Lizard. England. May 20.— With the Stars and
Stripes flying at her peak, and the pennant of
the Larchmont Yacht Ciub at her foretruck.
the American schooner yacht Atlantic, owned
by "Wilson Marshall, of Bridgeport, Conn.,
crossed the finish line off the Lizard, England,
it 3:15 p. m. last night (4:15 New- York time),
the v.lrjicr of the German Emperor's $5,000 cup
and of ihe biggest ocean race ever sailed across
ihe Atlantic. Her time, twelve days and two
hours, is the fastest ever made by a sailing
yacht for the distance— 2,9os nautical miles.
She has also broken the record for the fastest
tingle day's run, Cor on the seventh day out
che is s<iid to have lodged 041 miles, which is
thirteen miles more than the famous run of the
Schooner Dauntless in ISS7, in her race against
the Coronet. No other yachts bad been reported
.■when the Atlantic finished.
• Captain Charlie Barr, the Atlantic's skipper,
could hardly have steered a straighter course
If he had had a steamer under him, for the
actual distance ■ailed was 3,000 miles — only 54
miles further than the air line from Sandy Hook
Lightship to the Lizard.

Electric Lighting Measure Defective
— Defeat Due to McCarren.
Albany. May t-'O.— The gas attorneys Bcore 1
a Mff victory to-day and apparently succeeded
in effecting the defeat of the bill regulating
in- pi ice of electricity sold to the city. After
nursing their secret until it was too
lat; fi be acted on, they announced through
thoir attorney, Charles F. Mathewson, to-day
that this measure was defects e and that ti.
signed by Mayor McClellan was not a true copy
of the bill of it passed the legislature, since one
Iment was left out. Investigation showed
this almost unprecedented circumstance to be
true. It i? too late for a correct copy to \<o son:
to the Mayor, for the Mayor to give three- days'
of hearing, listen to the arguments and
sign the measure iigrain and send it back to the
The defeat Is due to Pennt^r McCarren, who
added the amendment In the debate of the gas
Mils. The words left out are as follows: "For
electric street lamps consuming 325 watts of
electric current at the arc, $9(1 per lamp per
year." The words appear on the Senate and
Assembly records. The mistake Is charged either
to the clerk <>t o the State printer, and the
matter is now being Investigated
Governor Biggins said to-night thiit he did
nol believe there was any deliberate Intention
In i he affair. He added that there had been
many mistakes by the printer this year. He
may ask the Bpecia] session to repass the bill,
but this is imi certain, Th« net result is that
the state <;as Commission will have to regulate
this matter as well as that of the price of gas.

Admiral To^o immediately started at full
