BERLIN, Marchl.--Leadersof the national
liberal and freisinnige parties are exchang
ing confidences with a view to conperted
action against the emperor's absolutism.
Leaders of the freibinnige rarty want to
challenge openly the pretensions of the
emperor by raising debate in regard to
pending press prosecutions. The national
liberals, however, more cautionuly advocate
the policy of obstruction in consideration
of the estimates. If the advice of Prof.
Delbrnck is followed the proposed coalition
can form an alliance with the free eon
servatives, and this ought to be sufficiently
strong to cause the government to succumb
and the emperor to adopt anew line of
policy. But nobody expects this fortunate
issue. The press prosecutions are under
taken in accordance with the emperor's
express instructions. Those who seek to
apologize for his majesty, assert that the
prosecutions were initiated in consequence
of the course adopted by the public prose
cutor, but it is a well known fact that the
emperor has been greatly enraged by creas
comments on his Brandenburg speech, and
is determined to test the generally
recognized rights which hitherto have
protected the press from prosecution. The
portion of the speech in which he advises
the discontented to shake the dust of Ger
many from their feet, is becoming as
familiar as a proverb. It is asked at whom
he aimed as "slippered grumblers." It
certainly could not have been the socialists,
nor the progressists. It is surmised that
the phrase had reference to the national
liberals, perhaps to Bismarck and Von Ben
nigen, leader of the national liberals, and
Dr. Miguel, finance minister. Another sur
miss is that the emperor simply hit the
phrase in a moment of vinous exhilaration.
His majesty drinks less than most wine
drinkers, and can stand less. After two
glasses of champagne he becomes talka-
tive, and after three is indiscreet and
pugnacious. His after-dinner speeches
usually require editing, but the Branden
burg utterances were published without be
ing edited. These prosecutions of the
press imply that the emperor has decided
abide by his recent declarations, which are
offensive to most educated Germans.
The revival of the brandy monopoly
scheme, on which Bismarck's government
was defeated in 1886. means that Emperor
William and Chancellor von Caprivi are
dauntless in the face of existing difficulties,
and will deliberately raise more. To sum up,
Germany is on the verge of an internal
turmoil which may afford external enemies
of the monarchy the long hoped for chance
of attack.
The reichstag has passed a credit for the
suppression of the slave trade in East
Africa. The bundesrath has approved the
copyright treaty with the- United States.
According to newspaper reports, Bismarck
recently said he would appear in the upper
house shortly, but remain a silent listener
to debate on the education bill, watching
the parties meet the fate of fighting cats, of
which there were left only tails.
The doubtful announcement is made by
the semi-official plees that the police have
discovered a number of red flags intended
for use in the proposed demonstration on
the 8th, to celebrate the revolution of 1848.
The police are being reinforced. socialist
leaders assert that the story is a fiction, aitd
the anarchists ale looked upon as lacking
power to make an important manifestation.
Arrests continue daily as a result of the re
cent riots. Plundering has been traced to
the rough element.
Mr. Belfirth, of the United States depart
ment of labor, after visiting the schools of
England, France and Germany, will return

technical schools of Boston and Princeton,
and a number of other American institu
tions of similar nature, compare favorably
with anything of the kihd he has seen dur-
inl his tour of Europe.

SAN FaOrNisco, March 5.-The steamshib
City of Pekin arrived this afternoon.
Goo. M. Robinson, a well known wealthy
resident of Yokohama, was shot and killed
Feb. 13 by Lieut. J. H..Hetherington. of
the U. H. steamship Meriamr. The liseten
ant, it is said, was jealous of Robinson's
attention to Mrs. Hetherington. He is
confineed aboard the Meriam.
Robinson, the young man killed by
Hetherington, was a young banker. He
was born in Yokohama and educated in
England. He was very handsome, moved
in the best society, and being a well-known
man about town was extremely popular.
Some time ago he began paying attentions
to Mrs. Hetherington and was so devoted
that their intimacy became the gossip of
the town. Hetherington told Itobinson that
he must refrain from seeing Mrs. Hether-
ington, and that lie had better leave town.
Robinson prosrised to obey, and went away.
In two weeks he retulned and became
more devoted than ever to Mrs. Hethering
ton. On the evehing of Feb. 13 Robinson,
with a friend name:l Pars, wis out driving,
when some one on the road called out for
him to stop. Itobinson pulled rio. when
immediately two shots were fired from a
pistol. The first one missed, but the see
onu took effect in Riobinson's groin and he
fell out of the b)gay. Parsalso jumped out
and seized H-letherington, who had none the
shooting. He soon released the naval of
ficer, who walked away, followed by Robin
son's native servant, who pointed the
shooter out to the police. Hetherington
was arrested and placed in jail. Robinson
died soon after the shooting. On account
of the prominenca of both men and Rob
inson's great popularity, the affair created a
great sensation in the colony, and public
sympathy is largely with IRobinson. Pas
sengers from Yokohama who arrived on the
steailer to-day state that it was common
report that Robinson had been unduly in
tomato with Mrs. Hetherington.
Infanticide Confessed.
CINCINNATI, March 5.-James Dubois and
a woman said to be his wife were arrested
here to-day for infanticide. Three weeks
ago they took rooms in a boardinu house in
this city and last Sunday the woman gave
birth to a male child. Wednesday Dubois
announced that he intended to take the
child to a neice living near Hamilton. The
landlady and another woman wrapped it
up and placed it in a basked. He returned
that evening without it. The body of an
infant was found in the river next morning
near Cleves. The woman who dressed the
child for Dubois examined the body and
clothing and fully identified it. The man
this afternoon broke down and confessed
to the police that he had thrown the babe
into the river because he was not able to
support it. It appears that his real name
is William A. Boyce, of Portland, Ind., and
his wife is said to be a daughter of F. G.
Settle, of Muncie, Ind.
Killed by a Constable.
Borer, Ida.. March 5.-At Oreana, this
afternoon, Samuel J. Pritchard. deputy
United States marshal and chairman of the
state republican central committee, was
killed by Constable Fleming.
Pritchard had Q dispute with a man at
Oreana and slappe thie man's face. The
latter swore out a warrant for Pritchard's
arrest and the paper was piaced in Flein
ina's hands for service. He found
Pritchard in a store, and told
him to throw up his hands.
Pritchard said Ihe wouldn't. The con
stable then fired three shots, instantly kill
ing Pritchar.l, who was unarmed. The lat
ter leaves a wife and one child. P]ritchaird
was a quiet man of about ,10 years of
age, and was extremely peculiar. Public
sentiment against Constable Fleming is
very bitter.

The Sway of the Appropriation
Committee Broken by
the House.
Mr. Hatch's Committee on Agri
culture an Active Agent
in the Result.

WAsroIN.roro , March 5,--The magic power
of Chairman olohan, of the appropria
tions committee, was broken in the house
to-day for the first time this session and all
barriers and traditions surrounding that
cormrnittee went down under the impetuous
sway of the committee on agriculture. It
f was the old conflict of prerogatives, the
precedents of the committee on agriculture
against the committee on appropriations.
And Chairman Hatch and colleagues car
ried the day. The effect of this is far
a reaching and may break entirely the force
of the appropriation committee's assump
,tion to scrutinize and revise all appropria
tions to be passed upon by this congress.
The bill over which the struggle occurred
was one called up by Chairman Hatch ap
propriating, as a deficiency, $150,000 for
experiments in sugar production. Holman
immediately objected On the ground that
the bill came properly under the
jurisdiction of his committee. He further
objected that the agricultural committee had
not properly investigated the question of the
appropriation and propounded several in
i quiries. Hatch deoline.l to be catechised
I and in the course of a sharp speech said it
was none of the gentleman's business. It
was the business of the committee on agri
Sultate, which had thoroughly investigated
the matter. 'ime and again he had seen
the gentleman from Indiana take a consti
tutional knife and pare appropriations so
they could not be seen under a microscope,
but when his own state was interested he
opened the doose wider than necessary to
let the capitol building through. Laugh
ter.] One of the first speeches he ever
heard the gentleman make was in favor of a
bill to build a turnpike road in Indiana.
Where the gentleman got constitutional
authority to build a turnpike road in In
diana he never could see. The bill was
then passed.
A letter from the acting secretary of the
treasury was received and filed this morn
ing, stating that $500,000 would be required
during the fiscal year ending June 30, 18938,
for the purpose of collecting and preparing
+ the government exhibit for the World's
Columbian expqsition. A resolution was
adoyted directing the committee on private
land claims to make inquiry into the Max
well land grant in New Mexico. A joint
resolution was reported from the committee
changing the dates of the beginning and
ending of the terms of congressmen, clang
inc the time on which the annual session of
congress shall begin, and the date of the
commencement of the term of preeident
and vice-president.
The urgent deficiency bill was passed
without amendment. 'The bill appro
priating, as deficiencr. $150,000 for carrying
on the work of the bureau of animal indus
try, and $10,000 for experiments in tha pro.
duction of sugar was taken up. After the bill
was disposed of, as noted above, the house
went into committee of the whole on the
invalid pension bill, and discussion of a
political nature followed. When the pas
sage of the bill was in order, a dispute arose
over a minor amendment, and Bailey (Tex.)
made the point of no quorum. He did
this. he said, to call the attention of the
country to the fact that inemibers did not
attend the sessions in sufficient number to
transact business.
Will These Vexatious Bering Sea Negotla
liouns Never Colno to End ?
WAIIINo'rON, March 5.--The Bering sea
matter has assumed a most serious phase
and the public officials make no attempt to
disguise their grave concel n at the outcome.
It was developed to-day that Lord Salis
bury's ptonasition with regard to the pros
rnt season is not only to open Bering sea
outside the thirty-mile zone from the
Pribyloff islands to indiscriminate sealing,
but to limit tie catch within that belt, in- i
cluding, of course, the shor es of the islands,
to 1:),000 seals. In the languaige of a prolmii
neat, otlicial "this proposition is wholly
unfair., arrorinnt, antid even insulting to this
countryitl." It is contended by cxpeots that
the opening of tiering sea for one season i I
tlhe llllnner suggested would result in the(
o;peedy exterminatit i of thile seal species,

A Break In the Machinery Causes a Sus
pension of Work.
BUTTE. March 5.-[Speciall-The Anai
conda mine was closed down at noon to
day, on account of the breaking of the
twelve-inch shaft of the hoisting engine.
At 9:30 this morning Engineer Si Hawley
allowed the cage to drop on the chdirs.
Work was continued with one cage in one
compartment of the shaft, while a new cage
was being put in position to take the place
of the one damaged by the fall on the
chairs. At this time nothing was noticed
of the damage to the reel shaft and work
was carried on until noon. When the en
gineer went to oil up at the diliner hour he
discovered the break, between the reel and
the bearing of the hoist. After calling the
attention of the chief engineer to it, the
latter decided it unsafe to continue work,
and a shut-down was ordered. It will be
necessary to send to Philadelphia for a
new shaft, and this will require four and
possibly six weeks. There were 440 men
employed in the Anaconda mine and all
have be:in laid off. An old engine is being
rigged up and it is expected to he able to
partially resume in a day or two, perhaps
200 men being employed. The other nmines
of the Anaconda company will be run to
their full capacity and will be fully able,
meanwhile, to supply the smelters at Ana

SThe BIg Fellow Challenges the
I Whole White Earth for One
Great Match.
Slavin Has the Call, Mitchell Is
Second Choice, and Corbett
Comes Next.
They Are Iaminasatlc Sjprintnrs, In tire Lan
gan:ge of ,John l ,.-To Keep the
TiS. I'lrr,, March 5.-John L. Sullivan to
day issued a challenge to fight anybody the
R last week in AUnust or the first week in
September of this venr at the Olympic
club, Now Orleans, for a purse of $25.000
and an outside bet of $10,000. T'he winner
of the fight .is to take the entire purse.
Mullivan a'ldresses the challenge particu
larly to Slavin, Mitchell and Corbett. 1oe
a states, however, he will not fight a negro.
The fight must be governed by marquis of
Q1ueensbury rules. Sullivan say.; that ever
since the existence of his two-Oeason
theatrical contract was mlade known this
a countiy has been overrun with a lot of
h foreign fighters and also American aspirants
n for fistic fame, who haveosought notoriety
and dollars by issuing challenges when
they knew his hands were tied. His turn
has now come and he challenges any "and
all bluffers who have boon trying to make
capital at my expense." He insists on an
a outside Let to show that they mean busi
ness. Col. Cockerill, editor of the Adver
* tiser, of New York, is to be stakeholder.
t "' give preference," says Sullivan, "to
1 Slavin, of Australia, as he and his backers
have done the greatest amount of blowing.
t My second preference is the bombastic
sprinter, Charlos Mitchell, of England,
whom I would rather whip than any man
in the world. My third preference is
o James Corbett, of California, who has also
achieved hig share of bombast. But I in
s elude all fighters; first come, first oerved,
d who are white. I will not fight a negro; 1
never have, I never shall. I prefer that
s this challenge should be accepted by some
of the foreigners who have been sprinting
so hard after American dollars of late, as I
would rather whip them than any of my
own countrymen. Marquis of Queensbury
rules must govern this contest, as I want
fighting, not foot racing, anti I intend to
keep the championship of the world where
- it belongs, in the land of the free and the
home of the brave."
e Mitchell Will Fight in a Field for Less
y FT. 'Loue, March 5.-Charlie Mitchell
t. said to-night, referring to Sullivan's chal
e lenge, that he would be delighted if a match
e could be made between them. As to the
e $10,000 bet on the outside, he said Sullivan
o must be crazy. He (Mitchell) would wager
d $2,500 even money on the result. Mitchell
t says there is only one way a champion prize
fight can be fought, and that is under Lon
e don prize-ring rules. "Sullivan says,"
added Mitchell, "that he doesn't care
I about the championship. Neither do I, but
if he wants to fight for a purse and less
than $2.,500 as a side bet, I will fight for $5
a side, prize-ring rules. i'll fight him
Queensberry rules at New Orleans and put
up a side bet six weeks rrevious. I'll make
all those concession-, and even fieht in a
sixteen-toot ring if he'll pay rte for thI
a privileges. If Sullivan really wants a fight
I he knows I'm willing toi, iet him at ehlori
notice. I'm willing to fight Queensberry
or prize-ring rules any time in -eptemb -.
October or November, when the woather in
i New Orleans is cool."
Sa laiin talked very freely, saying: "Sul
) livan knows he is safe in challenging me,
because L'm to tight Peter Jackson in Lon
don. May 30. If I win that fight I'll return
to America and challenge Sullivan."
tMather Attempts Suicide.
N.AsHvrrL, March 5.--'he American's
special from Charlotte, N. C., says: "Peter
Maher endeavored to commit suicide to
day by leaping from the window of a car
irnear here to-day. `The train wag running
1 forty miles an hour. Maiher made ai wild
'lean for an open window, lbu was caught
and pulled back, live men being necessary
to do it. It is stated that he has been on a
crazy drunk ever since his New Orleans de
Itet, and, in a lit of temporary insanity or
utter recklessness, niade a wild dash for
death. lion abooii the trand had a hard
tiunme to keep him quiet. One of the men
who pulled Maher back was Fitzsimmoos,
his recent victor.
AWill Not Fight Choynstll.

match for him with Choynaki, and that he
will not ftight him, hnving already bested
