More Trouble Over a Diplomat
Sent to Austria.
ANTI-SEMITISM BOBS UP AGAIN,
And the Vienna Officials Are Reported
to Object to Max Jad Keiley Case
Recalled with Bay ard'a Position in Re
gard.Thereto A Hatch of Gossip About
Official Appointments Some Reports
Not Encouraging to Applicants Our
Defense Against Cholera Better Than
Washington. April 3. Cable messages
from Vienna stating that the anti-Semitic
organisations and other bodies in that city
are vigorously protesting against the re
ception of Max Judd, of Missouri, a He
brew citizen of the United States and a
native of Austria, nominated and con
firmed as consul general to Vienna, have
necessarily recalled the Keiley incident of
Cleveland's previous administration in con
nection with the same country. The anti
semitic feeling played an important part
in the refusal of Austria to receive Minis
ter Keiley and resulted in the practical
suspension of diplomatic relations between
the two countries for over a year.
Why Italy Rejected Keiley.
Anthony M. Keiley, a citizen of Rich
mond, Va., was first selected by President
Cleveland and his secretary of state. Bay
ard, as minister to Italy, but was declared
a persona non grata by the king of Italy on
account of some very strong opinions ho
had publicly expressed as to the overthrow
of the temporal power of the pope by the
Italian covernment. Resigning as minis
ter to Italy, on this objection being made
known, Mr. Keiley was almost immediate
ly nominated as minister to Austria. Here
another and equally fatal objection was
encduntered. Mclane, then our minister
to Prance, cabled Baya.r May 27. 18S5,
that "Mr. Kiley'a position in Vienna
would be difficult. It not impossible, in
consequence of. the faf.t that bis wife was a
Tha United States' ro.lt Ion,
Tothif Intimation, Bayard replied that
Keiley had already Bailed and that "the
United States could not constitutionally
admit, consider or discuss any supposed
disqualification of its officers based uhba
religion." .Latter in tbe correspondence
this objection was supplanted, according
to a dispatch from u nited btates Minister
John M. Francis, dated Vienna, J one 17,
1S85, by the statement of the
Austrian minister of foreign affairs that
"the alleged fact that this (Keiley's) wife
was a Jewess did not influence the judg
ment of his majesty's -government in the
premises," hot it had baeu guided by the
fact thaft-'laXili.niVj government, a near
neighbor, had objected to 'him as the
United States representatives at its court."
Itavwrtl I'erslats in III View.
Bayard, however, persisted in holding
that tbe fact that Keiley's wife was a Jew
ess was the coutroling influence. In a dis
patch to Baron iScLaeiTer, tbe Austrian
representative at Washington, of about
the same date, he said: "The only objec
tion assigned by Count Kalnoky to receive
Mr. Keiley being the religious faith of the
latter's wife was answered by my note of
May IS." The upshot of the whole ufTair'was
that Keiley was. shunted oil to Kgypt as
one of the judges of the international court
there, which position he still retains; that
tbe Austrian minister iu Washington was
riven indefinite leave of aliscnce, and that
the United States did not appoint another
minister to Austria until the government
of that country itself made the first ad
vances more than twelve months after
ward. Opened tlte Ouestioli Aain.
In view of these facts standing out so
prominently in the diplomatic correspond
ence of the United States, it is being asked
whether the selection of a Hebrew citizen
of the United States Tor the important
position of consul general in Vienna was
intended to renew the former cause of dis
cussion or whether it was merely an acci
dent. A BATCH OF OFFICIAL NOTES.
Some lleuiarks that Are Not Encouraging
to tlie Impatient.
Washington, April 3. Among the presi
dent's callers Saturday was a Republican
congressman from Illinois, General Hen
derson, who put in a good word for office
holders in his district and called attention
to the fact that President Harrison made
no removals in the district of Democrats,
letting them Berve out their terms. Presi
dent Cleveland in reply said to Henderson
that he did not expect to make any changes
himself before the expiration of the four
year term of office, except in cases where
he felt compelled by circumstances to
make removals earlier. Another interest
ing remark was made by the president to a
couple of gentlemen who called to discuss
the public printer's oflice. The informa
tion they received led them to believe that
Public Printer Palmer would be per
muted to continue in oflice until the close
of his term.
o I'olitics in tbe Navy Yards.
An order issued by Secretary Herbert
shows that he intends to continue the
policy adopted by Secretary Tracy by re
moving places in the navy yards from poli
tical influence and requiring appointments
and promotions therein to be based on fit
ness as shown by examinations. Kxamin
tions to places as superintendent of the
rope walk at Boston, electrician at New
York and assistant electrician at Norfolk,
will be held in those cities on the 11th insL
and will be the same in scope as during the
Simpson Not in the Divvy.
Jerry Simpson called for a few minutes,
but it is unlikely that he can get offices for
any of his friends, as the adminiatresion
does not iuteud to recognize Populists.
James Whitcomb Riley, the Hoosier
poet, called. He had two sterling Indian
ians as his sponsors Marshal Ban Rans
dell, a Republican, being one, and Colonel
Dick Bright, the next Democratic ser-geant-at-arms
of the senate, he other.
Senator Palmer, of Illinois, Called about
offices, and he feels pretty sure Sherwood
Dixon will be named as United States dis
trict attorney for northern Illinois.
John McConnell. a man six feet, four
inches high, would like to be marshal
of the northern district of Texas, where
trouble is by no means rare.
Jerome Hertf, of Peru, Ind., wishes to
be consul general at Havana.
Said to Have Been Selected.
James F. Meline, the assistant cashier of

war in an Ohio regiment. He has been in
the treasury department ever since.
Edmund Curtis, of New York city, haa
been selected for the office of assistant sec
retary of the treasury. His nomination
will be sent to the senate this week.

sioner of the general land office, and is at
present cashier of the German National
bank at Beaver Dam.

island of Amoy, China, had issued
a proclamation prohibiting the sale
or use of kerosene oil by hi.
subjects. As the trade in this oil
it almost wholly American. Dr. Bedlos,
United States consul ut Amoy, protested
vigorously against the proclamation on the
ground that it violated treaty rights, and
demanded its withdrawal.
Where Is the Tillman WingAlf
Washington, April 3. Senator Irby, of
South Carolina, and the representatives in
congress of the Tillman wing of the De
mocracy, have united in a long manifesto
to President Cleveland asking whether it
is the purpose of the administration to
recognize them us the representatives of
the Democratic party of South Carolina
or to treat them as third party men not
entitled to patronage. They say in the
letter that they represent 00,000 out of 75,
000 Democratic voters iu the state.
No land in tbe Strip llefore June.
Washington, April 3. From informa
tion obtained from the interior department
is learned that the race across the Indian
territory for lands in the Cherokee strip
can not take place before June
aud it is likely that it will not
be until the hot days of July that
the latest Oklahoma boomers will be per
mitted to enter upon the Cherokee strip.
A considerable survey of Indian allotments
must first be made.

Washington, April 3. General Scho

Pressing Debts on the Tabernacle in
Process of Liquidation.
BisxjKLYN, April 3. The Rev. Dr. Tal

cial difficulties iu which the big Brooklyn
Tabernacle is involved, that $10,000 of the
$2Q,000 due this month would be paid to
dav and the remainder biter in the month. .
"Of course," he said, "this is only a small
part of the indebtedness of the Tabernacle,
but the other debts are not troubling us at
present. We see the light but we may not
be entirely out of the woods. I do not feel
any shame in asking for this aid from the
people, for our church has done its share to
help others and it is a church for the peo
ple. I am encouraged to go on."

beautiful summer residence Joe Jefferson,
the actor, was totally destroyed by fira
Saturday. Helen McGrath, the cook,

by gasoline. Two other women were in
imminent peril, but were saved by the
hired man, Mr. Wright. He made a heroie
effort to get back to Miss McGrath, and
was severely burned while doing so, but it
was vain. Mrs. Jefferson was ill in bed

derful antiques and rare pieces of bric-a-brac,

where many famous statesmen and actors
have been entertained by the genial host.
President Cleveland had frequently shared
Jefferson's hospitality there. Governor
Russell, who had been fishing in a neigh
boring stream, was one of the first to ar
rive at the scene and he was of great assist
ance to Mrs. Jefferson.
