Without warning the famous Cunarder Lusitania was torpedoed off the Irish coast yesterday. She sank in eight minutes, but, it is believed, many of the passengers have been saved. The United States is seething with anger at this crim^ against neutral

passengers, including women and children. The pirates' disregard of the lives of Americans will undoubtedly compel President Wilson to take immedifite and drastic actiom, ' Amongst the passengers were many famous Britons and Americans.

Lusitania*s Escape from Pursuing German Cruiser by Lying Hidden in Fog Bank.

Complete Failure of German Attack in the Argonne.

LEMSOS, April 28.—-'XhroughoTit tlie night of kpnl 26 tlie TTJITJS harassed OUT lines, creeping up and en^aeaYOTiTing to snipe tlie Australians and Slew Zealandei's in theic shelter trenches, but never daring to press home an attack, althongli in overwhelming numbers compared to oni ioTce aslioxe, At OM section of the line tiiey paid dearly for their temerity, for the New Zealand-ers cliarged them with the bayonet and drove them off in disDidei. • The TuTlfs had evidently intended to drive us into the sea on the previous day by a great concentration of infantry, snpported by an niiceasiirg shrapnel fire, expecting to find a line thinly held by men exhausted by their losses and exertions on the day of landing. Dut they were soon disilluaionecl, tor these Australians and New ZealandoTS were determined from the Ju-st rather to die to a man than sm-iender the ground so dearly won. LIKE A HAILSTORM. Throughout the entire day of April 27 the enemy resorted to new tactics in the hope ot driving us off the shore and to prevent supphes and reinforcements reaching the beach. The Turkish gunners tried to put a great curtain of shrapnel over the sea between the warships and the transports and the shore. It was as if a great hailstorm had suddenly come on. But this hail of lead made not the smallest difference to the gallant crews of the pmnaces, boats, Jighters and tugs, manned by men ot the Eoyal Navy. • •• ^ e -^ There was never any hesitation or delay tor the stonn to moderate. They took oust as much notice of this hail of bullets as they would of a tropical thunderstorm. Throughout the day the warships, kepi up an incessant fire on any of thci encmy'^s infantry who attempted to advance. "CHRISTIANS ARISE" SHIP.

GENERALS PRAISE OF TROOPS. General Birdwood told me he could not praise the courage, endurance and soldierly qualities of his Colonials enough. He said the manner in which they hung on to the position the first day and night was a magnificent feat, which has seldom, if ever, been surpassed. ,, -, , i These Colonials are extraordinarily cool and callous under fire, often exposing themselves rather than taking the trouble to keep in under

The sunken I.usitania seemed fated for an adventurous career. Just after war was declared the giaut liner had an exciting escape from the Karlsruhe in the North AtlanticShe owed her escape from almost certain destruction owing to the quick wit and cleverness of Captain Dow who was then in eommandThe Lusitania had.left Mew York some hours and, with her lights dimmed, was steaming on her usual northward course. Captain How was on the bridge. Suddenly, as the darkness dissolved a little, he made out a. black hulk on his starboard bow. Closer inspection proved it to-be the German cruiser Karlsruhe. The Lusitania made a half-turn and ran south. Meanwhile she sent out wireless calls to the British cruiser Essex.

Afterwards Captain Bow laughed over the incident, " I didn't think she'd sink us," he said, " b u t I knew she'd run us ashore if she got the chance, and the boat would then be a total loss."

Tbe battle for Ypres, for the moment, takes the form of big gun duels, as the following message shows : — PARIS, May 7.—This afternoon's French ofFi-' eial communique says : — A German attack was delivered at the close of yesterday in the Argonne at Bagatelle. It completely failed. On the rest of the front, espeeialJy north of Ypres and in the region ot Vauquois, there have been violent artillery duels.—Renter.


As it grew lighter it was seen that the German cruiser was in pursuit. A string of bunting bore the flaunting message: "You are captured." The Karlsruhe was cutting along at a good twenty-four knots, but the British liner was holding her own. A fog bank loomed ahead. In the meantime Captain DoW had picked up the Essex by wireless. He was advised to head out to sea, as tlie Leipzig was waiting for the fugitive off the Atlantic "highlands." Captain Dow realised that if he took the advice of the Essex he would be cutting across the course of the Karlsruhe, He decided to risk things and go straight ahead and plunged into the fog bank. When she reached the mist, which covered her like a pall, her engines were stopped and her watch bells silenced. She lay there still and dark and silent for some time; then she slowly turned on her heel and made off at full speed

on her formei' noith-eastward course. The
Karlsruhe was not seen again.

Japan Reported To Have Reached a Satisfactory Agreement with China.
A telegram from Tokio, quoted in a New York Exchange message, says that peace is now assured betvv-een Japan and China, Japan having withdrawn the demands that were still refused by China. ToKio, May 6.—The ultimatum to China expires at 6 p.m. on Sunday. The ultimatum is a somewhat lengthy document, closely detailing the reasons for its presentation and seeking to show that every diplomatic procedure has been exhausted, Orders have been issued for the array and navy to be in readiness to proceed to given points at an hour's notice.—Renter. PEKIN, May 7.—I learn unofficially at Pekin that the Chinese reply to the Japanese ultimatum demanded the restoration of Tsingtau at the termination of the war, indemnification for the damage done to the Chinese during the operations that resulted in the capture of Tsingtau, and a pledge from Japan that China shall have representatives at the Peace-Conference, The Japanese Government, I learn further, regard the reply as unfriendly, and as evinehig an irreconcilable attitude.—Exchange.

the shelter of the cliff.

One of the strangest sights of all was to see numbers of them bathing in the sea with the shrapnel bursting-all around them. These Colonial divisions now occupy a position, and have entrenched it so thorouglily that all the Turks in Thrace and Gallipoli will never turn them out of it. _ _ E. ASHMEAD-BARTLETT.

As foretold in The Daily MArror, London has to face another rise in the jiriee of bread. Mr. Finch, the secretary of the London Master Bakers' Protection Socletyj stated yesterday that the cost per quartern next Monday would be 9d.—a rise of a halfpenny. He explained that it was due to ,tlie continued advance in the price of flour and the increased wages paid to the operatives as a war bonus.

No worthy war fund has failed to secure the support of the King and Queen. Their Majesties are specially interested in the Officers' Families Fund, and they will be present on Tuesday next at the matinee performance of " The Man Who Stayed at Home," in aid of the fund, at the Palace Theatre. This fund assists the wives and dependent relatives of ofEJcers in monetary difficulties through the war and provides prompt financial aid to officers' widows and orphans. Ably organised by a sub-committee consisting of Countess Koberts, I.ady Mount-Stephen, Lady Northcliffe, Mrs. Seymour Corkran, Mrs. Austen Chamberlain and Miss Fardell (hon. secretary), the matinee is sure to be a great Success.

The Lusitania's dramatic voyage from New York to Liverpool two months ago, when, as a reply to the sea Huns' policy of " frightfulness," she hoisted the Araeiiean flag near the Irish coast, will he recalled. A British flag was flown by the Lusitama all the way across the Atlantic, and then, without any announcement of any kind, the Stars and Stripes was hauled up in its place. This action of Captain Dow met with the hearty commendation of Americans who had FOE'S TWO ATTACKS FAIL. friends and relations aboard the Inier.

Kinsale, others steering a course for Queenstown. Several boatloads of survivors were being towed into Kinsale by Greek steamer, Several rescuing steamers had been sighted laden with passengers making towards Kinsale and Queenstown.

The above messages received this morning were tiie first to give definite news of survivors of the famous Cunard liner Lu%itania, which was torpedoed by a German submarine off the Old Head of Kinsale, Ireland, yesterday afternoon, On board the Lusitania there were 1,918 souls— 1,253 passengers and 665 crew. It is therefore to be feared that there has been a considerable loss of life. Our pirate foes have thus carried out their threat of murder and committed the foulest of a long series of misdeeds. No notice was given by the pirates before they torpedoed the Lusitania, which sank in eight minutes. She was a vessel of 30,396 tons, and was built in 1907, costing £1,250,000. J\s far as could be learned in Liverpool last night, the Lusitania had no guns on board. The boat was f u l l of important and wealthy people, among the best kiiown being WSr. Alfred Vanderbilt, Mr. Charles Frohman and Mr. D. A, Thomas, the Welsh coal magnate.

Mr. Ernest Cowper, a Toronto journalist, who was coming across with liis editor on business, stated that a sharp look-out had been kept Cor enemy craft when Ireland was being approached. 1 He was chatting with a friend at about two o'clock, and though he just got a glimpse of the conning tower of a submarine about a thousand yards distant, he only remarked the circumstance to his friend when he noticed the track of a torpedo. The Lusitania was struck forward. Tliete was a loud explosion and portions of the splintered hull were sent flying into the air.

7he Story of an Ambitious Marriage

must look on me aa a sort of Victorian survival! At my age a man can only expect to be loved for his money, and you're not the sort of girl to marry a man for that." Marjbrie threw him'a grateful glance. It was good to know that one man at least understood how little she cared for money. But there was a sharp little pain at her heart, Uupert had doubted her motives where this man would have scorned to do so. For the moment she forgot that,the one man had known her all her life, the other only for a few short weeks. " I t ' s not that,- Mr, Redmayne," she said, eagerly; " I don't look on you as old at all. In fact, you're not nearly so old as some of the young men here," ,she added, with a glance at a bored-looking youth at the next table; " b u t there's a particular reason, . , . Oho day I'll tell you—but not now. I couldn't just now," She added, hurriedly. ' Philip Kedmayne guessed that reason to be another man. This then was the trouble he had divined almost at first glance. But what sort of man could he be who could be loved by such a girl as Marjorie Preseott without being ready to fall on his knees before her ?—he wondered as he fixed his eyes hungrily on her face. " I , d o wish you hadn't said that," added Marjorie in a troubled tone. " It has spoilt everything." The man pulled Himself hastily together. " B u t it must not spoil, everything," he said with a friendly smile. " Please forget what I have said, Miss Marjorie, and let me be your friend instead," His companion looked at him doubtfully, She badly wanted a friend just then—but not one who might try to play the lover. Besides, it was hardly fair to him. . , ; • . Redmayne noticed her hesitation and divined her thought. " I mean it," he said earnestly. " I was an ass to imagine even for a minute that you might care'for me in that way. If you will have me for a friend I promise you I won't bother you—ever I " His sinile was so frank and friendly that the girl felt reassured. " If you really mean it " she began. " But I do 1 Is it a bargain ? " heasked holding out his hand across the table. She took it a little nervously. " Very well, it's a bargain," she agreed. "Well, then," said Redmayne briskly, "since I m your fnehd and also very much older than you, I am going to make some suggestions. It's nonsense you thinking you can be a nursery governess, or a shorthand typist, or anything like that, and you must not dream of going on the stage. ' It's a dog's Hfe for a girl. But there must be something you can do. • . . ." He considered her attentively for a moment. Hia gaKe travelled all over her and rested on the slim white hand that lay on the table. " I have it," he said.. '.'^Why not a manicurist?" Marjorie raised her fair head hopefully, " I never thought of that; but I'm afraid 1 don't know very much about it," she added as an after-thought, "though I have to go to a manicurist once a week myself 1" She considered the suggestion. " You would soon learn." Redmayne swept aside her objection with a wave of his hand. "They wouldn't pay you very much at first, of course, but you would very' soon get on. As a matter of fact "—he hesitated—" I happen'to know slightly the manageress of a place in Bondstreet, I could give you an introduction. She might be able to help, or at least advise, you." Marjorie's eyes sparkled. " That would be awfully good of you," she said, giving him a grateful look from her deep blue eyes, " but I don't know why you should bother '' "Real friends always help each other," Redmayne interrupted. They rose from the table and passed out into the hotel lounge, where Redm'ayne paiised to Write a formal note of introduction, to Miss Chester, the manageress at Manon's, Then he put Marjorie into a taxi and gave the driver the address in Bond-street. " Good luck ! " he called after her, " and let me know how you get on." Then, without a blush, he went to the telephone and, ringing up Manon's, asked to speak to Miss Chester. • " I ' m Philip Redmayne," he said when Miss Chester'3 voice answered him at the other end of the wire. " A young lady will be round to see you in a few minutes bringing an introduction from me. You are to engage her as a pupil assistant—do you hear? Yes—at a salary of—" he considered for a moment. It would not do to name too large a sum or Marjorie might be auspicious—" Well, say, three pounds a week to begin with—yes, I said three pounds, Miss Chester," as .an exclamation reached him through the instrument. " It must be done tactfully, mind," he continued, " No, of course, my name is not to be mentioned—on no account 1 You understand? That's right—Good afternoon." . Philip Redmayne's face wore a pleased smile as he left the telephone box. pushed v b a c k his chair and lighted a fresh cigarette. S i n c e that day when ho had left for the North he had been working hard. He had spent long days in Edinburgh c 16 s eted - in musty libraries in close consultation with, the Scottish advocates and soli-' citors. Gradually he had begun to see d a y l i g h t through the complicated tangle of the case. He had just finished a summary which he had been preparing for the senior counsel. lie stretched himself and walked over to the window. Work 1 After all,, there was nothing like it to dull a gnawing pain at one's heart. It helped . to keep , one's thoughts off painful subjects that were best left alone. Xerney had taken to work as to a drug in order, to blot~ out the tantalising picture of Marjorie from his heart. But Marjorie would not be blotted out. Whenever his mind' relaxed for a single minute, whenever he paused, too tired to wrestle any further with the intricacies of the ease, her memory came back to torture him, He seemed at times to feel her actual presence, to breathe the Intoxicating perfume of her hair, Once he put out his hand to touch her, only to find her vanished into thin air. . , . Of Marjorie's visit to his rooms he knew nothing. „ Richards had dismissed himself in liis master's absence. He had not troubled to' let Kerney know about the visit of the young lady who had behaved so strangely. Rupert paced up and down the room, his hands thrust into his pockets, his forehead creased with thought. He stopped before the fireplace and gazed for the thousandth time at a photograph of Marjorie that stood on the mantelshelf, It was ah excellent photograph that managed to convey all the springlike freshness of the girl. , He compared her to a sweet-scented Do not bursting into h e gr^SLt new flower just omit t o read t glorious blossom.

Her mother, whose chief ambition has been that her daughter should. make a brilliant marriage. RUPERT KERNEY. A straightforward, unassuming young barrister, who is directly connected with the peerage. , A CHARMIKG- girl in white is standing on the ^^ balcony of a private hotel in Bayawater, loolfias down at the busy traffic and enjoying the fragrance of the night. There i^ something oddlx auggeativo of oaptivity about the graceful white figure leaning on the baJustrade. The voice of her mother, the proprietress of the hotels, calls to her. " Come in, Marjorie. It a time you wer6 in bed," The giri makes a gesture of impatience, and then steps through the long open window, . In the brilliant iight of the room it ia easy to see why people's eyes often look at Marjorie Prescott. Her beauty makes her stand out anywhere, Ever since she had grown up her mother liad placed all her hopea in her. The girl herself was free and . ujiafFected, ana looked it; but Mrs. Prescott had •long ago made up her mind that Marjorie should make a great match, • " •-

Our Portrait is of Miss Burton, of 4 0 / Newgate St, Beccles. Suffolk, whose mother writes—
" I think it is only due to you to let you know of-the wonderful cure your.medicine, ' Clarke's Blood Mixture,' has effected in the case of my little girl. Some years ago she had a bad • fall, which brought on a





On her way to her room a yoiing man named Charlie Eston stops her and asks to be allowed to present hia friend, Rupert Kemey. Kerney is a well-knit young fellow, with a cleancat, clean-shaven, mobile face. Directly he greets her he recognises her as si girl be had met camping out with other , girls the previous summer, and whose charming image he had never been able to forget. The girl is equally delighted to see him. It is obvious that Eerney is badly hit, Bxton seeing how serious Kerney is, promises that be will do what he can.tor him. Rupert, Kerney is really old Lord Cressingham's nephew and heir, and Exton'a quick brain seizes at the opportunity to do himself a bit of' gbod. He is considerably in arrears with his bill at the hotel, and goes to eeo Mrs. Prescott at once, Mrs. Prescott is aiiite frank, and tells Eston that if he can help her materialise and bring about a match between Marjorie and Kemey he will not be forgotten. This is not difficult, as Kerney is very much in love indeed. The young people see a tremendous lot of each other. Finally, Rupert Kernoy declares his love to Marjorie. He pleads p.asaionately. " Sweetheart," he avers, " I will do my beat to make you happy." Marjorio consents. " Rupert," she says, " I have never cared for any man but you." The wedding is hastened. After the ceremony the bride and bridegroom go back to the hotel with the guesta, Mrs, Prescott is proudly happy; her dearest ambitions are realised. Passing through a room she glances idly at a society paper. She gets a terrible shock; for in it is the announcement of Lord Cressingham's marriage to Lesie Moreen, of the Hilarity Theatre! Mrs. Prescott is terribly upset; she sees in it the doom of her son-in-law'a oliancea of the succession, As quickly as possible she shows the paper to Marjorie, and '••ells her to show it to Rupert, Wondering a little, she does so. Her husband only laughs. " I t doesn't matter," he says; "he would never have lef+ me anything." Mrs. Ptescott comes up and bursts into tears. " I thought you were Lord Cressingham'a heir," she sobs, "and now everything is mined." , Rupert Kerney stands' looking from mother to daughter. He stares at his wife. He has gone very white. Mrs. Prescott, in her bitter disappointment, proceeds to say more to Kerney than she really meant. She practically tells him that Marjorie married him for his prospects. All Kerney a world tumbles about him. He ia dazed for the time being. Then be says, heavily, " I will not come back until I can keep my wife in the style she expects." and walkg out of the room, Marjorie, who really loves her husband, is brokenhearted. Despite her mother's protests, she announces her intention of going after him, " I am going to find him, and teli him that I love him," she says. Kerney ^oes straight to hia rooms, and accepts a big law case in Scotland. He, ia just leaving when a letter comes. It ia from a girl named Leonore. for whom he had had a sentimental affection years befpre. She says she is now free, and asks him to come to her. He throws the letter on the table and goea out, Marjorie follows him' to his rooms and sees this letter. She is terribly upset, and, returning home tells hex mother that she can no longer be a burden to her, and, as she seems to be of no use to anybody, she will try to do something,in the world. In searching for work she meets Philip Eedmayne, a middle-aged man, whom she had known since a child. She lunches with him, and he startles her, by suddenly proposing to her. A CHANCE. "MARJOEIE raised her hands as though to -^'-*- ward off a blow. " Oh, please—please don't!" she cried, Where they were sitting they could not easily be observed by the other people in the restaurant, Redmayne leaned across the table and looked full into her eybs, ".Don't you think you could ever care for me at all?" he asked. The girl looked up at hijn with troubled e^es and shook her head. " Not like that," she said, decisively. " But that's not the reason. I can't tell you—please don't ask me," She ended on a n'ote of entreaty. •Redmayno sat still for a moment with tight^ ened lips. Then, he made a little movement of his shoulders. " Well, I hardly expected you would," he said, with a rather nervoua laugh. "Of course, I'm much too old for you. You

She had to go into hospital and be laid straight'out with weights on her feet. After., laying three, months a large • abscess came up, and .she had to un. dergo an operation. The wound was open four month's, and as soon as it got better another large abscisss came up worse than ever, and she had to undergo another operation, more ' severe than the first. She had then boeri in bed 11 months. Three weeks after the last operation I liad to take her horrie, as the doctor said they could do her no more good. She was



Like a Little Skeleton
and none of us thought she would live the week out. The same night I brought her home I bought her a bottle of ' Clarke's Blood Mixture.' The first bottle cased the pain in her leg, and the corrui)tion it sent out of the wound I'll never forget. It came out quite, freely, she gradually got better, and by the end of four months she could walk across the room. alone, and now she can walk about a lot. She has put on flesh Splendidly, and got a good appetite. She has had eight bottles in all. The wound is healed up.quite soundly, and she has . no pain or stiffness of any kind in her leg now. lOveryone says she is a marvel."—(Signed) Mrs. .Burton, 40, New- • gate Street, Beccles, Suffolk.

T H E CALLER. IDUPERT KERNEY was in his study in Arun• " del-court, Temple. There was a litter of papers on the table beside him. His desk and all the surrounding chairs were piled high with heavy, forbidding-looking law books.. He had sat there for some hours, covering sheet after sheet of paper with his heat, clear handwriting. At last he gave a eigh of relief and flung down T h e r « wilt be another (Translation, dramatic and all other rights eeott^d.) his pen. He ran hia fingers through his hair, • m e n t on Monday.

Heavens ! how he wanted her! How even her picture drew the very heart out of him I How she would brighten up this gloomy room like a burst of sunshine on a stormy day 1 But she did not want him back. She had acquiesced at once in her mother's action. She had let him go without a word 1 She would write, he had told himself, and had tried hard to believe it. Surely there would be a letter waiting for, him on hig return to town 1 But though a great heap of letters lay on the floor when he opened the door, none of •them was in her handwriting. Evidently she did not want him I It was madness to stand there gazing at her picture, He took it up as if to tear it across. Then he stopped. He could not bring himself to do it. It was sacrilege. He placed it back again on the mantelshelf, . What a tangle it all was! He turned away with a despairing shrug of the shoulders. When he had looked into her eyes he could have sworn she loved him. Even now at times he told himself that perhaps he had jumped too hastily to conclusions. She had been surprised when she had heard he had no expectations from his uncle. That was true. But it did not, therefore, follow that she had married him solely on account of those expectations. If she loved him when' she helieved him rich, her love might have survived the shock of his poverty. I'or a moment he clutched at that reflection as a gleam of hope. Then cold logic put out the gleam. In that case why had she not written or come to him? .. • With a sigh, he sat down in his big leatlior armchair and took up a newspaper. In a moment he laid it down again. He would go on to a theatre or music-hall to distract his thoughts. It was no good sitting moping in his rooms. A light footfall sounded .on the stairs below, He heard it mount.slowly and hesitatingly, like one not accustomed to the steep, narrow stairs of the Temple. The blood rushed to his head and his pulses began to beat violently. Something in his heart whispered that it was she. The footsteps stopped outside his door and someone knocked. Eagerly he strode across' the room and flung open the door. Then the light died out of his eyes and the smile faded froni his lips. "LeonoreI" he cried, in a tone of bitter diaappointinent.

THE GHOST BABIES WILL ITALY GO TO WAR ? AND Duke of the Abruzzi to G)mmaiid THE Fleet in Event of Conllict. REAL
AUSTRIA'S LAST WOKD. B y ARTHUR MEE, Editor of the " Children's Magazine.^'
Has Italy decided to join in the war ? Latest telegrams from Rome and Berlin suggest that she may have taken this momentous decision. It is stated that Austria hag said her last word in the way of concessions. • pAEis, May 7.—A telegram from Borne to the Petit Pansien says that by order of the German Embassy the German library, as well as other German institutions in Rome accessible to the public, have been closed. The Duke of the Abruzzi has been chosen to command the Italian squadron in the Adriatic in the event of war. The Duke, who is a cousin of the King, is very popular, and it is recalled that lie did not on a former occasion hesitate to fire on the Austrian torpedo-boats in Albanian waters.—Exchange. PAEIS, May 7.—The Rome correspondent of the Peiit Parisien says that the Vatican has just called upon all German and Austro-Hungarian members of religious orders and ecclesiastical students to leave Rome immediately.—Exchange. ROME, May 6.—The railway administration announces the suppression of forty passenger trains on all the great lines. The reason given for this act is the difficuity which the administration find in securing coal supplies.—Renter. ROME, May 6.--A royal decree published tonight empowers the Government to suspend the telephone and telegraph services in the event of " extraordinary " circumstances.—Exchange Special. AMSTERDAM, May 6.—The. to&alanxeiger says : " TiiG sertousnes'5 of the situation is unmistakable, and we shall do well, despite the possibility of an agreement which is not yet entirely removed, to reckon upon the arrival of serious news from Rome."—Renter. OOPEHHAGBN, May 7.—The Berhn morning papers announce that Austria has said her last word to.Italy, and no new development has taken place to brighten the outlook. It is semi^offtcially announced that any rupture will be communicated to the German public without delay. Several of the newspapers continue to insinuate that Italy has been conducting sham negotiations, as she has already bound herself to the Triple Entente Powers.—Exchange.

Government's Ban on All Spirits Less Than Three Years Old. WINE DUTIES ABANDONED.
It was officially stated last night that as the White-paper shows that much mischief, especially in the northern yards, comes from the drinking of raw, cheap spirits, the Government propose, after consultation with the representatives of the spirit trade, to substitute for their taxing proposals a complete prohibition of tlie sale of spirits under three years of age. This will he accomplished by eompulsorily bonding all spirits under three years of age, Should it be found after the inquiry, which ia to be instituted that the accommodation is not sufficient for storing supplies beyond two years, time will be given the trade to provide storage. Meanwhile all spirits up to two years will be eompulsorily bonded and a surtax of one shib ling will be placed on all spirits between two and three years of age taken out of bond. As to beers, a scale which would have the effect of encouraging the brewing of light beers was disapproved of by the Irish representatives of the trade. As the Government is pledged not to press forward any controversial proposals, it has been decided not to proceed with this scale. The beer duties, therefore, are- withdrawn without any modification. Wine duties were presented as a corollary to the increase in the spirit duties, and now that another arrangement is proposed in respect of spirits, the wine duties will not be proceeded with. -•

Dramatic protests by George Smith, the man accused of murdering three of his " wives " in their baths, were made yesterday at Bow-street. A bank clerk from Bristol was giving evidence as to the opening by Smith of an account, when the latter jumped up in the dock and shouted in excited tones: "Sir John, what has this to do with the charge of murder? This is only wasting public time and public money." Frederick '5. Eccieshali, solicitor, of Cheltenham, said that in November, 1914, Smith called upon him with the will of his wife, Alice Smith. Witness was instructed to obtain certain policies, which witness understood amounted to £500. Smith : What ia this to cto with murder? There is no common sense in it. Sir John; It ia relevant to the charge. Smith (excitedly) : It ia not. Sir ITohn : It is, and your counsel is watclnng the case on your behalf, Prisoner: There ie no sense in it; it will go on for ever like this. ' The prisoner was remanded
