INS UFFICTE-N T TO NNAG E. STATE CARRYING TRADE URGED. LONDON, January 11. (Received January 12, at 8.55 a.m.) The price of bread has risen from sJ,cl to 7d a Dai. The rise is chiefly attributable to the increased freights as a result of the Government commandeering so main- vessels for transport work and to the enforced inactivity of all German shipping, i aggregating ;;ix million tone. I Inquiry has discredited the statement that the riso is due to speculation and the hoarding of foodstuffs. American freights have risen by £2 a ton ami River Plate freights by £1 to £5 since the war. The suggestion is being discussed that the Government should commandeer all merchant shipping, as was done in respect to railways.

At the Educational Congress Professor Ridgway. in his presidential address, said that British lethargy had brought the leaders of thought in Germany to the conclusion that England was besotted with cowardice, luxury, and sloth, and would fall an easy prey to any martial race. That contempt was duo to the attitude of British politicians, scholars, theologians, and scientists towards everything German. With few exceptions they were a.! wavs bowing down to German idols.

Information has been received from the front bv his father, Mr d, T. Hawkins, late Colonial Civil Service, of the circumstances under which his son, a gallantofficer. Lieutenant Lionel Hope Hawkim, of the Ist. King's Dragoon Guards, met Ins death, in Southern Belgium on Hie 31st October. Lieutenant Hope Hawkins w«» killed in an attack by the Germans on the night- of Hie 31st October. It. appears that the enemy had penetrated our lines when a. parly was observed by Lieutenant Hope Hawkins approaching the trench which he held with his troop. He ordered his men t<> open fire, on litem, but they shouted : " Don't fire, we are the .Scottish,” He, accordingly gave the order to cease fite and himself got out of the trench and went towards them. He. had only gone about 30yds when the German? —for’ it was the Germans, and not the London Scottish—opened lire, and the lieutenant, was seen, to fall. Two men at once went out and brought him back to the trench. Badly wounded in the right side, ho was carried to a place of comparative safety, hut died shortly afterwards. The adjutant of Hie regiment to which Lieutenant Hope Hawkins was attached, the writer of the letter, adds: Yon have lost a- gallant son and wo a bravo and well-loved comrade who showed military qualities of a high order.” Lieutenant Hope Hawkins, who had been it. India with his regiment, was well known as a dashing polo player, and was an expert on signalling. He was home on leave when the war broke out. and was attached to the 6th Dragoon Guards when they went to Hie front. BRITISH AVIATOR HONORED.

A special medical study of the Kaiser is published in Baris, and expresses the opinion that, by reason of the chronic inflammation of the left ear from which the Emperor suffer.-, ho. is constantly exposed to an attack of paralysis, coupled with mental disorders, and sooner or later this is inevitably the, fate that will overtake him. Meanwhile, he is liable, to sudden a.iul frenzied outbreaks of temper, is a prey to maniacal .impulsiveness, and capable of any eccentricity.
