Why Do Not American Yachts
.Meet With Mishaps, Is Ask
ed By the Editors. ,
London, April IS. All the dally pap
ers express In editorial this morning
their regret at the misfortune which
pursue Kir Thomas Llpton's courageous
attem'uts to life the Aernrlca's cup.
Several papers for the first time ad
mit that high hopes were entertained
of his success, and trust that the tn
evltable'delay will not apoll Shamrock
Ill's chance. The Standard thinks
that a further explanation of the ac
cident la needed. It remarks that the
last t ime It was a bolt that yielded;
now It Is a screw that snapped.
"We do not hear that thew break
ages occur on American boats." r
The Standard fears that Sir Thomas
Llpton's chances, at no time very good,
are leas than ever. Another paper
asks why there were no life buoys
aboard to throw to the seaman, Collier,
who was drowned. "
The Field publishes an exhaustive
analysis of the America' cup challeng
er. Assuming that Shamrock I la In
the same trim as in lfOl, the paper
considers that Shamrock III could al
low Shamrock I about 15 to 18 seconds
per mile. If she can cany her sail,
continues the Field, the challenger is
likely to prove a slippery customer.
Should she fall In the cup races it will
probably lie because Herresch'oft haa
made some great advance In the' speed
of his new boat on a reach. It would
not be asy to design a more weatherly
boat than th challenger, but in theory
It should not be Impossible to design
a conaiderably faster boat fdr reauh
ing or running.
OFFER TO POSTPONE
THE TACHT RACES.
Designer Confident That Challenger's
Hull Is Not Injured Telegrams :
of Sympathy Received.
Weymouth, April IS. Thanks to

secured today and towed to the harbor

Sir Thomas Lipton received a cable
gram from Vice-Commodore Boune, of
the ,New York Yacht Club, offering to
postpone the races. A conference was
held between Sir Thomas and several
members of the Royal Ulster Club to
night and Sir Thomas sent his reply.
It la understood that he has declined
the extension offered. Fife has express
ed his satisfaction that the hull of
the chlleng?c was not Injured.
Telegrams expressing sympathy for
the accident continue to be received
from distinguished jiersons In America
RELIANCE NEARLY READY.
Cup Defender Soon to Have Trial Spin
Brltsol. April 18. With the Reliance
more than half rigged and the Consti
tution on her way to New London to
complete final peraparatlons for her
final spin, there is a prospect that
these two yachts may come together
for a short bout off Newport a week
from today. The main boom of the
Reliance was slung this afternoon, and
Rigger Dillman said tonight that he
expected to finish by Tuesday. The
bending of sails on the Reliance will
occupy, only a few hours, and the crew
will be given two or three days' prac
tice hoisting sails, so that the boat will
practically be ready tor the builder's
trial on the 25th.
Men Caught In Act of Robbing a
Bank and a Battle Is
ONE OF THE LOOTERS KILLED
A Baker Was Ordered to Throw
Up His Hands and He Re
plied With a Shot v
Wampum, Pa., April 18. In a bat
tle following an unsuccessful attempt
to rcb the First National Bank of this
place early today, one man waa killed
and anoth.-r seriously wounded. The
dead man was one of the burglars and
he has not been identified. The wound
ed man Is Henry Willoughby, a baker,
who sutH-laed the burglars .while at
wotk. His injuries are serious.
Willoughby was passing the bank at
an early hour on hi way to work when
he was suddenly confronted by a man
who, at the point of a revolver, com
manded him to throw up his hands and
be quiet. He did so. but in his right
hand was a revolver, and a moment
later both men fired at each other.
At the report from the revolvers two
men rushed from the bank and took
a hand '.n the shooting. The fight
aroused some of the people in the vi
cinity of the bank, and they were soon
at the scene of the battle, but before
their arrival the burglars fled,
. While the men had broken Into the
banking-rooms they had not complet
ed ,t!e drilling of the safe and their
attempt at robbery waa unsuccessful.
