SMALL SPAIN May Embarras Morcco Negotia tions With France versy between King Alfonso and his aunt, the Infanta Eulalia, has caused profound sensation throughout S;>ain. It threatens in fact to em barrass the negotiations between Spain and France concerning the Morocco question, which are due to begin to-morrow. Official circles assert that the ' French press has misrepresented the fact s and the text of despatches which have been exchanged between ' the King and the Infanta, while the discussion of the incident in which the Spanish inquisition united in support of the King, but fears that the controversy will result in an un just attack on Spain as an enemy of progress and civilization. The Republican press, on the con trary, applauds the decision of the Infanta which it calls "a virile and audacious act of rebellion." The cabinet has considered the controversy and it is understood tfeat, it supporis the king and is consider ing the cutting off of the Infanta's pension of $50,000. The Infanta Eulalia had long been on bad terms with Queen Maria Christina. When Alfonso ascended the tnrone conditions improved, but they became worse again when the Infanta's son, Alfonso, wedded the - Princess of Coburg without the au thorization of the King, for which -he was deprived of hi s title and ex pelled from the army. He was recently reinstated in the ranks and sent to Melilla on the understanding that his title would be restored to him, and the incident forgotten as soon as he had dis tinguished himself.

NEED THE MONEY;" EAT ALUM FOR PAY PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Dec. 7.— Twelve University of Pennsylvania medical students who "need the money" have put their bodies in the care of the United States Govern ment for experimental purposes and formed an eating squad which meets morning, noon and evening to eat Governemnt food, prepared with dif ferent kind s of alum, in order to test the effect it will have on their 'systems. The experiments are being carried out by Dr. Alonzo E. Taylor of the Remsen Board, assisted by fourteen Government chemists. The squad has been eating alum for some time and shows no ill effects. Its mem bers will continue on the Govern ment's diet until June. The mem bers of the squad receive their board and $5 a week. The danger of being injured by the food amounts to practically noth ing, as each man is watched by Dr. Alfred Stengle, the physician ap pointed by the Government to watch out for the men. They are exam ined almost daily. On the squad of twelve men there are two "controllers," who eat the same food without the alum. None of the twelve men know who these two men are. Dr. Taylor says he does not want the psychic element to enter into the experiments. The re sults of the experiments will not be known for a year. o LYNCHBURG WANTS WOMAN'S SCHOOL LYNCHBURG, Va., Dec. 7. —State Senator H. C.

Slocum, on which t 1,000 lives were ldst a few , ago, now lies at the bottom of sea. After the steamboat was ed to the water's edge the hull was converted into a barge and given the name of Maryland. Today a report was received here that the barge could not stand the gale that blew off the New Jersey coast yes terday and sank somewhere in the vicinity of Sandy Hook. The crew of five men were taken off by a tug. The Maryland wa s valued at $20,000 and there was no insurance. Bad luck pursued the hull of the Gen. Slocum. Peter Hagan, the owner of the ill-fated hull, said she was always getting into trouble. "Even on this trip we had to put in a new rudder before she went to sea," said he. "I am glad she's gone. Of course, • I didn't like to throw $20|,000 into the sea, but now that she's gone I have no regret."
