LONDON, March 31 Berlin advices state
that tbe murder of. the Bulgarian minis
ter of finance is one of the chief causes of
the sadden flurry among the officials of
the war office, ami that it is looked upou
as a serious indication of the gravest de
signs on the part of Russia, Dispatches
have been busily passing between the for
eign offices of Berlin and Vienna, and also
Bucharest, and it is now stated that the
celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary
of the accession of King Charles of Rou
mania, at Bucharest next month, will be
made the occasion of an informal confer
ence between the powers of the triple alli
ance. The kaisers both of Germany and
Austria and the . king of Italy have been
invited as guests to the celebration, which
i designed to be on a most magnificent
acale. Francis Joseph has promised to be
present, but the German kaiser will prob
ably be represented by one of his leading
and confidential officers, although he may
conclude to go in person.
Roumania Pretty Well Fixed.
At any rate the sovereigns of the triple
alliance will spare no effort to prove their
friendship for the Roumanians, and hold
that state to their side iu tbe event of
war. Roumania is in excellent coudition
for defense, having nearly completed a
aeries of formidable fortifications along
the Russia frontier, and having an army
that is far from contemptible. M. Khi
trovo, the Russian minister at Bucharest,
ia suspected of having a share in the plot
to assassinate Stambuloff, as he was
proven to have had in the Panitza con
spiracy, and should evidence be obtained
of bis complicity in the late tragedy his
recall will be demanded by Roumania.
Bulgaria has requested the Servian au
thorities to search for some of the mur
derers who are supposed to have taken
refuge in that kingdom.
Preparing for a Russian Move.
The murderer of Baltcheff has tended
to bring together again more closely
Prince Ferdinand and M. Stambuloff, the
former having become somewhat jealous
of the absolutism exercised by the pre
mier, although there has never Wen the
slightest doubt of the premier's fidelity.
The Bulgarian reserves have been notified
to be ready for service on call, and the
principality is alive with warlike prepa
rations, as there is a strong apprehension
that a hostile movement on the part of
Russia may be expected.
Russia Was Ready and Waiting.
A dispatch from Vienna says that 35-3
Bulgarian refugees, armed with Russian
Berdeau rifles, were waiting in towns on
the Servian frontier to march on Sofia
in the event of the success of the plot to
murder Stambuloff. The Russian press
concurs in declaring that Baltcheff's as
sassination shows the necessity for inter
vention by the powers iu Bulgaria. The
Novoe Vremya declares that the time is
near when the duties involved in the Ber
lin treaty will have to be fulfilled.
A BOYISH WOULD-BE ASSASSIN.
The Argentine Minister of the Interior
Shot by a Youth of 13 Years.
Buenos Ayp.es, March 31. The greatest
excitement prevails here over a dastardly
attempt Saturday to murder the minister
of the interior, Gen. Julioa Roca. and the
city is in a state of siege. Gen. Roca had
been to a meeting of the cabinet, and at
about 5:3) p. m., accompanied by his
friend. Gregorio Soler. he entered his car
riage and was driven down Mayo street.
Just after passing Cangallo street Mr!
Soler suddenly remarked to the general:
"I believe I heard the report of a revolver."
Tbe general felt a twinge in his side and
exclaimed: "I am wounded."
Caught With His Smoking Revolver.
The carriage was stopped and in a min
ute policemen were swarming around it.
Tomas Sambricio, an Argentine by birth
but an Italian by descent, was arrested
with'the smoking revolver in his hand.
Tomas is only 13 years old. He declared
that he could not get work, and believing
that Gen. Roca had been the cause of the
ruin othis country he had decided to kill
him. ttbe police have arrested about
twenty-live persons who are suspected of
being attettors or accomplices of young
Sambricio, among them being his parents
I nder the Rule of the Military.
As a consequence of this attempted mur
der the president and his ministers have
issued a decree declaring the capital in a
state of seige. This is the second attempt
that has been made on the life of Gen.
Koca. The public park is closed. No car
riages or horsemen are allowed to enter, and
armed platoons of cavalry and squads of
infantry are posted at every street corner.
All sorts of rumors are flying about and
the government is on the qui vive for
trouble. Troops are held at all the
armories ready for an emergency, and the
troops in near-by towns are under march
ing orders. Trouble is brewing and an
other upheaval is likely to occur soon.
BRITISH REVERSE IN INDIA.
A Forse of Goorkhas Terribly I'sed by
LosDON", March 31. A dispatch received
from Manipur, Province of Assam, tells of
the disastrous defeat of a force of native
troops garrisoned at that place. It ap
pears that the chief commissioner of As
sani, Mr. James V. Quiutou, has been in
vestigating serious troubles among the
native chiefs in that country. Having in
contemplation the arrest of a prominent
chief who had been active in effecting the
deposition of the reigning rajah, Mr.
Quinton established a strong camp which
he manned with Goorkhas, native light
infantry in the British East Indian ser
vice. This action was promptly accented
as a challenge by the hostile tribes.
Two lays of Fierce Fighting.
The camp was speedily and savagely at
tacked. Two days of fierce lighting fol
lowed.The Goorkhas fought with that valor
and determination which always charac
terized them since they were incorporated
into the British East Indian army, but
tbe odds against them were very heavy.
They are reported to have left 47(fpf their
' 1 ; : - v ' I
- : . A . f
rumber dead ou the Cell. "The ciilef
commissioner and seven officers who ac
companied him to Manipur are also re
ported to t: missing.
Mo-t Troops Forwarded.
Mr. Quinton invited the chiefs to a
"durbar," but they, pretending to obey,
mustered a force and attacked. They
were held in check until the ammunition
cf the ghoorkhas gave out, wheu Quinton
gave the order "Sauve qui peut." Imme
diately upon receiving the news of dis
asterlthe viceroy, who at present is at
Simla, summoned a council. Two native
regiments stationed at Assam have
already beeu dispatched to Manipur. The
Thir.l Bengal native .infantry has also
Started for the scene.
Irish M. P's. Have m "Scrap."
DlBLl.v, March 31. -Mike Davitt re
turned by a circuitous route Sunday night
to Easkey. whence he and his frieuds
had been driven Sunday. Thomas J. Cou
don, M. P. for Tipperary, immediately
called a Parnellits meeting and dared
Davitt to show himself. An altercation
and scuffle followed in the road between
Roache, M.. P., anti-Parnell, who had
come back with Davitt, and Conway,
Parnellite M. P. The police separated
them. Davitt remained at Easkey until
yesterday afternoon. Yesterday the Mc
Cartbyites convassed and Parnell ad
dressed meetings at Tireagh. The sur
geons at Sligo are kept busy dressing
broken heads. The mayor has refused the
use of the town hall to either party.
BOUND TO GET RID OF THE "MOKE."
An "Easy" Way Out or a Brooklyn Color
New York, March 31. Brooklyn's col
ored policeman, Wiley C. Overton, with'
whom tbe white patrolmen of the first pre
ciuct have refused to sleep, got into a
scrap? Sunday that may result in his dis
missal from the force. This would be an
easy and unexpected way out of the com
plication resulting from Overton's appoint
ment. A Heorew clerk in a store on Myr
tle avenue was stabbed with a penknife
on Saturday night by a young mulatto,
who escaped before the polics arrived ou
the scene. Overton was detailed to hunt
for the mulatto, aud in the course of his
search he ran across the open saloon of
Democratic General Committeeman
Vaugnan, whicn appeared to him to be a
violation of the excise law. Entering the
saloon, Overton was astonished to observe
a fellow officer. Patrolman Mannix. stand
ing at the bar in full uniforu, drinking
beer and surrounded by a crowd.
Taxed with Neglect of Duty.
Overton quickly withdrew and kept his
own counsel. The fact of the presence of
Overton and Mannix in the saloon was
reported to Cape Campbell, and he ques
tioned, Overton. The latter acknowledge!
that he had been in the saloon, but ex
cused himself by saying that he thought,
it was Mannix's place to arrest the bar
tender, he being an older aud more ex
perienced officer. Capt. Camplell told
Overtoil that it was his duty to arrest the
bartender. The captain will prefer
charges against Overton and Mannix.

COLLECTING SOME OLD DEBTS.
Cncle Sam Embraces an Opportunity to
Get Even with a Few Mates.
Washington City, March 31. It is ona
thing to have congress appropriate
money and another thing to get it out of
the treasury. Indiana is having an illus
tration of this and Maryland will also re
ceive a set-back when her application
for her share of the direct tax is taken up
for payment. Secretary Foster yesterday
directed the assistant treasurer at Chi
cago to pay the state of Iudiana FI6:,I44,
less about foO.000, which amount the
books of tbe treasury department show
that Indiana is indebted to the govern
ment as an excess of payment of war
claims. In the case of Maryland it is
found that she owes the government
fS,150 on account of the Indian trust fund.
The records of the department are being
hunted up and it may be found that other
states ara also indebted to the govern
ment. Tbey Were Mobbed in feixly-One.

ments have been completed hereto give

iidn't. All Sunday night the strikers by
thousands had possession of the More
wood, Standard, Alice, Bridgeport, Jim
town, Le.th, and Leiaenring plants, and
kept possession of them all yesterday.
During tie-night the rioters broke up the
ovens, tore Iown fencss, and destroyed
3ther property at their own sweet will,
while a s ore or so of deputy sheriffs had
to look on and submit. A bomb was ex
ploded at Leisenring plant, but did no par
ticular damage. At these plants there
are a large number of men ready to go to
work so soon as order is established.
Doings of Drunken Women.
The law lessness at the Leith coke plant
had some peculiar features. A baud of
infuriated Hungarian women attacked
the draws rs at the ovens and drove them
away wit j clubs and stones. The women
were iiifhtmed with liquor and rushed on
the men with yells and curses. Yard Boss
O'Connell was injured. Pit Boss Hooper
received a terrific blow on the head with
au iron bur in the hands of one of the wo
men, who followed it up with several
more unt: I she was overpowered aud her
arms wtre pinioned. The men, seeing
that resis ranee was useles. stopped their
work and fled, leaving their tools behind
them. T-vo thousand strikers assembled
at the fair grounds yesterday afternoon
and were addressed by President Rae and
Vice-President Renua and others.
Must Exhaust His Powers First.
The sheriff of Westmoreland county
telegraph.nl to Governor Pattison yester
day about the riotous miners and asked
the consent of the governor to use the
arms of two of the compauies of the na
tional guard. The governor replied that
civil powtr must be exhausted before the
state would interfere. At Seottdale the
labor leaders last night were considering
the advisability of offering the two big
coke companies 1,000 citizens and strikers
to protect their property.
Doing the Exhausting Act.
Warrants have been issued for eleven of
the Leith and twenty-seven of the Jim
town riot.'rs. An injunction was cranted
last evening restraining Master Workman
Wise and other labor leaders from con
gregating about the coke works or in any
way interfering with those who desire to

ber of deputies, left on a special train last
night to serve the injunction and arrest
those charged with riot.
Keeping People Awake Nights.

there has been since the bloody riots of
1SSC. At midnight fully 1.000 men were
on the hills surrounding the works.
Sheriff Closson had increased his force to
