NEW YORK, May 30. Thousand! of spec
tator! witnessed the races of the Harlem
tBegatta association, held on the one-rtiile
speedway course, Harlem river, today. The
'water was fin (air condition ail day, al
though the IVInd was a little too strong for
the shells. 'The honors were evenly dl
. iTlded among the local and Philadelphia
Three crews contested In the senior
.algbts, Columbia, New York Athletic and
the Harlem club of New York. The New
'York Athletle club got the better of the
.tart, but had not gone an eighth before
4elng overhauled by Columbia and Harlem.
Then came one of the prettiest elght-oared
'races ever seen on the river between Co
lumbia and Harlem crews. It was a neck-and-neck
struggle to the end, the Harlcms
Iwlnnlng by four feet, breaking all records,
the time being 1:34.
In the final heat of the Junior sculls, Hunt
'bf the Metropolitan Rowing club kept the
ilead for a half, but wore himself out and
.finished third. A. Fraser of Columbia uni
versity got the lead over Hunt and won In
Easy for Hcholes. '
t The association single event proved ap
parently easy for Louis Scholes of Toronto,
(who bad no trouble to get a lead a few
tfeet after the start and was never headed.
In the senior single race, the star event
of the day, C. 8. Tltua of Union, N. Y., got
away before the others at the start. Ju
venal, the Pblladelpbian, fell back after the
quarter and was outclassed. Bond, another
Philadelphlan, was soon back with Juvenal.
At the half Tltua had a lead of a length,
but after the half seemed to be up to bla
limit, while Bcholes, the Canadian, had
plenty of grit left and gradually closed up.
At the three-quarters they were on even
terms and Scholea drew away and won by a
length and a half In 6:17. Budre, the Bo
hemian sculler, was a close third.
, All tho experts went wrong on the final
heat of the Junior double sculls. The
Etaten Island crew, !. T. Johnson and Har
old Scrymser, which was supposed to be
the poorest of tbs lot, won In 6:2T In a
heart-breaking finish. Vespers ot Philadel
phia were second.
;. In the Junior quadruple sculls the crews
were on even terms to the Inst, when the
Barge club's crew of Philadelphia gradu
ally drew away, winning by two lengths
from . the Nassau crew of New York In
Bohemians In Lead.
Another easy race was In the Junior four
oared gigs. The Bohemlsn crew of New
York took a comfortable lead and won by
four lengths. In 6:29. Clary ot the Nassau
,club and Butler of Harlem, were con
testants In the Intermediate single race.
Clary had more strength and seemed In bet
ter condition, and he won by a length In
6:52. Juvenal and Lock wood of the Vesper
"club, Philadelphia, bad a practical walkover
In the senior double race. No ,tlnie waa
' The nava! reserve race proved one of the
best contests ot the day. The two crews,
which were the New York naval reserve,
fought desperately, but could not get away
from ach other. Within an eighth of the
finish, Division No. 2 crew had enough
left in hem to spurt and won by a small
margin in 6:32.
. The final beat of the Junior eight wai
its spectacular contest of the day's sport.
Four crews faced the starter Atlanta, New
York Athletic club and two crews from
Columbia university. The crews kept well
bunched for nearly half the distance, when
the New York Athletic club got a alight
lead, with the .Atlantas second and the
Columbia crews third and fourth, respect
ively. The positions remained unchanged
until the seven-eighths. New Yorks then
Increased their lead slightly and won by
half a length In 4:32H. The Atlantas were
beaten out a trifle by the Columbia Fresh
men. The race was such a fierce contest

HARVARD TAKES THE LEAD
twoalldea nineteen Men for Inter-
collegiate Meet with Yale
' Only One Behind.
NEW YORK, May SO.-The showing made
by the athletlo collegians In the prelimin
ary heata and trials in the track and field
conteata which took place at Berkley oval
today gives promise that aome unuaual'y
clever performancea will be seen when the
semi-final and finals of the Intercollegiate
championships are being decided tomorrow.
Aa waa expected, Harvard and Yale out
ranked all the other colleges In the number
of men who qualified from each.- Harvard
baa nineteen and Yale eighteen on the list
of eligible for the finals tomorrow, and
the next In point of numbers la Princeton,
with eight. California has seven, Penn
sylvania five, Cornell four. Amherst three,
Columbia. Georgetown and Syracuse two
each, and Rutgers and Williams one each.
Harvard la the favorite In what little
betting haa been done ao far, but If the
froteat made bv Yale nsralnat RKW th.
Harvard sprinter, who won his trials In the
sprints today rather easily, should be sus
tained. Tale would gain a decided advant
age, aa Harvard would loaa either eight
or ten points.
Arthur DufTey of Georgetown and Bcheck
won their Individual heata in the loo-yard
dash In even time. Hut If tho track re
mains In good condition and there la an
abaence of wind, either or both will ennnl
and probably break the existing record of
0:00 4-6. In the high and low hurdle events
Willis of Harvard and Clano of Yale aeem
to b on even terms, and none of thoae who
contested in the :20-yard daah today can
hope to defeat Bcheck In the final for that
vent. Rust of Harvard should have no
difficulty In winning the auarter-mlla run
and Kane of Yale seems to have the half
mile honors at his disposal,
gome disappointment waa felt at the
Showing made by A. li. Plaw of California
In the weights events. He failed to qualify
In the shot put, his best effort being 40 feet
Inches. LeWltt of Princeton tied for
fourth place In the Hat of five who qualified
with a put of 41 feet tnchea. IeVltt dis
tinguished himself In the sixteen-pound
bammer throw by breaking all prsvloua
Intercollegiate records, as he threw ths
missile lo4 feet 10 Inches. Plaw was his
nearest opponent, with 144 feet 1 Inches.
The defeat of the California n. while not
generally unexpected, aurprlsed a good
many, aa no one thought that DeWItt would
beat him by a margin of over-twenty feet.
PENN BEATS NEW YORKERS

from CoIaaaBla. and Cor-
VHTLADELPHI A. Mar SO.-The Univer
sity of Pennaylvania won the Junior 'var
alty boat race from Columbia and Cornell
n the national oouree on the Hrhuylklll
river In Falrmount park this afternoon.
Columbia was two lengths behind Pennayl
vania at the finish and Cornell was five
lengths to the rear of Columbia.
The course waa one and a half miles
straight away and Pennsylvania's time waa
:4a. Considering the conditions the race
was a good one. A strong wind blew
directly up the course, which made the
i Large crowds lined both shores and there
raa much entnuhLsm over ine noma crew
tarrying Its colors to victory. Pennsyl
vania had the weat or inalde position, with
Columbia next and Cornell on the outside,
.The start was a good one, Cornell catch
ing the water first. Columbia followed an
Instant later. TUe Ithaca-os took the lead
and held It for J yards, when Columbia
overhauled them and shot ahead.
Pennsylvania was slow In fretting Into lis
swltia. but when It Anally settled down the
red and blue shell moved swiftly and at
the quarter-mile mark forged to the front.
From there to the finish the Quakers were
never headed. Cornell was steadily rsil.114
behind. Half-way down the courne, In an
etTort to catch Columbia, It got Into rough
water and was out of the content. A quar
ter of a mile from the finish Columbia
made a grand spurt, but Pennsylvania
answered the call of Its coxswain to "bit

distance down to the finish.

Stock Yards Janlora Get Mne Bans
OS Slnggera to Beila
Three hundred people witnessed one of
the fasten! and mont Interesting games
seen In South Omaha this season between
the I'nlon Stockyards Juniors and the
South Side Rluggers. Reuben, for the Slug
gers, lost the game for his team In the
first Inning by giving five bases snd three
hits and allowing the stockyards bovs nine
runs. Lynch went In and proved a puxxler
for the stockysrds boys, who were only
able to make three hits off his delivery.
After the first inning the Sluggers played
a fast game. The stockyards kids were In
the game all the time and certainly de
serve credit for defeating one of the fast
est amateur teams In Omaha. Adams, for
the stockyards boys, pitched fine ball,
striking out ten men. The feature of the
game was the fielding by the yards boys.
A questionable decision In the ninth In
ning of the umpire drew the game to a
close, the Sluggers refusing to play longer.

OMAHA, May 30 To the Sporting Editor
of The Bee: With full expectation of a
victory and a square deal, the South Side
Sluggers went down to South Omaha to
day to play the lads who are advertising
the stock yards. Reuben, who started to
f'ltch for the Sluggers had an off day and
t was owing to his wlldness that the
Stock Yards Kids made all their runs.
After thla fatal Inning their attempts to
solve Lynch's curves were futile. The
Sluggers tried hard to overcome the big
lead of their opponents and for eight In
nings played a hard uphill game. In the
ninth they came In with the acore 9 to 8
In favor of the Kids. Casey waa the first
man up and sent one down to Adams,
twirler for the Kids, who. In his effort
to field the ball, threw wildly to first. Hre
Is where the trouble all began. The umpire
called the runner out, claiming he had
turned the wrong way. Mr. Browne, cap
tain of the Sluggers, a ball player and a
gentleman, protested, and when the umpire
refused to change his decision Captain
Browne called his men off the field.
In order that we may let the fans know
what sort of stuff the Sluggers are made
of, and to show that there are no hard
feelings, we again challenge the Stock
Yards Kids for another gume, to be played
for $25 a side, or more, the money to be put
up before the game Is called. J

CATTLE Receipts of cattle continued
Unlit h eii In today, which makes the de
crease as compared with the same days ot
last week and also ot last year, sua
greater. Reports from other points were
none too favorable this morning, and as
today was a legal holiday and besides that
the close of the week being at hand, buyers
did no take hold with much life and a
alow, weak market resulted.
The big end ot tne receipts mis morning
consisted of beef steers, and the quality
of the offerings was fully as good as usual.
The tendency, tnougn, was to pouna ine
market wherever possible, and as a general
thing prices were Just about a dime lower
than yesterday. Some sales were made
that were, perhaps not that much lower,
but on the other hand there were other
sales that were more than 10c lower. In
cluded In the receipts was one bunch of
cattle that was pronounced aa good as
anything that haa been here this year.
The cow maraet was a mo aiow, wiin tne
tendency of Drlces downward. Packers
seemed to be rather Indifferent buyers, but
still, as there were comparatively few cows
In the yards, the better grades did not
show so much change from yesterday. The
common, and especially the grassy cows,
were neglected and a little lowes than
There were few bulls, veal calves and
stags, and they sold without much change
In price where the quality was good.
StocKera ana ieeaers were aioo iturco, out
the demand was also limited, as specula
tors were not expecting many more buyers
on the market this week. There was. of
course, an outlet for good atuff, but com
mon kinds were rather hard to dispose
of. Representative sales:

pronounced about a steady price. Tho

SITUATION IS BRIGHTER
raTorable Tacton Outweigh Depressing
Element and Retail Trade Enlivens.
AGRICULTURAL SECTIONS PROSPEROUS
Large Yield of Wheat and Hlah rrlces
of Corn ilve Liberal F.arnlnas to
Farmers and Other Industries
Will Share Good Fortone.
NEW YORK, May SO. R. G. Pun l Co.'s
Weekly Review of Trade says:
Ease In the money market last week,
favorable crop prospects and confidence
abroad are the encouraging factors which
outweigh the disturbing elements of labor
conflicts and unseasonable weather for re
tall trade at many points.
Effects of the depressing Influences are
less keenly felt because they are believed
to be only temporary, and confidence Is ex
pressed thut with the resumption of work
and normal temperature there will be a
return to the liberal distribution ot mer
chandise. Despite the short-corn crop last year the
large yield of wheat and high prices for
both resulted In the greatest value for tho
two crops ever recorded, which means that
the agricultural sections ara prosperous
and other Industries .must share the good
fortune by Increased sales of products.
Collections are prompt as a rule, and pay
ments through the principal clearing
houses are well maintained. Notwith
standing diminished speculation there was
an Increase of 1.2 per cent at New York
compared with lost year's exchanges.
Returns aa to transportation show that
losses In grain movement are being more
than made up elsewhere, railway earnlnss
thus far reported for May showing a gain
of 6.5 per cent over last year and 18 nep
cent over 19n0.
Efforts to place contracts for inn.noo tons
of pig Iron, deliverable In the second quar
ter of 193, Indicate the confidence of the
lending consumer as to the future of this
Industry. There Is no cessation of activity
at the mills, and finished products nre for
wsrded to Importunate consumers as
rapidly as possible.
No Improvement Is reported at New Eng
land boot and shoe centers, where the
shops are still running onlv about half
time. There Is a little more activity In, the
Sradea that declined last week, but no In
Icatlon of recovery In prices, and other
varieties lenu nownward. Salesmen are
booking a smaller percentage of orders at
the south than Is usual at this season.
Local retail trade has been more active,
but Jobbing business continues slow. Re
cent advances In leather are maintained,
wdth belting butts freely purchnFed. Im
ported hldea are scarce and strong, but
domestic packed hldea are more quiet.
Stocks of textile fabrics are not accumu
mtlng. although the markets are extremely
quiet. Domestic Jobbing trade Is fairly
satisfactory, but exports of cotton good's
small. Print cloths are dull and unchanged,
with the situation unsettled as to new
prints for the fall. Clothing manufactur
ers are purchasing woolen goods In mod
erstlon only, and larger deliveries by the
leading; company Increases the disposition
Prospects are bright for a large yield of
cotton. Dispatches have been received
from correspondents of R. O. Dun A Co.
located In all parts of the, cotton belt, and
the returns are unanimously encouraging
Grain quotations made a decided advance
early In the week, which was not easily
explained except on the basis of light sup
plies In Bight. This element was not new.
however receipts having decreased very
materially for many weeks In comparison
with Inst year's estimate. Subsequently
the gain was lost in option trading al
though cash corn was flrmlv held.
Failures for the week numbered 194 In
the Cntted States, 148 last year, and 20 in
Canada, against 27 a year ago.
