DENMARK CONSIDERS FREE TRADE POLICY. aiORKKIMOCOLONY COPENHAGEN, April 22. The VPnrsagoVeiiimfent Is trying u lormu l ewsyHej oloyernioent lor i its colony of Greenland, but the Royal Commission appointed for that pur toae has been unable thus far to , agree whether the Eskimos of that : far northern land shall be allowed to have free trade -with all nations. I j . King Christian is to visit Greenland in June, the first time a Danish king lias ever visited that colony, and the , commission hopes to reach an agree ; ment in time to enable him to an- pounce the new plan of government when he is greeted by the Eskimos. I , Condemns Monopoly, s" A well-known Greenland explorer, who is not a member of ithe commis sion, told the correspondent that one section of the commission was holding ' out for free trade between the Greeri ' land Eskimos and the nationals of all brightly says that the present system of the Danish" state granting a mon- opoly to a single company, even 01 : this company is managed by Danish state omciais ana ior. an pracucai , purposes is a government uepmmieui, Is a direct violation of all democratic principles. , : i "Without any competition, no com- pany, and particularly a company managed by state officials, could pos sibly be expected to obtain for pro ' ducts of the natives the same high prices as would be obtainable in the open market. Monopoly never bred efficiency. Childlike Natures. ' "On the other hand, the other sec tion of the Royal commission asserts that the Eskimo is a child and must De treated line a cniia, mat intoxicat ing liquors and other of the 'blessings' ' of civilization must be kept away from ' him, or he will go to rack and ruin. "Every Greenland settlement has been visited by illegal traders who have shamelessly taken advantage or the confiding nature of the Eskimos. For a bottle of vile spirits, or a row of glass beads these 'traders' have - roDDed the natives ot bearskins ana nther nrodnets of crpnt vaIiip. So a grandmotherly trade restriction may not be rieht in principle but certainly in practice." ". HAYS REVOKES POSTOFFICE t WORKERS' RETIREMENT RULE WASHINGTON. April 22.

Twenty of the attackers, it is stated, were armed with rifles and ten with double-barrelled shottruns. They were concealed on one side of a road near a stream. , "As in a previous ambush," the com mander reports, "the main body was divided into three parties. The posi tion which , was occupied at 7 a. m., was not very favorable, but we counted on the element of surprise and . the concentrated fire of 15 of the rifles and the, ten shotguns in the first volley to make up for shortcomings and in this we were successful.' They,, waited, it appears, until four o'clock in the afternoon before the lorry came in . sight. . "When the car came into the center position," the re port continues, "It was raked with the fire of the 24 guns, most of the polico were shot off and the car came to a dead stop. Some of 'the police when they got on the road made an attempt to put up a fight, but the secocnd vol ley, which included all the rifles, wiped them out. Risky Operation "What is termed "an exceedingly risky operation as we were half the enemy strength" was the attack in County Donegal on a military train from Derry. According to the brigade commander's report the attacking par ty numbered 26. Information was le ceived at 9:30 at night, the report says, that the special train was to leave Derry at 3 a. m., the next morn ing. "Little time was left, to choose a position and get settled, but the train was late, giving us three-quarters of an hour to eet ready.. We chose a cut ting, one side of which was on a level with the carriage windows. At the ends of each side we placed bombers and riflemen and between were placed the remaining riflemen and the others differently armed. Two large boulders were placed on the rails and the wire fences at each side were pulled up to afford a safe exit. The station building a short dis tance . away was taken possession of and a green light displayed. "There were seven carriages on the train and it was travelling at a great speed when it struck the stones. Hurl Bombs "Fire was opened up from both sides and bombs were hurled through the windows. The ' fire was returned from the cab of the engine, where a Lewis gun was m position. Our rifle men at the rear end of the train got down on the line for enfilading fire, but after about ten minutes, I ' was forced to order a retreat to effect the safe escape of our men. Eight bombs were thrown, two of which we are cer tain landed in carriages. In the retreat one of our two parties was surrounded twice but fought its way through on each occa sion. One of our men is missing and we believe he has fallen into the hands of the enemy. No other casual ties were suffered on our side and, de spite their denial, we have every rea son to believe tnat at least ten men were either killed or wounded on the! enemy side." m Lockwood and Miss Ida Huffman were married Saturday evening.
