PORTUGAL AN Political Events In United States, Englandand Mex ico Also Cut Impor- By JAMES A. EOGERTON. WHEN compared to its prede cessor 1910 was only oue of the common or garden vari ety of years. It did not dis- cover the nortb pole, It did not have a cluster of centenaries, and it did not drive Abdul Hamid from bis throne. Yet it saw the advent of the Portu guese republic, gave the house of lords a solar plexus blow in England and put the standpatters to sleep in Amer ica. These events and others entitle It to our loving regard. It also flew high in aviation—some thing over 10,000 feet, to be exact. It was an industrious year that did not aspire to be a big noise and yet got quite a little done. To put It In classi cal language, it was not much on dress parade, but was "a good booger to work." Deposing of King Manuel. In the political world the big event was, of course, the driving of King Manuel out of Portugal and the estab lishment of a republic. Compared to the magnitude of the event this trans formation was accompanied by a little bloodshed. The affair had its spice of scandal, as do most royal perform ances. It appears that a Parisian dancer of the name of Gaby Deslys took the youthful monarch's eye, with the result that Manuel spent much time in Paris and Gaby sojourned not Infrequently in Lisbon. Ordinarily this might not have excited comment, be ing quite the usual thing among kings, but inasmuch as Portugal was tired of monarchy anyway the gossip played its part. As a result Mile. Gaby will go down to history as the highest kick er on record, having kicked off a king's crown. The year beheld the accession of George V. in England, an event that had no influence politically and but little in any other way. Of far greater importance were the two British par liamentary elections, both resulting in Liberal coalition victories by practi cally the same majorities. The first of these forced through the bouse of lords the single tax budget, and the second practically sealed the fate of the peers and decreed some form of Irish home rule. Taken together these two victories constitute the most sig nal triumph for the progressive side witnessed in England since the adop tion of the reform bill. China Also Awakened. Perhaps the third event In impor tance in foreign politics was the meet ing of the Chinese senate, definitely marking the beginning of parliamen tary government In the Celestial King dom, the last great nation that had held out against the -rising tide of de mocracy. When China has a parlia ment and quits wearing pigtails the millennium wUl^te waiting just around the corner. Other notable political happenings abroad were the establishment of the bandbox kingdom of Montenegro, the fight to separate church and state In Spain, the Mexican uprising and the swallowing of Korea by Japan. The Land of the Morning Calm is being given such a touch of high life by the Japs that she is now the Land of the Morning After. We have also bad some politics at home. It is almost brutal to write about the elections of 1010, but it Is Impossible to give a full blown re view of the year without them. Dem ocratic and progressive victories were generally the result. The progressives practically doubled their representa tion in both houses and elected gov ernors in California, Kansas, Mich igan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, South Dakota, Tennessee, Wisconsin and Wyoming, although in the last named state the progressive Repub dican candidate ran on the Democratic ticket The Democrats carried the national house by about sixty, made such gains in the senate that the progressives will have the balance of power and elected governors not only in the southern states, with the exception of Tennes see, but in Colorado, Connecticut, Ida ho, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Okla homa and Oregon. This was the first time the Democrats had won such a victory in nearly twenty years. American Politics likely. Political events during the year lead ing up to the election were the Bel linger investigation, resulting In a di vided report the dismissal of Pinchot the forcing through of theTaft program in congress, the two chief items being the railroad bill and postal savings tanks the insurgent revolt in con gress, resulting in removing the speak «r from the committee on rules, en larging that committtee and making it elective by the house the return of Roosevelt from Africa amid loud ac claims and his subsequent disastrous •venture into the campaign, the trlri wf the president to Panama and tho Ktes ictical reorganization of the United supreme court due to two deaths and one resignation. The year has been the most notable AVIATORS OF A 1310 MarkTwainJolstoy9JuliaWard Howe and Edward VII. I List of Year. in the history of aviation. It witness ed the first flight over the Alps and has broken altitude and speed record* so often that the fragments are scat tered all over two continents. Flights across the English channel have be come so common that they call for only a four line item in the newspa pers. Some comparison between 1910 and 1909 may be made on the basis that the highest flight last year was something like 1,000 feet, while this year the record is 10.498 feet. As for speed, Bellnnger, a French aeronaut, flew 100 miles at a rate of eighty-six miles an hour. Aviators' Great Achievements. Cross country flights between cities have been the feature of 1910. These were led off by Paulhan going from London to Manchester. Then Curtiss flew from Albany to New York, and Hamilton sped from New York to Phil adelphia and returned in one day. THE BAR'S DEAD. TWO NOTABLE EVENTS OF 1910, THREE DEMOCRATS WHOSE GU BERNATORIAL SUCCESSES MAY HAVE NATIONAL EFFECT AND TWO AUTHORS OF WORLDWIDE RENOWN WHO WERE AMONG Later Brooklns covered the distance from Chicago to Springfield. The am bitions efforts to conduct a race from Chicago to New York and from St Louis to New York were abandoned, although large purses were offered. Neither did Walter Wellman fly •cross the Atlantic in a dirigible. That was another case of too much wind, although Wellman himself blamed it on the equilibrator. His balloon Amer ica started from Atlantic City In a fog, beat It up the coast to the neigh borhood of Nantucket, then got to go ing south, and after traveling about 870 miles and being aloft seventy-two hours the crew was picked up or, rather, picked down to the north of Bermuda. Another notable balloon voyage was that of the America II. In a flight from St Louis to northern Quebec, a distance of 1,355 miles, breaking all records. Considering the widespread activity In aviation the death list was small, yet at least four famous bird men gave their lives to the sport These were Delagrange, Johnstone, Rolls and Cha vez, the last named being dashed to death just after his thrilling feat of crossing the Alps. Many Sporting Beeords Upset. In the world of sports the Philadel phia Athletics won from the Chicago Cubs In the world's baseball champion ship. Barney Oldfleld broke the world's automobile speed record, going a mile lu 27.33 seconds. Two boxing cham pionships were settled. One of these was for the lightweight belt in whkh event Wolgast defeated Battling Nel son, and the other was the dashing of the hopes of the white race when the mighty Jeffries could not come back. The advent of Halley's comet was not exactly a sporting event In fact this eighty year visitor was anything bnt a sport, since it lamentably failed to live up to Its opportunities. If it had been on the job it might have knocked the earth halfway across the solar system and so have prevented the Democratic victory. Yet there are scientists who say that a comets head is as gaseous as a political platform promise, while its tail Is as thin as the average campaign speech. A twin performance to Mr. Halley's false alarm was Dr. Cook's confession. Either the flower garlanded doctor wus tired of hiding or be needed the money for which, it is said, he sold this latest of his literary masterpieces. At any rate, he is not now certain whether he reached the north pole, but wants the world to forgive blm the purple snows story, the wreath of roses and the good American dollars showered on him during his lecture tour. Cook Controversy Renewed. In this connection it is worthy of note that Professor Parker returned from his Mount McKinley expedition without having climbed the mountain, but bringing back photographs of the peak twenty miles away that Cook scaled and on which he took his fa mous pictures of the "top of the conti nent" Other notable miscellaneous happen ings of the year were Carnegie's ten million dollar gift to peace, followed by an American war scare the next day the census which showed that we have nearly 92,000,000 people in the United States proper and over 100,000, 000 including the outlying possessions, the pan-American congress, the con servation congress addressed by Taft and Roosevelt and the labor strikes In Philadelphia and New York. There were the usual number of fires, storms, eruptions, explosions, wrecks and other horrors. Among the most Important disasters were the flooding of Paris and Tokyo, the twen ty million dollar fire in the "White City" at the Brussels exposition, the blowing op of the Los Angeles Times and the frightful forest fires in the northwestern part of the United States. The death roll of illustrious men and women is a long one. The most cele brated of the list were Mark Twain of America, Tolstoy of Russia and King Edward of England. Two members of our supreme court. Chief Justice Ful ler and Justice Brewer four United States senators, McEnery of Louisiana, Daniel of Virginia, Dolliver of Iowa and Clay of Georgia, and one senator elect, Broward of Florida, were among those taken. Of men formerly prom inent in our public life Thomas C. Piatt David B. Hill and John 6. Car lisle were the most noted of the year's dead. Famous Women Die. Two famous American women, each about ninety years of age, were claim ed In the persons of Julia Ward Howe and Mary Baker G. Eddy. Other well known Americans who passed away were Louis James, the actor John La Farge, the artist O. Henry, the short story writer Solicitor General Bowers and Octavo Chanute, the man who In structed the Wright brothers In avia tion. Besides Edward VII., two foreign rulers that died were President Montt of Chile, who had just finished a visit to this country, and King Chulalong korn of Slam. Two other foreigners famous in fields of learning were Gold win Smith of Canada and Dr. Robert Koch of Berlin. Even with this extended list the nat ural deaths hardly kept pace with the political fatalities. As a solace, how ever, we have In place of tho fallen a cluster of brand new or freshly elect ed governors, among the number being Woodrow Wilson, John A. Dix, Simeon E. Baldwin, Eugene N. Foss, Frederick W. Plalsted. Judson Harmon, Chase 8. Osborn. Walter Roscoe Stnbbs and Hi ram W. Johnson. Who knows but that some of these may be names to conjare with In coming years? 1 ±ii£S&^ BISMABCK DAILY TRIBUNE CEMENTHIGHWAY FOR THE NATION ColoradoanEvolves Good Roads Plan Costing $50,000,000. GOVERNMENT PAYS ONE-HALF 8tatei to Pay Remainder and Denver to Be Radius With Roads to Great Lakes, Gulf of Mexico and Pacific Ocean—Reduction of Railroad Rates Qne Benefit A system of national highways ra diating frpm Denver to the ports on the great lakes, the gulf of Mexico and the Pacific seaports of San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle is the plan outlined by J. Brisben Walker, presi dent of the Transcontinental Highway association, before the Colorado con servation commission recently. By the building of such a system of highways, says Mr. Walker, the cost of freight and passenger transportation on existing railway systems would be cut in two through competition. The conservation commission unani mously indorsed Mr. Walker's plan and passed a resolution urging the national legislature to take favorable action upon it The highways are to be built of ce ment, asphalt or other durable ma terial, one-half of the cost to be borne by the government because of the value of the highways for military purposes and one-half to be borne by the states traversed by the highways. These states include Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Colo rado, Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, Arizo na and Utah. Five Thousand Miles For $50,000,000. As to cost, Mr. Walker figures that 5,000 miles of highway could be built for $50,000,000. This is for the first strip twenty feet wide. With the gov ernment paying half this would leave $25,000,000 to be divided among six teen states, an average of $1,500,000 each. Paid for In thirty year 5 per cent bonds this would be no burden, Mr. Walker says. Eventually the first strip would be widened until separate thoroughfares were provided for freight and passenger traffic. To show how passenger fares would be cut Mr. Walker takes as a basis a ninety mile highway between New Tork and Philadelphia on which twen ty passenger touring cars are operat ed. In this connection he says: Those familiar with automobile build ing would place the cost of a six cylinder twenty passenger car, if sold In large numbers, at $2,000. It would be a very reasonable estimate to place the life of the car. making a round trip daily, at one and one-half years, 547 round trips, or 1,094 single trips, which would bring the cost of car to $1.82 per trip. For so short a life re pairs need not be estimated at over $182 per year, or 50 cents a day. This would give the following: Gasoline $2-40 O Chauffeur 1-60 Rental of garage, lights, heating, etc. .25 Cleaning 20 Cost of car 182 Repairs -50 TOtal 16.92 One Passenger, 34 Cents. For twenty passengers the cost would amount to 34~ cents each per trip, or, allowing for the average six vacant seats each trip, the cost for the fourteen passengers would be 49.4 cents, or less than one-fourth the low eat fare of the Pennsylvania railway for the same trip. This wonld permit owners of automobile cars to charge 100 per cent profit and even then cut the lowest price of the railway in halt For fifty tons of freight handled by two engineers for sixteen hours, a fifty horsepower traction engine at four miles per hour the figures would be: Cost of fifty horsepower traction en gine, 0,400 life of same, calculated at three yeara' service, amounting to, per diem USD Cost of wagons capable of moving fifty tone, $2,200 tour years' life, per diem LSI Wages of two engineers, working eight hours each, at $3 6.00 Fuel, oil, etc., for IS hours 460 Repairs on engine, estimated at $&• per annum Total for sixteen hours IU.M OPERA HOUSE FOR KAISER. Finest and Moat Luxurious In World Is Planned, The German emperor, it la said, la seeking a site in Berlin for the erection of the finest opera house In the world. It will be a luxurious building, and eight of Germany's leading architects are said to be at work upon Its plans. Three thousand persons will be ac commodated In the auditorium, while the stage will be 100 feet In width and ninety feet in depth. For the use of the royal family there will be a box capable of seating eighty persons. There will also be spacious dressing and retiring rooms for the use of royal visitors. The cost of the whole scheme will be very great so great It la reported, that the actual sum has been withheld from the German public. Seek Radium In Water.

Will Travel by "Automobile and Seat 1,500 Persons. A perambulating theater fitted with the latest scenic appliances and seat ing 1,500 persons will take the road in France. As in the days of Moliere, performances will be given wherever there is a favored spot, but instead of the chariots and horses there will be a train of eight automobiles, draw ing twenty-one cars. The idea originated with Firmln Ge mier, a well known Parisian theater djrector, and it became public through the fine arts report of Deputy Paul Goncourt The following details of the scheme were announced: "Local and provincial theaters usu ally are insufficient for fine dramatic productions. Moreover, many com munities have no theaters. The whole Idea is based on decentralization and the wish to carry culture to the prov inces. I intend to give the classics and the best modern plays. When I arrive at a town I shall erect a tent with a stage, boxes, orchestra seats, drops, wings, scenery—everything com plete, including a central lighting and heating plant Thanks to a new sys tem, the lighting will be as good as In the best theaters. "Special new scenery will be pre pared for every play. There will be twenty actors, directed by myself, and I shall employ forty machinists. We shall sell seats from 20 to 60 cents apiece and will spare no pains to make the productions perfect in every way. We cannot travel fast—perhaps only six miles an hour—but we shall at least travel surely. We expect a great success." PARIS LOSES EXQUISITE. Andre Fouquleres to Decorate Court of Kapurthala. Paris, it is said, is to lose one of her chief ornaments. The modern Beau Brummel of France, the most exqui site of twentieth century dandies, the spoiled arbiter of the Paris drawing room and the country house, is about to leave the scenes of his triumphs. M. Andre Fouquleres, to whom this Inade quate description applies, has suc cumbed to the blandishments of the maharaja of Kapurthala. Not long ago the maharaja robbed Europe of one of her most beautiful daughters in the person of a Spanish dancer whom he placed high among his wives. And now he is going to take away one who in inventing ec centricities of dress and above all In the management of a cotillion defied competition. The maharaja has said to him, so rumor has it: .fa "You have nothing more to do In this Parisian rabble of society that has lost all respect for hierarchy and for deli cacies of tone. You are much too dis tinguished and refined for France, and I ask you to come with me to preside over and organize the fetes that will be given at the marriage of my daugh ter." And the invitation has been accepted. COLLEGIANS WILL FLY. Harvard and Columbia Arrange New Sport Competition. The first intercollegiate aviation con test will be held next spring between Harvard and Columbia at Belmont park. The Harvard Aero club sent a. challenge for a gliding contest to the Columbia station of the aeronautical reserve recently, and the Columbia students have obtained the permission of the faculty committee on organisa tion to go ahead and arrange for the contest It is expected that the Columbia club will insist on motor driven contriv ances. If this suggestion Is adopted the Co lumbia students will Immediately be gin work on a biplane Philip W. Wilcox, who built a biplane at Colum bia a year ago, will have supervision of the construction of the machine, bnt all the work will be done by students. MAN WILL FREEZE TO DEATH Or. Wlley'e Theory of Ultimate ex tinction of Life. The earth is slowly'cooling and man will freeze, not starve, to death in the distant future, according to Dr. Har vey W. Wiley, chief chemist of the department of agriculture, who forsook the subject of germs and pure foods long enough to address the Secular league at Washington. However, he added, there will be fuel for at least another million yeara "In the future," be said further, "the air will furnish heat fuel and power, and companies will be formed for uti lising It This is not a theory, bnt an actuality of the future baaed, upon ac tual conditions and natural laws." FRANCE HAS WAR CENSUS. Oan Requisition All Aeroplanes, Heroes and Automobiles. The French government baa already taken a census of all the horses and automobiles in France so. that it can requisition their services In case of war, and it is now drawing up a law to provide for a census of aeroplanes so that It will be able to can upon all the monoplanes and. biplanes In the country If need arises.

BALLOON RECORD FOR YACHTSMAN Leroy Taylor ef Now York After Distance Mark. WACO, TEX., TO MMHUTTJUL Possible to Cover Air Line of 1,800 Miles In Forty Hours—Leo Stevens, Professional Aeronaut, to Accom pany Clubman to Beat Count de la Vaulx's Flight of 1,193 Miles. Hope of breaking the world's record for balloon flights, which has stood for ten years, possesses Leroy Taylor, a member of the New York Yacht the Larchmont Yacht, Lambs and other clubs, and he will try to bring the trophy to America by a flight to start within the next few weeks from Waco, Tex. His associate will be Lee Stevens, a well known professional balloonist. The balloon is to be the largest spher ical one ever made. Waco was selected as the starting point after much consideration, in which the meteorological observations of the weather bureau figured largely. Favorable wind currents will give a balloon ascending there the longest possible flight in the general direction of New York. Won't Face Ocean Dangers. Waco is sufficiently inland almost to obviate the danger of being blown out to sea. There are few mountain ranges to be passed, and these are of secondary importance so far as size and effect upon winds are concerned. Again, Waco Is within the zone of comparatively steady blowing winds at certain seasons of the year. It is in the hope of getting one from the south west that the flight has been timed for January. The balloon will carry water and provisions for a month. This Is con sidered essential, as long stretches of desert land must be passed over and the aeronauts may have to land where water and food are unobtainable. Taylor Is an enthusiastic amateur at the balloon game. He has been In sev eral competitions and recently flew from Pittsfield, Mass., to a point near there in a snowstorm. He helped or ganize the fliers among members of the New York Yacht, Larchmont Yacht and Lambs clubs who are In terested In balloons or aeroplanes. The present record for length of flight Is held by Count de la Vaulx, who with St Victor rode from Vin cennes, France, to Korostychew, Rus sia, 1,193 miles, in October, 1900. They were not in the air long enough, how ever, to give them .the endurance rec ord. This Is held by Clifford Harmon, who In October, 1910. in a flight from St Louis remained aloft for forty eight hours and twenty-six minutes, though he covered nowhere near the distance the Frenchman did. Just Missed Records. In the same month Hawley and Post made their sensational flight from St Louis. It will be remembered they were lost to the world for about a week then their safe landing was re ported from the Canadian backwoods. It was established that they had re mained up aloft for forty-five hours and fifty-six minutes and had covered 1,171 miles, both performances just abort of world's records. On an air line the distance from Waco to New York Is approximately 1,800 miles, which under highly favor ing conditions could be covered readily In less than forty hours. This would mean traveling at an average speed of a little less than forty miles an hour. The balloon now being built Is being developed along lines that it la hoped will permit It to remain aloft from sixty to seventy-two hours. The ordinary duration of a balloon's gas charge la about forty-eight hours. The craft will take months to build. It will bave a lifting power of 13,000 pounds. As the bag and basket car rying two men and folly equipped will weigh about 6,000 pounds, this will allow 8,000 pounds of ballast The bog la built of two thicknesses of spe cial linen, with robber between. It has been found that linen Is far bet ter for such use than silk, not alone on account of its greater toughness, bnt because the silk Is a too ready con doctor for electricity, with ita attend* ant danger to the gas. WONDERFUL SCHOOL RECORD. Pour Children ef One Family Punctual Per Thirty-two Years. Few families can boast of the school attendance record of the four chil dren of J. B. Dennett, assistant over seer of Newchurch, Isle of Wight, who have been connected with the local school for seventeen yeara. They have attended for an aggregate of thirty-two years and one month without missing a single attendance. The record la aa follows: Harry Dan natt, Ave years and five months Char He, ten years and Ave months Nellie, seven yeara and ten months, and Ada, eight years and five months. The school Is about two miles from the family's residence, and the distance traveled by the quartet In journeying to and from school exceeds 80,000 Smooth Running Cars Soon?

A Spanish railway seems an excel lent place for a rest cure. "I remem ber," writes Mr. S. L. Bensusan, "when going on a short journey in Andalusia, the train that carried me stopped at a short junction. While we were at rest here, after some hours of travel at the rate of at least twelve miles an hour, the driver uncoupled bis engine and proceeded down the line with it in the direction we were not to take. "The. passengers walked contentedly up and down, smoked countless ciga rettes, ate oranges, resisted the impor tunities of beggars. At last I becanr uneasy and asked where the drlv had gone. 'Pedro has run down tL line on his engine to take a birthday gift to bis mother, who lives over there,' explained the station master 'he is indeed a good son and will not trust his parcel to the post Spain is foil of thieves.' And when the good son had come back from his mission he restored the engine to its proper position and we re-entered the train, which went on Its journey after three quarters of aa hour's delay."—London Graphic. The Monkey and the Book. A story is told of an eminent nat uralist (I forget his name) who was hoptnjg to develop the-intelligence of a monkey to whose education he was devoting himself. One day he saw with delight that the monkey was Bit ting at the other end of the room turn ing over the leaves of a valuable book on entomology and looking at the plates with apparent interest But on going nearer he saw, with dismay, that the monkey was turning over the plates in order that when he came to a particularly large beetle or butterfly, he might pick It out and eat it As the paper could not have had a nice taste, I think he may have been actu ated rather by the fun of the thing than by a mere depraved appetite. Perhaps he was verifying the like method of learning among the philoso phers of Laputa.—London Spectator. Fame and the Editor. Fame, so difficult a possession to ob tain, lies oftener than one usually thinks in the power of the press. Oscar Browning in his interesting "Memories of Sixty Years" tells how Fox, then editor of the Monthly Re pository, settled the fate of Robert Browning's "Pauline" when it first ap peared by the mere word "balderdash." The explanation given is that "a sin gle line was required to complete the page, and the editor, taking up the first book on whkh he could lay his hand and thinking it insignificant and pretentious, described it as I have stat ed above." Oscar Browning declares that tho poet said "that by this accident his public recognition had been delayed for twenty years." Napoleon's First Leva. The little French town of Auxonne Is not associated in the popular mind with Napoleon bnt, as Miss Betham Bdwards reminds us in "Unfrequented France," he spent some years of his cadetshlp there.
