" Do you know of any iriovcment among Ameriean houses menaclng, as at one tinie predlrted, the Engllsh priuter and paper trade-T" " No. The oost of composltlon ln Amerlca ls more than dotible what lt ls here; conaequently it does not pay to get lt done ln Amerlca. I have not heard of any dlstuibance ln the paper trade. We antlclpate conslderable dcvelopmenta under tlie act, and have therefore arranged for tTio productlon of a aerles of International copyritfit noveh. The most strlking _gn so far ls the stlmulatlng of prlres asked by author* on both sides, but this wlll flnd Its level qukkly enough.

Chatto ?fc Wlndus's manager said: ''Little altera tlon ls yet poUeeable ln the arrangement _ of tho Angh. Ameriean publlshers. Ameriean publl.h ers are, perhaps, sho.vlng greuter activlty ln prodticlng the works of Ameriean authors, and In olfcrlng stereotj-pe ptates of micI. works for BBBB In tlie Engllsh market.

SUDDEN DEATH OK AN ELEVATED ROAD. TWO STOIUES AEOLT A FATAL ACCIDKNT AT E--I1T.'MNTH-fT. AND THIRD-AVE. Just how Martin Bierman, a cigarmakrr, came to Ite crushed into atonia yesterday under tlie whcels of a Thlrd-ave. elcvated railroad train may never positively bc known. Tliere are two storics of his terrible death. The liret of t*\EBt, told by the tralnmen, to that he waa helplessly tlrunk and fell on the rails. The wcond put forth by his friends? none of whom was with him at the time, aays that Bierman, who lived with his wile and ohildren at No. 191 East, Eight.y-_fventh.8_, got into a quarrel with a gate nian just as he __? about to leave the train at Eighty-ninth-st.J thftt Tie was hrutally beaten, pushcil off the car, and fell between the platform and the train. Tlie ticket-chopper who was on duty when Bierman met his death mystcriously disappoared immeVliatcly after the fatality, and could pot be found. The only other duscoveral.le witnesses to the death are Daniel J. Tneker, the enginecrj and John Carroll, the condu.t~ir of the train. Tticker ia now a prisouer pending an in vestigation of the faotii by tlie poliee of tho Twenty-eeventh Precinct. Ihis ia the etory told by Tucker and corrobo rated hy Carroll. At 1 'Bt yesterday afternoon a train consistlng of flve cars and drawn by motor No. 95 rolled Into the Eighty-ninth-st. titation on ite journey to South Ferry. At that moment there were scarcely more than a dozen people on the platform. One of these w,_s a fairly well dicssed man, apparently about thlrty-?_?__*- years old. He stood at the extretne edge of the plat? form, about thiny feet from the guard rail at the northern end. The man hnd evidently been drinking. Witli c:ieh movement of his body hc stni-trercd or swayed to and fro until his body I .ent well over tlie downtown traek. As tlie _____ of. tl.e euginc passed tl.e tippcr end of the plat? form, Tu.-j.er BBW tliat the traek was perfeetly clcar. Jn tlie satuo instant. his eye f' 11 upon tl.e man standing on tlu. edge of the platform, aud now perfeetly raotionlcs* and en-et. Tho engiiic was within si\ ***** ot the man, when, atnid cries of liorror from the byskindors, he wan BBBB to lun-li heavily forward, and, thlOWi-g liis arms almve hfl head, in a wild etrort to rc g;iin hii balanee, f.-ill prone. aeross tlie K_Bta_t_g steel rails of the tra.-k. ( Then tln- wlieels -tiink him, und he was eaught up, lieaten down, ar.d tom linil. froni linlb, as the engiiN dn.vc liitn lieforc it along tlie rails to the end of tlie platform. When tlie fnuiments of tho body had been pieked up it W_B lound that. the li:iek of tlie liead had U-.-n torn oil, u.nd that tln- k|8 had been dnig.ed iiway froni tlie trutik. 'Ihe bo.lv W_8 t;iUt-ii to tlu- l-.ast Eighty-eigli_i.it. poliee atation, ti.-re to uwait the aettaa af the Coroaar. Hiermnn's i-'Iativos indignantly deny tliat he M~M diaak, or that. his death wiis due to aei-i ilt-nt. They say that he had boc.n to Iliirl.-ui OB liiisiness and was returniiw to his lu.tiie. He woiiid ..rdinarily leav.- tlu- trniii at Eighty-nintli? st., whieh is near where ta lived. 'I heir ass-r tion, taaed apparently on siinple liel.f, that I.e was pushed oif tl.e traiu aml thus fell under it is tu.t supported by any tangible eviilenee, and ar iir.isent there is no reason to doubt the truth .f i ueken. story.

And yet the islands are still commcrcially im portant, aml every B-iuare foot of their wondor lul Hoil suggests possibilities of W4*alth inuoh .reater than any that have lreen realized.

Hut it ia history that political ilisabilities aro of all others tlie moet diffl cult to get ri.l of, and the kinds that per* plex and trouble the** islands are paralyzing. The wondcr Ls, when you come to understand tho matter, not that the islandeia ao eomplish so little, but that, thoy ilo so muoh and laear up 80 ..ourutre.nisly. Expressed in ft nutshellj the preaent trouble is one of foreign government and absentee proprietorship. To the Unite.l States, the islands, especially those over whieh Hritish sovcroignty extends. are of exceptionol interest and value. For many yeara ' their traile has l)oon leaving Europe and -BBT_Bg to the Fnit-'d States. This lias gone so far that they are now, in the wverest OOBBm, conimerclal de pendencies of the American Rcpublio. Thoy live. tuove and have tlieir being in the sunlight ol .merican favor- They perfectly understand thu bituatinn an.l all that it means. Their sentimenta t.award America aro those of the warmest g ratitude and friendship. Of course I speak of tlie ialaml ers, of the mon who actually liv<_. upon tlie iilanda and have their business Interesta flxed ln them. The offlclal people who are sent ont from Englaml a_ a governing body, and the absentee proprtetora who but feehly understand cvoh their own affairs. oons.itut. another class. But it grows weaker and is tolerated with less patieuoc every day. Naturally, the new Anierioan |>ilir.v of Reci? procity is oxciting the mo-t profound concern 6BBHIM these people. To uuderstaml their feeii_u_ an.l it.s signiflcance it is ncccssary to know not only the nature and extont of their commercial relatiorm with America, bat the charactor of their political ponstituttons and th.-ir attitude towar.l Knirlaiul. Tlu. Hritish Islands are St. Kitte, tho VirglB lsles. Nevis, Antigua, Montserrat and Doiiiinioa, constituting tl.e Leeward ftrotip and ,,,iiti*,|erated into 8 sincle colony, with a Gov? ernor 4>ver all, and a Fcdoral Council; St. Lueia. St. Vin.-.-nt, G-BBBdB aud Tobago, constituting tlie Wtfldward Oroap and similarly confo.loratcd : Har ba.loos, Triiiidad and Jamaio, each with a Goverri m.'iit. oi its own. ln pro.iiictioii and interest ideattaal with these islands is the Colony of lirilish (iuii-na, on tlie *sp:mish Main.
