George Nox McCain, tha wldely
Itnown traveler and newspaper corre
spondent, who baa visited pretty much
all sections of three continents. In an
Interview yesterday while In Wilming
ton, said concerning the Kingston, Ja
maica, horror:
"There is one great loss which
Kingston and Jamaica, and indeed the
entire West Indian Islands have suf
fered. of which no notice has been
taken thus far. It Is the destruction
of the Institute of Jamaica. It occu
pied a two-etory brick and stone build
ing on what Is the edge of the devas
tated 'district. It Was undoubtedly de
stroyed by the earthquake or fire.
"The Institute building was a store
house of Jamaican history. Thousands
of volumes, many of them that can
never be replaced If destroyed, lined Its
shelves. Its walls were covered with
rare engravings and oil paintings of
former governors and famous men of
the Island. Some of these paintings
dated back for 150 years, while o d
engravings taken from crude nnd early
sketches of towns In Jamaica dating
back 250 years to the first English oc
cupation, were among the quaint and
Valuable po. sessions of the Institute.
"In addition to those the Institute
building was also something of a mus
eum. There were relies of the Abori
gines., the Arrokvaks. In the shape of
«i ui'wv household uUmalls. weapons and
Implements of agilen lure. There were
ghasliv trophies ef the duys when the
Bpunlsh Inquisition flourished on the
Island In the shape of thumb-acrows.
Spiked boots aid other Implémenta of
torture. Indeed the Institute was not
only a phllosoiJilcnl and historical In
stitution but It was a museum con
taining relics Unit covered every period
of tho Island's history.
"I notice by one of the cablegrams
that the earthquake displayed freaks ns
striking ns some which I saw in San
Francisco.'' continued Mr. McCain.
"Anybody who has visited Kingston
wl l recall the beautiful statue of
Queen Victoria. Tho earthquake did
hot demolish the statile but turned It
nrounrl or reversed it. The earth evi
dently had that peculiar twisting mo
tion which character!ted the movement
of the surface ln San Francisco. With
in a space of one hundred feet on Gol
den Gate avenue ln San Francisco I
Saw two houses which met a directly
opposite fate. One was twisted with
a corksorew-llko motion, while the
other simply dropped down four feet
Into a gigantic fissure in tho earth.
"I am ( b e gi nning to think that I am
Something of a hoodoo. If auch a thing
exists. In the earthquake line," said
Mr. McCain with a laugh. "It was just
hne year and two days before the San
Francisco earthquake and Are that I
spent some time In that d'y. It was
just one year and two week before
the Kingston earthquake that I was
In that city. However, as I visited a
dumber of West Indian Islands on (hat
nnd otiher occawlon* and no earthquake
hurricane followed I guess the
charge of hoodoo will not hold good
against me."

SIX CENTS FOR
DEATH OF CHILD
Amazing Example of the Dis
tinctions Made By New
York Law
CHILD'S FATHER IS DEAD
NEW YORK, Jan. 21— 1 Six cents for
the life of a child.
This Is tho story of the Inexorable
tow. The Supreme Court has just
handed down a decision In which a
widowed woman, very .poor. Is made
the victim of a combination of the
most extraordinary circumstances
which perhaps court history can dis
close.
It Is the fault of the law and not of
the courts. But 'because of the law
and tho facts Involved, Mrs. Norah
Farrell was deprived of a substantial
verdict for th" loss of her four-year-old
boy, and is near starvation In her
home, at No. 404 West Thirty-eighth
street. compelled to toll hard to sup
port her two remaining little one*.
And these ere tho facts;
Had Mrs. Farrell's husband died be
fore her little boy Bernard was killed
by being nun over by a 'brewery wagon
the Jury would have 'been authorized
to award the mother an amount not
exceeding the $10,000 for whloh she
asked.
Delay in tha Court.
And. had the Supreme Court calendar
not 'been 10.000 oases behind, the Far
rell case would have 'boon reached dur
ing the lifetime of the child'» father
and the same result» aceompllrihed.
It was Mr». Farrell'» 111-lnek to henr
Supreme Court Justice Dugro ad mon is ,1
tho Jury that a verdict for more than
six cent» would not be permissible in
law.
The Justice, who bad been n
Jurist for twenty year«, admit» tha,
the predicament of Mr». Farrell is un
precedented In the history of the
counts of Now York county.
The Farrell boy wa* killed on Sep
tember S. 1903, by a wagon belongin'?;
to 'M. Groh'* Son», in front of his homo,
then family then living In more pre
tentious apartment» on West Thirty
ninth street.
The child's father In
stituted eult for damages.
Mr. Farrell died during the holidays,
end the case was prosecuted by the
widow a* administratrix. Five wit
nesses swore that tho brewery driver
was guilty of negligence, and after the
Justice hud denied the defendant's
motion to dismiss the complaJnt, the
ca»o went to the Jury. The defendant
corporation Interposed no defence. Tho
plaintiff had established a clear case.
No Compensation for Grief,
The Justice charged the Jury to limit
Us verdict. If one (Wa* forcomlng. to
six cents, »toting that the mother
could only recover for "pecuniary In
juries."
The Justice referred to section 1904
of the Code of Civil Procedure, which
rends as follows: !
"The damages awarded to the ptaln
tIff may be saich a sum as the jury
upon a writ of inquiry, or upon a trial
or where Issues of fact are trier! with
out a jury, the court or referee deem.*
to be fair and Just compensation for
the pecuniary Injuries resulting freir
tho decedent'» death to the person nt
persons for whçre benefit the action Ir
brought."
The New York Act and some other:
which have been modeled upon It re
quire the damages to be assessed with
reference to tho "pecuniary" Injurie«
The Justice stated that the standard
text-book* on the subject did not per
mit the awarding of compensation to a
mother for the sorrow und grief oc
casioned by the death of her child.
Tiffany's text-book says:
"The Jury are confined to th<
pecuniary loss, and nothing can be al
lowed by way of solatium for the grief
and wounded feelings of the benoflej
arte» or to compensate them for thr
loss of society or of companionship
which they have suffered."
But If the case had been tried in the
lifetime of the child's father the Jury
could have speculated us to the prob
able length of life of the fattier and
compensate him for the child's death.
A child Is looked upon as an expense
to a parent Instead of a source of In
come until the child becomes old
enough to work, and from that time
until he becomes 21 the father 1» en
titled to the child's earnings. The
mother of the ohild has no claim in
law during the life of the child's father,
and She was compelled to prosecute the
case a* the administratrix of her hus
band rather than as the mother of the
child.
Mrs. Farrell arid: "1 thought I
would get a little money to keep my
self and two children out of poverty.
I cannot understand such laws ns
these. I cannot understand why there
la no appeal or redress for me."
DR. CHANDLER
DEFEATS HIS WIFE
When Dr. Sat thin Chandler of Phlla
dcSphla, and his wife, Elizabeth 8.
Chandler, agreed to disagree In 1904,
a separation contract was drawn where
by the wife was to receive a weekly
allowance, as well as the doctor's house
tn this city, which she agreed to sviU to
him. He was also to have a part of
the rental.
But Mrs. Chandler did not keep her
part of the agreement, and as a result
which
Such a de
I vision was made by Judge Carr in Com

FOOD LAW TO

Government Will Appoint In

WASHINGTON, Jan. 21—One million
dollars a year will he the cost to the
United States Government In Ha en
forcement of the nurc-food ilaw enacted
by Congress at Hs laat session.
An elaborate scheme of Inpectlon has
been mapped out by Secretary Wilson
and Prof. Wiley, the chemist whose
discovery that strawberry Jam consist
ed of timothy seed and glucose, with a
•dash of red flavoring material, and the
other frauds brought on the agitation
which resulted In the pure-food Jaw of
the last session,
chemists are to be appointed, who will

not a can of pea* has been doctored

Inspector in Each State.
It 1» the Intention of the Department
to assign an Inspector to each State.
Rome of the larger States like New
York end Pennsylvania will have two
Inspectors each. They will be known
as State Inspectors, although of course
they will have no connection whatever
with the State officials. Each man will
be charged with the supervision of
food-stuff entering Into Inter-state
commerce nnd offered for sale In fils
territory. •
A series of laboratories Is to be built
In which the chemists will analyse
canned goods of all kinds, nnd deter
mine whether or not the provisions oi
the law are being lived up to. Rome
of these workshop* are already In oper
ation. When the Government force has
been developed to It* full strength,
there will be laboratories at Boston,
Now York, Philadelphia, Cincinnati,
Chicago, 8L Louis, New Orleans, San
Francisco and Denver.
The cost of maintaining these Insti
tutions will be considerable, because
high-priced scientists avili be in charge
of each, with a staff of wellt-pald as
sistant«. All these expenses will run
the total cost of administering the
purc-food law up to $1.000.000 a year.
FOODS Undergoing Strange tTbanges.
Professor Wiley finds that some of
the standard article* of food have been
undergoing strange changes ln colo»'
during the last few months. Canned
and 'bottled fruits nnd vegetables are
presenting a pale and generally wash
ed-out apenrnneo since the Government
put Ihe ban on anallne dyes and harm
ful preserving preparations. Tomato
catsup la now several shades lighter
than the rich rod concoction formerly
displayed on the shelves of the grocers.
String beans and peas are resuming
their normal color, and are no longer
the sttartlngly brilliant green which the
copper treatment Induces. These are
some of the reform* brought about by
the new law.

PRIESTS MAY HAVE WIVES
Bishop Declares Catholic Church Will
Receive Married Episcopal Clergy.
MILWAUKEE. Jan. 21.—Archbishop
Mossmer. of the Milwaukee Archdio
cese, to-day declared that tho Catholic
Church doubtless will provide soon a
means for tho conversion of Episcopal
priests and their admission Into the
Catholic priesthood without their be
ing required to give up the wives per
mitted by the Anglican Church.
He said, tn discussing, the proposed
abrogation of the ru'e making priests
celibates, that this was an apostolic
legacy, but that conversions of notable
Anglican prlesrtf were so numerous that
the Church would probably find means
for them to keep the wives they are
