doee It alone possess a atable government.
Consequently, the foreign Inveator la not

money In hia own country, and English
men no longer profit by the thrift of the
whole world. In addition there remalne. of

and attractive In the Intereat offered, and
a natural reeult of the outburst of mu

number of potential buyers of consols. Un
doubtedly, too, both the foreign and the
home Investor are made fiervous by the
advance of socialism and the doubt as to
what will be the next eccentricity of the
present British administration.
Result of Trade Boom.
Another cause for the low price Is the
trade boom, which has attracted capital
Inta commercial enterprlaea, and has .made
It advantageoua for the trader to relnveat
hia profits in his own business. This boom,
which has occurred to some extent In
England, has beert phenomenal abroad and
an Immense amount of English capital has
been ' drawn Into American Investments.

Dsatlsg a Solemn Rite.
The Imperial Society of Dance Teach

the Imperial Society of Dance Teachers,
dancing la a aolemn rite to be indulged in

proof tha,t the English take their pit

refining Influence of the Imperial Society
of Dance Teachers. It la good newa that
the Imperial Society of Dance Teachers
haa discovered four new dances. Two of
them have been Imported from Hollanl,
though we are not told If they are danced
to that captivating tune, "By the Side of
the Zuyder Zee." The first Is called the
Apollo, and consists of "gliding, sinuous
movement," apparently a sort of anake
dance, and the other la the "motor" polka,
which demanda great apeed and much henl
and toe. Doubtless before next season we
shall have "motor" polka records, and,
for the safety of the leas agile, speed lim
its for ball rooms. The Ceclllan waits Is
the mystery of the Imperial Society tf
Dance Teachers. No on knows how to
"ceclleT' and the secret Is to be kept from
an anxious world until the Imperial Society
of Dance Teachers Is ready to give It out.

the question whether or not he Is to be j

With regard,' however, to the Important
question anent the abolition or mainten

thoughtful commentators on the subject
rightly remark that opinions concerning
that question ought not to be affected
merely because a sensational crime . has
been committed, and street hawkers are

PILGRIMS SHOWING DEVOTION
St. Patrick's Oratory toil of Many
Ploa. Catholic Wind-Swept
Dl'BLIN. Aug. 24.-(Hpeclal.)-The third
of the modern pilgrimages to St. Pul rick's
Oratory on the top of Croagh Patrick this
year eclipsed Its predecessors In the size
of the attendance. In the devotion shown ,
by the pilgrims and In the splendid weather
which was associated with the celebration.
Three years ago Most Rev. Dr. Healy,
archbishop of Tuam, revived this pilgrim
age, which, as recently discovered docu
ments show, was of Importance In 1432,
when Pope Eugene IV granted an Indul
gence to the vlsitora to the holy mountain,
and fixed the date for the visit on the
last Sunday of July. Very Rev. M. Mc
Donald, the administrator of Westport, has
ably seconded his archbishop In his exer
tions to revive this religious and historlo
devotion. A concrete oratory now aheltera

swept summit of the reek. 2,600 feet high,
and the enormous assemblage fully estab
lished this pilgrimage as an annual na
tional event. Many persons camped on
the mountain all night. Special trains from
Dublin. vAthlone. Achlll, Claremnrrls and
Balllna poured thousands of visitors Into
the town of Westport and on arrival they
Immediately set out for the summit. Peo
ple were present from all parts of Ireland,
from Great Britain, from America and
from the Antipodes, and the calculation
was that their number may have been
anything between 17,000 and 20,000. The
figure seems amazing, almost Incredible,
considering that the Holy Mountain Is
something like 2.500 feet high. This Is a
very considerable ascent, even for a
trained climber, but the young, the middle
aged and the old made It. With tho arch
bishop of Tuam and the devoted adminis
trator of Westport to lead them, the faith
ful did not spare themselves on their
pious pilgrimage. And they were well re
warded when they got to Croagh Patrlek'.i

COST OF POLICING DUBLIN
Amount Practically Double that Paid
In Various Other Places In '
DUBLIN, Aug. 24.-(Speclal.)-A return
has been Issued to the members of the
Dublin corporation by Mr. Edmund W.
Frye, city treasurer, regarding tho com
paratlve cost of tho policing of Dublin and
the various other cities In England and
Wales. The return Is a most Instructive,
not to say startling, one. It would appear
that Dublin practically pays double the
average cost of policing any of the English
cities. In Dublin the police arc a special
department, controlled by a commissioner,
constituted under a special act of
Parllamental, by which provision Is
made for taxing the citizens for their
maintenance at the rate of 8d In the pound
on the the valuation of the city. The re
sult has proved that, though crime Is di
minishing in Dublin, notwithstanding Its
growing population, the cost of policing has
grown with the increase in the valuation
of the city, until th. financial Imposition on
the city ha. becoa. 'm or, it roue. For In
stance, the valuation of the metropolitan
area of Dublin In 1S50 waa 645,000; the val
uation for the year 1905-6 was 1.346.000.
The result of this Increase in, the valuation
of. the city haa been that the cost of the
police In Dublin haa grown up from 71,000
In 1X50 to 1,930 In 1906-6. The strength
of the force practically remalne the same.
The Dublin force In 1850 waa 1,137, and In
1906-C it was l.m. The cost of maintain
ing tho police force was, therefore, In
creased, In fifty-five years, from 71,900
to 160,950. Dublin is generally known as
one of the most peaceable cities In the
three kingdoms. In 1S70 the number of In
dictable offenses was 6,186; In 1905-0 the
number fell to 3,235. The number of sum
mary convictions In 1870 was 47,310, and
this showed a great falling off In 1905-6, the
number being 29,960.

BERLIN, Aug. 24 -German official, dep
recate the Idea that the visit of the French
ambassador, Jules Cambon, to Chancellor
von Buelow at Norderney today was oc
casioned by developments In Morocco ami
that von Buelow's Invitation to him means
that Germany Is disquieted over the Casa
blanca Incidents. The officials here say
the visit Is due to the wish expressed In
July by M. Cambon to see Prince von Buo
low, whose other engagements prevented
an earlier Invitation.
While the fighting at Casablanca has not
caused tho meeting of the two statesmen
at Norderney,' they will talk over the
Moroccan situation. This does not mean,
however, that Germany Is seeking any spe
cial arrangement with France.
This Is Impossible In view of the terms
of the Algeciras convention, which remain
Intact. Germany thus far sets no occasion
to depart from her previous policy of yield
ing to Franco and Spain tho right to es
tablish order In Morocco.
Moors Rlsmlng France.
The Frankfurter Zeltung published a des
patch from Tangier, giving the aubstance
of an Interview which Us correspondent
there hod with Mohammed Sldl El Mokhrl,
of the Moroccan delegation to the Algeclrlas
convention, and who, It has been reported,
may succeed Mohammed El Tores aa repre
aentatlve of the sultan at Tangier. He Is
quoted as saying that the present ferment.
In the Interior of Morocco Is due to France's
Inpatient, hasty course at Casablanca.
This caused fear among the Moors that
their country would be subjugated? Mo
hammed added that If France now acts
with greater deliberation the exlstjng ex
citement may be allayed. Otherwise ho
fears a general uprising.
The movement hitherto has not been antl
chrlstlan but anti-French. France's present
course, Mohammed claims, is contrary to
the terms of the Algeciras convention and,
moreover, Is a blunder. He expressed tho
hope that the other powers would Insist
on France keeping within the terms of tho
Algeciras convention, and stated that the
events at Casablanca had endangered
peace In Morocco, Whereas that country ex
pected peace and civilization from Europe.

Cambon's visit to Chancellor Von Buelow
at Norderney, although arranged prior to
the fighting at Casablanca and having no
official relation to the Moroccan situation.
Is expectedyto have effect In enabling tho
two governments to understand each other.
NeverthelosB, the attitude of the German
newspapers, which are constantly filled
with Insinuation and Innuendo, creates
some misgivings lest the German govern
ment. In the event of the situation de
manding stronger measures, abruptly
changes its front, as It did several times
during the Algeciras convention. Some of
the French papers are firmly convinced
that this Is what will happen, but the
Foreign office gives no encouragement to
this assumption, and It la proceeding on
the theory first, that France and Spain
will not be forced to exceed the mandate
which they received at Algeciras, and sec
ondly, that If the unexpected happens, all
the powers will loyally support whatever
measures are found necessary to Insure the
safety of the lives and property of the
Europeans In Morocco.
The government haa received Information
ihowing that a German merchant at Tan
?ler, who la notorious for his dislike of
Frenchmen, Insph-ed the reports cabled to
the German newspapers, criticising the ac
tion of the French roopa at Casablanca,
especially the statement, classed here a i
