Time Good Under the Conditions. (From Special Staff Correspondent.) Tale Quarters, Gales Ferry, New London, June 14. For the fourth time this year, and for the third consecutive night, John Kennedy sent his premier eight-oar crew over the four-mile course, a record of time rowing un- heard of perhaps In all later year an nals of Yale's rowing on .the Thames. The time officially given out by Mr. Kennedy was 23 minutes 50 seconds, iwhich is considered by all capable crit ics excellent under the conditions exist ing when the crew went out. An hour or so later, when Harvard went over the course, things were entirely differ ent. When Yale went to the starting flag at Bartlett's at 4:20 the whitecaps were flashing on the river, and, in addition, there was a nasty swell on, with a stiff half gale blowing straight up stream. The eight got away at a steady low stroke, making a capital showing 1n spite of the rough water. There were times along the course who it was thought the oarsmen would have to stop rowing, the water being almost too choppy for the safety of the shell. However, the crew stuck to it and pulled through gamely. . The tide at the start was on the last of the ebb but on the last two miles little or no gain was derived from tide, as the first run of the young flood was mak ing itself felt along the lower reaches of the river, and the wind was a great handicap to anything like a record row. As a test of power and endurance the practice could not be surpassed and the crew stood It well. Contrary to all expectations, Rock well, who was kept at bow oar in the 'varsity eight this morning, was out of the boat in the evening, again exchang ing places with Auchincloss in the 'varsity four-oar. It now looks doubt ful for Rockwell making the boat, al though Captain Ide of the crew stated to-night that he will get a good square tryout. There is no doubt that the man -whft .in., the, opinion of the coach is the v ,best for the place will get it. The result of to-night's practice was satisfactory to all in quarters the time announced, although actually just one minute slower than that of Thursday night, was really better, as it was con sidered that the course was a good two minutes slowerion account of wind and rought water. v On the return of the 'varsity eight, Kennedy took the freshman eight up the river for a two mile stunt. By this time the water had smoothed down and was in fine shape for showing, up good qarsmanshlp. There was no attempt made to row against- time, but the crew came back to the float rowing a nice 32-stroke, the boat spacing out nicely, and the men swinging well together, . taking the stroke easily: The practice of the 'varsity eight was watched from the launch by Advisory , Coach Julian W. Curtiss, Mr. Barnum and Mr. Barnum, , Jr., " of New York, who all arrived at Broadview by auto during the afternoon. Mr. Barnum is an old oarsman and was a member of the class of '97. General W, W. Skiddy of Stamford, whose, close connection with Yale athletics is of long standing, also reached Broadview in the evening but too late to board the launch in time for the 'varsity row. He, however, went on the launch when the freshmen went out. John D. Merrill of the Bos ton Globe, who is an old favorite at rowing quarters, and is now occupying his Gales Ferry cottage, was on the launch during the practice. ' The Yale 'varsity four-oar went down stream for an easy paddle when the river was at its roughest, and ex . perlenced a taste of what the Thames can be like with a fresh gale opposing an ebbing tide. Crossing the seas, the shell at times rolled badly, and al though the' men are capital oarsmen she shipped gallons of water and once Or twice an upset seemed imminent. The shell was half full of water when it returned to the boathouse. The freshmen four had a little easy practice but did not encounter any rough water. The 'varsity eight got some of the waves aboard, too, and when Captainilde stepped ashore from the launch and was asked if they ship ped much water he said: "O, nothing; much," but a few seconds later, when he gave the order, "toss her," and the big shell was turned upside down and he got his share of the chilly fluid down his back, he was glad to alter his opin ion, genially asking the Journal and Courier man to consider his previous reply merely an error of judgment and not a deliberate false statement. Good nature prevails at Broadview. All the men are pulling fine and in good spirits. The gradual arrival, day after day, of old Yale oarsmen, and men who have grown gray since their own "varsity days, but whose love for shell and sweeps increases rather than abates with years, Infuses life and en thusiasm in the crews, and the pros pect is that 1807 will be one of the most interesting years of jthe oarsmen at Gales Ferry. With three time rows in succession, it seems as thoueh Yale will have an easy day Saturday, but as John Kenne day has already broken the record in this resnect he may decide to go the four miles just once more before the Sunday's rest. Walter Jennings' handsome steam yacht Tuscarora came up the Thames behind the Harvard crews Friday nlRht. and anchored below Broadview. The ,Yale men are, it is understood, invited to be guests of the owner on her Sun day, and will have a cruise in the sound. Examinations will finish in quarters Tuesday, and that afternoon the 'var sity and freshmen will antagonize each other in a ball game. The result is largely In doubt, each squad feeling confident of its ability to win. The idea suggested recently by Guy Nickalls, and quoted in the Yale News, that it would be a desirable thing to Invite an English university eight over to row the winners of the Yale-Harvard contest, was discussed somewhat by Yale men. While it is admitted that such an event would giv-s a decided fillip to Interest in university boating, the difficulties in the way of such a contest were pointed out. The chief trouble would be that the English oars men finish their training and do their rowing In the early spring, and after this it is almost an impossibility to get a crew together This is far earlier in the year than any rowing is done on this side of the Atlantic. It was ad mitted that U would be a. treat for English oarsmen to come here and row on so beautiful a course as the Thames affords, after their experience with the tortuous and tide riven Putney-Mort-lake course. HARVARD COVERS COURSE FOUR MILES IN 22:46. Crew Pulled Well Together but Some in Boat Were Distressed. (By the Associated Press.) Red Top, Conn., June 14. Harvard had her first time trial over the four mile course to-night. Conditions were not very favorable for fast time as the tide was very low and there were no favoring winds, while across the head of the stretch was a slight head wind. Wray towed the 'varsity shell flown streanj and then sent the men away from the bridge at a quarter past 8 o'clock. The 'varsity rowed along to the navy yard, where the freshman eight dropped In with a length's lead. From the two mile mark on both crews rowed a high stroke, averaging 34 and fought it out every bit of the way. The last 300 yards Farley ran the 'var sity stroke up to 38 and the senior boat cut down the lead rapidly, but the freshman eight managed to cross the line about a quarter of a length ahead. The work of the 'varsity eight Was the best seen this year. 'Every man showed up well and followed Farley without a break. At the finish several of the men were nearly rowed out but all managed to stay up after the line was crossed. The time for the four miles was 22 minutes and 46 seconds, Which is not considered very good for a four-mile time row and does not equal the Yale time of 22 minutes and 11 sec onds. Earlier in the afternoon the 'varsity fcur-oared crew had its first time row over the two-mile course. The boat started at the' navy yard Just, as the tide turned. From there they went to the mile mark, where the freshman four picked them up being a length in the rear. Bacon forced his crew to the limit but the freshmen pulled ahead and led them by three lengths at the finish. The time of the race was twelve minutes and thirty-four seconds. This was considered very poor, and Coach Wray was much dissatisfied with the work of the four. Lunt, one of the 'Varsity substitutes, is. laid up for a few days suffering with boils. Many of the men have . been troubled with boils so far this year; but Lunt Is the only man that has had ta give up. R. F. Herrlcks and E. C. Stor row of the advisory rowing board were here and watched tha work of the crews. Guy Norman of Boston has ar rived here with his steam yacht Limit and a new six cylinder power boat to remain until after the races. He has been entertaining to-day Oliver Fllley captain of last year's crew, and Theo dore Roosevelt, jr. SPORTING NOTES. Clarence Hobart, twlca champion of New England, found more than his match in Theodore Roosevelt Pell ,at Hartford yesterday. Thus does a new star in the tennis world rise. Harry Jope, for the second time this week, is on the hospital list. Earlier he was hit on the knee; yesterday he had a finger split by a foul tip, There is a possibility that Mosey King, the New London scrapper, a lightweight par excellence, will mix it with one Jeff Doherty. '.. That would make a corking card. Cupid Sherwood is a long way from a dead one on third, and Hayward at short is going some. The excuse for Slapper Kennedy is not apparent, how ever. 1 The final interscholastic baseball championship game goes over a week. The schedule and the nines did not agree. Bulkeley high, of New London, was scheduled for here to-morrow, but it transpires that that nine is not yet. champion of the east. Pretty late to find it out, or is it another try to stir up a muss just as New Haven is about to pluck the plum? . : , The grammar school athletic meet, which was going to be held Saturday, June 22, has been called off. There is so much going on at present in the schools, such as examinations, that the children do not have much time to spend In preparation for the meet. The Giants still in hard luck. But then, every National league nine has it in for the New Yorkers. Connecticut League Standing. Won. Lost. p.c.

SPRINGFIELD WINS. Beats Hartford Whalers Lose to Waterbury and Bridgeport to Norwich. The Brownies took their daily trim ming yesterday after io innings of good playing. Holyoke put the tin can on with eclat and verve, whatever that it. It was a good game to see, made so by snappy fielding stunts pulled off by each team. In these capers Cupid Sherwood shone as a lone star on a dark night. As the office boy reports the occur ence: "Onct, Sherry had a man on third wid one down and a Bcreechor come his way lookln' like a bully lilt. Nix. Sherry gobbles 'lm and holds dat Holieook guy fast to the bag and then chucks the ball across to Bunyan and nabs the runner by a mile. He's a wise one. Hully, gee, he get's the same chanct wid the next batter and does the same stunt again. Say, dat boy is the whole scream." In the seventh a pretty piece of fielding came. Lepine had gone out. Massey singled and Grubb got a two bagger. Baker was given a fielder's choice lift but Massey was caught at home on the play. A base on balls to Baker. Then Hayward knocked down a hummer and caught him going to second. New Haven also had a look-in In the ninth. With three balls and two strikes on Fitzpatriek, he got a two-sacker off Hodge. Hayward sacrificed him to third. Wade tried to lay down a bunt. It went up and- turned into an infield pop fly. Out. Sherwood got four wide one and Bunyan came up. No progress. He was caught on an Infield hit five feet off first. ' The winning runs were made by Botfcher and Thackara. The former singled, stole second and came home on Thackara's two-bagger. Hodges' out advanced Hoffman sent out a long fly and Thackara came home. In New Haven's half of the tenth the locals never came near a score. Umpire Charlie Kennedy was as dis satisfactory as usual. He was off on balls and strikes and was bad on base decisions. His favors, however, were evenly divided. Harry Jope was struck In the hand by a hot foul in the seventh and was bad enough hurt to retire. Connell went In for him, Curtiss being sent to the right pasture.
