SHAKING OUT HAS HELPED

(Copyright, 1910, by the Tribune Com
LONDON'. Feb. 7. Protection in Eng
land Is dead. That, at all events. Issues
clearly from the results of the general
election. In some respects the election
has been a disappointment to Liberals
and to Irishmen, but, on the other hand,
this supreme fact stands out, and that
Is a big compensation. The sharply
divided lines between the different sec
tions of English life were never more
clearly drawn than in this great con
test. The south of England, that beau
tiful, sleepy, feudal land, which you
meet from Dover to London, remains
inert in Its century-old sluggishness.
AV'ithout manufactures, without com
merce, -without education, without free
dom or any instinct for change, it has
reverted to its inherent Toryism and
once more crawled under the heel of
the parson and the squire. It is no
more like the north of England than
old Salem Is like Chicago.
Sussex Dare Not Tax Yorkshire.
In Yorkshire, in Lancashire and in
the great iron and coal regions of
Scotland and Wales, life is whirring
with the same activity as the gigantic
mills, and the people are robust, phys
ically, mentally and politically. All
these portions of the country have not
only declared against protection but
have done so with even greater strenu
ousness than at even the mightly land
elide Liberal election of four years ago.
It Is quite evident that no ministry
rould propose a protective tariff in the
ace of such a. verdict for free trade
from these portions of the three king
doms. Sleepy Sussex dare not tax pro
gressive Yorkshire and Lancashire. If
any attempt were made, especially if it
were accompanied by a tax -on - food,
there would undoubtedly be a violent
nd perhaps revolutionary outbreak in
ill the industrial parts of England that
would sweep away the ministry and
perhaps a good many other things be
fore it was done with. Amid the loss
of many hopes, this great triumph for
the progressive forces of England stand
DUt in bold relief.
The situation in the next House of
Commons will be extraordinarily inter
esting. The Irish party will hold a
dominating position more dominating
than its wiser heads altogether relish.
Often It will be In their power to keep
In or to put out the ministry. There is
something fascinating, no doubt, in
having such omnipotence, especially
when one remembers all that Ireland
has suffered under majorities of both
Kngllsh parties. But it is more fas
cinating than safe.
There is always a certain dislike of
all governments in Ireland, and the
crank, who plays his usual part in Irish
as in other politics, for ome inscrut
able reason dislikes the Liberal more
than the Tory. The Liberal tries to do
everything conditions will allow him to
rlo for Ireland, and as the Tory has no
policy for Ireland but a blank, bitter
refusal of home rule. I find it diffi
cult to understand this state of mind,
hut It exists. I have little doubt, then,
that a number of Ignorant and un
thinking people will always be shout
ing out to the Irish party to put out the
Extremists Will Shout.
This shout will begin the moment the
new House of Commons comes into be
ing. The first business of the govern
ment will be to pass the budget. The
budget has been denounced in Ireland
by luctlonlsts and cranks, by William
O'Hrien and Tim Healy, as blasting
Ireland with an addition of two million
sterling a year. The statement is, of
course, a lie; but it is the kind of lies
tome Irish people readily swallow. An
attempt will be made to bustle Red-
Mond and his party into opposing the
budget and defeating the government,
r don't think Redmond has the least In
tention of yielding to this pressure.
It would mean that the campaign
against the House of Lords would come
to an Immediate and ignominious end,
and that in this way the hopes of Ire
land once more would be blighted. But,
of course, O'Brien and Healy will speak
to the gallery and denounce the Lib
eral government and the Irish party;
and the Sinn Felners and all the other
senseless factions will join In the cry.
However, these peoplo are of no im
portance, and they are less important
now than they ever were. Redmond,
indeed, comes out of this election with
enormously increased power and pres
tige. He said himself at the beginning
of the general election that he would
sooner have his followers reduced to 70
loyal men than to have the old dis
united ranks numbering 82. His party
will be nearer SO than 70. and it -will
be a united party. One of the
scandals and the weaknesses of a party
which had within its ranks O'BrJenites
and Healyites was that no meeting of
the party was to be regarded as pri
vate. Ttw worst enemies of the Irish
party in the press of Kngland or Ire
land could get as good an account of
what took place at the secret conclaves
of the Irish party as though they had
a reporter present.
O'Brlenltes- Pay Stopped.
There was another and more exasper
ating fact. The very men who under
the leadership of O'Brien were doing
their best to destroy and bankrupt the
Irish party were the tirst to come with
their demand upon its funds. Kvery
month they clamored for their checks
Just like any loyal member of the party:
and they clamored Just as loudly when
they returned to London after a cam
paign against the Irish party on the
platform or newspaper offices in Ire
land. That state of things comes to uxi
end with this election. Not a single
follower of O'Brien or Healy- will
be admitted to the Irish party; not a
single one of them will get a shilling
of the Parliamentary funds. They will
have to fall back on the checkbook of
Mr. O'Brien. That checkbook Is fairly
bulky, but this demand upon It will
be rather more than Mr. O'Brien will
relish. Therefore, though it is disap
pointing that either Mr. O'Brien or Mr.
Healy was gain rettirned to Parlia
ment, it Is some satisfaction to know
that faction has received a deadly blow
and that there will be one united party,
with few camp followers making trou
ble la the rear.
The Irish party, then, may be relied
fa to at&nd by the Liberals in the cam
paign against the House of Lords. But
will the Labor element be so reliable?
It will not number so largely In the
new as In the old House of Commons;
but still it will be a decisive factor,
able at certain moments to destroy the
government." The Labor members are
of different types. Some are reasonable
men and good Liberals, well realizing
the fact that they can get more from
the Liberals than from such inveterate
enemies aa the Tories. They can be
relied on to help In the struggle against
the Lords and to remain with the Lib
eral party at least till that bit of work
Is done. But there is another section.
One of the wildest of that section, Mr.
Victor Grayson, has been defeated, and
that makes for good sense and union
between Liberalism and Labor. But
Keir Hardie is rather fanatical, and he
has made it his mission . to break up
the Liberal party and substitute for it
a Socialist party. But this project Is
rather hopeless, and he may be over
borne by the more rational leaders of
the Labor party. Still, even the most
rational Labor leader has his diffi
culties. They, have their gallery Just
as the other parties have, and their
gallery is rather exacting ami irra
tional. This gallery may force their
hand when the government has to re
fuse some Irrational proposal of theirs.
PETE SHOCKS BRONX ZOO
FLIRTATIONS OF MKS. MUR
PHY'S LITTLE BOY SURPRISES.
'Twas Something Awful the Way He
Carried on With Certain Jun
NEW YcVRK, Feb. 7. There Is a
sure day of reckoning coming for old
Mrs. Murphy's little boy, Pete, at the
Bronx Zoo. He is the hippopotamus
who was born a few years ago to
the old lady of the same family in
Central Park who has been dear to
the hearts of generations of little chil
dren. If the old lady ever finds out
how little Pete has been cutting up at
the Bronx Park it is expected by those
who know her love of respectability
that she will smash down a few
lengths of her cage fence and waddle
up to the Bronx to chastise the young
The truth is that Pete is an awful
flirt. He's been wrecking family hap
piness ever since he's been up there.
First it was old Mr. Giraffe who no
ticed his young wife making eyes at
the stout young Mr. Pete, and now It
is Gunda, the big elephant, " who is
When Pete was a small hippo he
was put into a cage with a tank in the
oid antelope house. Next door was the
cage of the giraffes with a yard in
the rear. Young Pete would stand by
the hour winking and blinking up at
the high wall of the Giraffe family
house, and young Mrs. Giraffe, of the
long neck and soft velvety eyes, would
stretch her neck over the fence and
look down fondly upon him. It got to
be such a scandal that even the mon
key folk over in the primates' house
got to gossipingabout it. Then the
keepers put up a high wall that Mrs.
Giraffe couldn't see over, but as this
didn't prevent their seeing each othe.'
through the yard fence, they moved
young Pete out of the house when
the new elephant house was finished
and put in a big cage with a tank
where he could swim.
Everything went well till the young
Lothario began to get tired of his
cage and to long for excitement. Then
came Alice, the Indian girl elephant,
from Coney Island, to be wedded to
Gunda, the old hero of the Bronx chil
dren. Gunda's cage is In the south
west end of the big elephant house
and Alice's cage is in the southeast
corner. Across from her in the north
east corner is Pete's cage. It didn't
take Pete long to attract the attention
of the handsome Alice, or Luna, as she
was called at Coney.
He just sat down and looked mourn
ful and lonely and now and then let
one of those tears for which hippos
are famous trickle, like a brook, from
the corner of his bulging eye,, and it
was all up with Alice. She threw him
trunkfuls of sympathy, which would
have been all right if Gunda hadn't
noticed that whenever Pete went
splashing into his pool and stayed un
der water Alice got nervous and
trumpeted her anxiety. Her concern
for Pete, at whom she could cast eyes,
and her disregard for her lord and
master, whose cage she couldn't see,
made Gunda jealous, and now the air
of the elephant house is charged with
scandal and even the ostriches are
giggling and talking about it.
DUCK EATS YEAST; GONE
Strange Accident to Prize Fowl De
stroys Man's Sight.
DE3 MOINES, la., Feb. 7. The
strangest accident recorded In local
history occurred when Rhadamanthus.
a duck which had taken prizes at the
recent Iowa poultry show, exploded
into several hundred pieces, one of
which struck Silas Perkins in the eye,
destroying the sight.
The cause of the explosion was the
eating of yeast placed in a pan upon
the back porch, which tempted his
duckship, who was taking a morning
When Mr. Perkins discovered his
prize duck it was in a somewhat "logy"
condition. Telltale marks around the
pan of yeast gave him hie clew.
He was about te pick up the bird
when the latter exploded with a loud
report, and Mr. PerRins .ran into the
house holding both hands over one eye.
A surgeon was called, who found that
the eyeball had been penetrated by a
fragment of flying duck, and gave' no
hope of saving the optic.
Mr. Perkins advises that if ducks and
yeast are to be kept on the same prem
ises, they should be kept as far apart

TEUTONS QUIT JOB
Germans Refuse to Work
Upon Brazilian Railroads.
UNSANITARY LIFE CHARGED
Conditions Prevailing in Western

.East, Where Material Prog

BERLIN, Feb. 7. (Special.) The
latest steamers returning to Germany
from Brazil have brought back a large
number of Germans who were engaged
as workmen on the Madeira-Mamore
Railway in the extreme west of Brazil.
About 500 laborers went there on a
year's engagement, only to find the con
ditions intolerable. The commissariat
and sanitary conditions on the railway
were so bad that many of the men fell
sick, and 12 or 15 died.
The remainder have thrown up their
work and have had to be brought home
at the cost of the Imperial Government.
They are said to be preparing to bring
action against the railway company
for breach of contract.
Warning Is Sent Out.
The Imperial Government, It appears,
was asked to co-operate In sending out
the men in the first instance, but de
clined. Meanwhile, reports had been
received from Brazil that the district,
on the Upper Amazon, where the work
was" to be carried out, was exceedingly
unhealthy, and a warning was issued
to persons contemplating proceeding
thither, though as there was no ques
tion of permanent emigration- the
Foreign Office could not prevent their
A further warning to Germans is
now issued, from the point of view of
Imperial economy, against accepting
work in Brazil without the previous
consent of the German government.
Road Develops Territory.
A more cheerful report comes from
the Blumenau-Hammonla Railway, In
the east of Brazil, which has been built
with German capital, amounting at
present to about $1,625,000, and of
whicl S8 kilometers will shortly be
opened for traffic. Various industrial
undertakings are springing up as a re
sult, and a considerable rise in the
price of land has already occurred.
The railway suffers at present from
the fact that It has no connection with
the sea. but negotiations are in pro
gress with the Brazilian government
for a subvention of 750,000 to be paid
if the railway is extended, in the one
direction from Blumemau to the sea
at Itajahy Harbor, and In the other to
the Inland concessions of the German
company at Itajahy. For this purpose
a further loan expenditure of $2,000,000
will be required.

A strong man is strong all over. No man can be
strong who is suffering from weak stomach with its
consequent indigestion, or from some other disease
of the stomach and its associated organs, which im
pairs digestion and nutrition. For when the stomach
is weak or diseased there is a loss of the nutrition
contained in food, which is the source of all physical
strength. When a man "doesn't feel just right,"
when he doesn't Bleep well, has an uncomfortable
