honor. Ho will take over hla new duties

After spending a brief period at the
official residence which he occupies as
president of the senate, M. Falllercs wont

Loubet, who warmly congratulated the
The national assembly met at 1 o'clock
this afternoon In the Congress han of the
Royal palace at Versailles for the election
of a president of the republic. The as
sembly consists nominally of 891 deputies
and 300 senators, but owing to deaths,, ill
ness and the passage of some of '.he
deputies to the senate, leaving their seats
vacant, the number, present was decreased
to about 860, making 430 votes necessary to
elect a new president. The greatest inter
est was manifested in the proceedings,
which, however, were very prolonged.
The members of the assembly voted in
alphabetical 'order. Those waiting their
turn discussed excitedly the prospects of
their favorites. Although several candi
dates are mentioned for the presidency in
succession, to M. Loubet, including M.
Fallieres, president of tho Senate; M. Dou
mer, president of the Chamber of Deputies;
M. Sarrlen, former minister of Justice, and
M. Leon Bourgeois, the former premier.
The real contest Is between M. Fallieres
and M. Doumor. M. Fallieres has the gen
eral support of the advanced socialist and
radical groups, constituting the famous
party which sustained the Combes minis
try. M. Poumer, however, is a formidable
opponent, whose election to the presidency
of the Chamber of Deputies last year, after
breaking away from his former connection
with the famous party previously referred
to, gave the first blow to M. Combes. The
old liberal republicans belonging to the
center and tho conservatives, . who then
voted for M. Douber, still eeem inclined
to continue their allegiance. ' According to
lobby gossip tliere aoem any UkeU
hood" on ttrls occasion of a surprise in the
shape of a candidate appearing at the last
moment and upsetting all the plans made,
s was the case when the late 8adi Carnot
was elected president on the second bal
lot, securing an unexpected majority over
the then favorite, the late M. Ferry. A
double ballot also occurred when the late
Felix Faure defeated II. Brlsson. the for
mer premier.

Then when the first figures M. Fallieres,

dence to Indicate the methods employed to
wipe out the family. Whether the victims
were shot or killed by other means cannot
be told at present. I'p to a late hour only
charred fragments of two of the victims

lolonlst. Gala Bat
LONDON, Jan. 17.--.The most prominent
feature of today's electlbn returns Is the
wholly unexpected stand made by Birming
ham. Not only were all of Joseph Chamber
lain's seven candidates returned, but Mr.
Chamberlain himself secured a majority of
5,0G), while the majority of the others aver-
uged S.Ot).
Even ullowlng that the liberal candidates
were not very strong, as the seats were
practically uncontested at the last general
election, and though the liberal organisa
tion was not as good as In other parts of
the country, the results at Birmingham are
of the highest importance. They prove the
groundlessness of the liberal contention that
this general election has killed the fiscal
agitation for a generation to come. Besides
showing the unabated confidence of Birm
ingham in Mr. Chamberlain the results
there go also to conform with what al
ready has been noticed In Isolated contests,
that the candidates who openly pressed ,
protectionist leanings hod good support and j
in some cases were victorious. ,
Chamberlain May Take Leadership,
The outcome at Birmingham affords a
striking contrast. While Mr. Balfour stand,
discredited as a leader, with his supporters
all swallowed up and himself angrily crltl-

Issues from the contest with flying colors. ,
His courage to a largo extent Justifies him
to persevere In his agitation and ha Is In a
position to argue that It was Mr. Balfour's
timidity which lost the campaign.
A considerable section of the unionists on
the protectionist side had predicted some
such result and It Is now hinted that the
party must In future look toward Birming
ham for hope and guidance. It Is too late
for the results at Birmingham to have any
great effect on the campaign as a whole.
Liberal Make Dig Gains.
Many of today's polls will not be declared
until tomorrow, but those published tonight
show that the liberal tide still runs strong.
London has gone distinctly liberal, no less
than twelve seats showing liberal gains.
While the total gains of the liberals for
today number twenty-two, the unionists
have made only one solitary gain. Viscount
Castlereagh having wrested the seat from
the liberals at Maidstone. Portsmouth,
which had previously been represented by
two unionists, today elected two liberals,
and this despite the fact that a fifth candi
date, a laborite, th eatened to split the lib
eral rote. The laborite, however, eime third
with a very large vote, the unionists being
at the bottom of the list.
The members already elected are distrib
uted aa follows:
Liberals, 167; unionists, 73; labo rites, 31;
nationalists, 50. ,
Of the twenty-three London seats ed
today sixteen were won by the liberals,
twelve of them being; net gains. .
The present Indications are that former
Premier Balfour will not seek another seat
in Parliament until after the elections,
when one of the newly elected members
will probably 'retire In his favor, so as to
allow Mr. Balfour to try to enter the house
by means of a by-election. Mr. Chamber
lain tonight Issued the following message
to the electors: -
Well done, Birmingham. My own people
have justified my contldence. I am deeply
grateful to all who have assisted In win

WASHINGTON, Jan. 17. In response tt
the Bulser resolution passed by the house
Secretary Metcalf of the Department of
Commerce and Labor today sent to the
house the report of Special Immigrant In
spector Marcus Braun, which deals at great
length with the character of Immigrants
coming to tills country and the attitude of
European governments upon the matter.
Mr. Braun declares that he has uncontro
vertible evidence that while the number of
aliens shipped to this country who are
legally Inadmissible because of disease Is
diminishing, Immigrants Inadmissible for
other reasons are constantly brought Into
the country In large numbers "by the con
certed action of some European govern
ments And steamship agencies, by bankers
and schemers of all sort." I
He declares that while these governments
hnve laws ostensibly Intended to restrict
Immigration, Instead of doing so they ac
tually encourage It by keeping alive "the
patriotic spirit for the fatherlsnd In the
minds of thesai colonies" by representing
that unless thy adhere to the principles of
homo patriotism their governments would
leave them without protection In barbaric
Amerlra." This Is particularly true, Mr.
Braun says, in Italy and Hungary. He as
serts that theso countries regnrd this coun
try In the attitude of adjuncts or colonies
of their owii.'aiid by their instructions and
teachings to Immigrants benefit accrues to
the home government to the detriment of
this country. He cites tho fact that 850,000,
foo was sent last year from the Vnlted
States to Austria-Hungary alone from these
Immigrants. "Not a single promise which
the new Hungarian Immigrant taw gniran
toes has been kept. I experienced the be
wildering spectacle," Mr. Braun 'says, "of
hundreds upon hundreds of agents licensed
by the Hungarian government carrying on
and conducting an almost unheard of cam
paign to get Immigrants ln direct and open
violation of their laws."
Laws Systematically Broken.
These laws, he says, are nothing but a
farce and systematic violation la licensed,
and privileged by the Hungarian government.-
Myv-Braim "narrates at length hie In
terviews with Hungarian." otlclals 'and
quotes Premier Tisza as saying ,that bills
Introduced ln congress tending to restrict
Immigration are regarded as unfriendly acts
toward tho government of Hungary.
He states that In order to discourage
Hungarians from becoming Ajnerlcan citi
zens the precaution is taken to advocate
; me estanusnment m tne V nitea Btat
the establishment In the Vnlted States of
Hungarian homes, schools, churches and
f..f. ... " Tul .' ' ' . IZll .. ."

tna. of the Armenians he savs that thev

Tuikl8hiftws. This scheme Consists

large number' of Armenians emigrating tu
the United States, and as soon as they
have earned sufficient money for their
need they return supplied with American
citizenship papers and are continually con
spiring against the Turkish government un
der the protection of American citizenship.
Eatenslvo Naturalisation Praads.
The same is true In Syria and Palestine.
In this connection he quotes from, the gov
ernor of Mount Lebanon, saying, "If this
i constant travel from Syria to and from
lne fnucd States does not cease 'soon
tne T-nitej states had better annex tho
l)rovlnce 0f Lebanon, as at present
are more American citizens there

Slid adding, "God forbid that the Ameri

government, he says, similar to the govern-
j ment of Hungary, to keep a strong watch
and surveillance over their people In Amer

objective points, namely "to send Its all
