NEWCASTLE'S VIEWS ON STATE OF RITUALISM
New-York, March 20.
Disestablishment of the Church of England from
its time honoured alliance to the State is the out-
look.for theProtestant Episcopal faith abroad, de-
9l#a 1 His Grace the Duke of Newcastle, who re-
turned to this -city fromni the South last week.
Disturbers at divine services, he believes, have
caused general alarm at the power of ritualism in
England, and .a severance from the low church
section is expected.
When the Duke of Newcastle arrived in this
country on December 17tb, it was suggested that
His Grace might have come on a mission from
the ritualists of England, among whom he long
has held a conspicuous place. He is interested in
a closer union between the ritualists in the
Church of England and the High Church section
of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the United
States. He has returned from Florida where he
'has been seeking rest and health.
On Sunday he met the Rev. George M. Chris-
tian, rectlr of the Church of St. Mary the Virgin,
and the Rev. Arthur Ritchie, rector of St. Igna-
tius' Church. His Grace will be a leading parti-
cipant in several informal conferences to be held
during this week with High Church leaders among
the Protestant Episcopalians of this city. He
will go to Boston next week, and later to Phila-
delphia. The Duke of Newcastle on Sunday ex-
pressed decided views on the state of ritualism in
England, when seen at the Hotel Savoy. He
"Protestant Episcopal churches are not so ex-
trAmely low in America as they are in England.
Here they are divided into high churches and
broad churches-broad in the sense of laxity of
doctrine. There is no brawling, however, in the
Episcopalian churches here. Kensit has been go-
ing about in the high churches of England and
actually brawling at the services. That would
not be tolerated in this country.
"Owing to these disturbances the Bishops of
the English Church have taken fright at ritualism.
They are therefore trying to suppress ritualism.
We are not aggressive, but we only want to be
left to ourselves. Ritualism signifies doctrine.
It is an attack on our doctrine by the Bishops
themselves. That is why we are fighting for it.
If it were only an attack on the outward form it
would not be serious.
I think it will lead eventually to disestablish-
ment in England. There will be a severance of
the Church from the State. The extremely low
section of the Church will probably leave us. It
may come at any time within twenty years. We
have a strong fighting body. A radical govern-
ment would probably disestablish us, whether we
wished it or not. B'lt what we really want is
dileethtblishment under a conservative govern-
"I don't know what the King would have to
profess after disestablishment. I suppose he
would have to call himself a Protestant. It is
not our idea to get High Churchmen here entan-
gled with our troubles in England. We simply
wish to have them better informed of each other.
There is no movement on foot to again promote
a unign between the Anglican Church and the
Church of Rome.
The possibility of a union of the Western and
Eastern churches is nearer accomplishment.
There are not so many antagonistic laws in the
Russian and Greek Church as in the Roman
Church. I think that eventually the difficulties
that exist -between the Eastern and Western
Churches may be overcome. Steps have already
been taken to that end. Tlere are political diffi-
culties between England and Russia to be dealt
"The Church of Russia is wrapped up in the
State. Personally I shall be very much interest-
ed in the movement to unite them with the An-
glipan Church. But the movement wants for a
'leader a man who knows Russia well."
As a result of conference the Duke of Newcastle
has held with prominent ritualists in this country,
His Grace has formed a definite plan to bring in-
to close union the ritualists of England and the
United States. This will be attempted at first
though the joint publication of the Church Re-
view. It will be conducted by English and
American ritualists along lines best calculated to
cement this section of the Church in both coun-
tries. New York, Philadelphia and Boston are
to be the centres of these efforts toward union.
Later the plan is to extend the work to other
parts of the United States.
CANADA'S TRADE INCREASING.
The Deputy Minister of Trade and Commerce,
Mr. Parmelee, in his introduction to the annual
report, just presented to the Dominion Parlia-
ment, points out that the year ended June 30,
1900, shows increases in the trade and commerce
of the Dominion of Canada over the unprecedent-
ed figures of the previous year. 'The imports show
a total value of $189,622,513, as against $!62,764,-
308 during 1899, and the exports $191,894,723,
against $158,896,905, a total increase of imports
and exports of $59,896,023. The percentage of
increase is much the same in imports and exports,
thus indicating a general and healthy growth, ra-
ther than being due to any special cause.
As regards imports entered for consumption
from Great Britain and the United States, the in-
crease shows a little higher percentage from Great
Britain and a slightly lower one from the United
States, as compared with the previous year, the
combined imports from the two countries being
nearly 85 per cent. of the total imports. The
percentage of exports to Great Britain, as com-
pared with the total exports, fell off about 5 1-3
per cent. and those to the United States increased
to about 6 1-3 per cent., the combined exports to
the two countries aggregating over 91 per cent. of
the total exports. he statements of the aggre-
rate trade by countries shows increases with near-
ly all countries, only a very few inconsiderable
CANADIAN WOMEN'S LOYALTY.
The Women's Historical Society of Toronto pro-
poses to erect a memorial hall to Queen Victoria
by means of ten cent subscriptions, so that every
woman in the city may be able to have a share in
it. The women of Regina wish to erect a memo-
rial statue, but as the Daughters of the Empire
are advocating memorial buildings, rather than
monuments, the plan may be changed.
In the matter of resolutions of sympathy with
the King and the royal family the Daughters of
the Empire took the lead. They also sent a
wreath of flowers to the Queen's funeral, and
have announced their intention of memorializing
the imperial and colonial governments with a
view to having the Queen's birthday May 24,
made an imperial memorial holiday.
The National Council of Women is now engag-
ed in preparing an address to Queen Alexandra,
.and the movement is an extremely popular one.
The name of the Countess of Minto heads the list,
and after it come the names of the wivw s of the
provincial Governors. The signature sheets are
being circulated by the affiliated societies, and the
whole, when done, will be handsomely engrossed
To TRY TO STOP MULE SHIPMENTS.
General Sam Pearson, from the Transvaal, is in
New Orleans to see what he can do in the way of
preventing the shipment of mules and horses to
the British army in South Africa. Gen. Pearson
is from Barberton, in the Lydenburg district. He
served with Gen. Botha and was assistant super-
intendent of the commissary department of the
Boer Army. He sailed from Africa on Septem-
ber 26, 1900, visited this city and Washington,
went to Holland to see Kruger for further instruc-
tions and then returned to this country. He con-
sulted several lawyers here and said that steps
would be taken to prevent the shipment of horses
and mules from New Orleans to be used by the
British Army against the Boers.
Gen. Pearson will remain in New Orleans some
time to test whether sending supplies and stock
to Africa can be prevented. He expressed the
opinion that the presence of the bubonic plague
in Cape Town might induce tlheUnited States to
interfere with the traffic with South Africa, be-
cause of the danger of the introduction of the dis-
ease here through the mule and horse transports.
If the sanitary plea will not suffice, he says legal
steps will be taken.
WHALING INDUSTRY DECREASING.
According to the annual review of the whaling
industry as prepared by the Whaleman's Ship-
ping List," tle past year was not very satisfac-
tory. While the sperm whale fleet did well the
right whale fleet met with only fair success.
There were two disasters to the fleet during the
year-the bark Alaska of San Francisco, lost at
Cape Nome, and the brig Rosa Baker of New
London, lost at Port Stanley, Falkland Islands.
The present fleet is made up of forty vessels.
On January 1 New Bedford had fourteen ships
and barks and eight schooners, a total tonnage of
4,250 ; Provincetown had four schooners of 438
tons; Boston, one bark of 385 tons, and San
Francisco, twelve square riggers and one schooner,
of 3,673 tons.
PREPARING FOR EXPOSITION OPENING.
Plans for the opening of the Pan-American Ex-
position are assuming definite shape. It has
been decided that it shall be opened promptly on
May 1st. At that time President McKinley and
his Cabinet are expected to be on their way to the
Pacific Coast. It is proposed to connect the Pres-
ident's train by telegraph with the Temple of
Music. Direct telegraphic communication will
also be established with the executive offices of
the Presidents of all the republics of the Western
Hemisphere and the Governor-General of Canada.
They will be requested to touch electric buttons
iurtheirrespective offices at precisely -To'clock,
Buffalo time, which will start a piece of machine-
ry of the Exposition. It is expected that they-
will also transmit a message of congratulation.
President McKinley, from his special car, will
start the great fountain pumps and will send a
message of greeting. The details of this novel
arrangement are being worked out.
On May 14th it is proposed to hold dedicatory
ceremonies, when it is expected that Vice-Presi.
dent Roosevelt, Governor Odell of New York
State and a large number of national officials and
diplomats will be present.
A day, probably between June 9 and 12, will be
designated President's Day when President
McKinley and his party, on their return from the
Pacific Coast, will be present.
ANDREW CARNEGIE'S GREAT GIFTs.
Through the ustees of the New York Public
Library, Astor, Tilden and Lenox Foundations,
Andrew Carnegie has offered to the City of New
York $5,200,000 for the purpose of building sixty-
five free public libraries. The only conditions at-
tached to the offer are that the city shall provide
the ground sites and shall contract in perpetuity,
to provide for the maintenance of the libraries af-
ter they are built.
The city officials have had a conference in re-
gard to the acceptance of the gift and a committee
has been appointed to draft a bill for presentation
to the State Legislature. This bill will authorize
the city to acquire sites for the sixty-five branch
libraries and make appropriations for the carrying
on of the work.
An effort will be made in the City Council to
take official recognition of the generosity of Mr.
Carnegie in offering to the city such a magnificent
gift. It is proposed to erect a statue of Andrew
Carnegie in order that he may know while yet
living that the people of New York hold him in
veneration and esteem.
A member of the City Council in speaking of
the matter said that too often great men die with-
out due recognition, on the part of the public, of
Mr. Carnegie has also recently given away
$4,000,000 to be used as a pension fund for his
old employes and $1,000,000 for the maintenance
of libraries near Pittsburg. The city of St. Louis
Mr. Carnegie has offered the sum of $1,000,000
for library purposes. Besides these gifts many
smaller ones have been made by Mr. Carnegie.

Vickers-3Ma.ci, Dividead.-London, March 19.
At the annual meeting of Vickers Sons & Maxim
to-day a dividend of 20 per cent. was declared by
the Board of Directors.
It was announced that there had never been
any intention of amalgamating with certain Amer-
ican firms. There had been negotiations with
some of these companies with the view of getting
the Vickers Company's system of ordnance intro-
duced in the United States on a scale commensu-
rate with its importance. Up to the present time
the terms offered had not been acceptable, but the
company had not abandoned its intention of try-
ing to get its guns manufactured in America.
Shamrock IPI.s Innovation.-London, March 19.
A Glasgow despatch to the Central News says the
secret of the new Shamrock's design is that the
body is thrown forward instead of aft as in previ-
ous challengers. She has a bluff entrance and an
easy run aft to secure the elasticity which is al-
ways prominent in American boats and the plates
are jointed in order to avoid overlapping. The
builders are satisfied that she will be a first-class
racer and other experts assert that she is the most
elastic, lightest and fastest challenger that ever
attempted to capture the America's Cap.

Vatican that the sovereign's coronation oath be
maintained unimpaired, and regretting the decis-
ion of the Government to appoint a Parliamentary
committee to consider the revision of the declara-

oath should not be altered merely to pleas tshe

"The British Workman and His
Under the above title Mr. William Woodward
discusses, in the current number of the Nineteenth
Century and After, the subject of the decline in
British trade. The article is not lengthy, but the
writer has contrived to pack his thoughts close.
He deals only with the building trade and traces,
if not an absolute connexion, at least a suspicious
coincidence, between the supremacy of Trade
Unionism and the decline of trade in Great Bri-
tain. Much of what he says applies, beyond a
doubt, to many trades besides the building trade.
Notwithstanding the hopeful view of Lord Salis-
bury, as enunciated before the London Chamber
of Commerce the other evening, it is a fact that a
considerable volume of trade has passed from
Great Britain to Germany and America ; and in-
dications are not wanting that all is not well with
some that remains. Sweet incense in the form
of technical education shall be offered to the of-
fended deities, hecatombs (if they cost nothing)
shall propitiate them, they shall smile once more
upon their faithful votaries ; trade shall return
with unnumbered blessings in its train,-free
houses, free bread, beer, boots, and tobacco. Mr.
Woodward does not hope for much from technical
education, (if education it be), neither from the
scheme to provide artisans' dwellings.
The English workman can turn out goods of
first-class quality, and, were he contented to work
as perseveringly as the German, would not fall
seriously behind as to quantity. A recent report
of the Labour Department of the Board of Trade
shews that workmen's wages have been steadily
on the increase for the last four years. The effect
upon the working expenses of any concern being
left out of the question, that upon the total out-
put has been far from satisfactory. Shors hours
and large pay might be supposed to exercise a
powerful influence for good upon the mind of the
workman, by giving him time and means to im-
prove himself. Mr. Woodward's experience does
not favour this view.
We know that the men are paid at noon on Satur-
day, and that many of them are not seen again on the
building till the Tuesday morning following. It may
be that they have been studying the handiwork of
their predecessors in the South Kensington Museum, or
that they have been giving the benefit of their practical
knowledge to some of the pupils at the technical
schools, or have been doing a little work in the garden.
That I do not know; but I do know that at the dinner
hour on Tuesday some of ths men who have taken 3
or so on the Saturday cannot get their dinner till they
have borrowed the price of it from the foreman, so that
the increase of wage has resulted in loss of work to the
master, itself of the utmost importance, and has confer-
red no benefit whatever upon the workman or his fa-
Of course all this means delay in filling contracts
which always has a most pernicious effect upon
trade, and gives an immense advantage to the
German and American who are not hampered by
Trade Unionism, and restricted to a certain clique
in the labour-market. They can consequently
manufacture and send over to Great Britain arti-
cles quite as good made in one-half the time, and
costing one-third less money. And thus it may
happen, and, no doubt, sometimes does happen,
that after making, say a pair of boots, which his
employer cannot sell under 15/-, the happy Bri-
tish workman pockets his wages, steps into the
shop next door, and buys himself as good a pair
of American-made boots for 10/-.
Technical education may be, and, no doubt is,
a very fine thing in the abstract; but whether it
possesses all the advantages claimed for it by its
advocates is a proposition which yet remains to
be proven. All the technical education ever
dreamed by the most sanguine will not mend mat-
ters so long as by the influence of the Trade Union
the quick intelligent earnest and enthusiastic
workman is not a whit better off than his idle,
careless, and dissipated neighbour. Perhaps uti-
litarian education may be the right thing ; per-
haps it would be better for boys to form their
ideas of English literature upon choice selections
from the Daily Chronicle or the Review of Beviews
than upon the glowing pages of Macaulay or Gib-
bon, Shakespeare or Scott; but the question will
recur whether the boy's early education ought not
after all to provide him with some resource for
his hours of relaxation ? Will education of a
purely utilitarian nature enable the workman of
the future to free himself from the bonds of the
Trade Union ; or will it merely tend to rivet the
chains yet more firmly upon him ?
Mr. Woodward is of opinion that a strong Act
of Parliament should be passed to prevent Trade
Unions from interfering with that liberty which
is Britain's proudest boast, but which her work-
men do not enjoy.
New York Fast Express Service.
On Saturday forenoon we received a duplicate
copy of a type written letter addressed to the
Mayor and Corporation of Hamilton from Messrs.
A. E. Outerbridge & Coy., New York, with a
memo to publish it. A similar copy must have
been sent to the Colonist as that Journal published
it in its issue of Saturday. The Mayor informs
us that he received the original from Mr. Jas. A.
Conyers on Saturday afternoon when calling at
the Quebec Steamship Coy.'s Office. The S. S.
Trinidad having come alongside the wharf at
Hamilton about 8 a.m. Saturday, the letter was
in type before the original could be delivered to
the Corporation. The Mayor isof opinion that an
error was fallen into by the New York Office of
the Quebec Steamship Coy. in not putting into
the Agent's despatches the copies of the letter to
the Corporation ; for, otherwise he is at a loss to
understand why copies were sent direct to the
Press, delivered, and in the case of the Colonist,
Bloemfontein, March 22.-Military operations
in the south eastern part of Orange River Colony
are progressing. Major Julian Byng has brought
in 300 refugees 16,000 cattle and 40,000 sheep
from the Wepener and Smith Field districts. Col
Bethune has sent in 17 prisoners from Thaba N
Chu. 300 prisoners are now camped here.
Bloemfontein, March 22.-The result of the
combined movements against Gen. Fourie, near
Thaba N'chu was the capture of two hundred
Boers, one hundred and forty thousand sheep,
five thousand horses and a host of cattle. The
Boers broke southward to the right and left.

ed and four wounded and four Boers were killed.
The number of Boer wounded has not been ascer-

the Bermuda Agent of the Quebec Steamship Coy.
before being delivered. The usual course is to
publish after the documents have been submitted
to the Corporation or by special request or per-
mission of the Mayor.
We are given to understand that the existing
lease of the Hamilton Hotel has yet 14 years to
run and that any modification of it must be the
result of a mutual understanding between the
Corporation as owners of the property and the
Lessees. The condition attached to the Quebec
S. S. Coy.'s undertaking a Special Fast Express
Steam Service between Bermuda and New York,
of adding 200 rooms to the Hamilton Hotel, prac-
tically means the construction of a new Hotel in
connection with the Hamilton Hotel. The pro-
position is reasonable that the Hotel provisions
should be in proportion to the Steam service pro-
vided. And when both may be provided, the
question is pertinent, what commercial profit will
accrue. The desirability of having the Tourist
business on the most satisfactory basis will be
readily admitted. But the whole question should
be prudently approached, and no hazardous risks
undertaken that may re-act prejudicially. All
concerned will doubtless consider the whole pro-
blem calmly and endeavour to arrive at a just
conclusion in keeping with the advanced ideas of

No. 39 Broadway, New York,
Mar. 16, 1901.
Honourable Thomas S. Reid, Mayor,
Honourable Gentlemen of the Corporation,
Sire :-We respectfully beg to lay the following
before your Corporation.
For many years it has been the policy of the
Quebec S. S. Co. and its agents in New York and
Bermuda, to maintain the steamship service be-
tween New York and Bermuda in such a manner
as to attract the tourists from the United States to
Bermuda, as well as to further the other direct
interests of Bermuda. We do not think it is ne-
cessary to go into any detail as to record, for the
regularity, especially during the present winter,
has not been equalled by any other transportation
company trading foreign from New York.
We think we can state without fear of question
that no steamer could be built at the present day
of the size of the "Trinidad," to maintain the
same speed, with any greater comfort than is pro-
vided on the Trinidad." It has, however, been
reported at various times that the tourists, hotel
managers, and others at Bermuda have expressed
the opinion that a larger and even faster ship than
the "Trinidad would attract a much larger
number of tourists.
While it is a great question whether any possi-
ble trade to Bermuda, would ever pay interest on
an investment of a ship costing upwards of 120,-
000, it is certain that until much larger provision
is made at Bermuda than exists at present for
tourists desiring to go to first class, large, modern
hotels, no larger transportation facilities can be
utilized than have already been provided by the
Quebec S. S. Co. It has repeatedly happened this
season, and last season, that tourists desiring to
go to Bermuda have been informed by cable that
no rooms could be had either at the Hamilton or
However, ia view of the reports above noted,
we have obtained the consent of the directors of
the Quebec S. S. Co., and we are authorized to in-
form you that, coincidently with the Corporation
arranging for an increase of 200 rooms in the Ham-
ilton Hotel, and the owners of the Princess Hotel
arranging for a reasonable addition, the Quebec
S. S. Co. will take active steps to obtain a larger
and faster steamner for the Bermuda Line. It will
probably take not lesasthan.six months to arrange
the purchase and fitting of such a steamer, and it
will probably take eighteen months to build a

have much pleasure in shewing it to any who may

that the failure of the peace negotiations in South
Africa is causing the Chancellor of the Exchequer
to consider the expediency of abandoning the sug-
gestion of a shilling registration duty on corn in
avour of a two shilling direct duty.
London, March 23-Colonial Secretary Chamb-
erlain in the House of Commons to-day said no
specific objections had been made by Gen. Botha
to any of the peace terms offered by Gen. Kitche-
ner and Genl. Botha had made no counter pro-
posals. The only information in the possession of
the government, outside of that published in the
papers was contained in the private telegram from
General Kitchener saying General Botha had a
strong objection to Sir Alfred Milner.
London, March 23-The Speaker to-day says,
there are unmistakable signs of more trouble be-
tween the masters and the operatives in the cotton
trade. A period of trade activity has been fol-
lowed by a reaction accelerated by the high price
of raw cotton and other materials, a poor demand
from India and an almost complete stoppage of
buying from China.
London, March 23.-The House of Commons
had quite a lively five minutes to-day during the
debate on the navy estimates caused by Mr. Bal-
four the Government leader closuring the discus-
sion. Mr. John Redmond the Irish leader in pro-
testing made an assertion which Sir J. Fortescue
Flannery unionist flatly contradicted. The Irish
nationalists shouted protestations and called for
the police. Amidst much disorder Mr. William
Redmond nationalist questioned the right of a
member to flatly contradict another. The presid-
ing officer held that the denial might have been
couched in more polite terms but that it was not
unparliamentary to say things were untrue.
London, March 25-Mr. Chamberlain when
asked in the House of Commons to-day if it was
possible to change the offer of peace terms to the
Boers said, the negotiations were closed, and there
was no intention of reopening them. Replying to
Sir Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett (Conservative), who
asked whether Russia had presented China with a
modified agreement regarding Manchuria, and
whether Russia had withdrawn from the so-called
concert of Europe, Lord qranborne said, the gov-
ernment understood that the terms of the pro-
posed agreement were still under discussion, but
he was unable to make any positive statement on
that subject; the Russian government,, he added,
had informed the government of Great Britain
that Russia had no intention of withdrawing from
co-operating w4th the other Powers in China.

ARRIVAL OF THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF
CORNWALL AND YORK AT MALTA.
Malta, March 25.-The steamer Ophir with the
Duke and Duchess of Cornwall arrived here this
morning. The warships in the harbour were man-
ned and dressed. In Valetta great crowds filled
the terraces and the ramnparts commanding the
harbour. The Ophir was met 18 miles out by a
flotilla of ten torpedo boat destroyers, and entered
the harbour amid salutes of artillery from St.
Angelo, the Citadel, the Forts and the warships.
Malta, March 22.-A half dozen vessels of the
Mediterranean squadron have been located along
the course of the Ophir so as to communicate by
wireless telegraphy with telegraph stations along
the coast to report to Vice Admiral Sir John
Fisher. At the Squadron head quarters here the
exact position of the Duke and Duchess of Corn-
wall from time to time will be known. The ex-
periment is to test the strategical value of the
wireless telegraphy as well as to pay a compliment
to the Duke and Duchess.

Alfred G. Vanderbilt. Maj. Gen. Eaton selected
as his hotel during his stay in Washington, the
one at which Naval Attache Bayley and wife of
the British Embassy made their home. On the
evening of March 2, Senator Depew gave a dinner
party at which Gen. and Mrs. Eaton were among
the guests. Gen. Eaton has for some time been
rusticating in Bermuda where he was sent by his
Government after the famous mutiny of the Grena-
dier Guards of which at the time he was colonel; of
course every Englishman is aware of this little page
of military history, and equally every Englishman
in Washington felt some resentment that Genl.
and Mrs Eaton were accepting social invitations
while every member of the embassy was in deep-
est mourning and declining all invitations. But
of all this there was nothing apparent upon the
surface while the Eatons were In Washington,
and they had a merry time and were great fa-
vourites in the smart set. Just before leaving
town Genl. Eaton called upon Lord Pauncefote
and lodged a formal complaint that neither Capt.
Bayly, the naval attache of Embassy nor his wife
had called upon Gen. and Mrs Eaton. There-
upon Capt. Bayly was asked to make'a third in
the conference in the ambassador's study and was
asked by Lord Pauncefote to explain the cause of
the alleged discourtesy; with anything but an
abashed demeanour Capt. Bayly replied : I did
not imagine that Gen. Eaton desired to be recog-
nized while in Washington inhis official capacity
since he is not in mourning for the Queen.

NORTON, 69 & sO, CHANCERY LANE, LONDON. Over n0 years'
DATE OF-SHAMROCK'S LAUNCHING.
The Countess of Dufferiu and Ava has been ask-
ed to christen Sir Thomas Lipton's challenger,
Shamrock II. The Earl of DI)ufferin is, as most
people know, the commodore of the Royal Ulster
Yacht Club, which has twice forwarded Sir Tho-
mas Lipton's challenge to America. He was one
of the first to express his approval when Sir Tho-
mas first thought of challenging. Sir Thomas is
expecting to see the Shamrock launched in the
last ten days of April, and it is now fairly certain
that all three craft to be chiefly interested in the
cup racing will be sent down the ways at about
the same time, namely in the latter half of April.
It is evident that the Shamrock's owner does not
wish her launched before that time even if she is
ready. it has several times been printed that Sir
Thomas put in his challenge almost at the last
moment, and gained an advantage by immediate-
ly starting to build before any syndicates were
formed in America to build for the defence. iHe
does not wish an idea of this kind to become pre-
valent, and his craft will be launched at a time
which will tell that no advantage has been gained.
The secrets concerning the new challenger's
construction have been better kept in this case
than ever before, but there seems to be reason to
believe that Watson, the designer, thinks he has
made a discovery that is wor. i secreting, and it
has been fully admitted by E Thomas that this
comes directly from the tests tuat have been made
in the Denny testing tanks. There was no period
of the first Shamrock's short career in which the
owner spoke with such confidence of victory as
since Watson began the construction of the new
craft, and it has been admitted that the changes
of design necessitated by the tank investigations
are of a radical kind.
SIR THOMAS CONFIDENT.
Sir Thomas Lipton when at Glasgow recently
talked about his hopes of lifting the Cup" and
seemed to be confident of success. Speaking of
the amended conditions for the races to a repre-
sentative of the Yachting World, he said :
The suggestion that a flying start should be
adopted was put forward more as a proposal for
consideration than as an actual request. The
only thing that we were really anxious about was
it should be made clear whether a yacht which
had once crossed the line, say close on gun fire,
should have the liberty of throwing about and
crossing again with the two-minute margin and
claiming to be timed as starting with the last
crossing. We were anxious to have it laid down
that a yacht once across the line after the starting
signal had been given should be counted as hav-
ing started. They met us in this in the same
generous spirit that they have always done, and
acceded at once to our request.
The clause for allowing Shamrock II. three
weeks for fitting out was omitted from the agree-
ment in mistake, and it has been restored with
only the necessary alterations in the dates. Alto-
gether I think that the conditions as they now
stand a-e proof of -the desire of the New York
Yacht Club Committee to meet us in the most
generous sporting spirit. In my opinion they are
so drafted as to insure an excellent test of the two
boats, and I am satisfied that if Shamrock II. is
anything faster than the boat chosen to meet her
we shall bring back the Cup.
It may seem a rash thing," he further said,
" after our experiences of the last race to give ex-
pression to anything which smacks of confidence,
but, to speak frankly, I look forward to the next
races feeling as nearly as possible certain that we
will come through with flying colors. Mr. Wat-
son was not at all anxious to undertake this work
of designing another challenger, and I believe
that all the money I could have offered him would
not have induced him to take it in hand had it
not been that he saw what seemed to him to be a
fair prospect of success. In the course of his ex-
perimenting in connection with this boat he made
discoveries which I believe are of the utmost im-
portance and likely to have a big effect on the fu-
ture of designing. It is too early yet to come to
particulars but I may say that it is likely that
the model of Shamrock II. is calculated to give
designers on both sides of the Atlantic something
to think about."
Both Shamrocks Coming Over.-Glasgow, March
17.-Mr. Fife, the yacht designer, has been nego-
tiating with Sir Thomas Lipton with a view to
making alterations in Shamrock I. that he be-
lieves would greatly increase her speed. Sir
Thomas Lipton, however, after consulting with
his advisers, has decided that the former challen-
ger shall be restored as nearly as possible to the
trim in which she sailed the cup races, so as to at-
tain as reliable a comparison as possible of the
speed of the Columbia and Shamrock II. The
trials between the two Shamrocks will therefore
be of exceptional interest.
Scott & Cox, of Greenock, are making good pro-
gress in refitting Shamrock I, and her racing spars
will be stepped during the next few days.
It has just been decided that both Shamrocks
are to go to America, and qn effort will be made
to give them a full month's tuning up before the
races for the cup.
London, March 18.-Mr. Herreshoff, jr., de-
scribing the new defender in an interview pub-
lished by The Daily Mail this morning,
I hope Shamrock II will win, as a British vic-
tory would do more to develop yachting on both
sides of the Allantio and to promote goodwill be-
tween the two nations than anything else could.

From the Londox Daily News.
Unschooled in'letters and in arts unversed;
Ignorant of Empire; bounded in their view
By the lone billowing veldt where they upgrew
Amid great silences; a people nursed
Apart, the far-sown seed ef them that erst
Not Alva's sword could tame; now, blindly hurled
Against the march of the majestic world,
They fight and die, with dauntless bopms eurst.
Crazed if you will; demented, not to yield
Ere all is reft; Yet, mad though b#he"may be,
They have striven as noblest Englishmen did use
To strive for freedom; and no Briton he,.
Who to such valour in a desperate field
A knightly salutation can refuse.
GREAT SEAL CATCH OFF LABRADOR.
St. Johns, N. F., March 19.-The sealing stea-
mer Southern Cross has arrived here, being the
first of the fleet of sealers to reach home. She
has on board 26,500 seals, which were caught in
ten days, the shortest time ever known.
She reports that all the other sealers are doing
very well. The seals are lying in unusually
large herds off Belle Isle Strait and Lrbrador. and
the fleet struck them last week (Tuesday.) Sice
then more than one hundred thousand seals have
been caught. Five weeks remain in which to
complete what is expected to prove the greatest
seal fishing season ever known, the catch perhaps
reaching three hundred thousand.
When the Southern Cross sailed the Vanguard
had 12,000 seals on board and 2,000 panned. The
Iceland had 15,000 panned. The Greenland is in
The Aurora and the Terra Nova finished pan-
ning last Saturday. The Algeripe had,7,000 seals
on board and "15,000 panned. The Labrador had
7,000 on board, and the Virginia Lake 18,000.
The Newfoundland is in the same neighbourhood.
The Neptune had 20,000 to 28,000 loadql .and
panned, the Diana 'ad 15,000, the Nimrod had
12,000 loaded and 6,000 panned and the Ranger
had 15,000 on board and 25,000 panned. The
Walrus is in the same neighbourhood.
The gulf steamers, Hope and Harlow, were re-
ported off Cape Ray this morning, taking seals.
Panning has a special significance as applied to
the seal industry. As the small boats from the
steamers hunt down the seals they gather the ani-
mals on a cake or pan of ice and put up the ship's
flag in token of possession. This is called pan-
ning. As convenient the steamer runs up and
takes off the seals.

18.-Replying to an enquiry by John Redmond,
Irish Parliamentary leader, in the House of Com-
mons this afternoon, the Rt. Hon. Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach, Chancellor of the Exchequer, said
the question as to whether the title 'Defender of
the Faith should be retained on the new coins
could only be decided by the King. Mr. Red-
moud thereupon said that lie would take an early
opportunity to bring to the notice of the King-the
fact that he had no right on earth to this title.

16.-The King will give an audience next Thurs-
day to Lord Horries, a Roman Catholic peer, who
will move an enquiry in the House, of Lor#ds4pto
the wording of the acessiqn oath X as er
