STILL AFTER THE GUP. CHARLES ROSE OF LONDON SENDS ANOTHER CHALLENGE The Defl Must Ite Formally !Uade Beforo It Will Me Accepted by the Aiuerlon's Cnv Committee Jiew Aspirant n Well luawn Turfman. New Tohii, Sept. SI. Another chal lenge has been issued for the America's cup. Ex-Commodore James I). Smith, rhnlrnian of the cup committee of the New Vork Yacht club. 1ms received ii cable message from Chai'es liose, son of Sir John Kose uf London, challenging the club to a race to be sailed in IKi'tl. The chiillpn.ee was turned over to the New York Yacht club. It cannot be form ally noted upon because It wns not made In tho proper form. According to the deed of gift under which the New York Yacht club holds the America' cup. the challenge should l ave been sent through the sec.-i;tary of tho club to which Mr. Kose heloitgs to the secreta ry of tho New York Yacht, club. Mr. Koso challenges as an individual. It is thought, however, that he will prol ably put his oiler in formal shape for the action of tho yacht club. Mr. Hose is a member of tho Jockey club of London and lias been kuowu for many yenrs as a racing man. Commodore Smith says that the chal lenger Is a member of" the Koyal Yacht squadron, hut his name docs not appear upon tho list of those belonging to that organization. Sir John Hose, brother of the challenger. Is a member of the banking tirm of Mor ton, Koso & Co., London correspondents of Morton, Bliss A; Co. Tho fact that a new challenge comes so soon is regarded as compliment to tho regatta committee of the New York Yacht club from an English source. There was in New York only one mem ber of the America's cup committee of the New York Yacht club who knew the fact Cf the new chailougu. In speaking of the Challenge he said: Gratifying to the Committee, "You may ear that there lias been a Challenge, and that its attendant terms bnve been signified by cable. In the light of its following bo close upon the unfortu nate ending of the Valkyrie-Defender meeting it Is significant though I should not wish to say that 1 rcfard It as being In the light of a slap nt Lord Dunrnven or n disapproval of his policy, but the fact of tho challenge is exceedingly gratifying to me. Tho full conditions are not rcadv for publication. "I believe the gentleman, who has pro posed tho mo for the America's cup in 1890 is a :uombcr of the Ko.val Vncht squadron. The conditions, of course, have not been arranged. It is not uecessarr for ir.e to tell you that it is too early for their arrangement or for an agreement upon "Conpornlnpa sew interanrional trophy nd tho English proposition to that effect, 1 do not Ue'aevo that the New York Yacht club will accept it. even though we might win it, should we send a boat over or Should the British empire send a boat over hero for a like prize. If tl.. ehallenges continue to come, as seems likely, I do not know why the New York Yacht dub should desire any new bone of contention. Indeed it strikes me that such arrange ments would Interioro with America V cup matches and drtraet from their interest father than adding to it. "As to whether the Prince of Wales has anything to do with the challenge. I can Hot say. Cf course the prince might not feel willing in his own title to challenge for even so important an honor as would be the winning of the Queen's cup, which the America won over the Cow. s c o.;-so iu ISM. "1 bellove that it is a irv.u vindication of the New York Yacht club and its com inittees that such fs challenge should hove been so soon received. Its promptness makes me happy nt any rate." Another QuAlitlpd Challenge Kcndy, IxntPOX, Sept. '.1. Tho Field this morning Nays that a wealthy ntlcinan is prepared to build a cutter wiih w hich to challenge for the America's cup In l'.iti providing the Now- York Yacht club will ronsent to sail the matches in waters where tho yachts will not bo intei fored with. "The unfortunate ending this year," The Field goes on to say, "was due to the refusal of the America's cup committee to change the venue of the races. The fact is that Lord Dunravcn should have Insisted upon the change and not me-.ely nppealed to the committee's sense of lair play. Neither the coinmiiteo nor the com petitors have got out of an awkw.irdsit uatlon very well." Tho Sportsman this morning says that the Koyal Yacht squadron is considering the offer of Laycoi k.

IT IS SUPPOSED HE WAS BY ROBBERS. MURDERED The Princeton Police Authorities Deller There Wa Fonl Play, While Some ot Dale's Friends in Philadelphia Think He Committed Suicide. Prikcktom, NT. J., Sept. SI. It is bo licved by the police of this citv that rob bery was the motive for tho death of Al len V. Dalo, a civil engineer on tho Penn sylvania railroad, whoso body was found iu the Delawaro and Karitun canal, neat Princeton basin, on Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Dale was reported to have, had consid erable money and a gold watch and chain. Whon tho body was taken from tho water, every article of value was gone, and evory siip of paper by which it could be identi fied. The only mark denoting violence was a small discoloration over tho right temple. There was uo water iu tho lungs, and the body was floating on the surfaeo less than 34 hours after Mr. Dale was known to have been alive, which goes to prove that he was dead when thrown Into the canal. This is tho fourth case of a similar char acter within a year iu tho locality where Mr. Dale's body was found. Along the canal, where it widens into the Princeton basin, is a cluster of houses, known as "Dug Row," occupied by low characters. It is a dangerous region. A Victim of Hug Row. Mr. Dale was a student in Princeton in 1SS3, and it is said he came here to visit the scenes of former days. Probably the last persons who saw him beforo his death were Deujamin Gray, a brakoman on tho Princeton branch of the Pennsylvania railroad, and Alfred W. Wright, a boy. Gray was returning last Monday from a visit to his brother-in-law, who lives near the Aqueduct mill, whan ho passed Mr. Dale, who was walking along the towpath toward Princeton, Gray savs Mr. Dale was sauntering along, apparently enjoying the scenery. This was about lialf past 0 o'clock In the evening. At the rato Mr. Dale was walking he would have reached "Bug liow" after dark. Mr. Dalo wore a soft black hat. When the body was found, this hut was in tho hip pocket of his trousers. From this the theory has been advanced that probably ho was lured into ono of tho houses in "Dug Uow" and murdered and robbed. Tho body was first noticed about 4 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon by Mrs. fiprong, one of tho inhabitants of the "row, " when it was partially turned over by a passing boat. Coroner Bowers came from Trenton nnd Immediately took tho body to that city, despite tho protests of Chief of Police Tyrrall of Princeton, who believed this proceeding might lessen the chanco of discovering how the man mot his death. ii AV. Dais lived In ReadiBn. P . Wjaro M boarded In the fomily of a Afr. Bradbury in Franklin street. . Hto only known relative is Ms aged mother, who lives iu Philadelphia. She has been an in valid for three years, and her condition is so precarious that tho news of her son's death will bo kept from her. Mr. Dale had been employed by the Pennsylvania rail road for 30 years and had always been highly esteemed. On account of troublo with his eyes he had been on leave of ab sence for three months. The body will bo burled by tho railroad company, which will also provide for tho man's mother during her life. Several Pennsylvania Railroad com pany detectives are hero working on the case, and two persons are under surveil lance, but it is not likely that arrests will be made beforo tho inquest, next Tuesday.

Dalo gave his watch oud a considerable sum of money to a friend, Mrs. Laura Freas, livinar in Olcy street, that. city.

His mother, Mrs. Dale, 90 years old, haa lived for ten years in the Arch street bouse, Arch street and Delaware avenue, this city. Mrs. Froas of Reading was her guest. Wheu a reporter called at tho Arch street house Mrs. l'reos would not admit that she had received a letter from Mr. Dale, and though at first she declared she thought ho had been a victim of foul Dlnv. she afterward said ho might, have been sunstruck or suffering from temporary in sanity produced Uy heat.

Editor of the 1f.mocuat: Sir: In reference to an article pub lished iu this morning's llcpublican, iu reference to the boundary lines of the Town Plot school district, in which it is alleged that the taxpayers were not notified of the meeting which decided to cut oil' some of their territory and add to the South Brooklyn school district, allow me to state that'the meet ing was duly warned and presided over by Selectman Pinner with Town Clerk McMahon taking the minutes. A notice of the meeting was posted on tho Town 1'lot, school and another left at MrYail's house. The boundary lines were fully defined anil lucidly explained to the meeting so that there could be no doubt their exact location. If the Town Plot people thought there was something wrong about the transaction why did they remain silent for two years before calling attention to it ? Michael Hautt. CITY NEWS.
