CALLS ON IRISH
TO MAKE AMOK
Windle Declares Sixty Millions
Are Expended Yearly on Im
ported Necessities.
By Timothy J. O'Connor.
JtaxiMl SgcUl Service.
Dublin, Dec. 2.Professor Windle,
M.A., M.D., RBS., Cork, is the lat
est man of prominence to take up the
eudgels in favor of Ireland's neglect
ed industries. In the course of an in
terview Professor Windle said that
last year 81,549 pairs of boots had
been imported into Ireland from Bos
ton alone. If Irish people got their
boots from Boston and England, he
said, the boys and girls of Ireland
would have to go there to make them.
Industrial development was therefore
the complement of technical instruc
tion.
Professor Windle then referred to
the unsatisfactory aspect of emigra
tion to England and gave a vivid de
scription from actual experience of
the undesirable conditions under
which the Irish people were compelled
to live in English cities. As an illus
tration of the way in which the Irish
people treat their own industries, Pro
fessor Windle said that last year the
value of boots imported into this coun
try was $135,000 the estimated value
of imported soap, $500,000 of can
dles, $315,000 and of starch, $300,-
000, making in all about $1,250,000.
All of these things might be got in
Ireland quite as good as imported ar
ticles. The best blankets in the world
were made in Ireland, and yet 20,000
pairs, worth from $75,000 to $100,000,
had been imported into Dublin last
year.
Sixty Millions a Tear.
It had ben calculated that $60,000,-
000 left Ireland every year for various
commodities. Of this sum $25,000,-
000 had been set down as the value of
imported clothes. Half of this money
might be kept in the country, and cal
culating that a quarter of it would go
for wages, and that 100,000 who
nowIRVING had no work would gain a living, al
lowing five to each family. Much might
be done at once if the Irish people
would buy the goods made in their own
land.
Bacon Plant In Boscrea.
The establishment of a bacon factory
in Boscrea on co-operative lines is now
a certainty. Of the $50,000 share capi
tal aimed at over $45,000 has been sub
scribed and in addition all the share
holders have individually signed a guar
antee to supply all the pigs they feed
for a period or five years under a pen
alty of 10 shillings for each pig if other
wise disposed of. The disused military
barracks in Castle street have been- pur-
chased from the war office at a merely
nominal price. The work of fitting up
the factory will be commenced almost
immediately, and it is expected it will
be in full working order by May. The
prime mover all thru has been Eev.
John Cunningham, C. C, and the clergy
of the surrounding parishes who acted
as trustees and gave their.practical sym
pathy and support.
Heads Barnardo Homes.
William Baker, an elder brother of
Sir Augustinte Baker, the late president
of the Irish Incorporated Law society,
has accepted the position of director of
the Barnardo homes in succession to
their famous founder. Mr. Baker, who
is a famous criketer and waB captain of
the Trinity college, Dublin, eleven, has
a large practice at the English bar on
the equity side. It is stated that the
business of the directorship of the Bar
nardo homes will preclude him from ap
pearance in cases in' court, but that he
will be able to attend to his chamber
work.
Gains Memorial Shield.
At this year's Cuairt Cuimhne of the
Fleming companionship held in the ball
room of the Imperial hotel, Cork, the
Fleming memorial shield, which has
been held during the past year by Miss
Mary O'Byrne, M.A., of the Keating
branch of the Gaelic league, was trans
ferred to Peter Macken of the Central
branch. Mr. Macken got first place in
the lower court of romance last year
and this year was the only candidate
who passed the honors examination of
the upper court of romance. He won
the scholarship at the master training
college offered for competition last year
among the Gaelic league teachers in
Dublin, and attended the first sessions
of the college. Up to the present year
all of the highest places in the compan
ionship have been won by Dublin stu
dents, but this year practically all offorgot,
the prizes, with the exception' of the
memorial shield and gold medal have
been carried off by southern students.
VIOLENCE IN BENGAL'S
BOYCOTT OF BRITAIN
Journal Special Service.
Calcutta, Dec. 2.The native boy
cott of British goods in Bengal because
of the recent division of the province
has not yet been suppressed. The sit
uation has developed into excesses
which take the form of assaults upon
Europeans. This appears to be the case
particularly in Calcutta, where the hos
tile attitude of the natives at times
calls for stern repressive measures.
The opinion is gaining ground that
the Bengal government has made a mis
take in adopting a lenient policy to
wards the leaders of the boycott.
TIBETAN BOOKS ARE

Journal Special Service.
London/ Dec. 2.Seven large eases
are littering the library corridors at the
India office. They contain a valuable
collection of manuscripts and speci
mens of printing brought away from
Tibet by the recent expedition. The
collection was made by purchase for
the Indian government by Colonel Wad
dell. The Tibetans learned the art of
block printing from the Chinese cen
turies ago, and the books brought by
Colonel Waddell are nearly all in this
time, and furnish fine examples of the
Buddhist scriptures. Specimens are be
ing sent to the University of Calcutta,
the University of Cambridge and Ox

NUTS NOW FORM
A STAPLE DIET
Meat Eaters*- and Vegetarians
Oast in the Shadow by Those
of New Oult.
New York Herald Special Service.
London, Dec. 2.Fletcherism and veg.
etarianism, one meaning the chewing of
meat and the other the eschewing of it,
have done much to cause the butcher to
grumble, but the latest cult of the well
to-do, whose digestion' has been im
paired by too many dinners, is quite
enough to drive the worthy purveyor of
meat frantic with rage. Nuts now form
the staple diet of many people, who
find that a French chef is superfloua.
Even the festive vegetable and cutlet
is considered inadequate for the pur
poses of the advanced diner.
"Lord Charles Beresford," says Van
ity Fair, "has for
someCharlesbeen
vegetarian1
time a
and now Lad Beres
ford hate adopted the same form of diet
and lives principally on nuts. The earl
of Buchan and Neville Lytton are also
among the recent recruits."
The nuts are served hot or cold and
constitute the principal course at many
a lordly mansion nowadays. If the un
employed only knew,'' said a nutty con
vert to an Express reporter, "they
could live luxuriously on two or three
pence a day on the finest food in the
world and it could be varied so much
that there would be no monotony of
dishes."
A booklet by Sir W. E. Cooper, en
titled "Errors in Eating," gives some
curious figures, purporting to show the
difference in the nutriment contained
in nuts as compared with flesh foods.
Here are some nuts:
Total nutriment in chestnuts, 89.8 per
cent walnuts, 88.2 filberts, 59.5 brazil
nuts, 94 cocoanuts, 50 pine kernels,
95.5 almo'B.'ds, 87.3.
Flesh foods: Lean beef, 28 per cent
veal, 29 mutton, medium, 34.8 fat
pork, 61 venison, 22.7 chicken, 32.31
whitefish or sole, 28.8.
PORTRAIT
WHISTLER'S BEST
Picture Will be. Center of Inter-,
est in Sale of Actor's
Property.
New York Herald Sjjeolal Service.
London, Dec. 1.The supreme mo
ment of what promises to be the most
interesting sale at Christie's in the pres
ent year, that of the late Sir Henry Irv
ing's property, will have arrived when
Whistler's superb portrait of the great
actor in the part of King Philip II. of
Spain, will appear on* the easel.
The sale will be teeming with interest
from beginning to end. There is
scarcely a piece in the collection, the
sale of which will occupy a week in the
middle of December, that has not some
historical interest, or some intimate per
sonal association with the life of Eng
land's greatest actor. The canvas has
a commanding interest as of Whistler's
finests creations, quite apart from the
more or less sentimental reasons, which
will help to swell its price.
In ^connection with this portrait and
with the personalities of the equally dis
tinguished artist and sitter, atr amusing
incident is related by Haldane MacFafi
in his recently published delightful me
moir of Sir Henry Irving. The scene
was the room in the Lyceum theater in
which Sir Henry used to give his faping
mous beefsteak suppers on Saturday
nights, gathering rou'n^d him most of the
brilliant wits of the time. The por
trait adorned one of the walls of thebirth,
supper room and its creator, was one[to
evening among the convivial guests.
Whistler and Irving.
"Now," to quote Mr. MacFall,
"Whistler was the life of the party,
unless by some misfortune one of hisI
own pictures hung upon the walls, when
he would ohatter nothing but Whistler
until the end of the evening. Finding
himself in the same room with his mas
terpiece, he talked of nothing else and
would talk of nothing else, until every
one grew weary of it. Whistler grew
nettled, got to swearing and poured
forth his theories that the likeness did
not matter, it was a masterpiece in
color that all in all, the face was
oftion"
not more importance than the back
ground. One day the sitter would be
but the masterpiece would re
main and the name of the artist endure.
Now that Philip of Spain was a master
piece and the painter of it was a master
and a monstrous clever fellow, he would
like to have known him/
Irving smiled his enigmatic smile.
"Hein! Yes, this is accounted a fine
portrait of me, in part," said he "inreprint
deed, I so account it, butI'd forgot
who painted it."
Among Masterpieces.
The picture had not long been on
view at the Whistler memorial exhibi
tion at the new gallery when it shared
chief honors with "Carlyle," "My
Mother" and "Little Miss Alexander."
The former two are state property. The
latter is a treasured family possession,
and is not likely that so important an
example from an American master's
brush will ever come into the market
again. The price is sure to run into
many thousands.
PARIS ALL TORN UP
NEW YORKERS HAPPY
New York Herald Special Service.
Paris, Dec. 2.The weather in Paris
has been such as all old Parisians ex
pect at this time of the yeara medley
rain, fog, mist, warm winds and
dirty streets.
There was just one fine day when the
sun shone brilliantly and as if by magic
the Champs Elysees and parks soon
filled with rollicking children and their

The next day it rained harder than
ever.
Old-timers say they never saw the
city so torn up and desolate since 1900,
so the New York visitors here feel
quite at home. The subway is still
building, but now the excavators have
struck and the dirt piles encumbering
the streets remain untouched.

London, Dec. 2.Business in the Lon

several reasons which might explain
this, but in any ease the reason will

and much is expected from it.
Baroness von Hutten, the talented

which will be the sequel to "Pam."
'Baroness von Hutten is an American by

Dr. Nansen will bring some literary
work with him when he comes to Lon

by Alston Bivers.
At Christmas, 1819, nearly a century
ago, Wordsworth presented Lady Mary
Lowther with ,a light volume of "verse
in manuscript. It consisted largely of
poems by Countess Winchelsea, but
there also were pieces from Cowper,
Pope, Shakspere and other masters. A
of this quaint anthology is
just appearing from the Oxford uni
versity press. Wordsworth wrote a
dedicatory sonnet and that also is given
in the volume.
DANCING PBOFESSORS

New York Herald Special Service.
Paris, Dec. 2.Foreign ministers of
dancing and deportment met'in Paris
today to discuss dancing, fashion, breed
ing, deportment and everything relat
ing thereto.
Mr. Bobertson, one of the British

Edward had accepted the dedication of
a clance called La Pavane Mondaine
and it was decided to send to the king
an address of admiration.
During the debate which followed
on the respective merits of the frock
coat and evening dress, the president
of the congress expressed the opinion
that it was a lucky thing for society
that professors of dancing and deport
ment were ever on the watch, otherwise
Paris soon would lose its reputation
for good "taste. The members heartily
agreed with this view, and passed a
resolution that frock coats be banished
from marriage, ceremonies.

OF JEALOUS SPITE
Accused -of TaMng Brooch at

New York Herald Special Service.
London, Dec. 2 Caxton Hall was the
scene of an interesting social event
Wednesday when the Princess Lowen
stein Wortheim opened the annual
Lovers' bazaar. The dowager duchess of
Newcastle had two stalls and a lot of
pretty helpers and the most youthful
member of the peerage, the dnfant
Marquis of Donegal, was there in a
white hat and pelisse, grasping a woolly
dog closely to his heart. The presi
dents of the stalls included the Count
ess of Oxford, Lady Ada Fitzwilliam,
the Countess of Seaford, the dowager
Countess of Portsmouth, Lady Wind
sor and Lady Paget.
A strange case, the first scene of
which took place in the Lovers' bazaar
and in which a baroness and a famous
court pianist were involved, quite out
did the bazaar in social interest and
subject for talk. It was heard in the
Westminster police court the day after
bazaar, opened., Baroness Camille
von Perglass and Mrs. Eliza Colenutt,
who are neighbors in the Queen's road,
St. Johns Wood, were charged with
stealing and receiving a trumpery six
penny brooch on sale at the bazaar.
As Seen by Detective.
The story as told by Detective Ber
rett, who was on duty at the bazaar
on Tuesday evening, was that in con
of a statement made to him,cated
observation was kept on the baroness,
who was helping at the oriental stall.
The baroness, who was recognized as a
helper, was wearing a badge and went
round the bazaar offering small articles
for sale from a tray. In the corner of
the room she met Mrs. Colenutt and
handed her a small brooch from the
tray. Mrs. Colenutt held the brooch
by her side without looking at it and
pocketed it without making any pay
ment. The two women then walked
towards the oriental stall and the
baroness Was called, into an office by
the detective, who asked Mrs. Cole
nutt why she had received the brooch
without payment. She answered: I
did receive it. She gave it to me, but
I don't know why."
What the Baroness Said.
When the women were confronted in
the office the baroness said: "It is all
right. I gave it to you like I have
given other things and I should have
paid for it and accounted for it in the
regular way."
Before Horace Smith, the magistrate,
Mr. Conway, counsel for the baroness,
said: "The whole thing has been a
conspiracy engineered by a jealous
back-biting woman, who does not come
here to support the assertion she made.
I will mention the name of the lady
Mme. Janotha.''
The charge against the baroness .was
dismissed.

NEW MYSTERY OF
SEAS UNSOLVED
Ship Lost a Year Ago Is Found
StrandedBut Where
Is Crew.
Journal Special Service.
News Section.
Canton, Dec. 2.The derelict ship
which was found high and dry on a
shoal in the China Sea has been identi
fied as the British steamer Claverdale
which was given up for lost six months
ago, and the Vladivostock Salvage
company hopes to be able tofloatherand
in the spring.
But not one word has ever been
heard of her crew, nor can any trace
of them be discovered. The Claverdale
was commanded by a Cardigan man
and of ber total crew of twenty-seven
all but two were British. While it is
possible that they went ashore it is
more likely that the ship was boarded
by Manchurian pirates and that they
were thrown overboard.
The Claverdale is a fine ship of 4,000
tons, 330 feet long. Eighteen months
ago, during the war, she was cruising
in eastern waters. In October, 104,
she called at Hongkong for orders and
found awaiting her a charter to con
vey coal to Vladivostock, which was
supposed to be a blockaded port. The
cruise was expected to last six months
and the owners agreed to give every
body on board double wages for
thesleepless
period.
Six months passed. No news was
heard of the vessel and the under
writers paid on a total loss. On the
strength of this the owners communi
as far as possible with the rela
tives of the crew, and paid them the
amount. due each man for wages, to
gether with a bonus. equivalent to a
month's wages, and compensation for
the loss of property, that is to say per
sonal belongings amounting in one case
to as much as $400.
Finally it was reported that a large
British vessel was ashore on a desolate
point on the Manchurian coast in the
gulf of Tartary, 200 miles north of
Cape Olgi. The salvage company or
ganized an expedition, and they now
report that the ship is the Claverdale,
that she has been plundered of every
thing, that nothing is left giving the
slightest hint as 'to what became of the
crew, and that, except for 500 tons of
coal in the hold, the ship is a bare hull.

INFANT PRODIGY
I TIRES OF KISSES
Boy Violinist Dons Man's Cku-b,

Hair Cut.-
New York Herald Special Service.
London, Dec. 2.There is one infant
prodigy the less in the world, now that
Mischa Elamn, the boy violinist, has
grown' tired of being an infant and sick:
of being, as such, fondled and kissed by
the women admirers of his playing. He
determined to end it, so yesterday he
appeared on the platform of Queen's
hall with closo-cropped hair, and, dis
carding the knickerbockers and sailor
jacket of infa'n'cy, he was arrayed in
stead in long black dress trousers, white
waistcoat, smoking jacket and a man's
ordinary turndown collar. Mischa, in
fact, ffaced his audience no longer as a
won'der child, but as an artist and a
man.
"It was simply absurd," he told a
reporter of the Express, "for me to go
on wearing knickerbockers and a sailor
suit. It was simply posing. I hate
posing. I am a good enough artist to
stand upon my merits without the aid
of white blouses and black stockin'gs.
I want recognition and appreciation be
cause I am an artist, not because I am a
little boy. I have always hated the idea
cf being an infant prodigy.
I just had my hair cut as short as
possible. Long hair does not help to
get art, it does not help me to play the
violin. People seem to have extraordi
nary ideas. They think I always want
to be eating sweets. I hate sweets.
Again, the ladies want to kiss me. That
makes me furious. When I first come
over to England a gentleman used to
guide me around to all the concerts.
ladies wanted to kiss me. but I pointed
#to the gentleman and said 'He kisses,'
and then I pointed to myself and said
I play.' I tell you,'' Misch exclaimed
vehemently, I won't be an infant
prodigy. It is degrading and absurd."

lungs in later stages. This was
theyoCharcoalofs
most fatal form the disease took. Next
the digestive system was attacked and
this year the nerves, especially those
of the head and face, are sought out
tortured. Chemists report a large
sale of drugs directed toward relieving
these attacks of neuralgia and head
aches. Facial pains are almost unii
versal at the present moment.
I believe.we are In for a repeti
tion of the headaches and neuralgia of
the sixties," said a specialist to thecollect
Daily Mail interviewer. "These fol
lowed the outbreak of influenza in
1849 and 1850. So far as I have been
able to retrace it, the disease pur
sued the same cycle and finished with
an epidemic of neuralgia and head
aches. It was in the sixties that every
woman carried vinagrettes and smell
ing salts, owing to the universal and
'fashionable' headaches."
Another medical man with a general
practice said: "No doubt exists in
my mind that influenza is at the bot
tom of the prevalent neuralgia. Many
paitients have come to me after a
night and, in one case, I have
been visited by a solicitor in the mid
dle of the day. He explained that
he was unfit to do any work. I treat
ed the neuralgia locally by spraying
a volatile fluid upon the parts af
fected. This caused intense cold and
immediate relief. The solicitor, exion
hausted by sleeplessness and pain, fell
asleep in my consulting room.
"The curious point about these re
curring phases of influienza is that
each is accompanied by different tem
peratures, the first by 105 degrees,
the second, a stomachic variety, by 103
degrees, and the latest or neuralgic, by
101 degrees."
"We are becoming immune to at
tacks of influenza," said a third au
thority. "About 90 per cent of the
population of the country must, have
had it at one time or another, for it
is the most infectious disease imag
inable. Our blood has gradually form
ed a toxin or fluid which kills the
germs,' and this is so far perfect in
its efficiency that manifestations of
the disease are becoming less and less
severe.'
Influ-nenralgia, accompanied by a
relatively low temperature, is its latest
form. After persisting for a season
or two influenza will probably dis
appear to return when the immune
population have died out, thirty, forty
or fifty years hence."
London^ Dec. 2.A sweeping on
slaught on English musical composers
and English actors, delivered by Sir
Edward Elgar, ito the course of his
lecture as professor of music at the
Birmingham university, has aroused in
tense indignation in the profession. He
describes the latter as for the post part
dressed up dolls and dummies. Of con
ductors he said England had so far pro
duced only one^ Henry J. Wood, who
was a giant. There were, he declared,
many composer conductors, mere pedan
tic, mechanical, respectable men, who
would be equally successful as school
masters, or if they must keep time for
others, would figure that usually as
timekeeper in a factory yardr These, he
said, were men who treated orchestral
music as if it were a problem in Euclid
and thrashed it out without sympathy,
love or hate.
Dramatic instinct also was wanting
and he accounted for this by the fact
that there was no real dramatic stage
in England.
"In the whole rants of the theatri
cal profession," said Sir Edward,
"there were enough good actors and
actresses to cast one drama properly
no more. They were mostly dressed-up
dolls and dummies who filled the stage.
Englishmen were content to have one
good actor and actress in a play and as
to the rest the less said the better." $fJ
Sir Edward said that English orches
tral players were the best in the world,
but English soloists did not shine on
string instruments. "England," he
said,'' had still too many brainless sing
ers and the teaching in schools had been
unable to raise the standard.*'
Several leading actor-managers in
LoWdon, on being approached for views
on Dr. Elgar's pronouncement, declined
to be brought into the controversy or^l
allow their names to be quoted as $x-:.$j
pressing any opinion, altho they un-?|
doubtedly are very angry. Their opin
ion, however, was that Dr. Elgar was
not a man* competent to discuss thei^l
matter.
"Perhaps," said one, "he had more
of a desire to say something sensational
than something true."
Sir Charles Wyndham replied that
it is not for actors or actresses to reply
to Sir Edward. "We are people to be
criticized we cannot appraise our own
