The Marquis of Lansdowne, the
Unionist leader of the House of Lord,
andfAndrew Bonar Law, the Unionist
lraar In the House of Commons, were
the chief speakers, but the platform
was crowded with about 100 prominent
Unionists. Including the Duke of Devon-
thirc, Lord Curzon, Lord Selborne, Lord
Salisbury, Austen Chamberlain, Sir Ed
win Carson and the Right Hon. Walter
After the preliminary singing of "God
Save the King" a wild outburst of cheer
las was evoked by the unfurling of a
huse Ulster flag, lent for the occasion
by the Unionist clubs of Ulster.
The Marquis of Lansdowne was
eheered when he arose to deliver his
ddress. He raid:
"The first Item of the Unionist policy
Is tariff reform. If the Unionists win
In the ncrt election, as 1 belteve they
will, they- must be free to raise taxation
and to meet the enormous and grossly
underestimated obligations they will in
He went on to say that the Unionists
must also be free to meet the Dominions

It the Dominions asked a moderate
duty on wheat the Unionists would ex
amine the proposal and would not be
deterred by the statements that it would
Involve the taxation of food.

cisely the limits within which they
would resort to taxation of that kind
and they would not exceed those limits
without further authorization from the
country. Moreover, tho revenue raised
by that means would not be treated as
ordinary revenue, but would be applied
to alleviating the. burden of the workers.
Bonar Law concurred In Lord Lans-
downe's proposals, but he said that the
present duty of the Unionists is to

camblers and adventurers, who If they

gramme will lead the country to head
Mr. Law's .speech was mainly devoted
to Irish home rule and 'abuse of the
Government for trampling on the ml
norlty and the privileges of the mem
kers of the House of Commons. He said
that he did not try to quell the dls
turhanee In the House of Commons yes
terday and never would try to quell an
outbreak In similar circumstances.
If the Government's motion had been
carried, he declared, the House of Com
mons would have been destroyed and
the opposition would have shared In the
responsibility. The opposition, he con
tinued, would continue In Its efforts to
wreck the Irish home rule bill In the
House of Commons, but If, It became a
law, which It wouldn't, they would
reck It then.

When the House of Commons to-day
threatened to contlnuo the riots started
yesterday and a tremendous crowd sur
rounded the Parliament House, an ad
journment was taken until Monday.

were looked for. I
It Is generally conceded that however

It Is now expected that 4he Govern
ment on Monday will amend its time
table for the discussion of the Irish
homo rule bill. Then the Government
will either recommit the whole bill, al
lotting one day to all the clauses already
passed and then be able to proceed with
the financial clauses as If nothing had
happened, or else on the financial reso
lution as amended coming up for further
discussion under the revised time table
the Government will defeat It as a sub
stantive motion and then Introduce a
(resh financial resolution. The Union
ists would not oppose either course.
The actual result of the episode will
be that the loss of time will compel the
Government to drop some measure or to
defer the discussion of the Welsh dis
establishment until ISIS.
While both the King and the Speaker
have made every effort to bring about
peace tho Speaker's threat to resign If
there Is a repetition of yesterday's

RUSSIAN TREATY, TAFT
LEGACY TO DEMOCRATS
President Admits Inability to
Settltf Question With
AGREEMENT TALK DENIED
Ambassador's Visit to Knox Not
Significant Russia Can't
Washinoton, Nov. 14. The visits of
Ambassador Balchmoteff of Russia to
Secretary Kno x's office in tho last two days
give rise to-night to reports that an agree
ment has been reached .between the
United States and Russia affording a basis
for a new treaty or at least a modus Vi
vendi following the expiration of the
treaty of 1832 on January 1.
The report that any understanding has
been reached in regard to a treaty met
with sweeping denials upon the part of
the highest Government authorities. Not
only was it denied that any agreement
had been reached, but it was admitted
that the Taft Administration has about
given up all hope of breaking the deadlock
with Russia over the Jewish passport
The conclusion has been reached that
there can be no agreement with Russia
that will satisfy the demands of the Sulzer
resolution, which was chiefly responsible
for the President giving notice last year
of the abrogation of the treaty of 1832,
While all effort has not been abandoned
and the Washington Government' clings
to the hope that some unforeseen event
may give a new and favorable turn to
the situation, it is now admitted that the
Russian treatr Droblem will inevitably
be passed on as a legacy to the Wilson
Aamimairauon ana uie uemocrauo pany.
It was learned to-night, however.
that the two Governments are about
to agree upon a modus vlvendl which
will' maintain the status quo during
the two months of the Taft admlnls
tratlon following January 1, the date
of the expiration of the treaty. The
effect of this will be simply to continue
the commercial rights and privileges
between the two countries as they now
exist under, the treaty until the new
administration has an opportunity to
tako up the problem with Russia. It
is believed that notes will be exchanged
between the two Governments on this
subject This move will amount to an
acknowledgment that the Department
of State and Russia have been unable
to agree on a treaty.
It is almost universally recognised hare
that the United States in abrogating tne
treaty of 1833 because 01 tne Jewish pass
port issue has raised an issue which
Russia cannot meet. European diplomats
in Washington who are watching with
much interest the ttusslan-American
treaty situation have from the very first
declared Russia cannot yield her right to
treat all Jews, whether Americans or of
other nationalities, exactly as she treats
Russian Jews within her borders. The
Taft Administration has recognized that
the Russian' Government is not a free
agent in the matter, being compelled to
respect the national sentiment against
dews in iiuniua.
There' have been rumors recently that
President Taft might make some arrange
ment with Russiajoolting to the reestab
ilshment of treaty relations without
including the Jewish passport question.
Big industrial concerns having large
interests in Russia are said to be very
desirous of some kind of an agreement
for the sake of business stability.
It is Dolnted out here, however, that
President -Taft could hardly consent to
such an arrangement.

"Sometimes the girls fear' that they

Mr. McClung'a resignation is an echo
of the friction between Secretary Mac-

administration and charging him with
Incompetency and inefficiency. Mr. Me

The change in the oflice of the United

to count again the hundreds of millions
of dollars in cash and securities in the
treasury vaults before the bond of the
retiring treasurer 1b canoelled. A big
force of clerks is required and the task
usually takes about six weeks.
Secretary MaoVeagh has had more
than tho usual amount of trouble with

President he conceived the idea or trans
ferring the Panama Canal bond issue
from the Treasury to Uie White House.
Mr. MaoVeagh resented this plan and
threatened to resign If it was carried into
