Ivandon. June 22.?There woe tax j
more Interest hore this week In the
doings of the Republican National
Convention In Chicago than In any
tcplo of home or European politics.
All the newtpapors carried big stories
with headlines In big type and fea?
tured the "antics" of Theodore Roose?
velt as truly and characteristically
Yankee. It can't be said that the
treatment of the newspapers here of
the situation was a*, til friendly In
I tone. A note of bitter Irony was
, perceptable In the papers of all shades
! of opinion. All the grotesque, freakish
i and discreditable features of the Chi
', eago gathcrlnK were made to stand
out as promlnonet ly aA possible, and
there was much gloating over the talk
I of bribery among the r.egro delegates
' and the anticipation of bloodshed on
i the floor of the convention hall. Dis?
patcher told how swarmj of police held
down the mobs nnd how detecttves

has saved my life. It is the best medi?
cine on earth, and I would not be without
"frisked" the delegates as they were
entering the hall In order to elimin?
ate any danger of "gun play" while
balloting was going on.
These and oihor products of yellow
Imagination were dished up for the
cynical Joy of suitable Londoners from
early noon tn late at night every day
after the convention opened. All this
was no small humiliation to Americans
have said the
very same words
Here's a Piano That You Can Play
a piano with a cleverly concealed player attachment built within the case that enables you
to play any piece perfectly, no matter how difficult, without devoting many tedious hours
affords a double measure of musical enjoyment. It can be played by every member of the family
with the player attachment?it can be played by the musical student or skilled musician with?
out the attachment thus permitting the maximum of enjoyment to all. There are many pianos
now on the. market with player attachments, but in the following instruments the utmost per?
fection in tone and timbre is attained.
Chickering Henry & S. G. Lindeman Crafts
Holmes & Son Kingsley
One of these delightful instruments in your home will bring you untold happiness and fill
the house with melody. Pianos have ceased to be classed as luxuries?they are almost a necessity
in the average family to-day. If you have children you owe them a musical training but win
not get an instrument that you can all play and enjoy?a player-piano.
Come in?let us demonstrate them and
tell vou about our Pav-As-You-Please Plan.

to act In the Mediterranean or Bteanv
north and aid In home defense socms,
to betray real trepidation. At the |
same time strategists argue that this
Iii a fatal policy, for If the fleet had >
tC move north It probably would be
cut off and annihilated on the way,
and If moved westward It would ar?
rive too late for any usefulness. The!
government's supporters reply that the
I Mediterranean defense may be left to
France as a Britain's ally, but to this;

j Icr, If the shipbuilding programs or
I ihe three powers are completed as
i There Is on undercurrent of talk
to tlie effect that the govern
' ment Is not really any too ear
I ntst In the matter of the home
I rule bill. Some say the government;
! does not really Intend tc send the blllj
I to the House of Lords this session.,
but these crtltcs do not pretent to'
'show how It is posfilbl?. for the gov-;
I crnment to drop the measure. SHU,
others Insist that the bill ran never i
! Ue paused before another general eloc-!
, tion Is held. The ministry compllrat-1
j ed the situation this week by intro-;
duclng the manhood suffrage bill.!
The home rule doubters are In thla j
latter measure preparing for the In-1
evtable electoral contest, since thoj
bill would increase the radical vote by'
abolishing all qualifications for suf-j
frage and simultaneously weaken thej
Conservatives by cutting off all plural;
A'Otlng. But the measure could not aid
the mtnestry In any early day con?
test, as l| would have as much, or I
more, trouble In passing the Lords as]
would the home rule bill itself. The,
Unionists affect great encouragement
from the nar.'ow majority of sixty-1
nine, whereby the exclusion of Orange
and Uuster counties from the opera-1
tion of the home rule bill was defeat-;
ed Tuesday night, but this Is not really,
significant, as It Is far from represent-J
ing any serious defection from the
Liberal bloc. In fact, cn a real call
t>>i a Showdown, In all probability the
government could muster within half
' a dozen of its maximum strength?at
1< Sat for the present.
The council of foreign bondholders.
I following their unanimous acceptance
of th< agreement of Brown Brothers
and the Sotigmans, of New York, In re-;
E?rd to the Nicaragua bonds, express?
ed general appreciation of the at- |
tltude of the United States in forcing1
defaulting Central American republics
10 maintain their financial obligations.
The policy of President Roosevelt and
President Taft in this respect met with
[unanimous approval, "ud is generally
considered the greatest safeguard for,
the maintenance of the Monroe Doc-'
trine. Central America has for years:
past been one of the '.ugbears ofi
.foreign bondholders, but the recent ac-i
complishmants of the United States in
tisyll and San Domingo, according to
the members of the council, Indicates
^ s happy future.
As a result of the continued labor!
troubles on this side of the ocean, tne1
toyage across the Atlantic Is Invested
I with a new sporting interest. Hither-1
t > travelers have known beforehand
' th* ship, the date and the port from
which they were to sail. These points
jare now speculative. At the last mo?
ment the sailing of tho Oceanic was
, canceled this week and her passeng?
ers were put on a train for Liverpool
to catch the Baltic. Th-.; sailing of the
Minneapolis was also canceled. This
I uncertainty is affecting all classes of
trade and endeavor In Great Britain.'
, and business men. bankers and hotel-1
' keepers are finding the inconveniences
; intolerable. There Is onsidrablo ad?
verse cotnmnt as 10 why the govern?
ment does not take strong measures
I 11 maintain the advertised mall sir
! vice. The cancellation of the Oceanic
, does not matter much to New York.|

I to-day, but affect., Chicago adversly, as
i the Oceanlc'a mail Is usually deliver*
[ tu in that city In time to enable Chl
, goana to send answering letters by
the following Saturday's mall for Eu?
rope. With ihe mall geing from this
, side on the Mauretanla they are un-j
] able to do this. Hankers are aUo com?
plaining bitterly, as on drafts for stock]
transactions and cn bills of exchange!
'they will lr?.e at least one or two day's
interest, aa far as New York is con
' Ctrhed, while ther? Is a possibility of
; losing three or four da>s nn Chicago
bills, as the Mauratanla may take the
extreme Southern route and so delay
j her mall ihat It will not be delivered!
in Chicago before the closing of thej
I banks on Saturday.
The unsettled s.iiling of steamers
J lias considerably upset the hotel man?
agers of London. Mr. K reell, manager
or the Kitz. toi?i The Times-Dispatch,
correspondent that they were on two
horns or a dilema. "In the season our!
; rooms ar<" booked up completely," he
? said. "As soon as one parly leaves an-!
; other comes In, and these arrange?
ments are made week., in advance.]
: With these uncertain sailings, how
: ever., people are now holding their
rooms overture while waiting to sail.'
Meantime other people who have en-;
gaged rooms for certain days want to.
? gc into them, Consequently we are]
obliged to cither put out the. occupants
: who intend to sail on n certain date.
? oi disappoint others. Hence the man-'
'i.gtrs are bound to do wrong 'n any.
At the American Consulate The
' Tims*-Dispatch correspondent was
j told that the labor troubles have re-'
j tulted In a dropping 0|f of to to 50
per cent, of shipment from London to
