THE PRINCE OF IRON.
Bismarck's Early Return to
The Effects Thereof Already
Lively Times in tho Reichstag- Ex
pected to Ensue.
The Ex-Chancellor Says He Will Not
Antagonize the Kmperor From
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
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

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.

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.

Associated Press Dispatches.
London, May 2. —Turbulence contin
ues in the mining districts of France
and Belgium. 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.
During a riot on Friday at Bekes,
Hungary, a number of enraged pea
sants made a savage attack
and severely injured the chief
magistrate of the place, for prohibiting
May-day demonstrations. Upon the
military coming to the rescue, a sharp
affray took place, and many rioters
were wounded. The fighting caused
the greatest excitement, and the author
ities were compelled to declare the
place in a state of seige. All the shops
are closed, and latest reports say the
people are still wildly excited.
Brussels, May 2.—ln spite of the
manifesto issued by the council of the

30,000 miners and 4000 iron workers
in the Charleroi district have struck

Rome, May 2. —In the deputies today,
amid noisy interruptions, Nicotera, Min
ister of the Interior, recounted the
events of May day, and read telegrams
to show that the country was tranquil.
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
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

acting under their officers' instructions,
and in order to avoid taking life, fired
low, with the result that many of the
limbs of rioterß have been amputated.

today, of Schelgouna, a well known
Russian political economist, was made
the occasion of a great demonstration.
Students of both sexes marched through

A LITTLE MORE TREACLE.
President Harrison Once More Praises
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."

A PLEA FOR PROTECTION.
A» Italian Citizen Arraid of the Walla*
New Orleans, May 2.—Mayor Shake

Philip J. Paterno, asking police protec

ago he was taken sick, and being a

cash relief to which he was entitled. A
portion of the cash relief was refused,
and he brought suit. He asserted that
for this he was assaulted with a danger
