The Auditorium was crowded  last

A long programme was admirably

great credit upon thos*' who had
worked so patiently to train them.
To Mr. Oeo. I>. Ingram was due, iu
particular, credit for the admirable
manner iu which the youngsters acquitted themselves.

The Herald Extends To AU Its Readers
Sincere Christmas Greetings and
Heartiest Wishes for a**Happy
and Prosperous New Year
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow ;
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those whom here we see no more;
Ring out the feud of rich and poor;
Ring in redress to all mankind.
Ring out a slowly-dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.
Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.
Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the'kindlier hand ;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.
To the    thoughtful  man each  recur
ing event ol Christmas rouses prob
terns deep as serious.

the   supply bill, submitted by        the
previous governmenl at ihe beginning
of   the session     of   November, 1910,
obstructed by the then op-
tier to force a tlissolu-
n,,,i ui parliament and an appeal   to
the   people; so that the early calling
of parliament was the direct result

The estimates submitted by

those whicli bad been submitted by
their predecessors, and were voted
practically without discussion, The
present opposition party having prepared the estimates wben they had
the responsibility oi government
could nol oppose the same estimates
when submitted by their opponents,
who bad in tbe meantime been
charged with that responsibility.
While the voting of supply was  the
reason    which made an early session
I Imperative, it occupied only a    very
|stiiall    part of the     lime.    The presenting of the supply bill Is the occasion when a governmenl under     the

it  all     the mure reasonable thai  the

bj ihe government   or by the
tion, or both,    to place before

regard  to important  national affairs.
Ordinarily, the governmenl of      the
day avails itself of the opportunity of
the     opening   of    parliament    to announce iis policy iu regard to leading
questions   by    means of     the speech
from the throne.     For whatever ica-
the Borden government did   not

The most important of these discussions related to tho question of
imperial naval defence. No mention
of the subject was made In the
speech from the throne, but in the
course of the discussion it was announced by the minister of marine
that the previous [pvernment's policy
ilwd j would not ne followed, and that the
that i tenders they   had received for       the
construction ot cruisers and destrov-,
would not be acted en. No announcement was made oi the Intentions of the government, except that

defect ion from the Liberal party of
Important interests which hitherto
had given it their support. While the
principles ol the Liberal party were
recognized as favoring low tarifl, nn
important and wealthy section of lho
party had recognized higher tariff as
being in their special interest. Tho
trade arrangement with the United
Slates, being an arrangement for
reduction of tariff, was a declaration
of Liberal principle to which these interests objected, and therefore, allied themselves with the Conservative
party, always avowedly in favor of
high tariff", for the purpose of defeating the arrangement and the
government as well. Tlie minister
of finance, formerly a Liberal, is accepted as representing these interests

indicating the   intention of the   gov-j
eminent  to mees    the views ot    its'
supporters, both new and old, by revising the tariff upward in due time.
An indication of tariff policy,    even
more   definite than the announcement
as to a tariff commission, was     the
administrative action taken    by   the
customs   department    in    regard   to
duty on   rough   lumber.    Ever since
the Foster tariff of 'ill, rough lummr
has   been   admitted     tree   from the
United States    into Canada.    Under
the   customs'     definition,   partially
dressed      lumber is   admitted       as
rough, and has been so admitted oVet
since 'm.      Immediately after      the
lections the    British Columbia lumber mills raised a question as to   lho
interpretation   of    the  act, and succeeded iu securing from the new mini
ister    of    customs an "interpretation
which provides for the imposition   ol
duty upon a large proportion of    the
so-called    rough, but really partially
dressed lumber,    which was forme ly
admitted fiec.    The minister of  cu;-
loms defended his action as b*\.ig   in
itrtct accordance with the act     Vhc

opinion, and tbat it was a eas:*       ia

het-n given it by the previous a-tern
ment.      Their    arguments, horfevcr,
did not avail.       The minister maintaining his    position    that tl.:   additional duty would have to bc paid.

A sidelight on the recent elections
was given by the minister of public
works when he stated that the Liberal party had tost ground in Quebec
iH'cause the late premier had n»t
stood by the special rights nml
privileges of the French-Canadians
and Catholics in the west, while
tlie member for East Peterborough
informed the house that the Liberal
party bad been defeated iu his
constituency, and had lost ground
generally in Ontario, because it had
not dealt with the questian ol mixed
marriages, which arc not recognized
hy tlie Roman Catholic church
The same questions ot recognition
of special rights ot French-Canadians
and Catholics came up in connection
with tho proposed extension of the
boundaries of Manitoba, under thu
present government, but the government declined to say how they would

as have been offered by tho present
government, ami now have been accepted hy the province. The reticence
of the *«pvcrnmcnl in regard to this
matter of the extension of Manitoba's boundaries, is thought to have
been due in some measure to tne
conflicting claims of Manitoba ami
Ontario; and to the desire not to
tliscloff' tho final arrangements until
after the Ontario provincial elections. This would rather seem to
indicate that Manitoba's claims are
to In* upheld.
A mattei* of minor interest, and
which claimed the attention of Uie
house immediately before adjournment was tlie subject of civil service
reform as understood by the present
government. A considerable number
of dismissals of officials have taken
plaee, and this was made the subject
of discussion. Tbc premier, while in
opposition, lias always taken high
ground in regard to the maintenance
of the public service free from political influence, but in the course of the
debate he admitted that he did not
find it possible to carry out the
views that he bad previously expressed. This was not remarkable when
the announcement of the postmaster-
general is considered. He declared
that so far as his department was
concerned, if a man was dismissed
fifteen years ago, and today asked
him for ro-Instatement in the position, lie would re-Instate him wiiii
out regard to the merits or the demerits of the presenl occupant or the
position, or of the applicant. As a
declaration of principle this would
Beam to have a very wide and far-
renchinrj application, and would indicate a species of civil service reform upon which the new government
is entitled to claim the record.

Some Reminiscences by his Son, Alfred Tennyson Dickens
In   February     next   tho    English- tho house, .lohn Thompson, wakening beautifully illuminated, but when this
speaking world     will celebrate      thorny brothers Frank and Sydney   and {party got baek to   the Straw, at live
centenary    of    the
Dickons,       In this
posite Uu* Lyceum theatre in Wellington street, where later on iu the
day mosl    of   (lie  members ot tin*
family assembled, us well as ,i number of the authors and authoresses
wlm were contributors to my lather's periodical. Tlw duke's burial
was a most Impressive oeromoiiy,
and 1 recoiled as though it were

attention of us children to iht- duke's
famous charger, Copenhagen, au he
was Uil Iiy iu the proeesslon.
THK     OHIOlNAli    OF     DOCTOR
birth of Charles
connection the
following article by tho eldest, sur-
vivin-.**) sou of the great novelist, wlio
has recently returned from Australia,
Mr. Alfred Tennyson Dickens, will he
read with intercsl:
Since my father's death ill 1870
many very int'•'.'est iug books concerning his works ami his life Ir.tve
lat'ii n;.wii In tliu world hy able
writers, nol only here iu lilt gland,
hut all over l-.urope and iu America
ami tbe Colonies, wlti'it* bis novels
arc more intimately known limn arc
those of almost any oilier author of
his time. Hut each day adds to Ihe
difficulty writers oxperioncc in finding
anything worth telling aboul him,
for everything lias been told, and
whatever is now written must iuevil-
ahly read like a repetition of what
has item already said. There- are
many of my lather's admirers, how-
over, who, looking upon his memory
as they do witli the warm affection of
a personal friendship, never Ure of
reading his stories or of seeking for
further details relating to his life,
and to the desire of satisfying the
affectionate curiosity of these admirers may Im- attributed sometimes
a slight amount of exaggeration that
creeps into tlw descriptions we come
across of his habits, manner, and appearance; indeed, 1 remember having
read somewhere of various gorgeous
articles of apparel, supposed to have
been worn habitually by my (ath'-r,
that were eeetainly never seen upon
bis person, either at home or elsewhere, and that must have existed
solely in the fertile imagination of
the writer.
In the short article I am about to
writ* I shall confine myself to describing a few facts and impressions
connected with our home life and
that came under my notice during my
holidays from school, and the impressions I give of my father will be
those of the boy I was before leaving Knglaml for Australia.
I was born at No. 1 Devonshire
Place, Devonshire Terrace, almost
immediately opposite St. Marylchone
church, on October 28,  181"|, but     as

but little recollection of tlie events
which occurred in the house in which
I was born. An early reminiseen-'e
of the last-named house, showing the
kindly ihoughifulni-.ss of my fath-r,
brings me at once into touch with
that great continent of Australia
Irom which I have recently returned.
Shortly afler my father had taken up
his residence at Tavistt ck House
there appeared upon the seem* t
erossing-sweejH-r in lhe shape of
small boy. He was about f.-ui,
years nf age. and was, 1 (irmly believe, lhe original it poor .lm* in
"Dleak House," which was written,
as many of my readers may recollect, iu 1852 In ortlei lo make mv-
selt clear, 1 must explain that this
house, wilh Iwo otheis—one of which
was occupied Ity Mi. Frank Stone, \.

Depurting for a moment from the
chronological order of events, I may
hero meat ion that when the. procis-
siou td the then Prince of Wales iafterward King Kdwanl VII) and
Prince Alexairdra of Denmark passed
along the Strand in March, lStEH, my
father, my aunt, Miss (leorgina Ho-J-
arMi, and myself were Hie sole oc-
cupants of the balcony on the lirst
floor of tlie office of All the Year
Hound at the corner of Wellington
und Yoik streets. The vehicular
traffic was as a matter ol course
all blocked in Wellington street, a.id
iu front of us there was one hur,e
mass of omnibuses, cabs, carriages
ami large numbers of coster mongers'
On   the top   of    one of   tlie buses
stood   the  conductor, 	
"cad," as many of them were ttum
familiarly termed. He was a man
brimful of natural wit and humor,
and was doing the "chcapjack man"'
absolutely to perfection. He beguiled
the time and kept iln* crowd, including my father, in roars of laughter.
At Christmas, 18fJ5, In All the
Year Round "Doctor Marigold's
Prescriptions" appeared, and I think
all readers of my father will agree
with me that he never conceived a
prettier little story than that of the
tleaf and dumb girl and the cheap-
jack, and lie certainly -never created
or depicted a finer character or our
more admirably drawn than that of
Doctor Marigold. So great was the
days of issue, from      De
cember 20 to December 23, 18B5, -.ver,
two hundred and lifty thousand cop-,
ies were .sold—nntl this was at a
time when readers were very few in
number compared with those ol tli ■
present day. Although my fathei
was always very reticent as to the '
channels from   wbieh     he drew     liis j
The following evening my fathei,
my oldest brother, Charley, myself,
and two or three young men from
Uh- olliee (which I had just entered) ^ u,(,
started on foot from London
Hridge, did the whole of the elty
and West End, and saw all that
there was to be seen perfectly. When
we hati iiiiisheil our walk, my fath.-t
look the party to suppei at Evans'
famous supper rooms in Co vent- Ci at -
den. The owner of these rooms at
that time was a perfect character in
himself, who was commonly known
as Paddy Preen. He wore a wig
which was painfully transparent
lhe naked eye, carried a most elabo
ate gold snuff-box, had manners
which were icallycourtly and gracious, and dressed in exquisitely gool
taste. He knew well every celebrity in London, and whenever any
one of them patronized his house, he
invariably himself escorted the honored guest to an armchair in a sort
of a library near the entrance doors.
This was a most delightful spot in
which to spend a couple of hours, for
there every evening were rendered
glees such as "The Chough and
Crow" and "The Men of Harlech,"
by choir boys from Westminster Abbey and St. Paul's. Then again.
Herr Van .loci, another most orlgin-
o London a' character, was, witb his farmyard
imitations and quaint German songs,
always a leading attraction ot the
program. Would that the dear old
place were still in existence, for since
I returned to London last October I
have not seen anything in the whole
of this wonderful city to approach it
for comfort and civility, or for orderliness and good nature on the
part of its patrons.
During the years 1854 and 1855,
and always commemorating Charley's
birthday, our most successful children's theatricals took place. Th.*
pieces selected were Fielding's burlesque "Tom Thumb," and "Fot-
tunio," and in each of these my
brother Harry (Henry Fielding
Dickens, now tlie well known K. C,
ami recorder for Maidstone) most admirably sustained the name parts.
Among the rest ot the company were

and his talented family.

Mark Lemon was one of the most
delightful of men, and was always
called hy myself and my brothers nnd
sisters "t'ncle Mark."     He was just
characters, and never, so tar as        I   a^ut   the   middle    height, decidedly
personally know, spoke to anyone de- j n>rpulent,     with   a grandly    shaped
finitely about them, yet 1 (irmly   he-   fa^il and a face brimful    of vitality,

memorable   afternoon h March, j mosl successful   comic paper of    the

Hans Christian Andersen was one
of tho most singular men I have ever
met in my tile. In appearance he
was like an elongated Tom Pinch,
with a lank, ungainly figure, and
with all the simplicity of Tom. He
was so unversed in tlie ways of 'nc
world that one could almost believe
Ik* had spent his life with the fairies
of whom he wrote so charmingly.

dinner, he trow mil Wilkie Collins
with one ol his wreaths, just as we
were passing the Falsi aft Inn, almost immediately opposite (lad's
Hilt, where a large number of hop-
pickers were sitting at the table in
the porch. Poor Wilkie, to his intense disgust, had to run the gauntlet
of the pickers, who gibed and Jeered
at him to their hearts content. My

His eyes were a true index to
character. Leigh Hunl said of hlm
"What a face is his to meet in n
drawing-room 1 II has the life iu It
of fifty human beings"; nnd Carlyle,
referring to the fineness of fits fi't-
tures, said, "it Bcemc to me ns
though his face were cut out of
steel." His features were far loo
sensitive, however, to he likened t<>
so hard and unsympathetic a substance. He was the kindest, mosl
thoughtful, antl most considerate of
fathers, and he was one of the
most charming hosts il is possible
to conceive. While he had a fund of
anecdote and humor, lie was never in
the least pedantic or bookish In h'l
talk, and if anyone referred to himself or his hooks, he invariably in a
very pleasant way turned the conversation in another channel.
As in his public autl professional
life he laid down for himself the
golden rule that "Whatever is worth
doing at all is worth doing well," so
in his private life he was the m.-st
methodical and orderly of mm. He
could not bear to see anything out
of its place. If a hook was removed
Irom the library, he looked for the
borrower to return it Immediately it
was done with. I recollect once
when I was going to drive with him
in the basket carriage to Oravcsend
to meet either Mr. Spiers or Mr.
Pond (I forget whicli of these two
gentlemen it was>, who was coming
over to see him about the contemplated Australian reading, I was busily encaged brushing my coat in the
li ling room Instead ot -itside. He
happened to come in fust nt thi! n *"•
ntent, and I never hy any chance
committed that particular offense afterward.
In everything pcrtainim' tc food
and drink In- was Ihe most careful
and abstemious of men. Mr. Fields,
of Ticknor and Fields, Uh* Boston
publishers, described him ex.u tty
when he said: "He was accustomed
to talk and write a good deal about
eating and drinking, but I have rarely seen a man think ot eat less, lie
liked to dilate In Imagination over
the brewing ol a howl of punch, ei',
when the punch wai brewed, he
drank less of it than anyone aim
might Ih* present." It was the sentiment of the thing nnd not the thing
itself that engaged his attenti-m He
was wonderfully good and even tempered, although, ho may In* easily
imagined, of a nervous nntl excitablo
temperament. If he did allow his
temper to get the better <l him for
a few moments, which, however. In-
very rarely ever did, then, like the
sun after a passing summer shower,
all the most lovable traits of his
most lovable character shone out to
greater advantage afterward,
That ts the Charles Dickens of ,m
loving recollection. In 186S I Aent
to Australia, and I never saw him
again. j
Five years later, when I was man-'
aging a large station property in the

Hon of crime and violence, whothor
developing in trade unions, in commercial enterprises, tn* in the conduct
nf daily newspapers. There can lie
no distinction as tn nualtty ot par-
licipaiiis iii crime, no palliation ui
crime, no excuse for crime; and tm*

crime- committed by » member of a
trade union, one among the millions
nf organized wage earners, ox Iiy an
oUlcer ol a limit* union, our anion;;
the thousands ol such oflicers, Bmacks
much of an attempt lo cover up
crime in other quarters and in on-
largo tlio opportunity fnr criminals
in high places, and this eltorl Is by
(lit* interests that are suspected of
controlling the utterances ol supposedly publie mouthpieces and niold-
ois of public opinion.
We, the International officers located in Indianapolis, believed that John
.1. McNamara was tho victim of as
fun I a conspiracy as was ever hatch-
i-tl. That bcliel was fostered, nurtured and grew into conviction largely
because of the manner in which McNamara was spirited from Indianapolis and harried tn n distant city,
supposedly hostile lo organized labor.
In order that McNamara might he
rushed from the city ot his residence,
private, detectives, tlio Indianapolis
police department, a judge of iis police court, the mayor of llu* city and
the governor of the state, all len I
their aid in violation pf law. Thus
was crime perpetrated by Uwse who
ostensibly sought to punish crime,
and thus was our belief in n conspiracy justified by the representatives nl tho law ami those who artel
with them.
As to the events to whidi wc allude, we quote from our statement of
May 10, 1010, wherein wc sel forth
that "Un* Bccrotary-trcasurer of tbc
International Association of Bridge
antl Structural Iron Workers was arrested in his office without service of
warrant, hustled to tbc police court,
and, without regard lo tlie provisions
td tbe law relative to extradition
proceedings-, and while his associates
were, held prisoners in their *iwn
headauartcra by local and Imported
detectives, was given summary hearing in a court having no jurisdk-
lion, denied Ibe right tn be heard by
himself and counsel, guaranteed by
the constitution, and was then immediately transported from Wits state
iu ilu*    confines of a  jail in another
Continuing, we asserted: "if this
method ol procedure is sanctioned,
are we not all in tho same peril?
May not tin* officers of Uu* law or
private detective agencies enter our
i fflccs at any time, arrest us, ransack
our lilt*s and place our organizations
in such a condition that they can not
transact their official business? Is
lliis the new short cut thai has
luen mado for the overthrow of
unionism'' l-'ailinn iu the usual assaults on the trade unions as such,
are their inlenratlonal headquarters
to be at the mercy or private detective agencies in the employ of manufacturers' associations?"
Now Uml ihe McNamaras have
pleaded guilty, there can, ol course,
be no question of their guilt, and
wilh tin-in we have nothing more to
do except lo reiterate onr previous
estimate ol the crime for which they
now plead responsibility as "holnoili
and revolting."
When we came to their defense wi
acted iu the light of eirciiinstaiice:
as we have explained them, autl wt
assert thai we did only our duty uu
der thu conditions that then existed.
If the law is again ruthlessly trampled under foot, violated ami sel ul
naught, iu otilet* that a representative of a trade union may hr* kidnapped, we will take exactly tho
saint* position and action as ou the
former occasion. The guilt ol the
McNamaras hail neither then nor now
anything to do with, nor can it Im
pleaded iu extenuation of, the guilt
of thoso who were responsible lor tho
outraging of the rights ot u citizen,
even though that citizen himself may
have lieen guilty of n crime. The
guilt of Die kidnapers (s no less guilt
than it wns when the illegal art
was perpetrated.
While professing the utmost horror
ami condemnation for the crimes to
which the McNamaras have no v
pleaded guilty, and, while asserting
that the history of trade unionism is
freer from   crime than Is (he history
ol any other organized human effort,
wc at tho same Unit! desire to call
attention to another phase of this remarkable criminal even!, whieli, when
the log of sensationalism and newspaper hysterical Ism has cleared awi v,
will impress [tsell on lho minds of all
thoughtful, camps! and conscientious
men: Tlie Los Angeles Times, Ua1
tliciais i f iln- nnlH'niun associations, the opponents of organized tf-
forl of all description mi Uu* part of
the wage earners, Irom what ever
quarter they may come, have Incessantly ami at every opportunity indulged   iu Inflammatory, vicious   and
ischit-vous denunciation of the trade
unions, their officers and their members, and now give forth added venom and concentrated hostility while
Indulging in Iheir favorite occupation
since the  McNamaras pleaded guilty
Every hostile newspaper, antl Uml
means every newspaper controlled by
the interests, ami there are many of
them; every officer of the hostile associations, every opponent ol tra'de
unionism, has gone into an ecstacy ol
enthusiasm iu denunciation of tho
trade unions, not because of the crime
to which ilie McNamaras plead guilty, but because opportunity has nceu
afforded to strike another Mow ;M
the organized wage earners; another
avenue, has been presented through
which to arouse suspicion and dissension in their ranks, and another
hauce has been availed of to proceed wilh tbe atlcmpl at their disruption and disintegration, Before the
catastrophe and Blnco that time the
Los Angeles Times has indulged iu
defamation and villi ileal Ion of the
Irade unionists and the trade unions;
its utterances have been more violent and anarchistic than the contents oi any of tbe ultra-radical publications whose object is to destroy
society by violence and anarchy,
I'he Los Angeles Times was, and is.
respecter of persons, creeds or
conditions. Every trade unionist,
very officer of a trade union, every
representative of any movement that
was distasteful to-the-editor of the
Times, suffered from tlie baleful effect
it the merciless and brutal eastigi-
tion that he administered, ami thai
he had au opportunity to give expression to simply because lie is the
owner of a dally newspaper. Journalism ran riot, liberty tinned to license, the floodgates Of vituperation
and character assassination opened nl
his touch, becausi* lie has an engine
of destruction at his command, au
engine more powerful when damnably
used than dynamite, bombs or nitroglycerine. Ile reveled in an orgy ot
editorial crime aud newspaper licentiousness. Krom ihe standpoint of
law and humanity the McNamaras
are guilty of a terrible ami revolting
crime and will now suffer the penalty
for their wrong-doing; from a moral
standpoint tho proprietor of the
Los Angeles Times is just as guilty
as the McNamaras, ami iu his guilt
he is joined by those representatives
of tlie anil-union associations who
inflame the minds of the wage-
earners, who force on them tbo one
idea of the hopelessness of their
struggle and who indulge in legalized
crime in order thai profli may thrive
and greed may be nurtured.
Despite the shrieking ot the hostile
press, despite the insane rejoicing ol
the enemies of labor, and despite the
great addition which has lieen Imposed on labor's burden by those who .ue
recreant to its cause, lho lull Imporl
of this tremeiidtus development in the
relations between capital ami labor
will finally assert itself, ami tbo
criminals who can mil be reached by
law will not go iinwhlppcd of tbe
seorn ol public opinion.
To tho millions tit trade unionists
throughout llle eolililit-nt we convey
(bis message:
It can not be denied that labor iu
its organized uud unorganized form
bus suffered temporarily, hut as it
has recovered from many reverses, as
it has arisen Irom many defeats, so
will it rise again, more powerful,
compact ami determined, lor Its
cause is just and its methods are
correct. Thu storm ol villilleation
ut prercnt raging will subside, ami !u
the clear sunlight of u bettor day tha
causes and the reasons and the Impelling motives that have broughl
about the mosl regrettable events lo
which we make reference, will bo

moral criminals, those crlmins of Unmoral criminals, those criminals ot
the employing class, those criminals of
used by them at every opportunity at
their command, will stand fortu

Manual training is not vocational
training. Aceocdtng to Dr. David
Sneddon, ol Massachusetts, "A liberal education is one that is intended
to free the mind and develop it to the
uttermost. Vocational training is
an education which fits people to do
a particular kind of work in the
world—a productive work whereby
they earn a living."
The medical school, business college, normal school and agricultural
college give vocational training.
Manual I raining (woodwork) is vocational io those who intend to become carpenters, but certainly not
vocational for tbc future clerk or
lawyer. This docs not detract Irom
Us educational value, as It is tbe
very kind of education that broadens,
ripens and deepens the general capacity, Imt docs not fit one directly to
•arn a living.
Vocational training Ik narrow in Hs
aims. Manual training ls broad,
aiming at general rather than specific
Vocational training is in the Interests of the employer, manual training in the interests of the hoy himself.
Wo need in these days not only to
"put the whole boy to school," tut
lo "put every boy to school and
train head and hands together."
January 12 next will be the greatest day in German history since ihe
war ol 1870. The ultimate results
of tbe national election to be held
on that day will exert such an in-
fluence on transatlantic commerce
and industry, and likewise upon international relations, that students ol
politics ought to follow it with close
attention. It has been called "the
lu- or not to be election," inasmuch
as upon its issue depends the continued existence of all tbe political
and economical institutions which In
tbe eyes of the outside world are
modern Germany.
Tho present reichstag, the twelfth
since the union of Germany, expires
In February, five years after its election in 1907. It will be dissolved a
few weeks before. Tlie new reich-
siag will be elected, like all others,
oa equal, free, universal, and secret
suffrage. Every male over 25 has a
right to vote. All votes arc ol
equal value.
In theory at least tliere is complete
freedom of dunce ot candidates. The
elector delivers at the polling booth,
which is presided over by honorary
ofllolats, bis ticket, which must he
ou white paper. The ticket is deliver.il scaled, or in an envelope, and Is
thereupon   deposited in a voting urn.
To lie successful a candidate must
poll more than hall the total votes
cast. This does not always happen,
as tbere are usually three or more
candidates. Failing such an absolute
majority, a "stlchwahl," or second
election, is Md a fortnight later l-c
I ween the two candidates with the
most votes. The other excluded
candidates usually transfer their
votes to the party nearest to them.
Thus a typical German election
WOtlM Im*:
Meyer (Center party) 3,575 votes.
Schmidt (National-Liberal) 3,210
Henckcl (Freisinn)  1,774 votes.
In the "stlchwahl" Henckel would
be excluded, and would probably give
bis votes to the National-Liberal
candidate, so that the election (presuming that the same number voted)
would probably be:
Schmidt, 4,984 votes.
Meyer, 3,575 votes.
A German election thus is seldom
decided according to the preponder-
| a nee of one of the five great relchstiu
parties. It is decided on the basis
of tactical and often temporary combinations; and when the strongest
[party in a constituency, when it
cannot command allies, is often beaten hy a considerably weaker party.
I The live great parties in the reichstag are the Conservative, the Centre
(Clerical and Catholic) the National-
Liberal, the    Freisinn  (Radical) and
the Social Democrats,    The election
now being fought is, put roughly, between the    iirsl two in combination
ami the last three, more or less     in
agreement.     The   Conservative-Clerical party is     tlie famous "blue-black j
block,"     ou   which Chancellor      von
Dethiiiaiin-Ilollweg   relies for a reichstag majority. I
Thu three opposition panics do not
form    a coalition, although attempts j
have been     made   to induce them to.
■Tho famous publicist, Fricdiicli Nau-
maiin,   invented    the   phrase "From
iBasserinann to Bebol," meaning that1
the     National-Liberals   with Easser- ■
matin as  chief, should (via the inter-1
mediate   Freisinn) join the Socialists
under   Augiml   Hehel.    Tho Liberals
and   Freisinn   and the    Freisinn and [
Socialists   havo    certain agreements!
about not splitting forces lu doubtful
electoral districts and    about mutual
suppori in • slieliwahlen."     Hut     the
tin it parties remain independent    of
one another and   are united only    in,
their common ambition lo overthrow
tlie "blue-black block."                     |
Conservatives  2,050,000
Center '2,145,000
National-Liberals  1,718,000
Freisinn  1,311,000
Socialists  3,259,000
Minor parties     715,000
The reichstag membership does not
correspond to this voting, the Socialists, with more votes tha'iv the Conservatives, having less than half the
number of members. That fact Is
due to tbe unequal distribution of
electoral districts, The seats are
apportioned as in 1871, but since
1871 the population has grown enormously aud unequally, It has
grown most in lhe towns and the
industrial west, where the Socialists
are strong; and least iu the country,
particularly iu the agricultural east—
the kingdom of East Klbia—whero
tho feudal Conservatives are lords
and masters. Hut the west has got
no increased number of reichstag
members.       If tlw Socialist member
ship was increased in proportion to
Socialist voters, then the party in
lf-117 would have Won about 170 reichstag seats, whereas it won inly
Ill 1807-'0D, during Buolbw's regime, tlie Socialists dill not win one
'bye-elect ion. Since 11)1111, under
Hothinauu-llullweg, they have won no
less than ten, and eight ot these
were gained at the expense of tllii
two "blue-black block" parties. In
1907 the Socialists were badly defeated. Their parly of eighty-one
was cut down to forty-three. With
the aid ot the subsequent hye-elec*-
I'lons, they now have fifty-niic members, and few doubt that the coming
election will restore the old clglity-
one. Some predict 100; a few enthusiasts say Llu. The genuine Hoi*
lalist vote is precisely known, The
question is how many thousands of
"-bourgeois"     Who are opposed        to
programmatic Socialism will vote
with the Socialists merely as the
most extreme way of displaying
their anti-government bias?
That the election will deal a bbw
to tbe government no man doubts.
The question is, How severe will be
the blow? But cool minded critics
ure not iucliiu.ed to exaggerate the
Socialist victories, and are quite certain that, however severe the government defeat, the day of the Radical-Socialistic majority iu tho reichstag has not yet dawned.
