The Preliminary Skirmish.
Columbus, O., Aug. 20. The prelim
inary meetings of the Democratic state
convention resulted in favt? of Mayor
Tom Is. Johnson, of Cleveland, in Ids
contest with John I.. Zimmerman, of
Kpriugliold, for the gtibernatorial nom
ination. Mayor Johnson had uncon
tested, control of the Democratic state
convention last year at Sandusky, and
the committee se lected then, in its call
for this convention, provided that the
credentials from all the counties wire
to be first submitted to the state cen
Johnson la Complete Control.
Pursuant to this new requirement
the state, central committee that was
selected at Sanducky last year met and
passed upon the contest this time that
affect 145 of the i'AM) delegates, decid
ing in favor of the Johnsou men, who
thus had the. odds in their favor when
the delegates met by congressional d'.s
tricts to select members of the com
mittees on credentials, resolutions, etc.
The Jotansoimmcn secured most of the
members of the new state central com
mittee, widen holds over to call the
state convention next year, when dele

The state central committee, in con
sidering the contests from counties- in
alphabetical order, first decided to te
port to the committee on credentials
by vive voce vote that there was no
contest from Cuyahoga county (Cleve
landi, and then on a demand for a
roll call it was decided by a vote of
34 to 7 that there was a contest from
Hamilton county (Cincinnati). The re
sult of this action was that the First
and Second districts at Cincinnati,
which are anti-Johnson, were prevent

Luke K. Wright to Govern Philip,
pines When Taft Is Secre
tary of War.
Oys ter I ay, X. Y.. Aug. 2(5. The
co:-respo'jd;-i:co relative to the resigna
tion of Secretary Pout is published,
and confirms statements heretofore
made that the secretary will have of
fice somo tune after Jan. 1 next. The
resident has made the statement that
he tendered the position to Judge Taft
-ome months ago. and it was i:r
ranged that h should succeed Knot.
The president also states that I.uke K.
Wright, new vh e governor of the Phil
ippines, will succeed Taft as governor-
The correspondence shows that Hoot
wrote the president recently referring
to the fact that the president had as
sented to the sufliciem-y of Hoot's rea
sons for retiriv.g. and stating that in
Hcot's opinion his resignation should
be in the president's hands so that he
could scad to the senate the name of
his successor in November or Decem
lcr: he therefore tenders his resigna
tion, with many expressions of good
will ami regard for the president.
Hoosevelt's reply, while accepting the
resignation, begins: "It is hard, hi

tion," and declares the ersonal loss Is

districts, at Cleveland, were enabled
to take part.
Another Point for Jolinaon.
The state central committee referred
the contests in Oallia, Miami, Hoss
and Seneca ountles to the committee
on credentials without recommenda
tion. These counties are in different
congressional districts, and those dis
tricts proceeded to select menders of
the committees without the contested
counties taking part, the result being
thus favorable to . the Johnson men.
It Is seldom that such vigorous pro
testing is heard as that of the Zimmer
man men, but the Johnson men reply
that no quarter could be expected aft
er such a right as has been waged the
p:'-t few days. The Zimmerman men
carried the figbt Into the meetings of
all the committees and insist that they
w ill carry it Into the convention.
Settled Pretty Much Kverythlngr.
The result of the district meetings
settled almost everything except the
senatorial Indorsement which Is still
badly mixed. The Johnson men claim
to have carried seventeen of the twenty-one
districts and by the election of
. C. Philbrlck, in the Twelfth dis
trict, the new state central committee
stands tlghteen to three.

H. Weber, of the state central com

The temporary" organization was made
permanent and the. convention at once
proceeded to nominations. Judge John
J. Sullivan, present chief Justice of

notify the Democratic state conven
tion of this nomination, the fusionlsts

ABOUT THAT RACE
Shamrock III, While Poorly
Handled, Was Still Out
classed. BEATEN ON EVEET SAILING POINT
She Even Loses Nineteen Seconds by
Making a Blunder at the
New York, Aug. 2d. The second
race for the America's cup has been
sailed and the Reliance Is again win
ner. When the yachts reached the
starting line shortly after 10 a. m. the
wind was south-southeast and blowing
about four knots not enough to send
them over the course within the time
limit, but there were indications that
there would be enough of it later. The
preparatory signal was tired at IQAo,
the warning gun at 10:"."i and the start
ing gun at 11. The wind that time
was due south and had begun to fresh
en. In the preliminary jockeying Cap
tain Uarr, of the Reliance, got the
windward position, blanketing the
Shamrock III, and clung to it through
various manoeuvers until the warning
gun had been tired, when Captain
Wringe had got clear of the Reliance.
Shamrock Handicap llertelf.
At the sound of the gun Shamrock
III bore off to leeward and away- from
the Reliance, while Captain Parr
tacked under the stern of the Navi
gator as the starting gun was tired
and crossed the line only thirty-six
seconds behind the gun. The Sham
rock 111 kept away from the line al
most until the handicap guiu, then
tacked and crossed it handicapped by
nineteen seconds, for which no allow
ance was made to her. 'Hie nineteen
seconds was dead loss.
Run for the Final Mark.
Once fairly away Captain WrLnge, of
Shamrock III, resumed his tactics of
the previous race, gave his loat a good
rap full, and. mailed through the Re
liance's lee and got under her lee bow,
while Captain Uarr pinched the lte
llanco close into the wind. At noon
the wind bud increased to ten knots
and hauled about a point to westwaid,
80 that both yachts could lay a straight
course to the turning murk cot more
than two miles distant- Roth boats
made the turn of the lirst mark as fol

SUAMItOCK WAS OFFICIALLY AHEAD
But Her Lead Waa KoockrA Out In the
Lest Two Legs.
Though the Reliance had a lead of
three uduutes and fifteen seconds she
titill lacked six seconds of making up
the time allowance and the difference
of one minute and twenty-four seconds
at the start. Officially the Shamrock
was still six seconds ahead of the slip
pery Yankee craft. Roth captains broke
out balloon jib topsails when they
squared for the second turn. The wind
was so far aft that they quickly de
cided that instead of being a broad
reach, as Intended, the course to the
turn was a run. Spinnaker looius wire
guyed out and the great sails added to
the tall reach of canvas.
They ran that way for half an hour,
when the Reliance smothered her spin
naker, set her staysail and headed for
the mark. They made the second turn
as follows: Reliance. 1:17:."0; Sham
rock III, 1:21:4.". The Reliance was
leading by three minutes, tifty-live Sic

the run across from the first to the

margin to her credit of thirty-four sec
onds. The Reliance whirled about the mark.
gilcd over, trimmed in her sheets and
romped away on a close reach towards
Sandy Hook lightship and the finish
line. She was three miles away before
the. Shamrock rounded the mark. As
tlhewind softened the Reliance first set
a baby jib topsail width the Shamrock
had been carrying since turning the
second mark, and then exchanged it
for a big reaching jib topsail in which
the Shamrock promptly followed suit.
The two yachts held llheir relative
positions for about a mile. When the
Reliance was a quarter of a mile from
the finish line the wind died away con
siderably, but the Shamrock III came
booming along carrying a splendid
breeze and fast overhauling the leader.
It looked as though the Rritis'h boat
was going to get within her time limit,
but the llnlsh line was too close and
the Reliance slipped across It with one
minute and nineteen seconds to spare.
The Shamrock III finished in a soften
ing wind, and both boats were taken
in tow to Sandy Hook.
