Address ? t VILLAGES IN REVOLT AGAINST AUTHORITIES Acute But Amusing Situation Arises in the French Town of Lauriere. Foreign Correspondence of The Stir. PARIS, May 13, 1911. An acute situation has arisen In the ?lllMe of Lauriere, near Limoges, where the Inhabitants have revolted against the decision of the authorities to remove the .tax collector's office and that of the local government of the canton to St. Sulpice. The affair is not without its comical side. The other morning gendarmes from Limoges, headed by a commissioner of police, entered the village, but sixty peas ants had surrounded the town hall and re fused them entrance. Meanwhile the mayor discovered that the seals of the basket containing the tax collector's pa pers?the matter immediately in dispute had been broken and the papers removed. On hearing of this the police commission er from Limoges telephoned to the pre fect of that town, who left at once for Lauriere. Meanwhile about 800 peasants arrived at the village to reinforce the lnsurrec tionarles. when the prefect of Limoges arrived a great crowd. Including 300 ex cited women, blocked his entrance into the town hall. He parleyed with the rebels outside, but they refused to give up the papers until they received a prom ise that the departmental changes should not be made. The prefect then communicated with the premier, M. Monis. The result is that the public prosecutor at Limoges has been ordered to hold an Inquiry. This means that the Judicial authorities will go with a force of police to Lauriere and make a house-to-house search for the missing pa pers. The peasants are preparing to resist. The hotels and restaurant keepers have agreed to refuse to afford the officials or the police any food or accommodation. Hew Pott for S. D. V. North. 8. D. N.

Former Representative Henry Moore Baker of New Hampshire today 1b the possessor of an honorary degree of doctor of laws conferred upon him by Howard University. The forty-second annual commencement exercises of the university, in Metropoli tan A. M. E. Church last night, close what is conceded by the board of trus tees and friends of the university to be the greatest year in the history of the In stitution. The auditorium was filled with a rep resentative audience, the faculties and distinguished guests occupying seats on the platform. Including Justice Thomas H. Anderson. Justice G. W. Atkinson. Dr. F. J. Grlmke. Judge H. M. Baker. Dr. M. V. Waldron, Rev. Dr. F. W. Goodwin, and other distinguished guests were present. The address was given by Justice Wen dell Phillips Stafford. He took the poet Whittier as his theme, dwelling upon him as the poet of common life, religion and especially as the prophet of freedom. Whittier's life Illustrates, Justice Staf ford said, the fact that education is not merely through books and the college. A course at Harvard or Yale might have spoiled the poet Whittier. His native gifts were unfolded through knowledge of books and men without the formal help of the school. Honorary Degrees Conferred. Honorary degrees were . conferred as follows: Doctor of laws. Robert B. Jones, A. M., B. D., D. D.; Henry Moore Baker, A. B., A. M.. LL. B. Doctor of divinity, Rev. Joseph L. McCoy, Rev. Aquila Sayles. Master of arts, William Alpheus Hunton, A. B.

WELSH 1NE STRIKERS GIVE POLICE TROUBLE Recurrence of Serious Dis order in the Rhondda Valley District. Foreign Correspondence of The Star. CARDIFF*, Wales, May 14, 1911. There has bean a recurrence of serious disorder at the seat of the strike In the Rhondda valley. It originated in a demonstration on the part of the strik ers against a non-unionist employed at the Bush colliery of the Abergorkl Com pany. This pit, though not controlled by the Cambrian Colliery Combine, and Is there fore in no way aifected by the dispute which led to the stoppage of work by 12,000 miners, Is situated In the district, and the non-unionist was returning to his home through Blaenclydach, the scene of the March disturbances, when he waa met by a hostile body of strikers. As a non-unionist he is not a contributor of the 2 shillings a month levy Imposed by the South Wales Miners' Federation on its members in support of the Cam brian Combine, and this circumstance, it is alleged, was the cause of the demon stration. He waa reughiy handled, then forcibly robed In a white ahirt, and driven some distance along the main road, to the booing and Jeering of the crowd. A body of police went to his assistance, and this action waa resented, so that there ensued another of those conflicts which have proved so persistent and d scredita ble features of the conduct of this strike. Stoned the Constables. Hurriedly withdrawing themselves late Che steep side streets Issuing up the mountain on the northeast side of the valley, the men fiercely stoned the con stables and drove them into shelter. In formation of the disturbance was com municated to the headquarters of the police at the Tonypandy skating rink, and reinforcements were immediately dis patched along different routes to the scene, under the command of Supt. Wil liams. On their way these reinforcements met with very little hostility, but at Blaenclydach they had several sharp en gagements at close quarters. Many of them were struck with stones, broken bottles and other missiles, and it was not until after several baton charges that the men were dispersed and the disturbance eventually suppressed. 81xte?i officers were wounded and sur gically treated for face, neck and band cuts, and a still larger number suffered from bruises caused by blows from stones. Among the more seriously in jured were members of the Lancashire, Glamorganshire, Devonshire and Merthyr county police forces. Supt. Williams was himself badly hurt. His alleged assailant was afterward arrested and detained in custody. Between seventy and eighty constables were engaged in the conflict, but the number on duty has since been strengthened. HISSES THEIR MUSIC; APPLAUSE NOT WANTED The Futurists of Milan Set Up New Standards for Dramatic Production. ftoelgn Correspondence of Tlw Star. MILAN. May 12, 1011. The futurists, the band of literary fire eaters and apostles of blood, violence and the destruction of everything venerable, have issued a new manlfeeto for the guidance of dramatlo authors. Writers are particularly adjured to be gin by dlodainlng the'public, more par ticularly wealthy oocupants of ? stalls, "wfeoee slow d^gesttoa prevents sustained Intellectual effort." Futurist playwrights are also to cultivate a horror of Im mediate success, which Is characterised as a distinguishing mark of mediocre work. While futurists wish to abolish both ap plause and booing in the theater, for which they say parliament is a fitting place, authors are advised of the volup utous pleasure of having their plays hiss ed. Signor Marinetti, the writer of the manifesto, proudly proclaims the fact that his works have been hissed both in France and Italy, and he hopes that hie "genius will never be burled under over bearing applause." Still more revolutionary is the futurist demand that the motives of love and the "Inevitable triangle" shall be placed In the background. Special disdain la shown for plays on historical characters. The new drama is to deal with the idealization of machinery and the scien tific revolution of modern times. Futurists will replace the psychological drama by an 'intoxicating synthesis" of life writ tea In blank verse. Shorty McCabe Again! Sewell Ford is represented In our next Sunday Magazine with one of his Shorty McCabe stories, told with all the humor and fine, high feeling that characterise every one of his series. "Going Hoarse on Hicks" is the name of this one. Hicks was a snob at first, and excited Shorty's ire, particularly when he called Shorty to account for kicking his savage dog. But at last Hick* himself got up against It? and of course that is where Shorty show ed up In all his old-time luster. Every thing ends happily when Shorty MoCabe has anything to do with It.
