exglaxd prepared FOR
IQSG LIBERAL RULE
fSpoc-al b}' Frer.ch Cable to Tho Kcw-Ycrk Tribune. ]
. iji jftt, 1006. hj> The Tribune Association."
Lsr.don. Jan 27.— With the elections virtually
noKip'eted, the country is settling down to a
ng period of Liberal rule. The Prime Minls
i-'s majority, which has exceeded the expecta
"o'o of everybody except Lightning Calculator
BsaA offers beeurity even against tho unlikely
copbir.aticn of Unionists. Nationalists and the
Labor group. It has been obtained by a coalition
f free traders, trade unionists and working
j-sse* in town and country being- massed
acair.st the last government. It is a guarantee
fV«t an effective series of radical measures will
be adopted, beginning with the revision of the
Vdpe rr.ad- J l* w combination and education act
»ri cor.'Jrj:r^r with the taxation of land values
d t >j e abolition of plural voting. While so
large a majority Is rather unmanageable, it is
likely from its magnitude to disarm the Lords.
It is already understood that the Conservative
peer* will stay 'ay and allow the small group
of Liberal peers to ume full responsibility for
miry""!" or amending measures enacted by
the Commons. There are two sections of the
new Parliament more or less discontented with
the sweeping" victory they themselves have
helped to bring about. One is the group of a
hundred L:ix-ral capitalists, mine owners and
niar.ufacturer?. whose interests will suffer from
an alteration in the law of combination and the
rsvtval of Strikes. It is disconcerted by the
election of over fifiy Labor members and by
the forecasts of the most outspoken leaders that
the trade unionists will have at least a hundred
waJucs delegates at Westminster after an
other general election.
\O HOME RULE IS SIGHT.
Tho other pointed group is composed of
nationalists, who cannot hope to force Home Rule
upcr. the Liberals, but must wait until they have
the balance of power. If the Unionists had been
jßttinV : In attempting to make Home Rule a
v:::.: :.-.'j ■■ tore the electorate tho Prime Minis
ter would now have what Mr. Gladstone lacked,
• majority V.ig enough to carry the establishment
of the Dublin Parliament with the consent of
England -us predominant partner. The Na
.3 frankly admit u-.at they cannot ex
pert Home Rule from tho present g-overnment, i
and that they axe not much better off than they
have been in the last ten years. a.nd must culti
vate the best possible relations with the Labor
party for their future campaign. There is a
starching of heart among the Unionists, but
not much wrangling* The complete reorganiza
tion of the party is probable, but this is a minor
detail. The Tory democracy, which has Veen
thf; main resource of the Unionists in the large
towr.s. has bolted 2Jid gone radical, except in
Birmingham. How to win back the votes of the
WorkJngmeß is the vital question. The assump
tion that Mr. Chamberlain would lead the oppo
sition as a compact tariff reform group has not
been well founded. His health is not equal to
the strain of leadership and late hours In Par
liament. It was Mr. Chamberlain bo appealed
U- Mr. Gibbs to resign his seat for the City in
order to make room for Mr. Balfour as th©
leader who could not be spared from the Oppo-
BiTioa front bench. The rumor that Mr. Talbot
vSQ resign his seat for the University of Ox-
Jord in favor of Lord Hugh Cecil is not credited
by the tariff reformers. It would rot fit in with
the rejection of another Unionist free trader. Sir
Johs hunt, by Cambridge University
ELECTION SOCIAL CHANGES.
The social changes effected by the election
will be evident when the King opens Parliament.
All the typical Tory squires, except Sir John
Keimaway, have lost their seats, and two hun
dred forraer Unionist members are now among:
the unemployed. Many of them will go abroad
for the season, and those who remain in London
will be restless figures at their clubs and in
•ociety. On the other hand, the courts and
levees will be crowded with the new Liberal
merr. oers azi'i tht-'r wives and daughters. Vanity
Fair will not break up even if the old Tories
are c<..- it the country is going to the
everlasting bowwows. Hunting has already
been resumed in ir.auy shires, and bridge pixy
goes or. :ls though votes were never trumps;
nor v.:;; fiihior.a.ble marriages be discontinued.
The most Interesting new engagement Is that
of (he only brother of the Marquis of Bute with
L°fd Gon g's only daughter. One was the
sest ma md Ibe other the bridesmaid at the
marque's recent wedding. One daughter of the
landsca.:^ painter Alfred East has started this
week for Persia as the bride of George Church
111. of " .: embassy, and her sister will
follow her course In a few weeks as the wife
of the bridegroom's brother, a banker In Te

INTERNATIONAL GAME AT
[Special by French C*bl« to Tho New-York Trlbuna]
(Copyright. 1908, by The Trttun*. AM«cl*ti«>.)
Paris. Jan. 27.— The international game at
Alpcciras proceeds very slowly The telegrams
to-day Indicate that nothing beyond cutting for
partners and the shuffling of cards can occur
until another week, when a few preliminary
tricks may be won or lost, although no trump
cards will be played until the close of the con
ference, which may last a couple of months or
more. owing to numerous holiday? and.
above all. to the tedious delays of f. , r
or five days Imposed by the Moorish dole
rates, who insist upon every successive meas
ure being submitted to the Sultan by spe
cial messenger* The French papers, feeling
assured that no serious results wfU ensue from
the conference, dwell upon the comic as
pect of the proceedings Tho Moorish delegates
begran first of all by mistaking the German dele
gate, Herr Radowitz. for the French delegate,
M. Revoil. and vice versa, thus attributing to
France the propositions of Germany and credit-
Ing to Germany the statements of France. It is
interesting to note that all the voluminous dec
larations and verbosities of the Moors are edit
ed, revised and expurgated by the Germans be
fore being submitted to the conference. The
Moors, having brought over from Morocco their
families and harems, are now comfortably in
stalled at the expanse of the Spanish govern
ment and have decided to make tho conference
last as long as possible. They express the opin
ion that, as all the powers apree in recognizing
tha sovereignty of the Sultan, it is not worth
while to meddle with his affairs, but ad
mit that there is one real service that Europe
can confer upon Morocco that is, to lend
money. The Moorish delegates came to Alge
ciras scantily provided with funds, and it is
now hinted by several Parisian correspondents
that they or their secretaries propose to aug
ment their pocket money by supplying the
newspapers with interesting inside features or
sensational incidents during the deliberations.
The Moors, with their deliberate procrastination
and tactics of obstruction, are so far masters of
th. situation. They, moreover, suit the French
policy, for France did not want the conference
at all, and anything that prevents the abstruse
generalities which are so far all that has been
formulated by the German delegates from be
coming crystallized Into practical working
shape will be supported by French diplomacy
at Algeciras. To put the policing of Morocco
into the hands of an international gendarmerie
under the control of all the powers represented
at Algeciras is admitted as utterly impracticable,
and there is no chance at present of the con
ference consenting to give such mandate to any
one or to any two powers.
Gun ammunition in large quantities is being
dispatched from Lorier.t and Cherbourg to Fort
de France for the use of the French cruisers of
the Atlantic division.
COURTSHIP OF KIXG ALFONSO
There is keen interest taken here in the court
ship of King Alfonso and the Princess Ena of
Bat Jiberg, their daily automobile excursions at
Bia ritz being recounted in picturesque detail.
During one of these trips they passed the
Villa Combo and were saluted at its gates
by the author of "Cyrano" and "Madame Kos
tand." The young King seems completely en
raptured by the English princess, whose band
trembled when yesterday morning for tho first
time the King, in the presence of her mother,
kissed it. It is reported that the wedding will
take place on May 17. the King's twentieth
birthday. The King is incognito, bearing the
title of Marquis of Corodonla, the same title as
that assumed by his father. Alfonso, at twelve,
when he courted Maria Christina at Arcachon in
1879. During the last three weeks only one
day >7«« passed without King Alfonso and

MUTINEERS HOLD FORT
Cossacks Reaching the Port — Arms
Seized Xear Irkutsk.
St. Petersburg, Jan. 27. — Beyond the fact that
the revolt at Vladivostok is not subdued and
that the mutinous soldiers and sailors aro still
standing by the guns at the Holy Innocents
Battery, the War Office had nothing to give out
to-day regarding the situation at the fortress.
The only additional news available was con
tained in a newspaper dispatch, dated January
2t>. saying that two squadrons of the Nertchlnsk
Regiment of Cossacks had arrived there and
that many arrests had been made.
The War Office officials said that their own
Information practically duplicated yesterday's
news dispatch. In the absence of news It la
assumed that General Mode, temporarily In
command of the troops, Is awaiting the arrival
of Lieutenant General Mlstchenko, who Is ex
pected at Vladivostok to-day, before venturing
on serious measures against the mutineers.
The seizure of arms by the mutineers on Jan
uay 22 was a sequel to a street fight in which
a number of sailors of the Siberian contingent

other embassies are also without Information.

authorities also found nine bombs.
MANY RUSSIAN PLOTS.
Arrests at Tsar shoe- Plans of
St. Petersburg. Jan. 27.— A largo number of
summary searches and arrests have been made
recently at Tsaxakoe-Selo. The store of a Jew
druggist named Abramovich was ransacked, but
no seizures were made. The police say the
affair was unimportant and that they merely
desired to watch all suspected persons in the
neighborhood of the Emperor. Th . plot at
Moscow revealed by the arrest of the pseudo
Princess Koslovska on January IS waa found
to be really serious and to have wide ramifica
tions intended to encompass the death of Gov
ernor General Doubasoff, of Moscow, and all his
staff at the ceremony of blessing the waters.
The authorities are convinced that the revolu
tionary leaders have eliminated uprisings and
street fighting from their programme for the
time being in favor of attempts to- kill high
otticials. Several conspiracies have already
been iiroken up.
The government Is disposing of the coses of
those arrested before January 22. Most ol
them are being titled for carrying revolvers.
The receipts from tins source yesterday alone
amounted to $ti, SUU.
An investigation of the cemetery records by
the "Novoe Vreinya's" Moscow correspondent
bears out the moderate estimates of the cas
ualties. The burial permits. In which the cause
or death was given as killed, were 454. There
were, in addition more than a hundred private
burials of executed rebels, whose cause of death
was concealed, owing to the reluctance of influ
ential families to have the facts made public.
Un account of the fact that there Is no Brit
