The Ailsa, although not regularly : entered, was invited to sail against the Orion and the representative of the Ailsa's owner did so. The Ailsa crossed the' line too soon, had to come back .and did something frequent enough in America, but which gave the judges a scare. She made a turn around the starter's boat almost touching her spars and came up to windward. In the meantime the Orion1 was going) away fast. The Ailsa at the first turn was 2 minutes behind; at the second turn was about even and at the third turn was 50 seconds ahead-' She fin ished one minute and ten seconds ahead of the Orion.

But others re garded the Meteor III.'s performance to-day as rather better than her previ ous work.

ARMISTICE IN IEE WAR NOT YET DECIDED UPON JAPANESE MINISTER HAS LONG CONFERENCE WITH PRESI DENT ROOSEVELT.'

Washington, June 23 Mr. Takahlra, the Japanese minister, returned -ts ' Washington this afternoon from a visit of several days in New- England and called at the White house to-night, : where he was received by the president and remained for three-quarters of an hour. The minister would have noth ing to say about his conference or the situation at this time, beyond remark ing that "some matters must be, set tled first," when asked about an armls ice. The ffict that th'e minister could give no assurances regarding an armis tice 'prior to the convening of the Washington conference tends to con firm the belief in official circles here that little headway has yet been made by the president in this dlreotton. Up to a late hour this afternoon the Rus sian reply to the president's suggestion regarding an armistice had not been received arid until this reply is receiv ed the result of this phase of the nego tiations cannot be known. In view of the fact that the president has thus far addressed himself simultaneously to both belligerent powers, there is' a dis position to believe that Mr. Takahlra may have brought to the White house to-night an . expression ' of " Japan's views upon an armlstloe, in response to the president's well known hope that clash would not precede the confer ence..
