LONDON, July 89. The Iatet and most

fixing August as the date upon which

The sinister rumor which have per

of probability which made even the mem

postponement of the coronation might be
necessitated. ' '
The apprehension that King Edward

the coronation ceremony has been greatly
lessened by the announcement that hi

COMBINE THE OIL INTERESTS
London Dally Mall Asserts the Three
Monster Companies Have Made
i an Agreement.
LONDON, July SO. In It Issue of this
morning the Dally Mall assert there 1
no longer any doubt that the three monster
oil interests of Rockefeller, Rothschild and
Nobel have entered Into a working agree
ment. "Thus," say the paper, "without any pub
licity the greatest trust the world ha
ever seen has sprung Into being."
This combination, says the paper, has
been hinted at In messages from Batoum
and Moecow and it has been more clearly
shown In the offers made to Russian oil
exporters by representatives of the Nobel
and Rothschild Interests for the absorp
tion of the whole of their output. The
exporters have been forbidden to sell
through the agencies of these Interests at
a price arranged by them or to fight the
combined forces of the three oil giants.
This offer was made openly and with the
idea of maintaining prices and It has been
refused, the Russian exporters preferring
to fight. It was doubtless this combine,
continue the Dally Mall, which Induced
the Russian government to issue Invita
tion to an anti-trust conference. Spokes
men of the anti-trust combine declare It
mean a- fight to the death and that the
Independent exporters cannot hope to win.

PITTSBURG, Pa., July 29. Six firemen In
jured, two eight-story buildings almoat com
pletely destroyed, a number of others
slightly damaged and a property loss esti
mated at $300,000 is the result of a fire on
Liberty street, which raged fiercely ,for
seven hours. The injured were:
William Dalzell, painfully burned about
face and hands.'
William Reese, painfully burned about the
face and hands.
Lieutenant D. Leech, hands burned and
C. Buckley, burned and cut about the
Daniel Gallagher, cut about head and
Joseph Grim, foot cut by ax.
About 1:30 o'clock thla morning flames
were discovered Issuing from the building
at 919 Liberty street, occupied by the De-
Noon Bros.' Paint and Varnish company.
Owing to the combustible nature of the
stock the fire spread rapidly and soon the
adjoining building, occupied by Stewart
Bros., dealers In rubber goods, was alao in
As the fire spread there were frequent ex
plosion and about o'clock, when the
flames appeared to be succumbing to the ef
forts of the firemen, there was an explosion
that shook the building and shot the flames
far out over Liberty street. Five firemen
were caught and badly burned about the
hands and soorched about the face. They
were at once taken to the Homeopathic
hospital and later removed to their homes.
Their Injuries are not regarded a serious.
Meanwhile the moke and ,edor from the
burning rubber, mixed with paints, oil and
benslne, nearly stifled the firemen and made
it almost impossible for them to get at the
blaie, but they worked heroically and about
8 o'clock this morning had the flame under
control. Both building were gutted and S.
Ewart'a wholesale grocery, adjoining on the
east, was badly damaged. Speer A Hollar's
furniture store, A. C. Ellis, hat dealer, and
J. J. Porter, millinery supplies, on Pennsyl
vania avenue, suffered considerably by
smoke and water.
The origin of the fire has not been de
termined. The loss is about two-thirds cov
ered by insurance.
A revised estimate of losses tonight
places the total at 1818,600, distributed as
Stewart Bros., $176,000; Denoon Bros.,
$102,000; King estate, which own the
buildings, $16,000; Ewart A Sons, adjoin

CHAMBERLAIN IN THE MUSE
First Appearance of Colonial locTstarj
Binoe His Accident
TALKS OF AFFAIRS IN SOUTH AFRICA
ays Government Will Carry Out All
Promises Made to the Boers,
but Will Take Its Time
In Doing So. I
LONDON. July 29. Colonial Secretary
Chamberlain appeared In the House of
Commons thla afternoon for the first time
since hla recent accident.
He wa greeted with hearty- cheering and
later he was wermly congratulated by Sir
Henry Campbell Bannerman, liberal leader
In the house. . 1
Mr. Chamberlain's sppearance In the
House of Commons today was marked by
speech which won tbe applause
even ot such opponents as Henry La-
boucher. Mr. Chamberlain dealt com
prehensively with the past and future of
South Africa. "We have no Intention," he
declared, "that the Boers should break
with their old traditions. We desire that
they should preserve all the characteristic
of their race and hope they will shake
banda with us, thus securing prosperity
In South Africa under the flag which pro
tects different races and dlffeernt re
ligions." That sentiment wa tbe keynote of the
Dealing with the much discussed labor
question, Mr. Chamberlain said he believed
every Inducement to labor should be held
out to the blacks, but no scheme of com
pulsory labor would receive the slightest
government support. . There is no inten
tion of packing the country with Brit
ishers, but so much Transvaal land was
lying Idle that the colonte could only
be made a great corn producing factor by
bringing In British settlers.
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman supple
mented his Congratulation by asking for
Information of the colonial conference.
He expressed the hope that lenient treat
ment would be extended to the Boer In
South Africa. Mr. Chamberlain replied that
the1 one spirit animating the members of
the conference was the desire to draw
closer together the constituent parts of
the empire, and hs thought It safe to say
that the conference bad made Important
progress toward a perfect union, to which
he himself looked forward.
Regarding South Africa, Lord Mllner, the
high commissioner, had telegraphed spon
taneously that he did not think further
legislation necessary to make the banish
ment proclamation effective. The gov
ernment, however, reserved to Itself the
important right In the new colonies to
refuse to allow the return or to keep watch
over persons who showed themselves Inimi
cal to good order and peace. "We are not
going to allow ths result of ths war to be
undermined," said Mr, . Chamberlain, "by
Intrigues carried on by nominal constitu
Status of South Africa.
Regarding ths future status of South
Africa th colonial secretary said the im
perial government had established a crown
colony in ths strictest sense. .The next step
would be to add a Dominated official ele
ment. Thereafter there would be an elected
official element. Nothing but circumstances
and time would separate the new colonics
from self-government, the ultimate goal of
their ambition. That consummation would
.not be delayed, If for no other reason, be
cause It might relieve the government of
the tremendous burden ofresponsib!llty In
volved In the present situation, but all must
understand that the government would not
be rushed or pushed into any action which
circumstances did not warrant.
The speaker said he was one of those op
timistic enough to believe that the new
colonies would reach the ultimate goal of
their ambition much sooner than many per
son now thought possible. So far aa the
government was concerned, the surrender
promises would be kept in spirit as well as
In letter. The government, he said, was
bound, both by honor and interest, to this
There remained many question to be
dealt with; a new tariff must be arranged,
Involving Intricate question concerning
which exports must be consulted, and the
taxation of mine must be settled, but he
wished to say nothing would be done to
punish owner of mine, aa had been sug
gested In tnany quarters. The government
would do nothing to interfere with a quick
revival of development of ths country.
Subject to that consideration, Mr. Cham
berlaln continued, no man waa more anx
lou than he to recover some considerable
part of the cost of the war from South
Africa. -He thought It would be perfectly
fair to lay a fair part of tbe cost ot the
war on the principal industries of the
Transvaal, but what amount It was too
so6n to say.
Mr. Chamberlain's speech evoked crit
icism of tbe financial features of tha policy
outlined for South Africa from Sir William
Vernon Harcourt, James Bryce and others,
Mr. Byrce said he hoped the national scout
would not be used as police, but Mr. Cham
berlain said he could not see why they
should not be so employed, as he believed
they would make admirable civil guards.
Mr. Chamberlain also said he hoped the
royal Judicial commission going out to
South Africa would exercise tbe king's
clemency in view ot tbe large number of
sentence Imposed during tbe war.

BERLIN. July ' 29. Ths mrriit f
Privy Councilor Loehnig to the daughter
oi a former sergeant In the German armv
has caused Herr Loehnig' retirement from
tne chief directorship of taxes for ths
province of Posen.
Herr Loehnig. who wa also flnsnce
councilor and who was a man of wealth.
has been circulating a pamphlet among hi
friend explaining his acceptance of a pen
sion July 1, at the Instance of Herr von
Rhelraban, the Prussian minister of
finance. The publication of this Damnhlet
in today' papers has caused considerable
comment, both socially and politically, be
cause Herr Loehnig, as a high official, has
had knowledge of the Prussian administra
tion of Posen and disapproved of several
features of the ministry's Polish policy. '
in this policy Herr Loehnig relates thst
after an Interchange of communications
between Berlin and the highest admlnls- :
trattve officials of the province of Posen
the Ober president of Posen told blm hs
bad nothing to say against his flsnce, but
that It was impossible for him to consent
to the marriage of one of the highest offi
cials of the province with a daughter of
an ex-sergeant, that it was as though the
colonel of a regiment proposed to do such
a thing. A ministerial councilor or a su
perior government councilor might pos
sibly marry a sergeant's daughter, but a
privy and finance ' councilor could not.
The Ober president said also that ths
commanding general and the police presi
dent shared his views on the matter.

Herr Loehnig to retire, which he did. Herr
Loehnig affirms thst his opinion in the
matter of the ministry' Polish policy had
nothing to do with his retirement from
office, but notwithstanding this It 1 be
lieved the opinions did havs something to
ao wun tne councilor s retirement.
Herr Loehnig affirms that most of the
Prussian province-of Posen condemns ths
government poucy towarq tne poles, pros
ecution of Polish newspaper, and the sur
veillance of Polish societies. Herr Loeh
nig, although favoring measure to Ger
manize Poland, 1 of the opinion that this
should be carried out less ostentatiously.

of class insolence.
