Over Wagner. "Lohengrin.
London, Sept. li. A Berlin dispatch
ays that the utterances of M. de Freyci
Dtt, the French minister for war, in favor
of peace are not regarded as of much
weight in Germany, owing to the fact that
the attitude of the French people re
mains so resolutely hostile, and that of
Russia is virtually aggressive. It is not
believed, however, that war will begin
on the Franco-Prussian frontier, but that
the drama will be opened at Constantino
ple. The news from that point has for
several days overcome in interest any
thing heard from France, and the opin
ion is openly expressed that a collision
will shortly take place between the Brit
ish and the porte. unless the sultun
chooses to yield to England" demands. If
he defies Lord Salisbury he may expect
to see the Russians, under the pretext of
assisting him, promptly occupy Constan
tinople; and if he does give in to the Brit
ish, then the Russians will become his en
emies. The Saltan's Plans Given Away.
The sultan is said to be most perplexed
over the situation, and angry at the dis
missed ministers, whom he accuses of hav
ing got him into the dilemma. The latest
story of their dismissal is that the grand
vizier, Kiamil, and the minister of war
permitted to leak out a plan that the sul
tan had formed for the overthrow of the
Khedive, Tewfix, and the resumption of
sovereignty over Egypt. The snltan had
long been urged by Russia and France to
put an end to British occupation in Egypt,
and his own inclinations were decidedly
in the same direction. It is said on excel
lent authority that a plot had been formed
to seize Tewak and to convey him to Con
stantinople as a prisoner, where his father,
Ismail, is now held in virtual captivity;
then to appoint a new kbedive by a firman
direct from the porte, and demand that
the British at once recognize his author
ity, which would be sustained by the land
ing of Turkish troops at Alexandria.
John Boll's Fleet Appears.
It was be.ieved that the British wouid
not, under such circumstances, care to
enter into open hostilities with the sultan
as suzerain of Egypt. The plot was be
lieved to be a profound secret, confined to
the sultan, to Vizier Kiamil, and the min
ister of war; but somehow the British
became aware of it. and the sudden ap
pearance of a British fleet at Alexandria
in July was the consequence of the dis
covery, and a notice both to the Egyptians
and to Turkey that any interference with
Tewfik would be followed by another
bombardment. This put an end to the
scheme, much to the chagrin of the sul
tan, who hat, ever since, it is said, beeu
determined upon a change of ministry,
although he deferred the blow apparently
in hopes that he would be able to detect
the British agent, if any. in his cabinet.
It is rumored at Constantinople that since
the dismissal of the ministers very cruel
means have been used to wring the in
formation from them and from their ser
vants, and that some of the latter hare
been subjected to torture aud even death.
Russia Ready for a Move.
A correspondent who has been visiting
the Russian southwestern frontier in Bes
sarabia, as far as the Danube, says that
troops are rapidly arriving and in large
numbers. This would be the base of de
parture for a Russian army advancing
toward the Balkans and Constantinople.
The points at which the troops are arriv
ing are of little consequence apart from
their situation, where an army of inva
sion would naturally concentrate. In
view of these facts the correspondent con
cludes that Russia intends at no distant
date to make across the Danube for Con
stantinople, and that her preparations
show that this time she means to have a
force large enough to overcome all ob
stacles. THE FRENCH "TEUTOPH OBISTS."
An Awful Row Over the Opera "Lohen
PARIS, Sept. 11. This city is in an up
roar ever the presence of Mme. Wagner,
who arrived here Tuesday to witness the
proposed performance of "Lohengrin" at
the Grand Opera house. She is installed
at the house of M. Gailhard, director of
the opera house, and this knowledge has
inflamed the Parisian populace almost be
yond control. The performance of "Lohen
grin' was fixed for Monday night, but re
sentment has reached such a height
that an outbreak can hardly be avoided
before that time, and serious trouble is
expected at tonight's performance of
"Faust." It is reported that at a meeting
of excited Frenchmen Wednesday night
it was decided to burn the opera house if
any attempt is made to produce the opera.
The authorities are taking measures to
prevent trouble today and will have a
large body of troops in readiness to sum
mon at a moment's notice.
Baron Hlrscli's Scheme.
London, Sept. 11. Today will be pub
lished the articles of association which
will formally launch Baron Hirsch's mag
nificent scheme of benefaction to the poor
and oppressed of his race. It takes the
form of a limited liability company called
"The Jewish Colonization association,"
registered, the office of which will be in
London. Its nominal capital will he
2,000,000, in 20,0.0 shares of 100 each. Of
these Baron Maurice de Hirsch subscribes
to 19,81)9. The -object i the settlement of

London, Sept. 11. The trades union
congress yesterday passed a resolution
condemning the sub-letting of govern
ment contracts to firms that refuse to
agree to the hours and wages decreed by
the trades unions. It was also resolved
that age limit for children employed in
factories should be 13 years.
Spain on the Eve of Revolution.
MADRID, Sept 11. The decision of the
ministry to call out the reserves and or
ganize a new army corps was, in the opin
ion of those who know Spain best, none
too soon. The government is in posses
sion of evidence showing the ex'stence of
a conspiracy to overthrow the monarchy
and establish a repablic There is no
dotbt that tf. recent Barcelona outbreak
was a premature explosion of a section of
anine that tb revolutionists abroad and

in laying. '
Gorst Watching the Labor People.
Loxdon, Sept 11. Sir John E. Gorst
i9 r'guar in his attendance at the labor
congress, in which he takes deep interest.
Wednesday, in an interview. Sir John said
that it was his intention to visit Chicago
dur Dg the progress of the World's fair,
and also to participate in the prceedings
of the labor congress, "that is," he added,
"supposing that I am relieved of the cares
of ffice, and you turning to Mr. Caine,
who . was present will probably have
ousted me bv that time."
AEiLE TO MAINTAIN THEMSELVES.
The Xew Policy of the Managers of Sol
Washington, Sept. 11. The board of
man tgers of the national homes for disa
bled soldiers concluded its quarterly meet
ing yesterday. At its last mediug the
boards created nn'dical boards at each
branch home to examine inmates and as
certain what proportion of them are not
disal led or able to maintain themselves.
In tlie Central branch the board found
that thirty-five inmates should be ex
cluded because they have sufficient income
to miiintain themselves, and that seven
teen '.nutates should be excluded because
they .re physically able.
A Difficult Question to Settle.
The board has not yet determined upon
the liae of policy to be pursued in these
cases. It is the desire to rid the homes of
the it mates who are really able to take
care cf themselve in order to afford room
for deserving veterans who are knocking
at the doors of the homes. But so many
considerations arise that it is not prac
ticable to apply a general rule, and each
individual case must be considered upon
its mi rits.
TO RESTORE TRANQUILITY.
The Chilian Junta Will Hold an Fleet iou

New York, Sept. 11. The Herald's
Valparaiso dispatches say the junta, at a

ingly designated as election day. Sen

presidential electors will be voted for.

Memi-ms, Tenn., Sept. 11. The Rev.
George F. Nightingale, pastor of one of
the largest colored Baptist churches in the
United States, has advised his people to
arm themselves with Winchester rifles for
the purpose of exterminating the whites.

advice, but others would not do so. A free
fight at long the factions was the result,
in which the furniture of the church was
smashed and a number of m n injured.
The police have arrested many of the ring
leaders. The recent Georgetown (Ky.)
lynching furnished the text for the Rev.
Nightingale's attack on the whites.

It Consists Principally of What They
Conldn't Find Out The Conclusion
Reached, However, That Some Sort ol

Three and a Half Years.
New York, Sept. 11. The coroner's jury
which has for some days been trying to
find out what caused the terrible Park
place disaster has submitted a verdict. It
is a very peculiar one, and does not specify
any person or persons who are to blame
for the disaster or any definitecause there
for. It finds that while the timbers and
walls of the building were of fairly good
material and construction, the iron col
umns were not as strong as the specifica
tions called for. It also finds that the fall
of the building resulted from the break
ing of one or more of these iron columns,
but that the fracture of the columns wai
due to some sudden shock applied to their
exterior and not primarily due to their in
Cause of the Shock Unknown.
The jury says, however that it is unable
to determine whether this was caused by
the explosion of benzine or some other
shock. In conclusion, the jury recom
mends that the legislature provide
for periodical inspection of all building?
used for printing, manufacturing, stor
age, or similar purpose, so as to insure
against overloading and the use of ex
plosives or dangerously inflammable sub
stances ia any building where other labor
