ENGLAND TALKS OF
Measure Primarily Suggested as
Means to Defeat Plans of
JEALOUSY OF AMERICA GROWS.
Lines Outside of the Merger Ap
parently Drawing Into Closer
Relations Balfour's Policy
Xot Yet Perfected.
London, Aug. CO. The approaching expira
tion of the time limit for the completion of
the Atlantic shipping combine Is arousing
the British press to all sorts of speculation
regarding J. Pierpont Morgan's ultimate
plans, as well as the Government's scheme
for dealing with the combination.
The promised statement of the Premier,
A. J. Balfour, on the reassembling of Par
liament, Is awaited with Intense Interest.
The statement has already been printed
that the Government plans are complete,
and that the authorities are all ready to
make the effective coUntermoye against
the American syndicate.
Inquiries made by the Associate Press in
the bert-informed quarters indicate that
this announcement is not true.
The Government haa had to deal with so
many powerful and conflicting interests
that it has not yet been able to definitely
decide on a plan of action.
Subsidy Scheme Is Advocated.
In spite of the opposition to a general
subsidy scheme, well-informed persons con
alder this to be the most likely solution, on
the lines of a generous distribution of Gov
ernment support, not In behalf of one, but
of several companies.
The form which such assistance will take
Is still under discussion, .there being con
siderable opposition to straight subsidies.
There is no doubt that Mr. Balfour's an
nouncement will Include a scheme for a
direct, fast Canadian service In which the
Canadian .Pacific Railroad probably will
participate, but" not. as originally planned,
as sole promoter and beneficiary.
The Indications point more and more to
the drawing together of the AUantlo lines
outside of the Morgan combine. One of the
alliances which may be earliest expected Is
a combination of the Allan line and Elder,
Dempster & Co.
The heads of the English lines are chary
In expressing themselves on the Atlantic
combine. Time is rather Intensifying than
allaying their jealousy of the American's
bid for the Atlantic trade, and the Govern
ment has been so thoroughly Etlrred up
that It will not leave a stone unturned to
allay the existing commercial and colonial
Trnifio Flgrnrea In DHetmsIon.
In this connection It may be mentioned
that the tariff discussion's at the recent co
lonial conferences were very intimately con
nected with the shipping situation. A lead
ing ship owner and a close friend of the
Colonial Secretary, Joseph, Chamberlain,
"America must not think that the Im
perial Government is going to leave the
colonies at the mercy of the shipping or
any other trust. The discontent is acute
enough now in many quarters of the Em
pire. "While Great Britain does not want a
commercial war with tho United States, she
will -not stand Indefinitely shut out by tho
American tariff wall while keeping open
house for American traders in the United
"The question of retaliatory duUes Is not
so Improbable as many people imagine.
There Is no reason why the British colonial
markets should not be opened to British
goods on a preferenUal basis. We have
been asleep hero in England for a long
time, but when we wake up America had
better look out."
Mr. Christopher Furness, who has been
referred to as the possible head of the Eng
lish financial syndicate, which is likely to
purchase the Cunard fleet as the nucleus
for a British shipping combine, hinted at
similar possibilities yesterday in his speech
before the steamship meeting at Manches
ter, but as he was addressing a public meet
ing, he was not so outspoken as the leading
ship owner Just quoted.

Rome. Aug. 30. The reports relative to
tho creation of another American Cardinal
are unfounded, or at least premature.
For fifteen years efforts have been made
to secure another American member of tho
Sacred College. General Dl Cesnola came
to Rome to advocate that Archbishop Ire

be promoted, to avoid their rivalry, but
New York's geographical position was re

Baltimore to permit of Archbishop Corri
With the passing away of Archbishop
Corrigan the situation wa3 much altered,
and it is considered that a satisfactory so

bring recompense to Archbishop Ireland for
his services in the affair.
At the Vatican It Is said that newspaper
talk will only delay Archbishop Ireland's
chances, as tho Pope Is always irritated at
the idea of anything being imposed upon
him by the press.

of seeing a boar; suddenly we caught sight

he came out of the bmBh about fifty' yards

and I were standing.
" 'There is the boar!' I exclaimed. "No,
It's a deer," said Senator Proctor.
"I fired about that time. The boar ran
at first, and I thought I had missed hlra.
After going a few rods, though, he began
to waver, and I knew it was all over with
him. Then he dropped. Wo ran up nnd
found that the ball had gone through his
heart and lungs.
"It was only after I shot that you saw
the boar, was it not. Senanrr' tho Presi

"We thought you were looking at a deer
we saw up on higher ground,"" replied the
Senator. "At the moment you shot it I
caught sight of the boar."
"They tell me," continued the President, '
"that the boars are very shy in the park
and seldom come out In the daytime. ThU
fellow probably just started out en his
nightly foraging expedition.
"Of course, I am greatly pleased over the
