t The moment It win seen that the Valkyrie
bad abandoned the race the lugs ot the even
Ing newspapers made a dash for Ilia llrltlsh
loaU and a half a hundred yacht mid big pas
senger carriers did the same The majority of
the fleet held fast for a time a If undecided
r hat to do
Five minute are rounding the lightship
however the Valkyrie took a tow line from her
tender en route for the bar and then the fleet
began to trtfll anar In the ak of the Yankee
t fljcr There wu t b no race but then the
r people were out for an excursion and they were
going to pee the walkover
L The tory of this walkover li quickly told
The brefto held light throughout lleforo more
than a third of the route was covered the wind
i shifted no much t the south that the spinnaker
t was taken la i Meantime the balloon jib had
been lt of course and for ten miles or so the
Yankee drifted on with only that balloon for
ward Then within a mile or so of the turn the
ordinary jib and staysail were lit and there
after the balloon jib was noticeable chiefly for
its shivering
I Certainly It was a very pleasant sail not s
I Interesting as a trip t the fishing banks when
4 the black flshare biting freely I nor so entertain
ing as a plcnlo excursion up the Hudson but It
was pleasant and moreover there was no end
to the refreshments on the excursion let alI
r the refreshments were kept on Ice and had lot
of else in them
As the turn mark came In view the most of
the excursion fleet ran on ahead and gathered
t near thu stakeboat The Yankee came drift
s Ing down with easy grace The band on the
I steamers with one accord began to play patri
1 otic or jig music A length away tho Defender
tarted her big jib down the stay And then all
I bands and the steam whistles began to shout
The official time at the turn was
Defender 1 15
As on another notable occasion In the hatr
St the Americas Cup there was no second
The run out was slow but all that could have
been hoped for from the wind It took 2 bour
C minutes and 34 seconds The yachtsmen sail
I It waa a great pity the Englishmen had not
tried his especlallydcslgnedforllghtalrs boat
for the light airs had proved lighter than In
t the preceding and from
diner of Ireelng races judging trm
what the Valkyrie had done In the fonrkno
t breeze of the first hour of the frt race shi
would have had an even chance for winning
By snlklag his lordship threw away this even
I chance
I Before the vaporous uproar had subsided the
i luffed In her balloon
Defender Inle up to gather he blon
i jib topsail As she swung around the outer
mark her whitejackets hauled down her vo
luminous head calico carelessly after the man
ner of sure winner that It was caught by a
puff and the foot of It dragged In the s I
there had been a rival ahead or Jut astern to
Inspire the Yankee sailors they might have
1 acted with their usual catlike celerity and had
1 the balloon clawed Inboard In a jiffy Without
1 Incentive they were almost a sluggish a the
t seamen of a German bark i
Three minutes after she rounded she set her
I little jib topsail The wind had shifted t south
West and It looked for while if the
t wet loke a whe as peerless
sloop might b able to make the hoe mark In
C few long adB short lea
t Blr
z Later It was seen that she would have a dead
towind ward struggle t the finish Bho was
closehauled on the port tack with tho
b larger cart of the excursion fleet far
t1 to eeurdon 1et to
leeward Their port rails were so crowd
ed with admiring spectators that guards
1 were nearly under and port wheels Invisible
The starboard paddles fanned the air and so
deeply did the port paddles dip In the gently
swelling seas that fountains of foamy water
I gushed from the Interstices of the paddle boxes
There was a band on the City of Lowell and It
played the Star Spangled Banner with a
fervor perhaps largely from Teutonic luns
that stirred the patriot t enthusiastic cheering
The invisible hands at the aerial bellows were
working with more energy now and the blue 1
hulled American slipped through the swells like i
the mere ghost of herself She passed the I
tbreefnnnelled HamburgAmerican liner Nor
I mannla bound out with pennants of lowlying
emoke steaming astern leI port rails were
black with passengers who doubtless wondered
why only one of the racing yachts was visible
The Defender sailing at her bst went about
j on the starboard tack at 201 standing to the
southward She was looking mighty pretty
and the whistles of the neetaent
whlstas sent her discordant
encouragement at frequent Intervals
On some of the steam yachts sidewheelers
f I and tugs brooms were raised The tug Maria
i e Hoffman had two brooms on the after end of her
4 pilot house adorned with flags bearing a blue
American eagle and the shield of the United
I The horizon seaward had assumed a dark
I misty aspect This was partly due to the smoke
I from the fleet pressed down by the hot and
humid air
For a time the procession of sldewheelers and
propellers trailing in the wake of the Bristol
model seemed to those a few miles
moel aemed mlea ahead like
1 dim Images of ships There was plenty beer
aboard many of the tugs and the passengers
found some solace In toasting one another and
the handsome sloop on the way home
It was recorded In purely perfunctory tech
I Ion that the Defender went about on the star
board tack at 245 that she tacked again at
816 and again at 337 She came about on
the port tack at 348 The wind had faded to a
lephyr and she glided Indolently through thb
I softly heaving sea There was silence on every
t I vessel that had gathered about the lightship
r The churning of propeller and the pounding of
I paddles had ceased The fleet was In a slum
I brous a mood a the aea
At last the sleek yacht went about on the
I Itai bard tack and headed for the line
She might have crossed on that tack but Mr
Iselln the representative of her syndicate of
owners had something to sey t the committee
before finishing As she approached the line
she lulled up within 200 feet of the comulttees
tug Spectators on several boats nearest t her
broke Into a cheer
Mr Istflln appeared In the waist of the ship
with an enormous megaphone The men aft
wand their hands towarcUhe cheerers t com
loom silence Before the vocal enthusiasm was
quenched Mr leclln had made several Ineffectual
effort to be heiird In
I elorl herd a moment was
h stillness over nil the fleet Then there came
I inanely through the iMtobo rd trumpet the
1 question
1 Do you want us to cross the line
I From the committee boat this response rang
dwn thee wind
Thu graceful sloop wheeled about on the star
board tack and cnmeit the Hue

I Then the pentup emotion of the disappointed
thousands found vent In salvos of cheers In the
uproar of tl ordunt whistles und the bang and

Although tho tugboat Wallace I Flint took
the Defender In tow the towing was a mere
formality until the rest sloop was well Inside
the Hook I The line I did lot pull a pound ns the
Defender was mnkin splendid progress under
her mainsail jib and club topsail Kvery now
and then one of the vessels of the fleet ran
alongside of the cup protector and gave her a
whistle while all hands on oar yelled and
Many of the excursion fleet stopped at Day

about the Valkyrie which was lying at anchor

might have been muoh chagrined From almost
every steamer there came a perfect tornado of
hoot and jeers which the sallormon were un
able t stand They all went Mow
Herbert C Led Hityn Dare I No
After the lace THE RUN tug ran up alongside
of the Defender t find out If any one knew the
reason for the Valkyries withdrawal In response
sponse t n query Mr Leeds shouted back
Wo dont know do you t
Some one shouted I guess It was a case of
heart failure Mr Leeds laughed and said
1 guess that was II
Immediately after the Defender dropped an
chor off Hay Ridge a SUN reporter boarded her I
Every one on board seemed pleased at winning
but they were all exceedingly angry at the dis
courteous way they had been treated through
the Valkyries wllhdrlwal
Mr Iselln when asked If he knew tho cause
of tho Valkyries withdrawal said emphati
I do not I wrote Lord Dnnraven a letter
yesterday In w > I told him I was willing to
cal Tuesdays rat n spite of the commit
tees decision and nftet In sail It over airaln
This Has after the rniiiinlttee decided In my fa
vrr Lord Duuraven wrote declining to sail th
race over
These letters I will not make public now I
was just as much surprise at his turning back
today a any one and all that I know about
his reasons for refusing to raco today Is what I
have read In the afternoon papers which I
havo just received I have no comment to
make on his action
Wo were told by the Regatta Committee
thai we had won the three races Now I am
through so far as the Cup races are concerned
The Defender will be taken In tow at 10
oclock tomorrow morning for Now Itocbelle
and I have made no decision a yet what I shall
do with her
I am glad we won the races and saved the
Cup but wo had hoped at least to have a race
for the trophy
Mr and Mrs Iselln then stepped on board a
naphtha launch and went over t the steam
yacht Neckan for supper
Nat Uerreshoff the famous designer of De
fender when congratulated on the American
yachts victory said
I am la we won tho three races but 1
dont think It was a fair thing for Lord Dun
raven to refuse t sail today His talk about
the excursion steamers Is u flimsy excuse There
a no crowding today
Mr Herreshoff said thnt the Defenders new
topmast worked ail right and added that he aid
not know If there would bo any more races
Capt Haft who was found etttliik his supper
on the HattIe Palmer said
I cant understand Lord Dunravens talk
about the excursion steamers Certainly he
could not have had a fairer chance than he had
today al the Mart here wen no boats In the
way and he had a dead beat back all tho way I
I am glad the whole thing Is over but I would
like t have a fair chance to race the Valkyrie
before she goes back Id show him
I told Mr Vanderbilt today that I was a
pr man but that I would put up 500 toward
making a match for 5000 a side to sail the
Valkyrie twenty miles to windward and back
NVel I think they have been used fairly
Mr helm offered to resell Tuesdays race
I dont know whats the
matter with them un
less they were a bit sore at the action of the
committee In sustaining our protest The com
mittees action was perfectly fair and ninety
nine out of a hundred yachtsmen will endorse
the committees verdict
When asked what he thought when he saw
the Valkyrie withdraw Capt Haft said
Well I thought they expected the wind to
haul t the sonthard and thinking It would b
a rah both ways that Ia a broad reach out
and a close one home they did not care to face
sure defeat and co withdrew
Tnat Is to say Captain they knew they
stood no chance with you
Thats II was the reply but n It turned
lOUt the wind was west by north onethird of tho
way out and then It hauled to the south when
we took In our spinnaker making It a broad
rah After we got to the mark the wind
hauled back again and we had a dead beat
Herbert C Leeds who was on the Defender
The Valkyries withdrawal was very unfor
innate and I think Lord Dunraveus action was
anything but complimentary to the Itegatta
Committee and cast a slur on the New York
Yacht Club and the American people
I understand roughly that the Vnlkvrlcs
withdrawal was caused by the crowding of ex
cursion steamers I saw no overcrowding aud
I understand tlat the waters oil Sandy Hook
we a public highway und 1 dont see how wo
can compel people to keep away The road was
clear at all times and I saw no Interference
Its an Insult to the American people Lord
Dunraven Is no sportsman I knew thai two
rears ago
In response t a warning admonition to b
careful what hu said Mr Leeds exclaimed
YesI I dont care If I do say It Its 01
Woodbury Kane said Well wo won but I
thInk Lord Dunravenn action Is anything but
Latham A KUk a prominent member of the
Americas Cup Committee and who represented
the New York Yacht Club on the Valkyrie
yesterday was seen at tho Atlantic Yacht Club
house last evenlnc When asked If he knew
the reason for Lord Dunravens withdrawal ho
I only know that Lord Dunraven sent a
letter to the committee What Its contents
were I do not know and under the circum
stances you must excuse me If I decline to din
cuss tho matter tt present
Dare Eilqaette Comraenilcd bat HU
Hpnrlimundilp Doubted
The bottom dropped out of the yacht race as a
popular ixcltcment with the refusal of the Val
kyrie to sail The hotel lobbies assumed their
regular appearance the talking yachtsmen hav
ing all disappeared
There were only a few members at the NeW
York Yacht Club In the aftetuoon From one
group came the exclamation the stentorian
tones of Commodore W L Brooks
Its mighty small I

A I Junes WM all smiles I I think It all
very funny the manner or this withdrawal
he said I never saw a clearer course and
there was no excuse for dropping out on the
score of crowding Dunraven showed from the
first that he had decided t give up and the etiquette
quette of tho proceeding was perfect I think
he Is very lorry over Valkyries defeat
Nlel Olsen A bustling about In a jovial
mood Well It I gives us the cup by a raoe a
judgment and a walkover was his reply toe
question I have seen every contest since the
first In 51 when we won the trophy but never
saw a race decided like this Instead of the
hard battle we expected things havo been quite
different V
I the withdrawal of Dunraven Is I a test of
true sportsmanship I dont want to be a sports
man said Secretary Olsen He had a bow of
red white and blue In his buttonhole and
was seemingly glad t know that the cup was
safe on any terms
Later on at 740 Commodore Smith Chair
man of the Cup Committee rushed Into the
club He seemed full of business
Will you have anything to give out asked
the reporter
WiI I You just wait until our meeting t
With this hasty statement the Commodore
went Into the library where he met A Cass
Cnnflcld and a whispered conclave was started
Cheater flrlswold of the Itegatta Committee
arrived next with John H husk They called
up B Nicholson Kane and arranged for both
committees to dine at the Knickerbocker Club
and to meet at the yacht club later
Two hours later nt 10 oclock the committeemen
marched Into the club house In a
men murhe Int II pr
cession that was unintentionally quite im
pressive Commodore Kane and Irving Grin
nell marched In front and then came the others
two by two A Can Canfleld who had not
dined aL the Knickerbocker arrived a few mo
ments later The two committees were now
complete and tho men went up stairs t the
library for their deliberations
The committees were still In session at J
oclock when Mr COliver Iselln drove up t
the club In a carriage with 1ra Iselln Com
modore James D Smith made the following
statement soon after Mr Iselln had joined the
Thero Is no condition of the agreement a t
sailing tho cup races that has not been strictly
lived up to by the Regatta Committee
of tho New York Yacht Club The
endeavor to Interpose now conditions a
few hours before an appointed race by
Lord Dunraven should have hardly been
attempted certainly not Insisted upon to tho
extent of Imposing now terms which If not ac
ceded to might result In his withdrawing from
tho rare If ho so decidedBatter reaching and
going over the line
There was no course left but t start the
yachts by the committee nor could any course
be taken but to have the Defender sail over the
course This under the rules made her the win
ner today Mr Ifelln offered to Ball the raceof
SspU 10 over thus making I no race which
Lord Dunraven declined today by letter
I can enter Into no discussion of the reasons
actual I UK Lord Dunraven In declining to co on
with the races He is a far better Judge than I
ns to the course he should pursue and If ho Is
satisfied I certainly must b
After talking with the committees for a half
hour Mr Iselln left He stopped lone enough In
the lobby to say that Mr Smith had correctly
stated the fact
A few minutes before midnight Irving Grin
nell said thnt the Kegntta Committee would
make no public report fey had reported De
fender the winner of the series to the Americas
Cup Committee which In turn would report to
I the club TiiO couimlttrciutu dixjaed soon

There were abont 050 souls on board the At
lantic Yacht Clubs bat Gay Head and a more
disappointed crowd of yovhtlnc enthusiasts
never returned to tho city It was certainly a
setback the day could b called an Ideal one
The crowd set up awall when the Kncllsh yacht
came about after crossing the line and some of
the comments made by those aboard did not reflect
Sect any credit on Lord Dunraven
The yaehty ones had everything arranged A
brIndle bulldog sat on thnstrlngpleceof the dock
just previous to tho hOI departure Borne me
ventured t remark that he thought Lord Dun
raven would carry off a victory today This
remark wan no sooner made than a splash was
heard The excitement rau high for a minute
or two and finally the bulldog was fished out of
the river 1 was he who had caused the excite
ment and It really looked a though the dog
had become disgusted at the remark and tried
to take his life The animal was brought aboard
and was to have acted as a mascot but be lost a
After the Defender had covered more than
half the distance TUB SUN reporter overheard a
conversation between two of the French wait
ers which nearly ended In a row
one Zee Defender lee now In front remarked
No eet Iss Monsieur Dunravens vessel
spounted the other
They would probably have Issued challenges
fora duel on the spot had not friends stepped In
and explained to them that there was only one
boat In It Doth looked surprised
Tho member of the Atlantic Yacht Club were
very much aroused over the action of the Eng
lisbmen und asugxeitlon was made to raise I
purse of from ten to twenty thousand dollars
and t challenge the English bout to u series of
races with the Defender The
ruces suggestion met
with approval and dozen or more members
expressed their willingness t contribute sums
toward the puree there and then In the party
were lien Thornai L Watson Fleet Captain of
tho Atlantic Yacht Club Col I K Austen
Jefferson Hogan J L Bllm J J Ihclpa F A
Itch and Thomas W rcartall
The question was then carried to the Atlantic
Yacht Clubs Itexatta Committee who were on
board and the lattc body went Into session
They were authorized to Issue a challenge for a
Usl between thu Defender and Valkyrie to sail
ono or three races as the owners may decide
Itoth Mr Iselln nnd Lord Dunraven will he com
munlcated with at the earliest moment The
committee will Issue a challenge for a weep
stake but tie club will offer a cup to the value
of not less I than 1000
Thu challenge will cal for a race anywhere
between fcandy Hook anti larblehead under the
rules of either the New York Atlantic or

Irobably the most Indignant person among
the thrones of excursionists which followed the
Defender yesterday was an Englishman on
board the Now York Yacht Clubs steamer St
Johns The visitor who Is I said to be a em
ber of Parliament arrived on the Majestic yes
terday morning having come hero purjwoely to
see the last of the yacht races He Immediately
started hustling for n ticket nit the Ht Johns
and at H45 oclock lit let n minutes beforo the
steamer Ml her dock at the foot of Hector
street got DUO Hu was considerably flustered
hel he finally got on board and sat down In a
corner and begun mopping the perspiration i
from his face 1
Hy Had sir he remarked to the man next
to him think of oniing 3000 miles to see this
ra > e and then nearly gutting loft
During tho trip out to the starling point tho
fiiiiru Liuuttioia emjbodj that would listen to
l L LJ
him abut his long journey to sea the race and
how near he came t missing I lie was so
happy however over getting A ticket that
couldnt contain himself When the Valkyle
crossed the line under a jib and a mainsail and
those on board the boat began to howl ns they
realised what It meant the Englishmans face
was a study
ly gad sin ho exclaimed Is I It possible
the ca dodging It Then a the Valkyrie
turned back and there was no longer any doubt
of her Intentions he cried out
This Is I the way yon represent England
It Ob you shall answer t tho English people
for this you shall answer
For nearly an hour the Englishman kept up
below hit tirade of abuse and then ho disappeared
ILI Is doubtful If a more disappointed lot of
persons ever came Into New York than the I
thousands of excursionists who returned from
following tho Defender over the course yester
day Over 60000 persons paid from 2 to tfi
apiece to see the race Lord Dunraveus atti
tude was a mystery They couldnt understand
why he declined t sail after going out to the
starting point unless It was because he thought
the excursion boats would Interfere with him
There seemed t b no reason for this fear a
far a anybody could see because the boats took
Particular pains to keep out of tho way of tim
English yacht Then again It was evident to
moat of the excursionists that the Valkyrie had
no Intention of sailing any way for she Ia
noeuvred around an hour before the race with
only her mainsail and two Jib aot
As the time for tho race approached and no
further preparations were made ou tho English
boat the excursionists howled In derision
When the preparatory gun was fred and still
no attempt was mode to set the topsail or to run
out the spinnaker boom tho spectators were
convinced that Lord Dunraveu did not Intend
to race No ono was surprised when the Valky
rie turned back after crossing the line but
every one was angry The people yelled and
howled the boats blow shrill blasts on their
whistles while one little steam launch pos
sessed of that and down
a sleutn pipe ran uu Ind
tho scale like a circus calllono tooted In u fasli
n Hn nun tote
Ion which sounded much like a derisive laugh
and wound up by whistling the first few bars of
Home Sweet Home
Very few bat followed the English yacht on
her retreat but all went sailing after the De
fender It was poor kind of sport watching a
boat Indulge In a walkover but the excursion
ists amused themselves by cheering the Ameri
can boat about every five minutes While
many believed that Lord Dunraven had ground
for refusing to race many condemned him for
not announcing his Intensions beforehand
On the New York Yacht Clubs steamer
everybody seemed to b disgusted over the
fiasco Among those on board were Fred Geb

steamed alongside of the Patrol In the lower
bay and the boats kept abreast of each other
for about a mile The Conqueror than forged

time to hear the first gun fred In the committee
boat at 11 10 oclock Those on board noticed
lat while the Defender was In racing trim
with her sails set the Valkyrie was railing
about under jib and mainsail All hands won
dered why the Brush boat did not raise her
club topsail I was then within a few minutes
of etartlmr time ant the opinion was freely ex

of weakening remarked Major Klpp
Tho Patrol followed the Defender over the
course The large fleet of excursion boats kept
well away from tho racer The Patrol reached
the turning flag abut a quarter of an hour b
fore the Defender
On the return trip an Interesting Incident occurred
curred Policemen Durkln and Klute who
were on the upper deck caught Ilm1 bird In
one of tho lifeboats The llttln thing was
greatly exhausted After drinking mine water
and eating a lot of bread crumbs it became
more lively Carl Iluckhol said It was a
young thrush Others thought It was 1 mock
ingbird It Is supposed that II flew off an e
curslon boat The the boat said It
curslol but men on iid was
a mascot and It was christened Defender The
crew are going to keep the bird on the boat
A Prominent YneMimnn Think He Preju
diced Iord llmirnvrn
One of the most prominent members of the
New York Yacht Club and I man who Is
nearer to the Defender syndicate than anyone
else said last evening
1 am quite certain thnt theje would not have
been a much trouble over the cup races this
year as there has been had Ixird Dunraxen
acted solely on his own notions of true sport
and fair play As n matter of face Mr Arthur
llennln hA been rather the power behind the
throne He Is I believe If the truth were
known here the personal representative
as lenolu1 relresentuLvo of
the other members of the syndicate who built
the Valkyrie
I I am correctly Informed Mr Gtennle has
lost no opportunity to Impress upon the mind of
Lord Dunravrn the fact that the Yankees are
fond of sharp practice ant do not hesitate to
resort to It on all occasions Ills constant ef
forts tu prejudice the Earls mind have made

Its comment on the decision of the New York
HegatU Committee upon thin protest of the De
