Bsstrir, Jons 17.—At 2 o'clock this
morning returns have been received from
220 out of the 37? electoral districts. In
ninety-eight districts candidates have been
elected; in 122 second ballots will
be necessary. The National Liberals.
Conservatives aad Clericals are holding
their own. The Rich&er Radicals remstn
far behind. Of the ninety-eight deputies
already elected forty-two are counted for
the bill and fifty-six against it. The gov
ernment rained two more new seats and
lost one oid one sines the last report.
Bran*, Jon* !'x —The most conspic
uous two features of today'* returns
bar* been the continued reports of
the Social Democratic fains and
Ricbterist' losses. Early this morning
moat of the news came from the city con
stituencies and tbe list of opposition
deputies grew rspidly. This afternoon,
howffr, tbe dispatches from the agricul
tural districts revealed the other side of
the page. From all that can be learned
it ia reasonably sate to conclude that the
government has certainly lost nothing by
tbe dissolution sad probably von a little.
Election returns from the agricultural
districts and small cities come in slowly,
and the new seats are likely to change
hands in these, The government candi
dates appear to bsva lost slightly where
yesterdsy's balloting resulted in elections,
but in 100 to Lis districts, in which second
ballots seem assured. Use government has
exceptional opportunities to win, espe
cially where the contestants are Radical
Unionists, who opposed the army bill in
the last reicbstag, but who will support it
in the next, if somewhat modi tied. The
National Liberals claim that they will not
loae more than two seats instead of ten,
as predicted, giving tiaem thirty-eight, The
Richter Liberate will have about the aame,
their failure to .draw opposition votes
being the mast surprising feature of tbe
election. The Social Democrats claim
sixty seats, about the number accredited
to them before election. The Conserva
tives and Free Conservatives are likely to
hold their own. Among those elected
were: Von Levetzow, Independent, who
is favorable to tbe army bill and was pres
ident of tbe last reichstag; Weidentcld,
Clerical, defeating Ton Schorlenstein;
Alst, leader of the Dissident Clericals, who
favors the army bill.
The elections, as far as Berlin was
concerned, can be considered almost a
complete triumph kft fee. Socialist party.
Not only hare thetr To;es enormously in
creased since the last elections, but the
proportion of votes between the Radicals
and Social Democrats is such, except in
one ward, that the Radicals practically
have no chance in the second ballots. In
Berlin it is estimated that nearly 80 per
cent, of the electors recorded their votes,
and out of a total of 3T4.010 registered, the
Socialists obtained 152.000, an increase of
nearly one-fifth over the election of I£9o,
Although in the provinces the Socialists
have not been so uniformly successful as
in Berlin, yet the returns are eminently
satisfactory to them, and the results of the
second ballots will undoubtedly mean, as
predicted, great accessions to the Socialist
strength in the reichstag.
The only unfair maneuver, which mijrht
be described as a hit below the belt at the
government. was the action of the Krma
Zfititng , which in the morning published
what it declared to be the term* of Rus
sia's counter proposals lor a treaty of com
merce. These alleged proposals were cal
culated to create the greatest alarm in the
country districts, embodying everything
likeiy to prejudice the (ierman agrarian
interests, and the Krruz Zritunff based on
them a violent attack on the government,
whose cowardice, it ssid, had been taken
advantage of by Russia to make these
almost insulting proposals, which, if ac
cepted, would mean nothing but ruin for
the tierman agricultural interests. The
official organ, the Rrickmtis*ioer, and the
semi-official Surd Deutsche ZeiJuny, in the
evening hastened to pablish emphatic de
nial*. but the mischief had been done, and
the Krru: Zsituny't object gained in hav
ing the fictitious proposals telegraphed
throughout the country, where they un
doubtedly had a material influence ou the
farmers' choice of candidates.
At 10 o'clock this evening the returns
may be summarised thus: In I«Jodistricts
from which reports hav« been received &
deputies were elected, and m the remain
ing *1 new ballots wili b« necessary. Of
the deputies elected 3B wiil vote with the
government snd against it. The parties
working with the government lost three
seats to the opposition, parties working
against the government ended the matter
by losing the same number of seats to
friends of the army bill. The Conserva
tives elected 17 deputies. Social Itomorrats
Clericals 2, Radical Unionists 1, Free
Conservative* 4, Poles 8. l>em»crats 5,
Anti-Semites 3, Independents 2, (iovern
ment Clericals I and National Liberals 2.
The most interesting feature reported un
til now is probably the gains of the Social
Democrats and the Radical Unionists.
Several small election riota were re
ported today from the provinces. In
Strassburg last night shortly after the poll
»as announced the Socialists began parad
ing the streets and shouting foe their can
didate. They refused to disperse, when
the police attacked them. Many of the
rioters cheered for France. The military
eventually broke up the procession and
arrested eight men. Nobody was injured.

Ss Banks Have Yet Applied for These—
The Gala In Gold deserve.
Nrw YORK. June 16.—Tbe clearing house
loan committee met this morning, but did
not issue any certificates. After the meet
ing the members of the committee de
clined to rive any information as to
whether any applications had been re
ceived for loan certificates. As a matter
of fact no certificates could 1* issued to
d«T. because there has not been time for
the directors of any bank to meet and
authorize the necessary application to be
msde therefor. It is not known yet
whether any bank desires to take out cer
tificates. The loan committee, however,
will meet again tomorrow. The ac
tion of the Clearing House Associa
tion in deciding to issue loan cer
tificates is . warmly commended on
erery hand today, and it is conceded
that the announcement of their resolu
tions had a beneficial effect. There waa a
alight tailing ott la the shipments of cur*
rency. It is estimated that the amount
fell a good deal short of f 1.00U.000t The
demand for currency had tbe effect of in
creasing tbe amount ot free gold in the
treasury, and the amount last night ex
ceeded Cr2.000.000, which is a gain of more
than $2,000,000 over last week. But for the
fact that the treasury had to pay out large
aums for pensions, it would show a large
galh fn legal tender which has been re
ceived from banks for currency.
PHILADELPHIA, June ML—Pursuant to
the authority granted by the clearing
house committee, that association began
today the issuance of loan certificstes
bearing B per cent, interest to such banks
as require them. It could not be learned
whether any banks took advantage of the
authority, but as the actton is mainly in
the nature of a precaution against future
stringency' it is not believed that any
loans were asked.

and party entered the carriages at once
and were driven to Ccballos' residence.
Commander Davis said this evening that
his duties ended the moment the princess*
foot touched the platform, the nation be
ing no ionrer her host and the princess
being absolutely free from official obliga
tion of any kind. Commander Davis is at
the Hof!man house, where he will remain
until the princess sails for Europe on June

charge of smuggling opium. He is a green,
awkward chap, aad while denying that
nineteen two-pound opium packages be
