perial Secretary Von liocltlclior.
Dr. Von lloedtker and Editor Grles
man A Dispatch ltoat to Turkey.
Berlin, Nov. 2-1. The pending reforms In
the old age Insurance measures have led to
a squabble between Dr. Von Bocttlchcr,
Imperial Secretary of Statu for tlic In
terior, and Dr. Von Boedlker, president of
the Imperial Insurance office, in which
Dr. Grieseman. editor of the North German
Gazette, Is aUo involved.
Dr. Von Bocdlkcrhasproposed alterations I
lu the old-ape insurance law which are op
posed by Dr. Von Boetticher. Dr. Gricse
man published Dr. Boediker's plans In his
paper prematurely at the same publishing
an artkleapplaudingthemasrcfornis which
were likely to be approved by the Govern
ment. Dr Von Boetticher became enraged at
this, ami as 11 consequence Dr. Von Boed
lker, after a stormy interview with the
minister of the interior, obtained several
weeks' liave of absence, ostensibly on
account of illness, and is now recruiting
his officially impaired health aud await
ing the issue of his quarrel with Ills
Dr Grieseman Is also ill and has been
suspended from his functions as editor
oftbcNorthGermanGazette. TheRelchsan
zeiger, the official journal, states that
there is no prospect that the reforms pub
lished in the Gazette will become law,
nnd declares that they were made public
through grave indiscretion Dr. Griese
man is actually ill, the excitement caused
by the affair having brought on a stroke
of apoplexy, from which he is slowly re
covering. A soiree was held last iveek under the
direction of the Kev. Mr. Fry for the benefit
of the English and American Episcopal
Church here. It was a complete success
in every respect.
The Sonneberc Gazette challenges the ac
curacy of the accusations, made by Mr.
Dwlght J. Partello. United States consul
at Sonneberc, that German firms are mak
ing fraudulent customs declarations. The
Gazette esiecially attacks Mr. rartello's
statement in an interview with him pub
lished in a New York newsiiaper that upon
his return to Sonneberg his examinations
designed to prevent fraudulent declarations
will be more vigorously prosecuted and
more extensive in detail than heretofore.
The Gazette demands that Mr. Partillo
give the names ot the German firms that are
practicing the frauds he alleges, declaring
that general insinuations are grossly unfair
nnd ought not to lie tolerated.
The Berlin newspapers have taken up the
subject of Mr. Partello 's charge, and second
the demands of the Sonneberg Gazette that
Mr. Partello give the names of the German
firms against whlih he makes accusations.

detrimental to the work after a trial of six
months' duration, could be abandoned and
the existing system resumed.

The text ot the letter which Senator Wil
liam E. Chandler, of New Hampshire, two
days ago, addressed to President Cleveland
on the subject of the recent agreement of
railroad presidents, was made public last
night, as follows:
"Washington, D. C, Nov. 22, 1895.
"To the President:
"Sir I makecomplalnt to you and through
you td yourluterstatocoiumercecommlsslon
against the trust and jioollng agreement,
now nearly finished, or the eight American
railroad trunk lines and the one Canadian
lines controlling the traffic between New
lork city and Chicago.
"The agreement provides that every rail
road lu the combination shall make and
maintain the transportation rates pre
scribed by a board or managers representing
all the roads. This is a conspiracy in re
straint of trade and commerce under the
act or July 2, 1890.
"The agreement also makes certain that
all comiietltlon shall be abolished hi above
required by Imposing heavy fines upon any
offending road, which fines areto beapplled
for the benefit of the other roads. This Is
a division of earnings contrary to section 0
of the Interstate commerce law.
"This trust and lioollng agreement can
be annihilated as provided by explicit
existing laws of the United Stales, (1)
by Injunction from the courts, (2) by an
order of the Interstate commerce commis

dividuals signing the same.
"It can also easily be stopped by a
vigorous appeal from you to Mr. J.Plerpont
Morgan, whose power over the nine gov

as it was over the bond syndicate.

Both Sides to Be Heard on the
Bond Bill Question.
Home Further Considerations For
Those Who Will l'nrtlcliiuto In the
Friendly Fight Where tho Pre
cincts Will He Rules For the Con
tent and Qunllf lent Ions of Vuterw.
There will be one more week for reflec
tion for those who will avail themselves
ol mic opportunity or voting on the bond
bill In The Times ballot boxes. These
boxes will be in place till-, morniog at thirty
five precincts within the limits or tin. .im
proper and will be reminders of the pro-
,- uiu uui.il uexi Aionoay morning
when the balloting will begin.
The voters of the District win be ad
vised specifically lu due lime of what will
constitute u qualified voter, and also on
the main points which his vote, yea or
nay, will affect. The vole is taken to find
the preponderance of sentiment in general
terms on these questions:
Do you think that the District should
b- bonded to pay fur u now system
of Mvverai;o and for street exten
sion and Improvement,,?
Do you think t tint , should n liond bill
pass, nny of tin money realized
from the sale of theso bonds should
bo expended In Improving private
real cstmo holdings outside tho city
proper and remote from the great
lxidy of tiix-pnyers?
The most rabid supporter of the bond bill
will have the same advaiitare n tho mn.f
violent opponent of the bill as to the Issues
above stated.
H tho bill passes with the bond issue at
$7,500,000 the total annual Interest will
be, at 3 per cent, 522.1.000 and It will be
well to remember that the Congressional
committee are not agreed as to whether the
government should, or Miould not, pay hair
of this amount.
If it Is possible to pass such a bill it Is
Just as likely that the new scheme for a
i,uuu,oooissueofbiiiiisfoiild go through.
In whkh case tho Interest would be $360,
000 annually, the payment of which Is to
bo made Just as Congress may specif v.either
wholly or partly by the I)itrkt.
All those, who are In favor of Ihe si hemes
proposed can say so In The Times boxes
Just as well as any place else, nnd with a
great dedl better effcit should they have a
majority, and. If they have a majority, they
willsce that fact In The Time. Those who
are against the bill or who would favor it
if amended In a rational manner will also
have tholr say, and If they are defeatevl
The Time will say so.
The boxes may be seen today at the Tol

meeting of the Irish National Alliance
was held tonight in the Grand Opera House

der. He also paid a tribute to the mem
ory of Allen Larkin aud O'Brien, the Man
chester martjrs. Ex-Congressman John
F. Finnerty, ot Chicago, was the orator
of the evening.
Mr. Finnerty compared the condition
of America before the revolution will, that
of Ireland, and said that the sympathies
of the two countries were theTamc, but
that their opportunities were not equal.
He stated to the reply of the editorial
criticisms Ihat hud been passed upon the
new movement that irishmen were not
yet In the field and should not be looking
for sympathy from foreign countries until
they were actually fighting.
"If we are not yet m the field," said
he, "we Intend to lie as soon as we can
get there." There was great cheering
at this remark.

London, Nov. 24 The representative
ot the United PreSBin Constantinople, tele
graphing under dateof yesterday, says that
advices rrom Marsovan, bearing date of
November 22, show that the American
College at that place is now carefully
protected by the authorities. This con
dition of affairs Is no doubt due to the
energetic representations that have teen
made to the Porte by the Hon. A. W.
Terrell, the American minister, tvho has
been indefatigable In his attempts to
secure the safety of American citizens and
their property wherever located In the
Turkish dominions.

that the promise made bv the authorities
to return to the Armenians as much as
possible of tl.e property tt.ey la-.t during
the troubles there is of no value whatever,
no attempt Lcrag made to keep It.
