English Vessel Just Launched Is
The Most Cosily In The
In Her Name and Invincible and
Inflexible Are Soon To Fol
low. London, April 24. The Indomita
ble, the fastest, the most powerful,
the most costly and the most mysteri
ous armored cruiser In the world,
has just been launched from Fair
field yard, Glasgow.
She Is one of the three ships oi tho
Invincible type. The other two the
Invincible at Newcastle, and Inflexi
ble, at Clydebank are to be launch
ed within the next fortnight.
With the exception of the Dread
naught each of these vessels, al
though nominally cruisers, will be
superior both In gun fire and speed
to any vessel afloat, and each will
cost even more than the Lord Nelson,
the most recent typo of British battle
ship before the Dreadnaught. ,
The cost of the Lord Nelson, which
was launched last September and
which, with her sister ship, the
Agamemnon, will be the largest bat
tle ship afloat with the exception of
the Dreadnaught, was $8,000,000, or
more than $500,000 less than any
one of the Invincibles.
These ships are the outcome of the
policy of the last unionist govern
ment and the strictest secrecy has
been maintained regarding them.
When they were flist mentioned by
Lord Selborne, the late first lord of
the admiralty, they were merely
called armored cruisers and no de
tails of their cost or even their size
were made public. That in itself
A few thousand pounds was en
tered in the estimates as the cost of
the first year's construction work and
it was not until last year that the
public was made aware that the cost
of each of the vessels was to amount
to nearly $8,000,000, and even then
the admiralty withheld from the navy
estimates all reference to the guns
with which these ships were to bo
Curiously enough, nature aided
the authorities in their desire to pre
vent any essential details with refer
ence to the Indomitable becoming
known. The flood tide was half an
nour earlier than had been expected.
The marchioness of Bradalbane, who
performed the launching ceremony,
was hurriedly sent for to the ship
building yard. She arrived only just
In time and the vessel glided into the
water before most of the Invited
pnrty had reached the launching
i.uii auuia cue
must remain a mystery until her of
ficial trial, or at least until the ad
miralty thought fit to Inform the
public as to her details.
Lord Balfour of Burleigh said it
was a wise policy of secrecy which
the admiralty had laid down and was
in the interests of the navy, for some
persons might have made a sinster
use of the Information.

Peasants Plunder nnd Kill and King
Makes Move To Stop
Vienna, April 24. The latest re
ports from Rumania describe the
spread of the revolt to southern Wal
lachla and Its sanguinary consequen
ces. In the district of Televerman the
reservists just called out joined the
peasants, plundering fifteen estate
owners and murdering the Jews resi
dent there. The Greeks have fled In
to Bulgaria. A serious encounter has
taken place at Galatz between the
peasants and the troops. Last night
the peasants tried to force their way
into the town In order to destroy the
harbor and set fire to the government
buildings. The military fired and
twenty-five rioters were killed. At
Bacesti 120 soldiers fought with 3,
000 peasants armed with guns and
revolvers on both sides men were
killed and wounded.
Jassy Is surrounded with 12,000
soldiers. The main street of this
frontier town is defended by artil
lery. The military there are faced
by bands of peasants numbering 46,
000. The correspondent of the Neue
Frele Presse at Jassy wires that from
his own observation ho can state that
in Moldavia and the northern part
of Wallachia open anarchy prevails.
The soldiers look with envious eyes
upon the peasants, who are filling
their pockets with plunder.
King Makes Move.
King Charles of Rumania has em
powered the new cabinet under M.
Sturdza, who is the oldest confiden
tial adviser of tho king, to adopt at
once throughly energetic measures
for the suppression of the agrarian
revolt. The first step taken by the
new cabinet was the dismissal of all
the perfects and the appointment of
new men. Furthermore, the govern
ment has issued a manifesto in the
name of the king announcing the In
stitution of a rural bank for the
purchase and letting of state lands
to the peasants, as well as tho aboli
tion of several taxes which weigh
heavily on tho agrarian population.
Two members of the new cabinet,
the minister of public instruction,
M. Haret, and tho minister of public
works, M. Mortzun, start this even
ing for tho disaffected Moldavian
districts personally to Intervene with
Robbery and Murder Rife.
Meanwhile, however, the revolt has
reached Wallachia and the telegrams
from that quarter are very disquiet
ing. The Rumania minister at
Vienna, Herz Lahovary, received a
dispatch informing him that his es
tates have been sacked and plunder
ed by the peasants, all tho cattle, tho
agricultural Implements and the-

against the "boyars," or squires. At
Zetestle the rioters devastated the
estate of M. Catacuzene, the minister
who has just resigned, and set it in
flames after the ballff had escaped
with great difficulty. In Cervenic
they plundered and burned the Si
nora estate and at Centranu tho

EGYPTIANS ASK HOME RULE
Loul Cromer's Resignation May Re
sult in Casting Off of British Yoke.
Carlo, April 24. The resignation
of Lord Cromer from his position as
the English representative in Egypt
has given a new impetus to the re
quest for home rule and the estab
lishment of an Egyption parliament,
a scheme which is said to be favored
by tho khendlve himself.
There has been much agitation re
cently toward this end and the chief
of tho nationalists, Mustapha Kham
et Pasha, is now publishing a news
paper In threo languages here to
promote the Interests of the move
ment. There Is no talk as yet of
shaking off the British yoke, but it
is generally believed this will be the
ultimate end of the present agitation.
