Special to ltvtKiNii llKitAt.i. New York, Oct. 7. It la estimated that nearly a hundred thousand people went 'down to the sea In ships" this morning tn witness tlni great In ternatloual race Tor the America's cup between the. yachts Columbia and Shamrock. So largo an audience has probably never Iwon seen collected for any purpose on the open tea, and probably the largest licet of transport which ever sailed out of Nnw York harbor on such a tuition was pressed Into service Contrary to general oxpoctationa, tbe two flukes lu the races have increased, instead of diminishing, inierost in tbe races and tbe backers and admirers of the respective yachts appear to be even more enthusiastic over the races than they were the first day. This is undoubtedly iltie to the first two trials dem onstrating that the yachts arc as evenly matched as two vessels of the kind can bo. The day was an ideal one for the race and the weather was remarkably clear. When the yachts and fleet of excursion boats assembled at the rendezvous about the Sandy Hook lightship the wind waa blowing at the rata of twenty miles an hour and all indica tions pointed to an oxciting and successful race. The course announced for tho race was fifteen miles leeward and return. Capt. IUrr displayed Improvement in tbe handling of the Columbia to-day and ho crossed tho starting lino first, at 11:20:1. The Shamrock followed at 11:21:10, the Columbia getting oyer 1 mlnuto and 15 seconds ahead. At 11:45 the wind had decreased to eight knots. The Columbia maintained a good lead and slowly increased it until noon, when she was about an eighth of a mile to the good, but tho wind was decreasing. As la tho preceding races, the speed of the Columbia decreased with the wind and the Shamrock was gaining in proportion. Tbe Shamrock slowly overhauled her competitor and passed her at 12:30. At 1 o'clock the Shamrock was still holding her lead and she had tho best of the wind. During this part of the rice the wind con tinued to decrease, until at 1:25 it had fallen from the highly encouraging speed of twenty miles an hour to but three knots. This cast a gloom over tho spirits of the great host of spectators and they commenced to lose hope that tho yachts would bo able to reach tbe finish lino within the time limit, which is five hours and a half for this course Should a third fluke result it will bo exceedingly unfortuuate. as to-day was the date fixed originally for tho third and last race of the series nnd those directly interested in tho yachts are becoming impatient and discouraged. Each day a race is postponed adds enormously to tbe expenses of the respective yacht owners and backers, as it adds so many more days to tho time the captains, experts, crews and others must bo kept in commission, and this amounts to uo small item each day. Besides this. banquets, rccoptlous and supplemental spins on tbe sea are to follow tho regular races, and those concerned in these are an xious to have them over aud done with. It Is not unlikelv that somo of thn events enn. templated may bo dispensed with on account of the tedious delays occasioned by the flukes, At 1:35 tbe Columbia bad pulled herself to- gither and was gaining ground. The Sham rock was but one minuto In the lead at this hour. Eleven minutes later, 1:4(1, the yachts turned the outer stako boat with the Sham rock a leuth, or two, in the lead, a closo margin. The Columbia was still increasing her speed, and a miuute later, 1:17, the yachts were on even terms, with the Col umbia gaining steadily. Duriug the succeeding half hour the posi tions held by the yachts were such as would have made the prettiest race ever seen be. tween similar vessels with a correspondingly favorable wind. It is nip and tuck, the Shamrock being slightly In the lead at 2:20, At 3:10 tbe yachts wero six miles from the finish and tho clmncos for a successful finish were against them, although some experts figured that they- had a cbanco to get in about seven or eight minutes before the expiration of tho time limit. At 3:30 tho Columbia bad again securod the lead. She was assisted in this by some draw back tho Shamrock met with, by which that vessel lost 22 seconds. The cause is not knowu.

Peorln, Ills., Oct. 7. A good part of the population of Peoria, the second tlty of Illinois, yesterday took pnrt In in elaborate demonstration to welcome to tneir city the president of the Uni ted States. The great event of the day was the tinrelllnt of a beautiful monu ment erected by Peoria's citizens as a memorial to the soldiers of the rebel lion, living and dead. The president and members of the party first review ed a long procetolon of militia, vet erans of the war, aud returned volun teers of the Spanish war. After his review of the parade tho president took his seat facing the veil ed monument, by the side of Hou. Martin Kingman, chairman of the exorcises. The monument was unveil ed by Mrs. 3. A. Klnsey, who has been chairman of the monument committee since Its Inception In 18S3. The formal exercises of dedication wero then pro ceeded with. Ths) monument was pre sented to the City and county ot Peoria by Mrs. Lucie Ii. Tyng, and ac cepted on behalf Of the county by John C. Klnpbury, chairman of the board of supervisors, and on behalf of the city by Hcury w. Lunch, mayor of Peoria, An address was given by Mr. King man, followed by tho president, who dedicated the monument In a formal address, The president said In part: "This monument awakens sacred memories, fellow citizens, and that Is Its purpose. It was erected by these patriotic woman, that It might for all time porpetunte a glorious page of American history. It tells the whole story of the wnr, the siege, the march, tlio bivouac, the suffering, sacrifices of the brave jnen vho from 'Gl to 'G5 upheld the fluK. I like this symbol that I face today the defense of tho flag. That is what we do whenever and wherever that flag Is assailed. "You are proud of tho monument. You should be proud of the demon stration today which led to Its un veiling. Six thousand children from the schools marching with the flog of stars In their hands and with the love of country In tholr hearts. I could not but thinlr as I looked upon that Inspiring pu.asl(m--llmt my country was safe. Ood bless the schools of America. God bless the patriotic wo men of the United States and the pa triotic band that projected and car ried this monument to a successful conclusion." The president nnd members of his cabinet delivered addresses during yes terday at Quincy, Macomb, Uushnell fincl Canton. At Quincy the president was most enthusiastically received at the Soldiers' Homo. The speech of Attorney General Griggs at Quincy was especially significant as emphaz Ing the Philippines policy of tho ad ministration. Me said: "The secretary of tho Interior is making a new map of the United States of America, and he Is embar rassed to find room to place not only tho states, but these vast new Island possessions that have become ours. And what Is their preseut condition? What do these school children learn about these islands that have come to l.s? Th3V will be told by tholr teachers that within a year there has been adr (led o our domain a vast archipelago. In the Pacific ocean, peopled with flight or ten millions of souls, who speak more than a score of different languages, who compose, more than two -score of different discordant and disconnected tribes. They will he told that for more than three hundred years these Islands, rich In natural possessions, fertile In soil, havo been governed by Spanish autnority, and that down to the end of this nineteenth century of civilization and progress they have attained not much more In telligence, not much more civilization, not much more wealth, and no more liberty than they had attained In those days when the great Spanish galleons carried home annually from these isl ands their wealth of gold and silver to enrich the treasury of King Philip, "They will be told that today the United States of America prossesses by solemn treaty, signed and ratified by Spain, accepted and approved by the senate nnd the congress of the United States and Its president, pos sesses tho only lawful sovereignty and authority over these (slands, a sover eignty and authority recognized and not disputed by any nation or people on the face of the earth. They will be told that lu one of these Islands, ono ot these numerous tribes has raised an army of Insurrection against the American flag, that thoy, while our soldiers were In peaceful possession of Manila, attempted to rise and mur der them and the American repre sentatives there, that thoy fired on the American flag, that they defied its au thority, and that they havo attempted by murder, by conflagration and by arms to drive the lawful authority of the United States from the Island ot Luzon. They will be told, these chil dren of yours, that these men who have attempted this comprise not one-tenth per cent of the people of these islands, and the answer that is to be made to ROt4L ArsoluteevIpure Mokes the food more OYAt eticwia tnoe who nK wnat we are to do about It Is the plain and simple answer that was given In 1861 - If any man at tempts to haul down the Ainerlrau flag, shoot him on the spot.' "You believe, and I lielleve. It a wise purpose of Providence which, after 3(h) years of despotism and Ignorance, has opened the door of these Islands to American Intelligence, to American clvlllr.atlon, to American progress, to Amen, an prosperity. The full tide of presjierlty flows through this land, majestically and unruffled as this great river Hows by your city. We want a flow of progress and Intelligence ol liberty and civilisation' to flow Into these Philippine Islands and over them and over all, to float now juid forever, the flag of the American Union."

PUjVIrPfl TORTURED! Ills Hand HelJ Fast For Almost an Hour. IT WAS CAUGHT IN THE PUMP ! A Boy's Hand Mangled Between Bumpers of Oars A Mine Workman Straek Under the Chla by a Lever UseJ In Lifting a Cur. John Brown, of 419 West Coal street, a pumpman employed at the Kohinoer colliery, had a distressing experience while engoajed lu cleaning a pump in tbe mines jertenlay. Greaee aud dirt naturally aoruiunlate in chambers of the pumps and it Is neceMry for the men in charge to remove tbe obstruc tion with their hands, Brown paesed bla left arm through one of the chambers and was working the dirt and greaee from tbe rear end of the working bar when tbe pole sneaked back aud pinned his band in tbe chamber. The man waa a helpleaa victim. There was no one near him and he waa powerless to give tbe pole a reverie move ment so that he might release bis hand. The pain caused by the pressure upon the baud and wrist was excruciating and Bruwn cried out in agony for help, but none camo until te waa held in hia painful poaition for fully three-quarters of an hour. Stepbon Cbarles, the man employed at tbe top of the slope, heard Browu's criea for help through a return way leading from the pump muse to the top, but mistook tbe direction whence they came aud went to the lift below that on which Brown works, supposing a river below was vailing for help. Charles went to several places before he reached Brown, who was much exhausted when help finally came. The top man released Brown s hand by re moving tbe back cap of tbe pump and push ing the pole back with n bir. When released Browu's wrist aud band were flattened, but t was gratifyiug to learn that uono of the bones were broken. The baud and arm are ery badly swollen and discolored. Dr. M. S.
