GREAT DAT FOR AMERICAN
The G'alatea Badly Beatea After an
Exciting Race The Race
Niw York, September 7. This has
been the greatest yach'ing day that
New York bas ever eten, and another
day of glory for Boston for her latest
and piettiest product of naval archi
tecture. The sloop yacht Mayflower
nas won the nrst race ot tbe interna
tional aeries against a poweful an
tagonist, the British cutter Galmea.
With a steady whole sill bieeze from
tbe southward, permitting eacu to
c rry all their tight sails the Galatea
was beaten Vim. 4i)r. acuai time,
or 12m. 2s. corrected t me, tbe May
flower having given 38 feconds t'tiie
eIloance, according to ths New York
Yacht Club ru'es, under which tbe
race a'e sailed. Tbe contest wrs
eminently fair for both yachts, loss-
mucn as nan tne course sailed gave
almost all windward woik, while the
other ha'f was with free
sheets. Although the cutter
was defeated she has shown
hcrse'f to be a faster yacht then the
Generta in a light bratze and on that
may be verv hard to dtfnat in a s'rox g
breiz", and a seaway. I, hts been a
day of excitement, euch as is seldom
seen in Mew York. From dawn to
dark, ftfl oat or astor. in hotel, club

leading topic of cenversation. By 10
