M&ARAm m 'eLACKMSR, SOUTHERN BOUNDARY OF THE ftCWCAMR Fair Peace is winning her way into the hearta of the world powers slow ly but surely, so that the probability of Grim War breaking forth in one of his wild tantrums is growing less and less likely, and yet there is al ways the possibility that the giant will awake and it is the part of wisdom, so the nations feel, to learn the war game during the reign of the afore said fair Peace. This is particularly true of the European powers, but while the military establishment of the United States is insignificant as com pared with those of her neighbors across the Atlantic, there is the same pur pose and ambition to practice the arts of war and to work out the prob lems which would be met with in the case of actual conflict This strife for military and naval efficiency has developed an elaborate scheme of summer campaigning bo that the army of the cast and the army of the west, together with the coast defenses and the navy, are kept busy In field operations, and naval maneuvers as tbey are at no other time of the year. Interest in this war game centers in the east, because there not only the soldiers, but the navy and the coast defenses enter into the spectacular diBplay, which will continue through June and well into July. Hostile fleets will sail through the lower bay at New York. Troops will go tramping through the streets or across the fields to defend the fortifications. Real shells ranging from 6 to 12 inches, driven by full charges of powder, just as If war were In full progress and New York were being assailed by a great fleet of battleships, will screech through the aff and plow the waters of the harbor. There are doubtless persons who will wonder why shells of such gigan tic proportions should be distributed over the waters of the lower bay, the gateway of half of the foreign com merce of a nation of 80,000,000 people. "Can't this practice at shooting be done where there is less danger of doing damager perhaps the thought less will ask. An army officer, if he thought himself privileged to talk, would reply that New York would be one of the choice pickings of war and that It Is essential to have practice in the manipulation or tbe engines ior protecting the city if it la to be pro tected properly. .la the coast defense work In the fortifications there will be not only firing t targets and practice in detecting at night the approach of an enemy " Personated by a few government tugs, but the solving of nch problems aa this: . -The enemy has landed a force of Sr - 50,000 men at Long Branch with the intention of approaching the romnca tlons of New York In the rear and cutting them off." This will set the officers in com mnnd to studvlne methods of protect ing the fortifications.

Vanderbllt, whom the Enfrilsh press delight In calling "the richest young man In the world." has taken one of the most "swagger" flats In London. For the privilege of living on the sixth floor nvAHnnkinr Piccadilly, the famous London thoroughfare, the American millionaire la paying lio.ooo a year. As the rent docs not Include rates and taxes there Is an extra Item of expense of about $3,000 per annum. To the British public $250 a week looks Alfred Vanderbllt Lives In These Flats. like a tall price to pay Just to keep a flat roof over one's head, but to the scion of the Vanderbllts, with his ex perience of $25,000 suites at the As toria and one of $60,000 at the new Plaza, it is a mere bagatelle. So far as London is concerned the flats in which young Vanderbllt now Is settled are the last word in their line. Nothing like them even has been attempted in that part of the world, and the American, with his trans-Atlantic ideas of unlimited expenditure, is the only person who as yet has had the nerve to rent one. They are built on the 6lte of the mansion of the late duke of Cambridge and sttnd midway between the high class club district and Mayfalr, the home of England's "four hundred." Next to them and stretching up Piccadilly to Apsley house, the town residence of the duke of Wellington, which abuts Hyde park, are the several residences occupied by the famous Rothschild family, the kings of finance. The building in whlcn Vanderbllt has taken up his quarters has a front age on Piccadilly of almost 70 feet and on Park lane of about 200 feet It Is of gray granite, rather fantastically and ostentatiously ornamented with glazed green brick. There are six flats (over there they have not yet learned the nice distinction between flat and apartment), each one of which contains ten large bedrooms, three bath rooms, a number of smoking, billiard and drawing rooms, cloakroom". Wtch en, halls, boudoirs and a great ball room. A man without any family with him ought to worry along on that MAY SEEK HOPKINS' TOGA. Friends of Congressman Foss Would Send Him to 8nate. Chicago.
