Editorial Office, RMS Ivernia, Wednesday, 22 July 1908.

Associated Press Telegrams received from the Marconi Station at Crookhaven.

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. PRESENT SITUATION.

Cablegrams received from New York- state the political atmosphere is somewhat quiet after the excitement of the Chicago and Denver Conventions and both Taft and Bryan have retired into solitude.

Both candidates are busily engaged preparing the speeches to be made to the deputations notifying them officially of the candidates nomination. Some excitement prevails at the possibility of Hearst running as the nominee of the Independence League, and it is felt that his doing so would seriously mitigate Bryan’s chances of success.

GERMAN LABOUR WAR GOVERNMENT YARDS CLOSED.

A correspondent at Stettin, Germany, reports the labour disturbances have assumed a very critical stage and the construction of warships at the naval yard has been seriously interfered with. The workmen absolutely refuse to work overtime and the yards of the Vulcan Company have been closed in consequence.

THE PEMBROKESHIRE ELECTION

The bye election in Pembrokeshire resulted in a Liberal victory by a majority of 2,174 votes.

THE BALKAN TROUBLE. SERIOUS OUTLOOK.

Dispatches from Vienna report a most critical situation in Macedonia. Despite the most active measures on the part of the authorities, they appear powerless to arrest the progress of the revolutionary movement which is spreading throughout the whole of Turkey. The attitude of the disaffected troops practically amounts to rebellion and they are joining the revolutionists in large numbers.

AMERICAN FLEET’S PROGRESS. CHINESE APPRECIATION.

A Pekin dispatch says exceptional preparations are being made by the Chinese Government to give the American Fleet a hearty welcome on their arrival in Chinese waters. The part rendered by the United States in the Chinese education question meets with the warm approval of the authorities, who will spare no means to show their appreciation on the arrival of the fleet.

IHE OLYMPIC GAMES.

A telegram from London says the position of the nations in the contests being held in London is as follows :—England 30 points, United States 12 points and Sweden 5 points. Great indignation is felt in athletic circles in London at the reports cabled by correspondents to certain New York papers complaining of the decisions made by the judges. The charges, it is asserted, are absolutely without foundation and have created a great amount of resentment among athletes.

Divine Service.

Choral Service was held in the Saloon on Sunday at 10:30 am There was a good attendance, and at the close a collection was made in aid of the Seamen's Charities of Liverpool and Boston.

Amount realised £7 10s. 8d.
