An Active Contest Likely Before
the Republican Committee.
Objection Urged Against San Fran
cisco as the ico of Holding the
Convention, hat Eastern Morning
I'apcrs Would ho Unable to Get a
Report of tho Proceedings on Ac
count of the Difference in Time.
Hprr.nl to the Rrcoßn-UNioir.
Washington, Nov. lf>.—There isprom
its of a very active contest before the
ill publican National Committee between
ti: rival cities for the Republican Na
tional Convention. While Chicago has
announced thru no fight will be made by
presenlaiives of that city, but that
t:. y will take care of the convention if it
< ou.es to them unsought, there is under
stood to he a strong sentiment in tho
< ommittoe in ffcvor of meeting where they
met in 1888. It is urged that Chicago is
tb ■ most central and best able to take care
of the convention.* A great deal of work
is being done for Omaha, Minneapolis
and Cincinnati, and it is expected that
New York will come in withastrong bid.
ition urged against San Fran
cisoo is that if the convention is held
there the morning newspapers will be
unable to get reports of the proceedings
for tho morning issue, on account of r.
rence ir. time of three hours.
A gentleman said to-day: "1 have no
ticed that when a big prise-fight occurs
in Sin Francisco, or there is any kind of i
: meeting bad at night, we never Bee an 1
ccount oi'il out here until tho afternoon
papers come out. If the convention
Bhould hold night sessions at San Fran
and it undoubtedly would, to save
tune, as bo much would be consumed
going and coming, that the Eastern pa
| rs could get no report of the procoed
n .s after about 8 p. m. San Francisco
time. Allowing one hour for transmis
sion, thenewg would not got Lore until
: ter 12 o'clock, Eastern time. The few
wires would be so crowded out there that
Western I'nion would find itself
seriously embara aed, and could hardly,
if at all, transmit ihe volume of business,
be Eastern morning newspaper would
U : be in it."
at many persons here have ex
pressed themselves in tlie same way.
The Constitutionality ofthe Act Koine
Argued in the- Supreme Court.
Washington, Nov. ]<;.—Argument was
in the ; nited States Supreme
Court to-day in die anti-lottery cases, in
which the constitutionality of the recent
anti-lottery law was involved. The suits j
those brought by the United States;
; linst John X. Rapier, publisher of the
I " iter, and George W. Dupree,
publisher ofthe New Orh ans Stale*, for a
tion of the law prohibiting the send
in • through tho mail of newspapers con
. lottery advertisements. Counsel
oady submitted briefs, giving the
of argument, and this h:us been pub
■! in ttie press.
Tho first question came up when Car
ter, the well-known New \ork lawyer,
asked the pleasure of ihe court as to the
timeto be allowed for argument The
irt suggested three hour* Jbr tho lottery
people and two for the Government,
rhis was not satisfactory to Carter, who
wanted five hours, and Attorney-Genets]
W iller said the United states anil the peo
ple had ss much interest in the case as
tho other aide, and thought one side
dd not have more time than the other, !
though he probably would not want more
t n two hours. The court directed the
argument to proceed, and it would, if
iessary, extend the time. Haodie Say
lor of Mobile opened the argument for

London, Nov. 10.—The Queen will
proceed to the continent, according to
present arrangements, at the end of.
irch, and will remain abroad nearly
six weeks. She will go first to either
Florence or Aix-les Bainea, where she
will stay between three and four weeks,
and she will return home through Ger
many. The Queon is to be the guest of
Empress Frederick for about a week at
the latter's new chateau Cronburg in
Taunns County, after which she will
probably be entertained for a few days
at Coblentz by Emperor William, who is
very anxious to induce the Queen to visit
him in Berlin, but it is unlikely that she
i will consent to do so.
The Empress Eugenic is to be the guest
of the Queen at Windsor Castle next

near Monaco, and tho Duchess of Aosta,
Princess Letitia Bonaparte, intends to
establish a winter residence in the same
neighborhood. Empress Eugenic will
proceed early next month to Egypt. She
does not intend to return to England
until May,
(ape Martine is a new health station of
Riviera, lying between Mentone and
Monte Carlo, but it is a greater distance
from the Alpea Maritimes than are those
places, and thus it has an advantage over
them of nearly an hour more of sunshine

draughts which come down the valleys,
and which are serious drawbacks "at
many of tbe Riviera resorts.

Considering the furious manner in
which the Russian Hebrews have been
persecuted by the Imperial Government,
it is exceedingly remarkable that the
Grand Duke Alexia and his cousin, the
Duke of Leuchtenberg, should have been
i ntly guests at Baron Rothschild's
son-in-law, Michael Enphrussi, at bis
chateau livery near Melun, when there
was chase for their amusement and a
| a choice party was present to meet them,
i Enphrussi is himself the son of an Israel
ite trader of Odessa, and as the Russian
■'"riuc's would not have ventured to ac
cept his hospitality without obtaining
permission from the Fmperor, it seems
probable that a change of policy may bo
impending in St. Petersburg.
The Fins and Queen of the Hellenes

The fact that King George did not visit
Berlin when he left Copenhagen has ex
cited much gossip at the German Court.
The truth is that Fmperor William's an
noyance and anger at the conversion of
the Duchess of Sparta has by no means
abated. The Emperor, who would like
to exercise despotic control over every
member of his family, would not have
: relished his favorite sister's change of
faith under any circumstances, but par
ilarly resented its having been practi
cally managed by tlie Russian Court, aud
also because the Duchess acted quite in
dependently of him. and so far from so
liciting his permission to enter the
Greek Churck, did not even send notice
of her intention to him. The Fmperor's
exasperation was increased by a strong !
suspicion that Empress Frederick had ;
: all alone been acquainted with the in
| tention of the Duchess, and that she had
j expressed approval of the conversion. j

London, Nov. 10.—The Chronicle's cor
respondent at Shanghai says: The cap
ture of Tehwei, near Foo Choo, Tuesday,
by 15,000 rebels was a well-organized
rising by tbe rebels, armed with repeaters
and led by capable men. The outbreak
was directed mainly against tho authori
se , though an ti-foreign cries were heard.
The officials were powerless.
The European residents are .apprehen
sive of a spread oi tbe revolt. The Brit
ish Consul here, in an interview, said bo
believed the recent quietude is only tem

favorable period for outrages in China.

An Endeavor to Quiet the Effect of a
Reported Speech by the Emperor.
Vikn na, Nov. 10.—At a meeting of the
Budget Committee to-day, Count Kaluoky
assured the committee that the Fmperor's
speech, referred to by the Tagcblatt,
ought to cause no uneasiness; that al
though the Fmperor drew attention to
the contradiction between the prepara
tions for war and talk of peace, the Gov
ernment hoped the problem would find a
peaceful solution.
Referring to the Saturday panic, he
said the puhlie did not take a reasonable
view of the situation. One serious word,
exaggerated to serve private ends, was
sufficient to evolve an unwarranted panic
tie announced that the new commercial
treaties would go into operation Febru
ary 1, P!L'.
ihe Tageblatt to-day, notwithstanding
the denials of its story published Satur
day, to the offoet that tho Fmperor had
declared tho European situation critical,
insists that its report was strictly correct.
This report was at the bottom of the
panic on the Bourse Saturday. The hold
ers of stocks aud bonds, fearing that the
Emperor's words pr»sagpd war, made a
wild rush to soil, and the result was a de
cline not equaled in many years.
The A'end Post, having received In
structions from the Prime Minister,
issued a statement declaring no truth in
the TagcblaW* story.
The Tageblatt says the language of the
Emperor was drawn forth upon the occa
sion of an audiance granted to tbe Presi
dent of a Polish club. It reiterates that
in a conversation that took place the Fm
peror used the words attributed to him
by the Tageblatt on Saturday, which in
su'os.ance were that "the famine which
now prevails in Russia has greatly in
creased the chances of war." So confi
dent is the Tageblatt in tho reliability
and truthfulness of the person who fur
nished the information Avhich had such
serious results, that it has asked the pub
lic prosecutor to make a close and search
ing investigation as to the truth ofthe
announced that the Zollverein

Conflicting Reports as to tho True
State of A Hairs.
London, Nov. 16.—News from Brazil
continues of the 1 most conflicting charac
ter, official dispatches from Rio do Janeiro
asserting with unequivocal positiveness
that the country is absolutely tranquil,
while telegrams from Buenos Ayres and
Santiago report Brazil torn with dissen
sions and secession. The actual facts will
probably not be known until mail ad
vices are received. An official censorship
prevents dispatches not approved by the
Government reaching Europe direct. It
is not known how such dispatches reach
Buenos Ayres and Chile. The latest offi
cial advices from Brazil state that the
trouble in Rio Grande do Sul is purely
local, and that the government of that
State is now in the hands of a provisional
Junta. It is inferred from this that the
authorities at Rio regard the .Junta as in
sympathy with the central Government.
but this theory is contradicted by dis
patches from Santiago to the Times. These
declare that the Provisional Junta has
taken absolute control, and asserts that !
it has an army of :;0,0 10 men armed with
rilles. It is short of artillery, and lias
but one war vessel, a river monitor lightly
