The Two Types of Clipper Craft Glide
Gaily Over the Waves.
Nkw Yokk, Sept. 7. This lias been the
greatest yachting day that New York has
ever seen, and another day of glory for
Boston, for her latest and prettiest product
of naval architecture, the sloop yacht May
flower, has won the first race of the inter
national series, against a powerful antag
onist, the British cutter Galatea. "With a
steady breeze from the southward, permit
ting each to carry all their sails, the Gala
tea was beaten 12 minutes and 40 seconds,
actual time, or 12 minutes and 2 seconds
corrected time, the Mayflower having giv
ing her 3S seconds time allowance, accord
ing to the New York Yacht club rules, un
der which the races are sailed.
The contest w as eminently fair for both
yachts inasmuch as half the course sailed
gave almost windward work, while the
other half was with free .sheets. Although
the Ctitter was defeated she has shown her
self to be a faster yacht than the Gencsta in
a light bree7c, and one that may be very
hard to defeat in a strong breee and t,ea
It has been a day of excitement, such as j
is seldom seen in New York. From dawn
till dark, afloat or ashore, in hotel, club or
'change, "the yacht race" was the leading
topic of conversation.
By 10 o'clock in the morning the thou
sands who were going to witness the
race had embarked and steaming
down the bay to the rendezvous oil
Bay ridge, L. I., where lay the two types
of clipper craft, icady for the grand marine
Sandy Hook, X Y., Sept. 7, 8 a. m
The indications of the rising sun w:is a dull
glare in the eastern sky. There was not
the smallest patch of blue sky; heavy, black
looking clouds Avcre scurrying toward the
southwest propelled by an eight knot
breee. An hour later the aspect was not
more promising. A nasty drizzle set in
which made things very unpleasant at
mosphere heavy and muggy. The sea only
within a radius of two miles was visible.
About 7 o'clock the rain held up. Xo
storm or even cautionary signals were dis
played from the signal service station.
Steam fog horns were in operation all night,
and until about 7:30; than the sun's rays
burbt through an opening in the cloud
banks and two distinct lights of almost
blinding whiteness were thrown upon the
ocean'sbosom. This w:is the lirst signal of
clearing up. The air became clearer, and
in a few minutes Coney island and light
shins were plainly visible.
New Yoiik, Sept. 7, 10 a. m. The
yachts are now getting in position for the
start. "Weather hazyln the bay and seems
tb be getting thick outside; wind east
southeast about eight mile..
Saxdy Hook, Sept. 7. S:50. The wind
has fallen oil" to about live knots; fog has
begun to roll in from the sea. The racers
wiil have to buck tide both in and out.
Sandy lloox, Sept. 7, 9:."S0. The wind
has inci eased to about eight knots, blow
ing from the eastward. The sailing crafts
are in the horse shoe ahd about the hook
makins good hcadw ay. The racers w ill be
able tolay the courses straight out of the
Narrows and down to southeast spit.
"Weather somewhat hazy; clouds indicate
wind moving up from the horizon.
At 1:12 tlie Galatea lowered jib top sail,
and at 1:12 the Mayflower tacked and clos
ed under quarantine, the cutter following
suit a minute later. The breeze was fresh
ened every moment and tlie prospects for a
tine race were encouraged.
The large fleet of accompanying steam
ers made trouble for the yachts at times,
nrwl tlinv lmd in bn chased awav bv the
judges' boat.
"When the Mavflower tacked to port at
1:21 she had Fort Lafayette under her
nimrtpr while the (
while the Galatea was yet under
Fort Wadworth. The Boston sloop
crossed her bow fully a quarter mile to
windward three minutes later, and steadily
increased her lead.
At 11:19 when the Galatea tacked to
port near buoy 10, the sloop was leading
her bv three-quarters of a ruiie. The flood
tide had just begun to make and captain
Joe Elliott, who piloted the Mayflower,
was working it for all he was worth. Capt.
Sam Gib-on, pilot of the Galatea, was al-o
doing hi best in that direction, but tlie
cutter was not equal to the""bccasioa. He
rinnlh- snlit tacks" with the sloop and
! going about 11:20 held the port tack while
the Mayflower made too and gamed or tiie
operation fully one-half a mile. Both then
made short leads for the baoy.
New Youk, SepL 7. The start for the
first competitive race for the American cup
between the English cutter Galatea, and
the Boston sloop Mayflower, was made at
10:34. 30 o'clock, and was witnessed by at
least 30,000 pepple. Both yatchts went
over the line at the same time, and for
more that half an hour they hugged the
starting point, eaeli maneuvering for any
advantage a shift in the wind or the last
ebb of tide might give them. Chance fa
vored the Gala:ea,"for just as the whistle of
the Luther G. "Ward screeched-out the sig
nal for the start, a brisk wind set in from
the southeast and gave the English cutter
the advantage of position. Clouds that had
bagged the wind during the early morning
seemed to break just in time, and the white
winged flyers took their course in fine
Never was theie a prettier start and never
were two yachts pitted against each other
in better, or more perfect working order.
Nor were there ever before two yachts so
unlike in build that resembled one another
more closely. Over the line the Galatia
caught the wind and drew ahead with a
bound. Her lead, however, was not long
lived. The jib top sail of the Mayflower
was set and it filled sufficiently to bring her
nose, and nose with the cutter, although
she was perfectly blanketed by hei. Then
the race began in earnest. Both boats
were hauled as close as they would stand,
the Mayflower being eased off a little to
wjinls the Lone Island shore, thus getting
the lead of the Galatea. The English boat
whs tlien nut about and stood oil toward
Staten Island. The Mayflower was put
about almost as quickly and headed in the
same direction.
"Wind has freshened considerably by this
time and the competing yachts promised
much for their respective owners. As they
went down the Narrows the Mayflower
teemed to have a fair lead.
The yachts have started: the Mayflower
is slightly in the lead; wind light.
11:13 a. m The Mayflower is now on
port tack, having a slight lead passing the
quarantine station.
11:30 a. m. The Mayflower is now pass
ing Fort "Wadsworth over a quarter-mile
11:48 a. m. The Mayflower is about
three lengths ahead; the Galatea is near
Hoffman Island.
12 m. The Mayflower, on port tack,
crossed the Galatea's bow and is about five
lengths in the lead to windward, They
are splitting tacks off Hoffman's island:
wind six miles, southeast; weather fair.
The Mavflower passed West bank at
11:47, bound out; the Galatea at 11:15.
Tlie Mavflower leads by about half a mile.
SaxdyHook, N. J., 12:10 i jr. At
noon the wind had shifted more to south
ward and came in puffs. During the
stretches down the channel it was close
work and at one time the cutter Bradfoid,
being on port tack, had to fall off to allow
the Mavflower to cross his bow as the latter
had the right of way. "Working schooners
and fishing smacks troubled the yachts
very much near Hoffman's Island. The
lower hospital stands was apparently not
aware that they were interfering with the
champions. At the time the yachts reach
ed the lower hospital stand, the Mayflower
was still in the lead. At 1:43 all the way
from Sandy Hook narrows was dotted with
yachts. Steamers carrying members of the
New York, Atlantic and Penwanhaka
clubs are among the fleet. The United
States steamer ran aground at 1 :30 at the
Hook but came oil with a few
turns of her screw and started down after
the big ones. All steamers are keeping
to the leaward of the yachts, but swells
from the paddles are retarding the racers
progress The beach at the Hook is crowd
ed w ith .spectator and and ramparts of the
oldfoit are black with people. At 2:13
wind was from the southward, at 14 miles,
and the vachts were about three miles from
Sandy Hook light ship. The American
boat was being well handled and had in
creased her lead to -a mile, and had forged
on a quarter of a mile to windward.
Steamers are darting toward the finishing
point. The run hiVie v'U be interesting,
with sheets of fire. ".
3:10 p. m. The wind is 16 miles an
hour trom" the south-southeast; weather
clear. At 3:07-25 the Galatea was passing
Scotland light going in; she is a little over
two miles behind the Mayflower.
3:10 p. in. The Mayflower has passed
buoy 10 and is going up ship channel. She
is getting her spinnaker ready. The Gal.i
teu passed buoy 5 at 2:29.40.
3:42 p. m. It is the Mayflower's race;
the Galatea is hopelessly astein.
The Mayflower is passing the hoipital
ship Illinois at 3:44. She is well ahead of
the Galatea and is sure to win.
The Mayflower crossed the line winner at
4:22 p. m.
Sandy Hook, 12:26 v. m. The May
flower has passed hospital ship and is com
ing down the course on port tack, leading
the Galatea about a quarter-mile. The
Mayflower went about one starboard tack
at 11:13 and headed for Coney island and
is leading. The cutter lost her wind by
standing in too close to Staten island; three
minutes later the Galatea went about; the
Mayflower caught a streak of wind and in
creased her lead rapidly. The English
sloop, however, had the w'indward position.
"Water unusually calm.
At 11:21, the Mayflower tacked again
and on rort stretch, stood for Staten
island and at 11:24 the sloop crossed the
Galatea's bow, she on starboard tack, about
three lengths ahead. The breeze where
yachts were was strong, but at this place,
is dying out and sailing vessels are almost
becalmed. If the bree.e docs not come out
stiffer it is feared the nice cannot lie made.
The yachts are approaching buoy 10.
The Galatea gained considerably on the
May flower and is now, 12:47 p. in. about
live lengths astern.
Betting at the produce exchange is five
to two on the Galatea.
11:32 a. m. Both yachts are beating to
wiudward. Making "short stretcher and
crossing each other's bows down the chan
nel with the slop, outsailingher opponent.
12:55 p. m. The Mayflower has passed
buoy 10.
1:01 p. m. The Galatea passed the buoy
at l;the Mayflower passad buoy b 1-2 at 1
p. m. The Galatea is very little astern of
her and she w ill pass soon. "Wind southeast,
about 9 miles; weather clear.
1:15 p. m, The Mayflower is leading the
Galatea bv nearly a quarter of a mile, off
Sandv Hook; wind blowing 12 miles an
hour'from the southeast, weather clear;
sea outside light.
1:30 p. m. The Mavflower passed buoy
5all:lS:5S, the Galatea at 1:24:35; the
Mavflower increased her lead to about half
a mile. They are both on the starboard
tack, .carrying mainsail, club topsail, fore
staysail, jib and jib topsail.

Although this is an oil year and no ques

it is evident that both the Republican and
Democratic parties w ill poll a vote largely
in excess of that usually cast in an off year.
The relative strength ot the three principal
parties in the state its exhibited in previous
elections remains unchanged. The main
issue for the Republicans involves the elec

Knights of Labor Lore.
PiTThiiuuG, Sept. 7. It is understood
that at the national convention of Knights
of Labor at Richmond next month changes,
in the laws will be made w hich will id
most practically amount to a complete re
organization of the order. The district
plan has not proven as successful as e
peeled, for the reason that in some places
districts have been formed within dis
triets, and in consequence local strength
has been divided. A great number of di-
trict assemblies also makes it impossible
for the general officers, e en with the :u
sistancc given by the executive board at
the Olcveiaud meeting, to keep up with
the business. The result is important mat
ters frequently cannot be investigated
promptly enough to prevent dissatisfnc
To remedy this, it L proposed to model
the government after that of the United
States that is, to have state organizations
and a supreme or national assembly. The
state assembly, under the new plan, will
have control of the territory under their
jurisdiction, but the acts of" their officers
will be subject to reversal ny the general
master workman. Thus .Mr. Powdcrly
will retain complete control, while gaining
relief from routine work which now falls
on his shoulders. The plan has been thor
oughly canvassed since the adjournment of
the Cleveland convention aim mere is mis
doubt that it will be adopted.
