SOCIALISTS* fEI.EHRATE THE
GOVERNMENTS FALL.
Tarls, Nov. H?President Carno: conferred
With M. Casimir-Pcrler. President of the Cham?
ber, last evening, and offered him the Premier?
ship. * Casimlr-Perier refused tn accept the
offer and moot-mended Dupuy. This noorat?n
the conference was repeated, M. Carnot still
urging; Caslmlr-Perler to form a Cabinet, and the
President of the Chamber still declining In
favor of the last Premier. Finally Carnot
sent for Dupuy. His invitation wai curtly de?
clined. M. Dupuy was sn chagrined by his ex?
perience yesterday that he would not even con*.
sent to consult with the President.
At 2:30 O'clock kt M.-line, the French McKin?
ley, went to the president, in response to a sum?
mons for an interview. He was requested to
form a Cabinet, bu. lie would not consider the
matter. At the present Juncture, he said,
Dupuy was thc only possit,le Premier. Later in
the afternoon IL Caslmir-Perier called upon
M. Dupuy and besought him to form the new
Cabinet, kt Dupuy persisted in his refusal.
At M. Carnot's mqnett M. Challemel-I-acour,
President of the Senate, i ailed upon M. Dupuy
early this evening and tried to persuade him
to form a Cabinet. Dupuy refused uncondi?
tionally to do so. lt is believed that the crisis
Will continue through Ike iv, ck.
The President's offer of the Premiership to
Caslmir-Perier is regarded as a political trap.
The President of the Chamber ts known to have
hopes of securing the Presidency of the Re?
public next year. It is reasonably certain that
the Ministry formed now will fall before the
election, and a fallen Premier is always out of
the race for the Presidency. Carnot s idea was,
lt ls said, V- make Casimir-Perier the victim of
this course of events.
The Socialists held a large meeting this after?
noon to celebrate the fall of the Government.
Deputy Juarez said that the Socialists won yes?
terday their first great parliamentary victory.
He regretted only that he would be unable to se?
lect the Cabinet to succeed the one he had helped
to overthrow. He disavowed any intention to
overthrow ministries merely for the pleasure of
demoralizing the Government He demanded.
however, that the ministries should observe a
benevolent neutrality. No Cabinet which tried
to Ignore or bailie the Socialists, as it Dupuy
would have don**, would be allowed to exist.
Deputy Millerand also addressed the meeting.
Hereafter debate in the Chamber of Deputies, he
aald. would be regulated by the Socialists.

Rome, Nov. 2f>?King Humbert har' a long in?
terview to-day with Signor Crispl. Th? ex-Premier
discussed the political situation with great frank?
ness. He said that the position of the (lovern
ment was exceedingly grave and that Ulolltti
was greatly to be blanc! for the difficult turn
of affairs. After Crisp) had gone away ex-Pre?
mier di Rudinl and Admiral Hrln, last Minister
of Foreign Affairs, were received by King Hum?
bert. The King's plan is to take no decisive
steps until after he shall have obtained the opinions
of the most conspicuous statesmen. Those whom
he baa already talked with showed that they wen
not eager to undertake ihe responsibilities and
perils of office at this time. Everybody is timid,
believing the storm ls only half over.
, In documents relative to the bank Investigations
tbe etatement was made that the banks of It-sue
subsidised newspapers and Journalists. The gen
'eral publication of this statement will create fr< *-h
indignation and may possibly lead to the revela?
tion of more corruptness.
COMMENTS OF THE PARIS PRESS.

GESTIONS FOR A NEC. CAISINET.
Paris, No. M.?The "SoAt," which su**r>orts Dupuy
snd ls supposed to draw a subsidy from the
secret service fund, last night in a leader headed
"PeytraPs Treason" dlacuaeed the ex-Minister of
Finance as follows: "Been M. Peytral's friends
must from th* bottoms of th*ir hearts despise this
man, who m ide himself consciously an Instrument |
of the Radicals. His conduct ls equally detestable
from the governmental point of view and from
that of common bonest-r. As h>- rt lm fief il with
his colleagues as to the income tax, he ought tc.
have* resigned before Parliament mt."
T"he 'Temps" sa>.-- of the situation: "The
present crisis is the natural result of lt Carnot.
neglect to replace the old Cabinet with a new
homogeneous one."
The "Debate" says. The country ls tired of
Ministries formed by the concentration of hetero?
geneous Republican elements."
The "Libert." expresses this opinion: "The
Ministry fell; it was not overthrown. This will
creatv* a -"e-gre-tteble Impression. A moderate
homogeneous I'ablnet with M. Dupuy's programme
ls what is now needed "
BLAMING BOTH CARNOT AND DUPUY.
London, Nov. 27.?The I'arls correspondent of
"The Times" says:
"The responsibility for the crisis falls primarily
upon Pre.-i-i'i.t Carnet fer his obstinate adhesion
to the enncentiatioa policy, and aeoo?dly upon
M. Dupuy for his complaisance |n the mme policy.
The latter might have resign.-1 when Carnot re?
fused to abandon the policy whleta was condemned
at the last elections Th-- President'i attitude \*
dictated by his anxiety for re-election to ih<- Presi?
dency and his desire not to offend the Radicals or
Socialists."

Philadelphia. Nov. "S.-The feeling In this city ls
that the Lehigh Valley strike cannot last much
longer. Both sides are still Arm. The leaders of the
strike are cheerful and confident, and say they
are encoura*?-*.l. hut the fact remains that the
company ls steadily gaining in the matter of men
and more trnlns are being mored .-very day. Act?
ing (Jencral Manager Voorhees, In an Interview
regarding the appeal for troops to go to Sayre, said
the situntlon there was peculiar. When the Sher?
iff telegraphed to the governor for troops he said
the strikers knew it In fifteen minutes. They con?
sulted a lawyer, and on his advice demited the
switches and yards, which had been practically
under their control. In relation to the matter
of connecting roads accepting freight and other
business. Mr. Voorhees said that as common car?
riers they were obliged to do so under the law,
and the Lehigh system would not h.- embarrassed
In that respect. Nearly all of the Lehigh Valley
officials are out along th. line looking after the
movements of trains.
The attention of strikers has been called to a
bill passed by the last Legislature, providing fur thc
settlement of disputes between workingmen and
employers hy arbitration. The bill provides for tbe
appointment of a board 'if arbitration of nine per
sons, three to be appointed by each side of the
controversy and three by the Court of Common
Pleas having Jurisdiction Where tbs trouble ar!-.*
Either party can make application lo th" court
for arbitration, and If the other side does no;
appoint its three arbltntors the court can appoint
six. The board has power to send for persona and
papers, and any ref?Bal to answer questions ls mad ?
a misdemeanor punish,H> l.y a fine of BM and
thirty days' Imprisonment The board hies its
finding with the court. Theil i1* BC .'impulsion on
either party to yield to the ,.th<r. The object ls to
lay the true fact* before the public in th.- I,, lief
that If they show the employes to be wron'-r public
opinion will coerce them into a settlement, ani
vice versa.

dispersed the crowd.
At Sugar Notch, three miles from Wllkesbarre,
there was more or less excitement this sfternm :i
A motley gang Of men and boys gathered and
made all sorts of threats against the men who
were at work. The most unruly of Ike Crowd
threw stones through th<- windows of the station
and compelled the operator to lb, for his life. As

this episode delayed the running of I rn Ins for
c-nlie a time.
At 6 o'clock to-night two lone frc|j-ht trains
were signalled to stop at the llarie-st. crossing

with the strikers assembled at the crossing and
when the trains came to a stop the two engineers,
firemen and crew were hooted and the crowd
yelled "Gel off the engines, you scabs; give bones!
workmen a show!'' No violence, however, was
offered and the trains pulled out In safety on
their northern Journey.
An attempt was made by an unruly crowd this
afternoon tn drive a shifting crew from their
engine on one of the Lehigh Valley branches, near

Mary Hooker, a pretty little brunette, nineteen
years old, and employed as a servant In the
family of A. I,. Doll. No. Ml West Seventleth-st.. ls
lying In the hospital of tho New-York Polyclinic
with a broken back, and will in all probability
recover. This astounding result will be due mainly
to the skill of Dr. It. H. M. Dawbarn, of No. 105
\v.*st Ba-ranljr fourth st, who le professor of sur?
gery In the Polyclinic, and his assistants. Dr. Hibbs,
the house surgeon, and Dr. lleyden.
The circumstances which led to the accident are
of a by no means unusual character. Just before
2 o'clock yesterday afternoon Mary stood by the
dumb-wait r shaft. In the rear of the kitchen and
tried to reach the sliding door, which had slipped
fruin her hand and glided upward. She ls short and
plump and could not reach lt. She mounted a chair,
stretched out her hand, and the chair, probably
because Ibe stood on Its extreme edge, tipped
forward. There was a piercing scream, followed
by a resounding thump, which came from the base?
ment of the house. The girl had fallen foremost
down the shaft, and struck the ground in a sitting
posture. When Mr. Doll, the Janitor, and the ten?
ants ranched her sids she was as she had fallen, In
a sitting posture, with her back against the wall
of the shaft She was conscious, moaning piteously,
and at the attempt of Mr. Doll to raise her to
her feet shrieked with pain. Dr. Dawbarn had
already received a call and was hurrying to the
house. In his hasty examination of the girl he
noticed a slight protuberance or curvature in the
dorsal vertebrae, just below the fourth cervical
bone. The absence of numbness, and the appear?
ance of the Injury told him that although her back
had been broken there was Just a chance to save
li.-r. lie determined to take the chance.
A Roosevelt Hospital surgeon was now assist?
ing bim, and. under Dr. Daw-barn's direction, the
sufferer was lifted Into the ambulance and placed
in a position that would not further affect the
fracture. Then, with Dr. Dawbarn. she was driven
down to the Polyclinic. Once there, no time was
lOSI In getting to work. An anaesthetic was ad?
ministered, and tbe patient was laid on the operat?
ing-table. Dr. Dawbarn tirst made an Incision in
th,- bark, b.-glnnlng at Um first dorsal bone, and
extending about eight inches. The lapels of the
fl,-*"h thus made wer- turned over and held down
by retractors, and then Dr. Dawbarn made a second
Incision threi> Inch.--, in length, dividing the tissues.
Tin- Injury that the girl had sustained was now
sppgrent. Tne terrific concussion as she struck
rh,- ur.Hind with le?s and spine had made three
distinct fractures of the dorsal bone, but, as Dr.
Dawbarn had supposed, the fracture had noj. ex?
tended to th,- spinal cord. This circumstance may
save th.- Burl's Hf.-. A third Incision, this time
an inch and a half long, and exposing- the mar?
row, was necessary before th** three pieces of
broken bon- could be removed. This was the most
difficult and .bli.-ate of the operations, and lt was
accomplished with complete success Then the
Incisions were sewn together; the girl waa en?
veloped In a plaster oatt, and the operation was
over.
Burly in the evening she recovered consciousness
and was resting in almost entire freedom from
pain. It ls understood that an attempt will be
made to replace the missing pieces of bone. Paraly?
sis of th.- lower limbs may supervene as a result
of tin* operation, but the surgeons are Inclined
to regard with hope the chances of a complete
recovery.

Washington. Nov. 26.?The sugar schedule pro*
posed by the Democratic majority of the Wajrg
and Means Committee, after a long and severe
struggle, ls not one that will be likely to excite
wild enthusiasm among the sugar producers of
the South and West. It probably means that tha
Democratic members were unable to agree among
themselves and were therefore obliged to shift
the responsibility upon the House and Senate.
The retention of any bounty whatever during a
period of eight years, or even one year, would
give the He to every profession and utterance of
the Democratic party on that subject during tko
last three years.
Of the sugar produced in the United States la
1893 about 77 per cent polarized at or above JO de?
grees and received a bounty of 2 cents a pound,
and about 23 per cent polarized above 80 and un?
der 90 degrees and received a bounty of 1*4 cent*
a pound. In 1894, if the recommendation of tha
majority of the Ways and Means Committee
shall be approved, the bounty will be 1% cents
and 117-32 cents a pound on the respective grades,
and will diminish at the rate of Vi and 7-32 of a
cent a year until lt ls extinguished. The total
amount paid in bounties this year was |8,37s,
i:,0SS on 482,125,081 pounds of sugar.
What effect the reduction of the duty on sugar
above No. 16 D. S. will have upon the revenues
from customs lt ls difficult, if not Impossible, to
foresee, but if the action of the majority of the
committee shall be confirmed by the House and
Senate, the necessity of raising a large amount
of revenue from internal taxation will be In
evitable.
The Democratic members have been working
steadily to-day, and they confidently expect to
have the bill completed as to everything ex?
cept the internal revenue provisions by ll
o'clock to-morrow morning, the hour appointed
by Chairman Wilson "to receive" the Repub?
lican members of the committee. Whether the
bill will be disposed of by the committee to?
morrow is more than doubtful. Several of tho
Republican members desire to offer amend?
ments, an.l it is probable that a good many
yea and nay votes will be Ulten In the commit?
tee before a final decision is reached.
Prior to the conference with Secretary Car?
lisle last night lt had been practically decided,
as stated in these dispatches yesterday, to
place an ad valorem duty of 25 per cent on
sugar. The protests from the North and North?
west against any increase in the tax on sugar
were so forcible that at the last moment tha
committee changed front and decided to lower
instead of increasing the sugar duty. But
realizing that this marked divergence from the
a-tion previously indicated as being in con?
templation would affect stocks and values, tho
chairman of the committee authorized the fol?
lowing statement of its action to be made pub?
lic to-night: *
"The I>emoera-tlc members of the Committee
on Ways and Means completed their tariff bill
last night, near midnight, the last Item finally
acted upon being the sugar schedule. It being
brought to their attention that speculators,
falsely pretending to have Information of their
proposed action have been seeking to manipu?
late the stock market, they deemed it best ta
d-part fr.-m their general plan of refusing In?
formation as to tariff items, until their full
bill is made public, and at once to publish their
conclusions on this schedule, so that all men
may stand on the same footing of authentic
information. The new bill to be promulgated
to-morrow will show the following changes In
the sugar schedule: The duty on relined augur
ls reduced from ?s to ty cent a pound. Raw
sugars remain free of tax. The McKinley
bounty ls repealed progressively; that ls, one
eighth each year, so that at the end of eight
years it is to cease entirely."
The exact language of the McKinley bill under
which the sugar bounty is now paid is at
follows:
"That on and after July 1,1891, and until July
1, 1895, there shall be paid from any moneys in
tlie Treasury not otherwise appropriated, under
the provisions of Section :*,689 of the Revised
Statute*., to the producer of sugar, testing not
lem than N degrees by tho polariscope, from
b?ts, sorghum or sugarcane grown within the
United Stales, or from maple sap produced
within the United Stat.-s. a bounty of 2 centa
per pound; and upon such sugar testing lesa
than M degrees by the polariscope, and not less
than N degrees, a bounty of 1% cents per
pound, under such rules and regulations as the
Commissioners of Internal Revenue, with the
approval of the Secretary of the Treasury shall
prescribe."
Th- i cents sugar bounty enacted by the Mc?
Kinley bill would be removed by the Wllarm bill,
If it should become a law, as follows: 1*4 cents
per pound for fiscal year 18?4-95. IVi cents per
pound for fiscal year 1895-96, I1* cents per pound
for tlseal year 1896-97, 1 cent per pound for fiscal
y-.ir IttT-M, % cent per pound for fiscal year
Wt li, Vi ."nt per pound for fiscal year 1899-1900,
% cent per pound for llscal year 1900-1901; and
would cease in the llscal year 1902. The lower
grades would be reduced In like proportion.
According to the report of the Commissioner of
Internal Revenue, the quantity of sugar entitled
to claim bounty, which was In process of eultl
vati n or manufacture on July 1, last, was aa
follows:

The aipount of maple sugar that ls likely ta
be tapped can scarcely be made the subject of
estimate. Over $62,500 was paid out In bounty
for maple sugar In 1892. The number of
licensed maple sugar producers In that year
was 4.240. The number of licenses Increased
this year to 6.095. which of course means an
Increased production.
The change In the sugar schedule, so far aa
can be learned, 's the only startling departure
from the provisions of the proposed bill aa
they have from time to time been permltts*
to leak out.
