Judgeship of the sixteenth judical! district
to fill the unexpired term of Judge Charles
E. Ntcol. who resigned from the bench in
order to enter the congress onai fight. Following

been serving in a dual capacity?as
Judge of the corporation court of this city
and judge uf the circuit courts of this Judicial
district. The term of Judge Nicol
n..vt lannopv irlion tha
slate legislature would have elected his
successor.
Judge Barley has always contended that
if tt was Intimated by Gov. Swanson that

the dual capacity he would tender his resignation
at once. Judge Barley received his
commission from the governor March 13
last and since that time has been act'-ng as
Judge of the circuit courts for this district.

Scotland Yard Telephone.
Special Cablegram to The Star.
L/ONDON, August 10.?Scotland Yard Is
famous the ^orld over as the headquarters
for the least up-to-date thief catchers In
the world. And It Is Interesting to note
thai It was only a few days ago that a telephono
service was installed there, so conservative
are the British otfK'lals of all
classes.
Now and hereafter, however, the Scotland
Yard telephone will be open to any citizen
who has suffered wrong or who has important
matters to communicate to trained detectives.
Scotland Yard Is publicly registered In
the telephone books as No. 14118 central.
It Is hoped that the new system will materially
aid In the detection and capture of
criminals, for heretofore much precious
time has been lost by the authorities In
r-'nlmi ii^armatlon.

THE HAGUE, August 10.?Baron von
Blebersteln's co-operation wKh the American
delegates In the matter of the formation
of the International court of Justice,
etc., is excitlnig comment' here. It is reported
on good authority that the baron is
destined to become the next chancellor of

von Buelow, and that the basis of his policy
will then be an alliance with the United

The new scheme for the international j

by Dr. Kriege (Germany), Eyre Crowe

court, but declared that they were prepared
to accept any other plan or to co-of>erate
In producing a plan acceptable to
everybody, jt i8 certain that tha court will
be started without the adhesion of certain

Russia Protests.
While the negotiations regarding the proposed

delegates and St. Petersburg M. N'eWdoff
(Russia) has declared that he will appose
especially the British proposal that
representatives of the powers meet at The
Hague two years previous to & meeting of

Nelldoff is of the opinion that such a preliminary
meeting: would start a pacificist
agitation throughout the world that would
be embarrassing to the various governments.
One hundred and sixty Russian Hebrew
delegates, .forming over one-third of the
total representation in the Zionist coogress
that meets here next week, held a
preparatory meeting today which soon assumed
an anti-Russian character. The persecution

BERLIN, August 10.?There is a feeling *
here that the peace conference at The

Academic questions have been discussed at s'
academic length, but when It comes right a

On account of the rate of speed of the

collection of lodge relics, assembled to constitute
one of the attractions of the late
centennial celebration. The building Is
heated by a hot water plant, and is lighted
by both gas and electricity.
Architecture Is Egyptian.
The architecture of the lodge room is
Egyptian in its essential features, and the
scheme of decoration will be of that or the
closely allied Assyrian school. Blue prints
showing the plan and dimensions of the
room in detail have been prepared for the
guidance of competitors for the work, whose
sketches and estimates will be considered
by the committee Monday, the atlth Instant,
immediately following which the work will
be commenced under the direction of the
successful bidder.

twenty years afterward, th'i number had
risen to 14.002. Nineteen hundred and four

far the greater proportion of divorces has
been granted on the score of cruelty and
the like. Thus those divorces amounted in
1884 to 1.477. and In 1804 to 10.597. In the
last-named year the divorce* granted on
the application of husbajids for breach of
the seventh commandment were 2.304; those
on the petition of wives being 1.507. In
1884 they had been 245 and 97, respectively.
Then whereas In 1884 divorces owing to
the condemnation of one of the parties to
"an Infamous penalty" numbered 60, In
1904 they had risen to 284. Incompatibility
of temper seems to be the cause of most
of the fllvorces. But besides thase cases
there are a good many separations, aa the
Catholic Church does not. of course, sanction
divorce; so that numbers of people,
when matrimonial Jars occur, refrain from
