Glencove, May 21. The day for tho
maiden race of the Reliance In her
trial against tho Columbia, Is any
thing but promising, the wind putting
across the sound, while a denso haze
makes visual work difficult. Intense
interest Is shown In yachting circles.
Although the defender has shown up
well In tunlng-up spins, nothing defi
nite about her sailing qualities can
possibly bo known until she ranges
along another yacht.
E. D. Morgan, the Columbia's man
aging owner, said this morning ho
could not see nny reason why tho
Reliance should not be tho fastest
boat, but concluded by saying he re-
gretted very much he could not have
gone against the Constitution today.
The Columbia's crew was astir early
with full sails hoisted. The mainsail
Is said to be tho finest ever hoisted
over tho old defender, and both sloops
will carry the largest posslblo sail
spread aloft If the wind stayB light.
The Reliance will kite tho gigantic
club topsail, which has caused so
Poor Day for Racing.

o'clock, but It Is anything but an Ideal
yachting day. The Reliance left New
Rochelle about 10 and moved out Into
tho sound. Unless the wind strength
ens, the trial will be llttlo more than
a drifting match.
