' ' The serious feature of the situation is that a Strike of printers was declared lo on political grounds,, which Is to last period of three days, but it may be ontinUed tonger in case of repressive meas- or arrests. A few of the leading dally newspapers hope to be able to Issue a single sheet giving telegraphic news, but the others will suspend publication entirely.

Tne ratification of the treaty of peace is formally announced this morning In the Official Messenger, which says that its operation began yesterday. The text of the treaty is not given. As a graceful mark of appreciation of the part he took in bringing about the conference at Portsmouth and the re sultant peace. President Roosevelt was the first person to be notified by the Rus sian government that Emperor Nicholas had' ratified the treaty. As soon as the emperor's signature bad been affixed to the instrument and before the treaty had been brought back from Peterhof for the counter, signature of Foreign Minister Lams dorf, the r.ews was sent directly to the president. Official notification by the French government, according to the Foreign office. followed several hours later, when Count Lamsdorf had completed the ratification by his signature- The government took no steps to make known to the people of Russia the fact that the emperor had signed the treaty, before the receipt of the official notifica tion that the Instrument had been ratified by the signature of the emperor of Japan and the first news therefore was communi cated through the Associated Press dis patch from Washington. As soon as the treaty had been fully ratified the Foreign office communicated the fart to the war, navy gnd Other ministries and thence or ders were lrsued to bring home some of the shire Interned In neutral hnrbors. The date for the exchange of prisoners of war has n6t Yet been fixed.

LONDON, Oct. 15 (Special Cablegram to The Ree.)-The arrival at the age of a of Lord Strathmore, the heir to filamle castle, and the theory that he -was Informed re garding the skeleton In the family closet, the tradition handed down from father to son regarding " secret of Giamls castle, has started s ! t deal of discussion rt- gardlng what elusion ha ; cent Burnt t vlous reason used in an I "I do not thin famous1 on from fat If Mrs. Fit; tpr were tragedies " histories fe iecret really Is. No con en arrived at, but a re mis castle, who for ob- lot care to-trave his name :w, said: there is much more in t, supposed to be handed son, than there would be rfs celebrated box of let d at Coutfs bank. The generation often become next. The wise precaution of a century or so soon degenerates into a traditional survival that Is Invested try out siders only with far more Importance than It really deserves. Still uhere Is certainly more at Giamls castle than can be explained by the ordi nary channels of our dally knowledge. Tou might, for Instance, tie a handkerchief to the window of every room from the inside and count the apartments , thus adorned. When you checked the total from the out side you would invariably find that one window escaped your attention. Again, there has been some mention of playing cards. Let me give a Concrete instance of what happened to a friend of mine at din ner there. I could make public his name, but, of course, I do not like to do It. He told us all about it when we met at a shooting party, to which he came down from Scotland. The guests had gathered Just before dinner at the end of the great dining hall at Glands. Just before they all moved In a playing card fluttered down from the ceiling. Before his host put his foot upon it my friend hsd time to see that It was the nine of diamonds. "The Curse of Scotland,'.' 1 think he called It. It was apparently accepted by those present as an occurrence usual to the place, but on which It was good form to make no remark. How ever, there was naturally some talk over the matter In the smoking room that night after Lord Strathmore had gone to bed and no explanation was forthcoming. Nobody dreamed of laughing at it, however." BRITISH COMPLAIN OF BOOTS Pay Leather from America Is Not as Good na the British . Product. LONDON, Oct. 15. (Special Cablegram to The Bee.) The British public intent on buying boots and shoes is confronted with two alternatives. Purchasers must either pay a bigger price for their boots and shoes or they must be content with Inferior articles in, which glucose and other materi als predominate over the real leather. This Is said to be due to tbe fact that for many yfears past the Americans have been buying up .English hides, adulterating them, and "dumping" them back Into this country artificially tanned and weighted. The "dumping" went so far as to reduce tho English tanners to the ranks of -mere Importers, and Brmondsey,,'tnstead of be ing the center ot the English tanning In dustry is now a "district of Importers. Interviewed on the subject Mr. Alfred Randall, the editor of the Boot and Shoe Journal, said: . . "The English tanning industry has been so reduced by foreign competition that we are largely dependent upon America (or leather. So great Is this dependence- that our market is always influenced by the operations of American tanners. "Boots and shoes are costing from 15 per cent to 2Q per cent more to produce than they did two years ago. The demand is for material 'at a price' and even today there are few people who have real'v learned that In boots and shoes the best is the cheapest. Many tan yards have been closed in England during the past twenty years for capitalists find that they can make more money and make it more easily by buying and selling than by manufactur- Ing."

(Feclal Cablegram to The Bee.) At a meetirt of the Old Guard Union testimonial furu Just held In this city the subject of the future of O'Donovan Rossa came up for dhsnisslrrn. Communica tions from Borrts-ln-Vssory, Sklbbereen, etc., were read. The honorable secretaries of the Sklbbereen O'Donovan Rossa testi monial wrote that In deference to the wishes of some of Rossa'i friends their committee had decided upon keeping tho fund open for soma time longer. The ex pected return of Mr. O'Donovan and his wife at an early date to Ireland had ma terially strengthened the decision come to. The Sklbbereen committee, like the Old Guard Union committee, had to complain of the tardiness of certain gentlemen and ' sssocialions In remitting the money col lected by them for tha testimonial. The chairman said he waa very proud of Cork for having unanimous.1 alerted Rossa to the position on the staff of the county council. The salary would not be very much, but supplemented by a little an nuity purchased from the proceeds of the testimonial fund It would be sufficient to render the old patriot a comfortable sub sistence for the rest of his days. With the view of augmenting the funds already in the hands of the Old Guard union, Mr. O'Brien suggested that a concert of Irish music should be held in the ro tunda or some other suitable building. Mr. O'Brien said that he hid already received numerous offers of aserritance from gifted artistes. At the next sheeting of the Old Guard union committer a program would be submitted and the members would then set to work to make the concert a thorough success. The suggestions made were unani mously agreed to and when Mr. Rossa re turns to Ireland he will be given a rousing reception. PICKPOCKET IS PATRIOTIC French Womnn fnys She Conflned Her Operations Entirely to Na tives of Germany. ' !. ' PARIS, Oct. 15. (Special Cablegram to The Bee.) In Paris the police have dis covered a woman whose peculiar sort of patriotism has been compared to' Boule de Sulf in Guy de Maupassant's story. " She was arrested recently for having robbed a German merchant of J350. To the magis trate she made a strange declaration. 8 ho said that her main object In life was to decoy Germans and rob them. She went about with them to cafes and music halls and while affecting to be very Interested in them she picked their pockets. . In this way she had annexed for several years past over (3,500. She had. picked the pockets of exactly sixty-seven - Germans and she was proud of It. As her reasdn for thus acting tho woman said that in 1870 her family in Normandy had been completely ruined by the German invaders, who stole her father's cattle, pigs, fowls and even plate. She was then obliged to go out as a dairymaid, but not belntt accustomed- to servitude she came to f arls and began waylaying and robbings Germans. . The magistrate listened to thid tale oalmly. It evidently made no Inutrelrion on him for he sent the new Boule K Suif to the depot, there to await trial.

CONDOLENCE FOR HISTRIONIC FAMILY Klnar Edward Sends General Hoblyn with a Personal Message from Illssself and Queen Alexandra. LONDON, Oct. 1G. That the body of Sir Henry Irving should And a resting place In Westminster Abbey appears to be a very general desire. An editorial In this morn ing's Daily Telegraph says: The nation will, we are persuaded, ask this honor for him with no uncertain voice, and we know we interpret the wish and feeling of the countrv when we plead for a public interment in the Abbey. The flood of tribute ot admiration and af fection is increasing. From King Edward downward men of all classes. Including the great church men, are giving publlo ex pression to their feelings on the sad oc casion, nearly all dwelling as much on Sir Henry Irvlng's personal character as on bis histrionic talents. Death Dne to Hard Work, It seems to be beyond doubt that Irving sacrificed himself by hard work. He had been advised a long time ago to give up arduous roles like that of Matthias In "The Bells," owing to the strain thrown on his weak heart, and only last week he had been persuaded to omit "The Bells" In future. It appears for several years past the weakness of the lungs had thrown an undue strain on the heart. Sir Charles Wyndham says that In- February last he begged Sir Henry to take warning and not to burn the candle at both ends with receptions In the morning and exacting performances In the evening. Trlbate from All Classes. Many Interesting touches are revealed In the tributes of Sir Henry's friends. For In stance, Forbes Robertson say that Sir Henry told him it was his financial suc cesses' in the United States that enabled him to create his success at the Lyceum theater In London. General Booth of the Salvation Army, Toole, the actor, and Sir Theodore Martin were among the veterans who hastened to express the sense of loss the world has sustained In the death of the distinguished actor. Nothing has yet been 'decided as to the funeral arrangements, pending the meeting of theatrical managers which Sir Charles Wyndham has called for toduy, and which probably will decide to ask the dean of Westminster Abbey to permit Interment in the Abbey. Condolence from King Edward, King" Edward and Queen Alexandra, through General Dlghton McNuugliton Probyn, keeper of the privy purse and extra equerry to the king, today sent a message of sympathy to the family of Sir Henry Irv ing, in which their majesties say: "He will, Indee'd, be a great loss to the profession 'of which he was such a dis tinguished member." Messages of sympathy have also been re ceived from President Roosevelt and Dr. Jules Caretle, on behalf of tbe Comedie Francalse.

GLOUCESTER, Mass., Oct. 16. -As a re suit of the policy recently adopted by the Newfoundland government to restrict American Ashing rights on the coast of Newfoundland, Congressamn Augustus P. Oardnor and Benjamin A. Smith, one of the largest vessel owners of this city, left for Washington to discuss the situation with Secretary Root. Originally It was decided that the col lector of port, William H. Jordan, and a committee from the Board of Trade should accompany Congressman Gardner and Mr. Smith, but this plan was abandoned. Inas much as it was felt that Messrs. Gardner and Smith weer fully qualified to deal with the situation. The object of the trip to Washington Is to obtain from the head of the State department an Interpretation of the treaty of 1W8, by which American fishermen mere guaranteed fishing rights on the Newfoundland coast. A similar trip to Washington was made last spring, but thus far no Interpretation of the treaty has been made by the Department of Slate. At the conference which will be hold tomorrow Congressman Gardner and Mr. Smith will ask Secretary Root for an Im mediate Interpretation. The vessel owners of this port say they are prepared to make a test case of the matter if any Gloucesterf vessels are In terfered with by the cruiser Fiona. The Newfoundland government claims New foundland fishermen are shipped at Glou cester, and In order that this cause of complaint may be eliminated the schooner Dauntless, Captain Charles T. Young, will sail from this port tomorrow with a crew of twenty-four men, all of whom were shipped 'here and none of whom belong to Newfoundland. Captain Young believes that he cannot' be Interfered with by the Newfoundland authorities and he is plan ning to sell his catch of herring to other Gloucester fishermen, who will bring It to this port.
