Turkey's Dissolution the Sign for
a Gigantic Conflict.
At- the- Lord Mayor's Banquet the
ISrltLsli Premier Gives Cautions Ut
leraiicefo Ills View soft heSIt nation.
Great Powers Forced to Act Joiiitly
by the Necessities, of the Chmj.
Loudon, Nov. . TbeU6ual lianquct given
by the Lord Mnyor, upon his installation
in office, took place tonight In the Guild
JInll, the occasion being the taking over
of the chief magistracy of Uie city of Lon
don, liy Sir Walter Henry Wilkin, the suc
cessor of Sir Joseph Renals. It is the
custom for the priiuc minister aud otlier
members of the cabinet to attend the ban
quet, and for the prime minister to map
out, more or less distinctly, the programme
of the government. The greatest interest
centered In tonight's banquet, as it was
known thai Lord Salisbury would be pres
ent and that he would throw some light
ou Great Britain's foreign relations and
policy, more particularly the course that
would be followedln the case of Turkey,
tv Hose contumacious beha lor has led to
rumors of war.
When the Lord Mayor toasted the'mlnls
ters Lorfl Salisbury arose to respond.
He touched briefly upon affairs in China
and Japan.
"Depend upon it," he said, '"whatever
may happen in that region, be it in the
way of war or the way of commerce, we
are equal to any competition, that may be
opposed to us, and may look with equal
absolute equaulmity on the action of any
persons vho think to exclude us from that
fertile and commercial region or who im
agine that if we are admitted they can
Lest us in the markets of thu world.
(Cheers). I should be sorry if we felt
qndue sensitiveness in the matter.
Continuing, he said that there is another
part of the world where matters are not so
peaceful as he hoped they are in the far
cast. He recalled the action In Slay last of
the Brllhli, French and Russian ambassa
dors at Constantinople, and declared that
It was designed to protect the Armenians,
whose terrible and deplorable sufferings
had moved the feelings of the British nation
to their base.
The demand? made on Turkey by the
three powers had been substantially ac
cepted by the Sultan. He had seen some
where, under n great name, the assertion
that the Sultan had won a great victory
over the British. It could not be called a
Tii lory. Lord Salisbury declared, because
he had given the British all they wanted.
There had beeu an impression abroad that
he himself had added a demand to those
made in May, requiring something in the
nature or an international commission.
Tnat was a great mistake. He had never
added to the demands. He uid otter as a
substitute, demands as a simpler way of
obtaining the same end; that, if it was
preferreu, the present Mohammedan ma
turnery siiould continue and be supervised
by a mixed commission. The demands of
the embassies were substantially that a
proportional number of Christian em
ploves should be added to the executive
of trie-province containing a large number
ot Armenians.
lie did not contend that his proposal
was the better. The Sultan prelerrcu the
other proposal and this naturally fell to
the grouud. The reason that he preferred
to be rid of his proposal to substitute
Christian lor Moslem of fleers was his great
horror ot the powers appearing In these
cases as partisans of one rcligiou rather
than of another. That would be ex
ceedingly dangerous. He remarked that
the Queen of Great Britain rules over more
Mohammedans than the Sultau, and that
the British government Would have been
neglecting its duly if it allowed itself to
appear as a religious partisan in govern
ing bo vast an empire.
The government bad no otlier duty than
to show absolute impartiality. Its desire
was to do entire justice so that Christians
and Moslems should observe each others'
rights and pursue their own industries in
confidence and peace.
Continuing, Lord Salisbury said: "I
should have been glad it our proposals
could have divested the negotiations of
any appearance ot partiality and could
have assured our Moslem fellow subjects,
who are among the most loyal and orderly
subjects of the Queen, that tbey may rely
on the Imperial government being abso
lutely Impartial."
"With regard to the result of the ne
gotiations ir the reforms are carried into
effect they would give the Armenians
every prospect that a nation could desire
prosperity, peace, justice and safety to
life and property. But will they be car
ried out? If the Sultan can be per
suaded to give Justice to the Armenians
it will not signify what the exact nature
of the undertaking may be. If he will
not heartily resolve to do justice to tliem
the most Ingenious constitution that can
be framed will not avail to protect or as
sist the Armenians. Only through the
Sultan can any real, permanent blessings be
conferred upon his subjects.
"What If the Sultan is not persuaded?
I am bound to say that the news reaching
us from Constantinople does not give
much cheerfulness in that respect. You
will readily understand that I can only
speak briefly on such a matter. It would
be dangerous to express the opinions that
are on my lips lest they Injure the cause
of peace and good order, which, above all
things, I have at heart.
"But supposing the Sultau will not give
these reforms, what is to follow? The
first answer I should give is that above
all treaties, all combinations of the powers,
in the nature of things, is Providence.
God, if you please to put it so, has de
termined that persistent and constant mis
jovernment must lead tho government
which follows it to Its doom, and while
I really admit that it is quite possible
that the Sultan, if he likes, can govern
with justice and can be persuaded, he is
not exempt any more than any other poten
tate from thu law that injustice will bring
the highest one on earth to ruin.
"It is not only the necessary action of the
law of which I speak, on which we may
rely. There Is the authority of the great
powers. Turkey Is in the remarkable po
sition that she has now stood for half a
century, mainly because the powers re
solved that for the peace of Christendom
It was necessary that she should stand.
The danger is that if the Ottoman empire
falls it would not be merely a danger that
would threaten its territory. It would
be the danger that the Are there lit would
spread to other nations, involving all that
Is mo6t powerful and civilized In Europe
In a dangerous conflict.
Lord Salisbury deprecated indulging in
the allusion tabt some single power would
escape the treaty and try to settle the
question in its own manner. He believes
that the powers were never tnorc disposed
than now to stand together by the European
system they had themselves devised.
Danger existed that the Sultan should
imagine lljat under pressure of necessity
the adhesion of the Powers was such that
no abuses in the Ottoman Empire would
ever receive puulshment. That was a great
Lord Salisbury declared that he be
lieved that the powers were thoroughly
resolved to co-operate in everything con
cerning Turkey. How they would act
was not for him to prophesy. He did
not know what contingencies might arise,
but no man would say that it was Im
possible for them to arise. They might
become, weary of the cry of suffering that
goes up in their ears and find other substi
tutes for that which does not fulrill the
Jiopes entertained forty years ago. There
was inererore nothing in the concert of
Uie powers to console those who would
perpetrate iiiisgovernment or to silence
the voice of those who would impress on
thcOttoman rulers as the one burning neces
sity of the hour that they give the common
blessing of good government to thoseunder
them. (Cheers.)

Nebraska Sller Men Suy Last Elec
tion Wan No Fnlr Test.
Omaha, Neb., Nov. 9. An Interesting
question has arisen among Nebraska Dem
ocrats as a result of the recent election.
Ma honey, administration candidate for
supreme court, received 14,500 and Phelps,
silver man, 8,000 votes. Both went on
the ticket under the supreme court ruling
as Democrats. The silver men claim this
was unfair to their Interests and that
it was not a proper test.
The silver men suggest that the silver
question lie submitted to a primary elec
tion In Nebraska. If a majority of the
Dcmoirats of Nebraska are in favor of the
1G to 1 plant: in the next national conven
tion, silver men are to be entitled to the
delegation. If ihcmajori'of theDemocraU
ot Nebraska are In faSof ot the present
financial policy, then these Democrats are
to have a right to represent the State in
the national convention.
The silver Democrats assert that if
the gold men refuse to submit the question
to a primary election they will be stopped
from claiming to represent a "majority of
the Democratic voters. The gold standard
Democrats have little to say of tho sub
ject, asserting that the election results
Indicate clearly that the silver Democrats
are outnumbered two to one in Nebraska
and they think they have nothing to fear in
future contests.

Berlin, Nov. 9. The announcement of the
plans contemplated allowing Uie Reichstag
from the third day of December until
Christmas only a week of legislative ac
tivity, has created a feeling of mild
Under the circumstances a great many
members will not care to Incur the expense
and fatigues incident to making' the jour
ney from their homes to Berlin for the sake
of being present In the chamber for so
short a time, especially as nothing is known
as to the intentions ot the ministers to
introduce contentious measures.
It is probable, therefore, that the first
part of the session will be marked by great
difficulty in maintaining a quorum. All
important bills Introduced in -the interval
between December 3 and the Christmas
recess will be referred to committees pend
ing the resumption of the sittings of the
chamber In January.
The official press excuses the delay in
convening the Reichstag by the fact that
the Buudesrath has not yet decided upon
any legislative programme for the session,
but a better reason for the delay is Prince
Hohcnlohe's well-known distaste for all
business associated with theslttings uf the
Reichstag, he having a positive dislike for
even an occasional enforced attendance, as
well as the debates, the incessant party in
triguing, the official wining nnd dining, and.
in fact, almost everything connected, even
remotely, with parliamentary proceedings.
Concerning the plans of the government,
the budget, revision of the workingmen's
Insurance laws, a bourse reform bill and
a revision of the commercial laws con
stitute the part of the programme of the
ministers that is known to the public.
Among the estimates the navy budget
alone demands the blight increase of 534,
2.11 marks. The ordinary expenditure
allows for the construction ot one first
class Ironclad, three cruisers, one tor
pedo division boat, and eight torpedo
boats, for all of which the first Installments
are asked.
The utmost economy hns been observed
and it is certain that the budget will not
excite anybody. There Is one clement of
disturbance before the ministers, how
ever, and that is the resurgence of the
agrarian and bl-metallic agitation.
The Bi-metnlllc League held a meeting
yesterday and decided to demand that
Prince Hobcnlohe fulfill bis pledge to
arrange for the holding of an International
monetary conference, and as the first
step toward its fulfilment to negotiate
tbebasisof the conference wilh the govern
ments of the United States and France.
This bavjng been done, the Eruez Zeltung
announces, it Is the intention of the
agrarians to raise the question of the
formation of state granaries in which stocks
of cereals may be stored so as to prevent
fluctuations In the grain market.
The demands of the agrarians are des
tined to play a leading part in the session
and can be summcd.ip as comprising state
monopoly of grain, the transit of grain
to warehouses duty free, an Increase of
the sugar export bounties, and a further
Increase of Import duties npon most
articles of food.
The election by the Socialists of Dort
mund of Herr Leutgenau, editor of the
Dortmund Arbelter Zeltung, gives the
Socialists forty-seven seats in the Reichstag.
This was tho first election held since
the Kaiser appealed to the people to co
operate with the government against
socialism, and it is no wonder that the
Vorwaerts, thu leading Socialist organ,
exults over -the result and declares that
"this is the people's answer."
The count of the balloting shows that
Herr Luetgenau received 24.4G5 votes,
against 2 1,408 cast for the national Liberal
candidates who opposed him. The Centrists
held the balance of the vote, but under
the instructions of their party leaders they
abstained from voting, and the Socialist
candidate consequently owes his election
to the Centrists.
The fact that Herr Leutgenau was sent
to Jail for five months the day after
his election adds to the Importance of the
victory from a Sociallsttlc point of view.
Tho North German Gazette, comment
ing upon the election of Herr Leutgenau,
takes the Centrists to task for their passive
attitude and says that the endeavor to
overcome socialism is hopeless If feuds
between the political parti esof orderprevent
their co-operation against the common

It's a Scheme to Keep Sllser Sen
ators From Committees.
Salt Lake, Utah, Nov. 9. The statement
appearing In the press dispatches that
Eastern Republicans, prominent among
whom is Johu Sherman, have declared that
the United States Senate would nut bo
reorganized In 1S9G whether or not Utah's
Senators take their seats this winter, in
order to avoid a possible compromise with
the sliver men, aroused the ire of the
Western Republicans.
" Col. Isaac Trunibo, the" Western silver
champion, who will likely be one of the
"new Senators from Utah, said to a United
Press reporter that the declarations served
to forewarn and forearm the adherents
of the silver cause and while feherraan
and his co-workers might prevent a re
organization this winter, there would come
a season for retribution in J'J7, when
silver advocatesmlght nnite with the Demo
crats and retain tbe latter as chairmen of
the different committees.
"It is impolitic and unjust," he said, "for
any section of the parly to bulldoze an
apparent minority and flaunt their prowess
in the faceof ardent champions of the cause
of protection because they differ on tho
money question. The silver question bears
the same relation to the East that the tariff
does to the West. The West never really
needed protection for we are not manu
facturers, but for the benefit of the whole
country the Western voter has presented an
unbroken front for thirty yearj in beiialf of
Reiumieaniii. The East is not directly in
terested in silver, but for the advancement
of the entire country her people should be
even firmer advocates than the West.
"That is the view taken by us silver
men, and when we are to be oilracised
from the party because of our beliefs and
convictions, the dtree of ungratefulness
exhibited Is ouly equalled by Sherman's
heartless criticism of our martyred Presi
dent, James Garrield. Let the Republicans
of the East beware. We will submit to a
fair presentment fit our case before the
votersof theUnited Statesand Iu reconciled
to their decision, but our Influence can
never be stifled by political legerdemain
or gold bug Intrigue. Many more such
declarations will leave western Repub
licans without hope and drive them from
the party.
"I would also point to the fact that
Buch a result would likely throw the elec
tion next year into Congress, and if such
should occur, it would be impossible to
elect a Republican President, on a gold
platform, each State having but one vote,
thus giving thirteen out of the forty-five
votes to the silver 8tates. The silver men
today are in a better position and more
powerful In the United States than was the
Parncll party in England in 18S5, when it
overthrew an English mlnlstry'and placed
Gladstone in power as premier. These
matters should bo carefully considered by
our party leaders before making such rash
assertions as are credited to Sherman."

New London, Conn., Nov. 9. Latest
advices from steamer Puritan, on the
rocks at Great Gull Island, is that the ves
sel has small chance of getting off for
several days. She is hard and fast ou the
rocks and it Is said that liouiders project
through her bottom pretty well forward.
The Puritan is making little water this
evening and lies easy on Uie north side of
Big Gull. She is two feet out of water for
ward, witli four feet ot water at the stern,
the vessel lying east and west on shore
-The- passengers have only" words of
praise for the way they were treated while
on the boat
Competent vessel masters who have seen
the vessel say she will not be got off In
several days and tliat the task or floating
her will be a difficult one. She is very
close to where the steamer Draharu was
wrecked nearly a score of years ago and
where her bones were left because It was
impossible to float her.
A northeast gale would break up the
Puritan, so redoubled effort will be made to
float her before the prevailing wind can
shift, a hard northwester being the worst
possible condition In which the unfortunate

Mining Shares Craze Causes a
Collapse on Paris Bourse.
Kings, Brokers and Actrensen En
gulfed In Common Iluln Ilaron
Alphonse de Itothsohlld Tells tho
Minister of Flmuice what. Caused,
the Catastrophe. '
cSpeclal to The Times.)
(Copyrighted by James Gordon Bennett)
Pans, Nov. 9. Political events, though
these were of great importance, wera
eclipsed today by financial incidents, which
are assuming the proportions of a catastro
phe. The Paris Bourse was today like a
battlefield after tho defeat. Up to 2
o'clock nothing but the customary shouting
was to be heard. All was dull and quiet,
the public standing round the great liank
ers to watch their faces. The fact is that
if the crisis continues no one can tell what
will happen.
The number of banking houses that hava
closed their doors is very great, but tie
number of private persons who have been
ruined Is still greater. All classes of so
ciety were carried away by the mining
craze. The oldest actress of the Theater
Francaise is ruined. A former king has
been obliged to pay $4,000,000 through
a Jewish banker, who Is a friend of his.
A Smyrna speculator, who has ruled
the Bourse for five years, losi-i $23,
000,000. The head of an establishment
that is known everywhere loses 515,000,
000 and (lis eldest brother Is ald to be so
angry that he refuses to assist him in
carrying forward on the Bourse to tho
end of the month, which would entail a
still greater catastrophe.
However, this morning the finance min
ister summoned M. Verneuil, the broker,
and Baron Alphonse de Rothschild to ask
for their opinions. These gentlemen de
clared that the crisis was due to the
fact that thepeoplesold Turkish and French
securities to buy mining shares, and that
when they wished to sell their mining
shares they were unable to find purchasers,
and the crisis came.
Politics, however, have also inf let need
the crisis. The struggle Is not so much
one between radicals and moderates as
between the ministry actually in power
nnd the occult ministry framed by the
financiers, who are fighting their battle
j both In press and parliament a circum
I stance which renders the situation highly
j interesting to those who are behind. th
f scenes.
M. RILot was doomed last spring. He
was saved for a time by the Kiel eele-
t brations, but he allowed himself to fall
when besaw that theafrairs of theSonthern
railways were about to occasion fresh
parliamentary scandals. He had already
been oiaigcd to make the Panama affair
I. . n . .m ....... .. .
. iiut, iu mentor. oi i,yj, is caiieti
i "Premiere Charrette," and he had no
wish for a second.
M. Bourgeois accepted the office he had
not sought, and at first tried to form a
ministry of less radical tendencies. But
the syndicate I have referred to prevented
ail the moderates from taking part In the
combination, and so M. Bourgeois formed
a radical minlsuywith a polity ot henesty
and purification. He will have to contend
against all those who arc afraid of such
a policy.
The truth, however, is that 500 deputies
are honest; thirty-two are great financiers,
whose political career has no connection
with finance, but there remain about fifty
who are creatures of the syndicate, with
strong influence In the press, and this is
the clement that calls for purification.
The question, therefore. Is whether or
not the ministry will have time to effect
the work of purification before the syn
dicate sets its numerous influences to work.
The internal situation accordingly is not
promising, and neither Is the international
outlook, but the rumors that have been
circulated on the bourses ot Europe are
false. It was said that tbe Austrian army
was marching from Herzegovina, that tho
English fleet was steaming toward the
Bosphorus and that the Russian army was
marching upon Armenia. It is all false.
The truth Is that diplomacy is exerting
terrible pressure at Constantinople to set
tle tbe Turkish question and that for the
moment diplomacy alone Is being resorted
to, but no one in Europe can undertake to
say that a week later the situation will ba
the same. JACQUES ST. CERE.
