DUNRAVEN ON DEFENDER
His Lordship Thinks Extra Bal
last Was Used
FOR SPEEDING THE YACHT
But Becoming Somewhat Tangled on Cross
Examination, Didn't Know Exactly
What He Thought.
New York, Dec. 27.—The investigation
committee appointed by the New York
Yacht club commenced their inquiry into
the charges of foul play made by the
Earl of Dunraven against the owner of
the Defender in the model room of the
New York YacflPt club at 10:15 a. m. to
day. Two members of the committee
were the ftrst to appear—George L. Riv
ers and E. J. Phelps, ex-minister to the
court of St. James. They were followed
by C. Oliver Iselin, the managing owner
of the Defender; Woodbury Kane, Lath
am A. Fish, S. Nicholson Kane, J. Pier
pnnt Morgan, chairman of the investigat
ing committee; Capt. A. T. Mahan, U. S.
N.; Joseph H. Choate, who will look after
the interests of the Defender syndicate;
E. D. Morgan, W. Butler Duncan, Her
bert C. Leeds of Boston, A. Cass Canfield,
secretary of the America's cup commit
tee,, and Captains Hank Haff and Terry of
the Defender-. The two quartermasters
of the Defender, John Staples a id Irv
ing Barbour, were the only members of
her crew to attend in the morning. Lord!
Dunraven came at 10 o’clock sharp. He
was accompanied by George Asliwith, his
lawyer; Arthur Glennie, rear commodore
of the Royal Portsmouth Yacht club, and
his servant, who carried a big package of
papers.
"hr Hon. William G. Whitney of the
investigating committee drove up in a
carriage immediately after Lord Dun
raven’s arrival, and as he was the only
member needed to complete the arrange
ments the session commenced.
The utmost secrecy was used in con
ducting the investigation. No newspa-^
per reporters were permitted to remain
on the ground floor and members of the
club were not allowed to go upstairs.
The model room of the club, in which
the session is being held, Is arranged in
court fashion. A large table covered with
red cloth is at the head of the*room, and
here the live members of the investigat
ing committee sat. To the right of this
tabye is a chair reserved for witnesses.
A long table for the lawyers and their as
sistants, and three smaller tables with
chairs and other seats along the hall,
complete the ensemble.
The proceedings opened at 10:15 a. m.
J. Pierpont Morgan took the chair and
Mr. Askwith commenced his opening ad
dress.
The utmost care was taken to prevent
any intrusion of strangers. Newspaper
representatives were not permitted to re
main on the ground floor and even ahe
members of the club were excluded from
the second floor. Notwithstanding the
precaution taken to insure secrecy, how
ever, a very clear idea of what trans
pired “in camera" was prevalent down
stairs and the members were gleefully
discussing the manner in which "Choate
handled Dunraven” Neither Captain
Haff nor any of the Defender’s crew were
called up stairs today, but they will be
examined tomorrow when the hearing of
the Defender’s side of the case Is re
sumed.
The witnesses who were to testify re
mained in the smoking room on the
ground floor of the club house, and went
to the room where the investigation was
being held, one at a time, as they were
called.
Mr. Askwith opened the proceedings by
presenting Lord Dunraven’s case. He
stated that no charge was made against
any individual member of the Defender
syndicate. Lord Dunraven did not claim
that Mr. Iseltn or any of the gentlemen
having general charge of the boat were
guilty of Improper methods, but from his
own observations and from what he had
learned from others he was convinced
that the lead water line of the American
boat had been increased after she had
been officially measured, just prior to
the first race. This he believed was done
by surreptitiously adding to her ballast
so as to< sink her four inches deeper In
the wate'r than when she was measured
for t he determination of her racing
length.
of the two yachts the night of Friday,
September C, preceding the first race.
Mr. Askwith finished his presentation
of the ease at 12:45 p. m. While he was
talking Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan, the
chairman, was called down town on Im
portant business, and Ex-Minister E. J.
Phelps took his place.
Lord Dunraven was the first witness.
He had only begun his testimony when a
recess for lunch was taken.
After recess Lord Dunraven continued
his testimony. He told in detail the.
movements of the yachts before and after
the first race. His counsel led him on
from point to point until he had stated
all that he knew of his own personal
knowledge about the alleged change in
the water line.
Lawyer Choate objected to any hear
say evidence being introduced, and the
proceedings were kept within legal lines.
When Mr. Askwith finished with his cli
ent Mr.Choate ttg>k his lordship in hand
and put him through a rigid cross-exami
nation. The Irish earl had a very uncom
fortable time of it for over an hour.
Mr. Glennie was the second witness.
He went over much of the same ground
as Lord Dunraven, and was also cross
examined by Mr. Choate. When this was
finished Mr. Askwith presented deposi
tions made by Captains Cranfield and
Sycamore and members of the Valkyrie
crew.
After these had been made Mr. Ask
with announced that Lord Dunraven’s
case was closed.
Mr.Choate then called Nat Herreshoff
as the first witness for the defense. Mr.
Herresshoff, who built the Defender,
stated that between thirteen and four
teen tons of lead would be required* to
sink her I inches after she had been
measured. He said that It was not pos
sible to add that quantity of lead1 to the
yacht’s ballast and remove it without
being seen by many persons. He had not
finished his testimony when the commit
tee adjourned the hearing till 10 a. m. to
morrow.
The hearing will In ali probability be
brought to a close tomorrow and a report
will be made to the club by the commit
tee. Arrangements will be also bo made
for making the proceedings public, and
until this is done it is impossible to sav
what prospects Lord Dunraven has of
substantiating his charges.

SECRETARY CARLISLE TALKS
Does Not Believe the Tariff Measure Sufficierjt
to Meet the Present Demand—Its
Various Features.
Washington, Dec. 27.—Secretary Car
lisle this evening gave to a reporter hip
views of the tariff measure now pending
before congress.
"What in your opinion will be the effect
upon the financial situation of the tariff
bill passed by the house of representa
tives yesterday?” Mr. Carlisle was
asked.
“I had supposed that very few could
now-he found who believe that our finan
cial difficulties were caused by a defi
ciency in the ordinary revenues of the
government, or that they can be relieved
by increasing taxes upon the commodities
consumed by the people. These diffi
culties are the necessary rsults of our
financial Igislation, and they cannot be
removed, even temporally, by tariff laws
or by any other measures which do not
directly enable the government to pro
cure the means necessary for the main
tenance of gold payments.
"Do you think then that the bond bill
reported In the house today will furnish
any relief to the treasury?”
“I am satisfied that there is but one
permanent remedy for any financial em
barrassments, and that is legislation pro
viding for the retirement and cancella
tion of the legal tender notes; but, rec
ognizing the fact that such a measure
would require time for its consideration,
and for its complete execution if adopted,
I had hoped that congress would imme
diately take the necessary steps to assist
the government in its efforts to procure
and maintain such a gold reserve as may
be required to remove the distrust and
apprehensions which have precipitated
the present emergency. The bill re
ported by the committee on ways and
means falls very far short of the require
ments of the situation, and its passage
will not beneficially affect the situation
with which wo now have to deal. Our
difficulties were produced, and have been
prolonged and aggravated by the fear
that, notwithstanding all the efforts of
tire administration, wo may ultimately
be unable to procure gold for the purpose
be forced to a silver basis, and this fear
cannot be wholly removed until some ac
tion is taken by congress clearly indi
cating a purpose to pay all our obliga
tions in gold when demanded by the
holders.
II 4 III__ __l_ In nn cuVietanf i'll ro a -
son to distrust the character of our notes
or other securities, or to douibt the pur
pose of the government to maintain gold
payments, the fact that there has been
no legislative declaration upon the sub
ject, and no legal authority exists to
make them expressly payable In gold, not
only prevents the sale of our bonds for
the replenishment of the reserve upon the
most advantageous terms, but Increases
the demand for gold by the presentation
of notes at the very time when we are
least able to meet them without Injury to
our credit. If it was not generally ex
pected that the three classes of bonds
already authorized by law will be paid
In gold at maturity, If demanded, they
will not be sold except at.a sacrifice; but
even this general Impression Is not suffi
cient to altogether satisfy investors, es
pecially in times of financial disturbance.
“About $16,001),000 in interest could
have been saved to the people on the
last Issue of bonds If congress had con
sented to make them expressly payable
in gold instead of coin. This condition
is not at all approved by the pending
bill, which still requires all bonds to be
payable 'in coin' as heretofore, and con
fers no new authority except the powe^
to Issue and sell 3 per cent bonds, also
payable in coin after five years, with in)
terest payable in coin semi-annually. At
the present rate our thirty-year 4 per cent
bonds with interest payable quarterly
are selling in the markets at rates which
yield investors more than 3 per cent per
annum and this fact should not be over
looked in determining whether or not a
five year 3 per cent coin bond could now
be sold at par, as the pending bill re
quires.”
“What will be the effect of the provis
ion prohibiting the sale of bonds except
after public advertisement?”
"Assuming that a sufficient amount of
gold could be procured in that way, any
secretary of the treasury would prefer
to advertise for bids; but it is evident that
there may be circumstances when prompt
action is required in order to preserve
the credit of the government, and in such
a case peremptory provision requiring a
public advertisement might defeat the
object of the law and prevent any sale."
Speaking of the second seetioi*. of the
bill, which authorizes the Issue of cer
tificates to meet deficiencies In the reve
nue, Secretary Carlisle said:
"While there is no necessity at the pres
ent time for resorting to the exercise of
the power which that section confers,
and may not be in the future, the secre
tary of the treasury ought always to have
the authority to issue and sell or use in
the payment of expenses, short time cer
tificates or bonds, of the character de
scribed In the bill. Such authority ought
to have been conferred upon him long
ago. and it ought to he made permanet
instead of being limited to $5n,000,0ftn as It
is by the hill. Except as to this limita
tion the second section of the bill is a
good one.”

THINGS DRAMATIC.
Alexander Salvinl played "Hamlet" to
a large and fashionable audience at
O'Brien's opera house last night. It was
the first time this talented actor had been
seen in tragedy here, and there were not
a few who feared he would not come up
to expectations, as the unfortunate Dane.
They had seen him in the “Three Guards
men," and recognized in him the very
best d’Artagnan on the stage at the pres
ent day, but as Hamlet they had their
misgivings.
Mr. Salvinl may not be the ideal Ham
let, as pictured by some, yet in that diffi
cult role his wonderful talent and versa
tility show to good advantage. There
are scenes in which he rises far above
the average actor who essays that char
acter, while there are others in which
he falls below what might reasonably be
expected of an artist of Mr. Salvini’s
known ability.
In the sword contest he surpasses any
thing seen here this season, and perhaps
in several seasons. He is a capital fencer,
and his exhibition of that art is splendid.
All in all, Mr. Salvini’s conception and
interpretation of Shakespeare's great
play compare favorably with that of
any other person playing the part, and he
will no doubt gratify his ambition in the
tragedy line.
His company is composed of good ma
terial, and they gave him splendid sup
port.
Tonight Mr. Salvinl and his company
will present the “Three Guardsmen" at
O'Brien's.
D’Artagnan is considered Mr. Salvinl's
strongest character, and on his appear
ance here last season as such he gave
perfect satisfaction.
Minnie Maddern Fisk.
There are without doubt many theater
patrons in this city who remember with
lively interest the work of Minnie Mad
dern Fiske as an actress before she re
tired temporarily from the stage some
five years ago. She was then regarded as
a genius, although she had never been
seen in a play worthy of her unique per
sonality. Her reappearance this season,
with her art developed and her dramatic
ability so pronounced as to lead to her
designation as the most moving emo
tional actress In America, is a matter for
congratulation. Mrs. Fiske has a new
play, by Alphonse Daudet and Leon
Hennique. adapted by Harrison Grey
Fiske, which offers her the greatest dra
matic opportunity, and she will be seen
In this, as well as In Ibsen’s “A Doll’s
House," in which she is said to be great
as Nora, during her engagement in this
city. Mrs. Fiske went upon the stage at
the age of 3 years. Before her fourteenth
year she had acted the round of juvenile
parts with the prominent players of the
period. Long before she wore long
dresses off the stage she assumed them In
the theater. When but 12 years of ageij
she played Francois in "Richelieu" and
Louise in "The Two Orphans." When 13
she assumed the part of the Widow Mel
note with astonishing success. Mrs.
Fiske’s occasional appearances for charity
in New York since her retirement in
plays that had tested great genius in
others, illustrated her marvelous artistic
expansion, and her return to the stage
In plays that fit her unique talents per
fectly is an event that all of those in this
city who admired her before will be quick
to appreciate. Mrs. Fiske was born in
New Orleans. Her father was the well
known southern manager. Thomas
Davey, and her mother was Lizzie Mad
dern, of the noted Maddern family of
musicians. Monday and Tuesday even
ings, December 30 and 31, are the dateB
Mrs. Fiske will appear In this city at
O'Brien’s opera house.

The announcement of the coming of
that charming entertainer. Charles A
ENTS.
tio Novelties and
inntioii of our sto
BRIC-A-BRAC
Gardner, will doubtless suffice to call to
out theater goers pleasant recollections.
To have heard Mr. Gardner render In his
inimitable manner his tuneful songs and
to have sat within the spell of that de
lightful personality which permeates all
his characterizations Is not easily forgot
ten. Mr. Gardner will be seen at
O'Brien's next week in a new play, enti
tled. “The Prize Winner." It has gained
the hearty approbation of both the thea
ter goers and the press, and it is said to
be the best piece he has ever presented
to the public. It Is a portraiture of home
life In the Austrian Tyrol. The play Is
superbly mounted with due deference to
exact reproductions of the scenes and the
picturesque dresses of the country. Aside
from the customary several charming
songs Mr. Gardner will sing his now fa
mous “Apple Blossoms,” which has
proven a worthy substitute for the fa
mous "Lilacs.”
A MISFIT.
Two-Thirds of the Officers’ New Suits Will
Have to Be Remodeled.
Birmingham’s police force smiled too
early over their new suits. JVhen they
began trying them on for a Christmas
stroll over two-thirds of the suits proved
“misfits.” The suits were made in Kal
amazoo, Mich., and the agent of the firm
from whom they were bought is here try
ing to remedy the clothing and rub the
wrinkles from the brows of the Birming
ham officials.
Moral: If you want neat fitting clothes,
patronize home tailors.
