leaders were Jubilant. Tho Senator
was aa happy, and celebrated by drlv.

The generous pralso which greeted
his summons to the 1920 standard
filled him with gratitude. Ho knows
he enters the campaign at tho head
of a reunited party from whoso ranks

Is to drive hard and fast and he looks
to the party leaders to follow closely.
Republican delegations will begin their
pilgrimages to the Harding porch one

One of tho very earliest telegrams of

club topsail carried by the Shamrock
yesterday that handicap was cut down
to 6 minutes 40 seconds. By corrected
time, therefore, the Bristol boat beat
the Lipton pet by 9 minutes 58 sec

breeze that held true for tho major

a twelve knot blow, which put both

Details of Each Lejr.
On the first leg, In a wind light at the
start, but strengthening, Resolute .beat
Shamrock 1 minute 44 seconds actual
On the second leg, a reach, the wind
still freshening, Shamrock gained and
beat Resolute 50 seconds. She sailed
the ten miles In 49 minutes 51 seconds,
which Is better than twelve nautical
miles an hour, and remarkably .fast
The third leg was marred by a sharp
squall In which both yachts shortened
sail. Shamrock at first overhauled
Resolute and at one time led for a few
moments, but afterward Resolute drew
away again nnd finished first.
The American yacht was cheered more
than at any time during the series,
showing that her victory was popular.
When Shamrock finished she, too, was
greeted by screeching sirens, whistles
and cheers. She had done well, but had
been outhandled and In some way out-
Resolute demonstrated that she Is a
wizard turning to windward, and for a
boat so much smaller than the Sham
rock her performance In reaching was
marvellous. Her able skipper, Charles
Francis Adams, and his aids, Robert W,
Emmons, John Parkinson and others,
with the crew, worked like a wonderful
piece of machinery. Those In charge
showed raro Judgment all through the
contest and all orders and changes of
sails were carried out with a smartness
that could not have been excelled.
Adams Oat to Win.
Sometimes Mr. Adams might have
been criticised perhaps for taking
chances, particularly so in the squall
on the last leg. He hardly favored the
yacht at all, driving her on, evidently
bent on finishing first If possible. He
coutd have eased her, taken things com
fortably and allowed Shamrock to finish
and still have held the race safe. An
accident would have given the cup to
However, tho American people like
pluck. All outside the Hook yesterday
fully appreciated tne situation ana were
delighted to see the American yacht go
through the contest and finish first
without parting a rope yarn.

Throughout the race the Victoria, as
usual, was a centre of attraction for
sightseeing craft. Her good naturcd

Barton's Tactics a Pasale.
The Shamrock partisans on the Vie-
torla were aa much puzzled as any of th
other yachting parties to find n reason
for Skipper Burton's tactics on the last
leg. When he took In his club tonsall
most of them thought there had been an
accident of some sort.
Commodore Jarvis of the Royal
Canadian Yacht Club, one of tlt most
experienced yachtsmen In Canada, said
he thought Ilurton figured he had lost
anyhow and was taking a gsmbler's
chance, A fquall threatened and If It
came and the Resolute got In trouble
from not shortening sail. Shamrock
might possibly win through tho other
boat's mishap, Mr. Jarvis said.
Sir Thomas, however, would not ac

But as Sir Thomas himself has said,
yacht racing Is an uncertain pastlmo
and therein lies much of its charm. Sev
eral popular Illusions which the experts
have done much to foster were blown out
of the water during yesterday's sensa
tional race. Since the challenger won
the first trial over the triangular course
many persons have expressed the opin
ion that In that particular type of racing,
because it Is likely to afford two ten mile
reaches and only one ten mile leg of
windward work, the Lipton boat was. an
almott certain winner.
Old Notions Go Overboard.
Yesterday's race exploded this notion
thoroughly. In the first leg all thrash

on her adversary 1 minute 48 seconds.
During the second leg. which was wholly
a broad reach, supposedly the chal
lenger's fastest point of sailing, the best

the goal with their elapsed time Iden

now for the first time of two successive
