Trophy Defender Outsails the Green
Sloop Decisively, Boat for Boat in
the Crucial Contest —Was
Lipton’s Fourth Effort.
Sandy. Hook, X. J., July 28. —The
America’s Cup stays in America.
This was decided shortly before sun
down when the American defender
Resolute captured the regatta, three
to two, by defeating Sir Thomas Rip
ton’s Shamrock IV in the fifth race
of the series.
Cup Held 70 Years.
The race makes one more failure
in Britain’s efforts to take back the
cup which an American yacht won
from her seventy years ago.
The defender outsailed the green
sloop decisively, boat for boat, in the
last contest of a tempestuous series—
the closest and most hard fought in
the history of the precious trophy—
crossing the line at 7:52:22 only about
twenty-five minutes before expiration
of the six hours time limit. At 8:05:34
Shamrock finished.
Resolute Keeps Lead.
It was a thirty-mile windward and
leeward race, started in light airs
after postponement at fifteen-minute
intervals for two hours and a quar
ter.
After having been led by the chal
lenger two-thirds of the distance to
the first mark, a windward leg, Reso
lute crossed her bow ten miles from
the start and breezed into a lead
which she maintained and steadily in
creased to the finish line.
By the time twenty-two miles of the
course had been covered the defender
was a mile and a half in the lead,
reaching back and forth on her way to
the finish line.
At one time toward the end she was
two miles ahead of Shamrock, but the
challenger came up to within a mile at
the finish.

camped on the West Coast
of Ireland.
London, July 26. —Bombs from sev
eral mysterious airplanes were hailed
upon British troops encamped on the
west coast of Ireland in the last few
days, according to news just received
here. The theory is that the planes
came from England, but they were
manned by Sinn Feiriers wearing Eng
lish uniforms, it is said. The planes
carried British army colors. The news
created consternation in government
quarters. An embargo was immediate
ly ordered on the sale of all airplanes
to Ireland.

Assembly Activities.

strong-arm squad,” seeking revenge
on him for his legislative activities

sat as a member of the tribunal that
heard the social isbs’ case, said he

TEN KILLED AND HUNDRED
HURT IN BELFAST RIOTS
Troops Use Machine Guns When
Sinn Feiners and Unionists Bat
tle in Streets.
Belfast, July 24. —Soldiers found it
necessary to use machine guns against
rioters in fighting throughout the city.
In the Falls road district the Sinn
Feiners were sniping soldiers and p;
lice from roofs and windows of houses.
The troops returned the fire. It is
stated that the wounded persons in
the night’s fighting total more than
100. Thirty arrests were made.
Three unionists were shot dead by
Sinn Fein snipers and another man’s
head was blown off. A man helping
to carry the body of one of the dead
men into a house was slain. Ten per
sons have been killed in the rioting.
Shooting was renewed during the
morning in the Kashmir street area,
where bitter fighting occurred Thurs
day night in clashes between unionists
and Sinn Feiners, with military inter
vention. Early in the renewal of the
hostilities in this district one man was
reported wounded by a shot that
passed through the window of his
home.
Soldiers with fixed bayonets pa
trolled the disturbed streets and
many demonstrations which might
have led to serious results were thus
interrupted. Looting and smashing of
windows prevailed, spirit, groceries,
and licensed premises being especially
singled out.
There was serious rioting at Bain
bridge, the home of Colonel Smyth,
who was assassinated a few days ago.
The offices of a news agency were set
afire and a destroyed, petrol being ob
tained for this purpose from passing
automobiles.

the Paris police to Capt. J. A. Warden,

American authorities from time to
time of their presence in some partic
ular place, but do not attempt to ar
rest them.

UNITED STATES NOTES BEST
Central and South American Nations
Have Their Currency Printed
in This Country.
The American style of banknote has
become the standard in the countries
of Central and South America. The
experience of the Brazilian govern
ment led the way in this, after va
rious disappointments. First the
much-vaunted Austrian system was
tried, the notes being engraved and
printed in England under that system.
They proved a complete failure.
Counterfeiters flourished. The Bra
zilians tried banknotes made in
France, and these were promptly and
extensively imitated as soon as the
counterfeiters could get their plates
and paper ready. Brazil tried Ger
man and English establishments, but
still without success In the protection
of the banknote circulation, and at
last turned to the United States and
found a type of bills practically im
possible to counterfeit with success
So it is no boast, but a mere record
of fact, to state that Americans make
the best banknotes in the world.
Beggars Who Float in Bowls.
In various countries during past
iges beggars have carried bowls, but
China is probably the only country
In which bowls carry beggars. The
bowls are boats, round in shape, and
large enough to carry two beggars,
one of whom maneuvers the craft be
side an incoming steamship while the
other, usually an aged Chinese woman,
does the begging from the passengers,
sometimes making it easier for them
to contribute by reaching upward with
h bag on the end of a long pole. The
dexterity of the beggars in handling
their seemingly impossible boat gives
entertainment in return for alms, says
an exchange. The craft has no visible
distinction between bow and stern,
and the paddlers, coming out from the
shore, sit, one might say, at opposite
ends of the diameter, looking forward,
aDd each paddling vigorously over his
own side of the bowl.
Leap Year Missed.
The rule used to tell if a year is,
or was, a leap year is to divide it by
the figure 4. If it may be done with
out a remainder it is generally sup
posed to prove that the year is a leap
year. This is correct in respect of
all years save in the case of the 100
years, that is, the beginning of a cen
tury, as 1700, 1800, 1900. In those
years the test is to divide by 400. If
these tests are applied to the last 100
years we shall find the year 1900 is
not divisible by 400 and neither was
the year 1800. Leap year occurred
every four years after the year 1800
until 1896, but there was no leap year
between 1796 and 1804 (a space of.
eight years). Neither was there a
leap year between 1896 and 1904.
Wonderful Collection of China.
A famous English firm of china
manufacturers possesses samples of
all the various kinds of china they
have manufactured for nearly 150
years past, Including samples of din
ner services made for Lord Nelson
and other celebrities of bygone days.
