XEW DIAMOND R7NG. 'Jdventurcs of Lord Peel's Irish Son-in-Law, Rochfort Maguire. Lord Peel's son-in-law, Rochfort Maguire., who D as succeeded the late Alfred Beir as president of the British South Africa Company \nd as the head of the greatest diamond mine syndicate In the world, is an Irishman who may be said to owe his «.maz!ng success in life to a bath. It was In the cays when the late Cecil Rhodes sent him on a Bpecial mission to King Lobenrula. for the purpose cf securing certain valuable concessions from the a'.J-powerful ruler of the Matabeles. It was rather a perilous minion, as quite a number of white men had met with death at the hands of Loberigula and of his chiefs. However, Roehfort Maguire arrived at Lobengula's kraal, was received fairly re", and then proceeded to clean#>f> himself of the faat end grime of his voyage by means of a bath la his travelling bathtub. This created a tremendous amount of excitement on the part of the natives, and a considerable part of the Matabele rji'icn assembled to witness the proceedings. Masulre is not a man who loves publicity, but fee Is a bit of a philosopher, and nothing could be cooler or more deliberate than the way in which be stripped, folded his clothes, and then slipped into the water. The Matabele nation looked on •egßfnent'.rg freely, hot as he could not understand a word trmt did rot matter to hl.n. Presently ha produced a toothbrush and a box of tooth powder and started brushing his teeth. There they drew the line. The man who puts strange things Into his mouth, who loams at his lips, and turns water to milk, must necessarily be a "mtagatl," or mag.dan. Tells of astonishment rent the lr V jarty went off i,> tell th« king, taking the paraphernalia, and. what is more his tlettes. Maguire following, wrappM in philosophic calm end nothing else, beyond his hat which had bwn •"i to him. The King proceeded to m like an , nqilMt upon ™i ? ,he. and bottle. U was .^plained to h«, ■ \\ h «* «*• » Wta ■"» "«*«nr liked the rl w\,e , th. boule.. and - as for th, turning of the xraier into the King's mother-in-law Man peaed to «* °" th " ~ lfSam " da >"' -d Ms m«JeM P ; enough to a***. au-^ £2£ to the w hue mnt, . m,,;,, H N beiktf in th. ZZZ •M further confirmed by a number of conjuring «nfl sl^ht-of-hand Me*. which Maguire had Picked up nt Oxford and afterward in the Orient find the King took him into neh favor that he not only granted him ail he asked, but many other unexpected concessions which proved of Immense value to Cecil Rhodes and really founded Magulre'a fortune. "WAS PARNELI/8 FRIEND AND EXECUTOR, ncchfcrt Maguir* halls from County Limerick. being the son of a Protestant parson, and as a boy was so delicate that he had to resign a naval cadetrtlp aft-r having been graduated from the Britannia. Afterward he went to Oxford, where he made, the acquaintance of Rhodes, who. it may bo re membcred. returned to that university for the purpose of completing his education, after having made a name for himself in South Africa. Maguire did very well at Oxford, achieving the same honor as the late Mr. Gladstone of winning S double flrat" arfth bis de,n-ee. Beside, this, he d.rtinguished himself in ,orts and rode the wina*** the M steeplechase at Christ Church leaving the alma mater as Fellow of All Souls! which meant a couple of thousand dollars a year from the university. From Oxford he went to the par. from the bar to Hong Kong as private secretary to the Governor, and then Joined the diplomatic service. He was assigned to the embassy at Paris, and it is related that M one of the first Sundays after his arrival In the French capital he accompanied his chief who happened to be Lord Lytton-to the races at Longohamp. The arabas- Kdar was wearing a heavy fur coat, which he took « threw to Uagtdre, The latter was not acratomed to th* Oriental manners which Lord Lvtton had acquired a* Viceroy of India, and he flung twe coat to a flunkey, remarking that Lord Lytton must have made a mistake in thrusting it upon him. That ended Magulre's career In the diplomatic service, and he went out to South Africa to join Cecil Rhodes and to obtain for him concessions from King Lobengula by the means above described. - Then came the time when Rhodes became anxious for the support of the Irish in Parliament and made his donation of JIOO.OOO to the funds of that party. At the same time he arranged with Pnmell to have a personal representative of his own In the councils of tho Nationalist camp, and nominated tsar the purpose Rockfort Magulrp. who was at mem elected for the division of Donegal on the Nationalist ticket at the instance of ParneU. He reaaateai loyal to the latter even after the split in the Irish party, and the extent to which Parnell appreciated this attitude at a moment when all the TT-m whose political fortunes he had made were turning against him is shown by the fact that he appointed Uagulre see of the. eyecutcrs of Mj will. Maguirf sacrificed his pott for Dcr.«jral to his fidelity to Parnell. but not lon«r afterward mrrtce] the Hon. Julia Tee!, eldest daughter of Viscount Peel, who was for po many years Speaker of the House of Commons, and a son ->t the great Sir Robert Peel. From that t:me forth Maguire became Cecil MMtaaTa principal representative in London, and rve n In the most troublous times manifested t'.o same tact, coolness and imperturbability which carried him through his mission to Lobengula. He visits South Africa periodically, and both he and Ma wife were with Cecil Rhodes at Klmberley throughout its Eicge In the Boer w;r. He is a good looking Fellow, whose good natured features are fairly familiar in London society, where his appearance of amiable laziness ccnvey* but a faint idea of his powers of work and grasp of business matters. NEW KEEPER OF SCOTLAND'S PRIVY SEAL.. Lord Breadalbar.e. who has Just begat appointed keeper of the Privy Seal of Scotland, in the place of the late Lord L*-ven, is no stranger to America. Wing a frequent visitor to th« United States with his" marchioness. It Is. moreover, to one of his ancestors. Sir John Campbell, a cadet of the ducal house of Argyll, that w-« are indebted for that familiar tune 'The Cajnpbolls ore Coming," the pt rains of which may lw> heard wherever any Scotchmen are gathered together on this side of the Atlantic, and which air was first played when the Highland cliicftaln In question brought his Camp- Mai to seize the estates of one of the lords Calthnr-fis for the nonpayment of a debt It was this E!r John v:ho was creatt>d Earl of Breadalbane and of Holland by King Charles 11. TIM patent bestowing these and other honors, and bearing the sign manual of Has "Jfeiile Monarch.** is of the most unusual description, and 1 ma* even say la unique. For it authorized Lord Ereadalbane to designate by will the one of his several sons who was to kucct-r-6 him In his dignities— the eocond being selected by his father— and the patent also provide* that In the event of the male line of this specially favored son becoming extinct the earldoms of Breadalbane. of Ormllie and of Holland, with the viscounties <»f Tay and Paintland. should go to any heirs whatsoever, that Is to say, through the female line. l*rom ii. it will be seen that there la little likelihood of the titles of the present Lord Breadalbane, »-ho was created a marquis by Queen Victoria, ever becoming extinct. As In the cab?? of bo many other British peerages, those of Lord Hreadalbano liavo been the subject of lawsuits by claimants to the honors. Thus, fbe father of the present marquis, who was a cousin of bis predecessor, bad his succession to the peerage* and estates contested, on the alleged ground that h'« father had been of Illegitimate birth. His prandfather. Captain James Campbell, had sloped with the wife of a country doctor, Christopher I^udlow by name. They ltv--l together as man and wife In Scotland, and nome time afterward a son was born to th«-m. There aeems to have been a remarkable lack of definite Information as to the date of the demise of the deserted husband. Dr. Lufllow. and the claimant to the honors and estates Insisted that the late Lord Breadalbene*s father, namely. William John Campbell, of Olenfalloch. had been born prior to the death of the doctor, and was therefore Illegitimate. The case excited an Immense amount of Interest, by reason of th« extent of the Issue at ftt&lce, the Breadalbane estates being among the largest and most valuable in Scotland. After a long trial, the late 1-ord Broadalbar.e v.-as given the benefit of *be doubt, and was confirmed in the possession of the peerages and property toy a majority of tb* Judges composing the court of final appeal. The Pi—flalhane estates exceed half a million res in extent, and stretch la one unbroken line fir more, then a bundled miles In length from Tay,.vj«s Casfle, which la the marquis's .. principal country, teat. : Tavir.onth Castl« is a mairalflcent z£*ccl cqbmible* widen Qneert .Victoria waxes \try enthusiastic in the description which she gives in her published "Journals" of her visit there with the Prince Consort, away back In the forties, especially relating her attempt at butter making In the splendid dairy In a white china churn, with a handle of solid silver. Lord Breadalbane. who is a ton, handsome, stately man. decorated not only with the Order of the Garter end of the Thistle, but also with a medal for saving a man from drowning at the peril of his own life, was held In high favor by the late Queen Victoria, who saw much of him when he was lx>rd Stewart of the Royal Household, and who repeatedly designated him to lepresent her as Lord High Commissioner at Edinburgh. He on his Ride was full of attentions for his venerable sovereign, ard always used to send not only quantities of hothouse fruits and flowers, but also his fine service of gold plate, valued at a million of dollars, for the use of the Wuren when she stopped at Perth for luncheon or dinner at the station restaurant on her way to and from Baltnoral-that Is to say, about four times a year. AVlth regard to his fruit, he possesses at Auchmoie, one of hi* places in Perthshire, the mo«t famous vine in Europe, which enjoys a worldwide reputation and Is nearly treble the sise of the l.istorlc vine at Hampton Court, its annual yield of grapes averaging s,«tno bunches. LdUty Breadalba-ie is a tall, handsome woman, a most gracious hostess and a sister of the present Duke of Montrose. She is not only a magnificent e!;ot. with many a fine stag to her record, but also a splendid whip, and has recently published a new and revised edition of her standard work on hers* breaking, In which she Is an acknowledged adept. Bh. may be said to have inherited her knowledge of horses and her fondness for everything in the r.nture of sport f om her mother. Caroline, Duchess Of Montrose. so famous on the British turf as "Mr. Manton," and who lias been represented on the American stage, not altogether kindly or Justly, as "'The Sportitig Duchess." The duchess was a kind hearted old woman, passlorately fend of raring, whose highly colored and extremely pictorial lnuguage did not prevent her from being very religious In her own particular Way. Thus, having come to the conclusion that fhe ought to do something for the spiritual welfare of the tncri and boys of her own racing establishment and of other similar stables Rt Newmarket, she built and endowed a church there for their especial benefit, ami which wan attended by most ot the other members of her set at Newmarket. Having thtta built and endowed the church. she was determined that the people whose benefit she had had in view should neglect no advantage In connection therewith, and nothing was more amusing on Sundays than to nee tha old duchess march up the aisle leading by the ear one, and sometimes two, stable boys whom Rhe had caught attempting to evade attendance at divine service. After having thrust them Into a pew and released her hold on their ears, she would thea proceed to her own pew and to her own devotions' with a look of pious gatisfacflon which was most edifying to behold.

Automobile Highway to Aid in Development of Machines. To the Editor or The Tribune. Sir: In thanking you for your very kindly expression, editorially, in your valued publication, under date of Tuesday, January 22. may I not be privileged to correct one erroneous impression Into which you have fallen, In common with many others? The Parkway now being built on I»n* Island was not designed, nor Is it beln? constructed, primarily, as a speedway. The use of the parkway for speed contests Is purely secondary, and incidental to the broad and general plan. We are planning and expecting to build a touring highway about sixty miles long, making easy and attractive the travel of New York business men who reside on Long Island during varying periods of the year. This highway was flret thought of and suggested by W. K. VanderbJlt. Jr.. about five years ago. Plans were then tentatively drawn, but It was deemed inexpedient to even undertake the project, as the public had not been sufficiently educated. The Plan, as It Is now being worked out. which will be Boon carried into effect, la merely an elaboration of the plans above referred to, which were fully discussed by Mr. Vanderbilt and other motorists at that time. , The possibilities of this parkway are numerous and not generally considered by the reading public. They may be briefly epitomised as follows: A— Touring, without speed restrictions; due to the "mis" or varying Interpretations of the automobile laws. B— The conduct of contests Intended to demonstrate the efficiency, economy and durability of the motor, Its tiros, etc. C— Contests demonstrating the possible mileage oil a limited or maximum amount of fuel. I>— The possibility of long motor trials, at the present time an Impossibility. It Is hoi»'d to be able to permit manufacturers to test their motors for varying periods of Unit:, the limit only to be set by them. E— The furtherance of those engineer! who are endeavoring to solve the problem of aerostation, by means of the aeroplane, propelled either by selfcontained motor or when In flight following a motor car. Demonstration!! of this character have been utterly impossible, but will as you can see, be made a very Interesting problem. It is further contemplated by ti»> men who are, furthering tills scheme of highway construction to acquire, a small parcH of land to use for agricultural purposes, and \ on which thosa concerns which are now endeavoring to solve the problem of the motor adapted to agricultural uses, for ploughing, sowing, haying, cutting, raking, reaping, etc.. may experiment. It Is planned to offer prizes and allow competition along these linen. A. R. PAROIXOTON', Second \ ice-President an.l General Manager. New York. Jan. 26, 1907. c INTERPRETATION OF SCRIPTURE. Literalism Is a Bondage of the Spirit of Christians. To the Bdltor of Tie Neir York Tribune. Sir: Will you klr.dly give me space to reply to the address delivered by President Charles W, Kliot of Harvard University In Pilgrim Hill. Boston, on the Oat of tnls month, In which lie dealt with one of the most vital problems of our time? When President Eliot declared that •'ritualism and creeds Involve an Immense authority which binds and limits the play of the human mind, and makes a real limitation to human thought of sacred subjects." he Indicated the material bondage In which professing Christians are living a spiritualty dead life. Necessarily bo. because ritualism and creeds are a product of literal (letter) interpretation of the Scriptures, which kili-th (spiritually) (2 Cor., Hi. 6). And thin material (letter) Interpretation of the Scriptures, without ritualism or creeds. Is opposed to spiritual growth and power (the power manifested in the parly Courcb). With the machinery of the Church built and run upon an "unalterable" plan of man, and the literature, hymns and songs of the religious organisations teeming with material expressions which do not at nil express the true spiritual teaching of the Scripture*, we have a condition of spiritual darkness, nnd Ignorance of the beautiful spiritual teaming of the Bible, which Ignorance has made Christian Sclrnoe with its false ami morally, mentally and spiritually dangerous philosophy rlntheil with the, garb of the Scripture*, possible; and people lacking the knowledge of the true spiritual life full an ea*v pray to the counterfeit. (Matt. xxlv, 2«>. I^et us hope that people will awaken from their letnargy anil Indifference and lietrln to search and discover If they nave been born In the right rut after all. People take -too much for granted, and refuse to consider and w>-Ik)i and search and question, that they mu\ find that which Is spoken of as "the pear! of great price" truth, spirit (John, lv. 54). regardless of where they iln.i themselveg in relation to human tenoning-, tradition or organisation The bulk of the clergy to-day, If obeervar«on is to be depended upon, do not believe all that they tench, but they are helpless because they evidently have not spiritual llf.- enough to enable th» m to Jeopardize tl.-'.r human Interests. New York. Jan. 2*. UK CHAB. O. PKASB. EX-PRESIDENTS FOR THE SENATE. To the Editor of The Tribune. Plr: There ix no provision In the organisation of our government for utilizing the exceptional ability, Intelligence and experience which our ex- Presidents have gamed. At the end of their terms of service, having acquired ■ Btness for more than the ordinary avocations of life, they have usually dropped back Into obscurity, no suitable place appearing for utilizing the experience which no other living man can have, and, so an ex-Preatdent, after four or eight years of the closest intimacy With the great affairs of the most conspicuous and influential nation on earth, goes Into a seclusion more or leas dignified, and the country gets no more service from him. We need such men in the United State* Senate. Their absolute Independence of partisan or personal obligations would, If they were made Senators for life, ex-offldo, there add to the influence for good which their strong personalities will always command. There are now ninety members In a full Senate. The, proposed plan would add to its dignity, and would not mnke the numbers of the Senate unwieldy. There is but one man, Mr. Cleveland, now eligible for admission under the proposed rule, and the number of such Senators would never b«* large. I- B. CAItHART. Assistant United States Appraiser.

The four final contracts for the interior construction of the New York Public Library will be advertised by Park Commissioner Herman this week. They aggregate about $1,300,000. and the successful bidder for the largest will have three years in which to finish his work and put the white marble structure at 42d street and Fifth avenue in commission. Judging from past experiences, it is thought that it will be about four years before the building Is ready for occupancy. The distinguishing feature of the specifications governing the Inside, marble work Is that they state In half a dozen places that ordinary standards of excellence concerning first class workmanship are not to govern. Tha contractor will know the minute he reads* the specifications that his finished product must be 'a. little finer, if possible, than anything in the country to-day. For this reason he will have ample time. While the delay Is sure to provoke criticism from, those who expected that the building would be completed a year ago. It meets with the approval of the trustees, who are determined that the finished building shall be above criticism. Contract No. 7. the chief one. Includes the erection and completion of the interior finish. The contract provides for masonry, marble, stone and tile work, bronze. Iron and other metal work, cabinet work and carpentry, hardware, lathing, plastering. painting and finishing, roofing, models, heating and ventilation and cleaning. Nine kinds of marble will be used in the. finishing, as follows: Jaape Rouge. Touralne, Basvllle or Istrian. gray Sienna, yellow Sienna, white Italian. Danby, Belgian black and Breche vlolette. All of these save the Danby *-ill be frcm European quarries, principally from Sienna, Italy, and I.lmoges. Prance. ' The sum of $80,000 la allowed the contractor for plaster models of the carvings on inside work, and the specifications state that the contractor will be required to exercise the greatest care and precision in following the instructions of the architects with respect to all carvings of figures. Drinking fountains will be placed on four floors of the library. Among some of the more interesting features of the piano are three rooms for children's literature, with decorations and equipment suited to the little folks; a reading room for the blind, and special departments for Hebrew. Russian and Oriental research. - • The official name of the library is the New York Public Library— Astor, i/enox and Tllden Foundations. It was established by a consolidation of "The Trustees of Astor Library." "The Trustees of Lenox Library," and "the Tllden Trust," on May 23, lfifa. The Astor Library was founded in 1848 by John Jacob Astor. The Lenox Library was founded In 1870 by Jam's Lenox. The Tllden Trust, Inc., in ISST, was created by the wilt of Samuel J. Tllden. ma.!.- in ISM. At the end. by compromise of a legal contest, the trust became possessed of #1,000,000. The library is at Fifth avenue, between 40th and 42d streets, known aa Bryant Park, the site of an old city reservoir. On November 10 1537. plans of Carr£re> St 'Hasting!) were adopted, the style being Renaissance, and the material the purest white marble. Work of removing the reservoir begat) June 8. 1839. In August. 1901. the Park Department contracted with Norcross Brothers to construct the building at a cost of $2,865,705. The cornerstone of the new building was laid November 10. 1902. On account of strikes among the laborers on the marble work Norcross Brothers were delayed, and obtained repeated extensions of time on their contract. They are nearly through with their work.

PAUL VERLAIXE S SOX. Descendant of Fremh Poet a Railnay Employe. Parts. January 15. The admirers of the poet Paul Verlalne assembled on Sunday at the poet's grave and rwdted selections from "Les Fetes Galantes.*' "Bonheur" and "La Sagesse." They afterward lunched together at a famous trystlng place In Montmartre. and visited the newly baptised "Place Paul Verlalne" constructed by the Municipal Council of Paris in memory of the master of French rhythm, who. above all his contemporaries, combined astounding flights of suppleness and vigor of versification with Intense mystic sensuality. A reporter of the "Eclair" succeeded In finding Paul Verlaine's son. M. Georges Verlalne. who is earning his living as an employe at the station of the Parts Metropolitan Underground Railway, at the Avenue de Vililers. Paul Verlalne died in 1865. leaving nothing except a few manuscripts, the sal* of which enabled his son and only heir. Georges Verlaine, to be well brought up and educated. Georges Verlalne had no advantages of home life, because his parents were divorced when he was only two years old. and his mother subsequently remarried In Algeria. After calling In vain at the fifth story room where M. Georges Verlalne lives, the reporter proceeded to the Villters station, and discovered him at the foot of a stairway fastening and unfastening a chain that serves to regulate the passage of crowds of passengers thronging to the trains. "Monsieur Verlaine, if you please?" the reporter asked. A bright, intelligent, blueeyed man of twenty-eight replied. -Verlaine? Verlalne? Place Verlaine. turn to the right, and take the train for Avenue Gambetta." "No. no. I want to find- M. Georges Verlalne, son of the great poet." "I am Georges Verlalne. at your service." A conversation ensued. In the course of which M. Georges Verlaine explained that he had no recollection of his father. "Nevertheless. I wrote to him. When I was doing my military service as a private soldier in an infantry regiment it was arranged that after my release from duty I should go to live with him. But my father died without my having seen him since I was a child two years old." "Have you any souvenirs of your father?" "Almost nothing. A few photographs, and one or two manuscripts of poems." "Where did you receive your education?" "At the Lycte Janson. and afterward I passed a year in England. I have also acted as private secretary to a literary man of prominence." "How does It happen that you are an employe of the Metropolitan railroad?" "The money derived from the 'author's rights' on my father's poems Is very limited. I am young, and in good health, and I must earn my living, and I find that I can do so here In the Metropolitan underground railroad better than elsewhere. I stand well with my superiors and have a promising career before me. I certainly can earn more money here than by literary work. for which I have no particular vocation." At this stage of the conversation a functionary of the "Metro" appeared with a dispatch, which was handed to young Verlalne. who promptly started forth on an errand of duty. A monument In memory of Paul Verlaine. executed by the sculptor Nlederhausen-Rodo. has Just been completed after many vicissitudes, for the monument, like the poet himself, was often In need of funds. The bust ©f Verlain* is cut out in a rough block of stone and placed on a high stela bearing three female figures, symbolic of Verlatne's poems. "IVEsprit," "Lm Chair" and "Le Coeur" ("Wit." "Carnality" and "Heart"). This monument will be placed in the gardens ef the Luxembourg Palace, on the stone benches of which the penniless bohemlan poet used to sit and ponder. FUNERAL OF COLONTL J. V F. BLAKE Leader of Irish Brigade in Boer War Honored by Irish Societies. The funeral of Colonel John Y. Fllmore Blake, who 1-d the Irish Brigade in the Boer War and was found dead in his room at No. 257 West 122 d street on Thursday, was held yesterday at the headquarters of the United Irish Leagues of America, at No. 241 West 57th street. The coffin was draped in the two flags which Colonel Blake always kept In his room; one a large Irish flag, the other the Stars and Stripes. In addition to these a mass of flowers from various friends literally covered the coffin. Besides the flowers from personal friends, there were handsome floral designs from the New Tork. Boston and Parnell branches of the United Irish League and the Associated Sunday Magazines. Michael E. Corbrey Introduced Michael J. Ryan, president of the National United Irish League, who spoke briefly of the achievements of Colonel Blake, his courage, his kindness and his brilliancy. "He was brave as a lion." said the speaker, "kindly as a woman and as guileless as a littlt- child." The speaker recalled the fact that the day of Colonel Blake's death was the anniversary of one of the greatest battles of his life, that of Spion Kop, in which Joubert defeated Buller. The body was taken to the Grand Central Station and thence to Woodlawn. where it will be buried temporarily. Among the pallbearers were Allen Sangree. O'Connor McLaughlin. Michael J. Ryan. John J. O'Callahan. of Boston; Dr. James T. Brennan. Colonel P. J. Nevlns. of Haverhlll. Mass.; John F. Finnerty. of Chicago; Patrick Egan. ex-Mtnlster to Chill, and John J. Joyce.
