The literary programme of the Mon
day night club, at the Oregon state
training school was made unusually
interesting by Mrs. Frank . Frie key.
During the evening Mrs. Frickey
gave the biography of Richard Wag
ner, the great German composer and
poet. She also played several piano
selections from his two famous operas,
Parsifal and Lohengrin, giving the
mythological story of their origin.
This was made doubly interesting on
account of Mrs. Frickcy having seen
these operas when they were first pro
duced at the Bayrontli theatre in Ger
many. Friday afternoon Mrs. II. St. Helens
entertained the members of the Elite

Market Was Quiet and
Prices Generally Lower
New York,, Dee. 4. The New York
Evening Sua financial review today
Wall Street failed to display today
its traditional perturbation over the re
convening of congress, partly because
it feels that President Wilson will
recommend in his message a course of
procedure that will soften the effects
of the operation, of the Adamson law,
and partly because it had numerous
other things to engage its attention.
There was neither great strength nor
pronounced weakness in the stock
market. After the first buying orders
which had accumulated over the week
end had been disposed of, prices eased
off and thereafter tho general level
swayed backward and forward, punct
uated now and then by some strong and
some weak spots.
The stock market was excitable and
uncertain in the late trading, following
the sensational advance in call money
rates and a subsequent substantial re
action from 15 per cent to 1 per cent.
Prices ruled a point or more below the
lajst previous closing, Jand in many
cases several points below the high
levels attained earlier in the day.
Steel reacted nearly to 124, but rallied
a point or so.

whatever re-construction of the govern
ment was decided on, there would be no
departure from the policy announced at !
the beginning of the war. Asquith's
own statement at this time held that
England was in the war to compel re
storation of Belgium and ajtil such
time as German militarism was subdued
and the integrity of small nations as
sured. When Premier Asquith had concluded,
Sir H. Dalziel suggested he had under
stood the resignations of all members
of the present cabinet had been tender
ed to the premier. Asquith did not
Means General Chang.
Current reports late today were that
the "re-construction" meant general
change in the entire cabinet, rather than
the mere formation of an authoritative
council. This "small, compact body"
Ford and Street Car
Gash on State Street
A crash that was heard for blocks
startled people in the vicinity of State
and High streets Saturday night abouri
10 o'clock when a Ford automobile col
lided with a street car on the cast side
of the intersection. A crowd collected
as fast as people could run but in a few
minutes it was discovered there was no
one hurt or much damage douc' to the
oar or .machine. The street cat had its
fender bent over to one side and the
loft fender of the Ford was somewhat
bent. The Ford car was proceeding
north on High street and made a wide
turn into State street to go cast. After
taking stock of the damage both the
street car and the auto proceeded on
their way. Tho Ford was from Inde
pendence. for handling of the problems of the war
was the suggestion first advanced by
those known to be in sympathy with
David Lloyd-George, who apparently
precipitated the cabinet crisis.
The intense popular interest in the
cabinet situation was evidenced when
parliament met today. Government of
ficials from the war o'ffice and all the
parliament buildings packed the floor
and the galleries.
The only members of the cabinet, how
ever, who were present when the session
was called to order were Austen Cham
berlain, secretary for India, and Lord
Robert Cecil, minister of blockade.
Commons was later declared adjourn
ed until Thursday without a vote on
the adjournment. Irish members vainly
protested this course.
David Lloyd-George, minister of war,
who is regarded as the man behind tho
present cabinet crisis, did not put in an
appearance in commons during tho en
tire session today- His absence was re
garded as indicative that he will not
reappear until a definite solution of tho
matter is evolved and announced.
Asqutth as a Slavs.
Whether the cabinet crisis has been
definwitely pasesd was still uncertain
today but there were indications that
Premier Asquith was maintaining his
reputation aa one of the greatest politi
cal "placaters" in British history.
The best information today was that
David Lloyd-George, minister of war,
did not resign his place, aa rumored
Sunday nor did he actually threaten
to step down. But he did firmly ex
press hia belief in the absolute neces
sity of a small, compact council with
full authority to conduct the war. Ap
parently Asquith acceded in this be
lief. It was circumstantially reported to
day that the unionist cabinet members
had advised the premier to resign, inti
mating if he did not take this step tho
whole unionist representation in the
cabinet 10 of the 23 members would.
The nature of Asquith 's reply was not
revealed, but it is understood the un
ionists have now decided to remain. .

attribute a place on the new "war coun

Asquith wus supposed to be scheduled
for a conference with King George to
day und was expected later in commons
to make a formal statement revealing
the situation. All tho specific infor
mation London had on which to base
its reports was the formal statement of
yesterday that the prime minister,
"with a view to tho most effective,
prosecution of the war, had decided to
advise hia majesty, tho king, to consent
to the re construction of the government."
Just "Considering It"
London, Dec. 4. Great Britain and
her allies are considering what immedi
ate steps are to bo taken in connection
with the Greek situation, Lord Robert
Cecil announced in commons this aft
ernoon. He characterised the situation
there as extremely grave, following
"the most treacherous and unprovoked
attack on the nllics Friday."
"Responsibility for this," he added,
"rests upon tho king and the Greek
Early in today's session of the house,
of commons, hen the cabinet crisis
was uppermost in the minds of ques
tioners of the government's representa
tives, Lord Cecil was asked whether
he could assure the house, no matter
what decision was arrived at on the
cabinet, that the present Greek dynasty
would be continued." The minister of
blockado mado no immediate reply.
Later he said Britain and her allies are
considering steps in the situation.
