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

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

the movement has grown too powerful for
them to arrest It Wait for one or two

suddenly stepped in front of the hones,
and, covering the occupants of the wagon
with u Winchester and a revolver, ordered
them to hale and throw up their hands.
As they were unarmed the command
was promptly obeyed.
They were then lined tio by tho side of
the road, and, whilo one of the robbers
went through their pockets, the other
covered them with a Winchester. One of
the boys, however, sprang at the robber
who had the kuu, and this was a signal
for a general fight in which the robbers
came off second be3t The one who stood
on guard received a bullet in the breast

Story of the Experience
of the Officers aud
Crew Upon the
Beef Gen
eral Jfotes.
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.
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
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
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.
