Tbe campaign, the mayor said,
had ln some ways been a strenuous
oue, and in some ways a joke. Tbo
vote polled he regarded as a good
one. The people with a grouch always turned out to poll, but those
who were satisfied witli things were
passive voters. The small total \ote
showed that the. bulk of the people
were it&tisfled with the way matters
were being handled.
"However," he aald, "w�� have
been returned, and although the asa*
jority is not aa large aa I should
have liked to see it, it shows that
the electors endorse the policy of the
past two years, and that outlined for
tue years to come. The only disappointment I feel Is that the people
have not been prepared to accept the
whole truth. I took the manly stand
of pointing out where I stood on certain tilings, which was a difficult
t. lng to do."
The mayor then turned to the future. "You will see inaugurated In

40 years, weie  you not?" he usked.
"Ves, sir."
"You found lt, at the beginning, a
small business?"
���'Yes, somewhat"
"And you left lt a business dominating the business of the world?"
"Yea, In steel."
"In the early years you found the
business disintegrated?"
"And you left a business greatly
Improved, greatly extended, , with all
ita attributes, the ore, the transportation, the coal and other facilities
assembled and practically dominated
by one great corporation ?"
"Admirably stated," said Mr. Carnegie.
"Haa there been the aame grade
of progress in the steel business since
the United States Steel corporation
got hold of the industry?"
Partnerships and Corporations.
''1 do not believe that any corporation can engage ln business   like   a
i partnership. When we were partners
I felt that we could run around cor-

London, Jan. 11.���Voluminous telegrams are being exchanged between
Premier Yuan Shi Kai and Wu Ting
Fang, republican minister of justice,
and there is, growing pressure that
will force the throne to abdicate without waiting for the decision of the
national convention, saya a dispatch
to the Times from Peking. The republicans, it is understood, have
agreed to meet Yuan Shi Kal half
way in the matter of the terms on
Which the national conventions shall
be called. While notblng of a definite
nature has been given out officially,
it is understood that the recognitions
of the republicans as belligerents by
any one power would be Immediately
effective in seeming a settlement
satisfactory to both parties.
Wu Ting Fang and Tang Shao Yi
have had a conference on the subject
and their report is expected to be

States, favored such a course. Britain,
however, declined to intervene in any

Three of the old council have been

Alphabetical    Indexes,  cros3   references and card catalogues make every
clipping  instantly  available.      These
clippings are either nasted ini books
or else kept In strong envelopes. The
envelope  system   haa  the   advantage
that In  a pinch  the clippings  themselves can be used as copy and sent
direct to the  compositor.    The  book
system  has  the  advantage  that   the
clippings are seldom lost.    For these
clippings are like collections of rare
editions���once  gone  they  can   never
be replaced.    Hence the most elaborate  precautions  are taken   to  safeguard   them.     Every   clipping   taken
out is charged   up to the man   who
get3 it.   If the clipping ls not returned within a certain time the offending reporter is fined.   Where the book
system is used, every book taken out
is charged to the taker, Just as books
are In a public library.    In one New-
York  newspaper   office   the   mo'rgue
staff sits inside of a steel cage, like
i tellers in a bank.   The morgue Itself
I is made of sheet iron as a precaution
1 against flames.    Easily the most pre-
| clous thing In a newspaper office is
this collection of clippings; and when-
j ever a newspaper office takes flre the
,cry that flrst goes up ls:    "Save the
I morgue!"
[     Unlike  Its   prototypes,  the  rogues'
' gallery,   the   hall  of   fame   and   the
| Who's Who, the morgue Is not exclu-
| she.   On the contrary, it is as demo-
I cratlc as  the  grave.     It is the one
I place in the world outside of the Unl-
I ted States Constitution where all men
| are eciual.   Naturally, then, the standard of selection for morgue items la
a  broad one.    To get into the  morgue it is not necessary to be either
famous or Infamous. To object to the
flavor of your  prunes and  in  consequence be ejected from   a restaurant
will answer the purpose quite us well.
Anything that direct public attention
to one serves the ends of the morgue
keeper.      He  considers  that   almost
any item of news that is worth col-
.ecting  and   printing   is   also   woith
keeping.    Like the Irishman with thc
sliillalah, who hit a head wherever he
saw one, the morgue keeper clips a
name   wherever   he   finds   one,   and
stores It up against the day when Its
owner  shall   marry,  be  divorced,  bo
arrested or die.
The Choice of Material.
Nothing would seem easier, at flrst
sight, than the task of clipping and
filing morgue Items. Yet, like many
another apparently easy task, the
work of keeping a newspaper morgue calls for rare intelligence and
Judgment. A morgue has physical
limitations as to size, and the keeper
of the morgue must put into it only
those Items that are likely to prove
of use. It is occording to how well
he distinguishes the useful from the
useless that he Is of value. The wider
his experience, the more etxended
his editorial training, the better will
be his work. He must have a wide
acquaintance with names and things.
He must have the sixth sense of the
He must have the sixth Btnse of the
trained newspaperman which makes
him see news where none ls apparent,
lie must exercise continual vigilance
against the misplacing of clippings;
and he must have a memory like flypaper, to which every news item
Htlcks fast. For in such a complicated reference library &3 a nevs^a-

"abominations" common to the trading cities of the Mediterranean which
fell under the Divine wrath. It was
said by Ezeklal of Tyre that "Judah
and the land of Israel, they were thy
merchants, they traded in thy market."
As then, so now with the Jew and
the rest of us. He will be trader or
agriculturist, as conditions most favor. And when agricultural conditions are favorable enough to check
the Yankee drift to the cities, the
Jew will be found drifting to the
farm.���New York World.

Sir    Joseph    Hooker,    an    Intimste
Friend of Darwin, Had Long and
Honorable   Record.
London, Jan. 11.���Scientific men
throughout the world will bear with
regret tbat Britain's "Grand Old Man
ot Science" is no more. Sir Joseph
Dalton Hooker, O. M., P. R. S.. LL. U.,
pi luce of botanists, veteran Antarctic ,
explorer, ex-Prealdent of the Royal''
Society, director for twenty years 'ot
Kcw Gar Jens, intimate friend of Dat j
wiu, passed away ln his 96th year.
In Sir Joseph Hooker we lose not only
a picturesque figure, but also a link
with the past which the memory of
no otber man of science could sup-1
ply. In his early days Thomas Young
wa< living, the hardly recognized author of the true theory of light, Lyell
was laying the foundations of scientific geology, Faraday was Humphrey
Davy'a assistant at the Royal Institution, Dai win wus little known; Huxley eight years, Lord Kelvin seven
>��m! h. and Clerk Maxwell fourteen
yeai* ma Juniors, were unheard of;
and Joule had not promulgated tho
doctrine of tbe Conservation of En-
eigy. Hooker lived on froft the age
cf John Dalton, with hls great theory
ef chemical combination, to that of
tbe Curies and the wonders of rad-1
mm. His life ran nearly parallel with
the century., for he waa born at Hales-
wofth, In Suffolk, as far back as June
30, 1X17. London maintained that no
st-udy���inat even theology���bad such
au influence in making men moral as
that of plants. It would seem to be
nearly as effective In lengthening as
in .purifying life. Almost to the very
end 'of his long tale of yeara oar vet*
trau botanist retained vigor of mind
and body, and almost to tbe last con-
timied his studies. Hooker's father,
Sir William Jackson Hooker, was also a famous botanist. To him more
than to any other man the British
public owe Kew Gardens, that lovely
spot, where the Jaded Londoner
comes face to face with the Flora of
the world, and wbere the man of
science finds a herbarium unsurpassed in any land. While Kew Gardens
are preserved, William and Joseph
Hooker will need no monument. The
late Sir Joseph was educated at the
Lniversity of Glasgow, wbere Jila
father was Regius t'rofesscr of Bot-
an>. and where the son took the decree of M. u. in 1839. Almost immediately he accomplished notable work.
hooker was an intimate fiiend of
Dai win. It may also be said that lie
hel..��:d to discover the famous naturalist. In great part it was due to Sir
Joseph Hooker and Sir Charles Lyell
tlut. Darwin's work was made known.
.Modest sol that he was, when he
lea. ned that, simultaneously with himself. Alfred Russell Wallace had Eent
ip the Llnnuean Society papers pro-
Claiming virtually the aame theory as
his own, he "proposed to withdraw bis
historic contribution. But the botanist
nnd Uie geologist, who knew what a
rich store of material their friend had
collected for over twenty years in
BUppoi t Of the grandest theory at .organic life, would hear of no sucli.nan-
sense, and In the end tbe papers of
tne two co-discove.ers, who were!
never rivals, were read at tlie same
meeting of the society. The "Origin
of Siecies" was saved, incidentally.,
one may remark, it was much to the
glory oi this tight little island to hoid
within it at the time the four such
cognate inquirers as Darwin, Wallace,
Lyell, and Hooker, plus a phlk>so;iher
like Herbert Spencer, who had in part
anticipated tbe naturalists by his
theory of "Survival or the Finest."
Darwin's epoch-making worn was
published ln 185V, and tbe world
knows wltb what scientific incredulity
.and theological acrimony it waa received. Ten years later, when Sir
J. D. Hooker presided at Norwich,
over the meeting of the British Association, he boldly took the Bide, as
Huxley and Lyell and a few more
had already done, of Charles Darwin,
asd advocated the recognition of hla
hypothesis of natural selection an 1
heredity as the best means of advancing the sciences of biolopy.
How fully has that lecommenda-
tlon been Justified! The unl.y of
life on the globe for all time is now
an established truth with all men who
know the evidence. To the end H >ok-
er remained a close friend of Darwin,
and- one ot the latest anl most remarkable of the distinguished zoologist's contributions to the   study of
organic life waa made at Kew. It
was known that a small number of
planta, such aa Venus' fly-trap, exhibit movements which seem to be
voluntary. Darwin suggested that
experiments should be made with Dlo-
naea and other planta of that character to see whether they would dia
criminate between the flea or other
insects and substances unsuitel to
their digestive organa. Hooker made
the trial by dropping Into tbe plant
bits of cheese, steel-filings, and the
like, the result being that the little
vegetable creature rejected the proffered bribes wltb as much contumely as an animal might have done.
Why? Ay, there's the riddle. More
points than one are there where what
we suppose to be sentient animal and
unconscious plant life are strangely
similar. The realm of insectivorous
plants is a fascinating study. At the
Jubilee of Darwinism two years ago,
Sir Joseph Hooker was one of the
recipients, with Wallace and Sir Ray
Lankester, of the Darwin medal.
In June, 1890, Sir Joseph Hooker
unveiled at Oxford a statue of Darwin, presented to the univeisity by
Professor Poulton, and In doing so
made some references to the great
naturalist, two of which werauat
quote. First he recalled that jnst as
be was about to sail on hla Antarctic expedition (be father of Sir
Charles Lyell lent Sir Joseph ti.e
proof sheets of a work that was coming out, which we know today as
"The Vteyage of the Beagle," by
Charles Darwin. At onoe he saw the
greatness of that work. He toll his
Oxford audience:
"At ttiat particular time I was engaged upon engrossing hospital
duties, and slept with the proofs under my .pillow that I might at once,
on awaking, devour their contents.
Tbey impressed me profoundly, I may
say despairingly, with the genius cf
the writer, the variety of bis acquirements, the keenness of his powers of
observation, and the lucidity of his
Hooker confessed that from that
time Darwin became to him an Inspiration.
Tbe second reminiscence Is of even
greater Inteiest. It is notorious that
Darwin made known bis theory of Natural Selection in 1858. But long befoie that date he was thinking the
matter out. Hooker often weut to
Down to visit bis friend, and tbls is
what he says:
".During my.many visits to Down he
laid before me without reserve, not
only his vast stores of knowledge, but
his mature and immature speculations and theories, describing how
they originated, and dwelling on th^ir
Influence on the progress of his researches. Among these, so long ago
as 1844, was his sketch of "The uii-
gin of Species," wbicb I was the first
to see ot the few friends to whom h*s
ever showed lt.
It was fifteen years later before the
fruit of all this research and tlioasa'a
were given to the world.
The botanical writings of Sir Jo-
w.'h Hooker form a library. In addition to tliose already cited must be
named the "General Plantar uiu," tho
joint production of Sir Joseph aud
Mr. Bentbam, and of which eminent
botanists bave declared that it is a
monumental work, to be compare!
only with those of Linnaeus and Jua-
sieu. Next to his writings and le-
seaiches, and hardly second to them
in .importance, must be placed devotion to Kew Gardens. The Hookers, father and son, have made these
splendid collections and cultures the
admiration of the world of science.
With ceaseless care tbey have become "a centre of scientific botany,
and a means of transmitting to uli
parts of the world plants useful to
mankind." In this respect India and
Our colonies especially, but, ln fact,
nearly all otber lands, have been
jia.le tlieir debtors. And not least,
tne people of tbis great city. Eveu
to .those among them who are not naturalists the things of beauty at Kew
are .a Joy forever.
Sir Joseph Hooker had. received innumerable honors. He was mado
C. B. in 1869, K. C. S. I., 1877. G. C.
S. L, 181)7, and placed in the Older of
Merit on Its establishment in 1907. He
was a member of the Prussian Order
Pour le Meiite. Sir Joseph was twice
married, flrat in 1851, to Frances Harriet, daughter of the Rev. J. S. Hen-
slow, this lady dying in 1874; secondly to a daughter Af the Rev. W. 8. Symonds, and widow of Sir W. Jardine,
Bt. He leaves nix sons and two
daughter. One ef his daughte 8 rair-
iled in 1877 Sir W. Thiselton-Dyec,
F. R. S., also an eminent botanist, for
many yeara assistant director, and
after the retirement of Sir Joseph
Hooker director for ten years of the
Kew Gardens.
Lady Who Cauaed Sensation in London Finally Makea Her Suitor
The marriage took place quietly ln
London recently of tbe Uev. H. A. K.
Hawkins, vicar of Whltewell, near
Malton, Yorkshire, and Lady Constance Foljambe, daughter of the late
and slater of the present Earl of Liverpool. They are now enjoying a
honeymoon ln Paris. The announcement made above provides a romantic and pleasing sequel to an incident
wbich attracted much attention ou
July 3 last, when Lady Constance,
wbo was to be married to Mr. Hawkins at St. Peter's, Eaton Square,
failed to be present at tbe church.
The non-appearance of tbe bride caused a distressing scene ln the church,
j wbere a large anl fashionable party
I bad assembled to witness tbe marriage. Tbe building was well filled,
and altogether there were about 150
friends of the bride and bridegroom
i    No explanation  was given   of the
I disappearance of the bride, but next
day her mother, the Dowager Countess of Liverpool, received a telegram
asking for forgiveness for the anxiety
caused by her absence from the
church. Lord Liverpool de Unei to
give any information beyond saying
that Lady Constance was   safe   and
! well, but tbat she had changed her
mind, and Mr. Hawkins was equally
reticent. On tbe day following, however, July 5, Lord Liverpool taid: "1
regret that I have no information that
II can give beyond saying that I and
eveiy member of my family would be
very glad if the matter could be allowed to rest. It ls only giving intense worry to us all. Tbe subject is
solely, one of private Interest."     The
; happy news now announced is thc
first that has been given to tbe publlc
since that date.
I    The Kev. H. A. K. Hawkins was ed
' ucated at   Chichester   College,   and
'������ Bince  1892  has  been  vicar of  Whit-
' well, of which  the patron  is Sir E.
' A.  H.  Lechmere, and  the   gross   in-
| come of which ls  �� 183, with a population  of  171.    Mr.   Hawkins   is  4S
years of age.      Lady Constance Fcl-
Jambe  is  the  fouith  of   five slaters,
and was born in 1885. Some two vears
ago, while staying at Whll well. Lady
Constance   created  a   sensation    by
climbing, in the company of two other young women, the spire of Whit-
well church, where the Rev. 11. Haw-
.kins officiates.   Tbe spire, which is a
very tall one, bad been in tbe hands
of steeplejacks, and the alvemurous
feat of the three astonished .the villagers.
An inquiry from the Earl of Liverpool elicited the teply that he had
been Informed of the fact of ihe marriage. In the villages of WbUwell and
Kirkham Abbey, where the principals
had lived, few had tbe slightest idea
of the coining event.      Mr. Hawkins
��� officiated   in   the   parish   churcii   cu |
Sunday evening, and left In .a cab im- I
mediately   after ior  Barton  1111,  tti-|
tion to join lhe York train.   On Tues-
day night two letters  were leceiVed

Important  Doings  in   1912���Reciprocity  Disposed  of.
Tennyson saw the world ringing
down the grooves of changes, and as
we look back over the events of the
year we can see the force of the
poet's figure, for as time advances
the world seems to move with increased momentum. We might almost think that the era of "uneventful" years had passed away for ever,
ahd that the only more Important
year than 19X1 will be the year upon
which we have entered. The last
year was the most important- to Can
ada since confederation because' of
the tremendous issues raised by the
question of reciprocity, and the settling of them for'this generation at
least by the people of Canada, says
the Mall and Empire. The coming
of the Duke of Connaught as governor-general was another event whoso
Importance we may not appreciate,
but it is one that future historians
will have reason to frequently dwell
upon, not because of the personality
of the duke, but because of the increased status given to the office of
British    Politics.
In British politics the two most important events have been the retirement of Mr. Balfour and the elevation of Mr. Bonar Law to the leadership of fhe Unionist forces. The
change marks the triumph ln one
party of an Hea, that of Imperial preference and tariff reform. Another
idea finally triumphed In the passage
of the Veto Bill, which takes it out of
the power of the House of Lords to
reject or amend any money bflll, and
leaves it only the power of two years'
delay with regard to any other measure passed by the Commons. The
death of Sir Eldon Gorst and the appointment of Lord Kitchener as Consul-General in Egypt was one of the
shows that public service, frequently  most important of the changes in the

"The most lmpcfrtant news that
���flame over '^tff* ���:' wires yesterday
was that Ml rpelcasse is back at
���the foreign' office Ih Prance. This
fact has a strong bearing on International politics in Europe. Anything
which exercises a strong influence
cn the course of international politics
Jn Europe is something worthy of
consideration at each, any, every political   centre,   in   ithe    Anglo-Saxon
tails are too fresh ln the mind of the
public to warrant recapitulation.
Turkey and China.
In the world of politics the most Important events of 1911 are undoubtedly the war between Italy and Turkey and the Chinese revolution. Both
are now in progress, their outcome
clouded in uncertainty. One thing is
sure, however, and that is the awakening of China. Whether the country chooses for a republic or for a
continuation of the monarchy, a
great stride will have been taken In
the direction of democratic government. The Manchus as a governing
class are doomed. The Persian situation ls Important chiefly because of
its Indirect Influence upon the European balance of power. Russia appears to have strained British sympathy almost to the breaking point,

not because he was born and reared
in a circle in wbich democracy was
rthe hereditary faith, but because, aft-
���er weighing and considering politics
and forms of political government, he
reached conviction on the ground he
mow occupies. Delcasse, democrat,
loves la belle France; his patriotism
Is above suspicion.
'The only circumstance connected
���with his return to power on which
reasons for disquiet may find foot-
aiold, is the primitive inability to forget with which he is credited. Delcasse, it is said, has not yet forgot-
4ne the ignominy of defeat that rested on France after the Franco-Prus-
sian war. The same rumor has it
rthat thp Emperor William of Ger
-many la no whit superior to Delcasse
in this 'particular. ..Each, it is said, is
the pet aversion,$|fto acknowledged
foe, of tho other.   The Emperor haa
months ago Russia lost one of her
greastest statesmen ln Stolypin, who
fell before an assassin's pistol.
European  Changes.
Both Austria and France have had
three premiers in the past year, but
none of the changes produced more
than a local crisis, and attracted little
attention in Europe. Mexico has a
new president in Francis Madero, who
promises to give her the most honest
government the republic has ever
known. In Italy the trial of the Cam
orrists, next to the war with Turkey,
has attracted the greatest attention.
Portugal has a second president, and
the republic appears to be firmly established. In Germany the approaching elections seem likely to be the
most important ever held, and they
may have a definite bearing os German foreign policy. The settling of
the vexed Moroccan question, while it
Indirectly led to trie Turco-ItaUan
War, was an event hailed with general   satisfaction,   since.   It   removed
I one of the most dangerous problems
developed some since last Delcasse , with whlch EuroBean diplomacy has
was chief at the French foreign of ihad to deal with in many years.

Sketch of ths Characteristics of tf*.
Bonar Law.
Randal Charlton in The' London
Daily Graphic has this to say of, (he
Canadian who succeeds Hon. A.WJ*.
Balfour as leader of the Unionist
party in England:
Mr. Bonar Lsw is the man of facts
and figures. He thinks in statistics;
his mind - is a perfect storehouse of
Classified information. He is a person of very sober substance; he understands the application of logical
firineiples to discursive reasoning. He
s one ot the ablest, if not the very
ablest, of tariff reform advocates now
before the country, and incidentally
he is one of the chief hopes of Tory
If the outward semblance of a man
may be accepted as shy sign of bin
intellectual condition it would seem
that Mr. Bonar Law's load of knowledge weighs upon him a little heavily. The furrowed brow, the stern
mouth.with its heavy moustache, the
rather tired, at times openly contemptuous eyes, the general expression of inexpressive fixity, tend to
give the man a certain appearance of
Sourness. One imagines him to b��
impatient of florid arguments, of filigree emotions, of operatic oratory,
and if this is so he must have been
sadly soured bv the tactics employed
by certain of his Opponents'in \hett
efforts to destroy the impression created by his carefully tabulated and
precisely defined presentations of the
case for fiscal reform. He has plenty
of force, a hard force, a grinding force,
that demolishes trumpery arguments
and specious pretentions with a flercp
ancl even bitter irony. He is very resentful of cheap catch phrases which
are set into circulation for party purposes. He is pre-eminently a thinking man, And his one desire is to mako
his audiences think; to secure their
support for his proposals by stimulat-
ing their mental outlook. He will have
no truck with the emotional aspects
o! a case, .with highly-colored phrases.
with fi��ry incitements lo class hatred
or passion. He will never compromise,
never affect a character for the purpose of the moment.
Frankly scornful of all such designs,
hp is never fearful of ruling an audience's temper in just the same way
as he was never fearful of ruffling the
temper of a huge radical majority
which dominated the House of Commons in the late Parliament. He will
always speak what is in his mind in
coldly clear, deliberate outspokenness. He has all the armory of solid
logic at his command, and has no
nee<l to fear an inability to give'lit*
views complete and satisfactory expression.
His effect upon an audience is,.Very
curious. Uhle'ss the meeting is at the
mercy of .organized rowdyism" h^ will
always command a hearing, and generally a quiet hearing, no matter what
may be the shade of political opinion
owned by. the majority of his hearers.
They listen rath��r than cheer, they
are intent on following the se-yexa!
channels of argument. He insists that
his hearers shall think, and some of
them from loose habits of thought and
an intimate acquaintance ttjtb Waters
whose cl*Ui a*��et. is .aa ��-xc��'B<ic��nsl
talent tor vague generalisations and
windy rhetoric, find the process just
as difficult as novel. But he is always quick to perceive when a point
has not been properly assimilated, and
he will pause and force it home with
all the strength of graphic illustration.
He is essentially a man of busjness.
a man of affairs, a man of comrp��rcial
propositions. And his very contemptuous disregard, for all Kfe arts and
crafts of popular posturing and spangled speech, his reserve, his reticent,
his admirably gove-nWl and strictly
disciplined mental Jnree�� are nil attributes that tend to establish Tiini
as a tower of strength in our modern
politics. He is one of the great gun-
in the Unionist artillery; he carrier
the heaviest ammunition and h�� never
hesitates to discharge his shells into
that place of battle where the enemy
are most deeply entrenched, most
strongly flanked, most sturdily disposed. H�� is a man of iron in political
controversy, a man of the highest
mental gifts, of the deepest and moat
perfectly assiaiilatod  knowledge.
Bad Year Fer Cupid?
'Is 1911 an unlucky yar for lover**
The query is suggested by the unusual
number of soeu.y engagements broken
during this year. In the first three
weeks of January five shattered romances were recorded in tbe soei il
columns. After that Hip epidemic
waned until September, when it "recrudesced" with increased virulence
There were no fewer than fight ol
those    sinister    arnouncements    that
"the marriage  between   and 	
will not tnke place," and people are
asking each other what it means.
Of course the matches declared
"off" concern families of some social
distinction, who do hot usually mix
themselves up in breach of promise
cases, so that the rewsona Ior so much
blighting of young lives will never be
generally  known.
A Good Lawyer.
It is said that Miss ChristabM
Pankhurst took up the cause of woman suffrage in England because she
was not allowed to practice law, although she had passed successfully
all the examinations. She has proved
so successful as a leader in the suffrage movement that she would no
doube make an excellent lawyer.
Miner and Mayor.
Th% new Mayor of Mansfield. Eng.,
will be Councillor Thomas Hall, a
miner, who has been for some years
a member of the municipality. He is
a Liberal and a strong trade unionist,
and a few years ago was elected a
justice of the peace. The mayor-elect
is employed 43 a check-weigher at the
Pleasley Colliery.
Men's Women.
Ellen Terry says in her lecture on
Shakespeare's women that when man
writers draw a good woman they draw
a silly one. Helena in "All's Well
That Ends Well." and Julia in "Two
Gentlemen of Verona" she characterizes as doormat women. Miss Terry
considers Imogen the loveliest ol the
characters oi   Shakespeare.
Report  that   President  Contemplates
Offering    Premiership    to
Paris. Jan. 11.���All France today ls
rejoicing over the appointment ot
Theophile Delcasse as minister of
foreign affairs, and all over the republic he is generally regarded as
the "man of the hour."
Following the downfall yesterday of
the Cailleaux cabinet, lt ls believed
almost certain today that the next
premier will be a man ln sympathy
with Delcasse's anti-German policies.
Many express the opinion that Delcasse will be given the premiership.
The chamber of deputies this afternoon adjourned to Tuesday without
talcing any action ln the formation of
a new ministry.
A report that President Fallieres Is
seriously contemplating the appointing of Former Premier Clemenceau
to the premiership could not be con
'firmed today.
In addition to Clemenceau tho
names mentioned today as most like
ly for the new cabinet are M. Bourgeois, Raymond Poincare, M. Miller
and and Former Premier Briand.

The popular impression that the full

almost unanimous pronouncement of
modern scientific investigators against
it. This may be largely due to the
fact that to treat an authority in his

So much of "real interest would attach to thii mission were it merely

and the people of thit unknown corner
of the world that there it tome chance
that its much deeper importance may
for the time be misted at home, sayi
a writer in India. Thit importance
lies in the fact that the Abor expedition is not a m< re punitive or exploratory  mission.
It i�� a well-conceived operation that
falls into its true place only when we
remember that other missions are alto
being despatched to this neglected
frontier, and that its primary and
temporary work it being done. Gen.
eral Bower's column will be engaged
upon its share of an enterprise which
is likely to absorb public attention in
India for some years to come. The
plain (act is that the nebulous character of our Northeast Indian frontier
has long been the cause of some anxiety, and that recent events have
transformed that anxiety into apprehension.
There hat been for four years a
growing pressure unon our Northern
and Eastern Himalayan territories.
Nepal can look after itself. For 8ik-
kim we have long been responsible.
Bhutan we have taken under our care
during the last two years. But our
vigilance is useless unless it is complete. Our as yet unmarked frontier

between Indian and China must be

There is yet titre to do it ��� but
there is only just time. Of course, at
every English official and every native chief now knows, this China difficulty which is already much larger !
than a mere "man's hand upon .the
horizon," has been caused by one aet
of almost criminal foolishness on our
own part. When the fruits of the Tibetan expedition wat gratuitously
thrown away by the English Government, it became merely a matter of
time for China to re-establish herself
in Tibet, no longer at tuzerain, but
as sovereign.
The knowledge that we had broken
the military strength and wrecked the
national ambitions of the Tibetans
nrght, perhaps, have made us pause
before we surrendered her defenceless
to her old master. But if no sense of
fair play in that respect should have
weighed with ua���and there may be
something ssiu against encouraging
an Englishman's' over-readiness to

Earth's    AtmeeaiMre    Influenced    by
Mean's Attraction,    i
Until taseH began tv navigate the air
and study Its currents and movements
little attention waa paid to the conditions of the upper atmosphere, and
sucb matters aa atmospheric tides and
top currents completely encircling the
earth were of seemingly little Interest.
Since men h-tve flown, ami especially
since men have Down and fallen, we
bave heard a great deal In a vague
way of air currents. Recently Lawrence Hodges lu a paper before an
English scientific body gave some
unique facts ubout ulr tides wbicb are
not generally known.
The moon we know causes tbe marine tides by Its attraction. It draws
tbe water on tbe surface of tbe earth
toward It In a bump on the side that
is exposed to tbe lunar Influence and
draws tbe earth Itself away from the
water on tbe opposite side, leaving n
corresponding bump of water. The
air. lt seems, is affected in tlie same
way. Tbe layer of atmosphere about
the earth rises, falls and flows more
freely than water becauae It Is lighter,
so lhe tide comes more quickly In tlie
ulr at a given spot than tbe marine
This rise and fall, however, means
Just us much to the navigator of the
ulr as the tide ln tbe sea does to tho
sailor and bus to be accounted for.
The most remarkable current, however, is one constant stream tn tbe atmosphere running from west to east
completely around the earth in Ihe upper atmosphere. This was tint brought
to public attention wben the volcano
KrnS;atuo blew a cubic mile of matter
Into the upper atmosphere In the
eighties The lighter particles were
seen to make a complete circuit of the
earth seven times in tills clrcumglobu-
Inr current liefore they finally disappeared.���ChlcURti Tribune.

of bis fathers and he wlll go alsiut tha
duties of his kind as if be had been
schooled   in   tliem.     Recently   it   was
found that some beavers were living
lu their villages near Avignon, on the
Rhone.     For at  least  o(Ki years  they
had had llo trees to fell for their dams,
so for thirty generations tliey had burrowed  In   the  banks  nnd   built   mud
walls ubout their lodgings with  tlieir
tails.   A Polish count became interested ui one of th? colonies and removed
fl  few of them to a forest grown estate.    Immediately the beavera e��ial>-
llnhcd   themselves   by   a   stream,   cut
their trees und built tbeir villages ��3
their fathers bad not beeu able lo Uo

Cell Sensitive to Light.
A unique electrolytic cell which It
sensitive to light wus recently de
scribed by M. il. Pelabon before tht
French Academy of Sciences, says th*
Scientific American. The negative elec
trode of this cell ls pure nntimonj
and Ihe positive electrode nn alloy ol
antimony und selenium. The solution
in which tbe electrodes are imtnersec
consists of trichloride of aniimotiy anc
hydrochloric ncid. If this cell Is kepi
under uniform conditions of tempera
ture and In perfect darkness lt>
voltage remains constant. However
should the positive electrode be Mu
minuted the voltage would rise al
once nearly oO per cent. Rut the cell
would not maintain this voltage ever
though the light were kept steadily
shining on the electrode. Put would
gradually diminish until after a period
of UboUl 'JO minutes It would reach lfl
Initial voltage. Thereafter, should tht
light be cut off. the volCge would drop
at once about BO per cent below tb*
Initial voltage and then would list
slowly to the normal voltage.
Automatic Lifeboat Launcher.
A mechanical device for lowering a
lifeboat into the water from a ship
and automatically releasing It from the
davits bas beeu perfected by Charles
lluut of New Vork. The apparatus
will enable one man to swing a boat
from over tbe deck nnd lower It into
the water. A shaft connecting the
two davits Insures equal speed in the
lowering of both ends of tho lifeboat.
Wben passengers have taken their
places ln the llfelioat one man by turning n wheel can launch tbe croft ln
two minutes.
Paint Sprayer For Stenciling.
For stenciling on plaster, paper, cloth
or auy material where liquid color Is
used the paint spray Is snld to be far
superior to the brush ln both speed
and quality of work accomplished. The
modern paint spray ls capable of adjustment So One thnt paint mny be
thrown In n line from tbe smallest
itrtpe to a broad spray for coating surfaces.
