from most of the European powers have
advised the Ottoman government to
make an effort to eorue to terms with
the Balkan allies. The Hussion ambas
sador eoupled his advice' with a warn

As Soon as They Desire It, Is the Recom
mendation of Chief Mclntyre of
. the Bureau of Insular
, Affairs. . . - ,
Washington, D. C, Dec. 30. Approval
of the extension of vocational educa
tion in the Philippines and the imnieili
ate grant of American citizenship to
those Porto Ricans desiring it, constitute
the principal features m the annual re-
port of Brigadier-General Frank .Mcln
tyre, chief of the bureau of insular-affairs.
In his annual report, made public
yesterday. General Mclntyre renews "the
recommendation for congressional action
looking to the biennial inspection of
, the insular possessions by a board of
visitors made up of representatives of
the executive and legislative branches of
the government.
Discussing education in the Philippines
and the refusal of Congress to extend
an appropriation to help in this work,
General Mclntyre makes no criticism of
this attitude on the part of the national
legislature, but points out that such
financial assistance might "lead to de
' pendence upon this source of revenue and
' result in complications of a more or less
serious character if later this assistance I
1 were denied."
"It is estimated," General Mclntyre
continues, "that probably one-third of
.ie children of school ago are now be
iing afforded opportunities to acquire at
least an elementary education; and
while this leaves a great number still to
lie reached, many of whom must pass
their whole lives without the benefits
of education, it is of no less importance
that progress along other lines contrib
ute simultaneously with the advance in
learning, to raising the standards of liv
ing in the Philippines.
Improved sanitary conditions, new
means of communication that will open
up regions impracticable to reach now,
and other public works are not only
essential on their own account, but will
permit educational facilities to be sup
plied where it is impossible to furnish
them now, except at unwarranted ex
pense. ''Philippine standards of living are only
to be raised and fhilippine progress gen
erally to be encouraged by industrial
development of the Filipino people. The
Philippine government has well recog
nized this, and a notable feature of its
education is the opportunities it affords
for vocational instruction. There is now
an enrollment of about 4"0.000 Filipino
students in industrial courses and the
opportunities generally fur this impor
tant instruction compare favorably with
opportunities for such education in the
United States."
English which is spoken and written
by more natives than eak and write
any other language will, according to the
reHrt. become the oflicial court language
on January 1, as it hmg has been the
official language in the other branches
of the government.
As to Porto Kican citizenship. General
Mclntyre says it is practically the testi

. 'Wellington, D. C. Dec 30. -A New
Year's gift by the Aiuericiin government
to the American people will be a thor

Fid lowing consideration of the subject
in a general way for a third of a cen
tury; Congress, last August, authorized
the postmaster general to establihh the
new system on .lanuury 1st, 1013.
In actual operation, it is expected that
th parcel post will bring the factory
and the farm into closer touch with the
consumer, and that it may reduce the
cost of living. The largest city mid
the most obscure huiulct alike will enjoy
the advantages of the parcel post. It
will be opeii to all on precisely equal
The new system will be a direct com
petitor of the express companies, par
ticularly on small package business. By
it, shippers practically may send from
their own doors, parcels to anv on-; of

, J he rate ol postage for parcel post.
mutter differs radically from those of
other classes of mail. First, second mid
third class mail matter now is trans
ported at a Hat rate for anv distance.
Parcel post rates are based upon a series
or zones and thev increase as the. ill
tance increases, f he first zone includes
all. territory 'within a radius of .ipprox
iniately 50 miles from the postollicj at
which the parcel may lie mailed; the
second, 150 miles; the third, .'100 mites;
the fourth, 000 miles; the fifth, ),MI0
miles; the sixth, 1,400 miles; the
seventh, 1.800 miles; and the eighth, all
territory beyond 1,800 miles.
Jiy the terms of the law, al matter not
now embraced in the iirst, second and
third, classes of mail matter may fx? for
warded by parcel post, provided a single
package does not exceed 1 1 pounds in
weight or is not greater in dimensions
than 72 inches in combined length and
girth, and is not of such a character .as
to injure postal employes or damage;
equipment or other mail matter. , In a
word, it will include all kinds of mer
chandise. , "
The rates are computed on the dis
tance und on the weight of the package
in pounds. Provision is made however,
for small packages weighing from one
to four ounces, which may be sent at
a flat rate of one cent for each ounce;
bht for packages weighing more than
four ounces the pound rate of postugo
ithiti the postal district of any post-
office a local rate of five cents for the
first pound and one cent for each addi

rate is five cents for the first pound and
three cents for each additional pound.
This rate increases with the distance un

in the opinion of the postal exnens
the new service will be the most gigantic
transportation proposition ever under

will extend over more than 1,435.000
miles of transportation lines, including
233,800 miles of railways, 164,309 miles
of star routes. miles of steamboat
lines, and 1,007,772, miles of rural mail
For parcel post matter, a distinctive
set of postage stamps has been provided.
These distinctive stamps must be used
fpr all parcel post matter. If the pack
ages bear ordinary postage stamps tl'.ey
will be held for postage.

Former Refused To Be Saved Without

years old, children of Mr. and Mis.
.lames Brown of Harrington street, Con
cord Junction, broke through tl ice
on the pond in the rear of the Strath
more mills at the Junction about 3:30
yesterday afternoon and were drowned.
John was skating and drawing his
little sister on a sled when the ice broke
and both went into the water. James
and Catherine Brown, an older brother
and sister, who had been watching from
the edge of the pond, ran out to help
them and also fell into the water.
Johu could have saved himself by
grasping the hockey sticks and poles
winch other skaters extended to him.
but he refused assistance to save the
little girl and persisted in that effort
until lie, too, was drowned.
James ami Catherine were rescued
with some difficulty by Carl and An
drew Nolan, two of the skaters. Carl
Nolan, who had two previous rescues
to his credit, jumped into the icy water,
fully dressed, and with his brother's
help succeeded in getting the two chil
dlen onto the solid ice.
The police were notified and grappled
for the bodies. Before nightfall they
had recovered John's body, but Mar
garet's is still in the pond. Dr. Henry
J. Walcott of Concord, medical exam

Machine Went Wrong at Los Angeles
Yesterday Afternoon.
1 Los Angeles, Cal., Dec. 30. Hal Shain,
a well-known automobile racer, sustained
injuries that caused his death in half an
hour, tlireo others were seriously hurt,
and a number slightly cut and bruised,
when Sham's machine shot out of the
cup-shaped track on the concession pier
at Venice yesterday afternoon, and
plunged into the crowd.
Sham had. been one of the chief at
tractions at Venice because of the small
size of the track on which he rode and
the great speed at which he traveled.
The cup is 70 feet in diameter at the
top, and it required a speed of .w miles
an hour to keep an automobile on the
almost perpendicular track. A thin red
lipe a foot below the top served as "the
dead tire line for the driver.
Shain lost control of his machine, and
it went over the "dead line.' After
splintering several railing posts it then
dropped to the bottom of the cup and
shot to the top again and plunged on
through the railing and among the spec
tator. Then the automobile fell back
with Shain underneath.
