Iowa, Aug. 7.-Two doalhs and two others injtirod, one probably fatally, marKed the inititl, 300-mjle automobile derby on the neir mile ."ipeedway here tnis afternoon. The judgM at 2:30 o'clock this morning awarded the race to Mulford and ranked Do Pnlrna second. Mul-lord's offlcial time was announced as threi; hours 27 minUlPS 5 3-5 seconds. Dc I'alma'.s time, three hours 28 minutes 12.2 aeconds. .foe Cooper was killed during the 3Rth lap of the race, when his car literally sailed over .the outer edge of of Ihc bowl as he was nearing the grandstand and lanrfert outside, with i.'ooper and his mechanician, Louis Poio, -pinned underneath the wreckage. The second accident came near the close of the race, when, in the 238th lap, Billy Chandler's car crashed against the inside rail, almost opposite ihe point where Cooper had met his death. Jlorris Kecler, Chandler's ,. n�echanic:ian, died at the hospital at ; n o'clock tonight. Chandler had less . i than an even" chance for recovery. Peio, one of the victims of the first accident, was reported also to be in a critical conditions. Cooper's skull was crushed in Lh',-first, accident and his death was practically instanranf.ous. In both accidents tire blowouts wti-d ascribed ?s the cause, although.' in thp casi- of Cooper a broken steer-' in? kniirklc Mas said to havo been the immediate reason for his loss of control. Aft?r striking the ground outside tbe track the tiionicntum of the car was so great that the car crashed into the end of the grandstand and forced its way under the structure. Oflicial.s said Cooper was .^oing at the rate of 100 miles an hour at the time. 'I'he rate il.self was full of thrills, aside from its tragic features. For the most of the 300 miles it was a nip and tiirk aflair between Dc Pal-_ ma, Muliord and O'DonncU, the for-Shawker 1 mcr keeping the lead the greater, part of the time. In the last 1.') miles, hov.cver, he developed a run of bad luck with hjs tires, which threaton-4 cd to lose him lirst place, but be 4 : forged ahead in the last, three miles and crossed the � line ahead of Mulford.

M'LOUGHLIN WINS FROM WILLIAMS PLAYERS FLOUNDER ON TURF-NO LOBBING-McLOUGHLlN'S FORE HAND DRIVES TERRIFIC Boston, .tug. 7.-.Maurice K. Loughlin, of t-Jan Francisco yesterday defeated II. .\orris Williams 11. of this city, tlie national lawn tennis champion, in Ihc challenge match of the Longwood singles, the oldest tennis tournament under iliib .luspices in the 1 nited States. The score was 6-3, 6-3, 2-6, fi-2. lixcept in one set McLoughlin was master of noarlv every situation. Williams' method of procedure at the outsat was to rush his opponent to such an critent that the Californian would be unable to get openings, but the latter's dcfen?c was so tight that Williams soon had to fall back on his otvn defense. No important tennis match probably was every played under worse conditions of weather and turf. A light rain fell during the afternoon, and the players literally fioundered about, often" sprawling on the grass, so insecure was the footing, Mc-I.oughlin's terrific forehand drives from back court were iargelv responsible for his victory. The game developed little or no' lobbing, and Mcr Loughlin did not go to the net more than half a dozen times. 1( was the nrst time that the players had met i-ince tbe national championship tournament at Newport, a year ago, when Williams won the title ironi the Californian. Bv today's; victory .McLoiighlin secures permanent possession of the Longwood bowl, having previously won two legs on it.
