Former Exile One of the Prominent Men to Give
Address
(Associated Press Despatches.)
St. Petersburg, Nov. 21.—The interest in the meetings,ol the Zcmstvos representatives is intense. Tht)
war and all other.questions are temporarily forgotten. Nothing else is
talked of. Liberals Irom all parts
ol the Empire are flocking hither inr
eluding many from Poland and Finland and hotels are crowded. The
permission' granted by the Minister
of the Interior Mirsky was for an assembly ol three hundred. The participants' Iriends display icomplete confidence in. thc protection aliorded by
the minister and his most outspoken
seatiments. The situation altogether
is unparcllcd. Nothing approaching a
gathering has ever been permitted tn
Russia belore. As evidence ot the
remarkable state ol affairs It is sufficient to mention that one of the
most prominent speakers yesterday
was M. Petrunkcivitch Tver, who
spent twenty-lour years In exile and
who had only been allowed, since
Prince Svialopola Mirsky's advent,
to come to the capital. Nevertheless
the most able men In the assembly
are counseling moderation and are
doing everything possible to prevent
demonstrations which might compel
interference.
One of the strongest men of the
conference said to tlie Associated
Press, "We want to make our position plain to the government, but
wc desire to avoid every appearance
ol lawlessness. I sincerely hope the

good. We hope and expect that all

Che Foo, Nov. 21.—(3 p.m.)- A
Japanese official among the latest
arrivals from Dalny states positively that the general attack upon Port
Arthur has not been resumed. Rumors to that e_ect have arisen be-
oause Iresh troops, including the Sev.

that the explosion which took place

was heard on Nov. 10, was much
heavier, and it is reported on the
best authority, was due to the blowing up of a Russian magazine. It is
expected that tkc next attack upon
Port Arthur will lie a tremendous affair. More reinforcements arc coming
to tlic support of Gen. Nogi than
those despatched to Field Marshal
Oyama. Tlic Japanese arc now constructing coast defense forts at Pigeon Bay, which is accepted as an indication that they expect to be ile-
fcniling Port Arthur, themselves somo

__CAPTURE GERMAN SHIP.
Tokio, Nov. 21 .-The Navy department reports the capture of the German steamer Batblajh, while attempting to.run the Port Arthur blockade.
The department says that at three
a.m., Nov. 19, a Japanese squadron
cruising off Yen Tai, near Talicn
Bay, sigoled a vessel steaming    for
Port Arthur. The gunboat Tatsui
pursued and overtook the steamer at
five in the morning. On board was
found a great quantity of winter
'clothing,!blankets, medicine and Cornell meats. Her captain said he was
bound for New Chwang. Thc route
. and cargo of the Balelan were con-
[sidered to be suspicious ■ and she was
taken possession of and taken to
Sasebo.
WAITING.
• Mukden, Nov. 21— The anticipated
general attack by the Japanese has
not developed as yet. The uncertainty of the present situation gives
rise to conflicting rumors and speculation regarding future operations.
I Some expect the Japanese to attack a wide flanking movement on
|Tie Pass, and others claim the armies will practically winter in their
present positions. Complete inactivity prevails. The nights are growing colder and fuel is scarce.

• NAVAL POWER.
A somewhat sensational telegram
from London to the New York Times published on Saturday ascribes
thc activity in British naval affairs
to thc anxiety caused by thc increase
in German warships. While it is well
known that thc Emperor has foi
years been bent on increasing the
power ot Germany on the sea; it is
not at all likely that this is actuating tlic British'. Admiralty in its recent preparations. Rather may it lie
traced to tlie necessity lor reform
and tlie change of policy brought
about by the head ol thc navy. Sir:-
John Fisher has ideas ot his own
that he is now .bent in carrying out
with the least possible delay. One
great innovation is the gathering ot
the ships into larger grups instead
ol scattering a few here and a few
there at distant stations, where
there would not lie ships enough in
times _f peril to present a strong
and effective force against a hostile aqrnooron. He considers that
by dispersing the fleets there is a
possibility ol thc efficiency of ships
companies not being so great as
where larger bodies arc central. The
aim ol the Admiralty is to have tlio
navy at least equal to those ol any
two other nations, a difficult task in
these days when the rivalry in the
naval line is so pronounced. Britain,
however, at all costs, needs the largest fleet ot any nation, seeing that
she has such a proponderencc ol tho
mercantile marine of thc world. Her
preeminence in warships, however,
is less by tar than it was a hundred
years ago, when no other country
could nearly compare with her as a
power on the sea. A recent table
shows lhat in 1810 Great Britain
had 450 ships as against 212 ships
lor France, 340 lor Russia, 301 lor
Spain, 158 for thc United States ami
214 lor all other countries. In guns,
turnover, Britain possessed 21,800,
compared with only 23,770 lor all
tho other nations named. In 1003
this hnd changed very materially;
Great Britain has now only 04 battleships, 41 armored cruisers and
125 cruisers, as compared with 1*0
battleships, 77 armored cruisers and
1,18 cruisers for France, Germany,
Russia, Italy, Japan and tho United Stales; Franre being second with
42 battleship-, 23 armored cruisers
and 23 cruisers. This table would
have to be reduced somewhat, lor
Russia is credited with 3(1 battleships, 11 armored cruisers and 27
cruisers, while she has not in reality half lhat number today; and when
Japan gets through with thc Baltic
fleet Russia will require de novo to
build up again. Navies on paper
arc very uncertain factors and it
would probably Ik found in actual
practice that Great Britain's proportion of really effective vessels would
he larger than thc lump flgurcs given
for thc combined navies, not forgetting also that no country has yet
been nitric to turn out ol its ship yards
warships with anything approaching
the facility ol Britain. A time must
come when thc rivalry in building
warships will become too burdensome. Apparently, too, il is not always possible to secure men to man
these engines oi war. Even in the
United States, which has -a small navy compared with that of Britain,
it has been found difficult to secure
crews tor them all and a short time
ago official notice was drawn to the
problem of how to remedy this.
When it is remembered that no less
than £30,889,000 is the cost of thc
British navy today and a battleship
like the King Edward VII., of 10,-
00(t tons, one of the newest afloat, is
no less than £1,308,000, one may understand at what cost naval supremacy is maintained.
NOAH'S ARK.     ...
K- V. Millard, who now resides iu
Indianapolis, lias been for several
years studying archaeology in Egypt
Forv the last year, until his recent
return, he was engaged in making excavations at various places on thc
Nile, especially at Gizch, in the
neighborhood of thc great pyramid ol
Cheops.
"I have discovered," said Millard,
just where Noah lived, where   thc
ark was built and that Noah   liuiit

as the pyramid of Gezeh.
"Noah was thc greatest King this
world has ever seen. He was the

CHARIVARlf
%S ILLEGAL
It seems that Manitoba has decided that thc "wild and, wooly days"
are over. One may instance thc
passing of hazing anil a jury's decision that the charivari is illegal to
emphasize this statement.
The students of Manitoba College
having succeeded in breaking a boy's
leg, have decided to do away with
"bouncing'' in lact, hazing has gone
out. At amass meeting ol..the:students at Winnipeg the irrevocable decision to prohibit was arrived at.
On behalf of the scholars a statement has been issued in which they
refer to tlic peculiar dimities and
privileges o! the life of a student
needing special initiations. The students say:
"Students whenever tlicy have been
gathered together in all stages ol
thc world's history have felt that
ordinary registration with the faculty ol a college was not sufficient
to impress upon thc untutored mind
of a newcomer the peculiar dignities,
and privileges ol the lite of a students. Thcrctorc in all great educational centres, wherever has l^rnen
the stir of college life, there has
always been lound some initiatory
exorcise characteristic ot time and
place. In common with all other similar institutions, Manitoba college
has had its initiation tor freshmen.
l''rom time "immemorial" noviatcs
have been laid upon a stout canvas
blanket and tossed three times into
the air. Not until tlicy were thus
'bounced' were they considered „y
their fellows or regarih.il by themselves as full-fledged members of fife
student body.
"flouncing Was a ceremony that
had as alight an clement of danger
about it ns any that could be devised, and had been carried on without
roughness or accident for many
years. Those bounced as a rule
participated with about as much
pleasure as those who iliil tlio (bouncing. Hundreds ol youths, small and
great, have thus submitted to temporary exaltation and have emerged
from the ordeal humbler and wiser
men, without suspecting that there
was a shadow of peril about the proceeding.
"On Monday week, however, as
Roy Jenkins, of the matriculation
class, was being bounced, his leg
was broken. It is hard lo explain
how this happened, but happen it
did. The boy. after the Iirst toss,
alighted . upon thc canvas standing
upon one leg lor a second; in tills
second that leg was struck and Irac-
turctl by tbe heel ol thc other loot.
A wave ol regret and disappointment
at such a possibility passed over the
student body. The sincerity ol these
feelings' called lor immediate demonstration. A mass meeting summoned by. the students representative
council was held on Friday lasl and
there it was decided that bouncing
as an institution and the practice
must lie abolished.
Thc students admit that it is hard
to give up bouncing, saying: "When
a man arrives at college lor thc first,
time and seems to be so deeply convinced of his own elevation as to
make the inferiority of others appear to be his only certainty, what
could be more appropriate than that
the others should encourage humility
by still greater and compulsory exaltation. When he comes down he is
content to walk humbly* belore his
follows, l'erhaps [cw freshmen aro
thus high-minded. Roy Jenkins1 not
al all so, but all must sublnit to tho
general form. Bouncing, then, conceivably had a place and a value. But
It is a thing ol tho past at Manitoba college."
As for the charivari business bot
a little sympathy went out 'to the
young couple ol Portage la I'rairie,
who fuuglil the nuisance. Mr. and
Mrs. 0. (loiltrcy were the victims ol
the wedding serenade. On the night
ol thcir marriage a howling mob
visited their resilience, booted, rang
cow bells, aud raised a racket generally. Mr. tlodfrcy drove olt tho
visitors. A few nights later they
returned, wilh cow bells, horns clubs
and also a shot gun. A tew shots
were tired and Mr. tlodfrey again at
tacked the visitors and succeeded in
driving off tlic crowd. ThcufMc took
legal steps against Messrs, 'Cross and
Thomas Dunn, whom he recognized
in the crowd. Thc question whether charlvaries were only - "bit ol
lun" or serious matters was threshed out bolorc judge Richards and a
jury. The tatter lound the accused
guilty of unlawfully assembling ami
recommended them to mercy and
tlicy were let out on suspended sentence
her subscgiient release. rar«. rpat;ters
of history, but the details ol the incident have never been toldj and they
only serve to indicate how dangerous a thing a little brief authority
in the hands of an inexperienced official may'prove.
Capt. Lund tells the story as follows: On the 29th ot July the Teresa was going into Unalaska. Just
before dropping anchor Lieut. McLoy
ol the United States reveaue cutter
McCullough, boarded the schooner
and examined Iter papers. He also
conducted a search of the little cralt
and 'among the iotas found were a
number of shotguns and some powder, which was used by the schooner
for her signal gun. The lact that
the powder was a compound that
could not be used in a small gun'made
ho difference. Nor did it seem to occur to the United States lieutenant
that the sealing season had not commenced, and that the Teresa might
be going to Copper Island coast,
that there were no. skins -hoard to
prove that the schooner had been
pursuing an illegal business or that
there is no law to prevent a vessel
carrying guns when she does not enrage in sealing.
The Teresa was bound into Unalaska and that she was about to anchor . practically alongside the McCullough was evidence in itsclt ol
Capt. Lund's innocence. But all
declarations to this effect proved unavailing. The Teresa was taken
alongside a wharf, a man from the
cutter was placed on watch, and orders were given tor the vessel to bo
taken to Victoria. Her papers were
scaled, and in [act about all tho provisions were locked up, only sufficient being allowed lor. the return
voyage to port. Capt. Lund concluded that his prospects for the season were doomed.
The British cruiser Shearwater,
however, came to his relief. She arrived at Unalaska on July -Olh,
when the Teresa's case was referred
to her captain. A consultation was
ihcrcupon held between the British
and United Slates officers, as a result ol which the officers ofr the McCullough were proven to be in the
wrong, and Capt. Lund was informed that he might continue on his
cruise.
Before sailing he look the precaution to have the guns which had been
found aboard, sealed up. Nothing
more nl importance happened until
lhc 17th ol August. On that date
the Shearwater came alongside and
a party boarded the Teresa. She
had at the time 76 skins, which were
all examined, but nothing was found
any way to cast a suspicion on
the legitimate character of the vessel's operations. The total catch
obtained on the cruise was 2.1 skins.
Capt. Lund reports tbat he had a
ery stormy voyage returning from
Bearing Sea. On the coast he left
Ihe Oscar and Hattie, the only seal-
r still out. The latter had some
ails blown away, and canvas to re-
l.lacc them was loaned by tlie Teresa.
o
the position oi thc legs ol the Ho-
hcnzollcrn stales in the Avenue Victory, can one draw conclusions as to
thc character ot thc represented personages?"
The much perturbed pupils scent
many long hours to answer this m_-
nittilous inqiilry. By an unforeseen
coincidence the matter came to the
cars of the Kaiser. He at once telegraphed to Dr. Studt, Prussian Minister of Education, and asked him to
send some of these compositions.
Alter strenuous efforts by the de-
rector of the school, three composition books were obtained. These, toy
special messenger, were at once taken to the Kaiser.
When tho Kaiser began to read the
compositions his features became a
little 'more amiable. They finally
bore a satisfied expression, when at
the end of the third composition he
read: "Alter all one would suppose
that tlfc character ol the Hohenzol-
lern in the Sicgcsaliee could be better told out ot their faces than from
the position of their legs." " This
is the best condemnation of the composition subject," the Kaiser wrote
on thc leaf of the book.

CHRISTMAS TREES SCARCE
The Maine farmer is already beginning to gather his crop of graceful firs to be used next month as
Christmas trees in the big cities,
says a despatch. During the past
fifteen years more than 10,0011,000
drs have been sacrificed lor Christinas trees. The demand was small
at first, hut as soon as the city dealers were made acquainted with tho
quality ofthe trees, they bought
more of theni, so for the uast jvc
or six seasons the shipments have
been more than a million every year.
The largest number was sent- away
tour years ago, when nearly a million and a half upright firs, as well
as several carloads of pines, were
lorwarded to the wholesalers in various cities. Since then the demand
tor larger trees has increased, while
thc call tor trees ol small size has
almost ceased. Tho reason for this
is said to be that not so many trees
are used in private families as lor-
mcrly, tho members ol variaus orders
and churches uniting and patronizing
some common Christmas tree, which
is set up in a church or a hall, and
around which the company gathers to
witness the distribution of presents.

> KAISER AND THE SCHOOLS
The Kaiser still continues his cl-
forts for the reform of the Qerinun
schools, It will be remembered that
it was due to his initiative that tlie
so-called real gymnasiums, where no
Ureek, bujl -natural sciences are
taught, were first introduced. Lately the Kaiser iu two instances has
given another proof ot his interest
in school reform.
While recently on his estate In Ca-
ilinen, he visiled the public school ol
the district, which is attended by
58 pupils, Alter having listened to
tho recitation, lie declared in strong
language that such overcrowding of
a schoolroom is inhuman cruelty.
The other stdry told, is even more
interesting. The instruction iu a
