ONLY FIRST STEP IS MADE Radical Irader Says Germans Have Begun Education in Parliamen tary Government Socialists Say Compromise Made. PKRLJX. Nor. 18. The official dec laration made today y Count von Ho henthal. Saxon Minister of Foreign Af fair, in the lower house of the Saxon Parliament to the effect that the foreign affairs committee of the Bundesrath. or FederaJ Council, should met oftener In order to supervise the acts of both the Emperor and his Chancellor, apparently represents the Joint opinion of BavAiia. Wurtemburg and Saxony. These govern ments have agreed mutually to avail thempelves of the foreign affairs com mittee of the Bundesrath In order to share In the direction of foreign affairs. The Conservative and Monarchial opin ion In the country Is resisting the irove ment to travel too fast politically. Flr.t Step to Popular Power. Dr. Theo Rarth. one of the Radical leaders In the Reichstag, said today: "This is only the first step In what will be the prolonged political education of the German people for full parliament ary government. The situation Is con fused. An effort will be made to per petuate precisely the same relations be tween the crown and the people as ex isted before. Assurances such as those given yesterday will quiet public opinion for the moment, or until some fresh oc casion for action arises." The Tlpslger Neuste Nachrlchten, an Influential fjWm! - paper, acclaims the "new regime" in these words: "The German people are awake and they will not slumber again. Their true monarchial duty Is to protect the wearer of the crown against his own mistakes. The people recognize their rights and feel their strength. They have a na tional consciousness, and out of that will blossom a new life." Socialists Distrust Von Buelow. The executive committee of the So cialist party has authorlied the Vor waerts to dejwrlbe the recent occurrences an "having tegun with a scandal, then driven forward under great excitement." and as having ended In a "compromise with the government. "The Empire Is still administered by absolute bureaucracy," this paper con tinued, "and it is till governed by a single unlimited head. The decisions of court cliques, made in secret, are car ried out by a pliant Chancellor, who de rives his power frnjn the sovereign and who still remains In office." Today was observed as a National day of penitence and prayer. The clergy men In many of the state churches In thftr morning services thanked heaven that the guthertng political clouds had disappeared. HERMAN BLOOD IS COOLER Imperial l'lrtlge Viewed In Colder Llpht Than at First. BKRL.IN. Nov. 1. The results of the representations made to Emperor Will iam yesteday by Chancellor von Buelow and the consequent Imperial pledge to keep both speeches and acta within close constitutional grounds, are measured In colder mood by the people of Germany t day. The Kmperor Is still much iso lated from the sympathies of both the uprer and lower levels of society. The talk among the friends of the Chancellor and the Ministers today is that they must wait and see how the Em peror acts when the next keenly inter esting public question comes up. Doubt exists as to whether, at the age of 50, the Kniperor's Impulsive and candid dis position can be so modified by the events of the. past fortnight that he will depart from & practice he has followed during the ?o years of his reign. Prince von Fuelow and his party will pursue an opportune policy, affirming resolutely that the imperial conduct will faithfully follow the imperial word. Press of France Divided. PARIS. Nov. IS. The opinion of the French press Is divided regarding the in ternational edict of Emperor William's consent to avoid in the future personal interventions in the foreign affairs of the empire. While a majority of the pa pers consider His Majesty's assurances beneficial to the country and a victory for the German people as against per sonal rule, several of them, notably the Figaro, express confidence in the sin cerity of His Majesty's pacific Intentions, and they recall occasions upon which he Interfered in the interest of peace. They believe it unfortunate that upon this the chauvinism of German bureaucracy have been removed. Cosgrove Still Improving. PASO ROBLES. Cal.. Nov. 18. (Spe cial.)

GO TO BACK DOOR Roosevelt Shows That Rights Are Equal. HAS BETTER UNDERSTANDING Will Set Forth Views in Mes sage to Congress. LEADERS EXPRESS VIEWS Exchange or Ideas Has Illuminating Value to President, Judges and. Executive Officials Desire to Avoid Lawsuits. WASHINGTON. Nov. 18. Further conferences at the White House today between the President and men who are prominent In labor matters made the attitude of the administration toward proposed labor legislation . a subject of keen discussion in Wash ington tonight.

Gavlnan, of New Tork. attorney for the labor unions, and Charles H. Sher rlll, an attorney of New York, all of whom attended the labor dinner at the White House last evening. It is learned from the highest au thority that the object of the President In giving the dinner to the friends of labor, and in holding the subsequent conferences, was primarily to bring about a better understanding between representatives of the Government and labor leaders, and to Impress upon the labor interests of the country the dis position of the administration to re ceive Its representatives in conferences on an equality with all others. The desire of the President, it was ex plained, was to have the laboring man feel that he had the right to present his grievances and demands, and to demonstrate "that neither the labor leader nor the millionaire need come to the back door of the White House at midnight In order to have a confer ence with the President." Supreme Court of the United States and Executive officials were Invited to be present merely to enable them to learn from the leaders direct what the latter regarded as their needs. The occasion Is said to have afforded a free exchange of Ideas and to have been of "Illuminating value" to the President. While he may not adopt a labor pro gramme at the close of his admtnlstra tlont lest he might thereby embarrass his successor. It Is believed he will set forth his views on the needs of labor, either in his annual message to Con gress or In a special labor message submitted subsequently. The various conferences of the last two days are said to have brought out more plainly than ever before the de sire of the labor Interests to eliminate lawsuits in collecting damages under the employers' liability law. It has been found, the labor leaders say, that the lawsuits result in benefit to law yers only.

"It seemed very large to us, who began with only $4000 In 1S62," he said. Thus the proceedings lost, in a sense, their official aspect, because of the en gaging manner which Mi. Rockefeller displayed 1n his answers. A glow of health showed on Mr.- Rockefeller's smooth-shaven face, and to inquiring newspapermen he replied that he had never felt better. The president of the Standard was dressed in a plain business suit of dark material, and across his waistcoat was suspended a heavy gold watch chain.
