TWO FAVORITES
WON AT SHEEPSHEAD"
NF.W YORK. June 23?Thousands of dol
lars were burned up by Roseben In the
Coney Island Handicap, six furlongs, at
Sheepshead Bay yesterduy. The big sprint
er picked up 143 pounds and was made a
hot favorite at 7 to 6. As Lyne was un
der suspension, little Miller had the leg
up. There was a delay at the post caused
by the misconduct of Halifax, and when
the barrier finally went up Roseben was
pinched off. Still, when he got clear, he did
not show his old speed and was never able
to overhaul the pacemakers and finished In
third place. T. C. McDowell's King's
Daughter, a 20 to 1 shot, made all the run
ning and won rather easily by a length In
1.12 2-5. She would have been beaten, no
doubt. If O'Neill had put up any kind of a
ride on H I'. Whitney's Prince Hamburg,
l'l to 5, who took the place under his own
courage by two lengths from Roseben.
When the barrier was raised for the Daisy
Stakes, for two-year-olds, five furlongs on
the grass. Shaw appeared to take up Ken
tucky Beau, a heavily backed favorite at
IS to who had no chance to win there
after. R. T. Wilson. Jr.'s. Red River, 7 to 2,
cut out a fast puce meanwhile and won
with ridiculous ease by four lengths in
1.02. August Belmont's Okenite, coupled
with Rosemount, at 13 to 5. ran Into the
place two lengths in front of Kentucky j
Beau.
Easy for Bat.
II. P. Whitney's Bat, backed down to 2 to
1 favorite, had an easy time winning the
second ra> e at a mile. Radtke cut liim loose
at the far turn, where he ran over W. H.
Brown's King Henry, 13 to 5. and then
breexed to the wire with a margin of three
lengths over H. Duryea s MuKlttredge, sec
ond choice, who nipped the place from King
Henry by a nose in the last Jump. Shaw's
dilatory tactics on McKlttredgw caused a
gr.^at ileal of harsh comment. The mile was
timed in 1 Au 1-9.
K R Thomas's Toddlee, 13 to 5 favorite,
walked off with the first race a five fur
long J-ash for two-year-old Allies. She won
In a gallop by three lengths after leading
all the way R. H MoCarter Potter's Dul
ctnea. 23 to 1. took the place by two lengths
from l?ouls Cells'* Miss Strome, backed
down to 4 The time was 1:011-3.
After n aking the pace for nearly a mile
In the handicap at nine furlongs. James R.
Keene's Von Tromp 13 to 10 favorite, curled
up and Fred Burlew a Samson, 8 to 1, went
to the front It took Samson s life, however,
to beat Maxnar. 3 to 1, by a head, as the
latter was gaining rapidly at the end. Von
Trump was a length away. The time was
i aa 2-5
The last race, at a mile and a sixteenth on
the turf, went to Tartan, a good thing,
backed down to 7. who beat Just So, 20 to 1.
by a length, with Telephone. 6 to 1. a length
and a half back Far West, the favorite,
was nowhere. Four favorites lost and the
ring won a good slied bunch. The attend
ance was all of I&.ujO.

SYSONBY'S SKELETON
FOR AMERICAN MUSEUM
NMW TOPvK, June ZJ ? James R. Keene
has not yet decided what disposition shall
be made of the body of Sysonby. which t?
buried near the stable at Sheepshead Bay
which for two years sheltered the race
torse. Friends of Mr. Keene said yester
day, however, that he probably would have
the skeleton of the horse mounted and pre
sent It to the American Museum of Natural
History
Mr Keen* would thus emulate the ex
ample of W. O B McDonou*ti. who, when
his great horse, Ormonde, died, sent nls
mounted skeleton to the British Muaeum tn
London. Other noted horse* have been sim

BIG 'VARSITY
CREWS RACE TODAY
Sp*fUl Dispatch to The SUr.
POUGHKEEPSIE, N. Y., June 28.-Over
the beautiful tour-mile atralght-away
course on the Hudson river today will be
held the annual regatta of the Intercolle
giate Rowing Association, with Georgetown,
Syracuse. Cornell. Columbia. University of
Pennsylvania and Wisconsin as the 4onte*t
ants in the 'varsity elght-oared event,
which will decide the college aquatic cham
pionship of the year. This race will be the
third on the day's program and will not be
started until 0 o'clock, or even later, if tide
and wind conditions are not favorable at
the scheduled hour. The result will be
known some twenty minutes after the
starter's pistol has sent the shells away on
their heart-breaking Journey. The start
will be made three miles above the gaunt
steel bridge, which spans the Hudson at
this point, hundreds of feet in the air. The
finish will be one mile below the structure
at a point where, early today, scores of ex
cursion steamers, yachts and all manner of
pleasure and observation craft cast anchor.
The first event of the afternoon will be
the 'varsity four-oared race at two miles.
In which the contestant* will be Cornell,
Syracuse. Columbia and Pennsylvania. This
racc is set down for decision at 4 o'clock.
Th > second race will be started forty-five
minutes later and will be for elght-oared
crews of freshmen from Cornell, Wiscon
sin, Syracuse. Columbia and Pennsylvania.
The freshmen will also row over the short
two-mile course, starting one mile above
tho big bridge.
Poughkeepsie Crowded.
This little city, nestling In the green hills
on the east bank of the river. Is filled today
with college men* young and old, who have
come to see the races. Summer girls are
here in their prettiest frock*. Without
them the regatta would hardly be worth
rowing. Everywhere the college colors are
In evidence. Georgetown is not wanting
for friends In thla respect. Oray and blue
bunting Is most conspicuous In the general
color scheme. Georgetown Sag* flutter
from scores of canes and parasols gayly
waved by young men and women. Long
streamers of blue and gray ribbons float
from the coat lapels of young student* and
from the corsage bouquets oi the pretty
girls who accompany them. Everywhere In
the wild riot of red, which predominate*
the college colors of the crews represented
In this year's regatta, the more modest
colors of Georgetown are to be noted.
The Georgetown crew will go Into the big
'varsity race this afternoon In as flt con
dition as careful training and earnest efforts
have been able to contribute to such an
end. Coach Dempsey gave the men their
last rowing exercise this morning. Their
stay on the water was of a brief duration
and was Intended simply as a warming-up
exercise, much as thoroughbred race horses
are prepared for a notable event on the
turf. The crew was to have had a good
hard spin over two miles of the four-mile
course yesterday afternoon, but the weather
was so blustering at the rowing hour and
the Hudson was chopped up Into such
a heavy sea Dempsey did not deem it wise
to risk either men or shell on the water.
Dempsey Confident.
"We have a good crew," said Dempsey
this morning, "and I will be much disap
pointed If we do not figure prominently In
the race. The struggle thla afternoon will
be the hardest seen In years over the
Poughkeepsie course. I have been watch
ing all the crews steadily since coming hero,
and their chances seem more evenly match
ed than any lot of college oarsmen ever
entered In an American regatta. The row
ing men who are here from all parts of the
country tell me the Georgetown boys are
displaying better watermanshlj) and are
working better In their boat than last
year's crew. Whether or not we have the
same bulldog courage to fight out the finish
as we did last year and secure third place
remains to be seen, Tlie stamina that may
be in a crew is never developed until the
crucial stages of the contest arrive. Then
one weak man at an oar may upsot every
thing. If my boys do as well as we did
last year we will all be mighty well pleased
at ourselves.
"Since coming here a week ago yesterday
the eight has Improved wonderfully. The
cool, bracing atmosphere here simply
brought them up wonderfully. Then, too,
the cessation of study and the opportunity
to row when we pleased made a wonderful
difference. Altogether, the folks who last
saw us row on the Potomac would not
know the crew that Is going Into the boat
this afternoon. There will be no change of
personnel whatever, but the men have been
keyed up until they are right on edge. We
have had no sickness or anything to ham
per us in our final days of preparation.
"I look to Pennsylvania this afternoon to
surprise some of the sharps. This crew has
always bad strength In the boat. This year
they know how to row a* well and the
combination Is a dangerou* one, but Cornell
has a splendid eight. Syracuse is stronger
than ever; Wisconsin has a veteran crew
men who know how to go about their
tasks from first to last, and Columbia is
admittedly in better shape this year than
last. The struggle, therefore, must be a
keen one, and the best crew ought to win."
The splr.t among the Georgetown crew
Is one of do ">r die. The men are confidently
predicting that they will finish "Inside tho
money." and a'e wagering that they will.
The eight Is looked to put up {he same
game struggle tl:at has characterised the
Blue and Gray boat* of the past.
MISS SUTTON IN
LEICESTER FINALS
LONDON, June 23.? At the open lawn ten
nl* tournament at Leice*ter yesterday Miss
Sutton reached the final tn the ladiee' sin
gles.
The American lady, hitting with great
nerve and confidence, won the first set

Miss Sutton next easily defeated Mis*
Morton in the semi-final In the mixed
double*. However, Miss Sutton and H. L.

Yacht Meteor and Wins.
Emperor William yesterday sailed his
yacht Meteor against the German yacht
Hamburg and the British built yacht Clara

Meteor over the line and remained at the
wheel until the yachts were out of sight. !
A fresh breeze was blowing at the start. I
The course was thirty-three miles.
The yachts finished as follows: Meteor, 3
hours 34 minutes 28 seconds; Hamburg, 3 I
hours 30 minutes 42 seconds; Clara, 8 hours
4V) minutes 46 seconds.

large yachts were sailed over the same
course, which was triangular, and finished
at short Intervals after the Meteor, which

BOWING UNDEB DITPICTJLTIES.
West Using a Borrowed Shell at Hen
ley.
Herry West of Philadelphia, who is on
tere< for the diamond sculls at the coming '
regatta at Henley, Eng., was out practicing
yesterday In a borrowed shell, but It was
evident that he was rowing under difficul
ties.
"It takes me five strokes to start Sulli
van's boat," said West, "but I shall be all
right Monday when I get my own boat."
The Argonaut (Canadian) crew entered
for the Grand Challenge Cup did half the
course this morning 1;. three minutes and
twenty-two second*. This Is considered ex
traordinarily fast time during the training
period, and the Canadians' chances of cap
turing the cup are regarded as second to
none.
May Start New Country Club.
There will be a mass meeting of a ma
jority of the members of the board of gov
ernors of the Columbia and Washington
Golf olubs. with a number of the members
and other business men. held at the office
of Henry A. Preasey. 406 Colorado building,
on Monday evening at 8 o'clock.
According to the circular letter sent to
the members of the Columbia dub by Sec
retary Benl. Woodruff the meeting will be
held for the purpose of discussing ways and
means for a large country club, to be lo
cated on the beautiful tract of land known
as the Saegmuller property, on the Old Do
minion and Great Falls railroad, in Alexan
dria county. Va. This place is admirably
located for a magnificent country olub, that
would Indeed be an attraction to the oapltal
city. The mansion which was built some
yeara ago by Mr. Saegmuller was later
closed by the owner, who moved away. It
has always been kept In fine condition, and
seems an Ideal location for a country club.
Being thirty minutes from the treasury by
oar and the Dries reasonable, many of the 1
members hone that ways and means may be
found to purohaee the property. The man
sion, It Is stated, cost 100,000 to build
Eastern Branch Gun Club.
The Eastern Branch Gun Club had an
other of Its weekly shoots on the grounds
of the club near the District Jail Thursday
afternoon, and there was a large attend- j
ance of the members of the club and some
fine shots were made, the score* being,
when the results were summed up, found to
be well above the average. The preparations
for the big shooting tournament which the
club will hold at its grounds on Independ

Opposition to License.
The circuit court for Alexandria county,
which has been In session at the county
court house at Fort Myer Heights for the
past week, will, on Monday, consider the
applications which will be made for the
, granting of licenses to sell liquor in the
county. Under the provisions of the Vir
ginia law before a license can be granted
it must be shown that there is sufficient po
lice protection to warrant the licensing of a
barroom, and the applicant must also have
bis application signed by a majority of
the residents in the neighborhood of the
proposed saloon.
Since the order of Judge Nlcol of the cir
cuit court of Alexandria county closed all
of the saloons a year ago, on the ground
that there was not sufficient police protec
tion to make it safe for a renewal of
the licenses, there have been no legal bar
rooms in Alexandria county although, ac
cording to the report of the special graid
Jury which has been in session this week,
there are a number of speakeasies in cer
tain sections.
? It is said that a renewal of any licenses
will be opposed by a majority of the peo
ple of the county when the matter comes
up on Monday.

Held to Await Action of Baltimore
Grand Jury.
Rosa Moor?, formerly a resident of this
city, who was arrested on a houseboat near
Alexandria last Monday, as stated in The
Star at the time, was arraigned in court in
Baltimore yesterday upon a charge of re
ceiving stolen property. The case was"sent
to the grand Jury and bond was fixed at
$1,000. Two blankets, an old pair of shoes
and a fork were the articles alleged to have
been stolen, but the blankets were not
positively Identified. The fork and shoes.
It was claimed, had been taken from Fort
Hunt.
Mrs. Moore stated to the court that she
took the houseboat for the purpose of
earning a living after the death of her hus
band. The tfhoes, she said, were left upon
the boat by a man who had worked for
her, and the fork was there when she i
took charge of the boat.
When questioned in court she said her
maiden name was Theresa Roberts. Asked
why she sold liquor upon what she called
the "Ark" without first having obtained a
state license, she said such a license is not
necessary, because her business was con
ducted on the water. Policeman Herbert
Knight of Alexandria and officers and pri
vates from Fort Hunt were the witnesses
for the prosecution. Being unable to fur
nish the bond Mrs. Moore was committed
to jail.
