The calling out of tho militia

A new and sorious element in

Tho British must keep the Ba

however, that the other ohiefa
may follow the example of Mo

with tho British armored train
south of Eimborly flays:
"Tug train came upon tne Uurg

tho railway. The Burghers fired
upon tho train with Mausers and

New York, October 16. The cup which the old schooner America won so handi
ly over the course around the Isle of Wight In i85tVind brought across the seas will
probably remain here another year. In a glorious breeze, over a windward and lee
ward course of thirty miles the Columbia scored against the Shamiock to-day In the
first race of the 1899 series for the trophy. She bounded across the finish line fully a
mile and a half ahead of the challenger, defeating her by ten minutes and fourteen
seconds actual time, or ten minutes and eight secqnds corrected time, after allowing
the six seconds handicap which the Columbia must concede to the challenger on ac
count of her longer water line. It was a decisive contest, a magnificent race, magnifi
cently sailed and magnificently won. " ,

out the race.
It Is undoubtedly a bitter blow, because the English hopes of lifting the cup have
never been higher since the Thistle met the Volunteer In 1887. Like the Shamrock,
she was decisively defeated in the first hour's sailing. The regatta committee as a
result of the showing made by the Columbia to-day are convinced that the cup Is safe.
Blow high or low, the Columbia, It is believed by the manager, Mr. lselln, can beat
the Shamrock. Sir Thomas, like the true sportsman that he Is, confessed after the
race that he had been fairly beaten. He had no apologies to make.

The Shamrock footed valiantly, but neither In speed or in pointing could she
compare with the Columbia. Then the three skippers on the challenger put their
heads together and tried new tactics:
Evidently her skippers were under the Impression that she was Quicker on her heel

the wind continued to freshen, the Shamrock took In her baby jib topsail, figuring
that without this light head sail she might be able to. hug the wind a little closer.
The Columbia held oh to hers, and as the Shamrock did not Improve her position at
the end of ten minutes her skippers again set the. sail.
Nothing could have been prettier than the way the Columbia swept around the
outer mark, gracefully as a swan. Both boats had eJged to the southward of their
course, and as the rules required that the mark shall be passed on the starboard hand,

scared deer. Her big balloon jib blossomed out forty eight seconds later. The few
ships of the excursion fleet at the outer mark gave her a rousing reception. The
bhamrocu was already Hopelessly beaten. A quarter of a mile from the mark on
the home run the Columbia crossed the path of the Shimrock, still beating to wind
ward and robbed her of the wind for a minute as she went by. It was nine minutes
and forty-nine seconds later when the Shamrock swung around the mark and squared
away for the finish. The excursion boats, however, hung on courteously until she
had rounded and cave her aulte an ovation.
The Columbia was already nearly two miles away, and In the thickening mist could
hardly be discerned.
There was a soul-stirring sceneas the Coluniblaapproached the finish. Excursion

SHAMROCK SUFFERS ACCIDENT.
New York, Oct. 17. The topmast of the cup challenger the Shamrock was rrled
away twenty-five minutes after the big single-sticker had crossed the stat .ng line
today, and her enormous club topsail, with Its 3000 feet of canvas, came rattling down
on the deck, leaving hera hopeless cripple.
No amount of pluck or courage could face such a catastrophe and Captain Hoz.irth
Immediately abandoned the race, towinc
cleared away the wreckage.
1 he Columbia continued over tne course aione, placing to her credit the second of
the races for the America's cup. The accident to the Shamrock ruined the race and
caused the keenest regret among yachtsmen and the thousands of sightseers who
were on hand to witness what had promised to be a glorious duel. It is unfortunate
that the defender should have been the beneficiary of an nccldent, as there Is little glo

pairs are allowed, but onceover the line If anything carries away the sufferer must
make such repairs as he can, or, If rendered hors de combat, as the Shamrock was to
day, he must take the consequences. There Is good sense and logic behind the rule.

it was tho understanding of tbo
officials that such occupation
would occur in tho important

to disintegrate the insurgent
