GERMAN LIBERALS
FIGHT FOR POWER
Debate on Constitutional Amend*
ment Resolution Will .Be
Held December 2
Plan to Compel Representative
Government by Cutting Off
Money Appropriations
BERLIN, Nov. 22. — The debate In
the reichstag on the motions intro
duced by the socialists and radicals,
demanding changes In the constitution
with the object of making the chan
cellor and ministers responsible to par
liament and giving the sole power to
the reichstag to declare war, will prob
ably begin on December 2. The de
hate is expected to last, one day, or
two days at the most.
The advanced liberals, whose aim is
to convert the German political system
Into a government responsible to par
liament, do not anticipate much from
the present reichstag. because In the
<ays when feeling ran the highest the
party leaders would not agree to urge
the simplest resolution of censure or
Inquiry.
The radicals and socialists count
upon making their first great cam
paign in the elections of 1912 unless
the house is dissolved sooner. The
power of the associated monarchies
forming the German empire is en
trenched in two principal ways — In the
bundesrath. which has equal legisla
tive powers with the reichstag. and
In the conservative and clerical parties,
which have, under the ancient system
of the reichstag electoral districts, the
means for holding the majority in that
body by about a third of the votes
cast.
BIXDESn.VTH IS BAR
The bundesrath, which consists of 58
members appointed by the sovereigns
of the states of Germany, except one
each from Hamburg, Bremen and Lu
r«pck, stands directly across the path
of a government responsible to the
elected representatives of the people.
The kings, grand dukes, dukes and
princf-s who rule the federated states,
also through ministers responsible to
them alone, while willing to unite In
limiting the freedom of initiative and
speech on the part of the king of Prus
sia as emperor, are one with him In
their determination to resist represent
ative government. Fourteen votes in
the bundesrath against any amendment'
to the constitution" will suffice for -its
rejection. The emperor, as king of
Prussia, nominates 17 of the members, ;
and as a consequence there is no pos- \
slble chance for th«*adoptlon of ac
amendment without his consent. '""
The radicals and socialists do not
doubt that by cutting off the money
appropriations they could in the end
compel the monarch to grant a full
representative government, but they
must first command a majority in the
reichstag, and that seemingly is only
possible through a prolonged and over
whelming agitation for a rearrange
ment of electoral districts, so that thei
artisan classes in the industrial cen
ters shall have equal ballot rights with
the protected food growing interests,
which are opposed to a change.
XO CII AXGE IV BOUNDARIES ': • |£j \
There has been 'no change in the
boundaries of the reichstag constitu
encies since the empire was formed.
During the interval of 37 years the
populations have increased from 41,
000,000 to 63.000,000. The weight of the
population has shifted from the coun
try to the town districts, hence it is
possible for 34 per cent of the popula
tion to choose 56 per cent of the par
liament.
The conservatives elect a member
with an average of 18.232 votes and the
Pcialists with an average of 75,971
The socialists in 1907 polled 3,259,029
tes and have 43 members in the
iohstag. The conservative parties,
ivitli 1. 543, 741 votes, have S5 members,
and the clerical center, with 2.145,038
ballots, have 104 members. Berlin, with
a population entitling it to 13 seats, is
permitted to elect only six members,
while some of the other large cities are
rppresent^d in a similar ratio.

MAN OF MANY NAMES
AT ST. FRANCIS HOTEL
Adopts Several Cognomens and
Finally Disappears From
Sight
. Officials of the Hotel St. Francis have
been baffled, by the queer antics of a
well dressed young man who visited
the hostelry late Saturday night, and
who, In the course of several hours,
gave half a dozen different names. And
the hotel attaches are puzzled to know
how It was that such a bold young
man should have "stung" the hotel.
When he disappeared frdm the place,
after having given his many names, he
left a gold watch and chain and an
overcoat with the room clerk, which
will be held until the stranger returns
to settle his bill.
Jumping out of a coupe in front of
the hotel the man gave the name of
H. E. Jones. Later lie announced that
he was James Carlton Wall and added
that he was a rich contractor. Before
he had proceeded far Wall became A.
A. Dayton of Alameda. Entering the
elevator Dayton was transformed into
Cramer. A bottle of wine was ordered,
not by Cramer, but by E. C. Cunning
ham — the same man. The wine was
refused and when Cunningham ap
peared at the hotel office In the morn
ing, apparently penniless, he gave over
his watch and announced that he was
8. C. Sheridan, an actor.
"Yes, you are an actor," said the
clerk — "a. bad one." '\u25a0
No charge was preferred against the
mysterious "guest, but an. effort Is be
ing made to determine Just who the

ary Measures, Against the
Revolutionaries
PEKING, Nov. 22.— While all is quiet
in Peking, detachments of troops guard
the city gates and gendarmes are oh
duty at the approaches to the foreign
le'gatlons. The government has not
ceased to take precautionary measures
for revolutionaries are ••spreading all
kinds of reports which might act like
firebrands to the spirit of uneasiness
underlying present conditions In China.
There have been rumors of an in
surrectionary movement in the south,
but this has proed to be only a. minor
outbreak among the artillery and cav
alry stationed at Nanking.
Nevertheless it has been though ad
visable to post a guard at each. of;the
gAtes of Peking and half companies
of Chinese. regulars are now under arms
at these' points. -,'-
It was' owing to one of these dis
turbances "that the edict of November
20 was issued, in which it was pointed
out .that lawless conspirators had. tried
to. lnvade the interior, and all officials
were ordered to arrest and summarily
behead therh wherever found.

Statement of Francis B. Lbomis, com
missioner general of the United States
to,the Tokyo exposition and former as
sistant secretary of state. .-
After an extended tour of Japan and
China as the United States govern
ment's representative to confer. with the
Japanese exposition commission con
cerning arrangements for the big af
fair, Francis B. Loomis returned yes
terday on the steamer Mongolia. While
he declared: that the United States has
an excellent opportunity to gain the
cream of China's trade, he warned
American shippers that they must at
tain a high standard of perfection in
.the preparation of products for- Chi
nese consumption. At the present tlme^
he declared, American products nave
been given a somewhat bad name be
cause of the poor condition in which
much of the exports reach China. /
CARELESS PACKING
"I heard from a number of authori
tative, responsible sources, both in
China and Japan, that in all the great
oriental commercial centers, such ..as
Shanghai, Canton. Hongkong and Yo :
kohama. that there is a general com
plaint in respect to the careless and
wholly unsatisfactory manner in which
much of the American dried fruits, pre
served fruits, crackers and like articles
are packed and shipped to these far
eastern markets. Two of the Important
men- in China, one a great merchant
and the other a banker, stated to me
that the Chinese are very fond of Amer
ican canned preserves and. dried fruits
and * that the market for the latter
might be almost indefinitely Increased,
wefe^lt not for the fact, that a short
time after their arrival in oriental
ports American dried fruits are foufftl
to be either moldy or in a wormy con
dition. ,
- That Japan's emigation policy has
been altered to a* noticeable extent is
evident, according to Loomis. He.de
clared that the . Imperial government
has adopted the policy of keeping its
people at home and to discourage emi
gration to foreign countries. Espe
cially is the government anxious to
check the flow of Japanese to America
and South America,
WILL KEEP PEOPLE HOMES
"There, is- much undeveloped country
in Japanand Korea," said Loomis, ''and
the government* plans to make a great
workshop the country. Marquis Kat
sura, the 'prime minister, stated at a
banquet that It would henceforth be
the^ work of the government to concent
trate its energies to the development of
the Industrial and commercial poten
tialities of the country and that Ja
pan's large population would be kept
at homeland utilized in the development
of all resources."
Of the<Tokyo exposition Loomis said
that it would be held in 1917 and would
be one of the greatest and most unique
fairs ever held. He declared also that
William H. Taffs election was received
with great rejoicing in China and
Japan and that 95 per cent of the Im
portant people of the Japanese empire
announced that they would send con
gratulations at onCfe.
Speaking of the interstate commerce
commission's rulings affecting the trans-
Pacific trade, Loomis declared they
were causing much complaint among
shippers in tho far east.

Rear: Admiral Hollyday Makes
Strong Plea for Bet»
terments
WASHINGTON, Nov. 22.— Rear Ad-
miral R;-C- Hollyday, chief of the bu
reau of yards and docks of the United
States navy, makes a strong plea for
more extensive improvements at insular
stations and for a higher standard in
the maintenance of home navy yards
In his, annual report to the secretary
of the -.navy. ; .. .'
The . estimates for. navy yards and
stations recommended to be submitted
to. congress at Its coming session are as
follows: v - . . ;
.Public-works. 'Including repairs and
preservation.' $9,811,730; maintenance
yards and docks, $1. 500.000; contingent
yards, and docks, \?3o,ooo. Total, $11,
341.730. -..?\u25a0"\u25a0;
The need for additional drydocks Is
urged. All of the principal yards. Ad
miral Hollyday said, should have
structures of sufficient capacity to dock
the largest vessels likely to be built
within tho near future.
The estimates recommended fkor the
various navy yards and stations In
clude:
• Naval station. Cavite. P.' 1., $15,900;
naval -station. Island of : Guam, $44,000;
navy , yard. ; Mare island, Cal., } $1,776.

Puget. sound. $1,391,000; naval station,
Tutuila, Samoa, $5,500.
The . need for more civil engineers

for officers and employes are asked
for.

A MOTHER'S PBEA.
Trained Nurse Offers Cure
for Costiveness.^ .
"What in the world can I
do for my three children, who,
it seems, have inherited cos-
tiveness' and all its evils, such
as vomiting. stomachache,
headaches^ dullness, languor,
fever 'and' thinness of flesh?
I have tried dieting and break-
fast foods, fruits and patent
medicines; but the trouble
grows worse and I am nearly
distracted." .
This mother voices the ex-
perience of thousands.
A trained nurse and well-
known matron of one of our
largest eastern hospitals offers
the following as the best and
most reliable harmless remedy
that is known: -
Just go to any well-stocked
drug store and get "one ounce
aromatic fluid cascara." "one
ounce compound essence car-
diol," and "two ounces aro-
matic syrup rhubarb." Mix all
in a bottle, shake, and adults
take from y2y 2 to 2 teaspoonfuls
after each meal, while chil-
dren gleefully take from " five
drops to a teaspoonful, accord-
ing to ?ge. Use this freely
whenever occasion demands.
