NEW YORK, Oct 3. Here is the official
log of the second race between Shamrock
II and Columbia for the America's cup.

cup contest, it was not only a royal strug

it was absolutely decisive as to the mer

It Was Shamrock Weather.
The wind today was' strong and true,
blowing around 18 knots from the north-,
west, and at every point of sailing ex
cept, perhaps, running before the wind,
in which the defender has already taken
the measure of the challenger, the -Yankee
sloop proved herself abler than the
Watson model. From the time she crossed
the starting line, 1 minute and 34 seconds
behind the mug-hunter, until she picked
up and passed the Irish boat three miles
after rounding the second mark, Colum
bia's pace was faster and she behaved
better than her rival. Reaching for the
first mark, 10 miles down the Long Island
shore, with the wind abaft The beam, she
gained 22 seconds. In the closer reach
for the second stake she gained 30 sec
onds, and in the thresh to windward on
the leg home she gained exactly two min
utes. Not, perhaps, as thrilling as the remark
able contest of last Saturday, today's race
was nevertheless stirring from start to
finish, and as a marine spectacle it could
hardly have been surpassed. It was an
Ideal October day at sea. There was just
enough frostlness to clear the atmosphere
and make the whole course visible from
shore. The breeze from the land piled
up little swells, but It was strong enough
to whip the froth out of the racing waves
until It whitened the face of the "sea. Its
claws caught the black smoke from the
stacks of the excursion fleet and the white
steam from their exhaust pipes and tore
them Into fragments. The ensigns and
flags with which the vessels were dressed
stood out like painted boards. The tall,
canvas-clouded racers heeled as the wind
smote them until their crew could with
difficulty keep their footing on the slip
pery decks, and the spurting spray was
tossed 30 feet high as they shook their
lean noses free from the foaming crests.
On the thresh to windward their decks
were a smother of white, and fountains
of foam circled away from their graceful
Victory From the Start.
The Yankee victory began with the
start, when the crafty Barr, by a system
of maneuvering, convinced his adversary
that he was trying to cros6 the line first.
Captain Sycamore promptly took the bait,
and, rushing his boat into position, sent
her away almost in the smoke of the
gun. Thereupon, Captain Barr, having ac
complished his purpose, tacked about
hack of the line and held off for more
than a minute. Then, with a flying start,
he went over just before the handicap
gun was fired. Some of the patriots were
disappointed juntll the experts explained
that there was no windward berth In a
reach where the boats could lay their
course straight for the mark, and that the
position astern, where Barr could keep his
eye on every move of his rival, was the
commanding one. He could watch Syca
more like a hawk, knowing that when the
gap between them Tvas closed the race
For the first 15 miles no human eye could
tell which ship, if either, was gaining, so
closely were they matched. But grad
ually It became apparent that Columbia
was overhauling the flying challenger.
Slowly, inch by inch and foot by foot,
the white boat gained. Both were going
at a terrific pace. The patrol fleet to
windward, steaming In a line ahead at in
tervals of 400 yards, had no difficulty in
keeping the excursion fleet clear of the
winged giants. Everything In the fleet
had to crowd on steam to keep the racers
in sight, and the gait at which they were
going left tugs and some of the steam
boats astern. The guide boat, which
started 15 minutes before the racers, shot
out at full speed, but she was hardly
able to log off the distance and get the
float overboard before the racers were
While going, out the big North German
Lloyd liner Deutschland, outward bound
to Cherbourg, went through the edge of
the excursion craft a half-mile to the
southward. The fleet seemed anchored, so
fast she went, looking like a big, swiftly
moving Summer hptel. In 20 minutes she
was hull down on the horizon.

mark a stream of signal flags was set
on the revenue cutter Gresham, the flag
ship of the patrol fleet, instructing them,
in the universal "language of the sea, to
change direction by the right flank." The
patrbl-boats swung around Vo the west
and charged dpwn upon, the excursion
fleet. The. latter, with bells "clanging in
the engine-rooms for more speed, turned
tail, and the whole, fleet rushed madly to
leeward of the last leg of the course.
Leaving the first mark on the starboard,
the racers gybed over the big booms and
went careenin for the second mark, Co
lumbia gaining slowly but surely. They
had bovered the first 10 miles in a little
over 50 minutes. When they swung around
the second stake, they took in their baby
jib topsails, -and hauled their wind for
the beat home. Both yachts heeled unt'il
their underbodies wero lifted high out of
the water, and their lee rails dipped a
foot into the -swirling billows.
The Rnn Home.
In five minutes after rounding the sec
ond mark it was apparent that Columbia
was foot'ing 'faster and pointing higher.
She went through Shamrock'-s lee like a
quarter-horse. The rush of the leviathans
on the final tack was magnificent. The
excursion boats, black with people from
gunwale to pilot-house, gathered about
the finish line in a great horseshoe. The
great white flyer came on well In the
lead. The patriotic skippers, with their
hands on their whistle cords, could hard
ly restrain themselves. As she swept
across the finish the din was soul-destroying.
Whistles split the air, and steam
sirens wailed, drowning the crash of the
bands and the cheers of the people. The
concert of sound was terrific. Until after
the gallant Shamrock, .beaten, but not
disgraced, crossed 1 minute and 18 seconds
later, wiuatles and sirens were kept going.
When they died away, the bands could be
heard playing "Columbia, the Gem of the
Ocean," "Yankee Doodle" and other patri
The steam yacht Corsair was the first
to signalize the American victory by set
ting the starry banner at her masthead.
By this time all the skippers had had
ample time to ransack their lockers, and
within a minute afterward every vessel in
the fleet was alive with American flags.
Sir Thomas Lipton, on the Erin, did not
approach within half a mile of the finish
line. He had seen his high hopes blasted
and probably did not care to be in at the
jubilation" over the defeat of his cham
pion. But, like a good, game sportsman,
after Columbia went over the line, he ran
the American flag up to the forepeak and
fired a salute In its honor. The rival
crews cheered each other as they were
towed home behind their tenders, es
corted by the whole excursion fleet. With
in a half-hour after the conclusion of the
race the committee boat, in accordance
with the agreement to race daily from
now on, set the signal for a race tomor
row. Admitted Columbia's Superiority.
Sir Thomas Lipton, although plainly de
pressed at the result of the race, stood
bravely at the gangway of the Erin and
bade cordial adieu, to his guests. He also
entertained a large number of yachtsmen
and ladles wlio visited the Erin after the
day's guests had departed. When asked
what he thought of' the race, he said:

DEFEATED IN YESTERDAY'S RACE.
SCHLEY SAILED AWAY
DID "NOT JOIN SQUADRON AT-BE-GINNING
Brooklyn Steamed 2000 Yards South-,
ward Before Joining in the
Pursuit of Cervera.
. WASHINGTON, Oct. 3. After Lieuten
ant Doyle, formerly . of Commodore
Schley's flagship, the Brooklyn, had com
pleted ' his testimony before the Schley
court of inquiry today, captain w. -,.
Dawson, of the Marine Corps, was called,
and was followed by Lieutenant Charles
W. Dyson, of the Bureau of Steam En
gineering of the Navy Department.
Captain Dawson was -signal officer on
board the battle-ship Indiana during the
'naval engagement off Santiago, and he
gave an account, from recollection, of the
behavior of" the various ships of the
"American fleet during the battle. He said
the Brooklyn had gone about 2000 yards
to the southward before joining, in the
pursuit of Cervera's ships. Lieutenant
Dyson was introduced to testify concern
ing the coal supply of the flying squad
ron, but the court adjourned for the" day
'before he could be heard to any extent.
When the court adjourned yesterday
Lieutenant Doyle was under exam
ination by Mr. Raynor, and the
court had just decided that tle
witness should not enter upon a discus
sion of the blockade of Santiago as It
was conducted after the arrival of Commander-in-Chief
Sampson. There was
much interest in Lieutenant Doyle's re
appearance, as It was expected that the
course of hla examination would develop
the further policy of Admiral Schley's
counsel in the case.
Court and counsel are beginning to show
the effects of the arduous duties Imposed
by the trial. Especially severe is it upon
the lawyers, both for Admiral Schley and
for the Navy Department Their duties
do not cease when the court adjourns in
the afternoon, but they extend far into
the night, and often they are found at
their labors before the breakfast hour
next morning. The trial presents new
points to all of them, and its various turns
bring to light fresh complications, which
have the effect of rendering it more try
ing than an ordinary case would be.
While all agree that it would be desir
able to have the case terminated at an
early date, they also agree that there Is
little prospect in that direction. Judge
Advocate Lemly probable will not call
mora than six or eight witnesses, but Mr.
Raynor has almost 40 names on his list.
JEIe says, however, that he does not expect
to examine more than half of this num
ber. Still he will not undertake to name
a day for the close of the trial within a
month from this time. He does not expect
to call Admiral Schley to the witness
stand for some time yet. Mr. Raynor
expects his client to make a complete re
view of the case, and it Is .probable that
the Admiral will be on the stand longer
than any other witness.
Captain Slgsbee was the first to appear
for the purpose of correcting his testi-
1 mony. when he began his statement it
was found that the official stenographer
was not present, and . Admiral Dewey's
private secretary, Lieutenant Crawford,
was called upon to perform the duty of
recorder of the proceedings.
.Captain Slgsbee stated that he had made
another search last night for the dispatch
from the Navy Department, under the
terms of which he sought to connect with
the flying squadron off Santiago, and
that he had found a private letter which
he had written at the time lit which he
had said: "Until we sighted the vessels
on the 29th, we knew nothing positive as
to their whereabouts."
Llentenat Doyle Resumed.
Lieutenant Doyle then resumed his tes
timony begun yesterday. He was exam
ined by Mr. Raynor. He continued, in re
ply to questions, to give a narrative of
the battle. Mr. Raynor asked whether'
the Brooklyn had engaged in any bom
bardments'durlngthe month of June, 1S93,
but Judge-Advocate Lemly and Mr. Hanna
objected on. the ground that the-question
was similar to the question asked yes
terday concerning the- blockade after the
arrival of Admiral Sampson.
Mr. Raynor said that his purpose was
to show only what the Brooklyn had. done,
and that it did not in any way concern
what the New York had done. His pur
pose, he said, was to show what had been
done toward developing the strength of
the shore batteries. "I know what the
ruling of the court means," he said, "and
bow respectfully to It"
- Admiral Dewey said that If the question
was confined to the Brooklyn there could
be no objectlou. The question was then
asked as to what the Brooklyn learned
concerning the shore batteries as a re
sult of any bombardments in June. Be
fore a reply could be given the court re
tired for consultation. At the conclusion
of the conference Mr. Raynor changed
his question so as to read as follows:
"What do you know from your own
observation in reference to the strength
of the shore batteries and the guns? I
want the result of your observation at
Santiago acquired by you at any time
without going into any general or specific
detail as to the bombardments."
Replying, Lieutenant Doyle said that
at the bombardment which had taken
place June 6. the Zocapa battery had re
plied at first very spiritedly, but that it
soon "weni out of business." After the
ships withdrew the enemy had again
manned their guns and then shot at the
On the occasion of the second bombard
ment they did not remain so long-. "They
always took a snap shot at us as we left,"
Mr. Raynor then asked Lieutenant Doyle
how often he had seen Commodore Schley
under fire during the Santiago campaign.
"Every time we were under fire," he
replied, "during these bombardments and
in the battle of July 3."
"What was his conduct? I refer you to
the first specification of the precept, his
conduct m connection with the Santiago
campaign, and what was his conduct and
bearing at any time during the bombard
ment or during- the battle of July 3, when
his ship was under fire?"
Admiral Schley Under Fire.
"I did not have an opportunity, as the
Commodore was always near about the
conning tower, to observe his conduct
during the battle, but Immediately pre
vious and after I did have an opportunity
