The Emperor's Intolerance of Criticism Approaches a Craze-Even Obscure Papers Prosecuted. [Conyright. 1892. New York Assoclated Press.1 BEarNI, March 12.--The bitter weather of the past three days Las retarded the em peror's recovery. For a time yesterday a p:erect American blizzard prevailed. Traf fioon the streets was impeded for hours and business pr.ralyzed. The Rteichsnn .eiger this evening publishes a communiea tion to the Russian ministry, announcing that the time has arrived to annul the se questration of the property of the late King George, of Hanover. In a letter dated Thursday the duke of Cumberland requests the emper to ,ive his gracious considera tion to the execution of ia treaty dealing with the-property of the late king. The letter concludes: "I am pleased to avail myself o2 the opportunity of once more de claring that it is far from my intention to engago in any enterprise calculated to dis turb or in any way menace the peace of the German empire, or states belonging thereto. I would never, with the resources at my disposal, knowingly originate or approve any hostile enterprise instigated or pro moted, directly or indirectly, against your majesty or Prussia." The tone of the duke's surrender is a surprise to adherents and opponents alike. Some adequate declaration was demanded from him by the government, but nothing more was ex pected than the recognition of the German empire, with a promise of friendly neutral ity. Friends of the duke affirm that Queen Victoria and the prince of Wales induced the members of the Danish royal family to join them in bringing pressure on the duke to obtain his consent to the emperor's ar ranuement of the duchy and Guelph fund. Improved relations between the emperor and ruling families of Russia and Denmark ere'expected to result. Although a reconciliation has only been definitely effected within the last few days, report that the emperor is already making arrangements to meet the-duke of Cumber land and czar at Copenhagen during the early summer. A bulletin issued to-night says the condi tion of the grand duke of Hesse is hope less. A meeting of 2,500 unemployed people was held in the Tivoli gardens to-day. There was no disturbance. The split pamong socialists, which assists the authori ties in distinguishigi the 'dangerous anarchist section from the moderate anarch ist section. is increasing in number. Fif teen hundred members of this section held a meeting, at which they denounced moder ates as official socialists and traitors to the proletariat. Vorweerts, as the organ of the socialist members of the reichatag, was declared no longer the mouth-piece of work ingmen. Finally a resolution was approved affirming that atheism is recognized by the party, an action which means revolution is the method to achieve its aims. The Vorwaerts, replying to this section, drew a distinction betweep the working proletariat and the lumpen or canaillb proletariat, the former vindicating socialism by parliamentary methods, the latter disgracing the cause of workers by riot. The Vorweerts does not admit that the anarchists are making any headway, but impartial outsiders note the rapid growth of extremists' numbers, as well as the violence of their utterances. Extrem ists Anerbach and Blester are on trial on the charge of inciting civil war. During the course of the day Biester referred to the emperor's speech, adding that if he were condemned for inciting civil war the emperor ought to be also condemned. The court at once stopped the case and ordered the arrest of Biester on the further charge of less majeste. Herr Zubeil, an officer of the Berlin municipal government, express ing himself freely on the emperor's utter ances, was also arrested. The crop of press prosecutions grows daily. Even obscure papers published in Leipsic, Mulhausen and Hanover do not escape the vigilance of the public p:ose cuter. A Munich paper announced the issue of a cartoon on the carnival proces sion, in which a group presented a pictorial burlesque of the emperor's Brandenburg advice to the malcontents to emigrate. The emperor wanted the issue of the car toon stopped by government authorities. His majesty's intolerance of criticism ap proaches a craze. United States Minister Phelps has re turned from Egypt. His health is much improved by the vacation. Concerning the compromise on the pri mary education bill, the government oilffer simply amounts to the inclusion of several sections omitted from the original measure. The national liberals will not assernt to any compromise short of the recognition of re ligious liberty. HOME OF THE BLIZZARD. Seems to Ilo in All Countries IExcept Montana.

Re sistance being useless, the deputies sur rendered the prisone-, who, after the ron. was around his neck, being asked if he had anything to say, replied: "Nothing, except I'm guiltr." In the next minute the tramp was dangling at the end of a rope, dead, It has been learned that beforeleav ing the jail the prisoner confessed to the sheriff that his name was L. Gordon, age 22, and that he had ielietives living in In dependence, Mo. Mrs, Perrepon is not ex pected to live.

Hlaven Tells of the Work Being Done by the Two Parties. W. A. Haven, the engineer in charge of the survey for the Helena, White Sulphur Springs & Castle railroad, returned yester day from the Belt mountain country. 1le says he now has two parties tit work look ing for the most feasible route over the Belt mountain range. They are working on the crest of the mountain and examin ing evwry pass that can be found. So far they have covered about fifteen miles. Gen. Haven says the weather there is very pleasant, aned that but little trouble is occa sioned by the snow. save in the dleep gulches. The farmers all over that conntrv are ploughing and seeding; stock of all kinds is inll ood condition and the resi dents believe they will have a prosperous year. Gen. Haven found at his oflico on his return three or four letters. in which the information was given that the writers knew of nasses through the Belt range where a railroad could go through on ia dead level by a short tunnel. The chief enugi neer appreciates the spirit that prolmpits these suggestioce, but at the same time he believes more fully in an enginieer's report than on that of ia hunter. It is just tihese dead-level passes the two cops inow out are lookinin for, and if therOe are any they will find them. A Mlil for Gireat Falls.

Lh GORY SCHAPAT MISSOULA Faces of Both Bruisers Knocked Shapeless and the Floor Slip pery With Blood, Matt. Casey and Lawrence Turner Were the Combatants, the Latter Winning. Jack Fallon Holds Forth on the Recent Maher-Fitzslmmons Mill at the Crescent City. MIssorULA, March 12.-R[pecial.]--'The longest and best fought prize fight ever made in Missoula came off at the Mascot theater this evening between Matt. Casey and Lawrence Turner, the Sailor Kid. Casey went into the ring weighing 1,i3 spoupds and the Kid 132. 1i: C. Blrown was chosen referee and Hank Harris end It. Rogers timekeepers. The Kid won the fight in the twenty-first round. iHe forced the fighting from stuart to finish, and com menced by playing on Casey's mouth, and 'Casey ,attempted upper-cutting, but his blows were generally short. First blood was given to the Kid in the third round. In the fourth round Casey's upoer-outs commenced to show on the Kid, but apparently Casey could be wound up in one or two rounds more. Casey, however, ral lied in the fifth round and showed wonder ful endurance and pluck, and in the fifth round commenced to get his second wind. The Kid's face soon showed as much effect from Casey's blows as Casey's did from his. From the sixth to the twentieth it was any body's fight, and there was not a round without heavy fighting. The men's faces wele knocked out of shape, and the floor of the stage was covered with blood. The Kid avoided punishment by ducking and clinching, and the referee ias com pelled to caution Casey several times not to foul. A great deal of the fighting was cone in Casey's . corner. From the sixteenth round the Kid's eyes commenced to look bad and swollen and Casey several times showed signs of being groggv, but each time rallied. In the twenty-first round he was knocked down three times but got up each time. After the fourth knock down in the round he was unable to come to time, though gamely trying to do so, and the fight was given to the Kid. Both men were badly punished and remarkably game. WHICH WOULD QUIT FIRST. Fitzsimmons and Maher Both Had Enough -That Furious First. New Yogx, March 12.-Jack Fallon, the "Brooklyn Strong Boy," of whom Billy Madden says that there is no more con asPig.q ns or capaltle trainer, entertained a dozen persons with his experiences with Peter Maher. His telling of incidents con nected with the Irish champion caused everybody to listen with great interest. "To my mind," Fallon began, "it was a question of who would quit first. 1 learned after the fight was over that when Fitz went back to his corner after the first round he said to Jimmmy Carroll, 'That man hits too hard for me.' Alex. Greggains told him he was a cur, and followed that remark up with this: 'Go on and fight, dash you, or you'll be put down as no good.' Fitz then braced up, although he was as good as out after the first round, and went in on the after the first round, and went in on thi jabbing plan that won the fight for him But there is no doubt that Fitzsimmon wanted to quit after that punch that Mahe gave him on the temple in the first round "Fitz's seconds bad to almost fo.ce hin out in each round up to the sixth, and wt had to push Maher from his chair. It wai a funny play all around, but Madden hat it right. Madden said to me after thi second round: 'this man won't do as I say and he's licked.' If the Irishman had only followed orders, and gone at Fitzsimmons in the second round, he 'would have woI sure." "What took place between Maher anc Madden at the conclusion of the twelftI round?" was asked. "Well," says Fallon. "Peter came to hi, corner and said lie was going to quit. 'Wait a second before you do that,' says Madden. 'Think of Tony Sage, your greal friend, who sent you over: think of Ireland, which you represert as a champion; think of all the money that our friends have bet on you. Don't do anything foolish. Better go in and get licked."' "'It's no use,' Maher replied, 'I can't get near him,' and he quit. "I had to laugh," continued Fallon, 'when I saw Maher slain Fitzsimmone against the ropes and then go out to the middle of the ring and spar wind. lie held up his hands right in the center and made passes that were only imtiginary, so far as an opyoneIt was concerned, and it was ridiculous. If he had only gone at Fitz, in stead of attempting to do the looking glass not, he might have got in a left-hand swing that would have done the business. .lut., there he stood, far out from the ropei, with Fitz simmllons weak and almost senseless on the string of cord. and without sense enough to foljow up his advantage. I yelled to him to go in, that now weas his time, but the fool didn't have his head. Hlo kept away, and lost the opportunity of nmaking a for tune. As for ime, I cameo near getting tiuown out of the building. The captain of police punched me on the shoulder and itforimed uie they didn't allow any shout ing in the house. 'If you do it again,' he said, 'you'll have to go out'. "Mahor is it good mnan, however," Fallon went on. "He acted like a fool this timle, but lie said to me on the way home that he would follow instructions atter this. If he ctln be made to do thht, you will hoar from him yet. Hle is ia tremendous hitter, and the ntan he lands on--no mautter if it is John L. Sullivan-will know that he has been strutlck." lohuny K(eatingi the former feather weight chlamlpion, was asked what hie thought of the "stage fright" excuse that Madden hits put up on bheltl of of Maher. 11e said: "1 can easily understand it. 'That there is such a thinig with lighters I know. It is tone enough to say that a lighter goes ill to elniash, punoch, and all tilat, but there is iore behind it. A man ligillttig for the firht time bufore a great assembtage, where thlre are electrio lights :and a glamour of teocitetlunt, is apt to get in ttled. I shallI never forget my irat ettxperience oeforo a li:re crowd. I sparred Nobbv (ilark in 'Piladelmphia. The house was so full, mndtl lith surroundings weoe so impressive that L ioreot boxing, and wasn't inl It. After I hal gatined some exlperience, however, I could do as well itas any mau ton the stage." Wtill Wai.t foar tlOt. 'I'ToNrro, Ont., March 12.--The following was published in to-day's World: "Spot ingt editor of the World--I will stick to my ariginal declaration. I will light for the Ilymlpio club's $215,000 pusio and a $2,1500 tido but. Will also post another $2,ikl.that I will be in the ring, this to be forfeited to Sullivan if I am not there. The reason i have refused all along to accept the $10,t000 side bet, was, I will likely secure better odds, perhaps four or three to one. How ever, I hereby declare that I will have $10, 000 at the ring side to wager at the then prevailing odds. If marked even, my $10, 000 will be ready to go up against Bullivan's $10,000. I do not want a jrenny if I anm defeated. I will be in New York the week of March 21., ready to meet Sullivan or his repre sentatlies. If the Boston man wants to show that he has not been engaged all along in a big bluff, he or his representa tives must then meet to arrange for a match. Charles Mitchell." Both Mitchell and tlavin stated that should Sullivan agree to fight in England, they would put up a wager of £5,000. For Advertising Puarposes. New YORK, March 12.--Sullivan's backer, Jimmy Wakely, after reading the letter in the Toronto World, smiled, remarking that he paid no more attention to Mitchell's statements than he would those of a boot black. He is simply advertising his combi nation, and will not fight." NAI'OLEON BONAPA i.TE. J1. A. A. MacKulglt Fixes the ate for His Lee¢tu re. The Commercial club of this city has ex tended a formal invitation to J. A. Mac Knight, formerly managing editor of the Helena Journal, to give his lecture on Napoleon Bfonaparte under the aunspices of the club. The invitation is dated March 2, is addressed to Mr. MacKnight and is as follows: Dear sir: The Commercial club will be pleased to have you deliver your lecture on "Napoleon Bonaparte" at as early a date as will be convenient to yourself, the lecture to take place under the auspices of the club, at Ming's opera house.

The f lecture will be illustrated by upwards of I fifty-five stereopticon views of the islard i of St. Helena, and other olaces connected I with the life of Bonaparte, and by special I request of friends I will exhibit on the stage a table and chair that wore used by the illustrious exile in prison at Longwood. These relics I acquired while United States I consul at the island. They were about the a agt, of the hNa·al~nc,,:^,.a,.- _ rl ...... rock where his body lay buried for twenty years. Thanking the Commercial club for its courtesy, I remain, gentlemen, very truly yours, JAS. A. MACKNTIGHT. There is little question but -the lecture will draw as good a hou1 in Helena as it has in the east. It is replete with incidents from the life of the great Corsican, gath ered by Mr. MacKnight while consul at St. Helena. It will also give Mr. MacKnight', many friends the opportunity to show theil appreciation of his work for Helena. JHOME'FOR ORPHANS. An Appeal for One That Is to lie IBuilt This Sumnmer at Helena. On the 7th day of February the erection of a Catholic Orphan Home was announced to the public. Land had been donated to the Sisters of Charity at Helena, one mile north of the Northern Pacific depot for that purpose, and the sisters, having ac cepted the gift, proceeded to collect sub scriptions for the building. Thus far they have met with generous responle. The buildings will be erected this summer. The sisters now have forty orphans fromn dif ferent places of Montana and with in creased facilities they plan to receive all orphans who may stand in need of assist ance. These sisters, who came out to Mon tana as early as 1869, need no words to tell the public that their charity is universal, and that all, no matter what their creed or nationality, will find a home with them for orphans. An appeal is hereby made to all in favor of that grand charity. 7T'he ladies, who have given their life services to become mothers to motherless children, stretch out their hands for alms and beg the charitably disposed to help them in the great work they have undertaken. If a United effort is made it is hoped that before winter un other grand monument of charity will adorn our beautiful mountain home, ready to receive with affection and tenser care the children of the unfortunate. Contrib utors should address Sister Josephine, Helena, Mont. Montana papers arc re quested to copy the above. HIouse of the Good Shepherd.

Most of These Met Death by Fire-Otherl 1t Suffocated by Noxious Gases- The Flames Itaging. Enrsswet.s, March 12.-There has been little abatement in the excitement about Charleroi, near which place the appalling is explosion occurred in the Anderlue colliery yesterday. The fire is still burning in the lower gallery. Debris and the carcasqes of forty horses block the approach to the gal e lery where the bodies are known to be. It n has been ascertained that 270 persons were f working in the mine at the time of the ex ;, plosion. Most of them were at work in the a two galleries where the greatest damage was done. Mining experts say that prob. e ably every person working in the lower gal n lery must be dead, and few are expected to a be rescued from the upper gallery, which is e filled with deadly gases. S 'Ihirty bodies have been recovered. The r fact that many women and children em u ployed in the mine met death by the exnlo e sion will afford an almost unanswerable . argument for those opposed to female labor in undeorround employment. The crowds increased as the day wore on. The rescuers came to the surface a few at a time, bearing ione or two mangled forms. The scenes usually incident to such a disaster are re enacted with, if possible, more than the usual intensity. The work of the rescuers is greatly retarded by the noxious gases f still remaining in the mine. Thereis hardly ea shadow of hope that any of the men who were in the mine at the time of the explo sion are now alive. I The fire in the mine grows fiercer and fiercer. Since two o'clock this morning the heat has been so intense that it is impossi I ble for the rescuing parties to remain in the I pit. They have been compelled, for the 1 present, to abandon all efforts to reach the a galleries. There is not the slightest doubt Sbut that everybody in the mine is dead. At three o'clock the flames burst from the pait's month, and illuminated the country r all around, set fire to the engine house and I adjoining buildings. It has been decided to flood the mine. The total death roll is 215, of whom 170 have been burned alive. Great suffering among the families must result. The government has ordered the distribution of relief. THE STIIKE [NAUGURATED. Thousands or Miners In England Quit rWork-Coat From Belgium. LoNnoN, March 12.-The great oaal miners' strike was inaugurated to-day. At two this afternoon the men employed in the mines at Lancashire, Cheshire and t Yorkshire stopped work. The only men now are the surface men. pumpers, venti i lators, attendants, etc., who were not called I out. In Durham the mines are also com pletely stopped. The number of miners who have quit work at Nottingham is 20,000. The coal stocks in the Bristol dis tricts are nearly exhausted, and as a result of the strike in that district the price of coal has gone up four shillings a ton. Bel gian shippers are sending coal and Thames colliers, carrying these consignments, are expected to arrive Monday. The coal porters will attempt to prevent the discha ge of these cargoes and it is feared that this will lead to the renewal of the dock troubles. One of the results of the split, which occurred among the north Wales miners, is that the men working in Flintshire will not go on a strike but will work not more than five days a week. Wooden barricades are being built around the mouths of the various pits in Durham and none of the miners will be allowed in side of these enclosures. It is believed that at a conference to be held Wednesday next by the miners' federation that it will be decided to limit the holiday to a week and to restrict the output during the sum mer. Many large industrial establishments in the vicinity of the collieries banked their fires when the operatives left work. This means that work will not be resumed Mon day, the manufacturers refusing to pay the extraordinary prices now demanded for coal. Delegates from all collieries have de. cided to submit to no reduction in wages. NEW COMPANIES. Four Montanlt lucorporntionsm File Their Articles to Do Business.
