PARIS. J;iu. 4. No PrcTicbniac is
more French of heart and sentiment
than tho former New Yorlipr and sou

tho object of his life to forgo new

fond of tho luxuries bi' life as ever and
in all Pans there is probabl3' no man
more "raflino'' in his taste than thin

In bpitc of the tinge of the ridicul
ous which continues to purrouud him
in the eyes of those who know him
merely by Sight, he really is a man
who accomplishes somethiug and who
has an iron will aud pertinacity of
purpose which few men possess.
I doubt, if there lives a .foreigner in
Franco today who possesses a more in
timato knowledge of tho French lan
cuago ami vcrv few Frenchmen speak
it more perfectly.
His recent lecture at thc Theater

TORY PARTY 1 MOST
DESPERATE STRAITS
New Platform and Another
Leader Its Ony Chance
of Survival.
BONAR LAW LOSES HOLD
1
British People as Hostile la
Tariffs as Germans and
Americans Are.
By PHILLIP EVERETT.
Special Cable to The Tribune.
LONDON". '.lab: With, the new
year thc Tory party will undoubtedly
adopt a new political platform. This
i has been evident since tbo present
leader of the party made his last great'
political speech before Christmas, which
I was interpreted in so many different
; way.s iu tho Conservative press.
; 'J he Dritish Tories have never been
known for jjTeat ast uteuois" in ' polities,
but lately Iht; handwriting on the wall
has been so plain that it could not be
misunderstood.
In the United1 States as well as in
Germany -the- voters have voted strong
ly ugaiubt high tariffs, aud especially
in "tho latter country, against ' al5bd
tariff.
I Law Loses Caste.
I Immediately after Bona:. Law's
; speech t he two London- newspapers,
i which j'epresPiit what may be called
the basic Tory opinion, tho Dnily'Mail
and tho Times, both cou trolled' by
I Lord Xorthcliffo, began f.he work of
j weaning Bonar Law from the error of
I his ways. His politic are no longer
! tho politics of tho party.
For nine years the rood taxes have
! been weighed and uow they bavo fiTj
1 ally been found wanting and when the
food taves fall, down goos the whole
1 phantasmagoria of colonial preference
land "trade within tho ompirc. '"
! At. the beginning of the new year
tho leader of tho once great and pow
orful Tory party, Bonar Law. is a
! general w'ithout an array, because he
1 still stand-3 upon tho .ancient .ways of
protectionism, and oven proposes to
! revive, under the name of imperial
i fedoratiou. tho mutual interference of,
! England aud the colonies ' with each
j othor's business, which nearly a ccn
turv and u half ago lost England thc
United' States, and which, if carried
out today, would certainly result in
tho loss by England of her great over
seas dominions.
Want Balfour Back. j
Tho Consorvativo party today is
like a defeated and. routed army to--ing
to pather its troops in new posi
tions under tho violent fire of tho eu
emy, for tho radical press, of course,
13 fully aware of tbo confusion in tho
othor camp and makes tho most of it.
As to what thc Tory platform for 1.9.1iJ
will bo it ib very hard to mako a
guesrs at tho present time. Certain it
is that Bonar Law's days as leader
arc numbered, and that th oonly thing
which keeps him in tho saddlo is the
fact that tho real leaders ronlizo tho
truth of tho old saying: "Don't nwap
horC5 whilo crossing n stream.'
Who will succeed Bonar Law7 It is
not eaov to say. The deadly contest
for Balfour 'a ruantlo still smolders
and tho two .men whoso opposition to
each othor rcsullod in Law's elevation,
to the leadership, Austen Chamberlain
and Waltor Loner, aro as implacablo
foes aa over. "Neither of them seems
to lako the slightest interest in tho
homo rules debates.
Perhaps wo shall oneo moro sco Bal
four back, if ho will consent to en
deavor to save hitf ungrateful party
from the hopeless eul-do-sac in which it
finds itsolf at. present.

Special Cable to Tho Tribune.
PARIS, Jan. A. M. Dcgur, thc famous
painter whose plcturo of two ballet danc
ers recently fetched the record breaking
price of $78,000, Is an original character,
lie la never seen in Paris, and knows
nothing of what Is going on here, emerg
ing from his hermitage only to visit the
Salon once or twlco a year In mufti and
shake his head at the erratic productions
of the extremist painters.
Begaz lias always been an enthusiastic
lover of solitude from the days when he
sold his llrst paintings and lived In a
ramshackle house on' Monlmurtro with an
old servant. He Is otlll true to his love
now that he can afford a decent house
at Neullly. When told that the puolic
was naturally interested In tho person of
the great, painter whoso work had been
bought at tho highest price ever puld for
a work by a living artist, his clear, gray
eyes lit up and ho exclaimed with con
siderable fervor:
" 'The publh; be damned,' T think an
.Vmerlcan once suld, and 1 ugrc.e with
him. I care no more for the public than
thu public cares for me, which Is not a
groat deal. They know nothing of art
and I do not caro for money, I lifcppcn I
t have painted a couple of dancers and
because the public. Is Interested In danc
ers Just now. my puor canvas was sold
at a. ridiculously high prion, which cer
tainly la nut going to turn my head
"Tho American lady who bought the
picture undoubtedly had more money than
she knew what to do with and I wondnr
If ahc will ever look at it again, when
sho gets tired showing It to her friends,
who know as little about art as she prob
ably does herself."

1R SHADOW ROMS
AUSTRIAICOMMERGE
Military Party .Wants' to
Fight at Any Price, but
Emperor Refuses.
Special Cablo to Tho Tribune.
VTENiVA, Jan. -I. Austria enters
into the new year under exceedingly
distressing circumstances. Not only
havo tho eojitinuous mobilizations most !
unexpectedly torn thousands of young1
men away from their positions at a
time of the year when business is nor
mally exceedingly brisk, but thc gen
oral feeling of uncertainty has ruined
many prosperous business bouses and
ncarh' brought commerce and trade to
a point of absoluto stagnation, ns no
body baa been nblo to mako calcula
tions of any kind iu regard to the fu
ture. It is generally acknowledged that
tho statesmen who have moldod Aus
tria's foreign policies since it first be
came evident, that thc Balkan allios
were to be successful are completely
out of touch with the people among
the masses, of whom there is praetical
v no opposition to Servia 's demand
for a port on the Adriatic.
Tbo excitement i" Austria may with
out o.vaggeratiou be said to be cntirc-I-
due to the intrigues of urmy offi
cers, eager to go to war ou any fire
text, aud once more the wholo nation
is deep!' in debt to the aged emperor,
who ironi the very liist put his foot
down againt. the plans of tho war
party, even Ihoutjh thc war party had
the "strong support of tho heir ap
parent. Thc greatest credit in also duo io the
patriotic Count Aehrenthal, who nn
spit 0 of the insults and ridicule that
were heaped upon him by the military
war parly, did not vacillate a moment
or deviate a hnir's breadth from his
determination to localize the Balkan
War..

"Gift'1 -of Dreadnaughts Is!

Becoming Too Ambitious.
Special Cablo to Tho Tribune.
LONDON, Jan. As was natural,
Canada's tender of seven million pounds,
with threo dreadnaughts, to th British
navy was cordially greeted all over Eng
land as a token of the strong tics of af
fection that still link the Dominion of
Canada tj the mother country. But tho
llrst Impulse of Joy was followed by a
reaction among those who look deeper
Into thu naturo of things.
Iu the llrst place the Canadian offer
stirred up a great deal of excitement In
C.-niiany, wjiich It would Lave been bet
ter for botn countries to havo avoided,
and especially It wdiild hav been belter
If Germany had not. and not o,ulte with
out rea.-on. conceived the JuVa that tho
Canadian offer whs not pult- spontaneous
nnd that England had practically gone
bogging among hir colonics.
Ii:t, leaving this asldo, It has not es
caped the notice of the TSngllsh people
that there was a Ptrlng to Canada's gift,
which made it practicnlly only a loan
of a certain number of warships, to bo
ready to go back acro.'s tho Atlantic
whenever Canada wanted them at home.
In return for this gift, or loan, tho
Dominion wants to exert a vary strong
Inllueuco upon British " foreign politics
and this demand Is exceedingly apt to
lead to unforsccn complications, which
may disturb tho present good relations.
Thc number of thinking mt-n In ISng
lund who fear and distrust this new fea
ture of Imperialism Is rapidly growing.
