'SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER 7,
A Verv Good Time To Settle.
The Board of Street and Hewer
Directors has been, if anything, too
kind to those property owners who failed
to pay ilene for curbing, psvlng and
putting in sewers. Home of tbs claims
run back to 1887 and the other* are
scattered through the years Intervening
between then aud the present time, and
during all that time the Interest has
been socnmnlstiug.
For the department to allow the bills
to rna so long Is a hardship on ths
debtor, who dtes not relish the Idea of
paying Interest on money which he
earned himself. The delay Is profitable
to the department, howavsr, for had the
collections been made aud tho mousy
placed In bank It wonld only have
realized three per cant thereon: whereas,
the property owner will pay the legal
rate of six per cent, for bis procrasti
nation, If the board Is sincere la its
action of Tuesday evening
Claims aggregating $8? 604 68 were
placed in tbe bauds of City Holloltor
Harman for collection by legal process.
This will have a wholesome effect upon
the property owner. It will teach him
that nothing 1» to be gained, but much
lost, by playing at falde-aud-aeek with a
bill which the city has against him. The
interest Is accumnlstlng all tb* time tbe
game Is going on. Unless he settles
before legal steps are taken, he.wlll flod
that tbe interest and costa mors than
equal the original amount of the llsu.

We have entered upon another school

knowledge this fact and It is a hopeful
sign that the imperfections of tho
system are receiving mure attention thau
ever before.
Only a few years ago education was
based upon a stereotyped form, or-tab
lisbcd in onr schools more thau a ceutm-y
ago, and continued dining the time
when onr fathers aud grandfathers were
school children. In thore days It had
not dawned upon teachers that the
wisest course of education wonld hs one
that would teach a child knowledge that
would help him In that business of life
to which he wonld eventually bo called

of study, and no education was deemed

The world had been ^increasing for

absolutely detrimental to his future suc

The greatest change in educational
methods has been brought about by the
establishment of schools and colleges to
teach the arts, sciences and economies of
every day life. A child can now graduate

women too seriously st any time,
insisting 1 that their provoking didoes
infinite vagaries, while calculated to
producs, under given conditions, some
degree of apprehension, were really too
inconsequential to excite any interest
other than that of oolite curiosity.
While this Is a broad declaration and
strictly in keeping with the chaîne
teristle persiflage of s certain school of
French philosophy It should not be
dismissed without some measure of
dlsoreel consideration. It must be clear
to the reflective mind that the character
of the crimes committed in this.country
and elsewhere within the past few yetrs
is hardly mors remarkable than the
effect which some of them appear to
have produced upon a class of women
who ordinarily contrive to maintain
their mental equilibrium. lu this
connection the above cited remark of
the cynical Frenchman will be found not
inapposite In the way of directing
attention to the ourlons freaks recently
committed by numbers of morbidly
affected women In this country alone.

crowded. Newspaper row at the noon
hour was a surging muss of humanity,
gazing at the bnr
One newspaper indicated tho progress
of tho race by moving miniature yachts
labeled Defender and Valkyrie along a
cornice half way up tho building.
That thousands of strangers came here
to soo the race is evident from tho fact
that last night every hotel In tho City was
llllod with guests. At tho principal hos
tolrlos cot lieds were at a premium. Many
of tho out of town people found on arrival
that It would be almost impossible for
them to soo tho race, as all tho best ex
cursion boats had already sold tickets up
to their passenger limit.
Tli« vi41 of mystery which has kept the
public in ignorance of tho actual dimen
sions of the competing yachts has been
raised. Honest John Hyslop, official mea
surer of tlio Now York Yacht club, passed
his steel tapo from bow to stern, from
deck to masthead and along boom aud
bowsprit of both craft, and the result was
at tho Now York Yacht clubhouse. Val
kyrie III allows tho Defender 29 1-10 sec
onds.
bitin boards.
The Mciumremeuta a Surprise.
This is lues than yachting sharps have
guessed. Tho appearance of tho Valkyrie
and tho calculations which huvo boon
made credited her with an excess of water
lino and sail area over tho American boat
which would allow the latter from one to
two minutes over a 30 mile course. Tho
cutting away of tho after body of tho Val
kyrie and the lighter steel boom which
was recently substituted have undoubted
ly given her n saving on load water lino,
which reduced tho time allowance to less
than half minute.
Tho result of tho measurer's work was a
great surprise. No good judge thought
that the English yacht would give over a
minute and a half in a 39 mile course to
tho Defender, yet many capable critics
said Hint the challenger would give a min
ute, but that she should yield less than
half a minute was astonishing to all tho
smart people.
When Mr. Hyslop brought tho measure
ments to the Now York Yacht clubhouse,
ho said that tho Valkyrie would havo to
allow Defender 29 1-10 seconds. It was
only his business, ho added, to turn in the
measurements to the regatta committee
aud let that committee say what the lime
allowance would be. Nevertheless he felt
that 29 l-lo seconds was the fair thing.
The committee considered tho question
for a long time and then posted a notice
on Hie club's bulletin board to tho effect
that tho allowance would bo 29 seconds,
leaving off Mr. Hyslop's added ono-tonth
of a second. The races will perhaps be
very close, but no tenths of seconds will
separate tho lioata at tho finish.
It will ho noticed that the load watet
lino lengths of the ships show only a dif
ference of forty-hundredths In favor ot
Defender, and that tho length of Defend
er's gaff went considerably toward render
ing tho small advantage gained on tho
water lino. It will also be seen that- tho
sail urea does not produce so great a dif
ference as was expected, and that the gen
eral rating of 100.3ft for Defender, as
against 101.49 for Valkyrie, displays n
margin between the bouts so small that
nobody guessed it.
Mrs. I-el in Was Aboard,
The mendier* of tho syudioote were rep

Mrs. Iselin was with them. She wore a
light yellow Eton jacket suit, which was
n marked contrast to her habit ns she hnl

start of the summer racing of the syndi

set suit aad staid alxiard the City of

sary to add to the weight of Valkyrie III,
and iu this case, who was his substitute
aboard tlio l>ont nt tin* period at whim snu
passed under the oyo of Mr. Hyslop? XTo
lui. si he measured.
That Mr. Watson conned carefully the
proceedings which were essential to the
measurement of the Defender is note
worthy, while It is significant that ho
alone of the British party deemed it nec
essary to watch the work of Mr. Hyslop,
The rest of the Dunraven party apparent
ly absented themselves personally from
the bee. The syndicate and their yellow
dog mascot took a short sail upon the
Neckan during the Interesting period.
The Valkyrie got out of drydock after
her official measurement, and the work
upon Defender was not especially interest
ing from the standpoint of the English
party.
They were numbered ns they stepped
aboard and promptly tabbed by Mr. Ily
slop ere ho measured the base of the boats
at water lino. Each was measured with a
full crow aboard, and after the measure
ment Was completed Mr. Hyslop journeyed
to his home, near the" East river, upon an
Eastern Manhattan terrace and carefully
ramie his computation.
Among the crew of the Valkyrie are
seven sailors from tho Amorito, Mr.
Brokaw's now Cary Smith schooner. They
are imported sailors and may be more ac
ceptable to the foreign party for this rea
son.
