LONDON. June 1 (Special to Th Bee.)
Aelde from tne House of Lords questton.
the. drain Inn of Scotland's population Is
causing mora discussion than any other
Whether the emigration can ba stopped,
and If so. how. la too big- a question to
discuss her. But wa may talca It that the
thing will only ha done hy giving a Scotch
man aa much Inducement to remain In hla
own country aa he now receives to transfer
hla home to Canada, and the only way In
which I should expect thla to be done la
by alterations in the land system. It la
worthy of note In thla connection that the
House of Lords has been blocking land
legislation In Scotland for five years.
Lasn4airse "Reform" Bill.
The Lansdowne bill for the reform of ths
House of Lords sets up a second chamber,
smaller by half than the present house,
and representative of the nation. Of the
343 members, of which the new house Is
to ba composed. It Is suggested that 220
shall be present aa reflecting the political
opinion of the day; that la to say, 100 will
be nominated by the crown on the advice
of tha ministry and L will be elected for
districts by those numbers of the House
of Commons whose constituencies are
within tha area. The third group
consists of 1U0 to be elected by the existing
House of Lords from such of their own
nunjber as have duly qualified by dis
tinguished service to tha state. The form
of election Is to ba such that tha minority
hall ba fully represented.
WhU Ktff Able Maw.
In this war it will be possible to retain
In tha House of Lords experienced ad
ministrators, retired cabinet ministers,
colonial governors; heads of government
departments and former members of tha
Houaa of Commons. Except for this group,
membership of tha House of Lords la open
to- everyone, Tha present anomaly of 1
' political repr rnititlnn ts rairractad.. and
. there la aa equal chance for both parties
In tha naw houaa. At present there been
no attempt at detailed criticism, and the
opinion is general that Lord Lanedowna
has devised a solution, of tha reformed
second houaa problem. But the radicals
do not want a reformed second chamber
in any practical sense of tha word; that
those, who do not frankly declare them
selves one chamber men aim at practically
tha same object by a Parliament bllL which.
It passed aa It stands, deprives tha upper
house of all legislative powers.
KlMsr'a Tailors an Strike.
strike of tailors here haa developed
tha fact that nearly all tha clothes for the
king's oorunation are being made In sweat
shops. Unless employers and workmen
come to terms, the whole of the high-class
clothing trade will be disorganized and the
necessary preparations which are being
made for the coronation delayed. The
Society of Tailors and Tailoresses is ask
ing the employers to provide workshops for
tha whole or tno employes Decors ma ex
piration of two years, and that. In the
meantime, tha employers shall pay work
men at the rate of la In the pound on the
earnings, but not leas than la per week,
as compensation for tha non-provision of
accommodation. Tha masters are not in
clined to fail in with tha demand.
Soma startling sidelights on the condi
tions under which tha garments of the
aristocracy are produced were revealed by
James BIyth, secretary of tha Society of
Tailors and Tailoresses. At tha present
time clothing for tha great majority of the
west end shops la made In the homes of
the workers or In moms rented by them
In So ho. and so disgusting ts the environ
ment lq many cases that the system la a
constant source of danger to those whose
garments are made In such surroundings.

of the coronation. The costliest ooro na

coronation robes and about CTD.OOs on the

it was excluded from the Abbey. George

and William IV, detesting pomp, bad
everything connected with hla coronation
reduced to the lowest limits, and sue

The American consul general. J. L.
Griffith, asked by the State department
for a report on the number of Americans
resident In London has given an estimate

simply a guess. Several attempts have

Mr. Griffith's estimate Is considered j
quite conservative. Americana are found 1
in every walk of life in London. They i
are. however, wldelv scattered. In the I

The Orangemen of the north of Ireland,
egged on by Tory politicians, are circulat
ing a petition urging Protestants to fight
against home rule. The petition reads aa
"We. the Protestants of Ireland, recog
nizing how closely religion and politics are
connected In' thla country, view with alarm
the proposal of his majesty's government
to grant a measure of home rule, believing
that any such measure, however carefully
drafted, cannot guard against the insidious
workings of Rome, whose Interference has
ever been prejudicial to the peace of the
community and the prosperity of tha na
tion. "We pray you not to take this step which
will drive many of our brethren from these
shores, leaving those wbo must remain to
fight a hard battle against- organised boy
oort." Tha idem la that each parson, receiving
the document ts to make at least six cop
ies, to fill one himself; and send five to
five Protestant friends, who In turn are
expected to fill one and to tnaka copies and
forward them on to their friends, and so on,
until tha name of every Protestant In Ira
land opposed to home rule haa been se
cured. When that has been accomplished,
it in proposed to present the petition to
Parliament with tha hope of preventing
tha passing of the borne rule bill.
Bias a Daaonaces Csmstlos.
During a recent official visitation ai
North Clare. Bishop O'Dea. Catholic bishop
of Gsiway, bitterly denounced political cor
ruption and bribery. He compared men
who gave or accepted bribes to robbers
and murderers. In tha course of his ad
dress the bishop said the people had a
splendid opportunity to show that Catholic
Ireland would be worthy of Its best tradi
tions, and they should elect the best men.
There haa been, amongst some people, a
tendency to vota tor men, because of party
Interests, or because they were cousins or
friends on whom they could rely to do "a
turn" for them.
Hs knew of three men who took 30 each
for their votes, careless of whether the
man they voted for waa the best or not.
The selling of votes like that was despic
able, dishonest, falsa to Catholic principles,
selfish and unmanly. The man who sold
his Tots would sell tha Urea of the people.
Sheep stealers had been treated with ig
nominy,, and he hoped the sellers of votes
would be similarly dealt with. A man who
puts a rogue into office was worse than a
He wished to have public opinion created
which would not tolerate bribery, and
would drive out of public life the man who
took a bribe. In a recent Galway election
tha people bad elected honest men and the
Improvement was encouraging. They were
likely to get home rule within a few years.
Irlaa la Loyal Rnea.
John Redmond, the Irish leader, recently
wrote an article for an English publication
wherein he denied that the Irish were dis
loyal to the British government. He con
tended that Irishmen are by instinct and
nature not a disloyal but a loyal people.
This has been proved by the test of his
tory, which shows how repeatedly Ireland
has previously suffered for - Its faithful
loyalty to English sovereigns. It has been
proved also by the loyalty of Irishmen In
every self-governing dominion' in the em
pire. Irishmen, generation after generation,
bava struggled to obtain something to be
loyal to. Home rule will create loyalty In
Ireland, aa it had done in Canada. Aus
tralia and South Africa, and it ths fears
similar to those about Irish "disloyalty"
in tha future have been allowed to prevail
against the concession of horns rule to
Canada. Australia and South Africa, and
if the tears similar to those about Irish
"disloyalty" in tha future have been allowed
to prevail against ths concession all these
possessions of ths crown would bs Inde

ST. PETERSBURG, J-.ir.e 1 (Special to

that the entente between France and Rus
sia Is very much alive and Russian sup
port will be back of France in any clasii
which may ar.se. There is h.gh authority
for the statement that the Imperial Rus
sian government has had occaaion to
nitify its views on the subject to the Ger

takable terms. The authorities of ths
Wilhelmstratfse have been officially In
formed that, tn the opinion of the govern
ment of his majesty, the Tsar, the action
of Franca in Morocco is perfectly legiti
mate, and warranted by the circumstances.
In this way the Imperial Russtan govern
ment haa found, and haa promptly utilised,
a fitting opportunity to tender In an ap
propriate manner its diplomatic support to
Sasojsisff Slav ateeaver.

The fact that the condition of the em

that at the time I first called attention to

ously declared In official circles that he

As a matter of fact he shows symptoms of

In connection with the emperor's state
of health the agitation in Hungary for
steps to be taken for an act of recogni
tion of the duchess of Hohenberg, morga

Frederick, mother ot six girls and one little

Austria, recently discovered a novel way of
selling some lace that is made by the
Hungarian peasants under her sgtronsga,
On her way back from Spain, where she
had bean visiting the queen mother, she
stopped for a few daya In Paris. Driving
in a motor car to one after another of the
best shops for feminine finery, she went
In . her car- to the head of the firm, like
any commercial traveler. Then; followed
by two lackeys, bearing bags died to the
brim with beautiful and costly lace, she
entered the shop when It was srowded
with elegant buyers. Seated before a coun
ter, she displayed her patterns, named the
prioes. and put down the chief's orders In
a neat little notebook that had her Initials
and the imperial crown on the cover. Of
course, the customers gathered round and
observed the pretty scene, a description ot
which they spread all over Paris. Immed
iately society women were anxious to buy

Preacher's Bluff Called.
A dramatic scene tn a church was en
acted ac the Hungarian village of Okany,
when the Protestant preacher, a young and
brilliant preacher named Alexander Ekel,
addressed his congregation off the subject
of the duty ot forgiving Injuries. He spoke
with such eloquence that there was not a
dry eye In the church when he completed
his sermon. Hs concluded with a most
touching preoratlon and proceeded to the
altar, walking as If In rapt contemplation.
A woman, who had been sitting at the
church had come to the front without any
one noticing her. She threw herself at the
pastor's feel saying: "You preach for
giveness and recondlllatlon. Now forgive
your poor wife who does not know what
wrong she haa done you, and let her re
turn to her home."
The pastor was struck dumb at the sight
of the wife whom hs believed to be far
away, and the congregation, who had be
lieved that he waa unmarried, crowded
round to see the woman who claimed to be
hla wife. The pastor decared coldly that
she knew that he had sent her back to
her parents after a tew weeks' marriage,
and that he would not take her back on

Recruiting against Turkey Is In progress
here. On the red stage In that little cor
ner of southwestern European Turkey,
where the heroic Albanians are fighting
for their existence, a new factor Is about
to make Its appearance. It is a Garibal
dlan volunteer contlgent. founded on the
lines of the famous red -shirt ed Cacclatort
which drew the sword for Italy. Through
out the land which halls Garibaldi as
liberator, the struggle betwnea the moun
taineers of Albania and their Turkish op
pressors Is followed with a deep interest.
Ties of kinship and of rellirlon bind Italy
to Albania. So It haa eome a hour that
a Garlbaldlan legion for service In Albania
la being fitted out here. It will be under
the command of General Ricclottl Gari

Anxious to preserve a correct diplomatic

legion are to be arrested wherever found.

The -royernment eould speedily end' the
movement By breaking up the committees

So arms are being collected and' uniforms
got ready for the legion- within a stone's
throw of the Chamber of Deputies. Some
volunteers are attracted by religious or
patriotic fervor, others by love of adven
ture. Many possess honorable military rec
ords. As the corps of which they form
part Is to be, as far as passible, self-supporting,
the recruits must come provided
with a sum of money. .
