GERMANY ISSUED BY
BERLIN, Oct. 11 The fourth vol
time of the speeches of Kmperor Wil
liam, delivered during the years 1906
to 1912, has just appeared, its 326
pages crowded with addressee and
toasts on all kinds of subjects, sus
taining his reputation as the groatest
royal speechmaker of the present era.
The collection contains many of
the epigrammatic utterances of mo
mentous political declarations which
have from time to time created a stir
in Germany and In the world, such at
his declaration on woman's sphere
and divine right, at Koenigsberg, in !j
1910; his proclamation of himself at
optimist and believer in his fellow
men; his contempt for pesBlmisfs,
hla repeated expression of his belief'
in Divine Providence and his warning
against Intemperance, delivered to
the students of the academy at Cat
sell. Among the most interesting and
characteristic passages in the new
collection are the following:
" The world belongs to the living
and the living know beBt. I will
tolerate no pessimists; whoever is.
not ready to work may drop out and1,.
If he wishes, hunt up a country let
ter suited to him."
" I am an optimist through and
through. I want to progress. I:
Bhould be delighted If people only
understood what I am trying tcr dti
and would give me their support. We
are bound to consider every man
honest until he has proved the com
trary. This Is the principle on which
I have always dealt with every one
with whom I have to do. The results

WASHINGTON, D. C. Oct. 11. The
white marble of which the great
$2,000,000 Lincoln memorial temple is
to be built on the banks of the Po
tomac in Washington is to come from
the Sopris national forest, Colorado.
This Is said to be the first great
building in the east to be constructed
of this stone, known to the building
trades as Denver marble, though
much of it has been used as an In
terior finish iu public buildings. In
the west a notable example of its use
is found in the new federal building
While the marble quarries are iu
the midst of the national forest, they
are on private land secured under
the laws by which areas bearing de
posits of building stone are disposed
of by the government. Under the
law prospectors can locate and secure
title to mineral deposits on the na
tional forests Just as they can on
the open public domain. The marble
company which owns the quarries is

The history of the company is said

FISHGUARD, England, Oct. 11. One hundred and thirty-six
persons wer.j drowned or burned to death when fire destroyed the
liner Volturno, from Rotterdam to New York. Five hundred and
twenty one were saved by the heroic efforts of the crews of ten
liners called by wireless.
Terrible S(:as prevented the rescue of the balance of the passen
gers. Time and time again lifeboats tried to approach the doomed
vessel, narrowlyy escaping destruction. Six lifeboats of the Volturno
were dashed against her sides, and the occupants drowned or bat
tered to death.
The liner Carmania was first to reach the scene of the disaster.
The flaming vessel was rolling heavily and her propellors fouled in
the tackle used in lowering the lifeboats. Captain Barra ot the
Carmania got his vessel within 100 feet of the Volturno but found it
impossible to get a line aboard.
The Carmania's wireless summoned nine other liners, and lighted
life buoys were cast overboard. By this time the vessel was a mass
pf flames and the sea was filled with struggling men, women and
children. The crews of the other vessels picked up some of them.
No Americans were aboard, as nearly all were emigrants Russians,
Dalmatians, Poles, and a few Germans bound for Canada.
The fire started Thursday and the Carmania arrived a few
hours later. All the rescue vessels kept their lights on the Volturno,
where the passengers were huddled and the'erew fighting the flames.
Occasionally one jumped overboard. Passengers and others were
horror-stricken as they watched.
At daybreak Friday the Volturno was still afloat. The sea mod
erated and a considerable flotilla of boats assembled close to the
stern and began me rescue.
