BERLIN. July 22. (Special Cablegram H
Th Bee.) The Isolation' of Germany In the
foreign affairs of the world la Just be
ginning to be understood here. As a Ger
man sociallstwhose name la a household
word, has 'tphrascd it, "Our position la
one of gloomy grandeur."
i Bvt now that the Impression "has gone
forth that the kaiser really doea not want
war, that he would prefer peace, thing
ore not as bad as they have been, not
as had as they might be. It wilt be a long
time yet before .an understanding la likely
to be arrived at, and it will bo longer atili
before the profoundly unfavorable impres
sion produced by the universally con
demned proceedings of Germany has any
chance tA being effaced, .
But much that has been charged against
Germany ought never to have been charged
up against it at all. On the principle of
making hay while the sun shines, a number
of German aspirations have been brought
forward which have little or nothing to do
with Morocco, and which apparently could
not hitherto obtain a hearing owing to
the extremely reserved attitude of the
French government towards Germany dur
lng the last years of M. Delcasse's tenure
of office. One of these German wishes ia
concerned with the commercial policy pur
sued in the French colonlea and partlcu
larly in Tunis. Franco-German commercial
relations are based upon the most favored
nation clause of the treaty of Frankfurt,
but when that treaty was concluded the
Importance of colonial trade was not' fore
seen. There Is now a desire on the Ger
man side to obtain a modification of the
French piactice, which has the effect of
exeljdlng German and other foreign trade
from Imnortant markets like those of
Tunis. The view is expressed If a colonial
agreement could be concluded between
France and Germany it would be easier for
the two governments to combat with suc
cess the British policy of colonial pref
Would Iarnore F.najland.
Another question which semi-official ex
ponents of German intentions like Prof.
Sehlc.mnnn are ventilating Is the position
of neutrals on the seas, and the definition
of contraband of war. In accordance with
, the whole trend of German policy there is ,
a desire to have thla question oiscussea
and decided without any particular regard
to the views of England.
It remains to be seen whether the con
ference will really prove a success. At
present the deml-seml officials are pursuing
the prellmlniry device of advocating the
blxarre conception of a triple alliance be
tween Germany, France and England,
which in itself Is a chimera, and is .about
as far from the real objects of German
policy as anything well could be.
The negotiations that are now taking
place In Paris between the French and the
German governments with reference to the
settlement of affairs In Morocco really )s
having the effect of calling attention not
only to the lonely position of Germany, but
the commanding position which recent
events bave placed In the hands of the
The defeat of the Russian by the Japa
nese has practically destroyed the useful
ness to the French of their alliance with
Russia and has untied Germany's hands by
taking a way the possibility of an invasion
of her eastern frontiers should she at any
time embark upon another war with
Not unreasonably th Berlin government
reckoned without King I'M ward. The "en
tente cordlale", to some extent robbed the
kaiser of the advantage that the weaken
ing of Russia gave him. But the events
that have happened have shown that the
, statesmanship at Berlin in some ways has
been sufficient to take advantuge of the
undoubted mistakes of M. Delcaase and to
get over this apparent setback.
There Is no doubt but that M. Delcasse
made a great tactical mistake In .tot ad
vising the German government af the
Anglo-French arrangement as far as it con
cerned Morocco, and In obtaining, as ha
certainly would . have done, German ac
quiescence In Its clauses.
Strengthens Gtraua Prestige.
-'Although for many reasons there is little
probability of anything like war when
things come to a final conclusion, still the
French government has had at the eleventh
hour to admit the right of the German gov
ernment to be consulted. This might not
be so bad bo far as the two nations are
concerned, but th Moors know they have
bad to do this.
It is now quits generally believed that
all that Germany ever Intended to do was
to bring about the strengthening of Ger-
uuu prestige in Morocco and a consequent
weakening of the prestige of both France
aud England. It haa at the same time had
th fuvtber effect of carrying forward one
of th kaiser's pet schemes by increasing
his Influence among the Mahometan powers.
The fear of Germany., which Is always
present In France, which Is common In
nearly all of the countries on the con
tinent of Europe, which Is daily becoming
stronger tn England and which exists even
In th United States, la undoubtedly based
on tha fact that at the present time Oer.

BIRMINGHAM, July 22. (Special Cable
gram to The Bee.) In the presence of about
lirf) members of Parliament, representatives
of foreign governments, expert engineers
and chemists, distinguished sportsmen,
a series of experiments were made with
cordite and axite at the works of Kynocli
(limited). Mr. Arthur Chamberlain, chair
man of the cmpany, and other representa
tives conducted the visitors to the buttes
nd points where the tests were made.
Axite is a tiny, flanged, ribbon-shaped ma
terial of the form of a double steel rail,
rather lighter In color than cordite, and
very slightly bulkier, weight for weight.
One of its chief characteristics is that It
contains within Itself a lubricant of .the
nature of plumbago, so that although a
score of shots are fired from a rifle, and
the weapon is laid aside for a day or two,
the barrel appears to sustain no damage.
Indstd, If a rag is pulled through the bore
the rifting and barrel shine as if the weapon
had not been fired.
Experiment No. 1 went to prove that a
rifle from which ten rounds had been fired
twenty hours previous was absolut'-'.y
clean. The next test went to Indicate
that, compared with cordite, equal charges.
axite gave a much higher velocity, wLh
about the same barrel pressure as cbrdlte
at ordinary temperature, whilst at IK' -grees,
Fahrenheit, it was about half t y.ui
a square Inch less. The Increased velocity
was from ItiO feet to over 700 feet per sec
ond greater, according to the bullet used,
than with a cordite charge. Of course thla
also meant a smaller trajectory. Further

Great stress Is laid upon the state of the
teeth. Th volunteer, if he is to remain
on the force, must have sufficient sound
teeth for proper mastication, while he must
be free from all organic disease and have
a first-class constitution. Any defects
which would prevent a man marching well
or going on active service will also be
fatal. Generally he must come up to the

be over 45. But even if a man passes these
tests satisfactorily before he is to be

counted as a first-class shot.
Reports on these points having been com

CHINESE BOYCOTT WEAKENS

government by the receipt of messages
from meetings under the Influence of stu
dents educated abroad attacking certain
clauses of the proposed American exclusion
treaty and Insisting upon special treatment
In Hawaii and the Philippine Islands, where
the Chinese have enjoyed unrestricted lm
migration for centuries. The movement for
fhe boycotting of American goods has sub
sided owing to the action of the authorities
whose desire to prevent any Impairment of
the American good will Is beyond question
sincere. The Chinese have known the
power of the boycott for a long time an

against the two leading German houses a

The B .) The Inquiry Inc. th' Black sea
mutiny and the conditio of affairs leading
up to the rebellion of ' crews of the bat
tleships Knlas Poteml. e and Its companion
battleship, the George! Pobledonostseff. is
progref ,mg slowly. There appears to be
ime ground for the assumption that the
?lny wu the outcome of a carefully de
vised and far-reaching plot. If this was
the esse the organisers of the conspiracy
must have been somewhat discouraged at
the final results, though It appears to be
one of the characteristics of your true Rus
sian revolutionist that he never grows dis
couraged. At the outsat It was feared that
the whole Black sea squadron might bo In
fected with the germ of treason, that all
of the crews might take part in the Insur
rection, and that sympathetic uprisings at
Baltic naval stations might give the revo-
titlonlsts control of what is left of Rus
sia's sea power.
Considerable rhrewdness was evidenced
by the projectors of the movement, be the
plan narrow or broad in scope, when they
selected for the Initial explosion the bat
tleship Knlas Potemklne, by far the most
formidable vessel remaining under the Rus
slan flag.. The lgnomonlous failure of Ad
mlral Kruger to suppress the revolt, and
the almost simultaneous decision of the crew
on the Gcorgel Pobledonostseff. the next
most powerful battleship In the fleet, to
Join the mutineers, were auspicious events
for the insurgents and the government's
prospect of reasserting Its authority seemed
hopeless when the remainder of the squad
ron waa dismantled at Sevastopol.
Choknlne Is Popular.
Admiral Chuknlne, the real commander
of the Black sea fleet, has been something
of a hero In Russia. He Is an officer of
horn great things have been hoped, but
he has not had an opportunity of winning
fame in the . present war, though the
Wastage of admirals has been vry heavy
In the far east. Since Admiral Skrydloff
was withdrawn lo go to Port Arthur Ad
mlral Chuknlne has been In command of
this force, which has been of secondary
Importance since It is confined to the Black
se,a.by treaty obligations. It Is In existence
on the sufferance of Europe, and certainly
the English, the French, the German and
other governments would not long remain
silent provided It became the rule rather
than the exception for pirates to capture
Russian battleships and endanger the ship
ping belonging to merchants flying the flags
of these different governments. The Black
sea fleet came Into being In 1871, when
France and Germany were too busy to pay
much attention to external affairs and
when England also had its hands full.
Then it was that Russia revived Its claim
of the right to have armed ships In the
Black sea. This demand, as is well known.
was subsequently acknowledged provided
they never passed through the Dardenellea.
Consequently this Black sea fleet In the
past two years, while stirring events have
been happening, har felt Itself neglected
and forgotten from the admiral in com
mand to the youngest officer hoping to win
promotion by actual service, and it may be
that chagrin at their own mlBfortune has
not made them particularly tactful In their
treatment of their men. Besides, the dis
position has been to draw the better ma
terial for the other fleets, leaving the dregs
both as to officers and men here In the
Black sea. ,
Might Have Accomplished Something:.
The later developments tend to show that
had the two mutinous battleships acted to
gether. Instead of separately, one remain
ing idly at Odessa, the other going to the
Roumanian port of Kustendje, they might
by a threat of bombardment have forced
the garrison of Odessa to surrender or
raise the revolutionary flag; or the muti
neers themselves, having replenisheJ their
supplies, might have proceeded to Ratoum or
Potl. where their presence would doubtless
have acted like a torch on the accumulated
material for a conflagration In the Cauca
sus. -That the mutiny in tns mack sea fleet
did not have more serious results must be
attributed in a large measure to the fact
that the officers still remain loyal to the
existing government. The Russian peasant,
on land or on sea, does not make the high
est type of a soldier. He is a fatalist and a
good lighter, but he lacks the power to take
and execute. But for this fact the govern
ment of Russia would have ended long ago
so far as Its existing autocratic form Is
Inquiries show that the position of both
the officers and the men since the outbreak
of tha war with Japan has been one of
great perplexity and difficulty. Life on
the Black sea Is dull at best, and the con
scripts have no Ipve for sea life such as
can be provided by these enclosed waters.
The more adventurous spirits among those
of the quarter deck and the lower deck had
been encouraged to hope that the restric
tions confining the fleet to the Black sea
were about to be removed. Widespread
were the reports' to the effect that the
admiralty had decided that the man-of-war
should break through the Dardenellea at
the risk of the conaequencea, no matter
what they might be. Unfamiliar with the
ftnt-clasa warships possessed by tha powers
tn the Mediterranean, the crews of the
various shipa did not recognise the madness
Of thla action, which they too readily
ascribed to tnt aumorllles of pitting the
Russian ships (with two exceptions of the
poorest fighting qualities) against the splen
did men-of-war of the nations who were
parties to the treaty of Paris.
Hopes Were Dashed.
It was soon found, that the Russian
admiralty naturally dij not entertain this
idea. Instead, the more promising officers
and crews were withdrawn, and there suc
ceeded a feeling of discontent with tha Ufa
of inaction and uaclessness, and this was
accentuated when raw conscripts Were
drafted aboard to replace those who had
been withdrawn for war service. These
men went afloat full of discontent, and they

DISLIKES THE INCOME TAX
Many People Are Indignant with
Work of Assessors In
WNDON. July 22.-(3peclal Cablegram to
The Bee.) The report of the parliamentary
committee on the evasion of the Income
tax has been received by many people with
Indignation. They declare that numerous
people are made to pay Income tax who
should never pay at all; that the recoverv
cf the wrongly paid amounts Is so difficult
as to be almost Impossible; that large
numbers, especially tradesmen and strug
gling professional men, are assessed far
above their actual Income; and that a great
body of worklngmen earning well over the
minimum taxable Income pay nothing at
The handling of income tax returns Is so
delicate a matter that during recent years
a new profession, an offshoot of account
ancy has come Into being to defend the
purses of the rate payer". Firms like the
Income Tax Adjustment agency, the In
come Tax Reclamation association and
otheis have lti.ge offlet-s and keep large
staffs of men at work.
T. Hallett Fry, t..c head of the last
named association, dtvtares emphatically
that while there are evasions of income
tax the officials more than recompense for
these evasions by the excessive amounts
they obtain In other directions.
'Thousands of people, widows for in
stance, whose incomes may not be more
than $250 per year hut wiv- obtain their
money through lnteres In limited com
panies, have the tnx deducted before their
dividends are pnld to them," he said.
Many do not know how to recover.
"According to the last return there were
SSI, 600 separate assessments made on cem-
panles for income tax. If we allow an j
average of only twenty persons to one
company and one Arm, I.lpton's, has 4O.0C0
shareholders that makes 7,000,000 made to
pay full Income tax on their company earn
ings. Does anybody Imagine that there are
7.0(i0,00i) of people In England today earn
ing the full Income laid down by law be
yond the abatement limit?
"Then there are cxccsrIvo assessments.
The tradesman who has entered a shop in
a good suburban town finds himself as
sessed for $2,500. Probably he does not
make over $1,500 clear profit. But how Is
he to show It? As a rule he does not keep
books In a way which will enable him to
make out a clear statement. If he called
an accountant it would cost him probably
at least $150 to have a three years' state
ment drawn up. If he appeals he has to
detail all of his affairs to a number of
local men, very likely his business rivals.
"The same applies to bigger enterprises.
I know of one concern that In seven years
made an actual loss of $25,000. Vet during
that time it was assessed and had to pay
tax on $18,B00."
Compared with the United States evi
dently Great Britain has few persons who
receive incomes exceeding J250.OOO a year.
This fact Is revealed by the parliamentary
return on the assessment and payment of
income tax Just Issued by the treasury de
partment. According to thess same sta
tistics the emoluments of government, cor
porate and other public officials have risen,

CHRISTIANIA. July 22.-(Special Cable
gram to The Bee.) Absurd as It may seem
when the political upheaval In Russia is
remembered, despite the feeling against
Sweden which exists, the idea is every
where being expressed that it would be far
better for the people of Norway to again
unite with Sweden than to fall Into the
arms of Russia. Hopes are entertained of
good results from the effort to call to the
throne a prince of Danish or English blood
In the event of this coming to naught and
with prospects of diplomatic negotiation on
the part of Russia being opened. It Is be
lieved that by far the great majority of
the people of Norway would again hall a
union with Sweden. One trouble is that
grave fears are entertained as to Russia's
ultimate action in the extension of its
frontier, which Is only a few miles from
the head of the Lyngenfjord. In securing
this fjord a warm water port open all the
year round would be obtained by Russia,
action which It Is feared would lead 4o an
nexation by Russia.
STOCKHOLM, July 22.-(8peclal Cable

sing the Scandinavian rupture, has the fol
lowing to say: "We have not to consider
the question of war with Norway, as, to
our knowledge, no war Is thought of In any
responsible qusrter n Sweden. But it may
be a very different thing If It were thought
necessary that Sweden should be prepared
for every eventuality In dealing with those
who showed no hesitation In trampling
under foot existing treaties and laws. We
know now by experience that anything
may be expected."

that he failed to forward his diamond reg

Admiral Blgsbee was In general command
of the cortege as senior officer present.
The wireless communication between the

entire nation by Its long roster of casual

day. Even the wildest early estimates of
the terrible results of the exploding boilers
aboard the gunboat have not been exag

of the casualties later and complete details
have added to It. The death list may be
swelled by the appalling total of fourscore

the injured now In the various hospitals

The Bennington tonight lies deeper than
