PANDY HOOK, July 1 8 Blr
Thomas Llpton plana to lake Captain
William P. Burton from the wheel
of the cup challenger Shamrock IV.
The decision to supplant Captain
Morton aa skipper of the Llpton
loop was practically decided upon
at a series of conference today of
Sir Thomas Llpton, Captain H L
C.arrett. representative of the Hoyal
Water Yacht club on hoard the Reso
lute, rharles Nicholson, designer of
the Shamrock and Colonel Duncan
F. D. Nelll principal representative
of Sir Thomas on board the Sham
rock. V'hen the Llpton seventyifooter Is
found at the starting line for Tues
day's race either Colonel Nelll or
Designer Nicholson probably will he
In command Sir Thomas' choice for
skipper Is Mr. Nicholson, who not

rock IV. and who Is also a yachtsman
of abjllly. Whether Captain Burton
and his wife, who sails on the chal
I'nnr as the eloop'a time Keeper,
will remain on board the Shamrock
Is not known, hut the belief on Sir
Thomas' steam yacht tonight waa
that Mr. Burton would not care to
Mil on the challenger under the cir
cumstances. Tho removal of a cap
tain from a cup yacht during the
progress of an America's cup match
is bellered to be without precedent
In the history of cup racing.
Sir Thomas would not talk of Cap
taln Burton's removal other than to
Bfty tonight, when asked about the
last two races, that things were not

Sir Thomas continues to sav that he

and sailing ability pf his latest chal

F Adams has handled the Resolute'e
wheel has beep expressed on Sir
Thomas' steam yacht, and It was oh.
served that there was a concurrence
of opinion expressed in newspapers
h!tt Shamrock was not being
handled In a fashion to show her
4 ability; that In the start of the
racers she has been completely out
maneuvered and that the Linton
traft has not been sailed to wind
ward as she might.
The climax in the situation came
yesterday when the Shamrock lost
ground because of certain changes
In heiidsalls during the first leg to
windward. Here again Skipper
ewtont was complimented on his

visrant breezes and kept the Reso
