Attorney General Palmer after a
brief conference late in the day with
coai men announced he had called an

"thorough." Ho added:

Sir Thomas Lipton, owner of Shamrock IV, and his guests aboard the yacht Victoria cheering the Resolute and
her crew* after the defender's victory yesterday.

Fails to Cover
Grief at Defeat

day for the Shamrock colors. At the :
very critical moment in the race the;
club topsail of Shamrock fluttered i
momentarily in the teeth of a sudden I
squal, and then came down. It was at !
this moment that she was actually !
overhauling Resolute, and practically i
the very same second Resolute was !
compelled to come up in the wind with
trouble in her staysails. Had the club
topsail of Shamrock h?->ld she might
have turned in a winner.
Sir Thomas watched this anxiously, \
a puzzled expression written across the :
lines in his face. He turned to his ad- :
visers, but they, too, were apparently
unable to explain, although theories
were put forward later. This was the
critical moment of the race, and Sir
Thomas knew it.
Later after the race was ended a !
crazy yawl with a small motor in it
deliberately cut across the bows of the
Victoria, while the latter was running
full speed. It looked absolutely certain
the yawl would be run down and the |
guests aboard the Lipton yacht held
their breath in tremulous expectation '
of the crash.
The yawl cleared by less than a foot, '
while its occupants looked up and
jeered at the Victoria. A few minutes
later the same yawl tried to repeat
the maneuver in front of a coast guard
cutter, but at the critical moment;
thought better of it and sheered off. ?
This was the only bad incident in a'
well policed course.
Sir Thomas ordered his captain to \
steam into Sandy Hook Horseshoe Ray
so that he could cheer the victorious !
Resolute and her crew. The Resolute
was already moored to her buoy ..hen
the Victoria arrive?!. Captain Adams
was about to step into the launch along?
side, when a thunderous cheer broke
out on the Victoria.
He stepped back on board the trim :
white sloop and called out to his men, \
"Now, then, boys, three cheers for
Shamrock! "
Just before Sir Thomas began his
customary session with the newspaper
men, Commodore Aemilttls Jarvis, of ;
the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, one |
of the Irish baronet's advisers, ex- ;
plained the dropping of the club top- :
.-ail on Siu mrock in the following man?
"Captain Burton did exactly the cor
r?ct tiling. A heavy squall was ap-i
proaching. Ho probably figured to him- j
self as fellows: 'I've got to allow Reso?
lute seven minutes on the handicap
and I simply won't be able to do it,
as it standt now. Here's the squall j
coming, I will douse my club topsail.'
"Had the squall struck the two I
yachts with full force, it would have
torn the masts out of them with the j
topsail up. Resolute, by keeping her3 j
up, took this chance. If she had been
struck, Burton would have walked
away with the race, as he was then ;
in a condition to meet the squall.
Burton Took a Chance
"Fortunately only the edge of the ;
squall reachc'l the yachts, and it then ?
petered out. Burton took the gambler's ;
chance, and if it had come out he
would have been the smartest man go- ,
ing. As it was he was unable to set,
his club topsail again and was com- |
pelled to use his working topsail in its
The daily conversational tilt between
Sir Thomas Lipton and Lord Dewar ;
lacked much of its humorous character
yesterday during the session with the ;
reporters, and was almost serious j
throughout. At the outset, however, j
Lord Dewar hastened to make the fol- ?
lowing statement:
"The magnificent manner in which |
the course has been policed and the j
perfect arrangements and organization j
for keeping the crowd back is a system j
that is worthy of emulation in Europe. |
I have never seen anything like it be- |
fore. I admire particularly the manner!
in which your navy has cooperated ?
and the perfect work the dstroyers I
have performed.
"There is another sentiment I want
to express and that is my admiration
for the sporting instincts of the Ameri- '?
can woman. It is remarkable to realize
that they get up between 4 and 5
o'clock every morning and stay under |
every inconvenience to watch these
races, especially when they do not get
home from the course until around
"It is much more than we can say
of European women. It is a long day
for a man, let alone a woman. The
sporting instinct of the American
woman is surprising and admirable.";
Sir Thomas hastened to add his own ;
admiration to that of Lord Dewar.
"I've raced many years in all parts of
the world," he said, "but I've never
been on any course that has been kept
clearer than in these waters. There is
no place In the world where the ar?
rangements approach it.
"I've never seen such a good course
in England."
Assuming a lighter vein, Sir Thomas
"If I should be fortunate enough to
win to-morrow oh! there'll be a jazz
dance on board here alright."
Then, turning to Lord Dewar. he
added, with a twinkle in his eye: "And
I positively know none of us will be ;
sober, eh, Tom?" <
Then, turning to Margaret Strick- !
land, the young Boston reporter, whom j
he addressed a? "Boston," Sir Thomas J
"Just before you go to sleep to?
night, Boston, put in an extra word .
for me.
"You know, I am coming to Boston. :
I'm going to stand for S< nator there. |
I want to be in a position to forgive j
them there for all that they did to my
friends who were in the tea business." I
_ Assuming a confidential tone, he
then said: "There's a report current
on board to-day that Lord Dewar is
engaged to three women b"re."
"1 know you boys won'*; say any?
thing about it. Whisky Tom is worried '.
about it though because he can't marry
them all unless he goes to Utah."
Breaking in, Lord Dewar said:
"I've jus!, returned from Africa,
where I have been living with the
savages for some. time. There they
pay eight cows for a wife, and if she j
has no children within a year the hus
band takes her back to her rather and j
demands his cows back.''
"Don't you go to that, country,'' said ;
Sir Thomas, looking at some of the!
young women present.
Sir John Ferguson, one of Sir
Thomas's guests, who was present at
the interview for the first time, then
broke in and said:
"I've known Sir Thomas Lipton for
nearly a quarter of a century. He is a
first class sportsman. He will fight to
the finish and he will fight fair. He
has never wished to take the slightest
advantage of any one in a contest. He
always wants to treat his opponent in j
the same manner as he likes to be
treated himself.
"That's why he's as popular on the
other side as it appears to me he is on
George Kessler a Guest
Among the guests aboard the Vic- ;
torta yesterday was George Kessler,
foreman of a coal hoist in Philadelphia, i
Seventeen years ago Sir Thomas :
bought a newspaper from Kessler, who !
was then a newsboy," tendered a dollar
for it and eclined to accept the change.!
Kessler bet the dollar on Shamrock III
against Reliance, and lost. He was in- I
vited aboard yesterday by Sir Thomas, j
During the race the Irish baronet |
posed for motion pictures with Kessler,.
and then came over to the newspaper
men and introduced him. "Here's a
line young lad," he said. "He is the ]
type I admire. He is Working hard to
make good for the sake of his folks
and himself, and he is gradually climb?
ing the ladder. I like his type far bet- j
ter than any blue-blooded snob."
? Two other interesting guests yester- |
day were Uunice and Agnes, two !
daughters of John ("Honey Fits") Fitz- |
gerald, former Mayor of Boston. Their !
father was run over recently by a |
motor truck while saving some women j
and children, lie was knocked unco.;- '
scious, and his first words on recovery
in the hospital were*. "That's too bad;
now I'll miss Lipton's races."
Sir Thomas met Mr. Fitzgerald some
years ago at ("owes during a regatta
there. Describing the incident yester?
day Sir Thomas said: "I had a num?
ber of American guests aboard my
yacht Erin at the time. My captain
came to me and said: 'Sir Thomas, the
royal bargo has just left the pier and
is headed this way. It looks as though ;
his Majesty is coming aboard the Erin. I
"I told my guests and the ladies j
crowded around me and asked how they j
should meet the King. The men asked j
me what they should say. I showed
the ladies how to curtsey. Then they
all went below and put on their very !
best clothes. My cantain put on his !
best uniforrwwith the shiniest buttons, j
Confiscated King's Launch
"Presently the royal barge drew up
alongside, and out stepped?not the
King, but Maylor Fitzgerald of Bos-;
"Afterward he told me that he heard
I wan at Cowes and having some spare
time decided to come and see me. He
said he walked along the shore looking
for my launch, but decided that none
were good enough for mine. When he
found the best looking one, he decided
it was mine and stepped in, directing
the crew to take him over to Sir;
Thomas Lipton aboard the Erin.
"The crew, seeing him walk straight
up the royal pier to the launch, nat?
urally thought he had received permis-I
sion from the King. Later told the
i King about the incident and he laughed
heartily at it. 'None but an American
could do that,' he said."
There was a record number of guests
aboard the Victoria yesterday. Aside
from thi' it was apparently a more
uneventful day than any previous one
during the races. There was a little
gloom at starting time, when a thick
tog settled about tiie lightship.
This quickly cleared and the fifteen-I
minute signal was set. When the start- j
ing whistle sounded, Shamrock passed
over the line in the windward berth,
and there was great joy aboard the '
Victoria. This was shortlived, how-1
ever, as Shamrock immediately ran into !
an air pocket and rested momentarily ?
becalmed. Resolute was more fortunate
and quickly gained the weather berth ;
after a short tack. This was the be- |
ginning cf Shamrock's ill-luck that per- j
sisted throughout the race.
Steamer Cabrille Aground

ATLANTIC CITY, July 23.?When
the fog lifted, about f> p. m. to-day, the j
United States Shipping Board steam?
ship Cabrille, bound from Mexican |
ports to Bayonne, N. J., was discovered I
htrrd and fast aground, about four miles J
off Brigantine.
The vessel had been there since S
a. in., but had sent up no distress'
signals, except to summon a tug from
New York by wireless. A boat was ;
sent out from the Coast Guard station;
as soon as her plight was discovered, :
and returned ?.vith tr>e information that !
the ship was in no danger and prob- j
ably would be hauled off at high tide
, about 2 a. m, to-morrow.

Poland Sends
Peace Offer
To Bolsheviki
(Continued from puge ont)
cussed at the conference, it is under?
stood, but nothing specitic was agreed
upon. Whatever action the United
States decides to take, it was said, will
be independent of action on the part
of Great Britain and France.
Although plans for furnishing ma
terial assistance were touched upon,
Prince Lubomirski made no formal ap- :
peal for such aid.
The question of neutrality toward!
Russia will not interfere seriously!
with the carrying out of the American!
government plans, it was explained.
Attention was called to the fact that !
American troops were sent to Russia |
to fight Bolshevism Without consider- !
ing tiie question of neutrality and that i
American support of Poland in the ;
war would conform with this nation's :
well known opposition to Bolshevism.
The prince discussed the possibility
of the United States giving Poland
credit for supplies and of hnving the i
United States dispose of surplus mili
tary supplies outright to Poland.
If any financial aid is rendered Po?
land by the United States it will be ;
from private banking sources, it was '?
made clear at the State Department.
No specific request has been made nor
has any movement been started to se- I
cure banking credit for Poland in the i
United States, it was said. An at- ?
tempt to float a loan of $50,000,000 for ;
Poland is now under way in this coun- !
try, but the extension of credits dis- ;
cussed to-day would be in addition to
the funds raised through the sale of:
The United States could furnish large ?
quantities of munitions from its sur- ?
plus, it. was said, and some arrange
ment to turn these supplies over to j
Poland on credit or on some plan
financed by private bankers will be ,
discussed more thoroughly during the :
next few days.
British Disturbed
By Poland's Crisis
LONDON, July 23 ? By The .-.ssociated
Press i.?The British public is "tlis
turbed by the possibility confronting
it that the Allies may be compelled to
eater another European war to save
Poland. This position was made plain
by Premier Lloyd George's . speech in
the House of Commons Wednesday, :
and all the newspapers are speculating ;
upon it.
Heretofore the impression has benn
that England's part if Poland were
faced with invasion by the Bolsheviki, j
as it now appears to be faced, would ;
bo. limited to furnishing munitions.
Lloyd George's statement that Great
Britain is bound to give every assist
ance in her power to save Poland and j
that he may be compelled "to place the
whole position before Parliament,"
however, is interpreted to mean much
more than that.
Almost all the newspapers support
the Premier, although there is much
recrimination over the policios which
have brought the destinies of Poland
to this pass. The general argument is
that an independent Poland is neces?
sary for the safety of Europe under
present conditions, and that the Allies
cannot afford the risk of letting the
Bolshevik frontiers join those of Ger?
Virtually the only opposition to the
Premier- although it is important op?
position?comes from the Labor party.
That party criticizes the Premier for
advocating strong measures to stop the
war when the Bolshevikii are winning,
arguing that he should have used his ;
power to prevent Poland waging war
against the Bolsheviki.
This new crisis is unpopular, even if,
as appears, it is unescapable, judging
from the tone of the newspapers, main?
ly because it may involve the ex?
penditure of more lives ami because
the country had come, according to
general belief, about to the limit of :
bearable taxation, the chief political
issue recently having been a growing
and organized demand for the reduc?
tion of the government's expenditures. ;
Emphasis is laid on the danger to
the peace of all Europe by most of the
newspapers, and the anti-Bolshevik
papers see in the Soviet army's ad- ;
vanee a determination to destroy Po
hind. nAother fear expressed is that
if the Bolsheviki reach th:- eastern
frontier of Germany victoriously a
Spartaeist or Monarchist rising there
would be inevitable, either of which,
they say, would be equally fatal to the
reconstruction of Europe.

LONDON, July T.I.- Lloyd George
can find little support from the press
for any British military contribution
tc Polan 1. With few exceptions, the
newspapers are inclined to blame the .
Poles for the present situation but are,
nevertheless, agreed that it is neces
sary for the Allies to get them out of
the" mes*. The difference in opinion
comes on the methods to be used.
'?The Globe" says: "We are in no ?
condition to engage in another strug
gle. We have neither the men or ;
money for it and wo are very much
in doubt whether public opinion would j
stand it."
Most newspapers are quick to real
ize that Germany has declared her ;
neutrality between Russia and Poland I
and before troops could be sent across|
Germany it would be necessary to ob
tain her consent. "The Evening Stand?
ard" asks a ?eries of questions and
then say.s: "It is absolutely essential
that the country should be behind tho
government and the country cannot
support the government unless it has a
firm grasp on matter:; at issue."
NorthclifTe's "Evening Ncw3 " de?
clares: "The present trouble is largely
i due to our own vacillating government
in the past." It is non-committal re
: garding the size of Britain's contribu
i tion to Poland. Under the heading,
"Another War to the End," it says:
| "From the debate concerning Poland no
sound reason emerged why we should
go to war with Russia." This paper
condemns Poland on the ground that
it is swollen with military pride.
" The Westminster Gazette " al30
! offers a protest, though in milder
; tones. The provincial newspapers show
no desire to rush into war to aid
Poland, and "The Manchester Guar?
dian" says that Britain must treat the
Soviet government as it would any
other and address its communication;
"solely to the nb'pct <?f securing peace
in Russia and Poland."
James O'Grady, M. P., who is th<
actual dictator of the Labor party's for
eign policy, said to-day: "Labor won't
support war against Russia. Polant
must consider herself beaten and ente:
upon peace negotiations. Any such nev
war would cause a revolution in Franc
and England, for the Soviet governmen
has declared its desire to be at pcac.
with Poland. The British have sent :
strong note to the Polish governmen
urging it to ask for an armistice."

though it was announced the Bolshevik
onslaught on the extreme right and
left wings of the front had been
checked at least temporarily and that
the Poles were fighting determinedly.
At the center of the front the Bol?
sheviks were pounding against the
former Russo-German positions, of
which the Polish forces have taken ad?
vantage at various points in Polesia,
norh and south of Rinsk, with every
indication that the Poles would be able
to hold the line unless additional Rol
sheiks were brought up in overwhelm?
ing numbers,
The^ Poles have counter-attacked in
an effort to retake Grodno, an official
communique says to-day. The Bol?

treme left apparently has been checked,
the statement adds, but to the east, in
the region of Slonim (seventy-two
miles southeast of Grodno); the Reds
have progressed.
Along ahe River Zbrucz the Poles
were holding the Bolshevik offensive,
which was designed to sweep aero.-.; the
Galician frontier and toward the battle
scarred lie-Ids and valleys leading to
Lemberg, one of the neu* republic's
chief towns. It was announced the Bol?
sheviki who forced the Zbrucz north of

small detachment and that, waile they

The Bolshevik offensive on the south?

the bru%cz River, carrying the fighting
into Poland for the first time.
The Bolsheviki have launched re?
peated attacks along the frontier near
Brody, where the railroad leads direct
to Lemberg. Here many of the citizens
have refused to leave the territory and
are taking up arms again, as they did
last. year, when Lemberg was wrested
from the Ukrainians.
American.- returning from the front
say there will be a finish fight before
Lemberg falls.
Bolshevik invasion Held
Issue for League Action
Special Cable to The Tribuna
Copyright, 1320. New York Tribune Inc.
PARIS, July 23.?The French press
is proclaiming that the Bolshevik in?
vasion of Poland amounts to the casus
f?deris provided for in the covenant I
and that all members o* the League
of Nations are bound to do their duty.
This question will be considered by
a special meeting of the Teague which
has been called at San Sebastian.
The French press also emphasizes
Lloyd George's warning of the ?treat
temptation that the Bolshevik advance
offers to Germany of becoming Bol?
shevik. The "Intransgeant" points
out that the Bolshevik "plan of envel?

the one employed by Germany against
Foreign Stocks Affected
By Russo-Polish Situation
Pronounced weakness in most of the
foreign exchanges and a decline in the
stock market yesterday were attributed
to news from Europe regarding the
Russian-Polish situation. The break '
in the exchanges was quite precipitate,
with sterling leading with a fall of
more than 3 cents in the pound to the
lowest level since April.
At the Stock Exchange the so-called
international issues were under special
pressure, moving in sympathy with the
London market trend, where, according
to private cables received in the finan?
cial district, there was much selling of
investment securities. In this market
Royal Dutch, Shell Transport and Trail?
ing and Canadian Pacific, which are
traded in on both sides of the water,
displayed special weakness.

who have been driven from work by
the present outbreaks has become
serious. Their families will soon be
I going hungry unless quiet is entirely
: restored within a few days and the
' breadwinner:-, allowed to go back to
; work.
It is feared the trouble may spread
to outside districts, in many of which
the anti-Sinn Fein feeling is running
high. There were evidences of such
outbreaks in nearby towns. In one
place Nationalists attempting to work
were beaten and one man was badly
; injured when thrown into a dry dock.
; At the little village of Leap, near
Skibberern, a serious disturbance broke
1 out between the police and civilian* at
; the town hall. The building was
| bombed and destroyed.
At a meeting of magistrates in Bel?
fast to-day it. was decided to form
, a civilian guard to assist the military
| to maintain order.
Prisoners Sert to England
BELFAST, July 2:; (By The Asso?
ciated Press).?Sixteen Sinn Feiners
arrested here Sunday were removed
; last night to England. Thirty or forty
prisoners remanded on looting charges
are still in jail lure. It is expected
: that this number will be largely in
, creased.
The following announcement, which
| is regarded as significant, was issued
j from Lister headquaters in the old
i Town Hal! here to-day:
"Lieutenant Colonel Spender, D. S.
O., who formerly ?.vas connected with
the Lister Volunteer force as chief
. staff officer, has assumed-the command
! of that body. All loyalists should re
' port to their respective battalions."
There were renewed outbreaks last
I night at Banbridge, about twenty-one
, miles southwest of Belfast, where
? Unionists who were parading were
j suddenly fired on near a furnishing
: store. A youth named Sterritt, fifteen
years old, was killed and four others
Many Shots Fired
So many shots were fired the belief
was raised that there was a nest of
Sinn F?iners in the building and when
a detachment of troops from Newry
approached with fixed bayonets they
? also were fired upon. The troops re
! turned the tire, forced an entry into
; the store and arrested two of its
, occupants.
About 2 o'clock this morning Caltra,
near Ballinasloe, was visited by police
and military, who wrecked many
| houses in town, including the Sinn
F?in hall, which was burned to cries
of "Up Tuam," according to a message
from The Press Association's corre?
spondent in Ballinasloe to-day. There
was much shooting, but no loss of life
is reported.
The slogan, "Up Tuam," evidently
refers to Sunday night's incident when
Tuam was sacked, the sacking being
charged against the police as a re?
prisal for the murder of two constables
by a mob.
LONDON, July 23. A dispatch to
the (entrai News from Belfast says
that in the rioting on the Newtonards
Road to-night the police clubbed the
crowd and the soldiers fired four vol?
leys. It adds that a number of persons
wore injured.
The clash followed an attempt by a
mob to spt fire to a convent. Inter?
mittent firing continued in the neigh?
borhood when the dispatch was filed.

Mr. Lloyd George declared the gov?

"The attempt to form a republic in

united determination of all parties and

methods and reserve their natural right

"There never was a time when the
Irish executive, the British. Cabinet and
the House of Commons were more de?

question, and we are ready to welcome

Says British Are Beaten
Sir Hamar said he would have to ask
the House to pass certain legislative
measures to meet the situation, among
them one to create a tribunal supersed

I function during the recent assizes, and
another empowering the Lord Lieuten

deal quickly with all criminal offences
; committed in Ireland.
"Pending these measures," the Sec

! Sinn F?in court or any transfer of
! title under such decision is illegal and
? will be upset as soon as possible."
Sir Edward Carson, the Ulster Union
