An address delivered in Chicago a
few days ago by Bishop James M.
Thorburn, of the Methodist Episcopal
church, who has for years been at the
head of that church in India, has at
tracted considerable attention and
aroused much discussion ia religious
and other circles. The bishop rules the
destinies of thousands of Methodists in
southern Asia. His acquaintance with
European and Asiatic politics is thor
ough and far-reaching and this gives
weight to his momentous statements.
The prelate predicted that astonishing
changes in the map of the world were
impending. New empires, he said,
would arise, and there would be such
alterations of old lines that the geog-
BISHOP JAMES M. THOBURN.
raphies of today will be laughed at a
few years hence. Germany, England,
and the United States are to be the
great world powers.
Tho World' Progri.
"During the 40 years that 1 have
been in India many things have hap
pened," said the bULap. "Tlie world
has progressed and the serfs have been
emancipated, Italy set free, Louis Na
poleon and his system overthrown,
Germany consolidated, and, what is
unobserved by most people, a new na
tion has arisen In the world Austra
lia. In Asia the church has advanced
the cross and the crescent has retreated
and there are now thousands of Chris
tian converts who were once Moham
medans. I thank God evcry time I
hear of Russia annexing more of Asia.
But there is a new power entering
Asia, and hardly anybody seems to no
tice it Many significant things will
result from what has just passed be
tween Emperor William and his uncle,
Edward VII. of England. Before
many years the old Austrian emperor
will die. The old second-rate empire
will then fall to pieces, and what will
be more natural than that Germany
should possess the part of It which
now borders on the Adriatic? Ths
German empire will then be continu
ous from the North Sea to the Mediter
ranean. Germany has already built
railroads in Asia Minor between the
Tigris and Euphrates rivers European
governments do ' not build railroads
unless they intend to secure possession.
Omt Umpire of tho Fularr.
"The time of great empires is com
ing. There will be the United States of
North America and the United States
of South America. There will be the
United States of Europe, th FufMsn
Republic, the empire of China, the em
pire of the Indies, the German empire,
and, last of all, a mighty republic In
the island of Australia.
"When peace is restored the Chinese
will embrace Christianity as no nation
ever did before. The millions In that
walled empire will pour out into Bor
neo, Africa and perhaps South Amer
ica. They will not bother the United
States, for the Chinese like tropical
climates. In Borneo, with its 200,000
square miles of land and only 1,500,000
inhabitants, there will be ample room.
Tbe population of that island is also
kept down by tbe custom of compell
ing each man before being eligible for
marriage to kill some person and se
cure a polished skull for bis bride's
Edgar Saltus, the great journalist
who has circled the globe many times,
and who Is an authority on political
conditions In (-very country, laughs at
Bishop Thoburn's prophesy. He says:
"Tbe bishop is a great man from a re
ligious point of View, but he is out of
bis element when he talks world pol
itic. Hit prejudice will not permit
him to see that Russia will within the
neit fifty years absorb all of Europe,
Ail and Africa, and that Great Brit
ain, Germany and France will become
parts of the dominions of tbe Musco
vites'. So far as bis reference to this
side of the world and to Australia are
concerned he Is correct. Australia will
become the British empire of the fu

Cambria will settle down to Russian

Recent dispatches contained an ac
count of a sensational occurrence in
the district court at Watertowa, S. D.
In the trial of a divorce case one of
the attorneys. George W. Case, tald
something offensive to Judge Julian
Bennett, who sat on the bench. Tbc-r-upon
Judge Bennett responded hotly
and Mr. Case said: "Judge B?nnett,
you can address me in that manner
from the bench, but were not court in
session I would not tolerate such a
statement from you." Springing to his
feet. Judge Bennett exclaimed: "This
court is adjourned!" and with tint
knocked Mr. Case down with a blow in
And the story is doubly interesting
as showing how history will repeat it
self, though we regard tho Kansas in
cident which we are about to relate
as the funnier of the two. In 1SG8, the
famous Judge Joyce was a justice of
the peace In Hays City, and, as the
only judicial officer In the region, ad
ministered the law with an autocratic
hand. In the town there were two law
yers, only one of whom has to do with
this story. His name was Ryan, and
some months before he and JudgJ
Joyce had quarreled, with the result
of Ryan being disbarred from practice
on the ground that he had been a Con
federate soldier whose disabilities had
never been removed. Of course the
fact of Ryan's being a Confederate sol
dier was not cause for his disbarment,
and, anyway, Joyce had no right to
disbar him, but everything went in
the west in those days, and for some
months Ryan had to stay out of court.
However, after Joyce had consldmd
his enemy sufficiently punished he seat
word to him that he could come into
court. The nest case 'vhlch came up
for trial was against a fellow who had
stolen a cow, and he engaged Ryan to
defend him. In due course the prose
cution made its case a good one, by the
way, but while the witnesses were be
ting examined Ryan sat with his hat
punea aowu over nis eyes, sayiug
never a word. At last, when the guilt
of the prisoner had been established
beyond all doubt, the prosecution
rested, and, turning to Ryan, Judje

feet. "Come outside, yc monkey

And whereupon everybody ad
journed to the outside, where Joyce
and Ryan went at. It hammer and
tongs, with the result that Joyce re
ceived a beautiful licking. Latsr, when
the blood had been washed oft and
considerable red liquor washed down,
Joyce reconvened the court and sol

the prosecution. "Wo proved that man

"Will ye hould yer yawp?" sternly

COUNTESS DE GREY.
The death of Queen Victoria and the
consequent accession of the former
Princess of Wales to tho p'ace of firet
lady in the kingdom will have the
effect of restoring one of tho beautiful
women of England to the place at
court which she forfeited recently for
a singular reason. It Is only a few
months ago that the Countess dc Grey,
who had been one of the most popular
women at court functions, was in
formed that her presence at drawing
rooms, balls and other social affairs
was no longer tolerable, because shs
had opened an afternoon tea resort.
Her purpose In Indulging In trade was
to render herself financially Indepen
dent of her husband and his parents,
who had grown weary of paying htr
debts. Commendable as this scheme
was. It conflicted with the queen's
strict rule that titled women who era
bark In trade should be subject to os
tracism from court
It is confidently predicted now, hor
cver, that Lady de Grey wtil not only
COUNTESS DB GREY,

dra, with whom she ha been on term

years, but that she will be one of It
