Relief from the Famous Fourth Clause the Object of Most of the Petitioners— Manufacturers of the Pacific Coast Urge the Enforcement of the Clause. Washington, April 21.—The Interstate Commerce Commission is being flooded with appeals for relief, requests for construc tions of the law and decisions upon hypo thetical questions nncl conundrums of bewildering diversity of character. A Majority of those who ash- for relief find their grievance in the long and short haul led ion. but many protests have been re solved against the suspension of that sec tion. The New Almon Quicksilver Mining Company of California, the largest quick silver producing concern in the United States, writes that its principal market is in jj ew York, where its produc t comes in com petition with (Spanish quicksilver. The present transcontinental rates have shut them out of the New York market entirely. the fruit growers. California fruit producers almost daily present the disasters threatened to them by the new rates. On the other hand, the manufacturers of the Pacific const are protesting energetically against the suspension of the fourth section, so far as it applies to transcontinental 10 \n application from the Southern Pacific rood for a suspension of the fourth section ivas argued by counsel this forenoon, and the Northern "Pacific road made a similar application in the afternoon. The counsel for a prominent New York shipping firm, which runs a line of vessels via Cape Horn, was also heard to-day in op position to the suspension of the fourth sec tion. STONEWARE MANUFACTURERS WAIL. A stoneware manufacturer of Strasburg, y a , complains that since the interstate jornmerce law went into effect tho road re fuses to transport their output as heretofore unless put in crates, and at the same time have raise 1 their charges about one-half. He says that if this continues every stone ware establishment (six in number) will be forced to close within six weeks. He asks to be informed “if you can’t make some ar rangements” to restore the former condi tions. THE CONDUCTORS HAKE IN. “A sufferer” from Mankato, Minn., writes to the commission that for the last five years the [>eople of that vicinity have been paying their fares to conductors, thereby making a goodly saving. Suddenly the conductors nave experienced a change of heart and are charging schedule rates, evidently fearing the effect of the new law. He asks aid from the commission for a return to the old system. Several fanners of Orange county, N. Y., representing farmers and milk producers of that county, have sent in a petition, setting forth that-the rates charged 7Vo\v York, Like Erie and Western Railway Company for transporting milk to Jersey City, a distance of fifty miles, are um'eason *ble and unjust. HIGH KATES. | The rate charged amounts to 35 per cent, of the value of the product, with 5 per cent, more for ferriage to New York, which is moiv than is charged upon other t raffle of a like value and no greater risk. The charge upon milk from Summit, in New York, n distance of 184 miles, is the same as from Orange county. In the estimation of the petitioners this being no greater for a longer than a shorter distance "is an undue and unjust preference to particular persons and localities. Like complaints are made against the New Yw-k,Ontario and Western. Tt , ? r Jb khisquehaiina and Western, and Lehigh \ alley and Hudson River roads, ibe'petitioners ask such immediate action as shall seem just mid equitable to the end tiiat said corporations may be restrained from continuance of the aids complained of. attitude of wool merchants.

Washington, April 21. —Tho Secretary of the Treasury has received two claims for the Twiggs swords, which were seized by Gen. Butler in New Orleans in 18(52, and which are now in the Treasury.

The Special Commissary at Pag-ny-Sur- Moselle the Prisoner—Charges that He Was Treacherously Decoyed Across the Line and then Chased Back Into France. Paris, April 21.—M. Schnaebeles, Special French Commissary at Pagny-Sur-Moselle Depot, has been arrested by the Germans. Ho hod received several letters from the German Police Commissioner at Ars asking him to come to that place and confer with him regarding tho frontier service. He finally agreed to do so. AVhile on his way to Ars he was roughly seized by German jinlico and was taken to Noveant, from which place he wa%sent to Metz. The Met zer Zeituny says M. Schnaebeles' arrest is due to his connection with the anti-German agitation conducted by the patriotic league, but the people of Pagny-Sur-Moselle declare this to bo entirely untrue, aud say that he had nothing to do with the agitation. The incident has thrown the inhabitants of Metz and Nancy into the wildest state of excite ment. Rentes were unfavorably affected by the arrest of M. Schnaebeles. The market for ■i percent, rentes for account became flat and quotations declined 45 centimes during the afternoon, closing at the lowest prices. The arrest of M. Schnaebeles has produced a profound sensation, and it is feared may lead to unfortunate results. Lr Paris calls it "another provocation,” and asks if Prince Bismarck is seeking a casus bell i. pictured as an outrage. The Germans requested Commissary Schnaebeles to set up one of tho posts which mark the frontier. The commissary crossed the boundary and advanced a few yards on German soil, when he was seized by German police agqnts, who were disguised in gray blouses. He knocked the agents down and escaped back to French territory, hut he was again seized, handcuffed and sent to Metz, where he was placed in the prison in which accused persons are con fined l>c fore trial. The warrant for his arrest emanated from the jiublic prosecutor at Metz, who acted under instruc tions from Strasburg. The French procu rator at Nancy has gone to Pagny to in quire into the affair. Most of the Paris evening papers make no comment on the incident. Liberie says it is exjiedient to refrain from comment until Germany shall have explained the occur rence. GERMANY’S MILITARY ACTIVITY. Berlin, April 21.—Tho activity shown in military circles during the past few days, and the fact that large uumoei-s of soldiers have traveled over various railways en route to join their respective regiments, have given rise to flesh war rumors and caused much uneasiness. It is semiofficially announced, however, that all this activity is due solely to the fact*, that the reserves have 'been called oirtMfcr the usual spring drill. A ROW AT AN IRISH RALLY. The Platform Stormed and the Furni ture in the Hail Smashed. London, April 21. —Mr. Gladstone writes that he does not desire a general election to Parliament until tho English miud is as ripe on the Irish questionas the Welsh and Scotch minds are, but that that time is rapidly advancing. “Anyhow,” he says, “I am prepared to face anything to defeat coercion. I con tinue to hope for much from a vigorous action on the part of the constituencies whose rep resentatives in Parliament have decisive votes on the issue. In the House of Lords to-day Earl Cado gan moved a second reading of the land hill. Baron Denman moved rejection of tile hill, which, he said, was likely to hurry landlord and tenant into litigation. The debate was not concluded to-day. SANDERSON’S BLUFF. London, April 22, 5 a. m. —The News this morning savs that Maj. Saunderson has al lowed it to become known that he will Ik: ut home during certain hours of the day should any one desire to eommunicate with him in a hostile spirit in respect to the accusation made by him against the members of the league. At a meeting of the Ladias’ Liberal Asso ciation at Kensington last evening, at which several members of Parliament were pres ent, a row arose on the Irish question. Finally the platform was stormed and a free tight ensued, in which the furniture in the hall was smashed and pieces used os weapons. Police succeeded in restoring order after a hard struggle, n uiking several arrests. Many persons were injured, including two mem liersof the House of Commons. The ladies present, among whom was Mrs. Ashton- Dilke, made their way to the sides of the hall, whence they witnessed the row. THE TIM KB 1 PUBLICATIONS.

St. Louis, Mo., April 21.—A special from Ozark, Mo.says the Bald Knobbem’ situation is becoming more serious each day and the prisoners are beginning to show considerable uneasiness. Yesterday Charlie Graves, a prominent member of tho midnight raiders, entered the confessional and, after a long story of the raids ho hail attended, giving the names of tho men who had accompanied him, he fixed the murder of George Edens on John Matthews. On the first assault on Edens’ house George was shot down but. not killed. After ransacking the house the masked men retired and George’s mother was holding George’s head while he lay on the floor. Matthews appeared at the door and took deliberate aim at the wounded limn and put a bullet through his head, killing him. Graves says ho met John Matthews coming from the house and heard him say that he was mad because he had been wounded in the back of the head, mid hail returned to the house just as the party were leaving and finished the work liegim on George Edens. Larsons, Simons and will Newton want to make confessions to save themselves, hut the prosecution refuse to accept them, as they say they now have enough testimony. SCHNAUBELT IN NOR WAY. Chicago’s Alleged Bomb Thrower Sends a Letter Homo. Chicago, April 21.—The Daily News says: “A letter from Rudolph Sohnaulielt, the much-looked-for Anarchist and alleged thrower of the Haymarket bomb, has been received in Chicago, and those who are in position to know do not for a moment doubt ita authenticity. Tho letter is dated ‘Christiania, Norway, March, 1887.’ and reached here through the medium of an Anarchist sheet issued in Loudon by an Austrian Socialist named Joseph Pike, and who is an old friend of tSehnaubelt. Tho fugitive denies throwing the bomb, hut intimates that he is sorry lie did not do it and that lie only left because he knew it was not safe for him here. He deferred any account of his travels until he can write again, hut it is understood by his friends bore that he was on the Pacific coast until the Anarchist trial ended in Chicago and then worked his way to Canton, thence going to Sydney, later'on to Bombay mid finally to Norway." PROHIBITION IN IOWA., Gov. Larrabee Praises the Workings of the Law. DesMoines, la., April2l.—Gov. Larrabee has written a letter in reply to an inqu ry from the Secretary of the Central Commit tee of the Prohibition Campaign Committee of Texas in regard to the workings of pro hibition in lowa. The Governor says that in SO out of 1(0 counties of tin* State prohibi tion is enforced, and in the remaining IK counties it is partly enforced; that no projierty has Been depreciated by its enforcement, as saloons make room for better and more legitimate business; that the enforcement of the law has had no noticeable effect upon the popu lation beyond causing the removal from the State of some incurable dispensers and per haps incurable consumers. The effects of prohibition ujxm the general welfare and habits of the people, In* says, are decidedly wholesome. The prohibition sentiment is on the increase, and there is no doubt that prohibition is an established power in lowa. RIDENOUR CONVICTED. The Prisoner Greatly Agitated at the Announcement.

THE LOWER HOUSE OF THE DIET BEGINS THE DEBATE. Herr Windthorot Explains the Atti tude of the Centre Party on the BUI —Bismarck Threatens to Abandon His Office as President of the Prus sian Ministry if the Bill is Defeated. Berlin, April 21. —The debate on the ecclesiastical hill was begun in the lower house of tho Prussian Diet to-day. Herr Wiudthorst, the clerical leader, declared that the Centre party would submit to tho Pope’s wishes and would vote for tho bill as it passed the upper house and without offer ing any of the amendments which the Centre had intended to propose as licco-ssmy to make the bill entirely acceptable to the Catholics of Germany. Tho Centre party, Herr Windthorst added, would renew the fight against the government If at any time the Catholic interests wore affected. Prince Bismarck declared t hat if tho bill was rejected he would abandon his office as President of the Ministry of State for Prus sia. and devote his entire time to tho service of the empire. “As perhaps,” he said, “a hard external and internal struggle against the revolutionary party is imminent, I de sire first to settle all unnecessary internal disputes.” Herr Richter condemned the bill because, he said, the provisions regarding the right, of confirmation and protest by the state in ecclesiastical appointments would promote servility. He protested against the action of the rope in interfering in tho elections for metubership in the Reichstag. BISMARCK’S REPLY. Prince Bismarmc declared that Ilerr Rich ter was more Catholic than the Pope, anil added: “It must, he admitted ttiat in the eyes of the German Catholics the papacy is no foreign institution. The result of the elections would have been the same with or without the opposition of the Centreists. The result of the election was not the out come of an anxiety by t he expression of aspi ration or the attitude of tlieopjiohifcion under Herr Richter. The jiointut issue was not to combat a political group, hut to secure tin* preservat ion of the empire from injury, and tiiat 1 desired to form a majority for myself was quite natural. All national parties should endeavor to meet the Curia as far as it was compatible with State rights. This is feasible by adopting the present hill as it has passed the Oberhaus Modifications will increase the government’s arduous task. In all phases of the Kultur kampf 1 acted in accordance with my politi cal convictions. The hill concedes nothing that will endanger the state’s authority.” Bismarck’s source of power. Prince Bismarck then appealed to the members of the national parties to not re ject the hill. The moment was favorable for a conclusion of jieace in the religions war that had so long been waged in Ger many. He declared that a considerable por tion of Hr influence in Kuroj* rented on the confident manifested in his political hon esty and trustworthiness by the representa tives of the German people. Herr Virchow opposed the bill as a meas ure tending to strengthen the Pope's hier archical power. Prince Bismarck in reply to this observed that Hon' Virchow opjxwed him as a matter of principle on all great questions. “I never,” said the Prince, “described the May law3 as a final institution, hut always as laws of combat, as is now the case with the anti-Soeialist law. I have solely striven to satisfy the lovers of peace among the Catholics. I never aimed to keep a ) nation of my fellow citizens under permanent pressure.” Herr von Gerlach expressed approval of the bill, coupled with a wish that greater independence might be granted the Evan gelic church. Trio debate was then ad journed until to-morrow. ACCUSED OF IGNORANCE. In refuting Herr Richter’s statements as to the Pope’s meddling in the recent elec tions, Prince Bismarck remarked that Herr Richter apparently did not even read the papers which lie himself wrote or in spired, or lio would know that in French political circles Russia’s attitude was very carefully watched, and that even with most of the Nationalist papers of Russia the question whether France would he a friend or enemy in the event of the adoption of any particular policy played a very im portant part. ENGLAND AND THE VATICAN. Herr Richter, continued the Chancellor, ha/1 referred to England with great em phasis, which was all very well ir his refer ences were correct, but before emphasizing them ho ought to have understood the po litical situation and recent events there. Prince Bismarck further said there was Hit little doubt that England had a strong desire to obtain the Pope’s supitort, first against the Fenians and later against the Parnollites, and indeed no secret had (icon made of the fact. Russia’s Finances. Hr. Petersburg, April 21.—Russia has issnisl a I per cent, internal loan amounting to 100.0U0.W0 roubles at 84 per cent.

Tiie Government Orders the Apaches to Alabama. Jacksonville, Fla., April 21.—This morning at St. John’s Episcopal church at (1 o’clock Gaston LaCroix, a popular French gentleman of this city, was married to Miss Eugenia Comstock, Rev. R. H. Wei lor per forming the ceremony. The happy pair left on the 8:20 o’clock train for Fernandina and will go thence to Savannah on a brief bridal tour. Orders have been received at. St. Augus tine from the War Department tor the re moval of the Apache Indians confined theve in old Fort Marion to Mount Vernon, Ala., and preparations for the t ransfer are now going on. Yesterday Col. Pratt, of the United States army, who has charge of the famous Indian school at Carlisle, Pa. passed through the city on route to the old eity, where he will gather together whatever re mains of the Indian children who may be eligible to enter the school and take them back with him. If there is anything the average Apache particularly dislikes it. isjo he hauled around over the country in railroad trains. At least it. would seem so, for it, is said that as soon as the news of their intended removal reached the ears of the dusky braves they made the walls and ramparts of the old fort echo with their loud grunts and expressions of disapproval at this arbitrary action of Uncle Bam. They have made night hideous thereabouts for the lust few evenings by the incantations and orgies of their mysterious medicine dance. It is a misrepresentation to say that they were poorly fra, ill-treated or unhealthy; on the contrary they wore well cared for nnd had become seemingly perfectly contented with their lot. It is a question whether they will be any better provided for elsewhere, and certainly they can lie no healthier. GEORGIA’S CAPITAL. CITY. Supreme Court Rulings Session of the Physicians.

Savings in the Army and Civil Servic# Estimates—A Falling Off in the Re ceipts from Liquor Taxes—A Surplus Estimated for the Ensuing Year—Th* Statement Not Well Received. London, April 21.—Mr. Gosehen, Chon* oilier of the Exchequer, introduced li e budget in the House of Commons this after noon. From it it appears tliat during th* last year the exjiensrs of the government amounted to £20,000,000, and that the reve nues reached the same sum. There has been a saving of £202,000 in the army estimates, and of £;H7,(KH) in the estimates for the civil service. The revenue obtained hy taxes on alcoholic liquors had decreased £190,000*- while that, derived from the beer tax had in creases! £15,000. The receipts from win* taxes have fallen oiTj£93,ooo, and those from the tax on tea have largely increased. H.r William Vernon Harcourt had estimated that the surplus for the year would he £252/ 000, while it really reached £770,000. The budget estimate the revenues for tha coming year at £01,1.55,000, and the expend- • itures at £!M), 180,000.
