Iintov, April 13. The only hopeful

While they have not abandoned the

i'h theory that Mr. Martin planned

FORTUNES OF GERMAN PRINCES.
Knurr William Will Re Taxed the
Mint Under ZTeir I, air.
IIf.rm.v, April 3. In view of the an
nouncement that the Princes of the con
federated Oerman States will renounce
their privilege of exemption from tax
because hf the new military bill, It Is in
teresting to note what there Is to be
taxed alow? this line.
Kmperor William will be taxed cer
tainly more than any other. The ninety
domains nnd chateaux of which he Is
the proprietor hrins him an annual in
come of about 13,000,000 marks, or
3,:0,000. Hln civil list amounts to
nbout $2,2.10,000. In addition to this
there Is the fortune bdonitlnir to the
crown, which Is more than $4,000,000.
liut to value the Kmperor's fortune ono
must also take Into account the treasure
belotiKlntf to the Prussian crown, which
consists of the savlnps of Frederick
William III., which were capitalized
nfter his death In 1S40, This um
amounts to about 3,000,000 thalers, or
The other Princes of tho empire pos
sess fortune more or less considerable,
but It Is their civil lists which count.
Here nre a few figures: Tho KlnK of

lA)NtHiN, April 1-1. A Brussels des
patch to the Dally Chronicle says thetit
are persistent statements that King
Albert is likely to act at the eleventh
hour to stop the big strike. It Is stnted
that he will ask the Premier to resign
and commit the formation of a Cabinet
to some one who will submit the ques
tion of a general franchlso to a com
mittee of Inquiry. This would satisfy
the Ijibor party.
Thero Is no doubt that tho ICIng, who
Is popular with all classes, will not
hesitate to tell the Ministers thnt they
havo mnde a mistake.
Th strike, adds the correspondent, is
part of a great social revolution, and If
the Ministers persist in riding for a
fall they may Involve the crown In their
Hnt'ssKi-s, April 13.- By the time this
despatch Is In Che hands of readers of
Tun Sf.v Belgium's remarkable strike
for a political Idea, a strike of folded
arms and not of clenched lists as the
Socialists call It, will be In full swing,
MM. Van der Velde, Huysmans, Destree
and other Socialist leaders say that to
morrow will see from 300,000 to -100,000
There nre 85,000 Christian trade
unionists ent oiled In the Catholic or
ganizations who will stand out from the
strikers, and It Is largely on their ac
count that the Government has been
moving troops all day from various cen
tres. Fifty thousand soldiers are under
arms, not for the purpose, the Govern
ment ways, of terrorizing the strikers,
but to protect those who nre willing to
work. It Is doubtful, however, that the
soldiers will lite on the strikers In the
event of rioting breaking out. The
Socialists are making earnest appeals
to them not to shoot their brothers,
and some regiments nre known to be
antl-derlcal In sentiment.
The strike leaders continue to scorn
the Idea that there will be any rioting,
and thus far everything has been calm.
It Is Impossible to rind anything like
anger and a considerable section of the
workmen are said to be apathetic in
regard to the strlko and would revoke
their vote willingly In favor of such
action If they hnd an opportunity.
The chocolate makers of Antwerp
have decided not to work for three days.
If by that time those of other cities do
not strike they will resume work. Their
attitude is said to be typical of the
workers In many other Industries. Some
of the employers are taking advantage
of the lukewarmness of the men and nru
offering to pay them n week and a half's
wages for a week's work If they do not
strike. Their altitude toward the men
Is one of sorrow rnthfr than anger. At
the snine time they do not blame th
Government for Its attitude on the fran
chise matter, which Is the cause of all
The weavers' unions of Venders ac
tually asked the employers for formal
permission to strike. The employers re
plied In friendly terms. lamenting the
losses which all must suffer.
There were peaceful demonstrations
In many centres of Industry to-day.
The biggest was at Mons, where between
20.000 nnd 30.000 paraded with bands
and carried red flags. Ten thousand
paraded at Antwerp. Some observers
thought the men, especially at Mons,
were oddly lacking In enthusiasm.
Brussels Is not excited over the strike.
The city Is as gay as ever.
The municipal employees at Ghent,
who decided not to strike, objected to
being protected by soldiers. They told
the burgomaster that they would strike
If the protection was not withdrawn.
The burgomaster thereupon yielded and
the portection was withdrawn.
The rush to lay In stores of pro
visions, lamps and candles continued
on Saturday and the tradesmen are
chuckling over getting rid of old stocks
The Socialists ridicule the alarm of
the bourgeoisie nnd say they are acting
with their usual stupidity, and that no
one will suffer Inconvenience, but they
do not explain how in thnt case the
strikers nre going to force tho hands
of the Government.
No commodities have as yet advanced
In price to any serious extent, except
The first outbreak of violence oc

EPISCOPAL SPLIT IS
THEME IN TWO PULPITS
Dr. I'nrks nt St. Riirtholnmow's
Doesn't Want "Catholic"
in Church Name.
Two nplscopal ministers of this city
discussed the split In the Church Con
gress that Is so arousing the Church
yesterday. The Church Congress is nn
unotlclal body of church scholars. At St.
Itartholomew's the lte. Or. I'.irks
preached his second sermon on the sub
ject of a change of name nf the Kpls
copal Church. The Hev. Dr. Harry at
St. Mary the Virgin preached to crowded
pews on the present Internal troubles.
Tin- war Is being kept up on the edit
orlal pages of the two church papers,
the Churchman and the Mrfii; Church.
It was a meeting of the Church Con
gress at Charleston, S. C. nt which It
was voted after a long and bitter argu
ment to allow one not an "Episcopalian
on Its platform hereafter that began
the nppn break between the high and
low church parties.
The attempt at liberalization has
resulted In the withdrawal from the
Church Congress of the Rev. Or. Henry
C. Swentzel of St. Luke's Church of
Hrooklyn nnd the Hev. Dr. H. H. Oberly
of Lllzabeth, N. J.
Dr. Parks In his sermon yesterday
said that the Kplscop.il church is better
for not paving "Catholic" In It nnd that
the name should stand.
"Ecclesiastlclsm," he said, "Is loslns
hold on tile people. It Is doing so in
the Human Catholic Church as else
where, as behold the enormous leakage
in that communion. To go over to it
with more ecclesiastlclsm Is suicidal.
The principles of the ProteMnnt Refor
mation are Just now emerging into new
life. Nothing In the way of spiritual
growth comes from the Pope's church.
It Is ceremonial Incantation, mechanical
action. We must save Protestantism If
we would save spiritual religion."
At St. Mary the Virgin Dr. narry
"We live In a time of much contio
versy. The Church Is assailed fiom
within nnd without Virulent attacks are
inatie on the-., of us who believe and
who act on the belief that tills chinch
Is a part of the Catholic Church, both
by those who repudiate the name Catho
lic and those who claim a monopol) of
It. It Is our lot to suffer from criticism
nnd misunderstanding on nil sides, It Is
our temptation itiitatedly to throw up
the fight or to lespoii'l Iriltnteilly to ie
prourhes with rc pic mi lies, to criticism

fee) is not the Christian method of deal
ing with the situation It Is an un-Chrls-tlan
thing mid a weak thing tu penult
the calm of our faith and tiust In our
Iord to lie disturbed by the attacks of
those who dlsnppiove of us."
It was said yesterday that this crisis
will result In a change In the Church
congress. Thnt bodv will be taken over
I by those who sn they nre the liberals.
The high chuichinen will, it Is predicted,
set up some similar body of their own.

and wide square shanks. Blind eyelets and low receding
toes. Splendid in workmanship, and a shoe you will like

Annual Three-Day Sale of Men's
50c "ONYX" Hosiery at 35c
or 3 pairs for $1
J Wc arc going to say a word or two about "Onyx" hosiery
simply because it is an axiom in advertising that one must
never take anything for granted with the public.
Permit us therefore to give you a glimpse into the obvious!
I "Onyx" is simply "Satisfhction" reduced to two syllables.
It is so thoroughly dependable nt nny price that the great
buying public of this continent have put "Onyx" on its feet
as a hose proposition of national importance. Such is the
reputation of "Onyx" at regular prices. And such is the hose
offered in this sale today nt reduced prices. It includes "Onyx"
silk hose, in black, tan, navy, gray and maroon; nnd "Onyx"
silk lisle hose, in black only.
MENS & BOYS' CLOTHING,HATS & FURNISHINGS

their clothes made in London.
They haven't seen the suits wc make, softly
tailored, natural shoulders, rolling lapels and
graceful body lines.

American cutting' and tailoring arc acknowl
edged the best in the world, and at the prices
wc ask our suits offer as much value as the
best London suits, less the import.
Every desirable style is now ready for your
careful inspection, no matter how conserva
tive or progressive your tastes.
