f KK SPORTS. f TALENT IS DUMPED Africander's Viotory in the Subur- * ban a Sad Bow to the Bet ting Public. fe -Major Daingerfield and Heno, the First Choice, Killed Off , at Start. - After a terrlflo drive down the stretch at Sheepshead Bay yesterday, Africander, the grand 8-year-old colt of the Hampton stable, wo n the suburban handicap by a thead from gallant old Herbert. It was 'the first time a 3-year-old has won the classic event since its Inception in 1884, and the result was the more remarkable from the fact that until an hour or two before the race was won, Africander was given scant attention by the betters and by horsemen generally. ' The contest was marked by an unusual amount of bumping and fouling, and a claim of foul was made against African der by Odom, who rode Herbert, as soon as the Jockeys dismounted. The judges, however, decided to let the race stand as run. While no one oan detract from the excellence of the performance of the winner, there were several disappoint ing features in connection with the race. To begin with, W. C. Whitney's Gold smith, favorite in the future books, and Whitney and Duryea's Irish Lad, winner of the Brooklyn handicap, and up to a few days ago second choioe for the Amer ican Derby, were scratched. Both horses had been heavily backed and their with drawal caused great disappointment among the spectators. " Another disappointing feature was the fact that Major Daingerfield, who was favorite at the post, collided with Heno, second choice, immediately after the start. Martin and Bullman had to pull up to avert a serious acident, and this put both horses out of the race. Africander and Hunter Raine, who took third, were both knocked back in the"rush for the middle of the track at the start, but managed to extricate themselves from the pocket. Then Redfern, riding Hermis, took his horse to the front and made a killing pace ail the way to the -half mile. Whether the boy rode according to instructions Is not known, but he killed any chance the great 4-year-old might have had. The traak was fetlock deep in mud, and the impost of 128 pounds was too great for so small a horse as Hermis to carry over a heavy course. A t the half mile Hermis was tiring fast, and in the stretch he practically stopped, finishing far back in t^ie ruck. ' The going Just suited Major Dainger field, and had he had a good start he Would certainly have been a factor in the result. A s it was, Africander and Her bert overtook the tired Hermis at the half i'mile, and from that point the race was getwee the two. In the stretch African der carried Herbert wide, and they fought It out to the wire, Africander winning by a scant head. Hunter Raine, who had come from the rear in whirlwind fashion, was four lengths back, and Major Dain gerfield, after making a gallant fight to make up his handicap, landed six lengths behind Hunter Raine. The race was worth $16,690 to the own ers of Africander, Charles Dwyer and Simon Deimel, who also are reported to have made a killing in the future books, where they backed their colt from 100 to 1 to 50 to 1. The time of the race, 2:10 2-6, was the slowest since 1887, but creditable for the heavy track. Leading bookmakers said after the races that they had done a record-breaking business in the ring, not only in the sub urban handicap, but in all the other events. On the suburban Billy Cowan did ^he.largest business. H e took in $36,000 to the race and wo n $300 to it. Nearly all of the books lost money on the big event and also on the victories of Shot Gun and Ink. They won, however, in the double event and also on the last race. Africander was backed at the last mo - ment while the horses were at the post, his price dropping to 12 to 1. Pittsburg Phil took 12 to 1 at post time and cleaned up $20,000. George Considine was a $1 000 winner, Al Stokes took $25,000 from the ring, the largest winning of all. It la estimated that nearly $2,000,000 was bet on the suburban. Nineteen horses are now regarded as certain starters in the American derby , Saturday afternoon at Washington Park, Chicago. Instead of diminishing as the day for the race approaches, the probable field is Increasing. The race was never so open in Its his- - tory, despite the fact that Savable is still a 2 to 1 favorite. The annual "dark horse" forth e derby came to light yesterday afternoon. H e is Bonnie Burr, a 200 to 1 shot, owned by W. H. Sayre. The owner sent a message that the colt had been shipped from Cincinnati and announced him as a certain starter. , Nothing is known of Bonnie Burr here. He wo n a race as a 2-year-old. Fore and Aft, the winner of the Cum berland derby, who is regarded as a dan gerous candidate, received his derby work out yesterday over the Washington Park course. H e covered the mile and a half in 2:36 1-5 and did It handily with about 115 pounds up. ' Many of the derby candidates have been given so much racing that the usual final work-outs were not run yesterday morn ing. Claude was only galloped over the rotate. M. J.. Daly, who has already wo n three derbys with the colt, thinks the horse is one the edge right now. The fol lowing horses with their odds are put down as probable starters: - Savable, 2 to 1 Bernays, 8 to 1 Claude, C to 1 Judge HImes, 6 to 1 High Chan "cellor, 12 to 1 The Picket, 12 to 1 Dick Welles, 12 to 1 Au Revolr, 15 to 1 Lin guist, 15 to 1 Fore and Aft, 12 to 1 Gregor K., 15 to 1 Flo Carline, 15 to'1 Early, 25 to 1 Monsieur Beaucaire, 20 to 1 Ravel. 40-to 1 Gold Bell, 40 to 1 Col onade, 40 to 1 Bad News, 60 to 1 Bon nie Burr, 200 to 1. \ n * SHOOTING \ The grand western handicap shooting tourna ment closed yesterday at Denver.- The last event, the grand western handicap, was won by J. W. Garrett, of Colorado Springs, who made a , score of 94 out of a possible 100. Tolmaa was second with 03 Miller third with 00, and Hirschy, Plank and Plummer tied for fourth with 88. Beside the handicap there were five events of twenty birds each. F.

There was something like fraternizing on the river at Poughkeepsie yesterday when the crews of Columbia, Pennsyl vania and Wisconsin happened to get in each other's neighborhood, and the coaches and those with them on the launches had a favorable chance to see how their rivals were doing. The badgers were first on the water. CoachO'Dea ac companied his men on the launch Queen City and talked to them almost constant ly. The Wisconsin eight were just in front of the Pennsylvania boat house when the Quaker crews came out, and, after an exchange of salutations, Ellis Ward took his crews up the river while Wisconsin followed in their wake. The Columbia crews were coming up alorig the east shore. Their four, being in advance, fell in with the Wisconsin four. The two crews talked for a few minutes and then rowed away in opposite directions. oI f r O There was an unusual incident during the evening practice, wlien Pennsylvania and Wisconsin had an Impromptu' brush for a mile or so. Both crews were row ing up the river, the Quakers along the west shore and the badgers on the oppos ite side. Both crews rowed about thirty four, and if there was any difference at finish it seemed from the east shore to be in favor of Wisconsin, altho the partiz ans of Pennsylvania claimed a lead of four lengths. * e was made ?!! ? ?, r l"! nter l JP1* h, Flfty-flve h 8co by Otto Mathie, of Wausau, Wis., seventy-two , points out of a possible 100.

In the morning the varsity undertook to go over the course on time, but the shell, after going two miles, shipped so much water that they had to go in shore and empty it. In the after noon Wisconsin rowed down the river for four miles and return. G. M. Johnson was taken out of the freshman boat at v , . ^ - '&&&. No. 4 and Substitute Kennedy put in his place. Rowing up stream against a strong tide and only a light southerly breeze to as sist them, Yale's varsity eight went over the four-mile course at Gales Ferry last evening in 23 minutes and 43 seconds. Tale's freshmen were given light prac tice both morning and afternoon, rowing a mile stretch on time in the morning and going up stream to-night to practice rac ing starts. Hartwell's seat in the Harvard's vars ity four-qar was taken by Ober yesterday as the latter was absent in Cambridge.

RUST ON THE RELIANCEand Corrosion Starts on Hull of Newhas Cup Defender Causing Some ' Uneasiness. The Reliance had her new topmast set up yesterday and is all ready for the race of the Indian Harbor Yacht club to-day. It has been reported that the corrosion has been started on the Reliance. The Scientific American of this week says: "It was noticeable when the yacht was hauled out at City Islaild that a large number of rivets under the bow and butt joints of the plating were clearly defined by circles and lines of red rust. Now, since the plating and the rivets are of bronze, the rust could not have come from them but must have worked thru from the nickel stool frames on the inside of the hull. It could only have come from the frames by virtue of the fact that the whole structure was working sufficfently to al low the salt water to get thru at the rivets. "Now, the Reliance has never experi enced anything stronger than a fresh sum mer breeze, and if her hull Is working under these conditions it becomes an in teresting question as to what will happen when that tremendous sail plan is driv ing her at full pressure into a heavy sea off Sandy Hook. This condition, how ever, may never occur, and the great boat may be favored with moderate winds and seas, under which she would seem on her showing so far to be perfectly certain of defeating her coming antagonist." TETOIS The Mtnnetonka club tennis team will play n match with the Town and Country club of St. Paul on the Town and Country courts to-morrow afternoon. Six matches in Angles and three in doubles are scheduled. George Belden, Harry Belden, Charles Hale, W. C. Burton and two other players will compose the Minnetonka team. A return match will be played on the Minnetonka courts at Deephaven later. A round robin tournnment for the club cham pionship will be started at Minaetonka, probably next week. Sixteen or eighteen players are ex pected to enter. GOLF The Minlkahda j olf team will play the Lafay ette club team on the Lafayette links at Minne tonka to-morrow afternoon.

The cup challenger Shamrock III. arid her trial boat, the Shamrock I. were suc cessfully docked at New York yesterday. Shamrock III. is a very wholesome type of boat and as such she came in for lots of praise from those who saw her. Her model does not show that she has the power that she has shown in her trials, but she has plenty of beam, a full body and her lead is bulked and carried very low. Her lines are easy and fair. She 1 is a fuller bodied boat than any that has raced for the America's cup in many years it will be Interesting to see what she can do. Herreshoff and Fife have worked on very different lines. John Hyslop, who measured the cup challenger and de fenders for many years carefully studied the yacht and was very much impressed with her model. H e said: "She should be a very easy boat to drive and she does not show the power she evidently pos seses. She has a very different section from anything that they have brought out before. She is a wonderfully modelled obat, absolutely fair and beautifully fin ished." mQ^rmmr&^mmmimmga Men's Coolest Suits Fine Worsted Trousers, Either dark or light colors with very neat and thoroughly stylish stripes and designs.
