Recent   Eruption   on   Babuyan   Island
Fails to  Drive  Residents
The most primitive people of the entire Philippine archipelago dwell on
tlie Island of Babuyan, some sixty
miles north of Luzon, according to
members of Governor-General Wood's
party who visited that group recently.
The lotal population of the Island Is
seventy-seven, composed of fourteen
married men, the same number of
married women, twenty adult unmarried women, iwealy-five children of
bolh sexes aiul four old women.
.Money is unknown among lhe people, with lhc exception of Bernardino Bosal, ihe head man, who.treasures a few silver pesos as a reminder
of his former life iu Luzon. Itosal
Is pries!. Judge, legislator and executive afl in one. He ofUciut<>s at funerals, marriages and births and adjusts
all tribal differences.
Dr. Paciflco -La.vgo. au assistant in
the Philipine Health Service, who was
a member of the Governor-General's
party, landed or. Babuyan Island and
explored the volcano which reeeutly
was In eruption.
"From the top of the mountain to
the water's edge the once exuberant,
vegetation was burnt off and boulders,
ashes and lava cover the mountain
side," said Dr. Lay go. "A new crater
appears to have formed from whicli
steam is continuously rising. The advisability of transferring-llie inhabitants to lhe mainland of Luzon was discussed with ihe islanders, but they decided that they preferred io remain on
Babuyan, although most of. their corn
and comote fields were destroyed by
the eruption. They were terrorized
by the (low of rocks, fishes and steam
from Hie volcano, but tliey could not
be persuaded to leave, their only desire being to get. to tlie northern end
of the island where they believed ihey
would be safe from future eruptions."

Have   Issued   Jutland   Report
Appendix By Lord Jelh'coe Most
Interesting Part of Admiralty
Ai last (he Admiralty have issued
their official account, of Ihe Battle of
Jutland, but instead of putting an
end to controversy it will probably increase it. Jutland 's one of those
historical events about the details of
which people of leisure will continue
to Write hooks and pamphlets for the
next century. Ti;ey��._uve already begun it in America.' A great naval action Is a complex affair, and, apart
trom the general strategy, there, is
infinite room for honest differences
of opinion on the details. There, were
hound io bo decropaucles in tlie various ship's records as to times and
ranges and hearings, and the Admiralty profess io have adjusted these
discrepancies by means of "erilcr-
ions of possibility ami probability."
Hut those are not exact eriterions, ihey
differ with ev<.ry expert,, and we are as
far away as ever trom objective truth.
The ordinary nil-ir will content himself with a knowledge of the general
features of the battle, wliich, happily,
are beyond doubt. The most interesting pari of the Admiralty publications is the appendix by Lord .fellicoe,
who vigorously controverts many of
the findings. Lord Jeilicoe, represents, of course, a>dlffereat view of
naval battle strategy from that held
by the present First Sea Lord; but the
controversy ls not on this point, biit on
cerlaln- details of the action. Lord
Jeilicoe, for example, defends Admiral
Evan. Thomas against, the criticism
thai he delayed 'origin'^ the Fifth Battle Squadron into action at the same

Byron and the Ajbbey
of rain.     -"������ -       ,     ' -.     '
Prompted by the distress of agriculturists whose crops have, been all
but ruined by the drouth"," Peking officials and religious bodies issued.an invitation lo the -ollicials of Shantung to
send lo the capital a historical Iron"
tablet of the Ming dynasty which is
said lo have a record for producing
rain. According to a story which is
widely accepted by the Chinese,7 a
magistrate'of Hantanhsien, Shantung,
in the "days of tlie .Ming emperors, became so concerned over the" sufferings
of his people because of drouth-that
he cast, himself into a well as a sacri-
ficefto the gods. On the following ,
day rain iel! and (ne drouth was broken.
Out of^gratitude (or their deliverance the people built a temple and
enshrined in it an iron tablet inscribed with (he nam) ol their martyr and"
a reeoi'd of his deed. The then em=
pcror, when the tacts-were related to
him. was so impressed that he con-
ieried upon the magistrate's name ihe
tiile Yu RliL-a. In fhe year following
the tablet has been broughtVt inter-
���\als to Peking when the necessity i'or
appraling to (he rain god became !
acute, as in the present instance.     '
A daj or two ago lhe tablejL arrived.
Jt was leverentlv placed in a vellow
sedan chair, a relic of the imperial
days, and with much ceremony borne
to a temple inside the Forbidden City.
There a ceremony was enacted before
it with incense and kowtowing exactly as was done in the imperial days.
Officials of the Boy Emperor's court
and of the republic participated side

of fhe United States antl the" Anglo-
Russian agreement embodjing general
and commercial treaties, Christian
Rakovsky, the Russian Charge D'Af-
faires at London, v.iio signed Ihe

"America is at present the, most
conservative capitalistic country. Under the mask of defending democratic
principles, it protects tjie interests of
the big American capitalists. America strives to "place Europe under its
economic guardianship, but Russia's
social regime presents for the United
States' capitalists the greatest obstacle in establishing their authority
ovpr the European and Asiatic continents."
In the opinion ef M. Rakovsky, Ihe
Tnited States will -ultimately be compelled to recoguize Soviet Russia, as,
lie contends there aro signs . of big
changes in the International.- life of

Revenue   From   Hard  Liquor Sales in
Alberta Light, Says Official
Edmonton.���Aloortans prefer beer
to the hard stuff, according fo an offl-^
cial admission I'rom Chief Liquor
Commissioner It. G, Dinning. Tho
breweries and the hotels, selling beer
by the glass under the Alberta law,
are reaping the harvest, while tlie
government liquor stores are cutting
their staffs because business is so poor.
With the first three months of government sale and- conirol ol liquoi
completed, the officials in charge ot
the adrainistratlon~have had brought
home to them (he realization that the
government stor?s for the sale of h,ard
liquor are not (o be the money makers
that some believed ihey would be. Jn
^fact, to those who thought that liquor
profit would be a means of quick reduction of taxation, 'the .disappointment will be keen, it" the financial records of the first' Ibrce months are
any criterion of what ihe year's profits
will be.
Commissioner Dinning admits ihat
the business in the government stores
was \ ery small after the first few
weeks, when lhe novelty of the new
experience had-worn -jiT.- " ~~
