War or New llegime In
Threat of Italian People
Rome Political parties favorable to
Italy's immediate intervention in the
war, comprising Democrats, Radicals,
Reformists, Socialists and National
ists, have arranged great meetings to
be held throughout Italy in an en
deavor to bring about the participation
of the country in the conflict.
The Journal d'ltalia, commenting on
the event, says that it has assumed the
character of a warning to the mon-
archy, since the National league,
which arranged the meeting, adopted
a resolution containing this sentence:

New York — With transactions ag

gains extending from 3 to 7J points in

worthy of any day since July 30 last.
On that date, which marked the issu

of feverish activitity at the ex[>ense of
prices. The operations were all the
other way, only s few of the unimpor

broad and steady advance.
On the surface, the market had the
signs of a general awakening of public
interest, due to a variety of favorable
factors, including the statement of the

"The simple recital of a day’s aerial

Colonies of Two Nations.
The loss of Brazil brought the Port
uguese dominion down from the proud
position it held at the beginning of
the nineteenth century. But at the
beginning of the twentieth century she
remained the mistress of a colonial
empire surpassed only by Great Brit
ain, France and Germany. The cli
mate of the Portuguese colonies is,
however, unsuitable for European col
onization, and the colonies have no
commercial value commensurate with
their great extent. The Portuguese
colonies are: In Africa. Cape Verde
islands, St. Thomas, Madeira and
Prince's islands; Portuguese Guiana.
