Chicago, Sept., 24. The great national convention of t he Irish societies was open ed in the Young- Men's Christian Associa tion hall this morning with a large repre sentation of Irishmen from all parts of the country. John T. Keating, stnto secretary of the Ancient Order of Hibernians nod sec retary of the IocaI reception committee, estimates that there are fully 1,600 dole Kates in attendance. The convention will Inst three days. One general object is the formation of a united open organization for the further ance of the Irish cause Those who issued ho call for the convention claim that it is not contemplated that physical foreo sliiill he used or advised In the attainment of the independency of tho Irish people as a nation unless such means he deemed ab solutely necjs-ary and the object in view K1 prekihie of attainment. It is believed the convention will serve to revive inter est and infuse new life into the Irish cause lath iu America ami Great Uritoiu.

ETHELWYNN'S VICTORY The American Half Rater Wins the First Race of the Series. ENGLISH BOAT HANDILY BEATEN. Sir. Brand, Owner of Sprnoe IT, Prove Himself to Be a True Sportsman, and, Althoncn His Boat Was Nearly Eight Minutes Behind. He Will Mot Flunk. CmtTKK IstAXD, N. Y., Sept. 3 In the race for the International challenge cup. offered by the Ssawanhaka-Corlnthi-an Yaoht olub, for half raters, which took place outside of this harbor, on Long Is land sound, Spruoe IV. owned by Mr. J. Arthur Brand of the Minima Yacht club ; of England, was beaten in a fair all around" i contest by Kthelwynu, owned by C. J. Field of the Indian Harbor Yacht olub of Connecticut. The breeze in which tho small boats sailed varied in strength from live to ten miles an hour, though it was only during a short period that it was ver as fast as tho latter estimate. The course was from a buoy off the Is land, ou which the handsome Seawanhaka club Is situated, threo miles to leewurd and return and repeat, making a full course of 19 miles. The Ethelwynn showed herself to be tho better boat In general sailing, although Spruoe IV ploked up on her in the second run out beforo the wind and again on a reach toward the Long Island shore after rounding the outer mark the second time. Beforo tho race began Mr. Brand said that he wanted a fresh breeze. When it was all over, he admitted that he had made a mistake. Ho had thought that his Spruce IV would be better in a breeze tilan Ethel wynn, but It turned out that whenever tho breeze sprung up Kihelwynn passed him. There was running and beating and reaoalng in the rare, and Ethelwynn al ways held her advantage so closely that she was always in the lead to a creditable extent. A the start Ethelwynn got S sec onds the advantage. On tfs run out the first time she was 17 seconds ahead. On rounding the second marl; she was 7 min utes 13 seconds ahead. On the second run out before ths wind Spruce IV gained and was second by only 5 minutes 6 seconds. On tho scoond return for home the wind heaved somewhnt to tho southward, and tho yaohts had some reaching to do. Ou this point of sailing the difference was 5 minutes 5 seconds. The flulsh showed that Ethelwynn was a better boat by 7 minutes 41 seconds. Captain Brand a True Sportsman. Mr. Brand had no possible complaint, he said, to make aguinst the steam yachts, excursion boats, schooners or sloops that were following the racers except in oue instance, when Mr. Colgate lloyt's steam launch got in his way just before the start and interfered with his crossing of the starting line. 'But," said Mr. Brand, '"don't think for a moment, that 1 am making a claim so great that the result would affect tho finish of the day. I was beaten, and well beaten. The influence of that little launch that I speak of was insignificant. I would not have mentioned the fact if you bad not questioned me closely. " Mr. Brand was quite willing to say that the hope he had left in his breast was for a really brisk wind say cue as strong as 14 or 16 miles an hour when both Waterbury Clothin House Will open its doors to tho People of Waterbury Tuesday Ev'g, Sept 24, At 7 O'clock. Beautiful Music and a general good time. 13 Come and bring the children. No goods will be sold on this occasion. m TERBURf Nothing 83 BAN K ST. yaonrs wouia nave to reaon. no seemea to be confident that he would have a show la that kind of weather. Otherwise he was not sure about carrying, home the handsome 1500 cup that the Seawanhaka Corinthlnn club has hung up. Mr. Brand's manner was that of a real sportsman. His tone Indicated that ha felt he was beaten, but it also told that he would fight the thing cut to the end. It was one of those one gun English starts, where tho contestants had to figure on the tlmo that tho gun would be fired, nnd get over tho lino as soon after the designated time as possible. This kind of a game always gives skippers a chance to jockey about the lino and to gain an ad vantage over eaoh othor if they are smart enough. According to Mr. Brand, Spruce IV was interfered with by a steam launch. Any how Ethelwynn got over the line first and went away on her business without wait ing for bar challenger. Spruce IV was not lassy, and she eame upon the weather side of the American boat before an eighth of a mils bad been covered and blanketed the Yankee. More than that, the British er went by tho Yankee, but that was the only time that England was ahead of America in the race of the half raters. On crossing the line and running before the wind both bouts set their spinnakers. The breeze at that time was blowing about four kuotg an hour, and tho racers sped before it. Going down to the outer mark en the first round Ethelwynn overhauled Spruce IV and made her turn at 1 :S9:40, or 17 seconds ahead of her antagonist. Ethelwynn a Witch at Reaching;. The boats turned tho scoond mark as follows: H. M. 8. Ethelwynn 8 02 02 tjpruoe IV 8 t IS This gave Ethelwynn a leading advan tage of 7 minutes 18 seconds. The reach ing on this lug proved that Ethelwynn was the better boot at that sort of busi ness, especially as the wind was increas ing all tho time. As the boats turned the home buoy for the second run of the course there was some very clever seamanship shown on both vessels. On tho second run out to tho mark Ethelwynn was first, turning that buoy at 3:8ti;5S. while Spruce did not got, there until 3:42:08. Itwill be seen that Spruce gained on this run. the difference between them at tho thiU mark being only 5 minutes 5 seconds, while when they minded the home mark to begin the sec ond round the difference wns 7 minutes nnd 13 seconds, as said before. After go ing around the outer mark the second time the contestants again stood in along the Long Island shore under Lloyd's neck, and there was a good deal of reaching in getting home, the wind having hauled well to the southward. Ethelwynn, as everybody knew at this time would be the ease, passed the line first at 4:47:15. She was greeted with tho usual shrieking and footings and blast ings of the assembled fleet of observers. But it mist be noted as a matter of fact that tho good, game Spruce, who camo along at :64.:f)5, or 7 minutes and 41 sec onds behind, received as royal a welcomo as did the winner. No Ward of a Game at Prineeton. Pkickto, X. J., Sept. 24. Manager Milhauk of tho Princeton team denies the report that Harvard has challenged the Princeton team.

Go's Souvenirs HOUoL fy Te rjootom, Almost every one has made his jct about the proneuess of doctors to dis : agree, the one proscribing exactly an op j posite course from that ordered by an j other, but not every one has had an op j portouity to conduct such an experiment I as was made by the late Baron Lntz, j formerly prime minister of Bavaria. I The baron was ouce severely wounded in battle in both logs. Tho wound in one leg was mnch like that in the other. It struck him that there was a chance to study the ways of the surgical pro fession and boguilo the long hours of his ! convalescence. Ho aocoidingly called in ; one doctor and gave him charge of his ; right leg, bnt told him nothing about the wound in the other, and then called ; in another doctor for his left leg, keep ing him similarly in ignorance about ; the wonnded right leg. The doctors adopted a very different : method of treatment, bnt both wounds healed at about the same time. When the baron's legs were quite well, he do ; rived a great deal of amusement from getting the doctors together and mysti fying them with questions about the way each had treated "his leg." At lanta Constitution. Walking. For walking with pleasure and advan tage I should give a few simple rules. The application of these rules for him self every man must mako with due al lowance for his own peculiarities. Take plenty of tinao at meals. Do not walk right after a meal. Rest well before the noon and evening meals. Drink all yon desire of good water during tho tramp, but sparingly at meals or Just before eating. Good digestion is as important to good walking as it is Decessury for good w'cVk of any kind. As to foods, a man has to take on his tramp what is set beforo him. It will generally be nourishing enough if ho will be careful to eat it when not tired and to eat it slowly. At tho end of each day take a spongo or towel bath or a dry rub down. At least wash your feet and change socks, and shoes, too, if possible. A change of all my clothing next to the skin at the end of enoh day is imperative with me. Chicago News. An Honest Scrgeaat. A militnry story comes from Ireland. A noncommissioned officer, entering a barrack gate in Dublin, was mistaken by the "fresh one" on sentry go, who immediately sainted him. Tho noncom missioned officer, unaware that his colo- ; nel was just behind, returned the salnte, a thing not permissible under the circumstances. Arrived at his quar j tors, ho was surprised to find an order for him to attend before the colonel. On presenting himself ho was asked how he came to return the salnte, know ing full well he was not entitled to it. Not in the least embarrassed, he promptly answered, "Sir, I always re turn everything I tun not entitled to." Tho colonel, taken aback by his ready wit, laughingly dismissed him.
