THE Uganda Railway has been opened as far as Njrobi, 326 miles from Kilindini. TIIK German Emperor has promoted Bear Admiral Tirpitz, Imperial Secretary of State for the Navy, to the rank of Vice Admiral. PKOFESSOII RONTGEN, of Witrzburg University (the famous discoverer of the Rontgen Bays), has been appointed to a chair at Munich University. AT a meeting of the German Society of Naval Architects, which was- attended by the Emperor, submarine boats were condelunedas useless. PRINCE HERBERT BISMARCK, About whose health various unfounded rumours have been current, went a few days ago to Silesia on a shooting excursion. CAPTAIN Prince Louis of Batteuburg, Assistant, DiereCtor of Naval Intelligence, has arrived at fly- mouth to inspect the drafting and,recruiting arrange- ments. Mil. JUSTICE O'BRIEN was one of the most able and eloquent occupants of the Irish Bench. In his early days he was a journalist, but in 1856 be was called to the Bar, and in 1872 he took silk. He stood for Parliament as a Home Ruler in 1880 without success, but two years later Earl Spencer elevated him to the Bench. Mr. Justice O'Biien, who was a widely-read man possessed a wonderful collection of rare editions, while his porcelain treasures were regarded as the most valuable in Ireland. It was he who presided at the trial of the Invincibles charged with the Phoenix- park murders. Two English peers are appearing on the stage ia America—the Earl of Yarmouth at Newhaven, Con- aeciict, under the name of Cri-Hope, and the Duke of Manchester at the Criterion Theatre, New York, in the play of Barbara Fritehie." The Duke is to receive a salary of a week. A REPORT of the statistics of the births and deaths in France for the past year shows that while the deaths in the Republic had increased by 59,054, the births had decreased by 15,174. The figures are most alarming. As we pointed out in a remarkable book written by a Frenchman some two years ago, the inaptitude of the nation for colonial expansion, and the consequent necessity of saving money, instead of making it, has made Frenchmen altogether re- luctant to support families, and the births have been steadily decreasing for years. The causes of the in erease of the death-rate lie deeper. -r'' q \¡ '¡; r <
