PHILADELPHIA, Aug 13—The first day’s racing of the cliver jubilee regatta of the N. A. A. o. was conducted on the HchuyklU river over the regular '‘national" course this afternoon, ovor IO,COO people witnessing the various contests. The New England oarsmen swept everything before them, only In enc instance did they fail to score first, and that was Joyce’s failure to capture a place In the first heat'of tho senior singles. The only final of the day was won In capital style by the almost Invincible Worcester high school crew, when they taught the others how Intermediate eights should row. conditions, were good for the racing—no boats obstructed tho course or washed the oarsmen. JOSEPH MctJUITtE Of the Bradford Boat Club. THE WEATHER. WASHINGTON. Aug 13—Forecast for Saturday: For New England and eastern New York, generally fair. warmer, southerly winds. Local forecast — For Boston and vicinity Saturday,fair, warmer, southwest winds. The temperature yesterday, as Indicated by the thermometer at Thompson's spa: 3 a rn 64®, <» a rn G2®, 9 a rn 71®, 12 in 78”, 3 p rn 78'. 6 p rn 75”, 8pm 70®, 12 midnight 67®; average temperature yesterday 71 3-21®. Wheelman Injured at Old Orchard. OLD ORCHARD, Aug 13—L. WL Hawkes and Alonzo Wood, wheelmen, were In collision while one was going up and the other was coming down a steep hill this afternoon. Hawkes wa* badly Injured about the head. They took sweet revenge for the guying the Philadelphia papers have given them, and the best of It all was they won punily on their merits without a suspicion of a fluke. Their victory was a popular one, and their friends take back to Worcester the past six months’ earnings of the other crews’ heelers. Lewis Scored First Win. Lewis of Worceeter scor'd tho first New England win In the intermediate race, and Greer, the East Boston sculler, kept up the good work by winning the second. Then Schultz of Providence won the third heat, which gave the Yankees three firsts in heats. Joe Whitehead scored first blood in the senior singles. Joe McGuire kept up the reputation of "Beantown" by capturing the third. Both Whitehead and, McGuire have earned a good name fo? themselves by their performances, but the crowd Is almost as much as ever In the dark as to which will win out in the final heat tomorrow'. Whitehead rowed the fastest heat of the day, and Scholtz was only half a second slower, and the same fraction of a second behind the record for Intermediates made by E. H. Ten Eyck last August. McGuire had a much easier time In his heat than Whitehead or Juvenal, yet his time was only two seconds slower th.Ai Whttelfipad’s and ll Vis seconds faster than the great Juvenal, who trimmed him at New York on May 30 last. James A. Ten Eyck, the father of the Henley winner told the writer ufter the regatta was over, that he liked Whitehead's rowing, and picked him to beat McGuire. The fact is that It is pnro guess work to lan'd a winner between Juvenal, McGuire and Whitehead, but I must confess a fancy for McGuire after today’s work. Alward, the Toronto man, who was groomed for this race at Hanlon’s stable. vias no match for Juvenal, and has much to learn before he can be classed as a finished sculler. McGuire and Juvenal are favorites In the betting, and Scholtz Is a prime favorite over Lewis. There were no hitches td mar the' pleasure* of the sport and everything went off very smoothly. The records were touched, but the Intermediate and senior singles records should go to morrow. The water, and In fact ail Wray and Rogers Matched. James Wray, the Australian, and R. D. Rogers, tho Saratoga professional, were matched today to row for from $500 to $1000 a side, und the writer Is holding $200 deposit money on the match, w'hlch is set for the 23d. Ed Durnan of Toronto will also be taken on by Wray’s backer, Mike Ahearn of Boston. The course was cleared for the regatta promptly on time, and the oarsmen lined up only a few minutes behind time. The weather was marvelously fair for outdoor sports, and all the quakers with a sporty turn of mind donned their best store clothe* and spent a most enjoyable afternoon. The course and surroundings are the best, all things considered, In the country, for In no city do the people take more Interest in the sport, and even the far-famed Charles river does not afford a better place to witness the races, especially the turning ones. The park driveways on both sides of the river were crowded with wheelmen, carriages and handsome mounts, and the cliffs and bridge that spans the Schuylkill river, as well as the stone wall along the driveway, furnished natural grand stands. Launches, rowboats and saucy-looking club botas adorned the west ghore near the finish, very much resembling a Henley affair. Lewis Wins First Heat. The first race of the day was the first trial heat in the Intermediate singles, which brought out B. G. Wilson, New York A. C.; John McCollum Binder, Malta B. C., Philadelphia; Charles H. Lewis, Wachusett B. C., Worcester, and W. 8. Rodenbough, Malta B, C., Philadelphia. The wind was blowing slightly up the river, in the pien’s favor over the first half of the course, and they had it in their favor on the home journey. Wilson was the first to get away, Lewis being rather slow’ and the others no better. Lewis was soon on even terms with Wilson, but being forced to cut over into the next lane by the starter he lost considerable. Rodenbough steered a wild course from the start, and came within a few feet of fouling Lewis. The Worcester sculler out away for half a dozen strokes and got far out of the Malta sculler’s way. JOSEPH J. WHITEHEAD. American Cluunplon, Representing the West End boat Club. It was an easy task for Lewis to row Wilson, the N. Y. A. C. man, down, and once he got ahead he put up * clean piece of rowing that left no doubt as to his ability to scull fast enough to be rated very high In the final heat. He steered a faultless course and reached the turning buoy Just six strokes ahead of Wilson, or about four lengths. Lewis rounded finely und was away for home In a Jiffy, still rowing a steady stroke of 29 to the minute, which he maintained all over the course. Wilson rowed hard to catch Lewis on the return trip, but It was a hopeless task. Lewis romped across the line five lengths ahead of Wilson, who beat Mc- Green Mountain Boys Greet McKinley, State Militia Camp Was Visited. March Past of the Vermont Troops.

Then tie Guests Hotel im Chauiplaio to CHESTER, Vt, Aug 13—The president of tho United States was for a time today’ the guest of the state of Vermont. He visited this afternoon the Vermont national guard encamped here in the meadow' below the town, saw a review, or whatever the military men term It, and then he hurried back to the hotel on lake (’hamplain, where he Is spending his vacation. I.aBt night the president stayed with Senator Proctor at Proctor. This morning, after a good night’s rest the distinguished visitor was up early, preparing for the Journey of the day. Mrs McKinley was in good spirits and Vice Pres and Mrs Hobart and Sec and Mrs Alger, who had spent the night at Proctor and Rutland, soon joined tho party, discussing the trip to Chester. It was a glorious morning. Yesterday’s rains had made the air clear and cool. Only a few w'hite clouds were in the sky and they made a pleasing contrast with the blue. The breeze which blew from the hills around Rutland was as bracing as any tonic contained In the physicians’ list of remedies. All these things appealed to the visitors this morning as they drove from Proctor to Rutland, about six miles. The original Intention was to ride to Rutland In the special car which had been used for the Journey from Burlington, but this morning the president decided to drive to Rutland. (^ioiiun«,l on tile Eifth Pnin> Guests of Duke of Rutland. The ladles of the party came down In the train and waited for the men to finish their drive. Several of the prominent citizens of Rutland hurried over to PROC tor to meet the president. He got Into an open carriage W’ith Percival W. Clement, who, as somebody said today, ought to be known as the duke of Rutland. GEN GUY V. HENRY, USA, Commanding U 8 Troops at Port Et Ii a1 Allan, Everything In Proctor Is managed by or associated with Senator Proctor, and nothing goes on there without his aid. It is just the same way In Rutland with the substitution of Mr Clement for Senator Proctor, The former Is mayor of the city, president of the Rutland railroad, president of a bank and president of a street railway company. Nobody can tell how many more offices he holds, but he is fully competent to fill them all. It was all right for the president w’hile he was In Proctor to be the guest of Senator Proctor, but In Rutland he must go about with Mr Clement. Vice Pres Hobart, Senator Proctor and Sec Alger were In carriages behind the president as they drove Into Rutland at about ll o’clock this morning. The president seemed to enjoy tho trip. As he was driven about the principal streets of the city, past the stores hung with bunting and through the crowds waiting to see him, he smiled and lifted hts hat with good grace. After a short drive the carriages weie directed to the railroad station, where Mrs McKinley, Mrs Hobart and their companions were waiting in the car. Dr W. Seward Webb here joined the party. He came wdth Mrs AV ebb und a party of friends In his special car. By this time the station waB crowded with people. The president and Mrs McKinley went forward and bowed several times, and In response to repeated calls the vice president, Sec Alger and Senator Proctor made brief addresses. At 11.45 the train drew out of the station for Chester. Nothing happened on the way here except lunch, but that was gratefully received. Arrival at Chester. Although the special train did not stop between Rutland and Chester, people had gathered at nearly every station, Continued on the Third Pave, PRESIDENT REVIEWS THE TROOPS.

Hodges of the park commission, accompanied by superintendent Pettigrew of the park department, visited tho refectory at Franklin park and took possession of the premises on the part of the department. Superintendent Pettigrew, with patrolmen Wrenn and Powderly of station 13 and Sergt Thornton, were left to r 'present the commissioners. The refectory was thus, according to the statement of chairman Hodges to a Globe reporter, in charge and possession of the park department, and the catering company, which had been in possession of the building since June 29, had been formally dispossessed. According to the statement made last night to a Globe reporter by John F. Cusick, president of the catering company, this is not so. The building Is still In possession of his company, and will remain so until a new lessee has been nominated by the park commissioners who shall be accepted as satisfactory by Mayor Quincy. Wednesday a new lease, with James J. Dueling named as lessee, was presented to the mayor for his approval by the commissioners, and was rejected by his honor for what he declared to be good and sufficient reasons. The refectory building at the park Is at present closed to business, and unless some amicable arrangement can be effected by the commissioners for a new lessee to take possession, it Is probable that It will remain closed until the end of the present season, Oct I. Behind the fact of the closing of the refectory and the nonacceptance of James J. Doollng as a new lessee by Mayor Quincy, is a story. John i\ Cusick, president of the catering company, was seen by a reporter last night and made a long statement: "In consequence of what I found out, I saw Mayor Quincy several times, told him the circumstances, and submitted to him in writing the full story. The park commissioners, knowing the circumstances of the case, after several meetings, finally, on Aug 2, submitted an ultimatum to the catering compony, and James Doollng, through counsel, to the effect that lf they failed to reach an agreement with each other before Aug 6, the lease would be awarded to a third party. I wrote Mayor Quincy asking him to personally investigate the matter. "The meeting mentioned by the commissioners at which the ultimatum was to go Into effect, Friday, Aug 6, was not held, Messrs Stratton and Pratt being out of town. Tuesday, Aug 16, a meeting of the board was held, and as a result of it. I received a notice to the effect that my application for a lease of the refectory had been rejected, and also notifying me to vacate the premises before IO p rn Thursday, Aug 12. "I Immediately instructed Mr Connor, the treasurer of the company, to notify the help of the closing of the refectory. The refectory was closed for business Wednesday evening, Aug II, at 6 o’clock. "Last night chairman Hodges arrived at the refectory, having driven out from the city. and demanded entrance, which was given him. He stood on the floor with hts watch In his hand until IO o'clock, when he sold, ‘I take possession of this refectory in the name of the city of Boston, and turn it over to you, superintendent Pettigrew of tho park system, to hold In charge.' He then Instructed Sergt Thornton to remove everybody from the building, but counsel Miss Jennie Buy Could Render No Assistance. Continued on the Seventh Enure. NORTH ADAMS, Aug ^-Discouraging In the extreme and practically a forlorn hope express the prospects of unearthing thu perpetrator of the Reed crime as they appear tonight. An entire week of Investigation appears to have resulted In nothing definite, and It would seem as lf the officers have now' exhuust<*d all the information that can be obtained In the city and surrounding country without turning up the real clew to the murderer, or even one that remained Intact after examination. Tonight detective J. IL Whitney returned to the city, but even ho could bring no ray of hope, and the darkness Is more Intense than ever. Col Whitney has been in Oakland, Me, where he Interviewed Miss Jennie Ray, the fiancee of Henry Reed and the holder of a number of mortgages which the money lende r executed in her name. When the detectives had seen all of tho Intimates of Reed and his sister without obtaining any substantial suggestion which would develop probabilities, even in the way of evidence, they thought that perhaps Miss Ray could give them some Inkling which no male friend of Reed's could. But Miss Ray apparently told all she knew about Mr Reed’s affairs to Tho Globe reporter who Interviewed her Monday. Although detective Whitney went over the business relations of Reed, and spoke of a number of persons In and about North Adams with Miss Ray, he found that many things she told him hail already came to his ears from other sources and had been looked Into and dropped. The young woman did mention one or two circumstances which she suggested bm being plausible explanations, but In no case was it any more than an insinuation and conjecture, as she knew of no facts upon which to base a substantial theory as to the Identity of tile murderer. Miss Ray believed that Hiram Tinney knew more about Reed's latest transactions than she did, but Mr Tinney has talked freely with the officers and testified at the Inquest. While he gave the police a number of names of men with whom Reed had had dealings, and from whom he had difficulty in collecting, yet when the stories were run down they were unproductive and had to be abandoned. Fence Climber Found. Detective Daniel W. Hammond today found the young man whom A. J. Deming allowed to climb the fence between the Sampson shoe factory property and Reed’s garden. This evening tne young man called at the station and admitted that he ha I gone over the fence Into the Reed lot, but made a satisfactory explanation of his presence there, This afternoon Mr Hammond and Deputy Sheriff Maloney drove over the Florida mountain und visited several persons In the town of Monroe, concerning whose dealings with Reed there had been a number of supposed peculiar circumstances. In every case the story that the officers had in mind was disproven and the men seen gave a frank statement of their relations with Mr Reed and also showed that they had neither motive nor were In a position to have been guilty of the murders. The detectives have a few things left y*>t upon which to work, but nothing promising. In fact the latest stuff they hold as reputed evidence has the apparent value of a Jackknife to a marble cutter as far as Its capacity for productiveness goes. Convict Died Peacefully, Almost, ’Tis Said. “Never a Reasonable Show of Recovery.” Review of the Desperate Act of the Brothers. Continuo.! tho Von-eiV. r*i«r-o With the decline of the day the sands in the hour-glass of the life of convict Herbert A. Willis ebbed away at the state prison In Charlestown yesterday until he had run his course, and the last flickering breath left the body. This youthful convict, the last years of whose life had been so replete With acts of a desperate, lawless nature, ended the sentence of a life’s confinement within the walls of the prison ut Just 4.50 p m yesterday. Looked upon with horror since It was proven by evidence and by his own admissions that he was a wayward boy, a desperado of a pronounced type, working out evil deeds in the heart of thickly settled communities within tho quiet borders of Massachusetts with a boldness that amazed; that horror. Intensified by his a^t of last Tuesday in attempting to escape from the prison by shooting down an aged turnkey and whoever should cross bls path at the moment, there were hundreds who learned the news of his death last night with no other comment than "It is best so." It was his own act which brought to so quick a termination the sentence which he began to work out on the third day of last February, With the prospect of a long life before him In which a hope of executive clemency might have been entertained with a considerably degree of assurance of Its exercise within a period of years, he chose rather to cost the die with his characteristic bold hand by shooting Ins way to freedom. The result was Inevitable. The sternness of prison discipline, the Inexorable and only duty of the prison officers In the event of Just such an emergency as confronted them when the convict and his brother, Everett P. Willis, sought to carry out the plan was nerformed, and when the smoke of powder had lifted from the muzzles of the prison officers’ pistols, the convict and his misguide J brother lay stretched upon the cold stone pavements of the guard room, the former suffering from fatal wounds und the latter suffering from painful wounds and within the clutch of the law, whose Justice will very likely place him within the prison walls to take the place which his brother vacated on his deathbed, for a long term of years. The convict died almost peacefully. He was not wholly conscious Just before tho final moment came, but at an earlier moment he realized that death was hovering ovc him as he lay upon tho cot in the prison hospital, and at Intervals he wearily opened his eyes awl glanced ai the shadow's made by the tiellis of heavy Iron bfws which shut out much of the light of the waning afternoon. Since his entrance to the hospital reports have been made that he might possibly recover. They were in a measure warranted. When he was taken to the hospital, Immediately atter the shooting, he was unconscious, aud it was thought that he would die within a few hours. Charles Wallace, 19 years, living with his parents at 229 Norfolk st, Dorchester, met a terrible death lait evening, being Impaled on the shaft of a carriage with which he came In collision on Blue Hill av boulevard, near Grove Hall, Roxbury. Harry Chapman, 24 years, a contractor, living tit C Clinton st, Dorchester, tho driver of the carriage which caused the death of the unfortunate ytung man, was taken to station 9 immediately after the accident, but after a thorough Investigation by the police he was released, aw no blame was found to attach to him. The accident happened about 8.30, when the street was crow ded with people making their way to the park, and created great, excitement, a number of woman fainting at the sight of the young man being dragged through the street on tho shaft. Mr Chapman Is thoroughly unnerved over the terrible accident. He says that ho did everything In his power to pre- ■ vent the accident, and his story is credited by the police. Wallace Is a well-known and highly respected young resident of Dorchester, and his death will be a revere blow to a host of friends. Ile was a clever bicycle rider, and, as was his custom, left his home last evening after supper In company with an intimate friend, Harry Hopkins, for a spin through Franklin park. After un enjoyable ride the two started down Blue Hill av. At this point the street is laid out with two roads, between which run the tracks of the West End. The two boys took the right ham!, or northerly road, and, It Is said, were spinning along at a good pace as they neared Grove Alai). Just how the accident happened Is not known, blit when the two riders came near U.t corner of Schuyler st, they saw before them a carriage going In th* opposite direction. Hopkins turned to the right and escaped injury. Wallace, however, turned to the left, It is said, but he was too near to the horse for safety, and before Chapman could rein In his horse the young man was caught by the shaft and dragged along for several feet. The shaft entered Wallace’s left lung and he Immediately lapsed Into unconsciousness. Chapman sprang from hi* carriage and rushed to the assistance of the injured boy. He was taken to Dur-kee’s drug store, a short distance away, and medical ald summoned. Dr Hall quickly responded, and Drs McDonald, Smith and Toomey, who were passing In a carriage, went to his assistance. Their services were without avail, however, I and ho died In about IO minutes. Th* ‘ body of the unfortunate young man wa* removed to the home of his parents. Patrolman Angili s~nt Chapman to station 9, where ne was held pending an Investigation, and was afterward re- i leased. In tho carriage with Chapman at th* time of the accident was Sutton Steve* of 18 Erie st. Both he arid Chapman tell the same story. They say that they i were riding up tho avenue on the northerly side at an ordinary road gait, j Chapman says that the first that he saw of Wallace was when his companion Steves cried out "My God!" It was then too fate, he says, to avoid a collision. He gave a description of th* location of the accident and said that h* was on the right side of the road. This the police verified. The affair was witnessed by a young woman. She ran to Durkee’s store, a block away, told what she had seen, and then telephoned for un ambulance. Her duty done she promptly fainted. While the clerks were bringing her back to consciousness the Injured young man was brought In, whereupon aho ta int ad Continued on the Fifth Fag*. Was Conscious. He lingered on, however, and the next day regained consciousness. A pint of milk was given him as nourishment Wednesday afternoon. This revived him apparently, us he took note of things going on about him and followed directions about moving his head, thrusting out his tongue and lifting hi* wrist with readiness and with some ease.
