Leaders'of Groups Openly and in Private Coming to His Support. The Crisis In the French Ministry Not Passed-Leo Leans to France and Russia. (Copyright Assoclated Press, 1892. New York.1 BIrILIN, Dec. 3.-Events in the reichstag, and party movements which are less seen by the public, all' tend to consolidate Chanoellor von Caprivi's position and as sure the passage of the army bill. Freisin nige and Iismarskiau papers pretend to believe the obancellor's position is unten able. Every day the opposition has pro duced a fresh rumor as to who his suc cessor will be. ''he fact is the chancellor's position has become strength ened by the open adhesion of some party leaders and the private adhesion of others. Dr. Bahl, national liberal, has won the chancellor's thanks by promising that his party will support all military demands peceseary for the safety of the empire. Herr Koscielski, in the name of the Polish group, has announced that they would vote to grant anything as far as the financial depression permitted that would contribute to unite and strengthen Germany. With regard to the centre party, it is no longer a secret that a majprity of the members of the group, resenting the vatican's pro. French policy, are treating clerical at tempts to influence the party to defeat the government's scheme of army re-organiza tion as a hostile intrigue against German unity. So marked is the feeling of many centrists against the interference of the vatican, which is attributed to the pope's hostility to the triple alliance, that certain Itampolla, papal secretary of state, that a revolt of the party against clerical lead is imminent if interference is persisted. The vatican, consequently, assented to leaving the centre party to follow whatever course it Ileases. The emperor's bill against immorality and the emigration measure will be taken up by the reichsetag when discussion of the budget is ended. When scrutinized the restrictive clauses of the proposed emigra tion law do not seem to operate so favora bly as expected in sending a good class of emigrants to America. Well to do, orderly teople, will object to the preliminary po lice supervision and dieocosure of private alfairs demanded under the bill, while criminals, frauds and impoverished persons can go across the frontier and sail from a foreign port without any interference front the police. The mysterious disappearance of Prince Karl, of Bavaria, is now known to be due to a Ihtsion with a pretty ballet girl. The regent orf Baravia disapproved of it. There ut on the prince applied for permission to contract a morganatio marriage with the girl. The regent refused and was making arrangements to sentd the prince off on a journey abroad when Karl and the danseuse left the city. The pair were traced to a secluded retreat in the Alps and brought back to Munich. The Voseische Zoitang, rarerrinl to the alection of Cleveland, urges the German government to take time by the forelock nud negotiate a reciprocity treaty admit , ting American products. such as wheat, cotton, pork, ments and leather into Ger many free of duty, in return for a reduc tion of the American tabiff on German manufactured goods. A HOLE IN TilE I10 rTOOI. Arrival of the Overdne Spree at rQuieens towni-l). WV. Fisk oin Hoard. Livetioort,, Dt c. 3.-A dispatch from Kin e:s',, on the south coast of Ire'and, said that the IBritish stentamr Lake Huron, from Montro.I, passed there this morning, hav ing in tow the No:thGermuan Llord steamer Spre', which sailed from Bremen for New SYork Nov. 22, and which for somen days wUe ove due at its destination. The Spree ar rived at Queenstown this afternoon. A main shaft was broken early on the morn ing of Nov. 2(;. Before the engines could ie stopped the broken shaft pounded out a portion of the stern and a part of the ma chinery went through the bottom under the second cabin, which immediately filled with water. Tihe passengers thought tie vessel was cgoing to the bottom and rushed on deck. For ti lie it veritable panic t re vailed and the oflices were helpless to calml the teo run 'l ilpassetngers. 'toe water could be heard ruhunrz turough the hole in the bottom and inll short time the vessel hogan to settle.

BnRUssur, Dec. 8.--The rejection of the Rothschild plan by the committee of the international monetary conference does not finally dispose of Rothsobhild's proposals. The minority of the committee, who sup ported the plan, are feeling their way to take a vote of the conference on the scheme, with the amendments offered in the committee that no limitations will be made on the price of the proposed annual purchases of 30i,000,000 ounces of silver; that the purchases be over and above the ordinary purchases for the token coinage and metal, and that the purchases will be employed as money either by coinage or as the metallic basis of notes to be issued. These modifications increased the value of the plan in the eyes of the bi-metallists. When the conference resumes its season on Tuesday Mir Wm. Honldsworth, one of' the British delegates, will, it in said, bring forward further amendments to Roths child's proposals, as the committee recom mended the disceussion of the plan with amendments by the full conference. The proceedings of Tuesday's meeting, unless the American delegates decide to ask the conference to proceed without delay, will be a discussion of the question of intern'ational bi-metailism. It has transpired that the delegates of countries belonging to the Latin union voted against RIothschild's proposals on the ground that they are not able to recommend their government to increase their stocks of silver under the limited purchase scheme, and because the countries in the Latin union could not increase the present silver currency without international free coinage being established. With regard to the plan of M. Levi, which includes the withdrawal of all gold coins under the value of twenty francs, Sir C. Fremantle, deputy master of the BIritish mint, do olared that he could not promise the con sent of the British government to the with drawal of its half sovereign pieces. A TEST OF STRENGTH. One Wil lie Made Soon After Parliament Meets. LConyright. 1892. New York Associated Press.1 LoNDON, Dec. 3.-The opening of parlia ment is still eight weeks distant, but the conservative party is already on the scene with three amendments to the address in reply to the speech from the throne. The evident object is to test the strength of the government. A prominent liberal said to dav: "We expect the warmest time any parliament has seen since the discussion of the reform bill in 1832." The ministerial ists, however, continue to be confident of weathering divisions on the address, and even hopeful of passing a home rule bill, Another trouble before the government is the renewed agitation of Irish tenant farm ere for abatement of judicial rents fixed four years ago. Fhe tenants have declared that the fall in the prices of live stock and of rents imperative. A temporary clause of the act of 1887 empowered the land com mission to reduce rents in the ratio of the declino in agricultural prices. The clause was operative for only three years and ex pired at the time when it would have done the most good. The government will ask parliament to restore the clause exactly as it was. Aunouncement of the death of Jay Gould stirred the pulses of dealers both inside and outside the London stock exchange. Al though the news had no notable influence on prices, a mob of people blocked the ap proaches to the exchange. all talking on the same theme and waiting to seeits effect. D . Collingridgo reports to the London port sanitary committee that there is al nost absolute certainty of an outbreak of cholera in the spring, when all precautions now adopted will be far more severely strained. THE FRENCH CRISIS. Thllought to Ile a Very Serious One-No Cabinet Yet. PAis., Dec. 3.-The present crisis is not merely political, but one in which great constitutional questions are at stake. The Panama canal investigation committee shows a disposition to overstep constitu tional rights and the refusal of Public Prosecutor Reauerepnire to give up docu ments to be used in the investiga tion is approved by all who have not lost their heads over the Panama canal affair. Had M. Briseson, as the head of the committee on investigation, been anccessful in forming a cabinet. his success would have been interpreted as an accent ance by the deputies of the committee's illegal policy, the result of which it would have been imposesile to foresee. There is general apprehension that the event has magnified the pretensions of the committee into aiming at establishing itself into a sort of committee of public safety, with desotic powers. News of Perier's failure to form a cabi not was received with general regret. Pres ident Carnot to-night sent for M. Bour geois, and asked him to make an effort to fo.n a ministry. M. Bourgeois' decision haot not yet been announced. If he refuses or fails in the attempt M. Defreycinot and Tirard are next favorites. LEO'O I'URI'OSE FIIRR.

BAfCLES HEARD FROM,. Democrats Put in an Appearance at the Capital and Are Inter viewed. Bland Has No Hope of Beneficial Results From the Brussels Conference. ireekenrldge Thinks That Cleveland Should Frame a Tariff Bill-Palmer For an Extra Session. WARImINGTON, Dec. 3.-teproesentative Blaund, of Missouri, chairman of the coin age committee, was asked by an Associated press reporter what he thought would be the effect of the failure of the international monetary conference to agree on anything. lHe replied: "I don't see that it could have :ny effect one way or the other. I don't think the public generally expect much of it." "I)o you expect anything from the con ference?" "I do not; and [decisivelyJ I never have." "Suppose the conference should fail and a prepositiun should then be made to repeal the Sherman law, what then?" "That will be proposed anyway, I pre sume. I am in favor of repealing it if we cannot get something better for silver. I don't like the Sherman law myself." "Do you think there is any prospect of silver legislation?" "I would not like to express any opinion on that, because I do not know how the members feel. From the way they voted last session there is not much prospect of it." "Aside from free coinage, what plan can you suggest that would improve the fnan cial situation?" "I would go to work and coin all the bul lion which is purchased. It would be a means by which the deficiency in the treas ury could be met." Iepresentative Breckenridae. of Ken tucky, who opposes an extra session, thinks a democratic tariff revision bill should be prepared under the direction of Mr. Cleve 1.lnr, Rrnn.sGrrir]n .uli ho thnnrht 1ae . land should, with the assistance of his cabinet and officials, prepare a tariff bill to be submitted to congress in lien of a mee snee in recommendation. l'he bill, he says, could be considered in the committee on ways and means, and such amendments as agreed on could be adopted in the house and senAte, and a great deal of time and trouble be saved. Senator Palmer, of Illinais, says he far ors an extra session provided the democrats can reach a definite agreement as to exactly what matters should be taken up. The senator put in a good word for State Tress ure' E. 8. Wilson. of Illinois; as secretary of aprlculture in Cleveland's cabinet. PRESIDENT AND SUBORDINATES. Busy With the Annual Message-Reports of Departments. WASHINGTON, Dec. 3,-The presidant spent the entire day in revising the proof slips of his message to congress. He held confer ences with members of the cabinet on top ice in the message relative to the depart ments. The message and documents will be sent to congress Tuesday. Surgeon General Wyman, of the marine hospital service, in his annual report will, it is said, recommend ass meaesureof safety to the country during the Columbian expo sition that immigration be suspended for at least one year from Jan. 1 next. This is based on the prediction of sanitary experts that cholera is almost certain to reappear in Europe next year. It is almost certain that the secretary of the treasury will adopt the proposition as part of his general plan for the national quarantine service. The annual report of Suverintendent White, of the railway mail service, shows for the year ended June 30, last, that the service handled the enormous total of 9,589, 862,5189 pieces of mail matter, an increase of 7.37 per cent over the preceding year. The president has signed the commissions of Justice Harlan and Senator Morgan as arbitrators to the Bering sea commission. and Secretary John W. Foster as agent in behalf of the United States before that commission. These appointments were made June 6. The first meeting of the conference will be held Feb. 23. Circulation of the Country.

IU. W., to I Meet in Hlolenls IDe,,. 14 The supreme lodge of the A. O. U. W. at is session in Detroit, Mich., in 18141, pieced 1 to degree of honor on a snustsntial basis, mid at its session in lielna in June last en arged its sphere of usefulness, so that it now admits to membership all members of bhe A. O. U. W. In good standing, together with wives, mothers, denahters, nistern and widows of workmlen, also sons of menmbers between the ages of 14; and 22. This branch of the order has grown rap idly and it is in a flonrishinu condition in nost of the jurisdlctions where the parent order exists. Grand lodges have been formed in Michigan. Kansas and Nebraska. and the order in Montana is now entitled to have a grand lodge instituted. 'the first subordinate lodge of Degree of Honor in Montana. Mount Helena No. I, was instituted in this uitv in August last. Since which time others have been insti tuted at Great Falls, bheridan, Butte, Walkerville, Mouth Butte, Yhtlipsburg, Granite, Victor, Marysville, East Helena. and another lodge will be formed at Deer Lodge this week. Grand Master Workman James H. Mills has just iesned orders for the election of delegates to assemble in Helena on Wednes day, Dec. 14th, at three o'clock p. ao., for the purpose of organizing the grand lodge, D)egree of Honor A. (. U. W., for Mon tana. Each subordinate lodge will be en titled to five delegates to the convention to form the grand lodge. Mount Helena lodge No. I has appointed a committee consisting of Mrs. Emma )'retz, Mrs. Byrns, Mrs. Pardillian, Mrs. Eckiund, Mrs. Yaeger, Mrs. O'Neil and Miss Morton to whoem Is entrusted the duty of preparing a good reception to the visl tore. The committee has decided to give a grand ball at Electric hall on Wednesday evening, Dec. 14, to which a general invita tion is extended to the dancing society of Holena to participate. On Thursday even ing, the members of Mount Hplena lodge, I). of H., and their visiting friends, will sit down to an elegant banquet to be prepared by the ladies of that lodge. The grand lodge will have been organized by that time, and all look forward to the event with great expectations of oleasure. There is to be a lively struggle for elec tion of delegates from Moans Helena looug, no .ess tuan . wenty laumes aspiring to the five places to be filled, and as the sisters always make lively canvasses when their rights are recognized as equal rar ticipants, the special meeting to be held Monday evening, Dec. 12, for the election bids fair to be a lively one. The special interest in this branch of the A. O. U. W. in Montana is due largely to a desire on the part of the ladies to earnestly share in the labors attendant nupon the plan to establish a widows' and orphans' home in our state, an enterprise which commends itself to the public generally, and those possibly to be interested especially. TO THWART THIEVES. The Reason Osborne Took Possesslon of the Governship. CHEYENNE, Wyo., Dec. 3.-The struggle fqr the governship of Wyoming still con. tinues. Yesterday Osborne, democratic governor-elect, after effecting an entranoe into the governor's office, issued a proola. imation to the people of the state, calling upon them to obey his command and rec ognize him as governor. To-day Acting Gov. Barber issued a counter proclamation of considerable length, in which he details with no little verbosity the reasons why Osborne acted illegally in taking posses sion of the office and dilating on the causes that prevented a canvass of the state vote, and concluded with an assertion of his own authority. The document was signed by Barber twice, once as acting gov ernor, again as secretary of state. At noon to-day Osborne's position changed from one of siege. He had all yesterday been inclosed in the governor's office with Barber's secretary. During the night the secretary fell asleep and was promptly locked up in a separate room by Osborne. Change came with the arrival of a number of friends, for whom rreviously stubborn doors flew open. Osborne, after deliberation, appointed ats private secretary the well-known politician, Timothy Dyer. Osborne will address an other proclamation to the people in the morning. Meanwhile it is said the republi cans managed to canvass the vote, thus de feating the very object for which Osborne's step was taken.

VISSOULA HOUSE SHUT UP The Sheriff Suddenly Appears and Carts Off All of the Furniture. A Move in the Legal Fight for Pousession of the Proporty. uilte a Sensation (reated, the House Be. Ing Fall of (uests at the Time State News. MIrIIOTLL, Dee. a.-[~pecial.]-At eight o'clock this evening the sheriff served the papers for an undertaking on claim and delivery of the furniture of the Missoula hotel. Eight drays with a large force of men had been employed and the work of removing the furniture to a vaeant room under the First National bank commenced immnnediately. l'he uarge number of guests in the house as the time were considerably -'"onished at the proceeding and many s.,) loud in their denunciations. A large crowd collected to witness this sudden and totally unexpected removal of the hotel furniture, while the house was full of gueste. It was learned that the papers had been served in the in terest of A. G. England, and that J. M. Keith was acting for England. Mr. Keith stated to 'I ra INDrPENDE)NT representative that Mr. England had a deed for the hotel and a bill of sale of the furniture; that Wm. Kenedy had occupied it for a year and had paid no rent during that time, and Mr. England had found it necessary to re sort to these proceedings to get posreeion of hie property. Mr. Kenedy was absent from the city. but his two eons were in charge of the busineee. Friends of Mr. Kenedy state that on Nov. 17, 189t, the house was owned by Samuel Mitchell and Mr. Kenedy. At that time they gave a mortgage on the house and furniture, shortly after which the house was closed under attachment made by the First National bank. The house was sold to Mr. England, a hotel company orlan sionof the house which he has continued to run until this evening. John Kenedy, son of the proprietor, stated that the conditions under which the deed to the hotel and bill of sale to the furniture were given have never been fulfilled by Mr. England, and title to the whole is in litigation, to come up in the March term of court, bonds hav ing been given by Mr. Kenedy for the rent.
