Ontario County Organ Supports the

[By Teletrspb to This ""-■'• :-* ]
Rochester. Nov. 2*.— The politicians of West

to take on the Presidential question are much
interested in the action of the Republican orgar.

disconcerting to the wiseacres who have been
proclaiming for months • hat the organisation
leaden of the stat« were bitter toward the Gov

Legislature they would be arrayed against him.
Senator Raines opposed Governor Hughes*
policy in relation to Otto Kelsey. and on the
strength of his eupport cf his old frier.d th»
Insurance Superintendent he has been fre
quently represented as the leader of "old guard' 1
Implacability to reform ideas. Now he ar.d his

Notwithstanding statements of this and that

The paper declares that Governor Hughes Is
not seeking the nomination, will not lift a finger
to secure It and would not accept it from the
political bosses, and that if the people -want
him they must take the Initiative and extend
the call. The article continues:
Happily the peosla of New York, though re
luctant to contemplate his retirement from the
office of the chief executive of the state recog
rize the fact that Governor Hughes has become
a figure of national Interest and Importance. In
a Mason when people are aroused against capi
tal in general, and are ready to call all corpora
tions tyrants, and when financial interests are
perturbed and resentful against the wholesale
war that Is making upon their enterprise and
thrift, he Is recognized as a statesman who is
constructive rather than destructive, who is
as moderate and fair as he Is fearless, and who
is at once sane and progressive. The public
service law, enacted at his Instance by the last
Legislature, seems destined to solve the prob
lem of the control of public Fervlce corpora

DEFENDS THE EMPEROR
SPEECH BY FOX BVELOW.
Also Resents Attacks on German
. Army and Himself.
Berlin. Nov. — To-day's sitting of the
Reichstag was notable for the energetic speech
of Prince yon Buelow. the German Imperial
Chancellor, in defence of the army, the Emperor
and himself. In replying to Dr. Spahn. the
leader of the Centre party, who had asserted
that present conditions In the army recalled
those of anclsnt heathen Rome, th» Chancellor
declared that no one Imagined that the whole
army was affected by a few instances of un
worthfness. the rooting out of which, the Chan
cellor assured the house, would be attended to
by the Emperor, "than whom bo one strove
more for a high tone of morality In both the
army and the nation.
It was the Crown Prince, he said. who had
called his father's attention to articles in th«
"Zukunft" disclosing corruption, with the result
that immediate action was taken. He pointed
out that neither the Chancellor nor the min
isters could take such a step without holding
proofs of their assertions.
Prince yon Billow then referred to the so
called "court camarilla," which is widely al
leged to have been influencing th«« Emperor's
decisions. No on«», he .«a!d\ even had accused
the Emperor of being without hie own will, and
the camarilla ••;'.'! only exist where th« mon
arch Tvas -ailllnff. Such a poisonous growth as
a camarilla, he declared, was utterly un-Gerraaa.
and reports regarding Its existence could be
taken as being without foundation.
In concluding his address the Chancellor
denied the assertion that he had dissolved the
last Reichstag In order to protect himself
against personal attacks relative to his sup
posed participation in Intrigues. The reason
for such Rction. he said, was the obstruction
offered by the Centra party, which desired to
pit Its Ftrength against tha nation's will. "Any
Chancellor." he eald. "who submitted to such a
course would have forfeited the confidence of
the nation." The Chancellor promt to take
part In the Budget debate to-morrow.

Literal Interpretation of Bible Story.
London, Nov. 28.— Bar. R. J. Campbell, pastor
of the City Temple, provoked angry Interruptions
from his congregation while preaching in the tem

believed the story of Christ feeding the multitude
in Its literal sense.
"The feeding of the multitude was not a feeding
of the body, but « feeding of the soul with the
bread of life," he said. "It Is a beautiful symbol,
but the beauty Is destroyed and the teaching ruined
when it is sought to reduce It to a physical plane."
The clergyman was interrupted by cries of "No!"
but he asked to be allowed to continue, ani then
"If Christ cam* to London He would not be re
ceived gladly by His Church. He would be regard
ed as a revolutionary engaged in trying to upset
the established order In both Church and State.
He would not attempt to perform the miracle of
feeding a multitude In the East End with physical
food, but He would strike deep and hard at the
causes which make poverty and degradation." The
