The Olympic score inj eludes only the track and field I events, as the minor sports, such as J cycling, shooting, golf, gymnastics, swimming, etc., do not count in the j record. LONDON. July 16.?America and the United Kingdom are running a neck-kndneck race for supremacy at the Olympiad. The United Kingdom started the day with four first places to America's two, but America picked up in the earlier events auu ?un mi uiree prizes 111 me uisiubthrowing and first and third prizes in the weight-throwing. Horgan, who has competed alternately under the colors of Ireland and America, is now with the United Kingdom. He took second place in the latter event. This evened up the score of the two countries, but England got another slight lead when Taylor made his sensational win in the 400-meter swimming contest, beating Beaurepaire. the Australian crack, by a handsome margin. Scheff of Austria, of whom great things had been expected, was third in this event. It h*d been fuljy-egpeeted that America would take all twee prizes in the weightputting. Ralph Rose, Olympic Club, San Francisco, was first, and J. C. Garrels, Chicago Athletic Association, third. VV. "W. Coe, Jr., Boston Athletic Association; l.ee J. Talbott, Irish-American Athletic Club; Martin J. Sheridan, Irish-American Athletic Club; M. F. Horr, Irish-American Athletic ClulR and W. O. Burroughs, Chicago Athletic Association, the other Americans who competed, could not get tnside the standard. Nevertheless, the Americans welcomed this win, as it reduced Oreat Britain's lead in the aggregate, and if second and third places were counted it alone would bring the two countries to about equal terms. A great cheer, therefore, went up when the result was announced. This burst of enthusiasm was followed by a calm when the ocucpants of the stands where the Americans gather awaited tne noisting or meoiars and Stripes on the flagstaff in the center of the arena. They waited, however. In vain, as the bluejackets to whom this duty had been assigned had sought shelter from the downpour of rain which has made the day's sport a cheerless, affair. Three Prizes in Discus Throw. The American athletes walked away from all their opponents in the discus throwing competition, free style, this morning. Martin J. Sheridan, IrishAmerican Athletic Club. retained the championship without great effort. His throw that gave*him first place in the final. 134 feet 2 inches, was more than two f^et behind his own record. M. H. Glffin, Chicago Athletic Association, was a good second, with 133 feet inches, and M. F. Horr. Irish-American Athletic Association, was third, with 120 feet 0 inches. The only man to serious challenge America for third place was Jarvine of Finland, who in his section covered 129 f^et 4H inches. John J. Flanagan, IrishAmerican Athletic Club, could not get above 124 feet. " Lee J. Talbot, IrishAmerican Athletic Club, however, did slightly better than Flanagan, reaching a fraction below 126 feet. Neither J. C. Carrels of the Chicago Athletic Association nor S. T. Glllis of the New York Athletic Club could get into the swing, and they fell far behind their team mates. A drizzling rain fell all the morning, and the attendance was less than on any previous day. A contingent of Americans, however, came out especially to s<e'the discus throwing, and by their cheers they g3ve a little life to the proceedings when the conclusive American victory in this event was announced. Rosa Puts the Shot Best. In putting the weight contest sections one and two were grouped. W. W. Coe, ! jr., Boston Athletic Association, was first with 42 feet 10*? inches. Sauli of Finland u-a* virh XI fppt U. inches - I and I/ee J Talbott. Irish-American Athletic Club, third, with 3b feet 2 Inches. Sections three and four In putting the weight were grouped. J. C. Garrels, Chicago Athletic Association, was first with 43 feet 3 inches, and M. F. Horr, IrishAnierlcan Athletic Club, was second with 42 feet 1 inch. W. G. Burroughs. Chicago Athletic As-, soclation. did not reach the standard. In sections live and six. grouped. Horfan. I'nited Kingdom, was tirst with 43 fee: inches, and Barrett. United Kingdom, was second, with 42 feet 3% Inches. In sections seven and eight, grouped, Ralph Rose. Olympic Club, San Francisco, won with 4H feet 2V* inches. The final in the putting-the-weight eonlegt was won by Ralph Rose. Olympic Club, San Francisco.. Horgan, United Kingdom, was second, and J. C. Garrels. Chicago Athletic Association, third. Rose's distance was 46 feet 7(4 Inches. This does not equal the Olympic record for this event. 48 feet 7 inches, made by Rose in St. Loui^ In 1904. Horgan'a distance was 44 feet 8*4 inches and Garrels' 43 feet 3 inches. London's Apparent Apathy. Ix>ndon's comparative apathy toward the Olympiad is the theme of much newspaper comment this morning.

Gen. George M. Wilson, chairman, sent a letter to this effect to the president of the Washington Railway and Electric ! Company yesterday. Mr. Eddy to Collect Data. Further action along this line was taken when the commission instructed its executive officer and secretary, H. C. Eddy, \ to investigate the several complaints presented to the commission, and particularly .to take up that of the Brightwood citizens asking through* service. Mr. Eddy will study the conditions along this line, secure data regarding car schedules. traffic, etc., for the use of the commission in arriving at a decision. Mr. Eddy will also consult with the railway officials to - determine .thetr views of the situation, with an aim to settle the mat- I ter without a public hearing. Representatives of the Brightwood Citizens' Association called at the rooms of < tike commission in the Westory building this morning and presented a letter asking the commission to ask the Brightwood Railway Company if through car service would be installed soon. The delegation was told that the commission had already taken such action. In the party of visitors were E. P. Shoemaker. C. C. Lancas ter, Charles w. Ray and George S. Wilson.

Mr. Eddy will take up each complaint with the railway companies involved, and see what the companies are willing to do. If a satisfactory arrangement can be made without a public hearing. Mr. Eddy will report to the commission. and it will take the necessary action to bring the matter to a conclusion. W. P. Gude, a florist, has written to the commission asking that smoking on street cars be prohibited. He stated that fully 75 per cent of those using the cars favor such action. s A. M. Jorgensen of Mt. Ranier. Md.. has notified the commission that he lias invented a fender which he modestly thinks ought to be adopted for all street cars. The letter has been filed. Gen. Wilson stated today that the work of the commission will ba continued actively during the summer by Mr. Eddy, the executive officer, and that one member of the commission will he In the city all the time to see that progress Is made. Gen. Wilson will leave the city Saturday, but will return when the work of the commission demands his presence here. WILSON DEATH MYSTERY. Philadelphia Police Think They Have Clue?Woman Suspected. PHILADELPHIA, July 16.-The police who are investigating the murd?ir of Dr. William H. Wilson, who died after drinking poisoned ale. believe they have found the place where the bottle which con! tained the ale was purchased, and with | this discovery they obtained information which strengthens the theory that a ; woman sent the poisoned ale or had someI thing to do with the sending of it. The 'proprietor of the place says the !>ottle was purchased June lh. seven days before Dr. Wilson drank the beverage. The woman, he said, bought six empty bottles and said she wanted to use them for catsup, and did not care what kind they were so long as the capacity of I pucri nno u'liu tint nirtrp h .? 11 o *?!*> ft .. ?..v, ? ?... ..vr? ."W ? **" * J'ltll.

In the letter the woman admits having had a-criminal operation performed and connects the name of the physician who treated her with Dr. Wilson. She says that Dr. Wilson and this physician had a bitter quarrel over another case, and she hints that this physician may throw some light on the mystery. Count Castellane Wants Children. PARIS.

PROBING GIRL'S DEATH TROY OFFICIALS WORKING ON CLUES TO FIND MURDERER. TROY, N. Y.. July 16.-That Hazel Drew was in Troy the afternoon of Tuesday, July 7, the day upon which she is supposed to have been murdered and her body thrown into the stagnant waters of Teal pond, has been established by the authorities. She was seen on Congress street, walking toward 5th' avenue, carrying her suit case, which was checked at the Union station at 1 :-fti o'clock that afternoon, presumably by the girl herself. Adalbert Atwood. parcel clerk at the station, says he remembers receiving the suit case, but cannot identify the bearer as Hazel Drew. It was left by a girl of blond type, he says, but whether she was accompanied by a companion he is unable to recall. Monday afternoon the girl called at the Westcott office at the station and asked that her trunk be taken from the home of Prof. E. R. Cary, where she was last employed, to the home of her parents. Where she spent Monday night the officials have been unable to learn. Mrs. Cary said that within the last six months Hazel had taken four trips out of the city. She went to New York twice, staying two days on each trip; once to Providence for two days and to Boston for a three-may sojourn. Who her companions were on those visits the police are trying to ascertain. Letters were found in the girl's trunk from persons in the cities mentioned, but the distict attorney refuses to make knewn their contents. He says that in none of the letters thus far examined are these love messages or anything to Indicate that Hazel had a sweetheart. The search for clues that will aid in fixing the responsibility for the crime continued today. The county authorities have offered a reward of $1,000 for the arrest and conviction of the murderer.

I DOZEN MORE OR LESS HURT Five of Nine Coaches in Train Wreck | Pullmans. j DERAILED AT GREENWICH, CT. Girder Bail Saved Entire Train From j Being Ditched?List of Injured. Washingtoniana on Board. ^ ? GREENWICH, Conn., July lfi.?The White Mountain express over the New York, New Haven and Hartford railroad, leaving New York at 3:40 this morning and due to go through here, at a. rate of about fifty miles an hour, at 0:20, was derailed and almost completely wrecked on the bridge over Greenwich avenue in this town. One woman passenger was almost instantly killed, one other woman very badly injured, and at least a dozen other passengers were more or less seriously hurt so that they had to be taken to the local hospitals. The passenger who was killed was Miss Marguerite Armstrong of Wayne, Pa., an occupant of one of the Pullman coaches. It would appear that Miss Armstrong had attempted to get out of the window as the coach toppled over, and she was crushed to death. The train was made up of nine coaches, _ m tx r\..11 _ J ? A V oi wnicn nve were ruiinuuw. uuiaiue ui the derailment the day coaches suffered practically no harm, while the Pullmans were all overturned. The train was drawn by two electric locomotives, and after the coaches were derailed these took three of the forward coaches and hauled them fully 500 feet ahead before they could be stopped after the engineers had noticed that the train had broken apart. The cause of the accident is not yet fixed, but inspection of the bridge shows that the iron was ground up into pieces, and one girder rail on the embankment side alone prevented the entire train from being ditched. The derailment occurred about 500 feet east of the Greenwich station. I Passenger Tells His Experience. One of the passengers in describing the accident said that he first noticed the bumping of the coaches on the ties, then a swaying from one side to the other, and Anally of his own and the other coaches. The speed at which the train was going is responsible for the distance at which the cars ran before toppling over. There- waa-a wild -scene as the cars became a mass of wreckage, the shrieks of the frightened passengers reaching the stores and residences on the nearby streets, and bringing almost instantly hundreds of townspeople to the rescue. The firemen and the ambulances from the hospitals and surgeons in town were at once summoned. It was reported that one woman who had been taken out of the wreckage had died on the way to the hospital. This, however, probably was an error. It is thought that of. the slightly more than 100 passengers in the Pullmans about half the number are more or less injured, although the serious cases may not number more than a dozen. flprnt int? hViA w1#a ta uw?ajr VI Hie Win IVBgC Iimncs II seem miraculous that more persons were not killed outright, as seemingly the Pullmans were very badly smashed up.
