"Lord Dunraven dld nol express his feedngs s i

Mr. AakWtth Bll iWSd so msrkald a dislnollna

There dld nol aeem to be much interest manl
fested sround the hoteis yesterdsy in th>- Dun?
raven eaae. Tho fact that tho teSSlona av,- lj-11
behlnd closed doora aad that nothing antheiiti??
can be learned, has not made ihe publle more
rurioua in the matter, A little group of well
known aportamen were aaated la the csfd of
the Brunswlck yeaterday, and the Dunraven
csae was mentloned. one member of the party, a
well-known yacntlng man, and one oonveraant
with all that la golng on, made the following
romment: "I seo the opinion la general Ihsl the
K.iri of Dunraven has falled t>> prove hla caaa
snd 1ih< gone home in a huff. When ho made

American publle waa charitablo enough to bs
lle\e that ho had b",>n mJsquoted In tho paper
which publlahed his iharues. When he relter
a;,d them i: waa Ol ly naturai that the men ac
i-used sh iuM be angry, and that the mon who
aro membera ,,f th<- club which laaued the chal
lenge, ahould bo sffronted. All thal aaved the
Bari of Dunraven from being expelled ;is an
honorsry member ...' the yaehl club, i belleve,
was the fact that ho was appareiitly Btnci re In
hls elaim, and that he at once placed blmaelf in
ilie handa of tho oommlttee for an Inveatlgstton,
and offered to OOQM over,
"Fnder those condltions he could not be dl
vestod of membeiship, as he apparently was
maklng a plea for Justke. If, however. ha fSJla
to prove hls c.ise, as it BOema he has. then he ll
atni op?n to c indemnstloa for his actlon. if
lt is proved. and, of c lurse, this is only auppoal
tion, that the Fari of Dunraven'a chsrgea sre
nn founded >n fact, and that ho brought them
simply ln a vlndlctlve nianni-r. then 1 OSU s'-o
no reason why tha club ahould not take aome sc
tion regardlng his memberahip."
The report of the Inveetlgatlng .omniittee wlll
bo swalted wlth greal Interest by many ysohts
men, if for n., other r.-as. :i thsn tit.it many
beiieve Lord Dunraven'a tonur.- of memberahip

a siiiRle oll of evldence will l e adduced that
wlll Hff.-ct the ayndlcate; bul many aro inolined
to tak,> ii charitahle vlew of tne altustlon, They
belleve that the Karl was mlsiel, anl that he
jnado the eharges in good faith. and that once
dlaproved, he wlll i. among the ilrst to adtnowl
edge he waa Wrong. That is tho way many
yschtamen have exiues.'er' thomsehes in relatlon
to the chargea brought by tho Barl. x i one

him from th?. club, bui a'l aro incllned to wall
