BERLIN, Dee. . (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) A the altuatlon between Ger
many and France continues to btow more
and more (trained Germany and England
are apparently becoming- more and more
friendly. Thl la one ot the things which It
Is difficult to explain. Probably the aver
fige Englishman would resent the Impli
cation and Inference that an Increase In the
friction between France and Germany
means that Great Britain is onco agnln
climbing down on the side of her old time
ally Oermany and planning to line up
against her old time enemy. France. Such
a proposition would In itself appear to spell
disloyalty to the spirit of the entente cor
.11 Me between Great Britain and France,
and It Is doubtful whether the people of
England would be willing to abandon the
Idea of an attachment with their new-found
friends, the French, except under the gra
vest of circumstances.
rmbably the truth of the matter Is found
In the Idea that nations as well as In
dividuals are self-centered If not selfish.
When It conies to a final analysis Great
Britain is not for France, for Oermany or I
ror anv other nation: but first, last and all tlons at Baku have Issued a Joint prociama
t he time for Grcut Britain. It would appear tlon. declaring that they have formed an
though the recent antagonism between
England and Germany has been economic
rather than political. Formerly Russia was
Great Britain's great rival. Tho war be
tween Russia and Japan, resulting In tha
destruction of the world prestige of Russia,
If not tho ending of the Russian govern
ment ns at present constituted, has re
moved from the Englishman his greatest
apprehension danger to India. Russia's
ambitions for an outlet to the unfrozen seas
through tho Golden Horn to the Mediter
ranean, through the Persian gulf to the In
dian ocean, along the line of the Siberian
railway to Tort Arthur these have been
the things which have kept the British
statesmen awake nights. The Russian peril
removed, Germany apparently became Eng
land's greatest economic rival for the trade
of the world and Its desire for the acquisi
tion of more colonial Innds appeared to
clash at times with Great Britain's policies

there never would be a serious difference of
opinion between the two nations.
German Quick to Respond.
Germans have been quick to see that the
new liberal ministry In England affords
tliem the best possible hope of re-establishing
cordial and friendly relations between
the two nations.' It would probably be un
just to assert that the Balfour government
countenanced the attacks of the Jingo Eng
lish press upon the kaiser and his people,
yet It Is believed here that in Its desperate
clinging lo official life unsatisfactory for
eign relations with some nation were not
unwelcome. In Great Britain, aa in other
niuons, ill l"r iFU iciaiioiis i.ii" uinoiMi mn

Whether Mr. Balfour has ever possessed
iinv frellna- on this subiect. whether he has
been disposed lo use this well known fact
In International polities. h probably alone
Campbell-Bannerman is under no such
temptatl n. Moreover, the whole attitude of
his party since the Boer war has been in
opposition to the most pronounced of Im
perialistic methods. The presence in the
new cabinet of James Bryce would alone
reassure Germany, for It Is only a few
months since he published an admirable
letter of protest against a senseless anti
German campaign for which the military
mid the naval Jingoes were largely respon
sible. Evidently the Germans do not In
tend to lose a minute In beginning the work
of pacification. ' The recent meeting of the
Berlin Chamber of Commerce, which re
sulted In the friendliest resolutions on the
subject of Anglo-German relations, was an
reho of a similar gathrilng to promote untv
reeently held In London, with Lord Avebury
In the chair.
The kaiser has Just sent to Lord Avebury,
who presided over the meeting In the Cax
ton hall in Westminster, his slncerest
thanks to all who share Ixu-d Avebury's
feelings of friendship and good will, and In
the Reichstag the references of one of the

BAKU ARMENIANS PROTEST

ST. PETERSBURG (via Warsaw), Dec.
It'. (Special Cablegram to The Bee.) The
conflict between the Imperialists and the
revolutionists during the last few weeks
has been as fierce in the Caucasus a in
any other part of the Russian empire. The
Armenian revolutionary organisation known
as "Dashnakhtsutlun" (the Droshaklsts) to
the number of l,oi In military array vis
ited the Tartar quarters and addressed the
Tartars, telling them that they were the
committee of whom so much evil had been
spoken, that they were not the enemies of
the Tartars, and that they desired nothing
better than to live with the Tartars on
terms of friendship. The Armenians then
visited tho Persian consulate, at which the
xill-ea-auitan, the shah's elder brother, was
staying, and sent a deputation to assure
him that the report of outrages committed
hupon Persian subjects by the Armenians
was unfounded, and to request him to trans
mit to the shah tho gratitude of the Ar
menians for the protection accorded to
their kinsfolk In Persia. The zlll-es-sultan
in reply declared thut as there was only one
sun In the heaven, which shone upon all.
so there was only one shah, who visited
with his favor all h! subjects alike with
out distinction of religion or race. The
slll-es-sultan added that It was a profound
satisfaction to him to hear the assurances
of the Armenians and that he would at
once communicate their words to the shah
All of which sounded very pacific. And
yet during the four days which followed
these protestations titty houses were burned
in the Baku district alone and at least
300 lives were sacrificed. It Is significant
tliat throughout the riots the troopa tit.ier
played the part of passive spectators or
actively co-operated with the so-called "pa
triots" or imperialists in deptruction and
rapine. It Is also noteworthy that the Tar
tars as a race took no part In the out
break, and the Baku which, though edited
by a Russian, may be resumed as an Ar
menian organ, declares expressly that the
leading Tartar clttiens did all In their
power to preserve order. In consequence

AGAINST IRON IN BUILDINGS
London Architects Declare that Steel
Structure Cannot Be Con
LONDOJy. Dec. 30. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) The Charing Cross disaster has
caused a discussion among the architects of
tendon as to whether buildings In which
lroti is largely used aro safe. Thomas Jack
son, ono of the loading architect of the
city, in an Interview upon tho subject said:
The life of an iron structure exposed to
the weather depends absolutely and solely
upon tho thin skin of the paint we put upon
it, which is constantly perishing and must
be constantly renewed. Iron construction
it may safely bo maintained, is still on it
trial and what haa happened may be the
fwM rrr-traf raised th "tjuesTlorr of
the safety of Iron buildings generally, and
recalls the fact "that the house fronts of
miles and mlloe of London streets art en
tlrely carried on Iron girders, and that they
are not proof against the damps and fogs
of London, to the ravages of which the iron
girder is as susceptible as the human lung.
Mr. Jackson adds that thirty years has
been said to be the life of a girder. He con
cludea by saying that no architect who
wishes bis building lo live will use iron or
steel excent for such minor matters as ties
and bolts and small girders to carry floors
John Belcher, tho president of the Royal
Institute of British Architects, says that
danger arises from two causes: FlrBt, the
changes In th metal itself brought about In
tne course or yearn, auu. wnu, iuc iur
roslon arising from damp eating into Joint.
' i a -I , ..1 1 a- ,, In. tha
ell as rusting the
the case of railway
bridges there was a third cause of danger
In tho constant vibration.
"If St. Paul's had been built of Iron and
feel It would have disappeared long ago.
said Mr. Belcher. "I do not think there la
any great danger In the case of those build
Ings where the Iron or steel parts aro built
In and hermetically sealed. In thoso clr
cumstances the metal seems to keep Its
strength. But the danger cornea where the
exterior Is of metal."

The agitation has produced two distinct 1

' Story of Coenr M'Alene Strike.
Governor Steunenberg became known
throughout the nation through his con
nection with the Coeur d'Alene miners'
strike, which began in the spring of lS9!t.
The Miners' union made certain demands,
which were refused by tho mine owners.
Most of the mines were closed down, but
an attempt was made to operate the mill
of the Bunker Hill and Sullivan with non
union help. In April of that year a crowd
of strike sympathizers took possession of
a train and went to the mill. The build
ing was blown up with dynamite and at
least one man was killed by the explosion.
The mine owners appealed to the gov
ernor for protection, alleging that the
strikers were resorting td every form of
violence aud Intimidation to prevent the
operation of the mines by nonunion men.
The state militia being considered In
sufficient to cope with the situation, Gov
ernor Steunenberg proclaimed a state of
Insurrection and called upon President Mc
Klnle.y for federal troops. General H. C.

Governor General DoubnsBoff has tele
graphed to the government from Moscow
that a large meeting of revolutionists and
strikers nt the Prokharoft cotton mill, out
sido the city, was surrounded by troops of
all arms today. The artillery opened a

rent in the walls, which suddenly crumbled
und the building came down in a heap.
Hundreds. If not a thousand persons, were
burled in the ruins.
Doubassoff regarded the 1'rokharoff mills
as tho stronghold of the revolutionists, and
he reports that Moscow will be entirely
cleared ot them In three days.
The governor general also reports that he
prevented several thousand "loyalists" who
assembled in the Sukolulkl district, iu the
outskirts of Moscow, from inurcliing lnti
tho city for the purpose of attacking the
strikers, revolutionists und Jews. The po
lice force of Moscow has been Increased by

disorganization of the economic life of the
nation through a unlvetsal strike and is al
ready in many pnrts of the country' tklng
on the character of an armed uprising;.
"Tho Council of Workmen's deputies,"
the resolution concludes, "decides to pro
ceed immediately with warlike operation
and the organization of nu armed uprising."
The council recoRnlzed thst the attempt of
an immediate uprising could not succeed In
the capital, but while making preparations
It would be necessary to undertake a sort
of guerrilla warfare, consisting of the dis
arming of police and soldiers wherever they
are found alone In the streets, tho use of
bombs from ambush nnd other acts of ter
ror. The council drew up a proclamation to the
Cossacks, warning them thnt if they con-
i tinned to fight analnst the people they
' would be treated like mad dogs, and If
they desired to be treated as brothers they
should remain In their barracks.
An appeal was also drawn up requesting
the proletariat of all countries to support
the fight begun at Moscow.
Armed Rebellion Fall.
10:30 p. m. Tho government claim that
tho Attempt, at an armed rebellion haa
failed signully. In a semi-official communi
cation Issued tonight it declares too move-
when the voice of the nation and not of a.
single class can be heard.
A member of the cabinet said today:
"The result of the attempt of the revolu
tionaries to overthrow the government by
force was never for a moment :n doubt,
but what has occurred and what la occur
ring, we believe, will have a salutary effect
on public opinion. Revolution will go on,
but it is our purpose to confine it to peace
View of Revolutionist.
The Assoetnied litss tcuigiil talked with
a prominent revolutionary, who is a lead
ing spirit In the movement to raie the dy
nasty and lis regime, and for whom the
police are search. ng. He was unable to
j corneal his depression, but nevertheless he
clalintd that the movemi nt had received
only a temporary cluck, lie said:
We blundered badly. We fell Into the
trap Vine set for us. EmlHildened at tho
reeuiing p.irlysl. of the government, our
Intention of preparing on armed revolution
j brondcast. We virtually threw our ends
on the table then.
Wltte clinlleiiB. d nnd we rashly accented
before either ;anlzation waa perfvrted
or plans matured. It una all too sudden
nd Ill-timed. The workmen were worn
out by the recent strikes and thu holiday
were at hand, xtid h-stUts. we obtained
neither active co-opcrntiou from the popu
lace, on which we li.id counted, nor from
the troops, iinionx w hum we know we liuvu

But the situation lus also Its bright

is a Kiv.it victory. Toe koi eminent must
