BERLIN. Dec. 9.-Tho imperial chancel
lor. 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

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

to file the complaint, except to carry
