Daily News of London
Takes Issue With
LONDON, Dec. 25.— The Daily News this
morning, in an editorial discussing Stead'H
pamphlet on "The American Lion of the
World," admits that Mr. Gladstone's
prophecy that the United States would
replace Great Britain as the premier na
tion has been, on the whole, realized; but
It declares It to be utterly impossible that
Great Britain, as Mr. Stead extravagant
ly expresses it, should enter an Anglo-
American union except after a series of
disasters rendering separate existence im
possible. The paper considers any kind
of an Anglo-American federation equally
unlikely, owing to the Briton's Insatiable
love of caste. For the rest, It confesses
the enormous influence which the United
States wields over British colonies and
that a majority of Irishmen would vote
for federation with the United States.,.' -
The article further says It would be In
teresting to see what must happen If the
I,nlted States should drop its protection
ist policy and should offer to Jamaica, In
dia, or even Australia the immense bribe
of admission on reciprocal terms to their
vast, evtr-extending markets.

TWO MEN ROB
A LONE WOMAN
Footpads Hold Up Annie
Martin on Powell
- . Street.
Masked Highwaymen Oper
ate in the Shadow of a
In the shadow of the First Baptist
Church (colored) two masked footpads
perpetrated a daring hold-up on Christ
mas eve. They waylaid and relieved Miss
Annie Martin, who resides at 518 Powell
street, of $38, all the cash that she had
in her purse, and a bank book containing
notes to the amount of 51000. The robbery
was immediately reported to Lieutenant
Birdsall, but the footpads had made their
escape and the police could find nothing
of them. - »
When the holdup occurred Miss Martin
was on her way home. The footpads,
both of whom wore masks that concealed
their features, sprang out from' their hid
ing place and confronted the frightened
lady with a pistol. From the deliberate
manner in which the robbers performed
their work the police are of the opinion
that they are professional -footpads. After
having relieved Miss Martin of all the
money which she had, the highwaymen
took to their heels and made good their
escape. At the time of the holdup there
were no people on Powell street to whom
Miss Martin could have appealed for as
sistance. •' - * • :
Lieutenant Birdsall reported the hold
up toyCaptain Seymour yesterday and he
detailed two men to search for the foOt
pads. Notwithstanding the fact that the
robbers wore heavy masks, Miss Martin
was able to give a very good description
of them. A notice hag been sent to the
bank in which Miss Martin has her
money deposited instructing the man
agement not to honor the checks that the

Troops Called to Arias.
Colonel Rawles, commander of the post,
was informed of the riot by Lieutenant
Rice, officer of the day, soon after the
light became general. ,A call to arms was.
then ■ given and two companies ' of the
Twenty-seventh Infantry and detach
ments of cavalrymen and artillerymen
were sent out to quell the disturbance.
Provost guards were established and for
the time the peaceful Presidio was trans
formed into a scene of war.
The companies marched out to the scene
of the riot and the .soldiers were then
driven back of the fence that marks the
boundary of the reservation. Here they
collected, still fuming from the engage
ment and their Christmas drinks. On the
other side of the fence the soldiers hoot
ed and yelled and howled. The noise
could be heard for blocks, and many min
utes elapsed before they were dispersed.
Orders were given, out last night that
no one should leave the reservation
whether a pass had been issued or- not.
The turmpil was so great that at a late

neighborhood had not yet recovered from
their scare. JlliWity<tfilBtoM«|iW3BiiBMB
