so that he may meet and talk with them.
When the President received his telegrams
and mail yesterday he found a
cablegram from the I'nited States commissioner
at the Olympic gam'es in London
informing him of the splendid show- ji

contests. The message is as follows:

WILL MEET TWO ENGLISH r
BOATS FOR CUP. ?u
NEW YORK, July 28.-E. J. Schroeder's lfJ
high speed power boat Dixie II. built expressly
this year to defend the international
cup, formerly known as the ^
Harmsworth cup was selected yesterday ^
after she had covered a thirty-mile course
off Huntington, L. I., as one of thedefend- ^
ers of the cup. Tlie boat sliowed such ?
marked all-round ability that the commit- B
tee granted the request of her owner to n
excuse her from further official trials, so
that she may be put in the best shape for 8
the actual race next Saturday, when she b
and whatever other boats are chosen will a
meet the Duke of Westminster's famous a
j Wolseley Siddeley and Lord Howard De ^
Walden s Daimler III in the race for the
cup over the same course. a
The Dixie traveled three times around a P
ten-mile triangular course in 1 hour !? F
minutes and 57 seconds, or at the rate of 0
123.8! W knots, or 20.882 statute miles an
[hour. J. H. Hoadley's Den covered it in
1 hour 21 minutes and 3 seconds, or at
the rate of 22.222 knots or 25.588 statute
miles an hour. The Gray was the third G
starter. She withdrew after the second
round. The boats expected to start in totoday's
race are the Elsa Craig, the Autowin,
the Den and the Gray. o
FIGHTS AND FIGHTERS 8
Mike (Twin) Sullivan, the Boston welterweight
boxer, is now traveling through k
the small towns of Canada, meeting local p
boxers and giving exhibitions.
Abe Attell. although reported to have a w
lot of money and plenty of influential A
backers, has not yet been able to raise f:
the $10,000 forfeit for his coming match
with Owne Moran, and has asked for
more time to get the money together. 1
I'nk Russell made a great hit with his g
aggressive style of boxing when he met ?
and beat Russell Van Horn at Columbus, i,
Ohio, last Tuesday night. They thought h
OUt there that Van Horn xrac onKootoKlo

Johnny Mack, the well known New York D
manager of boxers, who has been responsible
for the success of Danny Duane, j
Matty Baldwin and other prominent pugi- ?
lists, has taken hold of Larry Connolly
and expects to send him to the front of }'
the welterweight cla*. }
Quite a number of the New York boxing
club managers are anxious to get the ^
match between Billy Papke and Willie a
Lewis of New York. It is reported also w
that Mlah Murray of the Armory Club, n
Boston, has his eye on this match as a h
good money winner. k
Stanley Ketchell received a diamond belt
the other day emblematic of the middleweight
championship. The gift is said to
be worth $1J*K>, and the next day Ketchell
received a small bale of pawnbrokers' J

Betting on the Hanlon-Murphy fight ^
that takes place next Saturday night at n
the Colma arena, dropped to 10 to 7. with
Murphy a strong favorite at that price. a
Murphy did his last boxing yesterday at
Millett's. working with Dick Sullivan and R
Joe Leahy, who have been training with a
him. He was down to 136 pounds and b
will take things easy for the balance of ^
the week. Hanlon has also cut out the
boxing. He weighs 135% pounds. h
There were rumors of Elbows McFadden
going to Europe in search of victories
and wealth, but of late we have n
not heard any more about it. He contracted
the fever for the trip after he
listened to the glowing accounts of Gay
Paree as related by Willie Lewis and
the soft time Willie had on the other side, li
Willie's wonderful stories made George tl
get in touch with a few of the "mountains r
of youth" on the East Side, after which A
he felt as good as in the days that he f<
trimmed Joe Gans and other stars.
The Ketchell-Kelly fight at the Coliseum
next Friday evening will be refereed by
Jack Welsh, the popular and efficient ring I
official who declared on the Fourth of
July he would retire because of the criticisms
at the Nelson-Gans fight. It took
the combined efforts of Luke Marisch and h
Charles Lecarl of the Pacific Athletic tl
Club to induce Jack to come back into
the game, and last night he informed
them he would act as referee at the mid- 'E
dlew(4ght championship battle. Manager es
Marisch states that in order to prevent
any unnecessary noise from seconds po- -(
llcemen will be stationed in close proximity
to the corners, with authority to squelcli ei

biggest men in Wall street ?ailed upon
me and said that his client offered to
contribute >l??u.i??o to my campaign fund
and to raise several hundred thousand
more :f my views wore reasonable in regard
t<i honest business.
toid the emissary that tiie offer wis
declined with thanks. 1 said that the
gentlemen making it were merely proposing
to waste their good money, for
wherever business was honest I would
deem it my duty as a public official to
promote and encourage it without any
hundred-thousand-dollar bribes, and
wherever business was dishonest not all
the money in Wall street would influence
my attitude toward it.
"No lawyed would serve his client honestly
who had received a retaining fee
from the opposite side, and no party can
honestly represent the citizens where*
their interests conflict with the exactions
of tiie trusts if it lias been contaminated
b\ a corpoiation campaign fund and subsidized
into silence and subserviency.
Broad and Liberal Stand Urged.
"I urge our party to take a broad and
liberal stand toward the legitimate business
enterprises of the country, but to
distinguish between honest business
everywhere and ttiose criminal concerns
which plunder through political pull and
pay for political protection.
' "Good wine needs no bush,' and hottest
business needs no bribe."
"Honest business and prosperity are almost
synonymous terms. As one develops
the other increases; when one is unduly
disturbed the other fails.
"Reforms must be made as the country
develops and the people progress, but
these reforms should be carried out by
those in authority without spite or prejudice.
without egotism or sensationalism,
without a brass band or a big stick.
"Not all who ask to be let alone really
want to be let alone.
"The thief may well ask to be let alone
in his thievery but the legitimate business
man would ask for all the encouragement
that an intelligent business ad- *
ministration can properly provide.
"We all want prosperity and, what is
more, we want prosperity for all.
"I urge our party, therefore, to be Intelligently
and courageously constructive,
not merely obstructive like the republican
party nor destructive like tiie democratic
Platforms of the Old Parties.
"The republican platform says nothing

"It is a platform of statistical inventions

"It is obviously the product of a party

whose sole desire is to stay pat.
"The democratic platform contains some
good and original things, but. as has been
said, the original things are not good and
the good things are not original.
"It was built by political jackdaws
who feathered their nests with the plumes
of others without understanding of their
significance or intention as to their performance.
"It is the habitation of a hermit crab
which has no shell of its own and invades
the first convenient one without regard*
to property or propriety.
"It is a platform, too. of reconciliation
and retraction, of atonement and apology,
of harmony and hypocrisy, for in compliance

"Our party is not a party of factions or

"Let us act boldly and speak plainly.

DEWEY VETERAN KILLED.
Ex-Navy Gunner Shocked to Death
in New York.
XEW YORK, July 28.? James O'Con- A
nor. who was chief gunner on Admiral
Dewey's flagship. Olympia. in the battle
of Manila, was killed by electricity yesterday
while he was lying on his back
repairing the channel wall beneath the
tracks in Gth avenue at Greenwich avenue.
Nothing was heard from O'Connell
for fifteen minutes after he entered tho
channel. Suddenly a man's cry came
from the manhole, and. peering into the
opening, a workman saw that something
had happened to O'Connell. Dr. Quinn
was summoned from St. Vincent's Hospital,
and he saw at once that O'Connell
had been shocked to death. It was a
half hour before the body could be lifted
to the street, and northbound traffic was
tied up. The bottom of the duct was covered
with water, and it is thought a
short circuit had been made.
The police were unable to learn the
dead man's address, for the only one of
his fellow-workmen that knew it started
at once to notify the widow. O'Connell
left the navy a short time. ago. and intended
to return to it in a month.

with a whale when three days out.
She caught a fifty-foot whale unaware,
and nearly ran it down. By quick work
the vessel turned out and just grazed
sides with the whale. The skipper explained
that it was all the result of misunderstanding
of signals. He said he ?
blew twice and the whale blew once. The*
passengers declared it was the most enjoyable
experience of the trip.
