BKHLIN, Nov. 1. Protestant Germany
lived in Luther's time j-trstenliiy. For the
emperor and many otber dignitaries of the
empire and all those of the I-iUtheran
church assembled at old Witten
berg to do honor to the reform
er's name in the redodication of the re
stored "Wittenburn church. Upon the
wooden doors of this old church Luther
nailed his theses against the indulguice
business. Near the town also he burned
the papal bull, showing his contempt for
that document by burning it over the spot
Where it was said were buried the clothing
ef those who had died of the plague.
A Drink from Luther's Goblet.
That the kaiser was the central figure
goes without saying. After the rededica
tion there was a luncheon attended by
German princes, foreijrn representatives
and other notables, and here the kaiser rose
with Luther's goblet in his hand and said:
"I am thankful to God that I shall drink
from the goblet presented to Martin Lu
ther by the town of Wittenberg on the oc
casion of his wedding in 1525. At that time
reformation had already got a foothold in
Germany. Therefore Luther's 400th birth
day inspired the plan to renovate the
Schlosskircbe where Luther's body lie.
My immortal grandfather. Emperor Will
lam I, ami my beloved father, Kmperorand
King Frederick III, intended that the ren
ovation of the church should be a monu
ment to the reformation. My grandfather
bad the means necessary for the work. To
hisfsuggsstion we owe all the details of
this building. His name will always be
connected with this monument to the
Fruit of the Reformation.
"For the living generation the Schloss
kirche ought to be not only a mark for the
past but also a serious warning for the
present and future. The Schlosskircbe is
the expression of the blessings brought to
ns by the Evangelical church and we
should not forget that this confession joins
ns to the whole of Christianity. Therein
Is the living bond of peace which reaches
beyond schism. In matters of faith there
Is now no constraint only the free convic
tion .of the heart is decisive and this is the
blessed fruit of the reformat inn. We
Evangelicals do not light anybody in
religious matters, but we cling to our con
fession until death. That is rny confidence,
my prayer, my hope." The emperor then
raised the goblet and drank to the health of
the assembled princes. He was received
with great ent husiasm.
At the Kededlcatlon.
Previous to this the kaiser had made a
speech in the old church in which he had
announced the strong adhesion of the
royal family to the Lutheran faith and de
clared: "We hope to be saved only by this
Evangelical faith, but we also hope that all
Bervnnts of the Evangelical church, will
always endeavor to dispose their functions
In the spirit of the clear and Christian faith.
The restored reformation is a guide to the
people in piety and faithfulness an sub
jects, and in Christian fellow love toward
nil fellow creatures, including those who
are of heterodox religion." The kaiser's
utterances evidently produced a strong im
pression upon the assembled hearers,
especially the North German princes, who
were plainly pleased with the strong
avowal of adhesion to the Lutheran faith.
The Koyal Arrival in Town.
Upon the arrival of the imperial party at
the railway station in Wittenlierg they
were welcomed by Prince Stolberg-Wemi-gerode,
who conducted them to the town
hall. The railway station is some distance
from the town, and the whole route was
lined with troops. Hack of the soldiers the
crowd stood four or five deep for the entire
distance. The emperor wore the uniform
of an ofTicer of the garde du corps. He
walked the entire distance from the station
to the town hall, and as he moved through
the lines of troops they presented arms,
while the crowd shouted and cheered en
thusiastically. LIKE THE NOTED OSBORNE CASE.

THE CHAMPION SEA SNAKE STORY.
A Sarplent with Green Kyes and 5oo Feel
London, Nov. 1. The mail steamer An
gola has arrived nt Liverpool with the big
gest sea serpent story yet told. Either the
1(X) or more ollicers, pasijeugers and crew
are a company of awful liars, or his majesty,
the sea serpent, mysteriously missing this
season from the American coast, has emi
grated to West Africa. This is the story of
the witnesses signed by everylnnly on
hoard: "While the vessel was steaming
between Hey JSeach and I-agers a long.
moyuut-ua4M.was discerned about a mile 1
front shore.' t
Could Ke No Mistake About It.
"It was traveling iriui opposite direction
to that in which the steamer was going and
it was kept in sight for more than ton
minutes. It w. i estimated that its length
would be about "J00 feet. The water at the
time was as smooth as a mill pond, so that
in unobstructed view of the monster could
le had. At one time it raised its enormous
head and hwiked in the direction of the
ship, showing two tremendous green eyes.
It was plainly visible to the naked eye,
but for closer inspection was looked at
through telescopes and field glasses."

Paris, Nov. 1. The miners on strike at
Cannaux have concluded after consulta

were prepared to take the places of the

An Insane Crime by a Daughter and a
Probable Kxplmrmt Ion.
Boston, Nov. 1. Mrs Annie E. Brown
lee, and aged lady residing with her daugh
ter at No. 00 Dana st ree., Cambridge, was
found dead in her houscvesterday with her
head pounded almost beyond the possibili
ty of recognition. Mrs.' Mary E. Marean,
the daughter, is under r.'rrest, charged with
the murder, which she admits having com
mitted. Mrs. Marean told the police that
she did not know why she had killed her
mother, and she is supposed to have been
temporarily insane when sheeommitted the
deed. The weapon used was a heavy
iron furnace shaker.
. Afraid of Leaving Iler Mother Alone.
' It seems that for a long time Mrs. Marean
has been very low spirited. She seems to
have had a fear lest she should die first and
leave behind her poor old mother without
any one to care for her. This thought so
preyed upon her mind that she frequently
spoke of it to others. The couple had just
enough money to get along modestly, but
nothing to spare. They owned the house
, in which they lived, which is quite a large
two-story, French-roofed dwelling. There
is no doubt about her insanity, the doctors

while Choynski is 25. They weighed 170
and 168 respectively. The fight was give

showing great improvement in ducking
and quickness with fuet and hands. In the
fifteenth round Godfrey threw caution to
the winds and laid himself open to Choyns

Godfrey was knocked silly.

New York. Nov. 1. Now that registra
Von for this state has been completed
Democrats and Republicans are busy figur
ing out their chances of victory or defeat.
The Democratic view of the situation may
be shown by the following, taken from The
Times: "The best promise of Democratic
success in this state is found in the regis
tration in this city, 303,759. It is about 34,
000 heavier than ever before. It is decidedly
a Democratic registration; the gains are all
Democratic, the decreases are all Republic
an. It is a great registration for Cleveland
and Stevenson. All the Democratic man
agers are sincerely satisfied with it. They
know what it means, because they know
how the registration was worked for by the
Democrats, and that it is fully up to their
private estimates of what it should le.
The Republican reserve vote has not come
out. The Republican managers knw it
and they are squirming around for "fake
explanations of the registration that will
encourage Republican workers in the states
that are doubtful, which is not the case
with New York state, which is Deinoratic.
From a Republican Standpoint.
The Republican view may be shown by
the following, taken from The Triliune:
"The registration in this city and through
out the suite is regarded by the Republican
leaders with complete satisfaction. A care
ful examina'ion of the returns not only
from New York, Kings county, and the
neighborhood of the city, but from the
smaller cities of the state and from the
rural districts, so far as heard from, which
was made Sunday at Republican headquar
ters, assured Chairman Hackett and his
associates in campaign work that the He
publicans are certain of carrying the sti-.te
for Harrison and Reid. The state
of New York can be lost to the
Republicans only by the occurrence of an
unforeseen contingency, and this is by no
means likely in a canvass like this. The
registration in this city is looked upon as
significantly favorable to the Republicans.
The Democrats have all along predicted a
lg registration of anywhere from JfcJO.OOO to
830.000 (the latter was Mr. Crocker's figure),
upon which they could predicate a plurality
for Mr. Cleveland of 75.000 to 80,000. The
normal increase would have brought it to
320,000, but the full registration is30.s:. a
heavy drop in the Democratic prophecies."
Spectulation on the Vote.
The fall-off from the registered vote on
election day may Ik? estimated at 7 per cent,
which would l 81.6X8. and leave -.iSS.OOO in
round numbers for the polled vote of the
city. Estimating the number of ballots
which will Im? cast for the Prohibitionists,
socialists and People's party and the defect
ive at 8.000, this will leave 380,000 votes to
be divided bet ween Harrison and Cleveland.
Four years ago Harrison received 1ih;,-J6
and C'h veland had 162,738. In lsxs Harri
son's vote was 17 per cent, bigger than
Blaine's in ISM. What the increase will le

CARLISLE AT NEW YORK.
The Kentucky SeiiHtor Tnlks to Demo
crat In Cooer 1'nion.
NEW YOKK, Nov. 1. Senator John G.
Carlisle, of Kentucky, addressed an enthu
siastic meeting in Cooper Union last night.
After thanking the people for their cordial
reception Carlisle said that notwithstand
ing the apparent apathy the people were
taking a profound interest in this contest,
and they would go to the polls and elect
Grover Cleveland president of the United
States. He said that this contest involved
not merely the possession of the federal of
fices for four years but also the more vital
interests of the Hwple atalmost every itoiut
where the jniwer of the government can af
fect them. Four years ago Grover Cleve
land was defeated for re-election. The
means by which this was accomplished are
now well known to the country.
Republican l-xl raragaiwe Charged.
At the same time iieople clecctd a small
Republican majority to the house of repre
sentatives and for two years.t he senate also
lM-iug Republican, every political depart
ment of the government was in the control
of that party. The result has lecn in
creased expenditures, increased taxation
and increased revenue. Carlisle vigorously
assailed the "extravagance of the Fifty
first congress," and said that if there was
nothing involved in the contest except the
question of public expenditure it would be
the solemn duty of every patriotic citizen
to g to the polls and put his seal of con
demnation upon Republican extravagance
Tackles the Tariff Question.
He then took up the tariff question. He
said it was not within the power of man to
devise a system of equal taxation of what
is called protective taxation; for when it
ceases to give one fiart of the people ad
vantages over another part of the people it
ceases to be protective. If all are taxed
alike, all are injured alike, and nobody is
benefitted. While absolute equality in the
distribution of the burdens of taxation is
practically unattainable in any system of
taxation, it is possible to equalize the lene
fits to be derived from the money raised by
taxation, and it is that for which the Dem
ocratic party is contending in this contest.
He closed with an argument for the con
tention of the Democratic party that the
government of the United State has no
constitutional power to tax the people ex
cept for public purposes.
TALKED REPUBLICAN DOCTRINE.
Major McKinley Addresses the People of
I'uughkeepsie. N. Y.
Poughkeepsie, N. Y., Nov. l". Major
McKinley made a speech here yesterday to
a large audience in Collingwood opera
house. The governor discussed the ques
tion of state banks, and declared that the
Democracy favored a return to a system of
banking under which the counterfeiters
prospered as well as the bankers. "If
there is anything upon which the two par
ties should unite it is upon a proposition
to let the currency of the country alone,"
said the governor; "for there is nothing so
debasing to a people as debased money."
The Democracy favored free trade; a tariff
for revenue only was British free trade,
and free trade kindled the fire" in Euro
pean furnaces and extinguished the fires in
Knows It la Protective.
"The tariff law of 1890 is a protective law.
I know it, because I helped make it. In
1860 in the hardware store 95 per cent, of
the articles for sale were made abroad and
5 per cent, at home; under the tariff law of
1890, S per cent, of the articles in the same
store were made abroad and 95 per cent, of
them at home. I know not what others
may think, but for me and mine there is no
place like home. I hold in my hand a tin
plate souvenir on which are the pictures of
Cleveland and Stevenson. The tinplate
was made abroad. Had it been made at
home these pictures would not adorn it. If
there is anything the average : Democratic
leader longs for, it is something foreign.
Had the Original Law to Show.
"The Democracy dislikes statistics show
ing the prosperity of American industry.
Well, they may arrest Mr. Peck, but they
cannot arrest American progress; they may
shut him up, but they cannot shut np our
factories." The governor held in his hand
a bundle, which, he said, was the original
copy of the tariff law of 1890, every line of
which was written in favor of and for the
American people, Cheers. The speaker
eulogized President Harrison and said
that his administration was one of the
cleanest and most thoroughly American
administrations in the history of America.
At the conclusion of the governor's
speech he was enthusiastically applauded.
