Tho statement of Dr. Otto Arondt's Deuttch WoehetMatt thnt Cnprlvl was bout to resign has rnlsod n storm of protest and dontnl In official circles here. It Is said to bo the result of n plot ot tho Conservatives, who opposo him for his part In tho Zoltvoroln ne gotiation, to tho detriment of their agrarian Interests, and ot tbo National Liberals, who arc tiring to show tho iiocosslty ot recalling - Bismarck to powor. v Dosptto tho dentals of tho Chancellor and all official and semi-official organs ot the Govern monk it Is bollovod that tho Prlmo Minister Is wearr of his ofllco and has shown, an inclina tion to rctlro from political Ufa. As a com mander ho was unqualifiedly successful, and led a lifo almost baro of adverse criticism. As a statesman, howovor, he has been over undor tho shadow of his prodeoossor. and has boon regarded throughout tho cmplro as a com paratively modiocro man in tho Cabinet and a nonontlty In parliamentary politics. Blsmurck's virulont attack upon his succes sor. howovor, in tho Hamburger JCatliricltien, especially concerning tho iZollvoreln of the threo alllod countries, and tho mora insidious but equally detrimental diatribes ot tho Mu nloh Altgemeina llritung. haa rendered it im practicable for the Cbanoellor to resign. Tho bonds between him and tho Emperor have been etralnod. however, and would doubtloss havo boon broken had not Bismarck put both in a position whoro an open rupturo would glvo new InOuenco to their common onotny. Tho disagreement between Caprlvi and Wil liam bogon over tho Emperor's still-born plan for n now navy. William projected tho build ing of a float of colossal Ironclads, with a viow to making Germany a naval power of equal strength with Russia. Caprlvi disapproved of tho plan and finally flatly rofusod to endorso it The Emperor would not abate his demands, and Caprlvi resigned. Hardly had the Emper or rocelvod tho notice of his Chancellor's decision than ho was on his horse, and with but two attendants hurried oft to tho Chancellor's house. He entreated Caprivlto retract his resignation in view of tho new diffi culties that it would onablo Bismarck to lay in the way of the Government. After a halt hour's argument Caprivl reluctantly consentod to keep his office. Tho Chancellor, however, never regained his pristlno influence with tho Emporor. Ho was. in fact, largely supplanted as tho first adviser of the throne by Dr. Miquol. Minister of Finance, and sometime Burgo master of Frankfort, whom an independent daily, in discussing his power in tho Cabinet, describes as "slippery as an eel. an astuto parliamentarian, and the foremost ot German Cnanolers." Miquol's lnflnonco over the Emporor in creased alarmingly after Caprlvl's ineffectual resignation, and he was commonly dubbed "tbo coming man." Recently, howovor. the . Finance Minister has lost apparently somo of v. hlsjioM.on William, wha refuses to recognize. " any "determining influence except his own in State affairs, favors only his own plans, and is. in short his own Chancellor. Matters in tbo Cabinet have been compli cated, moroovor, by Miquol's endeavors to mako the most ot his popularity at court and oust tho Cliancellor. A coolness between tho . two Ministers resulted, and Miquol now op poso' in tho Cabinet ovcry proposition tliat boars tho stamp ot Caprlvl's approval. Jloau timo tbo Emporor has ceased listening atten tively to tho words of elthor, and when ho seeks advice goes to Gen. Moorsoholdt Huol lesca, comroandor of the Gardo de Corps. . The intentions and aspirations of tho latter aro enigmatical, bnt it is thought that he docs not aspiro to Cabinet honors. Doubtless Chaneoilor Caprivl will bo able to maintain his present offlco for years without exorcising any strong influenco with William, if ho remains content with tho moro somblanco of power and averts the impondlng dangers from party hotrod. Both strong wings of tho Conservatives disllko him because ho doos not fight for thorn tooth and nail as did Bismarck. Formerly tho independents could not flatter him enough, but his famous attack on thorn at tho last sitting of tho Reichstag embittered them boyond reconciliation, although they ap prove of tho Zollverein negotiations. The support ot tho Clericals is unoorlain: . that ot the oxtrcmo wing could bo bought only for concessions that would urouso Protestant Germany, and threaten a ronowal ot tho Kul turkompf. Nevertheless, in this opposition Caprivl may find now strength, for Emporor William Is likely to stand fast behind him. not that ho will lovo Caprlvi more, but Parliament loss. The Emporor regards the llolchstag and political parties as necessary evils. Any parliamentary effort at Independent action is to him like a rod rag to a bull, nnd ho delights in thwarting tho deputies of all opinions In their attempts to guldo tho Government's course. Prlnco Hohenlohe is spoken ot by Inde ' pondent dalllos as a possiblo successor of Caprivl in caso tho Cabinet difficulties bocomn acute, but It is hardly probablu that ho would accept tbo appointment. A week before Bis marck's retirement tho Emporor hastened oft to Alsace, ostensibly to hunt, but as ho was novor in tho Hold but in constant consultation I with tho Prlnco, it was suspoctod thon aud was subsequently ascertained that his object was to offor tho Chancellorship to,tho Governor-General. Frinco Hohonloho decllnod tho offer then on tho ground that ho wished to eontlnuo his important work of reconciling the imperial provlncos to Gorman rule and it Is not llkolythat he would now resign tho laurols won by him in his wlso administration thero to accept tho uncortaln and thankless position at tho head ot tho Cablnot. Tho Emperor, morooar, has returned again , to tho policy dictated by his military instincts, and should Caprlvi prefer to retire. Ills suc cessor would be probably an aetlvo GonoraL Gon.MeorschcidtIIuollescm.il lie retains his present Influonco, will bo tho most likely man now mentioned for Ministerial honors. It is said that, in consoquenco ot the rostorn- ttoa to favor ot tho Waldoruoos. tho General possibly will soon succood Prlnco Ilohenloho In Strasburg, but rumors that ho may bocomo Prime Minister hqvo littlo foundation. Wuldor- seo Is hardly out of tho probationary stugo at d court, and tho Emperor has not forgiven his gravo indiscretion ot spooch and action when I ho was chief of tho groat gonorul staff. Tho I Emporor doos not wish to havo him again in I Berlin bofore ho has shown at a distance that I ho has learned to hold his volublo tonsuo.

If the Imperial troops nro again defeato'l tho position of Pokln and Tlon Tsln will bo extremoly critical. Tho rebels havo captured tho important walled city ot Leao-Yang In Manchuria, and compelled tho inhabitants to fur nish thorn with abundant supplies. It is not reported that any sorlous out rages wore commltod at Lcao-Yang. aud this goes to confirm tho prevalent Impression that tho Mongolian insurgonts nro not a mere ly predatory band, but havo adoflnilodoslgn in tholr undertaking.

It was ovldont that tho brig had capsized whllo on tho starboard taok.a9 all tho port rigging had boon cut away in an attempt to prevent her going ovor. Tho stenmor stopped and sent a boat off to examine tho wrock. but not a living thing could bo found, and tho position ot tho brig prevented any search of hor Interior. Tho brig's yawl was still by her, but two small boats wore gone. This glvos littlo hopo that any lives wore saved, for only tho yawl would havo stood any chnnco ot surviving tho storm thatnffoctod tho brig to such an oxtont as to mako it nocossary to cut away hor running InciuTrioB from Manzanlllo wero sont to all points on tho coast but not a survivor was re Itortod as having mado shore at or noar any port which could bo hoard from. Tho brig Tahiti was 2fX) tons burdon and was ono ot tho fastest sailers ot her tonnago In tho island trade. Hho carried an enormous spread ot canvas. She took on at Butarltari 270 Gilbert Islanders for San Benito, Mexico, to work under contract on coffoo plantations. Tho contract was ono of the usual kind In such cases, and provided that they should work for n term of yoars at wages which would scarcely buy tholr daily moss of beans. On Sept 30 tho brig put In at Drakes Bay. noar Point Roves, for repairs to hor rigging. Sho had boen forcod out other course by foul woathar. and Capt Ferguson did not care to bring his cargo into San Frauoisco for four thattho authorities might beoomo annnylngly Inquisitive Dr. Gibson, surgeon, loft the vessel at Drakes Bay and returned to San Francisco. Ho gavo a graphic account ot tho trip. Tho Islanders on board wero told they wero going to Moxlco. They wero willing, tor at that tlmo tho Islands wore suffering from a short food supply, und tho ohlcfs advised the men it would bo for tho best. H. H. Loavitt of New York, owner of threo-fourths of thovos sol. said that at tho expiration ot tholr term ot service they would be returned to their homes free of expense, this being guaranteed by tho Mexican Government Tho hold was sand wiched with bunks threo and four docp. and no trouble was experienced with tho natives, except a fow fights among somo women, who slushed ono another with knivos on account ot jealousy. On Aug. 10. when 200 miles west ot the Co lumbia River, the brig was caught in a gala. Tho topsail and mainsail were carried awuy. Tho vessel heaved und lurched in tho heavy sea. and tho lslandors. cooped up in the hold, wore thrown Into a state of terror. After tho wind subsided light summersalls wero rigged, and the vessel reachod Drakes Bay. where new sails wero secured. Collector Phelps was appealed to to stop tho vessel, but he saw no authority for doing it though tho Mexican consul said tho contract could not enforced. Tho islanders did not even know the vnluo of money. The vossel looked liko ono ot tbe old slavers, and those a ho saw the wretched natives in the hold pitied lelrfate.

Revenge for Inaulta He Had Brooded Orer May Have Beea the Motive. FnrxnoLD. Nov. 2ft Louis Harriot was brought hero from Koyport at U o'clock last night and was pushed through a pressing crowd into tho jail. Tho Sheriff gavo him a bath and a now suit ot clothos. and thon locked him In n cell. He almost immediately fell asleep and slept soundly until breakfast tlmo this morning. He is as calm and stolid as though ho wero btill Farmer Leonard's hired hand and not the murdorer of Mrs. Leonard. Ho has mado no confession ns yet nor indeed has ho given any further information about himself oxcept to say that his father In Lor raino is dead, and thnt hw mother has married again. No ono Is allowed to seo him. In this brutal and unprovoked murder thero Is a curious study of tho operations of alow and ignorant mind. This mnn Harriot was naturally ot a sullen, resentful, and brooding nature. Farmer Leonurd wus not tho ploas antest mnn In tho world to work for, as many former hired men of his tostify. Harriot was not skilful or roadytolearn. Tho farmor lectured him often, and though Harriot broko out into no violence ot speech or nctlon it was ovldont that he was treasuring up theso tlilngd ugnlnsttho farmer. Mrs. Leonard, who wan a sweet und rellned woman. Incurred Har riot's hatred by rebuking him for boating tho horses. Ho planned rnvongo upon Leonard, nnd, may bo, his original intention was to bring shame and disgruuo upon him by mal treating his wife. lie drove hack to tho houso with that Inten tion possibly on Friday afternoon. Ho took tho ropo from tho spring wagon und tho Iron fish ploto from tho woodshed nnd entered tho kitchen, where Mrs. Leonard vas painting a Pletur. prepared to strike hor down und hind her. Ho threw tho ropo over hor head perhaps, und then, ns her struggles wero too strong, be grow frenzied by resistance, strangled hor to donth. stovo in hor skull, and, having failed utterly of his orlginnl purpose, threw tho body Into the un furnished room nnd fled. It whs first revengu for thnt which his rude, stolid, and sullen nu turo considered Insults, nnd then tho eager thirst for Mood Vihlch rises in such minds With the exhilaration of btruggln. Tho autopsy showed that tho immcdlnto cause ot death was strangulation. A red mark about a quarter of an Inch deep runs arouna the throat On each sldn of tho head tho woman had re ceived torriblo blows, but It wus found that tho skull was not fractured, and thnt tho little blood that was found on tho floor whoro sho was lying came from an exter nal injury to the right ear. Her left hand was bruised and a slight abrasion was found on tho right knee. Tho burial will tnko place to-morrow after noon at IK o'clock from tho Baptist church in Atluntla Highlands. HIE TltlAT.

Evon at theso tho candidates wero not thoro con stantly, ns thoy aro on tho othor days, but tho boomors wore, and they gathered about tho flro In a somowhat vain endeavor to koop warm, for this was a vory cold day In Wash ington. It was cold for everybody, whorons ono weok from to-day It Is apt to bo cold only for thoso candidates for tbe Bpoakorshtp and tho various othor offloos who will havo beon defeated In tho cauoua. Mr. Mills was at his headquarters for an hour or so to-day, and Judgo Crisp was In his rooms nearly all tho aftornoon and evening. Vossrs. Springer and MoMlllln. howovor. wore not visible. While tho candidates wero less aetlvo than usual to-day, tholr friends found It a vory good tlmo to put In somo flno work, nnd thoy did it with a will. Ths result of tho Sabbath wire-Dulling is that tho Springer canvass Is enjoying a decided boom. Thoro were two causes for its inflation to-day. Tho first was in tho foot that Invitations havo boon sent out to all tho Domocratio members known to bo in tho city to a reception to Mr. Bpringor nt his hoodquarters to-morrow morning at 11 o'clock. Tho second causo is that tho Iowa delegation had a conference to-day. at which it was resolved to support Mr. Springor unani mously. Ono branch only ot tho Mills duplex head quarters was open to-day. A fow 31111s men droppod in from tlmo to tlmo and joined in tho story-tolling clrolo about tho fire. Two young Massachusetts Congressmen, Hoar and Wil liams, wero anxious to servo tho Texan, but thoy went away without finding nn thing to do. The MoMlllln parlors wero absolutely de serted, but Gen.
