LOS ANGELES: SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 8, 1893.
VIGILANT AND VALKYRIE.
The Cup Defender Wins the
She Beats the Britisher Home
The Center-Boarder In BTery Way
the Best Sailer.
Superior Yeehtfmanshlp of the English
Crew—lt W» a Magnificent Con
test From Start to
By the Associated Tress.
Kew York, Oct. 7.—Bowling along
under a fair wind tbe American cup de
fender Vigilant crossed tho line at the
Sandy Hook lightship at 3:30 this after
noon, the winner in tbe first of tbe in
ternational races for tbe America's cup.
The Valkyrie arrived home almost
eight minutes later, and both were at
once taken in tow by their respective
tenders and hurried to the anchorage off
Bay Ridge. It was a magnificent con
test from a naval point of view, and
demonstrated, for the day at least, the
snperiority of the center-boarder over
tbe cutter, as well as the superior
yachtsmnusbip p! the men who handled
the EDglish boa'rt. There was only one
thing lacking, and that was wind.
Never more than a light wind prevailed,
and sometimes it was scarcely more
than a puff.
AVhen tbe committee in charge of the
race decided that the course should be
gin with a lee run to east-northeast be
fore a west-northwest wind, a signal was
rnn up to announce the fact. This was
at 1) a.m. Tbe skippers In charge of
the racers, haviag accepted the condi
tions of the weather and the judgment
of the committee, began to skirmish for
a favorable position above the line. The
preparatory gun was fired sharply at
11:16, and, when the starting gun was
touched off, there was only a qnestion
of about 150 feet between tbe two yachts,
the Valkyrie having the lead. The
wind was blowing at tbe rate of about
seven miles an hour, and the cutter kept
on increasing ber lead. At the end of a
mile she was a good two lengths ahead.
The Valkyrie increased her lead at least
one more laagth during the first two
miles. From that point np to the dis
tance of four and a bait miles the Vigi
lant held her own. Then a change came.
Suddenly tbe Vigilant caught a slant
wind, although the Valkyrie was not
touched by it, and within 15 minutes
she was fully a quarter of a mile in the
lead. In another quarcer of an hour the
American boat not only held her lead,
but increased it to a full mile before she
sailed five miles. About tbls time the
wind hauled away round to the south
southwest, necessitating some changes
in the sails. The Valkyrie remained at
her mile distance and could not gain an
inch. Hall an hour later the wind
shifted again, and once more the spin
nakers were rigged. The Valkyrie could
not improve her position, but on the
contrary dropped off.
Tbe Vigilant went on ahead and did
not stop till the end of tbe outward
journey. The American boat made the
turn or the outer mark amid tbe great
est enthusiasm. Tbe wind was now
about west, and it became a question of
long reach. It is on the reach tbat the
cutter is supposed to be at her best.
During the reach, however, with all
things equal, the Vigilant actually
gained on the cutter.
There was another shift in the wind
and tbe boats were both compelled to
sail closely to the wind. The Valkyrie
certainly appeared to gain ground.
The distance for the Valkyrie
overhauling the Vigilant was consider
able, but all the time she wae BaggUep
off to leeward, while tbe centerboard was
holding her head at the wind. The
Valkyrie caught a s'.ight wind and picked
up probably a quarter of a mile.
Up to tbe end of the course there
was no incident. The Vigilant crossed
the line on the same tack, while Valky
rie, having sagged away to leeward, had
to go abont before she could cross.
At the home line the flotilla of excur
sionists formed a crescent. Thousands
of spectators braved immersion and
clambered to every coigne of vantags.
They showed joy in their countenances
as the Vigilant crept steadily nearer the
swinging light ship. Their joy hurst its
bounds as the brave little Vigilant
dipped gracefully through the waves,
and long before tbe screaming of the
whistles told that the royal battle was
ended a hundred thousand tongues pro
claimed in true American record that as
yet the queen of center-boarders and
cutters is here and has still the speed
and strength to bear the name of the
cup defender in reality.
The regatta committee of the New
York Yacht club gave out the following
table of figures: Start, actual time,
Vigilant, 11 ;28:30j Valkyrie, 11:25:25.
Turning to outer mark, Vigilant,
1:50:50; Valkyrie, 1:48:50. Finish,
Vigilant, 3:30:47; Valkyrie. 3:38:23.
Klapred time, Vigilant, 4:05:27; Valky
rie, 4:13:23. Corrected time, Vigilant,
4:05:27; Valkyrie, 4:11:35.
Thus the Vigilant won by 5 minutes
and 43 seconds on the corrected and offi
cial time. It will be seen the Valkyrie
gained on the stretch home, as she was
8 minutes and 0 seconds behind when
the outer mark was turned, and 7 min
utes 30 seconds at the finish, in actual

The average cost per member for tbe
year ending June 30, 1892, was $143.75,
and for 1803, $140.95. The increase in
the average number present during tbe
year 1892 was 263, and 1893, 405. There
w«i« 3T/ less deaths in 1893 than the
previous year. The average aye of those
cared for in 1892 was 58.01 years, and in
1893, 59.80 years. The average number
of members present in 1893 was 14,601;
tbe whole number cared for, 23.460.
The number in state homes was 5501, an
increase of 171. The national govern
ment's payment, to state homes was
$582,361.75. The amount expended for
homes was $2006.94, aside from construc
tion and repair.
The gold cure for drunkenness was
tried in the homes and all branches with
success, about 14,000( ?) being reformed.
It ia pointed out that the depression in
business has materially increased the
nnmber of inmates in the homes.
The amount appropriated for the year
eading June 30, 1894, was $2,378,503.89.
The board submits no estimates for the
year 1895, bnt says the abnormal in
crease for the first three months of the
current year warns tbe board that the
appropriations for the present year will
be insufficient for next year. The
amount estimated fer state and terri

per cent of the old soldiers should have
been adicted to the drink habit, bnt in
quiry of the Assosiated Press confirms
the figures. It is just possible, though,
that an extra cipher got added to the
number inadvertently, and that General
Franklin intended to say in his report
that 1400 instead of 14,000. veterans in

A Continuous Session to Be Bald Till
the Repeal Bill Ia Disposed of.
No Compromise Will Be
By the Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. 7.—Secretary Osf»
lisle made a visit to tbe senate wing of
the capitol this afternoon. His visit
created a mild sensation, as the secreta
ry had jast come from a conference with
the president, and it was naturally sup
posed that he had some important mes
sage. He spent two hours in conference
with various Democratio senators, among
others Yoorhees and Harris.
The report was soon in circulation tbat
he was sent as the president's repre
sentative to arrange the terms of an
agreement with the opposing forces of
the Democratic ranks in the Senate, and
there were senators ready to name the
terms which he offered. Inquiry, how
ever, developed the fact that they were
merely dealing in surmises. The pur
poses of the secretary's visit seems to
have been just the opposite of those at
tributed to him. Senator Vance told a
representative of the Associated Presa
that Carlisle had gone to tbe capitol for
the purpose of preventing a compromise,
and Senator Voorhees virtually con
firmed the statement.
After the conference with Carlisle. Vor
hees said to an Associated Press repre
sentative that the administration forces
had no compromise to suggest or ask,
and they were still determined to make
the fight on the old lines; that Wednes
day night sessions would be begun; that
he had assurances tbat there would b»
a quorum of tbe repeal senators on
band; that they would remain until tbe
bill could be disposed of, and there
would be no adjournment until it
should be passed.
It would seem, therefore, if there
were to be a compromise, it. could not
come until alter the night session was
tried. It is but fair to say there are
very few repeal senators as sanguine of
success in night sessions, or of the suc
cess of the bill in Us present shape, as
is Voorhees. A large majority of tbe
senators assert that the bill cannot be
passed except in a modified form, and
others agree with Senator Manderson in
the assertion that if no compromise is
reached a receßS of the senate until De
i cember will be necessary, which would
virtually mean tbe abandonment of the
Senator Care?, who has not so far
identified himself with either side, said
tonight the inevitable result of tbe
night session experiment would be an
agreement upon a compromise bill.
Voorhees Given Notice of the Holding
of a Continuous Session,
Washington, Oct. 7.—ln the senate,
after the transaction of routine business
and the assignment of several resolu

the repeal bill was taken up. Voorhees
