Approaches a Craze-Even Obscure

[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
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

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.

W. A. Haven, the engineer in charge of

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

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.
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
"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

I will be in the ring, this to be forfeited to

odds, perhaps four or three to one. How
ever, I hereby declare that I will have $10,

prevailing odds. If marked even, my $10,

I will be in New York the week of March

and tlavin stated that should Sullivan
agree to fight in England, they would put
up a wager of £5,000.

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."

t Later Reports Confirm the: Horrible
Details of the Belgian Mine
1 The Total Number of Victims Is
it Known to Be More
Than 200.
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.
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
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.
