I believe tliat the majority of Belgians are of trat opinion, though there is strong opposition to such a plan from many quarters. King Leopold used the na tion's money and the nation's soldiers ti accomplish his ends there and we think that as a matter of right, since so many of our soldiers have died there, that he surrender some of his Interests in the Congo to his country as a benefit to the country as a whole."

Warren, the missing insur ance broker, continues with unabated vigor, but with no immediate results. Warren lef In the direction of Bos ton, and it is certain that he slept In that city last Thursday night, but his present whereabouts may only be con jectured from that circumstance. Chief Ii,glls has been given Instructions by G. S. Hastings, who employed Warren, to spane no expense In an effort to get Canal Boat R. J. Garrett Hit Breakwa ter In Fog Xo Horn Heard. Laden with -350 tons of coal con signed to the Malleable Iron works In Branford, the canal boat R. J. Gar rett is sunk off Savin Rock. The Gar rett was beached there last Sunday night by the tug Abram Skldmore of the Red Ball line after the canaler had hit -the rocks of the west breakwater during a fog. Captain Albert Free of the Skldmore was making for this port and says he did not hear the fog horn on Sperry right. He lost his bearings In the thick weather with the result that the Garrett struck the breakwa ter. The Skldmore succeeded In getting the Garrett Into shoal water, where she sank. The boat can easily be raised. : The mishap has called forth a pro test from tugboatmen against the In efficiency of the Sperry light for siren. Because the people of the Wood- mont summer colony complained of the racket made by the Sperry light fog siren the lighthouse department three years ago shifted the horn so that M noise was less offensive to the cottagers, but sound pilots declare that the siren Is at such an angle now that they cannot hear It In thick weather. 1 They are going on ask the light house department to reset the horn so that It can be heard more distinct Iy by pilots approaching the harbor from the westward. the embezzler.

Publicity Helps to Higher Plane of Morality. Hartford, Aug. 13. The use of money Is not the worst form of corruption of voters in the opinion of Prof. Williajn James of Harvard university, who with Miss Ida Tarbell Is the guest of Miss Theodate Pope of Hillcrest Farm, in Farmington. Enlarging on that phase of the sub ject Prof. James, in an interview, said that the ;, bestowal . of orders, medals, official positions and the social recog nition which , is accorded to certain people In order to influence their votes Is really more degrading to the indi vidual than the. acceptance of a money bribe. Ha expressed . an opinion that there -is an upward tendency in the morality of the world as regards' po litical attachment and a higher plane is being reached gradually. Prof. .James attributes this awaken ing of conscience to the influence of publicity, which Is given to the ques tionable acts of corporations and in dividuals through the press and maga zines and he feels that ,the old evil control which the corporations have on legislation 1st toslng loosened.
