Diplomats at Caracas Disapprove
Action Toward France.
Caracas. Jan. 25 (via Port of Spain, Jan. 27).—
Twenty-five members of the diplomatic corps
to-day delivered to the Venezuelan government
a formal joint note, which said that they could
not accept Venezuela's position that M. Taigny,
the former French charjrf? d'affaires here. ha*
been deprived of his official character, and that
he ranked only as a French citizen at the time
of his forced departure from this country. The
diplomats have communicated the text of this
note to their respective governments.

Washington. Jan. 27. — An undated cable dis
patch from the American Minister, Mr. Russell,
at Caracas, was received at the State Depart
ment to-day, but it contained no mention of the
note reported to haTe been delivered by tho
diplomatic body at Caracas to the Venezuelan
government relative to th#» expulsion of M.
Taigny. It Is inferred at the department that
Mr. Russell was not a party to the conference
and did not sign the note. It I<> thought that he
would have consulted the department before
taking action as Important as that de-scribed,
for it Is by no means Improbable that President
Castro may expel the entire diplomatic corps
from hi* capital in a fit of resentment. It is re
called that a former President of Venezuela,
Guzman Blanco, did almost precisely such a
thing-, leaving only the American Minister at
<"aracas» and causing a practical suspension of
Venezuela's external relations for several years.

DUKE ANSWERS WIFE'S CHARGES
Denies Allegations Made by Her in Cross

[By Telegraph to The Tribune]
Trenton. N. J.. Jan. 27— James B. Duke nk-.i an

he entered a general and specific denial of the
charges in the cross-bill by which Mrs. Duke met
liis suit for divorce and herttlX ask<U tor a partial

cruelty. After characterizing as scandalous, untrue
and unverified the allegations of Mrs ]> the

THE NEW PARLIAMENT
UNIONISTS SWEPT AWAY.
Clear Liberal Majority of Over
Eighty — Labor's Future.
London, Jan. 27.— Except that the returns
from nine constituencies have not been received,
the general elections in the Vnlted Kingdom are
The government coalition will hay« approrl
mately 510 votes in the next Parliament, this
estimate Including on the side of Premier Sir
Henry Campbell-Bannermau the Nationalist
and Labor votes, with the concrete Unionist
minority of 160 on the Opposition side.
The Issues in the campaign set forth by the
Liberals Included an expensive war for which
the people are still paying, a threatened raising
of food prices, an unpopular educational system,
an unprecedented number of unemployed and
many other matters. General dtssastlsfaction
with the ten years of Unionist power waa shown.
Sir Henry Campbell-Rannerman will enter the
n««w Parliament on February 18 with the great
est majority ever given to an En^Uah Premier.
The Unionists — hereafter the Opposition — will
barely fill half of the Left benches), while an
other notable fact Is that many of the most
notable of the Unionist debaters will be absent
at least on the first day of the sitting, among
them the former Premier, Mr. Balfour. On the
other hand, tho government's support will fill
Its own allotted Si-ats and overflow Into the va
cant half of the Opposition side, where the Na
tionalist and Independent Labor members will
also find places.
Aa a result of the elections the political map
of England shows a tremendous change, and
it may safely be said that the incoming of a new
party to power marks a complete upsetting of
the old order of things, for even the most parti
san of the Conservatives admit that the Liberal
government Is In power for at least Its full term
under the Septennial act, and that within the
next six years new names will be made and new
statesmen will appear, while the Premier,
whether ho stays In the Houee of Commons or
goes to the House of Lords, has won a name
which will be handed down to posterity.
With such evidence as the country has given
of opposition to the Unionists, who also were
pledged to carry out the foreign policy begun by
Lord Salisbury and Lord Lansdowne, the Liberal
government feels confident that It will receive
wholehearted support for some time to come or
until the minority Is able to draw off sufficient
support to become an opposition strong enough
to be considered.
The composition of the new Parliament, as
nearly as it Is now possible to tell, follows:
Liberals 376'Natlonallsts R4
Unlonlats lßOiLaborltes 50
Thus it will be Been that the Liberals have a
majority over all of eighty-two votes, but such
a thing as a combination of the entire force of
Laborltes and Nationalists against the govern
ment is hardly conceivable. On the contrary,
the Labor party members and Nationalist mem
bers may safely be counted on the government's
side on the main issues In Parliament for some
time to come.
It phould also be pointed out that the election
probably marks the end of the old two-party
system, there now being four groups, of which
the Laborltes are the moat interesting. The
Labor party's development in national politics
marks a surprising change in sentiment In the
country. Liberals are supporting Laborltes and
Laborltes are supporting Liberals In most In
stances. In some quarters It Is predicted that
the Labor party will become the great demo
cratic party of England. The fact that labor
felt Its strength In this election Is bound to
Kive, Impetus to the movement in the future,
especially as John Burns, the Labor party lead
er, has been prominently seated In the Cabinet.
Mr. Burns, It Is generally conceded, is certain to
reflect credit upon his post and supporters, not
withstanding the virulent attacks made upon
him by the adherents of the aristocratic regime
and the Jealousy of a certain element among tho
Some twenty-five members of the Labor party
belong to what is known aa "Labor Representa
tives." They are pledged to disregard the party
whips of either side and to vote In accordance
with 'he wishes of their constituents. So long
as they follow Instructions they are paid |
each a year by the Labor Representatives Com
mittee. The other Labor members, who are
unpledged, will probably stand by tho Liberal
side through thick and thin and on labor
tions will have the support of some twenty or
thirty of the more radical Libf
The new Parliament opens a wide vista for
speculation on the possibility of combinations.
The minority is homoj md the majority
us, and the concrete minority Is cer
tain t • Support of fii-r
tions of the majority. It is a fact that Joseph
Chamberlain hns already outlined a plan for
the Unionist rupport of lahor on all trades union

tain that Mr. B ; Mr. Chaml>er!aln In
the future will work hand and glove for tariff

It may he pointed out that the tariff reform
movement In this election has not been without
l f s victories. The Chamberlain followers are
drawing much consolation from the fact that In
several cases Unionist Free Traders were de
by rnorrftiers of the Chamberlain group.
Mr. Chamberlain counts 100 Unlonla

One thing is certain, that the Laborites will
take a leading part at the comir.?r sessions of

National Guardsman Makes Charges
Against Buffalo Executive.
Buffalo, Jan. 27. — Charges of neglect of duty
have been drawn up against Mayor J. 11. Adam
and were forwarded to Governor Hlgglr>9 this
afternoon, with a request for the Mayor's re

Mayor Adam to attend the meeting of the Board
of Police Commissioners last Wednesday to try
Superintendent of Police Bull on charges of
neglect of duly.
The complainant Is Captain Walter E. Pagan.

A short time ago an investigation was begun
Into the methods of accounting of the police
pension fund, and 59.000 was missing. That
sum was shortly afterward paid Into the city
treasury by Superintendent Bull. Police Com
missioner Doherty filed charges against Super
intendent Bull, charging him with neglect of
duty in not turning In the money promptly.
Mayor Adam la a Member of th« Police Com
mission, ex-offielo, but he refused to sit at the
trial of the superintendent and asked Commis
sioner Doherty to resign. The Mayor said he
would consider the trial a burlesque If Doherty
sat as Judge and accuser. Superintendent Bull
has since resigned.
Mayor Adam, when told that charges were
to te preferred against him, said:
"If charges are made, and they Involve me

The hearing in this c!ty In the suit of Missouri
against the Standard Oil Company, which was set
for next Tuesday, has been postponed until Feb

Hadley of Missouri and opposing counsel in Cleve

day, and a holiday in this State, it Is probable that
the hearing will be a^jaln postponed to February
13. The change In the date was made at the re
quest of Mr. Hadley.
