Butler Duncan Brcke the Bot. tie of Champagne on the Yacht's Bows and Christened Her-Exact Measuremrents of the Racer Have Not Been Officially Announced-Car. ries 14,500 Square Feet of Sail. Bristol, R. I., May 7.--With her hull gaily decorated with flags and her deck well filled with sailors, the yacht Constitution was christened by Mrs.. W. Butler Duncan, who broke the tra ditional bottle of wine on her glisten ing bow just as she started slowly down the ways into the sea. A plat form had been rigged under the bow of the boat and on this Mrs. Duncan stood when the gong was sounded. Beside her on the plttform was her husband, the manager of the new boat, but all the rest of t"o party stood a little distance off. At the sound of the gong Mrs. Duncan dashed a bottle of champagne against the yacht's bow and as the wine gushed in sparkling foam on the prow the sleek racer ac quired motion and slowly began her descent into the water. With the breaking of the bottle Mrs. Duncan in a clear voice said: 'I christen thee Constitution." The scene was a bril liant one as the Constitution was slow ly lowered into the water. the cheer ing feom th", boats outside being loud and vig ~'out-, while the searchligLt Sfrom the team yacht Colonia just out side ti ..ock illnminated the stern of the Constitution. Rockets and other fireworks added not a little to the gaiety of the occasion. Is Exquisitely Balanced. The interest in the launching, aside from the first dip, was in the lineI S.f the Constitution. It was easily seen that the Herreshoffs have turned out a craft that is exquisitely balanced rand will be nervously responsive to the slightest touch of the -helm. In fact, she will spin around in a manner' amazingly swift to a man who lacks i' experience in the ways of a down-to date Herreshoff flyer and takes his f first trick at her wheel. t The exact measurements of the Con- I stitution have not been officially an nounced, but her approximate dimen sions are: Length on the load water a line, 90 feet; length over all, 133 0 feet; greatest beam, 25 feet; draught when on the 90 feet line of flotation, t 20 feet; sail area, 14,500 square feet n or thereabouts. The Columbia was 89.66 feet on the tI load water line with a draught of 20 fi feet; length over all, 132 feet; beam, n 23.17 feet. She carried 13,140 square feet of duck. FIERCF FIGlHT ENDED. Gas Lighting Companies of Cincinnati Consolidate. Cincinnati, May 7.-The fierce fight G between the gas lighting companies of Cincinnati has been ended by the ratification by the stockholders of the Cincinnati Gas Light and Coke com pany o.f the plan proposed for a con solidation of all the companies.

Washington, May 7.-It is learned from an authoritatite source that be fore Secretary Hay left here for the West he had several conferences with Lord Pauncefote relative to the basis for another isthmian canal treaty, and :hat an unofficial written memor andum also was submitted to Lo'd SPauncefote on the subject. The am bass, dor has made known the genera: results of these conversations and of the memorandum to the authorities il London. It is said, however, that. I the :egotiations are so tentative and info: mat that they are not regarded as an official exchange or proposition. Wha: they embody is not made known here, though it is understood they are chiefly an exposition of the views held by United States senators to the essential features which should be lncluded in a treaty. While this is not a proffer of a trea ty it conveys to the British authori ties what is considered essential by the senators who control the ratifica tion of any treaty which will be made. It also is learned indirectly from sen ators who have been consulted that among the chief features in the nego tiations are a neutralizing of the ca nal. the United States alone undertak ing to guarantee this neutrality and the admission of all shipping on an equal basis with that of the United States. Although, as stated, these confer ences and the written memorandum have been exchanged, it is not ex pected there will be any further nego tiations prior to Lord Pauncefote's departure for London. which ocurs on June 5, or during his absence. The British embassy will remove to New port as soon as the ambassador leaves. Mr. Gerard A. Lowther will be Brit ish charge d'affaires during Lord Pauncefote's absence. CAN GIVE NO REASON. J. J. M!ill Interviewed on the Rise in Northern Pacific Stock. New York, May 7.-Soon after Northern Pacific sold at 125 a reporter spoke with President J. J.

"Sold at 125, did it?" said Mr. Hill in an interested way. "I did not know it.had gone so high." ( Mr. Hill declared that he had no in formation to give as to the cause of the remarkable rise in the quotations. Answering a question on this point Mr. Hill said: "No, I know nothing new and have no information as to the special cause of the rise." Directors and others connected with the management said, as have the managing interests of the other stocks which have scored great rises, that they could not account for the demand for the shares and knew of no devel n.m.nfe o ffnotina the nrnortyv CANDY CATHARTIC '4 Oe. . * Dh-a.,l Genuine stamped C.
