CRISIS IN GERMANY

The Kaiser Not Kn Rapport with the

The KuibarrntMUieiit Fills the Social

Hesitates to Part with His Chancellor
Riotous Doings at IJcrlin.
Beklis, March 19. The primary educa
tion bill which has been a bone of conten
tion ill the Prussian landtag for some time
has resulted in a ministerial crisK
Caprivi, who was pledged to the bill, has
followed Count von ZedlitzTruetzechler
bo was also a champion of the meas
ure anil resigned his portfolio. The em
peror, who is a strong friend of Caprivi,
but an opponent or at any rate a luke
warm advocate of the educational bill, is
thinking over some plan by which Caprivi
can be retained. There .is also a move
ment on foot to get Zedlitz back in har
ness. At the cabinet council yesterday
afternoon much pressure was brought to
bear on the count to induce him to recon
sider his resignation.
Stands by the Original Programme,
lie is said to have answered all argu
ments with the statement thut any varia
tion from the original programme for tue
school bill rendered it impossible for him
to retain ofliee. He was appointed to of
fice to frame and put through the landtag
such a bill after Minister Von Gossler, bis
predecessor, had failed, and he therefore
could not, with justice to himself, remain
in ofliee wiicu the government contem
plated withdrawing any of its support.
His resignation therefore must stand,
if the emperor would accept it. It is re
ported that Count Caprivi also declines to
withdraw his resignation.
Many Wild Humors Prevail.
The greatest excitement prevails here
end wild rumors are started hourly as to
the progress of affairs between emperor
and cabiuet. It was said last night that
the emperor will probably let Count Zed
litz go but will make every effort to retain
Caprivi. Among the Ultramontanes con
sternation is manifested at the sudden
turn of affairs, and they threaten that,
should Caprivi fall on account of his ad
herence to the bill, they will bolt the gov
ernment coalition in both landtag and
Social Democrat Jubilant.
The Independents, National Liberals
and Social Democrats are jubilant overthe
embarrassment of the government, and
predict that the emperor will be thrown
for legislative support ontheir parliament
ary representatives. Such an event would
necessitate a complete change of pro
gramme, an abandonment of the present
reactionary tendency, and the undoing of
much paternal legislation of the last two
sessions of the reichstag and landtag.
The Men and the Trouble.
Caprivi is the imperial chancellor of
Germany and also a member of the Prus
sian government. Zedlitz is Irussian
ministerof ecclesiastical affairs. This bill
over which the trouble arose is one that
tries to arrange matters between church
and state in regard to t he schools, and the
emperor thought it gave too much power
the Konian Catholic ecclesiastics. The
two ministers, however, were firm in their
support of the bill hence the difficulty.
Although Chancellor von Caprivi modi
fied his utterances lately a little as re
gards the school bill, he has not disclaim
ed the spirit of it.
The Emperor Going to Recuperate.
Caprivi, it is hoped, will consider him
self not only as Prussian minister but as
also imperial chancellor. He would make
a strange impression if be resigned on ac
count of such a purely Prussian matter as
their school question. The emperor has
the alternative of letting zeilitz alone go
and keeping both. The emperor has been
so fatigued by the excitement of the last
two duys and by the malady from which
he suffers tVat when the crisis shall
have passed l.o will go to the country to
A REVOLUTION ANNIVERSARY.
The Socialists Take the Opportunity to
Yesterday was the anniversary of the
revolution of 1S48. The memories of the
day and the excitement over the cabinet
crisis filled the streets with people, and
the socialists made a demonstration. They
gathered in thousands and went in pro
cession to Friedrichshain to decorate the
burial places of the victims who were mas
sacred by the military on the memorable
day in 1S48 when the king and queen of
Prussia stood with uncovered heads be
fore the dead. On their return they raised
revolutionary cries and gathered in the
streets shouting the same. Every time
large groups formed the police charged
and dispersed them. In most cases the
crowds retired before the charges. Twice,
however, the citizens refused to disperse,
and came to hand-to-hand fights with the
police. The latter then drew their swords
and used them as clubs. Women and
children were pushed in the struggle and
the street was filled with a shouting
crowd pressing up to join in the strug
gles. Bed Flags Displayed and Captured.
Ko weapons, so far as known now, were
drawn by the citizens, and it is reported by
the police that few were cut, although
many arrests were made on charges of re
sisting officers. Red flags were displayed
in a group of men on the Lansberger plats.
All were stopped and searched by the
police and six red flags which were found
were confiscated. It is reported that sev
eral men were cut in a scrimmage with
the police at the corner of the Palisaden
and Lansberger strasse and that two po
licemen were knocked down with stones
thrown by men in a crowd of anarchists.
The police deny this Great confusion
prevailed last night in the beer gardens
and on the coiners of the streets between
the Alexander platx and Friedrichshain
and 800 policemen were on duty in this
district. They are under orders to dis
perse with drawn sabers all street gather
ings. More trouble is expected.
Cries of the Revotatlealsts.
It was learned late last evening that re
stated charges were made by the police
witn urawn sworns near rue King s utter
in the afternoon and on the Lansberger
plats.' Many are said to have been wound
ed but the number is unknown as most ot
them were not arrested, but simply driven
into side streets. The charges were the
result of several gatherings round inflam
matory speakers, and shouts of "Dovro
with the classes." "Down with the police,"
and "Long Jive the revolution."
RUSSELL IS FOR CLEVELAND.
An Incident at the Ancient and Honor
able Artillery Banquet.
Boston, March 19. At a dinner Thurs
day night commemorative of the 254th an
niversary of the granting of the charter of
the Ancient and Honorable Artillery com
pany Governor Russell was present for a
short time and was introduced by Captain
Taylor as "The next president of the
United States." This announcement cre
ated the wildest enthusiasm, t he governor
ineffectually trying to make himself heard
for several minutes.
He Flings Away Ambition.
Finally when the noise had somewhat sub
sided Governor Kussoll said; Mitch as I appre
ciate the compliment of the introduction I
feel that I must rise and disclaim any ambi
tion or hifrh aspirations for that crest ofliee,
and proclaim my honest and loyal belief in the
candidacy of another, whom I earnestly and
heartily support. Loud cries of "Cleveland,"
"Cleveland!" at which the governor smiled
They Marry Because It's Cheap.
St. PETEK-snrnG, March 19. One of the
singular results of the Russian famine,
and one which is puzzling the economists
for an explanation, is the enormous in
crease in the number of marriages in the
afllicted districts. The theory most com
monly advanced to account for this matri
monial "boom" is that the fees charged by
the priests for performing marriages have
been greatly lessened. The priests find it
more uiflieult to get a living than in boun
tiful seasons, and have accordingly re
duced their rate, so as to bring marriage,
o to speak, within the means of the hum
Peoria Printer Want More Pay.
P'i:i., 111., March 19. Trouble is
threatened between the publishers and
the Typographical union of this city, on
account of a new scale that the printers
are seeking to enforce. The new scale is
an advance of nearly 20 per cent, over the
old one and cannot be met by some of the
employing printers, all of whom have
signified their willingness to accept the
old scale which is also claimed to he out
of proportion to that paid in similar cities.
One or two establishments will suffer
while many printers will be thrown out
Committed Suicide cm a Train.
CINCINNATI, March 1!'. A well-dressed
man, evidently a traveling salesman, got
on Ohio and Missippi train Xo. 4 at Vin
cennes yesterday. He had a ticket, for
Xorth Vernon and took a seat in the smok
ing car. . When the train was about half
a mile west of Sparksriiic, Iud., the man
suddenly arose and went out on the plat
form, pulled a pistol from his pocket, de
liberately placed it to his head and fired.
The next instant he plunged headlong
from the car. The train was stopped and
the suicide found lying doubled up in a
pool of blood.
Prohibition Naticiuiil Convention.
Grakd Ratids, Mich., March Chair
man Dickie, of the national prohibition
convention, who is here attending the
state convention, announces that the na
tional convention will be held in Cincin
nati. The convention selected delegates
to the national convention and adopted a
platform for cold water; money enough to
do business issued only by the govern
ment; suppression of trusts; tariff for
revenue only, and government control of
railways awl telegraphs. No fusion with
any party that docs not antagonize the
Senator Hill's Southern Trip.
Al'GrSTA, Ga., March 1!). Senator Hill
took a cruise around the harbor n; Savan
nah yesterday and later left for this place.
There were no stops, but at several places
the people gathered, cheered and fired
salutes. He was greeted enthusiastically
here and held a reception at night. He
also made a speech at t he opera house to
a packed audience. Resolutions were
adopted highly eulogizing him, but say
ing nothing about the presidency.' He
left here today at 1 p. m. direct for Wash
ington. Hctw Did That Cat Ciet There?
Toplka, Kan., March 19. A farmer
living in the northern part of Mitchell
county, while digging a well in ground
that had never been broken, came across
the skeleton of a small animal which
those versed in such things declared to be
that of a common cut. The skeleton was
found at a depth of thirty-five feet in a
bed of magneslan limestone. There is
much speculation as to the way it got
there, as it is perfect in every part- and in
excellent preservation, though showing
the signs of great age.
Will Come Down From Her Ferch.
X'EW York. March 10. The goddess
Diana, who has poised so proudly all win
ter on top of the tall tower of Madison
Square garden, is to come down from her
lofty perch. She is to be replaced, how.
ever, by a smaller edition of herself from
the hand of the same sculptor who de
signed the present statue, August St.
Gaudens. It has been agreed that with her
eighteen feet of height the goddess has
proved too large for the tower from an ar
Closing tiie Large Collieries.
Pottsville, Pa., March 19. In accord
ance with the agreement of the coal agents
at their meeting in New York city on
Wednesday to restrict coal production,
the Reading company, which now controls

collieries. Thus far in this region East

It Cost Abeillc a Lot of Money.

in Paris, occupying her own house. Her
eldest daughter, Andry, has been placed
in a convent at Auteuil. It is stated
that M. Abeille spent COO.000 francs on
Mrs. Deacon dnring the past year. It is
one of the many items of gossip abont the
case that when told he was dying Abeille
demanded pencil and paper and wrote
what he intended to le a will, stating his
desire that .Mrs. Deacon should have
1,000,000 francs and her youngest child
500,00 of his property.

to The Herald from Lyons, X. Y., says
that Sheriff Thornton when asked by ita
representative about a hole reported to
have been found in the wall of the cell of
Perry, the train robber, said that the hole
was not one through which Perry could
have got out; but it was a rat hole In

made in the shape of a saw. The cell in
which Perry is now confined is four by atx
feet and of huge stone cemented together.
