The' prospeots tor a real race, to-day, be tween the international yachts, "Yen- cedor" and "Cunada" ara consider ably better than yesterday.

SULTAN REPORTED DEAD Saratoga, N. Y., August 25. Ex- Senator Thomas C. Piatt has onoe again demonstrated that he is the boss of tbe republican party of JNew xorg state. in all that tbe term implies Despite tbe determined opposition that has been manifested to bis continued rule by tbe Milbolland machine, the McKinley league, tne union league and other organizations of power and infltienoe, fully 600 of tbe 70S dele jrat?s to the republican state conven tion assembled in Convention hall were there to do bis bidding. It is a big convention and the great bail was nil ed in every part when State Chairman Hackett called it to order. Tbe only candidate to be placed in nomination are governor, lieutenant governor and judge of tbe court of appeals. Govern or Morton is not a candidate for re- nomination, and the leading contes tants for tbe prize are Hamilton Fish B. B. Odell, George W. Aldridge, Clarence Lexow, of the Lexow com mittee fame, and Francis Handricks Tbe an'i-Platt minority will bestow the compliment of a solid vote upon Hon. Cbas. T. Saxton. Tbe indications are that Mr. Aldridge, who is state com missioner of public works, and hails from Rochester, will be the nominee for governor; Hamilton Fish or Timo thy L. Woodruff, of Brooklyn, for lieutenant-governor; while tbe judge ship nomination will go to Irving G Vann, of Syracuse, and who, by ap pointment of Governor Morton, is fill ing tbe vacancy in the court of appeals caused by the resignation of Judge Peckbam. When the . convention had been called to order. Congressman Frank Black, of Rensselaer, was introduced as temporary chairman. He made a ringing speech and his allusions to McKinley and Hobart ana tne neces sity for tbe maintenance of national credit were applauded to the echo. Tbo roll was , then called for members of tbe various committees. That on credentials will have its bands full in deciding upon the- contest from the Herkimer district, where ex Senator Warner Miller was turned down last week. He . beads the contesting delegation, and as a large number of delegates from elsewhere are favorable to him, the matter prom ises to be bitterly fought, out. There has been talk of a bolt in the event of Miller being refused recognition, but it is scarcely likely that the matter will be carried to this extreme. The planks favoring a national republican ticket and the gold standard will be couched in the strongest language. PLATT NOT A CANDIDATE. Saratoga, N. Y., August 25. Thomas C. Piatt is out of it. Tbe race for the gubernatorial nomination is a free-for-all. Tbe convention itself will deoide. This morning, Mr. Piatt, be fore going to breakfast, sent word to George Waldridge and Hamilton Fish, two of tbe leading candidates, tnat be was absolutely out of it, and that it was a free , and open race for the others.

Maglll, reotor of the Trinity Episcopal church, who was as sisted by Right Rev. Henry C. Potter, bishop of New York.

Owing to the reoent illness of Mr. Vanderbilt, . the function was semi private, although tbe relatives of the two families present mado the gather ing of no inconsiderable size.
