EGAS IPaEILTOfTIG, VOL XVII. EAST LAS VEGAS, NEW MEXICO, MONDAY EVENING, AUGUST 24, 1896. NO. 253 m nm A GREAT YACHT RACE The First International Event on Fresh Water in Years Won by the "Canada." HOKE SMITH'S LAST WEEK The Chicago Express on the Baltimore & Ohio was Fatal Iy Wrecked, To-day. BIG DAMAGE SUIT FILED Toledo. Ohio, August 24. Th treat yacht race between the "Venoe dor." of Chicago, and the "Canada of Toronto, the first international event on fresh water in many years, has brought to this city thousands visitors from both sides of the border The skipper of the Canada" is Com modore Jarvis, of Toronto, while the Venoedor" is commanded by Com modore Berriman, who is also ber principal owner. The judging com mittee is composed of Oliver . Crom veil, of Mew York; H. C. McLeod, of the Bank of Nova Scotia, Chicago, and E H. Ambrose, a prominent lawyer of Hamilton, Ont. xaobtmen, who have seen the per formanoes of the "Vencedor", say that they have never seen a better sailer, but the general betting favors the Canadian boat. The course is an ex. oellent one, the starting point being few miles from Turtle Light, thus giv ing the boats twenty-four feet of water The first race will be triangular and the second a straightaway, while if a third is necessary, it will be deoided bv the toss of a dollar what form of course shall be adopted. The start in the race was made at 11 o'clock. At 10:30 a time gun was fired and an American ensign hoisted on the committee boat. Twenty minutes later a preparatory gun was fired and the ensign lowered. At 11 o'clock sharp the third gun was fired as a signal to start. 80MB PARTICULARS OF THE EVENT, Toledo, Ohio, August 24. The day for the opening of the international yacht races between the "Vencedor,' of the Lincoln park yacht club, Chica go, and the "Canada," of the Royal Canadian yacht club, Toronto, broke with a clear sky, warm air and a light breeze. A stiff breeze would favor the Amerloan boat, but the prospects are that there will be nothing faster than ten-mile-an-bour wind to blow the yachts twice over a triangular course of twelve miles, off Turtle lighthouse. Burdened with a handicap of 4 min utes which is allowed the "Canada," the conditions of the weather and the time allowance, do not point to the Chicago challenger crossing the finish line first to-day. The match is to be detid-id, with its accompanying cup citizens, in the best two out of three races. , The Maumee river and the bay pre seated a picturesque scene this morn ing with the scores of private and club yachts, big excursion boats, crowded email crafts ut all classes, with colors flying from every point, fore and aft, mingled with the stars and stripes, aad the dominion flag of Canada. The yachts were towed for a start at 11 o'clock. It was reported that a . protest bad been sent the judges by Commodore Berriman. .' the contesting crews. At an early hour this morning the crews of the "Vencedor" and Canada" were officially announced. Commodore Jarvis, of the Royal Cana dian yacht club, insisted on a strict en forcement of the rules prohibiting more than two professionals on board a,eh racer. In consequence Captain Kid Wilds and Tom Crowley . were ruled out of the "Venoedor",- crew. They are old Lake Ontario sailors. A ne crews are as iouows: vence dor," Commodore E. C. Berriman, Captain I. G. Barbour, John Connors, Louis Bernard, Ralph Hoagland, Ed Andrews, A. L. Johnson, R. D. hotter, William Miller, Henry Miller. Miller Brothers are boat builders in Roches ter, N. Y. ; others of the orew come from Chicago. "Canada" Commodore Aemillus Jarvis, G. D. Bolton, W. H. Parsons, J. P. Fearnside, Sidney Small, W. S. Clouston, W. J. Moran, Ed. Roach, W. M. Fertile. bulletins or the race. , 12:40 p. m. The yachts started on time, "Vencedor" slightly in the lead. The wind is hardly strong enough to fill the sails, but is freshening np now. 12:45 p. m The "Canada" is a length behind the "Venoedor" At the tart she blanketed . her. Both boats bad main-sails, stay-sail-jib, flying-jib, and both top-sails out. Wind three miles an hour, with boats drifting to tar-board. Prospects were at start for a drifting raos throughout. : The government weather bureau ob server shewed a six-mile.anhour wind on shore about the time for the yaohts to cross to the starting line, with a probability of a breeze two miles faster on the course, bnt it is so land-locked that the conditions may be reversed. Th wind has been variable, all morn ing, shifting frequently to all points. At this rate, the race will be slow, and the bureau's forecast is for continu ance of light wind to-morrow. .1 :10 p. m. The first leg to wind ward ia the "Vencendor's canvas seemed muob smaller than the Cana da's." Both boats are drifting close together on the starboard tack. The press boat did not reach the course nntd fifteen minutes after the rsce had started, 3 p. CO. Both boat are still on the first kg of the course. It has taken them one hour and forty-fire minutes to pne-balf of it, so light n the wind. The race has developed into drifting match. Unless the gale come up, the race will not be finished within the time limit, bK hours. The "Can ada" Is nearlv a mile in the lead. Af ter the start, she maneuvred for time, in the rftrt to again blanket the "Venoedor," but finally started off on a hunt for a breez, while the " Ven oodor" kept to the northeast. At 13:40, both of the contestants got out their spinnaker booms, but set no sail. the weather conditions remain as at present, the race will' undoubtedly be deolared off. The "Canada" is caton- ing all the wind there is. 2 :65 p. m. The first stake boat, 'Canada," rounded the stake boat at 1:13:40 and immediately put Up her stay sail, pulled in ber balloon jib, and shaped her course southeast on the port track. She came about In two minutes, the "Vencedor" a full' mile behind. She put out her spinnaker, but soon took it In and rounded stake at 1:40 ;65. 27:16 behind' the "Canada". The wind was light, how, ever, both boats drifting, which makes the "Venoedor" safe on the time limit, FATAL WRECK. Th.
