The talk then became more general, until a

"But who would expect that much wind in

of the Erin, just before Ere made her berth.
Net long after he bade his guests goodby at

a hearty handshake and a smiling word •' hope.
As the steamer started away there were parting

The Erin put out to sea from Bandy Hook in

with a great red bunch of gladioli on the end

There can be no question that yesterday's
race confirms greatly the confidence felt by
American yachtsmen after the fluke of Thurs
day that the Reliance would successfully defend

ATvXIOUS MOMENTS FOR AMERICANS.
All the Fame, there were about ninety anxious
Klnsten for th* partisans of the American
yacht. They were the first ninety minutes of
the race, when it appeared that the Shamrock
was a little more than holding her own. Do
what he would, Barr could not hold the Reliance
up to the wind as closely as Wringe held the
dainty Shamrock, and if the rest of the beat to
the mark had told the same story Sir Thomas's
colors would undoubtedly have been to the fore
at the end of the thraeh to windward and his
boat would have had a good fighting chance to
draw first blood.
Colonel Watterson. however, was not on hand
to furnish variety, but his place was well taken
by a member of the crew named Flux. As
usual, in the excitement of a race, the enthusi
asts invaded the forecastle deck, and, as usual,
they paid for the privilege. Seaman Flux
hastened among .hem. Stooping low and craft
ily, under between each pair of wide apart,
firmly planted boots, he made a mark of chalk.
The:- he returned with a box, and collected the
tolls due the forecastle inhabitant* from each
colossus of a chalk mark. "Tim" "Woodruff
came down with $2: Charles R. Flint gave ?2
also, and Colonel Neil. The Earl of Shaftes
bury gave So. There were compensations in
SIXG FOR LTPTOX AT LUNCHEON.
Luncheon was served while the racers were
tacking on even terms for the ouier mark, and
was a jolly affair Sir Thomas sat with the
Countess of Shaftesbury and Mrs. Sherman-
Crawford on either side, and was gTeeted with
the Llpton version of "Mr. Dooi^y," lustily sung
by all present. He responded with a little
speech. After luncheon interest concentrated
entirely on the race.
Many yachting: experts who were members of
the party talked about the race afterward.
Thomas L. Watson, fleet captain of the Larch
ir.ont Yacht Club, said:
Sir Thomas is the gamest sportsman who ever
carr.e here, and every American yachtsman likes
to have such a competitor come here. Still, I
think the Sh&rrrTK may yet have a chance
under other conditions, to let him be other than
a carr.e lc?er
Colonel D. F. D. Neill, of the Royal Clyde
Yacht Club, said:
"We ar» not beaten till the end of the last
race. I have not given up hope by any means."
Cornn- adore Robert H. Todd. of the Atlantic
Yacht Club, said:
"I believe that the Shamrock is a good boat,
and will give ar. excellent account of herself be
fore the races are over."
Walter G. Kirby. Editor of "The Yachting
World," of London, said:
"I thought Shamrock 111 better than any
previous challenger. Bu* Herreshcff. aided by
Barr, has produced another wonder. He has

LESS TIME TO SHAMROCK.
Remeasurement To-morrow to In
clude Anchor and Chain.
The Shamrock sailed the race yesterday subject
to a rerr.easureme-.t which is to take place to
morrow, to see hew much less time allowance she
will be entitled to on account of having to carry
the anchor and chain which «he did not have on
board when measured before and when sailing the
race on Thursday.
On Friday the managers of the Shamrock found
that she had not baa on board the anchor and
chain which are required by the rules, and so in
formed Mr Iselir. ar.d the regatta committee. As
it was evident that the error arose from an over
eight, It was decided to sail the race yesterday and
to make all due allowances in time after the re
measurement to-morrow, when the anchor and
chain will be added. Nobody aboard either yacht
would discuss the measurement of the Shamrock
with her anchor aid chain aboard yesterday.
Sir Thomas said, however: "'lt was all an over

JOY ON THE MONMOUTH.
YACHT CLUB'S MEN GLAD.
Sure Now That the Cup Is Safe, but
Will See Next Race.
No happier crowd of yachting enthusiasts went
to the race yesterday than that composed of
members of the New-York Yacht Club and their
friends on the steamer Monmouth, numbering
nearly a thousand. From the time the steamer
left the Rector-st. pier, at 9:15 a. m.. until the
crowd trooped off the pier, at 5 p. m.. to the
strains of "Mr. Dooley," played by the Ttb Regi
ment Band, the men and women of the Mon
mouth crowd enjoyed the outing thoroughly.
Most of the eld timers declared that they never
had met pieasanter weather conditions for a
race, and never had seen a finer international
Most members of the club on the beat went
prepared to see the Shamrock beaten decisively.
on account of Thursday's performance, and their
hearts were In their mouths for the first hour
after the race wa3 started. The Monmouth was
kept to the east of the racers and as near aa
she dared to go, and the people of the steamer
had a perfect view of the struggle, in which the
Shamrock seemed to be having a shade the bet
ter of it in the windward work. When the Re- j
liance turned away from her rival It "vas the j
general opinion on the Monmouth that Captain
Barr had been forced to change his course, and j
there was surprise expressed that the Shamrock j
did not Immediately follow on the pert tack.
It was no: until near 1 p. m.. when the Re
liance In turn forced the Shamrock tn tack, that
the experts on the Monrcouth were sure the Re- j
liance had maJe a good gain In the long beat i
toward the Jersey shore. Later, when both
boats were going together on the starboard tack,
the Monmouth was kept on a line with them for
a mile, the patriots on the steamer keeping up a
succession of cheers, vhiie the Reliance was
seen to increase her lead rapidly. White haired
men waved their on the steamer and
laughed and shouted like boys when the Re
liance, compelled the Shamrock to tack twice to
her once and increased. the lead.
VETERANS SAY THE CUP IS SAFE.
•The jig is up. Sir Thomas!" they shouted.
"You never will lift that Cup!'"
Then en to the end of the race it became a
matter for speculation as to how many minutes
the Reliance would win by, in add.t.or. to her
time allowance. The drift home xvas watched
with much satisfaction, and the opinion was
freely expressed that even if the Shamrock
: could get around the outer mark first, the Re
' liance could win a race with her bigger sails n
running before the wind.
After the yacht race was over the Monmouth

Kanawha crossed and recro«ed the bows of the
Monmouth three times, throwing as much wash
; as possible at the bigger boat, and then leaving
her in the lurch. Frank Gould's yacht, the
: Helenlta, kept abreast of the Monmouth in a
: tantalizing way for miles, and then went across
i lots ahead when the Monmouth was ob.iged to

while the Vamoose, which, Tiad been playing
pranks with some of the slower boats in the
rear, suddenly skipped past the Monmouth.
which was being "hooked up" by the engineer
for all she was worth.
INTEREST IN TRIANGULAR RACE.
Many of. the enthusiasts on the Monrr.outh de
clared on the way home that the result of the
present series of races for the Americas Cup
was a foregone conclusion, and they drank
hearty bumpers to "the Reliance, the test boat
ever built." At the same time they declared
that nothing except death would prevent them
from seeing the triangular race on Tuesday, m
which, by a bare possibility, they said, the
Shamrock might make a tetter showing.
Colonel Anpleton and Lieutenant Colonel Klpp
of the 7th Regiment were guests on the Mon
mouth, in compass with General W;lUam S.
Worth and H. H. Ho.lister. who acknowledged
having trained under Kipp when he was captain
or the Fourth Company, In the regiment. So
many other men on the boat greeted the officer*
as old members of the 7th that Colo.- el "Dan"
remarked with a smile that he could almost
muster a regiment of the 7th's veterans aboard.
"Do you know." said Colonel Appleton. as the
Monmouth was passing the Erin on the run
from the outer mark. "I can't feel a bit sorry fcr
Sir Thomas, although I like him immensely as
a man, and know that he must be feeling sore
at the way the Shamrock is being beaten to
day. I think it's good for a man of his sport
ing blood to be beaten this way. He'll have to
keep trying, and we'll see more of him."
"I've see almost all of these international
yacht races," said Lieutenant Colonel K;pp.
"and I have seldom seen one -oar more superior
to the other than the Re a nee eve - the am

BLANK SHUTS ON COURSE.
Revenue Cutters Strict in Clearing
Way for Racers.
The revenue cutters policing the course yes
terday had a larger task than on Thursday ow
ing to the increase in the number of boats in
the observation fleet, but the strict enforcement
of the side line rules at the previous race, and
the Imposition of special restrictions on one or
two of the most disorderly, seemed to have had
a jrood effect on the skippers of the fleet. Com
paratively few attempts to erase the lines were
made. These few were promptly attended to.
and some blank shots were fired by revenue
cutters to enforce orders. In only one case did
an excursion boat get near enough to the racers
to threaten them seriously.
The landing at St. George was crowded with
persons who expected to go on the cutters, and
the tugs which acted as ferries were busy from
7 o'clock on. When the cuttei headed for the
lightship at 9 o'clock, it seemed to those on the
first boats that there were still many passen
gers waiting on the dock, who did not secure
the coveted places on the boats. One tug fol
lowed the Gresham for some distance down the
harbor, and seemed to be trying to persuade
her to take some of the leftovers on board, but
the Gresham would not stop, and the tug start
ed back for the landing with her load undimin
At the lightship the cutters were delayed for
some time by a failure on the part of some one
to announce to them the change in the course,
and it was only after considerable signalling
that the true state of affairs was learned and
the cutters proceeded to the starting line.
Considerable amusement was caused by the
attempt of the commander of a handsome black
yacht, the AU"ina. to secure a cony of the sig
nal code. Early in the day the yacht hailed
the Tuscarora, and isked permission to cross
the course and get a copy from the Gresham.
saying that the boy with a copy had not
showed up." The permission was granted, and
the incident forgotten, until it was found, two
hours later, that the Alvina was travelling
from yacht to yacht in a search for the valuable
information. At last accounts the Alvina had
not secured a copy.
The policing of the course was fully as effec
tive as at the previous race. Every vessel that
approached the lines waß greeted by hoarse
toots, those who persevered woaje peremptorily
ordered to move back, and in one or two in
stances continued disobedience brought a
blank shot from the six-pounder forward on
the nearest cutter.
At about the time that the yachts were round
ing the stakeboat, one of the excursion steam
era, the Edmund Butler, broke through the line.
and got so near the racers as to risk serious
interference with their manreuvres. The Mirage,
owned by Cornelius v'anderbilt. which actei as
a scout, messenger bey and 'mailed fist" for the
Tuscarora, was sent in hot pursuit. The in
truder was driven off. its name and the name
of the captain taken, and dark hints were
dropped by the officers as to the things that
would happen after the insubordination of rhe
boat should be reported. Otherwise the course
was remarkably clear of all interference. The
cotters returned to St. George and landed their
passengers at about 6 o'clock.

the places wh-re bettors gather. Several In
significant bets of 7 to 2 that the Shamrode
would win one race were made In a hotel o»
Broadway near Forty-second-st.
A professional sporting man, who may gen
erally be found at the Hoffman House, said
last night: "There is a lot of Shamrock money
here that has been sent from abroad, but It ha*
not come out yet in any great quantities. It '•
in the hands of a commission man, who has been
waiting to see which way the wind was blow
ing. Apparently It Isn't blowing the Sham
rock's way, and the fluke and flr»: race show.
Had the Shamrock won yesterday's race, a tot
of English money would have come out. If Xbm
Shamrock wins the next race you will see sora*

There was little betting in "Wall Street yes
terday morning on the yachts. The ruling odds
were 3 1 * to 1. although a few small wagers wer*
recorded at 4 and even 5 to 1. Hardly any
Shamrock money was in slzht. At the odds of
3*i to 1. F. H. Brooks, who has been among the
more prominent bettors in the Street on the
races, placed $1,000 on the Reliance. Further.
he announced that be was ready to place at
least half a dozen bets of $I<V> to tl9 that
Shamrock 111 would win one race. He found M
takers, although up to yesterday morning sev
eral bets had been made at even money that th<»
challenger would win one race. As Illustrating
the Lick of faith in the Shamrock's friends,
even offers of 1 to 4 went begging.
These bets and offers were made before th»
race was started. Just before the close of busi
ness Mr. Brooks made a bet wit* F. M Lock
wood & Co. of $300 to $10" > on the Reliance.
The Interest taken in the race by Wall Street
men yesterday was even greater than on Thurs
day. On that day it seemed as if a large pro
portion of the traders and brokers was absent
from the financial district, but yesterday, being:
a half holiday. Wall Street seemed almost de
serted. Those who could not spare the whole
day away from business hurried off at th«»
earliest possible moment, so as to be present at
the finish, and within half an hour after th«»
market closed at noon the financial district wore
almost a Sunday appearance.
The interest shown was intense, and most men
one met seemed a'! to have one desire, and that
was for the Shamrock's victory. This wish, they
carefully explained — fearing, perhaps, to be ac
cused of i lack of patriotism — was due to ad
miration for Sir Thomas Lipton's sporting pluck
and to a belief that if the challenger should lift
the Cup it would add greatly to the interest of
the international race an 1 would put American
yacht builders so on their mettle that our at
tempts to bring back the Cup would create far
more general interest even than at present
