Associated Press Cable. to the Star
NEW YORK, Jan. 6. Arrangements have been made be
tween the representative of Sir Thomas Lipton and the cup com
mittee of the New York Yacht Club, by which it is agtced to hold
the races for the America Cup in August next. The keel of a
yacht which is to compete with the Columbia and the Constitu
tion for the honor of defending the cup, was laid only a short
time ago. This yacht like the other two, was designed by Ned
HerreshofT, the celebrated yacht builder of Bristol, Rhode Island.

CONSTANTINOPLE, Jan. 6. Great Britain has protested
against Russian warships passing the Dardanelles in violation of
International treaties. She demands that the permission recently
' granted by the Sublime Porte shall be revoked. If it is not Great
Britain insists that she shall be granted similar privileges. It is
feared that the other Powers will follow the example of Great
Britain. Russia is very much irritated at the position taken by
It has been one of the objects of Russian diplomacy and arms
for- years to secure free access for Russian men-of-war to the
Mediterranean through the Straits of Dardanelles, but the rest
of Europe in its policy of maintaining the Ottoman. Empire as
a bulkwark against Russia, has opposed this policyboth by arms
and by diplomacy. That Turkey should have give.ijRussia, her
supposed hereditary enemy, permission for her warslr'ps to pass
the Dardanelles, may therefore well be expected to aVouse pro
test from Great Britain. i

drug stores which sell drinks will re

The new order was made specially to
cover the cases of dealers who sell alcohol-containing
temperance drinks in
some of the large Eastern cities. It is
quqite the thing in some of these places
for ladles and others to get fairly strong
mixtures in these places. Collector
Chamberlain says that he does not
think i here is anything of the kind go
ing on here, but the order applies nev
ertheless. The circular says:
"An examination of facts in cases
which this office has recently had un
der consideration leads to the conclu
sion that a more stringent ruling is
demanded in regard to the sale by
druggists and others of beverages call
ed 'claret soda,' and other drinks sold
at soda fountains containing small
proportions of distilled spirits or wine
or compounds thereof.

WASHINGTON, D. C., Jan'. 6. Attorney General Knox has
addressed identical letters to Senator Hoar and Representative
Littlcfield, chairmen of the Senate and Plouse Committees on Ju
diciary respectively, suggesting legislation against corporations
giving or receiving advantages which enable discriminative prices
to be made. He especially urges such action against the com
mon carriers. The present laws are, he believes, insufficient. At
torney General Knox urges caution, however, in the development
of legislation which will correct the trust abuses. ' ,

HARRISBURG, Penn., Jan. 6. dovcrnor Stone's message to

upon the legislature the passage of an act making arbitration of

The calendar In the police
court this morning looked quite
formidable. No less than 85
eases (were before Judge Wll

not Involve a very arduous
morning however for out of that
list only ten different offences
Were charged. The volume of
cases was due to the fact that
49 defendants were charged with

ROBINSON IS TO PRESIDE AT THE FEBRUARY
TERM OF THE CIRCUIT COURT JUDGE GEAR IS
DESIGNATED TO HEAR CHAMBERS' AND PRO-
BATE MATTERS, AND SO WILL NOT PRESIDE
WHEN JAMES H.' BOYD'S TRIAL IS EXPECTED
TO COME UP.
Judge Robinson will preside at the next term of the First Cir
cuit, beginning on February 2, and not Judge Gear, as was gen
erally expected. This was decided this morning after a confer
ence of the judges. Gear will take the equity and probate mat
ters as he did last term, being the presiding judge at chambers
while the term leasts. The second judge is away at Waialua at
present, and has not yet signed the order appointing him to pre
side at chambers, but it is expected that he will sign it, and the
other two judges have already affixed their signatures and filed
Judge Gear holds that it is illegal for more than one judge of
the First Circuit Court to sit at once, and if he presided it would
mean that there could be only one judge hearing term matters
throughout the term. With Judge Robinson presiding Judge De.
Bolt call also sit, and by turning all probate matters over to Judge
Gear, the judges have arranged so that all three judges can be at
work. The order filed, signed by Judges De Bolt and Robinson,
with a blank space left for the signature of the second judge, is
"It is hereby ordered that all equity, probate and other cham
bers matters be and the same arc hereby assigned and transferred
to the Hon. Geo. D. Gear, Second Judge of this Court, for hear

the February, A. D. 1903, term of this Court, or any extension
thereof, and that the said Hon.- Geo. D. Gear, Second Judge as
aforesaid, be and he is hereby selected and designated as the pre
siding Judge at Chambers in this Court for and during the term
Henry E. Cooper sent his resignation to Washington as Secre
tary of the Territory on December 6, but he has not received any
reply up to this time.
The Supreme Court today took up one of the most important
questions raised before it for some time, being the matter of tiic
legality of sessions of more than one judge of the First Circuit
Court at once, in the case of Henry Smith vs. the Hamakua Mill
Company. For several terms there have been two judges on tnc
bench holding court at the same time, and if the Supreme Court
should hold that such sessions of court arc illegal a large number
of trials, both civil and criminal, would be invalidated.
An Inquest was held today to deter
