TltF, AMERICA'S TTT PTAV TIKRE
The Resolute won the, final and rubber
race out of five tests over the Shamrock
IV. The America's cup stays in the hands
of Uncle Sam. The result Is gratifying to
every patriotic American On the other
hand there will be general admiration for
the spirit of true sportsmanship manl-
l fested by Fir Thomas Lipton There will
be gladness everywhere that he took at
least two races. Everybodv will rejolre
that he proposes to make another at
tempt to take the cup home with him next
year with a new rhallencer H Is one of
the greatest patrons of International
i sport on record.
J The races for the America's cup from
year to year have Intense Interest for
sportsmen, but as a practical influence
in yachting they long since ceased to
j have material significance. re.p sea
I yachtsmen have contended for years that
l the average- craft built for International
racing have little value for practical use.
The Resolute is said to be the lightest In
construction of any boat ever turned out
hy the Herreshoffs. Nicholson, thp de.
signer of the Shamrock IV, nay? that the
eraft's hull Is even lighter thanthal of
the Resolute despite the latter's three
skins'of wood. A writer In the Brooklyn
Eagle say that the Resolute and the.
' Shamrock are both over-rigged and built
to race in what the Beaufort scale would
I register as a "light breeze." He adds:
"Shamrock had trouble with her bow.
sprit during the first ra- for the cup.
That was the day Resolute lost through
the parting of her throat halyard. Also,
more and more that they do not want 1
either to stand still or go back hut to help !
Vermont move forward In progress and j
larger life.
On v.-hat does Mr Hartness put empha-
sis. He puts first the -oune men and j
young women of Vermont and their edu- j
cation because he realizes as every one '
of us known that they arc the hope of
a greater Vermont, in pleading for more I
educa'tonal faeilitlec he says. I
"The children of the countryside, are the
best timber for the future character .f
Vermont."
The: e are not the words of a mere in
dustrialist They constitute the slogan of
3 man who as head of the State Board of
Rducs. tion saw all conditions and handi
caps cf education in our rural communl-
lit: lii.i mprtimzefj wun ine aspiration i
nf tl tir people for better things. And
right here let us say that Mr. Hartness
would s'lll be in that position but for his ,
commendable determination that no one '
in a later race, Shamrock's deck tried to
pay a visit to her masthead. The rtrain
caused the deck to buckle and it had to
be stre ngthenfd when the yacht was haul
ed out at the Staten Island Ship Building
Tard last week Those are poltive facts.
Therefore we have a right to assume that
the challenger no more likes a breeze
stronger than 12 to IS knots, than the
white defender of the trophy."
However, we do not look for practical
effects in our yacht races any more than
in baseball, or on the football diamond.
Yachting Is the one international sport
that challenges the attention of the en
tire sporting world. It is a beautiful con
test, and does much to promote the spirit
j of good sportsmanship. It Is probably an
mm h a fixture as any other International
sport
Sandy Hook, N. .1., Jnly 27. Defender
Resolute gave the British challenger
Shamrock IV the worst druhblng of the
1920 regatta In the final race nf the series
to-day, winning, boat for boat by 11 min
utes and IS seconds and the America's
famous yachting cup remains American
property.
Overcoming a 40-second lead and the ad
vantage of a windward berth which Sham
rock IV had taken at the start, the fleet
defender held a lead of four minutes and
cigKt seconds at the half way stake of the
30 mile course, and crossed the finish line
13 minutes and five seconds ahead. In
cluding her handicap, of sis minutes and
40 seconds which she did not need, Res
olute won by 19 minutes and 45 seconds.
In capturing the series and retaining
possession of the America's trophy. Res
olute came from behind after Shamrock
had taken two rares and won out by reg
istering three straight and impressive vic
tories. Shamrock IV won the initial rare
when the defender was forced out by an
accident to her rlcging and captured the
second In a fickle wind that left Resolute
becalmed most of the way Resolute won
the third by her time allowance of seven
minutes and one second, running a dead
heat with the challenger. Her other two
victories were won boat for boat.
Fir Thomas Lipton, owner of Ihe greei
challenger volcrd what appeared to be
the unanimous verdict of yachtsmen who
had' seen the- five races when he declared
to-nigbt thai "the best boat won.''
Nature provides a rare setting for to
day's historic finish The sun, a great, fire
ball, was fast dropping through a red and
purple haze over the point of Sandy Hook.
when Resolute, clipping swiftly through
the deep greep water, with billowy white
sails silhouetted against the haze, bore
down on the mark.
A moment later, she flashed across the
golden finish line that the Dotting sun
had laid down on the rippling waler be.
tween squat Ambrose Channel lightship
and the committee boat Barryton
A mile or more behind, her own great
sails bellying broadlv. Shamrock IV was
coming about for the run to the maik
after n reach out from the Jersey coast.
when the white slenjl ball ot the Barry
ton dropped aniJ the shrieking of whistle
and sirens from the lltt'e fleet of spectator
craft proclaimed Resolute- victory
The bcalen ChaJlenger swept qulrkh
down the course, striving tn shorten the
intervening gap and save as much as -hc
could the bitterness of her defeat.
But as if to emphasize the great differ
ence in time between the two finishes,
the flaming sun dropped like a plummet
Into the deepening Ii.'izp, and a pale moon,
which had hcen hut dimly traced against
the sky when Resolute, finished, stood
out with increasing radiance.
When Shamrock IV finally pot over the
ltne, the sun was but a shadowy circlet
on the horizon beyond the haze, and the
shimmer on the water had turned from
gold to silver.
Resolute by this time had described a
great circle and had come hack to the
markto see her rival finish. As the chal
lenger crossed the mark her British crew
let out thioe. ringing heers for the vic
tor, and the conquerors responded with
lu&ty cheers for Shamrock IV and her
crew.
Sir Thomas Lipton, who built the chal
lencer In his fourth effort lo lift the bot
tomless old liewter mug that is tho
America's cup, and take It back to itn
original home in Kngland, turned away
from his humble sailing beauty and sent
his steam yacht Victoria full speed ahead
to overtake and congratulate the. Reso
lute's crew Ho returned Just In time to
see Shamrock cross the line
The aged sportsman's gameness as he
drew away from his own sloop to con
gratulate the winner elicited a salvo of
cheers from those on board the spectator
craft. And Sir Thomas responded as
Jauntily as if he had not seen his own
fondest hope once more haffled.
Sir Thomas announced immediately after
the race that he would build a ncn chal
lenger and come across again in l?IK to
have another try at lifting the America'
cup, provided some other yachtsman did
not challenge and win the cup sooner.
"I was beaten hy a better boat,'' ho
said, "1 have no complaint to make. But
I am greatly disappointed."

CLKMKNT VI'AISn. PAT
(From the, New York Tribune)
There is precious little logic in Governor
elements reasons for refusing to call his
Legislature in special ses-sion to ratify
tho suffrage amendment He talks of the
Constitution, the freemen of Vermont and
the right of .self-government and seeks
to reverse the Supreme Court nf the
Fnited States in its decision rejecting the
referendum provisions of State Constitu
tion. But that derision Is a literal applica
tion of tho Federal Constitution, and the
freemen of Vermont who fought under
Ethan Allen made no objection to this
clause, when their State entered the Union
In 1791, the first to be added to the new
nation. The language of the Federal Con
stitution declares that an amendment shall
be valid "when ratified by the Legislatures
of three-fourths of the several States."
Governor Clement's kick is not against
the Supreme Court, but against General
TV'ashlngton, James Madison and the
others who grafted the Federal Constitu
tion. As a matter" of fact, Governor Clement
is slmplv giving some very poor reasons
for being a v-ry "sot" individual. But
he is entirely within his rights, and the
principle of State independence involved
is a very important one We gladly
agree with Governor clement that mere
party expedie nev should not control. Ver
mont was perhaps the most democratic
of all the New England States. It fought
a lone hand in the Revolution and fought
it ve.rv well, It if, certainly entitled to
its own opinion upon the. ratification of
the fedtra! amendment.
Tho pity is that a Governor who has
no authority whatever tn vote or pass
upon such ,i federal amendment should
happen to be In n strategic position
which prevents the ratifying authority,
the Leglrlature, from assembling before
Its appointed date for this purpose. The
Legislature is declared to be overwhelm
ingly for ruffrage When It does assem
ble In due roursc of time it will ratify
the amendment and Governor Clement
cannot lift a finger tn stop It. He can
oniy rteUv ratification. He cannot ulti
mately prevent it.
The Tribune greatlv regrets Governor
Clement's derision, which seems to be
founded on bad logic and a serious con

quented by Mr. Scott and saw a fine fowl
cooking. "That is very good." said the
hungry quests. "You may serve that for
my dinner." You cannot have that, sir,"
replied the landlord. 'That is being cook
ed for Mr. Scott, the traveler." "1 know
Mr. Scott very well," uald the gentleman.
"Is lie stopping hero'.'" "Oh, no sir," an
swered the landlord, "Rut six months ago
ho ordered a fowl to be ready for him at
precisely 2 o'clock to-day, and we are ex
