I)NDOM, Oct. . (Special to The Bee )
The belief Is growing that the government
will present a measure providing for a re
modeling of the British empire at the com
ing session of Parliament. It Is agreed
that something must he done to meet the
demand for the abo'ition of the House of
1-ords. Many member of that Institution
are now convinced that, they must make
some concession If they are to be suffered
to exist aa a branch of the government. It
U possible, as was suggested some time ago,
that the government may present a bill
providing for a legislative division of the
government similar to that prevailing In
the United Slates. That means that the
colonies and dependencies would be treated
us the separata American Btates are, each
having a home parliament of legislature
and each to have representatives In the
Imperial Parliament. A metis u re of that
kind would ensure the colonies and de
pendences home rule. Ireland, Scotland
and India would be the principal bene
flcaries, Ireland In particular. Canada
practically governs Itself. So do Australia
and New Zealand. Scotland is somewhat
Navel Sort of Iniarsae.
England has 1,000 times and In nearly all
language been charged with a lack of
originality that England never adopts
anything until the rest of the world has
tried If for fifty years. The charge Is often
Justifiable, but every now and then Eng
laiid startles the world by doing something
original or at least out of the ordinary.
Originating the Idea of Insuring men against
loss by reason of Jury serving may be said
to be "going soma." .

that it writes that form of insurance.
Modern Pagrava Sentenced.
A modern Kagan was recently arrested
and Imprisoned for a crime of a notorious
character. The surprising feature about
the sentence Imposed Is the lightness of It.
Two little girls, who are sisters, namely,
Isabella Eyre, 10 years old, and Dorothy
Eyre, 11 years old. were charged with
, stealing and picking pockets and their
father, William Eyre, was charged with
receiving the stolen property. It was In
Liverpool that the girls, who are mother
less, has been keeping their father by
thievery. They were sent to an Industrial
school and the futher was sent to prison
for six months.

.Men Who Are In Line.
It was believed that Italy had decided to
advance twelve churchmen to the cardi-

The sjiectaclo of a murderer going free
within threo months of his belnir sen

happened In tho ca6 uf Hie KusHlan stu

notorious Tarnowakl citnio will be re

In 1907, at Venice, and was sentenced In
May last to thrte years and one month Im
prisonment, Including the time already !
spent In prison previous to his sentence.
Although It was Dr. Naumoff who actu- !
ally shot Count Kamarovskl, tie juiy found
that he did so under the Influence and at
the instigation of a countess. Count Kaina
rovskl's mistress, with whom he was pas
sionately in love, and that when he com
mitted the crime he was in such a state of
mental Infirmity as to weaken his responsi

When she heard that her lover was about

The government is apprehensive lest

PARIS, Oct 211. (Special to The Bee.)
The government proposes to secure the
passage of a special law to wipe out the
plague of criminals sometimes called
"Apaches." whose only resemblance to the
American Indian tribe of that mime '.a that !
they eat. "Apaches" arc nun who laugh
at and break all laws, moral and civil. ,
They are supported by women. They arc!
burglars or pickpockets, who carry
weapons, and use them. Apaches are In
creasing in number; they are becoming
more during. Heretofore JudgeB have been
too easy with them, frequently turning
them loose or giving llgnter sentenoes than
a New York mag strate sometimes Inflicts
on a simple misdemeanor.
The minister of the Interior will intro
duce a new bill to deal with the Apaches
so neverely that they will think twice be
fore plunging daggers Into the breast of
a passerby or of shooting him. Hereto
fore these criminals have only served half
time when In prison. The new law will
provide for confinement at hard labor. No
exception will be made to this rule. In the
new prisons, such as that of Frosnes, the
prisoners are too comfortable. They have
steam heating, electric lighting, are al
lowed to smoke, and call such punishment
"being sent out to take a rest."
Whipping Post Not Likely.
The whipping post advocates are in
creasing in number and probably would
have their way but for M. Barthon, minis
ter of Justice, who la opposed to the lash.
Many of the Apaches' viotims are Ameri
cans, four being the count In two days re
cently. M. Barthon thinks more severity
on the part of the magistrates, a pro
longed period of bard labor, will be as
efficacious as the whip, if not more so.
The "cat" is Impossible in a country like
France, thinks M. Barthou. What a row
there would be, he says. Besides, would It
be possible to find Frenchman willing
to undertake the task of flogging a crim
inal? On this point a writer In the Ll
berte suggests that Barthou should adver
t se for a "flogger," and wagers that the
ministry of justice would he flooded with
applications In twenty-four hours. But our
minister of Justice will not have the cat at
any price, though he promises that his
method of hard labor will out down the
Apache and Paris ans will be able to walk
the boulevards and even the side streets
without risk. There Is little doubt that
the sentimentalists or "humanitarians"
will gain the day, and It Is safe to predict
that the lash will not be used here.
Box Murderers Confess.
Two boys, George T-ssler, 17 year, and
Paul Demarest, 16, who murdered a bank
collector named Ar.dre In a house occu
pied by Tlssler'a mother In the Boulevard
de la Vlllette, ten days ago, have been
caught and have confessed.
They admit that the murder was pre
meditated. One of the prisoners drew a
bill against the other, and when the col
lector called to receive payment he said
he had no money and requested him to
leave the paper. While he was engaged In
filing in the necessary entries one youth
stabbed him in the necki The other struck
him on tho head with a hammer.
Gnldeposts for Flyers.
The French National Aviation league has
decided that certain signs be put up on
land so that aviators may know which way
they are traveling. During the eastern
circuit, Manet, Logagneux and Leblanc
had to alight on the earth to see where
they were traveling to. and others lost
piizes simply because they went In the
wrong direction, unconsciously.
It is proposed to place Immense numbers
on the ground, at all points in the country,
in the city, in villages. Places marking a
point will be designated by two numbers,
one indicating the distance north or soutli
on a parallel with Paris, the other number
indicating tiie distance west or east of tiie
If an aviator loses his bearings he will
see the numbers ltiS-53. This will tell him
that he Is PiS kilometers north of the
parallel of Pari. and fir.y-three kilometers
east of its meridian. Now how can he
Knew that he is south Instead of north?
The numbers will be underlined. For In
tance, If tre last number is underlined, he
will know that he is south, and if the first
figure is underlined it will tell him that he
Is east of the meridian.
Dies on Lover's Grave.
Gjvbriello Prevet, the 20-year-old sweet
heart of Edmund Polllot, the aviator who
was killed while flying at Chartres, shot
herself on her lover's grave In Montmarte

girl learned the news of her lover's ac
