[BT TKLEGSiPH TO THE TBIBCSHS. I yew-port. R. L. July 29— When W. Butler pecran. jr.. the manager of the Constitution. rsS asked why the last Herroshoff defender did sß t win the Astor cutter cup in the race just «3l«bed. he said: "Because we got licked—be cause our boat won't sail fast enough." That was fgte exact truth, spoken frankly, bravely in the jjic* of great disappointment. Mr. Duncan had jet hie heart on winning the Astor Cup, not fcef8 sje of its £1.000. but because it is the most ,(jsgtt for of the American home trophies. Mr. punrtr was also asked whether the Columbia k»d improved since she raced with the first ejasrock. and be said. "I have no reason to f^j n set. But Rfle can go like a streak. The gut way to find how she can go Is to follow her m tie Constitution." Th* record for th» schooner race is that the ggaioa gave the Quissetta a good start and left j yr behind before the first mark was reached ' gal then lost her in the windward work. The , fjgsftir Corona sailed a magnificent race, and I ,rtjli her huge balloons was a most picturesque Edition to the sailing fleets, but she did not get c ter the course soon enough to give the alert HhP*w her time allowance. Xfrport Harbor would have looked gloomy »»at mommg if it had not been so busy. Astor Qgp races do not come every day, and the prep arations made for them are complete. Every jioat that intended to race had her interior fur njtsre removed. The schooner Quissetta had jjfT tender alongside taking out the last few OSBBO>. and the tender Park City was up i^lßSt the Columbia, taking evety chain and aaekor that was not required. The Constitu- : tion sent up her largest club topsail and bore girsr from her moorings at 9:39 o'clock. The Columbia followed five minutes later, also : eamrtoC her largest kite over the gaff These . WjwU slipped out to the Brenton Reef light- ( ¦kip in short order. The Independence, which to-day was intended to be a mere onlooker, iras seTid;rE up a supposedly large topsail, and It needed no education as a gu«»«^er to divine '. that she intended to measure her speed in some j •tray with the racers.

Nicholson Kane ordered ' the course signals to be set at 10:1*0 a. m., and ttier the fleet was told that the Block Island coarse would be sailed. This was from the Brenton'e Reef Lightship to a stakeboat one tnile due east of Block Island buoy, leaving it to port, a distance of thirteen and a half miles, the compass course being southwest one-eighth west; then on a course northeast by east three- | starters east eighteen miles to a stake*oal j anchored two miles southwest by west from West Island Light, leaving same to port; thence west by north, one eighth north, six and a half miles to the finish line at Brenton's Reef. This , gave the yachts a run to the first mark, a beat to the second and a reach with the wind slight ly abaft th« beam to the finish. The prepara- , tory gun was fired at 11 a. m., ard then the Constitution went out eastward with the Co- Icnbia following close to windward, both on the pert tack. When about half the time was gone the Constitution stayed to starboard tack, the \ Columbia turning at the same time and again drawing out to windward across the Con- : ciliation's bows. The 11:05 starting pun was fired when both boats were a good J •stance from the line, and the Constitu- j tion broke out her balloon Jib and went I Straight for it. The Columbia lowered j her spinnaker boom to starboard and pointed , for the line But it was only to give j Rhodes the idea that she would cross at ; sace. Instead of that Barr determined to take j acre of the five minutes allowed in the timed. Star, and suddenly hauled up to windward of j tht Navahoe. the Eelin. the Hester and the ; Isolde which were in a cluster to windward of j the line, ajid skirted round to windward of them to exhaust more of the starting time. The ad »*ata*» of this was that the following boat has the advantage In any freshening of the wind. •*<! on the committee watch the differences In the starting time are allowed at the finish. The ¦ Constitution crossed first at 11:01:35. followed j tribe. Navaho* at ll:0S:l<3. The Columbia, set- ( **ng the balloon jib. cam* next at 11:08:19, with the Senta nearer the committee boat at 11:05:36. Rear-Commodore C. L. F. Robinson's Hester th« came at il:0». with P. T. Dodge's Eelin *' 11:09:10. The Constitution set her spinnaker i to starboard at 11:09:50, and the Columbia broke out hers at the same time, she being then ' •¦s or twelve lengths behind. Tte Independence *as then about a mile ahead and to leeward, letting her spinnaker as if to pace herself with the ethers. The start of the schooners was at Hi*, when the flagship Corona came to the tee with balloon main topmast stays and bal teaa jib hung up and crossed at 11:10:33. H. F. -ippitt'i Quissetta came next at the windward <Bd of the line beside the flagship, with her U!!oon jib set. Mr. Brewster's Elmina was at *l>ls time down to leeward of the Nourmahal. •** »he close hauled up to the line and started •« the leeward end at 11:12:38. She then ••uled up with no jibtopsail on to go to wind ward of the Quissetta and the two got luffing. At 11:13 the order was: The Constitution first, <*~~~::ng spinnaker and balloon Jib. about eight •¦•ths ahead of the Columbia, which carried I".!,* 213 * sail; then the Navahoe. with similar "••••«. and footing well with the Columbia; ¦fc the cutters. !n the following order: The ce * ter . the Eelin. the Benta and the Isolde, with scbooner Corona in the rear, followed by the "•schooners Elmina and Quissetta, the last -wo Apparently about even.

About 12:13 the wind freshened, and soon it was blow ing perhaps fourteen m::"!> an hour. This was one of the things Barr was looking for when he took a late art. The Columbia came down on the fresher wind, and In several minutes was al most on even terms with the Constitution. On seeing her coming the Constitution hauled up a bit to keep the weather berth, and the Columbia did not provoke any luffing match, but went tor her lee. The Block Island mark was now near, and there was no use in having a luffing fight with the Constitution and thus giving better chances to the smaller cutters. The Elmina and the Qnl— lit, were now hav ing another luffing match, which took them far oft their course toward the land. The E'.mina then gybed her malnboom quickly to starboard and came hustling: for the Block Island mark, setting her spinnaker to port as she came. The Quissetta followed, making her gybe slowly and losing ground, while the Eimlr.a was romping for the mark. The Columbia was passing: the Constitution on her leeward side when at 12 33 •"« the Con stitution took In her spinnaker to prepare for her gybe before taking the mark. The Colum bia held to hers for perhaps a minute longer, in fact, till the Constitution's boom was going across, which it did at 12:37:4.". After shoving her spinnaker out of sight the Columbia gybed just to leeward of the Constitution's course for the mark. Her boom went over and she spun up for the mark from a position to leeward of the Constitution's bow. Barr got his sheets aft quickly but hung for a moment before the wind to let the Constitution take the mark fir?" in order that he might cut in between the mark and the Constitution. This he did, but he saw that as Rhodes had the best way on and would possess the leeward position he would have to get somewhere • lear of the Constitution's lee. Accordingly »he came close to the mark with a rush, went In stays as he circled round it and then shot off on the board trek. But Rhodes knew his own advantage and that Barr was try ins to escape the terrors of the leeward berth and he immediately spun around to starboard and laid his boat flat on Barr's weather side. THE CRUCIAL MOMENT. Here. then, was the chance of the Constitu tion. This was what all her friends had been waiting for. When the Columbia b*»at the Con stitution all the way to Newport from New- London on Thursday last, the Constitution's friends said that their boat got away in the lee ward berth, and that it was Barr's skill in wind splitting and blanketing that brought the defeat, and not the superior speed of the Co lumbia. Here, then, the positions were re versed, and the eighteen-mile beat began at this mark with everything in the Constitution's fa vor. Her club topsail was sitting far better than that of the Columbia, and she had the -¦• boat crushed under her lee. If she had the legs for it she could hold her there, and per haps eternally silence the Columbia's claim for a second cup defence. It was one of the most exciting moments of the whole season. The Constitution had the best way on and lapped up fast on the Columbia's weather side, but as Barr got his boat going he gave her a hard pull to pull out clear, and then, from a distance of perhaps two lengths to leeward, he began the I strugg!* that was intended to become instruc- I tive: and the lesson that he proposed to teach was this: that the fine drawn Columbia, with her narrower beam, and with her beam in the ; right place, not having it carried too far aft. as in the Constitution, was a better modelled boat for fast windward sailing than the Con stitution. The passengers and sailors of over forty steam yachts were craning their necks to see ¦what would happen. an<* at first the Constitu , tion eeemed to draw up on the smaller boat. She passed along faster till her mast, from the j press yacht's point of view, was just even with i that of the Columbia, and then the two sailed even for a little while and hope hung in the balance. Presently the mast of the Columbia was seen coming out a bit ahead and a piece of the mainsail was seen. Then the whole boat came In front, thougn to leeward. Then the Constitution came about and the Columbia went ! on a little and then came about to starboard j also, lapping upon the Constitution's weather quarter, pointing higher and outfootlng. It took j Barr Just about thirteen minutes to work out from an apparently fatal position and land his boat safely in the weather berth. The official timing at the first mark at the end of the thirteen mile run was: Constitution, I'>-3U:46; Columbia. 12:39:55. In the mean time the Independence had ranged herself about half a mile to the eastward of the mark and a little to leeward, and then started to ' work toward the West Island mark, a distance 'of eighteen miles to windward. Here the Inde pendence showed a grandly sitting mainsail, I but a club gaff topsail that bagged in the middle. Her new jib was apparently no better than the former one. with apparently j the same fault, which seemed to be due to a stretching of the bolt ro»e. *»• --.. At 1:44 the Constitution, having seen that she could not point up with the Columbia when both < were without -heir jlbtopsails. set her working '¦ jibtopsall to make a better pace on her more I leeward course. The peculiarity and ben*flt of I this race were that the two boats were always j in the came water, and consequently there were no flukes or favor* for either boat. At the were no flukes or favors for ei-her boat At the time t of turning th« first mark and on up to this part XEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. TUESDAY. JTLY 30. 1901. TH" DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EL RENo AND NEW York of the beating: th- win. I had sometime been up to fully twelve or fourteen miles an hour. Both the yacht* kept on their Ions: leg In the- port tack, and they went along the wind hauled considerably, letting them up to their course. At 2:10 the breeze had dropped considerably, and had hauled to northeast half north. This, with their tack in toward the land after round ins the Block Island mark, took them all the way to the windward mark off West Island, ex cept a short starboard tack about three minutes long thai was made to fetch the stakeboat. The Constitution did no better with the Co lumbia after she set her jibtopsall. though she may have been going fast through the water, a point that could not he ascertained from a lons distance in the rear. They were Retting up to the windward mark so fast that th* mark tug Unique had all she wanted to do to get the buoy laid at the right spot in time. At 2:23 the Constitution and the Columbia both came about together for the mark. The wind had dropped at this time to about nine miles an hour, and there was a little spatter of rain. As the Co lumbia neared the mark she ran up a bis reach ins: jlbtopsail in Stops, and as she turned the mark she broke this out. and having run into a better breeze came down for the finish line fairly flying through the water. Her time at the mark was 2:25:20. Tlje Constitution turned the mark at 2:27 : lit*. and set a similar reaching jlbtopsail. but the Columbia was safe, not only with her two minutes and ten seconds lead, but ilso h«-r forty-one and. on the start and also her time allowance of one minute and thirty three seconds. . The timings of th* oth«r cutters st the first mark were: Th» Hester. 12:10:10; th» Eeim. 12:51 _'<;. the Senta. 12:53:10, and the Isolds, 12:54:52. The schooners were timed at the first mark as follows: The Corona. 12:47:<M: th* El mina, 12:.*it»:.'!fi, and the Qulssetta. 12:91:3 d, Th-» Corona was timed at the Went Island mark at 3:10:45; the Savahoe, which came af'-r her. ai 3:11:15, The Elmina was timed here at 3:25:00. and the Qui.«s?tta at 3:44:30. The other cutters were here timed: The Hester. 3..'*.tf;00; the Senta. 3:40:50; the fc>iin. 3:41:50, and the Isolde. , 44 52 The Independence had evidently not been eased up to the mark by the wind that came near the Bhore. and she was beaded off by the ihan?t- The Quissetta partly shared the same bad luck and got put back worse than she aN ready was. The Independence, therefore, did not appear to have made anything on th* Co lumbia and the Constitution, and when sac cam* in as they were rounding she was a mile or more to leeward i ' the West Island mark. On t i*' run home the Constitution pained three sec onds on the Columbia, but the rare was never in doubt after the Columbia went ahead in the first part of the windward work, having the starting time and the time allowance behind her. CONSTITUTION TO BE ALTERED. W. Butler Duncan also said that he would not race the Constitution asaln until after her rig was altered. His intention is to take the vessel to the Herreshoff yards at Bristol and th«*re put in the spare steel mast, which is five feet longer in the masthead. He win not alter the canvas area at all, bat the higher masthead will give a better lead to the peak halyards. It is thought that with the present short masthead the peak halyards do not sufficiently hold up the sail to it? proper work and that it sags off. The topmast thai will go in the new mast will he shorter than the present one, bo that the same topsails will be used. This will require new standing rigging all around, and the orders will be given to have it prepared at once. The dates for the next races of the New-York Yacht Club are August 31 and September 2 and 4, and the postponed races will come oft on August 12 and 14. These dates are liable to be altered in case the Constitution is not ready, and ihey have been known to the press for a day. but the announcement of them has been held back at the request of Mr. Kane until those interested can be more certain of the gen eral convenience. The In lmpendence win not be in these races. J. Pierpont Morgan arrived here to-day wdhlle the race was in progress. He had telegraphed for the Corsair to meet him, but was disap pointed, bo he hired a small launch and caught the Columbia's tender out In the ocean. He then got aboard, and was present when the Columbia finished an undoubted winner by a. large margin. Mr Morgan was delighted to see bis old victor do so well, and as the Columbia crossed the finish line he g.it at the whistle rope on the Park City and nearly broke it off short as he saluted her. 'Hank" Halt says to night that his boat, the Independence, is going better now than »<he ever did, and he was much pleased at her work to-day. She joined the Columbia on the run home, waiting to let ward till the leader was abreast, and then filling away with a Jibtopsail set and beating her to the range of the finish line by a quarter of a mile. E. D. Morgan, manager of the Columbia, says to-night that the Independence and the Columbia will race here on August I**and 3. as scheduled, while the Constitution is undergoing alterations. A Howard Hinkle. the owner of the Senta. ha« been tryinir to find Measurer Hyslop to-night In order to have his newly Imported cutter meas ured, as well as the others. He says the race was close and believes that on a right measure men* his Senta. has won the cup that was sub scribed for by the owners of big yawls. The races on August 12 and 14 win be for all classes, with a special cup for the JXJ-footerK. The newly Imported yawl Caress did not enter to-day, ow ing to the news telegraphed from Philadelphia that the wife of the owner. Dr. W. Barton Hop kins, of Philadelphia, had suddenly died. The Vigilant went west to be overhauled and cleaned for the races here on Thursday and Saturday. The yawl Ailsa has been aground on the rocks off Goat Island for about twenty-four hours. She did not enter to-day on that account. The Columbia made the last leg of the course to-day at the rate of over thirteen knots an hour, six miles and a half In 20 minutes and 8 seconds, £he beat the Constitution 2 minute* M seconds, actual time, and 4 minutes 26 seconds, corrected time. Sbe has now beaten the Constitution five times. The schooner Elmina takes the schooner cup. beating the Quissetta by 22 minutes 31 sec onds, corrected time.

The New-York Tribune has begun an agitation of a poster tax, Intended as a source of revenue and also as a restriction of the privilege of cover- Ing every available wall or building with posters which disturb the nestaetlc sense of the travelling public. There in certainly Rood ground for action against some of the poster exhibits which are to be s»e»n In city or country, but there would Nj something of a protest against •. proposition 10 impose a tax en trSa advertising privilege. THE FRESH AIR FUND TWO HUNDRED CHILDREN SENT AWAY • YESTERDAY TO VARIOUS PLACES. More than two buadred tenement house children : —308 to be exact — went into the country yesterday to escape the stiain? beat. That was a good be- ; Rtrmrns- on the contract of. th* Tribune Fresh Air • Fund to send 1.2« poor children into the country ; this week. It is almost exactly one-sixth of the | total number. so the Fund kept up to the dally i average i* must maintain to accomplish it» task- ! It was a good, day to send away poor children. I for it was ju«t th« «ort of day that makes the I tenement houses, with their poor ventilation, like ¦ sweatboMs, sapping- the vitality of the children. } It made many people besides those who sweltered I In these "black holes" fed uncomfortable and stop \ to mop away the drops of perspiration which i trickled down their foreheads and cheeks. The cool of the night was chosen for the long '. railroad ride* of the stx parties of children. The [ earliest tT leave th* city was one hound for Ma- i lone, on the far side of the Adirondack*., which left ¦ the Grand Central Station at 6:3 p. m. People up In the northern part of New-York State last week i were using blankets and wishing for overcoats, so ! the twenty children who made up this party are : certain to fln«l a place where they can sleep in j comfort. They will he th*re by the time people are '•¦ reading this account of their departure, and ready : for a run in the fields after their sleep on the ; train. Those in Mr.lone who are to entertain these ' children are as follows: Mrs. Wade Pollock, Mrs. i Charles Sabin. Mrs. Samuel Williamson. Mrs. John I I. Gilbert. Marius Mssjsssi. Mrs. B. A. White. Mrs. j B. A. Whitney. Mrs. Wesley Hap*ood and Eleanor j L. M«rriaia. The party was invited through the : Rev. John A. Macintosh. With it went a "special." bound for Chasm Falls. Three hours later, at 9:30 o'clock, a whole bat- ! talion of children boarded trains on the Erie and t New-York Central railroads for ail night rides to } various points. They were as jolly as sleepy eyes ! would permit at the prospect of the two weeks* I outing before them. Tho*e who scrambled aboard the Erie train were ; goins to Wellsville, Corninp and sundry other points. The Corning party was the second to BJS there this season. For many years, through the indefatigable efforts of th-» Rev. N. E. Fuller. wh> i has been a warm friend of The Tribune Fresh Air j Fund all this lime, children have b^en made wol- ! come in Comingr. Now other Corning churches j than his arc becoming interested in the work. The Rev. Mr Fuller's party returned from Its two .v»ekr- outing last Thursday, and this party goes ! out upon the invitation of the Rev. Alfred J. Hut- j ton, of the Presbyterian Church.
