Yacht Club Will Give the Boston
Boat a Chance—Will Probably
Race Off Newport—How
the Matter Was
Adjusted.
(Special to the Inter Mounta n.)
New York. May 23.—The Independence
Will take part in the trial races, notwith
standing reports to the contrary. The
cup committee of the New York Yacht
club yesterday discussed the Lawson
case but withheld a statement as to the
conclusion reached.
It is learned unofficially, however,
that Mr. Lawson will participate in the
trial races June 15 at Newport and ar
rangements will be made for Mr Law
son's boat to participate in the other
races.
The cup committee it is said realized
that the contest was an international
one and not confined to the New York
club. It was also Sir Thomas Lipton's
wish that the Independence be not ex
cluded.
Speaking of this matter, a member of
the New York Yacht club, who .s thor
oughly informed said:
"The friction that developed in the
mayor of the Independence has been
most unfortunate, but although the com
mittee having this matter in hand has
not made an official announcement, the
matter has been greatly simplified by
the action of the Newport Yacht Racing
association, and the plan of campaign
WILL GRAN T LIP TON TIME
New York Yacht Club Will Postpone
Cup Races Until Shamrock
Is Repaired.
(By Associated Press.)
New York, May 23.—Sir Thomas Lip
ton cabled the New York Yacht club last
night that he was afraid that he would
have to ask for a few weeks' grace ow
ing to the accident to Shamrock II. yes
terday.
Secretary Oddie, when asked what ac
tion the New York club would take on
the request of Sir Thomas Lipton, an
swered that all he could do was to point
to the cablegram sent by the New York
Yacht club to Sir Thomas Lipton. He
said that the club would wait further
advice from Lipton.
When asked if further time would be
granted to Sir Thomas Lipton. he replied
that all that was just and sportsmanlike
would be done. He aVnitted that all the
time, in reason, Sir Thomas Lipton re
quired. would be granted.
The following answer to Sir Thomas'
cablegram was sent by President Led
yard:
"We all sincerely regret the new Sham
rock's accident. Glad no one was injured
and trust the result to the yacht is not
serious. Will await further advice from
you before further action."
TO ABOLISH SUND AY RACING
A Newark, N. J., Chief Justice Says
Bicyclists Must Observe the
Saobath.
(By Associated Press.)
New York, May 23.—Chief Justice De
Pue of Newark, X. J., has taken action
which will probably result in abolishing
races on the bicycle track on Sunday.
Some weeks ago the people of Vailes
burg complained to the chief of police
ot Sunday racing at the track. He re
fused to interfere, and the matter teas
taken to Chief Justice Depue, who or
dered Sheriff Virtue to visit the track
and make a report.
The report of the sheriff was to the
effect that there was no disorder, but
the chief jiAtice said that the families
Jiving in the neighborhood of the track
were entitled to protection if they asked
it.
ROEBER AND TURK &I0UR0ULAH
They Are Matched to Wrestle Graeco
Roman Style in New York
Tomorrow Night.
(Special to the Inter Mounta'n.)
New York, May 23.—Martin Julian's
wrestling monster, Nouroulah, the Turk
and Ernest Roeber will wrestle tomorrow
night. The match was arranged be
tween the two principals, Julian and Wil
liam R ieber a brother of the wrestler.

him four times in an hour, and it was

in this matter is practically settled, al
though subject to revision according to
clrcttîftî. tances.
"The Newport Yacht Racing associa
tion will Invite the cup defender to race,
and this practically will be the first trial
race ln which the Independence will
participate.
"Shold she prove a victor, opportunity
will be given her by the New York
Yacht club. Mr. Butler Duncan. Jr.,
has expressed himself as not willing to
have other races but the first on Long
Island Sound, maintaining that these
waters offer but narrow reaches and not
sufficient open water for a fair trial.
"The Independence will undoubtedly
be given every chance to show her su
periority, if it exists. In the event of
her proving a victor at these trials, all
that Mr. Lawson will be asked to do
is to place her ln the hands of the Cup
committee, it not being necessary to
sell her to the club. According to the
articles of agreement she would un
doubtedly have to fly the New York
Yacht club flag.
"Mr. W. Rutler Duncan, Jr., has ex
pressed his intentions of not playing any
favorites, and freely voices his willing
ness to meet the Independence anywhere
in suitable waters.
"In case of a victory for the Inde
pendence. it will not he the first time
that the New York Yacht club has built
a challenger and then seen the laurels
represented by the Ameriean'c Cup de
fended by a better boat built in Boston."
-ides gave in a point and compromised
n three fads.
Nouroulah guarantees to throw Roeber
hree times within sixty minutes of actual
wrestling time, straight Groceo-Roman
rules, on a mat twenty feet square and
all falls either on or off the mat to count
with no holds barred. The Turk must pin
Roebet's shoulders to the floor before he
can win. If the Turk fails to accomplish
the task he is to forfeit to Roeber his
entire share of the receipts.

TO CROSS BATS T O A FINISH
Southern Hotel Miners and Davis and
Weimescary Teams Will Battle
on the Diamond.
It will be a battle royal. It will be
fought at the baseball grounds Sunday
morning at 9 o'clock and the contenders
will 1 be the aggregation of spheroid
chasers from the hardware firm of Davis
& Weimescary and the horse hide toss
ers known as the Southern Hotel Miners.
Both teams are confident of victory and
each team trusts the other implicitly.
For that reason two umpires have been
selected. They will be Dan Tewey, pro
prietor of the Southern hotel, and Jack
Weimescary. Tewey will, of course, see
to it that the hardware combination
does not get the worst of it, and Weim
escary has declared his intention of giv
ing all the best of it to the hotel crowd.
The latter team is not quite sure of
the intentions of the umpire from the
nail keg district, however, and has writ
ten him a neat little note of admonition,
in which it is stated that he must offici
ate in an honest and thoroughly satis
factory manner or lie led to the block.
The umpires will insist that the game be
played under strict Marquis of Queens
berry rules, all spiking barred. The um
pires will occupy cages. The teams will
line up as follows:
Davis & Weimescary—F. Austin,
catcher; L. Claybourne, pitcher; L.
Royce, first base; Foley, second base; J.
Claybourne, third base; E. Morrison,
shortstop; J. Collins, center field: E.
Claybourne, left field; H. Lambrecht,
right field.
Southern Hotel Miners—Robert Co
burn, catcher; W. Dolley, pitcher; L.

base: F. Gleason, third base; John
Lloyd, shortstop; C. Mack, right field:
