BERLIN", Germany, Aug. 4.-Tbe pre
vailing dullness of Berlin, especially in
social circles, received a passing enlivener
on Thursday, when the new Royal Opera
and Thiergarten, formerly Kroll's Opera
house, was opened with a splendid pro
duction of Nlcolai'a "Merry Wives of
"Windsor." The Emperor and his entire
. military household, in resplendent uni
forms, were present and occupied the grand
imperial box, which faces the stage. The
box was draped with crimson brocaded
silk, with heavy gold ornaments. The
etyle of decoration was that of the Herron
sheimsee castle of Louis II in Bavaria.
The auditorium was scented with lilac eau
de colopne. All of the fashionable people
remaining in Berlin were in attendance,
but most of the society people are at the
spas or the seaside. All of the prominent
persons in the American colony were also
present. They were headed by Secretary
J. B. Jackson, charge d'affaires in the ab
sence of Embassador llunyon.
The Swiss tour of the Crown Prince and
his brother. Prince Eitsl Frederick, was
extended to several points in the south of
Germany, all of the ancient seats of
theHohenzollern's being especially visited.
The young princes traveled incognito, but
this was not rigidly observed and the
public flocked to see them upon every oc
casion that afforded a chance. This was
particularly true of the female portion of
the public whose especial object of adora
tion was young Prince Eitel Frederick,
who is a general favorite. He is a merry,
roguish young fellow, and is taller and
broader than his brother, who is some
what prematurely sedate. The women de
plored that Eitel's beautiful golden locks
had been shorn, which had been done
in accordance with the strict military
training which forms a most important
part of the Prussian system of educating
The public eagerly read such personal
mention of the princes as was allowed to
appear in the press, even to the descrip
tions of their daily meals and drinks.
From these articles it seems that the
favorite dish of the youngsters is mashed
potatoes and pork cutlets. Their mother,
the Empress, acts as the guardian of their
Btomachs, and has their daily menu sent
to her for inspection. Their breakfast
usually consists of coffee, cold meat and
eggs, and their luncheon of old cold meat,
fruits and white wine diluted with seltzer.
For dinner or supper they are served with
steaks or chops, potatoes and fruits.
Dr. Schweininger has returned from his
excursion to the north. He paid a visit to
Prince Bismarck at Friedrichsruhe and re
ports that the ez-Chancellor had so well
stood the exertions incident to his birth
day fetes, etc., thanks to good care and his
quiet home life, that he (Schweininger)
does not advise an exchange of his retire
ment in the Sachenwald for the bustle and
discomiort of a visit to Kissengen or
Gastein. Nevertheless, Dr. Schweininger
informed the Prince that he would not
allow him to have any more receptions,
hoping that complete rest will fortify him
against the exactions of the winter.
Among the latest stories of Bismarck
worship is that of the rebuff given to Dr.
Hermes, Freissinige member of the Reich
stag, by Chief Ranger Muller, who is in
charge, of the royal hunts at Viensig.
Hermes, who is on the record as having
voted against President von Levetow's
proposals that the Reichstag officially
congratulate Prince Bismarck on his
birthday, wrote to Muller for permission to
shoot wild ducks on the Viensig lands.
Sluller, who is an intense admirer of
Prince Bismarck, replied to the applica
tion in these words :
"You helped in the Reichstag to with
hold the honor proposed to be shown by
that body to Prince Bismarck. Go and
shoot your ducks with his enemies else
where. You will shoot none here."

"Although the Czar and the Kaiser are

pro-German influence, which it was hoped
would grow through the Czarina, a Hes

itself, and the feeling prevails that by the

the influence of the orthodox priesthood
and others that she will not feel inclined

■ In spite of the denunciations of the Vos
sische Zeitung and other Journals of the
English boycotting of the Kaiser Wilhelrn
canal, the German ship-owners are in
clined to take sldes» with the English
owners and join in the general dissatisfac
tion, holding that the tariffs are exorbi
tant. Moreover, the German ship-owners
are grumbling at the management of the
canal, which they declare is not conducted
upon commercial or practical principles,
everything being bound up in red tape.
The Post comes out as a champion of the
shippers and in an article on the subject
declares that the inefficiency of the man
agement is aggravated by the discourtesy
of the pilots and subordinate officials.
Many captains, the Post declares, have
avoided the canal after their first ex
perience in its passage, preferring the
risks involved in the passage around the
£kaw. The Post contends that the limited
use of the new waterway by shippers
proves the truth of its charges, and appeals
to the Government to remedy the matter
by the application of practical and equit
able principles in the management of the

Preparations for the Conference to Be

MEMPHIS, TEX*., Aug. 4.-The com
mittee of arrangements for the conference
of silver Democrats to be held at Washing
ton on the 14th inst. had a session to-day,
and shortly after adjournment Senator
Harris left for the National capital to per
fect the arragements in that city. The
committee announces that Senators from
nine States have signified their intention
of attending the conference, and Congress
men from sixteen States will also be pres
ent. In addition to these leadeis of silver
Democrats there will be other gentlemen
from the States, and in all thirty-one
different States will be represented at the
Senator Harris, being asked concerning
the conference, said that it would un
doubtedly be a representative conference
of silver Democrats and its action would
be of the greatest importance. It is not of
course to be in any sense a convention, but
a mere assemblage of representative silver
Democrats, but it will be confined to those
who have been especially invited to attend.
It is desired that the silver Democrats in
every State will see that there is a fair rep
resentation sent from their respective States
and Bnch representatives are expected to
attend whether specially invited or not. It
is incumbent upon silver Democrats to see
that this is attended to.

About midnight on Saturday the chil

for their criminal mission. Before they
entered the millinery store of Miss Kitty
Dunphy, 633 Sixteenth street, which they
looted, they were forced to progress through
a long, dark alley, strewn with old dry
goods cases and other litter. They then,
in a professional manner, hoisted a large
transom and slipped into the store. They
carried several gunny-sacks, which they
filled in the basement with hats, ribbons
and laces, amounting in value to $60.
To allow their escape with the plunder,
they forced open a large iron grating with
improvised implements faund in the store.

NEW YORK, N. Y., Aug. s.— The Her
In the opinion of many Democrats a
formidable movement is likely to shape in
a short time in favor of the nomination of
William C. Whitney for the Presidency in
1896. At this moment the eye of nearly
every aspirant for the White House is
turned toward Mr. Whitney.
There is more than one substantial reason
in the possession of the Herald why Mr.
Whitney may be regarded as a Presiden
tial possibility of tne first magnitude. Mr.
Whitney is at Bar Harbor, Mr. Cleveland
is at Gray Gables. Mutual friends of the
two have been at both places, and have
talked to the two men. Secretary of War
Lamont has been one of these. Mr. Cleve
land thinks no man would be so strong as
ALL CAUSED BY A COW.
A. Living Obstruction Wrecked a Train
and Caused Death.
PHOSNIXVILLE, Pa., Aug. 4.— The
passenger train on the Pickering Valley
Railroad, due here at 8:40 o'clock, ran into
a cow a short distance from Pemberton,
three miles from here, to-night. The en
gine le-ft the track, several cars following
it over a steep embankment. The engineer,
Joseph Grow of Phoenixville, was instantly
killed, and the fireman dangerously hurt,
while half a dozen passengers were per
haps fatally injured. They were members
of the Balvation Army from here, return
ing from Fegieys Grove, where a meeting
was held to-day. The wreck occurred near
the spot where so many members of the
Pennypacker family were killed in a wreck
some years ago.
Fire in a Sllter Mine.
DENVER, Colo., Aug. 4.— The fire at
the silver mine, owned by J. C. Dexter, in
Leadville has not been extinguished,
though it has been confined closelv to that
mine. Fortunately, so far as learned, no
one was injured by the explosion of 200
pounds of giant powder late Saturday
night. The Forepaugh and adjoining
property are not in danger. The fire will
cause a damage of about $15,000.
Homicidal and Suicidal Mania-
BALTIMORE, Md., Aug. 4.— Frederick
A. Degroot fired a revolver with murderous
intent at his wife, Mrs. Katie Degroot, at
their home, 3007 O'Donneli street, this
morning, and, failing in his purpose,
turned the weapon against himself with
fatal effect. The cause of the act is not
known, but from his actions for the last
week it is believed that he was seized with
homicidal and suicidal mania.

KEY WEST, Fla., Aug. 4.— A letter
from Santiago de Cuba, under date of July

some days of quiet, the insurgents are
again beginning to make themselves, felt.
Another engagement has taken place at
Baire, the town where the first insurgents
gathered at the beginning of the present
revolution. The place was garrisoned by
a lieutenant and sixty soldiers.
On July 20 a detachment of 2000 rebels,
under the leadership of Rabi, appeared
there and demanded that the guards sur
render, whereupon the single officer with
his sixty troops entrenched themselves in
a church and kept the rebels at bay for a
day and a half. At the end of that time,
however, the lieutenant surrendered with

Great excitement prevails among Cuban
sngar-planters and cattle-dealers on ac
count of a proclamation issued by Maximo
Gomez on July 1. In it he forbids cattle
dealers to take catile into the cities under
penalty of death, and also forbids the
grinding of sugar cane, declaring that he

considered as traitors.
ROBBEO BY BRAKEMEN.
While Stealing a Ride a Michigan Youth
Was Boldly Held Up.
LANSING, Mich., Aug. 4.— Friday night
George King, a young man 20 years of age,
came to the home of Agent Townsend of
the Detroit, Lansing and Northern Rail
road in this city, and told a sensational
story about being held up and robbed by
two brakemen on the through freight com
ing east from lonia. King said he lived at
Battle Creek. He had been fishing up
north and was stealing a ride home
on the freight tram. Between lonia
and Lansing he was discovered and
held up by Brakeman Smith, Beech and
Coyne of Detroit, who shoved revolvers
under his nose, on top of one of the cars,
and then robbed him of tr.e small amount
of money he had. They also took his
satchel and everything of value he had on
his person. Townsend took the ycung man
to lonia yesterday and Assistant Superin
tendent Malone brought in the men, whom
King accused of robbing him. He identi
fied them and they were searched, and the
stolen articles found on their persons.
They' were immediately arrested on the
charge of highway robbery.

Shortly before 3 o'clock, when off the

An Alleged Victim of Holmes Said to Be

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Aug. 4. — Minnie
Williams, one of Holmes' aopposed vic
tims, is said to be in this city, and the dec
laration is made by one who claims to have
seen, conversed with, and heard a partial
admission of her identity from the
woman's^ own lips. The party who makes
the assertion is a Little Rock resident who
makes frequent trips to and is well ac
quainted in Memphis.
One of the parties to whom he gave this
information, and who will assist in the
development of the case, came over from
Little Rock to-day to look after some es-
sential details. He was not advised as to
the location of the woman, the acquaint
ance keeping this .secret until the receipt
of a photograph of Minnie William?,
which is expected to-morrow. Fortified
with this the Little Rock agents will come

a Match Thrown by a Little
OMAHA, Nebr., Aug. 4.— Little two
year-old Agnes Krimplopski, the daughter
of Herman Krimplopski, a laborer of Sec
ond and Walnut streets, met with a fright
ful death this afternoon.
While the mother was attending to some
work in the back yard she left her two
children playing on the floor in the front
room of the house. A four-year-old son
took a match from a table, and, lighting
it, threw it at his little sister.
Little Agnes' clothing was set afire, and
before the mother was attracted to the
house by the screams of the burning child
its entire body was a mass of flames.
The mother, in tearing the clothing from
her body, was severely burned also. Dr.
Paul Grossman was called, and for several
hours worked to save the little sufferer's
life, but without avail.

The mill was to have taken place last
night, and 300 sports took a Grand Trunk
train to a small suburban station called
Mount Olivet, twenty-five miles from this
city. When time was called there was a
row raised by the St. Louis man's
friends, who urged a new stakeholder. This
was used as a pretense for getting out of

across lots to shelter two miles from the
scene. Flints own backers were ashamed
of him, and he will never be able to make
another match in Chicago or vicinity.

The mandarins endeavor to blame cer

tactics of stopping telegrams.
The reports of the outrage are badly
mixed. The latest says it is now known
that ten persons were killed, including Miss

family, except two. The American mis

escaped, but the former was fearfully man

RETURN OF CORNELL MEN.
They Complain of the Garbled Accounts
of Their Race.
NEW YORK, N. Y., Aug. 4.— The
steamer St. Louis arrived yesterday.
Among her passengers was the Cornell
crew which rowed the Henley regatta. A
United Press representative met the St.
Louis at quarantine and interviewed Free
born, captain of the boat during the races.
When shown the report of the races fur
nished by the Chica.co Associated Press,
Freeborn said that the account was a mis
statcment of facts and was greatly exag
gerated. Tlie only man in the boat who
gave out was Feniiell, who caught a crab
at the mile when the boats were even. The
oar strnck him in the side, and the ac
cident decided the issue of the race. The
men were then, in his opinion, in just as
good physicial shape a? their rivals, and
it would have been a close race had the ac
cident not happened.
When asked as to whether the men were
overtrained or not, Freeborn said that he
did not think they were. He himself
weighed fourteen pounds more than he did
last year, while they did not work one
half as bard as tbey would have done
here, but they had three or four decidedly
out of condition, owing to climatic condi

For twelve years I have been afflicted witk
nervous prostration and general debility to t
Buch an extent that I was unable most of the
time to work. My sufferings were terrible. I
was discouraged, despondent and melancholy.
• • * A few months ago I placed myself
under treatment with the Hudson Medical
Institute. At first I was skeptical, but now I
can't recommend the Institute too highly.
C. C. FAIRCHILD.
• Nervous prostration, nervous debility, nerv-
ous twitrfiirigs of the eyes and all nervous
troubles should be treated by doctors who
make a special effort, a special study and a
special cure. If the doctors of the Hudson
Medical Institute cannot cure you there is no
power on earth that can cure you. Don't de-
spair. Consult them.

manhood begins to return and sexual forces de-
velop, the memory beeomes clearer and the intel-
lect sharper. Manhood in all its elements follows
the application of this wonderful belt.
