Vale's Crew Not as Powerful Falls to Stand the Strain Noyes nt No, 6, Col lapses Near the Finish and is Unable to Reach the Water on the Catch Swings Wildly Through the Air Keeps His Seat Until Line is Crossed and Then Fulls Over In the Boat Like a Dead Man Grent Struggle From Start to Finish Time 23:02 and 23:11 , Yale Takes the Two Minor Races. New London, June 28. In sight of the greatest crowd ever gathered here on race day Harvard defeated Yale in the 'varsity rao for the first time since 1899. Coming after years of defeat and under the auspices of . a new rowing coach, and after two defeats in the minor races this morning, the Crim son's triumphy was like wine and bread to thei starving wanderer in the desert.' It was a victory over a great fyale crew, a crew that had smashed all records of the Thames to pieces in practice and which went to the stake boat a favorite. To whip such a crew under such conditions ; was a triumph which warrant's Harvard's joy to night, a Joy1 that at first was talked over quietly and which then broke out as the night wore on into wild and tu 'tmultuouB glee. To Captain Filley and to Coach Wray Harvard is to-night offering the great est athletic tributes that she has paid to any athletic heroes in over twenty years, while Yale is glad to shake the hand of such rivals and give them fall credit for a wonderful race. Harvard won, and this tells the whole fctory for Harvard men. But Yale row ed a race this afternoon that will live Jong In the annals of college sports. Not once from the start of the race until the last sixteenth of a mile did the long graceful shells cease to lap each other and the prows to zigzag be tween the swings of sixteen powerful backs. The two eights glared at each ether from the corner of! their eyes for over three miles and a half at first one .coxswain and then the other called up len his crew for leg drive and body swing to put his shell ahead. Then, end only then did Harvard get the lead.' Then it was that the endurance or pow er or In other words the physical make up of the Harvard boat, put in the kill ing touches for Yale. The Yale con swain called for a final spurt but' such tmen in the Yale boat as Boultoh and Noyes, who, a t their best, possessed no isuch endurance as men like Filley and Bacon, did not have the strength to put any more power into the stroke. They tried it but their oars literally slipped away from them. Then Har vard for the first time began to open up clear water between the two shells and in the last ten or fifteen strokes of the race Harvard got most of her lead. Noyes, Yale's No. 6 oar, from sheer ex haustion began to miss the water on the catch and swung his oar through the air. He sat up In his seat until the flag dropped and then he fell back wards into the boat like a dead man. Chase at (No. 6 raised Noyes' head up and dashed water on him. All the way down over the last mile and a quarter the Yale coxswain had been throwing water into Boufton's face and when Coxswain Barkalow finalley yelled "vast" Boulton fell forward on his oar. Dick More, Yale's captain, sitting up like a hero, splashed water upon his jnen and called to them to Bit up In the boat He had lost the race and the tfearest prize of his college career, but lie was game to the finish. Harvard's men In the Intoxication of their victory did not stop when the flags fell but rowed on under the draw bridge amid the din of hundreds of yacht whistles, the boom of cannon and the shouts of thousands of tumultuous Cambridge men and sympathizers who almost Jumped out of the observation train to greet their crew. Harvard won the race by less than two lengths and a half. Her time was 23 minutes and 2 seconds, Yale's 23 minutes. 11 seconds. The time was not fast. While the crews had the tide with them they had a brisk quartering wind which made fast time impossible. The record for the course is 20 minutes 10 seconds, made by the Yale crew in 1888. The question of the conditions this afternoon in the minds of many and es pecially according to the theories of Yale men, played an Important part 1n the race. The time set for rowing the race was 4 o'clock and when at 3:30 o'clock Referee Richards with the judges. E. C. Storrow for Harvard and W. W. Skiddy for Yale, steamed up over the course in toe Scout, the wind was blowing ominously strong for Yale. It has been admitted ever since the crews reached the Thames that Har vard had the best men physically and that Yale's only hope lay In superior rowing. The Yale coaches knew the strength of this comparison and when Referee Richards asked General Skid Continued on Second Page.) DEAD AT THE THROTTLE. Engineer on Boston-Washington Colo nial Express Discovered by Fireman. Philadelphia, June 2S. The Colonial express from Boston to Washington on the Pennsylvania railroad arrive here to-night with George Maxwell, the en gineer, dead at the throttle. The train left Trenton on time. There are no stops between that point and the North Philadelphia station, but it is customary to slacken the speed at Frankford Junc tion, in the northeastern section of the city. When this was not done James Hackett, the fireman, called to Engineer Maxwell, who was at his post. Receiv ing no reply, Hackett climbed over to the engineer's side of the cab and found him dead, his fingers rigid upon the throttle. An engineer who was among the passengers was pressed into service and brought the train to Broad street station. Maxwell's death was due to heart disease. He was forty-five years old. . i MOTOR BOAT RACE. Starts Irom Marblehcad, Mass., to New York. Marblehead, Mass., June 28.

Harvard Selects Bacon Comments' on the Race Julian Curtlss Thinks the Secret of the Crimson's Success Her Superior Power and Strength Coach Kennedy Agrees With Him. Gales Ferry, Conn., June 28. The victory for Harvard In the 'varsity race was Joyfully celebrated upon the return of the oarsmen to Red Top. Captain Filley and his fellow oarsmen, disappointed, at the result of the fresh man and four oared races, went into the 'varsity event with a determina tion to work for Harvard to the very last ounce of strength. The Harvard captain many times shook the hands of his crew upon the return to Red Top, where they were received by a great shout of welcome from the Har vard contingent. The first thing the Harvard men did was to line up on the float and prepare for a plunge into the Tames. Afterward there were congrat ulations, dinner and celebration. Robert Noyes, No. 6 of the Yale 'var sity, who was overcome at the finish of the 'varsity race, recovered by the time the Yale launch arrived at the crew quarters. The Yale oarsmen showed their confidence in his effort by electing him captain of next year's 'varsity crew. Noyes is a member of the class of 1908 and rowed on the freshman crew last year. He lives in St. Paul, Minn, ' . Speaking of the 'varsity race, Julian W. Curtiss, Yale's graduate athletic advisof, said: "The secret of the race Is that Har vard had the superior power and strength. Had the water been smooth er, It might have been different, but re member we have no apologies to make. Harvard had the stronger crew." . George St. John Sheffield, the old Yale supported said: "Yale lost the race In the last quarter when Noyes collapsed. Up to that time the Crimson was never two seconds in the lead of us. Harvard had a power ful eight." Coach John Kennedy, of the Yale crew, who has guided the Eli crews to many a victory, agreed with Mr. Cur tiss' that the Harvard crew had the powe?, The Yale crew left for New Haven early In the evening on a special train. The happiness which reigned at the Harvard quarters could scarcely be over-estimated. Dr. Manahan, the crews' physician, said that all the 'var sity oarsmen finished In splendid condi tion. Captain Filley was the proudest of all. "We worked desperately for this race," he said, "and I believe we won It absolutely upon merit." Coach Wray was scarcely less Joy ful, for he had won the honor of coach ing the first successful crew of the Crimson since 1899. "We have worked hard," he said, "and the men were in splendid condi tion. Naturally I am pleased at the success of the stroke that I have taught.'' .During the evening the Harvard 'varsity and their friends started sev eral bonfires in honor of the victory. Some of the oarsmen planned to leave for home to-night and the rest to-mor-rotf. The election of the 'varsity captain for next year resulted in the choice of Robert Low Bacon, '07, of New York, son of Robert Bacon, assistant secreta ry of state. He rowed No. 6 in this year's crew. . Four Killed. Philadelphia, June 28.

Wife Frankly States That Her Reason for Refusing to Testify is That She MlKht Say Something: That Would Do Harm to Her Husband Finally Ex cused Only Twenty Years Old Thaw Sends Message to Anthony Comstock Receives Letter Which He Thinks Would Pay to Investigate. New York, June 28 Harry Kendall Thaw was indicted to-day for murder in the first degree for the killing of Stanford White last Monday night on the Madison Square roof garden. His wife, Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, appeared as a witness before the grand jury, but begged to be excused from giving any testimony whatever. Thaw will plead to the indictment in court to-morrow morning. No time will be set for the trial until District Attorney Jerome re turns to the city next week. The grand Jury's consideration of the case was brief and followed a perfunc tory inquest before a coroner's jury. Thaw calmly listened to the testimony, and while the jury was out he chatted with his counsel and a policeman sit ting near, laughing aloud at one stage of the conversation. , Stanford White was buried to-day with simple ceremonies at St. James, L. I., where he had a summer home. The services were held In the St. James Episcopal church. In the opinion of the physicians who performed the autopsy on White's body, the life of the architect was. shortened not more than two years by the bullets from Thaw's pistol. He was found td be suffering from Bright's disease, from Incipient tuberculosis and from fatty degeneration of the liver. Thaw sent a message from the Tombs to-day to Anthony Comstock, president of the Society for the Suppression of Vice, saying he had received a letter which it would pay Mr. Comstock to In vestigate. ..An agent of the society call ed upon Mr, Thaw this afternoon, but was not admitted at that time. It was said that either the agent or Mr. Comstock himself might see Thaw to-morrow. Mrs. Thaw's appearance before the grand Jury had been looked forward to with considerable interest, as it was thought she. possibly would take ad vantage of the oocaslon to theow some additional light upon the tragedy. When she appeared and requested to be ex cused from testifying the Jury took the view that, for the purpose of an indict ment, her evidence was not necessary. After being ushered into tha grand jury room Mrs. Thaw was asked: "What is your name?" "Evelyn Nesbit Thaw." "How old are you?" "Twenty years." "When did you last see and meet Stanford White, the deceased?" Without becoming excited in the least, but in a calm and rather forceful man ner, she replied clearly, with emphasis on each word: "I hope that you gentle men will not insist that I shall answer any more questions. I must respectful ly decline to answer the questions you Intend to ask me. I say this with all respect to you, gentlemen." Mr. Garvan then asked her: "Why don't you wish to answer?" Addressing the foreman, Mrs Thaw replied earnestly: "I might say some thing that might do harm to my hus band, and a wife ought to do all she can to protect her husband. I beg of you not to insist in putting further ques tions to me, because if you do I will have to decline to answer." Addressing the jury, Mr. Garvan is said to have stated that the district at torney's office would not insist unless the grand Jury so desired. The Jury men then hold a short consultation among themselves and finally, after a few minutes, the foreman, turning to Mrs. Thaw, said: "The grand jury has no desire to ask further questions un less you desire to tell them anything." Mrs. Thaw simply replied: "Thank you." She was then excused. Miss May McKenzle, the actress friend of Mrs. Thaw, who was said to have been called before the grand jury, was not sworn in as a witness. She and a number of other witnesses have been subpoenaed In the John Doe pro ceedings which are to be conducted by the district attorney's office. E. Foote Thompson Held Up.

' MUCH MORE DRASTIC BILL MEASURE AGAINST RAILROADS OWNING TROLLET LINES. Aimed at the Consolidated Massachu setts House Disposes, In Summary Fashion a More Conservative Bill and a New One is Drafted and Adopted Prohibits Absolutely. - Boston, June 28. The bill reported last night by the legislative committees on railroads and street railways, Bitting Jointly, was disposed of in summary fashion in the Massachusetts house of representatives to-day. This bill di rected the attorney-general to test be fore the supreme court the legality of the control of street railway properties by railroad corporations, particularly the Consolidated, and to forbid the ac quisition of new street railway proper ties by railroad corporations pending a decision by the supreme court. After a lengthy discussion the report of the committee was rejected and a bill drafted by Speaker Cole was sub stituted in its place and finally passed by the house by a two-to-one vote. The Cole bill Is more drastic than the bill reported by the committee, and Is believed to reflect the sentiment of the governor on the proposed legislation. The substance of the bill is to prohibit absolutely railroad corporations from controlling street railway lines. The bill also provides that railroad corpora tions must dispose of their street rail way holdings within six months after the passage of the bill. It is said that the bill may be sub jected to many alterations when It reaches the senate. DID NOT HA VE DRESS SUIT. So President's Friend Would Not Attend White House Dinner.
