S xvard of nearly thlrty-llvo mllea from Uron-
H ton's Itect Lightship to ltnce Hock Unlit, soma
Hf flvo miles nway from this port. Columbia to-
H day bent Dotondorn eond eight minuted, nnd
illil It fairly, stilcndlilly and to tho satisfaction
M of every ono aboard of hor. to say nothing of
m nini) of hor admirers vv ho wore lucky enough
f to be able to follow her.
lh wind was blowing from the southwest
sometimes fully twonty-fivo miles an hour, and
there wns a sen on which tnndo tho boats bow
to It In srlto of themselves, and sent tho spray
flying hitch o or thorn. Thoy wero under lower
ealls only, a comfortable sailing rig. and made
(.pleudld weather of It. Defondor has nlwoys
been noticeably good in this sort of w ?i k. and
to-day she kept hor record, but Columbia
wont her just a little, bit bettor. It was tho
name story as In their other meetings, enough
W of an ndantaco on Columbia's part to show
that sho can beat Dofender In all sorts of
chances and on about all points ot sallluc.
espceinlly to windward.
iesterday tho prediction was made by Tiir
I Si's correspondent tint Columbia would cutry
her sail j ust as woll as Defender when It breezed

m Columbia not only justified tho expectations
W about hor, but did it so handsomely as to mnko
V It certain that Sh.iinrock must also bo a
I J wonder to beat her Tho trial to-day was tho
mn best that the yachts have had, and to-night
(( i Columbln could carry tho money of any bet-
. i tine man who know a yaclit from n coasting
y schooner. She Is a coin, nnd no mistake
The race was on soon after 12 o'clock. De
fender had cot under way a couplo of hours bo-
y fore nnd had loafed leisurely out to tho llght-
11 ship under jib and mainsail Columbia had
j porno alone later In tow of her tender. St.
l Michaels, and cast off her tow when fnlrlv In
lull the open sea Sho was under threo lowersnlls.
WI Then Defender set her staysail and was ready
hAl for trouble. Ilotli boats looktd excellently lit.
Wa I Columbia's mainsail has been veiy close to n
Uf I perfect fit. to becln with. To-day It did not
I P have a flaw anywhere to which tho most erltl
J'' cal oyo could object. Her head sails wore also
II In good shape, and she was tho racer In every
M bit of her canvas as well as In her spars, hull
V and rigging. Sho fo-imed a iiieturo to delight
tho eyo ns she bowed gracefully to tho
tfl swell coming in from tho southwest,
vj throvvlns the spray In fountains from either
f side ot her cleanly cut bow. and yet never
I stopplne w ben tho seas hit her. Defender was
I doing much tho same thing, nnd if Columbia's
, extra foot of Learn was ever to count against
her In a seaway now was tho chance, tor
tho trouble to show Itself. Hut no trou
ble came, sho was fully ns easy In taking tho
f-en ns Defender, and thero was nothing to
chooso between thorn in this respoet. Every
body on the boats was in oilskins as a protcc
tlon from the occasional drlrle of rain and tho
, flying spray. F.ven Mrs. Iselln. as t-hn sat In
A Columbia's companlonway. was protected In

much as her sailor husband.
As for tho weather It was no day for tho
j. yachtsman who prefers smooth water nnd a
" sunnysky. Heavy clouds burnt low all around
the horizon and wero but little lighter ovnr-
head. They gave forth occasional splashes of
rain and allowed not oven tho slightest chanco
for n lock at the sun. From tho southwest
ward, whero the lighthouse on l'olnt
Judith showed dimly In the ho7o on the
horizon, came a long nnd rolling swell that was
1 magnificent In its strtngth. while topping it
were vvhlto-cnppod and choppy waves th.it

It Is very probablo that boforo Columbia and

yachts will race on tho Hound under tho

dato for tho raco has not yet been fixed, but it
will probably be July 8 A prominent membor
of tho club snld yestcrdny
"It was all nrranced that If Columbia and
Defendor racod off Sandy Hook on July 1 they
would rneo ngaln at Larelitnont on July 4 nnd

the Now York race has. of course, altered these
plans, but I don't think It will affect the ltlver
slde Yacht Club Mr Iselln had aereed to raco
with us. nnd I think ho Is still willing to do so.
There has been some correspondence about
tho raco, and wo expect to havo tne matter set

Thero has been somo objection to racing nt

Enlistments to Ho Made nt Itegutnr Army
Recruiting Stntloni - It Is Hoped to
I.nnd the 10,000 Men In Mnnlln Ilefnre
tho End of the l'reirnt Rnlny Senium
WAsniNOTON, Juno VS. The army In tho
riilllpninoi Is to b Increased to 40.000 men
at least by the enlistment of volunteers under
the authority given the President In the army
Hcorganl7atlon net More men will, however,
be sent to Mnnlln If they ore neoded. It was
definitely decided that there should bo 10,000
additional men enlisted, including those ob
tained by Gen. Otis from nmong tho troops'of
his command whose torms of service have ex
pired. Thce'volunteers. who will bsln excess
of the (15.000 men authorised by lair as thn
maximum strength nf the regular army, will
probably bo divided Into sevon regiments. As
told In The Run this morning, tho volunteers
will lie enlisted In tho samo manner ns regu
lars aro enlisted nt the seventy regular army
recruiting stations by officers of the regular
service. Later on special recruiting stations
(or volunteers mav be established nnd ofllceis
ot the new regiments placed In charge The
enlistments are to be mndo as fast as possible,
and It Is hoped to get the additional 10.0(K)
men landed nt Manila before the end of, the
present rnlny season
These details wero determined on nt a con
fereme held at tha White House to-day be
tween President McKinley, Secretary Alger.
Adit -Gen Corbin and Col. Charts lllrd. the
(Juartnrmaster in charge of the water trans
portatlon service Col. Illrd told just how
mnny men could bo sent to the Philippines be
fore the end of tho ralnv season and Gsn Cor
bin explained overythlng In connection with
recruiting. Tho regular army, It is supposed,
has been recruited up to the nuthorbM
strength, but this cannot be ascertained defi
nitely until all the returns are In.
Inquiries were, sent to-day to ascertain from
recruiting officers how many men they have
enlisted up to date If the regular army Is ur
to the limit tho recruit ng of the voluntoers
will beeln Immediately, orders tj that effect
having nlioady been sent The military au
thorities believe that tho entire additional force
will be recruited In less than two month, at the
most without Incieaslng tho number of re
cruiting stations, but a much better record
than that is expected The men secured by
Gen Otis for the two skeleton regiments which
he la orgatiling'at Manila from among soldiers
whoso terms of enlistment have expired will
be Included in 'he 10.0(H) new troops, and the
two skeleton regiments will be filled bv rc
crultu secured In the Cnlted States. It Is
probablo that the authority of tho recruiting
officers will bo extended so as to Include
enough men foi seven Infantry regiments of
full war strength, or lO.fitK) men Tho llrst re
cruits, according to present expectations, will
be sent to Manila as soon as possible, and tho
additional men onllsted nsslgned to the five
regiments to be orgnuized In this country.
At tne White House conference the trans
portation problem was talked over, and It nas
decided to make overy elTort to secure addi
tional ships at otue. Tho (Quartermaster's
Department has n plan which It be'leves will
result In getting a sufficient number nt ves
sels, but what this plnn Is has not been dis
closed With th eo additional ehlpa the vol
unteers can be placed at Manila. It Is snld. be
fore the end of tho rainy season Tho Idea of
the Administration Is to placo enough men In
Manila during the period when sickness is
grentcsttoiiiKurcKten Otis an ollectlvo lighting
force of .'1(1,00(1 men at nil times. According to
his latest despatch. 12 percent of the troopsare
111. This Includes tho wounded. Ten thon.
sand additional men. Increasing tbs army 'o
40.000. would leave a margin ot 2." cor cent, to
over all those disabled. Thus, with as mnnv
nslone-fourih of hla men unabletto perform ser
vice, he would havo H0.00O foldlers alwavs
ready for active duty In nil his despatches on
thn subiect he ha said that .'iO.COO men would
be enough to quell the Insurrection
No decision was reached at the hltn Houe
conference as to the manner of selecting ofll
cers for the .olunteers, In fact, the innfcr
was not considered, but It will. It was said to
day, bo talked over at the regular Cabinet
meeting on Friday, Gen. litis wns Informed
at tho time that he was authorized to enlist
voluntaers In the Philippines that he would
have the 'election of the ifll"rs. Some of the
Wnr Depirtment officials ate In favor of au
thorising Gen Otis to belect tho officers of the
entire seven regiments from among toldlsrs
now In the Philippines. It Is held that this
would not only serve to reward soldiers who
have rendered meritorious set vice, but would
provide nflleers who have been under lire, who
are familiar with 'he territory where fighting
l going on and the tactics of the Filipinos,
and would encourneo many of the enlisted
men ot thleStnte troops now In the Philippines
to re-enlist in the hope of securing eimmls.
slous (in the other hand, somo of tho lileh
olllclalsare In fivor of appointing officers In
this eountrv. and there l reason to belleva
that this plan will be 'adopted. Thoe who
support It s-iy that there are many men who
ervcd in the volunteer service In the -p-inlh-American
war who would make excellent ofll
cers of the new-volunteor eommnn Is and that
leglments mustered In nt home should have
ofllcers to sui erlntcnd t heir or-'anintlon.

He has been frequently requested to join Agul

The (ai t that the rebel leader has sent such a

was great distress at several of tho closed

simply permits tho landing of food, and a close
