New York, Nov. !. Sir Thomas Lipton sailed today for his home In
England. He received a surprising tribute of the e.teem In which he is
held by a great many.people, In a kind of a triumphal march thtougli sev
eral down tosvn streets, and a great reception at the American line pier,
where he went on board the St. Louis and a series of Informal receptions of
people. He also re .elved word of the presentation of the loving cup which
will be ready by Christmas for hint.
Sir Thomas and a 'ew friends left the Fifth-avenue Hotel at 8:30 o'clock
to go to the Astor House to meet the loving cup committee. All the way
to the American line pier, Sir Thomas Lipton got a reception that surpris
ed him. People lined up on the sidewalks and cheered him and many
rushed out to shake hands with Sir Thomas as his carriage slowly
Arriving at the dock he was soon surrounded by longshoremen, street
sweepers and vendors, and Sir Thomas smiled as he shook hands right and
left. Both of his hhrd were shaken by the crowd which good-naturedly
half pulled him out of the carriage.
Sir Thomas and his party ascended to the second floor of the American
line pier, where a platform had been erected. The long floor had been de
corated with banners and bunting and a large crowd had assembled.
At the banquet platform was a lloral representation of the Shamrock
with hull of Immortales and sails of white silk. The sea was made of
white and yellow chrysanthemums and red roses. The vessel was four
feet long. At the masthead1 floated the flag of the Royal Ulster Yacht
When Sir Thomas and the others had ascended the platform ex-Mayor
William L. Strong, Chairman of the Loving Cup committee, signalled for
silence and John M. Beach, one of the Committeemen, formally advised
Sir Thomas of the loving cup that Is to be presented to him, adding that
he and every one else trusted that Sir Thomas would soon return.
Sir Thomas was cheered half a dozenitlmes before lie was allowed to
reply, when he said:
'ft Is Impossible for me to convey at once my feelings at this moment.
This extraordinary reception that I have received has gone to my heart.
The great kindliness shown me here has endeared the American people to
me, and I am proud to be held In such esteem by you.
"I will always cherish the cup which Is to follow me, and I will prize it,
I assure you, much more than I would the America's cup.
"As you know I came here with designs on one of your most valued
possessions. I did not accomDllsh mv nurnnte. Rut I inv. K-.n

Washington, Nov. i. (San Francisco to
p. m.) The negotiations for the partition
of the Samoan Islands are proceeding rap
Idly and officials here would not be sup
rised if a final agreement was reached In
the near future.
The discussion which Is going on In
London with the cooperation of the au
thorities here and In Berlin has brought
out certain essential features on which all
three powers, Great Britain, Germany
and the United States appeared to be
In the outset it is stated that the deter
mination was reached that the tripartite
government of the group should come to
an end and that not more than two powers
and preferably one, should govern the Is
land. It soon developed that an agreem
ent was not likely to be reached giving
the entire group to one power, but the
chances seemed good for an agreement
that two powers divide the islands, thus
giving a dual government In place of the
present unwieldy tripartite agreement.
It stemed to be generally accepted by
the negotiators that the United States
would De one of the two powers to be re
presented and that the Island of Tutullla
on wllkll the harbor of Prttrn-Pjirn Is Inc.

United Mates. It Is understood that the

During the tests of Marconi's

United States government,
Mr. Cross was on board the
New York. The test was very
exacting and proved beyond
question the practical capacity
of the system.
iMarconi says there will be
no trouble in connecting Kauai
with Honolulu. Owing to the
distance between Oahu and
Kauai, it was at first feared
by the promoters that Kauai
would have to be left out. It
Is now assured, however, that
all the islands of the group
can be brought in close com

Marconi also states that only
