Bob Alexander, the Hartford pace follower . and former King of-the Road,"" Is in ' .Hartford ; looking for an engageentrn --to drive a racing auto- ';f class and was seen a number of mes at the Velodrome track with the fast men. " ; During the past year Alexander took on flesh very rapidly -and -he' now weighs upwards; of 200 pounds. : He became so accustomed to riding fast when ' he was a professional cyclist that he missed the excitement of tast traveling when he retired, from the ranks of the cyclers, bo he secured a place as fireman on. a freight train in New Jersey. He was on a fast train and while riding, in the engine cab ne often fancied himself ..back on Uhe cin der track. Mr Alexander thinks that his experience in riding and handling motor machines would be of value in driving a racing auto and in tills kind of work he will not be handicapped by his excessive weight. Bobby Walthour may remain, abroad all the year. The star member of the Columbia team has sent-for his wife and children to join him in Farls Mi Walthour is disinclined to cross the water, but says she will do so unless her husband comes back to America soon.

MiKe Haley Welcomed by Friends Cripps Sound ly Thrashed by JacK Wil liams Notes and Jabs, J. M. Haley, drummer boy. boxer. ranchman, miner, gobe trotter and, philosopher, is back again in New I York, his black hair unmarred by the passing of year's, his eyes still full of the courage tnat ent him hurrying into the civil war when he was but 14 , years of age. - j In the cafe of the Hoffman houfi yesterday Mike Hajey he is known as Mike from Constantinople to New Or leans held .& little court of his own. j Pat Sheedy stopped and shook hands with him. He had beaten Sheedy at poker thirty years, ago, in Dead wood, out of enough money to buy a share in his first mine, "y Colonel George Crouch passed. "I saw that chap thrash Jack Demp sey in Denver twenty years ago," said he, "and ae looks younger to-day than he did then." ' , , Honest John Kelly stopped, his eyes popping, and nnally ejaculated: "I thought you had been killed In South Africa?' ' - "The doctors wouldn't stand for it," answered Haley, .Mike started up Broadway. , His sand had been wrung helpless by the time he got to the Gilsey. In the cafe there he met Al Smlta and a big down town dry goods mer chant. ' , "The last time I saw you, Mr Ha ley," said the merchant, "was at a din ner in honor of General Grant in Wash ington." : "He had just held up single -handed a gang of mine salters in South Dako ta, and was the hero of the Black Hills the last time I laid eyes on him," observed the famons square gambler. "Funny thing . about that," said Mike. "One of the chaps that just es caped hanging In that mine-salting af fair I met last week in Washington coming out of the White House. "Heavens! said I, 'I thought you'd been strung up by the vigilantes?' " 'No, answered the man, T got out of that log jail and gave up salting. I'm marridd and-settled down, and. just been In seeing the president about a? little appointment for my sou. Keep it quiet, Mike, I've been square for twenty-five years.' " "Give you $1,000 for his name," , spoke up in jest i a Tammany leader who was present. "I wouldn't take fa million an swered Mike. "Hope he's a senator some day." And Mr Haley tugged away ? from the. crowd,, got aboard a car and went up to the Metropole, where he is stopping. -like Haley is a universal good fel low; he was bora in Brooklyn, ran away to the war, became a boxer, licked Jack Burke, the Ir'sh Lad; Mike Conley, the Ithaca Giant, and fought two draws and got one eight round decision over Jack Dempsey. He was one of the best 140 pound men that ever put on a gloTe twenty-five years ago. ' "Haley was a savage in the old ring days," said a sporting man yesterday, ''but he has one of the gentlest hearts that ever beat in a sportsman's br.ast." . JEFFRIES IS STOUT. Jim Jeffries is: getting so big that, if he Is not careful, he will outgrow any fighting weight. ; ' He' is now on h's way to Harbin Srrinp-s. Cal, where he will shape him self for his seance with Jack Monroe. This question of his heft Jeffries is loath to discuss. , 1 "I am not worrying about the weight question, or any othpr. for that mat ter.", said Jeffries. "It makes no dif ference to me how much I weigh. The only thing I trv to do is to get good. When I get to that stage it is a matter of .indifference whether I weigh 240 or 190." - - It is evident, however, that the b'g pugilist will have to take off at least a score of pounds before the Yosemite (lnH l-iAttle.

John li. Sullivan thinks he is en titled to $218 as a result of tho sale of the championship belt which was said? to be worth 10,000 at the time it was presented to him. The belt was recently sold by his "uncle," with whom he had left it for a loan of $1,800. ? When John L. heard that the belt had been sold he made inquiries and was informed by some one that It had realized $2,900. He decided that all the money above the principal and in terest, with the cost of the sale, should come his way. The ex-champion con sulted Lawyer Isaac Frauenthal, and the lawyer sent a communication to the pawnbroker, making a demand ior the surplus. The pawnbroker sent back word that Just $4 was coming to the "big fellow" and that he could have It any time h called. The lawyer consulted the client and It was decided to make VIM LING. 0'CONNELL BEAT JACK ROACH The New Havener Was Qv erweight and Forfeited $25-Gne Hour for First Fall and Next Easy.

CARTER HANDICAP, Beldame Hands Dotve, 1 NEW YORK, April JL6 The Cartet handicap was the attraction that drew between 15,000 and 20,000 persons to Aqueduct, when the Metropolitan rac ing season was opened In a fitting way. ftewtoa Bennin&tpn's filly Beldame carried off the handicap and In doing io practically led from start to finish. She waa never In difficulties, and O'Nell, who had the mount, bad only to shake- her up a bit at the end to win easily. Peter Paul, the public favorite, was seconddriving, and Wotan, who came out of the buoch in the stretch, was third. The time, 1:27, was within a Second of the record for the stake. The track was in first class condition, fcut the weather was cold. Of the twenty-two. carded to go in the handi cap five were scratched, leaving seven teen of the best to face the starter. S'here was a long delay at the post owing to Rosetint'o bad actions, but finally Starter Fitzgerald let them go to a poor break. O'Nell shot his monat, Beldame, to the front, opening up a gap of two lengths in the first quarter. Spring raced to the second place, with peter Paul third and the others trailing badly. Rounding the f af turn Bel dame was leading by daylight from Peter Paul, with Itosetmt in third place, Spring having dropped back beaten. ' . '" As the field swung into the stretch the crowd began to yell for the favor ite, Peter Paul, and, although Hilde brand was riding bard with band and heel, he was not able to catch the fly ing leader. Abreast of the betting ring Wotan shot out of the buneh and made a bold bid, but the effort soon told, and he hung in the last few strides. Mean while O'Nell was urging on Beldame, and she responded gamely, going un der the wire a length and a half In front of Peter Paul, who beat Wotan three lengths for the place. Both horses were heavily played, Beldame . at sev ens and Peter Paul 7 to 2, and the ring suffered accordingly, Trotit Stream Are Fioen. GLENS FALLS, N. Y., April 16.

THEY KEEP THEIR NERVE, Engineers cn Fast Trains Have Too Much, to Do to Worry About Possible Accidents. "Speaking of railroad wrecks," said the commercial traveler in the smoking compartment of the Pullman car, ac cording to the Chicago Inter Ocean, "my observation leads me to believe they are due to the fact that the nerves of the en giners are brought to such a high ten sion after a number of bad accidents that they lose control of themselves." , "That's just where you are wrong," quietly said a gray-haired man with a tanned, weather-beaten face, who sat near the window smoking a cigar, T think you will all credit me with know ing what I am talking about, as I have been a railroad engineer for the last 30 years, have run all kinds of engines, from a' mine dummy to a hundred-ton paseenger engine with a seven-foot wheel, and have railroaded on all the principal lines in the United States. "The majority of people seem to have the idea that the engineer of a fast train is always in fear of run-ins and colli sions, and that he is under such a nerv ous strain that he sometimes has to be lifted from the cab when he reaches the end of his run. That isn't so. An en gineer has too many duties, ' such aa watching his signals,, keeping water In his boiler, and seeing that be l&on sched ule time, to have much time to worry himself about accidents that are likely to happen. As Jong as he pays the prop er attention to his own train he knows that is all he can do, and that if anything goes wrong it is beyond -hi control. So he doesn't take up any of his time worry r ing. Accidents will happen,' no matter how much care is taken to prevent them, and sometimes there can't be found any reason for them; but you may be sure that they are never caused through the engineer losing his nerve." THE PAY SINGERS RECEIVE. It Is Thought That Hot a Dozen American Vocalists Clear Ten Thousand a Year. J After years of hard, uphill struggle and study a singer may be recognized as successful, says Leslie's Monthly. What is her reward? .The .season , is short, a few weeks of fall festivities, a week or two of Christmas concerts, and a few weeks of spring fs&tlvities, with a sprinkling of individual concerts be tween times, make up the list of her opportunities. When she obtains an engagement there is much more prep aration necessary than rubbing up . her knowledge of the work to be given, and singing the rehearsal often pub lic with" the local chorus the day or the afternoon before the performance. She must watch for draughts; a cold would disable her completely. She must be constantly careful of the at mosphere she breathes. She receives lnv compensation two, three or four hundred dollars, from which must be deducted many expenses. There are probably not a dozen Ameri can concert and oratorio singers who clear $10,000 a year from singing, In cluding $1,000 or $1,500 they receive from church or Synagogues, And the study and work they did at the start was only a beginning of study and work they must do all their life. Of the rest, a few make a considerable amount of money by being invited to wealthy private houses, singing for people there and receiving checks the next day for their Kindness, The vast majority of the remainder exist on twenty-five and fifty ' dollar concert work, or take to teaching, or drift Into comic opera, or in the end weary of it all and do something else.

KING DENTAL CO.!lt-" THE LIFE OF A BATTLESHIP. First-Class Fighting Vessel Costs Sight Million Dollars and i Xasts But 12 Years. A modern navy is not on of the cheap luxuries, says the Pathfinder. Senator Hale stated that the navy de partment proposed to retire the battle ships Oregon, Indiana, Massachusetts and Texas to the purposes of coast de fense in 1908. The Oregon was launched only in 1896. so that her life as a first-class fighting ship will ' be only twelve years. Tho Oregon; cost $5,000,000, but . the battleships now are costing J8.000.000. Any warship now becomes virtually obsolete in a dozen or fifteen years, and we must figure on practically re placing our navy at the end of that period. A merchant steamer lasts on the average 20 years. It Is well known that the big naval guns are also very short-lived. The biggest ones are worthless after a hundred shots. The metal becomes crystallized by the sfcoelt of te ex plosion and loses its tensile strength, thus making it dangerous. Hence a bombardment costs not only in the ammunition used, but even more In the wear and tear on the gun, itself. Naval authorities speak of these things lightly, for it is not their own money that is being spent, but as a matter of fact a warship is the most ix Qenalva tbJjaar 'mplTmbl to run.
