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
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
.The Vicar of Hook Abandons His
Flock In Despair and Goes
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."
Spanish Provinces Where Farmers
and Merchants Are Boldly
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.
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
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
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
"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
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
"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..
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.
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
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
"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.
Gigantic Work of Developing and For.
tifylng the Old Channel
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
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...

Sixty-Five Sit Down to a Repast, the
Cooking of Which Cost Five
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.

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

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.

PARIS, Oct. 2S.— Fall trade is unusu
ally brisk In the Paris pet dog market,
M. Aaron, who is at the head of the
dogs' palace in the Rue Castiglione,
says he has never had a better sea
son. One morning this month he sold
13,000f. ($2,600) worth of bulls, Paplllons,
toy spaniels and Poms, almost all the
purchasers being Americans.
When asked what dog is now most
fashionable he remarked: "With cold
weather coming and women wearing
furs and darker dresses than in spring
and summer, animals with white coats
or an abundance of white are most In
demand. That is why Japs, Blenheims
and tiny Maltese terriers are being
bought up.
"Apart from these, small Poms, toy
spaniels and black and tan 3 are most
salable. French bulls have fallen In
price considerably, even for flrst-clas3
specimens. Americans, who are the
principal buyers, won't give fancy
prices, 5,000f. to 40,000f. (SI,OOO to $8,000),
as they did two years ago."
