King George is making good. That Is the general verdict and the new - king la becoming very popular with the general masses of the English people. King George Is eve more of a democrat than was King Edward. He always mixed with the common people and the laboring classes, and for many years has taken an exceedingly active part in the work of bet tering the conditions of the working classes of Great Britain.. He has Just decided to become patron and president of not only all of the charities with which King Ed ward was associated, but of , numerous othr charities in which he was personally interested before his coming to the throne. King George has Just received a list of the charities King Edward patronised, and although several which the easy-going King Edward loaned his name to may be dropped from the list as questionable, King George will be president of more charitable societies than any other man living. -Memorial to Edward VII. It -lias also been practically decided by King George; that the form the great na tional memorial England will erect to King Edward will be the raising of a great fund of 6,000,000 to place the hospitals In the principal cities of Great Britain on a satis factory basis, and It Is understood that King George will soon make an announce ment along these lines. . King George is not a believer in erecting ' i monuments of atone and. bronse. He be lieves Iho greatest memorials that can be erected to uiijr ruler is the founding of hoe plUUs. charities and Institutions that will 'work toe ha welfare of the masses of the pooplo. . ...'.

He 'is personally taking great interest in the transporting of thousands of needy Eng lishmen to English colonies, especially Can ada, aitd he receives dally reports as to the progress made. King George has made good already, but .

Our new ruler Is very fond of his family life. He has all sailor's liking for the domestic hearth and the Court Windsor will not be unlike that of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert- very homelike and very happy, v Honor Abraham Lincoln.

Feoeo Societies. Peace societies are cropping up allN over Kngland. One of the most recent was a movement which had for its object a peace appeal at a big banquet at the Hotel Cecil and the appeal was duly launched. Sir Wilfred Lawson was the only contrib utor to come forward and he promised S&.O0O on the condition that Andrew Carmtie consented to be president of the movement and that I-O.000 was raised within a year.

HOME COMING IS A BIG SUCCES3 Serious Attention ia Given to the Scarcity of Beef la Ireland Farmer Are Ready to Fight. By THOMAS EMMETT. DUBLIN, July 9. (Special Dispatch to The Bee.) The American invasion Is now at Its height and there have never before been ao many Americans In Ireland. Every ship which lands at Queenstown drops 300 or 400 hundred home coming Irish Amer- leans. Sometime the number Is greater than this, rarely less. One steamer had nearly 700 passengers for Queenstown. And Ireland Is taking car of them, too, from one end of the country to the other I hear tales of the' good times being pre pared for the homeoomers. So successful has been the movement this year, that I understand it la to be made a permanent institution and it Is probable next year the number of tourists will be even greater than it has been this year, ' Point In License Law. At the Ciaremorrls quarter sessions re cently, an Interesting ejectment was heard at the suit of Mr. MarUn Griffith against Mr. Ferrall McDonnell, Dunmore, In respect of licensed premises in the town of Ciare morrls in the occupation of Mr. James Henehan. The ejectment was based on a lease- which the court held expired on the death of the king. There are quite a num ber of business houses In Ciaremorrls, the leases of which expired on the death of the king. ' Beef In Ireland. At a meeting of the South of Ireland Cattle Trade association, Mr. Dillon, the chairman, referred to the scarcity of beef, and said the matter had now become so serious that the meat traders of England were agitating for the opening of Irish ports to Canadian and Argentine store cattle. - This was a desperate experiment to advocate, especially now, when it was announced that a serious outbreak of foot and mouth disease had occurred In no fewer than five centers in the Argentine Republic. If this outbreak had never occurred the removal of the embargo would not satisfy the cry for cheap meat, because there were no restrictions on the Importation of dead meat or on fat cattle, to be slaughtered . on arrlva! from the United States or Canada. - . Farmers Will Fight. English, Scottish and Irish farmers had to tight, against this unfair competition, with the result that, finding the rattling of beef .unremunertlve, they also, .-In .a great measure, gave up fattening cattle, and contented themselves with supplying. In the summer and autumn, what, was known as "grass beef.". The gravity of the situation could not be overestimated, and a national duty devolved upon their agriculturists to rise to the occasion, recognising that . an Imme diate return to tillage to a larger extent than ever prevailed before would alone avert a meat famine. The , government should aid financially, and In a very sub stantial manner, our agriculturists to tide over this crisis. Profits to Public The profits of the Belfast corporation electric cltxdepartment last year amounted to S5&.000, 125.000 of which was handed over in relief rates. "Parliamentary Practice." At a meeting of the Londonderry district council a member proposed that two pairs of 4-ounce gloves should be bought so that members might settle their differences promptly and without undue argument Boycotts Still Rate. Six hundred and twelve persons were be ing wholly or partly boycotted In Ireland (save an official return) at the beginning of the present month. FREE-FOR-ALL FIGHT AT LISBON BOXING MATCH Seconds of the Principals Mix in Dto- reunrd of All Rales of the Rlns; and a Riot Ensues. LISBON, July S. (Special Dispatch to The Bee.) A riot of the most violent character occurred at a boxing match here between a professional boxer named Aaevedo, who has recently returned from the United States, and a colored man named Costa, who Is of huge proportions. The building In which the contest took place was crowded to the utmost, there being about 1000 spectators present. The pugilists used tour-ounce gloves. In the second round Costa, with a tremendous swing, caught Aievedo on the Jaw, sending him Instantly to the ground. When Axevedo was regain Ing his feet the colored boxer, it Is alleged resumed the contest and punished his ad versary while he was on the ground Asevedo's seconds Interfered, endeavoring to pull Costa away. The seconds of the colored fighter thereupon attacked the op posing party, and the spectators, amid gen eral uproar, took sides. The affair quickly degenerated Into a free fight. Blows were lustily exchanged on both sides, and th Wildest confusion prevailed. The crow grew still more turbulent, and the police who were present were utterly unable to quell the riot. Reinforcements of gend ermery were summoned, and finally order was restored. It was then found that over thirty . persona had received more or le serious Injuries. STRANGE IDEAS IN A WILL Dome Alblna Pelxoto Makes Temporal Provision for Her Retlnuo of Servants. LUCERNE. July . (Special Dispatch to The Bee.) There are strange provisions In the will of her excellency Dona Alblna pelxoto de Sou ia Frelre of the House of Corregal, who di i a spinster In September last The heir Is to see that several ser vants and dependants, when they leave tbe house, are supplied with: "Forty measures of twenty litres, say, thirty-two of malse, six of rye and two of beans, a large box, two cartloads of wood. one being of pine twigs for chips and the other of lopped wood, and also bacon and tat sufficient to last until the tllllnga and half a pipe of wine with the cask." To each of the tenants of .her farms ahe left two carloads of corn. Some of the bequests to members of her family are charged with the' gift to old servants and others "annually for the Feast of the Nativity, one cartload of plnewood chips and branches." ELECTION FRAUD IS MADE PUBLIC Startling Discovery of Irregular Bal loting; in the French Colonies. LATEST DEVICES IN TRICKERY Martinique and Guadeloupe Turn Tricks of Bare Boldness, i NO CAMPAIGN FREE FROM FTRE This Tear is, by Comparison, More Than Usually Mild. "ONLY A FEW MEN ARE KILLED" Paris Statistics Make Bad Skonlsg as to Number of Street Acci dent M. I.cplne May Re align Police Office. BY PAUL VILLIERS. PARIS, July a-(Speclal Dispatch to The Bee.) In the gentle arts of ballot box stuffing. Intimidation of voters and stealing of elections generally the French colonies Aot only have nothing to learn of the most expert American exponents of the shady side of . politics, but In view of the dis closures In the examination of the returns from Guadeloupe. Martinique and La Re union, just made by the new Chamber of Deputies, those colonists could qualify as teachers to any aspirants who wish to learn the trick of carrying elections without votes. Consequences of Election. One result of the election was the un seating of the negro deputy Legltimus, famous because he was absent so long during the last Parliament that his exist ence was considered as a myth by some, though he happens to be In Paris Just now. Another consequence may be to raise the whole question of the advisability of any Parliamentary representation for the colonies at least those of the West Indies. Apparently no election campaign ever takes place In Guadeloupe 'and Martinique unaccompanied by fire and slaughter. This year the proceedings were compar atively mild, only a few plantations being burnt in Guadeloupe and "some persons killed, exact number unobtainable." Colonial elections also - have their in genuously comlo side. M. Legltimus, for example, was beaten by his opponent by 000 votes when three ballot boxes still re mained to be opened. These were secreted somewhere for four days. When they were opened whole - bundles of papers for M. Legltimus poured out, and he caught up the One, with 600 extra. Hence his unseating. Incidents of the Voting:. In some colonial constltuences officers at the polling booths calmly tore up tbe papers bearing names, they disliked. A candidate turning up suddenly during such an operation, the officer, taken' by sui- prlse, swallowed the paper he was going to throw away. It stuck In his throat and he nearly died. A remarkable operation discovered dur ing the parliamentary inquiry was as fol lows: A ballot box on the first count was found to contain 324 papers for A and 127 for B. The box and the signed return were conveyed to the town hall. When It reached there the votes were 22 for A and 701 for B. A spurious certificate of the returning officer had simply been substituted, with his signature forged. Under these circumstances, does It really seem worth while to ask the colonlea to send . representatives to the home Parlia ment? This question Is being very seriously asked In tbe chamber and It la regarded as altogether probably that action wilt be taken modifying if not cutting off colonial representatives. ' Street Accidents In Paris, comparison is frequently made in America of the better manner in which street traffic Is regulated In London. Paris and other great European cities than In America. Once In a while statistics are presented which demonstrate that this alleged su periority of European cities is mythical. For example, a return Just made to the Paris municipal council Bhows that there were 66.870 street accidents in-Parl during iw in which Sl.Stig vehicles were Involved. The same return shows there are something less than 500,000 vehicles In tho city. n. eluding 20.000 hand carts and ,000 barrows. This would Indicate that at least 16 per cent or the vehicles of Phris were involved in accidents during the year. I doubt if any American city would show anything like this proposition. Leplne May Resign. M. Leplne, the famous prefect of police of Paris, may resign because of differences with the government One point of disagreement comes of the rule that all. public administrations must accept a certain number of ex-service men every, year. Thanks to this, M. Leplne Is asked to accept . as policemen two ex- soldlers, who have each nerved a term of Imprisonment. He strongly objects, and so do his men. Aetreaa Loses Hnlt. Paris rather enjoyed the suit of M. De val, manager of the Theatre de 1'Athenco against Mile. Ijinthelme for damages be cause she refused to play the part for for which she was cast In an adaptation of "Manon." The actress's defense wa-j that her part contained a situation which offended her sense of propriety. - Inasmuch aa Mile. Ijtnthelme had a short time before appeared In a play called "Le Circuit," when her role called for risque situations to which those In the new play were mild, her defense was looked on In the nature of a Joke. The court evidently took that view of it, as the actress w4s ordered to pay the manager SlOuO damagos. Balloon In Directory. Parisian reference books for next year will denote those, fortunate or otherwise, to own balloons by marking a small Wal loon or aeroplane against their nam's. This will prove very Convenient, for neigh bors who wish to commit suicide unob trusively can Just borrow the aeroplane for "a fly In the park." Homo Old-Timer. A record for longevity Is claimed for an old couple named Fayet, reaidmg al Chateldon. Pude-Dome, tbe husband oeine lot and the wife 101. Both are in excel lent health, and work unaided their small holding. REVEALS FINE L0YALT 1 Attempt to Kill General Brings Peo ple to Arms. WOULD-BE SLAYER A SUICIDE Mob Would Have Torn Annrchlat to Pieces Had He Not Taken Ills Own Life In Very Poors Orrter, .BY EMIL ANDRASSY. VIENNA, July . (Special Dispatch to The Bee.) The unsuccessful attempt to as sassinate General Baron von Varesanin as he was returning from the opening of the first Bosntan-Hcrsegovlntan diet at Serav- ejo, has served to show the splendid loy alty of the provinces to the empire. Every where In BoBnla-Hersegovlna is hard exe cration for the anarchlstlo attempt and had the would-be assassin not taken his own life he probably would have been torn to pieces by the crowd. Boydan Kavajlc, the assassin, was a stu dent and an anarchist It Is not believed he had any accom plices. , Conference In Crete. The proposal that the powers Interested In the Cretan situation hold a Joint con ference at which the whole question may be settled, meets with approval here. It is understood that Russia has tentatively sej forward the following basts of a settle ment: "Crete to retain its autonomy, but Turk ish suzerainty to be recognised by a yearly tribute. "Later on, when things become quieter, Crete, by capitalising its yearly tribute, might receive additional' autonomous rights that Is, It could be Incorporated with Greece If the latter agreed to pay purchase money to Turkey to be fixed by an agreement "Meanwhile, the rights of the Cretans to render Us relations to Greece as Intimate as possible will be recognized by various treaties and conventions." It Is considered in well-informed quar ters here very unlikely that Turkey would sanction such a proposal, and it la hardly likely that the powers will be able to reach any agreement which is satisfactory to Turkey. Troops at Election. The government is accused of employing troops from Austrian garrisons during the general election In Hungary to prevent supporters of the opposition' from reaching the polling stations. -Various concrete instances are given, in cluding one by Mr. Soton Watson, an Eng lishman, who says he was present on elec tion day at Szakolexa and found the town surrounded by a cordon of troops, through which supporters of the government candi date were allowed to pass, while several hundred Slovak electors were driven back by force. The premier. Count Khuen Hedervary, la reported . to. - have raplled .by threatening proceedings against Mr. Watson, declaring. "We are not. afraid of an Englishman., The English fleet cannot come here, and we have no fear of the English army." . THREE GORED TO DEATH IN WILD STAMPEDE OF BULLS Thrilling- Denouement of Accident on Hacienda Inhabited by Fero cious Rlns Battlers. OPORTO. July .-(Speolal Dispatch to The Bee.) A terrible encounter with bulls, which resolved Itself Into a fight on an heroic scale, took place recently at Pelayos, where there Is a large cattle ranch for the breeding of fierce Spanish bulls for the purposes of the national amusement of bull-flghtlng. Herders were engaged in separating the bulls and driving them Into enclosures when a large wooden stand, In which were many spectators from the surrounding vil lages, suddenly collapsed. Over 100 persons were thrown among ' the bulls, trampling and tossing the victims. Ten cowboys, armed with shotguns and rifles, Jumped Into the arena and fired repeatedly at bull which were charging into the crowd. Three men were gored to death and forty spectators Injured before the bulls had been placed under control. Six bulls were shot.

Pails Is determined to be "spotless as well as gay, and an edict has gone forth prohibiting the littering of the streets with waste paper. This is a matter in which Parisians have been woefully neglectful of the beauty and the Interests of their city. The reform Is to be accomplished in part by - a law prohibiting the distribution of handbills In the chief thoroughfares.' A every visitor knows, -he cannot walk alon the boulevards without having advertise ments thrust Into his hand at almost every few puce. These bills litter the boulevards In a manner which Jules Cliaretie, wilting In Le Temps, snys la Indescribably filthy. and which, with other habits which long cubtom has tolerated, make Purls the least clean looking capital In the world. In the fixture all handbills are to be taxed, and It is believed that this most primitive sys tem of advertising will thus be done away with.

The powers of the Duma are to be still further Increased and it Is not Improbable that within a few vears Russia will have advanced in the path of constitutional government until she is abreast of Prussia. This Is the opinion held by many who are high in the favor of the csar. It Is stated that his 'majesty has followed the work of the Duma with keen Interest. He convinced that the fact that Russia is less afflicted with active revolutionary ideas than she has been for many years Is due In great part to the work of th Duma and that a gradual extension of the parliamentary idea means saftety, peace and progress. Hence It is his intention to extend the scope of parliamentary author, ity as rapidly aa circumstances will permit It is understood that he has so expreagod himself, not only to some of his leading ministers, but- also to nonofflclal members of the Duma. Accused of Desecration. The upholders of orthodoxy have been waiting with great impatience the result of the extraordinary trial which has just been concluded at Mosyr, In the govern ment of Minsk, with closed doors. Five . landowners and farmers, Polish Roman Catholics, and two orthodox peas ants who accompanied them, wre charged with desecrating a Russian church by pull ling up the flooring ' and shooting two foxes which had made their lair on tne premises. In doing this they Invaded tho sanctuary and. covered with shot m4rks an Ikon of Christ, which was also bespattered with blood.' The church of St. Nicholas, the Miracle Workev, where the resecratlon occurred, ik situated, In a wood some three miles from the village of Rojlatsha. It is old and tum bledown, 'the roof la described aa rotten, and only one service is held there annually. it being shut the rest of tbe year. Once Acquitted. The charge against the prisoners dated from December, - 1306. They had already been . tried and acquitted on technical grounds. The Indictment described how the prisoners went fox-shoottng with a number of doga and forced an entranco into the church. Their footsteps and tracks were discernable on tho snow? which hud fallen through the roof on the floor of the building. There were blood stains in many places. What bad occurred was quite evi dent. One of the foxes, on being driven from the hole under the church, had dashed towards the ikon screen, and the hunters had fired at H as it made a leap on to the ikon of the Saviour. Twenty-two slut marks were found on the Ikon Itself. The second fox unearthed In the cnurcn was killed by the dogs.
