IONnon l April 20 Europe await with the
keenest Interest authentic news of the trtaty of
peace between Japan and China The matter Is
regarded by nil tho great eowtrs as of the
gruvtit Importance of any diplomatic event
tlnco the Berlin treaty Was signed Now that
the war has ended In a manner such a no
inroucau l I > prophet had foretold there are not
wanting expressions of regret In all the great
advice the
capitals that Lord Roteberys a to
the outset not acted
powers to Interfere at outet was act
upon The diplomatic apprehension which 1s I almost
eerywhere expressed tends however to much
txaircerate the danger from Japans menacing
growth from a child to 1 giant among tho na
tions Few fears are felt of any Immediate ef
fect upon European Interests but all the foreign
olllces profess t sec the gravest dangers i the
suggestion of I ChineseJapanese alllanct with
a avowed Asia for the Asiatic policy
It Is generally understood that the forthcom
Ins treaty will contain no clause t this effect
but the Impression prevails that there will be
several secret agreements which are not In
cluiitd In the official treaty I Is understood
that Japan has been carefully teetlng European
opinion for several weeks pat by throwing out
this nnd other suggestions in socalled forecasts
of the terms of peace This special point aroused
arh unanimous opposition that the Japanese
Government made haste through Its Minister
to Franco yesterday t allay the apprehension
He denied with authority that the treaty con
ilis any provision for an offensive and do
tcmlve alliance He added It appears
10 mo Impossible that there can b any
intento between two nations which have long
leon separated by feelings of antipathy and
even deep hatred Indeed I am almost certain
1t there Is no alliance and that the treaty I a
were pact putting an end t the hostilities
He went on t remark that i spite of the
armUtlce and approaching peace the Japanese
eminent had ben compelled t interfere
with many local newspapers a they wen
abusing China in a most violent manner
Inrope he concluded h no reason t feel
disturbed at the stipulations of the treaty as
Japan far from becoming a military or com
mercial adversary would open fresh markets in
Asia for Europeans and Americans
i There Is no doubt that the treaty will b se
cretly revised by the European Cabinets before
I I I ratified on May 8 but whether any sug
gntions which may b mae will b accept
C b and is of Impossible to
by China Japan i course impssible t
j say The belief Is strong that both Russia and
Kngland will make an active use of their
Influence and the Impression prevails in the
diplomatic circles of London tat Japan wiU b
khrowdly willing to make important strategic
cnCs lon In Asia t tOe power 1 order t
c ucuro liberty t carry out her plans without

I The colt of Egypt has just yielded up another
secret which archaeologists and the world at
Urge I will receive with the keenest interest
Irif Flinders Petrie who is the greatest of
modern Ugyptologlsta announces the discovery
of a new race whose existence has hitherto been
unsuspected in that ancient land He has just
riturucd from a three months search In tie
d IJtrlct between Balms and N egaeh thIrty miles
north of Thebes He uncovered the remains of
oral successive dynasties of Brest classical
Interest In the ruins of the ancient town of
Nubu They nere discovered less than a quar
ter of a mile away from the remains of another
city which Is utterly different in all its contents
from anything heretofore found in Egypt I
the town had been found In Syria or Persia no
one Mould have supposed It was connected with
Egypt Not ouly a the town found but aO
I series of cemeteries of the same raco Nearly
2000 proves were excavated Every object want
t I noted In position and everything was preserved
and marked by Petrie and his assistants
The result was most strange and inexplica
ble Not single Egyptian object was found
not a carab hieroglyph Egyptian bead god or
amulet such as are abundant In the neighbor

Tw ail of those people was the next problem
Little by little the explorer limited their epoch
xmtll be can definitely say that they lived b
tween the seventh and the ninth dynasties or
about 3000 I C They probably were the people
who overthrew Egyptian civilization at the close
of the old kingdom and produced the dark age
of the seventh and eighth dynasties when
the t Egyptians teem to hare been oppressed by
disaster it Is clear that the physiognomy
of thu race was fine and powerful without a
trace of prognathlsm Their stature was re
markable corn being over six fet In height
The development of the legs points t their
having been a hill race Thlr hair was brown
Wary and not crlp The prominent aquiline
floes and long pointed beard gave a strong r
temblance t the Libyan and Amorlte typ
One remarkable custom was the eating of

Women workers In this country are arriving
at the conclusion that tho law takes too much
car of them Hitherto all factory legislation
lUll proceeded on the assumption that women
and children are equally hololess to protect
themselves Their hour of labor amount of
overtime length of mean time and In fact
very thing save the vital question of the amount
of their wages have been rigidly sot forth In
uccrsslve statutes This tender solicitude has
become so much 1 mailer of course that It Is I a
real shock t philanthropists to hear protests
against their benevolent legislation from women
workers themselves A session rarely passes
without 1 factory bill of some sort being Intro
duced In Parliament and of these
duce Parlament one so measures
now before the House of Commons was brought
In by the Government
Herein of course women and children are
treated alike as babies who do not know what
is good for them Certain sections forbid them
t work more than I specified numbor of hours
overtime weekly and they ore strictly prohibited
ted from taking any work homo with them
But many trades scheduled within tho operation
of this bill are liable to fluctuations Others
bi lablo fuctuaUols Othellre
cason trades and the restrictions sought to be
Imposed would seriously hamper women In
their efforts to earn a living while waiting for
husbands who In
husbdl may never come or keeping
Idleness husbands wno have come and have
come to stay which ot course Is one of the
privileges of women workers
Consequently the Society for the Employment
of Women have taken the matter up and are
sedulously moving various public ladles to peti
tion Parliament to omit the sections In the bill
refere t Inasmuch as they enormously re
strict the freedom of adult women t dispose of
heir own labor and seriously affect the will
being of women working in different trades
The probabilities are that the women will be
accused of Ingratitude and that Parliament
will reaffirm that they do not know and are In
capable of knowing what Is good for them
Simultaneous with this cry of women comes
the demand and a loud one for reform In the
law relating t child labor In the textile trades
but it is I for more stringent legislation and It
will probably be successful despite the opposi
tion of the trades unionists and employers At
present a child may start In a factory as a half
Lime worker at the age of 11 and the proposal
now Is to raise the limit to 12 The Lancashire
and Yorkshire operatives though stanch
trades unionists and sound Democrats in other
respects are bitterly opposed to any Interfer
ence with child labor They would if they
could reduce the limit t 10 years at which it
once stood Naturally enough the manufac
turers are at one with the men In maintaining
the present system which keeps down tho
wages although the men seem Incapable of ap
preciating the fact
It I not often that a reigning prince Is 1
plaintiff in an action for libel but that is the
present position of Prince Nicholas of Monte
negro He has brought action In the Servian
courts agalnit the famous tutor and patriot
Marco Bascovltsh for an alleged libel contained
i pamphlet which that gentleman published
In January Mr Bascovltsh accused the Prince
of conspiring in Russian Interests with the
Servian Radicals against the Obrenovluh
dynasty with Intention to seat himself on the
uneasy throne now occupied by exKing ian
Interesting son But this charge has been made
against Prince Nicholas over and over again
and Its truth had become almost an article of
tat among those who are accustomed t fol
low the tortuous ways of Balkan politics Why
should the Prince suddenly take mortal offence
at the reiteration of the charge at this moment
That is 1 a question which is agitating a good
many more or less distinguished people just
now Probably the actual trial will throw
some light on the matter Piquant revelations
are promised anyhow for all the Radical lead
ers In Servla have been summoned to give el
dnce and some famous Montenegrin chiefs
who until these later degenerate days always
settled their differences at the point of the
sword will also have the novel experience of
testifying in a court of law
THE BUNS Rome correspondent estimates a
a result of the latest calculations of experienced
Italian politicians that Signor Crispls adherents

on the first ballot Second ballots will be un
usually numerous for a variety of reasons and
the various opposition factions wil of course
coalesce against the Ministerialists Novel has

People who remember the prodigious pother
which Portugal made two or three years ago

territorial advantage In Africa will be surprised

Madeira and the Azores Is

that fourfifths of the population are unable to

of 612000 of whom 304338 are unable to rrud

census was taken five years ago the Govern

The Independent Labor party which Is a
euphemism for the British Socialist lies been
In annual conference this week settling the
worlds economic and social business with all
the confidence of youthful reformers The
party owes money t its Treasurer and finds
great difficulty in collecting its dues from the
members but It has breezily voted hundreds of
millions sterling for such things as pensions
for tho aged and living wages for
workers and loafers alike leaving the ques
tion of ways and means In the air
Although they are admittedly fenclalUts
and covertly sympathize with anarchism the
delegates had not the courage to pass a propo
sal t change tbe partys name to the Indepen
dent Socialist party The motion wau rejected
on tho ground that It would L Indiscreet to
avow purely socialistic designs on the eve of a
general election a fact which indicates pretty
clearly that tho British democracy has not yet
learned to love these newfangled things This
gathering ot workers was remarkable for the
sleekness and generally prosperous look of
delegates who claimed t represent the poorest
of the poor The broadcloth badge of the bour
geoisie predominated and glossy silk hats that
detested mark of respectability were aggres

that quite an amusing controversy has

to say that Lord Rottbery has been really il

BFRLIV April OThe evening edition of the
Kotlniithe Zcttuiig says In view of the press
ure exercised by the Japanese war party Ger
many urged Japan at the beginning of March
t bo moderate In her terms of peace
adding that a demand for tho cession
of mainland territory would be especially
calculated to induce European intervention
When it appeared from reports of tho condi
tions offered by Japan that she was little dis
posed to follow this friendly advice Initial steps
were taken on March 23 t establish an under
standing with the European powers
A complete agreement was reached b Ger
many and Russiaand the cooperation of Franc
was secured The three powers will now pro
ceed to take joint steps in Japan to protect their
interests The territorial changes at which
Japan view alms will bo the first point t b kept In
The object Is t prevent Japan from entwin
ing herself so tightly round China as t be able
in case of need to shut of the latter entirely
from Europe Such an Injury to their Interests
the powers desire to avert in Rood time Japan
bal shown hitherto such circumspection that
she may be expected now also to desist from
drawing the bow too tlchtly
The Yordtl ut che Allnemelnt Hung says
M Germany never had any Idea of abstaining
from Intervention In the East Throughout the
war she has been fully alive to tho great danger
that might arise for Europe both politically
and commercially as I result of the new
order of things In cost AsIa Germanys share In
the European Interest concerned iso Important

matters in harmony with the public Intcrentsand
far the public good and It Is believed by us that
the Interests of the public and of the court Itself
will be best preserved by dropping the Invest

fcuuiu vay as Soly kept time A to 1C lodger I
Somo tlmo ago It was suspected that there I
nilwht bo something wrong with Armnrs books
and they were subjected to the closest examina

found that this books uuld not balance within
Mr Hlltnor states that neither the imrplun 14
the undivided prollts nor the capital stock of the i
bank will be Heeled by tIme defalcation as after
tIme new management took charpo of time Insti 4 I
tution on March 4 lost a guarantee fund was 4
created and set aside to cover any losses which 4
might hao been sustained previous to their
assuming direction of time banks affairs iJ
Another thing that the now management did m
was to establish a strict surveillance over all the
clerks employed In the bank especially over
thoso who wore known to have in any way I
afllllated with Scely Any clerk who was found
to be Irregular In his habits wits discharged It 1i
was this system of aurvelllanco which led to
the discovery of Aymars defalcation When
Amar went out to luncheon and after he left
the bank at night ho was watched and It was j
learned that ha drank Then the system of 4
checks upon tIme books which Mr Hiltuer Intro
duced was applied to Aymars books and the
Irregularities were discovered t
Aymar worked boldly His desk adjoined
that of the receiving teller When there was a u
long row of depositors In Hnound the book
keepers long connection with the bank gave
him n personal acquaintance with most of the
depositors Aymar would say to a depositor im
mediately In front of his window
You neednt wait for the teller Mr Blank
Ill take your deposit
Glad to get through with his business as
quickly UH possible tIm depositor would hand
his pass book to Aymur who would make the j
credit and return the book If thus depositors j
name happened to bo on Aymars ledger ho j
would credit the amount on ibm ledger and
then put so much of the dcpoilt as was cash In j
his pocket Then he would charge to one of the vi
large accounts on his ledger tho amount he had
pocketed from tim deposit ho hail just been
good enough tu take In order to keep the de Y
positor from vraltlnir 1
Mr Hlltnor suites that Aymars thefts cover
a considerable period but were all committed
prior tu a year ago This doesnt speak well L
for the examinations of the books made after °
