Dr. Von Dethmann-Hollweg, today defied Parliament to pass amendments to the constitution proposed by the social ists, making the Imperial chancellor re sponsible to the House for the act of tho emperor and providing for his dis missal on the demand of the House. Phlllpp Schctdemann, one of the social ist leaders, at the opening of the budget debate today moved tha adoption of the amendments put forward by his party nnd appealed to the House to refuse to vote supplies Until Chancellor Von Beth-mann-Hollwcg had either resigned or been dismissed by the emperor. The chancellor thereupon rose and de clared the amendments were a clear In vasion of the Imperial prerogative, and announced that he had neither presented hts resignation nor did he intend to do so as a consequence of tho vote of non confldcnco pasted by the House on De cember i, "This vote," he said, "wo not similar to votes of censura in countries governed purely by Parliaments. To the chancellor that vote merely signified that he and the Imperial Parliament had different opinions. In Germany th emperor alone has the right of npproachlng the Im perial chancellor. It is unconstitutional to attempt to bring pressure on his majesty either by votes of non-confidence or by th refusal of supplies and the propocal of amendments to tho constitu tion to meet his unbending resistance.' Tho chancellor declared that he knew tho majority of the German nation was unwilling that the emperor's power should bo subjected to socialist restric tions. llrrr flchneldmnnn Responds. In his speech proposing the constitu tional amendment Herr Bohneldmaan re ferred to the recent Incidents at Zabern and lamented that the clever statesman ship and th policy of peace shown abroad by Germany has not been mani fested In the interior of, tho country. "I warn the house," ho said, "against failure to follow its vote of censuro on the government with necessary steps to establish tho responsibility of Parliament and to dip the wings of tho military In the country. Tho aroused popular opin ion of the nation Is now behind the Par liament and will support it In limiting tho monarchlal power by legislative act Parliament should refuse to discuss tho budget until Its terms have been ac cepted." Herr Schneldmann sarcastically de clared "Dr. VonBethmann-Hollweg Is n. great s(atcsman who has succeeded In uniting th popular opinion of the nation, not for hi policy, but against It Dr. Von Bethmann-Hollweg is not a sticker In office, but haa been stuck there to go down to history a tho Imperial chan cellor who menat well, but failed to un derstand hU times.", Contrr Party te Kcsonc, The fate of tha socialist amendments and tho proposed rjfusal' of supplies to tho government tuariettlfl regardless of the chancellor's attitude .Vvlien Dr. Peter tfpalio, oi tne center parry, unnounviw that ht party would oppose the amend ments and would vote tho budget, not for tho chancellor, but for tha German nation. Ho again, gave uterahc to a censure of the chancellor for his fall uro to Inform the , Imperial Parliament that tho necessary 'steps bod been taken to keep tho military authorities at Za bern in their place. Ho soorea me gov ernment also for punlshhlng the town of Kaborn and not th guilty officers, by removing the garrison from tho placo and shutting off a source of revenue from the citizens. purpose of the collusion.

He further claims that the debt of the Frisco to tho North American company, which brought tho receivership suit, was se cured amply, and that there was no reason for tho North American company to file the complaint, except to carry out a collusive agreement. Ho also charged that the receivers for the Frisco, in order to protect Campbell, Yoakum, West. Blxby and associates from the lawful claims of stockholders and bondholders, employed as attorney for tho receivers tho attorney for tho raltrbad. This attorney, It Is charged, also was attorney for Yoakum. West, CampbeU and Blxby.
