Hew Yacht Again Defeats the
Old Champion.
At Only Oiio Fart of the Race Did
Vigilant Seem to Have u Cliuiice.
In a Light Breeze She Crept Ahead
Put Only Held the Advantage
r Moment.
(By Associated Tress.)
New York, July 22. The secondlrial tliat
the DefeudorhadinNew York Avatorsngain&t
the Vigilant to-day only furnished more
evidence that the new bout is better tliaii
the old Ju light weather.
They sailed over n triangular course
outside of Sandy Hook and were tested in
pretty nearly vvcry kind of sailing. They
Marted out before the wind; before they
had got naif way on the journey of tlie first
leg of ten utiles, they were sailing with the
wind over the quarter; before they got to
the end of that first leg they were even
mjre closely hauled; on the second leg of
the three, they were reaching free and
tacking, and on the final angle were able
t.i head to tfje home mark with a fairly
well lifted sheet.
The result left no doubt as to the re
spective qualities of the boats in the kind
of weather that prevailed, but that weather
Wo - of the lightest character. At no time
dul the breeze blow harder than twelve
knots an hour, and it fell at times to four.
On the run out before the wind at the Mart
the Vigilant not only held her own for a
period, but, at the end of four miles, was
was -weei abeam of the Defender.
Tins run was made with spinnakers set
and drawing, under which conditions it is
almost Hniversally conceded that the Vigi
lant is the fastest boat in the world. She
showed these same qualities here as well
at. u the other aide of the Atlantic When
It came to the point, however, where, be
cause of a little shift in the wind, spin
nakers had to be hauled in and booms hauled
in-board, the Defneder Instantly shot ahead.
She kept ahead and wa6 never afterward
oerhnulod during the entire thirty miles
unless it might have been on certain little
portions of the course where the wind
dropped to almost nothing. Iti thoEc
spaces it seemed as though the Vigilant
picked up, but tin? gam was inconsiderable.
The run between the marks show6 that the
Defender gained in each of the three angles.
The Defender left her anchorage at Bay
Bidee in tow of the tender, E. S Atwood,
and alMMit the tame time the Vigilant came
out from the Horseshoe of Sandy Hook.
Then botti boats went on to the eastward
and watted for the Sylvia, the New York
Yacht Club's flagship, with the regatta
committee aboard.
She did not appear until nearly 11
oviook, the tirtic at which the boatt. were
to haw had their preparatorv signal, and
It wa. 11.15 before the committee had
sent np their signals telling the yachts
what the course would be. The flags in
formed the contestants that they must
sail ten miles from an irraginarv line
drawn between the Sylvia and the Scot
land lightship, toward southeast half
east, then ten miles west -south east in
toward tlie Jersey coast, and at last ten
miles north by half east.
Tlie wind at" the lime was almost from
the west. The Idea of the committee was
to send them away with the breeze over
the quarter. JJut directly after the start
there was a shift in the six-mile air, and
the racers found themselves running dead
before tlie wind. Down went the Vigi
lant 's spinnaker lwom at the first sign of
a dead astern wind, and it was not a min
ute later that Defender followed suit.
Tlie yachts went over the line with jib
topsails flying and continued up to the
time the spinnakers were set. After tlie
fpiinakers were hauled in the Defender
pgan to gi ahead The moment the Vigi
lant became a point nearer tlie wind, she
lgan to fall orf. Within Uie space of a
m.le f wy the time that the spinnakers
were haufcodown the Defender was a good
silt'euth ft? a mile ahead.
At 12.30 tlie Defender rau up a jib in
stops and the action or the crew in this
performance was very slow. Directly after
wards the "Vigilant ran up her Jib. At
12 55 tne Defender hauled down her balloon
jib topsail and the Vigilant, which was a
good quarter of a mile behind, hauled hers
down almost at the same time.
These movements were preliminary to
the rounding of the first mark. Despite
the fact that the Defender had ftxne little
furtlier distance to go, the p-rceptibly
gained on the Vigilant and rounded at
12 57:01 .making a very pretty turn within
twenty feet of the buoy, and bore away on
Vie starboard lack, with sails quite full,
. true racing style.
She was very quick coming up Into the
Jnnd, and, as tho mat nsheet was hauled aft,
Bhe hold her head up and went very quickly
through tho Av&ter, close hauled, making
urn course, west soutnwest, in a wind that
had died down to about six miles an hour
Tlie Vigilant did not go so close to the
buoy, lit she went around itjjust as fast
They stood off on the port tack until 1:;50,
wlien tlie Defender "went around. The
Vigilant was right after licr, hat on that
last tack to the northwest tlie air had
dropped to almost nothing. During it
the Defender pointed higher and gained
on tlie Vigilant, so tliat nearly half a mile
separated them on their approach to the
second mark.
At 2 p. in. the breeze got a little
stronger for the Defender, but the Vigilant
did not feel it so much the same time and
dropped astern till she was three-quarter,
of a mile to the bad. Then the breeze
brightened up again a little and in the
next mile or so the Defender gained as usual
in an increasing wind.
At 2:20 Hie Defender found she could
not weather the second mark, so &he went
about to port, and as there was a bit of
a breeze at the moment she showed how
bhe could spin aiound from one tack to
the "other. The Defender stood on tills
tack for three mluutes, when she came
around to starboard, while the Vigilant
held on to her old starboard tack.
At 2:44 Defender tacked to port, Vigi
lant Still holding on. At 2:44 theVlgilant
went around to port, always showing her
self to be from 7 to 10 seconds slower
in tacking. The Defender came along In
line style and passed the last buoy at
2:50:11 . The Vigilant did not get around
until 2:57:50.

Statement That She Had Taken a
Gold Ring Belonging to Him.
Mrs. Belle Farrall, acquitted a week
ago at La Plata, Md., of poisoning her
husband, Frederick Farrall, a papular
hotel-keeper at Hughesville, Md., was ar
rested here last night on a charge or petit
larceny. The warrant was sworn out by
Eugene P. Hall, whose alleged Intimacy
with her was given as the reason for
getting rid of her husband.
She deposited 320 as guarantee for her
appearance berore Judge Miller this morn
ing, and returned to her home. This ar
rest, while very annoying to Mrs. Farrall
and her relatives. here, is used by heraa an
opportunity to correct an impression wblcb.
bas gone out that she admitted m the trial
at La Plata a guilty relationship with
Hall. It was In consideration of this
that Mra. Farrall was ready to have her
statement published as given below.
The trial of Mrs .Farrall began at La
Plata in a special session of the Cbarles
county circuit court on July 3, and cee
tinued thirteen days, ending in an ac
quittal, principally on the ground that Mr.
Farrall was not poisoned.
The story, as set out by the State, was
that Mr3. Farrall, who formerly fived
here, at No. 1104 O street southeast,
was'ln love with Eugene P. Hall, a rail
road brakeman. That he came to board
at the Farrall house, Hughesville. in the
latter part of last September, and there
a criminal intimacy was entered upon.
In November, it was alleged, sfce aad
Hall came to this city and registered at
the American House as J. B. Dale and
wife. Oo November 16 Mr. Farrall was
taken suddenly ill, and in eleven hours after
having a number of convulsions terrible to
see, he died. Mrs. Farrall a f ter ward eame
to this city, and largely in response to
efforts by her brother-in-law, Alfred Far
rail, she vas indicted.
She sent word that she woW appear
when wanted for trial. In spite of this
a rwqufcuuou was procured and seat her.out
the papers were never served. True to
her word, however, Mrs. Farrall appeared
when called. The defense was cuMiveted
by E. P. Wiimer and ex-Congressman
Mudd, the prosecution by State's Attorney
The main effort of the defeuse was to
sh w that Mr Farrall was not poned,
and tt was stated in one publication that no
serious effort was being made to disprove
Mrs. Farrall's relations with Hall. The
defense did show, however, that she wa3
not at the American House wita him awl the
statements not directly refuted showed only
indiscretions and nothing criminal. Hall
testified for the prosecution, but told
nothing to show anything improper between
Tlie warrant upon which Mr. Farrall
was arrested was goc from Magistrate
John H. O'Donnell late yesterday, and
was served by Policeman Andrews, of the
Fifth precinct, at 7 p. m. It charged the
theft of a gold rfng Valued at $10. The
ring was supposed by some to be the same
mentioned at one point in the trial. Mrs.
Farrall came to the station without ado
ami gave bond. Hall was there when she
appeared, and said to an official?
"Must she be looked up?"
"Yes, certainly," was the answer.
"My heart fails me since I have seen
her. Suppose I don't appear to prose
cute?" "Then we'll get a warrant out for vm."
To a Times reporter, who saw her at her
home when in the city, on New Jersy aye
nue, Mrs. Farrall said:
"I "came here yesterday to get some
clothing for my children. I have been Irv
ing at Waldorf, Md., since the trial, wait
ing for the settlement of ray husband's es
tate. I hoped my troubles m court wero
"But I hadn't been here two hours when
this man, this thing without a spark of
manhood, appeared next door and asked for
me. I don'tknowwherehelivesandhaven't
seen him since he testified. He said I
had agreed to meet him at that honse and
had them send over here for me.
"I refused peremptorily to meet him.
He then sent me a letter and I returned it
unopened. He then had the impudence to
come here himself and ring the door beH.
"I sent word from upstairs by thesrvanf
that I could not seehim upon any conditions.
He went away muttering something.
"Toward evening he returned with two
policemen. They asked for me ami I went
to the door. The policeman banded me the
warrant and I read It.
" 'Does that fellow charge me with
stealing his ring? Let me see him, I said.
He came In.
No,' he said, 'but I put tne ring la a
book and it disappeared.'
" ' A nd you say I took i t?
" ' res.- "
"ThJn you must know what I safcl to
him. There Isn't a word of truth fa hla
story. The ring was given as boot in a
watch trade. Ho gave a gold watch and
the ring for a much finer watch.
"When the story was published agatosfe
me connecting my name with his I was
the boat on my way to New York, and 16
made me hate him so that I threw the ring
In tho river. Since the trial he wrote rao
for the watch and ring, but he dkln't send
me the other watch.
"I returned his, glad to get rkl of it, aad
S"nt him word where the ring is. It was
not my watch that was traded to him and I
didn't make the trade. The watch and ring
got from him were given me by one whose
namo I would like to protect."
Mrs. Farrall is much younger looking
than her picture as pubhsheU makes (her
appear , and has a finer and more intellectual
face. The lines are more delicate and tho
features more clearly cut. She talks as
artlessly as a country girl, and appears a
The new turn In the troubles that have
beset her has caused great distress to her
relatives and her sister was aysterical ac
the thought of further publicity.
When the case comes up in court this
morning it is understood she will afk for
a continuance till she can communicate
with her counsel at La Plata, Col. Wiimer
and ex -Congressman Mudd. She relie3
upon them to free her from this new com
plication, but could not reach them by wiro
last night.
