More than 60,000 persons saw the
ace, and all agreed that he was the
greatest horse of his age In America,
jand In the same class as the immortal
jMan o' War.
Thousands of students of the sport
declared emphatically that he could I
pa ve beaten any kind of a record on
Ithe books, If he had been urged to do
f ie best. lie was fresh and strong at
he finish and cooled out as quickly
if ho had only breezed a two or
th ree furlongs.
I At the end of his journey he was a
length and a half in front of Bet
jMosie, which beat George I*\ Baker's
(Sesplsed outsider, John Finn, by a
(head for the second portion of the
[purse. Mr. Baker's colt was two
lengths in frcut of Deadlock, the
Stavorite amon^lic Kentucky horses.
Eldward Simms's My Play, the full
rother of Man o' War. was fifth, and
the remainder of the field, led by Mrs.
Payne Whitney's LeHerman, were almost
distanced. Busy American, E. F.
Bradley's unsound colt, broke down j
after racing more thin a quarter o? j
a mile, and did not finish.
Despite the fact that almost all of i
those present believed Morvicli would be 1
a winner, he paid the big price of $4.40
in the $2 mutuel machines, which Is at j
the rate of 6 to 5. This pries was aston- I
ishingly generous.
Race Worth 946,775.
The race was worth $40,775 to the
hrinner, besides a gold service cup valued
fct $7,000. The victory brought the colt's
total winnings up to the huge sum of;
'$162,000. If he remains sound?and
there wasn't a blemish on him except the ;
jigly looking knee, which has heen pro- \
claimed free from pain?it is almost sure
>e will earn more than $250,000 and i
pass Man o' War as the greatest winner [
the American turf has ever known.
Although Morvlch Is an Eastern horse |
hud owned by a turfman who Is unknown ;
In Kentucky, he received an ovation the
like of which was never accorded I
to an American thoroughbred in this
part of the country. It was r popular j
victory because everybody loves a great
tiorse. Volley after volley of cheers 1
boil Id be heard at least a mile away.
! There wasn't anything false In the I
Shouts that went up. They were genu- j
Sne and came from the heart. They be- |

barrier went up and increased In deaf- j

The paradox of the thing was that

Governor Prnlnen It lock.
\fter the race Benjamin Block, the,
Jfew York broker who owns the colt
and whose colors have never yet seen
efcal. was fairly mobbed. In their en
fchusiasm for his colt thousands forgot
that they dldh't know the man. They
mist swarmed around him and showered ;
ml in with congratulations. After the ;
arm lie was escorted to the judges'
Pftfta. There Gov. Mcnow of Kentucky
presented him with the gold servi, 5 set
And complimented him on behalf of the ]
people of the State of Kentucky for his
feourage. The Governor used more than ;
p thousand words In his address, but
plmost every other one of them was

Piade Morvich the winner of the fortyfsighth
running of the historic event and

turf. He averred that Mr. Block and
Bis trainer, Fred Burlew, had as much
Courage as his phenomenal equine speed

He declared that they could have

on the American turf.
The address wa? heurd by thousands
and all agreed It fitted colt, owner
and trainer, and It came in for volumes ,
of praise. The astute trainer who has
kept the cnB. unbeaten and brought him
from the Bast where weather conditions
are not the best, in such perfect condition
so early In the year, earned him
an enviable position among the horsegrcn
in the country.
Of course, he was delighted with the
Victory, but Ito was especially pleased
because his Judgment had been vindicated
In allowing the colt so many
speed trials at Jamaica and no distance
Viirkouts. He had been criticized In
irany quarters, but the criticism heaped

now the world Is declaring that he had
CLane the right thing with his charge.
Rurlen's Praise of Colt.

Local Competitive Tennis Season
I'shered In by Field of
Record Size.
A tennis opening is not like a baseball
opening. It happens very quietly,
without the blare of trumpets or any
other sort of ceremony. The players
just arrive, renew old acquaintances
and then got out on the courts. Except
for the fact that the contestants
appeared on the scene well ahead of
timje and showed unusual eagerness
to get into action, there was nothing
at the Harlem Tennis Club tournament
yesterday to Indicate that the
event ushered in the competitive season.
Tine Harlem Tennis Club committee
had good reason to regret the fact that
they had only six courts avatiaDie ror a
record field of 120 entrants. The players
arrived much faster than they could
be taken care of and, as luck would
have It, several long extra set matches
delayed matters and caused the event
to run behind schedule. But to-day Is
another day, and a long one at that, for
play is to start as early as 9 A. M., and
if rain doesn't Interfere the field of 120
will be narrowed to thirty-two survivors
by nightfall.
As usual, the top ranking-players of
the metropolitan district were not on
hand for the opening event. They seldom
rre, preferring to limit themselves
to exhibitions and practice matches until
late in May or early In June, but the
second flight of tennis players in the
district was well represented, and there
is the positive assurance that the tournament
will have plpnty of quality as
well as quantity. The absence of the
top notchers for one thing means that
the field Is better balanced. No one
stands out as a likely winner, and It is
difficult, in fact, to name the possible
OAOseml-finallsts, much less finalists.
The Contendere.
One need but refer to the list of
"seeded" players to determine who the
contenders in the tournament are. In
the upper quarter Herbert L. Bowman,
New York Athletic Club and New York
Tennis Club champion, and Elliott H.
Binzon, North Side title holder, appear
to be bv far the strongest Tn th#>
ond quarter Alfred D. Hammett. who 1s
playing; through In defense of the cup
he won a year ago. and Kenneth D.
Fisher, who was runner up to Hammett
In the last tournament, stand out above
the rest, but there are some who should
press them closely in that division of
the draw. They may expect plenty of
stern opposition from Anton F. von Bernuth.
J. 8. McDermott, Fred D. Powers
and Morton Bernstein.
The seeded players In the third quarter
are Dr. George King, Westchester
county champion, and Henry H. Bassford,
but here too the opposition is
strong, with Paul Martin, Walter S.
Tcussalnt, Herbert H. Manchester and
Leslie V. Robinson among the contestants.
In the bottom quarter Percy
L Kynaston, Nassau and Queens champion,
and Ingo Hartman, the New York
Tennis Club veteran, are the leading
None of the favorites had to call on
anything like his best speed to win his
first round match. The hard tussles

third and the Oreentree Staples' Pirate
; Gold fourth.
; The big race was the fourth on the
card aud the crowd waited impatiently
; for It to be called. There was plenty of
good racing in the three events scheduled
prior to the stake, but the majority
had come out to see something and they
regarded all that went before as a mere
side issue.
As the time approached for the race
the crowd overflowed into the infield
and breaking down the ropes intended
to hold them back lined up against the
railing up and down the stretch.
Promptly at 4 :40 the bugle sounded and
the Preakness field, twelve In number,
came out upon the track and paraded
before the grandstand. Galantman led
; the ^procession but was soon displaced
by Miss Joy, who worked her way to
the front nnd took her position beside
the lead pony.
A "Hunch" That Failed.
It was something of a hunch to the
! players and a shout went "She will come
home in front." It was not to be so,
At the post the horses were lined up
without much delay and were sent off to
a good start. Galantman, which broke
from the rail position, took the lead and
with June Grass ran out in front rounding
the turn. Miss Joy was third for a
flash, but after going a half mile slipped.
Down the back stretch Galantman and
June Grasa headed the procession, but

drive down the stretch. s
It was a desperato push to the finish,
but Pillory, though tiring, held on long
enough to get the verdict by a nose
from Hea, which came with an electric
burst through the stretch and Just failed
to land. Admiral Grayson's good colt
was at the tall end of the procession going
down the backstretch and nobody
gave him a thought until he loomed up

Miss Joy and Hephaistos ran very disappointing
races and showed no traces
of the form they were supposed to possess.
It Is probable that the best horse
won, although many good Judges claim
that with a better start Hea would have

The race was worth $51,000 to the
winner. It Is said that Morris, who rode
Pillory, will get $5,000 for landing the
rich prize.

This thing yesterday was no fight.
Tt was a demonstration. The man from
the Argentine weighed 211 pounds,
while the Italian victim weighed only
184. Herman was just thrown in for
the purposes of experiment, a sort of
pugilistic guinea pig as it were. He
blinked like one.
When he peeled off a checkerboard
bathrobe trimmed with royal purple
Firpo looked like something that belonged
to the same age as the plesiosaurus
recently reported seen in South
America. He glared from tyneath a
bushy shock of dark hair. His face

i hair dangled from his chest and arms,

If ever the Influence of the late Max,

He aeemed to be lacking: a club or a

He fought in primitive fashion with the
' primitive man's instinct for finding a
I*vital spot. The jabs of the lighter man
' annoyed Him and he pulled Herman to
j him, banging his fist and forearm down

Twice Huggins Athletes Come *
From Behind Only to Lose
Blue and Clark Hit for Circuit ^
j for Ty Cobb's Fighting e
More than 25,000 persons saw the ^
Yankees beaten by the Tigers yesterday
afternoon In one of the most sensational
games of the season to date
I Twice the Yankees came from behind
and tied the score. Once It was by I
' means of a home run wallop by Whitey
Witt in the eleventh inning. In the 1
! final showdown the Tigers carried the
winning punch and slipped it across
in the thirteenth round. The score
was 8 to 5.
Yankees Threaten Early.
The Yanks made threatening gesI
tures In each of the first two Innings
I but couldn't go through with them.!
( Whitey Witt walked at the start of;
I the opening round but tried to adI
vance from first to third while Jones [
j was ferrying Fewster's tap to Blue
' and found Blue's return throw await-1
; ing him in Jones's glove.
In the second Elmer Miller shoved
1 a double down the left field line but
two Infield outs were required to move
i hhn to third and he was left anchored
there when Fewster flied to Veach for
the third out.
Again in the third, the Yankees
started something and left it unfin- j
ished. This time there were two out !
when Witt grounded briskly to Clark
and reached first base when the Tiger
second baseman booted a comparatively
easy chance. j
, * ?? ,
came up with runners on first and second.
With the count "three and one," ,
Frank swung at a "cripple" and lined
a foul Into right field stand which
missed being a homer by a matter of |
inches only. Baker then grounded to
Clark, whose throw to first retired the ' ,
Ward and Scott Shine.
The Tigers had been going out in 1
order In the meantime. In the fourth,
however, Shawkey passed Blue, the ,
| first man up. and two spectacular plays *
! by Aaron Ward and Everett Scott re- '
j epectively were required to keep the
I Jungeleers from-scoring at least one run 1
I In this Inning.
| After Blue ' had walked, Jones J
! slammed a grounder to Ward's right, J
i which skidded pass Pip and looked like ?
i a sure enough hit, but Ward cut aaross c
behind the first baseman, grabbed the *
ball with one hand and whipped it t
to Shawkey, covering first, In time to
retire the batter. 3
' Cobb then (shot one through the bo* I fi
which Scott corraled back of second 1
and hurled to first for a hair line do- f
' cislon which sent the Tiger leader back h
j to the bench. Veach ended the Inning l
with a pop fly to Schang. ,
Another glittering chance was wasted t
by the Yankees In their half of this B
round. Ehmke passed both MHJer and i t
' Pipp and both runners advanced on f
Ward's sacrifice. Scott grounded out j
] to Jones, the runners being held on t
I their bases. After Wallle Schang had 1 t
1 been purposely passed, Ehmke pulled j
I himself together and fanned Bob Shaw- i _
key. j I
Up to this time not a hit had been
made off Shawkey. In the fifth, how- J
over, Heilrr.ann led off with a single to ,
left center and Clark followed with one.
to lelt. Heilmann advanced to third on j '
Schang's wild throw to catch hiro off
second and scored on Rlgney's single to I '
center. Anticipating a possible play at J ''
third. Miller tried to throw the ball be- ?
fore he picked It up and the resultant
error put Clark on third and Rlgney on
second. It alao enabled Clark to score 'f
on E'imko's fly to Fowster, after Bassler
had popped to Miller In short left
center.| In the sixth the Yankees Anally
managed to get on run across. Miller \
was the flrst man up in tills Inning and
punched a single to left \ R
Pipp grounded to Blue, whose throw
j force Miller at second was wide. El- M
mer going to third and Pipp reaching f'
flrst on the error. Ward beat out a hit Y
toward third. Miller scoring, but Ehmke &
' converted 8cott's Intended sacrifice Into K
a force out at third. Schang passed out
on a fly to 'Cobb and Sha.vkey ended the | C
