Emperor, and continue tho Inquiry. When the

(Its Dr. Mlquel an opportunity of pressing
upon the Emperor and the Government his
policy ot reduction, or temporary abolition, as
a measure of relief.
The Emperor Is fully confirmed In his deter
mination to have passed at all hazards at the
next session of the Itelehstag the bill to dimin
ish and punish drunkenness. He has made
manr alterations in his own handwriting in
the original draft of the Mil, whioh. it la said.
goes to far a to legalize the Salvation Army
a toe ground ot the service It has rendered
the cause of temperance, as proved in England
and brought to the Emperor's attention while
there. The Radical members of the Itelabstag
are preparing a formidable opposition to the
bill on the ground thatltls an unconstitutional
Interference with personal liberty. As tho
Emperor's mind l bent on ite passage, a serious
tonBlot Is likely to arise in the Reichstag, tho
a first since the roung monarch's accession to
powtr.
The Emperor, on returning from his trip to
the Norway coat in the Hohemollern, read
the m&llolous and absurd stories about his
health published in the French journals. While
amused at aome ot the Inventions, be cursed
tht inventors: but he would allow no official
denials to bt made, considering the fictions
beneath contempt nnd unworthy ot notice.
There were rumors which represented the
Emperor as not taking these stories so philo
sophically. They said that elaborate dentals
were ordered, angry protests made at Paris,
and the circulation ot all French newspapers
la Prussia prohibited, and that Gen. von
Caprlvl with difficulty persuaded the Emperor
from taking this course.
The recent war scare, whatever eausee it
may have had, waa not provoked this time by
the Government Caprlvl. reversing thu policy
ot Bismarck, did not take advantage of It to
alarm the German people br inspiring tho
German press with all kinds of rumors. Ber
, Jin remained undlsturben and barely noticed
the flurry. But some facts have come out
which are not calculnted to wholly stifle
, alarm. Military circles are agitated by the
I discovery that the Qrst-elats reserve recently
received mobilizing orders. Through the
local police each reservist received a sealed
! envelope, containing a notification to him to
1 Join his regiment ready for marching orders.
' The envelope was not to be opened by tho re
i stiver exeept br order and in tho presenco of
: f the district Chief of Police. One of the resert-
, 1 ills, a reporter, opened bis envelope and dl-
1 f mlged its contents. He In now In prison and
, will be made to suffer eeverely for his Indis
cretion.
A report from across the frontier hits added
r to the uneasiness, and, if true, must leap to a
i ' demand for immediate explanation. The
t i BcUesiidm folia Zeituno publishes a com
J , munlcatlon from Warsaw which says that
I ( Gen. Gourkes, commanding tbeprovlnce, re
sntly received a delegation from Kallsch. and
! la the course ot bis speech on that occasion
Ideelarsd that the relations with Germany were
very bad. and to this he added remarks of an
insulting character concerning an exalted
German personage.
Another check to the hones ot peace-lovers
eomes from Copenhagen, whence semi-official
advices have been received that the Czar, now
in that capital, will not.be able to meet the
Emperor William as was Intended. This la
taken as confirming the report that a com
plete understanding between Russia and
France baa been arrived at, which wonld rn
dtr a meeting between tho two monarchs un
desirable. The conversion of the Princess Sophie ot
Prussia, now wife of tho Crown Prince of
Greece, to the Greek Chnrob. hag Introduced
an element of discord between Germany and
Greece and has strengthened Russia's Influ
ence In that country. The Evangelical pastor,
the Ilev. Dr. Petersen, who accompanied the
Princess to Athens, on tbe occasion ot hsr
arrlage, as her religious adviser, baa found It
uncomfortable to remiln there. He has ac
eordliiKly resigned his pulpit at Athens and
accoptsd a living at Mam?:. When the post of
Court Peaeher at Darmstadt was offered to
aim eighteen months ago he declined fct. re
gaining la Athens at the special desire of the
Princess.
A curious and amusing story Is told In con

ap ward, which has so aroused the attention of
fl( Europe. A photographer ot Mainz named

Tho record ot crime continues as full ns

night on Thursday last throe ruflluns attacked
a watchman lu tho Ilochstrasse. opposite the
Humboldt Gardens. Thoy throw him down
and battered his skull with his own sword and

Wetzel was tbe murderer In each case, nnd
the route he toon was also known within a

ret he still remalnB unarrested.
The pnbllo Is indignant at tnls state ot af
fairs: but tho Inefficiency ot justice Is largoly
due to a bad system. Each town has Its own
police, who are jealous ot others, and resent
Intrusion within their jurisdiction. Even the
suburbs of Berlin have their own polloe. Inde
pendent of tne central city organization. In
consequence of this tho majority of dangerous
criminals reside In the suburbs, and laugh at
the efforts ot the city polloe to catch
them. The proportion ot nndetectod crime
is startling and Is alarmingly on the Increase.
In the case ot this man Wetzel. Berlin detec
tives believe be la the murderer ot Bertha
Wende, the beautiful young wife of a Govern
ment official, who was shot dead in the Thler
gartenon the nineteenth of July, last rear.
Tbe act wa apparently without motive. Sev

he was not pursued, and disappeared in the

German police is loudly called for.

" Tho prisoners taken," explained a police
Captntn. " wero nrrested under tho law that
providos that saloons must bo effectually
closed during Sunday."
Many of the arrests woro mado by offloers In
uniform, who entered side doors, and found
alcoholic boverngea exposed for sale.
Beornl pollcomen who wore Interviewed ex
pressed thomsohos as greatly pleased with
the resolutions adopted br the Commissioners.
" We don't object to doing decent and legiti
mate work," said one ot three grouped
about a corner, "but this going In and
gutting a drink and thon arresting tho
man who gave It to you was rather
touch. Of course we ran do but little toward
clo-ius saloons now, but we will hare more
honrt in what wo do accomplish."
Halooiis are clustered about the Eldrtdge
stroot station as tblcKlv. perhaps, as anywhere
In the city. Bergcant Creedan was at the desk
last night. . .
" Wo haven't made an arrest to-day, ho
said, "and although four mon in plain
clothes aro out on excite duty, I
shan't look for any prisoners upon
their return. Men connocted with this
precinct Ithe Eleventhl havo never been told
to go out and induce saloon keepers to sell
th&in liquor so that arrests might be made.
Personally I don't belloe lu tbe spy system.
Thero are black sheep In every flock, and
It can't be denlad that there are policemen
who havo bought liquor after hours and then
offered to sottlo with the Baloon keeper for
muney. Where thoro Is so much smoke there
must tioeomc lire. I myself have brought two
pollcomen botore the Commissioners un
charcos of this nature and have seen them
punished."
There were many saloons In tho precinct
wnoso side doors woro open to whoover might
Wish to push ttioni.
Thers were two arrests by the Lonnard street
police for exposure ot tho bar. Thn prisoners
wer Frank hrssler. tinrkeoner of Dietrich,

Thero were no senrinels nut and he was nos

was said that the patrolmen and men
In plain clothes had leeched no In
structions otherwise than those ombodlod
In tho resolutions ot thsl'nllco Commissioners,
and that policemen would arrest only where
they could sea " an open violation ot the law."
No arrests wcro mado by the Twenty-second
street or Thirtieth street police. Under
the former interpretation of thn law the ner
ago number ot excl'H arrests In the first of
these proclncts wa-t three a Sunday, and lu tho
other precinct two.
Capt Cllnchy hud four men on excise duty.
They were in uniform. Tnoy loported that
they had not i-eon tho law violated.
One man wa nrrosted by the Forty-seventh
Street police. Ho was Patrick Burklny. who
keeps n saloon at J ifty-Ilrst street and Tenth

man who arrested him bought no liquor, nor
did he see nnybo iy Hse buy.

enterod thn stloon at 12:15 A. M., and found
Kunki 1 solllct; haor to two men over th bar.
and that money was pnssed across thn bar by
thn purchasers to pay for the drinks. Kunkel
said he was only treating some friends prior
to closing his place, but Justioe Ryan held
him for examination.
Geller n as discharged beonnse tbe policeman
who mado the arrest testified that the place
was only open after hours, aud that he saw no
one buy liquor.
Tho Jefferson Market and Tombs Courts had

the company would have to innungo lor them
