Y., June 27.?While two men lay practically helpless In the Columbia shell, Cornell's varsity eight pulled out a victory to-day In one of the greatest four-mile races ever seen at Poughkeepsle. It was Cornell's raco by a scant length and a half, with only six seconds to spare. Her time was 20 minutes 10 4-5 sec? onds; Columbia's 20:16 4-5. Pennsyl? vania was third In the varsity; Wis? consin fourth, and Syracuse a help? less fifth. The Columbia freshmen eight carried off honors In the younger division, winning by two lengths from Cornell. Syracuse was third, and Pennsylvania but half a length behind. The Wis? consin freshmen were outclassed fifth. The otflclul time! was: Columbia, 10:13 1-5. Cornell. 10:2 2-5. Syracuse. 10:23 l-S. Pennsylvania, 10:21 4-5. Wisconsin, 10:38. I'ut Vp Game Fight. Syracuse fought In the var6lty fours, hut Courtney's men defeated them by half a length, with Columbia two lengths behind,, and the Pennsylvania four twenty longthrj In the rear !n the wash. No ofllclal time was taken. Coach Rice's bronzed squad from New York were easily the heroes of the day. Many had picked hlB varsity to win, and when the Blue and Whlto freshmen swung down under tho bridge to victory over tho sturdy Cor? nell eight, tho Columbia cohorts cheer? ed madly, and there was a rush of Columbia money to back the varsity's stamina and brawn. It was Columbia's first victory In sixteen years, their varsity crew having won In 1895. the year tho Poughkoepsle course was es? tablished. Columbia OfT First. Under a Ijazy sky, with a wisp of a Southern breeze stirring (lng and bunting, the varsity crows shot away from the mark at 5:15 for the gruelling, heart-sapping, four-mile grind. Co? lumbia was quick to take tho lead. For the first quarter mile they held It, then the powerful rhythmic stroke of Cornell sent the Red and Whlto shell ahead, until at the half-mllo Cornell led by half a length. It was clear now that the struggle ^ras between Cornell and Columbia. Pennsylvania held third place, a length behind, and Syracuse nipped her sides. Wisconsin lagged In fifth place and thus they held almost throughout tho first mile. Tho mile post passed, Cor? nell and Columbia, were so even that picking the loader became guesswork. It was nip and tuck between Cornell and Columbia for the next half-mile. Pennsylvania meanwhile dropped ten lengths behind, with Wisconsin at her side, and Syracuse a-straggllng "also ran." Wisconsin fought valiantly for third place, and Cornell and Columbia see? sawed for tho load with every ounco of strength. At tho two-/nllo mark Columbia came Into the lead, slowly at first, but with a strong, clear stroke. It looked at this point as If Columbia was tho strongest crow and had forced a load after two miles from a weakening Cornell olght. Cornell to Pront. Columbia held tho lend by nearly a length ns they passed, under the bridge ?tho thrco-mllo mark?but clear of the structure Courtney strategy camo Into play. Sheltered from the wind by the gay craft on the oust of the course near the finish. Cornell sturtcd a spurt which not only began to cat up Col? umbia's slight lead, hut so taxed her eight that Sago at bow reeled In his seat and Downing, stroke, wobbled pitifully. Both crows were stroking 35, but Columbia's weakness was apparent. She had rowed herself out, and at tho last quarter'Cornell began bor heart? breaking dash to victory. On she swept: steady, sure, precise. ? In the last 250 yards Columbia wavered, then rcllnqulsned tho lead sho had so bravely held, and another vic? torious Cornell varsity crew crossed the finish line. Fifteen lengths back Pennsylvania nosed out a close third from Wiscon? sin, and Syracuse struggled In a badly vanquished fifth. Chase Courtney, tho Cornell coach, said to-night: "It was a great race?one of the best. I think, that I evor saw. Of course, I am pleased with our boys. Columbia rowed magnificently. They were game to the Inst stroke." HEARS SENTENCE, FALLS Iii FAINT Edgar Brownell Must Do Five Years of Penal Servitude. [Special to The Times-Dispatch.) Suffolk. Va..

KING AND QUEEN LOUDLY CHEERED Attend Performance for Which Superb Program Had Been Arranged. London, June 27.?Trio King and Queen and royal and distinguished guests attended the second command performance in connection with the coronation festivities at Hl3 Majesty's Theatre to-day. For the occasion, Sir Herbert Beer bohm Tree had arranged a superb pro? gram. He had insisted that the play was the thing. Owen Seaman, editor of Punch, boldly paraphrasing Shakes? peare In the prologue composed for to-night's performance, emphasized the fact by writing: "The play's the thing. 1 Wherein to snatch a conquest of the J king." So the distinguished audience was treated to scenes from "The Merry Wives of Windsor," "David Garrlck," "Julius Caesar," "The Critic" and Ben Jonson's masque, "The Vision of De? light," In which appeared more than 300 actors and actresses, standing at the top of their respective branches in the profession, with minor actors and actresses Alling supernumerary roles, the whole number engaged reaching nearly 1.000. When Their Majesties appeared they were loudly cheered by a great crowd that gathered about the theatre. The audience Included all the royal and other special representatives to the coronation, ambassadors, colonial pre? miers and members of the Cabinet. DEMOCRATS WILL TAKE DP TARIFF (Continued From First Page.) hurry In its consideration of the bill, and had rejected his proposal for a definite time for a vote on the measure. He therefore thought no backward step should be taken. Friends of the bill on the Democratic side, however, ? led by Senators Stone and Bacon, said the Senate had evi? dently been off Its guard, and had permitted the bill to be advanced un? intentionally. Senator Penrose finally consented to having It restored to its former status. The feeling that developed over this incident was not so marked, however, as that which greeted Senator Pen rose's attempt to fix a time for the vote on the bills. Object to Definite Date. Insurgents objected to any definite date for the reciprocity vote, and the Finance Committee was extricated from the embarrassing position of having the other votes determined by an objection from Senator Snioot. Sev? eral Democrats and Insurgents would hate welcomed the fixing of the other two dates, so that the tariff bills could be forced up lo President Taft ahead of the reciprocity bill, and the latter held back as a means of forcing his signature to the others. The Ponrose request will be renewed from time to time, and whenever con? ditions seem favorable. Ultimately the friends of reciprocity may consent :o change the order, allowing the vo:e on the tariff bills to come first, but they will not do so at present, ner In taking this position will they cor sent for one to go through withott the others. In this attitude they have the indorsement of the President, who has advised them. In individual con? ferences, that while he does not shrink from consideration of tariff measures at this time, ho thinks thnt reciprocity should come first in the natural order. Ills position, as expressed to Senators who have talked to him is that the present session should be confined as strictly as possible to reciprocity, that being the subject which it was callei to consider. Senator Borah attacked the. reci? procity bill In 8 speech this afternoon, declaring that the, Canadian treaty cf 185-1 had not been of benefit to the country, and that the Canadians were nlways seeking an agreement thi.t. would admit their natural products lo the United States, while It Yrotectei their manufacturing Interests. Senator Martine, of New Jensey, who has qualified as a farmer In the" Sen? ate, had an Interesting passage at arm3 with Senator Borah. He queslionel the latter's statements as to the hene^ fits of protection to the farmer. "I've been looking up the Senator from Xew Jersey since he announce! that he was a farmer," retorted M\ Borah, "and I find that hjghtcen or twenty yearss ago he had a farm cf 120 acres In New Jersey: that he farmed It for a while, jilnyed politics n litt lo, ^and that finally a genorf.l manufacturing town growing up to It, he cut I'. Into building lots, bul.t houses-, and Is now many times a lane lord, and lias come lo the United Statts Senate." Senator Martine iinswered with heat, and declared he had been an activ'o farmer up to three years ago. The dialogue was terminated by Sen? ator Galllnger's observation that Sen? ator Martine must have been elected by a "straw vote." , The Senate was compelled to ad? journ hecausc of the storm that raged about the Capitol late In the, after? noon, which made further proceedings irn possible. Will Graut Conference. Washington, June 27.?The llrst step toward the settlements between the Senate and the House on the joint resolution providing for the election of Senators by direct vole of the people was taken to-day, when the Senate de? cided to grant a conference, and ap? pointed Senators Clark, of Wyoming; Nelson, of Minnesota, and Bacon, of Georgia, as conferees to meet a similar committee of members of the House, yet to he appointed. The fight in conference will bo over the acceptance of the amendment by Senator Brlstow, and adopted In the Senate, which retain*; to the Federal government the right to control the election of Senators. With agreement in conference unlikely. It Is probable | that ultimately the entire question will j have to be fought out either In tho penate or the House, on n motion to 'concede the demands o: the other hotly.

I told him X thought we could fix it up all right, and that I would promise not to 'ditch' him." "That Isn't a sweat box," interrupted Mr. Hynes. "Tell us about that." The witness began to say the sweat box process was administered in his room at a local hotel. Mr. Hynes did not quite understand, and asked If the witness said his room . was a sweat box. "It has -been a sweat box for four nights," declared Mr. Funk. It was in his, room, he added, that the dctoeiivo tolj him the name of his employer. As to Liquor ami Cigars. A little Hurry occurred when William J. Hynes. of counsel for Senator Lor imer and Edward Mines, of Chicago, president of the Hlnes Lumber Com? pany, asked the witness about his tes? timony that Mr. Mines did not seem to be under tho influence of liquor when the alleged request for a Lorlmer con? tribution was made. ? Mr. Hynes askud if he had ever known Mr. Hines to tuke a drink. Mr. Furjk said he had not?had not even seen him smoke u cigar. "What has that got lo do with this Investigation?" Inquired Senator Kern. "On. no ol'fenso was meant," replied Mr. Hynes. "i smoke, too." "I didn't think that It would be of? fensive to a man from Chicago to ask If he took a drink." declared Sen? ator Kenyon. William O'Brien, a lumber man of Duluth, Minn., and vice-president of the Virginia and Bulny Lake Com? pany, of which Mr. Mines is president, and of which W. H. Cook, another witness of the day, was a director, said they were in Mr. Cook's room at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Chicago about the time, of Senutor Lorimer's election, and that Mr. Hines livid a telephone conversation from that room. Mr. Cook repeated the testimony he geve to the Holm committee concern? ing that, varying it, however, by de? claring that when the telephone oper? ator rang up, and asked if Mr. Mines was there, she said, "Here Is Gov? ernor Deheeh.'' Mr. Mines was quoted ns saying i Lorlmer must be elected, and that ho would be down on the next truln pre? pared "to furnish all the money nec? essary. Mr. O'Brien testified that lie was ex? pecting a telephone call, and heard Mr. Cook say whan he answored tho telephone: "Mr. Mines, tho Governor wants to speak to you." "Did you hear the telephone con? versation'''' Attorney J. J. Henly for the committee asked the witness. "No. I am a little hard of hearing, and it was none of my business." Tho witness denied ho had ever claimed Mr. Mines was talking to ex Governor Vntes. Three detectives who are said to have, been employed to shadow Clarence S.
