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

''Barter of a mile lead, sllppou s-iftly

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.

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

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

Slianiroc.k tacked, about two miles oft

ttratof-y was proved. He held Ref-oluti

Resolute gained It by a -want 100 yards.
Then ensued an exciting scries of sharp

to port, then to starboard, then back
again to port oftentimes almost befre

Shamrock IV about until her sails flapped
and then swinging her back on the orlg-tnM.-

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.

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

rock was to be placed in dry dock to-morrow,
presumably for denning and polish

Convention Adopts Resolution
Giving Him Nomination De
spite Fact that Nebraskan Had
Previously Declined It
Lincoln, Neb.. July 21. Tho prohibition
national convention to-day adopted a res
olution tendering tho party'H presidential
nomination to William .1. Bryan' despite
the fact that a communication from Mr.
Bryan declaring he would dccllno was
read. Only six of the iVinro than 200 dele
gates opposed tho resolution. The resolu
tion only tenders the nomination to Bryan
and he will not be considered as actually
nominated until he accepts.
In naming Mr. Bryan tho convention up
set precedent as well an Its program by
selecting the candidate on tho first day.
Nominations wem not scheduled until Fri
day. The nomination came after s struggle of
tl-e delegates which was started by the
resolution of W. I. ('alderwood of Mlnno
s'ta. ' tendering" Mr. Bryan the leader
ship and asking him to icply promptly to
the convention whether he. would accept.
At'empt , f tab!-! tldi resolution onls re
mltirl In an bourn recess during which Its
opponents led by Clinton N. Howard, of
New York urged Charles Rryan, brother
of th-s nominee, to make public communi
cations he was known to have concerning
Mr, Bryan's attitude..
Thir. brought out the fact that a propos
ed stamprdc. plans for which became
known yesterday, had resulted In Mr.
Howard sending a telegram to Mr. Bryan
asking if he would accept the nomination
and that tho Nebraskan had replied, say
ing he would decline. Speaker;; criticised
Mr. Howard for what they termed his re
calcitrant attitude" In net making public
the correspondence sooner, when It was
generally known this morning that he had
heard from Mr. Bryan.
Charles Bryan sent a letter to the
convention after it reconvened urging
that it reject the resolution and say
ing that Mr. Bryan's friends would op
pose his acceptance.
Speakers then charged that secret
conferences between delegates and
Charles Bryan had been held In the
last 24 hours with the apparent object
of preventing Mr. Bryan's nomination
on the ground that he did not want
to be named.
Miss Marie Brehm of California, first
woman to be elected permanent chair
man of a national political convention
relinquished tho chair and placed Mr.
Bryan in nomination. The nomination
was seconded by Nebraska. Florida.
Mlranurl, Illinois, California, Wisconsin
and Ohio.
To-night the delegates heard several
speakers assail the Republlcann and
Democrats and toll of "the wonderful
success of the Prohibition Party.
Every effort wan being made to got
in touch with Ir. Bryan and learn
his attitude toward the convention's
action.
