe appointments to the division ami brigade
ataffs should be Uautcd to perkons who hod
held a cuccraivlon in the Natlouai Guard. This
plan would abo permit mrular annual inspec
tion, under tbe direction of the division com
cuiler. In the Adju'.ont-General's depart
ment, lnspi-ctian department, and In the de
portment of rifle praulce. Tho expenditure
of t.u.e appropriation for the National Guard
woiud be entirely under the direction of tbo
Mj;oHenerii. It 2 also contemplated that
the members of the Governor s ataff thould bo
purely exec-itive ofilcers; that tbe Governor's
staff should be reduced to one Adjutant-General
of the grade of Br-gad-cr-Gencral. who
ihall be the'-hlef of staff one thief of ord
nance. Ami one Judge Advocate-General, each
of the KTviQ of Cilooel. and four oidctf-do
.aiip e.u-ii i;f tie grade of Lieutenant Colonel.
"The duties performed by tho different de
partments of thd National Guard as now or-gaa-zod
thotud bo consolidated Into these three
departments, and th Governor should bo au
thorized to appoint only one ajslitant In each
deportment with rank of Lieutenant-Colonel,
and vthat other asalitoncu was necessary
ehoo'ii tie performed b? clerks or deta.ls from
the National (tuard. With such on organiza
tion, all details for camp should be mode by
tbe Maior'General. ami under li.9 ;prip latlon
allowed to the division, he could oraV.- ) men
or brigade encampments or brigade or re.
mental marcnes. as he should deom deairable.
Tbo advantage of having the he-dtiuarters
of the division in New York cltr Is very obvl
oua. The headquarters would be where three
fourtns of ths troops are totloned. Candidates
for tbe position of Major-General would b
found among men who hod had experience In
commanding troops whero thero hod boon
brigade ami division formations anil where tbe
molt available men in every resject could al
ways bo found."
Brig -GenJILouls Fltnrerald said of tho plan:
"I most cordially approve of the suggestion
that tho National Guard tbould be formed
Into a division ami that Its commander should
serve like all line officers without pay. I alto
approve tho plan of having assistants 'n the de-
Sirtments of the Adjutant-General, Irupy'tor
eneral. and Itine Inspector, taen from ten
regular army or National Guard, with pay If
"Personally, I have taken my duties In the
National Uuard very lenously. mt experienco

grave responsibilities of its commanding offi

its efficiency will be maintained and Its per
manency secured by eliminating from It all
fnlitical considerations and personal Inlluences.
hove depmated the too great attention given
to the National Guard by the prein, but hsvo
found It impossible to overcome that factor, for
the rev-on that tbo Guard enlisted from tha
pronto carries with it thu affection and .nterest
of the piMjpl became of their pi-rional relation
to it, and the press, eager to relate alt anil
every Incident that Is of interest to the people,
(omotlmos cy excels of leal publishes matters
nr giro a tailoring to them that had better in
the general interest bo left to their own solu
tion. "As the State grows In population and Im
portance, the National Guard will naturally
grow In proportion, and as It Ii purely a volun
teer organization, Its growth and strength will
detx-nd upun tne popularity and wisdom or Its
management. Thus we seo those organiza

while those whoe officers are Inexperienced or

'Any effort lo place the National Clusrd upon

to 1' oilcert and men, for tho latter Is a natuial
sequence to tho former, I hellovo to be con
trary to the lows of the I'nlted States, and
destructive to the future of the organization,
and any effort to place officers In torr.ru.ind of
volunteers without their sanction will un
doubtedly lead to dissatisfaction."
Col. Daniel A pplefon of the r'eventft Regiment
said: "I believe In having a permanent Major
General to serve without pav, and wboxj head
quarters ahould bo In New York city."
I'oh Franklin Harriett of the Twenty-second
Regiment said: "In my opinion the be6t In
terests ot 'be National Guard demand that there
should be a Major-General in command, who
should receive no p.ir. except in tbe line of ar.
tivu service in the field, and that the tieadqtinr
ters of such Major-General should be In the
city of New York."
Col. Francis V, Greece of the Evenly-first
Regiment nd: "I think the National Guard
should constitute u military division, under
command of a Major-General, stationed In the
city of New York, serving without compensa
tion, and appointed by tho Governor on tho
nomination of tbe majority of the brigade
regimental commanders, the battalion, squad
ron, troop, batte.-y and separate company na
1 Builders, to hare a fraction at vote, propozXioa-
at to their strength. I consider a reorganiza
tion on this basis essential to the continued and
further Improvement of the National Onard."
CoL Oeorga Moore Smith of tho Sixty-ninth
Regiment said: "I am heartily In favor of tha
reorganization of the National Guard Into one
division, to be commanded by a Major-General.
who thould havo his headquarters In New
York city, and, further, that a MaJor-aen-eral
should terra without compensation, ex
cept, of course, when In actual service."
Itrig.-Gen. Peter C Doyle, commanding tha
Fourth Brigade, whose headquarters are at
Buffalo, said: "I believe It would be for tbe
best Interest of tho National Guard to have a
permanent Major-General In command. Soma
of the officers of my brigade arc of the opinion
that a Major-General should receive a salary
and hove no other occupation, but, personally,
I am of the opinion that such officer, so lung as
he can be eeurcd, should ecrve without pay,
and. further, that he should have his he ulquar
ters where he resides. I' is not at all necessary
that a Major-General should reside In Albany.
Col. Alexis C. Smith of the Twenty-third Regi
ment said; "I believe It to be for the best In
terest of the service that the National Guard
bo organized Into one division, under a perma

Hlggins would become hysterical at times and

' The American line steamer St, Louis, which
arrived hem late yesterday afternoon, brought
a large number of passengers. Tho first and
second cabins were taxed to their utmost ca
pacity, tha first cabin passengers numbering
, about 400. Most of them were Americans,
and the line's pier at tha foot of Fulton street
was crowded all tho afternoon with the friends
of those on board. It was tha biggest crowd
that has welcomed any returning ship this
year. Among those on the ship were Mr.
and Mrs. George Gould, Mrs. Gould's mother,
Mrs. Klngdon. and the four Gould children,
Thomas O. Shearman, Mrs. George W. Chllds,
E. S. Wlllard and his company, and tho Right
Hon. W. J. Ptrrle, tha shipbuilder and Lord
Mayor of Belfast.
None of the St. Louis's many passenger!
teemed mors glad to be home again than
George Gould. Mr. Gould camo up the gang
plank with his little daughter :VlvIan In his
arms. Miss Vivian declined to allow any
body but her father to carry her, and only
consented to bo turned over to a servant when
sho had been conveyed to the end of tha pier.
j To a Sl-x reporter Mr. Gould tald:
"I have been away for threo months, resting,
I and I am feeling as well aa I aver did in my
life as a result of my vacation. We tpent a
great deal of the time in Franco and Swltzer
i land, and mode good uso of the bicycles we took
away with us. We enjoyed that method of
, getting about tho country much better than
I tho conventional but stuffy trains.
"By the way, tho American bicycle Is mak
1 ing great strides In England and on the Con
tinent. Our standard makes are regarded by
mony as for superior to the English and French
, wheels, and there Is great demand for them,
all of which Is very gratifying for on American
to observe. Tho American wheel is lighter
and oil around a cleverer bit of mechanism
titan the bicycles mode abroad. Devotees of
; tho wheel are beginning to realize this and
1 you see American wheels wherever you go.
I "Since I have been abroad the prosperity
of which thero were signs when 1 left eeems
to hove settled over the land. This con
dltlon of things has not goco unnoticed In
I Europe, but has been a subject of general dls
cusslon. In England as well as on the Conti
nent they have suddenly come to tho conclu-
slon that we are of some consequence over here
i after: au. The shortness of their wheat crops
and the bounteousnes of ours have had much
to do with this tudden feeling of respect. They
sem to realize that wo oier here have hit on
tho right track at last and are going to remain
J "Conditions were never more favorable for
I an er of sustained prosperity than they are
now The tariff Is settled and the silver ques
tion and other bugbsiars have been disposed of.
There Is nothing to block prosperity's march
, I thoroughly believe that there Is nothing
I temporary about the present good times. I
feel sure they have come to stay. After all.
with our. farmers doing so well It Is not tur
prising tbat the country thould bo prosperous.
The farmers are the backbone of the country
and their condition is reflected in various de
grees in other Industries. When times were
, hard with them it was hard for everybody else.

I been away. I know that Mr. Low has been

. I can say nothing. I hadn't heard about tho

i by a reporter, a few minutes ago, so I can't talk
"Is there anything In the rumor that you and

1 "Absolutely nothing." he replied with a smile.
"I Love not even dicussod tueh a matter with
