MANY ACCIDENTS MAR SPORT. Driver of Second Machine Lodges Vigorous Protest, Which Is Be ing Considered. BROKEN GLASS ON COURSE. Deliberate Attempt Made, Ap parently, touin Vehicles, and Numerous Bursted Tires I Are the Result. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Now York, Oct. S. In a desperately con tested race to-day over a 800-mlle course, with thirty mile laps, George Heath, an American, residing in Paris, driving a Panhard, and repreeentlng the Automo bile Club of France, won the Yanderoiu cup from Albert Clement, Jr., by one mlnuto and twonty-!ght seconds. A vigorous pretest was made by Clem ent, but was not allowed. The racing committee later decided to suspend action on Clement's protest until a Mcetlr.it is beld et the Oerden City Hotel late to-night to pays upon his claims. This was a reconsideration of Ha former action, H3d was do-ie to avoid any claims of foul p-jrtlcwi T-Mch might w made by Clem tr who kas rysScrlcs'. at the finish. Heath's time, figuring the gross time elapsed, without allowances, was at an average rate of a mile In 1 minute 12 sec onds, or 51 7-10 miles an hour. Both drivers received a great ovation from the crowds on the grand stand. It Is estimated that roo.- than 100.000 per sons saw the contest. Numerous accident marred the race. Half a down of the clgHeen cars which started wer early put out of the con ten by mishaps. ONE MAN KIIA.ED. One fatality occurred. Carl Meuset driv er for George Arents, Jr.; idled .from In juries received by the car turning upside down. ArtntJ. who also rode in the car, war severely hurt. The race was stopped fon after Clement finished. LyAle mould have been third if he had finished. A startling development of the contest was the fact that many bent, rusty nails were found on the course, and it seems that a deliberate attempt had been made to wreck the racing machines. These nails and some broken glass account for the many bursted tires. The track was care fully inspected late yesterday, and It is helloed that the nails and glass were strewn oer the courso during the night. The Judges called the race oft after Clement flnlshsd, because the other com petitors were so far behind. There was tremendous excitement on the stands at the finish toward the end of the race. Heath finished first, but as he started ten minutes ahead of Clement the recult was in doubt up to the moment that Clement whizzed over the line., and even then thousands of the spectators had to an ait the official announcement. CLEMENT PROTEST8. According to the rules, the contestants after pasilng the post at the end of the final lap, should have proceeded to Hlcks ville. Heath did so. Clement, on the oth er hand, turned and, racing back to the Judges' stand, registered two protests one against Heath, and the other against the men in charge of the control stations. Clement declared to the Judges that Heath cut hlni oft in the turn and forced him into the sand and grass. The pro test against the men at the controls was to the effect that they wouIU not permit, him to travel as fast as the rules allowed," The Judges listened to his protests, and then informed him of their assurances that the charge were without founda tion in fact. They refused to entertain the protest against Heath. The men at the control utatlons declared that Clement had been treated with absolute lairness. When seen after the finish. Heath, the winner, said: "I was confident of winning from the start As soon as I got settled to the vt ork I was not af riad of any of my cora iwtitors. 1 could hate saved thirty min utes at Hempstead, where I broke two iliea on account of tbo road' When asked what his sensation were .urlng the race, he said: "I was hungry. I felt like I was starv ing to death. Jly machine behacd beau tifully. Altogether I think It was a high ly creditable race." Following Is a summary of the race: The start (official): Heath, t.12.

St. Louis and the World's Fair have seen the last of the famous but ill-fated airship, Santos-Dumont, No. 7, which was brought to this city early in the Exposition season by its navigator. PVillnwins: the decarture of the Bra zilian aeronaut with the slashed rem nants of his gas envelope, shortly after the misadventure of the baUoon, the framework and machinery of the airship hae made their exit Although the machinery and framework of the airship have been gone from the World's Fair for fully a month and ore even now in Paris, the fact only became known yesterday. When Mr. Santos woke up one fine morning to fin 1 the long silkvvarnlshed . oniPinm- of his airship, which had benn left in its crate at the Aerodrome, slashed in a score of place-i by the sharp blade of some miscreant, he loEt little time In deciding to take it bock with him to Paris to have It repaired, as he claimed the repairs could not be satis factorily done In St. Louis. The framework and machinery of the airship were left In St. Louis, in charge of three of his engineers, pending his re turn in September with the repaired gas envelope. From the Eatt Mr. Santos tele graphed instructions to hae the ma chinery placed in the Brazilian Pavll'on, whereit should be on exhibition untihis return to enter the aeronautic lists for the grand prize at the Exposition. When he reached Paris Mr. Santos changed his mind again, and announced thot he would not be a contestant In the airship races at St Louis. It was the understanding that the machinery and framework should remain on exhibition at the Brazilian Pavilion. Yesterday, however. Doctor Ferrelra rtnmo. one of the Brazilian Commission ers to the World's Fair, stated that he had shlppefi the machinery and frame work back to Paris, acting under cabled instructions from Mr. Santos. The instruc tions were received in the latter part of August. Doctor Itamos stated, and the airship parts were taken from the base ment of the pavilion, where they had been stored, and packed and shipped to France. The removal of the airship from the scene de'trojs the last lingering hopes that might have been entertained of Santos-Dumont experiencing a final chango of mind and entering the races. It alro leaves the field clear to the other ambi tious aeronauts now here by removing their most dangerous rival from the J103. 000 grand prize. The Santoi-Dumont No. 3, with which the aeronaut made his flights at Coney Island, Is now advertised for sale in New York City. DID NOT RETURN FOR CHILD. Baby Boy Still Held at the Model Playgrounds.

"B":ropo for thirty years was under the menace of revenge for Alsaoe." it says. "If we conclude peace with Japan all our tfforts In the far East will be val ueless, and we shall have to sprad enor mous sums to iicsv up our armament there.

In any case the Russian ships could not go to the neutral port of Chefoo, but must head for Vladivostok.

After an exhausting and perilous walk of soveral blocks Evelyn subsided at the corner of Clara and Bartmer avenues, where she was found by Mrs. H. V. Nie meyer of No. 5S95 Bartmer avenue, who took her in charge and notified the police. In the meantime the badly frightened housegirl had notified the police and a patrolman was sent to Mrs. Niemever's residence, where she had t.iken the little girl, to see if the description given bv the housegirl tallied with the guest of "Mrs. Niemey er.
