SEE NO DANGER OF A COLLAPSE What Is to become of the Progres le party? This Is a problem that Is Interesting the leaders of the two older parties an Roll as the Hull Mooso chiefs. Whether tho party Is allvo or dead, the Progressive vote Is admitted to be one if the most vital Issues In the 1916 Presidential election. Tho question Is being discussed nil over the country. Republicans and ! Democrats are Kivln Ihnt mini- nt lh Democrats are saying that many of the olea that were cast for Theodore , Roosevelt In tho last Presidential elec- . tion will be cast next year for a Demo- crat or a Republican. The Sun, believing tha. It Is one of th, vital political problems of the day, has submitted three questions to some nf the most prominent rrogressle lead ers of the country. Tho questions fol low; What will be the future of tho Progressiva party and along what lines should Its futuro activities be directed If It Is to survive? I'ndrr what circumstance would an amalgamation with tho Republi can party be possible? If tho Progressive party Is weak ened by desertions, will the Demo cratic) party gain recruits from the Progressives and for what reasons? The consensu! nf opinion from those ! reached by The Sun Is that unlen one of the old parties conies around to the constructive principles of tho Progres sive party the Hull Moose will be In the field In 1916 with a. national ticket. The Progressiva movement Is bound to go on, It is believed by Its leaders, whether or not the rank and file vote Republican or Democratic ticket. It is admitted by some that there will have to be radical changes In tho Republican policies before there will be any material amount of desertions to that party from the Progressive ranks. Some great barriers have been swept away, but others still stand. At all evenU, tho Progressive leaders are watching tho trend of affairs In both rival parties for hopeful signs of a Pro- gresslvo awakening. Some of the onln- i ions of tho Progressive leaders follow: nr Mii.r.s poi.m)i:.vti:ii. U. 8. Senator from Washington. WASiUNUTON, JHn. 31.

There Is fundamentally a vital differ- n,i litwwii lll.piMlH mill cimsrvu- lives, or progrealves and reactiona ries, whether In one party or the other Progressive. Democratic or Re publican. "This difference will continue. It Is the natural political division, and when ome great concrete Issue of vital In- terest to the people Is presented party division will take place along this line. "So far as the practical present situ- atlon Is concerned the Progressive party haa claimed all along to bo the party of Lincoln Republicanism. It ulso fa vors a reasonable protective tariff, It believes that under existing conditions an active and powerful Federal Govern- ment Is essential.

A woman servant slept some dis tance away from tho rooms occupied by the four who were killed and she didn't hear anything, nor did tenants of other apartments In the house. Money Troubles, Sny ItrUtlTei.

Special CabU teepatch to Tns flef. London, Jan. 31. The Copenhagen correspondent of the Dally News says a alight Indisposition caused by the severe weather In northern France compelled the return of the Kaiser to nerlln to day. His entry Into Che Ocrman capital was kept secret and no one observed him. He Is suffering from a chill and It Is understood that lie will not return to the front until the weather Improves. A despatch from Rotterdam to tho Dally Hail cays: "The Kaiser's return to Rcrlln has been followed by great depression among the German troops, 2,000 of whom huvo been sent to th east front because they openly protested against being employed In further attacks near tho Tser. Nevertheless, large German reenforce ments are proceeding In the direction of Ypres, and a huge concentration Is tak ing place In tho Roulers and Courtral districts." According to a despatch from Rotter dam the Herlln correspondent of the Conrrtst of that city, discussing reports that the Kaiser has been aged by the war, says ne has seen a striking new portrait of the Kmperor, which shows his features to be sharp, his cheek bones and nose prominent and his hair white! wt the temples. Kverythlng one formerly regarded as typical of the Kaiser's face, J he says, lias disappeared, and he gives . the Impression of a simple, aged officer, staring earnestly. The correspondent quotes a perscn who lately has seen tho Kaiser at his headquarters as saying: "Hts appearance shocked me.

GERMANS BLAMED FOR RIOTS IN ITALY Agitation in Jinny Citios Ts Iiiu'd by Police tn Forciiit'i'iS. Romk, Jan. 31.

Tho riots In Sicily, the strike In Flor ence and thu agitation In other cities. Including Rome, were organized, tho po lice found, by German agents, who liavo been bribing labor leudcrs and financing speculators to corner wheat, and coop erating iu tho artlllcial ruling of tho prlco of bread. Several Germans are said to have been cnught red handed III Sicily and arrested. Other arrests und wholesale expulsions aro imminent. Sensational developments are expected as a result of the discovery of this latest phaso of German activity, which very probably may culminate In the departure of Prince von Huelow, the special Oerman Ambassador, from Rome. King Victor Kminanuel signed to-day the decree drafted at yestcrduy's Cabi net council abolishing tho customs duty on wheat for u period of live months, reducing by half thu railroad and steamship tariff for the transportation of wheat, authorizing tho Government to requisition wheat, Hour and other cereals hoarded for purposes of specu lation, and If necessary to rcgulnte the bread making nnd the sale of flour and bread.
