ENGLAND STIRRED
RUSSIANS DETAIN 1RITISH MAIL
8TEAMER8 THREE HOURS
GERMAN AND ENGLISH PRESS INDIGNANT
Passage of Volunteer Fleet Through
Dardanolleo May Cause Internation
al Interference Japan 8orry?That
Other Nations May Take a Hand
LONDON: The Dally Mail's Aden
correspondent says that the British
'steamers Woodcock and Dalmatia
wore held up by the Russians in the
lied Sea and detained for three hours.
The correspondent says that the
captain of the Russian volunteer
l'loct steamer St. Petersburg ha3 no
tified the British residents nt Aden
to wire the British consuls at Suez
nnd Port Said that he would seize
any British steamer bound for the
Far East if the contents of th'elr
packages were not clearly shown on
their manifests, according to inter
national law.
Too Daily Mail's St. Petersburg cor
respondent says that two more steam
ers of the Russian volunteer fleot'now
at Odessa have received confidential
orders to leave this week for the Red
Sea and to seize British vessels which
are alleged to be carrying contraband
of war.
ADEN: The British steamer Persia
was forcibly detained for an hour in
the Red 8ea by the Russian volunteer
fleet steamer Smolensk, which trans
ferred to the Persia a portion of the
Japanese mails seized on the North
German Lloyd steamer Prinz Hc.inrich
July 15.
The Smolensk confiscated two bags
of the Prinz Heiurich's mail destined
for Nagasaki.
TOKIO: Russia's seizure of mails
in the Red Sen, its interference with
vessels of Germany and England and
its disposition to send embroy .war
ships to the Dardanelles are deplored
by Japan, as threatening to involve
other nations In the war.
The Japanese contend that the regu
lar mails are legally Immune from
confiscation. They demand that St.
Petersburg restrain the Russian ships
in the Red Sea and cease its attempts
to force the sultan to abuse his neu
trality. The Toklo government is
anxious that the world should leave
Russia and Japan to settle their quar
rel unmolested.
BERLIN: The newspapers strike
a sharper note in discussing the seiz
ure of mails from the Prinz Heinrich
and raise a unanimous demand for a
Bpeedy apology. The Tageblatt re
fers to the trial which the Prussian
authorities began on July J 2 at Koen
Igsberg, at the instance of the Russian
government against seven social
democrats accused of smuggling an
archistic literature into Russia, and
says:
"It Is not a bad Jest of history that
this infringement of international law
should strike precisely that power
which unmistakably reveals Itself at
Koenigsberg as to a too subservient
tool of Russian reaction and- police ar
bitrariness."
LONDON: The Suez correspon
dent of the Dally Mall, under date of
July 19 says:
"The German steamer Sambla, It Is
Ftated, has been seized by the Rus
sians and is expected here within a
day or two."
The Constantinople correspondent
of the Daily Mail In a dispatch dated
July 18, says:
"A Russian cruiser has just passed
through from Odessa with several
guns covered with canvas on her
dqek. She also caroled torpclo
tubes. "
RITI8H NATION AROUSED
Very Bitter Feeling Against Russia on
Account of Piratical Attacks
LONDON: The Associated Press
Interviewed many prominent persons
connected In close touch with the gov
ernment relative to the solzure of
British vessels by steamers of the
Russian volunteer fleet in the Red
Sea. As a result of theso inquiries
there is shown to bo a remarkable
hostility against Russia, of the bit
terness and strength almost without
precedent since the Crimean war,
!Even the most conservative, who have
been in tho service of the government
for many years and who openly de
plored the haste with which they
thought Groat Britain had plunged,
into the Transvaal war, now frankly
declare for a policy of reprisal against
what is regarded here as Russf.i's vio
lation of treatios and her piratical at
tack on British commerce.
The war like tone of such papers as
tho Times, tho Standard, tho Morning
Post and the Daily Telegraph, which
in national crisis heretofore almost in
variably have advised caution, has
had its Inevitable effect. There has
been stirred up a storm of indignation
among all classes in the United King
dom, the strength of which the gov
ernment itself can scarcely gaugo.
These who deplore the outbreak of
the war between Japan nnd Russia
and insisted 'publicly and privately
that Great Britain, suffering finan
cially after her South African experi
ence, must not, at all costs, be drawn
into the far eastern 'struggle, arc now
among the most outspoken c,oniplons
of a physical force that wi. jvent
the repetition of the Malacco incident
in the Red sea.

"Only the last chapter," replied doaT
girl the second. "I wonder how it begins?"
THE WOMAN'S CORNER
TOPICS PERTAINING TO BOTH
KITCHEN AND BOUDOIft.
Plaited Bolero an Attractive Costume
Fancy Blouse Waist Belt an Im
portant Accessory to the Summer
Wardrobe.
Belts and Girdles.
The belt Is one of the most Impor
tant accessories In tho summer ward
robe. Kid reigns supremo for outdoor
wear, but the deep, 1830 girdles of
heavy moire antique or tri-shaded soft
Loulslne ribbon are the correct things
for setting on tho fluffy frock, with Its
frills and flounces.
There was a time when woman
thought ono belt a season all that was
necessary. Times havo changed, and
now she must havo at least a dozen
leather and silk belts to be at all Aell
strapped together.
The most chic kid belts are six
inches in widtli and are finished In
the back with three scallops and three
flat brass buttons of not oxtrome size.
The fastening may bo a brass buckle,
eight inches long, with long, sharp
prongs piercing tho kid. The buckle
alone costs 4.
The simplest while swlss or dimity
gown can be made to look really hand
some with the aii of a stunning white
moire girdle, especially if a half dozen
imported buttons of the kind that puts
aomo jewels to shame arc employed
in Its construction.
Intended to hold the sash ribbon firm
ly. It is placed in the center of the
back and tho girdlo adjusts Itself In
uuiuiai ium: iiuiu una poiiu.
Fry Fish in Olive Oil.
Any fish' fried In olive oil will be
found more delicious than If either
butter or lard has been employed.
However, nono but the ry best Im
ported oil should be ukocI, nnd it
should bo allowed to come to a "blue
heat" before the fish is put In. This
can bo tested by throwing in little
pieces of bread with the crust re
moved. If they bocome a golden
brown while one counts ten the oil is
about nt tho right temporature. Use
sufllclcnt to float the fish, as it is one
oi the paradoxes of tho kitchen that
the more greaso used In frying, lh
less grof v will be tho article fried.
Plaited Bolero.
Jaunty little
Jackets of all
sorts aro to be
notod among the
smartest and lat
est models, but no
one of them all is
m o r o attractive
than the plaited
bolero with wide
sleeves of elbow
length. This very
excellent example
is made of taffeta
and trimmed with silk braid, but is
adapted to all soasonablo materials,
while tho trimming can bo varied
again and again, and when like l the
entire stole and collar can bo of lace
or applique, or various other devices
can be employed for further elaborat
ing the design.
The bolero consists of fronts, back
and sleeves. The back is laid in a
broad box plait at the centre, with out
ward turning plaits at each side and
the fronts In outward turning plaits
for their entire width. These plaita
and the outermost ones extend over
the armseye seams, so giving the
broad shoulder line. The sleeves are
in bell shape and box plaited, falling
loosely over the full ones of the fash
ionable waist. At the neck is a collar
with stole endB, which is applied over
the jacket on indicated lines.
The quantity 'of material required
for the medium size is 4 yards 21
inches wide, 3 yards 27 inches wide
or 2 yards 44 inches wide, with 6
yards of braid to trim as illustrated
Just a Hint. y
A novelty veiling, which Is at
tractive because of the odd combina
tion, has royal blue and grass green
designs on a navy blue foundation.
Each figure is made up in equal parts
of the two shados, the pattern being
an oval. The edge is neatly finished
with an inch wide hem.
All sorts of fabric and silk gloves
are. on the market, the coolest of all
being the open meshed silk. They
will stand very hard wear and are of
fered in a variety oL stylos. For
driving, meshed silk with soft leather
palms are sold. These are the proper
wear for golf If any gloves at all are
required.
Nothing much easier has yet been
devised for. the draping of a girdle
than the- latest former on the market.
This is simply a narrow blade of
steel, some four Indies in length. At
either end are tiny teetll ind slides
