British Boat Will Not Be Given a Another Trial Until a New 1 Mainsail Has Replaced the Present One. Southampton, May 15. Designer Watson has reached the conclusions that the hull of Shamrock II. is susceptible to improvement and there is reason to believe that an alteration is about to be made amounting to practical remodelling of portions of the boat. A gang of platers and riveters was summoned from Dumbarton and will work day and night uutil the alterations are completed. Mr. Watsoto admits that the Shamrock II eame here for the purpose of be-iag dry docked. He does net say whether he expects to Cud her damaged by grounding on Deaa bank last week. Ht said that his future program was indefinite, but that future trials had been arranged lor, and that be expected to have the challenger out of dry dock In a day or two.

Washington, May 15. It has been tentatively decided' that the United States government will conduct a lottery on a large scale. It is proposed to distribute the Kiowa and ether Indian lands in Oklahoma, which will son be opened to settlement, by lot. The custom has been for those desiring to secure land to get on the borders of the territory and at a given signal engage 1. a grand rush. But a comparatively limited number can obtain land, and those bavrog the. swiftest horses are usually the fortunate ones. A large percentage endure all (he preliminary hardships and Becure n.thlng. - Thousands of letters have been received at the Interior department regarding the opening of the Oklahoma Indian lands to settlement. These communications Indicate that a great majority favor the proposition to distribute the lands by lot. A clergyman is among those Indorsing this plan. He considers the plan preferable to a horse ' race, and justifies his views by the precedent established when Canaan was distributed among the Israelites by lot. ' He also refers to other instances in the Bible where the easting of lota was considered as just and equitable. i Judge Van Deventer, assistant attor ney general for the interior department, believes the distribution of the new homesteads by lot would be satisfactory and avoid eonfusion and scramble. He has assembled a number of precedents in which decision or selectiou by lot 1 recognized by high authority. " These include the United States Sen ate, where the Senators from a newly admitted State have .. the duration of their terms fixed by lot ; the House of ' Representatives, where seats are allotted Id this utauner; the constitutions . of Ohio, Missouri, Colorado and Arkansas provide that justices of the State su preme court when first elected shall determine their terras and designate a chief justice by lot; a tie vote to Massachusetts was recently decided ia this way. ,t LAW AGAINST BRIBERY. It is Wrong to Hire a Man Not to Vote? Washington, May 15. Tho . consti tutionality of the law which provides punishment for , "every person who by means it bribery prevents another from exercisiug the right of suffrage, to whom that right is guaranteed by the fifteenth amendment' to the constitution," Is involved iti a petition filed In the supreme court of the United State? by the sol icitor-general. He asks the court to review the judg ment of the circuit court of appeals in the case of the Uuited States against Charles K. Lackey, indicted in K' n-tucky for bribing colored voters to re main away from the polls at a State election, in whic h that court held that the law was unconstitutional, because it was not ''limited in its operation to Cou- ; gressional or Presidential elections, nor : to offence grounded upon race, color or previous coudition of servitude." The law, the solicitor-general con tends, ,, was designed to make elective the fifteenth amendment, by preventing discrimination against colored voters in either State or national elections, and If the decision of the court of appeals were allowed to stand the statute would be abrogated, as the government, being barred from hereafter again bringing the constitutional qnestion before the su preme courtfaud any subsequent Indict aients under the seotion, would be thrown out op demurrer. No statute of such importance, he submits, should be nullified except by judgment of the highest court. The petition was takei under advisemeut. VILLAGE DESTROYED. Roue, May 15.
