Whole Field at a Glance.
Words spoken Thursday in the House of Commons by the Prime
Minister of Great Britain unexpectedly and unreservedly aligned that
government chief, with his powerful Colonial Secretary, in favor of the
revolutionizing policy of an Imperial tariff or Zollverein. All tho talk of
Chamberlain's isolation by his Birmingham declaration last week was
thus contradicted in fact, and the only? great national stronghold of free
trade for over half a century suddenly finds itself in the hands of a few
protectionists. Mr. Balfour made it clear that such a change in fiscal
policy was impelled by the logic of commercial events rather than by
any change of theory, and that the Empire could not progress unless
some scheme of favored trade relations between its components parts
were adopted. Chamberlain explained further that the proceeds of tariffs
might go to supply old adage pensions or something benefiting the masses,
thus being not protective in intention, but only incidentally so.. A general
election on this issue is foreshadowed. The Russian Minister of Interior,
Von Plehvc, has made formal denial of the massacre inciting dispatch
credited to him and taken steps against the Jew baiting press. London
Times correspondent banished from St. Petersburg. China called Wu
Ting Fang to Foreign Office.
In the same week that an English Premier abandoned free trade it
happened that a distinguished advocate of free silver in this country,
E. Benjamin Andrews, formally recanted on the ground of later evidences
as to the supply of gold. President Roosevelt's prospect of the Republi?
can nomination has been further certified by the Pennsylvania endorse?
ment and the surrender of Hanna in Ohio. The actuality and magnitude
of frauds and irregularities in the Postoffice Department have been em?
phasized by the arrest of Miller and Machen and their accessories, the end
not yet. Secretary Root acquitted Major Howzc. New thirteen district
plan of naval defense adopted.
The most impressive new factor in the threatened and partly exist?
ing paralysis of commerce and industry through the universal activities
of organized labor is the bold utterance of labor's acknowledged friend,
Clarence Darrow, at Chicago, frankly criticising the selfish purposes in
much of the union's policy. Chicago is threatened with a serious situa?
tion by the demands of culinary help and the freight handlers. Denver
trouble averted by arbitration. New York's building tie-up more com?
plete and the union leaders are taking action to show that the employers'
combination is unlawful. Baltimore machinists out. Seventy-five thou?
sand textile workers out in Philadelphia. Mine conciliation hitch.
Further war between the Pennsylvania Railroad and the Western
Union was averted by action of the Rockefellers, who have secured large
equity in the Pennsylvania. Dollar wheat predicted by American Society
of Equity. Interest rate higher at New York. Marconi Company gets
Pupin and Edison wireless inventions. American Watchmakers' Syndi?
cate bought out principal Canadian watch companies. Spring exodus to
! Alaska begun. Mexican National Railroad to have twenty years govern?
ment monopoly in its territory. Beef Trust interdicted. Texas attacked
Insurance Trust. Emerson Centennial widely celebrated. New York's
250th anniversary noted. British-American arbitration agreement pro?
posed at Lake Mohonk. Booker Washington said lynchings drive negroes
?to cities. Women get highest honors at Cornell. Presbyterian General
Assembly finally adopted Creed Revision and took steps towar?? Church
Unification. Similar tendency in other church bodies. Earthquake in
Asia Minor, causing death of 2,000 people. Disastrous tornadoes in several
Western- States. Fatal outcome of Paris-Madrid automobile race. Irish
Lad won Brooklyn Handicap in 2.052-5, a new recoid for the mile and a
. quarter.
Scientific.
DID MARS MAKE SIGNALS?
The Harvard College observatory Is said
to have received a telegTnm Thursday
fiom Prof. Perclvnl Lowell from the sta?
tion nt Flagstaff. Ariz., saying that a
large projection on Mars was found May
'26th" by Hllpper. The projection lasted
35 minutes.
A NEW DIRECTIVE FORCE.
yesterday's Public Opinion translates
from the Berlin Mechaniker the account
of a new directive force which Herr
?ruhn thinks he has discovered. It is
present everywhere, and acts on all
bodies! but is not terrestrial magnetism.
Its existence is proved In suspending a
rod of non-magnetic mntter by a thread In
Hie interior of n glass Jar. proof against
light and cnlorlc rays. When the thread
Is twisted 00 degrees the rod rotates only
BO degrees, thus showing- that a force
tends to retain the rod In a determined
position. _
WIRELESS TELEPHONIC TEST.
Within the past week or two A. Fred?
erick Collins has conducted a commer?
cial test of electrical transmission of
speech without the Intervention of wires
between ferrv boats moving In opposite

Jei-jfv' City Station of the Erie Rail
rond." According to the Scientific Ameri?
can the system consists of antennae, as
In wlreles's ' telegraphy, earth pintos, or
wnter contact, and the Instruments for
iruifunltijlng und! receiving vlbratlonsl
The flagstaff h at tho vessels' prows
served as masts for the antennae, and a
battery of fifty cells Just outside the pilot
house furnished the current. Tho ex?
periments have proved successful In spite
of difficulty In making the water con?
tact without putting the vessels In dry
dock. At present the voice Is carried a
distanc? of 1,000 feet. So fnr this wlre
I less telephone system has not been syn?
chronized.
PIGEON'S FOR GERMANY.
Aftei a long series of severe tests to
determine the advantage of carrier pi?
geons fur Intelligent service In the navy
of Germany the authorities have de?
cided to erect permanent pigeon stations
at points on the North Sea and Baltic.
It has been shown that the birds have
sufficient endurance to fly home from a
point 300 kilometers from land. The min?
imum speed likely to bo attained Is one
kilometer a minute. The messages will
he Inscribed upon thin vegetable paper
enclosed in an India rubber case and
secured to the bird's foot by means of

throe or four years, and then becomes
berodltary. It is said that tho govern?
ment hns found a safe nnd harmless
match-mnltlntr ?ubstltnte
IS TELEPATHY DEMONSTRABLE?
Prof. John Trowbrlrlge, Hnrvard's phy?
sicist, writing In the New York Evening
Post, has taken a decisive stand iignlnRt
tho generally nccepted idea that tele?
pathy is an established fnct Rclontlllc.il
ly. Furthermore, Prof, Trowbrldge Insists
?that telepathy will not be a fact "until
It has a history of rspentablo pheno?
mena." He thinks It merely a belief
without grounds that would be accepted
in a court of law or in a scientific labora?
tory.

Bonaparte's Snake Story.
Charles J. Bonaparte, of Baltimore, has
Just received from Nortre Dame Univer?
sity the Lazare medal for 1003. says the
Boston Post Mr. Bonaparte, a grand?
son of the one-time King of Westphalia,
Is a rich and philanthropic lawyer.
Ho is a Harvard man, one of the cUss
of '71. At Cnmbrldge he Is still remem?
bered for his stories. For as a youth
ho had a strange fondness for humor of
the Incredible Munchausen sort, and it
wns of this humor that his stories par?
took.
One of them concerned ? hoop snnke.
"There wns a farmer,'" young Bonaparte
would begin, who was out hoeing. He
was hoeing at the foot of a hill. All of
a sudden he heard a noise, nnd, looking
up. there was a hoop sn'ike rushing down
on him like the wind. Its tail wns' In
its mouth, and In the form of a perfect
circle the snake rolled down the hill upon
him.
"The farmer was frightened, hut he
put up a good fight. He whacked the
snake with his hoo. It let go of Its
tall then and made a bite at him, but he
?warded oft the bite with his hoe handle.
The fangs of the Infuriated reptile sunk
In the handle very deep, and the farmer,
with a heavy rock, killed the snake.
"Then ,he took up the hoe and begnn
to work. After a while ho noticed that
the handle seemed thicker than usual.
He looked at It. Actually it was swell?
ing. Yes, it wns swelling (so powerful
was the hoop snake's venom). This hoe
handle, before the afternoon was over,
had grown to the thickness of the fann?
er's leg."

THE MAN
ABOUT
Town
-BY
Harry Tucker
E wore late In getting our copy
of the Butchortown Gnzette
this week, but we have Just
learned that the editor bad been
on a temperance lecturing tour,
and had to postpone the edition
until be could communicate with his
friends in regard to bail.
Wo are happy to state, however, that
it Is now at hand, and after carefully
reading It over, wo givo tho following ex?
tracts from tho news and editorial col?
umns:
""We wish to state that wo are person?
ally responsible for everything that ap?
pears In these columns, and If anybody
don't like anything wo say, they know
where wo can be found from 3 P. M. to
10 G. M.
"A fellow sent us a letter not long
ago that would have called for gore,
but ho forgot to give his name and nd
tlross. It's a mean man who will wrlto
a letter and not plnco bis William Henry
at tho bottom.?Ed."
SOCJJ5TY.
Denis Hawkins' daughter gave a so
ctablo the other night and It was a grand
sucess from tho start. The progrnmo
opened with a gallon of whiskey, nnd
mike Whiilon tupped a keg of beor, for
a chaser. After the refreshment were
served a dog fight was pulled off In tho
back pnrlor. Tlion the musicians played
Htiuaro dances till ?lny light.
Miss llrlget Pickles won the prlzo for
being the best dancer, which wns a box
of caramels, but when tho box was opened
'twas insect powder instend of enram?is.
Tho clerk had made a mistake. The
Judge said ho would have It exchanged,
but Miss Pickles said nover mind, In?
sect powder was needed nt homo moro
than caramels: so It went thus.
NEW ARTIST.
We've got a now artls>'. it hiippeneil
this way. Wo got a one-half ton of coul
i lust week, tint of course that's nothing
strange, We ??et a one-half ton of coal
most any time from tho C, & O. yards.
When our office boy knows a thing or
two with tho ndltlnn of a bag, ,
Well, It hapened tills wny 'bout tho art?
ist. You see tho labor editor has bon do?
ing all of our rough work, such as put?
ting way coal, but had gono over on
Oregon hill to Interview Phtil Parsley,
and the office hoy was up In the alley
shootln' craps?we staked him?and there,
wan no one to call on but the artist, aniL
as It iwhs to bo expected he rira wed tho
line lit honrln', so we paid hlni what was
coming to him, which was ?IB cents und wo
showed tho nearest way to the lily set?
tlement nnd then wo shed'ed our unpack?
ed and proceded to be one oursolf.
We would have called tho poltetloal edi?
tor down to help us but ho was busy
writing nn editorial defining the differ?
ence between political healers nnd Chris?
tian .science boalar. Just then, here cuino
Buck Nickels, tho best sign painter lit
town, lookin' for a Job. Wo caught him
and now wo are show of having tho right
kind of pictures every week.
An appendix with this number tells
why tho spelling und punctuation Is not
according to that sot forth in tho dic?
tionary, It says:
"Wo find that all typewriters do not
spell nllko. Some spell with and somo ?
without. But us wo were lu a hurry, !
we liad to stand for It this week. ' Next
week wo are going to get ono with brown
cyos.
The Shrewd Manager,
It was the mitinee performance of the
play and tho audience was composed of
?tho usual crowd of gushing matinee girls,
says the Baltimore Herald.
"lire!" cried a stage hand, hoarsely.
It wns a terrible moment. Alri'Udy
faint streamers or smoke were drifting
out into the iiinll.-!i.-?? and the conse?
quence of a panic would be dreadful.
To disivilss tho audience quietly but
quickly would savo tluu viist concourse
of women.
"1 have It!" crlod tho manager, ?and.
w
In a moment ho was addressing the au-r
dlence.
? "The management lias prepared souve-.'
nlr boxes of fudge and caramels and they,:
are now being distributed to patrons In,
the lobby!"
The theatre cleared as If by magic.
Saved!
A Slight Error Corrected.
Editor of Tho Times-Dispatch:
Sir,?In Thursday's TlmeB-Dlspa-tch In s*
l?itter from a staff correspondent. Mr/
Wnlter Edward Harris, I am given thd
credit of loading Governor Montague lntti
the hunt in which he was so fortunate as"
to kill a deer. Tills is a: mistake, an atf.
that time I was at home sick and grentl-/!
disappointed that I could not pnrtlclpatalj
in the hunt. I know this mistake wa??i
unintentional on tho part of Mr. HarrU^I
and I hasten to correct it.

the election of another sheriff o. -

lively light. There are two candidates Irttj

that it Is a hard matter to pick out the?/
winner. Alec. Hamilton, who was apn
pointed sheriff upon the death of BherlffJ,
Whlttaker. Is very popular, and possesses
tho advantage of position; but James O?-*}
linger has a legion of relatives well dis-?

much of his timo In the saddle.
