LONDON. Jan. I0.-tSpeell Cablegram to
The Bee.)-Never before In the hlatory of
the British empire has there been a time
when the air wai as full of colonization
schemes and epilgratlon propositions l
the present. Co where one will these thine
are being discussed with an earnestness and
a vigor which ought to bring results. Pos
sibly It ia the fact that never before has
the problem of the unemployed pressed
home with so much force upon Imperial,
official and charitable England, and coloni
zation schemes and emigration projects may
he regarded aa only one form for a relief of
the pressure of p ipulatlon-one outlet forc1
by the Iron law of necessity.
Tho queen herself has led in this work of
trying to find work for those without work
homes for those without homes. So serious
was this march of the unemployed through
the atreeta of London that It ia an opn
secret In official circles that It was the fact
that these conditions, not the theories of Sir
II. Campbell-Bannerman. confronted him
which caused Mr. Balfour to willingly lay
down the relna of office as conservative
prime minister of the empire. Not even the
absorbing- economic problems connected
with the general elections have caused a
let-up In the discussions of emigration and
colonisation. Indeed, It would appear as If
the political situation had only Intensified
the eagerness on the part of some of the
members of the "submerged tenth" to leave
an eagerness which la shared by the so
called upper classes, who are equally
anxious to have them leave.
AU Coloalea Interested.
It would appear aa though every colony
which Great Britain possesses haa IU colo
nisation society or emigration organization
hard at work. Even Ireland haa been swept
from end to end by a storm of Indignation
roused by the report that the English were
about to use that Island aa a dumping
ground for the "scum" and "offscourings'
of London. Talk of an. Anglicised Ireland
is certainly Interesting oa both sides of the
lrlstvoea. Then there art "baby colonies."

OIL TEST NOT SATISFACTORY
Official Allege Coal Man Proven
Cheaper and Better
,,,,NION jn 2n.,f.,riiii Cablegram n
The Hee.l In raval circles It I stated that
purpose of the tests was to demonstrate the
efficiency of oil and coal burned in conjunc
tion. It was found that a thin fire of north
country coal sprayed with crude petroleum
under great pressure developed high ca
lorific powers and maintained steam welt.
As far as can he ascertained at the present
time, however, the experts still think that
oil fuel, either by Itself or mixed with any
other species of coal, remains distinctly In
ferior to Welsh steam coal. However a
considerable degree of success has attended
liquid firing of late In the navy, and It Is
being very generally adopted for auxiliary
steam purposes. In cruising at economic
speed It is very ureful. One great difficulty
consists In the regulation of the combustion
1 1 rn ,
eo as to overcome the dense noxious fumes
given off. One naval engineer who has
given a great deal of study to the subject
"At hlrh speed oil is altogether Inferior
to Welsh coal, wh'eh In the opinion of most
naval experts will never be beaten. The
Idea which has been mooted that the Intro
duction of oil throughout the fleet would
mean a saving of 60 per cent to the tax
payer In the matter of fuel Is absolutely
erroneous. Oil, as the matter stamls today.
costs relatively more than coal. Of course
new inventions may chance all of this, but
dealing with conditions aa they are todav
the economics are all on the side of coal.
Therefore to save fto per cent on the naval
coal bill, as has been susTgcFted. by putting
on fin per cent In the shape of oil fuel would
appear to be the queerest kind of queer

TEMPEST IN TEAPOT OVER NEW TREATY
Defeat of Ministry an Modae Vivendi
with Spain Example ef Sadden
.Action la Itallaa
ROME, Jan. 2. (Special Cablegram to
The Bee.) The relations existing between
Italy and Spain appear to be he Interna
tional subject uppermost In the mind? of
the people of Italy Just at present. First
of all there is the n-port that the king of
Spain has expressed a desire to complete
is tour of the European courts by visiting
the Quirlnal on condition that such an ar
rangement can be made with the Vatican
that he will lie allowed to visit the Pope
and also be received with the honors due
his station. As is well known, after 1ST0
Pope .eo XIII forbaiie all Catholic rulers
to be guests of the Quirlnal on pain of ex
communication. Prince Ferdinand of Bul
garia and M. rioubet infringed on this prohi
bition, thus drawing a protest from the
Holy See to all Catholic states. The king
of Spain being more closely In touch with
the Vatican than either of the rulers men-
ioned, naturally wishes to avoid nil com-
ilicatlons. and it is osserteu that mice
very powerful Spaniards. Cardinal Merry
del Vai. papal secretary of state; Cardinal
Vives y Tuto. and Father Martin, general
of the. Jesuits, are working to satisfy the
desire of their king, which can only be done
by rinding means to safeguard the suscepti
bilities or the papacy. If. however, the re
sult can bo accomplished It will Indicate a
closer coming together between the church
and state than anything that has occurred
since tho downfall of the states of the
church In Italy.
Sentiment Created hy White Book.
' According to those best posted In Vatican
clrclea, the White Book Issued by the Vati
can vindicates the Holy See, showing mat
in the mihunderstandlngs with France the
wrongs were on the aide of the latter, while
the Vutlcan constantly did its best to avoia
rupture. One of the most Important
Dolnta in the White Book Is regarding the
recall of the French ambassador. M. Nlxard,
from Rome, the Vatican considering that
the assertion that Cardinal Merry del Val
did not wish to answer the ambassador's
request waa a mere pretext. Another part
of the nub cation refers to m. ujuki
riito . Rome-ajjd ; then nlaCsued by
the Holy Bee, wnicn, inrougn n uuiot.-
tion on the part of the principality ot Mo
naco, appeared ln the Paris Humanite. thus
disclosing the fact that there was a dif
ference between the protests sent to rans
and those sent to other states. The Vati
can maintains that this difference was aug
geated by the desira to remain on good
terms with France.
Just at a time that it began to look
as though a kind of an entente cordials
might be secured, not along semlnv.-ntal
lines, such as might be encouraged by the
visit of the king of Spain to the klr.g
of Italy, the Catholic church, acticUng
to the proposition, the Italian government
Itself received a decided blow in the Ce
real of a favored ineusure. It Is true
that In the Chamber, Just before the de
cisive vote on the modus vlvendl . 1th
Spain on which the government was de
feated, the Forlls ministry had received
a vote of confidence by a majority of
sixty-one. The debate lasted five days ai.d
he defense of the measure by the minis-
ters, Signor Rava. Signor Tittonl, Sig.ior
Majoraua and BIgnor Fortia was cpread
over four days. Scarcely any a'Unipt
waa made on Uie part of the opposition
to adduce any serious evidence In support
of their attack, the main argument of
the speakers being an apeal to tne sym
pathy of tha Chamber on behalf of tho
hardly tried southern provinces, whose
wine Industry was represented as '.heat-
ened with ruin In vaiu Signor Rava and
Signor Tittonl declared the actual facts
of the ease.
ln spite of all- that has be-n raid the
result of the vole can only be regarded
as a defeut for the government at least
a moral victory for the opposition. Ths
majority of sixty-one with which the
Chamber reiterated ita conlidrnce In the
Fonts ministry in uo way compensated
tor the sweeping majority of 1S3 with
: which it rejected the modus viv.-ndi
I Conjointly and separately the ministry
i had asserted its responsibility
The discussion raised over the ratifica

and Spain affords a good example of the
suddenness with which a tempest will

Ne!s Iusten, a salonnkeeiaer. wss shot
and almost instantly killed by two holdup
men In his saloon at Hot Cuming street. M
about 11 :tf o'clock Saturday night. After
rifling the cash register the robbers escaped
from the vicinity, leaving Lausten lying
where he fell behind the bar.
The police have one. man under arrest
whom they have reason to believe was con
nected with the murder and robbery.
There were two witnesses to tha crime,
one of whom, Henry Boney, was in the
saloon at the time and waa kept covered by
a revolver, and the other, Ben Perslnger,
!!) Isard street, saw what' was going on
through the window, and then rati across
the street and gave the alarm. According
to the story of Boney, the men entered by
the front door and passing to the bar. or-
dered three drinks. While Lausten was fill
ing their order they both pulled revolvers,
which they waved In the air. but said noth
ing until Lausten started to walk away.
They then called to him, and as he turnel
deliberately shot him down In cold blood.
He fell with a bullet through the breast '
Boney started to go out. but one of the rob. ,
bers commanded him to stay, saying they I
were not through yet, and while one of !
them compelled him to keep his hands above
his head tho other emptied the contents of
the cash register Into his pocket. They then
went out of the rear door and disappeared.
Honey hastily left the room and made his
wny to a telephone and notified the police
station. Meanwhile Tersinger Jind looked ln
at the door on Twenty-first street and also
the wlndom- on Cuming street, and seeing
what whs happening Inside, hurried across
the street to tne sioon bf Hans Nelson and
excitedly told what he had seen. Nelson
immediately called up the police and then
locked up his place.
Nels Lundell, 1412 North Twenty-ninth
street, who was in tha saloon and heard
Perslnger's story, went over to the scene

of a man behind the bar. The sound fright

the effect that any officer of the rank namel

LONDON. Jan. 20.-Wlthln the last eight
days the political complexion of the United
Kingdom has been completely changed by
the tide of liberalism, which even now la
higher than the most sanguine radical dared
to hope for or predict. The new Parliament
will be overwhelmingly liberal.
I'p to this time the total number of mem
bers elected Is 4i, of whom If? sre liberals,
114 unionists. 40 lahorites, 7S nationalists and
1 socialist. Till 1 axes 190 seals still vacant.
The liberals thus for have gained no less
than 177 seats, counting the labor galna as
liberal or government gains, and If the same
proportion Is kept up for the remaining ISO
ceats the liberals will hae 407 votes In the
next Parliament, to which may he added
those of 12 lnhorltes, 1 socialist and S3 na
tionalists, which would give Prime Minister
Campbell-nannerman 533 votes, against 137
for the conservatives.
While this calculation concerning the re
sults In the !! vacant seats Is entirely
speculative It Is not In any respect Impos-
slbln of realization, nor could it be more ex
traordinary or startling than any of the re
sults dcclnrcd during the last few days.
In Ireland and Scotland.
Ireland remains practically unchanged.
The nationalists have plucked one seat from
the solid northeast corner. The liberals
have broken Into tho tory stronghold of
Scotland, with prospects of other remark
able successes, while, as already noted, the
great fortresses of unionism during the last
ten years have been rased before a storm
of undreamed of liberal sentiment or of op
position to the unionist policy.
With the exception of Birmingham, which
..nnmlntoK. controlled hv Joaenh Cham.
. . .
Dcnain, an tne great centers nave snown n
tendency to change from the old order. Mr.
Balfour will probably remain an outsider
until he Is given a chance In a bye-electlon,
though possibly some safe unionist seat
may be relinquished in his favor before the
end of next week. It ia understood that
several efforts in this direction hava been
' made, but without euceesa Such reports
Bs these, it Is believed, are materially weak-
enlng the prestige of the accredited leader
1 tlons thus far Is the labor members elected.
The last Parliament could claim but seven
, laborlte members, while up to the
Irish Parliament Predicted.
One of the most prominent politicians In
England said to the Associated Press to
day: It is useless to minimize the present
revolution and we might as well begin to
taVe a new view of the situation. In my

Assuredly John Redmond, leader of tha'
nationalist party, and Prime Minister
Canipbell-Bannermnn have reached a work-
Ing agreement, and It Is Inconceivable that
pon the Imperial Parliament and at least
try the experiment of administering Irish
affairs under the conditions which have
changed in the last century.
The elections will be over before the end
of next week, the last contest being set
for January But so far aa the liberal
government is concerned, its life can now
be measured, not as was predicted prior
to the elections, by months or a few years,
but by the limitations of the septennial
