(Spain ami Portugal Also Threatened with Violent Demonstrations—Ex tensive Preparations to Sup press Disorders. By the Associated Press.] London, April ISO.—Up to midnight telegrams received trom the continent indicate that in Germany and Austro- Hungary, as in England, the May-day celebration will partake the passive character of popular fetes. On the other hand, in France, Italy, Spain and Bel gium, the authorities are making pre parations as if to suppress a revolution. At a cabinet meeting in Paris, today, it was decided that it would bo highly dangurous to abate the repressive meas ures already taken in the slightest de gree. The minister of justice instructed the public prosecutors and examining magistrates to remain in their offices throughout the day tomorrow. No die orderly bands of people will be allowed to assemble or penetrate to the city. The government is most apprehensive of trouble in the industrial centers, and has requested the leading manufac turers lo use their influence to calm the workmen and assist ttie detectives in picking out men of notoriously Anarch istic proclivities. A I/ABM IN ITALY. A dispatch from Rome says : Feeling of public alarm is less acute that on the eve of last May day, yet feverish symp toms are manifest, arising from the numerous recent arrests. Bomb explo sions are reported tonight from Forli, Solarolo and Voghera. Many arrests have been made. At Ancona a Socialist meeting was broken up and forty-eight of those in attendance arrested. Arrests continue to be made at Milan, Turin and Bari. On the whole, official reports from the provinces are reassuring, still no precautions are being neglected against any possible outbreak. The garrison in every large town is strongly reinforced, and a virtual state of siege has been declared. Processions and public meetings are forbideen, and strict orders have been issued that the slightest disorder is to be at once sup pressed. PKICAUTIONS IN SPAIN. Dispatches from Madrid report that the workmen, having been prohibited from engaging in outdoor demonstra tions tomorrow, have resolved to hold in-door meetings. The military will be nnder arms throughout the principal districts of the kingdom. The minister of war has sent out circulars instruct ing military commanders not to hesitate to assume supreme command if the ne cessity arises. Detachments of civil guards will protect the telegraph lines. The greatest precautions have been taken in Barcelona. The French An archist Blondel, who is believed to have been a companion of Ravachol, was ar rested there tonight. POBTUOUESE PRECAUTIONS. At Lisbon the troops are confined to the barracks, and have received orders obe ready at the first warning to act. No disorders are expected to occur at Oporto, but the authorities have taken every precaution necessary to prevent or quell any possible outbreaks. THE OUTLOOK IN BELGIUM. Brussels, April 30. —There are very general preparations throughout Bel gium for the celebration of May day. Reports from various industrial centers indicate that the labor organizations will devote the day to meetings, pa rades, etc. These, it is believed, will be entirely peaceful. In most places no special measures have been taken by the police. Bertrand, the leader of the Socialist party, says the demonstrations will be peaceful, with two objects: To demand a normal day's labor and uni versal suffrage. incensed anarchists. Bkbne, Switzerland, April 30.—The prefect of police at Lausanne, by mak ing preparations to prevent an Anarch istic demonstration on May day, has incurred the enmity of the Anarchists. Today a bomb was exploded in the house of his mother, wrecking the build ing, but fortunately the occupants escaped unhurt. Several arrests have been made. GEBMAN CELEUBATION. Beblin, April 30. —May day will be celebrated here by meetings at various breweries, beer gardens and public halls, with speech making and singing. No processions will be allowed, either here or in most of the other large cities of Prussia. ITALIAN DYNAMITERS. Rome, April 30.—A petard, loaded with dynamite, iron scraps and stones, was exploded at the Massimo palace this morning. A similar explosion oc curred in the cafe" Rossini at Forli. Arrests of Anarchists continue through out Italy. BACKBONE BROKEN. The Great Strike of Coal Winers in Dur ham Nearly Ended. London, April 30.—The backbone of the disastrous strike in Durham has been broken by the action of the miners themselves. There is a prospect, slight though it is, that the trouble will soon be ended. The miners voted in favor of jftll members not connected with pits owned by members of the Mine Owners' association, resuming work. Twelve thousand men will thus be enabled to go back to work at once. The miners connected with the Mine Owners' asso ciation pits continue to strike, but it is thought that with the pits of the other owners working, the association owners LOS ANGELES HERALD. will efl'ect a compromise with their men. The partial resumption of work will en able many iron works and factories to open which shut down because of the stoppage of fuel, and the distress that resulted from the stoppage of work among their employes will be alleviated. » MILBANK'S VICTIM. Mystery Still Burrounds the I,ate Sen sational Duel. London, April 30. —A friend of Mil bank said tonight Mil bank's adversary in the duel was the Duke de Morny,and that he was so badly wounded that he died on the field, and hie corpse was taken aboard the yacht, which was lying off the coast. A dispatch from Paris states positively that the Duke de Morny was seen in that city today, and denied taking any part in a duel. Milbank has not yet returned to London. A The Deeming Trial. Melbourne, April 30.—The Deeming trial waa continued today. Expert medi cal testimony was taken as to the condi tion of the body of the murdered woman. The cross-examination en deavored to show that the character of the wounds indicated that Deeming was insane. Departed Cruiser*. San Dikoo, April 30.—fhe cruisers Boston and Baltimore left for San Fran cisco this evening. WATER TUNNEL OPENED. TFIE REAR VALLEY COMPANY'S LATK:!T IMPROVEMENT. Seven Ilnnilrecl Inches of Witter Sent Down to Klalto, Aleisanclro and Perils. .Special to the llkrald.l Tunnel Camp, near Redlands, April 30. —At 7 o'clock this . morning the water was turned into the new tunnel which is being constructed by Prof. S. Leonard of Los Angeles for the Bear Valley Irrigation company, from the plans of Chief Engineer Taylor. Over 700 inches of water was running through the tunnel all morning, and distributed to the thirsty fields towards Moreno, Alessandro and Perris. The great im portance of the tunnel is shown by the anxiety with which the ranchmen watched its development, and the joy with which they greeted this, its first trial. The structure is half a mile in length and is over three times as long as that at Olive. It penetrates a mountain about half-way between Redlands and Ales eandro. All the water for this end of the San Jacinto valley will go through it.- The water comes from the Mentone mountains, eighteen miles from this camp, and arrives here from its source in forty-five minutes, as clear as crystal and as cold as ice. The construction of the tunnel has taken a remarkably short time consider ing the many interruptions to which the work has been subjected. During the progress of the tunneling the water supply depending upon the structure for transit has been limited, and periodically there would come a large and violent kick from the ranchmen. In these instances the Irrigation company has been com pelled to interrupt Contractor Leonard. Such an interruption begins today, and 700 inches,of water will run through the tunnel for one week. The force of men employed here have almost all left tor Redlands, San Bernardino and Los An geles. A week from Monday the water will again be shut off, and work will be resumed. The entire tunnel is already floored with cement concrete, topped with cement plaster. The side walls are of brick masonry, laid in cement mortar, and are finished with cement plaster. The whole tunnel will be arched over with brick, and when completed will have a clear aperture of 6)4 feet. Chief Engineer Taylor, Supervising Engineer le Comte de Musiere and the officers of the company have inspected the work and are highly pleased with it. CONDENSED CABLEGRAMS. The Anglo-Scotia mills and large fac tories near Nottingham burned; loss, $500,000. A coffer containing valuables belong ing to the Prince of Wales was stolen from the railroad station at Lyons. Miss Katherine Arnold, daughter of Sir Edwin Arnold, has been married to Edward Hamilton-Earle, son of Vice- Admiral Vesey Hamilton of the British navy. Viscount Cuelsea, eldest son and heir of Earl CadogAn, has been married to. the Hon. Miss E. Mildred Sturt, daugh ter of Lord Allington. . The German bark Thalia, Captain Meyer, which sailed from Hamburg February 2nd for Adelaide, foundered at sea. The sole survivor was landed at Blythe, England, by a vessel which res cued him. The court of inquiry at Bremerhaven investigating the stranding of the North German Lloyd steamer Eider, ascribed the disaster to a mistake on the part of the navigating officer, whose sounding, it declares, was manifestly erroneous. The Italian minister of agriculture and commerce has issued a circular an nouncing that the government will offi cially take part in the Chicago exposi tion, through the various chambers of commerce in Italy, but not directly. The government will give moral support and patronage to the exhibition of Italian products, and a ship of war will be designated to transport the exhibits to New York. Heavy snows have fallen in Puaterthal, Austria, and now incessant rains are melting the snow, and the great quan tity of water is loosening the side of one of the surrounding mountains, which threatens a land slide of disastrous con sequences. The whole side of the moun tain appears to be moving, and the debris is damming the River Trave. It is feared the water will overflow the banks and do immense damage.

Berlin, April 30.—fCopyright, 1892, by the New York Associated Press.]— The latest reports from all the industrial centers in Germany show every prospect of a peaceful May day celebration. The authorities have taken every precaution to prevent any disturbance, and police will be centered at every important point, ready to act upon the first indi cation of disorder. Enormous excursions to the country will be made from every large town. The fetes in Berlin include concerts, chorus singing and fireworks. The Socialists have engaged sixty beer houees. at which the landlords have un dertaken to hire only Socialist waiters. The leading Socialists oppose any illegal action, declaring that if the Anarchists attempt to create disorder, the Social ists will be the first to deliver them to the police. The Independent Socialists will hold separate demonstrations. Only at Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Lubeck will processions be allowed. Since the Paris explosions entrance to the Berlin schloss is restricted, nobody being allowed to enter without a special pasa, and even then accom panied by a soldier. tub kaiser's latest speech. The emperor's visit to Baron Stumm has given fresh umbrage to the working men. He harangued Baron Stumm's workmen and bestowed the highest eulogies upon the factories and regula tions for the workmen, declaring them models that all Germany ought to imi tate. The speech was coldly received, as Stumm's arbitrary treatment of his employees and his pitiless discbarge of any man suspected of Socialistic views is notorious. The grand banquet he gave the emperor is the talk of the newspapers, and cost over 20,000 marks. landtag debater. The debates upon the reassembling of the landtag lacked the expected l in terest. The Conservatives and Centrists appeared timid, and did not definitely define their position toward the govern ment ; they confined themselves to acri monious speeches, censuring the govern ment for its withdrawal of the primary educational bill; while the Progression ists unanimously predicted the triumph of the Liberals at the general election. miquel's financial schemes. The financial reforms proposed by Herr Miquel, minister of finance, will shortly be debated in the landtag. They are certain to meet with bitter opposition. His schemes will be at tacked as a piece of state Socialism. He proposes to make an income tax progressive, exempting small incomes, and he will introduce a new tax, mak ing interest pay more in proportion than earnings. Minister Miquel expects to increase the revenue. _ This increase will enable him to re linquish tax on land and industries, amounting to 100,000,000 marks, to the local authorities. His most unpopular proposal is to create a tax on beer, which the Centrists will especially attack. Probably in the face of the opposition, Minister Miguel will abandon the proposed tax. capbivi's weakened position. Surprise is expressed at Chancellor Yon Caprivi going to Carlsbad, leaving to Count Yon Eulenburg the burden of the debate in the landtag. The general belief is that the chancellor wishes to emphasize his withdrawal from the pre sidency of the Prussian ministry, and leave Yon Eulenburg to handle the reins of important debate unaided, and thus gauge the future influence with which the chancellor will have to reckon. It is an open fact that the chancellor's position has been weakened by recent events. He has a less share in the emperor's councils than for merly. With the retaining of Herr Kalseborn- Schan as minister of war, there are now two ministers (the other being Yon Boetticher) who hold views at variance with the chancellor's on certain ques tions, though the difference is not serious enough to lead to a rupture. PREMIERS TO MEET. Yon Caprivi will return to Berlin to meet the king and queen of Italy when they visit here, in order to hold a con ference with the Marquis di Rudini, the Italian prime minister. There is little likelihood of Count Kalnoky, the Aus tro-Hungarian prime minister, being present at the conference, as it is prac tically certain Count Kalnoky and Chancellor Yon Caprivi will meet later in the summer. RUDINI TO BE SUSPENDED. Humors of another impending rup ture in the Italian cabinet have arrived here. Signor Nigra, the Italian anfbas sador at Vienna, is mentioned as a possible successor to Rudini. The be lief in political circles is that the crisis will be tided over. PROPOSED ITALIAN LOAN. It is thought that the proposal to float an Italian loan here to assist in the military expenditures of Italy does not meet with favor. That the German market is little inclined to absorb the new loan yet awhile is shown by a drop of half a point in Prussian and German loans wben it was reported ttmt the projected German loan would be issued immediately. The announcement in the Reichsanzeiger that the loan would not be issued until the end of the year allayed all fears and led to the recovery of prices. EMIGRATION OF PRUSSIAN I'OLRH. The emigration of Prussian Poles, chiefly to the United States, is rapidly growing heavier. The augmentation is attriouted, not only to agricultural de pression, but to the general fear that war with Russia is inevitable sooner or later. lIHRR JAEGER'S DOWNFALL. Information is received that Jaeger, the defaulting chief cashier of the Rothschilds, is in hiding in Brussels with a mistress, who is at the bottom of the whole matter. Reports received of increasing trade Btarted a proposal to run a service of steamers between New York and Par amaribo to compete with the existing Dutch and English lines. A CORNMEAL PLANT. Mr. Murphy, special agent of the United States to introduce the use of cornmeal, states that the German gov ernment is now establishing a cornmeal plant in one of the largest mills at Magdeburg. RUSSIAN EPIDEMICS. Rev. Mr. Francis, rector of an Ameri can church at St. Petersburg, passed through here en route to London, worn out by his exertions on behalf of the famine sufferers. He sayß smallpox and typhus fever are making fearful ravages in Russ'a, and unlesß strong precautions are taken those diseases will spread th:oughout Western Euiope. ANOTHER FATAL FIRE. A HAIOCAUST IX A SUHURB OF NEW VOKK CITY. A Girl Dashed to I>e;ith by Jumping from :> Window—A Number of Children (.'reunited. New York;, May I.—At 1:45 o'clock this morning fire was discovered in the cellar of a three-story brick house at 189 Broadway, Williamsburgh. On the sec ond floor lived John Sohalter, wife, four daughters and son. The family became panic-stricken, and despite warning cries and shouts one of the daughters, Maggie, jumped from a window and was horribly mangled. The third floor wbb occupied by Thomas Tubbs. There were ten in the family, five of whom are miss ing. A 2-year-old baby and one of the sons were taken to the hospital fright fully burned, and it is thought they can not live. The firemen found Benjamin Tubbs, 12 years old, on the third floor, badly burned about the face and hands, and overcome by smoke. A fireman carried out a 2-year-old baby, and others did equally good service. Smoke drove the firemen out finally, and it was then found that five children of the Tubba family were still missing, and it could not be learned whether the children were still in the building. Several of those saved were burned and sickened by smoke, and were removed to the Eastern District hospital. At 2:30 the fire is not under control, and the people living in the houses ad jacent to the burning building are run ning into the streets half clad, or with their clothing in their arms. At the last repoit it was generally believed that five of the Tubbs children perished in the flames. SCUDDKH'S BLOODY COAT. An Attempt to Smuggle Tell Tale Evi dence Out of Jail. Chicago, 111., April 30.—Mrs. Henry Martyn Scudder, wife of Dr. Scudder, now in jail on the charge of murdering his mother-in-law, Mrs. Dunton, at tempted today to take from the jail a coat which is valued as evidence in con nection with the coming trial. She visited the prisoner today and told the jailor, as she went in that her little boy would come for her husband's soiled clothing. The boy came and was given a cumbersome bundle. The boy passed the turnkey and was on the point of leaving the jail when he was halted. Mrs. Scudder ap peared on the scene and first threat ened, then begged and pleaded that the boy be allowed to pass rflit, but without avail. She held the buhdle until it was forcibly taken from her possession. The bundle was examined and the overcoat in question was found. Dr. Spray, who is attending the alleged murderer, on behalf of the state, discovered blood stains in the pocket of the coat some time ago, and the prosecution propose to build the theory that it contained the weapon with which the murder .was committed. States Attorney Longen ecker admits that blood spots were found in the pocket of the coat, and says the garment has been put in safe keeping and will be produced as evi dence against the prisoner. SHOT THROUGH A WINDOW. An Attempted Highbinder Murder In San Bernardino. Special to the Herald.| San Bernardino, April 30.—Ah Gow, a bad Chinaman, shot Ah How Hang tonight at 3 o'clock through a window. The bullet entered Hang's wrist, sever ing an artery and passing out of the palm, making a bad wound, bleeding profusely. Officers are now looking for Ah Gow. Constable Hamilton arrived from Ban ning tonight with two men named James McHaney and Harry Webster, charged with cattle stealing. At the preliminary examination both were held in the sum of $1500 each to answer, and will bo able to give bail for their appear ance. The Charleston at San Francisco.

UNCLE REMUS MADE A MISTAKE when he tied his 1 mule's halter around his leg while he reached for his bridle; he afterwards re marked that "he done gone seed his mistake before dat mewel had dragged him a rod.'' Seeing your mistake will not alter the fact, if you make a bad bargain. Yesterday an elderly gentleman, accompanied by his wife, after purchasing of us a nice, genteel suit for $20.00, remarked to our salesman, i'l see you do as you advertise in this store.'' I "To what do you refer ?" said the salesman. I "Why," said he, "you don't worry a man to § buy, and you let him take his time. We g were in a store down the street, and the sales- j| man pestered us so much to buy what we I didn't want, that we soon found we had made j a mistake. You folks seem to have just i what people want, and there is no occasion m to try to force customers to buy what does | not please them." There you have it. That's H our position exactly; that's our success. Just i what the gentleman remarked, in a nutshell. i RIGHT GOODS! RIGHT PRICES ! RIGHT TREATMEN T ! !
