SHADOW OF CHRISTMAS
Increase of Navy-Evidence of Social
Barriers Breaking Down-Drunk
enness in Glasgow-Washington
London, Dec. 29. Miserable rain,
fog nnd dirt mado Christmas week of
evil memory In Kngland. Depressing
gloom, In thorough harmony with tho
weather, settled over tho country. Tho
coasts were strewn with wrecks,
commcrco wns out of joint nnd the
puolls wns bitterly digesting tho criti
cism of the British nrmy. The de
mand for Major Oenernl Sir Henry
E. ColvlP'V resignation, thrown as a
sop, only germ to whet tho rnvenous
appetites rf those who aro howling
for tho rctprinsllilllty of tho reverses
In South Af . r. being brought homo
Moro heads are demnnded. Where
so many must be blamablo It is felt
that tho selection of Clenernl Colvlllo
Is woefully Inadequate, if not unfair.
Indeed, It Is already said that had not
the yeomanry forco at l.lndley, which
Colvlllo failed to relievo. Included
some of tho nobility nnd other Influ
ential persons, Colvlllo would never
have been recalled. Tho bitterness
felt by theso yeomanry at being com
pelled to surrender becnuse, as they
allege, Colvlllo refused to render tho
aid within his power, has never died
nut. and It will probably result in ono
of tho most Interesting court mnrtlals
in tho annals of tho British nrmy.
upon tho result of which will depend
tho fmo ot several other high officers
who have proven unequal to tho oc
casion. Tnc liberal papers comment severe
ly on tho nceeptnnco by the war ofllco
of n contingent of Maoris from Now
Zcnland. Tno Star soyn:
"Tho effect of this stupid blunder
011 the Dutch will bo terrible. After
declining to employ Indian troops, wo
nro tnklng n pnltrv hundred Mnorls.
This will not onlv Infuriate tho Dutrli,
but It wllj insult tho Indian troops,
who will regnrd It nn n declaration of
their Inferiority to nn Inferior colored
race. Go on, O government of mud
dlers! IJven the gods could not savo
you from your own Invincible, folly."
However, there nro signs of tho
dawn of that common sense, the lack
of which tho Kngllsh critics bo de
plore In tho military system, for tho
cavalry now going out to South Africa
Is discarding tho lanco and enrhtno and
substituting for theso wenpons rifles
nnd sabreo. After over a year's fight
ing tho authorities hnvo woko up to
the utter uselessness of lances and
cnrblnes, considering thnt thousands
of British soldiers hnvo never seen a
Boer during tho many engagements.
Whllo Oreot Britain is tied hnnd
nnd foot In South Africa, tho navy,
which is not escaping tho wavo of
criticism. Is quietly increasing Its
stiength nnd morale. For months both
men nnd ships hnvo boon kept In nn
unusunl stato of readiness, nnd thero
nre now building In British yards no
fewer than eleven bnttlo ships, nine
teen cruisers nnd fourteen smaller
vessels, totaling nearly 400,000 tons.
Theso Includo vessels which hnvo bcon
tried but are unfinished.
Tho gradual icmnrnl of tho social
barriers which formerly restricted
Kngllsh polltlcnl and educntlonnl life
was never better Instnneeo than by
tho appointment this week of Mr. Jo
seph Owen to n fellowship nt Oxford.
Six years ago Mr. Owen was a mill
hand at Oldham, helping to support
his poor Varents. rio attended at night
tho University extension lectures, nnd
so much ability did ho show that tho
lecturers got up a fund and sent him
to tho great University, where, with
his wife, ho settled down In nn hum
bio cottnge. Ho knew- no Oreek nnd
little I.ntln. His first success camo
when ho won the Brnckcnburg hlhtory
scholarship, to tho surprise f many
learned, aristocratic competitors. Four
years of determined, up-hill work
passed nnd the final examinations
drew nenr. On n tiositlon In theso de
pended Mr. Owen's wholo future.
A fow weeks beforo tho ordeal his
young wlfo died suddenly. Mr. Owen's
friends thought It Impossible for him
to accomplish anything: but the mill
hand's grit stood tho strain nnd Mr.
Owen gained tho coveted first class
with tho degree. Ills appointment ns
extension lecturer quickly followed.
nnd Mr. Owen lectured where, olx
yen previous, he had learned. Tho
climax in his career camo this week,
when Pembroke College elected Mr.
Owen out of nil tho Oxonians to tho
lucrntivo and honored post (if follow.

PUSHING THE CANAL HILL.
Washington, Dec. 28. Whllo tho
majority of the members of Congress,
In discussing tho Nicaragua canal
prospects, Incline to bellevo thnt noth
Ing can bo accomplished this session,
Senator Parkins maintains that tho
outlook cannot be cnlied discouraging
yet. Ho believes tho cnnal bill will
pass during February, mid that Kntj
land, within a reasonable time, will
accept the llay-Paunocfote treaty.
In conversation today bo Bald: "Tho
Impression seems to hnvo gone abroad
that the United States ran not or will
not do nnythlng toward cnnal legisla
tion until Kngland Is heard from
This Is not correct. The canal bill
will bo called up In tho Senate by
Senator Morgan In duo time, without
reference to the Hny-Pnunccfoto trea
ty, and from what 1 can learn the bill
will be passed. Tho mil may bo held
back until the end of January, purely
out of courtesy to (Ireat Ilrltaln, In
order to give her tlmo to consider tho
Hny-Pauncofoto treaty, but there Is
nothing requiring the Senate to hold
up tho bill In abeyance pending rati
fication of the treaty, and It will not
bo so held.
"As to tho fate of the treaty, I am
firmly convinced that England will nc
ccpt It as amended, and that nil tho
fenrs of canal adherents that tho dip
lomatic negotiations will indefinitely
delnv construction nro Imaginary. Eng
land knows that we want tho cnnal
and nre bound to hnvo It whether the

DECLINE OF THE CIGARETTE.

Information that there has been n great
decrease In the use ot cigarettes, an I

largo cities of the country have had
much to do with tho decrease in their
use, and thero Is no denying that tho
crusade carried on by tho women and
other opponents lins also had a great
effect. Ho does not bcllcvo tho ilU
uppenranco of the clgarctto from such

of tho tobacco habit Is less general
and ho adds that tlio only difference Is
thnt more cigars are being used, Tho
"Another thing that has killed tho
clgarctto Is tho general practice ot roll

Another cause for tho decline of tho
