LIPTON DENIED ANOTHER
RACE FOR AMERICA'S CUP
New York Yacht Club Declines Challenge be

Sportsman May Send Another.
New York, March 12, Sir Thomas Kip
ton's challenge for another rare for tho
America's cup, the premier trophy of
the yachting world, was Jccllncd by
the Now York Yacht club to-nlKht.
This action was taken, the club an
nounced, becuuso the challenger did
not comply with conditions or tho
deed of nlft, which governs all con
tests for the cup.
The declination of the present chal
lenge, however, It was stated by mem
bers, did not necessarily mean that
no cup race was In prospect, as tho
club was In anticipation of an unre
stricted challcimn from a Itrltlsh kci
tleman other than Sir Thomas Upton
The club's only official statement
related to tho reason for tho declina
tion of the Upton challenge, which
was forwarded by tho Uoyal Ulster
Yacht club for Sir Thomas. The
"Tho New Yotk Yacht club has ic-
dined this challenge, because It Im
poses as n condition that tho defend

letiKth on the water lino, and thereby
deprives the defending club of tho

select :i vessel of such size as It
pleases provided she be not less
than US nor more than 00 feet on the.
"Tho club has cabled Its reply to
the Uoyal Ulster Yacht club. As It
would be Improper to make this reply
public before it is received by tho
Uoyal Ulster Yacht club, it cannot be

Washington, March 12, One of the
first material difi'eretices to arise be
tween President Wilson and Secretary
Ilryan concerns the policy of this ad
ministration toward the Philippines.
Secretary Ilryan believes that some
step should be taken without delay to
declare the put peso of the United
States to giant complete Independence
to this Philippines, and would oven ko

which such Independence) should be
President Wilson, on the other hand,
believes that this Is a case whero it Is
wise to make haste slowly anJ to
avoid doing anything which might
make necessary stultification of tho

time set had arrived, or which might
prove the occasion for profound re
gret While Piesident Wilson has not ex
pressed himself specifically regarding
the I reposed trip of Inspection to the
Philippines, it is believed that when
he has had time to consider It ho will
be heartily In favor of It, as It seems
to accord with his general views on
the subject. I
DIl'l'KHUNCl-; NOT HITTER.
It Is not to be Inferred that them is any
thing Ulttir about the difference of opin

President and the premier member of his
cabitii.t. That is not to lie expected, at

Uoth arn big men and both have had am
ple warning, so they are not likely to fall

So far as can be learned, tho Presi

the one which will find most favor with
the majority In Congress, irrespective ol

Pressure of Party Leaders Re
sults in Throwing1 Down the
Bare for Other Subjects
Than Tariff Reform.
Washington, March 1 2. President
Wilson has doeldod upon a policy of
meeting legislative developments as
they arise rather than planninK a. pro
nram for the extraordinary session of
Congress This, It was learned from
White House callers to-day. will be
the President's answer to those who
are arging that currency legislation,
Philippine Independence, Alaskan ques
tions and other subjects be taken up
during- the session of the new Congrc.s.
The President was advised by Itep
resenta'ive Oscar I'nilerwood, the
democratic majority leader, that the
ways nnd means commltteo was mak
ing rapid progress, but that It might
not bo ,-eady on April 1, the date orig
inally fixed for the opening of tir new
Congress. Mr. Underwood thought that
at leaM a week moro should be given
to preparation of the tariff bills an.i
as it was on bis advice that Mr. Wil
son tl.i d upon April 1, there Is mi
doubt that he will name n later .!n.
when issuing his pioclamatlon it.
sentatUe Underwood believe.- i,n
tariff reform alono should be attempt
ed at tho coming session. As he left
the White House, Ueprcucntatlvn Jones
of Virginia, who Is i haiiipionlng the
cause of Philippine Independence, mot
him and sought to impress upon him
the necessity for some action on that
iUestion during the extra session. Mr.
Jones secured an appo.ntmeut with the
President for Friday when ho will fur
ther urge Philippine legislation.
The net result of the pressure for ac
tion on otlvr things than the tatiff litis
been the adoption of a policy of meeting
the legislative situation is It unfolds in
the new Congress. The President will
send first a mi ssage pointing out the
neeeshlty for tariff revision and will fol
low this with a series n' . essitges upon
specitic things which he believes Congress
may be able to act upon without unnec
essarily prolonging the session. This
course :s said to have been approved at
to-day's cabinet meeting.
The suggestion that only tariff revision
be attempted arose from the fear that
other subjects might becloud anil Inter
fere with the tariff question- Assur
ances havo been coming, however, from
Miiiinis quarters, principally the Senate,
that the anticipated dlllictilty with the
tariff may not materialize after all. Tho
reorganization of the Senate, with con
trol of the ciinmlttecs in the hands of
senators who ;jo In close sympathy with
the . lmlnlstrailon, Is .vald to he one of
the i Ireumstnnus from w hich the conclu
sion has been drawn that the tariff as
well as other q lesllons may he disposed
ol without sre.it dltllculty.
Tt was a day of many calleis for tin
Prc.'lent nnd while most of them weie
members of Congress being consul, ud
aboi.t patronage questions some talked
legislative policies, and others came
met ly to pay their respects. Among these
win- "Uncle Joe" Cannon, former speaker
of "ie House, who said good-bye to tho

In Danville, 111. The former speaker In

Men's association and a well-known .sta

has been in por health of late,
but had forgotten that as a child
he put a button Into his nostril and thus
did not know the cause of tho trouble.
At a preliminary i xanilnatlon the doctor
illfcoiered that there -was ntniuthlng un
usual in ono of the nasal passages and
.Mr. Chalmers then remembered that his
mother had told him that at the age of
two years a button was forced Into his

that It had ever come out.
The operation ii-qulre-d thre.i hour?, co

i.ut without making any external Incision.
It w;u about a quarter of an Inch In diam

made It impossible to remove the button
