SAILING OF MAYFLOWER WAS COMMEMORATED Sandy Hook, N. .T.. July 24. Reso lute and Shamrock IV to-day made ready for final battle for the America's nip in a series of rain squalls which followed a furious electrical storm that thundered during the night. The storm passed awny shortly after dawn leaving an caercast sky and a steady wind from the nouth that kicke.d up a sousing sea. Cjoud of clcne vapor came inland from the ocean, but weather sharps said it would clear by noon. A series of rain squalls followed in the wake of the storm. . The wind hauled into the southwest shortly aft er 8 o'clock and the sun niada a brave flTort to pierce the clouds. The breese was about 12 knots in strength. To-dav's deciding: contest between Sir Thomas Lipton's 70-foot challen ger Shamrock IV and the American de fender Resolute is set for a 30-miIe windward and leeward course. The ad vantage for the final struggle lies with the American boat, which in all the previous races liks. shown decided su periority over the rliaTHiger in : a thrash to windward. The Englishmen believe they have an equal chance with the Americans to win the cup, but they admit that the Herreshoff sloop is ft wizard going into the wind. The sailing skill of Charles Francis -Adams. 2d, skipper of the Res olute, also has provoked the decided ad miration of the sailors of the Sham rock, who have come to regard him with a sailor's superstition as a su perman of the. sea. Weather- conditions which would make a start impossible or a falling mind resulting in lanure to nmsn inr race within the six hour time limit were the only factors that could pre vent a final decision to-day. Piping Breeze of 18 Knots. , When the sloops began making sail, the wind had piped out of the south west to 18 knots. Treated waves beat upon the shore and a five-masted bar Vpntin wallowed in the sea off the AmhrnsK channel lichtship, where the start was to be made. It was just such H v n a real sailornian loves to weigh anchor and head seaward, carry ing everv sail his shin will bear. Resolute was the first to make sail. Head sails were sent up in stops and Jir ma.insail was snapping (in tfie itrnnir breeze some time before the crew of Shamrock began tailing on tlmir mainsail. The challenger prepared for battle with a brand-new nainsau. ner mmi ormen snapped it up in true seaman lit fuahion. . Spectator craft began gathering early to-day for the yachting classic, jiut first to glimpse the racing sloops a piant liner inward bound. She was 'the Aquitania and her passen vert lined the rails of their great mov inff orandstand to wath the famous boats make ready for their marine bat tie. The first thing the ocean travelers observed was Captain William I Bur ton directing hi crew to take a reef in the challengpra mainsail. He evident lv expected wind anient v. Resolute, however, which kept her ton sail un in yesterday's squail when Shamrock lowered hers,' to-day carried her biir spread of canvas without reef. Shamrock broke out her jib t 10:10 and dropping ber moorings stood a war to sea. - The wind caught her as she wore ship and ehe heeled over so that be Ice rail was awash, witn only mainsail and jib, Shamrock scooted itit for Sandy Hook spit like a ghost ia the piping breexe.

Pageant Inaugurated Four Days' Cele bration at Southampton, England. Southampton, England, July 24. Scenes attending the departure 300 years ago of that little band of adven turers known to history as the Pilgrim fathers were re-enacted to-day .in a pageant inaugurating a four days' cele bration of the tercentenary of the sail ing of the Mayflower. The pageant was preceded by a luncheon, given by the lord mayor.

By staging to-day's' pageant, which is entitled "John Alden's Choice," at the ancient quay-aide, near the .west gate through which the Pilgrim left because no roadway existed and garbing the per' formers in puritanical dress, an at tempt was made to have the reproduc tion as historically faithful as possible. The gate has remained through the in tervening centuries as a veritable mon ument to the Pilgrim voyagers. Outstanding events of American his tory, including the Boston tea party, Lincoln making h"v address at Gettys burg and American intervention in the recent World Mar, were depicted in the pageant, which will be repeated on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday..

The order for a nation-wide referendum by railway em ployes on the wage award of the feder al labor board was completed to-day, wiTh a strong plea against a strike, at a meeting of the executives of the railroad brotherhoods-', before they departed. "The labor board," the order states, is the highest court of appeal in this controversy. J higher tribunal ' is created by the transportation act, and Is decision must either be accepted or rejected without further negotiation. "Although the award was much less than the employes should have been awarded, must less than they were en- tilted to; and although they are, and have a right to be, disappointed with the amount of increase in wages grant ed, more than S,i per cent of them have agreed through their representatives to accept the award. An appeal is made to the tederated shop crafts, "which constitute not more than 22 per cent of the total employes of the railroads," to vote in support of the action of the majority. The order recites the history of rail road wage disputes, beginning before the passage of the Adamson law. The Chicago yardmen's association represented by 5,000 members includ ing 70 delegates selected to represent the various "outlaw" .organizations of the country, voted unanimously to re ject the wage award because it "con tained no provision ot tne seniority rights" of the men who struck last April. "The strike could be settled in 4 hours if the roads would concede that one point, John Grunau, president of the association, said.

The Vermont state board of health hasV. just completed arrangements whereby the 1'nited States publio health service will begin work in sani tary district, No. 8, to demonstrate what can be accomplished along publio health lines in a district stalled with sdditional personnel. District, No. S, includes the following-towns: Barnard, Bethel, Braintree, Bridgew, ter. Cavendish, Granville, Hancock, Hartland, Ludlow. Norwich, rittsfield, Plymouth, Pomfret, Randolph, Read ing, Rochester, Royalton. Sharon. Sher burne, Stockbridge, Tunbridge, .Weath ersfield. West Windsor and Woodstock. Dr. C. W. Kidder of Woodstock is tl.a district health officer. For several years, the t'nited States public health service has been making demonstrations of whole-time health of ficer service in selected counties but the work has been done entirely in tho south and west. Nothing of the kind has previously ben attempted in New England or, in fact, any of the north ern states. The usual requirement for service of this kind is that the county or distric mise money to at let duplicate the amomt furnished by the federal g crnment This is usually a simple mat ter in the south, where the county form of government is in force, but it is quite snother thing in New Eng land under our town form of govern ment. tn inviatlon of the stat board ff health, Dr. L. L. Lunisden. assistaue surgeon general, in charge of niraj ssn itation, and Dr. W. K. Draper, field su pervisor, came to Vermont to study thn situation and to determine whether such a co-operative effort could be msde in this state.

They accepted the money already bein? paid' by the state as sufficient to cover the rei'iuirciiiriits of the. service and at once agreed to furnish f und for the ad ditional employe. Dr. Lutnrin. wh has charge of 'this work in the entile country, infoimed the state boaid of health that, to his Knowledge, no such, arrangenieni could lime been s-h; in anv other state.
