New York. -Sept. 12. Tlie international
race between Defender and Valkyrie for
the America's cup is ended. On tlie whole
It lias been an extraordinary series, nnd
while tlio result is satisfactory to the
American people, two at least of tlie
contests tliat went to make up the match
Defender won in a clean raceon Saturday;
on Tuesday last slio crossed the line behind
tlie English boat, but was awarded the
race on a foul; to-day she had a wnlkov cr.
And to-day's occurrence was all the more
unfortunate, not only because a great crowd
had gathered to witness the struggle,
but becauso the weather conditions were
such as to lead many to sujrase that of
all days, ValLyrie would be in her cluncnt.
HADE IT THREE STRAIGHT.
Lord Dunraven had said last night, and
he said It most emphatically, that lie would
withdraw his boat on the morrow, If an
absolute- clear course were not provided.
lie claimed that during the previous race
his boat bad been greatly interfered witli
and as everything depended upon the out
come of the third of the series, he adhered
to that decision so closely that Valkyrie
merely crossed the starting line and then
retired from the contest.
Defender who was well in advance when
the starting gun was fired, continued on
her Journey and went over her course well
within the time limit.

London, Sept. 12. Iteuter'sNewsAgency
this evening tent a request by cable to the
Earl of Dunraven for a statement of the
reasons for bis notion in withdrawing
from the tliird race for the America's
cup to-day The following reply lias been
received from New York:
"Owing to the excessive crowding by
steamers at the first two races, and es
pecially at the start of and on the last ten
miles of :be second race, I notified the cup
committee on the 10th instant, requesting
that the letter be not opened until after a
decision bad been rendered with regard
to the foul at the Etart of the second race,
that owing to the danger of a eerious acci
dent by collision with IhecxcursionMeamers
tnd othcra ise, and owing to the absolute
absurdity of carrying on races under such
conditions I should decline to start un
less some arrangement 'were made to race
in clear water.
"I requested a postponement of to-day's
race with a view of arriving at such an

"I then notified them that I should
be ot Sandy Hook lightship this morning
for the purpose of giving Defender a start.
NEVER INTENDED TO RACE.
New York, Sept. 12. After the race
Lord Dunraven sought the seclusion of
his stateroom on the City of Bridgeport.
He .refused to talk. After reaching Bay
Ridge Arthur Glennlc, acting as spokes
man for his lordship, said:
"It was not our intention to race to-day.
Lord Dunraven handed a sealed letter to
llr. A. Cass Canfield, secretary of the
America's Cup committee yesttrday. It
waB not to be ojiened until after the decision
on the Defender's protest, In order that the
decision of the regatta committee might not
be influenced by It."
ADMITS DEFENDER'S SUPERIORITY.
"I am quite satisfied that I cannot, off
New York, sail a race for the America's
cup under satisfactory conditions. The
situation is this: "1 don't believe that I
nave a superior boat. I do not believe
that I should bo subjected to an Insult from
the regatta committee of any yacht club
or from the representative of any challenge
lng syndicate. It was not my way; I was
rorced to it.
"Tliere is no difference of opinion aboard
our boat. It Is simply a matter of refusal
to sail under existing conditions an drules.
"I know thaT I cannot get a show. I
awllaff jiut up his helm or thought that I
aw it. rtiavo no criticism to make upon
Watson. Ho turned out a good boat.
Bhe crossed the Atlantic ocean, and If she
could not win it Is not tlio fault of Watson.
Watson is not responsible, and, of course,
you knowlt from my actions."
Soon after the committee went into
session tills afternoon, the following letter
was posted on tlie bulletin ooard:
New York, Bcpt. 12, IbfiG. TheAmerican
cup committee receiv ed at 8 a.m. to-day the
following from the Ea riot Dunraven.
43rifthave, Sept. 11,11 30p.m
Dear Mr. Cnnfitld I have Just received
your letter. I regret that being engaged at
the time you and Mr.Busk were kind enough
to call at the Waldorf, I could not then ghe
a. decided answer to the propositions made
In your short conversation. 1 have since
considered the matter carefully.
lour proposition to postpone the start
until we but e sufficient room meets only one
out of more serious difficulties men
i . - jw--pe
tioned in my letter of the 10th, and If no
solution can be found to these difficulties,
I must adhere to my decision as expressed
In that letter. I nra fully convinced that
the committee have done, and would do
to morrow, all In their power to keep a
clear course, but under existing circum
stances, they are powerless.
MORE OF EGO.
As I told you I would sail if the commit
tee would take it upon themselves to
decide the race to-morrow void if, in
their Judgment, either vessel were Inter
fered with by steamers and tugboats.
"1 regret that ou arc unable to agree to
'that. I regret alto that the race fixed
for tomorrow could not be post
poned In order to alve the coinmltt.e ample
time to consider my former letter; and I
am sorry my letter was not delivered
to you sooner.
"As I explained to you, I was under
the Impression that the committee heard
the protest, and pending a decision I did
not think it right to place the letter In
their hands. When I learned this morning
that the cup committee had nothing to do
with the protest I requested Mr. Kersey,
to Tbum I had intrusted the letter, to
hand It to you.
In else you do not receive this to-night .
I shall take Valkyrie to Sandy Hook light
ship to-morrow morning and will cross the
line to give Defender a start.
I enclose copy ot a letter I have written
Mr. Iselln and addressed to the N. 1. Y. C.
Yours, very trulv, DUNRAVEN.
THE COMMITTEE'S REPLY.
All the propositions of the above letter
were discussed between Lord Dunraven and
the members of the committee at 9;. m.
yesterday. The rcplj to these conditions
was as follows:
1. That it in as Impossible nt so short
a notice to "postpone the race fixed for
to-day, September 12.
2. That the races would not be started
until a clear space for maneuvering was
3. That the committee could not assume
the responslbillt) of agreeing to declare
the race V id if cither vessel suffered
from the accompanying steamers.
The committee regret that they were un
able to send an answer this morning.
As, however, thcirreply would have been
the same as that conveyed verbally last
night, the fact of no answer having been
made Is unimportant.

For the Committee.

Honolulu, Sept. 5. Forty-one cases of

to stamp it out. No island steamers are
allowed to leave port without first remain

Tho cholera, according to tlie general
theory, was brought to Honolulu by tlie
steamer Belgic, which arrived on the 9lh
ot August with C3C Chinese immigrants on
board. The vessel had a clean bill of health,
but following the custom, the Chinese were
placed In quarantine.
FIRST DEATHS REPORTED.
On the 18th of August it was learned that
three of the Immigrants had died, two
from bowel complaint and the others from
exhaustion. As soon as it was publicly
announced that a death liad occurred at the
quarantine station people became alarmed
anddcla red that Asiaticcholera had broken
out among the Chinese Immigrants.
Physicians made a careful examination
of the first cases anddeclared thatit was not
cholera. Mori cases broke out soon, how
ever, and tills intensified the alarm. By
tills time the disease was declared to be
genuine Asiatic cholera.
It was decideel to Inaugurate a system
of house-to house inspection and other
precautionary measures were adopted to

sailors, the scourge has attacked only
natives, tba chief difficulty in dealing
with the cholera being tlie ignorance and
unclean habits of tho natives and Chinese.
