THE BK FIGHT
Bulletins  of the  Mill  at
Reno, Nev., To-Day
Reno, July 4.���Jim Jeffries was up
early this morning and after a light
breakfast had a long conference with his
trainers. He then went to the arena
and inspected the ring. He raised an
objection to the thin canvass used as
flooring and it is probable that the one
in use at his training camp will be substituted.
Jeff spent yesterday playing cards
with a select number of friends.
Johnson also rose with the lark, but
not before the rest of Reno was fully
awake and roaming the streets. Most of
the eastern sports had forgotten to put
their watches back and in consequence
were up at daybreak.
Johnson had a conference with Delaney
this morning, and this confirms the
impression that he hopes to spring some
new plan in his battle with the white man.
"There will be no color line tonight,
no matter which wins." remarked the
colored boxer to the crowd of correspondents.
As early as ten b'clock this morning
the crowd began to pour into the arena,
and a short time after there was a large
crowd at all of the entrances.
The betting at ten thirty was in
favor of Jeffries by ten to six and a
half.
At 1 o'clock the arena was nearly
filled. The heat was intense as the
mid-day sun poured it's rays into the
crater-like structure. Odds still stand
at 10 to 6. Johnson and his attendants
started for the arena at 1 o'clock in an
automobile. Old fight attendants vowed
that never before has a prize-fight in
this country had as many women
spectators as this. In addition to the 75
or 100 in the long booth on the rim of the
crater, every section was dotted with
them from the cheapest seats in tiers
to those from $50 to $75 each.
Ringside betting favors Jeffries at
ten to six. Official pool seller Corbett
walked about the arena looking for
Johnson money.
Johnson arrived at the arena at 1:32
p.m.
Tex Rickard announced that the men
were fighting for a purse of $101,000,
sixty per-cent to the winner and forty
per-cent to the loser.
' Rickard stated that he had given a
bonus of $10,000 to each man. This
had already been rumored but not confirmed.
The money according to Rickard,
is all in the hands of the stake-holders.
Jack Johnson's wife came into the
arena  and  was  seated  near the ring.
Although the big men were scheduled
to enter the ring at 1:30, the preliminary
introductions of the pugilists customary
at these functions had not begun at
1:45  p.m.
The crowd however was patient and
good-natured.
Billy Jordan the veteran announcer
entered the ring at 1:45 p.m.
Jeffries and his attendants left for the
ring at 1:40, p.m. in an auto.
At 1:40 o'clock it seemed that every
seat in the strcture was occupied and
the six foot platform that extends
around the upper edge was black with
a human fringe of standers.
At 1:55, p.m. announcer Joran cleared
the ring of photographers and hangers-on |
Jeffries arrived at the arena at 2 o'clock. Billy Muldoon entered the ring
and after making a neat speech extolling the "one free state in the Union",
suggesed that the entire assembly stand
up and "With Heart and Soul" give
three cheers for Nevada and the Governor  of the state.
The response s these remarks was
spontaneous and the vast assemblage
rose to the man and aimed it's lungs
in three rousing salvos for the one free
state.
It is reported the new purse division
was brought about by Johnson's refusal
to enter the ring until it was agreed.
Responding to repeated calls, Fitsim-
mons, the ex-world's champion, jumped into the ring. Bob made a neat
speech.
Tom Sharkey, also responding to the
importunities of the sports, stalked
into the ring and was next to be introduced.
At 2:03 Tex Rickard was introduced
as "the gamest sport of the world,"
by Billy Jordan. Jordan reviewed Rick-
ard's connection with the prize-fight
game, and concluded : "I call for three
cheers for our Tex." They were given
with great vim.
John L. Sullivan then clambered
through the ropes and sat on the spectators' side.
Jordan referred to him as " the great
and only John L. Sullivan."
2.24 p. m.���Jeffries is taking a rub,
and is stripped for the ring in his dressing-room.
Tommy Burns, Stanley Ketchel and
McCarey had been introduced, but the
crowd shows censiderable impatience,
and that it is thoroughly tired of the
introductory game.
Sam Langford and crack middleweight was presented and announced
he would challenge Johnson for $10,000
win or lose.
Johnson entered the ring at 2:28 p.m.
Johnson entered from the north-east
corner. He was seconded by Bull Delany
Cotton,   Coc.  Furey,  and  Dave  Hills.
Jeffties entered the ring from the
south-east at 2:30 p.m.
Johnson gave Jeffries the south-east
corner.
"I don't care what corner you put me
in; it's all the same to me" said Jeffries
as he sat in his chair.
The entry of Jeffries into the arena
was the signal for a tremendous outburst of enthusiasm.
Jeff's seconds are Jim Corbett, Abe
Attell, Joe Choynski, Bob Armstrong,
Eugene Vancourt, Farmer Burns, Roger
Cornell and Sam Berger. Jeff's timekeeper is Bill Gallagher.
At 2:35 p.m. Johnson was presented J
as "the heavy-weight champion of the j
world.
Time called 8^2:44 p.m.
Johnson was clad in blue trunks with
the American flag entwined. A weak
reception was tendered the champion.
At 2:37 p.m. Jeffries seconds were
still winding the surgical bandages.
At 2:38 p.m. Jefffies stripped. He
wore purple trunks and the American
flag.
Johnson clapped and cherred Jeffries
with the rest of the crowd, as the big
white was introduced as "The Great
and only undefeated champion of the
world, J. J. Jeffries.
Jeff folded his arms behind himself
andgazed over the vast crowd,
THE FIGHT BY  ROUNDS.
Round 1���The men rushed to shake
hands. Johnson sailed in with great
fury. Jeff calmly chewed gum. After
a   long  opening  session   of   sparring,
HOW THE FIGHT
WAS REPORTED
UP-T-ODATE  METHODS OF THE
PRESS ASSOCIATION
Every Important Blow Struck Reported Fifteen Seconds Later to
Coast Newspapers���Most Instantaneous Action Ever Attemoted.
San Francisco, July 4.���How the news
of the great fight was sent will be of interest, as greater pains were taken to
give the result speedily than ever before,
and in fact it was as near being simultaneous as human ingenuity can at present
go. Eyery important blow struck was
reported in San Francisco within fifteen
seconds, and from there wired lo coast
cities.
Owing to the limitations of the carrying capacity of telegraph wires three relays or re-sendings were necessary to
reach all points. One of these was made
at San Francisco, where the stuff wa resent to coast papers; another at Denver,
from where all central and southern
points are served, and a third at New
York���from which eastern points were
taken care of. At each of these points
the receiving operator used a visible
typewriter and the sending operator,
seated beside him relayed the incoming
matter word for word as it was received. The task of giving to the country
this description of the fight, a story which
promised to be one of the most widely
read of the decade, was assigned to Max
Balthasar, known in thesporting world
as "The Ringsider," one of the foremost
boxing authorities in the country, and a
man whose opinions have for many
years been the last word in sporting
questions on the Pacific Coast, the home
of the fighting game.
Balthasar had been at the ringside
during practically every important bout
participated in by either Jeffries or
Johnson and had a personal and expert
knowledge of the science and style of
each man. For several weeks he had
been touch with both fighters, has
studied them at their work and during
their relaxations, and the full value
of his knowledge of the men and their
methods will be brought out in his description  and analysis of their battle.
Balthasar was assisted in his work
by Tip Wright, also a well known boxing authority.

STEEL WORK ON BRIDGE
Contractor Young Says Construction
Begins Next Monday.
The steel work for the Zanardi rail:
road bridge is all on the ground and this
morning Contractor Young sent up the
line a big outfit to handle the steel, ten
cars of material, derricks and so forth,
left at nine o'clock this morning, with a
number of men to make camps. Mr.
Young says he will have no difficulty
in getting all the hands he wants, as
he does not employ any laborers, all
being skilled workmen drawing down
50c per hour. Everything, will be ready
for the steel men to go to work next
Monday morning and the work will be
niBhed.

READY FOR TRACKS
Contractor Stewart Says he Never has
Enough    Laborers
Contractor J. W. Stewart, of Foley
Welch and Stewart, in in town for a
few days. They have a contract to
make railroad bed from Prince Rupert
.to Aldermere, a distance of two hundred
and forty-five miles. The first hundred
miles is graded and all ready for the
steel, and the balance of the work has
been well opened up and is proceeding
rapidly.
Mr. Stewart says the work done is up
to schedule time but greater headway
would have been made could they have
had more men. He said they certainly
had lots of difficulty in getting labor
although they were paying big fat wages
$2.50 and $3 per day. They were now
employing about two thousand five
hundred and had work for nearly double
that   number.

PRINCE RUPERT, B. C
A LITTLE TALK
Although our opening day had the double disadvantage of bad weather
and incomplete store arrangement, yet we had many visitors and those
who came to look remained to buy.
We are still working day and night to get everything classified and
systematically arranged ond we hope soon to give you and ourselves a
store that we'll both be proud of.
A store is like a new engine���both have to run awhile before they
find their true bearings and run smoothly. There are a good many
rough spots in the operation of our store and we won't be satisfied until
they're all worked down and running, as the engineer would say, clean
and sweet.
We want from our customers frank criticism of our store, its methods
and its prices. We welcome any criticism that iB JUST CRITICISM.
We also want from our customers co-operation in our efforts to build
up a growing and permanent business; a business founded on the principle of fair dealing and so deserving of public confidence.
When we err tell us. We are as anxious to have the mistake corrected
as you are, for we know that a satisfied customer is our best asset.
While DRY-GOODS is our main line, there are many other items in
our stock that are used in the home every day which we purpose featuring pretty strongly as soon as we can get the stock classified. These
articles we intend keeping in what we are going to call our "Bargain
Balcony" and the merchandise found there will always contain values a
little above the ordinary.
It is a business principle with ub never to advertise anything that is
not the strict truth and you can implicitly rely on it that if you Bee anything claimed for our goods or our prices in our advertisements that it
IS AS STATED.
We have come here to stay. We have unbounded faith in Prince
Rupert and its great future and we are ambitious to become part of that
future by founding a business that will grow as the City grows. We want
your help and we aim to deserve it.
Yours for success,

SPOKANE MEN
INTERESTED HERE
C. C. REID WILL LOCATE HERE IN
THE NEAR FUTURE.
He was Here Last Week Sizing the
Town up���Says that Many Spokane
People are Coming with Their
Money Bags.
Prince Rupert is being well advertised
in many of the cities in the States,
among them is Spokane, Wash. There
are a number of former citizens of that
place here now and the near future will
see many more come in. C. C. Reid of
that city was in town a few days last
week making inquiries and investigating
for himself. He was taken in tow by
Leonard and Reid, real estate men on
Third avenue, and they showed him the
city. This was Mr. Reid's first visit.
In speaking to the Optimist on Saturday
just before he left for the north where he
will spend a few days, he said he was not
only surprised, but amazed, at the
growth and development of the place.
He came up merely to look around.
His brother-in-law, Dr. Pettigrew, a
dentist of Spokane was here a year ago
and took back a number of photos. The
photos that Mr. Reid got this week will
be a great surprise to Dr. Pettigrew.
Both men intend to return to Prince
Rupert in the near future and go into
business here. Mr. Reid is at present
connected with railroad work, but he is
a hardware man, although he has not
decided what line of business he will go
into here. He told the Optimist that a
large number of Spokane people would
be in Prince Rupert before long. They
are alive to the possibilities here and they
are going to get in on the ground floor.
TWO BIG  OWNERS.
Representing   $300,000    Assessment
Signed Telephone Petition
The telephone petition got quite a
boost last week when Mayor Stork got
hold of C. D. Rand, and A. W. Aldeous
of the Vienna Syndicate and got both
of them to place their signatures on the
petition. These gentlemen represent an
assessment of $300,000. Looking after
these big property owners who occasionally come tot he city will make it much
easier to secure the required ten per
cent.
NEW ENGINEER COMING
Left Berlin on Saturday and Will
Arrive Here Next Monday
Duncan Ross has arrived on Thursday
from his contract work above Hazelton
He reports the grading is proceeding
favorably and many workmen going in.
He left the same evening for the South.
Mayor Stork has received a letter from
Col. Davis, of Berlin, the new city
engineer for Prince Rupert, stating that
he will leave Berlin on Saturday, July
2nd, and leave Vancouver on Saturday,
July 9th, arriving here on Monday,
July 11th.
The above was welcome news to the
aldermen as they have a big pile of
.work waiting for him to advise them on

explosion followed which wrecked several
buildings and every window within the
radius of a mile was smashed by the
concussion. Four persons were instantaneously killed and three others

ALLIANCE WITH GERMANY
Prince of Wales to Marry .the Kaiser's
Only   Daughter
Berlin, June 27.���There are interesting rumors in circulation in military and social quarters at Potsdam
to the effect that the Kaiser and the
Kaiserine are thinking of a matrimonial alliance between their only
daughter, Princess Victoria Louise of
Prussia, and the eldest son of the
King and Queen of England! who is
the Prince of Wales. The Princess,
who will be 18 next September, is
one year and three-quarters older
than the Prince of Wales, but that
would not be regarded as a handicap
from her parent's point of view. The
Kaiser's wife is several months older
than the Emperor, and their second
son, Prince Freiderich of Prussia, is
married to a Princess three years his
senior.

Clean up the Stewart Bunch.
When Manager Brin's Prince Rupert
baseball players struck Stewart on
Dominion Day they were received with
the assurance of a defeat by the miners
and a lot of money at odds to back up
the opinion. The game proved a surprise
and those who thought the muskeg
boys in gum boots couldn't play ball
lost their money.
The visitors were generously entertained by the Stewart team. A dance
for the visitors was given that evening.

SHIPMENT   OF   GOLD
Yellow    Metal    From    Northern
British Columbia and Yukon
Vancouver, June 28.���Yesterday a
shipment of gold dust arrived at the
Dominion Assay Office on Hastings
street, and today the employees there
were busy refining and testing it. This
shipment is valued at between $75,000
and $100,000, but it is considered quite
small in comparison with the amount
that is expected next month.
During July, when mining operations in the North get into full swing,
the assay office has its hands full, but
at present the season is only commencing. Gold dust comes from every
part of British Columbia and the Yukon.
It is refined and then valued, the depositor receiving a letter of credit
cheque, which is payable in any part
of the Dominion.
Grafter    Commits    Suicide
Ottawa, June 28.���A report reached
here this afternoon to the effect that
Frank Gouldthrite, the missing purchasing agent of the printing bureau, who is
wanted on a charge or fraud, committed
suicide by jumping into Lake Erie from
the deck of a steamer plying between
Cleveland and Detroit. The report was
later confirmed by Hon. Chas. Murphy,
Secretary of State.

THE BIG FIGHT
Continued from page 1
Johnson shot his left to the face, and
they clinched. Johnson pushed Jeffries
back. Johnson swung his left to jaw.
As Jeff roughed it at close quarters the
big black shot his left again to the face.
The men loeked arms and in the break
away Jeff, clouted his man twice with
two short-arm lefts to the face and the
crowd yelled.
"Why don't you laugh," shouted
Corbett at Johnson, and the latter
winked and smiled back at the former
champion.
The men continued in locked embrace
and as gong terminated the round Johnson playfully tapped Jeff on the shoulder and went to his corner smiling.
Jeffries told his seconds to let him
alone; he would fight his own battle.

WEATHER REPORTING STATION
| Established in Prince Rupert.
p. W. Dowling Agent.
|b. C. Webber outlines the working*
Of the Weather Bureau and the
Important Part it Play, in the
Commercial  World.
B C. Webber, assistant erector of
| the weather recording stations in Canada
ws in the city for a few days last week
land left on Saturday for Port Simpson
where he will look after the removal
0[ the instruments from that place to
Prince Rupert. For a number of years
the station has been at Port Simpson
but owing to the growing importance
ol this town and at the request of the
G. T. P. the Weather Bureau decided
to move here. F. W. Dowling, Dominion
Telegraph Agent, has been secured to
after the weather station and a
| belter man would be hard to find as he
has charge of the one in Atlin for four
fears.
Some of the smaller instruments have
already been placed at Mr.' Dowling's
residence on Musgrave Place and the
others Mr. Webber will bring down
from Simpson in a few days. It is proposed to erect the station on the bluff
in front of thc Catholic Church. This
is an ideal location. The instruments
will be about 30 feet above ground and
till be surrounded by a fence.
The instruments on the hill will be a
telegraph connection recording its findings
on an instrument in the house. This
instrument will be read twice a day at
5 o'clock and the reading transmitted by
telegraph to the headquarters in Toronto.
When the station is working the daily
readings will also be published in the
Optimist.
The Optimist met Mr. Webber on
Saturday and had a chat with him on
the system and the workings of the
weather bureau. For the information
of our readers we print below in part
what Mr. Webber told us.
The Bureau has telegraph weather
reporting stations about every 120 miles
throughout Canada and the United
States. The stations in the states all
report to Washington and those in
Canada report to Toronto. Then the
two countries exchange reports. To
the states the reports from our Northern
stations are the most valuable in forecasting the weather in their country
Md the reports from across the line
are very valuable to us.
As these reports are received at the
lei��d quarters they are reduced to sea
level. The temperature of the air at the
we of the rrading is taken. the rain
'a)l "' any) the kind of weather, the
Motion of the wind, the force of the
��">�� and the highest and lowest temperature during the preceding 24 hours.
ese ref,orts are taken twice a day at
| the st
"me time by all stations.  In Prince
Rupert the reading is at 5 o'clock a.m.
and p.m.
All messages are, of course, sent to
Toronto in code. There they are deciphered and put on the skeleton map
of North America. When these are
completed they have a complete report
of the existing climate conditioms of
the whole continent.
By means of isobaric lines, which
are drawn on the map for every tenth
of an inch of pressure, the authorities
can locate and trace the progress of the
stormy or fine weather.
All weather changes move from West
to East, being carried along by the drift
of the eddies of the atmosphere. It
would be physically impossible for the
storms to move from the east to the
west as that is against the rotation of
the earth. By these atmospheric conditions passing over the continent the
authorities are able to forecast the
weather in advance. For instance,
when they see a storm passing over
Prince Rupert from the Pacific it can
be followed right across the continent
and it generally passes through the
straits of Belle Isle. The usual course
of storms from the Pacific is across the
prairie provinces, the great lakes, down
the St. Lawrence to Newfoundland.
Another set of storms start from Mexico
and move north east across the Great
Lakes and over to Newfoundland. A
third set comes up from the Bermuda
Islands and sweeps across the Maritime
Provinces to Newfoundland. The latter
place usually receives the butt of every
storm and it is one of the stormiest
countries in the world.
Canadian    Stations.
The Canadian weather stations extend from Dawson City in the north,
south east to the Bermuda Island and
east to Prince Edward Island and Cape
Breton. Also to Newfoundland. The
stations on the Pacific Coast are at
Dawson City, Atlin, Prince Rupert,
Triangle Island, Victoria and Vancouver.
Import  of  Meteorology
Meteorology in all countries is advancing very rapidly and the per centage
of verification of weather forecasts for
forty-eight hours in advance, and also
for notification of approaching severe
storms, has now reached almost 90 per
cent. Weather bureaus are so important
to the general public in these enlightened
days that it would be a great hardship
to dispense with them.
Fishermen are warned of the approach
of gales. Canada alone has nearly 100
storm signal display stations on the
coasts and great lakes.
Shippers of perishable goods are
notified of severe weather changes,
Railways are warned of severe snow
storms and a complete record of
climatological conditions of all countries
is taken and published annually for the
use of farmers and others.
Prince Rupert is thus playing an
important part in this valuable and in-
dispensible  service.

it is a prospect. Every mine there is
still a prospect and until ore shipments
are made there can be only prospects.
Undoubtedly these prospects are exceptionally bright and some big mines
are likely to develope from them, but
every bit of ore does not mean a mine
and for every successful mine there will
be dozens of failures. Until Stewart
is actually producing the goods it is
decidedly disadvantageous to the future
prospects of this country to send out
fake reports. The country is worthy
of boosting as a prospect and too good
to have to suffer from the ill effect of
unwarranted znd dishonest statements.
Give Stewart a little time.

NEW PROVINCIAL
PRISON NEEDED
NORTHERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
IS DEVELOPING RAPIDLY.
Aid. Pattullo Moved Motion Authorizing the Mayor to Take the Matter
up at Once with the Idea of Having
it Built Here.
There is no reason who the Provincial
Government should not establish a
provincial jail in Prince Rupert. Aid.
Pattullo, at the council meeting on
Saturday night introduced a resolution
authorizing the mayor to take up the
matter with the provincial authorities
at as early a date as possible. Aid. Hilditch seconded the motion and it
carried.
Aid. Pattullo in his remarks on the
subject stated that Prince Rupert is
growing rapidly and there will be an increasing number of prisoners from here
for the provincial penitentiary. Only
last week the city had to pay 60 odd
dollars for transportation for prisoners
going to New Westminster. That is a
needless expense. This whole district
is filling very rapidly and a better place
for the provincial prison could not be
found than right here.
Mayor Stork agreed with the chairman of the Finance Committee. He
said he would take the matter up with
the government at once. He explained
that he interviewed Attorney General
Bowser when in Victoria on the question
of a site for a city hall and that gentleman promised to give him an early reply. The city will then get the city hall
and city police station under way.
That will help out a little. In the mean-,
time the city has taken over the Provincial police station here and boarding the
provincial prisoners at 50c a day. That
arrangement will only last until October.
He would get busy on the provincial
prison proposition at once.

Berlin  Paper  Regrets  Departure  of
The Engineer for the West.
One of the Berlin papers refers to
Col Davis, Prince Rupert's new city
engineer in its issue of June 7th as follows:
Col. W. M. Davis, who has been
the town engineer for the past ten
years, is likely to go to Prince Rupert
He has received an offer to accept the
position there of town engineer, at a.
salary of $5,000. He will accept it
and will leave as soon as he can arrange his work here to allow him to
get away. It is understood that his
family will not leave here until later
on, after Mr. Davis has secured a
suitable house in the new and rapidly
growing western town.
Col. Davis left early today for Niagara, with the Grey's Horse, of which
he is the commanding officer, but will
leave for the west as soon as possible
after his return.
Mr. Davis is one of the best known
engineers in Ontario. He has been
in great demand and did a lot of work
for other municipalities, and he superintended the installation of the sewage
disposal system here.
In his removal, the Canadian Club
loses one of itsmost enthusiastic members
Since its organization he has been a
hard worker and at present occupies
the president's chair. Mrs. Davis also
has been one of the most energetic
members of the Daughters of the Empire.
Their removal from Berlin will be
generally regretted.

COMPANY, LIMITED
HEAD OFFICE:
PRINCE RUPERT, B. C.
Salient Features of the Company
The Portland Consolidated Mining Co. Ltd., has been successfully launched with a strong organization, well selected mining properties and a
competent engineering service. The development of its properties will be pushed to the utmost in order to put the company on a dividend paying
basis at the earliest possible moment.
PORTLAND CONSOLIDATED is a sound business enterprise. Every precaution suggested by years of experience in the financing necessary
to and the actual development and successful operation of mining properties has been taken to safeguard the interest of investors.
Properties and Development
The property holdings are unusually large and valuable, consisting of more than 200 acres in the heart and centre of the richest discoveries in
the Portland Canal mining district. The surface showings are larger and better defined than in many of the best known properties operating in the
camp. While the PORTLAND CONSOLIDATED cannot be classed as a mine, the surface indications are almost conclusive evidence of a valuable
property. It is the purpose of the company to pursue vigorous development. There will be no long waits for results and the prospects point
strongly to a successful outcome. It is the intention of the management to apply for listing of the stock on the Vancouver Victoria and Winnipeg
exchanges, and we are in position to state that these applications will be made at the earliest possible moment consistent with the company's progress.
The Stock
The Portland Consolidated Mining Co. Ltd., has no treasury stock for sale at any price. The company has been definitely financed therefore
the only stock obtainable is that which may be purchased from those who for any reason whatever are obliged to realize It is as a permanent
investment that we accord PORTLAND CONSOLIDATED our strongest recommendations. The valuable property holdings supplemented by a
broad policy and able management assure success.   Whether you are interested in mining or not it will pay you to watch the progress of this company.
Full particulars of the company, its organization, properties and development, will be furnished upon application by person or letter.

THREE MILE RACE
WAS NOT RUN
ON   SATURDAY   AFTERNOON   AS
ORDERED BY THE JUDGES
Porter Refuses to Run Again and
Claims the Cup���It is up to the
Course Officials to Open the
Matter  or Leave it  to  the Judge
The entries in the three mile race
which was run on Dominion Day and
ordered to be run over again by the
Judges, did not show up on Saturday
afternoon. Porter, the winner on Friday,
says he will not run again. The judges
have given their decision and it is now
up to the officials of the course to say
whether the question shall be opened
up again and the runners given a hearing
When the runners were instructed by
Mayor Stork as to the course they were
to cover he did riot tell them where the
finishing line was. The start was made
in one place and the finish was intended
to be about fifty yards farther on. They
went over the course and Sherman
was leading when they came to the
starting place. He claims he.stopped
and Porter went ahead and was leading
when he reached the judges with Sherman in third place, he having run on
again at the urgings of the crowd.
Sherman at once protested to tlie
judges, basing his claims as winner
on the grounds that he was ahead at
the starting point and no instructions
had been given as to the finishing point.
Porter claimed he won and refused to
run again.
The judges consulted the starter and
then decided to have the race run over.
The matter stands that way unless the
course  officials  take  the  matter  up.
The play tonight is "The American
Girl" selected out of honor for the day.
The curtain rises at 8:15 so that the
performance may conclude in time for
the Eagle's ball.
Tea    Kettle    Inn.
The Tea Kettle Inn was opened on
Saturday afternoon and it will be a
rendezvous for ladies in particular. It
is located near the corner of Fulton and
Third avenue and tea and coffee will be
served from 11 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Special attention will be paid to private
bridge and tea parties.
First    Moonlight.
The first moonlight excursion of the
season will be run on Wednesday night
on the Steamer Inlander by one of the
girls classes in the Presbyterian Sunday
School. The proceeds will be devoted
to placing a window in the new church.
THE BRANDON'S PLAYERS
Select   " The   American   Girl"   for
Presentation This Evening.
"Polly Primrose" was warmly welcomed by a large audience on Saturday
night, and the play was much enjoyed.
It seems unbelievable that Miss Russell
could play any other role quite as well
as she does that of the teasing coquettte
but loyal hearted Southern girl.
