RIOTS IN BERLIN RENEWED.
Serious Encounters Between the Police
and the Populace.
EMPEROR WILLIAM'S FEARLESSNESS.
He Rides Boldly Through the Crowded
Streets and Is Received With
fjeclr.l to The Morning Ot&c
Beki.ix, Feb. 26.— The. authorities have
taken great alarm over the occurrences of
last nigh:, and have been on the gui vivo,
expecting llfat far more serious disturban
ces would follow the discovery of their own
strength l>y the workirignien.
Last nijzht every policeman was on duty.
The Chief of Police, in company with sev
eral of Ms aids, on horseback, visited the
different parts of the city that had been the
scenes of disturbances. The disorders on
the outskirts of Berlin were far more seri
ous than th;.se in the center of the city.
Inflamed by their excesses yesterday and
last night, the rioters many members of
whom had passed the whole night on the
street.-. began to renew their disturbances
tnis morninir. T!;e law-abiding residents
of the city have takoa alarm, and many of
them do not dare to leave their dwellings.
Iho Disturbances Renewed.
At an early boar menacing crowds of
workingmen bogan to assemble in U nter
den Linden. There was a strong force of
police present, however, ami they kept the
crowd of idlers continual iy moving. By
noon the crowd was augmented to such an
extent the police were compelled to charge
them to clear the streets. They met with a
deter:. resistance, but finally dispersed
The mob in Kaiser Wilbelm strasse was
specially determined to hold its ground.
The police charged several times with
drawn swords and finally, after a deter
mined resistance 0:1 the part of the rioters,
who fought with sticks and stones, they
were routed. Quite .1 number of the mem
bers of the mob were severely hurt and
all of the leaders fell into the hands of the
Menacing Mobs Assemble.
Several Socialistic meetings were held in
the vicinity of the Bourse, and this fact did
nut have a reassurlnc effect upen operations
there, as it was feared the mob might attach
that headquaitera of speculation; which is
held by many to be partly responsible for
the bad times existing.
During the course of the morning dis
orderly workinginen assembled at several
other points in the city, notably in the vis
cinity of the Brandenburg Rate, the
Museum and the square in frcut of the
cpera house, but when ordered to disperse
by the police they did so, muttering threats
but offering no resistance.
. At noon another large crowd collected In
the opera house square. The police
charged the niob with drawn swords and
disiersed them with little resistance.
Seven of tne ringleaders ct the mob were
Sterner .Ventures AilvUert.
It is evident the soldiers nre to be used
against the riotous element only as a last re
fcort to establish order.
It Is believed by many people that owing
to the inadequacy of the police force to
handle disturbances, though thus far their
conduct rrerits the highest praise, tne (Jov
ermnent should adopt sterner, measures to
put down the trouble once for all.
Roughs Tried to breaK through a line of po
lice at the castle gate and almost succeeded,
when a force (if mounted officers arrived and
broke up the crowd, rising down and injur
ing 'many of them.
Tlie Ivsisr'r's Fearlessness.
Emperor William does not show any anx
iety as to the final outcome of the present
truubies. These was great excitement in
the vicinity, of the cistle at 3:30 this nfter
nooti, whea his Majesty, attended by an
a d a;.d preceded by two mounted police
men, emerged on horseback from the castle
c-!iirt arid rode slowly through tlie streets
notwithstanding that they were packed by
excited masses of people, lie was loudly
and enthusiastically cheered by the ma-acs
through which he proceeded.
The Emperor assumed an air of the great
est nonchalance when he rode out to-day.
An attempt was made by the demonstrators

ize a pro< esi'.'n to follow him, but tiiey
were prevented by thenolic?. The Emper
or's brother. Prince Henry, drove in an
open carriage through Uut^r den Linden
this afternoon, aud was loudly cheered;
Ttte damage dune yesterday and to-day
amounts tv thousands of marks. Trie
newspapers warn tlie people against over
estimating the Importance of the disturb
ances, which, they say, are due to roughs.
The S<;ciali?t paper disclaim%on behalf of
the Socialist leader-, any connection with
t!:e rioters, and declares that the members
of the mob belong to the lowest dre^i of the
Curiosity of th Crowds.
Curiosity brought out at least £0,000 peo
ple to-day. Throughout the afternoon the
streets leading to the castle gardens were
crowded with people, who greatly hampered
tin' police, and this fact served tocause ex
aggerated Ideas of the extent of the dis
aster. The vress of all shades of politics
appeals to the public to reuiaiu in door*.
To-nicht's riots were extremely serious.
A iiutnbei of shops wera< entered by the
rioters, who smasned the furniture, aud all
ki:;di of goods were carried away in sacks.
In somp cases a regular trade was carried
on 11. the street in stolen good"-. An l!!l
--fuonded rumor was current to-day that an
attempt had been nr.ile to for. c an entrance
into the Empress Frederick's ralace.
All is quietat midnight. There was some
disorder n^ar Schloss Freiheit and the \**U
ace at 10 o'clock. Several arrest-; weie
n a'e, nr.il there was a disturbance at E.ist
Eud at 11 o'clock this evening.
Store* Kobb.d by Roach*.
Berlin, P'eb. 27.— Conflicts between thf>
police and a mob of 3000 rougiis continued
iv liosenthaler Btrasse until 10 o'clock last
tii^ht. The police attacked the. rioters with
the flat sides of their sp.berp. The xmb
was at length routed and dispersed Into
ftid* street*, where the scattered bands
began the work of looting the shops of
butefeers and bakers. It is asserted tiiat
only a few genuine workmen took part in
the demonstrations. It was remarked to
day that the police were less self-controlled
than yesterday. They attacked the mobs in
a more violent manner and did not scruple to
u*e the ed^e of their sabers. The result is
that the number wounded is larger than
yesterday. In Michael Kirch stia-se the
crowd became so enraged at a policeman
who drew his sword that he was disarmed
and dragged to the near-by canal. Had it
not been for the arrival of a detachment of
mounted officers be would have l»^
drowned. As it was he was badly beaten.
A strong force is guarding the palace and
patrolling the streets to-night, and every
precaution is being taken to meet further
sctbreaks from the rioter?.
The Emperor Knr.ijred.
The Emperor is furious owing to the
popular outbreak, and especially at the
story that he was trembling with fear while
at the window yesterday looking at the fight
bftween the rioters at;d polioc He was
very i ale, but tins has more likely been due
to excitement than to fear. From the be
havior of the police in their encounter with
the rioters to-day U is judged that the or .
mer have received ttrnigent orders not
to spare people if there should bo any
additional disturbance, for they did not
wait for the mob to approach, but charged
furiously at, them, bitting and pricking
them with their swords. The police de
tachments behaved itti llio greatest bru
tality throughout the day, ersing with
kicks and blows from their swords the most
peaceful gatherings. A cordon of military
and police was placed around the castlo pre
\eniiifg people from approaching within 303
yards ;of It. Outside this cordon crowds of
people were gathered In adjoining sheets,
lut few cared to cuine nearer during the
day. It is said that a number of arrows
were made, and it is rumored that others
arc to follow.
. . An Anarchist riot Discovered.
There is another rumor to the effect that
the cordon around lite palace is due to the
fact that the police have obtained trust

combining their stocks of dynamite cause a
terrific explosion, which might even have
caused the drath of the .emperor. The
rumor cannot be veritied, as the police re
fuse to answer the most simple questions.
It is known," however, that among the per

Opposition to the Government.
London, Fob. 26.— A Berlin correspondent
of the Times says : "The impression created
in Germany by Emperor William* speech
at Brandenburg is Indescribable. It is felt
the gauntlet is thrown down and the strug
gle of the Government with the over-grow
ing opposition is to be fought to the bitter
end. The education, liquor traffic and other
unpopular bills are to be forced through the
Legislature at nil costs. The Emperor's

The Ministers are now in the presence oi
the united opposition of the National Lib
erals, Radicals anil Socialists and the Gov
ernment will be delivered, bound hand and

The Berlin correspondent of the Times
declares that the laxity of the Government
is due to the attempt to minimize the extent
of tho disorder in the eyes of the public.
The correspondent further says that all
telegrams describing the rioting in terms
offending the German press censors were
refused transmission, and no accounts of
the later excesses on Thursday could be

London, Feb. 20.— The meager news of a

In every army more or less dfmoraHza
tion is produced by the tyranny hd<l harsh
ness of the non-commissioned officers. They
stand only an inch or two above the private
soldier, but their power to give annoyance
aud g>.ad into irritation are. out of a:i pro
portion to their rank. Rudyard Kipling
has given us glimpses of the sergeant's re
lation to his men iv India, and tin- love
the men bear to him when they, are abused.
O;<e would suppose that in Germany; with
a citizen army and the ranks well educated,
there would be considerate treatment com
bined with strict discipline, but it appears
the:u are abuses of the grossest description
in the German army, and ;;li due to the
petty spirit of brutish non-commissioned
officers. Without court-martial or any re
port to their superiors, or any authority
beyond their own malevolent whlrusCthete
despots think nothing of rainiiig 50 or 100
blows on the b.»cks of the soldiers they

resolutions wore adopted as follows: Re

voring the construction of the Nicaragua

requesting capitalists to aid in Us construc

Discussing Free Silver*
The silver question, the special order of
the day, came up, nad a free bimetallic
coinage resolution was read by the Secre
tary. Patterson of Colorado then spoke on
the subject. lie said that up to IS? g >ld
and silver were always legal lender and un
til 1873 silver was on a par with gold, but
after that it was aim classed as one of
the base i metals. In 1878, when ho was in Con
press, the silver bill was under discussion,
home of the most intelligent members who
voted against the bill did not know they
voted ti>- demonetize silver and to class it
among the baser metals. When this ti >V
ernment demonetized silVer Germany did
alike, arid one-half of the business world
lie attributed the financial disai'ors of
one year and a half ago to til.' anti-silver
biii. and said it caused England to call iv
gold from this country. Be asserted more
than 2O't of the o"0 members of Congress
were pledged to vote for the bill when it
came up. It \v;;s not only members from
the silver Mutes that advocated the meas
ure, lie alluded to the bounty on sugar^
and said he did not begrudge - cents I til
pound, as every industry should be encour
aged. Of all the industries iv the country
the silver miner unl. pro lihvr ate the only
laborers who do not .'••sk the Government for
a bounty. They only ask for the free eoiii
;ii:e of American silver. They want no
bounty and free silver (ould not be con
strued as a bounty. If silver is made .i legal
tender, it will increase the demand foi it
and eventually, place it on a par with gold.

Harvey of Utah spoke for the rcmonetlza

FAVORING THE BLAND BILL.
Tbe Free-Coinage Hen Claim a Majority
THEIR OPPONENTS FULLY ORGANIZED.
Resort to Be Hade to AH the Parliamentary
Tactics of Obstruction— National
Party Defeat Predicted.
Kicfiai to The Morning Call.
Washington, Feb. 26\— The free-coinage
men of the House feel elated over the ac
tion of last night's caucus In refusing to
consider any proposition for the delay of
free-coinage legislation, Uarter and bis
friends content themselves to-day by simply
announcing that they will oppose the Bland
bill by every parliamentary tactic in their
power when it comes un in the House, and
that it will never pass the lower branch of
Congress if the generosity of the Demo
cratic Committee on Rules h.13 placed at
their disposal the parliamentary weapons of
obstruction necessary to tire out and worry
the friends of the>measure by weeks of delay.
Tho free-coinage people openly deride
these pretensions and say that the Demo
crats who oppose the free-coinage bill for
the most part will merely content themselves
by recording their votes against the bill.
Consideration of the Bill.
Brand, Pierce and other leaders of free
coinage are to-day compiling and arranging
petitions to bo presented to-morrow to the
Committee on Rules, asking for a day for
the consideration of the free-coinage bill.
These petitions contain signatures of all
the friends oi free coinage.
Representative Pierce to-day said: "There
is no doubt the Rules Committee will re
port the order at an early dny, and the date
will also be get when the linal vote will be
taken. So far as the free-coinage men are
concerned," ho said, "they did not want
more than three or four days' debate — cer
tainly Dot more than a week. Bland will
insist, however, that the final action be
taken when the bill conies up,
A Majority Claimed.
"We will pass it through the House, send
It to the Senate, and the responsibility will
rest with that body. The bill has a clear
majority of forty votes In the House, so
there i* not the slightest doubt of its pas
sice. With ten Republicans favorable to
free coinage we will have about 210 votes
for the bill. The remainder; of the Repub
licans nnd 35 to 40 Democrats will vote
against the bill."
Barter of Ohio denies that he is discour
aged by lust night's caucus; which, he said,
• showed that "the strength of the craze Is not
so great as it was supposed, and that reason
is reasserting elf. If all classes of citi
zens throughout the country reach their
members of Congress here with protests
against such measures, the ultimate defeat
of the outrageous demands of the silver
people will :>.• assured. The passage of the
Bland bill will disrupt the Democratic
party as completely as did the slavery
question iv I860."
The i'enftion Office Investigation.
Secretary Noble was examined to-day by
the Special House Committee appointed 1 1
investigate the management of the Pension
Office Tho Secretary was asked if an op
portunity had been given young Raum to
defend himself from the charges made
against him, ai:il he replied: "No; I
thought the go< d of tie service demanded
Hint he should go, and I sent him."
E;iloe then asiced the Secretary about the
filing ol charges ngainst young Ivan in by
Howard and Engle, clerk* in the Pension
Office, charging Raum with demaudiug
money from them.
The Secretary said the Commissioner de
clared the charges were circulated to injure
him, and tiled counter-charges with a de
mand for the removal of these men and
Sueclal ilxaniiner Taylor, who was sas
peeted by the Commissioner with being con
nected with the matter. The Secretary said
he thought the charges about balanced each
other. Young Raum was out of the service,
and he refused to remove Howard and Engle.
Taylor he a-ked to resign because he (Noble)
had previously come to the conclusion that
it would advance the Government's interest.
Noltle said al! thrt ovals were for cnuse.
The Secretary was next asked about re
rating, which occasioned much comment
lie s:tid the responsibility originally rested
on Commissioner Blacky and when he found
that Commissioner Tanner was proceeding
to carry into effect his predecessor's ruling
to a decree highly injurious to tbe Govern
ment, he promptly stopped it. Re. ratings
were not for large amounts each month, but
as they went back ■ long lime the aggregate
was considerable. Noble said he wished to
say, as far as the efliciency of Commissioner
Kaum was concerned, hn thought he was
ruuning the Pension Bureau with great
The Anti-Option Bill.
The Senate Sub-committee on Judiciary
to-day resumed the hearing on the anti-op

thousands of persons were probably

Londov, Feb. 2(3.— The Conservatives,
who are urging the Government to dissolve
Parliament about E \ster, have their reasons
enforced by the daily difficulty experienced
by tha Conservative whips in keeping
enough members together to prevent the
opposition from snatching a division on
anything like an organized party struggle.
By the time Chaplin's small holding bill
has passed, the House will have no vitality
left for prolonged wrangles over the Irish
government bill. Siill, Balfour shows uo
disposition to recede from his intention to
carry that measure. In a letter to the Bris
tol Unionist Club be says ho hopes to com
plete the general scheme by introducing a
bill transferring to Ireland private bill legis
lation. Lord Salisbury has Informed his
supporters of his intention to hold a con
ference on the eve of the day that the Irish

IIOKKOKS OF VIVISECTION.
Ghastly Scenes Behind Closed Doors by
New York World
It has been commonly believed that vivi
section was not practiced to any consider
able extent In this country, but medical
records and the statements'; of those
whose veracity cannot be impeached
affirm the contrary. It might be
hoped that nothing so offensively brutal
as takes place in the French labora
tories could be disclosed here, but those who
read the- two following accounts will be able
to judge for themselves. The first is a de
scription of a visit made by a surgeon to
one of the veterinary schools in France, and
the other contains the particulars.of a dem
onstration given in the veterinary depart
ment of the University of Pennsylvania.
"Upon entering into what appeared to be
a place of dissection," says the visitor to
the foreign school, "I found myself sur
rounded not by dead but living subjects.
It was a building open to the air on one
side, furnished by many strong pillars ris
ing from the Boor to the roof. Here lay six
or seven living horses, fixed by every
mechanical device by the head, and
feet to these pillars, while the students
were engaged in performing differ
ent operations. The sight was truly hor
rible! The operations had begun early in
the forenoon (it being 3 o'clock ii. the after
noon when we entered the place), so that
the poor wretches hid ceased being ably to
make any violent struggles; but the dee »
heaving. of the panting chest and horrid
lcok of the eyes, when such were yet left in
the head— the head itself being lashed to a
pillar— were harrowing beyond endurance.
"The students had begun their day's wort
in the least vital parts of the animals; the
trunks were there, but they had lost their
tails, hoofs, ears, etc., and theoperatorslwere
now engaged in the more important opera
tions, such as tying the arteries treiannin*
the cranium, cutting down upon the sensitive
parts, as we were informed on expressing our
horror, that they might see the retr.ic
of the muscles, by pinching and irritating
the various nerves. One animal had the
side of the head, including the eye and ear,
completely dissected, and other students
were laying open and cauterizing the baclc
of the same animal."
The eje-s\ itncs-> of the experimentatioa
at the veterinary department of the Univer
sity oi Pennsylvania is a competent judga
as well as a person of veracity, and sayi
that he was inhered into a ro ..m with win
dows far above the grouud, to debar th«
us from looking in.
.! ■: was unlocked to permit hjra to
enter, and locked again when he was within.
He supposed there was to be a regular ex
amination of student-, but to his Miri>risehe
found there were to be experiments o* tha
most revolting description.
A horse w;is before him tied wkh a
baiter. The first pupil wr,^ told to drivo a
setou In the shoulder of the hors**, a must
painful operation; the second was asked
to perform tracheotomy— making an open
to the windpipe— and a third to
drive a seton into tlie hind flank. By
this time the horse had been "hob
bled," that is, so tied that it could not
move, and the next student was told to
dissect the nerves of tlie foot. No anes
thetic of any description was given to t!i»
horse, and when the demonstrations wers
linished and the profe-sor was asked by
sitor what would be done with t!ia
animal, he replied: "We leave it here,
and if it is alive in the morning we go on
with otner experiments."
That t lie word of the eye-witness may b«
the more readiiv believed, it should be said
that Professor Zuiil is a graduate of Aifort,
near Paris, and tl;at at this And suniiar
institutions as many as twelve horses are
operated upon ench week, and, if tht
live to endure them, sixty-four operation!
are performed on each.

Jayville Special to New Yorls World.
An unknown man, probably a tramp, was
horribly mutilated by a Carthage' and Adi
rondack 'rain. A* the train backed up to
the station here a bundle of dirt-soileJ and
blood-stained clothiu^ dropped to the track,
and twisted up in it was all that remained
of the man's body.
It is supposed that the man had been trv
inu to steal a ride on the train, as is often
done by tramps, by eatehinj the rods of

A Sensational Scene it the Grave of
Erie special to the Knquirer.

accused of being responsible for the younz
man's death, -attended the funeral. The
scene at the grave was most painful and
sensational. The unhappy young widow

that Joy's SarsapariUa will; actually cure headaches.
