YACHTS STRUCK BOTTOM It 1 . 1 . 1 Y. M1 Ol.l MIIU DKLA1EU IV Hl) MM U. 1. outfit ntlon'a Topmatt Blown Off Upton's up hallenarer Also Met with an Accident. NEWPORT. R. L. July 22.-The last run of the New York Yacht Club cruise back from Vineyard Haven to-day was almost as disappointing hs that of yesterday, at lesst so far as the ninety-footers were con cerned. Within a mile of the start the Re liance and the Columbia struck bottom on the eastern end of the middle ground in Vineyard sound, and only the quick turn of the wheel saved the Constitution. Reliance came off within two minutes, while Colum- bla held on to the shoal by a strong tide, tuck there? for over an hour, being finally assisted off apparently uninjured but. of course, out of the race. The other two boats kept on but on getting out beyond Gay Head a stiff puff of wind snapped the top mast of the Constitution. After the wreck had been cleared away she proceeded and crossed the finish line nearly three-quarters on an hour after the Reliance. The cruise ends with two wins each to the credit of both Reliance and Constitution. A diver examined the fin of the Reliance after her arrival in port but could discover do damage, so that she will probably be in th race to-morrow. The Constitution pro cured a new topmast this afternoon and wii! also start. SAILED l 1)1 M; FOG. Cap Challenger's aff Broken in Yea I terday's Trial Race. ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS. N. J.. July 22. Sir Thomas Lipton watched anxiously from the deck of the Erin to-day while for an hour his cup challenger was temporarily lost to his view behind a blank wall of blinding fog. When the beautiful yacht came limping out of the fog with her gaff broken Sir Thomas was so pleased to see her safe that the accident was of little impor tance to him. The steel gaff was beut and the rivets pulled out about ten feet from the mast as the yacht jumped into a sharp tumble of sea. The yacht has a spare gaff at the Erin basin, and It will be put in place In time for to-morrow s race. The dense fog, which shut down on the' racing yachts when they had sailed about five miles of the last leg of the course, put an end to the racing. For an hour after ward they sailed for the lightship, each hidden from view of the othr and both out of sight from the Erin. They had reduced sail, but it was dangerous running. Sham rock III had been heading the old boat by five minutes when the fog shut down, so that when Shamrock I was the first to ap pear at Sandy Hook lightship, where the Ejrln waited, the anxiety on the Erin was increased. The Erin's whistle joined with that of the lightship as a guide to the miss ing boat, and ten minutes after the old boat she appeared sailing under her jib only, and was taken in tow of the Erin. Shamrock II had beaten the old boat three minutes forty-five seconds to the turn, and was fve minutes ahead when the fog rolled in. Sum mary: Start. Finish. El's'd. Shamrock III 11:00:0 12:5e:22 1:M:19 Shamrock 1 11:00:01 1:00: 2:00:04 No time was taken at the lightship. Cadillac Defeated by Detroit. TOLEDO, 0-. July 22. The racing this morning of the yachts of the Interlake Yachting Association regatta at Put-in Bay furnished another day of good sport. The 'race was over a straightaway course, five miles to windward and return. The weather was cloudy, with a fourteen-mile wind from the northwest and a lumpy sea. At the start the big sloop Ethel, of Toledo, fouled the 8ibyl off and the latter was put out of the race with a broken spar ind rigging tarried away. Once more the principal in terest centered in the race between the thirty-footer Cadillac and the Detroit. On time allowance Detroit beat Cadillac by thirteen seconds. This gives each of these yachts one heat on the trophies. NEARING A CLOSE. Sessl-Finals and Finals Reached la Cincinnati Tenals Tonrnament. ( INf'INNATI.

WRENNS MEET SUPERIORS LAHED A.D WRIGHT AHEAD IN THE DOl RLES CONTEST. 4 Edaar Leonard Gave Georg; Wrenn a Hard Battle in'the Single Re sults at Cincinnati. BOSTON, July 22.-To-day's play in the Longwood tennis tournament gave an op portunity to size up the capabilities of three men who have been selected to meet the English team the first week In August, and the result was not altogether encouraging. In the morning Edgar Leonard gave George Wrenn a hard battle and it was only after two sets and three straight games had gone against Wrenn that he awoke to the situa tion and finally, by wearing Leonard out. won the match. In the afternoon the American team re ceived a stil! further shock when Lamed and Wright, unknown as a double com bination until the Seabright tournament, had things pretty much their own way in the doubles contest with the Wrenn brothers. They completely outplayed and outgeneraled the Wrenn combine and by persistent lobbying and directing the play the Wrenns played directly into the hands of their opponents. Wright did not weaken in the least, and when the game was called on account of darkness it looked as though one more game would give the victory t Wright and Lamed. The match Storni 8-6. 8-S. 4-6. 6-5 in favor of Larned and Wright when it was stopped. It will be Continued to-morrow and the winners will play Ward and Ware. It was cold and foggy at Longwood to day, so that the turf was slippery and the conditions were far from good. To-morrow tho two w senna and the two Larneds are slated to meet each othe r in the cup singles, but as they nil have doubles in the after noon there is likelihood of defaults being recorded in both matches. U. S. L. OF B. AND L. A. Secretary Cellarlus Reports aa In crease in Local Associations. BOSTON, July 22. Following a brief ses sion of the executive committee, the eleventh annual meeting of the United States League of Building and Lean Associations was opened. At an informal banquet last evening members of the association, of which Ger ald Fitzgerald, of Grand Rapids. Mich., is president, were welcomed to Massachu setts by Governor John L. Bates and per sons connected with the co-operative bank ing system here. At the opening session to day a general representation of delegates was present. The order of business included the president s annual address, the reports of the secretary and th treasurer, appoint ment of committees and addresses. The report of Secretary H. F. Cellarlus. of Cincinnati, was devoted partly to a review of the changes in various statt' laws gov erning the operation of building and loan associations. In general, Mr. Cellarlus sai l: "For the first time since 189S the aggregate assets of the building and loan associations of the Cnlted States show an increase over the returns of previous years. There are in the United Stntes 5.299 local building as sociations, with a total membership of 1. 53O.707. and assets aggregating $577.228. 014. which Is an Increase of $11,840,048 over last year.'' President Fitzgerald, In his annual ad dress, dwelt on the Importance of the home, which he characterized in the light of history, as "the strongest force in the development of men and nations." In dis cussing the topic "What is the Value of Building Associations to the General Pub Ii?" H. A. Schroeteur, of Covington, Ky.. one of the speakers, said: "Every man ought to be able to produce a little more than he needs for himself and family. Most people Jo, 'et many live beyond their mtans. They have not learned to accom modate themselves to their income. Our young people wish to begin better than their parents left off. The penny is the foundation of the dollar, and the dollar th? cornerstone of one thousand. The hard est task Is to accumulate the first thou sand, every following thousand gets easier, and It takes but one thousand thousand to , make a million. There is a million in pros pect for every man who knows how to hold ! his earnings." POLE IMPOSED UPON. He Paid a Fee to n Man Who Said He Was a Policeman. J. Posmoisky. 611 Eddy street, called on Captain Hyland at the police station last night and related a story of how he had been terribly wronged, and Invoked the strong arm of the law to deal with a prac tical joker. He started out Wednesday nigh, to look for an officer to have some person arrested on an imaginary chargv. In the search for a policeman he dropped into Mik- Noun's SAloon, at the corner of Capitol avenue and Henry street. He announced that he was in u--r.t of an officer of the law. A young fellow standing at the bar turned to him and said that he was a de tective. "1 want you to make an arrest for mo," said Posmoisk . "All right." said the young man, "but this thing must be done properly." Hand ing him a blank pteot of paper to sign, he said: "Now hold up both hands and) swear." The Pole did as he was Instructed. "It will now be necessary, to make this matter entirely legal, for you to pay th.- regular fifty-cent fee." said the supposed Oncer. Posmoisky reluctantly paid the money. "Now." said the self-constituted minion of th law. "I will meet you Wednesday night at the drug store at Um eonw of Mary land and Illinois struts, and we ill go after your man The Pole stationed himself at ttie COT Bat Usi night and awaited anxiously thr com ing of h'm who w as to m ik- th.' prom arrest. Finally, after mrf than two hours had elapsed, he remembered that DC was 5(1 cents out and hurried to the police sta tion to have the unknown man arrestrd. He said he was a tall man with a smooth face. N-tr Lynched In Arkansas. MEMPHIS. Tenn.. July JJ.-John Gilbert, a negro, was lynched Monday afternoon near Pinckney Landing, Ark.

Chanice of Venue Granted in Craw ford and Thurp Cases Plummer la Kelt-fined on Houu. JACKSON. Ky.. July 2:2. -The grand Jury devoted the entire day to investigating the shooting affray on Cane creek yesterday between Mack Howard and the two Bar rett negroes. Indictments will be returned to-morrow against all three. Plummer ap peared In court and gave bond for $1,0U0. His trial was set for the second day of the November term of the Breatnltt county Circuit Court. Joe Crawford and Ed Thaii. indicted for the alleged burning of the home of Captain Ewen, were released on a bond of $2,000 each. Commonwealth's Attorney Byrd filed a petition asking for a change of venue in their case. The petition sets forth the ex istence of such a state of lawlessness In this county as, in tfie opinion of the com monwealth's attorney, would preclude the commonwealth getting a fair trial of these alleged offenders. Judge Redwine read the petition carefully and promptly granted the change, transferring the case to the Estill Circuit Court. Captain Ewen will leave for Lexington to-morrow under an escort of soldiers. It is said Judge Hargis and Attorney French have introduced evidence before the grand Jury in an attempt to have an indictment for perjury brought against Mrs. Mary Johnson, sister of the late J. B. Marcum. who testified to having seen Jett and White, with other men, lying in wait to assassinate Marcum. Attorney B. F. French, of Winchester, is here to have witnesses summoned and to make other preparations for the defense of Jett and White when their trial shall be called In Cynthiana next Monday GEN. CLAY IS DEAD. (CONCLUDED FROM FIRST PAGE.) pleasant than in the richly furnished" room of White Hall, guarded at all times by her grim, white-bearded, white-haired hue band. When asked yesterday morning why she left General Clay she said in a simple, childish way: I was lonesome." And the girl spoke the truth. She said she had had no company during the three years that she had been the wife of Gen eral Clay, and that she craved the compun ionship of girls of her age; that she was tired of dogs and books and music and art and studies and of General Clay; that she wanted to get out into the open air and break the bonds that seemed to bind her while she lived in the famous old mansion that her aged husband had provided for bar. She said that while General Clay was in Cincinnati, several weeks ago, Nannie Biggei staff, a neighborhood girl, had stayed with her, and that when General Clay re turned she decided that she would visit a while also. "I came here because I wanted to see the folks." she said, "and when 1 have tired of this place I will go to others. Then, perhaps, I will go back to White Hall." She denied thnt she had ever said that she did not love General Clay, but said that she frould not go back to him until it suited her. and that she intended to "have her visit out," no matter how long she was away. She did not seem to think that she had done wrong, but looked at It as a runaway child would look upon the offense of stay ing away from home a few nights without its parents' permission. She said that she hid visited General Clay at White Hall five times since she had been away, and that she would visit him again to-night, but that she would not return to him until it pleased her. T am tired of White Hall." she said, and a puckered frown overspread her face. In speaking of General Clay's life she said: "While Hall's an awful big place. Was you ever there? Well, there are thirty-five rooms in the house, and he's got seven of them furnished and a bed in erery one, and Just sleeps around in a different room every night. He does that to fool his sne&taa. They never know just where he is sleeping, and they couldn't shoot him if they should hapien to get into the house b- fore Toomey and Bud could stop them. (Toomey and Bud are two men paid to guard the house. j He's fixed for his ene mies. He's got a cannon In the house, and can move it so that it will shoot out any of the windows. "I don't know how many of otheq kinds of guns and knives he has; an awful lot of of them, though. Oh, I am not afraid of him. He and I are on good terms. I just don't want to live with him. 1 want to have some fun visiting around. I'm going to visit over to Richmond and up to Lex ington, and I would like to see Cincinnati." e GEX. CLAY'S CAREER. Life of the Old Lion of Whitehall Marked by Many Stories. Lexington (Ky.) Letter in New York Trib une. "The Kentucky fighter. General Cajsius M. Clay, who has just been declared Insane, is not long for this world," said Major R. S. Bullock, cashier of the Fayette National Bank, of this city, and a lifelong friend of the noted Kentuekian who Is now barri caded at his home, White Hall. "With all of his faults," continued Major Bullock, who has just returned from White Hall, "General Clay is one of the most lovable of men, but there can be no doubt that his mind is deranged, and he cannot be responsible for his acts toward his friends. He is now in his ninety-third year, and each of these years from his earliest boy hood has been filled with incidents of an exciting and startling nature. I daresay that no man now living or who ever lived in Kentucky has gone through what Gen eral Clay has and still retained the physical vigor he has. If his child wife, Dora Clay Brock, whose husband died a short time ago, will return to the old General, as he has begged her to do, he may live a long time yet, but without her presence and care the chances are decidedly against him, as he has positively refused to have the physi cians enter his home, declaring that he will shoot the first man who attempts to enter. He has no one in the house save his body guard. 'Joe' Perkins, and it is impossible to give him the attention he demands. "It appears to have passed unnoticed In the many newspaper articles which have been printed about him that his atormy parser did not begin until he delivered his Washington centennial oration at Yale, more than seventy years ago, and In which he vigorously defended the cause of the n- fro, using language which none but the bravest of men would dare have used. He Was s t in bis convictions and did not hesi tate nor fear to express them, but these views were the cause of making him a most universally hated man. and slaveholders in Kent in ky and other slave-holding States determined to make his life miserable or put him out of the way. General Clay re ceived hundreds of letters threatening his life and denouncing him as a negro lover, lake the brave man that he is and always has been, he paid little attention to these threats. General Clay never courted trou ble, but he would not go ten steps out of his way to avoid it. and not one incideut of his life will shov that he ever showed the white feather. There is not in his make-up the least tinge of the dunghill fowl, but the truest, gan-.est blood that ever coursed through a man's veins. "Notwithstanding the fact that General Clay waged war for the negro, the efforts In his behalf were never properly appreciated by the negro, and to this day" the ignorant among them regard hirn as a s.tv.ige. I doubt if any man in the entire South did more for the negro than did General Clay, freeing his slaves and fighting against slavery when few had the manhood to do s . He will carry with him to the grave sears made by knives and pistols received while contending for the rights of the ne gro, and it has always been a matter of regret to th" general that the negro showed so little gratitude for what he had done in his behalf. When the war closed General Clay quietly returned to his home here, and had as his companion an adopted son, Ixmney Clay, a child of five years, whom he had brought from Russia. From the outset the large retinue of servants began to in ik - It unpleasant for their master, stealing his silverware and groceries and carrying off the products of the plantation. The adopted son was poisoned and efforts were made to poisoir the general, but the plot failed, and it was then :hat the entire force. ltü a lew exceptions, received their dismissals and w,ere forced to leave the place. One negro, Perry White, dcclar- 1 that he would kill the general, and one morning the two met while the general was out riding. The negro made an effort to draw his pistol, but before he could do so General Clay shot him twice, once through the neck and once through the heart. Every man in the county knew the threats White had made against General Clay, and at the trial there was uo trouble in finding a verdict of acquittal. CLOSE CALL AT FOXTOWN. "I think It was in 1819 that General Clay came near being mobbed to death at Fox town while making a speech against slavery. A man named Turner was his opponent in the debate. He denounced the general roundly and a fight ensued, half a dozen of Turner's friends taking part and clubbing and knifing the general in a brutal manner. The general did rot have his pistol with him. but used his knife vigorous ly, inflicting wounds on Turner which re sulted In his death. The general was car ried to his home, only a short distance, cut and badly bruised, where he lay near death's door for several days. He would not let the doctors touch him. but he pulled through, marked over with scars which looked as if he had been pulled through a thrashing machine. This fight caused some of the Northern peopl? to say that it would have been a good thing for the cause of the negro if General Clay had been killed; but the general did not think so, and he read the riot act to some of them, saying that, while he was against slavery, he was not ready or willing to sacrifice his life at the hands of a cowardly mob for the cause. "Another time an attempt was made to double-team on General Clay was during his Congress campaign against Wickllffe. one of the bitterest contests this State has ever known. Wickllffe had made ugly remarks about Mrs. Clay and the general challenged him. the challenge being ac cepted. They fired at ten paces, but neither shot took effect. The general demanded a second shot, but this was refused by the seconds, and the principals left the field without shedding blood. General Clay al ways contended that he was convinced the pistols were loaded with blanks, as it was impossible for him to miss hi? mark. After this bloodless duel the men met in debate and the pro-slavery advocates determined to do up the general. The fact is, some of them had decided to kill the genrral. It was arranged that 'Sam' Brown, then one of the greatest bullies and fighters In all Kentucky, and 'Jake' Ashton and 'Ben' Woods, also well-known fighters, should do the work. They were at the public speak ing, and when General Clay began to skin' Wickllffe the bully Brown struck him and a general fight ensued. Again the general had not his pistols with him. but his trusty bowie knife was brought into play and he used it with telling effect. Brown shot the general In the breast, but the general succeeded in splitting his nose open, cut one ear off and literally sliced his head and face into pieces and cut out one eye. While the general was usingvhis bowie Ashton and Wood mauled him with chairs and clubs, making wounds which crippled him. Strange to say. Brown got well, and General Clay was triefl for mayhem, being acquitted, as It was shown that he was the assaulted party, and it was at the trial that Brown told of the conspiracy which had been formed to kill the general. Henry Clay de fended the general at thin trial. THE CLAY-MARÖHALL FEUD. "Kentucky has had all kinds of feuds, but I am of the opinion that none of these were ever more bitter and at the same time waged in a more high-toned and honorable manner than that of the Clay-Marshall feud. Henry Clay had met Humphrey Mar shall on the field of honor, and General Clay and 'Tom' Marshall Vert enemies for years. When the old general waff-running 'The True American 'Tom' Marshall, it is stated, was the ringleader in a mob which was formed to exterminate the general and his newspaper plant. There was no secret made of this determination on the part of the men who organized and planned the raid. The general oiled up his dueling pistols and in addition bought a pair of small brass cannons, which he loaded h avily and put in position on his desk in the office, the barrels pointing toward the door. In the office, too. he placed a large keg of powder, determining that if his pis tols and cannons failed to do the work of dispersing any mob which might visit him. he would touch the keg of powder off and 'all go to hell togethei. as he expressed it. At an unexpected moment the mob did at tack General Clay and his office, succeed ing In wrecking it, but doing the general little bodily injury. "It was when General Clay went to the Mexican war in command of a company that he decided that it was time to even up with 'Tom' Marshall, who was also captain of a company. The general has often told me that 'Tom' was drunk or under the in fluence of whisky about two-thirds of the time, and it was while in this condition that he took delight in vilifying General Clay, who was too brave to hold him to account while drinking. However, one day while in camp. Marshal made insulting remarks to the general, who promptly told him to dis mount and take his sword from the scab bard. Marshall refused, and rode off. re turning later with his brace of pistols buckled around him. General Clay was pre pared for him and told him to fire, but he didn't do it, turning his horse and riding back to his tent. It is stated that that same evening 'Tom' Marshall attempted to drown himself In the Rio Grande. "General Clay had other fights and duels, but 1 think the man he really wanted to kill most was too great a coward to fight, and I believe ho will go to his grave re gretting that he did not have the chance to fill his bod; full of holes. When the general had just passed his twenty-second birthday he was engaged to be married and his rival, a young doctor named De clarey, of Louisville, wrote a letter to the mother of the general's sweetheart, mak ing ugly and scurrilous charges against him. The mother showed the letter to Genera! Clay and asked for an explanation. He denounced everything as false and went to Louisville on the hunt for the author. He found him and gave him an unmerciful caning. James Rollins, afterwards general, accompanied General Clay and saw that the job was well done. When the young doctor got patched up from the caning he had re ceived he challenged General Clay and they met at a point in Indiana; but there was such a mob of Declarey's friends assembled that the seconds refused to permit the duel to take place. Another meeting place was selected, but the exchange of shots was again baffled for the samp reason. The day after the last meeting General Clay and the young lady were married and De clarey declared that he would cane him. The general went to Louisville to give De clarey a chance, but there was no fight in him and the next day Declarey killed him self." FAVORS AN INVESTIGATION. Secretary Hitchcock. Want Indian Territory Affairs Probed. WASHINGTON. July 21. -Acting Secre tary Ryan, of the Interior Department, to day made the following statement concern ing the department's attitude with refer ence to official charges in the Indian Ter ritory. "In view of the articles which have ap peared in the public press, it is proper to state that no complaints pending in the department against any of its officials in the Indian Territory charge any criminal nn.-M ondu t. Secretary Hitchcoc k h atf for some time been thoroughly impressed that there should be a searching Investigation of Indian Territory affairs by more effective means than he is authorized by law to em ploy. If it be true that any of the fed rul officials in the Indian Territory have been guilty of criminal acts, no one possessing any knowledge of the fact or any informa tion tending to prove the fact has shown any disposition to disclose It to the de partment or to anybody else, so far as the secretary knows. The secretary has no power to compel any such person to telj what he knows. He is hopeful th.it a grand jury may be directed by the Federal Court in the Indian Territory to take up the matter, ltecasue that tribunal can com pel witnesses to testify to any facts of which they may have knowledge. The sec retary believes that it is only by such an m . tlgatiou that official offenses, If any exist, can be uncovered "But. whatever may be done along tha line, all the power Secretary Hitchcock has will certainly be exercised to thoroughly Investigate nt only pending complaints, but all the conditions and situations under his jurisdiction in the Indian Territory.
