WATSONS PLANS FOR CHAM.KXtiKK
FORESHADOWED IN BYBARITA.
It is generally admitted that the new W-footer
Sybarlta foreshadows WatsonV plans pagnVflßl the
challenger which he Is to produce for Sir Thomas
Upton. She is exactly the stse of a cutter Cup
challenger, and. although yawl rigged, was un
doubtedly produced as a test boat. The boat Is
therefore of peculiar importance, because It Is al
most certain that the challenger will be a combina
tion of her lines with those of the Columbia, and
there are now marked differences between these
two craft. For Instance, the length of the keels
greatly differs, the lead bulb of the Sybarlta being
10 feet long. and. though this may be reduced to
something slightly nearer the Columbia's dimen
sion. It is not probable that Wat*on, who seeks
wind Jamming abilities above all. will cut down the
length of the fin to any great extent. The Syba
rita'e lead weighs ninety tens, and is cast flat
elded, without a trace of a bulb. Speaking gener
ally about the boat. It may be said that sharpness.
Straight lines and angle* seem to be everywhere—
a much uglier and totally different craft from the
Columbia, which could be almost said to be with
out a corner anywhere, and to be a picture from
any point of vlem\
In over all length the Sybartta Is ISS feet long,
the Shamrock being 13 feet « Inches. She is 89
r«-»t on the water line, and her beam is 23 feet,
while the Shamrock's was said to be 24 feet 7
inches, though it looked more. The Columbia's
length is IS2 feet and her extreme beam 24 feet.
The new boat's bow is very long and fine, though
tier after overhang is shorter than the Columbia's,
and for some reason she does not appear in the
deck view to have a beam of anything like 23 feet
This narrow usi*-et if probably aided by her lack
«.f *h#«r S*-en from the side. i=he has a long drawn.
tlai-sid.-d .-hallow body, with fine ends and a soft
ly turning bilge. The flare of the sides goes well
ii :.»..ve the water line, and there Is practically no
tumble home. Then arc no flowing curves in the
k rinr unless the long lines of the wedge
i>ow could l>e called curves, and the cutting
sway from the point of greatest beam at the chain
jtlatt-s leaves an ugly bulge: but this has nothing
t,. do with thf under body, where the lines run
beautifully, and not at all in accordance with the
harsh deck view. When Mr. Watson built this
boat for Whittaker Wright he had already been
engaged I<\ Sir Thomas Llpton.
OKAMOB LAKE ICE YACHTING.
The thaw of the last few days hes not improved
the ice yachting of the Orange Lake Ice Yacht
Club, and In one of the races of last week the ma
chines were unable to get around the course for
want of wind. But active preparations are being
made to bring the whole fleet on the ice. The
Windward, a vessel of the first class, belongs to
Commodore Higginson, who also owns vhe Cold
Wave, which carries 335 square feet of sail. The
Trouble/ owned by Robert Kernahan, and the Ice
Queen. l>e!onging to EL S. RamsdeU, are repre
sentative craft. Besides the6e, there are the Ice
King, l^kmgir.g to H. M. Stebbins, and Frank C.
Wood* Flying Jib. The Tiny and the Midget are
email craft, which are also owned by H. S. Rams
rirll, and the lateen rigged Grazlella is owned by H.
J. Jova. Most of these have already been out, to
gether with the owned by George C. Trim
ble. Prominent in the lake fleet are Elijah Walsh's
Arctic, the T.ike Care, owned by Robert White
hill; the Impulse, belonging to E. Qulnlan, and H.
These machines do not readily lend themselves to
ornamentation, but It is noticed that Mr. Stebblns
has his Ice King painted a deep blue, with scroll
work gliding and the head of an eagle carved at the
forward end of the centre timber. The prizes for
the club racing are a gold stop watch, offered by
Commodore H. C. Higglnson; a bronze to be given
by Mr. Ashley, and three to be given by
Elijah Walsh, Captain James O'Brien and Fred
erick Brewpter. The first of these will be raced
for next week, and great preparations have been
made for a prolonged season. There were ten
weeks of active ice racing on Orange Lake last
winter. The Commodore has a new craft almost
ready which will probably sail for the ice yacht
challenge pennant of America, now held by the
Icicle, owned by John A. Roosevelt, of the Hudson
River Ice Yacht Club.

A DVXKARD BREACH OF PROMISE CASE.
MEMBERS OF SECT OPPOSED TO LITIGATION EN
GAGE IN IT— SfIT AGAINST AN ACTING
Cumberland. Md., Dec. 22 (Special).— Living with
her widowed mother in the quiet mining town of
Salisbury, six miles north of Frostburg, Md.. .s
Miss Cora A. Keiin. the plaintiff in the $25,000
breach of promise suit against Professor I. Harvey
Brumbaugh, acting president of Juniata College,
at Huntinßdon, Perm. She is the young, pretty
woman who has gained much notoriety in the last
few weeks Professor Brumbaugh a few months
ago married a your.R woman of Cambridge, Mass.
Both principals in the case belong to the Dunkard
faith, which is opposed to litigation of any kind.
This ie the first case in this region where two
Dunkards have been involved in a lawsuit. Profes
sor Brumbaugh Is thf son of Elder H. B. Brum
baugh, one of the wealthiest and most widely
known Dunkards In Huntingdon County, and a
cousin of Professor M. G. Brumbaugh, of the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania, recently appointed Com
missioner of Education in Porto Rico. The plain
tiff is a sister of Professor H. G. Kelm, of Elkin-3,
According to the Dunkard interpretation of the
15th, 16th and 17th verses of the eighteenth chapter
of the Gospel of Matthew, Miss Keim's action is
seemingly at variance with the Dunkard discipline.
The specific verses are:
Moreover, if thy brother shall trespass against
thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and
him alone; if he phall hear thee. Thou hast gained
But If he will not hear thee. then take with thee
one or two more, that in the mouth of two or
three witnesses every word may he established.
And If he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto
the church, but if he neglect to hear the church,

knowledge of Cora Keim's Intended action against
him until he was summoned to give a bond before
the Sheriff of the County in the sum of $503, and
from this his friends argue that the plaintiff Is re
ligiously at fault In prosecuting one of the fellow
ship without submitting her grievances first to the
defendant, and then to the church council, in the
event of an unsatisfactory adjudication between
those directly concerned.
It is a rule of the Dunkards that deacons of the
several congregations make semi-annual visita
tions to every member In good fellowship and ask,
among other questions: "Are you In complete
harmony and peace with every member of your
church?" Believing that such visitation was paid

IN A BERLIN MISKUM.
From the (Berlin) Norddeutsche Allgemelne Zel
tung (Nov. 28, 1900).
Recently there have been placed or. j\ hi bit ion in
the main room of the Museum of v»rt
ous things of great importance In relation to the
fnvestigaUon of the earlier American clvilliation
The Museum owes the valuable additions to he
liberality of the Duo de I^oubat. the self-sacrlncing
iafron of Amarlcan studies. We see his name ,*s
the presenter of valuable gilts In all the room,
containing collections from Central America. Thmt
the veil which has hung over pre-Colutnhlan daya
Jn th« New World Is gradually being lined ib in
no smaU way due to the spirit of investigation
whlc™ he h£» fostered. The Due has been a
M^cena. In f special way in publtahinK cop es of
ancient Mexican hieroglyphics which h «T e ™*°"
have only been visible to those visiting : the places
where they are preserved. He has made them
public property, as he has presented copies to all
museums of the world, even to those of Jn P a "- d
The hieroglyphics are painted on a P a P er m ".^
from the fibre of the Agnve Americana. Pf™ llHr
to Central America. From the name aPP' Ie ° lo
this plant In the an-ient tongues of the Antilles
the paper Is called Maguey paper. Up to the pres
ent time the Due haa had facsimiles or copies
made of seven such manuscripts or series of hiero
glyphics. One of each Is to be seen in the hails
of the museum. The contents of the Codex Vat
icanus. No. 3,773. the Codex Borgia, beautifully
painted and drawn, which is in the possession of
the Congregatio de Propaganda Fide. In Rome, and
of the Codex Bologna Cospianus are of an almanac
or astrological character. The Mexican Govern
ment, In addition to the Due de Loabat, has aided
In the publication of the beautifully drnwn Codex
Borbonicus, which contains the annual festivals of
the Mexicans and an astrological calendar. The
original is in the library of the French Chamber of
Deputies in the Palais Bourbon.
Only recently the Due published the "Tonal
Amatl"— that is, "The Book of the Good and Bad
Days"— which is to be found in the Bibliotheque
Nationals in Paris.
Special interest attaches also to the Codex Tel
lerinno-Remensls. which Bishop Le Tellier. of
Reims, presented to the Bibliotheque Nationtile. . . .
In a certain sense, the Codex Vatieanus, No. 3.738.
also published by the Due, is a copy of the last
named manuscript. The publication was never
theless desirable, because, although not so well
painted. It is more complete than the Telleriano-
Remensls. It gives, among other things, a repre
sentation of the various Mexican heavens, from the
uppermost of which children were sent into the
world, and of the various Infernal regions — which
begin with "chlucnauhapan," "the ninefold flowing
stream," across which the souls of the dead must
be led by a dog— hence the custom of the old Mexi
cans of burying a dog with the drad.
An important addition to these studies, and an
extremtlv valuable addition to the museum, has
been made through the journey to Central America
by Professor Sel"- and his wife, at the expense
of the Due de Loubat. . . . The collection gathered
on this trip, according to the direction of the Due.
was divided between the museums in Berlin and
New-York. . . The complete and interesting col
lection from Guatemala our museum also owes to the
Due de Loubat. . . In the neighborhood of Santa
Lucia Cozumahualpa, below Antigua, at the base
of the Fuego volcano, Dr. Seler discovered great
relief pictures on blocks of lava. . . . He made casts
of thes<\ ... In the State of Chlapa, a territory
whence nothing in the past had been sent to Eu
rope, Dr. Seler was able to discover interesting
clay figures. Ho spent several months n?ar Cha
cula, in the Xer.ton district, not far from the
Mexican bounda/y, and there made excavations.
The discoveries there belong in all probability to
the Maya civilization. . . . We see here a
civilization different from anything we ha\-e ever
A number of plaster casts presented to the mu
seum by the Due de Loubat take us back to the
Maya civilization. They are now in the main hall.
They were made by an expedition of the Peabody
Museum, in Massachusetts, which received permis
sion to conduct excavations in Copau, in Honduras.
That material for Investigation is now at the
disposal of the savans of the world we owe not
only to explorers and expeditions, but above all
to men who, like the Due de Loubat, go to the
trouble and expense, of having exact copies made
from originals and placing them on exhibition in
the various museums.

A MEMBER OF THE SOCIETY OF OLD BROOK
LYNITES CONSPICUOUS A3 A
Conspicuous among the members of the Society
of Old Brooklynltes is the veteran writer on sports
and pastimes, Henry Chadwick, so well known
among the votaries of the National game as "The
Father of Baseball," who this December, 1900, com
pletes the fiftieth year of his career, he having be

Brooklyn. From his boyhood days, though a mu

Who has just finished fifty years of service at a
his father, James Chad wick, formerly Editor of
"The Western Times." of Exeter, England, and
who was on the editorial staff of "The New-York
Transcript" In the decade of the forties.
Mr. Chadwlck'i connection as a writer with base
ball began In the decade of the fifties, when he
began to write up the games for "The New-York
Times" in 1836. and for "The Clipper" In 1867.
with which latter Journal he was baseball and
cricket editor from 1858 to 1880. He left that paper
to go on • "The Outing" In 1880. Previously Mr.
Chadwick had reported the game of cricket for
"The Spirit of the Times" in 1864. and afterward
for "Porter's Spirit" and "WUkes Spirit." both
being the predecessor of the present "Spirit of the
Times." It was In 1869. however, that he began to
take Interest In the welfare of the National Asso
ciation of Baseball Players, organised In 1858. and It
was not long before he became a member of Its
Committee on Rules, ultimately its chairman and
it was while he occupied this position that the
opportunity was afforded him to carry into practi
cal operation his Ideas of what the rules of the
game should be. In fact. It was In the decade of
the sixties that Mr. Chadwlck evolved from the
crude rules of the period a code of laws which en
abled him to place baseball upon its existing plane
of the National game of America, which it now un

In September. 1859. when he was sent to Montreal
to report the international cricket march of George
Parrs professional players from England and he
was also one of the Richmond correspondents of
The Tribune during the exciting time of the at

GEROSIMO'S "DRESS COAT."
A SCALP ADORNED ROBE. ONCE WORN BT TO
From The Kansas City Journal.
Within the last few days a valuable addition has
been made to Fred Harvey's collection of Indian
relics and enrtr«s, which Is housed in the mnex to
the union station. It is a robe which was formerly
owned and worn by Geronlmo. the famous Indian
fighter. The garment was secured In 3an Fran
cisco by John F. Huckel, Mr. Harvey's son-in-law.
c manager of the news department of the
Harvey system. Mr. Huckel believes there la no
question regarding the genuineness of the article.
He secured It from a collector of Indian curios
who had become financially embarrassed and was
forced to part with his relics at a sacrifice. Mr.
*el says he would, not sell It at any price.
« htle It Is not known upon what particular oc
casions the red-skinned warrior wore this garment.
It Is said to have been the Indian's "dress coat. 3
and. therefore, was worn only at special tlan It
Is of buckskin, and Is decorated with beaded fl«
urea of Indian* and wild anlnr.aU and with beaded
embroidery. This alone would make it of value for
th« demand for beaded embroidery is. In these
times, much greater than the supply. Perhaps the
most Interesting feature in connection with the
garment, however, is that tlansltn* from the shoul

can be recognised as that of wamen victims, al
