The size of England's nary can partly be appreciated by reading of the naval display ordered for the delectation of Emperor Will iam of Germany, now visiting his royal graudmama. A severe storm postpones the show till to-morrow. Other interesting ' news comes under the sea this week. tBY CABLE TO THE DISrATCH.' London, August 3. Copyright -Everyone is looking with his own eyes or through those of newspaper men at the proud little German Emperor and the tre mendous naval display that his grandma, Queen Victoria, has ordered out for him. Five miles of ironclads, three deep, is a sight to inspire respect, especially when flanked by nests of torpedo boats, gunboats, etc. England is feeling very fine over this, and we arc reminded in every possible key that this island can tackle and destroy any country, which is perhaps true, with one starred-and-striped exception. HAED TO BELIEVE, BUT TBTTE. It is almost impossible to believe, looking at the tremendous naval display, that be side these bhips England has scattered over the world a fleet bigger than that of any other country, but it is true. There have been lots of friendly demonstration between the Emperor and his grandmother's family not real, but supposed in some dark and mysterious manner to cement international alliances and help the welfare of the two great nations. Even round Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, tried to look as though he liked getting seasick to meet his imperial I nephew, whom he hates and whom he has ably described as a caddish little upstart; - .vOTiAM.Ji!TOTOT5-J.jOT7. T$nigtBalfour up to!rIi!cul'e,.BO that.th. All these goings-on, of courst, sy-:i 1 Tories fu'eene- ai and the IrUbTBecretary in Very little, for if Bismarck want virv to .j thrash this country he will not be kept back by the recollection of Grandmother Victoria kissing her descendant on both cheeks. This fact the weather seems to ap preciate, for it makes no effort at all to be agreeable. On the contrary, it is peculiarly nasty, and the show has been necessarily postponed till Monday. A terrific gale sprang up last night and raised snch a sea that the iron clads were obliged to steam up to their anchors, and with a little more wind pressure we might have had a new Apia disaster. A GBEAT STORM AT SEA. The wind abated comewhat at daybreak, but then torrents of rain fell, and continued jliour after hour incessantly. The sea ran to high that the steam pinnacles coming on Shore from tbe fleet were swamped. The haze became so thick that the folks on shore could not see tbe ships, neither could the admirals signal to the dockyard. Tens of thousands of people on board the great liners who had gathered to witness the display were not happy. Damp, over crowded, depressed, and unable to see any thing, they had nothing to make life even tolerable, and the heaving of these great ships at anchor gave them their only occu pation to pass away the time. NOT A PLEASANT TIME. On board the great Teutonic, White Star liner, the landlubbers were lying down be low in profusion, while those affected to a more limited extent availed themselves of the leeward bulwarks. Mr. Joseph Cham berlain, Mr. Childers, Sir Michael Hicks Beach, Mr. Douglass, the Conservative whip, who are on board this boat, were all more or less affected. It would not add much to the German Emperor's good nature if he knew which is true, though not announced here yet that Sir Morell Mackenzie is going to give up a portion of his autumn holiday to the preparation of his memoirs in connection with the late German Emperor. The book, when it does appear, will be called "Six Months' Residence at the Court of the Crown Prince and Emperor of Germany." Many VERT INTERESTING DETAILS affecting the reputation and illustrating tbe character of the highest personages in Prussia will be given, and the sensation caused by Sir Morell's book on Frederick tbe Noble will be a mere spark compared wilh the electric illumination which the work will shed on recent events affecting the house ol liohenzollern. j. uuuuBiauu an iuoreii maae aauy notes i every conversation in wnich he took part or at which he was present so that the labor which he has before him now is only of a lit erary character. Unfortunately for cotem porary journalists, the book will not be pub lished during the lifetime of the Empress Frederick. NOT EXACTLY PET NAMES. ' Another thing which will not please the German Emperor, should he chance to read it, which is not probable, in tbe loyal Lon don dailies, is the meeting held at the In ternational Socialist Club, Soho, to-night The meeting was convened to protest against the honors paid to the tyrant Wilhelm, the despot of Germany, who recently threat ened to shoot down their own brothers in Westphalia. There was a large attendance, including several ladies, who applauded the most bloodthirsty sentiments with unsexual ihiuiaei. Citizen Herr Skaer, who pre- sided, called the young Emperor "scoun drel," "hellhound," "assassin" and other uncomplimentary names, and concluded by volunteering to make the same speech in front of Buckingham Palace, if his com rades would support him. The suggestion was enthusiastically approved by sereral speakers, but it is not probable anything more will be heard of it. THE SHAH IN PARIS. HI. Immorality at the Table Shocks the French An Affection; Meeting; Why the Socialist Are Angry Real French Diplomacy. 1ST CABLE TO THE DISrATCB.l London, August 3. The Parisians are in the same state of excitement about the Shah as England was a fortnight before, only rather more so. It is needless to say they have discovered entirely new tales aboufhim, and that these are told with a cheerful frankness of disregard of news paper readers' moral welfare, which cannot be successfully emulated in an Anglo-Saxon community. What seems to have horrified tbe wise-eating Frenchmen most is the Shah's immorality in a gastronomic sense. When he eats to snit himself he has all put on the table at once. He olten begins "with a lot of peaches swimming in a sauce large ly composed of vinegar and pepper; he eats grapes with his roast, and has an entire lamD cut up to be boiled into soup for him with lots of onions, peas, etc. The Shah has proved that he is not proud. It is quite touching to read how he met King Dinah, another quaint potentate, who at home rules the Seneealese. but who on this occasion happened to be kicking bis heels in the ante-room of the Minister of Commerce. The African King was unusually gorgeous, being attired in sword and the second-hand and very highest embroidered raiment of a Catbolio bishop, which he had bouebt at auction. The Shah invited the King home, got him to point out his king dom on the map, traded photos with him, and asked him a great many questions. The Socialist papers are full of indigna tion at the French authorities for bowing down to a despot who at home has no re spect at all for the workingman or any other kind of man, and even some of the more conservative papers have cried out against the excess of civilitv lavished upon his Persian majesty bv Carnot and bis Cab inet Carnot is just the sort of man to en tertain the Shah, and he had the start in winning that monarch's favor, having been named Sadi, after the Persian poet There is a real diplomatio object back of all this fuss made in the Shah's honor by the French Government, namely, a desire to please Russia by following suit and doing; as much as possible to make the important Persian happy. - The Shah, during his channel trip, was fearfully ill, and so was the small favorite who goes about with him wearing a saber as long as himself. SET EYEEXBODX BT THE EARS. Lord Randolph Cnurchlll at It Once More A Week's Politics. BT CABLE TO TBE DISPATCH.: London, August 3. Lord Randolph Churchill has again been lecturing the Gov ernment on the error of its ways, and as usual, has set everybody by the ears. His Lordship advocated & programme of social and agrarian reforms which would have done credit to Charles Bradlaugh ' or Henry George, and suggested various changes it the system of governing Ireland which, if I ?J i M . , . , . c"meu "V""; """n nome ruie oy years. .a.:niosi simmtan'Musiy, cnamDer lain made a speech in ,whirn heheldjhe particula.. are far off from being comfort able just now. The Commons are still wrangling over the increased salary to the Prince of Wales, but the money will probably be TOted next week despite the stalwart radicals. Speak ing the other day at a private dinner party, Mr. Gladstone expressed, the opinion that the British court stagnates; that, he said, was the reason Londoners had taken much more interest in the royal grants question than the voters in the provinces. London ers saw more of the court's doings, and therefore were in a better position to form an opinion than the countrvmen. The Grand Old Man 'left London for Hawarden Castle to-day, and Parliament will probably see him no more this session. On the way he delivered a few speeches, and performed the ceremony ofopening a new bridge over the river Dee. AN ENTERPRISE OTERWEIGHTED. The Introduction of a Typesetting; Machine Rained bv Its Handlers. IBT CABLE TO TBS DISFATCU.l London, August 3. The English in vestor has been excited a good deal this week by an attempt to get 1,000,000 from him for the great typesetting machine which has been dubbed the linotype, and the public has been asked to subscribe the above named amount to make the thing go. but at the last moment it leaked out that one Cottam, a notorious promoter of bubble companies, is back of it Then it is shown that out of the 1,000,000 the promoters and venders take $820,000. Many papers con sequently go lor the company on one pre text or another. D. R. Cameron, memberfor Glasgow, who was vice chairman, declined to remain on the board, and now Louis Jennings, M. P., who is at present acting as jackal to Lord Randolph Churchill, also comes off the board. The linotype does not look "healthy at present, and the overweighting of this company is sure to have a prejudicial effect upon other new enterprises brough here from the United States, y A PRETTI PLUCKY PRIEST. He Captures a Couple of Desperate Burg lars, Though One Get Away. fBY CABLE TO THE DISrATCB.l London, August 3. A Franciscan mon astry in Dulwich has among its members a remarkably plucky man, Rev. Father Yin cent This energetic priest, a few nights since, on coming to post some letters found two burglars at the back of tbe monastry. He is light, and does not look strong, but he surprised the burglars considerably. He held one all the time, and as often as possi ble kicked the second, while waiting for the law. One burglar, who had been hammering him with a heavy stick while the other burglar was having his ribs squeezed, es caped. To-day the disappointed burglar and priest met at Lambeth Police Court AN INFANT TO BE PR0DD OF. A Little Girl of 4 Tears .Shaves Fire Men In Ilalf an Ilonr. tor CABLE TO TBE DISPATCH.! London, August 3. Mr. Wick, of Chelsea, is the father of a very rare infant of which he and Chelsea can both be proud. The infant's name is Nelly. It is 4 years old, and on Wednesday, backed by its father, it shaved five men inside of SO min utes, for a silver medal. Np medal was given to tbe men, who seem, however, to have deserved something. This precocious young woman did the job very neatly, with ten minutes to spare, taking about four minutes to a man. The men were picked out of a very stubby lot RECIPROCAL DUTIES Wonted by a Frenchman In Order to Have More Bordeaux Wine Drank In America Tinned Meat Men Relied Upon. IBT CABLE TO TUB SISrATCB. London, August 3. While in Paris this week I lunched with Armand La Lande, Deputy for La Gironde and ownerof numer ous important vineyards, among others Leo ville, Poy-Ferre. Monsieur La Lande, who is an extremely able man, is much inter ested in the development of Bordeaux, the region where he has made his fortune. He is working at a scheme which will interest, first, those in America who like good Bor deaux, and also a great many people in Chi cago and the West, whether they care for Bordeaux or not La Lande's idea, which he explained to me, and which he wished to make public in your columns, was to get the French Gov ernment to arrive at some understanding with that of the United States, by means of which duties on French wines entering America should be reduced, and in return the French legislation which prevented the entrance of American salt meats into France should be done away with. La Lande showed me a letter which he had written to the French Minister of Cus toms on this subject He points out that since 1850 the importation of French wines into the United States has fallen off four filtbs, despite the great growth of American population and wealth, and he does not be lietje that this is due in any way to the de velopment of the wine-growing industry in America, La Lande does not hope for the abolition of the duty on wines, but will strive, if en couraged in his Idea, to obtain a reduction of our duties so as to make them equal to those imposed in England, that is to say, 25 cents per gallon, wbetber in bottle or in bar rel, no matter what may be the kind of wine. La Lande points, out that this will very probably be a good thing for the American revenue. In 1860 French wines entering England paid 5 shillings and 6 pence per gallon; when' the duty was re duced so tremendously the consumption of French wine increased from 27,000 hectoli tres to 270,000 hectolitre, so that the Gov ernment, charging only one-fifth of the former duty, collected twice as much money. La Lande hopes that the influence of Americans interested in the -sale of tinned and salt meats may be sufficiently great to bring about this result TAB MAIBRICK MURDER TRIAL. Witnesses lor tbe Defense Sav Maybrick Always Teok Arsenic BT CABLE TO TDK DISPATCH.! London, August 3. Liverpool is full of the great murder trial which began there Wednesday. The scenes about the court have not been very pleasant, including, as they do, absolute battles between women for admission to the show which is to decide whether or no Mrs. Maybrick, an American, poisoned ber husband and shall hang. It is difficult sot to sympathize with the woman, even if she be guilty. She sits all day under a .legion of opera glasses, while brandy flasks are nipping in the air and impromptu lunches going on in various parts ot tbe court She had borne up bravely, and what is more, shows herself remarkably endowed with the instinct usually, strongest with women hr dress it always most carefully arranged, and her frizzes irreproachable. Tbe women In court apparently believs Mrs. Maybrick guilty, and that was the general impression among tbosj who have not come personally in contact with her. The defense beg'n examining its wit nesses to-day. Sir Charles Russell savin? he woul&provefthM-Mr.tMAybrjkbdeai. confirmed taker of arsenic' for years. A.j witness named Bateson, who lived with Mr. Maybrick in America from 1877 to 1881, Mariner Thompson, and a negro named Stanton, who was Mr. Maybrick's former servant', all testified that the deceased took arsenic habitually. A chemist testified that Mr. Maybrick had purchased "pick-me-ups" from him which contained arsenic. BOULANGER SOBERED SOMEWHAT. The Rebuff of the General at the Elections Ehrlnbs Ills Head. IBT CABLE TO TBE PISFATCB.1 London, August 3. The severe rebuff which Boulanger has just received in the French local elections has sobered the brave General considerably. His recent mani festo, in wh ch he attributes his disaster to treachery and petty ambitions, has more of wounded pride in it than good judgment When a man is whipped it does not interest his public to have him explain why. It is quite possible, however, that in tbe more important elections in September tbe Gen eral may have another flash of luck, and the enthusiastic individuals who a few days ago thought that Boulanger must carry every thing are just as silly now in proclaiming his funeral. Boulanger is not a sufficiently able ad venturer to arrive, but he has good wire pullers, and will find dissatisfied French men to howl and vote for him until some other man in a cocked hat or high boots comes along to fascinate the people and cut him out They must have some one to shout for. These last elections show that they are a little tired of yelling to the other side of the channel, whither their hero has discreetly scampered, but clever manage ment and a little pluck may carry him on some time longer. DRUNKENNESS ON THE INCREASE. Temperance movements Doine n Little More Harm Than Goad., BT CABLE TO TBE DISPATCH. London, August 3. Statistics have been published that grieve the temperance friends. Since 1885 salvation armies, temperance orders, and innumerable other engines de signed to keep mankind thirsty have been growing all over England at a tremendous rate, and since that time the convictions for drunkenness have risen to 156,809 a year, which figure gives a very weak idea indeed as to the number of Her Majesty's loyal subjects who have been drunk. The most drunken citv Is Liverpool, where last year there were 15,000 convictions. A curious fact is that, while the cases of drunkenness "have increased, the consump tion of liquor has fallen off, which means that those who are harmed by drink have not been helped any by the temperance movement, which evidently only reached those possessing that mysterious quality known as ability to let it alone.

United States Senator Matthew Stanley Quay ar rived At the Continental Hotel this evening fresh from Pittsburg. Shortly after Sena tor Quay's arrival he was called on by Col lector ot Internal Revenue Daniel Martin, who will go to the State convention as a delegate, and who will, with Walter Lyon, see to it that Quay's programme for the State convention is faithfully carried out Chairman Andrews, of the State Commit tee, who arrived in town to-day with Secre tary Frank Willing Leach, was on hand, and, with Collector Martin, went to Sen ator Quay's room, where the trio remained in consultation until midnight The details of the State convention were arranged, and the State Chairman and Collector of Internal Revenue were in formed as to the Senator's wishes regarding the officering of the convention and the drafting of suitable resolutions which are to make up the party platform. Senator Quay wanted it understood that HE DESIKES A TJNITED PAETT for the fight this fall, and all things else are to be subordinated to that end. Senator Quay and James McManes will hold a consultation here some time before Quay's leaving on tbe yacht Manitee. As sistant Postmaster General Clarkson, Will iam H. Dudley, and a few members of the .Kational Committee are expected here on Mondav. Hamilton Disston will call on Senator Quay to-morrow night, with Col-J lector .martin, ana su arrangements ior tne cruise on the steam yacht Manitee will be completed. The junior Senator and his distinguished visitors will remain away until the entire campaign which will be carried on in tbe four new Western States has been carefully planned. Upon the return of the paity the fight will be started at once, and one of the many reasons why the junior Senator is so anxious foe habmony in Pennsylvania is because of the fact of so much of his time being taken up with the fights in other parts of the country, and his position as Chairman of the National Re publican Committee renders it obligatory on his part to intrust the management of the campaign in this State to his lieuten ants here, in order that he may secure the Senators and Congressmen from the States voting this fall. It is stated on good authority that Senator Quay has not yet made any "recommenda tion regarding tbe choosing oi a successor to Superintendent of tbe Mint Daniel M.Fox. tn-Tiddiuon to tne Tflintftnere is a, liveli hood of the. Surveyorshsp being held open, despite the strong efforts which have been made in behalf of Captain Walters, of Phoonixville, and of an arrangement being made between Senator Quay and James McManes, whereby tbe latter will be allowed to name the parties to fill both of the above positions. In any event there will be no mare appointments made for Philadelphia until October, when the Surveyorship. Naval Office, Pension Office and Mint will change from. Democratic to Republican hands. That'much was fixed to-night. SOMEBODY WROTE A NOTE, And the Result Is a Fntal Shooting; on the Fnbllc Street. Columbia, S. C, August 3. This even ing in front of City Hall on Main street W. B. Meitze approached James I. Clark, who was in company with a lady, and shot him twice in the head, killing him. Meitze fired four shots and Clark one. The motive of the affair is as follows: Douglas Meitze, an uncle of W. B. Meitze, was ascea Dy a man to aeiiver tne following note to a young lady living in W. B. Meltze's family. It read: Miss Sophy Dear Miss: I want to meet yon. and have a private conversation. You remember well, and I won't sign my name. Yours admiringly, O. The uncle attempted to deliver the note to Mrs. Meitze, who declined to receive it, and upon W. B. Meitze learning of the mat ter he sought his uncle, got the note from him, but failed to ascertain the writer's name. This morning W. B. Meitze was going about with a double-barrel gun, threatening to shoot his uncle, and in the afternoon, suspectinc Clark of writing the note, he made threats to kill him also. Both parties are white. It is not known whetber Clark did write the note. He was married and leaves a widow and children, one grown. Meitze surren dered himself and is in jail. THEY LET HIM OFF EASY.

An Indianapolis Physician Makes a Practi cal Experiment of Brown-Seqnard's Ufa Elixir The Subject Throws Away Cratches and Spectacles. rSrEClAL TELIOKAM TO TBS DISrATCB.l Indianapolis, August 3. Dr. Pur man, of this city, has just made a practical demonstration of Brown-Sequard's life elixir theory. Dr. Purman easily procured the consent of Noah Clark, a citizen. Clark li 30 years oldr generally debilitated, suffer from rheumatism and from disease contracted during the war, and is generally a very fit subject for the experiment tried mvu uiui.iuia morning. pr. Purman drove out to the stockyards thu'mofaing, and selected the healthiest . lamb obtainable. The lamb was killed, and the necessary parts were brought to his office. Tie preparation was very simple. The partirwere cut and pounded in a mor tar, orjfljhoroughly "triturated." Two drachms of water were added, and the preparation carefully filtered. The result waaa reddish fluid the elixir. One and a half drachms of this, injected into the emaciated arm of Clark, a little below the shoulder, with an ordinary and hypodermio syringe Granville-Allen and Dr. Theodore Par ker were present during tne operation, which took place within two hours after killing the lamb, A few minuter after the opera tion a reporter called at the office and saw Mr. Clark. He was a limp picture of de jection, and seemed to have little vitality. Ton,, know how you feel sometimes when you get cp in the morning," he said. "You feel slcipy and lifeless, and unable to do anything. That's the way I have felt ever since the war." About tour hours after Mr. Clark walked down town from Ft Wayne avenue and climbed two flights of stairs without stop ping. "I feel a decided difference," he said, positively. "It used to take me an hour to get down town, and this time I have walked it within 25 minutes. I have not felt this way for" 25 years. I have a new vitality. I do not drag my feet along, and it is no trouble to nold my head up. I used to go along bent over." Clark stood quite straight "The doctor noticed an improved look in my eyes and more strength in my walk," he said. "Be fore, I could not read a newspaper without glassos, as I now can. The injection has certainly done me good. Whether this will last or not, I don't know, but I hope it will." Clark, to appearances, was certainly improved. His complexion and eyes clear ly indicated an exhilirated state. POLITICS IN WASHINGTON. Both Parties Are Orcanlzlnc Their Forces for the First Campalsn. Oia-mpia, Wash., August 3.

On Thursday night he found the comet attended by two objects, and on Saturday night his observation showed them to be companion comets, one uf them having decided tail. Besides the three comets mentioned there are four objects near, which are probably members of the same family. This phenom. enon is a rare one, though it has been ob served before. HA1STEAD AT HOME.

He Talks About Politics, Bat Wisely AtoMs Commit tin; nioselt Mr. Murat Halstead was given a recep tion at Cincinnati last night Speeches were made by Governor Forakcr, Mayor Mosby and others. Mr. Halstead responded in an address, which may be considered as formally entering him in the Senatorial campaign. Cincinnati, August 3. A reception to Mr. Murat Halstead upon his return from Europe was given to-night by the Repub lican clubs of Hamilton county in Music Hall. The clubs marched from their respective quarters, and. as they entered with their music the en thusiasm of the crowd was kept at white heat The stage was occupied by a large num ber of gentlemen designated to act as vice presidents. The entrance of Mayor Mosby escorting the distinguished-looking figure of Mr. Halstead was simultaneous with the coming of one of the largest clubs bearing a transparency with the legend, "Halstead Welcome Home." AN ENTHUSIASTIC GREETING. A wild scene of waving hats and hand kerchiefs, and people rising and cheering, followed. The appearance of Governor Foraker renewed the enthusiasm. Mr. Halstead never appeared in better health, and with a trifle of nervousness at so much demonstration, he took his seat beside the Mayor. When all the clubs had been seated, Mayor Mosby made a welcoming address, containing allusions to the honored guest's fearlessness as a journalist and a suggestion of the usefulness of such a quality in the Senate of the United States. When Mr. Halstead arose to reply he had a most flat tering reception, which continued several minutes, during which the assemblage of 5,000 arose and cheered and cheered again. Mr. Halstead said: I am both gratified and surprised at the man ifestation before me to-night, and 1 can answer the question as to bow I am by saying that I am very well indeed. Concerning tbe action of tbe Senate in my case, which His Honor has referred to, I have no grievances that I desire to have tbe public concerned about Tbe ACTION BT THE SENATE was, so far as tbe Republicans opposed me, largely owing to misapprehensions which I was unable at tbe time to correct There was also evidence in some cases of personal feeling that did not do me justice. But however in tended on the part of those who rejected me, I cheerfully and sincerely recognize tbe fact that tbey did me a kindness. I bave been abroad on my own hook, and have accomplished tbe mission most important to myself tbe restora tion of my health. The President badnodiffl culty In finding a snitable man for the place in the Hon. William Walter Phelps, a gentleman admirably qualified to discbarge the duties of that office, as has been proven by bis excellent work in the Samoan conference. Touching the inquiry as to whether I am a candidate for the United States Senate, 1 do not wish to have that urged upon tbe people. That is a matter for consideration after the Republican victory which I confidently oxpect in November, by the triumphant re-election of Governor Foraker and the election of a Repub lican General Assembly. I do not think it pos sible for the people of Ohio to permit tbe law making power oi tbe State to pass into tbe bands of the Democrats. There is notbing in the recent history of tbe party to warrant such action. NO OBJECTIONS TO OFFER. When this Republican Legislature is elected, if the Republicans in it shall think that I would be a good representative man, that in their good judgment it would be a good thins; to elect me a Senator of the United States, I should regard It as a great honor, and attempt to perform the duties of tbe office to the best of my ability. Bat tbe object to be aimed at, however, and which cannot be too clearly and strongly stated, is not an individual triumph, but to make sure that Ohio shall be hereafter represented in the Senate of the United States by two Republicans. That is an object worthy of any Republican's ambition. No personal ambition should be permitted to Interfere with that object. It is my hope to help to win a clean Republican vic tory in a straight Republican fight, and to make the fight on the ground of sustaining the administration of President Harrison and the State administration of Governor Foraker. The more I have traveled abroad, and the more I have become acquainted with the peo- Sle and affairs of other nations, tbe higher has een mv atmreciation of tbe life in which, how-' ever diverse may be tbe fortunes of the people, their opportunities are far greater than in any foreign country. AN AMEEICAN ALWAYS. Speaking for myself, while understanding that we have no occasion to be sorry for tbe Germans, tbe French, or tbe English who oc cupy some of the most favored portions of the globe and bave attained a splendid civilization, I must say that I have an unfeigned preference both for tbe climate and diet of the United States of America. Mr. Halstcad's address was listened to with interest, and quite frequently ap plauded. It was after 10 o'clock when Governor Foraker arose to make his ad dress. The Governor said his duty was an unnecessary one. He was to welcome Jin Halstead on behalf of the Republicans of Ohio, but Mr. Halstead knew he was wel come long before this time. He went on to speak of the extent and earnestness of this demonstration, such as was seldom accorded to any one not a creat statesman or soldier. Yet on his return he asked, "What have I done to merit a reception?" Tbe Governor said Mr. Halstead was the only Republican in Ohio who would ask the question. He went on to tell why Mr. Halstead was welcome, citing as reasons the high regard the people had for his Kourage and honesty, for the purity and simplicity of his life, for his intelligent patriotism, and lor ins complete and entire Republicanism. THE COMING ELECTION. It was fortunate that his returnr restored to health, is at this time, when an impor tant election was on. It was an election when Mr. Halstead's sturdy -service was needed to assist in the blotting out of the most foul taint upon the legislative action of Ohio the corrupt election of Henry B. Payneto the Senate. Mr. Halstead's serv ice, said he, can be counted upon to assist in making the next Legislature Republican. Drifting into political matters, the Gov ernor spoke of the marked reform in the election law ol Ohio in the past four years, and of the police force, both of -which he claimed as results of Republican legislation. In conclusion he touched upon the recent manifestations of lawlessness on lhe part of certain people, and repeated his assertion made in his recent letter to Mayor Mosbv. that obedience to law is the first duty of citizenship. Referring to the warning that in taking this ground he would offend the German voter, he said he had no fear of that He knew the German voter and the German character. He was himself 'of German blood, and he served through the war with German soldiers. He knew the German citizen to be true and patriotic and a lover of justice. Throughout lis address the as sembly gave liberal applause, "which was especially marked in his eulogy of Mr. Halstead and in his declaration in favor of the support of law. ROUTED THE DEEVISHES. General Grenfell Makes a Scientific Attack and Comes Off Triumphant He Sweeps All Before Him, Kill ing or Wounding 1,500 of the Dervishes. Caieo, August 3. General Grenfell en gaged the Dervishes near Toskl to-day. and completely routed them. " Wad-El-Jumi, the Dervish leader, was killed. The Der vish loss W3s 1,500 killed and wounded. The Egyptian loss was slight Beside Wad-El-Jumi, the slain en the Dervish1 side in clude 12 Emirs and nearly all the fighting men. Fifty standards were captured by the Egyptians. General Grenfell marched out of Toski at 5 o'clock this morning, with a strong recon noitering force of cavalry and camelry, and advanced on to the Dervish camp. Making a feint of retreating, he drew the whole of Wad-El-Jumi'a force to a point within four miles of Toski. Here the Egyptian infantry were held in readiness for attack, and a gen eral action was at once begun. The Dervishes made a gallant defense. but were driven irom hill to hill. The Egyptian cavalry made a succession of effective charges, in which Wad-El-Jumi and the Emirs were killed. After seven hours of hard fighting the Dervishes were completely routed. Gunboats are following the scattered remnants of the Dervish force along the river. Later particulars estimate the Dervish dead roughly at 1,500. The Dervishes fought desperately, throwing themselves upon the advancing columns repeatedly, and refusing quarter. The crisis of the battle was reached when the Dervishes at tempted to turn the extreme right of the Egyptians. The steadiness of the troops was admirable. The cavalry here rfwept through the lines of the enemy, breaking them up. No prisoners are yet reported to have been taken. The cavalry pursued the retreating rebels for miles. General Gren fell ordered the gunboats to pick up fugi tives and wounded. GOLD m OHIO. Two Experienced Miners Pleased With Their Find In Clermont County They Think It Worth Working The Precious Metal Surely There. rSFECIAL TELEQBAX TO TBE DISrATCB.l Cincinnati, August 3. For several years gold in small quantities has been found in Clermont county, this State, not more than 20 miles from Cincinnati. Inex perienced men has worked over the ground at intervals, and in their small findings have made probably 51 50 a day each. About a week ago two experienced miners, who had received specimens of the ore from the farm of John Wood, in Clermont county," looked oyer the ground thoroughly and then went to work. They say that a discovery like they have made, if made anywhere in the mining re gions of the West, would attract 2.000 miners within 48 hours. The miners are a Mr. Baldwin and J. S. Jennings. The former is a native New Yorker and the lat ter is an Ohloan. Both were astonished to day to learn that their business in Clermont county had been found out by the news papers, and gave up what information they had very reluctantly. Until the arrival of these miners no at tempts were ever made to tunnel into the hill wilere gold is found. Only placer mining ias been carried on, and that by in experienced men. Not a panfnl of the earth can be gathered up anywhere about this hill in which traces of gold can't be found. Usually the gold is in minute specks, but frequently buttons of good size are discovered, some as large as buckshot So confident are the miners that they have struck a rich lead that they have perfected plans to sink a shaft and at once begin tun neling to the spot whence tbe surface gold comes.

Political affairs at Samoa remain quiet. The German gun boat Wull leit here Jure 27 for Joluit, Marshall Islands, for the purnose of bring ing back the deposed King Malietoa and three chiefs who were taken there by tha Germans two years ago. The Germans stata they are bringing Malietoa back to Samoa of their own free will and not as the result of the Berlin conference. They also assert they will do all in their power to restore the condition of affairs that existed here prior to the time that Malietoa was deposed, and they announce they will. favor Malietoa as King. The German corvette Sophie arrived recently from Zanzi bar, via Sydney and Auckland. She has a number of wonnded men on board who re ceived their injuries during the campaign at Zanzibar. Officers of the Sophie state that the Alexandria will arrive here in about a month and relieve the Sophie. THE A2IEBICAN CONTINGENT. Admiral Kimberly, accompanied by Lieutenant Merriman, his secretary, has gone to inspect Pago-Pago harbor, and the site for storing the coal which is expected to arrive there daily from Philadelphia, Lieutenent H. O. Rittenhouse and six men are the only survivors of the recent hurri cane, which still remain at Apia, and it is thought they will go aboard the Adams as soon as she arrives from Honolulu. The police appointed by Mataafa last June have full charge of the town, tha police who held office under the old Tamasese Government having been forced to disband. Mataafa has also appointed native judges for the municipality and county districts. The natives have not an abundance of food, but it is believed the supply will last until their plantations are again in working order. A branch of the London Missionary So ciety in Sydney raised 52,500 for tha Samoans on the strength of a private letter from one of their missionaries here and sent $750 worth of rice and biscuits to Apia, but the chief missionary in Samoa at once wrote to Sydney and asked that no more pro visions be sent, as it only tended to pauper ize the natives. NO DASGEE OF STAEVTNO. As soon as it was known here that pro visions had been received, a number of. natives went to the missionaries and begged' for food, saying that they were starving. The missionaries, however, sentftbem away, stating that they thought the natives wera In no danger of starvation. Considerable annoyance is expressed hers on account of a newspaper argument which has been started in Sydney between tha Roman Catholics and London Missionary Society as to which religious body the natives belonged who saved lives during tha hurricane. The Samoans are divided in. their religions belief, and it is feared the discussion may tend to increase the bad feeling which already exists among tha natives. Some of the high chiefs say that they fear the religious differences may be carried into the election for King, which will be held on Malietoa's return, and that a split may occur among tbe adherents of the Malietoa family, of which. Mataafa is a member, and that thereby Tamasese may be elected King, in which event the Germans would bave as full power as they had two years ago. ONE EXCITING FEATUEE. Considerable excitement was caused here a month ago by the fact that a number of the Samoans- left here on the steamer Ala meda for San Francisco in charge of an American. Mataafa supposed that the lat ter was a British snbject, and he applied to the British Consnl to use his offices in pre venting the Samoans from going. The British Consul referred the matter to United States Vice Consul Blacklock, and Mataafa wrote a letter to tbe latter asking him to interfere in the matter. However, the natives were by that time) aboard the steamer, and as no boat could be obtained, it was impossible to communicate with them. Consul" Blacklock has not yet completed the distribution of gifts irom the American Government, consisting of money, watches, etc " - i TANNER'S PENSION POLlCI.

He said it was not in the Constitution of tha United States, and when considered in com. parison with the conduct of scheming con ventions and Legislatures is an inconsist ency. .
