FOUR GREAT STORMS. FISHING FLEET DISASTER TOKNADO IN AMERICA. CYCLONE IN MADAGASCAB. TAHITI DEVASTATED. The week-end has brought news of great storms in America. off the coast of Norway, in Madagascar, and the Society Island?. At Meri- dian. Mississippi, a tornado, lasting two minutes, on Saturday swept the town. doing great damage. The loss of life was great. reports esti- mating this at 200. The great, storm off the roast of Norwav over- took a lanre fleet of fishing-boats, and scattered them. It is feared that great loss of life has oc- curred among the fishermen. So far it appears that eleven vessels have gone down. with a loss of thirty-three of their crews. A cyciono has swept over the village of Mahanoro. 111 Madagascar, and left only two houses ending. Thirty dead natives have been recovered from the debris. Buildings, huts. and crops have been destroyed over a zone of thirty miles. The Society Isles storm lasted two days, doing frreat damage at Tahiti, and in other islands. One telegram puts the loss of life at 10.000. DISASTER TO A FISHING FLEET. The Trondhjem correspondent, of a Christiania newspaper says: "Twelve to fourteen hundred men went out to fish on Friday off the Gjaeslingerne Islands, and it is feared that many of them have perished. The steamer (Vcarsehuniri has ar- rived with seventeen rescued fishermen, who relate that they saw several boats floating about keel upwards Several hoab stranded while coming in. but, the crew*, so far as is known. were revised. A large number of vessels are floating 011 the sea, keel upwards, and much wreckage i to be seen." In apparently favourable weather, the fleet put to sea on Friday for the fishing grounds. Hardly had operations been begun, when atorm burst with terrific fury over the fleet, daunting even the hardy Norse fishermen. The fleet at once scattered, and every boat endeavoured to make for the distant land. It was a hopeless task. Steering was out of the question in the moun- tainous seas and blinding snow-squalb. It is known that many of the boats succeeded in reaching safety at widely distant points of the coast and islands, but at least eleven are be- lieved to have gone down with their crews of thirty-three men. Official reports which have come in leave thirty-four men. most of whom have wives and families, unaccounted for. A TWO-MINUTE TORNADO. A terrible tornado swept through the town of Meridian. Mississippi, on Friday evening, last- ing only two minutes, but doing great havoc, and practically cutting a clear swath over 200 yards wide and a mile long. Everything in this area. except the strongest buildings was wrecked and driven long distances by a wind which was esti- mated to be travelling at nearly seventy miles an hour. The casualties are extremely heavy. Twenty-four bodies have been recovered of white victims, and besides these a number of negroes were killed reckoned at over 100. The !ist of injured is variously given up to 200. and includes fifty-three convicts who were hurt when the tornado struck the prison, but they are likely to recover. Many prominent buildings, includ- ing the leading hotel, some municipal offices, and the local railway stations. were badly damaged, and 400 houses are reported to have been blown down. The loss is estimated at over a million dollars. The difficulties of the situa- tion were increased by the fact- that several wrecked houses caught fire. and much neigh- bouring property was endangered, but a heavy rain which followed the tornado did much to assist the municipal authorities in subduing the outbreaks. The tornado appears to have caught the city on the south-west and travelled in a north-easterly direction. It spent its force largely in the two suburbs, where manv negroes were killed, and the whole tenement quarter was demolished. Two large wholesale stores, one smaller one. the principal hotel, the electric lighting plant, and all the smaller propertv be tween the Mobile and Ohio Depot and the busi- ness parts of the city were badly damaged. Twenty-one men were caught in a restaurant. and several of them were killed. Two storeys of the Young Men's Christian Association build- ing were wrecked, and other buildings suffered in the upper storeys. TEN THOUSAND LIVES LOST. A telegram from San Francisco says the steamer Mariposa reports that on February 7th and oth a tornado raged over the Society Islands. Damage to the value of l.OOO.OOOdol. was caused in Tahiti, and it is believed that similar damage was caused in the Tuamotu Islands. The city of Papeete, in the Societv Islands, was inundated, and seventy-five houses were destroyed, including the American Con- sulate and the French Government buildings. It is feared that great loss of life occurred. The other islands and the shipping suffered greatly. According to another telegram 10.000 person? have perished in the storm at Tahiti and ad- jacent islands, and several islands have dis- appeared. The British Consulate at Papeete was damaged to such an extent that it had'to be abandoned. The British Consul is making an appeal to his Government on behalf of 500 British subjects who are in need of instant re- lief. Many thrilling experiences are reported. The keeper of the quarantine station at Motauta Island, off Papeete Harbour, and his wife had to clmg to the tops of cocoanut trees in the midst of waves dashing 30ft. high over the island. They were eventually rescued. M.Marcadi. a French resident of Fanaron, in the Tuamotu Islands, abandoned the island after all the Government buildings and private dwellings and the Catholic church had been de- stroyed. and reached Papeete after battling with the sea for three days. CYCLONE IN MADAGASCAR. A cyclone which passed over Madagascar re- cently has left only two houses standing in the village of Mahanoro. Almost all the Europeans have been injured. Thirty dead bodies of natives have already been recovered. Buildings, huts, and crops have been destroyed over a zone of thirty miles. The town of Manabary is par- tially submerged. The three-masted Italian vessel Africa has been ca-t ashore, but the crew were saved by the heroic efforts of the popula- tion. A schooner has also disappeared. Great damage has been done in the province of Fiona- rc-atsva. The Governor has ordered the neces- sary measures to be taken for the relief of sufferers.
OUTRAGE BY RAND COOLIES. A Johannesburg despatch reports that a baud of coolies armed with sticks forcibly entered a lonely house near Modderfontein the other night. They attempted to enter a bedroom, whereupon the farmer fired a sporting rifle a.t the Chinamen, killing two of them. The affair has caused uneasiness in the district.
PRETENDED TO BE A WARDER. At Crewe. Arthur Davies. insurance agent, was remanded on a charge of attempting to obtain money by false pretences from Benjamin Mad- dock. butcher. Prisoner represented that he was a warder at Portland, and was in charge of a Crewe man named Vickers. who is undergoing penal servitude. Maddock offered to send & bottle of whisky to Vickers, but accused re- quested prosecutor to give him money.
A MURDERED MISSIONARY. At Sunday evening's service of King's Heath Gospel Mission. Birmingham. Mr. S. Williams, the leader, referred to the murder of Mr. Harry Kingham and his wife and child in China. Mr. Williams, who knew the murdered missionary in- timately in connection with religious work in the district, and was at school with him. paid a tribute to his Christian life and services. Mr. Kingham. he said. used to be prominent in all kinds of sports, and was a very good example of what some people termed a. muscular Christian. At his Tooms. in Brighton-road, years ago. could have been seen a shelf full of silver cups and medals won by him. and on the annual school sports dav the name of Kingham was reiterated to such an extent that one began to be in doubt whether anyone else had won anything at all.
BRUSSELS DIPLOMATIC TRAGEDY. The Brussels Ktoilr says that Senor Carlos Waddingfon. on being interrogated by the examining magistrate in connection vvith the charge against him of murdering Senor Bal- maceda, declared that he had been told by his mother that Senor Balmaceda had spoken rudely about herself and his sister, and that he refused to marry her. Prisoner then went to Senor Balmaceda's residence, asked him whether he would marry his sister, and. recelVIng- negative reply, shot him. He denies any pre- meditation.
TRAGEDY OF INFLUENZA. A sad tragedy, which occurred near St. Mar- garet's Bay. Dover, has been investigated by the Ka-t K< nt coroner. The body of Mrs. Dale, aged thirty-eight, wife of the lighthouse-keeper at the South Foreland, was found terribly muti- lated on the rocks 300ft. below the lighthouse. The husband stated at. the inquest, that two years ago his wife had a severe attack of influenza, and-inct. that, time had been subject to melan- cholia and delusions. Th woman left a letter for her husband wishing him good-bye. The jury returned a. Terdict of suicide while of na- wLWd mind.
EUGENE ARAM IN REAL LIFE. CONFESSION OF MURDER. The mystery of the disappearance of Mr. Thomas Reid, a Paisley teacher, who vanished while on a holiday in Germany, has been solved after many months. The solution came on Saturday. Ir. Reid was found murdered. His assa.-sin, on his own confession, played the part of Eugene Aram in real life. Like the usher in Hood's famous poem, he slew his victim for hia gold. and then hid the body "in a lonesome wood with heaps of leaves." Like Eugene Aram, too. the man seems to have been haunted night and day by his awful crime. The murderer is a printer named Arnold Sippel. of Linz. He mur- dered Ir. Reid by shooting him in the back With a revolver on the road between Collstock and Heiligenberg: then he stole his clothes and effects and dragged the body into the thick undergrowth, where he buried it under a quan- tity of leaves and brushwood. Mr. Reid. who has met such a terrible end. was a teacher in the Neilson Institution. Pais- ley. He had taken his M.A. degree, was an ac- complished linguist and musician, and in many respects was a man of high qualities. School broke up on July 16th for the summer vaca- tion. and Ir. Reid. who had planned a bicycle tour in the Rhine Valley. left Leith for Ant- werp, taking with him the good wishes of his many friends. His progress on the Continent he reported by postcards. From every house he visited he wrote a postcard home. and so a fort- night passed. Then there was a mysterious silence, which was never broken. lr. Reid early on the morning of July 30th had been noticed walking about the town of Heidelberg. That was all the information the distracted relatives could glean. The Foreign Office and the Ger- man authorities could throw no light on tho mystery. At the hotel where he had been stay- ing were his bicycle and his bag. but the man himself had vanished. Only one person could say what had become of the teacher, but not until Saturday did he speak. He was Arnold Sippel, the Linz printer, who. finding that tie could no longer conceal the burden of his sin, for as tlit, is "murder will out." told the police that he had murdered Mr. Reid, and indicated where the body would be found. Hastening to the spot. there, covered with heaps IIT, of leaves, they came upon the unfortunate teacher. Sippel had no accomplices, but- his mistress. Cenzi Micka. who lives in Heidelberg, but was not present at the time of the murder, has been arrested on a charge of receiving stolen goods.
BIBLE SOCIETY BIRTHDAY. When the 102nd birthday celebration of the British and Foreign Bible Society took place at the London Guildhall, on Saturdav. there was placed on the platform a huge birthday cako. It weighed 1021b.. each pound representing a. year of the society's existence, and was pre- sented by Mr. Martin Sutton. of Reading. It was cut by Miss Esther Wingate. the little daughter of Sir Andrew W ingate, and was dis- tributed among the members. The Lord Mayor, in welcoming the society to the City, said that body had made the Bible the cheapest book in the world. It had sold eight millions of English penny Testaments at a loss of £ 25.000. It would be seen by that that they did not make much money, but they did a good work.
CONFESSION DISCREDITED. Robert Curly, labourer, was brought up on J"t' mand at Oxford on Saturday, charged on his own confession with the wilful murder of Frank Ernest Allwood at Tackley in October, 1904. Mr. Williamson, on behalf of the prosecution, informed the Bench that it was impossible to obtain any corroboration of the prisoner's state- ment, and he was accordingly discharged.
A DECISION IN LEGACY LAW. Justice Swinfen-Eady heard a summons in the Chancery Division on Saturday in the mat- ter of the will of Maria Caroline Sawbridge- Erle-Drax, taken out by Baroness Dunsany. The will contained a name and arms" clause, under li which the Baroness had to take and use the surname of Erle-Drax. and the question she wanted decided was whether the signing of her ordinary correspondence and issuing of visiting- cards with her Christian name and titlo only was a non-compliance with the provisions of the clause which would cause a forfeiture of her benefit under the will. His Lordship held that by terms of the will the Baroness was only re- quired to use the names Erle-Drax on occasions when it was right and proper to use the full sur- name, and that it was not necessary to do so in ordinary correspondence or upon her visiting- cards.
SERGEANT-MAJOR VINDICATED. Sergeant-Major Beavan. one of the Army Service Corps officers who for a long period was placed under arrest pending the investigation of the War Stores Commission, has been released and reinstated in the important appointment of chief clerk to the Director of Supplies and Transport at Aldershot.
WHITE MAN WEDS NATIVE. For the first time in the history of Natal, a white man and a native woman have been mar- ried under Christian rites. The ceremony took place at Maritzburg. after the bridegroom, an Englishman named Holt, had obtained a licence from the local magistrate. As they left the church, an indignant European crowd vigorously hooted the couple, and pelted them with rotten eggs and other missiles. The pair immediately left for the Orange River Colony, where the bride has a farm, and as the train steamed out of the station they were again hissed by an angry mob.
BALD FROM FRIGHT. As an excuse for not sending her son to school a Dover woman said he was absolutely bald, du" to a fright he received when the house took fire. The chairman of the Bench ttlia, the lad would have a rough time at ,ciiool. and a sugges- tion was made that he might wear his cap. The summons was dismissed.
DEATH UNDER CHLOROFORM. The fatal result attending all operation for skin-grafting formed the subject of a coroner's inquiry at Halifax Royal Infirmary. A lad named Walter Rawcliffe. aged sixteen, was ad- mitted to th" infirrnarv in Januarv with a badlv crushed hand, and an operation was successfully performed. It was thought advisable by the medical staff to graft on the injured hand some skin from the chest, in order to prevent the in- jury having a permanent result ill the contrac- tion of the fingers. The lad died while under chloroform, and the jury returned a verdict of death from misadventure.
ALLEGED FRAUDS ON TnADESIEN At West London Police-court on Saturday. Cyril Walter, twenty-five. Frank Walker, thirty- four, and Laura Patter-on, twenty-four, married (their sister), living at. Sydney-street. Chelsea, were charged on remand with conspiring to ob- tain the leases of 90. Leith-mandoiis. Eigin- avenue. Iaida Vale, of 65. Shirland-road, X., and of 169. the Grove, Hammersmith, by false pretences: the male prisoners were further charged with obtaining poocU by fraud from a number of provincial tradesmen. Mr. A. Gill and Ir. Cohen prosecuted for the Treasury, and Ir. Pierron represented the female defendant. The evidence shewed that the W alker brothers used those houses as respectable addresses whence they issued orders on country tradesmen with quite amazing success, the house at the t4' Grove. Hammersmith, being found full of tea chests, bottles of wines and spirits, and other provisions. when the police arrested Cyril Walker. Further evidence was given by Archi- bald John Ballantine. of Ballantine and Sons, tea merchants, 81. Princes-street. Edinburgh, who stated that in July. 1905. he received from the address at Leith Mansions the following letter: "Mrs. Walker would be glad if Messrs. Ballantine would tend 101b. of their special blended tea. as she is unable to obtain in London a blend she likes so much." The tea was sent, and in August he received another letter to the following effect: "Mrs. Walker received the tea. It is eminently satisfactory, and she would be glad if Messrs. Ballantine would send another 101b., as she is sending a present to a friend, and does not think it can take a better form than some- of your excellent tea." The second con- signment was sent, and afterwards the bill, D, amounting to 36s. 3d., was forwarded, and was returned through the Dead Letter Office. Ho identified the box produced as belonging to their firm. Detective-sergeant Hambrook stated that in consequence of complaints received from provin- cial tradesmen he called in November. 1905. at 65. Shirland-road, X., and saw Frank Walker. Whpn told about the complaints he said. I must have necessaries for my wife and child. I intend paying for everything I have had." He then took witness indoors, and shewed him he was doing business in cheap iewellery. Prinsoners were again remanded.
James Stevens, who was sentenced to death on February 16th for the murder of his mother at Wadhurst, Sussex, has been reprieved by order of the Home Secretary.

DEATH OF GEN. SCHOFIELD. I THE LAST COMMANDER OF THII CIVIL WAR. News comes from New York of the death at St. Augustine of General Schofield, aged seventy- fiTe. He was the last military commander of the Civil War. General John M'Allister Schofield was born in Chautauqua County. New York, in 1831, and graduated at the Military Academy at West Point in 1853. After serving two years in Florida as Lieutenant of the 1st Artillery, he was from 1855 to 1860 at West Point as Assistant-Professor of Natural and Experimental Philosophy, and from 1860 to 1861 was Professor of Physics at Washington University, St. Louis. Soon after the outbreak of the Civil War. Scho- field was appointed Brigadier-General of Volun- teers. and in November. 1862, Major-General of Volunteers. commanding in Missouri and Kansas, with headquarters at St. Louis. In Feb- ruary, 1864, he took command of the Army of the Ohio. and joining the combined armies under General Sherman, bore a prominent part in all their operations to the close of the war. He was appointed Brigadier-General in the Regular Army in 1864, and Major-General in 1869. In 1868 ho was appointed Secretary of War, but resigned in 1869. and was given the com- mand of the Department of the Missouri, and in 1870 of the Division of the Pacific. From 1876 to 1881 he was Superintendent of the West Point Military Academy. In 1882 he was again given the command of the Division of the Pacific, from which he was transferred to tho Division of the Mi souri, with headquarters at Chicago: and later t ) the Division of the Atlantic, with head- quarters at Governor's Island, New York. After the death of General Sheridan, in 1388, he was placed in the command of the Army, with headquarters at Washington, until he re- tired. on the age-limit, in 1895. having pre- viously received promotion as Lieutenant- General of the Army. General Schofield. in 1897. published an autobiographical work, which he entitled, Forty-six Years in the Army."
LORD JUSTICE MOULTON AND THE "XATJOAL REVIEW." EDITOR'S UNRESERVED APOLOGY. An attack upon Lord Justice Fletcher Moul- ton in a magazine article formed the subject of a motion in the Court of Appeal on Monday to commit the editor for contempt of court, on the ground that statements in the article were de- finite misrepresentations" of the case (Grahame v. Moulton) pending before their Lordships. Public interest in the proceedings was evidenced in the crowded court. Ir. Neville, K.C.. moved their Lordships for the committal of the editor of the Rational Re- view in respect, said counsel, of gross contempt of court, inasmuch as an article published in the Review reflected upon the defendant in the action, and the matter itself was still sub judice. an ap- peal pending in that court, and coming on shortly. Mr. Rawlinson. K.C.. M.P., interposed to say something which might relieve the court from dealing with the case. Mr. Maxse. the editor of the Rcriow, stated in his affidavit that he had no idea personally of this article, which was written by a practising barrister of some stand- ing. and in whom he thought he had a right to have confidence. He now found, to his extreme regret, that the account of the judgment of Mr. Justice Joyce was inaccurate, and that the facts of the judgment were wholly misinterpreted by his contributor. Mr. Maxse wished to express his regret, and unreservedly to withdraw any imputations upon the defendant contained in the article: and was willing to pay the taxed costs of those who were obliged to come there. He never had the slightest intention of biassing or influencing the defiyon of the Court of Appeal in any way. Te object of the article, such as it was. was merely a criticiltl. certain legal matters being discussed in the article. Mr. N eville said there was no vindictive feel- ing on the part of the applicant, and his learned friend having made a sincere and straight- forward retractation, the applicant had no desire to press the matter further. The Master of the Rolls said the Court, had no other alternative than to allow the matter to stand where it now rid. A complete apology and an unqualified retractation had been made by the editor, who explained that he had no personal knowledge of the facts, and it was not in the public interest that the matter should be further discussed. His Lordship added that he could not help regretting that it was their mis- fortune to have to sit in judgment upon a ques- tion of vindication between one of their own colleagues and another person. That was an un- fortunate position, but its difficulties would not be diminished by any discussion, which would inevitably be an acrimonious one, touching upon the subject matter involved in this litigation. It would be a public mischief which ought to be avoided, to have a preliminary discussion of this aspect of the case, before the case itself came on for decision, before that very Court, for the reasons he had given, though they would have been prepared to face it. if the public interest required it.- Lord Justice Romer and Lord Justice Cozens-Hardy agreed, and the matter ended.
LIEUTENANT SCHMIDT S FATE. PARDONED BY THE CZAR. A telegram from Odessa says the military authorities have received a telegram from St. Petersburg announcing that the Czar will par- don Lieutenant Schmidt, who was on Saturday condemned to death for his part in the Sebas- topol mutiny. The condemned man's last words in court were: "I am well aware that the gallows awaits me. but I will meet death firmly. I believe my pillory will be the frontier post separating the old slavish Russia from the new free Russia. Liberty for the Russian people was the sole object of my life, and if I had to buy Russian freedom with the most terrible death, I would die smiling. Now you can con- demn me; history will acquit Lieutenant Schmidt."
SALE OF PURE WHISKY BILL. A bill, presented by lr. Archibald Williamson, and supported by Messrs. Sutherland. Cathcart Wason, Billsou. and Harwood-Banner, to amend the law relating to the sale of whisky, has been published. The object of the bill is to secure to purchasers of whisky a clear statement whether it is a whisky made in a pot still from pure malt, or of malt and corn, or is in part a spirit made in a patent still from unmalted grain, and with this object in view it is laid down that all whisky shall be labelled as "whisky" or "blend of whisky and patent still spirit." Every cask or other vessel sent out or delivered, from a distil- ler's store, or by a rectifier, and containing whisky must also be distinctly marked or labelled, and all whisky in the stock of any dealer, or re- tailor. must be kept by him in vessels marked or labelled. The penalties provided by the bill for non-com- pliance with the provisions are: The offender shall be liable, on summary conviction, if a distil- ler or rectifier, to a fine not exceeding, for the first offence, £ 50. and for any subsequent offence E100, and in any other case to a fine not exceed- ing for the first offence L20, and for any subse- quent offence £ 50. If. in the case of any vessel required to be marked or labelled under this section, any person places thereon a false mark or label, or wilfully removes, obliterates, or alters the mark or label. he shall be liable, on conviction, to a fine not ex- ceeding for the first offence E20, and for any sub- sequent, offence JE50. Similar provisions are made as to sale on draught, and holders of hotel and public-house licences are liable to penalties of £ 5 for the first offence and JB20 for any subsequent offence.

A BEGGING LETTER IMPOSTOR. Charles Brooks, alias Hartley Dale and George Waddell, has been sentenced to nine months' hard labour at We^piinster Police-court for ob- taining money by fraud from the Marchioness of Sligo, Lady Crewe, Lady Orford. of Bruton- street, Mavfair. the Hon. Mrs. Guy Paget. and others. The prisoner was said by Detective Davey to have pursued a career of fraud ever since 1891, when he was sentenced for begging letter imposition. Owing to complaints observa- tion was kept on a newsagent's shop at Chelsea, where the prisoner called for letters. Waddell was arrested there, and on him were found draft letters similar to those sent to the ladies who prosecuted. They said tl-,at he had a wife, and children reduced to want through his failure to get wllrk. Ruth statements were false. He supported his appeals, it was added, witfr forged testimonials.
