When the umpire put the crews In posi
tion Cornell was first In place , Leander
slowly paddled to the point assigned to that
Several boats followed In the wako ot the
crows and the umpire sharply ordered them
away as they seemed to seriously Interfere
with the Leander.
CORNELL STAHTRD ALONG.
The umplro then said : "Hurry up , Le
When the Lcnndcr crew was In place the
umplro cried : "Are you ready ? "
Cornell said , "Yes. "
A mombcr of the Leander cald first ,
yes , " nnd then the Leander stroke , C. W.
Kent , turned and cried "no , nol"
The umplro an Instant before had said
go. " Leander at the word started , halt of
tbo crew pulling for dear lifo and the others
turned nnd shouted , "no , not ready. "
The umpire waved his hand to Cornell ,
which crew had taken the water promptly
when the word was given , shot ahead and
continued over the course. The umpire's
boat at first did not follow and the Leander
crow with the coxswain , F. C. Bcgg , In a
terrible rage , pulled their boat toward the
umpire's launch and Begg said : "I told
you wo were not ready. "
To this the umpire made no reply and
his launch steamed ahead , after the Cornell
crow , which was now far down the course.
The Lcanders , until the umpire's launch
passed away out ot speaking distance , con
tinued to shout wildly : "We are not ready ,
Why did you serve us so ? " But the umpire
did not look at them nd Increased the speed
of his launch.
In the meantime the Cornell crew pulling c
steady , even stroke , scorned satisfied thai
they were In the right In continuing the race
Passing the end of Regatta Island P. D. Col.
son , the Cornell coxswain halt turned nml
held up his hand toward the umpire's launch
But the umpire waved them on and Colsor
with a satisfied look quickly resumed hli
position and gave a sharp order to the crew
which had relaxed the tremendous pace wlU
which they had started. Then , upon reach
Ing the halt-mile post , where the crowds
began to thicken , the Cornell boys wen
loudly cheered. A few feet beyond till :
there were excited shouts coming from botl
banks of the river nnd tno words , "When
Is Leander ? Why don't they come ? An
they lost ? " could be heard every few feet
"An Encllsh crew would never have kcp
on , " said an excited Britisher.
On the grandstand among the American !
he feeling was one of great disappointment
An American * ald : "Well. I would rathei
hey had licked us than have the thing llki
However , the universal opinion among thi
owing authorities here was that Cornell wa :
perfectly .Ight In rowing over the course
and that they could have done nothing elsi
n the face of the umpire's order.
Every Inch on the way to the finish tin
ixcltement Increased until at the finish thi
mspense was something tremendous. Tin
umplro Eteamcd up to the press and amlds
great excitement and loud exclamations fron
all sides , but he was not In any way dls
nayed , and said : "The race Is Cornell's
zander did not start. "
CHEERS FOR THE WINNERS.
The Cornell crew got a very good receptloi
as they passed the winning post , but then
vns some boo-lng mingled with the Englisl
heers and Cornell yells.
The Cornell crew approached their boa
louse , looking as If they had been defeated
ind their friends who were waiting for then
vere almost afraid lo ask for the result o
ho race. Finally a reporter put tbe questloi
o the crew , asking them If Cornell wai
Ictorlous and three or four Cornellers noddci
The men got out of their boat wlthou
displaying the least satisfaction or en
huslasm , with the solitary exception of llttl
3olson , who remarked : " "Wo are winners
but there was no race. The other fellow
nado only four strokes nnd stopped. It wa
entirely their fault , for the referee said 'go
and you bet wo went. But when we saw ou
opponents 'were making no efforts we slowei
ip. as there was no sense In tiring ourselve
out. I can't Imagine what was the matte
vlth the other chaps unless It was that Ihe ;
vere afraid of us. Bui we are Ihe winner
lust the same. "
' "I am sure we could hare won , " sail Ro ;
'so I am eorry the Leanders did not pu
ihemselves to the test. Anyway , It was n
'ault of ours. "
"I suppose wo should be enthusiastic , " sal
S. J. Dycn "but there Is little to base I
"It was a glorious sight , " Freeborn re
marked , "as we came down the course. Tha
was some compensation for the lack of ex
clteracnt. There would have been no chanc
.0 take side glances ot the scene It ther
lad been a race. "
Femiell remarked : "I am sorry now w
dU not slow up enough lo study the faces c
the pretty girls. "
Hall said : "The umpire fald 'Go , ' and w
could onl" obey. "
"There was no glory In It , " cxclalme
Spellman. "but It was-better than defeat. "

STATEMENT OP STEWARDS.
The board or committee of stewards th
evening Issued Uio following statement : "Tt
committee , while deeply regretting Ihe mo ;
unfortunate misunderstanding at the start i
the Cornell-Lsander heat , feel that they mui
abide by the laws of boat racing and canni
reverse the decision ot the umpire ar
The members of the Leander crew are a
wild against the umpire for hla decision I
favor of Cornell , nnd In their rage they EC
most unpleasant things against the Ithai
boys. C. W. Kent , stroke of the Leandi
crnw , said : "I have rowed In many race
and I have never mel with snch unsport
manlike conduct. We had not heard the un
plre say 'Go * when the mess was made. " .
Another member of the crew remarkei
"Wo do not want any more of such crev
as Cornell. " After hearing the decision i
the committee of stewards , Kent cried ou
"Well , I never waul any more to do wll
Americana or their crews. "
"They are not sportsmen , " laid still a :
other member of the Leander. "And Hi
Is why Yale and Harvard won'l row ther
They are not wanted In England anal
Tha only satisfaction la they will get a go <
licking tomorrow. "
A determined effort Is being made by tl
Britishers , led by the Leanders , toplaco tl
Cornell crew Ir. the wrong and put the who
responsibility for the outcome upon the
sboulderi. The Lcandcrs and their synip
thlzora Ignore the decision of their own ui
plrc , which Is upheld by this evening's dec
slon of the stewards. As a matter ot fac
the Cornell crew are not strictly within the
rights , but. In view of the umpire's order
they could nol well have done otherwise ,
would have been a pretty "quixotic" thli
had they disobeyed the umpire and returni
to the p < J"t , but meantime Leander won
have probably gone ou and won the race.
WAKNKD AGAINST LEANDERS.
It Is the lenders who are showing a me
unsportsmanlike spirit , and In every wi
trying to discredit the Americans.
Umplro Prank Wlllan , before the mentli
ut the stewards this evening , said :
ceuld cnt da differently than send Corr.i
along. I , myself , and Mr. Goldle. my asif :
rtnt , bath * nw that the crews were ready.
g vo the word 'Os , ' and -both teemed
start. Then CJmo calls from the Leandei
No , wr sre not ready. * Had I ordered t :
Cornell crew hick they might cay that b
cttno they w ro ahead at the btarl t
UnglUIt empire recalled them to favor UK
Thli version of the occurrence can be co
drilled by the correspondent of the Asaoi
ated press who witnessed the race from t
SPOUTING MPI3 COMMENTS.
Sporting Llfo sayst "Mr. Prank WIHa
( ictlrfr umpire , has offered to given prize
tu- > value of 100 for n Ltaniler-Conisll ra
on the day the rtjatta closes. It remal
to be srcn wbctktr .he oQtr will have ai
result. Of course , many people will blame
Wlllan for not calling the rowers back , but
It must be remembered that there Is no ap
peal against the umpire's decision. It Is not
for us to criticize such an eminent author-
Ity. It was an International contest and
any semblance of partiality .toward an Eng
lish crew would have opened the floodgates
ot American wrath. "

Mr. Charles Iloyt has been a force In th
world of farce for lo these many years am
amusement goers have laughed over hi
funny situations and his clearly drawn type
of character until a comedy ot this ultr ;
school has como to bo classed Hoytlan o
the negative of that coined adjective. Hu
lately there has been n noticeable lettlni
up In the humor of the the once brilllan
paragrapher of a Boston newspaper am
now assemblyman from a backwoods "dls
trlct" of Connecticut , and the public , sigh
Ing for the fteshpots , turn away to nowo
Ideals , longing still for the return of thel
old favorite who amused them so muc' '
with "A Texas Steer. " "A Midnight Doll ,
and "A Trip to Chinatown. "
The latsst comer with the Hoytlan brand
"A iilacU Sheep. " was made known U.s
night at Hoyd's to an audience that crowdei
the theater to the doors , but even with th
Inspiration of a big audience , favorably dla
posed from the very beginning , "A Blac :
Sheep" was not the pronounced success , froi :
an artistic standpoint , one had reason to e *
pcct from the author of so many cleve
satires on our frailties and our foibles. I
wai % ery reminiscent of a bachelor's laa
supper to his men friends previous to hi
marrlagp. While there were lots of hurra !
and noise , songs without number and dance :
still It left a saddening Impression , that. Ilk
the aforesaid supper , it was perfunctory an
done only to catch the passing fancy of th
Hut , then , moralizing over a Iloyt pro
ductlon , even If the fringe of naughtiness b
. suggested , would be like attempting an ar
alyals of argon , the new constituent of th
atmosphere , which the most learned of th
scientists know about only relatively and t
which the public cares little.
The new comer exploits Otis Harlan an
Incidentally a story , which U very much shoi
worn. Had the title beep "A Passing Mi
raeut. " "A Night with Harlan , " or som
other play of the "A" series , It would' ' hat
attracted quite as much attention and prove
Quito as diverting. But this Is not In lln
Mr. Harlan Is unique and very often ver
funny , but he Is too much In evidence. Tt
only long of the entertainment Is sung b
him , "The English on Broadway. " As f (
the rwt , they suggest stale beer. Next I

Old Bill Traffley brought his mob of proht-
Mtlonlsta over hero yesterday and went out
to the fair grounds and mopped up the ten
der green sward with Hutch's family.
From an Omaha standpoint It wasn't much
of a game. Pace made his usual easy mufl
In right , old reliable Pete Lehman was off ,
and the balance ot the team ran bases like
a lot of dummies. Hutch's absence from the
team was felt. Ho Injured one of his feet
In the game at Lincoln Monday and was com
pelled to lay off.
The playing of the DCS Molnes team was
In brilliant contrast with that of the
Omahogs. They fielded beautifully , ran bases
with Judgment and hit the ball. Their only
error was made early In the first Inning ,
After that their work was flawless. Th (
fielding of Mattlo McVlcker. Long Bll
Letcher and McICIbbcn was the kind you
would expect to see In the National league
Roach pitched a fine game , holding the locals
down to six hits , and one of these , the om
Inks Is accredited with , being a gift from
Umpire Burns. The ball was plainly foul b >

Yesterday afternoon Commissioner Utt o

letter concerning base ball :
"I am Instructed by our executive com
mlttee to call attention to the affairs of th
Omaha Base Ball club It seems that thi
enterprise , from some unexplalnable cause
Is not receiving the support from the publl
which it deserves ; that the attendance I
less at Omaha than at any city In th
"Tho Omaha club this season has been los
Ing jnonev , and unless better gate receipt
arc afforded. It must disband or be trans
ferred elsewhere. This would be nt thi
time on unfortunate commentary upon thi
city. A base ball club Is one of the feature
of all the cities of the country ; there Is i
general public demand for the sport.
"Tho Omaha Base Ball club Is. n clean
orderly organization and Is playing a god
game. It Is therefore worthy of cordial sup
port. The grounds are first-class and con
ventent ; no criticism of the club can justl
bo madn frDin n. base ball standpoint.
"The manaKfinpnt of the club has no
asked this i-uullc for subscriptions , while th
cltlxrny of ( thi" cities In the league hav
contributed liberally. The management no\
asks for the patronage that It has reason t
"Therefore you arc iirgpd to think well o
the club , and If you are disposed to patronIze
Izo the national game deal fairly In goln
to sco the home games at the old fal
grounds. " _

Glenn M. Hobbs was the first to begin. Th (
> e. t judges of tennis could not determine
