M Mr - It directs one of Its broadsides against the

'iw I h finitely more flagrant here than In tho mother

LAHCUXOM'S MO RACE WBEK.
Over Fifty Yachtlne Events to lie Decided,
llrElanlns: with Next Mnfurdn).
This week, commencing on Saturday, the
Larchmont Yacht Club of Larchmont. N. Y
will hold what It calls a race week. It is mine
what on the lines of tbe famous Cones week In
England, and If the hopes of Its members are
realized It will be a huge success. The club
proposes to hold a continuous series of races
from Saturday, July 18, up to and Including
Saturday, July 25. This Is a new and novel
Idea on this side of the Atlantic, and while the
Yacht Racing Union, which Is composed of
all the clubs In the Sound except the
Larch monts, have held n similar rac
ing circuit for the past two years, no one
club has ever nttempted such n thing before.
Whilo a great many think Hint the Larchmnnts
will find it n difficult matter to keep the achts
men together racing continuously for a week,
tho majority think the affair will lie a great suc
cess. In the first place, the club has an ef.clcnt
Krgnlta Committee In Messrs. Lorejny, Ha
roney, and Wlntrlngham, who thoroughly un.
dcrstand their business, while tbe club house,
under Augurtin Munroe's supervision and Su
perintendent Tliden's charge. Is the best-managed
club bouse In tbe countrr.
Notoulv thl, but the programme has been
arranged with greut 'are, and almost every In-tere-t

Peculiarity of m Man Who Uvea at un Up
town Hotel and Ooii to Ilea I.nts,
One of the " regulars" nt an op-town hotel Is
an old man who owns n large building whloh hs
can see from the windows of his hotel room, and
devotes much of his tlmo to keeping tho tran
soms In his hall opened.
"No man should sleep In a hotel room with tbe
transom closed," he says, and not content with
taking care of the ventilation of his own room,
be f lequently Insists on enforcing his advice on
others. He Is about 80 years old, and goes to
bed late and gets up early. If on bis way to his
room at night be spies n closed transom he will
Invariably stop before the door, and, knocking
with his cane, say:
"Hello you. In there, your transom Is closed.
Don't you know bettor than to go to sleep with
your transom closed? Hello I Hello I Hello I
(Jet up and open your transom."
Sometimes the sleeping man awakes, nnd
thinking that tbe warning comes from n ball
man, opens the transom. If the guest doesn't
da so, the old man, nfter ssveral knocks, will
reach up and open the transom with n Jab of bis
Hegulsr guests at the Gllsey have known him
for many years, nnd tbey nlways comply with
bis advice on the subject of transoms. Some
times strangers are at a loss to understand him,

international trophy for
small yachts. The races will be sailed on tho i
Bound, off Centre Island, Orster Hay, the um-
mer home of the Seawanhaka Club. The events i
are attracting a great deal of interest amonitilev- I
otefs of tbe spurt In both the United btates
and Canada. Kach of the contostants ivlll he

(teorgu II. Duggan. Hoth boats are representa
tive ones, as far as can be Judged from their
trials, the Canadian being selected after Imviug
met seven competitors, while El Helrle was
chosen from among fifteen yachts designed by
the foremost artists In naval architecture of
small boats In the country,
Hy agreement betneen tbe challenger, de
fender, and Hiicu Committee of the rea anhaka
Corlntbtan Yacht Clut), composed of Messrs.
Cromwell. Wetmore, Korr, Dresser, and Sher
man, the number of races hits been limited to
five, and to the winner of three of them, not nec
essarily consecutive, will Dn awarded the cup.
The name of tbe winning yacht and her owner
will be engraved on one of the panels of the
cup, while a memorial trophy will bo pre.
sentnl to the winning ) acht. ,
The contests will continue oach day for a
week until one of the little fellows captures the
three winning races. The "outside" course in
the Sound at the entrance to Oyster Day will be
the scene of llie struggle, tbe starting point
being an imaginary line between the black spar
buoy that marks the channel off Centre Island
and tbe rommlttott steamer Oiinderberg Tho
course will he six nautical mllas long, and will
be sailed oter twice. It nlll he triangular 111
shape, two miles to a leg. Tho start will bo the
popular one-gun start, with a live minutes pru.
naratnrv signal, and will be as near noon as
practicable. I'nlois a rare Is cnnrluiled nltliin
a time limit of five hours. It will bo ordered to
be rcsalled, and In thu event of any postpone
ment, suoli a race will be sailed. If possible, un
the succeeding day.
The Canadian yacht arrived at Oyster Day on
last Monday, and the work of rigging her was
begun early the following morning, nfter whleh,
as already told tn The HUN. she had her initial
sail in American waters. That she would pi ore
tn be a dangerous rival In light airs was recog
nized at once, Mr. Du jean's idea being that tbe
grevalllng breezes during July on 1ing Island
ound would be light, und his yacht was de
signed accordingly. She Is owned Jointly by
Commodore James Hoss and Measurer i 1.
Shearwood, both of tbe Hoyal fat, Lawrence
Yacht Club. , . .
Mr. Duggan since his appearance here has
shown marked ability as a sailor of small boats,
and la thoroughly at home at the stick of tho
Olencalrn, Mr. Suearwood also helug an expe
rienced yaohtsraan makes a combination that
may be relied upon to get every foot of speed
out of the symmetrical challenger that Is possl.
hie. Her onlclal measurements areas follows;
Length over all. '.'8 feet U inches; length
on water line. IS feet 0 Inches; beam, 0 feet 3
Inches; draught, with board up. 6h Inches;
with board down, 0 feet. Her sail area Is U00
square feet. Mr. IJuggan. In comparing her to
the Canadian half-raters that she hud met. suij
frankly that sne v, as relatively belter In light
weather, but bad hardly been tried out In a
heavy blow aa set, so she was somewhat of an
nnknown quantity under those conditions.
Tbe El Itelrle was designed by her young sail
log master, O. H. Crane, and la the second boat
that bo has evolved, tbo first being a cruiser
about the same sire, which ho anil his brother
have sailed around Ho. ton Harbor Mr. Crane
Is a graduate of Htirurd I'nlMTiity. and since

carried from stem to transom tn an eay sym
metrical cure. She hi little uerhang aft,
but tbe forward otcrhang extends fully six feet
In smooth water.
She Is fitted with a manganese bronze bal
anced rudder, shaped like a spade, und adag
fler board of the s.imo material, which Is hung
n a manner ttiat when the hoard Is up it ex
tends out a distance of about the Incite, thus
giving to her, iinictlcnlii, a keel for nbiutslx
