FOREIGN CARS TRAIL IN DUST American Inventor Outrages the "Conventions" at the Ormond Beach Races. New York Sun Special Service. Ui'inond. Fla.. .Tun. 27.There was grand racing ou the beach here yesterday. One rec ord was broken. Louis Ross, in the "beach skimmer." the novel isteamer of his own build, von two events, the Corinthian race for the Colonel Wier trophy, a race at the mile dis tance, owners driving, and the one milometer race for cars of 1,432 pounds to 2,204 pounds. Arthur MacDonald, the young Scotchman, took JIWB.V two victories, gaining the honors in the kilometer time trials and taking mvay also the trophy offered by 11. L. Bowden for the kilometer race. This trophy consists of a solid silver gold-lined punch bowl with cups to .match, and all in colonial style. The race between MacDonald in bis big 90 horse power Napier gasoline car and Ross in his 2 horse power steamer were the features of ihe day. Young MacDonald was somewhat sore over the early defeats, and in the Bowden trophy contest said that be would either strip his gears or best the "bug," as the car of Mr. Boss has come to be known. In this con test MacDonald got away to the rear, but worked in one gear after another until he was on high speed. He came up ou Ross Just at the kilometer and won out at the finish by but Uiree-flfths of a second. In the kilometer race for vehicles of 1,432 to 2.204 pounds Ross turned the tables and won by one-fifth of a sec ond over MacDonald. The kilometer time trials, which opened the dav, proved a victory for MacDonald, who turned off the distance in :23 as against the record of :21 3-5 held by Baras and made in a Dar nicq car In Europe. H. L. Bowden. in his huge 120 horse power Mercedes car, did :23 2-5 :\\\A Ross did :241-5, which is a sieam record. The races were all closely contested thruont. The driving of Louis Ross and clever head work shown by the Newton contractor who built the car, not for advertising but for fun in his own cellar, has been a feature of the meet. In the races he bas invariably secured the pole. In the final, while scoring up, Mr. Ross has driven slowly towards the tape, compelling the gasolene cars to slow down to keep in line. When the gun went off the Newton man pilckly threw on all power and again and again shot from his field. In other races he lms allowed the others to get away in the lead and then rushed up just in time to cross the tape even up, but going at a much higher rate of speed. The young millionaire owners of the big French cars that cost $15,000 or more have been put out a great deal by "bug," and Weuld like to see it out of the races, fftanmaries: One kilometer time trials, won by Arthur Mac Tonald 90-H.P.

The annual business meeting of the North western Curling association was held last even ing in the rooms of the St. Paul Commercial club and was followed by a banquet and smoker. The meeting was a quiet affair, no contests occurring over any of the subjects brought up. The association accepted the invitation of Du luth to hold the 1906 bonspiel ^there by a unani mous vote and officers for the" forthcoming year were elected as follows: PresidentJ. C. Myron, Nushka club, St. Paul. First Vice PresidentStephen Jones, Duluth. Second Vice PresidentJames MacCutcheon, Flour City club, Minneapolis. Secretary-TreasurerA. H. Smith, Duluth. Executive Committee!C. M. Griggs, Nushka club, St. Paul Dr. W. S. Fullerton, Onawa club, St. Paul R. J. McLeod, Duluth H. Burden, Dulutta. and J. O. Reichert, Duluth. In yesterday's play at the bonspiel Evan Rees' rink of Nnshka curlers captured the Merrlam medal, defeating the D. C. Murray rink from the same club, the score being 11 to 5. As this medal carries with it the state championship as well as four handsome scarf pins, It was much sought after and its capture is an honor for the young fellows on the Rees rink. The game of the day was the one between Rees and Griggs. It was the third time that the two have met and the second time during the bonspiel, Rees winning last Saturday 16 to 10, and Griggs on Monday 11 to 10. Yesterday's game broke up the tie, Rees winning easily, 13 to 7. This put Rees into the finals of the Canadian Soo trophy event with. W. H. Lightner, who defeated W. W. Lorimer of Minneapolis. 15 to 11, yesterday afternoon. Rees and Griggs came Together for the fourth time this morning in the fight for the international trophy.

The game was fast and clean and was won only by the excellent iteara work of flje local players. The score at the end of the first half was 18 to 6 in favor of Company C. A large crowd watched the game. A challenge has been sent from the girls' bas ketball teniu of the university to the girls' team of the University of Nebraska, and if arrange ments can be completed a game will be played between the two teams next week. Notwith standing the fact that the last game between the teams was played In Minneapolis last year, it is expected that the Nebraska team will come to Minneapolis for this year's contest. President Northrop will permit the girls' team to make only one trip away from Minneapolis a year, and as a trip to Fargo in March has already been arranged, the challenge of the Ne braska team to come to Lincoln for a game this year could not be accepted. The game with the girls' team of South Side high school Saturday evening at the university armory will be the first regular game on the girls' schedule. lined overcoats.

Ellsworth was considered an erratic pitcher at the University of Chicago, but had to his credit two victories in one season over Carl Lundgren, when the present colt was with the University of Illinois. Archie Stimmel. the Minneapolis- pitcher who was with the brewers the latter part of the sea son of 1903, will manage the Calumet club of the Copper Country league next season, says a Milwaukee special. Stimmel is under reserve by the Minneapolis club, but he was dissatisfied last year and said he would not play with that team again. Stimmel has agreed to go to Calumet for a sum nearly equal to his salary last year and he will only play two games each week* season in Chicago. Fur-Lined Overcoats Unusual Reductions.

He says: "I do not look favorably upon pulling off the championship fight scheduled for next June at Lansing. We don't want any such things in Michigan, and I don't think we will have them. I am not op posed to the boxing exhibitions similar to those which have been held in Grand Rapids and De troit, as I think they do no harm."
