ThoTiirltTQitoHllon IiOomlnRUn asaDan corous Ihsho in Gorman Politics Strength or tho Parties in tho Reichstag A "Warning to Russia. Copyright by New York Associated Press.! Beulin, April 12. Immediately upon his re turn from Wiesbaden Emperor William will hold a scries of prolonged conferences with the heads of thu various departments. It is re ported to bo the determination of tho Emperor to cxcrci6c a rigid personal scrutiny over every measure. Besides overloading himself with work he in tho mean time threatens to paralyze ministerial work. None of tho bills based on the decisions of the Labor Conference and pre pared by Baron Von Berlcpsch havo yet re ceived the final imperial sanction. The assent of the Bundesrath to the measures is doubtful. The federal governments do not share tho Em peror's eager haste for reforms. Beyond the pregnant fact that the Reichstag will bo asked to grant a military credit of prob ably 800,000,000 marks, nothing is known of the government's programme. The Progressist press Indulges In visions of a change in the tariff policy, a reduction of the duties on cereals and on articles absolutely necessary for the use of the people. It is not believed that the Emperor will entangle himself In the diffi culties entailed by a revision of the tariffs, which would involve 'complete reforms In the whole financial and fiscal system of the.Empire. Neither tho Reichstag nor the Bundesrath will ever assent to an extension of, the imperial powers toward absolutism. Already the lead ing federal princes of the empire, incredulous of the Emperor's capacity and scared by his methods of governing, are tryiugto tone down his self-confidence. The governments of Bava ria, WUrtemburg, and Saxony, which hold fourteen votes in the Bundesrath, will not co operate in Imperial measures unless the Em peror consults them more on the general lines of his policy. The Reichstag will meet with the various parties undetermined awaiting the effect of the government programme before grouping themselves. The official record of the com position of the Reichstag, after the second bal lots, is as follows: Conservatives, 72; Imper ialists, 19; National Liberals, 43; Freisinnige, 07: Centrists. 107: Socialists. 35: "Volks Partie. 10; Poles, 10; Guclphs, 11;.

The announcement agrees with the opinion held in official circles that the. Emperor will abide by a strong foreign policy. The I'csthcr Lloyd in an official communication alluding to the concen tration of 150,000 Russian troops on the Austrian frontier, Bays UVrejoices In the formal renewal of the triple alliance and warns Russia that the allied powers will not much longer submit to continued provocation.

As Is usually the case when prices aro booming at that rate, very little was sold, but there was tremendous excitement and tho pit was crowded with tho traders and spectators.

As no regular pork can bo made until October, tho clique has control of all tho months up to that time. Subsequently July pork was offered at 12.55, and It looked as though some big shorts had run In, for the offerings wero numerous and there wero no bids. It was said that ono house called mar gins for $500,000 on provisions. A good many of tho boaid, however, attributed Cue squeeze to Armour. They say that tho Sawyer-Wallace clique transferred the deal to him when they found they wero unable to carry it through and that hlsis now the master hand.
