MINISTRY RESPONSIBLE TO PAR

THE EMPEROR IS IN CONTROL
Advance Liberals Do Not Anticipate
Mush of Importance From the
Berlin. The debate in the Reichstag
on the' motions Introduced by the so
cialists and radicals, demanding
changes in the constitution, with the
object of making the, chancellor and
ministers responsible to Parliament,
'and giving the sole power to the
Reichstag to declare war, will prob
ably begin on December 2. The de
bate is expected to last one day, or
two days at the most
The advanced liberals, whose aim is
to convert the German political system
Into a government responsible to Par
liament, do not anticipate much from
the present Reichstag because in the
days when feeling ran the highest the
party leaders would not agree to urge
even the simplest resolution of cen
sure or Inquiry. The radicals and so
cialists count upon making their first:
great campaign in the elections of!
1912, unless the house is dissolved
The power of the associated mon
archies forming the German empire is
(entrenched in two principal ways in
the Bundesrath, which has equal legis
lative powers with the Reichstag, and
in the conservative and clerical par
ties, which have, under the ancient
system of the Reichstag electoral dis
tricts, the means for holding the ma
jority in that body by about one-third
the votes cast
The Bundesrath, which consists of
fifty-eight members appointed by the
sovereigns of the states qf Germany,
except one each from Hamburg, Bre
men and Lubeck, stands directly
across the path of a government re
sponsible to the elected represent
atives of the people. The kings, grand
ydukes and princes who rule the fed
erated states, also through ministers
'responsible to them alone, while will
ing to unite in limiting the freedom of
initiative and speech on the part of
the king of Prussia as emperor, are
one with him in their determination
to resist representative government.
Fourteen votes in the Bundesrath
against any amendment to the consti
tution will suffice for its rejection. The
emperor, as king of Prussia, nominates
seventeen of the members and, as a
consequence, there is no possible
chance for the adoption of an amend
ment without his consent
v Carnegie on the Tariff
New York. A notable article from"
Andrew Carnegie dealing with the
(tariff, will appear In the fourthcoming
December number of the Century Mag
azine. The iron master takes the po
sition that "infant industries" no
longer need protection; and the steel
and other industries have now grown
beyond the need of tariff protection;
that duties on luxuries used by the
rich should be maintained, but that
those on manufactured articles should
be reduced greatly, or abolished en
tirely, when no longer needed.
Stock Deal Halts.
New York. Dealings in stocks last
week contracted to a daily average of
but little more than 1,000,000 shares
at the New York Stock exchange, com
pared with the average of upwards of
1,500,000 shares a day for the week
preceding. Coupled with this diminu
tion in the activity of the market there
appears to grow up a degree of uncer
tainty in the price movement in con
trast with the uniformly strong up
ward movement which had prevailed
since the presidential elections.

Lincoln Journal, is supposed to be di
viding his time between consideration
of the proposed extra session of the
legislature and the appointment of'
four judges of the supreme couil Be
tween times he holds hearings for
convicts who desire pardons and per
forms endless routine work in his of
fice. The meeting of the supreme court
brought to Lincoln a host of attorneys,
and there was much whispering about
the corridors of the state house where
the lawyers were gathered. The ap
proaching meeting of the state bar as
sociation which will recommend four
men for governor's consideration adds
to the interest of the situation. Wheth
er or not the governor will name two
democrats and two republicans is also
a matter that interests every appli
cant for appointment. Nineteen names
are already before the governor for
his consideration and the state bar as
sociation may add some to this nam-,
It is said by persons in authority 1
that the three members of the su
preme court, if requested to give their
opinion, will ask the governor to ap
point two democrats and two republic
ans. What the bar association, will do
will not be known till the membership
expresses a view. Governor Sheldon
has never promised to appoint two f
the 'judges from the democratic party,
but he promised to give the matter
consideration and use his sense of
justice. Among the nineteen names al
ready before him are those of J. .1.
Sullivan and Judge B. F. Good of Wa
hoo, both democrats. Judge Sullivan
has had long experience on the su
preme bench and is believed to have a
good show for appointment. Judge
Good has served nine years on (he
district bench. Both republican and
democratic attorneys of his district
and all over the state have called on
Governor Sheldon in behalf of Judge
Good. Another democrat who is ex
pected to make a strong showing in
the way of endorsements is George I..
Loomls of Fremont. The republican
candidates are numerous. Judge Frost
of Lancaster Is being urged by attor
neys. Judge Fawcett and Judge
Duffle of Omaha are considered strong
candidates and Commissioner Root of
Cass and Judge S. H. Sedgwick of
York, formerly judge of the supreme
court, are placed in the leading class.
The Case of Senator Ashton.
Senator Ashton of Hall county, de
feated for congress in the Fifth dis-I
trict by twenty votes, called at the
state house to examine the official re
turns. He has not yet decided con
cerning an election contest before
congress. He objects, however, to the
counting of several votes for his op
ponent when the voter merely wrote
the word "Taft" and' a cross in the
blank between the word "republican"
and the circle at the top of the ballot.
He contends that these votes should
be counted for republican electors.
Shallenberger Spent $750.
How much does it cost to run for
governor in Nebraska? Those con
templating such a step may consult
the sworn statement of Ashton C.
Shallenberger. the democratic candi
date who won at the recent election.
He states that he expended $752.90. .

So far as known Governor Sheldon
has no appointments to make before
he retires except four judges of the
supreme court and one member of
the state board of education and per
haps one or two members of minor
boards, such as advisory boards for

Abject to Raise in Salaries.
Modern Woodmen of Nebraska are
being interested to take one side or
the other in the matter of the action
of the head camp in raising the salary
of the head officers. Recently there
was circulated in Lincoln copies of the
True Woodman, which has been
started to knock on Head Consul Tal
bot and others fcr what the paper de
signates as the "salary grab." The
publication contains a letter from ts
editor to Mr. Talbot regarding the ac
tion of the head camp and the reply by
Mr. Talbot thereto.
Denison Case Reversed.
The judgment for $7,500 obtained
by Thomas Dennison against the Daily
News Publishing company of Omaha
on account of alleged libel was re
versed in the supreme court and was
remanded to the lower court for a new
trial. The action arose from the fact
that the Omaha Daily News published
an address made at a mass meeting
by Elmer E. Thomas, in which a per
son whose name was net given was
accused of throwing a bomb or hiring
some one to throw it for tne purpose
of wrecking the home of Mr. Thomas.
