The latest plan Is to bavo a qualify

who will meet In the final.
Daly Is to have a metropolitan
handicap tourney at 1&2 balk lino for
amateurs in his room beginning tho
last part of this month. Poggcnbursr,
Gardner, Conway, Gershel and Thomp

to play. No sanction will be askod for
from the X. A. A. B. P. for this tour
ney. Gardner and Conway are at pres
ent on the N. A. A. B. P.'s disqualified
list for having played in a club with
out permission, but it appear that
many of the amateurs are not enam

a wider split between the room keep

Famous Irishman Will Race it
Rules Are Changed.
IKE WILL GUILD TWO YACHTS.
Nine Years Since Last Tussle Be
tween America and England Took
Place Present Rules Are Unfair to
Foreign Contenders, He Says.
Sir Thomas Upton, who has again
challenged America to nice for the in
ternational cup, says:
"I have n feeling thnt the New York
Yacht club will meet mo in regard to
the racing rules. No man can possibly
win the cup under the old conditions.
If tho New York Yacht club ndhercs to
Ihe old rules it might as well bury
(he cup. If my challenge Is accepted I
shall build two yachts. Fyfo probably
will be the designer of one, nnd the
other will bo designed by tho best pos
sible man in Kngland.
"These two boata will race, and tho
better of the two will cross the Atlan
tic as the challenger."
So far as any disinterested yachta
man knows, there Is not the slightest
reason why the New York Yacht club
should not chnnge its rules and give
1 011 xuuuiua ijipiuu uuuiiier cimuce w
lire tne cup unless it De mat tne pow
ers In tho club do not wish to race for
the cup or, for some reason known only
to themselves, object to the challenger.
It is now nine years since the last
race was sailed, and owing to the ob
jections which foreign yachtsmen make
to the present rules it is doubtful if
another race will be sailed until they
These rules could bo nltered under
the so called "mutual agreement
clause" if tho New York Yacht club
should be willing, but it insists that
foreign challengers must race under
the old rules or not at all.

required that all of the yacht's dimen
sions should be given ten months in
udvanco of u race. All this has been
done away with. Other changes In
the interest of sport nnd fair play
could be made if tho New York Yacht
club was willing.
The present cup rules are, briefly,
"length, plus the square root of the
sail area, divided by two." This en
ables Herreshoff or any other de
signer who has tho genius or skill to
build a boat like the Reliance, which
measures ninety feet on tho water
line at anchor, but which when
heeled in n breeze increases her water
lino length to 125 or 130 feet. It Is
this extra length, which she does
not show under tho rules, that enables
her to carry 10,000 square feet of
Sir Thomas Upton, who has raced
for tho cup three times, would liko to
challcngo again, but says under no
circumstances will ho raco for tho
cup under tho old rules. Ho Is eager
to race under what Is known ns tho
"universal rule." Tho universal rule
Is "18 per cent of tho product of length
multiplied by tho squaro root of ttio
sail area, divided by tho cube root of
the displacement." This means thqt a
premium Is put on displacement nnd a
penalty Is put on over nil length nnd
