the Franco-Prussian war.
The expectation that today would bring
the conclusion of the Humbert trial re
newed the intense public interest In the
case. The court room was again crowch-d.
Among the throng were a number of Ameri

United States embassy.
The prisoners maintained the same out

walked in haughtily and surveyed the

Then Mme. Humbert began formally:

"Then, .what name?"
He replied: "My fortune was made dur
ing the war of 1870, by reinvestment of
rentes, whlcn were men very low, ana s
large quantity was bought here."
Mme. Humbert paused again, length
ily, and then continued:
His name Is Rernler, the Intermediary

Sketch of Career.
Robert Arthur Talbot Cecil, marquis of
Salisbury, was born at Hatfield. .the family
manor, February 10, 1130. His early educa
tion was had at Eton end finished at Ox
ford, where he became a fellow of All
Soultr college. In 1SS1 tha future marquis
married a Miss Anderson, daughter of a
barrister, who rose to be a Judge. The
connection was most unwelcome to tha
noble family into which she entered, for a
barrister in England belongs to the middle
class, and for years the future premier
waa under tha ban of his father. His al
lowance was unbefitting his birth, though
the BaUshury fortune la enormous, and as
children came the impecunious pair were
obliged to eke out a support by writing for
the magazines and newspapers, a means at
that time not regarded as dignified for

Reliance today beat Shamrock HI by eight

seven minutes thirty-nine seconds after de
ducting the one minute fifty-seven second sy
time allowance which the defender con
ceded to Sir Thomas Lipton's third chal
lenger on account of Reliance's sail area

It waa a royal water fight for the ancient
trophy, which carries with it the yachting
supremacy of the world. By a strange co
incidence, the first victory In the cup series
of 1903 occurred on the fifty-second anni
versary of the day on which America won
Its famous victory round the Isle of Wight,
Reliance beat the British boat three min
utes twenty-four seconds in the thresh to
windward, and five minutes thirty-six sec.
onds in the run down the wind.
First Race Conclusive.
The nautical sharps, who hsd already
made up their minds on Thursday that Re
liance could take the measure of the chal
lenger in any kind of weather, regard to
day's test as conclusive, although they
hardly anticipated so overwhelming a vic
tory. The race even dampened the ardor
of Sir Thomas, who Insisted, after Thurs
day's fluke, that his yacht was greater
than ever. Still like a true sportsman, he
does not acknowledge defeat and hopes for
better luck next time.
The single criticism his friends make of
today's race is that tha only shift of thb
wind which occurred waa to the advantage
of the defending yacht. Aa thla shift oc
curred On the windward beat, even grant
ing that It accounted for Reliance's lend

magnificent sight as they plunged seaward.
The first few minutes were watched with
intense interest. Both were foptlng fast.
They showed yards of their underbodles
and shipped a good deal of spray and some
solid water forward. But after fifteen
minutes their positions had not varied per
ceptibly and there was alarm among the
experts. Those who had expected to see

were disappointed. Bhamrock hung on and

Wind Shifts with Hellaace Ahead.
The critical point in the race came at
12:40. a little less than two hours after the
start. The mark was less than two miles
away and the relative positions of the
boats were about tha same. Both were on
the starboard tack. Reliance ahead, but
to leeward. Suddenly the wind dropped
arid hauled a trifle to the west. The shift
enabled the yachts to head up for tha mark
with Reliance In the lead by about 200
yards. This waa the only thing which
marred an otherwise truly sailed race. But
from that time on Reliance steadily In
creased Its lead In windward work until it
was three-quarters of a mils ahead. As
it rounded the outer mark, the whistles,
sirens, bands and the voices of the un
numbered thousands on the excursion fleet
