er Bard on a Colony.
Washington Cmr, April 7. A repre
sentative of the United Press called upon
Secretary Rusk yesterday, and showed
him a telegram received from Berlin as
follows: "The German government has
raised the embargo on American pork.
The official declaration will ba delayed."
The secretary said that no official notifica
tion had been received by him in confirma
tion of this statement, but he added that
if snch action bad not already been deter
mined upon, be had very little doubt that
it would soon be.
Has Been Working to That End.' '
"The removal of this embargo," said the
secretary, "on American pork products in
Germany was one of the first things which
I determined to accomplish, if possible,
on assuming my present office. Imme
diately on the passage of the Edmunds
bill on Aug. 3d, 1890, I took steps, through
the department of state, to present to the
German government in the strongest
manner the propriety, in view of the pro
vision maae ii that law for the inspection
of American salt pork meats, to grant
oar exporters relief from the prohibition
actually existing on all American pork.
Microscopical Examination Necessary.
"The result of these negotiations showed
me that to obtain adequate concessions
from the German government it would
be necessary for us to provide for a mi
croscopical examination of all pork des
tined for their trade. Efforts were con
stantly made to secure necessary legisla
tion, resulting in the passage of the act
of March 8, 1801, upon which the recent
regulation issued by this department
are based, and on March 5, I caused the
droviftions or the law to be communicated
to the German government through the
department of state and our minister in
Berlin, accompanied by the declaration
that this department was prepared tocsr
ry inem out in such a manner as to afford
to the government of Germany the most
inorougn and satiKtactorv euarantee of
the immunity of all exports of American
pork to that country from trichina, and
any aisea.se nUecting the wholesomenes
of the meat."
PEACE OFFERING TO ITALY.
A Story Current In the Departments at
the National Capital.
WAsiiixtiTOX Citt, April 7. A good
Storv is told in the rienart mpnt ml tl.o
clubs to show that Secretary Blaine, and
not Premier Rudiui, was the first to make
a peace offering in the pendiiig trouble
with Italy. On Thursday morning last
two well-known public men, who have a
reputation lor waggish ness, were coming
down town. As they were approaching
Jackson square they saw two Italians
with a large orchestrion, or wheel piano,

Put I p a Job oa Blaine.
As one Itr.l.ita was grinding ont the
lively strains of '"Johnny, Get Yenr Gun"
an idea struck one of the warf. He
raised both hands dramatically as a
signal for the music to stop, and the
swarthy Italian at the crank ceased to
turn it. Then the wag pointed to Secre
tary Blaine's house in the next square be
low, and said: "There's a half-dollar for
you. Go down there aad play your
The Italian shruggsd his shoulders,
shook bis head, andnaid- "Ah, no. lie's
no good a; me know him."
"Yes, but he will do some goo 1 tbi

"I will give yon a quarter myself." Thjs
settled it, and leaving their tune half
played, the outfit started for the Blaine
A Sweet-Voiced Xrio.
On their arrival they opened up with
"Annie Rooney," and followed with some
pretty airs from the "Bohemian Girl."
The third selection brought upon the
scene Mr. Blaine's 125 pound mastiff,
probably the largest of its kind in Wash
ington City. The magnificent dog sat
himself down and began to howl a sym
pathetic accompaniment. When the air
from the popular Italian opera was being
played the ari:aal howled loud enough to
awaken the (lead. Faces now appeared at
the window of the uecond story, and then
came the secretary himself, lie instant
ly took in the httmor of the situation, es
pecially when he saw the grinning of the
men across the street. With a broad smile
on his face h drew from bis pocket a sil
ver coin, which wns thrown by another
person of the group to the musicians, and
the party then withdrew from the win

. POSTPONED THE FUNERAL.
Am Apparently Dead Woman Gives Signs
of Returning Life.
Lima, O., April 7. Mrs. Francis
O'Neill, a cousin of Sheriff O'N sill, of
Allen county, died suddenly Saturday
morning.' As deceased was apparently in
the best ot health Hp till the luon ent of
her death, it was attributed to heart fail
ure. Yesterday signs ot returnir g life
were noticed by the relatives. . Her body
became warm andft wicbed convulsively.
All the funeral arrangements which had
been made were postponed, but up to this
writing she has not recovered conscious
ness. The relatives have decided that
even if death appears certain thtyw'll
keep her remai ns in a ventilated vault
until her death is certain beyond ):rad
venture. The Trick Runs In the Family.
This actiou is taken on account of a sim
ilar occurrence in the case of her brother
five years ago. Henry Lawlor, brother of
Mrs. O'Neill, in March, IS, die 1 ap
parently, and all arrangements were
made for his burial. On the day wt for
the funeral he returned to life, and is hot
a proroiuent business man and leadiug
polit ician. The relatives of Airs. O Nei 1
are fearful t hat she may have experijneed
a trance as uid her brother.

A Rather Mixed Dispatch. ..
A Lansingdispatchsaysreturns received
tip to 10 o'clock show Democratic gains in
the cities, but a falling off in the country.'
A Grand Rapids dispatch at 11 o'clock
said: "Judging from returns thus far re
ceived the Republicans will carry the state.
Wayne county has gone Democratic by
2. C00, a loss of 2,000 to the Democrats, and
Houghton county, in the upper peninsula,
coes Democratic by 300, a net gain ot 600
the Democrats. Montgomery Rep.,
claims his own election. No figures are
obtainable, but the general indications
favor the Democrats. ,
Republicans Frobably Kleeted.
Later. Returns are still incomplete,
but it is safe to assume from present in
dications that the Rep nblican candidates
at large are returned by a small major
ity. Indications are that Montgomery,
Rep., tor supreme court justice, carries
the upper peninsula by about 3,000. The
Republicans appear to have made gains
in the smaller districts, while the Demo
cratic votes were all polled in the cities.
Returns from the Towns.
The following is gleaned from the dis
patches: Lansing elects the entire Demo
cratic ticket. Other Democratic towns
are Muskegon, Grand Rapids, Sault Ste.

Republican Benton Harbor, Coldwater,
Decatur and Holland. Dowagiac is a tie

the Alliatice was a secret order, the obj?ct
being the improvement of the financial
and social condition of the farmer.
That t incinnati Convention.
Any one joining would be expected to bs
ruled by the majority in his political
action, but would have some say iu shat-
ing the policy. The Cincinnati conven
tion would consider the question whether
tno agricultural and industrial organiza
tions of t he country should nominate a
national ticket in 1892, but the leaders of
the Alliance were not at all in sympathy
witn the tliml party movement, I 'resident
Polk, and McConnell, editor of the organ
of tho Alliance, The Kionomist, being op
posed to the Cincinnati gathering.
A Diplomatic Conclusion.
lie was convinced that no presidential
nomination would be made by the Alli
ance iu 1894 He was asked: "Have tbe
leaders of either of the great political par
ties made overtures to the Alliance look
ing to a combination whereby the demands
of the farmers can be recognized in na
tional legislation, providing the combina
tion should prove successful at the Dolls?"
and made the following very diplomatic
reply: "Both of the great political parties
