CUP RETAINED BY AMERICA Sir Thomas' Efforts to Cap ture the Mug Result in Failure. THE RELIANCE EASILY DISTAN- CES HER OPPONENT. Runs Away From Shamrock in the Third and Final Contest. New York, Sept. 5.The Reliance, the American cup defender, yesterday won the third and final race and the series for that famous sea trophy, the America's cup. In a dense tog which prevented vision beyond 200 yards she finished the race at 5:30:02 amid the acclamations of the as sembled fleet. Shamrock III., after running more than an hour in the fog missed the finish line, passed by it and then returned to it from the opposite direction. As Reliance was then being towed through the fleet the yacht's ensign fluttered through her truck and spreaders in celebration of 'the victory. Shamrock III. did not cross the finish line. As often said of the race since America won the trophy, there was no second. The re sult was achieved only after Four Futile Attempts to sail off the final'race and after the outcome had been admitted even oy Sir Thomas Lipton to be a foregone conclusion. Yesterday's was the eighth attempt to sail a race. After one fluke Reliance won the two follow ing races, one by seven minutes and three seconds, and the other by one minutes and nineteen seconds, A week ago yesterday the first at tempt to sail the third race failed, and attempts have been mu.de every day this week. On these occasions Reli ance led Shamrock to the finish line by two miles, but failed to., reach it before the expiration of the time limit, of five and a half hours. Yes terday's victory means that the cup is destined to Remain in America until England is able to produce a genius equal to Herreshoff in yacht designing. Rarely, if ever, has there been a more spectacular finish than Reliance's yesterday. After racing for more than an hour at terrific speed through a blinding fog, Reliance burst through the wall of mist upon the vision of the spectators of the fleet assembled at the finish line, and heel ing under a great bellying balloon jib topsail until her lee rail was awash", flew across the finish line almost be fore the spectators could determine for a certainty that it was she. Once more the Yankee boat had added to the long string of victories in contests for the honored old silver trophy that carried with it the blue ribbon of the sea. A fleet of less that thirty vessels went down to the familiar waters of the international course to witness this fifth effort of Reliance to cover the course of thirty miles within the time limit. Outgeneraled by Barr. The duel between the skippers be gan at the sound of the preparatory gun and continued during a series of brilliant maneuvers in which Capt. Barr again proved his splendid sea manship, outgeneraling Capt. WrirTge until the boats went across the line. The boats were time at the turn as follows: Reliance, 3:30:35 Shamrock llr 2:41:45. The Reliance had'gained 11 min utes and 3 Seconds in the thresh to windward. The official time in the Shamrock Reliance race is as follows: Start. Finish. Reliance 1:01:56 5:30.02 Shamrock III.. 1:02:00 Did not finish. Better Boat Won, Says Lipton. When the Erin kad discharged her passengers last night and the re echo of their cheers had died away. Sir Thomas Lipton said: "Two weeks ago I was hopeful last week I knew I was doomed to de feat, and was disappointed, but to day I am almost glad in my own de feat, this America has been such a thoroughly generous victor. I want again to thank the American people for their generosity to me in de- feat." Regarding the defeat of ShamrocK III. he simply said: "I don't care to discuss it any more. The American boat was the better that is all." A want ad in the Daily Pioneer is a winner. Try one THE DAILY Lumber Offices May and Not Be Removed to Bemidji. May The Crookston Ti mes has the following- to say on the proposed removal of the general offices of the Crookston Lumber company from Crookston to Bemidji: "Manager Richards of the Crookston Lumber company, when interviewed by a Times man yesterday stated that there was a probability of the removal of the general offices to Bemidji, but that nothing definite had as yet been decided on. The change, if made, would be for business and in order to Lave the offices as near the timber supply as pos sible. The removal has been considered for some time by the officials of the company, and upon his next visit to this city Presi dent Shevlin will decide the mat ter. The removal of the offices would mean a considerable loss to Crookston as several families who now live here would move to Bemidji. It is to be hoped that President Shevlin will find it to the best interests of the com pany to leave the offices here. There ere advantages both for and against the removal, and a meeting of the Commercial Union will be called to consider the mat ter and plan some way of keep ing the management of the Crookston Lumber company in this city." Climbing Mountains. Is a fascinating and invigor ating pastime. It developes not the body only, but the mind. The Alpine Peaks of Switzerland have their counterpart in our own country, in the Sierras, the Cas cades, and parts of the Rockies. The greatest glacial peak of the United States is Mt. Ranier in Washington, more than 15,500 feet high. Tins magnificent mountain has 15 or more giant glaciers creeping down its sides and discharging their glacial de tritus into the Columbia river or Puget Sound. A climb to the summit of this is a mountaineering feat worthy of any mountaineer. For 25 centf Chas. S. Pee, Gen'l Passenger Agent of the Northern Pacific railway, St. Paul, Minn.will send to any address an illustarted booklet called "Climbing Mt. Ra nier" describing a climb over gla ciers to the top of the moun tain. Subscribe for The Pioneer.
