City Asked to Help Bjy
The movement to purchase a silver
service for Sir Thomas Upton as a
token of the esteem in which he is
held by the American people has
leached Kock Island in the form of a
letter to Mayor McC'onochie, who is
invited to serve as chairman of a lo
cal committee on subscriptions, the
desire being to have every city in the
country represented in the. testimo
nial. "I think Upton is a tine fellow,"
said the mayor today, "and the only
thing' I am sorry for is that he can't
tret together a boat that will give him
a better chance. Naturally, I wanted
to see the cup held in America, but a
real sport like Sir Tom at least de
served to win one of the races. Kock
Island ought to be in on the cup pre
sentation, and 1 will receive any do
nations of rash that local people feel
like making. The letter received by
