Special Cablegram to The Globe. London, July 10. The Duke of York, has consented to deliver the prizes to the fortunate winners in the interna tional athletic contests here today. The contest is between Oxfoid, the leading Knglish university, and Vale, the lead ing American institution of learning. Each institution holds the collegiate ath letic record for its country and the con test between the two is awaited with much interest on both sides the water. The first medal for the hundred yard dash is of gold, the second silver. London, July 10. Bulletin Fry, of Oxford, won the hundred yard dash with Jordan, of Oxford second; time: ten seconds. The Vale men were plainly outclassed. Over 50.000 spectators saw the games between Oxford and Vale today It was one of the social and athletic events of season For the "Hundred," Messrs V. Jordan and C. B. Fry represented the Dark Blues, with F. Sanford and A. Pond (Vale) in opposition. Judging from re cords, all four are about 10 2-5 men, but much faster time was required. W. O Ilickok and A. Brown (Vale) opposed Messrs. Robertson and Mailings (Oxford) in the weight and hammer. Ilickok figured out with 42 feet 0 inches (weight) and 125 feet (hammer,) and his con frere is very near this. Jordan (Oxford) and Sanford (Vale) are pretty evenly matched in the quarter. The list of the English inter-univer sity records in the various events to be held are as follows : One hundred yard dash, 10 seconds, Darlington. 110 yard dash, 19 1-5 sec onds, Cambridge; one half mile run, 1 minute 51 2 5 seconde, Oxford; one mile run, 1 minutes 11' 4 5 seconds, Cam bridge; 120 yard hurdle, 10 seconds, Cam bridge, Dublin; high jump, 0 1-2 inches, Oxford; broad jump, 2 feet 0 1-2 inches, Oxford; Hi pound hammer, l:'S feet 3 iuches, Cambridge; 10 pound shot, 30 feet 1 inch Oxford. The American intercollegiate records in the same events are : One hundred yard dash, 10 seconds, Princeton, Harvard, Vale; 410 yard dash, 40 1 2 seconds, Amherst; half mile run, 1 minute 5? 1-5 seeoHds, Princeton; one mile run, 4 minutes 20 4 5 seconds; Wes leyan; 120 yard hurdle, 5 4 5 seconds, Yale; high jump. 0 feet 1 2 meh,IIarvard; broad jump, 22 feet 1114 inch, Colum bia; 10 pound hammer, 123 feet i inches, Yale; 10 pound shot, 42 feet, Vale. The mile looks a good thing for Ox ford, as W. II. (Jreenhow accomplished 4 minutes and 22 seconds, whereas J. E. Morgan, Yale, used up 4 minutes 31 2-5 seconds time, which Hildyard, Oxford's seoond string, should reach. Per contra, the half mile looks equally good for Yale, as W. S. Woodhull got home Jn the fine time of 1 minute 50 4-5 seconds. Green how took 2 minutes 2 seconds to com plete the distance at the University sports, and he would hardly ever beat level time, although a "flyer." The high jump should easily goto Oxford, as OXFORD Swanwick will "top" G feet if required, whereas 5 feet 10 1 2 inches h the Iest recorded for either Yale man. Most folk naturally jump to the con clusion that the long jump is, of all events, the greatest certainty for C. B. Fry, who holds the world's record with 23 feet G 1 2 inches. But L P. Sheldon (Yale) i3 credited with over 23 feet on several occasions, so that jumping extra ordinary should ensue and further breaking of records galore. President Oakley (Oxford) must greatly improve upon his 10 3 5 for the hurdles, for E II. Cady (Yale) not only equaled 10 seconds in the spring, but is credited with 15 4 5 seconds on no less than three occasions. These are the predictions of a promi nent English athlete.

Battle Cheek, Mich , July 10 An express train was wrecked on the Grand Trunk railroad here this morning. The wreck w as the work of miscreants.

Pullman Said to Hive Made Forty-Hre Thousand Dollars Out of the Water Rent Workers Must Live in Pullman Houses Those Who Went Hungry When Work ing Have Food Now. Did Pullman strikers have a grieyance ? The New York World sent Nellie Bly to the "model city" to get at the facts in the case. She says in her letter: "I visited the town intending in my article to denounce the riortous and blood-thirsty strikers. Before I had been half a day in Pullman was the most bitter striker in town. ' "Are the strikers getting enough to eatr' I asked. The man smiled. "We starved when we were working and we have food now ; that's the only difference. If Pullman had reduced the rents and given us a chance to buy food there would have been no kick." 'l'li give you a statement and sign it, too, if you want it," said a fine-looking man as he came forward. "I've been in Pullman thirteen years and know the story from the beginning. I am a tool maker or a steelmaker. I do the fine steel work in the cars. I used to live in another state, and the Pullman Company was looking for the best workmen they could hire. They came after me four times before I consented to give np my job and my pretty little home and move to Pullman. I had a wife and two chil dren, and as I say 1 moved here thirteen years ago. "When I came first I received $4 a day, and when I gave up my work I didn't strike, mind you, I was starved out on the wages and quit a month before the men went out I could only make $1 20 a day. "WTith the reduction of wages my living expenses went on all the same. They did not decrease. I moved into a four-room flat for which I paid $14 a month, with 71 cents for water tax. To give you some idea of the situation, say that I had been able to earn $2.75, a day, of course you understand I did not; I only got $1.29, I paid 50 cents a day for rent and water and that, if I had got $2 75, would have left 37.12 cents per capita for maintaining my family. But that average would have required that I work 3G5 days in the year. But you know we have Sundays and holidays and three weeks every summer, everything shuts down for repairs, so if I did not get $2 75 every working day it would only aver age 20 cents a day per capita to support and edncate my family, and with the poorest beefsteaks 10 cents per pound, you can understand how much I could do "I can say for myself and brother workmen," he added, "that if rents had been redaced with the pay there would have been no strike. Instead of that rents have been increased since I came to Pultman. A cottage of five rooms costs thin $14 71, and now we have to pay $14 71 for a four-room flat." "Another trouble," spoke up a man who hat': been listening, "was the tyranny of the bosses. We had too many, and they were incompetent. Theie was too much rtd tape about the whole concern. Mr. Pullman was an autocrat. He never came tc Pullman without from twelve to twenty people at his heels, and no work man dared speak to him. We had to give complaints to a boss and he sent it up the line, until at last it reached Mr. Pullman, who couldn't see how things could be helped anyway. To put it roughly, the head of the dog was too far from the tail." "I wish you would state my case," spoke another man. "It has been claimed by Mr. Pullman that his workman were not required to live in Pullman. I am what they ca!l an inside wood finisher. I used to make $0.25 a day, and I was cut to $1.40. Then I moved out of Pull man. I co. a five rooai cottage for $1, and then I was laid off. There was no work for me When I asked why, the !

We had seven cuts during the lime we were building them, and for the last built I received $ 10. or $20 an end. Just the same amount of labor and time was put on them, but that was the reduction, from $110 to $40 " "I w ish to tell you, Mis3 Bly, about tne gas," interjected another man. "Con trary to the city ordinance governing the price of gas, which places the limit at $125 per l,00o feet, Mr. Pullman charges his workmen $2 25, and we were notified that we could have gas at $1 75 per 1,000 feet if we rented from the com pany a gas stove at 50 cents per month. The gas stove is an ordinary one, with two lids, costing at most 75 cents for a stove, but we had to pay Mr Pullman continually 50 cents a month rent for one in order to have our gas at $1.75 per 1,000 feet instead of $2 25. "Don't forget the water tax," sug gested a newcomer. "Mr. Pullman paid 4 cents and at the very smallest figuring charged his people 14 cents. I estimated that over and above everything he cleared annually on the water alone $45,- 000" "That's no worse than mine," spoke another pressing forward "I work at general repairs, that is, repairing cars. I used to get for repairing one car $250, and I was cut to $G5 a car. Mr. Pull man has made the statement that three quarters of his work was contract. I can swear that when the biggest and heav lest cut was made it was all his own work. I can swear to that, and when the strike came on seven eighths of the work was his own." THE RULLETIN BOARD.
