this. too. In SDlte of the aossln to the con- ! close of the speculative movement last year
irary, and tho various plays which have
lately peea made for parliamentary posi
tion. . And everywhere It Is being argued
that tho government is not inclined to drop
the education bill for this session.
This crista, apparently being forced in
1'arllament by the terms of the education
bill, hus forced Into unusual prominence
tba address just made by Whitelaw Reld,
the American ambassador, on educational
problems In America when recently pre
sented the freedom of the city of Dundee.
Tho cabled reports, and even the news
paper reports, have not done tho Ameri
can ambassador Justice, for It was not
until the American, ambassador had fin
ished his a'tfress that even the newspaper
men present became, aroused to the fact
that Mr. Reld had made what was In
reality an epoch-making speech upon the
subject of education, contrasting the sys
tem of England with the system of Amer
lea. , .
Relit Kot Interested.
Of course Mr. Reld himself did not have
the slightest, Intent that Ms remarks should
be used In conneetlon' with the present
controversy now ranging among people and
' members of Parliament, but It is difficult
to see how he can now escape the notoriety
which has been thrust upon him. .
Speaking of education. In America. . Mr.
Reld ld that In a. country controlled by
pular suffrage. and among a people pas
sionately convinced that the succes of their
Koverrujnant depended upon the widest dif
fusion, of Intelligence, it was evident that a
system of free publlo schools supported by
public 1 taxation Would Inevitably become
there a. fixed public policy. With two
systems In force It would be obvious that
Hi one where tuition waa free would grow
the faster, and therefore it waa equally
obvious that those who paid for their own
the stock went on increasing for some time
and rearhed close upon 700.000 tons In March
last, hut it now seems to te aecreamng
week by week.
The apparent cause of the recent ad
vance In warrant Is the fact that what was
only a hope or expectation when the Cleve
land speculation began has now become a
reality. America has come Into the mat'
ket two years later than the " aforesaid
speculators anticipated. And . America has
also come Into the market for Scotch ordi
nary Iron. But after all the purchases for
American, both of Cleveland and Scotch
Iron, do not seem In the aggregate to have
as Vet exceeded 100.000 tone.e That is but a
small proportion of our aggregate produc
tion, and but a flea bite In comparison with
American 'figures: It may be said that the
furnaces In the states are producing at the
rate of M, 000,000 tons per annum.

PEKING, Nov. 24. (Special.) The tea and
silk trades of China arc In a bad way
and there Is no use on the part of t lie
government to longer attempt to disguise
this fact. In 1M4 the silk represented 82
per cent of the Imports of the empire. Now
they account for only 45 per cent. The
commissioner of customs at Canton la au
thority for the atatement that the tea
Industry seems doomed.
The Ixmdon customs tn 1&04 registered
(.000 chet of tea, adulterated with filings
and sand; hence it may be Inferred that
the tea consumer alone are not to blame.
TIiIb shifting of the fa trade can best be
shown by the fact that In 1904 the United
Kingdom consumed lfi.S37,73) pounds of
China tea, as against 240.238.925 pounds from
India, and Ceylon, Hnd In 1905 only ,.V.0
pounds. Other countries will show an even
greater percentage of loss, though the sta
tistics are not as well kept as In the case

British and American commercial agents

The modernising of China Is procefuing
rapidly. The railways are heavily patron

showing great commercial activity along
the moat approved Yankee lines. One
single thing will give the outsider an Idea
of how the modern Peking is Improving
along modern lines. Though It will hardly
be believed, it is nevertheless the truth
that the best equipped of steam rollers are
used in flattening the streets.
The latest statistics would make it ap

cent public meeting under the auspices of
tho R. ottlsh Tempcnii.re legislation vail
the solicitor general for Scotland. Mr. Alex
ander Trc. N. C, M. P.. the principal
arker. said If It were practicable ho
would hold that the best cure for the drink
problem would be the extinction of the
drink traffic altogether, but he was a prac
tical politician, lie regarded the problem
not as a vice to bo extinguished, not as a
crfmo to be suppressed, but aa ft question
nf the halilta and the customs of the peo
ple. Now they were powerless to effect a
change In the habits of a nation unless
thev had at their back the vat over
whelming mass of public opinion. In his
opinion It would lie impossible to com
mand at the present moment an adequate
torce and volume of public opinion to abso
lutely prohibit the drink traffic In all parts
of Scotland, and it was now almost uni
versally agreed that If prohibition was to
be carried, at all It must be by a very
substantial majority, and the minimum
that had! been suggested even by extreme
temperance reformers was a two-thirds ms
Jorlty of the ''electors voting, or. a clear
majority of the electors on the roll. Now,
In favor of absolute prohibition they would
no doubt be able to count upon a generous
estimate 10 pr cent of the electors to giej
them steady support, but in order to carry
absolute prohibition they would require to
reinforce their ten out of ion by fifty-seven
out of the remaining ninety. He did not
dispute that In sparsely populated districts
they never would be lucky enough to se
cure fifty-seven out of ninety nonabstaln
ers In support of absolute prohibition. The
proposal was that nonabstalners. who were
In the vast majority. wett to have prc
sentocl to them only two alternatives ab
solute prohibition on the one hand or ki
ting things remain as they are on the other.
The result was that they could not con
I sclentlounly support either alternative. Tho
consequence waa that they were shut out
of the fighting ranks altogether, and tem
perance reformers lost the aid of men
whose aid waa absolutely essentia! If they
wero to attain succes. The consequences
were twofold. If tliey. failed to carry ab
solute prohibition they gave great encour
agement to the out-and-out supporters of
the drink traffic, and they seriously dis
couraged temperance reformers amongst
nonabstalners. In his opinion there was
another and a better way than to leave
things aa they are. If they could not find
it practicable to carry absolute, prohibition.

PARIS. Nov. 24. tBpeelal.) The membere
of the crew of the French Newfoundland
I cod-fishing vessel Chrlstophe Colomb. con
tinue to tell the most remarkable tales of
their disappearance. For they were un
heard of for over seven months, and had
long slnca been given up as lost.
. When brought to . Fecamp the boat waa
badly disheveled, tho mlssen meat being
missing. All of the members of the crew
wero In good health. ' They still had over
a ton of biscuit on bord and sufficient
water, but other provisions had given out,
and for two or three daya they had lived
on salted cod and biscuit. When the ves
sel slowly forged Ita way into the wide
rhajinel leading to Fecamp harbor, and
Us captaJu called out the name of the
man a novelty In the streets of Nsw York
and Ban Francisco. Then, too, the treaty
port trader his mind's eye fixed on trade
rather than upon religious subjects knows
little about the matter. lie Is quite likely
to argue rtg&liiMt the missionaries more so
than any of the educated Chinamen. If
arguments, will -not suffice the treaty port
trader can generally be relied upon to dig
up one or two atories of "rice" Christians
familiar to the early-comers.
One thing may be taken for granted. It
Is a absurd to srgue from old facts either
in America or :hina. A generation ago
there was no doubt some grounds for sus
pecting that ninny sd-callcd converts
adopted Christianity for what they could
get. The policy of making "rice" Chrts-
I lions, to use the: expressive phrase In the
I old days, wus even upheld by the wisest
j of missionaries. It has long si mo been
definitely abandoned. A generation ago
I men were often sent out as missionaries In
the Orient becauso they were not clever to
work at home. It Is claimed that thla has
all been changed and that the Orient now
sex; .ires for the missionary field the pick of
the Scottish and American colleges. Cer
tain It Is that many of these men were
tested by flm and blood during the recent
Boxer uprising and that they stood the test.

UERIJ.N; Nov. !4. (Special.) noma time

woman's club, where no distinctions of
nationality were to be observed.
The other evening Miss Hay, the club
secretary, made a speech which has caused
a split among the Berlin club women. She
vlokiinly. attacked the morality of the Ger
man women and suggested that they should
take as a model their American sisters. She
also Implored all American women living
In Germany to devote their energies to
raising the moral standing of German
omen. She concluded, "Wo must rsiso
them from the slough of Immorality In
which they live."
Hardly had these last words been uttered
when numerous German women present
stormed the platform, uttering fierce cries.
Miss Hay was with difficulty rescued from
the hands of the most excited of the Oer-
mans. Many or tne American women pres

rushed out of the room.
