RACE IS EXCITING ONE
Defender Steadily Forges
Ahead, Leaving Rival Far
Behind Last Half.
SANDY HOOK, N. J., July 27.
The America's cup stays in America.
This was decided shortly before sun
down today when the American de
fender Resolute captured the 1920
regatta three to two by defeating
Sir Thomas Lipton's Shamrock IV
in the final race.
The defender outsailed the chal
lenger decisively, boat for boat, in
the last contest of a tempestuous
series the closest and most hard
fought in the history of the trophy
crossing the line at 7:52:23 (un
official time) only about 25 minutes
before expiration of the six-hour
Indeed, the last half of the race
was a race of the defender against
time, with the fate of the contest
resting on the wind, for the chal
lenger was about one mile astern
when the American boat flashed
over the line.
Race Began in Light Airs. t
It was a 30-mile windward and
leeward race, started in light airs
after postponement at 15-minute in
tervals for two hours and a quarter.
After having been led by the chal
lenger two-thirds of the distance to
the first mark, a windward leg, Res-
lute crossed her bows ten miles
from the start and breezed into a
lead, which she maintained and
By the time 22 miles had been
covered the defender was a mile and
a half in the lead, reaching back
and forth on her way to the finish
line. At one time toward the end
ehe was two miles ahead of the
Shamrock, but the challenger came
op to within a mile at the finish.
While waiting for Shamrock to
finish, the steam yacht Victoria ran
down to Resolute and all hands, led
by Sir Thomas Upton, gave the vic
tor three cheers.
Defender Gets Noisy Welcome.
The spectators' fleet gave the de
fender such a noisy welcome as she
crissed the line that it could be
heard ten miles away on shore.
The Resolute gave the Shamrock
the worst drubbing of the regatta
when it won, boat for boat, by 19
minutes 45 seconds.
Overcoming a 40-second lead and
the advantage of a windward berth
which Shamrock had taken at the
start, the defender held a lead of
four minutes and eight seconds at
the half-way stake and finished 13
minutes and five seconds ahead. In
eluding her handicap of six minutes
and 40 seconds, Resolute won by 19
minutes and 45 seconds.
Shamrock Victor in Two.
In capturing the series, Resolute
came from behind after 5hamrock
had taken two races, and won out
by three straight victories.
Sir Thomas Lipton, owner of the
challenger, voiced what appeared to
be the unanimous verdict of yachts
men when he declared that "the best

sun, a great fiery ball, was fast

PENDLETON, Or., July 27
Hart and Owens, the two ring-leaders
in the jail-break by six prison
ers Sunday which resulted in the
murder of Sheriff Til Taylor, to
night raided the home of a butcher
named Young at Cayuse, 10 miles
east of Pendleton, according to a
report telephoned to posse head
quarters at 8 o'clock.
The two fugitives, heavily armed,
rushed from the underbrush into the
hcuse. At the point of their guns,
they drove the butcher and his
family from the dwelling and then
proceeded to ransack the place for
food, according to the message.
After helping themselves to all the
food in the house, the two fugitives
dashed again into the underbrush, a
short distance away.
Posses Sent in Autos.
As soon as the message had bten
received here, three automobile loads
of possemen were sent in pursuit.
Picked men experienced in hunting
down fugitives were the only ones
allowed to go.
Hopes of the man-hunters were re

After running down blind leads
and false clews for more than 48

oners must be apprehended.
Although the chase for the fleeing
men has been in progress since early
Sunday afternoon, it was admitted
at posse headquarters that up to to
night there had been no really tan

The feeling still persisted that the
men were in hiding in the wild and
