O'CONNOR r Latest Novelties in Tobacco Jars and Pipe Racks at Burford's | Tolstoy Thought Ke Was | Medium of Divine Power ? ? ? I Tj PARIS. Jan. 9-One of tlio most I ? striking sentences in the diary of j Count Leo Tolstoy printed last eve - ning in The. Journal dos Debate as Ills hitherto unpublished testament, j ? but displaced by abrief formal will ? dated July l?7. 1910, in which he left * all his literary property to his daugh J ter Alexandria, reads: ? "If the people of the world wish to ? read my writings, let them dwell upon | those passages where I know the dl * vine power has spoken through mo. ? and let them profit from them through I out their lives." ? The diary is printed on the authority t of Count Sergius Tolstoy. It was writ % j, ton by liis father under date of March > ? 27. 1895. Count Leo Tolstoy asked that all re frain from saying good of him after - his death. After referring to him j i self as the interpreter of divine pow i er, he said: j "1 have had moments when 1 felt Imvself to be the medium for the ex pression of the divine will. I have . sometimes been so impure and so I subject to personal passions that the light of this truth has been obscured | by my own obscurity but, despite all, I I have served at times as the inter mediarv for this truth, and those have been the happiest moments of my life. May God will that, passing through me. these truths have not been sullied and may mankind find in them its pasture. It is only that that my writings have importance." Count Leo Tolstoy begins by saying that if lie does not make another this shall be his testament. He then re 'quests fo be burled where he dies if in a city in the least expensive cof fin and In the least expensive ceme tery. "as the poor are buried." lie continues: "Let there be no dowers, no wreaths, no discourse and, if possible, let tiie funeral take place without priests and without liturgy, but i( that is disagreeable to those who bury me, then let me bo interred with the liturgy, only as simply and cheaply as possible." After asking that announcement of his dentil appear in the newspapers and that no obituary be printed, Count Tolstoy writes at length concerning the disposition of his works. Ho pre scribes that only those of his unpub lished writings be printed which will "be useful to mankind." Ho asks his heirs to abandon to the public the right to publish his former J works?that is, to renounce the auth or's rights. After giving instructions relative to the classification of his papers by I his wife and daughters lie orders his | diaries to bo destroyed when what is worth preserving has been extract ed front them. This applies partic ularly to the journals he kepi when a bachelor, when, he says, he led th ? usual miserable life of young men without principle. Then lie adds: "After all, let my diaries remain as they arc. It may be seen from them that despite the platitude and misery of my youth God did not abandon mo. and that as I grew older I learned, however little it was, to understand and love Him." I ? CLAIMANTS TOR DAMAGES IN THE TITANIC GREAT DISASTER ' I NEW YORK. Jan. "J.-Claimants for damages arising out of the loss of the Titanic are waiting with a good deal of anxiety for the decision of two cases pending, one in the Federal and , the other in the State courts. In the: ^I former A. L. Brougham, who is attor ; ney for .Mrs. Charle- Nat sell in ;? .yTa, ? 000 suit for damages against the | White Star Line in the State court ; is appealing to tin Circuit Court of ? Appeals against the ordt r of Judge Hough holding him guilty of con | tempt of court. In the other the ? White Star Line is asking Justice B [(Amend to dismiss Mrs. Xatrh's ac 'ion. 1 On the decision of these cases par >! ticulnrlv th ? first, depends the j chances of claims nyainst the White ?| Star Line, amounting to $8,000,000 ? the fate of which is obscured by a L I cloud of law. Under the Federal Ad 1 miraltv law the White Star Line was I I | entitled to apply to the Federal courts ,; for the limitation of damages recov erable against it to the value of the I wreckage from the Titanic and the ?! passage money. As the only things " U'orn , recovered irom me Bicuumuip the life boats brought to this port - by the Carpathia the company has , claimed that it is not liable for more than $0G,000. When this claim for limitation of damages was brought before the Fed era! court Judge Hough granted the motion and issued an injunction against the starting of any damage suits arising from the disaster until the limitation proceedings were com pleted. At the same time he issued monition to all claimants to file their claims with Commissioner Gilchrist by Jan. 14. Hut Mrs. Natsch ?vas advised that while Judge Hough's actions were cor rect under the Federal law, there was doubt if the State law might not ap ply. in circumstances such as these the Britishs law known as l.ord Camp bell's act provides that all claims for loss at sea must be filed in court with in one year of the disaster. It was held that as soon as the limitation of damage proceedings were taken up by the District Court the extent and variety of the evidence to be of fered would result in a long delay. The court would have to take tes timony as to the liability of the com pany for the negligence of its ser vants. If it could be successfully JOHNSON IS NOT ONLY NEGRO IN RICH COLONY CHICAGO, Jan. 9.?The millionaire settlement at Lake Geneva had not recovered from the shock of the an - nouncemont that Jack Johnson, ne ~ gro pugilist, had purchased a iioni in their midst for his white wife, when the news came that not only Johnson but a syndicate of negroes, known as the Lincoln Social and Ath letic Club, had purchased the Judson G. Sherman home for a clubhouse. It is now said the option 011 the Sherman homestead has been taken by \V. A. Anderson, a negro attorney of Chicago, for himself "and nine others." The identity of the nine others is not made public. The Sherman homestead is one of held that the White Star management v.as in no way responsible for the speed which ('apt. Smith maintained in the vicinity of ice. it might stiil ho contended that the company was directly to blame for any disaster incurred by talcing the particular course steered by the Titanic, tin plan of her bulkheads and the lack of sufficient boat accommodations for the passengers and crew. To put in all this evidence it was asserted would undoubtedly take considerable time. So as it seemed improbable that any decision could possibly be reached b\ the Federal Court in the limita tion proceedings before the twelve months elapsed, Mrs. Natsch was ad vised to di. regard .Judge Hough's in junction and enter her suit at once. When the fact that she had done so was brought to the attention (if Judge Hough in the Federal Court, he de clared lier attorney, Mr. Bougbam, guilty of contempt of court. In this he was following a decision of the Circuit Court of Appeals, which left him no option in toe Inuiter. Mr. Boughnm then appealed to the Circuit Court of Appeals in the hope of prevailing upon it to revers? its own judgment. Moreover, in this ap peal he lioped to bring up the amount as to the law under which the amount of damages for which the White Star Line was liable was to be decided. If it is the American law. it will, with little doubt, he limited to the$9G, i 000 which the company has suggest ed is the proper sum. If it is the Brit [ ish law, then the Titanic claims will bo assessed under the act which ?makes a steamship company liable to the amount of $75 a gross ton of the } vessel lost, which in the case o fthe I Titanic would he $3,000,000. If the White Star Line can show that, though the Titanic was a Brit ish vessel, on the high seas it. i.* amenable only to the American law, it can matter little to the claimants whether they have their claims out lawed by the conjunction of Lord Campbell's act and the course of the Federal Courts or not. There would be so little to divide among them thnt ! it would hardly be worth their while to press their claims. On the other hand, if the British law on Admiralty was to prevail, the company would ho forced to pay those who prove I their claims a substantial sum. the oldest, places In the millionaire settlement. The club could not have i chosen a more exclusive spot near j Chicago. The sale was made in spite of an agreement among property owners not to sell except to such per sons as the majority of the owners shall approve. Attorney Charles French of Lake Geneva said that as soon ? lack Johnson arrived, plans wouk: ..uJe to oust him. When it later became known that not one negro but club house full of them might be disport ing themselves next summer in the water of the lake next to the private bathing beaches of the millionaires, their indignation grew. Court injunction may prevent John son from taking possession of the country place. H. MOSES IALKS ABOUT HOONAH "lioonah," said Hen:*y Moses, the oliter day, "is getting to be quite a busy burg.

Many of the Juneau fisher-1 men will undoubtedly move from Ju-i neau to Hoonah In event that a cold I torage plant is erected there first." Incidentally Mr. Moses thinks there should be a wireless telegraph station in Hoonah.
