V KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN I II VOLUME INO 12 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 24 1898 PRICE FIVE CENTS I AMERICAS CUP History of the Famous Trophy and the Yachts That Held It For Nearly Fifty Years English FUort to Kecapturo It lias ProceIFrultlcss Greater Interest Taken in the Coming Race Than in Any Former One VICTORY WILL HAVE TO BE EARNED Fortyseven nearly fifty years ago when Americas yacht cup came into existence yacht designing and yacht build ing were crude The rule of thumb lid the jack knife were conspicuous in the building of models and the straight eye of the builder was largely relied upon Now in the production of great I pleasureIthe most accurate ed and the materials have become costly and fine Intelligent artisans work upon detailed plans which are drawn upon designing boards and scientific results are obtained On the completion of his drawings the designer knows his boat and can estimate upon her speed before the keel is laidIt be news to manyeven yachters to know that Americas cup is of Eng lish origin In 1851 the Royal Yacht squadrcn of EnglaWl gave a cup to be sailed for It was won by the yacht America which belonged to Commodore Stevens of the New York Yacht Club It was then called the English cup but was awarded to the yacht America and called Americas cup It was the actual property of Commodore Stevens and was taken by him to his home in Ho bokenThe schooner which belonged to the first commodore of the New York Yacht Club was built from a model by George Steers in the early part of 1851 It was a keel boat Her construction was after the method in vogue those days the frames were doubled with a heavy ceiling jnsi4c and were tanked outside with trenails and composition spies WOle water line while iron was used above The ballast was of iron cast to fit her mast was a very short rig and her main top mast was very short the rigging in the mast was of hemp and the rigstay was of the same The rig was high and narrow and the jib had a boom on it This boat went abroad and created a con sternation among the yachtsmen of England on account of its elegance of shape and the beauty of its sails It won the cup and her builder and owner are re membered by yachtsmen to this day The cup came to America then and found a home with Commodore Stevens and for nineteen years it remained there but in 1870 the yachtsmen of Great Britain remembered it and wanted it back And the Stevens family decided to allow contests for it They challenged for it and the Cambria owned by James As bury came over but the British craft was defeated She was constructed in the orthodox fashion of those days and her hull was of wood She carried four tons of lead bolted on her keel She carried sixtyfive tons of ballast twenty ofwhich was of iron The Cambria was so heav ily rigged that her topsails were a revela tion to Americans They wouldstand stiff in a breeze and the yacht didwell to windward in a fresh breeze but in a moderate wind she could not race with our boats The Magic was the boat which defeated the Cambria for the old America had been laid aside The Magic was built by David Caril of City Island It was a sort of composite boat being the work of many de signers Her owner was Franklin Os good who was a past grand master at making boat go She was trimmed forward and trimmed aft andexperimented upon until great results for those days were obtained James Asbury of England again tried for the cup in 1871 and yachting circles had great fun with the English craft The challenging yacht was the schooner Livonia a keel boat ballasted with lead and iron In all the ballast weighed nearly seventyone tons She was a steel vessel but her bow was too short and she was beaten The boat which at that time defended the cup was the Co lumbia It also belonged to Franklin Osgood The Columbia was a typical old style yacht handsome and comforta ble but of course far outclassed by the racers of today- A little later England again challenged for the American cup but was defeated After five years or in 1870 there was another challenge the challenging yacht being the Countess of Dufferin She was a center board built in the double frame way and fastened with iron She was designed at Toronto The Countess of Dufferin was not a handsome boat but the Canadians believed that they could win the cup with her and the American schooner Madeline was sent out to meet her The Madeline was of the old double frame with heavy ceiling ahd planking fastened with spikes and trenails This kind of boat could go very fast down the windTo windward However she was Very deficient in com parison with the modern boats But the K LI Madeline easily defeated the Countess of Dufferin and again the trophy re mained in America In 1881 the sloop Atlanta made a rec ord as a challenging yacht The Atlanta was a Canadian yacht and was built to redeem the Canadian yachtsmen from the defeat which the Countess of Dufferin had suffered They were sure that they could win the prize The Atlanta was designed and built by Capt Cuffbert She was in the old style and her plank ing looked like white pine and appeared to be fastened with pine spikes The boat was inexpensive and was built evidently for fresh water She was light lookingand seemed to have a poor outfit in everyway Capt Cuffbert was always blamed by the Canadians for being too hopeful It was thought that in his certainly of winning he had slighted the buildingOur sloop the Mischief met the Atlanta and defeated her The Mischief was designedby A Cary Smith and those who remember the yachting season of 1881 will recall her beauty Her sail plan was large and she was heavily ballasted When she met the Atlanta she had twentyfour tons of lead She was owned by Joseph R Bush who was one of the leading yachting enthusiasts and sports of fifteen years ago The fifth challenge for the American cup was accepted in 1885 when Sir Richard Sutton came over with the Genesta He came over bent on carrying the cup back with him but Boston yachtsmen were just as bent on defeating him The boat was the Puritan designed by the late Edward Burgess and in the Puritan a great step forward was taken in yacht designing and yacht building She was only1 partly celled end in her construction every pound was left off that could be safely spared She was reduced to the lowest limit of usefulness Her rig was that of a cutter The jib was set flying short lower mast and big topsail SBit was a beautiful boat to look at and Bostonians went wild over her The crew of the Puritan comprised Edward Burgess General Payne Doctor Bryant the Forbes brothers and other well known victorious yachtsmen The sight when the race was won was one to be remembered In the great crew Captain Silsworth was pilot and when in the last race with the Genesta the Puritan let out to the windward in a heavy squall the enthusiasm of the spectators knew no bounds The Genesta was a splendid boat but it was seen that she was behind the times although her designer did very well on her- Boston again furnished the champion boat in 1880 In that year the Galatea owned by Lieut William Henn R N f4thJt lnlen ingajJ1i0Tlme Ma flower the Boston boat designed by the man who built the Puritan accepted the challenge and raced that year The May flower was built as light as possible and every available ounce was thrown over board It is said that General Payne re fused to allow a friend to bring his jack knife with him when the final race was to be sailed It was a hardly fought race but Gen Payne led over the line and the Mayflower won the race from the GalateaThe Galatea wasa steel vessel and a good boat she was but she was no match for the Mayflower as her owners had to admitThe next challenging yacht was the Thistle which came over in 1887 Today she is the Meteor owned by the Emperor William of Germany The Thistle was designed by Watson of Glasgow who de signed the Valkyrie I The Thistle was a steel boat and was one of the handsomest ever built She had the curious appearance of being all in one piece She was a comfortable boat and it was feared that she would defeat the American craft and take the cup so long held by this country but the Volunteer a good Amer ican boat met her and the Thistle was defeatedThe Sappho next defended the cup and there were no more challenges until the Valkyrie II challenged the Vigilant in 1803 and was beaten Three years ago the Valkyrie II issued a challenge for the cup and Lord Dun ravan brought over his boat to suffer ig nominious defeat at the sails of the gal lant little Defender which under the management of C Oliver Iselin as the representative of the American syndicate sailedaway from him so easily that His Lordship suffered not only defeat but great umbrage Now Sir Thomas Lipton has issued a challenge and the Herreshoffs promise the syndicate of American millionaires a boat which shall keep the cup in this country for at least one year longer The evolution of American yachting so far as singlestickers are concerned can be seen at a glance from the above sketches Just what the cup defender andchallenger of 1800 will be like no one but Nat Herreshoff and William life can tell Unfortuuately neither of the designers is given to discourse about their plans Neither of the men ever takes the public into his confidence so all that the aver age layman can do is to guess what the new boats will look like From the old America of 1851 down to fin de siecle racing machines like De fender and Valkyrie III is a long step but a careful examination of their hulls and shear plans will show that outside of light construction and the cutting away i of dead wood they are not so very far apart after all At the late British Trades Union Con gress at Bristol there were present 406 delegates representing 188 societies and 1200000 members The Mayor of Bristol warmly welcomed the delegates to the city Mr J OGrady President of the Bristol

Division 2 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians held its social session and open meeting pre viously announced in these columns There was a very large attendance all the divisions in the city being well represented and the number of ladies and gentlemen who responded to the invita tion taxed the seating capacity of the beautiful hall ot the order There was no prearranged programme no one knowing what was to take place other than that it would be a socialses sion and that those called upon were to endeavor to entertain the large number present This delightful uncertainty as to who would appear and what they would do kept everybody in a state of expectancy and proved quite a novelty and change from the usual method of entertaining visitors and members at these meetings Mr William T Meehan President of the division called the assemblage to order and after a few well chosen and interesting remarks introduced Mr John J Barrett and Iris granfophone which furnished a great deal of amusement

brotherly love charity and thought and action His remarks created most favorable im pression Mr Michael Keaney one of the old guard Hibernians sang in the Gaelic or Irish language a song entitled the

326 West preen Street I LOUISVILLE KySATURDAY SEPT 24 1898 MEXICAN WAR VETERANS The gathering of the veterans in our city has been a source of much pleasure to these oldtime warriors Now that t1 shades of evening are drawing close around them and their steps are growing heavy and slow we deligl in seeing them unite at intervals Ito I converse together of the days of long ago It is a time of peculiar interest now that so many of their sons and grandsons have rallied around the flag and are far from the land of their sires fighting fits or honor Noblelooking old men these are and the heroes of man y battles for many of them were not content to have been in the smoke and conflict during the 408 but afterward fought each as seemed right to him during the Civil War They can now rejoice that we are at peace once more and that we may reasonably look for the return of our boys and their fathers to the quiet of their homes and the pursuits r of industry Long may such unions and reunions flourish SOLDIERS BAD TREATMENT There has been a most determined effort on the part of a number i of administration papers to shield the incompetency and care lessness that have existed in connection i with the hospital staff olf the army But the increased number i of soldiers who have bee stricken down and the protests made in all quarters have convincedd the people that the War Department has been guilty of the gross est carelessness Commenting on i the matter the New York Telegraph 1 refers to an appointment made from c that city as follows Is Presidentt c McKinleys oft asserted sympathy c for the common soldiers a bluff andI a dream or did somebody mix the 1 I appointments in the veterinary department of the cavalry corps and the bureau so ably mismanaged I j by Gen Sternberg and his scientific associates This question is perti t nent by reason of the discovery that Dr Huidekoper one of the sur geons in charge of the field hospi tals at Porto Rico is a New York doctor of dogs and horses with an occasional lapse into the rebuilding of the wrecked constitutions of decayed and infirm mules In his particular branch of medical science there is no doubt but Dr Huidekoper is a wise and successful I practitioner He could cause a selling plater to return to his better self as soon as the next man In the hyperbole of the day he might even be stigmatized as a bird But after all aman who can cure the mange in a puppy or can intelligently prescribe the botts in a Hambletonian is not necessarily equipped properly to grapple with the deadly dengue fever and other diseases that make life in the trop ics a problem Yet Dr Huideko per is the physician in charge of the hospitals wherein many hundreds of our heroes abroad are wag ing battle with zymotic maladies and commissary food The two combined are fatal as a rule and it is not understood that Dr Huide Jcoper the horse doctor has reduced the average of deaths The most careful inquiry has resulted in ascertaining that his chief recom mendation for his position was that lie had cured Mrs McKinleys dog of certain ills to which dog flesh is heir chargeYof the hospital service for the First Army Corps which places the Lou of isville Leion at his mercy He r lids had op practice on human beings bt is a strong advocate ofv f E V y f2 horse flesh for food We believe in thatnis possible but not to protest against appointments like the above suchIequacks would result in the destruc tion of our entire army 1tABOUT BRYAN The Boston Republic exhibited the proper spirit in its refutation of the sneers that some of the stayat home journalists have been hurling at William Jennings Bryan From a recent issue we clip the following Mr Bryan went into the volunteer army just as other patriotic

passed The war is over M Bryan who has obligations an duties in civil life should be at once relieved from further military service and sent home An administration with any sense of decency would do this without waiting to have the suggestion made Colh Bryan was two years ago the Demo cratic candidate for President of the United States Over 6500000 free American citizens cast their votes for him He is one of the most conspicuous of the party leaders to day In that capacity he is untie- u obligations to the people for politiit cal advice and guidance He ha positive responsibilities in this ref tion which he can not escape or p aside To compel his further serv iice in the army and thus prevent him from taking any part in the campaign is to say the least cowardly piece of political trickery

have by this time madejj most rapid progress and we may anticipate that the demonstrationI to commemorate Irelands greatt leader will be in every respect c worthy of the occasion says the 1 i Dublin Independent As the yearsI go by the heart of Ireland clingsi jj more devotedly to the memory of Par ell It will never be forgottenI t that to his colossal energy andl genius was due the advance made by the Home Rule cause which would by this time have been crowned with victory but for theii treachery of those who abandoned1 I him in the hour of trial There fore the anniversary of this year will no doubt compare favorably both in numbers sad in its thor oughly representative character with any of its predecessors The cooperation of the various Iris railway1 companies has been secured I j and it has been arranged to run a special train from Belfast on October 6 In connection with the anniversary it will interest Parnell ites generally to learn that Mr 1 John E Redmond has consented to deliver a lecture at the Antient Concert Rooms on the evening ofIJ Ivy Day October 6 on the subject- of Irish Popular Leaders from Swift to Parnell The proceedsd the lecture will be to ward the funds

friendly feeling existing in Ireland with re gard to the race for the American Cup is indicated by the following published in a recent issue of the Irish Weekly Independent Ireland has challenged America and Uncle Sam must defend the American Cup Sir Thomas Lipton will1I build the Shamrock on the newest lines She will be manned by Irish men and is nominated by an Irish club If she should pull off two out of the three events which com prise the struggle for the greatest sailing trophy in the world OldI Ireland will have reason to throw up the cap with a wild hurroo England has failed lamentably to bring back the trophy and Lord Dunravens burst of temper at th last contest and his subsequent ill judged conduct left relations more than strained between British andI American yachtsmen This come ing battle of the boats will be the friendliest fight ever fought out in Yankee waters If we are beaten we go down before better crafts- r men and better sailors if we win Idwe will rejoice in our luck Sir Thomas Lipton is one of the few men of a certain class who did ao become beautifully British when he entered a London drawingroom and put a handle to his name The majority of his order would call his boat the St George run up the burgee of some swell British club andwould throw down the glove toI America in the name of Merrie England thatri President McKinley will act

COCKRANS Glowijiff Tribute to the Memory of the Assassinated Aus trian Empress Says tier Death hats Done Great Good to the Cause of Civ ilization Ami More Harm to Anarchy Than Anything That Ever Happened I MEMORIAL MEETINO IN NEW YORK A memorial meeting for the late Em press of Austria and Queen of Hungary Elizabeth was heM Sunday afternoon iinI the Grand Central Palace New York City It was under the management offr the Hungarian Literary Society andI there was a great outpouring of Hunga rians Fully 2500 people crowded inro the hall which was draped from the gal leries to dome in mourning Behind the stage was a large oil painting of the late Empress on one side of it the flag of Hungary and on the other the Stars an l StripesAfter a dirge by a Hungarian band andl several selections by the Hungarian Sing lug Circle the Chairman of the meeting Morris Cukor addressed the meeting At the conclusion of his remarks Mr Bourke Cockran the celebrated Irish America lawyer was introduced and delivered the following eloquent and glowing tribute o the memory of the Empress Allow me at the very outset to express my thanks to you for this opportunity to address a gathering of Hungarians on thei subject of their martyred Queen I am- a stranger to your language but not t your history and I esteem it an honor t be asked to express my sympathy with you in the loss of your murdered Queen and my reprobation of the crime which has so shocked the world- I think I am in the bounds of pro priety when I say that this awful deed surpasses anything in history for atrocity The agents of violence have made the world familiar with assassination but when the dagger of the assassin is pointed at the Heart of the noblest and gentlest woman in the world we all weep This tragedy came so suddenly was so atrocious so senseless to our percep tion that we can not fathom the motive much less the consequences of the crime The gentle soul of the Empress rebelled at the thought of violence She chose when abroad to trust herself to her fel lows rather than to the paid guards and she has paid a terrible price for her trust in human nature The heart that for sixty years bled for the misery it couldnt relieve bled to death before the dagger o the assassinContemplating it it seems as though civilization was at a standstill Yet closer inspection shows us that anarchy is as powerless as ever and civilization stronger than it was before this crime The Em press died a useful deathas she had lived a useful life We find her stricken to death without excuse or reason in a Swiss villageshe a sovereign the Empress of a great country the Queen of a great nation But it was not as either that we loved her in this country but as a woman that type of womanhood that Americans have made their ideal and who is enshrined in every Americans heart She placed the house of Hapsburg secure on the throne of Hungary by her advice to her imperial husband and in every little act of her life she elevated the standard of womanhood throughout the world The thoughtless say that the loss of such a woman is irreparable It is a sad loss but the manner in which the Em press was taken away has done nore good for civilization and more harm to the sect to which the murderer belonged than anything that has ever happened Her sufferings were nothing compared to what she suffered when her son lay dead at her feet I believe she suffered noth ing from the assassins knife The anarchist I regard as largely the product of the fear of his own agitation i Iniexistence as a organi zation When we catch these assassins andexamine them we find in them not the courage of the fanatic but the petty vanity of the lunatic Civilization is moving along although the anarchist lurks in the byways He will not be in the way though I have never seen the time when he appeared to represent any force By this last criule of his what hash done but to make stronger the mon archy he pretends to fight against The fruits of the Empress example are now being harvested By her death j betterja relic of barbarism The woman who died died a martyr and the bloodof a martyr has always been a useful seed to civilizationThe spectacle of today is the Emperor It is not at the head of his army or at the feet of his paupers that we u recall him now but as a griefstricken- man at the bier of his wife lilt is not joy or splendor that has accompanied great things for the human race but sorrow and suffering and the Empress and Queen stands the strongest influence for peace in Europe today ADVANCED NATIONALISTS Mr T D Sullivan in a recent number of the Nation Dublin made these very interesting remarks as to how English ways and sentiments are being rooted in Ireland We now have Nationalists who

the very embodiment of justice we have them publicly resenting any in fringement of the privileges of the House of Commons we have them clamoring i for the construction of fortifications and Government dockyards on the Irish coasts which would be serviceable for the repelling of foreign invasion we have them begging for training ships to be sent into Irish harbors in order that Irish boys may be gathered in and educated for the English navy we have them complaining if the guardships sent to IrishI waters are not up to a certain standard ofII I ofIindignantly protesting if the Irish

to Jacob Park Their action will meet the hearty approval of all classes of citizens The resolution changing the name of Iroquois Park was introduced by Mayor Weaver The Mayor gave as his reason for the change that the people of the city clung to the name of Jacob Park It was the original name and one dear to them There was no opposition to the change When Mayor Weaver was in tile Board of Aldermen several years ago he introduced a resolution calling what was originally known as Burn Knob Jacob Park The resolution WAS adopted Afterward the Park Commissioners changed the name to Iroquois It remained Iroquois Park in a formal way only but all these years the people knew it as Jacob Park The Park was originally purchased by Mr Charles D Jacob while he was Mayor He bought the ground with his own money for park purposes and when the city got ready to buy it from him he sold it to the city and charged no in terest for the use of his money ELLA FARRELL Her Clothing Catches Fire and She

She sat on the edge of his cot holding his hand and talk ing in llaw happy tones When the surgeon came along on his rounds she ros and half turned The unknown soldier turned on his side and saw her standing there For a moment there could be seen in his eyes the struggle of returning consciousness then a great peace shown on the wasted face Youvfe come strangeer feebly holding arms to her She stood amazed but it was only a moment before the mother heart comprehended Yes dear boy she said softly Ive come Lift me up he said I want tto- go home Youve come to take me home havent you mother She stooped over and kissed him then sat on the edge of the cot and took the emaciated form in her arms He leaned back his eyes closed and he smiled Jut soon he opened his eyes again- I dont believe I can

Midleton Petty Sessions a novel point under the licensing laws arose A publican from Rathcoursey was prosecuted for selling drink On Sunday and four persons were also summoned for being on the

travelers notwithstanding the fact that they had actually only traveled a milethey crossed the Ballinacurra river T in a boat and then traveled to the public house It was submitted for the prosecu

districts are crowded with people and that this is the cause of the periodical distress Tile very opposite is the truth These people riare living in the midst of a beautiful s country from which their predecessors were evicted to make room for cows and sheep If the land now devoted to vast grazing tracts were divided up for agri cultural purposes there would be more than sufficient for the support ofaU a The West is in fact suffering from an- tT I immense economic drain What it wants is that its resources should be economized at home instead of going into the hands of persons who invest them abroad and clearly the best way to do this is to buyout the graziers and put the land and cultivation Great Britain will find i the end that the driving of the land out of cultivation is a most serious thing not merely in Ireland but within her own shores But while it will take many years or even a foreign war to make the evil felt at the other side of the channel1i the moment a few acres go
