About this time Lord Dunravon determined to try again for tho America's cup. and this timo the effort was to bo 'yacht race spoiled By the Failure of the Winda to FurniBh Power. EOTH HllVE TO BE TOWED IN BY TUGS To tli" Disappoint incut and Disgust of tlio Thousand* of People who had Gathered to Witness tho Great Iinternational Contest's Opening Event?1Tho Ilulcs of tho Knee?History of Events Leading up to it. New York, Oct. 5.?Baffled by light winde, tho yachts Vigilant and Val\ kyrie, which startod to-day on tho iirst of tho international races for tho America's cup, were cornpellod to abandon the contest. It was just 5:10 o'clock in tho aftornoon when a tug took tho Valkyrie in tow, and tho dismal tooting of whistles ! announced tho failure of the day's | eport. i Tho English cutter was then a mile in / advance of tho Vigilant, and tho point for which they had started almost six hours bcforo was yet miles away. It was a keen disappointment to ttic thousands who had Htood by tho rails and clung to tho vantage ground on board iho steamers all day. The overpowering attraction of the big race between tho English and American prizo winners drew tho biggest flotilla that ever sailed to bandy Hook to see a yacht raco, and every boat was crowded, too. The little wind that promised something in tho morning almost died away in tho afternoon, and just beforo sunbet, when tho hugo ball glowed behind . a bank of mist, there was scarcely a i ripple on tho water and not more than a breath of air stirring Even th s tail of a cyclone, which a few of th j woather bureaus at loa.u hud promised, would havo been preforablo to tho tantalizin/ cat's-paw* that i morel/ touched tho flapping sails of tho yachts. * i Tho faet that it wa3 necessary to tow j in both boats, and that there wore still several miles of the course to traverse, made tho crowds moro uncertain at nightfall to-day than they had been tho pruvjuua uuy. ?jvcu mo |jius|iai;t *ji au i additional raco failed to turn tho disappointment into joy. A lon<: stream of craft, from iron stoamers to row boats, swept past the | battery and down through tho narrowi I almost from daybroak. Private yachts i gavo way to tho bigger boats just as though yacht owners wero not mil- i lionaires, and then the latter took a short cut right under their very paddle wheels and up clone to whore the police had placed a guard boat. < TIIF. START. According to tho sailing directions, the start was to be made off Sandy Ilook lightship, tho preparatory signal being given at 11:15 a. m., and the starting signal ton minutes later. Tho yachts were to got oil aB quickly as they could, that being tho starting time of both, no allowance beins made to either boat for failing to get across the imaginary line quick enough. lhe course determined upon for the tlrst race waa fifteen miles to windward, or Irtovvnrd. and rnturn. both viiL'hta tamine ? mnrk anchored at tho lifiueuutile point, and starting and finishing across an imaginary lino drawn between Commodore Morgan's flagship, tho May, 1 and tho Sandy Ilook lightship. Tho J marks were floats displaying a red flag , with a white stripo; tho position of the float was indicated by a tug showing a red bull, and stationed about 100 yards beyond it. Tho race was eagerly watched by large crowds all along tho route, tho J yachts alternately leading, though tho Vigilant seemed to have the best o? it most of the way. the rules. i The racing rules, time allowance and ; system of measurement ot tho New York Yacht Club shall govern, with the nroviso that any excess of load-waterline over eighty-five feet shall bo , counted double in calculating tho sail* ing length, and also that tho load-water* lino lengtli shall not exceed 80.7 feet. Best three out of fivo races, outside of , headlands, over courses each thirty nautical miles in length and with a time limit of six hours. The first, third and fifth raco9 shall bo to tho windward or to tho leeward and return. The second nnd fourth racos shall bo around an equilateral trianglo, one leg (and the first if tho wind per* mit) being to windward. One day shall intervene between each racing day. A race postponed or not finishod within tfie time limit shall bo decided before the next race in the scries is taken up. history of the negotiations. In 1889, negotiants were opnnod by 1/ord Dun raven, for tho Royal Yacht Squadron of England, with tho Now York Yacht Club to bring about an international meet. Tho old > alkyrio, now tho property of Jgnazio Florio, of l'nlonno, was to represent tho British* ere. nut owing to disagreements in regard to tho deed of gift, tho.committoo of the Koval Yacht .Squadron rcfusod to sanction the challenge. It was a ripple that soon vanished, but it provod to tho New York Yacht Club that tho desire on the part of tho Englishmen to retain the old prize cup was as strong as ever. Interest did not wano in America, and i many fast boats were bailt until, in the year 1891, tho Gloriana flashed across the yachting horizon of tho world. Her canoe bow and other marked departures irora tho old beaton paths of form startled the naval architects on both fides of the Atlantic. She was designed and built by the Ilerreshofie. Her success was phonomonal, and in time her model was extensively copied. Not i only did American designers adopt her chief characteristics, but abroad thoy < alio caught the oi.oriana fever, and to-dav tho representative racing : yachts of Great Britain and this conntry bear tho finjjor prints of tho original 40-footorthntcarried everything before her, and at the end of her inaidon year was the champion of hor class and made in a most determined and persistent manner. Through the efforts of Mr. Richard Grant, secretary of the Royal Yacht Squadron, and with the advice of the prince of Wales, the squadron's commodoro, a line of attack was iu timo agreed upon by Lord Dunraven, and it was carried out with much pertinacity. It was claimed that the New York Yacht Club had no right to demand of the challenger all the dimensions of the boat that he would send across the ocean to battle for the cup. and, after much delay, and repeated lotters and cablegrams, of an explanatory nature, it was intimated that the New York Yacht Club would accept a challenge from their old friend by hi* sunpiy giving uiu iuaa*?aiur-Jinu luugiu of his yacht. That was what had lone been sough t find on November 25, 1?92, the Royal vacht squadron pent its challenge, naming Lord Dunraven's cutter rigged yacht Valkyrie with an estimated load-waterlino length of 83 foot. Tho challenge was accepted in duo season and tho clubs began arrangements forthwith Lo bring about tho race. AMKUICANS HEADY. Tlio chaUengo of Lord Dunravon aroused the enthusiasm and patriotism of all American yachtsmen, with a view of defending thecup in tho old fashioned loyal way. The club acted promptly, at onco appointing the old committee, whoso chairman was General l'ayne, and tho members Ex-Cornmodoro James D. Smith, Ex-Vice Commodore Latham A. Fish, secretary. They wont to work actively, and while they wore arranging tho preliminaries the question of now boats to properly meet the visitor was being discussed. Finally. Mr. Archibald Rogers went to tho Herresholla and ordered the fastest boat they could turn out. There wero no restrictions. A koel boat was determined upon, and she is the Colonia of to-day. Weeks went on. the koel boat was proRerssing as well as could bo expected, and news from England as to wiial the new Valkyrie undor Watson'i hands would do, bo^an to make American yachtsmen and TUB AMEIUCAN PUBLIC NEKV0U3. So it was u croat relief when it was announced that a syndicate, prominent nraong whose mombers wore Mr. E. D. Morgan, Mr. C. Oliver Iselin, and Mr. August Belmont had ordered the second cup candidate from the Ilerreschoffs. This boat wa9 to be of bronzo bull and a centre-board. The latter was gratify ing to the veterans who believed that thoold American type of craft was tho best that the world could pruduce. Tho America'* cup committee rejoiced and the public began to breathe onsior. The broozo boat was commenced, and, in time, finished. She is tho Vigilant, with Capt. William Hansen in charge. Boston grew uneasy. In former cup races, she had the praise and tho glory. Her veterans once more tnlked of cup rnnna iinri nt. hut, t.lin Mnaton llOVfl thor DUghly got tho cup fovor, Gen. Paino headed tho list. Ho had thought that the victories of tho past would suflico for him, and bo fur an ho was concerned would not bothor with tho match of this vear. Ho did not know hiinsol.' whon ho insula that decision, as a littlo later it wont to the world that Gon Paino and his son, John B., would build a cup defender. They did it and it now stands. tub jubilee. Tho othor Bostonians desired to bo aliko enthusiastic and tho rumors that a second boat would bo turned out were fulfilled. It was built, and is tho finkeel Pilgrim. . With these cud defondsrs building the complexion of the American cup committei naturally changed. General Paino retired to look after his yobbo! and Commodore Smith was mado tho chairman. Mr. Rogers also resignod and tho vacancies woro tilled by Mr. Philip fc'chuylor and Mr. Frederick Tarns. After repeated contests between tho four American boats, with which the public is familiar, the Vigilant was chosen to represent America in tho groat international raco. On board tho steamship Republic, over which Mr. Charles Chamberlain had special supervision, many newspaper men viewed tho raco. From her deck tho Associated Press roporters dispatched carrier pigeons with tho earliost news of the start, finish and progress of tho contost. A number of tho speediest birds in the country were furnished by Mr. Alfred De Cordova, tho well known owner of Chetolali farm, North Branch, N. J. When tho yachts got under way they had a wind after them, and before they reached the outer mark tho wind had shifted to tho vory opposite point of tho compass, and^they came home, or rathor started to corao homo with tho propelling power as clearly over the stern as at the vory beginning. There were occasions when some windward work had to bo dono and, during the latter part of tho race, tho wind wad fairly abeam, but tho air was so light at nil times that it is not competent testimony as to tho ability of either boat. There will bo no race to-morrow, but another attempt will be mado Saturday. NEWS IN BRIEF.

St. Louis, Oct. 5.?At this afternoon's session of tho bi-metallic convention, a rosolution was offered, providing, in tho event of tho failure of Congress to provide adequately for the uso of silver as money, for tho calling of a national convention in January, 1894, under tho auspices of tho governors of Missouri, South Carolina, Kansas and Colorado, including delegates from every state and territory, labor and agricultural organization to take action looking to a thorough agitation of the question before another election. Governor Tillman, of South Carolina, then took tho floor to close tho debate upon tho resolutions report, llo declared the financial question presented but another form of slavory, white slavery. As to sectionalism, evqry section would voto as its interests demanded. As to this, he was not uneasy, but ho was us 10 mio uuiiomuu io puny iuiimu^ bo many men forgot that others have right*. Touching again upon sectionalism and reconstruction, ho declared himself a Hamburg rioter and asked what made him so. It was negro domination. The end justified the means, lie had no apologies to mako for attempts to sccure honost government by honest men uflawed by the bayonets of Grant's soldiers. Coming ouco more to the prosem, ho took up statistics to show that the west and Bouth could control tub presidency and sonato and within nine of a majority of the house, and these men could be nicked up oast of the Mississippi. Would the west moot tho south? Governor Lewelling answered: "What would tho governor of South Carolina ask? Had not Kansas sent ox-Confeiie rates to Congress? Was not this an olive branch of peaco? Was it not a sufficient pledge that the old issues wore dead; that tho bloody chasm was crossed and that tho West was prepared to do hsr part?" As Gov. Lowelling closed Gov. Tillman rose and the two governors grasped hands on a common platform amid cheors y.iich subsided only when the convention exhausted itself. With the cossation of the cheers, the question was put on the majority report of the committoo on resolutions and it wns adopted unanimously. The resolution providing for tho call of a national convention in January was withdrawn, and after the transaction of 1 some minor business, including the pasnairo of tho usual rosolutions of thanks, the convention adjournod sine die, having first provided for the calling of another convention, if deemed necessary by the prosidont and Becrotary of tho Pan-American Bi-metallic league. 1 THIS POSSIBLE ACTION Of Conjjrcss Still I>otulnntca tho Iron Trade Situation. Cleveland, Oct. 5.?The Iron Trade Review this week says; "Tho situation in the iron market to-day is summed up in the statement that while there is very little, if any, more business going on than at tho same time last week, i there are more producers in operation anxious to get what there is. This is particularly tho caso with all finished material. The mills that resumed did so on uio sirengtu 01 a nanuiui 01 orders, in most eases, unci tho desire to increaso tonnage so as to decrease cost leads to unheard-of quotations on nil contracts of any size that come up. Specifications are being furnished more freely on old contracts, and this mitigatea in some slight dogree the keen nesa of tho struggle. "The rarity of round orders is a featuro that indicates an unsatisfactory and unsteady scale of operations for some time to come. The situation is still dominated by the possibilities of congressional notion. It is plain that the old pace will not come again until thoro is some assurance as to tho prico basis. When tho new tariff act receives the President's signature it will bo possible I to tlgure. ^ Dr. Mnry Make* Graves Charge*. Syracuse, N.

It is lag- a ging instead of increasing. To-day the only speeches that attracted nnv atten- p tion were those of the colored man, Mr. j, Murray, of .South Carolina, and Mr. d Monoy, of Mississippi. Mr. Murray was il accorded unusual attention, largely per- tj haps out of curiosity on account of his ii color. t! Tlio public gallery was packed to tho ^ doors with negroes who applauded his ^ utterances. Secretary Morton was, by tho bill passed to-day, placed in tho lino of L presidential Huccession. Tho position of secretary of agriculture had not been created when tho succession bill was passed in 18S7. la Thobill passed turning over the prop- b ertyof tho Mormon church, now in tho fl| hands of n receiver, to charitable purposes, marks tho nflicial winding up of the affairs of the Mormon church under tc the Edmunds-Tucker act. hi Mr. Gates called up tho bill disquali- ct fving United States judges from sitting tl in cases in which they have ever been w interested as counsel or ties of consan- C( guinity, and it was passed. Consideration of tho Tucker olection ^ bill was resumed, Mr. Murray taking Bj tho floor for tho completion of the n| speech ho began yesterday. 1 i,i Tho colored man declared that no j, "gambler or conjuror" over devised more plans to defraud his victims than v< wore conducted by tho Southern Doino- n, cratic politicians to rob the men of his raco of their votes. HC lie applied such epithets as "murderers,*' "thieves," and "ballot box rapors" to tho southern Democratic tc politicians, and appealed oloquontly to northorn Democrats, western Populists and patriotic Republicans everywhere to resist tho passage of this nefarious l> bflL "But, even if this bill is passed, I cannot believo but that the pood and philanthropic man in the white house is too humane to Htrike down tiro iegal " walls that protect tl e black man." m During the progress of Mr. Murray's spcoch memborn crowded about him m and gave him close attention. in Mr. Russoll, of Georgia, followed in w advocacy of tho measure. Speaking of lc tho decay of tho Republican party and tho speech of Mr Murray, ho said it was lilting that tho requiem gun of a once great party should bo fired by a Xi son of Ham. " . Mr. Monoy, of Mississippi, was tho next speaker. Ho devotod himself to a w defenso of his state, which had boon as- 111 sailed by overv Republican who had ?\ spoken. lie said that tho Republicans, misunderstood tho situation in tho* P| south because they knew no more about *' the African than they know about tho *1 Kaffirs of South Africa. In speaking about tho passage of tho "black law" of 1807 in Ohio, Mr. Money jt asserted that the legislature at that time was Republican. This aroused General Grosvenor, who explained thut . on tho contrary the legislature was in Democratic in both branches. Thai ol legislature electod Allan G. Thurnian to g, tothoeonate. ? Mr. Money ?

Y., Oct. 5.?Tho three hundred and eighty-four delegates who eat ia the Democratic stato convention hero to-day enjoyed a bright, sunny morning, without distracting doubts or distressing controversies as to who should havo places on the ticket. That was all settled, so far as a futuro event may ho said to bo sottlod. Cord Meyer, of Brooklyn, will be the candidato fur secretary of statu and this by a strange equation of politics, carries with it the nomination of Hugh Duffy, of Cortlandt, for state treasurer. llad Gnome 13. McClellan hoadod the tickot William U. Firk, of Syracuse, would have boon the candidate for Btate treasurer.

TIIB ORGANIZATION. , Tho convention was called to order at noon and Mr.- Lockwood was named aa chairman, lie was heartily received, and was greeted with significant and loud applause when ho declared that the present convention ropresentod the entire Democratic party of the state.

Tho committees on resolutions, permanent organization, credentials and to choose delegates at large to tho constitutional convontion wero mado up by congressional districts, upon motion of Mayor Gilroy. The convention thon adjourned until 10 o'clock to-morrow. OBJECT OP ADJOURNMENT. It is understood that tho chief object of tho Democrats in holding tho state convention over until to-morrow is to learn as much as they can about the intentions of tho Republicans, who are to meet to-morrow in Syracuse. Saturday is tho hut day stato nominations can be made under the new election laws. Further proceedings in this convention must be of tho most formal character, us every stop is arranged by tho autiCleveland machine. Tho committee on contested seats tonight practically wiped out the antimachine delegations. In the make-up jf tho delegations of congressional districts who name tho thirty-four state sommittoemen, only ONE ANTI-HILL MEMBER of tho committoo secures a place, that ono being from Albany, tuo Stato Capital district. A sub-committoo of the committee on platform to-night completed a draft of that document, of which no particulars tiro to bu given out hero until it is suD* mittod to the full committee. It is said on the authority of a member of the sub-committee that a resolution is included declaring for the absolute and unconditional repeal of the Sherman law.
