SHOUTS OF VICTORY
Liberals Make House of Com
CALL ON BALFOUR TO RESIGN
Defeat of Loder at Brighton a Body
Blow to Unionists Balfour
Sneaks Out and Is Sav
X.ONDON, April 5. The House o Com
mons tonight was the scene of a re
markable demonstration based upon the
iefcat of a government candidate in the
bye-election for Brighton, a constituency
which for 20 years had not failed to re
turn Conservative or Unionist candidates
lor Parliament by majorities of 2000 and
The House had been engaged in con
sideration of a resolution offered by Sir
William Tomlinson, Conservative, de
claring that "in view of the peril to
which the industries of the United King
dom are exposed by too great dependence
on the United States as the source of
supply of cotton and the good results of
operations already undertaken by the
British Cotton-growing Association, the
House desires to express its appreciation
of the benefits derived by the encourage
ment afforded by the government to the
association and looks to a continuance
of good offices as essential to the speedy
development of the resources of the col
onies, dependencies and protectorates for
the maintenance of employment in one
of the great national industries."
A number of members spoke In support
of extension of the British cotton-growing
territory. Mr. Emmett (Liberal) said
the cotton-growers of the United States
were already jealous of the government
experiments in the West Indies.
Exultant Liberals Interrupt.
While a somewhat desultory and unin
teresting debate was dragging on, there
was a rush of opposition members from
the lobbies shouting with joy over the
Liberal victory In Brighton, where Ger
ald Loder was seeking re-election on his
recent appointment as Junior Lord of
the Treasury, the Liberal candidate be
ing E. Villlers.
"Villlers is in'." was the cry. which
was received with great cheering. Pre
mier Balfour, Who was just then enter
ing the house, was greeted with shouts
of "Resign!" "Resign!"
Colonial Secretary Lyttloton had been
peaking when the Interruption came
and after the demonstration had been
quieted, continued, . saying that since
l?Kir2 the production of cotton Inside the
British Empire had trebled. The govern
ment, he added, had not relaxed Its ef
forts looking to a further Increase. Ho
trusted that Lancashire would assist tho
work more liberally in the future.
The resolution was adopted unanimous
ly. Mr. Balfour left the House almost
Beginning of the End.
On a motion to adjourn an extraordin
ary scene occurred. Mr. Lloyd-George,
Advanced Liberal, said he had Intended
to question the Premier on the fate that
has befallen a member of the adminis
tration at Brighton. He complained that
on receiving notice that the question
would be raised, the Premier had delib
erately left the House. The Premier's
discourtesy to the House, he said, was
becoming absolutely offensive.
Several members spoke In support of
.Mr. Lloyd-George, declaring that the
Government ought to resign.
Winston Churchill said it looked like
the beginning of the end, and that it
was retribution on the government for
its shams and shuffles and for the man
ner In which the Premier had treated
Sir Alexander Acland-Hood, represent
ing the government on the, treasury
bench, having declined to accede to the
request to adjourn till Monday In order
to enable the government to consider its
position, the House adjourned amid loud
UNIONISTS ARE WORRIED.
Vainly Try to Explain Defeat Bal
four and Chamberlain Confer.
LONDON, April 6. Unionist editorial
articles this morning reflect the consterna
tion caused by tho unexpectedly heavy
blow, of the Brighton election. Various at
tempts are made to explain the defeat
away. The Standard appeals to Promler
Balfour to. issue a stirring address or call
a meeting of his followers and take them
Into his confidence.
Mr. .Balfour had a long conference with
Joseph Chamberlain last night.
The position of Gerald Loder, the de
feated candidate, is very peculiar. His
duties as Junior Lord of the 'Treasury are
nothing more than a party whip, but ho
has now no seat in Parliament.
BALFOUR LOSES A STRONGHOLD
Brighton Elects 'Liberal for First
Time in Twenty Years.
LONDON, April 5. The most striking
overturning of a Lnionlst majority
among the recent defeats in bye-olec
tions was recorded at Brighton today.
when Gerald Loder, Unionist, recently
appointed Junior Lord of the Treasury.
was defeated by E. Villlers, Liberal. Va
lors' majority was S17.
The Conservative majority at Brighton
in the past 20 years was never less than
2000. Mr. Loder was seeking re-election
at this time on his appointment as Junior
Lord of .the Treasury.
The election turned almost altogether
on the fiscal question. The Liberals did
not expect to win, but would have been
well satisfied with a reduction of the
hitherto consistent Conservative majority.
EMPEROR GIVES UP STRUGGLE
No Agreement in Hungarian Crisis

VIENNA. April 5. Emperor Francis Jo

of the Hungarian Cabinet crisis have been
.fruitless, and today the situation Is prac

ST. PETERSBURG, April i.-Queer

CHANGE IS CHARTER.
St. Johns City Attorney-Elect Will
Judge S. H. Green, elected City Attor
ney of St. Johns, will place his resigna
tion in the -hands of Mayor-elect W. H.
King as soon as the latter is regularly
Installed in office, in order to avoid future
legal complications that may arise con
cerning his eligibility. While the charter
that has been printed and under which the
recent election was held is the one which
passed the House and Senate and
received the signature of the Governor
It is not exactly the charter that is on file
In the office of the Secretary of State. The
charter as printed, so It is claimed, and
as passed by the Legislature makes the
office of City Attorney elective, but the
charter as filed In the office of the Secre
tary of State makes the office of City
Attorney appointive. It is charged that
the change was made after the passage
of the charter bill and-before it was filed
In the office of Secretary of State. Judge
Green said yesterday that there Is no
question about the change being made
after the charter had been passed.
"I have a letter from Mr. Gatens," said
Judge Green, "that says the charter on
file fn Salem makes the office of City
Attorney appointive. There were no
amendments made to the charter in either
house. We were not allowed to get hold
of It for that purpose, so this change must
have been made afterwards, and for ray
benefit, as for the past five years I have
not been on the best of terms with the
people who got up the charter and got
it through. They thought that I was
really the only available man for the
office of City Attorney, so they thought
that if made elective I might be elected;
therefore, the charter was altered, mak
ing the office, appointive. They claimed
that the printed charter, making tho of
fice of City Attorney elective, was wrong.
and said that tho correct charter on filo
in the office of Secretary of State, mak
ing It appointive, is the correct charter,
and hence neither the Citizens nor Inde
pendent tickets made nomination for the
office. Only the Good Government people
nominated me for the office. I shall re
sign and give Mr. King opportunity to
ppolnt an attorney to prevent possible
legal complications. If any question should
arise as to the legal Interpretation of the
charter, concerning the election of the
City Attorney, of course recourse would
be had to the charter on file in the office
of the Secretary of State. If 1 resign,
that will make the office vacant, and then
the Mayor can legally appoint a City At
torney to nil tne vacancy, uwing to tne
peculiar situation of the charter I can

State Department Papers Show Part
He TookWhile Other Powers
Hesitated, He Spoke Out.
WASHINGTON, April 5. That It was
upon the suggestion of Emperor William
that President Roosevelt. last February,
undertook to arrange certain actions on
tho part of the neutral powers for the
purpose of Inducing the belligerents In the
Far Eastern War to respect tho neutral
ity of China, Is for the first time offi
cially disclosed in the advance sheets of
foreign relations made public at the State
Department today. It has been hinted
for a long time Jhat the German Emperor
was the initiatory force In these Import
ant exchanges, but It has until now been
impossible to obtain any official confirma
tion of the fact.
In the correspondence with Germany. Is
included a paraphrase of a cablegram ad
dressed by Secretary Hay to Mr. Tower,
the American Ambassador at Berlin, Feb
ruary 15, after Germany's acceptance of
the Invitation of .Secretary Hay had been
received directing the Ambassador "to
convey to the Emporor the Presidents
profound appreciation of his generous In
illative and powerful co-operation In the
matter of Chinese neutrality."
The official paraphrase of Mr. Towers
reply, dated Fobruary 17, reads:
"Mr. Tower reports that he conveyed to
the Emperor the profound appreciation of
tho President of his initiative and co
operation in tho matter of Chinese neu
trality, and that the Emperor was ex
ceedingly gratified and expressed most
friendly sentiments toward the Presi
dent." It is significant that in the acknowl
edgment of the acceptances by the other
powers of tho programme suggested by
Secretary Hay In his note of February
8. only in the case of Germany did the
President send a personal message of
appreciation to the sovereign.
It Is not possible to state that the rea
son Germany's Initiative was kept secret
was because of the German Emperors
belief that the suggestion about Chlneso
neutrality would be the moro certain
of success If emanating from Washing
ton, particularly In view of Secretary
Hay's previous activities In the same di
rection after the Boxer troubles of 1S00.
Accordingly, his suggestion was conveyed
to the President through Speck von Stern
berg, the German Ambassador. Secre
tary Hay returned at once from thp
South, and after a conference with the
President and the German Ambassador,
undertook the far-reaching diplomatic
move to which Is due the fact that
China's neutrality has thus far been for
the most part respected by Russia and

phrase, it can be stated, was not in

tion of Chinese neutrality, but was the
creation of Secretary Hay. Later
France signified her full acceptance.
Italy preferred to await the views of
the Cabinets at Berlin, Paris and Lon

of the world," and that Germany be
licves that to attain these purposes

and the German government Is pre
pared to act in harmony with the
United States and the other neutral
powers to assure the neutrality of

NO FEAR OF BOXER OUTBREAK
Conger Disposes of False Alarm
Raised by Russia..
WASHINGTON, April 5. Russia lias
been informed by the United States that.
so far as the American Minister at
Pokln. Mr. Conger, has been able to find
out. the reported anti-foreign movements
in China are not unusual In extent or
character. The Russian government re
cently requested Secretary Hay to in
quire into this matter, which was a
cause of some anxiety at SL Petersburg.
Mr. Conger says that during the past
year he received information at various
times of tho existence and activity of
certain secret societies In different prov
Inces. The societies have existed dur
ing the whole period of the Manchu rule,
and as a rule, local rebellions occur near
ly every year. The aim of the societies.
Mr. Conger says, Is to overthrow the
present Manchu dynasty, and at times
they have attacked foreigners. Mr. Con
ger finds that at presont these societies
are not unusually-, active except in tho
province of Kuangsl, and that there the
movement Is wholly antl-dynastlc.
Before receiving his Instructions Mr,
Conger already had called the attention
of the Chinese Foreign Office to the re
ports in circulation and had been as
sured in a note that the .rumors as to
such wore baseless; that a society of
bandits had been discovered at Tsuchou
in this province. Chill, and several of Its
members arrested and that the Governor
of Hunan had Informed the Chinese gov
ornment of the arrest and execution of
two members of the society at Anyang,
In that province. Concluding his re
port. Mr. Conger says:
I have the honor to state that, in my
opinion, while more or less dissatisfaction
exists throughout the country, It is not un
usual in extent or character. The secret
societies are chiefly anti-dynastic In the!
forms, but are also hostile to foreigners and
.were they able to effect a general rising,
undoubtedly would attack foreigners as well
as the Imperial officers, civil and military
But these societies aro scattered over an
enormous extent of country, arc widely sep
arated from one another, and are not work
lng in harmony. Every attempt to create
a disturbance has been futile so far, except
in Kuangsl and there the rebels held nottv
ing but their mountain fastnesses. The cen
tral government is alert and determined to
prevent any disturbance of the peace and Is
earnest In Its efforts to' protect all foreign
lives and property.
MUST IMPROVE THE WHANGPU
Hay Calls Attention to China's Neg
lect of Her Agreement.
WASHINGTON, April 5.-ChIna's failure
to assist the powers In undertaking the
. lmnrovement of tho Whangpu River, as
she was pledged by the peace protocol of
1991 to do. and the inability of the Ameri
can Minister at Pekln to obtain any satis
factory explanation on the subject, caused
Secretary Hay recently to address the
Government's signatory to the Pekln peace
protocol on the subject
Mr. Hay expressed this Government's
acceptance of China's conditions that the
protocol be so amended as to enable China
to undertake the entire work unaided by
the powers. This acceptance, however.
was conditional on the presentation by
China of good and sufficient guarantees
that "China would promptly begin tho
work, carry it to a satisfactory conclusion
and maintain it afterward."
The other powers wero asked to instruct
their diplomats at Pekln In accordance
with this last proposition. Thus far China
has not fulfilled the Secretary's condi
Japanese Minister Will Rest.
WASHINGTON, April 5. Minister Taka-
hlra, of the Japanese delegation, called on
Secretary Taft today and told him that
on account of the state of his health he
would be compelled to leave Washington
for a different climate. He also states
that there have been no further develop
ments toward a settlement of the war.
The Secretary and the Minister arranged
to communicate with each other In case
anything happens to make It necessary.

at Atrra. No loss of life is reported from
Delhi, but many buildings were damaged.
Visitors from ilussorec report consid

a curious fact that the older houses In
Mussoree received less damage than mod

ported there were two natives. Many
houses were completely aemouaneu. ins

heard It. The mountains heaved and
swayed a full minute and then three se
vere shocks, each lasting a few seconds,
were felt In quick succession. Between
6 o'clock In the morning of April 4 and
midnight there were 12 shocks. The day
was fine and clear and most of the in

that of a ship in a storm, while those
on foot found It Impossible to maintain
their balance. Many narrow escapes are
reported. The eeffct of the shock In sick
