Appeal to Canadian Authorities Re-
DHMsf Klondike Mystery.
(CS»;ry light. IQCA. by the Rrentwooa Ctwnrany.)
One of those dramas which furnish the romance
to no many of th* houww" of the Old World arls
' locraov Is «ild to lie at the back of the demand
■which has .lust been made upon th* provincial au
thorities of British Columbia to resume, after the
j sr c.f ten years, the investigation Into the mys
tery surrounding the disappearance of Sir Arthur
Curtis, third baronet of his line, who vanished
j r June. ISS*. with an Indian £ulde while on his
trgy from Ashcroft. on the Canadian Pacific Rail
ypa,* to the Klondike. Six months later Lady
Curtis applied to the courts in London for leave
to pwFurtie .her husband dead. and. although no
definite evidence was ever produced that he was
really dead beyond the fact that he had wandered
s,wsj' from hi? companions and had disappeared
from view without leaving any trace, the decree
pranted. and not lons- afterward Lady Curtis.
•whose only boy. Roger, had thus become fourth
baronet, married Colonel Robert M. Brady, of
rasav n-Ta'. nephew and heir to the bar
onetcy of Sir Francis Brady, and by whom phe
has several children.
The .-•uni? baronet came of age a couple of years
ego. end there Is reason to believe that he is Just
as little satisfied as are other people of the fact
that his father Is really dead. He is not living
•nltJj his mother or stepfather, but is understood
to be on this side of the Atlantic, and it is as
sumed by many that It is he who is the relative,
who has urged the British Columbia authorities to
resume the investigation. The only other remain
jag member -' this house of Curtis is his prand
cacle, Septimus Curtis, now nearly ninety years of
££c. and who is at home in England.
The expedition with which Sir Arthur Curtis was
travelling when he disappeared was commanded by
Koper Pocock. founder of the Legion of Frontiers
men, and ia his book entitled "The Frontiersman,"
published a couple of years air 0 by Gay & Hancock,
in London, he devotes a chapter to this episode"
In his life. He speaks very highly of Sir Arthur
Curtis, whom he refers to under the initial "<"."
and relates how he. being out of sorts, spoke
roughly and brutally to Curtis without any reason.
Taking all The blame upon himself. Pocock de
clares in his book that he gave utterance to words
that could never be withdrawn or forgiven, and
that during the same night Sir Arthur wandered
away • ■••-> the woods and was never seen again. He
relates that for ten days he and hi? party sought
S'.r Arthur without finding any clew, and that
then, their provisions having run out. they were
cbllced to abandon the hopeless quest. Pocock de
scribes In his book how he had considerable dif
ficulty in disposing of the ugly rumors that he
had murdered Curtis, although he certainly did re
gard himself as morally responsible for his death,
trA brines the chapter ;o a conclusion by refer
ring to reports that Sir Arthur had subsequently
Wn seen alive in England. He likewise adds
that he knows nothing positive of the body of the
missing baronet ever having been found.
Another member of the expedition— G. W. Cole—
a veteran miner, likewise expressed the conviction
In the press of Vancouver and elsewhere <r. Can
eda that the baronet was not dead. He declared
that he had heard Sir Arthur say that he meant
to slip away from the expedition, and claims that
Cu-tis told him that when he got to the Klondike
he would change his name. G. W. Cole added
that it was nearly impossible for a man having
■a Indian guide to be lost in the country beyond
ilud River, where Sir Arthur vanished.
One is tempted to ask what motives can have
y-ompted the relative of the missing baronet to
ascertain whether he is Btlll alive. For if that
cnuia -. established, his wife's marriage to Colonel
Robert M. Brady would become, ipso facto, invalid,
and the children born of the union illegitimate.
The object, therefore, is scarcely one that can be
considered a* altogether friendly to Lady Curtis.
It i = said that in the remote regions of North
western Canada are to be found to-day the clews
to rnanv disappearances, as mysteriously as that of
Sir Arthur Curtis, of men bearing well known
B3ni?s once prominent In English life, who have in
consequence of financial troubles, of some un-
Jortunate romance or some scrape of one kind or

Lord Gort. who arrived in New York on Wednes
day last on board the Majestic, is the owner of
East Cowes Castle, familiar to every American
visitor to the Isle of Wight, presenting as it does
a moat attractive picture viewed from the Solent,
rising, with its hatllemented walls. In the midst of
a richly wooded domain. In spite of its medieval
appearance, which is enhanced by the ivy covering
Its walls, it was built only about a hundred years
ago by the well known architect Nash, the protegS
of the prince regent and the designer of the newer
portions of Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace.
as a residence for himself. The Lord Gort of his
day was so delighted with the place that he en
gaged Nash to build a replica of it for him on his
property on the banks of Lough Cooter. at an ex
pense of nearly $500,000. and by a strange turn In
th.» wheels of fortune the castle on Lough Cooter
has long since passed out of the possession of the
Lords Gort, while Mash's own castle at Cowes has
become their principal home.
Lord Gort is the head of the houses of Prendcr-
Kast and of Vereker. The former was founded by
Maurice. Lord of Prendergast, in Pembrokeshire,
who was one of the principal Norman knights asso
ciated with Strongbow, Earl of Pembroke, in the
Invasion of Ireland, and eventually became more
Irish than the Irish, giving up his castle of Pren
dergast. in Wales, to the Knights of St. John of
Jerusalem, and contenting himself with his estates
in the Emerald Isle. His son was one of the signa
tories of Magna Charta ; his grandson. Gerald de
Prendergast, founded the Abbey of Ennlscorthy.
The Prendergasts were despoiled of their estates by
Oliver Cromwell on the occasion of his invasion of
Ireland, and the male line became extinct through
the death of Sir Thomas Prendergast, Postmaster
General of Ireland. In the eighteenth century. He
was succeeded by his sister's eldest son. John, who
became the first Viscount Gort. and, dying childless,
was succeeded in his honors and In his estates by
the son of his sister, who had married Thomas
This nephew of his, Charles Vereker. who as
sumed the name and arms of Prendergast, in addi
tion to his own. drove the French out of Ireland in
1795. General Humbert and his French troops had
landed in Mayo, had routed the British at Castle
bar, and were on their way inland when the second
Lord Gort. who was then merely Colonel Charles
Vereker, at the head of a small detachment of only
three hundred men, blocked his way and gave battle
to him at Coloony. General Humbert was led by
the audacity of Colonel Vereker's attack to believe
that the main body of the British army was at
hand, and, acting on this erroneous belief. inaugu
rated a retreat, which resulted in flight and disaster.
In fact, thanks to this, all danger of a French con
quest of Ireland was at an end. Vereker. who had
been badly wounded lust before the close of the
engagement, received the thanks of the Irish Parlia
ment and authority from the Crown to adopt the
name "Coloony" as his family motto, in commemo
ration of his victory.
The Vorekers, let me add. hall from the Nether
lands, and the founder of the Irish branch of the
line was one of those Flemish gentlemen of birth
who took service under Charles I against Cromwell,
were sorely used by the latter, and who on the
restoration received grants of land from Charles II
in recognition of their devotion to the cause of his
Esther. The present Lord Gort may be said to come
from sporting stock, especially through his mother,
for the widowed Lady Gort is a daughter of Robert
Smith Surtees, the famous sportsman and author of
the immoral "Jorrocks," of "Handley Cross." and
of "Mr. Sponge's Sporting Tour." Indirectly, too.
he was responsible for another famous figure in lit
erature. For It was "Jorrocks" which first sug
gested the idea of Pickwick to Charles Dickens and
to his publishers, Chapman, Hall & Seymour. Lady
Gort is rich in her own right, and -as she has only
two boys Lord Gort is a matrimonial catch, not
only by reason of his title and of his beautiful coun
try sent at Cowes. but also from a financial point
So French Architect Says in I.ecture
on Model Tenement Houses.
A. Augustin Rev, a prominent Parisian archi
tect, whom the French government sent to this
country- to attend the International Tuberculosis

view to obtaining the maximum of liulH and a:r

Preparatory Work at Metropolitan
Will Be Begun in Earnest.
Preparatory work for the coming ys>son at the
Metropolitan Opera House will he on in earnest
now. The Ormun ch«rus has already started re
hearsals, and the Italian chorus and the orchestra
will begin work this week.
Eager to start on his first season at the Metro
politan. M. Giullo Gn'ti-raMMa, the n-w fjeneral
manager, arrived here, yesterday mortrng on the
French liner La Touraine With him was atulio
Setti, the new chorus master for the French and
Italian operas, and Francesco Romei. of the
new assistant conductors. On the same steamer
were thirteen members of the new Italian chorus.
M. Gatti-Casazza looked In good health, though
he said he had had a fatiguing summer listening to
singers in the quest for new material for the opera
house. At tbe pier to meet him was Andreas Dip
pel, the administrative manager.
The grneral manager expressed himself opti
mistically in regard to the season at the Metropoli
tan and on the plans made for the production of
new operas. He did not declare himself so favor
ably in regard to the present output of singers In
Italy and France of Xew York size.
"I found very little that was promls ng in the
way of new material either in Italy or France.''
he said. "Of the new tenors I have en?aped. Ri

More than One Hundred Persons Over Seventy
Years of Age at Calvary.
"Old folks" who had not been to church for
years attended the special service held yesterday
morning in Calvary Methodist Episcopal Church,
129 th street and Seventh avenue. Automobiles and
carriages took many of them to the church from
the Baptist Hrnio for the Aged and the Methodist
Home, at 92d street and Amsterdam avenue.
The social department of the Epworth League of
the church hunted up all the aged persona on the
parish lists, and found many who had not attended
services for several years. They - btained automo
. biles and carriages and made a number of trips
back and forth between the church and the homes.
They also provided a bouquet for each. There W^pe
more than one hundred persons more than seventy
years of age in the front seats.

Stamford, Conn.. Oct. 11. — The New York East

which has been in spssinn h^r" for the last three
days, ended to-day, and the fallowing announce
ments of appointments were made:

In Their Interests to Elect Him and a Republi
lican Legislature.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: There are some t^n million or more persons
In the UnitPd States who hold life Insurance policies;
of these there are enough who are voters to make
a majority of all the votes that will be cast at the
coming Presidential election. Every one of these
policy holders has a personal and direct pecuniary
interest in the re-election <>f Governor Hughes,
whether living In New York State or elsewhere.
Ok man having four policies on "the ten-year pre
mium plan" in two of the large companies arranged
with one of them for a policy, the premium payable
annually during life. The agent, with figures fur
nished by the company, showed that In a limited
number of years the dividends on the four policies
would meet the annual payments on the fifth. For
some years the premium on all the policies met his
expectations, but later they began to decline each
year, until a $10,000 paid up policy, which had been
paying a dividend of $44 annually, was reduced in
1304 to $7 SO. As a result of reforms introduced
by the company following the investigation, the
changes in management and the requirements of the
new legislation, the dividends on a ten-year paid up
policy of $10,000, which was in 1904 $7 80, in 1907
was $16 40, and In 1908 $?>?. 33. an increase from
1904 to 1908 of over 400 per cent. On the life pay
ing policy the decrease had been much less, and the
Increase was correspondingly smaller. On a $10,000
policy It was in 1904, $"£9O; no;, $94 90; 1908.
$109 70, an increase In 190S over 1904 of over 40
p er \ C n t. Dividends in other companies have bOt.
'and probably will not, increase in the same propor
tion, but the polkyholder will get his Just dues.
These figures need no verification: the bolder? of a
million policies in this company can verify one or
other of these statements by referring to the divi
dends on their own policies in the last four years.
-j-| 1A re-election of Governor Hughes and a Legis
lature that will sustain him will mean a sane and
fair supervision of these companies with their im
mense reserves, and the careful management of all
the details of the business in th* interest of the

Gathering the Grapes in Small Fine
yards Near Paris.
Paris. September 20.
Americans accustomed only to the hijeh priced
Frpnch wines that find their way across the At
lantic are astonished on visiting; Paris for the
first time to see notices on the innumerable wine
shops and groceries calling attention to wines.
both white and red, sold at •> or I cents a quart.
Outside the city, but still in the Paris district.
In the Seine or Seine-et-Oise department, for
instance, there is an enormous consumption
among the country population of an even
cheaper wine. It is a very long time since the
gentle hills and breezy plains of this part el
France yielded any famous or supremely excel
lent wine, but dotted all over it there are small
and modest vineyards which furnish enough
"ordinaire" for local use, and in September and
October the gathering of the grape In such lo
calities is attended with as much ceremony aa
in the great wine districts of Bordeaux. Bur
gundy and Champagne. In Champagne this
year there is no vintage whoever, all the vines
having been destroyed. Near Paris the harvest-
Ing is always a little later than in the south
and does not last so long, but the growers of a
place like Marcoussls. who are only a handful,
attach as much importance to their harvest as
do the rich owners of celebrated vineyards.
To the French peasant the water In the well
Is exclusively adapted to cleaning house, and
never by any chance finds its way to the table.
The poorest of the poor drinks his bottle of
cider or wine at each meal, and the children of
tenderest age share it with their parents. This
little -picolo." as the peasants call it. which
they drink at their "marchand de vms" for 3
or 4 cents a bottle. Is usually made on the place.
There are districts where the wine seller num
bers 10 per cent of the population, and In many
small hamlets hardly deserving the name of
villages— hamlets some distance from a rail
way, and without a postofflce— you will find
eight, nine or ten wineshops within a few yards
of each other. Such wineshops frequently re
tail the wine from their own little vineyards.
The owner cultivates his grapes, and when they
are ripe he gathers them at his own conven
ience with the help of his family.
But where there are several vineyards to
gether, covering a certain amount of the land
and requiring for their harvest the assistance
of outsiders, the day for the vintage Is fixed not
by the growers, but by the "commune." At
this season of the year all these little places are
just now posted with the official "avis," printed
In black on plain white paper— an outward and
visible sign in France of government official
dom—informing the citizens that on such a day
of the current or following month the vintage
will begin, and they must make their arrange
ments accordingly.
When th'- day arrives the sound of a drum is
heard in the village, and on the little green,
under the Tree of Liberty, the Mayor's dele
gate, who is usually the keeper of the locality,
announces that the vintage is open and sum
mons the vendangeurs to their respective vine
yards. Armed with their scissors, cutters or
"secateurs." men and women and oftca chil
dren start in procession for their allotment, the
men carrying tho gr°at baskets, and all singing
and talking and laughing at once. Th» vintage
is a fete, ami the ven-ianeeur loves the few au
tumn dnys spent under the warm sun among the
brown vines, where the clusters of small black
or white grapes hang within such easy reach
of the pickers.
Often these vineyards make a very charming
picture. A little stiff in outline because all the
vines are supported on poles of equal length,
there are growers who take a pleasure in lend
ing to their vignoble a graceful touch by adding
here and there a small fruit tree, and here and
there a flowering bush. Her* is one in which
every row of vines is terminated by tall, fr^e
flowering rose?. whit<\ pink or crimson, which
are bearing sweet scented and lovely blossoms.
In tho woods hard by. that clothe the slopes of
the low hills, you may hear the guns of the
chasseurs, and occasionally a covey of par
tridges scuttles by. The scene is of the gayest.
Every one love? the little golden grapo of
France in particular, and while gathering for
the wine every picker is having a feast as well.
From dawn to the end of the fhort sunset of
this early autumn season, the bunches fall
rapidly before the onslaught, and the tall, hod
shaped baskets, piled with the handsome fruit,
accumulate along the different pints. The ma
jority of t;-!^ hired vendangeurs come from the
south, and their swarthy skin and vivacious
manners distinguish them readily from the
more sedate Norman type of the village. The
women's heads are tied up in neat cotton hand
kerchieffe. striped, checked or printed in gay
color*. The men wear wide brimmed straw
hats. Given fine weather, grape picking is a
most fascinating occupation.
Here in the departments outside Paris, but
not in the great wine country districts, the
wages of the grape gatherer are much on the
Fame scale as those prevailing for the ordinary
farm laborer. They do not rise much above
half a dollar a day. 3 francs, or «>0 cents, being
a fair average. The man or woman is fed by
the employer, and can eat dessert all day long
at will. When all the grapes are gathered the
vrfne Is made. A cheap picolo is made without
much ado. grapes and stems heing flung into
tho vat. T'sing the bunch intact in this way
imparts a slightly pungent and not wholly
agreeble flavor to the wine, but the peasant is
not particular. The labor of plucking the ber
rl«i from the stalks adds greatly to the cost
of production, and therefore you will p^ tn the
village vat the stalks and berries stewing to
gether. A fastidious palate may find on first
acquaintance the yin dv pays too sharp anci
too rough. Sometime?, however. It is excellent,
and always is very pure and wholesome, coolinfj
and clean drinking. C. I. B.
M. Marcel Duhois. who has been a professor at
