Kaiser' Indnstry Aaaastnar.
Tha kaiser's Industry In making propa
ganda for his porcelain factory at
Cadlnen has excited some amusement, but
It Is probable that th average German Is
after all proud that the monarch has
shown sound business sens', though nat
urally, some ot those In the Industries Into
which the kaiser has entered, do not quite
like the competition. Cadlnen, by the way,
s a .handsome property, worth about
t2.OUO.O0Q, which was left to the kaiser by
one of his admirers, a wealthy Ilolatelner
who has ao direct heirs. There was some
criticism expressed at the time even be
cause the kaiser accepted the gift, but the
royal' house of. Prussia Is nons too
wealthy and has many claims on It. The
kaiser has six sona to provide for, and
Cadlnen has possibilities fn-it for one of
them. The Kronxllche Palais has, of
course, been handed over to the crown
prince. Prince Kite Fran haa been
given the oablnet house at Potadam, and
Prince August Wllhelm 1 to be given the
castle at tRrttln. But there are still more

Princes Victoria will also expect a resi

should be remembered that there are limit

County Mayo, against a farmer named
Keane and other farmers recently took
portions of Crannagh farm against tha
wishes of the United Irish league, and
ainoa then tha hostility towards him haa
been growing. Matters reached a climax
on the Sunday in queatlon when Keane and
a number of his friends were met at the
chapel gates by a large crowd of people,
who refused to permit them to pass into
Ule building to attend services.
No grabber here!" and "Away with
them!" the orowd shouted, and Keane) and
hla friends were forced to seek safety.
They wore pursued, but were not over
taken. Resolutions have been passed by meetings
of the United Irish leaguers held through
out North Mayo calling upon shopk.ep.
era and others not to supply the 'grabbers"
with goods of any description.
As a result of these tactics many of the
farmers have been unable to onter upon the
farms for which they sr paying rent.
Recent celebrations at BtewartMown,
County Tyrone, culminated in serious riots.
(iaeenstown Wants Ships.
In connection with the decision of the
White Star line that mall steamers sailing
from Southampton under the new arrange
ment shall call at Queens town only on the
outward voyage, but not on the return
voyage, a deputation from Ireland recently
visited Mr. Haunderson, manager of the
White Star line at Liverpool. Tne deputa
tion Included representatives of the corpor
ation ' of Owk, the Cork harbor commis
sioners, the Queenstown town commJsalon
ers, the Chambers of Commerce of Cork,
Dublin, Londonderry. Liverpool, Limerick,
Burnley. Bradford and Leeds. Among those
in attendance wre the lord mayor of Cork,
Captain Donelan, M. P., Sir Bdward Fitz
gerald and Mr. James Long, chairman of
the Cork harbor commissioners.
Captain Donelan, M. P., In Introducing
the, delegation, said In Ireland there was
very ' grave disappointment at the with
drawal of White Star line vessels from
Queenatown. Every : possible sapport. he
pointed out, had been given to th White
Star Un at Queenstowix and In Ireland
all of the Irish members of Parliament
were unanimously In favor of the retention
of Queenstown a a port of call for the
homeward bound steamers carrying Amer
ican malls. They considered that Queens
town was the beet port for malTs, not only
for Ireland, but for the whole of the north
Mr. Saunderson, after hearing all the
views, said tn coming to adopt the English
channel port they were Influenced by the
passenger as well as the mall traffic. He
emphasised fhe fact that all New York
steamer salting from Liverpool would con
tinue to call at Queenstown on both the
outward and fhe homeward trips, so that
there would be tio complete abandonment
of Queenstown. They had always been well
treated by the Queenstown authorities and
th facilities there were good.
Mr. Saunderson added thnt he would lay
th view of th deputation before Mr.
Brae Ismay, president of the combine, who
was prevented from meeting the deputation
owing to the serious Illness of a member
of his family, and said that thev would
take th matter Into serious consideration.
Dinner for MaeHamara.
Th appointment of Dr. MacNtmara to
th position of aeretary of the local gov
ernment board ha given a good deal of
satisfaction to th many friends of this
really brilliant Irishman, and recently In
honor of the appointment he was enter
tained at a dinner by hi constituents st
Camberwell, Irrespective of politics or
party. Tbe mayor of Camberwell was In
the chair and Mr. John Burns, Mr. Bonar
Law, the member for Dulwlck division of
Camberwell. and Mr. Hoare, who was Dr.
MacNamara's opponent at the general alec-
tlon, were present. The speech of Mr.
Burns on that occasion was notablo In some
of Its points. Thirty years ago, he said,
17B out of every 1.000 men who married had
to sign their names with a cross; now the
number was sixteen. Thirty years ago
SCO women out of every 1.000 that married
had to sign their name with a cross; now
the number Is only twenty.
In one of his brilliant diatribes on the
National Gallery of Ireland Mr. George
Moore described It as an unknown desert,
one of the waste places of Dublin, given
over to the aleepy porter and the amorous
nursemaid. Those who visited the gallery
during th past week or two had a different
experience. Interest In picture ts growing
In Ireland, It Is argued from th change,
though It Is admitted by many that Mr.
Moor often drew upon hla Imagination for
hi fact. At any rat th room of the
gallery war crowded during the daylight
hour when open. And now statistics have
been dug up to show that sven on ordinary
week days tha average attendance at the
Dublin gallery 1 higher in proportion to
th population than in th national gallery

PRECEDENT F0R JEROME
Scotch t'nse Recalled Where Defend
ant Was Adjndaed Insane
by the Prosecution.
GLASGOW, Arrll 20.-(Speclal.) The
"Old Cumnock poisoning cas" has been
one of exceptional interest. The accused
was charged with the murder of a lady
by the transmission through the post of
poisoned short bread addressed to his wife'
uncle, with the result that the lady, an In
mate of the uncle's home, partaking of
what appeared to be a friendly gift, died
suddenly. It was Indisputable that her
death was due to poisoning by strychnine.
The accused pleaded not guilty. In the
course of their Investigations the crown
ascertained that the accused had been aub
Ject to epileptic seizures over a long series
of years. The crown had him examined
by experts of hlxh standing In mental dis
ease. They pronounced him to be Insane
and unfit to plead. Thereupon th crown
considered that the high court should be
put In possession of thi Information In bar
of further proceedings. After consulting
specially with four other Judges the lord
Justice general directed the trial to pro
ceed. It was apparently a safe Judgment
In view of the strenuous opposition of the
prisoner. The trial did proceed and during
Its course the crown brought prominently
under the notice of the Jury many peculiar
Incident In the history of the deceased, to-
tnft. wtn the tvlance of distinguished
alienists. All apparently pointed to the
conclusion that the accused was Insane as
the result of chronic epilepsy. The de-
r.n. lrhmr-tried the Drocedure of the 1
crown as an Innovation and a serious In
vaslon of the liberty of the subject. It
was claimed that It was startling that
anyone should bo lluble to arrest on a
criminal charge and without his guilt
being affirmed or negatived, be liable by
order of a criminal court to confinement
as a lunatic. Borne of the most eminent
sttorneys of Scotland have, however, de
clared the procedure to b eminently hu
mane. Apparently the view of the defense
was that so soon as the crown was satis
fied of the prisoner's Insanity he should
have been released upon the other charge.
That could not be consistent, however, It
was pointed out, with the duty of the
crown to the public. Above all, as Lord
tDunedln pointed out. It was Incumbent
under the lunacy acts upon a Jury before
whom any accused was being tried to In
quire Into his Insanity whenever the Issue
was raised deliberately, either by the
prosecution or the defense. Under the
direction of the lord justice general, the
Jury found the prisoner Insane and ac
cordingly their functions ended.
SOCIALISTS LEAVE BURNS
London Federation Denounces Labor

LONDON. April . (Special.) There has
been a falling out between John Burns and
th social democratic federation. At the
recent session of the social democratic fed
eration of Carlisle he waa denounced a
"the most callous and reactionary prealdent
, t the local government board for a gen
The executive committee reported that
there waa nothing whatever for the so
cialists to . .regret In the recent defeat of
the progressives In London. "They mani
pulated the genuine socialist feeling
that waa In evidence when the London
county council came Into existence to bol
ster up the liberal party under another
name, with no Intention whatever of carry
ing out in the government of London tha
principles which they professed."
It was time, however, for the socialists
to set to work boldly "to counteract as far
as lies In our power the wholesale dis
semination of falsehood about socialism
and socialists with which London has been
deluged, with the unblushing effrontery
of unlimited and anonymoua monetary re
sources." It was resolved by seventy-two votes to
eight to instruct the executive council to
organise educational lectures throughout
London. A resolution to appoint a com
mittee to ensure a combination of the va
rious socialist organisations was met with
some opposition and It was only carried by
forty-seven to forty-three votes.
REAL TAX 0N BACHELORS
Hessian Parliament Derides to In
crease la Revenues by Making
Unmarried Men Pay.
BERLIN, April 20. (Special.) A tax on
bachelors has been imposed by the lower
house of the Hesse Parliament
The bill provides that In view of the pre
vailing dearness of food, rent, etc., for an
annual supplementary grant to be given
to persona In the employ of the atate whose
Incomes do not sxceed tCOO per annum. The
grant varies between (40 and 160. As the
bill stands, however, those who have only
personal responsibilities are to receive only
one-half of the grant.
A clause In the original bill ordained
that persona In the employ of the atate
who neither are nor have been married
shall receive only one-half this amount,
but an amendment was passed granting
mis run sum 10 oacnemrs wno maintain a
nome iot parents, relatives or suupieu
The Hessian government does not favor
this latter Idea, as It necessitates Inquiries
Into the private affairs of the Individuals.
It ts stated that locally the preference
thus shown to married over bachelor em- 1
ployes of the state Is approved, as offl
' dale are manifesting an ever-growing dlsln-
I cllnatlon to marriage.

John Temple Graves of Atlanta, Ua., thus
approached thfi conclusion o his speech
here tonight at the twenty-seventh annual
banquet of the Iroquois club. It was an
address of which the keynote was the
speaker s assertion that party lines in gmv

Other speakois were Gilbert M. Hitch

South Bond, Ind., who spoke on "Old

The subject assigned to Mr. Graves waa
"The Regeneration of Partlea'"
"Party ties In general," said the speaker,
"have never held so lightly as today. North
and south. In republican and In democratic
tanks, loyalty hangs by a hair. The re
publican party, formed upon federally
ideas and reborn and prospered upon 'the
Ideas of abolition, has progressed beyond
the federalist theory to privilege and be
yond the anti-slavery agitation to graft.
"The democratic party has been re
cruited so rapidly from the ranks of the
mighty tn trade that its platforms have
truckled, and In the last campaign It nom
inated a candidate whose actual spoken
commendation was based upon bald and
Infamous confession, 'He was not offensive
to the trusts.'
Times and Men Change.
"But times have changed and men have
changed with them. The cheap newspaper

strong enough to put Bryan to Indignity
and Hearst to shame? What republican Is
strong enough to reduce the Irrepressible
Roosevelt to the ranks of the orthodox in

Roosuvelt can coerce the thronged mag
nates of the trusts to a proper humility?
' "From the atalwart ranks of either party,
from th opposite aides of the republic
the rich and finished east and from the
virile and militant west there have risen
two great men, .who, more than all others,
are prevailing now to dethrone partisan
and to uplift the patriot,

"Mr. Bryan la great, because In all hla
life he has never feared nor hesitated to
champion his convictions against his party
and to put them In front of his. personal
Interest. He Is the first democrat of the

"Mr. Roosevelt has grown great because
he too has grown above the partisan.
Born and raised In the camps of privilege,
he came with a brave heart and open
mind to Washington. ' He followed ortho
dox In the weke of his party and In the
path of his predecessor. But one day, Wil
liam R. Hearst flung at his feet an array
of unanswerable statistics to prove the
Iniquity of the trusts. The challenge rang
against the brave man's shield, and Theo
dore Roosevelt was never the same man
again. He buckled on his sword and went
forth to war with the merger of railroads
under Hill and Harrlman. He haa never
sheathed alnce then the blade he bared in

"There they are these great men the
two greatest men In all the world. They
are American statesmen and patriots In

Limit Slse of Battle,
WASHINGTON, April 90. Critical re
views cf recent developments In Interna
tional affairs were Indulged at the speech
making session of the American Society of
International Law, which concluded Its first
annual meeting here today. Richard Olney
was perhaps the most caustic in his re
view of the policy of the United Btates re
garding Santo Domingo, and the acquiring
of the Panama canal sone, without com
pensation to Colombia.
John W. Foster announced as a fact that
President Roosevelt had proponed to some
of the leading nations of the world "that
we at least make a limitation on the elae
of vessels of war that shall be built In the
Mr. Foster called attention to Russia's
chsnged attitude on disarmament which, he
said. It favored at the first The Hague
conference, but opposed now.
Representative Richard Bartholdt spoke
of the necessity of making The Hague
conference permanent and aald that the
United States, with the Impetus toward
peace which President Roosevelt had
achieved, could accomplish this result by a
united demand at the next Tha Hague con
ference. Secretary Straus Presides.
Secretary Straus of the Department of
Commerce and Labor, who presided at the
meeting, opened the discussion with an
expression of the hope that should the
forthcoming conference at The Hague fall
to prescribe a limitation as to armament
that It would Issue a mandate that any
neutral nation supplying a warring nation
with money should be adjudged guilty of
a hostile act. Having for hla text "The
Development of International Law aa a
Science," Mr. Olney said In part:
"Within a comparatively short time new
doctrines, officially and unofficially, have
been given prestige by being described as
ths Monroe doctrine or as necessary cor
rollartes from It Under these It Is Intl.
mated that If an American state does not
behave Itself well in either Ita external
or Internal relations good behavior accord
ing to our own standards, of oourss It
may be forced by the United States lnt
doing the right thing, and If necessary may
have Its revenues sequestered and applied
by the United States according to the
latter's notions of justice and equity, '
"It Is plain that the. Monroe doctrine
cannot be Invoked In support of . any auch
pretensions; that they are seriously ob
jectionable as calculated to wound ths
pride snd excite the enmity of sll other
American states and as committing the
United States to undertakings of the most
vexatious, burdensome and dangerous
. Panama Deal Criticised.
Turning his attention to the isthmus of
Panama, Mr. Olney continued:
"The United States Is now executing a
great public work on territory which but
recently was the property ot a sister re
public. There Is no pretense that that re
public ever parted with Ita territory volun-
J Urlly Tne territory was practically
prop.iattd by the- United States, claiming
and It Is tha best justification the circum
stances affords to set as the "man
date of civilisation,' but If the United
States is to be deemed to have held a
mandate from civilisation to ' sequestrate
Colombian soli for a great public work. It
could be deemed to hold a mandate to see
that Colombia waa duly compensated."
The general topic of The Hague confer
ence and the development of International
law as a science was discussed by John
W. Foster, Prof. Theodore 8. Woolsey of
Conectlcut and Representative Richard
Barthoidt of St. Louis.
Officers of the aoclety were elected aa
follows: President, Ellhu Root; vloe presi
dents, Chief Justice Fuller, Justice David
