LONDON , Jan. I8. ! The altitude of Drltlsh
( investors toward American business under
went a considerable1 change during the last

ways alow to irracp changes and people here
nrc mil ) beginning to realize what financiers
and politicians have for months considered
the most Important fact of the year the
tremendous commercial advancement of the
United States.
Uvcr since the Venezuelan affair the only
IJeu of holders of American securities lian
been lo tell whenever they could do so with
nnv profit or without too great a loss. In
the beginning of the present upward rush
of American stocks both speculators and
holders of transatlantic securities were eager
to taKe advantage of the opportunity to un
load the formci , selling for cash , expecting
n diop in the market , getting rid of what
they regarded us unsafe property which they
liad been long holding.
lloth Ilrltlsh and American financiers , who
talked with n representative of the Associa
ted 1'iess on the subject , agree that the
pendulum has now begun to swing In the
Otlicr direction. Investors seeing that the
anticipated disasters do not materialize and
that tlio United States IB apparently In fern
n great period of prosperity , are coming to
the conclusion that they were ovcrhaity In
unloading ttiolr American holdings.

materially alter the spirit and letter of the

the United States with regard to the Philip

onturcj upon hy the United Statei with
Spain In the peace treaty It would not mat

"All this , however , Is surely hypothet

Informed cf the drift of events at Washing
ton. My Intention Is decidedly to convoke
the fortes In the middle of February
whether the treaty Is latllled or not then In

I have carefully noted what the Madrid
press said the lost fortnight and have
sounded men of all parties and classes with
out finding anybody supposing that the
peace treaty or the relations between Spain
und the United States can he affected If the
annexation of the Philippines Is abandoned
for independence on condition that all
dausps of the Paris treaty arc carried out.
Even the Carllsts and republican ! ) think so.
The editor of Epocn , chief organ of the
conservative pirty , says :
"Certainly most Spaniards would accept
the peace treaty all the same If the Philip
pines were put In a position Identical with
Cuba , though , in their opinion , Spain would
prefer to see America annex , because the
Spanish material Interests of all kinds still
extant In the Philippines would be better
protected by America than by the natives ,
whom the Spaniards believe Incapable ot
self-government "
The editor of HI Correo , chief organ of
the liberal party and ministry , Senator K ir-
roras , cannot sec what difference It would
make as regards Spanish ratification of the
peace treaty whether the Philippines were
treated like Cuba by the United States , ns
the present government ceded all rights to
Spain over the archipelago to the United
Scnor Abamiza , n leading member of the
recent peace commission , slid today :
"Spain , In my opinion , would not , nor would
any civil or free nation , accept the treaty It
modified so as to create an Independent
Filipino government. You might as well
ghe autonomy to the monkeys as give It to
the rillpluos. No country could posalblv
agree to risk He commercial Interests by
dealing with a so-called Filipino g-overn-
mcnt. Would America herself like her
commercial Interests to have only n single
guarantee of such a government ? It would
bo no guarantee at all. Accordingly , If the
treaty bo amended as suggested It ceases to
bo a treaty , signed by Spain , and a serlou *
position arises , as since tlio treaty becomes
null matters go back to the status quo at
the time of the protocol. "
BRUSSELS. Jan. 2S ( New York World

"In a modified form we members of the

called "In perpetuation ot testimony , " to
prove that the organ grinder's mother was
incelnte when he married her and had been
living as wife with a man named George
Tumour , almost up to the day of the mar-
rlago and had christened the son , afterward
born , William Tumour Thomas Poulett.
The earl nvorred he had never lived with
bar as man and wife.
These pleas are extremely difficult to
maintain to the satisfaction of the legal
mind. Ono great Issue In the Poulett suc
cession will bo that such pleas have been
upheld before. The last case was that of
the eon of the countess of Ajlesford , who
had eloped with the late duke of Marlbor-
ough. She styled thla son Lord Ouersey ,
that being the second title of her husband ,
the carl of Ayleeford , but on satisfactory
evidence the court declared the case turned
on the medical question whether a child
can be born and survive within six months
of marriage. On this the medical faculty
tolds diverse views , and , obviously. It Is
Impossible uf absolute proof , the presump
tion being ngalnst U , but her son , "a
stranger In blood , " Is deprived of his rights
of succession to the Ayleaford peerage.
Thla half brother of the duke of Marlborough -
ough Is now a cavalry olllcer.
IlnnKliigr on the Future.
The organ grinder , of course , expresses
absolute confidence that be will succaed , and
epeaks with patronizing pity of Earl
Poulett's younger son by his third wife.
This lad tears a remarkibly close re-
somblancn to Earl Poulett , while Hlnton ,
the organ grinder , does not suggest the re
motest likeness to him , either In com
plexion , features or figure. Speaking of the
matter , Hlnton speculated ( rccly on his fu
ture as earl. He said :
"I shall live probably at Fratton , near
Portsmouth , where I am well known , hav
ing performed there with my organ every
seabon for years. The family mansion prob
ably will bo too expensive for me to keep
up , and I shall let It. I shall do all I can
for the poor , asi I have known their suffer
ings , though I cannot say I ever felt the
pinch of hunger myself. I shall cultivate a
hobby for fretsaw work and keep a motor
car when I can get a tellable one. I shall
take part In the proceedings of the House
of Lords , where my experiences will enable
me to speak with knowledge on many social
subjects of which my follow peers know
nothing. "
Still the prospect of this sudden change
from poverty und toll to affluence does not
excite Hlnton. He shows no excitement ,
there la no sound of Joy In his voice , he
epeaks wearily and perfunctorily , not from
aristocratic boredom or Indifference , but be
cause he Is manifestly broken In spirit and
body. He has waited too long. There were
rumors today of a compromise. Hlnton ab
solutely , denies them , and It Is difficult to
9fo how u compromise could be arranged , ns
the committee on privileges of the House
of Lords will Invo to bo sitisfled and will
recognlzn no arrangement between the
Tomtom onloe to Mnrlliorough.
The duke of Marlborough , having been
sounded by Lord Salisbury , Is said to have
signified that he could not accept an Austra
Han governorship , soon to be vacant. His
principal reason Is that the duchess docs
not care to leave England , especially as the
Australian climate Is often very Injurious
to children. The eldest Marlborough babe ,
Loid Illandford , Is extremely pretty , with
golden hair and tbo freshest pink and white
coloring. The duchess has Just had a mlnla
ture of him painted. His head , on a back
ground of blue clouds , looks quite angelic.
Tbo duke and duchess are guests ot Rarl
and Countess Spencer for a great country
ball. The duchess Is greatly enjoying the
round of balls she has attended lately , thta
being the first winter since her marriage
when It was possible for her to go in for
these country house gaieties.
The Marlborougbs have finally determined
not to rent Sefton house , Belgrave square ,
and are looking in Ma ) fair for a town resi
dence. By the way , the earl of Sefton , who
has long been suffering from what was
thought to be permanent mental derflngc-
roent resulting from a cricket ball blow on
the head , Is making nn amazing recovery.
Ills illness seemed so hopeless that only a
short tlmu ago the trustees of the Sefton
estate made arrangements by which a
younger bro'Jhcr ' , Osbert Molly Neut , should
have sufficient Income to enable him to re
side at the family seat. Croxtcth , and keep
up the property. But now Lord Sefton will
once moro take his place.

manifestations In the election of two JauntIng -
Ing car drivers , locally called "Jarvleu. "
one for an alderman and the other for a
councillor. A local merchant drove to the
council chamber for the first meeting of the
corporation on an alderman car , paid the
alderman "Jarvey" six pence fare , was sa
luted with "thank you , sir. " and then both
walked together , the "Jarvey" taking his
se.it nmong the aldermen while the pros
perous merchant subsided Into the compara
tive obscurity of the councillor's bench.
There has been nothing like It for the
comic opera stage. Alderman Kelllhc-r Is a

Councillor O'Connor Is a working baker In

Councillor Eagan is A printer. Alderman
Murphy , the youngest alderman In the
United Kingdom , only 22 , says.
"I attended the first meeting of the new
council when the mayor was elected and
took note of the now men. a perfectly cool

eloquent , but having minds of their own.
Some of the faces recalled the Trench revo

In Dublin the leader of the laborltcs , or
Nanattl , is foreman printer of the Kvenlng
Telegraph. The other laborlto aldermen
and councillors are working men of differ

county Kerry , tne whole district board except
one merchant is composed of laborers. Tne
result Is that the merchant resigned , refus

There was no vote on United States senator
oda > , the two houses having adjourned over
rom Friday to Monday. For thla reason
tie senatorial situation has bren very quiet ,
learly all of the members of the legislature
laving cone homo and the boiim workers.
having little material to work upon , have
emporarlly closed up their headquarters.
Tbo result of two weeks' voting has been
.en ballots taken , one on each consecutive
lay. Compared with the closing ballot of
ast week the ballot of Friday discloses few
chances. All the funlonlsts me still voting
or Allen , as ther have b"en from the tlrst ,
and nil of them but one have taken care to
jo present. The Webster vote and Thomp
son vote are uncnangcd. Hayward'n vote
Ksterdnv was 33. whereas ho closed the first
week with 39.
It Is In the Hay ward column that Uu-
greatest change has taken place , his mni-
mum of 43 having been reached on thn scv-
? nth ballot Tuesday with a loss no far of trn
votes. Ono of these In an nosentce , who can
still be counted for him , while It la doubtful
-whether the other absentee will again record
himself In the Haywerd column.
Flejd Octn n. Bciirflt.
The defection from Hoyward has scattered
over the field , the chief benefit going to
Judge Klcld , who , after having been elim
inated from the list , has again shown up
live votes , or ono more than be started with.
Thn Oago county delegation lias during the
week been consolidated upon Weston , the
Oago county candidate , while Saline county's
representatives , who are supposed to bo to
gether , are still divided on thrcu candidates.
One of thcso vott-s has been thrown to Van
Duscn of Douglas county ns a uop fiom the
Thompson camp and It Is whispered that an
other one of the Thompson votes may no
thrown in the same direction before long.
These changes , while apparently Immate
rial , have In reality shaken the confidence
of the Hav ward men In the success of their
cause , and It Is a question whether they can
be held together much longer In Riifllclent
numbers to Keep Hnyward at the head of the
1'st. ' Hnyward may , however , bo there for
tome time yet , especially If those who Icavo
him scatter about the field , which they are
likely to do.
The Increase In the vote for Field has
led to some speculation as to the probable
action of the Lancaster delegation should
ho make a showing of strength In excess of
that disclosed by Thompson. Homo profess
to licllcve that any time Judge Field could
get ten votes from the outside counties u
part at leant of the I aneaster delegation
would bo compelled te go to him. This be-
llcf IB founded on the fact that certain
members of the delegation were originally
Field men and half pledged to vote for him.
On the other hand , It IH plain that the Field
vote has been piled up for this very pur
pose , with tlio Idea of drawing support from
under Thompson and will therefore bo dis
counted by them In advance.
Effort * ( or it Cauonn.
Efforts to transfer the senatorial flght
to a republican caucus during the last week
have proved Just ac fruitier as heretofore.
A caucus paper has been handed around all
week emanating from the Hayward follow
ers and conditioned on a two-thirds vote by
roll call , but signatures have come v < ry
slowly and not even all the Hayward men
have yet signed. Unless the deposition of
members changes no caucus on those condl-
tloDK can bo secured. The truth Is the
members are not yet ready to caucus any
more than are the candidates thcnihelvea ,
and the public may expect the struggle to
continue In the open house for several days ,
If not for a week.
While the advent of Senator Allen the first
of the week gave all the candidates und
workern the scare of their llfo they seem
to nave gotten over It entirely and to have
fccttlcd down for selge operations , It Is
foolish to venture prediction ? on the length
of the contest , yet It would not be surpris
ing If another week's fruition billotlng
would ensue. Some ono asked John L
Webster the question whether ho had en
gaged hie quartern by the month and ho
replied1 "I am afraid they are charging
mo for them at transient rates , but 1 might
Just as well have engaged them for the
month " This view U shared also by a
number of other candidates who have
practically gone Into winter quarters here
