INSURANCE RATE TO
BE CUT BY BOARD
Austin, Tex Jnne 17. The fire rating board at nexi Tuesday's meeting
expects to reduce rates throughout the state, according to authoritative state
ment made thin morning.
This, it ii hoped will partly counteract the sentiment against the law and
probably be the cause of the special sessions merely amending the statute in
stead of repealing It.
Following the call for the special session, the governor's office is now
flooded with mail from all parts of the state, some indorsing the attitude of
me ciecume anu umers asKing xnar certain propositions be made and rccora
mendatlonv sent to the legislature.
San Antonio seeks a commission charter and wants a bill passed to that
end during the session.
Replying to the statement issued by attorney general I.Ightfoot Thursday
rcgarding fire insurance affairs and the rating board, commissioner Hawk
ins, of the Mate insurance and banking department, is preparing a letter this
afternoon setting forth that there is no excuse for open violations of the fire
rating law by any one. He declares Lightfoot is in error in saying that the
board had merely asked a continuance of the custom for six months past.

Chinese Seamen Attempt to
Leave Boat as It Leaves
Port and Lose Lives.
THREE REACH LAND
AND ARE ARRESTED
Philadelphia. Pa., June 1" Mutiny
on board the British steamer Highland
Monarch, outward bound for Auckland,
New Zealand, followed a dash for lib
erty by a dozen members of the Chinese
crew and resulted in the drowning today
of four and the narrow escape of three
others. The men rescued are in the po
lice statian while the remainder of the
mutineers are in ironv aboard the ship.
As the United States immigration
lav3 impose a fine of 500 on the cap
tain of a steamslr.p for every China
man member of his crew that escapes,
the 20 Chinamen aboard were not per
mitted to leave the vessel last night
with the other members of hc crew, all
Englishmen, who were given shore
leave. This angered the Orientals and this
morning one of them asked for a few
hours on shore. Being refused the
Chinaman drew a knife and chased the
! first mate about the ship. He was cap
tured and placed in Irons. An hour later
all the Chinamen made a break for
liberty. A hand to hand fight between
them and the English members of the
crew fallowed, resulting in the Chinese
being forced back on the ship.
The ship then got under way with the
Chinese in the stoke hold firing the
boilers. Suddenly a dozen of them ap
peared on deck, seven leaped overboard
and in the struggle for liberty the men
had to fight a strong tide and four suc
cumbed. The other three managed to reach
shore and the police caught them. They
will be deported.

Great Missionary Confer -
ence Reads Communica -
tion From Catholic Bishop
REPORT ON MATTER
Edinburgh. Scotland. June 17. To
day's features at the world's mission-arj-
conference were the reading of a
letter from monsigr.or BonomeilK Ro
man Catholic bishop at Cremona,
Italy, and the presentation of a report
on "Education in Relation to Chris
tianization of National Life."
The bishop's letter was in response
to an Invitation for him to contribute
a message, the invitation explaining
the purpose of the conference.
The bishop in reply said: "We are
united in a profound" conviction that a
universal religion is necessary and
yiat this must be the Christian reli
gion not a cold and formal religion,
a thing apparent from human life, but
a living force, prvading the human
soul in its essence and various mani
festations. My detire for you is but
to echo Christ's words, which have
resounded through centuries; that there
be one flock and one shepherd."
"Seldom has the Christian church
been called to meet so great an oppor
tunity or to respond to such Immense
and varied neds," says the commission
on "Education in Relation to Christinn
ization of National Life." in its leport.
The commission recommends a wide de
velopment of educational work in con
nection with missionary endeavors, and
warns the churches against the danger
of losing signt of the primarj object
to seek the complete conversion to
Christianity of those who come within
the influence of the work, Instead of
resting content -with lower and subor
dinate end" of education.
In describing th- Influence of mis
sionary work upon the national life
of the peoples to which it has been
carried, the commission reports that a
large proportion of the best moral and
spiritual influence of the missions have
j emanated frcm the schools.
Poner of Education.
I "It is probable," says the report, "that
i the most striking public witness for
! Christianity hitherto borne, speoially in
India, the winess which has most im
pressed even hostile native obe-ervers.
has been the power, which the Christian
missionaries have exhibited by means
of education to raise the lowest classes
the pariahs, or outcasts of the
community. It is not too much to
say that the missionaries have proved
more than any other class a bond of
spiritual fellow-ship betwern foreigners
and native. What ever has been ac
complished in the direction of realizing
the fellowship of humanity and that is
one o.p the greatest of all human en
terprises hns been accomplished by no
class of men so much as by the mis
sionaries. "We desire to put on record our firm
com iction that Christianity, by reason
of its unique message to the world,
has a unique part to play in the work
of education. One of the striking
phenomena of the present hour is the j
world wide recognition of the necessitv '
of the moral, If not also of th ro- j
ligious, element in education." With
due recognition of the many elements j
of truth and value In the non-Christian i
system of religion and etiMCi, we
should nevertheless be faithful not
alone to our religion, but to the facts
of experience if nc did not at this
time reaffirm our conviction that the
education of the world doman.ls f-r
its highest and best development those
elements of truth which are the peculiar
contribution of Christianity to the
forld's thought and life."
The commission reports that a major- J
ity of Its members believe that the
motive of misF-icnary education mav
include the philanthropic desire to pro
mote the jroneral nelfarp of the neonle.
A minority does not agree with this, j
holding that to suggest to Christian
educators the vaguer philanthropic aim
would be to dirpct them upon a path
which their efforts would lose in Intens
ity, and the definite Christian motive
wcild be weakened The commis
sioners all agree, however, that the most
important of all the ends which mis
sionary education ought to set itself
to serve is that of training thoe "uho
are to be the spiritual leaders and teach
ers of the men of their own nation.
"It is the manifest course of wisdom,
the commissioners say, "for the Chris
tian forces of any country to enter
