NEW BRITISH .CABINET
IS COOLLY RECEIVED
Even Premier Balfour's Own Par

MORE CHANGES ARE EXPECTED.

London. -Aug; 9. The new Cabinet list,
which involves the resignations of Sir -.
' Gorst, vice president of the Board of Edu
cation; Lord Raglan. Parliamentary Secre
tary to the War Office, and Jesse Collings,
Parliamentary Secretary to the Home Of
fice, tends to show that Premier Balfour Is
experiencing considerable difficulty, and
probably obstruction as well, in the re
arrangement cf the ministry, -which evi
dently h still incomplete
There are still many anticipated resigna
tions and promotions. With these are con
nected the names or the Earl of Halsbury.
Lord George Hamilton. Secretary of Stale
for India, Viscount Crabcrne. under secre
tary to the Foreign Office: Gerald Balfour,
president cf the Board of Trade, and other
who have not yet been announced.
Cbanci-i Awaken Ao Eathoilum.
The changes the Premier has succeeded in
effecting excite no cnthus.asm. even in bis
own party The Dally News dubs it "Bal
i four's Kaleidoscope" and the conservative
newspapers are fain to confess that the
Cabinet changes are rather a reshuffling
than a strengthening of the ministry.
No striking ability has been introduced
Into the Government among the new names.
The admission of George "Wyndham, Chief
Secretary for Ireland, to the Cabinet ana
the appointment of Austen Chamberlain as
Postmaster General are generally wel
comed, but great disappointment is ex
pressed on aH sides that the Marquis ot
Londonderry, who is thought to have proved
a failure as Postmaster General, should be
placed in the new and Important post of
President of the Board of Education.
The disappearance of St J. Gorst is rather
regretted and is thought probably to be
dne to his always outspoken criticism of tho
Soma among the new men are csnsidcred
to be promising, but on the whole the
changes are thought to be safe, rather than
brilliant. Perhaps the most remarkable ap
pointment is that of Andrew Bonar Law
as Parliamentary Secretary to the Board or
Iron Merchant Ong of the -Appointees.
Mr. Law is an iron merchant of Glasgow
and was bom in 1ES. .He is a -son of the
Reverend James Law of New Brunswick.
He has only sat in Parliament lor two
years, and has only spoken about twice
since "he was elected;- but upon the?, oc
casions he revealed great intellectual power.
T0 in a. man of rood business -capacity,
3ut, being only a business man and with
out powerful connections, his choice for the
office allotted hint oy the Tory "Premier is
considered unusual, if not surprising.
It is fully expected that further changes
-In the Cabinet will be made during the au
tumn session of Parliament.
In response to a question put by John G.
Butcher, Conservative member of the'House
xf Commons, regarding the advisability of
( appointing a member of the royal family to
' "be Viceroy of Ireland, with a permanent
residence there. Premier Balfour said that
1 such a step might possibly be advisable, but
' that It would entail prolonged controversies

Newport, R L, Aug. 9 The dinner for
Miss Neilson on Thursday night, which was
given by her mother. Mrs. Frederick Neil
son, at the Casino, was one of the most
elaborate of the summer.
The part, composed of fifty-two persons,
was one of the largest eer gathered for
dinner in Newport. Moreover, the mtnu
was very elaborate and the general appoint
ments were superb.
The guests were seated at a horeshoe
shaped table, spread in the inclosed piazza,
connected with the Casino grillroom. The
apartment had been transformed for the oc
casion into a most attractive dining-haii,
ornamented with hangings of deep red and
brilLant with electric light eEt?cts, and
roses arranged by Wadley & Smythe. Tne
draperies were hung upon the walls in pan
els, between which v-ere fes'ooned ropes of
laurel and white roses.
In the corners were groups of small or
ange trees, in full fruit, and elsewhere
were grouped palms and foliage plants.
Numerous tiny electric lights were suspend

her engagement marked the change In the
spelling, and Newport society is interestedd
In knowing Just -why the "KT was dropped.
It may be that young Mr. Vanderbilt is
responsible for the relegation of the "K."

The announcement of a Vanderbilt en-
gagement is not only a very important so-
cial event, but it is one which interests
even body. Mr. Vanderbilt has Just com
pleted his majority and was a student this
year at Tale. Miss Neilson made her debut
at Newport summer before last. She is still
a very young girl, and has barely reached
her twentieth year. The courtship of these
young people has lasted about a year. So
ciety took the greatest interest in it. Last

Opposition to Encasement.
The engagement has been as frequently
rumored and as frequently denied. In fact,
there has been some opposition, not on the
part of Mrs. Vanderbilt, the mother of Reg
inald Vanderbilt alone, nor again on that of
Mrs. Neilson, but a concerted action by
both mothers, for the simple and only rea
son that they thought their children too
young to wed.
The stories that Mrs. Vanderbilt objected
to Miss Neilson on account of ner religion
she being a Roman Catholic are denied by
friends of both families. Mrs. Vanderbilt
has always besn opposed to her son's mar
rying very early in lite. She was a bit re
luctant to sanction the early wedding of
Alfred to Miss French. She wanted him to
travel around the world and to become set
tled. But when she tound that &he could
not successfully oppose the young people
she gave a most gracious consent.
Tbe Vanderbllts have a predilection for
marrying early in life. The sons of TVm. H.
Vanderbilt were all benedicts with the one
exception of George before they had com
pleted their thirtieth jeer. "Wm. K. and
ComeUus married when very young.

years old. Is the youngest son of the late
Cornelius and Mrs. Vanderbilt, who was

known merchant. Miss G wj nne -was a mere
girl when she became bride.
Mrs. Vanderbilt is a distant connection of
the late "Ward McAllister and of the famous
Butler family of the Carolinas, Into which
the beautifnl actress, Fanny Kemble, mar
ried. The eldest daughter or Mr. and Mrs.

SYSTEM OF UNDERVALUATION.
Believed That the Fraud Has Been
Practiced for Twenty Years
Estimated Loss More
Than a Million.
New Tork. Aug. 9. Evidence has "been
laid before Secretary of the Treasury Shaw
which points to the existence of a scandal
in the Imports of china and pottery, in
volving losses to the Government exceed
ing even the amounts lost through the
frauds in Japanese silks.
It is tsserted by experts, who are not
themselves interested in the matter, that a
system of undervaluation ha" been prac
tised for the last twenty 3 ears which has
caud a loss to the Treasury of from SL
OWS (W to $1,50000 a year
While it has been known for several
years that rhis loss was going on. persis
tent efforts to correct it were nullfled by
the inertness or hostility of Government of
ficials. Astonishment was expressed to-day that
the determined attitude of the S"cretary of
the Treasury and the new officials ap
pointed by him had not served as a warn
ing to dishonest importers.
It was said that frauds have been de
tected In still another line of imports and
that when an investigation that Is now in
progress is finished disclosures of a start
ling nature will be made.
Not only has Secretary Shaw been asked
to put an end to the alleged undervaluations
of pottery, but the facts bav e been submit
ted to President Roosevelt, who is said to
be taking a personal interest In -the case.
The complaint was made by men Interested
in the pottery industry of the United
States, the headquarters of which are In
Trentcn. N. J.
They declare that the wages paid abroad
are less than one-third of those paid in
Ihis country, and that if the duty provided
by law is not collected here they will ba
placed at the mercy cf the foreign pro
ducers. When Appraiser Whitehead was asked to
day whether an investigation was in pro
gress in resrard to the charges made by the
pottery manufacturers he replied:
"1 regard it as my duty to appraise mer
chandise and to make my report to the
Collector of the Port. I have abso'utely
nothing to say in relation to the matter."
it is asserted by men -who are in a posi
tion to know whet has been gome on in
the -appraisal tit tU,ry that tbe underI
valuations have averaged nbout one-third
for many years. The Trenton pottery mak
ers say tbe period covered by the alleged
frauds is not less than twenty years.

their blankets about a smouldering c&ssp
fire, the Preeident of the United States, his
two sons. Archie and Kennet. and fcl

last nicht. Their camp was in an Isolated
forest near Cold Spring Harbor, and iso
one but the members of the President

treat the President had promised his bojfB.
Tinpkng with the excitement of the hoir.
Arcnie drew his rifle from his pack sad
with a whooo started off into the darkest
part o fthe woods.

laughed, but called to him to come backJj
"Its t&o late for bear." he said, "anapl

The President struck cut into the -woofis
and a-ter a ten minutes' walk they cams "to
a small stream.
"Willi follow this brook hack about a
quarter of a mile and we'll come to a beau
tifnl :;pring." said the President, "and there
we'U stretch our legs for the night."
"Pi pa. how do you know there's a ;"t'4f
there"" asked Kermit.
"My son. I know it was there three yean
ago .and springs, you know, don't move
awaj like summer boarders."
And sure enough they found the sprlntr
bubbling from beneath a great rock Just as
the President promised they would find it.
Then they built a crackling fire near the
Fpnng and the President .taught the boys
I bow to prepare a deUcious supper over the
coals. They had brought with thexa some
steak, chicken, potatoes and corn which
were roasted over the fire and they tasted
much better than any dinner the boys had
ever eaten in the "Whtle House or at Saxa
moreHUl. When tbe supper was finished beds et
hemlock boughs were made and the "blank
ets spread over then. Then the fire was
stirred until the embers glowed brightly
and with his boys seated in a circle about
him, the President told them many tirrOUng
stories of other camp fires where there -were
no Presidents and no secret service men
diking near to protect them from hana.
At length little Hermit's eyes grew heavy
and all wrapped themselves In their blsn-L
kets and slept like weary soldiers. Wltlfi
the first gleam of daylight they rolled out
of their blankets and rekindled the fire lor
breakfast. When the sun came np they
were well out in the bay and long before
any one was stirring an Sagamore Hill the
President was seated at his library desk,
fresh as a scnoolboy, attending to the busi
ness of the greatest Republic on earth.
