For some years past, the govern ment had permitted the "Israelites" to celebrate "Passover" on a common but each year a growing number of pilgrims remained behind on what they called "holy ground" until a village of some 350 huts had sprung up. Tne sect forbade anybody to en ter the village, or to recognize any authority except orders from "Jeho vah, the God of Israel," as interpret ed by Enoch the prophet. The government some time ago endeavored to register the settlement but the police were obliged to with draw to avoid bloodshed. Peaceful efforts by the Secretary for Native Affairs and others to in duce the "Israelites" to withdraw failed. They steadfastly refused to go. Finally a force of 800 mounted police moved from Queenstown to de mand the surrender of the village With shouts of "Jehovah says we must fight," 4,000 . natives charged the police with swords and assegais, the women urging on the men with wild religious chants. The police let ' them come .pn until within 30 yards and then fired, with the result stated Thereupon the prophet Enoch sur rendered and the village is to be de molished. The affair has caused some stir in the Cape House of Assembly. Pre mier Smuts declared that in view of the natives' obstinacy, there was no other way to make them understand that they must obey the law. CHARGES CHINESE GIRLS ARE SOLD IN SAN FRANCISCO '- Dqs i Moines, la., June 24. That Chinese slave girl traffic is "going on right under the noses of our city officials" was the statement made by Dr. Charles R. Shepherd of Los An- geles, California, general missionary among the Orientals, a tthe Northern Baptist Convention in this city today. : "I know from personal experience and not from hearsay that this is a fact," he declared, citing the instance of a Chinese girl 16 years old sold in San Francisco for $2700. In speaking of the tongs of the country, Dr. Shepherd said, "These tongs are not only an insult to the churches of America, they are an insult to the great Masonic order. Over the .entryway, of one of the bloodiest and most powerful fighting tongs in America, is a sign 'Bing King Tong, Free Masons.' It mas querades as a Masonic lodge, while it is made up of those who engage in the traffic in Chinese girls, vho labor to frustrate our laws, who plan bloody murder, and pay professional assassins to carry out their plans." The Chinese as a whole, make good citizens, however, Dr Shepherd maintained. The better class among them own their own homes, partici pate in community affairs, and throw themselves into all great national movements, he said. 666cures Malaria, Chills er, Bilious Fever, Colds Grippe, or money refunded.

The week preceding the Der by should have been social gayety ap proaching its height; but the wide spread effects of the coal crisis have put a damper on the round of pleas ures scheduled for this time of the year, and old stagers find it imrd to recall any similar period when so lit tle private entertaining was "done. No society debutantes , are coming to town. Shortage of money has caused many society folk to cancel all their London engagements and to spend the summer as cheaply as pos sible in the country. By the King's desire, courts have been postponed atid hotels and theaters are report ing slumps. There are a number of overseas visitors in London, but "not enough to go round," as one hotel manager put it, and were (it not for the Amer icans who have come over for the polo games, those who have to live out of profits made in the season would be in despair. Dressmakers, tailors and entertain, ment caterers are doing next to noth ing, the reason being that the present period of industrial unrest makes ifc impossible to see a month ahead! Efforts were made to make the Henley Regatta a social success. Henley is always a gay dress pa 'geant. According to the fashion pa pers, the modish colors are yellow and red, with flower and fruit del iigns and with hats trimmed with wreaths of imitation vegetables. The only benefit the coal strike has conferred upon London is the absence of snfoke and fog. The continued clearness of the atmosphere is sur- (prinsing Londoners, who are discov ering views of their city the exist ence of which they hardly suspected. Public health has benefited . very greatly, according to official health 'statistics. There has been an aston ishing decrease in bronchial and pul monary complaints.
