STOCKHOLM, Sept. 2. (Special Cable
fram.) The Norwegian plebsette demanded
by the Swedish Plksdag, whose result has
been awaited with so much Interest, has at
last become an accomplished fact, giving
868,000 yeas for the dissolution of the union
against the Insignificant minority of 181
nays, and thus It can safely be asserted
that the whole Norwegian people wishes to
be free from the union with Sweden. Since
this correspondence comes from Sweden, It
night be considered more appropriate 'o
cite opinions from other countries con
cerning the action of Norway, rather than
giving Swedish opinions, which may be ex
pected to be somewhat biased. My atten
tion has Just been called to. what the great
Berlin paper, the Post, says on this sub
ject: "In nearly every country, outside :f
Scandinavia, the opinion Is prevalent that
It was somewhat unlawful and violent of
the Norwegians to announce the union dis

unanimity and boundless rejoicing, voted
for the dissolution of the union with
Sweden. Oreatly disheartened, and com

and look on. And King Oscar csnnot help

BISHOP DENOUNCES TEACHERS
Those Who Dishonored ToMt t
Klna Are Called to
DUBLIN, Sept. 2 (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.; Speaking at a meeting of na
tional school teachers at Tuam. Rev. Dr.
Healy, Roman Catholic archbishop of
Tuam, referred to the recent disloyal dem
onstration at the teachers' dinner at 81igo.
He advised the 'eachers to conduct their
legitimate agitation with prudence and cir
cumspection and not allow the behaviour
of a few Irresponsible person to bring dis
credit on their cause. The Inhabitants of
the west of Ireland always had been genu
ine loyalists In spite of much foolish talk,
but the Orangemen of Belfast were not
genuine loyalists at all. They only prated
about loyalty to the king, but when their
loyalty was tested It was a humbug. Their
western forefathers were loyal to Charles
I perhaps more than he deserved because
he was the king. They were loyal In their
day to James 11 unworthy as he was be
cause he was the king, whilst the ancestors
of those blatant loyalists sold their king, a
king of their own blood, and drove his chil
dren Into exile. They in the west , were
loyal to King Edward. They owed him an
absolute and unconditional loyalty as king
de Jure and de facto. The Belfast Oranne
men were loyal to the king only because iia
was a Protestant king, and If his tnsjesty
Were to become a Roman Catholic they
would kick his cown into the Boyne and
bring In an usurper. These were the per-
sons who lectured national teachers about
disloyalty, when all of their own loyalty
was founded on the sectarianism 'of the
Hill of Rights, not on the true principles
of Christian loyalty. He hoped that no
Irish teacher or Irishman would ever fall
to pay dne honor to the toi of "Edward
VII." who not only royally but personally
deserved that honor at the hands of every
Irishman. But If anything could set him
against rising to do due honor to the name
of the king. It would be that he was called
upon to do so by loyalists, who had no real
loyalty, and by hypocrites, who mnde their
boasted loyalty a pretence to preserve an
odious political ascendency.

Leave Impress ipos
LONDON, Sept. 2. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) It Is possible that the two great
parties of Great Britain, the conservatives
and the liberals, arc about to see the
entering wedge of the line of cleavage and
the greatest split In party policies wit
nessed Blnce Joseph Chamberlain startled
the world with his repudiation of free trade
and his commencement of a campaign In
favor o i'rotection.
It Is beginning to be believed here that
the resignation of Ixjrd Curxon of Kedleston
as viceroy of India foretells trouble for the
conservatives. Bron Ciirnnti Is a con
servative, but this fact makes him all
the more powerful in case he chooses to
lead the Tight In Englnnd against the con
servatives and the home government. In
all probability party ties In Great Britain
set more lightly on men's shoulders than
they do In the I'nlted States or the colonies,.
From the days of the agitation in favor
of the abolition of the corn laws, from the
times of the great Pitt, English history Is
full of Instances in which Kieat leaders
of men have turned and walked Into the
camp of the opposition without the cry
ot "traitor" really seriously Injuring them.
No one believes here that Lord Curxon Is
the kind of a man to surrender a fight for
a great principle without makinn a contest
which shall be truly historic. The corre
spondence shows a , decidedly bitter feeling
between lord Curxon and Iord Kitchener,
the commander-ln-rhlef of the forces In
India, over the new scheme of army ad
ministration In India. Iord Curzon's dis
satisfaction came to a head with the re
fusal of the cabinet to appoint Major Gen
eral Sir Edmund Barrow on Lord Curxon'8
recommendation to be military supply
member of the council.
Carson Mlaht Make Tronhle.
If Ixrd Curzon should return to England
at the present time and Join forces with
the liberals It would undoubtedly cause a
political unheaval which must result in
the downfall of the present conservative
administration. It will be remembered that
Just prior to tne adjournment of Parlia
ment the government suffered a severe
d'-feet nt the band of the liberal. Though
Mr. Balt6rirvrefused to recognize the fact
that the situation called for a resignation
of the cabinet and an appeal to the country.
It was everywhere admitted that the ad
verse vote meant a general eleejlon within
one year. The conservative leaders were
a unit In acknowledging this; the chief
objection urged was the fact that an appeal
to the country during the hot summer
months was not desirable. Even the liberals
agreed with the conservatives that the
summer time was not propitious for a
campaign. Roughly speaking, it would ap
pear that the chief difference between the
liberals and the conservatives In the matter
of the time of holding the election Is that
the liberals want It next fail, the con
servative are hoping to he able to put
oft the crisis until next spring. And if
the weakness of the government 1 any
criterion, a liberal cabinet with a liberal
premier Is not among the Impossibilities.
In case Lord Curzon should play his
cards right It I not impossible that he
may find htrnself in the lead of of the lib'
eral party. Mr. Campbell-Bannerman 1 not
regarded as a- really strong man the type
of a man to command and demand attention
at the hands of the voters of Great Britain.
Then . it would undoubtedly be sweet re
venge for Lord Curzon to succeed Mr,
Broderick, secretary of state for India, for
It was the fact that Mr. Broderick aided
with Lord Kitchener Instead of Lord Cur
on which brought about the destruction
ot the Influence of the Indian viceroy with
the home government.
May Rank Kitchener.
Or Lord Curzon might choose the post
of war minister in the United Kingdom
thereby making himself Lord Kitchener'
superior and forcing his idea upon India
through the War office from London and
through Lord Kitchener himself. The whirl
igig of time has brought stranger revenges
than that. One thing 1 certain, that Lord
Curxon ha much to hope for at the hand
of the liberal he ha little or nothing to
hop for at the hand of ths conservatives
H haa already been honored by a con

JOHANNKSBlRG. Sept. 2. (Special Ca
blegram to The Bee.) The "color ques
tion" Is causing no end of trouble to the
ruling forces In the Transvaal. A deputa
tion from a political organisation represent
ing the colored population of the Transvaal
waited upon Lord Solborne and laid before
him certain grievances with respect to the
eI.T :X.t:r i
and other Important matters. Ixjrd Sel
borne replied to the several points raised
by the deputittion. He reminded it that
the franchise, as It now existed, was the
result of the terms of the Vereenlng
delibero nolicy adopted afterwards. He i
poln T that the nutlve and the col-
o" ..ins were not a simple matter, as
V inferred from the language of the
.atlon, and that unless the real diffi-
.ities and complications of the matter
were recognized the country would not
able to arrive at any solution of the prob
lem. That the matter is one which will not
down at bidding is evidenced by the fact
that a deputation of the Wltwatersrand
church council, representing the Presby
terian, Wesleyan, Baptist and Congrega
tional churches, also waited upon Lord
Selborne and protested against the legisla
tion tending to restrict the rights of the
natives In the matter of land tenure.
In the course of the Interview the depu
tation raised the entire question of the
status of the colored people. They declared
that they took their stand on the principle
of equal political rights for all the civilized
people of South Africa and deprecated the
imposition of any disabilities on civilized
natives. They alleged that the latter had
been disappointed In the expectations they
had formed of British administration and
referred to certain aspects of police admin
istration of municipal regulations as press
ing unjustly on the native population.
Finally they claimed to represent the views
of the moderate party, opposed to the ex-
ereme negrophillsts at home as well as
the extremists who oppose the negro In
Ixrd Selborne stated that he did not feel
called upon to put forth any final views
upon what was clearly the most Important
question that the government has to con
tend with in South Africa. With regard to
the tenure of land by natives, however.
the position taken by the government had
been clearly stated by the attorney general.
but In view of the desire expressed by the
legislative council, that land purchased by
natives should be registered In the name
of the commissioner for native affairs, he
thought that the government ought to ac
cede to that request. No control, however.
would be vested In the commissioner.
He strongly deprecated the vague state
ments which had been made regarding the
prevalence of an Impression among the na
tives that the British administration was
less Just than the Boer government, and
pointed out that it was the duty of every
Individual, If an Instance came to his
knowledge which might give color to such
an insinuation, to report the matter to the

ROW IN PRINTING OFFICE
Publlo Printer Palmer Requests
Realftnnl tons of Two
WASHINGTON. Sept. 2.--Publlc Printer
Palmer has requested the resignations of
Oscar J. Rickets, foreman of printing, and
L. C Hay, foreman of the Job division of
the government printing office, basing his
action upon their alleged continued acts
of Insubordination. Both Officials have re
fused to comply with the request, on the
grounds that they are not required to do
so until furnished with specific Instances
of insubordination and given sufficient' op
portunity to reply, a required by the civil
service regulations. Mr. Rickets tonight
Issued a brief statement of the case, at
the same time speaking in behalf of Mr.
Hay. In his statement he says:
We (Hay and Rlcketni know of no reason
why this request should be made at this
time, unless It arises from the fact that
we were called as witnesses and testified
In the matter of the Investigation of the
purchase of certain tyiwsetting machines,
and In that respect we gave evidence fairly
and honestly, as we were obliged to do
under our oaths.
We have declined to comply with the re
quest for our resignations and have sub
mitted the matfcer to the civil service com
mission and to the president of the I'nlted
States. We believe that a full and complete
Investigation of the situation will result
In our being exonerated from any charge
made by the public printer.

PORTSMOUTH. N. H , Sept. !.-The last
point In dispute was arranged at a .meeting
of the Russian and Japanese plenipoten
tiaries, which ended at 11 o'clock tonight,
and ft Is possible that the treaty may be
As the plenipotentiaries emerged from M.
Wit to' room, where the conference was
held, Baron de Rosen wss asked If a final
agreement had been reached. He did not
"Will there be a meeting tomorrow'
"No." he replied, "there Is no necessity
for one, the clerks can do the rest."
It Is now understood that the treaty will
consist nf seventeen articles, preceded by
a short preamble In which, It Is asserted on
good authority, no allusion will be made to
the action displayed by' President Roosevelt
In bringing about the peace conference
which led to the conclusion of the treaty.
Sakhalin nt to Re Fortified.
The treaty will not be engrossed by th
two rallgraphera sent by the State depart
ment. At the last moment It was decided
to have attaches of the two missions per
form this work. The article relating to tha
non-fort itieat Ion of the Island of Sakhalin
and a Perouso straits and the evacuation
of Manchuria were settled; both parties
binding themselves not to fortify the Island.
La Perouse Is to be "open" and Japan
ngrres not to erect works to command th
The article relating to the evacuation of
Manchuria provides that the troops, Imme
diately upon the exchange of final ratifica
tions, are to be withdrawn respectively to
the lines of Mukden and Harbin, and the
number of "railroad guards" In ordinary
tlmea Is limited, but provision Is made for
the dispatch of troop for the protection of
the line in case of disorders, in case they
are withdrawn when their mission 1 fin
ished. There are said to he four "annexe"
to the treaty, covering matter which could
not be elaborated In the treaty Itself.
Conference Over Sakhalin
The statement In the Associated Preaa
last night that the erles of conferences
which continued until almost midnight re
in fed- to difference over th articl
corning the division nf Sakhalin 1 fully
confirmed. The Japanese at first were In
clined to be obdurate, but an arrangement
mutually satisfactory was provisionally
agreed to, and It Is expected to be finally
ratified by the chief plenipotentiaries dur
Inz the day.
The article relating to Sakhalin' will be In
accordance with the original agreement a
given in the Associated dispatches Tuesday
night, namely, mutual obligation not to
fortify Sakhalin and obligation of Japan
not to fortify I Perouse strait. The only
other question which remain to be solved
is involved In the details of the evacuation
of Manchuria. The troops are to be Imme
diately withdrawn, the Japanese to th Una
of Mukden and the Russians to Harbin.
Tiie details of the subsequent withdrawal
have not yet been arranged.
Statua ot Strait.
The Japanese desired that the word da-
scribing the status of La Perouse straits
should be "open," but the Russian wanted
It distinctly specified that no fortification
should be erected on Japan' side which
could support a war fleet or under whose
gun a fleet could operate. They did not
want the situation to be similar to that
of Gibraltar, which, although "open,"
could, if England desired, be Instantly
closed. A to the evacuation of Man
churia, the Japanese want the method and
time of the withdrawal of the troop par
ticularized and the number of the "rall
roud guards" which are to remain speci
fied in the bond. To permit this question
to be left open would be equivalent to a
tacit understanding that Russia waa tp
retain it "sphere of InDvience" In north
ern and Japan its in southern Manchuria.
It would revive in a way the situation
which existed before the war. The control
of Manchuria might become a bone of
contention leading eventually to another
Th Interruption with communication
with Japan may delay slightly th slgnlag
of the treaty. The Associated Press can
state definitely that no messages hava
reached the Japanese plenipotentiary for
four day and they are now proceeding un
der their general Instructions. A cable has
been received from the Japanese consul at
Hong Kong aaylng that he could not tell
when communication would be restored.
The typhoon which Interrupted communica
tion was very severe, but It was not known
whether It affected both the land and sub
marine line. Baron Komura ha not yet
decided whether, upon the engrossment of
th treaty, he will assume th responsibility
of signing it without direct authorisation.
If he does not, however, the delay would
be only a matter of two or three day,
a special steamer could go from Shanghai
to Nagasaki In fifty hours.
Th Japanese say the emperor' failure to
send a message of thanks to President
Roosevelt 1 undoubtedly du to th inter
ruption of communication.
