She Led the1 Challenger at
Every Turn
With Victory in Sight Defen
der Failed for Lack i
of Wind
NEW YORK, Aug. 31 An autumnal
storm which had kept Reliance and
Shamrock III for 4S hours within shel
ter of Handy Hook1 bay, had blown It
rt out sufficiently this morning to
enable the two racers to venture once
more Into the open sea for a. contin
uation of their races for the." Ameri
ca's cup. The- gale, however, had left
' as a token of 'its strength a very
.heavy swell, 'so that when the two
boats, with Shamrock in the lead.
turned the point of Sandy Hook they
i at once began to roll and wallow like
ia couple of coal barges.
i The day had little attraction for
spectators, for the dark clouds which
'still hung low, seemed to threaten rain
at any moment, while the uneasy ocean
Jiad little to Invite any except the
Stoutest sailor. "r '
The decision of the yucht owners to
start the race and terminate, if possi
ble, the series, was accepted on all
s.lles, as the interest In jhe races had
been pretty well dampned by the nu
merous delays. It was not surprising,
therefore, that the fleet which followed
the two racers was a mere ghost of
that which saw the yachts In the pre
vious contests.
The yachts were accompanied to the
start by scarcely half a dozen tugs, a
few steam yachts and two or three
excursion boats, so that the", revenue
cutters, which arrived on the scene 7 a
" little later,- had very little to do In
keeping the space about the lightship
free from interference.
The yachts hoisted their mainsails
before lea ring for the start and were
well ut to the lightship by 10 o'clock,
an boor before the time set for the
contest On reaching the lightship they
found that the wind was about east,
northeast, with a velocity of about ten
miles. Both racers dropped their tow
lines and broke out their Jibs. They
stood off and on about the lightship,
trying the strength of the wind and
sea, and then began setting small club
topsails. - "
While this work was going on the tug
navigator arrived with the regatta
committee and stopped near the light
ship, while the committee: tried the
kind's strength and the chances for
starting the race from that point. ,
Captain Barr. of Reliance, and Cap
tain Wringe, of Shamrock III, evidently
believed early In the day the 'race
would be sailed, for 'the crews of both
bnats put up their jibs and topsails in
stops and began active preparations to
Ko out. Sir Thomas. Lip ton, on the
Erin, smiled as he said:
"Well, I guess we're all pretty bad
judges of the weather here. It looks
niore like a calm than a breeze and
heavy sen. . " V'-'. ' i .'.
Captain Barr said there would be
one objection to the day If the breeze
continued to fail, and that would be
the chopw sea, which would retard
the boats and prevent their doing the
course Inside the time limit,
At o'clock both yachts raised their
mainsails and were awaiting the ar
rival of the Navigator," with the com
mittee on board. The wind was blow
ing steadily st ten miles, at the Hook,
kut with indications that it -would not
so fresh outside or near the light
n'p. At 9:08 both yachts took tow
lines from their tenders and started out
the Hook, so as to be down at the

gator reached the Hook-at 3:40, but
findfng : the yachts gone, ordered the
stake boat, the John Scully, to her
position, and started for the lightship
herself, making it evident that there
.would be5-a race unless the sea was
too rough. ' ' -.. r ; ',
, The wind at 9:45 was blowing about
11 miles, fresh from the northeast. As
she went , out past Sandy Hook the
Nafvigator signalled to Sir Thomas that
the conditions favored a start of the
race,5 and that the committee would see
him .at the start. The Erin had no
special guests" from New York today.
Sir Thomas having" notified them that
there would probably be no race today.
The Erine left the Hook at 10 o'clock
for the starting pointy
; ""When the committee boat reached
the lightship it was found - at to start
a race, from that point 15 miles to lee
ward Or windward would be Impossible
and 'a sigTial, was hoisted postponing
the start Until a 1'ne could be estab
lished sufficiently south of the lightship
to send "the yachts off to windward.
As soon as thesfgnal was hoinsted the
Navigator began to steam south from
the lightship, while the two yachts and
the small accompanying fleet followed
In that direction. .
The committe boat came to- anchor
about four miles south by west of the
lightship. The course was signaled as
east northeast, which would X ring the
turn; southeast of Long Beach, about
six miles off shore.
When the preparatory signal was
fired at 11:30 the wind was still drop
ping off and had a strength of scarcely
more ' than five o six' miles an hour.
The ! contest for position at the start
began ' before the warning signal was
fired, each captain "making a desperate
effort to get the best place. Today
Shamrock III seemed to have a little
mire life, and Captain Wringe
able ; to get her out from beneath the
great blanketing sails of Reliance. ,
Atj 11:44, one ; minute before ; the
starting gun was fired, both' beats were
holding along the starboard., tack, with
Reliance a length in the lead. Half a
minute - before the starting gun was
fired jib 'topsails were broken out on
both boats. The starting gun was fired
at 11;"45, with both boats to the lee
ward of the line. - -. r
They' mediately, trimmed , their
sheets and went "across the line on the
starboard ttfcK 4leiiance a little to
windward, i.
The wind at the start was blowing
about five miles an hour, and both
yachts at once headed toward the Long
IslaRd shore. Kach carried the same
sails.- with large club topsails. Imme
diately' after crossing the line- Sham
rock went to port, Reliance allowing 1
hed example 30 seconds later. For
fives minutes they sailed on the 'port1
tack. ','i
' Reliance was point in , magnificent
to windward, but smashed the seas
badly. - Shamrock apparently was un
able to hold so high a wind, but there
wast ;littlefoange ii. their positions
when they threw back again to star
board, Reliance being first to break
tack and 'Shamrock following prompt
ly after. '
During the first-half hour after the
start the yacht1 made three tacks, but
the wind being: light at 12:15 they had
scarcely covered more than two miles
of the course, Reliance, as usual,
seemed to gain steadily, and at 12:20
was apparently leading ty an eighth of
a mile. '
- Shamrock. In all the tacks that were
made up to this point, Was the first
to make the move, Reliance following
usually inside of a minute. The wind,
which, at 12: 20, was blowing not more
than five "or six miles an hour, seemed
to suit Shamrock better, and sne made
easier work of the long swell, though
Reliance , was pointing higher. The
yachts were being greatly retarded by
the flood tide. At 1 o'clock liope that
thf yachts would finish within the time
limit began to disappear. ,
When both boats started toward
Long Beach 't was easy to see what
a great advantage Reliance had estab
lished because of her better ability to
go to windward. When the short liitch
had been completed Barr was ; over a
mile to the windward of the Lipton
boft.: -: '. ''-.' "'f ' .-i
"Reliance caught a bad slant of wind
at one time, and for two minutes the
chalenger . traveled about three points
higher. But Shamrock received the
same slant later, so that this slight ad
vantage was soon overcome. The wind
hauled a little more to the north and
headed off slightly, nntll, at 1:67, "Barr
shot "Reliance about on the port tack,
followed one minute later by ; Sham
rock. When the yachts stra'gbtened
out on the port tack, 'headed for the
mark. Reliance seemed to have a lead
of about a mile and a half.- '
Rut when Barr learned that Reliance
fared better In the heavy ground swell
he led his -rival close to the Long Isl
and shore, where Reliance had' better
sailing and continually Increased her
lead. Reliance had the better of V all
the' Short hitches In shore, where she
pinched herself to Windward on every
puff and clump of the wind. The wind
continued to drop until it was blowing
not more than three or four miles - an
hour. Under these condltons Shamrock
roled considerably, but Reliance's flat,
broad body 'kept her on her feet and
conseauently moving. a ''
iWhtin one mile of the mark Reliance
made two short hitches to fetch It. one
left the mark on the starboard hand,
jibing over as she went around at 3:45
rtinnfflcfaH. '. l " " '-. t " .
The wind hadljacked so far around
to the north that Reliance was unable
to set her spinnaker, and she carried
balloon -jib topsails, mainsail and club
topsail as she headed away for 'the
finish: 15 miles away, with Just two
hours and 15 minutes within Which to
reach the finish line In order that there
should be .a race. When Reliance turn

from, that point. . , '
Shamrock pointed for the mark, and
at "3:21 slowly' jibed around. She Im

. Interview With Hay. ; ,
Washington, : Aug. i 31-Cheklb; Bey
the Turkish Minister, had a long inter
view today with Secretary -Hay. He re-
fused to diScuss the Interview. stat
ing that he had nothing to communi
cate ' further than ; what : appeared .- in
the Associated Press dispatches, yes
terday aftemoonf Afterward Secretary
Hay visited the Navy Department. . :
If the Turkish i Minister requested
that; the European squadron be kept
away from Turkish swaters his request
probably could riot ' be granted, even
should - this Government desire to ac
cede to it, as the Navy Department
stated that it would be impossible to
communicate with either" the Brooklyn
or . San Francisco until their arrival at
Beirut. - V ' '
Chekib Bey assu.-ed Secretary Hay
that the Turkish Government had done
nothing wrong, and. would use every
endeavor to protect American citizens
residing in Turkey, and said that the
Turkish Government was not respons
ible for aijy of the disasters that had
occurred. . ' '
Secretary Hay's 'j calf upon Acting
Secretary Darling was for the purpose
European squadron, and . also what its
of ascertaining the whereabouts of the
orders are. There Is no intention of
changing any orders at present, espe
cially as the ships cannot . be reached
until they arrive at Beirut. No mes
sages of Importance have been re
ceived' from Mr. Irishman today..
Late dispatches from Minister Irish
man give in detail the conditions in
Turkey, and do not differ materially in
tone from those previously sent. Min
ister Leishman does not, as reported in
some quarters, request the withdrawal
hf the American ships ' from Turkish
waters. 1 While reports by way of Lon
don state that no attempt , was made
upon the life of , Vice-Consul Magelssen,
official advices so far received show
Chat such an attempt was made. The
present status was known before the
ships left Genoa, and this Government
did not decide to change the orders. It
is now stated, however, that should
there be a calm and peaceful condition
at Beirut when the ships arrive there,
the matter of sending them to another
port will be considered and possibly
adopted. The Turkish MIn'ster made
ho request Upon Secretary Hay at the
Interview today regarding the move
ment of the j United States warships,
and nothing in this matter was promis
ed ; by the State ; Department.
