London,   April   11.   The    Standard, land the Inquiries wblcb tbey instltut
which  under the Competition  of    ill
penny Times is tail losing its repute
tii n   as    a   Conservative    journal,
(hough It still remains aa Conservative as ever In politics, today publish
��'d a circumstantial story indicating
;i carefully engineered German plot
to suborn British naval officers.
A Rystem Ib outlined embracing an
i ffort to take advantage of the many
llritlsh officers who have to maintain their style and dignity without
extraneous additions to their pay.
Slmmondl detective agency, whicli is
frequently employed upon government work, permits the Standard to
state that tbey recently received an
apparently purely commercial inquiry
from Hamburg respecting the financial position of naval officers station
��'d at Portsmouth, Devonpori, Chat-
bam and elsewhere, The wholesale
nature of the Inquiries aroused the
suspicions  of the   Simmond    agency
ed at llaiiilnire and Merlin Indicate
Ihat the undoubted object of the Inquirers was to ascertain the names
of tlle officers whose pressing financial needs render them open to temptations by the espionage agents. The
Hamburg inquirers covered their
tracks so cunningly thai they are not
traceable. The Simmoiids agency has
given the fullest particulars to the
llrliish authorities who are investigating.
The Standard adds that a Herman
firm recently paid $250 to Becure a
copy of the plans and specifications
of a British tender accepted for tho
construction of gas and electrical
supplies to un Knglish provincial
town, while a German clerk whom a
large lirm of Knglish contractors had
i mployed, disappeared after the com-
pletlon of a big coastal contract, the
details of which work he undoubtedly

Mystery of Disappearance
of Nicholas F. Bester
Solved Yesterday.
Left  Home  on   February 23���Leaves
Widow and  Five  Young
Children.
When tl c body of Nicholas Francis
Bester was taken from the icy waters
of the Fraser river yesterday morning about 10:30 o'clock another mystery of the disappearance of a citizen of New Westminster was solved.
It vvas on the morning of February
23 that Mr. Bester last left his home
at 1014 Edinburgh street. He left for
the purpose of purchasing gome feed
for his horses and since that time
his wife and five children, all under
the age of twelve years, have waited
for his return, but have waited in
vain. Mr. Bester. after leaving his
home spoke only to one person, as far
as can bo learned and that was Dr
McEwen, who he called on. Dr. Mc-
Ewen stated at the inquest, last night
that the man acted a little queer and
was a little eratlc in his conversation. It is not thought that he met
his death by suicide, however, and
after the evidence had all been'heard
the coroner's Jury last night returned
a verdict of accidental death by
drowning.
The body was recovered floating in
mid stream opposite Gilley Bros.*
wharf by a man named Smith, who
towed the body ashore and notified
the police. It was removed to Bowelfs
undertaking parlors and Dr. McQuarrie immediately ordered an inquest
which was held last night.
Deceased was about 45 years of
age and was by occupation a contractor. He resided on Edlngburgh street
and leaves a wife and live children
I to mourn his lose. The eldest child
is about twelve years and the youngest six years of age.

MAYOR BAXTER AND TACT.
On his return from thc hearing before the Dominion
grain elevator commission at Winnipeg Mayor Baxter, of
Vancouver, gave out an interview to the Terminal City
press which was inpregnated with his worship's usual
tact. Ignoring the sentiments expressed by some of the
heaviest ratepayers in the city which honored him by
choosing him as its first magistrate, the occupant of the
mayoralty chair at the Vancouver city hall went out of
his way to knock the Fraser river as a deep sea port. Unfortunately for Mayor Baxters' judgment and idea of
manliness, the time has passed when attacks of such a nature have any effect. The Fraser is too well and favorably
known at Ottawa to be so easily condemned.
But the most deplorable side to the affair is found in
the fact that the chief magistrate of Vancouver should
belittle himself by the expression of sentiments credited
to him in the printed interviews. It is but a few d?ys
since Vancouver and New* Westminster business men
travelled together over the Fraser river channel and saw
for themselves what immense possibilities lay in that wa
terway. On that occasion men from both cities, men who
represented great interests, expressed the common view
that the two towns were on the same highway <f progress.
In the language of one of the heaviest property owners
of Vancouver, "We should all pull together to develop the
lower mainland of British Columbia as it should be developed."
New Westminster citizens can well afford to ignore
the opinions attributed to Mayor Baxter and give their attention to the bigger idea embodied in the "pull together"
speeches which characterized the recent business men's
gathering on the steamer Paystreak.
The grain elevator question is only one item in the j
big scheme. If the commission which has the matter in
hand does its duty the selection of a site will lie made on
the grounds of merit and backyard arguments advanced
in the heat of local enthusiasm will be taken at their face
value. In the Fraser river this city has a tremendous asset, important enough to render the citizens of New Westminster independent of any sentiment but that of "The
greatest good to the greatest number."

The   Army   Annual   Bill.
"The army annual l.ill is one of the
nio.-it   important,   historically   one   of
tii** most Interesting, among the sta-
j tute.*, by whicli the realm is governed.
| lt hail ils origin at a period when the*
army   was   regarded   as  the   perso.i.il
' appanage of tiie sovereign and might,
line .lecked,  lie  used   in  furtherance of
dynastic policy     Its object is as tim
pie as lt is effective.    It ordains tha:
'the  keeping  of a  standing atmy   is
against the law. unless it be with the
ce iiseiit of parliament '    Palling  such
consent the army, as an authorised,
disciplined,   paid   body,  censes  to  ex
1st   in   the   United   Kingdom  on   Apr.l
80.    In other parts of the British dominions It  expires on July SI.  In or-
| dinary  times  this  stutdy   relic  of  in :
'irretrievable past Is  treated  with  ihe
' respect   due   old   age   and   honorable*
] tradition.     The   hill   passed   through I
all   Its   stages   as  a   matter   of   form. ,
| One  exception   in   modern   times   ru' ]
fled  the cours,> of its dignified  -xisi* j
I ence. Thirty-five years ago the lrlsh
I Nationalist members,  under the lead*
I ership of   Parnell. discovered   in   the
hardy  annual   a   useful   accessory   m
! their organized game of obstruction,
| These parliamentary sapeurs, to whom
] nothing  was   sacred,    insisted     upon
treating the army bill as an ordinary
controversial measure, moving umend
ment after amendment on successive'
clauses.    The  long  wrangle  had   the*
| popularj though unpremeditated, cm
elusion of the abolition of flogging in
j tin   army.
"In   the  session  of   1S7!��,  while  the
Irish   Nationalists  succeeded   In  (heir
primary   Object   of   obstructing   busi-j
ness  in   the   house of  commons,   lliey j
I beat   In   vain   against   the   bars   that!
I protected   the  army  annual   bill,   it i
svaa p:iss'*(i    by    a    majority against
which Parnell flung his full force of
Ji   men and  was hurried through by I
| the house of lords, which had looked I
i on  the noisy scenes in the commons
��� with indignation and disgust.    In oth i
I er   times  and   altered   circumstances.!
J the   result   will   be   different,   lf   the
fighting  men  in  the  lords  finally re- ;
! boIvc  to throw  out  the army  annua'
bill   nothing   can   avert    the    consequences.    On  the 30th of  April  next
the statute law  will come into opera
tion. and on May morning the   nation I
will   wake   to   find   itself   wl'hout    a j
standing  army.
Compel   Dissolution.
"The avowed object of these t.'icticr.
is  to compel  an early dissolu'.ie>n  of j
parliament.     It   will   prove   effeceual.
But  there  will   be certain  Important [
preliminaries, Under the operation of i
the parliament act, the home rubs bill !
antl   the   Welsh   church   disestablish- j
ment bill  will  both  have been added i
to the statute book. The abolition nf
plural   voting  cennot   be    accomplish- j
ed   in   the  life of  the  present  purlin- :
ment    The drawback  is only apparent.     Whilst   clause   2  of   the   parliament act requires that a bill coming
under its aegis must have been pa^s-
e-ii by the house of commons in three
successive    Bessiono    and    been   rejected by the house cf lords in each,
it does not require that these terms
shall   be completed   In   the same  parliament.    On the contrary, it distinctly  stipulates,  "whether the same'  parliament   or   not."   Assuming,   us   ministers  do,   with   Increased  confidence
In   view   of  the  threatened   action   of
the lords in respect of the army bill
that they will be reinstated in power
aftir   a   general   election,   the   plural
voting bill  will  be Introduced  in  thi
earliest   weeks   of  the   new   seasion,
and added to the statute book before
Its  close.    Thus,  as  far as concerns
thai   measure,   whose   relntroduction
on Thursday was hailed with frantic
cheering by  the    ministerialists.    r.o
time will be lost by the Intervention
oi  a dissolution  \el June.
Refuse Second Reading.
"At the moment public attention Is
concentrated upon the prime- minis-
tee's "suggestions" for the amendment
of the home rule bill, to be communicated to the house on Monday night.
Their importance is fatally minimized
by the appearance of this ne",v cloud
in the political horizon. If the allege '.
in some quarters openly avowed, intention to throw out bhe army nun mil
bill be carried into effect, the future
course of the home* rule bill is plain
ami unalterable. Hampered by the
restrictions of -his own act the premier cannot amend it in the bouse of
commons, That is a privilege rt >���:������.������
"il for the* lords. Obviously, If they
resolve to take the extreme' ste*;, of
disbanding the army, they are nol i
liki ly to dally with a measure* that
is at the root of the whole business
They will refuse it a second reading,
and it will straightway become law
with its admitted imperfection- The
Bame procedure awaits the Welsh
church bill, which in similar eir
cuinstances, may not profit by furth
er amendment in committee of the
house* of commons.
'���Like    Ixird   Lansdowne,   bis   majesty's  ministers    have*   taken   u* :.   ol
the threat to reject the army annual
bill, and some of them, old Campaign
ers   In  electoral   warfare,  regard   the j
prospect   with    pleased anticipation '
'I here will bo no hurry about 'bringing
In the army bill. The last ten days in J
April   will   serve   the  purpose of  pro- :
vldlng the lords  with  the full oppor
'unity  to deial   with it.    Should  they. I
upon reflection, pass it, affairs will
un forward as hitherto ordained. A detachment of tin* Quarda will march
down to the city every night to protect the coffers of the I'ank of Bug-
land, and all other ordinary functions
of the army will run the usual course.
As tor parliament, it vvy 1 sit on, us
a longed, into the spring of next year.
Shciild the lords take the critical step
attributed to tiieir intention of an
influential. liiiln*rio dominant, SCO-
tion of their body, parliament will be
dissolved at a date convenient to the
purposes of the ministry in connection
with home rule and Welsh church (lis-
establishment, date that will be reach-
e d on or about midsuinini*r day."
Give Unionist Views.
The  Observer editorially observes:
"Since Sir Henry Lucy deals with a
matter that we have refrained, for
good reasons, from touching. It Is
very necessary to state accurately the
Unionist  side  of   the  question.
"Our veteran and valued contributor. In foreshadowing very grave developments and predicting a general
election in June, is doubtless as authoritatively informed as usual upon
the government view.
"It must be thoroughly understood,
however, that any action taken by the
house of lorels wlll be taken responsibly, after the fullest ronsidiyation,
and only as a last means of preventing the desperate policy of placing
such a measure as the home rule bill
OH tie' statute book without appeal
to tiie people.
"But the strongest possible committee has been appointed to study in
all Its bearings the resources still remaining to the house of lords under
lhe constitution. As to the army annual hill, we desire to qualify Sir
lle'iiry Lucy's remarks by a most Important distinction. There are various
ways of dealing with the army bill
without disbanding a man or Interrupting in. the slightest degree the
routine of  its  training.
"The peers will act, If at all, only
te, prevent civil war ln Ulster by forbidding any attack upon the covenanters until an appeal has been made
to the people."

In proportion to population South
Australia 'last season had the largi st

That the Unionists have been plotting for sonic time to use the army as
a lever for thwarting and over-throwing the government is indicated by an
article In a recent issue of the Observer. It is by He nry Lucy, M. I'., a
parliamentary correspondent for -half
a century, who is in the confidence of
the cabinet, and was written previous
to the events of ihe past week. He
also forecasts a dissolution, the possibilities Of which have doubtless been
increased In the last few days. The
article, which at this juncture is particularly Illuminating,  follows:
"From time to time during the past
two years it lias, with perhaps Ure-
some Iteration, been inslsteel in this
column thai parliament will set Into
the spring of next year.    In the ordi
nary course of events, including full
consideration of the position of the
home rule bill, that conviction n
mains unshaken, and seems assured of
justification. Hut within the last
week events have taken an unparalleled turn that promises drastic cim
elusion, The resolute and energetic
section of the peers known to their
political opponents as Dlehards pro;
pose to put a spoke in the chariot
wheelB of the ministry hy a procedure
more* daring and drastic even than
their historic achievement of throwing out Mr. Lloyd George's budget.
Their proposal is either to reject on
second reading th'- army annual hill
or so deal with it In committee as to
ensure* its Withdrawal. Report of the
alleged   intention   lias   been   brought

I Say use ROYAL, STANDARD and not just "flour" because, the best Is the cheapest In the long run. I mean by
that there will be second helpings a'plenly because
ROYAL STANDARD GOES FARTHER. And' the* quality
well, just bake pancakes WITH    and    then    WITHOUT

IN  JAPAN   19V  CALLED
"THE YEAR OF THE TIGER"
The tiger is at present occupying a
particular place in the regard of the
.lapane.se. ln Japan. 1914 is greeteel as
the year of the tiger, and everything
associated with this creature is very
much   in   request.     Pictures  introducing "stripes"  in fantastic fashion  are
very  much   in  evidence, and  the new
year cards almost universally showed
a  tiger bringing greetings. Trade has
been' greatly   influenced   by   this   special veneration for the tiger. Pictures
of   tin*   tiger   are   being   Imported   In
large  numbers and  it is safe to  say
that every household In Japan has now-
some tiger picture conspicuously displayed.    In   the  wealthier houses  the
beautiful     silk     or     velvet     screens
adorned with  wonderful tiger designs
have been brought out of the treasure
houses   and   given   places   of   honor,
while    ornaments    which    harmonize
with   these   were   taken   from   their
places  of  seclusion  and   utilized     to
give tiie special and artistic effect desired for the year ef the tiger.
This year is regarded as favorable
for Hie 'coronation of the emperor._ a
ceremony which takes place in November, the month of the rabbit. The
Japanese have reckoned the years in
a cycle of 12 from time immemorial.
The years are named in the following
order: Rat. ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon,
snake, horse, sheep, monkey, fowl, dog
and boar. The months are also given
the same nanies. Japan celebrates
the new year mtioh more thoroughly
than any other country, even surpassing Se-otland in this respect, ln Japan
three days are needed to honor adequately the new year, and the rejoicings are In many places continued for
a week al least.

One night a police patrol found an
old   country   woman   lying   asleep   at
the corner of a street.    The constable
asked  her  why   she  was  sleeping  in
the  open   air.     She  replied   that  she
bad no money with which to secure a
night'B   shelter.     But   the   policeman
found  a  ten-yen note on   her  person
carefully   wrapped   up^ in   paper.   She
said   Bhe   could   not   and   would   not

Abbot  Regarded  Sacred.
The lord abbot is regarded by such
people as an incarnation of Buddha���
sacred   and   inviolate.     Some     years
ago, the abbot visited a certain northern city,  where the  Honganjl  has    a
'arge   number  of   earnest     followers.
The abbot and his suite were passing
down a street in  rikishas.    A contin* j
gent   of  soldiers,  out   on   drill,   were
coming up the way     Immediately the I
soldiers recognizee! the abbot, military (
discipline could no longer be enforced, j
The entire company of soldiers went
down on their knees in profound reverence.
However, Count Otani is a deme>
crat. and does not like the atmosphere
of convention and superstition which
surrounds him as the lord abbot of
an influential Buddhist sect. He was
educated in England, traveled extensively In Europe and speaks two
or three European languages.    He is

went to the door and after knocking

bot Otani is also very fond of outdoor   the city corporation, coupled with the
life.    He takes a great interest in various forms of western outdoor sports
now becoming increasingly popular in
Japan.
Brother Sent to Games.
Last year he sent his brother, Koin*
yo Otani, who ls heir to the pontificate, to participate In the Olympic
games held in Osaka. The future abbot took part in a Marathon race, under Incognito, and successfully won
the prize.
Being a man of such disposition, it
is generally admitted that he is not
suited to the role of an abbot, but at
the same time, it is also conceded
that Count Otani is one of the most
remarkable personalities in Japan. He
is a born leader and a "masterful
man." The present activity of the
West Honganji in the spheres of religion, philanthropy and social reform
are largely due to his untiring energy
and capable leadership. He deprec-
attes the life of solitude attendant upon the career of an old-time Buddhist
abbot. He likes activities and vigorous undertakings.
It is this love of "the fight" that
prompts him to carry on an aggressive
relglotis campaign both at home and
abroad, in the progation of the honganji doctrines of BiMdhism. He is
convinced that If Buddhism Is to survive in this day and generation of ad-     r>	
vance and liberal ieteas, it must have j general tonic effect upon   the
ntw  leaders, capable of commanding | ���4���0,vV.��,i;i��bw.*h***,m   ThpvViRVfl
the confidence of people, who woulud
no   longer   be   satisfied   with   conventional interpretations of the Buddhist
teachings.
For this purpose he founded schools
and universities for the education of
young priests. These men are now
coming to the f" nt, riser to spread
the gospel of Buddha among the rising generations of Japan. lt is a
fact, however, that Buddhism In .Tei

without a miss, dropped bis 41st bird
and then went 55 without a miss,
which Is some record for an amateur
hereabouts and beats the .'{9 straight
set up by Hill Maiden last season.
There was a good turnout at the
traps and some good scores were
made considering tbe fact that none
of the boys had been practicing for
tbe  annual   tournament  of   the  club.
At the conclusion of the regular
shoot four of the men went after the
double's, and for a while there was a
pretty race between Hill Turnbull
anil Hill Maiden fen- high honors, the
latter finally winning out solely because Long Hill sbol at two more
birds and unfortunately missed tbem
both.
Two new shooters, Oeorge Qreen
and 0, K. Hrown. did some excellent
Shooting and they will bear watching
ii the* future. Numerous prizes were
donated by the merchants of the city
and all of those who attended 'he Hood
shoot had- a good time and the club i ditlu ,|
had one of the most successful annual
tournaments in its history. Following

There was a good turnout ut the

made considering the fact that none
of the boys had been practicing for
the  annual   tournament   of   the   club.
At the conclusion of the regular
shoot four of the men went after the
double's, and for a while there was a
pretty race between Hill Turnbull
and Mill Maiden for high honors, the

a bargain with either, wblcb would
bave given them fair participation in
the administration. It is not generally known thai what lias happened in
Boutb Africa, far from reviving racial
antagonism as between Hoer and
British, ha> done more to dispel such
antagonism than anything that could
have  happened   in   that   country.
It means the end of the Boon as a
separate entity, as, during tbe disturb
ance. they and their Hrltish and other
white labor brethren have stood to*
gather and made common cause
against both the cosmopolitan mine
owners and the government of the
Soutb Afrrlcan union by the South
African, or so-called Boer, party.
A gnat many 'if Botha's supporters
were meftnbers of both the miners and
railway's men's unions and doubtless
ia Hie* future they will be found supporting labor candidates Of their own
for the le gislature. Already Oeneral
HertiSOg, the Doer leader, and his wing
en the South African (Hoer) party
have championed the labor men in
parliament, and are, of course-, bidding for the' votes of the latter.
The reci nt events in the South African Union have been epoch making
and new alignments will undobtedly
result which will eventually obliterate
racial lims as between whites, in the

\t a meeting, held In furtherance
ol ihe Bcheme, which was attended
by the Earl of Lic.hfie'lei. Sir Melville
Beachcroft, Lady Alice Ashley, and
many others. Interested In social work,
Mr. Macmlllan, at whose house* tin*
mil ting was held, saiel that in conjunction with the National Organization
of (lids' clubs, they hael embarked
on a comprehensive scheme to try to i
meet a crying need.
They had the sympathy anel support
of large employers who. for their own |
part,  were  able  to  provide-   tor  their
own employees.    They  were also encouraged   by   a   letter   written   from
tii" home office by Miss Squire, Ben lor j
lady inspector of fuctories.  to tiie* effect that   inspectors in the course of i
their work had abundant evidence of
ihe* necessity  for proper dining  and
rest rooms for girls.
An  immediate start, be  explained,
would  be  made by instituting dining
and   rest   rooms  at   Knigbtsbridge,   a j
typical area, because there was such a j
greal  number of small dress makers
and mlllim ra, employing about 1,200
women and girls, for whom practically i
no  accommodation   for   dinner     was
made.    The scheme would bo self-supporting, and  the sum  needed to start
was    only    about     ��1,000,    which he
did not consider was at all  a  large
one.

Lcndon,  April   10.- The   underlying
cause of the recent labor disturbance
I in South Africa is not due to any an-1
| tipalhy of the Boers towards the cos* I
j mopolttan element engaged In mining, j
i On  the contrary,  since* the war,  and I
j especially since the I'nion government
i came   into   existence,   both   Generals
| Botha and Smuts have' co-operated for
\ political   purpose.?,   first,  with   miners,
through their leaders, and later  with
���t thc mine* owners.
Since the war a  very large' number
1 'if impoverished   Boers have gone*    to
work  in the mines, anel the same  Is
true,  of  the  railway  service*,  and,   in
fact, it Is safe to say that at least one*
1 half   of   the   railway   men   are   South
| Africans, principally  Boers, so-called
I They   represent   at   present    a     very
* large, if not the predominant ell m<'nt
, of the two labor unions whose  leaders, liain and Poutsma,. were deported
by   Botha's  government.
|     Poutsma Is a native of Holland, and
i Main of Kngland. IBoth were' labor lead
ers before the war and sided with thai
Boers.     Bain   was   something   of   an
agitator  and   for  a   time  had   to   flee
from   his   wrathful   countrymen,   w ho I
looked upon  htm as a traitor. There
is no doubt that the Labor partj    did I
for a time benefit from Its practical
alliance with General  Botha and   ills
party,   and   supported   Ills   candid ites
for the legislature with iiie*ir votes
Labor Party  Plays Politics.
Recently, however, the Labor party,
guided by Mr. Creswell, has been playing politics of its own, and since  the
political break between General Botha
and General llertzog, leaders respectively   of   the   Transvall   ami   Orange
Free State Boers, causing a considerable   cleavage   in   the  South   African
(Boer) party, the Labor parly expects
to  gain   the  balance of power  at   the
next   election.     It  is  probable    that
Botha, finding his position untenable
through  the defection of Hertzog  and
his   followers,   bas   been   courting   'lie
Unionist paity through the mine-owners who control it.
This did not suit the* plans of his
former allies, the Labor leaders, who
saw their first real chance of gaining
a substantial voice in the government
threatened by the combination of
Botha and the mine owners, and so. by
coercion, through the general si like,
tried to thwart this new movement.
Oeneral Botha and General Smuts
are Bhrewd politicians, but they are*
diBt'nctly of the soldier type of Btates
man. and this is another reason why
Hn* labor leaders left the country so
unceremoniously. There is no doubt
that the labor leaders greatly blundered, as they do every time they resort to coercion, by attempting forceful methods on two pretty forceful
men, unafraid and willing to accept
responsibility.
Patience Called a Need.
If the Labor men had been patient
a little longer, and waited for the filial   break   between   Botha  and   Hert-

When Summer
Stops the Swing
Most of us can remember the school lesson in the
law of accumulated motion���momentum.
If you exert a pound of pressure against a man in
a swing, you'll start him moving slowly "to and
fro." If you continue to exert a pound of pressure against him every time the swing makes a
trip, you'll soon have him going so high that he
almost turns the whole circle. If you stop pushing, the momentum will die out and the swing
come to rest at "dead centre."
Winning trade follows the same natural laws.
Advertisements are the force behind the swing of
public favor. Each new advertisement increases
the momentum. Finally, the accumulated force
of these numerous impulses swings indifference to
the buying point.
lf you stop Advertising, you lose momentum.
The moral of which is:
Don't stop the business swing in Summer.
Keep adding the pounds of Advertising
pressure.
Advice rrganling your advrrtiifog problems is available through any

Hiding evidence. Magistrate Jay was   m|,eg anU      popu|aUon esllmaled at
Victoria, April 10.- When the po-|
lice called at the house of Qeorgel
Biarns last night in response to an I
urgent call from his wife, they found i
the bead of the house under tlle bed.!
He   was  taken   into  custody   and  ap
moved to comment that "this is an
unfortunate ease of matrimonial infelicity," and dismissed the charge with
a warning to the defendant.
The alleged assault took place last
night iu the Beams household on
Herald street about 8:15. According
to the evidence of Mrs. Beams Bhe
bad been house-cleaning when Beams
and his brother came home for dinner An argument followed about the
brother staying In the house. Words
passe d, and Mrs. Beams admitted
that she was going to throw ,th>* teapot at her spuose, but was deterred
by the defendant, who came across
the room and stayed ber. Then, according to the evidence of the complainant. Be-arns threw his wife* down
In the* chair ami choked her with bis
hands on her throat. To prove her as
sertion, Mrs. Beams pointed out the
marks on her neck to the magistrate-.
Beams had afterwards thrown her out
of the dining room. Shi' stattd further that Beams said: "1 warn you
that if you come back hore there will
be blood and brains around here."
In his own behalf Beams took the
witness stand and said that his wife
had an uncontrollable temper. On
Monday night last she had taken the
carving knife to him, and he had a
cut finger as witness of it. This
Mrs.  Beams emphatically denied.
t'ontinuiiig. accused said his wife
was subject to brain storms and was
not responsible for what she did. He
had continually to speak to his wife
about the language she employed.
"Tin-re is no limit to it," he commented.

"If any person particularly wishes
to visit Afghanistan he can get into
the country only by interesting the
Ameer personally in tbe object of,
his visit, which, however, it may be'
found very difficult to do." Mr.
Baker says. "No commercial traveler can get into Afghanistan unless
the Ameer might be induced to take
an interest in bis particular line of
business. Even tben it would not
be found convenient or advantageous to undertake a trip into Afghanistan unless the Ameer would personally guarantee one's comfort and
safety and provide a military escort
to Kabul or Kandahar or wherever
else it was desired to go.
"After application bas been made
to the Ameer for a permit, or firman, to visit Afghanistan���and by
having advanced some particularly
potent argument the firman may
perhaps be granted���the deputy
secretary to the Government, if be
deems it wise, will then grant permission to cross the frontier at the
traveler's own risk.
"A regulation letter granting such
permission to a representative of a
business bouse in Bombay, of wblcb

With reference to your letter dated ���, I am directed to Inform you

Vienna, April 10.���The trouble oa
the southern AustroHunganan frontier is being increased by various incidents. The river I'rina, which separates Bosnia from Servia, is dotted by
low-lying Islands, which are not inhabited, as they are partially flooded
at certain seasons of the year. Thia
makes them very fertile, and the
Servian peasants have grown maize
there for generations.
The Bosnian authorities are now trying to enforce the claim of Austria-
Hungary to these islands by arresting;
peasants who are found* trespassing
upon them. The island of Adlze was
the subject of a recent protest made
to the Austrian foreign office by Servia.    Sokie,    Zeleniza    and    Samuro-
wltsch  have also been  the  scene of
incidents.
The   Austro-Hungarian    authorities
are inclined to enforce their claims.
as was seen in the recent incident of
