Glen Cove. May 23. A good north
east wind this morning presaged a
fine contest netween the Reliance,
Columbia and Constitution today.
Tho latter boat lay at anchor this
morning alongside tho vJolumbla, and
Is In fine trim. At 9 the Columbia
and Constitution were ready to move
to the starting point. Over In Echo
Bay tho' Reliance's lingo sails were
seen slowly running up. The wind
indicated 11 miles to windward
thrash, a three mile broad reach and
an 11-mile run with wind abaft the
beam for tho course today. This gives
an excellent chance to try the defend
er out In good shape. A slight bubble
to the seaward made the Columbia
admirers hazard the prediction that
tho Rellancn would not have a runa
way race, such as marked tho trial
of two days ago.
Even more steam yachts and pleas
ure craft are off Glen Cove today than
on Thursday. A hair holiday In New
York seemed to have caused all who
are able, to attend the trial. Steam
.yachts and a private regatta commit-
too boat came up early tms morning,
while the New York Yacht Club's
steamer Slrakas had her decks Jam
med with crowding yachting enthusiasts.
