ROME. Feb. I (Special Cablegram to The
Bee.) Some of the really significant move
ments In world politics may be expected to
emanate from the, Vatican during the next
twelve months. First, there is the vexed
question of the relations of the church and
state in Italy. This Is liable to be forced to
the front by the visit of the king of Spain
in connection with his approaching mar
riage. The king of Spain Is very anxious to
visit his royal relative, the king of Italy
Being an earnest Roman Catholic he does
not desire to do anything which will in any
fashion wound the feelings of the head of
the church. Hence efforts are being made
to find out Just how far the king of Spain
may go in this matter of establishing more
friendly relations with the king of Italy.
Ever since the downfall of the states of
the church and the temporal power of the
pope, while Protestant rulers have been
free, to come and go at will Roman Catholic
monarchs, as a general thing, have been
obliged to be rather diplomatic, and some
kings have even preferred to avoid Italy as
they would avoid a pestilence Infested coun
try, fearing that their very presence might
tend to stir up strife. Hence it has hap
pened that some of the real questions of
clerical and political etlquet have never
been taken up for solution, and it remain. i
to' be seen whether they are capable of
Then there are questions of vast Import
ance growing out of the extension of the
work of the church In America and other
parts of the world. One reason for this ex
tension has been the vast Increase in Italian
emigration to the new world. The Vatican,
while In no way responsible for this shift
ing of population from the old world to the
new, in the capacity of supreme pastor of
souls is bound to take cognizance of such a
world-wide movement. It is said that one
of the results will be the creation In the
near future of several new American car
dinals. Admirers of Archbishop Ireland
here in Rome are confident that he will be
among those honored..
French Question Perplexing.
Perhaps the most burning question of the
. hour In ntoricaJ .olrulaa la tha adjustment of
relations with France on somo kind of a
basis. In fact the subject uppermost In the
minds of the clericals at the present time Is
what may be termed the fn-st volume of Im
portance Issued during the first decade of
this twentieth century the white book. It
is an exposition, supported and Justified by
documents. Issued by the holy see on the
subject of the Reparation of the state from
the church In France. According to the Oh
servatore Romano the purpose of the publi
cation Is to demonstrate to the w-holo civil
ized world how false was the thesis main
tained by the French partisans of separa
tion that separation was after all the detre
of the holy see or that it was rendered In
evitable by its attitude. The object is to
make it perfectly plain that the responsi
bility for this separation-should full upon
the politicians of France, who wanted it at
any cost and at all hazards.
What the separation really means Is ninde
most plain In the comments of the ctvilts
Cathollca on the subject of the white book
of the Vatican. Clvljta Catholloa says that
the separation Implies thnt the France
which governs that Is to sny the republic
which Is Impersonated In very restricted
number of It dignitaries separates Itself
from the Roman Catholic church, renounces
Its dogmas and proscribes Its symbols, de
taches its ministers from the great tree of
the state, confines Its worship within the
private limits of the churches, and with
legul rapine It arrogates to Itself the prop
erty of the churches, and at a not far ois
tunt time it destines the use of them to the
oalabrutton of Masonic gatherings.
In tha first place the first three chapters
of the white book point out and denounce
the policy of -he French government. The
tw sucecedliiK chapters upset the pretext

LONDON. Feb. 3. (Special Cablegram to
The Itee.j-London politicians have evi
dently Mken a leaf from the methods of
Tammany ball, in one respect, at least.
When the M.teg are once In the boxes
they stay there and there appears to be
no way of opening the boxes and getting
out the votes, even though It is admitted
on all hands that the voters had no right
The most noted case in point was perhaps
that of the only woman in all Iondon who
voted so far as known for the Parlia
mentary candidates during the recent gen
eral elections. And like the famous "only
woman Mason," she appears to have "but
ted Into the game" without being "butted
out" again and without appearing to know
exactly what she was doing.
In the first place her name was mis
leading. She is Miss Alwyn Bussey, and
the local politicians appear to have thought
"Alwyn" was the name of a man. She Is
of German ,1-scent, her father being a
naturalized Kngltshman. She Is a teacher
of singing and the place where she voted
at the polls was Kast Maryletmne. Telling
the story herself she said:
"How did It happen? It Is hard to say.
For eight years I have lived here In my
house (The Studio, Welheck house. No. W
Wells street). One day a man came to me
and said: 'You have a vote.' It appeared
that my name was on the register. Was
It for me to quarrel with the authorities?
mentary election that I have teen through
and naturally I didn't know much about It.
"Lord Robert Cecil sent a canvasser. He
asked In a loud voice:
T. T - T7..... .. Ir.",' 1
i. ; Z , ll
is no Mr. Itussej. I
I answered: 'There
am Alwyn Bussey. If that is any Infor
mation for you.' With that I closed the
door and left the man standing speechless.
I didn't want to talk with him all day
and he really wasn't very civil.
"Then his opponent. Mr. Lnngdun. sent a
canvasser. He was a n!ce man a nal
politician. 1 think. He said: 'Alwyn Bus
sey, I presume?' I said. 'Yes.' He smiled
and added, 'Well, yon have got a vote and
we will send a carriage for you. With that
he smiled and went away.
"On the dny of the lection the carriage
came, and I couldn't resist getting Into it
and going for the ride. It was such a
frolic. I was driven to the I.itile Titehfield
polling station. There was a policeman at
the door, and when he (taw me get out
of the carriage l.e waved his hand Just as
they do when thiy try to stop traffic.
"1 said: 'What ia the matter, my good
man? I am going in to vote. He looked at
me as though he were paralyzed with sur
prise, and then porhitps concluding that
there miKht be one woman in the country
entitled to vote, he fell back and s.ilil noth
ing more, allowing me to p ss. sort of re
spoctfullike. So I walked hi.
"The presiding officer declined to issue a
polling paper. I said. 'My name is on that
register and I am going to vote.' He
seemed impressed, then suid. 'Walt a little,'
and then there was a consultation.
"Then a young man with a red face came
UP to me and said. 'Y'ou can vote,! and
issued a polling ticket, and I voted. But
before ho would give me the ticket he tried
to coax me' and terijporize.' "Won't "yon
please come around this ufteriioon?' he In
quired anxiously. And I of course replied:
"No, .1 shall bo very busy this afternoon.
I am here to vote now and I am going lo
vote now." And I did. .
"I don't know how my name came on the
register. No doubt they mistook nie for a
man, but in that case they made a big
mistake. I thought It was funny at the
time imd I still consider It amusing, but I
hope that I won't get my 1-nr-dldiitc into any

said, settled affirmatively the constitution

He regretted the president's change of at

a judicial function, he said, lo say where

A1GECIRAS, Feb. S.-The conference on
Mui ocean rfiorms hus now b en freed of
most of the minor questions before it. and
in.is itself fast upproaching the main la
sue, wliieh ni,Kts on who shall control
tue iollce of Morocco.
The delegates to the conference hava
shown lncr.asing anxiety at the approach
of this issue, knowing the Intense reeling
11 has aroused between France and Oer
muny. KtToits are being made to secure
an accord belore tile question reaches t;ie
open conference Hnd tliereLy avui en
open controversy and a possible deadlock.
On the one hand France wants control
of the semi-military police and on the
other hand (Jennaii objects lo French
control on the ground that it would make
Fiance the virtual master of Morocco's
political future. These positions are so
radically opposed as lo appear to be almosi
irreconcilable, yet the neutral delegates
are alr.nuously continuing their pacllle
olliies toward finding a common ground
acceptable to both countries.
Some Compromise Projects.
Some of the comprise projects are ou
the following genera f lines:
The Hrst is to leave the police to tha
sultan of Morocco, thus avoiding tier
many s objection to French control and
that of r ranee to Intel national contiul.
Tnis compromise is distaste! ui to t rants
bill tne neutral delegates are seeking to
reconcile rrencii opposition to it bv point
ing out thut the allium would nave to
reiy ujion France lo oihcer, instruct and
discipline Hie police.
Anotner Compromise vaguelv put
forward is to gl 8p;.iu of somo
otner of the powers a share witu
Fiance In Hie organization of the
IKillce. Tiiis again meets witn the opposi
tion 10 having France participate in any
control 01 the police, bull anotner com
pro.i.ise. apparently having tno approval
of Cierinany, is to institute an international
police for a limited and experimental
period, and If the experiment laiis, France
will then be in a putiiiion to assume tne
oitaniguuon 01 tne ixnice. France, how
ever, snows no nii-posliion to accept the
plan for an lnternut.on.il police system,
even for an experimental period.
It is expected that the discussion of the
question of a state bank may aid in a
solution of the troubles, for Germany la
willing to give France a Mrung hand -ovw
Morocco's nuances. Franca may yield con
trol of the police for the present, leaving
the future to decide which power must
provide the force to control Morocco.
The Moroccan conference held a two
hours' session today, resulting In the defi
nite rejection of the plan proposed by tha
Moors for fhe reform of the Moroccuu
tariff and the determination to frame a
customs system more in accord with tha
views of the foreign powers.
The conference further decided to pre
pare a project to overcome Morocco's ant:,
