CAPTAIN RHODES SELECTING HIS CREW
FROM BATSHORE SAILORS.
One advantage in having a local skipper in
charge of an American defender of the Cup is that
he knows wherq to get sailors to handle the craft.
One of the troubles of former years has been that
the people in charge of the arrangements seemed
to think they had to go all the way to Maine to
get the requisite hands for the boat, and at various
times doubts have been expressed as to the ability
to get the right kind. Captain Rhodes never had
any doubts of this sort, and in a conversation
which occurred before the Lipton challenge ar
rived he said: "I never could understand why they
went so far away to pick a crew for a defending
yacht. I certainly would engage to get as handy
a crew as any one could wish, without travelling
to Maine, and right here round the Long Island
shores. I refer to the men whose work I know
men who are good stuff all throuerh."
Captain Rhodes is now making up his crew in
the neighborhood of East. Wett and Centre
Moriches, where the people feel not a little com
plimented at the selection being made among them,
and they are pleased that Captain Rhodes Is a
Bayshore man. and thus knows the quality of the
young sailors along the same coast
A member of the n'ew-Tork Yacht Club said
yesterday, while speaking of the crew that Mr.
Duncan will have under him:
A good many of this crew will no doubt come
out of the oyster boat trade, and no better selec
tion could be made. In eftect they are all yacht
sailors, and handle their boats to perfection. It
has been quite a custom to sneer at the oyster
boat material, but I have been often sailing in
cruising yachts that were beaten by cleverly sailed
oyster boats. They will need training for the set
ting of the spinnaker and, .in fact, all the sails
which are larger than they have been accustomed
to handle; but that is all they have to learn, be
cause for yacht racing they already know every
point in the game, and In many respects they are
better than deep sea sailors off big ships, all of
whom have a great deal to learn when they come
to the yachts, which they cannot acquire on board
big square riggers.
CENTREBOARD DEFENDER TO BE BUILT
Qulney. Mass., Dec. 21.— C. C. Hanley, of the
Hanley Construction Company, of this city, builders
of many fast yachts, among them the American
defender Genesee In the Canadian Cup races of
1899 and 1900 at Chicago and Toronto, has entered
the America's Cup defender lists, and will form a
syndicate to build a wooden centreboard yacht to
compete in the trial races to decide which yacht
6hall defend the America's Cup against Sir Thomas
Llpton's Shamrock. Mr. Hanley admits that the
syndicate Is under way and that the yacht will
probably be built by the Hanley Works, at Quincy
Point. Mr. Hanley said to-day:
Since the time of the Vigilant. American and
English designers have been trying to defeat keel
yachts with keel yachts. The Vigilant was an at
tempt at a half and half boat, being neither keel
nor centreboard, but a combination of both. The
result la. in trying to beat keels with keels, that
the challenging and defending yachts are coming to
be alike as two peas.
Mr. Hanley holds that the history of Interna
tional races shows the superiority of the centre
board type, although in late years, for lack of any
one to push that kind, the keel boat has come to
the front. He says several men are ready this
year to build and enter a centreboard yacht in the
international contest, believing that it will outsail
any keel boat in Its class that can be built.
DEFENCE OF THE CANADA'S CUP.
CHICAGO YACHTSMEN BADLT IN NEED OF A
Chicago. Dec. 21 (Special).— The yachtsmen here
who have the international challenge for the Cana
da's Cup on their hands are in a dilemma about
possessing no trial boat to test the defence craft
now to be built. There has been some talk of re
rigging the Prairie as a Jib and mainsail yacht to
supply the want, but as the Prairie was a failure
two seasons ago. It ia suggested that she has be
come no better through disuse. Commodore Charles
H. Thome of the Chicago Yacht Club has helped
the matter by purchasing the Briar, a 85 footer,
which was finished too late for the trial races for
this cup In 1599. The bulb on the fin of the Briar
was found wrong end foremost when she was fin
ished, but this has been remedied, and she will be
a possibility for 1901.
Unfortunately, the Briar is an unknown quantity,
and the Canadians have four fast and well proven
thirty-fives with which to try out their new chal
lengers. It has therefore been proposed to buy one
of these, the Beaver, to act as a trial horse. The
Beaver raced for the cup In the last contest and
is extremely fast, although she lost to the Genesee.
At the recent meeting of the Chicago Yacht Club
the building fund for the new proposed clubhouse
received a good start in having $6,000 subscribed,
and it was thought that the balance of the $20,000
required would be easily obtained. The members
say that as .he Royal Canadian Yacht Club, at
Toronto, entertained the Chicagoans in a fine club
house at the last races in 1599, the defending club
should have a better headquarters than at present
for the return entertainment.
'"'what boston yachtsmen think.
Boston, Dec. 21.— 8. B. Crownlnshield. who is the
designer of the Lawsor. Cup defender, said he
would like to see the Hanley boat built, as it would
be of Immense advantage in determining whether
an out and out centreboard boat was still able to
compete successfully with a boat of the Ueel type.
Kenneth Horton. a prominent yachtsman, expresses
the opinion that such a yacht as Hanley proposes
is impraotlcable for the defence of the America's
Cup, as she would pound herself to pieces in a sea
way. General Charles J. Paine, who three times
successfully defended the America's Cup with cen
treboard yachts, declared that he thought it would
be wise to have such a boat.
WATER POLO TEAMS EXONERATED. _
An important meeting of the Registration Com
mittee of the Metropolitan Association was held
last night at the Astor House. At the end of the
meeting the following announcement was made:
The Registration Committee exonerates the mem
bers of the Knickerbocker Athletic Club and the
New-York Athletic Club water polo teams from
any attempt at fraud. There was no evidence to
prove that an unfair game was played, or a game
that would allow an inferior team to win.
The game in question was played last spring at
the Madison Square Garden, and was between the
Knickerbocker Athletic Club and the New-York
Athletic Club water polo teams. It was for the
water polo championship, and was won by the
.TORPAV BIONS TO BOX M'OOVERN.
"Ken" Jordan has accepted the offer of the Na
tional Sporting Club of London and has signed ar
ticles to fight "Terry" McGovern. The agreement
calls for a twenty round bout at 122 pounds for a
purse of 13.750, of which the winner Is to receive
$3,000 and the loser $760. If McGovern consents to
meet Jordan the flsjht will take place on June 3.
The fighters will veigh in at 2 o'clock on the day

FOX HILLS SECURES DAVID BROWN. EX
CHAMPION OF ENGLAND, AS ITS
The rumors that have be^n c:rr>r. 4 f«r " -'-•.'
wee.fcs regarding the plarn of the Fox Hills Golf
Club culminated yesterday In the definite announce
ment that David Brown, one of the best known
professionals on the other side, has been secured »s
permanent professional at the- Fox Hills course.
Brown won the open championship of England In
18SS, and since that time has occupied a high place
among the leading professionals abroad. Vardon
regards him as one of the best men whom he has
ever met. and It was largely on his recommendation
that Brown was engaged. The Fox Hills players
have been on the lookout for a man who could take
charge of their course, and have considered scores
of applications for the place. A» soon as It waa
learned from Vardon that Brown was open to en
gagement, however, these applications were put
aside, and negotiations were at once opened with
Brown's friends abroad. Yesterday a cablegram
was received stating that the club's offer would be
accepted and that Brown would sail within the.
next six weeks. The news waa received wltl* gen
eral satisfaction by those members who heard It
last night, and the general opinion seems to be
that under his competent tutelage the club will as
sume v an added Importance In the metropolitan
This step is only one of many now In contempla
tion by this popular organization. Since the new
management came into control efforts have been
directed toward making the Fox Hills course a
general gathering place for New-Yorkers, and its
accessibility and natural advantages are relied
upon to make the project a success. Club smokers
are to be held every Saturday night throughout
the season, at which plans will be discussed for a
vigorous opening in the spring, as well as several
important alterations in the course. The second of
these smokers will take place this evening.
Golf above Mason and Dixon's line Is more or
less of a lottery after the first week in December.
Yesterday's snow Is only a sample of the weather
with which local players have to contend, and
from which so many seek an escape in the popu
lar tournaments of the South. Lakewood golfers
were wondering yesterday whether "snow rules"
would be declared for their Christmas Day handi
cap. In which Travis and Graham have promised
to appear, and preparations are being made to sup
ply the competitors with red colored balls In case
"white greens" prevailed. To-day's qualifying round
at Dyker Meadow for the cup presented by Dr. Will
iam Jarvie may be postponed on account of snow,
and several other local matches will suffer for a
The Newark Athletic Club may withdraw from
the East Jersey Coast Golf League next season.
The relations between Its team and those of the
other clubs in the League have not been alto
gether satisfactory, and many of the Newark
players are in favor of withdrawing. When the
team championship was held at Plalnfield this sea
son some of the Newark golfers were protested as
not being regular members of the club, and the
feeling caused by that incident is said to be the
reason for the move.

THE DOINGS OF CLUBS IN MANHATTAJt
Albert R. Shattuck. president of the AutoaaoMfcs
Club of America, said yesterday to a Tribune re
porter that he would probably not be able to say
for several days where the new quarters for the
club will be. While the Board of Governors, who
were empowered to take final action on this ques
tion, will not yet make public their deliberation on
the subject, a Tribune reporter recently learned
that the new home of the organization will be Bear
Flfty-ninth-st. and Fifth-aye.
At least twelve machines are expected to be in
the first formal run of the Long Island Automobile
Club, which will be held to-morrow. Among those
who will probably go on the run are Louis R.
Adams, president of the organization; Charles W.
Spurr, Jr., Robert Darling, A. R. Pardlngton, ~W. K.
Freeman. Frank G. Webb and L. A. Hopkins. The)
start will be made at 10 a. m. from the clubhouse,
at No. 552 State-st.. Brooklyn, and the run will
probably be to the Crescent Athletic Club, in the
Shore Road. If the weather is unfavorable tho rat
may be postponed.
Many of the active members of the Automobile
Club of Brooklyn are in favor of the eeaselldatlort
of their organization and the Long Island Auto
mobile Club. In hope of bringing about sneh •
combination, the Automobile Club recently mada
overtures to the Long Island club. According to a
report, there is little likelihood of the clubs aaWbsß.
It is said that this movement might be successful
If the question as to which is the oldest club waa
not considered by any person interested.

PROGRESS OF ATHLETICS AT CORXELL.
Ithaca, N. T.. Dee. 21 (Special).— The Cornell Com*
mtttee on Football has called a meeting of promt
nent alumni to be held here during the holiday*
at which the coaching policy for nest season wH
be discussed. There Is a strong sentiment tn flavor
of having nothing but alumni coaching next year.
and It is possible that Percy Houghton. of Harvard,
will not return. The football authorities appreciate
his good work, but would like to put the fllisj
system of coaching In the hands of undergraduates.
The difficulty seems to be in finding a man of suf
ficient ability to take charge of the team. The>
alumni coaches who served under Houghton last
year did good work coaching for their respective
positions, but are hardly fitted for assuming the*
responsibilities of head coach even if they could
spare the time.
The Cornell hookey team has had a week of good
ice. and developed some form for the games watch
will be played during January. A rink has been
erected on Beebee Lake on the university campus.
Besides the games with the new Central New-York
League Cornell will play Independent games with
Pennsylvania, Brown. Yate and other colleges.
