THE COMINC GUP DEFENDER.
After n great deal of conjecture
and guesswork, and few facts, re
garding the new sloop which I ho
Atlantic Yacht Club of NowYtik
has ordered built to defend the
America's cup next summer, the
following particulars of the craft
have been given out for publication:
The new vessel will be do feet 1
inch long over all, and 8'3 feet 8
inches long on the load water line.
She will have an extreme beam of
L'!l feet 2 inches, u depth of 12 feet
II inches, and her extreme draught
will bo 8 feet 10 inches with her
centreboard up. Due peculiarity of
her model is that her extreme
draught is about one-fourth of the
length of keel forward of her stern
post, her draft I feet abaft the stem
being 1 feet fi inches, and at her
keel 8 feet 7 inches. With her cen
treboard down, she will draw 'JO
feet 0 inches of water. The over
hang forward is 1 1 inches ; aft it is
10 feet G inches. The rake of the
stempost is 'A inches to the foot.
Her least free board is .'5 feet Jl
inches: height of rail forward, 10
inches; amidships, IT) incites ; nft, 7
inches. She will carry 110 tons of
lead on her bottom and 12 tons in
side. The lead on the outside is to
be moulded on to conform to the
shape of the hull, anil that within
oast to lit between the frames, as
The build of tiio backbone of the
new vessel is peculiar. Amidships
there will be a double keel made of
white oak timbers, 21 inches square,
and from 50 to .r)5 feet long. Pro
jecting from between these, forward
"and aft to the ends of the vessel,
and securely scarfed to the double
la-el, will be two timbers, 12 inches
wide by 21 deep, which arc called
the kceisons. Under these keelsons
and the double keel will be placed
the white oak keel proper, which
will be moulded to coincide with
the V shaped bottom of the hull,
lint about .'12 feet aft of the step of
the stem, instead of continuing the
oak undcrkeel, thu lead will be
moulded on. The lead begins just
abreast of the piulal on which the.
centreboard swings, and continues
aft on both sides of the centreboard
well, and will continue aft about 35
The forward end of the lead is
about -lh feet aft of the stepof the
mast. The lead will be bolted to
the big keel timbers through and
throuirh with diagonal 1A and 2-inch
holts, four to each bent. As the
butt of the forward keel extends aft
between the big keel timbers to the
forward end of the centreboard box,
the mast will have a very substan
The stem will be made of white
oak, 8x14 inches large, and the
stern post will be 8x10 inches. The
frames will be made double, of
while oak below the water line and
hacmatack above, each frame being
10x5 at the heel. They will be
placed 2G inches apart from centre
to centre. They will be mortised
into the keel and further strength
ened at the joint by iron floors Unit
will be two inches thick at tho angle.
The ends of the floors will turn up
abreast the centreboard box, and
will bo bolted to its lower plank.
The garboards and plank will be
2i-inch Oregon pine, and the wales
S'incli white oak, tapering to 2A at
the ends. The bilge strakes will be
3xC-iuch Georgia pine. The ceiling
between bilge strakes will be 2-inch
The beams that support the mast
will be made Gxl2 inches, the part
ners being the full depth of the
beams and kneed and bolted through
Tho designer has determined that
the frame shall not be strained by
any amount of carrying on in heavy
weather. To make the chain plates
to which the shrouds are set up
amply secure, they will be let into
the frames and riveted to diagonal
Tho centreboard trunk, or box,
will be made of Georgia pine, and
built clear up to the deck beams, to
which it will be notched. The
centreboard will bo made of five
inch white oak, bolted together with
li-inch iron bolts. It will have a
knife-edged bottom, faced with
The cabin will be floored and
divided up with white pine, but the
' hatch coamings and companion-way
will he made of mahogany. The
forecastle will be fitted for a crow
of eight men, but that is, of course,
no indication of the number of her
crew on racing days.
To give extra strength to the hull
.amidships, 10 U-inch iron bolts will
be placed abreast tho centreboard
trunk, running through tho keel
timbers and up through the deck
beams, setting up with turnbuckles.
A copper cutwater will extend from
one foot above the water lino to
three feet below it. She will have
a Perley steering gear, with a hard
The mast will be of Oregon pine,
about 81 feet long, and 20 inches
diameter at the deck; tho main
boom 7G feet long, by 15 inches
diameter; the bowsprit 51 feet long,
by 17 inches in diameter; tho gnff,
of spruce, -18 feet long, by U in
ches diameter ; topmast, of spruce,
18 feet long, by 11 inches diameter,
and the spinnaker polo 75 feet long,
by 12 inches in diameter. She will
carry four topsail sprits and a double
set of the light spars.
Everything about her is to be
made under the supervision and to
tho satisfaction of l'hilip Ellsworth,
her designer. The club expects to
go sailing in her on May 1. Since
it has been announced that Kllswoith
would design a yacht for the Atlan
tic club, ho lias received numerous
letters from would-be designers sug
gesting astonishing features, une
man wanted him to make a hollow
centieboard and (111 it with quick
silver for ballast. As the quicksilver
would cost anywhere from 875,000
to 100,000, and when in place
would be just where it isn't wanted,
the suggestion was not adopted.
Neither was another suggestion,
which was to make the bottom
round, like an inverted U, making
the bilges lower than the keel.

aMIE undersigned, a Committco of Dl
. lectors of the L'quitnblo Life As
surance Society of thu United Suites,
appointed to formulate the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by tho
Society to the public, report:
1st Tho Society issues all the appror.
ed foims of assurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Ei.dowmcnt and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to the Directors
which form of policy is taken
2d -The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide lor annual cash divi
dends and a surrender value; nre lndls
putablo after three years and payable
immediately after proof of death.
3d Tho premiums on a Tontine po
licy nre tho samu as on the Ordinary
Lite, but, while the latter is only pay.
able in tho event ol dvath, the holder of
iho Tontine policy lias the right to draw
the whole of the reserve and the accu
mulated profits in cash at the end of a
stated period; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years are past,
lie can, without any larger, premium
than on an ordinary policy, secure these
greater udvantuges. '
4th Experience shows that tho return
paid in cash oil maturing Tontine po
licies approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that tho average cost of tho
assurance will bo only about the interest
on the premiums.
Oth Tontine policies, like others, aro
paid In full in tho event of death at any
lime during thu term of tho policy, and
aro incontestable after three years, and
payablo Immediately after duo proof of
Oth Experience shows that tho mor.
tallty is lower among Tontine policy,
holders, as tho better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is n consider
able source of profit.
7th Tontine policies will bo made
non-forfcitablo under tho laws of tho
State, if so desired at tho time the as-
suranco is effected.
8th Tho Tontine system is fair and
just; its accounts arc accurately kept,
separate from all other business; tho
funds judiciously invested and improv
ed, and thu accumulated protlts faith
fully guarded and properly nppoi tinned.
Oth The Society has since its organi
zation transacted a larger amount of
new business than any oilier company,
while its now business for the tlrst halt
of the present year is $1,750,000 larger
than that of tho llrst half of 1884. It
has Assets of $00,000,000; over $14,000,
