TROUBLE AMONG CONSULS
Washington, August 20 In
vestigation of tho charges ngainat
Dr. Edward Bedloe, United States
Consul at Canton, will ba the
foundation of a general investi
gation of the United States con.
sular service in China. Charges
and counter-charges involving not
only Bedloe, but other consular
officers, are on file at the State
Department and tho fullest in
quiry will be made into them. If
one-half tho allegations maie are
true thoro will unquestionably bo
soveral dismissals of consular of
fleers in Obina. Some of tho
charges aro of a sensational char
octer, involving tho houesty of
Consuls and their subordinates.
Consul. Qonoral Wildman at
Hongkong has accused Consul
Bedloe ot official acts which would
compel the President to remove
the latter if Wildman is sustained.
Gounter-oharaoB against Wildman
havebeen filed by Bedloe, and it
is said that allegations of irregu
lar conduot havo been made by
the wholesale by these two men
and some of their colleagues. No
information as to the naturo of tha
charges is obtainable at tho State
Department, but it is asserted to
day that the aotiou of the depart
ment in suspending Bedloe was
not duo to anything that effected
D-partmont officials will ot
Bay, however, that charges of that
cbaraotor havo not boon made,
and, in fact, givo the iraprossion
that tho honesty of several Cou
buIb has been questioned. As
told this morning, the suspension
of Dr. Bedloe from his consular
office was duo to complaints made
against him by the Chinese Gov
ernment. Those complaints, it
was learned, bad nothing to do
with the reported practico of Con
buIs of accepting unauthorized
fees for approving tbo certificates
of Chinese subjects who desiro to
return to tho United Statos.

Chamberlain, Secret-try of Stato
for tbo Colonies, was drawn into
the moBt important speech on the

asked the Secretary, in beginning.
Cries of "The Trausvaal I"
'Yes," ho replied, "I kuow there
is one subject which is very deep
in all your hearts and about
which I canuot talk or say much,
lest I do harm that is, tho rela
tion of our raco with the Trans

could tell you today tbat the dif
ficulties existing for eo many
years betwoeu hor mnj-sty's Gov
ernment and the oligarchy in Pre

acute form during the past fow
yearH, were happily settled.
"But, unfoitunatoly, that is not

He offers are ho ompnuied with
conditions which bo knows to be

us to make a satisfactory investi

"I do not think it will be de
nied that wo have exhibited un
paralleled putionce in tho relations
between a paramount and a sub
ordinate stato. Tho situation is
too fraught with dangor; it is too
strained for indefinite proposition.
Tho knot must bo loosened, to
use Mr. Balfour's words, or nlso
wo shall havo to find other ways
of undoing it.
"If wo are forced to do that,
then I would repeat now tho
words used by Lord Salisbury in
tho House of Lords. I say that,
if forcod to make further prepara
tion, if this delay continues much
longer, we shall not hold ourselves
limited by what we havo already
offered, but having takon this mat

which, once for all, will establish
us as tho paramount powor in
