Tinplate  Manufacturers   Defy  Th    at of
American Steel Trust to Ruin
Their Business.
I^ondnn. Jan. 7.���An extraordinary
story affecting nrltish Industries and
abOdding a Hood or llRht on (Tie ethics
and tactics of American protectionists.
Is told in the current iHsue of the Ironmonger. It is notorious that the Iron
and steel trade In the I'tiited States lias
been severely affected by tho financial
crisis that is passing over that country.
Anxious to find a sale for its products
abroad lo compensate for the dwindling
demand in their home market, the
���United States Steel Corporation has
-cut steel emissaries lo this and other
countries. That is a natural proceeding.
Hut the precise action taken In this
country by the trust emissaries is without precedent In the history of international trade. The Americans are perfectly free to sell their steel In the British market under the ordinary conditions of trade. Not content with this.
these emissaries have threatened some
of the Bngllah manulactureri that unless they buy steel trom the I'nited
Slates Steel Corporation at specified
prices the latter will take Steps to compass their ruin. This may seem in-
01 edible, hut it is vouched ror by a
reputable paper like the Ironmonger,
which prints the following:
"The American Steel Trust has put
a [dstol to the heads or the Welsh tin-
plate manufacturers. During thi* last
Tew months the greal bulk of our supplies of Imported bars have coxno��from
Prance and Belgium, but now the two
bis trusts, (Je ini a n and American, are
in ihe Held for business. The Americans have made no bones about it at
all, for they are face to face now with
the Welsh consumers���I.e.. the tin-
i ie manufacturers and their ultimatum to litem is "Klthcr buy our bars
or be smashed. II you do not huy our
burs we will turn them Into tinplate
ourselves, and cut the ground From under your feet In every market in which
you do business" Th<' ultimatum, we
understand) was delivered verbally a
lew days ago, and in order to discus!
the position vMch has t nis arisen a
meeting of the \v s sh tinp3 ite trade was
bold  at  Ba anst a
' Tha demand or the Tailed Status
Steel Corporation was ihat the SSSO-
Olated makers should purchase not less
than three thousand tons monthly of
American steel liars from the trust at
a  premium on  today's  market   price"
To their credit he it said the Welsh
manufacturers refused to be coerced,
and Ihe emissaries of (he t rust found
their  threnla  of no avail.     It   is under-
siood thai    the    trust representatives
thereupon  proceeded  to Germany  in  the
bops of arriving at a common understanding  with   the (leiinan steel syndi

SENSATION  IN  LISBON.
Finding   of   Infant   Reveals   Scandal
Portugese  Capital.
Purls, Jan. 7���A despatch from Lisbon says that a remarkable scnndal has
arisen in the highest society there, following a discoverv recently made by
fishermen on the seashore near the city.
Tbo men were going to their work at
an early hour, when they heard a feeble
cry which seemed to come from the
ground beneath their (eet. Being superstitious they were about to llee from
the spot, when suddenly one of them
came upon the cause of the sound. It
was a baby two months old, partially
buried in the sand. The little one was
taken to the nearest police station, and
Inquiries were instituted which led to
the discovery of a domestic drama In
the  highest   Portugese  society.
The mother of the child is well known
and during the absence of her husband
on service ln the Portugese African colonies, she had hecoome entangled in a
love intrigue. When she heard or her
husband's impending return sbe set to
work to hide her disgrace. Whether
she personally deposited the child in
the sand is not known, but the affair
has caused a great sensation In spite of
the efforts of her relatives, who are in-
Iluentlaily connected*, to hush the matter up.
LEAVES FOR PRINCIPLE
North Carolina Millionaire Will Not Live
in Prohibition Area���Gives Away
His   Property.
Ashvllle, N. C. Jan. 7.���John A. Roeb-
Ung. multi-millionaire and son of Col.
Washington ElOObUngaf Brooklyn Bridge
fame, owner of "Beaux Chiens," a half-
million dollar countrv estate on St.
Dumstan's road, between Ashville and
Baltimore, has deeded over his entire
property to the Home Mission Board of
the Northern Presbyterian ohurch, and
will return shortly to his home in Trenton. N. J. Mr. Roebling says he is leaving because Ashville has gone for prohibition. Mr, Roebling says thut there
is no persona] motive in his going away
and abandoning a magnificent mansion
which he has had under construction
for three years and which would take
ten years to complete.
^It is just a matter of principle with
me," he stated. " on account of prohibition, which I oppose from principle."
Ho has been a resident here ror ten
years. He has been the largest individual taxpayer, except George Vanderbilt. and has paid the city $10,001) taxes
besides a heavy stale and county tax.
He has been noted for his philanthropy,
com ri but ing thousands every year to
charity. Bast winter when a large posse
was hunting for a negro who killed tive
persons, Roebling carried a thousand-
dollar Mauser rifle and searched night
and day with the posse until the follow
wus found and shot.
During the recent prohibition campaign In Ashville Mr. Roebling wus one
of the most prominent leaders against
it. He not only contributed large sums
toward it, hut gave much of his time to-
wurd carrying on a hard fight against
the temperance crusade. He made public speeches all during the campaign.
On ihe day of the election the school
children of the city's schools who had
turned out en masse endeavored to keep
Mr. Id-elding from voting by crowding
around him. In the struggle his overcoat was torn off. He took this good
naturedly and says there Is absolutely
nothing personal aboul his leaving, "only principle."

N8 ATTACK ON BRITAIN
Authoritative   Denial   of   Reported
Speech Urging Incitement of India to Revolt.
Tokio, Jan. 7.���A remarkable situation baB arisen as a result or the pub-
Ueatioon in London of a mistranslation
of the speech delivered by Count Oku-
nia at Kobe. Little attention was paid
the address at the trme of its delivery
b( cause Count Okutna in previous
speeches on this same subject, had
made his views well known. It is
quite evident that words were put into
his mouth which he did not use and he
promptly repudiated the published version. This was In substance that he
had urged India to rise against Great
Britain.
Now Count Okutna and the foreign
office are being bombarded with cablegrams or inquiry irom Paris, Berlin. St.
Pelresburg and London, asking the
Count to pubncly repudiate or confirm
the report, and In reply Count Okuma
said tnday:
"In my speech I did not use the
words that were put into my mou'h. It
is apparent that a mistranslation of the
remarks has just reached England. My
views on the subject of trade with India, as well as my friendliness to Great
Britain, are too well known to make it
necessary for me to publicly repudiate
the absurd construction which has heen
placed upon the remnrks I made at
Kobe. I ha\e never entertained a
thought which could be stretched into
such a meaning. India offers a fine
field for trade and I urge my people
Openly to enter that field in fair competition with friendly Great Britain. That
is all."
FARCE   REPEATED.
Fishing   for  Jurymen   for   Thaw���Theft
Reported  in Court.
New York, Jan. 7.���Wiih nine tentative jurors in the box, all being subject
to peremptory challenge, and with a new
panel of 100 talesmen to draw from, the
Thaw trial was resumed at 10.22 a. m.
today. Not more than two or three of
these nine Jurors are expected to remain. Kach side has the right to exercise thirty peremptory challenges.
Thaw was not called to the bar until
the roll of the new panel was called
and the absentees noted and fined $250.
This required nearly 20  minutes.
Eight members ot the new panel were
present. Mrs. Evelyn Thaw was not in
the court room when the -proceedings
began, Josiah Thaw being the only relative In the line of chairs reserved for
defendant's family. As soon us Thaw
had taken his place the work of filling
the jury box was taken up wilh District

10. Roberts declared he hail an Impression as to the guilt or innocence of th*.
defendants but it. was not a very decided one und he was sure he could lay It
aside.
Two of the provisional jurors selected
were excused by consent shortly before
the morning session ended, leaving
eight men in the box.
New York, Jan. 7.���With nine jury mon
provisionally selected, LOO new   venire
men reported to Justice Howling In thi
criminal branch of the supreme court
this morning for duty in the case ol
the State vs. Harry K. Thaw who is
charged with the wilful murder of Stanford White. While there were nine
jury men in the box this morning then-
is no certainty that there will be even
lhat many when court adjourns tonight.
The nine* men have heen passed foi

trial of Harry Thaw were excused by
consent of the prosocu��on and defense
just before the close of the morning
session today. They were James Conway, a hotel keeper, as No. f>, and Win.
Hrower, decorator, as .No. 6. This action occasioned no surprise for It Is

���Jk ' al jurors were secured at the
horning session leaving at the time of
the one o'clock recess nine remaining
temporarily in the box. The work of the
jury selection progressed slowly. The
first penal of one hundred talesmen were
exhausted today and the new panel of
one hundred which reported this morning, was heavily drawn upon. Admittance to the trial again was restricted
and there were many vancant seats'.
One of the tentative jurors in the box
created something of a sensation as the
forenoon session opened by announcing
that he had lost his gold watch and
chain valued at $150 since coming into
court. Detectives were assigned to the
case.

REFUSED BYCONSIGNEES
Peculiar   Misunderstanding   Over  Shipment of Canadian   Wheat to
Liverpool.
Ottawa, Jan. 7.���Enquiry at the trade
and commerce department has revealed
the interesting story on the despatch
from London announcing a Liverpool
firm had refused to accept western
grain consigned hy a firm of grain dealers in Toronto. Under the grain Inspection act, it was explained that the grade
was known as 'feed wheat" taking In all
qualities below ordinary milling grades.
The crop of 1907, however, included
such a large quantity of feed wheat
varying from the standard which was
established, as fixed by statute, thnt
at. the solicitation of western interests,
a still lower grade as authorized by the
standard hoard to be designated Feed
.No.  2.
This made two grades. "Feed." and
"Feed No. 2." The firm in Toronto.
Malady & Co., made a contract with a
Liverpool firm for the delivery of a
large   quantity   of   "Feed"   wheat   No.l.
When the wheat was delivered in Liverpool, accompanied by the certificates
showing it to he "feed" wheat, the
firm insisted that It was not up to the
contract and refused acceptance. The
Toronto firm in vain explained that
there was no such gra'e and never had
been. The consignees were inexorable.
Then Malady & Co. applied to the department for certificates, but as the
standards are fixed by a board, and as
some two million bushels hud already
gone forward under the regular grading the request was not accede to, it
being felt that a chnnge under the circumstances might shake the confidence
of the  Canadian certificates.
As a compromise, however, the chief
inspector at Winnipeg was authorized
to attach a certificate that the consignment was the highest and best "feed"
wheat of the crop of 1907.
The matter Is now being dealt with
by the  Liverpool corn exchange.
An interesting Incident of the dispute
Is that a considerable drop in the price of
feed wheat occurred between the placing of the order and the delivery of
the grain at Liverpool.

IS SAFEJN PORT
Steamer Mount Royal io
Queenstown Harbor
BEATEN BACK BY GALES
Left Artwerp For St. John Four
Weeks Ago���Defective Boilers
Prevented Crossing.
Queenstown, Jan. 7.���The overdue
steamer Mount Royal, of the Canadian
Pacific line, which was bound to SL
John, N. B., from London and Antwerp
with about four hundred people aboard
was sighted off Old Head of Klnsaie, 16
miles west of this port, today, just one
month after her departure form Antwerp. The vessel proceeded slow'Iy under her own steam and signalled that
she was making for this port. She
made no signals Indicating what had
been the cause of her delay and return.
Queenstown, Jan. 7.���The long overdue steamer Mount Royal steamed slowly into Queenstown today and the news
of her safety was received with gladness in shipping circles. She had not
been heard from In many days, having
heen last reported off Lizzard December
10, -and watch was being kept for her
on both sides of the Atlantic as far
south as Bermuda. The Mount Royal
belongs to the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company's Atlantic service. She left
Antwerp December 7 for St. John, N. B-,
with 300 Bulgarian emigrants and a
crew of about 100 men. She was first
definitely .-sighted off Old Head of Kin-
sale. 16 miles west of this port, early
today. She was then proceeding slowly under ber own steam aud signalled
that she was coming in here. She
declined the help of a tug that was sent
out to assist her and came In at once.   m
The Mount Royal had trouble with
her boilers and was compelled to put
back. Shortly after leaving the British coast she encountered a series of
gules. She combatted with heavy weather for a fortnight until Christmas Eve,
when serious trouble with her boilers
developed. The steamer was then In
longtltude 24.50 and latitude 45 north.
The engine room staff ultimately succeeded in obtaining a moderate supply
of steam but the weather was such
that the captain reluctantly decided
there was nothing to do but to make for
the Irish coast. The steamer was headed about and steamed slowly into port.
Passengers and crew are all well.
Brutal Crown Prince.
Vienna, Jan. 7.���Fresh charges of outrages conduct are being brought against
the Servian crown prince, according to
the latest news from Belgurdc. Some
days ago, it is stated, the prince visited
a carpenter's shop in order to make
inquiries about his motor boat, which
was undergoing repair. The master of
the shop was absent, asd as the information volunteered by assistants did
not satisfy the crown prince he abused
and beat them. As a further instance
of the crown prince's brutality it is related that recently, wUhout apparent
cause he belabored two footmen with a
hammer, one of them being very seriously  injured.
Prussian Loan.
Berlin, Jan. 7.���The petition of the
Prussian ministry In announcing that it
will issue susscrlptions on January 14
on a new loan on which the amount is
not named but ls assumed to be In the
neighborhood of $75,000,000, Is exciting
much unfavorable comment In financial
circles. Many regard the time as unfortunate before the money market is
sufficiently   relaxed.
Aoki Off for Home.
San Francisco, Jan. 7.���Japanese Ambassador Aoki spent the last ilay in America visiting some of his countrymen,
and last night he received many friends
In his suite at the Fairmount hotel. Admittance was denied to all newspaper
men. Viscount Aoki will leave for Japan on the Mauchurian which sails today at one o'clock.

Wrong   Bundle.
A prominent citizen of Nelson who always responds to appeals for charity
has suffered a loss. Some time ago an
appeal was made for clothing for a few
poor families who found themselves in
straitened circumstances and facing the
winter. A bundle was Immediately made
up in the home of tlie gentleman referred to and was placed on a back verand-
dah to be called for. So was the family
laundry. The collector for charity arrived first and took the wrong bundle.
When the owner, surprised at the nonreturn of his laundry, made inquiries he
learned that it had been distributed to
the needy.

TO SWEEP CLEAN
AMENESTY  TO   AU8TRIANS.
Franz Josef    Begins    Sixtieth    Year  of
Reign With Act of Mercy.
Washington, Jan. 7.���The Austro-
IfuiiKarian emhasay in Washington has
received an official communication with
regard to the amnesty decided upon by
Franc's Joseph, Ktnperor or Austria -and
King of Hungary, in the beg-Uinlng of
thr sixtieth year of his relgn. This is
extended to all citizens of Austro-Hun-
garfa and Bosnia llerzoLrovina who being
under mili'ary ohliKations have heen de-
clated deserters on account of non *.b-
seivance of enroJlrm nt call. It has bo
effect, however, on those who have prac-
tically deserted the army or navy while
pei forming active military duty. For
the latter special appeals for clemency
can be recommended in order to give
hotter protection in case of arrest and
as a means of identification, the Austro
Hungarian consular offices in the I'nlt-
��� d .states win issue documents of Identification to those who wish to profit by
tiiis amnesty.

Tinplate  Manufacturers  Defy Th    at of
American Steel Trust to Ruin
Their Business.
London. Jan. 7.���An extraordlnary
story affecting British Industres and
bheddlng a flood of light on lhe ethics
and tactics of American protectionists.
ll told in the current issue of the Ironmonger. It is notorious that the Iron
and steel trade in the I'nited States has
been severely affected hy the financial
crisis that Is passing over that country.
Anxious ba find a sale for Its products
abroad to compensate for the dwindling
demand in their home market, the
I'nited States Steel Corporation has
sent steel emissaries to this and other
countries. That i�� a natural proceeding
Bttl the precise action taken in this
country by the trust emissaries is without precedent in the history of International trade. The Americans are perfectly free to sell their steel In the Hritish market tinder the ordinary conditions of trade. Not content with this,
these emissaries have threatened some
of the Knglish manufacturers that unless they huy steel Irom the United
States Steel Corporation al specified
prices the latter will lake steps to compass their ruin. This may seem in-
eiedihle, hut p is vouched for by a
reputable paper like the Ironmonger,
which prints the h.Mowing:
"Ths American Steel Trust has put
8 pistol to the heads of the Welsh tin-
plate manufact urers. During the last
few months thi meat balk of our supplies of Imported bars ha.e eome.from
Franco and Belgium, but now the two

all. lor they are face to face now wiih
the Welsh consumers���i.e., ihe folate manufacturers���and their ultl*
in..uiiii to tli* tn i.s "Kither buy our bars
u Ik smashed. If you do not buy our
bars we will turn them into tinplate
ourselves, und cut the ground from Under your feel in every market in which
wm do business." The ultimatum, we
understand, was delivered verbally a
few days ago, and In order to d
lhe position v hlch has t nis arisen a
meeting of the We ah ttap Lte trade was
held at Swans* a
"The demand of the United Stales
Meei Corporation was that the associated makers should purchase not less
Mian three thousand tons monthly of
A tn Sl lean steel bars from tljje trust at

To their credit be it said the Welsh
inatiuf'acl urers refused to he 00*81 COd,
and the emissaries of the trust found
their threats of DO uvall. It is understood that the trust representatives
thereupon proceeded to (hrmtniy in tin

arisen In the highest society there, following a discovery recen'ly made by
fishermen on the seashore near the city.
lbs.* men were going to their work at

cry which seemed to cdme fiom the
ground beneath their- feet. Being superstitious they were about to flee from
tin* spot, when suddenly one of them
came upon the cause of the sound. It
was a baby two months old, partially

LEAVES FOR PRINCIPLE
North Carolina Millionaire Will Not Live
in  Prohibition  Area���Gives  Away
His   Property.
Ashville, N. C. Jan. 7.���John A. Roob
ling, multi-millionaire and son of Col.
Wash'ngton Roebling of Brooklyn Bridge
fame, owner of "Beaux Chiens," a half-
million dollar country estate on St.
Dims tan's road, between Ashville and
Baltimore, has deeded over his entire
property to the Home Mission Board of
tbe Vol thern Presbyterijui ohurch, and
will return shortly to his borne in Trenton. N\ J. Mr. Roebling says he is leaving because Ashville has gone for prohibition. Mr. Roebling says that there
is no personal motive in bis going away
and abandoning a magnificent mansion
v.hich he has had under construction
for three years and which would take
ten years to complete.
lit is Just a matter of principle with
me." he stated. " on account of prohibition, which I oppose from principle."
He has been a resident here for ten
years. He has been the largest individual taxpayer, except George Vanderbilt. and has paid the city 910,000 taxes
besides a heavy state and county tax.
He has been noted for his philanthropy,
conirihuting thousands every year to
charity. Last winter when a large posse
was hunting for a negro who killed five
persons, Roebling carried a thousand-
dollar Mauser rifle and searched night
and day with the posse until the fellow
was found and shot.
During the recent prohibition campaign in Ashville Mr. Roebling was one
of the most prominent leaders against
it. He not only contributed large sums
toward it, but gave much of his time toward carrying on a hard fight against
the temperance crusade. He made public speeches all during the campaign.
On the day of the election the school
children of the city's schools who had
turned out en masse endeavored to keep
Mr. Roebling from voting by crowding
.���round him. ln the struggle his overcoat was torn oiT. He took this good
natnredly and says there is absolutely
nothing personal about his leaving, "only principle."

NO ATTACK ON BRITAIN
Authoritative   Denial   of   Resporled
Speech Urging Incitement of India to Revolt.
Tokio, Jan. 7.���A remarkable situation has arisen as a result of the pub-
licatioon in London of a mistranslation
of the s]w��ech delivered by Count Okuma at Kobe, Little attention was paid
the address at the time of its delivery
because Count Okuma in .previous
spot, ches on this same subject bad
made his views well known. It is
quite evident that words were put into
his mouth which he did not use and he
promptly repudiated tbe published version. This was In subs-tance that he
bad urged India to rise against Great
Britain.
Now Count Okuma and the foreign
office are being bombarded with cablegrams of inquiry from Paris, Berlin. St.
I'elresburg and London, asking the
Count to pubncly repudiate or confirm
the report, and in reply Count Okuma
said today:
"In my speech I did not use the
words that were put into my mouth. It
is apparent that a mistranslation of the
lemarks has just reached Kngiand. My
views on the subject of trade with India, as well as my friendliness to Great
Britain, are too well known to make it
necessary for me to publicly repudiate
the absurd construction which has been
placed upon the remarks I made at
Kobe. I have never entertained a
thought which could be stretched into
such a meaning. India otTers a fine
field Tor trade and I urge my people
openly to enter that field In fair competition with friendly Great Britain. That
Is all."

Fishing   for Jurymen  for  Thaw���Theft
Reported in Court.
New York, Jan. 7.���With nine tentative jurors fn the box, all being subject
to peremptory challenge, and with a new
penel of 100 talesmen to draw from, the
Thaw trial was resumed at 10.22 a. m.
today. Not more than two or three of
these nine jurors are expected to remain. Each side has the right to exercise thirty  peremptory challenges.
Thaw was not called to the bar until
the roll of the new panel was called
and the absentees noted and fined $200.
This required nearly 20 minutes.
Fight members ot the new panel were
present. Mrs. Evelyn Thaw was not in
the court room when the -proceedings
began, Josiah Thaw belug the only relative in the line of chairs reserved for
defendant's family. As soon as Thaw
had taken his place the work of filling
the jury box was taken up with District
Attorney Jerome again conducting the
examination for the state.
Mr. Littleton is Inclined lo be very
thorough in his examination. He spsnl
nearly half an hour on William II. Rob

who finally was accepted as Juror No.
LO. Roberts declared he had an tmprcs

REFUSED BUONSIGNEES
Peculiar   Misunderstanding   Over   Shipment of  Canadian  Wheat to
Liverpool.
Ottawa, Jan. 7.���Enquiry at the trade
and commerce department has revealed
the interesting story on the despatch
from tendon announcing a Liverpool
fIrm bad refased to accept western
grain consigned by a firm of grain dealers in Toronto. T'nder the grain Inspection act, it was explained that the grade
was known as "feed wheat" taking In all
qualities below ordinary milling grades.
The crop of 1907, however, included
such a large quantity of feed wheat
varying from the standard which was
established, as fixed by statute, that
at the solicitation of western interests,
a still lower grade as authorized by the
standard board +d be designated Feed
No. 2.
This made two grades, "Feed," and
"Feed No. 2." The firm in Toronto.
Malady & Co., made a contract with a
Liverpool firm for the delivery of a
large   quantity  of  "Feed"   wheat   No.l.
When the wheat was delivered in Liverpool, accompanied by the certificates
showing it to be "feed" wheat, the
firm insisted that It was not up to the
contract and refused acceptance. The
Toronto firm in vain explained that
there was no such grn le and never had
been. The consignees were inexorable.
Then Malady -_ Co. applied to the department for certificates, but as the
standards are fixed by a board, and as
some tw*o million bushels had already
gone forward under the regular grading the request was not accede to, it
being felt that a change under the circumstances might shake the confidence
of the Canadian certificates.
As a compromise, however, the chief
inspector at Winnipeg was authorized
to attach a certificate that the consignment was the highest and best "feed"
wheat of the crop of 1907.
The matter is now being dealt with
by  the  Liverpool corn exchange.
An interesting incident of the dispute
is that a considerable drop In the price of
feed wheat occurred between the placing of the order and the delivery of
the grain at Liverpool.

Queenstown, Jan. 7.���The overdue
steamer Mount Royal, of the Canadian
Pacific line, which was hound to St.
John, N. B., from London and Antwerp
with about four hundred people aboard
was sighted off Old Head of Kinsaie, 16
miles west of this port, today, just one
month after her departure form Antwerp. The vessel proceeded slowly under her own steam and signalled that
she was making for this port. She
made no signals indicating what had
been the cause of her delay and return.
Queenstown, Jan. 7.���The long overdue steamer Mount Royal steamed slowly into Queenstown today and the news
of her safety was received with gladness in shipping circles. She had not
been heard fiom In many days, having
been last reported off Lfzzard December
lo.-and watch was being kept for ber
on both sides of the Atlantic as far
souih as Bermuda. The Mount Royal
belongs to the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company's Atlantic service. She left
Antwerp December 7 for St. John, N. B..
with 300 Bulgarian emigrants and a
crew of about 100 men. She waa first
definitely sighted off Old Head of Kin-
sale. 16 miles west of this port, early
today. She was then proceeding slowly under her own steam ai.d signalled
that she wars coming In here. She
declined the help of a tug that was sent
.out to assist her and came In at once.
The Mount Royal had trouble with*
her boilers and was competed to put
back. Shortly after leaving the British coast she encountered a series of
gales. She combatted with heavy weather for a fortnight until Christmas Eve,
when serious trouble with her boilers
developed. The steamer was then in
longtitude 24.50 and latitude 45 north.
The engine room staff ultimately succeeded In obtaining a moderate supply
of steam but the weather was such
that the captain reluctantly decided
there was nothing to do but to make for
the Irish coast. The steamer was headed about and steamed slowly Into port.
Passengers and crew are all well.
Brutal Crown Prince.
Vienna. Jan. 7.���Fresh charges of outrages conduct are being brought against
the Servian crown prince, according to
the latest news from Belgarde. Some
days ago, it is stated, the prince visited

inquiries about his motor boat, which
was undergoing repair. The master of
the shop was absent, asd as the information volunteered by assistants did

cause he belabored two footmen with s,
hammer, one ot them being very seriously  injured.

OKUMA'S   SPEECH.
Tho correction of the false report oi
the speech delivered by Count Okuma
to the members ol the chamber of commerce at Kobe hu.s come npne tun -soon.
If the words attributed tu him which
have been the subject of startled cum
meat in London, Paris, Berlin ami Wash
Ington, had reallj been uttered by a
Japanese statesman of Count Okuma's
eminence and authority, their lift port
ance could hardly have b.en overestimated,
And yet lt seemed incriedible thai
any Japanese patrioi wlili thr leasl
knowledge of tiie history of the lasi
fifteen year.1* could recommend au at
tack on Britain, .lapan was robbed ol
the legitimate fruits oi her victory ovei
China in _,..;l bj a combination ol
Bhiropean powers whose fleets made ;>
threatening demonstratloon in the Pad
lie. With a calmness and patience in
less wonderful than the courage aim
conlidence that marked the beginning
of her last war with Russia, Japan swal
lowed the affront The lesson was learn
ed. Japan had two things to do���to
build a navy and to find a friend. Six
has done both. Every man in Japan
knows  thai   foreign   intervention nftet
the collapse of Russia's land and BBS
forces was precluded only by the know
ledge that Britain was Japan's ally ami
that, if need were, the whole British
navy would stand between Japan and
any officious friend of Russia.
There Is no ground for the belief that
the Japanese as a people are less mag
nanimoiiH or less grateful than othei
peoples. The friendship of Great Ilrlt
aln Is probably appreciated hy everj
man iu Japan. It the Sun Rise Empire':
people dreamed of universal conquest
the nation Its people would least wis!
to attack would be the liritish.
<. omineiii   on  the  mischief  thai   ma;.
he wrought h\ such reports as thai from
Kobe a ii-.\ days ago would be idle.
Happily the extreme Improbability of
the statements would lead all well-informed people to suspend judgment till
the report was confirmed or repudiated.
But, behind the folly ot" such a report
and the panic It caused in the world's
Chief capitals, there it: material for serious thought. Japan is probably as punctilious as any European power in the
observance of treaties and in loyalty to
national alliances in the Hpirit as well as
in the letter. Hut there is undoubtedly
iu the hearts of thf Japanese a dee):
seated feeling of resentment againsi the
white races. lt would be strange if
there were not. The nation was startled inn. modern life by the shock of an
allium Irom an American commodore
whleh at the time they were powerless
to resent. Since then they have seen
their great, helpless neighbor oppressed
and robbed by Russia and Germany and
threatened with division amoug foreign
powers. As their interest has expanded
trom the shores of the China and Japan
Beafl they have perceived that through-
���qut Ihi- world the European white race
is triumphant over Mack, Brown, Yel-
ow and Red and urn-gales the lordship
Of lhe earth. Except tor lhe defeat of the
Italian armies in Abyssinia, the Japanese
Victory was the first shock to the white
race since the days of Turkish and
Moorish conquests. How fur the Japan
ese will he led by sentiment loward as-
.-I'lliiig and maintaining the equality of
ihe Asiatics no man can say. Hut even
if armed couliict be averted for years
lhe Japanese power aud prestige will
grow, perhaps faster in peace thuu by
war.
No Change of Heart.
1-iOiidon, Jan. ".������The formal statement of the change iu the management
of the Times which will appear in tlu
newspapers, announces thai tiie business management of the paper win he
reorganized by Mr. Pearson, and that
tho "editorial charucter of the paper
will remain unchanged and it will be
conducted as in the past on lines independent of party politics."
Oklahoma for Taft.
Guthrie, Okla.,  Jan.  7.���Members    of
the Republican state Committee of Oklahoma rounded up here today in response to the call of Chairman Charles
E. Hunter. The meeting is to decide
Upon at time and place for holding the
state convention to elect the delegates
lo  the National Republican  convention
and also to decide whether Ihe prim
ary or Convention system of electing
delegates shall be adopted. Sentiinein
among the Republicans throughout  the
new stale appears lo be strongly in fa
vor of Secretary Tafi and it is nol improbable that the Oklahoma delegate-
will   go   to  Chicago   pledged   to  vote   for
the nomination of the secretary of war
for the presidency.
Nationalists    Uneasy.
Dublin,  .Ian.   7     There   is  au   uneusi
ness  in  Nationalist  circles over  rumor:
of the early retirement of BIr Henrj
Campbeli-Bannerman from the promlei
ship in favor of Herbert 11. Asquith.
The latter ls considered unsympathetic
in the cause of Home Rule, and his sue
Cession to that office would lead to Important developments in tin* policy of
the Irish party and its relations to the
Liberal  party.

TOO MAM FATALITIES
Succession   of   Serious    Disasters   May
Lead to Establishment of Department of Mines.
Three horrifying coal mine disasters
in the Eastern States, attended with
the loss of more than one thousand
lives. This is the recent record of a
single week* The world pauses in
terrified amazement and asks " can
nothing be done to prevent this awful
loss of life and destruction of property?"
Without doubt a csloser surveillance
of coal mines and mining methods generally is necessary. In countries where
mines are under government control,
while accidents are not by any means
unknown, they are at least, far less
numerous than they have been the past
few years in the United States, where
statistics show that mine accidents
and the percentage of fatalities Is increasing, and that they are three times
more numerous than in Belgium, for instance.
Until lately it has heen earnestly hoped tliut the long-continued effort to have
treated a Government Department of
.Mines and Mining, was about to meet
with success���President Roosevelt having become interested so far in the matter as to recommend it iu his receni
message to Congress. While this was
the most gratifying 'official recognition
the proposition had ever met, it hus
since developed that, it will be impossible to do anything further with the
ci cation of this new branch of the Federal  Government at  present.
While those who have worked so long
and so faithfully to this end feel keenly
the disappointment, this decision of official Washington will only spur them
on to greater endeavor, und the American Mining Congress which has been
the principal mover to this end will
simply redouble efforts to accoomplish
what they set out over a decade ago
to bring  about.
Although there wub at first much
opposition to the idea, and later an apathy regarding it. that was exa-sperating
lo the friends of the movement, they
have gained converts, many of whom
have since become active partisans. Recognition of the desirability of such s
branch of government by President
Roosevelt was a long step in the right
directum and in another year we hope
in see the Department of Mines an accomplished fact,���American Mining Review.
Yeoman's Case Up Again.
Providence, R. I., Jan. 7.���The case
of Chief Yeoman Hitenzle of the United
States .Navy, who, while in uniform, was
denied admission to the dancing pavil
ton at Newport in the summer of
ISfiQ, came up for hearing today
ln the supreme court oi Rhode
Island. The case atracted much
attention at the time. Many naval
officers and enlisted men contributed toward the expense of the court
action which followed, und President
Roosevelt also took a personal Interest
in the matter. In November, 1906, the-
superior court gave a decision afliruling the right of the defendants, the owners of the pavil lion, to exclude from
their public place uny one they desired to exclude. The case now names
before the supreme court on an appeal
from that   decision.
