Lord Salisbury, in bis ein-ecli upon the
occasion of ttie banquet of tl.e Lonl Mavor
of London last night, and tlieoffiii.il state

up everjthlng of an ofllcial diameter
that is known here in regard to the Eastern
situation. The reticence or our foreign
offtce remains nearly absolute and no
Information con'vevhig the slightest idea
of the general position is permitted to
leak out
Since Austria, under the approval of
Germany, entered the European concert,
the semi-official press sajs, the situation
has cleared up very materially. The
Sultan knows Austria's power and dls
pobition to take immediate action and
dreads that more than any other thing
that has yet menaced him and in conse
quence, these papers assert, is prepared
to eoncedeanythingthat may be demanded
of the Porte.
GERMANY'S ATTITUDE.
Although Gennany has Joined the Euro
pean League, she certainly has not com
mitted herself to any project contemplating
a European protectorate oer Turkey, the
occupation of Aimenia by Russia, or any
otlur scIkuic which would Involve any
interference at the present time with the
powers of the Sultan within his, own
domains, and the North German Gazette
declares that the Christian inhabitants
of Turkej in the meantime will be in no
wise endangered.
The correspondent of the Tageblalt in
Constantinople telegraphs to his paper
that he is In n position to arfirtu that no
warlike complications are likely to arise
from the Armenian troubles and behind
this roothiiig seml-oKIi-lal amnion re
mains a combination of unexplained facts
suggesting that It is the intention of
Germany to play thcpartotthclionestbrokcr
In the matter. The principal one of thee
facts is the action of Count Goluchowskl,
the Austrian secretary of state for .foreign
affnirs. In first making overtures to Lord
Salisbury, calling attention to the fact
thatlt would greatly strengthen theposition
ot England if the Triple Alliance should
be taken into the Alliance of Tower on the
Turkish question under conditions that Aus
tria would Institute operations if required
to protect the Macedonian population,
Austria's geographical position enabling
her to do so at a moment's notice.
ENGLAND TO JOIN THE DKEIBUND.
The assent ot the English premier to this
virtual proposal was obtained under Lonl
Balisbarv's conviction that England would
require a strong backing against the coali
tion of Russia and Trance when the time
ihouldarrivefor the partitioning of Turkey.
In view of all tbl, while peace reigns for
the moment under cautious ministerial ut
terances, nobody believes that the Turk
will be able to weather the crisis, which
confront him, very much longer. It Is
thought thatparamonntlnterestln thepres

pursued will lorcc England Into the Drei

seize advantages from the central European
coalition without committing herself to
anything, but the time has come when she
Is confronted with the alternative of choice
between fatal isolation and a definite union
with the continential powers.

France would not go very far merely to help

EMl'EUOIt WILLIAM AND PRINCE
HENRY.
The Emperor has been shooting on the
estates of Count Von Wc'dc-M'ie-sdorf, chief
of the imperial household, at Tlesdorf, and
Prince Henry ot Trussia and his wife,
Trincess Irene, it is announced, will spend
the coming winter in Italy. Consequently
they will not be able to appear at court
this season
As the rumors of discord between the
Emperor and his brother are likely to bo
revived because of the lattcr's absence. It
is given o it that the reason for his absence
is the deiicatestateof health ot the princess,
which statement is partly true. The Em
peror will review the naval recruits at
Kiel about the middle of December and
has promised to go to Buda Pesth to be
present at the Honved Millennial celebra
tions. The projected international exhibition
In Berlin in 1600 has been found Impossible
because of the project of the Gennau Na
tional Exhibition, which the managers
thereof endeavored to substitute for 'the
International Exposition. That scheme,
however. Is also failing, and has so far
dwindled into a mere Berlin trades and
art treasury exhibition.
HIGH AND MIGHTY PERSONAGES.
The head of the management ot the Royal
Opera House has always been regarded as
a high court official, but It appears that the
present incumbent. Count von Hochberg, is
not. The post is a desirable one to a rinical
aristocrat as the dictum of the incumbent is
absolute in dealing with rows betwcen
actors, actresses, singers and others and
therefore the manager Is regarded by him
self and everybody- else as mighty per
sonage. The actual management ot the
opera house has of late drifted into the
bauds of the director, Herr Person, who is
an energetic and refined gentleman and a
tood musician.
It is announced that Count von Hochberg
Is about to be appointed the successor of
Count von Wedel-I'lesdorf as minister of the
Imperial household and that Baron von
Ulolsen, now manager of the Royal Theater
ot Wilsbaden, will succeed Count von Hoch
berg, taking the active management of the
Royal Optra Houso In Berlin. Outsiders
may think that these changes amount to
very little, but they have no idea of the
Interest and importance which aristocratic
circles attach to them. v
The delay of the telegraph In supply
ing Berlin with good reports of Lord Salis
bury's speech at the Mansion House banquet
In London last night has seriously re
tarded the publication of press comments.
Several special correspondents were able
to furnish their papers with summaries
of the speech, but they are not sufficiently
comprehensive to serve as the bases of
clalwrate editorials.
In official circles, however, tho state
ment of the British premier is regarded as
being as explicit as the situation will per
mit and is generally considered satisfac
tory and reaasurlng.
Great Interest has centeraSt In the pro
gress of a trial which occupied the atten
tion of the courts in -Munich Inst week.
The defendants were scleral well-known
dealers in high clacs picture's, who were
accused of receiving mid felling stolen
pictures from the brush of the celebrated
German portrait painter, Franz Lchbaclr,
The court-room was crowded with society
people, artists, etc., who followed the case
with great attention and a large number
of witnesses vvcreexamlned.
One witness, a tailor numed Stendal,
swore that he was an cmateur painter
and had devoted his leisure hours to
painting imitations of Lenbach's portraits
of Trlnce Bismarck, Count von Caprivi,
and other notable persons. One of his
picture's of Gen, Caprivi he had himself
seen sold in the shop of a well-known
and .reputable dealer as a genuine Len
bach. The prosecution was unable to prove
that any of the portraits figuring in the
case were stolen pictures and the jury
last evening brought in a verdict of "not
guilty," When the verdict was announced
the spectators, led by tl e artists present,
cheered the accused picture-dealers and
the cheers were taken up by the public
octsMe as the acquitted dealers left the
court.
A disastrous fire occurred at Otleiisen,
a suburb of Hamburg last night, when
Hictz's machine works and the Sftinle
Conqiapy's tar works weredestroje-d. The
loss is placed at 2,000,000 marks.
MGR. SATOLLI'S SUCCESSOR
Now It Is Monsignor Laurenzelli,
Papal Internuncio at the Hague.
TIN Appointment Said to Ho Due ill
n Mitt mi ro to tho SuEirestlon of
Cardinal Gibbons.
New York, Nov. 10. The Herald sajs:
A cablegram has bien received here by a
high authority to the effect that Pope
Leo has determined upon a successor to
M,rr. Batolll papal delegate to the Hulled
States, in the person of Mgr. Laurenzelli.
at present internuncio nt the Hague, and
he will proceed to this couutry at an early
day in order to b- here before Mr. Batolll
takes his depurlure.
There was considerable surprise excited
lnthearchepiscop-iIpalaceinMadisouavenue
when the contents of the cablegram became
known, for of all the possible candidates
naiiied as a successor to Mcr. Satolli, Mgr.
Laurenzelli was not among thiin.
However, as Mgr. Laurenzelli Is known
as a broad minded man, one who will
follow in the footsteps of his predecessor.
It is felt that the selection Is a peculiarly
fitting one. It is the general understanding
that the appointment is in a measure due
to the advice of Cardinal Glbtions, who
Is In favor of a broad and generous policy
on the part ot the papal representative
in the United States.
Cardinal Giblions went to school with
Mgr. Batolll and was much associated
with him in Rome, and as the cardinal has
been a witness of the success of Mgr.
Satolli in this country he thinks for the
best Interests of the church that It be
continued.
AT Tun LEGATION.
Secretary Slmrcttt Says, They Aro
ignorant or the Appointment.
Mgr. Sntolll, the Apostolic delegate, had
an unusual number of cnllers at his resi
dence yesterday and last evening, who
came to see him regarding the announce
ment lu cstcrday morning's New York
Herald, that ho was soou to be relieved of .
his post here by Mgr. Laurco7eW. at present J
the Papal representative In Holland.
"Archbishop Satolli Is In total ignorance
of the matter outside of this publication,"
said Mgr Ebaretti, of the delegation.
"He has not rcc-eived any word from the
Vatican touching tin.- subject, and con
sequently can neither deny nor confirm
the report. The whole question rests
with the holy father, and In tase he should
see fit to make a change In his representa
tive to this country, it would be his right
to do so.
"When he shall recall Mgr. Satolli, the
latter will go without delay. We do
not, however, and will not, make Inquiries
of the holy see- touching such matters.
Then, jou will see, we are always in ig
norance of the action of the pope until
we are notified by him, and we have not
been In this case'."
Mgr. Ebaretti regards Mgr. Laurenzelli
as an eminent ecclesiastical diplomat, and
he has nothing but praise to say of him.
He was asked If he could tell when Mgr.
Satolli intended to visit Rome, and his
reply was-; "When Pope Leo XIII sends
for him."

"Wo are staying In the Southwest In tho

a Serious Question.
THE CONSTRUCTOR'S REPORT

1 neitide Hut Tv o New Sailing Ships.
Dock- und Yards.
The firt ship ot the new Navy was put
in commission over nine years ago, and ac
cording to the annual report of Chief Con
strue tor Hichborue, the demands for or
dinary repairs on the earlier vessels for the
preservation and for the maintenance of
their equipage in a proper state of ef
ficiency are j early becoming more serious,
and Congress must hereafter make much
larger appropriations for this purpose.
Commodore IIIihbonie,!n his annual report,
dei lares that modern steel ships, with their
extreme sulKIvlioir and elaborate systems
of vtntilatlon. drainage and mechanical
auxillarlesof all kinds, require inue-li greater
care, both w hen in commission and in or
dinary, than was the case with the old
wooden ships.
STEEL SHIPS NOT LASTING.
Neglect is followed by much more serious
and far-reaehlng deterioration, and it is
absolutely essential at nil times that the
most careful supervision should be ex
ere'ised at all times and remedies promptly
applied In order that the efficiency of the
vessels as men of-war may be properly
maintained.
For several years past the construction
bureau has been compelled to economize
nearly to the danger point, being limited
by a repair appropriation ot le-ss than 3
per cent of the original cost of vessels,
while In the British navy the figure varies
from 4 to ft rr cent, the lower figure
appljlng to heavier armored vessels.
Constructor Hicbborn insists that a
million and a half dollars are needed for
this year, where only $000,000 was secured
from Congress for the current year. A
significant feature of Commodore Hich
borne's report Is that he officially recom
mended the construction of only two new
vessels to be authorized by Congress at
the next session instead of the great in
creases to our force of heavy battleships
which was unofficially "uggeste-d bic his
paper read before the Naval Architects
in New York three days ago as being
promptly needed by the navy.
TWO SATT.TN'R VFS5F.T.S.
The vessels he recommends are two
small composite sailing vessels ot 1,100
displacement, to cost only S2C0.000 each.
These it authorized by Congress will be
the first two vessels without steam power
that have been placed in the naval service
for many years- No nrgume-nt regarding
this recommendation is submitted by Con
structor Hichborn.
Commodore Hichborn devotes consider
able space to pointing out the necessity
for greatly Increasing the number of dry
docks at the nnvy yards, the efficiency
of our cruisers being seriously affected
by the difficulties encountered in cleaning
their submerged portions. He recommends
new docks at Portsmouth, New Hampshire,
Boston. Mass.; Mare Island, Cal.; and Nor
folk, Va.
DRY DOCK FACILITIES.
Until the indefinite time In the future
when the big dry docks at New York,
Puget Sound, and Port Royal, are avail
able for deep-draught vessels, the new
battleships must remain undocked. Chief
Engineer Melville and Constructor Hich
born concur in theestluintethat$o,8u5,GT9
must be provided for disbursing next year
on account of the vessels authorized by
the last Congress for which, however,
no appropriations were made.
For repairs on the Chicago, S300.000 is
required, and for the Hartford, $170,000.
Constructor Hichborn renews with em
phasis the request he has frequently made
to Congress for an experimental tank at
the Navy Yard here, to cost about S100,
000, which it Ts proposed to use to test
models of ships before the vessels them
selves are built.

HOW BRITISH ClMlHS GROW
Ex-Senator Edmunds)alks;About
Her Territorial Expansion.
$
Explains tlm Monroei Doctrine and
Hopes the Administration Will
Protect SonthernncpuhllCs.
Philadelphia, Nov. II) An Informal
talk, ns lie calle-d it, wal given last night
by ex-United States Senator George F."
Edmuuds to the members of the L'nion
League Club and their friends on "Inter
national Relations In Central and South
America." The prominent position occu
pied by the speaker for so many years In
the senate, coupled with the present dif
ficulty over the boundary between Vene
zuela und British Uulaua. added more than
the usual Interest to such a discussion.
On a map which was hung alongside the
speaker's platform, senator Edmunds
pointed out the jmssessions vf Great Britain,
which encircled the globe. This great ex
pansion, lie said, was not a conquest of
blood, but of trade, business and English
civilization.
He then gave a history ot the origin ot
the Monroe doctrine. "That doctrine de
clared," he R3id, "that we.would not look
with unconcern (which in my Vermont
dialect means we would nl tolerate) the
interference of any foreign power with
respect to the autonomy or existence of
the American republics. That was the
Monroe doctrine, and It has stood as a
standing menace to all foreign countries
from that time to this."
Senator Edmunds called attention to the
way British claims in Honduras had grown
from almost nothing to seven thousand
square miles. In British Guiana, In 1851,
their claims Included only a few towns,
with no boundary at all given on the
border toward Venezuela. In 1870, this
small claim hail grown to seventy-six thous
and square miles, and in'1892. to one hun-dre-d
and nine thousand squaromlles.
"That is British expansion," he added,
"but I hope arul believe that the Presi
dent and his Seeretay. of Btate w(ll not let
Venezuela be squeezed out ot the mouth
of the Orinoco. I hope tho President
will see that all our Southern neighbors
are protected In theirjust rights."
Senator Edmunds further urged .the
great advantages of the Nicaragua canal
under American control. After referring
to the many majters to lie considered when
discussing annexation, of Cuba.. for In
stance, he paid a "compliment to Presi
dent Cleveland, saying thai no President
had ever been found lacking in patriotism
fa looking after our relations with foreign
countries and "Republican though he was.
he could heartily say that 6r both of Mr.
Cleveland's adrntnistratlonsas would io
douut be demonstrated to all when all the
facts came out. - J

GO V.O'FEII HALL'S ACTION.

About the Ltmenmirjr. Prisoners.
(Special to The TimcO

ordinary action ot Governor O'Ferrall
last night in rescinding the order for the
military escort to the Pollard murderers
to Lunenburg county, nnd disregarding
the order of J udgeOrgain for their appear
unce in his court, has creafi-d deep lute-rest.
He took the ground that as the Governor
of the Stale he was responsible for the
lives of her iitlzi-ns. He believed that
the prisoners, ir returned without military
e-seort, would be surely lynched, and
tliat, if tiie military were sent, a conflict
was likely to occur between them and
the citizens.
He selected the readiejt way out of tLe
difficulty and nt 2 o'ch.Ci in the morning
dispatched a special messenger to Lunen
burg with a courteous letter informing
Judge Orgaln of his aetionand requesting
him to withdraw his order. The case-may
come up in the supTeme court this week,
and whether the prisoners are granted
a new trial or Lave to he hanged, they
will then be returned to Lunenburg. In
either event the Governor says he will
Send a military e-scort.
