GROCER PAD) GREGORY MONEY More Evidence Given Against Marine Department Officials Quebec, Que., Nov. 15.-The inarino iuvesligntlon was concluded at Quebec ror the time being tonight and wlien tlio next cpramlsalon meets it will bo in St. .John or Hallfa.x. ludgo Cnssols hopes to have tl\e inquiry finished before Christntas. 'Die nio.st important evidence given this morning wus by a grocer nnmor Mer-clor who testified thnt in business with the dopnrUnont nggregaling about ?5,700 ho had paid about |C00 in commisslonH to Gregory. Ho did thl.s because ho nccderl the money, He testified that he had been udviso,1 by Cirogory not to mention the commission so paid in to his boolnference With Von Buelow More Irritation Caused Berlin, Nov. 15.--Because of tlie tragic death of Generar Count Huel-sou HnLsler, cliief of the German military cabinet, the Emperor has telegraphed Chancellor Von Beulow, that the audience arranged to take place at Kiel tomorrow nboatd the battlesliap Deutchland, must be deferred. The Emperor will return to Berlin Tuesdoy wlien the meeting with the Imperial Cliancellor, which tlie country awaits with intense feeling, is expected to take place. Count Hudson Helslcr was laughing and talking after dinner la.st evening when he suddenly fell stricken with aiioplexy in the Emperor's presence and died almost immediately. Ho had lield the position of Imperial adjutant for 10 years and was the Emperor's constant companion. The" Emperor was greatly shocked at the death of his aide. Public irritation against the Emperor ns indicated in the newspapers and in tlic general conversations wherever r)ne goes seems to he increased with the delay in the llm-peror's receiving the Chancellor. The expectation appears to be that the Emperor if ho recognizes tlio feeling of the country, will make some sort of a declaration which may tran-quiliae his subjects. , . One of the leaders of the National Liberals in the Reichstag said today "The Kmj)i-ror has lost suventy-Jivc per cent, of his indueiice in Germany within two weeks." Since the growing feeling against tlio Emperor's personal initiative both in internal and external affairs was suddenly released by his famous published interview there have been exhibitions of violence that have astonished even the advanced Radicals. "The interview" merely has been the occasion for a passiotiate expression of the German peophi's desire tliat the sovereign power shall h". limited to close constitutional interpretations. No journal can be found in the country that does not take the position that the Emporor's personal power in tlie affairs of State must be. limited. As to what course should be adopted, tile country as a whole seems to be in doubt, but the Socialista and Radicals are loud in their demands for strict Parliamentary rasponsibil-ities. The powerful Conservative interests look to Prince Von Buelow to obtain a guarantee that His Majesty will faithfully observe the will of minor German kingdoms and of Parliament. Later.-It has been announced that the audience between Emperor William and his chancellor will take place at the New Palace in Potsdam tomorrow morning.
