MORE CHANGES ARE EXPECTED. Conservative Opinion Is That 2vew Appointments Do 2ot Strength en Ministry Chamberlain's Promotion Popular. London. -Aug; 9. The new Cabinet list, which involves the resignations of Sir -. ' Gorst, vice president of the Board of Edu cation; Lord Raglan. Parliamentary Secre tary to the War Office, and Jesse Collings, Parliamentary Secretary to the Home Of fice, tends to show that Premier Balfour Is experiencing considerable difficulty, and probably obstruction as well, in the re arrangement cf the ministry, -which evi dently h still incomplete There are still many anticipated resigna tions and promotions. With these are con nected the names or the Earl of Halsbury. Lord George Hamilton. Secretary of Stale for India, Viscount Crabcrne. under secre tary to the Foreign Office: Gerald Balfour, president cf the Board of Trade, and other who have not yet been announced. Cbanci-i Awaken Ao Eathoilum. The changes the Premier has succeeded in effecting excite no cnthus.asm. even in bis own party The Dally News dubs it "Bal i four's Kaleidoscope" and the conservative newspapers are fain to confess that the Cabinet changes are rather a reshuffling than a strengthening of the ministry. No striking ability has been introduced Into the Government among the new names. The admission of George "Wyndham, Chief Secretary for Ireland, to the Cabinet ana the appointment of Austen Chamberlain as Postmaster General are generally wel comed, but great disappointment is ex pressed on aH sides that the Marquis ot Londonderry, who is thought to have proved a failure as Postmaster General, should be placed in the new and Important post of President of the Board of Education. The disappearance of St J. Gorst is rather regretted and is thought probably to be dne to his always outspoken criticism of tho Government. Soma among the new men are csnsidcred to be promising, but on the whole the changes are thought to be safe, rather than brilliant. Perhaps the most remarkable ap pointment is that of Andrew Bonar Law as Parliamentary Secretary to the Board or Trade. Iron Merchant Ong of the -Appointees. Mr. Law is an iron merchant of Glasgow and was bom in 1ES. .He is a -son of the Reverend James Law of New Brunswick. He has only sat in Parliament lor two years, and has only spoken about twice since "he was elected;- but upon the?, oc casions he revealed great intellectual power. T0 in a. man of rood business -capacity, 3ut, being only a business man and with out powerful connections, his choice for the office allotted hint oy the Tory "Premier is considered unusual, if not surprising. It is fully expected that further changes -In the Cabinet will be made during the au tumn session of Parliament. In response to a question put by John G. Butcher, Conservative member of the'House xf Commons, regarding the advisability of ( appointing a member of the royal family to ' "be Viceroy of Ireland, with a permanent residence there. Premier Balfour said that 1 such a step might possibly be advisable, but ' that It would entail prolonged controversies end a new act of Parliament, and it. there fore, cannot be carried out at present.

Mrs. Frederick Neil son, at the Casino, was one of the most elaborate of the summer. The part, composed of fifty-two persons, was one of the largest eer gathered for dinner in Newport. Moreover, the mtnu was very elaborate and the general appoint ments were superb. The guests were seated at a horeshoe shaped table, spread in the inclosed piazza, connected with the Casino grillroom. The apartment had been transformed for the oc casion into a most attractive dining-haii, ornamented with hangings of deep red and brilLant with electric light eEt?cts, and roses arranged by Wadley & Smythe. Tne draperies were hung upon the walls in pan els, between which v-ere fes'ooned ropes of laurel and white roses. In the corners were groups of small or ange trees, in full fruit, and elsewhere were grouped palms and foliage plants. Numerous tiny electric lights were suspend ed from the ceiling In such a was as to pro duce & RTfirlifrhr ff.r fin tha if.vin n.fro large bunches of long stemmed American ' beauty roses, in vases of old silver, and about the cloth were garlanfis of American beauties, entwined with maidenhair fern, from which extended sprays of fragrant gardenia. The ladies vrere provided with Soiiquets and the men with boutonnlers of gardenia. After dinner there was formal dancing in the theater. Spells Xrae "Cathleen" Itovr. Miss Neilson has elected to spell her first name Cathleen. instead of Kathleen, a3 heretofore. The formal announcement ot her engagement marked the change In the spelling, and Newport society is interestedd In knowing Just -why the "KT was dropped. It may be that young Mr. Vanderbilt is responsible for the relegation of the "K." But the change has been made, and, de- i sp ic u protests ot ner more old-fashioned friends, all the engagement trinkets are be ing engraved with the "C" Indeed, this one letter has made more comment than the engagement, as it was foTco r1enacn'StahnVh,e ? j te oV .Slot TgreTt dil st-known of the old New Tork -ip mer long ago reached an understanding ; !p.hnrtf,r -a decision She has been ' Plants, and was related to nearly rll the The announcement of a Vanderbilt en- gagement is not only a very important so- cial event, but it is one which interests even body. Mr. Vanderbilt has Just com pleted his majority and was a student this year at Tale. Miss Neilson made her debut at Newport summer before last. She is still a very young girl, and has barely reached her twentieth year. The courtship of these young people has lasted about a year. So ciety took the greatest interest in it. Last winter Mr. Vanderbilt it-a. n rtnllt- -c-lcltn ,t t the Neilson residence, on Fifth avenue, be k r-ti. m -CM.7C ' " .. V" I low Twenty-third street. Opposition to Encasement. The engagement has been as frequently rumored and as frequently denied. In fact, there has been some opposition, not on the part of Mrs. Vanderbilt, the mother of Reg inald Vanderbilt alone, nor again on that of Mrs. Neilson, but a concerted action by both mothers, for the simple and only rea son that they thought their children too young to wed. The stories that Mrs. Vanderbilt objected to Miss Neilson on account of ner religion she being a Roman Catholic are denied by friends of both families. Mrs. Vanderbilt has always besn opposed to her son's mar rying very early in lite. She was a bit re luctant to sanction the early wedding of Alfred to Miss French. She wanted him to travel around the world and to become set tled. But when she tound that &he could not successfully oppose the young people she gave a most gracious consent. Tbe Vanderbllts have a predilection for marrying early in life. The sons of TVm. H. Vanderbilt were all benedicts with the one exception of George before they had com pleted their thirtieth jeer.

ANOTHER CUSTOMS SCANDAL REPORTED Evidence of Conspiracy Has Been Laid Before Secretary of the Treasurv. SYSTEM OF UNDERVALUATION. Believed That the Fraud Has Been Practiced for Twenty Years Estimated Loss More Than a Million. REPUBLIC ErECIAL. New Tork. Aug. 9. Evidence has "been laid before Secretary of the Treasury Shaw which points to the existence of a scandal in the Imports of china and pottery, in volving losses to the Government exceed ing even the amounts lost through the frauds in Japanese silks. It is tsserted by experts, who are not themselves interested in the matter, that a system of undervaluation ha" been prac tised for the last twenty 3 ears which has caud a loss to the Treasury of from SL OWS (W to $1,50000 a year While it has been known for several years that rhis loss was going on. persis tent efforts to correct it were nullfled by the inertness or hostility of Government of ficials. Astonishment was expressed to-day that the determined attitude of the S"cretary of the Treasury and the new officials ap pointed by him had not served as a warn ing to dishonest importers. It was said that frauds have been de tected In still another line of imports and that when an investigation that Is now in progress is finished disclosures of a start ling nature will be made. Not only has Secretary Shaw been asked to put an end to the alleged undervaluations of pottery, but the facts bav e been submit ted to President Roosevelt, who is said to be taking a personal interest In -the case. The complaint was made by men Interested in the pottery industry of the United States, the headquarters of which are In Trentcn. N. J. They declare that the wages paid abroad are less than one-third of those paid in Ihis country, and that if the duty provided by law is not collected here they will ba placed at the mercy cf the foreign pro ducers.

I have abso'utely nothing to say in relation to the matter." it is asserted by men -who are in a posi tion to know whet has been gome on in the -appraisal tit tU,ry that tbe underI valuations have averaged nbout one-third for many years. The Trenton pottery mak ers say tbe period covered by the alleged frauds is not less than twenty years. MARRIAGE WILL NOT SEPARATE OLD COMRADES.
