Explaining Why He Withdrew
His Challenge,
He Would Like to Express His Opinion on the
Subject—Mr. Rose Regrets That He
Was Compelled to Withdraw.
New York, Nov. 8.—Commodore James
P. Smith, chairman of the America's cup
committee, this morning made public
Charles D. Rose's letter explaining why
he withdrew his challenge to race in 1896,
and cancelled the order for the Distant
Chairman Smith declined to make any
comments upon the letter. The commo
dore Is a sportsman to the backbone. He
“The letter speaks for itself. As chair
man of the cup committee anything com
ing from me would be in bad taste.”
The letter in full reads as follows:
James D. Smith, 42 Broad Street, New York:
Dear Sir: 1 have the honor to ac
knowledge the receipt of your favors of
October 15 and 16, the former advising
me of the appointment of a committee of
gentlemen to arrange the conditions of a
»natch for the America's cup of 1S9G, and
the latter enclosing a copy of a letter
sent to the secretary of the Royal Vic
toria Y'acht club, embodying the condi
tions formulated.
Since your letters were Written you
will have received intimation that, to
my regret, I have decided to withdraw
my challenge.
I have been influenced in coming to
this decision entirely through the motives
that have been attributed to my action
In making the challenge.
Although it is, perhaps, unnecessary to
send you a formal contradiction of many
statements that have been made. I
should be glad If you would kindly as
sure your committee that when I de
cided on sending the challenge it was
done entirely in the Interest of sport
generally, and with the desire to win
back the America’s cup, and at (lie same
time it never occurred to me for one
moment that my action would be con
strued by the public Into a positive ex
pression of opinion on the result of the
last series of races. As. however, the
press generally and a certain section of
the public thought fit to impute to me
other motives, and such as might tend
to weaken the good feeling that has
hitherto existed between the sporting
community of the two countries. I trust
that your committee will recognize that
1 have taken the only course that Is
possible and exonerate me from any In
tention of treating the acceptance of my
challenge in any other way than with
the consideration It Is entitled to.
1 beg to thank you personally and your
c immlttee for the courteous manner in
which they have dealt with my chal
lenge, and only regret that I have found
It impossible to proceed further In the
matter. I remain yours faithfully.

Ho Makes Gross Insinuations AgaiiiBt the
Defender Syndicate.
London. Nov. 8.—The Field will tomor
row publish a four-column statement
from Lord Dunraven relative to the con
test for the America’s cup. Lord Dun
raven opens by saying that as so much
lias been written and said loosely con
cerning the races, and as he has received
so many requests for fuller information,
lie thinks it due to the yachting and gen
eral public and himself that he make a
statement. He would, he adds, coniine
himself to the cause of his withdrawal
of the Valkyrie from the race, namely
over crowding, but that other matters
had been mentioned i(j the cup commit
tee’s report to the New York Yacht club.
He relates what occurredat the meet
ing of the committee held for settling
the conditions of the contest .and says he
disapproved of the method of making
the load water line with copper tacks on
deck Instead of the yacht racing associa
tions’ method of visible marks onstemand
stern, but he m$de no protest. A few
days later he wrote to Mr. Canfield In
regard to this matter and received a ver
bal answer that the committee did not
see the object of reconsidering the ma,t
tr. Lord Dunraven did not press the
matter but signed the agreement. The
following day the first race was sailed.
Continuing, he says: "I am of the opin
ion that the Defender did not sail on her
measured load water line length In the
Those on hoard the Valkyrie were able
to observe the Defender when they were
alongside of her in the Erie basin. After
her first trial with the Vigilant, when tiie
Defender went to the Erie basin to be
measured on September C>. it was obvious
to everybody on board the City of Bridge
port, the Valkyrie's tender, that she was
tiuating materially higher than on a
former occasion. This, of course, was
The Hattie Palmer, the -Defender’s
tender, was alongside the Defender all
night. Her crew were at work from
dark until the morning. Early Sunday
aboard the Clyde at Bridgeport he no
ticed that the Defender was visibly deep
er In the water than when she was meas
ured When he put Mr. Henderson
aboard at 9 o'clock Lord Dunravpn was
perfectly certain that she was 4 inches
deeper than she was when she was meas
ured. He was reluctant to formally com
plain, as it was impossible for him to
verify his belief. Anyhow, nothing could
have been done before the race, but when
Mr. Fish went on board the Valkyrie
Lord Dunraven told him the whole case,
and asserted his belief that the Defender
was sailing fully a foot beyond her prop
er length. He asked Mr. Fish to induce
the committee to send a member aboard
of each boat immediately after the race
and have both measured forthwith, and
if that was Impossible to have the mem
ber stay in charge until the yachts were
measured. He also asked that the load
water line be marked visibly externally.
No action was taken that evening be
yond ordering that the boats be remeas
ured and marked on the following day.
Nobody was placed In charge. The De
fender lay all night with the Hattie
Palmer alongside of her. The result was
that Sunday's remeasuring obviously af
forded no proof that either of the yachts
had not exceeded their measured length
since Tuesday's race. Lord Dunraven
then says: "My action in making this
complaint has been severely criticised. I
will only say that I considered It my
duty. I did not ask anything that I was
not ready and willing to submit to my
He then proceeds to discuss the crowd
ing at the starting- line, which was ren
dered so dangerous that it was impos
sible to maneuver properly or safely.
Sails were constantly passing in front of
the mark boat? making it Impossible to
pick up the line accurately. When the
Valkyrie came near the line the. mark
boat was completely hidden from view.
Not knowing where the line was and fear
ing that she might be too soon the Val
kyrie bore away and thus spoiled her
start. He gives details of the steamer’s
washing and blanketing the racers on the
reach home. The Defender, he says, wras
Interfered with, but nothing like to the
same extent as was the Valkyrie. Lord
Dunraven gives a similar account of the
start in the second race and mentions the
foul without remark. He says that on the
reach to the second mark home the steam
ers Interfered with the Valkyrie to an
extent that was unprecedented on this
occasion or in 1893. A number of vessels
were to windward and a long, closely
packed line was steaming at high speed
to the leeward of the Valkyrie. The Val
kyrie sailed the whole way in the boil of
the wash from these vessels and was
blanketed on both sides. It was difficult
to steer and the racing was reduced to
an absolute farce. Lord Dunraven de
clares that he makes no accusation of
partiality, but only says that whereas
the yacht which was astern on the first
day got much the worse wash, the yacht
in front got the worse the second day.
The result of a race impeded by 2f>0
steamers was a mere matter of chance.
He then says: "I made up my mind that
it was perfectly useless to sail under such
conditions. What course I should have
taken had I been merely personally in
terested I do not know, but as represent
ing a British club In an international
race I had no hesitation in declining to
sail under such conditions, precluding
the possibility of a fair trial of the mer
its of the vessels. I had gone out to the
race not to take part in a show. It has
been stated that my decision was Influ
enced by the fact that the Valkyrie had
been protested against. This ' Is un
true. I was not aware of the protest un
til the Valkyrie had been taken up to
Bayridge hours afterwards.”
His declining to accede to Mr. Iselln’s
proposal to resail the race, he says was
much commented upon. It was quite
impossible to do so. The protest was
made and it was not withdrawn The
proper authority investigated It and gave
a decision. He could not resail the race
at the personal request of Mr. Tselin af
ter the committee had given Its verdict
against the Valkyrie.
After giving further details in connec
tion with the foul, Lord Dunraven pro
ceeds to state that owing to the ambig
uity of the wording of Mr. Iselln’s letter
to Mr. Smith of September 16. the refusal
to resall this race led to the erroneous
supposition that he (Lord Dunraven) had
declined to resail the series. He believes
that Mr. Iselin made appeals to the New
York Yacht club to sail the series on any
conditions agreeable to Dunraven, but
that the proposal was never communica
ted to him. He would have been more
than glad to have availed himself of it
with a reasonable clear course assured.
He refers to the Valkyrie crossing the
line In the last race und then with .raw
ing. Lord Dunraven somewhat lengthily
summarizes his own case and disavows
any Intention of being discourteous or to
inconvenience the owners of the Defen
der, the committee or the public. The in
convenience caused he regrets, but he
says he cannot hold himself to blame.
In discussing the methods of the res
pective yachts Lord Dunraven declares
that in the first race the Valkyrie had a
bad start and lost the weather, but sailed
remarkably well.
As regards the second day’s race, Lord
Dunraven does not think the fact that
the Defender did not carry her jib topsail
when going to windward made any dif
ference. On the whole Lord Dunraven
believes that the Defender Is the better
boat on a reach and that the Valkyrie
Is better than the Defender in turning
to windward and in running.

Johnson’s Phenomenal Time.
Louisville. Nov. 7.—It was the verdict
of the spectators present and League
of American Wheelmen officials in charge
today that Johnnie Johnson's work at
Fountain Ferry stamps him as a marvel
among riders. He made a tiial against
the standing start, paced, one mile
world's record, held hy the class B man,
Otto Zeigler, and though he rode over
one-third of a mile unpaced, he tied the
record of 1:7.0 2-5. Not satisfied with this,
he tried it again within twenty minutes,
and notwithstanding a most miserable
pickup liy the second squad, which car
ried him outside to the top of the bank,
he lowered the record to 1:501-5. Frac
tionals, half 57 2-5, two-thirds 1:15 3-5.

The New Cabinet Criticised.
London, Nov. 8.—The Times tomorrow
will publish a dispatch from Constanti
nople saying that the order dismissing
Kiamll Pasha from the post of grand
vizier was offensively worded, in order to
disguise the fact that he refused to re
main in office to close the insincerity of
this sovereign in regarding the reforms in
Armenia, Pointing Kiamll Pasha as vail
of Aleppo is sending him into exile.
The Times’ correspondent criticises the
new ministers. He says that the grand
vizier is the least objectionable member
of the cabinet. His intentions are honest
but his capabilities are small. All Eu
rope knows Tewflk Pasha Is a nonentity.
The ministers of Justice and of the in
terior are fanatics. The new ministry
is strongly reactionary find a negation
of all that was implied by the adoption
of the reform scheme.

Rais** the flag on e’ry school house
Let It float upon the breeze,
Tell the children of its triumphs
On the land and on 4he seas.
Many thousand noble freemen
Gave their lives to prove its worth;
The only flag that despots fear—
Freedom's hope through all the earth.
It knows no sect, no race, no dan,
Schemes and plots it doth defy.
To freedom’s storm tossed struggling ship
It is a rainbow* in the sky.
Raise it high mid spire and steeple,
I vet it glisiten in the sun,
It has no spot of shame to hide
In all its victories won.
Toll the children that its symbol
Is a state for every star.
Tel 1Nthem Its victorious record
In days of peace a.nd cruel war.
Tell them it is theirs to cherish.
That its stars must never set.
And in future they’ll defend it
If need be with the bayonet.
Keep the flag on e’ry school house,
With your ballots It defend.
Learning and freedom firmly join,
Then our union ne’er shall end.
Le<t cheers arise unto the skies,
Like greater Niagara’s roar,
From the mountains of New England
To Pacaflc’s golden shore.
Raise the flag on ev’ry school house,
Let it float upon the breeze,
Sing aloud “The Spangled Banner"
As it rises o’er the trees.
Tell the children all its story,
On the land and on. the se«a,
That its pet names are “Old Glory"
And “The Banner of the Free."
That its red should e’er remind us
Of the blood by Martyrs shod,
That we might live in freedom’s land
After they wore with the dead.
That its white our faith should strengthen
That, the people's cause is just.
And no monarch e’er shall rule us
But the God in whom we trust.
That its blue for truth eternal,
Like the azure sky above,
E’er should keep us true and loyal
And our nation’s honor love.
Its stars shall lighten all the world
And must prove <to all who see
That the people can be trusted
With, the bonn of liberty.
Its stripes mean justice sure to fall
Upon all assailing foes.
It waves proudly and defiant
Against all who oppose.
Float freedom’s flag in freedom’s breeze—
Starry banner that we love—
From ithe prairies to the seaboard,
Northern, lake to orange grove.
A gift irain heaven—our Joy and stay.
She grew In beauty ilay by day.
And oft we sought with all things fair
Ifer gentle presence to compare;
And loved her more as time revealed
The worth her modesty concealed;
So thoughtful, true and undeliled—
from maid'to matron, still our shtld.
So like the passing of a dream
Was her sweet life, she’ll ever seem
Unchanged—a child upon my knee,
With loving arms embracing me;
A morning star, whose lingering ray
Made beautiful the dawn of day,
Then melted into Hght away.

Position of Populists.
Augusta Chronicle.
According to the figures, the republi
can candidate for congress In the Eigh
teenth Illinois district, where free coinage
was a leading Issue, owes his handsome
plurality to the populist candidate, who,
though in favor of free coinage, did not
love the democracy. Taking the free sil
ver democratic and populist vote in. com
bination, the fight, numerically, was an
even division of numerical strength. The
populist did not stand a ghost of a chance
to win, but he contributed with his fol
lowing, tb elect decisively a gold standard
republican. This is pretty much the
case everywhere, especially at tlfe south.
The only hope, for instance, the gold
standard men In Georgia have of par
tial success, comes from the hope that
the populist free silver defection, will
leave fn»e silver democrats easier to deal
with In the convention or, by some re
mote contingency ini the legislature,
when the senatorial election shall have
come up for solution. If the free coinage
men of the south were united, there
would be, In Georgia and other southern
states, no doubt all of the Issue. If there
is any doubt at all, or any encouragement
for the goldite democracy, tlie populists
create the uncertainty or furnish the
hatie. _
New York Evening Post.
The result of the election in Utah yes
terday adds a new state to the union,
and will increase the senate to a body of
ninety members, while the next electoral
college will have 447 votes, making 224
necessary to a majority. Both Inside
and outside of the territory there has
been considerable doubt among the op
ponents of polygamy as to the safety of
giving the sovereignty of a state to a
community in which the influence of the
Mormon church seems still very strong;
but the constitution which was ratified
by the voters yesterday contains the
most solemn prohibition of plural mar
riages, and the general feeling has been
that this institution cannot stand up
against the swelling tide of Gentile In
fluence. The constitution gives women
the right to vote on equal terms with
men, and establishes the novelty In Judi
cial methods of a Jury of eight members,
Instead of the traditional twelve. The
republicans seem likely to elect the
United States senators, but whether re
publican nr democratic, they will be “red
hot” for free coinage.
A Church Pair.
The New Haven Register is in a frame
of mind. Hear it recount its troubles:
“The out of town readers of the Regis
ter must have been surprised last even
ing to find 3 inches of blank space under
the headline ‘Cleared $2000.’ The reason
for the unsightly appearance of this
newspaper was that the publication In
question was said to violate the United
States postal regulations, and that un
less the objectionable matter was elim
inated the postal business of this great
country’ would become contaminated.
The objectionable item which led to the
exclusion of the Register from the mails
was a nows account of the allotment of
prizes at the St. John’s church fair, which
has been in session at Warner hall for
'the past two weeks. It gave a list of the
prizes and the names of the lucky win
ners. This, we believe, is the first time
in our local history that the games of
chance that are a feature of all church
fairs are accepted as constituting a vio
lation of law. Technically we suppose
It is a violation, but to construe it so lit
erally that a reputable and responsible
newspaper should be held up before the
community a» a deliberate violator of
law is obviously—and we say It without
intentional disrespect—ridiculous."
