ROCHEFORT BECOMES FRAIL Physicians Deprive the Public of His Scathing Editorials. ATTRACTION FOR TOURISTS Museum Established at Historic Chateau Dedicated to the Horse. Generous Contributions. sperial Cablegram to Th<" Star. PAK1S, August lo.?Paris in August is not a very interesting place In spite of ihe fact that our streets, thanks to our liiithfal foreign visitors, are as bustling as ever. There is a semblance of life, (?ut life itself has d? parted. In former years at least one gifted journalist writer, old Henri Rochefort, has re mained with us and delighted us with i n- witty articles of his pointed pen. hut tiiis year even the pleasure of reading the ? ?Id tire-eater's editorials has been taken from us. His body has grown frail in ceaseless fignting and his doctors have peremptorily forbidden him to write -another lino nntil he has had a long rest. Henri Rochefort and rest! The two are incommensurable, and what has happened < an moan only ?<ne th.n?. The old jour nalistic warhorse will never again return to the journalistic arena and we shall : i-ur read anyr her ?>f his Stirling. witty aiid scathing articles As a poor substitute for Roehefort's stinging lashes we ar? daily treated to the malodorous outbursts in the tiuerro Sociaie by Oustave llerve, the harmless . nti-militarist whom the president par doned following the brilliant review at l.ongchumps on Bastille day. and who re warded the executive by publicly lnsult ?ng him in open letter. In List of Attractions. One more museum has been added to r.< already large number ol" show places which no foreign tourist can afford to miss. I refer to the .Malsons l^atitte. hitherto mostly known for its race course :md training stables, whose old chateau !;a_- just l?e? n opened as a public museum. Interesting memories associate them selves with the mansion, which was known as Maison"s '"tout court" until l^aittte.*the banker, bought it and turned part of the estate into building lots, w hence arose the town known as Maisons l^atttte. Voltaire, one of the distinguished guests of the house, nearly set fire to it through the overturn of his bedroom candle, lie wrote here "Mariane" and part of "Hen i iade." Another habitue of this hand some residence, built for Rene de Ix?n gueil. was the Rol Soleil. AJme. Du Pom padoui, and Mme. Du Barry both envied it. and Ixtuis XV had a notion of buying n. but it fell eventually to the Comte d' Artois, who acquired It for two million francs. The future Charles X spent a treat deal of, money on the house and caused the dining room to be decorated by Pellanger and L'Huilier. The revolu tion drov.e the prince into exile and the place was sold as public property. Its proprietor became Marshal Lannes, t>uc de Montebello, under whose owner ship it knew a certain splendor, as when Napoleon rested there. On one occasion, when the emporor arrived unexpectedly, crossing the Seine in the ferry, he fell into the water and was fished out by a passerby, who was unaware of the Iden tity of his subject until the following day. when he received a certificate and a sum of money. Loncueil, could he be awakened from his sleep, would not recognize the beau tiful park that joined that of St. Ger maln. but the house still remains as a perfect monument of the time, and a clever piece of gardening utilizes the remnant of the estate In providing a vista to the river. Gobelins and old state furniture occupy the halls where supped an emperor and two.kings of France. Dead Leader's Memory. Antoine, the former leader of the Christian Scientists, though dead, still I exercises influence over his followers in Prance. The other day the cpmmissary of police in the Sorbonne quarter was In formed that permission to bury an infant | of four months, Marie Augustine L**clercq, had been refused. The magis trate went to the address given him?a hovel occupied by a certain Jules becleTcq and his mistress. Mathilde Santed. He found the mother and father on their knees by the bedside of their dead child. Everything In the room was filthy, and the doctor who accompanied tlie magistrate announced after an ex amination that the child had died from la< k of medical attention. The parents freely acknowledged that they had called in no doctor for their child. When asked the reason of their criminal neglect they replied: "We are the faithful followers of Antoine, the healer, and we hold that (Jod alone has the power, if He will, to save and to cure. The Most High preferred to call our beloved child to Himself. His will be done." This explanation, which proved that the parents of the dead child belonged to the Belgian edition of that*sect of Christian Scientists founded by Antoine, the healer, did not satisfy the magistrate, ??et:lercq and his mistress were arrested and im prisoned and the body of the child taken to the morgue for the autopsy. Inquiries showed that another child, of whom I^eclercq was not the father, had fallen a victim in the month of June to the in fluence of this couple. Museum in Ancient Chateau. In the ancient chateau of Saumur has been inaugurated a Museum of the Horse. Nowhere could such a museum have been more appropriately lodged, for the cavalry school of Saumur sends out the finest horsemen In France, perhaps the finest military horsemen in the world. The museum is not yet complete, but al ready there is a splendid collection of casts, skeletons, photographs, designs of the horse and of rare books that give its history throughout the ages. Naturally, too. there is a wealth of harness and 1 trappings, ancient and modern, of the least and west, including spurs, saddles and shoes. Many private persons have c6ntributed generously to- the museum, including Mme. Kdmond Blanc. Jean Stern, Gab riel Hanotaux and Kdouard Detaille, and further funds will be voted by the city of Saumur, which has already subscribed handsomely. SLAP AT EQUAL SUFFRAGE. Objection Made in Senate to Publica tion of Taylor Speech. The cause of woman's sufTrage received a check in the United States Senate yes terday w hen- objection was made to the publication as a public document of the speech of Representative Taylor of Colorado on woman's suffrage. Senator Ashurst of Arizona made the request, saying that the question of woman's suffrage was coming up before the voters in his state this fall. Senator Smoot, chairman of the com mittee on printing, leaped to his feet and objected vigorously. He based his ob jection on the ground that It was a dan gerous precedent to have speeches of senators and representatives made on the floor of the Senate and House printed by the thousand at the expense of the gov ernment for distribution in various states. He said that if such a practice became common, a second government printing office would be needed.' ' Senator Ashurst pointed out that this speech had already been printed as a public document, and Senator Smoot re torted that he had been absent from the chamber when the consent was given. He pointed out that by paying for the printing of their speeches members of Congress could have as many copies as they desired struck off and mailed under a frank. GOES INTO MARINE GOEPS. Former Midshipman Passes Exam ination for Lieutenant. W. C. McCrone, former^- a midshipman at the Naval Academy, has passed the examination for api>ointment as a second | lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps. There are now eleven vacancies in that grade. The naval appropriations bill adds thirteen officers to the Marine Corps, so that twenty-four appointments to the lowest grade are yet to be made. These places will be given to properly qualified civilians. An examination of civilian candidates probably will be held in this city next month. BIG QROWTH IN COMMERCE. Porto Rico Making Rapid Strides in This Direction. The bureau of insular affairs Is advised that the total value of the commerce of the Island of Porto Rico for the tlscai year ended June .'10, 191& amount ed to approximately $02,000,000, com prised of $43,uu0,000 of imports and $49, OUU.tiGO of exports. The remarkable growth of the com merce of Porto Kico is Indicated by the fact that this is $1-1,1100,0<>u more than the commerce of the proceding ti?"al year. Kven a better indication is a comparison between the value of commerce for the la?t tlscai year and that of 1001, when the total value was about $17,54K>,<KK>, a gain of approximately S74.50U.000 in twelve years. Between eighty-five and ninety per cent of the total commerce represents shipments to and from the United States. LOVES COUSIN; ENDS LIFE. Twelve-Year-Old Boy Hangs Him self in Father's Shop. HOBOKEN, N. J.. August lo.?Infatua tion for his pretty twenty-year-old cousin, Mary Bussanich, is believed to have led James Bussanlch, twelve years old, to commit suicide by hanging in his father's carpenter shop today. The young woman herself found the body when she was searching for the boy to take him home. For some time the boy had displayed a violent liking for the cousin, and no amount of talking would restrain him from a display of his infatuation, which she I tried to repel. Paris Drivers Object to Street Regulations. INSTRUCTIONS ARE PRINTED Signals, Speed and Other Phases Are Fully Covered. INTEREST IN TRIP OF CURIEUSE Expedition Will Study Fauna and Flora of Unknown Islands in Two Oceans. I t? . PARIS, August 10.?The coachmen and chauffeurs of Paris are muttering and protesting over the new series of regula tions relative to street traffic. French- j men dislike changes of any kind and it is not strange that the veteran Parisian cab drivers should grumble over any rules which pretend to tell them how they shall drive through the streets of Parts which they know so Intimately. Lrfmls Lepine, the prefect of police, has, however, become a believer in the system of the American inventor, William Phelps Eno, which has already been so success fully applied in New York and lxtndon. Each coachman and chauffeur has been given a little book dealing with keeping to the right side of the road, the rights and duties of hirers and drivers respec tively, and such questions as signals, speed and the treatment pf horses. There is also a special page devoted to the reg ulation of traffic on the world-famous avenue, the Champs Elysees. Stock Depreciates. Some alarm has been felt in France at the depreciation in the price of the national gilt-edged stock, the rente, which in 1K>7 stood at 10i>, fell to 10*.i in 11KKJ and at present is quoted at about iKi. M. Klotz, the minister of finance, in a recent speech took the opportunity of explaining this situation, at the same time declaring his entire agreement with the decision" of the senate committer on the income tax to exempt the rente from taxation. It was quite true, said M. Klotz, that government stock had everywhere fallen, but the fall was merely a manifestation of a more general depreciation of ail stock which yielded a fixed interest. There was nothing surprising in this de cline; it had been seen every time that business was very brisk and industry very active. Another consideration was that the capitalist felt the necessity of increasing his income, on account of the cost of liv ing, and this motive widened the action of the movement to which he had re ferred. It would, however, be a disastrous mis take to draw inferences prejudicial to public credit from this fall in the rente. The credit of France was today show ing its superiority, and he took that op portunity of warning Frenchmen against persistent criticism of the rente, which might have the unintended effect of fur ther depreciating it. The holder of French rentes, no 'mat ter how large his holding could realise them at a moment's notice and whenever he liked. The rente had been described as a bank note; at any rate, its hoider could convert it into cash with similar ease. Interest in Expedition. French scientific circles are greatly in terested in the expedition of the ship Curieuse, which sailed from Boulogne sur-Mer July 22, under the orders of Capt. Rallier du Baty. The expedition goes to the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to study the fauna and flora of the un known islands in those two waters, and sailed under the auspices of the ministry of public instruction, .with subsidies from the French Geographical Society and the Museum of Natural History. The Curieuse was especially built for this voyage. She is both a sailer and a motor craft As a sailer she is of the yawl rig and her forty-horsepower mofor is to be used in calm weather. Capt. Rallier du Baty has with him two young naval officers and six seamen, and has provisions for over two years, the cxpected length of the expedition. They will especially explore, to begin with, the Tristam-Oeeana islands, which, situated to the south of the Cape of Good Hope, are very little known and offer much to be studied from the an thropological standpoint. The Curieuse will sail thereafter to the islands to the north of Australia, will visit Polynesia and will finally go through the Panama canal soon after Its opening, to feturn to France by way of the Atlantic. Plate on Oldest House. A commemorative plate is about to be placed on the oldest house in Paris. Xo. 51* Rue de Montmorency in the Temple district. It Is a corner house, just off the Boulevard Sebastopol, at the junc tion of the Rue St. Martin with the Rue de Montmorency. The house, which was built in 1407 by the philanthropist, Nico las Flamel, Is now known as the Hotel Helvetia, and also as the Tiiverne Nicolas Flamel. It was originally built as a hostelry for workingmen, the revenue from whose lodging was used to pay for the food they consumed. Some years ago, when the front of the house was re stored, inscriptions were laid bare which revealed the original purposes of the building. TAFT BEATS MRS. M'CAMMON.

PARLIAMENT IS ADJOURNED Politicians Scatter and Enjoy Well ? Earned Vacation. GOVERNMENT IS ALARMED Possibility of Oil Supplanting Coal as Battleship Fuel Causes Grave Concern. BY PHILLIP EVERETT. Special Cablegram to The Star. LONDON, August 10.?Parliament has dispersed and the politicians have scattered all over the country to en joy a well earned vacation. The press political agitation goes on with nil diminished fervor and supplies the am munition during these otherwise dead months. Like a threatening cloud in the horizon hangs the chancellor's intended revision of the domesday book, but directly overhead and af fecting us all is the labor insurance law, which came partly into force a little over two weeks ago. and which will be in full force in October. Against this measure, which for campaign pur poses was originally hailed with loud cheers of welcome, even by the, most bitter opponents of the liberal gov ernment, the whole conservative press is now using its heaviest artillery. So unscrupulous has one sensational conservative paper, the Daily Mail, been in the choice of its arguments, that it has repeatedly encouraged its read ers to break the law of the land. Opposition Disappearing. Though the conservative press has succeeded in fanning up considerable bitterness among the people against the law, which keeps them out of want and insures them medical attention while they are sick, the opposition to the measure, which has be?*n praised and is being imitated all over Europe, is rapidly disappearing, and but for the I violent agitation in the press it would have disappeared entirely long before this. No vessel ever came to England in time of peace which has probably even been tha indirect cause of so much anxiety and alarm to the government as the bi? Dan ish motor ship Selandia, which arrived, here the first time four months a?o and which has just left the port of London for her second trip to East India. The success of this vessel means that oil will displace coal in the navy,- that the internal combustion engine will ban ish the steam engine, and that in a com paratively few years every battleship and cruiser in the British navy will be anti quafed and outclassed, for not only will motor battleships be less vulnerable and steered with much greater ease, but they will be able to carry heavier guns and armor, freed from the enormous weight of boilers and coal. It has not relieved the public minc|^ln England that the kaiser's friend, Herr Ballin of the Hamburg-American line, lias bought the only other large motor ship from the Danish East Asiatic Company ana that the results of all the tests which it will be put through will be at the dis posal of the German government; that in the strict secrecy of Germany's naval dockyards may be put down and fin ished motor battleships before the fact of this may become known in England Means New Navy. Just as Great Britain had to build a new navy at the time when steam re placed sails, she will have to do so again, now that oil is about to drive out coal; but while a country rich in coal, like England, had the advantage when the former change tame, she will now be se verely handicapped, because nowhere in the British empire is oil found in such quantities as will be needed before long. To the dread of not being able to get food supplies in times of war, which has long been haunting England, now comes tiie dread of being cut off from the sup ply of oil abroad which is to insure tiie lighting strength of England's float.ng line of defense. Quick and alert as First Lord of the Admiralty Mr. Churchill always is, he immediately grasped the importance of the new invention, and he was among the first to inspect the Selan dia during her tirst visit, and it is also he who has seen the necessity of appointing a royal commission to de cide what is to be done on the eve of a new revolution on sea. Another scare, and this time not a newspaper made one, has been added to the many forebodings which haunt the soul of the poor Englishman, who is asking himself if, having lost his world supremacy in sports, he is also about to lose forever his naval su premacy. Split Not Probable. A week or two ago the papers were full of statements assuring us that the government was about to fall because of a serious split in the cabinet, where Air. Lloyd-George was said to be op posing his friend, Mr. Churchill's, plan of spending much more money on the navy. The conservative press was delighted when it was rumored that the chancellor of the exchequer would rather resign than consent to any fresh taxes. Now it appears that any such rumors were unfounded, and that the chancellor is opposed only to new taxes which would principally burden the smaller incomes. The navy will be increased, as the tories have long clamored for, and new taxes will be imposed, but these will fall principally, if not entirely, on incomes of $25,000 a year and over. 1 can imagine the delight of that part of the press that has been continually shouting for increased naval expendi tures.
