THE YACHTS HAVE RACED. AND THE ENGLISHMAN IS BEATEN. The Boston White Sloop Distances th Oenesta by Sixteen Minutes Successful Itace and a tilorlous Victory for the Puritan. New Youk, Sept. 14. At last the yachts of England and America, the centre-board sloop Puritan audthecutter Ueuesta, have met in a rate of thirty-eitfht miles over the inside course of the New York. Yacht club to-day in extremely liht weather, the centre-board defeating the cutter, lb minutes, 47 second. I.oiik before half past ten yesterday morning the upper bay was dotted with pleasure craft, all heading for the. starting point. There was the same rush of siyht-seers as on previous at tempts. The grant three deck steamers Grand Republic aud Columbia with scores of guy flags flyinx took on board hundreds of passengers to see the nice. A very light breeze from the southward barely rippled the waters of the bay when both the fienesta and I'uritan tripped their anchors and stood on the starboard tack for mid channel. Handsome indeed did these twin ocean gladiators look as they skipped Along overthe almost lilassy surface of the bay. Mr. Forbes and his muscular crew looked confident and earnest while Sir Richard Sutton, Captain Carter and his white-jacketed tarsi appeared slightly uneasy when they siw the liiiht weather. The starting signal was given at 10::K. The yachts came down across the line al most together, aud the I'uritan beiiiiC to wind ward crossed first at lOli.Oom.O-'s.with the ti nesta twoseconds behind her. On the second lack out the (ienesta felt a putt' of wind, which sent her ahead ot the I'uritan slightly, but when both tacked fifteen minutes later, the (Jenesta was a good live hundred vanis in the Puritan's) wake. As the rival" craft passed through the Narrows hundreds of spectators cheered tin contestants. The Puritan catching a puff of wind, passed out lust, while the Ooiiestu lav almost motionless under the lee of the fort, and when she finally got a breeze the Puritan was nearly a mile ahead, tacking to westward. The Puritan passed buoy ." at 1:33 and started for the lightship. The Geuesta passed the buoy at 1:H. lioth were carrying the same sail, main sail, club topsail, fore staysail, jib and jib topsail. From here to outer murk was the most exciting part of the contest. Quite a heavy swell came rolling in from eastward and soon the wave crests were covered with white caps, while the immense flotilla of steamers chased each other at full speed for the lightship to witness the turn which was made by the Puritan at '2h. 14m. 54s., e.nd the (ien-esta at Jh. l'.hn. 10s. Hoi Ii were given perfect ovation and applau-e from sieatn whistles, guns and hundreds of throats ;is they lulled gracefully, rounded the mark for the point of Sandy Hook. The Puritan held her lead well "and both with booms off to starboard came to westward like race horses only to strike into a calm streak. The Puritan went about at and stood into Horseshoe for three minutes, when Rhe was able to weather buoys s' and 10. The Genesta made the same tack latei and llh round. -d buoy 10, the Puritan at :;h. Ssm. 5s. and the Genesta at 3h. him. .Is.. The I'uritan soon increased her lead on the Genesta, crossing the finish line at 4h. :tm. -'s. amid th wildest enthusiasm, the steamers that fairly blocked the channel for a mile to southward closing up around her and making a veritable pandemonium, with whistles for fully five minutes. The Genesta arrived at 4h. Mm. 5-s. and was greeted with a similar reception. When the yachts came along side of each other the crew of the Genesta were standing at the rail and gave the Puritan's crew three rousing cheers, led by Sir Richard Sutton, for the winning yacht. Mr. Forbes waving his cap in the air, led his crew in three times three for the Englishman. During the race the Genesta broke her "main cap" which will cause to-da;, 's heat to be postponed till VVeduesday. Following is the summary : NAME. STAKT. tl. M. S.

Meeting of the Board of Aldermen The Street Hallway. The Hoard of Aldermen held an ad joumed meeting last night. Aldermen Alger, Booth, Holton, Ivelley.Peirce, al ker and Weaver being present. In the ab sence of President Taft, who could not consistently be present, since he is the act ing Mayor in Mayor Woodbury's absence. the Hoard was called to order by City Clerk Pease and Aldermau Holton was elected president pro tern. A communication was received from the Mavor announcing the appointment of l. Panes a. . anana as special policeman ai Holt s mill, and the appointment was continued. A communication from Chief Engineer L. C. Grant was read requesting the at tendance and assistance of the Hoard in the inspection of the Fire Department during it8 annual parade. The invitation was accepted. A petition wax received from tne Woman's Christian Temperance I'nion asking for the free use of City hall for Col. George W. Bain's lecture course. The petition was granted.

A resolution embodying tne terms rec ommended by the special committee on the Winooski and Burlington horse rail road was introduced by Alderman Alger. Aldermau Peirce moved as an amendment that the company be required to use flat and grooved rails around all street corners to such a distance from each cot- ner as the street committee might deem best, and grooved rails on all sidings and turnouts. The amendment was adopted and the tesolution passed. A petition was rea l trom some ot the property holders on the east side of Wi-nooski avenue, between Pearl and College streets, asking that the sidewalk in front of their property be curbed and flagged, and Dr. U. S. Nichols made a few remarks in support of the petition. On motion of Aldermau Peirce the petition whs granted so far as the property of the First Calvan-istic Congregational iciety is concerned.

I THE TELEPHONE MONOPOLY. The Increase of Rates To-day What Is Ooing on Elsewhere Some Accouut of the New England Company. The iucrease in telephone rates resi- ; deuces from $10 to 36 and business houses from 3ri to goes into effect in Bur-1 lingtou to-day. So far as we were able to ascertain last night thirty-two subscribers had ordered out their instruments. That is about the average percentage of instruments discontinued in other places where the increased rates went into effect. The feeling against the monopoly is so strong it is surprising that more instruments have not been ordered out. But the fact is that the telephone has become so great a necessity that it would be very hard to dispense with it even at higher prices. The monopoly is well aware of this fact and does not hesitate to take advantage of it. The only present remedy lies in the hands of the individual subscriber. The company will not recede from its position. In its action the New England company is consistent. The increase has been general and the effect has been the same everywhere. A perfect storm has been raised, protests have poured In, but the autocratic people who run the concern have strictly adhered to the raise in prices. The last place to be "raised" is Lowell. The people of that city will certainly not get any sympathy iu their vigorous kicking from any of the subscribers or the stockholders of the telephone company. To the sharks of that city the public fully acknowledge their indebtedness for the New England monopoly. The Courirr says: The freling is that the company wants to bleed the public, while at the same time ignoring the fact that all the rights it enjoys come from the public. "This the people will not stand, aud, the talk is, the monopoly will bu taught a lesson. The protestants say that they are to be charged an outrageous price in order to pay dividends on millions of dollars oi water, and they don't propose to do any such thing. Further, they say thut at the next session of the legislature an effort will be ma il) to curb the company. The lo til objections to the increase are only an echo of similar protests heard in every place in which the advance has been announced. There is little reason to doubt that many of the users mean what they say, and the formal official notin. ation of the advance will be met with orders to remove the telephones forthwith. Of course t lie greater the number taken out the less valuable the service to those who stay iu and the latter will 1m-compelled to pay an advance of rates for a convenience of reduced value. If the general public were not "in the same boat-' the spectacle of the virtuous people of Lowell howling about telephone monopoly would be keenly enjoyed. The objections in some places have been of a more vigorous character than in others. While in every exchange there has been a reduction in the number of instruments yet the fight against the monopoly has been more vigorous in some towns than in others. Iu Salem,, all the physicians and scores of business men have "lounced" the machines ; in Peabody the system has been practically ruined : in Augusta and Gardiner, Maine, over half have been taken out ; iu Housa-tonic every one of the telephones was ordered out, and iu every other place a simi- i lar state of thintrs prevails. It certainly seems foolish for the company to thus en rage its patrons who have been paying it goou solid money m liberal sums. One subscriber says, it is all the American Hell s f iult, in charging $14 a year for the use in iiiMi umeuis w men ion i cost, nan that amount. The New England com pany will probably never attempt another raise i u prices. It would ruin their busi ness it attempted. The present tight has created so much hard feelimz that if the monopoly is ever broken the subscribers would desert the present company in a body for any new organization. The New England Telephone and Tele grapn company is the successor of the telephone Despatch comuanv of Boston. Suburban company. Bay State, Northern, National, Pioneer and other New England companies. It was organized under the laws ot New ork with a capital of 1'-'.- uuu.uou, a large part of which is of course, water. the American Bell Telephone company owns (ft,;iU(MJ0U of the stocK tints controlling its action. When it was organized it went throutrh New England and bought up all local exchanges that could be got, paying iu many cases very mucn more than thev were worth, its dividend earning capacity is not equal to us watered capital, consequently its stock has declined to about 30. The present increase in rates is an attempt to make it earn dividends. It is understood that they contemplate paying a dividend iu October to try to raise the price of the stock so they cau float some of the treas ii ry stock held in reserve for extra con struction account. The operations of the New England Tel ephone and Telegraph company in June anil the first six mouths ot 1SS5 were : June. Since Jan.

The American Hell Telephone company has made concessions to sub-companies aggregating about 300,000 per annum. The new rates changed the sub-companies by the Bell company are as follows : Net rentals for each telephone and transmitter per year Exchange subscribers paying 24 per minimi, or less, for exchange service, ; exceeding $24 and not exceeding 27 per annum, $$.12$ : exceeding 27 and not exceeding f30 per annum, $3.:i7:a ; exceeding Rio and not exceeding 4.'53 per annum, 83.87'i ; exceeding $33 and not exceeding $3 per annum, $4.50 ; exceed-ing$30and not exceeding $39 per annum, $5.25 ; exceeding $39 and not exceeding $42 per annum, $6; exceeding $42 and not exceeding $45 per annum, $0. 75. Where subscribers pay above $45 per annum, present net rentals will stand. Where the present contract relations and discounts give a less net rental than the net rental herein named, the present contract will be followed. The cost of instruments for each residence and business house in Burlington would therefore be $9 and $12 respectively. A Numerous Progeny. Several copies of a genealogical book entitled "Henry Doude's Descendants" compiled by Rev. W, W. Dowd of Port Chester, Westchester county. New York, have been received by persons in the fam ily line residing here. Henry Doude is supposed to be the progenitor of all the Dowds in America previous to liibaim he came from near London, England, nineteen years later than the Mayflower colony lo3'J) and settled in Guilford. Connecticut. His progeny are very numerous, the compiler having traced and authentically named aud numbered 12,370, besides many who have undoubtedly been missed. This large number are found in ten generations and those living in this town are nearly, if not quite all of the sixth, seventh and eighth. Several thousands are now living distributed through thirty-eight States and Territories with a few in three foreign countries. Some curious changes were made in the spelling of the name during the two and a half centuries. Doude, Dowd and Doud were the principal forms, though six other methods were found. The letter u was used even more or less interchangeably, but Doud appears to be the prevailing orthography. The terminal e began to be dropped in the third generation and entirely disappeared in the fourth. What can be more disagreeable, more disgusting, than to sit in a room with a person who is troubled with catarrh, and has to keep coughing and clearing his or her throat of the mucus which drops into It ? Such persons are always to be pitied if they tru to cure themselves and fail. But if they get Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy there need be no failure. Recipe Warranted to Produce an Agreeable Mother-in-law. When your mother-In-law remarks with her most martyr-like expression that ' children are not brought up much nowadavs as they used to be," and that ttiough she is "of no account wur there ha tieen a time when, as Mary Ann's mother she was considered worthy of iltcent treatment, ic. ic," do not shudder and turn pale. It is only the beginniugof one of her bilious attacks. Place your hat nrmly on your head, go boldly forth und buy her a bottle of Celery Compound. Present it aud discreetly retire for the next twenty-four hours. At the end of that time she will be knitting Sammy's stockings with her usual smile Irradiating her countenance. NO QUARTER WAS GIVEN. MOST BLOODY CONFLICT IN LIMA. A Terrible Hand to Hand Battle Between Government Troops and Revolutionist Men, Women aud Oglren Butchered. Panama, Slt. 14. An extra number of the Official Gazette has been published by order of Gen. Montoya announcing the complete subjection of the rebels and the restoration of peace throughout the country. The latest aduices from Lima give the details of the battle of Conta on the 15th ult. On the morning of that day the government troops entered the town of Conta, sixty miles from Lima, and sur-prised,a division of Gen.Caceres' army, and after a sharp action of several hours was forced to fly in disorder. Col, Torres rested, placed his men in the barracks, situated iu the principal square of the town, and mounted the machine gun in one of the towers. Caceres's artillery wirh four small field-pieces, fo; --pounders, made from lo comotive axles, opened fire from the hill at Haaychullaui, at half-past seven, and iu a. iew moments tne nrmg oecame general. The enemy descended the hills and attempted to enter the town, but were re peatedly driven back. At midday the am munition of the defenders of the city be gan to give out and thev slackened fire. Perceiving this the revolutionists brought down their guns from the heights, seeking to open fire upon them, but the re maining resources of the defenders were called upon and the artillery was forced to retire. At 2 o'clock a desperate attempt was made to drive the rebels from the town which they had then eutered at the point of the bayonet. This failed and the fight was hand to hand in the streets. No quarter was given and the most dretulful scenes of carnage occurred. Houses where some of the defeated soldiers had taken refuge were broken open, and all found within were murdered without dis stinction of age, sex or character, and then the houses were burned. A few of the most determined of the government cavalry men cut their way out and made good their escape, and Col. Torres as well. About 400 government troops perished out the loss ot the revolutionary torces not Known. VERMONT MATTKKS. A Smallpox Scare at Rutland. Kit-tie B. Haynes, a ten years old daugh ter of Joseph II. Haynes of South Royal-ton, was taken sick last week at the house of her grandfather, Dr. B. H. Haynes iu Rutland, and is now thought to be suffer ing from a mild attack of varioloid. The child went to the public schools for the first time Monday. The grandparents-noticed that she was feverish and sleep less tor a day or t wo before anv eruption appeared, but supposed that it was due to the excitement ot her new surroundings. A breaking out of the skin appeared on Friday, which was pronounced by Dr. Haynes to be the symptom of varioloid. He at once notified School Superintendent Randall in order that precaution might be taken to protect the other children from infection. The girl went to New London, Conn., on a visit a short time aco and took a trip about two weeks before the sickness on the cars, where she might have been exposed. As the eruption ac companying smallpox is almost the same in appearance with the chicken-pox pus tule, it may be that the child had nothing more severe than the latter disorder. The news of the supposed case made considerable stir Sunday, anil nervous people are of course excited. Active means are be ing taken by the school board by vaccina tion .aud other menus to prevent the spread of the disease, should it prove to be the smallpox. Waterbury. Asa C.

The Dispute Between England and Russia .Settled at Last The Loudon Press Say Little A Triumph for Russia -Other Foreign News. London, Sept. 14. The Standard pub lishes the Anglo-Russian protocol concerning the Afghan frontier. Every detail in connection with the frontier line has been settled, the only possible point of difference being the Oxus, which the English have been unable to minutely survey. M. Zeianoi, head of the original Russian frontier commission, has been deposed. The boundary defined in the Anglo-Rus sian protocol coincides nearly with that proposed by M. Lessar. Russia 'gets the whole of the oasis of Pendjeh, including Aktepe, Akrobat and Puli-Kathum. Afghanistan gets Meruchak and the whole Zulfikar Pass. Col. Kohlberg will be chief of the Russian commission, and M. Lessar next in command. Both commissions will be much smaller than those headed by Sir Peter Lumsden'and General Zeianoi. They will commence work within two months, and will probably finish their labors next August. The Russian government has made a grant of 10,000 for a new house at Askabad for Gen. Komaroff. A Loudon special to New York says : The press has little to say about the new Afghan frontier and for a good reason. It is very many miles south of the original frontier marked by England. The result is a Russian triumph. Russia is now many hundred miles nearer Herat and the Indian frontier, and she has exhibited herself to the people of all Asia by the Penjdeh incident as victor in the" only fight which occurred.
