BAD FOR THE KAISER.
Probabilities Are the New
Reichstag- Is Opposed to
the Army Bill.
Government Parties Have
Lost Three Seats and
Social Democrats Poll an
Enormous Vote in the
More Activity Displayed by
Socialists Than Any Oth
Bbblik, June 10.— At 2 o'clock this

Indicate that thirty-six have been car

parties favoring the bill, and nineteen
Rre in doubt between the government
and the opposition parties, with the
chances In tne majority of them strongly
iv favor of the government. The gov
ernment parties have lost three of their
former seats, two to the Richterists or
Social Democrats, as the second bal
lots shall decide, and one to -a South
German Democrat. The government
lias won one seat from the opposition.
TheSocialDemoorats have won twoseats,
besides having secured many chances
for new victories on the second ballot.
A singular feature of their two accom
plished victories In the new fields is
that they won at the expense of the
Kichter Radicals, also enemies of the
army bill, and irot, as was expected, at
the expense of tho National Liberals,
the friends of the bill. Although the
Social Democratic gains are undoubtedly
enormous, they will not prove so large
probably as the reports so far have in
dicated. The returns from the cities
come In first, and it is in the cities that
the Social Democratic candidates
always run best.
Hut Day to Vote.
Election day brought tropical beat to
all parts of the empire. In Berlin the
pavements were scorching. Apparently
the election has been a notably quiet
one. in Berlin there was absence of all
excitement. The wealthier classes
seemed to be apathetic as to the out
come of the elections. The authorities,
fearing disorders among the voters of
the lower classes, had troops ami the
reserve police force keep in their bar
racks so us to be ready to suppress any
outbreak. Very few voters went to the
polls before "noon. At that hour
the workmen left the factories.
They walked in groups to the voting
Stations and deposited their ballots.
The stations of Hie Fourth and Sixth
districts, located in Acker strasse,
liruennen strasse, Chausser strasse, the
Kottbuser Btrabse, the Frankfurter
Btrasse and at the Uosenthaler Thor,
were crowded. Groups of men sur
rounded the election posters searching
for information as to the locations of
stations at which they were to vote.
There are 628 stations in the city, 500 of
them being in taverns ami restaurants,
while the remaining 128 are in school
buildings and vestry halls.
Chancellor yon Caprivi and Dr. yon
Boetticher, secretary of the imperial
home otlice, voted at the Kaiserhof sta
tion. They apparently believed in de
positing their ballots as soon as possi
ble, for they were
Among tbe Earliest Voters

to the postoftice received five hours'
leave of absence in order that they
might vote. Arrangements were made
by which the Bremen also and the men

lines might so to the polls in relays.
Each relay was allowed two hours for
A number of men and women gath
ered at 8 o'clock yesterday morning at
the Bock brewery, the headquarters of
the Socialists in the Second district,
where Fisher ran. They devoted them
selves to receiving orders for electoral
tickets, while others scattered leaflets
in behalf of the party, broadcast.
The Socialists displayed more act
ivity than any of the other po
litical groups. Women seemed to be as
deeply interested in the success of the
Social Dakoerats as were the men of
the partv^Tlnd they labored in every
way to aid the candidates. Early in the
d;iy the .Social Democrats were roused
by a dispatch to the Kaale Gazette (Lib
eral, to the eHVct that Fritz Kunert,
Social Democratic candidate in the
Halle district, had- been arrested on a
charge of inciting to theft while he was
making his last campaign speech.
This dispatch, however, was followed
during the afternoon by others, from
which the social Democrats could draw
only encouragement. At the headquar
ters <>i the executive committee tele
gram after telegram brought news of
Social Democratic gains. An enormous
vote evidently 'was being polled for
socialist candidates in the Rhine pro
vinces, Saxony, Hamburg, Frankfort on
the Main and other industiial centers.
The agrarians were highly elated when
they learned in the afternoon that
Count Herbert ISisiiiart-k
had run so unexpectedly well in tiie
Jericliow district that a reballot proba
bly would be necessary. The general
expectation was that Count Herbert
would be beaten easily by his free trade
antagonist. The early afternoon, re
ports brought equally surprising news
from tbefijrst Berlin district, where Col.
yon Egidy, anti-Semite, was said to be
polling a heavy vote among the wealthi
est and best educated voters. His
candidacy was ridiculed during the
campaign by ail the Liberal newspa
pers. The light was supposed before
today to be between his Socialist and
Rlchterist opponents, is'ot a small part
of CoL Yon Kiddy's anti-Semite support
is due to the efforts which Berlin society
women have made in his interest. Cur
iously enough, many .lews from the
bourse also supported him.
At 0 o'clock nothing positive was
known of the results of the election, al
thoutrh dispatches irom 120 electoral
districts indicated that the Socialists
had secured thirty of them, and the
Conservatists. RJchterists (Radical Peo
ple's party) and Liberal Clericals had
divided the other ninety among
them. Between 4 and 0 o'clock the
heal increased almost beyond endur
ance in the street. The beer halls
and cafes became crowded with men
anxious to get the first news from the
polls, and enormous quantities of beer
and wine were drunk. All the work
men left the shops shortly after 4
o'clock. At first they thronged the
streets near the polling stations, then,

< !«»<•<! I |> Socialist tl'.'diiiir".
The police of this city closed up
Socialist mass meetings at the tfermsnie
hall, tho Tivoli, the Coucordia, the
Eiyseum and the Wedding hall, owing
to overcrowding. The crowds poured
cheering into the streets, where they
were quickly dispersed by mounted
police. During; the day the Socialists
distributed halt a million hand
bills here. They spent 14,000 marks in
the tilth division alone — the largest sum
ever expended by a single party in a
Jierlin constituency. The Conservatives
and anti-Semites also walked hard.
The Socialist vote in Berlin foots 20.000
over the vole of 1800, Tho Socialists
have been equally successful in Hamburg
and Altouu. Altogether the AOte promises
to be heavy. The women rendered
great assistance In the Socialist canvass.
Many university .students canvassed for
Conservative candidates. In spite of
tremendous exertions the united Con
servatives and anti-Semites have
lost 3,000 votes as compared with
tho figures of ls'Ai, and
the Radicals have lost nearly
20,000 votes. It is stated that the so
cialists are likely to win three out of
four of the reballots against the It.id
icals. In Berlin not a single candidate
pledged to support the army bill has
gained even the borren honor of a re
ballot. The prospects of a government
majority appears to be vanishing,
ltoughly speaking, the Socialist vote
shows a treat increase everywhere.
The Radical vole lias diminished
greatly, chiefly. It would seem,
because the better class of the Radical
party voted for the anti-Semitic candi
dates. Not 10 per cent of the votes cast
in Uerlin were given in favor of the
army bill. Seldom has the city spoken
in such emphatic tones. The provincial
returns appear to be equally emphatic
In the same direction. The great suc
cess of the Social Democrats has caused
a profound sensation.
Carnot's Condition Serious.
Paris, June 15.— 1t is believed that
the condition of President Carnot, who
is said to be suffering from a liver
trouble, is much more serious than is
slated in the ofiicipl reports regarding
his illness. The Siecle, the Republican
newspaper,says that M. Carnot id suffer

FREED FROM PRISON.
Court of Cassation Quashes the
Sentences of the Panama Ca
Charles de Lesweps Must Serve a
Year lor Bribing Members of
Pakis, .June 15.— Considerable excite
ment has been caused by the decision of
the court of cassation on the appeal of
Charles de Lesseps and the other de
fendants convicted of fraud in connec
tion with the Panama Canal company.
The court handed down its decision to
day quashing the sentence on the ground
that the statute of limitation covered
the offenses charged, and that the
indictment oii which the prisoners were
tried was irregular. In consequence of
this decieion, M. Eiffel was at once
liberated from prison. Then* were live
defendants convicted on the trial, which
ended on Feb. 9 last. These were Fer
dinand de Lesseps, his son Charles,
Marius Fontaine, Henri Cottu and Gus
tav Eiffel. Ferdinand de Lesseps was
sentepced to live years' imprisonment
and to pay a fine. The decision of the
court sustains the contention of the ap
pellants, and, aside from the defective
indictment, declares that they are en
titled to their liberty. And thus ends
one of the greatest criminal cases
France has ever known, in which ihe
names of men prominent In political
and social life were badly smirched, and
which caused one man— Baron Keinach
— to commit suicide, and two or three
ottiers to flee the country.
M. Fontaine was also notified of the
reversal of his sentence, and he was at
once given his liberty. In addition to
tiie sentence of live years' imprison
ment Imposed upon M. Charles de Les
seps, he was sentenced at a later trial to
serve a year for bribing certain mem
bers of the chambers to vote for the
Panama lottery bond bill. This sen
tence has not been set aside. The sen
tence of one year's imprisonment ran
concurrently with the heavy sentence.
De Lesseps chose to serve the one year's
sentence in a cell, as, by this means, ac
cording to the prison regulation, the
time was reduced one-half. It is prob
able tli at the unserved portion of the
sentence will be immediately remitted,
and that M. de Lesseps will leave the
hospital as soon as he is able.
SURPRISED BY DENT.
Sudden Postponement of a Heavy
Damage Suit. -
Brooklyn, N. V., June 15.— The suit
brought by Father Dent against the
Order of St. Francis for $50,000 damages
and reinstatement in the order, came to
a sudden close today. Just before the
adjournment of court yesterday Father
Dent presented as evidence a copy of
the rescript, which declared that the
rescript presented by the defense show
ing that Father Dent had been expelled
from the order was fraudulent. The
document which Father Dent offered in
evidence was issued. by the sacred con
gregation of bishops and regulars at
Home. Counselor Bliss said this morn
ing that the existence of such a .docu-.
ment was a complete surprise to him
and his clients, twid he. therefore, asked
for the withdrawal of a juror, or a
practical adjournment of the case, to
enable the defense to secure deposition?
from Koine as to the genuineness of the
document offered by Father Dent. The
request was granted and Father Dent
awarded §250 to cover the costs.

Main Address of the
Chicago, June 15.— German day at
the world's fair has come and aone. It
was,welcomed in this morning with a
melodious chiming of bells, and ushered
out late tonight with a glorious pyro
technic display. It was the grandest
day the White City has yet seen, and it
recorded the largest attendance that has
yet assembled there. Pleasure-loving,
patriotic Germans and Gormau-Amer
icans gathered in from all over the
country, anu joined the Chicago Teu
tons In making the event a grand suc
cess. Near a quarter of a million p"eo
ple paseed through tho turnstiles into
the grounds, ana more than half of
them were there to take a hand in
celebrating German day.
Never did the white palaces of the
fair look more beautiful, and never did
they entertain a more joyous pleasure
loving crowd. It was also the anni
versary of the day when George Wash
ington assumed the control of the united
continental armies in the War of the
Revolution, and the anniversary of the
accession of the present emperor of the
Fatherland to the throne, so, that the
day is dear alike to the German-Amer-
leans and to the Germans who are yet
The I. ii ion i. Ruler.
The day broke bright and clear. There
was not a cloud In the sky, and a refresh
ing breeze had been blowing since early
dawn from the lake, causing the 10,000
flags ot bright colored steamers to float
and flutter gaily from the tower 3 and
pinnacles of the marble-like temples of
art and science, which make up the
White City. No writer of fairytales
in the Fatherland ever described a
scene in wonderland more beautiful or
more grand and imposing.
The winding ways were thronged
with merry makers In holiday dress; on
the beautiful lagoons were scores of
gaily decorated, romantic gondolas and
brightly trimmed electric launches, and
iv and out of the bayou* and arched
bridges were floating "graceful swans,
while the fountains scattered their
gorgeous rainbow spray in the sun
light. Bauds of skilled musicians filled
the air with tur.eful strains, so that
withal the placo was like a very para
dise. Germans seldom do things by
halves, and when it was decided to have
a German day at the fair, they set abont
to make it a glorious success, with the
vigor and thrift that marks the Teu
tonic race. There were long lines in
waiting when the gates of the fair
opened, and from the minute they were
opened until far in the afternoon there
was a constant clicking of the turnstiles

who were admitted to the grounds.
Every train on the elevated road, on the
Illinois Central and on the cable lines
was crowded from the start. So, too,
were the trains oil the Wisconsin Cen
tral, the Baltimore <fe Ohio, and the
other lines leading to the terminal sta
tion at the fair. The steamboat lines
had their share. At 10:30 o'clock the
bureau of admissions estimated that
near 100,000 people had passed through
the turnstiles into the White City, and
the arrivals had then apparently only
It was well on towards 3 o'clock in
the afternoon before the societies who
participated in the big parade down
town reached Jackson park. They pro
ceeded at once to the German govern
ment building on arriving there, or
rather they went as near to that beauti
ful structure as they could get There
was so great a crowd around the place
that they could not get within hearing
distance of the speaker's stand. The
driveway along the lake shore in frout
of the building was black with people.
The immense pavilions and grand
stands erected for the occasion were
packed so that even a well-developed
sardine would have foundnt uncomfort
ably close. While the multitude was
assembling, the chime of bells in the
lofty tower of the building was ringing
out tuneful German melodies. Then
Burlow's orchestra played Weber's
"Jubal" overture. This was followed
by the singing of Haydn's
"DeutMchland liober Alles"
by the German-American World's Fair
chorus and United Singers of Chicago.
When the last strains of this beautiful
piece had died away, G. Halle, president
of the celebration committee, intro
duced Hon. Harry Reubens, who made
the address of welcome aud extended
the ereetings of the German-Americans
of Chicago to the representatives of the
German empire. "Wacht am Rheiu"
was then sung by the World's Fair
chorus, accompanied by orchestral
music. Baron yon ilollenden, German
ambassador at Washington, then re
sponded to the greetings of Mr. Keubens
in behalf of the German emperor. Next
on the programme was the address of
the day, which was delivered by Hon.
Carl Schurz, of New York.
When the applause following Mr.
Schurz's address had died away, Impe
rial Commissioner Wermuth spoke upon
the World's Columbian exposition. He
spoke at length upon tlie wonderful
energy of the American people, and
said in no country on the face of the
earth outside of the United States could
so wonderful, bo grand and so extensive
an exposition have been built In so short
a time. The imperial commissioner
welcomed the assembled guests to the
German building. He said his heart
was tilled with delight and thankful

we may emphasize In the justifiable
pride that Germany shows in the palm
of victory at the competition at this ex
position, lie concluded by saying that It
was no vain hope that Germany's par
ticipation at the fair will help to
strengthen the position that Germany
deserves in the United States.
Following Ilerr VVermuth Amal chorus
sang "Das Treue Deutsche Herz,"
after which his honor. Mayor Carter
Harrison, made an address welcoming
the Germans and German-Americans to
Chicago and to the world's fair. From
tall rtagstatls in front of the German
building the stars and stripes and the
black, white and red bars of Germany
fluttered to the gentle breeze which
came in from the lake. The expansive
front of the building was literally

and from the tall spire on the structure
of the building tiie German ensign, vast
in proportions, swung to the wind.
When the exercises of the German gov
ernment building were ended, Buffalo

of his exhibition, marched in review
before the speaker's stand while the
cowboy band played "Hail Columbia."

The exercises concluded with pole

twelve double horizontal bars, under
the direction of Prof. Hartung.
Hoosiers Dedicated Tneir Hand-
Boms State Building.
Chicago, Juuo 15..— Hoosiers by the
thousand came from their state today
to assist in the dedication of the Indi
ana state buildidg. People from sister
states and foreign countries were at
tracted to the building by the expecta
tion of seeing and hearing the only liv
ing ex president of the republic, and
they joined in giving him a rousing
American welcome. None of the state
buildings are constructed to accom
modate large crowds inside, so
the exercises were held on tho
broad piazza which surrounds the
building. The invited and uninvited
visitors wedged together, and President
Harrison, who arrived late, was forced
to push his way after President lligin
botham before reaching a seat. His ad
dress, after State Commissioner IJ. F.
liarvens, Clement Studebaker und Gov.
Matthew had spoken, was a splendid,
patriotic and inspiring effort, lie was
vigorously applauded when he said:
"I congratulate Chicago on what she
has done here. No other city has ever
done so much and 'nay never again.
When this scheme was proposed 1
thought New York was the only city
which could produce a world's fair. 1
confess my mistake. I now' believa
Chicago is the only city in the world."
The ex-president struck a sympathetic
chord when he said he had no patience

position, and Ford W. Peck, chairman
of the finance committee, have issued
the following statement regarding tho
finances of the fair: The recent state
ments published in some of the daily
papers regarding world's fair finances
are grossly misleading. The entire

May, including pay rolls, were

total expenses for May were less than

the total receipts were $72U,000, the ex
position being open but twenty days.
These expenses were much larger than
they will be in June or thereafter, owing
to the then unfinished condition of
grounds and buildings and the work of

other Diplomatic Tangle
WA.smxfiTo.v, June 15.— The new In
quest has started. Fohr days of work
have been wasted, and now the- work of
finding, so far as a coroner's jury can
find, who is responsible for the disaster
at the Ford theater building has com
menced once more. The decision of
Judge Blngbam yesterday, of course,
necessitated an entirely new inquest.
All the testimony which had so far been
given was of no more value, from a legal
standpoint.than if it had bean delivered
to tho winds, Instead of to six at
tentive jurors. Through this case,
however, the district has learned some
things, and tins morning the inquest
was started in a formal way. Col. Ains
worth's attorney was in the hall a few
minutes before the inquest began, but
he withdrew before Coroner Patterson
rapped the jury to order. The old jury
was summoned for the new inquest, and
the coroner and the jury went to Glen
wood cemetery and viewed the body of
Frederick P. Loftus, one of the victims,
whose body lies in a receiving vault

was James L. Parsons, a contractor and
builder, who testified that he had exam
ined the old theater last month with a
view to submitting a bid for making the
proposed alterations. He submitted a
bid for the contemplated work, but
failed io get the contract. In a subse
quent examination-of the work he no
ticed that no shoring had been done and
there was no evidence of any having
been done. Witness said he would
have shored the floors from tho cellar

if he had gotten the contract. When

time as absolutely safe."

of disaffected clerks and the riotous
proceedings of the provious illegal in

Thomas B. Entwistle, inspector of
buildings for the district, 6aid he was
called upon about five years ago to go
over the building and give his opinion
as to Its safety. The rssult of tho exr
amlnatiou was that he found tho floors
and walls perfectly safe. Francis Sasse,
the engineer of the old theater building,
said he had made the specifications for
the electric light plant. Cross-examined,
tho witness said he considered himself
competent as an engineer to draw the
plans, but did not consider himself
competent to say how the work should
be done. Examined by Attorney Thom

himself a competent man to superin

petency of Mr. Dant, the contractor.

for the electric lighting plant, said he

Malietoa Calls un the Tripartite
Alliance for Aid.
Washington, June 15.— Secretary
Gresham has got another diplomatic
tangle on his hands. This time it is in
the Samoan Islands. He has received
; advices that war is imminent, and that
a rebellion has broken out against the
existing government, of which King
Malietoa Is the head. Comparative
quiet prevailed on tiie islands so long
as the dethroned monarch Mataafa was
kept out of hia kingdom. It appears
now, however, that he has returned to
Samoa for the purpose of regaining fiis
throne. All his old adnereuts
and many new recruits have ral
lied under his standard ana
have begun operations against ttie
powers that be. That his following is
strong and menacing is evidenced by
the fact that the reigning kiug;Malietoa,
has appealed to the representatives of
the tripartite alliance to protect him in
accordance with the treaty concluded
between the United States, Great
Britain and Germany, and assist him in
driving the usurper. Mataafa, from his
territory. The situation has reached a
critical" stage and the president and
Secretary Gresham are in frequent con
ference as to the policy of this govern
ment in the matter. The United States
is pledged to assist In preserving

INTEREST TO LOGGERS.
Judge Start, of Winona, Grants a
Modification of Surveyor Gen
oral Million's Injunction.
The Decision Grants Privilege* to
the Boom Company Not Inter*
fering With Government.
Special to the Globe.
Winona, Minn., June 15.— A modifi
cation of Surveyor General Mullen's in
junction giving him authority to scale
logs at tho West Newton boom has been
granted by Judge Start, of the
district court. The modification
granted states that the surveyor's sealers
must keep seventy feet away from the
company's sealers in doing their work,
but the boom company must retain their
log brails within a mile' of the works
until the surveyor's sealers are through.
The judge further decides that all logs
removed from the boom by the company
before being scaled by the surveyor iren
eral; shall be deemed to have been
scaled at the place where the law re
quires, and the plaintiff shall be entitled
to the fees in such case if it shall finally
be decided that the law requires the
plaintiff to scale the logs running out of
the boom or into the same.
In his memoranda, attached to the de
cision, Judge Start says:
The motion is for a modification, not
a dissolution of the injunction. There
fore it is unnecessary to discuss the
question whether it is the official duty
of the plaintiff to scale the logs passing
through the defendant's boom. For the
purpose of this motion only, it is as
sumed that it is his official duty to scale,
-such logs. Therefore he must have a
reasonable opportunity to discharge
this duty.although it may result in in -
convenience and delay to the defend
ants, for all inspection laws are burden
some to the citizens to a greater or less
degree. But the state, in the exercise
of its police power, should interfere
with the person or property of a citizen
only so far as the public health,
public safety and the protection
of the public and private rights
and interest demand. Both plaintiff
and defendant complain in this case
that the opposite party has unnec
essarily interfered and obstructed Lint
or them in the work of scaling the logs
in defendant's boom. No reason why
the parties should not accept the situa
tion and agree upon some practical
method whereby the rights opposed can
be conserved, is apparent to the court,
but in response :to the requestor the
court, counsel failed to point out any
practical way by which the plaintiff
could scale the logs different from what
he is now doing. In view of the magni
tude and importance, public and pri
vate, of the defendant's rafting 'works,
the court is anxious to make the work
of scaling the logs by the 'plaintiff just
as little of an interference with the de
fendant's business as practicable, and
still permit the plaintiff to make an offi
cial scale of such logs.

there was no answer, and that

CAUSED BY DIHTKUBT.
Congressman Breckenridjje Dl»
--arses on the Financial Situ
VVkst Si PEBIOB, Wis. June 15.—
Congressman C. li. Breckenrldge, of
Arkansas, has some very decided views
on the silver question.
"What do you think of the silver
question?" was asked.
"That is a pretty broad question. in
In the first place, i think the Sherman
law has it ill about the worst condition
in which the silver or money question
can be placed, because it makes every- '
thing uncertain. We are having harder
times than seem to exist even in India
or Mexico; and, considering' our re
sources, distrust about money matters
is apparently the chief cause of this :
' "How about the export of gold?"
"The export of gold is in response to a
national demand. The mere amount Of
the export is not enough to account for '
the sudden stringency In nivnoy mat
ters. Thu uoint is that so small an ox
port of money should develop tin: weak*
ness of our system. That is to my miml
the most significant feature about thu
export of gold. A system is Inherently
bad that requires a constant Influx ut
gold to sustain confidence in the
character of the circulating me
dium. Movements of money should
involve the question of quan
tity, but not of quality.
The outflow of gold seems to be sub
stantially checked. With our increas
ing exports and with the future exports
of thu new crops of wheat, cotton and
other products, combined witli still
other causes, the crisis ought to be con
sidered x as really over. The only re
maining trouble is our monetary ays
tern. This congress will doubtlessly
remedy before a condition similar to tho
present one can possibly again overtake
us. Just what tin- details may be, ot
course, 1 could not venture to predict,
or even to form a definite opinion at
this time." i
