0 UR CABLE DESPATCHES.
SATURDAY"S CABLES.
St. Petersburg, Feb 19-The government to-day
abolished the censorship upon all news and other
telegrams coming from abroad. The lifting of the
embargo which had existed for generations upon
the free transmission of news from the Russian
Empire came as a direct result of consideration of
the subject by the Czar and in some respects this
abolition is regarded here as the most important
act since the emancipation of Serfs. The interna-
tional censorship is to be retained, but foreign de-
spatches are to be entirely free, inasmuch as a
state of war exists. Telegrams from the theatre
of hostilities will be subject to the same kind of
military censorship enforced in all countries under
similar circumstances.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 19-Russia's reply to the
U. S. note on China was handed to the U. S.
Ambassador to-day.
The official report of the Chemulpo fight gives
the losses on the Variag as one officer and 23 men
killed, two officers slightly wounded and 17 men
severely wounded. There were no losses on
board the Korietz ; the officers and crews of both
ships behaved well.
St. Petersburg, Feb. 19-The Government's
frank statement in its communication yesterday,
of Russian unpreparedness, owing to Japan's sud-
pen precipitation of hostilities, and warning the
Russian public not to expect immediate victories,
confirms the opinion which has existed here
that Russia will act upon the defensive until her
army if fully mobilised. The equipment of the
Commisariat isin working order; there are over
300,000 men in the field but this number will be
largely augmented ; about 50,000 are required to
guard the railway. The work of the Red Cross
Society is progressing ; the donations already ex-
ceed 1,000,000.
London, Feb. 20-The complete lull in war
news leaves the newspapers this morning to dis-
cuss the political aspects of the struggle in the
Far East as they are likely to effect Great Britain.
No great importance is attached to the stories
published in Pal is and elsewhere on the Continent
of alleged intrigues looking to the coalition of
Russia, France and Germany, the belief be-
ing that it is to the interest of all Powers to
take steps that the struggle be localised. At
the same time it is recognized that in all
three countries there is a very strong feeling
against Great Britain on account of her [al-
liance with Japan, and as Germany and France
joined with Russia in 1895 against Japan it would
be natural for Russia to seek similar assistance in


her present difficulties. The argument is there-
fore made that it behoves Great Britain to be pre-
pared for any and all eventualities.
The Seoul correspondent of the Daily Mail re-
ports that 1500 Cossacks are crossing the border
near Wiju, and the Cossack scouts have already
advanced into Korea as far as Anjux.
St. Petersburg, Feb 18.-A despatch from Ad-
miral Alexieff was published to-day recounting
details of the fight at Port Arthur. It enumer-
ates the Russian casualties as follows: "Our
losses were, of the squadron 5 officers wounded,
14 men killed and 69 men wounded ; of the fort-
ress and garrison, one man killed, one mrn se-
verely wounded, and five men slightly wounded.
Port Arthur, Feb. 18--The repairs to the war-


peared to produce nothing but slag. This was
thrown into the yard, and one day at noon, while
the boys were having their luncheon, they picked
up these bits of slag and threw them at each other.
One piece fell into a pail of water, and produced a
bubbling effect and a strong odor. This attracted
Mr. Willson's attention, and upon investigation
he found that the strong-smelling gas was ex-
tremely inflammable. Further investigation re-
vealed that it was pure acetylene gas.-Harper's
Weekly.

of the harbour and -ent the RtTtdi.iu a peremtory
summons to surrender; this )in- :a.ie, the officers
added, was disregarded, wlic',p',n the Japanese
threatened to enter the ilihout ind engage them
there.
As this would have endaL.'id the other ves-
sels in the harbour including the French and
other foreign warships, Captain Foudnofof the
Variag as senior officer boldly] gave orders that
both vessels steam out and meet the enemy, the
fight outside between the V'arig aind the Korietz
and the eight Japanese wvaritlip resulted accord-
ing to the officers report in;hI:--inling of two
Japanese warships ; one cruiser and one torpedo
boat destroyer, and the crippling of a third vessel.
The Russian vessels were iepeatedtly struck, but
they succeeded in re-entering the harbour where
the captains decided to blow, up their ships to
prevent them from falling inr-' the hands of the
enemy. The crews were taken off' and the two
warships were soon on fire. The Russians also
blew up a small steamer, the Sin,.a i, which was
acting as a tender to the Variag.

the Russian government authorising him to act as

iff reports that as Dalny was practically in a state
of siege and without commerce it was impractic-
able to allow Consuls or Consular Agents there
during the period of hostilities.
London, Feb. 19-In the House of Lords t'.ii
afternoon, the Duke of Devonshire made a speech
on the fiscal question. He explained his posi-
tion and the reasons for his resignation as Lord
President of the Council, and said that at first he
had not grasped the significance of Mr. Balfour's
letter to Mr. Chamberlain accepting the latter's
resignation as Secretary of State for the Colonies ;
finally when he read Mr. Balfour's Sheffield
speech he found he had altogether misconceived
Mr. Balfour's views, consequently the Duke
found it impossible, as he was a convinced Free
Trader, to remain in the Cabinet.
Continuing the Duke referred to the suggestion
to place a retaliatory duty on American iron and
said the only result would be to relieve the home
trade of temporary inconvenience, but it would
not increase the ability of the British'-manufact-
ures to meet American competition in foreign
markets. In conclusion he expressed the strong-
est satisfaction with the attitude of the govern-
m-nt :iid dwelt upon the paramount importance
of the issue compared with other questions affect-
ing the principles of the Unionist party.
Copenhagen, Feb. 19-M. Kurine until recently
Japanese Minister at St. Petersburg who is Minis-
ter of Japan to Norway and Sweden arrived here
this afternoon and continued his journey to Stock-

SCIENCE OF A LIGHT.
Cheap commercial acetylene gas was discovered
by accident. Willson, a scientific experimenter,
believed that nearly all metallic oxides could be
reduced to a metallic state by heating them to an
extremely high temperature by the voltaic are in
the presence of free carbon. Aluminum had been
successfully reduced in this way. Mr. Wilson
wished to obtain metallic calcium. He therefore
mixed a quantity of quicklime with pulverized
coke, and brought the mixture toa high tempera-
ture by the action of the voltaic arc. He expect-
ed to obtain a white metal, bat instead he ap-

The War in the East.
If any credit is to be attached to the St. Peters-
burg despatches of Saturday the action at Chemul-
po was a very brilliant affair- indeed for the Rus-
sian navy. The Japanese fleet of eight warships
was sighted by the little torpedo-boat Korietz
which immediately returned to the harbour to
carry the news of the enemy's approach. To a
per mptory and insolent message to surrender
Captain Foudnof of the Variag replied by order-
ing full steam ahead, and boldly advancing to en-
gage the whole eight of them. Captain Foudnof's
only support was the Korietz. A tremendous
fight ensued. The Variag worked her sweet
will upon those eight Japanese war-ships.
In a twinkling two of them, a cruiser and a tor-
pedo-boat, were sent to the bottom with all
hands ; and a third vessel was so crippled as to be
utterly useless. Having given his enemy such a
taste of his quality Captain Foudnof steamed
back to the hai bour, called a council of war, de-
liberated with the most perfect composure, -re-
moved the crew from his vessels, and set them on
fire. A small steamer the Sungari, tender to the
Variag, was blown up. Such is the plain Rus-
sian truth about the battle of Chemulpo.
Yesterday's despatches are mostly of the sensa-
tional order. The New York Herald's St. Peters-
Burg correspondent repulsed a Russian attack at
a place of which he unfortunately forgot to give
the latitude and longitude ; the date is also
veiled in mystery ; but the Russians lost
exactly 2,500 men. The Kieff correspon-
dent of The Standard is mobilizing the armies
of Russia in the Caucasus and' Turkestan.
lie has designs on India in certain emer-
gencies". The first encounter on land is reported
from St. Petersburg. A picket of Cossacks attack-
ed a detachment of Japanese troops on ('o.r-.an ter-
ritory last Saturday. Of course some of the Ja-
panese were captured ; and in their possession
,A ere found important maps and papers, the value
of which far exceeds all the losses Russia has as
yet sustained. Doubtless the Japanese will learn
after this not to carry maps and papers when
they go reconnoitring.
General Kuropatkin has been gazetted to the
Commander-in-Chief of the Russian army in the
East. He will be supported on the right by the
Grand Duke Alexis, and on the left by the 3rand

Side-Walk Extension in Hamilton.
Yesterday Mr. John F. Motyer began la. ing a
.d1.%'alk which when complete will run on the
n.irh,'iii side of East Broadway from the City
IHall tii the eastern boundary of the city. The
'-,iDn now being laid is in front of the ware-
house of Mr. C. V. Ingham.
'-
nluquest.
On Friday last the British steamer Trongate
anchored in Five Fathom Hole in want of medic-
al aid. It was soon ascertained that the ship had
called to land the Chief Oficer, N Sinnott, who
was very il! suffering from Erysipelas. On the
following morning he was landed and taken over
by the Asst. Receiver General on behalf of the
Board of Trade, and through the courtesy of Major
Thurston, R A M C, Health Officer E. D., he was
conveyed to the military hospital, where every
attention was given him, but unfortunately noth-
ing could be done to save him and at 10.30 p.m.
on the same day he died. On Sunday morning
an inquest was held before the Hon. J M Hay-
ward, Coroner for the Eastern District, and ad-
journed over until Monday, when the following
verdict was announced :
That the said Nicholas Sinnott, late Chief
Officer of the British Ss. Trongate, died at the
Station Hospital, St George's, Bermuda, on the
twentieth day of February, 1904, about ten min-
utes past eleven o'clock p.m. of Erysipelas and
exhaustion," as determined by the medical evi-
dence.


He was 1,uried on Sunday afternoon in the
Roman Catholic Cemetery by the Rev R 1H Nash,
Chaplain to the Foices. The funeral was well
attended by the townspeople and the seamen from
the shipping in port. The shipping firm of lt-s-is
W E Meyer & Co and J S Dar ell & James were
well i( presented. Several veiy pretty wreaths
wre placed on the coffin by friends as marks of
sympathy for his bereaved over at home.

Lectures on Bermuda.
Mrs. Ebenezer Bell who returned by last Preto-
ria from the United States, lectured .on Beautiful
Bermuda to large audiences in New York, Brook-
lyn, Staten Island, Long Island, and New Jersey,
besides giving'parlour talks.
The lectures were illustrated by coloured maps
and views of the islands, scenes showing life in
Bermuda and portraits representing the people.
Early in October Mrs. Bell was appointed to
lecture instead of Dr. Bristol who could not ac-
cept owing to his visit here at that time.

Police Court, Hamilton.
[Before the Worshipful R W. Appleby, J. P.,
Police Magistrate.]
Charles Woodgate was charged with stealing a
pair of trowsers the property of Samuel Ward.
From the evidence it appeared that the articles
were left underneath a shed and during the ab-
sence of the owner the prisoner appropriated them.
Taking into consideration his previous good char-
acter Woodgate was only ordered to pay the value
5/- and 10/- cost.
James John was summoned for assaulting Ed-
ward Henry. The two men were engaged in the
work of coaling an English steamer at the Dock-
yard and through inadvertance on the part of
Henry a basket struck the defendant. The latter
retaliated by throwing a piece of coal at the com-
plainant which hit the latter in the side. A fine
of 5/- and 10/- costs was imposed or in default 14
days' imprisonment. A cross summons brought
by John against Henry was dismissed.
Robert Lovett of the Colonade Tavern, :and' Ed-
ward Gibbons of the Bermuda House, were sum-
moned for selling intoxicating liquors on a Sun-
day, judgment will be delivered in the former
case on Wednesday and in the latter case on
Thursday.

Royal Engineers' Dance at Prospect.
A BRILLIANT SUCCESS.
Nothing succeeds like success," is a true say-
ing and it is the more so when applied to the dance
given by the 36th Company, Royal Engineers, in
the Gymnasium, Prospect, on the 12th inst.Not-
withstanding the unpropitious state of the
weather, there was a bumper attendance of both
the military and civil fraternities. The varied
shades of the ladies' dresses and the bright uniforms
of the naval and military made up a scene that is
rarely witnessed in Bermuda. The exterior of the
building was effectively illuminated with many-
coloured fairy lanterns. Over the entrance were
the words "36th Co., R.E.," and a grenade, bril-
liantly illumined to catch the eye. This was the
work of Sapper Mulvaney, R.E. The dance room
looked exceedingly pretty- draped, as it was, with
bunting and evergreens. At the platform end was
situated the ladies' refreshment bar, where the
usual good things to please the palate of the fair
sex were arrayed. The bar was in charge of
Sappers Lane and Jenkins, who are to be compli-
mented on the excellent manner in which they
attended to the wants of the ladies. At the
opposite end of the room, and under the gallery,
were the cloak rooms in charge of Boys Love and
London. A covered-in way led to the gentlemen's
bar and card-room, in charge of 2nd Cpl. Lovett
and Sappers McDanald, Corbishley, Thomas and
Wilshere, who are deserving of a meed of praise
for the excellence of their catering and for the
manner in which they attended to their irksome
task. Dancing commenced at 8 p.m. and was
kept up till 3 a.m. A portion of the band of the
3rd Royal Warwickshire :Regiment was in atten-
dance, and gave general satisfaction. Too much
cannot be said in favour of the energetic committee,
under the superintendence of C.S.M. J. H. Dale,
than whom a better man would be hard to find
for the work. On the whoie. the dance evas a
(credit both to the 36th Company and the noble
corps of Royal Engineers which 'it represents.
An unfortunate circumstance connected with
the dance is the loss of several articles of wearing
apparel, including 1 military great coat, 1 mac-
kintosh, and 1 pair of boots. This, naturally,
casts a reflection upon the Company, and the com-
mittee are anxious that the missing articles be
recovered. Any information as to their whereabouts
should be sent to dance president, C.S.M. Dale,
36th Company, R.E., Prospect Camp.

To the Editor of The Royal Gazette:
DEAR SmI,-In reply to your contributor who
writes "Things iu General," I would ask wheth-
er it is really the lovers of primitive Bermuda "
who have already let her go so far along that
road which, to every clear-sighted Bermudian,
leads to commercial stagnation, and possibly, ul-
timate bankruptcy ?
Is it due to the real '"lovers of primitive
Bermuda" that to-day the steamers Which ply to
and from the land which is one of the main
sources of support, are in thIe poorest class of pas-
senger ships that leave the harbour of New York,
and are the primary cause of the gradual falling
off, which is so evident this winter, in the class
of pleasure seekers, that Bermuda needs for her
very existence ?
Is it due to the real "lovers of Ber-
muda that the hotels are of the same class that
existed before Bermuda really needed this income
from visitors, as she does to-day-hotels in which
a bath is a luxury ?
The real '" lovers of primitive Bermuda are
the ones who, appreciating her beauties, make
every effort to preserve and enhance those attrac-
tions which are her principal "capital in trade."
If the real lovers of primitive Bermuda" had
done their part would the roads have fallen into
their present state of repair, so that visitors, used
to parkways, find little comfort in thIe drives which
are otherwise so beautiful ?
The real lovers of primitive Bermuda" should
have found some means to prevent the erection of
some of the architectural horrors which have, of
recent years been sandwiched in between the
charming bits of really picturesque Bermuda."
The real "lovers" should see to it that one could
venture upon the streets of Hamilton on a windy
day without having one's eyes, nose and throats
filled with bits of debris which would be such a


boon to some of Bermuda's soil.
By all means let the lovers of primitive Ber-
muda" do everything in their power to preserve
her beauties, but do keep her clean and give her
visitors a chance to bathe properly and be as com-
foi table while coming to and enjoying her charms
as they would be elsewhere in the civilized world
and above all do not let the ogre the electric
whistle" invade her precincts for nowhere else in
this go-ahead world is there such a thing, and the
mind which invented it for Bermuda should be
stopped from doing further damage.
A LOVER OF BERMUDA.

REAL MEANING OF THE LENTEN
SEASON.
THE REV. DR. LACEY PREACHES ON THIS TOPIC
IN THE CHURCH OF THE REDEEMER.
The Rev. Dr. T. J. Lacey, rector of the Church
of the Redeemer, was in his pulpit m-.teiiday morn-
ing after an absence of three weeks in the South.
lie visited Florida and New Orleans, returning by
way of Cincinnati, where he was the guest of the
Rev. J. H. Melish, who has been called to the
rectorship of Holy Trinity. At the morning serv-
ice Dr. Lacey preached on the value and purpose
of the Lenten season. Hle said in part :-
Lent will soon be here. It brings the old call
to prayer and fasting and self-denial. It brings
its round of services and frequent sacrament.
What are your plans ? What are you going to do
with it? How are you going to keep it ? Shall
it be the means of drawing you to God ?
i There are some to whom Lent means chiefly a
change in their bill of fare. There ate oth-rs who


welcome it with a sigh of relief as a respite from
the demands of society. But Lent is something
deeper. It is thIe call to reality in the religious
life, a period of quickening and revival, a sort of
spiritual stacktakiug, when by prayer and self-
examination and seriouss self-questioning each in-
dividual is hrouh t. f.,ce:to face with God. If there
ever was a time to resolve, that time is now. If
there ever was a time to turn from sin, that time
is now. If there was ever a time to begin a better
life and be more conscientious in duty to the
Church, that time is now.
Lent is the call to the higher life, and we all
have a vague, idea of what that means. Let us
formulate.it definitely. By a higher life is meant
a life in which spiritual things are supreme. The
Church stands first and foremost for spirituality.
It is the measure of the soul's hold on God. We
are not all equally near. None of us are as near
as we ought to be. We long for a richer experi-
ence. We are cons ious of shortcoming. We
need deeper consecration and stronger faith. We
are put to'shame by the zeal and enthusiasm of
the early Christians. Contrasted with the sacri-
fices of St. Paul our lives appear mean, paltry and
contemptible. Who is satisfied with his achieve-
ments? Who is doing the maximum ? Who is
living in the close approach to God that he ought?
Alas, too many are in the far country of sin, plea-
sure, ease, worldliness and indifference.
You remember, erbaps, the story of the son
who had gone down to the very bottom of sin.
He e as sick and forlorn and broken hearted. One
day his father came and, finding his way to the
garret, said :-" My boy, won't you come home?"
The boy broke into a sob and answered, Yes,
father, I will come home.' Lent, my brethren, is
a spiritual homecoming. God is the home of the
soul. The Lenten resolution is, I will arise and
go to my Fther.'"--N. Y. Herald, 15th Feb. /04.

Bermuda Pineapple.
We have received a fine specimen of the Madeira
pineapple from Mr. W. T. James of Paget, who
has been experimenting for some time past on the
raising of this luscious fruit.

on Thursday last, Anne Strive Rich, aged 76 years
leaving four sisters and a large circle of friends to

NOTICE
To our Patrons
In a large connection like ours it is a hard matter, even
with the exercise of the greatest care, to avoid some little
imperfections. It has come to our knowledge that on various
occasions, either through the carelessness or negligence of some
of our drivers, one or two of our customers have been disap-
pointed. Should any inconvenience of this kind occur in future,
kindly favour us by going to the nearest telephone and ringing
up No. 35. Call our attention to your requirements, and no
matter in what part of the Islands you are, or how small the |
order, we will cheerfully deliver same by special messenger. I
We would particularly request store-keepers who may run
short of our bread, to endeavour to inform us of the fact before
12 noon, and we can then easily meet their requirements by
our afternoon delivery.

Genuine Teneriffe C nion Seed.


Grown and ex-torted by


Wildpret Bros.,-Port Orotavo.--Teneriffe.--Canary Islands,

The Stock we beg to offer is all raised from very carefully selected Seed under our pers' ial
supervision, therefore we are enabled to guarantee the Seeds as being of first class quality
and germinating power. The many complaints lately received in Teneriffe, from importers
in Bermuda, doubtless arises from the fact that they have been supplied with seed obt;'inci
from farmers which is generally old and mixed. As we never buy seed in thisay w tay w an
rely on giving general satisfaction.
To secure a full supply for 1904, orders should be forwarded without delay so we request

to write tor prices aund further particulars at on
