At a meeting recently held at tha Cork
County 'Council an Important resolution
was passed on the motion of Mr. O'Neill
and directed' to' be aent to tha chief sec
retery. The resolution demanded a ape
cial flsherlee department, and for Irish fish
the same right to a distinctive government
brand that had already been accorded to
Scotland. Timothy Bheehy seconded the
resorutton and pointed to the very apeclal
advantages offered to Scotland and tha
'consequent enormous development of the
deep sea rlsherles.1- "They would find out."
he said, "that for the apaca of twenty
one yeara. after tha establishment of tha
Scotch Fishery board, the government
subsidised the fisheries of that, country
to tha extent of nearly $8,000,000. with tha
result that While the Scotch fisheries era-
ployed ''at the. present time about 140,000

A very curious question came up at tha
Merionethshire education committee at
the County halt, Bala, recently. It con

the Teat tnlog Urban district oouncll on-
closing a copy of their medical officer's
report, in, which, .It. wag recommended, in
order to check tha prevalence of diph

metal-bandied penclle should be resorted
to Instead of lead pencils. Tha report
contained tha following passages: "Tlys

LONDON. June i. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) Terrible predictions concerning
what will hspr n to this poor old earth
during the next twenty-five year are brln
made at the Congress of Prophets at
Exeter hall. .
The prophets of disaster were In Httenr--nce
at a "prophetic and second advent
.on fere nee. "and while they differed some.
what in details, they all agreed that f "
end of the world Is at hand. Thev .N"&
not nulte sure whether the final fit "
' '
will come 'oil May Z, 193. or A JsJ
hut they axe nuite sure ths
rtatea will prove to be the
mere can De no ao. ,cft
has nearlv outlived Its " the
prophets declared. The ' and earth
quakes which hsve afnlrted"'lt recently are
proof positive, and all that is required to
fulfill the prophecies Is , the coming of
Anti-Christ, who Is somewhat unkindly
Identified with Napoleon.
The chancelleries of Europe will no
doubt be Interested to learn that an entire
readjustment of the political divisions of
the weatorn world Is coming. Between
now snd 1!09 the twenty-two states into
which the original territory of the Roman
empire Is now divided will be renrganlxed
In ten . allied kingdoms, and then Anti
Christ, or Napoleon, will arise. Hi- will
make his first political npperrance as kins:
of 8yr!a, bu In im he will attack and
conquer France, and then he will extend
his rule over the rest of the ten kingdom.
There will be 10.000,000 Christians in the
world at this time, the prophets declare,
but evidently they will not all be equally
deserving of favor, for In 192 or 1926, 144,0
of them win be translated to heaven, while
the other 9,8M,000 will be transported to a
desert near Mount Sinai, where they will
have to wait three and one-half yeara.
Kev. Mr. Baxter presented a glowing pic
ture of the delights of life In the desert
of Sinai. ' .
"It will be a atrange congregation, In
which there will be no distinction of rank,'"
he said. "Food and water will be brought
by angelic hands, and the time will be
spent in reading the Bible, hearing ser
mons and attending prayer meetings. 14
will be a good time for the nonsweated
workers, who will look upon It as a pleas
ant picnic and an enjoyable holiday. At
the end 'of the three and one-half yenrs
the pious will be translated to heaven, as
the 144,000 were before them.
Everywhere else Anti-Christ will have
full away. In all the cities and towns of
England his image will be placed In the
principal squares and the soldiers and po
lice will bring all the Inhabitants mcn
women and children before it. Those who
refuse to worship the Napoleonic Caesar
will be taken to a scaffold and have their
heads cut off. Those who accept tho wor
ship of fhe Image will be branded on their
foreheads and right hands with 466, which
Napoleon's names, singly or conjointly, will
contain as the total of the numerical value
of their letters In the Greek language."

PARIS, June 2. (Special Cablegram
to The Bee.) Curious reports come
from St. Petersburg. One of these
reports is to to the effect thst it
Is Count Wilte's ambition to be sent to
Paris as ambassador and aucceaaor of M.
de Nelldoff. This would undoubtedly
cause very great embarrassment In Paris.
Count Wltte is notoriously pro-German In
his sympathies, and only looks to France
as a source of supply for the Ruaaian
finances. As he has been prime minister and
may be so again, the French government
could not go to the point of declaring him j
persona non grata. At the same time he
would be leas able to give pro-German di
rection to Russian policy than he would be
If still prime minister of Russia In dally
communication with the cxar.
Another report la that the count was
treated so handsomely at the time of the
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, peace con
ference that he la anxious to go to Wash
ington aa ambassador. Indeed it begins to
appear as though Madame 'Rumor has ac
credited Count Wltte to almost every court
n the world except that of Japan.
Germany and the Mohammedans,
One thing that in making the French
government anxious Is the unrest among
the native population In Its African col
onies. ' Though little lias transpired In the
press there Is reason to believe that both
In Tunis and Algeria there la a certain
ferment among the Mohammedan popula
tion. This is due ' to the Increuse of tha
Kslser's prestige as the "protector of
Islam." For years the Turks have looked
to him to support them in the councils of
Europe, and since his Tangier adventure
thla has spread to Morocco, Tripoli, Al
geria and Tunis. Officially, of course, this
s denied by the WIlhelmHtrasse. but tha
German emissaries who spread this legend
are not all officially in touch with tha gov
ernment. " Every German doing business

The Information recently ..received from

Btlelow Haa taken ill. as It looks Ilka as if
alnca hie temporary and enforced retire
ment from clfflce, the police alone were the
masters of German policy, both home and
foreign.. To the onward observer the trend
of German policy for the last four years
seems so simple that ' the. French are
tempted to seek some hidden explanation
for it, because If there are no unexplained
motives, the kaiser seems to be playing va
banqua to an extent that seems incredible
, Glimpse .at German Poller.
Five years ag"o the balance of power In
Europe was as nearly perfect aa possible.
On one side was the triple alliance of Ger
many, Austria and Italy, and on the other
dual alliance of France and Russia. Great
Britain might by throwing lta-weight on
either aide have played the role of arbiter
of Europe. Then came the Transvaal war.
which awakened in Germany. the idea that
England was a brasen figure with feet of
clay. That eeerued to Wllhelmstraasa to
eliminate the moat dangerous factor. When
therefore, Russia showed an Inclination to
plunge Into tha . far eastern adventure.
Germany rendered It possible by the kaiser
giving the caar, at Welsbaden in IKS, his
promise that he would take no advantage
in . Europe of the fact that Russia had
withdrawn lta troops from the German
frontier. All through tha war Russia had
the actlva .support of Germany. Herr
Bellln of tha Hamburg-American Una and
Dr. Wiegand of the. North German Lloyd
company put the whole of the resources of
these two moat powerful corporations at
the disposal of tha Russian governnie-
Anyone who knows the footing of abso
lute intimacy on which these two gentle
men, particularly Herr Ballin, stand with
the kaiser, ia aware that thla waa the
direct order of tha kaiser. If the govern'
ment had frowned on tha affair, the North
German Lloyd would not have dared to
sell a ship to Russia, nor could the Ham
burg-American irne hava coaled Rojestven
sky's fleet.
Eur far tha Germans.
Germany's policy- waa clear. If Russia
"won out" in tha far east It waa bound
to Germany by a debt of gratitude for
services rendered; if, on the other hand.
it ' waa , defeated, . tha debt waa all the
greater and Germany had a possible enemy
the less. This is what the English mean
when they say to "run with the hare and
part with the hounds," a some what difficult
operation. Tha curious thing waa that
Russia's natural allx, Franca, waa help
leas. The Anglo-Japanese alllanoe simply
tied Its hands.
Every t hi Dg want according to German
ideas, exoept one thing, and that was the
rapprochement - between England and
France. Count Buelow had counted on the
rival alliances to bring about antagonism
He did not reckon on the fact that, aa
neither power could afford to oppose the
other, they would infallibly come together.
The Anglo-French convention came like
bombshell on tha German Foreign office.
It was only after Mukden that Franca got
its lesson, and everybody knows that It
lost nothing en tha keeping.
. It wus at this point that Germany
mistakes began, ant tUase have two ex
planatlona. The first is the kaiser's ten
dency to pass over his constitutional ad
vlaera and listen to all points of Irrespon

Luoanus, General Von Hulaen Haeaeler,
Count von Eulenburg snd all the persons
of his Immediate entourage have his ear

imperial chancellor and the secretary of

Commission Formulates a Plan
Whieh Separation Is F.aally
PARIS. June 2 iSpeclal Cublegram to
The Bee.) Paris like tendon Is having Its
divorce agitation. After resolving that j
love should be made legally compulsory ,
in wedlock, the unofficial marriage reform
commission, which has been carrying on
Its labors for a long time past, lins now ,
come to the vast subject of divorce. Above J
all, it has sfflrmeil perfect equality between
the sexes as regunls the dissolution ns
well as the contracting of marriage. ;
French law, like English law. Is hardef
on wives than on husbands, and miscon
duct alone, without aggravating circum
stances, Is a sufficient ground for divorce
when committed by the woman, but not
'hen committed by the man. However,
the radical reform proposed Is divorce for
ln-ompatibllty, not merely by mutual
consent, but on the petition of either of
the parties. French law does not as
does that of England refuse divorce when
both hushanl and wife sre convicted of
misconduct; that Is to say, In esses when
divorce Is most needed. But It vetoes
divorce by mutual consent. The latter
ihould, according to the reform commis
sion, be allowed with the least possible
hindrance of formality, on the principle,
that love, being legally compulsory .In
wedlock, the married state should be
severed when both parties agree that
they love one snother no more.
On the same principle either party should
be able to obtain divorce, even without
the conaent of the other. If love has
cooled on one side and not on the other.
the commission pities, the constant one.

divorce would not be made easy. It would
be compulsory for the parties to go on
living together for two years after the
first petition of one of them, which
would have to be renewed every six
months during that time, as a warranty
that the petitioner was quite sure of his
or her feelings, snd not acting on a
whim. Among the grounds sufficient for

ROME, June 2. (Special
of Vesu-
to The Bee.) An ascent
ius ' just made by Prof.
Investigate the changes made In
the crater and on the summit by the
recent eruption reveals some Interesting
facts. Cook's funicular railway, with its
station at the summit, has completely dls-
ppeaxed. the very rails and telegraph
poles being destroyed, only a few yards
of the rails remaining, but all "twisted
and wrinkled. The cone haa now a diame
ter of about 1,600 metres.- There Is no
more -eruption of lava and (.hat of smoke
has almost ceased, but from time , to time
sulphurous gas arises. .The great' portion
of file cone which had fallen Is still warm,
so that . the persons visiting and walking
on- it hava to keep constantly moving
"it elr shoes get badly burnt. Mattucci
was desirous of measuring the diameter
f the crater, tut the Impetuous wind and
the puffs of arhes prevented him from
placing tha measuring apparatus aa It waa
necessary. A brigadier of carbineers, to
whom a rope was tied, one end of which
was held by his companions, ascended tha
edge of the crater, but he could only get
a glimpse of this extinct caldron, for tha
rise of sulphurous gases rendered it neces
sary for him to descend quickly. He saw,
however, that inside the cone preserves
its funnel-like shape, but that it la very
much enlarged. Matteuccl calculates that
the height of Vesuvius has been lowered
by 66$ feet during the eruption. That has
been caused by the fall of the cone or
sides of the crater. Such changes ss
these a lowering and elevstlon of the
summit hava scoompanied the greater
eruptions of this volcano.

governments who were represented at the

share assigned to each high contracting
power In tha Moroccan State -bank under
the Algeciras convention. The Bunk of
Spain has agreed to cover the Spanish
share in the Moroccan State bank, this
having been considered by the government
and ; the board of the Bank of Spain to
be the most advisable course with a view
to prevent even a part of the share from
falling Into the hands of other foreign
shareholders likely to be eager to exercise
influence in the Stata bank and in tha
finances of Morocco. A Spanish auditor,

WASHINGTON. June 2-The senate to
day received the conference report on the
railroad rate and statehood bills and
heard the announcement of the result of
the deliberations of the committee on priv
ileges and elections In the case of Senator
Snioot. In the case of Senator Smoot,
Senator Burrows, who made the statement
as chairman of the committee, asUel that
a day be fixed for the consideration of the
subject, but objection was made because
the ntflclal report wus not ready for con
sideration and on that account the further
consideration of the subject was post
poned. There was no discussion of either
the statehood or the rate question.
The consideration of the joint resolution
prescribing a policy In the purchase of
Panama canal supplies consumed the major
part of the session, and It ended by the
adoption of the resolution by practically
a party vote.
The democrats sought In msny forms.
but in vain, to secure the. adoption of an
amendment that would commit congress
against the protective system. The only
amendment adopted was one suggested by
Mr. Pettus providing that bids shall be
from the lowest responsible bidders.
After passing a large number of private
pension bills the senate adjourned until

In practically all essential details the
conferees on the railroad rate bill agreed
to the measure as It was passed by the
senate. The report was signed at about
4 p. m. and almost Immediately presented
to both houses. It shows that the senate
receded from six amendments, two of
which merely change the numbers of sec
tions, while twanty-elRht of Its amendments-
were retained verbatim, and the re
maining seventeen were redrsfted and re
tained under different phraseology.
Senator Tillman, ohairfnan of the senate
conferees, gave notice that he will urge
prompt action in the senate. ' It Is safe
to say the report will be acted' upon by
the house with the utmost dispatch.

The next amendment ia that prohibiting

much more stringent, all excepted classes
being eliminated and either to Issue or re-

The Elklns' commodity amendment was
