"The Dickensian" Is the title of a new period
ical which has just appeared in London. The
first number has a hitherto unknown portrait of
Dickens. This publication is to "be the organ
of the Dickens Fellowship. More than two
hundred thousand volumes of Dickens' works
were sold in -island last month.
It Is needless to repeat th* worn phrase about
• prophets In quoting a story told by the English
"Author": "I remember a crushing reply that
I received about a year ags. when, in the lend
ing library of a certain wall known watering
place, I sugrgrested to an acquaintance, again a
l«£y. that she should read a book that I named,
a book by an author whose works are generally
popular. 'What:' she exclaimed, In a tone of
great contempt. 'I fa.l that man's books?
Why, he Jives here!' Xow. 1 have every reason
to believe that this L&dy v =ts by no means sir.
gular In her views, "out that, on the contrary,
there are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of read
ers, men as well as women, who would scorn
the bare idea of reading anything that is written
by any one they happen to be personally ac
quainted with, no matter how excellent the
article or the story may be."
It Is as well rot to go to a novelist for a
condemnatory characterization of a real per
son. A Sydney lawyer has pust recovered as
much as $1,250 from a publication which men
tioned him as having "all the unscrupulousness
of Dodson & Fogg, without the astuteness
ascribed by Dickens to these two legal charac
It Is scarcely necessary to say more of Vol
umes XVin. XIX. XX and XXI. of 'The Phil
ippine Islands" (Cleveland: The Arthur EL Clark
Company), than that they amply maintain the
high standard pet in the earlier volumes already
noticed in our columns. These four cover the
period from 14H7 to 1624. the translated docu
ments, largely official and ail authoritative,
dealing with almost every phase of insulnr his
tory and colonial development. In their dis
cussion of necde.i reforms in administration,
even at that early date, and of the development
of industries and commerce they are often fruit
ful of suggestion profitably applicable to present
conditions, nearly three <enturies later. It is
really a dishearten in 5 reflection, and one not
cr^ditahlo to American scholarship and munifi
cence. th.-»t th!s admirable compilation of simply
invaluable historical material should have met
Wttß so little enmuragpnvir in the country In
mhich. of all ta the world, it should be of most
Interest. We should think that every important
public and academic library and every private
collection which aims at historical fulness would
have regarded a set of tho<^ fine volumes as
Indippensabl". Tet not a tithe of such Institu
tions, we believe, have sought them. It will be
a curious anomaly in the next few years to find
en American publication of lf*O4-'Of» as scarce
and as difficult of a^c^ss as rare prints of cen
turies ago. How. if it had only been an his
torical novel or a bucolic dialect tale!
It is slatod that Si&nora Crlspi is quietly pre
paring to issue, outside the Italian frontier, a
volume of her late husband's memoirs furnished
with an introduction which he wrote during the
closing months of his life. This work, it is
rumored, is divided into three parts, and con
tain?. besides unpublished letters to Mazzini,
Garibaldi, Victor Emmanuel II and Gladstone,
details of Crispins life as a refugee in London
and documents by living men who had relations
with Crispi.
"The Gambler," we are told, is to b» the title
of the forthcoming nove) hy Mrs. Thurston, the
author of 'The Maequerader."
Her husband. Mr. E. T. Thurston Cwho has
dramatized 'The Masq-aerader") is about to pub
lish a book which he calls "The Apple of Eden."
The subject i« that of the celibacy of the Roman
Catholir. clergy.
"Warren Hayings is said to have written to
his wife letters of singular interest and charm.
and these letters, heretofore unpublished, are
poon to be brought out in a volume edited by a
British novelist.
Three piece? which have not until now seen
the light are toctaded in the new edition of Ros
settrs poeme. These are "Dennis Shand: A
Ballad"; a sonnet. "After the French Liberation
of Italy." and another sonnet. "After the Ger
man Subjugation of Frame."
Mr. A Jf. Sullen is now at work on his
"Stratford Town Edition" of Shakespeare in
Stratford itself. He has established an artistic
prirting press, the '"Shakespeare's Head." in
the house which Julius Shaw, the maltster,
leased in l. r »97— the Fame year In which
Shakespeare nought "New Place." two doors
away. The type which Mr. Bullen is using is
tho beautiful original "Old Face" type cut by
William Caslon early in the eighteenth century;
the paper Is English hand made, with the
Shakespeare crest and coat of arms for water
Stratford Itself does not take much interest in
the edition. Apropos of this lack Miss Corelli
tells this anecdote: '• 'You will hardly have
much demand for such an edition of Shake
speare In Stratford.' observed the vicar (himself
a trustee of Shakespeare's birthplace, and there
fore accredited with special interest In all things
Shakespearian) to the smart office boy of the
•Shakespeare's Head Press' the other day.
'Please, sir, we don't work for Stratford,' was
the prompt reply."
No review of R. L. Stevenson's attitude to
women could be complete, says the commen
tator "O. 0.," "without a reference to Mrs. Sit
■* now Mrs. Sidney Colvin, the friend who
bore so large a part in hla development and en
couragement during his transition period. It
was under her influence that he began, for the
first time, to believe In his own powers. During
the most unhappy and unsettled years of his
life he sent her journal letters made up almost
weekly, chronicling his moods and doings while
his letters to his friends in general were sn;u,t>y
and Infrequent. A long time after he wrote to
her from HW-r,s: If I am here and happy 1
know to whom 1 owe It; I know who made mv
waj for me in life, if that were all. and I re

AMERICAN HEATS.— If American meats were
furnished to soldiers In the Philippine Islands the
cost would be doubled, according to n letter seni
to the Senate to-day by Secretary Taft. replying
to a resolution calling for Information. The com
munication inclosfs a report from the commissary
general of the army, giving the total cost of fresh
meat bought for the soldier* in the Philippines for

reorganize and increase the efficiency of the per
sonnel of the fleet of the I'nlted States." The bill
shortens the course at the Naval Academy until
1913 to threo yearn. One year's sea duty after
graduation Is required instead of two. as at present.
The age of midshipmen entering the academy is
fixed fit from fifteen to seventeen years. The bill
creates a "reserve list" on which captains who
have leached the age of sixty years shall be placed.
This age limit is gradually reduced to fifty-five
yenrs. Commanders are put on this list at the age
of fiity-flvft, the age thereafter being reduced to

A Bill Growing Out of Buffalo Bank Scandals
in Preparation.
Albany. Feb. 2.— A measure growing: out of the
scandals in the case of the German Bank, of Buf
falo, is at present under consideration, and will
later be Introduced in the Senate. The hill will
amend the present banking law by making it a
misdemeanor for any officer, director or agent of
any bank to borrow from the bank with which he
Is connected nny sum of money without the consent
and approval of a majority of the board of di
rectors. Under the present law the transaction la
forbidden, but the penalty is a forfeiture of twice
the sum borrowed.
This, of course, absolutely cannot be enforced,
for a man who thus illegally borrows the money!
If he uses It for stock speculation and succeeds,
will return It. and the bank will neither know nor
lose, but if he Is unsuccessful, then he has lost all
the money, and cannot oven replace what he has
taken. His forfeiting twice tho sum to th« State
Is. of course, a manifest impossibility; but when the
offence is made a misdemeanor, with a fine of $500
or an Imprisonment for a year, or both, the penalty
win reach oil cases and will act as a deterrent to
many. I

Mercury Foot Seven Lose, 6 to 1 —
Two Referees Work Well
The Wanderers' Hockey Club defeated the New-
York Athletic Club hockey seven nt St. Nicholas
Rink last night. 6 goals to 1. This l.« the worst
beating the Mercury Foot men have received this
season, for, although they have won only one
game, the games were lost by narrow margins.
Their only point was made by Bullen. after a nice
run down the Ice with Stewart These two men
played well together, and repeatedly became dan
gerous around the Wanderers' goal. The Wander
era played a fast, hard ' game from the start.
Souther. Howard and Carruthers doing particularly
fine work. Horn feck received a bad cut by being
hit by the puck early In the game, which affected
his play throughout the evening.
The two referee, plan suggested In Monday's
Tribune was adopted at last night's came, and
worked well, especially in the second half, when
the men became more accustomed to the new de
parture. Rupert Howard watched the puck and
started the plays, while Mackenzie looked after' the.
men. Both were from the Hockey Cub of New-
Clarke was twice punished, once for striking at
HobUtZ, and the second time for hitting Stewart.
Hunt and Henderson were also ruled off, the for
mer for upsetting Clarke, and the latter for trip
ping Hornfeck.
The Wanderers opened the frame with a hot at
tack on the Athletic Club's goal, Hornfeck and
Clarke making; hard shots. Stewart and Bullen
took the puck by good combinations Into Wanderers'
territory, and the former got a shot which Car
ruthers stopped. Hornfeck at this stage of the
game received the puck on the face, making an
ugly cut, and play was delayed some minutes.
Shortly after his return to the ice Henderson, in
attempting to lift the puck, made a bad fumble, and
Clarke getting the rubber shot the first goal from
the left of the rink. Hornfeck followed this with
another goal a minute later, after dribbling the
puck from the centre of the- rink to within a few
feet of the cage. Bullen made a good effort to
score, but Heyward timed his shot aside and
Stewart's shot Immediately afterward was stopped
by Carruthers. The half ended 2 to 0.
It was fast, hard checking throughout the sec
ond half, and at times rough. Clarke got the first
shot at goal, -which was beautifully stopped by
Williams, and Stewart and Bullen made another
of their runs down the rink, but were unable to
pass the -strong defence of the Wanderers. Car
rubbers, getting the. puck from them, took It the
entire, length of the rink, dodging every one of his
opponents, and shot a goal unassisted. Hardly
half a minute inter he tallied again on a paps from
Clarke was put off when the puck was again
put In play for striking at Hoblitz, and the Mer
cury Foot men struggled hard to score, with only
six men opposed to them. Stewart had an ex
cellent chance for a goal when the rubber was
passed to him by Bullen right In front of the
net, but his shot went wide. Bullen then tried
his hand at it. but with no better, success. South
er, after making two good attempts at goal, both
well stopped by Williams, finally got the rubber
by him after good individual work.
Hunt was ruled off for two minutes for tripping
Clarke, and Henderson followed him for the same
offence against Hornf»ck. This left the New- York
Athletic Club with only five men on the ice, and
while thus handicapped Souther scored from a
scrimmage. Bullen got the next goal, the only
one for his team, after clever combination work
with Stewart. Hardy was the next man to go to
the fence, for two minutes, for tripping Stewart,
and Clarke was put off for the second time for
striking at Stewart. He received only two min
utes, which was too light for his second offence.
Stewart. Bullen and Hoblitz made hard attempts
to add to the score while their side was one man to
the good, but without success, as Heyward stopped
everything that got by Howard and Carruthers.

Xexc-Yorkers Object to Boston Man
agement Meeting To-night.
Leading tennis players of this city are much In
terested in the questions which will come before
the annual meeting of the United States National
Lawn Tennis Association to-night. They regard as
of miner Importance th*> subject of sending ■ chal
lenge to England for the Dwight F. Davis Cup, de
claring they are out for reforms to be carried
through with an active body of officers. Several
of these players have been outspoken in their criti
cism of the failure to send a team to England last
season after the promise had been made to the
visiting Britons.
Again, it Is pointed out that there are more larce
clubs, with a greater membership, In and near this
city than about Boston where tennis government
emanates. Dr. James Dwight, of Boston, president
of the association for many years, has often ex
pressed his desire to be relieved from his duties,
and it Is possible that he may be replaced. For
several years Dr. Dwight's request that another be
made president has been Ignored, and the office be
would gladly relinquish has been forced upon him.
The secretary. Palmer E. Presbrey, has been
criticised because, according to representatives of
tennis interests in this city, it has been often im
possible to get needed information and replies to
Important queries from his office in Boston. To
Richard Stevens, the treasurer, there will probably
be no opposition, as he Is generally regarded as the
best man for the plnc«\
With an active governing body, the majority of
the English tournaments have. it is pointed out, on
entry list of more than one hundred, and the tour
nament at Eastbourne last autumn had the record
breaking entry of 960 competitors. The national
tournament, at Newport, has never reached an
entry list of one hundred, and has usually about
eighty players. The New-Yorkers believe that
some adequate championships should be estab
lished for this city, where, they declare, the sport
is on a better footing than elsewhere In the coun
try. The Bostonians, according to the New-York
er-;, form a close corporation by getting many
proxies from clubs unable to send delegates, and
thus put through any movements which they favor.
It seems likely that the Boston and New-York dele
gates may have a test of strength to-night.
Diavolo Brings Top Price of $860 at
Garden Sale.
This Is the last day of the Fasig-Tipton Com
pany's annual midwinter sale of trotters and light
harness horses at Madison Square Garden. It has
been highly successful, as the grand total will prob
ably foot up to more than 1300,000. This compares
favorably with the Old Glory sale late last fall,
which was a record for recent years, and a standard
by which future sales will be Judged. Yesterday
could he characterised as bargain day. Consign
ments from various owners were sold, and while the
range of prices was low the genera! average was
good, considering the quality of the horses offered.
In the morning and afternoon sessions Diavolo
brought top price of JSfiO. while the average for
eighty-seven head was only a little over $200. Many
the horses, however, were well Bold, and Mr.
*Tipton expressed himself as entirely satisfied.
In the evening session the prices did not im
prove, and not a single horse reached four figures.
In spite of the fact that there were no Direct
Hals or other stars catalogued, the attendance was
quite up to the average of the previous days, and
there was no lack of bidders,
In the course of the day 126 head wore sold, bring
ing a total of 127,850. In the four days 4iS head
were sold, with a total of $234,016.
Ahout 7 o'clock, in the intermission for dinner,
what might have been ■ terious accident was
averted only by the cool, quick work of a driver
who was exercising a horse to sulky. A big bay
horse, which was being exercised to halter, broke
away and galloped about the track at top speed,
threatening to run down the sulky. The driver
turned In his seat and swung his whip in the face
of the runaway, bur this did not prevent him
crashing Into the rear of the sulky, getting one
leg over the axle. The driver, quick to see the sit
uation, grabbed him by the head and pulled up his
own horse at the same time, while the crowd ap
plauded uproariously. In the evening, John Ilen
nessy, the horseman, was knocked down, in front
of the auctioneer's block, by a trotter being shown
at top speed, but he escaped with a had shaking up.
A. J. Forbush.t of Boston, bought Diavolo for
$860, and got a bargain, in the opinion of many
shrewd horsemen. With a mark of 2:')9' 2 and a
trial in 3:06% be is a pacer that will show to ad
vantage on the track, speedway or road. A. J.
Km bush also bought Sister Marion. 2:17*4, for
$;."'•. and will drive her on the road. The late
Robert Bonner paid a big price for her as a two
year-old, but she is now fourteen years old and
was well sold at the price. Edgewood. 2:12* 4 , the
well known matinee horse, aroused some little
competition and was finally knocked down, to a
