Henley. On Thames, July 3. The
coveted Grand Challenge cup comes to
the United States.
Two American elght-oared crews
the Union Boat club of Boston and
the Harvard university second crew
were left to fight tomorrow for its
possession by victories today in the
semi-final heats over Winnipeg and
Maynce, respectively.
Both were exciting races run in
record time and won only after a
hard struggle near the finishing line
in each instance.
Wet weather and a strong wind did
not cause either of the American
teamB to vary their almost perfect
watermanship, which has called forth
the admiration of English experts.
Record Time Made.
The race between Harvard and Win
nipeg, which came first, was a hard
one and resulted in the best time re
corded at thl6 year's regatta, seven
minutes flat. This has been beaten
only on three occasions in the Grand
Challenge cup, since official time rec
ords have been kepi In 1891 Lean
der rowed the final in six minutes,
51 seconds and this was equaled by
New College, Oxford, in the final in
1897 Leander In 1895 did the course
in six minutes, 58 seconds.
Winnipeg went away to 21 strokes
to the first half minutes and 42 to
the first minute, while Harvard struck
20 to the half minute and 38 to the
minute.
At the half mile the boats were
even, but before the half way mark
was reached. Harvard had pushed a
little ahead. The time was 3 minutes.
24 seconds The Canadians then
spurted and Harvard replied. Harv
ard then went in front and at the
mile was leading by three-quarters of
a length. They were rowing 36 to 1
the minute and retained their advan- j
tage to the end, although the Ca
nadians made a last great effort to
overhaul them.
.On crossing the line. Harvard seem
ed perfectly fresh. Winnipeg showed"
signs of faltering after passing the
half mile post and was rowed out at
the finibh.
When the second heat was started,
excitement was rife. The two shells
got off to a good start. The Germans
began with 41 strokes to the minute
and Boston with a stroke of 38.
At the half mile Boston was lead
ing by half a length, but lost a little
of their advantage before the half
v.aj raafk was reached.
A magnificent effort by the Ger
mans In passiug the grand stand
brought them closer together, but the
Bostonlans passed the line with only
part of the oiled silk covering the
nose of their boat In front. Their
time was seven minutes flat, the
same as made hy their fellow coun

GREAT BRITISH
STATESMAN DEAD
Death Summons for Joseph

ly in London Home.
YEARS IN PARLIAMENT
Pioneer in Great Britain of
Tariff Reform and Strong
Advocate of Imperialism.
London. July 3. Joseph Chamber
lain died here last night.
The death of Joseph Chamberlain,
which removed one of the most strik
ing figures of British politics In the
past generation, came as a surprise
as the condition of his health was not
publcly known to be any worse than
at any time in the last two or three
years.
Mrs. Chamberlain, who never left
her husband's side since he was
stricken with paralysis seven years
ago, and his son, Austen Chamberlain,
were with Mr. Chamberlain when
death occurred at 10:30 o'clock last
j night at his London residence. The
I event cast a gloom over the London
j season, w hich was at its height.
Last Appearance in Public.
Mr. Chamberlain's last public ap
pearance was at a garden party on
the grounds of his Birmingham home
on May 6 last when with his wife
and son he received several hundred
I constituents Mr. Chamberlain was

Tariff reforms, which, with impe
rialism were the chief policies for
which Joseph Chamberlain was
spokesman when enforced retirement
through paralysis occurred, have suf

son. Austen being almost the only
British statesman who adVocateS

The Right Honorable Joseph Cham

Britain of tariff reform, and the great
advocate of Imperialism For thirty
eight years, with a brief interregnum,
he represented Birmingham in parlia

activities was ended by a stroke of
paralysis The blow fell when he was

Many Years an Invalid.
Since that day the strong fighter
had been an invalid, a pathetic on
looker at the political game, pictured
always with his loyal wife, a daughter
of W. C. Endicott of Massachusetts,
who was President Cleveland's secre
tary of war. beside him. His chief
consolations were the growing politi
cal prominence of his son Austen
Chamberlain, and the loyalty of his
constituents Birmingham would not
despose her leader, although he was
no longer able to represent her upon
the floor of the house of commons
In each election he was returned to
his old seat, and appeared afterward
In the house but once, where amid
respectful silence, he made his way

his son and took the oath of office

wrote to his constituents, resigning
his seat, and saying:
"I cannot hope again to do my worK

and the constituency need the serv
ices of a younger man."
While his greatest claim to fam

vocacy for years of a protective pol

free trade he will also be remembered
as the bitterest and most forceful op

Crimean conflict, hut blotted out the
two Boer republics and made South
Africa "all red "
Devoted to Reform.
From the day he left University
college. London, to enter hl6 father's
screw factory at Birmingham, Joseph
Chamberlain devoted his best energies
to "the principle of constructive re
form." It was in 1868. just 32 years
after his birth In London, that he re
ceived hie baptism of public life, as
town councillor of Birmingham, later
serving as mayor for successive terms.
He gave his whole time to the cause
of municipal reform, and what haa
been previously one of the worst gov
erned cities In England, became a
model for municipal reformers.
In 1876 he entered parliament, be
Ing elected without opposition as a
Liberal from . Birmingham. Iu his
early years In the commons he sat
among the home rule Liberals with
whose aspirations he was supposed to
sympathize, but a few years later he
emphatically disabused his associates
in the house of any notion they may
have had of his belief In separate gov
ernment for Ireland.
In less than four years be was a
cabinet minister, entering Gladstone's
government in 1880 as president of
the board of trade, and in less than a
decade his hold on popular opinion
was almost as great as Gladstone's.
Government Board President.
After the general election of 1885
he became president of the local gov
ernment board, but by the spring of
1886 his and Gladstone's relations on
the latter's Irish policy had become
so strained that he broke with the
great premier, resigned his place in
the cabinet and left the Liberal party
never to return to it

who was murdered lu Dr. Carman's I

Since almost every one else in and

Among the witnesses called were

United States Far Short of Im
mediate Possibilities in
Foreign Trade.
Washington, July 3. Although a
world leader in the Interchange of
products among its ow-n people, the
United States' foreign trade is far
short of its immediate possibilities
Such is the conclusion of officals of
the department of commerce after a
study of the statistical abstract of the
United States for 1913 made public
todav. American home trade at pres
ent is estimated at about $40,000,000,
000. which Is equal to the internation
al exchanges of the world and ap
proximately ten times the value of
Its own foreign trade, now valued at
$4,000,000,000.
The abstract shows that the pres
ent American export trade of $2,500 -000,000
represents about $25 per capi
ta. A per capita basis equal to that
Of Argentina, it says, would nils?
American export power to $5,o00,000,
000 and one equal to that of Belgium
would bring Its exports to $10,000,000,
000 a year, while its aggregate for
j eign trade, when upon a per capita
basis as large as Canada's, would be
considerably over $13,000,000,000.
Railroads Lead World.
The United States commercial pow
er and its strong international power
is further emphasized in the abstract
It shows that the United States with
258.000 miles of railway possesses
one third of the world's total. It
lead! in the mileage of Its telegraph j
and performs more than one-third of
the world's service on its main routes
while its public debt of $1,000,000,000
Is less than that of Italy. Austria
Hungary, Spain. Germany, Australia.
Japan, Great Britain and is less than
one-sixth that of France and one
fourth that of Russia
While there have been frequent
temporary recessions in the course of
American commerce, yet the tendency
at- ever has been upward. From 1890
to 1901 American foreign trade grew
from $1,500,000,000 to $2,250,000,000.
an increase of 50 per cent, w hile from
1902 to 1913 it increased from $2,
250.000.000 to $4,250,000,000. a gain of
90 per cent
In the period since 1870 farm prod
ucts rose in value from $2,000,000,000
to $10,000,000,000 a year; the coal
output from less than 30,000. 00u to
