BISMABCK'S ADVICE NEEDED Put at the Same Time the Kaiser Is Try ing to Belittle Dim and Seal His Lips. Probability that tha Government Will Find it Difficult to Pass the Army Bill Unless the Prince Come3 to the Kescne. Copyright, 1S0O, )j the New York Associated Pros Berlin, June 7. Chancellor VonCapriyi did not send a circular note to the powers, nor did he communicate with any foreign representative, except tho Austrian Ambas sador, on the subject of Prince Bismarck's utterances in interviews with newspaper correspondents. The alleged remarks of the Prince to the effect that Germany was not bound by treaty to assist Austria in the event of a war with Kussia over the struggle for dominance in tne uaiKan pen insula, caused Count Kalnoky to inquire how far tho Emperor and tho Chancellor shared this interpretation of tho responsi bilities of tho alliance. General . Von Caprivi, in his response, avoiding the discussion of such an interpretation, declined to attach any value to the reported interviews with tho retired states man. Princo Bismarck has written to both Signor Crispi and Count Kalnoky, correct ing tho irritating impressions arising from these reports of interviews. The Emperor and his ministers concur in respectful treatment of the ex-Chancellor. They recognize his full right to a public expres sion of his views on state atiairs through any medium ho may choose. Suggestions Lave been given to the omciftl press to allude to Prince Bismarck onlr when neces sary, and to then speak of him with nti vary in courtesy as a statesman who has rendered the greatest services to his coun try, but who has probably outlived his capacity to guide the affairs of tho nation. This exactly represents the attitudo the Emperor desires the ministers to assume towards Prince Bismarck. . .The North German Gazette, which is now as much Chancellor Von Caprivi's organ as minimize the import of the rrince'a utter ances, by declaring them to be those of a mere private gentleman, having nothing, whatever to do with the present policy of '' the empire, or with the means of inlluenc '' Sng it. This view of the ex-Chancellor's position, however, ignores the fact that ho . still holds intimate relations and a contin ual correspondence with the heads of the federal states, the leaders of the Conserva tives and National (Liberals, besides main taining touch with foreign statesmen. The government may soon be glad to accept his w m AW .A A A u w w u A A - u v ooiiicibautr ij jna vuv ciiujj uia& The Hamburgher Nachrichten intimates that the Prince, if he enters Parliament, will throw the weight of his influence on tho side of Chancellor Von Caprivi, with whose policy at home and abroad he con tinues to be in sympathy. Nothing is definitely decided as to his accepting a seat in the Reichstag, but it is understood that he will not do so unless occasion demands his presence to justify his policy as con tinned by Chancellor Von Caprivi. The occasion is likely soon to arise. The com- . mission on the army bill has disclosed a complete change of temper toward the government proposals. Before the Whitsuntide vacation, llerr , Reich ster alone openly opposed the credit demands. Dr. "Wiudthorst, . Ilerr Uennigsen and even some of the Conserva tives on the commission declare that the country will not support the continuous increase in the military charges. The frank admissions of Gen. Verdy Dn Ver tters, Minister of War, that he did cot know how much more money he would . be re quired to ask roused remonstrance on every 'aide. The opinions of tho constituencies were ascertained during tho recess, and ' these have- incited the members to demand ' explicit proposals, the augmentation of the numerical strength of the peace effective, vritn a definite budrt. Tho Centre party, the Freisiuniges. Volkspartei and Socialists are also combining to refuge to support the om unless it is accompanied by a provision lor a shorter period of compulsory military service, llerr Richter demands as the price of his support the establishment of a two years' service, the abolition of the imperial civil posts are accorded to sub-officers on retiring from the service, tho suppression of cadet schools, and the abolition of every thing which assists aristocrats to a special rank in the army. Finally he demands the suppression of the Septenuate. The coali tion will not insist upon all these demands, hut will hold out for enough to render the fate of the bill doubtful, while assuring stormy times within the Reichstag. It is a critical period for the government. ' Before the opposition of the commission hecame apparent the government expected to pass the anny bill and close the Reich stag during the first week of J uly, leaving the labor bill until the autamn session. The labor. commission will not complete its discussion of the bill for several weeks. The members desiro an adjournment until the autumn; the government does not de sire to pass the measure until it is seen how the workmen behavo after the expiration .'of the Socialist law at the end of Septem ber. It is improbable, thereforet that the hill will take its iinal shape until the end of autumn. Long before then the upheaval over tho army bill may alter tho position of the government. The lower house of the Prussian Diet to day rejected the clerical bill on third read ing. Minister Von Gossler sought to weak en the Centrist opposition by declaring that Dr. Windthorst was inaccurate in as serting that the Catholic bishops disap proved of the measure. On the contrary the minister said, the Pope had informed - V A A .A. WM.w. a w w A A XA A channels that were chosen in the negotia tion of the May laws, that the church ap proved of the bill. This statement did not afl'ect the issue, the Centrists voting solid ly and a number of Conservatives and .National Liberals joining them in rejecting the measure. Advices from London received at the Foreign Oflice report that Sir Percy Ander- son will arrive here on Monday to resume , " the negotiations with Dr. Kranel, head of the Colonial Department, relative to terri tory in Africa. The Emperors proposals made in his communication!! to Sir Edward Malttt. the British embassador, have been practically accepted, besides which the English concede to Germany a part of Ugamiland. The report of Major Wissmann, pub lished in a White Book to-day, advo cates the erection of fortified ports at Ta hora and Cinjaand the establishment of stations in the lakes, on which, he says, small armed steamers are indispensable The White Hook farther gives a report of Captain Valetto. from Zanzibar, stating that Ernin Pasha.wu'i his expedition, is proceeding to the Vr v'jria Nyanza. General Von Caprivi attended a grand military banquet to-night. Many gonerals r.nd a few civilian I were present. Tho Chancellor was givn a cordial greeting. Mr. Phelps, the American minister, was among the guests, an i was seated next to tho Chaucellor. . ,A . The Crown Prince of Italy will arrive here on Monday. He will stay at Potsdam tor four davs. During his visit he will at tend reviews of the troops, and be preseut at gala dinners and state concerts. He will attend the ceremony of laving the foundation-stone of the church to bo erected in mouiory of the late Empress Augusta. Tile accouching of tho Duchess of Sparta, sister of Emperor William, is expected to take place in July. If the child is a son the King of Greece will abdicate in favor of the Duko of Snarta. Empress Frederick will go to Athens after the event. The baptism of the daughter of Princo Frederick Leopold took placo at Potsdam on Wednesday. The new court costumes knee breeches, buckled shoes and silk stockings was universally worn. Prince Henry of Nassau has professed his conversion t the Catholic faith in the cathedral at Kritzlar. The Socialist, Janiszewski, who was tho opponent of Professor Virchow at the last efectiou, has been expelled from Berlin, lie was an intimate friend of Mendelsohn, who was recently arrested in Paris and was sentenced along with him at Poseu.

VENTURES INTO TIIE UNKNOWN. Nansen' Heroic Resolution to Find the North Pole The Fate of Letchhart. Hartford Coarant, When Dr. Nansen took his plunge into Greenland two years ago certain that he must carry out his plan fl crossing the country or die on the way observant read ers recognized the ort ox man who, if he lived through that experience, would do more Arctic exploring. As wo all know, he did live and has since been brooding an other journey into tho unknown. It has formulated in his mind, and the prepara tions are well under .way. What ho now proposes is to visit the north pole. Of course, at this late day no ono talks of that journev without a full knowledge of the lives lost and hardships endnred by former explorers, and an equal knowledge of the boundaries that have proved impen etrable, some approaching nearer than others, and many being turned back at nearly the same latitude. Equally, of course, a new candidate for the exploit must have a new idea' of how to approach the pole. Dr. Nansen's comes from a study of ocean currents. He points out that in going up west from Greenland explorers meet ice coming down. There is a strong southerly current here, and another to the east of Greenland, where, also, various at tempts to work far north have been made, and another adverse current is encountered north of Spitzbergcn, a route which has also been attempted. Theso three comprise the lines of attack -that have usually been followed by northern explorers. Now, Dr. Nansen very reasonably says that water must go north somewhere if all these currents are settling South, and he finds reasons both general and specific for believing that it Hows through Bchring sea. It was here that the Jeannette entered in 1S79. . She was shut in; and drifted in a northeasterly direction for two years, when she sunk. Two years later belongings of some of her crew drifted ashore on the southwest coast of Greenland, and what is known of the current.- makes it almost im possible that they should have como by any. route except through the nnknown region about the pole. With this and other things in mind, Dr. Nansen has decided' to make hi3 attempt via that line, carry pro visions for live years, abandou his vessel to the movements of the ice and see what comes of it. The plan is simple and heroic. It means the chance of a great success, or everlast ing night for Nansen. No one knows it bet ter, but when tho madness of Arctic explo ration is in the blood the man must work out his fate. It is a coincidence that while Nansen is preparing for his journey news comes of tho late of another traveler who, after a series of brilliant discoveries in Australia hf tv years ago, vanished from all human knowl edge. He was Ludwig Leichhardt. a young German doctor, who, with a small party, had explored Queensland, crossed the con- tinent, made important geographical and scientific discoveries, written a book and rushed off fo- another exploration to cross the continent from east to west. Four months later he was heard from, and that was the end. The first clew to his fate has just been published, though many search ing expeditions were sent out and occasion al rumors obtained, none of which bore ex amination. The story that has now como is from the north coast, where 'Alexander McPhce, starting out to investigate the story of a white man living amon the na tives, found only a native albino, but heard that another tribe fnrther to the southwest had a hatchet and other relics of a party of white men who had died tear them many years ago. The story con tinues: Only, the older men of the tribe could ro mcmber the white men. The party consist ed of two whites and two clothed blacks, and they had two horses. They came from the northeast. This part of the Australian waste is almost destitute of water, except in a few rocky reservoirs. The natives said they would not tell the whites where water might be found, for their own supply was scanty. The party pursued their des perate qnest, and shortly afterward tho natives found tho remains of tho horses, who had evidently perished first, and then the bodies of the men were discovered. The tribo had still in their possession, be sides the hatchet, Rome implements-and straps found on the horses, and bones both of the men and animals. It is believed that thin was Leichhardt' a patty, and if so he had nearly finished his task when death by thirst overtook him. A LATTER-DAY RUAPSODY. Lore's Young Dream a It Is Dreamed in a Far Southern City. New Orleans Times-Democrat. It was night in the city, and likewise in the country, and he and she stood out on a piazza on St. Charles street. Like tho fainting echoes of an angel sere nade that dims and dies when the roselights of morn stoal through tho window and wake us from our dream, the last chime of the church clock tolling 11 quivered to silence on the purple dark. The stars, those passion flowers that wreathe the bower of the heavens, bloomed large and golden, and tho red, dusky lamps on the street-cars sprinkled the night with the fulgence of rubies. The electric lights tipped the oleander's blooms with silver, lay in great splashes of pearl upon the green smooth grass, and smote the foun tains' babbling waters to dripping dia monds. A sweet breeze serenaded softly the . filmy-eyed and drowsing llowers, and the whole air was one languid dream of balmy odors. It was, in fact, an hour for romance, for tenderness, for love, for a proposal. The two stood close together, seemingly lost to the world. Their feet beeroed on tho first borderland of love's paradise. One hand of hers was laid pleadingly upon his shoulder, the other was passionately clasped in his. As I looked np the liquid gold of a risen star trickled through a leak- in the jasmine leaves and aureoled her hair, re vealed tho light of nn earnest entreaty in her eyes. Her lips trembled to speak, and base as it was 1 could but pause to listen. Surely, some word fragrant with love as a bloom with paradise odors, some expression into which she had melted the melody of her whole heart's passion would be breathed upon the air. Surely, some divine pearl of tenderness. Rome jeweled phrase that would sparkle eternal, starlike in his memor3 would greet her listening lover. Ho leaned a little closer he listened eagerly and his glad ear drank in theso mad, sweet words, '"Say. Charlie, how do you stand on the lottery!" CIGARETTE PICTURES TO GO. The leading Manufacturers Combine to Re duce Advertising Cost. rniladclphia Press. . ' The cigarette picture, with its bizarre colors has been put on its last legs by the formation os a Tobacco Trust, composed of all the leading cigarette manufacturers of this country. The central object of the trust is to reduce the cost of advertising to a minimum, and, as the pictorial end has been the most expensive, it is sure to be curtailed if not dropped altogether. For years tho small boy has been bogging "won't yer givo mo the picterf" He has collected a valuable collection of Indians, painttd in their most villainous dye. of sturdy athletes, base-ball players and what notenough to set up a Louvre gal lery of art in Smallboytown. Tho girls have induced their young men to get cigar Jtte pictures, with which thej have ad vanced and beautified their boudoir and shocked their mammas. All theso delights and joys are to bo relegated to ancient his tory by the big trust. In the "combine" are the firms that have been the heaviest caterers to that art which appeals most to the youthful taste, bnt find that the novel philanthropy is too costly. .The great question , that agitated them was how to 6top this picture-giving husiuess. As long as one gave tho rest had to do it too. to keep in the tide of pop ularity. Each firm in the "combine" has spent enough money on the pictures every year to make any man rich. It is estimated that in tho agcrcgate the firms have dropped annually for the last five years at least 2.000,000 in the matter of cigarette pict ures. In fact, it reached such a stage that the cost of the pictorial branch of their es tablishments was almost as heavy as tlio manufacture of the goods. One firm paid out $400,000 to the lithographers, last year, for artistic work. Anotherspent even more money, or 8150,000, while other firms, re ported payments of 5,000, $3.73,000 and j()0,C00 to the same purpose. These seem to be almost unimaginable expenditures for advertising, but it costs inouey to put world's sovereigns and beau ties, actresses and athletes, base-ball stars and birds of a feather on pictures. Each picture has many tints which hare to bo imprinted on it separately. - Many are beautified with gold-dust as well as printers' ink. Exceeding care has to be taken in the lithographer's establishment that one tint does not encrouch upon and spoil the other tints in a picture. 1 irst the sketches of the "picter." Then it goes to the lithographer, who has made five, ten or fifteen stones, as tho case may be,: each stone being used to impart certain tints. A large sheet of paper is then passed over the stones and comes out with scores of the pictures upon it. Ono lithograph firm of this city sup plied one ot the cigarette companies in the combine" with 15.000,000 pictures last year, besides 100,000 albums, each contain ing particular scries of pictures. The same firm did a similar amonnt of work for the other companies in the trust. It is under stood that a well-known cigarette manu facturing concern received a large amount of money from certain actors and actresses for having put their faces on cards. Tho panie story is told of the printing-of the base-ball player's scries. Probably, the most popular series was that of tho flags of all nations. As high as Si was paid the cigarette firm by persons who wished to have the set. A Information for the Census-Takers. Boston Transcript. ; " "Diseases! Great William Henry Harri son!
