prices are only slightly above normal.
St. Petersburg, May 20-An official report has
been received to the effect that General Rpnnen-
kampff's Co-sacks fired on the Japanese columns
advancing from Feng Wang Cheng on Wednesday
and that the Japanese were compelled to retreat
for a distance of twelve miles, The Russians
have evacuated Kai Chou, 35 miles south of New
Chwang.
London, May 20-The Shanghai correspon-
dent of the Daily Telegraph says the Mukden
Branch of the Russo-Chinese Bank is reported to
have been closed. The German minister at Pe-
kin is said to lie seeking consent to post German
guards along the Shan Tung railway.
Tokio, May 21-A trustworthy report has been
received at Im)perial headquarters that the Rus-
sian cruiser Pogatir ran ashore outside of Vladi-
vostock in a heavy fog and was destroyed.
Tokio, May 20-The following ollicial statement
has just been issued here. A section of infantry
of the Liao Tung forces went in the direction of
Shan Chusan to reconnoitre and met two sections
of Russian infantry. The Russians were repulsed
in 30 minutes. Our casualties were one officer
and four men killed and one officer an I eight men
wounded. The Russian casualties were one offi-
cer and between forty and fifty men killed. The
landing of Japanese troops at Taku Shan began
yesterday.
St. Petersburg, May 20-The following despatch
from Gen. Kuropatkin to the Emperor, dated Liao
Yang, May 19, has been received here. A detach-
ment of Cossacks engaged a detachment of the
Japanese Guard on May 18, north of Feng Wang
Chang in a mountainous district. The fight be-
gan in the morning and lasted until 2.45 o'clock
in the afternoon. The Japanese were successfully
dislodged from four positions (\.-udli,'_ over 15
miles. The pursuit of the Japanse was-s topped
at Datiatsy, 13 miles north of Feng Wang Cheng.
Our casualties were six 'Cossacks wounded, two
horses killed and eight horses wounded. There
is no trace of the enemy in the valley of Tasan-
hoka as far as the road leading to the Tschang-
online Pass. 18 miles north of Feng Wang Cheng.
Tokio, May 20-The loss of life incurred by
the sinking of the cruiser Yoshino, included Capt.
Syaoki, Commander Hirowateri, three first Lieu-
tenants, five second Lieutenants, five midship-
men, a paymaster, a surgeon, three Engineer ca-
dets and eight boatswains mates. Of the crew the
number of those lost is not known. Those who
went down with the battleship Hatsuse when she
foundered, were Commander Takamoto, Com-
mander Viscount Wire, Commander Arimori, five
second Lieutenants, five sub-engineers, two sur-
geons, six midshipmen, four cadeb engineers and
ten non-commissioned officers. It is not known
in this case how many of the crew perished. Ad-
miral Togo suggests that the Hatsuse was sunk by
coming in contact with a submerged mine or by
the attack of a submarine boat. The waisbip
sank in 30 minutes. While sinking 16 Russian
torpedo boats approached but were driven off by
cruisers in the vicinity.

GREAT BRITAIN.
London, May 18-A new Imperial Federation
League has been formed, the promoters of which
were formerly identified with the Colonial Com-
mittee of the Tariff Reform League. The new
League believes however that Tariff Reform is yet
a long way off. The League will endeavour to
promote colonial federation on general lines of
polcy. One of the League's objects will be to
find a supply of eminent ex-Colonials with ripe
colonial experience to run as candidates for Brit-
ish constituencies. A German correspondent
writing to the Liverpool Mercury asserts that
German official stations for the control of emi-
giants secure for the German hmlnpl.iii Companies
preference which almost amounts to a monopoly.
The Mercury says there are plenty of opportuni-
ties throughout the British Empire for experimen-
tal retaliation which would be eminently legiti-
mate and could hardly fail to exercise a whole-
some effect.
London, May 18-In the House of Commons
yesterday the Chancellor of the Exchequer Mr.
Austin Chamberlain, defending the expenditure
for the Navy said the necessity for the mainten-
ance of a two-power Navy standard had not
changed. He trusted the country would not be
involved in another great war but if it occurred
lie hoped the House would not be unwilling to
pay what was necessary to defend its honour. The
Chancellor pointed out that Great Britain was
now building 63 warships against the same num-
ber for France and Russia. Mr. Chamberlain
said hlie entirely differed from those who thought
the result of the Russo-Japanese war would be
to wipe out one of the great navies of the world.
London, May 18-Hon. Finch Hatton is dead
of heart failure, he was one of the founders of the
Imperial Federation League and Secretary of the
Pacific Cable Company at the formation of the
line via Vancouver Island to Australia.

STRAINED RELATIONS BE-


TWEEN FRANCE AND ITALY.
Paris, May 20-A despatch to the Temps from
Rome says the Vatican authorities consider that a
complete rupture of relations with France is
near at hand, judging by the recall of both M.
Nisard and Mgr. Lorzennilli, the Papal Nuncio at
Paris.

HAMILTON, BERMUDA, TUESDAY, MAY


League held here to night, the speeches wholly
favouied Tariff Protection. The Hon. J. W.
Lougley, Attorney General of Nova Scotia, in the
course of a speech said no government could live
for any length of time that made the frank an-
nouncement that it favoured a fiscal system which
would ignore entirely the element of protecting
and fostering industries which the country pro-
duced.
The Canadian Tariff would he formed with the
object of aiding and encouraging domestic indus-
tries, the Government would fiom time to time
readjust the tariff to meet *-n.l i-,., conditions of
trade. Mr. Cockshutt, favouring the Chamherlain
preference, said it was not inconsistent in high
tariff or protection of Canadian manufacturers.
Receiprocity with the United States was a lead
issue. lie favoured a general tariff irerease.
Mr Watson Griffin favoured protection) of Can-
nadian industries. He also urged a market for
the maritime provinces in the West Indies and in
South America, whose ports, he said, were nearer
the maritime provinces than to the United States.

2 SUPPLEMENTS accompany this issue.
Convening of the New Colonial
Parliament.
Agreeably to the Proclamation of His Excellen-
cy the Governor the Colonial Parliament will
meet for the despatch of public business on Fri-
day next the 27th inst. The proceedings of the
day will be of a merely formal character. The
members elect of the Honourable House of Assem-
bly will be duly sworn in, and will then on sum-
mons of His Excellency the Governor, through the
Provost Marshal General, appear in the Council
Chamber when they will be requested to retire
and elect a Speaker to be afterwards presented to
and approved by His Excellency.
It is probable that His Excellency the Gov-
ernor will appoint Monday next as the day
on which he will again meet the Honourable
Members of the Legislative Council and the
Members of the Honourable House of Assembly,
when the Speaker elect having been presented and
approved, His Excellency will be pleased to open
the regular 1904 session of Colonial Parliament
with the Speech from the Throne. The custom-
ary ceremonial attending the opening of Colonial
Parliament (during the currency of its term) will
also probably take place on Monday next.
The War in the East.
Beyond a few details touching the Japanese
naval mishap off Port Arthur on the 15th inst.
the cable despatches of the last two days contain
little of interest regarding the struggle in the Far
East. On Friday it was thought that two
Japanese battleships aggregating close upon
28,000 tons bad perished ; but a Tokio de-
spatch published on Saturday gives the
name of the vessel rammed by the Kasagi as
the cruiser Yoshino. If this be correct the loss,
though bad enough is not so serious as was sup-
posed, the Yoshino being only a protected cruiser
of 4,180 tons with a speed of 23 knots and an
armament of four six-inch guns. Admiral
Togo was reported as being uncertain whether
the loss of the Hatsuse was due to striking
a mechanical mine or to an attack by a sub-
marine boat. All doubt is now, however, remov-
ed : it is affirmed that the battleship struck a
Russian mine and sank in 30 minutes. It should
seem that the Russians at Port Arthur, believing
themselves cut off from all hope of escape scatter-
ed mechanical mines broadcast over the whole
Gulf of Pechili using junks and launches to drop
these engines in the course of which the
Japanese |warships and transports were likely to
steer. The mines got adrift in large numbers and
were carried by the currents to the high seas
and into Chinese waters thus constituting a grave
danger to neutral shipping. If such be the case
it is not likely to add much to the prestige of
Russia or to the number of those who wish well
to her cause.
The loss to Japan of the cruiser Yoshino is
about counterbalanced by that of the Bogatyr to
Russia. This protected cruiser of 6,750 tons had
a speed of 23 knots, and carried 12 six-inch guns.
She ran on the rocks near the entrance to Vladi-
vostok and was blown up to prevent her falling
into the hands of the Japanese. Admiral Skryd-
looff has arrived at Vladivostok and will hoist his
flag on the armoured cruiser Rossia. He will
dr.ubtless try to keep his squadron outside the
sphere of Admiral Togo's influence.
It is reported from Mukden that the Japanese
advance on the Russian position at Liao Yang is
stopped for a time by the exceptionally heavy
rains which render the transport of the artillery
very difficult.
To the St. Petersburg correspondent of the
Petite Parisienne was permitted a delightful vision
on Friday last. Admitted to the Novsky ship-
yards he saw six submarine boats, two of which
were completed and aie to be forwarded at once
to Vladivostok. If only the submarines be
handled with a skill at all comparable to that
displayed in the neighbourhood of Port Arthur
news may be exp acted from Vladivostok.
lutroduttoiy Service at Chraist's
Churchi, Prtesbyterian,
AWarwick.
The Rev. Dr. Cameron entered upon his min-
istry in Christ's Church (Presbyterian) Warwick,
on Sunday morning last. Before the sermon on
Rev. 1-18, Behold I am alive for ever more,"
he said :--
I desire to begin my ministry among you
just where I left off in the home country. This
ever-living Lord and Saviour I have come to
seive. In Him all his followers are one, what-
ever the skies under which they dwell, the forms
of their worship or the colour of their skin. To
them individually He is all in all. To the Church
Catholic, He is foundation and corner stone, the
bIeginning and the end of her existence. Our be-
loved Chuich in Scotland has sent me to be His
Min,-t r among you. The call came altogether
unsought and unexpected, but I felt that as a
good soldier of Jesus Christ, willing to obey or-
ders, I could not set it aside. And now that I
am here I trust to you rallying round me and do-
ing what you can by your prayers and services to
make my ministry in Bermuda a blessing. There
is no Prtslyy at ound me to-day signalizing my
induction-o ily \our rides ase here on the plat-
form expressing your welcome and your bene-
diction. Otherwise I stand alone of my order in-
triducing myself. But I am sustained by the
thought that hundreds of brethren over the seas
are wius in spiri t this day, exten ding to me
unseen hands of prayer and brotherly fellowship,
and uniting with you in a fervent God-speed for
my ministry here in the future.
Yours is an old historic Church. For more
than two centuries I understand it has upheld
the blue banner in this Colony, being the oldest
Presbyterian Church in any British Colony.
What memories, what hallowed associations there
must be about it especially for those born and
brought up in it-memories to inspire and en-
courage you in working devotedly for its contin-


ed prosperity.
They talk much in these days of plans
for binding the Colonies more closely to the
Mother Country. There are those who be-
lieve in commercial bonds, preferential tariffs
and the like. Against these we have no-
thing to say, if only they can be wisely and
justly arranged. But we must take leave to
say we have infinitely greater faith in bonds of a
moral and spiritual kind. What we long to see is
all our colonies and dependencies sharing more
largely in the blessings of that Christianity which
is the secret of the Mothier Country'a gIeatueua


and prosperity, our whole empire knit together
in those bonds of a common loyalty and service
to King Jesus which no power on earth can sever.
If my coming among you should help in any
humble measure to the fulfilment of these great
ends, the furtherance of- this true Christian im-
perialism, I shall have re-son to bless the day on
which I landed on your shores."
At the close of the service the Session Clerk
accompanied the new minister to the lobby of the
Chui-li, l:1Ie the I_.,ple a'1' tl. tre d an

Old Devonshire Church.
In commemoration of the restoration of old
Devonshire Church, a special Memorial Service
will be held there to-day at 11 a.m. Special mu-

What was it took my cares away,
And gave me something to allay
The anxiety that came to stay
For ninety days ?
Who brought the welcome news right here
That has since then, dispelled all fear
Of losing treasure buried near,
In ninety days?
Who preached prevention's power,
And cheered me in my darkest hour,
When blight had turned my stomach sour,
Ere ninety days ?
What made barrels eighteen thousand
Of potatoes, ten years ago, and
Barrels this year, thirty-six thousand,
In forty times ninety days?
Who says that I don't recognize
The benefits I've got, and otherwise
Received ? For, he who does so, lies
For ninety days


Under my displeasure ; and so,
To prove I'm grateful, I'll just go
See what we can do, to try to
Ere ninety days
Express our heart-felt gratitude
To him, who has been handled rude
By those in power, but who's now in mood
To visit us, ere ninety days.
The Late Captain W. H. Mayor.
It is with deep regret that we record this morn-
ing the death of Captain William Henry Mayor,
which occurred at 7.45 o'clock on Sunday even-
ing last at his residence, Somerset.
On Saturday Captain Mayor feeling rather un-
well and thinking himself suffering from indiges-
tion took some medicine. On Sunday afternoon
his condition growing worse Lr. Allen was called,
in ; subsequently Dr. Packwood was also sum-
mioned. Medical skill, however, proved unavail-
ing and lie died at 7.45 as above stated. Death
was due to syncope of the heart.
In his early days Captain Mayor went to sea-
His last command was the brigantine Excelsior
On retiring from the sea he went into business at
the Bridge, Somerset.
In 1897 at a bye-election Captain Mayor was
elected M. C. P. for Somerset, and was ani unsuc-
cessful candidate for the same constituency at
the recent General Election. The funeral, which
was largely attended took place to St. James's
Churchyard, Sandys, yesterday afternoon. Cap-
tain Major was in his fifty-eighth year. He leaves
a widow, two sons, and two daughters who, in
their bereavement have the deep sympathy of
Captain Mayor's numerous friends throughout
the Co'ony.


OXFORD AND THE RHODES SCHOLARS.
The following letter from the London Times has
been forwarded to us for publication :
To the Editor of the Times.
Sir,-Perhaps some of your readers would ex-
press their views upon the following extract from
a letter which I have received from a friend in
Canada :-
"I am going to take the liberty of consulting
you on a matter respecting my son, who is now at
R-- (an English public school). His name is
"Own for Oriel College, Oxford, for October, 1905,
atowhich time he will be 17 years and nine months
ol Most boys of his school, I believe, go to
Ori and it was for that reason it was selected in
his ase. Now, I am somewhat apprehensive that
the effect of the going to Oxford of all the Rhodes
sch lars will be prejudicial to boys of his age.
e Rhodes trustees have decided that
candidates for scholarships in the United States
and Canada must be over 19 and under 25 years of
age, and must have attended, at least, two years
as under-graduates of a degree-giving University.
It seems to me that these-men will be altogether
unfair competitors for boys fresh from English
public schools and of a less mature age. In addi-
tion to this they will, by having been specially
selected men from the different localities they re-
present, be somewhat of an intellectual Rite, as
the New York Evening Post puts it. They will
be strenuous, hard-working, able men, and their
experience of two year at their respective Uni-
versities will give them a great advantage over the
ordinary undergraduate"; and it is safe to assume
that almost all of them will be ambitious to se-
cure all the prizes in sight, both those offered for
scholarship and those presented in connexion with
athletic sports and other similar attractions. Now
this competition may have several results, but it
seems to me the most likely one to ensue will be
to discourage the younger students, who will na-
turally feel that they are somewhat handicapped
by being entered against such contestants. I do
not know whether any one has considered careful-
ly the effect upon Oxford which all this influx of
scholars will have, but as I am sending my boy to
the English University in order that he may get
the best culture and influences that such a train-
ing offers, and in order-that he may have a rea-
sonable chance of securing a good place in scholar-
ship and of taking such position in connexion
with athletic sports and of participating in the
exercises as such institutions as the Union, I am
somewhat afraid that the apprehension to which I
have referred may be well founded, and that, for
all these reasons, for my purposes, and in the spe-
cial circumstances in which my boy is being sent
to an English University, it may be better that
he should go to Cambridge, where none of these
diverting or perplexing things have to be encoun-
tered.
I remain yours faithfully,

RITA "
RITA, the celebrated authoress of Souls," gives evidence in
her letter below of the great benefit to be obtained from Phosferine
when exhausted or fagged after a long spell of Brain Work. She
finds it relieves Weariness and Depression and is ex:.! ent Lr
attacks of Neuralgia. It is the only restorative she uses after a
prolonged szr:ain of brain work. We quo'e her own words from a
recent letter which we are permitted to use :--
"I have gr at pleasure in stating t' at I have derived great benefit from 1the use of
Phosferine, especially when fagged or exhaustedd after a lorg spell of brain woik. TI.e
severe strain caused by hours of mental labour is only too well known lo writers a.-:d
physicians. A break-down is no infrequent occurence. Wine, spirits, or malt stitulants
are not advisable, owing to the inevitable reaction produced by temporary excitement.
Phosferine, however, seems to stimulate the fatigued brain without prodt cing any bad
effects. It relieves that sense of wearine s and depression inseparable from prolonged mental
efforts. I have also found it excellent for attacks of neuralgia."
