Sept. 18. There promise Ho be a lull far a time In the scries of ovents that rank a decorative politics, of which the German Em- I pemr Is tho riilcf exponent and patron. The I press and publlo of Germany lUolf. as well aa j of oilier countries, are beginning to raise awk- ! r. ward questions about the moaning of tho chlot features of a recent gorgous scries of royal visit. It is iolntcd out that rant military dls plays Invariably accompany a royal exchange of hospitality. Not only bo, but the mors recent army nmmruvrcs hare been highly theatrical. Toe description of soma of these latter orents has been positively silly, aa far as thor related to practical campaigning. It la common, talk in Berlin that tho.ofilcors of the German Army ace unable to conceal tbelr astonishment at the extraordinary plans developed, plana which even novices are ablo to see are beyond tho pos sibilities of actual war. Gen. Von Haslcr, one of the best soldiers of Germany, is reported to havo exclaimed at ono point of the recnot manoeuvres: "If these tac tics were attempted on a battlefield I really don't know who would remain alive to bury the dead." Another pertinent point has boon raised by the .Nete "rue I'rttit, Vienna's principal journal. It says: "It Is acknowledged and nationally recognized that tho object of the Triple Alliance Is the malntcnanco and con firmation ot peace, whilo the dual alliance has the same end In view. This has boon solemnly proclaimed at Ilomlmrg, as woll as at Peter kaf, nd there only remains between the tvo alliances a noblo emulation as to which shall contribute mast to conllrm peace It is Itraage that under these circumstances not the slightest reference is m ado In any quarter to disarmament, the reduction ot hugo armies, and tho diminution of the military burden.' Tho Xtuc Freit Preue goes on to lay that England, Russia, France, and Ger many continue to build men-of-war, extend naval harbors, and everywhere demands are made for an increase of the nary- There la, at th same time, no reduction In tho land force. Germany has Introduced a new description of ordnance, and, following this example, the ar tillery will be renewed In all the countries at enormous cost, Nevertheless, in splto ot tho conscription and constantly increasing mate rial sacrifices, tho opposition between the army and people has not disappeared, a circum stance which U more marked In Germany than elsewhere. What most puzzle students of decorative politics just now is tho significance ot Em peror William's effective attentions and com pliments to the Duke of Cambridge at tho re cent manoeuvre. Soma persons are Inclined to think It meant an olive branch to tho Eng lish royal family and England generally; or, perhaps, it was merely intended to offset tho rrancc-Ruaalan Jubilation and was an Intlma usa that Germany could be m good terms tth Great Britain If she chose. At all events, , tot Emperor's attentions were rather embar retailing'" to" Uw doughty Duke. Fox Instance,.

Indignation continues general In financial circles that the directors ! of the Bank ot England should have consented m "to make a bow to; bimetallism," which is Berlin's interpretation of the governors' ac tion. Two brief comments in to-day's journals ' show that even tho reason of courtesy to tho ' United States, which is believed to be tho sols ssetlvs ot the empty proposal. Is deeply re seated. The Mall saysi "It is a long time slnoo tha old lady of Threadneedle Street has aroused &s conservative and iiwawetai Instincts ot her clients so sharply a in the matter of holding cas-tuth ot the reserro In silver. Doubtless , Utile Intrlnsto harm would bo done if the bank consented to keep a fifth ot the reserve in sil ver; but it would offend the unblmetalUzed Britisher grievously to think that this waa done solely In the interests of a few American sil ver miners. Any commercial concession to a coutry that keeps a Dtngley tariff would Just bow npset the digestion eren of a workhouse saute on this side of the water." The CArtmfclc puts it: "We hope the dt rectors of the Bank have taken warning- by the chorus of anger and disapprobation at their feeble little nibbllngs at bimetallism. Practically the Bank has made no promise to kittle away the gold reserve; or rather, it hu Imposed condi'ions which make the sub stitution of silver highly improbable it not ln PMtlblo. But if so, why make the offer at sill To please America! But America will not be pleased when she finds how empty, and Indeed tncandld, Is the form of words being used at aer expense.

It Is perhaps becauso it is getting so desporato that antagonism to tho United States U growing stronger and is to somo extent encouraged by tho attltudo of tho Government. An unfavorable construction Is put upon the most trilling acts of Gen. Wood ford. Thore is even unfavorable comment upon the fact that he has decided to live at a hotel I for four months, on the pretext that be re I quires tiruo to select a houso to suit his family. This Is interpreted to moon that he knows that his instructions are likely to load to a rupture, and ho wants to be able to dopart without dim culty. Publlo Insults to America are becoming very common. The Imparcial, tho principal Journal of Madrid, printed a leader on Thursday In the form of an apocryphal letter from the Sultan of Morocco to President MoKlnloy, begging him to communicate the secret how he manogoa to escape the consequoncea of American outrages on Spain in Cuba while he, the Sultan, is fre quently compelled to pay for outrages by tho 111(1 plrotoa. The following is tha conclusion ot the egregious document: "Why do Christ Inns say our people are bar barians, whilo thlno are civilized. If our subjects tll-trent tho men of other nations wo pay indemnities. It thy subjects do tho namo thou loosest not the strings of thy purso. Which Is tho civilized natloul "The strength of man,' saltu the Koran, is In his Justice and mercifulness.' Are thy shopkeepers stronger than our Kabylosl Hast thou more wealth, that thou dost not pay what thou oweatt But we pay even that which we do not owe. We dcslru that thou&ircst us the secret of thy laws and regulations. The Holy Book salth The unrighteous mau gocth on hta way with case, but his end Is In hell.' Wo are Informed that thou goes thither speedily. We wish thee a cheerful heart on the way." According to despatches printed here an of ficial denial has been given to the Washington report of the plan ot campaign devised there for use in the evont ot a war with Spain. It la evident that there Is somo delicacy on your sldo In referring to tho contingency which everybody in Europe who has given thought to the matter regards as near. That delicacy Is not shared by Spain. People there talk of such a war as virtually inevitable, and it is beyond a doubt that the Government has been ma turing a Spanish plan of campaign whatever Washington has been doing or forgetting to do. For a month past there have teen repeated meetings at San Sebastian and Madrid ot the naval and military officers who presumably constitute the council ot war. The polite thing is to say that these war experts met to talk ot tho affairs ot Cuba and the Philippines, but the fiction Is well understood. The abiding anxiety ot the Spanish Govern ment Is to float a big loan before the complete success ot the Cuban rebellion or war with the United States closes all hands. That money must be obtained somewhere is undeniable, for revenue is falling and expenditure increasing every week. The tpowerful syndicate ot French financiers who are the main supporters of Spanish credit are getting tired ot the stupendous and costly task ot fighting the bears on every European bourse. But it Is impossible for them to aban don the struggle at this moment. The Queen Regent does not deceive herself. She has lately been given to flta of depression and of weeping over her dot. It is even said that she humbled herself to the Pretender Don Carlos by sending one of her Austrian relatives to beg him not to etart a civil war at the mo ment when Spain may have to fight others tor her honor and perhaps her existence. Don Carlos is said to have Irepulsed these overtures with insulting words. lie is talking big again Just now, but it is Inconsistent with his record to convert words Into action aa long as there is the remotest chance of failure. He, too, believes In the certainty of a war with the United States arising from the recognition of the Cuban republic, and he is waiting until the country Is beaten and ruined, when he will brace himself to the point of playing the rolo at savior ot Spain.

The floating dock bought by the Spanish Government in London and for which $000,000 has been paid by the Spanish Treasury, is now a perplexing problem for the Spanish authorities here. The dock has been found to draw too much water for the bay ot Havana, and so a dredging machine has been ordered by cable from a Spanish agent in New York, with instructions to send it Immediately "at any cost." This cost is estimated at $100,000. Everything has been thrown Into confusion here by the New York agent's answer that there are several classes of dredging ma chinery; that It is almost impossible to find a machine in so short a time capable ot dredging the boy of Havana to the depth required by the floating dock, and finally, that in order to buy the right kind of machine It is necessary to know the nature of the bottom of the bay. This last question cannot be answered here without investigation. Since Havana Jwas founded in the sixteenth century, no one has ever dredged the bay. : To construot a machine as the circumstances require the agent says further that six months is the least time required In the United States by manufacturers. Experts declare also that the dredging will take another six months and will cost 1O0$OO. Gen. Weyler, who wanted the floating dock to help the Spanish navy In case of Immediate wartwlth the United States does not know what to do in the face of this disagreeable dilemma.

Tho young woman says no explanation Is given by the oracle, but bs became dumb a fortnight ago. She has a peculiar theory of her own. Her In spiring genius has repeatedly told her that the restoration of royalty In France is ths objeot ot his mission, and has announced a series of events wblob will lead to the accession of the future Kins'. He Is, therefore, In her opinion, quietly awaiting the coup which will precede these occurrences. The prophetess bases her argument on the fact tbst a succession of com paratively trifling events which were to happen before the famous coup have already come to pass. The precise nature ot the coup Is a matter of guesswork as far as the profane are concerned. But for her part Mile, Couesdon declares that she has no fear for herself, and Is only anxious about her relatives. A NevslUt at the Bsaal ar laa Church. fpntal Catl Ijtmaleh to Tax 80s.

Third avenue and Twelfth street wnt ths scene ot a riot last night, during wnlch a mad dened crowd of Socialists tried to lynch the grlpmsn of a cablo car which had run down and killed a little girl. Only the prompt and courageous action ot a number of policemen saved the man from his Infuriated nssalla ts. Whon tho cry "Lynch the grlpmanl" went up a hundred men rushed forward to exe cute the threat. Tho police beat them back wjth their clubs and drawn revolvers, but they wore so Insistent that before ho was lodged In n police station the rosorves from the Fifth street station had to be called out to beat back tho mob. Tho victim of tho cable car was Frieda StelTen, the 4-year-old child of John Stoffcn, who lives at 101 Third avenue. Tho man whoso blood the mob wantod ts Michael Kacgan of '-'1U9 Isling ton avenue. Frieda was standing on tho porch of her home at nbout 10 o'clock watching tha moving spcctmlo on tho struct. Down Third avenuo about this timo came a parndo of Socialists. A drum corps was at their head, and the nolso of the inuslo and the glittering lights the paradcrs boro greatly ox cited the little glrh She ran down tho steps and started to cross the street. A cablo car was going uptown, and the child saw It. Sho wulted for It to pass and then she darted forwnrd. Standing on the corner was Policeman Brick wedell of the Fifth street station. He had seen the child waiting for the uptown car and ho had seen her start again on her way, but he had also board a warnlnir clang from the bell ot a down town car. fc In an instant ho realized the little one's peril. Ho sprang into the street and ran as fast aa ho could after the eirl. When he was within two feet of her she was already on the track In front of the approaching car. Reaching far over be caught her by the skirt and tried to pull her back, Friedagave apanle stneken tug to escape from the hand that would have saved her. The petticoat tore, she fell for ward, and the car wheels crushed her life out. cutting her in two. Brickwedell was so close that the car struck him and knocked him backward to the ground, He was stunned for the moment, but what was happening soon brought him to his feet. The Socialists in the paroite had seen the little girl go down In front of ths car. In an Instant dozens of men seized It and lifted the wheels from her body. A priest stepped for ward from the crowd, but his services were as useless as those of the ambulance sur eon who arrived a few minutes later from Bellevue Hospital. The child was dead. When the Socialists saw this their anger turned upon tho grlpmsn. " Lynch hlml" "lynch the grlpmanl" some one cried, and It seemed as though the whole parade echoed theory. They sprang upon the car. Five big fellows sought the front end where Korean stood. They grabbed him by the shoulders. He offered no resistance except to cling to his brake handle. He was white with fear. "Throw him off!" the men on the groundkept yelling, as they reached up and tried to help the men who held tho irrinman, and it looked mighty black for Koegan. Bat by tblatlme Brickwedell was on his feet. He beard the angry erica of the mob and he fought his way to the gTlpman's side. Once on the car, he drew his revolver and ordered the five men off the front platform. They hesitated a moment. "Gat off." shouted the policeman, "or I'll have to shoot." The men obeyed, for they saw he meant what he said. But there were others who were crowdlngforward anxious to take the live men's places. Brickwedell held his pistol In one hand and with the other ho pounded on the dash board with his night stick. ICeegan cowered behind him. the clatter of the club brought Policeman Von Shlsten to Brickwedell's assistance. A mo ment later Policeman Blnmel and Detective Sergeant McCarthy, who happened by. Joined tho other two, and for a time they awed the crowd. Keegan was ordered to run the car down to Fifth street. The policemen wanted to arrest him, but thoy did not daro try to take him to the station house on foot The grlpmsn gladly obeyed their orders. The car was rushed down Third avenue, with a thousand people in front and behind and around It, a 1 yelling and curs ing the grlpman. The Socialists who organ the demonstration had been Joined by hundreds of others, who were Just as eager as thoj to wreak vengeance on Keegan. At Fifth street the policemen stopped the car and took their priso er off. Surrounding him and with drawn revolvers they marched along Fifth street to First avenue, where the station bouse la All this time the mob was growing larger and larger. It was growing angrier, too. for the nearer they came to the lock-up the more threatening were their crlos. As the little narty of pollce mon reached the corner of First avenue, and was Just turning to go up the steps ot the station bouse, some one oallod out: " Take him away from them. Coma on. Let's take blm awayl" There was a rush from behind, nnd the men in front were fairly hurled upon the prisoner and his defenders. Inside tho station Sergeant Place, who was at the desk, had heard the roar of the mob as they came down the street Ho rang up the reserves. They tumbled downstairs and sprang Into the strcot with uplifted clubs. The crowd fell back snd the prisoner was hustled up the steps and the doors of the station closed. Tbocrowd hung nround for time, but the superior force awed them, and tbey finally moltod away. Tho body of the little girl was carried by the father to his house, where It now Is. COZ. JOIIX B.

The Porte's final promptitude In signing the treaty la ascribed to tho Impossibility of further maintaining the army In Thessaly, owing to the great Increase of sickness among the troops. ,It Is understood that tho strateglo frontier established by tho treaty gives to Turkey the village of Kontsofllanl, from which tho raid of Ethnlke Hetalria (the Greek National brother hood) Into Macedonia was made, which raid was tho Immediate cause ot the war.

He writes: "While at tho Brit ish Association meeting in Toronto I -exhibited a selsmogrsm which bad been forwarded from my station on the Isle or Wight This was the record of a large earthquake, the duration ot which had been three hours. From the general character ot the diagram, and because the pre liminary tremors had a duration ot thirty min utes, I suggested that the centre of the disturb ance was In or near Japan, and, if so, originated thereon Aug. 0 about 0:00 A.

Capt Snow of Yokohama in a letter dated Aug. 3, says: "'While I am writing a heavy, slow earth quake Is going on. It Is now 0:14 A. M.'

Therefore the time the earthquake took place was at least five min utes earlier than noted by Capt Snow." A ROUTE UXDER TUB SEA. Revival af the srheme to Blc a Tnaasl from Scotland I Ireland. SpiHal Cablt DtipatcK to Tax Bex. London, Sopt 18. Th project ha been re vived this week of tha construction of a tunnol betweon Scotland and Ireland. The Idea, once regarded as visionary. Is now admittedly prac ticable as an engineering feat but few people bellevo there Is the slightest prospect ot mak ing It a commercial success. Successive Gov ernments have been ssked to undertake the work ss a national enterprise, irrespective of paltry pecuniary considerations, but have In variably thrown cold water upon the enthu siasts. The latest estimates put the length of the tun nel at twenty-five mlloa, the period ot construc tion ten or twelve years, und the cost 13,000, 000. Those figures are largely fanciful, for nothing can be said until the prelimi nary boring and soundings have been made, and even then, if those operations promised success, It would bo necessaey to spsud 91,000,000 more to sink a shaft; and drive a hoadlng In order to make the tests complete. The trouble Is that there Is not sufficient pub llo spirit tn Great Britain and Ireland to provide 7(5,000 oven for tho first modest experimental work, and tho Government will not even lend the inonov.

Into the boats bor twenty-five men crowded, each grasping a lifebuoy, and waiting not for food or baggage. This hasto was rendered Im perative, becauso the bunker coal had taken fire and the hull was rapidly breaking asunder. Scarcely hod thoy left tho sldo whon tho boilers blew up, toarlng tho decks to plows and separating the hull Into two parts, tho stern jmrtton sliding back Into deep water and sinking to tho bottom. The boats kept together all night Tho ill-clad stokers and seamen suffered severely from tho ex posure, and It was with difficulty that the boats kept afloat as thoy wero flllod by tho sees, constantly keeping all hands busy balllmr out the water. This forenoon a mall steamer sighted and rescued them. They were drifting seaward, and, had they missed her, would probably hsvo perished. At 7:30 last night at Groat Islnnd, thirty-five miles north of here, tho steamer Eugenic, a Norwegian tramp sixteen days from Shields for Loulsburg, In ballast, also went ashoro. running Into a break between cliffs 200 feet high. If she had struck fifty yards on either side she would have shattered horself against the sheer wall and sunk with all hnnda In deep water; but as It Is she lies In a natural cradle, her hot torn punctured by numberless rocks and her bows stove In. Her boatswain, at great risk, made his way up tho steep cliff with a slight line attached to his body; to this a heavier one woe fastened, and by Its help the crow of twenty-two and Capt Hansen's wlfo, who was on board, were got to the top. Had tho soa been coming In thoy would all havo perished bofore they could get there. All nlgbt thoy spent without food or shelter, but this morning signalled tho main land and were taken off. Both vessels are complete wrecks, and It is fortunate that no lives were lost Much alarm was felt here this forenoon when reports arrived of boats being found broken up. It was feared the Rbodera's crew had perished, and the British warship Buzzard was about sailing for the scene when It was found they had been rescued. WAXTED TOR A ZOXDOX ROBBERT.
