BganLt, Qot. 15.-Not a single journal,
except the government organs, supports the
military bill. It is the general belief that a
cris is impending in the Prussian cabinet
on account of the bill. At a cabinet meet
ing the ministry accepted the bill on condi
tion that the extra expenditure be borne by
the empire and not by Prussia alone. Von
Caprivi's assurances on the point appeared
to be satisfactory. The prospects of the
bill passing the reichetag improved by the
report that the government has decided to
concede to parliament the right to fix an
nually the peace footing of the army.
It is reported that the meeting between
Emperor William and the duke of Cumber
land, for the purpose of discussing the
question of the Brunswick succession, fell
th,ough, owing to the ex-queen of Hanover
.erenading the duke not to attend. Queen
Victoria advises the duke to release his
claim to the throne. The duke is in a

LONDO, Oct. 15.-Andrew Carnegie and
wife passed through this city on route to
the continent, where Carnegie goes to seek
quiet and to work on his new book treating
of the industrial problems of the day. Be
ing interviewed to-day he said he had
worked on the book all spring and summer,
until the deplorable events at Holnatead.
They had such a depressing effect that he
was compelled to lay the book aside and
resort to the loches and moors, fishing from
morning till night. Referring to the bus
iness prospects of England, Carnegie said
the outlook was dark. In conclusion he
said: "Look where you will, there is but
,one truly prosperous country in the world,
and that is the United States. God bless
her, she deserves it."
The Right of Public Meeting.

Trafalgar riot five years ago will reassert
the right to hold a public meeting there by
a monster demonstration Sunday. Nov. 13,

will not interfere. The leaders of the pres
ent demonstration are the old set. Philo
sophic and respectable socialists declare
that if the home secretary prohibits the
meeting they will withdraw. The Work
men's club insists on defying any govern
ment prohibition. The promoters of the
affair are embarrassed by receiving an inti
mation from German and French socialist
clubs, notoriously of anarchistic character,
that they will join their ranks on the occa

time the stricken woman was left lying en
tirely unattended, and it was quite awhile
before she was removed to the hospital.

A Ruling by the Acting Secretary of the
WASHINGTON, Oct. 15.-Acting Secretary
Spaulding instructed the collector of cus

regions known to abound in anthracite coal
and similar to that heretofore admitted to
a free entry, may in the future be classified
as anthracite coal in all cases where the
quantity of fixed carbon contained therein
is not less than 88 per cent. This reduces
the minimum amount of fixed carbon two
per cent and defines the difference for cus
tom purposes between anthracite coal,
which is free, and bituminous which is sub.
jest to a duty of 75 cents per ton.

In the Two Helena Districts It Is
4,242 for the Year
Lewis and Clarke County Will
ShoW a Total of About
In Common With Other Bections of the
State, This Is a HIl Increase
Over 1890.
Yesterday was the last day of registIra
tion, and the total in the two Helena dis
tri's, 4,242, is a sufficient refutation of the
oe~ree made by the papers of Great Falls
and Butte especially that Helena is falling
of In population. In 1800 the total regils
tration in these two districts was 8,804,
showing an increase of 488, or 12 per cent
this year over two years ago. By districts
the increase was: First 110, second 828.
The registration for the other districts of
the county have not been received as yet.
Thi registration of the whole county two
years ago was 5,085. At the same rate of
increase in 1892 outside the city distriots
as there was in helena this year, the entire
county of Lewis and Clarke should have
nearly 5,700 qualified voters who can go to
the polls on the 8th of November. The
onlside districts of the county, however,
are expected to show even a larger percent
age of increase, and it would not be at all
surprising if Lewis and Clarke county's
registration should go nearer 5,900.
Of the 5,085 votes registered in Lewis and
Clarke county in 1890 there were east 8,88:
votes, showing that about 25 per cent of the
vote was not cast. This is accounted fot
by the fact that many men who were en
gaged on sewer and vailroad work during
the registration, got through with their
work and went elsewhere before election
day. This year, however, no such condi
tions are expected to arise. The men who
are at work in Helena and in the county
outside the city are engaged on works of
more permanent and lasting character.
There is no occasion for them to leave now
or at any time before election day, or, in
fact, for many weeks after the election. As
long as the weather holds good there is no
doubt but that all who are in the county
and city now will have no occasion to
change their place of residence in search of
employment. There are other considera
tions that bespeak a fuller vote this
year than there was in 1890. In
the latter year there was but
one office, congressman, to be voted on out
side those counties which had to elect state
senators. This year many voters, in fact
It large proportion of them, will have the
first opportunity of their lives to cast a
ballot in a presidential election. This, if
noti.jns else, will bring them to the polls,
if they have to go on snow shoes. 'Then
there is the capital question, in which the
voters of Lewis and Clarke county, outside
of Helena, have as vital an interest as the
people of the city have.
From various parts of the state come re
Ports of increased registration over 1890.
The conditions at other place are pretty
much the same as here. The people want
to avail themselves of the opportunity to
take part in the selection of a president.
It is safe to predict that the vote of the
state this year will come within five per
cent of the registration.
Helena for the capital.
Increase in Park County.
LIVINGSTON, Oct. 15.--[Special.]-- There
were 1,005 voters registered in this city up
to the close of registration to-night. This
is an increase of about 220 over the number
registered twoyears ao. Reports from the
various registration offices in the county in
dicate that the number registered will ex
ceed that of any previous year by about
830. 'Ihe registration for Park county will
reach 2,200. The work of registering has
been pushed with vigor by all parties, and
it is possible that nearly every voter in the
county was registered by 10 o'clock to
night. The democrats feel confident that
they will succeed in electing the majority
of the county ticket and that the usual re
publican majority for the state and na
tional ticket will be very materially re
duced. Democrats through the county are
united and are doing very effective work.
The republicans already concede that the
contest will be close.

A Speeeh by SBlane Remarkable for the

I'TTrr.AnarnPrA, Oct. 15. - One of the
largest political meetings of the campaign
was held to-night under the auspices of the
Young Men's Democratic association of
this city, which invited Wayne MaoVeagh,
formelv attorn, y general under Garfield,
to make an address. Mr. MaoVeagh was
introduced by President Thompson, of the
association. MacVbaah said that up to the
present trme he had not felt at liberty
to vote for any but republican
candidates. In 1876 he believed
Tilden entitled to the electoral
vote of Louisiana. But President Grant,
Secretary Chandler, Secretary Cameron,
and Gen. Sheridan were in command of the
troops in the state and Secaetary Robeson,
with gun boats in its wates, deeply inter
ested in the election of United States Mar
shal Packard, seeking the governorship
with a host of deputies at his command,
and yet when the polls closed Tilden had.'
7,000 votes more than Hayes. The speaker
objected to this. He has watched with
pain the steady growth of the corrupt use
of money in politics and he is convinced
that unless the republican party is checked
