VOL. 37.—N0. 39. FRANCE AND RUSSIA. The Result of De Giers' Sojourn in Paris. A Defensive Alliance Formally Agreed Upon. Diplomatic Warfare Waged Against the Dreibnnd and England. Actual War Postponed Till a store Pro pitious Period—Russia Officially Acknowledges the Entente. Associated Prws Diioatches. London, Nov. 27. —[Copyrighted by the New York Associated Press.]— The first authentic information conveying the re sultofDeGiera'sojourn in Paris reached the foreign office through the British embaasay in Berlin. De Giers com municated to Emperor William and Caprivi a clear explanation, of the con ferences held in Paris, and the character of the Rusao-French entente. Djubtlesa the czar instructed his minister to make these declarations, in view of having not only the German but other inter ested governments learn the nature of the compact between Russia and France. According to a semi-official state ment, based on De Giers' declara tions, the recent interview with President Carnot, DeFreycinet and Ri bot, reaulted in a definite agreement for an exclusively defensive alliance. The entente agreed upon, according to the statement quoted, differs on one of the most essential points from tbe triple alliance, inaamuch that while that makes the European status quo the basis of the maintenance of peace, the Ruaso-Franco entente aims at what De Giers haa called "respect for treaties." meaning especially the restoration of Russia's grip on Bulgaria, and British evacuation of Egypt. The differences on these features of the situation are not in the meantime to be k regarded aa constituting danger of war, aa both the Russian and French governments desire to assure a strict application of the ex isting treaties by pacific means. De Giers farther communicated the fact that no treaty had yet been signed, and intimated that the French minis ters desire the concluding of a formal contract, aa alone properly defining fu ture responsibilities, and rendering it possible to pursue a distinct policy be fore Europe, while at tbe same time avoiding; the reproach of cherishing war like designs. Tbe sum of these official assurances; from the Berlin embassy is that the Paris conferences resulted in a lehetne to maintain a diplomatic war fare against the' dreibund and England, awaiting a more propitious period for engaging in actual war. De Giers's communications assume first importance, not for what they dis close co much aa because f hey constitute the first official admission of the Rus sian government to the powers, that a Rnaeo-French alliance lias really been arranged. Lord Salisbury went to Windsor to night, to place before tiie queen certain dispatches, and it is surmised they ate those which refer to the entente. • CAPR-IYI'S UTTERANCES. The Chancellor I'rofeeie* Confidence In the Czar* I'aclflc Intention*. Bkkmn, Nov. 27.—Charfcellor Yon Caprivi was present at the session of the Reichstag this morning, and in a speech referred to the rumors that he intended to resign as being ridiculous. Yon Caprivi refuted the reproaches uttered against the government on account of the so-called vacillating policy. He said tbe kaiser's journey to Russia estab lished friendly intercourse between the two monarchs, but no political matters were discussed between them. The presß indulged in too much trumpeting iv regard to the visit of the French fleet at t Irons tad t. The position of France and Russia toward the driebund was not changed. All that happened at Cronstadt was that the existing condi tion became manifest. There is no need of uneasiness; the czar's intentions are most pacific, only care must be taken to avoid clumsy errors. The czar's government was in a position to make its will prevail. Its increased confidence in the French con stituted no danger to Germany. Referring to the state of general ar mament Europe, the chancellor said this would continue much longer, unin fluenced by tbe resolves adopted by the peace congress. It was, however a mat ter of satisfaction that tbe general pre paredness for war had increased the de sire for peace. In East Africa Germany still had a long task to fulfill. She had been obliged to have recourse to the doubtful plan of a lottery; but Germany's pos sessions in Africa were ten times more important than those of England, with which nation Germany had not made a bad bargain. He said the abolition of compulsory passports in Alsace-Lorraine had been regarded as an act of weakness; but the continuance of that system as a perma nency was impossible. The assimila tion of the Reichsland witb Germany waß progressing surely. The best con necting link waa the army. After a few generations the Reichsland question would be settled. There was no cause for uneasiness on account of the army. The world's habit of estimating the worth of an army according to its num bers, was wrong. Germany never before possessed so many capable military lead ers, and no other nation had such chances for the next war. Referring to the movements of troops on the Russian and French frontiers, the chancellor said Germany, as well as Austria, had in this respect probably exceeded their duty. Too much anxiety prevailed because Russia had dispatched an army corps to a place aa near the German frontier aa Coblentz waa to the Russian frontier. The newspapers, more over, ought to be better employed than in alarming their readers by publishing reports calculated to interfere with com merce and damaging to the country. The chancellor, referring to his jour ney to Russia with Emperor William, aaid he knew the interview between the two emperors had given great satisfac tion to Russia. Nothing, he said, could shake hia convictions that the personal intentions of the czar were the most pa cific in the world. "No existing govern ment," be said, "has sufficient military preponderance to induce it to provoke war with a light heart. The stronger a government is the more easily will it avoid dangerous contretemps. It is a source of satisfaction to know that Rus sia possesses this strength. France would not have sought tbe Cronstadt meeting had she doubted that Rueaia waa strong enough to be relied upon." The British Cattle Embargo. London, Nov. 27.—[Copyrighted by the New York Associated Press.J —since Sec retary Rusk reported in favor of exclud ing Engliah live stock unless the restric tions in landing American cattle at British porta be removed, the British farming societies have actively discussed the subject. The balance of the opinion of live stock dealera distinctly support the attitude of Chairman Chaplin, of the board of agriculture, on the subject. runners' journals are giving peom iuence to announcements of recent out breaks of pleuro-pneumonia in New Jersey, with a view to enforcing the argument that before the United Statea government can legally claim admission to American cattle, it must satisfy the British government that pleuro-pneu monia is so extirpated that no cases have occurred in twelve months in any part of tbe union. A Transatlantic/Steamship Pool. London, Nov.27.—[Copyrighted by the New York Associated Press.] —The chief transatlantic steamehip companies, Ger man, Dutch and French, and the Red Star company, have signed an agreement for pooling the trade of conveying steer age and 'tween deck passengers. The object ot the arrangement is to diminish competition, which.it is stated, has long been pushed past the point where profit could accrue. FRESH COMPLICATIONS.

London, Nov. 27.—The Santiago cor respondent of the Times says the peo ple of the province of Rio Grande think the changes arising from the deposition of Fonseca are not radical enough, and complications are feared. New York, Nov. 27. —The Herald's Rio de Janeiro cable says: President "eivotto haa issued a manifesto appeal ing to the people of Rio Grande to cease all further revolutionary proceedings.

THE LOST IS FOUND. Banker Beals Recovers His Stolen Son. A Ransom of $5000 Paid for the Child. The Woman Who Abducted the Infant Arrested. The Police Looking; for Her Two Male Accomplices—The Parents Over- Joyed at the Restoration of Their Darling' Associated Press Dispatches. Kansas City, Nov. 27.—The house-, hold of David T. Beals, the banker, which was turned into the abode of grief yeaterday by the abduction of his 2-yoar-old son, was tonight transformed into one of gladnesß, the child being re covered. Thia afternoon, as related elsewhere, Mr. Beals offered a reward of $5000 for the return of the child, and no queations asked. All day today the police worked every possible avenue, but could find no clue, and parents were nearly prostrated, neither having taken any rest since the child disappeared. Tonight a man presented him self at the mansion. He wag dressed like a day laborer, and wore a false face and a wig. When Beals came to tbe door the man told him he waa a detective; that he had found the abductreaa, Lizzie Smith, or King, and her accomplices; they demanded $20, --000 raneom and he waa prepared to de liver the child for that amount. Beala declined to pay the su m, and stuck to his original offer of $5000. After much parleying it was finally agreed that the "detective" would de liver tbe child for tbat amount. Beals told the police that he had pledged his honor that the man should not be arrested while engaged in carry ing out bis part of the contract, and ordered them not to interfere. At 10 o'clock tonight the man re turned with the child, and handed it over upon receipt of $5000 in bank notes. Tbe child was sleeping soundly, safe and well. The joy of the parents knew no bounds. When a representative of the Associ ated Press arrived at the house, the child waa awake and in the arms of his father, while the mother stood by fond ling him. The child, when asked who carried him away, said: "Lizzie;" but all he knew further was that he had been "riding." ' Mrs. King, the abductress, was ar rested about midnight, but refuses to talk. She had been in Beals' house hold but a week, having' answered an advertisement for a waitress, giving the name Lizzie Smith. From the talk of other servants, it is gathered that she led a fast life in aeveral western cities, having come originally fiom Illinois. The uoliee today learned that she had been living with a man calling himself Albert King, in a cottage on Lydia ave nue. They passed as man and wife and another man lived with them. They rented the cottage a short time ago and furniahed it on the installment plan. It was through the notes they were traced. King haa not yet been found. There is no doubt that ho ia the accomplice of the woman in the abduction plo r , per haps tbe originator of it. It is not known if the other man, who haa also not been found, had anything to do with it or not. Late tonight it was learned that the police caught tbe woman in a house in Park avenue. She said she went on the veranda Thursday evening to get a paper, when two men rushed up, thrust a revolver in her face and ordered her to get the boy. She waa thoroughly frightened and did ao. Then the men carried her to a carriage, drove her about for some timo nnd then turned her adrift. The police declare that the story is too thin. From papers found they learued that she haa recently been in Denver, and tbat King, who passed for her husband, was released from the penitentiary in Colorado last summer, after a five yeara' term for horse-ateal ing. The Denver police say both are well-known crooks. STRUCK A WAT Kit VKIN. The Drain Tunnel In the Ontario Mine Flooded.

Columbus, 0., Nov. 27.—At a meeting of the state Republican central commit tee, tonight, held to consider whether any step should be taken'to teat the eligibility of Calvin S. Brice to the United States senatorship, on the ground that he ia not a resident of Ohio, a let ter waa read from Senator Sherman, stating tbat Briee'a certificate from the I governor would probably be considered prima facie evidence of his title to the seat. This, however, did not determine the right to the seat if it could be shown that he waa not an inhabitant of the state. In his judgment, the only way to institute an inquiry would be by a joint reeolutionof the general assembly. The majority of the speeches were against action being taken by tbe com mittee, tbe claim being made that Brice had established the point of citizenship.
