PEPEW TALKING IN PARIS
A TALK ABOUT DIVERS MATTERS
WITH A PARIS REPORTER.
The Penalty of Talking Back to Ger
man Railway Officials—French and
German Soldiers - The Prince of
From the New York Sun.
Paris, Sept. JO. —“I will illustrate the
autocratic character of European govern
ment railway management by two inci
dents which 1 know to be authentic,” said
Mr. Chauncey M. Depew, the other day, as
he sat in his parlor at the Hotel d’Albe on
the Champs Elysees. “A party of Ameri
can students, traveling through Germany,
reached the station just as their train was
starting. An official called out to them not
to attempt getting on; but, as the cars were
moving slowly, they paid no attention to
his caution and stepped aboard. The result
was that at the next stop they were met by
a guard of soldiers, and all marched off
•‘At first the young Amerieans treated
the whole affair as a huge joke, and in
quired with mock seriousness when the trial
would come off. But they changed their
tone on being informed that, having de
liberately violated an ordinance of the Ger
man empire, they had lieen already tried,
convicted, and sentenced to thirty days’ im
prisonment. In fact, lie fore they realized
the gravity of their situation, they were
behind iron bars in the city jail, and it re
quired the influence of the American Lega
tion at Berlin, together with the most
humiliating apologies on their own parts, to
effect their release
‘‘A friend of mind was the hero of the
other incident, which happened at the
Frankfort depot. He was about to enter a
compartment, where several seats were
vacant, when he distinctly saw one of the
gentlemen inside slip a gold piece into the
hand of the guard, who immediately de
clared that the compartment was ‘reserved,’
and that no one else could ride in it. My
friend was so angry that he at once accused
the fellow of having received a bribe, and,
on the charge being denied, he added,
with American directness, that the guard
was ‘a liar and a thief.’ The train moved
off. my friend being forced to find another
seat. At the first station he was arrested
for having insulted a government official,
and finally, after a great deal of trouble,
followed a lawyer’s advice, made a full
apology, payed all the costs and a heavy
fine, and left the country in disgust. Just
imagine, if you can, such a thing happen -
ing in the United States!
“You ask me what I think of the present
political situation in France. Of course I
have been in the country too short a time
to express an opinion as to details, but I
have seen with immeasurable surprise the
hysterical condition into which the whole
country was thrown by this Boulanger
‘boom. The symptoms of disease shown
then were grave enough to disturb the faith
of any one in the stability of the French
republic. It seemed four or five months ago
as if the people were quite ready for a coup
d'etat, in the name of the idolized ‘baker.’
But he was not great enough or brave
enough to take the tide of favor at its flood,
and now has sunk back to comparative in
significance. However, when the war
breaks out for the recovery of Alsace and
J/orraiue, Boulanger’s chance may come
again. If Germany wins the first battle,
the French people will rise up as one man,
with overwhelming enthusiasm, call back
their banished hero, and charge him to lead
the armies of France.
“Do 1 think the French soldier the equal
of his German rival? That is a difficult
question to answer. I know that it is cus
tomary to laugh at the French troops as
being undersized, badly dressed, poorly offl
i-erea, etc.; and certainly, in point of ex
ternal appearance, the German soldier
seems to me the ideal of a perfect fighting
machine. They are such large, fine-looking
fellows, and so splendidly disciplined, that
the average tourist at once decides in then
favor. But there is another side to the
question. I have heard one of our United
States army officers speak in the very high
est terms of the French army, maintaining
that there is no soldier on the face of the
earth like a well-trained Gaul. He claims
that the little Frenchman, with his
fine nervous organization, his wiry, sinewy
frame, his dash, his enthusiasm, and his Bo
hemian habits, is vastly better prepared to
endure the hardships of a fierce campaign,
to march and without proper food and
sleep, than is tne German. Certainly, in
our own civil war it was demonstrated over
and over again that the slender city clerk,
who would often dance all mgnt and write
all day, couid'outfight the rugged farmer’s
hoy who had always lived out of doors, and
had seen the sun rise every morning of his
life. But, notwithstanding the opinion of
my military friend, the German army is
the most perfect and magnificent machine I
“You ask me if I have anything to say
about England. Well, my impressions of
the Prince of Wales may be of interest,- I
had the honor of dining and lunching with
his royal highness, and was impressed with
the fact that the Prince was one of the best
informed Englishmen, particularly on
American affairs, that I ever met. He
takes the most lively and sincere interest in
all that goes on in the United States, and
is very earnest in the desire that the rela
tions between the two countries he cordial
“In conversation, the Prince of Wales has
a way of almost cross-examining the person
with whom he is talking, which enables him
to gain an immense amount of information
that he could not obtain in any other man
ner. I found him quite familiar with the
names of our various public men, with what
they have done and are doing, and he
showed, by his questions, a piX'found under
standing of our political situation.
“Although, as I said, the Prince has in
conversation this way of cross-examination,
it is not dot done at all offensively; in fact,
he is a consummate master of the art of
making every man appear at his
best by encouraging him to speak on sub
jects that are familiar to him. He possesses
another art. too. w hich is one of the rarest
and most essential of public gifts, that of
paying those he has met the honor of re
membering them. Notwithstanding the
thousands of persons who are presented to
him every year, the Prince of Wales never
fails to recognize a single one of them on a
future occasion, and will often even show
by some delicate allusion that he recalls the
circumstances of the first meeting.
“Some people talk a great deal about the
establishment of a republic in England, but
1 am of the opinion that the cause oc mon
archy will lie strengthened when the Prince
of W ales comes to the throne. He possesses
the popular instinct to a high degree, and
on listening to a speech which he made in
lziridon, 1 was astonished at the vigorous
directness of his style. He showed a great
familiarity with the public needs and a deep
concern in providing for them. Indeed, 1
thought that he spoke very much like an
American. On the whole, the Prince struck
inn as a man of wonderful tact, knowing
just, what to do and what not to do, and, in
the difficult position which lie has had to
fill, the future King has certainly succeeded
in winning the enthusiastic regard of the
“ As regards English hospitality, I cannot
s pcak in high enough terras. Englishmen
may be cold, indifferent, or perhaps even
rude in their treatment of t Grangers, but as
soon as it is known that you are worthy of
their friendship no welcome can lie more
cordial than that which they give you at
“One of the ablest and most interesting
men whom 1 met during my stay in London
"as Lord W olseley. Speaking of our late
"ar, he said that, as is customary in such
cases, England sent a number of officers
n yer to the United States, one-half
n f whom served with the Union army,
"nd the others with the Houth, the idea
l|eing, of course, that they would in
this way acquire a larger amount of useful
knowledge than if all had gone with one
army. Well, the point that Gen. Wolselev
made was that, although they left England
without any special prejudice one way or
the other, they all came back fully con
vinced of two things: first, that the United
Stall's possessed wonderful military
strength; and, secondly, that the side oh
which they had fought'was in the right, and
had the best led army. As both armies
were composed of Americans, the compli
ment was complete.”
BULLETS FOR BANK BURGLARS.
A Bold Attempt to Rob Defeated by a
Plucky Cashier. *
Special to tlic New York World.
Wilmington, Del., Sept. 30.—The bold
est bank robbery ever attempted in Dela
ware occurred about 2 o'clock flits morning
at the Farmers’ Bank, in the town of New
Castle, a place of 3,000 inhabitants, five
miles from this city. The building com
prises the bank and cashier’s residence, and
has a small yard in front guarded by a light
iron railing. The lmnk occupies the corner
room on the first floor with a parlor oppo
site, and sitting room and kitchen to the
rear. On the second floor ore four bed
rooms located on each side of the hallway,
which is about six feet wide.
The front room on the right was occupied
by Richard G. Cooper, cashier of the bank,
and wife, and the room in the rear of this
by two of his daughters. The front room
on the left of the hallway was occupied
last night by William J. Black, brother-in
law of Cashier Cooper, and a brother-in-law
of Senator Gray, and the room in the rear
of Misa Mary Cooper, daughter of
It was on this floor that exciting events
occurred. There were four burglars. Three
of them entered the building, while a fourth
kept watch on the outside. They stole a
ladder from a neighboring yard, and three
of them clambered up to the second story
and entered Mr. Black’s room first. He was
awakened by the noise, and turned over in
time to see a man entering the window. Mr.
Black gave a scream and started to leave
the room, bnt was at once covered by a re
volver and told to keep quiet” His
feet were tied together and his
head enveloped in bed-clothes. One of
the men then went out into the hallway,
while the other remained in charge of Mr.
Black. Cashier Cooper had lieen aroused
by Mr. Black’s scream. He provided him
self with a big revolver, which lay on his
mantel, and had not been used for live
years. He went first, to his daughter’s room
and found everything all right. He then
heard subdued voices in Air. Black’s room,
but thought that the latter had received an
unexpected visit from a friend, and he re
turned to his wife’s room to seek an expla
nation if possible. He then heard a com
motion in the hallway, where one of the
burglars tried to enter the room of his other
daughter, which was immediately back of
Air. Black’s. She had opened the door to
learn the cause of the noise, when the bur
glar made a dash for her, but she shut and
locked ths door in his face.
The bold thief then threw his weight
against the door and burst it open. Mr.
Cooper just then emerged from his
room. The thief, who carried a bull’s eye
lantern, levelled a revolver at his breast
and commanded: “Don’t speak!"
“I won’t.” replied Mr. Cooper, and at the
same instant he raised bis revolver rapidly
and tired directly in the burglar’s face. The
thief replied with a shot which missed Mr.
and grazod the face of his wife,
who stood back of him. Air. Cooper fired
a second shot, which missed. The wounded
burglar and his two companions then re
treated hastily through the open window.
As the former passed through Air. Black’s
room he fired a shot at the man lying help
less on the bed, but the bullet imbedded it
self in the bed. The wounded thief, as he
left the room, staggered as though faint
from his injury. He left pools of blood and
the bloody imprint of his hand on the wall
where he leaned for support for a moment
The wounded man could be traced by his
blood as far as the river, where it is prob
able he fell overboard or committed suicide.
No boat was seen in the vicinity, and no
trace of his companions could be found, but
there is every reason to believe that he was
shot in the mouth, as a piece of flesh resem
bling a human tongue was found on the
window-sill by which he escaped. A Derby
hat belonging to the injured burglar, a
mask made out of a piece of white muslin
with holes for the eyes and nose, and a kit
of burglars' tools which was abandoned by
the barglars in their hasty retreat were
found in the vicinity.
A Cannibal Mansion.
From “Pioneering in New Guinea."
There are two large posts in front, 80 feet
high, on which rests the large peaked shade,
around which there hangs a graceful fringe
of young sage leaf. The front is about 30
feet wide, and the whole length of the house
is about 1(30 feet, tapering gradually down
to the back, where it is small. Our com
partment is about 30 feet high and 10 broad.
The front is a common platform floored
with the outer skin of the sago palm, and
kept beautifully clean. The whole is dir
vided into courts, with divisions of cocoa
nut leaves, 0 feet high, on which hang va
rious figures, not at all good-looking. From
the top to the cocoanut leaves hang grace
ful curtains of the young frond of the sago
palm. Standing on the platform in front
and looking down the whole length along
the passage or hall, with various divisions
and their curtains, it has a wonderful effect.
In each of the courts are numerous skulls
of men, women and children, crocodiles and
bears, also many breasts of the cassowary.
All are carved and many painted. The
human skulls are of those who have been
killed and eaten. The daintiest dish here is
man, and it is considered that only fools re
fuse and despise it. In the last court there
are the same kinds of ornaments, and then
a screen with curiously formed things of
wood and native cloth hanging on it; also
sibis (their only clothing), belts, small bags
and other things belonging to those
murdered, which have been presented to the
New and Terrible Explosives.
Fran i the London limes.
There is no end to the perfectly diabolical
competition of the military powers of Eu
rope in the discovery of new chemical agents
for the destruction of mankind. It is re
fiorted that the Russian Minister for War
las just concluded a series of ex|teriments of
anew explosive compound which bids fair
to outdo the qualities of melinite, roburite,
and all other explosives whatever in its ap
plication to all the present uses of gunpow
der. This new and murderous composition is
destined, say many persons, to revolutionize
the exist ing system of ammunition. The
new explosive is the discovery of a
Russian engineer, and has bepn christened
Slectover. Its strength is equal to
that of pyroxyline, and lias the immense
advantage of being ten times chcajier t ban
ordinary villainous saltpetre. Another
great superiority which it possesses over all
the known explosives of the dynamite class
is that when fired its force does not strike
downward, but entirely in a forward direc
tion, so that it can be used for all the pur
poses of cannon and musket charges to
which ordinary gunpowder is now applied,
without any damage whatever to the wea
pon from which it is discharged. It is
stated, in fact-, that ball cartridges loaded
with it have lieen fired out of cardboard
barrels as a test without the least injury
to the latter. So satisfactory, indeed, have
been the experiments that it is reported the
Alinister of War is about to have a special
factory built for its manufacture. The
composition of the new compound is, of
course, a deep secret.
The Richest Man in the World
would be poor without health. The dying
millionaire consumptive would exchange all
he is worth for anew lease of life. He
could have had it for a song had he used Dr.
Fierce’s “Golden Aledical Discovery" beforo
the disease had reached its last stages.
This wonderful preparation is a positive
cure for consumption if taken in time. For
all diseases of the throat and lung* it is un
eaualed. All druggists.
