ARRESTED ON FRENCH SOIL.
French paix-rs are unanimous in the state
ment that 3f. Schnaebeles was arrested on
French soil by German officers. The Temps
publishes a dispatch from Strasburg stating
that the German officials suspected 31.
Schnaebeles of having relations with
jx-rsons in Germany for the pur
pose of obtaining information
concerning the military measures being
taken around 3letz for the use of the French
military officials. The authorities of the
Foreign Office believe that the German gov
ernment will make mi explanation of the
affair that will calm the present indignation
felt by Frenchmen. Political and financial
circles taken gloomy view of the situation.
The Gentian Charge d’Affaires has in
formed 31. Flourens that Germany has not

IMPEACHMENT OF A LIEUTENANT
New York’s Senate Chamber tho Scene
of the Rumpus-An Attempt by the
Radicals to Crawl Out of a Corner the
Cause of the Trouble—A Chance to
Explain Not Given.
Albany, N. Y., April 22.—The Senate
this morning witnessed the most oxciting
and disorderly scene of the present session.
During the session it was rumored that Gov.
Hill, in view of Wednesday's discussion over
his withdrawal of the nominations of
Messrs. Armstrong and Buckbee, Labor men,
as Railroad Commissioners, jn-ojjoeed to
withdraw the nominations of Messrs. Rogers
and Baker and send in again tho names of
3l(-ssi-s. Armstrong and Buckbee. Routine
business was almost completed shortly after
12 o’clock, when Mr. Raines (Republican),
of the Canandaigua district, moved to ad
journ until next Monday night.
Senator Murphy (Democrat), of New
York, took tlie floor and declared that the
motion was made for the purpose ol' escaping
from a manage from the Governor.
cornering the republicans.
He was authorized to state that, the Gov
ernor was ready to withdraw the nomina
tions of Messrs. Baker and Rogers and send
in again the names of Messrs. Armstrong
and Buckbee to give tho Republicans a
chance to prove their sincerity and confirm
these nominations. This was the burden of
Mr. Murphy’s remarks, which he reiterated
for the purpose, npjiarontly, of consuming
Air. Comstock (Republican), of tlie Troy
district; briefly denied that tho Governor
entertained any sucli purpose. While he
was talking the Governor’s private secretary
appeared hastily on the scene at the rail.
Mr. Murphy called attention to his ap
pearance as proof of the truth of his asser
Col. Riee, the Governor’s private secre
tary, with the Sergeaut-at-Anns, then aji
peared before tlie bar and drew a message
from his pocket.
INSISTING ON THE ROLL CALL.
Mr. Raines took the floor and insisted
that the roll call for an adjournment, which
wasjlmlf finished (the Republicans voting in
the affirmative and the Democrats in the
UJJTiie Chair ruled him out of order.
Mr. Raines then proceeded to denounce
the course of the Lieutenant Governor as
arbitrary and revolutionary. At these
words the Lieutenant Governor began
jiounding with his gavel and the whole
chamber was in tumult.
Mr. Raines continued speaking but the
noise of the gavel was so great that his
voice was inaudible five fret away.
The Republican Senators shouted to Mr.
Raines to prons-d and tlie Democrats called
to Lieut. Gov. Jones to stand firm.
Col. Rice stood immovable during the uj>-
roar until Lieut. Gov. Jones sent his clerk
to his side.
THE MESSAGE RECEIVED.
The clerk took the message, the words of
Col. Ric-C; “I have the honor to transmit a
message from tlie Governor,” being clearly
audible above the din. Lieut. Gov. Jones
hold the message in his hand. 3lessrs. Pitts,
Vedder, Raines, Fassett and Hendricks, Re
publican Senators, began spoaking but no
words could be heard.
Reaching the message, to Deputy Clerk
Kenyon, Lieut. Gov. Jones directed him to
read it, but evidently fearing it would bo
seized he retained it, and himself began to
read the message. Hardly a word was
audible, as the Republican Senator* during
nearly the whole proceeding denounced the
act, rose to points of order and raised ob
jections, tlie Democrats meanwhile calling
on the Lieutenant Governor to proceed.
When the reading was concluded the Ro
jmblicans began explaining their votes.
3lr. Vedder, Rep., of the Chautauqua dis
trict, Raid: “I wish to say, anil I speak it in
the name of the free people of the State oi
New York, that I here in my place de
nounce tlie action taken by the presiding
officer of this Senate a* wholly unwarranted,
despotic and arbitrary, and an outrage ujxm
the [jeople of this State and up in the law,
and that it is a disgrace to any legislative
Tne President—Tho Senator is out of or
der and is not giving his reasons.
Mr. Vedder—l am giving my reasons. It
is the duty of the jieople of' the State of
Now York to prefer articles of imiieach
ment against tho presiding officer of this
Senate and to impeach him.
Mr. Murphy—You will liavo to go to the
assembly for that.
LEFT NO OTHER COURSE.I
Mr. Vedder—Certainly we will; but when
tho, power of the representatives of tlie
people of this State is thus usurped and
their rights denied them in tiiis desjiotie
way, we can do nothing else to maintain
our dignity than that; and tlie jieople will
demand it, and they will accept of nothing
short of that.
Mr. Pitts, of tho Rochester district, and
President of the Senate pro tern., said: “1
et very mu-h what hua taken place in
this chamber this morning. Wo had pro
ceeded to this time with such good feeling.
There had been such an evident desire on
the part of tho Chair to rule fairly and cour
teously, I say, that in the history of legisla
tive liodics no instance can is- found where,
upon calling the roll, a presiding officer ar
bitrarily and without any authority either
of law, parliamentary or otherwise, directed
that call to besuspended, and from hi* place
at the desk read a communication from any
State officer to that body.
• BELONGED TO THE SENATE.
“Tlie communication properly belongs to
the Senate in executive session. This is to
lie regretted. 1 regret it if I said anything
improper to my aws-iab s in tlie heat oi
debate, but I denounce the action of tin
presiding officer as arbitrary and illegal. It
shows that he is entirely unfit and uu
worthy to occupy the place to which he
was elevat 'd by the people. The action
which was suggi stl (impeachment) ought
to be taken. It ought to be a warning to
all men who are called ujxm to preside over
us that they should preserve the semblance
of fairness and courtesy to tlie body over
which they ore called to preside.

“We might have got along with this with
out any feeling wliateveror any contention,
and the executive would have been treated
entirely renpectfully. We can gain no ad

CONTENTS OF THE MESSAGE.
The Governor's message, which created
all the trouble, whs a mild protest to the
Senate against “hanging up” his nomina
tions for various offices instead of acting
upon them one way or another. The Gov
ernor closes his message as follows: “I

President Cleveland Said to Have De
St. Loris, April 22.—A special from
Washington to the Republican gives the fol
lowing rather startling information: “Presi
dent Cleveland neither wishes nor will ac
cept, a renomination.”
This will tie startling information to the
country,setting at rest the important question
of a second ter in,now the subject of interested
consideration in political circles every
where. The correspondent of the Republican
has tho highest possible authority for the
statement, however, and it can bo depended
upon ns strictly and entirely true. It comes
from the President himself, who made a
declaration to this effect, on Wednesday to a
prominent Democratic Senator from oue of
the Western States, who is on terms of es
pecial intimacy at the White House. The
President spoke with so much
deliberate earnestness and such stud
ied emphasis that tho Senator
with whom he was talking is certain there
is no reason to question his iiorfect and en
tire sincerity. Ilis manner, not less than
bis words, indicated that the declaration
was simply the decision of a firm resolution
which had resulted from careful considera
tion of all the phases of the matter. The
President said he had not given any intima
tion of his feelings to the representatives
of tho press for the simple reason that he
felt that nothing he might, say about not
wishing or being willing to take a second
term could lie believed. *1 hardly expect
anybody to believe it,’ he said,‘except my
wife, but it is so nonetheless.’ Continuing,
he added: ‘Everything I do, every
appointment I make, thev think it
is to secure re-election. On the contrary,
I am counting tho days that remain until
my release front office just as if 1 were a
prisoner in confinement.”

Offers More Room.
Washington, April 22. —The Apache In

their husbands at Fort Pickens. Capt.
Pratt, Superintendent of the Carlisle Indian
School, has gone to Fort Marion to select
thirty or forty young Indians before re
moval ti i lie inst ructsd at his institution. The
removal is made on account of tho crowded
condition of the quarters at Fort Marion,
and although the health of the Indians has
been good, it was thought advisable to send
them to a healthier location, where they
will have plenty of room ami lie free from

flock about them every time they appear in
Mount Vernon is considered as peculiarly
well adapted to their needs, lining situated in
the southwestern part of Alabama, on the
Mobile river, not far distant from Mobile,
and consisting of a tract of 200 acres. The
barracks there is occupied by two companies
of artillery. The Indians will live in tents
and it is hoped that they may lie taught to
become self-supporting. Gerouimo and
his renegades are not kept in solitary con
finement at Fort Pickens, but are required
to work under guard,
