Associated Press Dispatches.
Bbblin, Nov. 28.—[Copyrighted by the
New York Associated Press.]— The de
bate in the reichstag on the budget to
day was unwontedly lively. After Herr
Bush(National Liberal) Bpoke in defense
of the policy pursued by Bismarck as
chancellor and commented adversely
upon the course adopted by Caprivi,
Herr Babel, the Socialist leader, criti
cised the rapid increase of the imperial
debt and the army and navy appropria
tions. He contended that it was inevit
able in the event of war that a number
of German states should become bank
rupt. How, he asked, could such im
mense masses of troops be long moved
and fed ? Expressions had recently been
used which conveyed to these masses of
soldiers the idea that they might be em
ployed not only against foreign foe, but
also against an enemy within the em
Agitated murmurs from every part of
the house followed this allusion to the re
cent utterance of the emperor. Herr
Babel, continuing, said, with every
thousand new recruits the social de
mocracy was being more and more
strongly infused in the army. As
Chancellor Yon Caprivi had pictured
journalists as only propagators of un
rest, he felt bound to say that many
orators were engaged in the work of agi
tation, and cited as an instance a speech
recently delivered at Erfurt by a high
At this point Uie vice-president, Count
Ballehtrom, interrupted the speaker,
refusing to allow the emperor's speech
to be subjected to criticism.
Herr Babel said he would leave his
comparison in the hands of the public,
who well knew it was not the journalists
that spread thefeelingof unrest through
the country.
Touching the protectionist policy, he
said the heavy tariffs imposed by the
government, coupled with the military
expenditures, created enormous eco
nomic difficulties. A slight re
duction in the corn duties in
the treaty of commerce with
Austria was not sufficient to offset
the want of proper nourishment from
which millions suffer, the result being
an enormous increase of disease, mor
tality and crime.
The structure of tbe middle class of
society, Babel continued, was built in a
swamp in which is was slowly sinking,
probably to make room for another and
better social organization. The coun
try had got rid of one enemy of social
reform when Bismarck was driven from
Here Count Ballestrom again called
Babel to order, declaring that the ex
pressions used in connection with the
ex-chancellor's name could not be per
mitted, being directed against an ab
sent member of the house.
Babel replied that Bismarck had not
yet taken his seat in the house and
proceeded with a denunciation of the
government, which ho asserted was fol
lowing aa far as it dared in Bismarck's
footsteps, while assuming the role of
protector of the working classes.
Chancellor Yon Caprivi said he be
lieved the country appreciated the
efforts made by the government for the
amelioration of the lot of the working
The assurances of peace given by De
i tiers, the Ruseian foreign minister,
during his stay in this city, had close
connection with the negotiations of the
Russian government with Berlin finan
ciers. Despite the recent declarations
of the government against German cap
ital propping up Russian finances, sev
eral big firms here and at Frankfort
sent agents to hold a secret con
ference with Vishnegradski, Russian
minister of finance, when he passed
through Frankfort on his way to Paris.
The reports of financiers coquetting
with the Russian treasury becoming
known, caused a revival of tbe attacks
by the press upon Russian finance.
These attacks are partly inspired by the

A dispatch from Rio de Janeiro today,
states that tbe German minister to Bra

important place in the manufacture of
soap in Germany. Hitherto manufac
turers used linseed oil piocured in Rus

there they were compelled to look in
other directions for a supply of oil.
East Indian linseed oil was tried, but
the experiment was unsuccessful. An
eminent chemist, after many experi
ments, decided that the oil obtained
from corn was best suited for the uses of
manufacturers. The latter are now ob

the chances are that the trade will equal
thirty or forty million bushels yearly.

Twentjr-one Men Burled Under a Macs
ot Rooks.
Tacoma, Wash., Nov. 28.—Thomas
Murphy, Alexander Gilchrist and
Benjamin Flattery, laborers on the
Northern Pacific railroad, make affidavit
that twenty-five men or more were killed
in the land slide on the Northern Pacific
at Canton station last Wednesday. Two
men were reported killed at the time.
Murphy makes affidavit, corroborated
by others, in part as follows: "Instead of
two men being killed, to my knowledge as
an eye-witness, or as near as I could under
oath testify to, there are no less than
twenty-five men still buried under the
rocks and earth in the bed of the river.
There ■ were sixty-two men working di
rectly in front of tbe bank at the time
it gave way. They had no way of es
caping ; some turned to run along the
track, others jumped down the
slope of tbe roadbed and tried
to reach the river, but the slide came
with such force and rapidity that it
swept the track, men and tools, and
buried them under as it swept down the
slope and into the river. Last Thurs
day night we made search for all the
evidence we could find to try and ascer
tain how many were buried. The re
sult was twenty," and there must be sev
eral more whose names were not
Abortionists Sentenced.
Paris, Nov. 28.—The sensational trial
at Batignolles of Mme. Thomas, the
abortionist, is concluded. She has been
sentenced to twelve years' imprisonment
at hard labor, and Floary , her male ac
complice, to ten years' imprisonment.
Of fifty-three female victims tried with
her, two were sentenced to a year's im

A Graphic Account of the Assault on the
Baltimore's Men-Police Aided in and
Abetted the Whole Affair—The Blue-
Jaokets Brutally Murdered.
Chicago, Nov. 28.—Probably the most
intelligent account yet received in this
country regarding the Chilean massacre
of the United States steamer Baltimore's
men, reached here today in a letter from
one of her officers, B. W. Wells, to his
father. Writing under date of October
20th from Valparaiso, he told of excit
ing occurrences; he said the men had
no liberty since the middle of Augnst
until the day of the massacre, and were
only granted it then after the captain
requested the police to protect the men
incase of any trouble on shore. The
men went ashore and strolled about
quietly and orderly. About 6 o'clock
the boatswain's mate, Riggin, one of the
best men in the crew, had words with a
Chilean sailor. Another of the Balti
more.! men came up and said some
thing, when the Chilean spat in his face
and was promptly knocked down. This
started a row, and soon the two
men were surrounded by a crowd
of Chilean sailors, ronghs and boatmen,
outnumbering them forty to one. Rig
gin was stabbed in the neck and sunk
to the ground. The other man, fearing
a like fate, started to run, but was pur
sued and stabbed in the back seven
times. Another man came along and
picked Riggin up to carry him away,
when a squad of police fired. A bullet
passed through the shirt of the man
holding Riggin,and piercing the latter's
neck, lodged under the shoulder blade.
The other man, seeing the brutes load
ing agoin, dropped Riggin and ran.
The next heard, Riggiu was seen in a
cart dying, while a crowd of Chileans
applied epithets to him. He died in a
short time. The Baltimore's officers
found people who could identify the
policemen who did the shooting.
About 7 p. m. another man was
brought off, stabbed twice in the back,
one wound penetrating the lung. All
night a howling mob was after the Bal
timore's sailors, caught them singly and
brutally beat and stabbed them. There
were a number in the hospital badly
wounded, when the letter was written,
and the number who escaped with cuts
and bruises was large. In fact, as the
young officer says, the sick list the day
after the affair was bad enough for a
regular battle. He expresses the ut
most indignation, saying the affair was
brutal and cowardly. He is sure our
boys were set upon without warning,and
says: "Don't lose sight of the fact that
Riggin was shot by a policeman while
dying from a stab wound."
Several other men, while running to
save their lives, were cut at by officers
with swords. Men were held up and
robbed in broad daylight in the streets
of Valparaiso, and one of the Baltimore's
officers walking down to the landing
was spit at. Besides all these there
were a dozen other things, such as spit
ting at the flags of the Baltimore's boat
while at the landing, kicking the men
in the boats, etc. Tho night of the
fight one man was so hard pressed that
he jumped oil the landing, and stones
were thrown at- him while he was in tbe
water. A boat from an American mer
chant ship tried to pick him up, but
was driven back.
The young officer adds that from all
reports the police abetted the whole
Kidnapers Spirited Away.
Kansas City, Nov. 28.—Public indig
nation over the kidnaping of Baby Beals
has all alone been at a high pitch. A

ugly that the police considered it pru

Eloquent Appeal for

Associated Press Dispatches.
London, Nov. 28.—Gladstone was to
day a participant in the exercises at
tending the formal opening of a hall at
Port (sunlight, near Birkenhead. He
made an addreas of considerable length,
devoting much attention to
Salisbury's argument in his Binning-?,
ham speech, and declared that Salisr
bury seemed ignorant of what was going
on in the British empire. Salisbury
had called home rule a "cap
suled medicine." Doubtless he
was an authority on physic, as
he had had to take several nasty doses
in recent years like that at the Moulton
election. Salisbury had talked of com
ing massacres and cruelty in Ireland if a
hame rule bill was passed. The premier
was like a silly nursemaid who, when
unable to pacify a child by rational
means, tried to frighten it with stories
of hobgoblins. Let the people dismiss
such imaginations. They must be
patient until Lord Salisbury gave them
an opportunity of deciding the question,
then t nev would see such bubbles blown:
into air, and the reign of justice and
good sense restored in politics. Two
reasons for placing home rule in the van
of the Liberal policy were justice to Ire
land and the necessity of clearing the
road for other legislation.
Speaking on the labor question, Glad
stone said tbe problem could be solved!
only by sound, civil, secular and
Christian feeling and respect for mutual
rights. Profit-sharing was attractive,!
bnt there was a question what to do!
when there was a loss instead of profit.'
Strikes were only adapted to what he)
might call the rude atate of industry.)
Much might be hoped from co-operative;
distribution and production towards the
solution of the problem, because this;
would give the laborers the same posi
tion and feeling as the capitalist.
In an eloquent peroration, Gladstone;
appealed to his hearers to give the
workers besides increase of wages and
decrease oT"hotfrs, a sense of common/;
feeling with their employers; to estab
lish a brotherhood of man and man ; to
look to the heart and conscience, as
well as to appetite and ambition for a
solution of tbe difficulties, and above
all to look to the Providence that shapes
our ends, and recollect the sacred words:
"Behold how good and pleasant a thing
it is for brethren to dwell together in
Great Respect Shown for the Dead Au
thor and Diplomat.
Paris, Nov. 28.—The obsequies of the
Right Hon. Edward Bulwer Lytton, earl
of Lytton, British ambassador at Paris,
who died suddenly in this city Tuesday,
were held today in the English church.
The ceremonies, which were very im
pressive, were attended by an immense
number of people. Among those pres
ent, besides the family of the dead
statesman and author, were many of his
personal friends: men who have won
high positions in the literary world;
all the members of the diplomatic corps
at present in Paris, and a laige
number of members of the French sen
ate. The church was crowded, and
hundreds were unable to gain admis
sion. The celebrated French painter
Bonnat had just finished a portrait of
the earl, and this was placed on an easel
which stood at the head of the casket as
it lay in the church.
After the services in the church the
body wus conveyed to the railway sta
tion, en route for England, where it will
be interred. The route taken
by the cortege from the church
to the railway station was lined
by 3600 troops, who had been detailed
for duty by the French government.
Five thousand persons have called at
the British embassy and inscribed their
names as a mark of respect to the dead
Reid, American minister to France,
sent a beautiful wreath which was
placed upon the bier. Reid was present
at the funeral services. All the minis
ters of state were also present. Presi
dent Carnot was represented by General
Brugere. Prominent among the mourn
ing assemblage was Princess Matilda
and Prince Monaca. The services were
fully choral, and the scene was a most
impressive one.

He has also issued a manifesto demand

Grande are not inclined to comply with
Peixotto's demand. If the revolt is
continued Peixotto will use all the
power in his command to put it down.

Balfour Declares That Ireland Will
Never Obtain Home Rule.
Glasgow, Nov. 28. —Balfour, first lord
of the treasury, who visited this city for
the purpose of being the principal
speaker at a Conservative meeting held
here, declared positively that Ireland
will never attain her desire to
have a parliament sit in Dublin.
'In the course of his remarks,
Balfour said whatever the success of the
government policy in Ireland, it at any
rate has been a sincere policy. The
first duty ol the government was to see
the laws obeyed, and by wise adminis
tration and expendituie of money to en
deavor to increase the happiness of the
people in every part of her majesty's
dominions. In conclusion, Balfour de
clared that no matter what the future
might bring forth, it would never bring
home rule for Irelrnd.
The Real Cause of Unrest is Discontent
With the Tartar Dynasty—The Re
bellion Assuming Alarming Propor
London, Nov. 28.—The Times this
morning publishes a dispatch ftom its
correspondent at Shanghai which con
firms the reports that the troubles in
China are not alone based on the anti
foreign feeling entertained by tbe na
tives. Thiß is but one phase of the sit
uation. The underlying reason for the
discontent which pervades many dis
tricts of China is the fact that the
natives of the country believe the
time is ripe to overthrow the
Manchu dynasty and to establish
again the native dynasty which was
. overthrown in 1644. The movement haa
in view the driving of the present em- !
peror from power and placing a native
Chinese ruler upon the.throne.
The Times' correspondent says the
rebels have already captured Chayoang,
in the province of Leaotong, or Shing
king, in Manchooria. They are rapidly
gaining accessions to their ranks, and
have quite a formidable army. They
are marching on to the capital, Pekin.
The imperial forces are preparing to
meet them, and it is believed a desper
ate battle will soon be fought. Intelli
gence that the rebels are marching to
the attack of Pekin has caused the
greatest excitement iD that city.
