to work splendidly, and when it was

from the northwest increased to a gale
and a driving snow storm set in. The
airship, unable to force its way
against the storm or even to hold its
own, was beaten back southeastward
over the mainland of Spitzbergen.
So precarious was the situation of
the party in the car that Mr. Wed

A rescue party from the steamer

was taken to pieces in order to enable
the rescuers to transport them over
the ice hills and fissures to the sea.
After two clays' work this was suc

SENATOR-ELECT WILLIAMS GETS A
CHALLENGE TO INTELLECTUAL DUEL
PRINCE HELD FOR TREASON
Leader of Russian Moderates Accusei
St. Petersburg, Sept. 14. Prince Eu
gene Troubetskoy , the leader of tin1
moderates, has been indicted on the
charge of high treason for writing an
article, which appeared In a weekly
paper of Moscow, defending the late
parliament and saying the government
committed an Irreparable mistake ia
dissolving that body and proclaiming
a new electoral law. The prince is a
councillor of the empire and at or
time was a candidate for a portfolio
in Premier Stolypin's cabinet.
Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 14. Unless the
plans go askew it will be left to a
learned board of university professors
to decide by an academic examination
what the answer is to two great ques
tions which for some time being have
driven politics into the background in
this part of the country. The ques
Is "Tappy" Ignorant?
Is Williams a "whisky soak?"
The "Tappy" of the first question
represents Sidney Caesar Tapp, "-editor
of the American Republic, and the Wil
liams of the second represents the
newly elected senator from 'Mississippi
and democratic leader in the lower
house of congress.
Williams has declared "Tappy Is Ig
norant"," arid Tapp has retorted "Wil
Hams -Is a whisky soak."
Arguments for and- against eacfi
proposition have been thrown around
In hot letters and editorials for 9om3
time, until Editor Tapp has decided
to settle the question of his ignorance
or erudition, and likewise that of Mr
Williams, by a conclusive test of scho
lie has formally challenged the ner
senator to compete in an examination
with him on either the principles of
American government, the history cf
England, the history of Greece, ofj
Rome, or any other old history that
living man has heard about.
Tapp stipulates that a board of pro
fessors from Harvard, Princeton and
Vale shall preside at the examination
and act as judges in the intellectual
Slur on Krmlitlon Annoyn.
Tapp in a recent editorial describe 1
John Sharp Williams as a "whisky
soak." This epithet angered friends
of Williams in Mississippi, and they
began writing letters to Tapp in which
he was called a "contemptible cur"
and charge was made that he had
neveY been to college. This latter
charge greatly annoyed Tapp, who
says he has a college diploma and Is
as erudite as they "make them outside
