CopxrfKlit. 1910, by the New York Herald Company. LONDON, July 16. The record of so ciety doings in London is a record of hospitalities dispensed by Americans, as i9 Indeed always the case in July. This is especially true this year, for although English society leaders cannot, owing to court mourning, entertain very largely, they do not draw the line at being present at large functions. The round of recent gayeties included Mr. and Mrs. Edward Balfour's ball for their own daughters, when Lady Cora Stafford also gave a dinner for it. The various guests included Lady Leicester and her daughter, Mrs. Holdsworth and her daughter, Miss Enid Assheton-Smith, the Duchess of Portland with Lady Vera Bentinck, Lady Derby and her daughter, Lady Northbrook, Mrs. Van Raalte with her girl; Mrs. Harry Lawson, chaperoning two nieces, while Lady Gweneth Pon-ponby, Lady Joan Byng, Miss Helen Gon-dy, Mr. and Mrs. Bertie Grosvenor, Lord and Lady Knaresborough, Reggie Fel-lowes, Mr. and Mrs. Eddy Wyndham, Myles Ponsonby, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Coke, Lady Freda Renshaw and Lady Bertha Boscawen came on with Lady C'ora Stafford's party.

HAS PASSWORD TO TOWER OF L King George Gives Lord Mayor Formula to Gain Admission to Famous Treasure House Special CaWe to The Inquirer. Copyright. 1910, by the New York Herald Company. LONDON, July 16. One of those events of ancient origin, of which even Londoners know little, has just taken Tlace. The Lord Mayor of London has received the first password to the Tower issued in the new reign. It bears tne Jvine'a sign-manual, "George, R. I.," and it enables the Lord Mayor at any time of the day or night, even though the guard is set, to pass through the gates to see the constable, or tor any other pumic dutv. Every three months a new pass word is sent to the Mansion House, al though there is no record, in recent times at least, of the Lord Mayor having availed himself of these privileges. Another new note at the Tower is th3 use of King George's name in the stately and ancient ceremony of locking up the lortress. On the stroke of eleven the head warder appears before the guard house and loudly calls "Escort, keys!' The sergeant of the guard, with five or six men, then turn out and follow the warder to the outer gate, each sentry challenging as they pass the post, "Who coes there?" "Keys!" After the locking of the gates the procession returns, the challenging process being repeated. Arriving again at the guardhouse the sentry gives a loud stamp with his fcot. "Who goes there?" "Keys!" "Whose keys?" "King George'B kevB." "Advance. Line George's kevs. and all's well.' "God bless King George," exclaims the head warder. "Amen!" the guard responds. Then the guard presents arms, the officer on duty kisses the hilt of his sword and the warder marches across to the lieutenant's lodging' to deposit the keys. After this ceremony no one may stir without giving the countersign, and ingress and egress are prohibited to all save the privileged possessors of the password. 15.000 Miners Out In Spain BILBAO, Ppatn, Joly 16.

Nelly Martyl Makes a Hit in Opera at Cevent Garden American Vaudeville Actors Take Special Cable to The Inquirer. Oouyrtrtt. 1910. by the New York Herald Company. LONDON, July 16. Mile. Nelly Mar tyl, who has been appearing at Covent Garden this season in "Lakine, has made a favorable impression. In fact, she bids fair to become as popular here as she is at the Opera Comique, Paris. There she is well known ftor her personal beauty and talent. The above pic ture shows her in the role of Rozfen in Le Roid y's." Two Bobs M&lce Hit Two unknown and unheralded Ameri can vaudeville actors have come to London and very much to the surprise of a lot of people suddenly and unexpected-lv became famous. Thev are called "The Two Bobs." One is -Bob Adams and the other Bob Alden. Their specialty is the singing of negro and other comic sones and playing on a piano. They are both natural comedians and musicians, and give their act with a neat ness and vivacity that is in refreshing contrast to the turgid methods of English music hall performers. They came to England on "spec," without a contract or acquaintance. The West End music halls turned them down flat. Then Mr. Wilson, of the Tivoli, agreed to give them a week's trial. They were an instant success, lhe audience went wild over them and went away talking of nothing but the "Two Bobs." The next day Mr. Wilson signed them on for three months. Mr. Adam3 has written many popular songs, including "Sammy" and "Mother, Pin a Rose on Me," while Mr. Alden has the unctious humor and genial personality of the late Peter Dailey. Near Lady de Bathe s place at Jvent-ford is, or was, a Methodist chapel. This, says the Pelican, Lady de Bathe has bought and fitted up as a village club. Lady de Bathe is perhaps better known as Mrs. Langtry. Mr. Kerr Cheerfnl Frederick Kerr, just returned from America, describes it as "the happy hunting ground for authors and actors." He also asserts that in America you can hardly keep people out of the theatres. A number of American managers who produced failures and lost money last season will be glad to know this. According to the Express, some emi-saries have just been despatched to South Carolina by Captain Lambert to pick twelve of the best "coon" singers they can find who will be presented in a "brack and white" entertainment at a West End theatre in the near future. Captain Lambert divides hia time be tween aviation and theatrical produc tions. Miss Fannie Ward, who ia going to Marienbad when her season ends at the Palace, says she may return to London in the autumn and if she can secure a suitable theatre may produce one of several new plays she has in hand. Mr. Weedon Grossmith will take his entire English company with him when he goes to America next September under the Shubert's management. He will open ms season in Montreal in "Mr Preedy and the Countess." Jeer at Harry Lander Harry Lauder is havine some unnleas- ant experiences in his native land.

WAGERS GET ENGLISH PLAYS London Particularly Rich in Comic Opera Which Will Be Brought Over SDeclal Cable to The Inoalrer. CooTrlrht. 1910. bv the New Tork Herald Company. LONDON. Julv 16. Two London the atrical successes have already been secured by William A Brady for produc tion in America next season. They are The Balkan Princes." a comic opera, and "The Naked Truth." a farce comedy. These he bought without seeing. Now he is here in person and is full of business and energy. He plans to stay only a short time, but expects to be very busy and et a number of wheels turnine pret ty rapidly. lie came over aboard the liusitania, accompanied by Mrs. Brady, known on : the stage as Miss Grace George, and who had just closed her season in Winnipeg, jumping from that city directly to London, with only one day's stop in New York. They reached Paddington station at midnight, and, loading their nine trunks onto a 'bus, started seeking hotel accommodations. They drove to six hotels, only to find that at each one there was not a vacant room of any kind to be had. rinally at one of the less popu lar hotels an unoccupied room was found. which sheltered Mrs. Brady and the woman who was traveling with her for the night, while Mr. Brady spent the rest of the time until things opened up in the morning walking the streets. His busy time had a busy beginning. Plana London Office The first thins he intends to do is to open an office here and employ an agent who will be on the spot to see all the new plays and secure the American rights to them if they are desirable. Of course the fehuberts are associated with Mr. Brady in this undertaking and the agent will represent that powerful and growing organization. 'Now that Mr. Frohman and Mr. Klaw have gone back to America," said Mr. Brady, "I have a clear field to myself, and 1 m . going to work it for all 1 m worth. Mr. Frohman will no longer have a monopoly of the English market. We are going into it and will make a fight for every good playthat comes out. You can rest assured that we will cet our share, too. We will also have an agent in Paris to look after the French produc tions. Uerlin and Vienna are already covered, as the Shuberts have agents there on the lookout." Another American here is Fred C. Whitney, who has come over to see about producing " lhe Chocolate boldier in London. It was so successful in America that he is sure it will be here. "In a theatrical sense London is the art centre of the world," said Mr. Whitney. "I coiwrifler The Chocolate Soldier' one of the most artistic comic operas ever written, and that's why I'm going to give it here. I'm going to do it myself, too, and not farm it out to some English manager. I'm fond of London, and I like the, English people, and moreover, I do not believe that because I am an Ameri can the English public are going to boycott me. I don't take any stock at all in that boev about there being an English prejudice against American enterprises. Anyway, right in me you see another American invasion, Will Have Enarllah Company "Will vou bring over an American com pany to play it? I asked. "No, I shall do it with an entire English company; naturally the English people appreciate English actors better than tnev ao ioreigners, on account oi me accent, if for no other reason." "13 that why most all American plays have failed in London?" t "No: it's because the American plays riven here have been bad plays, that is 5ad 'ays for London. - They have not been international plays, and too local in their nature, x m in no nurry aDout the production. It can wait until the right time cornea and 1 find a suitable theatre, but 1 snail certainly make it." Still another American invasion will be made bv I. S. Sire. His representative. Edmund Gerson, has leased Perry's Theatre, where Mr. Sire will present Miss May Robeson for a season beginning August. 2. It was in this little theatre that an American play with an American company, "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch, began a successful London engagement. - AN AMERICAN FIRST NIGHTER. MS SWINDLER SECURES $22,000 NECKLACE Tells Jeweler He Wants to Show It to Wealthy American Woman Then Disappears In House While Employe Remains Outside in an Auto Special Cabla to The Inquirer, Copyrlrht, 1$10, b th New Tork Herald Company. PARIS, July 16 Pretending that he was acquainted with a wealthy American woman who was a likely purchaser of valuable jewelry, an unidentified man of about sixty years of age has succeeded in robbing a jeweler in the Faubourg Saint-Honore of a necklace worth 110,-OOOf. The man, wno is tall and clean shaven and was wearing a blue suit and an eyeglass, called at the jeweler's a few days ago and left several articles of jewelry to be repaired. In conversation with the jeweler he casually remarked that he knew an American woman who was a likely customer. Yesterday morning he returned to the jeweler's shop, and mentioned that he had been commissioned by the American woman to show her some jewels. "If you can spare an employe," he added, "let him come with me in my automobile and bring a pearl necklace with him. It will only take him a few minutes." The jeweler readily consented, and sent an employe with a pearl necklace worth 110,000 francs, telling him to accompany the gentleman. The auto was driven to a house in the Boulevard d3 Courcelles, where the thief aeked the jeweler's employe to give him the necklace to show to the supposed customer, and to await him in the automobile. The employe waited several minutes, and then, becoming suspicious, he asked the concierge if an American woman lived in the house. He received a nega tive reply, and then discovered that the man and the pearl necidace bad disappeared by another entrance to the house in the Rue de Charelles. The police were informed, but so far are without a clue as to the thief's identity. - , AMERICANS IN BERLIN Hotels In German Capital Well Filled With People From States Special Cable to The Inquirer.

CHINESE SCHOOLS TO USE ENGLISH In All Institutions of Modern Learning It Is Official Language Recent Imperial Decree Authorizing Its Adoption. Far-Reaching in Influence Special Correspondence of The Inquirer, Copyright. 1910, by The Philadelphia Inquirer Co. PEKIX, July 16. By giving imperial sanction to the adoption of English as official langauge for all schools of mod ern learning established, or to be here after established, in this Empire, the 1'nnce Kegent has not only definitely shaped .the1 course of present and future education for the myriads of people un der the protection of the Drasron Throne, but has stilled for all time the problem of what shall be the d ominant language of the world. Far-reaching as is this decree in it bearing upon the education of nresent and, especially, future generations of the Lhmese people, it possesses n vpn larger significance from the fact that it gives the stamp of approval of China with her population comprising one-fourth the human race, to English as the world language. More than any other ruler of a race of another language more combined than all such monarchs combined has the Prince of Chun contributed to the eventual supremacy of English. If the immediate results of his action are of vast importance to China, as, judged from any standpoint they unquestionably are, the secondary, but no less certain, results are of as great importance to the world at large. To those who see in the Throne's decree nothing more than its bearing upon the existing schools directly concerned, there may seem something fantastic in this idea of its larger influence. On its face, the decree does nothing more than declare that English shall be the standard lanKuasre for technical and scientific education throughout the Empire, its direct application being to colleges and high schools supported by the Central and Provincial Governments. Single Medlnm rrriaary The necessity of a standard single medium through which these branches of modern learning should be taught has long been recognized bv those interested in education, and if this decree had no other effect it would be of immense Vt i? Provicin 6uch medium, rather than that the whole purpose of modern teaching should be rendered null bv continuance of Tower of Babel conditions that have prevailed. The memorial franklv recognize the impossibility of adequatelv translating into Chinese the scientific and technical terms so essential to an understanding of modern sciences. It points out some of the ineonirruities of the present system, or lack of system, under which directors ot different institutions have designated different foreign languages in their requirements for students, citing, bv wav of illustration, instances of the use o'f one language in the high schools given over to the study of some one science agriculture is especially mentioned while in the college for which the students of these schools are preparing themselves a different foreign language is required. Full Sweep for Engliih "In tb is manner the schools will have some principle to guide them, and when students are promoted to the higher institutions, there will be no confusion arising from a mult city of foreign languages. In all provincial high schools (scientific and technical) already existing or eeiaousnea in tne iuture, the 6tudies (with the exception of ethics Chinese literature, history and geography) pertaining to science shall be taught in English. When the students are sent to Pekin for final examination after eradu- ation, they shall be examined through the medium of the English language." J.ne primary enect oi tne Imperial decree sanctioning these recommendations is to definitely commit China to English as the language through which modern learning the coal of "ioune China's am bition shall be reached. The secondary, out no less certain, enect is to place the seal of official approval upon English as secondary language for China's four hundred millions. 106 YEARS OLD, CAN WALK 4 MILES A DAY Josiah Zeitlin Danced on His 106th Birthday and Was As Lively As a Cricket.

RAINDROP STARTS AUTO KILLS PHYSiClAW Dr. Duchastelet Knocked Down by Machine After Attending the Opera Special Cable to The Inquirer. Copyright, 1010, by the New York Herald Company. PARIS, July 16. Dr. Duchastelet, the friend of Francois Coppee, and who was jartk-ularly well known in journalistic and theatrical circles in Paris, met his death under tragic circumstances on Monday evening, being crushed by his own automobile. The doctor had been to see the performance at the Alcazar d'Ete. On coming out he went to the front of his electric automobile to light one of the lanterns when suddenly the vehicle started off at top speed, dashed the doctor against another automobile which was standing in front of his own, carrying him a distance of some yards. The practitioner was picked up unconscious and taken to the Beaujon Hospital. On the way he recovered consciousness and was able to tell the house surgeon that he was injured internally and he feared mortally. He died a few hours later after suffering great pain. The cause of Dr. Duchastelet's electric automobile starting is explained in a curious way. It is supposed that a drop of rain fell upon the rheostat and set up a short circuit. The current was thus suddenly applied to the motors and the vehicle started off. Dynamrte Kills Three PBRPIGXAX.
