A HEAVY SENTENCE.
Several readers have called our
attention to the fact that the sen-
tence passed on Edgar Hilgrove
Washington Smith in the Supreme
Court on Friday morning appeared
He was arraingedon tWO indict-
ments under the Speedy Trials Act:
one of stealing, with a'n alternative
count of receiving, a.nd the second
indictment of escaping from lawful
custody. Pleading guilty. Smith
was sentenced to '12 months with
hard labour on the first charge and
6 months on the second, the sen-
tences to run concurrently, mak-
oing 18 months in all.
Briefly, the facts of the case of
stealing were these. A St. George's
resident sent a watch to Hamilton
for repairs. Later. one of the ex-
press drivers-at the dwner's re-
qcuest-called at the shop and got
the watch. Arriving at his journey
end. he discovered the watch wias
missing, and reported the affair,
Smith was eventually found to have
had the watch and claimed that
he picked it up. Unfortunately for
himself, he threw it away, and it
has not yet been found.
This heightened his offence of
stealing, and resulted in what
seemed excessive punishment.
DELAYED BY STORM.
The cause of the unusual delay
'. of The S.S. Fort Victoria, of tlihe
FurnessBermuda, Line on Friday
last was caused by a ,very severe
storm encountered first outside
New York and continuing until
within about 80 i mile of Bermuda.

experience of Captain J. W. MIc-
Kenzie, her Conin3a.nder, th0,t t-he
delay was only that of a few hours

difficulties are such that golfers

TALES AND TRADITIONS
OF OLD BERMUDA.
A Story That Every Bermudian Should Read
(BY WINSLOW MANLY BELL.)
JOSHUA, BACCHUS AND CUDJOE.
It happened on a certain day in
the year 1765 the sloop "Tryal"
sailed from Antigua for North Ca-
rolina with twenty nine passengers
aboard, besides the crew. Of the
passengers eight were white and
twenty--oue negroes, the latter
working their way as p.rt payment
of passage money. The whites livl
in the tiny cabin, while the colour-
ed people-of whoiIi three were
women, huddled together in the
steerage by themselves. H.tppv an
careless, with no 'thought, of the
morrow, they realized they were
only changing from bondage in one
country to slavery in another.
The Captainr of the sloop, John
Scott-a sailor through and
through, had more voyages to his
credit than he could remember.
The fact there were more negroes
than whites on board gave him no
tLieasiness. He was satisfied as long
as the men worked well and be-
.haved themselves decently. Na-
thaniel Richalrdson.the mate, had
passed through a hundred gales in
the stormy Gulf of Mexico.
The voyage northward was like
sailing through a summer sea.

were off duty they fisliecd for cub

B&t a chniape came over the pla-
cid sea as the "Tryal" approached
the coast of America. The fair wea-
ther of the tropics was succeeded
by a succession of storms that se-li_
the heritage of C'apce Hatteras. The

pieces and the hull badly damaged.

knew better than he the lack of
stores at sea and he began ationce j

Island Group Out in the Atlantic
Full of' Charm and Quaintness

To paraphrase a familiar phrase

Bermuda. The horticulturist finds
a lot of interest and even those in-
differently fond of flowers must
open their eyes and almost stand
aghast at what unfolds before them
as they traverse the islafld, or ra-
ther the series of islands, for in the
entire group there are the tradi-
tional 365. The same is true of thle
person interested in geology and
the curious coral formation of Ber-
muda. In the course of one's jour-
neyings about the group the visitor
has an opportunity of entering five
different caves of which two are of
comparatively recent discovery and
1 there doubtless will be more opened
\ to view as the years roll oil. One of
these caves. known as the Crystal
SC'ave, is partly traversed by means
of bridges floated on empty boxes,
this being necessary because of the
rise and fall of the salt water inI
unison) with the flow and ebb of the
ocean not many hundred feet away.
The water in this cave is of crysta-
f line purty and the cave issupposed-
i ly fed bby subterranean passages
which have not yet been discovered.

f itinla.ta be surprised Lat the uob.ence

to rest; one hasn't the incessant

t an occasional motor boat passing
upl and down that glorious Hamil-

t small islands, the foreground late
in the afternoon set against a back-
hl ground of sun-lit gorgeousness.

investigating financial operations
of the two corporations for several
weeks. The officers of the corpora-
tion must show cause ip co)rt u"t
Jan. 17 why a pernianent injune-
tion should not be isupied.
The Hotel Common, wealth cqo-
partner ownership plan" was first
evolved in 1916 and pli as were un-
dertaken for the co ,struction of a1
large hotel at Broaduwy ard Fifty-
sixth Street. Each person who pur-
purchsed a share of the stockl, then
selling for $100 a share, automa-
tically became a member of the
"Commnnonwealth Club". with quar-
ters in the hotel building. No dues
were to be paid by these imenbers
and they were to receive special
privileges from the mnanagenie.t.
Stoch Was in Demand.
In a prospectus issued by the ho-
tel corporation, which at the time
had offices at 18 East Forty-first
Street, it was stated that the erec-
tion of the hotel was to be finarn-
ced by public subscription and
50.000 shares of stock would be plac-
ed on the market at $100 A- share.
Agents in al parts of the country
were overwhelmed with offers to
bIuy shares and the original stock
issue was rapidly exa ousted. The
proposed site. running front Broad-
way to Seventh Avenue, and from
Fifty-fifth to Fifty-Sixth Streets,
was purchased and excavation, was
begun in 1921. Since then construc-
tion has been at a standstill. al-
though it is alleged that the sale
and disposal of stock has continued.

S CONFERENCE AT WEMBLEY.
Thirty Eight Countries to Take Part
The return of eight women re-
presentatives to Parliament is an
indication that feminine emnanci-
pation is almost complete.
How has this swift advance of
women to the fore-front of coimmer-
cial and administrative life been
achieved? The full story will be un-
fo'ded day by day at the British
Empire Exhibition this year.
A Pavilion is being erected in the
grounds by theInternational Coun-
cil of Women which will be the
headquarters of the World of
Women. Millions of organised
women will be represented in the
building. From week to tveek fenli-
niine hope-, aspirations and .ideas
for the solution of sonlm of the
world's most difficult problems
will be brought to liglit there.
"We look upon the Exhibition
as a splendid opportunity of taking
stock of our progesss." said Miss
.ElsieM. Zimiinern. Secretary of the
Council. in alln interview, to-day.
"When we started in 1888, the pos-
sibility of women actually sitting
in Parliament seemed very remote.
Now eight live arrived in England.
and the progress has been still more
rapid in other countries. There is
actually a. woman in the Cabinet
in one ,of the Canadian Provinces.
"'Woien's organisartions in al-
mllost every country in the world p,re
affiliated to the Internation.al
Council. and we hope to have re-
presentatives of all of them at
"We are going to hold a Peace
Corfe-rence 'on May 5th to get at
thle causes of war and to discuss
what nmay be done to eliminate
them. Ve believe that much call
c-.n be-.done by starting with the
children-teaching then1m history
and geogralph, from the. iirterna-
tion-,1 standpoint and the princi-
ples of peace and the settlement of
disputes by arbitration. If the
children of lihe Empirejare taught
to grow -up understanding each
otihe .rid with ai true disposition
to frier. liness implanted in themni
we sh. il be on the wva, to the total
abolition of Wai'r.
"At our conferences we shall dis-
cuss the ledt-lcattlon of citizens, with
v oiew co the development of the
international mind in trade and
finance. We shall discuss traffic in
wom11en1. a'rm11s, liquor, opium. the
value of establishment of an all in-
clusive league of nations, the right
of women to full citizenship, demo-
cratic control of foreign affairs.
and the training in freedom andI
responsibility for all.
'"The International Council of
Women has National Councils of
Women in -33 different countries
affiliated to it, each of these in turn
being composed of a number of na-
tionally organised women's so-,
cieties. The National Councils of
Women of Great Britain and Ire-
land, of Canada. South Africa.
Australia and New-Zealand (are co-

LABOUR AND OFFICE.
The London Times rakes the
true attitude towards the Labor
Party in the position in which it
finds itself in Parliament. I It is
toto weak to govern without the
co-operation of either the Liberal
or the Conservative Party. It is
not to be expected that either of
these parties will be content to
lose itself in the Labor organisation.
Sooner or later, and probably
sooner, if Mr. Ranisay MacDonald
takes office, his Government will
be defeated in the House of Com-
mons. If iie demnanrls a disso-
lution. can it be wisely refused?
There is no prospect that Parlia-
ment would have greater consider-
at ion for a Governmlent under Mr.
Asquirh and his, Liberal associates.
That in ttrn would be beaten on
division and ain appeal to the peo-
ple would be demanded. Could a
dissolution be ,;ri.nted to a weaker
minority lthan t-ih.t which Mr.
R unsayy MacDo~aild (-onmniands? I
It is vital that the 'i '.. should
not ble involved in a coin- '"'ith
Laborand 'ital that the' oldrp ..-:t-'
should not eemi to profit by an.
extreme or doubtful interpreta-
tion of constitutional usage. La-
1or as a body lias been lo al to '
the Throne and obedient to the I
Constitution. One may be certain
that the King will show no dis-
trust of its leaders or consent to be
driven into any position which
would, imply want of sympathy or
good-will. Regard for the "under
dog" is inbred in the British people
and nothing would be of greater
advantage to the-Labor party in
the immediate situation in Great
Britain than a dubious cOllibiln-
ation of parties or interests to
cheat its leaders out of any right
or privilege which its leaders inav
claim in agreement with consti-
tutional and political practice.
It is easy to understand that a
Labor Government is an ominous
spectie to multijudes of the Brit-
ish people. but if the ina.iority of
the electors demand a Labor Gov-
ernment they must submit to the
ascendancy of Labor as for gener-
ations Labor submitted to the as-
cen(dancy of other classes. One
cannot think, however, that Labor
will strengthen itself by the refusal
of its ministers to accept salaries
or by any undue accentuati(n of
its dependence upon a single ele-
ment of the population. When
all m- said. the party is compara-
tively without experience in gov-
ernment and it will invite disaster
for itself and for the Empire if it
alieniat t- those of other classes
whose good-\vill it must have and
who;e support it will reqltuire. if it is

dom in home affairs andl maintain

London, Jan. 18.-Mr. C'hamber-
lain begged Labour not to dimiiii's
hastily the proposals in connection
with Imperial Conference out of
any pedantic theory, he emphasized
the enormous importance of Do-
minion trade, instancing how pre-
ference had stimulated Great Bri-
tain's trade with Australia.
Labour must remember, said
the Chancellor, the-t the pre-
ference proposals were in the na-
ture of a moral gesture And that
the direction in which that gesture
was made night affect very seri-
ously the future attitude of the
Dominions toward Great Britain.
Mr. Thomas intervened to ask
if the Conservatives.had dropped
protection. Mr. Chamniberlain re-
plied that it was obvious from the
King's speech that protection would
not be a part of the programme of
the present Government if it con-
tinued in power.
London, Jan. 18.-rn -connection
with his declaration that Labour
was not going to apologize for its
association with Internationalists.
Mr. Thomas recalled that after
the war a conference was held inl
which representatives of all the
belligerent nations took part eand
that each delegate had spoken
of the suffering and misery his
country had experienced.
From that day,, MIr. Thomnas
declared, they had resolved to
spare no effort which could give
to the world and to civilization
a connmmon organization which
would bring people together and
help) them understand each other.
The more they understand each
other, lie said. the more difficult
it would be for other people to
plunge them into war.

Mr. Churchill. defeated :-r the
recent election, is still a.v ery promi-
nent member of the Liberal pv-.rty
apid his intervention is i'.lanifestly
unwelcome to the loy%.l supporters
of Asquith while it is naturally
greeted with thle utmost satisfac-
tion. by the anti-Labourites how-
ever, the regrets of the foritler anld
the gratification of the latter are
modified by a feeling that thel
letter comes too l.te.
One speculation thdt will cer-
tainly arise from its publication
is whether Churchill is preparing
tie way to re-affiliate himself w\ith
the Conservatives whom he left
in 1905. The possibility of his
taking such a step has often been
the subject of go.sip il Interested
qu-,rters. The D-ily, Mail recalls
that when he \w.; recently alp-
proached on the subject of re-
entering Parliament Churchill wa s
qcnoted as saying that as long as the
issue was not protection vs Trade
he under no circumstances woulda
stand against a Conservative candli-
The Daily Telegraph and the
Daily Mail, both strong opponents
of Labor administration and of
Asciuirhian support of Labors as-
pirat ns, warml coi mend tihe
letter asserting that no oneol-ither-
to has presented so admirably the
gravity of thlie situation before tle
cotiftlry as does Mr. Churchill when
he says "the currents of party
\varf.,re are carrying us all into
dangerous waters." The enthrone-
mlent in office of a Socialist Gov-
ernment will be a serious national j
misfortune ,such ast* has usually
befallen great States only on the
morrow of defeat and war.
It will place both Liberal and
Labor parties in a thoroughly false,
position. The Liberal party will
be led into supporting the So-
cialists whom they have just beei
fighting in hundreds of constitu-
encies. These newspapers also
think the letter shows there is still
one man in Great Britain who has
a. genuine capacity for leadership.
The Liberal .Press comments wfirh
surprise at this irruption by a
prominent Liberal into the situ-
ation placed and ordered by his
nominal leader Asquith. Tlie Daily
Chronicle expresses regret and con-
cern adding "perh'l)ps the fairest
comment would be to say that in
h-s absorption with the tactics
of the situation' Mr. Churchill
,:eemns perhaps to have missed its
realities." .The Westminster Ga-
zette consider the letter very re-
miarkable but that "thie panic
fears of a Labour Government he
expresses will leave the Liberals,
generally mentally undisturbed.
His letter in reality is a plea for
union with the Conservative forces
and any such union would be sui-
idlal to Liberalism."
LABOUR GOVERNMENT TO
London, Jan. 18.-The inherent
objection in some quarters in
Great Britain to the very idea of, a
Labour Government. is pointedly
dea,.lt. with by Ramsay MacDonald,
oppositionn leader and prospective
Labour Premier in an article in
thle January issue of the Socialist
Review beginning with\a reference
to the decision of -the Cabinet to
continue in office until defeated
in Parliament. Mr. 3MacDonald'
vwrites-'"oqne of the very last quali-
ties I. should think of attributing
to Mr. Baldwin is the heathlen'
Chinese trickiness, but it is plain

casion to those who have suchlquali-
"A good- deal of nonsense is
talked on 1-oth sides about what
eopl:le in their hearts think of a
Labour Government. When all
allowance are made I cannot
say that to large sections we are
anything but unwelcome. Labour
is an offence to their sense of the
proprieties. We do. not belong in
their minds to the hobnail breed

rient acted the part of his class
Swhlen he 'arranged his interview
with Mr. Asqcuith at the AthflEn.e-
tiii]. It was of no practical im-
porta-hce but, at the .same time
is not the ii'nloceoi:l anlld casual
thing that !the Liberal Press is
striving to makq out.
S"The' Labour party has been
J strengthened in its suspicions
and convictions by its experiences
during the election and when
knowing it was not true the press
announced that both the leader
of the opposition and the leader
of the Liberal party had been seen
by Mr. Baldwin, the Labour party
rightly declined to accept further
assurances from quarters that have,
alreadyy proved themselves to be
untrustworthy and tricky. Of
course the fact that Mr. Baldwin
conveyed the decision of his Cabi-
niet by letter to the leader of the
opposition and by word of mouth
to the leader of the Liberal party
is of the highest significance. North

certain circle. I hope it never will

where dignity and self-respect will
be the atmosphere. Labour will

Tales and Traditions
of Old Berimudg.
Continued from page 1.
But actual trouble did not begin
until the night of the twenty-first
of February, the eve before Bermu-
da was sighted and three months
after the sloop had left Antigua.
After a growling episode of three
hours Joshua, Bacchus alnd Cud-
joe had worked themselves into
such a terrible passion they be-
came murder crazy and shouted
'the rime of revenge had come. With
these words they came iislhing
from below and ran down the deck.
The reason for this hot-headed
skurry on the war path we learn
from the records of the Bermiudian
Court. Rumors had reached the
iregroe's ears of cannibalism onr-!
board the sloop that would not be
downed. One of the n.egroe lads had
(died froin hunger o.nd they had
heard he had been eaten by tlie
white passengers and the bones
thrown overboard. There is no de-
nial of the fact in the depositions
spread before the Cotncil in the
subsequent month of May.
Though the tale is hard to be-
lieve it is doubtless true. In the
agony of humiger man is not hi?
own master and will then do un-
bElievable things. Matters might
rot have come to such a terrible
pa-s if the Captain had permitted
the starving crew to share some of
his hidden food. Too late lie dis-
covered his mistake. 'i-he negroes
were also further infuriated by the
tale of,an idle welnhel. more in.telli-
ger.t and sensible than the otheirs-
.nd therefore to be believed, that
the white people would soon kill,
ar.d eat all the coloured children.
i.. the same way.
As thlie three me"n. ran along the
deck-Bacchius with ja hatchet,
Joshua a mallet, an .: Cuiljoe a
large 1-anlmer. they turned pnto
the cabin where the Captain, was
sleeping. Bacchus seems to have
beep 'the ringleader through the
sul)seq.jtent hour of that awful
night. He began, thedeadly work by
striking the Captaii, on the head.
wounding him in two places. Then
thlie would-be murderers returned
or deck with their weapons.
Now it 'happened that a ceiraini
white sailor. Stepiher Smith by
n.anie. w-as lying asleep in his bumln
off the steerage. Heai;ing loud
voices ii the adjoining i cubi.. annd
the criet of a, wounded man, lhee
sprang from his berth and ran oil
deck. The Captain was then run-
* ningfrom him, crying out the
negro Bacchus had tried to kill him.
Smith ran after the wounded
lman to protect him froi1m his as-
sailants. As he was passing the
hatchway one of the negroes struck
S him with his weapon,. wounding
him so badly .he had to retire be-
tween decks to save his life. But
he could not stay below, the excite-
nient of the momenei.t compelling
him to creep into a (lark place,
whence he was able to witness the
horrible scenes being enacted on
Not many feet from him the Su-
percargo -of the sloop-ap. inoffen-
sive mar- by the naiiie of John Wil-

tliing for life. with ,-uperhttuman. ef-

self from' the blow; of thlie blood-
mad regroes. But t!e odds were
against him. As be was crying for
m,=rcy they beat him back to the
Staffrail so his head hung over tlhe
Hearing the cries of the unfor-
Stu.tte man the Captain paused in
his flight and ra:,i back to his as-
sis.a_'ce. As he approached(l thlie ne-
gro Bacchits flew at him a second
time, cutting off hIs thumb. Fear-
fl- for his life, ..ed percei'vin lie

fled up the srihouds.

sawv rthe deadly blow given the Su-
percargo and the dismielberiimentt
of thlie corpse. A hellish fury of
carriage seems to have tal.:ken pos--
sessionr of the murderers. Cutting
off the man's ai'.s and legs they
threw the trunk overboard, where
it sank like lead into the sea.
Suffering the agony of the danmn-
" e'd, Scott stood in thlie shrouds
watehiing the death scene below.
Not a breath of air wvas stirring. The
sloop lay idle on the wateTr like a
gliostl.y ship. The pin-points of
heaven twinliled in calm intensity.
It 'was only on the blood stained
deck that Nature was outraged by
the vileless of mani ..
But fate ordained that one of the
negroes should glance up and see
the Captain standligin tihe shrouds.
With a horrible cry to hits mates lie
pointed upward where the motion-
less figure,silhldutted against'tlhe
sky. was like aT red rag to a bull.
With a j'argofiot oaths they purstued-
him aloft, and then., as he retreat-
ed, to tlhe top of the, mast. The ne-
groes were now at a Cdisadvantage
as only one at a time could reach
him to do him i ur:ry,
Bacchtus-wlho w:a lead, strunl::
him several time on tlhe feet at lI

covered with wounds and suffering
from the loss of his thunb,. the blave
man. 'defended himself successfully
from 'his pursuers. Dizzy and al-
most blind, his heart beat ing like
wildfire, the end almost at hand, he
realized one more streilnuiis ef-
fort must be made ere he fell into
the sea. Reaching forv'.'ard he grasp-

Bacchus 'struggled to pull the
"Food! Food! There's nothing to

Leaning back with all the
strength at his command the Cap-

the hand of the frenzied negro and
dropped it into the sea.
Food! you damned villains.
There's food: in my chest in the
cabin. On deck-do you hear!"
Bacchus fell back a short distance.
The loss of the hatchet troubled,
him and he made a sign of retreat.
IAt that moment the negro wench
who had pioplhesied death came
.unli ".g toward the bowsprit.
