Islands Are Ideal.
New York, Jan 24. The Prince '
Islands, where the allies are to meet
rfltlio Russian factions, furnish an ideal
.tm:w mr inuwu imugs in er. inert
probably is no place more ideally sit
uated for a series of quiet, unexeitd
chats Four of the nir.o islands am
prising the group are inhabited but the
totul populatitn is only a little more
than ten thousand.
Tho islands nre about 13 niikrs south
cast of Constantinople, with which they
are connected by a ferry that makes
trips every two hours', the trip con
suming about an hour and a half. The
inhabitants are .never in a hurry.
Prinkipo, the chief island "of the
group, is ten milt-3 in eimnnfcrneeo and
contains a town of the same name.
Most of tho inhabitants are Greeks,
Travelers declare that the- most beau
tiful women in. the world live the sim
ple life of these islands.
The inhabitants have home rule
which means practically no rule nt all.
There is no- government worthy of no
tice and no taxes are paid except when
the people tax theniselvs, which is sel
dom, as tho wealthy foreign residents
provide all tho improvements needed.
Few of the residents ever lock their i
doors, whether they nre at home or not !
and tho only work there is for the!
heavily armed and gaily decorated po-'
iicenien is koopmg tho goats from eat
ing tho trees. Nobody does much work
except the monks in tho, numerous mon
asteries. " , .

The Empress of Britain, which re
cently landed 2,450 United States
troops, including 400 sick and wound
ed, in New York, has a very inter
esting record. Now that the censor
ship lid is off, many thrilling stories
are being revealed concerning the
war aervice of the vast fleet of mer
chant ships known as the Canadian
Pacific Ocean Services, Limited. In
the Facifsc the Empress of Russia,
Asia, Japan, and the Monteagle car
ried thousands of troops, patrolled
vast stretches of the ocean and bom
barded hostile ports. The Empress
of Russia was in at the death of the
German light cruiser Enulen. The
first two skips transferred their ac
tivities to the Atlantic where they
transported American and Canadian
soldiers, and the Inst two named re
mained In the Pacific and are now in
troop transport service between Van
couver and Vladivostok.
Conspicuous among the Canadian
Pacific ships in the Atlantic was the
Empress of Britain which has trav
elled 176,000 miles and transport
ed 110,000 troops overseas. She took
thousands of Australians and Brit
ish to Gallipoli, and made a sixteen
months trip around the Cape of
Good Hope with troops for German
East Africa and Mesopotamia. Oh
one occasion a torpedo launched tjy
a German submarine missed her bow
by three feet. Her captain, Georrt
S. Webster, R. N. R., has marie 37
trips across the Atlantic since the
Arthur Edward Philp.O. B. E., chief
engineer of the Empress of Britain,
has been on her for over four years
and was personally decorated by
King George for his services. He il
an officer of the llritish Empire.
The Empress's war equipment com
sisted of a six-inch gun mounted on
her stern and two mortars wliicbJ
hurled depth bombs.-
Three of the new' ships built dur-
ing the war, the 18,000 ton Alsatian
and the 14,000 ton Minncdcsn and
Melita, have been doing fine work in
the Atlantic carrying troops. I
During the war Canadian Pncina
ships have transported over 1,000,J
t'00 troops and passengers in wan
service. Only eight soldiers werd
lost by enomy action. - The company
has carried over four million tons ofi
cargo and munitions and over 30M
officers and engineers entered the
Royal Navy, one of whom, LieutenJ
