British Hunter of Big Game
Has Narrow Escape
From Enraged Beast
LONDON. Oct. 21. A good ele
phant yarn, is told by J. XI ore wood
Dowsett, a weil-known big game
hunter, who taaa just returned
from a hunting trip in South Af
rica. He was huntinr elenhants Ip
Uganda when information was
brought of the wherabouts of a
large herd. With a native chief
and a house boy, he started to
Theparty came upon the herd
in theVorest. Mr. Dowsett got sev
eral pnotograpbs within 20 yards
ot tne. beasts when the chief
earned him that they bad been
"scented" and that the animal
were coming for them. Snatching
up his rifle Mr. Ddwsett shot and
killed the leader, a big bull.
While some auVrounded their
dead leader, nianji of the beasts
stampeded and, ! running the
wrong way, Mr. Dowsett was cut
off from the party; Reloading his
gun, the hunter dashed off for
safety and ran into a big bull ele
phant which crashed through the
bush six yards in; front of him.
Trunk aloft, ears extended and
trumpeting wildly, the beast rush
ed at Mr. Dowsett land swept him
to the ground with his trunk and
turned rapidly in its own length
ready to trample him.
The hunter took a flying dive
mder the monsteg's belly, realis
ing be would then be on the right
side of the wind jbut the beast
turned rapidly round and again
tried to trample him. Instead the
animal rolled him over and over
with its legs and the hunter saw
above him two great tasks as the
beast tried to raanoeuver his body
into position and pick him up. Mr.
Dowsett managed to roll behind
the animal and get to his feet and
make a rush for dover.
To the hunter's! relief and sur
prise the furious beast set oft in
the opposite direction and disappeared.

journalist and tries to out-jingo
him. The neighbor is concerned,'
but little, in other Pacific lands
is known concerning the! great
South American continent. !
"The result is that Pacific lands
are steering straight for the
shoals of chronic misunderstand
ing and worse. 'Unfortunately,
the great news disturbing (bodies
of Europe and America play an
influential part in keeping up
Pan - Pacific misunderstanding.
They control largely, the dissem
ination of world news between
Pacific lands and because of their
contracts, entered 'into long ago
when news dissemination depend
ed on now antiquated methods.
and make practically impossible
for the pres3 of the Pacific to se
cure cheap and abundant news
service to which the invention of
the wireless entitles it. When in
Japan I learned from a director
of The Associated Press that, ow
ing to a contract between the Am
erican Associated Press and Brit
ish Reuter's, world news to Japan
mnst go only through Reuter's.
T&va has asked that Honolulu be
made a drop station and ; that a
man be stationed here to select
from the drop service such news
as each Pacific country may de
sire and forward it by wireless.
Truth Is Needed i
"Who knows what may happen
In the Pacific during the next few
years if the press of the (Pacific;
loes not arise to its great duty
md by truthfully reporting dispel
some of the misunderstandings
that are arising because the press
of the Pacific is not educating: the
people concerning each i other's
"Tributary to the shores of the
Pacific lives more than half the
population of the globe. The Pa
cific is the future theater; of the
commerce of the world. Here in
the Pacific meet the oldest and
lewesi civilizations. f rom now
on the Pacific lands must feed the
world. Lack of co-operation ahd
understanding among Pacific peo
ples would prove the greatest cal
amity the world has known. The
press of the Pacific alone can pre
vent this calamity and save the
world. From now on the 'greater
part of the world's people will
have their homes in Pacific lands.
Their leaders should be brought
together for a better understand
ing of each other's alms And am
bitions, and the press should cre

the Pacific. . I
Could Solne Problems
"The men of the press in the
Pacific, when they know each
other, will learn to trust each
other and in every Pacific land
they will strive to be worthy of
this trust of their distant confre
res and the serious problems of
the Pacific will dissipate in fleecy
ciouas. understanding will su
persede misunderstanding; if only
our press of the Pacific will con
summate its high mission.!
"Perhaps there should i be two
distinct bodies in the Paq-Pacific
Press Conference. One, a league
of Pacific newspapers composed
of proprietors and -the business
staff that should outline the gen
eral business policy, deal. with the
cost 6f paper and, newsgathering,
reducing their cost by co-operative
methods, and perhaps reducing
the cost of international advertis
ing to the advertiser through sim
ilar methods of, co-operation with
business staffs of the newspapers
md magazines published in Pa
cific lands.' The other and more
important body, for the peace of
the world at least, should bs the
actual dissemination of news'-and
information concerning j Pacific
lands. They should meet! togeth
er to know each other and! to plan
work, that will' make the people
of each Pacific land, know more
about the people of other! Pacific
lands. . ;
Urge Cheaper Kates i
"The first action this body
should take would be to; obtain
a reduction in the cable and wire
less press rates between Pacific
lands and actual free trade in
wireless press correspondence,
unhampered by any private 1 or
other contracts that would mili
tate against the cheapest jpossible
rates in the dissemination of in-
ternational news and information:-
