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 Wales—W olseley. 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 under arrest. •‘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 ever saw. “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 and harmonious. “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 English people. “ 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 their homes. “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 the cashier. 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 gods- 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. THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1887.
