Boston, Mass., June is a movement on foot among some of tho older Harvard men in Now York to effect radical changes in the manage ment of Harvard rowing affairs. Wil- liam Blaikie, who rowed on the Har- vard 'varsity crew of and is one o: the most famous among the formei oarsmen of tho university, has issuei" a statement to Hanard men, criticis- ing in language the policy of Coach Storrow and Captain Higginsoi of the, 'varsity crew nud urging that General NY. A, Bancroft take charge ol the coaching for the remainder of tho Mr. jilaikie alleges that tho per- sonnel of the crew has been selected in violation ot universally accepted the- ories that material of the most unex- ceptional superiority to the prosont composition of the crew has been re- jected by tho roach and quotes (ho re- cords of thi!

General Hawroft as seen to-day in regard lo Mr. Hlaikie's proposition. He said "I have been out of rowing for HIM past years and have no de- .sire to become head coach, and even if tin1 position wero tendered to me I would not accept it.

Kails are selling close around per ton, while steel billets are Hearing The extraor- dinary demand for plates has caused every mill in the country to ho filled to overflowing with orders, and the third of the year is booked to the utmost capacity. A pipe manu- facturer says that scores of good con- tracts for merchants' pipe is going begging, and there will bo no possibil- ity ot tilling the orders this year. The situation is .such that the larger con- ceins are becoming anxious for next year's output, and are figuring on get- ting orders easily. They have been nipped short on purchases of pig-iron for tho last halt', and prices have either gone bevoud tho point where it is profitable to buy or material canuor, be had at all. The Carnegie Steel company is hurrying to got its big plate mill in operation withiu ajmouth. The Atlantic Tube company, which is building ii: Beaver Falls, will double its tube plant, as orders have been booked to keep the concern busy for more than a year with all tho ma- chines they can put to work. Spang, Chalfant Co. of this eity are also preparing to put in several furnaces for lap-welded pipe. STATK TKOH.KY COM It INK. oT Hriiltfeport Traction Co. It Is Idle Gossip. Bridgeport, Juno there is anything in the newspaper stories which are being so industriously cir- culated concerning a combination of all tho big electric street railway in- terests in tho state, President Andrew Radel of the Bridgeport Traction company knows nothing of it Mr. Racial is perhaps the heaviest individ- ual investor in street railway fran- chises in the state, and is interested in several roads. If any such movement wero contemplated he certainly would be it is hardly likely any combination would be entered into that did not iuclude the local line, with its many profitable branches, the Milford, NVestport and Shelton lines. Mr. Radel was questioned in relation to the report to-day and said that so far as he was concerned it was more talk. He had heard nothing officially of it, and when he talked with a gen- tleman who had been named as one of the promoters of the proposed trust, that gentleman said tho matter had its origin in the mind of some inventive newspaper genius. Work on New dip Defender. Bristol, H. I., June is be- intr pushed as rauidly as possible on the Columbia, but it is the opinion that she will not ho ready to leave the har- bor before Monday, at tho earliest and pel Imps not then. The painting of the Defender was completed last night and tho work of cleaning her nnderbody was nenrly finished. Her manganese does not. take as bright, a polish tm the Tobin bronze of the although just as smooth, and it is ex- pected that the Defendent will be readv to go out as soon as the Colum- bia. _____________ Eg 1 lift's Greiit Kiile. New York, June Hi. Egloff of the Nassau Wheelmen finished his task of riding 10 consecutive, centuries at i o'clock this morning. Egloff's time for the miles was 10S hours and 20 minutes. For four days and a half Egloff enjoyed only six hours' sleep. He broke all the century re- cords in this country from liOO to (iOO and also made new figures from TOO to miles. Elgoff did uot take solid food on his ride, but confined himself almost exclusively to straw- berry ice cream. REWARD FOR TUE ISOOKS. Mieritr FUzRny Oft'ers SlOOtoSeeure Thow Owned by the Murdered Postmaster. Bridgeport, Juiio Id. Sherif FitzRoy of Greenwich, has offered a erward of for the return of the books belonging to the late Shatlracl .T. Close, tho murdered Stanwich pos master. There may, or tnay not hineo import arjt clues iu the missing books, am the authorities are making every effori to secure them, 20 men have been al work in the woods and fields of Stan wich searching for them, for several days, but no trace of them has beei. discovered. It is proposed to look into the bot- tom of Putnam lake and iu order to do this satisfactorily, a peculiar, reflect- ing contrivance has been made. Ow- ing to the ripple on the surface of the water, it is impossible to see the bot- tom from the boat, but by means of a box with a looking glass placed in the proper positions, the bottom of the lake is reflected. The contrivance will be pnt in use to-dny. It. has been thought all along that the old postmaster had no money with him except that in the tin box, and a roll of bills in his inside vest pocket. It appears, however, that money to pay taxes was given to him tho day before he was murdered, and this money has not been found. An unfortunate circumstance con- nected with the case is that owing to the arrests Unit wero made, the peo- ple living in the vicinity are afraid to talk, for fear of being locked up. The authorities, however, are hard at work on it and will keep at it un- til (hi1 mastery is all cleared away. TWO IMiiKt Day Fart ot n Solomon and Charleston, W. Va.

His wife, 1'iota, swears shfi is the mother of Bessie, who wits born in that, she took the babe to Mrs. Walton, who wanted a child but had none; that Mr. Walton was abt-ent from home I'oi five noiilhs; that Mrs. Walton feigned ihildbirth and presented to her noigh- lor.s and her husband when he re- ttirued the baby was her own. This story is verified by Mrs. Wysong's mrse and several other reprutable peo- )le, while many circumstances are cited. Mrs. Walton, who is years of age, s equally positive in swearing that he chihi is hers. New York, June III. Old Mary Lar- ley, a piofessional beggar was woiked at the foot of down town ele- vated railroad station steps lor many years, is to-day a raving maniac in Beleviou hospital. She was found by a policeman at Broadway and Canal street, shouting hat she must havo a few pennies or she would starve.

To the mrprise of the police Flauady gave a ihont of terror, and suddenly sat up 311 the operating table. He had not jeen injured. Poisoned Man's Weird  ay these men.
