THE ARMY BILL UNDOUBTEDLY
REJECTED AT THE TOLLS.
A Majority of the Deputies so far
Elected to the Reichstag Hostile

tal of the Empire by the Gains of

Berlin, June 16. The election returns
from the country are coming in slowly.
From the returns at hand it is judged
that second ballots will be necessary in
125 districts. The National Liberals, who
expected to lose ten seats, reducing their
delegation from forty to thirty, contend
that they will have thirty-eight seats
after the second ballots. The Richter
Radicals will have about the same. The
Social Democrats claim sixty seats after
the second ballots, The Conservatives
and Free Conservatives are likely to hold
their own. The number of Lieber Cler
icals elected is about 100. The results up
to date indicats the government's defeat.
The result of yesterday's election so far
as Berlin is concerned can be considered
an almost complete triumph for the So
cialist party. Not ouly has their vote in
creased since the last election, but the
proportion of the vote between the Radi
cals and the Socialists is such timt in
some wards the Radicals practically have
no chance iu the second ballots. In Ber
lin the Socialist vote has increased uearly
one-fifth over the vote of 1890. In the
provinces the returns are eminently satis
factory to the Socialists, and- the results
of the second ballots will undoubtedly
mean a isreac accession to the Socialist
strength in thereichstng.
This evening the numerical relations of
the parties as indicated by the returns con
firm, in most respects, the estimates made
at noon. The Socid Democrats have
continued to gain at the expouse of the
Riehterists. The government parties have
lost apparently four of their former sents,
but have made up for the loss by increas
ing their chances in the second ballots and
by winning three seats formerly held by
tha opposition. The Free Conservatives,
moreover hav apparently tborospect of
c tonight the returns may bo
in ISO districts from
whicli reports have been received 85
deputies have been elected. In the re
maiuing 95 districts new ballots will be
necessary. Of the 85 members elected 36
will vote with Him government and 49 j
against it. The parties siding with the
government hud lost 3 seats to the op
position, but the parties working against
the government had evened the matter tip
by los-iug tho same number of seats to the
friends of the army bill. The Conserva
tives had elected 17 deputies; the Social
Democrats, 23, the Clericals, 20; the Radi
cal Unionists, 1; the Free Conservatives, 4;
the Pole, S; the Democrats, 5: tho Auti
Semites, 2; the Independents, 2 (both fav
orable to the army bill), the government
clericals, 1, and the National Liberals, 1.
Not one immediate supporter of
Eugene Richter, the anti-government radi
cal, had been elected. The Conservatives
Won two seals formerly held by the Free
Conservatives. The Social Democrats
gaiped 3 seats from the Riehterists and 1
from the Free Conservatives. The Lieber
eleticals gained 1 seat from
the government clericals and had lost
1 to them. The Radical Unionists had
elected 1 deputy, wno vottd against the
army bill, but will vote for it in the next
reichstag. The Free Conservatives gained
2 seats and lost 3. The Democrats gained
1 seat from the National Liberals. The
National Liberals lost 3 seats and gained
2. The most interesting feature in the
new ballots reported until now will be the
probable gain-, of the Social Democrats
and Radical Uuionists.

streets. The police dispersed them with
drawn swores and arrested the leaders. In
tins city the police arrested Herr Liu

The revised lists of the Berlin polls show
that the Radical vote fell off from 75,000 to
52,085. while the Social Democratic vote
increased from 126,317 to 150,977. The vote
of the Conservatives and anti-Semites
increased from 34,093 to 4S,135.
Berlin, June 17. At 2 o'clock this
morning the Clericals and National Lib
erals were holding their own. The Rich
ter Radicals remain very far behind. Of
the ninety-eight deputies already elected
forty-two are counted f of the army bill
and fifty-six against it. Since the 10

ment has g uued one new seat.

TrfE "KATY" GENERAL OFFICES
T0PKA, Kan., June 16. Ex Senator C.
H. Kimball and County Attorney Farley
of Parsons were at the state house yester
day to consult with the attorney general
regardiug an action in the courts to forfeit
the charter of the Missouri, Kansas and
Texas railway in Kansas for failing to
maintain general headquarters in this
state as the law requires. All the oflicers
of the company have moved from Parsons
to St. Louis. The company still pretends
to have beaduuarters at Parsous and has
three or four "clerks there who are given
the titles of "general manager," "presi
dent," "auditor," "treasurer," etc., but it
is only a pretension, and the attorney gen
eral says that such an evasion of the law
will never be tolerated. Senator Kimball
and Mr. Farley were anxious to go into
the courts at once and have the charter of
the company declared forfeited as quickly
as possible, but the attorney geneial says
this cannot be done. The law gives the
company six months in which to comply
with its provisions, and even then it is a
question whether the suit could be suc
It is claimed by some of the attorneys
that the officers of the company might at
the end of six months return to Parsons,
remain a few days, then go back to St.
Louis and thereby evade the law, It is
not likely tbatiroceedings will be begun
by the state until the expiration of the
ToPEKA, Kan., June 1C Senator Mar
tin has been trying to get something defi
nite from Washington about the appoint
ment, but a telegram stating that Secre
tary Carlisle says no resignation has been
filed by Collector Leland is the only direct
information that comes from Washington.
Yesterday a delegation headed by Manford
Schoonover of Garuett, in the interest of
George Currier for collector, called on the
senator. J. D. Hill of Fort Scott, who is
chairman of the Second district congres
sional committee, also called ou Mr. Mar
tiu. Hill would like to have the collector
ship, and there are indications that Mar
tin will indorse him, if he has not already
done so. J. B. Chapman of the Topeka
Press has been mentioned as a compromise
candidate, and Mr. Chapman would not
object to the position, "but it is probable
that Martin has agreed upon someone else.
The facr. that Martin has been turned
down in neariy one-half of the postoffico
appointment? already made does not seem
to worry the aimy of candidates.
SONS OF THE REVOLUTION.
Chicago, June 16. There was a lively
incident today iu the meeting of tho Sons
of the American Revolution. Bishop
Cheney of Chicago desired the phrase
"To oppose by moral means the spread of
anarchical ideas and lawlessness," to be
incorporated in the constitution.
When he had finished, General Brecken
ridge of Washington was on his feet, and
hotly opposed the resolution. "This -society."
shouted he, "has no more business
trying to put down Auarchy than it has to
put down belli"
Another delegate also opposed the
amendment, which was voted down.
An amendment was adopted which de
clared the objects -of the society tq be? to
perpetuate the memory of the revolution
ary heroes and to promote friendship
amoug their descendants.
Tonight the members were banqueted at
the Union League club.
The following officers were elected:
President general, Horace Porter; vice
presidents general, Chauucey M. Depew,
Henry M. Shepard, Thomas M. Anderson,
General J. C. Breckenridge .and Heucy C.
Robinson; secretary general, Frankliu
Murphy; registrar general, Howard Clark;
historian general, Henry Hall; chaplain
general, Bishop Cheney.
.THE RAILWAY SCALE LAW.
ToPEKA.Kan., June 10. Rerresentativcs
of the railroads in Kansas met yesterday
at the office of A. L. Williams, general
solicitor of the Union Pacific, to consider
tho law passed by the last legislature re
quiring all companies to build scales at all
stations doiug a business of 100 cars a year.
It would cost about $1,000,000 to carry out
the law. The railroad companies legard
the law -as uujust and in all probability
unconstitutional, and it was the opinion
of all the attorneys present at. yesterday's
meetintr thnt they should make a fight in
the courts. The law requires the corn
paies to have all the scales built- by tho
first of July, but all the companies have
ignored it and will continue to do so. It
is quite probable that some steps will bo
taken at an eariy date to bring the matter
iuto the courts. It is said the law was
hastily considered by tho legislature and is
defective in mauy particulars.
Topeka, Kan., June 16. A. A. Robin

Chicago, June 16. A great bulge in
corn occurred today, accompanied by con
siderable excitement and heavy trading.
The news that France would take the duty
off of feeding grains was the chief cause of
the advance. Corn opeued active and
3lcent higher. Under an urgent de
mand and meagre offerings tho price went
uu m cents more, when the French cables
said that the market was easier for wheat
and Hour. This caused a disposition to
ell, resulting in a break of Jsl cent.
The market rallied, however, and tit the
close had gained 1(&2 ceuts. There was a
moderate business in wheat. The feeling
was unsettled. The close showed a gain of

market was stronger, closing ceut high

and ribs were 10 cents lower, with pork
NEW York, June 16. R. G. Dun & Co. 'a
weekly review of trade s-iys:
"Concerted action by the banks of New
York has changed the situation consider
ably. More failures and the tremendous
drain of money to tho west had such an
effect here that the banks were unanimous
iu deciding udou the issue of clearing
house certificates. .Much increased ac
commodation for the business community
is expected to result, and doubtless will,
uuless speculation is stimulated to absorb
all the increase in available resources
through undue preference for marketable
securities over other asets. The weakness
of the banks at many western points con
tinues, and the wide-spread stringency is
having a serious effect upon merchauti
aud manufacturers who are in no way con
cerned with speculative operations. A
very sharp fall in foreign exchange re
moves all chance of gold exports at present,
but it is due to foreign purchases of secur
ities rather than to a change ifi the trade
balances. The exports in two weeks of
June, it is true, ate but $2,700,000, or 15 per
cent, less than lastyeaiJ.i, and imports
show a small decrease in place of the enor
mous iuciease reported for months, but
the balances are still advcise aud are likely
to be for some time.
"Tho decline in prices has led to some
increase in tho foreign demand for prod
ucts, but this has been followed by ai; ad
vance of more than 1 cent in wheat, with
hales of only27.000.000 umbels; 2'i ceuts in
corn, and 3 10 cent iu cottou, with sales of
1)30,000 bales. Pork has fallen 50 cents,
oats, ceut; coffee, Js cent, and oil, 1
cent. Any material increase in exports at
this season must come from the market
ing of tho surplus cottou and wheat car
ried over, and this the ndvauce in prices
tends to prevent. Wheat receipts are stiJI
large. Accounts of the growing crops are
decidedly moro favotable from the north
west, but are conflicting as to cotton.
The output of pig Iron declined 7,522
tons weekly in May. and Is scarcely larger
than a year neo. The stocks ou hand havo
declined IS.000 tons in a month, but a
further reduction of tho output is in
progress. The market for irou aud its
oroducts remains dull and unsatisfactory,
bar being especially weak, nud southern
pig much pressed for ale. Tin has ad
vanced 0 5 cents per hundred pounds, but
copper has i-o!d at 10X cent for plate
and lead at 3.7 cents. The market for
wool is much depressed.
"Reports from other cities nearly all
show tight money and slow collection.
The exceptions as to money are a few
Boutheru cities, like Charleston aud
Mobile. At New Orleam money is ingood
demand but fair supply, whilo at Knox
ville the demand is smaller. The volume
ot business has been much affected by the
prevailing stringency and the caution
nbout credits The market for stocks hits
beeu stronger for the waek, though the ad
vance lias averaged less thau 50 cents par
share, and the demand for money hs ad
vanced rates on call quite sharply. The
failures during the week were 313 in the
United States, against 133 last year."
New York, June 16. The clearing
house loan committee met ibis morning,
but did not issue any certificate. After
the meeting the members of the committee
declined to give out any information an to
whether any would be issued today. The
committee will meet again tomorrow, and
certificates may then bisiMnwi. The action
of the clearing-house, in deciding to Ssue
certificate?, was warmly commended on
every hand today, and it was conceded
thai the announcement of the resolution
bad a very benficiai effect. A nseailwr of
the Ciearing-House association, speaking
of Ihe matter, said;

I do not care to answer specifically the
question as to whether congress should bo

I prepired to say that the president, lu
assuring the people that ho would call na
extra session of congress in September, or
before if necessary,' referred to tho
emergency which has called for the issuiug
of clearing-house certificates."
Henry V. Camion, president of the
Chase National bank, said:
"As I understand the matter, the presl
deut, iu his interview, stated that if, in
his opinion, it was necessary and wise to
dose, he would call a special se.vdon of
congress beforo September next to consider
what change should be made iu financial
legisistioo, and I understand from his in
terview that he is considering the situa
tion iu nil its bearings. I presume tho
action of the Clearing House association
here will have soma effect upon his mind
ic regard to the matter. Whether or not

wise to cull congreivs together if a wlda

fit the country to enter into a long and.
exhaustive discussion, of the matter a
the prefect time. If, on the coutrnry,
members of congess will vote for the re
peal of the silver purchase act, the sooner
action is taken the better."
A. B. Hepburn, president of th Third
National bank, said:
"Niuety-two per cent of all tho business
transactions of the country aro represented
by credit simply bookkeeping; only S per
ceut aro represented by actual use of
money. A volume of currency amply
sufficient for business needs iu times of
confidence is wholly inadequate during a
period of distrust when credit Is refused.
