DEMOGEOT WINS
THE CUBAN RAGE
Bad Smashes Mark the Sharp
Turns in the Speed
Course.
Havana. Feb.- 18.Victor Demogeot, the Win
ner at Orniond, Fla., of the title of the world's
speed king, earned another triumph yesterday
by winning the Cuban cup In the second inter
national road race. The victory was gained
In the same machine which, driven by Heniery,
won the two great road events of last year, the
Ardennes circuit in France and the Vanderbilt
cup race on Long Island. It was the lightest
machine In yesterday's race, being only eighty
horsepower, the others being respectively 90 to
115.
Altho all three of Demogeofs competitors In
yesterday's main race were either stopped by
accident or failed to finish within the time
limit, Demogeofs great speed was fairly main
tained thruout, resulting In maintaining the
reputation of the Cuban road as being among
the world's fastest. Despite the drawbacks of
thrjee controls, sharp corners into the town of
Marlanao, the close crowding by the excited
populace at the curving points, he made in the
first half an average of 614-5 miles per hour.
The average miles per hour for the entire 217%
miles was 50.17, which was within 1% miles
of the Vanderbilt cup race average.
Lancia, as usual, made the most sensational
speed of the day, going, it was claimed, upwards
of seventy miles an hour, so fast that his rid
ing partner, Battesk, was thrown out at the
curve near Artemlsa and suffered a fractured
arm. Lancia then quit the race and conveyed a
physician to the aid of the injured man.
Cedrino's machine overturned In the same
vicinity on the first lap. Cedrino, who was
Injured internally, was conveyed to the city last
night, where it Is reported he is recovering.
His machinist also was hurt.
American Is Companion.
Bernin, the driver of the only other car
vr'nich returned to the starting point near Camp
Columbia,failed to complete the round trip with
in the time limit. For the second half of the
race Demogeofs competitors were three local
gasolene racers. Demogeot said he would not
need to push matters. However, he lost several
minutes ,at the start and thereafter drove at a
speed which enabled him to pass only one-of his
local competitors, who had gotten ahead of him,
before the second village was out of sight.
Thruout the remainder of the last half Demo
geofs speed nearly equalled that of the first
half. The fact that Charlie Harragh. an Ameri
can, rode with Demogeot heightened the local
Interest and intensified the roar of welcome
which greeted him when for the fourth time the
winning car rounded the curve and rushed at top
speed past half a mile of cheering people in the
box and on the roadside stands.
The winner of the minor race, which was only
half the distance of the main event, was Des
Sanssols, a Frenchman, who drove a thirty
horsepower automobile over the 108% miles in
twelve minutes slower than Demogoet, not ex
cluding, however, Demogeofs delay at the start.
Des Sanssols beat BIrk, his nearest competitor,
by nearly ten minutes. Bllck, the other con
testant, finished half an hour later.
Congratulated by Palma
Both winning Frenchmen were escorted before
the grandstand near the box of President Palma
and his family and showered with congratula
tions.
There will be short races today. Yesterday's
summaries:
Main race, 217% milesDemogeot, eighty
horsepower, won, time 3:38:18 3-5 Bernin,
ninety-horsepower, did not finish the first half
within the time limit Lancia, 110-horsepower,
and Cedrino, 100-horsepower, did not- finish the
first lap on account of accidents.
Minor race, 108% milesDes Sanssois, thirty
horsepower, won, time 2:04:32 BIrk, forty
horsepower, second, time 2:14:22 Bllck, thirty
horsepower, did not finish within the time limit.
Lancla's machinist, .Battesta, is believed to be
injured more seriously than was at first thought,
and Lancia is with him at Artemisa. Cedrino,
who was brought to Havana, is expected to"
recover speedily. His machine Is badly smashed.

MacLean Horse Faces Half Mile
on Ice in 1:05%Other
Events Speedy.
i
A half mile on the ice in 1:05% was the
surprising pacing feat of William D. MaeLean's
Prince Stevens in the Lake of the Isles matinee
yesterday. Finishing second in the first heat,
George Loomis gave the Prince the reins in the
succeeding numbers of the free-for-all pace, and
the horse nosed In first In three consecutive
heats, gaining a good hold on the Savage cup.
Tho the record of Prince Stevens overshadowed
the^ other events of the day, the entire program'
was a succession of surprises, fast fields and
fast time predominating thruout. The free-for
all trot event of the Sherman cup series was
taken by McLean's Silver, who finished first In
the three heats. The first two heats were of
the 1:11 and a fraction order, and would have
sufficed for features on an ordinary day.

GOPHER RULES MAKER
BACK FROM NEW YORK
Dr. H. L. Williams, Minnesota's representa
tive on the football rules committee, returned
from the New York conference today.
"There was little new, aside from the accounts
of the meeting reported by the press associations
Sunday morning," said he. "The rules, as they
now stand, are more of a tentative affair, and
final action will not be taken before March 10.
The meeting scheduled for March" 3 has been
postponed until the date named."
The gopher coach does not care to discuss the
mles just now, but is probably still opposed to
the ten-yard rule. In a recent issue of
change. He also declined to discuss the action
of the university council in adopting the recom
mendations of the big nine football reformers.
FIFTY ODT TO TRY
FOR BASEBALL TEAM
Fifty university students appeared in the ar
mory yesterday afternoon and announced their
intention of trying for places on the university
baseball team. The men were met by Coach
"Spike" Anderson, who in a short talk outlined
a system of indoor training which he will rigor
ously enforce in an effort to get the men in
perfect condition for outdoor work.

Andersoun into three and these divisions

The feature of the bonspiel to date is unques
tionably the great work of the Braden rink.
They have now won fourteen straight games,
draw today, what should prove one of the best
games of the bonspiel takes place when Braden
and Dunbar meet in the Empire. If- Braden wins
the game he will have the grand aggregate vir
tually cinched, and even if defeated he will
have the best chance of carrying off the bon
spiel championship, as he is now in the eighth
of the Dingwall and Empire, and the thirty
twos of the Teley. Flavelle was put out of the
Dingwall yesterday by Dunbar, but is still in
the Empire, and Tetley and Bob are also in these
two events. Curling in its highest form of ex
cellence was exhibited by the Rocbon-Rennie
rinks yesterday, when they met In the Ding

Journal Special Service.
New York, Feb. 13.Murray Howe, secretary
and treasurer of the Memphis Trotting associa
tion, on whose complaint the Memphis gold
cup was taken from Elmer E. Smatbers a few
days ago at his apartments in the Pierrepont,
consented yesterday to throw additional light on
the charges against turfmen.
"The public must not get the impression that
this suit has been brought against Mr. Smathert
precipitately," said Mr. Howe. "When the case
comes up In the courts we will produce evidence
to prove the truth of our assertion that Smath
ers entered into a conspiracy to drug or disable
Lou Dillon so that Smathere' horse. Major Del
mar, could defeat her for the trqtting champion
Ship of 1904, and win the Memphis gold cup.
Was in Condition.
"Millard Sanders, trainer and driver for Mr.
Billings, brought the mare out on the day of the
race and gave her two warming-up heats. She
seemed to be in the very pink of condition. But
the minute the mare came out on the track for
the first beat I knew there was something wrong.
"Mr. Billings then got up behind her. On
the first score down the mare and Major Delmar
were off. The wonderful courage of Lon Dillon
kept her from going for the first half, but that
was the end of It for her, and Major Delmar
came home as lie pleased. His time was 2:07,
and that of the mare 2:16. And yet she bad
time and again beaten the two-minute mark
ever the same track.
"Judges Suspicious."
"Before the second heat the judges sent for
Lou Dillon and her owner and driver. They ex
amined her carefully and then sent for a veteri
nary surgeon. He looked the mare over and said
she was not suffering from 'thumps,' but had a
bad case of heart palpitation. He said it would
be very dangerous to Btart her In another heat.
Mr. Billings, however, refused to withdraw the
mare. He said he would jog her around the
track with Major Delmar, and let him win the
cup and race as he pleased.
"From that day to this I have been collecting
the evidence to prove the truth of the charges
against Mr. Smathers."
