Copyright by New York Associated Press.!
Beulin, April 12. Immediately upon his re
turn from Wiesbaden Emperor William will
hold a scries of prolonged conferences with the
heads of thu various departments. It is re
ported to bo the determination of tho Emperor
to cxcrci6c a rigid personal scrutiny over every
measure. Besides overloading himself with
work he in tho mean time threatens to paralyze
ministerial work. None of tho bills based on
the decisions of the Labor Conference and pre
pared by Baron Von Berlcpsch havo yet re
ceived the final imperial sanction. The assent
of the Bundesrath to the measures is doubtful.
The federal governments do not share tho Em
peror's eager haste for reforms.
Beyond the pregnant fact that the Reichstag
will bo asked to grant a military credit of prob
ably 800,000,000 marks, nothing is known of the
government's programme. The Progressist
press Indulges In visions of a change in the
tariff policy, a reduction of the duties on
cereals and on articles absolutely necessary for
the use of the people. It is not believed that
the Emperor will entangle himself In the diffi
culties entailed by a revision of the tariffs,
which would involve 'complete reforms In the
whole financial and fiscal system of the.Empire.
Neither tho Reichstag nor the Bundesrath
will ever assent to an extension of, the imperial
powers toward absolutism. Already the lead
ing federal princes of the empire, incredulous
of the Emperor's capacity and scared by his
methods of governing, are tryiugto tone down
his self-confidence. The governments of Bava
ria, WUrtemburg, and Saxony, which hold
fourteen votes in the Bundesrath, will not co
operate in Imperial measures unless the Em
peror consults them more on the general lines
of his policy.
The Reichstag will meet with the various
parties undetermined awaiting the effect of
the government programme before grouping
themselves. The official record of the com
position of the Reichstag, after the second bal
lots, is as follows: Conservatives, 72; Imper
ialists, 19; National Liberals, 43; Freisinnige,
07: Centrists. 107: Socialists. 35: "Volks Partie.

.JEALOUSY LEADS TO MURDER.
Fatal Affray llctwcon Roys on tho I'cnn-sylvania-Avonuo
Pennsylvania avenue Bridge received its bap
tism of blood on Friday night, when Charles
Thompson stabbed Murray Cassecn, who died
early Saturday morning at his home, a small
shanty on Fourteenth street southeast. The
participants were hardly more than boys.
Jealousy was the cause of the fracas. Cassecn,
who was the aggressor, became mad with jea
lousy on seeing Thompson escorting an ac
quaintance, a girl named Ada Young, and with
tlircc companions assaulted Thompson. The
latter drew a penknife which had a blade about
2J inches long, and it was with this the cutting
was done. Cassecn was stabbed twice in tho
hack and slightly cut in tho left leg. The
wounded man walked a mile to the office of
Dr. Parker, Eighth and E streets southeast,
whore his wounds were dressed.
When ho went homo from tho doctor's office
he fainted f torn loss of blood, lie died about
2 o'clock. Casseen was about nineteen years
of age, while Thompson is but eighteen.
Thompson was arrested yesterday morning.
Last night the police arrested Charles Brau
shaw, Joseph Burch, and Charles Posey and
locked them up as accessories to tho murder.
The coroner will hold an inquest to-day at the

Ho May Consent to a Parliament In Ordor
to Suvo His Own Life.
Beulin, April 12. Court advices from St.
Petersburg are that the movement in favor of a
constitution finds adherents in the Czar's circle.

induced less by liberalism than by fears of a
revolution, heads a ministerial section that is
urging the Czar to create a parliament consist
ing of representatives of the nobility elected by
tho Zemtsvos, with a limited uumber of dele
gates elected by towns. The Czar's repugnance
to a parliament is reported as giving way, under
the belief that tho establisbmentof a parliament
would put an end to the attempts on his life.

only by close scrutiny could the faint respira
tions of tho sick man be detected at all.
Towards dawn Mr. Randall rallied, but

hover between life and death. At any mo
ment, the physician said, the end might come.

IT CREATES THE LIVELIEST KIND OF
A TIME IN CniCAGO.
Price Sent Kiting Four Dollar n Rarrel
In n I'oiv Hours Exciting Scones Attend
ing tho Transaction Tho Orlclnator.s of
tho Corner Give Up.
Chicago, April 12. When trade opened iu
pork to-day the wildest excitement provailcd,
the crowd waking up to the fact that tho
market was cornered. For some mouths past
the Sawyer-Wallace clique, of New York, it Is
generally supposed, havo been buying up pork,
and when business started in this morning
there was not any pork for salo under $12.75.
As tho closing prlco yesterday was $11.45, this
was a mighty big bulge, but there was "worso
and moro of It'rlatcr. It kept advancing fivo
cents or moro at a time, and beforo the close of
tho first hour was selling at $15.25. As Is
usually the case when prices aro booming at
that rate, very little was sold, but there was
tremendous excitement and tho pit was
crowded with tho traders and spectators. July
pork showed a similar advance, and lard and
ribs were somewhat higher. McCormlck ifc.
Co,, the representatives of tho Now
York clique, wero again prominent as
buyers of July pork, and Armour, nutchinson,
Poolo, and Baldwin were nlso buyers. Later in
the morning Hutchinson's men bid $15.75 for
July pork, which was an advance of more than
$4 per barrel over last night's closing prices. It
was apparent the clique was after somo big
shorts, most of tho orders coming from New
York to Hutchinson. As no regular pork can bo
made until October, tho clique has control of
all tho months up to that time. Subsequently
July pork was offered at 12.55, and It looked
as though some big shorts had run In, for
the offerings wero numerous and there wero no
bids. It was said that ono house called mar
gins for $500,000 on provisions. A good many
of tho boaid, however, attributed Cue squeeze
to Armour. They say that tho Sawyer-Wallace
clique transferred the deal to him when they
found they wero unable to carry it through and
that hlsis now the master hand. Hatley &
Swift were large buyers of lard, and Armour
bought ribs,- while T. J. Ryan & Co. bought
4;000,000 pounds of May and July ribs.
