KAISER AIMS AT GERMAN UNITY ANXIOUS TO ABOLISH THE TOY MONARCHIES Twenty Little Rulers Have 115 Palaces Set Apart for Their Accommoda tion, Which Is a Heavy Bur. den on Taxpayers Special Cable to The Herald. BERLIN, Oct. 2S.— Kaiser Wllhelm's latest and most startling ambition is said to be that of forming himself into an imperial unity by gradually wip ing out the expensive toy monarchs of the other German states who try to com pete with him in royal dignity, thus transforming Germany into one united country with one centralized adminis trative system. The centralizing ten dency of the age is evident among the courts of Germany, as in every sphere of life, and the kaiser eventually may absorb all the small and weak states. If the kaiser has been less active in this direction than he might have been, his lack of initiative probably has been due to considerations of self-preserva tion. Although the little states of Ger many have been governed badly for centuries, there is no doubt that the existence of so many courts brings the monarchical idea home to many Ger mans to whom it might otherwise be foreign. The little German courts are bulwarks of political conservatism nnd serve to defend monarchical institutions against the growing forces of social democracy. If the kaiser were to sweep them all away he would create a precedent which the social democrats »t some future time ir.isht utilize to abolish the Prussian and German mon archy. If, however, the smaller states grad ually can be absorbed by Prussia with out open blows at monarchical insti tutions, there is no doubt the kaiser will welcome the change. He is fre quently Impatient of the necessity of sharing his supreme authority with the little sovereigns who occupy the thrones of the smaller states of the empire. On various occasions the kais er has made them feel they are his vassals and has treated them as sub ordinates, a procedure which some of them have resented keenly. Apart from the kaiser there are twen ty independent monarchs in Germany. Three kings, six grand dukes, four dukes, and seven reigning princes. Some of these state are so small that the maintenance of their sovereign rights ■is an absurdity In the twen tieth century. Their existence dates from the time when central Europe ■was dotted with large numbers of small fuedal states, each ruled by its own petty monarch. The cost of maintaining all these monarchies with their courts and households is a heavy financial burden for the German nation. The king of Bavaria receives an income of $1,500,000, the king of Saxony an Income of $1, 000,000, and the king of Wurtemberg an income of $600,000 per annum. The grand duke of Baden, the grand duke of Hesse, the grand duke of Mecklen burg-Schwerin, the grand duke of Saxe-Weimar, and the duke of An halt each receive incomes varying from $250,000 to $300,000 a year. The duke of Saxe-Meiningen, the duke of Saxe-Co burg-Gotha, and the duke of Saxe-Al tenburg receive Incomes varying from $150,000 to $200,000, and the remaining German monarchs receive an average of $125,000 per annum. The bare cost of the monarchs alone thus amounts to something between $6,000,000 and $7,000,000 per annum. In addition to the monarchs it must be remembered that there are twenty prime ministers, all drawing salaries from the public revenues for their ser vices to the different states. There are twenty royal households, with several hundred highly salaried ornamental of ficials and eighteen parliaments, the members of which receive payment from the public exchequers. The twenty monarchs between them own 115 royal palaces which, together with the three dozen palaces owned by the kaiser as king of Prussia, makes a total of 150 palaces dotted all over Germany. These palaces are surround ed by parks with a total area of 25, 000 acres, all of which, of course, is lying wasted so far as productive pur poses are concerned. In the smaller German states the cost of maintaining the monarch amounts to about $2 per head, of family, a heavy burden on a population which is by no means af fluent. NEAR LONDON, YET PAGANS .The Vicar of Hook Abandons His Flock In Despair and Goes Abroad Special Cable to The Herald. LONDON, Oct. 28.— The Rev. W. M, Dlngwall, vicar of Hook, near Kingston on Thames, has thrown up the care of his parish and fled In despair to seek rest In the West Indies, because his people are such pagans. The village, in fact, is known as Pagan Hook because the people will not go to church. Before sailing this week the broken hearted vicar said: i "I have worked hard for nearly three years, and it seems in vain. I have spoken to them personally and I have implored them from the pulpit, but they will not come to church; no effort, either spiritual or material;' no concert, whether of high class or extremely popular, and no brancn of church ac tivity that I have been able to devise or carry on will induce the people of Hook to come to church. "There is a population of about 1700. but few attend church and these are not Hook people. In fact It is a village that is spiritually asleep. The people do not go to non-conformist places of ■worship, nor do they fro golfiing or automobiling. They have simply spirit ual things." HARRIED BY BRIGANDS Spanish Provinces Where Farmers and Merchants Are Boldly Plundered Special Cable to The Herald. MADRID, Oct. 28.— A band of eight brigands, well mounted and armed to the teeth, are spreading terror through the provinces of Seville and Cadiz. Senor Romero, a landed proprietor, was robbed and killed by the band near Antequera, Senor Blazquez, another landowner of the same town, was at tacked, and his servant, who attempted to defend him, was killed on the spot. Senor Blazquez thereupon surrendered all he had and was allowed to go. A few days later the brigands stopped and bound eighteen farmers, merchants and cattle dealers, who were on their way to the fair at Villamartin, and robbed them of over £1,000. As they galloped away from their victims the brigands threatened to return and «hoot them If they cried for help. PART Ilk EMPEROR OF GERMANY CHARGED WITH STEALING A BOX OF PRAYER BOOKS CURIOUS CRIME LAID AT DOOR OF YACHTSMAN Gifts for Natives of Tristan Group He Is Said to Have Dumped Into the Sea — Cabin Boy Dressed in Skirts Intended for Tristan Girls Special Cable to The Herald. LONDON, Oct. 28.— 1t would be dif ficult to Imagine a more plquantly in adequate situation than that provided at Bow street yesterday, when a bold maritime adventurer was charged with stealing a box of prayer-books on the high seas. The defendant was Thomas Caradoc Kerry, owner of the famous yacht Pan dora, who took the King's mails to the remote Islands of Tristan Da Cunha, and is said to be the only Englishman who ever crossed New Guinea from sea to sea. His address is given as the Royal Colonial Institute, Northumber land avenue. To the eye of romance it seemed that if a man with such a career ever had to answer a charge of misconduct it should be piracy at the least. Instead of that it was a charge of stealing a box of missionary prayer books. Mr. Kerry Is a rich man with a large bank account and the Pandora cost him £4,000. According to the statement of Mr. Kerry, the promoter, in 1904 the col onial office gave him the right to take guano from three uninhabited islands of the Tristan group. They charge} him £75 a year, and made it a condi tion that he should carry malls and parcels for the islanders free of charge. The Rev. Frank Stone, chaplain to the missions to seamen, interested himself in the matter, obtained several gifts for the islanders, and sent them to the Pandora. They included Bibles, books, cocoa, clothing, foodstuffs, and tools. Some of the gifts came from the Duchess of Bedford. The goods were shipped at the West India dock, and the Pandora steamed down the Thames. Before she reached Gravesend two parcels of hooks de signed for the islanders were thrown overboard. Three days from Las Pal mas more gift books were brought on deck, and Mr. Kerry told the sailors that they could select what they wanted and throw the rest overboard. The box containing the prayer books and other devotional volumes which are the sub ject of the charge was given to a seaman. The books were cast into the deeps. At Tristan Da Cunha some gifts weie sent nshort, but nothing like the quan tity which was sent out. Neither did Kerry seem to treat them as gifts, for two dead bullocks were taken to the yacht by the islanders, in return for two barrels of flour. , On the return voyage a call was made at Ascension island, and some of th.? books intended for the people of Tris tan Da Cunha were presented to the library. Kerry also went to Sierra Le one, and there sold to the steward of a cable ship — the Britannia — some tools sent as a gift for the people of Tris tan Da Cunha by a Mr. Morrish. A bargeful of coroa sent by Messrs. Fry for the Islanders of Tristan Da Cunha was sold at St. Helena. Among the gifts sent from were some mufflers, some women's un derclothing and some flannel. These things were torn up and given to the seamen wherewith to clean the brass work and paint of the yacht. It could bn proved furthermore, said Mr. Muir, that the cabin boy, a lad named H.amblln, was dressed up in woman's clothing taken from the pres ents, and that on Christmas day he waited at table on Ker:'y and his com panions dressed ns a girl. To the duchess of Bedford, Kerry wrote: "Madam— l have just arrived back in England In my exploring yacht Pan dora, and found the islanders all well and happy. They particularly request me to convey to your grace their most sincere thanks for your grace's very kind present, which they very much ap preciated." As a matter of fact, said Mr. Mulr, all the books given by the duchess were brought back to England, and were in the yacht still, saving such as had been taken away by the police. It was clear, said Mr. Muir, in con clusion that Kerry was the bailee of the goods, and in fraudulently converting them to his own use he was guilty of larceny. "After hearing the opening speech," said the magistrate, Mr. Marsham, "I shall require Increased bail." This was fixed at Kerry's own recognizance of £1000 and two sureties of £500 each.. LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 29, 1905. NEW THOROUGHFARE OPEN An Improvement Considered the Most Important in London Since 1820 Special Cable to Tho Herald. LONDON, Oct. 28.— The fine new thoroughfare formed by Klngsway and Aldwych, connecting the Strand and Holborn through the heart of congested London, waa opened by King Edward with considerable ceremonial. Queen Alexandra and other members of the royal family were present. The route was lined by troops, the decorations were on a pretentious scale, and immense crowds gathered to par ticipate in the event. The new street is considered to be the most important Improvement car ried out in the metropolis since the construction of Regent street, in 1820. The work occupied six years and cost more than $30,000,000, of which It is es timated two-thirds will be recovered by the sale of building sites. The thor oughfare Is three-quarters of a mile in length and one hundred yards wide. The notorious slums of the neighbor hood have been eradicated, and fifty one liquor shops which were scattered throughout the area have been abol ished. Underground trolley cars run beneath the new street. CHRISTIANS NOT FIRED, BUT FROZEN TOGETHER CANON EDWARDS OUTSPOKEN AT CHURCH CONGRESS The Church of England, He Says, Is Suffering From Apathetic Bishops and Bible Destroying Clergymen. Marriage and Divorce Discussed Special Cable to The Herald. , LONDON, Oct. 28.— There were a number of important subjects dis cussed In a most interesting way at the Church Congress, while In session at Weymouth, The need for "revivals" shown In the prevalence of gambling, the rising standard of luxury, the growth of pau perism, and the existence of selfish vested interests was the keynote of the paper with which the Tiev. A. W. Kobinson, vicar of All Hallows, Bark- Ing, opened the discussion on that sub ject. "There will never be a revival in the Church of England so long ns the church allows herself to tamper with fundamental truths." declared Canon AMen Edwards, who followed, amid a roar of applause. The church suffered from "apathetic bishops" and "Bible-destroying clergy men," he declared and continuing said: "I am thankful that the word 'revival' has at last found Its way Into the program of the church congress. So far as I can recollect, it has nevev been there before. The bishop and people of this diocese have placed the Church of England under an enormous obligation for putting It in the fort front of the discussions. "Nowadays the Christians in the church," he said, "instead of being fired, seem to be frozen together. We vant the support of the bishops in these revivals." "The founder of the church army," then announced the bishop of Salis bury, and the Rev. W. Carllle. in his Church Army uniform, stepped to tho front ami told something of his re vival work at St. Mary-sit-Hlll. "I be lieve," he said, "that the altar rail of the church will be the penitent form just as Wesley borrowed It from our dear old church." He insisted upon all helping the clergy, not excluding women. "It was a woman, my lord, who first led me from being a scoffer to Christ. "One 3ay," he continued, "I saw one of my workers jumping. He had been converted about six months before. 'You mustn't jump in church," 1 snid to him, "Oh, but, Mr. Carlile,' he said, 'I have just led my first soul up to tho altar rail, and I can't help jump ing.' I said to him: 'Very well, jump." The burden of the many si>r-eohes which followed was praise of the re cent nonconformist revivals, and the work, of Evan Roberts In Wales. At the discussion on marriage and divorce, under Ihe presidency of the bishop of Bristol, Lord Shaftesbury gave a paper on "The Ideal of Christ ian Marrl-Tge," and claimed that the marriage tie Is Indissoluble on earth, and that the .llvorce laws only tended to injure the moral and social life of the nation. Mr. Duke. K. C, M. P., dealt with the legnl side of the divorce problem In an extremely practical speech. Mr. Duke laid particular stress upon the gcorl work done by English law ad ministrators In preventing collusion. Some people had urged that publicity should not be given to divorce cases, but he maintained that in many cases the only punishment was the publica tion of the affair in the public press. These reports often acted as whole some deterrents against misconduct. The bishop of Rochester caused n mild sensation by declaring he was prepared to inhibit any clergyman who might re-marry persons who had been puilty parties In divorce cases, and looking round among the assembled clerygymen, he added grimly, that he had the inhibition papers with him in his bag. The bishop of Bristol wound up the discussion with the declaration that the marriage tie is absolutely Indis soluble in the lifetime of the parlies. MAKE DOVER IMPREGNABLE Gigantic Work of Developing and For. tifylng the Old Channel Seaport Special Cable to The Herald. LONDON, Oct. 27.— The work of de veloping the port of Dover into a first rate naval base and fortress, to ran\ with Gibraltar or Singapore, is proceed ing apace. The great southern break water of the Admiralty harbor, 1,400 yards long, begun less than a year ago, is to be completed in eighteen months. To give an Idea of the gigantic nature of this work, it may be stated that the solid masonry is constructed in 45 feet of water at low tide, is 70 feet thick at the base and about 100 feet high. In eighteen months the harbor will be completely protected from the sea, and will afford fleets lying In it complete immunity from torpedo attack, being, with the exception of Portland, the only harbor in the United Kingdom which offers these advantages. It Is under stood that a scheme for constructing a dock for submarines will appear in the forthcoming parliamentary estimates, and that floating dry docks will be stationed at Dover, although it is pro posed that these should, if necessary, be towed in war time to any base the fleet may be actually working from. There are two lines of railways al ready connected with the harbor, and at the eastern arm there will be abun dant facilities for coaling in connection with a very extensive yard, which has been reclaimed from the sea under the cliffs. Three forts, mounting guns of the latest pattern, already defend the harbor from high points on the cliffs. In addition the war office has acquired sites for two more forts, having 12-inch guns, which, It is hoped, will make Dover practically impregnable. The cliff, formications are very extensive...

LONDON, Oct. 28.— The favorite tone for the complexion now Is the Japanese tint, which Is a clear nut brown. "In order to obtain the best foundation for this," said a beauty specialist today, "I advise my clients to automobile as much as possible in the air to tone the skin to the color of a ripe olive, and then I would tone It down with good cold cream. Next a little olive powder is rubbed in. I sometimes change the color of the skin by artifice. "A client may come to me with a sallow complexion. I make her face look brighter by deepening the color of her hair. Diet is an Important part of my system, and whatever is the fashionable complexion of the moment I have a little menu that helps ma terially In effecting naturally the foun dation of the popular shade or tint. "Changing the color of the skin is by no means difficult. There are bleaches that will make one almost snow white, powders and cosmetics that darken to a desired shade, hut a healthy looking nut brown Is the latest complexion made." It is to he a.whlte winter, us ordained by fashion, with white clothes and brown complexions. Fur hats, coats, and even walking drosses nre to be of snowy while or a delicate shade of cream, but the new white crusader coat for women Is the real sartorial surprise of the season. It Is made of fleecy white cloth that's quite as warm and a quarter of the weight of the fur. The crusader coat Is really a glorified guards coat, which falls in long, graceful lines from the shoulder and is secured by a short strap at the back. This strap, which passes through a buckle of dull silver-colored metal, fits closely to the waist and Is often of con trasting color, pale blue. For prefer ence the wide collar and revers are also faced with cloths in a new shade of turquoise blue and embroidered with silver. Another of the new white winter coats Is cut on the empire plan, fitting closely to the shoulders and falling In long, flowing folds like many of the new coats. It is trimmed with fur and velvet. WILL PAY NO TAXES Former New York Policeman Builds a Houseboat and Moors It in Kenmare Bay Special Cable to The Herald. DUBLIN, Oct. 28.— Joseph D. Hager ty, an Irian-American, has taken up his residence with his wife and family In a houseboat, built by himself, moored in an inlet of Kenmare Bay, Co. Kerry. Two years ago Hagerty en me to Ireland. His relatives soon discovered that he was filled with the spirit of liberty. He had been a mem ber of the New York police force, and In that city only the owners of real I-roperty pay taxes. Eighteen months ago he Informed nil relatives that for the house in which he intended to live he would pny nelter rput, rates, nor tnxes, nnd he straightway began to build a house boat. Six months ago the vessel was launched in an inlet of the bay, and since then Hagerty and his family have resided in it. The boat is called the Yankee It is 40 feet in length, 13 feet In width, and n ore. than 10 feet from keel to roof top. The house runs nearly the full length of the boat, and is divided into four compartments — kitchen, dining room, and two bedrooms. Aft, outside iht house proper, is a store chamber. Tho roof of the house is utilized as a water tank, fresh water being secured from a stream near by. Underneath the deck is a bed of con crete, In the making of which two tons of material were used. Hagerty claims that the concrete will keep the house dry, and also serve as ballast. Hagerty, who is believed to have been In the United States navy, was interview by a correspondent of tl:e "Irish Independent." "We want no interference from any body," he said. "We are free-born j.eople, and we intend to remain so. Everybody else in this country are slaves. If they aien't why tl < they pay to live on the earth that God made for them, eh? I'm busy. Good-rlay. Get off the boat." DINNER BY ELECTRICITY Sixty-Five Sit Down to a Repast, the Cooking of Which Cost Five Shillings Special Cable to The Herald. LONDON, Oct. 28.-Sixty-flve per sons, electrical experts and others, sat down at the Olympia Klectrlcal ex hibition last night to a dinner electri cally cooked (at a coat of 4s Sd.) in the room In which It was served. Mr. Ounllffe Owen of the Metropol itan Electric Supply company, said that hitherto electric warming and cooking hn-d been regarded as nn expensive fad, but the present exhibition would dispel that delusion. The fact that the dinner was cooked in that very room was a proof that the objections to gas cookery did not apply to electricity. Some of the London companies had reduced the price of current used for these purposes to so low a figure as to bring electricity Into serious compe tition with coal, oil and gas. The exhibition had been in every way a success. It had given a fillip to busi ness, and there were abundant signs of better times for the electrical trade. HOOKS A TORPEDO BOAT Special Cable to The Herald. LONDON, Oct. 28.— A five-ton boat recently put out from Brlxham in Devonshire and the captain lowered his trawl net of eight feet beam. Soon, with the wind behind him, he waa making a steady course when suddenly the boat stopped and began to move astern at a good pace. Thinking he had caught a whale, which might, possibly drag the boat under water, he rushed aft and cut the trawl rope. At once the boat stopped and the captain put about to see what would happen. In a few ' moments the dark, shiny back of a sea monster, appeared above the surface. A submarine which wns maneuvering 1 had become entangled in his trawl. The crew of the submarine gravely returned the captain his trawl, und with mutual apologies and mud) laughter the, lncident was closed. , . GREAT PROJECTS IN THE f'^ ORIENT NOW UNDER WAY BRITISH CAPITAL WILL DEVELOP JAPANESE TERRITORY New Ports on the Gulf of Pechill and New Shipping Service Between China and Japan — Present Railroad Law Aids Projects of Promoters Special Cable to The Herald. LONDON, Oct. 28.— Details of the great activity In the far east continue to be received here and the knowledge that most of the new projects are to bt largely aided by British capital gives additional Interest to the news. Inquiries In Japanese financial circles show that the greater part of the con structive work which will be under taken will be In Manchuria and Korea, though there are several railway schemes in Japan itself that require capital for their completion. The com pany which has been formed here to finance vnrlous projects has already had several business offers made to it, but It la not yet possible to state what direction their activities will take. Among the projects under considera tion by Japanese firms Is the develop ment of the southern half of the Island of Saghallen, which has been ceded to Japan by Russia under the peace trea ty. Further plans nre being considered for the creation of new ports on the Gulf of Pechill, and for the establish ment of new shipping services between Japan and China. At the end or 1904 there were nearly a thousand miles of railway under con struction In Japan alone, and owing to lack of capital the work in some cases was languishing. Besides this, there were seventeen electric tramway companies In existence In Japan, with an aggregate capital of over £3,R00,000. whose lines already opened totaled 120 miles, with eighty-five miles more under construction. Most of these companies, however, are still in the Initiatory state, and do not yet make a very profitable busi ness of their undertakings. But large profits aro possible with the introduc tion of new capital, for the electric tramways of Tokio pay annual divi dends of not less than 10 per cent. Although it has always been the policy of the Japanese Government to encourage railway construction, rail way companies experienced no little In ronvenlece In obtaining the funds nec essary for carrying on and extending their business because of their inability under the laws In force to mortgage their lines. To remedy this defect, the railway mortgage law was promul gated in March last. Under this law a private joint-stock railway company may form a railway foundation with the whole or a part of Its railway lines, land for railway use, building!!, instruments and appli ances for railway use or attached to the 1 all ways and rolling stocks and Instru ments and appliances appertaining thereto, and make such foundation the object of a mortgage. This law will doubtless contribute materially to the activity of railway enterprise in Japan. FLIES SPREAD CHOLERA Special Cable to The Herald. PARIS.

NEW FIELD FOR MISSIONS British Church Society Sends a Party of Pioneers to the Soudan Special Cable to The Herald. LONDON, Oct. 28.— The Church Mis sionary society Is sending six pio neers to open up a region new to mis sionary enterprise In the Soudan. Lord Cromer has selected the sphere of work, which is about four times the size of England. The country is Inhabited by pagan tribes, the majority of whom are men of immense stature, and Borne of whom are cannibals. The pioneer party, consisting of the Rev. F. B. Hadow, the Rev. A. Shaw, the Rev. A. M. Thorn,. Dr. E. Lloyd nnd Messrs. J. Comely and R. C. J. 8. Wilmot, will leave Marseilles on the 18th Inst., and hope to reach ihe scene of their labors by Chistmas. They will take provisions for twelve months, and expect to live for a con siderable period in boats and tents. After leaving Khartoum, they will travel by sailing boats for about 1100 miles up the White Nile. Escorted by Archdeacon Gwynne of Khartoum, they will first go through the new district to Its most southerly point nt Mongalla, a government sta tion near the borders of the Egyptian Soudan and Uganda. Probably the headquarters of the mission will be fixed near this point, the only other habitable place being Bor, situated on the line some distance to the north of Lado. In addition to the clergy who go with the pioneers, the party includes a doc tor from Poplar Infirmary, a carpen ter from one of the county council technical schools, and an agricultural expert. It is intended at first to begin In dustrial work among the pagans, and In time to teach them to manufacture bricks. SLAYS TWO, BUT FEARS TO DIE Youth Who Made a Suicide Agree. ment Loses Nerve After Murders Special Cable to Tho Herald, BERLIN, Oct. 28.— Alma and Martha Haars, daughters of a merchant at Brunswick, bright, pretty girls, aged 20 and 22, had as a music teacher a talented youth, Karl Brunke, aged 18; an attachment sprang up between him and the younger woman, but owing to their slender prospects marriage was Impossible, so they decided to kill them selves. A few days after this the elder sister received n letter from her be throthed saying he could not marry her, so she determined to die, too. At 8 o'clock on Tuesday evening the sisters removed their corsets In order that the bullets might not be obstructed, put on new silk bodices, wrote farewell letters to their parents, and went with Brunke to his home. He had sent his mother to a theater. The three young people drank two bottles of champagne. The sisters then leaned back In two easy chairs, side by side. Brunke fired twice through his sweetheart's heart. The elder sister. Alma, got up and waited, watching till Martha was dead. Thereupon she re sumed her place In the easy chair, and Brunke fired twice through her heart, causing instant death. At sight of the two corpses Brunke's courage failed him, and Instead of shooting himself he went out, walked the streets all night, and gave himself up to the police in the morning.
