Submarine Rams GunL...
In Maneuvers.
Bonlta In Mimio Attack Disables Flag
ship of Flotilla Sudden Appearance
Entirely Unexpected Submarines
Supposed to Be Far Out at Sea.
Provtncetowu, Mass., July 12. The
narrow escape of the gunboat Castlno
from beluK sunk by the submarine
Bonlta called attention todaflo the
fact that wonders In navigation be
neath the waves are being quietly
achieved which are as great, If not as
spectacular, as the feats of aviators
which are thrilling multitudes in many
places. But as the navigators of the
submarines operate beneath the sur
face of the ocean, the attention of the
public is rarely attracted to their dar
ing exploits.
The gunboat Castine, flagship of the
submarine flotilla, was rammed by the
submarine lioulta in the maneuvers
and was beached to prevent her from
sinking. No one on board was injured.
Two of the plates of the Castiuc
were loosened. Iier dynamo and boiler
compartments between frames No. 10
and No. Gl arc Hooded, but the bulk
heads are said to be holding Arm.
The accident hapiwned in a mimic
, attack on the Castlno by the subma
rines, the Bonlta apparently misjudg
ing the distance and striking the gun
boat with considerable force. The men
on both boats felt the impact and some
were momentarily stunned. The Bonlta
escaped with tho slight denting of a
portion of her armor and the loss of a
small section of her railing. i
The "attack" on the Castlno was en- i
tlrely unexpected. Several members of
the crew were In swimming when the ,
Bonlta suddenly rose beneath the gun-1
boat and as she came up scraped her
whole length across the bottom of the '
Water poured into the lower engine ;
room and the dynamo room compart- ,
incuts of tho Castine, flooding them
and threatening to extinguish the fires
under the boilers. Tho doors of the
water tight compartments were imme
diately closed and the Castine started
at full speed for the shore. She reached
the beach under her own steam and (
rested easily In shallow water. All her
crew remain on board. j
The submarines often disappear early
In the morning and do not return the '
entire day, some of their maneuvers
being on the surface and some beneath
At the time of tho accident not a '
submarine was In sight, and it was
supposed that they were all far out In
the bay. The others did not return un-'
til two or three hours after the Bonita
had struck the Castine.

in tho conference, but was prevented
by illness.
"In my opinion, as an International
ofllcer," Mr. Barrett said, "there is no
good ground for the recent report that
any combination will be formed at this
conference against the United States
or that there will be an nttack upon
its Latin-American policies."

Report That Spanish Pretender
May Marry Mlis Morgan.
London, July 12. Reynolds' Newspa
per in its personal columns says:
"It Isn't at all likely, judging from '
tlie frequency with which J. rierpont
Morgan's daughter Anno and Don
Jaime of Spain are seen together, that
they will soon make a match of it."
Don Jaime do Bourbon is forty years
old, tho son of the late Don Carlos de
Bourbon, and is therefore the preten
der to the Spanish throne. Ho Is an
ofllcer in the hussar regiment of Grod
no in tho Russian guards.
Miss Anne Morgan is interested In
sociological work in New Xork. She
has been in England for two months,

courts. Tills lynching has aroused the
city, and tho law abiding elements are

President Approves Collect
or's Gubernatorial Boom.
Outlook For Republican Party This
Fall Make Prospective Candidate
Somewhat Shy, but Mr. Taft
Takes Optimistic View.
Beverly, Mass., July 12. Perhaps
William Loeb, Jr., collector of tho port
of New York, didn't come up to Bev
erly to get tho indorsement of Presi
dent Taft on his embryo gubernatorial
boom, but he got it Just the same.
Tho president and the collector had
a conference In one of tho Whlto
House automobiles while tho chief exe
cutive was motoring over from tho
Evans cottage to tho Myopia golf links.
Later at luncheon nt the home of John
Hays Hammond they talked things
over once again. The president sug
gested to Mr. Loeb that he enter tho
race. Mr. Loeb, on the other hand,
was not enthusiastic over tho prospect
at first, but later admitted that after
all the Republican party's chance of
success might bo better than it looks
at present to some observers. It was
a!d that while the collector was not
an eager candidate ho would hardly
refuse tho nomination. According to
reliable sources Mr. Loeb left Beverly
for Boston nnd New York with tho
Idea of seeing Governor Hughes on
the return trip.
The conference with President Taft,
followed by that with the governor,
may determine his attitude, Mr.
Loeb's reluctance to get into tho fight
which politicians think is coming in
New York in the fall campaign was
based upon the belief that tills is not
Solng to be a good year in New York
for Republican candidates. The presl
dent admitted that there was some
sense in this, but was Inclined to take
the view that things were not nearly
as bad as painted or ns they appear
now. The opinion here is that Mr.
Loeb will eventually find his place nt
the head of the Republican ticket.
Just what President Taft might do
to aid Mr. Loeb if ho became a candi
date is uncertain. On one of his re
cent trips through New York state the
president told the people of Syracuse
that he would be back there this fall
to see tho state fair. This would af
ford Mr. Taft an excellent opportunity,
his friends say, to make his way of
thinking known. It is even possible
that ho may make other stops in New
York if ho went to Syracuse, and thus
ho might find time for several
speeches, all of which might bo de
signed to help the collector and the
Of other subjects of importance the
president and Loeb had but little time
to chat.
Loeb Is Silent.
New York, July 12. Deep interest is
being shown here today in the boom
for governor of William Loeb, Jr., and
politicians are curious to learn what
President Taft had to say concerning
the candidacy of the collector of tho
port nnd former Roosevelt private
Loeb Is silent. He will not say that
he does not want the nomination for
governor and Is just ns unwilling to
admit that he wants it.

Eighty Cent Bacon In France Ice
Cream $1.10 a Quart In London.
In these modern days meat is tho
staff of life, and one finds that tho
staff costs as much abroad us at home,
although over there they do not clamor
about tho prlco as we do. They mere
ly do without meat.
Tho cuts are different and called by
different names, and tho grades are
endless. In England tho poorest folk
can buy meat or meat bones for as low
as 4 cents or even 2 cents a pound.
And, too, thcro are often poor qualities
in good cuts, and tho British, with
characteristic Impertinence, refer to
tho worst qualities as "American,"
qulto regardless of their origin.
Tho best cuts of beef cost in London
whero they nro given tho unattrac
tive namo of rump steak 23 to 30
cents a pound, In Paris 30 to 31, in
Berlin from 32 to 38.
Bacon is tremendously dear. In
France cholco brands may mount to
80 cents, and ordinary' brands aro over
30 cents. In Engand bacon is now
about 30 cents, but is rapidly mounting,
the Increasing scarcity of pigs 4clng
responsible for this.
Leg of mutton in England costs over
20 cents, in Franco 23 to 3"0. Milk in
Paris is 11 cents a quart, in London 8
or 0. Plain water Ices cost In London
85 cents a quart and ice cream $1.10.

Is bad for the health, don't y' know!
In England good coffeo averages de
cidedly more than in America, 35 cents
being a cheap brand. In France it is
very much dearer, 40 cents a pound
for a really good blend being a bar
gain and a "speciallte" being over CO.
All common coffees abroad are loaded
with chicory, which costs 10 cents a
pound and adds great deepness of
color to tho brow.
Good tea costs less In England
than in America, ranging from 35 to
75 cents. In France it is very high
and always medicinal in taste, and a
dealer likes to ask over $1.25 a pound.
Butter ranges In all throo countries
from, say, 30 to 40 cents.
Sugar in England is C cents a pound.
In Franco it is a government monopo
ly and much higher. In London eat
ing chocolate, almost ns goad as tho
well known New York or Philadelphia
makes, costs 75 cents a pound. Robert
Shackleton in Saturday Evening Post.
The Height of Kings.
A remarkable feature about the
physiques of reigning European mon
nrchs is that they are nearly nil short
er than their consorts. King George
V. Is several inches shorter than Queen
Mary. Tho German empress is a tritle
taller than the kaiser, who always in
sists on tho empress sitting down when
they are photographed together. Czar
Nicholas II. looks quite small by the
side of tho czarlnn. Alfonso of Spain
is a head shorter than Queen Victoria
Eugenie, and tho king of Italy hardly
reaches to the shoulder of Queen Hele
na. The queen of Denmark, too, is a
good deal taller than her husband. Ex
ceptions to tho rule nro the king of
Norway nnd the new king of tho Bel
gians. The latter is six feet two
Indies in height and the tallest king in
Europe. London M. A. P.
Women Smokers In London.
Tho woman smoker, far from being
a result of a decadent civilization, is
merely a survival of a rougher and
harder life. Even today the women
who live tho hardest lives compatible
with twentieth century civilization
smoke Incessantly. Go Into any
tramps' lodging house and you will
find not only old and young women, but
bits of girls scarcely in their teens,
pulling contentedly, not nt cigarettes,
but clay pipes charged with black
twist tobacco. It is part of the eti
quette of tho "road" for tho men after
they have vigorously puffed at their
"dudeens" to hand them to the women
tramps who have no supply. London

as follows: The total of the human

000 aro nominally Christian, 175,290,
000 aro Mohammedans, 10,800,000 are
Jews, and 823,420,000 are classed as
heathen. Of these latter 300.000,000
aro Confucians, 214,000.000 are 'bra
hmins, nnd 121,000,000 are Buddnists.
Others adhere to various strange re
ligious cults. Out of every 1,000 in
habitants of the earth there are nomi
nally 340 Christians, Hi Mohamme
