Washington, Oct. 6 Admiral
Dewey believes the report taken
to Manila yesterday by a Domin
ican friar that Aguinaldo had
issued orders to Filipino soldiers
in northern provinces to return to
their towns and roanmo farming.
The admiral is of the opinion
that such a move on the part of
Aguinaldo indicates that tbe
insurgent commander is weaken
ing rb a result of tbo formidable
preparations being made by this
this Government to euppiess the
insurrection during the coming
dry season. The returning of the
soldiers to their homes is, tbe ad

the disintegration of the insurgent
army, and he urges tbat reinforce

, New York, Oct 7. Old Boreas again to-dajJ played battledore and shuttlecock
with the great stngle-stockers, and the third attempt to sail the first race of the Columbia-Shamrock
series for the America's cup ended In failure. The race was declared
off fifteen minutes before the time limit expired, with the yachts still five miles from
the finish. But the vast throngs who went down to the sea to witness the battle
royal were In a measure compensated by seeing a magnificent light weather duel.
In the ei4 the disappolnment of the patriots was sharpened perhaps by the fact
that when the race was abandoned the Columbia was In the lead and Improving her
position, and had It been finished to-day the American champion might have had one
race to her credit.
As a result of to-day's struggle and those of Tuesday and Thursday, the talent are
a good &nl confounded. Some of them differ as to the merits of the two boats, but
they seem unanimous upon two things thatythe Shamrock Is the ablest boat that

is more ably handled than the defender. The superior seamanship of Captain Hog
arth and his crew was demonstrated at several critical points In the race to-day.
Though to CaptalnBarr and the nervy managing-owner of the Yankee sloop be
long the credit of executing as brilliant and daring a piece of seamanship as was ever
witnessed In a yacht race. Its recklessness caused a great deaPof nervousness and anxie
ty: Its accomplishment therefore, made the pulses oi the Americans beat higher with
pride. It was the spectacular feature of the day and fortune favored the brave.
The Irish boat did undeniably better worK to windward. She carved her way up
into the wind in astonishing style. But here again the Columbia seemed to be able
to more than make up In footing what she, lost In pointing, and as the ability of a
sailing vessel Is determined by her power to make headway against an adverse wind,
she Is the better boat by that test.
The Columbia had the better at the start. She bounded across the line like a
racehorse, with mainsail, club topsail and staysail drawing and spinnaker down to
starboard ready for the race before the wind, and ten seconds afterward her jib broke
out like a cloudburst. The Irish boat went over seventeen seconds later, with the
same rig. I he patriots were wua wnn aengnt. bui ineir entnusiasm was short
lived, the wuy cngnsn snipper luneu to run mrougnine ianKees lee to the weath
er position, uaptain uarr tried to nead on this movement Dy turning also. This

coast and straight for the mob of 500 vessels gathered for the run-down. Thetor

The Shamrock got the best of the luffing match, blanketing" her rival and getting
to windward of her. Then, when both had squared off In their course and let go
their spinnakers, thousands waited and watched. Slowly, very slow at first, Inch by
Inch, the defender of the cup drewawav despite the Shamrock's repeated and tireless
efforts to banket her. Once clear, the white beauty forged ahead rapidly.
She had established a comiortame lead wnen the Breeze lightened and hauled
more to tne nonnwara.
The Shamrock, as ojv the two former days, profited by the seemingly light air
and began to crawl up. But she did more. Captain Hogarth took in the Shamrock's
spinnaker when the mark was sighted, gibed the Shamrock and trimmed down the
balloon jib topsail with great rapidity, and, with everything'drawlng splendidly, be
fore the American knew It, he was luffing up toward the Columbia. Captain Barr,
on the Columbia, then followed suit, but the Shamrock had passed him well to wind
ward. Captain Hogarth then set his spinnaker to port and Increased the lead.
Cantaln Barr seemed unwilling at first to follow the lead of the Englishman and
waited almost fifteen minutes, while the Shamrock overhauled and passed him before
he followed suit. The Shamrock was a hundred yards ahead before he got his sails
trlmmrrt to the new conditions.
Soon afterward tne wind nauieu around still further, making it a broad reach to
the mark. Both took In their spinnakers and eased their sheets. Then the white flyer
gained steadily. The yachts were now about a mile and a half from the outer mark.
uauantiy tne American came on. 11 was nstomsning now last sne glided
through the water. Hope rose; the Shamrock was to windward: they were coming
like horses down the stretch; a hundred feetaivay andthe Columbia had closed the
gap; her slender prow Just lapped the stern of the green hull.

It did not seem possible that the white boat could saueeze In between the Sham
rock and the mark. To the onlookers it seemed inevitable that unless the Yankee boat
kept away under the stern of the ShamrocK mere would ue a collision or the Columbia
would foul the float. But C. Oliver Iselln had desperate 'courage In a tight place. He
played the limit. The man who set a club topsail In a driving gale In the deciding race
between the Vigilant and Valkyrie II would stop at nothing.

down in almost the Bamo time
about ten and a half days.
Tho American ship George
Curtis, Captain Calhoun, left San
Francisco early in tho afternoon
of Sunday, the 8th instant, and
was followed shortly afterwards
by the bark S. C. Allen.
Of course, it was a race to Ho
nolulu and a very close one too.
The Curtis had only a small start
of the Allen and ehe got in here
two or threo hours ahead of the
latter vessel, making tbe quickest
time between porta. Ten and a

vessels' logs show tall figures in
