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." designed to take children to Canada, almost " without number. One thing which has not been disputed regarding the sending out of these children to the colonies la the fact that almost Invariably they do grow up to make useful citlcens.

( jl OIL TEST NOT SATISFACTORY Official Allege Coal Man Proven Cheaper and Better far Fuel. ,,,,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 said: "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 economy." FIGHT ON AN ANIMAL "TRUST" Independent Dealers Will Strnssle with Society Said to Be Formed la America. LONDON, Jan. 10. (Special Cablegram to The Bee.)

TEMPEST IN TEAPOT OVER NEW TREATY Defeat of Ministry an Modae Vivendi with Spain Example ef Sadden .Action la Itallaa Polities. 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. Government Defeated. 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 for the measure. The discussion raised over the ratifica tion ot the modus Vivendi between Italy and Spain affords a good example of the suddenness with which a tempest will often assail an Italian miniKtry from an unexpected quarter.

CAPTURE MORE SEATS British Liberals Will Hate ( lear Majority in Heme of omssens. GREAT GAINS MDE IN SCOTLAND Strongest Fortresses or Uiieoiim Inraded bj the Popilar VoTiment. IRISH PARLIAMENT IS PREDICTED Statement that New Body Will Be Sitting at Dublin Wi tun Twe Tears. CHAMBERLAIN MAY TAKE LEADERSHIP Rumor that . Blrmlagthaia Maa Will Head Oppoalllon, aa Balfour la Still Innrovlded with a Seat. 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 . fP'-jto" 7oV' wltn IheeVt wo" v 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 J ct t Dnke of Marlborough Defeated. Out ot forty-one returns this morn j Ing the liberals take twenty-one seats. , of wnicn twelve were captured irom tne 1 unionists, including Woodstock, where the Marlborough Influence did not suffice to stem the antl-conservatlve flood. Among . the unionists who lost their seata la Sir , William Hart Dike, conservative,, farther I member of the Dartford division of Kent, j who was president of the council frpm WI to Wi. Lieutenant Arthur H Lee, conservative, former civil lord ot the admiralty, whe was British military attache at Washing ton and later attache with the American army during the 8panlsh-Amerlcan war. i has been elected fer the South or Farshaia division of Hampshire by a greatly re duced majority.
