After the hearing of the evidence
the defense moved to discharge the
defendant on the ground that as the
Judge had neglected to sign the
jurat in the warrant of arrest it was
null and void and consequently the
trial was of the same character. The
motion was overruled:
Habeas corpus proceedings were
begun before Judge Kepoikai and
the case was submitted on an agreed.

The second of the craft to make
port was the little Gwendolyn II,
one of the smallest boats which has
ever competed in a trans-ocean race,
which had a handicap of 17 hours
and more, and thus was far and
away the best boat for the second
place. The Lady Maud, entry from
San Diego, got in at 1 o'clock, mak
ing her third.
The race is a very remarkable one

finished so close together thai three
of them came into port within six
hours of each other, and most re
markable in the showing which the
little Gwendolyn made.
Whatever the other craft, design
ed by-experts, and built by men
with years of experience, may have
done, the fact remains that the
feature of the event, and that which
will draw the eyes of the world, is
the showing made by this little craft,
designed and built by two boys of
Seattle, and sailed independently by
them in this long race, with such
success that they will henceforth be
the proud possessors of one of the
cups which has been offered.
The race was so close that there is
no use of anyone being hurt by the
defeat; the slightest advantage was
enough to have done the trick. Cap
tain Harris expresses confidence in
the craft he sailed, in case she has a
wind, lie still believes, her a great
On the Gwendolyn things were
exciting. She is a 17-ton craft, yawl
rigged: a tiny thing, but dry and
seaworthy, and as fast for a race of
this sort as one could want. With
out the speed for a short distance
which so large a boat as the Lurline
would have, she is a beauty for a
long leg ot this kind. The 22'.V2
miles down here she covered in two
long tacks. This is as good as the
Lurline did, and epiite a remarkable
evidence of seamanship. She came
along in almost as direct a course as
could well be sailed, and did not go
off to leeward. a foot.
She was sailed by Captain Rcd

board in tho person of Thornston,
who is thoroughly acquainted witli
the waters off San Pedro.
Coming out of San Pedro, she last

Lady Maud go off also to leeward
