Yale's ''Varsity Eight Too Much for
the Harvard Crew.
Vale Freshmen Alio Win—Harvard
Takes the Four-Oared
Amid the roar of cannon, the deafening
Whistling otf steam craft and the hoarse
cheers of 25,000 persons, Yale's varsity
eight yesterday won a most sensational
boat race from Harvard on the historic
Thames at New London, Conn. It was
anybody's race up to the last half mile,
and then superior staying qualities gave
the victorty to the sons of old Eli. Yale
"won by a scant two lengths in 23:37, with
Harvard, exhausted, eight seconds behind.
It was nip and tuck for nearly two miles,
the Harvard crew making a splendid show
lag and apparently having enough reserve
force to win at the finish.
As the boats approached the two-mile
mark, Yale's coxswain steered into the
still water close to the dock and the crew
at once hit up a killing clip. The Crim
sons were then leading but with a dozen
or more strokes the Blues drew abreast of

crew held its own gamely almost to the ]
finish, when .Yale, forged to the front un- i
der the greater impetus of surplus energy
and flashed over the line winner h»v an
easy margin.
Yale men were beside themselves with
delight over the result, especially as Har
vard appeared to have the race In hand.
The slow time was due to the fact that
both crews played a waiting game for the
first two miles. Both lowered their
strokes so that at times they were not
more than thirty to the minute. In the
; finish, Yale hit the stroke up to thirty
six. - :,-!-:". . „-, ■■
Yale's time at the half mile was 2:39;
Harvard's 2:38 2-5. ,: - \
Yale's victory is attributed in part to the

was in a state of collapse at the finish.

Yale won the freshmen's event by four

was victorious in the four-oared contest
by six lengths in 11:49 1-5. .

van and H. O. Messier of Minneapolis at Win
nipeg, Tuesday night. Both men were at the

the series. "Dad" Clark went bump again
as on the previous day and was kindly led
to the club house before he was ham
mered Into a shapeless effigy. Bones
Parvin went in to finish the game, but
it was already finished, as the millers
could not overcome the four runs which
Clark contributed.
What Ream has was not plain to be
seen. Nevertheless the millers with the
exception of McCredie and Brashear
could make nothing mare than send up
some easy little pop-ups or else perform
the great fan act with their sticks. The

the gatherings of the Northwestern league,
of the lowa State association, and of the
Ohio-Indiana-Michigan tristate associa- •
tion, if the dates do not conflict with his i
other appointments. It is also possible |
that he will be in Buffalo early in August, j

games between him and Lasker at Chicago
had fallen through. He was perfectly
ready to play the world's champion and
was willing to accept the terms of the
Universities' Chess club, under whoso
auspices they were to have pleyed, but
ihe fact that both the principals were not
en the ground at the same time when the
terms were being discussed prevented this
interesting affair from coming off. Speak
ing of the annual team match between
the New York and Pennsylvania Chess
associations which, it is expected, might
take place at Buffalo, the champion
thought it Improbable that the Pennsyl
vanlans would send a term to the New
York meeting on tbis occasion.

Glasgow, June 28. —In addition to the
new spars replacing those lost in the
Solent, Shamrock 11. has a new boom
which is lighter than the old one. Local
experts regard the challenger as over
stiff, and say she will need all- the pro
posed extra sails spread to make her
heel satisfactorily. ■• Although there ■ was
no attempt at a race, the challenger had
one turn with Shamrock 1., in which she
moved in a fashion that gave reason for
expecting that when she appears in her
racing trim ■_> she will v show finer sailing
than she has yet accomplished.
