Aanoal Boat Raoe Betwoon Two la Vtotory Woaran of NEWLOJTDOS, COSH.. June Yale-Harvard annual eight-oared boat race was rowed last evening over a four- straight-away course on the Thames river, and was won by Yale by 3J{ lengths in 21 minutes seconds. This was the fifteenth annual race be- tween these universities, and it was Yale's fifth successive victory. Yale has won nine and Harvard six of the fifteen races. The race was a remarkably close and exciting one for the first three miles, neither crew being able to gain a de- cisive lead. Harvard was ahead twice for brief periods, but Yale quickly re- covered by spurting. Yale's staying qualities finally prevailed, and during the last mile the blues trained slowly but surely on their competitors. After passing the third mile flag, Har- vard's stroke seemed to lose some of its effectiveness. The shell rolled some- what, and three or four swerves by the coxswain helped to retard the crim- sons. Yale kept up the long, steady swing with an almost faultless precision to finish, and the men did not show any sign of exhaustion as they rested on their oars after crossing the line. The Harvard boys, on the other hand, showed plainly tho effects of their hard but unavailing struggle. The crowd of spectators was the largest seen here on a similar occasion for many years. All along the course from start to finish were scattered largo excursion steamers and countless yachts and open boats of every description crowded to their utmost capacity. On the west bank was the moving observa- tion train of thirty-four cars; at the navy yard opposite the two-mile flag, the wharf, the man-of-war Yantic and the sloping bank at, the finish were black with people.

Md Halts Do Compromise Effected With Illinois Cen- tral Trainmen and Work Is Resumed. CHICAGO, June Illinois Cen- tral strike has been settled and traffic on that road was resumed Friday after- noon. Superintendent Sullivan made the strikers a verbal offer yesterday morning which he refused to put in writing until the men had accepted it. The concession amounted to a shorten- ing of Superintendent Russell's power in certain directioui. Among other things Sullivan agreed that Russell will not have the power to hire or discharge other employes than those directly under him. Russell will still be superintendent of the Chicago division of the road and have the power to appoint the heads of departments under him and the clerks in his ofSce, but no others. The power to and discharge brakomen, engineers, switchmen, conductors and firemen will rest with the heads of de- partments, and not with Russell. The strikers considered Mr. Sullivan's proposition for five hours and finally decided to accept it. All trains are now running.____________ LOTTERY JMEN IN LINE. Louisiana Senators Will Report Favora- bly on the BUI to fUnctv tho Charter. BATOX ROUGE.. -Tune the Sen- ate yesterday the lottery bill came up and was referred to the Committee on Drainage and Charities. The committee amended it in accordance with the pledge made in the Uouse to Represent- ative Lawler, making tbe amount paya- ble annually Sl.250.090 and providing that the additional 3250.030 annually shall go to the general fund of the Stale. A proposal to make the annual payment was voted down. The committee, then by a vote of six to three, decided to report the bill fa- vorably as amended, but agreed to defer reporting it until Monday to give the to Mot NEW YORK, Jane O. Dwi Ca's Weekly Bavlew ot Trade Says: The prolonged uncertainties regarding legislation, which have by no means di- minished during the past week, and the continuance of gold exports have an un- favorable effect upon business. While the volume of trade continues larger than in the same month of any previous year, the prospect for the future is ren- dered less satisfactory by industrial hesitation and by doubt in regard to the monetary outlook. The movement of gold to Germany is understood to be connected with operations of bankers in placing heavy South American loans, but could hardly occur even under these circumstances if there were not, On the part of foreign capitalists, some real- izing or less investment than usual in American securities. Industrial hesitation results from the delay of legislation, and increased un- certainty regarding the outcome. Wool is weaker in the interior and at eastern markets and a disposition Is shown to meet the needs ot manufacturers., The latter buy sparingly and many factories are shutting down. Cassimere works are badly supplied with orders, and while makers of dress goods and worsteds are in better position, thejr outlook is not entirely satisfactory. It is felt that the greater part ot a year will now be required to clear the mar- kets of supplies of foreign goods under present duties, even if the proposed tar- iff should be adopted. This uncertainty also affects estimates of the future de- mand for iron and the addition of new furnaces weakens that market. transactions in structural iron aad rails have been closed, but without strength- ening prices. In the boot and shoe business, while higher prices are asked and obtained, confidence as to the future seems less strong, and the cotton manufacturer finds the material too high for goods at present prices. The general level of prices te lower, in part because of reac- tion from the many speculations which the prospect of unlimited silver coin- age engendered. The defeat of that measure in the House leaves some doubt whether any agreement between the houses -will be found practicable. and this has a chilling influence on many speculations, but at the same time lessens the anxiety felt at some monetary centres. Business at other cities is well maintained for the season, and the exceedingly confident tone hitherto prevailing, does not abate.

The history of the prosecutions of some of our Fed- eral courts was already rank with unscrupulous of the law. Among the other acts of this Coagress this bill stood prominent as a reckless, desperate measure to maintain a mi- nority in power whose purpose was to offer an opportunity for fraud. Mr. Smyser, ot Ohio, said the measure was conservative and not radical. The cost of exe- cuting It had been exaggerated, but fair elec- tions wen well worth an; cost. The South bad been lot alone for fifteen years to work out its own destiny. He did not know whether it was any nearer the kingdom, but he protested against it seeking to work oat the salvation of the North on the same line. Mr. VsOX, of Pennsylvania, said that the bill virtually overturned the Constitution and de- stroyed oar form of government. The consti- tutional meaning ot the phrase "time, place and manner." was that the power of Congress was limited to prescribing the form of choos- ing Rapreaentatlves. and that when the election Jtselt began, Us authority ceased.

He thought there should be careful attention not merely to the future interests of the people immediately concerned, but also the preservation of the just balance of power In the Senate between the different geo- graphical sections of the country. Mr. Morgan yielded the floor to Mr. Dawes to present the disagreement of the House conferees on amend- ments to tho Legislative, Executive and Ju- dicial Appropriation bill providing Increases ot compensation for Senate employes. Another conference was ordered. Mr. Monran denounced the implied bargain under which Wyoming was to vote for a Repub- lican candidate in the next Presidential elec- tion in return for the action of Congress in ad- mitting the Territory.

He left four marines in charge of the prem- ises. Mr. Baird had refused to obey two orders to close his factory. Captain Walker also caused Mr. Baird's factory at Sandy Point to be closed. It had been running two years, so that the modus Vivendi does not apply. Mr. Baird will fight Captain Walker in the courts, believing that he can not enforce the modus vivendi legally. Twenty-six lobster packers will take tbe same course. There is great excitement here.
