Dkri in. 8oit. 27. Tlio clerical party In Gor
mny Is torn by dissensions ns to tho nttltudo
p( tho Vatican toward tlio trlplo alliance. Tho
'J patriotic section of tho party under tho Frelhorr
-.onNMiorlemcr-Alstniid Count Hnllostrom la
te-H-nttnlly Gormnn. Its position was doQaod
joeently by llallestrem thus:
"It over au over-bold enomy oross tho Gor
man border, wo Catholics will stand In tho
front of battlo to defend tho urentnos.i and
unity "' tho fatherland, as well as tho mon
archy." Such sentiments, says (rermaiifti, the princi
pal clerical organ In Germany, nro rccolved
with npplauso throiiRhout Cut hollo Germany.
Tho smaller and rcllatlous faction of tho party
loin toward tho position of tho Owrraiirre
R Uomnnn and tho Monxleur a liotnf, which vio
lently attack tho trlplo alllanco and advocate
the cwso of Franco and Russia. Tho religious
faction ns-iort that tho Topo favors Franco aud
that tho German clericals should follow him to
this nttltudo. Count Ilallo-itrom. nt tho head
of tho patilotlo faction, donouneos this claim
as " an amazing bltot shamolossness," and do
Blos that tho Popo has iudiratcd Hie courso In
auction for Oorman clericals. Thcro aro
prospects that tho two factions will bo united,
although tho contest between them Is now
wry bitter. That tho differences havo come to
Bopen dlsputo In rnoetluRS and tho press Is a
irmptoru thatthe clericals lack a strong culd
tag hsnd like that of Ludwle Wlndthorett, who
always kept harmony in their rnnks and mus
ttrod them undivided for every strucelo.
As soon as the Czar decided to bo to Mos
cow to attend tho funeral of tho Grand
Duchess Paul, tho Russian Court Marshal tele
graphed to Chancellor von Cnprlvl a schedulo
of tho Impede! journey through Germany.
Caprtvl at onco Issued orders to ovory statlon
Buuteralonir too Czar's routo roqulrlnu that
tbe local Chief of Polleo and policemen In
citizen's clothes should bo on every station
platform on hour betoro tho Czar's train was
duo and romnln mi duty till tho train reached
tho nest station. Tho wholo railway system
alone tho Czar's routo was confuted during
his journey. Trains woro held over tlmo nt
many stations, waiting passengers were kept
from tlio platforms, and tho usual schedules of
trafflo woro entlroly disregarded. At llcrlln
200 pollcomon wero on duty at tho station,
und the platform was cleared r.n hour before
tbo Czar's arrival.
At first the polleo refused to allow reporters
In the waiting rooms, but finally bundled them
all into a boscage, room and fastened tho door
and windows. About forty newspaper men
clamored for tho privilege of flattening their
noses against tho ianes, which could accom
modate but ten faces. Tlio trouble was vain,
however, bocaudo the train ran so far Into tho
itatlon that none of them got tho desired vlow.
A station official describes the Czar ns
dressed Inathick tweed suit and a black derby
hat He was nervous and irritable, and asked
tbe Buaslsn Secretary of Location Impatiently
for Ms chief. When informed that the Am
bassador was on his vacation, tho Czar made
an impatient gesture and strode off to
the supper room, , talking with Frlneo
Frederick Leopold, who as tho Prlneo
of the highest rank then In Berlin
represented Emperor William II. Tho Czar
ate and drank heartily. Before resuming his
journey ho requested tho Prince to repeat his
thanks, already communicated by telegraph,
to the German Emperor for his expression of
sympathy and condolence. As far ns could bo
observed, the Czar did not notice the absenco
of Chancellor von Cnprlvl.
The Jlotrt'n Courier' statement that the
Czar told the Trlnco ho would visit the Em
peror in Berlin as soon,nsclrcumstnnces por
Wi mltted Is regarded ns pure fiction. No words
to that effect wero spoken on tho platform, and
the dally In question has no officio! connection
through which it could ascertain conversation
In tho supper room. Tho Russian rinnnco
Minister, through He Giors. has repeatedly
urged tho Czar to meet tho Emperor In Berlin,
to as to Insure the success of the Russian loan.
The Czar was still undecided as to his trending
German territory ot nil when tho nows of the
Grand Duchess Paul's death reached him.
Probably the matter depended largely upon
tho weather, for tho Czar Is very ronsltlvo to
seasickness, and dislikes to mako a journey by
watr when It Is nt nil rough.

Much Irritation Is felt In official quarters In
Berlin on account of Russia not only declining
to reconsider her refusal to roopon coramorciM
negotiations with Germany, but nlso Inciting
Btrnia to repudiate her treaty with Austria
with o view to obtaining bettor torms. Riu
f la's object la this Is undoubtedly to embar
rass tho commerclil relations of tho powers
In the trlplo alliance.

" How nro you. Mr. Mnyor?" said Mr. Flowor
In his happy way.
The pink camo to Mr. Coogan's faco. no was
apparently not In humor to appreciate tho
plensantry.
" I only hope. Mr. Flowor," ho ropllod, "that
after election d.iy I shall not mako you uncom

Mr. Flowor saw that Mr. Coogan was sensi

few pleasant words.
Mr. Flower will return to Wntertown present

Tho committee has also slip-, of Warner Mil

of Sam and Eva by Editor W. R. Carter of tho

here. Thornton's story of being lnnd

Thornton was elosoly questioned nnent this

It Is said, has threatened to do her bodily

Yesterduy afternoon he was soon walking up ';
and down thn street near by, nnd at 8:30 ,'
o'clock In the evening ho went Into tho cigar
store on the ground lloor, which Is kept by
