Gladstone's coming deliverance at the
Liberal federation meeting is invested
with further importance by tho author
ized announcement that he intends to
review Lord Salisbury's foreign policy
and declare what his own will be if he
should agaiu be placed in power. The
federation proceedings are not likehy to
astonish the world with any startling
variation from its cut and dried pro
gramme, but if expectation proves cor
rect, Gladstone will make the meeting
memorable by a statement of his foreign
policy, committing the Liberals to a line
of action directly opposed to that of
Lord Salisbury. Morley has already
declared that "the next Gladstone ad
ministration will accomplish the evacua
tion of Egypt with the le,ast possible
A POLITICAL SENSATION.
Letters from Gladstone to the Servian
politician, Yovomovitch, which will ap
pear in tomorrow's issue of The Speaker,
are likely to cause a sensation in Eu
rope, as they show the widest possible
divergence between the Liberal and
present Conservative policy. Mr. Glad
stone advocates the closest harmony
among the Balkin states; repudiates
Salisburp's diplomacy as tending to
wards the supremacy of Bulgaria over
the other and adds that he "feels
warmly with the lately subjected popu
lations of Southwestern Europe." The
last phrase can only apply to Austria's
taking possession of Bosnia and Herze
govinia. The letter is interpreted to
mean that Gladstone desires to oust the
Austrians from Bosnia and support the
formation of a federation of Balkan
LIBERALS BUOYANT WITH HOPE.
The Gladstone Liberals continue to
arrange ior the future on the supposed
certainty of their being in power by
the autumn of '92. The conservatives
now talk of postponing the general elec
tions until the remotest legal period,
which will be April, '93, in order to en
able the government to get the Irish
local government in working order.
THE BALANCE OF TRADE.
Economic experts agree that the net
addition to the normal imports of
American Grain, has not exceeded $100,
--000,000, of which part will be taken in
luxuries and part in gold. If extrava
gant buying of American railroad se
curities continues, English indebtedness
will be further enforced and will lead to
an increase of bullion shipments. Mr.
Geiffen'B recent estimate that £10,000,
--000 in gold would be the limit of the
export to New York, is not disputed,
but even this maximum is expected to
entail the ii-crease of the Hank of Eng
land rate to 5 or 6 per cent.
BIDWELL AND MAYBRICK.
The appeals of the friends of Austin
Bidwell to Home Secretary Matthews to
remit the remainder of Bidwell's term
of imprisonment have failed, in spite of
the fact that they were supported by
high influence. Secretary Matthews re
fuses even to reply to the memorial.
Efforts to secure "the release of Mrs.
Maybrick will be equally futile. The
convict's solicitor has been advised not
to proceed with the agitation, as the
home office will decline to reopen case
in any form.
MR. GRAVES'S EXPERIENCE IN GERMANY.
The American artist, Mr. Graves, who
was recently arrested in Germany, for
taking photographs of scenery, has ar
rived in London. He says he was ar
rested at Mayence, while taking a harm
less view of the town from the fort
works, aud was confined for thirty three
hours in a cell, furnished with only a
dirty mattress. His food consisted of
black bread, a mug of coffee which was
drawn from a tank, and rotten soup,
also taken from a tank, until he was al
lowed to buy his meals. He was re
leased through the American consul,
and then went to Mafz, where he was
again arrested for taking photographs
in the streets. From Metz he was
hunted over the frontier.
i Balfour's voting place.
Mr. Balfour has registered himself as
.* voter in South Dublin. The Conserv
atives propose his candidacy for a mem
ber of parliament for that seat.
I German Anarchists Imprisoned.
Berlin, Sept. 25. —Six Anarchists,who
were tried here, have been sentenced to
terms of imprisonment fr#m six months
to two years, for circulating prohibited
literature. Tne publication they are
charged with circulating is the Anarch
ist paper, Autonomie, printed in Lon
don, coutaing articles insulting to tbe
emperor, and designed to incite the
people to treason. Behr and Wagen
knecht were acquitted. They became
notorious in connection with the treason
trial of Rheinhold in 1890.
Russia to Protect Persia.
London, Sept. 25.—The commercial
treaty now being negotiated between
Russia and Persia will provide for the
relegation of the duty, of representing
the two countries abroad to a single rep
resentative. This probably implies a
Russian protectorate over Persia.
The Czar Passes Through Berlin.
Berlin, Sept. 25.—The czar requested
that his passage through Berlin on his
way to Moscow, whither he is going be
cause of the death of the Grand Duchess
Paul, be strictly private, with no recep
tion at the railway station. The czar
arrived here late today and was received
by Prince Leopold on behalf of Emperor
William. After dining he resumed his
THE QUEBKO Ol AURM,,
It May Result In Annexation to tho
Quebec, Sept. 25.— Lieutenant-Go
vernor Angers, who is said to be harass
ing bis ministers into doing something
that will warrant dismissing them, to
day demanded that the government
name a public accuser or prosecutor to
conduct the case against tbe ministers,
before a royal commission, and refused
to allow their claim to be represented by
counsel at the investigation. The
wildest rumors are current in regard
to Premier Mercier's action should he
be dismissed. It is said he will
not take dismissal from Angers, but will
defy him, and that his supporters, who
are the majority in the legislature, will
probably adopt resolutions censuring
Angers and calling upon the governor
general to remove him at once, other
wise the province will declare itself out
of the confederation, aud take the con
sequences, which may lead to annexa
tion to the United States.
Germany Triumphing over France.
Paws, Sept. 25.—The police have
seized a cartoon representing Germany
as again triumphing over France, the
idea lor the offensive picture being de
rived from the successful production of
Lohengrin. They also seized an objec
tionable placard and copies of a pamph
let characterized by a bitter spirit of po
litical warfare. Another performance
of Lohengrin waß given tonight. It
passed off without noteworthy incident.
Czar and Kaiser to Meet.
_ Vienna, Sept. 25.—1t is authorita
tively announced that the czar and

at Bromberg. The announcement, being
entirely unexpected, has caused consid

HE QUEERED BLAINE.
DRf BURCHARD, OF THE THREE
His Famous "Rum, Romanism and Re
bellion" Speech—He Thought He Was
the Humble Instrument of the Divine
Power to Effect Blame's Defeat.
Saratoga, N. V., Sept. 25.—The Rev.
Dr. Burchard, who was taken ill here
Saturday evening, died this afternoon.
On Tuesday his illness developed into
peritonitis. He was born in Steuben,
N. V., in 1812, received an academic ed
ucation when 18, removed to Kentucky
in 1836, was graduated at Centre college,
Danville, ivy., and soon after won a
wide reputation in the state, lecturing
on temperance, slavery and religious
questions. During the cholera epidemic
of 1837 he was a volunteer nurse; was
licenced to preach in 1838, went to New
York in 1839, and took charge of a Pres
byterian church there. He was a man
of fine physical development, and noted
for his great kindness of heart
and sympathy for the afflicted.
He was a winning speaker.
Ho was made chancellor of Ingrain uni
versity, tilling the office in connection
with his church duties. When he re
signed his pastorship in 1879, the con
gregation is said to have madehim a
present of $15,000, and to have mort
gaged the church for the purpose. He
gave up pastoral work entirely in 1885.
Burchard came prominently before
the public in 1884, when several hun
dred ministers gave a reception at the
Fifth avenue hotel to Blame,
then the Republican candidate for pres
ident. Burchard was there and had been
chosen to address Blame In behalf of
the clergymen. Blame stood on the
staircase above the corridor floor, in
full view of the clergymen and others
who had gathered to greet him.
Ascending the staircase to the sec
ond story below Blame, Bur
chard spoke. As lie neared the close
of his address, with affectionate regard
and esteem for Mr. Blame, using prac
tically these words, he said: "And we
admire and welcome you, Mr. Blame, as
the steadfast opponent of 'rum, Roman
ism and rebellion.' "
Years later, Dr. Burchard, while
speaking of the incident with an Asso
ciated Press representative who stood
near him the day it occurred, said:
"Well, I don't know but I might have
been a humble instrument in the hands
of the Divine power to effect exactly the
contrary to what I had in my heart to
do when I spoke that day."
An Address to the Queen.
Ottawa, Ont., Sept. 25.—The senate
tonight adopted an address to her maj
esty, to tbe effect that Great Britain de
nounce and terminate the provisions
applying to Canada in certain commer
cial treaties between Great Britain and
Belgium and the German Zollverein.
It is said if the representations were fa
vorably considered, it would enable
Canada to adopt such modifications in
her tariff arrangements as would be re
quired for the promotion of its trade
against aggressive defense or injurious
measures of foreign policy.
Paris, Sept. 25.—A mail train on the
Bordeaux and Paris 'road was nearly
wrecked today between Ruffec and
I inray, owing to a number of rails hav
ing been placed across the track. Tne
perpetrators have not been discovered.

Note to the Powers.
No Confidence Placed in the
Russia Persuaded Not to Join in the
England and Germany Determined to
Prosecute a Vigorous Policy—The
Tartar Dynasty Must Take
Care of Itself.
Associated Press Dispatches.
London, Sept. 25. —[Copyrighted by
the New York Associated PressJ—
Communications from the Pekin ftrv
ernment, offering compensation to for
eigners who have suffered in the recent
riots in China, with the strongest as
surances of future protection, are re
ceived with distrust in the foreign office
here.' Hau Ching Chang, Chinese am
bassador to the European courts, has
recently been in St. Petersburg, whire
he succeeded in inducing the Russian
government to withdraw from the joint
action projected by the powers. He ar
rived in Berlin today, with the view of
trying to influence Chancellor Yon
Caprivi, but it is certain he will not
alter the determination of the German
government to co-operate with the Brit
ish in taking decisive measures. The
Pekin note, as given to the papers, fails
to indicate the character of the appeal
made by Hau Ching Chang to the Eu
ropean governments. He has urged
that the imperial government was en
tirely honest in desiring to suppress dis
orders, and seeking time to deal with
the anti-foreign movement, aud that
precipitate action on the part of the
powers would defeat their object and
bring China into anarchy. His com
munications distinctly suggest the prob
ability of such a potent political up
heavel in China as might overthrow the
PANICKY PEELING IN PEKIN.
The panicky feeling existing in Pekin
is made known here by urgent telegrams
sent through the Chinese embassy, im
ploring Lord Salisbury to instruct Sir
John Walsham, British minister to
China, to adopt a more friendly attitude.
Minister Walsham advises the foreign
office that persistent diplomatic pras- 1
sure, combined with a naval denionstra-s
tion at certain treaty ports, will be the
only effective means to prevent recur
rent outrages. He complains that thfr
promulgation of the emperor's edict
against attacks on foreigners, has been
unneccessarily delayed. He asked the
officials to use the telegraph in publish
ing tbe edict, but the officials refused,
saying there was no precedent for doing
so, and the edict must be distributed by
ordinary couriers. The minister also
complains of the uncertainty of the pun
ishment of the real leaders of the out
THE TARTAR DYNASTY'S DOOM.
If Lord Salisbury supports Minister
Walsham's' policy, the powers will
actively intervene in order to protect
Europeans, leaving the Tartar dynasty
to take care of itself. In spite of the
chaotic state oi the present troubles, the
foreign office here is hopeful that tbe
ultimate result will be the extention of
trade to important centers on the
Yang-tse-Kiang which are now closed,
but where the government aims to
Summary of the Cablegram Sent to
the Treaty Powers.
London, Sept, 25. —Following is a
summary of the official cablegram re
Specific sums have been offered the
treaty powers by China as compensation
for loss of life and property at various
places where disorders occurred. Four
leaders of the rioters have been executed
and twenty-one banished. Five man
darins have been adjudged culpably
remiss in not adopting measures to pre
serve older. The imperial government
has ordered the viceroys of Chihli and
Manking to dispatch the northern and
southern squadrons to patrol the Yang-
Tse-Kiang and afford protection to the
life and property of Europeans wherever
necessary. Though rumors of further
troubles still excite uneasiness in certain
places, the government has no doubt
of its ability to cope effectively
with all attempts at breaches of
the peace. Nothing is known
respecting the reports cabled to Europe
of an attempt to seize the Foo Chow
arsenal, but undoubted evidence of the
activity of secret societies has been ob
tained in other quarters. Thirty-five
cases of foreign rifles consigned to a
British subject employed in the imperial
customs office at Chin Kiang, have been
seized at Shanghai by customs officers,
and the consignee has been arrested and
turned over to the British authorities.
The same man had a quantity of dyna
mite which, with the rifles, he confessed
was intended for the use of the secret
society at Chin Kiang. Three other
British subjects and six other foreigners
whose nationality is doubttul, all resi
dents of Shanghai, are implicated in the
transaction which the British officials
The cablegram concludes with the
repetition that the imperial government
has no doubt of its entire competency to
CHINA'S BAD FAITH.
Ixjndon, Sept. 26.—The Times' Paris
correspondent says: It has become
known here that the' governor of the
Chinese provinces in which the riots oc
curred have distinctly declined to be
held responsible therefor, and have de
clared it impossible to pay indemnity.
The inference to be drawn is that the
Chinese circular to the powers aims
simply at delay in order to shirk in
demnity, and therefore will not be held
to account to Europe.
RUSSIA IS NOT IN IT.
Sr. Petersburg, Sept. 26.—The Rus
sian government ia disposed to join the
other powers in sending a diplomatic
protest to China, but will not take part
in a combined naval demonstration.
SANTA CRUZ'S CENTENNIAL.
A Handsome Memorial Arch Unveiled
With Impressive Ceremonies.
Santa Chub, Cal, Sept. 25.—The cen
tennial of the founding of tbe Mission
of the Holy Cross on the present site of
Santa Cruz was celebrated today by the
unveiling of a granite arch erected by
popular subscription on the spot where
the original Padres planted tbe cross in
1791. The memorial consists of a cen
tral arch, Gothic style, nine feet wide,
thirteen feet high, flanked by pinnacles
surmounted by a gable with open span
drel work, finished at the apex with
a cross. On either side of this is
a smaller arch, five feet wide,
eight feet high, having above an open
balustrade. The cost was $6000. The
location is immediately in front of the
present Catholic church. High mass
was celebrated at !) o'clock, eighteen
priests being present. Hundreds were
unable to gain admission to tbe church.
The religious exercises were followed by
a procession, the unveiling of the memo
| rial arch and an oration by Rev. Father
Meyers, of Los Angeles. Speeches were
also made by Hon. Elihu Anthony, rep
resenting the pioneers, and Rev. Hugh
McNamee, the parish priest.
The Ameer Bribed by the Czar.
St. Petkbsiiukg, Sept. 25.—Letters
from Nijni Novgorod merchants state
that Afghanistan has been opened by
tbe Ameer to free commercial inter
course with Russia. The concession is
said to have been made in consideration
of the excellent quality of Russian pro
ducts, but is really due to Russian
adroitness and to \aluable gifts etc.,
from the czar.
London, Sept. 25.—The Berlin corre
spondent of the Times says that the par
ticipation of Germany in the Russian
loan iB proof that the events at Cron-
Btadt have not had the lasting effects in
Berlin that the French press imagined.
A DICTATORSHIP UNDER THE FLAG
The Governor of British Honduras Usurps
All the Powers of Government After
the Manner of Bis More Eminent South
Panama, Sept. 25.—The Star and Her
ald publishes the following account of
a difficulty at Balize, British Honduras,
between the administration and the
legislature : "Aftera protracted struggle
'between the government and the popu
lar element of the legislature, not unlike
between Balmaceda and the Chilean
congress, the representatives vacated
their seats in a body. The governor, in
noway disconcerted, promptly appointed
in their room certain officials whom he
designated "unofficial" members, inas
much as they did not occupy their seats
ex-officio. There was at that time
(February last) no one to gainsay
him, and from February to July
the colony was practically run
under a Balmacedan form of govern
ment. Action was had in July against
the collector of customs to recover
alleged illegally exacted duties on the
ground that the colony possessed no
constitutional legislature, either at the
present time or when the new tariff was
voted. The government went into court
and defended itself. Chief Justice An
derson was in aquandary for precedents,
but finally gave judgment for plaintiffs,
thereby over-ruling the legislature and
annuling ail laws passedsinceFebruary.
The government, has appealed to the
privy council of the empire.
THE I'KISON FL9T.
A Full Confession by the Conspirators
to Warden Bale.
San Quenun, Sept. 25.—Convict Tur
cott, leader of the conspirators, baa
made a confession to Warden Hale. He
took the warden to where the weapons,
five revolvers, with 250 cartridges, were
concealed under the carpenter shop.
How the weapons got into the prison,
the convicts said tbey did not know.
It is supposed the conspirators were as
sisted by some free employe" of the
orison. The plot to escape was per
fected, and the convicts were waiting
for the Bignal when Warden Hale
nipped the scheme in the bud. The
leaders had quarreled among themselves
as to the details of the plan. Some
wanted to slaughter all the guards in
sight, and to shrot any one who at
tempted to interfere with them.
THE GREENWOOD MURDERERS.
A Rumor That They Have at Last Been
San Francisco, Sept. 25.—The Chron
icle's Sacramento special says it is re
ported that the men who murdered Mrs.
Greenwood at Napa some months ago
and dangerously wounded Captain
Greenwood, have been captured in Ore
gon or Washington. Police Captain Lee
when asked concerning the same, said
the sheriff of Napa county told him the
men had been captured, "but who they
