NEW YORK Oct. 4. One thing is universally agreed
to among yachtmen and that is that Hogarth, of the Sham
rock, proved himself a better Seaman than Barr. It was
generally conceded that the favoring flukes which attended
the Shamrock were due not so much to Lipton's luck as to
Hogarth's better judgment. The predictions for tomorrow,
while not predicting perfect yachting weather, point to favor
able conditions for a good race. According to the weather
forecast, the day will be cloudy, with variable winds shifting
to fresh easterly.
