BISHOP ARNETT, OF OHIO.
Noted Colored Orator and Divine in
the Mill City.
Bishop B. W. Arnett, of Ohio, one of the
most prominent men in the African M. E.
Church of America, is in Minneapolis, and
yesterday preached three sermons to Minne
v apolis congregations. In addition to being
» an enthusiastic church worker, Mr. Arnett
is alio very much interested in politics, and
at one time was a member of the legislature
In the state of Ohio. He has always worked
politically in the interests of the colored man,
and to him is credited the repeal of the ob
noxious black laws that existed In Ohio
prior to 18S6. His figure was a prominent
one indeed in the legislature of that state,
and his ringing speeches in behalf of his
fellow colored man endeared hihi not only
to those directly interoTted and benefked by
the results of his efforts, but also to the fair
minded white men of his state.
Bishop Arnett preached in St Peter's M. E.
church, in the old court house, yesterday
morning, and in the afternoon and evening
occupied the pulpit of St. James' H. E.
church. Large congregations were present
at each service.
FALSE ALARMS TOO FREQUENT.
Police Think a Crank Is at Work at
The trouble being given the flre department
by an unknown person sending in false alarms
is of unusual occurrence. Seldom has that
been met to any extent before, and then only
an occasional open box. The alarms of late
have been coming from locked boxes, and
the mystery is a~> to the identity of the of
fender. A "record of box keys is kept at fire
department headquarters, and the name of
the person holding one carefully marked
down. Two broken keys were found in box
locks. They were of an inferior grade, cheap
ly made. Within the outer lock of the box
is a small lock known as, the release, and
the person using a key to send in an alarm
cannot extract tho key until released by the
chief or his substitute. The offender wrenched
the release lock from Box 039 and carried it
away, evidently to make a key to fit it. The
officials are mystified as to causes prompting
the perron to send in alarms. Evidently the
latter is insane or possessed of a mania for
mischief surpassing that ordinarily met with.
A close watch is being kept by the officials,
and if cnught the offender will be severely

Bogrus Advertiser Falls Into the
Clutches of the Authorities.
Last June an advertisement ws.s placed In
a Minneapolis paper in which a ''Mrs. M. V.
Vernor," of aWterloo, 10., etalring to be a
widow, wished to secure the services of a
young woman as a traveling companion. She
further purported to be fifty years old and
an invalid. The wages to be paid were ?-0
a month, a ticket to California, and further
expenses would be paid. The sum of $2.50
war? demanded from each person answering
the advertisement, as a guaranty of good
faith. Two young women from Minneapolis
answered the letter, and one wm accepted.
It has since been proven that the name Mrs.
M. V. Vernon was a fictitious one, and that
the advertiser was one Dr. W. V. Hand.
This was discovered through the efforts of
the federal authorities. Through this influ
ence he has recently been prosecuted in Chi
cago and sentenced to imprisonment of one
year and to pay a fine of ?100.
St. Paul Day a Success.
"St. Paul day" at the Ole Bull fair yes
terday was a pecuniary, social and artistic
success. It was a 20-cent admission day, and
the admissions were numerous. It had at least
one St. Paul man on the programme and he
made a hit. Every successful feature of the
week was repeated, and there were a number
of new ones, including the announcement by
J. W. Arctander, to the effect that a hun
dred new prizes would be added to the l!s-t
in the grand drawing, for the reason that
already 6,000 tickets had been accounted for
as sold, and the money turned in; 3,000 more
tickets were sold, and the accounting would
be made tomorrow, and this left only ],COO
tickets for those who had not had an oppor
tunity to get almost anything from an up
right piano to a lady's dress hat.
Admitted Stealing Nine.
Inspectors Morrissey and Courtney last even
ing arrested John Sheller, who was taken in
custody charged with the larceny of a bi
cycle belonging to George C. Belden, from
the Guaranty Loan building Saturday. The
officers placed the prisoner in the sweat-box
and he finally confessed the larceny of nine
wheels within the past few weeks. They
were disposed of at secoifd-hand stores for
paltry figures. Sheller is twenty-four years
of age and an old offender.
Soap for the Politicianii.
One of the latest campaign novelties is now
being sold in drug stores. It is nothing less
than a small doll, made of soap. There are
both McKinley and Bryan dolls. The for
mer has a tag with the following inscription:
"I am for McKinley and sound money, ain't
you? No 16 to 1 for me." The Bryan doll
is adorned with this significant sentence: "I
am for Bryan and silver; 16 to 1 for me.
Ain't you?" The trade in these soap dolls is
reported to have been quite brisk, and the
demand still continues. Silver and gold men
purchase them as a "josh." and send to their
friends who belong to the opposite parties.

The Buttle the Doable Cause.
During the early hours of yesterday morn-
Ing the saloon of John Peterson, 1822 River-
Bide avenue, was the scene of a typical bar
room row. A couple of men had come in
during the evening and gotten into an al
tercation with the bartender. They had, how
ever, departed without causing any trouble.
A little after 12 o'clock they entered again,
and without any warning hurled a bottle to
wards the bar. It struck Erick Rask, driver
of a beeer wagon. His noso was broken
and an ugly wound inflicted. He was re
moved to the South side police station, where
Dr. William A. Gerrlsh worked over the
nasal appendage for over an hour, and ex
tracted a piece of broken bone before the
wound could be sewed up.

Sir Edward Clarke Tries to Justify
His Venezuela Remarks,
LONDON, r Oct. 19. — Sir Edward
Clarke writes to the Times this morn
ing regarding the criticisms of his
speech contesting the justice of the
British claims in the Venezuela case.
Sir Edward says that he did not sug
gest that the Venezuelan question was
being used by either party in the
United States as a factor in the presi
dential election. "The object of my
Bpeech," he says, "was to point to the
danger of delaying a settlement until
after the election. I quote a passage
from the Venezuelan case, alleging a
falsification of the maps, but expressing
my dibelief in the truth of the accusa
tions, for the purpose of showing the
serious elements of the danger if the
question comes to be a matter of hot
controversy between the United States
The Times says editorially of the
above: "Sir Edward Clarke's letter is
an inadequate answer. He showed a
curious ignorance of the elements of
the controversy when he was attempt
ing to talk of it several months ago.
It is lamentable that a man who has
been a law officer and an officer of the
crown should lay himself open to re
proof in such a manner."

FRENCH RESIDENTS OF MINNE
APOLIS TAKE A NOTABLE
DECLARE FOR SOUND MONEY.
NOT A VOICE RAISED AGAINST THE
INDORSEMENT OF THE
THE LAFAYETTE-PAPINEAU CLUB.
Congressman Fletcher Speaks a
Good Word for Himself and
The members of the Lafayette-Papi
neau club, composed of representative
French citizens, have decided by a
resolution, which was unanimously
passed, that they will support the en
tire Republican ticket from top to bot
tom. The meeting- was held yesterday
afternoon at Norden hall, 108 Central
avenue, and two features of the gather
ing were the fine speeches delivered
and the intense enthusiasm displayed.
Between two of the speeches the fol
lowing resolution was read by the sec
"We, the Lafayette-Papineau. club, in meet
ing assembled, fully indorse and agree to sup
port the entire Republican ticket, national,
state and county."
The words were scarcely out of the
mouth of the secretary when it was
moved and seconded that the resolu
tion be adopted. This was unanimous
ly agreed to with a sheut.
Edward Rainville, president of the
club, occupied the chair. The speeches
j were interspersed with several violin
I selections, rendered by Prof. Miller.
The meeting began at 3 o'clock, and
with such eagerness were the speakers
| heard that the last address was not
I concluded until almost 6 o'clock, and
even then those present would have
been glad to have listened to more
sound money talk.
The first speaker was Congressman
Loren Fletcher, who was introduced
by the chair as the next congressman.
He was received with manifestations
of delight, and was frequently inter
rupted with bursts of applause. In
part, the Fifth district's able repre
sentative said: "I am pleased at being
here because the French have always
been my friends. lam pleased to
know that so many of you Intend to
vote for sound money and good govern
ment, for you are all good citizens. We
| all know that free trade has not proved
good policy for this country. TVe need
protection for our industries and our
people. We had good times under Re
publican rule and a protective tariff.
We are tired of free trade, but the
Popocrats now want us to adopt free
silver. In my honest opinion this
would bring a panic and disaster to
the United States. But I don't believe
the people will declare for free silver.
The Republican party will receive an
overwhelming majority, which will put
the silver craze to sleep. (Applause.)
"It speaks well for those Democrats
who have left their party to take up
their stand for sound money. As in
18S1, party lines must be overlooked
and we must fight for the common
cause. The thinking, honest Democrats
are rallying to the support of the Re
! publican ticket. Put the Republicans
; in power and restore the good times of
'92. I know you will all be at the polls
this year and support the entire
Al J. Smith, candidate for justice of
th-? peace, made a few remarks on the
issues of the campaign. He discussed
the money question, and said this cam
paign appealed to the patriotism of the
people. He said that every man voting
for Bryan took that gentleman's word
for free coinage as against the actual
experiences of business, which proved
that it was a failure elsewhere and
would be the same here.
In his address, Marshall B. Lloyd,
candidate for alderman in the Ninth
ward, said he would make no ante
election promises, except that if elect
ed, he would attend to the city's af
fairs as if it were his private business
and that he would try to secure an
equal division of city funds for his
Sheriff John E. Holmberg, in his plain
manner, told the audience how the of
fice of sheriff suited him and he frankly
admitted that he would be pleased to
The next speaker was John Goodnow,
who, in begining his address, said that
by some Minneapolis was regarded as
"the hotbed of Populism." He said
that for this very reason the people of
St. Paul were attempting to roll up as
large a sound money majority as pos
sible so as to secure favor with Eastern
business men. He impressed upon his
audience the necessity of doing as
much for the Republican ticket and
scund money as St. Paul, so as not to
let the latter city secure an advantage
over fair Minneapolis.
Charles Franc, Republican candidate
for alderman in the First ward, spoke
in both French and English. He re
futed some statements circulated about
the way he was conducting his cam
paign, and declared that he had no
clique or corporation fighting his battle.
He asked for the assistance of all in
helping the First ward to go Repub
lican this year.
F. R. Le Roux made a strong address
in French in favor of sound money. The
last speaker was George Moray, who
elaborated in a few words upon what
the others had said. He said Mr. Bryan
stated that the price of silver and
wheat went hand in hand. This did
not seem to be so, for wheat has re
cently advanced 15 cents, while the
price of silver had declined five cents.
Mr. Moray related several amusing

EDITOR RUBLEE DEAD.
Most Prominent Newspaper Man in
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Oct. 18.— Horace
Rublee, editor of the Milwaukee Senti
nel, died tonight. He had been suffer
ing for two years from a tumorous dis
ease developed from tuberculosis, and
during the past month had rapidly
wasted in strength. Mr. Rublee was
born in Berkshire, Vt., in 1829, and
came to Wisconsin in his eleventh
year. He resided in this state con
tinuously, with the exception of a year
as editor of the Boston Advertiser in
1878 and eight years as minister to
Switzerland during Grant's administra

chairman of the Republican state com
mittee, was editor of the Wisconsin
State Journal at Madison for sixteen
years and in 1880 came to Milwaukee,
and for a like period has been in con
trol of the Sentinel. Mr. Rublee was
easily the most distinguished newspa

scholarly attainments, political leader
ship and style of expression. In 1877,
as chairman of the state committee, he
repudiated a weak financial platform

That a reaction does result from the vig

it would seem to rest almost entirely with

Raid on Carney, Okla., AVas In True
Jesse James Style.
GTJTHRIE, Okla., Oct. 18.— Further
particulars were received here today
of the raid of the little town of Car
ney, about twenty miles east of here,
j last night. About 9 o'clock at night
; six masked and heavily armed out
laws, supposed to have been headed
by the notorious "Dynamite Dick," one
of the associates of the Daltons, and
Bill Doolan, rode into the place and
literally "held up" the town.
Carney is a town of about 300 people.
The robbers entered the village from
the north with a great show of fire
arms. Two of the outlaws entered the
! general store of B. Fouts & Co.. and
compelled Fouts and his son to open
the safe. After securing about $800
from them they bound both the father
and son, threw them upon horses and
' carried them about two miles out of
I town, where they tied them to a tree.
; In the meantime the rest of the gang
had entered the postofflce, but failing
to secure anything of value they raided
the hotel, compelling the proprietor
and several traveling men who were
stopping there to turn over their I
money, watches and jewelry. Several
smaller stores were also raided. Before
entering Carney, the outlaws had tak
en the precaution to cut the telephone
wires leading to Chandler.so that there
might be no chance of a failure. Dur
ing the raid the bandits kept up a
fusillade of bullets in -all directions,
terrorizing the inhabitants so that
very little effort was made to resist
the raiders. It was some time after the
bandits had left before order could be
restored, and an organized pursuit be
gun. Finally, after considerable de
lay, about 100 armed men began the
chase. The pursuers were divided into
three bands, and went in different di
rections. At dark tonight the bandits
had not been overtaken. Early this j
morning a band of four men, believed
to have been members of the gang that
raided Carney, appeared at Mulhall,
held up a livery stable keeper and
compelled him to supply them with a
relay of fresh horses. News was also
received today at the United States
marshal's office that two men, sup
posed to have been members of the
gang, had stopped at a farm house
about fifteen miles northeast of here
and demanded food. Several United
States marshals, headed by Deputy
Colcord, are in pursuit.

ACCIDENT IS CLAIMED.
Widow of John A. Cockerill May B«
NEW YORK, Oct. 18.— Walter Louis
Lenau, who married the widow of Col.
John A. Cockeriil, shot himself today
at his home at Englewood, N. J. Ac
cording to Mrs. Lenau, the shooting
was unintentional. Mr. Lenau has
made no statement concerning the
matter. The surgeons in attendance
hold out little encouragement for his
recovery. Persons passing by were
startled today by the appearance of
Mrs. Lenau on the steps of her house.
She was hysterical, and was running
up and down the street appealing to
every one she saw, "Get a doctor
quickly, my husband has shot himself
and is dying."
Drs. Currie, Baldwin and Proctor
soon arrived, and found Mr. Lenau on
a bed, wheTe he had been put by his
wife and a servant. A bullet from a
38-calibre revolver had entered the
stomach. The surgeons unsuccessfully
probed for the ball. Mr. Lenau rallied
a little an hour after th<* shooting and
expressed a desire to live, but said
nothing as to how he shot himself.
To the friends who called to express
sympathy, Mrs. Lenau said:
"It was all an accident. A deliberate
attempt upon his own life could not
have been further from my husband's
thoughts. Walter ate a hearty dinner
ond then spoke of cleaning his revol
ver. He took it from a burea.i drawer,
examining it, and said he was sur
prised it was so rusty. Then he began
to take it apart. I noticed the muzzle
was pointed toward his body. I said:
'Walter, I would not let the revolver
point that way.' The words had
barely passed my lips when there was
a report and my husband threw up his
hands and fell to the floor."
Mr. Lenau Is twenty -seven years, old.
His wife is forty. He is a son of Ru
dolph Lenau, former president of the
Germania Bank of Brooklyn, and is
connected with the silk importing house
of Victor & Achelis, of this city. His
marriage with Mrs. Cockerill on June

Cockerill at Cairo, Egypt, was unex

WASHINGTON, Oct. 18.— Secretary
Laniont will tomorrow transmit to the
secretary of the treasury his estimates
of appropriations required by the war
department for the next fiscal year.
The aggregate is $52,875,638. The esti
mate for the running expenses of the
war office in Washington is $1,464,236,
showing, the secretary says, a reduc
tion in the annual,.expenses for salaries
and contingencies in that office of $621,
--942 from the estimates of four years
ago. The other estimates, in detail, are
Pay of the army, as fixed by law,
$13,522,880; subsistence of the army,
$1,659,837; quartermaster's supplies,
$2,200,000; incidental expenses of the
army, $600,000; barracks and -quarters,
Including hospital construction, $835,
--000; shooting ranges, $25,000; cavalry
and artillery horses, $130,000; army
transportation, $2,500,000; clothing,
$1,100,000; medical supplies, $140,200; ord

I diers' homes, $3,443,214; artificial limbs
for soldiers of the late war, $191,000;

$402,000; rivers and harbors, $5,349,000
j to meet payments !on existing con
tracts, the department at this time
being unable to say ;What sum will be
required- by future contracts, for which
authority exists. The estimate for for
tifications and sea coast defenses has
been increased to $15,824,298, an amount,
Secretary Lamoi\t saiys, which will be
required to continue this work at its
present rate of progress, which has
been appreciably: advanced under the
large appropriation which became
available on the Ist .^of July last. In
connection with his estimate, the sec
retary has made public a statement
of the condition of this work, the ad
vance that has.beejp made, and the
results that can be effected by the in
creased appropriation which he asks.
On the Ist of July, 1893, but one mod
ern gun had been placed in position. On
the Ist of July, 1897, the department
will have completed defenses, with
armament, as follows: Thirteen 12
--inch, thirty-seven 10-inch, eight 8-inch
and four rapid-fire guns, and eighty 12
The remainder of Secretary La
mont's letter transmitting the esti
mates is of a historical nature, review
ing . the. progress made in sea coast
otfense. He says that for the fifteen
years preceding 1890 no appropriations
had been made for engineering work
on our permanent coast- defense', ex
cept the small and steadily decreasing
sum annually allowed for the "pro
tection, preservation and repair" of
existing works, but small amounts had
teen granted for the construction of
mining casemates and purchase of ma
terial for submarine mining defenses,
while In 1888 and 1889 a total of about
?2,000,000 had appropriated for modern
guns, mortars and carriages. In 1890
was made the first appropriation,
$1,221,000 for modern gun and mortar
latteries, followed by one of'?7oO,000 in
1f.91 and by another of $500,000 in 1892.
This money was allotted by the de
partment for construction work at
\ arious ports, including a total of four
twelve-inch, twenty ten-inch, five
fight-inch and two rapid-fire gun em
placements, and -sixty-four twelve
irch mortar emplacements. None of
them, however, could be made ready
to receive its armament until after the
first small appropriations made in 1893
and the two succeeding years. Prac
tically, therefore; it lias, the secretary
says, devolved upon the war depart
ment since 1893 to niake provision for
the completion of nearly al 1 of the
emplacements. "It appears," the sec
retary says, "that seventeen out of
twenty-one twelve-inch emplacements,
fifty-five out of sixty-six ten-inch em
placements, twenty out of twenty-five
e'ght-inch emplacerntnts, fourteen out
of sixteen rapid. fire gun emplacements
and ninety-two out sof 156 twelve-inch
mortar emplacements have been en
tirely provided for during the last four
years, and that during the same time a
large part of those pueviously provided
for have been prepared to receive their
For this favorable^showing much Is
due to the liberality of congress at
Its recent session. The number oC
emplacements provided by the act
of June 6, 1896, is just fifty in excess of
the total provided by all preceding
The progress in armament has been
equally satisfactory. Figures are giv
en to show that prior to the act of
June 6,^1898, there had been completed
sixty-one eight-inch, fifty-six ten-inch
and twenty twelve-inch guns, and
eighty twelve-inch mortars completed,
■while there were twenty-seven eight
ir.ch, thirty-five ten-inch anil twenty
nine twelve-inch guns in process of
The appropriation of June 6, 1896,
while leaving the above completed to
tals unchanged, raised the total in
process of construction to twenty-sev
en eight-inch, fifty-six ten-inch, fifty
twenty-inch ten Six-pounder rapid
fire guns, and sixty-six twelve-inch
By the tise a new appropriation
can become available, says the letter,
all the details of the type of carriage
will have been fully determined. With
sufficient money, therefore, the limit
to future rapidity of progress in coast
defense is the fcomfirined annual ca
pacity of public andJprivate plants to
supply ordnance material. Upon thi3
fact are based '■ the esti
mates for the ftisuftng year. These
estimates will provide the following:
Guns— One 16-inctr pn (finishing and as
sembling, forgings already provided), twen
ty-one sets 12-inch gun forgings, twenty-one
sets 10-inch gun forcings, 144 all steel 12

Altata, Mex., Wiped Out by Storm
and Tidal Wave.
SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 18.— On the
last trip of the Pacific coast steamship
Orizaba up the gulf of California the
officers and crew of the vessel were
surprised to find one of the ports they
make regularly wiped off the earth.
When the ship reached the mouth of
tlit! river Culiaca, in the state of Sina
loa, the little mining town of Altata,
which had stood there on the Orizaba's
last trip, was gone. Not a building was
left standing. This was one of the re
sults of the terrible storm which played
navoc on the mainland coast of the
gulf Sept. 17 and 18. The storm was
a sort of composite affair, taking
the nature of a tidal wave and cloud
+^rst^., Torrent >3 rushed down from
*? e *^ n , a back of Al *ata and met
the tidal wave carried in from the sea
and the town was obliterated For
*u na *<f ly the loss of life was slight and
the Altatans are now camping in tents
or rudely constructed huts a little back
of where the town stood.
So far as Altata is concerned, it is no'
new thing for it to find itself off the
map This is the third time that town
has been swallowed by the sea Twice
the place has been rebuilt, each time
at a point further up the Cullacan
river. This time the residents will
build well in from the coast, it is said

Rumor That Uncle Sam Will Inter
fere in Cuba Arouaes Them.
MADRID, Oct. 18.— Commenting- upon
the statement contained in a dispatch
from Washington that President Cleve
land intends to intervene in Cuba in a
manner tantamount to the recognition
of the independence of the insurgents
| the Imparcial declares that Spain ought
A to demand a full explanation of the
Washington government. "She cannot
brook such a threat over her head,"
| continues the Imparclal, "even for a
I sl , n Sl e day - B y what right do the Unit
|ed States define the time for Spain
I to settle a question of her internal ad-
I ministration? It must be affirmed be
fore the whole world that the American
government cannot impose any sort of
terms upon us."
After denouncing- the United States'
factional neutrality," the Imparcial
concludes as follows: "The conduct of
the United States will arouse general
indignation. If Spain should remain
alcne in a conflict with the United
States, Spaniards, by their own efforts
will know how to mark the difference
between the noble defenders of their
own property and the vile traffickers at

WHEAT'S BIG RISE
NO SUCH ADVANCE! HAS BEEN
KNOWN IN THE MARKET
FOREIGNERS BACK OF IT.
MARKET FORCED UPWARD BY
THE SHEER POWER OP DE
MAND AND SUPP7-Y
--SPECULATORS HAVE BEEIN WARY.
To Tliat Cause May Be Attributed
Their Failure tv Profit by the
CHICAGO, Oct. 18.— The Times-Her
ald tomorrow in its review of the wheat
trade will say:
There has been no such wheat mar
ket as the present since 1891, when the
Russian crop failure advanced prices
about 30 cents per bushel, and resulted
in such an enormous export movement
of American grain.
That rise five years ago was started
up by the foreigners, and was in their
control for some months. Yet there
was a short interest at Chicago in that
year which hastened the rally along
and helped to make its extreme prices.
The foreigners have not only been be
hind this wheat advance this fall, but
it has been more completely their affair
than five years ago.
There has been a surprising absence
of short interest all through the past
sixty days. The advance, for that rea
son, has been slower and more regular
than if Pardridge and Rosenkranz and
the old-time short selling contingent
had been alive and interested, and been
compelled at critical times to take back
their lines. This absence of short In
terest has been one of the circum
stances which has kept the ordinary
professional hesitating about the ad
vance and skeptical about its perma
nency, he could remember so many ral
lies on the mere running in of the short
seller and so few where a short in
terest had been altogether lacking, and
it is not remarkable under the cir-
cumstances he has not profited by
the 20-cent rise already made. There
have been a few operators who have
had the luck to Intuitively feel the
situation, to believe the queer claims
of crop calamity from Argentine, Au
stralia, India and Russia, and to even
believe the claims in regard to the
shortage at home. But it has been
largely a matter of luck with these
few fortunate ones. Claims just as
vehemeftt have been made so before,
and then upset by the facts, it really
looked like wisdom to be skeptical this
year. It has not proved so. The trad
er who has "coppered" the news has
been left. The one who has sold on
the rallies has lost money. The man
who has kept looking for a short in
terest, and who has been bearish be
cause it has not existed, has now noth
ing but regrets. The whole science of
the pit this fall has been set at
naught. Prices have been lifted by the
sheer force of demand. More than
half of the present gain was made be
fore there seemed to be any increase
in the speculation. The farmer or the
grain trader who has had actual grain
has profited by the rise, of course, but
the wild "Western speculator who has
had most to do with the great markets
at Chicago has been as skeptical as
the shrewd scalper of the pit, and has
now as much to regret.
TO KAISER WILLIAM I.
Emperor William Aids in Unveiling;
BERLIN, Oct. 18.— Emperor William
a.nd Empress Augusta received an en
thusiastic greeting at Port Westphalia
today, where he went to attend the
unveiling of the monument erected in

heights, by the music of 700 trumpeters |
and by a choir of 600 voices, which sang
an ode to the late emperor, whose mem
ory was being commemorated.

eulogy of his grandfather and of the
patriotism of Westphalia, and expressed
himself as feeling sure that the West
phalians would Joyfully respond to a
