He is understood  to have expressed  himself* as satisfied  , with the situation here and in London.  and is said to be confident of the out-  ��� come of the Lo Roi shareholders' meeting.

August 27.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The well known King  Solomon mine, in Copper camp, is preparing to ship ore to the Greenwood  smelter. It has nearly 1G0. tons of high-  grade copper ore on the dump and is  taking out more every day. The face of,  the vein is looking very well. The oro  is expected to run from 14 to 20 per  cent copper. A contract has been entered  into for hauling the ore to the railway  .siding at Dadwood sawmill, and from  there will go to the smelter by rail. The  King Solomon is owned by D. C. Corbin and E. J. Roberts of Spokane, who  lately made nearly three miles of wagon  road-to the mine. The work is being directed by Tonv Burton,'formez'ly of the  Dundee mine at Ymir, who has .eight  men opening tip the lead.  .  Fred H. Oliver, managing director  of the Morrison Mines/Limited, is no.w  at tlie mine;'where work is being con-  contrated.on'the 300-foot level. Between  four and five.hundred feet of crosscut-  ing and drifting have been done on the  level. It is intended to shortly commene:*  prospecting with a diamond drill to facilitate the exploration of the ore body  ���iri the mine. An 'SO horse-power horizontal return tubular boiler is being in-r  stalled, which will provide abundant  additional power for all requirement-*,  fpr some time to come.

Seven of the buckets  Shamrock II Is a Winner.  NEW YORK, August 27.���Shamrock  II was given a good long spin today  both inside and outside the Hook. She  was tried in windward work and broad  and close reaching. In fact the challenger was given, everything except a  spinnaker run in a breeze that sometimes piped up to 12 knots.and at no  time was under eight knots. The good  opinion of her speed ;merits and ability  to carry lofty canvas was- emphasized.  Many yachting experts who- saw her  performance call her a wonderful boat.  All say she is the most dangerous proposition that ever came over the water  hunting for the America's cup. She had.  life in her everj- minute. -*:She gathers  way with remarkable rapidity, is" quick  in stays, points very high, and stands  up under a tremendous spread of canvas like the proverbial steeple. At no  time today did she put her rail under,  even when wearing around close hauled  and taking a 12-knot. breeze abeam.  With all this she is a very beautiful  boat under sail, and taken altogether is  a decided improvement over the old  Shamrock. Sir Thomas Lipton was on  board during the entire trial, and when  seen at Sandy Hook after she had picked  -up hor moorings seemed much pleased  with her showing. "This is the twentieth spin wliich the boat has had," said  he, "in concluding her races on the other  side. She is improving all the time and  I am more than pleased with her today  than ever before. 'At no time did we  carry any water on deck. She had life  every minute, and if she does not carry  back the cup, the American boat that  boats -her may well inspire pride in your  people."  Shamrock covered the nine miles from  tho Southwest Spit to Owls Head against  the tide of three knots in 59 minutes.  The run back over the same course, including six tacks, was done in 57 minutes. - ...:..  Snapshotter*; Cannot EKploit Japan.  ' YOKOHAMA, August 10, via San  Francisco, August 27.'���The greatest annoyance and trouble to the foreign tourists .continues to happen through the  rigid enforcement of the' law"'a**-airist  taking photographs - anywhere within  tho limits of the fortifications. As these  scenes include very large tracts, mainly  on the chief lines of travel, .the result  is the almost prohibition of the use  of cameras by tourists. Artists will also  find it impossible to exploit the country, as sketching is also placed equally  under the ban. The money market continues to improve. The expression of  sympathy on the part of court and native press on the receipt of news of the  .empress Frederick's,death'is a very genuine evidence of the political good feeling toward Germany. This is largely  : owing to. the praise lavished by German  officers upon the Japanese troops in China, arid the favorable impression which-  they themselves have made when visit-���  ing here as the nation's guests.  Worse Than Ever Before.  LONDON, August 27.���Byron Brennan, the British consul general at  f3hanghairwho=has"just*;returned=to"Erig5=  laud, said today to the correspondent  of tho Asociated Press: From the  standpoint of foreign interests, the position in China today is far worse than  before the international occupation of  Pekin. Formerly the Chinese believed  foreign interests were, at any.rate, to  a certain extent identical. Thanks to  recent events, they are now better able  than ever to play off one power against  another, so patently have their interests  been shown to diverge. There is a very  hostile fooling iu many parts,of northern China, and local disturbances may  be expected. Mr. Brennan declares that  Russia and Germany, both had far more  influence- with the Chinese government  than Great Britain.  The Basis to be the Offer Made to the  Amalgamated Association  Last'July.  PITTSBURG, August 27���Practically  the,only significant event in the strike  today was the stand taken by, the American Tin Plate Company in reference to  its course in the future. An official  statement from the company denies that  there are any negotiations looking to a  settlement of the strike on foot, and  authorizes .the statement that mills put  into operation during the strike will be  /continued non-union and all men going  to work now will be retained in their  positions. This" statement will have its  effect because of the fact that the tin  plate trade has always been considered  as among the strongholds of the Amalgamated Association, and the defi appears to have been brought about by the  association - declaring a strike- against  the tin plate company after the scale  for the year, had been signed. Notwithstanding the fact that the Amalgamated'  people claim justification on the ground  that their constitution provides for such  procedure, the officials of the tin plate  company consider the action a breach  of trust, and say that henceforth .they  are determined to cut loose from union  labor entirely. The Association officials  treat tin* threat with indifference, their  only reply being that the company can't  carry out its plans, because nearly all  of the skilled tin workers'of the country are members of the Association, and  the plants cannot be run without them.  The corporation, however; has started  several of their plants in a way, and  claim to have all the men necessary  within reach to operate them in full as  soon as the machinery is in proper  shape. The developments of the day  would appear to-evidence slow but sure  gains by the corporation.    *  The following summary gives the  status in this district: . Painter mill���  Six mills being operated and management says plenty of good material is  being .turned out. Star mill���Men still  ,a't work upon two mills; no more men  have^entered the plant; third turn may  be put on at midnight. Lindsay and  McCutcheon mill���Several mills secured;,  two mills open with separate crews. McKeesport representatives of the tube  workers decided to stand by the Amalgamated officials. Demmler plant may  be started this week.  President Shaffer says he will consider a peace proposition from responsible parties. The Amalgamated officials are confident of success.  The one mill within this district where  strikers have v scored a victory is at  /Irondale, Ohio. At this place the American Tin Plate Company was compelled  to close down its. recently, opened plant  for lack of men to operate it.  PITTSBURG, August 27.���It is learned  late tonight that president Shaffer has  /sent out letters to all; members of the  executive committee of the Amalgamated Association inviting their approval of the peace plan agreed upon  last Saturday.by the representatives of  the National Civic Federation and the  their plans. Meanwhile there is no  doubt but that Mr. Luxton is to become  a resident of Winnipeg again early next  month, and, in all probability, he will  accept some position in the gift of tho  local government. Hosts of old friends  will warmly welcome Mr. Luxton back  to tho city of which lie was for so many  years a leading citizen.���Winnipeg Free  Press.  A PARLIAMENTARY LEADER  ACCOUNTS OF A MASSACRE  Laws Are Complex  WASHINGTON, August 27. ��� The  state department has received from  United States minister Newell at The  Hague an abstract of the Dutch laws  bearing, on "military service with the  purpose of acquainting naturalized citizens with their rights in case of their  return to Holland. He says these laws  are so complex that American citizens  of Dutch origin should find before returning to their native country, wha.t  status they may expect to enjoy. There  is no treaty between the United States  and Holland defining the status of such  citizenshin.                       '.*'.''  i .   . . .   Demands bn^Corea.  YOKOHAMA, August 27.���Dispatches  received here from Seoul say. the French  : representative at the Corean capital has  . presented a series of demands, including  ;5000 yen as compensation for injuries  sustained by the missionaries and the  punishment of 50 of the persons guilty  of taking an active part in the Quelpart  riots.     Further   attempts   to   supplant  McCleevy Brown from his office as director general of the customs have proved  abortive.

"Amalgalnated-Associ"atibn "headquarters  The" plan proposes: First���That the  New York offer of. July 26th made by  Messrs. Schwab and Morgan be accepted. This provides that the tin plate  mills resume under the scale signed for  the year beginning July 1st; that the  hoop company sign for all mills signed  for last year; and that the sheet steel  company sign for all mills signed for  last year except Old Meadow and Salts-  burg. Second���That a provisional scale  be arranged but not signed for Painter's,  Lindsay & McCutcheon's, and rthe Clark  mill, leaving recognition of the union  open. Third���That the United States  Steel Corporation formally declare its  attitude toward organized labor; this  declaration to take such -form as will  have a reassuring effect upon the men in.  the mills. President Shaffer has assented to these propositions and is now  awaiting the result of a vote by .mail.  If approved, the Civic Federation people  will endeavor to secure an audience with  the Steel Corporation officials iri New  York. ���-.',������  PITTSBURG, August 28.���The excitement at McKeesportjat midnight is inr  tense.

She had  88- saloon .and-13 intermediate passengers. No Chinese were brought because  of plague at Hong Kong.  The Chinese papers received by the  Empress contain accounts of a massacre  of Chinese in -the Kwan Nien district  of Manchuria, the Russians excusing the  massacre by the statement that 'the  peasants killed were mistaken for insurgents. Few details are given. Further  troubles in Mongolia and Manchuria are-  reported, and according to the North  China Daily News, the Russians have  placed 20,000 men on the Manchurian-  Korean frontier to cope with the rebels.

TWO GOVERNMENTS AT OUTS  DAILY WEATHER  REPORTS  TRAFFIC MANAGER WHYTE  Luxton's Return to Winnipeg.  A good deal of interest is being taken  in the city in the rumored appointment  to a position in the provincial civil service of;W. F. Luxton. For the past three  years 'Mr. Luxton has been managing  the St. Paul Globe, and has been very  successful in this capacity. The paper,  it is said, is about to change hands, and,  consequent on this, Mr. Luxton is retiring. Rumor has associated Mr. Lux-  ton's name with the position of license,  inspector for this district in succession  to J. H. Penrose, and yesterday the positive announcement was made by . the  tive announcement was made by. the  newspaper organ "of the Roblin government.

R. steamer line to  Vladivostock similar to the Empress  liners, to connect with the C. P. R. and  trans-Siberia lines, returned today by  the Empress of China. He said in an  interview that he could give nothing out  regarding the results of his mission until his report had been printed." Speaking of the trade possibilities, he said  the recent tariff imposed by Russia discriminated against United States goods,  on which wore levied higher rates than  "formerly, and was a handicap to trade,  but the market was large in Siberia and  the district resourceful, although the  people bowed under militarism and  priesthood and were poor. He learned  while at Khabaroff that general Gribski  was reported to have suicided because of  the Amur massacre, where 2940 people  all told were killed, and for which ho  had been banished to Kamscatcka. Mr.  .Whyte says, a.grave insurrection prevails in Manchuria, and he was warned  at Pekin.by. the British ambassador not  to go through there. The Russians are  very secret, however, concerning the details and he could learn nothing of them.

To crown all, our parliament,  where the voice of the people should be  hoard in legitimate, responsible fashion,  is suspended contrary to law.

Through the medium  of the meterological oflice in London, reports are received daily by cable from  various points in the British Isles and  on the West European coast, and also  the Azores. The object of the West Indian service is to give warning to shipping and  to  American  coast interests  of the approach of tropical hurricanes.  The Mexican reports are useful in determining the approach'Of storms which  advance to our coast from the southwest. An extension of the region of observation also  has  been  made  in  the  Northwest  Territories  and   to" Barker-  ville, British Columbia, and it will keep  pace with the extension of the telegraph  lines. *  After the war witu Spain, climatic  and crop sections of Porto Rico and  Cuba wore establishea with an issue  of weekly, monthly, and annual publications in both English and" Spanish,  identical with those of the States, thus  giving to the people of Porto Rico and  Cuba some of the earliest evidence, of  American enterprise. The collection of  data-showing tlie depth of snow on  ground at high altitudes, forming,, the  basis of a series of bulletins, have  proved exceedingly popular in determining the probable water flow in rivers  and streams during the subsequent season, a matter of vital importance to irrigation interests.

Indeed,   it  is  doubtful  if he will be any longer king of Servia.  For the elections under the new constitution, from which he expected much,  have just taken place, and in lieu of the  large   court  party  which, he  expected  to find in the chamber, 129 of the 130  members are opposed to him, and his  declared foes, while the remaining minority of one constitutes his only support in-the national parliament.   What  _is_mor_e_'significant_is_that_this_extraor--  dinary result has been achieved in spite  of the  most  unscrupulous  use  by  the  king of his power to secure success at  the polls, the Servians imagining from  the terms of the constitution  and  the  promises of the king that they were at  length going to have a free vote.    But  this promise has  not been  kept.    The  result of the election is startling enough  to have created -a sensation even here,  where it was known that the position of  king Alexander and queen  Draga  was  extremely insecure.    But now that the  people     of    Servia    have    ascertained  through the election  how weak  is  the  hold of the king and  queen upon the  country,  it is probable that steps will  quickly" be taken to rid tho country of  its present regime.

Since the  strength of the union has been divulged  president Smith Whaley said today:  "We do not propose to have any unionism in our business. The mills of South  Carolina have agreed to employ no  union labor whatsoever. I will close  down every mill before I will employ  a union man. All pf my operatives will  be required to sign an agreement that  they will not belong to a union."  THE FRENCH MINISTER ORDERED  TO LEAVE TURKEY.

It is said the prisoner will  be burned alive if captured.  PARIS,   August' 27.���A   semi-pfficial  noto has been issued announcing, that  the porte,  not  having  carried  out  his'  understanding, with regard  to "the. disputed    Quay    questions    between    the  French.and the Ottoman governments, ���  M.   Constans,   the   French   ambassador,  under  instructions,  left Constantinople  on  August 2(ith.   An  arrangement; had  been  effected  on  August 17th��� and  its .-  terms were drafted by the Ottoman for- ���  cign minister, with the approval of the ���  Sultan, who had promised M. Constans -  that the text would be handed him on .  August  18th.  M.   Constans  telegraphed ���  to Paris on August 19th that none of the  promises   had    been   fulfilled,   and   M. :-  Delcasse on August 21st telegraphed M.  Constans that, in -view of so flagrant a ���  disregard of the undertakings, the nego- .  tiations could  no longer' be continued,  and requested M. Constans to inform the "  porte  that  he  had  received  orders   to  leave   Constantinople   ou   August  23rd. \  M.   Constans   communicated   with   the  porte,  fixing  August  26th  as  the date  for his departure, and as the engage-'"  ments were still  unkept,  M.  Constans"  left Constantinople on that date. With  the departure of M. Constans the rela- .'  tions of France and Turkey maybe re- *  garded as" broken off."' ^      -     -"���  Munir Bey, the Turkish ambassador,  to France, has been telegraphed not to \  return to-Paris. .    _"       ,  jPARIS, August 27.���The correspondent of the Associated Press ,was-:in-  fornied today from the best source that,  while the current affair of "two ehi-  bassies could be carried on -by the  charge d'affaires, all negotiations" of a  political nature would be entirely suspended until the sultan could yield to '  the French demands. The Frencli government considers that the sultan lias"  broken his word. He had promised full  payment of long-standing indemnities *  to Frenchmen, amounting to twelve million francs, but the end of last week  declined to pay. the full amount and  offered a reduction in the sum, which  was declined. M. Constans had arrived  at Stamboul, where"lie was to take the.  Orient express, when a court chamberlain reached there in post haste from  the sultan, begging him to return, to  Therapia, and promising that everything would be satisfactorily settled.  M. Constans declined to return, declaring the time for promises was past; it  was for the sultan to fulfill his under-,  takings. Tho French government will'  take no further steps in the matter,  but will wait for the sultan to move,  and it is not thought the sultan will  allow the present situation to last very  lone.  WASHINGTON, August 27.���It is  feared in official- circles here "that tho  withdrawal cf the French ambassador  from Constantinople marks the dissolution of the concert of European powers, under which the integrity of Turkey  was guaranteed.   Although  several   times severely sCrained���notably by  such events as the late war between  TiKkcy a id Greece���this pact has so  far endured without amendment, but it  is apparent now that the action of  Prance shall bo carried out to the extreme measures indicated in the dispatches, each of the other signatory  powers will feci obliged, in self-protection, to disregard the agreement and  press upon Turkey the vast financial  and other claims that have accumulated  in the past quarter of a century, with  a result or disrupting the present Turkish government.'"

The  shipping of the port is tied up, commerce is falling below the. low water  mark, merchants are complaining because business is paralyzed and police  officers grumble because they "are compelled to work overtime.

RodenberE adds,  'however, that Chinese coolies are "ideal  1 workers," and that as soon as the next  congress meets it will be petitioned to  fallow the capitalists to import the yellow slaves and shackle them with ten-  1 year contracts.  The clothing workers' strike in New  York took a novel turn.   After the rnan-  :ufacturera conceded the demands of the  [���workers the contractors, or middlemen,  fwent on strike against the manufacturers, claiming that their profits would be  [wiped out.    The contractors issued  ar  [appeal, printed oh green paper, urging  |the  workers, to  return  to  their  "good  jobs"- at the  old  scale  and  denounced  Ithe "fat belly" walking delegates.   The  jcircular was received with howls of decision on the part of the strikers.  The Machinists'  Journal,  the official  Drgan of the,International .Association  Machinists, estimates��� tnat up to cite  irst of this month the nine-hour strike  jf ttie union 'lias proven successful in  per cent of the shops involved, compromised in 15 per cent and lost in IC  per cent.   The losses, however, are only  temporary, as the'fight will be kept up  fmtil  all  concerns  are in  line.    These  (figures ought to inspire with confidence  every   unionist   who   is   struggling  for  ihe introduction of the shorter workday.  The strike .of the iron and steel workers is being closely watched by the officials of the Western Federation of Miliars. "It shows," says president. Boyce  the Miners' Magazine, "what the miners of the west will have to face in n  short time with the copper trust and  the smelter trust." The two latter institutions are largely owned by the same  (into��'ests that control the United States  Steel Corporation, and which have apparently started in to wipe trads unions i  Thomas M. Robertson, a special agent  of the United States bureau of labor,  has been investigating conditions in the  homes of New York's "working clurses "  a dispatch says. Mr. Robertson finds  that "there are no homes worthy of the  name on the Bast Side." He says "the  places where the working classes of  Manhattan live are crowded tenements,"  and that "tenement houses and flats do  not. tend to improve moral conditions."  Mr. Robertson's only solution for present conditions is that the working class  ought tb have separate homes," but even  that luxury (?) can't very well be secured because the workers are slavishly  chained to the corrupted Tammany and  Piatt machines and vote in favor of  poverty.   How White Men Die.  The stories told by.the survivors of  the lost-steamer Islander on the Pacific  coast are "of such a nature as to cause  us not to feci ashamed of the race we  belong to.   The disaster'struck a sleeping ship at half-past 2 in the morning,  and; twenty  minutes later .the doomed  vessel  plunged  headlong into  the  sea,  carrying .with her; all who had not left  her; decks or who had not succeeded in  getting well clear of her.    And yet the  great majority" of her passengers were  saved.    Of the women and children on  board more than half were saved, although ' many :of them had no natural  guardians present, and, perhaps, some,  of those who perished were not aroused  by tlie accident, and thus did not come  under the observation of the men who  were lowering and manning the boats.  It is, mighty easy to sit or stand three  =oi*=fouii=thousand=miles=away=from=a=  scene - of sudden disaster on the ocean  in the blackness of night and find fault  with   captain  Foote   because   (as  some  say)   he jumped to a raft as his ship  went down, or with those who put off  in boats that were not carrying their  full quota of passengers.   It is very easy  to indulge in such.arm-chair criticisms,  'but no man who has once fought with  ravenous water for his life, or who has  passed through any panic corresponding  in any measure with that which must  have occurred on board the Islander but  will feci proud to belong to the race  that can pass through such an ordeal  with so much credit. It might have been  better.    In  daylight,  with  more  time,  it would  have been better,  but under  much   better   circumstances   and   with  much more time men not of our race  have fallen  very far short of making  so manly a showing as did the passengers on the Islander.    One of the survivors,   Samuel   Johnson,   says:    "You  could not imagine a sceen more coolly  acted.    A man  would swim up to his  fellow,  and  the  latter  would  tell  him  that if he grasped the same wreckage  he was holding both would sink.    The  man would then turn around, to seek a  scr-ntling of his own."    It may be���it  often is so���that sore and bereaved survivors will soothe their feelings by intimating that more could have been done  than was done to save those struggling  in the waters.   And it may be true that  more could have been done.   But, considering the time.of nighty the suddenness of the disaster, the density of the  fog, the opinion must be an abiding one  that the men on the Islander played a  manly part���Toronto Star.

Mr. Gutelius quickly became popular with his  new associates, and he soon had a wide  circle of friends' aside from those he  made in connection with his railway  work. This was well evidenced last  evening by the company which gathered  at the Hume to express their regret at  his departure ana" to wish'him every  success in the new branch of railway  service which is opening out before him.  At the banquet table mayor Fletcher  presided, William Dowriie, superintendent of Kootenay branch lines, was in  the vice chair, and around the table  among others the following were noticed: J. R. Robertson, W. F. Teetzel,  W. J. Quinlan, John A. Turner. John  Hamilton, W. P. Tierney, I. G. Nelson,  Charles Mills, Charles Crandon, Fred Irvine, D. 0. Lewis; E. A. Crease, J. C.  Blandy, C. F.

Blandy, on behalf of Mr. Gutelius'  personal staff, made a neat speech, in  which he voiced the apreciation which  he and his associates had for their chief  and was followed  by C.  F.  Freeman-  Lake, who read an illuminated address,  Iri which Mr. Gutelius,"was asked to accept from the staff a very handsome album of photographic views of Nelson  and vicinity,.together with a neat valise.  The album* was easily the finest thing  of the kind produced in the country,  containing as it did ail the best views  that have been taken of Nelson and the  other points of interest throughout the  district.    The frontispiece was beautifully illuminated, and in one of the corners the names of" the staff appeared:  J. P. Vance, J. C. Blandy, C. F. Freeman-Lake, H. L. Johnstone, D. O. Lewis,  P.   J.   Gallagher,  A.   A.   Johnson,  T.Z.  Choate, R. S. Moe, and M. McLennan.  In addition to this Mr. Gutelius was also  presented   by   superintendent ' William  Downie, on behalf of the members of  his staff, with a very handsome liqueur  set in oak, together with an oak salad  bowl, biscuit jar, and oak tray.   In connection with the presentations a number of very good speeches were made,  in   which   some ' very   complimentary  things were said of the guest of - the  evening,  and   the   hearty  -manner Jn  NEW YORK, August 27.���Nikola Tes-  la, the Inventor, ^received word today  that'the complicated apparatus he has  devised 'for the transmission of electric  energy to all quarters of the globe is  completed. Incidentally these instruments are available for the sending .of  telephonic messages without the aid of  wires, but this is only one item in the  incredible labor which the Servian has  planned his mysterious mechanisms to  perform .  The preliminary tests of Tesla's system of long-distance transmission will  be in the' sending _of messages across  the Atlantic. This will' not be in the"  nature; of an experiment,, however, for  Tesla overcame the "difficulties attendant on wireless telegraphy six years  "ago, and passed on from them to the  perfection-of a greater work, the sending of electrical energy across seas and  continents.  His purpose, which he hdSv looks  upon as accomplished in all save actual operation,- is to encircle the globe  with a complete chain of electrical  force, dirigible to the finest imaginary  degree, to be applied or withdrawn or  modified at.the will of one man.  Most of the apparatus which is to  be employed- in this wonderful work,  and which is now in readiness -for- installation _ in his main power station,  has been made, arid by September 1st a  construction: force��� will begin setting .it  up at the headquarters whicli the inventor is about-to -establish at Warden-  clyffe, Long-Island.   *  Three stations have been arranged for  on the. other side of the .'Atlantic���7one  in Portugal, one-in.France, and one in  Germany.

LONDON, August. 27.���The American  steel workers' strike is engaging considerable attention in England and  among the trades unions. George  Barnes, secretary of the Amatgamated  Society of Engineers, the best organized  and wealthiest union in England, said:  "If there is one lesson above another to  be learned from this strike it is that  without a most highly concentrated organization and without wealth behind  it, workers must go under to employers."

PARIS,  August'27.-j ales "Bois,  the  distinguished    psychologist,    has    discovered a new religion, or raxher a renovated form from an old religion" in Belgium, of which he '���yrites as follows:  "In the village of Ponsour, near Liege,  I found a whole community of worshippers of the dead. This is their religion.  They   have, clergy,   male   and   female,  their, temple of worship, their Sunday  services at S)  o'clock,  the hour  when  spirits manifest themselves, their processions and their banners. This is the  only case on record where a whole town  is given, up to spiritualism and worship  of the dead. Its creed is 'To be born to  die, to progress ceaselessly; such is the  law.' It is a revival of the god Pan and  all the members are mysitc free thinkers. The pope has told off ;monsignor  Batteridier to study .the question, and  the   good  mon'signor   admitted   to   me  that the church fears this revival of the  primitive religion,- because it works in  mitigation of miracles;  its theories ot  reincarceration do away with the dogmas of heaven and hell. Like'occultism,  theosophy,..and Christian Science, it is  another form of Paganism.- The renewal  of the worship- of th'e'- dead is evidence  of the necessity of religion. Most people  cannot do without religion of some sort,  and if they do not accept the"existing  form they make one of thir"own."
