man sssiitlciiu il as having been too closely asso?

his conduct. The others blamed for the same
reason by the c. mmtsston are these Deputies:

Disgraceful gCeDea followed thc departure cf

done on every side. The visitors groaned, hissed
and cheered, and refused to obey th- ojueetors1
orders to leave the scene. At lf< o'clock the
electric light was turned off. The scuffling
and vllllfying in the Chamber ended abruptly
and the Deputies hastened to the street.
An Immense crowd had gathered outside, for
the news of the tumult in the Chamber had
spread throughout the neighborhood. All the
Opposition Deputies were cheered as they ap?
peared. Fredrlco Colajannl, a Socialist leader
and the most determined mover for an Investi?
gation of the bank scandals, was received with
wild enthusiasm. In reply to the acclaims of
the great crowd he shouted from the steps:
"You are faint-hearted! You have no convic?
tions, if you had, you would put the torch t"

King Humbert. A council of Ministers will be
held In the morning. The resignation of the
Cabinet seems Inevitable. Signor ZanardeUI ls

parently precludes all possibility of his forming
a Ministry, although ix-fore this evening he had
been regarded as sure of succeeding Gioiitti.

THOU DEXOTJXt BS THE BOCIAUSTS.
Paris. Nov. zs.?M. Lockroy, Radical Re
publlcan, opened the debate In the chamber of
Deputies to-day on the Governments demand
for a vote of confidence. He described the pre?
ceding sitting, at which thc Government an
nounced Its programme, as an oratorical tourna?
ment between Government Republicans and
revolutionary politicians. Between thant, he
said, there was room for a genuine Republican
policy. The part which Prims Minister Dupuy
renounced the Socialists wera not able to per?
form. M. Lockroy then proceeded to contrast
the former parties, and met with boisterous
interruptions. When he declared that the Mon?
archists had been disarmed he became sarcas?
tic, and siid to three members who interrupted
him: "You are the only Royalists left."
Continuing, he said that the declarations mada
by Prime Minist-i Dupuy meant \\;\r against
the Republican party. The programme was
more like one for a monarchy than a republic.
It was a negation of a democratic-republican
policy, it was a negation of even Gambetta'a
programme. M. Lockroy reproached th" Min?
isters for the absence of common accord in the
Cabinet. Some of th.- men holding ministerial
positions h.-nl formerly advocated a revision of '
Gie Constitution, an in"'me tax ami the BSpars
thin of Church and Slate. To keep their pla.es
they had abandoned whatever honor their
political lives had ever had. The Cabin"' was j
following a policy which would lead to an ?s>
plosion of revolutionary Socialism. A sound
policy was impossible with such a hetemgene >ua
Ministry, th" aim of \rlm h was to conceal the
absence of a programme by Haunting th"
spectre of international Socialism.
At this point MM. .Wurde, Ja urea and Baudin,
all Socialists, rose, yelling wildly.
M. Deachanel, Union Republican, also in'er
rupted the speaker, saying: "There are anti
patriots in the ChambeV."
This cuised further uproar, and M. Lockroy
left the tribune, amid the applause -<f the Ex?
treme Radicals. Non.- of ile' other members
M. Barttou, Independent Progressist, followed
M. Lockroy. !!?? ssked M. Peytral, Minister of
Finance, to explain his change of front on th
Income tax question. Continuing. M. Barthou
denounced the Socialists snd criticised their
programme. What the country needed, he sahl,
was practical reform and not fantastic dreams.
M. Chautemps appealed verb eely to the Re
publlcana to unite agalnat the Socialists who
menaced th" republic. M. Deschanel spoke in
support Of Premier luipuy's programme. Th"
Chamber th-ii adjourned until Saturday.

Course, lt was <lim. Ult for her to manoeuvre so
as to sscape severe punishment at times from

the meagre statement of fact contained in the

result of an accidental shot, probably ft shell,
finding its way through a weak ap >t and burst?

Pittsburg, Nov. :::!.-Additional Information
about the new' steel rail \.I shows it to be more
complete Mian was at first suspected. In addi?
tion to leasing the steel rail plant at Sparrow's
Point, Md., the new |.I has also leased the
Pennsylvania steel Company'a plant at Bteel
ton. Penn. Those two plants will be kept closed
Indefinitely, the Carnegie and illinois companies
having t!ic Western trade allotted to them, and
thc Bethlehem, Cambria and Lackawanna linns
the Eastern. In contrast to the statement made
mad- by Secretary Lovejoy of the Carnegie
Company, that the combine has no legal exlst
n ???. and that there never had been an agree?
ment on prices, th*1 following statement from a
mun who knows ls mada to-night:
"When Andrew Carnegie some years ago made
his debut In the steel rull market lt was said
that he desired to cause a change In the method
of handling lt. This was not an easy task, and
with so strong a competitor as the Illinois Steel
Oom pa ny lt waa necessary to reach an amicable
understanding with thia and other strong con
? ens. Thts was done, and nothing of much
consequence occurred for years to mar the
serenity of affairs. Then Mr. Carnegie in?
creased th.' sire of his steel rall mill at Brad?
dock, and this meant 'Increased production.
Slowly but surely his position In the steel rall
market was becoming stronger and stronger.
As a tlnul move Mr. Carnegie about four years
or so ago surprised every ona, even his com?
petitors, by announcing that he had purchased
the ateel plant of tba Alloghany Bessemer Oom
; any at Duquesne. This addition proved an?
ther big curd, and Carnegie stoi k, so far as
steel rails w tc concerned, went above par
"At Mle same tim.- the Illinois Sled Company
kept agog with the times, and lt was a nlp-and
tuck affair You must remember tba* the
Smith Chicago St.cl rall mill i I' the Illinois
Company ls still ahead -f Carnegie'a Braddock
plant The South Chicago plant hus a record
i t 34,000 tons a month, While the highest al
Braddock was 34.000. VVhen the other manu?
facturers i" ame aw.ir- .-r carnegie's power in
the market a i lose c. imMne was formed, and
although what I am about tu say may h" de?
nied, lt is true that there was an understanding
that each linn Uguie in Mi- division of profits
<>n orders for steel rails. For Instance, if the
Carnegie company secured a big order, the
profit-sharing scheme had to be carried ont,
and so I' was when the other linns secured
the orders, it was thia arrangement that k"pt
the rates for steel rails so high Not a linn
In the combine would underbid another,
knowing that Mi.- orders would necessarily have
lo lie placed with som.- one of them. 1 know
of an Instance where a railroad company let
an Immense contract fm- steel rails to the Il?
linois Company, and in the contract there was
a Special clause that the entire order be worked
at the South Chicago plant. This stipulation
was mad" for several reasons, prominent among
them being that the inspection there ls more
strict, and, secondly, that the railway officials
did not want th.' Illinois Company to divide
its work with other linus in the combine."
The production of th" pool for the first ats
months of ISM was .'ol.^si tons of steel rails,
div'.!.,| as follows: Bethlehem Iron Company,
35.1W ton-: Cambria iron and Steel Company,
14,330; Carnegie Steel Company. Limited. Hg,.
54S; Illinois Steel Company, IM.4SS; Lackawanna
[mt) and Steel Company, 14,023; Pennsylvania
Steel Company, 21.501. The new leased con?
cerns, which will b? s'mt down by the pool, em?
ilio' about o.ooo nen. Under the new pool
there arlll be ? radical change from the allot?
ment system Ur>N*ll was In vogue under the
Steel Ball Assoc1 ullin, windi was formed In
lss7: at least, such is the venera! belief of brok?
ers who have inside information. In is9o. with
? total i.luctlon ol l,JSs.iai tons of rails, the
allotment was as follows: Bethlehem. Cam?
bria, Lackawanna. Scranton and .Maryland, s
PCT cell! cadi; Carnegie and Illinois, combined.
57 per cent. It will be seen that the new pool
differs In living a minim.un price of $24 a ton
al present, and it i? atated that a penalty has
been figed for rate-cutting. The new allot?
ment of the pool win be more territorial than
was the former It is understood that the
Hoard of Control will regulate the production
as well. None of the officials of the Carnegie
Steel Company will discuss the pool.

the following Reuter dispatch, contained In the
Issue of "The New-Zealand Herald " published
a't Auckland on November 4:
"Washington, Nov. 2?President Cleveland

had received from advisers In Washington.
Prominent Annexatlonlsts were equally posltlvs
that the dispatch was a canard. One Annexa

Whatever may be the facts about this brief
dispatch, it has added to the high political feel?
ing. Every one ls on the qui vive, and the air
is thick with rumors. Some prominent An
nexationists have conceived the idea that the
Royalists are playing a deep game by claiming
support of the Administration, and that they
ar" really planning a coup which will give them
control of the Government Huilding. If they
could hold this control for an hour. Minister
Willis would be aide to recognize them, and to
order the American marines to protect them]
from assault. To guard against any such at?
tempt the Government Building guard has been
strengthened and scores of dead rllle-shots
have been posted In various parts of the build?
ing. With this new guard lt will require a
strong force to carry the place. This action
was not taken after the news came from New
Zealand, but before, and it was due to rumors
of a Royalist plot to surprise the Government.
WILLIS RELYING OX FORCE.
Minister Willis ls as secretive as Blount, and
no hint of his Instructions has been given out.
The only occasion on which he hus talked
freely was when he replied to the address of a
committee of the American League, an organi?
zation of prominent business men. He told
them, but bound all present to secrecy, that
nothing which occurred on the Islands could
change his orders. The American policy had
!.n decided on, and he was merely the instru?
ment to carry lt out. However, they might rest
assured that lt would be one which no American,
would regret. He said emphatically that no
power would be permitted to Interfere with the
currying out of his orders, and though he did
not say in so many Words that he would use
the marines, there is no question*that this is
his reliance. In case he does, the Provisional
Government will be put In Ihe position of light?
ing the i'nlted States or retiring Mom power.
Some of the mora conservative Royalists be?
lieve that Willis means to seat the Quean, and
then lope her to abdicate in favor of Kalulanl,
the heir-apparent. Davies, the Princess's guar?
dian, is working here to accomplish this, but he
has rn ide little headway. Bvery effort ls being
made hy the Royalists t<> dragoon the natives
into support of the Queen. Here is the latest
threat [Hinted in a native paper, the "Ka Leo,"
whick is the Queen'a organ:
