Y. tr* CHAMBERLAIN IS SAVED Dexterous and Extraordinary Speech by Premier Balfour Rescues the Government.* London, June 11.By a dexterous and extraordinary speech. Premier Balfour last night temporarily smoothed over the dif ferences in the cabinet, relieved Colonial Secretary Chamberlain of any necessity of resigning and for the moment averted a crisis which threatened the unionist party. This Balfour accomplished with out committing the government either to protection or free trade, tho the effect of his speech will generally be taken to mean that the tariff issue is to be shelved for the present. Henry Chaplin's amendment, which gave rise to the most interesting debate of the present parliament, was defeated by the overwhelming majority of 396 votes, com posed of unionists, liberals and Irish mem bers. The minority, who supported Chap lin's amendment, are almost all follow ers of the government, while many oth ers of the conservative party abstained from voting. It was 10:30 o'clock when Premier Bal four sprang to his feet to reply to the taunts of the opposition and appeals from his own party. For two days the house of commons has rung with echoes of dis sensions within the cabinet and dissatis faction without. The premier was loudly cheered. He had scarcely begun to deal with Mr. Chap lin's amendment before he was interrupted with a hurricane of applause and ironical cheers at the entry of Chamberlain, who had been absent hitherto thruout the eve The colonial secretary dropped into his accustomed place. - In a whimsical vein Balfour explained that the only reason that the corn tax was p.ut on was because the government wanted money, and the only reason it was taken off was because the government wanted money no longer. He declared that he himself, tho a believer in free trade, which statement called out loud applause, did not regard it as a fetish, and he had absolutely an open mind re garding the necessity for an alteration in a system which was founded to suit conditions of fifty years ago. He refused not only to make a state ment of any finality upon such an im portant question, but he also refused to compel his colleagues to conform to a standard of opinion upon which he himself had an open mind. He admitted that dif ferences of opinion existed within the cab inet, but these were not serious enough to cause the resignation of any member. Mr. Balfour made an Impassioned plea, enforced by the precedents of friction In Gladstone's ministries, for allowing the premier to retain an open mind upon a question so difficult and so superior to all party issues. The speaker did not believe' the country would ever return to the old protective system, and no tax on food was ever Imposed without the full assent of the working classes. They were con fronted, however, continued the premier, by three great phenomenahuge tariff walls against the United Kingdom the growth of the trusts and the desire of the colonies for closer fiscal union with the mother country. These factors would not be ignored. He maintained that the method of starting a public discussion was the only way to deal with these phenome na, tho he did not commit himself to Chamberlain's more advanced program. This non-committal speech, with all the eloquence and magnetism which Balfour wields so successfully, for an open mind not only in the cabinet, but in the union ist party, brought a constant salvo of cheers. Chamberlain sat beside the leader of the house, beaming with satisfaction. The members of the house trooped into the lobby to vote against Chaplin's amend ment, the general comment being, "Bal four has saved Chamberlain." The colonial secretary, himself jubilant,' said: "Our friend the enemy is nonplussed this time." A WHOLESALE POISONER Mrs. McKnight Believed to Have Taken the Lives of Eleven People. Detroit, June 11.Bight other persons besides the three to whose murder Mrs. McKnight confessed at Kalkaskia, Mich., investigation shows, have died In the last .fifteen years under circumstances that, in view of the woman's confession, are now thought to be suspicious. All of the eight .were either relatives or intimate friends who died while living with Mrs. Mc Knight, or while she was at their houses. All are said to have shown symptoms that are now believed to indicate strychnine .poisoning. They are: Ernest McKnight, ,the woman's latest husband James Ambrose, her first husband, who died at Alpena in 1887 Mrs. McKnight, the ^ilfe ,of James E. McKnight, who was a part ner of Ambrose Baby Teeple, Mrs. Mc Knight's niece Eliza Chalker, another niece, who died at Grayling in May, 1892 .Sarah Murphy, Mrs. McKnight's sister, who also died at Grayling in February, 1893 a Mrs. Curry, who died in Saginaw Jn 189S while Mrs. McKnight was at her mother's house, and Dorothy Jensen, a child who died in Grayling while under Mrs. McKnight's care during the absence of her mother. . Investigation of these deaths shows that all of these persons except Mrs. Curry .were taken suddenly ill and showed what are now regarded as unmistakable symp toms of strychnine poisoning.
