LONDON, Dec. 4. The whole of Great
Britain la Immersed In ' the political cam
paign which has been Inaugurated by the
refusal of the House of Lords to consent
to the budget. The country Is divided into
two great camps, composed of those who
support the lords' action and those who
contend that the House of Commons must
have absolute control of the finances of
the nation. There are, of course, man
other Issues, such as tariff reform versus
free trade, but these are being; pushed Into
the background by the conflict between
the two houses. While the various local
organisations are busy selecting candidates
and preparing for the contests In their re

parties are carrying on a general cam

action of the lords, which was one of
most notable that has ever been held

'thered In Trafalgar square and cheered
radical speakers, who condemned In un
measured terms the members of the upper

The only divergent note here, as else
where, 'cam from the suffragists, who,
after a term of comparative quiet, again
started to Indulge In attempts to break up
the radical meetings. The Trafalgar square
crowd, however, . was too great for their
efflcts to have any effect. They were mope
successful at Southport, where by climbing
to a roof and shouting through the sky
light they succeeded in interrupting Winston
Spencer Churchill's meeting, and at Leith,
- where, aided by roughs, they created a
diversion by attempting to storm a meet
ing which Sid Edward Qrey, the foreign
secretary, was addressing.
Foiled by the Leith police, who charged
the crowd with batons, the women got their
revenge by hurling bricks through the win
dows of the public buildings. Secretary
Oiey, whose speech was not Interrupted to
any extent, spoke strongly for the reforma

He added that the lord talked of re

WASHINGTON. D. C, Dec. 4. Speclal
Telegram.) Senator Burkett Is boiling mad
over a recent article which appeared in
the Lincoln Star which virtually charges
him with using the franking privilege for
the transportation of personal apparel.
Five or more boxes which the govern
ment provides for the transportation of of
fice matters, bearing the well known Bur
kett signature were landed In Lincoln in
due course. A reporter for the Star aaw
great sensation In these boxes and he
charged Burkett with transporting his
household goods, to say nothing of cloth
ing, etc., In these aforesaid boxes.
Senator Burkett has gone after the edi
tor of the Star, hammer and tongs. Fol
lowing Is a letter which the senior senator
from Nebraska mailed to the editor of the
Lincoln Dally Star today:
"Dear Sir: Somebody has sent me a
copy of your paper of November 25, charg
ing me with sending wearing apparel and
personal effect under my official frank.
While It has always been a rule of mine
since being In public life not to reply to
newspaper criticisms, nevertheless, I can
not let go unchallenged your statement
that I have defrauded the government by
abusing the franking privilege.
"Neither you, nor any member of your
force saw Into those boxen, and therefore
had no right to tell the people that there
wan clothing or anything else Improper In
them. Tou might a well have said they
contained dynamite or opium.
"Two young men packed, those boxes
Mr. Clifford W. Leroy of Falrbury and
Mr. Don L. Runnell of Lincoln. They are
honest and would have told you or shown
you what waa In those boxes, If you had
asked them. These young men made the
statement then and I mak It now, that
there was nothing In the boxe except of
ficial files. The boxes were furnished by
the government for just the purpose's for
which they were used, that is for trans
porting the official files back and forth
between Washington and home when we
have to go. In this particular Instance they
contained the records of about 4,000 pension
cases, many rural free delivery matters,
postofflce appointments, miscellaneous
legislation, etc. I waa not there when the
bokes were packed and had not been for
nearly three weeks, but I saw them un
packed here and know of what I write
"Tou had no right to lay that there
was anything in them improper, nor to In
timate that there was, without any knowl
edge of the. fact. It waa an infamous thing
for you to do
"Tou have the right to oppose me and
to criticise everything I do, but you shall
not He about me. Herewith I enclose you
copy of the affidavits by the young men
who packed and unpacked the boxes. Very
truly your, E. J. BURKETT."

WASHINGTON, Dec. 4. "Oslerliatton"
campaign In both the army and navy has
been Inaugurated. Not only have Secre
tary Dickinson of the War department
and Secretary Meyer of the Navy an
nounced in their annual reports that the
time has arrived to put younger men at
the top of the armed organization of the
county, but they had already set to work
to put their Idea into prominence.
The reform in the navy Is made easier
because of the general reorganization now
In progress there. The general board has
been askd to consider the subject and
recommended to Secretary Meyer that the
change can be brought about, by selection
for promotion or by process of e'.mlnlna
tlon. At present officer in the navy are pro
moted according to seniority alone. Many
have advocated that this system be
changed to allow selection for promotion
to the higher rank. Others have sug
gested the number of required retirements
annually be increased.

On the home stretch of a transcontinental
dash over American railroads, Judge Rob
ert S. Lovett of New Tork. who grasp the
wizard's wand laid aside by the late Ed
ward II. Harrlman and who now rules the
destlnines of the one of the greatest rail
way systems In the world, was the guest
Saturday afternoon of local officials of the
Union Pacific.
The visit of President Lovett In Omaha
his first since becoming the head of the
Union Pacific lasted an hour, but during
that time he was whisked in a limousine
touring car to Fifteenth and Dodge streets,
the site of the proposed new general head
quarters of the road. When he returned
to his train he said to newspaper report
ers and officials of the system:
"The Union Paclfio needs new head
quarters in Omaha. I said this same thing
to your business men two years ago, and I
still maintain as president of the road
now that a new structure should be built."
It waa the plan of Mr. Harrlman to ex
pend 1.E00,000 os a magnificent structure
in Omaha, but the panto of 1907 put a qui
etus on the project Just now revived.
Lovett Special Ice Clad.
Ice-clad and covered with mow, showing
the effects of a heavy storm between Og-
den and Omaha, the Lovett special rollde
into Union station yesterday afternoon at
4:45 o'clock. It was drawn by engine No.
102, one of the ponderous moguls operated
on the Union Pacific lines. Judge Lovett
has two cars, No. 99, formerly the private
coach of Mrs. Harrlman, and a combina
tion diner and observation car.
Private car No. 100, In the serrlo of A
L. Mohler of Omaha, vice president and
general manager of the road, was a part
of the train,, having been coupled on at
Ogden, where Mr. Mohler went to Join his
chief, accompanied by General Superintend
ent W. L. Park. Chief Engineer Russell L.
Huntley and General Passenger Agent E.
L. Lomax.
There was a kindly smile' oh President
Lovett' face when newspaper men ap
proached him.
"Tou fellows always seem glad to see
me," he said. "I expected to meet you.
There Is little to siy at present; but I am
coming back to Omaha at a later date.
have made a hurried trip over the country
and am now bound for New Tork."
Paese Vp Switchmen.
"Was the switchmen' strike the cause of
your haste In rettnning east?" he waa
"I am not going by way of St. Paul," he
said, as though avoiding a direct answer.
As originally planned Mr. Lovett was to
return eastward by the southern route
going from Los Angeles to New Orleans
over the Southern Pacific. It is understood
he took the shorter route by way of Omaha
in order to reach New Tork at an earlier
date owing to strike troubles.
The local official conferred with Judge
Lovett aboard the special tralm between
Ogden and Omaha. This conference waa
similar to one held about ten day ago
between Kansas City and Denver, the
Oh. aha men Joining their chief at the
former place.
On the automobile trip In Omaha Judge
Lcvett was accompanied by Vice President
Mohler, Superintendent Park and Joseph
S Sykes, chief clerk to the general auperln
terdent. The party did not go to the head
quarter building.
Returning to the depot Judge Lovett con
versed with friends. His special left the
city at 6:02 o'clock for Chicago over the
Chicago & Northwestern line.
The candid manner In which the new
Union Pacific president discussed the new
headquarters building gave much local
comfort arM encouragement. It Inspired
the belief that this building will come very
soon and that the early visit to Omaha to
which Mr. Lovett referred will have for
Its chief purpose review of plan for th
building with Mr. Mohler.

of securing the vote to do this from two
thirds of the bondholders has been about
completed and action will be begun in the
district court of Douglas county.
Active in prosecution of the suit is Joseph
Harris of Chicago, president of the Auto
matic Electric company, and the heaviest
creditor of the company, ' He himself holds
many bonds of the concern.
The Harris interests have been working
to this end for a long time and have sent

significance to the filing of the mechanics'
liens a short time ago In the office of the
county recorder. The Automatic Electric
company wa one of the largest lien seekers
and its action is plainly done with a view
to protecting Itself as a creditor for re

complete reorganization of the company,
