Mill in ruck II to Race In These Wn

I nilt r the Irish KnlKlits Colors
NEW YORK Oct 21 -Sir Thomas Lip
ton will have a new challenger for the
Americas cup and another race will be
arranged to bo sailed in August 1M3
These are the Irish Knight s present plans
and he will start nt once to work them
Sir Thomas will sail for England tomor
row on the White Star liner Celtic and
with him will bo his secretaries John
Westwood and William Duncan Sir
Thomas decided to sail on this vessel
rather suddenly and has had to cancel
many of his engagements but he has
been away from home for a long time
and his business is such that ho must
give It some attention at once
Talking to a reporter at the Waldorf
Astoria today Sir Thomas gave some idea
of his plans He said
I am more than ever determined to
win the Americas cup if such a thing
Is possible and after the last series of
races between the Columbia and the
Shamrock II I think that the Shamrock
II Is a faster boat than the Columbia un
der certain conditions and I think that
my juclit can be Improved Before Mr
Watson went away some slight altera
tions to the yacht were discussed and it
was agreed by all that Shamrock could
be Improved
Now I have not yet decided whether
these changes will be made before next
season The Shamrock is to winter here
because I want to race her here next sea
son Here she can meet such boats as
the Columbia and Constitution on even
terms and I think we might have a fine
seasons sport If these three achts were
to race together In these waters It has
been reported that my acht Is for sale
That Is not so She is left here to race
and for use when wanted to help win the
I had thought of challenging again
with the Shamrock II and made a sug
gestion to the New York Yacht Club re
cently to allow- tho Shamrock to sail for
the cup again next ear but this is not
allowed according to the deed of gift
Then It was said the Shamrock would
remain here until lsB and race again In
that ear hut that might be only waste
of time
When I get home I am going to consult
with Messrs Watson and Fife about J
plans for a new yacht Platmlng and
building a yacht of the dimensions of a j
cup challenger cannot be aone in a lew
minutes and a race for next season is I
think out of the range of possibility but
it can be done for the ear after next and
I think that August is the best time of
year to have the race
If I can get a boat built Jn time my
idea Is to have her sailed against Sham
rock 1 at home and then send her across
the ocean and finish her tuning up against
Shamrock II which will be in these wa
ters I cannot say who will build the new
yacht or even who vill design It That Is
all to he decided when I nt home and I
shall start In at once and find out exactly
vv hat can he done Captain Sv 1 amore w ill
have charge of the j aphtand If I can get
any racing here next season he will sail
the Shamrock I sinctrely hope thaOhe
owners of the Constitution and Columbia
will have their yachts in commission
My sta in this ceiuutry has been an
extremely pUas vit one nnd I am sorry
to go away Of course it was a big dis
appointment not to be able to win the
cup but we hope for better luck next

part of wisdom in Democrats to say noth

Mr Watterson contends that every

that Mr Roosevelt is only shown to be
true to hts political religion and cites
that the foundation of that political be
lief wns to free the negro to seat him in
the high places of the land and that for
a great moral lesson It kept the scat of
Jefferson Davis vacant until It could be

For the first time since the Court of
Enquiry began Its hearins there was
yesterday an attempt made to applaud an
utterance made in open court
Mr Raner had just concludtd a brief
but somewhat spirited and forceful argu
ment when an enthusiastic feminine ad
mirer of Admiral Schley In the exuber
ance of her Joy clapped her gloved hands
together and the noise attracted the at
tention of everyone in the court room
The Court looked stern and tho other
spectators did not Join in the attempted
The proceedings throughout jie day
were moro prolix and less Interesting
than they have been at any time since
the enquiry began more than four weeks
ago The crowd was notwithstanding
one of the largest ever in attendance and
strange to sy a big majorlt of the
spectators remained the entire day listen
ing to long drawn cut testimony and a
tedious cross examination which devel
oped almost nothing of interest and very
little of Importance
No new witnesses were sworn jester-
day Lieut B W Wells jr flag secre
tary to Commodore Schley was upon the
stand during the greater portion of the
day He was testifying when the ad
journment was taken last Friday The
Court had not concluded with him when
the hour of t oclock arrived yesterday
and he will be upon the stand for a short
time tlds morning Lieutenant Wells be
gan yesterday with a narration of the
battle of Santiago as he saw it He told
of the events which came under his obser
vation and of the chase after the Colon
Regarding the conduct and bearing of
Commodore Schley the witness said thatt
he was with him every day during the-
campaign and was probably more closely
associated with him than any other man
The commodore Lieutenant Wells de
clared was always fearless and thor
oughly stif possessed on all occasions
He never saw iua laboring under any
mental excitement
Vot the Original Cop
It was developed during the direct ex
amination of Lictttnant Wells that Ad
miral Schley had sent all uf his official
papers to the Department after the cam
paign and that among them was tEe
original press cop ot the alleged dis
obedience of orders despatcli instead of
hav ing this original cup in the naval ap
pendix the Department elected to take a
copy which had ben first translated Into
cipher sent by cable and then translated
into plain English with all the resulting
errors By this means a foundation was
laid for the disobedienceofajordrridhiB
the Crowninshidcasev3ggj
The witness also testified that
dore Schley had received the Instructions
from the Navj Department not to un
necessarily endanger his ships ngalnst the
shore batteries on the da after th Bu
reau of Naval Intelligence had sent out
its plat and map showing the strength
and location or the Santiago fortifica
The cross examination of Schies flag
secrttar began before the recess and
continued all the afternoon He was
questioned b Mr Ha una who jumped
from one occasion and scene to another
in a desultory sort of a wa Lieutenant
Wells was made to repeat much of his di
rect testlmon and to go into long and
wearisome explanations of the manner in
whicn Commodore Schley handled and
acted upon his despatches and as to the
time when they arrived and by what
boats The solicitor took the witness
back and forward from Cienfuegos to
Santiago making a halt dozen retrograde
movements and occasionally getting as
far as Key West once when he had
gotten back to Cienfuegos for about the
ninth time Mr Ra ner suggested that he
go way back to Key West and begin over
After an hour or more had been con
sumed in an effort to determine some
thing definite in regard to despatches
Mr Rayncr said he would admit that
Xo 7 the Dear Schley letter was car
ried b the Dupont which arrived at
Cienfuegos on May 22 and that another
copv was received b the Hawk which
arrived the next da During the cross
examination Lieutenant Wells declared
that when Commodore Schley gave the
range of TOUU to TSuu yards at which tho
Colon was to be fired at during the recon
noissance of May 51 she then appeared
to be ling directl at the mouth of tho
haibor It was subsequently developed
that she lay inside the Morro about 2000

While J H Hunlev the chief machin
ist of the Texas in charge of the port en
gine of that vessel during the battle was
upon the stand for the purpose of cor

to discredit his testimony by an effort to
show that he hatl once made a mistake
In handling his engine Admiral Dewey
however ruled that Captain I mlys

the first witness ve sterdav was recullled
to the stand at his of n request in OTfler
to make a correction In his former testl

the Court and Captain Cook said
In m testimony I stated that the Ore
