Hohenlohe's Ability Seem to Justify All
That Has Been Claimed for
Him.
DIFFERENCE IN TWO CHANCELLORS,
Momentous Question Over the Naming of
Boy Babies to Be Delded-.
Berlin Notes.
(Copyright, 114, by the Associated Press.)
Berlin, Dec. I.-Since his return
from visiting the south German states.
Prince Hohenlohe has famlilariled him
nelf with the dutles of his new office,
and with such rapidity and absence of
notse as to fully justdfy all the expecta
ttons built on him. One of hi first
duties was to listen to a number of re
ports made to him by the chlefs of the
various departments, and he showed a
surprising grasp of all questions of im
portance awaiting prompt solution.
Thus far the most radical difference
between von Hohenlohe and von Cap
rivl Is that the former doernot fight his
battles nor declare his intentions In
what Is known as the "official press."
Hohenjohe expects to see the anti
revolutionary measure adopted within
a few weeks after the opening of the
reichetag, but It It extremely probable
the bill will be momewhat modified in
committee. The leaders of the olpposi
tlon point out that In Its present shae
two paragraphs could easily be em
ployed against them instead of against
the destructilonists.
The war within the socialitat camp
continues to claim the attention of all
polticians. The apparent struggle for
supremacy between Rebel and Vollmer,
with their respective following, Is going
on with undiminished fervor.
Emperor William has ordered that 150
marks be given as a Christmas present,
out of his own private funds, to
each sailor's and fireman'i widow,
whose husband perished by the explo
sion of a steam pipe on board the Ger
man iron-clad Brandenburg early in the
year.
The emperor has given Galus Groth,
the poet, a large gold medal of art and
science.
On the return of Dowager Empress
Frederick to this city the emperor and
empress, accompanied by Prince WiI
ltam, the heir apparent, paid her a
long visit at her palace. The dowager
empress Is showing her accustomed In
terest in the affairs of art.
The agrarian sooletles continued send
Ing telegrams to the emperor during
the past week. expressing loyalty and
asking for his sympathy and aid In
their efforts to promote the Interests
of home husbandry.
The German papers are making
merry over a curious result of the em
p'ror's iproduction iof thq "Song of
Aegir." It is apparently causing the
registrar of births a deal of embar
rassment as it transpires that nearly
every father desires to have his baby,
if a boy, named Aegir. According to
law. however, children can not be reg
istered by pagan names, and the of
flcials are inquiring whether they are
to make an exception in this case. The
court chamberlain is now considering
this momentous auestlon.
A reaction against the unmeasured
claims advanced for the curative effects
of Prof. Behring's diphtheria serum is
setting in rather serlouuly. The most
slignificant utterance in this respect
was made at a meeting on Wednesday
last, of the Berlin Medical society, when
Dr. Hanseman, assistant in Prof. Vir
chow's pathological institute, a mouth
piece of Prof. Virchow himself, sharply
criticised, in detail, Prof. Behring's
serum therapeutics. He declared that
no sumicilent proof had been produced
respecting its curative properties.
The enormous revival of the export
business since Oct. 1 has been remarked
at the United States consul general's
ifimce in this city. This revival has
been especially remarkable in paper
ware, buttons, dress and ready-made
clothing. Some branches of the export
trade, which have recently been dor
mant, now show signs of revival.
Trichinae is reported to have been
found at Cologne and Elherfleld in
American pork which was examined
by German meat inspectors there.
All the trotting clubs of Berlin have
amalgamated .and arrangements are
making for a large, finely-equipped
track in the west end of Berlin. A
number of American trotting horses
have been entered for the events which
are to be decided next spring.
An opposition was got up privately
iy the radlcal prohlilitonlsts among
the American colony here with the re
sult that a great number of people
stayed nway from the Thanksgiving
day celebration at the Kailnerhoff on
Thursday last. The cause of this (,I)
posltion was that wine was not tia
booed at the ainqluet. Mrs. MarIy ,E.

OVERLOOKIPD AN ITEIM.
It is Now Causing Some Inoonvenlence to
keveral States.
Washington, Dec. 1.-An error has
been discovered In the enrolling of the
sundry civil appropriation bill for the
current year, which has seriously In
cmventeneed several states in securing
surveys. For several years past this
bill, in the appropriation for the survey
of public lands, contained a provision,
"That in the states of Montana, Wyom
Ing, C('lorado,. Utah, Washington, Idaho
and Oregon there may be allowed, with
the approval ,of the secretary of the In
teior, for the survey of lands heavily
tembered, mountainous or covered with
dense undergrowth, a rate not to exceed
$25 per lineal mile for standard and
meander lines, $23 per township alnd $20
for section lines."
This provition was incorporated in the
last bill and was accepted by the senate
without oippoltion. But it appears that
in enr.lllng the bill the provlsion was
omitted, and as It was signed by the
presiding .)ic.ers of both house clnd
senate, and the president, the hbill be
came a law without the pIrovlsion.
When the surveyors of states came to
let contracts it was found there were
no surveyors who would engage to sur
vey the lands described in the omitted
proviso at the regular rates. ('orm
plaints were made, and, upon inveeti
gation, It was found to be a purely cleri
cal error. It is understood that ste.l,s
will be taken to have the error cr-.
rected In the urgency deficiency bill,
which will pass probably before the'
holiday recess, and contracts can he,
made for surveys to the full amount of
the appropriation.
NICARAGUA CANAL.
Will Very Likely Receive the Earnest Atten.
tion of Congress.
Washington, Dec. 1.-There Is a strong
undercurrent of belief ammng members
of congress that the Nicaragua canal
will receive very earnest consideration
during the session of congress which be
gins Monday. There is a feeling espe
dielly pronounced in the house and par
ticularly among southern members.
Even those who, like Bailey, of Texas,
oppose the bill on constitutional and
economio pounds, concede the question
will reeeive early attention, and most
of them are of the opinion that the
prospects of its success are good. Mr.
Cooper, of Florldp, says nothing could
so restore the popularity of the demo
cratic party as authorising the con
struction of the canal.
"The democratlc party is the party
which added the Mississippi valley and
Pacific ooast to the national map, and
it is the party which should provide for
this great enterprise. If it will do this
during the short session, and provide
for a more elastic currency and the ap
pointment of federal officers, I infer it
will not long be out of power."
Representative Livingston, of Geor
gia, says: "If the democrats do not act
on the bill, the republicans will surely
take It up when they come in and get all
the credit. It is evident foreigners
want to control the canal." He says
It was the tacit understanding during
the last session that the house bill
should come before the short session.
Senate Finanoe Committee.
Washington, Dec. l.--Senator Voor
heei. chairman of the senate finance
committee, has called a meeting of that
committee for next Tuesday. The ob
ject is a general conference onmatters
under the jurisdiction of the committee,
Including tariff and finance.
Coinage for November.
Washington, Dec. 1.-Reports to the
director of the mint shows the coinage
executed at the mints of the United
States during November to have been
as follows: Gold $2.040,000, silver $1,073.
000, minor coin $94,900, total for the
month $3,207,900.
Tuwo oa rders Nufforoted.
Philadelphia, Dec. 1.-Two persons
lost their lives in a fire this morning at
the fashionable boarding house of Mrs.
C. U. Reves, 818 South Broad street.
The dead are: Mrs. Ella Ray Smith and
Miss Cullenden, both boarders. A col
ored waiter, who discovered the flames
bursting from the shaft of the dumb
walter, attempted to extinguish the
blaze with a water bucket, losing valu
able time.
All boarders on the third floor were
gotten out safely, and the firemen
rushed to the fourth floor, where they
found the doors of Mrs. Smith and Miss
Cullenden locked. They were burst
open, and, lying on the floor of the front
room was the body of Mrs. Smith, partly
wrapped in a carpet, whch she hod
torn from the floor in her agony. She
was suffocuted. Rhe had made an effort
to raise a window, but was too weak.
Miss Cullenden was lying across the
bed In her room and was dead when
reached. There were many narrow c.
capes.

ONE TO GIVE AWAY.
Alabama Enjoys the Distinction of Having
Two Governors, One Mr Than
is Needed.
OATES IS INSIDE, KOLS OUTSIDE.
The Latter not Allowed to Make a Speech
From the Steps of the State
Capitol.
Montgomery, Ala., Dec. 1.-The stae
.,r Alabama now has two governors
and two separate sets of state omcers.
Col. Oates and those elected on his
ticket preside at the state house. C'lot.
Kolb and his contingent have not an
nounced their official headquarters. The
political situation In Alabama to-day
has bee.n a most exciting one. This was
the day .st by law for the Inauguration
of a governor and state ticket. The re
turns of the August electIon have
shownl the election of the democratic
tickel., headed by Cot. William )Oate.,
Oy over 20,000 majority. Thelg Ieglea
ture hiI joint sioueSb| .had (regularly
counted and announced the result. Capt.
Kolb, ()ates' opponent, the nominee o1f
the popullsts , charged frauds and
claimed that he had received a major
ity of the votes and was the rightful
heir to the governor's omee. He de
termined, therefore, to be sworn in and
Wa ii.
At high noon, surrounded by the
members of the legislature, and with
the usual pomp of military display,
Col. Oates took the oath of office upon
the steps of the capitol, standing on the
very spot on which Jefferson Davis
stood when he was sworn in as presi
dent of the southern confederacy. Nu
merous threats had been made by mis
guided friends of Kolb, and to avoid
anything like violence more than
twenty companies of troops, with cart
ridges In their belts, were present and
participated In the inauguration cere
monies, which were without disorderly
event.
At a caucus of Kolbites last night it
was decided to assemble at the state
house at 11 o'clock to-day, an hour In
advance of the inauguration of Oates,
and have Kolb sworn in. Difficulty was
experienced in getting an oicilal to ad
minister the oath. Two populist judges,
sympathizers with the cause, declined,
saying they would lose their offices by
being impeached for treason. At 11
o'clock a message was received at the
state house that Capt. Kolb had taken
the gubernatorial oath in a down-town
oficee, and was comliy to the state
house to make a speeeh. Gov. Jones is
sued orders to give free access to the
state house grounds as long as those
who entered behaved In an orderly
mauner. t
Kolb wars sw.s In James W.
.Powell, a Justice of the peace, In the
law office of Warren Reese, at the
same time the oath was administered
to the other populist claimants. Kolb
and his cabinet then marched to the
state house, through rahks of militia,
and took their places beside the iden
tical portico where Jefferson Davis was
declared president of the confederate
states.
Gov. Jones refused to let Kolb make
a speech and he and his followers with
drew without any trouble.

New York Republicans Disgusted With
Platt's Conduct.
Washington, Dec. 1.-The republican
leaders in New York are becoming very
much disgusted over the attempt of
Boss Platt to manipulate to his own
Interest all appointments growing out
of the republican victory in that state
this fall. There is likely to be a revolt
that may result In his retirement as
republican boss In the Empire state.
(Iovernor-elect Morton. of course, Is
compelled to bow to the wishes of Platt
and on account of this fact there will
be an uprising which may loste to the
republicans. in the future, the advant
age they gained In the last election.
Platt is loked upon as a tricky poll
tician and his only desire seems to be
to promote his own interests. He is
looking ahead to the campaign of 18.4
with the Intention of naming the next
republican candidate for the presidency
with the view of having himself made
secretary of the treasury. If the revolt
that has Just been started in New York
amounts to anything, the prospects are
that he will le very much disappointed.
At the present time Platt is promoting
the interests of Ex-Hitpeker Iteed as
the a presidential candilate. At the
present tioe l'latt is not only likely to
be disappointed in securing any p',lntm
Ise from Reed, but his positioln Is not
strong enough to warrant the belief
that he can control the New York dele
gation lin the next natIonal republican
convention.

Montana Commerelai Travelers Organize
for Profit and Pleasure.
A lodge of the Order of United Com
mercial Travelers was formed In Hel
ena last night by Grand Counsellor A.
J. Dowd, of Chicago. A meeting was
called yesterday afternoon in A. O. U.
W. hall, but organisation was not com
pleted until the evening session, which
lasted until midnight. Quite a number
of traveling men from various portions
of the state were present, as the lodge
formed last night is not to be a local
one in its character. There were thirty
charter members, and this membership
will be largely Increased very shortly.
There were many commercial travelers
in this state Who oQmj4 not be present
at the meeting yesterday and most of
these will join the order sooner or later.
The United Travelers' Is a secret bene
ficlary order. It is a strong organisa
tion, well managed and omcered, and it
exerts a wide social influence.
The omcers elected last night were:
Senior counsellor, E. J. Kirkham: Ju
nior counsellor, A. C. Marshman; post
counsellor, A. H. Adams; secretary.
F. E. Mayall; treasurer, C. C. Prahman;
conductor, J. M. Frye; pare,, C. T. Hull;
w.'ntlnel, E. R. Manning: trustees, 0. L.
Tracy. E. C. Atwater, C. F. Woodman,

TO KILL THE I.NDUSYTRI.
Missouri River Packers Fighting an Advance
of Rates.
Omaha, Dec. 1.-The Missouri river
packers to-night, through the auoci
ation organized here recently to oppose
proposed increased rates east on pack
ing house products, announced a deter
mination to make the railroads feel
this power before the matter Is dis
posed of. The advance in packing
house uroduets and live hogs became
rffective to-day, notwithstanding the
combined protest that went up from
packers of Omaha, Kansas City, St.
Joseph and Sioux City. In fact, the
opposition to the advance was not even
accorded a respe, tfull hearing, so they
claim, amnd the packers now feel that
there are stronger powers at work toI
kill the industry of the Missouri valley
than have' ever h'f"ore ,shown their
hands. In consetquence, there Is a good'
deal of bitterness and all sorts of
threats are heard against the railroads
nsltrumental in thl matter. One of
the comnlittes of tihe' Packers' associ
Iltionl appointed to conduct the fight.
to-night said: "There Is nothing to
prevent lthe packers exporting their
produc't via Port IRoyal. Ilaliveston and
New ()lletas. from ~hlch port 'exi',l

ing that he did not care t, point out
that testimoiny that wav unworthy eof
credence. The plalntift's claim, he said,
that two armed men forced him to ac
company the defendant to the omce of
a justioe of the peace, where they mar
ried under duress, must be substanti
ated so clearly that there was little
room for doubt, or it must be shown
that the plaintiff's mental condition was
such that he was incapable of making
a contract. The first position he did
not think war clearly sustained. He be
Ileved Aaron Hlershfeld was a changed
man, but not to the extent that he
could be ., Id irresponsible, ' He had
taken cariul notice of the eldence;
he had followed each witness closely,
and was confident he had lost no point
that would be of benefit to the plain
tiff, and he saw no other way in justice
than to hold the marriage contract
valid and deny the decree.
The judge had warned the spectators
that there was to be no aplause and
the crowd respected the demand, but
when he maid: "I deny the decree."
the iglh of relief that went up swelled
to murtnurs of aplause. but outside
the court house, where nothing could
prevent, the jubilation of the' crowd
went up. Women who had never seer

Judge McConnell this morning struck

Holcberg. as it was not shown that the
Hlershfields authorized the hiring of
perjured testimony. Defense took all
exception, on the grounds that plain
tiff's own witnesses testified to having
been engaged by Holcberg, and thus the
agency was established. Bee is the
Helena gambler who came here as wit
ness for the plaintiff, but testifled for
the defense.
Judge McConnell also decided not to
admit in evidence telegrams to or from
Hershfield at Helena and Fargo, as It
was desired to close the cruse to-day.
and to secure these telegrmma would re
utre several days.
L. H. Hershfield. brother of plaintiff.

said Aaron had left in the morning, and
not In the afternoon, as defendant tes

Dr. E. M. Darrow, president of the

expert testimony for the defense on

questions, witness said persons so af

the state Hershfield's testimony would
show him to be, would suffer cor

said neuresthenia could be simulated
