UNITE AGAINST WHITE SLAVERY Conference In London Brings About World's Inlon to Protect Women and tilrls In All Countries. BY TALI, LAMBETH. IONDON, April 23.-(Speclal Dispatch to The Bee,) One of the most remarkable em igration movements of modern times from Great Britain Is now In progress. It la estimated that not less than 30,000 sturdy English and Scotch of the farming and skilled artisan classes will have started for Canada and the United States during the month of April and other thousands re to follow. Most of these emigrants are bound for western Canada, though some will seek homes In the northwestern Amer ican states. The quality of this new tide of emigra tion la even more remarkable than Its quantity. They are not "assisted emi grants." For Instance, among the 1.600 passengers on the Empress of Britain, which sailed recently from Liverpool to Canada, 200 of them formed a special "land party," which Is going out under the auspices of the Canadian Paclfio rail way officials to settle In the Irrigation district of Calgary, In the province of Al berta. Included in this party, which rep resents a combined capital" of $250,000, waa the first batch of settlers going out under Sir Thomas Shaughnessy's scheme for pro viding ready-made farms for British Immi grants. Nineteen families were destined for these homewteads, and their members were drawn from various professions. They included an engineer, a former Inn keeper, retired civil servant, army pen sioner, builder, coachman, dairy farmer and veterinary surgeon. What They Are Bringing. On of the party, breeder of prise poultry, had paid $76 freight on aome chick ens which ha waa taking out to his ready- made farm. Another member was form erly a horse trainer' at Newmarket, but, tiring of racing, desired a quiet home for his children. "The whole party appeared very optimistic as to the future! On had married to qualify for a farm, It being stipulated under the scheme that occupants should be married men. The youngest of the party waa 2S and the oldest 60. Each family waa possessed of capital ranging from $1,000 to $3,500. "I have just settled with a Lincolnshire man who has a capital of $K,000," said Mr. Bethune Gray of the Canadian Pacific rail way land department the other day. "lie will bo one of our next party, and I am now In correspondence wtth a man who has a capital of $100,000, who will, I hope, take the whole of It to Canada." Of course, all these emigrants are not so well fixed financially as these, but with few exceptions they are capable, intelli gent, hard-working people, who win ma'e Ideal citizens. W. C. T. ir.

Wanta Ills Skeleton Bark. 1 A remarkable case Is reported from Stockholm, In Sweden, where a wealthy resident has been endeavoring to recover the ownership of his skeleton. Twenty years ago Albert Vystrom signed a con tract with .the Royal Swedish Institute of Anatomy making over his body, after his death to the Institution in return for a sum of money. Since then he has come Into possession of a large fortune' and he Is anxious to caoceLhls contract1 with the institute. The matter was brought before the law courts, but not only was the case decided against him, but he was even ordered to pay damages to the in stitute for having extiactcd two teeth without authorization, lns contradiction to his contract. Women la Norway. Some interesting facts about women's suffrage in Norway have been prepared by Mr. J. Castberg, ex-minister of justice In the Norwegian liberal cabinet. . Mr. ('u.st berg says In Norway women got the municipal franchise In 1901 and the parlia mentary franchise In 1907. ken have uni versal suffrage, but tho female suffrage was at present confined to those women who, themselves or through their hus bands, paid taxes on a yearly income of at least IM. This limitation excluded about 200.000 adult women out of 5,000,000. With the female franchise was combined eligi bility for parliament. The first time that women exercised the franchise waa at the general election last autumn. Seventy per cent of tho enfranchised women ' voted. Women were divided on the same political lines as men. Of course, there were excep tions, but as a rule the Influence of, the mm u y un me result or tne election had oeen aoubieo. Three women stood for par liament, but they were all defeated by their political opponents. Only one woman got elected as a member's deputy that was, she would take the. place of a mem ber who died or was absent through ill ness or any other cause. On the whole, It might be said that the result of the first exercise of the parliamentary fran chise by women In Norway was to awaken the public spirit of women.

HARD WORDS ONLY PASS SO FAR Eplstatnry Exchange of Kplthets and Charges F.arltes Admiring; Won der of Public, but Honors Hold About Even. BY PAUL V1LL1ER3. PARIS, April 23.-(Spcciai Dispatch to The Bee.) The steady accumulation of gold by the Bank of France Is arousing Inter est in diplomatic circles, and the question Is being asked If Fiance is preparing for a general European war. While there Is at t lie present moment no indication of war In the near future which can possibly In volve -France, there are danger spots both In the near and far cast which may de velop so that war will come quickly. Austria and Russia appear to have come to an agreement In regard to the Balkans and have put a curb on the ambitions of Ferdinand of Bulgaria, while the tension between Japan and the United States has been lightened, but in high diplomatic clv cles It Is recognized that there are ele ments of dangr at both these points. That this Is the secret of the accumula tion of gold by the Bank of France Is re garded as not at all unlikely. There cer tainly seernB to be no economic reason for It. Under the law the Bank of France can not issue more than $1,100,000,000 of notes At the beginning of the year the actual Issue of notes was approximately $1,000, WAOOO, against which the bank had In Its vaults coin to the value of JSOO.OOO.OOO. Of this $142,000,000 was In gold, the greatest ac cumulation of gold by far ever held by any bank In the world. And still , the accumulation of gold goes on. It Is not innatural therefore for diplo mats to ask if France Is quietly preparing for trouble, . . ; . Row In the Comedle. Whlhtti. o-rMm t wntM wr in thn nrrta- &ect in the near future or not, there is no doubt that , rvery Bitter and virulent cWtl war is in progress in France's great na tional theatrical enterprise, the Comedle Francals. M. Claretie, administrator of theater, and M. Le Bargy, a full socletalre and member of the committee, are leaders of the two factions, and the language ex changed makes the recent complimentary passage-at-words. to coin a phrase, be tween Mr. Oscar Hammersteln and Miss Mary Garden, appear like a conversation at a 5 o'clock tea 'at a young woman's seminary. Old Francals subscribers throw up their hands. The end of the world seems at hand when, In the one theater in the world where everybody had always hitherto been polite, where there is never any fuss or bustle In the carpeted passages and green rocms like salons, and where the call boy is an elderly, noiseless servant like an old family retainer, the director and leading actors call each other names. What has M. Claretle's management con sisted of? asked M. Le Bargy; and he re plies: "Five and twenty years 'of Incom petence." What has M. Le Bargy's career been? "Tweniy-flve years of treachery," retorts M. Claretie, in so many words. It Is to be hoped that the row will not be wiped out in blood on the dueling ground. M. Claretie, armed with his acade mician's sword, and M. Claretie, armed with his rapier of Saverny in "Marlon De lorme." Exchange of Verbal Shot. Having sent in his resignation, which, tc become final, must, by the famous de cree of Moscow, be renewed six months hence, M. Le Bargy has explained why he old so. Having accepted .the resignation, M. Claretie has also explained why he did so. But neither explanation has been par liamentary. M. Claretie says in Bubstance: "M le Bargy's career has been twenty five years of treachery. Gustave Larrou msnt said one day: 'You have at the Francals a man who betrays you, a ser pent which beslavers the maison and you with its venom. I have thus known M. le Bargy of old.' " M. Claretie goes on to say that M. le Barby never acta, but draws hts salary, delays plays by refusing to rehearse, and is always acting outside the Comedle. These be fierce words, but M. le Bargy Is quite capable of hitting back. "M. Claretie," he declares, "has, since the reading committee of actors was abolished, accepted nothing but bad plays at their expense. M. Claretie persistently stultifies and paralyses the managing committee of actors, which votes resolutions year after year that are never carried out." The quarrel, which they themselves de scribe as a quarter of a century of In competence versus a quarter of a cen tury's treachery, does not seem a very good advertisement for the Comedle. Nor hrve matters been improved by M. Mounct Sully, the oldest member of the company, who enters the list and declares: "Alas! All M. le Bargy says Is only too true." Another Opt ana scandal. I have before called attention to the alarming growth of the opium habit among French naval officers. Now comes another case from Brest. Dr. Bechon -wss called to the rooms of a woman named Suxanne Hol land, aged 22, who was suffering terrible pains. She was barely able to speak, but managed to convey to tha doctor that she had passed a portion of the previous night In company with a friend and some naval officers, and that she had swallbwed six opium pills. Dr. Bechon ordered the woman to be taken to the hospital, where she died an hour later In fearful agony. The prefect has Instructed the police to make Inquiries wtth a view to ascertaining the names of the officers who had spent tht evening with the woman Rolland. Coming after so many other opium scandals, which are still the subject of Judicial Inquiry, this new affair has caused a great sensation. AV11EX THE COITRXAL VISITS COPENHAGEN'.

BELGRADE PAPERS BELCH FIRE Austrian Politicians Much Interested In the Accounts of the Recep tion Given the Visitor by ' the Ccar. BY KMIL ANDRASSY. ' VIENNA, April 23. (Special Dispatch to The Bee) Despite the denial from St. Petersburg that King Peter of Bervia was received In Russia with decided coldness, it Is persistently reputed here that such was the fact and that the Servian mon arch feels the slights said to have been put upon him, keenly. One Belgrade pa per, in fact, says the king intends to ab dicate in favor of the crown prince. It Is felt here that King Peter's position has been rendered Impossible by the czar. The crown prince of Servla Is shortly going to St. Petersburg at the Invitation of the czar, and It is said that the czar suggested to King Peter that he should resign. Just how much truth there Is in all these stories it is Impossible to say. It is not impossible that they have been spread by Austrian diplomacy, which is greatly wor ried by the progress made by Russia in solidifying the Balkan Slavo under Rus sian leadership. Movement of Emperor, The Emperor Francis Joseph, who has been residing during the last six months at the castle of Schonbrunn, is expected to spend part of May at Budapest, and about the middle of June he is going to Ischl for a stay of three months. It is expected at Vienna that King Edward of England will pay a private visit to the Emperor Francis Joseph at Ischl during the second week in August. Woman of Courage. The rather feeble health of the ex-queen of Naples, the Emperor Francis Joseph's sister-in-law, recalls the fact .that she Is the only woman who has received the Russian cross of St. George, which is only conferred for acts of conspicuous bravery under fire. The ex-queen received It in recognition of the courage she displayed In connection with the magnificent defense of Gaota against the armies of Garabaldl and King Victor Emmanuel. One day during the siege a bomb fell Into the room where King Francis and Queen Sophia were dining. King Francis retreated to the cellar, trembling with fright. Queen Sophia rose from the table and walked to a looking glass that hung on the wall, and, noticing that her hair was whitened by the plaster ' dust raised by the bursting bomb, said quite calmly: "What a pity It Is that powder Is no longer fashionable. Don't I look quite an eighteenth century queen with my whitened hair? I must keep it so while the garrison Is being re viewed." Queen Sophia conducted the entire de fense of Gaota, which was so magnificent that the garrison was permitted to march out with all the honors of war. Every day she visited the ramparts and encouraged officers and .men. She sighted the guns, and her example shamed those who were disponed to surrender into an appearance of courage. Kerens la Doing Well. I'nlted States Ambassador Kerens Is rap idly making his position secure in Vienna. The Missouri statesman Is lacking lu some of the fine points of development upon which European diplomats place so much stress, but his hearty good humor and com mon sense by far overbalance these omis sions and his popularity Is growing. The fact that he is a devout Catholic Is a great help to him. New Diamond Field Found. CAPE TOWN. April 23. (Special Dlipatch to The Bee.)

" - DUBLIN, April . (Special Dispatch to The Bee.) William O'Brien lias practically Joined hands with the unionists In the es tablishment 'of .the "All-for-lreland league," which has been formed In Cork. At the meeting which formally launched the new organization there were on the platform Iord Dunraven and Mr. O'Brien, Lord Castletown and Mr. T. M. Healy, Colonel Hutchison Poe and Mr. Maurice Healy, many prominent unionists and most of Mr. O'Brien's independent parliamentary asso ciates. The avowed object of the "All-for-lreland league" Is to extend throughout Ire land a new political spirit and to bring together men of all parties and, religions, whose chief grounds of difference have been removed by' land purchase Into com mon endeavor for Ireland's good. Tho nationalists are Inclined to greet the "league" with Joy. They claim It unmasks the O'Brlenlsts and places them where they belong, with the unionists nd against home rule. The result of this, the followers of Mr. Redmond claim will be to so weaken Mr. O'Brien's following that in the next Par liament he will not have half the following he now has. It Is understood that the new organiza tion will, however, have candidates for practically all the seats now held by na tionalists, whether there lu any hope of carrying them or not. The nationalists rec ognize the Importance of meeting this con dition and are making strenuous efforts to fill the party war chest. Already nearly ti 15,000 has been sub scribed and the letters that accompany the subscriptions so far breathe an enthusiasm that promises great results. The doubling of many of the bishops' usual annual sub scriptions to the fund is a most encourag ing feature, in sentiment and substance. Young Dike Is Happy. Society is beginning to disturb Itself over the marriage of the duke of Letnster, quite indifferent to the fact that the young man himself continues perfectly happy at Kll kea castle, where, with his two brothers, his three unmarried aunts, and his uncle and ex-guardlan, Lord Walter FltzGerald, he keeps up the traditional hospitality of the Geraldines. His dukedom only dates from 1706, but his earldom is the oldest lu Ireland, and tho long roll of ancestry shows names recalling the most stirring romances and the most devoted patriotism that any race can boast. There is "Gerald Mor" the Great Gerald; and "Gerald Oag" the young Gerald. There Is the tenth earl, "Silken Thomas," and the eleventh, who is known as the "Wizard Earl;" there Is the twelfth, "Henry of the Battleaxes," and the six teenth, the "Fairy Earl." And in quite modern times, there Is Lord Edward Fltz Gerald "Rebel" or "Patriot," as the case may be, who, wtth his wife, Pamela, lived out a romance as fu.l of herolc'devotlon and hopeless pathos as any one among them all. At Carton, the chief seat of the Fltz Geralds, hangs a portrait of one other scion of the race as famous for her beauty and goodness as the men of her house were for their prowess and their truth. This Is Lady Elizabeth, "the fair Gerald Ine" of Surrey's poems. Colored Afrlcaus Not to Participate. POUT ELIZABETH, April JM. (Special Dispute!) to The Bee.)

DISRAELI ONLY OTHER INSTANCE Not Orthodox In His Religion, bnt Does ' Mot Deny Ills Hebraism nd ' Has Contempt for Those Who Do, i By CLEMENT J. BARRETT. ROME, April 23. (Special Dispatch to The Bee.) To Italy belongs the credit of being the first continental power of the first class to appoint a Jew as Its prime minister. Outside of Benjamin D. Israeli I Lord Beaconsfield). prime minister of England-; Signer Lulgl Luzzattl, the new Kalian premier, Is the first Hebrew into whose hands has been placed the guidance of a great nation. Curiously enough, the ex-premier. Baron Sonlno, was also a Jew emigrant from Irfghorn; but his mother was an English Protestant, and he himself wsa not brought up in the Jewish faith. About the origin of Slgnor Luzzattl, there is no possible dougbt. He comes of a famous family that has given Jewish rabbis, physicians, poets and scholars to Italy for generations, and he has never been other than proud of his membership of the Jewish race. Last year, when described by a Social ist piper as "the Jew Lulgl Luzzattl," he wroto to the Journal declaring that, al though he had freed himself from dog matic religion, he Invariably turned back to the Jews when he was taunted with being one of them, in contradistinction to thoso Jews who sneaked away like cowards whenever they were described as Jews. Signor Luzzattl's career has been consist ently brilliant. He flrBt entered Parliament forty years ago, and in 1891 received his first cabinet appointment, as minister of the treasury. He has also won high aca demic distinction in the fields of political economy and law. It is significant testi mony to the position of the Jews in Italy that, while Slgnor Luzzattl is premier, the mayor of Rome, Slgnor Ernesto Nathan, is a member of the Jewish faith. American Consul Wood at Venice, is de termined to put a stop to the attempted fleecing of his fellow countrymen by a curtain class of merchants after the style attempted on a young American couple recently. The wife bought a necklace for 80 francs, which she asserts, she paid for with three English sovf reigns and a 5-franc piece. Other goods were shown to her and pressed upon her, which she, however, dill not wish to purchase. Later the salesman called at the hold and asked her if she would not take the goods that had been shown her. Again she refused. Then he said that Bhe had not paid fuV the necklace. The toman was amazed, and told him she had made pay ment on purchase. Tho salesman found out that she and her "husband were leaving Venice that even ing. What was the astonishment of the Americans to find that the salesman, with same other young men, were at the sta tion, where again payment for the necklace was demanded and angry words used. A crowd gathered and finally a policeman came up and arrested the Americans. Meantime Mr. Wood, the American con sul, was communicated with, and appeared In court In the morning, when the Ameri cans were at once set free, the consul un dertaking to answer for them. The magis trate was given the necklace In the mean time, so that he might probe the affair to the bottom. The moral to be drawn from it Is this, that Americans would do well to demand a wrlttni receipt In every case when they pay for goods. Boxer Dice After Boat. BOSTON, April 23.

GIRL BENT ON BEING LAWYER Wins I. unit Applause as Dancer on Stage In Warsaw, but Taltrs Money to Defray lost of .Schooling. BY GIIORGU ERASER. ST. PETERSBURG, April 23. (Special Dispatch to The Bee.)-Thore will be no drawing back by Russia In the matter of dealing with Finlund. That can be put. down as certain. The Russian view is that with tho strong antl rtusslsn feeling existent In Finland that country, under the old conditions, was a menace to the peace and safety of the empire which could not be tolerated. I understand a monster petition is being1 prepared In Finland to be presented to tha czar, proving him to reconsider his de cision. It Is virtually certain, however, that Finnish opposition to tho projected legislation will be strictly confined within constitutional bounds, taking the form of passive resistance. Many Finns now acknowledge that the declarations made by their friends among Jurists abroad against Russia's legal claim to introduce the legislative measure com plained of damaged Instead of helping tha cause. There Is the highest authority for atat Ing that neither the petition nor resistance, whether passive or active, wUI have any effect. Case Against the Finns. The official Russian position was re cently outlined by the Novue Vremya. in this language: . . "Finland enters into the composition of the Russian empire as an integral portion thereof, consequently Russo-FlnnlBh rela tions do not at any point touch the do main of International law. Besides, It Is a question not of Finland's com plaints, but of Russia's legitimate claims. Finnish laws deny to common subjects oj the empire the rlstTts-conrerred upon Finng In other parts of the empire. "Again, the Finns do not wish to par tlcipate in the common imperial expenditure- for national defense. They refuse to protect the empire with the blood of their sons, as Russia defended them during the Crimean war. The Finns, too,, have de liberately employed a gauge on the'rail ivays which prevents Russian rolling stock from entering the principality." Hound to Be a Lawyer. Appearances are deceptive in the case of Marie Rutkovsky. The fashionable audi ence that crowded the great theater lu tho Pollsli capital the other night gave her an ovation as she appeared as tho prima -ballerina In "The I.ake of Swans," a ballet for which Tchaikovsky wrote the exquisite music. They saw she was young, very pretty snd mistress of her difficult art. She per formed the exacting and complicated dances of the princess as though nothing In the world was easier.

Indeed, record the fact that she went round thirty-nine times without stopping. Aa aha moved across a rosy lake in a fairy ship with the beautiful prince and Tsohalkov sky's enchanting music floating through the theater, nobody would have Imagined that the ballerina was a girl witU a most serious view of life. But the fact is her object in giving performances in Warsaw waa to make enough money to continue her legal studies at the University of St. Petersburg. She has set her heart on becoming a barrister.
