CHURCHILL TO COME BACK ' \nd Sir Edward Carson is Expected to be in New I Government. LONDON. Dec 7.?It having been decided definitely that David-Lloyd I Oeorgc will undertake the formation Iof a ministry political circles today were interested chiefly In the personnel of tho new cabinet and the prospect of the new premier for getting together a combination that will have the support of a majority in the House of Commons. Few if any of the Liberal members of Mr. Asquith's cabinet arc likely to accept office under l.loyd-George and some of the Cnionist members like J Austin Chamberlain and Lord Robert Cecil are likely to stand aside. How. ever it is assumed tliat at a conference rit Jiucklngham palace they asMired the new premier of their benevolent neutrality thus making bis task much simpler. Am fur as the cabinet is concerned L ilie new nremier has a nucleus in A. I Donar Law, Lord Durby, Lord Curzon, Sir Frederick I- Smith and Sir Edward Carson, while Ciscount Reading, the Lord Chief Justice, is likely to join the ministry. Ollu r Liberal members may be drawn from men sin,., as Sir Frederick Cawley, member of the House of Commons from the Perst\ wlch division of Lancashire and Sir George Pollard, member from the Ecclos division of Lancashire, who al though the public have heard little 01 them have done efficient work in committees. Dr. Cristopher Addison, parliamen! tary under secretary for munitions, is Vialmost certain to have a place in the cabinet and Col. Winston Spenser Churchill, former First Lord of the Admiralty, is slated for high office. Under the circumstances It is believed the construction of a cabinet will be put a matter of a day or so and that bv Monday the new government will meet. The new government will meet the House of Commons to lcHrn what manner of reception will be accorded ... A test of its strength can be mado on vote of credit which must bo moved immediately. Today's session of the House of Commons was expected to lie a formal one. it being doubtful whether any of the ministers would put in an appearRncp. The House of Commons adjourned till Tuesday. A meeting of the Liberal party over which Mr. Asquith will preside' will lie held Friday.

It is assumed in most entente quarters, however, that there j i was no "last stand" by the Rumanians I j before their capital ami such news as | had trickled through from German sources indicates that Hueliareat was! virtually deserted when the Teutonic forces entered. The city is said to have been found uninjured. Military commentators in the en-' tente capitals point to the probabilityi that the action just prior to the cap-' j tare of Bucharest were fought merely! I with a view to delaying the advance I of held marshal Von Mackensens forc-l es and aiding in the escape of the! main body of the Rumanians. The j capture of I'loeehti. the railway jtine-i tion its miles north of Bucharest how-! ever, may have blocked the retreat i of a part of the Rumanian forces. German opinion is expressed to the effect that the Rumanians have decided to abandon all of Wallaehia, the main portion of Ire Rumanian kingdom and retire to Moldavie their nortli eastern province where their fronts would he materially shortened and where they would he in cfciso j touch with the Russians. Emperor William has sent following telegrams to Field Marshal von Mackonsen in command of Teutonic forces on southern Rumanian front: "It Is your Excellency's birthday today and the ever memorial capture of Bucharest the eapital of tiie treacherous enemy who was the last io appear in arms against us. gives me the occasion my | dear Field Marshall, to express my im j perlal thanks and fullest recognition i to you and to the glorious troops of i the Danube anil the armies under your ' leadership who by the greatest exer! tion have achieved extraordinary ex! ploits.

OIL FIELDS TOO GO WITH BUCHAREST Paris Newspapers Refer in Gloomy Terms to Rumanian Reverse. (By Associated Press! PARIS. Dec. 7?News of the fall of Bucharest was received here with sorrow and mortification although it had been regarded as Inevitable since the j battle of the Argechu was lost. "We understand perfectly" stays thci Petit Journal "what the Rumanians1 are suffering, for we too have suffer-, ed the sorrows of invasion. We associate ourselves sll Hie more with their grief since we realize with bitterness of spirit that we are partly responsible for lite ratastroplie which was not tine entirely to the military ability of the enemy's lenders." All newspapers say that events must j ho a lesson to I he allies which ought to spur them on to more rapid and energetic action and nhovo all to the organized and effective use of their common resources. The commentators while generally gloomy make the point that the Rumanians having abandoned Bucharest have now a much shorter linp from which their armies having emerged Intact from the claws of Germans enveloping movement have a good rhance of holding until allies como to relief. But It is agreed that with the fall of Plooehti there appears no probability of saving the oil fields which is considered the worst feature of the situation. ???. ?.

Former Senator Root in a paper reail here to-! ! day at the opening session of the Anti-, Suffrage convention outlined his rea- j son for opposition to the proposed con-1 stitutional amendment to enfranchise j women. "I atn against having the Constltu j tion of the United States ameuded so ! ! as to impose woman's suffrage on the states which do not wish for it, not (merely, hut chiefly because my judgment does not approve of* woman's suffrage but for a much more vital reason." said Mr. Root's paper. "It is a j destruction of the right of self govern- j ment anil a subjection of the people ; of New York to the government of others. "Having failed to secure the assent i to woman's suffrage of such states as South Dakota and West Virginia aud New York and Pennsylvania and Ohio, tlie advocates of woman's suffrage now seek to compel such states to accept it against their will and to compel litem to carry on their local government and select their representatives in national government In conformity to the opinion of the people of other states who are in favor of woman's suffrage.

What action the State department will take is problematical.
