Berlin, Nov. B.— Chancellor yon Caprivi,
who has been visiting at Milan, this morn-
Ins received a deputation of German resi
dents of the city, who presented him with
an address. In replying, the Chancellor
sroke in terms of unofficial frankness of the
objects and the remit* of liis meeting with
the Italian Prime Minister. He concratu-
JateJ his visitors upon living in the beauti
liil country which was the center of art in
terests, and which was under a government
that was linked with that of Germany by a
policy of peace. His interviews with Signor
Crispi. he said, had cemented and perfected
the entente of the Driebuud. He had no
anxiety as to the immediate future, ar.d
■was confident peace would be maintained
fur a long time to come.
The Chancellor did not go to the length of
disclosing the issue to the discussion on
Signor Crispi's demand that the Enueror of
Aiisrla should return King Humbert's visit
liy going to Rome. The relations between
the Italian court Mid the Government of
Austria had been further strained by advices
from the Italian Embassador at Vienna
that Cardinal Galimberti, the Tapal nuncio,
bad been cmferriiig vuth the Emperor
Francis Joseph through the Empress and
the Archdukes to Weak the connection with
The Riforma of Rome contrived to get
hold of dispatches from Ordinal Gnlimberti
to the Pope reporting progress in his dl
plomacy tending to isolate the Italian Gov
ernment, The authenticity of the dispatches
has not t>eon denied.
Prime Minister Crispi has been for a long
I time urging that the Emperor of Austria
ought to return King Humbert's visit. He
now insists upon Austrian recognition of
Koine as the capita] of Italy by the Emper
or's going to'the Qutrinal. The official be
lief here is that Chancellor yon Caprivl
started with authority to soothe Sign* r
i rispl and King Humbert by a promise that
the Emperor of Austria would go to Home
in the spring.
A communication from Count Kalnoky,
■the Austro-IluuKarian Prime Minister, re
ceived before the. Chancellor left, it is under
stood announced that Emperor Francis
Joseph would submit in the even', of Sigr.or
Crispi maintaining that his reception in
Ri me is necessary for the continuance of
the triple alliance. Caprivi's remarks indi
cate that the affair has been settled as Sig
nor Crispi demanded.
The report that the Chancellor mooted
combined reprisals against the Unite! States
because of the UeKinley bill is unfounded.
Austrian paters are still hankering after
. retaliation, although the negotiations here
for a commercial coalition resulted in an
litter failure. Italy is the least affected by
the bill of any European State, and she
would not risk offending America to satisfy
a doubtful ally.
■ The Chancellor will return in time to pre
pare for the opening of the Landtag Wednes
day. Several reforms that are certain to be
promised in the speech from the throne will
be seriously opposed. The reduction in the
tariffs on wheat and rye and a reform
in the communal laws aiming at the aboli
tion of the old feudal rights will be fiercely
tested by the old Conservatives. The
belief in Ministerial circle, Is that the Em
peror is determined to make no con
. cessions. If the Lower House refuses to
accept the projected reforms the Govern
ment will be dissolved without delay. The
Mi-lU'il:iii'l Bill for the Landtag does not
conceal the fact that the island is to be used
for war purposes.

DKSPEIIATE POLITICAL- FIGHT.
Bloody Sequel to an Electicn-Djy Quarrel in
Lexington (Ky.), Nov. B.— Tho • terrible
election-day duel in Estill County, of which
only a meager mention was made in ill ■ dis
patches Wednesday, turns out to have been
one of the moat desperate encounters ever
witnessed in Kentucky. The men engaged
in the affair were Dr. Lilly, a prominent
young physician, and John Wilson. Com
missioner of the Common Schools of Estill
County. Lilly was a Republican and Wil
son a Democrat. .illy brought up a nrgro
to the polls to vote, when "Wilson challenged
him. The jndee coincided with Wilson and
the negro whs rejected. This tired up Lilly
and hot words ensued, resulting in the
drawing of pistols by both men. Lilly got
his weapon out readily, while Wilson's wea
pon hung in his pocket and was accident
ally discharged before he could I level it.
Meantime he received his antagonist's bul
lets, both lodging near the heart. ■>:<-
■ Toe wnunds, however, | were not imme
diately fatal, and the dreadful combat con
tinued. Wilson got hi* weapon free and
fired two shots, one of which struck Lilly
near the heart.
About this time Wilson's brother inter
fered, and succeeded In wresting Lilly's
weapon from his hands. Nothing daunted
him, however, and almost in the throes of
death he drew his knife and made several
fatal stabs in his enemy's body, and both
fell to the ground ; but the terrible duel was
not over. With his last ebbing strength
Wilson raised and fired the last load in his
pistol at Grant Lilly, brother of Dr. Lilly,
who had appeared on the scene, inflicting a
fatal wound. Not satisfied with this, Wil
son crawled over to where his antagonist
had fallen and burled the hammer of his
pistol In Lilly's head. Lilly died in a few
minutes, while Wilson . lingered until the
next noon. In addition to the already
named us having been shot, three outside
persons received bullets, but were not seri

most desperate that ever occurred in Estill

ple b 11-! in attendance.
The game was far below a meritorious
standard as regards fielding, but there was
some sharp, hard, long-shot hitting, and as
the result was very much in doubt at the
end of the sixth inning; the audience seemed
thoroughly pleased and interested.
Lnokabau was in tli Ib >x for the Mets.
and was lined out so hard in th* filth and
sixth innings that before the last mentioned

Coughlin, who, for the remainder of the

Shut Out by the Senntort.
SAfitAMKNTO, Nov. B.— lt look two hours
and five minutes to play to-day's game, when
it should have been played in an hour and a
half. Shaw was the principal cause of the
delay, most of his time being spent in trying
to convince the umpire that every ball he
pitched was a strike.
The game was a battle between pitcher*,
three hits being made off each. Shaw struck
out ten batters to Harper's three, but Har
per was the steadiest of the two, giving but
two bases on bal's, while Shaw gave eight
and hit a batsman. - Bowman caught a
steady game and threw well to bases. Loh
man had a hard time catching the erratic
Shaw. He had three costly passed balls and
threw rather poorly to bases.
Had it not been for errors by SUpleton
and Geitz in the sixth, the only errors made
by the Senators, the Colonels would have
been again shut out.

(line of the Annn.il Exhibition of the
1 lor .1 Society.
The third ana last day of tlie annual fall
exhibition ol the California State Flornl So
ciety was marked by a larger attendance
than on any previous day, and general were
the expressions of satisfaction of those in
charge at the highly gratifying success of
the exhibit throughout '
It was not thu aim of the society to make
a large display on this occasion or to exhibit
a great variety of flowers, ; lint rather to
make a good one; one that would arouse
enthusiasm mid urge competition in the cul
tivation of the Mikado's favurite, the chrys
anthemum, for this has been a chrysanthe
mum show . from first to last. The new
quarters of the society also possess many
striking advantages over Urn rooms used for
tin? exhibition in previous years in Irving
llall on Post street.
.The thief attraction last evening was a
fine display of water lillies from tin- Golden
Gate I'ark conservatory. It included a bud
of the Victoria Regta, a member of the
American water lily family , which. early in
the afternoon hail been placed :in a tub of
water, and, supported by an immense leaf,
gradually unfolded its beautiful self, to the
great delight of many eager watchers.
: Much credit is due J. I], Gardner for the
admirable manner in which be need this
exhibition. None of the llnwers will be
sold, though the society might realize quite
a sum from a disposal of the many be mtiful
varieties of chrysanthemums of which the
display was so largely composed, Jinn; have
been given away, but none were allowed to
be taken from the rooms before the exhibi
tion closed at 11 o'clock last night.
