CLEVELAND. O.. Dee. 20. The fifty
fourth annual dinner of the Cleveland
Chamber of Commerce held tonight wai at
' tended by several distinguished visitors.
The guests of honor were Governor Nash,
Adjutant General Corbln, Oeneral 8. M. B.
Young, General A. R. Chaffee, Joseph O.
Jlllburn of Buffalo and Senator Hanna.
These occupied the platform table at which
also Hat the mayor, Tom L. Johnson, Major
Garretson and others.
The first speaker was Governor Nash,
who rtf erred to the growth of Ohio, and
especially the city of Cleveland.
When Ohio Joined the union, he said,
there were but three cities, Marietta, Chll
Irothe'and Cincinnati. The population then
was 42,000. After fifty years the census
showed nineteen cities with more than

He said. In part:
We have much that Is satisfactory. Our
ofllcers and men are fit the best sober,
brave and Intelligent. We are fortunate In
having a permanent military establishment
of volunteers. What Is known as the rwj
ular army la In the highest eenso a volun
teer army, every officer and man taking
service of his own motion. Hut perfection
of organization Is demanded a harmonious
and Intelligent method of co-ordination and
direction. For a century we have nursed
the hope that radical defects would adjust
themselves. . Durlns; the past century we
have had many statutes aiming to promote
thn efficiency of the army, and enacted
w.'h Rood Intent. But they have as a rule
rei ited to aome particular department and
him always with Intelligent relation to what
h: ve gone before.
That these unhappy conditions obtain Is
largely dun to the fact that no one has
heretofore offered a satisfactory solution.
Secretary Root now presents one, recom
mending that a board of military experts
shall he created, at the heed of which
there shall be an officer of highest rank,
who shall be the chief military officer of
the War department, and to be known ae
the chief of staff.
Mr. Boot's plan Is not the German or
French plan, or that existing In any for
eign army. While he may have gained
valuable suggestions by a close study of
the organization of foreign armies, his
cheme Is wholly American and conceived
cm the lines and spirit of our government;
and la In close touch with the constitution.
It should be accepted In the spirit It Is of
fered, and there Is no question that it will
be, If the Intelligent consideration of the
country is given to It.
Commerce Leads Army.
Major General Young spoke of "The, Army
and Commerce," saying in part:
A nation cannot be great nnd enjoy pros
perity except for a limited time without
commerce and an efficient military force.
Kach Is dependent upon the other, and as
one prospers so will the other, or eventually
the nation to whom they pertain will cease
to exist. Thia Is especially true of our own
republic. I use the term "military force"
In Its broad sense. Including the army and
navy and all that Is required to make them
If the military force Is Inadequate to in
spire a feeling of confidence among com
mercial men that their Interests will bo
protected, the commerce will not Increase
and that which may have been established
will dip appear.
People may differ In their views as to the
advisability of either purchasing or holding
the Philippine Inlands, but no reasonable
person can doubt that the predominating
reason for buying them was one 'of hu
manity and a desire to free them from the
yoke they' Were bearing, Just as we did In
Cuba I believe that a large majority of
the Filipino people who aro capable of
understanding the situation rejoice that
We purchased the islands.
To obtain the trade of China wo will
have a long and hard struggle with the na
tions , of i Kurope. We have obtained a
strong point of advantage by getting the
goodwill of the Chinese people by our wise
and humano diplomacy, but the advantage
that overshadows all others Is the posses
sion of the Philippines. The greatest value
lies In their strategic position, both from a
military and commercial standpoint, which
Is favorable to gaining and keeping the con
trol of the commerce of Asia. Th time Is
coming when the Philippines will be the
gateway through which will pass the goods
of our great manufacturing establishments
on their way to the Orient. But however
advantageous the possession of the Philip
pines may be from a commerclnl point of
view they will be a source of national
weaknees unless put In a proper state of
defence and protected by a sufficiently large
aimy and navy.
Quality and price go a long way toward
fixing the hounds of commerce, but there
can be no permanency to a great commerce
for which different nations are competing
that Is not backed up by a large and ade
quate military force. This Is especially
true of Oriental commerce. If we wish to
gain the supremacy In commerce In the
east ws must maintain such a military
force (army and navy) In the Philippine
lslnnds that It can act instantly and ef
fectually at any point In the Orient, and
that fact muat he well known and under
stood by ajl Oriental peoples. The larger
and mbre efficient- the force, and the more
widely Its strength and efficiency are
known, the kinger will the Inevitable con
flict of arms be delayed. No one can fore
tell when It will come, nor what will be the
pretended or real cause, but the time will
come when we will have to fight to main
tain the supremacy of our commerce.

(Copyright. 1902, by Press Publishing Co.)
TAPIS. Dec. 20. (New York World Ca
blegram Special Telegram.) The Fpanlsh
police are entitled to all the credit of the
arrest of the Humberts and to the whole of
the $5,000 reward offered by the French
government. The opinion prevails In the
best Informed quarters here that the French
authorities knew the Humberts' hiding
rlace, but did not wish to arrest them lest
documents they undoubtedly possessed re
veal scandals like those of the Panama
affair, which shook the republic to Its foun
dations. So many false alarms have been sprung
upon the French public concerning the
Humberts that when the news that they
had been arrested In Madrid reached Paris
this afternoon people smiled Incredulously,
saying, "We've heard that story before."
When the first intelligence arrived at the
Palalse de Justice (central courthouse)
there was a great commotion.
"Is it true?" was the question on every
Up. Grave Judges were almost as much ex
cited as fledgling barristers. A noteworthy
coincidence is the return to Paris yester
day of ex-Premier Waldeck Rousseau.
When he was leaving Rome for France he
is reported to have said: "I am eager to
return to Paris, for I am Already one day
He was the only man In France who saw
through the Humberts before they fled snd
he did not hesitate to pronounce their
"heritage" as the biggest swindle of the
century. He knows more about the Hum
bert affair than any other living man, and
it may be taken for granted that bis sud
den appearance In Paris on the evening of
the arrest of the famous swindlers was
something more than a mere coincidence.
Get Entire Family.
MADRffe, Dec. 20. Madam Humbert and
other members of the Humbert family and
Madam d'Aurlgnac, the sister-in-law of
Madam Humbert, who became notorious In
connection with the great safe frauds In
Paris, have been arrested at a hotel here.
They had been in Madrid since May 9.
Some time yesterday d'Aurlgnac was seen
to enter the building, and the house was
surrounded. After some difficulty the police
were admitted and arrested the long sought
for defaulters. The prisoners protested
that they were victims of Infamous pro
ceedings. They threatened to get even with
certain persons in France and said they
had come to Madrid direct from Paris.
Mile. Eva became hysterical and Mme.
Humbert clasped Marie d'Aurlgnac and her
daughter in he arms, pleading with the
police "for the love of Ood not to separate
me from my daughter."
The police suspect the Humberts of hav
ing disposed of Important papers in the
lavatories while delaying the entry of the
officers. The family tried to escape by the
windows, but failed, as the. house was sur
rounded. The prisoners maintain they are Inno
cent, declare they themselves have been
victimized, and say they desire to return
to France 'and defend themselves against
SOCIAL CHAT J)F CHRISTMAS
Children of the American Set to Have
Gora-eous Christmas Tree at
(Copyright, 1902, by Press rubllshlng Co.)
LONDON, Dee. 20. (New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram.) An Ameri
can children's Christmas party was given
Thursday by Mrs. Chauneeys. assisted by
her sister. Lady Newborough. It was at
Mrs. Chauneeys' house in Mayfalr and for
the little friends of Mrs. Chauneeys' daugh
ter, Alice. The ball room was a mass of
flowers all frosted over. In the center stood
a Christmas tree of gigantic size, laden
with all sorts of Parisian toys of the most
expensive description. Perched on the top
most branch was Polichlnelle In white satin.
The hostess adorned this colossal tree with
her own bands. The distribution of its
tempting fruit also was an arduous task.
The two sisters looked singularly alike as
they stood together removing the treas
ures for the crowd of little people bidden
to the feast.
The particular feature of entertainment
was a play given by two wonderfully clever
French girls of 8 and 9 years, respectively.
Mrs. Ronalds recently brought them out at
one of her Sunday muslcalea. They makf
up as Bernhardt and Rejane, whose differ
ent styles of acting they mimic to perfec
tion. The little guests included the children of
the marchioness of Dufferln, the countess
of Essex, the countess of Craven, Lads
Naylor Leyland, Lady Algernon Gordca
Lennox and numerous others.
Miss Gladys Deacon, having ended her
vlBit with Lord and Lady Clifford of Chud
lelgh at Clarldges, went to Paris, where
her mother and slaters are living on Rue
Goujon, but is coming back to England for
Christmas to spend the holidays with Prin
cess Henry of Plcss at the house of the
latter's parents, Newlands Mamor, where
a big shooting party will assemble for the
sporting beginning on Christmas evening.
There will be private theatricals In which
Miss Deacon will take the" leading part.
Sho is a fervent Catholle and a great fa
vorite among the old Catholic families here,
the most exclusive in the country, and al
ways exceedingly slow to admit a newcomer.
The Cliffords of Chudleigh are one of the
oldest and proudest families, dating back
to the conquest.
The pretty American girl is greatly In
terested, in an effort to raise funds for the
Catholic poor, but is somewhat puzzled
about how to do so. Her notion Is to give
private theatricals, a bazaar or a big sub
scription dance, but her broad-minded Ideas
are not shared by prominent Catholics, who
are the promoters of the charity and her
personal friends. They do not think It
would be the thing to use the fame of her
beauty and conquests as a drawing card,
and they object also to the co-operation of
msny leading society people who have shot
up Into position within recent years. How
ever, the preplexed beauty will soon launch
a rroject all her own and one which will
have the sanction of ell her friends and
mhich. under her name, is bound to bring
In tig returns.
While the young marchioness of Anglesey
has gone to Rome to take part In the
Christmas religious celebrations, being s
fervent Catholic, her husband, from whom
shs Is separated, is making elaborate prepa
rations to produce at his country house in
Wales a Christmas pantomlne la which he
will take the part of "Bonny Boy Blue." He
has transformed the private chapel of An
glesey castle Into "The Gaiety theater.'
His lordship Is content to play compare
tively minor parts, technically known as
"second boy" parts, but he gives special
distinction by ths daintiness and beauty of
his costumes and the magnificence of the
diamonds, pearls and gems of all kinds with
which his neck and limbs are loaded. The
part of "Bonny Boy Blue" Is not one of
great Importance te the story of "Bed Rid-
Ing Hoed." but it is understood that It will
give the marquis a chance to Introduce sev
eral songs and dances. Admission will be

LONDON, Dec. 20. (New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram.) The duke
of Marlborough recently asked King Ed
ward to change the name of the royal palace
Dow called Marlborough house, so that the
new palace which the duke Is building for
himself on Curzon street may have that
name. But after consulting mlth the prince
of Wales and with court officials, the king
decided tbat It might cause great con
fsslon If the name was changed. So the
duke has decided to call his new mansion
Blandford house, after his second title. . It
might far more fitly be called Vanderbllt
house, although the duke never loses an
opportunity of denying emphatically that
It Is in whole or In part a gift from his
father-in-law. Like most building opera
tions. It is said to be costing the duke
more than double the original estimate and
Is making a far heavier drain on his re
sources than he ever contemplated.

LONDON, Dec. 20. (New York World Ca

suit for divorce has coat all concerned close
on $1,000,000. Sir Charles Hartopp, who has
not a cent beyond the $3,000 a year allowed
him by Grand Duke Michael as his equerry,
la liable for $60,000. He said that a sub
scription has been privately started to help
him by the grand duke and the duke of
Devonshire. Lady Hartopp will have to pay
Mrs. Sand's costs, amounting to $4,500. The
Wilsons have come very indifferently out of
the circle and are furious at the failure to
obtain a decree against Hartopp. The Jury
took the view that there was nothing to
choose between the couple. Tho verdict
meets with universal approval.

METRIC SYSTEM IS IN FAVOR

(Copyright, 1902, by Press Publishing Co.)
PARIS, Dec. 20. (New York World Ca
blegram Special Telegram.) The action of
the American Chamber of Commerce in
Paris in recommending the adoption of
the metric system, has led to an agitation
among the Anglo-Saxon business element In
favor of the change. It is believed here
that England is only waiting on the United
States government to signify an intention
of adopting the metric system to Join in
the movement. The only opposition en
countered is among those engineers or
manufacturers whose establishments are run
on conservative principles and whom the
introducing of the metric system would
compel to overhaul their measure and ma

SOCIALISTS MAKE OBJECTIONS'
Fear Xew Reichstag- Rales Will Limit
Powers to Say What They
BERLIN, Dec. 20. The socialist mem
bers of the Reichstag held conferences dally
this week over the position in which the
party la placed hy the new rules. Since
the creation of Parliament they could say
anything In the house, as all utterances
were privileged and the lese majeste and
sedition paragraphs of the penal code were
not applicable to them. While those priv
ileges are not more Impaired, the oppor

new rules is limited. At the pleasure of
the majority it Is possible to Introduce

weakened, but they have not yet decided
on a policy to follow.
