Although no ofllolal confirmation of the re
port of an anti-Anarchist Congress in Berlin
can be gainod. there is no doubt that suoh a
plan Is maturing In the German Foreign Office.
Count Cnprivi, at the Instance ot the Emperor,
.who has boen seriously alarmed by recent dis
turbances In Germany. Is trying to gather rep
resentatives ot all European Governments to a
conference on measures against the An
archists. The Pott, in London, asserts
positively that every European power has been
invitod to send delegates tosuob a conferenoe.
and that England alono has doallned to do so.
The l'ost adds, although without quoting fls
authority, that Gladstono has privately ex
pressed his upproval ot sending English dolo

Herman Government Is holding off with Its

The Emporor is filling out rapidly his pro
gramme for this Bummer and fall. Tho most
lmpoilng ovunt ot the yoar at court, in caso
the C7.ar does not como, will be tho reception
of Wllholmlna, the 12-year-old Queen of the
Netherlands. Tho ilttlo Queen 'will como
probably under ths enro of tho Quoon Dowagor,
to return tho Emperor's visit of last year. She
will bo ontertalned at Potsdam in considera
tion of tlio dolicato condition of tho Empress,
who would bo hardly htrong enough to
enduro tho fatigue of n roceptlon in Ber

in the old castlo will bo placod at tho
disposal ot Quoon Wllholmlna and her suite.
Bevoral banquots nnd recoptions will bo givon
In honor ot tho Quoon. Tho principal recep

botwoen tho Crown Prince nnd Quoon Wllhol

of Holland by Germany could nt last be ac

Count CnprM hardly shares tho Emperor's
Illusions on thisHubioct. but In common with
other Gormin statcsmenof roputation bellovos
that tho Dutch spirit would rise in robolllon
against tho marriage. Tho only wuy In which
Germany can get tho Netherlands, thoy say, is

Tho remarkable pamphlet Issued by Rector
Ahlwardt the Jew batter from Dresden, on
last Tuesday, will lead not only to an examin
ation ot him, but also to a Oovornmont investi
gation ot his charges ngaltst the celobrated
Jewish gunmakcrs. the Ludwlg Lcuwe Com
pany. Tho pamphlet is tho bitterest produc
tion of the anti-Jew crusade In Germany. Its
charge?, moreover, are so speclflo that, despite
tho source, they cannot be Ignored by the Gov
ernment Tho title of the pamphlet Is: "Now Revela
tions About Jewish Guns." In his Introduc
tion Ahlwnrdt says that tho Ludwig Loowe
Company have suppllod the omplro with hun
dreds of thousands of worthloss rifles, and to
do this corrupted soldiers, non-oommtssloned
and commissioned officers, and army arms In
spectors. As a result, ho says, the lrnporial
Government has been defrauded of moro than
12.000,000 marks. Ahlwardt says that he ob
tained the dotnlls ot tho swindlo from a high
Btato ofllclnl. nnd that he docidod to mako
them publlo in the lnterost of Germany's honor
only after hearing that tho Government had
ordered from tho Loewes all the new machine
guns for the navy.
Tho Loewe factory was established by Lud
wlg Loowe. some time membor of the Belch
stag, who died In 1837. The prosont head of
the oompany is his brotbor, Isldor. Tho cen
tral factory Is In the Uollmonnstrasse. Ber
lin, and there are branches In tho Gltschnot
strasse and in the suburb Martinlk-Endfeldo.
Ahlwardt's disclosures concern only the last
named branch, and he leAves tho investigation
of the other factorlos. as he says, to tho Gov
ernment. Until recently. Ahlwardt says. Director
Barthelam assisted Isldor Loewe. but a short
time ago ho disappeared, and is said to have
died mysteriously. When tho Government re
quired that tho new gun model 88 be made as
spoedlly as possible, the Loewos got an ordor
for 425,000. The separate parts of theso rifles
were made In tho Hollmannstraase and
Gitschnelstrasse fnctorles and were finished
and put together and tested in the Martlnlk
Endolde factory. Tho contract was given in
1800 and the latest date for delivery was July
1, 1802. The last bated was delivered on Jan.
18 last, and were In fact ready last Novomber.
Tbe price of th rifles was 58 marks each.
The profit on each was 30 marks, or on all
Although tho Government organized an
elaborate system ot control, swindling was
carrlodon at every turn. Ahlwnrdt says. The
three Government gunsmiths appointed to
supervise the manufacture of tho rlfloa, re
ceived monthly bribes of 00 marks each,
lived on the premises, and were kept full ot
liquor: a special watch had to be kept for
certain army offloers chargod with super
vision, because they wero too honest to be
tampered with. Whenover they appeared.
Ahlwardt says, word was given to hldo the bad
work and bring nut the show pieces. Ahlwardt
names Lieut-Col. Kuhno. director of the gun
faotory in Bpandau, hb the chief swlndlor, and
says that he cooperated with tho Loewes in
bribing tho Inspecting gunsmiths andlndo
colvlng the revising officers. Gunsmith
Schleicher otSpandaurefusod toaccopt bribes,
and repeatedly reported the Irregularities of
the Loewos to his superiors, but thoy told him
to hold his tongue. Inspoctor of 111 Hob
Klrsch, upon arriving at 8pandau. Ahlwardt
says, was bought by the Loewes. and ho mark
ed everything " good." For every rlflo thus
passed Dlreotor KQhne, Ahlwardt says, re
ceived 50 pfonnlgo. or a total of 212,500 marks.
KQhne offered the Inspector ot Rlfloa flvo
pfennigs on oach rifle and tho latter. Ahlwnrdt
says, accepted the odor at first but aftorward
backed out saying that he preferred a sure
thing, and would thorefore tako 180 marks
monthly from tho Loewes as his share.
Tho sights of tho new rifles are ot suoh bad
material. Ahlwardt says, that thoy became
loose Almost Immediately after tho rifles woro
distributed. Tho barrels aro dangerously
weak. In fact, says Ahlwardt nearly all tho
