Henley, July 4. The second day of
the Henley regatta was signalized by
another victory for the Americans,
tho oarsmen of tho University of
Pennsylvania defeating the Thames
Rowing club and thus winning their
second heat. Tho hcauders defeated
tho Relclan crow In tho trial heat to
day and therefore the Pennsylvanlas
will meet tho Lcanders In the final
heat for the grand challenge cup to
morrow. The conditions were even better than
yesterday. A bright, hot sun was
shining and there was no wind. There
was a decided Increase In the attend
ance and American Hags were very
liberally displayed. Soon after U
o'clock tho Lcanders, paddling to the
start for their race with the Belgians,
were loudly applauded along th
course, but their reception was quite
eclipsed by that given to tho Ameri
cans, as, a few minutes later, they
followed, The contrast In tho style of
the two crows, whom everybody ex
pected to see fight it out In the final
heat, was more marked than ever.
There was only five minutes difference
between the two races and no sooner
had Umpire William sent tho I.ean
ders off, than Umpire Putnam's launch
took Its place to start the Americans
and the Thames crew.
The former seemed even more con
fident than yesterday. There was a
capital start and the Pennsylvanlas
had three-fourths of a length lead be
fore the top of the Island was reached.
They rowed eleven strokes In the first
quarter, twenty-two in tho first half,
and forty-one during tho llrst minute.
The Americans went away steadily
and easily from that point and drop
ped their .stroke to thirty-eight. They
did half tho distance In 3.30. Their
opponents did the half In 3.1;!.
Opopsite the Leaudct enclosure the
Pennsylvanlas were three lengths
ahead, and although they again eased
considerably and the otliers spurted,
the Thames men were never able to
make up anything. Passing the grand
stand tho Americans could not re
sist a little spurt and they rowed past
with a dozen strokes at the rato of
forty-one to the minute.
The Americans had a very friendly
reception and a number of their coun
trymen succeeded In giving them a
very respectable college yell.

"I told them they muet not m.tkc that
spurt at the end, but I suppose they
were so excited and pleased that they
could not resist It."
The Lcander-Bclglan race was a hard
one, but not so severe as expected. Tho
I.eanders got away with surprising
rapidity, at the rato of forty-tin eo, and
secured a bare length's lend at the top
ot the Island. Tho Belgians soon struck
a rapid gait and began to come up, but
they could not catch the Leanders. Off
Fa winy Court, which tht-y did In 3,24,
the Lcanders were again clear. Off the
Grosvenor club the Belgians spurted
and nearly got up level. A splendid
race home followed, the Leanders win
ning by a bare length.
A Desperate Race,
Tho Lcanders finished very strong,
and. in the opinion of experts, they
could have made much better time. On
one point all were ngreed, and that
was that tomorrow's meeting between
the Leanders and tho Americans will
bo a desperate race. The Leanders
nave greatly improved. They now pull
well together, nnd today's race will do
them further good. The Pennsylvanl
nns have shown themselves to be In
the pink of condition. There was sonic
criticism yesterday because, after the
finish, the Americans rowed straight to
their bout-house and did not wait, as
Is customary, and rattle their oar In
the row-locks as a compliment to their
opponents. Tho Americans today mado
