Associated Press Dispatches.
Washington, May 4.—The following
dispatch wis sent by Secretary Blame
today to Purter, American minister at
A series of statements addressed to
Marquis Imperiali by Marquis Rudini
were telegraphed from Rome yesterday,
and published by the Associated Press
in the United States today. The only
part of Rudini's communication which
this government desires to notice ia the
one here quoted, namely:
I have now before me a note addressed to you
by Secretary Blame, April 14th, Its perusal
F reduces a most painful Impression upon me
will not stop to fay stress upon the lack of con
formity to usages displayed in m»king use, as
Blame did not hesitate to do, of a portion of a
telegram of mine communicated to him in
strict confidence in order to get rid of the ques
tion clearly defined in our official documents,
which alone possesses diplomatic value.
The telegram March 14th, concerning
whose public use Marquis Rudini com
plains, is the following, which is quoted
in full in my note of April 14th, to Mar
quis Imperiali at Washington:
Rome, March 24th.
Italian Minister, Washington:
Ourrequests of the federal government are
very simple Some Italian subjects, acquitted
by American magistrates, have been murdered
in prison while under the immediate protection
of the authorities. Our right, therefore, to de
mand and obtain the punishment of the mur
derers, and indemnity for the victims, is un
questionable. I wish to add that public opin
ion in Italy is justly impatient, and;if concrete
provisions were not made at once, I should llnd
myself in the painful necessity of Bhoning
ooenly our dissatisfaction by recalling the min
ister of His Majesty from a country where ho Is
unahle to obtain justice.
Signed: Ri dim.
The intimation of Marquis Rudini
that the telegram in question was de
livered in strict confidence, is a total
error. His telegram expressed the de
mand of the Italian government; it was
impossible Marquis Rudini could trans
mit it in strict confidence. As I already,
stated, it was communicated to me in
person by Baron Fava, written in Eng
lish in his own handwriting, with a sug
gestion of privacy, and the telegram
itself hag not a single nark or point upon,
it denoting confidential character. I
have caused a number of copies of the
telegram to be forwarded you today, in
fac-simile. The usual mark for italic
firinting was used by me under four
inea, and they appear in the copies.
You will use the fac-simile in such a
manner as will most effectually prove
the error into which Marquis Rudini
has fallen.
[Signed] Blame.
'Wildest Excitement in the French Cham
ber of Deputies.
Paris, May 4. —It was announced yes
terday that a section of the left would join
with the Socialist and Boulangist depu
ties, demanding a vote of censure, to
day, against Constans, minister of the
interior, on the ground that the latter
Is responsible for the slaughter of men,
women and children shot down by troops
at Fourmies on Labor day. Constans,
today, after replying in" explanatory
terms to a question as to the Fourmies
affair, and giving bis version of the mat
ter, holding that neither the governor
nor the troops were to blame for the
disaster, was astonished to see Roche,
the deputy representing the seventeenth
electoral district of the Seine, spring to
his feet and shout fiercely : "Murderer!"
A tremendous sensation followed.
Finally order was restored, and the
chamber voted that Roche should be
excluded from any further participation
in today's session, and that he should
be censured by the chamber for the
term he had applied to the minister of
the interior.
No sooner was this action decided
upon, than Roche sprang to his feet,
and shaking his fist at those of hie as
sociates who had been most active in
bringing about his proposed expulsion
and censure, the angry deputy yelled:
"You are a lot of varlets, worthy your
This was more than the presiding offi
cer could submit to, so he ordered Roche
removed by force from the chamber.
This was eventually done, amid the
wildest scenes ever witnessed in the
chamber of deputies.
The chamber then, by a vote of 356 to
33, declared confidence in the govern
Fourmies, May 4.—The situation here
today is grave. The greatest excitement
prevails throughout the town and vicin
ity. The actual feeling can be best
judged from the fact that many leaders
of the popular movement, the best
known representatives of the labor party,
have started to Belgium for arms and
dynamite for use against the troops here.
A report has reached here that a quan
tity of dynamite destined lor the people
of this town was seized while being
smuggled across the frontier from Bel
Cavalry pickets will be stationed all
along the route of the funeral procession
of. the victims of the May day massacre,
for such is tho term applied to the
tragedy by the people heie. The gov
ernment has sent two delegates here
with instructions to make a thorough
inquiry into the causes which led to trie
disturbance on Labor day, and into the
action of the officers who ordered the
troops to fire on the people.
The funeral procession was very long,
being participated in by a large number
of workmen's clubs, with red and black
flags draped. The nine coffins were sur
rounded by the relatives of the victims.
After the religious services the clergy
left, and the socialists took charge, vio
lent addresses being delivered.
The Mission of the Robert and Minnie
and Ettata Explained.
San Francisco, May 4.—Ricardo L.
Trumbull, of Santiago, Chile, a repre
sentative of the Congressional party, is

ous cruise of the schooner Robert and

Mr. Trumbull aays the cargo conaiats of
10,000 45-70 calibre Remington rifles,
and 2,500,000 cartridgea. They were
shipped by rail from New York, and ar
rived here April 22d. Regarding the
steamer Ettata, now at San Diego, he
saya she came there for the purpose of
obtaining provisions for the warahips
now in the possession of the congrea
sional party.
Olsen's Defense.
Mkrced, May 4. —The Olsen trial was
resumed thia afternoon, aa the defend
ant felt abie -to proceed. Olsen testified
in hia own behalf, and stated that he
never had a quarrel with Ivett. He de
scribed all his movements for three days
previoua to the murder, a.id denied the
charges of Convict Bennett that there
waa a plot to murder Ivett. He said he
could have killed Ivett at any time, if
he wanted to. Tne prosecution did not
cross-examine Olsen.
The Walla Walla Lynchers.
Walla Walla, Wash., May 4.—The
county commissioners have offered a re
ward of $1500 for the a r rest and convic
tion of the parties who lynched A. J.
Hunt, April 24tb, and Col.Compton haa
isaued an order convening a board of
officera to investigate the lynching.
Willis and Dixon.
San Francisco, May 4.—The Califor
nia Athletic' club tonight decided to.
match Abo Willis, the Australian ban
tam-weighty and George Dixon, the col
ored champion, for a fight. The purse
will be $5000, and the fight will take
place in June.
One Striker Killed and Another Wounded.
A Mine Suparintendent and His Aids
Arrested for the Killing.
Scottdale, Pa., May 4.—The coke
regions, today, were shaken from center
to circumference by just such another
scene as had been feared for weeks since
the dreaded Morewood killing. Even at
this hour it ia difficult to secure positive
information, owing to the excitement.
Trie most Tellable accounts", however,
agree that two Hungarians who
had left the works, delayed their
visit, and Superintendent Gray became
suspicious. He, with his assistants,
and four deputy sheriffs, visited house
No. 17, where their workmen were en
joying themselves. Their entrance
caused a stampede among the strikers,
and one of them, a Hungarian, rushed
out and aroused the other strikers, and
soon 200 persons were on the scene.
Gray and his deputies were followed
down the hill by the angry crowd, who
were so close that they were compelled
to back down with rifles presented. A
man named Mahan rushed up to one of
the deputies, and seizing his rifle, grap
pled with him. The deputy fired, and
the balance followed suit. In the
fusillade Mahan was killed, while ftn
other was injured. There is much ap
prehension of greater trouble at Leisen
ring, and the force of deputies has been
largely increased.
After an investigation, the coroner's
jury rendered a verdict that Mahan died
from gunshot wounds fired by unknown
persons. On information of Worthy
Foreman McSlay of the mine workers,
Superintendent Gray, Mine Boss Calla
han and Yard Boss Agney were arrest
ed for murder and taken to jail. The
testimony adduced at the preliminary
hearing placed the blame of the shoot
ing on Gray.
Some thirty families were evicted to
day at Broadford, and more - would have
been thrown out had not the deputies
objected to being stoned and struck be
cause they were not allowed to use their
revolvers on the strikers.
There is no doubt that a slow but
steady gain is being made on the men,
owing to the heavy import of labor.
Carpenters and Other Artizans' Demand
for Eight Hours.
New York, May 4.—The carpenters
in Hackensack and Newark struck to
day, for eight hours.
Pittsburgh, May 4.—The only item
of interest in the carpeftters' strike, oc
curred this evening, when a meeting of
the muster builders, betrayed a national
organization of bosses, which had
hitherto only been suspected.
St. Louis, May 4.—Thirteen hundred
more men struck today, and six hun
dred brotherhood painters propose to
receive thirty-five cents an hour, and
seven hundred sheet iron cornice work
ers are also endeavoring to enforce their
demands. The difference between the
marble cutters and their employers has
been settled.
Evansvillk, Ind., May 4.—-A coal
miners' strike was declared on this
morning. All the miners and others em
ployed in the vicinity of Evansville,
numbering about 700 men, are out, and
declare they will remain out until the
operators accede to their demands for
eight hours.
Bbazil, Ind., May 4.—At a miners'
mass convention today, it was resolved
to accede to the demands of the operat
ors, and return to work at once. They
notified the operators that they will sign
a contract individually, at the mines,
under protest, to waive their rights un
der the laws and resume work at any
hour. The rights waived are to a bi
weekly pay day, and weighing coal be
fore screening.

A Matter of Great Concern to
the United States.

Zollverein for the Commercial
Isolation of France.
associated Press Dispatches.
Rome, May 4. —The commercial treaty
between Germany and Austro-Hungary
has become a topic of comment by the
press generally. In interested ulterior
consequences, it bids fair to become a
matter of the greatest concern to the
people of the United .States. It ia an
nounced that Germany and Auatro-
Hungary have invited Italy, Switzerland
and Be'guim to join in a convention in
Vienna, for the avowed purpose of form
ing a coalition of the central European
states against the protectionist coun
tries. But what states, whose customs
tariffs are so uniform for the purpose of
protecting their interests, as are those
of Germany, Austro-Hungary and
Italy, can give out aa a reason
for the proposed coalition against the
protectionism of other countries, is a
puzzle to those who have carefully
studied the situation. It is not yet
known that Italy has consented to join
the convention at Vienna. If she
should, it would seem that the political
ties of the triple alliance are stronger
than her commercial necessities, for
among her best friends,' commercially
considered, are France and the United
States. Italy'a exports to Austria and
Germany have fallen from 197,000,000
francs in 1885 to 181,000,000 franca in
1889. In the latter year France bought
of Italy 164,000,000; in 1890, the United
Statea bought. 130,000,000.
Berlin, May 4.—The work of isolat
ing France, commercially, commenced
by the German-Austrian commercial
treaty, which baa just been signed, and
which ia to last twelve years, ia pro
gressing in a manner satisfactoiy to the
originators of the scheme. It haa al
ready been announced that Germany
has opened negotiations with Russia,
with the view of arranging tot' Russian
co-operation in the
union. Co-operation with TfugslH "at
first appeared improbable, but under
the German-Austrian treaty provision
was made for treating with other powers
reciprocally, both countries being able
to offer Russia the benefits of a differ
ential tariff.
It was today definitely announced
that negotiations for a commercial
treaty between Germany and Russia
have been commenced, and that Russia
promises to treat the matter with liber
ality if the German government sup
ports Russia's proposition to abolish
the interdiction at present placed by the
treaty of 1841 (confirmed in London in
1871 and in Berlin in 1878) upon the
passage of warshipß through the Dar
danelles. The stand which Russia has
taken in this matter is due to the fact
that two Russian vessels, belonging to
the volunteer fleet, and loaded with
military workmen and material on their
way to Vladwostock, the eastern ter
minus of the trans-Siberian railroad,
were stopped recently in the Dar
danelles, under the provision of the
treaty referred to.
Berlin, May 4. —Dr. Van Boetticher
in the reichstag, today, replying to a
question as to how the government in
tended to relieve the pressure being
felt by the people, owing to the high
price of corn, said it was impossible
to discuss the matter, pending the ar
rangements being made with other

London, May 4.—ln the house of lords
today Lord Kimberly-Dover moved that
in view of the Newfoundland assurances
that that colony would pass an act for
the due enforcement of the treaty stipu
lations between France and Great Brit

mittee on the Knutsford coercive bill
until a reasonable time was allowed.
Knutsford refused to accede to the mo

achell argued that the government
should drop the Knutsford bill, but Sal
isbury said the government had entered
into serious international obligations
with France, which must be carried
out. Kimberly'a motion was rejected,
as was also a motion by Herschell that
the Knutsford act continue in force only
one year.
Strikes of Far-Reachlng Extent—More
Rioting at Liege.
Brussels, May 4.—The northeastern
French and Belgian coal fields are in the
main idle. The men, however, are act
ing in a law-abiding manner. The only
scene of disorder which has been re
corded occurred near Liege. There was
a fight yesterday near that town, be
tween strikers and gendarmes; the
latter were getting the worse of the en
counter, and finally used their revolvers;
the result was that several rioters were

English Bricklayer* Striking.
London, May 4.—The bricklayers of
most of the centers of England have
struck for higher wages. The strike is
causing much annoyance to contractors,
and has thrown out of work large num

Liverpool, May 4. —Influenza is
spreading alarmingly here. Numerous
clergymen are ill with the malady, and

been found necessary to close the Wool

with influenza.
London, May 4.—The archbishop of
York, who is suffering from influenza,
is said to be dying.
They Will Not Afreet England's Restrict
ive Regulations.
■London, May 4.—Chaplain, president
of the board of agriculture, in
an interview today, said Secretary
Rusk's new rules for the inspection of
cattle for export, would not affect the
English regulations for admission. He
expressed himself thoroughly satisfied
with the reports of Expert Holmnn aa
to the diseased condition of American
cattle at Deptford, and attached little
importance to the opposite decision of
Dr. Wray, the American government's
etpert at Deptford, even though it waa
supported by Dr. Williams, principal of
the royal veterinary college of Edin
burgh. He' stated that Williams, in
1870, pronounced a cargo of American
cattle free from disease, and afterwards
they were found to be diseased.
The Hungarian Riots.
Vienna, May 4.—Dispatches received
from Bekea, Hungary, state that there
w*re renewed Scenes of disorder there
yaiterday. Immense crowds surrounded
the prison and demanded the releaße of
their comrßdea who were arrested. The
police preaent were unable to control
t»e crowd, and had to send for troops.
Tke military soon cleared the streets,

Toppling Upon It—Volcanic Action
Creates Topographical Changes in Chile
Panama, via New York, May 4.—-Ad
vices from the city of Bogota, Colombia,
state that the Monserrate and Guade
loupe hills threaten to slide on the city,
and tho citizens are alarmed. The en
gineers' reports show that the city is in
uaiiiinwit danger, as already some
houses have been damaged, and the
center of the city undermined by water.
Regarding the floods in Lunahuana, a
district of Chile, the Lima Opinion Na
cionale publiehea a letter saying the
beautiful valley of Lunahuana baa ex
perienced a togographical change,
and what was formerly a beautiful
spot, is now a desert. Fifteen craters
have been continually at work since the
latter part of March, throwing out
masses of mud, which, in its precipi
tate descent and with the monstrous
strength of the currents, is carrying
ruin in all directions, and sweeping
houses before it, together with the inhab
itants and cattle, vineyards, farms and
irrigation works. All the roads north
and south of Lunahuana have been
converted into ditches, through which
water is continually pouring, and all
communication between Canete and
Chinchais interrupted, while the bridge
across the river has been swept away.
There are numerous victims who have
suffered by the destruction of all the ir
rigation ditches. In fact it will be im
posible to gather the remainder of the
crop of grapes, and the certainty that
the necessities of life will reach famine
prices, has led to the suggestion that
the government should take steps on
behalf of the residents. Hundreds of
families have been left without homes
and are camping out on the hillsides.
The recent'attempt at rebellion in Bo
livia has been suppressed. Now it is
stated that an attempt to assassinate the
E resident has been discovered. A num
er of soldiers are found to have been
supplied with ball ammunition for the
Parma, May 4.—A riße in the price of
bread caused a riot here, today. Women
marched in a procession to the town
hall and demanded a reduction in the
price. A few were arrested before the
crowd was dispersed.
A Rigorous Decree Promulgated Against
the Studlsts.
St. Petersburg, May 4.—The govern
ment has issued a decree prohibiting
the Studists from holding public meet
ings, publishing tracts or otherwise
propagating the doctrines of the religious
sect to which they belong. This ban ia
extended to the workß of Tolstoi which
deal with the questions of religion and
family relations. Avowed Studists must
be so described in their passports as to
prevent them from obtaining govern
ment employment. Studists convicted
of proselyting will go to Siberia.
London, May 4.—The Telegraph's St.
Petersburg correspondent eaya terrible
seen,.* attended the Jewish expulsions,
many Jews dying 'on the way.
The misery. in the Jewish set
tlements, which are crammed with new
arrivals, is indeacribable. All speechea
and pamphlets in favor of the Jews are
prohibited. The government is con
sidering a scheme to solve the Jewish
question, which, if adopted, will
astonish and perhaps shock the civil
ized world. An Odessa paper states
that 50,000 Jews have joined the Greek
and Lutheran churches since the issue
of the expulsion decrees. Each one
embracing orthodoxy will receive a gra
tuity of fifteen roubles.
