The first day of the fifty-sixth anni
versary of the "Water Derby of Great
Britain was a disappointment to
all concerned. .Cornell was pitted
against the crew of the Leander
Boat club, composed of ex-Oxford
and ex-Cambridge oarsmen, and said
to be the strongest on the river.
There was some confusion at the
start, owing to . the presence -• near
the starting line of a number of
boats which seriously interfered
with Leander. Consequently the lat
ter was somewhat slow in getting
into position. Then, when the um
pire asked if the two crews were
ready, Cornell promptly answered
"Yes," and the umpire claims Le
ander did the same. This the Lean
ders deny. In any case the umpire
gave the word "Go," and the Cornell
crew shot away. But only half, the
Leander crew started, and their
stroke protested that they were not
ready. In spite of this the umpire
allowed Cornell to pull over the J
course, and awarded the Americans j
the race. The Leanders have lodged j
a protest against the umpire's de- |
cision, and it was referred to the
board of stewards, but the board
will not change the decision.
The weather this morning was :
warm and cloudy, and a light wind j
was blowing from the Buckingham
shire shore, but by the time the first
heat was started at noon a very
strong wind was blowing from the
same direction, giving the crews
there a great advantage. Sunday's
rest and yesterday's light practice *
had a good effect on the members of
the Cornell crew. They rose early
this morning, and after a light break
fast, which had been preceded by a ■
good rubdown, they arrived at the
boat house at 9:20 in good spirits
and confident of victory.
Hager, Fennell and Spellman espe
cially showed marked improvement.
Hager, in conversation with the rep
resentative of the Associated Press,
said: "I think I am all right again, i
although not as fit as a week ago."
Spellman and Fennell echoed the
sentiments of all the crew when they
said: "We will make the race of our
lives, and we hope for the best re
Charles E. Courtney, Cornell's
coach, was sick in bed, and did not
come to the boat house. The scene
on the river was one of unusual
animation, even for Henley-on-
Thames. The large fleet of house-
boats and other craft were moored
along the banks of the Bucks shore,
gaily decorated with flags and flow
ers, and filled with large parties of
fashionable people. The course was
staked out with white posts, upon
which numerous flags were flying.
The number of spectators was rough-
ly estimated at 120,000.
At noon, judging from the num
ber of American flags flying on all
sides, it was estimated that there
were fully 5,000 Americans present.
They came by coach and train from
London, prepared to sustain Cornell
with cheering and every other mark
of encouragement. Among the prom-
inent Americans here were Mr. and
Mrs. Richard Croker, of New York;
J. E. Roselle, of . Washington; F. N.
Juddson, of St. Louis; Elwyn Baron,
of Chicago; James J. Belden, of
Syracuse; Edward Knox, Peter Mor
ris and J. C. Cummings, of New
York. John E. Wilkie, of Chicago,
drove a party to Henley from
Maiden Head on a coach. His
guests included . Messrs. Percy
Fearn and M. A. Fuller, and the
two Misses -Fuller, of Chicago.
Messrs. Hall and Frye.of the Cor-
nell Glee club, and fully 300 Amer
ican students and their friends, as-
sembled in little knots along- the
course, with flags in their hands
and streamers -on - their -umbrellas
and sticks; prepared to encourage
the Cornell crew. , Also - noticed
among the crowds of Americans
present were Jefferson Levy.of Mon-
ticello, Va., and R. M. Galloway, of
New York. The theatrical' profes
sion of the United States was out
in force, prominent, among its rep-
resentatives being Henry E. Abbey,
Nat Goodwin, Sol Smith Russell,
Jennie Yea mans, Mr. Frohman and
Francis "Wilson. .

. The board, or committee of stewards,
this evening issued the following state
ment: : --. 7
"The committee, while deeply regret
ting the most unfortunate misunder
standing at the start of the Cornell-
Leander. heat, feel that they must
abide by the laws of boat racing, and
cannot reverse the decision of the um
pire and starter." 77--.;
The members of the Leander crew
are all wild against the umpire for
his decision in favor of Cornell, and in
their rage they say most unpleasant
things against the Ithacan boys. C.
W. Kent, stroke of the Leander crew,
said to a representative of the Associ
ated Press: "An English crew would
have never gone on. Had they any
spirit of sport in them they would row
again. Our boat was pointing into the
Island, and half the men were backing
water. I had my hand raised in the
air towards the umpire, when he
asked, 'Are you ready?' We all cried
'No!' I have rowed in many races and
I have never met with such unsports
manlike conduct. We had not heard
the umpire say 'Go' when the mess
was made."
Anpther member of the crew re
marked: "We do not want any more
such crews as Cornell."
After hearing the decision of the
committee of stewards Kent cried out:
"Well, I never want any more to do
with Americans or their crews."
"They are not sportsmen," said still
another member of, the Leander, "and
this is why Yale and Harvard won't
row them. They are not wanted In
England again. The only satisfaction
is, that they will get a good licking to
morrow." .7.77.
MORE OF THE. SAME.""- ■• _
. A determined effort is being made by
the Britishers,' led by the,Leariders,'{to
place the Cornell crew in the wrong'
and put the whole responsibility' for
the outcome upon their shoulders. The
Leanders and their sympathizers ig
nore the decision of their own umpire,
.which" is upheld by this evening's de
cision of the stewards. The general
cry is, "Damn America and Amer
icans!" As a matter of fact, the Cor
nell crew are not only strictly within
their rights, but, in view of the um
pire's orders, they could not well have
done otherwise. It would have been a
pretty Quixotic thing had they dis
obeyed the umpire and returned to the
post; and, meantime, Leander would
probably have gone on and won the
race. It ls the Leanders who are show
ing a most unsportsmanlike spirit, and
in every way they try to discredit the
Americans. 7 * IYYA~
Andrew S. White, a nephew of ex-
President Andrew D. White, of Cor
nell, said this evening: "It is the great
est outrage that was .ever perpetrated
on God's earth. "The attempt to put
the blame on our boys is a dastardly
thing. They could only obey the um
pire. Before the regatta we were
warned on all sides to beware of the-
Leanders. 'They will do you in any
way possible,' it was said. 'They will
run you Into the post, as they did the
French crew last year.'- We were told,
even before the draw, that things had
been fixed that our race would, be
against Leander. In our hearts we
believe that Leander went to the post
determined not to race. We had the
best position and had beaten their best
Mr. Francis., the Cornell manager,
said: "Our boys have done just right.
It must be remembered that Leander
is not the only crew we have to meet.
Ever since we have been here we have
been unfairly treated by the British
press." - >>
Umpire Frank Wlllan, after the
meeting of the stewards this evening.
said: "I could not do differently than
send Cornell along. I myself and Mr.
Goldle, my assistant, both saw that
the crews were ready. I gave the
word 'Go,' and both seemed to start.
Then came calls from the Leanders,
'No, we" are not "ready." Had I or-
dered the Cornell crew back, they
might say that, because they were
ahead at the start, the English umpire
recalled them to favor their i oppo
nents." '.=-..: A 7 . -'7r-7
This version of the occurrence can
be confirmed by the, correspondent of
the Associated Press, who witnessed
the race from the umpire's boat.
Sporting Life says: -7 *7-
."Frank Wlllan, acting umpire, : has
offered to give a prize to the value
of a hundred pounds for a Leander-
Cornell race on the day the regatta I
closes. It remains to be seen whether \
the offer will have any result. Of I
course many people will blame him |
(Willan) for not calling the rowers j
back, but it must be remembered that |
there is no appeal against the ur- |
pire's decision. It is not for us to'
criticise such an eminent authority.
It was an international contest, , and
a semblance of partiality 'towards an !
English crew would have opened the
floodgates of American wrath.
. "Far and away the best race of the
day was that of the Leander Rowing
club and the Argonauts, of Toronto.
Time and again it looked as if the
Canadians were hopelessly defeated,
but the manner in which they held on
suggested the tenacity of a terrier
and a rat. The final burst of speed
was worth traveling a hundred miles
to see. This magnificent struggle was;
an excellent make-weight for the Cor-
nell-Lea fizzle. .. Had it not.: been
for F. H. Thompson's mishap there is
no telling how his race with Hon. Ru-
pert Guinness, in the Diamond Sculls,
would have ended. The manner in
which he went after Guinness was a
caution, and his pluck gained many
rounds of applause." £
THE (-CO\'TEST.*> .
Leanders Furious When They Re-
alize Their Position.
At 2 o'clock the Cornell crew, in two
carriages, drove through the fields
to the starting point, the American
college ,boys.' running and yelling
after the ■ vehicles, uttering cries
which astonished the Britishers.
The strong wind continued from
Bucks shore, and all of the four
races up to that time had been won
by crews pulling on the Bucks' side
of the river. At 2:30 p. m. the Lean-
ders paddled down the course to the
starting point. They looked in splen-
did form, and were loudly cheered
"by the crowds on both banks of the
river. The United States ambassa-
dor, Hon. Thomas F. Bayard, and a'
representative of the Associated
Press were on board the umpire's
launch. The excitement was at
fever heat when the course was
cleared in preparation for this, the
most important event of the day. /? .
When the umpire put the crews in
position, Cornell was first in place,
and Leander slowly paddled to the
point assigned to that crew. Several
boats followed in the wake of the
I crews, and the umpire sharply or-
J dered them away, as they seemed
i to seriously interfere with the Lean
i ders.
The umpire then said: "Hurry up,
When the Leander was in place the
umpire cried, "Are you ready?"
Cornell replied, "Yes.". . -
A member of the Leander. t crew
! said first. "Yes," and then the Lean
, der stroke, C. W. Kent, turned' and
! cried, "No, no."
The umpire an instant before had
j said, "Go." 77 7 !_.*."*-- ..-.-. ';
Leander at the word started/* half
i of the crew pulling for dear life, but
the others turned and shouted, "No;
not ready."- --.- 7*- 7" - AyA'jY
The umpire waved his hand to Cor-
nell, which crew had taken' the water
promptly when the word was given,
j shot ahead and continued over the
I course. The umpire's boat at - first
i did not follow, and the Leander crew,
with the coxswain, F. Begg, in a ter
rible rage, pulled their boat toward
the umpire's" launch, and Begg said:
"I told you we were not ready." I
To this the upmire made no reply and
his launch steamed ahead after the
Cornell crew, which was now far down
.the stream. The Leanders, until the
umpire's launch passed away out _of
; speaking /distance, continued .to shout
wildly, "We are not ready"; why did
you serve us so?" But the umpire did
not look at them and increased the
speed of his 'launch. In the meantime
the Cornell; crew, pulling a steady.
even stroke, seemed satisfied that they
were; in the right in continuing.-- the
race. Passing the end , af j Regatta
Island F. D. Colson, the coxswain, half
turned and held up his hands towards
the umpire's launch. . But ' the umpire
waved them '. on, and _ Cols on, ".'with a
satisfied look, quickly resumed his- po
sition and gave a sharp order to the
crew, who had relaxed the tremendous
pace with which they had* started. -, On
reaching the half-mile post, where the.
crowds began. to thicken, the Cornell
boys were loudly cheered. A few feet
beyond this there were excited shouts
coming; from both banks of- the river,
I and the words. "Where is Leander- !
| and the words, "Where is Leander- !
I Why don't they come? Are they lost?"..!
I could be heard even* few feet.
_ "An English crew would never have
I kept on," said an excited Britisher.
| ' On the grand stand among the Amer
icans the feeling was one of great dis
■ appointment. An American-- said:
. "Well, I would rather they had "licked
us than have a thing like this."-
Every foot of the way to the finish
I line the excitement increased, until at
I the finish it was something tremen-
I dous. The umpire's launch -steamed
up to the finish amid much excitement
I and loud exclamations from all sides.
j The umpire was not in any way dis-
I mayed and said : . "The race is Cor
i nell's. Leander did not start."
I The Cornell crew got. a very good
reception as they passed the winning
post, but there was some boasting
mingled with the English cheers and
Cornell yells. The Cornell I crew then
'-proceeded to their boat house. The'
men. got out of their boat without dls^-*"

I thusiasm, with the solitary exception
j of little Colson.who remarked: "We're
winners, but there was no race. The
other fellows made only four strokes
and stopped. It was entirely their
fault, for the referee . said 'Go' and
you bet we chaps went. But when we
saw our . opponents were making no
effort we. slowed up, as there was no'
sense in tiring ourselves. 1 can't im
i agine what was the matter with the
other chaps, unless it.. was that they
I were cowards. But we were winners
I just the same." 7 777'
"I am sure we would have won,"
said Roe, "so I am sorry the Leanders
did not put themselves to the test.
i Anyway, it was no fault of ours."
'I suppose we should be enthusias
! tic," said Dyer, "but there is little
to base it on."

and we could only obey."

When, the first crews were started at
j noon- a very strong wind was blowing j
l from the Buckinghamshire shore, giv
i ing the crews pulling on that side of j
the river a great advantage. In fact
j it was predicted that every crew pull-
ing along the Bucks shore today would
win, unless it was decidedly inferior
to: its competitor.

■ —An Interview AVith His
CHICAGO, July 9.— The body of
CHICAGO, July 9.— The body of
the man who was shot and killed
by Policeman Rosenthal in front of
the Auditorium last night has been
identified as that of Charles Gor-
man, who lived at the Hotel Somer-
set, ; Twelfth street and "Wabash
avenue. From the laundry mark on
his shirt he was supposed to be C.
E. Cole, but the linen was borrowed
before the shooting occurred, and
his real identity was established
by the man who had befriended him.
Monday afternoon Gorman received
a telegram from his wife in St.
Paul, saying that his baby daughter
had died the night beforehand urg-
ing him to come to her. H. made
every effort to secure money to take
him to -where his dead baby was,
and, after repeated failures, in a
moment of desperation he attempted
to rob Saloonkeeper McGloin that he
might have funds with which to go
to his wife. C. E. Cole, the man
who loaned Gorman the linen, and
who identified his body, is in charge
of the dining room of the Union
League club. He roomed at the ho- .
tel with Gorman, and knew him
well. -■- Last night about 6 o'clock
Gorman met Cole as the latter was
leaving the club house, anjd showed
him a telegram from his wife, Gen-
evieve Gorman, telling him of the
death of his child. He tried to sell
a large revolver to- Cole, but the lat
ter did not have the amount neces-
sary— slß. £ Then the two men tried
to pawn the weapon, but could get
no more than $6 on it. Gorman
then tried to trade it at the railroad
offices for a ticket to St. Paul, and,
: this effort being unsuccessful, the
two men went back to the hotel.
Gorman was very uneasy, and about
| 7 o'clock said he must renew his ef
j forts to get the money. He started
down town, and was not seen again
by Cole until his body was identi
fied. In Gorman's trunk were found
letters of recommendation from va
rious bar rooms where he had been
employed,, one of them being from
I the Grand Pacific hotel in Chicago.
i All the testimonials spoke of him as.
a man of integrity. Earlier in the
day the body was identified as that
of George E. Cole, of Denver, but
the papers establish his identity as
Gorman beyond a doubt. 7*. *'_7.
The Globe Man Tells Her of Her
Husband*. Death.
Last night it was telegraphed from
Chicago that the supposed Cole was :
Charles Gorman, and that his wife
lived at 64 East Seventh street, St. j
Paul. No. 64 is a business block be-
tween Cedar and Minnesota streets.
The front rooms on the second
story are occupied by Mrs. Mary E.
Mitchell, "business and trance me- 1
dium."- When aGI o b c reporter in-
quired last night for • Mrs. Charles
Gorman, Mrs. Mitchell introduced I
her daughter, a slender, girlish young
woman of '*, twenty-one, with pearly
teeth, loose '- black hair, _ and ; large,
dark eyes. She had been weeping,
presumably for her . husband; but at

well,. the young wife threw up both
hands and 'almost . fainted- in her

hours before, and the father expected
here yesterday morning had neither
arrived nor explained his absence.
Upon a bed in the same room cooed
laughingly little Delia, the surviv
ing child of the stricken mother..
Without being fully informed of the
extent of her affliction, young Mrs.
Gorman told that she had married
her husband in St. Paul two years
ago. They immediately left the city,
and have since resided in New York,
Chicago, Boston and at various other
The husband had been a traveling
man previous to his marriage, being
employed, at one time, for Chapin &
Gore, the great liquor firm of Chicago.
Since his marriage, he had done no
regular work, but had received some
assistance from his brother, George
Gorman, who is a traveling agent for
some agricultural implement house of

had another ' brother, Harvey * Gorman,
who had once been a well known

described her husband lovingly, amidst
her sobs, as being always most devoted
to herself and the children. He was a
tall, handsome man with a dark brown
moustache and dark blue eyes. He had
not been a drinking man. He had
never been involved in any criminal
trouble. Four months ago she re
turned here to be with her mother.
A month later her little boy was born.
The father had been financially un
fortunate, and could not come to her
side. He had written frequently from
Chicago, and was expected here soon.
Last Sunday the baby was taken seri
ously ill. She at once telegraphed her
husband, care of the Great Northern
hotel, but received no reply. At 3
o'clock the -same day the child was
dead. Monday morning she received
a telegram, announcing that her mes
sage had just arrived- and inquiring
anxiously about "darling." Mrs. Gor

home immediately. He had been
anxiously looked for the whole day
yesterday, and the news of his des
perate death first broke the suspense.
Other membrs of the family explained
that Charles was known to gamble, but
that his unsuspecting wife had been
kept in ignorance of the truth. Mrs.
Gorman would scarcely have the
money to send for her husband's re

Secretary Hutchins, of the' Relief so

weeping young woman, who wanted
her fare paid to . Duluth, that she
might fly to the aid of her husband,
just run over by a locomotive at the
Zenith City. Neither the- St. Paul &
Duluth, the Omaha,- nor the Eastern
Minnesota could inform Mr. Hutchins
when such an accident had happened.
The woman's mother had the telegram
at South St. Paul. " The applicant

once and get the corroboratory mes

not returned.

Dramatic Contest Between" Strik-
ing Paver**.
There was a small and futile strike
yesterday noon among- the pavers
I in the employ of Hennessy & Cox, on
Sixth street, corner of Robert. Some
twenty white men, mostly Irish, had
been working at the corner during
the morning. They gathered at noon
in the alley alongside the Metropoli-
tan opera house to eat their dinners.
At 1 o'clock they refused to return
to work unless they received 25 cents
more than their regular wages of
$1.25 per day. The demand was re-
fused, and a gang of negroes em-
ployed by the same firm at grade
work further up the street was
called down to take the places of the
strikers. About this time several of
the Wilbur chorus girls passed by on
their way to rehearsal. In the eyes
of these bewitching ones, at whose
feet the extra quarter was no doubt
intended to be a sacrifice in the way
! of gallery tickets, the ardent Miles-
ians plucked up courage. Crouching
behind tool boxes and piles of stone,
quite in the attitude of comic opera
bandits, they sent forward one of
their number as a skirmisher. Ap
proaching with long dramatic strides
the smallest, if the most homely, of
the darkies gentleman named
Scipio Skitt— skirmisher, the
Robert Le Diable, so to speak, fold-
ed his fists suggestively. He also
whispered, in the key of B flat, a
threatening Italian remark about
"dimmednaygures.". Immediately
Scipio rose up and immediately
Robert went down. His fall was not
in accordance with operatic canons,
for he sang no dying defiance. He
laid down silently and at once.
Before, Scipio could gain control of
his large, brown right hand, four as-
sistant bandit-, also went over back-
wards in painful, undramatic silence.
! There was then a decided "alarum.
without." The whole chorus of the six-
teen remaining bandits broke forth in
violent song, keeping time with bricks,
rocks, and paving blocks. Each sepa-
rate note was struck with a new baton,
and several of Sciopio's Roman
bodyguard were confused with the
notes. But no shins or their
vital parts were injured. ■■■;/ Sci--*
pio . waited for his cue, then, rush-
ing forth in turn, he sang such a stir-
ring recititavo before the entrance to
the alley that the curtain fell to the
t splendid spectacle of the bandit band
in full retreat. Officer Carroll had ar-
rived in time for the final tableau, but
he failed to get a chance to beat a
single note. The brave followers of
Robert Le Diable will go to work again
in their old places this morning and at
the old rate. They agreed last night
that chorus girls are no prettier than
other pretty girls. S.
George Brown was yesterday ar-
rested while trying to dispose, on
Robert street, of some clothing taken
from the residence of W. G. Clark,
780 Ashland avenue. The arrest was
made by Officer Walsh.
