BELINm. Oct. 10.-After a long reaess the
bundearath, or legislative body represent
ing the individual states of Germany, re-,
assembled on Wednesday. The house con
sidered as the first order the projected law
to repress drunkenness, which, as is well
known, is a pet measure of the emperor.
A majority of the plenipotentiaries de
elated that their governments could not
accept the project in its present form. The
Bavarian representative intimated that his
state desired no noch liquor legis!ation as
the bill provided. The Prussian member,
aoting under instructions from the em
peror, was the only plenipotentiary who
defended the measure. The bill was finally
referred to a commission. It is certain that
it will appear in the reiabstag transformed
from a rude, thorough attack upon the
liquor trade into a mildly beneficent bill
for the protection of, drunkards. Liquor
dealers are arranging for holding a con
gress at Stuttgart for the purpose of organ
izing a political defense. The bundesrath
discussed the abolition of prohibition
against the importation of American pork
and approved the edict opening the country
to America, but will delay decision on the
proposal to relax the vexatious formalities
restricting the entry of Austrian, Italian
and Russian pork into Ger
many. Austria has complained of
the partiality shown to the United States,
while dreibund allies are not similarly
favored. Special interest attaches to the
socialistic congress shortly to assemble at
Erfurt. The directing committee has re
vised the programme. Its demands com
prise universal suffrage without distinction
as to sex; secret ballot; proportionate rep
resentation; voting on Sundays or holidays;
payment of members; popular right to in
itiate or reject legislation; popular control
of state, provincial and communal admin
ictrationes annual votes on taxations; popu
lar decision as to peace or war; creation of
Internatidnal arbitration tribunals; right
.of free speech and free meeting; aboli
tion of state subventions to
churches; universal military instruction,
militia repairing standing army; seculari
zation of schools free education, free jus
tice; that judges be elected by the people;
gratuitous medicine; state-supported doc
tors; progressive laoome tax; abolition of
indirect taatsaon: eight hours; unbroken
repose for thirty-six hours weekly for every
workman: state surveillance of factories,
mines and other industries; formation of
labor bureau; co-operation of workmen's
administrations; universal state insurance;
prohibiting employment of children under
14 years of age; prohibition of truck sys
tem and right of workmen to form coali
Comprehensive as these demands are,
there are extremists in the party who want
more. If the young section dominates in
the congress there will be some general
declarations against property and other
anarchistic resolutions adopted. The com
mittee has an elaborate programme, which,
while proposing to overturn the state, pro
poses to transform the state into a socialist
agency. During the emperor's presence in
Frankfort, where he visited the electrical
exhibition, an attempt was made to ascer
tain the imperial opinion in regard to the
Russian loan. It is reported that his maj
esty frankly said: "Bankers can do as
they please. My people understand that
lending money to Russia means war on
us." Nothing is now heard of the loan on
the bourse. No German will invest in it.
The German war office has been informed
of an important capture of a spy by the
Austrian authorities. The man who was
arrested at Suozala was discovered to be a
French staff officer. Papers of a highly
compromising character relating to the
Icrusso-Austrian frontier were found on

Foreigners Driven From the Central
Provinces of uhina.
HANoow, China, Sept. G.-A steamer ar
rived here to-day with the Ichang refugees,
twenty in all, who had lost everything they
possessed, except the clothing on their per
sons. 'deveral bore marks of serious vio
lence. The riot began at midday, without
warning or provocation. It was carried
out by a handful df men, evidently acting
under olders, and in the presence of a
number of Chinese officials who knew
every one of the rioters. That no lives
were taken is due solely to the good luok of
foreigners, who got warning in time to get
away. The Roman Catholic sisters barely
escaped being massacred on masse, several
being severely injured. As in former cases,
telegraph officials refused to send away
dispatches for foreigners for two or
three days. Three days after the riot, when
all possible damage had been done, the
military mounted guard over the ruins.' In
Hangow things are stirring again and there
was a large gathering of the anti-foreign
element there yesterday, attended by a
number of officials. They resolved that for
eigners must be driven from the central
provinces. The missionaries at Wochanug
have received threatening placards order
ing them to leave at once or be extermin
ated. The taotal inspected the nunnery to
day, making search for the bones, eyes, etc.,
of children said to have been murdered by
the sisters. Later advices from lchang, say
it is feared a numberof children in the con
vent were burned to death. The leaders
of the mob carried gunpowder and oil,
with which to fire the buildings looted.
THE LAST JOUICNEY.
Taken by the Late Leader or the Cause of
LoNDON, Oct. 10.-An enormous concourse
of people surrounded Wnlsingham terrace
this morning when the casket containing
the remains of the late Charles Stewart
Parnell was taken from the house. The
route of the funeral prooession to the rail
road station was lined with masses of peo
ple, who silently and respectfully watched
its passage. Mrs. Parnell was utterly un
able to accempany the remains to Dublin;
Rhe'was too ill to undertake the journey.
There was a terrible scene in the house
when the casket was about to be removed.
The grief of Mrs. Parnell was mest
poignant, and she could with difficulty be
persuaded to allow the coffin to be taken
away. As a mark of respect to the dead,
the blinds of many houses along
the route of the funeral procession
were drawn down. On every side there
were.-vigne of sincere sympathy. As the
herse passed them, despite the down-pour
bsg rain, spectators took of their hats and
stood oneovpred until the last carriage had
fpuuIP 7 ..A doireearrie followed the
e.a Th rtained f. Diekianen
Parnell's siltr, Henry Parnell and John
Redmond and a numblr of other members
of parliament, the deputation from Dublin
corporation and the leadership committee,
also in carriages. At the railroad station
at Brighton the funeral party waited an
hour, the building being packed with peo
ple anxlous to get a glimpse of the casket.
When the train containing the body of
Parnell arrived at Illeaden, a great crowd
rushed towards the carriage, The coffn
was temporarily uncovered and people
passed in single ile through the carriage.
Many persons in line were observed to be
moved to tears. Delegates from several
branches of the London league placed
wreathes upon the bier. Mrs. Parnell's
wreath was visible at the head of the casket.
It bore in letters beautifully and artistical
ly formed of flowers the words, "To my
own ,true, loving husband my king."
The Belfast contingent will occupy a
prominent place in the Parnell funeral. A
procession carrying a huge wreath with the
'red hand" of Ulster worked in red flowers
in the center, and the words "Murdered"
and "tevenge" in red and purple flowers
respectively at the top and bottom
At Dublin the funeral preparations are
all completed. Chaplain Vincent, of the
Rotunda hospital, has been selected as off
ciating olergyman at the grave. Arrange
ments are so secure that the entire proceed
ings will be executed with dignity and that
nothing can occur to mar the solemnity of
the occasion. The police have taken all
measures necessary for preserving public
LoNnox, Oct. 10.-The Standard publishes
a communication in regard to the recent so
called aggressive action of Russia in
Pamir, which says: "It is high time for
England to unsheath her sword in Asia.
The Russian tide of conquest, which has
flowed steadily eastward for fifty years,
must be sent sweeping back to the Caspian.
Russia has boldly pushed on until she now
stands at the very outposts 6f India."
The Standard, in a leading editorial com
menting upon this communication, says it
has no liking for "scares" and that its pur
pose is "not to suggest alarm but to enforce
the necessity of firmness and vigilance,"
adding, "there is no question of hostilities;
but if it were possible to conceive a struggle
for supremacy in Asia it should be in
Pamir. It would be an easy matter for our
Indian authorities to pull down the eagle
which in ill-timed Chauvinism a Cossack
commander hoisted in the wilderness. The
game of 'bounce' has so far been played
with success, but there is a limit beyond
which it cannot be pushed.. The signal
for retreat should be given when the cabinet
of St. James speaks clearly on the subject."
Funeral of Wm. Henry Smith.
LONDON, Oct. 10.-The body of the late
Rt. Hon. Wi. Henry Smith, conservative
leader in the commons, was removed this
morning from Walmer castle, near Deal,
on route to Hambledon, Oxfordshire,
where it will be interred. Crowds waited
outside the precincts of Westminister ab
bey for an hour in a pouring rain to witness
the arrival and departure of celebrities.
All the royal families were represented by
proxies, and the abbey was packed to the
doors. Alriiostevery noted politician was
present, and a special section has been re
served for the diplomatic corps, who were
all in attendance. Signs of mourning for
the death of Mr. Smith were very gen
eral in London. to-day, especially in the
Strand, where a number of stores were
closed and flags everywhere were half
masted. The last services over the dead
took place in the parish church of Hamble
don, and were of the most simple descrip
tion. The body was interred in Green
lands cemetery, which was presented to the
village by the dead man.
Wanted to Marry the Singer.
LoDnow, Oct. 10.-At the Westminister
police court to-day Nicholas Darlonton
Pickett, an organist and professional sin
ger, claiming to be a native of the United
States and the son of a clergyman, was
charged with sending libelous and menase
ing letters to Miss McIntyre, the singer.
During the prisoner's examination at the
police court, it was shown for the past two
years he has been deluging Miss McIntyre
with letters proposing marriage, and threat
ening to kill her unles she consented.
After some further testimony had been
given the accused was committed for trial.
32.000,000 Starving Peasants.
ST. PETERSBURo, Oct. 10.-Senator Bare
nof estimates that no fewer than 32,000.000
of peasants in Russia are now destitute and
must be provided for the next ten months.
It will require 320,000,000 pounds of grain
to feed them. Owing to the difficulty of
obtaining fodder for cattle the export of
linseed cake from Rushia is prohibited.
The famine in the Volga valley has caused
widespread sickness among the hunger suf
fering inhabitants of that district. Thou
sands of unfortunate peasants are already
prostrated by typhus fever.
Estlmate of Crops.
LONDON, Oct. 10.-The Times to-day pub
lishes a final estimate of the state of crops
in Great Britain, and says it anticipates
bad and indifferent quality. The real state

be worse than of reernt years, but in many
districts crops will be the worst in forty

A HEARING ON- MONDAY.
Henry Clark and His Female Com.

Charlie Miller Changes Apparel
and Becomes a Woman
What e, sllslter in Minasaepotlls as to
say About the Wayward and Unfor
When Henry Clark and "Charlie" Miller
were taken into Judge Sanders' court yes
terday mnorning for arraignment, it would
have been impossible to tell from the man's
demeanor that he ever knew the woman.
Judge Sanders read the complaint, whioh
charged Henry Clark and "Birdie' Miller
with highway robbery, the victim being T.
F. tinhardson, and the article taken a gold
watch of the value of $20.
"Do you understand it?" the judge asked
of Clark. "Will we proceed now with the
examination or do you want it continued?"
"Can't you give me time to think over it?"
S"There is no use to think over it," put in
the woman. "I want to get through with
it as soon as possible."
Judge Sanders set the preliminary hear
ing for Monday morning at 10 o'clock.
Later on the girl secured counsel in the
person of J. W. Kineley, who had a long
talk with her in her cell. She told him
everything, and, according to the story,
Clark ruined her at the point of a revolver,
and has forced her to do his bidding ever
since through the same influence. Lawyer
Kinsley will ask for a separate trial for her
and will not defend Clark under any cir
cumstances. He has forbidden her to talk
with anyone, but has asked a number of
charitable ladies to call on her and try to
divert her mind from her situation. She
asked her lawyer not to notify her people
of her disgrace. Her father, Peter Fore
land, lives at a place named Majkapikr, in
"Charlie" Miller became Helen Forelund
yesterday by putting off boy'delothiuR and
attiring herself as a woman. The determi
nation to continue a boy seems to have
disappearted with a night's reflection.
Marshal Bims got the female apparel'for
her. The dress was a gray cashmere with
the conventional high shoulders. A white
handkerchief was fastened over the little
window of the cell while the transformation
was going on. When the change was made
the door was opened. The boy had disap
peared and instead there was a woman, and
a rather pretty one, too, but for the short
hair. The prisoner loomed up rather large
in her new raiment, and acted somewhat
awkwardly. The first thing she did was to
walk aoross the room. As she did so the
dress and other apparel rustled. The
woman turned around -hastily and then
recognizing the familiar sound, -laughed
and said, "I thought something was
Next came the shoes. Several pairs had
been brought up for trial, but the woman's
feet had grown out of shape from flounder
ing around so long in another style of foot
gear. Finally she got on a pair that she
could wear with some comfort. They fitted
all right about the instep, but would not
meet about the 'ankles. An attempt to
make them do so resulted in a shower of
shoe buttone against the wall.
"Now, I want a hat," she said.
"All right," said the marsehal. "We will
get you one in time for the trial."
Policeman Grogan is getting along very
nicely, and the indications all point to his
recovery from the wound made by Clark.
A WAYWARDI) DAUGHTER
The Girl's Story as Told bv Her Sister In
ST. Piii; r t. 10. - LSpecial.] -Mrs.
Emma Colden, the wife of Andrew
Colden, a painter living in Minne
apolis, is a sister of Helen Forslund,
now under arrest at Helena for robbery.
Mrs. Colden, when told the news by a re
porter to-day, seemed much troubled and
could hardly keep back the tears as she told
the story, as far as she knew, of her sister.
It appears that the girl, who was the beauty
of the family, lived in Minneapolies with
her parents three years ago. She was much
admired, but was always a little wild and
wayward, although nothing was ever said
against, her character. Her parents had
moved out near Spokane Falls, in Washing.
ton, and had taken her with them, but she
did not remain at home long, preferring to
shift for herself. Her sister' states that
none of the family have ever heard of the
man Clark, or of her running away with
anyone. For a long time the family was
much worried that they did not hear from
her, but felt more relieved when a letter was
received two months ago from the wayward
daughter. She is the only unmarried child, r
and has always had a good home with her
parents awaiting her. The family will do
all they can to assist her in her troubles.
Refused to Stop Wihen Ordered.
C. A. Grissinger reports that while driv
ing up Helena avenue about half past nine
o'clock last night a man on the sidewalk
called to him to stop and drew a revolver
from his trousers pocket. Mr. Grissiunger
did not stop, but gave the horse free rein
and let him run. He does not know whether
the fellow shot after him or not, as the
horse and bunspy made quite a noise. Ile
says ho first saw the man running acrors
the lots from the direction of Montgomery's
stable and thought he was trying to catch
a street car, though there Wits none in
sight. As the man reached the sidewalk he
was just at the horse's head.

in the manner of dealing with
the young-the beginners in law-breaking.

complement of men on board. Immedi
ately after leaving Now York the steamship
ran into foul weather. There was a bad
wind and an ugly sea running. It was de
cided to keep the steamship under
the coast, thus to escape the bad
weather. A bad fog came up
with nightfall, and so the Despatch slowed
down considerably. although even at that
she was going at a fair speed. The weather
continued to grow worse, and the vessel
struck a head wind. Immediately the sea
swept her about with broadsides on the
shoals. The Despatch's commander im
mediately let go anchors, but they did not
strike until after the waves had beat her
well upon the shor.le

on the Briggs Case-Trynlug to Oust
ANACONDA, Oct. 10.- - Speoial.] --The
most interesting feature of the meet
ing of the Montana presbytery to
day was the report of Peter Koch,
3f Bozeman. commissioner from Mon
tans to the general assembly at Detroit
last May. Mr. Koch voted with the friends
and followers of Dr. Briggs and gave his
reasons for so doing at some length. An
animated discussion followed, showing that
the Presbyterians of Montana are not of
one mind regarding the famous Dr. Briggs
case. The debate, while spirited, was con
ducted with entire good nature. During
the delivery of the reports from the differ
ent churches Rev. Mr. May, of the Central
church, Helena, asked the presbytery to
define the status of that church and its
property. In the rather sharp discussion
that followed it was alleged in effect that
the Central church was built to boom cer
tain real estate north of the Northern Pa
cific depot. The matter was referred to a
committee, consisting of Rev. Messrs.
Moore and May. of Helena, and Groenveld,
of Butte, who will endeavor to come to an
understanding regarding the best disposi
tion of the property. To-day's programme
embraced addresses by Rev. James Reid, of
Deer lodge; Thomas Weir, of Granite,
and Mrs. W. E. Cox, of Helena, whose
subject was the teacher's work outside the
school. To-nightwas devoted to a mission
ary meeting, with addresses by Rev. A. R.
CraWford and others.

W\ASHINGTON, Oct. 10.-A telegram was
received at the treasury department to-day
from Mr. Be Young, of San Francisco, say
ing that the property selected as a site for
the public building is a quagmire, and that
it will require more than $1,000,000 to lay
the foundation for the building. Secretary
Foster said that this was the first intima
tion he had received that there was any
thing wrong with the site selected, and
could scarcely believe the statement nase
much as it was recommended by a special
commission charged with such matters, as
by both the two senators of the state, repre
sentatives from the city, Mr. Orooker and
many others whom he naturally supposd
were thoroughly familiar with the locality.
The secretary said the site was seleot.g
mainly on the recommendation of the per
sons named and because it contained 50 per
cent. more ground than any other of the
sites offered. Secretary Foster added that
Postmaster General Wanamaker did not
recommend the site, which was selected by
the commission, but an entirely different
one, on elevated ground.

directed the secretary of state to protest to
the Chinese government against the suff

and to say that you had terminated the
correspondence by peremptory resignation.

found nothing that in any degree reflects
