RALLY TO CHAMBERLAIN'S SUPPORT
Only opposition Will Be From Small Groups of Irish Mcirtcrs
-An Acrid Protest From William Watsoni the
"Senator Hoar" of England. '
, NEW YORK, Oot 17.-A despatch to
the Tribune from London says:
Parliament will meet today with
every Indication that the two main par
ties will unite In voting supplies for
war without controversy or partisan
bickering.' The small group of Irish
members may offer some oposltlon,
but public opinion Is strongly In favor
of ths vigorous prosecution of the war
and the loyal support of the govern
ment. This feeling was shown by two
enthusiastic meetings at the Qulldliull
yesterday, when the business men ral
lied to the support of Mr. Chamber
lain's general policy.
Only a few votes were raised In pro
test. One of these last Is William Wat
sons, whose aoiid letter to the Dally
Chronlole today will exolte mtioh re
sentment. He writes:

the Herald from Washington says:
President McKlnley will, It is expect
ed, devote considerable attention In his
forthcoming annual message to an
other executive branch of the govern
ment with a cabinet officer at its
head, to have charge of interstate and
foreign commerce. It seems to be
pretty well settled that a recommend
Hlon will be made for a new depart
ment of commerce, but Its full scope is
still a matter for discussion and will
probably not be decided until various
subordinate officials of the government
have submitted the data which they
I have been requested to furnish and
there has been a general exchange of
views around the cabinet table.
Some of these favor the creation of
a new bureau In the state department
to have control of the colonies and the
: creation of a new executive department
1 which will absorb all branches relat
Ing to the regulation of interstate com
merce and the extension of our foreign
commerce In the foreign fields which
are now scattered among the several
: existing executive departments. All
agree, however, that the war depart
i ment, which Is now In control of all
I the new dependencies, is aot the proper
I department to have Jurisdiction over
i these possessions when a civil govern
ment has been substituted for the military.
