After glorious tussto orcr n .10-knot trlin gular course outside of Bandy Hook, Inn UO-knot breeze nnd a lump of a sea, yesterday, J. Itogcr Maxwell' schooner yacht Emerald defeated her nearest rival, the Ariel, by n minutes nml nil seconds elapsed and 14 seconds corrected time, ' t after allowing a handicap of 3 minutes and 2d seconds. Incidentally, the Emerald defeated the Klsemarte and Shamrock by half an hour or more. The race, which was really the winding up of the yachting season of 1HD4, was held uticlir the auspices of the New York Yacht Cluh, and was . what was known n the Autumn Hweeptake. I M That is to say, the race was open to sloops and I H schooners belonging to the New York Yacht H Club, and, while the club added a $JUO cup to the jj IH winner and a $100 cud to the second boat in Bfl coch class where four or more jacht started, Vfl encjlt owner posted SJO which went to the win H nlng )nehl. Willie the Emerald, Ariel, Htiam j M rock, and Etsemarle started In the schooner nice, ' J. only two boats, the Wasp anil Queen Mab. fared B each other among tho single-stickers. As the '. M Wnp jumped her bowsprit out of her m In the first leg of tho match, the Watson cutter S practically had a walk-over. Tho easterly 9 breeze. Jumping seas, and rain squalls, were al- 1 most an exact reproduction of the weather ex- periencod by the Yalkyrleand Vigilant In their H final encounter for the America's Cup last fall. H Except for an almost steady downpour of rain, H It was Ideal )achtlng weather, and, while the H landlubbers on the club boat Walter A. Lucktn- H back wero anything but pleased at the outlook, m tho hanlencd Corinthians on the yachts seemed M to fainy revel In the moisture as they crawled, B fell, and tumbled around the slanting decks of B the racers. M Tho Luckcnback, with a small but enthusU Bfl astlc gathering of )nchtsnien. Including an ex. fl temporized regatta committee, consisting of Chester Orlswold, W. Huticr Duncan, Jr.. J. V.S. M Oldie, and Alonzo I). Jones, left Tier 3, East M Hiver, at H:43 1. M.. along with .Superintendent fSJ Nells 01en, on nnothcr tug freighted down with murk flags and other rnclng paraphernalia. H On the way out to Sandy Hook the club men tt pAed the majority of the racers, which were H proceeding under tow to the starting line. As (H there was a One easterly breeze, it was decided to start the schts from Scotland Lightship. H The sailing directions calling for a thlrty.knot H triangular course, ten knots to a leg, the skip- Baal ters received Instruction to sail the first ten I OB knots in an easterl) ellree tlon to the first mark. , IBm From here their course was southwest by ( south for another ten knots, and north-mirth- HH nest for nnnther ten knots to the ttnish. At jH 11. HO A. M. the preparatory signal was given. ! The ofllrlal Ht if starters, with their owners, j racing length, and time allowance, follows: ' AVJ SLOOPS A.I I) CLTTEHS. Bfl Ktirtnp Allot.

J3 B Shamrock W I' Ward J8 IS 10 04 i MJ The sloops whlrh were sent away first at 1 1 :.1S U received only three minutes In which to cross the line, the Wasp living the first away nt 11:34: IS, followed by the Queen Mab nt 11-34:4)1. Moth crossed on the starboard tack, the Wasp near the centre of the line and the MB Mab a little to windward. When the signal was given the Wasp was right on the line, but, iM owing to the fact that the tug C. OtTerman. which tow ed some of the racers to the line, was I dnngling to a 100-foot cable astern of the lightship, none of the racers could cross AW properly, being forced to cross near the tug- boat lnsteivl of near the lightship, as they wished. The result was that the schooners wnlchwere startrI nt 11:3 A.M. all crossed on the port tack with working topsails up and tarred op sharply under the Lockenhark's stern. The schooners were timed as follows: ArleL M 11:3:31; Emerald. 11 ,1ii:3n; hnmrtn.-k, tM 11:37:0'.: Klsemarte. 11:37:50. The Mali. n among the sloops, and the Shamrock, among the schooners, worked along the line before J they crossed, while the Emerald, had no soon- (I er crossed than she was about on the star- J board tack, her example being followed by nil except the EWmarle, which pot well to H windward of the fleet before she came about. All wern now on the starboard HJ lack, headed for the Itockawar short. B 1 lunging their bowsprits under and drenching J their crews despite their ollklns. Owlngto I some trouble with the Lackenback's anchor the racers were lost sight of In the mist, and did not J rtappear again until 1'-' 30 I. M., when the Em- erald and Ariel could be seen headed out to sea on the port tack. In utmost the same positions in wmtb tney sUrteU. Tne Ariel was a little ahead and to windward. Owing to the mist and drlrlng rain it was hard J to dlsUnguKh the others, which were way J astern: but It soon became apparent that the Mab was the only single-sticker left, the Wasp, as It was known later, having broken her bob- star and jnmped her bowsprit out In the sea. The shamrock and Elscmarle, in their way, H were having just as hot a flIit for third and ! fourth honors as the Ariel and Emerald were for first and second, a quarter of a mile separat- Ing thm as they flew past the commltteo boat. TBJ At 1 '03 tho Emerald came about and Mood for H the mark on the starboard tack. The Ariel B kept on for a moment, and after crossing the Emerald's Low came about on her weather H iuarter. It was nip and tuck to the line, and it Ml was a question which would round first. As they HJ drew nearer it was teen that neither buatcouid J fetch the mark. The Emerald, howeter, now had her bearings, and agalu was the first to tack on the port tark at l.'.'j. Again the Ariel just fcri-d across her bow, coming J about at 1 V'l.ao The Ariel, however, did not tack quite um enough, ami the result was that fBJ the Emerald was the first m round, at 1.37,38, J the Ariel being tlmwi at 1 -2H 14; Queen Mab, I 1 3 4.1.

It made little difference, how. ever, as the others went hopelessly astern.

Tho weather to day was decidedly Inauspicious for the Inter national cricket match between Canada and the United Btntea at Wlssnhlckon, but In aplto of the rain of the early morning play was resumed at 11 o'clock. The local team continued their Inning where It had stopped last evening, with three wickets down for elghty-thrcoruns. Clark Joined Ilohlen, the not-ouU With only three runs added to the over-night total, llohlin was caught and bowled by McOlverln. Mulr came next, but his stay was very short, ho being Imwled by Lntng without adding to tho score. Italston was the next man. With only four to his credit he was returned to the club house, a cnlch by Terry nt cater point effecting tits dis missal. Six wickets were down for ninety-one runs, and the chances of passing the Canadians' total of 1SS wcro rapidly diminishing. Middle and Clark, however, tho next combination, proved to be tho most effective one of the day, and they carried tho totat up to within flvo runs of the Canadians' score. Until men played good cricket, showing nn Impregnable defence to good balls and punishing the loue ones severely. At 1 V45 o'clock Clark wns caught by Jonis from Lalug's bowling. HrooKle, the next man. was dismissed with a cipher. King then came to the bat, but he soon saw lllddlo retired with the total fttlSH. At 1 oVlock Ilailey joined King, and the twocrnck liowkrs showed that they had some knowledge nf the other department of the game. They ke pt Ihilr wickets up until tho rain cnused n stop for the dnv. shortly before the luncheon hour. At tbnt time each man had ten to his individual credit, with the total nt 177.

Considerable disappointment wna felt yester day when It was known that the rain would pre tnt a continuation of play In tho big cricket match between Lord Hawke's team and New York. Notwithstanding the ram, quite a num ber of persona visited the grounds at Living ston. All tho New York players were punctually on hand, but C. W. Wright was the only mem ber of the English team who thought there was a possibility of rlay. Lord llawke telephoned from tho Uotcl Waldorf asking If tho ground was In fit condition for the match, and upon receiving a negative reply he arranged with the New York captain to start the play this morning punctually at 10:30 o'clock. Should the game not be finished this afternoon there Is no reason why It should not be extended over to Thursday, as the first Phil adelphla match does not commence until Fri day. The New York team will probably have to follow their Inning, and while they ought to make more than ?.0 runs In their two attempts, they will hardly do ram tbau give the English men enongh to knex-k ofT for a few wickets. Tyers. the New Jersey professional, and J, II. Lambkin, will start the hatting for New York. Lord llawke expects that his first game with the llentlemen of Philadelphia will prmo his hardest battle. The men will be on their mettle for this match, for they all realize that ei cry one will hale to do his best If victory Is to rest ' with the trum. The first game w 111 be plartd at Harerford. t he pretty, new ground of the Merlon 1 I'. C The Phlladelphlans have selected an ex ceptionally strong team. and. as usual, li. S.

Four masked men attempted to hold It tip near florin. Mo. The attempt wns n failure, for the railroad and express officials expected It was coming and had had a spy watching tho camp of the outlaws for the past threo weeks. Hut though the bandits failed, they made things very lively for a few minutes. The risult Is that Dnd Prcscott, the engineer. Is seriously wounded nnd two of the robbers are betlei cd to 1m iliad or wounded In the woods. The ditecllic. with bloodhounds, arc chasing tho other two through tho country. At several stations detectives, nil armed to the teeth, boarded tho trnln. At htnalor two more men got on, who hato been pntrolllnt tho lino for twenty do) s. J. A. Matthews, w lm hns been acting as spy for the past two weeks and getting news of bandit plans, put In an apptnniiice nt Uulesburg. Ho brought news. Tho robin rs met enrlr In the day and decided to lrnM) their hid ing place near Memphis, Mo., at N:!10 o'clock last night, and to make their third attempt to get rich at tho expense of tho express company. They expected to make n haul of at least f 60,000, for the Monday run Is always much heavier than on any other day nf the week. When tho train reached this place, shortly after midnight. Division Superintendent Stock ton of tho Wells-Fargo Express Coinpnny got Into the treasure car. Ho carried n sawed-off Winchester. With him wero four men. Their arms were In the car, and hno Incn there for several days. Then a council of war was held and a plan adopted. Dotectlvcs ICtnncy and Montgomery boarded tho trnln. Superintendent Stockton and two of his good shots lay low In the express car. Hut It was in tho forward end of the smoking car whero tho forces were massed. A partition and door encloed half a dozen seals and shut oft the rest of the car from It. There a doxen men wero planted. Each had one of tho sawed-oft rifles, every cartridge loaded csiteclally fur the event with two dozen buckshot. There was only one jiaa sengcr In that compartment, and he was re quested by the brakeman to take a Hat In the chair car, ns they wcro going to swiep. Pull man car conductors and porters sought places of safety, and the trainmen did not expnae them selves unnecessarily. Ten minutes beforo the time set for the fun to begin the little compart ment In the baggage car was filled with armed men. The lights weie out, the windows were up. In each sent were two men sitting side ways, the muzzles of their guns protruding Just a trifle over the sills, flehlnd them stood others with Winchesters at half cock resting across their arms. Out from between two high embankments. Just one mile from Uorln, sped the train. Then came the crack of a railway torpedo. A moment and a ahrllL sharp whistle gate token that the engineer hail heard, and utmost before his hand left the alve, across the tracks, not fifty jords away, swung n red light. A grinding of wheels along the rails told the air brakes had be n np pliiil, and within twtnty seconds from the ex plosion of tho torpedo the train was at a stand out from the dense undergniw th north of the track came four men. The face of carh wits i hidden by a black mask. One, more agile than I the rest, rushed to the engine almo-t lieforo bis companions could reach the ixprcss i:ir. Ik earned a rifle, and when within ten feet of the tender brought It to his shoulder, pointed It at l)ad Preacott, tho whlte-bcarded engineer. As he shouted "Hold up your hojid:" he pulled the trigger. Ills aim was true, and the old man fell to the floor of his cab with a bullet lu his right breast. With una bound Dettttlie Kenney gained the top nf the tender, and bringing his gun to his shoulder, sent a shower of shot altnoni Into the face of the masked rot ber. How the fellow ever managed to move six Inches is a mystery. Hut he eprang from the engine and made for the wimds. The shot which laid Engineer Priwcntt low was the signal for a fusillade, and was echoed and reechoed from bank to tank ami through the woods. It was also the signal for a hasty re treat to the shelter of timber on the pari of the greatly surprised ludhlduuls whose featurrs were hidden by masks. Not until they reached timber did they answer. Then they only fired two shuts. Hut their aim was not good. and. al though men were leaning from the car windows nnd pulling triggers as fast aa pn-oible, while others had Jumped to the ground and were after them on foot, they failed to hit a man. Their norses were uitcnen not oer 100 yams away. When tho posau from the train reached the spot the) saw one animal, a graj. galloping north. A well-dlrt-cttd shut brought It low, but there was no rider on its back. 1 he rlace whero the horses were tied was soon found, and tut hitching straps showed thnt one man at ltn.it had life enough left to make his ecape. ehertrt Saling of Moiland county, Mo who was one of the party In the baggage car, took the saddle, blanket, and bridle from the dead gray.

Detective Kenney of the San la Fe says he is on the trail of two other robbers, and ex. Iptcu to capture both of them before nightfall. The disastrous attempt of tne bandits to hold up the train was the result of a well-considered , plan, which would probably have proved i successful bad it not been fur the betrayal 1 of the plot by Matthews Twice before the ' bandit bad left their hiding places, twenty- ' one milts away, and started for the spot selected for their deed of violence. Each time a copious fall of rain talked them. Eleven nlgnt ago they saddled up shortly after 10 o'clock and surte4 to ride slowly across country.

Their objections were overruled for the time being, but by the time the cavalcade was within seven miles of the railroad track. It was apparent to even the most foolhardy that dis cretion was ths better pan of valor. The com. mand to retreat was given and the procession return td. The next day two of Detective Kenney's men followed the trail for Ave miles. From the tracks thsy said eight men were in the party that nlznt. On hut Saturday morning for a second tuns tb affair was billed to take placo. If it had not been for the rain the attack would bar been evade, for. In addition to the regular prize car ried In tha express car on the train, there wa a big bundl of money to be used b the fcanu Ti la settling with, lu employs fur August.

Hut If the west bound should not put In an appearance, the east bound would haie to enmp there until it came along, for there Is no means of finding out what the trouble is without running back to La Plata. The men who planned tho robbery figured that they had tho train nnd Its trrnsuresln a pocket, and would have nil the time necisaarynnt only to rifle the express rnr but to relieve the passen gers of their valuables. hey also made a careful study nf tho topog raphy of tho country. .For nearly a thousand feet before the spot at which the red light wna sw ung at ross the rnlls the road w Inds on a re terse rurve through n cut with embankments from ten to fort) Feet high.

"A Oalety Olrl," at DaW Theatre, last even ing, waa primarily and principally a show of women. A dozen were remarkable beauties, and another dozen were handsome Moet of them possessed no acting ability whatever, eith er In speaking, tinging, or dancing, and wero of no uso except to look at. Several wero diverting, and nil had tho Inter est of novelty, for they were wholly new to New York eyee. They had been exported to us from London by (li-orgo Edwnrde and consigned to Atigustln Daly for exhibition. Most of them might about a well have been qutto Inanimate, for they wero nearly lifeless, and preferable when they were still. Hut there were admirable exceptions. Derlma Moore, whoso reputation hod crossed tho ocean lieforo her, sang excellently, danced with nim ble grace, nhd acted w Ith Zcstf ill humor. Maud Hobwin, also known here by hearsay, proved to lie a very clever and engaging actress. Cissy Fitzgerald, tho chief dancer of the party, wo exceedingly spry and supple, but her dancing was vulgar In manner and costume. Hlant he Masscy, who looked like Mary Ander son turned blnndr, will probably lm n ganlrd a the most superlatively lovely creature In the lot, nnd she timid net a little. These gaiety girls nrosiirr togaln a great vogue with tho tienpte who commonly support burlcsiitic, and, besides that, are likely to m taken to by those who fol low London's lend In thratrlcat affair. Thero I mora of n sensible plot to "A Oalety Olrl" than Is commonly found In pieces played by liondon burlesque companies. The author ship of the profto I attributed by tho bill to Owen Hale, and It may ho thnt he wrote in tho hope that Ids plecu would In- Inlcrpri led sltin re 1) n n comedy. He made n heroine nf n Onlcly actress, gaven Life Ounnls t ipialn In lie r for a lover, let hir Ixinnusid of theft under run vine Ing circumstance, but finally vindicated her character nnd left her to blissful in itrimnny. The work bear further evldi ncc of st-rioiiln-tentloti III its entire nf the llrltlshleg.il, midlciil, and military professions. Whatever limy hnv hern Mr. Hale's original lutintion, howevir, "A Oalety Olrl" I now nlmnst w hotly frisky. Many verse b) llnrr Onuibni.k ore sung to music by Sldnc) .femes, nrd Its success I intlnly with Or"nlmiik nnd Jones's matter. Thiil is to Mty, the burlesque goes well nnd the coined) luidli.the r-obcre'cin getting in thewnynf the others, nnd making only an ltnprrwuitiuf lii'ongrult) nml te-tlinuv-ne. When "A Unlet) OlrPwa half through the people were si) Ing that tin llkul It i r) much. They had seen n n pri-st nlntlnii nf n van I mi p-irty. tn which Uith snclety ulrls mid gn( ty girl hnd Ikcii invited, and the failure1 of these two kinds of gue-it to harmonize hud been nintis ing. Threodroll eomitllnns, Harry .Mnnklmusi-, 1eedhnm llantnck, nnd Fred Ku)c, had lie-en Irresistibly ludicrous iu,a family dm tnr, a ill v orcn t nil rt .1 ud ge, and a bantam Major. Charles 11) ley and W, Lnuin Ilradtkld had sung and act ed acceptably In Juvenile riilc. The toituturn and eenery luul Ik en showy, nnd at tho same time In equMtn taste. The mnv ement luul 1 ti brisk, pretty, nnd generally funny. The second half was a disappointment to the expectations which had been raised. Herc-tho leg of the women wero for the first time dis closed. The scene was at the a ashore, and the women were dlpla)rd In fanciful bathing cos tumes. There used to bo a turirt)-hnw bur lecne, a favorlt with " female minstrel " troupes. In which the aetrcsc were caught by men In scant bath raiment. The episode In "A Oalety Girl" Is refined and sightly. Instt ad nf coarse and repulsive, but the same sort of vlclousnesa Is In It, It 1 better to stand such exhibits out on view brazenly, and with mi mincing or mock shynesw, than to giv-o tn them a semblance of shame hj meri nf nnn concealing draperies wantnuly unruverlng what i they make a rretencenf hiding. j A brief carnival srene. however, closed the , performance In a seemly and sprightly fashion, and pnrttall) re lleved thelmrvd feeling whit lithe ' second act had engetide-red. The- elite rtnlnment i should be shortened and quickened fnrAmeri- run repetltlnn. but as it i It will be rather pros perous In New Vork. The classification of "The New Hoy" at the Standard as a farce must li modified a little, on account of a fine streak of genulno comedy that runs through it. The success of that cle ment Is due to n charm of naturalnrn with which ll li acted. The small man who figures an a stlixillij is sentlmentnll) assailed by a schcxilglrl, who ha liegun to take notice -f the cippo-tlte sex. She has hail a lnvi- affair with the bully of the Institution and another Is In prog. res with a tutor, but she prompt!) fasten iipnn the new boy, and hustles him Into a flirtation. It Is Venus and AdonU over again, except that the feminine wooer and teinptrras 1 as guile less as an Infant- and her aggression un- the acme of Ingenuousness. If the imrt were acted li) a soubrctte of the goo-goo and prattle kind, tho author's purjne nf Intn-duelng a Dplcal arliis-ilgirl would be deft Ated. but Miss Hash-), hitherto unknown to fame, makesnf thi union sclousl) audacious irmture a real, trie, nnd winscme humorous character, the best artlstio success nf tjie prialuctloi.
