? I.ONTON.nnill 53. ? The unfort?
unate s<rirs <i| disputes wlrich has
arisen sluce the ooinin:; ol lit
Olympic gauKB. not only between
Americans and the officials of ih<
amateur athletic association, but !i
tween th(; athletts of other nations
an() the fame officials, culminated
this afternoon in an occurrence which
threatened to wreck the inter Olym?
pic meetings.
The trouble was over the tinal heat
of 40u metres tlat rac-. for whtc.'i
J. <lftCar|sjk((>r.' - Cornell I'niveraity:
J. 1C ^Taylor, Irish-American Athl li?
Club; W. C. Robbins. T>.uibridge.
Mass., and Lieutenant Windham
Hall-well. United Kingdom. i;iialltled.
With the xeeption of Taylor, the
men got off quickly on the firitm of
the pistol and Ro?bins sprinte.) i.t
front, taking the |>ole .'roni Carpen?
ter, who war just behind, with Halls
well trailing along beside him. It
look-d like anybody's race as they
approached the last turn, t\- three
leaders being bun.cb.cd.
Officials Call Race Off.
The spurt for the final hundred
yards was just b gun when suddenly
a number of the officials ru.-he.l onto
the track, the tape across the finish
was torn down and the race was de?
clared off.
It was hard for a time to under?
stand what had occurred, but th..
official pronoucc nient was-that Car?
penter had fouled Hallswel] at the
turn. Everybody close to this s|k>'
had noticd that three \en had
swerved toward tht. outside of th '
track as they came around the hen I
at a terrific rate, but there wer? n?'
sign of* a deliberate foul visible to
lho.se in the press stands.
An uproar followed such as sel?
dom or never was witnessed on an
athletic field. Officials of the A ma
tcur Athletic Association with whom
the arena has lieen filled since the
opeidng of the gam S. ran along th ?
edges of the track shouting ??.on!''
and appeared even more excited than
the runners, who. with the xc ption
of Taylor, continued the race to Ihe
finish. Caldenler passing Ihe post
first. Robbins at COO d and llallswe'l
Americans Indignant.
Taylor, who was already distance.!
In Ihe race, was draggled off the track
by the excited officials, snouting it
was no rac .
America's contingent set np a yell
as their man had apparently capture.I
the rac?-. which had tuen propir1 sied
tor the Englishman, while the sut.i
enc?- oreupvtag the other stand, sat
silent, not knotting the cause of Ihe
