, TH3S BBOOKLYN PATLY EAffiLJE. STEW YORK, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1899. 39 SHOWS SPEED. Covers Twenty - five Miles, at an ' Average of Nearly Eleven Knots an Hour. COURSE REGULARLY MARKED. ' ' Jjlie, as Usual, Avoided a Triangular , f' : Route The Performance a ' V.. ... Creditable One. - The tuning up trip ot the Shamrock yester - flay was beyond question the most severe trial she has been subjected to so far, ' and she etbod It in a niost'ioreditable manner. Not only oici sue root faster, iut she covered a longer aamae tKin Mthirrn lfh,.h !,.r.tnfn - ., - - "ww.v.v the oourBO - was only two legs instead of a frknW . m, - w - .. T . " , ."d reacn along the Jersey coast; and the second a broad reach back. 'Some1 surprise, has been expressed by yachtsmen over the undoubted fact that Mr. jrjLte is so fond of these two points of sailing that he almost Invariably takes them when he can, to the almost total disregard of the windward point and running. The wind wass out of tho northeast, Just in the right direc tion for either a windward and return, or a triangular course. "The latter has not yet been tried by the challenger and yachtsmen generally were sure she would try it yesterday. 1 Halt a dozen steam yachts took advantam of the beautiful day to steam out and see her tried out In beatinK. but thev were all riiwin pointed in this, although they did witness a beautiful exhibition of speed. Her first leg, of .12$& mile's . on a close reach, was made in 1 hour and 8 minutes, the return on a broad reacn being covered; in 1' hour. 13 minutes miking a total of 2 hours 21 minutes for the miles, an average of about a mile in minutes, or a little less than 11 miles an hour. This, in a breeze ranging from 13 to 16 Knots an nour, was very last footing. When the sun rose yesterday it at once be came apparent that it woutd be an ideal sail ing day. A iair sailing breeze was blowing irom a point. a uttje nor.ta - oi east, there was not a cioua m. tne sky ana the aea was un usually smooth. The" usual early morning naze was very Hgm, ana gave promise of dissipating early, and there were Indications of a steady freshening wind. Hverythlng was activity aboard the Sham rock. The bobstay which had been strained ana out short on the day previous had been repaired, and sailors were early at work bending it on. By 9 o'clock evervthlne was tn readiness for the start, but it was 10 o'clock before the housings were removed from the mainsail and the sailors received the command to walk away with the halliards. After . the big piece of canvas had been sweated up, it was seen that it was the same which she wore on Friday. The tug James A. Lawrence, which had been crippled on Friday by her firemen striking, had procured new men and was on band again to take her usual post. She parsed a hawser to the challenger and towed her around the bar. Here the tow wae dropped and Shamrook, breaking out her jib. Jogged over toward the Long' Island shore, waiting for the Erin, which was delayed, to join her. About 11 o'clock Erin steamed out, and the fleet shaped its course for the Scotland Lightship. Here Erin hove to, northeast of the light, and the Lawrence started on her mission of logging oft the course, due south, and along the Jersey coast. Shamrook, in the meantime, set her big clubtopaall and the preparatory signal having been given, commenced Jockeying for a start. A big reaching staysail was run up in stops, and' Judging his time well,' Captain Hogarth Jibed,' broke out his staysail, and crossed the .line' only a few seconds after the signal whistle, at 11:60. She at once broke out her jib topsail and as the wind had easted a trifle in the last half hour, trimmed her sails pretty well in, and with boom to starboard, started on her first leg, on a moderately close reach. The wind had freshened a bit by this time, tand was blowing a good 12 knot breeze. At first she did not seem to foot fast. Her sails , Beamed to be trimmed too flat, but after they had been eased a bit, there was a perceptible lnorease In her speed. Her sails were setting magnificently and there was not even the suggestion .of a wrinkle in any of them. It was noticed that In all excepting her club topsail there was more' bulge than has appeared before, which suggested that they had been reout lately. The club topsail eat almost as flat as. a board and was not so snug down to the gaff as Is usual in English sails.. In fact. It looked more like a sail of American than ot English manufacture. Her angle of keel, too, was considerably greater than heretofore. Her crew were all piled up to windward, and even then she was nearly awash. 1 When about half way down the leg, the wind freshened and hauled due east, with a suspicion of something in it, closing her reef a bit and helping her footing. In thj meantime the tug Lawrence had reached a point Just beyond Long Branch and opposite the Elberon Lite' Savine Station, where she hove to to make the turn. - Erin,. and two or three other Bteatu craffwere following the chaUenger at a respectful distance. ' , Just before reaching the Lawrence Shamrock doused her Jib topsail and reaching stay - Ball, and cdxning about, rounded the mark, .eased her sheet well off to port, broke out a working staysail, which had been run up In tops previously, and started on a fairly broad reach to retrace her course. The wind, which had been gradually freshening, was now blowing about fifteen miles an hour, and she at once felt Its force, plowing through the sea at .racehorse speed. Her crew were piled up to windward and several of them were ordered iway aft to lift her, head. Ab the point of sailing neared that of a run, her tendency to bury forward, which has been spoken of by the Eagle before, became more manifest.. This was evidently appreciated by Captain Hogarth, as evidenced by his ordering so many of the crew aft. .This failing, naturally caused her to kick up quite a fuss forward and then was perceptible after wav. She made great speed, despite this, and as Captain Hogarth kept her to - her work, she wan awash continually, at times the water showing a foot or more on the deck. After having gone about six miles in this Tfay, Captain Hogarth tried a new plan. He broke out a baby Jib topsail to add its lifting power to the headsails, at the same time slacking his main sheet until the leech of the big sail was shaking and was never rap full. The experiment worked weli, so far as lifting her head was concerned, but she footed - so much slower that although the wind was stronger than on the first leg, it took her five minutes more to make the distance. After the captain commenced easing up on the mainsail, her angle of heel was not so great and her decks were not awash for the balance of the journey. At 2:11 o'clock she finished, tacking around the Scotland Lightship, dousing her jib topsail and heading northeaBt. toward the Sandy Hook Lightship. In a few moments she went about on the port tack, cased sheets and headed toward the Lowrence. After speaking vue iuk, sue was again close Hauled, and beat out toward the Sandy Hook Lightship again. Sho made several boards, finally easing her boom broad off to starboard and lowering her spinnaker boom to port. She then broke out her splnnake" and came racinp down before the wind toward the bar. She ("fcept this point until 3:31 o'clock, when she came up In the wind, took In her sninnnirrr doused her big club topsail, jib and staysail and lowering her peak, took a tow line from the Lawrence and went to her anchorage, followed by the Erin.

Exchange Chess Club, anil Otto E. Glese, Caxton Chess Club, will hold a meeting on Ootober 15 to consider the reorganization o the league In anticipation of the opening of the winter chess season. There has been some question as to whether the league would continue to exlBt, doubts having arisen on that point because ot the somewhat unsatisfactory wind up of the second season last tprlng. A little 111 feeling was aroused among several of the olubs toward the end of the championship tournament over tho management of certain details, this beln - accentuated by the rivalry of - the teams then en - g? r;(l In an Interesting finish for the trophy. It Is thought, however, that these misunderstandings have been lost sight of during the summer and that all the clubs will unitj tbls fall in an effort to preserve, the organization. The Dutch Arm3 Club, which won the charaplonshlp last season, the ox - champion Exchange Club and the PIUs - bury CheSB club are all prepared to enter their teams In caee another tournament is provided for. Hose vs. Chittenden. A match of seven irames un Is In nmi,T.o.a i Crescent Athletic Club between Frederick Rose cnes3 cnampion oi that organization, and S. B Chittenden, another of the leading experts. So fat - four games have been nonrpsrarl wity, ,,..! suits, the score standing now at two points each The odd feature of the play has been the circumstance of each player scoring the game Initiated by the openings 6uppofied to be the opponent's stronff point. Chittenden had th - e choice of opening In the first game, selected a queen's gnmblt declined and lost. N"xt came a Ponzianl offered by Roee and he tn turn lost. Chittenden then essayed a Ruy Ijopez, another pet of his and dropped a second point, but squared hlmpe'lf by defeating Rose In the fourth game by adopting successfully the Petroff defense. Napoleon and the Turk. Napoleon, so hlBtory has it, was alwavs an enthusiastic chess player, but he was not such an expert in generalship on the mimic battlefield that he was able to avoid the frequent recurrence of a Waterloo. In fact, the quality of his chess would not entitle him nowadays to recognition as a master. At the time that the French conquerer entered Berlin, in 1806, the then famous chess automaton, owned by a Mr. Maelzel, was resurrected and fitted up for business. Napoleon determined upon having I a tilt with the Turk, characteristically con fident of success. The following interesting account is given by an eye witness of the episode: "The Emperor, on this occasion, sicnlfied his wish to do battle with the Turk, and ac cordingly Maelzel arranged a second table. near that of the Turk, proposing to repeat the moves on both tables. This was Maeizel s usual mode of exhibition. Napoleon, charac teristically overstepping the barrier which separated the Turk from the audience, struck his hand on the automaton's chess board and exclaimed, 'I will not contend, at a distance! We fight face to face.' A grave nod indicated the Turk's assent, and the game began. The Emperor was disastrously vanquished. Shortly afterward a second exhibition was ordered. On this memorable occasion the Emperor placed a large magnet on the automaton 9 board. Maelzel smilingly moved the iron, so as not to embarrass the game. The Turk played on with his usual skill ; the fatal echee (check) was heard again and again, and a second time Napoleon was defeated. "The pieces were no sooner arranged, than the Emperor quietly removed a shawl from theshoulders of a lady near by, and with great care enveloped the face, the neck and the body of the Turk, completing his arrangements with an exclamation of satisfaction. With a muffled nod the Moslem agreed to the new conditions, and this third time, also, victory declared itself for the Turk. For a moment the Emperor regarded his antagonist, then, with a gesture of scorn, he swept the chessmen from the board, and crying, 'Bagatelle!' strode over knight and pawn and so out of the room." FALL REGATTA DECLARED OIT. Williamsburgh Yacht Club "Will Hold a Clambake Instead. The annual fall regatta of the Williamsburgh Yacht Club, which was scheduled to take place to - day, has been declared off and in its place a clam bake and chowder party will be held at Little Neck,.

ROCKTON'S ALGERIA STAKES. The Largest Crowd of the Meeting Witnesses Excellent Sport at Gravesend. In the presence of the largest crowd of the meeting. Imp, the greatest race horse this oounty has ever produced, administered a decisive defeat to old Ben Holladay at GraveB - end yesterday afternoon. Imp's performance was a remarkable one, for she conceded six pounds to Ben Holladay in the second special at a mile and a half, and leading from the start, won cleverly by three parts of a length In the fast time of 2:34. This is a new record for the track, which Is at least two seconds slower than the Sheeps - head Bay course. Ben Holladay was a strong odds on choice. He la a great favorite with the public, and the 3 to S offered by the pencillers was eagerly accepted by his supporters. Imp was second choice at 4 to 1, while Previous was at 6 to 1, and the Bachelor, 15 to a. Pete Clay had the mount on Imp, and he simply waited with the mare in front for the whole mile and a half.. She could have won much more easily, but Clay sat still through the stretch and allowed Ben Holladay, who was under the strongest kind of persuasion, to get to her saddle girth, as the finish line was reached. The ovation tendered Imp when she galloped back to the stand was a most pronounced one and she was heartily cheered and applauded. Ben Holladay beat the Bachelor ten lengths for the place. Previous losing third money by a neck. The Algeria stakes for 2 year olds was nothing but a gallop for Rockton, which seems to improve with eaoh race. Spencer secured a good position as the flag fell and when the stretch was reached came away and won by a length, Kilmarnock, who was poorly ridden by Maher. paine very fast as soon as he had clear going - and secured the place by a length from Modrlne. Coburg ran prominently for half a mile, but tired badly in the run home. The hurdle race, a handicap at two miles, was contested by a very ordinary lot of jumpers. Hardy C. was installed favorite, Marshall second choice and Mr. Stoffel third in demand. These three had the finish among them. Bob White set the pace for a mile, when Hardy C. went to the front and led to the last jump, where he was challenged by Mr. Stoffel. In a hard drive the latter secured the decision by a length. Marshall waa ten lengths back. Abuse, favorite for the econd race, over the short six furlong course, was forced to yield to the superior energy of Belle of Memphis, which won handily by a length and a half. Abuse was two lengths in front of Sou - chon. Satin Slipper received a bad send off and was never prominent. Rare Perfume, the public choice for the mile and a sixteenth race, was so wretchedly ridden by Wilson that he never had a chance to show his speed, Wilson placed Rare Perfume in more pockets than Is contained In a shop lifter's overcoat. Hardly, at 15 to 1, won ridden out by a neck from Maximo Gomez, with Hurricane a good third. The closing event, a five furlong dash for maiden two year olds, was a very open betting race. Vesuvian, Kilogram and Mondono finished as named, lengths apart, after a sh irp tussel from the eighth pole home Knight Banneret was jumped on and badly cut on the off hind leg. The stewards of the Jockey Club held a meeting during the afternoon. August Belmont, James R. Keene, J. H. Bradford, Andrew Miller, James Galway and F. R. Hitchcock were present. James R. Keene, F. R. Hitchcock and James Galway were appointed stewards for the Westchester Racing Association meeting. The report of the stewards of the Brooklyn Jockey Club in the matter of the suspension of Jockeys Wedderstrand and O'Connor was approved. The suspension was not contin ued bevond the Brooklyn meeting. ine treasurer was authorized to pay the bill for professional services rendered to Jockey George Anderson and to charge the same to the jockey fund.

Won the English Derby in 1881, Only to Be Easily Beaten Here. The death of Iroquois removes from the turf a horse whose principal claim to fame was that he was the only American racer to win the Derby, the blue ribbon of the English turf. Iroquois' victories in that greatest of the English races occurred in 1881. He was owned by and ran In the colors of Pierre Lorillard. Bred at the Erdenheim stud - by Aristldes Welch, he sold for a song as a yearling and taken as a 2 year old to England. In addition to the Derby Iroquois also won the Prince of Wales Stakes, a mile and five furlongs, the last five furlongs being uphill, and then followed up his victorious career by winning the St. Leger. In the Guineas Iroquois was beaten. Iroquois was brought back to America in 1882 and in his maiden attempt at racing here was beaten easily by the Bard, at Monmouth Park. At the close of his racing career Iroquois was sold to General W. H. Jackson and he was placed in the stud at the Belle Meade farm. There he became the sire of a number of good winners, including the winner of the Brighton Cup this year, Bangle, a noted performer, over a distance of ground, Iroquois Belle and Windemere. GOOD SPORT AT GUTTENBURG. Straight Heats and Fast Time the Order of the Day Darkness Spoils the Last Race. One of the best cards yet offered at the Guttenburg track since it has been used for trotting was that hung up yesterday afternoon by the Hudson County Driving Association. The events included two amateur and three professional events and straight heats, with fast time, were the order ot the day. Interest was naturally centered on the free for all, the last race on the card, for which there were four starters. The flret heat fell to Monopole, by a neck from Will Kerr, Bessie BonehlU and B. B., a veteran pacer of high wheel days, bolng almost distanced. In the second heat they got mixed up and Bessie Bonehill was the lucky one. At this point darkness interfered and the race was declared finished. Monopole got first money and Bessie Bonehill second. Topaz, who won the second race in straight heats, was barred from taking a prize on account of his trotting in a professional race last July, the rules of the race calling for horses that had not started in a professional event this year. The fourth race, which fell to Honest John, might have been a different story had Myrtle H. had a racing wagon. The four - wheeler she drew weighed almost 200 pounds and that, with Mr. Hill, who weighs 175 pounds, in the seat, was too much for the speedy bay mare.

A meeting of the club was held at 1,123 Broadway on Friday evening, at which it was decided to arrange another meeting in October. The dates settled on are October 24 to 27. four days in all. BOWLERS' LONG TOTJR. Greater New York Team to Go as Far West as Utah.. Preparations are being made for the fifth annual tour of the Greater New York Bowlers. The team will again tour the country under the management of Sam Karpf. They will start from New York about January S, and after spending a few weeks in tho leading Eastern and Southern cities, will proceed westward as far us Salt Lake City, Utah, and North as far as Minneapolis. So far the list of players comprise W. Cordes, Captain Otto Foege, individual champion of Greater New York; Sam Holdon, N. Thyn, N. Jackson and Phil Wolf, who won the championship of America, while en route last season. The re training members will be selected in a short time. WHO CAN BEAT THIS EELP With eah succeeding season comes a fresh crop of fish stories which are intended to surpass those of other years, but from Flushing Bay comes one that is vouched for by no less than half a dozen members of the Scawanhaka Boat Club. For several weeks eels have been running in tne bay and from time to time tales of bis fellows that, fell to the lot of Itinerant fishermen have appeared, embellished with certain facts that presumably were added to attach Interest to the matter. Yesterday afternoon, William F. Egan, superintendent of the Seawanhaka Boat Club, went out after the . slippery wrigglers and on his return brought home a record breaker. His eelshlp was two feet nine inches In length, almost six Inches in girth and weighed two pounds, eleven ounces an hour after it was caught. Moreover, three members of the club made a meal of the eel after it had been prepared by Mr. Egan. EDDIE MCDUFFEE IS HERE. Boston Cyclist, Who Will Essay a Mile a Minute on the Road, in Town. HIS WONDERFUL PACING MOTOR, Walter Smith's World's Record Min - eola Fair's Big Cycling Programme. Eddie McDuffee and the steam motor tandem behind which he will etsay to ride a mile a minute on the road hereabout, arrived here yesterday and both are quartered at Blumo's Hotel, on Ffatbush avenue, near Wil - link entrance to the park. The favored few who saw the machine assembled after Its trip and propped up, so that its power could be shown, have to - day no doubts but that the affair is the most wonderful of its kind ever constructed. Charley Murphy, who rode behind a locomotive on a prepared board track, was among the group and he appeared to be very solicitous about his record. If McDuffee can rollow the thing, and he is perfectly sanguine of doing this, the 57 4 - 5 seconds mark will go by the board and Murphy's record will be eclipsed ln many ways. McDuffee will essay the ride upon an unprepared road and this will be vastly different from any ride upon a board track. Again, the Bostouian will not have the benefit of the big wind shield that the hood behind Murphy's pacing car made. The steam motor, while really a very complicated affair and bulky from the Bide view, will be no more of a wind breaker than any of the motor machines seen on the track here this season. The vicinity is now being scoured for a suitable site for the ride and when this is found the trial will bo made. If the mark goes as low as 1:10 it will be a truly marvelous feat, but will not satisfy either McDuffee or hi3 manager, Charley Culver, for both are confident of touching the minute. The machine has already - done 1:16 on a rather poor road and McDuffee held this pace without any difficulty whatever. McDuffee yesterday offered to lend his motor to Murphy for a trial, free of charge, and to wager that he could not stay behind It a quarter of a mile. Murphy declined. McDuffee, the young man who will make this trial, is well known in the cycle racing world and Is an idol on the tracks near Boston. If anyone is entitled to the wreath of champion cyclists it should be he, for in two years he has met with but two defeats. Last year he was not beaten in either paced or un - paced races and he rode nearly twenty - five. This season he has won every unpaced race, literally riding circles around Major Taylor, and has lost but two paced events, both due to accidents to his' pacing machines. He rides a wheel of the clialnless type, geared to the astounding height of 135, with a six inch crank. This proves better than anything else his wonderful pedal pushing power. The motor pacer is built by an automobile - making firm and its chief claim lies in Its boiler, which Is of a secret pattern. The pow er, as has been stated, is steam and the heat is derived from vaporized gasoline. The ma chine carries six gallons of raw gasoline la one tank Just ln the rear of the steersman. Counterbalancing this tank Is one with about sixty pounds air pressure to force the gasoline Into use. This fuel is vaporized by heat and Is thon forced under the boiler, where it is Ignited In about a hundred Jets of flame that pass in and around the three hundred or more small copper tubes in which the steam is made. The water is carried in a big tank under the steersman and can be pumped out of this tank or back again in an Ingenious manner. - The gasoline flow is controlled by a bevel geared device for which the gears from the rear wheel of a chainless bicycle have been used. The speed of the machine is regulated by the engineer on the rear seat, simply by turning the right grip of his handle bars and this arrangement is particularly clever in de tail. The gearing is equal that. Is the rear wheel revolves once at every piston stroke, for both front and rear sprockets are of the same size. The chain connecting them is of a light weight that is marvelous, considering the power applied. There is a guaranteed revolution of 2.700 a minute, which would mean two thousand seven hundred times the circumference of the rear wheel, or to be more exact, about two and a half miles a minute. Allowing for the weight, McDuffee calculates that when a perfectly smooth and straight course has been found, that the machine will travel faster than any human beings have ever before been carried on tho earth's surface, probably faster than any balloon has ever yet traveled. The horse power Is calculated at 4; and the stroke of the pistons is 5 Inches. By the process of evaporlzation, complete combustion is obtained, and there was no spark, smoke or perceptible odor to be noticed even after the machine had been run ln a closed room yesterday for several minutes. The waste heat 'is carried up over the rear rider's left, shoulder. The draught Is obtained from a scoop at the bottom of the boiler, while the exhaust is down, so that the steam is swept away underneath the man who Is following the pace. Every bit of the mechanism, including the eccentrics. Is ball bearing, and in numberless ways the affair is unique in construction. McDuffee has himself reconstructed many parts of the affair. The smoothness with which the machine Is operated is proven by the trial yesterday. For this the rear wheel was propped up about two inches, and when running at much over what would have been a mile a minute on the ground there was so little jump that McDuffee merely Readied it with one hand. There was surprisingly little noise. The crew who managed the motor have bo - come so proficient that they have ridden the thing at a 1:48 pace for a quarter of a mile on the track with their hands from the steering bars. The engineer, upon whom the safety of the machine depends, is little Saunders of the old time tandem crew of Mayo and Saunders. The scene of the trial Is yet to be determined upon and will not be known until later in the week. There has been some rumor that the cycle pathR would be chosen, but this cannot be substantiated, for McDuffee thinks they have not a good enough surface. It was behind this machine that McDuffee made the present world's record of 1:28 for the mile on a track. Hamilton Wheelmen's Race Meet at Maspeth. A big holiday crowd attended the Hamilton Wheelmen's fall race meet, which was heli yesterday at Maspeth. The feature of the day was the riding of James F. Gregory of the Bush wick cyclers, who made his first appearance on tho track since his severe fall at tho Brevoort Wheelmen's races in the spring. Gregory won the half mile, one mile and threo miles open and with bis clubmate, Jenklnson, took the tandem event.
