,,'St Albans, Vt, Nov .12. -That the
grave discovered on the northern
Labrador coast by Captain Chalker, a
New Foundland fishing skipper con
tains the remains of a New Found
land fisherman and not those of An
dree, the Swedish explorer, was the
opinion expressed to-day by Dr Wil
fred T. Grenfell, the well known doc
tor and missionary of the Labrador
coast who is in this city. Dr Gren
fell said to-day that the name "An
sty," which according to Captain
Chalker was inscribed on the cross
raised above the grave is a common
one among New Foundland fisher
men who follow their -calling on the
Labrador shore. . He believes that the
body buried .near Cape Mugford is
that of sonie fisherman 'who died on
board his vessel and was burled by
his dory mates. Dr Grenfell says
that there are many such graves
along the coast of Labrador and he,
himself, has assisted at many such

for the socialist cause, it is announc
ed by -that element in the edemionTjbin yofctinlr;
that , there will be no fight iu this
convention of the federation between
the- socialists and their opponents.
Heretofore this contest, has been a
leading feature of the annual meet
ings and President Gompers has
been the mark of assault. ' Now the
socialists believe that a start has
been made by the federation which
will bring the labor movement of the
country to their party. The conven
tion resumed its sessions this morn
ing after taking a day off to visit
the printers home at Colorado
Springs. The programme began with
the addresses of the fraternal dele

The Tulip Craza. -About
the middle of the seventeenth
century the tulip became known In
Germany.' and a scientist named Ges-
ner gives the first description of his
Bower. First only the yellow variety
was known, and then other colors were
produced by crossing. The Dutch, par
ticularly the citizens of Haarlem, pro
duced the most wonderful varieties of
this flower and obtained enormous
prices for them. . .
In 1634 the trade in tulips assumed a
peculiar turn. It degenerated Into a
sort of a game of chance, so that in
1673 the authorities felt called upon to
Interfere and to issue edits against
extravagance in tulips, as they former
ly bad against trains and laces. This
Interference would seem to be justified
if one reads that lu 1C0C a single flower
of this sort, called the Vleeorl, was
paid for with two cargoes of wheat,
four cargoes of rye, four , fat oxen,
eight fat hogs, twelve fat sheep, two
casks of wine, four barrels of beer,
two tons of butter, 1,000 pounds of
cheese, a complete bed. a suit of cloth
ing and a silver tankard.
Another bulb, the Semper Augustus,
was paid for with 4,000 gold guilders
and coach with a double team of
horses. In Haarlem the tulip erase
reached Its height In the decade from
1630 to 1040, when a price of 12,000
gold guilders (about $9,000 American
money) Is recorded for a single bulb.

Boston, Nov 12. King Alfonso of
Spain will send to Marblehuad In the
summer of 1910 a small yacht of the
Sonder class to participate in an in
ternational" match, the preliminary
arrangements for which have been
completed between the Eastern
Yacht club and the Federation of
Spanish Yacht Clubs. .
This, announcement is a result, of
the visit to Spain last summer of an
American team . of three . Sonder
yachts. The races resulted favora
bly for the Spaniards, although the
Americans took some minor prizes.
A return match in American wators
would have been held the coming
summer had not the Eastern Yacht
club previously arranged for a match
with the Germans, against whom
they have twice raced. Following
the acceptance of an invitation for
an international match, the National
Spanish Yachting association will
send three boats to meet the Ameri
cans. - Two ot these will represent
the San Sebastian and Bilbao -lubci
respectively, and the third will be
sent by King Alfonso.
The race Is thus given an official
character and unquestionably a
number, of Spanish dignitaries will
make it the occasion of a visit to
this country.
As In the German-American match
for next year, the Eastern Yacht olub
will send out invitations to aU Amer
ican yacht clubs to build boats for
the trial races for the selection t
three American defenders. The
crews must be native born citizens
of their country they represent, the
boats must be built and outfitted ir
their country, of materials manufac
tured there, even to the canvas of
wnich their sails are made.

It Is on record that a swarm of bees
as weapons of war were used not once,
but twlceaud with tbe best possible
effect. When Themlseyra, In Pontns,
was besieged by Lucnllus, tbe Romans
employed turrets, built mounds and
made huge mines beneath tbe city.
While they were creating tbe mine
the people of TbemUeyra dug down
through, the earth to the mines and
cast In upon the Roman workers bears
and other wild animals, together with
a swarm of bees.- History repeated It
self In England when tbe Danes ami
Norwegians made their attack upon
Chester about ten centuries since The
town was held by tbe Saxons and some
Gallic allies, who tried stones and boil
ing water upon tbe besiegers without
effect As a last resource they collect
ed all the beehives tnd upset them into
the . enemy's camp beneath the city
wall. This had the effect ot making
things "ham," so to speak, and it Is re
corded that the enemy were so badly
stung that they could move neither

General Meyer announced to-day that
the postal deficit for the fiscal year

greater than the previous year) and
the expenditures $208,351,886. The
deficit 1b the largest in the history ot
the postofflce department. An analy
sis of th eflgures shows that $9,891,

rate ot compensation authorized by
congress for employes in various de
partments. The postmaster general said that
In his annual report be would call
the attention of congress to the fact
that he is "firmly convinced that the
establishment of a special local par
cel poBt confined to rural routes
tend to wipe out the postal deficit
and would finally make the rural
delivery self sustaining besides being
of convenience to the farmer and a
boon to the retail country merchant."
"I feel," added Mr Meyer, "that
from an administrative and business
viewpoint, it Is most desirable that
such legislation beenacted."

Washington, Nov 12. The hear
ings on schedule "A" of the Dinsley
tariff law held before the bous com
mittee on ways and means in iho
paat few days have .emphasized the
fact that the safeguarding of the in
ternal revenue tax levied on alsohol
or distilled spirits and the imposition
of a high rate of duty on these ar
ticles la one of the manifest purposes
of the tariff law. Among; the sug
gested changes in the wording of
the law which have been determined
upon as the result of a thorough In
vestigation of court decisions are
many affecting articles containing al
cohol or in the preparation of which
alcohol is used. This attitude of the
committee with regard to alcohol and
distilled spirits is in accord with the
consistent policy of congress in the
enactment of tariff laws in the naf.
This morning the committee began
us nearing on schedule H covering
"spirits, wines and other beverages,"
and It is evident from the "notes on
tariff revision" prepared for the use
of the committee that a similar atti
tude wyi be maintained in tho pro
posed revision of this scheddule.
President Roosevelt yesterday re
ceived a copy of the book entitled
"Notes on Tariff Revision," which
contains over 1,000 pages of Infor
mation and which was prepared un
der the direction of the clerk ot the
committee on ways and means. The
president's attitude on the subject
of revision is well known and it Is
expected that he will convey to the
committee on ways .and means some
expression of his views on the
changes proposed for further protec
