Montreal, Sept. 7 (Special).?The Rev. Dr.
Kane, of Belfast. Grand Master of the Orange body In
Ireland, accompanied by G. IL Hmttb, of Armagh, ar?
rived here to-Jar. He says: " We have eome to

" Mr. Parnell ls a landlord himself, having a property
In County Wloklow. bringing in a rental of ?1,300 a
year. About live years ago he presented a petition for
the sale of this property to the Land aud Estates Court
lu order to pay off encumbrances amouutlng to ?13,000.
The Parnell tribute fund was then started ot whioh,
after paying his luoumhranoes In full, Mr. Parnell netted
Alb.OOO. Though his party enunciates the dootrlne tnat
occupiers of the soil ought to os owners he hes never
proposed to put his own tenants In that position on any
terms whatever. He ia characterized as a landlord who
enforces payment of his reuts when due by process or
writs. Hts brother, who permanently resides In the
United statos, has a proporty In ths County of Armagh,
occupied by tenants who at the prese.nl moment, If they
have not paid their rents within one fortulght after lt ls
due, are served with writs fruin tbe Superior Courts for
the recovery of amounts and before Ootober 20, 1985,
thirty-five writs were served in oue day for reuts due on
September '211, and only one was tor ii .ra than a jo.
"The Unloolsts are not opposed to Home Rule,so far as
lt means an extension of the principles of looal govern?
ment, on lines whloh will be applicable to other parts of
the United Kingdom, but we will oppose to the death
the dlamomberiueiit or tho United Kingdom. This, we
believe, ts tbe aim of the National League."
Speaking of the Belfast riots Dr. Kane said: " Thoso
riots bave been considerably exaggerated. However,
thev wera due In the tlrst ni tee to intolerance on the part
of navvies toward a poor fellow whom they would not
allow to work on account of hla rell-'lous belief, and
wilora they 111 treated. The poltoe from southern coun?
ties aoted In a most one-sided way. assisting Nationalist
muiis. However, the disturbance will be only tempo?
rary and will lead to a reconstruction of the Belfast police
force." Dr. Kans weat weat to-ulghw

that the Rev. Mr. Smythe, while pastor of the First
I'uited Presbyterian Church of Harlem, in East One
Huudred-aod-aixieenth-st., New-York, had been guilty
of conduct whloh was calculated to break up tbat

ed an improper spirit when before tho
Presbytery ; also lhat hs had been the author of letters,
eic, which tended to divide his flock, for which the
Synod suspended him indelinltely. Mr. Smythe lu his
answer slated lhat the Syuod whloh suspended him only
did so after all Ihe ino inners save twenty-live bad left

to mark a satisfactory contest?
Two of the fastest yachts that ever raced sailed
for tbe America's Cap over tbe New-York Yucht
Club course yesterday nnd, as lia? happened every
time tho rup baa been contested for, victory
remained with tho Stars aud Strn.es. The 8-7
was a perfect ono for a marine pageant and a good
ono for Instit wcatln-r yachting. Tho Mayflower
took thi lead immediately after tho start and for
over (ive hdirn .ind a half tho racing lian of Lieu?
tenant Henn hopelessly chased the signal of tho
Yankee sloop over tho blue and sunlit water. A
Kentle wind from the south rippled tho Hay and
ocean and tempered the heat of tho sun, and tho
thousands who viewed tho race from tan
yachts ami excursion steamers saw the most
beautiful sight thatwasever presented on those
waters. The English yacht sailel well. She
showed that sho was as licet a yacht at lea--t as
tho challenger of last year, Sir Richard Sutton's
lien.-sta. But that flying Yankee from Bolton
could no more be caught by her than thc sunbeams
that danced on tlie waves before her B_iarp bows.
Tl.e Mayllower was well haudled and she slid along
to certain victory as easily and gracefully as a bird
skimming along the waves. Her victory over the
Galatea was not so groat as that of the Puritan
over tho Genesta over tho same course last year,
but is was enongh to show conclusively that in
light weather certainly, in all weathers probably,
sho is able to keep tho cup from going over to
Cowes in the locker of the Galatea.
The only thing that marred tho race was the
culpable carelessness of tho tugs and steamers in
getting in the way of the rv ing yachts. In splto
of all that has boen said and written ou tho subject
steam vessels would insist on keeping close to the
racers, and seemed to think it a matter of little
importance it they ran across tho yachts' bows and
sent a swash of water against them. It was with
ditlicuity that the regatta committee could get a
clear place for the yachts to start and finish and
round the buoys and the lightship. Now and then
a crowd of et earners and tugs would get around
one ol the racing yachts, taking from her what
little wind th.-ie --/as and seriously iuterieting with
the race. One of the most offensive tugs was that
chartered by the New-Haven Yacht Club, which
would cling close to the leo quarter of the Galatea
in spite of tho warnings of the regatta committee.
As a -rule tho steamers and tugs pothered the
Galatea more than they did tho Mayllower, thus
adding discourtesy to ignorance and stupidly
I At 10 o'clock, when the judges' boat Luckenbach
steamed down to Bay Ridge, a great fleet of yachts
was thou making preparations to get under way.
From the city a larger licet of tugs and steamers,
all crowded with people, carno steaming do au.
Sailing directions, regularly signed and sealod by
the regatta committee, were put aboard the yachts.
Aud then the Luckenbach dropped her anchor oil'
Owl's Head and waited tor a breeze There was
scaicelv anv air stirring at the time, but tho mists
and clouds were rolling away In gnat sunlit
masses, and to tbe southward there was the
SN misc of a wind. The rival yachts under main?
sail, forcstaysail, club-topsail and jib, .moved
leisurely ever toward tho Staten Island shore. On
tlio Mayllower were General Paine, her owner;
Edward Burgess, her designer; E. A. Willard, Dr. '
Bryant, Nathaniol Herrcshof and J. Frederick
Tams- Her sailing-master. Captain Stone, was
at tho wheei. and "Joe" Ellsworth, looking
?BUMS?J solemn, stood near bini. On the Galatea
wero Lloyd I'l.enix, who represented the New-York
Yacht Club; Frederick May, J. Beavor-Webh and
Lieutenant and Mrs. Henri. The Lieutenant of the
Royal Navy looked as good-natured and jolly as
ever, aud so perfectly happy at tim prospect of a
race that he uid uot seem to care ho tv it resulted
so long as it was a race.
The blSSM that came creeping out of the south
freshened, and as it became evident that the
judges' boat would soon give the preparatory
signal, the English aud American ya. his lay
almost motionless with their sheets trimmed .fist
aft. abo ve the starting line. The Mayllower had
her jib topsail run up in stops and t blue-shitted
sailor was perched in hor cross-trees liko thst
"sweet little cherub that sits up aloft,'sud who
has become in the course of years and yacht races
something ol a ''chestnut.'' The crow of the
Galatea, in suits of snick-and-span white, with
their ** Geordie caps'' ot red and whito on their
inads, looked like sailors out of a picture-book.
The most promineut thiuz ou the deck of tho May?
flower was a pair of Haming red suspeiidors which
adorned General I'aine. i hose suspenders were
gleaming and tiery. Tncre wero defiance and
victory in them. All day long they gleamed over
the waters like a rich ruby in a sapphire setting,
bnt the ? ..il.itt-.i never could get near enough for
Lieutenant Henn to study their cut.
After some trouble the judges' boat succeeded in
clearing au open space between itself and the buoy
oil Owl's Head and bluw ihe preparatory signal.
The yachts cautiously ai.pio.vlied tlie line nud the
Maytlower broke out her jib-topsail. 'Ihey were
both close on to the line when the startiiu whistle
was blown sk lOtM o'clock. I lien took place one
of the prettiest starts ever seen at a yacht race.
Ihe Msytlowei was ulmoston tho line with the
Galatea un her wc.itlier ijoaitei when the Knglish
yacht sudd july &hoi ahead aud blanketed hei ii val.
They shot over the line together with only a
Second's (titlerenco in their time and with a sneed
that w as wonderful to behold. In the light air the
cut er swept ahead cf Ler antagonist. Ihe
America's cup seemed dissolving into air. Surpriso
was on every faco among the yachtsmeu who looked
u The blamed tbing eau go." shouted one yachts?
man in consternation. But the success of the
English yacht was only momentary. The May?
llower soon regained what she had lost at tho start.
A strong Hood tide was running at this time. Tbe
yachts crossed on the starboard tacit and stood
over to tho Long Island shore, tho Galatea being to
windward. When well under the Long l-l.md
shore tho yachts caine about almost at the snmo
time. Tho Galatea was ahead, but the Mayllower
soon begau to eat out to windward. This wind?
ward position she constantly kept increasing. Tho
Galatea seemed to go through the water faster
than her rival, but she could not hold lier own with
the Mayllower in windward work. Tho supeiioiity
ol the centre-board over the deep keel for helping
a boat to Ret to windward was being demonstrated.
JFtnm the start to the finish the cruise waa thirty
eight miles long, and for this course the Mayllower
allowed the Galatea thirty-eight seconds.
The time of tho start was as follows:
Mayflower.IO: Tit. 12
The racing yachts held their way on the port
tack toward the Staten Island shore, and when
mside tho line of merchant ships anchored there
came ou tho starboard rack again. When they
came on tho starboard tack the windward position
of the .Mayllower gave her tho lead and this lead
she never again lost. 'The Mayllower, being ahead,
got the fresh wind that drew up through the
Narrows first, ami still further increased her lead.
'Thus they passed out through the Narrows into
the Lower H.ty. A. fair yachting bree/.e was blow?
ing in tho Bay which nulled the waters, but there
was no sea running, and besides the ceaseless
churning of tho tugs and steamers the lazy swell
that relied in Ir uni the ocean was all that rocKcd
tho yachts.
Just below Fort Lafayette the Mayflower came
about on tho port tack. The Galatea still held her
starboard tack. The Mayflower stood over to the
West Bank and then came about on the staiboaid
tack again. The Galatea had mine on the port
tack and was following tho Mayflower over to the
West Bank when tue steamer St. Johns caine down
and ran across her bows, making a great swasu
which made the cutter roc? and pitch. Tbs May?
de wei stood over toward Cooey Island l'oint and then
at 11;SS caine about on the port tack nguiu. One
minute later tlio Galatea came on the starboard
tack. The Mayflower made a short leg and then
came on the starboard tack once more. When the
yachts got so far to the eastward that they could
see tho waves creeping up tho white sands on the
western shore of Cooey Island, they came nlm.it on
tim port tack, the Galatea setting the example.
As they now went reaching to westward It
seemed as if tho Galatea had gamed a little on the
American boat. But the gain was not enough to
give any fear that tho Boston yacht would drop
behind. At ll:.".?; the cutter made a short leg on
the starboard tack, but soon after came back again
on the port tack. Tho Mayflower came on the
starl...ard tack at 12:00, but came about again live
minutes inter. The Galatea, after holding her
tack for s.une time, came on the port tack and
st..nd to tho eastward. At 1 _.':__..*>:30 the Mayflower
did the same. Thus rhey went tacking down to
the Southwest Spit witb steamers, tugs and yachts
swarming around them. The Mayflower swept
around Buoy No. IO nearly live minutes in the
lead. The time at this point was:
daisies. LUO.oo
A little further on toward the 1'oint of the Hook
was Buoy No. 8 _, The yachts rounded that mark
at the following times :
Galatea. 1:07:07
Thus at Buoy No. 8-u tho American boat led her
antagonist live minutes and sixteen seconds. The
wind had hauled more to tbe eastward now aud
wa* blowing from south-southeast, llie yachts
laid tl.en court* for the place where beyond the
horizon they knew the red-hulled Sandy Hook Light?
ship was rocking on tbe waves for tn.-in to round.
The wind began to fail as th*- yachts crossed the
bar and those who had been through tho harrow?
ing experiences of last year, w bes day after dav
the wind relusod to be a psrfy to an international
ra... between the Genesta and Puritan, lelt their
hearts go down with the wind. But their lens
wen- needless, for after thc lightship was rounded
the breeze freshened again. It was a long reach
out to tho lightship, devoid of especial interest
fi "in a racing point of view, but a beautiful picture
to look at. The Mayflower steadily increased ber
lend and, Laving stood far en.nigh ovei to fetch the
lightship, came about on the port tack and stood
for the turning point ot tho race, ."she had taken
in (h.- small jil.-topsail under which she nad sailed
so far, and had lui balloon jib-topsail run up in
stops ready to break out when she should round
the lightship. By great exertions the judges' boat
cleared a pathway for the sloop around Hie light?
ship among the inconsiderate tugs and steamers.
The Mayflower rounded thc lightship nearly lo
in mites ahead of tbo Galatea amid a pandemonium
ot whistling ot steam, rs aud shouting of nun.
The time at which the yachts rounded thc light?
ship was as follows:
'! be Galatea took in her small jib topsail and set
her balloon jib topsail and a large forestaysail after
rounding, ibe crew of tbe cutter, usually so
quick and handy, seemed to be demoralized at the
certainty of defeat and wero a long time iii doing
(he work. When the Mayflower bioko out her
balloon jib topsail, which sho did quickly and
neatly, she look in her otber head sails. Tb*" two
yachts laid their course fur the l'oint of the Hook
and the Mayflower still fun hei drew away from
tho QslStSS SI they went sliding toward ihe low
s.tiitlv beatties that stretched along below the
Highlands. The yachts rounded Buoy No. 10 ou
thu ruo as follows :
Mayflower. 3:37:00
titilalea. 3:"iO:00
They now ran for the tiuish at Buoy No. 15, just
outside the Narrows. Tho wind would scarcely
alinit Iroiu its due. tum nt nins ike rs being used
until shortly lietoie tho lin.sh. when the Galatea
set bon anti carried it to the buoy. Ihe Maj flower

Ths colored people, composing the majontf
of the population of tho etty, have recoivot
every possible consideration. At a meeting
of colored clergymen held on Monday aa
appeal w.,s prepared and a lopted, in which the aid of
ibo American people was invoked for tho colored peo?
ple of Charleston. The appeal is sinned by seven min?
isters of colored churches. The object of tho me..11114
was, no doubt, a good one, hut it was nut necessary iii
fie least, for appeals have air-ly been
made to the poople of the United Mutes
In behajf of the cuzens or Churleston, aud,
aa there ts no section.tl line, nu shadow ol

the people of tho L'uitol States for tlie llanelli of those
who aro rendered homeless hy the eirt'ipi ikes, 01 wh,?
are not In a position to support themselves from d.iy to
day. There was 110 thought of color or class in nuking
the appeal and there ls no .lum.ct:..11 of class
or oolor In applying the means of relief. The
people here can not afford to be dlvidod In auy
sense at this time. Tho colored pastors In Charleston
and elsewhere oau reud*r excellent service 1 > tho Itelitf
Committee by obtaining accurate Information rc- tiding
tho distress iii tin; city. They can Hud om who aro In

Committee. They eau take ears that the charity of the
American people shall not be imposed on, and
that persons who are aldo to work but
who are unwilling to support themselves and
prefer to Ure In idleness, shall inti be recommended aa
proper recipients of public ai 1. lu this wav tho colored
pastors can help on the good work instead of
marrlug aud hindering it, lt can easily lie aeon
tbat the first eftret of ths sppsal of
the col01 ed pastors ll lt were to romain unexplained

Tbls is not the fitot, and ihe colored people know lb
More sheller bas been provided for the co.ore I people
than for the whites. Nor is there a shadow of distinc?

And so with the Knights of Labor. Charleston bas
not tbe same representation of ths horny-handed sons
of toll that Uer sister cities at the North boast of, bul
the Knights of Labor have recently orgaul/-I hero.
Yesterday they applied to Colouel J. A. Yates,
chairman of the lid ef Committee, tor funds ta
bs distributed by them to suffering workmen
aud their families. The Kolief Committee replied,
thanking them for any Information extended as to tba
Deeds of tbe destitute, but ressrvtng the right

for the relief of tbe suffering. W. 1*. Kussull. the
