tBY CABLE TO THE DISrATCH.'
London, August 3. Copyright -Everyone
is looking with his own eyes or
through those of newspaper men at the
proud little German Emperor and the tre
mendous naval display that his grandma,
Queen Victoria, has ordered out for him.
Five miles of ironclads, three deep, is a
sight to inspire respect, especially when
flanked by nests of torpedo boats, gunboats,
etc. England is feeling very fine over this,
and we arc reminded in every possible key
that this island can tackle and destroy any
country, which is perhaps true, with one
HAED TO BELIEVE, BUT TBTTE.
It is almost impossible to believe, looking
at the tremendous naval display, that be
side these bhips England has scattered over
the world a fleet bigger than that of any
other country, but it is true. There have
been lots of friendly demonstration between
the Emperor and his grandmother's family
not real, but supposed in some dark and
mysterious manner to cement international
alliances and help the welfare of the two
great nations. Even round Albert Edward,
Prince of Wales, tried to look as though he
liked getting seasick to meet his imperial I
he hates and whom he has
ably described as a caddish little upstart;

All these goings-on, of courst, sy-:i 1 Tories fu'eene- ai and the IrUbTBecretary in
Very little, for if Bismarck want virv to
thrash this country he will not be kept
back by the recollection of Grandmother
Victoria kissing her descendant on both
cheeks. This fact the weather seems to ap
preciate, for it makes no effort at all to be
agreeable. On the contrary, it is peculiarly
nasty, and the show has been necessarily
postponed till Monday. A terrific gale
sprang up last night and raised snch a sea
that the iron clads were obliged to steam up
to their anchors, and with a little more
wind pressure we might have had a new
A GBEAT STORM AT SEA.
The wind abated comewhat at daybreak,
but then torrents of rain fell, and continued
jliour after hour incessantly. The sea ran
to high that the steam pinnacles coming on
Shore from tbe fleet were swamped. The
haze became so thick that the folks on shore
could not see tbe ships, neither could the
admirals signal to the dockyard.
Tens of thousands of people on board the
great liners who had gathered to witness the
display were not happy. Damp, over
crowded, depressed, and unable to see any
thing, they had nothing to make life even
tolerable, and the heaving of these great
ships at anchor gave them their only occu
pation to pass away the time.
NOT A PLEASANT TIME.
On board the great Teutonic, White Star
liner, the landlubbers were lying down be
low in profusion, while those affected to a
more limited extent availed themselves of
the leeward bulwarks. Mr. Joseph Cham
berlain, Mr. Childers, Sir Michael Hicks
Beach, Mr. Douglass, the Conservative
whip, who are on board this boat, were all
more or less affected.
It would not add much to the German
Emperor's good nature if he knew which
is true, though not announced here yet
that Sir Morell Mackenzie is going to give
up a portion of his autumn holiday to the
preparation of his memoirs in connection
with the late German Emperor. The book,
when it does appear, will be called "Six
Months' Residence at the Court of the
Crown Prince and Emperor of Germany."
VERT INTERESTING DETAILS
affecting the reputation and illustrating tbe
character of the highest personages in
Prussia will be given, and the sensation
caused by Sir Morell's book on Frederick

NOT EXACTLY PET NAMES.
' Another thing which will not please the
German Emperor, should he chance to read
it, which is not probable, in tbe loyal Lon
don dailies, is the meeting held at the In
ternational Socialist Club, Soho, to-night
The meeting was convened to protest against
the honors paid to the tyrant Wilhelm, the
despot of Germany, who recently threat
ened to shoot down their own brothers in
Westphalia. There was a large attendance,
including several ladies, who applauded the
most bloodthirsty sentiments with unsexual
ihiuiaei. Citizen Herr Skaer, who pre-
sided, called the young Emperor "scoun
drel," "hellhound," "assassin" and other
uncomplimentary names, and concluded by
volunteering to make the same speech in
front of Buckingham Palace, if his com
rades would support him. The suggestion
was enthusiastically approved by sereral
speakers, but it is not probable anything
more will be heard of it.
THE SHAH IN PARIS.
HI. Immorality at the Table Shocks the
French An Affection; Meeting; Why
the Socialist Are Angry Real
1ST CABLE TO THE DISrATCB.l
London, August 3. The Parisians are
in the same state of excitement about the
Shah as England was a fortnight before,
only rather more so. It is needless to say
they have discovered entirely new tales
aboufhim, and that these are told with a
cheerful frankness of disregard of news
paper readers' moral welfare, which cannot
be successfully emulated in an Anglo-Saxon
community. What seems to have horrified
tbe wise-eating Frenchmen most is the
Shah's immorality in a gastronomic sense.
When he eats to snit himself he has all put
on the table at once. He olten begins "with
a lot of peaches swimming in a sauce large
ly composed of vinegar and pepper; he eats
grapes with his roast, and has an entire
lamD cut up to be boiled into soup for him
with lots of onions, peas, etc.
The Shah has proved that he is not proud.
It is quite touching to read how he met
King Dinah, another quaint potentate, who
at home rules the Seneealese. but who on
this occasion happened to be kicking bis
heels in the ante-room of the Minister of
Commerce. The African King was unusually
gorgeous, being attired in sword and the
second-hand and very highest embroidered
raiment of a Catbolio bishop, which he had
bouebt at auction. The Shah invited the
King home, got him to point out his king
dom on the map, traded photos with him,
and asked him a great many questions.
The Socialist papers are full of indigna
tion at the French authorities for bowing
down to a despot who at home has no re
spect at all for the workingman or any
other kind of man, and even some of the
more conservative papers have cried out
against the excess of civilitv lavished upon
his Persian majesty bv Carnot and bis Cab
inet Carnot is just the sort of man to en
tertain the Shah, and he had the start in
winning that monarch's favor, having been
named Sadi, after the Persian poet
There is a real diplomatio object back of
all this fuss made in the Shah's honor by
the French Government, namely, a desire
to please Russia by following suit and doing;
as much as possible to make the important
Persian happy. -
The Shah, during his channel trip, was
fearfully ill, and so was the small favorite
who goes about with him wearing a saber as
long as himself.

London, August 3. The English in

Wonted by a Frenchman In Order to Have

America Tinned Meat
Men Relied Upon.
IBT CABLE TO TUB SISrATCB.
London, August 3. While in Paris this
week I lunched with Armand La Lande,
Deputy for La Gironde and ownerof numer
ous important vineyards, among others Leo
ville, Poy-Ferre. Monsieur La Lande, who
is an extremely able man, is much inter
ested in the development of Bordeaux, the
region where he has made his fortune. He
is working at a scheme which will interest,
first, those in America who like good Bor
deaux, and also a great many people in Chi
cago and the West, whether they care for
Bordeaux or not
La Lande's idea, which he explained to
me, and which he wished to make public in
your columns, was to get the French Gov
ernment to arrive at some understanding
with that of the United States, by means of
which duties on French wines entering
America should be reduced, and in return
the French legislation which prevented the
entrance of American salt meats into France
should be done away with.
La Lande showed me a letter which he
had written to the French Minister of Cus
toms on this subject He points out that
since 1850 the importation of French wines
into the United States has fallen off four
filtbs, despite the great growth of American
population and wealth, and he does not be
lietje that this is due in any way to the de
velopment of the wine-growing industry in
La Lande does not hope for the abolition
of the duty on wines, but will strive, if en
couraged in his Idea, to obtain a reduction
of our duties so as to make them equal to
those imposed in England, that is to say, 25
cents per gallon, wbetber in bottle or in bar
rel, no matter what may be the kind of
wine. La Lande points, out that this will
very probably be a good thing for the
American revenue. In 1860 French wines
entering England paid 5 shillings and 6
pence per gallon; when' the duty was re
duced so tremendously the consumption of
French wine increased from 27,000 hectoli
tres to 270,000 hectolitre, so that the Gov
ernment, charging only one-fifth of the
former duty, collected twice as much money.
La Lande hopes that the influence of
Americans interested in the -sale of tinned
and salt meats may be sufficiently great to
bring about this result
TAB MAIBRICK MURDER TRIAL.
Witnesses lor tbe Defense Sav Maybrick
Always Teok Arsenic
BT CABLE TO TDK DISPATCH.!
London, August 3. Liverpool is full of
the great murder trial which began there
Wednesday. The scenes about the court
have not been very pleasant, including, as
they do, absolute battles between women for
admission to the show which is to decide
whether or no Mrs. Maybrick, an American,
poisoned ber husband and shall hang. It
is difficult sot to sympathize with
the woman, even if she be guilty.
She sits all day under a .legion
of opera glasses, while brandy flasks are
nipping in the air and impromptu lunches
going on in various parts ot tbe court She
had borne up bravely, and what is more,
shows herself remarkably endowed with the
instinct usually, strongest with women hr
dress it always most carefully arranged, and
her frizzes irreproachable. Tbe women In
court apparently believs Mrs. Maybrick
guilty, and that was the general impression
among tbosj who have not come personally
in contact with her.
The defense beg'n examining its wit
nesses to-day. Sir Charles Russell savin? he
confirmed taker of arsenic' for years. A.j
witness named Bateson, who lived with Mr.
Maybrick in America from 1877 to 1881,
Mariner Thompson, and a negro named
Stanton, who was Mr. Maybrick's former
servant', all testified that the deceased took
arsenic habitually. A chemist testified
that Mr. Maybrick had purchased "pick-me-ups"
from him which contained arsenic.
BOULANGER SOBERED SOMEWHAT.
The Rebuff of the General at the Elections
Ehrlnbs Ills Head.
IBT CABLE TO TBE PISFATCB.1
London, August 3. The severe rebuff
which Boulanger has just received in the
French local elections has sobered the brave
General considerably. His recent mani
festo, in wh ch he attributes his disaster to
treachery and petty ambitions, has more of
wounded pride in it than good judgment
When a man is whipped it does not interest
his public to have him explain why. It is
quite possible, however, that in tbe more
important elections in September tbe Gen
eral may have another flash of luck, and the
enthusiastic individuals who a few days ago
thought that Boulanger must carry every
thing are just as silly now in proclaiming
Boulanger is not a sufficiently able ad
venturer to arrive, but he has good wire
pullers, and will find dissatisfied French
men to howl and vote for him until some
other man in a cocked hat or high boots
comes along to fascinate the people and cut
him out They must have some one to
shout for. These last elections show that
they are a little tired of yelling to the other
side of the channel, whither their hero has
discreetly scampered, but clever manage
ment and a little pluck may carry him on
some time longer.
DRUNKENNESS ON THE INCREASE.
Temperance movements Doine n Little More
Harm Than Goad.,
BT CABLE TO TBE DISPATCH.
London, August 3. Statistics have been
published that grieve the temperance friends.
Since 1885 salvation armies, temperance
orders, and innumerable other engines de
signed to keep mankind thirsty have been
growing all over England at a tremendous
rate, and since that time the convictions for
drunkenness have risen to 156,809 a year,
which figure gives a very weak idea indeed
as to the number of Her Majesty's loyal
subjects who have been drunk. The most
drunken citv Is Liverpool, where last year
there were 15,000 convictions.
A curious fact is that, while the cases of
drunkenness "have increased, the consump
tion of liquor has fallen off, which means
that those who are harmed by drink have
not been helped any by the temperance
movement, which evidently only reached
those possessing that mysterious quality
known as ability to let it alone.

rSrEClAL TELIOKAM TO TBS DISrATCB.l
Indianapolis, August 3. Dr. Pur
man, of this city, has just made a practical
demonstration of Brown-Sequard's life
elixir theory. Dr. Purman easily procured
the consent of Noah Clark, a citizen.
Clark li 30 years oldr generally debilitated,
suffer from rheumatism and from disease
contracted during the war, and is generally
a very fit subject for the experiment tried
mvu uiui.iuia morning.
pr. Purman drove out to the stockyards
thu'mofaing, and selected the healthiest
. lamb obtainable. The lamb was killed, and
the necessary parts were brought to his
office. Tie preparation was very simple.
The partirwere cut and pounded in a mor
tar, orjfljhoroughly "triturated." Two
drachms of water were added, and the
preparation carefully filtered. The result
waaa reddish fluid the elixir. One and a
half drachms of this, injected into the
emaciated arm of Clark, a little below the
shoulder, with an ordinary and hypodermio
Granville-Allen and Dr. Theodore Par
ker were present during tne operation, which
took place within two hours after killing
the lamb, A few minuter after the opera
tion a reporter called at the office and saw
Mr. Clark. He was a limp picture of de
jection, and seemed to have little vitality.
Ton,, know how you feel sometimes when
you get cp in the morning," he said. "You
feel slcipy and lifeless, and unable to do
anything. That's the way I have felt ever
since the war."
About tour hours after Mr. Clark walked
down town from Ft Wayne avenue and
climbed two flights of stairs without stop
ping. "I feel a decided difference," he said,
positively. "It used to take me an hour to
get down town, and this time I have walked
it within 25 minutes. I have not felt this
way for" 25 years. I have a new vitality. I
do not drag my feet along, and it is no
trouble to nold my head up. I used to go
along bent over."
Clark stood quite straight "The doctor
noticed an improved look in my eyes and
more strength in my walk," he said. "Be
fore, I could not read a newspaper without
glassos, as I now can. The injection has
certainly done me good. Whether this will
last or not, I don't know, but I hope it
will." Clark, to appearances, was certainly
improved. His complexion and eyes clear
ly indicated an exhilirated state.

Mr. Murat Halstead was given a recep
tion at Cincinnati last night Speeches
were made by Governor Forakcr, Mayor
Mosby and others. Mr. Halstead responded
in an address, which may be considered as
formally entering him in the Senatorial
Cincinnati, August 3. A reception to
Mr. Murat Halstead upon his return from
Europe was given to-night by the Repub
lican clubs of Hamilton county in
Music Hall. The clubs marched
from their respective quarters, and.
as they entered with their music the en
thusiasm of the crowd was kept at white
The stage was occupied by a large num
ber of gentlemen designated to act as vice
presidents. The entrance of Mayor Mosby
escorting the distinguished-looking figure
of Mr. Halstead was simultaneous with the
coming of one of the largest clubs bearing a
transparency with the legend, "Halstead
AN ENTHUSIASTIC GREETING.
A wild scene of waving hats and hand
kerchiefs, and people rising and cheering,
followed. The appearance of Governor
Foraker renewed the enthusiasm. Mr.
Halstead never appeared in better health,
and with a trifle of nervousness at so much
demonstration, he took his seat beside the
When all the clubs had been seated,
Mayor Mosby made a welcoming address,
containing allusions to the honored guest's
fearlessness as a journalist and a suggestion
of the usefulness of such a quality in the
Senate of the United States. When Mr.
Halstead arose to reply he had a most flat
tering reception, which continued several
minutes, during which the assemblage of
5,000 arose and cheered and cheered again.
Mr. Halstead said:
I am both gratified and surprised at the man
ifestation before me to-night, and 1 can answer
the question as to bow I am by saying that I
am very well indeed. Concerning tbe action of
tbe Senate in my case, which His Honor has
referred to, I have no grievances that I desire
to have tbe public concerned about Tbe

was, so far as tbe Republicans opposed me,
largely owing to misapprehensions which I
was unable at tbe time to correct There was
also evidence in some cases of personal feeling
that did not do me justice. But however in
tended on the part of those who rejected me, I
cheerfully and sincerely recognize tbe fact that
tbey did me a kindness. I bave been abroad
on my own hook, and have accomplished tbe
mission most important to myself tbe restora
tion of my health. The President badnodiffl
culty In finding a snitable man for the place in
the Hon. William Walter Phelps, a gentleman
admirably qualified to discbarge the duties of
that office, as has been proven by bis excellent
work in the Samoan conference.
Touching the inquiry as to whether I am a
candidate for the United States Senate, 1 do
not wish to have that urged upon tbe people.
That is a matter for consideration after the
Republican victory which I confidently oxpect
in November, by the triumphant re-election of
Governor Foraker and the election of a Repub
lican General Assembly. I do not think it pos
sible for the people of Ohio to permit tbe law
making power oi tbe State to pass into tbe
bands of the Democrats. There is notbing in
the recent history of tbe party to warrant such
NO OBJECTIONS TO OFFER.
When this Republican Legislature is elected,
if the Republicans in it shall think that I
would be a good representative man, that in
their good judgment it would be a good thins;
to elect me a Senator of the United States, I
should regard It as a great honor, and attempt
to perform the duties of tbe office to the best of
my ability. Bat tbe object to be aimed at,
however, and which cannot be too clearly and
strongly stated, is not an individual triumph,
but to make sure that Ohio shall be hereafter
represented in the Senate of the United States
by two Republicans.
That is an object worthy of any Republican's
ambition. No personal ambition should be
permitted to Interfere with that object. It is
my hope to help to win a clean Republican vic
tory in a straight Republican fight, and to
make the fight on the ground of sustaining the
administration of President Harrison and the
State administration of Governor Foraker.
The more I have traveled abroad, and the
more I have become acquainted with the peo-
Sle and affairs of other nations, tbe higher has
een mv atmreciation of tbe life in which, how-'
ever diverse may be tbe fortunes of the people,
their opportunities are far greater than in any
AN AMEEICAN ALWAYS.
Speaking for myself, while understanding
that we have no occasion to be sorry for tbe
Germans, tbe French, or tbe English who oc
cupy some of the most favored portions of the
globe and bave attained a splendid civilization,
I must say that I have an unfeigned preference
both for tbe climate and diet of the United
States of America.
Mr. Halstcad's address was listened to
with interest, and quite frequently ap
plauded. It was after 10 o'clock when
Governor Foraker arose to make his ad
dress. The Governor said his duty was an
unnecessary one. He was to welcome Jin
Halstead on behalf of the Republicans of
Ohio, but Mr. Halstead knew he was wel
come long before this time. He went on to
speak of the extent and earnestness of this
demonstration, such as was seldom accorded
to any one not a creat statesman or soldier.
Yet on his return he asked, "What have I
done to merit a reception?"
Tbe Governor said Mr. Halstead was the
only Republican in Ohio who would ask
the question. He went on to tell why Mr.
Halstead was welcome, citing as reasons
the high regard the people had for his
Kourage and honesty, for the purity and
simplicity of his life, for his intelligent
patriotism, and lor ins complete and entire
THE COMING ELECTION.
It was fortunate that his returnr restored
to health, is at this time, when an impor
tant election was on. It was an election
when Mr. Halstead's sturdy -service was
needed to assist in the blotting out of the
most foul taint upon the legislative action
of Ohio the corrupt election of Henry B.
Payneto the Senate. Mr. Halstead's serv
ice, said he, can be counted upon to assist in
making the next Legislature Republican.
Drifting into political matters, the Gov
ernor spoke of the marked reform in the
election law ol Ohio in the past four years,
and of the police force, both of -which he
claimed as results of Republican legislation.
In conclusion he touched upon the recent
manifestations of lawlessness on lhe part of
certain people, and repeated his assertion
made in his recent letter to Mayor Mosbv.

along the river.
Later particulars estimate the Dervish
dead roughly at 1,500. The Dervishes
fought desperately, throwing themselves
upon the advancing columns repeatedly,

Two Experienced Miners Pleased With
Their Find In Clermont County They
Think It Worth Working
The Precious Metal
rSFECIAL TELEQBAX TO TBE DISrATCB.l
Cincinnati, August 3. For several
years gold in small quantities has been
found in Clermont county, this State, not
more than 20 miles from Cincinnati. Inex
perienced men has worked over the ground
at intervals, and in their small findings
have made probably 51 50 a day each.
About a week ago two experienced miners,
who had received specimens of the ore from
the farm of John Wood, in Clermont
county," looked oyer the ground
thoroughly and then went to work.
They say that a discovery like they have
made, if made anywhere in the mining re
gions of the West, would attract 2.000
miners within 48 hours. The miners are a
Mr. Baldwin and J. S. Jennings. The
former is a native New Yorker and the lat
ter is an Ohloan. Both were astonished to
day to learn that their business in Clermont
county had been found out by the news
papers, and gave up what information they
had very reluctantly.
Until the arrival of these miners no at
tempts were ever made to tunnel into the
hill wilere gold is found. Only placer
mining ias been carried on, and that by in
experienced men. Not a panfnl of the
earth can be gathered up anywhere about
this hill in which traces of gold can't be
found. Usually the gold is in minute
specks, but frequently buttons of good size
are discovered, some as large as buckshot
So confident are the miners that they have
struck a rich lead that they have perfected
