As Uiey Jogged letaurelv down the bay and nut through the Narrows the morning hare una Playing mUchlevoua pranks with vlsl bl'lty, but It was easy yet to see a mile or so ahead. Excnralon IloaU Vanish. But when the Semmes, the destroyer carrying the morning newspaper men. nosed her way slowly down to the light hln the outloclt wan changing preedlly. One by one the excursion steamships, which haj been BllmPS'd vaguely cmsier in? about the old beacon vessel, van ished as bv the touch of a magic wand. The police tug John F- Hylan. which a moment before had been echoing to the cheers of a merry party aa they hailed fclr Thomas ltanlng forward from the bridge of tho Victoria, disappeared aa though the pea had opened a path for her to Davy Jones s mcKer. so aia me ntnnrh vacht chartered Hy the Irish hnrnnpt himself. Then the lightship Relief, which has taken the place temporarily 01 me regular Ambrose llaht vessel and which Is painted a dirty brick red Instead of a saffron yellow, suddenly turned a ghostly .pallid gray and then was swallowed up In the void. At half past 11 o'clock not one vessel could be seen from the deck of nnother. The fog blanket had become on opaque, Impenetrable thing. Though the ob servation 'fleet was smaller than those of last week, there were many scores of vessels, large and small, crowded within the area of a few square miles. Others, tooting their warning whistles, were stealing slowly down the bay, feeling their way daintily forward. From the great fog horn of tho lightship at in , tervala of fifteen seconds came tho mournful cadence of her fog alarm. The hoarse, melancholy warning was groan ing only a few cable lengths beyond tho sharp prow ot tho Semmes and five other destroyers, to say nothing of coast guard ships and crowded excursion boats wallowed In tho Imminent vicinity. Of course none of these craft was at anchor, ail were floundering about blindly, tooting whistles, ringing bells. And from the bridge of none of them could a cautious captain see what perchance loomed directly on his weather bow 300 yards beyond his nose. The fact that no accident has to be recorded Is con vincing testimony to the trustworthiness of the skippers. Voff Lifts and Dlsnpprara. Postponement signals were hung out from the yards of tho committee boat Barryton before the fog blotted It out. Aboard tho Semmes her passengers fretted Impatiently. "They'll wait an hour or two," 83 id onn of long experience, "and then they'll 1iave to declare It oft for the day.'.' His gloomy prediction was negatived almost aa soon as It was spoken. The breeze from the south, freshened per ceptibly. Then, like the rising of a vast drop curtain, the fog rolled upward and 4away. It was a verltallc'"lransforma ' tlon scene. As the aun broke through the dun, gray pall there lay the nautical panorama right under your eyes. It was like the rising of a curtain on some huife and beautifully wrought stage spectacle. One noted with surprise the close proximity of the ships which had nosed their precarious way In close beside your own craft during the eclipso and whose presence never had been suspected save because of an uncertain toot occasionally out of the abysmal fog. To those aboard tho Semmes, which had reached the scene Just as the mists closed down, It was the first glimpse the morning had .-forded of the trim sloops. But there' they were stars In the wectacle, await ing the applause that Is their right slowly, gracefully gliding to and fro to windward of the line established by the lightship and the Barryton. They, as always, were In the spotlight of the pic ture. But to the northward, alt decked out In their signal squares and pennants, many of them flylnsr all the bunting they had In their lockers, lay the sightseeing fleet In Its holiday garb. Its Individual members river and sound steamship, tugboats, Coney Island craft, barffes, two or three trim schooner yachts, and an Impressive flotilla of motor cruisers were clustered as thickly as files about a peach tart. Some of them, while the fogbank had concealed their felonious purpose, had quietly stolen in toevdose to the Imag inary line that must be kept Bacred to the exclusive use of tho Cup rivals. Now that the renewed sunshine had betrayed them, the fussy destroyers, submarine chasers and coastguard sh'lfls, policemen of the ocean boulevard, began to bluster about, uttering angry, staccato blasts which said as plainly aB words : "Come, move on, there, before I run you In I" Perr Airplane an (he Scene. Many surprises were revealed by the lifting of the fog screen. One of the most pleasant of them was Sir Thomas' chartered yacht, Victoria, lying only a biscuit toss off the starboard beam of the Sommes. Sir Thomas leaned over the bridge and waved his cap with courtesy and enthusiasm In response to the greetings shouted to him from tho press men on board. He was in his iM'ial buoyant, optimistic mood. Tho race had not yet been sailed. After that disappointing result he did not hesitate to express his appreciation of the splendid handling of the Resolute, alike by skipper and crew. The air squadron, for the first time. was not part of the picture. Only ono or two airplanes careened above the ruccrs Instead of a whole flock of them, a.id the picturesque blimp, which had been a faithful attendant upon the star performer daily, had bumped her ell very noso upon the rocky reefs of llockaway and was, for tho time being, out of commission. Sunshine had conquered the foe' and a gentle flve-mllo breczo was fanning me cnecK? wnen me yncfits got away. Resolute In the lead. The first leg of tne triangle took them, as did the "Wednesday event, down tha Jersey coast to the first mark, which lay about live miles orr ivong Branch. The ex curslon fleet, with Mr. Morgan's black nulled corsair leading, got under way and followed like a pack of hounds after the(r quarry. As ,the racers stood down toward the Highlands their course took them di rectly toward a big four maeted schooner, a none too common sight nowadays. Under a full spread of can vas she was bowling along up tha coast, and she must have had Imperative busi ness, for she never checked her head way to look at the race over which two continents are all aqulver. Their course took them down among the lobster rota and the fishermen. Three miles or more off shore the Sem mes had to sound her warning blast to order off the course a stolid pair of salt water Izaak Waltons, who were Resolute, Cup leisurely pulling their long sweeps and propelling their dory out toward the White Wonder's line of approach. It was tho same old story over again. In thin beating to windward the Reffb lute Is In a class by herself. The Irish craft Is not In this kind of competition. The way tho Herrcshoff creation points up Into the wind looks like witchery. Tho further the hunt progressed the greater was the distance the Sham rock fell off to leeward. Her skipper did not Indulgo In any of those zigzag hitches with which he enlivened Wednes day's proceedings In his effort to get out from under the American's, lee. , wun a breeze increased now to eignt miles an hour both yachts were footing fast. There was white water cascading from their bows, and their crews lay lined up like boxed sardines packed sldo by side, prone on the sloping decks along tho weather rail. Tims they swept down to tho first turn, beside which stood the Corsair llko a guardian angel of the coal mark. The Resolute here gave one of her prettiest demonstrations of superiority In team work and alert seamanship. She had a lead of more than a mlnuto and a half as she swung easily around the mark buoy, but so keen was her crew that before she had quite made the turn the baby Jib topsail she had been carrying In her windward work was taken In, and she had not yet squared away for the second leg of the Journey when her big reaching Jib topsail waa broken out and pulling flawlessly. When the Shamrock came around It took her crew nearly three minutes to perform tho same feat Each yacht, as It rounded the buoy, was saluted lustily by every vissel In the pursuing fleet that had any kind of vocal abilities from a squeak to a roar. On the broad reach down seaward to tho second ten mile post the wind In creased to a twelve knot pace. Under its Impact the Irish yacht began to' pick up a few seconds of those sho had lost In the thrash Into the wind. But she was not gaining fast enough to overhaul the fleet footed Resolute. Ran Into naming- Mist. Both sloops wera healed over hand somely now and the weight of .the wind still was growing. At 3 :30 It wan again growing hazy, a portent probably of the coming squall. The sky piercing top masts of both yachts were lost in the overhanging fog screen. Again half the observation fleet that was trailing along a mile or more ,ln the rear waj wiped from the field of vision as effectually as though all had been mink "without a trace." But what mattered baffling mists? Like a pair of ghostly wraiths the Cup contestants now are charging down to ward the marking buoy two boat lengths off the stern of the Corsair. The mist rolls uprtard and away In time for them to sight tho glistening cone of the buoy's top. Then both sloops are speailng for It under the full spread of tnelr big reaching sails. As the second turn was rounded each boat won a whistled salute from everv vessel In the observation flotilla, and somewhere off to the northward boomed the sound of a cannon. Once more the wind gained weight nnd vim. It was estimated now to be at least blowing at a twelve knot gait The whltecaps were dancing now on every created wave. It was a day fit to toot the staunchness and seaworthiness of every spar, every shred ot rigging. For weeks we have been told that the Llpton yacht could not really do her self credit until she got a wind that would bowl her over well to leeward and bring her "down to her true rac ing lines." Well. If she was not down to those racing lines yesterday In the third leg of the race she must carry them deeper than her freak twenty-six foot centreboard. She was awash from bobstay to taff rail.

Ish a black thunder head loomed to tho northward and angry muttering ac companied It Captain "Bully" Norton of the Semmes, famous Navy quarter back In his day, snapped some orders from the bridge of the destroyer and In a twinkling everything movable on deck was made fast. Over the bow gun and the deck hatches protective tarpaulins were swathed and laced, Vnd everything was made snug and taut for tho com ing outfly of wind. It came, and with It a brief but penetrating drive of troplonl rain that reminded many of tho weather of the first race day, when tho Yankeo sloop parted her throat halyard and forfeited tho race Nothing parted aboard the Resolute yesterday. She met the squall without taking In her club topsail, and by su perior seamanship and more agile hand ling of her canvas managed to Increase her already commanding lead during the harassing blow. It Is for another to tell In greater detail of the Resolute'a su perior handling. Enough to say here that when she swept across the finish, as the sun was thrusting through the storm clouds, her bellowing balloon Jib trembled with the volume of the din. It waa a roar and screech to which every bass whistle and every snrleklng siren In he fleet contributed In generous quota. None spoke more vociferously than the hoarse metallic throat of the Victoria, as Sir Thomas eaned from the bridge and saluted the victor.

They both said they never had seen such a clear, "free course In any races on the other side. The "sporting Instinct" of, our ladlca like wlso amazed Sir Thomas Dewar. "Your 'ladles arouse my astonish ment," he ad. "They get up early In the morning and come, downto these races day after day. About onco would finish a European lady." There was a larger party of guests on the Victoria to-day than Wednesday. Among- them wero Sir John and Lady Ferguson, Col. S. Seymour Bulloch, Charles Fleming Day, Miss Xan Jarvls, Misses Eunice and AgncB Fitzgerald, daughters of former Mayor Fitzgerald of Boston, and Miss Eugenie Whltmorc. George Kcssler of Philadelphia, who when a newsboy seventeen years ago sold Sir Thomas a paper at Wayne Junction for a dollar, which he bet and lost on Shamrock III., was on board aa Sir Thomas's guest. He Is now a coal hoist foreman, and It pleased Sir Thomas to bo photographed with htm when the photographic squad made its dally charge. HUGE CROWD TO SEE DECIDING CONTEST Tie Gives Added Interest to Race To-day. ' There was a marked Increase In the number of persons who went down the bay yesterday In sightseeing boats to view the yacht race. Though the crowds were much smaller than during the first two racca, the Increased In terest seemed to presage an even larger attendance for to-day, when the last race of the series between the Shamrock and the Resolute will be sailed. Reports received by tho police from the various docking places Indicated that all the boats which went to the races returned without unusual Incident. A strong tide, coupled with a heavy fog which covered the harbor like a blan ket, made the Incoming boats very slow In reaching port The Plymouth of he Fall River line, with 500 yachting enthusiasts on board, was the first to return. On board the Plymouth was Mrs. P. D. Armour, wife of tha director of the Union Stockyarda at Chicago. She motored hero from Southampton yesterday .with her brother. "Teddy" Condon. Major Henry Sanford and many members of the New York Yacht Club were also on the Plymouth. The police boat John F. Hylan with eeventy-flve passengers on board docked at the Battery at 6:su oclock. A num ber of police Inspectors and captains. some clergymen ana some out or town civilians wero on bfard. The Taurus of the Iron Steamboat Company carried 500 passengers. ODDS ON RESOLUTE AT 7 TO 5. netting Prices Shift Swiftly After Fourth Rnce. Odds on the races for tho America's Cup shifted swiftly last night, and In what betting was recorded from the time announcement was made that the Resolute, tho American defender, had again taken the measure of Sir Thomas Lipton's Irish challenger, Shamrock IV.f the Herreshoff sloop was the favorite at 7 to 5. esterday's setback was a sharp Jolt to the followers of the Sham rock, for before the last two races had been sailed they had the pleasure of seeing a challenger favorite for the first tlmo In the history of the cup. RESOLUTE SHAMROCK COURSE SOCIETY YIELDS TO LURE OF YACHTS Owners nnd Quests of Trivnto riensure Craft Throng Club Station. WniPPET MUCH ADMIRED Oliver 0 Jennings's Speedy Vessel Carries Party of Young Men. That Intewt In the fourth Cup race had been revived among the owners of private pleasure craft was shown by Increased activity yesterday morning nt the New York station of the New York Yacht Club, at the foot of East Twenty-third street. The thrilling finish of the third race, which the timid ones had misted, lured yachtsmen out In force to see the crucial test of the series. Activity at the station, however, did not approach that on the first two days ot racing. "It Is like a course" of Instruction In modern yachting to sit here and listen and look, while waiting for your captain to turn up," observed a young woman who was waiting at the station for her host and hostess to appear. She Bpoke knowingly, as the modern yacht has undergone many changes In appearance In the last few years. The growing popularity ot the power yacht Is the cause. In seasons not long gone the yacht's launch was the only craft to come alongside tho landing stage of such a place as a yacht club station, The parent craft, almost Invariably a steam yacht, lay anchored outside. Nowadays tho power yacht, that has a more rapacious appetite for gasolene than a steam yacht ever thought of having for coal, proportionately speak ing, may come right up to the landing stage and permit the passengers to walk on deck. The only exceptions to this new rule of yachting Interest yesterday at the yacht club's station wero the steam yachts Aloha, owned by Commodore Arthur Curtlss James; Alicia, owned by Alfred I. du Pont: Narada, which long has been the property of Henry Walters, and the Emerald, owned" by John N. Willys. Those large coal burninK craft pointed their bows to the tide In the East River In dignified aloofness, while a score of trim motor yachts shot In and out of the basin. Dr. and Mrs. Lewis v. Fressell were iruests 1 1 Com modore nnd Mrs. James on board the Aloha. One of the most Interesting of the power yachts to leave the station for the race was the Whippet, owned by Oliver O. Jennings. No private craft was more appropriately christened, as her speed, approaching twenty-seven knots. Is' almost that of Ixuls Gordon Hamerslcy'a Cigarette, the rpeedlcst thtmr In nrlvate motor craft In these waters. The Whippet was originally one of the 120 submarine chasers that left the Qreenport shipyards for war duty. Mr. Jennings bought her about the time of the armistice and lias had a world of pleasure on board the craft since. Yesterday Mr. Jennings took out a party of young men, who Included his son, 13. Brewster Jennings, Russell S. P.artlett, r.nrrtnn Millet And Benjamin RUger. Major-Gen. George R.. Dyer'a military duties had prevented Mm from witness ing any of the previous races. Yester day he got back from camp In time to Join twenty men guests on board his power yacht Vixen. Harry Payno Whit ney also went out from tho station with twenty men on board his Whlleaway. The Little Sovereign loft the station with Lieut. H. F. Johneon, U. S. N., on the bridge with the captain. As Freder ick W. White's yacht Is one of the pa trol boats, the official appearance of the craft was easily explained. Mr. White was not on hoard, but bis young guests, Including several young women, had one of the best opportunities of any of thoso who went down to the sea In boats. George J. Gould went out on board his power jachl Atlanta, but not for tho race. He was bound up the Hudson. Dr. and Mrs. George Boiling Lee wco guests of Mr. and Mrs. William Th:tw on board their motor yacht Junletta. Mr. and Mrs. George M. Pynchon came from Greenwich, where they are pass ing the summer, on board their power yacht Vasanlta; put In at the station to pick up a few friends of their daugh ter. Miss Beatrice Pynchon, and then went on to the outer bay. Mr. and Mrs. John N. Willys sailed for Europe yes terday on board the France, but their yacht Emerald went out with a party of six of their friends on boaro. FIRST REAL RACE PROMISED TODAY Capt. Applegate Sees Chance for Shamrock. Along the banks of the Shrewsbury all last evening gathered groups of the old timers who have watched Sir Thomas Llpton come over time and again only to rail back with the cheery prophecy that next time he'd turn the trick In his effort to lift the America's Cup. Never was there interest more at high tension than It was last night. With the races two and two, they rehearsed every tack and cery turn of wind of the races already run. Chief among them, eagerly sought after In the hope that he might let fall some bits of wlidom, was Cap n Andrew Jackson Applegate, who Is the expert advisor of winds and tides on the chal lenger. Nearly every one along the river from Naveslnk to Galilee waited hla opportunity to get, a few words with the captaln and the inside track on to day's race. Delayed by the tide In the Shrewsbury and compelled to linger along the way In his sloop, the Chsrlotte, halted every little while by knots of those who want ed a tip on to-day's wind or tide. It was long after dark before the Captain set foot ashore. After the local skippers had argued back and forth about yesterday's race until one-half of 'em weren't, any longer on speaklnj- terms with the other half some one had tho good sense to ask Capt Applegate about the conditions for to-day's race. He knew the question came from his old friend, Peter X. White, friend and critic of his salty wisdom. The captain looked carefully about the horizon, saw that the outlook for a light breeze in the morning was favor able, and hinged his reply on the handi cap. 'There's a good chance for the Sham rock," he said. "Just what the outcome will be rests with the winds alone. We are all aware of the clever way In which the Resolute can work before the wind. The Shamrock with all her sails set can never overtake her on the tre mendous handicap which she Is still obliged to give. We have tried the light nff th linrt. m liav Un l ,.-,,t,t In' Mlmi linil w hv nnt hn able to ihour enough superiority over the Resolute to overlap that handicap.".

A light air from south west was not strong enough to dispel the base and when a heavy fog shut In the siren on the light vessel screeched out Its warning In discordant tones, Then the wind strengthened a little nnd blew away the fog, so that tha com mittee decided to make a start ' and gave the course directions. By some not familiar with cup racing cr'tlclsms were made on the committee for starting so soon, when thero were Indications that the wind would freshen as It did and by waiting half an hour longer have mads the race more Inter esting. The committee has no option In the matter. According to the condltlona agreed on the races are to be started each day ab near as possible to noon, New ' York time, and cannot wait for better winds. Tho committee must order tho start as soon as the wind Is strong enough In its opinion to send the yachts away fairly. It has nothing to do with what may follow later. The co u re o was triangular, ten miles to each leg. The compass courses were south-southwest on the first leg, which was to windward, Tast by north on tho second and northwJst-half west on tho third. The tug went off to lay tho marks, and at 12:45 o'clock the hoisting of tho Blue Peter ball and a sharp toot of the tug's whistle called attention to it. Tho committee's tug was anchored east, southeast from the light veasel, mak ing the lino at right angles to the wind. At that time the two yachts were at the committee boat end of the lino head ing to the eastward, both on the star board tack. A little later Resolute wore lound, while Shamrock tacked and then stood toward the light veasel with the wind about abeam. Interest Aronsed at Start. They moved slqwly in the light air, and the manoeuvring was not Interest ing until Just two minutes before the starting signal was to ba made, and then both yachts were to leeward of the line near the light vwvsel, and both were on the starboard tack with the Resolute leading and nearest to the line. Jib topsails had been sent up In ptops, and Shamrock broke out one of the baby size, while Resolute broke out a No. 2. Resolute had tho better po sition. She handled more easily In the light air and gathered headway mors quickly than the challenftr. The sig nal sounded, and the tow reached down the line. When more than half way between the two marks Resoluto haulcrt her wind and crossed at 1:01:33, and at once began to draw ahead. Shamrock, further astern, hauled on the wind and crossed nt 1 :01 :56, or 23 seconds after the defender, and ahe was thon on the weather quarter of the American yacht and In a poor position. They were head ing south-southeast on this tack, stand ing off shore, and Resolute was spilling the wind out of her sails and back winding the Shamrock. Just six minutes after crossing Sham rock went about and stood In toward the New Jersey shore, while Resolute held on tho oft shore tnck for a minute and a half longer, and that minute and a half was very beneficial to her. Ahead the wind was fresher and In that tlmo It hauled perhaps a point, giving her a big lift, and at the same time heading the Shamrock or knocking her oft her course. Then the wind, backing to Its original quarter, freshened for Resolute, and In that short space ot time she had taken a commanding lead on the Shamrock, The wind was freshening every min ute and the spirits of all on the yachts and excursion steamers freshened with It, for a splendid contest was promised At 1 :15 o'clock Resolute'a No. 2 Jib top sail was changed for a small one and both yachts settled down on a long beat Into the beach, the yacht getting there first gaining an advantage. It was the same story that has now grown old, Shamrock footed very fast but Resolute pointed higher and In that way more than offset Shamrock's speed. At first the crews on the yachts were to leeward, the men on Shamrock being gathered well aft. but as the wind In creased In strength they wero moved one or two at a time to the weather rail. IlrKona Slovr In ChnnRlntr Soils. Just eight minutes after Resolute had changed her topsail Shamrock's men hauled down tho baby Jib topsail and set up tho tiny one that had been used In the last race. They were slow com pared with the Resolute In making the change. By 2 o'clock the yachts were' off Seabrlght. still heading In ehorc. Resolute was sailing perfectly, but Shamrock'a head sails were not nearly so flat as they should have been for a thrash to windward. Stilt she was foot- j ing. Shamrock held on until she waa forced to take the starboard because a fish pound was In her way and she could not weathsr It This was at 2:07 o'clock. Resolute held on the Inshore tack for a minute nnd a half longer and then she too tacked and a few minutes later both yachts sailed by the Shrewsbury Rocks Bell Buoy, Resolute far to wind ward and Shamrock close to the buoy. The wind was still freshening. It was now about nine miles strength, and Resolute. In a pc si tlon to windward, waa cutting Shamrock's wind, so that Mr. Burton drove the yacht full to pull clear and then hauling sharply again held on To See the Racing Yachts . j Resolute & Shamrock IV.

Tha turning mark, which wn about five miles cast ot Long urancn. I was now In eight, And Resolute, bavin 'nailed a splendid course, was able to make It on this tack. Shamrock had to I make a short hitch to fetch. Resolute took In her baby Jib topsail 1 before reaching the mark and sent up a No. I Jib topsail for tho reach, while Shamrock carried her Jib topsail right up to tho mark and then made the change. This was poor Judgment and I lost time and the men were slow again I In making the change and breaking out the sail, so that the was some minutes without the big drawing sail, Resolute bore off by the mark at 2:35:20, and Shamrock at 2:37:27, Res olute had taken .1 hour 33 minutes 47 ' seconds to sail the ten miles to wind ward nnd had beaten the Shamrock 1 minute 44 :ond. This msant that on the two legs of reaching that were to I follow Shamrock had jto gain 8 minutes I 24 seconds to put her on even terhie with the American yacht at tne nnun, and that eho had to sail each mile 25 seconds faster than the defender. Even her most optimistic supporters agreed that such a performanco would be most remarkable. Wind Freshens for nnce. The wind had freshened to about twelve miles an hour. With their rails down to the water's edge the two yachts were speeding toward the next mark. Shamrock changed her No. 1 Jib topsail for the next sire smaller and soon after ward Resoluto made a similar change. Shamrock waa closing up steadily, but not nearly so faat as she had to do in order to win. It was a wonderfully fast reach to the second mark and Resolute still lead- j )ng gybert h,r boom t0 port at 3-28:01 and, lifting her Jib topsail dver the stay settled down for the reach home. Sham rock gybed at 3:27:18, She had sailed the ten miles In 40:51, and on this leg beat the Resolute In actual sailing time by 50 seconds. Her speed had been within a sllght'fractlon of twelve miles an hour. Soon the yachts' club topsails were shrouded In fog which had blown In again and then as the wind freshened to about eighteen miles an hour the fog was dissipated. The racers wero stag gering under their No. 2 Jlh topsails, which were taken In and small ones set. Resolute'a men showed again how smartly they could handle sails. To the north and to the southwest thunder clouds had gathered and to the northwest a long streak of ugly looking clouds gave promise of some excitement beforo tho raco ended. Both yachts were lugging their club topsails and while Mr. Burton was nursing Shamrock Mr. Adams was still driving on with Resolute. Shamrock's club topsail was set on the port side or to weather of the rig ging on tho tack they wero sailing, whllo Resolute's big sail was to leeward of the rigging on tho starboard side. It Is difficult to lower a club topsail to leeward nnd to ha done so, even If It had been contemplated. It would have been necessary to luff Resolute Into the wind. Challenger's Illft Sail Dnvrn. Two men were nt aloft on Sham rock and soon the big sail was sliding aown, and as it came down that yacht first bore off to .catch what wind there might be In the squall to the north west and then finding that It amounted to little she luffed and headed to meet tho other squall. "While she was doing tins Resolute's Jib topsail was taken In. Had the squall acted as viciously aa It looked Shamrock was now snug and wen able to battle with it while Reso lute waa In bad share. Shamrock car- rled a better wind and reached past Resolute Into tho lead. In a hard shower of rain the squall passed over. leaving first Resolute becalmed while Shamrock carried a good breeze, and then with a few light puffs from the northwest which gave more windward work, it passed over. The original south southwest wind had won the battle of the elements and soon waa sending the yachts on toward the finish, with Shamrock in poor shape to continue tho race." Both yachts had sent up small Jib top sails for the windward work. Shamrock took hers in and was followed at Onco by Resolute, and the American crew again handled the sails more smartly man mcir Hrltlsn rivals, and had . a balloon Jib topsail up and drawln? be fere tho Shamrock's No. 1 Jlh topsail had ben rrastheadfd. With this big sail drawing well Resolute sailed Into the lead again. Shan.rcck sent up a working topsail, a smail. Ill fitting piece of canvas, and soon afterward, gjblng her boom to port, set a spinnaker to starboard. It was too lite to be of any benefit. Resoluto gybed and reached to the line, crossing ot 4 :39:25. Shamrock finished nt 4 :43 :06. U had taken the Resolute 1 hour 13 minutes and 24 seconds to sail the last leg ot the course through the souall. and she had beaten the Shamrock 2 min utes 24 seconds on that point of sailing, Resolute had beaten" Shamrock 3 mln utea 18 seconds actual time, or 9 minutes 5S seconds corrected time.
