Herman O.lricus culled out "Are you
ready." nud at C:42 tho word was
given. Sixteen oars cleaved the water
and Hamrd'l light-freighted boat
showed a head first. The start
was the most remarkable pl?c9 of
rowing in the race. Not a
splash was perceptible on th"
side of the either boat. Harvard's
lead was aggravating short. Ten
seconds were all the time allowed th
crews. Then the shells slid at along side
by side. For o minutes a vocal volcauo
might have been witneHHo ! in red hot
eruption. Then the observation train
dodued behind a knot knol! on tbe

With ilsexit it took what little appear
ance of skill Harvard exhibited or team
rowing. At the first mile flag Yale's
lead had lengthened into the winning
one of fonr lengths.
When the boats had pssuod the mile
and a half post, -Yule was six lengths
to the good, and at the two-mile led
by ten lengthi, and Harvard's cox
swain was steering in the most erratic
manner. At the two and a half mite
flag there were twelve lengths of shin
ing water between tbe two shells, and
the Harvard men hud gone completely
to pieces.
Close by the 3-mile flag the shells
entered the floating alley of boats and
salute upon salute greeted every
foot of the passage. Yale had gained
another lenuth wheu the 3-mile pout
was left behind and settled down for it
(ure, if not brilliant finish.
Eight beads in tho Harvard boat
were bobbing about promiscuously.
The Yale crew ceased leading on the

A Comparison of Tlm Made by Tale
and Harvard
Cott racing had a small beginning In
America. In tho nlass of '14 of Yalo were
seven young athletes who thought they
saw glory on the water. Theso seven
young men organized the tirst college boat
club in America. This might have been
called a class rather thau a university
club. Without onything like a racing
si oil the young Elis rowod in pleasure
boats, and aroused the enthusiasm of
Harvard men so quickly that a boat club
waa organized at Cambridge in 184&, tho
vear following tho organiz ition of that at
Yale. The oarsmen of both colleges were
now thinking of a race,but under the thou
conditions such an event was difficult to
bring nbout.
Pleasure boats wero used until 1852. In
that year th elgbt-oered barge was intro
duced and rowing, receiving a fresh stim
ulus thorcby, was soon firmly established.
For six yeare the bulge was used. Then
Iiarvurd took the lead with a racing shell
of white piun, 40 feet long and 28 inches
wide amidships. It was of six care, and
weighed io0 pounds. Compared with tho
present neat little craft it was as the bi
cycle of twenty years ago to the present
racing wheel.
In 18J8 tho first college regatta was or
ganized, but the accidental drowniug of
Ueorge E. Dunham, Yule's stroke oar, pre
vented the holding of tbe races. Browu
theu bad a crew aud was entered, A reg-
alar training system, was adopted by the
three crews the year followiug, and con
tests have b. eu held ever hlnce Cornell
uud Columbia coming to tho front, Prince
ton organized a crew aud was successful
iu bunting her rivals, but the lack of wator
und the expense of going daily to Trenton
or Philadelphia rendered crew training
next to impossible, und rowing was given
up with pangs of regret.
Iu 1876 Yale and Harvard signed their
first agreement for u series of eight
oared races on a four-mile course. Siuce
that year eightoou races have been rowed.
Oi these Yale has won eleven aud Har
vard seven. Harvard was more thau a
match for Yalo no til 1886. Hut Ynle has
one every race except two since und in

Fifteen Strong Arguments Against tbe In
come Tax.
Tho Senator from New York is Op
posed by Six Republicans in His
Hopeless Struggle Against One of
the Objectionable Features of the
Wilson Bill One Democrat Votes
with Him Populists Join the Dem
ocracy. Washington, D. C. June 28,
N spite of the oppressive and ener
vating host wnich prevailed in the
senate chamber all day, the ses
sion was continued for nine hours
and when adjournment cum at 7 p.
Ul, there Weru only two sections of tho
tariff bill undisposed of.
All the income tax sections which
had remained over from Wednesday
wore gone through with, and then nn
omnibus motion to strike them nil out
was made by Hill. This was the im
portant vote of th day aud the deci
sion was against the motion by a ma
jority of sixteen 23 to 40. Only two
Democratic senators. Hill, of New
Y'ork, aud Smith, of New Jersey, voted
for it, whilo three Populists and six
Republicans voted against it.
Wheu Air. Hill submitted his motion
to strike all sections relutiug to income
tat out of tbe bill, lie epitomized his
objections to the income tax, as fol
lows ;
First An income tax has no ie;;iilmafe
place in a tariff reform bill. It is unjust
to those who desiro to support a revisiun
of the tariff, but who cannot consistently
or conscientiously favor an income tax.
Second An income tax is neitner a Dem
ocratic nor a ltepublicun principle aud has
never been approved by ihe people at tho
polls, but is one of the doctrines of the
Populist party.
Third It iB an unnecessary tax. The
debate tins conclusively dmounti ated tho
tuct that the needs of the treasury will
not require tho proceeds of this tax.
Fourth It is a direct tax within the
truo intent and meaning of tho couitltu
tion, aud uot boiug laid in proportion to
population, it is unconstitutional aud
cauuot be enforced.
Fifth It is unequal, unjust and sec
tional iu its design.
Sixth It Is the reival of an odius war
tux in,a time of proforfnd pesce.
Seventh The exemption of nil incomes
not exceeding H" 1 ; is uu exemption un
precedented in the history of income tax
legislation here or ftuy where in tho world,
and stumps the measure ns tho most of
fensive species of class legislation.
Eighth--It is uujust and iudofeusible in
its discriminations, it unnecessarily and
Injuriously discriminates against corpor
ate investments by individuals especiuily
small investments.
Ninth It is retroactive in its operation.
Tenth It usurps those fields of revenue
Which properly belong to the states. Tar
iff taxation being exclusively under the
coustitutiou the province of tho federal
government it should mainly confine Itself
to that method of rulsiag itsneccssury rev
enue, without encroaching upon the
rights, prerogatiTos aud ruveuues ot the
Elovonth Its provisions are Inquisitor
ial uud offensive iu thoir character. It is
a system of taxation adapted to a monarch

Twelfth It violates the conf titution be
cause it usurps those revenues derived
from certain domestic corporations which
the states tliomselves have created and tho
revenues of which corporations tbe states
have set spurt for the use of their owu
state governments. Those revenues can
not constitutionally be destroyed, dimin
ished or interfered with by the goueral
Thirteenth Tho absorption of these log
itimute state revenues by the general gov
ernment as here proposed will necessarily
lead to the increased otreo taxation by the
states and ndd to the existing diroct bur
dens of the people.
Fourteenth The proposed tax is double
that recommended by Secretary Carlisle.
Fifteenth It will duplicate taxation,
create friction and promote conllict or
contention between tbe goneral govern
ment and the states; is contrary to the
ostnblishod policy of tho government, is a
step toward socialism and is unwise from
every point of political experience.
mandeuson's amendment.
Mr. Manderson, Nebraska, asked Mr.
Hill whether tbe paper which be had
read was an indicineut against the in
come tax features of tbe bill.
Mr. Hill It partakes of that nature.
Mr. Man ierson 1 want to add an
other count.
Mr. Hill There is ample opportunity
for a great many more, but in my de
sire to be brief I left out a large num
ber. Mr. Manderson The connt which I
would add is: "It creates a ciass to pay
u part of tbe expenses of the govern
uieut and is tbe first step townrd the
creation of a privileged few, consti
tuting a moneyed aristocrncy which,
contributing from their abundant rev
enues or incomes to the support of the
government, will rule it."
The question was then taken on Mr.
Hill's motion to strike ont all tho in
com" tax suctions of the bill, and tbe
motion was r jsctid yeas, 23; uays,
40. There were only two Democratic
senators, Hill, of New York, and Smith,
of New Jersey, voting in favor ot the
motion, but it was stated by Mr. Smith
that bis colleague, Mr. MoPherson,
would vote in the same way if be wits
present. Votes In t lie negative wer e
given by the three Popnllst senators,
Allen, Kyle and l'ett'or, by Mr. Irb,v,

senators Messrs Huusbrough, Mit
