COMPANIES INCORPORATE RESOLUTE DEFEATS SHAMROCK IN THIRD RACE FOR THE CUP Challenger Finishes Course a Scant Half Boat Length Ahead with Lead of 19 Seconds, the Same Advantage She Had Gained at the Start Defender Therefore Wins by the Amount of Its.Time Allowance 7 Minutes and 1 Second Next Race Friday Sandy Hook, N. J., July 21. Reso lute, defender of the Araerlrji's yacht ir.e rup, name back to-day after two stralRht defcata and won mafmifiennt ly over tlie British challcnncr, Sham rock IV. Shammck finished a ncant half boat Icnirlh ahead, with a lead of ID kcc onds, hut as she hail pained precisely (hat advantage at the start ,tho raci wa& mlr.'iculously In yachting event. a dead heat over the CO mil, course. Resolute won by tho amount of her handicap, seven minutes and one fcci ond. The, fourth race of tie series will bo started Priday. A liBAI, YACHT UACK. Veteran yachtsmen who fotlowcd the trim craft throuch the four hour. three minutes and six seconds of rac- ! inp time, thought back over many years of raclru; without bcinst able to conjure up a picture that could com pare with to-da.y's npectacle. It wa3 a reil yacht race from the start, and It provided a finish rivalling- In oloru r.csr. that of a neck and neck horse race. Resolute had .taker, the load ,uly In her favnrlto l"-mllc "neat to indv-.ard. and roundin-r the stake witn about a ''Barter of a mile lead, sllppou s-iftly do-n the wind with spinnaker and bal loon jib top sail billowins superbly. But Shamrock XV with her prreater spread of canvas would not be denied and slowly but steadily ate up the inter vening distance until with little more than a mile to go, her bowsprit reached, then slowly began to creep past the de fender's stem. RLT.V NECK AND NF'CK Inch by inch, as the spectators watched breathlessly. Shamrock IV moved- and up. A mile from the staRc, they were runnln-r ncc and ncrk throus-h the fluffy little white caps turned up by the breeze. They appeared so close to-:cthrr from the press boats that it seemed as if a man micht have jumped from challenger to defender. Actually the distance was sev eral boat IcnKths. Shamrock IV kept up the steady crawl I ahead until, at tho half mllo mark from the line, 'she was nearly a full boat lensth ahead. Then Resolute caucht a tiny extra puff of wind from somewhere, and Ptrainlns like a thoroughbred under the. lash, crept up, slowly almost Impercepybly. She had got her bow about even with Sham rock's towering ma.st when a puff of steam from the committee boat's whistle registered Shamrock's finish. SOMK .lOC'KKYING But tho finish did not provldo all the thrills of the race. Shamrock IV, Jockey Her Frrqurnt MrrtlncK 'With Prtllhonr Testified to In Trial of Bennington .Harder Cane Manchester, July 21. The fact that Miss Helen Guillow, a trained nurse, graduate of an Albany Hospital, was often in tho company of Byron M. Pcttlbone, who is being tried here for wife murder, was brought out In the testimony presented by the prosecution to-day along with tho testimony of tho medical officials rrom the State laboratory who performed the autopsy. The. numerous times that Petti- hone was known to be motoring, going to tho movies or visiting at the homo of Miss Guillow In Sodom, N. V.. both previous to and directly following the death of Mrs. Pcttihonc were testified to by the prosecution's witnesses. It nlso was testi fied to that Pottlhone asked one Roy Paddock, the undertaker with whom he worked at the Walbridge undertaking rooms and the Individual who prepared the body for burial, to attempt to pre vent autopsy. Dr. B. II, Stone, State pathologist of Burlington, testified to tho effect that the autopsy revealed that tho body was In a healthy condition as to all organs and that It did not reveal the causo of rlealh wlthnnt a. further lahoratorv test 'which wits made hy Dr. C. F. Whitney. Dr. Whitney later told of his laboratory tests including the fact that a minute quantity of the contents of Mrs. rettl bono's stomach was injected Into a white mouse and the mouso dlod within three minutes. The episode of the possible attempt at poisoning in tea on the Sunday evening prccccdlng the tragedy was told by Mrs. Bessie Wright this morning much as ISu genc Rice told the same story yestorday excepting that she quoted tho victim as using stronger language. A group of witnesses wem icallcd to testify relative to seeing Pottibonc In the company of Miss Helen Guillow both previous to and following the death of Mrs. Pottibonc. Colo Bowcn, a taxi driver, told of taking MIbs Guillow and Pcttl bone to Hooslck Falls from Bennington twice in August, 1919, Michael Fitzgerald, a fireman at the Putnam Memorial Hospital told of see ing tho two walking together stivcral times in the hospital corridor. Frank O'Toole, a taxi drivor of Ben nington testified to no less than ten Instances slnco tho middle of March of this year and not later than May 10th that ho had either taken Miss Outllow and Pcttlbone together in his automobile or had taken Pettlbone- to Sodom to seo Miss Guillow. These trips included onoto North Adams from Ben nington, but most of them were to or from Sodom. Edward Shanahan, a deputy sheriff of the county, bvldently had been em ployed to shadow the couple to somo extent as his note book revealed notes of their being In each others com pany frequently between April 26 anJ May 10. ' Because of tho funeral of a near relative of ttomuy Joseph C. Jones', ono of he attorney- for the defense, court took a recess until two o'clock Thursday, afternoon. ing ' position, seemed to have gotten tin .' . rtage at tho start, and started ft' .ii board tack In tho weather berth. tain Adams, of Resolute, offered llttlo opposition, electing to wait for tho port tuck, which came within a few minutes. Hem ho took the windward berth, and pointed Rcsolutu high up Into the wind. Captain Burton turned Shamrock IV's noso further In toward the .lerscy shoro and the two sloops, traveling on dlvergins paths soon wcru nearly a half mile niwirt. Superficially Shamrock IV atpeared ti have tho advantage. But finally, when Slianiroc.k tacked, about two miles oft the .lersey highlands. Capta'n Adams' ttratof-y was proved. He held Ref-oluti en her course and tho yachts iK'gan to citnverge. It was a yuoKTion wnlch would have mo weather berth when the.y met, bat Resolute gained It by a -want 100 yards. Then ensued an exciting scries of sharp tacks, in which Shamrock IV tried to cross RcEoiutc'i bow, Tho nimble yachts were like playful swallows, darting first to port, then to starboard, then back again to port oftentimes almost befre their salts had fl'icd on tho preceding swing. But it was Rcsolutc's game, and tach limn Captain Adams swung her over, she had drawn a little further ahead of hsr .irrtv.il. . . Skipper Burton fainted twice, bringing Shamrock IV about until her sails flapped and then swinging her back on the orlg-tnM.- rjnf h lnst nn the mane-uvrc for Captain Adams refused to be tricked. Klnally Resolute gained a poini win- Captain Adams felt he could make the mark In one long reach and the defender turned her tall on Shamrock IV and scud ded away. Shamrock IV quickly forsook her short tacks, and gave chase. She gained slightly on the reach, but Resolute beat tier to the mark by two minutes and four sec onds, made a close turn to windward, and broke out her greatest wind catchers with surprising rapidity. MTTLK JIB SAIL. DOES IT Shamrock's turn was a bit wider and she was slower breaking out her spinnaker .....I v.illrrtnr nnrl when sho did get them out there was a great gap of daylight between thern. Rctoluto item ncr own on the home stretch until Shamrock IV filled this gap with a little triangular jib sail. This s'eemcd to help her immensely ana she began to close up the Interval until she had passed the defender. When they had crossed the finish, both yachts holstod the "C" flag that indicated unwillingness to race, to-morrow and it was announced the next start would bo Friday. Latnr It was announced Sham rock was to be placed in dry dock to-morrow, presumably for denning and polish ing of hor hull. G. W.
