In setting its balloon jib Shamrock en
countered another piece of bad luck. One

hung for some minutes like a limp rag on

squared away for home It was seen that
Reliance was making a runaway race of

It skimmed along the surface of the water
like a gull with outstretched pinions, leav

The pace .was So fast that many of the

were left behind.
The scene at the finish was sout stirring.
Under Its towering cloud of canvas, roll

bounded across the finish line like a queen.

Shamrock III got clear of Reliance It laid
a parallel course. The wind began to mod
erate a bit and wise observers asserted
that Reliance had half a minute's ad

When Cbth yachts were about a quarter
of a mile apart and a mile and a half from
the turning mark Reliance was ahead, but
considerably tq leeward of Shamrock III.
They, were southwest of the . mark and
heading toward the Jersey coast, when the
wind Suddenly shifted from south-southwest
.to south by southwest, three points.
This placed Reliance In a windward posi
tion. It was. clear1 luck and gave the de
lender distinct advantage. Shamrock III
held on Its course toward the Jersey coast
and Reliance crossed Its bow a quarter
of a mile to the windward. Both theft
made short hitches to the turning mark,
and when Reliance rounded It, three min
utes and twenty seconds In advance of the
ohallenger,' the whistles of the fleet ac
knowledged Ita luck and its lead. This,
with the four seconds, loss at the start,
gave Reliance three minutes and twenty
four seconds clear gain.
Once around the mark, Reliance broke out
Its balloon Jib topsail, Swung out its spin
naker polo and broke out Its spinnaker for
a run dead before the wind to the finish.
Whether its spinnaker sheet parted or
slipped from its fastening, or the boom
lifted, was not clear, but the pole swung
ahead high In the' air and the blg sail
hung In looae folds across Its Jib topsail
stay. For a minute it-looked as though it
were in serious dlfilculty, but the pole was
hauled aft to its proper position and the
spinnaker began to do its work.
' Shamrock Ronads Mark.
Reliance was three-fourths of a mile
away when Shamrock III turned the mark
and broke out its balloon Jib topsail. The
upper part ot It refused to break out and
slill hung in stops, but only for a few
minutes. As. with Reliance, Ita spinnaker,
too, swung across Its Jib topsail stay and
hung empty of wind for a minute or more.
When it was sheeted back Into position
there was a good aised rip In the leach of
it near the masthead and during all the
run home It bellied out loosely aa though
Captain Wrings was not filling It for fear
he might' lose It altogether. During all the
fifteen-mile' run which the yachts covered
at a twelve-knot clip Reliance steadily and
persistently crawled away from the now
hopelessly beaten challenger.
The smoke of the skurrylng fleet almost
hid them from the shore as Reliance swept
across the line and into a long lane of the
faster boats which had got there in tltne
to see the finish and to acknowledge Its
victory. Eight minutes and thirty-six sec

It across the line and received the saluto

C. D. Mower, the official measurer ot the
New York Yacht cluo, notllled Mr.' Craw
ford this morning that he would measure
the yacht at' Erie basin' with a representa
tive of Reliance en board. Nobody on
board either yacht would discuss the meas
urement of Shamrock with Its anchor and
chain aboard. Sir Thomas Lipton said:.
It was all an oversight and the yacht
club representatives were only nindn cog
nizant of our IVInK measure! without
them when we told them. Neither their
representatives nor ours presnt at the
measuring noticed the error at the time.
It won't make any difference.
May Make Some Difference.
When Shamrock III was first measured
the .hatches had to be removed and two
lightweight men substituted for two heavier
ones In the crew, to keep the water line
Inside of ninety feet. This trought It up
to 89.81 feet. The anchor and chain weigh
as much as two men and it Is. thought that
when the yacht Is remeasured there will
be some difficulty ' In getting Inside tba

"We Were beaten fairly and squarely. It

not do as, well as I had expected In the

by Thursday's failure, rose again during

years the wife of his father, and during the
latter part of this time the Intimate friend
of a much younger man, the present earl
of Derby. It was universally supposed that
she would become Lady Derby as soon as
her year of widowhood was over, but it
was not until the death of Lord Derby's
father and his own accession to the peer
age that the marriage took place. It was,
of course, extremely distasteful to the
Sallsburys, but there was no open opposi
tion, for there were grown and growing
children of the new Lady Derby by the
former Lord Salisbury, half brothers and
sinters of the present peer, and for their
sake he was silent.
Association with Derby.
After awhile they became .even closer
by political relationship than by mar
riage, for both. husbands were tories, and
In 1874, when Disraeli returned to power
as the acknowledged head of the party,
both men entered the cabinet. At first
Lord Derby was more prominent; he was
even spoken of as a possible premier, but
ha waived his pretensions and took office
under Disraeli as secretary of foreign af
fairs. Salisbury, however, had not for
gotten his old quarrel with Disraeli, and
held aloof for awhile. He had, Indeed,
characterized the apoMacy of the shrewd
politician in the hardest terms, and was
very unwilling to become his subordinate.
But It was found Impossible to form a
tory cabinet without the heir of Hatfield.
And now came in play the wifely influ
ence. Lady Salisbury waa very ambitious
for her husband and perceived his oppor
tunity. But Salisbury was difficult and
unyielding. His whole character, Indeed,
la full of determination, not naturally pli
ant or diplomatic In any way,. and the lo
ries became anxious; their ret urn to power
was at stake.
Finally the Duchess of Marlborough, the
present dowager, a great political woman
herself, a tory of the tories, appealed to
Lady Salisbury at the Instance of several
statesmen, and besought her to Induce
Lord Salisbury to consent. Whether the
duchess touched the feminine heart, or

YoaasT Canadian Robinson Crasoes.
A couple of young Canadians had an acci
dent to their canoe and were left upon i
small uninhabited Island for four days be
fore help came, during which time they had
nothing to eat but a couple of packages of
In telling the story one of them says:
"There was quite a party of us, and we
prepared to apend a Jolly time hunting in
Muskoka. I provisioned tho party and
among other supplies laid In a stock of
Grape-Nuts food of which I am very fond.
'One day we .left camp to paddle to the
nearest - steamer landing 12 miles away.
Just as wa pushed off, one of our com
panions threw Into the canoe two-packages
of Grape-Nuts and a can of condensed milk

compliments, they were wishing they had
some yesterday.' We had gone about half
the distance when It began to blow, the
Lake becoming very rough, ao'we turned
our frail boat toward a small Island and
paddled, with all our might td gain this
shelter. Heavy rain began to fall and we
drove the boat ashore with more haste than
caution and in doing so struck a sunken
log and tore a large hole in the light canoe.
We scrambled ashore and hauled the boat
up after us and a nice plight we were In

f whether Lady Salisbury was convinced by
the arguments of her friend, certain It Is
that her Influence was thrown Into the
tcry scale. Lord Salisbury surrendered
and became a member of Disraeli's cabi
net, whom he had criticised and ridiculed
Becomes Foreign Secretary.
He probably was never sorry for taking
this atep, for In 1S7S another division oc
curred In the tory government. It was
during the Tureo-Russlan war. Disraeli
had become Lord Bcaconsncld, and Initi
ated a foreign policy which excited great
dissensions. Many ot his own party dis
agreed with the chief, among these at first
both Salisbury and Derby. llut Lady
Salisbury again saw Into her husband's
future, and as Lord Derby remained firm
in his opposition, she persuaded Salisbury
to recant. This gave Salisbury the posi
tion and the Influence In the cabinet which
Derby was abandoning. Finally a tre
mendous exp'.oslon came; Lord Derby left
the government at the crisis of the eastern
war, and Lord Salisbury took his piece us
foreign secretary. From that time he up
held tho same policy which he had before
obstructed and opposed. The change of
front was absolute, and ao waa his re
ward. Derby divulged to some extent his reasons
for leaving the cabinet, and then occurred
one of the most dramatic scenes that of lata
years has enlivened the rather prosy ses
sions of the Housa of Lords. The noble
Kinsmen contradicted each other on the
floor of the august assembly, and Salisbury
used the prohibited word when he gave the
other the lie. He declared that Derby had
betrayed cabinet secrets and represented
facts to foreign governments without au
thority. Then, growing furious,' he com
pared the man who had married his fath
er's widow, the bearer of one of England's
historic names, with the most Infamous
character In English history, and ss he
mentioned Titus Oates In the same breath
with' Derby a shudder passed over the aris
Sells Principle for rower.
In all this crisis Lady Salisbury was cred
ited In high English circles with exerting
great Influence over her husband's octlOns.
She pointed to the prise w hlch Disraeli con
trolled and Salisbury fell. He did exactly
what he had attacked Disraeli for doing
years before; he gave up his avowed prin
ciples for the sake of. power.
The family feud at once broke out anew.
After the language which Lord Salisbury
had used in the House of Lords, .the two
noblemer. of course could not speak, and
the noblewomen took up the quarrel. But
the Sallsburys reaped the harvest for which
they had labored. Lord Salisbury refurn
ished and almost rebuilt a great London
house, and as foreign secretary assumed
the position Lord Derby had left. Lady
Beaconsfleld long was dead, and Lady Sal
isbury at once became the most prominent
woman In the government, often welcoming
sovereigns as her guests.
Lord Salisbury was never a good friend
to America. He uttered very hateful, or, as
the English say, very "nasty" things dur
ing the debates on the Geneva arbitration,
although his chief, Disraeli, was generous
both to America and to Gladstone. But
Salisbury Is high-tempered and bitter, and
after he entered upon his title and estates
became the representative tory of the realm
hating democracy whether at home or
At this time Lady Salisbury refused to
conform to tho etiquette always observed
at the English court, and present American
ladies to her rriajesty when there was no
American minister's wife to perform that
office. Mr. Welsh, our representative at
that time, was a widower, with only an
unmarried daughter to preside over his
household, and the queen had laid down
the rule that the unmarried daughters of
a minister 'could not make presentations.
In consequence, Lady Derby or any other
wife of a foreign secretary had always pre
sented American ladles at the request of
the minister. After Lord Salisbury became
foreign secretary the minister, as usual,
sent In to Lady Salisbury the names Qf the
American women whom he begged her to
present; but the British peeress replied that
she would consent In this Instance as a
favor to Mr. Welsh, but she did not mean
to hold herself obliged to present all Arrar
lean ladles who might be recommended by
him. Mr. Welsh was of Quaker blood, and
swallowed the Indignity, but there have
been wars for lesser causes. The refusal
on account of nationality waa unprece
dented. "The minister, however did not re
port the circumstance to the government.
and prohibited his subordinates from men
tioning it, or Mr. Hayes would probably
have resented the Insult, either by refus
ing to receive British Subjects at Wash
ington or possibly by withdrawing Mr.
Welsh altogether from London.
