h liad been behaving splendidly all tho way
g down from llrlstol, carrying her sail well,
I stoorlng easily, backing anlck, nnd looking
I ery handsome, but a comparison of speed wns
I With an 'oaay sweep from a windward posl-
I tlon Columbia was placed on Defender's
J xveather quarter, and yot so far astern, nearly
200 feet, as to give to Defender n clear wind
B and all tho chanco she could possibly ask. In
H a regular race Defender's skipper would hae
fl considered his chanco of buckwlndlng the
other boat nn excellent one, and If ho hail tho
fi faster boat could havo crawled nwny from his
Y opponent and finally crossed her bow. Hut In
I this caso it was Columbia and not Defender
I that was tho faster.
;L As Columbia swung Into plaeo for tho finish
M nnd settled down to hor work it was nn oxelt-
w' ing moment for overy one concerned On ono
sldo wna a boat of well-tried speed, on tho
1. 1' other was an unknown quantity, be mtlful and
I speedy looking. Itlstrue, but now for tho first
I time In a place where her actual sailing qual
la Itles could be gauged. Doth boats were under
vn tho same sail, mnlnsnll jib and staysail, nnd
m there was breozo enough to drive thein nearly
III ten miles nn hour ocu when close hauled.
I On board were tho men to whom tho defence.

am astern wero steam nnd sailing yachts with
7jb many close obsorvers on board.
! Each skipper felt the Importance of tho mo
ment, nnd it Is not to be supposed that C'npt.
lthodes let any of his skill go by or that Her
roshoft did not got every bit of speed out of
Columbia. And so as the yachts forged ahead
on tho starboard tack from under the shore
at Dutch Island and headed for Fort
Adams every ono was on the alert to
note their behavior. At first tho lssuo of the
little race, seimxl to be In doubt, Columbia
J was indeed looking n little hleher, but was she
1 going any faster than Defender? Could she bo
I pulled out of tho bad position In which she had
I purposely beon placed. These woro tho uues-
tions to be answered.
J Beforo two minutes of sailing the answers
were at hand. Slowly but surely from a
steamer following to leeward could Colum
bia's bowsprit bo seen creeping up toward
Defender's stem. Then it passod and crept by,
- bit by bit, by mast nnd headstnys. until It
I finally showed clear ahead, and that tho boat
I which carried it had nn undisputed lead.
jf At the same time. Columbia had worked out
Y to windward ns well as drawn ahead, and had
A not only pointed hlghor, but had footed faster
'I than Defendor nnd had finally tnken her wind
and given such n blanketing to her as .-ho
I had never beforo received In nil her
racing experience. In less than ten minutes
I Columbln hail demonstrated her steed, bad
made Kind the hearts of everyone Interested

itH excitement and its fair test of the new
boat's speed for tho time and trouble to which
It had put nt least sonio of tho ob-

I warrant the belief that Columbia will bent
