Everything Beady for Floating
Xeii^Boat To-day.
Bristol, R. 1.. April 10.— There will be launched
Just before sunset to-morrow from the Herres
hoff works, in this city, a i*)-foot composite fin
k?el sloop yacht which a syndicate of six prom
inent yachtsmen of the New-York Yacht Club
have had constructed for the defence of the
America's Cup against Sir Thomas Lipton's
third challenger. As the yacht moves slowly
down the ways Miss Nora Iselin, the daughter
of C. Oliver Iselin, the managing owner, will,
with the customary ceremonies, name her the
Reliance.
The Reliance is the sixth yacht which the
Herreshnffs have constructed for the defence of
the Cup. Three of their productions, the Vigi
lant, the Defender and the Columbia, have de
feated the British challengers, while two others,
the Colonia and the Constitution, did not prove
in the trying out process sufficiently reliable to
■warrant their selection for the honor.
The Reliance will have a severe test, for the
owner of the Columbia, proud of her record of
two successful contests for the Cup, will again
be on hand, while August Belmont, 'who con
trols the Constitution, is anxious to retrieve the
defeat by the Columbia two years ago.
Alxhouph the Reliance has been built in secret.
It Is known that her underbody is constructed
of Tobin bronze and her topsides of nickel steel.
It is also known that she is about 140 feet over
all. Just short of 00 feet on the waterline. about
20 feet deep, and I*4 ieet beam, and when fully
rigged she will be able to spread over 15,000
square feet of canvas.
The scene about the boatshops during the day
was a busy one. A great many men were hard
at v.-ork on The s=i>ar and fittings of the craft,
while other gangs were engaged in arranging
the cradle and the machinery for use to-mor
row. The fitting of the spars has been hurried
considerably, with the result that no time will
be lost in stepping the mast and putting on the
gear after the launching takes place.
It has been arranged to have at least three
flags on the yacht when she is launched, but.
owing to the narrow space between the deck
and the top of the door, they will not be raised
until after the boat is well out of the shop. ,
Arrangements will be made to protect the
Reliance from Injury by contact with other
•boats when she slides into the water. A great
fleet of craft will undoubtedly throng the har
bor and they will be requested to keep clear
CaT the line of the marine railway from which
the boat is to be launched.
If the reports were true that the workmen were
to receive ■ bonus for having the yacht completed
before April IS. they have certainly won it. for the
Reliance has been constructed in record time.
One hundred sad thirty-six days ago the keel was
laid. Subtract from this nineteen Sundays, and
it leaves ju?t IS days in which time the yacht's
Lull has been completed ready for launching.
Thirteen days after the keel was cast the keel
plates were in position. Eighteen days later fif
teen of the steel frames had been set up, and on
January 24, fifty-four working days after the keel
•was laid, the pectin* was began. The making of
the yacht 's sails was begun in December, so that
Mar taM complete sets are almost ready for her.
■while her steel mast and boom are ready to be put
in place as soon as she comes off the ways. Kx
perience is. of course, a prime factor in tv con
FUSE CAUSED ACCIDENT.
Shell Thai Burst lowa's Gvn Ex
ploded Minnie Too Soon.
p.— »■!« Fin.. April 10.— The investigation of
the explosion on the battleship lowa yesterday,
resulting In the death of three men and the seri
ous injury of four others, shows that it was
caused entirely by ■ defective Fhell fuse, which.
It is said, burned faster than was calculated. It
Is understood that the shell exploded fully sixty
seconds before it was timed to bo off.
An examination of the .ship this morning
F.hotvs that the bursted guns is beyond repair,
and that the 12-inch forward turret will have to
be repaired. A number of supporters are
Fprung. and parts of the deck will have to be
replaced where pieces of the heavy gun tore
through.
The funerals of the three men killed were held
this morning. They were buried in the National
Cemetery here with military honor, sailors from
all the ships of the squadron taking part. It is
understood that all the injured are out of dan
ger except First Class Seaman Paul Gougrht,
who lost an eye and is in a critical condition.

struction of a modern racing yacht, but in the
production of the Reliance the Herresholfa have
outdone themselves, for they have beaten the
building- record of both the Columbia and the
Constitution.
Nathaniel Greene HetreaboC, the designer of the
Reliance, who also designed the Defender, the
Vigilant, the Colonla. the Navahoe. the Columbia
and the Constitution, all ninety rooters, and the
smaller but fast yachts the Gloriana, the Wasp,
the Neola, the Weetamoe and many cithers, is a

engineer, who settled in Rhode Island in 1790, mar

leading shipbuilder of that State.
C. Oliver Iselin hfls become well known to
the public and to yachtsmen by his successful man
agement of the Cup defenders the Defender, the
Vigilant and the Columbia in their racefl against
The British challengers. Captain Charles !:irr
came across the Atlantic in the little Fife forty
footer Minerva. Since then his fame as a racing
skipper has become international. He sailed the

ATTEMPT TO BURN THE BOAT 7
Extra Precautions Taken to Guard the
Herreshoff Yards.
Bristol. R. L. April Indications that
twice In the last week attempts have been made
to burn the Herreshoff boat shops and the new
Cup defender Reliance have just come to light.
The matter was not reported to the police, but
extra precautions have been taken to guard the
property. Two years ago an attempt was made
to burn the boat shops and the yacht Constitu
tion, which was being built, and the would-be
incendiary was captured and subsequently was
declared insane. It is thought that the present
attempts have been due to a similar cause.
Apparently every effort has been made to keep (
the facts from becoming public. It appears,
however, that last Monday evening, 'he watch
man at the Herreshoff works found some gar
ments saturated with grease piled up near the
staging about the Reliance, and on top of the
pile was a lighted candle, which had burned
to within an inch of the refuse. The watchman
acted quickly and prevented a fire.
Steps were taken to guard against a recurrence
of such an experience, but on Tuesday night
another pile of refuse was found near the boat.
No attempt had been made to set fire to it. The
workmen are of the opinion that the second in
cident was only a matter of carelessness on the
part of some one about the shop.
LONG RACE FOR LIPTON YACHTS.
The Two Shamrocks to Sail Over a Course
of Forty-two Miles.
Weymouth, April H>. — It was decided to-night
that the course for to-morrow's race between
Shamrock I and Shamrock 111 shall be forty
two miles, seven miles from Weymouth to
Lulworth Cove, seven miles thence to the Sham
bles Lightship and thence roven miles home,
twice around , to complete the race. Shamrock
I will he allowed ten minutes if the wind is
fresh, and thirteen and a half minutes if it is
light.
Shamrock 111 has not yet been asked to nego
tiate a head sea, and the 'likelihood of a seaward
breeze to-morrow is welcomed, as it will give
an opportunity of seeinp how she will acquit
herself under su?h conditions.
The race to-morrow will be the Sirst between
the two boats for which prize money has been
offered to the .tews.
The start and finish of the yachts to-morrow
will be by gunfire. The course will be laid
around marks <>tn<ially measured off.
SHAMROCK II IN DANGER AGAIN.

Shamrock II was In danger from lire yesterday.

lining- tube was Inserted in that gun. and to-day it
is In use at the proving- grounds.
While the accident may have been due to the
premature explosion of the shell in the bore, such
a contingency is unlikely, as shells have on several
occasions broken up In bores of guns without any
other injury to the gun than the defacing of the
bore So far as the bureau is advised, all the
lowa's 12-inch shells are fitted with base covers
with ■ view to preventing a possible premature ex
plosion due to the action of powder eases
The Bureau of Navigation has sent telegrams of
sympathy to the families of the men killed and
wounded in the explosion.

New-York Nationals Show Scoring Ability —
Beat Columbia 11 to 1.
Columbia's baseball team made a rather poor
showing 1 ngalnst the New-York National League
nine at the Polo Grounds yesterday, the latter win
ning by the score of 11 !to 1. The base running of
the professionals was the feature, the work of
Mertcs being particularly good. In the fourth
Inning Tyler's error on Taylor's hit brought in
three men on bases and allowed Taylor to reach
third. This inning was productive of seven runs
for New-York. Columbia made its only run in the
eighth Inning;, on Tyler's double and Taber's single.

MANY RODE IN PARKS AND ROADS.
Automobile Drivers and Bicyclers Out in
Force Yesterday.
The weather yesterday was the best so far this
month for a ride on a bicycle or automobile. Thou
sands of riders were out, and those who rode on the
suburban roads reported them to be fast, but a
trifle soft In placrs.
The fact that many business place* closed yes
terday gave opportunity to many to pass a pleas
ant afternoon at their favorite pastime. Numerous
riders crossed the bridge all day. and the direction
most of them took Indicated that they were head
ing for the cycle path. The bridge Is getting more
popular each day for automobile drivers, and sev
eral ponderous cars made the trip over It yester
day. The cycle path Is always the ideal spot for
wheelmen to take a long fine ride, and the num
ber on it yesterday would delight all lovers of the
sport who could have watched the merriment that
showed on each rider's face as he flew along. Th*»
roadway beside the path was well occupied with
automobiles.
Many riders of the wheel and automobile opera-
CAPTATN CTTA-RLK3 BARR.
ton took a rid« throunrh Prospect Park. In this
city much wheeling and automobiling was done.
In Fifth-aye. more automobiles were to be seen
than usual, and this is saying a great deal. «'y !i::tr
was also popular in the avenu*>. Mad'r-'on-ave.,
Riverside Drive and Central Park were well
patronized.
TWO SPEED CHAINLESS BICYCLE.
If one Washes to get an id^a of th« improvements
that have been made In bicycles this year It w<vil<l
bo well to visit some of the salesrooms. Not many
yean ago it was thought that any Improvements
on bicycles would be hard to make, but since then
the coasting brake and the chalnless wheel have
come Into the field.
In spite of these improvements there are new de
vices to bo seen on the Columbia wheel this year
that should gladden the heart of every rider. The
principal one is the two-speed gear device on the
chain! The beauty of this improvement is that
one riding with a 77 gear can change it to a 105 or
whatever other gear his wheel carries by the
mere movement of the foot on the pedals without
dismounting. This will be found extremely en
joyable to a rider, who can use the small gear
going up the hill, and when at the top put on
the larger. The Columbia spring fork is another
device that will be found extremely valuable on
this year's wheel, especially among riders of much
avoirdupois. A spring is placed on each fork close
to the axle of the wheel, and by this means tha
jars and jolts are lessened.
AUTOMOBILE NOTES.
The tests for the automobiles that will represent
this country in the International cup race are set
for to- lay. It is niaaslllltl that a postponement will
be -made oa account of the Matheson cars, which
art :.• 1 yet completed.
The meeting of the new dealers' association.
which was set for yertrrday at the office of tho
Mobile Company el America, was adjourned to
Thnraday evening, bican— the day was Good
Friday, whlea was overlooked when the date was
set. The constitution, which will probably be
adopted ns drawn up, calls for government of the
tion by an executive committee of seven.
eai b year. Th< committee will elect a
president two vlce-pni aidents and a secretary
treasurer. Any member of the committee who
falls to appear for three eoasecattva meetings of
the committee forfeits his membership. The ob
i..-t of the association is announced In the con
stltution to be tbe mutual protection of its mem
bers, and the public.
It Is said that Police Commissioner Greene is
