Montreal, July 28—In a very <,fast
and exciting struggle the New West-
ministers defeated the Shamrocks by
6 to 2 here today, iri the second series for the Minto cup.
As the majority of goals in both
games are to count) the New West-;
minster* team are thereby winners',
and take the,,cup.
The Shamrocks, were .strengthened
by Howard, their point man,, who
was,out of last week's-game on ..account of an injured wrist.
.- New Westminster played hard and
with a'dash and kept the game well
in' hand from the start.. * Their- passing and running was excellent. '

Willemstad,    Island   of    Curacao,
July 28.—The relations between Ven-
ezula and the people of the Island of
Curacao,   Dutch   -West Indies,   .' are
strained to,the breaking point.   Following a long series of what the.resi-'"
dents of Curacao regard, as antagonistic actions on the part of President
Castro," directed  against themselves
and   the   Dutch " government   njobs
gathered in- force in this capital last-
night and to-day and expressed their
resentment   in an'   attack upon the
homo of a Vevezuelan who had published    statements    in     Venezuelan
newspapers derogatory to the island,
and   . later held violent demonstrations in front of the residence of. the
Venezuelan consulate, surrounded .the
German "" consulate,    where    he bad
taken refuge,  and compelled the ordering out of armed troops so that
the consul might be protected from
injury. _ ' - „
The demonstration before the residence of the Venezuelan consul Senqr
Lopez, occurred late last, night,1 and
although no actual attack was made
it is stated that two shots were fired
from the" consul's house, no one,
however, being injured.'1 .  .
, Prior-to this, about ten o'clock at
night a mob .numbering about, ,.one
thousand gathered" iri front of the
dwelling , of a'Venezuelan 0 resident,
who*, it is alleged, had insulted: Curacao in .the*Venezuelan papers,.broke
down the doors with stone and .seizing the man, compelled him to" sign
a paper which set forth' an "elaborate
excuse' for the publication ,' of the'
statements ' with t which he* * was-
charged. ,.  . . - •-'•-,
The leaders of the populace also
forced Kim tb make a public apology
from the balcony of his home, while
the crowd_below hooted-and groaned
in accompaniment.- "'Furthermore,
members of the-man's family ' were
compelled to play the Dutch national
anthem, • - while the _,people below'
shouted "down with Castro" '■ and
"long may Wilhelmina live."'
The police were entirely unable, to
cope with the demonstrators, and
their efforts in this, direction were
futile.'.-No bodily, harm was done to
anyone, .but the shouting 'and cheering, continued for a time,. and. then
a procession-was formed'and a march
The Printers' team and the mighty
fat Leans met on the diamond     on
Thursday     night.    It     was ,a' good
gamo in spite of tho score, and   the
Prints had it all their own way until
a eou'plo. of rank errors wero, mado
by' two   of the   ink slingors   which
started tho hard luck story for  the
newspaper men.   Owing to tho Leans
not coming down early enough    the
gamo had to be called at tho end of
tho fourth • innings when tho     score
stood 17-16 in favor of the Ink pasters.    Tho   , Leans   put   in a striped
biped to do tho twirling, but.as    ho
was     touched   up too  freely,  thoy
whistled    him ovor to tho flrst bag
and put LoMotto in tho box,     This
was    a  change   for tho better. Mc-
Namara on third got disgusted with
his bad catching and played sick so
as    to    got another Loan (?) called
Pollock   to   tako his placo.    Pollock
changed to second and played a good
gamo,   Ho was also thero with   tho

- The Daily Mail says: After all, ttuy
number of unpleasant incidents is
surprisingly'"- small and the • initial
feeling may be removed by ' second
thoughts' and. fuller information.
Perhaps,with Olympic games as with
peace conferences, they may' not re-'
alise the-highest hope of their projectors, yet.they 'help the world forward." . * '. "
On'calm reflection, leaving opinion
takes tbe proper view that from tho
moment Dr: Muir, iri attendance bn
Dorando, ordered him' to be lifted
from the track he was out of tho
race. Dr.. Muir himself says: "Dorando had'completely'spent his energy when lie fell,,and if he had riot
been lifted up he must have lain on
the tracks long after' Hays and the
others arrived."" '
Some comment having been caused
by the signing of a contract :by Dor-1
ando to appear at music halls, v the
Italian explained yesterday that he
had signed the contract under stress
of his first emotion, and cannot
withdraw from;it, but', he added, he
will only appear,,for a single week;

'■'Quebec,    July    29-The   prince   of
Wales this morning visited the Roman Catholic, seminary at the-quaint
village of St.,v Joachim and "strolled
quietly through the vast halls    and
spacious grounds chatting informally
with   the   fathers.-,, There   was „ no
speech making^ but a cold, luncheon
was served beneath the -'trees. .His
royal highness partook of.the lowly
fare, common to the reflectory.
' The seminary farms were then visited, the price's escort being father
Mathcw,   who presented him to pll
the old relators of-the seminary-   in
turn'.  ,The ,   prince expressed himself
as being delighted with the work   of
the institution and grateful for the
warm and informal hospitality shown
him., The return journey was mado
in automobiles, and at each of tho
parishes  through     which the party
passe'd a halt was made at the Milage church were the clergy  vere pie-
sented to his royal highness.
At Ste Anne de Beaupre a linger
stay, was made to enable the ]'ince
to inspect all points of interest    at
that remarkable   shrine.   No inkling
of'   this   program    was   a:li.vo.l to
reach the ears of any but1 the clergy
concerned, so that the passage of the
prince' attracted   hardly any   attention.      The   prince   returned, to the
city "in time to see some,* part of the

OBJECTIONS ANSWERED

Supposing Socialism were established and everyone had sufficient for
all his needs, so.that a young man
like myself need not fear to, marry
on economic grounds, ..so'many would
get married that.iri, a comparatively
short time the population would increase beyond the food resources
available and; the condition of the
community be worse than ever.
I have bad so many letters on thiB
subject I. think.it is perhaps time "I
•gave tham a turn. ' "
The correspondent whose .letter I
nave quoted implies' that socialism
is not'worth the trouble because In
a very short time the pressure of
population-bn the means of subsistence, would.. , cause a return of the
very .evils socialism is intended to
abolish. ''.,". '    „
-. In doing so he omits two very important - factors in the problem :
"man's inventive faculty, and man's
intellectual and moral ideas.
. Assuming an increase of population
under Socialism, is there any reason
to. believe that we should, not be
■able to- increase.production to , the
■-same extent?,"
., Already, today one man is able to
produce the year's bread for a family, by less than one month's labor,
■ Productive power ' has increased
much- faster than the population.
- If-the productive power, of the- na-
.tiou were all, utilised, we should ibe
able' to increase" the supply of -food
to an enormous' extent. -Prince Kro-
- potkin and other r/mers have shown
.that, these islands would produce suf-
- ficieut food for eighty- riiillions^todayT
-And0 the    possibility of • increasing
'the productivity of-the soil are'_ by
no means   exhausted.\ Only recently
Professor Bottomley made a discov-
■^eiy7*wh1^'a7Svrtii--ad"d—'thirty—bo^vfifty"
per   cent.' to the.yield  of    certain
•crops arid-bring into ..cultivation an.
enormous* area of waste" land,
Nearly, all the brains for.the    last
hundred years have been devoted'to
the   "creation    .and improvement of
•manufacturing appliances.   Had agri-
■  .cultural  methods»received  the  same
attention,  we should not no\v have
to bewail the decay of our prime industry.
•   Well, that is tho first, point. There
, is not    the  slightest necessity why
anyone should     not have abundant
'.food.   No     ono denies that.  It   .is
merely a question     of organisation
and distribution.
But, given the organisation, there
is still, wc are told, tho possibility,
of such an increase in population
that It would eventually outrun thc
productive capacity of tho people.
The    struggle for existence is     in
ceaseless oporation.   If you   abolish
thnt struggle, man will increase    in
numbers, and at .the aamd timo   do-
n tcrlornto,  physically,  mentally,  and
.morally. So that his productive
capacity would gradually decrease,
Just   at   the    timo whon conditions
-■called for an increaso. Tho result
would bo n terrific, struggle'for existence, nnd our last state would bo
worse than tho pronent,
I havo before pointed out that tho
champions of tho eternal Htruggle for
oxlstonce always phut their eyes to
certain portinent fricts, Thoy claim
thnt all progress to tho struggle for
existence ignoring tho history ' of
tho human raco, which In every lino
announces thnt, progress linn boon
caused by tho limitation of tho
struggle for existence.
Kvory man dona not strive with
every other "mnn for the mentis of
subsistence. It would be truer to
say that no mnn in our present no-
cicty could exist in a constant condition of struggle with IiIh follows,
To live today we must co-operato,

WAT If the *enne nt on»ratlon   wet*
if ' the - common means of existence

fall into idle arid dissolute habits.
, That this sometimes happens today
in cases.where people suddenly come
into possession of wealth is true,
but what is the-reason? John Smith
of Oldham, who has been grinding
out his life in a.mill for twenty
years receives a legacy. Would .' any
sane person work in a factory of to-,
day if he could get out of it? John
Smith gets out not having the slightest idea how to occupy his time, fills
it by spending his money. '
But this does'not always happen,'
even in Johri Smith's case; and
where a man who has had some education, a legacy is merely the opening up of opportunities to indulge,
his natural bent in some art or,.industry,     , * i    ""'.'.', :,'s
.There; are' ma*ny rich who from, generation - to generation are born into
conditions of ease. Are they all idle
and dissolute? Surely not all. We
are " continually, asked .• to admire
their industry, and to be greatful
for the , multitudinous. good works
ttiey perform for no payment.      •   '■'
Under Socialism every man-would
have to work; ' Under , Socialism
every child would be educated. 'Under
Socialism - opportunities'for occupation in artistic' and scientific pursuits would-be open to all. Under
such circumstances the man who
would, choose to live an idle.life after
he had earned his bread and butter
would be a rarity;        .      ■ "
: Why, to-day we are told tbat it is
a.,shame to interfere with, man's desire ■ to'"work as long as he likes.
We., are- given to-understand that
every, man, if.'he could thereby improve his position, would always' be
willing to-work longer than, eight
hours. Well, " under, socialism, he
would .be sure of getting ,the fruits
of his work.   .-   •
The New-York World the other day.
took a poll of the delegates of the
Central , Federated Union;.of New

would,. ...vote „. for Taft.. Eleven ,'Jtiad
sense enough to-say they would vote
for Debs.". Fifty-one .were "'foolish., enough to .say1 they would vote for
Bryan; ;■_.-'. 't    ,-     ■;     . ■;,*'.-,   .
* The record of,the. Republican party
is seriously obnoxious to , make it
impossible for a sincere labor leader
to support the party.'
To many workers, the Democratic
party has no record. They have forgotten Cleveland, and as Bryan runs
and never wiris they live on the hope
that he might do something when he
comes,to power.
' But if these Bryanites were wise
men they would look into the record
of the; Democratic party where ' it
has been 'in power." They would, examine the labor record at Tammany
Hall of Jim Gufley, of Tom Haggart
and of Roger, Sullivan.
, If after they had examined that record they chose to vote tbe Democratic ticket it would be time for
their unions to call in an alienist.
But perhaps they would consider
these-particular machines as democracy at its worst.,
■ Well,. then, let us take the south.'
There Democracy has ruled for nearly a century. The record of the Democrats there is long and clear and
terrible. * •   ' ' -
To keep its workers in slavery it
came very near destroying this republic. •     ■ •     t. '
To'* have the right to beat, club,
and. own other human :- beings;, to
liave the- right to take babies from"*
their mothers and sell them at - the
block.to have the privilege of owning men as they owned cattle; .this
democracy of the-south brought" on
one of the most terrible civil wars
the world has known. ' ■
But,this is an old story'. Go into
the south today and look at their
rule.
You -, will find peonage, convict-
labor, thousands of men and boys
working with chain and-ball Under
the eye and musket of a prison
guard;' -
Go into the' factories. Where     will
you find wages' so low? .Where, hours
so long? Where children, so tiny?
. Go into' the homes. And-where will'
will you find misery so hopeless?
Yet here the democrats rule. ' Had
they wished it there might have been
factory legislation ' in the ' south'.
There might-have been living wages.
There .might have, been, anl'eight hour
the
than
day arid sanitary homes.
- They have ruled absolutely, and
alone. No rival party has had - a
chance to interfere with their rule.
Thoy have denied-votes to "Niggers," and there nre not enough
Republicans in the south to .make
their opposition of any importance.
Yet after the rule of nearly a hundred years the Democratic party in
the., south has produced conditions
rivalling the worst in the world. '   .
I have been in Russia and I havo
been, in the south, and in my opinion'the condition of labor in^
southern Ptates is no better
that of tin x-tussian peasant.
Yet for a party with this kind of
labor record fifty-ono .trado union
leaders have decided to voto.
Tho' workingmen of tho north in-,
tend to mako common'cause with
these aristocrats of tho South.
Tho rule,of Tammany Hall and tho
other, criminal Democratic organisations of the north is not onough for
theso labor leaders. Thoy apparently want to go to tho very depths.'
Well, labor is strong enough to'got
what it wants; and if that is what
labor wants—well, that , is -what
labor wants.

. Man has a natural' instinct for occupation. That a man.employs his
time foolishly or wastefully is largely", the result of lack of education,
want ot knowledge\of what to do, or
how..to do. There are-millions 'of
people who do not kuow what to do

them gravitate to thc pubs?
■ Socialism would change.all thatu  .
•Now it is common knowledge that
when ' a man has reached a certain

! ing class.
The. problem of the unemployed is
intense today in the midst,of.the
crisis.; .But-it is never -absent.^' The-
present bffers"tian opportunity to provide for the future,'.
So it is 'that' the Socialist party
speaks -. upon this subject with no uncertain' voice; '• It'd'eriiaiids:
"The.-, immediate government- relief
'for the -. unemployed workers ..by
building- schools,- 'by reforestirig' cut
over and waste lands, by reclamation
of arid' tracts, arid' the, building of
canals, ■ andi'by, '. extending. all., other
public works.. All persons employed
on such works shall be employed directly, by the'government "under ., an
eight hour work-day and at. the prevailing union wages. The government shall also loan.money to states
and municipalities without, interest
for the purpose of carrying on public
works. It shall, contribute to ' the
funds of.labor organisations for the
purpose of carrying on public works.
It shall' contribute to the, funds ■ of
labor organisations for the purpose
of assisting their unemployed ' members, arid shall take such other measures within its power as will lessen
the widespread misery of the workers
caused by che misrule of the capitalist class."
' This plank sets forth things to be
done , and the way, to do themi " It
proposes.great works of public interest and permanent need shall be undertaken at once, The things to be
produced are things whose need and
desirability are universally admitted.
Provision is made for the proper
reward and conditions, of employment for those unemployed.
Much""~ of suob work ' must be
done by. local governments arid assistance, to this end is also provided
for. .'■"•■
Where direct relief without work
must be .given, it provides, that such
relief shall /be issued through organisations of laboring men. This measure presents no experiment, since it
has been tried with marvellous success in other countries. .'.   ' l
.Such action would- meah'the doubling of the strength and influence of
trade unions of America within a
single year and • transform- thera into
an invulnerable bulwark against capitalist oppression.    -'
No other action within .,the present-
organisation of society would accomplish as much for the working class
as the carrying out of the provisions
of.this plank. ,
• No other political .party makes any
mention of the unemployed, although
it .is the., problem of "problems with

"I then took an oath that bo long
as I am permitted • to breathe the
air of freedom I shall do all in my
power to prevent anyone from suffering the tortures of suffocation.. Air
is more abundant than water, on

make continued protest for every
prisoner, for every mine' worker, for
every slum child and weak man."
That thero should be one official so
lost to decency from suffocation ."in
any prison is a disgrace to the civilisation of. the twentieth century.
We are told that the political prisoners of Russia, suffer more from
lack of pure air, than from all other
causes.; Most of these prisoners'.aire
prisoners because they have aspirations . for'freedom and democracy.
That this torture should be • permitted is an. indictment against'- the
ruling, capitalist class. of the world
that, abundantly, proves their unfitness to control the affairs of society.
i
If civilisation means anything, it
means that the brutal man, or nation, has forfeited the right to control. ,     .       "
Every, life snuffed out for want of
pure air, in shop, in mine, in factory
or in prison, i3 an unanswerable argument against the present system.
Tyranny 'and'brutality are no

The executioner of this young woman reached the city, last night. He
carried a thin long box containing
the ax with which he did his work,
and "brought with him also a handbag with a suit-* of evening clothes.
The wearing of this garb is an official'requirement of the sombre occa-'
sion. The preparation for the execution at the prison had been completed and'the man did his work quickly
arid' . privately, jmd departed from
Frieberg as quickly as he came.
The executioner is an anonymous
person,.whp was sent here from Dresden on the announcement that the
king of Saxony had; refused to par-'
don Grete Beir for her crime. -

The old age pension bill has passed
the house of lords. ' It is not all that
the Socialists asked. It places -the
age limit very high and the pension
is too low. , ■•■ .'=,
But it is a big improvement on the
poorhouso, which is all the broken
gets in this country.   "
This measure was' not passed because the house of lords love the
workers. It was not passed because
English workmen bogged for it. It
was ■ not passed because English
workmen voted for Llboral or Conservative candidates.
All theso things Wero tried for
many years. A largo number ol
trade's unionists wero oven elected to
parliament on . the Liberal ticket.
But nothing hnpponcd. So long hb
laborers wero liberal or conservatives
it mado littlo.diflorenco how many ol
them went to parliament, So long
aa tho capitalists controlled tho poli-
tical machines that olectnd pucIi
members tlio members dared not do
anything to lioip their cIuhh.
Tn fact thero was never more Liberal-labor membcrH in parliament
than at'the time when tho houso of
lords rendered t.lio.Tn(! Vnlo decision,
a decision almost as bad as somo of

The. by-law to raise ten thousand

defeated by a vote of 32 against and

To say this is a deplorable thing
'Is putting the matter very mildly.
^  This money was wanted badly  for
improvfemftfttfl. Tho peoplo from' the
annex especially wanted ieveUl improvements, in addition to tli6 grading through the recreation grounds.
But   they   ovldently   did not wnnt
thorn   bad enough to turn   out   and
voto for tho bylaw.   Just two peoplo
voted from thc Annex, and now the
improvements    have to co stopped.
The grading too, has to bo discontinued and is   worso ln its present
condition than boforo.   Hut tho most
blanio   should  bo put on   tho alder-,

Tho union is strong in membership,
Whilo this Is true It takos moro than

business had been gone through. District President P. H. Sherman addressed tlio meeting.   In his opening
' remarks he, complemented the Bank-
' head local in tlie ,way which     they
conducted their business'matters. He
1. also stated that the district officers
had had less trouble with Bankhead
* local than any other local In the district.   Mr. Sherman gave a condens-
. ed'report of his work during the last
twelve^months, after, which he spoke
on legislation and its effects on    the
working class.   One striking remark
,   of Mr. Sherman was, he 'chirms that
'  ' it -would take the people of the west
■five years to^consnme what theyjpro-
duce   in one.    If this statement   is
..'true it i8.easy«to<see the cause of.all
.'. the hard times wo.have, been and are
' '.passing •* through.    'Mr.- Sherman's
closing remarks were along the lines
., of  Sdcialism.    President■',- ■„ Sherman"
.-.claims that-.the Socialist party is the
-.'/..one and only .party., a working man
';   should   .belong-to.   He also pointed
.out    that.the working" man's salva-

A lively flnclnllst mooting was held
In the club hall on (-Sunday night.
Mr, David Patton occupied tho chair
and nft.er a few choice remarks culled
on organiser Kvans to address tho
smell compnny present, Drawing the
nttrntion of his audience to the
pending Dominion election, he called
upon the workers to unite and to
make the nation throb with the fact
that" ^cialism was a living, power
which -aimed at production -.being for
the "use of the human family and not
for; personal gain. He also pleaded
for -a greater spirit of harmony and
brotherhood among the toilers, after
which Mr. Minton; .Fernie, delighted
the audience with a remarkable
speech, full of choice and apt,illustration- of the'^ imperfect' and-unjust
conditions of the present day system,
proving'that he who gets the least
of this world's goods are they who
provide the ease .and wealth for
others, quoting the old story of the
priest who says "he prays for all,
tbe soldier who fights for all and the
toiler who works for all.". Then
drifting into the increasing produce
of'modern machinery; he asked- who
•was reaping the benefit of this increased production, asserting that'
the workers were in no" better position today than they were in olden
times with hand labor. All they got
then, as now, was a bare existence.
'• He strongly advocated the necessity" of every worker being a member
of a trades union for ,the protection
of,.hia present day rights, but even
this was not sufficient. ,We must organise for political purposes and seek
by constitutional ■ methods -"t'oV dp
away with a system that was favorable ', to the few and-- unjust to the
many, concluding with the fact that
a*crisis would surely come and-that-
the workers must awake to'.a';"sense
of their duty and vote square -v-arid'
plump for their own well being. . -
' ■ Many , question's were - asked by
Messrsi-'.Eilbeck, Limb 'and' Bambor-
pugh, mostly-on the. moral and re-
religious aspect. of,^Socialism .* to
which,Mr. Minton replied!very"favbr--
'ably..-,'; '.' . '.,'', V"        .   ''    -  ;
The ' next meeting of the above
party is ,,on Friday night, August
14th, at which the Rev. Isaac Steen-'
son will speak.
There seems-to be a great deal, of
'misunderstanding, between^ certain
parties of the Socialists who think
Christianity should have' no place in
Socialism, and ^certain christians,
whose vision is not large enough to
see that Christ's „ mission was to'
make this liie. worth' living in ' and
an abode of peace and plenty. May
the time soon come when we- shall
unite our. forces, not "for sectarianism, but, for "righteousness and-, the
uplifting of humanity. Such can
only be by the crucifixion, of" narrow
mindedness and prejudice. ° ■"■
•-Mr." Minton- on Sunday night as-
"leTtea~*T\Frt"lr^~;threr-ioi"d*ctnphasi"sr
that after two thousand-years of
Christianity, the world was'' worse!
but bis* assertion was .so emphatically contradicted and there it was left
without definite'proof on either side.
This' is a . sidelight of ■ Socialism
that 'demands attention, scrutiny,
and debate. '
An excellent program consisting of
solos, trios and *, choruses was rendered in the Presbyterian church on
Tuesday night before a large and appreciative audience. Miss Gray, the
young cornet soloist also pleased
everybody,by her choice rendering of'
favorite, airs. The soloist were Mr.
R. Sampson, who, in his best form
sang, "Alice whore art thou?" ■ and
"The Holy City," Miss Cissy Mc-
Court, "Gathering shells upon tho
sea slioro1* nnd "Coming'thro' tho

John Hughes and Mr. Roborts.
In connection with the above'
church the Sunday School are holding thoir annual children's day tomorrow, Sunday, whon tho children

THE KING AND PARLIAMENT *
(X > ' ,
  A Blunder or -an Insult?
-.' ,,-,, .,- -   . ■   -    ■ ■  ■ 'S
The  "Manchester Guardian"    comments on his case in these terms:    •'
The case of Mr. Arthur Ponsonby
. is perhaps the most remarkable   oi
of all.   He was elected for'the Stirling' Burghs only a' few weeks ago.
'   He has given only one conspicuous
vote.   He went   into     the     lobby
against the proposed visit of     the
king to Reval.   It is inconceivable
that the ■ king should have considered that a vote on'an open question of foreign     politics—on which
the opinion of the house of"  commons was invited—implied any disloyalty to the throne^'
But yet, with a self contradiction'
almost equal to the Chronicle's, it
remarks:    , ,-,  .
The action suggests that    a new
element, and ono of .-.which account
will have to be taken, is being introduced' into the relations of par-
, liament and the crown.
summing
' .British .Socialism has hitherto -dj.s--
tihguished itself from its' continental . connections by an all but unanimous .adherence to the "monarchic'
•principle. A head of the people being essential as a national, .representative, at public functions and as an
entertainer of foreign guests, we
have argued that a professional specially bred and trained for the work
was in mauy ways preferable' to an
amateur, and considering the intrigues and. chicaneries of Presidential elections iu - France and America, we have concluded that heredit-
' ary. kingship though absurd.in  theory
.•was attended in practice under
British", conditions with advantages.
But, this view was always conditional on the. British king's genial
acceptance of the figurehead conception, of his position and duties. We
never for a moment surrendered the
vital     principle that any and every
kind of executive function and power
must rest upon the basis of democratic election. We were content to
waive the divine right' of the people
.only on-'the condition that the king
1 gave up all • divine right to the
throne. *
Until now this implicit, mutual, un-
•standing has seemed to be cheerfully
realised'and Joyally obeyed by King
Edward with ,the result that'"the
-monarchy has won a popularity more
genuine, and widespread • than in any
-other country. "We had all ;become
■genuinely attached to the king. We
were prepossessed,by his hearty bonhomie. We believed him to be not
only kindly and good naturcd, but
•also shrewd and tactful. We chuckled in comparing him gleefully with
his bombastic, meddling, cant'anker-
. ous' nephew of Germany. Our king,
we boasted was an English King, a
royal democrat, a prince of good fellows, a loyal and able first servant
lL*(l 5ate*   And -we  did  not be-i phatically of Keir Hardie "and" Victor

N CANAL
Driver Mistook Alley for Street
and Drove Full Speed to
Death.:
The .'.'Daily  Chronicle's'
up is also worth quoting:
The only conceivable reason why
Mr. Ponsonby did not receive the
"king's     commands   to Windsor is
• that he voted with the minority in
favor of the motion for.the reduction of the Foreign Office vote   as
. a    protest against    his Majesty's
visit to Reval.   That visit was    a'
legitimate, topic .for public discussion, and there was room for honest difference of opinion as to   its
wisdom ' in   existing  circumstances.
Some hon. members who depricat-'
ed it did 'so because",   of the high
honor and respect" in which   ' they
hold the king.   That they     should
be penalised , for thus doing   their j
duty,  as they     conceived     it,    is j
wholly     repugnant to the doctrine '
of the freedom of parliament.  The
' 'Royal uarden party 'for 1908 will
be remembered for a piece of tactlessness for which",there is no precedent in the reign of King Edward. ■ .-  ,

Rochester, New York, July 28—Edward . S. Bartlett" president of the
Trebert Gas, Engine company, of this
'city, accompanied by Miss Geraldine
Tumilty, daughter of a wealthy Ply-"
mouth avenue family, and driving a
new automobile, mistook an alley
for a main thoroughfare and drove
(at full speed into the Erie canal. .
The body of Miss Tumilty was recovered at 10.30 o'clock today; the
body of Bartlett was found nn hour
later. Tho wheel tracks on the bank
of the towpath indicated that just
as the water waa reached, tho driver
saw his mistake and tried to turn
aside. The impetus or tho Heavy
machine was too great, however, and
the automobile plunged into tne canal. The machine was first seen about
five o'clock this morning with the
top cover sticking up above the' surface of the wnter of the canal. A
boatman also found a "Merry widow" had floating in the water. The
police, raised the sunken automobile
with a1 derrick, obtained the number
and a letterin the pocket of a raincoat on'the seat. The letter was addressed to R. S. Bartlett, and led to
the identification of the parties!
A man by the name of Dick West
gave the police considerable information.- He met Bartlett, lie says,' on
Monroe avenue after midnight.' He
said Bartlett ottered to take him*to
his home on Broadway. Oh entering
the automobile '' he. saw a young
woman, who he said was'Miss Geraldine ..Tumilty, whose-parents live on
Plymouth avenue. On being left at
his door he stopped aud watched
Bartlett turn-the corner. .The-police
and * coroner believe that Bartlett
mistook ' a short thoroughfare . for
Clifford street, and on making the
corner had the machine wide open.
Bartlett.. was ' known ' to be a fast
driver and had been arrested once
for violating,the speed ordinance. ."  '
Wm. J. Keefe, No '51 Donning'St.,
at 1.50, o'clock this morning' had
heard the "chugging" sound of a
gasoline motor apparently from the
direction of Denning street, a mo-"
ment later there was a; loud'splash.
K.eete^_was—a"t—flrsf^Trittlenpuzzleir

they must have been caused by a
motor boat on the canal and did not

Eskimos Provide Food and Clothes For
Returning Ghosts.■> •
- .The natives of'the Yukon river region
hold'a festival of tho, dead every year
.Shortly'before Christmas and a greater
"festival at intervals,of several .years.
.At these seasons\food, drink and
;clothes are provided for the returning'
ghosts in the clubhouse of tlie village,
; which is illuminated for the' occasion
;*tvith oil lamps. Every man'or woman
■■who wishes to honor a dead friend sets'
'up a lamp on a stand in front of the
place which the dead one used, to occupy in the clubhouse. These lamps.1
filled with seal oil. are kept "burning
day and night until the festival is over.
They are'believed to light-the shades
on their return to their old home and
back again to the land of the dead. If
any,one fails tb put up a lamp in'the
clubhouse nnd to keep It burning, the
shade whom he or. she desires to honor
could not find its way to the place and
so would miss tho. fc-nst. When n person has been, much disliked his ghost
is sometimes purposely ignored, and
that is deemed the severest punishment
that could be inflicted upon lilm. After
tho songs of" Invltution id the dead have
been sung the givers of the feust take
n small portion of food from ovory dish
and cast It down ns un offering to the
shades. Then ouch pours a little, wnter ou tho floor so that it runs through
the cracks. In this way thoy believed
the spiritual essence of nil the food and
,water is convoyed to the souls, , With
songs and dances the feast comes to nn
'end and the ghosts are dismissed to
■their oven'.place. The daucers dance,'
not only In tho clubhouse. 1,-ut also nt
the graves and on the ice if the dead
met their deaths by drowning. On the
eve of tho festival the nearest male
reintive goes to* the grave and summons tlie ghost by planting' there d
small model of n seal spear or of a
wooden dish, 'according as the dead
was a mnn or a woman. The totems of.
'the dead are marked oii these' Implements. .The dead who have none to
make .offerings to them are believed to
suffer great destitution; hence the Eskimos fear to die without leaving behind them some ono who will sacrifice
to tlieir spirit, and. childless people
generally, adopt children lest, their
shades' be forgotten at the festivals.

I The   Ghost  of  Loehrain \
i Castle t
- By Mrs.C. N. Williamson
Author of, "The Princess Passes,"
"The
Berlin; July. 28v-Despatches' received here today from Monastir state
that the women of all Macedonia are
parading the'streets unveiled, rejoicing in the granting of the new constitution, by the sultan. *
Tub parades are the result of. an
order issued by a Moslemt priest cancelling -the command 'of the Koran
that, all women must wear veils in
public, and. for the first time'in centuries, the women of turkey have exposed their faces to the public eye.
The Koran commands absolutely
that no woman of faith can: appear
outside her house without a veil covering her entire face with the exception of slit for the eyes. The fact
that the Moslems have taken' it upoi'
themselves to cancel the sacred commands of the Koran indicates that
the advocates of the "young Turkey"
idea has thoroughly entrenched themselves before beginning operations.
With the .religious element on its
side,, the revolution in Macedonia assumes a more serious aspect nnd it
is thought it will be hard for the
sultan to overcome the 'disaffection
without completely yielding to the
demands of his European subjects. ,
According''to the best information
obtainable here, the whole' of' Macedonia, * instead of being quieted by
the iradeof yesterday, calling , for
the re-establishment of 'the' parlia-
ment.of, 1876, is riotous because - of
the realisation of the leaders of- the
"Young. Turkey" movement >■-that
they have frightened Constantinople.
A statement, given out here today .by
the leaders of the movement' announces ' that 'the victorious rebels
will not.-lay down'their arms until
they are assured that, the'call"for
the parliament.means that the representation will be-fair, that the press
will lie free arid that, thc great army I
of exiles of ..their partyc is granted:
amnesty.

ing there-was, a deathlike silence Ih
the tower, which' seemed strnnge1 in
a. crowded hotel, full from cellars to
attics of lively., people,
It was a large -room, - circular in
shape, "with twe extraordinary . deep
set windows', opposite-one another,
so retired in the thickness of the tower wall, that each one had tlie'appearance of being .at the far end of
another and smaller room; but the
windows were so wido and so high
that despite this* peculiarity they gave
plenty of light.
Under each wns a cushioned sent;
and tho alcove of the eastern window
had doovs on ench side, in Uio black
oak wainscot. These- doors concealed
spacious wardrobes, but the west alcove had doors of, glass on either side,
opening into large recesses. The one
on tho loft wns n bathroom, while in
tho ono on thc right stood n bed, apparently carved out oi.one piece, with
the oak wall behind it. This bed was,
of  courso,  invisible  from  the  oiitei
room, as the wainscoted wall   ud it
from the alcove,    therefore    hlspoth
was  practically  in  possonHioii  of    n
separate sitting-room. Thc glnsmloorij
were sliding doors therefore*thoy did
not interforo in  I'USBing, to and fro.
and could alwnys bo left open. Ihe
furnituro of the big outer room wai-
admirnblo, Klspeth thought, although
it was of many dilfeient periods and
had perhaps been relegated hero, because it  hnd inndci plnco  for somo-
thing better oipf.wliore.   There   were
two or throo wonderful old chairs, a
chnrmins table  with  claw  foot,    an
ancient, "secretin'}' book-cin-ci bureau,
with  glnHs door*,  behind  which  the
covers of old-t'iifihioned bookn »liowed,
and a tail wcreen ol beautiful, though

The girl  thoroughly    enjoyed    the

Lying there -between tile coOi liiu.ii

though after'the long, exciting day
she had passed, sluep oug.it to have
come" quickly. She had leU the g'.-s--
doors pushed wide open, and tin. alcove which she faced a» ssuo lay wiii-
white with the light or ii late-rising
moon.
"I'm    glad    I    don't - believe    in
ghosts!"  she said  tc    herself.    "On
such a night*-! Tlie sentence broke
off short in lilspeth's thoughts, and
her heart gave a leiip. Just behind
her head there was a new .sound,
which neither mice not rats could
have made, a queer, metallic sound,
like the clinking of a chain oi ii. jingling of keys one against- another.
Once and again' it came;,-then,-..the
top of a high heel on a stone stair.
The girl's blood knocked .at her
temples. She: sat up in bed and, .listened .through'the thick'beating in
■her ears. The sound, was fainter now,
as'if farther away.- With hands that
sliook a little she found -the candle
and matches on a smnll table by the
bedside, and struck' a light which
glowed small and yellow in the white
moonhaze.' ''    .
. All was still now, as she waited,,
and the impression she had had "of
something strange and horrifying be-,
gan to fade. She must have imagined
the jingling, andjhe-tap, tap of, lit-'
tie heels. It win-.'well known that
mice could make alJ kinds of extra-,
ordinary noises, scuttling about in
the walls of the tower,' a glorious
playground for the mouse tribe. How
stupid she was to have a fright, she
who hnd"boasted of her courage, and
said that she "hoped tlie tower was
haunted!" Now, she would blow-out
the candle and force herself to sleep,
or she would not be at her best to begin work to-morrow morning.
Down she flung ?herself among the
big pillows again, but- scarcely had
she begun conscientiously to count
sheep jumping over a gate, when a
soft, heavy weight' brushed against
the wall which'was. one with the head
of the bed.   ,*W faint    cry ■ followed,
side which hao'Uin hexf the floor,
some one had sketched the face of -j
young boy. The penciled "lines had
faded, the paper was tlie color ,of old
ivory, and the collar and tie suggested by a few light strokes were ' of
quaint fashion. But the face was
strikingly handsome, and so individual as to convince Elspeth that as
a likeness the little sketch must hav.e
been a success.' In one corner there
were initials, and a date, but they
had ,been blurred either deliberately or by* accident, and Elspeth held
the paper close to the light without
being'able to "decipher them. Suddenly as she studied the faint lettering,
something seemed to fall from above,
past  her eyes—something swift and
small, from which tlie liglit struck a
gleam as ii from' a ruby, and at the
same instnht the ruby wiis shattered,
in a red splash upon the sketch.'
With a cry Elspeth sprang to' her
fret, still mechanically, holding tlie
bit of paper. Tlie .pictured face of the
boy was stained red; there was a red
. liquid smear ou net thumb and fin-
j ger, and as she stared, horrified,'
dumfounded, ai'iui there was a
swift, ruby, ii-isli  bsfore her eyes.

;     Instantly  tlie words oi the house
\ keeper  leaped   into the  girl's  mind.
| The bell!  The bell by which she could
""summon the night porter-—where war-
it?' Ah, she remembered, and almost
as quickly* as the thought had flashed into lier mind her finger'was hov
ering over the electric button.
A second • more',' nud the'summon!-
would have gone flashing over the
wire; but something seemed to restrain Elspeth's, hand, as if it hud
been seized and forcibly held back.
"No!" she said, half aloud. "I won't
do it." And with-great force of self-
control, she turned her back on the
bell, which meant help, and human
companionship, if she chose to have
'it.   ■ -      <
'.'Very likely they hnve had thtf same
kind of, trouble, here before with their
secretaries," ■ the girl, thought.   "Mi.
McGowan told me ihe one from' tlie
neighborhood whom, they had had before couldn't  mnnnje  the  work,  but
I'm sure he   looked -. odd,  when   he
said it, and perhaps there was more
behind.    Probably- they're , expecting
me'  to make   a   fuss   of.-,some .sort
though T don't come from the neigh-,
borhood.-and am'not supposed to .have
heard the storv of'this Tower, whatever it is.   Maybe the other girl knew
it beforehand.   But it doesn't matter,
I won't'make" a fuss!,, I boasted that
I was brave, and T'm going to .stand
it somehow, if it,kills me.'  It can't
be ghosts;-ghosts don't, have blood.
The  chances are  that ;some one tonight has been playing a horrid trick
on  me.1 Well,' they  shan't get-.any
satisfaction - from  it!    I'm   going   to
stop on,here, and in this room, if I
have to'"stay   awake  all* night,-and
work nil day! every day, till whoever
it is nets tired."
This forceful determination poured
courage into .Elspeth's chilled veins,
as if'she had been drinking strong
wine. Instead of completing the hnvo..'already made -in her spirit by
terror, as for a few seeonds it had
threatened to do.- the fall of ruddy
drops-'from the ceiling had undone
the work of the strange sounds behind
the walls. The girl. was, even calm

Elspeth did not sit up in bed this
time.. She lay still as if frozen, her
eyes staring wide, her ears strained
to catch a ■ tioubled murmur, of
voices, It was as if a man and woman talked together, and then came
' footsteps mingled , with the metallic
clinking in which the girl had tried
to disbelieve.
Sho no longer struggled to be

6he sprang out of' bed, and ran, pattering on her bare feet, out into tho
