Baron Von Brandensteln
Villiam, accompanied by the Emiress

for a short time, worked the

iccupation and environment made

Among the visitors to the race is
Vmbassador Tower.
rne principal suoject ui cuuvcisaion
among automobilists of all counries
gathered here is the extremely
langerous character of the roads
vhich to-morrow's race will be run
>ver. The course will be a circular
oute with no less than 15 (langerous
teep hills to descend,' twenty-five
isually difficult sharp curves to be
urned, four stretches of continuousy
zigzag road, four narrow bridges
o he crossed, three of which are at
he foot of steep hills and three anient,
arched gateways to be penerated.
Motorists who have inspectd
expatiate on the rocks which the
acers will have to face at all of th^se
angerous spots, and surprise is exiressed
that the autoists could make
p their minds to permit the race to
ie run over such a road. The general
xpectation is that to-morrow's race
rill be marked by a succession of
erious accidents.
A prominent French motorist,
.-horn your correspondent questioned
n this point, replied: "The race will
e a gory murderous affair."
The fact that the motorists conider
the course to be extremely
angerous is attested to by the sumloning
of thirty ambulance cars and
hundred doctors to be on.hand.

THE SCORE WAS 6 TO 3 iff %
The game between the local'team
and the Y. M. C. A. at Traction Park
yesterday afternoon, proved to be an
interesting one, despite the number
of errors charged to both. The hard
rain, which visited the city eariy m
the afternoon, missed the Parle altotret
her, yet it was responsible for a
large number of people remaining
away from the game.
Creel and Erankinburry, the Point
Marion battery, did the honors for
the locals, and their work was fairly
good. Ralph Fleming, the Grafton
captain, pitched for the Y. M. C. A.,
and Stewart, the clever local boy.
caught him.
Manager Watson has a team which
will race any of the organizations
from the surrounding towns, and are
capable of winning frcrn most of them.
The majority of errors was caused
by the fast ground, which the youngsters
had not played upon before,

NEW YORK, June "10?That it it
possible to lose $5,000 in 10 minutes
by playing "English faro" in New
Yorlc, and that the victim may have
no In?ml rernedv. were facts brought
our. in a case before Magistrate Mayo
in the West Side Court.
Frederick Warren., of Buffalo, was
the complainant, and the prisonet
was his friend. Peter Fo'rrestel, alsc
of Buffalo. The latter had a badij
cut head, vrhlch he stated Warren had
caused by striking him with .a cane.
Warren told the Magistrate that
Forreste! had told hint that a friend
of his"had made ?20.000,000 in Wail
street, and that the corporation which
he represented could be parted from
a great deal of its money, provided
enough was in sight to play a combination
against the corporation,
t'pon this representation, Warren
says, he drew ?5,000?the savings of
a lifetime?from a bank in Buffalo
and came to this city.
When he reached New York last
j evening, he says, Farrestel took him
i to a place and introduced ' him to
J seven other members of the corporalion.
Almost immediately a game
| which he afterward learned was call!
ed "English faro" was proposed, and
Warren was assured that he could
i not lose. Ten minutes later, however,
j he told the Magistrate, his ?5,000 had
vanished across the board, we then
turner! upon Forrestel, accused him of
robbery and struck him on the head
with a cane. Ke was unable to tell
the magistrate where the game was
played, and when Forrestel told the
court that he also had played and
| lost 83,500. the complainant was informed
that he had no redress, and
the prisoner was discharged.
"You really came down from Buffalo
for the purpose of beating somebody
else," said Megistrate Mayo, to
Warren, and in that case the law does
not help you, even in a civil way.
That has been decided by the Court
of Appeals. There is no evidence
of a crime, and I will have to discharge
the prisoner."
Mr. Homer Stagger and wife, who
was formerly Hiss Georgia Baker, of
the East End, arrived in the city
this morning. This evening they
will leave for Philadelphia, on a visit
to Mr. Stagger's home.
