THE EMPRESS VICTORIA.

Banmjr, April 9.-Emperor Frederick
pssed a good night last night. He arose
early this morning and bade arewell to the
Empress previous to her departure for
, with Princesses Victoria, Sophie
and Marg t, to Inquire as to the condition
of the suferers by the floods.
The Empress arrived at Posen this after
noon. She stopped at other places besides
Landuberg, where she was received by the
uunicipal and other officials, and was every
where greeted with enthusiasm. The Polish
leaders have issued a manifesto asking the
inhabitants of Posen to sink their national
disputes and unite in welcoming the Em
press. In reply to the deputation which
set her at the station in Posen Empress
Victoria said that the Emperor, regretting
his inability to come himself, had sent her
to examine as to the condition of affairs and
to report to him. The pessons who have
been prominent in helping the sufferers by
the floods were presented to the Empress,
who thanked them for their efforts to
alleviate the distress among the people.
The Governor of Posen met the Empress
at Kreuz. Burgomaster Mueller received
the Empress at the Posen station and pre
sented to her the leading oilcials of the dep
utation and the relief committee, composed
of officers of the Second Hussars. Arch
bishop Dinder and a number of Protestant
and Catholic clergy were also present. The
road from the station to the town was lined
with trade guilds, carrying flags and em
blems, the Landwekr associations and
school children. The Empress drove slowly
and was incessantly cheered by the people.
She first visited the asylum, a large school
house where the homeless are temporarilry
lodged, and thence went to the Governor a
house, where she took lunch. Addressing
Councillor Jacobs, the (Empress said: "I
commission you to express to all taking a
helpful part in the present danger the
thanks of the Empror and myself. The
calamity that has befallen you arouses our
deepest sympathy and we hope to alleviate
the suffering as far as human help can
Speaking of Kitsing, the Empress said:
"The old steadfastness of the people of the
Mark has once more been tried and proved.
The Emperor is especially thankful for
It is stated today that Prince Bismarck
has abandoned his opposition to the mar
miage of Prip e Alexander, of Battenberg,
and th Princess Victoria, having gained
certain other concessions, and 1hat all the
differences between the Emperor and Prince
Bismark are now settled.
The Emperor today conferred decorations
on Drs. Howell and Mackenzie.
Prince Bismarck and IIerr von Bennigsen,
leader of the National Liberals, had a con
ference today which lasted two hours.
THE EMPRESS WINS.
After a Long Conference with Dimark bhe
BERLIN, April 11.-In regard to the
crisis there is only one important event.
The Empress had a two hours' conference
with Bismarck today. The high spirits
displayed by the Empress after her return
from the interview were hardly compatible
with a rumor that the projected marriage
is to be deferred to some remote future
time. The whole affair is mysterious, an(d
one is tempted to believe that some great
surprise is pending. The rumor is still
circulated that Bismarck intends to resign.
While the name of Count Munster, Ger
man Ambassador at Paris, is mentioned as
his successor, it is stated that the Emperor's
choice is Baron Von Rogrenbach, a long
and Intimate friend of the Emperor. The
Baron is 68 years of age.
There now seems no longer any doubt
that the betrothal incident was only a pre
text employed by Bismiarck to bring mat
'. ters to a crisis today. The Emperor, 'who
is somewhat better a gain and took an
hour's drive today, had a long conference
with Bismarck. Roggenbach is said to
have attempted to arrange matters between
the Empress and the Chancellor. Trhe
Post, the National Zeitung and other pa
per's publish this evening, probably on a
hint from the Government, articles advis

SI,000 REWARD FOR A BABY.
Stolen fronm the eideiwalk in Front of a Store
in New York.
NEW YORKx April 10,-Seigel & Co. run
a dry goods store at Seventy-seventh street
and Third avenue. Yesterday afternoon a
stylishly dressed woman left her fifteen
months' old baby in its carriage on the
sidewalk for a few minutes while she wvent
into the store to make a purchase. When
she returned to the sidewalk, baby and car
riage had disappeared. Detectives were at
once engaged, and the following advertise
ment appeared In the morning~ papers:
"One thousand dollars rewardi and no
questions asked for return of baby stolen
from in front of Siegel's diry goodis store
Apil 9. SIEGEL & Co.,
"Seventy-svnhStreet, Third Avenue."
A strange feature of the case is that the
names of the parents are not made public.
A representative of the firm of Siegel &
Co. was asked today If he knew who they
were. His reply was:
"Oh, yes, of course; but that is a matter
that cannot comec cut yet."
"Well, they are people of wealth. They
have put the matter In the hands of pri
vate detectives and have authorized us to
offer $1,000 reward. The detectives, how
ever, have advised that all names be sup
pressed for the time."
"Is it not rather strange that the parents
do not want the newspapers to be placed
naosition to assist them In finding their
"Well, I don't know. All I can tell you
is that they live between Seventy-fifth and
Eighty-sixth streets and are wealthy.
Further, if the baby is not found, a still
larger reward will be offered."--Special to
the Philadelphia Times.

Do you know that there are about
80,000 oommercial travelers in the United
States? Burprised to hear it? Yes, most
people are when they are told of it, but
it's a fact, nevertheless. You may also
be surprised to learn that every one of
them spends on an average $3,000 a
year, or a total of $240,000,000. If you
add to this their salaries, averaging at
least $1,000, you have a total expendi
ture by commercial travelers of $320,
000,000 a year. This is naturally spent
in all p?arts of the country, but the hotels
and rairoads get the lion's share of it.
During the last ten years there has been
a great chang in te character of the
commercial traveler. The old Bohemian
type has almost entirely disappeared
from the road, and drinking men are
snucoh more rarely met with there than

A BU8U4INE.LIKE DOG.
He Compels His Master, the Doctor, to
(a11 Upon a Patient.
(From the aridley, Cal., Herald.)
Dr. Harris, of this city is the owner
of a d whose remarkable intelli ce
is wo recording in the histori an
nals of marvels peculiar to this age.
"Don" is a thorough-bred bird-dog,
spaniel and pointer combined, and al
ways at his master's heels when that gen
tleman is at home. About six weeks ao
the doctor was called to Blskiyou county
and did not return until last lsaturday.
"Don" was compelled to stay at home,
and stuck very close to the house. When
parties would call and inquire for the
physician the dog would invariably in
terrupt the conversation, and, taking
hold of the caller's coat or dress, en
deavor to lead them to the depot, at the
same time barking vigorously. He
would also be at the depot regularly
every morning when the train arrived
from the north, apparently looking for
his master. The last week of the gen
tleman's absence "Don" was at the depot
upon the arrival of every train from the
north, hence when the doctor got off he
was met by a geiftleman who seemed too
much astonished to speak. "How in
the world did you know that I wanted
you? Did you come purposely to see
me?" he said as he greeted the physi
cian. "Yes," replied Harris; "but I
shouldn't have come here if the dog
hadn't almost forced me to." Harris
then ascertained that the gentleman had
been at his house the previous night and
left word for him to call as soon as he
arrived home. In as much as Dr. Har
ris had not seen any person and acted
as he only to please the dog, the logical
conclusion is that "Don" heard and un
derstood the conversation the previous
night and did that which his dog sense
dictated. That the canine has pretty
near as much sense as a great many
human beings is further evidenced by
the fact that he will, at his master a
command, traverse the town in search
little Joe Harris (aged 7 years) and com
pel him to come home.
"1'11E DYING ChIAMPIONS."
The Augusta Chronicle is impelled to re
mark thus upon the (lying condition of
Roscoe Conkling and the filling strength
of James U. Illaine:
"The illness of lRoscoe Conkling in New
York recalls t lie fact that another conspi
cuous figure in national politics is fast fail
ing, and that before the year is closed
James U. Baine will be no more. Latest
advices from Europe, through medical
sources, leave no doubt that the Maine
statesman is dying from liabetes. lie has
lost flesh heavily of late, and looks old and
Infirm. It is said that Mr. ilaine is i
pressed with the belief tlint he is going to
die, and his friends adnit that he has failed
very rapidly this winter. In the past
twenty years no men have had greater part
in moulling public affairs. Each was
elected to Congress during the war, and
both made distinguished records in the up
per and lower houses of Coigress. Conk
ling was haughty and imperious, but
learned, logical and cogent. llaine has
been affable, popular, clouqent and mag
netic. Naturally, they have been rivals
and are now enemies, Blane contriving
always to humiliate anl nettle Conk bing,
while the great New Yorker has twice
managed to block his rival's nomination to
the Presidency In his party, and, when vic
tory was almost within his grasp, threw
New York State to Cleveland by the solid
vote of Oneida.
"Both are now out of polities. Blaine
forced Conkling from the Senate, and
Conkling knifed Blaine in the laust national
race. Neither will ever resume hIs pla1ce
in the councils of the party-where each
has fought with giant-like abilities. It
may be said of Blaine that no p)arty ever
worshipped a man so closely or continu
ously since the days of IIenry Clay. It may
be said of C .nkling that no breath o'f (dis
honesty ever attaintedl his nam'.e or clogg(ad
his career. A statesman with Islaine's
tem peramnent and Conkling's character
might revive (een the dlrooping destinies
of thle Republican party, which seems nowv
ab1oult to lose the ab)ilities ot tboth and to be
near its own hour of dlissolution.
