Yachtsmen In this latltudo aro optimistic Howover unpropitlous tho weather may b when tho bravo fleot gathers at tho rendez vous, overybody hopes thnt there will be a chango for the hotter boforo tha regatta Is ovor. That Is tho way the yachtsmen on tho Iron steamboat Taurus felt yesterday morning whon thoy steamod down the bay to tho starting point of tha New York Yacht Club's regatta just outside tho Narrows. It was a eulten, dlsagreenblo morning. The mlst-pcrmcatod air was pulseless. Smoko from tho tall faotory chimneys ashore shot up perpondlculnrly, looking like granlto columns supporting the lowering sky. But thero was little gloom aboard tho Taurus. Smiling womon and daz zling girls, most of whom didn't know tho spinnaker boom from the bowsprit, wero thoro, and were witling to be enlight ened to nn unlimited extent about nautical thtngs. They becamo enthuslastlo over tho yacht In the lend, and didn't seem to care whether this yacht belonged to their partic ular friends or to some othor persons. Tho radiant girls In becoming yachting cos tumes did not plno for information, for tho gallant, gllt-cdged tars wero on deck shiver ing their timbers, splicing the main brace, and doing all the other things characteristic of tho truo yachtsman. Tho band playod "Annlo Boonoy," "Comrades." and othor tunes calculated to stir up tho elements, and lol tho mist began to vnnish nnd a gentle breezo enmeout of tho east, or thereabouts. Tho white-wlngcil fleet emerced from the myites nlloat. It was not the gorgeous oetot nn America Cup year, but there wore tamo splendid speeders in It. Evorybody hnd a list of tho yachts and was able to Idontify them by tho numbers on their sails. Tho old Bchooner Dauntless was on hand. She tilled tho Clay-bcnrded Corinthians with reminiscences, Mio was ti cood boat in the erti of skimming dishes, but now she Is merely tho relic ot a typo tliat hns gouoout of fashion. She Is not in it with tho deep-keeled, nnrrow models of to day. hho was In cruising trim, likotho only competitor in her class, the Alert, and sho had many friends nmong the veterans on tho Tain up. who loved her for tho victories she had won. 'I ho Burgess schooner Mnrguerlto nnd tho schoonorbhamrock. once a giant slnglo-stljker ambitious to defend tho cup, camo In for a largo share ot admiration. Tnelr battle was to bo the feature of tho regatta. Tho untried little Wasp showed that she carried a sting with her. which oven tho undefeated Cilo rlana may fiel somo time, bhe carved her way to windward with her knlfe-llko keel in a way that made the old timors marvel. The darn, once queon of tho pyg my fleet, was out to try, conclusions with the Wasp. Hut, ns Niels Olsen remarked, "the only boat that can beat tho Wasp and Olorlana is another boat built somewhat on the same lines." The Clara nppnrontly did not want to get shamefully llckcu.and so she took hertimo crosslnc the line. Sho did not cot over until after tho handicap gun boomed from tho flag ship Electro. The Clara and the Dauntless Were the only vnehts handicapped. There was a tangle, of t-choonore nt the start The Mnrcuerlto poked her nose polo Into the Comanche's mainsail, nbout ten feet from the end of thn boom. The two yachts wero several minutes entangled, tho Comancho towing the Marguerite by her bowsprit. Nimble sailoinien ran out on the boom of tlio Co mancho und the bovvt-prlt of tho Mnrguerlto nnd separated the yachts. Tho Marguerite ran up a protest line. For a time It looked as If tho two yachts wero going to double up and bring confusion to following craft, nnd folks nboard the accompanying fleet of steam yachts nnd ecmslon boats felt worried until the Mnrgueritn got under way again. A strange-looking little craft, with a very long, cream-coloied funnel, was an objoctof much lemark on the Taurus. It was the sido w heel vacht Claremont. She was showing her self for the 111 st tluiM at n regatta, und sho was deemed worthy. bec.iUcn of hor uniqueness, of muio than a cursory view, f-liostenmed homeward while tho regatta was storting. After the vaelits rounded thu 6outhwest spit nnd reached, elosnhauled. fortho red lightship MTlNindy Hook, tlio race was largely a study of cloud effects nnd fngs.

The race practically ended there, for the varieties of wind nnd weather on the i nn in mado It Impi stiMn to mdee the Inherent qualities of the contest ing boats. Hani, sunshine, nnd fog rapidly succeeded i ach other. The horizon was sometimes less than half a mile away. Llghtnlng7ig7agced from slate-colored banks of clouds, anil torrents rushed across the decks of the Taurus, driving everybody Inside. A vellow-fiinnolle.l monitor came out of Hie ml-taiu! diverted attention Irnm the legnttii. Mio was the Mlantonomyh.

The general publlo saw the race from tho Iron steamboat Cppheus, and the club members and their friends from thn Taurus. Tho polico boat l'atinlauil t Itu tug B.J.

All of the y.iehuentortd vvero down near thn Hue when Iho preparatory gun was fired at 1.'. 15 o clock. They had jutt ten minutes to manoeuvre for position beforo the starting gun was fired. Bight here the only accident oftho day occurred. The acbosnerf Uarguorlto. Comanche, Shamrock, and Peerlen were all close togethor on tho starboard tack bearing down for the lino. There was vorr little wind nnd a strong obb tldo. It became ap parent pretty soon to thoso on tho hlectra that there was going lo bo a collision unless a breozo sprang up. Tho Shamrock, which Was next to the Marguerite, euddculy commfcneed to veer toward the latter, and the Marguerite's fklpPcrshoorcdolTii little to avoid a collision, tho crew hauling in tlio main shoot fdr all they wert; worth. The tldo surely would have borno tho Mnrguerlto down on the Eleotra unless tho schoonerB helmsman altered his course. Ho was fqrcod to haul up. on tho wind or get pitted on tho Electro's sharp bowsprit. Ho was not clearot the Comaneht'.whlch was Just ahead of htm, but ho had to lako big chancos. Tho Marguerite, which had mom way on her, stuck her sharp noso through tho loech oftho Comanche's mnlnsall nnd ripped a six-foot holo In It, Tlio crewot tho Mar cuurito ran out on her bowsprit and jumped on tho Comancho main boom, trying tn clear thn wreck and got, the vessels apart. After threo minutes' work tney wero successful, and tho yachts started off alter thn Shamrock and Peerless which, through good handling, hod managed to escape disaster, the Shamrock was sailod in masterly atria by hor owner, J. Bogers Maxwell. He knows how to hnndlo it vneht as woll as a railroad ileal. The chief interest nf thu tiny centred In the new Herrushoff 40-footer, the Wasp, ownod nnd sailod by her owner, Archibald Bogers. Every ono was anxious to seo the improved Glorlnnn, as sho Is called, and to coinparo her with Vlce-Cominndore Morgan's unvan qulshcd 4il-footer. They were disappoint ed, however, ns sho had really nothing ngulnst hur, oxcopt thu Clnin. an old stylo cutter very fast In her tiny, but outclassed now, and an old sloop called tho Sun beam, formerly the Bestloss. '1 he Wasp walked right away from tbeso old-timers, and beat tho Clara, which was tho onlyvacht to finish In her class, by over an hour nnd thirty-nine minutes elapsed tlino. Good judges did not seem to think that she was as fast as tho Oio rianu. but nn one can really tell anything nbout tho mattor until thu Nowport rnces. Sho certainly seems far ruoto tender than last year's crack. Tho .Union, a new Gardiner schooner which Was nnleieil. was not on hand, nnd thus the regatta was deprived of somo of Its Interest. But the race between tho Shamrock and Mr. Palmer's Improved .Marguerite waB a strucglo worth going miles to see. The Shamrock led almost all the way to Sandy Hook lightship. Just bofore reaching thero tho Mnrguerlto. being the more powerful boat, imibsuU lier nnd finished about four minutes ahead, hho will not win. however, ns she has to allow tho hhnmrock about seven minutes. She may have a chance yet. If her protest is nllortcd. At r':;ij p.

Tho Electro hod to muko good time to reach the Southwest Spit In time to time tho racers. By this tlino the Shamrock had taken first place. She was followed closely by the Marguerite nnd tho Wasp.

From here they had aline run lo the bandy Hook Lightship, which was mado interesting by a heavy ruin squnll. Just belore thn leudliig yachts reached tho lightship, every ono wu- staitltd by a loud re port, which was preco led by a vivid flash of light. There was an Impression that one of thogunsnn thn llectr.i had exploded, but It turned out to be u thunderbolt A number of persons on the deck of the Electin felt tho shock dlstincll)-. and ono of ths suitors, who had hold of a wiro rope, received a sovero shock. As the yachts drew near, It was plain that tho Marguerite was slowly, but surely, gaining on the Mhamrock. and just beforo thoy lacked around tho lightship who pa-sed tho Buy ltldge boat und boat her uround by 45 seconds. A few moments later the Wnsp rounded. Tho other yachts were headed oil by tho wind, mid hud to muko on extra tack or two beforo they could get uround. Going free on tho run homo, tho Marguerite gained a little more on the bhamrock. but not enough to bent hor. Just after tho Mnrguurlte. Shamrock, and Wasp passed the bouthwest Spit on the way buck tho wind shifted again, this time to tho northeast, und the schooners which had set their spinnakers tn port had to take thom, us well as their jib toisalK In again. ho, in stead of going in belore the wind they finished closn hauled. It was hard work for the crews of tho yachts, as tho rain camo down Intoncnts after they loft bouthwest bplt un the-way out. and did not let up until long after the last boat had llnlshed. -Tho only boats which did not go over tho course were the bunle.im aud the Dauntless.

This eritlclsm rankled i.n tho breast ot the Taeoma Postraater. J. D. Hoguo, but he complained that tho appropria tion for tho office was not largo enoueh to en able him to hlro a sufficient number of dork, to say nothing ot a janitor, and the prompt transaction of business was of more impor tance than tho appearance of the office. He had. however. In his force three girls, among thom Miss Reese. A few weeks ago be con ceived tho Idea of puttlns three men In their places, and having ono of the men deypte part ot his tlmo to acting ns janitor of tho building. Accordingly tho three girls were discharged. Whon tho Taeoma people learned of the change thore wns at onco nn Indignant pro tet. Tho patrons of the office drow up a peti tion to tho Postmaster, declaring that the work of tho young women was In every way satisfactory, that they wore thoroughly effi cient, and that to discharge them was an un 3 unllflod mistake. Mr. Hoguo was at first de ant, nnd declared that he would run hie office to suit himself. Ho said that young women wero always Inclined to flirt, and flirting de layed the work of tho office. This acousatlon was the last straw to break the back ot the Taeoma public The business men with one accord asserted that the girls did not flirt, but attended to their work, and that Mls Reese In f articular was one otthe best bred women In ho wholo Northwest.

Under tho circumstances there was nothing for Mr. Hoguo to do but yield, and now the young women aro nt their accustomed duties again.
