Koch Refuses to Give Away His Secret Discovery. Bismarck Trying to Rattle the Ministry. Remarkable Growth of German Cities. Associated P«|ss;i>ispatchcs. Berlin, Dec. 27.—[Copyright, 1890, by the New York Associated Press.] — The Socialist leaders issued a manifesto tonight, affirming the determination of the Socialist party to rally the peasants around the Hag of socialistic reform. It says the life of ,the agricultural laborer is scarcely human, and that they are serfs in all but name. The bright dawn ing of the new era shall bring rejoicing to the peasants, as well as to the toilers in the cities, and they shall learn that they have a right to the beautiful on earth, the fruits whereof they may not now stretch forth their hands and enjoy. They must be taught that the patri arcbial system is the mortal foe of the agricultural laborer. The peasant pro | prietor and aristocracy are becom ing brandy distillers, and will make the peasants the slaves of machinery, as the town workers have already become. The manifesto asks the members of the party to contribute money to assist in organizing the rural population. Behind the.declarations in the mani festo, which the government might dis regard, are practical arrangements for lecture tours, the formation *of rural branches, etc., which are already hav ing a disquieting effect upon the people's mind. The nature of the manifesto was known to the government, and the mat ter ivas referred to the'emperor, who in structed tWat nothing should be done to suppress it. KOCH'S LYMPH COUNTERFEITED. It has been discovered that a spurious imitation of the Koch lymph is being manufactured, and a number of cases are reported in which foreign medical men have been deceived into purchas- | ing it. The manufacturer* have not yet i been discovered. The medical profepsion i? growing 1 more and more indignant over the man ner in which the lymph is distributed, , and Koch's seeresy regarding its produc tion. Koch, in an interview with an eminent English physician, who urged the professor to disclose the whole process, got very wroth at the proposal, and declared that he had a right to do as he pleased with his discovery. The Tageblatt assails this position, as scandalous, and says the rapacity of Koch's clique will certainly be severely criticized when Minister Yon Gessler moves in the landtag a grant for Koch and his assistants of three million marks, with fifteen per cent on the an nual sales. The treatment of the ca.se of William Alegan, who came here from New York, has proved a failure. He has had four injections and his symptoms are the same as when he arrived POLITICAL CONFLICTS. The prospect of the submission of the conservative majority in the landtag, of a commercial reform bill, has become re mote. Bismarck's organ, in a series of articles evidently inspired by the ex chancellor, urges the conservatives not to yield. The government organs assert that the government is resolved to main tain is project in its entirety. The Lib eral press continues to clamor for imme diate dissolution. Other menacing causes of political con flict are Emperor William's educational projects, and the Austrian treaty of commerce. The Hamburger Nach richten (Bismarck's organ) is leading the aggressive campaign. It asserts that the Reichstag ought to be dissolved and the sense of the country taken on the projects, which have never been submitted to the electorate, and which effect the highest interests of the em pire. BIBMABCK* TACTICS. Bismarck's tactics in assuming the offensive against the government are supposed to have been adopted for the pupose of fomenting and exeiting'gen eral parliamentary disorder, and embar rassing the ministry, in the hope,that he might prove himself again the inevit able chief. Yon Gessler is known to differ wfth the emperor in regard to his ideas on education. It is reported that he offered to resign, but at the request of the em peror consented to remain for the pres ent to f,'\o the emperor time to select his suect' 0 who, it is thought, will be Dr. Hinzp ?r, Emperor William's for mer tutor. GROWTH OF GERMAN CITIES. The official census of Germany, re cently completed, gives Berlin a popu lation of 1,574,436, an increase of 259, --000 in five years. The nextcity is Ham burg, with a population of 570,534, an increase of 90,534 since 1885. Leipsie, which has 353,272 inhabitants, had only 159,500 in 1885. This is the greatest in crease in any city, being 82 per cent. MISCELLANEOUS NOTES. Professor Weiger of Strasburg is dead, There is a serious outbreak of small pox at the seaport town of Hadersleben. LONDON CABLINGS. A Skating Disaster on the River Avon. The Shanghai Disaster, Ktc. London, Dec. 27. —The ice on the river Avon, at Warwick, broke while thous ands of skaters were on the surface. Many persons broke through, and were rescued with difficulty, -eventeen bodies have been recovered, and many are still missing. Further advices from China, as to the burning of the steamship Shanghai, show that the disaster was much more serious than at first reported. The early advices received stated that the crew of sixty natives, with several European of ficers, were supposed to have met their death, either in the flames or by drown ing. It now seems that the number of lives lost is over 200, all by drowning. The false report as to the suspension of Messrs. Pixley & Abell, bullion brok ers, of this city, arose from the financial indiscretions of a youthful member of the firm, who has since retired. The firm stood it unimpaired, and other banks have announced that they are satisfied with the stability of Pixley & Abell. A telegram from Whitby, Yorkshite, announces the suicide of Walter Grim shaw, the chess-player and composer. He cut his throat this morning with a razor. No reasons are assigned for the deed. THE COI'TRIGHT QUESTION. Canada Has Not the Power to Legislate on the Subject. Ottawa, Out., Dec. 27. —Sir John Thompson says the Canadian govern ment has received no communication from the British colonial office on the subject of the copyright question, except the transmission of the views of a society of authors, already published. Lord Knutsford is of the opinion ths,t Canada has not the power to legislate on the question of copyright, and it has not been agreed to confer the power upon her. Sir John Thompson has good reasons for beli3ving that during the present and next session of the imperial parliament, legislation conferring the power will be placed. He is of tho opinion that the passage of the Simonds copyright bill would not affect the Cana dian question, as that measure gives British authors a domestic copyright, in the United States, on the condition that the work is reset with American type and bound in the United States. An order in council waß passed by the Can adian government some time ago, asking the colonial office to withdraw Canada from the Berne copyright convention. THE SCOTCH STRIKE. The Shipping Trade and Dependent Trades ISecoming l'uralyzed. Glasgow, Dec. 27. —Another serious i result of the strike is announced, in the statement that the shipping trade of this port will soon be at a standstill, as the supply of coal for steamers is almost exhausted. Should this state of affairs continue much longer, considerable suf fering will ensue among the poorer classes. Many trades depending directly j or indirectly upon shipping, must sutler seriously. AN ENCYCLICAL LETTER. | POPE LEO DISCUSSES THE SOCIAL, PROBLEM. : He Kspousos the Cause of the Lowly- and I Oppressed—The Crowning Effort ot j His Life Work. Paris, Dec. 27. —Advices from Rome state that the pope has finished a draft of his encyclical upon the social ques- j tion. His holiness has been working upon the subject for over a year, and at his request the most competent econo mists and bishops of different countries, including America, furnished memo randa. The pope considers the question the greatest of the present time. The encyclical will be the crowning act of the pope's work in this direction. The date of its publication is not yet given, but the Associated Press correspondent is enabled to give the substance of it now. The encyclical will review and ex pound the whole question affecting wage-workers. The document will com prise three parts. First, his holiness will develop the general principles upon which social economy is founded, and the dominant idea of distributive jus tice which should regulate the inter course of men and the spread of wealth. The pope saya distributive and restora tive justice is needed to prevent misery and sweating on one side, and exorbi tant riches and tyranny (in the other. The second part comprises the origin and causes of the present condition of the social problem. On this point his holiness takes the new thesis first devel oped in his encyclical on socialism. The third part contains the views of the pope regarding the remedies beyond religious and moral inlluence to be advo cated. His holiness expresses himself again in favor of intervention by the ."late within the limits previously set forth. lie condemns capitalism as now organized, and advocates a more equit able and just distribution of riches. The pope is convinced that the papacy and the church should lead the present so cial and democratic movement, and will appeal to all the conservative forces and the protestants to aid in securing the safety of society. The pope's physician says his holiness may live for some time yet, ns he has a robust constitution and is suffering from no infirmity. The New Freight Rates. Pan Francisco, Dec. 27. —James Smith, chairman of the Transcontinental association, has notified the lines .con nected therewith that, the recently adopted freight schedule will go into effect on January 15th as to west-bound freight.

SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER HORRIBLE BUTCHERY A Youiig Bohemian's Sick ening Crime. He Carves a Rival In a Most Shocking Manner. The Corpse Disembowled and Other « wise Mutilated. A Voluntary Confession Made ol the Dia bolical Deed—Blooey Riots In the South. Associated Press Dispatches. Saville, L. L, Dec. 27. —A most brutal murder was committed last night at Bohemia, a small village three miles north of here. Late this evening Frank Krutis, a cigarmaker, walked into the house of Constable Sashek, laid on the table a human finger and said he had killed Winnie Croupa, a fellow cigarmaker, and had brought the finger to prove it. The constable first thought the man was joking, but Krutis said : "I mean what I say. Croupa told about me, and I concluded to kill him. I met him on the road and cut his throat. I wanted to make sure he would never speak again, so I cut open his belly and placed his bowels over his face ; then I cut. off a finger for you." The constable hastily summoned a posse, and, accompanied by the mur derer,they wentoutand found the body. It was a horrible sight. It lay in the bloody snow. The clothing was torn from it. The entrails layover the breast, neck and face. The right ear and the index tinger were missing. When the party returned to the vil lage they were met by an excited crowd, which wanted to lynch the murderer, but the constables succeeded in getting him to jail. Throughout his examination Krutrs conducted himself in a stolid manner, it is believed jealousy of Ctoupa's atten tion to a young woman, was one of the motives of the crime. A CONS PIRACY. Sensational Developments in Sodomite Hammond's Cuse. Seattle, Dec. 27.—Sensational devel opments in the Charles Hammond grand larceny case were brought out in the motion for a new trial in the circuit court today. Hammond was convicted of stealing a sealskin sarque and gold watch belonging to Mrs. Simons. Today an affidavit of ex-l'oliceman Hanna was filed in court, in which Hanna states that Mrs. Simons called on him to search the house of a woman named Bohannen, whom she charged with stealing her saeque and watch. Another affidavit was tiled, in which a lodging-house keeper named Beadle, swears that Simons, the hus band of the woman who swore Hammond had stolen her things, had been treating some of the jurors to the drinks during the trial. It is claimed that the whole case is a conspiracy to get Hammond out of the way. The man who worked up the case and figured as prosecuting witness, is suspected of being an Eng lish detective in the employ of the patrons of Hammond's Cleveland-street house in London, sent here to rid the country of Hammond.
