between the Defender and tho Vigilant has at
last taken lnco bat It cannot bo raid that thoso
Interested In tho boats areas much wtocr 1 con
cerning their respective abilities us thoy ex
pected to be Fresher Information they cer
tainly have but soma which they confidently
expected to secure Is not nt hand I Is reason
ably certain from the trial for Instance that
the Defender can beat the Vigilant In tire light
weather conditions which prevailed but there
Is I still room for doubt ns to tho amount of
time she could beat her or whether the
Defender showed a light weather speed
which would Inspire confidence In a race
with Valkyrlo III under similar circum
stances Nor I there sufficient Information to
prove Defender heavier weather qualities as
compared with Ylgllnnt An unsatisfac
tory trial would bo tho verdict on the face of
things but still there were many instructive
and Interesting features Tire Defenders
Intorstnl ffentore p
ple looked ta from sorrowful when tho Vigilant
practically gave up the trial with Defender well
ahead and Increasing her lead HoW the VII
lants pooplo lookcd or felt no ono her can say
for after stopping tho trial sbo took a tow from
her tender tho Aeronaut and went to the west
ward Her sudden change of base leads how
ever to 1 fair inference that she had got
enough for a time and that her people preferred
to postpone I decisive Issue until the race at
New York next Saturday
DEFENDERS GOOD nEAcmna
The boats will surely meet oil Sandy Hook on
the day named and both will be In better shnpo
than at present In the mean time it can be
briefly said of todays trial that In a light
northerly air of not over ten miles an hour the
Defender was very Ito better than Vigilant In
a spinnaker run dead to leeward that on I
reach with 1 beam wind the Defender hoe
marked superiority and that In a couple at
tack to windward sho made a material gain
though smaller than that on the rah As the
distance in each of the three classes of work
could be but very roughly estimated neither
the speed mae by the boats nor the time be
tween them could b calculated with any ac
curacy and it is in this respect more than any
other that tho trial n as unsatisfactory No re
liable comparisons with previous racing on
either side of the water can b made but it
o ms Clear that the Defender will be
much faster than the Vigilant In
thln 1lant light
airs and probably In stronger ones Un
til a race between fixed pint and over
measured distances is had timing and incidental
comparisons cannot bo attempted with confi
dence During toda a trial the Sea was smooth
except for a long roll which came heaving In
from the southeastward The scone was tho
stretch of water from Beaver Tall Light and
Hrentons nee Lightship over which so many
Goelct CUD and other memorable races halo
been decided There was a good wind In the
early morning but it weakened at the critical
time and finally came In fresh from the south
westward after the trial was over
lOU AT THE 8TAJ17
The Defender and tire Vigilant lay at anchor
In Bristol harbor all night with tho tug Aquld
neck at band At an early hour this morning
Defender and Colonla were taken In tow by the
tug and brought to an anchorage outside Goat
Island The Vigilant came down later under
sail but accompanied by her tender Shortly
after 10 oclock tho Defenders mainsail was
hoisted and fifteen minutes later her anchor
was tripped and bead sails broken out The big
club topsail was next sent aloft and then the
boat was headed to join Vigilant which was
hove to further down the bay Then side by
side but with main sheets hauled flat and no at
tempt at speed the boats funned slowly along
until about abreast of Beaver Tall Light when
the trial was begun In earnest There were
many steam and sailing yachts out to see tho
trial and the scene was a reminder of regular
race days The HerreshofTs steam yacht Ku
genie was on hand as usual with 1 largo party I
while Commodore Benedicts Oneida the Sul i
tana the Sakonnct tho Judy the Half I
Moon and W K Vanderbllfa big ocean 1

The schooner Intrepid was the largest of tbo I
sailing fleet but sloops cat un Is and catboats
abounded The Aquldncck and the fast naptha I

At 1110 I the Vlgllants spinnaker wns broken

Her spinnaker was up in stops hut she did not
break It out being apparently anxious to let the
Vigilant forge up on even term At llilfi the
boats were on about equal terms the splnnnkcr
of the Defender was broken out and the race
was fairly on
BAILING DOWN Till WIND
Defenders spinnaker was very dark In color
and showed tho cloths running parallel to the
foot Computing the tall plans of the two

highest and her club topsail tire largest At

remedied and a 113 tire big rail nan eot

In good shapo Tire wind was uronlni lighter
though while off to fiuuthward black cIt
were gathering and Block blanc was getting a
mart lower of rain Ten minutes latir tire
clouds piled up so threateningly with a pros
pect of wind from the soulliwrot that
tire Vigilant was brought around nnd
her jib topsail ann club topsail tnken
In Then he took a tow from her tender rids
sudden ending of tire trial was apparently un
endlnl In
expected by the Defenders oParlnty Half
looked clove and aloft but apparently saw no
reason for such haste in getting rid of his light
canvasoH Ho hung on to them a while but at
length took them In ns Vigilant started west

tcrlnll7 a light nlr came In from the nauthncst
arid tire Defender nas put on tire wind and
her working topsail nt Under this can
MIS sine worked out handsomely toward
Inlnt Judith panned tho neil buoy and caiiitht
tho Vigilant it couple of miles beyond It The
latter cast off her lino to tire tender and eet her
working topsails and bend sails anti the boats
undid together for a blip A little later the
Vigilant continued westward while the De
fender returned to this port and dropped her
mud hook nt tire outside anchorage early In the
evenlnic Mio bad not done unite ns well In
the trial AS was expected from her brush
with Colonla 1 week ago But sho
was far nom a disappointment along
side the fast Vigilant and gne promise
of something much better when In firstclass
trim It takes n fast boat to beat the Vigilant
but Defender did It todny anti should do It
when they meot In a race There Is I no reason to
change previous estimates of her except pos
sibly dunn tbo wind when It must be admitted
she did not show the speed indicated from the
Colonta trial
SYNDICATE MFUHFRS WELL PLEASED
Mr belo and Mr Morgan expressed them
selves as null pleated with the dnyd rail
len fern by a CLN reporter lifter the trIal
Mr fen ale thnt he considered the
day a satisfactory one on thn whole for n teat of
Defenders ability as compared nlth Vigilant 1
for although a brush between tire two boats In
a Itn wind and heavy sea would bo extremely
Interesting he full perfect confidence Hint the
now boat could do relatively IU nell as N Iglluut

pulling out the float Mr Isolln built ho ell
eldereu that Vigilant was belted on every point
except running free under spinnakers On this
point be considered that Vigilant i showed up
about a well as Defender A good test in this
linn was not mad huwexer on account of the
Defenders trouble with her
lefenderl spinnaker

Information was gained from Mr Iselln re
garding the final brush between Defender and I
Vlcllant outside Point Judith which could nut
bu accurately observed from the nteamers that
followed the racers but which wan ono of tie

Tire lire Isnlt rlbutcd by Capt Ueluncle to spon

there was suino connection between the fire and

to open tire hunker Hu carried a naked light
ansi as he threw back tho hatch rover n great
volume of gas rushed out and burst Into Dame
with a roar that was heard all over the ship
Jrau ole was instantly killed
The theory of those who connect tho explosion
with tine fire Is that a e11rk got Into tho cargo
compartment amlcUlilps on line starboard side
I feet wide amid 8 1 feet long and that the lIre
nmouldorcd tbcro for two days In a lot of hides

Yesterday was another eventful day In the

on Saturday afternoon that killed one wounded
forty demolished fifteen houses and partially
wrecked thirty more was followed by the largest
crowd sightseers that over collected In time
town limits here were probably 100000 moro
people there than were over there before at one
time They came chiefly from Brooklyn and
New York The rapid transit rood carried IU
full capacity tire Kings county elevated road
which ends half a tulle from the wreck
carried thousands and hundreds came In car
riages and wagons of all descriptions There
were grocery wagons express wagons trucks
and hay wagons each loaded to tho brim The
homeless people of Woodlmven were mostly on
exhibition at the ruins The charitable people
were begging for money aid for the homeless
The saloons that uero not wrecked were open
Some of those that were wrecked mad beer on
tap and thai crowd drank as fast as the spigot
could be put In the kegs Nobody went thirsty
Altogether It was a great day In the town
The villagers set to work early In the morning
to clear a ny the wreckage repair what darn
age was repairable People who hud merely
lost the roof of a house or an outhouse or a
fence went around looking for thorn There
were four roofs In Sir Allgalers back yard In
Shaw street The biggest one had been carried
four blocks and planted there It was Identified
