Hha Yollrte Cross the Starting Line Almost To
getherThe American Craft First to Turn
the Stakeboat, and Is Ahead by & Mile and
a Half Experts Say She Is a Sure Winner.
SAXDY HOOK, X J., Oct 1 fi. Shortly after 2 o'clock the Co
lumbia turned tlie stakeboat and the Cup defender started on her
dash for home. The American boat is now sailing with the wind
and the speed she is making has been sufficient to leave the tug
As the run home is with the wind, the time of the last half
will, experts say, be made well -within the time limit.
The Columbia was at least one and one-half miles in theJead
at 3 o'clock, and today's race will, it is predicted, be won by the
American yacht The run to the outer stake was a beat to wind
ward and the fifteen miles were made in about three hours.
The Shamrock rounded the stakeboat about nine minutes
later than her rival.
NEW YORK. Oct. 15. Hopes for a yacht
race today were nearly abandoned in the
early hours of the forenoon. The weather
was in a most aggravating mood. There
was little wind and a dense fog, hut at 9
o'clock a breeze began to spring up and
hope then reasserting -Itself, the sailors
on the rival boats began to bestir them
selves. The wind was becoming nearly
vigorous and the race committee, after a
conference, decided to take the yachts out
to the scretch and let the weather condi
tion, after their arrival there, decide about
the. race. Consequently they were soon
under way for the Sandy Hook Lightship,
to which they have made so many futile
journeys. They went out under tow with
bare poles, the Columbia first. The usual
escort of tugs accompanied them, and al
though a wind was blowing that would
have filled their sails and slanted their
masts to the leeward, neither boat lifted
a sail, as they got out to the bar before the
breeze reached them without obstruction.
Their sails were housed, not to be unfurled,
for a useless dampening unless the day im
proved so that there was a good prospect
of a brush.
At 11 o'clock both yachts hoisted sails
preparatory for the race, and as the wind
was blowing a seven knot breeze the
prospects for getting over the line were
much more promising.
The preparatory signal was displayed
from the judges boat at 10:43 o'clock.
When the course signals were not indicat
ing that the course -would be to east, the
yachts were holdiing on to their tow lines
northwest of the lightship. Only one
yacht had arrived on the scene, and one
steamboat, the Mommouth. The mark
boat started off east logging the course.
The wind was east about eight miles and
increasing, and the mist was fainter.
The Shamrock cast off her tow line at
10:40 o'clock and stood off to the north
under jib mainsail and club topsail. The
Columbia followed suit three minutes lat
er, also standing north. The Shamrock
wont about to the southeast, heading up in
the wind a short time; then the Columbia
wont about on the port tack and both
yachts at 10:45 o'clock, at the time the pre
paratory signal was fired, stood for the rear
of the line with the Columbia in the wind
ward position. The Columbia, setting the
forostaysail, wont to windward of the
lightship, while the Shamrock went to the
leeward of the same mark. Thus the Co
lumbia maintained a windward position
cast of the line instead of passing to the
windward. The Shamrock headed toward
the stern of the lightship, but west of the
line with jib mainsail and club topsail set.
The Columbia, which was on a broad
leach, luffed up in the wind and stood to
the eastward, while the Shamrock opened
out a free course south of the lightship,
followed the Columbia, southeast, but in
a leeward position.
They crossed the line so nearly together
that the official time taken was the same
for both, 11:01:43. Unofficial reports say
the Shamrock was three seconds in the
At 11:12 both yachts footing passed out
of sight of land. Neither boat at this time
seemed to have any advantage.

SANDY HOOK LIGHTSHIP, N. J., Oct.
1C. The Columbia was leading by a quar
ter of a mile at 11:30. She had the wind
ward position and was outpointing the
Shamrock. It looked as if the Columbia
would have a good lead at the turn. Her
windward work -was manifestly superior.
The wind was from ten to twelre miles an
hour and the sea choppy.
It was 11:15 when the Columbia took the
lead. At 11:35 the Shamrock then went to
the port tack and to the delight of the
'American boat's supporters the Columbia,
spinning around like a whirling deer, tack
ed across her rival's bows. On this tack,
the Shamrock, as usual, did better work
Jn comparison. The Columbia had picked
tip her heels in gallant fashion, however,
and shot along with the speed that gave

and not a single excursion craft to wind
ward. Every sail was drawing like a warp
ed pine board, and every sheet was taut.
The Columbia's fine showing Increased the
jubilation in the fleet as the Yankee single
sticker was proving herself a smarter boat
in a brisk freshening breeze. She was out
pointing and outfooting the English boat
and when the yachts went to the starboard
tack at 11:35 she was a quarter of a mile
to the lead and an eighth of a mile to the
At 1 p. m. the yachts were about five
miles from the stake boat. The Columbia
was still In the lead.
Hogarth might have worked through the
Columbia's lee, but for the apparent superi
ority of the Cup defender in pointing into
the wind. Every now and then a puff of
wind would knock the challenger off her
course, and at no time did the Shamrock
work within a quarter of a point of the
Hogarth saw that the Shamrock was a
beaten boat unless the wind failed, and
he brushed up his wits for some sharp
work. He went into stays at 11:45 o'clock,
and before his sails had filled Barr had
done the same. Hogarth went back to
the old tack without having filled, having
trapped Barr neatly but to little advan
tage. The Shamrock went on the port tack at
11:46 and Barr immediately split tacks.
When the American boat crossed the Sham
rock's bows, an eighth of a mile in the
lead it could be seen that Barr was hold
ing the Shamrock safe. For ten minutes
1 these tactics continued, and on every
splitting of tacks Barr bettered the Co
It was sharp work in which the cup
defender carried off all the honors, and,
although the wind had less weight than
at the start the crack of America's sin
gle stickers busily put more water be
tween the graceful sweep of her counter
and the English boat's blunt bows. "When
they came down to straight sailing at 11:55
on the starboard tack the Columbia was
nearer to the outer mark by three quar
ters of a mile.
The Columbia was sailing magnificently,
and, in fact, under like conditions, had
never performed better. The wind fresh
ened to its original strength a few minutea
after 12 o'clock and the Columbia took a
fresh grip upon it The superiority of the
Cup defender was manifested anew when
the challenger slid off the wind and thereby
The Columbia was the first to leave the
tack and she went to port at 12:11 with a
generous lead. A minute later the Sham
rock went in stays, both racers standing
to the southeast. They sped along with
their lee rails just clear of the water and
the white-clad crews massed to windward
on the yellow decks.
At times the sun broke through a rift
in tho clouds, and the bright topsails and
bronze underbodifcs shone like pools of
oil. The patrol fleet was doing yeoman
service In keeping the course clear, and
the excursion brats were so well behaved
that Captain Evans had time to do hom
age to tlie Columbia in a war dance on
the Manning's bridge. Half way down the
turn, at 12:20 o'clock, tho Columbia had
a lead of three-quarters of a mile.
The Shamrock went to the starboard
tack at 12:25, and the baby jib was hauled
in. Hogarth had decided that the small
triangle had been the little devil that was
pulling his charge off to leeward, but when
the Columbia came about in less than a
minute, Barr was satisfied to keep his baby

Despatches from Cape Town and Pieter
marltzburg concur in the statement that
there has been fighting at Spytxtontein, ten
miles south of Kimbcrley.
A despatch to Router's Telegraph Agen
cy from the Glencoo camp of the British
troops, dated 7:40 p. m., Sunday, says that
the Boers have passed Ingagane, ten miles
south of Newcastle, marching in the south
A despatch to tho "Chronicle," from
Cape Town, dated 9:15, Sunday night, says
that it is reported there that fighting is
going on at Kimberley. The town Is de
fended by 3,000 men. The attacking force
consists of the same number. This report
is not confirmed.
There was an enthusiastic meeting of
members of the stock exchange at the
Guildhall this afternoon to approve the
government's policy in South Africa. Four
hundred brokers marched to the hall carry

The meeting was opened with the singing
of the national anthem.
A resolution was proposed by Alderman
Sir Reginald Hanson, seconded by John
Lubbock, and supported by Samuel Stew

the responsibility for it rested on tho

ed. CAPE TOWN, Oct. 16. It is reported
that the Boers are Investing Aliwal North,
which is in the Cape Colony near the bor
der of the Orange Free State. There are
ominous signs that the Dutch in the Cape
Colony will develop an anti-British feeling
on the first reverse sustained by theT3ng
iish. The Boers of tho Orange Free State are
in complete possession of tni railway from
Orange River to Kimberley..
Contrary to reports the Boers showed
every courtesy to Mr. Conyngham Greene,
the British consul, on his journey from
Pretoria. Six of President Kruger's body
guard escorted him to the Transvaal bor
der. The burghers of the Orange Free
State were equally courteous.
DUNDEE, Natal,. Oct. 16. A Boer com
mand of 2,000, with sixteen field guns, ar
rived at Dannhauser, eighteen miles north
east of Dundee, yesterday. It is supposed
that they intended to surround the Dundeo
camp and cut it off from communication
with Ladysmith. The hilly character of
the country favors this plan.
BIRMINGHAM, Oct. 16. The "Post"
says there is excellent authority for the
statement that government bonds given by
Dr. Leyd, the European representative of
the Transvaal Government, and his agents
for supplies purchased from continental
firms have been dishonored. The sup
plies were purchased for the South African
republic, and payment is to be pressed.
It is not likely, however, that the money
will be forthcoming. It is strongly ru
mored that Dr. Leyd's secret service funds
have given out.
MANCHESTER, Oct. 16. The "Guar

months. He discredited the notion that
the Boers have deteriorated as marksmen.

Dysentery Epidemic In Japan.
TACOMA, Wash., Oct. 15. A terrible epi
demic of dysentery is- sweeping over Japan,
with fatal results. Official statistics show
that out of 50,000 persons attacked, nearly
12.CO0, have died this year upHo September
14. Authorities estimate that, 100,000 cases
will be recorded by the end of October. Dys
entery was unknown in Japan until 1880.
when it was brought by a ship from abroad.
That year It killed 1,300 people. Thereafter
it spread steadfastly until In. 1893, 41,000
persons perished. Out of 1,000,000 cases re
corded from 1880 to the end of 1898, 247,000
proved fatal. Dr. Kitosa has discovered a
method of inoculation with .which he hopes
to check the ravages of the disease.

"I believe, my fellow-citizens, that this
territory came to us in the Providence of
God. We did not seek It. It is ours with
all the responsibilities that belong to it.
And as a great, brave nation we mean to

of the Union, responded promptly to the

"My Fellow-citizens: I am very glad
to meet the people of Cedar Falls and the

united in hearts and sentiments and pur
pose and in love of country, as we have
never been before. Sectionalism has dis
appeared. Old prejudices arc but a mem
ory, the orator of hate like the orator of
despair has no hearing in any part of
our beloved country. We are stronger and
more united than we have ever been be

of the North have been fighting for the
same flag, and shedding their blood to

loyalty to country and are marching side by
side in the pathway of our destiny and in
the mission- of liberty and humanity.
"My fellow-citizens, the cause of hu
manity has been triumphant and that cause
committed to our hands will not suffer.
Wherever we have raised our flag we have
raised it not for territorial aggrandize

raised it for civilization and humanity."

HAIDS BY CHINESE PIRATES.
A Captured Actor Hoscued by n "War
SAN FRANCISCO. Cal.. Oct, 1G Ac
cording to Canton advices received here
by steamer, piracy in Kwangh-Tung pro
vince has reached alarming proportions.
At Muhow-Kong village, near Hoehin there
is a big nest of pirates whose numbers are
swelled by desperate lepers. These levy
blackmail on the junkers going to and
coming from Canton. Pirates have ar
ranged a regular schedule which must be
paid or the cargoes and boats are told.
At Mong-Chow are 4,000 robbers who are
members of the dreaded Iraid Society. They
recently held up two rich boats. One paid
?S0O blackmail, but the other refused. The
rice was seized and sold on the open mar
ket. Near the same place a cargo of hard
wood, valued at $7,000 was recently seized
and twenty men on the ship slaughtered.
The same gang also stole valuable silk
from two passenger steamers. They swarm
ed over the vessel and intimidated the
crew and passengers.
They also abducted a famous actor named
Za Wongso, and held him for ransom at
Ping Shan. As the actor receives a salary
of $15,000 a year, they demanded a large
ransom, but Za was rescued by a Chinese

THE CASE OF CARTER.
Jndgc Lncomtie Dciiiex That lie Has
Reached a. Decision.
NEW YORK, Oct. 16. The report that
Judge Lacornbc of the circuit court of the
district will dismiss the habeas corpus
proceedings instituted in behalf of Oberlin
M. Carter, formerly a captain in tie Engi
neer Corps, is denied. Judge Lacomte, it
was said, would take the broad ground that
a civic court has no jurisdiction over a
military court, and that it cannot evade
the province of such a tribunal or over
turn its findings or decrees.
When seen last night Judge Lacombe
said: "The person who started the report
seems to know more about what I am go
ing to do than I do myself. The case has
not yet been decided in my mind, the
briefs not being yet all submitted. You
may say that the report Is unworthy and
its statement inaccurate."

General Marrlam's despatch s very
brief, and siraply states that twelve of the
soldiers attacked and seriously beat four
peaceful Indians, and that there is much
tad feeling on the part of the Indians.
Press despatches say that on Friday
night a number of the soldiers disguised
themselves as Indians, and, stealing on a
band of Apaches, attacked them with club3
and bayonets, and that a pitched battle
followed. The Indians, it is said, were so
badly beaten that four of them have died,
and the rest fled to the mountains. The
trouble is said to been caused by the sol
Jiers attempting to abduct two Apacho
women. The Indians In retaliation at
tacked a soldier and maltreated him.
The Indians dead are to be buried today,
and it Is feared the survtvorsa may attack;
the soldiers, and a general uprising of the
redskins may follow. The situation is said,
to be very grave, and a part of the Ninth
Cavalry has been ordered to San Carlos.
