OLD DEFENDER'S RACE. COLUMBIA BEATS CONSTITU TION IN FAIR TRIAL. CLEARLY OUTSAILS THE NEW YACHT 45D WINS BY OVER FOUR MINUTES. IBT TELEGRAPH TO THE TRIBUNE-] Man— ' R- I- Aug. -- In the first official JaTrace heM by the New-York Yacht Club off SxFßort to-day the intended defender Con .Htntir.n suffered another serious defeat at the ILisof the former Cup defender, the Columbia. aT victor of 1899. In some few flukes and igtapawK the Columbia has at times been left fceyad in w* l'e M airs a 8 are needed for suture yachts, but she now stands as a js-ftctically unbeaten boat, having never been defeated in a fresh breeze except through ac- Cliesi to her rigging. Her victory to-day was * Ifcht air - nd when her opponent was tuned CP to the point at which neither her designer, jja-aper. skipper nor owners had anything to gofgttit in the way of further improvement. Vhese official trials have been prepared for a3 summer, and, naturally, both yachts came to tie starting li»je with roseate hopes and in the pink °- perfection. Seeing that the Con stitution always had over a minute of time tUewance to give the Columbia, and yet was not once in the lead, it may be paid that she practically was never in the race, from start to finish. Barr got the best of the start, and led out into the ocean at a pace end with a high pointing course which 'eft no doubt as to the result of the windward work. Soon after the Mart it was clear that the only hope of the Constitution was to make up in running what she would lose in windward work. Yet. her ability to give the flaw allowance over sad above a finish on even terms was doubted by the mast sanguine. The race was a slow and gradual proof that the narrow and graceful lines of the older boat have not been improved upon in that swelling to greater beam that the Constitution exhibits In the attempt to get greater sail carrying power. The Colombia looked like a thoroughbred all the way. and it was remarked that when the Con stitution swung her great side high in the air and sagged to leeward she M not In the same refined and scientific class. The beat out was all one sided, and so was the run back in. though in the latter course there were matters connected with the trim of the Constitution which, as told In this story, may be open to such correction and improvement as may im prove her chances in the trial races still to come. MANY PLEASURE YACHTS WITNESS RACE The breeze In Newport Bay this morning did act promise much for the racing outside, but It was found later on that the ocean wind was much better than in the harbor. A great many of the larger steam yachts had come to New port to witness the trials, and among those that followed the racers on the ocean were Henry Walter's Nada. the schooner Emerald, the three masted Sultana. Colonel J. J. Aster's Nounnahal. the Josephine, owned by P. A. B. Widener; E. C. Benedict's" Oneida. and John Q. Herreshoff's Eugenia; tile Corsair, with J. p. Morgan on board; the big auxiliary schooner Blsa (formerly the Black Pearl), the Indolent, the Catina, the auxiliary brigantine Aloha, the White Heather and many others. The Columbia was prompt in getting her sails hoisted, and with her largest gaff topsail set She rounded Fort Adams at 10:20. bound out. ar.d with slackened sheets. The Constitution let go her moorings five minutes later, and, after breaking out foresail and jib. paid off into the port tack to follow out to the lightship. When clear of Brenton's Reef, the two big 90-footers found a long roll coming in from the south- Eoutheast, and the wind was coming southeast by east, moving at the rate of five miles an hour. Instead of using the steam yacht Colonia as *'as first intended, the race committee went aboard the steam yacht Sultana, owned by John R. Drexel. This boat now came out. followed by the large oceaa tug Coastwise, which was Intended to be used to set out the windward •rark. The tug Unique was also present, with a number of club members who paid for their passage. Just then the Columbia came past the press yacht Wanda at a good speed and with her canvas showing the evidences of con tinuous care. Herbert Leeds was with Mr. and Mrs. E. D. Morgan and some friends, who were tittlng at the companionway. When the Ccr.stitution circled about her new mainsail sepmort to have been left as it was last seen 00 Oyster Bay, and It had about the same bag in 11 as the Shamrock's has, neither of these boats having a mainsail which -its with ¦uch drumhead flatness as that of the Columbia, At about 11 -jo the committee sent up the red -*£, "Letter B," meaning that the coarse would "* to windward and return, and five minutes later the course signals 'D C S" were sent up. leaning that th* fifteen mile beat would be on a course south-southeast. On the Constitution was Been Nat Herreshoff standing beside Skip- Per Rhodes, as th? yachts passed. The 11:30 preparatory pan was fired and the two yachts **gan Jockeying for positions. When the 11:3* warning signal was given, the Columbia was fol lowing the Constitution en the port tack an<* on the big boat's weather quarter. Rhodes then wanted to go about, but Barr evidently refused to let him do bo. He held his boat still on the Port tack, and Rhodes had no room to get out ** the same tack. He did not even get up to fcead wind, but lay there still, partly on the Port tack til! Barr passed. Then the Columbia went intr, the starboard tack and beaded back toward the line, turning close round the com mittee boat. The Constitution then stepped in between the Columbia and the Sultana, and both vessels crossed the line too soon. The re **ll signal was given and both turned back to CPO *« again, the Constitution paying off to lee ward for her gybe and the Columbia making ¦"¦ turn nearer the windward end. As both *aftg came back across the line at the right tone, the Columbia was ahead and to windward. «ejr were officially timed: gM>W« 11-41-lfi The Columbia took a little starboard tack to *J«*»ard of the lightship and then headed •*T southerly on the port tack, which was the "••'eg and almost the only leg of the so-called ¦"¦» to th- windward mark.

REPORT THAT HE WILL NOT HAVE A CONFERENCE WITH KING EDWARD. i GOOD RELATIONS MAINTAINED— PRINCE CHUN'S DELAY— BOER LEADERS BUST. (Copyright; 1901: By Th« New-York Tribune.) tBT CABLE to IBS TTUBUXB.] London, Sept. 1, 1 a. m.— movements and relations of the royal figures on the European ; stage make up the bulk of the news at midnight. L It Is reported from Copenhagen that the Czar I and King- Kdward will not meet at Fredens | borg. as has been previously announced. If ¦ this rumor be confirmed, it will not be proof i that anything has pone amiss, but merely that ¦ It has been inconvenient to shorten the King's stay at Homburg and impracticable to alter the Czar's engagement at Dantzic. The Czar, while on good terms with the King and the German • Emperor, must consider the bearings of the I dual alliance and give preference to France In | ceremonial visits. He i«. not likely to single out i England for a deliberate affront, and there is ' no evidence that he intends to do so. The Russian press is more hostile to Germany : than to England, and this is an indication that the German Emperor rather than Edward VII would be slighted if the Czar were looking for an opportunity to discriminate against either power. The King's desire to derive all possible benefit . from the waters at Homburg will be a natural explanation if the two sovereigns do not meet at Kredensborg. The kowtow hitch over Prince Chun's mis sion Is explained as due to royal sensitiveness. Prince ("him is indifferent to the feelings of pubordJnates. and considers it beneath the dig nity of a Chinese prince to kowtow himself. This Is a subtle appeal to the German Emperor's sense of royal privilege, and may result In a special dispensation relieving Prince Chun from the humiliating function of prostration and genuflection, and arranging a suitable substi tute. The original tragedy, of the Peking embassies plays down to the level of comic opera in the due course of time. "Topsyturvydom"* is still the word that de scribes South Africa. "While General French has been driving the guerillas to the north of the Orange River. Scheeper's commando seems to have bolted In the opposite direction and to have got within striking distance of the south coast of Cape Colony, two hundred miles east of Cape Town.

I. N. F. SAMPSON A VERY SICK MAN. ALARMING REPORTS FROM LAKE SUNA PEE ABOUT THE ADMIRAL. IBT TELEGHAPW TO TTIF TRFBrVE.) Boston, Aug. 31. — A special from Lake Suna pee, N. H., says: "Admiral Sampson Is a very sick man." That is the verdict not only of the summer tourists who are now on their way home, but of tho physicians who lrom time to tin.c have quietly made the journey from Boston si-d Portsmouth to attend the distinguished visitor. They railed on him at the Burkeshaven H'-ail Hotei, and when they left shook their heads omin>->usiy. The physicians al 1 refuse to talk to the cor respondents. One surgeon f : om the Portsmouth Navy Yard said: 'The admiral Is dflng as well as can be expected," and such a report from the. sickroom can he easily translated. When Admiral Sampson arrived with his de voted wife, it was tirn.ly expected the change would result in a marked improvement in his condition. He was far from being a well man v.hen he came, but from time to time, instead of phorvinc a :y improvement, his condition has grown steadily worse It was over a week apo that the admiral was aeen by the townsfolk for the first time. He was driver: into th» village, but became ho weak that a hurtif-d return \<- us made to the hotel. Several physicians, were promptly summoned, hut th^re was little they could do except ease th<" ,'idmira! from pain. The change in his condition If pathetic. He cannot movf even the shortest diHtance with out assistance. Mrs. Sampson is invariably at his Hide, and seems to anticipate his slightest wish. He acts like one who has not the slight est interest in life. He is said to he unable to walk more than a few feet, and his eyes lack lustre, whtlo hifi face 1b pallid— the color of parchmenr. Th<* admiral and those who surround hhn have, taken every precaution to conceal his condition even from those who live in the bOteL People who inquire for him are all given the tame re ply: "The admiral Is very well and resting, but he must deny himnelf to visitor;-." JOHN HOPPER BIER FROM RABIES. HE WAS BITTEN BY A STRANGE DOC, IN HIS BARN THREE AND A HALF MONTHS AGO. Hackensack, K. J.. Aug. 31 . (Special).— John Hopper, a wealthy man. living en the Hopper estate on the Pollifly Road, died this afternoon from hydrophobia. The announcement greatly shocked his many -friends here. Mr. Hopper had been on the streets Thursday afternoon. Three and a half months ago Mr. Hopper was bitten by a strange dog that had entered his barn in the night and was found asleep In the manger. As Mr. Hopper reached over to get some eggs the dog jumped at him, biting his upper lip badly. It was not thought that the dog was mad, but Mr. Hopper had the wound thoroughly cauterized by Dr. St. John. Last Thursday morning Mr. Hopper, while washing his hands and face, was suddenly seized with a spasm of the throat muscles. He said to the coachman: "I believe that Is the symptom of hydrophobia." • Dr. St. John and Dr. Swayze scarcely left Mr. Hopper's side after they learned of this attack, and Dr. Carlos F. Macdonald was summoned from New-York, but the symptoms developed rapidly, and the hydrophobia beame pro nounced early this morning. Spasm followed spasm, and death came as a relief to the victim. Mr. - Hopper belonged to one of Bergen County's oldest families. The Hopper home etead, still In fine condition, was built before the Revolution. He was a bachelor, sixty-five years old, and lived with his ulster and his cousin. Miss Annie Berdan. He was a recognized "first nlghter" at New- York theatres, and was a lav ish entertainer. He was a nephew of the late Judge John Hopper, of Paterson, after whom he was named. His father was one of the famous horsebreedera of his day, having a private track on his farm. ... - - . • THE START FOR THE FUTURITY. NO. 5 IS YANKEE, THE WINNER.

Th*» pur chase of the Danish group by the United States Government may be the wisest possible measure for anticipating his enterprise and avoiding an open challenge of the Monroe Doctrine. "The Times" has a dismal leader on the oppo sition offered by Russia to the opening of the Quetta-Nushkl route between India and Persia. This route avoids Afghan territory and passes through Belstan to rtlrjand and Kerman. and is a shorter and safer channel of trade between India and the commercial centres of Eastern Persia than the ordinary Bandar-Abbas route. Russia, having acquired effective control over the customs service of Persia by virtue of a loan contracted last year, Is offering strenuous resistance to the development of traffic by the new route. Indian traders are convinced that Persia is virtually in the Russian sphere of in fluence, and that British commerce will be blocked and paralyzed. "The Times" considers the decline of British trade in that quarter a natural consequence of the inaction of the gov ernment when it might have been possible to secure a loan from London capitalists and avoid arming Russia with fresh resources for extend ing her influence over Persia. It urges the ne cessity of more resolute British statesmanship, but clearly is not hopeful that anything can be done. The British Foreign Office has been fortu nate in having few advantages taken by rival powers of the opportunity offered by the South African war. It owes its immunity from at tacks mainly to the pacific purposes of the Czar and to the close relations of the British royal family with the Continental- courts. The block ing of the Persian trade route is not a large gain for Russia. No progress has been made toward a solution of the problem of diplomatic ritual involved in the genuflection and prostration of the Chinese mission before the German throne in expiation of the Peking outrage.

These changes are that on the bidding a deposit of only $UIM,uOO cash or a certified check to that amount shall be required. with an additional deposit of $300.01i0 on the obtaining of the contract, and also that instead of 10 per cent being deducted every month from the estimates until the contract shall be fin ished. 10 per cent shall be deducted until fRHfcOOO is held back, thus leaving a total re serve of $1,250,000. This amount is to be paid In five annual payments, beginning immediately upon the completion of the contract. There is also a change in the matter of paving. Mr. Barden will test three kinds of paving ma terial for streets on which there is heavy traf- , flc, sections being paved with vitrified brick, granite blocks and Medina sandstone, the one lasting the best to be selected.

CASTA SECOND AND BARRON THIRD— PERFECT COXPfTIONS AKD 810 CROWD FOR THE GREAT RACE. John E. Maddens Hanover — Correction eort Tankee yesterday won the classic Futurity, at Sheepshead Bay, fn the presence of twenty-five thousand cheering spectators, in the fastest tima> j on record for the celebrated race. The race was another demonstration of fhe> j oft proved fact that nothing on this terrestrial ; globe is more uncertain than horseractng. tar , far away in the rear— so far away that many ¦ of the spectators did not even see him finish— ¦ galloped Nasturtium, the fine, powerful Water ; cress colt for which William C. Whitney paid) somewhere between $50,000 and $75,000 with) the definite purpose of training him for fh* Futurity and of winning that event with ntm. For all that, a fine colt, bred in the niiiulsl and son of one of the greatest racehorses eves 1 foaled in this or any other country, waa tte winner, and incidentally confirmed the Judg~ ¦ ment of his owner in paying $20,000 for him &m I a yearling. Many wise turfmen shook their heads wbni | Mr. Madden paid this lr.rge sura for the sea eft i Hanover, and. In view of the many, many risks. : that attend the life and training of thorough j breds. it took a deal of courage on Mr. Maddens) ; part to risk that sum on an equine infant, bo*. : the risk has been rewarded, for Yankee won* $36,910 for his owner yesterday, or more thjuS $16,000 above the price paid for him. The big stake, the richest fixture on the Anmvw | lean turf, was worth this year a total of $48,910. | and of this »urn the Albemarle Stable receives $4,166 tJ6 for Lux Casta's second, and John Daly $2,083 34 for Barron's third. Morris & Younaj j get $2,000 as nominators of the winner, the es-. , tate cf Marcus Daly $1,250 for entering L«ra i Casta. and J. B. Haggln $500 as the nominates) j of r.arroo, the third horse. Not since 1885 has i the Futurity been so well worth winning. I» : that year it amounted to a total of $53,190. Last year the total value of the stake that BaUyhoo> Bey won was $33,580. The time of the race. 1:091-5. speaks for itseltt The conditions were perfection, and no Fu | turity winner ever covered the course so fast. ; And yet what of Nasturtium, the grand colt upo» whose chances so many hopes were built, who. with his stable mate, Kirg Hanover, was always a strong favorite tn the betting, and who waa ! nsver for an instant in the breathless strugg!» j for the rich prise and greater glory? It appears that the race, splendidly contested and brilliant ly won as it waa. showed absolutely nothing as to the merits of this costly colt. When the starter's flag fell every horse was in line, and It locked to be a perfect start. The son of Water. c ress, however, was apparently not well into his stride At any rate, within a few yards the rest t tr.e n>ld had « **• him two lengths behind, and had c!osed tn ahead of him so compactly that . he never had an opportunity to gret through, and ; Turner, when he saw that the case was hopeless. • wlsel> eased him up at th<? turn. If anybody is to blame it is the jockey, but the case appeared to be one of bad racing luck, pure and simple. No Futurity was ever run under finer condi tions. The day was apparently sliced out of the Indian summer bo<]'.ly and brought forward six weeks or so. The air was soft and the sua mild and grateful, while a cool breeze blew in from the sea over the white sails of scores of vessels, that could be seen afar off from tha top of the grandstand. The crowd waa rather late In arriving, but ¦when it came it came with a rush. At noon the grandstand and the lawns were as quiet as a. village churchyard, but two hours later not a seat was to be had within the whole spacious^ lnclosure. Hour after hour the horde pouredi In — horsemen, brokers, bankers, touts, clerks., mechanics, clubmen, society folk from New port, Southampton or the mountains — all bent upon seeing the famous contest between the princes of the thoroughbred world, and most of, them Intent upon exercising their skill at plck^ Ing the winning horse. Just as big crowds have been at the beauttfaf 4 home of the Coney Island Jockey Club before* but no throng more representative of the wealth, and fashion of this city and its environs ever assembled at a racetrack. It was notable that, a goodly number of the thousands were of the sort not numbered among the regulars. Daintily gowned women and escorts no less Ignorant of horse racing than themselves^ strolled about the lawns or gathered In the* clubhouse boxes by hundreds, while men of wealth and Influence in tfce weightiest affair*. of the city were to be seen on every hand. Among the better kno*rn men to b« met witlk In the clubhouse or the paddoclt were the fol lowing: August Belmont. Perry Belmont, James ; R. Keene. J. G. Follansbee. John Sanford, WUI | lam C.

Of course, all talk centred on the big racew and comment, gossip and rumor were busy with the various candidates from the moment the gates opened. It was generally admitted that In the light of past performances Nasturtium's chances looked the brightest. Just how much the public judgment was affected by the fact that a record price had been paid by Mr. Whit ney for the colt it is impossible to say. but there was never any doubt that the Whitney stable would go to the post a strong first choice. Every eye was anxiously directed to the official board while the first three races were being run, tat none of the candidates for the Futurity were withdrawn until the third race. Then the man with the chalk wrote the name of Goktanitta among the scratches. This caused little sur prise, as It was thought this Meddler colt, who was to carry the top weight of 131 pounds, waa overburdened. It was. moreover.
