ICopyrightl Copyright 1687 by the New York Associated
Berlin, Oct - . B.—Since Sig. Crispi re
ported to King Humbert the results of the
former’s conference with Prince Bismarck,
the King has exchanged personal saluta
tions with Emperor William and Emperor
Francis expressing his satisfaction at the
conclusion of the peace alliance. The press
continues to teem with surmises as to the
terms of the alliance, but nothing
authentic has transpired which con
tradicts the . arly announcement in
these dispatches regarding the conference.
Among the recent semi-official statements
worth noticing that of the Pesther-Lloyd
takes first place as a striking and sugges
tive declaration emanating from or inspired
hy the Austro-Hungarian foreign office.
The paper says: “The conferences between
Count Kalndky and Prince Bismarck and
Big. Crispi traveled over the whole
ground of international politics. It pro
vided for all eventualities not mere
ly generally, but down to details.
No territories were given away nor
conquests discussed, but an agreement
was concluded to prevent other’s from land
grabbing, and check aggrandizement by
conquest.” The article concludes with this
significant passage: “Italy, by joining
Austria and Germany, has won a prestige
never before in her possession, besides gain
ing the cei tainty that she will attain all the
territorial ends which she has in view, in
order to secure such extension in Europe
and other parts of the world as becomes a
great power.” The latter words obviously
contradict the preceding assurance that
no territories would be given away, and
imply that Italy has been promised com
pensation in the event of her sharing in a
A DEADLY MENACE TO RUSSIA.
Diplomatic circles credit the report that
if Austria obtains an extension to Slavonian,
Italy will be ceded the Italian Tyrol,
part of Istria, and if there is anew dispo
sition of the Turkish empire will also ac
quire Tripoli. As the aims of the alliance
develop, it becomes more and more appar
ent that it is a deadly menace to Russia.
In the official account of the interview be
tween Prince Bismarck and Sig. Crispi
it is stated that the latter said: “Italy has
every reason to dread the ail vance of Rus
sia to Constantinople. We cannot allow
the Mediterranean to become a Russian
These words which were quoted in the
North German Gazette were brought out
by Prince Bismarck, who informed Sig.
Crispi that the Czar meant to attack Con
stantinople at an early day if the neutral
powers remained neutral.
THE CZAR IN A RAGE.
Prince Bismarck, while declining to
pledge such neutrality, has answered Rus
sian intrigues by cementing the alliance of
the central power. Rig. Crispi’s phrase
about the Mediterranean applies equally to
France, debarring either an extension to
wards Tripoli or annexation of Morocco.
The disclosures of the Czar’s designs enraged
the Czar and created consternation in Rus
sia. The Russian Ministers, led by M.
Mieres, Minister of Foreign Affairs, have
sent heated denials to the Sultan, who has
responded by breaking up the negotiations
with Russia for mutual action in Bulgaria.
Among the first military movements re
sulting from the new triparttie alliance, the
Cologne Gazette announces that Austria
will raise her effective troops in Bosnia
from 8,000 to 10,000 men. It
is reported also that Austria
is trying to secure a convention with Servia
to permit of the passage of troops to Bul
garia and the use of the railway into Tur
key. Clearlv the alliance does not give full
assurance of peace, of which the official
The confidence of the Bourse in these as
surances has already become weaker. The
declarations of the ftussian government
organs to the effect that Russia must vindi
cate her supreme right to control Bulgaria
effected dealings to-day, causing a relapse
in Russian securities of % percent, and a
proportionate decline in St. Petersburg ex
change and roubles.
The tariff troubles with Russia also tend
to inci ease the difficulty. Moscow advices
are to those engaged in commerce that the
government has definitely resolved to raise
the customs tariff on Jan. 1.
The social war against the Germans resi
dent in Russia still continues. An edict has
been issued in St. Petersburg ordering in
stant application of the prohibition of the
uss of the German language in the schools,
universities and leading gymnasia. Riga,
Bevel, Fellin and Goldinger, which have
hitherto escaped the Russian organization,
are now warned that an immediate change
in their system of tuition must take place.
A majority of the German teach era will be
obliged to cross the frontier.
ST. gall’s socialist rally.
Thp Socialist congress at St. Gall failed
to accomplish its main objects—reorganize
nf the party and concert of electoral tactics.
Though the congress repudiated the identity
of the Socialists ns Anarchists, a number of
speakers strongly sympathized with the An
archists’ aims and methods, and denounced
the Socialist members of the Reichstag for
failing to uphold the banner of revolution.
Even their trusted chiefs, Bebel,
Ecibknecht and Hazenolever, were
criticised as wanting in the thoroughness
and militant spirit essential to the success
of the movement. The English Socialist,
Belfort Baek and Herr. Adler, of Vienna, at
tended the Congress. A groat majority of
the delegates approved of the reconstruc
tion of the platform by widening and de
fining the social and political aims of the
party. The programme, when drafted, will
be submitted to a committee of delegates,
including Auer, Grtleubergcr, Back, Hazen
dever, Singer, Bebel, Liebkneeht, ICayser,
and Meister. The Socialists residing in
l aris affirmed tho necessity of the solidity
of the party, on'questions of internal politics,

ought to denounce openly the annexation of

The trial of Anarchist Neve has been con

yesterday spoke for an hour in his
defense. He declared that he was

Brussels, Oct. B. —Le Nort, the Russian

cent conference at Friedrichsruhe between
Prince Bismarck and Sig. Crispi, the Ital

that no European alliance can compensate

part of Russia. Sig. Crispi, it will be
found, has been treated very courteously,
but has received recommendation of pru

London, Oct. 8. —Two hundred of the
poor homeless unemployed persons who
sleep at night in Trafalgar Square, to-day
paraded in a body through the principal
streets in the West End. They carried a
black banner, bearing in white letters the
inscription: “We will have work or bread.”
A large force of police, mounted and on
foot, accompanied the procession, which
eventually returned to Trafalgar
Square, and, with the followers
attracted, held a meeting. The orators
who addressed this assemblage, described
the hardship of the lot of those whose only
resting-place in London at night is a public
square, and declared that the only means
they have of drawing the attention of the
public to their condition was by such
demonstrations as they had just made.
The meeting adopted a resolution to reas

GOTHAM’S CHOLERA SHIP.
Health Officer Smith Makes a Report
on the Subject.
New York, Oct. 8. —Health Officer
Smith has prepared a brief report of the
cholera cases that were thrust upon his
hands by the steamship Alesia, from Na
ples. It states that the disease has been
very virulent and rapid in its fatality in a
majority of cases. In several instances pa
tients were well at one inspection, and nearly
pulseless twelve hours later. The report
also tells how the ship was fumigated.
It was thoroughly washed with
boiling water twice, and after
ward with a solution of corrosive
sublimate, two parts to one thousand of
water. All the clothing and textile fabrics
were soaked in boiling water for hours and
one hundred pounds of sulphur was twice
burned in the hold. Of the eight cases re
moved from the ship on her arrival five
died and three recovered. Of those which
have developed since removal to quaran
tine, nine died, four recovered, five are
convalescent and the remaining two are
seriously ill. Dr. Smith thinks the infec
tion is now entirely destroyed.
THE CAPTAIN ARRESTED.
Surveyor Beattie has preferred charges
against Capt. Vallet, of the steamship
Alesia, which arrived here from Naples two
weeks ago with cholera on board. It is
alleged that the captain did not provide
proper hospitals for bis passengers, that he
failed to provide tables and seats for his
steerage passengers, and that in his
manifest of passengers ho did not give the
cause of the death of passengers who died
on the passage. Capt. Vallet was arraigned
before Commissioner Shields, and held in
£5,000 for the grand jury.
A cable dispatch from Meridia, Mexico,
says that port has been closed against the
United States on account of the ‘'epidemic
of cholera in New York.” No additional
deaths were reported to the quarantine
commissioners to-day. The agents of the
Alesia say that her misfortune has a dis
couraging effect on Italian emigration to

GARRETT MAY FIGHT.
The Telegraph Deal May Not be Finally
Settled After All.
New York, Oct. 8. —The statement in a
morning paper to the effect that Robert
Garrett, referring to the absorption of the
Baltimore and Oliio telegraph lines l>y the
Western Union Company, said “It's no
trade, gentlemen,” caused considerable talk
to-day, but no excitement. Western Union
went off a point, but that was not attributed
to Mr. Garrett’s alleged denial of the Side.
George Gould treated the story laughingly.
He did not beliovo that Mr. Garrett was
correctly reported. He said: “Although
the collateral has not been turned
over, tho agreement has been
signed and is in our possession.
There is no Baltimore and Ohio telegraph
now, as their wires are ft part, of our system ”
Jay Gould also denied the statement, in
the same article that tho Baltimore and
Ohio owed Mr. Garrett personally between
$8,000,000 and $4,000,000. Mr. Garrett still
refuses to see reporters or to say whether
the big telegraph iloal has boon legally com

is in a rage, and that the fighting spirit of
his father is now on top.

of thousands of persons gave a hearty wel
come to the champion. At 8 o'clock the
dories in the procession formed in a circle
about the Volunteer, while the band played
“Hail to the Chief!”
For a full hour colored fires were burned
around the Volunteer, and a beautiful dis
play of pyrotechnics was made from one end
of the harbor side to the other. On
the shore line fully two miles
in length of fire of all
colors burned while the band played
national airs. At 0 o'clock the harbor dis
play was over and after three times three

CLEVELAND AN ANGLER.
THE SCENERY ON THE LAKE VERY
A Rain Storm Compels the Party to
Take Shelter in a Neighboring Club
House—A Dinner Given by Gen.
Vilas at His Homo in the Evening.
Madison, Wis., Oct. B.—lt was good
fishing weather to-day, and the President
and his companions went fishing on I ji!;o
Medota. A steam launch conveyed them to
an island in the lake, whence they went to
the fishing grounds in small boats.
The President’s fishing part y returned at
(i o'clock to-night. They had excellent luck,
and brought back between thirty and forty
good-sized fish as trophies. They were car
ried by the steamer al>out four miles up the
lake to Maple BlulT, where they took small
boats, and each member of the party had
an oarsman to himself. They reached
the fishing ground, and had been
fishiug over an hour, when a high wind
arose and made it dangerous to remain out
longer, so they sought shelter at the Magnus
Rex Club house, near by, where four mem
bers of the club welcomed them and enter
tained them at a fine lunch. The club house,
though a small, unpretentious wooden
structure, was elaborately decorated with
evergreens and otherwise.
OUT IN THE RAIN.
Bv the time lunch was over the wind had
subsided, though a light rain had set in,
which lasted all day. The party, clad in
waterproof garments, betook themselves
again to the rowboats ami continued their
sport until early dark. The President
caught eight black bass, two of the largest
weighing respectively four and a quarter
and four and a half poiuids. These were
the heaviest fish caught. The total catch
was twenty-one black bass, thirteen pickerel
and a few white bass and perch.
The President lisiiisl for black bass alone,
and Bill Dunn, his oarsman, and a local an
thority on fishing matters, declares with
emphasis that lie (the President) certainly
dcx's know how to handle the rod. The
President says he enjoyed the day immense
ly, and his admiration for the scenery of
Luke Mendota is boundless. The Prosi
dential party dined this evening with
Col. Vilas, Prof. Chamberlain, Presi
dent of the Wisconsin University,
and wife, Cos!. Knight and wife, and
It. J. Stevens and wife, of Madison, iieing
invited to meet them. A public reception
was given by the President and Mrs. Cleve
land, at the Vilas mansion, lietweon 9 and
11 o’clock this evening, to the citizens of
Madison. It has already boon stated that
Postmaster General and Mrs. Vilas would
join the Presidential party here, but the
matter was not definitely determined until
to-day. They have now accepted the Presi
dent’s invitation, and will accompany him
during the remainder of the journey.
The Treasury Gets Less Than it
Wanted by $623,150.
Washington, Oct. B.—The amount of
bonds offered to the government to-day
was $273,700, of which $262,800 ware -D o'
per cents, and $11,400 4 per cents. This
makes the total to date $10,870,850, which is
$028,150 less than the amount which the
Treasury Department offered to purchase
for the sinking fund within the period
which expired to-day. Secretary Fairchild
was asked this afternoon whether he would
purchase any more bonds, but declined
mat emphatically to define his
policy on the subject. It is
not regarded as likely, however,
that any radical action will le taken unless
some unlooked for change in the money
market should demand it. The time for the
purchase of bonds for the sinking fund will
not be extended. It is explained at the de
partment that while the .Secretary offered
to buy $14,000,000 worth of bonds for this
fund, it is yet an unsettled question whether
that entire sum is needed, and whether the
amount already obtained will not meet the
full requirements of the law.
Applications for prepayment of interest
were received to-day on bonds amounting to

New York, Oct. 8. —Over 2,000 brass
workers of this city and Brooklyn were
locked out to-day because they would not
relinquish the Saturday half-holiday.
Notices were jiosted in the factories owned
by the members of the Chandelier Manu
facturers’ Association, notifying the em
ployes that they would be closed last night.
Throe factories not in tho association have
granted the half-holiday, and their men
were at work this morning. The locked-out
men are confident of winning in the fight.
Most of them are Knights of Labor, and
they say they are glad the issue has been
made, while the General Assembly is in
convention, as assistance from that body
will doubtless lie ordered. They say they
will also receive help from the building
trades, which will caution its members not
to handle goods made by the firms of the
association. Some of the brassworkers left
the Knights of Lalior a short time ago on
account of the tyrannical rule of District
Printers to Strike.
New York, Oct. B.—The Tribune to
morrow will say: "The book and job com
positors who belong to Typographical Union
No. 6 have decided to strike Monday at
noon. The employing printers have granted
the demand for an increase of wages, imt
have strenuously refused to make their com
posing rooms card office*. On Thursday at
a meeting where represent!ves of ever fifty
printing houses were present resolutions
were adopted taking this stand.”

Wheeler’s Insolvent Estate.
New Haven, Oct. B.—An examination of
the detailed report of Gen. Merwin, trustee
of tlie insolvent estate of E. H. Wheeler,
effectually kills any lingering hope the
creditors may have bad in Wheeler’s state
ment that the estate would jay dollar

boa very Imd one. The prospects
are that the estate will lie in the courts for
a long time, and that the creditors of the
New Haven Wire Company, will not re

FIDELITY BANK FIGURES.
Half of the $5,800,000 in Assets
Classed as Worthless.
Washington, Oct. 6. —The Comptroller
of the Currency has received tho report of
Receiver Armstrong, of tho bankrupt
Fidelity Rank, of Cincinnati. The report
has been delayed because of the condition
of the bank's accounts. The schedules
place tho nominnl value of the assets at
upwards of #5,800,000, of which more
than one half are classed as worth
less or doubtful. The apiiarently
valid claims upon the bunk are
about $.'1,800,000, while there are amounts
in dispute aggregating nearly $1,600,000.
The subscriptions to tho increase of the cap
ital stock, amount to $1,100,000, but less
than half this amount was paid in money,
and even if what was so paid should lie
finally adjudged to constitute the liability
of the receivership, it will lx* nearly nil off
set. bv assessments on tho original stock.
The liabilities to depositors are about #BOO,-
000, of which a little over SOOO,OOO appeal's
to bo hold locally.
RANKS AN!) BANKERS.
Ranks and bankers appear as the creditors
for more than $.800,000, but some changes
may be made in these figures. On account,
of tho doubtful value of the assets and the
large claims in dispute it is impossible at,
present to make an estimate of what divi
dends may be paid ultimately. The uash in
hand and the amount of assets undoubtedly
good at present give a dividend of
35 per cent,, and the receiver has Ixien in
structed to prepare checks and schedules at
once. Claims amounting to less than one
half of the apparent liabilities of the bank
have been proved under three months’ no
tice to creditors in accordance with the
provisions of section 5325 of the Revised
Statutes of the United States, and of course
unproved claims must now await attention
until after the first dividend.

Unusual Lightness in the Staple Re
ported by Several States.
New Orleans, Oct. 8. —The Cotton
World's report of the crop for the month of
September says: -
The prominent feature of the last month has
lieeu the almost unbroken continuation of dry,
warm weather, over pretty much the entire
bolt, forcing the fruit to maturity, and enabling
the rapid gathering of tho staple, and at the
same time destroying, except in a few se.'ii ms,
any prospect for a crop. As the result ot
such conditions the quality of the prod
net grades high, though in l'Kiali
ties there is some complaint of recent
heavy rains damaging cotton, and in others of
depredations by worms. Many of our corre
spondents allude to the unusual lightness of the
staple and the difficulty of milking the usual
weight of bales. The two t'arolinas and .Ma
nama have held up well, while in Mississippi
also, the preponderance of reports indicate an
improved yield over last year. Other States
shows greater depreciation from last month.
