Poughkeepsie, N. Y., June 26. —The
sJx rowing colonies of Cornell, Colum

this morning with their 120 oarsmen
keyed up to high tension for the day's
rowing contests on the Hudson.
There were no changes in the bet

the favorite in all three races, several
bets at even money being reported on

many bets of even money on Wash

wagers that Syracuse would not be
third or better in the varsity race.
The morning trains and excursion
steamers brought thousands of visitors
into the city. The river presented a
beautfl'ul marine picture, pleasure
craft of all types lining the east side
of the course near the finish. The
United States revenue cutter Mohawk
and the cutters Hudson and Manhat
tan were on the scene for police duty.
Among the early arrivals were the
Vanderbilt yacht Warrior and Vin-
I cent Astor's yach Noma.
The first race, between the junior
eights, was set for 4.15 o'clock; the
second race, for freshman eights, at
4.45, and the varsity race, at 6.15.
Local rlvermen stated that the two
first races would be rowed against the
last of the flood tide, giving the inside
crews, Cornell and Columbia, the ad
vantage. For the varsity race, a strong
ebb tide was indicated.
The officials were as follows: Ref
