Columbia Wins Decisive Vic-
i tory Over Shamrock II.
FASTEST RACE IN CUP'S HISTORY.
, Yankcc Bent Beats Its British Rival
by Two Minutes and Fifty-Two Seconds
ends Actual Time In Elghteen-Knot
Breeze Over Thirty-Mile Course.
Now York , Oct. \ . In a
whole sail breeze , which heeled the blR
cup contestimtH down until thulr Ice
rails were awash In the foaming seas ,
Herreschoff's white wonder , the Co-
lumbla , yesterday heat Watson's Ilrlt-
Ish creation , the Shamrock 11 , over a
triangular course of 30 miles , by two
minutes and flt'ty-two seconds actual
tlmo. With the 43 seconds which the
Irish sloop must allow the American
boat on account of her larger anil plan ,
the Columbia won the second race by
3 minutes 30 seconds. The fastest
race ever sailed in a cup contest , it
was not only a royal struggle from a
spectacular point of view , but It was
absolutely decisive as to the merits of
the two racing machines. There Is
not a yachting sharp who witnessed
the race who Is not firmly convinced
that the defender is the ablerwboat ,
blow high or blow low , beating , reachIng -
Ing , or running , and that Sir Thomas
and his merry British tars are doomed
to return home empty handed.
Again the ancient piece of silver ,
which was brought across the west
ern ocean 50 years ago , is safe.
Again American supremacy In marine
architecture has been vindicated. Sir
Thomas has been wishing for a breeze
that would bury Shamrock's lee rail
and yesterday he had It , Just as he had
a similar breeze In the concluding
race two years ago , when Columbia
in a driving finish beat the first Sham
rock over six minutes.
Breeze Was Strong and True.
The wind yesterday was strong and
true , blowing around 18 knots out of
the northwest , and at every point of
Bailing , except perhaps running before
the wind , In which the defender has
already taken the measure of the dial-
t longer , the Yankee sloop proved her-
abler than the Watson model.
From the tlmo she crossed the starting
line , one minute and thirty-four seconds
ends behind the mug hunter , until sno
picked up and passed the Irish boat ,
three miles after rounding the second
mark , Columbia's pace was faster and
ehe behaved better than her rival.
Reaching for the first mark , ten
miles down the Long Island shore ,
with the wind abaft the beam , she
gained 22 seconds. In the closer reach
for the stake she gained 30 seconds ,
and In the thrash to windward on the
leg home she gained exactly two min
Exciting All the Way.
Not , perhaps , as thrilling as the re
markable contest of last Saturday , yes
terday's race was , nevertheless , stir
ring from start to finish , and as a
marine spectacle It could hardly have
been surpassed. It was an ideal Octo
ber day at sea. There was Just enough
frostlness to clear the atmosphere and
make the whole course visible from
shore. The breeze from the land piled
up little swells , but It was strong
enough to whip the froth out of the
racing waves until It whitened the face
of the sea. The tall , canvas-clouded
racers heeled as the wind smote them
I ) until their crews could with difficulty
'ccop their footing on the slippery , slop-
'Ing decks and the spurting spray was
tossed 30 feet high as they shook their
lean noses free of the foaming crests.
On the thrash to windward their decks
were a smother of white and fountains
of foam circled away from their grace
Barr's Shrewd Trick.
The Yankee victory began with the
etart , when the crafty Barr , by a sys
tem of maneuvering , convinced his ad
I ( versary that he was trying to cross
i r. the line first. Captain Sycamore
promptly took the bait and , rushing
Ills boat Into position , sent her away
almost In the spoke of the gun.
Thereupon Captain Darr , having ac
complished his purpose , tacked about
tack of the line and held off for more
than a minute. Then with a flying
Etart ho went over Just before the
handicap gun was fired. Some of the
patriots were disappointed until the
experts explained that there was no
windward berth In a reach where the
boats could lay their course straight
for the mark and that the position
astern , where Darr could keep his eye
on every move of his rival , was the
commanding one. Ho could watch
Bycamoro llko a hawk , knowing that
ptvhon the gap between them was closed
the race was his.
1 For the first 13 miles no human eye
could tell which ship. If either , was
aining , so closely were they matched.
Hut gradually It became apparent that
the Columbia was overhauling the flyIng -
Ing challenger. Slowly , Inch by Inch
and foot by foot the white boat gained.
were going at a terrific pace.
Delirious Welcome to Victor.
' 'A few minutes after rounding the
Bccond mark , it was apparent that
the Columbia was footing faster and
pointing hlKhi-r. She went through
Shamrock's lee. llko a quarter horse.
FTho rush of the leviathans on the final
tack was magnificent. Excursion
boats , black with people , gathered
about the finish In a great hurseshoo.
'As the Columbia swept across the fin
