Harvard got a slight advantage at thr-ttart, but although Tale wa row ing a. lower stroke the Eli toon were on even terms with the crimson and at th tint half tnlle flag were lead- log Harvard by half a boat length. Then Yale settled down Into their gait of 28 stroke to tne minute which eh held up to th two and a half mile flag. Harvard raised her stroke to 54 and cut down Tale's lead. The blue tor a few strokes ran their up to 81 and at this gait held Harvard oven. The boat did not change positions over th next halt mile. At the three mile tins the noses of the shells were llgxagglng and It wag atlll dtber a and neither' race. Vale had dropped her itrok to 28 to th minute while Harvard wa still rowing 84. Abodt this tlrni It dawned upon th Harvard axptrt that Tale might hav some thing up her sleeve. Old Harvard oarsmen like & C.

Be fore the largest crowd that ever wit nessed t race on the Thames rlvei the Yale crew Thursday evening, row ing on an average of four stroke to th minute less than Harvard, held the big Cambridge eight even until th last half mile, when the blue 1st out their "peed and won a magnifi cent contest by a scant boat length. Never once In the whole four mile did the long graceful .shells cease to lap each other. Thousand of pel- tons crowded the observation trains and every kind of floating craft and those who lined the shore sent cheer upon cheer to the old rival! as they fought out one of the grandest races in the history of boating. Yale' time tor the four miles was 21 minutes and ten leconds: Harvard's 21 minutes and 13 second. The race waa accompanied by one disagreeable Incident. This was tbe arrest of E. H. Harriman, the railroad magnate, by Lieutenant Billard, Pres ident Roosevelt naval aid. Lieut Billard who was In charge ot the revenue cutters had warned every boat owner not to follow the race. IVe big "varsity struggle had ecarce ly been started when Mr. Harriman in a powerful motor boat, started to follow the race. Lieutenant uinarc and Chairman Schweppe, who Were aboard the "regatta committee boat, til '"Arrow" repeatedly warned Mr. Harriman to (top hi engine and get jut ot tbe course. Mr. Harriman not only paid no attention to them, but took a position right alongside of "the referee's boat and held It. Off the navy yard, lieutenant Billard sig naled tor a launch and tooted the revenue cutter whistle which flnall caused Mr. Harriman to look around. "You are under arrest, ir," thout- ed Lieut. Billard. - You will give yourself up to tms man who will take you aboard th Gresham to await my orders." Then It waa discovered that tbe man In- tbe motor boat was Mr. Har riman. Chairman Schweppe ot tbe regatta committee waa angry and b shouted to Mr. Harriman in terms that the latter could not mistake. Tbe millionaire leveled hi forefinger at Mr. Schweppe and yelled back: "Young maa, I will swe you later. Schweppe friend aboard th Ar row gave Mr. Ham man a genu laugh. Mr. Harriman saw no mor of the race, but waa detained, a any ordinary prisoner aboard th Ore asm antll after tbe rac wa over when Lieutenant Billard went aboard th Oreshanv and released Mr. Har rimaii, but ordered hi boat tied ap at the navy yard.
