WO CHANGE IN NAVAL POLICY.
Germany Not Influenced by Reoenl
Berlin, Oct. 23.The German gov
ernment, the Associated Press is in
formed, will ot propose to the reichs
tag an increase in the, navy beyond
the additions previously determined
upon, which were six large cruisers
and thirty-five torpedo boats. Recent
incidents in German-British relations
have not, therefore, influenced the gov
ernment's immediate naval policy ex
cept that unusually heavy outlays will
be asked for the equipment of naval
stations, new docks, etc. These ex
penditures are all that Germany can
conveniently afford. The finance min
ister has been preparing during the
past six months a readustment of the
taxation scheme involving the develop
ment of fresh sources of revenue, but
an imperial loan will also be necessary
to balance the budget of 1906.

of some of its creditors E, J. Becker ol
Kansas City'has been appointed re
ceiver for the Imperial Brewing com

about $625,000. The debts include
$200,000 first mortgage bonds,' $125,000

Stl Petersburg, Oct. 23.On account
of continued meetings at universities,
with steadily increasing attendance,
especially of workmen and other non

to the anti-goyernment propaganda but
also place the participants in graye
danger in case of fire or panic, Em

the right of assembly with especial
reference to university meetings.' The
conference declared that the imme

governing the right of assembly was
imperatively necessary. It recommend

13,000 persons, of whom only a small
portion were students. The gathering

which was easily precipitated in case
of police interference or even a rumoi
