CUP.CHSLLLKGES IT IN END,

American Yachtsmen Scored by the

LONDON, Dec. 20 The greatest in
terest is manifested In jachllng circles
here In tho result of theAmerlia's Cup
Commlttco meeting to-daj, and tne As
soclated Press has been niiiestel to
keep the members of the syndicate chal
lenging for the cup promptly Informed of
the decision of the American jachtsmen
This svndleate l compoid of Ior.l

ica, Lord !onilip nhu Is also nut un
known In the Pnlleil Slates, Ixtrd Wot

and a prominent mail In the world nf

dale Is a thorough sportsman In very
thing he undertakes, mid It Ii quite
evldentthat he Is displacing great In
terest'ln the negotiations now going on
for another International race for the
Amelca's Cup Discussing the pros-,
pects of such a i onlest, Lord Lorisdale
said r .
"If the New York Yacht Club doV
not accept, the offer, which we have
after lung consultation been able to
make, there will not bo unother Inter
national yacht race for a generation.
"English yachtsmen, gencrallv. Indorse
the position trfken by the Itoval Yacht
Squadron, and we feel thajt we have
done everything possible to bring about
a satisfactory arrangement.
"It Is true that. If the Itoval Yacht
Squadron Is unable to bring a flout such
a match, the Itoyal Victoria Yacht
Club, the second of the Kngllsh yacht
clubs, or, perhaps, the Itoyal Dorset
Yacht Club, also a very prominent
organization, may challenge, because
many of the members of those two
clubs are not members of the Itoyal
Yacht Squadron. But It Is a question If
Cngllsh jachtsmen would approve of
such action. '
''In my opinion the Americans are dct
lng In a childish and unsportsmenllke
manner. We arc doing ever thing we
can to arrange a race. We absolutely
fall to understand why the American
yachtsmen cannot accept a challenge
which Is Identical with that of 1S92,
when they did not object and were, In
fact, quite willing to race tinder our
"The real reason. In my mind, for
the Americans' failure to accent our
challenge Is that we arc now too near
their best form of acht, and, they re
member that jiin the occasion or
the last serlM nf races for the America
Cup we wer? ,MU'..entlted to one
race, and tmly 6t through an acci
dent." "The stress (fie place "6rT the ten
months' cMuse Is due to the desire to
build threa or four bants as possible Cup
defenders, and to pick out the best of
tho lot to meet our boat. They cannot
build as fast as we can, and they dealre
all the delu possible,
"I have seen the criticism of the Amer
ican vachtsinen that Lord Dunraven
should have challenged earlier In order
to allow time ror corresponuence it
should be lemembercil many things had
to be considered before n s ndlcate could
bo formed, and thehe considerations
caused the delay complained of,
"I nave also seen Mr. A. Cass Can
lield's expression of surprise' that Lord
Dunraven was not willing to race In
November, though, according to Mr.
Car-field, Ixrd Dunraven was ahvavs
'clamoring for windy weather.' This
has,n" b-atlng on the question, and
Lord Dunravcn'd reluctance to race In
November Is simply due to the fact
that he la not willing to take the risk
of ordering the yacht to sail for home
"I do nit approve uf Lord Dunraven's
proposal to race for any trophy which
the American? may jiut.jip Ir.my
opinion, the nice should bo for the
America's Oup-only and I think, that
contest or .scries of contests tor uny
other trophy would be unsatisfactory,
to inchtumon on bpth sldeH of the At

that the trial of the Captain before

the Orand Jury, meant a poslble In

the next Captain to bo arrested on crim
The original adjournment of the Cap
tain's case before the Police Hoard, was
prompted by the fact that the chatges
against him were so Irregularly drawn
as to be almost worthies". Mr Wellman
wanted time to look them over.
This morning when the members of
the Hoard assomblcd In the trial room,
Mr Wellmar said"
' The more I see of these charges
against Capt, Westervelt the less con
fluence I have In them. 1 cannot see any
thing In the evidence as u lawver. to
Justify me In prosecuting the case at the
present time ''
The Commissioners announced an ad
