MISCELLANEOUS ITEMS. A picturesque event of the year war, the trial of Earl Russell by his peers, with the ¡ Lord Chancellor as Lord High Steward at their head, for a bigamous marriage con- j tracted in "lit- United States. The divorce which his lordship had obtained in America from his first wife was found of no effect in British law, and he was sentenced to three I months' imprisonment as a first-class mis- demeanant. Mr. Andrew Carnegie an- nounced in June a gift of R2,000,000 for the I endowment of chairs in the Scottish Univer- sities and the payment of the fees of poor students there.' Dr. Winnington Ingram has succeeded the late Dr. Creighton as Bishop of London. The thousandth anni- versary of tha death of King Alfred was celebrated in September, when a statue of him was unveiled by Lord Rosebery at Win- chester, his ancient capital. The decision of the House of Lords that trades unions may be sued in the law courts to the full amount of their funds for damage caused by the action of their members created great con- .sternation among the friends of the trades union movement. Disasters on a large scale have been numerous during the year. On Sept. 19th the torpedo destroyer Cobra, while on a trial trip with new turbin« en- gines, broke in two in a gale, and 67 of her crew were drowned. The New York liner City of Rio de Janeiro sank in February at the mouth of San Francisco harbour, and 120 of those on board were drowned. The steamer Islander, carrying returning gold diggers, struck an iceberg off the Alaskan coast, and over 100 of the passengers ?nd crew were lost. Some 200 lives were lost on the British coasts through the severe storm of November, and another great gale in December caused much further havoc. Be-tween 70 and SO men lost their lives through an explosion in the Universal Col- liery, in South Wales. Damage to the amount of foomo 4,000,000 dollars was done in January by a great fire in the business portion i>f Montreal. Another great fire at Jacksonville, Florida, rendered from 10,000 to 15,000 persons homeless. A dam burst in the State of Virginia in June, by which 500 persons were drowned. K.
