In a London cable to toe New York American W.T. Stead says: I am not a courtier, and am so far from being a persona grata with the new King the last. time that he ex- pressed an opinion about me and my activities it was with the bluntness of the sailor man, and with expletives which are more familiar on the quarter deck than in the palaces of kings. I have, therefore, no personal reason to defend the King against those who speak ill of him, but in the interests of truth and of justice it is necessary to characterize as they deserve the abominable libels which are being fre- quently repeated from mouth to mouth by the King's own subjects. It is pre ignorance, no doubt, which may or may not have had some origin in fact in the remote past the story now current that the new King is a confirmed drunkard is neither more nor less than an infernal lie: So far from the King being a drunk- ard, he is nearer a teetotaler than any King who has ascended the English throne. For years past know on first-hand authority, from those who lived in his house, dined at his table and traveled with him at home and abroad, he has been one of the most abstemious of men. "My he would say, "and all the men of the older generation could for it. As for me, I simply cannot. If I were to take a glass of champagne, it would simply bowl me over, hence I have to stick to my ginger be- cause I like it, but because it is the only thing that likes me. The simple truth of the matter is that the King's digestion is very bad A very little thing .upsets it, and when he suffers from indigestion his lips be come livid, his nose reddens and his hands grow cold. These symptoms which are very familiar in certain forms of indigestion, have led unthink ing persons to imagine that the King was suffering from intoxication, when in reality he liau never touched either BLAME THE FATHER Moose Jaw, June A coroners' ury sitting at Brownlee last night returned a verdict to the effect that Russell Lloyd Smith was strangled Sunday evening by his father, Moses Smith.

KING RAIDED MELON PATCH Co. Story Told of George's Visit as Prince to Bermuda. As a naval officer the new king visited many of the smaller colonial possessions of Great Britain. He was well known on the North American and West Indies stations, the islands of which he visited as a midshipman with his brother, the D.uke of Clarence and later, when he was in command of the gunboat Thrush. One story in connection with his midshipman days is often told of him in Bermuda, He and his brother row- ed to a small island in St, George's har- bor one afternoon and were in the act of raiding a melon patch when driven away by a big negro farmer, who hus- tled them into their boat -without much ceremony. When the farmer'discover- ed that the youthful raiders were mem bera of the royal family, he was much frightened, and came to his employer great distress, but he was assured that he was within the law, and that the princes would be glad to keep ths affair quiet. And in fact they did. While Prince George was in Ber. as commander of the Thrush the second battalion of the Grenadier Guards was sent into exile there for having mutinied in London. The pres- ence of household troops and 'the traordinary event, and, as a conse- quence, many Americans wealth flocked to the island. The result was a good time for the prince, and the engagement of several American girls to officers of the regiment.
