LAWYERS TIM
INK IN COURT
Row in Rome in Which Dis
putants Are Blackened and
One Loses a Tooth.
ROME, Nov. 21.—A suit brought by
px-Minister Bettolo against Deputy
Ferri, editor of the Avanti (socialist),
who accuses the minister of using his
influence to obtain large orders for a
linn in which he is interested, thus
provoking Bettolo's fall from power, is
in progress here. The discussion in
court today became very heated. Both
Bettolo's lawyer calling the campaign
ing lawyers, who are also members of
the chamber of deputies.
At today's sitting a tumult arose over
P.ettolo's lawler calling the campaign
of the Avanti "a series of defama
tions." Ferri protested indignantly,
whereupon Signor Vettori, one of Bet
tolo's lawyers, classed his opponents
as rascals. Deputy Comandinl, of
counsel, retorted, amidst an uproar, by
i-alling the opposing lawyers cowards,
whereupon Vettori threw an inkstand
in the face of Comandini, covering him
with ink and breaking one of his
teeth.
This was the signal for a general
fight, during which all the inkstands
in cnurt were used as missiles. The
pri .-ulent of the court called in the car
bineers on duty, but they were unable
to restore order and he was compelled
to postpone the sitting until Monday.
ROYAL VISITORS DEPART.
Italy's King and Queen Are Given a
Good Send-Off by the Britons.
LONDON, Nov. 21. —Much ceremonial
ntte'nded the departure today from
Windsor of King Victor Emmanuel and
Queen Helena of Italy. The royal pro
cession from the castle to the railway
station was similar to the one wit
nessed on their arrival. The crowds
gave the visitors a most cordial send
off. The first farewells of the mem
bers of the royal families took place
in King Edwards waiting room. The
iwo kings, arm in arm, then inspected
the guard of honor and the two queens
followed. Subsequently King Edward
and King Victor Emmanuel escorted
Quern Helena and Queen Alexandra,
respectively, to the saloon train, where
the queens bade each other an affec
tionate good-bye. As the train was
moving away from the station King
Edward stepped forward, stretched out
both hands and clasped the hands of
King Victor Emmanuel, who leaned out
of the window. The band then played
the Italian national hymn and King
Edward stood at salute until the train
was out of sight.
Royal salutes from the warships,
which were dressed rainbow fashion,
greeted the Italian king and queen on
their arrival at Portsmouth. They im
mediately embarked on the royal yacht
Victoria and Albert, which departed for
< 'herbourg, attended by the torpedo
boat destroyer flotilla, amid the strains
of "Auld Lang Syne" and a final salute
of twenty-one guns.
An incident of the departure of the
Italian sovereigns which created some
excitement was a collision between the
torpedo-boat 3estroyeji- ; Violet, one of
the escorting .flotilla, with a gunboat.
The Violet's Mows were badly damaged.
CHERBOURG. Nov. The entry
of the roynl_v&cht, bearing King Vic
tor EmmairtfeT an<l Quet.'n Helena, and
the escorty^g flotilla, A\feh a gunboat,
waters was" ~ gieeted with a salute of
101 guns from the forts. The French
squadron in the roads "fired twenty-one
guns as the vessel picked up
their mooring" buoys. The maritime
prefect boarded the Victoria and Al
bert to greet the king and queen. This
evening the French fleet waa brilliantly
illuminated.
Their majesties landed at the arse
nal and were received with military
honors by the local officials. At 7:40
o'clock they boarded a train, which
steamed out ffbm the station amid the
cheering of a large crowd.
ADDRESSES WORKINGMEN.
Mr. Chamberlain Endeavors to Con-
vince Toilers in Wales.
LONDON, Nov. 21.—Joseph Cham
berlain spoke at Newport, Wales, to
day before a mass meeting of working
men, to whom he directed the main
portion of his arguments. Mr. Cham
berlain said he did not believe a tariff
war would follow the adoption of his
fiscal policy, but if it did come Great
Britain could get as much as on former
occasions when she had the courage to
hold her own. Mr. Chamberlain
pointed out the Brussels sugar conven
tion and the German threat to penalize
Canada as instances in which Great
Britain had secured her way without a
tariff war. He said sugar was actually
lower in the United Kingdom now than
it had been during the five years im
mediately preceding the adoption of
the convention, while the West Indian
colonies were relieved of the bounty
incumbus which had been strangling
them for thirty years past.
The speaker said he did not believe
that Germany or any other nation was
anxious to cross swords with Great
Britain in a tariff war. Mr. Chamber
lain dwelt upon the subject of "dump
ing," repeating his former arguments.
He said "•dumping" had been of no ad
vantage to British shipping. In the
last six years the foreign tonnage en
tering South Wales ports had increas
ed 1,700,000 tons, while the British
tonnage had decreased by 1,000,000
tons.
BIRTH DATE ERASED.
Three Possible Theories in the Case of
Countess Kwilecki.
BF;RLIN, Nov. 21. — The mystery
surrounding the case of Countess Isa
bella Wosierska Kwilecki, charged
with presenting a false heir to an es
tate at Wroblewo, province of Posen,
which has been before the courts here
since Oct. 26, has become more intri
cate through the erasure of the date of
the Mayer child's birth from the St.
Nicholas parish register at Cracow
and the theft of a copy thereof from
the municipal records.
The Countess Kwilecki's witnesses
testified today that they found a less
than a day old child when they en
tered the countess' bedroom Jan. 25,
1897, and the Mayer woman declared
that her boy, who she claimed to have
recognized in the person of the Kwi-
Jecki child, was born Dee. 17, 1896.
Long reports of this protracted trial
furnish the daily reading supply of the
Berlin public. An enormous mass of
testimony is offered, supporting each
of the three possible theories, that the
countess palmed off the Mayer child
for her own, or prepared to make a
substitution and then actually bore a
son, or that the persons interested In
the succession of the Wroblewo estates
plotted to prove a substitution without
any other excuse than the advancing
ase of the countess, who was over fifty
in 1897.

MOUNTAIN MONUMENT.
Striking Statue to Perpetuate the
Memory of Pope Leo XIII.
ROME, Nov. 21.—Ernesto Biondi, one
of the best known Italian sculptors,
has been chosen to model the monu
ment which is to be erected by inter
national subscription to the memory
of Pope Leo XIII. on top of Sempre
visa, the highest mountain of the Le
pini chain, the root of which is at Car
plneto, the late pope's birthplace. The
figure will represent Pope Leo in
bronze, standing and blessing the land
and sea. It will have an enormous
pedestal, with bas reliefs in the style
of those of Babylon, representing the
whole world of sufferers and destitute
persons aspiring towards the gospel,
which will be represented by an enor
mous figure of an angel, on whose
wings the statue of Pope Leo will rise.
May Wear Oxygen Masks.
BERLIN, Nov. 21.—Future aerial

double-walled aluminum and glass
cages, and before starting will put on
oxygen masks, according to a predic
tion of Dr. Hermann yon Schroetter, of
Vienna, in a lecture before the Berlin
Society of Aerial Navigation. Dr. yon
Schroetter maintains that the physio

oxygen and he advised an early re
course to oxygen inspiration before the
bad effects of the poorer atmosphere
are perceptible.

RAILROAD NEWS
IF YOU SEE IT IN THE
GLOBE FIRST IT'S SO
Friday's Globe.
Special to The Globe.
CHICAGO, Nov. 19. — The Grand
Trunk has entered into a traffic alli
ance with the Burlington and the
Northern Pacific whereby transconti
nental freight may be routed direct
from the Atlantic coast ports to Ta
coma and the Orient via the newly es
tablished Canadian and Puget sound
steamship lines. The first sailing will
be made Dee. 20.
The Grand Trunk is practically,
though not completely, independent of
the Trunk Line association. It has
always been stated by the Trunk Line
officials that the lack of a connection
west of Chicago would suffice to
keep the Grand Trunk within bounds
in regard to rates.
CHARGES FOR CARS
TO BE INCREASED
American Railway Association
May Raise Per Diem
Penalty.
If the agitation in support of the
measure in some parts of the country
can command sufficient support from
a majority of the members, It is likely
that the present per diem charges for
the use of freight cars will be advanced
when the American Railway associa
tion holds Its meeting in New York
next April.
The purpose, of course, is to increase
the measure of protection that the per
diem system has been affording against
unnecessary detention of cars when
away from their owners beyond thirty
days, which constitute the limit of time
preceding the application of the penal
ty. Under the present rules the rate is
20 cents a day for the use of a car, and
after thirty days the penalty is $1 per
Saturday's Dispatch.
The Northern Pacific and the Bur
lington have entered into an arrange
ment with the Chicago Grand Trunk
whereby transcontinental freight may
be routed direct from the Atlantic
coast to the Tacoma wharves, and
thence to Oriental points, via the new
Canadian-Australian and the Puget
sound steamship lines. The first sail
ing wil be made Dec. 20.
This announcement is looked upon
as being of the utmost importance to
railroads.
The Grand Trunk owna a direct line
from the Atlantic, and within a few
months will have a double-track, low
grade railroad from tidewater to Chi
cago. From this point the freight will
be taken by the Burlington, trans
ferred to the Northern Pacific, either
at St. Paul or Billings, and carried
thence to Tacoma.
The Grand Trunk is practically in
dependent of the Trunk Line associa
tion and no rates or terms can be dic
tated. By securing this connection the
Grand Trunk is still more independent
of the Trunk Line association.
By the new arrangement a new route
from coast to coast is provided.
day until the car is returned to the
owning road.
The movement in favor of this meas
ure had its inception within a short
time after the per diem system was
adopted. Experience had satisfied those
who began it that the best results
sought and hoped for from per diem
would not be attained unless a higher
charge were imposed. They were pre
pared to spring it at the meeting of the
association early in the year, but were
headed off because the report of the
committee in charge of the per diem
subject was referred back to that com
mittee.
Want Charges Increased.
If its advocates can succeed in car
rying their recommendations, the dally
charge for the thirty days will be rais
ed from 20 to 50 cents, and the pen
alty rate from $1 to $5 a day. It is
insisted that only by enforcing so heavy
a charge in case can the effect be
obtained that will minimize the deten
tion of cars to such an extent as to
enable car owners to have the proper
use of their equipment.
Notwithstanding the change from a
mileage to a per diem system, there
has still been much cause for complaint
in reference to cars being held for fur
ther use by lines to which they are de
livered under load. What are ordina
rily termed the little roads are the
greatest offenders in this nractice. They
found it cheaper to resort to it than
to buy new equipment. It is not dis
puted that they have continued to hold
cars for an indefinite length of time for
this purpose, as they could better of
ford to pay the present rates.
The old mileage system was aban
doned by lines in the American associ
ation because its inadequacy to insure
quick return of equipment was demon
strated beyond question or consistent
dispute.
The per diem system enables roads
to fix rental charges with accuracy,
perfect records of a car being kept
from the time it leaves its own rails.
What was an exasperating evil has
been only partially reformed. There
seems to be no doubt that higher rates
will complete the work in that direc
tion.
DEATHS IN PULLMAN
SLEEPERS ARE FEW
Only Six Passengers Were Killed In Three
Years.
NEW YORK, Nov. 21.—When a bill re-
Quiring Pullman sleeping cars to be built
' of steel was introduced in the New York
state legislature, it was represented that
the present form of construction was a
source of danger to life. The statement
was made that "last year 795 persons were
killed and 1,550 were injured on or by
railroad trains in the state of New York
alone, a certain proportion of them upon
the supposedly safe Pullman cars."
Investigation just completed shows that
during the year ending on Sept. 1, 1903,
no person was either killed or injured on
a Pullman car in the state of New York,
and that the three past years, in which
there were accommodated by the Pullman
company 32,639,341 railway passengers in
all parts of the United States, six persons
were killed In two disastrous railway
wrecks, four were seriously injured ana
64 slightly injured, making a total of 74
casualties to passengers out of more than
32,000.000 carried in the last three years
in Pullman cars.
GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC
SURVEYS ARE MADE
Company Finishes Work and Charts Are
Turned Over to Government.
MONTREAL, Nov. 21.—"When the Grand
Trunk made application for a charter
from North Bay to the Pacific, the rail
road company immediately sent parties
out to survey the proposed route from
Abittibl westward. The surveys from
that point to Winnipeg have been com
pleted, and the company is turning them
over to the government, which will re
coup the Grand Trunk for the outlay.
From Winnipeg westward the entire
prairie section has been surveyed by the
company, and parties are now at work
surveying the route in the Northwest and
British Columbia. It is said the deposit
of $5,000,000, which the Grand Trunk
Pacific lias to make under its agreement
with the government has been deposited
in London.
REDUCED STEEL RATES
WILL APPLY TO RAILS
New Tariff on Steel Products to Become
Effective Soon.
NEW YORK, Nov. 21.—Freight rates on
steel rails for export will be lowered in a
day or two. The cut will be the same as
that ordered Thursday by traffic officials
of the railroads in the trunk line and Cen-
tral Traffic associations, 33 1-3 per cent
of the present tariff.
The cut mentioned, it now develops, was
applied only to the "special iron and steel
tariffs," which did not include rails. At
a meeting to be held during the .second
week of December the rail committeea of
the Central Traffic and Trunk Line asso
ciations will consider an adjustment of tha
domestic rates on rails.
PRESIDENT HARRIMAN

The spike Is a golden one and will be
driven by President Harriman. Afterward
the spike will be drawn and beautifully
engraved and given to Mr. Harriman.
LEONARD S. ALLEN DIES.
Former General Passenger Agent Passes
Away In Chicago.
CHICAGO, Nov. 21.—Leonard S. Allen,
formerly general passenger of the Sea
board Air Line, is dead at his home
here.
On account of ill health Mr. Allen re
signed his position, which ha had held tor
four years, in 1901, and since that time he
had resided in Chicago.
THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL.
Few People Know How Useful It Is In
Preserving Health and Beauty.
Nearly everybody knows that charcoal
is the safest and most efficient disinfec
tant and puriflr-r in nature, but few real
ize its value when taken into the human
system for the dame cleansing purpose.
Charcoal is a remedy that the more
you take of it the better; it is not a drug
at all, but simply absorbs the gases and
impurities always present in the stom
ach and intestines and carries them out
of the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath after
smoking, drinking or after eating onions
and other odorous vegetables.
Charcoal effectually clears and improves
the complexion, it whitens the teeth and
further acts as a natural and eminently
Bafe cathartic.
It absorbs the injurious gasrs which col
lect in the stomach and bowels; it disin
fects the mouth and throat from the poi
son of catarrh.
All druggists sell charcoal in one form
or another, but probably the best charcoal
and the most for the money is in Stuart's
Absorbent Lozenges; they are composed
of the finest powdered Willow charcoal
and other harmless antiseptics in tablet
form or rather In the form of large, pleas
ant tasting lozenges, the charcoal being
mixed with honey.
The daily use of these lozenge 3 will soon
tell in a much improved condition of the
general health, better complexion, sweeter
breath and purer blood, and the beauty of
it is, that no possible harm can result
from their continued use, but on the con
trary, great benefit.
A Buffalo physician in speaking of tha
benefits of charcoal, says: "I advise Stu
art's Absorbent Lozenges to all patieni*
suffering from gas in stomach and bow
ela. and to clear the complexion and pur
ify the breath, mouth and throat; I also
belteve the liver is greatly benefited by the
dally use of them; they cost but twecty
flve cents a box at drug stores, and al
though in some sense a patent prepara
tion, yet I believe I get more and better
charcoal in Stuart's Absorbent Lozenges
than in any of the ordinary charcoal tab
lets."
