DI RUDINI'S DOUBLE GAME
VltlDAY NIGHT'S SENSATIONAL RE
PORT INSPIRED HY HIM.
At tho Siuno Time No Such Threat aa
Stated Was Made to This Govern-mont-Tho
Coming Reckoning With
Yesterday's developments in the Italian af
fair make it evident that tho Maiquis di Ku
dtni, the Italian Premier, is still playing a
double game. He finds it necessary to mako
'the Italians believe that ho Is prodding this
Government up in most belligerent fashion In
order to fire tho Dago heart and flatter the
national vanity. He does this by allowing to
become public such reports as that of Friday
night, to the effect that ho had threatened to
end United States Minister Porter home and
break off all diplomatic relations with this
country unless Mr. Blaine gave a satisfactory
answer to his late note before last night. At the
-same time, the fact that this Government has
received no such insolent threats shows tho
emptiness of the reports from Rome.
It is a-matter of positive knowledge that
the Italian government has not sent to this
Government or any of its representatives a
notification that a reply is expected to Mar
quis Rudini's last note within a specific time.
It is not customary in diplomatic affairs for
any nation to undertake to dictate the date of
correspondence coming from another nation,
and had Italy adopted this course it would
certainly be regarded with umbrage by our
own Government and would exclto gieat sur
prise among the diplomats of other nations,
whose customs are regulated by unwritten
but immutable law.
As stated in diplomatic and couiteous
phraseology in Secretary Blaine's letter to
the Marquis Imperial!, tho Government of the
United States proposes to deal with the ques
tions at issue earnest', but with caution aud
A neceb6ary preliminary to the disposition
of the New Orleans matter is a reliable official

and their records in this country and in Italy.

from Rome indicated that the Premier was
willing to take into consideration evidence on
'the latter point. This evidence has not yet
Officers under the control of the Depart
ment of Justice are still at work in New Or
leans, and their repoits have not yet reached
the Attorney General, by whom they must be
'submitted to Secretary Blaine.
But the Department of State is not content
ing itself with a specific inquiry into the his
tory of the antecedents of the New Orleans
victims. It proposes to show the Italian
government tho extent of tho evil of unre
stricted immigration from which tho United
States is now suffering, and this purpose
necessitates plain dealing with the character
of a considerable element of our population
which has largely been recruited from Italy.
So some interesting statistics are in course of
preparation that will touch with blunt direct
ness upon the number of murders and out
rages committed In recent years in tho United
States by members of tho Mafia and other
secret Italian organizations, and upon tho
vendettas that are Imported into the United
States to the disturbance of tho peace and iu
volving expense to our tax-payers In the
prosecution of malefactors. Time is required
to compile these facts and the Department of
State will take the necessary time, while
taking care to clear its skirts of suspicion of

IT CAME FROM DI RUDINI,
Mow Friday Night's Sensational Report
Rome, April 11. Tho principal topic of
conversation to-day in political official circles
has been tho latest report put In circulation
last evening, to tho effect that unless tho
American Government mado a very speedy
reply to Premier Rudini's last note Minister
Porter would bo politely requested to leave
Rome and the Italian Legation would bo re
called fiom "Washington. General interest in
tho Now Orleans affair had subsided and
everybody supposed that the incident wouI$
bo settled through tho usual diplomatic
channels without further irritation or friction.
Last night's report, therefore, camo with
startling suddenness. It seems to indicate,
if it should prove well founded, that tho
Italian Cabinet was Again dissatisfied with tho
progress of tho correspondence with Secretary
Blame, and proposed that tho United States
Government should act In tho matter with
Such an attitude on tho part of tho Italian
government seemed so unreasonable, in view
of all tho recent developments, that last night's
report was at first generally discredited. Many
of the newspapers, however, to-day gave it
conspicuous prominence in their columns, and
asserted their belief that it was substantially
correct. They say that America Is to be al
lowed until next Tuesday. April 14, to reply
to tho last Italian note. Thooilglnal loport
had fixed to-day as tho limit. Ifby Tuesday
no reply is forthcoming from Secretary Blaine,
then the papers declare diplomatic communi
cation between the two countries is to be
wholly suspended. As a result of the news
papers' assertions the report this evening is
not so summarily dismissed as Incredible.
Many who at flr6t scouted it as utterly with
out foundation aro now inclined to thluk that
it may have some basis, while tho believers in
Italian self-assertion aud a vigorous foreign
policy are elated.
Tho original source of tho report seems to
give it increased plausibility. This, It Is
learned this evening, was a prominent mem
ber of tho Chamber of Doputles, who Is an
ardent supporter of Marquis di Rudlnl, and
who Is bollovcd to sharo his confidence.
Whotbcr or not tho Premier has actually de
cided already upon tho oxtremo course In
dicated, it is unquestionable that this course
Is under discussion in high government cir
cles, and meets with fuvorablo comment. It
may bo that tho Deputy who started the re
port supposed a decision had been reached
when tho subject was really only belni" con
sidered, and it may bo tho report was given
out to teat public opinion before the Cabinet
should commit itself absolutely to so gravo a
Despatches from America hint that Secretary
Blaino has already prepared his answer, and
that it is thought likely that ho has already
sent it to Romo instead of through Marquis
Imperial!. If that bo tho caso ho must havo
despatched it by post, as it is certain that no
reply has yet been rccdlved.
NO AMERICAN NEED FEAR.
Rome, April 11. In reply to a number of in
quiries received at tho United States Legation
In this city from Americans Intending to visit
Italy during tho coming season as to whether
it is safe, in view of tho agitation caused by tho
Now Orleans lynchlncs, to travel in Italy, tho
officials of the Legation havo assured the in
quirers that it is perfectly safe to travel In this
country. They add that not a single case of in
sult or outrage In which an American has been
tho object has been reported to the Legation.
Italy Is too dependent upon tho moneys spent
by travelers, which sums are estimated to
amount to $100,000,000 annually, to do any
thing that would curtail that expenditure, es
pecially upon the travelers from the other side
of tho Atlantic, who aro considered, with tho
English, to bo tho most liberal dispensers of
coin. Of this sum it is reckoned that American
travelers spend fully one-fifth. It is further
estimated that 30,000 American travelers visit
Romo each year, most of the hotels and stores
of this city depending mainly upon Americans
In any caso, tho excitement supposed to
exist hero has been ereatlv exaggerated. So
v far as the present condition of affairs Is con
cerned no American need fear to travel In
The Italian customs lecelpts for tho month
of March show a reduction of $900,000, as com
pared with tho same month in the year 1890.
ON A LiEAVE OF ABSENCE.
Baron Favu Tells a Now York ErJond
Ho Is Still Minister Hero.
New York, April 11. Dr. Rovorsl, of 11
Progrcsso Italo-Amcricano, stated to-night
that ho had been authorized by Baron Fava to
state for publication that ho was only going
to Romo on a "leave of absence," and that ho
is still tho Italian Minister in Washington.
Dr. Rovorsl further 6tated that ho believes
Secretary Blaino is a "most smart politician,"
but in this affair he has been altogether too
tricky, that his policy exceeded the limits of
diplomacy. "Mr. Blaino," ho said, "may
havo local political reasons for being so, but
this is not a proper timo for him to exercise
Referring to tho recent despatches from
Romo the doctor says ho belioves them to bo
fictitious or else sent either by tho French
newspapers or inspired by tho Vatican.

AND THERE WASSOME VERY LIVELY
Tho Florida Senatorial Fight Loiuls to a
Shooting: Affray Mr. Call's Friend,
Alexander, and Mr. Dunn's Frlond,
Harvey, Use Their 1'lHtols.
Tallahassee, Fla., April 11. A shooting
affray took place on tho piazza of tho Leon
Hotct about 2 o'clock this afternoon be
tween S. S. Harvey, of Pensacola, and J. E.
Alexander, of Doland. Harvey has been one
of tho active workers for John P. Dunn in his
contest for tho United States Senatorshlp, and
Alexander is hero in Senator Call's interests.
Harvey was seated on tho piazza when Alex
ander came up tho 6teps with W. II. Clark,
ex-postmaster of Jacksonville. Harvey beck
oned to Alexander to walk down tho porch
Harvoy had heard that Alexander had re
ported that he (Harvoy) had boasted that
there was $250,000 in hand at Tallahassee
with which to defeat Call, and he asked
Alexander if ho . had circulated this story,
adding that "he did not propose to let him
or any other man toll lies about him.
Alexander asked if Harvey meant to call
him a liar, and upon Harvey's replying
"Yes," he struck Harvey a blow on the left
temple. Then botfi1 men drew-'thcir pistols
almost simultaneously. Harvey fired. Clark
struck his arm up and the ball missed
Alexander. Alexander turned and ran, and
Harvey fired a second shot at him as he passed
through the door. Clark, still struggling with
Harvey, then ran to the door and fired a third
shot at Alexander as tho latter disappeared
through tho back door of the office leading to
the barber shop. None of tho shots took
effect, with tho exception of a spent ball,
which hit Albertus Vogtln the foot, doing no
In a group within twenty feet of Harvey
when ho fired and in a direct line of his shots
were E. H. Purdy, of Daytona; J. G. Spotts
wood, A. Vogt, and F. W. Hawthorne, agent
of tho Associated Press. They had to dodeo
to escape being hit. When Harvoy fired tho
third shot across tho office there were half a
dozen peoplo passing in and out of the dining
room and up and down the stairs. But
luckily no one was hit. Tho wildest excite
ment prevailed for a few minutes, and tho
whole hotel was in an uproar. Several minor
altercations grow out of tho affair. Alexander
says that his pistol caught in tho case as ho
was pulling it from his pocket, which enabled
Harvey to "get the drop" on him. After that
ho did not dare to fire for fear of hitting Clark,
who was struggling with Harvey. Alexander
undoubtedly owes nls life to Clark's Interfer
ence. No arrests woro made, but the mayor
served notice on both men to appear in court
Monday morning. It is predicted that he will
fine both men heavily on to or three differ
ent charges. Alexander's friends had told
him early in tho day that Harvoy was looking
for him and that there would bo trouble, and
ono of these friends had Insisted that Alex
ander take his pistol, which he finally did.

A GREAT POLITICAL EVENT
PRINCE BISMAKCK'S TRIUMPHANT
Bo Resumes a Leading Rolo Bocauao of
llecauso of tho Renewal of tho Euro
pean Crisis Germans Intonsoly Inter
ested in Next "Woilnosilay's Election.
Copyrighted by Assoolatcd Press.
Berlin, April 11. Tho electoral contest at
Geestemunde, whoro Princo Bismarck's can
didacy for tho Reichstag is opposod by candi
dates belonging to tho Socialist and Pro
gressist parties, has assumed tho proportions
of a great political ovent. The entire Intorest
of tho country centres in the result of next
Wednesday, on which day the polling will
tako place. Piinco Bismarck has definitely
accepted the candidature on the assurance
that he will receive a triumphant majority.
This result was doubtful while a coalition be
tween tho Guelphs, Catholics, and Progress
ist parties appeared probable. Before Dr.
Windthorst, tho clerical leader, died he ad
vised such a combination as tho best chance
to defeat his old foe, but the Catholics now
refuse to support the Progressist candidate.
The peasant vote will bo given solidly to
Prince Bismarck as tho champion of agri
cultural interests, besides his being tho greatest
living German. A combination between tho
Socialists and Piogresslsts might check the
return of tho Princo on the first vote, but as
tho day of election nears the prospects of such
a coalition lessens.
Accepting Piinco Bismarck's reappearance
in the Reichstag as certain, everybody asks
what his lino of action will be when there.
Ho himself states that ho will only sit In the
house if political events require his Interven
tion. Count Herbert Bismarck, who has been
staying in Berlin since Tuesday, has told some
of his friends that events seemed likely to
hasten his father's presence in tho Reichstag.
The pessimist views of the foreign situa
tion published by tho Bismarckian press gen
erally conclude with the suggestion that the
Prince's continued absence from politics is
bad for the country.
There is no doubt that the renewal of the
European crisis is the motive of Princo Bis
marck's resuming a le&ding rOle.
Professor Delbruck, an eminent Free Con
servative, in an article In tho Prcus Siche
Jahrbucher, predicts misfortune to tho Prince
or tho government. Either the ex-Chancellor,
he says, will overturn tho government to real
ize power, or he will bo crushed and end his
life in gloom and shame.
Tho Ifambmgcr Nachrichten denies that it is
tho intention of tho Princo to offer any vehe
ment opposition to the Emperor's foreign
policy, but. proceeding to give authoritative
views on the situation abroad, tho Nachrich
tcn discloses that tho Prince's ideas aro directly
opposed to tho policy of tho government.
In discussing tho question as to whether
Prince Bismarck will try to form a great party
tho Gegenwart publishes a letter of the Prince
to Georgo Winter, of Marburg, in which he
says: "Though I desire to see formed a great
homogeneous parliamentary majority, I fear it
is a vain wish. It will bo as difficult to realize
it in tho future as I found It in the past."
These expressions cleat ly denote some Inten
tion to attempt to construct a potent parlia
Tho Hamburg Socialists threaten to mako a
riotous demonstration in Geestemunde on the
day of tho voting. They will Bend contingents
for tho purpose of making a lively tlmo. Tho

marks to aid tho local Socialist committee.
The local authorities havo been warned by tho
government to preserve tho peace.
