THURSDAY EVENING, JUNE THOUSANDS AT ANNUAL YALE HARVARD RACES Interest is Very Keen in All Three Contests Between the Crews of the Crimson and Blue on Thames River. OLD III SENTIMENT STRONGER Harvard, However, it Still the Favor it Because of Veterans and Vic- ' tories of Past Two Years Course is Changed. Harvard Wins First Two. The Harvard Freshmen eight beat Yale three lengths. Tho Harvard Varsity four finished four length ahead of Yale. Harvard's weight stamina told In tho Freshmen race, Yale weakening only in the last half mile. .Now London, June 30. Thrco hard races for the Harvard-Yale crews and a ccorching for the spf-ctators, were the early morning predictions for Mm race today on the Thames. John Ken nedy, veteran coach of Yale, ventured the first while the Harvard-Yale men agreed on the second. The morning dawned clear and tho river was smooth. Thousand, throng ed the river banks. Yachts formed a lane three miles or more t hi ouch Lwhich the crew row. Two war craft gave a business look to tho scene. As tho hour approached for the races, special trains began pulling Into the station, unloading collegians and the streets became congested. Tho morning races with the fresh men eights tart at the drawbridge. Its a straightway pull of two miles for the freshmen, and practically the same for tho fours. To a large proportion of spectators today a finish of a varsity race at the drawbridge Is a novelty. Tho course of the eights recalls President I lad ley's words nt the recent Alumni din ner at New Haven, when ho said "Pill Taft of '7S Is In the eel grass on tho second mile of the course," und ho added, "Yale won many victories In tho third and fourth mllo after get ting out of the eel grass." Harvard Rules a Favorite. To the Yale and Harvard oarsmen the simile Is an apt one. The start of the race is abreast of red top over to wards tho westerly bank. Yale took the west course for the afternoon' race on account of tho prevailing westerly wind. The disadvantage of the eel grass is tho reason the course this year was shifted easterly a tri fle, helping out the crew on the wes terly side, so In effect the first race down rtream in several years disposes to some extent the former bugaboo of the"eel grass." The morning races had the advan tage of the flowing tide, which hero Is very strong. While tho Crimson has been the ruling favorite for tho varsity and freshmen eights, thero Is some slight change of sentiment over night in spite of the fact Harvard men are here In great numbers. Har vard nevertheless went to the start this morning a flight favorite, based on veteran material and two success ive victories. HIS STATEMENT INCORRECT. Baggage Car of Northwestern Train Only Car Which is Not Steel. Representatives of the Chicago & Northwestern railroad In this city as sert that the train which cornea to this city Is not composed of mixed wooden nnd steel coaches as recently claimed, but that the entire train with the ex ception of the baggage car. Is com posed of steel cars. The baggage car is partly steel and partly wood and Is up-to-dnte In every way. Local repre sentatives of the road claim that the commercial man quoted in this paper last evening as stating that the wooden nnd steel cars were mixed, with the result that in case of an accident the Hteel cars would likely telescope the wo,len ones, was misinformed. They mv that there would be practically no danger of such a catastrophe as he train is now arranged. The cars which nro used for the passengers are built most entirely of steel, this part of the train being Intact. nrw York riKt- GENERALLY FAIR TONIGHT AND FRIDAY. SLIGHTLY COOLER.

ISH FORCED LABOR. Hrusscls, June 30. Congo reforms for which the governments, churches, mlH.slonury societies and other organ izations throughout a large part of the civilized world have been working for years, will become an accomplished fact tomorrow, when tho plans for mulated by the Belgian ministry of tho colonies and approved by King Allert will become effective. Simul taneously a large area of the Congo region will , be opened to free com merce. The reform include the suppression of polygamy, the substitution of native for white officials, a reduction In tho taxos which will .be collected In mon ey and not paid In labor, and the re striction of obligatory labor on the part of adults to the works dedicated to the Improvement of their own con ditions. , The most vital feature of the reform program is the provision for the sup pression of forced la.bor, a 'situation which has rendered possible tho ter- j rible conditions which In the past nave roused the horror of the civilized world. . , Under the Leopold regime the col lection of taxes through labor instead of money, enabled that monarch to work his immense rubber trade free of expense. A quota! of so much rubber, In lieu of taxes, was demanded, from each village, an amount which would require the labor of every adult In the village virtually all of his or her time. Failure to produce the allotted portion at the required time was fol lowed by the immediate punishment at the hands of the black soldiers of the Congo government, consisting too fre quently of tortures, mutilation, or death. LATTER DAY SAINTS MEET. Reglna, Sask.. June 30. A conven tion of the Church of Latter Day Saints for the provinces .. T Saskatchewan and Alberta began here today and will continue until next Monday.

MOVES TO HAVE U. S. INTERVENE PETITION WITH 700 NAMES PRE SENTED TO GEN. ESTRADA, ASKING U. S. TO TAKE HAND TO STOP WAR. Washington, June 30. Intervention in the Nlearaguan situation came to the foie ngain today when United States Consul Moffat, at Pluenelds. telegraphed the state department that a petition with 700 signatures had been presented to General Estrada asking that the United States Intervene. The department has heard nothing from General Estrada himself. The sugges tion that the United States Intervene is taken as a counter move to offset the undesirable Impression likely to result from the refusal of General Es trada to accept the proposal of the Cartago court of Justice to have the warfare ended by mediation. ' Tho dispatch from Mr. Moffat also told about the courtmartlal of Win. I'. I'ittman. the American engineer held by the Madriz forces as a prisoner of war. The statement of tho consul on tills point, taken In connection with the facts is that the treatment of IMttman has been a subject of diplomatic In vestigation, led by tho department to the conclusion that Tillman's court martial was premature. Senor Corea, representative of the Madriz government In this city, to day received two dispatches from Ma driz, one denying many of the reported antl-Amerlcan manifestations nnd the determination of his government to keep them from resulting In harm to Americans In Nicaragua. The first telegram read: It Is false that the revolutionists are In control. Chontales. Acoyapa, San Yubaldo are In our power. The revolutionists are near Acoyapa In a very reduced number and with few supplies. Will soon be beaten In the way that a revolutionary band that ap peared near Mombacho was destroyed at Escalantillo with death of Its chief Talavera. The entire country. Includ ing the Atlantic coast, has submitted to the government authority, with the exception of IMueflelds and Rama." The second read: "The government haa given orders to stop the antl-Amerlcan manifesta tions and has made more rigorous the censure of the press In this particular. The government guarantees complete safety to all American citizens. You will call to mind the casea of Fowler, Cannon and rittman." WORD PICTURE : OF CEREMONIES AT RENO CAMPS Jeffries Goes About Business of . Training for big Bout Like Pick Handler on Rail t road Tracks. MANY WATCH THE MtN WORK White Gladiator is Serious, but He . Laughs at Times Champion Gives 4 Musical Prelude to His Spar ing Scenes. Reno, Nev., June 30. Hero Is a view of the daily morning ceremony that Is helping to make Reno a mime In the world'a mouth wherever wires spread. What happened this morning at Alca na Springs .before the sun was well up over the ragged tojs of Woshie range may bo described as typical of what has been appenlng for a few days, and will continue to be a daily morning ceremony until July 4. Thero Is a valley, blue-green with alfalfa, a sun-baked range of moun tains on the east .and tho snow uplotched Sierras on ,. the wet; a sprawling, white" bathhouse over a hot soda spring on one side of a dusty road, and on the other a low cottage covered with vines. Behind tho cot tage is a tent, and the tumbled bed ding on a cot with it always holds the spectator's eye for a moment. Whispers in Their Ears. Near the, tent and Just where two cottonwood trees mingle their branch es to make a shade .Is a small dancing platform, and Its surface Is. covered with little lumps of rosin and rosin dust. On tho night . before Jack Jeffries draws this -or. that newspaper man aside and whispers Th his ear that he'd bol(or get out to the .springs . early next morning, for the, big. fellow in going to get to work before the pun Is too hot. l'.rother Jack-.gives this advice tentatively and with an air as of In some degree betraying a confi dence. The electric car that leaves Vir ginia fltreet, In tho center of Reno at 7:30 o'clock the next morning Is com fortably crowded. Tho occupants are mainly newspaper men, photographers nnd sports who have dropped Into town from Pacific coast points. Hy 8:20 o'clock there are about 100 people about the dancing platform In the yard of the training quarters at tho springs. The privileged ones are allowed to occupy the seats along the four sides of tjjie platform, llehlnd these seats the plain citizens of Reno are allowed to stand. A long, lanky negro Jn a black bath- j robe comes through tho kitchen door and climbs onto tho platform; that's Bob Armstrong, one of the trainers and a sparring partner. Then through the door comes Jeffries. The fighter's face Is flatly unemotional; he goes about his business with the dispas sionate air of a pick handler on the railroad tracks. They Put on the Gloves. The negro drops his bathrobe and both put on the gloves. While they do .so the Interlude Is filled with nod dings and whisperings among the se lect spectators on the benches. Jef fries and the negro begin to wpar. They go for three rounds. During each of them the white fighter with the flat, uninterested expression on his browned face does his business with unbroken seriousness. "Top" Van court and Jim Corbett confer In whis pered sentences. They extol the speed which Jeffries shows. After Armstrong retires Sam Tterger Is taken on for three more rounds. In one of these rounds Jeff, for the first time, shows human emotion as he sud denly lifts Herger's guarding right with a sweep of his fist and crushes his right Into Merger's stomach. He laughs and the spectators Join. "How's that for high?" says Jeffries, and he continues his work of prac ticing crushing blows on Tterger's body only he puts a "pull" on his arm. After Merger come Choynskl and Corbett. For forty-live minutes of breathless boxing the spectators have all their expectations of thrills and shocks ful filled. Then, at the end. tho big man spends ten minutes more In neck-to-neck wrestling wlUi Farmer Rums. After this, with the same serious busi ness air, Jeffries stalks off to his rub bing room to be kneaded and mailed In the hands of his masseurs. Thus the ceremony at Mioana Springs comes to Its conclusion. A far different spectacle Is that which Reno attends In the afternoon out nt Ricks' Road House. Thia Is a vaude vlllo performance with a pleasurable dash of excitement thrown In Intermit tently. There are said to be three hundred automobiles In this little des ert city at present, and all one has to do to get to Champion Johnson s training quarters Is to stand on any corner and hold a $3 gold piece up to the sun. There's No Other Way. There la no other way, except on foot, to get there. Tho procession of 30, I9I0.. 200,000 WATCH NEW YORK FIRE SPECTACULAR BLAZE ALONG 1 WATER FRONTON HARLEM..

It takes fifteen minutes to make the run. The end of the Jour ney comes when the autos chug Into the front yard of the large, white hotel. In the parlor of the hotel John son, with his bass viol, entertains all comers with such tunes as "'My Money Never Gives Out." Accompanied by a lark skinned brother on the piano, iMr. Johnson, with his ever-ready mile of welcome, passes easily from one tune to an other. During the Impromptu concert, Mr. Jack McAullffe and Mr. Jack Root sit on the front steps with Mr. John l Sullivan and gravely talk over "pros pects." The Impromptu concert over, there Is an Interval of waiting. Finally, the hundred-odd folks who have motored up to Ricks dispose themselves on the grass around the ring erected on a platform near a cabbage patch. The champion. In sky-blue tights and with an American flag twisted Into a belt, soon appears. Then follows juggling with the medicine ball. The .Mr. Al Kaufman puts on the gloves and the colored champion plays with him through four languid rounds. Blocks Blows by Instinct. Johnson blocks blows seemingly by Instinct even while he Is grinning at one of his friends In the crowd. After Kaufman follows Walter MVmchon "Dave" Mills and Oeorge Cotton. There are occasional flashes by John son during these bouts of almost vi cious activity, and the spectators hold their breath at these Instants, waiting to see on of the sparing partners Jifted nto oblivion. After about an hour's work, when the champion disappears to his rub bing quarters, one old sport turns to the other, looks him quizzically In the eye and says: "Well, If he ain't the limit; nobody can get a line on him NO. 199 mmm 111 UUH IN PRIMES INN.

Graves and the American nun Ister to Sweden and his wife, Is In the county clerk's office here awaiting dis position. The bundle was thrown Into the office today by Mrs. Ida M.
