BAY STATE ROYALTY DESCENDANTS OF MASSASOIT CLAIM VALUABLE LAND. Two Massachusetts Women Descended in Direct Line From the Famous Wompanoag Chief. Lakeville (Mam.) Letter to New York Tribune. On the shores of Lake Assowompsett, in this town, in a modest cottage of their own construction, live the last of a Ions line of American royalty, the Princesses Teweeleema and Wootonekanuske, as they are pleased to call themselves, or the Misses Melinda and Lottie Mitchell, as they are known to the postmaster of Lakeville. The women are lineal descendants In the eighth generation of Massasoit, the chieftain of the Wompanoag Indians. Massasoit, it wiH be remembered, was ruler of the territory from Cape Cod to Narragansett Hay when the Pilgrims land ed at Plymouth. He made a treaty with the settlers in 10?1, and maintained friendship with them until his death forty years later. Had the Pilgrims encountered the hostility from the natives which was shown in other sections, it is doubtfuV if the infant colony which contributed so much to the American Commonwealth could have gained a foot hold on these inhospitable shores. Mas sasoit was the lather of King Philip. Mother of the "Princesses." Tho mother of the "princesses," Mrs. Zervia Gould Mitchell, was a full-blooded Indian, a descendant of Massasoit. Their father was Thomas C. Mitchell, who was part Cherokee and part English. They were married in North Abington, Mass., a lively shoe town in Plymouth county, and it was here that the Indian girls received the greater part of their education in the public schools, and spent a large part of their lives. Mrs. Mitchell died in North Abington In INilN, in her ninety-first year. She had been fully civilized and Christian ized, for she had been a member of the Baptist Church there for seventy-two years. Mr. Mitchell followed the sea, and was a steward on merchant vessels sailing be tween Boston and China. He was a mem ber of the Congregational Church. He died In Fall River In ISIS). The Misses Mitchell have the appearance of being full-blooded Indians. They have high cheekbones, dark, copper-colored skins and coarse black hair, and yet they have considerable refinement and culture, which have come with several generations of in tercourse with civilized people. The only Indian accomplishments of the "princesses" are basket weaving and fortune -telling. They are frequently seen at Massachusetts summer resorts selling their wares. Means of Sustenance. The sisters formerly spent only the sum mer months on the shores of Lake Asso wompsett, passing the winters in North Abington, but in recent years they have made Lakeville their permanent home. They live in a small, neat cottage, which they built themselves, with the assistance of a carpenter to do the heavier part of the labor. The cottage is surrounded by about thirty acres of land, part of which is under cultivation. The farm work is done entirely by the sisters. They own several small cottages, which they rent in the sum mer. and sell milk and farm produce to the visitors. Although it would seem that thirty acres ought to satisfy almost any woman in the ordinary walks of life, the "princesses"' are not satisfied, and lay claim to some five hundred acres in Lakeville. which belong, by right, they declare, to the heirs of Mas sasoit. They have in their possession a deed to this large amount of property, which was recorded more than two hundred years ago. The present owners of the land show no inclination to give it up to the royal sisters, however. The aged mother had used her influence to have the state guardianship removed from the Indian lands in Fall River, maintaining that two hundred acres in that city rightfully be longed to the descendants of the old chief tain of the Wompanoags. The Mitchell girls occasionally appear in Indian court costumes, of which they are exceedingly proud, and many times they have left their work to don them for some "kodak fiend." The costume consists of a headdress of feathers, sash, short skirt of red and gold, leggins and moccasins. On all ordinary occasions- they wear the conven tional dress of their Yankee neighbors. They have always worn short skirts, for by the nature of their manner of living they are athletic. Among their friends tlie Indian sisters are proud to mention Hezekiah Butterworth, the author, who one isummer was their boarder. He occui>ted an old cottage, known as King Philip's, on ttoe short of the lake, where he did considerable writing. It was the home of an Indian- ancestor of the sis ters a hundred years apo. Many years have already passed over the royal sisters' heads, and the time cannot be far distant when the last descendants of the great friend of the Pilgrim Fathers will pass from the sight of man. "THE PLAGUE OF WOMEN." A Disease With Which Britain's War Office Has Been Long Infected. From tho NYw York Evening Sun. "Tlie plague of women" complained of by Mr. (now Sir Frederick) Treves in the course of the late war in South Africa seems not to have been confined to the Cape Colon}-. If we are to believe the word of certain apologists who have risen to the defense of the British government since the publication of the facts brought to light by the commission appointed to inquire into the conduct of the late cam paign, the disease is and has long been endemic in and about the war office. These worthies, with perfect candor, have point ed it out as a sort of excuse, or at least extenuation, of the general lassitude, apathy and apparent lack of Judgment d's played by those in power. They show that rthcre necessary business was overlooked, and where men of small attainments were put in responsible places It was not always the fault of the great men in authority, but rather of the great ladles who advised the great men. < It must be a matter of satisfaction to Englishmen to know that all the recent talk about the degeneracy of tlie race, the deterioration of the national physique and the rest of the dismal discoveries of the pessimists is pure nonsense. It is evident now that the bungling and incompetence so largely exhibited during the late war cannot be attributed to these defects. There is no reason to suppose that England could not produce the right men in time of need, and if the right man does not always happen to be in the right place at the right moment, his absence, as the candid apologists point out, is often due to an amiable weakness on the part of his superiors, a laudable ambition to be on good terms with the great ladies and great lords who have equally laudable ambitions in regard to their growing sons and heirs. This admirable fidelity to the grand old English system of aristocracy appears to spread from the bottom to the top of the war office; the commander-in-chief himself is true to the tradition. Major General Brabazon, a rougher type, with little re spect for tlie value of titles In the presence of an enemy, spoke as follows in his testi mony before the commission: "I was furious at the Idea of officers going home before the war was over for private affairs. I forbade them. I refused them leave, but then they went to Lord Roberts, and if they had any family Interest they got 'their leave." Lord Kitchener's point of view was more nearly like General Brabazon's. When an anxious and Influential parent telegraphed to him: "Mj& son Is urgently wanted at home; please let him come," Kitchener repliedr'i"Your son is more ur gently needed herej-he cannot come." There are some in England who share this atti tude, regarding the besiness of a soldier as something more serious than a popular diversion of the aristorracy. But British traditions are persistent, and it may be some time before .the War office can bring "itself, in time of business, to forget dis tinctions and return te the simple social equality that prevailed! when Adam delved and Eve span.

Annexation Declared to Be Impossible ?Unfair Treatment Given as the Reason. From the Manitoba Free Press. The Free Press has received a request from a United States Journalist represent ing a syndicate of leading newspapers or that country for a statement of what it conceives to be the position of Canadians on the question of their national future. Our correspondent says that he cannot understand the refusal of the Canadian peo ple to countenance the suggestion that they should join the American Union. We are pleased to have the opportunity of stating our views briefly for tlie enlightenment or our corresuondent. First, what are the national aspirations of Canada? Canadians expect to develop their country along the lines already laid down into a strong, self-contained, pros perous and populous nation. They expect to remain permanently a part of the British empire, which will probably take the form in the near future of a confederation ot so\ ereign states rather than continue the ?teSei"j relat.on of motherland and colonies. ,.thu, empire disintegrate, from ex ternal shock or Internal dissensions. Can id i 7h?"li ""/luestionably take her place among the republics of the world under a flag ot Msc.wJ'ihTwenty years ago Sir John A. Macdonald declared more than once that anada had only two alternatives?to re main a part of the empire or join the United it . , may have been true then. >'ut It is not true now. Since then Canada has lon !lJ'lun'\USly ln weaIth' more im portant still, In national feeling. It is un ?he Hr?, VnXl?,US 1? remaln * Portion St the British empire, but, failing this. It will become an independent nation. It would not, under any circumstances, consider .for fhrowTu Ihf ^Kestion 'hat "t shoula throw in its lot with the United States. No Annexation Sentiment. There is no sentiment whatever in Canada in favor of annexation. It is not even a subject for academic discussion. There was a time when, the country being still in the experimenta! stage, many weak-heart ed Canadians thought that the scheme of tinu nnr ?nfederatlon would fall, and that our destiny was to be incorporated at an early date in the United States ihese doubters are either dead or they a\e plucked up a little more courage We reason for n'"" ,them nowada>s- The chief Ins ?s the rll iTk,06 of annexation feel ? i remarkable growth in national ySars?eandWthIph ,haS takcn place of lil*te ' I strong resentment felt by Canadians at what they regard as persist haL had by ,he United States nas had a great deal to do with the rar>i<l this sent,?ent. The fact In a fin i i" Und' probabl>- would, pay us L" a 'i"anc!al , sense to Join the United nothing to do with the question Canadians are a commercial people eieer to increase their wealth, but they will not let financial considerations affect them in an issue in which their honor Is eng^ed They propose to keep the name of Canada alitv '^ap,na?, a distinct nation* sacHfiZ I do that they have made many sacrifices in the past, and are prepared if necessary, to repeat them. If it could'l ? demonstrated to every elector In Canada f- ? on?tUhe subject the affl?a^etJvkote Hostility to United States. As to the attitude of Canadians toward the I nited1 States, there is on the part of a considerable section of the people a strong feeling of hostility toward that country Much of this is hereditary. Ontario and the Maritime Provinces wore originally settled 1<?yallstls . f?"n the American colonies who lost their all by reason of their devo tiori to the crown; and the next generation of ( anadians had to defend Canadian soil agc.inst an invasion by the United States troops. Hereditary antipathies ar s/ng from causes such as this die out slowly "a instanced by the anti-British feel in tr of e/s? ?? ~?i" resentment caused by the commercial policy ?L,?,e -1 nlted States, a policy which, it js b("e\ed on this side of the line, was delib erate! j adopted with a view to squeezing us ir.to joining the American Union. The extent of this feeling might, however be easily over-rated. It is discouraged by our wisest leaders. Their advice to Canadians to make themselves as independent as possible of the United States, but not to cultivate a feeling of liostilitv toward that country. Sir Wilfrid Lauricr, speaking in par lament within the last six weeks m," doubtedly gave expression to the feeling oi the majority of Canadians wnen he said; Sir, our lelations today with our Ameri can neighbors are friendly; they were never mv'nart- T* ' ^ lhey wiI1 ?nUnue Fo? "ever made any secret of it?I it a greate3t posslble admiration for the American people. I have always ad I^ivp f , njany strong qualities. Uut I ha\e found during the short experleli-e ' which it has been my privilege and my for tune to be placed at the head of affairs by best ^and "Irf ?a"?,d,an t ha [the *>e.st and moot effective way to ma into in friendship with our American neighbors is to be absolutely independent of them." ! Canadian Development. Following out this policy, Canada is ex tending her railway systems, improving her ! internal water communications, developing ! her seaports, keeping her trade ln her own channels and cultivating business relatl, ri? with the outside world. The result is that we are to a very much greater extent than formerly commercially independent of the ." ,a States; that is to say. 110 action by the American Congress couid now repeat the damage that was done to Canada by the passage of tljj^riginal McKinley bill. Mut ters will probably remain as they are for some time to come. Vet despite of our cus toms laws and the governmental d scourase ment of reciprocal trade, there is a vast and constantly increasing commerce between the two countries; and ultimately this will be too much for the politicians. We shall see in time, and perhaps In the not very far distant future, more friendly commercial relations between the two countries; but the political destinies of the two lands lie apart. LANGUAGE TINKEBING. Efforts to Make the Alphabet More Phonetic?Brevity Not Everything. From the New York Tribune. Another language tinkering project is afoot. L,abor saving and condensation are its object. It will not do to incur the labor I of writing two letters when one will suffice, and space must not bo wasted by print ing two when one will serve the purpose. Therefore, it Is proposed to Introduce into the alphabet two new characters. One Is to represent the sound of "th" and the other that of "sh '?the latter being now repre sented in some words by various other com. blnations of two or three letters. Then to avoid Increasing the alphabet to twenty elght letters, the single letters q and x are to be dropped, and their work Is to be done by the combinations "cw" and "cs," re spectively. The introduction into the lan guage of the very same evil that ln the former case Is to be eliminated from it seems inconsistent; but it Is argued that "th" and "sh" and its kindred combinations occur much more frequently than q and x so that there will be a net ga'n I11 substitut ing the lesser evil for the greater. This proposal aims, of course, at making the alphabet more purely phonetic than it now is. Theoretically, that aim may be a good one. Practically, it is unattainable and Is of doubtful value. If our alphabet were made phonetic there would be no con fining It to twenty-six letters. It would have to be expanded to several times twenty-six. That would be Intolerably cumbersome. The alternative would be to abolish the majority* of our vowel and con sonant sounds and go back to a more prim itive form of speech, which also would be Intolerable. The fact is, a highly devel oped and cultivated language cannot have a purely phonetic alphabet. It must rep resent several sounds by the same letter or combination of letters,- just as it must use the same word to express different ideas. Tttose conditions are made neces sary by the multiplicity anil complexity or sounds and Ideas anions: a highly clvll 1 i Some comparatively primitive alphabets have been more nearly phonetic . n ours- no language to tlay has, in the strict sense, a phonetic al phabet. or anything like it. As for these two proposed phonetic char acters It is to be (Swerved that one of ' \s merely a revival of an old one. which long ago was pretty generally alun ?K U w Phoenicians, the Greeks and the Hebrews had each a letter correspond iT?

We should be not gainers, but great losers, if. in remodeling words for the sake of brevity, we disguised their de rivation and etymology and destroyed their individual characteristics, and s > made the correct use of them less easy and less eer tain.
