At the Clark mill, where tbe ten inch was started for the first time yesterday and where everything except a small eight inch mill is'now being operated, it is asserted that more skilled men are offering their serv- ices than can be accommodated.

The contest between the rival Phila- delphia factions for' recognition by the convention resulted in' a harmony agree- ment between the recognized leaders of the two elements.

It occurred just as the Con- stitution-was rounding the'first mark. Bo|h yachts had come up from the.home tnufk on a broad reach with a southwest wind, the Constitution leading by about two minutes. As they approached the stake boat black clouds which had been gathering in' Uie northwest brought witlr them a Bmall rain squall and sudden change' of wind. The Constitution was able to turn on the southwest wind and immediately after take the northwester,. which lifted *T™—=TTT—tr.i;> 1.1:;——• i.l.liv ' - >—ii:..- - -- - J .'

This gave' the Constitution an oppor- tunity to take advantage of the westerly wind which followed out in - the sound, while jhe Columbia lay almost becalmed ii the mark. This pettled t the race, for thereafter the Columbia Was hopelessly out of it. The contest of speed was alto- gether Jn the first leg, while the wind, which was at all times light, held true. On every leg .the new boat gained and maintained her reputation as a won- derfully. fast yacht in soft airs. But the Columbia, with her perfect sails,, was also going fast, and in the first; 15 miles tbe new boat only made up 27 seconds over her time allowance.
