Chicago, July 10, 1894.—The National
Association of Marine Engineers will not go
on a strike to assist other labor organiza
.Mr. E. II. Kenny, chairman of the Local
(Grievance Committee and of the Head
quarters Committee of the National Asso
ciation of Mariue Engineers, was seen in re
gard to the matter, and said: “The Associa

body. It is a benevolent organization.”
Mr. Thomas F. Dowd, secretary of the
National Marine Engineers’ Association,
heartily indorsed all of Mr. Kenny s state
The Chicago Seamen’s Union, at a meet
ing yesterday, decided that should the rail
road troubles not be settled before \V ednes
dav the sailors would go out on a sym
pathetic strike. . .,
This will tie up all the sail craft in the
harbor. The men have no grievance against
the vessel owners, but sav they will s|au'l
by labor in other lines. Yesterday all the
coal companies stopped shipments from
Buffalo until the strike is over. .
With the closing down of the Illinois
Steel Companv. Iron ore shipments to
Chicago points have stopped, and with the
Chicago lumber yards all shut up, there is
no demand for boats in the lumber trade.
The docks where railroad ties and cedar
posts are handled have been all filled up and
the other companies Jiave dropped out of the
market. . .
The elevators have stopped receiving grain
altogether, and the light shipments of grain
make that trade extremely limited.
Kankakee, 111., July 10, 1894.—The local
American Railway Union is in a state of
turmoil. Most of the men wno struck on
the Big Four Railway, on Saturday night,
have resumed work, whereupon the men on
X the Indiana, Illinois and I^wa received or
ders from Debs to go out last night.
That road is doing a large business, hand
ling from seventeen to twenty extra trains
each day. The men are receiving extra pay,
consequently when the order came to go out
everv man said be would leave tbe union be
fore he would leave bis work. The Illinois
Central men, who have been out since tbe
first of the strike, are very angry. A com
mittee will visit Debs to ask him to settle tbe
difficulty. _
Springfield, 111., July 10, 1894.—Gov
ernor Altgeld summarized the strike situa
tion last night as follows:—
“The State has six regiments of infantry,
two troops of cavalry and two batteries of
artillery with eight Gattling guns in
Chicago. The forces, State and local, have
the situotion thoroughly in hand, and if
there is no extension of the strike into other
trades, the trouble will all be over in a few
“Should the strike extend among the other
trades it will take a week or so longer. We
have been furnishing the railroads prompt
assistance in the way of protection all over
the State whenever and wherever called on,
'j afi'l during the last week we have had troops
at six different points outside of Chicago.
1 “ During the last four or five days there
has been very iittlo difficulty over the State,
and nearly all the roads that can get men to
operate their'trains have today been running
nearly all their regular trains, both passenger
and freight.
Monon Trestle Destroyed—Foolish
Marshal—Shots to Scare.
Hammond. Ind.. July 10, 1894.—A gang
*f incendiaries set fire during the night to
a trestle bridge over the Calumet River,
three miles south of here ou the Monon Road.
It was completely destroyed and traffic on
the line is effoctually blocked until a tempo
rory structure can be erected. The
bridge was seven hundred feet long and
twenty feet above water. It was not
guarded by militia or deputy marshals, and
nothing could be done to save it from de
struction when the fire was discovered by
trainmen half a .milo away. The train
which was coming in two sections from
Louisville auu Indianapolis is due here at
seven o’clock, is already stalled at the river..
When the burning was reported to Adjutant
General Robbins, he sent a squad of miiitia
I men to patrol the $1,000 foot trestle bridge
on the Erie roa'd, four miles south of here,
and the one of equal size over the Calumet
on the Nickel Plate, four miles southeast,
Lew Wallace, Jr., of Indianapolis, a law
yer aud nephew of the famous soldier and
author of the same name, was arrested at
the Michigan Central depot early this morn
ing and is now bebiud the bars at the City
Hall. He was one of the U. S. marshals?
deputized by Marshal Arnold at Chicago
for duty within the northern district of
Illinois. He came over the line, however,
yesterday, and about midnight, after being
a customer of various saloon-keepers, pro
ceeded to exceed his authority by ordering
the principal saloons to close. Ho was ac
"ompanieu by one of the Indiana marshals,
who was afraid to interfere because Wal

scattering shots.
Nothing happened during the night in
samp or in the centre of the city to disturb
:ho 700 militiamen, except the firing of shots
5U two occasions, evidently to frighten the
troops. A company of infantry and a bat-(
cerv were called out ou the alarm, but the
men who did the shooting could not bet
found. , ,
Captain Hartzc came here early this;
morning from Chicago on a special train;
with his men of Company D, Fifteenth In-1
!ani! v of Regulars, who did the shooting out
Sunday. They say .that the track* were;
cleared, and Captain Hartze, on reporting to
Adjutant, General ltotibius, was informed
that the services of his company were not
needed. The company returned to Chicago
before the citizens know of their presence.
Chicago, July 40. 1804.—At a meeting of
the Illinois Club, the largest and most influ
ential business men’s club of the West Side,
last night, the following address was unan
imously adopted:
To His Excellency, Grover Cleveland.
President of the United States, Washington,
D. C.
The Illinois Club, 400 strong, of the city of
Chicago, gratefully thanks the President for
his patriotic action in behalf of law and
order and for the maintenance of the dignity
of the Federal courts of this city. Every
word of your wise and prudent orders and
timely proclamation is hereby earnestly en
dorsed. We congratulate the American
people that our President knows his duty.

The Executive Committee of the Young
Men's Democratic Clubs of Massachusetts
desires to thank you for the firm stand and
prompt action which you have taken in the
present labor troubles to uphold and enforce

A Mall Train Started on the Nlekle
Plate—Other Movements.
Cleveland, O., July 10, 1804.—A mail
train with a full complement of men was
made up in the Nickel Plate yards here this
morning and sent west. An attempt will be
made to get the train into Chicago. If suc
cessful this will be the first mail train
over the road since the tio-up last week.
Through passengers who could not be
forwarded to their destination by
some other route have been boarded and
cared for in this city by the company. T wo
freight trains from Pittsburg came into the
city over the Cleveland and Pittsburg road
this morning. There was no demonstration
on their arrival and*they are now lying in
the vards.
The programme of the railway managers
today is to begin operations in the city yards
of the Lake Snore Road and then commence
the movement of trains in the other yards.
Up to the present time the employes of the
Lake Shore at Collinwood have steadfastly
refused to join the ranks of
the strikers, and the company
is confident it can open the
blockade placed against it in this city with
out great difficulty. The old men were
given until ten A. M. to return to work and
those who did not show up at that time will
be considered discharged.
The strikers are determined to prevent the
movement of cars, and olaimed at first there
was not a break in the ranks of their men,
and that new man could not be secured. The
railroads have the protection of the police
and the United States Deputy Marshals to
prevent trouble in the yards.
an Alleged Workingmen* Meeting.
Cincinnati, July 10, 1894.—The meeting
of the Trades Union 'nyst night in sympathy
with the strike crowded 7,000 people into
Music Hall, and left an overflow meeting
of over 3,000 outside. Resolutions were
adopted endorsing the strike and censuring
President Cleveland.
A feature of the meeting was an address
by Rev. J. IV. Magruder of Wesley Chapel,
in which he favored arbitration, but con
demned sympathetic striking as a remedy
worse than the evil. He was applauded. F.
W. Phelan, representing Debs, the last
speaker, announced that a committee would
visit Mayor Caldwell today and ask him to
join in a petition to Pullman to end the strike
by abitration, Phelan said one dose after
another of this strike would be given until
the public would be compelled to take one
side or the other. The result of PhoJan’s
attempt will be known today.
The railroads here all report an improved
outlook last night, except on the St. Louis
division of the Big Four. The men on the
Southern division of the Queen and Crescent
met at Somerset, Ky., last night and decided
against sympathetic striking. Reports from
different divisions of the Columbus, Hock
ing Valiev and Toledo Railway report trains
started. 'At Lexington, Ky., last night the
men joined the Louisville strikers. The
Kansas division of the Ohio Central is on a
strike from Corning, O., to Charleston,
W. Va. _
Men Will Not Go Out to Please Debs
—Trains Moving Freely.
Buffalo, N* Y , July 10, 1894.—Tho prob
ability of a strike in Buffalo grows less with
each hour that sees Deb’s order to take a
hand in the fight not acted upon. President
Mullifean continues to assert that he will not
call out his men until he can see something
to be gained by it. The real reason for the
delay, however, is said to be lack of encour
agernent from railroad men not affiliated with
tho A. R. U.
It is reported that Mallican yesterday
visited the South Buffalo yards and freely
exhibited Debs’ message. Little satisfaction
was accorded him, some of thp meu emphat
ically declaring they would not go out in
supnort of Debs.

Twenty-five firemen, brakemen and switch
men left here at an early hour this morn
ing for Collingwood. the yards near Cleve
land, to take tbe places of strikers on the
Big Four Road. The Lake Shore also sent
a number of men to Cleveland last night.
Kansas City, Mo., July 10, 1894.—The
night switching force on the Missouri Pa
cific went out at midnight last night. The
strike involves all roads at. this point except
the Union Pacific.
Puhcell, I. P., July 10,1894.—In response
to an order from Debs the switchmen, yard
men, and roundhouse men at this point
have gone out. This is a terminus of the
Santa Fe and the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe
systems, and as a result of the striKe these
roads are completely tied up here. Every
thing is quiet.
Cincinnati, 0., July 10,1894.—The freight
yard force of firemen on the Big Four in
the local yards, to the number of nineteen,
went out on strike at seven o’clock this
morning. The freight and yard firemen of
the entire nine divisions of the Big Four are
expected to follow, as the action of the local
men wUs based on a vote of the firemen of
the svstero. The Board of Directors of the
Big Four division of the Brotherhood met
here and canvassed the vote. Tney have
notified Chief Sargent, and he is expected
to call out all Big Four men. There are
about 1,000 freight and yard firemen in the
division. The men demand a restoration of

the Wheeling and Lake Erie and the Ohio
Central Railroads have telegraphod Presi

Lol Angeles, Cal., July 10, 1894.—The
itrikers in this city appear to be losing
pound, and the situation becomes more
favorable to the railroads each day. Nearly
ill local trains are departing on both the Santa
Fe and Southern Pacific on schedule time,
ind the Southern Pacific has taken the ini
dal steps towards moving its freight. A
vain was made up today for Yuma, and
ater one for Santa Barbara. The company
expects to start them today. A Santa Fe
vein arrived iast night from Pmton, N. M.,
laving two Pullmans attached. It is one of
ivo trains that have been tied up there since
;lie strike was declared.
Sacramento, July 10, 1894.—Information
ivas received here soon after midnight this
norning that martial law would be pro
ilaimed at three o’clock this afternoon, and
,hat the regular troons were on their way
lere to disperse the railway strikers. The re
jort caused the wildest excitement. The
itrikers tiegau arming themselves and are pre

Pittsburg, July 10, 1894.—The call of
President Debs for the assistance of the rail
road men in this district met with as little
response so far as have the efforts of the
organizers who have been working here
during the past few weeks to establish
bi ancnes of the A. R. U. The fact that a
strike had been ordered to take effect
this afternoon would scarcely be recognized
from the appearance of the railroad yards
here, this morning. Very few men can be
found who are in favor of going out just
now or at any other time unless they have
some grievance. A Pittsburg, Fort Wayne
a Chicago employe said, this morning,
that there was littie likelihood of any con
siderable number of men on that road obey
ing tho order to strike. “There are a few
sore-heads,” he said, “who are willing to
strike at any time, but they do not repre

Massiliqn, Ohio, July 10, 1894.—A gener
al meeting of the organized employes of the
Wheeling and Lake Erie Railroad was held
last night ihat continued until after mid
night. The object of the meeting was to en
able the four Brotherhoods to induce the A.
R. IT. men to reconsider their strike reso
lutions, if possible. Superintendent Stout
was present by invitation.
None of the A. R. U. people wanted to
strike, but they were compelled to go out,
they said, or give up their charter. The
brotherhoods endeavored to persuade them
to renounce their allegiance to Debs last
night. In -this they failed, although tho A.
R. IT. men agreed to telegraph Debs stating
their unwillingness to strike and asking to
have it declared off.
As yet no reply has been received. If they
persist in remaining out they will be re
garded as having discharged themselves and
new men will be employed.

New York, July 10, 1894.—Mortimer
O’Connell, President of the Brotherhood of
Surface Railway Employes, of this city,
said today in regard to the Federation of
Labor’s influence in thi3 city, and
especially among surface railway em
Sloyes:—“The Federation is power
iss, and I doubt if Gompers
could call out 5,000 men. The Federation's
strength is mainly in the garment workers,
and 90 per cent, of them have been out of
work for the past nine months. Then they
have the garment makers and a few bakers.
I especially wish to denounce the statement
that he can control tho entire railway men.
He has nothing to do with them.
“I believe that the strike is crumbling and
will never reach this city. Nothing but de
feat lies before it in any event. The only
remedy for tuese troubles is to pass a com
pulsory arbitration law.”
Not one-tenth of the street railroad men in
this city belong to the organization.

President Samuel Gompers and Secretary
Chris Evans of the American Federation of
Labor were busy this morning all the same,
preparing to leave for Chicago tonight to
attend the meeting Thursday of the Execu
tive Council for a junket.
“I have sent telegrams to the Executive
officers of the National ami Industrial
Unions.” Mr. Gompers said. “This morning
I have received replies from several of them
saying that they will meet the Executivo
Council of the American Federation
of Labor Thursday morning at the
Briggs House in Chicago. The invita
tion has also been extended to members of
brotherhood of railway organizations to
meet us and I am in receipt of one rospon e
positively favorable and of one other that
the matter is under consideration. I prefer
not to say which ones the replies wore from.”
Mr. Gompers said he thought President
Cleveland’s second proclamation would only
intensify the situation. “To say anything
further,” ho'said, “wouldbe merely a repe
tition of the arguments that have been
made over and over for a week past.”
Regarding the prospects of a general
strike Mr. Gompers was 03 non-committal as
ever. Until he arrives upon the ground he
would be unable to express an opinion of the
strike, of its probable outcome, or of the ac
tion which the American Federation of
Labor would take. He only repeated his
statement:—-“I hope for a peaceful and
honorable settlement.”
They had not made railroad arrangements
and were unable to say which line they

would go over, but they thought they would
take the New York Central, as that road
does not run Pullman sleepers. The party
will consist of Samuel Gompers, Chris Evans
and John IS. Lennon. They will be joined
on the way by VVilliam H. Mai den, the
Boston member of the Executive Council.
With the exception of Detroit, Han Fran
cisco and the far Northwest, the mails for the
past twenty-four horn's nave arrived here
about on time as far as domestic letters are
concerned. The mall from Asiatic coun
tries, duo here via Han Francisco, however,
have been delayed, and are not expected to
arrive in this city until the 18th inst. at the
earliest. , _
The following telegram from Postmaster
Backus of ban Francisco was received here
this morning by Postmaster Dayton:
Malls bv steamship Peru, also malls by steamship

lulu. 29. all despatches hence Sth lost., by steamship
via. Portland, Seattle and Great Northern Railway.
Superintendent Morgan told a United
Press reporter this morning that it was al
most impossible to estimate the length of
time it would take the mail steamship to go
from Han Francisco to Portland, but if the
strikers did not interfere the Asiatic mails
and mails from Australia would roach here
ou the c ay above mentioned.
The strikes are already beginning to make
themselves felt beyond the shores of this
country. The blockaded traffic is affecting
the transatlantic freight business. As yet
the effect is but slight, but al! the agents
realize that if the strikes are not soon stop
ped there will be a practical cessation ot
freight business as far as provisions and
cattle are concerned.
The White Btar Line does perhaps the
largest transatlantic freight business m
these two departments. The freight steam
ship which went out last week earned but
little more than two-thirds of her usual
cargo. The usual shipment of cattle amounts
to about seven hundred head. Last week less
ri,nn flua hnnHrr.d head weilfc out. I he
steamships of the line carry at this j
season of the year about 500 tons of provis
ions. Last week's shipment amounted to less
than 400 tone. The Bovic sails today and
the situation is about the same with her. ohe
carries almost no dressed beef and less than
two-thirds of her usual cargo ot cattle and
provisions. , . ,, . ,
There are plenty of cattle in the market,
but the exporters are unable to get hold of
them Owing to the non-arrival ot any
dressed beef from Chicago, the local branch
es of the packing houses are buying up all
the live stock which comes into the city, and
slaughtering them here in order to keep their
houses full. ,, _
The freight busiuess ou the Hamburg
‘Vmerican Pucket Line was not affected to
any extent last week. The western consign
ments w ere under way before the railroads
were so fully tied up. This week, however,
the company fears that it will be able to
send out scarcely any freight from the west.
The North German Lloyd Steamship Com
pany does not feel the effects of the strike so
severely. They carry nothing from Chi
cago except refined lard, and the exporta
tion of that commodity is at this season of
tho year always somewhat light.
They have leeeived their flour from
Minneapolis and their provisions from Kan
sas City, as usual. Part ot their shipments
of refined lard they have also succeeded in
getting through. The other steamship com
panies are affected in about the same way.
The agents are not apprehensive, however,
for they regard the backbone of the strike
as already broken, and they believe that it
will not be long before freight traffic will
have resumed its normal condition.

New York, July 10, 1894.—Governor and
Mrs. Roswell P. Flower, who arrived -.t the
Windsor Hotel from Albany last night,

Island. When seen by a reporter the Gov
ernor had a number of morning papers in
his hand, but had not looked at them yet.
“What’s the news about the strike?” the
Governor asked. «
The reporter gave a hasty review of the
situation, and upon hearing that the calling
out of the unions in Buffalo had been de
ferred, Governor Flower uttered an ejacula
tion of satisfaction. Immediately after
wards he said:—“I have nothing to say that
the public does not already know.”
“Won't vou sav what your line of action
will be if the strike spreads to tms state'"
“It is impossible for me to anticipate the
course of events, which alone would guide
my actions.”
“But could you not outline your policy in
a general way!”
“As fUT as a strike is concerned my policy
would be one of non-intervention. They can
strike as much as they like without having
anything to fear from me. But if there
should be any disorder that would be differ
ent.” And the Governor shrugged his shoul
“What would lie your policy then!” in
quired the reporter.
“My policy toward rioting/’ replied Gov
ernor Flower, speaking slowly and with
great emphasis, “is perfectly well known.”
“Then it is fair to assume that you would
not, as Governor Altgeld of Illinois lias
done, object to the interference of United
States troops to presorve order in the Ktato

“Come, come, young man! I can’t discuss

mayor Warner Favors Arbitration on
General Principles—Trains on Time,
It was reported upon good authority this
morning that a number of labor organiza
tions throughout the city had met last night
and decided to send financial assistance to
the Western strikers. There appeal’s to be
! no inclination on the part of local engineers,
firemen, conductors, trainmen or yard men
to take any part in the struggle of the A. R.
U. The railroad employes here are satisfied
to retain their positions. The defeat suffered
by the Lohign Valley Railroad men in their
last strike has had a tendency to impress
upon the minds of the employes of other
roads that to strike, when there are so many
idle men about, can result in but one way.
At the railroads where Pullman cars are
used in making up trains, everything ap
peared to be harmonious this morning. The
Pennsylvania Railroad trains from the
West arrived and departed on time. Two
Chicago trains over the Erie were ubout an
hour late, but it was not due to the strike.
Travel all over the roads is picking up, and
the officials feel assured that timid travel

dictated the following message to Mayor
Yes. I am in favor of arbitration, but all parties
must respect laws while arbitration is in progress.
This morning the Mayor received a second
message from Mayor Pingree. It was as

submission of an amendment to the Com titution, if
necessary, under which laws may be enacted for

Mayor Wanser has not as yet answered
this. Chief Murphy has issued orders to

Stearns Kills His Seeond Boy
Today With a Newark Car.
Joseph Bayoski, four years of age, of No.
110 Essex street, was struck by a Newark
line trolley car this afternoon at half-past
one o’clock on Grand street near Washing
ton. His head was crushed and his left leg
broken in two- placed. He also sustained
internal injuries, which according to l)r.
Rector will result fatally.
The motorman, Henry C. Stearns of No.
677 Ferry street, Newark, was arrested and
charged with atrocious assault.
The boy was with a number of playmates
frolicking near the parks, when the Newark
car, crowded with people, came bowling
down from Warren street. He attempted to
run across the tracks, and the next instant
was under the wheels.
The car was stopped as quickly as possible
ami the mangled body of the boy carried in
fo nr Rfiptor’s office.
An ambulance was summoned and ho
was removed iu all haste to the City Hos
Many of the passengers oa the car were
so horrified at the sight that they left the
car and walked to the ferry.
Motorman Stear ns has been particularly
unfortunate during the past two vvqeks. Two
weeks ago today a car in his charge struck
and almost instantly killed an Italian boy on
Commerce street, Newark. The boy, when
killed, had his father’? dinner jiail on his
arm and was on his way to the head of Com
merce street, w here he was at work.
Stearns will be arraigned before Justice
Potts tomorrow morning for a hearing.

New York, July 10, 1494.—The borings
made recently in the North River by order
of the New York and New Jersey Bridge
Company were considered this morning by
the eommissiqn of engineers appointed by
President Cleveland to determine upon the
best methods of extending a span of not less
than '.',000 feet in accordance with the act
under which the work of the company is to
be carried on. The full commission was
present, consisting of Major C. W. Ray

Washington, July 10, 1804.—The Demo
cratic members of the Conference Committee
on the Tariff bill were in session yesterday
for six hours, convening at 12:30 and ad
journing at 0:30. The injunction of secrecy
was evidently placed upon the conferrees,for
it was absolutely impossible to get a state
ment as to what had been done or what
progress, if any, had been made. A promi
nent member of the conference on the part
of the Senate, however, cautiously ob
served that no attempt had been made to
get at results, as the day was spent in a pre
liminary discussion on the bill in general.
The determination was reached on the oart
of the democrats to sit daily and during long
hours in order to arrange their differences
at as early a day as possible. They hope to
effect this so that, the republican members
can be called In the latter part of this
Many of the unimportant amend meets
made by the Senate was agreed to iu the
course of the day, and it is thought probable
all of these will be out of the way at the
end of today’s session.
It Is understood that the sugar schedule
was touched upon but briefly, as it was
found that that would be a subject which,
if taken up now, would interfere with pro
gress iu other ports of the bill.

Unable to Hold Her Own With

By Cable to the United Press.
Glasgow, July 10, 1804.—The Britannia
and Vigilant started from Hunter’s Quay
this morning in a race over the Clyde course
for the Clyde Corinthian Yacht Club’s Club,
valued at £60. The weather was cloudy and
disagreeable, and the almost total absence oi
wind made it seem certain that today’s con
test would be another drifting match. The
Vigilant had been fitted during the night
with a new mainsail. Both boats hung n«ai
the line ready for the start, but they reach
ed the mark too soon and had to put about.
The Britannia crossed the line at 10:34, and
the Vigilant at UCidW,'. The Britannia had
the weather and was four lengths ahead.
The wind f reshened a little from the south
at 10:55, when the tacks were broken.
The Britannia was ten lengths ahead at
Cloch Light. Loth boats had their jib top
sails set. Prom Cloch Light it was a dead

Ascog was uneventful. The Britannia
turned the Ascog mark at 13:31.13 and the
Vigilant at 13:35.19.
Beating down to Skelmorlie the Britannia
maintained her lead. Botu yachts took a
Ion" leg across, but broke it for the moment,
the vigilant attempting to get the weather.
She failed in the attempt, however, and the
Britannia retained her position. Tlie Vigi

morlie. Both hosts failed to reach th3
mark and were compelled to make 4 small
leg to letch it The Britannia ruuuded
Skelmorlie at 11:58:55, and the Vigilant at
After rounding Ascog it was a run before
the wind. Both had their spinnakers port
ed. and the Vigilant was creeping up on the
Britannia. The Vigilaut’s balloon sail was
drawing badly, but she was still threatening
to pass her British rival. The Vigilant
gained still further on the Britannia, and at
Innellan, which was reached at 1:35, the
American boat went in front.
The yachts finished the first round as fol
lows:—Britannia. 2.30-35; Vigilant, 2.31.38.
The Vigilant’s advantage was of short
duration. Bbe led,for about two miles,when
the Britannia weathered her, and the breeze
freshening, ran past her off Cioch Voint.
Both boats set their spinnakers and made the
run to Kilcreggau mark.
Both yachts fetched Ascog with every
inch of cauvass drawing, the time at thi*
point being:—Britannia, 4.17.55; Vigilant,
The wind being fresher the yachts started
at a greater rate of speed for the second
round than they did for the first. Both
worked their way down the Xnverskip shore
by ’ small legs,, the Britannia invariably
holding the weather. They rounded Skel
moriie as follows:—Britannia, -3:50:40;
Vigilant, 3:52:00.
The Britannia wins by about 3 minutes.
