I'OirrLAND, Ore.. Dec. 3. The British
Bhip Nelson, which was re-ported lost oft
the Columbia river yesterday, was towed
into Vugt.t sound to-day by the steamer
Walla Walla, bound from San Francisco to
Seattle. The hull of the Nelson is practi
cally intact, but her bulwarks are smashed,
life-boats and forerigy;ing carried away and
cabins damaged. There are only three
inches of water in her hold, but the extent
of the damage to her cargo of wheat is not
The Nelson had a marvelous escape from
destruction, according to Captain Perriam.
She crossed the Columbia river bar a week
ago to-night, and before she had gone a
great distance she encountered a severe
storm and was roughly handled. Her cargo
of wheat shifted, causing her to list to star
board and almost stand on her beam ends.
In this condition she was picked up by the
tug Wallula and an effort was made to tow
her to Astoria, but the tug had to abandon
her. Later the powerful tug Tatoosh took
hold of her but found it impossible to tow
her In, owing t the fury of the gale and
heavy seas. The captain of the Tatoosh
decided to tow her to i'ugr-t sound, but had
not proceeded fur when the gale increased
in fury and on Tuesday night the hawser
parted and the Tatoosh was unable to find
the vessel when daylight came. The Nel
son lired rockets and burned flashlights all
nii-rht, but failed to aitrack the attention
of any vessel. On Wednesday morning the
steamer Walla Walla picked her up north of
Grey's harbor. A high sea was on at that
time, and it was with much difficulty that
a hawser was got on board.

Count Tolstoi Suffering: from a Serere
Cold 11 ! Devotee Drowned
Aeur the City of Gon.
LONDON, Doc. C The Dutch government
and the Dutch court are again strenuously
denying the stories of matrimonial quar
rels between Queen Wilhelmina and the
prince consort, but tho scandal his be
come too public to allow any hope of hush
ing it up. According to tome reports, a
reconciliation between the Queen and
Prince Henry was effected largely through
the influence of Emperor William, and
the Queen mother, in order to preserve an
appearance of concord, e ven paid the prince
consort's debts. The Dutch ministers at
foreign courts continue to aver that the
couple live in "an ideally happy union," and
"are devotedly attached to each other,"
AMSTERDAM, Dec. 5. With the view of
allaying public indignation and excitement,
semi-official intimations have been circu
lated to the effect that Queen Wilhelmina
has forgiven her husband, Prince Henry
of The Netherlands, the suggestion being
that the public ought to follow suit.
Since Princo Henry returned to Het Loo
the Queen ana he have been dining togeth
er and gradually resuming normal rela
tions. Yesterday they walked together and
afterward drova m the castle park. The
relations between Prince Henry and the
members of the court are, however, very
strained. The former' cordiality has bcn
replaced by an attitude of frigid politeness
on the part of the prince consort, and, ap
parently, the gentlemen of the court are
equally indisposed to gloss over recent oc
currences. NOT DEAD AM) IIL'IUED.
Count Tolstoi Merely SufTerlngr from a
Severe Cold and Fatigue.
NEW YORK, Dec. 5. The St. Petersburg
correspondent of the London Times and
New York Times, commenting on the cir
cumstantial reports of the illness, death
and burial of Count Tolstoi, which have
recently appeared, contradicts them on the
best authority. He says Count Tolstoi is
suffering from a severe cold and fatigue,
from overindulgence in his favorite exer
cise, riding. There is, however, no cause
for immediate anxiety regarding his condi
tion. The circulation of the reports, says
the correspondent, was caused by the wide
spread belief that when Tolstoi does die
the news will be kept by the censorship
from the public as long as possible. The
ecclesiastical authorities cannot accord
Christian burial to Tolstoi, as they have
recently denounced him as a heretic.

The Carriere Interview Faked.
PARIS, Dec. 6. Major Carriere, who was
prosecutor at the Rennes court-matrlal of
Captain Dreyfus and who has lately been
placed upon tho retired list, has written
a letter to the morning papers in which
he characterizes as unauthorized an in
terview with himself published here this
week. In this Interview Major Carriere
said he could get no appointment from the
minister of Justice, as the minister hated
him for the condemnation of Dreyfus, and
that General De Galllfet, who was minister
of war at the time of the Itennes court
martial, had denied that he, Carriere, had
orders to sum up in favor of Dreyfus's in
nocence. Major Carriere says he must have
misunderstood, as it had never entered his
head that Gallifet had ordered him to con
clude in favor of the innocence of Dreyfus
and that he had never said so.
I'ralse nnd ' Criticism.
LONDON, Dec. 6.-The Times, in its finan
cial articles this morning, discusses the
question of credit relations with the United
States and Europe. The Times regards the
time as still distant when the United
States will become a great banking nation
and compliments Mr. Gape as the best
secretary of the treasury for many years
past. The paper says it remains to be
seen whether all the big American schemes
which European capitalists are directly
or indirectly linancing at the rresent mo
ment will prove prolitable as soon as san
guine people expect. "We think that dur
ing the last year American energy and
optimism have to some extent outrun dis
cretion," says the Times, "and some of the
best qualiiied judges in the United States
seem to agree with us."
Gold Payment Plan Modified.
MADRID, Dec. 5. The Chamber of Dep
uties has elected a committee to examine
into the bill introduced on Dec. 2 by the

in gold of the customs duties on imports

ucts and other specified materials. It i.s
understood an arrangement has been ar
rived at between the committee and min
ister of finance to exempt the payment of
gold duties on articles of food and extend
ing the measure to luxuries. There is ev
ery likelihood that the resignation of the
minister of finance is now averted.

HERR BEBEL OBJECTS
DELIVERS A STRONG ANTI-TAHIFF
SPEECH IN THE REICHSTAG.
Socialist vrltlt a Small Cndy but Large
Head Stirs Up Supporters
of the Measure.
TWO NATIONS IN GERMANY
THEY ARE THE PLUNDERERS AND
THE PLUNDERED, HE SAYS.
Severe Attack on Agrarians for Ad
vornting Imposition of the
BERLIN, Dec. 5. The most insignificant
looking man In the Reichstag, Herr Bebel,
broke its didactic monotony to-day and
shifted the tariff debate to emotional levels.
Herr Bebel spoke to breathless galleries.
He often provoked his opponents, but some
times he enthralled even them.
The wagon maker is diminutive in body
and has a large head. Pulling at his
pointed chin whiskers, he took the tribune
after the peasant farmer, Herr Nissen, and
as the representative of 2,S00,000 voters he
lodged the Socialist protest against the
"hunger duties," as he called the tariffs
on grain. The man seemed to grow bodily
as he warmed up to his work. He spoke,
as always, with astonishing ease and rapid
ity of utterance. His tuneful voice Instead
of growing hoarser as the speech was pro
longed on the contrary grew more melo
dious. Herr Bebel said there were two na
tions in the German state the plunderers
and the plundered. "The imperial chan
cellor, Count Von Buelow, spoke for the
former; I am speaking for the latter," he
continued. "Fifteen per cent, of the Ger
man people are engaged in agriculture.
The chancellor said the remaining bo per
cent, were engaged In other occupations
and that 72 per cent, of these latter were
industrialists. The proposition of the gov
ernment was to lay a tax of between OuO,
Ooö.OOO and 700,000.000 marks on food in order
to make more prolitable the occupation of
15 per cent, f the people. Only one-ninth
of the grain is imported.
"Agriculture in Germany might be called
prosperous. The late Dr. Von Aliquel.
former minister of finance, in an official
declaration three years ago said German
agriculture was prosperous. The Prussian
ciown knows it Is prosperous because it is
now Investing 3,0u0,w0 marks in new agri
cultural holdings. The reduction of farm
mortgage foreclosures of recent years
showed that agriculture was better off
than previously and the value of lands has
increased during the last century.
"This bill is intended, not for the better
ment of the larm laborer, but for the bet
terment of the landlords. If any handlord
is not getting on well now, it is because of
large hunting parties, gambling, well-iilled
wine cellars, some in crack cavalry regi
ments and town housea in Berlin."
At this point of Herr Bebel's speech Graf
Von Kardorff, one of the greatest land
magnates, laughed jeerlngly.
"Yes," continued Herr Bebel. "That is the
way with you fellows. You lay taxes upon
the poor and when it is proven to you that
they are unnecessary, you laugh. But the
world's history rolls on over you rcgard-
Later Graf Von Arnim, another great
