Millions for the Campaign.
' A general election costs a vast deal of
money. Roughly speaking, about l.Ml can
didates seek parliamentary honors. Each
one is entitled to spend, according to tne
number of electors, from I1.7M to 17,200 upon
his expenses, the mean rum being about
13.500, or an aggregate amount of no less
than HllO.oni). In addition a large sum Is
spent by the various local associations,
quite apart from the expenses of the randl
dates, by leagues supporting tariff reform
free trade, the Church of England, noncon
formlty, etc. Also large amount will be
expended b) the great political organlza.

A professional political expert Is authority

half of the candidates. Printers and so.
Helton have been great gainers by the cam
palgn. Motor cars that will be used w.ll
represent a capital sum of many millions,
and on petrol and lubricating nils alone
much money will be spent. Jobmasters,
coachmen and cab drivers and owners are
benefiting to the tune of thousands of
pounds; and managers of railway com
panies find that the traffic generally Is be
ing increased, coming as the election dos
so early In the year.
From the purely social point of view the
next liberal administration If the liberals
win. and everybody Is now figuring that
they will win will be one of the most re
markable on record.
Enormous wealth Is vested In the persona
of the leading politicians on the libera
side, and during the lifetime of the next
llt-ral ministry entertaining will recover
much of the scad magnificence which char-
acterlzed It in the days when Holland

noble families of England gave their alle- '.

No one commanding personality will over
shadow the doifn or more notable women

Finding a condition ot affairs rspldly ap

been established definitely. Mr. Jameson
argues, that a knowledge of the Chinese,
their character and customs. Is essential
for their adequate control. Accordingly It
Is only natural that every one connected
with the mines should be anxious to co
operate as fir as possible with the nr
superintendent and his stnff of inspectors.
The first step taken by Mr. Jameson Is to
try to bring the Chinese back to a proper
respect for the law and the government of
the country. In the place of badly drnrn 1
notices on change sheets of paper imposing
proclamations, carefully worded in th ,
angunite appreciated by the Chinamen, nre i
being Issued. These proclamations set fort a .
the duties and obligations of the Chinamen. (
together with the pains and penalties Im-
posed for breaches of the law. In the words
of one of these proclamations It Is no I
longer a valid excuse for a Chinaman to !
plead Ignorance of the law, for It Isjils frt
duty on entering a country to acquaint him- j
self with Its laws and customs, and now
these laws and customs are being brought
to his notice in the plainest manner po--
slhle. The basis of the new system of con- j
pol is that every mine must be visited once ;
In twenty-four hours by a government In-
spector, who will hear complaints from the .
coolies and from the mln ofllcials, will
settle dllllcultlf s and if need be pass sum- I
mary sentence on wrong-doers. At present '
It is only possible to provide for such a
visit once in rorty.eignt hours, nut wuu m
lucrea? in the number of Inspectors from!"'
seven to eleven th system of supervision
will be complete. Immunity for the Rand i
rom Chinese crime and disturbances, ho. -
v r. will not have been secured until the .
riminul elemrnt that has come over wlt'i
the honaflile laborers has been eliminated.
Their numbers relatively are not great, but
an organization known us the Red Door so
ciety h;ts been formed and constitutes a
menacw to t lie public peace. In most con-
, . . v. - - t
slgnments there would seem to be two or ;
thrcc bad characters who before a very
long sojourn on the Rand discover others of
their kidney, and the society Is thus ablo to i
extend Its ramifications. A considerable
proportion of the members have already
been arrested nnd are awaiting repatriation.
It will be difficult, however, to Insure tho
elimination of every one unless further
powers nre conferred upon the authorities. ,

DUBLIN, Jan. . (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) Dublin stockholders have Just
Issued an emphatic protest against a few
stockbrokers enjoying through the special
favor of the lord chancellor a monopoly
In the vnst and profitable business involved
In Investments under the land purchase act.
The grievance, as Is pointed out. Is the
more seriously felt because there has been
a continued depression In the business of
the Dublin Stock exchange. There Is In
the land act a practical provision which
enables the vendor or vendors within a
limited time to elect In what security the
purchase money is to be Invested pending
distribution. The election is of course cir
cumscribed as to trust funds, but even
this necessary restriction leaves still a
very wide range for selection. Pending the
election the money Is retained In consols.
There is a natural disposition on the part
of Investors to make at this early date
ft permanent InvefUinent. Otherwise they

role. Instead of playing the part of the
War Lord he Is apparently the apostle of

the public in the following which recently
appeared in the Parts Temps and which
the Temps claims Is what the kaiser said
recently In a private Interview:
"It is wrong to say that there exists

nothing to create difficulties. I have given
all of the persons connected with foreign

That there is more behind this private
statement of the German emperor than ap
pears on the surface. No nuitter what the
reason, a change haa corns across the
spirit of the kaiser. As he grows older he
grows more and more conservative. What
ever he says In the jingo spirit of "I-don't-want-to-fight-but-by-Jlngo-lf-I-do"

the Idea of securing larger and larger ai- j

One great German authority says that
e German emperor has been deeply lm-
. . - .... . '
pressed by the fate which has overtaken
his royal relative, the cxar of Russia. It
would have been Impossible, It Is argued,
for the Russian revolutionaries to have
made any headway In Russia if It had not
been for the unexpected defeat of the Rus
sian armies and nnvlea at the hands of the
Japanese. With these necessary weapons
of an autocratic government in his hands
as perfect as they .were three years ago it
is argued that the oiar could have put
down any rebellion which might have
arisen. A shock to the ferman arms, the
destruction of German prestige, nnd the
kaiser knows that lie would be as much
at the mercy of the revolutionary forces as
Is the czar today. More than he fears
France, more than he fears England, the
crar fears the growth of socialism at home.

The installation of a typewriting machine
In the hearing room before
today's session opened, by order of Mr.
Hadley. Indicated an effort on his part to
save the commissioner from the necessity
'of writing down in longhand the words of
the questioner and witnesses, which was
Insisted upon yesterday by counsel for the
Standard Oil company.
Mrs. Rntts on Stand.
Before the opening of proceedings Mr.
Wellman announced that after today tho
hearings will be transferred to the offices
of a reporting company at 67 Wall street.
The first witness today was Mrs. Ida M.
Butts of Marietta, O. When the examina
tion of Mrs. Butts was begun the type
writer began his work, but Frank Hager
man, for the Standard Oil company, de
manded that the operator repeat each ques
tion and answer after he bad written It.
Mr. Hadley agreed to this.
Mrs. Butts said she was a stepdaughter
of the late George Rice of Marietta and
had been employed In his office. Mr. Rice
was an independent oil operator and was
engaged in litigation with the Standard
Oil company almost constantly for more
than twenty years up to the time of his
death, about a year ago.
When Mr. Hadley asked the witness If
Rice was ever coneeted with the Standard
Oil company, counsel for all the oil com
panies represented objected, but the wit
ness said: "If holding a certificate is a
membership, he was a member of the
Standard Oil trust." j
"Were those certificates Issued by the 1
Standard Oil trust?" !
Counsel also objected to this question and
Proceedings In Ohio.
Witness said the Standard Oil company
was organized In U8J, George Rice died
last year and witness now holds the certi
ficate as his administratrix.

"So far as I know." Mrs. Butts reDlled.
She said that suit was brought against
the Standard OH company of Ohio to drive
them out of the territory or out of the
state if they remained ln the trust.
In response to a request by Mr. Hadley
for a aU.ieme.ni of the history of that liti
gation and what the Standard Oil coiupany
did in defence. Mis. Butts said:
"Thc Standard Oil trust moved to dissolve
In ls92 and these were liquidating trustees
certitlcates. This went on until about 16S7,
few, very few certificate being liquidated.
General Monett. attorney general of Ohio,
brought suit and I think the supreme court
decided that the trut should get out of
Ohio in 1&9 and then the Standard OH
company of New Jersey became the holding
"Was this move in 12 to dh-sulve the j

IONDON. Jan. K According to official
Information received in Iondon, Germany
not only demands thnt all the po'rs shall
participate In the execution of reforms In
Morocco, but the work of watching the
frontier shall be divided atnong them, thus
realising the fears expressed by an official
of the Foreign office in an Interview with
the Associated Press last Thursday that
the German delegates might insist on
regulations clashing with what France con
sidered Its special privileges, for Instance,
the policing of the frontier. If Germany
persists in this attitude In the conference
It is believed a most serious situation wilt
arise, as France Is certnln to resist, and
Great Britain will support France.
The British government, while believing
the conference will reach a satisfactory
settlement, realises that persistence by
Germany In Its demands will cause Irrita
tion which will require nil the efforts of
the delegates to remove, and In this It
experts the support of the I'nlted States,
Spain and Italy.
The. British public Is busy with the elec
tions and is not taking much Interest In
the question. Members of the diplomatic,
corps believe Germany Is putting forward
lis demands before the meeting Of the
conference to see how they are received,
in official and unofficial circles the possi
bility of war Is considered the remotest,
even if the conference falls, particularly
as these who are Inspiring the German
policy do not belong to the war party, but
are powerful commercial men.
Italy's Position Delicate.
ROME. Jan. 8. Interest here In the con
ference on Moroccan reforms Is growing.
This Is due to the predominant position
that Italy will assume because of the
Importance of Its delegate, Marquis Vlscontl
Venosta, who, when he was Italian minister
of foreign affairs, concluded an agreement
with France by whlrh Italy abandoned Its
; claims on Morocco for France. This agree
ment was completed later by Foreign Minis
ter Prinettl. who pledged Italy's help tn
France in Morocco, receiving In exchange,
the help of France in Tripoli.
At that time Germany had shown no In
terest In Morocco, while Italy considered .
Itself free to so act, Morocco not being in
cluded In the agreement of the triple al
liance concerning the equilibrium of the
Mediterranean. Now Germany, It is said,
maintains thnt any question, even If It
were not contemplated by the triple alli
ance, comes within the terms of the treaty
and If Germany Is attacked by another
power the other two members of the triple
alliance. Austria and Italy, are compelled
to assist it with arms.
Thus the situation of Italy In the confer
ence Is becoming more delicate as the con
ference may lead to war. though the pros
pects at present point toward peace.
The opinion Is prevalent here that Franca
should represent the powers In the work

Intrust to It. or principally to It, the exe-
cutlon of the program of reforms and tha
safeguarding of the Interests ot Germany
and Spain and the ensuring r.f the complete
liberty of commerce for all time.
t"p to the present time It Is asserted Ger
many has refused to even discuss this posi
tion, limiting Itself to the recognition of
the right of France to protect the Algerian
frontier on the Moroccan side.
Foreign Minister Bangullano haa tele
graphed to Stgnor Pnnza, the Italian am
bassador at London, to come to Rome to
discuss with Mm Great Britain's attltudo
on the Algecelras conference. There is much
speculation here as to the attitude ' Tunis
will take. Several Journalists have en
gaged to Interview Ambassador White with
regard to this, but he has refused to be
questioned. Mr. White will leave Naples
January 12 on board the Trlncess Irene, on
his way to Algecelras.
Germany Avoids Friction.
BERLIN. Jan. 6. The German Foreign
I offlre book on Morocco, w Inch will be laid
i before tne neicns.ag next wee, contains
scarcely more than n tenth of tho docu
ments relating to tne sunjeri.
; i"!i"r'lZ!''? IT'LZT'
Everything of an Irritating nature will
be omitted, as it is regarded as unwls
to publish on the eve of the Moroccan
conference documents that might causa
strife or produce a mood among the rep
resentative powers unsulted to calm dis
cussion. It ts believed that France's policy
has not been the same; that an important
change took place when France asked the
sultan to sign the treaty presented by
M. Tallladler and that lad that treaty
been signed and supported by the agree
ment between Frame. Great Britain and
Spain It would have been difficult to safe
guard German Interests. The book will
also make a further exposition of Ger-
! ma' Ioli y ,'ar5!' France during th
' recent discussions, but lt will not contain
' any sensational matter.
