ST. PBTERSBL'RO, Aug.. 11. The gov
ernment attache much Importance to the
defeat of the constitutional democrat In
the lemstvo election now .under way. For
year the provincial lemstvos have been
the centers , of the liberal movement and
practically all the constitutional democratic
leadera have been prominent in temstvo
work. Now,' a candidate for re-election,
they are going down to defeat. M.
Kakoshkene, -next to M. Rodltcheff. the
most brilliant of the constitutional demo
cratic orators in the outlawed Parliament,,
ha been defeated by-Count Sheremetleff,
the notorious, Reactionary, and yesterday
two constitutional aenpocrats were de
feated at Samara, .-Vf
While these, .results Certainly indicate a
reaction of sentiment against the advanced
program of the constitutional democrats. It
should be pointed out that the nobility and
landed proprietor have the dominant in
fluence In ,Centstvo ej eotlee.. 'and the de
feat of the constitutional 'democrats prob
ably represents more,, their1 hostility to the
principle of the" forced "expropriation' of
land, to which the constitutional demo-,
era ts are committed," than enmity toward
the purely political . part'of their program,
v landlords Are I'nltlna. , . t
Nevertheless the tmporUuit landed Inter
est,, reactionary or liberal, are uniting
and lining up In favor of. the, government
as against the Parliament' radical agra
rian program. There are strong reasons
to 'believe that It ts the Intention 'of. the
Stolypln mtr Isliy, If thing move normally,
to support the candidate of 'the regenera
tlonlats, who are expected to amalgamate
with the Octoberlsts, whether the co-operation,
of the right wing of the constitu
tional democrats Is secured or not. ' A
significant symptom of the radical change
n the situation produced by the miserable
failure of the general strike is the fact
that the majority of the social democratlo
leaders who, a fortnight agq, were Its most
active promoters, are now In 'favor of
turning their attention to the coming 'elec
tion. They have already begun- to can
vas the situation for their candidates.

consideration' will be given to plans of com

The failure of Charles Speer at Corbett

Debar who under the nam "of Laura Jack
eon waa sentenced on December 20. Jul,
to seven years penal? servitude for connec
tion with an Immoral i (Pblt, known as
"the theocratic onfty' of 'which her
rcpntcd husband, Theodore- Jackson was
the head, has been liberated from Aylus
bury prison under ticket of leave, having
obtained ihe maximum reduction of sent
ence by good behavior.
Mme. Diss Debar has been known under
many names In the L'nlted States and
Great Britain, but her greatest notoriety
waa achieved as the perpetrator of a so
called spiritualistic deception by which
Luther R. Marsh, of New York, was In his
old age stripped of lUs fortune he had
accumulated In the practice of law.
Though claiming to be. the daughter of
King IxjuIs I, of Bavaria and Lola Montcx,
she was In fact the daughter of Prof. John
C. F. Salamon, once jof Washington and
Kentucky. V .- t
She became the WlfS of Joseph M. Diss
Debar In the seventies and later traveled
about the country representing herself as
the personification ot joccult powers and
tne revealer of -hidden truths, spiritualis
tic and other, and in this way, -while liv
ing Jn Washington square, New York, she
met Marsh and by meana of alleged spirit
materialisations and spirit painted pictures
so Infatuated htm that he gave her large
sums of money and deeded to her his
home in Madison avenue. About this
time General Diss Debar . left the adven
turess, who went to live at the Marsh
home, and also hired apartments where she
officiated as a priestess, of spiritualism and
won great notoriety.'
Suit was brought to show her up a an
Imposter, and ehe wa charged js-itb con
spiring te defraud -Marsh. ' -Her trial re
sulted In her conviction and she was
sentenced to a tern of imprisonment. On
her release she went to Europe, then re
turned to this country and going to the
west, got Into more difficulties through her
representations of bogua spiritualism.
I'nder the name of Vera P. Ava she fell
Into the hands of the Chicago police, who
sent her to the ipArtibentlary at Jollet for
two years Released from that Institution
she married William J. -McGown In WH6 at
Chicago. Mr. McGowYi.'like Marsh, was a
man of wealth, but this did not deter her
from the practice of fraud. In 1899 she
Was run out of New Orleans with Theo
dore Jackson, whose wife she then said
she was. A year later .she turned up In
Cape Town. South 'Africa, where she called
herself Helena and . Jaokson called himself
Horos. OccultUrrt and. -hypnotic perform
ances were the -order there, and one of her
South African dupes, a wealthy contractor,
gave his money to the woman to establish
a colony of - brotherly love. Soon after
wards the couple went to London where
they promoted the Theocratic ' I'nlty or
ganization, scandals vTB connection with
which led to their arrest in September, 1901.
The trial, which continued at intervals
through three months, developed facts of
such loathsome character-that several of
the London paper excluded from their
column all reports -of the proceeding In
court. .- . ..-''- .
Mr. Justice Blgham summed up strongly
agalpst the prisoners,;-saying It was diffi
cult to conceive of tnofe,-revolting and
abominable conduct vUxVn that which had
been attributed to tJh!m, The Jury returned
a verdict of gullr-I-,wNrupon -the Justice
sentenced Jackson to fifteen , years penal
servitude and his reputed wife to seven
yeara penal servitude.

"Kansas Ctf ffasYftlcen si peculiar method

city. 'The dry cotiticU tias passed an or

has. by' an official census, ' 400,000 popula

be granted ' for each Increase of 1,000 In
the population. Thli has the appearance
of throwing out an Inducement to the peo

In the number of Inhabitants.
The ordinance also provides the licenses
can be transferred by the owner and they
may be renewed until there has been a
violation of the law. when the license Is
cancelled. As new licenses cannot bo Issued
to take the place of those cancelled, they
become very valuable and It Is believed
saloon keepers will be very careful not to
disobey the law, as the cancellation of the
license would not only put them out 'of

large financial loss." ' "

FAMOUS SONNET SCOFFED AT
Ina-alU "Opportunity" Pronoaaeed
Rank Nonsense by a College
President Edmund J. James of the Uni
versity of Illinois, In hi address to th
graduating class, sharply criticised the
sentiment of "Opportunity," the famous son
net of John J. Ingalls. The sonnet follows:
Master of human destinies am I!
Fame, love and fortune on my footsteps
Cities and fields t walk; I penetrate
Deserts and seas remote, and, passing by
Hovel and mart and palace, soon or late
1 knock unbidden once at every gate!
If sleeping, wake if feasting, rise before
I turn away. It is the hour of fate,
And they who follow me reach every state
Mortals desire, and conquer every foe
Save death; but those who doubt or hesi
tate. Condemned to failure, penury and woe.
Seek me in vain and uselessly Implore.
I answer not and I return no more.
"I do not believe," said President James,
"there is an equal number of beautiful
llnea In tha English language which contain
more unmitigated nonsense than ' Ingalls'
'Opportunity.' If you take up each Job as
you come to It, opportunity will be chasing
after you Instead of your chasHs; after
"It I not a single opportunity which comes
to a man, it Is a train. It Is a never
ending procession, some small, some large,
growing perhaps smaller and more insig
nificant as the years flow on, but ever and
always opportunities too numerous, too
great and too large for us to utilise fully,
"It is not opportunity that Is lacking.
It Is Isck of power on our part. If you
take up each Job as you come to It, throw
yourself Into It with your full powers, be
fore long you will be getting ready for the
next higher opportunity, before long you
will find yourself among the most efficient
people of your generation. Opportunity
will be chasing after you Instead of your
chasing 'after opportunity."

of the Dreyfua family, wa militarism, for

A man may lie In a business deal, and If
the lie Is ' so absurd that common sense

have to serve a sentence In prison. He
cannot plead that If t';s person defrauded
had Investigated thoroughly the manner
of parting the victim from, his money he
would not have been deceived. Repreeents

Rich Food ; Value
of Pabst Beer
Good Reason Whjr the Finest Bottled
Beer Should Be la Every Home. t -
There Is no beverage itiore healthful Snd
none more satisfying '.snd refreshing than
good beer. That is why we ssy Mtat Pabet
Blue Ribbon Beer, the choicest of all bot
tled beersr should be Jn. every home., where
things to eat and drink era valued .accord
ing to their purity, cleanness .and) actual
food strength. Before or with your meals
It is appetising and Invigorating and at all
times It Is a, cool, refreshing drink .;
Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer Is the superior
of all - beers In cleanness 'and purity and
also in food value.. This Is because of th
Pabst exclusive eight-day method, of mak
ing malt. Malt 'la the soul and 'body of
beer, and the richer the! malt ihe more
wholesome the beer. Malt Is mad from
barley by a progress of growth snd perfect
malt, Pabst eight-day matt, contains all
the food elements tt barley In predlgested
form.. ... --;
More brewers g.-ow their 'malt In four
days, but four-day malt. Is sn unnatural
development gt4 necessity , Inferior be
cause. In the rushed growth .of the grata,
Its vital food value Is thrown oft and lost..
By scientific experiments and sixty years
of practical brewing Pabet has proved that
eight days are .required to make perfect
malt. This gives the barley slow growth,
snd sll the food value of the gram 1s re
tained In Pabst eight-day malt. That ta
why Pabet Beer is so nourishing and
strengthening.. : ..- ' ' ''
