In the free for all?,0 wlU ,ve 10 glVe tne ACUele a Um pace, six hefts of which were raced on Thursday, Ben Como, the favorite, and Gloria came unSer the wire so near each other in the seventh heat that the crowd was in doubt as to the win ner until the judges gave the heat land the race to Ben Como. A crowd of 300 or more surged on the itrack in front of the judges' stand and with shouts and cries of "robber" mingled, demanded that the pools be declared off. , The management asked the Judges to declare the bets off, which was done. E. E. Bosca of Brooklyn, N. Y., owner and driver of Ben Como, ask ed the judges by what right this action was taken. He claimed that fraud must be shown and that further the judges should not be aware that pools were being sold.. He decided to let the matter drop, but declared he had raced) honestly and believed he should have received his winnings.

At a meeting of the Naugatuck Valley Driving asso ciation last evening a report of the fi nances was read. This showed that the races given at the Driving park last Tuesday were not a success financially and that the association lost about 4R. This was not dmcouraging, as it was felt- that the association is gradually reviving Interest in horse racing through the valley and consequently.lt was voted to give the next race meet on the local track Saturday, August 24. . President William F. Jones reported on the possibility of having the metro politan! meet which Is scheduled for Orangeburg, N. Y., the latter part of this month, transferred to this city. This arrangement has been virtually promised by James Donovan of Bridgeport, who is at the head of the metropolitan racing circuit, and would mean that many fast horses would be seen here. Classes were arranged for the next meet as follows: 2:17, for a purse of $100; 2:27, for a purse of $100; 2:45, for a purse of $50. Mr. Jones has been assured of the appearance here of such horses as "Full View," a fast pac er from New Haven, with a mark of 2:18, and "Ben Madden," a noted black pacing gelding owned by Mat thew Brazzell of Hartford. This pac er defeated "Banner Boy," the local champibn, twice last season, i CANADIANS A 8ITHPRISE. Won About Every Event They Entered In National Annual Regatta. Philadelphia, Aug. 9. 'Spirited, races marked' every one of the six events de cided in the preliminaries to the thirty fifth annual regatta of the Naitlonal association for amateur oarsmen held over the Schuylkill river course this af ternoon. The regatta was more inter national than national in character for three different countries were repre sented, the United States, Canada and Germany. The Canadians were the surprise of the regatta. They either were placed or won every event in which they competed. Jakes and Toms, rowing for the Argonaut H. C, of To-' ronto, were easy victors in the senior pair oared shells while Thompson and Toms won Just as easily in the Inter mediate dVjubte sculls. In the) associa tion single sculls rowed in one heat John O'Neill, of the Marys A. A. of Halifax, was second to Durando Miller, of the New York A. C. and-W. Bowler of the Don R. C, Toronto, was third. To cap the climax the Argonauts sen ior four oared: crew made a runaway race of this event, winning from the Ravenwood B. C. of Long Island 'and the Sewalhaka B. C. of 'Brooklyn. The latter crew was a favorite even over the Canadians and its defeat by both the Argonauts and the Riavenwood four was a big surprise. The Mound City and Crescents, both of St. Louis, were fourth and fifth.' Germany was represented in the re gatta by Waldemar Sand of the Hellas R. C, Berlin. The German rowed in the second heat of the intermediate singles but he was outclassed from the start, though in his favor it should be said that he has been ill several days of this week. There were only three starters in the intermediate eight oared shell race which was also rowed In one heat. These were the Potomac R. C. of Washington; the Fairmont R. C. of this city, and the Arundels of Balti more. The Potomacs led ail the way and won by nearly three lengths. ICUP FORFEITED 10 ADEILE SENECA CAN'T QUALIFY Commodore McDonald of Challenger Doesn't Want to Accept It. Rochester, N. Y.. Aug. 9. The Can ada's cup has been forfeited to the A the challenger.

We do not want the cup under forfeit conditions, There will be races for a flag but un- lless the Senaca's sail area is cut down It is claimed by the Canadians that the Rochester Yacht club members have known that the Senaca was over measurement ever since the contract was awarded.! The Canadians have made an offi cial demand for the Canada's cup un der the forfeiture clause of the agree ment for the races. EAGAN IN FINAL MATCH.

DENTISTS. Held nn Informal Dinner at Bridgeport. Some sixty members of the Connecti cut Odontologlcal society held an in formal meeting Thursday evening at Lehmann's shore house, Bridgeport, ai which there were present members from New Haven, Hnrtford, Waterbury, Norwich, New London and other cities. President J. E. Beardsley of Bridgeport called the meeting to order after an excellent shore dinner had been dispos ed of and Dr. F. L. Uhle of Bridgeport acted as toastmaster, acquitting him self well. Speeches of some length were made by Dr. Edward S. Warnes, an ex presldent, Dr. Monks of New Haven, Dr. Wille of Hartford, Dr. Hunt of New London, Dr. Jockson of Norwich and Dr. C. A. Ryder of Bridgeport. The gathering did not break up until mid night. Trading Element Disappointed. Prince and Whitley's market letter last evening says: The trading element, we think, was disappointed that the market did not show more rallying power, and at the close were bearlshly Inclined. Viewing the situation other than from an anti-corportion legislative standpoint both the better class of rail road and Industrial securities look in trinsically cheap, but until some Idea can be formed of how the national and state authorities intend to go. or some signs of more amicable relations are apparent between the two parties in terested, we don't look for any active Interest in the stork market on the part of the capitalists and therefore still believethat the market will contin ue largely professlona with the best chances for profit in saes on rallies. Old Homestead Burned. Preston. Aug. 9. The old homestead of Hansom Sholes here was burned to day. By forming a bucket brigade and working hard, the barn and outbuild ings were saved.

' INCORPORATED THE BIG 01 TO 05 CHURCH STREET. HI OFJACKSHEESH BABY MUMMIES AT $12 Can be Had in Egypt and Mummy Scraps in Proportion. Five hundred miie up the Nile, at Luxor, the thing which most impresses the average tourist is that there, hun dreds of miles from the modern world, with the desert on one side and the mysterious river on the other, there Is a, veritable Palm Beach' of hotels, marking the foreign invasion of the last few years. ; . All Egypt- seems to(bc imbued with tho spirit of digging. Everywhere one will see men and women, and even children, poking about iii the sand and among the rocks in seartoh ;of secreted tombs. In Luxor 'the diggers are fre quently rewarded with finds of beads, coins and eyen mumni'.e:' Along the batik on the Luxor side of the river, in the shop of lAhmed Abdel Rahin, there is an astounding bargain in mummified babies, and one in par ticular, which he pretendSs Is 3,000 years old, is offered for the trifling sum of $12. The circumstance Is not without itj patlietlo side; nevertheless, the first impulse of the average man is to laugh when the honorable Ahmed comes forth with the gay little case covered with hieroglyphics and tells you it Is a baby and urges that it be taken to America. The curious part of it la that many tourists do buy these tiny mummies, which to all appearances are genuine as to ago. Tourists buy also the mum my cloths, tattered and torn and stain ed, although wonderful In color and design, that have been wrapped around the dead bodies of the ancient Egyp tians. Also the venders of separate hands and feet seem to enjoy a good income durlns the season. It is in Luxor especially that mum mies are sold, and tourists are fre quently seen dickering with boy ven ders on the street for their store of detached hands, feet or fingers. Sell ing dead things seems to be a mania in Luxor. While our paity was returning from a visit to the tombs of the kings, a veiled woman riding a donkey offered for sale a beautiful green beetle which she had found on a palm tree and had impaled. A little further on a small girl carried a dead sparrow, which from pure Instinct she held out for sale. Dealers in scarabs are in evidence everywhere on ,the streets, and the traveler can buy these quaint orna ments by the hundred, by 'the dozen or by the piece and at all prices. It is seldom that-the street dealers have anything genuine In the way of an tiques aside from pieces of mummies, for when they do find them they sell them at good prices to shopkeepers, who know where to dispose of them In turn. 'Tiny clay or rnui statues of tho great Ramcses II are for sale at any price! It would no doubt please the great King, who so desired to be re membered that he erected dozens of temples to his glorification, to know that a 'Rameses bar in Luxor dispenses whiskey and soda to weary .travelers, and there is a Rameses antique shop and any number of donkeys are nam ed after the ancient .ruler. - Donkey riding in Luxor is one of the joys of the tourists, for the best ani mals in all Egypt are to be found here, and a visit to the native shops and later a gallop along the banks of the Nile by twilight Is a unique pleasure which remains long In the memory. Donkeys are hired by the day being only two shillings, with a small back sheesh for the donkey boy who runs constantly behind. These donkey boys are marvels in the matter of endurance. It Is fully 12 miles to the Tombs of the Kings and return, yet tha donkey boys keep clcse behind all the way, whether one gallops or trots, and in addition they carry lunch baskets, cameras or any other paraphernalia that the tourist may wish to have along. The dragomans of Luxor are also excellent, and far better than those found in Cairo. lTpon"'-the arrival of MEIGS & CO. Sole Offerings in STORE.- 00 STEPS FROM CHAPEL STREET.

Another, and a very good one Mo hommed Abdalla claims attention be cause he helped Oeorge Ade to find the temples and tombs. Both had books filled with recommendations, and it was interesting to note the names and addresses from across the Atlantic. Some of the dragomans speak several languages In a quaint fashion, al though quite well enough to maka themselves understood. French Is the principal language of Egypt aside from the native lArablc. .The once popular dahabeah system of traversing the Nile le now almost un heard of, for the majority of dahabeahs ara constantly becalmed, or they get stuck In the mud and have to be pulled off so often that the romance and com fort flee, and the choice is given to an up-to-date steamer with strong en gines and a competent crew of native navigators. No river in the world Is more diffi cult to navigate than the Nlles, for it has as many moods as there are hours in the day, and the current of the stream changes in such a short time that while one day .the deeepst part of the river is in the very middle, the next day finds it safer for the steamers to keep close to the bank. For this rea son, especially late in the season, there are no craft seen sailing on the Nile after dark, for it is only by the color 04 the water and by occasional polling that the shift of the stream can be j discerned. Frequently along the banks ar seen groups of coffee drinkers, who roaet their coffee in small kettles, then grind and boil it over the same fire.
