The Kaisers Dueling Speech
Special to the Gazette
London- May 17 The kaisers speech at
Bonno in favor of dueling has already
borne fruit in the sentencing of two stu
dents named Mann and Liedwitz
to three months imprisonment in
fortress for fighting a duel Ever
since the kaiser astonished the
faculty of Bonne and law abiding Germans
generally by speaking in favor of that
which the law condemns as crime there
has been a marked increase of recklessness
among the students and also a growing
carelessness as to the possible results of du
elling encounters In several instances the
usual precautions of face and arm
tion have been discarded and tluels
fought with an earnestness that
really meant blood Mann and Liedwitz
quarreled over a
TrIVAT AFFAIIt
and made haste to settle it by duel The
light was more than usually sanguinary
the combatants not being satisfied with
merely drawing blood but continuing the
combat with ferocity after each had been
seriously gashed Under former circum
stances the authorities would have regarded
the wounds as sufficient punishment and
pretended to be ignorant of tho crime but
since the kaisers speech things have been
getting to such a pass as to threaten de
moralization and it was thought necessary
to administer a lesson Tho young men
were arrested much to the astonisliment of
themselves and their friends and con
demned to a penalty that means a loss
of the summer season
The effect of the penalty is already said
to be wholesome and public opinion in Ger
many generally approves it
A MIAKY TMltOJfE
Two of the smaller kingdoms of Europe
are occupying more attention than the
great empires King Leopold of Bel
gium is said to be convinced that
his throne is shaky and as ho
apparently has no intentioii of abdicating
he is taking counsel with England and Ger
many as to the future should tho internal
troubles of the kingdom be too serious for
him to deal with Should either England
or Germany and especially Germany send
troops into Belgium it is understood
that France would not be long in
crossing the frontier in same direction
The sympathies of a vast majority of Bel
gians are overwhelmingly French and cor
respondingly hostile to Germany At
present there is a lull in the industrial agi
tation that has been convulsing Belgium
but there is no peace and apparently cannot
be while the suffrage question remains un
settled
BEKLIN ADVICES
state that changes in the Prussian cabi
net are interpreted as meaning the turn
ing over of internal affairs as far as possi
ble to Prince Henry whom the kaiser is
carefully educating to act in case of neces
sity as resent of Prussia Having formed
a cabinet completely in accord with and
inspired by his personal policy and
purposes the kaiser would be prepared at
any time to let Prince Henry take charge of
the stato while devoting himself to general
imperial affairs and especially the army
and navy German opinion is favorable tb
the judgment and intellect of Prince Henry
and the accession of the prince to power
would not be regretted

sity of improved coast defenses Exten

A TOUNG EARTHQCAKE
Special ttf the Gazette
DtLLAS Tnx May 17 At - oclock this
morning Dallas was visited by a terrific
storm of wind and rain that will be long re
membered by those who saw and heard The
thunder was deafening while tho constant
lightning was dazzling in brightness At
13the storm was at its highest when sud
denly thousands of people throughout this
city and Oak Cliff were aroused from their
sleep by a heavy rumbling sound followed
by the swaying of their houses People
sprang from their beds all wondering what
could have been the cause This morning
everyone was talking of the earthquake
shock which had been felt iu all parts of
the city Vindows were broken clocks
pictures and side wall ornaments were
knocked to the floors and broken These
reports came in from all parts of the city
while from Oak Cliff came the news that
many large window glasses in the stores on
Tenth street
HAD KEEN PEMOlWtFD
Goods in the stores located in South Dal
las were thrown from the shelves and
bunched together on the floor
The earthquake theory was soon ex
ploded however for the news soon spread
that the large powder magazine situated
south of town had been struck by lightning
and was now a thing of the past A visit to
the pla e where the magazine was revealed
a scene of desolation and wonderment
The magazine had been a brick building
lOxIJ feet and fifteen feet high It was
built on a rock foundation Not a
vestige of the building was in sight
not even a brick But a hole ten feet deep
and ISO feet in circumference had taken its
place Two hundred feet away had been
located the house of J W Armstrong the
magazine keeper but
XOTHIXft REMAINED
of it except a few annsful of kindling
wood Mr Armstrong his wife and three
children were asleep in the house at the
time of the explosion Mr Armstrongs
first knowledge of the explosion was when
he regained consciousness sometime after
at the house of a negro some distance from
his home The falling house boards had
hit him rendering him senseless while his
wife and children were unhurt Mrs
Armstrong pulled her husband from the
wreck taking him to the negro neighbors
The Armstrongs household goods were
all blown away except a sewing machine
and a few odds and ends A stable con
taining two horses at the rear of the house
was also razed to the ground and blown
away leaving the horses with scarce a
scratch Two dogs were killed and two
wagons were completely wrecked
AN OKCHAlill
of 1C0 peach and plum trees was entirely
uprooted and scarcely si vestige of it can bo
found
Five acres of garden have entirely disap
peared
On one side of the magazine was a strip
of woods A number ot acres of this wood
have been cut down as completely as if
done with an ax while the entire surface
of ground is covered to a depth of four
inches by the dirt taken from the hole
where the powder house stood Tho
woods are full of small pieces of brick no
larger than eggs
Fully one third of a mile from where the
explosion took place two trees about eight
inches in diameter were completely cut
down by rocks One piece of rock weighs
fully three hundred pounds while the other
rock is some smaller Near these trees is
the home of Alice Graham and it was
nearly destroyed Rocks tore the kitchen
room completely away while the entire end
of the sleeping room was torn off The
house was
FULL or EOCKS
and pieces of brick and strange to say
none of the inmates were injured
In another direction a barn a quarter of a
mile off had an end knocked out Houses
within a radius of a mile were all more or
less injured but the strangest part of all
was that no one was hurt
The magazine was situated near the
Texas Trunk railroad about three miles
from the city hall and was owned with its
contents By Frank J Smith Mr Smith
was seen and said his loss on powder alone
is over llyi0 Mr Smith says lightning
must have struck the building causing this
explosion The doors to the building were
of iron and it took the combined strength
of three men to lift one of them and
strange to say not a shred of either door
has yet been found
NEGRO rCEGLAES
About Sjlt oclock this morning i

couple of blocks away and made a run for
them The coons being hard pressed threw
the stolen goods into a liouu as thev passed
it and then made for the river bottoms
thereby escaping The pauts were re
covered

Special to the Gazette
Lancaster Tex Mny 17 This morning
between 3 and 4 oclock a sharp but short
shock of earthquake was noticed here
Little damage was done Some toilet ar
ticles pitchers dishes etc were thrown
down and broken It was raining and
some thought it was caused by heavy thun
der but it was more severe and of shorter
duration than the tremor accompanying
heavy thunder Quite a number report
having been suddenly awakened and almost
thrown from their beds News from Use
surrounding country report it felt every
where heard from
Professor Fosters earthquakes to be

American ship he has not been in any
American port and it is not probable that
Americans will interfere with him
One officer of tho Esmeralda in
the telegraph office stated laughingly
when asked as to the probability
of a combat that the Itata was already out
of danger and with plenty of coal and pro
visions to reach her destination This has
given rise to the report that the Itata coaled
at sea and continued the voyage while the
Esmeralda stopped to throw Americans oft
the track It is considered no conflict is
probable
