DUBIJS, August 1. (Special.) Blark
Rod, the official of th House of Lords,
of whose existence most people are un
aware, and who recently declared that the
ancient Celtic kilt was not a proper dress
for visitors to the British upper house,
has given a great Impetus to the revival
of the ancient Irish costume In everyday
Mr. Haselton. M. P., for North Galway,
received a visit at the House of Commons
from his friend, Mr. Enrl Oh Eochaldh.
who has worn the Irish dress habitually
for some years. Mr. Haselton showed his
friend over the building and took him to
see ' the House of Lord In session. Aa
they were leaving: an official approached
them and asked Mr. Haselton what
costume his friend was wearing-. The next
day Mr. Haselton received a communica
tion from "Black Rod" the antiquated of
ficial, who looks after the ceremonies of
this mediaeval house, statins; that he did
not consider the Irish dress a fit one for
a visitor to the House of Lords to wear.
Irish Kilt Like Scottish.
The Irish dress, of course. Is the ancient
Celtic kilt. It differs very little from the
Scottish kilt, except that Instead ' of
Uttering with all the colors of the rain
bow and a great many that the rainbow
never knew, It Is uniformly of a saffron
hue. It la topped by a small Jacket of
black material with buttons of old Celtic
design bearing a representation of the
Irish harp. The shawl, or plaid. Is
fastened at the shoulder by the Tara
Brooch. Mr. Haselton replied that although
the Irish dress had been phohlblted by
English penal laws In the sixteenth cen
tury he did not know that these laws were
till effective, and drew attention to the
fact that officers tn Scotch regiments In
their uniforms, which of course Include the
kilt, are frequent visitors to the House of
Lords. "Black Rod" has not replied, but
If an apology Is not forthcoming. Mr.
Haselton Intends to raise the question In
In the meantime there has been quite
a run on the Irish kilt In this country.
Attention has been drawn to the signifi
cance of the national costume by the in
cident and where a few weeks ago one
could only see an occasional wearer of It
In the streets of Dublin or Belfast, one
can now count them by the. score. It Is
likely that, now that "Black Rod" has set
the seal of fashion on the costume, the
revival will go on apace, for there Is really
no more becoming costume for a man of
Half of Deaths la Institution.
Borne very disquieting facts are disclosed
In the annual report on the health of
Dublin, which has Just been published.
According to the health statistics S.M3 of
the 9.1(7 deaths, which took place In the
Irish metropolis last year occurred in
workhouses, hospitals, lunatic asylums,
prisons or other public Institutions. This
Is 41.7 per cent and It compares very un
favorably with the 18 per cent, who die
In such Institutions In the great . English
towns. Nearly one-third of the total popu
lation of Dublin are returned aa laborers,
hawkers, or porters In other words as
belonging to the most poverty-stricken
classes In the community and the death
rate among this class last year was 31.9
per thousand, as compared with 23.1 for the
tntlre city. The dearth of proper housing
accommodation, as disclosed by the report.
Is ainailng. For 69,263 families there are
only 12,061 houses. It must be remembered
tliat all the houses In Dublin were
originally built for only one family. The
effect of over crowding Is shown by tho
fact that one-tenth of all the deaths In
Duhlln last year were caused by phthisis.
Bin- Strike Is Averted.
Lord MacDonnell, who until a few weeks
ago was Sir Antony MacDonnell, has
signalised his retirement from the post of
under secretary by another act of peace
making. He has succeeded In averting a
great strike of the Dublin dockers, which
would have paralysed the trade of the
port. '"Sir Antony." as he will always
bo called In Ireland, has made a great
record aa a peacemaker since he Joined the
Irish administration. His settlement of
the great town tenants fight will be best
remembered and he was the man, who
brought about industrial peace In the
. great LVlfast strike. No one In Ireland,
even among h!a political opponents,
grudges hlru the peerage, which he has
earned not only by tile work In Ireland,
but by a brilliant career as an Indian ad
ulolstrator. Inn rein Newspapers.
Arrangements have been practically com
pleted for the publication In Dublin early
est yr of a Sinn Fein dally newspaper,
f which Mr. Arthur Griffith, one of the
founders of the Sinn Fein movement, will
be the editor-ln-chlef. The Sinn Felners
have Is depend on a few weekly papers
now for their publicity, and they complain
that they are rigidly boycotted In the way
of newa by the nationalist papers, while
the Unionist papers only ridicule them or
distort their doings. The capital for the
paper has been subscribed In email sums
by the supporters of the movement.

Ins His AddreM of
HOT SPRINGS. Va., Aug. L "Speaking
generally, I believe the greatest question
now before the American public Is the Im
provement of the administration of Justice,
civil and criminal, both In the matter of Its
prompt dispatch and the cheapening of
Judge William H. Taft made this state
ment today In discussing the address he Is
to deliver here next Thursday to the Vir
ginia Bar association, arrangements of
which were being made for him by Presi
dent Wyndham R, Meredith of the asso
ciation. "It Is a difficult problem," he added,
'very difficult. Indeed, to make the admin
istration of Justice equal to the poor and
the rich. The difficulty Is In the advantage
the wealthy man has In the employment
of counsel and the fact that he Is able to
stand the expense of litigation, and the poor
man Is not.
Delay Is Great Evil.
There seems to be no absolute remedy.
The only thing you can do Is to render
the administration of Justice as prompt as
possible. The evil Is in the delay more
than anything else. One of the demagog lo
arguments and It is a demagogic- argu
ment, and I have heard It so often in the
legislature, when the proposition Is made
to have only one appeal In cases Involving
less than 'M, la, will you deny to the poor
man the right to obtain the Judgment of
the supreme court of the United Btates?
There was never a more spacious argument.
The wealthy man can afford to wait for
years for that 1500 and can afford to carry
the oase on, but the poor man cannot do It,
That $600, he needs, and needs It at once.
It la better that the case should be decided
against him than that he should lose five
or six years and finally win, after he has
paid out the amount In attorneys' fees."
Mr. Taft intimated that he should dwell
at some length on this question In his ad
dress to the Bar association. The associa
tion will also be addrtssed by President
Meredith and former Senator William
Lindsay of Kentucky and New York. The
meeting will begin Monday and Mr. Taft
expects to attend several of its se salons.
W. Cameron Forbes, vlct, governor of the
Philippine, and General Clarence R. Ed
wards, chief of the Insular bureau, have
been Invited to Hot Springs by Mr. Taft
and will accompany him to White Sulphur
Springs next Friday to attend the Green
Brier county horse show. Mr. Taft will
make no speech on this occasion.
Message of Congratulation.
This was "congratulation" day so far as
Mr. Taft's mall went. John D. Long, former
secretary of the navy, wrote:
Tour speech of acceptance Is perfect and
ought to, as I can not doubt It will. Insure
your election, for which I earnestly pray.
United States Senator Cullom of Illinois
I have lust read your speech of aeoent-
ance and I cannot refrain from writing to
tell you how much I am delighted with
It. It rings true, every word of it. You
did not fall to meet every possible feature
and you nave lett the democrats without
a lesr to stand on.
Your speech Is accented here by the neo-
ple and tho prtss of the middle west as
the utterance of a great man of strong
convirtions and not rearing or hesitating
to express your convictions In every Dar-
tlcular. Your speech of aceetrtanoe- made
your election a certainty. Had It been lows
strong, had you, as a weaker man might
have done, wavered on anv of the srrne.t
Issues before us. the result would have been
disastrous. I knew that your hands are
more than full, but I could not resist the
temptttlon of wrltins: you this note of eon
rratuiatlnn. Not only are you to he con
gratulated. but the party Is to be corv
a-ratulHted rn having you at the head of
the ticket this year.
ferrets rr Wilson Optimistic.
An optimistic view of the republican sit
uation in Iowa and Colorado was communi
cated to Judge Taft by Secretary Wilson,
who Is tn the west, looking after the in
terets of the Department of Agriculture.
Mr. Wilson says the question of tariff pro
tection on farm products will have great
weight tn Colorado.
Here Is a letter the candidate places at
the head of th list of those he appreciates:

"Let the business come, and come with

Mohler, Walter and Holdrege of the Union

Is no doubt about that, for the reports of
the railroad companies show It. The stock

An opinion seems to prevail In some east
ern communities that the railroads have
been , keeping down expenses of mainte
nance so much that the rolling stock Is In
bad condition and not In shape for the In
crease of business, which Is sure to come.
That this Is not the case Is shown by the
statements of the general managers them
selves. "We have our equipment Ini such shape
that we are prepared for the fall rush,"
said A. L. Mohler, vice president and gen
eral manager of the Union Pacific. "We

ALLEN TRIES TO DEFEND SELF
Great Array of Legal Talent at Hear-

TECHNICAL QUESTIONS URGED
Protetnnt Show Demo-Pop Are
Trying- to Prevent Populist
from Voting- the Way
LINCOLN. Aug. l.-(Speclal Telegram.)
Though he had two lawyers and Tom Tib
bies to help him In his efforts to get a
decision from the secretary of state favor
able to his scheme to prevent populists
from voting for their own candidate for
president, Tom Allen, at the conclusion of
the hearing on the protests of Victor Rose
water, today began at once to hustle for
new candidates for electors.
He began before Mr. Junkln said hla de
cision may be reserved until Monday.
This being the last day for filing, Mr.
Allen was Informed he could file eight
populist candidates and then withdraw
them or substitute others according to the
fleclslon of the secretary.
Victor Rosewater filed protests against
the democrats using the people's Independ
ent party label for other democrats to go on
the electoral ticket pledged to vote for Mr.
Bryan, and the protests were heard before
Secretary of State Junkln this afternoon.
Tom Allen, chairman of the democratic
eomlttee, and father of the scheme, waa
represented by Attorneys Arthur Mullen of
O'Neill. A. S. Tibblts of Lincoln and
Thomas Tibbies of Omaha, vice presiden
tial-candidate with Watson four years ago,
at which time he roundly abused Bryan
for supporting Parker. Mr. Rosewater
looked after his own case.
Purpose to Oecelvo Populist.
In hlK protests, Mr. Rosewater charged
the filing of the democratic electors as
populists, was for the purpose of deceiving
the populist voters of and defrauding them
out of their opportunity to vote for their
national candidate; the object being to se
leure votes for the electors pledged to the
democratic candidates. He said also the
Nebraska populists' delegation to the na
tional populist convention after partici
pating for two days In that convention
had withdrawn from It and the conven
tion had nomlnuted a ticket. The national
convention, he said, is entitled to use the
name, people' Independent party.
Much of the proceeding was over tech'
nlcal question, the array of legal talent
Imported by Tom Allen to help him out
losing no opportunity to quibble over
law. They filed affidavits from their
witnesses. E. B Manuel and E. A. Wal
rath, chairman and secretary of the pop
ulist committee, respectively, that the
populist convention had endorsed the
names of the electors filed by Allen and.
though the wltnesnes were present, ob
jected and refuHed to petmlt them tq go
on the stand and tell the Inside workings
of that convention. Secretary of State
Junkln accepted the affidavits because.
he said, he wanted to be liberal In the
matter of evidence, though he thought
the witnesses should be cross-examined
Another point upon which the array of
legal talent attempted to bolster up its
cause was an affidavit that there Is no
national "people's Independent party, the
people's Independent party," the affida
vit said Is confined strictly to Nebraaka.
