Yale kept SiwL. 8ulng T? p B tne flnillh' did not show any sign of exhaustion as they rested on their oars after crossing Tha Harvard boys, on the other hand showed plainly the effeots of their hard but unavailing struggle. The loser's time was 31 mins, 40 sees. The crowd of spectators was the largest seen here OB a llmilar occasion for many years. All ong the course from start to finish were scattered scores of large sail and steam yachto, large excursion steamers like the Rhode Island, City of Worcester, Elmlrly and others and countless small yachts and open boau of every description crowded to UM utmost capacity. On the west bank was the moving obser- vation train of thirty-four cars; at the aavy yard, opposite the two-mile flag, the large wharf and inau-of war Yantic, and MSuTatturlS "of" conditions were there being a Blight ripple on the water caused by breexe from the sound. A pushed off from the float and paddled to the starting point, Har- vard getting into their boat and following aa soon as Yale came in sight. Both crews backed up to the line in a business-like manner aud were given the word "go" without delay. Harvard made much the bett.r start, sending the bow of their shell to the front, and by a pretty piece of rowing gained nearly a length, Yale show being opposite the Harvard coxswain. Ha-JUrd kept this lead to the quarter, where'mie's powerful and ma- chine-like stroke changed matters very deddedly. Yale's began to move np and by a magnificent exhibition of rowing the shells were again on even terms, half a length before machine the half-mile Bag. Some Idea of this desperate xlrnutAe may be had from the fact that the bow of Yale s boat gamed on Harvard at the rate of one man for each four strokes This was kept up until Yale's shell was half a length in front. Yale held thisadvantage to the three-quarter, where Harvard suc- ceeded in reducing it to one-fourth length These positions were maintained to the mile flag. Just after passing that flag Harvard increased her stroke and again pushed their shell up even with Yale Here another splendid exhibition of row- Ing was given by both crews. It was difficult to tell which crew was ahead so evenly were they matched, but as they passed the mile point Harvard apparently had a slight advantage. Near- ing the navy yard Yale struck a strip of smoother water under the lee and by an- other spurt again took the lead passing the S-mile Hag with a lead of half a length Harvard tried hard to respond to Yule's spurt, but its effort resulted in giving a slight roll to their bout causing the cox- swniii to swerve a trifle. Harvard had evidently made their greatest effort and failing to hold her position dropped gradually behind until at the end of the third mile Yale was one length ahead. Here both crews were pulling 36 stokes, ami nothing was gained or lost during the next half mile. At 3% miles Yale began to show clour water, and grad- ually pulled away from their rivals. As Yale crosssd the finish line the crew stopped rowing aud waived their hands at Remits of Yeiterday'i Gurnet In the Three Turf Notes. PLAYKHS' I.KAOUB.

WASHINGTON, June 2S.-In the house yesterday the debate on the national elec- tion bill was resumed. Mr. Flower of New York attributed the agitation for u reformed ballot to the fat- frylngs, blocks of five, etc of the last election, and he said that In view of these the Republican party had chosen a most inappropriate tune to enact this law. He spoke of the prospective expenses under new local election laws, ami said that a single election in New York now would cost ballots alone He thought the people who would subject themselves to this burden could be H.S wifely relied upon to conduct fair elections as could Irresponsible federal officials. In conclu- sion Mr. Flower said that the immediate effect of the law would tie most harmful to the whole country, but tlmt ultimately the people would drive from power the party that sought to profit by it. Mr. Sniyser of Ohio said the measure was conservative and not radical. The cost of executing it hud been exaggerated, oat fair elect-ions were well worth any cost. The South had been let alone for fifteen years to work out its own destiny. He did not know whether it was any nearer the kingdom, but be protested against It seeking to work out the salva- tion of Hie North on Hie siime line. Mr. Vaux of Pennsylvania said that, the lill virtually overturned the constitution a destroyed our form of government ne constitutional meaning of the phrase time, pinro and mnnner" was tl at t.lie power of tniigress Waa limited to prescrib- ing the form .if choosing representatives, and Unit n-ln-n the election itself liegan its authority reused.

Dun weekly review of trade says: "The prolonged uncertainties regarding legislation which have been by no means diminished during the past week .and the continuance of gold have an un- favorable effect upon business. While the volume of trade as indicated by special reports by bank exchanges at interior cities and by railroad earnings, coutinues larger than in the aame month of any previous year, the prospect for the future is rendered less satisfactory by industrial hesitation and by doubt iu regard to the monetary outlook.

Johnson was dismissed by the school board and arrested for crimes. About fifty witnesses testified during the trial which lasted three days, anil the testimony was revolting in the extreme. The testi- mony of the witnesses was so contradictory however, that the jury rendered a verdict of not guilty, and placed the costs amounting to J450, upon Garraghan. UalB Curling to be Stopped.
