Magic Lloyd -George Has More Force Than Theodore Roosevelt Your Grocer sells it. Costs no more than the ordinary kinds. > A tnoBBHRp to America from Premier Lloyd Georgo Is contained In an article entitled "An Intimate Study of England's War Chief," written by Isaac F\ Marcosson for the January lBBue of Everybody's Magazine. Mr. Marcosson writes that. In a recent Interview with Lloyd George he said: "Slnco the war means so much to us, have you no message for America?" ' ' From this point the article rends: Throughout our talk ho had sat In a low chair, sometlmoH tilting It backward as he swayed with the vehoni-oncy of his words. Suddenly he became still. Ho turned IiIb head and looked dreamily out of the window at his left, where he could see the throng of. Whitehall as It swept buck and forth along London's Great Military Way.

May 4.-Tho suicide of Private Frederick Halliday at Morrlssey internment camp, reported In tho Herald of Monday, has resulted In some feeling hero amongst tho civilian population, not so much regarding tho act of tho man who, according to tho verdict of tho coroner's Jury, was temporarily Insano when he committed | the deed which ended bis life, hut at the manner in which ho was buried by 1ho military authorities at Morrissey after Coroner Wilkes had Issued a burial permit to the officer commanding tinder which that official took charge of the body nnd had It buried. Coroner "Wilkes was notified of the death by Dr. Corsan, who had recelv- ahllity. Letters were found In his kit showing that ho lias a brother at tho front in France, fighting for his country. Ills mother lives in Sherburu, Durham, England. Ou Monday. April 23rd Halliday had been granted leave of absence and had come to Ferule. He overstayed his leave, but returned to barracks on Thursday. He was said to have been sober whon he returned, but having automatically forfeited his pay for the time he was abBent, and having been deprived of the privilege ot leave for two months, he went back to his duties as guard and had stood guard the night before committing the doed which ended his life. Ho had been of retiring disposition at all times, avoid ed a communication stating that a man j j,B association with his comrades as had committed suicide In tho barracks Mr. Wilkes went to .Monissey, and not being certain of his jurisdiction, upon tho request of Captain Mitchell, Issued to that officer a permit to bury the body, with tho understanding that, the military regulations provided for an inquiry under his authority. Chief Constable Welsby, of the provincial police, wired the attorney-genera! at. Victoria for advieo upon the matter and tho answer left no doubt that an inquest should be held by the coroner. Undertaker Thompson was sent to Morrissey to exhume tho body far as possible. Ho had called out tho guard twice during the time he was last on guard, but Lieutenant Abbott, who was officer of the day at tho time, said he could see nothing in the man's conduct that would warrant the conclusion that the man was not snne when he saw lilm on Ills beat that night. Halliday went off guard at about six o'clock in the morning and had gone to his room as usual. About half past nine o'clock in the morning, Thomas Addison, a guard, heard a report as of the discharge of a gun and upon In- and bring it to Feriiio in order that an : vesUglUing thQ call8e> he Ua(I touml Inquest according to the law could ho held. When tho body was taken up by Undertaker Thomson, it was discovered that the soldier had been placed In a wooden box, unwashed, and with no clothing excepting an undershirt and drawers. Not even a blanket had boon wrapped about the body tho body of Halliday lying on tho floor In his room with the left side of his face and tho top of his head blown off. Tho above facts were brought out at the inquest and the jury retired to consider their verdict. They soon lgreed upon a verdict of suicide dur- - ' , , II 1 'IK1 C U 11111,11 O.

That destiny lies In the enforcement of respect for International law and international rights.' "It was a pregnant and unforgettable moment. From tho throno room of a colossal conflict, England's war lord was sounding the note of a distant process of peace. "If you had probed behind this kindling utterance you would havo 1 seen with Lloyd Georgo himself that beyond the flaming battle lines and paBt tho tumult of a world at war was tho hope ot some faraway tribunal that would judgo nations and keep them, Just as Individuals are kopt, in the path of right and humanity. "But before such bloodless antidote can be applied to international dispute, to quote Lloyd George again, "This war must be fought to a finish." "These final wards, snapped like a whip-lash and emphasized with a fist-beat on the table, meant that England would see her titan task through, and If for no other reason, because tho man who drives the war gods wills it so." Once a Pacifist Tho article continues with a narration of Lloyd George's career from the beginning, that part ot it connected with the Boer war forming contrast with the present. "Before tho conflict with the Boers," says the author, "Lloyd Georgo was a militant pacifist-a sort of peacemaker with a punch When England invaded the Transvaal, Lloyd Georgo began a battle for peace that made him for tho first time a force in imperial affairs. He believed himself to be the anointed foe of the war, and he dedicated himself and all his powers to stem what seemed to bo a hopeless tide. It was a courageous thing to do, for he not only risked his reputation, but his career. Up and down the empire he pleaded. He was in some respects the brilliant Bryan of the period, but with tho difference that he was crucifying himself and not his cause upon tho cross of peace. He became the target of bitter attack: no epithet was too vilo to hurl upon him. Often he carried his life in his hands, as the epiaodo of the Birmingham riot shows. In all his storm-tossed Hfo nothing approached this in daring or danger. Lloyd George was Invited to speak in the citadel of imperialism, which was likewise the home of Joseph Chamberlain, arch-apostle of the Boer War. Save for the ataunchest Liberals, tho whole town rose in protest. For weeks the local pross seethed and raged, denouncing Lloyd George as "arch-traitor' and 'self-confessed enemy.' He was warned that he would imperil his lite if he even showed hlmsolf. He sent back this word: corporate evildoer - the consplcuruiR target ot big business in his respective country. Kuril one. Is n dictnUir in the making and it is siife to an-HUnio that. If iJoyd George lived in a republic, like Roosevelt, he would say: 'my army,' 'my navy,' and "my policies.' "Roosevelt, however, has one distinct advantage over his Hritrleli colleague in that he is a deeper student and has a wider learning. In on� God-given gift. Lloyd George surpass-not, only Roosevelt, but every other man I have ever met. It is an Inspired oratory that Is at once the. wonder and admiration of all who hear It.

"Anything like a speech waB hopeless; the main task was to Have the speaker, for outside In the streets a bloodthirsty rabble waited for its prey.

Fourteen years later Lloyd George returned to iJirmiitgham ac claimed as a savior of empire. Such have been the contrasts in this career ot careers!" Mr. Marcosson gives his analysis of tho personality of Lloyd George as follows: "Reducing the wizard Welshman to a formula, you find that he Is 50 per cent. Roosevelt in the virility and forcefulness of his character; 15 per cent. Bryan in the purely demagogic phase of his make-up, while the rest is canny Celt opportunism. It makes a dazzling and well nigh irrestlblo composite. "It is with Roosevelt that the be3t and happiest comparison can be made. Indeed, I know of no more convincing interpretation of the thing that is Lloyd George than to point this live parallell. For Lloyd George is the British Roosevelt-the Imperial Rough Rider.

He came to Chicago and became profossor of Russian history ut the University of Chicago, a post which )io relinquished later to return to Russia, In 1898 Mllukoff, then a profossor at Moscow, was snatched from his class room one day, subjected to a summary Russian trial, and oxilod to Slboria. He was guilty of llboral tendencies. He was In exilo for two years, tho result of which was his "History of Russian Culture," a justification of revolution on historic grounds. On his return to Russia, ho was rearrested and led across tho frontier into Bulgaria. A warrant of expatriation, Issued from Petrograd, oxcluded him from the Czar's domain for two Vcars. Milukoff's answer was an immediate return to Potrpgrad, where lio waB again arrested and hold In jn.ll for five months without trial. When ho was released he again came to Chicago. At the University of Chicago, Professor Mllukoff was lookod upon as i one of tho most brilliant members of tho faculty.
