The Effects Thereof Already Made Manifest. Lively Times in tho Reichstag- Ex pected to Ensue. The Ex-Chancellor Says He Will Not Antagonize the Kmperor From Personal Motives. Associated Press Dispatches. Berlin, May 2.—[Copyrighted, 18U1, by the New York Associated Press.1 — The prospect of Bismarck's early reap pearance in reichstag has given an im petus to the government's plans for the conciliation of the various parties so as to render them ready to coalesce in the government's interests. The Centre and Freisinnige parties and the Guelphs and Poles in turn receive government in ducements. The recently developed tendencies of the government towards the conciliation of the Poles, are justly to be ascribed in part to a quickened sense of justice in dealing with them. Whatever mixed motive may animate the government, the Poles of western Prussia and Posen have been favorably influenced by the freer use of their na tional language in schools; by greater facilities affored them for the acquire ment and sate of land, and by increased courtesy afforded by the officers to Pol ish families. Today's debate in the lower house of the diet, on the commission for the Ger man colonization of Western Prussia, occasioned remarks touching the govern ment's policy in Posen, and provoked Chancellor Yon Caprivi to explain. He denied that the government had con ceded to the Poles anything beyond what came within the scope of the settle ment law ; it had met the wishes of the Poles as regards both school and church. The Poles, on their part, had mani fested a desire to bring themselves into closer accord with the government. This, the chancellor said, was indeed a pleasant and surprising change. If the Poles would like to lead upon the path of reconciliation, the government and Germans were ready to follow. Bismarck's victory is modified by the fact that he polled 2UOO fewer votes than did his National Liberal predecessor. The socialist ballot was reinforced by over one thousand GuelphistaFreieinnige voters, whose hatred of the prince ex ceeded their dislike of the Socialists. The prince in an interview on the eve of the reballot, declared that if he went to the reichstag he would never attack any policy directly initiated by the emperor, and that his line of conduct would be the same as that followed by him since he left Berlin. He was con vinced that the greatest danger to the Fatherland was not from without, but within. He would not refrain from ex posing it, but he certainly would never say anything to give his opponents rea son to charge him with attacking the emperor from personal motives. This eort of assurances, promises lively times in the reichstag. The Hamburger Nachrichten holds that the death of Yon Moltke adds to the desire of Germany to see Bismarck in the forefront of politics. "A senti ment of disquiet," says the Nachrichten, "fills the empire. The future is uncer tain. The new men into whose hands have been confided the destinies of the fatherland, cannot reassure the coun try." The Freisinnige and Centrist press is indignant at this language. The Austro-German plenipotentiaries will sign the treaty of commerce at Vi enna tomorrow. The American 'department of the in ternational art exhibition is a thorough success. The appoint merit of Lieutenant Clarke oi the United States cavalry, to serve with the Dusseldorf Hussars, has evoked approving comments from the press. The Vossiesche Zeitung says it is the first case of the kind, and ought to be recognized by America as a proof and pledge of the warm feelings which those in the highest station in the German empire entertain towards the common wealth. OKI,AM A'l'KK'S DANGER. Prison Doors Opening; to Receive Matt Quay's Hencliman. Meadville, Pa., May 2. —The propo sition of Delamater & Co. to settle with their creditors on a 50 per cent, basis has fallen through. Ex-Senator Dela mater today stated that the terms of the proposition had not been complied with, and the friends who had proposed to assist him in making the first pay ment would not consent to have the time for securing the signatures of the remainder of the creditors extended. The members of the firm of Delamater & Co. were arrested on complaint of a small depositor this evening, and bail furnished in the sum of $300 each. It is rumored that an attempt will be made by repeated arrests to exhaust his bail and finally get the ex-senator in jailf A DELICATE MATTER. Blame and Foster Have Tlieir Heads To gether on the Seal Question. Washington, May 2.—Secretaries Blame and Foster had a long conference today on the subject of seal fisheries. Secretary Foster submitted a rough draft of the instructions prepared for the guidance of the agent at the Seal islands, and for the revenue cutter Rush, the coming season. He declined this evening to indicate the nature of the in structions in either case, but said the matter was such a delicate one that the utmost pains are being taken in prepar ing the instructions, so as not to trench on treaty rights or agreements. Arms for Chile. Washington, May 2.—Assistant Sec retary Spaulding has telegraphed to the collector at Wilmington, Cal., that there is no reason for interference in the matter of the transfer of certain arms and ammunition from the Ameri can schooner Robert and Minnie, to a LOS ANGELES HERALD. transport for reshipment to South America. Tlie telegram of the collec tor, asking the advice of the treasury department in the matter, is not very explicit as to where the arras came from or for what port they are intended, but it is supposed they are for the Chilean government or insurgents of that country. THE S A YW A Kl> CASE. Counsel For the Canadian Government File Another Brief. Washington, May 2.—Messrs. Choate and Carlisle, counsel for the Canadian governnlent in the Bering sea case, have prepared a supplementary brief in the nature of a rejoinder to the brief of the attorney general. In it counsel reiter ate the assertion that the seizure of the Say ward was without warrant of law, or under the executive construction of the revised statutes. The claim is made that all the courts are inferior to the supreme court, and subject to its man damus or prohibition. The only real question in the case, they say, is, has the United States jurisdiction of the conduct of foreign vessels in the waters of the Bering sea, more than a marine league from its shores? After discus sing the objection of the attorney gen eral to examination by the supreme Court of the entire proceedings of the Alaska district court, counsel say the only question with which this court is called upon to concern itself, is that of the jurisdiction of the district court. Referring to the statement of the attor ney-general that the claimant did not apply for a writ of prohibition before sentence, counsel say the petitioner could not apply for "want of time, the whole proceedings from libel to sen tence, being completed in six days, and at a time when the supreme court was not in session. Counsel continned at length there is nothing in the evidence to show that the seals were killed within the three-mile limit, and quote from the evidence to prove that assertion. In conclusion counsel asserted that there can be no doubt that the seizure was made without reference to acts com mitted within three miles of the main land, or the adjacent islands.

In Saring and Liege, in Belgium, determined attempts were made by the strikers to prevent any men who refused to join their ranks from working. When non strikers attempted to work they were attacked by strikers with stones and other missiles. The gen darmes were compelled to invoke aid of the military. At Harloz colliery in St. Nicholas, the soldiers were ordered out, and several strikers wounded.

The troubles in Roue, he said, were due to Anah Lamdi, who had been sent expressly from Paris to incite disturbances. Imbriani provoked a storm of protests by persisting, in the face of Nicotera'B denial, that an officer was brutally attacked at Barzelar. The turmoil caused the president to suspend the sitting until tomorrow, when the government wiHdemand an explicitvote of confidence. Paris, May 2. —Further particulars of the labor riot at Fournies, yesterday, go to show that three people were killed outright by the fire of the soldiers, and a number of others wounded, four of whom have since died.

A LITTLE MORE TREACLE. President Harrison Once More Praises California's Hospitality. San Fbancisco, May 2.—At the close of the reception at the Union League club, tonight, President Harrison was presented a solid gold plate fac-simile of the card of invitation, beautifully enam eled with the crest of the state of Cali fornia and the flag of the union. In ac cepting it, the president said: "Cali fornia is full of ambuscades, not of a hostile sort, but with all the embarrass ments that attend surprise. In a hasty drive this afternoon, when I thought I was to visit Oak land, I was suddenly drawn up in front of a college and asked to make an address, and a moment after arrived be fore an asylum for the deaf, dumb and blind, the character of which I did not know until the carriage stopped in front of it. All this taxes the ingenuity, as your kindness moves the heart, of one who is making a hurried journey through California. I do not need such sou venirs as this to keep fresh in my heart this visit to your state. It will be pleasant, however, to show to others, who have not participated in this enjoyment, this rec ord of a trip that has been very eventful, aud one of perpetual sunshine and hap piness. Ido not think I could have en duied the labor and toil of travel, unless I had been borne up by the inspiration and hearty good will of your I know not what will become of me when it is withdrawn. I fear I shall need a vigorous tonic to keep up to the high level of enjoyment and inspiration which your kind treatment has given me. I thank you for this pleasant social enjoy ment, and this souvenir of it." Another Kipper Suspect. New York, May 2.—The police au thorities at Jamaica, L. 1., have a man m custody supposed to be the missing C. Knicklo, who accompanied Carrie Brown to the hotel on the night of the murder.

He asserted that for this he was assaulted with a danger ous weapon and summoned to appear on trial for violating the rules of the soci ety. He fears another attempt will be made to do him bodily harm. Although of Italian nativity, he is now an Amer ican citizen and wants protection. He says: "The Mafia are thirsting for my blood."
