BERLIN, Feb. 5. For the first time
In Germany's history, the liberal or so
cialistic parties will wield the balance
of power 'when the Relschstag con
venes Wednesday. By combination of
the 110 Socialists, 48 National Liberals
and 49 Radicals, they will hare a ma
jority of thirteen over the combination
of Clericals, Conservatives and allied
The changed aspect of the Relsch
tag as a result of. the recent national
elections, is of great Import to all Ger
many, and to Europe as well. It means
that in many of the pet measures of
the Kaiser and his Ministers, Instead
of being "railroaded" through the Ger
man Parliament will meet with stern
The three progressive parties of the
left are united against the conserva
tives on all matters of international
economy. They will pull together for a
reduction of the burdensome taxation
system and the prohibitive tariffs
which have Impoverished the poorer
classes of the country, and they will
stand together in Insisting on a reap
portionment of the Relschtag districts
for the next national election.
As the districts are now portioned
out, the conservatives are able, In their
strongholds, to elect the same num
ber of members to the Relschstag on
less than half as many votes as are re
quired In the districts where the Lib
erals are strong. Under an equitable
apportionment, the liberals of the last
recent, election would have received a
majority of delegates nearly twice as
large as the one now possessed by the I
casting of the same number of ballots

of the most bitterly fought measures
that will come before the approaching
session, and it la certain to be Intro
duced, according to declarations of lib
eral leaders. It will be more than vio
lently opposed) however, by the con
servative parties, and the Kaiser him
self is naturally set strongly against It.

Thus, all the parties of the left wing
are as one in matters of Internal Inter- j
est As to matters of foreign policy, it
Is different. The National Liberal party
which has but 64 votes, will vote
against the Socialists and Radicals and
with tho conservatives on all matters
of national armament and defense,
which means'1 that the time-honored
policy of warlike preparedness advo
cated years ago by the great Bismarck
will continue to hold forth. For the
swinging of the National Liberal's
votes to the Right, will turn the ma
jority that way.
Accordingly the National Liberals
are strong enough to win victory on
every measure they favor. They hold
precisely the same position In the
Relschtag as Is held In the British Par
liament by the Irish Nationalists, who
can swing the vote either way by al
lying themselves with whichever party
they choose to support on a bill.

Capt. Walnwrlght was among the first

BURNING OF WIDOWS.
The Horrible Rite India Maintained
For Ovtr Twenty Centuries.
The abolition of the horrid rite of
widow burning In India was decreed
by the British authorities in 1820.
The dreadful practice was found
there by the Macedonians under Alex
ander the Great 300 years before
Christ, and for more than twenty-one
long, weary ceuturles did it repeat its
almost inconceivable torture and ago
ny uon the women of India. The
sacrifice, while not actually forced on
the wife, was so strongly insisted on
by public opinion that it amounted to
a law, and its victims were legion.
Scores of widows were often burned
upon the funeral pile of a single ra
jah. In Bengal, the head center of
the monstrosity, thousands were sac
rificed annually, and the figure for all
India was appalling.
The millions of widowed women
Were completely at the mercy of the
remorseless superstition of the times.
The ministers of Brahmanism told
the widow that her sacrifice was nec
essary as a means of her own happi
ness and that of her husband in the
future state, and oftener than other
wise she consented to be burned along
with the dead body of ber husband.
Unless she did this she was covered
with the maledictions and curses of
the people, was virtually outlawed
and unceremoniously cast outside the
pale of human sympathy and consid
eration and had to spend the rest of
her days In degradation and wretch
edness. It was death on the funeral
pile of her husband or a living death
of contumely and shame, of loneliness
The women of India can never dis
charge their debt of gratitude to Eng
land for the abolition of the suttee.
