THE BUTTE INTER MOUNTAIN
VOL. XXII. No. 311. BUTTE, MONTANA, T ESDAY MARCH 17, 1903. PRICE FIVE CENTS WITH WINE AND WATER New Cup Challenger Slides From Ways Into Her Element. LIPTON IS PLEASED Declares New Boat Can not Possibly Lose to the Defender. SHOWERED BY RAIN Launching of British Yacht Witnessed by an En thusiastic Crowd. Glasgow, March sy.-The Shamrock III was launched at :r S o'clock today. "Large crowds gathered at Denny's yards at Dunbarton in spite of the drench ing rain, which, however, ceased before the arrival of the special visitors' train. Sir Thomas Lipton escorted Lady Shaftes bury to the christening dais. Among others on the platform were the Earl and Countess of Madrandkellie, Lord Overton, Lord Provost of Glasgow, the Hon. Charles Russell, Reginald Ward, William Fife and Captain Wringe and Captain Bevis. At t :iS o'colck p. m. Lady Shaftesbury broke the bottle saying: "I christen you Shamrock III. May God bless you, and may you uring back the cup." Amid loud cheering the Shamroc, ill slid easily into the water. After more cheering the visitors proceeded to luncheon. An examination of Shamrock III. as the yacht was revealed in the launching shed, confirmed the previous despatches of the Associated Press on the subject and showed that Fife had struck out bold ly on entirely novel lines instead of trying to tinker or improve on either of the previous Lipton challengers. Like her predecessors, however, the Shamrock III. is built close up to the go-foot line limit. Her length of over all is 24o feet. The most striking feature of the challenger Is here extremely short fin. It is just so feet long. Her draught is io feet and the fin is almost level along the bottom. The lead in the hull is drawn well down to the fin, suggesting the deep body typical of the British cutter rather than the ex trme flat floored type adapted from the American center board yachts and used in all the recent challengers. The American wheel steering for the first time replaces the British tiller and the lesson learned with the Shamrock II., through her pounding in head seas has led to a longer and finer drawn bow, giving the challenver the appearance of being a boat capable of navigating comfortably any moderate sea. With lesser draught and not so flat floored as the previous Shamrocks, the challenger will not have so much stability, so Fife has either gone in for a light weather boat or he has cut down her sail area. There are daring and novel features in the design, the effect of which cannot be accurately gauged, ex cept by actual trial. They suggest the possibility of difficulty in getting the new boat to trim, steer and carry her canvas. If, however, she accomplishes these ob jects well, she will prove to be by far the most formidable challenger ever sent out. The under body of the Shamrock III. Is painted with a white anti-fouling composition. Her topsides are white and she has broad bands of green along the water line and rail. Her hull, frames and balliards are of nickel steel and especially made. The deck is of aluminum plates, covered with wood fibre, which gives a safe foothold. She is superb in every de tail, no dent, rivet or joint is visible under polish of her paint. After the launching Sir Thomas Lipton said to a correspondent of the Associated Press: "My third and perhaps my last attempt at lifting the America's cup will be the most serious and, I think, most hopeful of my efforts. The Reliance may beat us, but it will not be because I have not got the best boat British brains and workmen can produce. If America's cup stays in America it will be because of the extraordinary genius of the American yacht builders. If he can produce a still further improvement in his art 'I shall be. gin to think that he is a bit more than human. There is no question but that the best boat wins in the international races. I believe that the Shamrock III. will come near filling that bill. To my mind she is a marvel in which Fife and Watson have outdone themselves. With good trial races and no accidents her ar rival in New York should mark the com ing of the most formidable challenger ever sent over. I scarcely need add that as much as I long to win and expect to win, a third defeat will only increase my admiration for a people who can beat us at a game that was once our own. "However," he added, laughing, "the third defeat is of course quite out of the questicn." In a speech after the luncheon, Sir Thomas said the America's cup must now be sick. He had learned a lesson from the past and they were never more con fident. They had fifty years' experience with American yachts and American yachtsmen, and none would cheer a vic torious Shamrock more heartily than the Americans. The toast, "King Edward and President Roosevelt," was drunk with musical honors. The lord provost proposed suc cess to Shamrock and her owner, saying the only thing Sir Thomas Lipton ever failed to do was to lift the cup. He hoped Sir Thomas would crown the trinity of Sbhamrocks by attaining the friendly supremacy in British and American waters Jich hbe so dearly coveted.

BY ASho('IA'I E1D I't hM. Ruffalo, March 17.- -The officersa have learned that Mrs. Edwin i.. Ituadick had assigned a portion of the insurance held by her husbald. In the first place, it is said, half of the estimated $45,ol was made payable to the children.
