TO STICK TO SAXDT HOOK.
The Coming Yacht Kacea Will Be
Held Over Old Course.
New York. Oct. 22. 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.
Idle Speculation on Its Composition
Still Indulged In.
New York. Oct. 22. Lord Salisbury's
diplomatic success In making terms
with Germany and intervening in the
China negotiations, with authority si
lences ail taik about his retirement from
the foreign office. says the Tribune's
London correspondent. The most indus
trious cabintt makers now admit that
be cannot be spared from that office and
that he must be allowed to hold it and
the premiership as long as possible. Lord
Lansdowne is now relegated by the ru
mor monsrers to Dublin. Lord Balfour
tf Burleigh is named for the war office,
and Mr. Ritchie for the admiralty. Mr.
Vyndham and Mr. Broderick are pro
moted to the cabinet. Kach day produces
a new combination from the friends of
Stnabitious or restless statesmen.
SEGllOES AROUSED.
Protest Against Heekless Shooting of
Portland Police.
Portland. Ore.. Oct. 22. While at
tmptinsf to escape arrest last night
Rudd Murray, a colored porter, was sr. t
In the back and seriously wounded by
bullets from the revolvers of Patrolmen
Warner and Patten who were in pursuit.
Murray was innocent of any offense oth
er than a public quarrel with his wife
end the shooting was the direct result of
bis attempt to escape from the officers
when called upon to halt.
The shootinar aroused great indigna
tion among: the colored people of the
north end, and the policemen are charg
ed by the colored people with a wanton
and reckless use of their firearms.
DEPENDS ON ELECTION.
Choice of Next President General of

New York. Oct. 22 Whichever wav
the presidential election goes may deride
who is ti be the next president gren
eraJ r- the I'aughu-rs of the American
J.evo'utijn. says a special from Wash

It has be-n decided by many of the
leading- memhers to p.sk either Mrs.
I'.oosevelt or Mrs. Bryan to fid this posi

the organization but both are eligible,
end one of the board of ftiana sera has
just made the statement that within the
last week papers have ben made cut

IT IS DEPLORABLE.
Condition of Statue of Liberty Re
quires Expenditure of $100,000.
New York. Oct. 22. The Journal and
Advertiser says:
Barthoidi-s statue of Mbertv on Bed
loe's Island is in a d-jpiorshle" condition
and an exir.diture cf JlOo.ooo wi: bs
required to put it in proper repair. If
these repairs are not rr.a.l- soon a much
larger !iim will be needed to keep it
from falling into ruin.
The only reason for this deplorable
condition of affairs is that ther- is no
fnoney for the use of the committee to
whom is entrusted the proper care of th
gift of the French republic.
Several efforts have been made in
years past to have cor. cress appropriate

SAID HE. - - -
We really felt quite sorry for the fellow,
although he was really not entitled to any
sympathy. He had been in the high-priced
district, and bought a suit of clothes for glo.
He was pleased with it until he came into
our store with a friend who wanted a hat,
and seeing the same identical suit in our
window for $13.00, he said to his friend;
"Kick me real hard."
Well, people learn by experience, and
experience costs something.
How is it with you ? Have you been in
the habit of paying $2.00 or 93.00 of a fancy
margin ? You certainly have, if you have
not been here. Come and see us. See what
we have, and how much better we can do
for you than other stores.

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.

MAGNIFICENT ISOLATION
Was England's Programme But It
Wouldn't Work.
New York. Oct. 22. 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,

COKllIGAN PLEASED.
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.
