Tbe result of yesterday's race may he ttith- r i dampi-r on the ,ith--r COBtBOta, for the De feiider ln ,he eyes of inan> old yachtsmen showed i-i i'A tn much the superloi of Valkyrle III that It wa-i even thought the EnKlixhman Ib only a Irlfle. !f any, better than the Vlg-.lant. Mr Isellii, the trlumphant owner of the alumlnum boat, aot a tremendoua greetlng at tba flnlah, to whlcb ln rtapondinx, wlth Mra iaellA. *Ca_nata lucr and tba crew, he h*ld aloft the yellow eur that It aeema has brought surh luek to the now pale blue boat. II wlll be remember -d that It was In The Trlbuna that attentlon was called to the fact that the Da "ender's last accldent was her thlrteenth and that II would be her last -the more certalnly becuea the last race the alumlnnm boat salled was on a Frlday, and no one could go ba. k of that crush*r to the hoodoo. It wili be remembered, too, by readers of The Tribune th~t it was mentloned ln these columns that the Defender was sald to hava, sults of salls on board of her of whlch no on. . knew. That balloon Jlb :he New-Rochelle boat brought out yesterday was In the nature of a aur prlse. The Valkvrie has all BjOBBJ be*n aupposed to have the larg?-r salls. but yenterday the De? fender showed a balloon topsail that was far blB> ger than the Valkyrie's. When the ex.urslon sfeamers got down to tha Scotland Llght and s-.w th- two blg beautles.w.y out there In the o.ean stretching tnelr wlnga they flgured out Just hOW II would all be. But ten mlnutes later all their Ideas were upset by the orderin*,- of B startlng point further out to sea than t'ie riandy Ho .k Llghtshlp. THE 8HIFTINU OF THE STARTINO POINT. Accordlnx to i ule the flrst slgnal she jld be tha preparatory gun, followed ten mlnutea later by another gun, the last one giving th* yex'hta the rlght to go oevr the llne as soon as they could manage lt, and If they dldn't get over lnslde of two mlnutes, a third gun would be flred to an nounce the handlcap llniit. Hut yesterday .t 11:55 o'clock a gun boomed out ov*r the watera from the flagshlp. At flve mlnuteB after the noon h.ur I' w?s expected that another gun would go oft, and all the salling about and cruislng pf the two ya-hts were put down to the deepe.st gclence <>f the aklppera of tha Defender and the Valkyrie. Inatead of that the two captalns were oniy passlng the tlme ln careful wtng-ntrebhing fllghts. Then, when every one had alven up hopes of the start? lng slg-nal, another gun went off. and now tha careful taotlaa and Jockeyinga of the skllful cap? talns were looked upon as so much nonsense. A lot of Intelllgent persons puzzled th-lr heada over all this, untll the ca?.ful oiies, consultlng tba aaillng directions m<.re serlmsly, found that "ln case tho star*. is poatpoood .r the startlng poinl C OT.IVER ISEI.IN. la shlfted from the llghtshlp. a prellmlnary algnwl wlll be made by firlng a gun and dlsplaying tha yacht enslgn at the fore tifteen mlnutea before tha preparatory signal ls made." This ia what ea plalns the apparent atwpldlty of the Valkyrle ln g.-tn* to what every one thought waa the wrong slde of the commlttee boat once or twlce. And thla Is the explanation of the Def*nder's apparent cross purpos-s when she wasn't trying to gat by flrst at all. A DESPERATE DUEL. In reallty the start was perhaps the prettleat jan >f the contest. ex-ept the attemptfl of tha yachts to cross each other's bows in the desperata duel that took pla-e before the Defender's bu perlorlty wai. tt might he sald. established. It was a flght yesterday all the way to the turn ing of the stake buoy. After that. on the way home. as a Fren-'hman who kept admlrlng the beauties of the two ynchrs remarked: "Ce n'eat plUB une course." The Valkyrie was the flrat to want to take libertl-s wlth the Defender. Both b. ats were salling merrlly In the teeth of a north east braBBII. which. however much the Valkyrle may like that BOft of ara ither, was certalnly not the strong golng that is best sutted to the De? fender's wlshes. The Valkyrle seemed to be not only well in the lead, but 10 ba galning steadlly. It was about 1:41 o'clock. Every one could see that there was aoma BV0V8 of importance contem plated on the Engllsh challenglng vesael. for all her crew were at their hlghest tension. The crew of the Defender, from the hortz-ntal posltlona on her whlte de.ks. were summoned to thelr sta, tions. At Its the Valkyrle went in staya and put about to tne port tack. The Defender .11 along had been p intlng up cloger in the wind than the Valkyrle, and to the experteneed aho innn nrxr.AVEN. was not nearly so much In the rear aa the VaJa kyrle tactics sometlmes made her look. The apeo> tators on the steam yachts and the pasaengera on the blg escuratoa ati-amera stood up 88 aea how the auda.ious inove of the Valkyrle would work.
