LONDON, Nov. 30.—Notwithstand
ing the repeated assertions from the
liberal side that Sir Henry Campbell-
Bannerman would not take office at
the present Juncture, It Is now gener
ally believed that the result of the
cabinet council' to bo held today will
be the heralding of a liberal govern
ment with Sir Henry as premier. The
official announcement of the result of
the, council Is likely to be delayed
for a few days, but the Associated
Press understands that Mr. Balfour
will intimate to his colleagues his de
sire to leave office and will invite their
A few days' will be required for, the
formalities of laying thematter before
King Edward, who will arrive at Buck
ingham palace next Monday, to hold
a privy council on the following morn
ing.. Probably the resignation of tho
government will be | announced on
Wednesday and then King Edward
will Invite Sir Henry Campbell-Ban
nerman to form a ministry. Sir Henry's
acceptance of the task Is regarded as
a foregone conclusion, In which case
the election will take place in January.
The liberal Daily News, In an edi
torial on the situation, puts the case
bluntly In favor of Sir Henry. Camp
bell-Bannerman taking office. It says:
; '.'Suppose that in the event of Sir
Henry Campbell-Bannerman's refusal
Premier Balfour should advise King
Edward to send for Joseph Chamber
lain? This. Is doubtless a somewhat
-wild suggestion, but it cannot be
doubted ■ that Mr. Chamberlain would
seize the opportunity to form a pro
tectionist government."

Ingersoll Lockwood Who Was the
Woman's Lawyer Produces Three
Documents Purporting to Convey
Portions of Her Property
By Associated Press.
NEW YORK, Nov. 30.— There was a
revival of activity yesterday both in
the criminal Investigation and the civil
proceedings at law consequent upon
the death of Mrs. Margaretta Todd, the
wealthy New York woman found man
gled on the Reading tracks In Phila
delphia on October 27. Theron Davis,
one of the atorneys for Mrs. Rosalie
Tousey, Mrs. Todd's daughter, spent
the day In Philadelphia following
strong clues which are expected to re
veal who the persons were who were
with Mrs. Todd on the night of her
death, Including a man who met her
at the railroad station In that city.
Mr. Davis returned from Philadelphia
last night.
"I made satisfactory progress," he
said, "but do not feel Justified as yet
In divulging the facts or giving any
intimation of them. Such a course
would be too likely to defeat the ends
of Justice."
In this city Ingersoll Lockwood, for
many years the intimate friend and
legal adviser of the dead woman, pro
duced three documents purporting to
convey portions of her property. Two
of these were assignments of mort
gages, the existence of which was un
known to Mrs. Tousey or her attor
neys. They were dated in 1904 and
transferred a mortgage for $50,000 and
one for $40,000 from Mrs. Todd to Lock
wood himself.
A copy of , the third document was
served yesterday by - Mr. Lockwood
upon the Lincoln Trust company, tem
porary administrator of the estate. It
Is the deed of trust by which Mr. Loc<Tt
wood some time ago claimed posses
sion of Mrs. Todd's personal -estate,
amounting by his own ■ admission to
more than $100,000.
The deed makes Mr. Lockwood trus
tee of the entire, personal estate, in
structs him to invest the funds, - and
from the income pay Jennie M. Paine,
at one time Mrs. -.Todd's maid, $1000,
keep $1000 annually for himself and
turn over the balance of the income
to Mrs. Tousey. ■
The trust terminates on Mr. Lock
wood's death.

Vice Chancellor Yon PasadowskU
: Wehner Declares That the Opening
of Frontiers Is a Matter for Indi

By Associated Press.
BERLIN, Nov. 30.— The Reichstag to
day discussed the Socialist'interpella
tion asking Chancellor yon Bue'low
what measures the imperial govern
ment'proponed to take against the
meat scarcity, Herr Schetdmann. So
rialist, quoted figures; showing the in
crease in the slaughtering of animals at
the public abbattolrs, and their lighter
weight compared with previous years.
The price of pork he said was 49 marks
per hundred weight . In Chicago, 79 In
Rotterdam, 125 In Berlin and 135 at
Stuttgart. He denied that the closure
of the frontiers was necessary to pro
tect. German livestock against . foreign
diseases, saying such diseases, were
rare In France, Holland and Denmark,
whereas 36,000 farms in Germany were
reported to be affected with red mur
rain In 1904 and 45,000 in 1905. *
Vice Chancellor Count yon Pasa
dowski-Wehner answered the Interpel
lation In behalf of the chancellor. He
said that the opening of the frontiers
was a matter for the individual state
government to decide, but the Saxon
and Bavarian governments had reject
ed such reciprocity. The relaxation of
veterinary control at the frontiers
would shake the- foundations of the do
mestic animal Industry and- promote
dependency upon foreign countries.
The surest guarantee for. reasonable
meat prices rested In the protection of
domestic livestock. ..:.•■
The minister of agriculture, General
yon Podbjelskl, maintained that the
high prices of meat represented a
transitory condition due to poor crops.
He admitted that if the present prlceH
became permanent it would be neces
sary to take steps to get cheaper meat,
and said that the animals brought to
market slaughtered in 1905 were 6 per
cent lighter than the animals slaughter
ed In 1904. President Count yon Ball
strom called Gen. yon Podbjelskl to or
der for saying that Scheldmann had
"made, himself the mouthpiece for all
the malicious nonsense printed about
me in the newspapers."

Officers Dissatisfied at Not Receiving
Usual Gifts

are indications that should there be
further trouble with, the powers It must
be difficult for the sultan to get strong
backing, even among that section of
the army stationed at Constantinople.
The. sultan during the Balram festival
Is in the habit of having the crews of
his, warships and the members of the
regiments stationed at the capital to'an
evening meal In the palace after the
days of fasting. ' • ' - ;, . .
This mc-al Is called "Iftar" arid dur
ing it the 'sultan distributes gifts upon
the various army and navy and other
officials. This year the sultan, how
ever, wished to cut down the amount
generally so given out to the navy to
J50.000. An admiral was charged with
the making of this cut, but he, was In
formed that he must do so' without
causing dissatisfaction. '* The admiral
accomplished his task by leaving out
a large number of officers who hitherto
had received ! gifts of money and by
reducing the amounts paid to other-!.
It should be remembered . that tho
majority of the officers here do not
receive more than six or eight months'
pay In a year. When the distribution
following the feast took place the of
ficers whose names were not on. the
admiral's list did not receive gifts,. and
many others received less than the
amounts usually allotted to them. On
the night of Nov. 23 3000 officers went
In a body to the palace, forced an
entrance and demanded the usual gifts.
The sultan was thoroughly alarmed
and immediately sent down a large
amount of money, with which the offi
cers were hurriedly paid. In the ensu
ing confvislon many officers were paid
two and three times the amount they
expected. The crowd then dispersed
In an orderly manner.

ST. PETERSBURG, Dee. 1, 8:20 a. m.
—The official dispatches' announcing
the decisive crushing of the great
mutiny at Sebastopol and the capture
,of all the mutineers, Including 'the
fanatical commander, Lieutenant
Schmidt, has raised 'a great load from
the hearts of Count Wltte and his as
sociates In the government.
At a protracted cabinet 'council yes
terday long and serious j consideration
was given to an .even graver problem,'
the general strike "of , the te^grapli
and postal employes, which has com
pletely paralyzed' 'the Interior ;coni
munlcatlon of the empire ' and '; which;
If continued, will mean nothing i- else
than . the economic and Industrial
death of Russia. ' ' ■' r ■■. !<..■■ ■ ,
Rumors were , flying thick • and , fast
late tonight that Count : Wltte ,ha J
decided to sacrifice M. ' Durnovo, I tha
acting minister of the Interior, whose
action in discharging the leaders of the
employes brought on the strike. It Is
believed, however, that M. -.Durnovo
will be given a final ' opportunity to
rectify. his error. ■■■■ • .-.■.-'-■- -aUto*<iKmmtim
According to telephonic '• information
from Moscow the - telegraphers * there
approached Baron Midem^ the prefect;
who promised to present a petition for,
the re-employment of ■ those who had
been discharged . if work was Immedi

extremely tense.' yesterday. In ' tha
absence of definite Information ..from
Sebastopol • the wildest rumors. were
in' clrculatloh ' in * the city/ „ : •■: •■ ■ : : ' ' ' . ". ;"
TJie revolutionists eagerly seized the
opportunity to spread reports that the
mutineers' had .been completely, vic
torious. .They worked especially among
the troops, button-holing every soldier
and sailor whom they encountered 'in
the streets. .
A panic spread .. on the ' bourse, and;
government bonds dropped heavily. '■■ •-■;•■!
The government finally recognized
that It was a tactical ■ mistake , to : hold
up the news, but the official announce
ment of victory at. Sebaßtopol came too
late to undo a great deal of harm.. ... V
The dispatches show; that the resist
ance of the mutineers, when they were
convinced that the "government meant
business and: could count on the active
support of. the troops in the forts,: was
faint-hearted. As . the Otchakoff. fired
only half a dozen shots before hauling*
down its flag the damage to the < city
of Sebastopol may.; bo felt less . than
had been. expected." ■ , . .
• Lieut. Schmidt and other leaders of
the mutineers probably expect a short
trial, and It Is certain ;that ; the,gov
ernment will show them no leniency. ,-

manded one of. the torpedo boats built
for Russia by Lewis Nixon. .He is well
known to Mr. Nixon, who says he: Is
