LORD ROSEBERRY A FALLEN "IDOL Ail Scotland-Distrusts Kaiser Declare Rev. Dr. Milligan It will pay you to trade with us. Piooeer Lumber Co- 242-26 4' 4 4 I- Toronto, Oct. Rosebery's speech on the budget was a woful failure. He spoke as a landlord, not as a patriot. Lord Rosebery can make nice spee- ches, but when he is wanted to do something he is not there." Rev. Dr. Milligan, just home from the Old Country, made, the foregoing declar- ation on Saturday. "Before leaving j Scotland, I was motoring for several said the pastor of Aid St. Andrew's, "and the political feeling is most tense. The abolition of the system of unlimited landlordism and the substitution of limited land own- ing, is becoming an invincible de-. raand, just as unlimited monarchy had to give place to a limited mon- archy. The people realize that thev need and have a right to the land. On the budget controversy Dr. Mil- ligan said that it was his conviction; that Premier Asquith had convinced the people that the bill was both just and moderate." District of Emperor "Distrust of the German Emperor is said Dr. Milligan. There-- is general" said Dr. the belief exists that the German Emperor's ambition is to be .the do-, rainant factor of Europe, and the only obstacle to this is Great Bri- tain's naval supremacy. Even in canny Scotland the belief is deep- rooted that Germany is secretly pre- paring to take the first opportunity, to strike a blow at England." The six weeks in the Orkney Islands spent by Dr. Milligan, had greatly benefitted his health. He con- sulted the celebrated specialist, Dr. .Gibson, of Edinburgh, who is an LL. D. of McGill University. His diag- nosis was that Toronto's popular Presbyterian- pulpiteer was physically sound and had a long career of acti- vity in store. Dr. Milligan will cel- ebrate his 33rd anniversary at Old St. Andrew's on Oct. 24. H. M. S. DRAKE Terrible Wound Lived a Day Calgary, Oct. most interest- ing case to medical men was that, of Wada, the Japanese cook in the P.R. extra gang cars at Shaganappi, who died Wednesday night from a fractured skull. The man fell off a nand' car coming into the Calgary station yards on Monday night, and was picked up unconscious. He ral- lied in about a quarter of an hour, walked about the streets for an hour or so; and then .went back to camp with the men on the car. When he got on the car he -lapsed into a sort of stupor, but the men: thought he was only as he had been drinking heavily at the camp and had been drunk he started, although he had no drinks on the trip to town or in town. Walked to Camp. On the return to camp he was aroused and walked to his car, where he found the door locked, and awoke the cookee, who let him in. Then he stumbled into his bunk, pulled the. clothes over himself, and hropped oft into unconsciousness. The" man 'did all this with his head cracked from front to back. He had fallen from the handcar and struck his head on a .tie, fracturing his skull from a place over the eye, clear across the cran- ium to the spot in the skull where the spinal cord connects. Unconscious in Bed. The next morning Wada was 'still lying in his bunk. The men tried to awaken him, but he appeared to be still in a drunken stupor. At S o'clock the" timekeeper, J. J. Mc- Neill, tried to arouse him and failed. He thought the man was drunk -and decided to let him remain a little longer. About 10.30 he went again, and then thought there was some- thing wrong, say he told Foreman Hanson and the uncon- scious man to it was found he was fatally 'injured, his skull being smashed as above, and the small blood vessels: having bled slowly-into the lining of the skull, forming ,the blood clots which bring on paralysis and death. Twenty-four -hours the man .lived with this terrible wound on his head, dying late Tuesday night. It was decided to hold a coroner's} inquest, and Dr. Sanson, the coroner, decided an autopsy should also be held. Dr. Geo. R. Pirie performed, the autopsy, and discovered the fear- ful extent of the wounds. Coroner's Inquest. The coroner's jury sat last night inj the parlors of Graham and Bus- j combe's undertaking establishment, and after hearing the evidence of the men on the handcar at the time of the accident, as well as the evidence of men who had seen Wada' drunk be- fore he .started for town, decided that Wada cam o to his death from the result of a blow received from j falling from a handcar against a rail- j road tie, with no blame attached to i anyone. The fact that a man suffering from a cerebral hemorrhage acts exactly: like a man lyins; in a drunken stupor j is explainable for the length of time that expired between the time Wada was injured and the time he was brought in and taken to the hospi- tal.

Hatfield, of Cyrrfliiana, Ky., .the last survivor of the notorious Hatfield- MoCoy feud, of the mountain dis- trict-of Eastern Kentucky, fleeing 'from the bullets that .have begun to whiz between the factions again pass ed through Minneapolis on "his way to a far- off land, thousands of miles from the hated McCoys. Hatfield, who is old and grey, with, a long beard and makeup typical of the ci- tizcary of -'feud-infested districts of Kentucky, indulged in a. tirade ag- ainst what Jie considered exorbitant hotel rates, passenger train fares and other luxuries with which he had for the first time- in his life come "face to face. "I sold out the little grocery store in Cynthiana, left enough money with the old woman and the children to keep them, and I am going far away from British Columbia life all over he said wistfully. "The reason I am leaving my native state, never to return is, that the feud which he thought all over years ago, when most of the Hatelds and of the McCoys had been killed by each other, is that Jim McCoy has just shot to death another Hat- field, a distant relative of mine. My woman c'uld not sleep nor eat for fear that I would be next to be kill- ed, or that I would try to kill Mr-Coy. who tried to kill me, so at stity-seven years f age I am on Tjy woy to make a new home for family."

Compulsory Retreat For Hard Drinkers Scotftx Committee Reports Favorably on Proposals for Legislation The report has been issued of the departmental committee appointed by the secretary for Scotland, .to inquire into the operation jn Scotland of the la'w relating fo inebriates and their detention in reformatories and re- treats. In the course of their in- quiry the committee were in commun- ication with town, parish, and county councils, and examined 52 and they were impressed by the fact that public opinion seemed to be ripe for the adoption of formerly were held methods which by many to fin- vade unduly ;the liberty ot the sub-' ject. Two of. the 'proved results of the alcoholization of the brain deterioration of the body, and mind; and law-breaking. The aim of incK dern sanitary legislation has been to' strengthen respect for the law as well as to promote health of body and soundness of mind in a large sense. Modern scientific investigation shows that the earw -and minor 'deteriora- tions, in the brain from alcoholic rex- cess can be recovered from while [the later and more organic alcoholic changes in the cells, the fibres, the the blood-vessels of the brain, can rarely if ever be completely recovered- from. This scientific conclusion clear lly points- to legislation whereby mea- sures might be taken for arresting the evil in its early stages before those serious brain changes have tak- en place. This is the keynote of "the medical view of inebrity. The- experience of medical ,men is that there is no disease under which a human being can labor or no surgi- cal operation or accident to which1 he can be subjected that does not have the. existing acts are required if: tfce evil of inebriety is to be satisfactor- ily met. The burden of providing re- formatories, the committee declare, r should ,be .placed on the state, and they made a number of recommenda- tions for amending existing acts. lit is proposed that the term "ineb- riate" be substituted for that of "Ha- bitual and "be defined as follows: inebriate is a person who ha- bitually takes or uses any intoxicant or narcotic, and while under; the in- fluence of such, or in consequence of the effects thereof, is at times dangerous or any''other persons; or at times incapable of manag- ing himself orchis affairs; or. at. times a cause for harm: or serious annoyance ,to his familf or any other 4 person; ot f unfit to have the care o! aay child of which he'.'is the parent." It is also proposed -.that ipower bt given to a relative, ;friend, or guar- dian, or other having an inter- est, and to the to petition the sheriff rfor an; order ol guardianship, or for the committal to a retreat of an- alleged 'inebriate. "The sheriff should dispose of' the petition summarily in camera, he oth- erwise determine, he 4s satis- fied by the Mm, which need not necessarily include a medical certificate, that alleged inebriate is an inebriate within the meaning of the act., he should have power alternately: (a) to make an order placing the inebriate Bunder -guardianship for a period of one year; or (b) to commit the inebriate "to a treat for a period not'etceeding sir months, and thereafter ffor a.-further period under guardianship for It is further proposed that 'section. 23 of the Inebriates Act, 1898, should a worse chance of recovery if the sub- be amended- so as to apply also to ject' is a drunkard. They know the cases tried summarily. It-should be deteriorating effects on children of the duty ol the -Procurator fiscal in children of the sober, such children survive' excessive drinking on the part ot their mothers, such children dying in an enormously higher "ratio than the Even when they are fre- quently defective in mind and body, being of the class of moral ami phy- sical degenerates predisposed to dis- order and crime. The result of the inquiry has satis- fied the committee that the provi- sions of the Habitual Drunkards Act of 1879 and the Inebriates Act of 1898 are inadequate for the purpose of dealing effectively with habitual drunkenness. They are persuaded that there is urgent necessity for a more effectual mode of dealing with habitual drunkenness, and that" sub- stantial amendments, and additions to all cases where the offence is commit- ted under the influence ot drink or ot which drunkenness was a contributins; cause, and where there is a prima facie evidence that the offender an nebriate as well as with the and that in all cases of offences tried under indictment or summarily, where the "offender pleads guilty or is con- victed of the offence, the court should have power to deal summarily without a jury) with the question whether the offender is or is not "an inebriate as well as'with the offence, in addition to or in substitution for any other sentence to order his :de-: tention in a reformatory.
