London, June 'Jtl. Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, Secretary of State for the Colonies, mado an Important speech at Birmingham to night In roferenco to the Transvaal crisis, the kernel being a declaration that tho Uovernment aceeptod full rcspon elblllty for all that Sir Alfred Mllner. Ilrltlsh High Commissioner to South Africa, had done, and was detoiinlned to support him. Mr. Chamberlain contended that the mil government of the Transvaal was a festering sore that was poisoning tho whole, politi cal atmosphere of South Africa The manner in which Ilrltlsh subjects were oppressed and harassed Interfered with British prostlge among tho natives, who now regarded tho Transvaal as tho paramount power In that part of tho world. The position could not be allowed to remain Indellnitely as at ptesent. It had been said that patience and moral nresiuro would bring about a settlement. Ho devoutly prayed that they might, but over)' raau of sense must see that thoio might eome a timo when patience would bo hardly distinguishable fiom weakness and when moral pressure would be come a farce which could not be continued without loss of self-respect. Iln repudiated the suggestion that tho Uovernment was di vided on tho question, and said- " Wo are and havo been absolutely unani mous regarding the policy to be pursued Those who say there Is a party within tho Oovernment that desires war are guilty of a wicked and mischievous untruth. On tho other hand, those fnll into grievous error who think there Is a party within the Government, who, having nut their hands to the plough, will draw back So long as we have the conlldenco of Parliament and the eoun tiy we are responsible for tho time and method of action We will not be hurried on the one hniid and wo will not hold back on the other, but having undertaken this busi ness vvo will see It through." Mr Chamberlain added that ho did not be lieve anybody In Oreat llrltaln wanted tnquai rel with tlm Transvaal, but it vast majority recognized that the substantial grievances of tint I'ltlanders must bo redressed If he might judge from the Furopean and merlean press, he believed that If President Krllger re mained unapproschnble to argument he would not hayo a slnglo supporter in tho civilized world UEKMA.S VOU" I OK ARIttTRATlO.

PnrniiKF.r.PsiE. June'J'l. Theunlversltlos of Pennsylvania and Cornell shared oqtmtic hon ois on tho beautiful Hudson River cnurso this afternoon In two Intercollegiate races that wero looked at by thousands of enthusiastlo followers. The four-oarod crow of Old Tenn defeated Cornell's four In Impressive style over a two-nillo courto as a sort of preliminary, while tho freshman eight of Cornell towed ' away from tho youngsters of Columbia and Pennsylvania In their annual struggle ovor a similar distance. Tho weather condition were perfect, the water was all that could be desired, and both racs were magnificently contested. Tho four-oarod event wns the first of Ita kind In some years, and whlln It did not create much speculation or excitement beforehand. It served to work up the crowd on tho observa tion train, on the river banks and on the fleet r.f)nchts nnd small craft anchored near the finish, to a high pitch of enthusiasm. There suit ot this match was a surprise in that It had been reported that the Pennsylvania four was mtdoupuf almost green material, which had been rather haphazardly mouldod Into form by Coach F.llis Ward in tho last two weeks. Tho fact that coxswains wero not used created the belief that each crow had an equal chance ns to straight etoerlng, but Cornell was generally regarded as the probable winner became ol experience nnd thecareful Instruction of Coaoh Charles Courtney. It wa only a few moments after the tart, however, when the rowing ex perts appreciated tho fact that the Quaker had the stuff In them to pull out a victory, nnd when they took the lead before a hundred )nrdsof water had been covered It wa all over but the shouting. True It is that Cornell' four wero game to the marrow and rowed superbly against what was inevitable defeat, barring accidents, but the Philadelphia crow working like a well-oiled machine, swept on to the fin ish and won by a length and a quarter In 11 minutes l'J eeconds. The victory of the Cornell freshmen wa equally Improstlve. The troke oraployed by them wa the same that Courtney's crews have always shown It was smooth, well timed and I powerful, the shell lotlng no headway between ' pulls and the watermanship being as clean- cut at any critic could wish to see Almost from the start Cornell had a lead that could not be ovfJj-como, nnd the Ithaonns hold It so well in hand that they were never in rea! danger. Tlirydld very little spurting and seldom raised lhir stroke above thirty-four to the minute. They were easily a length and a half ahead at the finish and were so fresh that they turned their shell about deftly and proceeded quite a distance homeward before a launch picked them up The battle between Columbia and Pennsyl- ' vanla for second place was of tho hair-raising order until less than a mile of the finish, when the New Yorkers, in a vnllant effort to overhaul the Cornelllans. diow away and had two lengths the better of tho 'Junkers at the end Hut for more than halt tho distance after Referee Armstrong of Valo fired the starting gun the two crews fought desperately for second hnnois. There was hardly any difference betwoen them, first one linving a slight advantage, then the other Tho physical condition of the I'cnn sylvaulans, though, was what told in tho Inst rush, and, a they wero outclassed in tills ie sped by tho lilue and White, thero was noth ing left for them but the tall en I Columbia rowed finely, seldom losing thought of the coaching of Dr. Waiter Poet, and aiways came. So much dopendenco had been placed upon the crew that quite a bit of money was dropped tiv tlm Columbia adherents, who snapped up almost eveiy proposition b the Ithacnn bettors. There was no llnaticlnl backing be hind tho (Juaker four oi eight, most ot the Philadelphia monoy being ictervcd for to-morrow's 'varsity race Tho manage ment of both races was perfect, and, a it turned out, the handling of the ob servation train was satisfactory although at one time there was nothing hut protest from the sightseers because the train was run sever! miles up the road above thn start In order to let a through passenger train come down. Lack of llukas und accidents provided n real teat of tho merits of the crews, and that was to tho liking ol those who came hero to seo the sport. VVKVTIIF.U and vvTrn vkhfect There was only one source of worry among thus" dliectly Interested In tho success ot the races and that was smooth water. When the sun rosn thu sharps sniffed the air and looked at the sky Few clouds were to hn seen, and yet a light l-ruon came from the northwest. Thotur facoof the river was scanned for whltecaps, but as nothing could be seen but little ilpples and big patches ot calm water, tho oldest Inhabi tautsatsured the college bO)s that over)thing 6ocmed lovely Ml day observations were made with similar results, and when tho wind refused to blow up In the early afternoon there were expressions of delight on every tongue. Many college men had been In towu since Satuiday. and they had nosed around suffi ciently to have all the latest tips and pointer about the crews. Naturally thoy weia mag nets for the lata comers, who wanted to learn a'l that they could prior to making bets Sup porters of Coi noil and Columbia predominated nt tho various resorts, with quite a number of Pennsylvania men also in evidence. Hut theie watu t tho crowd that is looked for to-morrow, although tho mutter at the races exceeded expectations The strcots were in holiday attire us usual, tlm colors of tho dif ferent univirtlties fluttering from many points. 1 air women, accompanied by chape rons nnd dovoted escorts, walked up and down, talking of oars, shells, slldet. rudders and such things Thoy ap peared to know ns much about affairs nquatlo as the sporty joung gentlemen who wore golf capo, had their trousers turned up and smoked dangerous-looking bulldog pipes Of course the old graduates wero there They never keep nway. and wherever ono or twf of them could gut an audience rtcos ot days gone by
