SeltdelernHpation by Palestine as ,0 tlie form of government to be cast 'or the Holy Land was suggested yes-erday by Jolin H. Pinleyi Btate com-nlsaioner of education, who discussed lis tour months in Palestine as Red :;roBs commissioner. Ho had high praise for Gen, Sir Edmund /Tilonby's army of occupation, and disclosed that l.he war had left few scars on the country-the only visible evidences, in tact, being the passage of German institutions to allied control. Commissioner Finley was accompan-ked on his trip by Colonel E. St. John fWaril, Major Theodore Waters, and Major Solomon Weinslein, all of the 'Ked Hross. and the latter the head of (he Hebrew Orphan Asylum, Amster-lilam Avenue and 138th street. Speak-png of tlie'tuturo of Palestine, Commissioner Flnlay voiced his convictions Ihus; , � "1 do, not think that Palestine should be given over to any one nation, race, br creed. I,think that it should be jiold in trusteeship by the allies joint-Ijy, as in international agreement, until tsuch time a.i the country, through ag-|r!culturo or other jiieans, becomes teelf-supporting in a sense and popu-*lation grows. As the country develops the people themselves will gradually come to agree upon the form of igovernmont they wish,.-and then the Illations should withdraw and permit [the evoUitlon of this government." > the type of men in charge of the ;n.'.ii-firy as wn'I as the civil, ad:uliii.?!ra-tlor that the BriM ih w.iro fully alivo to their responsibilities. "In the first place, General Sir Edmund AHeuby, the man who later Oftpttired the whole Turkish Palestine ( Amy, is an extraordinary man-rfot ' Mly a military man, but a student � deeply interested in the historic background of the country. Imagine a com-Rnander of a great army' spending a whole night with an American visitor j pouring over the, Bible and a standard : historical work on the Holy Land, refreshing his mind-aJi to the spots of greatest interest in the region. This is what General Allenby did. . Wo, spent a memorable night' in discussion of the landmarks of ' the Bible, and I mapped out my pilgrimages which I later took, "General Allenby's assistant's, the men who are now ardministering the i varioiia districts, are picked from England's best. Most of them-are men without military-training, but they are just the kind of men I simagine Ohri.s-tendom would like it to be represented by. The Jerusalem district was then under the governorship of Col- onel Storrs, son of Dean Storrs of Rochester Cathedral, and formerly siec-retary to Earl Kitchener. He speaks Arabic and Hebrew fluently, and understands the peculiarity of the na-tivoij, and dressing as they do, seems almost one of them. The Moslems, high and low, appear to completely trust him, and the most cordial relations exist between him and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, the head of the Arab Moslenvs." Commissioner Finley said that al-I though Palestine now held only 600,-' 000, the land was sufficient to support a population of from 3,000,000 to 5,000,-i 000, He added, however, that a com-! plete^ystem of irrigation, such as was j necessary in some western states, 1 would have to be installed before the country would count, for much in an I agricultural way. He said that the Jewish colonies in the country were doing extremely well and tnat the Jews seined to be the only peoples who could win a living from the, soil. Dr, Finley emphasized the barrenness i of the land, saying that for miles only :an occasional tree would be seen. Al-j though there was now very^little real want in the couatry,-jhe British commander had requested' the " A^neHcan Red Cross, through the iBritisIx^ war office, to send out an additional force of fihysicians' and nurses, about 200 in all, for reconstruction work along' the lines of sanitation after the peace � ' formalities have been gone through, j ? UILLE m 1513. ? >-- > The Entry of Henry VIII, > > ; � : ? ? (By Ernest La-wln the London Times) When the British fifth army under Gen. Birdwood marched on Thursday morning into LlUe it was not the first time that city bad welcomed British troops. Henry t^-As received with almost eqnar enthusiasm' when he entered it,' on Sept. 12, 1513, at, this head of the great army of some 4.0,000 men, so wonderfiilly organized for i_^iim, in little more than six months, ' by the amazing, genius of Wolsey. That army was the largest that had ever left the shores of England until the South African war, and the greatest EnglLsh, not to say British, force that ever operated on the continent of Europe until August, 1914. Augmented by some 10,000 auxiliaries-dmong them Flemings! and German mercenaries-it had marched from Calais to Therouanne, then one. of the greatest fortresses in Northern Europe. The iGerman mercenaries were forced on .Henry by his ally, the Emperor Maximilian, who took a commission for himself on their pay: they proved a great source-6f trouble and. annoyance to the King and his minister, owing to their brutalities, for when alter the "Battle of Spurs" the fortress surrendered, and^j Henry, in an impulse of misplaced generosity, had handed over the town and its Inhabitants, as belonging to the House of Burgundy, to the Emperor, the Germans, snatching at the opportunity of indulging their Innate craving for savagery, "cruelly destroyed," so the official eye-witness, John Taylor, tells us, "the whole town by fire." Leaving Therouanne, Kin^ Henry, with Wolsey by his side,, marched towards Lille along the Lys to Aire, and thence to Lillers, and so to Bethune; from there to a ford across the River Surgeon, next to Cambriu, then-to [quote the words/)f the old,war cor-� respondent-"to old Vendome' (Vendin-le-Vieil) near the bridge, a place well fortified by nature with an impassable marsh divided by a narrow causeway a quarter of a mile long, with room tor one carriage only. Thence ' King Henry and his army marched to the Canal de-la-Haute-Deule, which I tliey crossed at Fount Avandien (Pont-la-Vendin), and so over six mile-s of ' equally difficult ground to' Garvin," and then through , Seclin,,to the suburbs of Lille. All these names are familiar to us, I On entering LiUe-which Taylor describes as "& place halving much the appearance of an Island in the middle of a marsh," whenc^ its name-Hen-I ry jwas received as a friend and guest I by the Emperor's daughter, the Arch-! duchess Margaret of Savoy, and .by her young nephew, the PrinCe of Castile, afterwards' the Emperor. Charles , 'V., for whom she was at thftt; time acting as Regent of the Netherlands, within the boundaries of which the i great town then lay. "The people," ! says Taylor, Who was present note-' book In hand, "crowded out of, the towp In such numbers you would have thought, none had been left behind," As 'Henry passed underMhe, gateway , of the towti and rode through, the j streets he was received with tum'ul-: tuous joy by the inhabitants, and j "with as much pomp, as ever he did lat Westminster with his crown on, and his sword and maces .|)omo : be-jfore him." I Attired, according to the chronicler Hall, in.cloCh of silver of small quadrant cuts, traversed and edged with cut cloth of gold, and the border sot full of red roues; his armour fresh and set full of jewels," he progressed, on a richly caparisoned steed, surrounded, by a brilliant staff-among whom there chanced to be the fathers of three of his future wives-and "as he passed along the streets, girls," says Taylor, "offered him crowns, sceptres, and garland.? of flowers; ind outlaws and malefactors with white staves in their hand.s besought pardon. Between the entrance-gate of the town and the palace the way was lined with burning torches, although it was a bright day, and there was scarce room for the riders to pass; and-costly .tapestries were-hung from all the., hquses." With his .hosts he spent three days; the time was oc; cupied-'With' play's; com'edies, masquete, banquets, dancing and music;. I-Ifjhry himself played' on ,the lute and sang to the. assembled court.  Meanwhile the .hulk,of,the English army' moved forward EOward Tour-nay, the siege of which Wolsey -had already provided for, by sending forward provisions, stores, and muni-tion.s^-especially big guns-and making, with his usual prevision, every preparation for a long siege. He had months before anticipated the antnmn floods and muds of Flanders by ordering betimes "the building of an im-mense number of wooden huts for the soldiers-miles of them, in fact-of which a great part had chimneys, sufficient to shelter the whole English army of 40,000 men"; covering an area three times that of Tournay itself with its 80,000 inhabitants; and destined afterwards to serve as permanent habitations for the workmen employed in the town. We get these facts from a letter of his privajte secretary, Brian Tuke, written from Wol- sey's own tent under the wall.-? of Tourhiiy, to a'friend in Italy, where it was dLscovered not long since among the Sforza archives at Milan. Wol-. sey also ordered strict Regulations for 'sanitation; his precautions against disease and sickness in' the camp were I so successful that Brian TiiUo says : that after four months in Uio field "no epidemic of any sort a.ssailed so numerous an army." Henry stayed In Lille only throR days; "remembering hiiji,se)f," as Hall puts it, "that it was time to visit ' his army, which lay at some distance : from him, strongly encamped, he takes j leave of the ladies," and proceeded ; towards Tournay, his next objective- as it doubtless now is that o( General .
