DtntrN. Jnn. 17.-Dorlin society Is discussing with bated breath a St. Petersburg scandal to which none dnres rofor openly. Most of tho (lttyor moro principals aro Russians, but a few of them aro arlstooratlo Germans, somo of them In tho hlghost dlplomatlo offices and with honorable records In the officers' corps of tho German Army. Tho St. reiersburc pollco reoently Informed the Orar that many mon In his eounsols anil In Itussiun ofllclnl Wo attended frequent Nihl i Sto meetings at a mansion In nfashlonnblo JIV ,treor. Tho-w gatherings wore peoullar (or tha largo numbor of foreign diplo matist, especially Gorinans. who wont tothim. Tho tsltors arrived between 0 nml 11 P.M. and straggled away at 3 or 4 o'clock In th morning. Tho pollco watched tho houso fjur woa'i before thoy roeotved ordors to raid It. Thoy were thon suro that a tremendous Nihilistic plot was hatching, and a forco of 200 police was called out to make it certain that not a single participant oscaped. Tho jyilleo wero supported by four companies of toMiers within call, and were dlreoted by 0n. Greer and a small body of detcctlvos of tho political division. Tho houso In which tho meetings wore held was surrounded on last Monday night by this little army. At midnight, when the usual number of visitors had been Boon to enter. Oon. Gressor. who had onrrled the password, gained admittance to tho vestibule. Ho was elosely followed by his detectives. Thodoor keepor was thrown down and gagged, tho Inner door was smashed with an axo. and, with drawn revolvers, doteotlves and police nittn. led by Oon. Grosser, burst through. They wro astounded to And thorn solve'. Inrtcad of amid tho sombre proceed ings of a revolutionary meeting, at the open entranco of a brilliant ballroom filled with music and tlowers and gay with tho national colors. Homo forty men and womon In light flowing Grecian costumes were dancing. At small tables In the cornors half-intoxicated couples drank champagne and in small pri vato rooms at tho back several moro couples were found dining and drinking freely. To the surpriso and dismay of Gon. Grosser tho fifty or sixty persons participating In the orgies wore found to bo men and women In the hlchest St. Petersburg society. Several of the womon wero known to bo rooelved with favor at court, and among tho men iero ltusslan offloers of high rank and representatives of foreign legations In tho capital. To reltove the mutual embarrass ment temporarily. Goo. Grosser took tho names and official titles of all the men, and tho names andolfiolal titles of the husbands of all the women, and then hustled everybody out of the house. No prisoner was taken to jail by the police. All however, received on tho next day paternal admonitions or cuffs, according to his greater or less enjoyment of imperial j favor from the Czar. i The fashionable house at which the orgies were held was found to be owned by a Russian Jew. who rented It to the principals In tho car nivals, as the affairs were politely termed. The police had been deceived as to tho nature of the gatherings there by the fact that evory attendant entered in male attire, for a rule of the society was that, for the sake of safoty, tho i women must come in coats and trousers. Each carnival was devoted to the imitation of tho dress and customs of a particular nation. Onthenightof the raid ever) thing was cast In a Grecian mould. Gon. Grossor went to tho Czar with his re pott In the expectation that his sovereign would borellovod and pleasod by the explosion of tho theory ot a dynamito plot. The Czar, i however, wos in rngo when ho hoard tho do- , tails of tho corruption prevalent among tho noblemen in his army. The result of his ex amination of the names submitted by Gon. ! Gressor was that many Russian oflleors and ofllcial8 wore transferred to places In tho prov inces ami that two Secretaries of Legation ' . were compelled to take long vncntions. Two i married womon, who participated in tho " Grecian night have beon excludod from court, . and another left the city before sho was asked to go. A list of tho Germans involvod in tho (sandal was sent by tho Czar to Hmperor Wil liam, and tho hopo was expressed in the Czar's l accompanylug letter that the offenders would be punished severely. An inquiry will bo J made Into the St Petersburg matter, and into i the night life of the Berlin officials whom tho Emperor suspects of similar immorality, as ho 't has shown in sovoral of his communications and remarks to commanders of garrisons in largo cities. ' Tha deatli of tho Duke of Clarence, it is I thought, will consummate the reconciliation between Kniperor William and tho rrlnco of Wales. The Emoeror had high rospect for the , deadDuko on account of his comparatively blameless Ilfo and the general conformity of Ids doportracnt. outside of military mattors. with tho rather puritanical Hohenzollern I'leas, In hU long letter of condolence to tho Vrln-o ot Wales tho Emporor closos with these orrfs: "May God help you all to bear tills great affliction." I Berlin society has hastonod to tako its cue , from tho Imperial leador aud display its re- r card for the dead Duko and his relatives. Tho I impresi Frodoi Ick has recoivod scores of tol- ecrams and notes of condolence and hun t Jrods havo signed their names on tho visitors' book at her palace. On tho day whontlionows ot the Duke's death became known carriagos t " sympathetic friends blocked the streets near her door, recalling tho scenes ut tho aath of hor husband and father-in-law.

This ebullition of nntl-Russlun fooling would have been punished In Ilismarok's day with tho Imprisonment of the editor, but so far It has passed unnoticed by tho Crown's attendants. Hormnnn P.ohdoof Borlln, long tho trustod Secrctnrynnd Treasurer of the fund for Super annuated Itoyal Bandmasters of tho Prussian Army, was ottnekod a short time ago in anony mous letters to mombors of the fund. An in vestigation of tho charges lod to tho discovery that for years he had lived a doublo life. Ho supported two mistresses, was a heavy and habitual gamblor, and was spending 20,000 murks a year, although his salary was but 4,000. When ho learned that ho was about to be exposed Hondo committed suicide. In the samo room with his dead body, which was not cold whon a poltcoman arrlvod with a warrant for his arrest wns found a trunk nackod for a long journey. In tho tray woro 8,000 marks. It Is supposed that ho purposod to flee to Amorica nnd resorted to RUlctdo only when ho found It too lato for him to maho his escape. Ills accounts aro known to bo 80.000 marks short, and It Is expected that tho total deficit will be at least 150.000. Carl Hotho openod an "Information and in quiry bureau" In Munich somo tlmougo and soon gnlnod tho confidence of many merchants nnd titled Bavarian famllios. Thereupon ho turned his business Into n blnckmaillng en terprise, from which ho received an Incnmo of somo $'J5,000 mnrksn year. A few days ago, howovcr. ho tried to extort money from a raor chnnt who retimed to negotlato or compro mise, and eventually reported him to tho po lice. When threatened with arrest ho said that he lind prlntod In Amorica a chronique scamlaleufe for Bavaria, and that, wero he lm prlsonod, he would havo tho kingdom floodod with the pamphlets. Nevertheless, he Is now in jail. His threat is thought to be a bluff, although many high famllios In Munioh, whose secrets ho holds, are quaking in apprehension.

All togethor, hols supposed to havo be trayed those who trusted him to tho extont of 500.000 or 600.000 marks. Berlin's City Council is discussing the ad visability of closing the halls for tho lodging and feeding ot tho unemployed. Similar halls for women wero closed somo time ago. as thoy were frequented almost exclusively by dlsrep utahlo pt-rsons. and served at best only to re cruit the ranks of tho dishonest and vicious. Tho men's halls aro said to shelter mostly tramrs. ruffians. nnd thiovesof the worstolass. Yesterday, for instance, eight men entored tho hall In tho Alexander Platz nt 8 o'clock in tho morning, gathered around tho stove, and snt there singing, cursing, and drinking from bot tles until 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Anybody clso win. tried to approach tho stovo was knocked down if he did not leavo upon tho first warning. Tho keeper was unable to eject them and callodi two policemen. They could do no bettor nnd called for reinforcements. Tho eight ruffians barricaded tho door, and not until it had been broken in with an axe nnd three, policemen had been stretched on tho floor were tho eight men arrested and started for tho station.

Brachfeldt's lists wore found to be clenchod and tho okln on his face was torn. After his short struggle, however, he had died and tho body was replaced in the coffin and the burial servlco was repeated. An opon fishing smack was caught in an Ice block near Stralsund on last Monday. The throe occupants remained thore, without food or shelter, in the biting cold for three days and nights. Thoy wero then discovered from a lighthouse, a rescuing party broke tho loe. and the throe starved and frostbitten fishermen were carried to niddorsol.

KINGSTON 80VIKTT With NOT 11EKD XUB PROTEST OF TUB PltEACUERS. Dominie Anderson Objected to the Costumed Fair la Aid of m Fnblle Hospital He. cause of the Etll Tendencies of tha Ea. tsrtalnmant Orlcla of tha Trouble. Kingston, Jnn 17. Every ono of tho 23.000 persons who eomposo the population of King ston and Rondout soems to havo forinod a do elded opinion on tho klrmess question. Tho troublo all began with Domlnlo Anderson. About a yoar ago a movement to hulld a publto hospital was started. Kingston is a big place and has its full share of sickness ot all sorts, but It has never had a hospital. So. when ono was suggestod. tho ldoa mot with Instant approval. But It was slow work. The commlttoo wont about from house te house, asking for subscriptions. They came in too slowly. Then Mrs. Julia Dillon of Rondout gathered somo ot hor friends around her and said: "Now, supposing wo toko this hospital matter In hand nnd show tho mon how to do It." Then the ladlos began to puzzlo ovor the best way to raise tho monoy. "I havo It." Mrs. Dillon ex claimed, "lot's havo a klrmess." "That's itl That's ltl" chorussed tho othors. "Why didn't wo think ot It boforo 1" Horo Is whore Domlnlo Anderson comes in. Tho Rev, W. F. Anderson Is paBtorof St Jnmos's Methodist Church. He Is youns, do cldedly good looking, and pleasant. His church, however, lias had more than ono tus sle with cortaln cubtoms and diversions ot tho social world. Domlnlo Anderson's predecessor had ono of them and made up his mind to get tho best of it. Domlnio Anderson's predecessor is now In Nowburgh. whore his church ts not so big and society Is still horo and flourishing. When Mr. Anderson heard thntthoro waB go ing to boa klrmess In Kingston, hois said to have said to himsolt: "Klrmoss? Lot mo soe. My impression ot a klrmess is thai it is a very improper affair." Tho preacher wroto to soveral frlonds in Nowburgh and TJtlca who knew nil about klrmossos, nnd asked thom for information. A klrmeSB is nothing olso hut a fair aooom- fianied by dancing in costumo. nnd the mpropriety of it depends entirely upon the nature of the fair anil tho character of the costumes. But Domlnlo Anderson, as ho told a reporter, assonlated In his mind a klrmess with a French ball. When ho received tho Information ho desired ho got up a protest against the holding of tho klrmess and took it around to the pastors and school teachers of tho town and asked them to sign It. Ten of thom did so. When he approaohed tho Rev. D. Noyos of tho Second Reformed Churoh. Mr. Noyos said: "I am sorry, but I cannot conscientiously sign it, as I approved of a similar entertain ment for tho benefit of our own church." While Mr. Anderson was doing all this Mrs. Dillon and her assistants wero making rapid preparations for tho klrmess. Sho on gaged tho servioos ot Miss Margaret Eagor, who has acquired a reputation for managing affairs of this kind, nnd It was arranged that a meeting should tio held on Jnn. 10 to discuss tho matter. This meeting was held in tho Council chamber of tho City Hall yesterday afternoon. There weio more than 100 mon nnd womon present, all ot whom wero Interested in tho project. Among all them there was only ono clorgyman, tho Rov. William Shaw, an old man who was formerly pastor of tho Refnrmod Church, but who Is now retired. Somothlng had boon whispered around town about Domlnlo Andorson's ideas on klrruosses. and, Mr. Shaw being an inti mate friend of Mr. Anderson, it soon began to bo feared that bometnicg was going to hap pen, Mrs. Dillon, who presided. Introduced Slisi Eager, who raado a tittle speech. In which she told what a klrmess was. In European coun tries." she said. " thoy usually have a series of national dances after a religious holiday. This they call a klrmess. In this country, however, a klrmess Is usually a fair at which the danoo ot various oountries are shown in tho proper costumes. In some ktrmesses people go to extremes in the oo6turaos they adopt" In tho one wo will give, however, no lady will wear a dress that is moro than six Inches from the ground. Nor will there bo any low necked dresses or vulinr display of drapery of any kind. There will be children's dancos. and the littlo onus will have to rohoarso after school hours. It must in no wlso lnterfore with their studies. When Miss Eager had finished Mr. Shaw, who had been staring norvously at the celling, aroso and hemmed. "In behalf of a numbor of pastors." he began. "Ihnve come hero to rend a protest which they, which wo got up. I a that Is. h'm, ladless and gontlemen, " Then ho read the protest. The clorgym en and tho school teachers had decided that the klr mess was den'orniizlng. that it was harmful to children, that sickness and sometimes oven death followed it and that its effects wore im moral, and therefore on the grounds of health and morality they begced the ladles in ehnrge ot the affair to reconsider it Mr. Shnw road tlio nnmes of signers. Thoy wero tho Rev. W. F. Andorson. St Jnmes Methodist Church: Henry Whito CalUhan. principal of tho Acndomy: R. -I. C. VanSljoke. First Rofoimod Church; tho Rev. H. W. bhorwood. Rondout Baptist Church: H. C. Darrow, principal of ono of tho city scliools; tho Rev. F. J. Belcher. Rondout M. E. Church: tho Rov. J. F. Williamson. Kingston Presbyterian Church: tho Rov. t', S. Stowetts, Rondout Presbyterian Church: tho Rev. D. H. Hanaburgh, Clinton Methodist Church, and tho Rov. William A. Shaw, retired. As soon as he had finished tho Rev. Mr. Shaw stuffed tho protest Into his pocket and wnlked out At llrst there was a laugh at tho way tho ex-pastor rushed out .... Then there was a hubbub of excitement. Ono man got up and said: "This is uncallod for, The ladles In charge of this affair are fully capable of judging as to the morality or immorality of the entertainment Thoy are just as anxious tor tho moral wolfaro of tho town as any of tho pastors." J. R. Clark. Charles F. Cantlno. and Dr. Crlspcll. all prominent in socloty here, mado short speeches denounolng this interference, and when all the tumult had subsidod they made final preparations for the opening of tho klrmess on Feb, & After tho meeting ono man, a wealthy mer chant, said: "Thlsis an insult to evory woman In the city. The Idea ot an Impudent parson tolling us that our sisters ami wives are engaged in a pleasure that has an immoral offect I don't blame Pastor Shaw. He's the only one. probably, they could havo Induced to road tho protest. The rost were all nfrnldtocome." .,..,. Whon this was repeated to Mr. Shaw hnsald: "Woll.Mr.Anderson has gotthogripnnd ho has to husband his strength, so I thought I might ns well go there and read tho protest and savo him the troublo." This morning Mr. Andorson spoko to tho children of tho Sunday school about tho klr mess. but he would not tell tho reporter what ho said nor would ho show the protest. Dr. Van Styko said: .... , . "I signed It simply at tho request of men In whom I havo great conlldoneo. As I under stand it. it wns not meant to cnll a klrmess Immoral, but simply demoralizing. Tho whole troublo. I think, was occasioned by tho In felicitous wording of tho jirotest." In soveral churchos to-day tho pastors point ed out tho dangers ot the klrmoss, and re quested tho congregations to keep away from it As a result tho whole town is talking, nnd whon It occurs it will probably do a rushing business. Bomxa hoiks in tub night. Two BIK Eye nt Inn Nary Yard Antonlna All the East Hirer. Navigators in tho East River wero startled last night by a sudden illumination of their decks as they passed the Brooklyn Navy Yard. It was all due to two ot the electric eyes of Uncle Sara's now navy. Ther flashed from the monitor Miantonomoh. und oery ob ject struck by their radiance stood out in the surrounding blackness like a cameo. Travellers on tho bridge and forrles wondered why the navy was painting lanes of silver out rlvatlirig the moon's ona quiet Sunday evening. Tho shining eyes bored evanoscent holes in. tho nlgnt lit up sections of the big bridge, and stirred up moro speculation than has been indulgod In sinco the news of tho attaok upon the Baltimore's sailors first reached Npw York. Captain Kane of tho Brooklyn Navy lard said that the Mianto nomoh was testing her search lights for the first time. Tho oxnoriment had beon mado on Sunday, bocause it was dosirod to havo tho monitor ready for fight as soon as possible. The Mlantonomoh's searoh lights are of about 24.000 candlo power, and cnpablnof dis covering a Chilian torpedo boat or torpedo sevoral mllos away. Stable Hoy Hubert Dies or Ills Wound.

Ono Representative Say thnt Congress win Hectare War After marine - the Correspondence. Rend without Any Sug gestion (Vom tha Prealdent-Chlll'a Of fensive Not Han Not Been Withdrawn. Washington. Jan. 17. Tho programmoand work of Congress this weok will depend almost ontlroly on whothor tho President sends In tho Chilian correspondence If thocorrespondoneo is sont in. and this Is probable, within twenty four hours nftor its receipt Congress may de clare war. Nearly overyhlng depends on the tono of tho Proairiont's lottor of transmittal. In which It Is prosumod ho will ombody some roc oinmendatlons. Such Is tho fooling among mombors of Congress that It Is reasonablo to suppose thnt suggestions mado by tho Presi dent will bo promptly endorsod. Tho corro spondonoo would. In its lino of ordinary pro cedure, goto thoCominltteoon Forolcn Rela tions of tho Senate nnd tho Commlttoo on For eign Affairs ot tho House, hut tho situation hns. It Is thought by ninny, nssumod such a gravo aspect that both Housos will probably tako up tho correspondenco.lt it Is sent in, nnd give it immediate consideration. Tho correspondence Itself Is said to be of such a nature that it will servo to fan tho war like flame. A member of Congress who has assisted tho President in propuring somo ot it Is authority for tho statement that Congress would declare war without dolny. upon hear ing tho corrospondcuco lead, without oven n suggestion from tho President As was stated in thosadospatchos n fow days ago. tho offensive note ot Honor Mntta. Minis tor of Foreign Affairs In tho provisional Gov ernment ot Chili, dosplto tho report to tho contrary, had not thon boon withdrawn or disavowed. A day or two ago. how oor. Senor Pedro Montr, tho Chilian Minis ter, was Instructed by his homo Government to withdraw It. but it Is understood that tho offer ot withdrawal was accompanied by con ditions or explanations by tho Chilian Govern ment which were unsatisfactory to tho United States. Minister Egan. It is understood, was directed to communicate with Scnor l'eroira. Minister of Foreign Affairs, tho dissatisfaction of this Government with tho terms of the with drawal, but his interview with thnt official is said to havo resulted In no modification of tho instructions to Bonor Montt which would render them acceptable to the Unltod States. No confirmation can bo had of tho report that Minister Egan has communicated to President Harrison an Intimation that tho Chilian Gov ernment is on tho vorgo ot dissolution, and that tills fact prevontod tho Frosldont from Bending tho Chilian correspondence to Con gress last weok. It is most improbable, al though tho bolicf that a chaugo ot administra tion in Chill is a matter ot a short time only is hold by some woll-lnformed persons in Wash ington. But Mr. Egan does not communicate with Prostdont Harrison; his despatches aro to tho 8oorctary of State, and such a dospatoh as that Indicated has rjot been received at tho department, nt least tho officials deny all knowledge of It. It Is expected that orders will be sent, if they havo not nlroady gone, to Cupt. Evans of tho Yorktown to carry tho refu gees placed aboard the ship by Minister Egnn to somo convenient port in Peru, but the exact destination will probably be left to tho dis cretion of tho Y'orktown's commander. The Nny Department on Saturday ordered another shipment of 20,000 pounds of gun cotton from New York to tho Maro Island Navy Yard. Tho explosive was packed in copper casks containing 200 pounds each, and in structions were given to expedite the ship ment in every way possible.

This unexpected act of the Chilian Minister of yor elgn Affairs is due, he states, in part to ray saluting the Spanish Minister when he came aboard to deliver two refngees. I have requested the American Minister to say to the Minister of Foreign Affair that X am respon sible to my own Government, aud not to that of Chill, in such matters, and that I consider Ills criticism offen sive, and wilt not accept it.
