Since Sir Thomas Upton's? challenge yachtsmen have re sumed with new warmth the discussion H to the advisability of abandoning the historic course tit Sandy Hook for the more breezy neighborhood of Newport. This qu-sti' in will, of course, be settled Behind closed doors at a joint conference tt the tup committee of the New York 5'acht ci'jt). and a special committee of the Royal Ulster Yacht club. A course off Newport presents many Idvantafs. Good sai'.ir.e breezes are to be had in those waters almost any diy nd Bristol, not far from Newport.where Ihe HerreshofY shops are, afford every opportunity for quick repair of dam age. But there is a very serious draw tack. The stiff breezes off Newport of ten bring' fops which preclude racine. Moreover racing cn the Sandy Hook course means many more spectators than would be the case off Newport. These conditions make it more than likely the old course will be chosen. ENGLISH CABINET.

If these repairs are not rr.a.l- soon a much larger !iim will be needed to keep it from falling into ruin.

MVS DR. DOWIE'S SCHEME. Will Establish Lace Malting Industry at Zion City. New York. Oct. 22. Dr. rowie, says a London dispatch to the Herald, at tempted to convince a refractory audience in Hoi born town hall that Eng land bad much to learn from America. They refused to listen, but noisily in sisted his suggestions were neitherChria tianity nor Zionism. Finaily four men had to be t-jeeted. Before dismissing his audience Dr. Dowie stated that eighty-two skilled Nottingham lace workers would leave for Zion City, 111., early in November. "Secretary Gage." said he, "has in structed the commissioner of immigra tion to keep hands off these pilgrims. He told me that Zion will be permitted to land all the imported labor It wants to the United States." With respect to this last statement, a dispatch from Washington to the Herald says: That Dr. Dowie can bring- workmen in to the United States under contract is true so far as it applies to Nottingham laceworkera. There is a provision in the alien contract labor law expressly per mitting the bringing into the United States under contract of men who are skilled in an industry which ia not established in the United States, and which it ia proposed to establish. Dr. Dowie told the officials of the treasury department that there were no men in the United States skilled in Nottingham lace work and in order to enable him to establish the industry here he v as authorized to bring men into tha United States under contract. LENIENT AT PRESENT But Game Laws Will Be Strictly En forced Next Season. Chicago. Oct. 22. There is a great deal of uncertainty among game dealers in this city as to the construction of the federal law in reference to handling game from states where shipment is prohibited. Missouri and Nebraska are known as op-n states, and game which comes from them is usually let alone. However, the federal law known as the Lacey act, is strict and requires that all packages of game shall designate the amount of game in each. Thus far no seizures have been made under the Lacey act in Chicago. So far as is known State Game Commissioner Loveday is taking no active steps. To learn just what the government intended to do in this matter a letter of inquiry was sent to Secretary Wilson of the de partment of agriculture. Following is an extract from Secretary Wilson's reply: I am in receipt of your letter of recent date in which you request a statement as to the steps taken by this department to enforce the act of congress approved on May 25, 1300. commonly known as the "Lacey act." Since the majority of offenses against game laws are due sim ply to ignorance of the restrictions im posed for the protection of game- oui efforts thus far have been directed main ly toward preventing rather than prose cuting such violations. Our object has been to make the laws more generally j known and o bring game protective as sociations iti-o closer touch with, one an other. Although congress has thus far made no special appropriation for carrying the Lacey act into effect, there is ample pro- : vision for dealing w tih violations whicn I may arise under it. The construction of this letter by the j few game dealers in Chicago who have i seen it is that the federal authorities are ! inclined to be lenient this season, but ! to sew up tight the shipments next sea- ; son.

There Is much discussion of the Anglo-German agree ment, but there are few fresh details, says the London correspondent of tha Tribune. While Russia and France wTere acting with the other poewrs it was known that they were in alliance with each other under secret conditions and would support eaoh other. It is now equally clear that Germany and England, while anxious to co-operate with, the other powers, are also in alliance with each other Tor definite ends, which are jus tifiedly enlightened. Diplomatic coalit ions are not liked ordinarily in Eng land, where the very real and trust worthy alliance is believed to be with the colonies within the empire. "Mag nificent isolation" was a phrase which appealed strongly to British pride. The new dual alliance is well received by the press because the principles upon which it is based are warmly approved and also because the obligations and lia bilities impose-i by the third article are vaguely understood. But there is an in stinctive recoil among ' Englishmen against permanent coalitions with con tinental powers, useful and honorable as this one may be in the present emerg ency. The moral support of the principles of this alliance from the etate depart ment is expected with confidence, but tha American government's freedom of action and independence of all entang ling alliances will be respected, certain ly in England; possibly even envied. Foreign opinion on the agreement is so far as it is known favorable on the whole. It is difficult to gauge the ex act view of the Russian foreign office, and no word has yet come from Japan, but it is abundantly clear that Austria approves of the new dual alliance, Y. W. C. A.

Western Turf Man Delighted With English Racing. New York, Oct. 22. Edward Corrigan. the western turfman, who has raced a stable of horses in England this year and has just returned, expresses himself as delighted with his experience at the English courses. "During ail my rac ing," he said, "I never saw turf affairs so well conducted. British turfmen are admirable gentlemen, particularly anx ious to be fair, and their treatment of visiting turfmen is cordial to an ex treme. "Since my return I have heard that Lord Durham has made charges against American turfmen. Lord Durham is a good man who has the reputation of be ing considerable of a radical. I know just what is causing the trouble. A lot of American "touts' that were chased from the tracks of this country have in vaded England. The sooner the English Jockey club takes action against those fellows, the better it will be for the turf interests everywhere. As for the Amer ican jockeys I do not see what fault can be found with their work. They have been riding to win out and, to say the least, have been fairly successful. The Jockey club is very strict and the boys have to govern themselves accordingly. "It i3 not unlikely that in the future there will be more swerving than in the past, for the reason that the races are being run differently. Now. it is racing all the way. just as it is here, and in bruising finishes tired horses are likely to swerve more or less. But it will be obligatory upon the boys to keep their lines as nearly as possible on even on tired horses, and be careful not to per mit their mounts to interfere with other horses, or risk not only disqualification, but suspension. I am glad it is so, be cause it makes racing clean and fair," WASIIBUKN DISAPPOINTED.
