HENLEY -ON -THE -THAMES, Exg.,
July 10.— The second day of the Henley
regatta opened with tine weather and was
marked by a large attendance, many per
sons being present who were detained in
The principal feature of the day's pro
gramme was the trial heats between the
Cornell University of Ithaca and Trinity
Hall (Cambridge) and New College (Ox
ford) and Eton College for the grand chal
lenge cup, the winners of which will con
test in the final heat for the trophy. The
lirst of these heats (the fourth of the
series) was between New College and Eton,
and was won by the former by a length
and a half.
Important as the heat was, it did not
engage the attention of the multitude as it
once would have done, bad there been no
international contest in which America
was a factor. Indeed, the interest in the
day's programme seemed to be centered in
the one heat between Cornell and Trinity
HalJ. After the heat between the eights
of New College and Eton College, the Cor
nell-Trinity crews got ready for their con
test. The interest in this heat was
sharpened by the universal comment upon
yesterday's fiasco in the heat match be
tween Cornell ami Leander. It was
thought the sharp diversion of opinion as
to (he justice of Cornell's retaining the
heat it had won unopposed yesterday
■would spur the Ithaca boys to efforts to
day which would show conclusively that
the result wouid have been the same if the
Leander boat had started.
±sut they showed nothing of the kind,
for the Trinity men beat them with the
greatest of ease. There was not nearly as
strong a wind to-day off the Bucks shore,
but the position of the Trinity boat on
that side was still worth something. Mr.
"Wiliand again acted as unii>ire.
There was no mistake' in sending the
crews off. On the word "go" Cornell went
off, pulling twenty-foot strokes for the
rirst half minute and* forty-six for the
minute. Trinity Hall rowed only twenty
one strokes for the half minute ana forty
two for the minute. Cornell immediately
took a siitrht lead, and at the end of the
rirst furlong was only a few feet to the
good. They went well and steady, in their
own style— a style that has been widely
commented upon here.
The style of the Trinity crew was a great
contrast to that of the Americans. Their
stroke was longer. Their body form was
not as good, though they swung much
At the upper end of Temple Island Cor
nell «as still the same distance in front.
Here the cheering .for Trinity was enthusi
astic, but it did not enable the men of that
crew to wrest the advantage from the Cor
nell boys, who led by a trifle and who
were increasing inch by inch until at the
qnarter-mile mark they had still more in
creased their lead, and with this advantage
had reduced their stroke to forty-four per
minute. Almost imperceptibly they im
proved their position, rowing with the reg
ularity of a perfect piece of machinery and
at the end of the next quarter of a mile
they had increased their lead to a length.
At the half-mile distance mark (the Faw
ley Court boathouse) Cornell led by half a
length, and it seemed as though they
would win without doubt. But suddenly
there came a change. About a hundred
yards above a point opposite the Isthmian
Boat Club's house Trinity was about three
quarters of a length ahead, and the men
were greeted with frantic cheers as they
continued up the course.
Hitherto there had l>een no sign of the
faltering of the Cornell men, although they
had fallen behind. They had merely ap
peared to be going slower and blower and
the Trinity crew faster and faster than be
fore, although the stroke of each crew was
But suddenly there came a collapse in
the Cornell boat. The oars went flying
about in all directions, suggesting the
antics of an attenuated windmill on a
spree. Hager, No. 3, and Fennell, No. 5,
almost at the same time missed the water
and nearly fell out of the boat. The rest
of the crew stopped almost immediately,
being exhausted and clearly outrowed.
That they were unable to stand any longer
was apparent to everybody. The course
had been too strong and the pace too swift
for the short stroke of the Cornell men,
and they had demonstrated that their style
of arm work was killing.
In the meantime Trinity kept on with
out the slightest sign of weakening for the
remaining thirty yards of the course, win
ning by about seven lengths. The Trinity
crew received a tremendous ovation as it
proceeded past the winning post.
The judges decided in the case of the
Cornell boat that the "course was not
In an interview this evening C. S. Fran
cis, the manager of the Cornell crew, said:
"Fennell is in bad condition. He 'caught
a crab' at the three-quarter mile post and
the handle of his oar struck him in the
side, inflicting an injury, the extent of
which cannot yet be determined.
"The poor fellow was doubled up with
pain, which was so intense that it was
impossible for him to recover as quickly as
the rest of the crew. Despite the pain he
was suffering he pluckily rowed the best
he could to the finish. I fear his injury
is really serious. There is a great dark
bruise on the groin where the oar Btruck
him. We constantly apply hot fomentings
Mr. Francis reiterated his statement
made in the afternoon that the Cornell
boys had been beaten fairly and added :
"The Trinity Hall crew is a good one. I
don't wish to minimize their victory.
That every boat must abide by it 3 own
accidents is true the wor.'d over.
"It would be unsportsmanlike to attempt
to excuse our defeat on account of acci
dent. I hope our English friends did not
overlook the fact that immediately the
*ace was over our men gave, as well as
they were able,*the Cornell slogan in honor
of their conquerors."
Mr. Francis said in conclusion :
"The crew will go out of training imme
diately, in view of Fennell's injury. It is
quite out of the question that he will row
again this year, if ever. Neither of our
two starboard substitutes can properly till
his place. The crew will probably sail for
home on the steamer St. Louis, which
leaves Southampton on July 27."
Mr. Francis took the news of the defeat
to Mr. Courtney, the coach of the crew,
who is confined to his room. Mr. Court
"The boys rowed as well as they could.
Nobody in England or at home has cause
to find fault. You must cheer them up."
The English Treat Rejoices in the Defeat

"English style, length and leg work
proved invincible. A more miserable col
lapse than that which occurred in the
Cornell boat was never seen before." .
The Daily News will say :
"It was a significant sign of the feeling

BANKERS DISCUSS SILVER
Its Champions Termed "Blath
erskites" and Foes of
Brayton Ives' Defense of the Presi
dent and the Recent Bond
SARATOGA, N. V., July 10.— Millions
of dollars were represented by the finan
ciers of the State assembled here to attend
the second annual convention of the
State Bankers' Association. The opening
session was held at 2:30 o'clock this after
noon, being called to order by President
Cornwell. Prayer was offered by Key. Dr.
Joseph Carey, rector of Bethesda Episco
pal Church, after which President Corn
well delivered the annual address.
The speeches by Treasurer JJames O.
Cannon, B. E. Walker of Canada and
Bray ton Ives were all devoted against the
silver movement. Ives said:
It is nearly a score of years since a financial
transaction of the Government has aroused so
much discussion and called out so many ex
pressions, both of approval and of criticism, as
the recent sale of bonds to a syndicate of
American and foreign bankers. In view of all
the conditions this widespread interest is not
strange. When the Government issued bonds
and '-greenbacks" during the war people took
them with full confidence that the Govern
ment would not only pay them when able but
would pay them in gold. Although the word
"gold" was not explicitly stated in the obliga
tion it was known to both our own citizens and
foreigners that "coin" meant gold. On the re
sumption of specie payments this meaning was
made known to all the world, and the three
years immediately following were the most
prosperous this country fcas ever experienced.
Until the free silver* men came to the front
no one at home or abroad doubted the intention
or the ability of the Government to meet its
obligations in gold. It is safe to say that the
embarrassment of the Government in this
crisis was due solely to their efforts. Their
vehement demands that silver should be given,
by arbitrary legal enactment, the same debt
paying power as gold in the ratio of 15.., to 1
when the market ratio was 33 to 1 shook the
faith of foreigners, as it well might, in our
Nation's honesty. That they should have been
aided by others in Congress for political or
personal reasons is a disgrace to those render
ing such aid. The President was working man
fully to maintain the honor of the country
while the majority in Congress was struggling
to besmirch it. The few high-minded and
public-spirited men who sustained Mr. Cleve
land were borne down by the blatherskite poli
ticians who sought their own success regard
less of the Nation's danger.
In conclusion Mr. Ives said regarding the
recent bond issue :
The power of the free silver men has passed
its zenith- They still boast and stagger, but
this is their sole stock in trade. No great party
will dare to go before the country with a free
silver plank in its platform. The benefits al
ready brought by the triumph of honest money
are too pleasant to be exchanged for the gloom
which hns marked the years in which the par
tisans of free silver have blocked progress. And
when the country sh«ll have outgrown this
stupid and wicked heresy and reached a condi
tion of wealth and prosperity whicn is its nat
ural heritage, It is altogether probable that this
sale of bonds involving these great principles
will be seen to have marked the point where
the people shook off both depression and op
pression and declared in favor of common hon
esty and a sound financial policy.
THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, THURSDAY, JULY 11, 1895.
WON BY THE HUSBAND
Fredericka Munn's Suit
for a Divorce Is
GOTHAM'S BIG SCANDAL.
A Case in Which Many of the
Four Hundred Were
LETTERS TO ANOTHER WtflllAN.
Referee Godkln Did Not Consider
Them Sufficient Cause for
NEW YORK, N. V., July 10.— Judge
Stover in the Supreme Court chambers
yesterday granted a judgment dismissing
the snit for separation which was brought
by Mrs. Fredericka F. Munn against her
husband, Ernst M. Munn.
The parties to the action are of social
standing and wealth, and have been sep
arated about a year. Mrs. Munn is a cousin
of Dr. Andrew V. Raymond, the president
of Union College, Schenectady, and Judge
John A. Miller of Newark, N. J., is her
brother-in-law. Her separation from her
husband was due to the fact that she had
discovered certain letters written by him
to a certain woman, wiiich led her to
believe that he was infatuated with her.
The Munns were married in Newark,
June 5, 1889. They lived there until May,
1892, when they moved to Brooklyn. They
remained there until May, 1894, and then
took up their residence at Glenside Park,
N. J. It was while living there that Mr.
Munn made the acquaintance of Catherine
Neuman, with whom his wife declared he
had become infatuated, and on whose
account there was a separation. Mrs.
Munn declared that her husband had
abandoned her for this woman. He most
positively declared that the accusation
was not true.
Nearly a year ago Mr. Mann sailed for
Europe on a business trip, and his wife
states that he informed her that upon his
return he would come to this city and pro
vide her with a home. He came back from
Europe on September 22 last, but instead
of going to his wife went to the home of
his parents in Brooklyn, at 277 Union
street, where he has since resided. Mrs.
Munn went to the Hotel Bristol to live.
She, in her action, claimed that he had
abandoned her and refused to contribute to
her support, and said that she had only re
ceived $100 from him from the time that
he went to Europe last summer. Mr. Munn
denied that he had abandoned his- wife and
asserted that the abandonment was on her
part. He said that when he left her he
had fully provided for her support and had
left ample means for her until his return
from Europe. He, however, declared that
all their troubles was due to interference
on the part of her mother and brother and
the re3t of the family, who seemed to have
gotten complete control over her and to
have alienated her affections from him
entirely. He submitted for a time to these
interferences on the part of her family, but
at last his patience became exhausted and
he asserted his rights and declared that
he would not be ruled by them any longer.
He moreover said that Judge Miller, her
brother-in-law, had spread scandalous re
ports concerning him, and that his wife
had permitted outrageous and unjust as
saults upon him by Judge Miller.
Upon learning of these facts, upon his
return from Europe, his anger and pa
tience became exhausted and he believed
that her affections had been lost to him.
and in a hasty moment told her that he
would not live with her any longer. He
was tired of her relatives, but was willing
to care for her independent of them. Sev
eral weeks after he had told her that he
would not live with her any loneer he
wrote her a letter in which he stated that
he realized that he had been ra'her hasty
in his actions, but at the same time it was
right for her to come and live with him in
the home which he would provide for her.
in answer to this Mrs. Munn sent a let
ter requesting an explanation of his rela
tions with the woman about whom she
complained. He sent a reply to this,
which was not satisfactory, and repeatedly
thereafter wrote to her requesting that she
should return to him, but .she never did.
While she was ill at the Hotel Bristol,
after the suit was brought, her husband
had an interview with her, but no recon
ciliation was effected.
The case was sent to Lawrence God kin,
as referee, who made a report recommend
ing that the complaint be dismissed upon
the ground that the abandonment by the
husband had not been shown, as he re
peatedly offered her a home after his first
hasty step. When the letters from Mr.
Mtinn to the woman of whom his wife
complained, tending to show infatuation
on his uart for her, were put in evidence,
the referee said that however wounding
such letters may have been to the feelings
of a faithful and devoted wife, he could
not find any authority to sustain the propo
sition that she could decline to return to
him after knowledge of them, and then
claim separation upon the sole ground of
abandonment. He therefore recommended
that the complaint be dismissed.
General Joseph W. Plume married a sis
ter of Mrs. Munn.

DETROIT, Mich., July 10.— Six men and
nearly a hundred horses were cremated in
the fire that destroyed the Case livery

The building was four stories high, the
upper stories being used as sleeping quar

started on the first floor and spread so
rapidly that before the occupants of the
building were aware of their danger all
means of escape were cut off. The fire
alarm was at once turned in, but the men

George G. Vest of Missouri sailed on the

DES MOINES, lowa, July 10.-The well
organized forces of General Francis Marion
Drake of Centerville achieved a signal vic
tory in the Republican State Convention
this afternoon, when he was nominated for
Governor on the sixth ballot, after one of
the most warmly contested ante-conven
tion campaigns ever witnessed in lowa.
General Drake had as his chief competitor
ex-Benator James F. Harlan of Mount
Pleasant, a man universally respected in
lowa, and especially beloved by his party
because of the conspicuous part he took in
the politics of the country during Civil War
period, and because of bis friendship for
President Lincoln. General D-rake is
equally popular, and he pitted against the
enthusiasm of the Harlan supporters a
shrewdly organized following of working
The third strongest candidate for Gover
nor on the opening ballot, ex-State Sena
tor Matt Parrott of Waterloo, was given
the second place on the ticket, defeating
for renomination Lieutenant-Governor
Dungan of Chariton.
There were seven other candidates for
Governor — J. B. Harsh of Creston, E. S.
Ormsby of Emmetsburg, J. L. Kamrar of
Webster City, W. 11. McFarland of Esther
ville (the present Secretary of State), Sen
ator A. B. Conway of New Sharon, P. C.
Letts of Marshalltown and W. S. Russell
of Perry. The strength of each rapidly
disappeared after the first ballot.
Supreme Judge Josiah Giren of Dcs
Moines, Superintendent of Public Instruc
tio Henry Sabin of Clinton and Railroad
Commissioner George W. Perkins of Far
ragut were renominated without difficulty.
There was no contest over the platform,
which ignores the prohibition question
among State issues as being out of politics,
and, after denouncing the Democratic ad
ministration for its incompetency, practi
cally reaffirms the Minneapolis platform of
1892 on the leading national issues. No
attempt was made to secnre a declaration
for free silver. A resolution adopted at the
caucus of the Second District delegates, fa
voring a law permitting the manufacture
of liquors in the State, was presented to
the committee on resolutions, but was ig
nored. Senator Allison was present and
received a warm welcome, but did not
make a speech. The platform indorses
him for President.
The convention was held in Calvary
Tabernacle. The auditorium will seat 3500
people and it was rilled to overflowing.
The number of delegates entitled to seats
was 1244, and nearly all were present. It
was the largest convention ever held by
the party in this State and nearly every
Republican of prominence in lowa was
The gathering was called to order at
10:45 a. m. by Chairman J. E. Blythe of

Mr. Lane in the course of his address

usual committees were appointed and the
convention at 11:40 adjourned until 2 p. m.
Upon reconvening the report of the com

on permanent organization, recommend
ing Lafayette Young of Dcs Moines for
permanent chairman and J. W. Willetts of
Tarau City for secretary, was adopted.
Chairman Young's address was brief and
devoted to ridicule of the Democratic
The convention then proceeded to the
nomination of a candidate for Governor,
nominatng speeches being barred. The
first formal ballot resulted: Drake 360,
Harlan 248, Parrott 208, Harsh Bts, Ormsby
84, Kamrar 80, McFarland 116, Conway 22,
Letts 24, Russell 10.
Drake gained stead ily and Harlan gained
at a smaller rate. The big counties of Dcs
Moines, Polk, Linn and Pottawatoinie
went solidly to Drake on the sixth ballot,
which resulted: Drake 864, Harlan 139,
Parrott 231, Harsh 2, Karnrar 2, Orrusby 2.

Ex-United States Senator G. G. Wright
of Dcs Moines, chairman of the committee
on resolutions, submitted the following
We, the representatives ot the Republican
party of lowa, in convention assembled, re
affirm our fealty to the great principles which
our National party from its birth has stead
fastly proclaimed in the face of nn ever-shift
ing foe. Wo congratulate the people of this
country upon the evidences of returning pros
perity, and rejoice in each instance of labor re
employed, wages restored and industry re
established upon a prosperous basis. In the
record of the building of our industries under
Republican policy, their paralysis under Dem
ocratic power and their revival with the re
pudiation of the Democratic party and the dis
solution of the Democratic House of Represen
tatives, succeeded by one election upon the
platform of the Republican party, the vindica
tion of the policy of protection is complete.
The Democratic party is convicted of obtain
ing power in 189*! under false pretenses. In its
platform it declared the principle of protection
to be unconstitutional, and in its campaign it
denounced the policy as robbery. But, with
complete power in its hands, its lawmakers
have utterly failed to carry out the policy to
which they were pledged. It is a farcical pre
tense for the Democratic party to claim credit
now for a measure of which nine months ago
its President withheld his approval and de
nounced it as a humiliating abandonment of
their cardinal principle.
The Senate bill, substituted for the Wilsou
bill, is not a measure which the Republican
party would father. It reduces the revenue
upon the luxuries, a method of levy more
effective than any income tex; it restores tax
ation to sugar, a necessity in every home; it
reduces the wage rate in many industries in
wh ich labor is the chief element of cost, but it
maintains in many of its parts the principle
which the Democratic party declared to be un
constitutional. To claim credit under it is to
claim credit for abandoning its own policy and
adopting the principle which it had denounced.
We deplore the fact that the Democratic
enlargement of our export trade, has destroyed
the reciprocity arrangements established
by a Republican administration. Its solicitude
for foreign trade has been exhibited only in
the admission of foreign goods to our own
market, without obtaining any reciprocal
favors from foreign nations. We believe in
the policy of reciprocity as the policy of prac
tical affairs, and that the admission of foreign
traders to the rich markets of the United States
should obtain for our people equal opportunity
in foreign markets.
We believe that the compensation of Jlabor is
the true gauge of civilization, and the welfare
of the laborer has been the constant care of the
Bepublican party from its birth. We are un
alterably opposed to reducing the American
workmen to open competition in our own mar
ket with the poorly paid labor of the Old World.
We denounce the doctrine that a tariff should
be levied with a view to revenue only, and re
affirm the doctrine which has wrought in
America the most marvelous industrial de
velopment ever known in the world, viz.: the
doctrine of protection to home industry.
We believe in not only maintaining the
higher wage rate for the laborer, but the integ
rity of money in which he is paid.
We affirm the declarations of the Republican
National platform of 1892, adopted at Minne
apolis, that "The American people, from tra
dition and interest, favor bimetallism, and the
Republican party demands the use of both gold
and silver as standard money ,with such restric
tion and under such provision, to be deter
mined by legislation, as will secure the main
tennnce of the parity of value of the two
metals, that the purchasing and debt-paying
power of the dollar, whether silver, gold or
paper, shall be at all times equal. The inter
est of the producers of the country, its farmers
and the workiugmen, demands .that every dol
lar, paper or coin, issued by the Government
shall be as good as any other."
We urge that the United States exert its in
fluence to establish with the important com
mercial nations of the world such an interna
tional agreement as will enable this country
to reopen its mints to the free and unlimited
coinage of both metals withont loss of one or
the other from the volume of our money.
Resolved, That the honest and industrious
immigrant who comes to our land with the
intent to become in good faith an American
citizen is always welcome. None other should
be permitted to come. We favor the amend
ment and more stringent enforcement of the
immigration laws, so as to exclude criminal,
pauper, and all other undesirable classes,
whose presence tends to degrade American
labor and incite disorder.
The Republican party, ever mindful of the
patriotic services and sacrifices of the veteran
soldiers of the Republic, reaffirms its position
in favor of liberality to the Nation's defenders;
we favor the granting of pensions to all honor
ably discharged Union soldiers and sailors
whose disabilities justly entitle them thereto.
We congratulate the people upon the fact
that the State of lowa will be represented in
the Fifty-fourth Congress by two Senators and
eleven Representatives who are sealous and
fearless advocates of Republican principles,
and whose services in the past we heartily
commend. With especial pride do we remem
ber the distinguished services of our senior
Senator, whose long and honorable record as a
servant of the State entitles him to expressions
of our full confidence and our enduring affec
tion. We hail with satisfaction the universal
desire of the Republicans of the State to con
tinue him in his present field of usefulness
until called to the larger services of the nation.
The platform was adopted without ob
jection or debate. The convention then
