The unionists hava gained an encouraging
number of stuts, although less .than the
twenty-nine which 'they expected to take
away from the liberals out of tho seventy
four balloted for. ,'
Ths popular vote .goes strongly against
th liberals. The members of that party
who hold seat ' won them today by ma
jorities ranging from 30 to CO per cent below
their majorities In 1900, except in a few
borough where special conditions figured
In the Campaign.' The popular votes polled

Tn Manchester unionists Increased their

population went enthusiastically for tariff
reform, giving Hayes FiBher, the un
ionist candidate, a majority of 2.000 In
this borough. In the last election the seat
went to a liberal by' 600.
Devonport, where the big navy Issue
was predominant, wiped out the liberal
majority of 1,?00 and returned two union
ists by BOO, 8lr J.' Jackson and Sir C.
Klnloch Cooke. 81r Henry Norman, the
liberal Journalist, who Is well known In
America and who recently was appointed

Attack on Chancellor.
The moet exciting scenes of the campaign
occurred at Grimsby, where a menacing
crowd threatened David Lloyd George,
chancellor of the exchequer, compelling
him to flee from a hall where he had been
s)eaklng, under police protection, much
as he was driven from a pro-Boer meeting
at Birmlngliam during the South African
nr. when he made his escape dlsguintd
In a policeman's uniform.
Purt of tho provocation for the hostility
shown towards him was caused by the
chancellor' unusual course In addressing
the voters on polling day. which .ha never
obtained before tn England, and which Is
considered by many to be unconstitutional.
The chancellor' speech Included a predic
tion of disaster to the German -fleet If It
fought the British. Referring to the In
vincibility of the British navy, he de
If the German fleet In a moment of
madnesa ever attacked Great Britain It
would be at the bottom of the German
ocean In a very few hour."
A big crowd waited outside the hall, and
when the chancellor of the exchequer. ap
peared raised shouts of "Traitor!" "Pro
Boer!" The chancellor retreated within the build
ing and a cordon of police was drawn up
to keep back the crowd. The chief con
stable, with an escort of police, conducted
Mr. Lloyd-George out of the back door and
the party retreated a quarter of a mile
along the railroad, where a small station
was used as a refuge. An automobile was
elephoned for, and In the meantime the
chancellor buHled himself In writing letters.
When the motor arrived he drove Into town
by a circuitous route.
urprlae at Grlmsbjr.
Grimsby furnished a great surprise, for It
shifted 2,000 votes and a seat for the union
ist to the liberal column, T. E. Ewlng de
feating Sir G. Doughty, one of the fore
most unionist orators.
The streets In the center of London were
almost Impassable after tha dinner hour
from cheerful throngs swarming In from
the suburbs to get the election returns. The
newspaper offices on Fleet street were the
popular magnets. Many screen were
erected on street corner on which the re
sults were bulletined.
Reports were read at the theaters and
music halls to big audiencos, but compared
with election night In American cities the
occasion van tamo and subdued. A land
slide In either direction, however, would
have provoked lively scenes and many
fight. , .
Voters Hauled to Poll. -
The polling during the day was note
worthy from the thousands of automobiles
employed In the London districts to carry
the voters to the polls. Unionists, being
the party of the rich, had by far the
greater number of motors at their com
mand. They were decorated gaudily with
flags and posters. .
Several of the members of the cabinet
spoke before their constituent tonight.
Promler Asqulth, Foreign Secretary Sir
Edward Grey and Chancellor Lloyd-George
devoted their speeches mainly to upholding
the government's management of the navy.
Winston Spencer Churchill, president of
the Board of Trade, at Dundee denounced
The Party of privilege and class." '
Richard Jebb, . a vigorous tariff reform
candidate, furnished one of the most inter
esting events of tho day. He visited the
headquarters of his ' rival to denounce
charges against him. A fight followed and
Jebb was thrown Into the street.

. The feature of the evening was an ad
dress by Willard Eddy upon the subject of
"Patent Laws." At the outset he said that
while the trusts were a bad thing in their
way, and that It began to look as if their
claw wer to be somewhat clipped, there
was one form of monopoly not thoroughly
understood the patent laws, a subject of
Interest to every lawyer. "There Is a pat
ent Issued to some Nebraskan for every
working day of the year," said Mr. Eddy,
"but on hundred times more than that
number of patent are Issued elsewhere
throughout the country. It frequently
occurs that great Interests are Involved In
tome patents, while many other are worth
less." He spoke of the enormous value of some
patents, notably the cotton gin, the reaper,
and the telephone and telegraph. All pat
ents, he held, were subject to mora or less
litigation, and -cited a one Instance an
automobile patent, the record of litigation
of which comprised thlrty-slx large octavo
volumes. He then went Into the early his
tory of patents and patent law, showing
that the first formal patent law enacted In
the United States was In 1790. He showed
also that 6,000 practitioners were registered
to practice before tha United States p'ateut
office. H deprecated th red tape that Is
woven about .all patent procedure. He
showed the distinction between an inven
tion and a patent, the latter being the legal
grant and right to receive a benefit from
an Invention. He told that a patent Issued
for a thing not s,n Invention was void, and
went Into soma length describing the real
and legal meaning of an Invention.
' Thanks were extended to Mr. Eddy for
hi address, following which th meeting
adjourned to enjoy a light luncheon pre
pared by the entertainment committee.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 16. Representative
G. J. Dlekema of Michigan has formally
announced Ills candidacy for speaker of
the house of representatives, to succeed
"Undo Joe" Cannon at the end of the
present session. ,
Speaker Cannon has made It clear that
he has no intention of resigning before the
end of his present term. His position Is
that any man ha the right to be a can
didate for the speakership and what the
next congress would do cannot be fore
told at this time. He has already an
nounced he would be a candidate for re
election to congress, but has never de
clared that he would again be a candidate
for the speakership. Beside Mr. Diekoma
number . of names of possible candi
date have 'bean mentioned. Including Wal
ter X. Smith of Iowa, a member of the
rule committee; Marlln ' B. Olmsted of
Pennsylvania, chairman of th insular af
fairs committee, and Jamea R. Mann of
Illinois, chairman of the committee on in
terstate and foreign commerce.
Mr. Dlekema doees not believe Mr. Can
non will again be a candidate for the
speakership. -- ----

"I am a regular, not an insurgent,"
said Mr.' Dlekema. ''No man could ever
give me whiter treatment than Hpeaker
Cannon has given and I think he la tha
fairest presiding officer I ever saw In a
chair. I believe the next speakership will
go to the mlddlewest and not to any man
who lias had long service In congress and
has had close affiliation with the men
who have dominated congress. It does
not seem possible on the other hand that
th speakership will go to any of the
Mr. Dlekema's announcement was
brought out by a direct question put to
him as to whether he would support
Speaker Cannon for re-election. His reply
was that he could not do so because he
waa going to be a candidate himself. He
Is a member of the judiciary committee
and the committee on election of presi
dent and representatives In congress. He
ha been called by Mr. Cannon to pre
side over the house temporarily three
time and ha served two terms In con
gress. He waa speaker of the Mlchlg.tn
house of representatives, boasting the
distinction of never having an appeal from
his ruling on any parliamentary question
during that six months' term. He has
been chairman of the Michigan state cen
tral committee for ten year and has be
