Catholic com- mittee explained the abandonment of the San Sebastian -demonstration in a manifesto issued yesterday. After stigmatizing the government's action as arbitrary, the manifesto declares that the Catholics fear neither prose- cutions nor threats and are ready to offer .their lives in defence of the sov- ereign pontiff. It is set forth that the manifestation was given up at the solicitation of .the Catholic Junta at Guipuica, but adjures Biscayans not to forget they came from an indomit- able race which never submitted to tyranny.. FRISCO FRIEND TO ALICE LONGWORTH C. E. Union to Condemn Her Alleged Smoking San Francisco, CaL, Aug. ing to incur tie displeasure of Theo- dore Roosevelt, Jr., a massmeeting of the Golden Gate Christian Endeavor union refused to adopt a resolution condemning the alleged cigaret smok- ing of Mrs. Long-worth. At the moment these people were showing -deference to the son of the former president, Theodore Roose- velt, Jr., in his apartments, was ex- plaining his indifference to the agita- tion. "I have given no attention to these charges against my young [Roosevelt. "I know nothing about j them. There has -been a lot of trashy stuff printed about her, .but I never pay any attention to, it I do not care to discuss the matter." A resolution condemning the al- leged use-.of cigarets.by -Mrs. 'Long- worth had Jbeea introduced at the meeting- by -the Rev. W. E. Dugan.

THE PERSONALITY OF KING GEORGE A notable article on King George is appearing in the August number of "McClure's a periodical which has the.largest circulation and the most influence of any published in America. It is a comprehensive study of our new Sovereign, -written by Mr. Sydney Brooks, who has evidently ob- tained his information at first hand from those who have been privileged to know King George as Prince of Wales. We give below some of the most important passages. Great Britain, says Mr. Brooks, has AMBASSADOR WILL NOT RETURN Madrid. Aug., Canale- jas, following an interview with Mar- quis Emilio De Ojeda, the ambassador to the Vatican, who was recently re- called, today announced that the Spanish diplomat probably -would not return to Rome. A government or- gan asserts that Marquis De Ojeda before leaving the Italian capital paid a farewell visit to the Pope and was received by Cardinal Vives Y. Tuto the greatest courtesy. ALICE'S SMOKING NO ONE'S BUSINESS Spokane, Wash., Aug. erick Perry Noble takes a fall out of the Endeavorers In an edi- torial in the Spokesman-Review, claring that their criticism of Mrs Nicholas smoking Longworth, cigarettes, charged with unwarranted and that such censorship is an un- American and medieval adding: 1 Majestic Theatre WM.

The reading of the resolution was followed by a cry that It be tabled and the -Rev. Dr. Leslie E. Briggs, 'pas- tor of Bethany Congregational church, seconded the motion with a vigorous speech in which, he referred to the resolution as a public attack on a pri- vate individual. The Rev. Mr. Dugan said Christian Endeavors should be fearless in all their actions and attack anything that was wrong. To the matter it was necessary to call for a rising vote and the motion to table was carried. Defense by- Mrs. Atherton Gertrude Atherton, author, added her sympathy to that expressed for Mrs. Longworth by the letter's friends when she discussed the agitation against the reported use of cigarets by Col. Roosevelt's daughter. "I don't think smoking Is health- said the writer, "but it is mere provincialism to object to it on any other ground. As well argue that so- votee of the maligned cigarette ciety should not dance, or whisky be mentioned in fiction. What these vir- tuous dames need is to see something of the world before they attempt to run it. The country is rotten with provincialism. I sincerely hope Mrs. Longworth will continue to smoke if it does not hurt her." in George V. not only a new King, but an unknown one. There is a tale that Mr. Andrew Carnegie was chaffed by the German Emperor on his reputa- tion for not liking Kings, for dis- approving of them, for being prejudic- ed against them. "No was the reply, am not prejudiced against chem; but I always look for the man behind the Monarch." -That is what! England is doing now. There is not a more English Eng- lishman, in England-; there is not a more ardent or a more understanding Imperialist in the whole' length and breadth of the Empire. No ruler has yet sat on the British throne with so deep an appreciation of all that is in- volved in the consciousness that the Crown he wears is the symbol of unity he is at no pains to conceal, it is his nature to speak out, and one of the chief interests o? his reign wi'l be to watch the struggle between the man and the Monarch, to see whether King George achieves a caution and reticence that he never compassed as Prince of Wales. The King is a keen politician and much given to getting up on his own account the pros and cons of public questions. His companions have usually been Tories, and this, no doubt, has encouraged the believers in what I may call the "George 'the i'hird theory" of his general attitude and leaning as a sovereign. >But I am assured by, those who know him well, that the King's political views are the views of all sensible j >artly Liberal and partly Tory; and hat he is the kind of man who, if he eels a personal bias to one. side, is especially eager to do justice to the other side. His Ministers .-will find in dealing with him that he will claim manity. Prom which I learn that the Prince of Wales had still some- tiling to learn of the spirit of his countrymen. But if he relies on his own sound in- stincts, and goes straight ahead, all will be well-. MAYOR GAYNOR institution, Banana oil, applied with a soft brush to any metal surface after pol- ishing, is a good preventative of rust. Two hundred lady school teachers of Spokane are to visit British Col- umbia this summer. "If Mrs. Longworth smokes it is no- body's affair in the .world but her own even her husband's. To request? b-er to stop is to take for granted two thmgs that require to be proved. One s that smoking by women Is an evil. The other is that the example of such a woman would exert an evil influence. The 2eal of the protesters has outrun their discretion. They have done more harm by speech than they would Have done by silence. It simply is none of these people's business." Probably Dr. Noble has started something among the women's clubs! in Spokane and in this part of the northwest; but it is evident he is pre- pared to defend his position, it may be added that Dr. Noble is not a CHINESE HAVE ALL LEFT SOUTH AFRICA.

A constant, at times, perhaps, al- most a morbid, sense of duty is one of the qualities King George owes to, or that "was at any rate confirmed by, his naval training. He is one of the most conscientious men living. A friend of his who has travelled with him many thousands of miles and has thrown in daily and all but hour- ly contact -with him for months at a time, was enlarging to me on this j characteristic. "I am speaking." h said, "quite sincerely and without th least exaggeration when I say th; there is nothing, absolutely nothin that the King will not throw over board at .the call of duty." Only an overriding sense of duty, imagine could ever have induced Kin_ George to mount a platform. His speeches, as I remember them some sixteen or seventeen years ago, gav little, promise of even that very mod erate degree of proficiency which i all that English opinion expects of a Koyal Prince. They -were, in fact, rather terrible performances. But practice and perseverance conquer all things and the King today is a really capital orator, fluent, pointed and self- possessed and himself the author of the speeches he delivers. The King is a man of the simplest the most domesticated tastes, who, if ie were not King, would probably choose as the most congenial of all the right to" be frank himself, and will insist not less strongly on frankness in others. Has he that Instinct for divining the silent thoughts and wishes of the nation that King Edward showed to perfection? Has he inherited his father's royal gift for doing the right thing at the right moment in the right way? i do not know: I doubt wheth- er anybody knows, tout I remember that when King Edward after the vic- tory of Minoru in the Derby of last year, descended from the 'Royal en- closure, and Tvas on the point of walk- ing into the midst of the.wildly cheer- ing thousands to lead his horse in, the Prince of Wales laid a restraining hand on his shoulder. He seemed to fear the result of a plunge into that frenzied mob. But King Edward knew better; he disengaged himself with, a sinile, trusted the sporting instincts of his subjects, and made his way to his horse amid two yelling and mirac- ulously-formed lanes of struggling hu-i ENJOYED A BREAKFAST New York, Aug. Gaynor had the luxury of a breakfast this morning. It consisted of broth and coffee with the addition of an egg, :he first substantial food that had been allowed him since his injury. The patient seemed to relish the nour- ishment and to Secretary Adamson, who visited iim shortly before nine o'clock, with Drs. Arlitz and Stewart, he reiterated his statement of yester- day that' he was feeling fine. Secre- tary Adamson said that the mayor's temperature was lower than yester- day; "I -think it is the lowest he added. The mayor wanted his secre- tary to go o-Eer'to the city hall and look after the affairs of the office. "There must be some -work to do the mayor said. Dr. Stewart left the hospital after the nine o'clock bulletin was issued. EARL OF EGMONT-DEAD London, Aug. Arthur Perclval, eighth Earl of Edmont, died today. He was iborn .in Before succeeding to the title of the Earl of Egmont he was in -such financial straights that for several years he earned his living as a member of the London fire brigade. He was. the caretaker of Chelsea town hall, when the death of a distant cousin gave tiim the Earldom. In 1881 he married Kate, the daughter of Warwick How- ell of South Carolina. Gus Weinburg, in "The Burgomaster" Ma- jestic, Tues. and Wed., Aug. 16 and 17 lives that an English country gentle- man, with an estate large enough to demand good business management, with plenty of fishing and shooting, with-a seat on the local magistrates' bench and In the county council, and with endless opportunities for littl acts of practical benevolence. "There Is simply not an ounce o wickedness in remarked to me one "who has observed the new Sov ereign at close range. The ordinary amusements and dis tractions of a' 'man about town" find him indifferent. Cards and gamblin bore him. The pleasures of the table 'which King Edward enjoyed with un- affected gusto, are for the most part closed to him by a poor digestion. For the same reason he hardly touches wine. Of late years he has taken to attending race meetings, but he has never entered a horse of his own for j any event, and if the Royal colors are seen on the turf during his reign, it will be more to keep up the traditions of his house than from any natura fondness for the sport. ..Yet the King Is a good out-of-doors man, with a varied list of interests and accomplishments. He is one o the six best shots in the kingdom, and a first-class and enthusiastic angler Like most sailors ashore, he has de- veloped a taste for farming, which he diligently cultivates. He fs known already as a breeder of Red Poll cat- tle, and Berkshire pigs, and as a care- ful and attentive manager of his Nor- folk estate. He is a fair hand at bil- liards, plays golf a little, has played but has never: to my knowledge, followed the hounds, and in his younger days was a promising iboxer. He is a straightforward, downright type of man, rather naive and imma- ture, bluff and voluble of speech, with a boisterously British and literal sense of humor, and with an elemental em-1 otionalism that, unlike most English-' VACUUM HOUSECLEANING Phone 1115 or call at 1208 Courtland Street The Lethbrid Burdett Street, between Dufferin and Redpath G.
