fjj In Michael Water, the king of Innlsh-
" muirsy, who died a few days ego. and
1. who has been succeeded on the throne by
lila aon, Michael. Innlshmurray la a storm
bound Island about nine rollea off the Sllgo
coast and the Waters have ruled there at
far back a the memory of man runs. The
lale king succeeded hi mother, who In turn
succeeded her husband, and the ruling
monarch has been a king In fact aa well
a In name. There are neither clergymen
nor police nor maglatratea on the laland
and the king's word la the supVeme law to
the eighty Inhabitants. An Innlshmurray
man has never been known to trouble the
courts on the mainland.
i V' Officially the main Industry of the island
1 riahlnr hut unofficially It la making
, or whisky, which pays no tax to
government. The liquor Is sold to the
publicans on the mainland and Is delivered
when the weather Is suitable that Is on
. dark and stormy nights when the excise-
i y men and their boats are not likely to be
abroad. About ten years ago me govern
ment determined to put a stop to this traf
fic and stationed a police sergeant and four
men on the island. After four months,
however, It was discovered that the In
habitants were in danger of starving to
j s oeain on account 01 ine ruin 01 ineir in-
Vi ' dustry. The police, too, were In danger
f of atarvlng for the Islanders refused to
-firjply them with food, and there are some
times periods of a month or more when
all communication with the mainland is
rut off. At the end of this period the po
lice were wlthdrswn and ' the staple In
dustry, of the laland has flourished ever
since without hindrance.
- Kin Michael ropalar.
Kip Michael was well known to thou
sands of tourlats who visited the Island to
see the remarkable ruins of the ' abbey
founded Jointly by St. Molalae and St. Co
himbkllle, early in the sixth century. The
king's: "castle," peat whitewashed cot
tage, stood near (he only- landing stag on
the -island and the king , was., always at
the. water's -adgtt when- a boat arrived to
welcome the visitors, unless they were po
licemen or excisemen,1 when the welcome
would bo a very cold. fine'. Tfla crown' was'
a very old, but carefully brushed, silk hat,
and lila scepter a formidable blackthorn,
lila real robe was the garment known, In
the west of Irelund as a "wlleycoat," which
Is a cross between a flannel Jacket and a
jersey. ' '
King Michael's funeral was attended by
every one of his subjects and by .hundreds
of people from the mainland. Tit, was
buried In the roval plot Inside the walls
of the rulr.ed abbey.

Another evidence of the Change In public
sentiment even In the- unionist ' party on
the subject Of home rule Is furnished by
an Interview with" Sir George Doughty, a
leading unlcr.lst . member of parliament,
which has Just been, made, public. ' '81r
George, while lepcatlng the pious formula
abiut complete separation of Ireland froth
Kng1and being Impossible, . says .-that a
flarge number of influential men in the
unionist party believe that IrHar.d should
receive a measure of seW-government iuiu
us full as that enjoyed by, nny of the
British colonies. He also declares that he
la confident that tlrfs will soon -become the
official policy of the party. It may ha
... pointed out that this Is all that the Irlih
-A (nationalists are . asking . for. A: colonial
parliament mears the next thing to entire

Got After, Clanrlcarde.
, The, Irish land commission has at last
taken steps to deal with the scsndnl of
Lord Clanrlcarde, who. enjoys the dlstlnc
tlon of being the only land owner ever
publicly denounced in Parliament ' by n
British prime .minister for . his. treatment
of his tenants. The statutory notice for
the compulsory purchase f the Clanrl
earde estates by the land commission has
been published and within another year
It is expected every tenant who has been
evicted from the .Clanrlcarde estates will
bu back orj his own land. Lord Clanrl
carde, of course, is doing all he -ran to
oppoae the purchase but apparently all
lie can dJ Is abuse the land comml.sk ners.
He has not seen the estates for twenty
five years and he lives the life of a recluse
in England, devoting his time u. art nud
curio collecting. He Is shur.ued by his
fellow peers on the rare occasions i.t lila
appearance In the House of Inrds.
EsTect of luintlaratloa.
An announcement which has just been
made in the English Parliament by the
prime minister throws a sinister light on
the manner In which Ireland Is being
robbed by emigration of the young and

NEW YORK,' Nov. 7. A flood of buying
orders which had poured In on brokers dur
ing the night sent prices soaring on the
Stock exchange today and brought scenes
of activity on the floor, the like of which
had not been witnessed in many months.
So strong wss the bullish sentiment that
In some Instances prices jumped upward
points at a time on single sales. The readi
ness with which purchases were made at
tli advanced figures Indicated that many
buying orders had been placed practically
without limitation In prlc. New York
Central rose S points on a few purchases
and United States Steel by short spurts
forced Itself up to 6o4, the highest price
ever touched by that stock. Many other
prominent stocks rose 1 and 2 points over
last night's closing. There was no definite
single piece of news to account for the ex
treme activity, but speculation apparently
was stimulated by reports from all sections
of the .country of. receipts of Urge orders
by msnufscturers, of rapid expansion In
wholesale and retail lines and that large
numbers of .workers are belna; re-employed.
The big advance' In New York Central
was attributed in part to a rumor current
In the stroet to the effect that E. H
Harriman soon Is to become a factor In
the control of that system. Neither con
firmation nor denial of this report was to
be had today.
The animated trading continued until
the close, though considerable ' selling to
realize profits developed In the closing
hour. As a result, the gains In some of
the prominent stocks were wiped out. but
the substantial . advances in . some shares
remained to the end. Prices wero work
Ing upward again when the closing gong
put an end to the trading for the week
' Edward H. Harriman was informed by
those at his home at Arden. Orange

the strength of .that rumer. He declined

Mr. Cornell, his private secretary, went to
waken him his death was discovered. An
examination of the body by the house phy
sician disclosed the fact that Mr. Cornish
had been Jead for aome hours. While a
superficial examination Indicated that death
had been due to heart disease, the doctor
said there was a possibility that It had been
caused by apoplexy. The coroner's inquest
was set for tills afternoon, after which the
body will be sent to Orange, N. .J., where
the decedent resided. His office was at

The verdict of the coroner's Jury was
that death had been due to heart dlaease.

A circular will be Issued in a few days
by the Commercial club setting forth In
detail Information regarding the new uni
form bill of lading w'olch has been recom
mended to all ratlrouds by the Interstate
Commerce commission. There Is, of course,
to railroad men and shippers a great
amount of Interest In the matter, and
among the shippers at least some uncer

It my be ststed that at a meeting of
western railroad traffic agents Just held In
Chicago It was ordered that shippers may
use the old forms until the first of De
cember, provided that these are mad sub
ject to the provisions of the new bill of
lading through the medium of a rubber

among tpther things the assumption of a
common carrier's risk by tha shipper, and
If he refuses to ship on these terms, an In
crease of W per cent In tariff is ordered.
The circular which Commisslorr Oulld

be thoroughly read by the many business

NEW YORK, Nov. 7. The government's
attempt t0"brlng about a dissolution oni the
American Tobacco company, the giant cor
poration which practically contrrls the to
bacco trade of the world outside of Orent
Britain, has made substantial progress.
After long consideration of the great vol
ume of testimony taken during the many
months since the suit was Instituted, four
Judges in the United States circuit court
today handed down decisions holding that
the company Is operated In violation of the
Sherman antl-tnist law and .In restraint of
trade. The court found, however, that the
government's request for the appointment
of a receiver was Impracticable and wholly
unneoessarv and at the same tlmo the four
judges agree that the application for an
Injunction against the various subslduary
companies should be suspended until after
a decision or an appeal fronj the present
judgment. The complaint against the Im
perial Tobacco company and the nritlsh
American company was dismissed.
In addition to the American Tobacco
company, the defendants named In the gov
ernment's suit Included the Imperial To
bacco company, the British-American To
bacco company, the . United Cigar Stores
companies and fifty-nine other small cor
Thegov ernment's complaint against the
tobacco company Included the names of a
large number of susldlary and allied com
panles, but not all of these are Incuded In
the decision handed down by the Judges of
the United States circuit court today.
The suit has been In progress for many
years and great volumes of testimony were
taken by the government and on behalf
of the defendant companies. In the course
of these examinations It developed that the
American Tobacco company and Its sub
sidiaries practically controlled the tobacco
trade of the world. The American To

NEW ORLEANS. La., Nov. ;.-A report
reached here today from Colon, Panama
that a subterranean lako. found un-; N
site of one of the proposed big locks of
the Panama canal at Oatun, will result
In a delay of several years tn completing
the canal and a much' larger, outlay, of
money than at first was anticipated.
According to this report, the discovery
of the lake has been kept a secret. Engi
neers who are said to know cf the discov
ery declined to discuss the. matter during
the absence of Colonel Goethals, who is in
the United States.
This discovery has brought about
change In the plana, according to the re
ports reaching here, by which two of
three locks will be removed from Gatun
to Bohlo, and for the construction of two
dams and a double lift in place of one
dam and three lifts.
All this work will add some to the
length of time for constructing the
waterway and will add a cost which has
qot been figured out. .
Cnder the reported change (n plans' th
Gatun dam will lift thirty-five leet of
water only and th dam at H&ito will
give an additional fifty-flv feet of water.

of the murder of Miss Adda Bailey of
Denver, which occurred here September 12,

crime is now being mado by Sheriff
Larclns, who Is a negro, was arrested
yesterday for invading the home of C. R.
Hoffman, holding up Hoffman and his
wife and daughter and robbing them of a

Suspicion that Larclns might be tho mur
derer of Miss Bailey was first aroused

her assailant given by Miss Bailey while
she wss dying. The appearance of Lar
clns and the description of the murderer
are almost identical, even to the height
S feet 3 inches and the phenomenal
breadth of shoulders. But a more con
vincing piece of circumstantial evidence la
a pear-shaped patch on the heel of one
of th shoes worn by Larclns when he waa
arrested. The murderer of Miss Bailey
left distinct tracks when he fled from the
seen of the crime and In these tracks ap
peared th Impression of a pear-shaped
patch Identical with that on Larclns' shoe.
