WAS ONLY 4 On Corrected Time Reliance Was Only 1 Minute and 30 Seconds in Lead The Highlands, off Navesluk, N. J., Aug. 25. The race for the'Aiueriea's enp between the Reliance and Shamrock III was a contest In moderate airs, calculated to show the Britisher at her best. To day's race was over a triangular course, ten miles to a leg, giving the yachts a turn to windward and two reaches. Sir Thom as Lipton, as he noted the weather condi tions this morning, said: "I could desire nothing better, and If the Shamrock loses today's race, I shall be very much disappointed." At 9 a. tn. both yachts started for the Lightship. The Reliance reached the lightship at 10.0 and the wind developed a tendency to haul to southward. It was still blowing eight to nine knots. The Shamrock be fore reaching the Lightship, got out her biggest club topsail. It seemed larger than the Jackyarder carried by the Reli ance. Capt. Barr also set his largest clubtop- sail and at 10 45 the preparatory gun was fired. The course today was sjuih by east 10 miles, a broad reach of 10 miles northeast aid a reach home 10 miles west by north west. . The start was made as follows: Reliance . . . 1 1.00-36 Shamrock . . 11.02.00 The Shamrock crossed ten seconds after the handicap gun had been fired. , The Shamrock went over on her starboard tack as did the Reliance, but almost iru- mediately Capt. Wiinge threw the SSham- rock about to port and Capt. Barr follow ed, both yachts heading In for Seabright. The Reliance seemed to be pointing high er and increasing her lead almost at the start. The Reliance was over a minute and a half In the lead at 11.23. A gray-black southeaster was coming tn which made it a'most impossible for the excursion fleet to the yachts because of the dense mist. The wind at that hour was seven knots. The Reliance was still gaining at 11.45. The Reliance tacked to starboard and the Shamrock followed a minute later, after crossirg Reliance's wake. At 12 o'clock it seemed as if the Shamrock was point ing higher and doing better work than the defender Reliance. At 12.15 the Shamrock had been making a steady gain on the Reliance for a half hour and when the two yacats were with in two miles of the first mark the Reliance had only a slight lead The haze was so thick it was almost im possible to tell how the two yachts round W' .

BEHIND ed th first mark, but an observer at Long Branch caught them as follows: Reliance, 12.24.55 Shamrock, 12.25.51 At 1.20 the haze was still thick off shore and the yachts baa been invisible since 12.20. At 1.22 a wireless - despatch here puts the Reliance nearly three quarters of a mile ahead. A wireless despatch received here at 1.33 says the Reliance turned the Second stake at 1,25 and the Shamrock at 1.29. SO. The finish was as follows: Reliance, 2.15.25 Shamrock, 2.20.10 On corrected time the,Reliance won by 1 minute and 30 seconds, unofficial. WEST T0PSHAM. Fred Bagley was in Bradford Thursday. Dr. J. A.
