LONDON, Jan. t.-A librettist In search
of a plot for a comic opera might do
worse than use the present situation of
the little North tierman City of Wismar
as a basis for one.
This city, with It 17,000 Inhabitants, Its
splendid harbor, anQ its half-dosen old
churches dating back t the thirteenth
and fourteenth centuries. Is generally
supposed to be an Integral part of the
Grand Duchy of MecklenburK-Schwerin
and of. the-.aerBVMi Empjre. In theory,
however. It is aSweGt8h-pasestm:hel'
la .Mwn bjiith Grand .Duke of Mecklen-burg-Schwerln
nd redeemable, by the
King of Sweden on June 28, 1903, for the
sum of J26.000.0u0.
A tempest In a teapot has been aroused
by the approach of the date set for the
redemption of this pawned town, al
though it might seem that excitement was
wasted In a case where one of the con
tracting partle Is equally unable to en
force Its claim against the superior pow
er of the other and to raise the sum need
ed te establish the right. Leading Ger
man jurists have,' nevertheless, written
bulky volumea on the legal, moral, and
practical aspects of the problem, all of
them arriving at the conclusion that
Wlsmat-caji never again cease to be Ger
man. ' f.
Silver-tongued orators have declaimed
In the Reichstag against the idea that one
Inch of German spl lshould be ceded to
a foreign power. Tbe food burghers of
Wlsmur have declared officially and un
officially that never, never, will they sub
mit to become Swedes agaln..Atid a mem
ber of the Swedish Riksdag has Interpel
lated the minister of foreign affairs to
find out what the government intends to
do tn order to get out of the dllemmji
In the meantime thf). Swedish people ate
rather amused over the matter.
"What Is gone Is gone," is the refrain
of the Swedish press. "The old days and
thrlr dear-bought glory can never cosie

friendly notes next Summer, agreeing to
regard the Incident as closed with th
failure of Sweden to offer payment and
Its subsequent relinquishment of all pre
tensions to sovereignty over Wlsmar. The
pretty little town will then go on pros

out of the hands of Sweden, and prob

Swedish possession In ; l&tS through the
peace that closed the Thirty Tea ns' War,
The highest court for Sweden's German
possessions was . soon, ; afterward . estab
lished at Wlsmar. andfor a few decades
the city continued to enjoy, a prosperity
wfiich was evidenced by the - existence
within it of not fewer than 200 breweries.
But from K81 to 1803 the city was con
quered and re-conquered so many times
that both the prosperity and the breweries
wholly disappeared . and the population
decreased from SO, 000, to less than. 6,000.
One year the city was Danish, another
year the Prussians held it, the third year
the Swedes came beck, arid then the ro
tation ln'1iwnt1l'fp,xvtamt'oveV' again.
Whe.n the pawning took place the city
was really not worth much more than
the Swedish King got fof It, and Its value
to Sweden was silll further diminished
by the fact that moy f the other Swed
ish possessions on the)outhern shore of
the Baltic had been taken away long. be
fore without any recompense at all..
June 26. 1903, will probably be celebrated
at Wlsmar with Batch patriotic speech-making-,
and beer drinking, not because
the day means anything at all either to
Germany or to Swedvrt, . but because such

Connecticut but did you ever . hear' ot'
tobacco made of wood? Such s. tobacco
was put out In cigarettes by an, enter
prising British firm last year, it was
shredded - pine wood, tolofcd very ar
tistically, and saturated with .certain
drugs, that gave It a taste resembling
tobacco remotely. Tne cigarettes -were
cheap, and they had a good sale among
the young. The British Arm's business
Increased. A good number of machines
for shredding wood were Installed 'fn
Its factory. The hands worked over
time to supply the trade. Then sud
denly the law stopped It. The firm was
fined $1,000.- and the manufacture of
pine-wood cigarettes came to ' sv full
sfop. Here, as a curiosity. Is a wooden
cigarette one that I saved.- It looks..
you see, like the real.'i thing;-and it
smells like the - real thing. I guess,
too, that it would taste a much like
the real thing as many of the: cheap
cigarettes that are on the market"

The Alterations to. Centenary Have
Been About Completed.
The excavations for the enlarged
basement at Centenary Church, East
Ninth and Kast Pine streets, have been
completed and the work of plastering Is

One hear much from, time - to time
about the burled treasure of. Capt Kldd
and King Christopher of Haiti, and '-many
attempts are' made to' discover- them by
adventurous American) roaming round
the West Indies. But, curiously enough,
a fa greater heard of pirate booty re
main undiscovered to this day and no
body "ver pay the slightest attention
to It or' make "the least effort to find it.
It Is the treasure of Sir Henry Morgan,
the greatest buccaneer leader who ever
scoured the Spanish main a man whom
the Dons hsted even more than Ixlon
nols the Cruel or Uontbars the Exter
minator. Tradition ay that th! treasure Is In
a hidden cave In the recesses of a moun
tain called Oun Hill, in the parish of Tre
lawny, Jamaica, Like the treasure of
Capt. Kldd, It Is said to be guarded by
"Auld Reekie" himself, hoofs, horns, sul
phur and all. - The negroes do not care
to visit Gun Hill.--There is good reason
to believe that the treasure is buried
somewhere In Trelawijy, ,but there la no
definite indication, of, even the. approxi
mate spot. ;

yond the dream of avarice Morgan was
the most sucoeejsf ul of all the bucca
neers. He sacked the rldhest cities of
the Spanish main, such as Porto Bello,
Maricaibo, St, ' Catherine' Gibraltar and
Panama. At Porto Bello he won 200.000
tdeces of eight, besides jewels, bars of
sliver, and other rich plunder. The sack
lasted 15 days, and the pirate, accord
ing to -an old chronicler, got "more gold
and precious stones than. tAtey could" car
ry." At Marscalbo Morgan' found 250,000
piece of eight, , beside Jewels, precious
stones and much valuable merchandise;
so with othar cities.. Rut the sack of
Panama, eclipsed all the rest put to
gether. Into, this city poured all the
wealth of Chile and "Peru. So rich was
It that 2.000 mules "were regularly em
ployed to carry gold and stiver bars down
to Porto Relloi where the "plate fleet"
was loaded. Morgan got there at the
psychological moment, , when slacks of
gold were waiting for the fleet, and he
didn't leave the Inhabitants enough to
pay car fare, if' they-haa cars -in tho
days. ' .
LOOKED OUT WEIX FOR HIMSELF.
Diamonds galore were also captured,
and Morgan managed to secrete the
most valuable for himself ttt addition, to
his proper share of the booty. He was
a good Judije ot preciods stones, ami
bought up for a mere Bong those which
his men secured. Thus he accumulated
an enormous horde, which, could It be
found today, would be worth many mil
lions of dollars. But there are many
more nillions of tons of mountain and
forest land to dig up In the parish of

CAN HUMBERTS BE CONVICTED?
LONDON, Jan. 2. -Although tho prin
cipal creditors of the famous arch
swindler. Mrjne. . Humbert, . have sub
scribed a sum of about $30,000 to be
used In running her.?to earth and In
bringing her to Justice a fact which
has doubtless contributed to the sudden
amazing activity of,he French police In
connection with this robbery of untold
millions of dollar It Is extremely
doubtful whether the culprits, even If
arrested, can ever be convicted or pun
ished. For the forgeries are dated
lS&t, and the principal, amounts ob
tained on the strength of them were
obtained away back In 1883. So that
these offenses are covered by the statute
If the charge of forgery Is to be
brought home It must, according to
French law, be shown . that the offense
was committed within the period of 10
years ending last May. when the affair
was taken up by an examining magis
trate, while At the. charge of swindling
Is to be proved It must be demonstratc-d
that this was practiced within a period
of three year also terminating In May.
Otherwise the Ilumberts are exempt
from all criminal' pahns ami penalties far
their frauds, and , were It not for the
danger of civil suits, could return to
France without peril of the penitentiary.
