IMPERIAL PARTY'S ITINERARY

in Preparation at Vienna and
[Copyrighted, 1896, hy th»> Vnited Associated
BERLIN, Germany, Aug. 16.— The ques
tion which is now agitating the minds of
the inhabitants of the German capital is,
Will the Czar come to Berlin? Up to this
time it has merely been officially an
nounced that the Czar and Czarina will
be the guests of the Emperor at Breslau
and Goerlitz, but as Vienna and Paris will
be the scenes of elaborate receptions to the
Russian autocrat and his consort, the Ber
liners are jealously anxious lest the Czar
and Czarina should be slighted here. The
Berlin and provincial newspapers are
variously discussing the question and the
matter is the subject of much argument
in the cafes and other public places. Some
of the newspaper:* in the course of their
articles point out the advantages of Bres
lau as the scene of the reception of the
Czar in Germany, while the otners assume
s pessimistic tone and declare their belief
that it is the intention of the Russian Em
peror to come here, but to give to his visit
an aspect of minor importance as com
pared with his visits to the Austrian and
This sort of thing baa aroused the
leaders of the official circles, as evidenced
by an inspired article in the Cologne
Gazette, which not only sharply rebukes
the grumblers, but is seemingly intended
to give positive intimation to the public
that it is not the intention of Nicholas II
to visit the city of Berlin at all and has
not been from the first. The paper makes
no direct announcement to this effect,
however, and the whole matter probably
awaits the deiinite decision of the Czar.
There has been a prolonged series of
communications between the German and
Russian Cabinets in regard to the sequence
of visits proposed by the Czar, and it is
generally presumed that full and final
arrangements have been concluded. Some
time ago a tentative communication from
a Russian source suggested that the Czar
should make visits to Vienna, Munich
and Darmstadt, prior to his rreeting the
Kaiser, but tbis programme was in no
way acceptaDle to Emperor William, who
Eet the diplomatic Ministers to work to
effect the changes which he desired made
in the Czar's itinerary.
The result of the efforts of diplomacy
was that the Russian Cabinet maintained
their contention that Vienna must take
precedence over the German capital, inas
much as Emperor Franz Josef's was tne
older imperial court, Berlin coming next.
This view of the matter was acquiesced in
by the Emperor, and according to the
existing arrangements the Czar will fatart
from Krasnoe-Selo on August 24, accom
panied by Prince Lobanoff Rostovsky, the
Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs;
Count Yorontzoff-Daunbkoff, Chief of the
Ministry of the Imperial House and Im
perial Domains, and six other attendants
of exalted rank.
The customary extreme precaution will
be taken in the matter of guarding the
railroads over which the imperial party
will pass and in protecting bis Majesty at
other points along the route. Upon the
arrival of the Czar at Vienna he will be re
ceived at the station by Emperor Franz
Josef in person, wno will conduct the
Russian Emperor to the Hofburg Palace.
The programme for the entertainment
of the Czar in Vienna includes a grand
state performance of "Manon" at the Im
perial Opera-house, and a concert at the
Hofburg Palace on the following day. Be
fore finally leaving Austria the Czar will
pay a visit to the ex-Queen of Hanover
and the Duke and Duchess of Cumberland
The Czar and Czarina will arrive at
Breslau on Septembers, and ihe German
Emperor and Empress, with a brilliant
assemblage of princes and other notabili
ties, will greet them at the station, where
a guard of honor consisting of the Em
peror Alexander of Russia's Grenadiers,
of which the Czar Nicholas II is the chief ,
will await them. This regiment; together
with the Second Regiment oi Dragoon
Guards, of which her Majesty the Czar
ina is the chief, has been ordered to Bres
lau especially for the occasion. In addi
tion to these troops, 14,000 veterans will
form a double line through which the
Czar and Czarina and tneir suites will
pass upon leaving the station.
The two days oi the visit of the Russian
Emperor and Emnress to Breslau will be
largely taken up by military reviews and
parades, in the course of which the Czar
and Czarina will lead their respective
regiments past the Kaiser. A gay per
formance will be given in the theater in
honor of the visitors on the evenihg of
September 6. Among the personages of
note who are expected to assemble at
Breslau to take part in the honors to the
Russian Emperor and Empress are the
King of Saxony; Prince Albrecht, Regent
of Brunswick ; Prince Heinrich ; the Count
of Turin, nephew of King Humbert of
Italy; Prince Albert of Belgium; repre
sentatives of the courts of Bavaria and
Wurtemberg; Captain R. K. Evans, mili
tary attache to the United States em
bassy; attaches to the other foreign em
bassies and legations In Berlin ; the Earl
of Lonsdale and Lord Charles Beresford.
On the iuorn.ing of September 7 all of
the imperial guests will go to Goerlitz,
where there will be more military parades
and maneuvers. On the evening of Sep
tember 7 the Czar and Czarina, with their
suites, will take their departure for Copen
hagen, unless in the meantime it shall be
decided that the Russian imperials visit
Berlin. A suggestion that the three Em
perors meet at Breslau has been quite
seriously discussed, but it is cot probable
tnat such a meeting will take place.
Emperor William on August 2 will at
tend the unveiling of a moment in Berlin
in honor of the Third Regiment of Foot
Arrangements are in progress for a
sporting" week in Berlin from September
20 to September 27, upon the lines of the
annual sporting week in Dresden. The
Emperor has been asked to become a
patron of the sports. The programme as
at present contemplated will include a
water corso, a sailing regatta and flat
steeplechase races at Carlshorst, a concours
hippiq'Je on the exnibition grounds and a
battle of flowers, bicycling, athietic sports,
fencing and shooting contests at other
The health of Prince Bismarck, accord
;r« to the Hamburger Naclirictiten, is
now very cood indeed. The ex-Chancel
lor has resumed his former long walks,
and is even meditating a resum ption of
his practice of horsebacK riding.
Military circles are greatiy interested in
the whereabouts of Lieutenant Ahmed
Ilhami Bey, one of the Turkish officers
who was sent to Germany at the expense
of the Porte to learn the methods of the
German military system, who disap
peared. The Ottoman lieutenant got into
trouble with his landlay, whose hueband
brought suit against him in the courts.
The Turkish officer's declarations in court
seem to have involved him in a charge of
perjury, and fearing the result he fled
from Berlin. A warrant has been issued
for his arrest upon the charge of desertion
from the German army.
Henry Dalley of New York, who was
commissioned by the Congress of the
United States to inquire into the German
system of using free alcohol in manu
factures, has completed his investigations
and expresses himself as extremely grati
fied at the assistance he received from the
various German officials with whom he
came in contact. The conclusion arrived
at by Mr. Dalley as the result of his obser
vations is that it will be possible to pro
mote the use of free spirits in manufactur
ing in the United States without defraud
ing the revenues, and at the same time
avoiding tne existing high taxes imposed
upon manufacturers. He finds that those
who claimed that the use of free spirits in
German manufactures was impossible
were greatly mistaken.
Whatever semi-ofticial statements may
be made upon the subject, it will be a very
difficult matter to persuade the public
that the retirement of General Bronsart
yon Schellendorff from tbe Ministry of
War is not connected with the differences
which have arisen between him and Gen
eral yon Hahnke, the chief of the Em
peror's Military Cabinet, over the pro
posed changes in the military code of pro
cedure, which have already been explained
in these dispatches. If the statement
made yesterday that General Schellen
dorff's resignation is not due to the army
reform question be generally accepted fes
true, it will not make a particle of differ
ence to far as the bettnr informed circles
are concerned. The Yon Hahnke Mili
tary Cabinet embodies the eniira opposi
tion to the War Ministry and still controls
the Kaiser's action, consequently Yon
Hahnke's views are likely to prevail.
The departure of General Scheliendorff
from the Ministry strengthens the ex
pectation that Prince Hohenlohe's with*
drawal from the Chancellorship will not
be long delayed after the Czar has con
cluded his visit to Germany, as Prince
Hohenlohe, equally with General Schel
lendorff, is pledged to the Reichstag in
behalf of the reform of the military
courts. It may be, however, that the re
forms will be "temporarily sheived should
an Eastern crisis develop, Prince Hohen
lohe retaining his post until the inter
national situation clears up. It was the
Eaatern complications that caused Prince
Hohenlohe to go to Wilhelmshohe to see
the Kaiser, and upon his return here he
called the membeis of the Cabinet to

summoned to take part in a conference of
the ministers. These members of the Cab

gretted, as he has made hosts of friends

Threaten to Strike for Eight Hour* and
$3 50 a Day.
NEW YORK, N. V., Aug. 16. -Th
painters threaten to strike to enforce the
payment of the union scale of wages of
$3 50 a day and eight hours' work, and
the strike may begin to-morrow. There
are four or five painters' unions in this

painters, the decorative painters and New
York progressive painters — and all arc
controlled by an executive board, which
has issued the order to strike.
The German painters, of whom there
are about 200, are opposed to any strikes
at present, as they say the times are not
propitious for such action, and they have
called upon the executivs board to resign.

GENERAL FORSYTH'3 ORDERS
Transfers of Horses and Mules From
One Point to Another Must
WASHINGTON, D. C, Aug. Id—Un
usual economy seemg to be exercised jnst
now by military and naval officers. Last
week Assistant Secretary of ths Navy
McAdoo remitted eleven months of the
year's imprisonment which was imposed
upon Machinist Dunphy of the ram
Kathadin, dismissal to follow, on the
ground that it was too expensive to keep
him in prison that long.
General orders just issued by General
Otis, in command of the Department of
the Columbia, seem to show that the same
policy is to be iollowed in tb.e army. Two
soldiers were senteuced to dismissal fol
lowing a year's imprisonment for deser
tion. Reviewing the report of the court
martial, General Otis approves the sen
tence, after reducing the term of imprison
ment to six months.
Similar remission of punishment is also
made by General Forsyth, Department of

SAMOA NOT A PARADISE,
Americans Advised to Stay
Away From the Distant
Ex-Consul-Genera! Mullen Declares
That the Berlin Treaty
I* a Farce.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Aug. 16.-The
State Department has resolved to publish
the report of James H. Mullen, ex-Consul
General to Samoa, upon the government,
commerce, products and people of tnat
country, which has hitherto been held as
confidential, and it will appear in the Au
gust volume of Consular Reports now in
press. This report was submitted to the
department in September, 1895, when Mr.
Mnllen resigned his office, and was the
expression of his views after a year's stay
in the country. It is a lengthy document,
comprising nearly 100 printed pages, and
is valuable and interesting from almost
any point of view.
Mr. Mullen explains that one reason for
making the report was the receipt by him
of a large number of letters oi inquiry
from persons in the United States, who,
probably persuaded by roseate and mis
leading reports, expressed themselves as
anxious to leave the United States with
all its opportunities and advantages to
make their homes in these islands, where
they fatuously suppose a living could be
had without exertion and large profits
awaited the application of ordinary in
dustry or enterprise.
As a matter of fact, he says, the ex
pense of living in Samoa is two or three
times as great as in the United States. Of
the workings of the Government under
the treaty the writer says the real merits
of the situation, hazed in conflicting re
ports, biased by divergent interest, viewed
trom widely separated standpoints, is not
to be clearly understood at a distance.
Mr. Mullen reaches the conclusion that
the Berlin treaty is an utter and unre
lieved failure, and that, without surren
dering an iota of American prestige or
right in the islands or failing to maintain
the rights of the people, the United States
"should put an end to an arrangement un
der which a farce is perpetuated from
which no credit ensues.
The report contains abundant informa
tion regarding Samoa and its interests,
some of the figures being rather surpris
ing. Its entire trade m 1894 amounted to
less than $750,000; the total Government
and municipal revenue was less than
$8000, of which thirty-two Americans,
registered at the consulate, paid but $557;
customs duties were $27,500. The popula
tion of the island is estimated at 35.000.
Apia, the principal town, has 826 inhabi
tants and is without a wharf, a public
school, a tire engine or a foot of sidewalk.
George A Kline, the St. Louis Murderer,
\ Escapes With the Assistance of a
EVERETT, Wash., Aug. 16.— George A.
Kline was» arrested here yon Friday night
by City Marshal Getchell on a charge of
having shot and killed a policeman in St.
Louis seven years ago. The arrest was
the result of a long and persistent search,
and was brought about through corre
spondence from the Chief of Police of St.
Louis, who had located Kline on Puget
Sound some three months ago.
Kline had been working at the shingle
mill of Wade & Metcalf, and but a few
months ago was a railroad brakeman on the
Everett and Monte Cristo Railroad, and
was also engaged in switching in the
Northern Pacific yard at Tacoma.
After placing him inside of the cage of
the city lockup Marshal Getchell remained
in his office in the city building until a
few minutes alter 6 o'clock, when he went
out to get supper for his prisoner. He
was gone about an hour, and on his return
unlocked the outside door and called out,
"rielio, George ; here'ssomething to eat."
Receiving no response he glanced
through the bars, but could see no one.
He took his key to unlock the cage door
when he was thunderstruck to find that
the Yale padlock was gone and the bird
As the lock is protected from the inside
by a large steel plate it is plain that an
outside confederate must have helped
Kline to escape. The window of the
jailer's room had been raised and the lock

Captain Bartlett of Los
MONTEEY, Cal., Aug. 16.— The annual
shoot for the championship of San Jose,
WatsonvHle, Salinas and Monterey took
place, to-day at the Del Monte Shooting
Park. The meet was under tbe auspices
of the Monterey Wing Club. San Jose
was represented by twenty-two men from
the Garden City Cyclers' Gun Club. Wat
sonville was represented by the Cascade
Rod and Gun Club, and the Salinas City
Gun Club appeared for balinas. The
championship honors fell to San Jose.
Tbe meet opened with a sweepstakes
shoot between the Monterey and Salinas
teams, The first match Salinas won, but
in the second Monterey took the prize.
The San Jose and WatsonvHle teams ar
rived at Monterey on an excursion train
at 11:30 and proceeded at once to the
shooting park, where an old-fashioned
Spanish barbecue had been prepared for
the visiting teams. At 1 o'clock the cap
tains of the several clubs selected the men
to represent tuem. Umpire Thomas Allen
called time and the clay pigeons com<
menced to fly from the five traps.
The Watsonvilles were the first to take
their places. They did excellent^ work,
and the final defeat oi the team was sur
prising, considering t.-at it had a good
start. Salinas was the next club to shoot,
and it made a poor score. The Garden
City Cyclers' Gun Club was last, but piled
the score so high as to discourage all other
contestants. Anderson, especially, did
stood work, with Dr. Barker a close sec
The total average score was: San Jose,
first, 185 birds; Monterey, second, 165;
Salinas, third, 158, and Watsonville last,

After the regular shoot Captain Bartlett
of i Los Anueles gave a fine exhibition of
fancy shooting. He used a repeating Win
chester and was very quick. His main

drew the large crowd. Tbe game as origi
nally arranged to be played would have
been a great farce, as a keg of beer was to
be placed on |tbird base and only those
reaching the tiiird bag were to be entitled
to a drink. When it was decided to play
for the benefit of the Native Sons' fund
the players dropped the farcical side of the
affair and played in earnest. The editorial
and composing-rooms and job offices of
both newspapers were represented on the
team. The public were surprised at the
cleverness of some of tbe stick-wielders,
and while there were some rank plays
made by the teams the list of errors was
not nearly so large as was expected
Lynch of tlie Mail team knocked out a
home run and several two-base hits were
made. Tbe Indeppndent men had three
professional players in their team and the
Mails one, each side hiring a professional
catcher; but the first-named team had
Walters of the Stockton team and Gamble
who used to play professional ball in the
Northwest, in their offices and so had the
best of the game. The Mails proved to be
the best at the bat, but their hits were not
bunched and they did poor work in the
field. In the third inning the Indepen
dents piled up nine runs, which won them
the game. Black and Pace and Pace and
Newell alternated as the battery for the
Mails and Harlin and White were the bat
tory for the Independents. Gamble and
Walters also pitched for the last-named
The runs by innings were:

SAN JOSE, Cal., Aug. 16.— Tony Del
mas, a member of the Garden City Cyclers,
to-day lowered the record over the East
San Jose live-mile course to 12:37. This
beats the former course record of 13:02,
held by John Wing of the Olympic Club,
San Francisco, 25 seconds. Delmas was
paced by four tandems. If the pacing had
been a little better tne time would have
been cut to 12 :30.
The riders of tbe tandorns were Al Baker
and J. D. Lawrence. Roy Johnson and
Edgar Johnson, Gail Hardenbrook and
Julius Smith and Irving Ryder and R. R.
Shearman. The first tandem slowed up a
little too soon at the end of its pace and
Delmas was compelled to go around it,
and the third team rode a couple of miles
on ft fiat tire.
The fire-mile handicap road race of the
Garden City Cyclers was held over the
same course previous to Delmas' ride
against time. The handicapping was good
and the race was hotly contested from
start to finish. Both events were wit
nessed by a large number of spectators.
R. W. Bridgman, with a handicap of
1:30. won the race in 14:20. R. R. John
