Occasional Inquiries are made 1 '
thoughtful citizens regarding the cost
of challenging and defending the
America's cup, but the answers receiv
ed are always unsat factory, says the
New York IbTald. The conclusion Is
that the expense must be enormous,
but ns it is impossible to obtain any
thing like accurate figures the subject
la generally dropped.
On the eve of the international match
of this year it may be Interesting to
refer to this Important point and at
the same time to place the public iu
possession of a few facts that will give
them a good idea of the amounts of
money that are expended in trying to
capture the. old yachting trophy and
in the efforts made by the New York
Yacht club to defend it.
The planning and building of a cup
challenger or defender involve . much
time and labor and necessarily the out
lay of large sums of money. The de
signer nnd his corps of assistants are
the first that must be met. Mr. Fife,
for the challenging parties, nnd Cap
tain Nat Herreshofr. for the defend
ants, for instance, are men who place
a high value upon their sendees, and,
as the owners of the yachts are liberal
to a marked degree, opening negotia
tions with a view to the building of a
cup yacht means a fee that in Borne
other profession would be looked upon
as staggering in its proportions.
With the designer at work the build
ers in time are consulted, and with ar
rangements satisfactory in this wise
materials must be considered, then the
riggers kept in mind, as well, as the
sail makers, while finally the skip
pers and crew are secured. Money is
required by all these, and much of It.
Even after a vessel is completed and
placed in commission alterations and
repairs are required frequently at
times, while docking the craft for
cleaning and smoothing purposes
means large additional sums.
The. rather startling statement was
made by f-'ir Thomas Upton four years
ago that the mere cost of the Sham
rock t. was between $4U0.kK) and $3K).
OOO, while the expense of bringing the
vessel across the ocean and that of her
oliieere and crew were extra. That
seems a lug lot to pay for the vessel,
but Sir Thomas should be the best
authority on the subject of the cost of
the yacht.
If he expended a sum approaching
half a million dollars four years ng'-
for his challenging yacht the money
the present trip is costing him must be
far in excess of the figures named. The
Lipton tieet now here is proof of that.
It is easy to believe that the Shamrock
III. cost quite as much to build as the
! Shamrock I., and it is quite sure the
bringing over of three crews, those of
the Shamrocks and of the tender
Cruizer, must stand "bim Iu a bigger
amount than the single crew of four
years ago and the additional assistance
he obtained in the United Slates.
So. if $550,(100 or more represented
the challenger's outlay the first attotupt
he made upon the America's on if! it
can safely be estimated that something
in the neighborhood of SoOO.OUO will be
required to foot the bills at home and
here Incidental to his third trial to
win the old trophy.
With the amount that it costs the de
fending side, however, the interest Is
more widespread. I'.y the time the
yachts are called to sail the first race
for the cup the Reliance, selected to
defend it, will have cost, one way and
another, $-135,000 or more. That is a
staggering amount to contemplate, but
when everything is cleared up at the
cud of the season it may tie $150,000.
In addition to this sum, there must
be considered that in placing in com
mission the Constitution her running
expenses reached from $115,000 to $70,
000, while the Columbia has cost Mr. J.
rierpont Morgan $-15,000 or possibly
$55,000. These figures will therefore
show that the defense of the cup this
your will approach the very respectuble
amount of $575,000 or $000,000."
The building and rigging of the Re
liance cost a fortune. The yacht's con
struction required the best of work
men, while nil the standing and run
ning rigging was expressly made, and
her canvas oecunied the attention of a
New York Hospital
" I used a bottle of Qulnona in'
a case of anaemia following bron
chitis in a young man and he
reports a marked improvement.
Kindly send me six bottles, which
will be used in nty services at the
New York Hospital. Qninona is
certainly the most excellent and
palatable tonic I have ever used
and, though owing to the ethical
rules of the various medical so
cieties to which I belong I cannot
let you use my name, 1 will be
niot happy to recommend It to
my colleagues and patients. I
shall introduce It in the New
York Hospital." Quinona builds

The Reliance has povsibly a hundred
different sails, and ?13,ooO or so will
represent the e.-t of a suit. In this
particular the Constitution nnd the Co
lumbia have not been so expensive.
The tenders I 'ark City and Satellite
are said to have been purchased by
Mr. E. I. Morgan and Mr. August Bel
mont respectively, but they are valu
able assets aud need not be seriously
considered In this linaucial summary.
The tender Sunbeam is chartered, and
tin-re can be no return from her, but
Sir Thomas' tender Cruizer will be
valuable after the match.
With a crew of about fifty-five on the
Reliance owl a crew on the tender Sun
beam there are many men to be looked
after daily. The yachts' Bailors are
paid big wages ?;13 a month or more
and there is a scale of prize money ar
ranged by Mr. Iselin so liberal that a

and the o'.iieers and crew of the Reli
ance and their own ship as are found

All changes in the yacht's fittings, all
alterations or repairs to rigging and
spars, are paid for extra, while the
docking bills are very large. The
$150,000 or more that the Reliance will
cost must not be included in any way
with the New York Yacht club's ex
penditures in arranging for the races.
The nine men who own the defender
will bear the burden of that vessel's
expenses, but the syndicate does not
meet the personal bills of Mr. Iselin,
the managing owner.
It may cost the club $25,t00 or more
to see that the match is properly sailed
nnd the challenging vessel receives all
that Is due her, while the amount in
cidentally expended by the public that

Abyssinian Monarch to aiake- Ilia

the Mnhdists. Then he drove the Ital
ians out of his kingdom. Then he wel
comed the diplomats of European na
tions, playing one against another.
Now he is to have a mint, says the
New York World. What an advance
this means may be realized from the
fact that Abyssinia until recently has
been getting along with cubes of rock
salt for cash. A small amount of coin
minted in France has of late been in
circulation. Now the king will make
his own. Consul Masterson of Aden
reports that bo has saved up 110,30
pounds of gold for the purpose.
There are 400 tons of mint machin
ery. It was sold by a Stettin concern
and was landed at Djibouti, East Af
rica, with a competent mechanic to set
it up. The machinery will be transport
ed by rail to New Harrar. about 150
miles, the end of the road. Thence it
will be transported by caravan to the
capital, Addis Abeba. the caravan jour
ney occupying more than a month.

Floor In China.
There is sin-h a demand In Siberia for
agricultural machinery nnd appliances
of American manufacture that the min
ister of agriculture in that country has
decided to lend government aid to its
distribution. ('onmier"ial Agent Croon
er at Vladivostok Inferma the state de
partment nt Washington that a special
fund has been set astde to establish at
Ilabarofsk a government warehouse for
the benefit of importing jobbers, says
J. D. Whe'.pley in the New York Com
mercial Advertiser. The pre-Amur man
agement of imperial properties will
have charge and will operate to a large
extent In American goods.
The Siberian officials state that they
are greatly in need of Information frota
competent sources regarding the pur
chase nnl importation of such goods
from the United Staffs, and they ask
for the address of firms dealing in ag
ricultural machinery, price lite, and
catalogues, lists of steamship's plying
between the United States nnd Vladi
vostok and the best terms upon which
goods will be sold.
Mr. Crooner also finds considerable
complaint to the effect that in quoting
prices American firms do not state their
bottom figures. What is needed is the
lowest quotation for goods, details as
to payments In cash or on time, the
latter being preferred, and several
copies of a brief catalogue in the Rus
sian language.
Consul General Patterson, at Calcut
ta, Is confident that a large Increase in
the American trade would follow the
establishment of a rapid and reliable
freight line of steamers between New
York and Calcutta. He Bays that the
only way goods can be shipped at pres
ent from New York to Calcutta is via
Glasgow, Liverpool, London or Naples,
and there is long delay in making these
Shipments. Out of the ?25o,000,(HH)
worth of goods Imported annually by
India the United States only had about
1.5 per cent of the trade, while Fug
land bad about 07 per cent r.nd Ger
many, France nnd Belgium, in the or
der named, the larger part of the re
mainder. About 50 per cent of the Imports art
cotton goods, and the next largest are
Iron and steel manufacture, mid the
American consul s:es no reason why
the United States should not cempete
In these lines. He soys that if a direct
line of steamers was established be
tween New York and Calcutta, sailing
not less than once every month, the
passage not to be more Than forty day k
the importers could then rely upon re
ceiving their goods at specified times.
Consul Patterson also recommends
the putting of active, capable men into
the field to exploit the markets of the
country. There are no restrictions on
trade in India, the only obstacle being
the lack of rapid transit and more de
termined effort to secure business.
In line with the suggestion made t y
Consul Patterson the bureau of statis
tics at Washington has been looking up
the figures on the trade between India
and the United States. -India ranks
sixth among the exporting and tenth
among the luiiiorting countries. Last
year her exports amounted to over
$400,000,000 nnd her linjHirts to $204.
000,000. Thirty-six per cent of theic
Imports were cottons. Next on the list
were iron and steel products. The bu
reau estimates that 50 per cent of In
dia's Imports are of a class of goods
which might be called Indigenous to
the United States and that fully three
fourths of the entire list Is made up of
articles successfully produced by and
exported from the United States. Not
withstanding this fact, our exports to
India amount to less than 2 per cent
of the imports of that country.
The popularity of American flour in
Chirm is attracting attention on both
sides of the globe. The British consul
general at Canton In a report sent from
China to Loudon and published in that
city states that the demand for flour
among emigrants returned from the
United States is so great that the
quantity of flour Imported In !ft02 ex
ceeded that of 1001 by 05.831,328
pounds and was also some 78,400,000
pounds in excess of the average for
the past five years. Stated in dollars,
we are now selling to the Chinese $4,
