New York, Aug. 23. In a splendid
12 to 16-knot breeze, over a windward
and leeward course of 30-miles, the
gallant sloop Reliance yesterday beat
Shamrock III in commanding style, by
exactly nine minutes actnal time, or
seven minutes and three seconds, after

Sir Thomas Lipton'a third challenger
on account of Reliance's larger sailing
plan as at present measured.
It was a royal water fight for the

the yachting supremacy ol the world,
and by a strange coincidence the first
victory in the cup series ol 1003 oc
cur re l on the 5 2d anniversary of the
day on which the old schooner Ameri

around the Isle of Wight. The Reli

Situation la Critical.
Sofia. Bnlagrla, Aug. 25. The gen
eral outlook in Macedonia shows no
signs of improvement, and the develop
ments in the next few days are awaited
here with the gravest anxiety. The
outbreak at Adrianople Is growing and
disturbances are also prevalent along
the coast and In the vicinity ol the I3o
garian frontier. A dispatch from Dub

manian army, with a brigade of cavalry
from Bucharest, has been ordered to
march toward the Bu garian frontier,
ostensibly for maneuvers.

Polls., Aug. 21. All the dispatches
received hero today Indicate that the
revolution In Macedonia is spreading.
Ihe situation is causing intenseauxlely
in official circles. The most alarming
news relates to an attack covering a
considerable area in the raatern part of
tha Adrlanople Vilayet, whero tho in
aurgents have captured the town ot
Vastllxo. They took the chief Turkish
officials prisoners, and brought them to
the Bulgarian frontier, where they lib
erated them. The Torklih officials
fearing to return to Vaalllko, sought
refuge with the Bulgarian authorities,
who sent them to n hotel In Burgas,
where they were at liberty to remain
Tne insurgents burned the villages
around Vaalllko and attacked a Turk
ish military post at the monastery of
Klijah. The eastern part ol the Adrlan
ople Vilayet is a mount Inovia region,
and tho villages are few and scattered
l'he strength cl the insnrgeuts is un
known. It ia thought the outbreak is
not an organized movement, but la in
tended to draw the Turkish troops from
the other districts.
The peculiar danger of the latest out
break lie in its proximity to the Bul
garian frontier, thua creating a situa
tion long foreseen and dreaded hy the
Soda government. The Turks are now
certain to send a considerable force to
this territory to suppress the outbreak,
which will necessitate tho strengthen

frontier. With the two armiea close

strained relations, the situation be

Oregon Irrigation Sites Don't Look Uood
Washington, Aug. 24. In bia first
annual report, made public today, F.
H. Newell, chief of the government re
clamation service, reviewing conditions
in Oregon, says:
"The localities where irrigation
work can proceed with the grea est ad
vantage have been selected already bv
tbe state under the Carey act, and it la
not deairab e to forestall state action In
tbe matter. Preliminay examinations
made so far up to December 31 show
that moat ot tbe reciamable land is so
situated that the projects must be
small and scattered, and little vacant
public land can be benefitted, further
examinations will doubtlesa reveal
many localities where work can be be
gun to advantage and persistent search
will Justify the expenditure of consider
able sums in construction of storage
and diversion works.
This presumption, it may be added.
has apparently been Justified, Judging
from the large number ol withdrawals
made under the irrigation act in hast
em Oregon during the past six months.
Mr. Newell recognizes the Justice of
maklog expenditures in Oregon in view
of the large contributions nf tbe alate
to the reclamation fund. "On the oth
er hand." he says, "the demand for
and immediate necessity of reclamation
works are not particularly noticeable.'

high and more than 300 feet wide.
The torrent swept everything before it.
The flood struck Flagataff shortly after

New York, Aug. 24. If Lieutenant
