COLUMBIA WINS AGAIN; Leads Defender Into Newport by Over Eighteen Minutes. RUN WAS TWENTY-TWO MILES -- Cruise Is Ended.
NEWPORT, Aug. 12.—The New
York Yacht Club squadron is again at anchor in the harbor to-night, and so far
as the club runs are concerned, the cruise of 1899 is over. The last run of
twenty-two miles today, from New Bedford to this port, was not much of an
improvement over yesterday's flukiness, for while the wind held on longer, the
yachts ran into soft spots and five miles from the finish ,the entire fleet was
becalmed for half an hour.
