AN ANARCHIST COUNT
THE HEAD 'OF THE REPTILE BROOD IN ENGLAND. And Probably the Bloving Spirit of tna International Society Is the Italian afalatesta Did He Plot McKinley. Death T Perhaps the most dangerous anarch ist in the world today is Krrico Mala testa, whose address is now London. There is no reason to suppose, writes a correspondent of the' New York Press, that this genuine Italian count, who apparently earns a modest living in London by mending bicycles and by doing odd jobs of plumbing and me chanical tinkering, occupies a much more important position than has been generally assigned to him and knows considerably more than Emma Gold man about the murder of President McKinley. Under Police Surveillance. Malatesta is considered by the de partment of criminal investigation at Scotland Yard to be the real leader of the organized anarchists in England, a band numbering between 2,000 and 1,000 members. He is known also to be in close touch with the anarchist organizations in America, France and Italy, and he is suspected by the Lon Scn police of being t-e actu 1 heal and moving spirit of the international af filiations of anarchists. He has a few intimate friends here outside of 'an archistic circles or outside of the in ner circles, at least and from talks with some of these I gather that they fully believe Malatesta to be the an archist director "general. He is not only watched continually by the police today, but any one who undertakes to see him is followed. Since he settled in London four years ago he has been so cautious that no definite charge of inciting to violence could be brought against him. Slalatesta Italian Career. The facts concerning this Italian no bleman, born to wealth and title, who don detectives and -oy Italian spies, his letters were opened, all sorts ol traps were laid for him, but nothing could be found that definitely con nected him with the crime. Hard to Catch HI re in the same way detectives did their best to connect him with tne murder of the Empress of Austria. - He was known to have been in touch with herj si.-.yer, but there was nothing to prove that Malatesta had planned this crime from his little back room in Isling ton. . . . Did Errico Malatesta riot the death of President Kcl-inley? It is safe to sa.r that no document will ever be found to prove it. But this soft-spoken anarchist seems to have an es pecial grudge against the conditions -a America, apparently becaut i of the number of rich men there. He de clared recently to one of my inform ants that there were more anarchists in America .today than in any other country in the world, and that the number would increase rteadily. He ranted bitterly about oppression there. He was especially solicitous about the Filipinos, atd said . that Fresident McKinley was as m ch an imperialist as any European monarch. "STAGGERS HUMANITY.' ERRICO MALATESTA. (its in a wretched little back room in London, suspected of weaving vast plots while detectives representing at least four nations lurk outside watch ing in vain for some clew on which to hold him, are more strange and dra matic than any of the fiction that has been written about him. Malatesta is his own name and his family is one of the oldest and most respected in Italy today. As the eldest son he in herited the title of count and would have come into considerable property if his family had not disowned him on account of his revolutionary tenden cies. He has a brother, Henry, who is in the public service in Italy today. Malatesta was intended by his father to be a scientist, end after an excellent education under tutors was sent to Milan University to prepare for the study of medicine. He was a turbulent, headstrong youth, and soon became the leader of the more restless spirits at the university. Before he bad time to graduate he was arrested as the leader of a revolutionary move ment, and although his people man aged to get him out of jail, they in formed him that henceforth they would have nothing to do with him, unless he changed his views about the iniquity of all forms of government. This Malatesta promptly refused to do, and was invited by the family to go and be hanged. He plunged into all sorts of plots against the Italian government after that, and for his complicity in the - riots of 1S93 was imprisoned again. After his release he went to America. He seems to have spent most of his time there in quiet conferences with anarchist leaders. Emma Goldman and Johann Most were his intimates. Four years ago he came to London and has since lived in a saualid district in the North End known as Islington. Malatesta's Work Shop. Malatesta's shop Is a bare little place with one or two broken bicycles about, odds and ends of leaj pipe and a few old gas meters. He is a keen student of chemistry and electricity and is said to have one or two electri cal inventions that would have brought him money if he had not been opposed to the idea of patents. If he had not been so busy promoting' an archy he might have been as useful a citizen as his fellow countryman. Marconi. To all seeming he is one of the most quiet, mild and peaceable of men. He is known to have expelled ! from authority among London an- archists one or two men who talked too violently." j Just before King Humbert, of Italy. was slain Malatesta disappeared from London and turned up in Italy, al though the police there didn't know of It then. He was back in London by the time Bresci Lad fired his fatal shot. Malatesta, of course, disavowed all knowledge of this deed, but had to admit that he was well acquainted with Bresci, for the fact was gener ally known. H was watched by Lon- Krarer'i Historic Pledge Relative u the Boer War Pally Redeemed. Evidences are accumulating on ev ery hand, writes a London correspon dent, of a great wave of public alarm at the incalculable danger to the em pire arising from the paralysis which has overtaken England in her attempt to subdue or exterminate the Boers. There is fierce public indignation at the inconceivable levity and ignorance with which the enterprise was begun and the criminal stupidity with which it has been conducted. The opening of the third year's campaign is signalized by the publi cation in both jingo and the anti-war press of retrospects of the govern ment's war, the record fully justifying the gloomiest apprehensions. It was es timated that the cost of the war would be $50,000,000 with a field force of 47,000 men, which parliament was as sured would complete the conquest of the republics in . three months. Today, when prospect of conquest was never less certain, it has cost $700,000,000, besides 18,000 lives, the aggregate of casualties being 75,000. Since Lord Roberts declared the war over on the eve of the general elec tion a year ago it has cost $350,000, 000 and 8,000 lives. The total number of casualties within that period is 27r000. j The proclaiming of martial law in . Cape Colony is the most desperate . venture yet made by the British. It is known here that tie Cape premier warned both the imperial government and Lord Kitchener that it inevitablj would mean the ultimate loss of South Africa, but the government gave Lord Kitchener absolute discretion and he, rendered reckless by the hopeless en tanglements of the desperate situa tion, refused to listen to reason and in sisted on having his Trill obeyed. An iron curtain of rigorous military cen sorship has now been drawn over th South African conflagration. St. Jacobs Oil for Chest-Colds. Bron chitis, Croup and Plevlsy. An outward application for bron chial difficulties . is many times far more effective than syrups, cough mix ture, cod liver oil, &c, simply because It penetrates through to the direct cause, which is, as a rule, an accumu lation of matter or growth tightly ad hered to the bronchial tubes. St. Jacobs Oil, possessing as it does those wonderful penetrating powers, enables it to loosen these adhesions and to induce free expectoration. Cases have been known where expectorations have been examined after St. Jacobs Oil has been applied, and the exact formation was clearly shown, where the adhesions had been removed or pulled off the bronchial tubes. All ir ritation of the delicate mucous mem brane of the bronchss is quickly re moved by the healing and soothing properties of St.- Jacobs OiL In cases of croop and whooping cough in chil dren St. Jacobs Oil will be found su perior to any other remedy.

The British Parliament ia gov erned as to its etiquette by an unwrit ten code of laws which only the most cbanuoned Liberals or Irish meniDnrs ever violate and which a fine, crusted ' old Conservative, "with a stake in the country, sir," woull rather suffer tor ture than infringe. Probably the most singular rule is that which prohibits a member of the House of Commons from raising both his feet from the floor at the same time. He can wave one foot wildly in the air if he wants to, but the other must rest on the floor. This rule, however, does not apply to members "who sit on the front benches. For some unexplained rea son they are allowed the privilege of doing what they like with their feet (;reat Power of FttogL Several cases of the great power ex ercised by growing fungi are given by an English paper. Many years ago, it says, Basingstoke was paved and some time afterward the pavement was found to be uneven; this increased, un til some of the heaviest stones were completely lifted out of place by the growth of enormous fungi underneath. One of these paving stones was twenty two inches by twenty-one and weighed eighty-three pounds. Dr. M. C. Cooke had a similar incident brought under his notice a large kitchen hearthstone being forced out of its bed by the growth of a fungus. Sir Joseph Banks relates a still more startling occur rence. A cask of wine leaked, and after a time a fungus grew from the leakage, finally filling the cellar and lifting the cask to the ceiling. The Tobacco Industry In Franco. The tobacco sold in France annuall) aggregates to the state about $79,137, 137. The expense to the state in buy ing raw material, labor, freight, etc., is $14,535,324. leaving the very hand some profit of S64.601.813. The state factories use 59,026,325 pounds of do mestic tobacco and 33,075,000 pounds of imported leaf. Although tobacco is extensively grown in France large quantities are imported from the United States, Brazil, Cuba and Java. The great Iron ore companies of Spain have combined under English capital, and fifteen immense and modern blast . furnaces will be built as quickTy as the material can be fur nished. England must have cheap steel to meet American competition, and this is the only way to get it. 0 th adies 0 0 Don't let yovir grocer sell you a. 12 oz. package of lajndry starch for 10 cents when you can. get 16 oz of the very best starch made for the same price.
