The Grain Duties Must and Will Be Reduced. Emil SeMfert Succeeds in Getting a New Trial. i The Sleek Adventurer Likely to Oo Free. A California Scandal—Other Cable News. Associated Press Dispatches. Berlin, June o.—[Copyright, 1891, by the New York Associated Press.J If popular discontent were allowed to manifest itself on free lines against the government's decision to maintain the corn duties, Germany would be ablaze with demonstrations. Since Chancel lor Yon Caprivi surprised the country, including the agrarian party, with his declaration that the existing tariff must remain until, at least, treaty negotia tions with other* nations were arranged, dissatisfaction among the workingmen has become exasperating. Political par- ties which are open to popular emotions are becoming permeated with a sense that the government has made a mis take and must ere long reconsider its decision, in the face of the increasing prices of cereals, especially rye, which forms the staple of the people's food. Even the official press speaks in an apologetic tone of the attitude of the government. The North German Gazette stands almost alone in sustaining energetically the ministerial policy. As the landtag will close within a fortnight, there is small hope that the opposition will get time to conduct parliamentary agitation. They are, therefore, preparing for a campaign in the country. The Socialists are ac tive. They value the situation and will give energy to the opposition movement in every populous center. Many meet ings have been held this week. The Socialists met with an enthusiastic re sponse when they branded the ministers as starving the masses to the advantage of the classes. ' Within the cabinet, it is reported, dissensions are strong. The union of industrial associations, after a prolonged debate on the proposal to hold an international exhibition in 1896, appoinated a special commission to visit Chancellor Yon Caprivi and ask him to ask the government for the ap proval of the scheme. « ' A CALIFORNIA HCANBAL. A scandal attaches here to a well known professor at the university of California, Who is charged with sending his young wife and two grown danghters of his first wife to Germany and leaving them without support and refusing them the money necessary for return borne. It is possible that the professor has an explanation which is not known to the people here who are interesting them selves in the family. THE JEWISH EXODUS. The committee for the relief of Rus sian Jews report many injured Hebrews arriving at Charlottenburg. These peo ple were wounded while fleeing from the Russian police. A number of jews were killed while trying to escape over the frontier. The exodus ie assuming such vast proportions that private charity will soon be powerless to cope with it, and the government will be compelled to interfere. ADVENTURER SEIFFERT. Emji Seiffert, the American-German adventurer recently sentenced to two years' imprisonment fordefrauding Mrs. McGuire, of Detroit, Mich., has succeed ed in getting a new trial. As Mrs. Mc- Guire has returned to the United States and refuses to appear against Seiffert, it is likely that he will go free. Seiffert met ;Mrs. McGuire in California and made love to her. He Induced her to visit Europe and then defrauded her of large sums of money. He subse quently eloped with Miss Flani gan, of Washington, Mrs. Mc- Guire's companion, and married her in London. He returned to Berlin after this and commenced blackmailing Mrs. McGuire. He was tripped up on his blackmailing scheme, however, was arrested, tried and convicted, and sen tenced two years. Mrs. McGuire then returned to America, thinking Seiffert was disposed!of. [This is the same Seiffert who cut such a wide swath in social and musical circles in Los Angeles and Pasadena, the winter of 1887-B.—Ed.] WEBFOOT TOURISTS, Col. and Mrs. Montgomery of Port land, Ore., have left Berlin for Marien bad. They gave a dinner Wednesday before leaving. MAXWELL'S FIGHT. Action Deferred Till a Committee of Cal lfornlana Arrives. Chicago, June 6.—After an interview today with Walter S.

Rumors of war continue to reach here from Salvador and Guatemala. Both thae governments have warned the LOS ANGELES HERALD. foreign residents to secure their pass ports. There was a slight revolution here last week. President Rodriguez, when he became president a year ago last Decem ber, pledged himself to separate the church and state. Since he has been in power, it has been the other way, and it is charged that the priests really con trol the state.

Iqukjue, June 6.—An interview with officers of the Itata today confirms the news that the arms and ammunition were transferred from the Robert and Minnie many miles from the coast.

New York, June 6. —A dispatch has been received at the Chilean legation from Chile, saying the story of the com bat at Valparaiso between the insurgent steamer Magellanes and three vessels of the government on April 28th, is en tirely false. balmaceda's stealinos, A Chilean gentleman residing in Vash ington, has received from friends in Chile, copies of papers the insurgents are pub lishing. In one is a manifesto by the congressinnalists, warning the people of all countries that Balmaceda has shipped to Europe $4,000,000 in bullion, which was required by law to be kept in the Chilean treasury as a guarantee of the paper currency. The manifesto alleges that Balmaceda can give no security that this fund will not be used for personal objects, and when he is driven from Chile by the people, he will use the money to support himself in luxury abroad. All bankers and others are cautioned against accept ing or handling these moneys, which will be demanded by the constitutional party when it obtains power. THE BLANCO ENCALADA. The government denies the report that the Blanco Encalada, which was sunk by torpedoes, is not so badly damaged as supposed and can be raised and repaired. A MIXED CASE. A Story of Involved Marital Matters from Santa Ana. A complicated case of divorce, adul tery and marriage is noted as occurring at Santa Ana on Friday. Mr. Henry Huggins, of that city, secured a marriage license authorizing him to wed Mrs. Dora Benton. According to the Press of Santa Ana "Mrs. Dora Benton nee Smith is the divorced wife of Wilburn N. Smith, who is today on trial for adultery, he having been charged with living with this divorced wife, while being the law ful husband of a sister of Mr. Huggins. Does tbe reader follow the thought?" Wilbur N. Smith arrived in Santa Ana in last February, with the woman who figures above as Mrs. Benton, and a boy, and registered them as his wife and child, at the Richelieu hotel. Soon Henry Huggins put in an ap pearance, saying that Smith had been married to his sister by Dr. Cantine, in this city, and a 6-months'-old baby was the result. Huggins found that his sister was in Colorado, where she had been deserted by Smith, and that she was working as a servant to support her child. At Colton, previous to marrying Miss Huggins, Smith lived with wife number one, Mrs. Benton, but on going to San Diego they were divorced. After deserting wife number two, at Colorado Springs, Smith proceeded to San Diego, aud, according to the ex wife'a statement, inveigled her to come to Santa Ana. She says he promised to reform and remarry her, but that he fulfilled neither of these promises. According to the Press, then, Mr. Huggins is now the husband of his brother-in-law's divorced wife, for living with whom after the divorce Smith is now in jail on a charge of adultery. SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 7, 1891.—TWELVE PAGES. MACDONALD IS DEAD. Canada's Premier Passes Peacefully Away. The Great Man's Wonderful Combat with Death. He Could Not Die So Loner «« His Will Power Remained. The Entire Dominion Plunged 1b Grief. Lady Mac Donald Prostrated—A Biographical Sketch. associated Press Dispatches. Ottawa, June 6. —Sir John Mac Donald ia no more. The distinguished states man who has guided the destinies of Canada for nearly half a century, passed peacefully away at 10:15 tonight, sur rounded by his entire household. Lady Mac Donald, who bore up so bravely dur ing his fatal illness, is now prostrated with grief. All the church bells are tolling, and thousands of citizens are expressing deep regret at the premier's demise. For hours the members of tho house hold had been watching at the bedside, waiting to see life depart. Although the physicians declared last night that Sir John could not survive until morn ing, they had not made allowance for his marvelous vitality. He had lost consciousness thirty hours ago, and had taken no nourishment since, save small quantities of champagne, which were administered with difficulty." THE UNEQUAL STRUGGLE. The premier, sick unto death, kept up the unequal struggle until after 10 o'clock tonight. For days, it is as sumed, he resisted the inevitable by sheer force of his powerful will, but yesterday his consciousness disappeared, never to return. In the ensuing period nature, now no longer restrained, as serted itself. Life's fire, already burning low, flickered and smouldered as though the soul would not leave its earth ly : tabernacle. ALL HOPES VANISHED. At 10 o'clock this morning hundreds who called to make inquiries realized that all hopes had now vanished for ever. The news from the sick room was' more discouraging than ever. A strange and leaden color over-spread his counte-' nance, and his extremities as sumed an icy coldness. Once or twice the watchers at his bedside thought death had come, and Dr. Powell, hold ing the premier's pulse, discovered only a faint trace of life. Lady Mac Donald for three, hours before the sad event never left the room, for an instant. Tb% other watchers inoluded Mary, her in valid daughter; Hugh John Mac Donald, the premier's son; Job Pope, Sir John's faithful private secretary, and near friends of the family. THE FINAL COLLAPSE. At 10 p.m. a complete collapse set in. In the succeeding few minutes the pre mier's breathing became more and more labored, and only the slightest flutter of the heart indicated life's presence. At 10:16 the premier gave a few long and heavy inspirations, and, without a struggle or the slightest evidence of pain, passed away. An undertaker was promptly notified to prepare the body for embalmment. The funeral is likely, to take place Tues day next, and will be of a state charac ter. On that day the body will likely be removed to the senate chamber and lie in state for four or five hours. The interment will subsequently take place at Kingston, Ont., where the premier's first wife and father are buried. A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH. [Sir John Alexander Mac Donald was born in Glasgow, Scotland, January 15, 1815; emigrated with his parents to Kingston, Ont., in 1820; received a grammar-school education and took up the law as his profession, being admit ted to the bar in 1836. He entered pub lic life in 1844 as the representative of Kingston in the Ontario assembly, of which he continued a member until the union of the provinces in 1867, when he was elected to the house of commons of Canada. He soon became the foremost statesman of the Dominion, and in 1871 _ negotiated the treaty of Washington, for which ser vice he was rewarded by being called to the privy council of Great Britain, an honor seldom con ferred on a colonial statesman. He had many other high honors conferred upon him, and, although several times de feated at the polls in the course of his political career, few statesmen of any country have more uniformly command ed the confidence of the people. Sir John bad natural abilities of the highest order, was an authority on constitu tional law, and ranked high as a public speaker and parliamentary debater. His bitterest opponents never charged him with being governed by avarice or per sonal ambition in his conduct of public affairs. The Baseball Record.

Reopening of the State Board of Trade Exhibit—Commander Veazey's Recep tion—Criminal Proceedings, Etc. San Fkancisco, June 6'—The em ployees at the mint have been agitated for a week or two by the rumors that the end of the month may see a whole sale dismissal of coinmakers. It is said that the reason for such a step would be the stoppage wholly, or in part, of the coinage .of silver, and it is believed this poiicy, if adopted, wonld affect al! the branch mints in like manner. The superintendent said today that he had as yet received no orders to reduce his working force, but he had heard various reports as to the suspension of silver coinage at the end of this month, which closes the fiscal year, and he would not be surprised to receive official notice at any time of such change. He said that there was now in the vaults of this mint $36,000,000 in silver dollars, but that there was storage room for at least that much more, so the reason for the suspension of coinage could not be lack of vault room.
