to The Bee.) J. E. F. Fuller. M. P., In the
course of in Interview,' relating to Mr.
Redmond's assertion that' lie and his friends
could 'make "the government of Ireland a
Sheer Impossibility, and' It would be the
dtsjy'fcf the Irish party to make It so If It
was attempted', to be run cm the lines of
Iord rt(Vebeis dishonorable recantation of
bis pledges- ort home rule," said :
The "dishonorable recantation" referred
to la presumably to be found In Lord Rose
bery's speech at the City Liberal club. In
that speech he Is reported to have made
the two following contentions:
First That a possible liberal government
could not pass a measure of devolution In
Ireland without a further and pacific ap
peal to the constituencies.
ISecond That "dual government at the
heart of the empire" on the lines that now
obtain In Austria-Hungary and Norway
Bweden would be "dangerous." It Is not
easy to see wherein this pronouncement
any recantation, dishonorable or otherwise,
Is to he found, nor. I susnect. are there
many liberals who would deny either of
Lord Rosebory's propositions.
Put It Is well to call to mind .Mr. Red
mond's own attitude toward home rule. He
has had the last word on the subject. (In
February 11, 1898. he moved an amendment
to the address to the crown, of which the
following was the substantive proposal:
"That the demand for Irish self-govern-
ot an Independent Parliament, and an exo
rutlve responsible thereto, for all nff ilra
V distinctly Irish." In support of this prnpn-
V ell Ion he stated that "the plain truth Is
." that Irishmen todav hate English rule, and
f that they will never desist until they have
succeeded In rescuing their country rrom its
His amendmnt was seconded by J.
O'Kelly, M. P.. who, In the course of his
remarks, stated that "no concession of
local government can ever satisfy the Irish
ieoplo demand tor a national rariiameni.
f we cannot obtain what Is our right by
rotiment we will obtain It bv force."
1 There the matter stands. Mr. Redmond Is
i presumably not prepared for any dishonor
able recantation, and no one saks him to
. make one; but I venture to think that he
1 should be the last to accuse liberals of
i being "firmly rooted to the dishonor of
j foresworn pledges to Ireland" when his
I present policy, unless dishonorably re
canted, Is one which Mr. Gladstone himself
I would have been the first to oppose.
' ., Lord Arebury on situation.
L la an tutervlew, Lord Avebury's atten
tlon was called to Lord Roscbery's recent
declaration on home rule, and was asked,
after reading the letter's remarks.-If lie
(Lord Avebury) could see anything to pre
vent tree trade unionists, realising how
great were the dangers of Mr. Chamber
lain's policy, from supporting all liberal
candidate who were sound on the fiscal
question. His lordship replied:
In any great party there must be many
differences, and our present system Is not
well adapted to elicit the real opinion of
the country. This is the main reason which
has made some of us so strongly advocate
proportional representation. 1 was glad to
read Lord Rosebery's speech practloally
abandoning home rule, but his views have
not been adopted either by Lord Spencer
or by Sir Henry Campbell-Bannernian. As
regards the fiscal question, I take the pres
ent position to be this. Some great manu
facturers are In favor of protection because
they believe they would get higher nrices
for their products. On the other hand, our
leading economists ure almost all free
traders; so are. the great en-officials both
of the treasury and the Board of Trade;
nnd so, lastly, are the working men and
agricultural laoorers, wno tiunK, as 1 tie-
lleve rigniiy 1111111, intit pruiei-uon wuuiu
mean less employment, lower wages and
higher prices for the necessaries of life.
Mr. Balfour Is a free trader, though not, I
am afraid. In what w should consider the
true sense. Under the circumstances, how
ever I shall not believe, until I see it, that
his 'majesty's government will court al
most Inevitable defeat by going to the
country with a protectionist program.
Ashbourne on Devolution.
Lord Ashbourne, lord chancellor of Ire
land, addressing a large unloniat meeting
here, said, with regard to Ireland, that
jhhe greatest and noblest of their duties
ffiji was to maintain the union and to repudi
ate and contest all men nd measures that
threatened to Imperil the union. Lately
they had had Lord Dunraven's devolution
scheme, but the cry of universal indigna
tion with which It wns received showed
that Ita true meaning was seen Into. It
was a side and insidious attack on the
greatness of the Imperial Parliament and
the unity of the empire. What would be
the good of trying to bind the empire to
gether by stronger ties If at their doors,
undvr the cry of devolution delegation,
they sapped that unity of Purltament and
Us work. Efforts had been made to draw
the government Into some kind of com
plicity with that mischievous and Impossi
ble scheme, but they had signally failed.
Every minister had repudiated the scheme.
The opposition had to speak, but they did
not Ilka It, and It was hard to know what
they meant because Mr. Redmond, tho able
leader of the Irish nationalist party, was
not a man to tand any nonsense. Tie
would have no shilly-shallying, but plain
speaking and clear action, or he would
know the reason why. The unionlrts hmi
a leader whom they honored and trusted,
and they looked to the country to continue
to extend to Mr. Balfour's givtrnnient con
fUlence und support.

In the prent state of legislation the gov
ernment could not take up the bill. He
suggested, however, that a conference
should be held between the deputation and
the Scottish department, which might lead
to satisfactory results. He viewed the pro
posals of the bill with the most friendly
eye and approved of it as far as he could
officially, but there were points of a con
tentious character, and these might possi
bly be smoothed over and put Into a form
In which the department might be able to
support the bill.

that Norway nnd Sweden should be united
as two 'free and Independent' kingdoms
under one sovereign. There Is nothing
whatever either In the Norwegian or Swed
ish 'Grundlov' of tho nature of a treaty or
union; they appertain only to each country
separately, and this view has also been ac
cepted and recognised by the Swedish gov
ernment (April 17, 1885). Everything that
was to concern the countries jointly was
embodied In a separate special treaty the
'Rigsakt' of August 6, 1815. This must be
carefully borne In mind If we are to get a
Just verdict on the present issue the ap
pointment of our own separate consuls.
The Rigsakt Itself contains not a word
about consuls at all, and the two countries
are therefore not bound by treaties to have
them in common; they are not bound either
legally or morally to a partnership in the
"On the other hand the Norwegian
'Grundlov' deals with the consul question,
and the clause referring to consuls stands
unaltered In the form originally agreed
upon at the Eidsvold assembly, before the

is quite practicable without danger to the
present unity in foreign affairs. Both
Swedish and Norwegian governments, as
well as the crown, have later concurred irf
that pronouncement and have agreed to
the principle recommended as practicable.
It Is therefore certain that the Swedish

an essential and inevitable result of the

BALKAN AFFAIRS IN BAD WAY
Dlatlart Increase la Felt la the Ten
sion Between Turkey and
SOFIA. April . (Special Cablegram to
The Bee) There has been of Isle a dis
tinct increase In the tension between Tur
key and Bulgaria and a hated controversy
is In progress. The ministerial Journal,
Nov Vek, openly charges Turkey with the
Intention of crushing the Bulgarian ele
ment In Macedonia and declare that
provocative measures have been adopted
by the military and civil authorities with
However this may be, the military pro
gram adopted by the Turkish authorities
in Macedonia would appear to have been
attended with some success, as reports
come from various quarters of the annihi
lation of Bulgarian bands. Annihilation
seems to be the approved method of pro
cedure, as In the more recent accounts of
the destruction of the bands there Is no
mention of prisoners. This success, how
ever, is merely temporary, for fresh bands
are taking the place of those which have
perished, while the vexatious measures put
In force against the rural population, the
perquisitions, the arrests, the curfew sys
tem, the closing of churches and schools
and the continual Interference with Indi
vidual liberty will sooner or later drive
the peasants to desperation and precipitate
an Insurrectionary movement.
Meanwhile the activity of Greek and
Servian bands is on the Increase and the
situation dally Is growing worse, largely
owing to the conduct of the authorities,
who frequently foment the religious and
racial feuds of the Christians. Owing to
their connivance and benevolent neutrality
the Greek bands enjoy practical immunity
in certain districts, and savage reprisals
have followed on the part of the Bul
garians. The only satisfactory feature In
the situation is stated to be the gendarm
erie, against which there are now no com
plaints on the part of tho population, but
the powers of the foreign officers are lim
ited and their activity encounters a certain
amount of tacit opposition on the part of
the Mohammedan officials. The present
partial reforms cannot bring about any
real change In the stsie of affairs, and no
Improvement need be expected until
European supervision Is extended to all
branches of the administration.

MANCHESTER, April 15.-(Speclal Cable

Principality of Detmold Agitated
Over Charge Against Promi

BERLIN. April 15. fSpeclal Cablegram
to The Bee.) The arrest of Privy
Councillor von Kratcht and his wife on the
charge of slander In the principality of
Detmold has developed one of the most re
markable cases of Its kind In Germany.
About 1(97 the defendant's father received
a large number. o( anonymous letters con

women well known In the district. The de

Finally von Kiacht himself was accused
of having written them. A court, how
ever, decided In his favor. In 1900 the de
fendant was married and the anonymous
letters ceased. Von Kracht's father died
In 1903, leaving his son a great fortune.
The works of the anonymous slanderer
were almost forgotten, when suddenly. In
191, letters were again showered on all
the leading families of the principality.
As the result of the researches of detec
tives an order to examine von Kracht's
house was obtained, and Imprints were
found on his blotting paper which corre

He was accordingly arrested, but the
public astonishment was even greater
when, while von Kracht was In prison, the
letters still continued. He was thereupon
released on 130,0(0 bail and the Berlin po

After weeks of research they arrested
Frau von Kracht as the principal offender,
and she and her nusbnnd now stand ac

of the most scandalous nature.

this famous outfitting point for the hunt

two hours for official mall that had been
sent to Redstone, where it had been In
tended that the seat of government shoult
be established while the president was
away in the mountains hunting bear, bob
coats and other game.
The time here was pleasantly occupied.
The president shook hands with a majority
of tho 400 citizens of the village after he
had been Introduced by George H. Norris,
mayor ot New Castle, who announces on
his card that he does blacksmlthing nnd
wagon making. The party was photo
graphed, the president made a brief ad
dress, shook hands with the train crew
and viewed the specially decorated engine
that drew his train from Colorado Springs.
The run to this village was very pleas
ant. Huge bonfires lighted the way dunt.g
the night nnd the Inhabitants of the towns
enroute stayed up until far Into the morn
ing to cheer the president as he passed
through. Getting up early the party had
their breakfast of fresh mountain trout on
the train and with curtains raised viewed
the magnificent scenery along the route of
the Colorado Midland.

When the train pulled Into New Castle
the president, dressed In his shooting
clothes of heavy tan duck, greeted the peo

wildly. After the Bpeech was made and the
little conventloalitles had been observed,
the president gave personal supervision to
his hunting outfit. He unsheathed his knife
and felt it edge, unllmbered his gun and
saw that it was in fine working order and
looked over the horse that had been se

imal is white, weighing about l.loo pounds
and is about fourlen and a half hands

today did not materialize. It had been
arranged to form a procession led by the
Miners' Brass baud, a caged bear and

pageant was to pass through the village
streets and Into the hills, where the bear
was to be turned loose and given a start
of thirty minutes. The State Humane so
ciety broke up the plans on. the ground
that the bear might return to the village
and carry off some children.

was looked after and every switch was
spiked. At every bridge and trestle there
was a man on guard, and often General
Manager George W. Vallery had as many
as a dozen men In a single mile. Where the
road ran along the edge of precipices, rock
slides are frequent.

There was no disposition on the part of
the saloon keepers to resist the enforce
ment of the Sunday closing law. The edict
Issued by Excise Commissioner Melvihill
that all saloons and cafes must close
promptly at midnight Saturday and remain
closed until Monday morning, under pen
alty of forfeiting their licenses, caused
much comment for the last week, but its
provisions were rigidly adhered to by pro
prietors of saloons, aa far as the closing
order is concerned.
In many cases persons were not per
mitted to finish drinking beverages that
had been purchased previous to tho hour
of midnight, but the lights were extln
gtished and the patrons requested to elo
pcii t at once.
Kruit stands, news stands and other all
night vendors were as prompt as the
saloon nun In observing the Sunday closing
order, It having been announced that tho
"old blue laws" were to be strictly en
forced. The stroke of midnight was the
signal for shutters to be placed hastily
about the exposed stands and all goods
thnt could be construed to be "exhibited
for Bale" were covered.

Some of the papers, notably tho Novo

The Novoe Vremya says that the vessels

The paper takes particular exception to
the fact that the British cruiser Iphlgenlu

LONDON, April 10. A telegram from
Singapore, Straits Settlements, was received
hero today announcing that thu Peninsula,
& Oriental bteumsliip company's steamer
Marmora sighted five Russian battleships
April 3 in lutllude 8 direug fcuuth and
longitude ill! degrees cast, steering for thu
Htiults of Suiula. The disputed has no
present significance. The fact that th
Marmora, which wa bound to London
from Sydney, N. S. W sighted the Russian
squadron was reported early In the muntlt
from Colombo, Ceylon. Tho news appar
ently has now reached Singapore through
outgoing steamers. The chief Interest In
the dispatch lies in its giving the exact
location of the squadron, indicating that It
steered almost due eust from Madagascar,
it is presumed hero, with the object of
creating tho Impression that Rojestvensky
intended to traverse the Straits of Sunda
and draw away the Japanese from tho
Malacca straits, through which ha ulti
