M. DE WITTE'S MISSION.
The Czar's Minister of Finance
Said to Be Treating With
CENSORSHIP OF THE PRESS.
Kaiser William Causes the Arrest
of Another Socialist Editor for
BERLIN, Germany, Sept. 20.— The pro
longed stay in Berlin of M. de Witte, the
Russian Minister of Finance, simultane
ously with the visit to the German capital
of an agent of the Bank of St. Petersburg,
has given the appearance of truth tc re
ports that Russia is endeavoring to induce
Germany to participate in politico-finan
cial projects in China. M. de Witte, how
ever, has positively denied that his visit
has anything to do with finance, but there
are many who still believe that this as
severation is merely a diplomatic figure of
To one interviewer M. de Witte said he
had been spending a short season in Swit
zerland for the benefit of his health, and
was on his way home with his family. His
stay in Berlin was merely in gratification
of his desire to consult eminent German
physicians. He had, he said, no intention
of seeing any politicians or financiers
while here. The tact that he had ac
corded interviews with several bankers
6ince his arrival here, be explained, was
due to his interest in the formation of a
large electrical company in Berlin, in
which he hoped that the Disconto Gesell
schaft and other German bankers would
become interested. M. de Witte said he
had told the bankers with whom he had
interviews that if any further arrange
ments in connection with Russo-Chinese
finances were required they would be con
ducted through French bankers exclu
sively and not through German houses.
The Cologne Gazette, apropos of the re
ports that several Berlin bankers had been
sounding Minister de Witte on the ques
tion of taking a share in a new Russian
state loan, warns them to keep aloof from
all financial projects in which M. de Witte
is concerned, and, pursuing the subject,
reminds them that since he had obtained
control of the finances of Russia the debt
of that empire had been increased by
"If Russia herself or any Russian enter
prise wants any more money," says the
Gazette, "let the French lend it to them."
Last Friday's newspapers circulated the
story that M. de W r itte had broken off
negotiations in connection with his project
for the formation of an electrical company
and had suddenly left Berlin. This story
has been exploded, however, as M. de
Witte is still here. It had its origin in the
departure of the agent of the Bank of St.
Petersburg, who, by the way, lived in the
same hotel with M. de Witte while here.
The projected visit to Berlin of the King
of the Belgians, which it was surmised had
relation to affairs in the Congo State, has
been either indefinitely delayed or finally
abandoned, no one seems to know which.
It is understood from current gossip, how
ever, that the Emperor had a strong dis
like to personal negotiations on the sub
ject, and caused King Leopold to be
informed that the negotiations must be
conducted through diplomatic channels.
Despite the complaints made by the
Chambers of Commerce at Kiel and Stet
tm, as well as by others, the Government
has declined to reduce the tolls of the Bal
tic-North Sea canal. The protest formu
lated by the Stettin Chamber of Commerce
calls attention to the fact that during the
month of August only 718 vessels passed
through the canal, and this at the old
rates. On Tuesday next, October 1, the
new rate, which increases the tolls by 25
per cent, will go into effect. As the sys
tem of lighting the banks of the canal by
electricity is very defective vessels ventur
ing through the canal are likely to be
stopped during many a long winter night,
and it is certain that tnis prospect will
still further and to a great extent lessen
A notable incident in connection with
the lighting of the canal occurred a few
days ago. A pole carrying a wire charged
with the full power of the plant fell, and
two workmen, passing along the bank in
the darkness, came into contact with it.
One of the men dropped dead upon the
fallen wire and the other was thrown back
ward insensible. They were found by
other workmen, who tried to remove the
dead body from the wire, but they were
forced to desist by the strong shocks they
received, and the Dody remained where it
was until the current was turned off some
A lady connected with the entourage of
the Empress has Riven some very interest
ing details of the daily life and opinions of
the Kaiserin. The imperial lady, it seems,
is by no means an admirer of the "eman
cipated woman," and holds that matri
mony is woman's natural destiny. Never
theless, in several cases her Majesty has
advised ladies under exceptional circum
stances to adopt a profession instead of
contracting matrimonial ties, and has lent
her personal assistance to carry out her
advice. The Empress gives strict personal
attention to the regulations of her house
hold, and often pays visits of inspection to
the kitchen, which is as simple in its ap
pointment as that of the household of a
The Emperor is harsh in his treatment
of the young Princes, and in these cases
the Empress smooths over their sorrows
in true motherly fashion. If the tutors of
the youngsters find them inattentive to
their studies she takes their teaching in
hand for an hour or so, and if they become
unruly does not shrink from using the
cane upon their princely oacks. The
Crown Prince, however, is excepted from
this treatment, as he is now of an age
which places him beyond this jurisdiction.
The Princes are great stamp collectors,
and spend a good deal of their spare time
in arranging their collections. The Em
press, in supplying a new stamp or observ
ing that they have come into possession
of one of a kind they never had, plies
them with questions in regard to the geo
graphical location and chief characteristics
of the country from which it came. Her

A sensational trial which has attracted
widespread attention has just been closed
at Darmstadt, with the result that an im
postor has been sentenced to two months
and a half in prison, and a titled lady is
under arrest for perjury. The impostor is
Adelbert Tomba, who masqueraded under
the name of Count yon Nesselrode.
Tomba is the son of a tailor of Buda-
Pesth. He became a student in the Hei
delberg University and after leaving the
college obtained a situation as a private
tutor in the family of Count Waldeck, a
wealthy land-owner having estates in Ger
many and Hungary. Tomba was sent to
Count Waldeck's " estate in Hungary.
Some time afterward a person styled
Count George yon Nesselrode arrived at
the Waldeck estate and schloss at Kurn
bach, in the Duchy of Hesse, where he
was received as a guest by the Countess
Waldeck, who, with her grown-up daugh
ters, had left Count Waldeck in Hungary.
Nesselrode for a number of months posed
as a friend of the family and was regarded
by the domestics as the master of the
house. The inhabitants of Kurnbach,
however, were scandalized by the sup
posed relations existing between Nessel
rode and the Countess and began hooting
them whenever they were seen together in
public. Finally the popular indignation
became so great that as they were driving
out together one day a large crowd col
lected and after hooting the pair and pelt
ing them with missiles drove them through
the town and inside the castle gates. After
getting safely within the gates Nesselrode
drew a revolver and fired it over the heads
of the mob. The police were called, but
NcsM-lrode had vanished. He was caught
later, however, and locked up in the town
When he was arraigned before the police
authorities next day he persisted that he
was really the Count yon Nesselrode, and
Countess Waldeck under oath maintained
that he was a genuine Count of the name
he had given. Even before the court,
when absolute evidence of the man's iden
tity as Tomba had been produced, the
Countess stoutly declared upon the wit
m-ss-stand that she had not recognized the
Count as the former tutor Tomba. but had
honestly believed him to be Count yon
Nesselrode, which she still believed.
Tomba was sentenced to six weeks in
prison for firing his revolver, and an addi
tional sentence of a month's imprison
ment was pronounced upon him for using
a false name.

sion of the trial and is now In ja-l awaiting

TRYING THE ST. PAUL.
Forty-Mile Initial Trip
of the New Ocean
GREAT SPEED PREDICTED
It Is Thought the Record of
the St. Louis Will Be
READY FOR AN OFFICIAL TEST.
Cramp's Shipmaster to Command
When the Actual Trial Is
ON BOARD STEAMSHIP ST. PAUL,
OFF REEDY ISLAND (Del.), Sept. 29.—
The International Navigation Company's
new steamship St. Paul left Cramp's ship
yard. Philadelphia, this morning at 7:10
o'clock for her trial trip and made the run
of forty miles to Reedy Island in four
hours. When the vessel arrived off here
anchor was dropped to await the high
tiite. Although it was Sunday morning
and Philadelphia's river front was practi
cally deserted the St. Paul was saluted by
every steam craft she passed, and her
whistle was almost constantly replying to
salutes until she had passed the city.
It is a matter of no small danger for a
ship of the St. Paul's draught to make her
way over the shoals in the Delaware
River, and Pilot Lewis Chambers picked
the way as carefully as an old woman
crossing the crowded streets of a busy city,
and at no time did lie push the St. Paul
faster than thirteen knots.
The anchor was weighed at 6 o'clock this
evening and the course shaped for Dela
ware breakwater. The run to the break
water—sixty-live miles — will be made in
about four and a half hours. The ship to
night will anchor at The Brown, a few
miles above the breakwater. To-morrow
morning compasses will be adjusted and
otficers of the International Navigation
company and some few invited guests will
be tal^n aboard from Lewes, Del., where
they came by train from Philadelphia.
Then the St. Paul will go to sea, the
course being shaped for Gloucester, Mas?,
it is expected that the vessel will arrive off
Gloucester some time Tuesday afternoon.
She will not enter Boston harbor, but,
weather permitting, will come to anchor
off Gloucester. The naval officers consti
tuting the Government trial board will
come aboard at Gloucester, and on
Wednesday the trial run will be made.
After the trial the ship will proceed to
New YorK. arriving there Thursday.
In her recont four-hour trial in the Eng
lish Channel the St. Louis, a sister ship,
averaged 22.03 knots an hour, which was
the fastest time ever made in a trial of
that length of time by a passenger steamer.
Some changes, principally in lengthening
and increasing the diameter of the two
smokestacks, have been made in the St.
Paul since she and the St. Louis were de
signed and her builders expect her to ex
ceed her sister ship's time on trial. They
will not commit themselves, however, be
j'ond sayinglthat she will make 22 knots
per hour, but it is safe to say they will be
disappointed if she does not average 22.2.3
or even 22.50 knots on Wednesday. She
would probably loc the latter figures easily
if the same conditions prevailed in the
engine-room as is the case on trials of
Government vessels, when the most ex
pert firemen and stokers are at work feed
ing the fires with the best hand-picked
coal. In the engine-rooms of the St. Paul,
however, the force that will man her on
her regular runs is at work and only ordi
nary bituminous coal is in her bunkers.
Captain Jameson, who will command
the ship when she begins her trips from
New York for Southampton, is in charge
now, but Captain Sargent, Cramp's ship
master, went to Boston to-day to prepare
for the trial trip, during which time he
will be in command. The run will be
made over the regular Government course
of forty knots between Cape Ann and Cape
Porpoise, Maine, and, as in Government
trials, it will be staked off with boats at
A noticeable thing in the run down the
river to-dny was the stability of the ship.
The vibration of the engines was not at all
perceptible, so smoothly did they run.
PEARY NOT DISCOURAGED.
Ready to Resume His Quest
of the North Pole Next
His Trip to the Arctic Waters Not
Wholly Barren of
BOSTON, Mass., Bept. 29.— Lieutenant
Peary, who reached Halifax after his
Greenland trip last week, arrived in this
city to-night. He was in the best of health,
and while the climate has had consider
able effect on him since his return, it has
not affected him as much as he thought it
would. The remainder of the party, in
cluding Mrs. Peary, who accompanied her
husband on his trip, is still at Halifax and
the Kite will be laid up in dock
there until next spring when another start
for the north will be make. Mr. Peary is
very well satisfied with the results of the
"We had very hard luck but we have ac
complished a great deal under the circum
stances. There has been an extraordinarily
large quantity of ice north thia year and it
is to this that we can lay most of our mis
fortune. The weather has been grand and
if the other conditions had been as perfect
we should have easily accomplished what
we set out to do.
"The sun was seen for the first time
February 17, after being hidden since Oc
tober 23. During that time the weather
was very cold, but considerable work was
accomplished on the northern coast of
Baffins Bay and an extended collection of
the natural objects made. As soon aa the
warm weather came we were able to camp
in the region near Cape York and here we
made several important discoveries of the
glacial conditions of the region, which has
been a matter for dispute among geolo
gists in the past. On our return journey
to the lodge our provisions were all gone
and only one dog remained with us.
"The Kite ariived in Whale Sound July
31, but the ice floes prevented her from
entering Bowdoin Bay. The relief arrived
overland from McCormick Bay on Au
gust 6. Lee, Hanson and I returned with
the|party, and on our arrival the Kite sailed
immediately. We have not returned home
empty handed, for we have on board the
most valuable collection ever brought
from the Arctic regions. In addition, we
have made a most thorough survey of
Inglefield Gulf audits neighborhood, while
onr geological surveys have been most im
portant and extensive. The other mem
bers of the party will sail directly for New
York on Tuesday."
When asked whether he would return to
Greenland next year he said that the
matter rested with the Government, but
that if the necessary funds could be raised
he surely would go, as he had the work
well in hand and was in a position to push
it forward with energy. He had already
received enoouraeement from several
sources and his return seemed assured.
He will spend this winter in preparing the
various collections and seeing to their
placing in the Smithsonian Institute and
then if occasion requires it will be ready
to sai' early next year.
FRANK PHILLIPS DYING.
Was One of the Members of the James
and Younger Gang-
HUNTINGDON, W. Va., Sept. 29.-
Frank Phillips, one of the members of the
James and Younger gang during its tour
through Kentucky and Tennessee in the
early seventies, and later a figure in the
McCoy -Hatfield feud, is dying fifty miles
south of herein Kentucky from bloou
r-oisoning caused by a bullet wound. A
few days ago, on the line between Virginia
and Kentucky, he enticed Frank Arnette
out and shot him to denth. During the
dying moments of the latter, he fired a
bullet into Phillips that struck a vital
point, and then dropped back a corpse.

The last hours of the scientist were filled
with pain. Professor Pasteur's condition
became seriously worse on the evening of
Friday last. Albuminuria was observed,
the heart became very weak and painful,
and violent spasms became frequent.
About 9 o'clock yesterday morning
Professor Pasteur's wife asked him
whether he suffered much pain. The
dying man faintly whispered: "Yes."
This was the last word that he uttered.

bed. After death Mme. Pasteur closed her
husband's eyes and placed a crucifix in his
hand. 1 !.
At L'Etang Park, in a room on the first
floor of a ramshackle building, over stables
where a hundred horses are kept for use in
connection with the preparation of diph
theria serum, lie the remains of the great
chemist. The chamber has a low ceiling
and the walis are covered with cheap, green
paper. A small carpet is spread on the
lioor. There are two wicker-seated chairs
and an armchair. The body lies on a cur
tainless wooden bedstead. On a plain
table stands a candlestick, in which are
lighted candles. Close by in a cupboard,
placed between two windows, are the books
that M. Pasteur used to take to Villeneuve
from Paris whenever he paid a visit there.
The unpretentious character of the sur
roundings seems to throw into relief the
reposeful features and strong, benevolent
face of the dead man. The hands are
clasped on the crucifix which Mme. Pas

died. On the whole coverlet are arrayed
many of the orders and other decorations
which were conferred upon M. Pasteur
during his lifetime. The members of the
family watch mourning by the bedside.
The body of M. Pasteur will probably be
embalmed to-night. The public will be
admitted to view the remains to-morrow.
While the United Press correspondent
was in the death-chamber M. Poincare,
French Minister of Public Instruction,
His mission was to request the family to
allow the Government to give the dead
scientist national obsequies and to inter
the body in the Pantheon. M. Valery, the
husband of M. Pasteur's daughter, on be
half of the family, deferred an acceptance
of these offers until M. Octave Gerard, M
Pasteur's executor and colleague in the
academy, reads the will of the dead man
to the assembled family to-night. Never
theless, it is already settled that the body
will be exposed in the library of the Pas
teur Institute. It is understood that the
family desires to have the interment fit the
garden of the Pasteur Institute and will
request the Government that this be done.
LONDON, Eng., Sept. 29.— A dispatch
from Paris to a news agency says it has
been decided to inter the body of M. Pas
teur in the garden of the Pasteur Institute
in Paris, in accordance with the wishes
of his family. After services in Notre
Dame Cathedral the body will be placed
temporarily in a vault at Montmartre.

An Official Inquiry Into

The. Southern Pacific Cannot

HELD BY AN AGREEMENT.
Plan of the Octopus to Cripple the
Union Pacific Likely to
WASHINGTON, D. C, Sept. 29.— Law
officers of the Government are interested
in a rumor which was printed last week to
the effect that the Southern Pacific Rail
road Company had notified the
Union Pacific Railroad Company that after
November it would refuse to run trains
from Ogden to the Pacific Coast in connec
tion with the Union Pacific (rains, thus
practically shutting out the latter from
Pacific Coast business. No official intima
tion to this effect has reached either the
Department of Justice or the Inter-State
Commerce Commission, but the matter is
under inquiry by the officials of both
divisions of the Government.
No expression of opinion regarding the
possibilities of the case will be made by
either department, in view of the fact that
it may come before them for action. All
that they will say is, in the language of
Attorney-General Harmon, that "all the
rights of the Government, whatever they
are, will be fully protected."
A judicial decision has recently been
made respecting the obligations resting
upon a raiiroad company to establish and
maintain "running connections" with an
other, and it is of interest in this connec
The Oregon Short Line and Utah North
ern Railroad Company brought suit against
the Northern Pacific Railroad Company to
compel it to accept at Portland from the
Short Line in the latter's cars freight des
tined for Puget Sound ports, advance to
the delivering company the amount of
freight charges due it, and collect the
whole transportation charges from the
consignee at destination.
The order was asked by the Short Line
Company on the ground that it was a
"running connection," sanctioned by
custom among railroads, and was required
not only by the terms of the charter of the
Northern Pacific Company, but by the
interstate commerce act as well.
Judge Field of the Supreme Court on
circuit, refused to issued the order, Judge
Deady of the District Court dissenting. On
appeal to the Circuit Court of Appeals, the
action of Judge Field was sustained in an
opinion rendered by Judge McKenna.
Adopting the definition used by Judge
Field, the Court of Appeals said:
"The running connection which must
be permitted by the defendant is not a run
ning over its line, but only in connection
with it— a provision intended to secure the
transportation and exchange of freight
between connecting lines, and not the use
of each other's roads by the cars of such
companies. * * *
"We are of the opinion that a running
connection of one road with another, with
in the meaning of the defendant's charter,
only includes such arrangements as to the
time of arrival and departure of trains,
and as to stations, platforms and other
facilities as will enable companies desiring
to connect to do so without detriment or

There is, however, a provision in the act
granting a charter to the Union Pacific
Railroad Company and a land grant
to the Central Pacific Railroad Com
pany, which it is believed can be
invoked to prevent the Southern Pa
cific Company from carrying out
its reported intention of breaking off con
nection with the Union Pacific atOgden,
reducing it to the level of a purely local
line and depriving it of the power to meet
its obligations to the Government as re
gards its bonded debt. Section 12 reads in
•' 'The track upon the entire line of rail
road and branches shall be of uniform
width (the gauge was afterward fixed by
act of Congress) so that when completed
cars can be run from the Missouri River to

and used for all purposes of communica

the public and Government are concerned,

FOR THE BIG FIGHT.
Florida Athletic Club Reported to Have
Withdrawn the Money.
AUSTIN, Tex,, Sept. 29.— 1n sporting
circles to-night it is reported that Corbett
and Fitzsimmons have been notified that
the right is off and the Florida Athletic
Club has withdrawn the prize money.
Both men have been asked if they will en
ter the ring either October 7 or 10 at
Dallas. This move, it is said, ia for the
purpose of thwarting the Governor.
ST. LOUIS, Mo., Sept. 28.— A special
from Dallas, Tex., says that the Florida
Athletic Club and its friends will make an
appeal to the lawmakers of the Twenty
fourth Legislature not to pass a bill with
an emergency clause attached prohibiting
pugilistic exhibitions. A bill without an
emergency clause would not take effect
until January 1, 1896.
The club will show that it made an in
vestment of $70,000 in good faith, and made
contracts which must be met, when there
was no law to interfere with the enterprise.
It will take 21 of 31 votes iv the Senate and
36 of 128 in the House to pass the bill with
the emergency clause. Citizens of that
city are hopeful that the Governor will not
be able to secure the necessary two-tnirds.
