Washington, Sept. 3.—Tiie abstracts
from the United States argument in
the Alaskan houndary dispute were
made public today. They go over the
ground minutely and adds but little
history, showing that the controversy
nearly resulted in war. The docu
ment ' declares "British commission
ers" contention that Canada's claim
to territories at the head of l.ynn
canal was at that time well known to
the United States, is absolutely
"false. - ' and continuing says: "This
i's a gratituous assertion. There is
ao proof to sustain it. It has been
said that the Canadian government
had instructed the British vessels to
disregard these regulations. If they
had done so there would have been
grave danger of a serious collision.
There undoubtedly would nave been
a collision just as certainly as if they
had been instructed to disregard th*
regulations at the port cd' New York."

Highlands, Sept. 3. —After waiting
■intil almost the last minute granted
>y the rah-.-, the Reliance and the
Shamrock started today in a race that
promises to be another fluke. The
racers went to the starting line at the
usual hour, hut the wi id was only
blowing two knots. As the day wore
on, the wind Increased, !>et that, too,
was very slowly. Shortly before, how
ever, it had taken a velocity of about
six knots an hour and the yachta hur
riedly made away on the thrash of
15* mires to the windward and return.
The Reliance crossed the line at
1:01 and the Shamrock 20 seconds
later. This is unofficial. The Re
lianc< held her lead, and Is on;point-
Ing the Shamrock.
The maze hung over the boats when
the starling i.un was fired. The offl
i ity time of the star! was: Reliance,
1:01:56; Shamrock, 1:02:00. The
wind freshened although it is a bit
unsteady. The Reliance continued to
draw away from the Shamrock and
half an boui after the start, she was
nearly an eighth of a mile in the lead.
The Reliance managed to sail, not to
the windward, bnt she fore reached
on the Englishmen and as on pre
vious races, she held her lo ad higher
and slipped along faster than the
challenger. At 1 tbe wind was blow
ing eighl knots and. ii it holds out

The Reliance turned the outer mark
at 3:01 and the Shamrock did the
same two minutes lat< r.
3:so—The Reliance is new flying
borne with all her sails set, and is
about a mile and a hah' in the lead.
2:34 The Reliance is still increas
ing her lead.
4.o4—The Reliance is still out foot
ing the Shamrock and is nearly two
miles in the lead. She will finish he
fore the expiration of the time limit
4 : 26—The Reliance hi spinning
along ar a goo' clip, and is about
seven miles from the finish.
4:30—1f the wind holds up the Re
liance should finish in an hour.
5.05 The Reliance is two miles
from the finish and it is now doubtful
if she can finish in time on account
of the dense fog.
The Reliance crossed the line at
s:2S:3<>. This is unofficial.
