Thrills Enough, However.
ItYE, N. Y., June 2. Heeled under a
stiff northwest breeze until even her
bronzed underbody glistened in the
sunlight like burnished gold, Alexan
der S. Cochran's Vanltie flashed across
the line a winner over the Resolute by
16 minutes, 48 seconds, in the first
race for the America's cup defense
candidates' yachts on Long Island
Although the official time allowance
given the Resolute by the Vanitie is
known only to the cup committee, it
Is estimated that the Resolute is In
receipt of approximately three minutes,
85 seconds' time allowance, so that the
approximate corrected time advantage
of the winner over the loser was close
to 13 minutes, 13 seconds.
' Yachting experts were not inclined
to concede a repetition of this victory
of the Gardner designed sloop over the
Herreshoff creation, for the 29-mile
race over a triangular course was
sailed under extremely fluky weather
conditions and the adherents of the
flag officer's yacht are confident that
tomorrow's race will be another story.
Duel Filled With Thrills.
The meeting of the Resolute and
Vanitie in the initial contest of the
year drew yachtsmen from all parts
of the eastern coast, and, although the
third candidate the Defiance was
unable to start as originally Intended,
the duel between the Herreshoff and
Gardner sloops wae one that thrilled.
Thousands followed the yachts twice
round the triangle in steam yachts,
ailing craft and excursion steamers.
The spectators saw two of the three
aingle stickers, built for the purpose of
defending the America's cup against
Sir Thomas Lipton's challenger Sham
rockTlV, tried under fluctuating weather
conditions. The breeze ran the gamut
from a puffy little air to a stiff blow
that heeled the 75-footers over until
their keels were visible. And when the
fleet of private yachts and excursion
boats headed away from the finish line,
it was the consensus of opinion that
two worthy defending candidates had
demonstrated their prowess, with still
another yet to show Its speed. Conse
quently the reputed wizard-like skill
of Designer Nicholson, of the Sham
rock, did not appear so fearsome as
Calculations Are Upset.
The course as laid out was a tri
angular one that called for a close
fetch, a beat and a broad reach, but
the fluky weather conditions upset
these calculations to some extent.
At the wheel of the Resolute was
Charles Francis Adams II, while aboard
were Robert W. Emmons H, the man
ager of the syndicate; George E.
Nichols, John Parkinson, George A.
Cormack, Nat Herreshoff and Asa W.
Hathaway, head sailmakers for the
: At the wheel of the Vanitie stood
Captain William S. Dennis, with Fred
erick M. Hoit and Frederick M. Davies
as his board of strategy. With a six
mile wind coming out of the northwest.
Captain Adams held a slight advan
tage on the final move and crossed the
starting line at 12:46:12, while the
Vanitie followed 34 seconds later.
Shortly after the cup defense candi
dates got away the wind freshened to
a ten-mile breeze.
As they luffed around the first mark
the Herreshoff model was leading by
about a minute and a half. The sec
ond leg resolved itself Into a series
Wind Gradually Drops.
The yachts found the wind stronger
and both sloops replaced Jib topsails
with reaching Jibs. Under the new
sail- the Vanitie picked up and in a
luffing match gained rapidly on the
Resolute. The Vanitie followed this
success by breaking out a big balloon
jib topsail and drew up on the Reso
lute until less than 100 yards sepa
rated the sloops.
As they swung around the buoy for
the second round of the course the
wind was gradually dropping and soon
the yachts with sails barely filled were
-irtually becalmed. In the faint breeze
the Vanitie appeared to slip through
the water like a mermaid and Boon she
had passed her rival.
The Vanitie turned the buoy fully a
mile In the lead and with club topsail.
Jib and Jib topsail flat as boards, fairly
skimmed over the water, her lee rail
almost awash and the bronze hull
flashing like gold in the final reach for
the finish line.
' So fast did the Gardner craft sail
that she was more than three miles
ahead of the Resolute when she finally
turned the second mark.

ILLINOIS rS PICKED TO WIN
Coach Stags, of Chicago, Surveys
"Big Nine" Athletes.
CHICAGO, June 2. The University of
Illinois track team is looked upon by
Coach Stagg, of Chicago, as the most
likely winner in the "big nine" con
ference meet here Saturday. The Chi
cago coach spent today watching the
practice of , the athletes who have
reached here, Leland Stanford and the
universities of Colorado and California.
Illinois, it was' said, would be a suffi
ciently strong contender in nearly
every event to insure its piling up a
good number of points.
The University of California will
suffer a severe loss in the disability of
its sprinter, Stanton, who injured his
ankle at Cambridge Saturday. He ap
peared on crutches today and will not
be able to compete.
Cline, of Colorado, ran a quarter In
49 seconds In practice today.

SEATTLE. June 2. The faculty of
the University of Washington, in a spe

the Washington eight-oared vareity
crew to leave Saturday for the Pough

son June 26.
In giving permission the faculty de
- , : r yxr?.
cided that after this trip no Washing
ton crew will be permitted to go East
until 1917, giving as a reason that the
expense of the trip across the con
tinent and the strain on the students
who campaign among the business men
of the city for funds are too great to
be borne annually.

"KNOCKING," TOO, ALLEGED
City Employes "Have Cars Repaired
Elsewhere, Is Cltarge Abolition
of Shop and Requisition Plan
Among Remedies Snggested.
Lack of co-operation between 'the
various city departments in handling
city automobiles and trucks may result
in the abolition of the city shop as a
financial failure. At a meeting of the
City Commission yesterday the proposi
tion was considered and an investiga
tion will be made, it was reported.
Lack of co-operation, violation of
the rules of the shop and "knocking"
are given by Purchasing Agent Wood
and Commissioner Bigelow, in charge
of the shop, as the reasons they say
it has failed to be the success it was
expected when established about nine
Although the municipal shop on the
East Side was designed to house and
repair all the city's machines and to
take care of the general repair work
of the city, it is said 60 per cent of
the automobile work is now sent to
' Expesscs Considered Too High.
The shop has maintained a large
working force and with only about 40
per cent of. the city's work to perform
is unable to keep the overhead ex
pense down to what is considered a
reasonable figure. It is said the over
head expense at present is about 30
per cent. This, added to the cost of
the repair of an automobile, is said to
make the cost of such repairs high.
Rent also is paid on the building.
Purchasing Agent Wood and Com
missioner Bigelow say there are two
ways of adjusting the proposition. One
is to abolish the shop altogether and
the other Is to require all machines
kept there and repaired there. They say
the latter way is the economical course
and should be followed, but cannot as
long as there is a lack of co-operation
between the departments.
It also is alleged many drivers of
city machines "knock" the shop and
thereby create a bad impression and
discourage the workmen. This should
be abolished also. Commissioner Bige
Requlnltfon Plan Sn'srseated,
Commissioner Brewster suggested at
yesterday's meeting that all city ma
chines be grouped an1 taken away from
all persons In the city service and let
out only on requisition. If a roan in
the engineering department needed a
machine for a certain length of time
he could make out a requisition, get
it signed by the proper official and
send for the car. It is Mr. Brewster's
plan to have drivers for the cars and
to discontinue the practice of allowing
employes to drive machines.
It is reported to be the Intention
either to abolish the shop or to re
establish it on a satisfactory basis
before the city's lease on the building
expires in August.

OLD DAYS CONJURED
Judge McGinn Pays 'Tribute to
HARVEY SCOTT IS LINKED
Concert by Parent-Teacher Associa
tion at Lincoln Hlgli School Is
Highly Enjoyed by Large and
Interesting reminiscences of former
days in this city were given by Judge
Henry E. McGinn at a concert held un
der the auspices of the Parent-Teacher
Association of Shattuck School last
night at Lincoln High School audito
rium. Judge McGinn was on the programme
to deliver an Informal address on the
topic, "A Tribute to Judge Shattuck,"
for whom Shattuck School is named
"1 remember attending the old Harrison-street
school, now the Shattuck
School, In the year 1866," said Judge
McGinn. "Judge Shattuck was pro
fessor of ancient languages in Pacific
University, Forest Grove, and one of
his pupils was Harvey "W. Scott. It was
Judge Shattuck who brought together
Henry L. Pittock and H. W. Scott.
"Judge Shattuck was then writing
editorials for The Oregonlan, but was
pressed for time. When he was busy
writing editorials his work on the ju
dicial bench suffered, and vice versa.
Harvcr Scotfa Career IIpstuh.
"He brought Mr. Scott, as "one of his
boys" at Pacific University, to Mr.
Pittock, and thus was begun that won
derful newspaper career of Harvey W.
Scott, a career in which he grew to be
one of the great newspaper writers of
the United States, equal to Greeley,
Bennett and one or two more. I am
asked to give a tribute to Judge Shat
tuck, my old teacher, and I will give
It in 'one verse which you will find In
the 16th chapter of St. Luke:
" He that is faithful In that which
Is least, is faithful also in much.1
"Take that home with you. Judge
Shattuck was liked by Republicans and
Democrats. He changed politics at
wilL Everybody liked him and he liked
everybody. But the best work Judge
Shattuck did was that of a teacher.
The best work done in the world is the
training of the young mind. In this
Judge Shattuck excelled."
Judge McGinn closed with an appeal
that self-reliance be taught the young.
The concert was one of high-class
excellence and was managed by Miss
Dagmar Inez Kelly. Mrs. Pauline Mil
ler Chapman showed a beautifully de
veloped soprano voice in Danza's "Girls
of Saville" and Cadman's "Land of
Sky Blue "Water." Mrs. Chapman is
an admirable singer and should sing
oftener at public concerts.
John Claire Montelta DrllichtM.
John Claire Monteith sang with ex
quisite sentiment "Ask Nothing More
of Me, Sweet" and for an encore a rol
licking rendition of "Mandalay." Paul
Wesslnger was not able to be present
on account of Illness.
Miss Nona Lawler sang with grace
and charming appeal Arditi's "Parla."
It Is some little time since Miss Dag
mar Inez Kelly sang in public and in
the interval she has vocally improved
to a surprising degree. She has a mezzo
soprano voice of marked beauty, one
of the best in Oregon. Stuart McGuire
sang with skill one of Homer's songs.
Others who took part in the rendition
of the fine programme were: Miss
Marie Chapman, Miss Josephine Wag
ner, Miss Ruth Bromberg, Webber's
Juvenile Orchestra and Alfred Keller.
- The audience was a large, enthusias
tic one. The committee was not able
last night to arrive at an estimate of
the proceeds for the school social fund.

the country, but that a return to nor
mal business conditions may not be
expected until the country knows what
sort of an anti-trust law will be passed
and until the railroads have been
granted the proposed 5 per cent in
crease in freight rates, is the opinion
of Frederick E. Farnsworth, general
secretary of the American Bankers'
Association, who registered at the Ben
son from New York Monday.
"Bankers have anticipated the pres
ent state of affairs," said Mr. Farns
worth. "and have settled down to a
safe and conservative operating basis.
They are doing all they can to Insure
the success of the new currency act.
The law aa passed Is about 75 per cent
"We should have had one central
bank, with 15 or 20 branches," con
tinued Mr. Farnsworth, "which would
allow a centralizing of reserve at
Washington, to be drawn upon in
times of stress for seasonal or sectional
needs. The main criticism of the new
law is that it has too many reserve
Mr. Farnsworth said, however, that
he did not want to be understood as
complaining, because the: bankers are
going to do all they can to help make
the system meet the needs of the coun
try and the Federal Reserve Board is
really a central bank, because of its
extensive administrative powers.
Mr. Farnsworth is on a tour of the
West, on which ha will attend seven
state bankers' conventions. "ith him
are Frank 13. Brundage, assistant man
ager of Knauth, Nachod & Kuhne. and
W. E. Purdy, assistant cashier of the
Chase National Bank. The party left
for Seattle Monday night.
