Admirers of the late Count Tols

militarist In Its tendencies

for generations In the Volga peas

bythe
the count under the name of The
Empty Drum The councils edu
cation committee Included the book
In Its library list and then at tho
last moment some one discovered
the frankly antimilitary character
of The Empty Drum whereupon
the entire collection of ales was
stricken from the list
Under the direction of Aylmer

In Spain
Madrid via Hendaye Dec 17
Premier Canalejas baa told the lead
ers of all the radical parties In Spain
that he Intends to take vigorous lLe
tloh against the church fid soon aa
the budget is out of the way which
will be about ttie middle of Jan
uary
The premier hag managed to stall
off trouble longer than any one had
Imagined was possible The clerleftls
have been ready to put up a flgnt
the moment they were attacked but
they Hare no disposition to force a
conflict in which they have nothing
to gain and may ose everything it
they are beaten But the radicals
have been growing extremely impa
tient at the long delay
It Is reported that tho information
was finally conveyed to Senor QuI
alejas that there wouldl I be no fur
ther walthlng that the anUclericala >
would take the offensive at once un
less bo showed some disposition to
fulfill his promises To this it Is
understood that the premier replied
that he anticipated a desperate strug
gle as soon as ho actually moved
against the clerlcaia and did not
want to go Into it until all his prep
arations wero completed The radi
cals accepted this explanation but In
sisted that some sort of time limit
be fixed There may be Inaccuracies
In the details of tho story which it
la possible to get only at second
hand but that tho premier promised
to open hostilities Immediately after
the budgets passage Is a certainty
It Is known too that Senor Canal
ejas explained to his interrogators
the necessity for an almost complete
reorganization of his cabinet upon
tho loyalty of whose present mem
bers he cannot rely in a fight against
the church He will himself retain
tho premiership but with the excep

Prieto there will be a change In ev
