Travis and Vardon Smashing Records
on the Links.
Corbett Arrives at Queenstown and
Denies His Wife's Charges.
Walter J. Travis, the present amateur and
New York golf champion, gave evidence
yesterday In the final for the chief cuo at
Tuxedo" that when necessary he has plenty
of reserve force. Pitted against Louis Liv
ingston, Jr., he not only won by 5 up and 4
to play, but knocked down all records, pro
fessional and amateur, by completing the
round In seventy-one.
The young Westbrook amateur, who last
year came within an ace of lowering Her
bert M. Harrlman's colors when the latter
was at the top of his game, stemmed the
tide as well as was possible, and under the
conditions any other amateur In the coun
try, except perhaps Flndlay Douglas, would
have had to acknowledge defeat at a much
earlier stage. And In sticking to such a
redoubtable player the less experienced
amateur proved beyond all question that ha
Is entitled to rank among the very best In
the country. But for bad luck to the home
hole Livingston would have followed closa
upon Travis' footsteps In the record-break
ing line, and his friends and the big crowd
which followed the match showered as
many congratulations upon him as on the
champion. Scores follow:
Travis, out 5 4 3 5 4 4 3 4 M?S.">
Livingston, out 5 4 4 5 4 5 4 5 4?40
Travis, in 4 4 3 3 5 4 4 4 .V-36?71
Livingston, In 4 4 3 4 5 4 2 4 0-36-76
In the semi-final round in the morning Mr.
Travis was pitted against E. M. Byers, the
young Yale representative, who on the pre
vious day had established a record of 75.
The champion proved e^'ial to the occa
sion, and, going out In 38. was 2 up at the
turn. The Yale representative, however,
stuck to his task, and playing the fifteenth
hole was 1 up. A fine four from Travis,
however, squared matters, and Byer*. una
ble to supplement his game of the previous
day for the.next two holes, lost the match
by 2 up and 1 to play. Score:
Travis, out 4 4 3 5 5 6 3 6 2?38
Byers, out 5 5 4 5 4 5 5 6 3-42
Travis, in 5 5 4 3 6 4 4 3 -35-73
Byers, In 4 4 3 4 5 5 4 5 ?34?76
Louis Livingston qualified for the final by
defeating George E. Armstrong by 3 up and
1 to play. The young Westbrook player
outclassed the Fox Hills representative, and
showed beyond question that the latter
should never have defeated him recently In
the first round for the Staten Island cham
American Cyclists Ahead.
The grand rare of the nations at Paris
yesterday was won by American cyclists.
Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Austria,
Belgium, France and Holland also com
peted, each country being represented by
three men. Cooper, McFarland and Banker
constituted the American team. The dis
tance was 1.500 metres.
In the preliminary heat America defeated
Belgium by eight points to thirteen, and in
the semi-final heat America won from
Italy by the same score.
The purse was 6,500 francs, divided Into
Individual prizes, and three prizes for the
wining team. The marking was by team
and by polntB.
The French team, composed of Jacquelin,
Bourrlllon and Loubet, disputed the final
with the Americans, the latter winning, al
though the French crack, Jacquelin, fin
ished first, in 2 minutes 17 1-5 seconds.
Cooper was second, McFarland third,
i Bourrlllon fourth. Banker fifth and Loubet
Ma her Too Much for Jeffords.
Peter Maher completely outclassed "Jim"
Jeffords of California In the two rounds of
what was to have been a six-round fight,
at the Pennsylvania Art Club, Philadel
phia, last night. At no stage of the fight
did the Callfornlan show any cleverness.
Maher scored his first knockdown in the
first round, with a left on the jaw. Jef
fords was evidently weak at the end of the
round and when he met the Irishman in
the second round Maher went at him and
scored three knockdowns In quick succes
It being evident that Jeffords could not
stand another punch, although he made
every effort to get to his feet, the referee
stopped the fight.
Harry Vardon Continues to Smash
Golf Records.
Harry Vardon made hla first acquaintance
yesterday with the picturesque links of the
Richmond County (N. Y.) Country Club.
This master of the game smashed all pre
vious records by completing the course In
74, which la six strokes less than any pre
vious effort.
In the morning Vardon played against A.
E. Paterson for the first nine holes, which
he negotiated in 36, two strokes better than
they had been played during the four years
members have been given the opportunity
of hammering away at them.
After luncheon the former champion met
for the outward Journey John R. Chadwlck,
the only Staten Islander who twice has
qualified and held his own In the amateur
championship. Mr. Chadwlck has recently
been off his wooden clubs, and from the
tee he tackled Vardon with a driving
mashle. This time the Britisher required
37. Continuing on the homeward Journey,
Vardon was tackled by Otis L. Williams,
last year's captain of the club, and in spite
of the fact that he had never seen the
last half before he polished them off In 37.
During the matches Vardon made two or
three gallery plays, which brought down
the substantial "house" following him. His
most brilliant shot was unquestionably his
second to the ninth hole, where, failing to
get a sufficient hook on hla tee shot, he
landed In the rough gross In a miserable
lie. In spite of this he took his brassy,
and, with only an opening through two
pins ten feet apart, he banged his second
?hot as true as a dart and landed within
twenty yards of the green.
In making the score he did Vardon failed
to hold anything approaching a long put,
and on several occa/fons he rimmed the
cup. His score for tne round In the after
noon was:
Out 5 4 4 3 4 4 3 5 5-37
In 4 4 4 4 8 4 6 4 4?37?74
In the first round In the morning A. E.
Patterson succeeded in halving three holes
and winning one. In the afternoon John R.
Chadwlck halved a hole and won one,
while for the last nine Otis Williams won
the last hole but one.
On the Lenox Links.
Samuel Frothlngham of the Lenox Club
won the Lenox cup yesterday at Lenox,
Mass., from H. W. Allen of Plttsfleld. It
was a hotly conteftted thirty-six-hole match.
Frothlngham winning by 4 up and 8 to
An open handicap tournament, unlimited,
over eighteen holes, was played yesterday
afternoon, thirty-two entering the contest
for a special cup given by the officers and
managers of the cltlb. S P. Shaw of Lenox
and J. McA. Vance of Plttsfleld tied on a
net score of 75, Shaw having a handicap of
11 and Vance 12.
