This will be the logi cal onicome of the victory ol Gounaris and Illiailis in the election. However, (lie new government is placed in a somewhat uncomfortable position, for to restore tile ex-kinc will be to alien ate I' ranee and possibly Great Brit ain. The former has warned Greeco ihat it will withdraw its material and moral .support, but it is not known certainly what attitude Lloyd George will assume. The Greek newspapers favorable to Constantino assert that Great llrit ii in is willing to recognize the right of Greece to manage her own aifairs and that King George is in constant communication with Con stantino and has assented to his re turn to the throne. Of course. Khallis and bis confreres are most worried over the possible ef fect of the restoration on Greece's adventure in Asia 5Iinor. They can hardly hope to maintain their army there against the Turkish nationalists and ihe Arabs without the active co ope.ation of the entente allies, and, too. tiic.v rely on the British to sup ply tlie money needed for the occupa tion. It is said by them that Veniz elists left the treasury empty, de stroyed quantities of documents and lett Athens without Informing their successors of the state of business In the various departments. Queen Mother Olga, tbe regent, Staged a triumphal return last week tor two of Constantino's brothers, I'm ce Andreas and Prlnco Christo pher. '1 iifv were received by enthusi astic crowds and escorted to the pal ace. The same da.v the foreign news pa per correspondents made formal complaint that the press censorship was being continued and that their dtsnatches were suppressed or do laved. llhalits and Gounaris made ex planations and promised all restric tions should he removed. l'arls had press dispatches from Smyrna saving the Greek army in: Asia Minor was split into two camps, one for and one anainst Constantine, and that fighting between them al ready had broken out. Some of the troops were said to be demobilizing themselves, declaring they were done with the war against the Turks. Sunday, November 21, was a day of bloodshed and terror in Dublin. The Sinn Fein assassins early In the day put into execution a deliberate plan of murder, calling 14 British officers or former officers to their doors and shooting them dead. About sixty oth ers were wounded In these attacks. The black and tans got into action at once, making many arrests. Then they forcibly entered Croke park, where 15,000 persons were watching a football game, and. being hooted and attacked, fired on the crowd. Several score of persons were killed and many vi junded before the wild combat *.nded. Of course more murders and more re prisals followed, and the military took possesion of tlife city.

Though attacked bitterly by the op position press and members of parli ament for tlds Dublin affair as well a* for Its Irish policy generally, the government defended Its position with extraordinary tenacity, and to support it made public captured documents which were salfl to expose Sinn Fein plots for campaign of terrorism In England, including assassinations' and the destruction of property by dyna mite and tire. In the house of com mons Wednesday night Lloyd George scored a notable victory. Former Pre mier Asquitli moved a resolution ex pressing abhorrence of tbe Dublin as sassinations and condemning the re prisals and urging immediate steps to pacify Ireland. Col. John Ward by an amendment changed the. motion into an expression of admiration for the courage of the crown forces In Ireland, und this was adopted by a vote of 303 to 83, amid the cheers of the government's supporters. Ail echo of the Irish trouble was heard in New York Thanksgiving day, when an anti-English mob undertook to sack the Union club on Fifth ave nue. On the club building was flying the American flag between British and French flags,' and the manager was asked to remove the British emblem. He compiled, but later the flag was re placed, and then the mob attacked the building, breaking all its windows and destroying most of Its painting* and furnishings before the police could disperse it. The American commission on condi tions fn Ireland Is hearing many wit nesses und has naw decided to send special committee to conduct a first hand investigation. It is made up of MaJ. Oliver P. Newman of Washing ton, Rev. Dr. Norman Thomas and Arthur Gleason of New York and J. H. Maurer, president of the Pennsylvania State Federation of Labor. The row between the Western Union Telegraph company and the adminis tration has leached the acute stage. It has lo do with the laying of cer tain cables ut Blscayne bay, Miami, Ma., permission for which was grant ed some time ago. Connected with It was the attempt to land a cable from Barbados, which the Navy department prevented. The company thereupon declined to carry further messages for tbe State department at reduced'rates, and the Navy department threatened to destroy the buv cable if the con strue! Ion work was not stopped. The company applied for an injunction to restrain Secretary Daniels from In terfering with the work, and the next duy Secretary of War Baker revoked the permit for the laying of the ca bles. Tbe courts must now decide the entire mutter. f: President-elect Harding and his party landed at Cristobal on Tuesday for a five-day visit in the Canal Zone Wednesday he made a trip on the canal to Panama City and called on President Porras. Later the president crossed' into American territory! to re turn the call. Thursday Mr. Harding had a game of golf, followed by din ner with President Porras, and Friday he returned to Cristobal, whence he sailed on Sunday for Norfolk. 'A Thanksgiving day announcement was made to the effect that John D. Rockefeller had given to charities und public Institutions the sum of $63, 763,357, In memory of his late wife. The fund is being administered by the Laura- Spellman Rockefeller me morial, chartered In New York, and the beneficiaries are mostly organiza tions In the support of which Mrs. Rockefeller was especially' Interested in her lifetime. More than eight mil lions'of the fund already has been ap propriated to 22 Institutions. It Is estimated that this brings the total of Mr. Rockefeller's big gifts up to ap proximately 9475,000,000, making him the most munificent' giver, known to history.

BARTERED MILLIONS FOR DOG How Representative of British Capi talist* Made Big Fortune for His Employers. f4-»\ ^u There is a copper mountain on Prince of Wales Island. Alaska, worth millions of dollars nnd Is snid to he one of the largest single bodies of cop per ore in the world, that was "bought for a yellow dog." I Years ago a representative of British capitalists was stalled lor the winter at Fort Yukon and there met an old Alaskan prospector, who was seeking a grubstake and particularly a dog. The mountain, according to the prospector, had been worked bv the Russians In the days when Alaska was a Russian possession, and several ship londs of ore had been carried awav. The prospector got the desired dog. but lost Ins life while limiting for game. The British representative, however, did not forget the storv and later induced his backers to Invest suf ficient money to pay the expense of finding It How Pebbles Travel.

The follow ing Is an interesting explanation of the matter, given by an authoritv on ihe Bonaparte family, Edward T.eirsre, author of "The Empress Eugenie.' a book Unit aroused considerable com ment ten vi-iirs ago. According to 5!r. I.egL", three davn before Napoleon I embarked lor I.lba the creat emperor, still undecided whether he would resign himself to his banishment, was walking in th« gardens at Fontainchioau. The lHie de I'.assano was arguiiiL- that the time lor withdrawal was past and Napo leon was much excited. He saw a inld gMiiering violets anc asked for them. The boy gave their, and after a few minutes the emperoc, who had not replied to the Due. hitherto, re ran r!..-!: The accident of this occurrence is a secret hint to me to follow the ex ample of these modest flowers. Yes, gentlemen, henceforth the violet shall he the emblem of my wishes" General Bertrnnd expressed the hope that Napoleon's resolution might last longer than the flc-wers which had inspired It. The next dm* Napoleon wns seen walking about the gardens with a hunch of violets and stopping to pick some from a bed. A grenadier on guard suggested that It wonld be easier to pick them in a year's time— they would be more plentiful. In an swer to the emperor's questions the man Informed him that almost nil his comrades, as well as he. hoped he would come back from Elba before the year was out. On returning to his barracks this grenadier told his I comrades about the emperor's violets, nnd they began to call Bonaparte "Pere la Vlolette," which led to the adherents of the ex-emperor wearing the flower as a memorlnl In the spring. I INDUCING OTHERS TO TALK Why the Art of Listening Is One That Is Well Worthy of 4 1 When tills prospector learned that the representative of British capital ists was looking for iron and copper he bargained to show bun great mountain of the ore In consideration for one good dog. Acquirement. J, I It has been noted llml men who have attained great eminence were veritable interrogation marks when youngsters. They wunted to know the why and the wherefore of everything. They wanted to listen. I There Is a difference between listen ing and silence. The best listener is •.» not the person who never says a word there is an art of listening. a The expert listener guides the talker into the desired paths not only by ask ing the right questions, but by evinc ing Intelligent, sympathetic Interest and making appropriate comments. It Is tny experience savs a writer in Forbes magazine, that very few men who have accomplished big things can? talk freely about themselves or their activities. They have to be coaxed,Ms they have to be steered, thev have towsgS lie stimulated. They must have the right kind of listening. I Adolph Ochs, publisher of the Now York Times, wns once approached by an interviewer who wanted .Mr. Och9«K$0. to give an account of his career. The^sg famous publisher politely hut em phatically declined. Bv arid by, how ever, he discovered that the interview er was surprisingly familiar with hl8 life's work and, under the influence of the right kind of listening, Mr. Ochs, almost before he realized It, was talking more Intimately about himself than he had ever talked b^ fore.
