The Measure Advocated as One Likely to Promote Peace Between the Empires of William and Alex anderThe rreicicr Criti cises the Conduct and Motives of Leaders of the A grai ian Par tyBrazilian Eumors. Berlin, Feb. 27. The debate on the Russo-Ge'rmun treaty of commerce was continued today in the reichstag. Chan cellor von Caprivi lepelled the attacks made upon him for concluding the agree ment, and said that he would remain in office as long us the emperor was pleased to retain him. He asserted that the treaty met universal approval from a political point of view, and that its rejection would involve n coutinuance of the tariff war with Russia, According to Chancellor von Caprivi, the commercial treaty served the purpose of peace as well as the army bill and the dreibund. and it was the last link in the chain which commenced with the Aufcto-German tieaty. The chancellor reminded the reichstag that attempts to bring about an economic rapproachment , with Russia had proceeded for nearly a century, and he had only fulfiHed a prom ise which Prince Bismarck made in 18i3, that the conclusion-of a commercial treaty with Russia should bo effected by himself or by his successor. Continuing, the chancellor contended that the Agrarians only provoked enmity between husbandry ami manufacturing, and, in ditcussing the general policy, said: ... . "We do not care for martial glory: the only fame we desire is the solving of prob lems relating to the social and intellectual Improvement or the people, enabling na tions to live together amicably, and pie pariug the way for a future time when it may be necessary to bind together a larger group of nations in a great common economic policy. By constantly pursuing this policy, Germany has raised her pres tige." Herr Koenig, Anti Semite, and Herr Lutz, Conservative, followed in opposition To the treaty. Dr. Bennigsen, National Liberal, sup ported the treaty. The house adjourned. LoXDOX. Feb. 27. A dispatch to the Times from Berlin bays that Premier Caprjvi has declared categorically that the Prussian mimstery and the bundesrath were unanimous in their approval of the Russo-German treaty. If any differences prevailed at first, that proved how care fully the treaty was discussed. The be lief of Herr Wilhelm von Cardoff, loader of the Reichspartei, that the empire and Pruesia were at variances on the currency question and the silver commibsiou was ial6e. lie criticized in cdm and measured words the Agrarian agitation, and said that it bad never brought a single market to the landlords. "In the first place," ho said, "it separates husbandry from industry. Then, it is doing its best to eepnrate the east of the the empire from the west. Lastly, it is attempting to cut off taxes from the small landau proprietors. Tbo leaders of the ler-gne perhaps do not wish to do this, but the movement has grown too powerful for them to arrest It Wait for one or two years, and then remember what I told you." Chancellor von CapTivi's speech, the cor respondent says, has cleared lbs political atmosphere, and lightened the minds of many snpportera of the government, who bad doubted whether all was going nrnoothly. Tho correspondent Bays that less attention tha usual was paid to tho speech ol Here Bennigsen, Xational Lib eral, b ho ia expected shortly to retire from pahllc life. RUMORS FROM RIO. RlODK Jxsnsa.

Washington, Feb. 27. The wreck of the historic Kearsarge will be raised from Roucador reef if tho house committee on navai affairs has its way. Today the com mittee voted to report favorably Repre sentative Blair'3 bill, but went further than Mr. Blair. While his bill would ap propriate 30,000 for the undertaking, the committee decided to raise the sum to $45, 000. with a proviso that the wrecking company shall receive not more than 10, 000 if the attempt fails. Several proposals for raising the Kearsarge have been made to the government by wrecking companies, and it is represented that the attempt would be a perfectly feasible one. Representative McEttey of Massachu setts today introduced a bill to incorpor ate au organization formed by the veter ans who servtd on the Kearsarge during the war. It is called the Kear3arge Asso ciation of Naval Veterans, The survivers intend to collect mementoes of the old vessel, and when the organization cornea to an end they will be giyen to tne Smith sonian institution. Secretary of the Navy Herbert today sent to Representative Cummings of the house committee on naval affairs n letter iudorsing the project of raising the ship. He urged that any action towards a rescue should be taken at once. The naval com mittee heretofore sought to secure imme diate consideration for n bill framed ac cording to the secretary's suggestion. But Mr. Blaud demanded that the silver debate should proceed, adding that the Kear sarge rescue and other projects would have to wait until the silver bill was dis posed of. WRECK OF THE KEARSARGE- Captain Heyerman Tell the Story to tho Committee of Inquiry. NEW YORK, Feb. 27. The court of in quiry oidered by the secretary of the navy to investigate the wreck of the Kearsarge on Roncadoro reef, reconvened in the court martial room of the Brooklyn navy yard today. There was one extraordinary scene to mark the day's proceedings. Captain Heyerman broke down while telling the story of the wreck, and the court room was cleared until he could control his emotion. The first witness was Rear Admiral Stanton, who told in detail the story of the Kearsarge's voyage from the time she sailed from Port-nu-Princa until she struck on Roncadoro reef. The witness described the manner in which the officers aud crew left the vessel, as already told iu the orinted accounts. Then Captain Heyerman was called. After stating, In reply to the judge advo cate, that the reports printed in the public press were substantially correct, he was asked if he had saved any of the ship's records, particularly tho "rough" and "smooth" log books. "I made two attempts," slid he, "after the vessel struck, to save the log books as well as tha night-order books, knowing that tney would bo wauted as exhibits in tho investigation which I know would follow. I was, however, only able to save my life." Captain Heyerman iudentified several charts which had been in use on board the Kearsarge, One was an English cbart of Roncadore bank, and was issued from the bydronraphic office at Washington. It was corrected up to 1S93. Questioned as to his conlidence in the charts and instru menes on the Kearsarge, he said: "I had no douoc as to the accuracy of the charts ami the instruments on board. Tho uight sextant was a little out of gear, but the other instruments were in perfect condition." Captain Heyerman sld that he had been in the navy sinca 1601, and had com manded tha'Yautic, Kearsarge aud Pen sacola. Reverting to the day of the wreck, Cantittin Heyerman described the con dition of tne weather and the currents for thj half dozen hours previous to the Kearsarge's striking on the reef. He read the report of the navigator at intervals. Tha latitude was taken by the ships run ning. "I was sure that the Kearsarge was so far to the north of Roncodore reef that I was well clear of it." said he. "I had lookouts on tho topgallant yards all the afternoon, and at 3.20 o'clock sont an officer aloft to mako sure there was no danger in sight. The officer reported everything was all right." Tba brenkera was first reported at 0:53 o'clock. At that time Admiral Stanton, th navigator, Captain Heymermau and tho officer of tho any were on decK. 'What was the discrepancy," asked tho jndse ndvocate, "between tho point where yon really wero and where you thought you wero when tha ship struck." "About six miles to the southward and four mihm to tho eastward of tha point where I supposed we were from our reckou iug,,, was Captain Heyerman' reply. The wltnes then corroborated tho testi mony given by Admiral Stanton ns to bis ordar? Immediately after tne Kaarsirge strucJc. There was, according to Captniu Heytrmau, an interval of ouly two min utes at moat between the sighting of the wtilu water and the shock of Htrlklng on thu ref, Tua commander told how tha Kearrge was abandoned after it was eeo tha; 6he wa doomed. He also described th manner in which Seaman Anderson Robblus lost his life, whilo trying to wads from th outer reef to the main key. Then ha gave in detail the story of the encampment on the key and boarding of lha wrck to obtain provision nnd the uasnccessfnl search for tha nlghb-order book. Ho gave viyid description of the camp Ufa nud tho Robinson Crusoe bill ot fara icrved during tho stay oa tho key. Th- arrival of tha City ot P.ira and tno embarkatiou of the Keiwmrge's crew were interestingly recounted by Captain Heyerman. Whilo describing tha exemplary con duct of tha officers and crew While lying at tho wharf, as well as during the trying days on tb key, Captniu Heyerman be came visibly flected nt tna recollection of tho men's deep respect and love for him. Tha recalling of the dnvotion on the wart cf the crew wat too ranch for the bronztd com mander, nnd his month twitched at tho corners and the big tears welled np into his eyes. Ho flnahy had to stop owing to hU emotion. When he had rtcovered his composure, Captaiu Heyernmn concluded hU tcsttmonr with details of the return trip to New York. The cpurt then adjourned until to morrow. CHAIRMAN WILSON.
