OF
Anglo-American Baronet Owns
Big Slice of Scotland.
ia_.i___. "o*2- ** the E*,*r'twoo<J *-*<>-'vany>
fiTr Archlbald Slnclalr, twenty-two years
ftf ??? ? ?o?tenant of the 2d Life Guards,
nnd who ls half American. has Juet suc
ceedcd to the tltle and tho immenfle es
i.tea of his nonagenarian grandfather,
tne late Sir John Tollemache Sinclair.
The landed property is very great, ex
tend'ng over an area of a hundred square
miles ln Scotland. comprlslng some of the
Tnest shooting ln the northern klngdom
and the wonderfully. picturesque castle
of Thurso. whlch lookB over the atormy
t|de, 0f the Pentland Flrth. and ls so
IlZ to the sea that one can llterally
ti'.,, from the spray flecked window. Just
east of the castle. whlch ls exeeedlngly
spacloua. is Harold's Tower, contalnlng
the tomb of Earl Harold, who was the
po-.-e.sor at one Ume of half of Orkney,
0_ shotland and of Calthness. and who
pll in battle agninst hls namesake. Earl
Harold the Wicked, in 1190.
Btr \r~hibalds mother was Mabel. the
beautiful daughter of Mahlon Sands. of
NOW Vork, and through her he ls con?
nected by tles of klnmanshlp wlth a num?
ber of New York famlllea. Including the
Rutherfurds and the Vanderbilts. Slr
Ar hlbald wlll be known from henceforth
north of the Tweed as the Laird of Ulb
tter and has now becomo chleftaln of
Mt af the branches of that great Clan
of Slnclalr of whlch the seventecnth Earl
of Calthness ls the head.
Hls (rrandfnther. the late Slr John. was
B very eccentric character. He n.rely lf
n r ilned at a resta.irant ln vogue. never
used to go to a theatre or to the opera, or
even to a rausic hall. rarely dined out.
anfl was never aeeu at a ball or party.
ln aplte of hlB great wealth. he had
no carrlages. horses or automoblle..
walked by preferenee, and when rldlng
was tmperatlve made use of the demo?
cratlc omnlbus. He would live on her
rlngs and homlny. cooked ln hU lodglngs
just 01T St. Jamcs's Btreet by himaelf. over
a splrlt lamp, and then on the followlng
day would fU88 over ibe merits or demer
lts of the world-famed chef of the Trav?
ellers. the moat exclusive club ln London,
of whlob thi. wonderful old laird. wlth
his odd-looking wlg and hla beard. hla
erect and spare, tall figure and hla ex
traordinary flow of conversatlon, waa one
of ihe oldest members.
ln splte of his numerous castlea, coun
trv seats and housea, ln England, Scot?
land snd on the Continent, ho lived en?
tirely during the laat thirty yeara of hla
life ln his lodglngs off St James'. street.
the wall. of whlch were hung with the
not partlcularly attractive Slnclalr tar
tan. lt. hues, however, were more or
less concealed by the most hcterogene
ous collection of pictures, .ome of them
prlceles. gems, others the most worthless
daubs. Even the celllngs were covered
therewltli. po that in order to do Juatice
to them one had to lle on one's back. In
one word, his rooms. llk^hls castle. and
country seats, were fllled wlth a mlxture
of art treasures and art rubbish.
To record Slr John'B eccentrlcitte. would
flll a volume. Some year. ago he en
dcavored to relleve the monotony of the
poorhouses all over England and Scotland
by presentlng them wlth gramophone..
the record. consistlng, however, not of
popular tunes, but of speeches whlch he
had delivered and of recitatlons whlch he
had given either of his own works or of
his favorlte authors.
Among the latter, flrst and foremost,
vas Byron, and among the most extr_aor
dlnary memorlal. that have ever been
rUv.s.-d to perpetuate the name of thi.
or of any other fcard ls that whlch Sir
John concelved and put Into exccutlon.
Instead of taking the form of a statue, lt
asaumed the altogether utllitaxian .hape
of an offlce bulldlng occupying the .lte
of the old offlce. of the London comlc
Weekly "Punch," on the south side of
Fleet street. near St Brlde'. Church.
Every stone of the hall pavement of thls
great offlce building (which wlll bring ln
a large lncome to hla grandson atid helr,
the new baronet, young Sir Archlbald, in
the way of rental) ia inacribed "Byron,
the Pllgrim of Etemlty," and the dates
?f his blrth and death. Each tltle Ib
adorned wlth the jwords "Crede Byron."
whlle on every block of marble llnlng the
Walla are versea from hla poema, partlcu?
larly Btanzas from "Chllde Harold" and
"Don Juan."
And aa lf Byron'. ver.es were not suffl
aient other InBcrlptions on the wallB
record the oplnlons expresBed concernlng
hlm by such men as Schlller, Goethe, Vle?
tor Hugo, Iaamartine, Tenny.on, Chateau
kland. Slr Walter Scott and Matthew
Arnold. Vct another lnscrlptlon on the
wall states that the Brttlsh Muiieum
lfhrary catalogue devotee twenty-elght
aages to Byron and only ten to Tennyson.
On stlll another Slr John Slnclalr recalla
tfce faet that one edltlcm for the bllnd haa
been publlBhed of Byron'e works and none
of Tennyson'a. Over the entrance 1. a
btautlful medallion portralt of Byron ln
Whlte marble. wlth Shelley's splendld epl
Hrh, "The Pllgrim of Etemlty," and I
ne-d acarcely Bay that the offlce bulldlng
bears the name of Byron House.
One would be likely to lmagine that the
overwhelmlng quantlty of Byronic quota
tfons. adornlng aa they do every'vacant
place, every stone and tlle and all the
wall.. floorB and celllnga, would be likely
to get on the nervea of the occupanta.
But apparently thi. 1. not the case. The
oul.ding i. full of tenanta. Slr John, who
was a proltflc poet on his own aecount.
was modct enough. however. to put only
?n<- single one of hla own vorae* on the
walls of Byron House. It I. a. follow.:
thr o-ir all barda thy fame. dear Byr_*. ever
towera: _.
*fcy glory wanted not, though wantlng wer- ie
aaura.
And beneath there ls an lntlmatlon that
tfc'H blt of rhyme, auch aa lt ia, la from
the t>en of "Sir John Tollemache Sinclair,
Bfcrt.. who has erected the bulldlng to the
a*mory and glory of Byron."
I am sorry lo aay, however, that Slr
Jehn'a own poetry doea not appeal to hla
eoiployca. One of the elevator men, on
fcolng aaked about lt, remarked of these
BO-.: "It ls the only blt of poetry ln the
whole bulldlng. exceptlng the foreign
Hecea, that I cannot for the ilfe of me
0tK.er.tand."

SPEAKS FOR STEFANSSON
Museum of Natural History- Out
in a Statement.
VilhJtUmur Stefansson, the explorer,
popularly known of lata as the "<lls
coverer of the blond Esklmos," is.-ued a
statement yesterday In conjunctlon wlth
an ofllclal circular from the Amerlcan
Museum of Natural History, denying
statements sttrlbuted to him, and ex
plaining what he sald concerning the
strange people he met among the Ea
klmos of i*oronatlon Gulf and vlclnlty.
It was as follows:
I have never sald to any one that I
dlscovered 2,000 pure Scandinavtans or
any other number of pure Scandlnavlans
ln Coronatlon Oulf or anywhere tlse In
the Arctlc. I never sald that the people
ln question had "no Mongollan charac
terlstlcs whatever," I never sald they had
any connectlon with Leif thu Lucky.
nor wlth a Roandinavlan colony ln New
foundland, nor did I ever hear of such
a oolony before the newspapers nuot?*d
me as dlscusslng lt. I never sald the*
weapons or Implements of the Coronatlon
Oulf Eskimo, or any other Amerlcan
Arctlc people known to inc resembled
those of the Noree colonlsis ln Green
land. What I did say has been brlerty
summarized ln the statement Issued by
the museum.
The museum's statement, after referring
to the tendency toward blondness of the
Eakimo.H in question, says:
It is too early to settle d"flnltely on
any theory explaining the faots. Of the
varlous explanatlons that have so far
been suggested, it seems to Mr. Stefans?
son that the one open to tho fewest se
rlous objectlon.** is thnt of the admlxtur?
of a large amount of European blood, at
sotne falrly reniote period. ln this con?
nectlon the dlsappearance ln the flfteenth
or slxteenth centurles of the Norse colony
from Greenland, sugge-sts its. lt as a
posslble source of the European-like
character.

Americans ln the Ilght for an Irish Parlla?
ment, and pald a tribute to every man of

A ault ln equlty was begun ln the Fed?

by Morris & Plante, of No. 135 Broadway,
as counsel for the Journal of Commerce
and Commercial Bulletin Company, a cor?
poratlon whlch publlshes the daily newa
paier known ae "The Journal of Com?

a weekly, against Frank Hitchcock, PoBt
master General; George \V. WickerBham,
Attorney General; Edward M. Morgan,
Postmaster, nnd Henry A. Wlse, District
Attorney, for the purpo.e of testlng the
cnn8titutionallty of the postal approprla

editors, pub_sher.s and buslness managers
or owners of every newspaper, magazlne,
periodical or other publlcation to file wlth
the postal authorltlea statements not
later than October 1, rcgardlng clrcula
tlon nnd the like, under penalty of beng
excludcd from tho mnlls.
The Journal of Commerce and Com?
mercial Bulletin Company states ln tho
complalnt that It has mora than 11,000,000
lnvested ln Its daily and weekly publlca?
tlons, whlch have wide and favorable
reputatlons as advertlsing medliims, wtth
subscribers ln all parts of the country,
and that tha papers nre dlstributed by
thi) postal service, belng carried as second
class mall matter.
It adds that the dcnlal of the uae of the
mejls for the clrculatlng of the two pub
llcatlon.i would result ln the loss of Ita
subscrtptlon llst and the loss ln tbe an
nual sales of many thousands of coptes
of the newspaper and much advertlsing
patronago.
The* complalnt further esserts that, tn
addition to the newapapera owned and
pubbllshed by the Journal of Commerce
and Commercial Bulletin Company, up
wards of 25.000 newspapera. magazlnec and
I-erlodic_ld are publlshed In and through
out the Cnlted Rtatee, each of whlch 1*
dolng a large and thrlvlng buslness, and
together th<- owners- thereof have made
lnvestments In thls country of cash
aggregatlng m.iny mllllonn of dollars, and
eac,h and all of them are cqually affocted
by the leglslatlve enactment which lt ts
clalmed vlolate. the Klrst and Fifth
amendments to the Constltutlon, and be?
lng therefore unconstltutlonal, ls vold and
can havo no force or effect.
The complalnt further states that the
Journal of Commerce and Commercial
Bulletin Company has never d!sc!->sed the
clrculutlon of Its publlcatlons to the pub?
lic or to offlcials of the government (ex
ce|-t ln so far nn necessary to secure

ance weekly ag^ second cla.n mutter), and
that nelther tbe 1'iiited Stiitrs nor the

nor ha-s anything to do wlth or bear. any
reiatlon to the regulatlon of the m.ll. or

The complalnt states that as It Ib the
duty of Postmaster General Hitchcock
and the other defendanta to commenee
crlmlnal proseeutlot. to recover from tho
complalnant flnes and penaltlea In ac
rurdanco wllh the provlsion of the new

wlll be subjected to a multiplldty of
s^its and proaecutlons and the property
wlll be taken and ril-aii-ted by lines, and
lt wlll huffer Irreparablo lnjury.
It ls alaa BaBOftei that lt ls necessary
for the proper enjoyment of Its property
and tho carrylng on of Its buslness that
the complalnant he permltted to contlnue
the um- of the mnlls and that as there Ib
no adcqUHt'i remedy at law a suit ln
equlty has heen undertaken to test tho
postal publiclty law, lt being added that
In the absence of rellef through equlty
the penaltles would be unreasonable and
cor fiacatory, and would deprlve tho Jout
nal of Commerce and Commerdal Bul?
letin Company of Its llberty and property
without due prooess of law, and would
llkewlpe d-ny to lt equal protection of

The Federal District Court ls therefore
asked to protect the company against the

MAXWELL DEfENDS SELF:
Superlntendent Upholds His
Age-Rating Policy.
TO TRY SCHOOL RALLIES
Board Members to Attend Po
litical Meetings and Report
on What Happens.
Ib a cnmmunlcatlon to the Board of
Educatlon yesterday Dr. Wllllam H.
Maxwell. Superlntendent of Clty Schools,
warned the public and the press to pay
little attention to statements derogatory
to the public schools that masqueraded
as parts of Professor Hanus's report or
as rupplementary thereto.
The superlntendent's cnmmunlcatlon
was ln answer to a report recently
brought out by Dr. Frank P. Bachman.
of the Hanus- school lnqulry commlttee.
Ur. Maxwell's letter to the board stated
that an lnqulry addressed to Professor
Hanus had ellelted thls reply:
I have not seen thls report of Bach
man's before. nor have I had anythlng
to do wlth lt, consequently I have not
authorized Its publlcatlon In the news?
papers. It ls no part of the report whlch
I am submitting to the commlttee on
school lnqulry
Thls statement by Professor Hanus, tb'a
Clty Superlntendent declares, ls sufflolent
wamlng to beware of statements purport
Ing to be part of the Hanus report. He
refers to Dr. Bachman In quotatlon marks
as "educatlonal expert" to the commlttee
on school lnqulry.
Contlnulng, Dr. Maxwell says:
Inasmuch, however. as Dr. Bachman
has assalled. Indircctly. my honesty of
purpose ln treatlng the subject of "over
age," I feel constralned to notlce some ot
hls statements.
The crlterlon of efflclency whlch Dr.
Bachman seta up mlght be appllcable?
though even that ls doubtful-to a homo
geneous Engllah speaklng communlty ln
whlch children are sent to school at the
earlleat legal ag<*. It dlstlnctly does not
apply to New York. where the foreign
born, or the children of the foreign born.
constttute 40 per cent of the populatlon,
and where the majorlty of the foreign
children are not (amlliar wlth our lan?
guage when they enter achool.
By a single illuatration, Dr. Maxwell
aatd. he would expose the fallacy of the
Bacbman argument. He polnted out that
the author of "The Promlaed Land" sald
she waa thirteen years old when she
came to thls country from Russla. In a
little more than four years she paaaed
through the nlne-year course ln the Boa?
ton elementary schools.
Must Considee Conditiona.
"Tet on any baala of normal age yet
propoaed." aays Dr. Maxwell, "she would
have been ratad aa over agt* throughout
the entlre course. On Dr. Bachman _ hy
potheaia her presenca ln a Boston Fchool
woutd have b_en adduced aa evldence of
ineflldency. So much for the everlastlng
fallacy of conslderlng flgurea wlthout
conaiderlng the condltlons under whlch
they arlse.
"Unless very much better reasons than
any advanced by Dr. Bachman are laid
before me I shall adhere to the standarda
of normal age whlch I adopted ln 1904.
and whlch have heaet followed by the ma?
jorlty of aupertntendenta ln other cltlea."
When tbe readlng of the communlcatlon
waa flnlahed ni.-nibers of tha board clua
tered about Dr. Maxwell. and a reaolution
waa adopt/d to print It and glve tt wlde

At the laat meeting of the board tbe re?
ports of assoclate aupertntendenta and
others revlewlng the work of the last

lll. In some reports. which Mr. Churchlll
said lt *aa Imperatlva to InveaUgate,
were draatlo allegatlons of low ethlcal
standard ln the teachlng force. and there
w.-ro other features of Intereet ln a re?

Retlrement I_?W."
"Thls board should not parmlt to pass
unquestloned theae serious reproaohes

Mr. t'hurchlll.
It waa alleged ln one report referred to

performed by the clerk or Jtuiltor.
