E. A. Wlllard, who sailed the Vigilant yeeten
and many other yachting experts, were of the o

ahead of the Vigilant that there Is no longer

There can be no question either as to the Vigila
showing all she was worth yesterday. The
champion was In tip-top form and greatly lmpro
over her appearance of Saturday, although on t
day she looked perfection Itself to any one bu
most critical expert. She was admirably sailed ,
came bo fast at the finish that some people wls
the race had been a little longer to see If she rei
might not have redeemed her defeat.
A good ?tiff breeze was piping down below Sai
Hook, and the experts who were early on hand

still the wind occasionally took a rest. The win?
little before the race was from WBBt SOMthSf?
from which It veered to south-southwest. The con
wa? laid from the Scotland Lightship southeast
miles to a stake buoy, thence southwest toward
Jersey coast to another stake buoy, from which
run home was made.
The early visitors to the Horseshoe were eai
watchers for the changes that had been made
the two yachts since their contest on Saturd
Both. It was known, had un?ler??me severe prepa
tlona for what It ?as known would be a bruisi
race, and each was looked over most caret*1
when she came nn the grounds. The Vigilant I
at anchor all night In the Horseshoe, ami from
moment her big mainsail was hoisted nn?l hi r
set she was followed by steam yachts Bad sm
excursion steamers. The Defender came down
the battleground early. She was standing ab.
carrying a mainsail and a small Jib topsail SB eni
as 10 o'clock .:i the morning. The most notieeal
things about the Defender were her new brae
which were among the most important ?alterado
made a) Piepgra?'? yards at City Island on Bu
day. When the boats ti^at lia?! come down t?? ?
the race began t" OOHsd tl.ukly together at t

five mlmiles to the tlr'ng of the preparatory gut:
They wheled once more to look out for the wind
aard position, bat II aaem? i as if it was to civ
the ?pei-tator? a chance to admire them. The win,
began to freshen perceptibly, as the experts ha,
been promising It irould, but some were beginn,tu
to doubt it and to talk of a ?lrlfting mat?h. .Ins
as the gunner was handling his lanyard the I"'
fender afforded a near-at hand exhibition of fin
yachting by breaking out her Jlbtopsail. Thei
came the bang of the preparatory gun. At lh?
same moment the Vigilant, as If not to be out
done In courtesy by the Defender In affording th,
visitor* a view of sail handling, set out he;
J!btop?ail also. The two yacht? jochojrsd for po
s.tlon. and the gun was fired as they were makim
some Interesting moves. It looke.l at one momen
a? If the Defender was going across too soon, bu
?he didn't. She luffed to suddenly that a cry o
surprise went up and then It was seen that sh<
had crossed the Vigilant'* bows ami taken th?
windward position, as well as succeeding In cut
ting across first. The oftVlal time for the Defend
er? crossing the line was 11 hour? 2. minutes ?
The Vigilant Immediately ran up a red flag as -
signal that she woull make a protest, and th?
Sylvia answered the signal. Experts ?ay that II
?he Vigilant had the Intention of making a protest
she would have kept thl? flag flying all the time ol
the race. They believe that a protest will not b?
made, as the little signal was soon hauled down,
?nd It Is I? believed that the Vigilant'? commander
thought better of It.
At the New-York Yacht Club last night no protest
had been entered on behalf of the Vigilant. Th?1
Vigilant has until to-day at 11 o'clock to make a
formal protest under the rules. To those on the
Cophetis It appeared that the J>efender had about
one hundred yards the best of the start, but there
Is a deceptive angle, and besides start Is allowed for
In yachting as In horse racing. Roth yachts were
over well within the prescribed two minutes, and
the final gun boomed out with the falling of the
flag on ?he New-York Yacht Club's flagship Sylvia.
The race had begun and the yachts were stan'Ilng
out toward the buoy on their flrat leg of ten miles.
It was a good club-topsail breeze, and tne two
fairly ?cudded before It. The tug I.uckenbach had
to ?team fast and earnestly ?o get to the mark
and plant the flag on the buoy before the yachts
would be upon her. Roth yachts ret their balloon
Jibs almost as ?oon a? they got over the line, and
the good leading breeze s?_-med to fairly lift the
bows of the fleet boats from the waters as they
skimmed along. At MM the Defender got out her
spinnaker, an action that was Immediately Imi?
tated by the Vigilant. It was nor." too soon to
take what slight advantage might be of a breeze
that was a fickle one, for the wind now began
to fall away. In a few mlnut.-s u had the look.
Of a drifting match, for the balloon Jib? flapped
Impotently in the dying breeze, and soon the spin?
nakers, too, showed signs of want of motive power.
In the light wind that followed for a little time
the Vigilant seemed the faster boat. It may have
been that she only kept the wind In her balloon
|lb a trifle longer. The Defender was to windward
Of the Vigilant, and apparently a good half mile
?head of her. The Vigilant began to gain again,
then lost the wind and fell off.
The Defender wa? the first to wake out of a
calm that ?eemed about to fall on both vessel?. In
Sptte of the fact that some of the expert? ?lid not
consider the Defender's balloon jib large enough or
good enough for her. Mr. I.lppltt. of Providence.
?wner of the Wasp and othei good boat?, began to
Worry over a prediction he had mode that the De?
ader would beat the Vigilant by at least ten
BHntitee. The Vigilant seemed to be coming up
BP'dly. as the breer-e began to freshen Here the
?diera of the Defender ?eemed to be pinching
ner too much. At 11 M the Vigilant ?eemed to be on
?ren term? with the Defender, and In fact coming

At 12:4S the Defender ?et her Jib for windward

She took In her balloon Jib. As the Tiefender got
about the turn she broke out her baby Jib topsails,

Once started IS running free it could he seen how
much more stlflly the Kefender was than the Vigi?
lant. At 1:32 both boats came about an?! went on
the port tack. The breeze had freshened considera?
bly, and the Defender was gnining In the work to
Windward. This was almost the first time during
the race that the set of ?sails had shown to advan?
tage. There was nn evident Improvement !n the set
of the Vigilant'?. top?alls. Everything was draw- |
ing well on both boats. The Vigilant seemed to
come up h trifle, but the wind fell off and the De
fenler again ?seemed to gain slightly. Both boats
tacked again almost simultaneously, as the wind
came rather more from (he shore. The Defen?ler
was now about a quarter of a mile to windward.
She was certainly outfootlng the Vigilant on this
tack. At l:4?i both boat? w??nt in stays almost at
ihe same moment again. The l?efender took a lack

seemed to be pointing fully a? well as on Betur?

In these light drifting race* the be??t boat will often
take a good while to travel a hundred yards ami
the slight advantage. If any. of gaining a small
lead while on such a leeward BOUISO Is, as a rule, of
little use when the breeze springs up. In other
words, a small lead, which was moet expensive at
a cost of one minute and a half on a drifting start,
will, when the breexe grows fresh, be only worth
perhaps about ten seconds, because, with a g?????!
wind a, boat will travers? *he dlsnance In ten sec
(?n?ls. From thle It will be ?een that the delay made
by Vigilant In starting was entirely good form gad
would have exhibited better calculation if farther
prolonged. There are few premiums on standing
still In a yacht rnce, and the navigators of the
Vigilant would do well to study thl? branch of the
The light airs were about on the ?juarter of both
boats when they etarted. and apparently a trifle
mor? aft than this. It took Ihe ?kippers? of boih
boata sixteen minutes to fln.1 out that with thl.?
breeze they nee?led spinnakers. Then bo'ims grerg
lowered to starboard on both boats, and spinnakers
were set.
These sails did goo?! work for some time after they
were set. The Vigilant, which had, until this time
remalne?! at about the same distance behind the
Defender as In crossing the line, now drew up ?ii;
even terms with the leader. She ,]|i] not, however,
attempt to blanket her. whh-h she could easily hnve
done; and In this abamlonmcnt of a Clear and
proper advantage she showed a S0lf?SSl'fliV'lllg con?
sideration of Iiefender's best Interests.
For a goo?l while Vigilant tried to pass through
Defender's lee. But she could not do this. More?
over, the wind here fell lighter, and drew more
ahead. The spinnakers flagged, got tired, dropped
In, and were taken off both boats.
After this they each proceeded under balloon Jibs
and staysails as forwar?! canvas. In this quiet,
lady's-day sailing. Defender proved herself a witch,
uni stole away from the ?.win Vigilant in a gral
lia! but per.-eptlble way. This surprise?! every one,
be. aune Vigilant is doing her liest when she can

From this portion of the course Iiefen?ler b?-at

the end of the first ten-mil? leg of the triangular
It was a pretty eight at this buoy to watch De

looked better than they felt, for salDra

Neither of the boats made good turns In
the buoy, nor In getting aft their malnsh'-f

?If we start In on Beptemher l, we shall h;

mike it long enough. What 1 believe In Is a she
sharp and spirited campaign with plenty of harmo
among the ftepiihll-an?. In my opinion, the pal
shore the Harlem itiv.-r ?vas never in better sha
b*-f ?re entering ii|?.?ii a contest"
Referring to the mbject of the ticket, Mr. Hack?
sal I:
"I think that the entire State ticket that wae *
torlous two years ago will be renomlnsted. The
lave been Intimations that State Controller Robei
! I n??t feel well enough to a?-'-ept a renomlnattc
but 1 think you will discover when the tlr
comes that Mr. Robert?, along with Messrs. Palm?
Colvtn, Hancock and .viams, win uccept. I loi
for the unanimous renomlnatlon of all of them at
for their triumphant election. The convention,
my view, will have v?ry plain sailing."
Mr. Hnckett sal 1 tli.it Secretary Kenyon sr
Chief Clerk Iteuhen I, Fox. of the Stn*le Comml
tee. had been figuring out the repr?sentatif
which each county would be entitled to. and thi
If would show a slight increase In the number ?
delegates to be Ch?en This was because of tf
existence of twenty-two more Assembly dtstrle"
created by the new ?'oiistltution. As each Assen
hly district was entitled to one delegate for ese
l.iiiO votes ?set for I. vi P Morton at the last ele?
tlon ainl an o/idttlonal delegate for the major fra?
lion of that number so cast, the Increase In tin
Assembly district would produce a slightly largf
convention this year.
"Is the State Committee or the Convention like!
to take any action on the question of amending th
l\x,-lse laws?" Mr. Ifack?*tt was asked.
"I don't pretend to say what the committee c
the Convention will do," was the reply. "1 pet
?ottally favor a more liberal Kxclse law than th
one now on the statute books. As far a? I ca
Ju?lge now I think I ?hould favor the Ohio law
which simply taxes the bustnesa If the liquor
dealer violates the law he must go out of buslnes?
If the Republican? carry the next legislature Jua
and equitable Kxclse laws will be passed. Every
body knows that the present law was the produc
of the stolen Democratic Legislature of IRK. am
that It? object was to piy the liquor men of New
York In the power of the Tammany leader? and th,
New-York poilce."
"What ?Io you think of the present enforcemen
of the law In this city?''
"I do not care to express any opinion on that sub
Ject. I should not be surprised If every county h
the Slate follows the action <?f Fulton ami Frank
lui counties an?l declare? for ??ovemor Morton foi
Preeldenl In IBM, and the apnron.-hlng State Con
ventlon might with propriety do th?* same thing.
"It was with some astonishment that I reat
Mavor Strong'? recent Interview sent out frort
Rlchfleld Springs, but I do not desire to make anj
comment? on It now."
Mr. Hackett added that he might have somethln?
to say about the Mayor'? statement, and perhapi
also about Commissioner Rrooktteld, later In th?
day, but he soon afterward left the city for the Ori?
ental Hotel, Manhattan Reach, where he gpeni
the evening with Mr. Platt. It waa reported thai
Mr. Hackett and Mr Platt were at work last night
on an answer to the Mayor, which would be given
to the public to-day.
Kx-Senator Warner Miller ?eem? to prefer the
city fo hi? home at Herktmer. He ho? been here
for over a week, and 1? at the Fifth Avenue Hotel.
The ex-Senator say? that he Is In the city on busi?
ness, but the political gossip? have to talk about
something, and a? It In a dry aeason now, they
have been ?ommentlng upon Mr. Miller'? probable
business In the city.
The story that was going the rounds yesterday
wa? to the effect that he I? here looking about to
see what hi? chance? are to ?ujceed Benetor Hill.
Now, it would appear, there !? another Richmond
In the field. The new candidate for the toga Is
said to be ex-Congreasman Henry Q. Burleigh, of
Whitehall. The latter Is ?aid to have opened cor?
respondence m-lth various State leader*, and to have
secured pledge? for himself.
When ex-Senator Miller was asked about this re?
port yeaterday. he said:
"I did iee It printed somewhere In a newspaper.
That is all that I know about the candidacy of
Mr Rurlelgh. It 1* ?.i,?, hot tO talk polltli*?, and I
