length ahead of the men from Stanford.
Syracuse was a splendid third, a length
back of the Callfornl.ins. Columbia, out-

place, a length ahead of Pennsylvania.

It was a KTcat day for Cornell, one
that deserved tho tremendous cn
thuslasm of the thousands who flaunted
the lied and White. The master coach

varsity crew that compares favorably
ulth any of his great machines of the
past, hut he furnished as well tho win

won by a length and a half by Cornell
after a beautiful contest every yard of
the two mile course, but Syracuse cap
tured the freshman race rather easily,
ipecdlng oer the finish line five full
lngths ahead of Cornell, with Columbia
third and Pennsylvania fourth.

Mrs. tlrace Fox, whose husband. William
II, Fox, Is one of the New York managers
of the National Cash Register Company
and a brother of Delia Fox. the actress,
died early last evening In the Knicker
bocker Hospital of twenty stab wounds
mysteriously inflicted while she was
alone and only partly dreMfd In her
apartment at Beacon Hall, 6lS-fl21 West
1 12d street.
The hospital authorities asserted that
It was almost lnio'slble for any one
to Inlllct such wounds about the neck,
shoulders and cars on oneself. Ap
parently a sharp penknife had been used
In the stubbing, but. Inspector Faurot
and half a dozen men of the homicide
squad, who conducted a minute search
ubout the apartment for several hours
last night, could not And any such
weapon. They were absolutely non
plussed. "From what I have seen of the case
thus far." said Inspector Faurot, when
he left Beacon Hall to continue his In
vestigation by a further examination
of tho woman's body nt the Morgue,
"I am inclined to think It Is a suicide,
but we cannot find any knife. That Is
the puzzling feature of the case."
The Fox apartment Is so situated,
however, that It would be easy for an
Intruder to get In and out of the place
without being seen. The bedroom win
dow near which the woman was found
semi-conscious at the time, opens on a
tiro excape which leads down to an
open courtyard three floors below. The
courtyard abutn on an open lot, through
which ono might escap undetected.
Phone ('nil Glrre Alarm.
Sam, the negro elevator boy In the
big six story apartment, received th
first word that Mrs. Fox was In trouble.
Atwwering a call at the telephone
switchboard he heard Mrs. Fox In e
faint voice ask for help. But he got
no response to his rapping on her door
He says he then peered under the dooi
nnd through the crack could see blood
stains on the floor. That was at 6:2(
The superintendent, William Beagle,
summoned by Sam, forced an entranci
Into the apartment a few minutes latei
and found Mrs. Fox covered with blood
She lay on the bed, dressed in a night
gown oer a chemise.
"I hurt myself," the woman moaned
seml-conselously, but Beagle's further
questions elicited no response.
When Policemen Kinney nnd Coognn
of the West 152d street station arrived
irs. I'ox was unconscious. Dr. Fras
caolla of the Knickerbocker Hospital
counted no less than twenty wound
nbout the shoulders, neck and head. He
hurried her to the hospital, where an
hour later she died. .Mr. Fox, hastily
called from his ofilce In Fourteenth
street, reached her side a few minutes
beforo her death and he said she told
"A man attneked me, An agent came
to the door. He stabbed me."
Although the first jiollcc report of the
occurrence Mated that Mrs. Fox. who was
42 years old, had committed suicide, the
arrival of Inspector Faurot and detec
tives of tho homicide squad at once
supported the theory that some one had
entered the apartment nnd attacked her.
Tho police would not say even after
their long search that it waa not a mur

Inspector Faurot and his aids stayed
In the apartment until after 11 o'clock

said that Mrs. Fox was In tho bath

ALL DANGER OF A BREAK THOUGHT ENDED
Wasiiinoto.v. June 2S. Officials nt
the State Department made It known
to-day that Ambassador Gerard has re
ported that Indications In Uerlln are
that thTOerman reply to President Wil
son's note on the submarine Issue will
The details of Ambassador Oerard's
report, the first on the subject since the
receipt of the President's, note In Mer
lin, were not disclosed by Department
officials and It Is not known whether
or not he forecasted the probable terms
of the coming derman note. He did
not Indicate when the note would be
sent forward, but the expectation here
Is that It will be about ten days at least
before the Oerman note Is received,
The Ambassador's prediction that the
note -would be "favorable" Is not re-
gnrded as meaning that the German
Government has decided to grant the de
mands of President Wilson In regard to
her submarine operations. It Is Inter
preted only as Indicating that the atti
tude of the German Government Is most
friendly and conciliatory and that Ger
many will endeavor to submit propositi,
for an adjustment of the situation such
ss the United States can arcept.
Officials now feel confident that all
danger of a break between the two Gov
ernments on the submarine Issue Is prac
tically over as long as Germany con
tinues In whnt Is understood to be her
present frame of mind.
Publicity a .Surprise.
That the State Department should
have made known the purport of Am
bassador Gerard's despatch is regarded
as significant in Itself. Heretofore It
has been secretive with respect to hut
communications en the submarine ques
tion. In view of the general agreement
that Germany does not contemplate con
ceding to the United States anything
more than a proposal for safeguarding
American lives under certain conditions
the statement of officials to-day that
a "favorable" German reply may be
expected Is taken to mean that any
reply which averts a break, 'though It
does not satisfy the President's demands,
would be classed In tho "favorable"
As a matter of fact, It Is generally
admitted here that provided there are
no further submarine attacks that Im
peril American lives the Issue Is no
longer to be regarded as one endan
gering the good relations of the two
Government, and that n discussion of
It Is likely to continue from now on
until the end of the war.
According to Information received
bete, Germany will propone to the United
States the Institution of a s.vstem of
certification and Identification of Amer
ican vessels not carrying any contra
band of war Germany, It Is under
stood. Is willing to pledge herself not
to attack any such vessels with her
A month ago official declaied that
any such proposal would fall utterly to
meet the Issue and Indicated that it
would be entirely unacceptable to th
Unlted States. There now Is reason to
believe that the President would at least
make a reply to such a proposal, thus
probably opening the way to further dls.
The Blockade Peature.
The second feature of the German
reply will be a renewal of her Invitation
to the United States to eliminate the
menace of the German submarine opera
tions by getting Great Britain to adop
a less restrictive policy with regard to
trade between Germany and the outside
world. It Is known that the German
note will dwell at great length on Ger
many's grievances against Kngland on
the sea and call upon the United States
as the defender of neutral rights to etll
upon Great Britain to respect thesr
Germany has all along Insisted that
she was ready to abandon her submarine
operations as soon as the Hrltlsh would
permit food and raw materials to enter

President Is any more willing now than
he was several weeks ago to speak f
Great Britain on behalf of Germany In
this regard or bargain for the respect
of American rights. He has offered,
however, to transmit to Great Hrltal i

Gerard has noted In Ilerlln. It Is be

them of the wImIoiu of a conciliatory
attitude on the submarine Issue.

to cover the entire field of the rights of

Washington, June 2S. Publication
of the text of the American note, sent
to Germany on June 24 with regard
to the case of the American four masted
ship William P. Frye. sunk by the Ger
man auxiliary cruiser Prlnz Ultcl Fried
rich last January, disclosed the. fact
that the controversy Tiis become one
regarding the Interpretation of th
treaty of 1S2S between tho United States
Indirectly, by virtue of certain claim
nindo by the German Government as to
her right to sink neutral vessels carry
ing contraband, tho correspondence, also)
Is coming to have a bearing on the Is
sues Insulted In the submarine que
tlon. The note,, made public here to-day,
how the United States for tho second
time taking exception to tho German
plan of having the Frye case settled In
a prize court. Tho United States re
news Its demand for tho payment ot
Indemnity, the amount of which It as
serts should be ngreed upon in direct
negotiations between the two Govern
ment. Attains! n 1'rUe Court.
It Is made clear tn the note that
the United States will have nothing tn
do with any prize court proceedings
which the German Government may In
stitute In the Frye case.
The stand of the United Slates In till
case rests wholly upon the provision
of the treaty of 1S2S. which, as Ger
many herself admitted In the first ex
change nf notes on the subject, ten
dered her liable to pay an indemnity
for the destruction of the Frye.
Germany having been tho first to In
voke this treaty as still In force and
applying to this lsue, the State De
partment Is trying to hold her to the
ground sin- has taken. The Issue la
thus summed up by Secretaiy Lansing;
In his latest note:
"Tho real question between the two
Governments Is what reparation must
be made for a brench of treaty obliga
tions, and that Is not a question which
falls within the Jurisdiction of a prize
It Is said furlhtr that the United
States Government "i.nnmt icengnizn
the pioprlJiy" of submitting the Frye
claim to a German prUe court for set
tlement Tin- Niiliiiiiirlni llucNl Inn,
Secretary Lansing also dlj-st'nts must
lgoroiisl fiom claims put forward by
Germany In the note to which hl com
munication Is a iepl. to the fleet that
the treaty of 1S2.S ghes elilur par.y
the right to destro a itl belonging
to the other party when carrying con
traband, if it is not piactlcahlf to stop
the contiab.ind In any other way.
This I the contention which has been
regarded hero an bearing upon Get
many's submailne operations. It N be
lieved here that tin- German Govern
ment Is seeking to have the prize court
tevlew tho provisions of the treaty ot
1 S2S In the hope of getting a court de
cision which will strengthen her posi
tion In regard to thu destruction by
submarines of m utral ships carrying
contraband. Repl.h.g to thl.s conten
tion Mr. Lansing says'
'The Government of the United
Stntes cannot concur lu this conclusion
On the contrary, It holds that these
treaty provisions do not authorize the
destruction of a Hernial vessel In any
circumstances lly its ixpiess terms
the treaty prohibits even tho detention
of a neutral vesrel earn lug contraband
If the master of the vessel is willing
