Charge of Nepotism Raised in
House of Commons,
THE REPLY MADE BY BALFOUR
Confidence of the Country In tlie
Premier Suotto In the Recent
Election Ftiture of Irish
LONDON, Dec. 10. In the House of
Commons today, replying to a question
on tho subject, the under-secretary of the
Foreign office. Lord Cranborne, said the
government had been notified that the
present disposition of the troops of the
allies on the Shan Hal Kwan railway
was of a purely temporary character.
The government, he added, was watching
British interests. Lord Cranborne also
eald the replies of the powers to the In
vitation to adhere to the Anglo-German
agreement would be promptly presented to
After some desultory discussion Joseph
"Walton, Radical, withdrew his amend
ment offered Friday last, to the address,
and G. C. T. Bartley, Conservative, moved
an amendment to the address, asking the
House to express regret at the fact that
Lord Salisbury had recommended so many
of his own family to offices under the
government. One-fifth of the Cabinet
members, Mr. Bartley said, were of the
same family. Sons would obey their
fathers, and sons-in-law and nephews
would yield to the same Influence. Such
conditions precluded an Independent In
quiry into the affairs in South Africa,
and were calculated to impair the ef
ficiency of the public service and diminish
the chances of reform in the system of
national defense. The same canker
worm of nepotism had entered the army
and navy, and It was the general opinion
that many of the disasters in South Af
rica were traceable to officers who had
obtained their commissions by family ln
liuencc. "When the Premier's nephew rose to re
ply, the House was filled with expecta
tion. Mr. Balfcur said the unhappy acci
dent of birth ought not to be a bar to pub
lic service. There was only one member
of Lord Salisbury's family in the present
government who was not in the list Mr.
Bartley, he added, had not shown that
the appointees complained of were in
capable, while the country, at the recont
election, had shown confidence that thb
Premier would carry out with ability and
integrity his thankless, heart-breaking
task. The amendment was lost by a vote
of 230 to 128.
Replying to Mr. Healy, Nationalist, who
asked whether the Irish-American and
Irish prisoners captured In the fights
with the Boers could not be permitted
to return to their homes, J. Powell Will
lams, financial secretary to the War Of
fice In the late administration, but now
a plain member of the House of Commons,
said prisoners of Irish nationality could
not be treated differently from others.
D. Lloyd George, Radical, brought to
gether a series of accusations against
Mr. Chamberlain that had been figuring
In the newspapers, and moved that no
member of the government ought to have
a direct or Indirect Interest In concerns
competing for government contracts. He
pointed out that the Secretary of State
for the Colonies held 6500 shares and other
ijnembars of his family X0O0 shares. In the
Birmingham trust, which, In turn, was a
shareowner In the Tubes Limited, making '
10,000 a year out of government con
tracts. He asserted also that Mr. Cham
berlain and his relatives held shares
worth 230.000 to 250,000 in the Eldott
Metal Company, contractors to the ad
miralty, and shares valued at 250.000 In
Klnoch's Dynamite Company, contractors
to the War Office. After enumerating
other companies In which tne Chamber
lain family, he asserted, had interests,
Mr. George declared that he was not at
tacking the private character of the Min
ister, but had raised the matter because
"this case might be used as a precedent
later to justify occupation."
After various speeches for and against
the resolution, Mr. Chamberlain replied:
"It is my personal honor that is In
volved In this question." he said, "and
1 think it hard, after 25 years of life
In the full lisht of Parliament, to have to
stand up and explain that I am not a
scandalous thief. These attacks are mon
strous and absurd. I took no notice of the
charges during the election, although
there had been a conspiracy of Insinua
tion. I had been charged with fattening
on the profits of a war I had provoked.
"Of all the companies mentioned I hold
shares in two. My relations intend to
take legal proceedings and the public
will see how these charges will be dealt
with by the courts. My relations are all
business men, and have had to make their
own fortunes. I come of a family which
boasts nothing of distinguished birth or
Inherited wealth, but has an unbroken
record for nearly two centuries of un
stained commercial intcgrityi Never dur
ing the "whole course of my political ca
reer have I been asked to use my influ
ence to secure pecuniary gain for myself
or my own relations."
Proceeding to explain his connection
with the two companies, Mr. Chamberlain
said he had Joined the Colombo Company
23 years ago. Its shares had never been
quoted on the stock exchange. The con
tract to build huts for Boer prisoners in
Ceylon was given to the Colombo Com
pany on the responsibility of the local
government without any communication
with himself. As far as the Birmingham
Trust was concerned, he said he knew
rothing whatever of Its investments, al
though he had recently ascertained that
there was a trlninc Investment In the
Tubea, limited, since his brother man
aged the business of that organization,
tut the company's small business with
the Admiralty had decreased. After hav
ing made further explanations of a simi
lar kind. Mr. Chamberlain exclaimed,
amid Ministerial cheers:
"it is not hard to have to deal with such
rubbish as this. When all Is reckoned
up, perhaps my Indirect Interest In gov
ernment contracts Is a few pounds or
-even several shillings. And yet the Hour
of Commons Is called upon to pass a sol
emn resolution which will not strike, but
will be a self-denying ordinance for many
members who do not anticipate that re
sult." In an eloquent preoration, the Colonial
Secretary declared that the attacks had
not Injured him, but had gfren pain to a
number of private individuals. Those who
had made them, he asserted, had intro
duced into public life unworthy meth
ods, and had made it more difficult for
honorable and sensitive men to serve the
country. He was loudly cheered as he
resumed his seat.
His son, Justin Chamberlain, Financial
Secretary to the Treasury Department,
followed with similar denials. R. B. Hal
dane. Radical, and others, spoke, after
which Lloyd George's motion, which was
offered as an amendment to the address,
was- rejected by a vote of 269 to 12T. Mr.
Balfour, the Government lender, then
moved the closure, which was carried by
253 votes against IS. and the address to
the throne was adopted by 263 votes
It has been long since the House has
experienced a sitting of such intense per
sonal character, and during both debates
the chamber was crowded. Nothing really
new either in the attack or the defense
-was elicited during the debate on the
amendment proposed by George, but th
House was painfully and almost dramatic
ally absorbed, Mr, Chamberlain, by nar
rowing the Issue to a vindication of his
personal honor, and Ignoring the ground
that a Minister should avoid the causes
even of suspicion, made a masterly
speech. It was a triumphant defense,
with an occasional emotional outburst,
as when he disclaimed aristocratic de
scent for his family. After Sir Campbell
Bannerman and Mr. Haldane had spoken
briefly In support of the amendment. Mr.
Balfour followed with a warm and gen
erous defense of a "Minister so pitilessly
traduced, but who, I believe, never stood
higher in the opinion of the country." Tha
Conservatives cheered wildly.
For the opinion of the public on th
question. It Is not even necessary to con
sult the Liberal papers. The Conserva
tive Standard approves the verdict of
Parliament, but put the matter In a nut
shell thus: "We could have wished that
Lord Salisbury had been able to obtain
more talent outside of his family circle,
and that Mr. Chamberlain held no shares
In any public company to which govern
ment contracts are given."
WHY KRUGER WAS SNUBBED.
Connt von Bulovr's Statement In the
BERLIN. Dec. 10. In the Reichstag to
day the Imperial Chancellor, Count von
Bulow, replying to a question on the sub
ject of Mr. Kruger's failure to be re
ceived by Emperor "William, said the gov
ernment did all in Its power to ward off
war and left the two republics In no doubt
as to the state of affairs In Europe and as
to German neutrality. When, In 1SS0, the
question of arbitration seemed not alto
gether excluded, the government recom
mended it to Mr. Kruger. He thought
the time had not yet come. "When Mr.
Kruger later sought Intervention, his
feelings were too highly inflated for the
Dutch and German Governments. For
the German Government, It was lost
time to give advice. Germany was con
vinced that any step or a great power
at that moment would lead to no re
sults. "There was no use for us," said the
Chancellor, "to pinch our fingers between
the dcor and the hinge." The Chancel
lor added that when the suggestion of
mediation was made to Great Britain
by the United States In a quiet, gener
ally worded inquiry, it was rejected offi
cially and categorically. Intervention
might have led to war.
The Chancellor described the reply of
M. Delcasse, the French Minister of For
eign Affairs, to Mr. Kruger, as: "France
will In no case take the initiative, but
would not oppose it when certain eventu
alities became known, provided they are
calculated to serve Prencn interests."
The Chancellor thereupon remarked that
he could not have dealt with the situa
tion better himself. Official recognition
to Mr. Kruger in Germany, he pointed
out, would have displaced International
relations and served no purpose of Mr.
Kruger or of Germany. Germany was
not bound to Great Britain by a hair's
breadth more than Great Britain was
bound to Germany. But to act the Don
Quixote against Great Britain would be
a piece of folly for which he would not
Although the Kruger matter will be
taken up again in the Reichstag, Count
Bulow's speech, evidently prepared with
great care, was so overwhelming In its
array of powerful facts that it amounted
to a sweeping victory over the entire op
position. So fnr as German politics go,
the incident Is closed.
The budget committee of the Reichstag
has adopted a resolution that the Chi

solved after it has finished its duty in

LONDON, Dec. 11. "Dr. Leyds and his
friends are spreading a report, says the
Amsterdam correspondent of the Dally
Mall, "that Queen "Wllhelmlna will Inter

to blind the public to the real facts,
Which are that he wrote personally to
every European' ruler on Mr. Kruger's
arrival in Europe, and from two countries
at least, France and Russia, received con
ditional promises of help in the direction
of intervention, but the plan failed In
THE HAGUE, Dec 10. Mr. Kruger to
day received a deputation from the Alt

sympathy. Later Mr. Kruger returned

NEW YORK, Dec 10. Representatives
from commercial Interests of various sec
tions of the country, principally from the
Pacific Coast. "Western and Eastern
States, will appear before the Interstate
Commerce Commission at a bearing to
consider the matter of transcontinental
rates and the concessions In such rates
now being sought by Middle "Western
Jobbers, chiefly grocery and hardware
firms. For some time past strong efforts
have been made by these Interests, and
several conferences with the railroads
have been held to have the latter adopt
a system of graded rates. If these efforts
are successful Pacific Coast rates under
the plan proposed, would always be high
er from New York to San Francisco- than
to San Francisco from any point west of
New York. Eastern jobbing Interests are
naturally working hard to prevent the
establishment of such a system. They
will be represented at the hearing today
and J. M. Langley, of th Merchants' As
sociation, will appear In behalf of the
New York shipping Interests represented
by the members of that organization.
The Western people are advocating
graded rates, that Is, if a rate from New
York to San Francisco happens to be $1
per 100 pounds, they contend that the rate
from Pittsburg on the same goods should
be approximately SO cents: from Chicago,
80 cents; from Mississippi River, 75 cents,
and from Missouri River, 70 cents per 100
pounds, notwithstanding the fact that the
rate from New York is a forced rate and
not a rata that Is the result of normal
conditions voluntarily established.

from the East. He ate Thanksgiving tur
key In Omaha where he had a family re
union, the first for several years. "While
in the East this time he was surprised
at the growing Interest In the Pacific
Northwest. The whole country appears
to have faced about and the Pacific has
taken the place of the Atlantic in gen

get an audience to hear about this Coast,
Mr. Judson says; Indeed, he was kept
so busy giving Information to eager peo
ple that his time for other affairs was
seriously reduced and he finally had to
break away and come home. A great
many people of means have their faces
set towards Oregon, and many of them
business men and manufacturers. Faith
In the Pacific Coast, because of Its own
Inherent attractions and Its opportuni
ties across the ocean, is strong, and Port
land Is looked upon as a favorite point.

THE SIX-DAY CYCLE RACE
PIERCE LED AT THE BOOTH MILE,
MAKING A NEW RECORD.
Several of the Contestants Forced
to Give Up Baseball Magnates'
Meetiasr Tarf Events.
NEW YORK, Dec U. The second day
of the six-day bicycle race at Madison
Square Garden started at midnight with
nine teams of the 14 who first began
the contest still on the track and whirl
ing around the Garden miles ahead of the
record. The men are maintaining a fright
ful average of speed. Pierce led at the
500th mile, which he completed at 11:18
o'clock? He established a new record.
At i o'clock this morning, during a burst
of speed, the pace for which was set by
Hnrry Elkes, the riders made rings about
Miller, and when he was relieved at 4:11
by Walthouer, his team mate, he had
lost four laps. At 5 o'clock, Miller and
"Walthour were last In the team race, due
to the ex-champlon's slow riding. Mil
ler's stomach failed him, and at 6 o'clock
he said his eye was finished, Walthour
was willing to go ahead, but as there are
no Individual prizes, he was forced' to quit.
At 6:45 o'clock Pierce's handlebar was
btnt, and he fell. Dubois, who followed,
tumbled over him. and Albert also went
Into the mix-up, making It a rather bad
affair. Albert had his knees scratched,
while Dubois sustained a contused shoul
der. The accidents lost the men several
laps, but, according to the rules, they
were allowed to lose but one lap after
meeting with an accident.
Harry Elkes was In the lead by a few
feet at 4 o'clock, and covered the first
century at 4:10. He was followed by
Gougoltz a fraction of a second later,
and Pierce was close behind the French
man. Elkes had burst three tires during
the morning, but had not lost any time,
due to the alertness of his partner. Mc
Farland, who was always on hand for In
stant relief Gougoltz finished 150 miles
at 6:24 A. M., being only a wheel in front
of Elkes and McEachem.
None of the men were allowed to ride
on the track more than 12 hours In any
day, but the two men in each team may
relieve one another at any time that suits
About 2:30 o'clock P. M., Albert left the
track, but was not relieved by Bleecker.
Albert was fresh enough when he left the
track, but as Bleecker came down the
steps from his training-room he collapsed,
and the team had to give up the contest.
Bleecker was sent In an ambulance to
Bellevue Hospital. When asked regard
ing a statement that Bleecker's collapse
was due to having swallowed ammonia
by mistake, Albert said that he was not
aware that anything of the kind had hap
pened. He said they were both in the
habit of rubbing their faces with a sponge
dipped in ammonia, and that Bleecker
might have swallowed some in that way.

ONLY FEARS HERRESHOFF.
LIpton's Opinion of Lawson's Pro
posal. NEW YORK. Dec 10. A dispatch to
the Journal and Advertiser from London
says that Sir Thomas Lipton, when In
formed of Thomas Lawson's announce
ment that he Is determined to build a
cup-defender, said.: .
"Let them all come. I fear but one man
that magician, Herreshoff. If he were
out of the way, I assure you the Stars
and Stripes would not be waving so high,
and that cup would long since have
changed hands. Boston naturally wants
to get a chance In the cup races. I cer
tainly would not object If she did try to
defend the cup. The New York Yacht
Club committee can pick any boat they
please. I have definitely to select my
boats months- In advance. They don't
have to name the defender until a week
before sailing, so It's purely an American
matter for the New York club to decide.
Personally, I fall to see why the club need
build a" new boat. Certainly they never
heard me complain that the Columbia
ran too slow.
"But. seriously, Herreshoff Is the one
man that I. am after. He Is, I repeat, a
magician In the designing and building
of yachts. I would be interested to know
something about the plans of Mr. Law
son. While I believe Herreshoff can turn
out tne best boats In America, there Is
still a possibility that some freak will be
constructed which will beat the Columbia.
But Lawson's energy In the game is a
healthy sign. It shows great growing in
terest in yachting.
"The work will proceed now on Sham
rock n. Watson Is giving all his time to
the pushing of the construction. Who
ever the mysterious yacht building In
Glasgow may belong to, you may posi
tively say that she is not mine, nor Is
she a possible cup-challenger, for she will
not be as fast as Shamrock II. Nor Is
she the Prince of Wales' boat. My per
sonal opinion is that she is being built
for the Kaiser."

ical world. Without any sensational feat
ures It has steadily grown and Is today
numerically greater than seven years ago,
the time of its earliest work in this com
munity; greater than seven years ago,
when the most intense public interest was
aroused by the announcement of the Dis
covery of the Cure for Catarrh. It has
that quality stronger than sudden popu
larity; the quality of abiding faith. It
has survived all competition in similar
methods. It has triumphed over every
kind of method to reach the sick. Why?
Because, the truth always survives. It
is the natural law of things. The best
always survives; that which is of service
to mankind always survives.

CATARRH 15 YEARS CURED
BY THE COPELAND SPECIALISTS.
Mr. W. H. Patterson, City Pound
master, address 530 Market street, Port
landI have been a sufferer from that
dread disease, catarrh of .head and
throat, for la years. My head was con
tinually stopped up, so much so that
most of the time I had to breath through
my mouth. There was a steady dripping
of mucus into the throat, which caused
a hacking cough, and kept me hawking
and spitting. I would have to get up
two or three times during the night to
get rid of it, which made good, sound

bad taste in my mouth and my breath
was awful. My voice was very weak
At times it failed me altogether, making
it difficult to speak or use my voice.
All this was very annoying to me, and I
was continually trying some kind of pat
ent medicine or "Catarrh Cure," but got
no relief, and, like many others, came to

tarrh. Within the last year or two my

must do something. I had heard a good
deal about the Copeland physicians, and
so placed myself under treatment with
them. Everything I ate caused great dis

bition. All this was soon changed, for 1
began to improve almost from the start,
and now feel SO per cent better. I have
gained 15 pounds and feel so well that I

SOLD UNDER FALSE PRETENSES
San Francisco Swindlers Sell Scrub
Apples as Oregon Product.
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec 6. To the Ed
itor.) I simply write this to make a kick,
as I have noticed in several instances
wagons on the street selling apples
marked "Oregon apples." These apples
slander Oregon. It Is an outrage on Ore
gon apples, in fact. Such apples as I
noted selling on the streets here marked
"Oregon" are only used for cider or hog
feed in Oregon, and It actually made me
feel angry to see such refuse put up as
coming from Oregon. We let the hogs
eat better fruit this year on my farm,
near Gresham. I think these scrub ap
ples these fellows are selling for Oregon
apples come from the foothills of Califor
nia. I called the attention of several per
sona to these apples who knew Oregon
fruit, and they said It was nothing more
than a swindle to put such culllngs on the
market and use the popular name of Ore
gon to create a demand.
