KINGSTON, Jamaica, May 11.
—Once more I am on the island
of Jamaica, with my coat and
veHt off, resting under the shade
of a palm tree.
Every time 1 come to this is
land, I am struck with the con
trast between it and the cities of
our own great country.
Although only five days from
New York, Jamaica is in the
tropics, and everything In sight
is distinctly tropical.
The surface of the island is
mountainous, the eastern part
being more elevated than the oth
er portions.
The mountains reach 2,000 to
3,000 feet, with the highest peak,
Blue mountain, 7,4 23 feet.
This diversity of surface causes
an endless variety of vegetation:
mainly tropical, of course, hut
semi-tropical on the highlands.
One reason for the density of
the growth, in places so thick
that the traveler in the forest
must cut his way with an ax, Is
the great number of streams and
springs on the island.
There are said to he 2,000
rivers, springs and rivulets, some
of them, notably Cane river and
Roaring river, having beautiful
waterfalls. Indeed, the name of
the Island is supposed to come
from an Indian word, "Xatuayea,"
meaning abundance of water.
The island is only one-tenth the
size of Cuba, having 4,107 square
miles, a little smaller than Con
necticut, or twice the size of Dela
There are. of course, palms
unci palms and p-tlins, the
giant cotton tree, tallest of
all the Inland vegetation, lo
cu**ts. mahogany and cedar
trees mid many, many others.
In the numerous garden*,
and parks, nil kinds of m,\
plant*, anil shrubs are brought
to such perfection us could
be possible ONLY IX Till:

Roy I). Pinkerton. editor of The Times, opened the discussion
at the members' council session of the Commercial club yesterday
afternoon by outlining his proposal for a building and housing survey
of the city, to be undertaken by the club. It was announced that
this matter already had been laid before the trustees and had been
referred to the civic bureau for action.
L. A. Nicholson, J. K. Bonnell, ('. B, Hurley and others discussed
die proposed opening of the even numbered streets from Pacific aye.
west. The upshot of the discussion was the adoption of a motion
requesting that the trustees name a committee to bring about an
opening of 50-foot streets.
The new Tacoma health department, headed by Dr. Edward A.
Rich, held its first meeting in the city health office this morning.
The appointment of Or. E. A. Montague, for the last five years Ta
coma school physician, was active head of the health department,
was announced by Dr. Rich. Drs. Edwin W. Janes, former health
officer; E. C. Wheeler, J. B. McNerthney and B. H. Foreman have
been named as an advisory health board.
Dr. Miniim-He tendered his resignation to the school board yes
terday. The board appointed Dr. E. A. Dayton to succeed him. He
will be chief medical inspector of the public schools, \ ill Dr. Mary
F. Perkins us assistant.
LONDON, May 11.—More sensations followed the announce
ment yesterday of the resignation of the lord lieutenant of Ireland.
A commission was appointed to investigate the causes of the Irish
outbreak. The government admitted the truth of the report that
three Irish editors had been executed in Dublin without the knowl
edge of the military authorities. The demand for a special 'session
of the house or commons to discuss the executions In Ireland was
granted. A manifesto was issued to the Irish people by John Red
mnd denouncing the rebellion.
PORTLAND, Ore., May 11.—That short skirts and the "as
sumption of an aggressive attitude"' by young girls is a more serious
moral strain upon youth than moving pictures, was the statement
of Dr. John H. Boyd, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, be
fore delegates of the Religious Education association yesterday.
Harry Moore, executive secretary of the Oregon Social Hygiene
society, said that films were a worse stimulus than short skirts. He
said that the "initiative toward disaster comes from the boy."
There is a deadlock between the members of the school board
over the appointment of a successor to fill the vacancy caused by the
death of ltev. H. B. llendlev. In ballots taken at the meeting yes
terday two members voted for the appointment of Ralph S. Stacy,
president of tho National Bank of Tacoma, and two favored Attorney
Anthny J. Swindle. Five names are before the school board, but
these are the only ones who have been formally nominated. The
appointment of a compromise candidate may settle the difficulty.
LIVERPOOL, May It, —After drifting six days in an open boat
without food or water, six members of the crew of the Freueh fish
ing vessel Hernadotte, sunk by a submarine, were landed here today.
All the men were in the last stages of exhaustion. One man drank
salt water, became demented and lumped overboard. They were
bound for the Newfoundland fishing banks when the vessel was sunk.
VIENNA, May 11.—More than
50,000 Russian prisoners have
petitioned the government to be
allowed to remain in Austria and
become citizens after the war,
claiming they do not wish to re
turn to Russia.
