medical circles hern that Prof. Israel,
a noted Berlin specialist on kidney dis
eases, recently performed at St, Peters-
bum an operation on the llusslan Czare
vitch, whose mysterious niness nas oeen
variously explained. According to the
story now going the rounds, Prof. Israel
removed a tubcrculonus kidney from the
Czar's eight-year-old son, the heir ap
parent to the UuHBlan throne.
It Is said that not only did the spe

successful operation, but he also asked
that a royal decree be Issued rescinding
the order of the Czar by which Jews
were prohibited from hettllng In Odessa
and Kleff. The professor is a Jew.
Humor has It that Prof. Israel wan
not permitted to cross the Husslan
border to perform the alleged operation
until the Immigration laws were set aside
for his particular benefit.

Specim! Cable Ileepatcb to Tun Srv
Viknna, Pec. 20.- A despatch from
Athens to the AVtr. H'fciicr Tagblatt
says Queen lga Intends to pay a visit
to the twenty monasteries on Mount
Athos. This will break the rule for
bidding a woman to set foot on the
holy mountain, which Iibb been observed
for 1,500 years.
The chances of war brought the pen
insula of Chalcidlce Into the possession
of the Greek troops and the monks
who Inhabit the mountain are now-
Greek subjects. The republic of monks
living nn Mount Athos has always shown
a lack of courley toward women, ex
cusing thwnselves by their statutes and
the legend that the Virgin Mary bear
ing the Infant Jesus camo to Indicate
the site of the monasteries, since which
time no other woman has been per
mitted to set foot where she trod. These
arguments were used ngaln't the Into
Empress Elizabeth of Austria and also
against a German princess.
The announcement that the King nnd
Queen of the Hellenes proposed to visit
them, caused a flutter among the monks
Hid they hurriedly summoned the Coun
cil, which decided that they would be
obliged to ulter their statutes in order
to welcome their Qjiecn.

submitted letters received from thu
munagers of the property.
The latest letter, dated Pecember 4,
said that tho property was then sur
rounded by 1,000 bandits under Zapata,
who demanded thn unconditional sur

MEXICO TARIFFS NOT RAISED.
Male Department ItrllPTca Anxiety
of American shipper.
Washington, Dec. 20. Rumors of Im
pending Increases In the Mexican tariff
schedules have caused great anxiety
among exporters In the United Stntes,
who have appealed to the Department
of Stuto for further Information.
It was said at the Department to-day
that there Is nothing In the present
situation to indicate that American ex
porters need have any anxiety for the
Immediate, future. The Mexican Con
gress has adjourned without authoriz
ing Increases In the tariff schedules.
There has been talk of an extra ses
sion of Congress there for the purpnee
of revising the tariff, but nothing def
inite has been decided regarding this
proposal, consequently It Is believed that
it will be a considerable tlmo boforo
any Increases can possibly be author
ized. The Increases In the tariff schedules
are being advocated In Mexico as a
means of Increasing the national reve
nues In order to meet the heavy mili
tary expenses of the Federal Govern
ment. BRENT0N SUIT TO BE PUBLIC.
