lON'PON, July r. H pet-lal Cablcgmm to
The Be.) Juilge Addison's - Bttacli on
women monry lenders has aroused lively
interest among the poor and swarming pop
ulation of Pouthwnrk snd tba surrounding
Kollrltors who practice In Southwark bear
out the Judge's derttuatlon thst the women
money lenders are a pest to the district.
"Ths Impression one gets practicing south
of the Thames," said a Southwark solocltor
this week, "is that one-half of the popula
tion livee by lending money to the other
half. It is prolutbly due to the faot that
there is a very large and Impecunious pop
u'ation. At any rat's thre Is an extraor
dinary amount of money lending between
one )rmn and another, and there are hun
dreds of women who Tgrilnr!y lend small
amounts on no security except perhaps a
husband's forged signature.
"Quite a large business is done by these
women money lenders among the coster
mongers who live in the , 'Walworth road
neighborhood. The usual rate of Interest
is 1 shilling; on the pound pel week, which
works out at over 2S0 per cent per annum.
As a matter of fact, they make a good
deal more profit, for the costermoriKer bor
rows 1 or 3 on a Saturday morning and
pays it back with Interest on the Monday.
Thus tho money lender is able to turn her
monsy over two or three times a week."
Another solicitor stated that of the hun
dreds of Cases of the- kind widen go through
the Bouthwnrk county court in a year few
are defended, for the simple reason that
there Is. no, defensei to offer.
"The wives of poor artisans borrow small
sums from these women money lenders-4-!
few shillings, never above 6 and do their
best 'to' keep up' their repayment instal
ments. The first the husband hears of ths
liability Is when he Is served with a Judg
ment summons and is called upon to pay.
Scores of families are sold up In this way.
"The majority of the women money lend
ers are not registered, although some have
taken that course. To ssvo the 20 (penalty
for nonregistration they are always ready
with the explanation that they are acting
as egenta tor someone who Is registered.
"Not long ago I had a case of a woman
who actually borrowed money from a
money lender and then lent it out again to
poor people "at the exorbitant rate of 1
pence on tha shilling per week."

ths folowlng letter to the European:
"The Russian censorship. Infringing all
conventions of the Inttmatlonal Post
union, takes upon itself to seise or blacken
out the newspapers or printed matter
destined for Persia. Tho European reaches
me only at rare intervals, the numbers in
which the ignominies of ciarinm are un
veiled being ruthlessly sailed by the Rus
sian officials. The same thing haprens
wtth other Journals.
. "It would perhaps be interesting to put
the following question to the authorities
concerned: 'Has a nation belonging to tha
Postal union the tight of censorship over
papers or printed matter in transit, but
destined for another nation, likewise be
longing to the Postal unionr The Rus

CniTISH FEAR POPULAR VOTE
Utile Hose for Rprete ntatlve Gov
ernment In Transvaal at
JOHANNF-SBURO, July J0.-Ppr.lal
Cablegram to Tha Bee. The question of
representative government, which has been
repeatedly raised during the lt twelve
months, only to be dropped shortly after
wards, la aaln occupying a large share of
puhllo attention. Unless It Ja found neces
sary to hnid an extraordinary session cf
tho :esrls atlvs council the current session
will tie tl-e last of the present council
which Wis nominated for two years only.
In ordinary circumstances the new council
would be formed In April or May next year
and . would meet In Jur.a It is unlikely,
however, tht public, opinion would ac
quiesce In the formation of another nomi
nated council a year hence, even supposing
that Lord M liner btd ever thought of pro
longing tho present system, and I under
stand that the govemm-nt will be asked
during tho present aewlrm to declare its
intentions regarding :he grant of some
measure of representat'.on ta tlie people of
There Is & conflderable amount of. wild
talk on the subject cf representative gov
ernment. In the first place. It Is generally
taken for granted that the government will
resolutely oppose Its Introduction, whereas
nothing Is, further from Its intentions.
Two years ntto it was very obvious that
nothing of this nature could be attempted,
but a stepping stone was devised by the
nomination of the present council for two
years. When tills period la concluded It
naturally rests with the country to Indi
cate for the consideration of the Imperial
government the form the wishes take with
regard to the administration. One point
remains uncontrovertible namely, that
Lord Mllner in the past has never shown
himself slow of voice to support' any gen
eral expression of the opinion here, and la
not likely to fail tho Transvaal on this oc
casion. As a matter of fact there is a
great difference of opinion In regard to the
advisability of granting representatlvs. rcV'
eminent at the present Juncture. The peo
ple who are making most noise are those
who are clamoring for immediate repre
sentation as the only panacea for real or
Imaginary grlevancea, without stopping to
think out the details or even, the signifi
cance of its introduction.
This week, for the first time, a note of
warning was struck in public by Mr. Abe
Bailey, who in sound speech pointed out
what would bo entailed by the Immediate
grant of representative government. An
election in the near future, he said, was
bound to be fought on racial lines. The
figures of the census give approximately a
proportion of fourteen Dutch to ten British,
and his experience taught him that 87 Vi
per cent of the Dutch voted as against 47H
per cent of the British. That roughly
represented one Boer as equivalent to two
British when It came to a vote. Tha
natural scheme of representation would be
a parliament of thirty-six; one-third nomi
nated and two-thirds elected. Of tha
twenty-four elected members, then fifteen,
by this computation, would be Dutch .and
nine British. Again, when the country re
ceived representative government it would
probably find that it was not exactly what
it expected. An outcry for responsible gov
ernment Would follow, and, tho British sec
tion would then be In a hopeless minority.
Mr. Bailey further reminded bi audience
that. it hi'Jl. taken Iffy ye.r to set a
progressive majority in Capo Colony,
STOCK OF IVORY'; IS LARGE
Comes - from ' Store fa Africa
Known Only to tho
LONDON, July SO. (Special Cablegram to
The Bes.) Calculations as' to tha number
of slain elephants represented by the acre
of Ivory recently displayed before the
queen at the London docks point to the
fallacy which still prevails that elephants
are killed for their tusks.
"More ivory is sold each year In Lon
don," said Mr. Hales, the largest' Ivory
broker In the metropolis, to an Express
representative, "than would be produced
If ail the elephants In tho world were killed.
"The ivory supply comes from vast stores
laid up for generations by the native chiefs.
They know where the elephants' cemeteries
are, for these animals go to a certain spot
to die. This is how Ivory is obtained.
"When the chiefs want a little money or
other necessaries they barter a portion
of their atock. Ivory to them is what
gilt edged securltiea aro to English people."
Mr. Halee pointed out the result of the
tax which was placed on the importation
of Ivory Into England.
"It was imposed," he said," "with the idea
of stopping the slaughter of elephants,
but such a thing is so rare that it did not
need any such restriction. As a result of
the tax ivory leaves Africa and Egypt by
the Congo and goes to Antwerp.
"In 1SK7 Antwerp did not sell a ton of
Ivory. Last year it sold S65 tons, against
London's 2o5. In lbif, London's sales
amounted to 30 ton.
"Besides elephant tusks the teeth of rea
horses, walrus tuaks and boars' tusks are
used for Ivory.
"The market price for tdephant tusk Ivory
ranges from 15 to 90 per hundredweight;
sea horse teeth fetch from 7d a pound to 4il
a pound and boars' tuaks are $d a pouud."

CHICAGO, July SO. The conflict between

of the opposing Interests seem as deter

The packers tonight declare they have

employers, the strike leaders assert that
the victory Is with the workmen and thot
it will be a matter of but a short time

packers, emissaries from these four skilled
trades sought to learn upon what terms
the strikers' would be reinstated should
they return in a body. The answer the
packers say tbey gave to these peace mis
sionaries was that the strikers would be
re-employed, as fast aa conditions might
warrant, but only as individuals, and not
as members ot any union.
The strike leaders disclaimed any knowl
edge whatever of any action taken by the
four unions and repeated; their assertions
that the outlook for victory for the strik
ing workmen was more satisfactory than
President's Help Not Needed.
During the afternoon there was an at
tempt on the part of disinterested parties
to Induce President Donnelly of the Butch
ers union to appeal to President Roosevelt
to offer his good offices and bring the strike
to an end. Mr. Donnelly refused to con
sider the proposition.
"We are winning the strike and need
no help from the president," sold Donnelly.
"There may be a few desertions from our
ranks, .but they are comparatively few and
do not hurt our cause to any extent. All
talk; about the strikers being on the verge
of starvation is nonsense. . Up to date
there have been about , per cent of the
eiltirenumber of strikers who have applied
for relief. We are prepared to carry on the
strike indefinitely, having stations well
equipped to supply all our-men with food
and the distribution will be increased as
the strike continues." . (
President Donnelly 'left tonight for
Omaha, where he will address a meeting
of the strikers tomorrow. He will also
visit Kansas City and Bt. Joseph and will
return to Chicago next Thursday.
Stuck Handlers Continue Work.
A committee from the striking trades mot
the officials of the Union Stock .Yards and
Transit company today In reference to the
work of the live stock handlers. After the
situation had been canvassed it was de
cided to permit the men to continue hand
ling live stock both for tha packers where
the union men are on strike and the Inde
pendent concerns until some method might
be devised whereby the Union Stock Yards
and Transit company could be protected
from possible Injunction proceedings for
discriminating against the big packers.
The packers continued today to add to
their forces of nonunion men. During the
day 800 strike breakers, most of them
white men. arrived at the stock yards.
Against this arrival of new employes was
reirlHtered the desertion of 301) men who
have bean taken into the yards since ths
The relief stations opened today by the
packing trades relief committee were be
sieged all day by men and women seeking
food. By evening all the supplies in the
stations had been given away. Several
hundred persons who had failed to reach
the counter until too late 'were turned
The strikers say the reason the supplies
gave out so quickly was because of hun
dreds of outsiders taking advantage ot the
opportunity to secure free provisions.
Uesolntlons Drawn I'p.
Before a meeting of the allied trades
which was held today assembled It was
disclosed that A. resolution would be intro
duced requesting that President Roosevelt

prosecution against the big packing plants
which two years ago were permanently en
joined from combining to fix prices not

the best interests ot the entire country are
prejudiced by the great strike which has
affected all parts of the country and that
widespread misery has been caused.
