Lowenbach Bros., FRIDAY EVENIXO, DEC. 9 moim:k\ CHIKA. It seems safe to announce tbat the ancient absolute regimc in China will exist only historically after tbe Chinese New Year in January, 1911. It ia said that the thr.ne baa decided to accede to the resolution of the Imperial Sen? ate praying for the immediate creation of a constitutional cabinet. Political evenU in China hare rnoved with a rapidity that appears almost revolutionary, when it is considered that the provincial assemblies repre? senting tho first step toward popular government in the empfre's bistory of thouiands of years, were inaugurated so iocently aa October 14, 1909. The Imperial 8enate determined to relieve Prince Chun, the regent, of ab 8oluto power and make the country a eonstitutional empire forthwith. I The reported compliance of the hrone is regarded as a compromise. Tho Senate will not press for an imme? diate parliament, but propose to cou duct the government on a single cham? ber basis until 1913. It is understood that ths venerable Prince Ching, of Boier memory, the present power behind the throne, will retire and that Duke Tsai-Tae will be? come prime miniater. MAY BUI_I> BOTH 8HIPS. Tho Newport News Sbipbuilding and Drydock Company bas come to thfl rescue of Secretary Meyer, wbo has bcen wondering how he is going toget sufficient money to build the battleahip New York at tbfl New York yard. The Virginia company proposes to build tbe ship at the same price it bas asked for building the Texas, and may even reduce that some. Four bids were submitted by this company for the Texas contract, ranging from $5,760,000 to $5,800,000. As there were no other bidders, the presumption is that the Newport News company will get tbe contract. Secretary Meyer bas informcd the House naval appropriationa com mittees that revised estimates show it will be impossible to build the New York at tho government yatd for less than $7,500,000, whereas onlv $6,000,000 was appiopriated for each of the two 27,000-ton ships. Since the Congressional committecs appear to be dubious about urgent deliciency appropriations, tbe New? port News company has risen at a critical moment and promises to save the day. Secretary Meyer cannot award the New York contract to aDy privato company without authority of Con? gress, and this proposition will be laid before tbe two committees at once. Despite efforts of members of the New York City Savings Ban' Assoeia? tion to bring about, a reducCon of the rato of interest to depositors, the Sea men'a Bank for Savings arul the Emi grant Industrial Savings Bank late yes terday again tixed the rate at 4 pt r cent. Tbe Seamen's Bank has 97,000 depofli' tors and about $68,000,000 in deposits, while the Emigrant has 125,000 depos? itors and more than $100,000,000 in deposits._ To All Parties Concerned.
