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.
