NOT TO MEET.
An Interview is Considered a Waste of
Time and Would be Unpleasant for
Both Parties- Each Country Making
Hostile Military Demonstrations and
(Copyright 1887 by the New York Associated
Bf.iu.in, Oct. 23.— The Official Press in
repeating its denial of the report that the
Czar was to have a meeting with Emperor
William, uses language of plain and almost
ostentatious enmity toward Russia. An in
terview is declared to he not a mere matter
of indifference, but is objected to by high
personages in Germany. The personal re
lations between the Czar and Emperor Wil
liam, once so important a factor in European
politics, can no longer continue on their old
footing of friendship as the position of
Germany toward her allies, Austria and
Italy, forbids it. The anti-German pro
clivities of the present Czar are contrasted
with the lifelong friendship of his father
for Emperor William and his people, and
the conclusion is drawn that an interview
would be unpleasant to both sides.
OTHEII EVIDENCE OF FRICTION'.
Besides these strongly suggestive com
ments there is increasing evidence of
strained relations between Berlin and St.
Petersburg. The Russian press censor per
mitted yesterday’s Navoe Vremya to pre
dict such early action by Russia in Bulgaria
as would defeat the objects of the triple al
liance, *and show that Russia is neither
isolated nor incapable of carrying out
her victorious policy. The Pan-Slavist
papers are having free play in denouncing
Germany. The Czar’s route for returning
to Russia is subject daily to surmise as it is
considered unadvisable that he touch Ger
man soil and the frozen Baltic may make
his way homeward a matter of limited
choice. ‘Yesterday the route fixed was Riga
or Libau if the ice blocked Cronstadt. Any
way it is declared that the Czar must not
pass through Germany.
The economic war between Russia and
(Germany has had fresh development in the
Czar’s ukase giving English and French
imports preference rates. English goods ob
taining a remission of 20 per cent, because
England levies no duty on Russian corn
ana French goods a 10 per cent, rebate be
cause of the limited duty levied by France
on Russian corn. The obvious aim of the
edict is to strike a blow at German trade.
To these evidences of hostilities are now
Htlded increased military preparations on
the frontier. A nvtable cessation occurred
in this work a>•*•>„' the progress of the
negotiations between ’ Prince Bismarck and
Prince DeGiers for an entente on the East
ern question, but since the triple alliance
became known there has been feverish ac
celerations ol the work on the fortifications
st Warsaw, Ivan, Garod, Brest and Lilo
visk. Gen. Gourko is to organize an im
mense camp near Warsaw. New fortifica
tions are also being constructed around Ka
vono and Bielastok. Some activity is
noticeable along the Austrian frontier.
The German War Office responds by
enlarging the camp at Grandenz. construct
ing six new forts around Thorn and
strengthening the works at Posen, Golgna,
Pillan and Konigsberg. The energies of
the War Office are at present concentrated
on the eastern frontier.
Regarding Prince Bismarck’s reply to the
new prohibition of German trade, it will be
seen immediately upon the meeting of the
Reichstag tba, in the bill raising the duties
an corn the attack is to be resumed.
Russian securities have again been offered
indiscriminately for sale. The present re
mit, of this tension of the relations is an
increased bitterness and enmity between
Lie two peoples. The Russian press prophe
i ies that important diplomatic action will
be taken by the Czar’s government soon
after his return to Moscow. These menaces,
however, do not alarm Germany, which is
confident of her own strength and the se
curity of the triple alliance.
AN AMBIGUOUS, COMMUNIQUE.
An ambiguous offidal communique com
ing from Moscow to-night, is giving rise to
various surmises as to the Czar’s designs.
Count Laursdorff, director of the Czar’s
diplomatic bureau, who has just returned
from Copenhagen, brought an utterance
from the Czar which, as given to
the press, is that “An immediate
solution of the Bulgarian crisis
should be found.’’ Not a word more isoom
municated to explain the act. Well in
formed officials regard the utterance ns a
pacific one, and it is supposed to point to
some new diplomatic scheme for a settle
ment of the Bulgarian question.

•fee and Italy has not prospered. Advices

I’riuce Bismarck intimated to the Vatican
that he was authorized to inform the Holy
Bee what concessions the Italian government
was disposed to off er. At the same time
f’rinee Bismarck declined to be responsible
for the conduct officially of the
negotiations, aud merely offered
to be a friendly medium. The
Vatican’s reply was a query whether Italy
would acknowledge the absolute inde
pendence of the Holy See with the restitu
tion of part of Rome ns the Pojie’.s sine nun
non. Sig. Crispi did not entertain these
terms, and Prince Bismarck’s action in the
meantime has cooled.
Anew cause for a fierce quarrel lias
arisen in the law abolishing the Polish
language in the schools in the Polish
speaking provinces of Posen, West
Prussia and Silesia. The Catholic
press declares that the clergy will not obey
the law, and that they cannot share in a
campaign against the' national language In

CHURCHILL AT NEWCASTLE).
He Severely Criticizes Gladstone’silrish
London, Oct. 22. Lord Randolph
Churchill, speaking at Newcastle to-day,
declared that Gladstone’s proposals regard
ing Ireland, as they now stood, meant the
breaking up of the union and the ruin of
the empire. Ho denied that the govern
ment had lightly adopted coercion. They
had tried to rule Ireland by the ordinary
law until the plan of campaign ren
dered this impossible. The plan of
campaign, he said, was exactly similar to
the “no rent” manifesto, which had been
Mr. Gladstone's justification for coercion.
Lord Randolph ridiculed the idea that the
Parnellites had changed their methods and
aims. Mr. Gladstone ought to la? the last to
denounce the Irish police, for they had got
at loggerheads with the people in carrying
out repeated Gladstone coercion acts. If
political changes were henceforth to be
effected by public disturbance and defiance
of the law, England's prosperity would
POLITICS IN FRANCE.
Clemenceau Saya the Electors are All
Paris, Oct. 22. —M. Clemencau, in a
speech to the electors of Toulon, said that
the present political situation resulted from
a general confusion of ideas. Every Cabinet
since that of Dufaures, he said, had pursued
the same policy, and had broken its prom
ises. He declared that he would remain
immovable, and would only support a gov
ernment which introduced serious reforms.
He said that union among the Republicans
in home and foreign affairs was more neces
sary than ever. The condition of Europe
was everywhere one of disquiet and uncer
tainty. Referring to the interview between
Big. Crispi, the Italian Prime Minister,
and Prince Bismarck at Freidrichsrube, M.
Clemencau said that when the two states
men met and conferred the nations asked
who would bear tbo cost of their agreement
and what rights would be violated. The
meeting at which M. Clemencau spoke was
a noisy one. No resolutions were adopted.
MEXICO WON’T MITIGATE.
Tho Leaders in the Nogales Affair
Will be Shot.
El Paso, Tex., Oct. 22.—The Mexican
officers who were concerned in the Nogales
outrage last spring, and were sentenced to
be shot by the judgment of the special
court martial, have been confined in jail
since then, pending an appeal for mitigation
of punishment, which was strongly indorsed
by the State Department of the United
States government. The punishment was
deemed too severe, and a lengthy
correspondence has taken place between the
two governments in regard to the matter.
The two officers are Col. Francisco Ar
vigus and Lieut Guttierrez. It now trans
pires that the appeals for mercy have been
ineffectual, and that the sentence of the
court martial will after ali be put into
execution. The day has not yet been set,
but an order in the premises is expected
from the War Department in the City of
Mexico at any hour.
Vitriol, Boiling Tar and Red-Hot Iron

Dublin, Oct. 22. —An attempt was made
to evict a widow named Foley from her
house at Ballykerogue, county Wexford,

The Party Greeted With no Demon
* stration on Its Return.
Washington, Oct. 22. —Everybody on
the Presidential special was up at sunrise
this morning. Toilets were rather hastily
made. Coffee was served just as the God
dess of Liberty that crown* the dome of the
capitol came into view. Good-byes were
said, and at the appointed time to the
minute, 6:40 o’clock, the train came to a
stop at Washington. The President was
heartily glad to get home, though as
heartily glad that he went away. During
the three weeks of his journeying he had
traveled 4,500 miles passed through seven
teen States, crossing three of them twice,
and had seen and been seen by (variously
estimated bv different members of the
party) at from 1,000,000 to 5,000,000 of
a quiet entry.
There were no brass bands, no committee
men and no crowds at the station here, and
it is nothing uncomplimentary to the people
whom the President has visited to say that
every one of the tourists was glad of it.
President and Mrs. Cleveland and Col. La
ment entered the carriage and went to the
White House. Postmaster General and
Mrs. Vilas were driven to their home. Dr.
Bryant and Mr. Bissel went to breakfast with
the President, after which they took trains
respectively for New York city and Buffalo.
The artist arid two journalists went their
several ways. The Pullman cars were un
coupled for the first time in three weeks,

morning and then drove out to their coun

There Were Any Deaths or Not—
Jacksonville and Other Cities Raise
the Quarantine Against Palatka
Hillsborough County, of Course,
Tampa, Fla., Oct. 22.—Twenty-three
new cases of yellow fever have developed
in the past twenty-four hours, but no deaths
have occurred. The weather is cool. Four
cases are considered critical. The Mayor’s
appeal for aid, while considered unnecessary
by many, is being responded to liberally.
RAISING THE QUARANTINE.
Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 33. Dr.
Mitchell lias just returned from Toeoi,
where he had an interview with the Putnam
county health board, all being very satis
factory. The board ordered the quarantine
against Palatka off, taking effect to-mor
row. All the other counties were notified
of this action and they will follow suit.
Ocala and Leesburg have ordered theirs
ended in the morning.
The committee who had charge of the
fund raised for the Charleston sufferers held
a meeting this forenoon. There was $393 89
on hand yet of that fund and they decided
to send S2OO of it at once to Tampa, and the
chairman was empowered to send the
balance if it was needed. President Cole
man, of the Jacksonville. Tampa and Key
West railway, gave SSOO as the road’s con
tribution to the fund. Theodore Hudnutt,
of Terre Haute, has sent SIOO for the suf
ferers. Jacksonville has raised SI,OOO and
will increase that figure. The Board of
Health had a meeting this morning, but no
particular business was transacted.
A light frost fell here this morning.
The quarantine against all points in
South Florida, except Tampa and Hills
borough county, has been declared off by
the Jacksonville Board of Health, and this
example has been followed by the other
cities of the State. A rigid cordon will lie
maintained around Hillsborough county,
and it is believed that there
is now no danger of the disease
spreading outside of Tampa. The Timrs-
Llnion'n report from Tampa is: “Twenty
new cases to-day and two deaths. The dis
ease is of a very mild type. The weather is
cool and favorable.”
Palatka, Fla., Oct. 22.—Ocala and
Gainesville are satisfied that there is no yel
low in this city and have raised the quaran
tine against Palatka. The Jacksonville
Board of Health has finally agreed to raise
the quarantine against Palatka, to the great
relief of the jxxiple of both cities. There is
a conviction among the business men of
Jacksonville that there was no excuse for it.
Hernando county sends assurances to-day
that it never quarantined against this city.
ADVICES TO THE GOVERNMENT.
Washington, Oct. 22.—Surgeon General
Hamilton has received a telegram from
Deputy Collector Spencer, at Tumpa, Fla.,

terday. He says that the hospital has been
finished and that, the nurses from Savannah
have arrived. He also states under date of
Oct. 21 that there have been 150 cases and

is situated, saying that there has been no
yellow fever in that county since the death
of the refugee from Tampa at Interlachen,
on Oct. 13.
The Jury Declares That He Fired the
Shots in Self Defense.
Jacksonville. Fla., Oct. 32.— Before
the Coroner's jury in the Mac Williams
case this forenoon, T. A. Judson squarely
contradicted Winter, one of the witnesses
who testified that he saw the shooting. Jud
son testified that he knew Winter well, and
that when the shooting occurred he (Jud
son) was in the rear of Houston’s place, and
that Winter was there all the while.
Gibbert, a gunsmith, testified that Mac-
Williams usually earned one blank cart
ridge in his pistol.
Mr. Pope said he had a witness who would
testify that he saw Houston and Bangs
standing on the corner listening to Mac
Williams’ Thomas. The other
side then said they desired other witnesses
called and furnished a list of them.
A stop was put to this by the constables
refusing to serve the subpoenas without
some guarantee of their bills.
Chairman Robinson, of the County Com
missioners. had told ihom the county would
not pay the bills and the constables said
they could not afford to serve the papers for
nothing. The jury then closed the doors
for a conference, aud on their being opened
announced a recess to 3 o’clock. But they
said they proposed to finish the inquest
The jury rendered a Verdict of justifiable
homicide to-night. The finding was that

President Paine, of the Bub-Tropical, says
all the work is going forward very satisfac
tory. The work on the buildings and
grounds is a month ahead of their expecta
tions. The first, installment of the Bahama
exhibit came this weak, and another is ex
pected next month. Clarence Burnside,
tbo commissioner for the Bahamas, expects
to have a very complete exhibit. Another
thing that Mr. Paine spoke of was the ca
pacity of Jark-onville and the near suburbs
to accommodate the people. He Itad been
to Atlanta and knew what a crush meant,
and the Bub-Tropical management pro
posed to havo ample accommodations here.

E. Lee will take place next Thursday. The
event promises to boa marked one in the
history of this already historical city. The
day selected by the Lee Monument Associa
tion is the big day of the State

to an immense influx of visitors and
probably the largest gathering ever seen in
Richmond. Clamp No. 1, of Confeder
ate Veterans, has been assigned the post, of
honor, and the committees from the camp
having charge of the details of the ceremo
nies have worked assiduously for several
weeks, and their labors will doubtless result
in a most creditable demonstration. Invi

on the Union side during the late war, and

“Little Abe” Unveils It at Lincoln
Chicago, Oct. 22.—The great statue of
Abraham Lincoln was unveiled this evening
at Lincoln Park, in the presence of a large
crowd, by “Little Abe" Lincoln, son of

one of the trustees of the Bates’ fund, out of
which the cost of the statue was defrayed,
formally presented the figure to the
Lincoln Park Board, and W. C. Gaudy
replied in behalf of the board. The oration
was delivered by Hon. Leonard Sweet, whose
intimate political, social and domestic rela

A RUSH FOR CALIFORNIA.
The Santa Fe Road Unable to Carry All
Santa Fe, N. M., Oct 22.—1n the past
ten days upwards of 5,000 persons have
passed down the main line of the Santa Fe
road, en route to California. Last night
a west-bound train was run in three
sections, and about 1,500 persons were
on board. Triple-headers will be
run during the remainder of
this month. Passengers say thut many are
compelled to wait several days at Kansas
City before they can secure accommoda
tions on the Santa Fe trains. The recently
issued circular letter of the Southern Pacific
Company to various Transcontinental lines
advocating the buying up by the California
Terminal lines of the return jwrtions of
these tickets to California, which are
now selling at $6O, with six months
limit for each, in order to keep them out of
scalpers’hands, has precipitated a great war
in transcontinental rates. The move was a
direct stab at the Santa Fe road, and from
passengers who came in from Kansas City
last night it was learned that the war is on
in earnest. The Santa Fe and Union Pacific
roads are both crowding the fight.
At first they made west-bound
rate for the Missouri river #4O, but within
three days past this lias been cut to #2O,
and many of those who v. cnt through last
night arc traveling at this rate. It is
thought the Southern Pacific will now carry
out its threat to handle California passen

FELL DEAD IN COURT.
An Uncommon Incident in a Petty
Case at Augusta.
Augusta, Ga., Oct. 23.—An extremely
sad and sensational occurrence was wit
nessed by the attendants upon the Re
corder’s Court this morning. Two Augusta
factory girls appeared before the court
upon a charge of lighting. Among the wit
nesses was Mrs. Emma Lakey, a resjiertable
woman of the factory district, Judge Dun
bar presided and Lieut. Hood was the officer
of the court. Mis. Lakey was the first wit
ness called. She advanced to the witness
stand, where the oath was administered,
when she held up her hand in compliance
with the rules, answered yes and imme
diately fell upon the floor dead. A few
moments before she was a picture of health,
being a large, rosy-cheeked woman, and just
before being called upon was laughing with
friends. The body was removed and an in
quest held. The jury returned a verdict of
death from heart disease.
While Lewis Wright (colored) was cross
ing the Port Royal railroad trestle, adjoin
ing the Sa van mill river bridge, this after
noon he fell, striking a projecting timber,
which also fell, killing him instantly. The
body was fearfully mangled.
Hamburg was this afternoon again the
scene of another shooting scrape. Norvel
Smith, a convict captured a few days ago,
stole a gun from Thomas Butler which
he sold to Jerry MUledge. Butler
found it in Mill edge's possession and de
manded that it bo returned. This the ne
gro refused to do, when a rough and tum
ble tight, ensued, and but for interference
Butler would have come out second best.
When the nogro was pulled off Butler quick
ly jumped to his feet, drew a revolver and
fired, but missed his mark. The negro then
rau and Butler fired again, striking him on
the spinal column about the small of the
back. A physician was summoned and pro
nounced the wound fatal. Butler was not
interfered with, and probably will not be
as Hamburg is a somewhat lawless town.

The Sanguinary Battle Reported in

Rt. Louis, Oct. 22.— A dispatch from the
agent of the Associate'll Press at Fort Smith,

It was exceedingly cold and the few
I spei-tators present were kept constantly

afraid of the ball and handled it very ten

ordinary circumstances, would have hum

the umpire called the game, on account of
the extreme cold. The game was uninter
