Prussia's Chancellor Says France Ilaa a Strong Government and Dues Not Threaten Germany. Whose Army, He Adds. Is Second to None on the Globe. Hkklin, Nov. 28.—In the reich, tag Chancellor von Caprivi said that he wat under the necessity of denying the state ment printed by The Wochenblatt that he was wearied of public life and intended tendering his resignation. Thechancelloi ■mid that ho was never in a hotter condi tion for work, and that his health is not impaired. Continuing, the chancellor ridiculed the newspapers of Herliu for, a* he termed it, "breeding the bacillus of in quietude," and otherwise referred pleas antly to the sensation caused liy The Wochenhlatt's announcement. Franc« Do«» Not Tiireutrn. Touching upon the subject of the al leged strained relations between Russia and Germany ow ing to the Cron stadt incident, the chancellor denied that there was any friction. He added that the visit ot Admiral Gervais' squadron to Cron stadt only empba sized what the ■ar whole world has * long known to be a fact, namely, that France has » strong govern ment, and that It does not threaten that of Germany, whose army is, he said, most distinctly second to none on earth, though still the improvements being made in Its organization and armament are as yet un finished. A Two Years* Compulsory Service. Finally the chancellor said that the new bill bearing upon the terras of compulsory military service, prepared for the year 1892, would he Increased in scope, and that a two years' period of serving under the colors would be one of its main features. The chancellor's speech was loudly ap plauded and lias caused a considcrabU abatement of the feeling of uneasiness which has been prevailing for some time past owing to sensational political rumore and numerous financial crashes within the past five weeks. Th« Emperor Hacked Down. There now seems t,o be no doubt that strained relations did recently exist be tween the emperor and the chancellor, but that the former had since repented of hit utterances in regard to the matters which led up to the state ot tension and that things have been smoothed over. Some idea of the sensation caused in Rerliu by from the fact that the chancellor felt called upon to make a public denial of its truth. The Wochenblatt is to be called upon tc furnish the source of its information re gardiug the chancellor and his alleged resignation. It was noticed that theeban cellor was in better spirits thau he has been for some time past, and this was at tributed to his reconciliation with the em peror. X VOS CAPRIVI. The Husso-Turklsh Alliance. Berlin, Nov. 28.— M. de Giers 1ms com municated to Emperor William and Chan cellor von Caprivi a clear explanation as to the conferences held in Paris and the character of the Husso-Freuch »'fiance therein achieved. The Russian states man's recent interviews with President Carnot, M. de Freycinet, premier and minister of war, and M. Ribot, minister of foreign affairs, resulted in a definite agreement for an exclusively defensive alliance. The alliance agreed upon differs in one most essential point from the triple al liance treaty, inasmuch as, while that makes the European status quo the basis of the maintenance of peace, the Russo French combination aims at what M. de Giers has called "respect for treaties," meaning especially the restoration of Russia's grip on Bulgaria and British evacuation of Egypt. The Precursor of Actual War, The sura of these official assurances from the Berlin embassy is that the Paris con ferences of M. de Giers have resulted in a scheme to maintain diplomatic warfare against the dreihund and England, await ing a more propitious period for engaging in actual war. M. de Giers' communies lions assume the first importance, because they constitute the first official admission of the Russian government to the powers that a Russo-French alliance has really been arranged. _ China May Ask for Help. Berlin, Nov. 28.—It is reported here ou diplomatic authority that China is unable to overcome the various forms of insur rection that confront the government and is about to beg the active assistance of England, Germany and America in tbe restoration of order. 9 Criminal Building In Washington. Washington, Nov. 28.—The coroner's jury that investigated the death of George White, caused by the fall of the Metzerott Music hall during the cyclone here, re turned a verdict that tbe accident was tbe result of carelessly carrying the side walls toe high above the front walls without other proper support, and that the owners of the building, the inspector ot buildings, the contractor and the superintendent of the work are all to blame in the matter. They Thumped the Professor. Paris, Nov. 28 —At the Old Sorbonne Professor Lacaz Kdutbiers was lecturing on geology when a vezncl full ef alcohol exploded, burning the professor seriously. The students extinguished the fire on bis clothing, pounding and thumping him about with a vigor that he claimed superfluous for any meritorious purpose. a Zfl Moral Legislation in Franea. Paris, Nov. 28.—A committee of the chamber has rejected a bill for the prose cution of men living on tbe earnings ol dissolute women. The reason given for rejecting tbe bill Is, that under French law the course of life pursued by such women is not criminal. T<> K«t»llMte Against Newfoundland« Halifax, N. S., Nov. 28.— Tbe Herald says: "The time has come for tbe Canadian people to adopt measures of retaliation against Newfoundland, in view of the per sistent refusal to extend to Canadian fish ermen privileges which we have so gener cusly extended to their people." THE REED QUORUM CASE. One of tkie F-x-sp. nkvr'i Kiilhic» Before the I'nifrd State« Supreme Court. Washington, Nov. as,— A brief bun been filed for the government in the supreme court of the United States by Solicitor General Taft in the case of the United States, appellant, versus Ratlin, Joseph & Co., known as the quorum case, brought test the legality of Speaker Reed's met hods in counting a quorum. The case comes to the supremo court on an appeal from the United States circuit court for the southern district of New York, which gave judgment against the government. Ratlin, Joseph & Co. are importers. They complain that the collector at New York collected os duty upon sixteen cases of worsted cloths imported by them more money thau the law permitted; that the act of May b, 1890, never acquired the va lidity of a law because there was not a constitutional quorum to do business in the house of representatives when the bill said to have passed that body. They also net up other matter ns a de fense. In bis brief Solicitor General Taft gives the position of the government as follows; "The presence of a majority of the mem bers of either house constitutes a quorum to do business, though they do not vote. This is shown, first, by the context of the constitution providing, in effect, that a quorum to do business may he obtained by compelling the presence of absent members; second, by the history of the clause in the constitutional convention, and, third, by the common law meaning of the term 'quorum.' "Each house by virtue of its constitu tional power to determine the rule of its proceedings may ascertain the presence of a quorum by any means or agency it chooses to select, and after such ascer tainment the house, by virtue of Its power to keep a journal of its proceedings, may, as it did heriN^Hake the journal show the truth and thereby conclusively establish the fact of the presence of u quorum. The hill received the affirmative vote of a ma jority of the quorum and finally passed." In submitting the brief to the court Mr. Taft stated that the judgment of the cir cuit court should bo reversed and that the action of the hoard of general appraisers and the collector should be affirmed. ANDREWS WANTS HALF. No Settlement Yet of the 93,000,000 Claim Against the Ex-l're*ldeot. Nuw York, Nov. 28 —The board of di rectors of the Standard Gaslight company met in secret session to consider the cose of the former president of the company, Wallace G. Andrews, who is charged with having misappropriated $3,000,000 wort h of the common stock of the company. Re peated efforts bad been made to induce Mr. Andrews to return at least $2,000,000 of the stock which he is charged with hav ing illegally obtained, but at the meeting of the hoard held last evening the commit tee reported that it had accomplished noth ing in the way of an agreement with Mr. Andrews. As there was still hope of arriving at some satisfactory arrangement, the com mittee asked further time. The meeting accordingly adjourned until next Monday, when another report wtn ne mane. Mr. Andrews has refused thus far to re turn the $2,000,000 of common stock, but he has offered to return stock amounting to $1,500,000. This offer will not he ac cepted by the directors nor by the repre sentatives of the Spinola and Mouheimer estates, which have also been required to return about $1,000,000 of common stock given to General Spinola and Mr. Mou heimer five years ago. At yesterday's meeting it was hinted that possibly Mr. Andrews would return $1,750,000 of stock, but the directors said that even if such an offer should be made it would not be ac cepted. The directors think that Mr. An drews would get off very easily if he should settle for $2,000,000, and they are appar ently determined to exact the full amount of their claim. FARMHAND HARIOT'S CRIME. Horrible Murder of Mr«. Charles Leonard at Atlantic Highland«. Atlantic Highlands, N. J., Nov. 28.— A terrible murder has been perpetrated here, the victim being Mrs. Charles T. Leonard, thirty-five years old, the wife of a well known farmer. A farmhand known as Louis Harlot, a native of Loraine, who is described as six feet high, of dark com plexion, with gray eyes, and about twenty one years old, is pronouoced to be the man who committed the crime. The motive for It has not yet been discovered. Mr. Leonard was away from home and the children misseif'thcir mother. On the return of the father a search was made, which resulted in the finding of Mrs. Leonard's body. The appearance of the remains indicated that the murder was a most brutal one. There was a rope around the woman's neck, witi which she had evidently been strangled, while the side of her head was crushed in, apparently by some blunt instrument. Harlot seen in the neighborhood by several per sons with his clothes bespattered with blood and having an excited appearance. He has disappeared, but the police expect to apprehend him. was Bio Grande Do Sot Still Rebellions.

TO OUST SENATOR BRICE John Sherman Advocates the 4 1 Election of a Republican. BEIGE SAID TO BE A NEW YORKKR. Senator Hoar Say» That the United State» Id lie Alm»»t Hure I« I»e Kniitled to Senate IVi elde That Mr. Hrlre Wa His Seat at Washington. CLEVELAND, Nov. 38.—Copies of letters received from Judge King, of Youngstown, chairman of the Republican state commit tee, show that United States Senator John Sherman, while not opposed to a contest ot the seat of United States Senator-elect Calvin S. Brice, does not deem it right for him to object to that senator taking hissent inasmuch as he would liecalled upon to act judicially If a contest should arise. Hts plan is for the Republican state committee to present a memorial to the senate and for the legislature of Ohio to assume n vacancy, elect a senator, and then let ttiat gentleman conduct the contest What Senat Hoar Says. Senator Sherman's views are coincided in by Sena tor Hoar, who has written a long let ter to the Ohio senator. In which he declares it his loSTi opinion that sena to rial precedent -J and the usages of r congress demand that the gentle man holding a cer tificate of election lie entitled to take his seat until such time nsnn Investi gation shall prove that lie la not en titled to it. It seems probable that the sent of Senator-elect Rrice will bo contested. rS&v' 7%. " SENATOR PRICK. Talking the Case Over. Columbus, O., Nov. 28.—The Republican state committee met here with a full at tendance. spoke upon the question of ousting Sen ator Brice. He said it would he impossible to prevent Mr. Brice from taking his scat. He suggested that the only thing to do was to memorialize the senate to investi gate tho question of Senator Brice's resi dence. As to tho merits of the question, Gen eral Grosvenor believed that if Mr. Brice was the man be took him to be, the mo ment the question was raised in the senate he would rise and demand an investiga tion. He would hall the opportunity to wipe a bit* from his election. Represen tative Griffin, of Toledo, candidate for speaker of the assembly, decried the whole movement. He believed Mr. Brice to be a citizen of Ohio within the meaning of the constitution, and that Mr, Brice could prove it. He feared the Republicans of Ohio were about to make fools of them islra. F.x-Congressman Grosvenor Thinks It Will Hurt the Party. President W. X. Squire, of the Republic an State league, opposed taking action against Senator Brice on the ground that it would hurt the Republican party iu Ohio. "People will call It," said he, "an at tempt to steal a senatorsblp." Judge Kennedy Is Angry. Syracuse, N. V., Nov. 28.—The county board of canvassers appeared before Judge Kennedy and reported that out of twenty three districts whose returns are errone ous only thirteen have made corrected re turns. Judge Kennedy said that the court bad been much trifled with by a high au thority, hut he would see to it that its mandates are obeyed. The court issued orders requiring Super intendent Thomas Welch, of the Third ward, and all the election Inspectors in der elict districts to show cause why the court's orders are not obeyed. It is not impossible that some of these may be sent to jail for contempt of court. Judge Kennedy said that be should di rect the grand jury at the next court of oyer and terminer to indict those who fail to comply with the election law's require ments. Indictments May Follow, Poughkeepsie, N. Y., Nov. 28.—It is re ported that Judge Barnard will be asked for a writ of mandamus compelling the Dutchess county board of ennvaasers to re cuuvass the returns on senator. Applica tion, it is also said, will be made later for the indictment of the Democratic mem bers of the Columbia and Dutchess county boards, who declared Osborne entitled to a certificate. The matter is now in the bands of the Republican state committee. Mills, Crisp and Nprlnger Confidant. Washington, Nov. 28.— All the candi dates for the speakership of the house of representatives are busy and confident of success "Claim everything and claim it boldly," is apparently the motto of all of them. Talk with Mr. Mills'partisans and you will be told that his vote may exceed even 90 on the first ballot, and that be will win in a canter. When you repeat these optimistic gen eralities at the Crisp headquarters they are greeted with a long sort of defiance. The Crisp men «re firmly convinced that Mr. Crisp is a winner. They will not ad mit that there is any probability of his defeat, except in the event that tbe other candidates combine against him. There is an air of serene contentment about Mr. Springer's headquarters. Mr. Springer is the Mark Taploy of American politics. He is genial under all circum stances. A delegation of prominent Illi noisans will start for Washington this evening to labor until the caucus is held in his behalf. Mr. Springer is developing more strength than bis opponents have thus far accorded him. The scarcity of representatives makes it impossible, of course, to predict what the relative strength of any candidate will be, and it is doubtful if IS per cent, of the number have as yet committed themselves. It has been believed that Mills and Crisp would between them divide the New Kng land vote. Mr. Springer's New England friends say that Springer will have 4, if not 8, of the 14 votes from New England. Mr. Springer also believes that be will secure« considerable vote in the northwest and southwest. Mr. Crisp will have the seven votes of the Maryland delegation, and hia friends claim the practically solid support of Vir ginia, North and South Carolina, Ala bama and Mississippi for him, as well as the major part of the New England and New York delegations. Henry George, who is here, is an outspoken supporter of Mr. ROUBLES OK THE FIELD FAMILY. Death, Illness, Insanity and Financial F in bar ras, in cuts. New York, Nov. 28.—The illustrious Field family is experiencing the truth of the old saying that misfortunes never come singly. Cyrus W. Field has been prostrated by the death of bis wife and is on a sick bed. The life of bis daughter, Mary Grace, wife of Daniel Allen L1 n d 1 e y, is de spaired of. Ills h o u, K d w a r d Morse Field, is sai l to lie suffer ing from mental derangement ; and yesterday the sus pension of the firm of Field, Lindley, Wiecliers & Co. W~~ was announced in the stock, produce and coffee ex changes. The "Field" and the "Llmlloy" of the firm are Cyrus W. Field's son and son-in-law. The assignment of Field, Lindley, Wiecliers & Co. was made to Charles W. Gould, of 8 Wall street, without preferences. Mr. Gould was the assignee of "Deacon" White's firm. Guesses at the liabilities range from $1, (Kio,mm to $4,000,000. Ou tlie Slock exchange tongues wagged fast and furious. The report that securi ties pledged for collateral were missing went from mouth to mouth. It was im possible to get a clinching verification of the rumors. It was equally impossible to get a denial, because the members of the firm kept out of the way. The assignee's chief clerk was asked what it all meant. He said that nothing more definite could he said thau that the failure bad been caused by the illness of Mr. Kield, who had the financial management of the firm and whose absence left them helpless as to ascertaining the condition of the books and flnancea It 'S; CTIUT8 W. FlKI.n. ROOSEVELT AND WANAMAKEF1. A Uriel« Reached In the Alleged Strife Between Them. Washington, Nov. 88.—The published report that charges had lieen preferred against Civil Service Commissioner Kooee velt in a report lodged with the president, which might lend to his retirement, cannot he verified. It lz believed at the postoifice department, however, that an inveatlga tion has been made under the direction ot Postmaster General Wanamaker into Mr. Roosevelt's investigation last spring of the nnti-civlt service political methods in vogue in the Raltimore poatoffice, and theie is also a general understanding that he will forward a report thereou to the president, and with it an autograph re quest that the strife between himself and Mr. Roosevelt receive a reasonable share of presidential attention. Commissioner Roosevelt is not in the city.
