If the fact of the time allowance had
been concealed from tho watchers on
the attendant craft, they would have
been under the hallucination that they
were watching tho sea drama of tho
ages. But the cold facts of the meas?
urements and tho calculations had been
revealed to them and they knew that
they were seeing a very futile attempt
of Shamrock to win the third race and
7ho America's Cup.
It was first reported that boat for
boat Shamrock IV had won on elapsed
tint? by cne second, hut this ??was cor?
rected by signals from the official boat.
H was actually a dead boat and the
oldest of tho followers of yacht races
could not recall an instance where this
had happened before.
No Hace To-day, Shamrock in Dock
There will be no race to-day. Sham?
rock is ordered into drydock by her
owner, Sir Thomas Lipton. The next
race will be over the triangular course.
at.d it was over a triangular course
that Shamrock outsailed and outlucked
In the next race it would seem that
Sir Thomas might see the consumma?
tion of his life's ambition, if ever.
In the work to the windward it
seemed to be demonstrated that Reso?
lute, with a fair and steady breeze, can
outfoot Shamrock by enough distance
to prevent that allowance of seven
minutes and one second being made
\'.p in the reach home. Yesterday the
defender made that evident under the
guidance of Captain Charles Francis
Adams, who seemed to feel tho pulses

loop into the breeze, coaxing and

Precedes Start of Race
By Jack Lawrence
Resolute won the third America's
Cup race yesterday because of her
I marvelous ability in going to ?windward
? and because in that leg of the contest
' she had exactly the wind velocity she
likes best ?about ten knots. The
failure of Shamrock IV to point with
. Resolute in the fifteen-mi.e beat cost
the challenger the race and perhaps Sir
| Thomas Lipton the honor of winning
the world's yachting championship.
Another day of doldrums was in
i prospect when Shamrock and Resol?te
| prepared to leave their respective
? anchorages in Sandy Hook Bay yester
'< day morning for their third cup battle.
The managers of the big green sloop
hoped sincerely that, it would be the
last race of the series.
The surface of the Lower Bay at that
time was a shimmering field of oil,
. while the only motion on the open sea
! was a lazy ground swell that kept
j sightseeing craft rocking monotonously
and made those on board feel extreme
: ly pallid. The long, long roll had a
tendency to give landlubbers a far
j away feeling amidships, and during the
I tedious wait for the starting signa!
1 there were many unenthusiastic spec?
tators who wished they were in some
solid inland town, like .Marion. Ohio.
The faithful navy blimp silhouetted
, itself languidly against the overcast
sky and a lone army plane from
! Mine?la twittered about high overhead.
' The fleet of onlooking craft had
dwindled to a couple of depopulated
excurison steamers and that group of
yachts owned by dyed-in-the-sea racing
fans who arc sure to be found on any
course where a sail is to be stretched
Old Reliables Are on Hand
J. !'. Morgan, commodore of the New
York Yacht C tub, turned up as usual
m the Corsair, which is supposed to he
playing the r?le of guide boat for the
cup contenders. The guiding she has
done to date is hardly worth mention?
ing. Another old reliable follower of
the wind-driven racing :;amc on hand
was the motorized houseboat Edithia,
owned by John II. Hanau. She had
Add ?.-.on G. Hanan aboard yesterday,
said to be the cleverest amateur skip
! er in America.
The Victoria, with Sir Thomas Lipton
and a small party of guests, followed
the ambitious challenger ?out of the
Sandy Hook horseshoe, and the two
were blown many raucous salutations
on their way to the line. The Victoria
answered them all, even to a thin so?
prano toot that was piped by the small
cabin cruiser Runaway, whose home
port is Evansville, Ind.
Sir Thomas seemed to have some
difficulty in figuring out how a boat
could got from Evunsville, Ind., tc
Ambrose Channel, hut appeared satis
lied when some one told him it arriver
over the Erie and that Evansville
ranked next to Sioux City as a yacht?
ing cent? r.
It was obvious that Tuesday's de?
cisive and unqualified victory ovei
Resolute had imbued Shamrock's crev
with large quantities of confidence anc
pep. They made preparations for yes?
terday's race with a dash and vigoi
that surprised onlookers.
Burton's Crew Confident

pristine flannel trousers in honor of

guard looked exceedingly sprightly

If Charles Francis Adams, amateur
skipper of the defender, desired light
airs for the start of the third cup bat?
tle, he certainly found his wdsh ma?
terialized when he reached the course.
An hour before the preparatory signal
was set the wind was (latter than it
b.ad been at any time during Tuesday's
contest. What there was of it came
in soft and unsteady puffs from the
There was so little breeze at 11 :-0
that a postponement signal was hoisted
from the committee boat Baryton. For
an hour the two sloop.; cruised about
in the littul zephyrs, sometimes with
hardly enough power in their sails to
give them steerage way. It was evi?
dent that the committee realized that
the America's Cup might be won or
lost on the Sandy Hook course in this
?ace. and there was no desire to send
the boats awav in a wind that might
devote its entire attention to one, with
disastrous results for the other.
Delay Proves Wise Move
The postponement proved to have
been a wise move on the part of the
Race Committee, for at 12:30 the re?
viving wAid could be seen dappling the
surface of tho sea far down to the
southwest. At 12:45, when the prepara?
tory signal was set, there whs onty a
fuint breeze, but it gave every indica?
tion of freshening.
The cours?.? signals called for a lif
tijen-mile beat to windward ami return,
the outer mark being hud by Captain
Louis R. Blix in the steamer Eileen
Miirse. This stake was anchored at a
point about seven miles off the beach at
Ocean Grove, The first leg would have
kept the racers within view of the
shore for practically the entire con?
test, hutl i; not been for a smoky haze
that huna- over the water. The mist
was so thick during the early part of
the ?1rs', leg that the yachts were at.

Tiie warning signal was hoisted on
the Baryton at 12:55, and at this time
??eie was a nice sailing breeze tilling
the wings of both sloops.
As in Tuesday's race, Captain Burton
appeared to have the b?'fter of the jock?
ey, ng that preceded the start, in a
number of short hitches to the west of
the line Adams appeared to be content
to follow in the challenger's wake, al?

I Baryton at 1 o'clock, and the Shamrock
went over the line at 1:22 in the
I weather position after Adams had made
i no attempt whatever to take that berth
? himself. The Lipton craft passes under
I the ?tern of the lightship and seemed
| to have every possible advantage in
: the getaway. The t: offer, der went up
toward the committee boat and crossed
dog? to ~'irr Btern exactly 19 seconds
! after her opponent had gone over.
j Right here began as pretty a wind
? ward duel as was ever staged by con?
testants for the America's Cup. For
Burton it was a desperate one, calcu?
lated to tax his skill to the utmost,
? for he knew he could not point as
i high as his rival and would have to find
some other means of getting to the
, outer mark first. Th;- first five minutes
! of yesterday's heat, demonstrated clear
' ly R( solute's superiority in windward
The little white sloop seemed to be
'sailing directly into the teeth of the
j wind and ?very tack found her rival a
| greater distance in her ?oe. Snam
j rock's windward work yesterday, how
! over, was a vast improvement over her
I showing in the fifteen-mile beat in
; Thursday's race.
Both yachts crossed the line on the
j starboard tack and Shamrock, with a
i Jersey coast pilot added to her after
| guard, immediately shifted over to
port and began a long hitch for the
j beach. Captain Adams appeared to be
; entirely disinterested in this maneuver
on the part of the challenger. He gave
his entire attention to his old game of
eating into the wind, leaving Shamrock
to go her leeward way alone.
Hoped to Out foot Adams
Burton appeared to believe that he
? could outfoot Adams and gain a suffi
j cient lead to enable him to tack across
i tho latter's hew, and in this way get
: out of her lee. His early tad
? the windward log were all made with
this idea in view, but when the ?o a
port tack failo.d he must have known
the feat was impossible.
The challenger moved along at great
I speed on this tack, and at 1:52 went
i over to starboard in a desperate effort
j to head off the defender. It looked foj
j a time as though Burton's plan was tc
i be successful, but as Adams hold to his
, port tack and the two yachts began t
converge it became evident that Sham
: rock's fast footing to leeward had nol
! given her sufficient gain to enable hei
1 to weather the defender.
Adams waited until he was csrtair
i that Burton could not get out frorr
under his lee and then he tacked, anc
it was apparent that he was still fai
. to windward of the challenger. Burtor
tried every trick he knew to get out
from under Resolute and made a num
ber of short hitches of hardly nn<
minute's duration. They gained hin
nothing and in some instances workec
out to the advantage of tho defender
Defender in the Lead
By ft o'clock the velocity of th? wind
had increased to twelve knots and the
two yachts were c!o?e hauled and cut?
ting through the water on their beam
ends. Between 2:15 and 2:30 the
sloops tacked a half dozen times, Bur?
ton taking the initiative in his struggle
ftj free himself of Resolute's lee. He
tried everything known to the game, in?
cluding fake tacks, but the maneuver
ing availed him nothing, and at 2:30
the Riefender was 765 yards in the
lead, according to the range finder on
the bridge of the destroyer Semmes.
In this battle for the weather berth
the two yachts made more than twenty
tacks between the starting line and the
Both yachts made the mark on the
ftarboard tack, Resolute at this time
appearing to feel the freshening breeze
more- than the challenger, judging by
the way she was lied ing as she
swooped down on the stake. She
rounded at 2:24:40 with a lead of two
minutes and four seconds.
The handling of the defender on tin
turns was a snappy piece of work. he?
spinnaker pole being in position be?
fore she was straightened out for the
run down the wind. That sail was up
in stops before the turn was made and
when the order came to release k the
great wing splashed out on the por
side without, a hitch. A few minute!
later a balloon jib was set.
Challenger Cuts Down Lead
Burton duplicated these moves afte:
he had rounded the turn, but it lookec
for a moment as though the spinnakc
stops were going to cause the boa
the same trouble she had on Tuesda;
with her ballooner. The spinnaker wa
finally set, however, and the ba]looi
jib followed it quickly;.
The long $tern chase after the puce
making Resolute then began in earnest
with the wind dropping gradually unti
it was hardly more than eight knots
Although Shamrock's spinnaker an
balloon jib appeared to spill the win
a great deal it was plain that she wa
picking up foot by foot the ground sh
had lost in the windward leg.

As III Omen by Crewt
While the next America's Crm
race han been set for to-morrow
by the? race committee, it Wa
doubtful last-night whether th*
managers of Shamrock IV or
Resolute could muster a Sl!*
cient number of foremast hand?
to operate the yachts. Both ere?,
decifire that it would b? flying j*
the face of fate to sai, a race on

The fact that this is the thir?

both yachts that no good canc?n?
