lias the b!rth of a child to the royal house
of Bpaln been awaited with greater anxiety
than at the palace In Venice, where dwells
. Don Carle, the pretender to the Spanish
throne, and the blrtti -of a eon has caused
In order to make clear the exact position
of the Spanish succession and to understand
the situation of Don Carlos, close study
of the more modern historical developments
cf Spain Is necessary. When King Carlos
IV, died he left two sons, Ferdlnund and
Carlo. Ferdinand succeeded to the throne.
Ills Drst two marriages were childless, but
hi third union, with Donna Maria Chris
tina, resulted In the birth of a daughter.
Donna, Isabella. As, however, the Salic
law forbidding the succession of women
prevailed tn Spain, she could not succeed,
end the heir to King Ferdinand was his
brother, Carlos. The members of the court
party, however, were bitterly opposed to
Don Carlos, and they managed to get
King Ferdinand to abolish the Salic law
by royal decree, ( thereby allowing his
daughter Isabella to become queen. When
Isabella finally did succeed, Carlos entered
a irotest based on . constitutional grounds,
but as he was a man of Indolent character
and utterly wanting In energy, he at first
did nothing more than to enter the protest.
A few years later an attempt to secure his
throne by force of arms was a failure,
end on hla death his son took up the
struggle and managed to keep a little life
!n the Carllat party.
When on account of her Improper life
Isabella, who by this time had a eon, Al-
. fonao, was driven from the throne, the
short-lived Spanish republic came Into be
ing. .With the aasassin-tlon of the presi
dent. General Prim, the republic came to
end and Frlnce .Amadous of Aosta, an
Italian prince, was elected king In spit of
the protests of Don Carlo. He soon tired
of governing such turbulent kingdom,
. nbdlonted and returned to Italy. It u
then that the present Carllst pretender
came promlnAtly to the front. He en
tared vigorous protest against, th auo
ctaaloa of Don Alfonso and followed this
up by calling his partisan to arms, and In
1873 bef an the Carllst waf which drenched
Spain, t lith fJood.
; .Dob . Carlo Lone.
After varying fortunes Don Carlos lost
the struggle and crossed the French fron
tier with the wrecks of his army. Blnce
then Jie ha been living in Venice awaiting
a faforable opportunity for renewing the
strucrle for hi rights.
Tills erve tn make clear the position of
Don Carlo. He and his supporters say
that hi great-uncle, King Ferdinand, per
formed a mere coup d'etat In abolishing the
a.,nn law. thnt the rLzhta of the brother
of King Ferdinand were clear and abso-
. lute under the law, and that K.tng -Aiionuu
XIII 1 a usurper sitting on a. throne to
which h has no right.
From a trlctly technical point of vfew
not only Is Don Carlos the legitimate heir
to the throne of Bpaln, but he is undoubt
edly the hetr to the throne of France a
well. It was for thi reason that he was
inii rmm French territory by the gov
ernment of the republic. It he should even
set foot In France he would Instantly be
arrested. A small but highly aristorcratlo
party1 exurts In France, known as the
' Blanc d'Eapagn." with the aim of plac
ing Don Carlo on the throne of France.
In fact, these French Carllsts are more
Carllst than the Spanish CarMsts them
eclve and they are very anxious to see
Don Carlo get the throne of Spain a a
stepping-stone to the throne of France.
It Is for this reason that the French re
publican government ha always favored
the Alfonslst party In Bpaln. Indeed,
though the fact is known to tew people. It
was the action of the French government
which caused Don Carlo to lose the last
Carllst war. In 1S73 Don Carlos' army had
the Alfonslst troop at their mercy, stra
tegically, for the latter had their backs to
the French frontier and were cut off from
the Interior of Bcaip. With the connivance
f the French government, the Alfonslst
al-my crosned the frontier Into France, se
cured provisions and ammunition from the
French arsenal at Bayonne, and then
marched bacic to Spanish territory, attack
ing the Carllsts from the rear. This ac
tion of the French government wa of
course, unexpected and could never have
been foreseen by the Carl 1st a The sur
prise wa complete and the wreck of the
army of the pretender wa eventually
driven on French territory near Blarrits,
and, of course, receiving not the slightest
encouragement from the French people or
the French government, was forced to dis
band. OtKiDliilloi of Carllst.
Don Carlos chartered a special train, hur
ried to Calais and crossed over to London.
It Is an amusing tact that he never paid
the $1.M0 which that train cost and the
Hum appear year after year in the French
budget a a debt to be recovered.
The head of the Carllst party In Franc
at th present time is the Comt de Maine.
On of the leading spirits was the late
Marquis do Chauvelln. The organisation

affiliated was known as "the head center."
The way It was worked was as follows:

The reports by the veterinary surgeon
concerning the selxure here of unsound
American beet were discussed at a recent
meeting of the Glasgow corporation health
committee. The town clerk submitted a
statement by Mr. Austin, the American
consul In Glasgow, who had prepared an
answer to the complaint, but suggested,
with the view of ending In a satisfactory
manner the controversy on the subject,
further consideration should be deferred
and the deputation representing the cor
poration and consisting of Bailie Russell
(the convener of the committee on health)
and the town clerk deputy (Mr. Lindsay)
ahould, as early a poaalble, proceed to
Chicago and there by themselves, repre
senting the corporation and the public of
the city, Investigate the method of in
spection In operation, a also the sanitary
condition of the stock yards and the pack
ing house In that city, and report thereon
to the corporation the whole expense of
the deputation to be provided by him (the
consul) and that it be left to him to make
all of the necessary arrangement for the
deputation. 'The committee ha already
agreed that In the Interests ot all con
cerned the suggestion and proposal made
by the American consul should be agreed
to, but the corporation has the final say
In. the matter; and what Is puzallng the
corporation is where the American consul
gets the money for the junket. It Is
argued that It could not be paid by the
American government since the American
congress prior to adjournment could not
have foreseen the questions arising in
Glasgow In the present acute form, and
consequently, would not have been able to
arrange for an appropriation for the trip.
If the expense o( the trip is paid for out
of the treasuries of the pocking house;
companies themselves, the members of the
Glasgow corporation are arguing that they
might aa wll remain on this side of tho
Atlantic since no man, even In an Im
portant matter like the matter of public
health, cares to be put In the position of
criticising the gentlemen who are paying
th bill Incidental to th trip.
St. Kllda la Excited.
An extraordinary Incident has occurred
at St. Kllda In connection with the appre
hension of a trawler for fishing within
the three-mile limit. On a recent Sunday
the fishery cruiser Minna, which was pro
ceeding to the Island on special duty,
sighted th trawler fishing within the limit
aa it approached th island. The trawler
continued fishing until the cruiser wa al
most alongside, having, as It afterwards
transpired, mistaken the Minna for one of
the Norwegian whaling vessels. The cap
tain ot the Minna sent on of his men on
board and ordered th trawler, which
proved to be the Knowsle, Into St. Kllda'
bay, where both vessel dropped anchor.
When' the officer of th Minna went
ashore they found the whole population of
the Island assembled on th Jetty with their
mlnlster, th Rev. M. MacLachlan. On
learning that th trawler had been ordered
In for Illegal fishing th Inhabitant became
very much excited to say th least. Th
minister demanded to know by what right
they Interfered with It. It wa trawling
ther with their permission, and It had
their blessing, and they would not permit
Its arrest. H dared th captain to lay one
finger on th trawler, and declared that
the action of th crulinr In arresting It on
Sunday was a much mora heinous thing

SEMI-CENTENNIAL OF MUTINY
Benoy Rebellion Broke Ont la India
Fifty Tear A last
CALCUTTA, May 11. (Specll.)-Conii1d-erable
fear ha been expressed lest the fif
tieth anniversary . of the Indian mutiny
might result In another uprising. It was at
first prtposeu to celebrate the dates In
connectljn with the mutiny, but military
authorities said that It would be difficult
to cnkttlatr. the effects of such celebrations
on the oriental mind, and for this reason
the entire subject has been practically
abandoned, though some of the older sol
dier more nearly allied with the traditions
of the uprising and Its suppression may
celebrate In a small way.
The mutiny began on Sunday afternoon,
Mey 10, 1857 (fifty years ago yesterdny),
with Sepoy of the Bengal army at Meerut,
th largest military station In India, who
shot pome of their officers, released their
comrade from prison, massacred all the
European residents, set fire to public build
ings and the next day roused the neighbor
ing city, Delhi, . which the rebels selxed.
Then through all the valley of the Ganges
i he rebellion spread. In nine or ten places
ther were massacres of women and chil
dren. The annals of war contain no deeds more
thrilllii' than those of Delhi, Lucknow and
Cawr.porc; nor modern warfare any horrors
to surpasa Nana Sahib's massacres at
Cawnpore, while British history can enroll
among Its most Inspiring names the com
manders, Nicholson, Blr Henry Lawrence,
Havelock, Outram and Sir John Campbell.
Upon the native side, for Instance, there
stands out the picturesque figure of the
Ranee of Jhansl, who died fighting at the
head of Its troops.
The rebellion, of which Lord Roberts I
now the most Illustrious survivor, was not
suppressed until April, IWt.

LABORERS' HOMES TOO CHEAP
Engineer Finds He Cannot Bnlld mt
Figures Fixed by Irish
DUBLIN, May 11. (Speclal.KThere waa
an interesting dlecusslon at the last mect
lus of the North Dublin Rural council with
regard to that body's new scheme for. the
erection of cottages for laborer
It appears that the local government
board ha just decided that 8S0 should be
the maximum price of a laborer's cottage,
and Mr. Morris, the engineer to the coun
cil, has reported that this sum would not
be anything like sufficient to meet the cost
of the scheme proposed, having regard to
the quality of the lsnd selected. Its close
proximity to Dublin and the fact that In
each case the extent of the land taken
over was more than one acre. He calcu
lated the price of an acre of land In North
Dublin at $400, and the price of the kind
of cottage proposed at the least at $750.
North Dublin, he argued, wa not really
rural in the sense In which that word might
be applied to most of the country districts
of Ireland, but rather "semi-rural." It wa
decided to ask the local government board
to state if more than $850 could be expended
on the cottages.

CHICAGO, May 11. Excitement such ns
has not been seen on the Board of Trade
since the "black rust" scare of 1W4 existed
today, when wheat, which ha been
steadily advancing for several days, took
another Jump of more than 3 cenM. Frantic
efforts were made by the bears to get
from under the advance, but they were
met by a demand which came from all
parts of the country and swept everything
j before It. The high mark for the July
option wns V1K cents, for September
cents and for December 06H cents. All
options closed very close to the hlRh mark
and with the bullish feeling still unabated.
The cause of the upturn which has taken
place In the last few days Is the wide
spread belief that this year's crop of
winter wheat will show a notable decrease
as compared with that of 1906. Cold
weather In the west nnd northwest, freez

Flood of Orders from Conntry.
The local traders were of the opinion
that wheat has been advancing too rapidly
during the last few days and that a re
action was due. So many orders poured
In from the country-, however, that It was
certain that the expected setback weuld
not come until later In the day. Once
trading was In full swing the orders from
the country came so fsst and In such num
ber that th local crowd was carried be
fore It. Desperate efforts' were made from
time to time by the shorts and some local
trader to stem the advance and once they
forced the price of the July option down
cc. This wa only temporary. The flood
of buying order continued, the prices
started up again, and when the market
closed the price were cloee to the high
mark of the day and the movement seemed
to have lost no fore. Some ot the leading
houses traded In millions of bushel during
the first half hour and the activity In
creased as the market progressed. -
The bulls at the close were claiming
with much enthusiasm that the price of
July wheat will soon go above $1, with
the other options moving up accordingly.
They base their claim on the preaumptlon
that the crop of winter wheat will be about
100,000,000 bushels less than the crop of last
year. The strong markets abroad, the
bulls contend, prove that there will be a
strong demand for export from this coun
try, which It may be difficult to meet.

selling for profits. Sensationally strong
responses were made by foreign markets,

CABINET MEETING IS LONG
Ohio Politic Said to Have Been th

WASHINGTON, May ll.-Today cab
inet meeting, which wa postponed from
yetserday, lasted from 11 to 11:46 o'clock,
an unusually long time. It Is believed
that the political situation as affected by
conditions In Ohio was thoroughly consid
ered. None of the member would say
that It was not. Each one asked about
the meeting said it did not relate par
ticularly to business In hi department.
The coming conference of republican state
leaders at Columbua on May IS Is causing
a great deal of Interest tn administration
clrclea, and from remarks made by a cab
inet officer after the meeting today the
Inference Is that this came up tor a large
share of discussion. The position of the
Taft people, from what a member of the
cabinet said, is believed to be that the
presidency and the senatorshlp In Ohio
should be considered separately. Secretary
Taft declined to talk on tho subject.

such an expression by the committee would
place the governor In an awkward posi

exceptions to Mr. Woodruff's statement and
declared that he believed this to be a very
opportune time for an expression of people

of New York as to Its choice for the next I
presidential nomination. His Introduction '

regulation and control of public service
corporations, a reapportionment In con-

bill and amendments to the primary and
election laws, to the end that Just remedies
may be provided for existing evils."
