Necessity for Joint Action Re
garding Turkey Admitted.
FEAE OF A CATASTROPHE
None of tlio Seiiil-Ofltclnl Tuper,
However, Take archslinUtlo View
of the Situation of the Porte Pnli
llo Opinion In Germany Too Strong
for tlie Prosecution of Dolbrucck.
Berlin, Nov. 17. Frlne-c von Hohcnlohc,
slnc-c his conference with the Emperor on
Thursday, has intimated to Count Go
luehowskl, Austrian minister of foreign
affairs, ttinl Germany will consent to dis
cuss the question of united action on the
part of the European powers toward
Turkey, so far as providing protection to
Christians and maiutaluing order arc con
cerned. Although this assent does not com
mit Germany to any definite policy be
yond participating in negotiations, It
still marks a considerable change in the
official altitude of the government, which
has hitherto been reluctant to admit that
anything like coercion of the Sultan is likely
to be necessary.
The expectation which is entertained
in official quarters that this decision of
the government will influence the Sultan
is based upon the belief that the Kaiser
retains the confidence and friendship of
the Turkish emperor. since uc """"-empres.-,
visited Constantinople in 18SJ,
the German emperor is the only Euroiiean
monarch the Sullau has personally met and
the two sovereigns have every jear since
the visit, exchanged friendly greetings.
GERMANY'S PROBABLE FOLIC i.
But the most potent factor in convincing
the Sultan of the desire of Germany for a
policy of moderate intervention in Turkey
Is the information which has been conveyed
through Trlnce Radollu, the German am
bassador to St. Petersburg, that the over
tures made by Italy and Great Britain
looking to the adoption of extreme mea
sures have been rejected as being inoppor
tune. , .
The idea advanced by Baron Blanc, the
Italian minister of foreign affairs, which
le believed to bo supported by Lord Salis
bury, that England should establish a
coalition with the Dreibund in the event
of the breaking up of the Ottoman Empire,
has not commended itself to the Berlin
government as being in the meantime
worthy of discussion and the tone of Uic
iwnil-offlcial press Is in consonance with
the pollcv of the government. The Ham
burger correspondent admits that a fear
of a catastrophe in Constantinople has
influenced German diplomacy to cuergeUc
action, but the paper still expresses hope
that such action will be directed toward
averting final disaster to the Pultan.
The National Zeitung goes a little further
than Its Hamburg contemporary m de
claring that the bet and most direct way
of preserving peace is the honest intro
duction of reforms throughout the whole
Turkish empire, treating Christian and
Moslem alike, but no semi-official news
paper has as yet taken a pessimistic view
of the situation of the Porte.
GOOD MEN IN CONTROL.
The correspondents of German news
papers In Constantinople, who are now
keeping pace with all competitors in re
ipect to the abundance and accuracy of
the Information they are supplying to
their respective journals, agree in con
ceding that the new Grand Vizier. Halll
Pasha, and Tewflk Pasha, the new min
ister of foreign affairs, are men of pure
Intentions and considerable ability. Tewfik
Pasha while he was for a number uf years
the ambassador of the Turkish empire
to this capital, was a well known iigure
In Berlin society, and earned the repu
tation of being a pleasant gentleman and a
diplomat who was averse to getting Into
trouble, but rather fancied leading n quiet
and enjoyable life.
Rifat rasba, according to the correspond
ent of the Tageblatt, though an old man with,
now white hair ,has the energy of a man
In the prime of life, combined with ample
diplomatic craft and a readiness to fight
bis opponents upon the slightest provoca
tion. He will not allow the palace clique to
suppress him as they did Klamil Pasha,
and it will go hard with anybody who may
aticmpt it. In an Interview with the Tage
blatt s correspondence the grand vizier ex
pressed with much warmth ills satisfaction
that Germany had not joined In the Eng
lish and general foreign policy of denounc
ing the Turks, denunciations which, he de
clared, were as unrestrained as they were

The judgment of the supreme court at
Lelpsio in the cose of Herr Zleme Is re
garded as a defeat of the socialist propa
ganda, and Is especially so looked upon
within the army. The case lias been pend
ing for a long time. Zleme, upon the eve
of the calling In of the recruits drartcd in
1894, delivered a harangue to the young
workingmen of Berlin, in which he said:
"Ira ere about to be deprived of your
freedom, and enter into slavery. I exhort
you to still do your duly as Socialists."
ADVERSE DECISION ON APPEAL.
He was at once arrested and the court
In Berlin before which he was tried for
his Intemperate remarks finally acquitted
blru of the charge of Inciting the military
to disobey orders on the ground that he had
cot addressed himself to recruits who had
been sworn in. The question was then car
ried to the sjpreme court at Lelpsic, before
which the Imperial prosecutor pleaded that
Zleme belonged to tho reserves and there

tary authorities and also maintained that the
military code applied to socialist meetings,
where probable recruits were assembled.

FROM A SPANISH DUNGEON
Gen. Garcia Escapss and Oomes to
the United States.
Will Go to Cuba nt Once An Intrepid
and Skillful Commander Hejolo-
lns Anions Iimurtrents.
New fork, Nov. 17. Surprise and Joy
follows the receipt of a cable message
from Paris by Thomas Estrada Palm.i. at
the headquarters of tho Cuban Junta. The
message Is from the agent in Paris of the
Revolutionary Junta, and announces briefly
that General Calixto Garcia, the famous
general and patriot of the "ten yearn'
war," had escaped from a dungeon In Spain,
and would arrlvein New Vork on the steam
ship Campania yt-bterday.
"This means much for the cause of
Cuba Ilbre," said Thomas Estrada Palma.
"It will give our generals and men in the
field in Cuba new courage to maintain tho
war and their advances upon the enemy.
"General Garcia will be a power of
Etrcngth to the cause of liberty for which
we arc striving. He is n brave und noble
patriot and a great general. His former
experience and knowledge of the country
will bu invaluable to our forces."
When the local patriots heard the good
news they embraced each other Joyfully.
The fact that General Garcia escaped from
the Spanish prison two w,eeks ago has been
known to members of the Junta, but they
did not know that he contemplated coming
to America so soon, if at all.
General Garcia has been Imprisoned since
shortly after the close of tho ten j ears' war.
His adventures and the manner in which he
readied Paris are unknown to the Junta.
He is fifty-five years of age, and was a bold
and skilful commander in the former great
Cuban rebellion. It was the unanimous
opinion at headquarters that he would Im
mediately go to Cuba and tuke an active
part in the hostilities.

St. Petersburg, Novi.1 7. The Grand Duke

SITUATION GETTLVG WORSE.
London, Nov. 17. The Dally News will
tomorrow publish n dlsputch from Con
stantinople, dated November 10, saying
that the most serious anxiety prevails,
and the situation Is becoming worse. The
government Is obtaining a record of the
houses in which Armenians live.
This action caused alarm, because In
several towns where massacres have oc
curred the houses of Armenians have been
previously marked. Several of the lead
ing Armenian merchants have sought and
received shelter in the houses of Europeans.
The American missionaries at lutlis have
telegraphed to the American minister asking
him to procure from the Porte an escort
to take them and their families to Van.
It Is estimated that 20.000 persons have
been massacred since the acceptance by
the Sultan of the scheme of reform.

that there is u great nation beyond the
Atlantic that will not allow the blood of
Its sons to be shed with impunity. The
paper commends the holding of Indignation
