FRANCE AND GERMANY MAY FORM COALITION Movement Started to Bring Two Euro. pean Countries into Closest of Relations BERLIN, Jan. 13.—The Post, which frequently receives official informa tion, .states that in all probability the emperor and the French president, M. Fallleres, will meet next spring. It is .stated that the occasion will be the inauguration of the Oceanographic museum at Monaco, a ceremony which would in this way develop into a polit ical event of high importance. Such a meeting between the kaiser and the president of the French repub lic would be one of the most interest ing events of international politics of the last decade, and would be the cul mination of the movement in favor of the establishment of closer and more friendly relations between these two i neighboring countries which has been going on steadily but without osten tation for nearly three years. After the bitter feeling excited by the Morocco dispute many Influential men in Germany realized that a more conciliatory policy was needed than that which led to M. Delcasse's down fall in 1905. Influential meeting's have been held for this purpose in Berlin, an asso ciation ha<? been formed here for a Franco-German entente, lectures have been delivered by Baron d'Estournel'es <le Constans in Berlin, and exchange visits by German p.nd Fren"h students have been arranged. Finally a French newspaper, the Journal d'Allemagne, has been founded in Berlin to promote Franco-German friendship. ROME IS PREPARING FOR BIG EXPOSITION IN 1911 Task Simplified by Fact That Turin Also Will Hold Exhibit in Honor of United Italy ROME, Jan. 13.—The program of the Kreut exhibition to be held in Rome Jn 11)11 is attractive as well as orig inal and reflect! credit on th<> execu tive eommfttee ami their Indefatigable president, fount di San Martino. The fiftieth anniversary of the proclama tion of Rome as the capital of the new united Italy is an occasion which might well call for more than or dinary i (forts for its celebration, and the city seems to have fully respond ed to the call. The task was simplified to some ex -Imt by the fact, that Turin will un dertake in the same year an exhibi tion exemplifying the great econ lo progress made in Italy, her advance in science and machinery and her ag ricultural and industrial products. The exhiibtion of Rome, was, therefore, free to devote Itself to the more gen erally interesting display of her achievements in the line arts and of the discoveries of archaeology.

A resolution favored the ex tension of the belt line on the water front. A committee of nine was named on reorganization. If, by the time the committee's report is ready, the rail roads have not receded in their stand on freight rates, another meeting of the league will be called with the ob ject of devising some means of pro ce-.iling to a successful end in the fight.

INFLUENZA IN NEW FORM IS EPIDEMIC IN LONDON Malady Attacks Eustachian Tube and Produces Serious and Distressing Deafness LONDON, Jan. 18,—Influenza is again epidemic here, probably owing to the freaky weather. "Thin .season it lias attacked tin eustachlan tube," cays a prominent West Knrt physician, "and has produced a serious and flls tresaing deafness. The tube becomes blocked and a gathering makes its ap pearance at the drum. The treatment consists in the use of a douche to clear the passage and a general ton ing up of the whole system. "But the old-time Influenza is with us, too. It is attacking the bones and weakening the constitution. Here it growl very serious. The pneumococci —the germs of pneumonia—attack the weakened* system and the heart, pow crl.-ss to survive the trouble, may cease to beat. "I am not an alarmist, but every care should be taken to ward off an attack. I have patients who have been ill for many years owing solely to complications which follow influ enza." The following are some suggestions for sufferers: Keep out of draughts. Feed regularly and well. , Avoid excitement and Intoxicants. Never fail to consult a doctor at the early stages of the disease.

CLARK ATTACKS HOUSE DESPOT MINORITY LEADER SCATHES SPEAKER CANNON Missouri Solon Bitterly Denounces Tactics and Policy of Autocrat and Predicts Early Fall of Tyrant [Associated Press] PAYTON, 0., Jan. 13.—1n a speech here tonight, Champ Clark, leader of the minority in the house of repre sentatives, attacked Speaker Cannon and what is known as "Cannonism." , Mr. Clark declared that "the tide is everywhere rising against 'Cannonism,' and that the fight against house rules would continue until crowned with, success." Mr. Clark said the statement of Mr. Cannon that the fight against the house rules was simply an effort to pre vent any tariff legislation was untrue. Mr. Clark referred to Speaker Can non's Kansas City speech, which he said "was devoted ehietiy to a discus sion of the fight to amend the hous» rules, and to motives, ambitions, men tal equipment and political status of some of us who have dared to lift our eye« above his shoestrings, look him squarely in the face and battle in the open for the rehabilitation of the house of representatives. "It would be interesting to know how that speech happened to be written and read to the audience and it would be edifying to know who furnished him with certain alleged facts on which he based some of his remark*." Criticises Hale The speaker criticised the action of Senator Hale in haying the speech printed as a public document and at public expense, saying: "Evidently the intention is to circulate it ad libitum as a piece of campaign literature to help elect another standpat house of representatives Which w ill in turn elect Mr. Cannon to the sptakership, for, as MacAuley said of Sir Robert Walpole, he is 'avaricious of power' and clings to it with the tenacity of a snapping turtle and with the desperation of a drowning man clutching a plank in mldocean, "The speaker professes to love and admire a courageous man. It's a strange commentary on his loud pro fessions in that regard that ho bitterly assails all those who have courage to oppose his system and 'deals damna tion round the land' on all who are not willing to bow the knee and kowtow to him. He strikes a Louisi XIV '1 am the state;' attitude and savagely be labors all those who would liberalize the rules of the house. "Against Hon. Joseph (r. Cannon per sonally I have nothing whatsoever; ho has done me many kindnesses, which 1 have tried to repay, but I am hon estly opposed to what has become known to be 'Cannonism' in our legis lation, and it should be rooted out, and the tide is everywhere rising against 'Cannon ism.' Has Traveled Much "Since the adjournment of congress I have been over most of lowa, Ne braska. Missouri, Kansas. Oklahoma, Colorado and into South Dakota, and everywhere in that region 'Cannonism' in tiic resounding theme of every tongue, and against it that portion of the country is ailame. "One of the speaker's favorite Charge! is that I, while denouncing him as a czar, am ambitious to be a exar myself, which is too ridiculous to talk about. "I?y revising the rules I lose half the power I had as minority leader and shear myself of at .least half my pow er should I become speaker; but I be lieved then and believe now that I was right and working for the public good." .. In conclusion Mr. Clark said: "Cer tainly the Republicans cannot be de scribed as a happy family. The Pur son-Cannon row, the Ballinger-Pinchot row, the Crane- row, theinsur gent-standpat row, the constantly in creasing talk of 'the return from Elba, 1 the central bank row, all of these are merely symptoms, but most suggestive symptoms, of the disease now afflict ing the a. o. p. So, while Democrats everywhere celebrate the glad • new year by getting together for an assault all along the line upon the common enemy, Republicans present to the as tonished gaze of men the appearance of a dissolving. view." ■■/,..

BABY STARTS ROMANCE THAT CULMINATES IN INTERNATIONAL UNION Pretty Philadelphia Heiress and En. glish Barrister Thrown Together Through Charms of Lat. ter's Niece NEW YORK, Jan. 13.—Baby smiles are the background of the romance revealed in the cabled announcement from London recently of the marriage there of Miss Helen Louise Steck, heir ess, of New York and Philadelphia and Walter Phelps Dodge, London bar rister, an author and an authority on international law. He is 41 years old. Three months ago, while on a visit to this city in the interest of clients, Mr. Dodge met the beautiful, talented daughter of Edward Milton Stock, a Philadelphia millionaire. She is 17 years did, a fine musician, and shone as one of the younger set in the Phila delphia assemblies. It was while stopping hero at the New York residence of her mother, 142 West Forty-fourth street, that Miss Helen met Mr. Dodge at a dinner given by his cousin, Guy Dodge. Rosemary, the 4-year-old daughter Of Mr. Dodge, and Miss Helen became inseparable companions. In this way Miss Steck was thrown in almost daily associa tion with Rosemary's father. It was not lons before the tiny fin gers began to weave the net of love about Miss Steck and Mr. Dodge. There were dinners, house parties and boxes at the theater, and little Rose mary was there, aiding Cupid in his work. Before lie left New York tor his home in England Mr. Dodge pleaded with Miss Steck to becdffiS his wife and accompany him abroad. She asked more time to consider. When the time came for Mr. Dodge to sail on the Hamburg-American liner Amerika Miss Steck was at the pier, and the last words she heard as the big ship pulled out Into the stream was little Rosemai'y's call: "Please come with us." The big liner had hardly passed the Hook before Cupid, on the wings of wireless, continued his work. Several times daily Miss Steck received wire less messages from Mr. Dodge. Mr. Dodge arrived in Bremen. That same afternoon there came this cablegram to the Steck home in Forty-fourth street: "Will you make my New Year happy?" Mrs. Steck took up the narrative of her daughter's romance. "It is truly a love match," said Mrs. Steck. "I expected to hear an an nouncement of a formal engagement, bur was surprised when a cablegram told me of the wedding. Helen loved Rosemary, and through her learned to love Mr. Dodge. My daughter sailed for Europe directly after she had received a cablegram from the other side. She sailed on a few hours' no lice. Mr. Steck, who is traveling, cabled bli blessing." Walter Phelps Dodge has been mar ried twice before. His first wife was Miss Ida Cook of London and his sec ond Miss Ethel Adior.i Coles of Stan ton Court, -. London, who died MOM years ago. . . 'X CHINA SYSTEMATIZES FRONTIER SETTLEMENT Russians Become Alarmed at Move ment of Government in Promot. ing Colonization Idea ST. PETERSBURG, Jan. 13.—An in teresting paper by Dr. A. Kokhanov sky on "Chinese Colonization Along the Russian Frontier" is published in the Proceedings of the Russian Impe rial Geographical—society. This paper is of especial value at the present mo ment when the complex situation in the far east is attracting- more and more attention in St. Petersburg and pessimistic views appear to be gaining ground. Dr. Kokhnnovsky says that while there has always existed in China a tendency to colonize the frontier re gions, the movement has during the last few years boon intensified and systematized to a remarkable degree. The government now actively promotes the movement. In 1902 a Colonization society was formed with the object of colonizing the region in Mongolia be tween Urga and Kodune; half the cap ital of the society is provided by the treasury. The governors in the fron tier regions, who are usually highly tfiucated and experienced rten, skilled in administration and diplomacy, now realize the importance of colonization, in view of the development of Rukso rhinese relations and the impending economic struggle between the two empires. They accordingly MaiKn large sums from the provincial fund for colonization purposes. The gov ernors are supported 1 y trading com panies and political dubs, which play an important part in Chinese public life. The great firms in Tientsin and Shanghai which do business with the frontier regions ate directly interested in the colonization movement, since the Mongols; Klrghiaoa and Salts who roam over these regions! display a pref erence for Russian goods or local products. The poorer classes of the Chinese population in the regions nearer the coast are only too glad to avail themselves of the encouragement given -by the authorities, and the movement northward and westward is now assuming an almost elemental character recalling, a.< Dr. Kokhanov «ky remarks, the movement of the Russian peasantry to the Black «ea steppes.

AERIAL CRAFT PROMISE TO FIGURE IN NEXT WAR Census Shows the Relative Strength of -the Various Great Powers LONDON, Jan. 13.—The next war promisos to be a duel of aeroplanes against dirigibles. A census of aerial craft shows that at the opening of 1910 Germany possesses fourteen dirigi bles and five aeroplanes, while Franco possesses seven dirigibles and twenty nine aeroplanes. France has twice the number of aerial craft that Germany pins its faith to; but the steering bal loons of Germany are twice those of France, while, on the other hand, France has six times as many aero planes as Germany. If the aeroplane is the better instru ment, France should gain the upper hand easily: while, if the dirigible is. as is commonly supposed in the present stage of experiment, the better light ing piachine, the victory should go to Germany. Germany stands alone, how ever, in its preference for the steer able balloon. England at the opening of 1910 pos sesses two of each; Austria, two dirigi bles and four aeroplanes; Russia, three dirigibles and six aeroplanes; Spain, one dirigible and three aeroplanes; and Italy, three dirigibles and seven aero planes. The provision for the construc tion of aerial craft by the great powers is interesting. The German budget sets aside $1,900,000 for dirigibles; tlv> French $225,000, also for dirigibles; and Austria proposes to spend $27,500, also on steerable balloons, while, England is arranging to launch the largest craft of the kind that has yet been built.
