LONDON, Feb. 23.-(SpeclaL) Mr. Lloyd
George, despite the fact that he Is an ardent
free trader, haa announced during the
course of an Interview that he Intends to
Introduce a bill which will be a good
measure of protection for British manu
"Thousands of foreigners apply for pat
ents in mis country in the course Of a
year," he said. "I do not object to that.
but they use them for the purpose of pre
venting any one from setting up an In
dustry or utilizing that patent In thii
country. That I consider to be an Intoler
able abuse of the privilege conferred upon
"I would confer the privilege upon for
eigners If they would use It on British soil
and I would aay to them: 'If you are com
ing and if you seek protection and special
protection from the laws of our country,
it must be for the benefit or the country
that confers that protection.' I would
give them patents In this country, but 1
would compel them to work here.
"I hope to Introduce a bill next session
for the purpose of simplifying that pro
cess." Mr. Lloyd-George added that he would
approach business problems from a purely
nonparty standpoint, and he would expect
criticism In the same spirit.
If on the fiscal question he found he was
wrong the sooner he was put right the
better. He was going to get the facts and
If they went against his theories the sooner
they are smashed the better. '
He also announced that the Board of
Trade was about to strens h-n ' a Int- r
llgence department that the consular ser
vice was to be made more uaelul, and that
special investigations were being made into

It changes the more It remains the same
thing. Raisull's stronghold Is In the hills
of Zlnyet. Some accounts have the strong
hold completely destroyed, others pave It
that the brigand has succeeded in making
the situation stronger than ever before.
It Is said In more quarters than one that
the brigand haa friends at court who are
by no means anxious that his career
should be brought to a close.
"The regular army," Its professional
labors ended, settled down to Its favorite
occupation of looting, and far from being
content with picking up all that could be
aeized at Zlnyet raided the neighboring
villages, assaulted women and carried off
children of both sexes to sell to the first
bidder, killing all who attempted to inter
fere with them. Commissariat arrange
ments hardly exist In the Moorish army
as a expeditionary force Is supposed to
live upon the villages through which It
passes. The progress of the sultan's sol
diers through the country around Tangier
has deepened the feelings ot disloyalty
that are never far removed from the hill
It Is a significant fact that Europeans
are warned against going outside the towns
after sunset. Soldiers have straggled back
from the hills to sell loot openly In the
streets of Tangier, and much of this prop
erty has been stolen from Innocent vil
lage rr who wnre In no way associated with
Ralsuli. though some were killed and others
were sent In chains to make "the bag"
look larger.

Proceedings of Last Annual Meeting;
Preserved In a Large
The National Municipal League haa Is
sued In bound form the proceedings of the
twelfth annual convention hold at Atlantla
City, N. J., last April. The volume com
prises 602 pages and is fully Indexed for
reference. The work was edited by Clinton
Rogers Woodruff, secretary of the leajrue.
North American building, Philadelphia, to
whom inquiries on the subject may ba
This volume comprises the largest record
of the proceedings of the league's annual
sessions, but the merit of size Is due to the
fact that this year'es proceedings were of
an unusually interesting and Important
character. The papers and discussions
covered the widest possible range and were
brilliantly Illuminating In their direct and
practical bearing upon the problems of
municipal government, although the annual
meetings of this body have long enjoyed
pre-eminence along these lines. Not only
did the program Include papers of a sug
gestive and recommendatory character,
but many citations of practical experience)
In solving some of the most perplexing;
difficulties attending the administration nt
cities. Chief among the former was a
paper by Hon. Charles J. Bonaparte, secre
tary of the navy, who Is president ot the
league, on "Why We Have Unsatisfactory
Public Servants and How We Can Get
Good Ones" a subject which appeal
potently to nearly every municipality la
the country and among the latter are vari
ous papers giving results of practical opera
tions along suggested lines of municipal
in the papers; so also are municipal ac
tion of public utilities Is given large spaca
In the papers; so also are mulclpal ac
counting, the police question, the control
Of public service corporations, and other
subjects of high Importance. In addition
to a full discussion Of the formal papers.
Is a detailed report of the "Round Table
Conference," known as a feature of th
league's annual -meetings, which afford op
portunities for free "heart-to-heart" talks
touching matters of pressing interest.
The direct Influence of this league upon
the practical operation of municipal gov
ernment In this country haa been surpris
ing. The work of Its committee on mu
nicipal program, perfected at the Columbus
meeting. In 1899, has been adopted In part
by many municipalities which since that
time have had new charters pr important
amendments to existing ones. The praoi
tlcal value of Its system of uniform mu
nicipal accounting, on which the committee
Is still at work. Is attested by the state
ment of a member ot a leading Arm of ac
countants, that "today there are no lesa
than eighty cities using financial state
ments bearing the stamp of the work ot
the league, and the United States census
have made use of them In the collection
and classification of municipal statistics."
The league has been Instrumental In having
instruction In municipal government In
cluded in the educational courses of col
leges, universities and public schools. Ths
work of Its committee on the relation of
pjbllo service corporations to municipali
ties is sure to be valuable In Its reconunen
daUons, as the committee will consider the
question from a severely practical atand
ard, and without suggestion of the dema
goglsm that Invariably attends the at
tempts of political agencies to solve this
great problem.
The annual dues for membership In the
National Municipal league are $5, and mem
bera are enUtled to these privileges: Par
