Second: The New York Yacht club shall designate the size of the yacht it, considers the most suitable for the race.. Sir Thomas when seen by the Asso- ciated Press at Dunoon Scotland to- day, said that the Field's statement was perfectly correct and he added: "I hope my American friends will see their way clear to meet my wishes in the nf sport. The size of the boat is no objection and I am willing to build under the uni- versal rule. When I get assurance that a challenge will be accepted I will issue it forthwith." It is understood the intention of Sir Thomas with the New York Yacht club's permission, is to build two yachts of a design by that club after designs by Fife and select type better to compete for the cup. New York, June report cir- culated today states that the New York Yacht club has announced thjat it is ready to accept a challenge from Sir Thomas Lipton, for a yacht race for the America's cup under the new rules governing the building and measuring of the racing crtaft. At the New York Yacht club it was denied that any such made. decision has been DISCUSS LAND BILL Progress Being Made with Legisla- tion at Ottawa Ottawa, June 29. The Commons today stuck closely to business and as a result excellent progress was made in two of the most important bills of the session, viz., The West- ern Land Bill and the Civil Service bill. The former bill was all but put through the committee stage only three clauses out of the 103, re- maining over for final consideration. These clauses relate principally to the area to which the pre-emption pro- vision shall apply. Messrs.

Skimmerhom of this city is authority for the statement that- she was once the sweetheart of William Howard Taft, and still thinks of him with considerable tenderness. When, interviewed last evening she blushed modestly at the soft impeachment, and asserted that it was true. "We had quite an affair when we were in grammar school together. Willie was ten years old. Nothing serious ever came of it because I thought there was a great disparity in our ages, and papa thought it was not -wise for us to wed." Miss de Skimmer- horn did not wish to tell her 'age, but she 'looks it whatever it may be. She was becomingly costumed in a sheath gown. Bird Jas. J. Figgitt, instructor in elocution at the deaf and dumb asylum in this city tells an. amusing story about the republican nominee for president. "One day, as I was waiting for a car in Cincinnati, a manly little chap came up, and, seeing that I was tired of waiting, offered to help me. I thanked him in courteous terms and inrtiiireri his nnme. said .he. modestly. 'Some day you will be a great said I, 'a governor gen- eral of some foreign possessions, or a secretary of war, or perhaps even a president of the United States." He thanked me and said he would -run home and tell his mother. I had completely forgotten the incident, un- til I saw his picture the other day and recognized in Mr. Taft the little boy who helped me wait for the street car. Ananias Hector Prute, Esq., of this a prominent fisherman, not to use a shorter and uglier word. He is the well known author of more uncorrob- orateoU-stories than any other man now living. He tells the following story: Forty years ago while he was fishing one day he succeeded landing a large fish. He was about to add it to his string when to his great astonishment the fish, began to speak. "Will you let me go if I tell "you who is to be president in Mr. Prute was almost too surprised to answer. It was the first time had ever heard a fish speak. Never- theless, he agreed that he would lib- erate the fish if the latter gave him the information. "William Howard said the fish, and, in. accord- ance with the terms of his promise, Mr. Prute tossed the fish back into the water. It is a singular fact that the fish in question was the largest that vras ever caught in this part, of the countrv. sion of certain Manitoba townships j in the scope of the bill. The discus- sion throughout the day was calm and the tone of the Opposition re-j versing the policy of the past few j months, showed ;a desire to discuss the measures on their merit and es- chew political pyrotechnics.
