A Cable Letter from the German Capital. THE RISMARCE-MORIER AFFAIR. An Official Apology Required of Sir Herbert—General Notes. Copyright, 1889, by New York Associated Tress I Beruk, January s.—Count Herbert Bismarck last night gave a diplomatic dinner at which Count Schouveloff, Russian Ambassador, and M. Herbette were present. During the course of the evening Count Herbert, speaking to Count Yon Hatzfeldt, German Minister to England, promised, under request of the Emperor, to exonerate Sir Robert Morier, British Ambassador to Russia, from any charges connected with the Bazaine incident. This result was com municated to Morier, who expressed himself as satisfied. He says as official prints make the charge there must be an official withdrawal. Lord Salisbury, in personal communication to Prince Bis marck, asks him to order a direct state ment that the whole charge is absurd. COMMENT ON THE MORIER AFFA IR. The papers to day generally comment on the Morier affair. The Vossiehe Zeitung remarks: "The accusations against Morier rest on the controversial assertion of a man who is no more. No evidence can be adduced in support of the charge, therefore it cannot be re garded as convincing." The Zeitung says it is only surprising that the plain contradiction between Marshall Ba zaine's statement to Major Yon Deitz and the well known historic facts should not have been perceived by Yon Deitz himself, who seems to have been willing to forge a weapon wilh which to strike at, the memory of theEmperior Frederick. The Freisennige Zeitung says: "The German people await what Count Her bert has to say officially on the matter. As things stand, German diplomacy has not covered itself with glory over the question." The National Zeitung holds that Morier in his appeal to Count Herbert was over confident. Comments suggest a similar question as to whether Prince Bismarck and Count Herbert will come out of the affair as slanderers or as cowards. Morier, ac eoidint; to the sentiment of the English Embassy here and the general feel ing in official circles, will com pel Count Herbert to apologize. In the meantime the semi-official press shows no signs of abating the attacks on Morier, rather trying to support the as sault. To-night's Berliner Borsen Zeitung has a vaguely worded official statement declaring that the Government has proof as to the means by which Morier obtained information concerning the movements and offensive plansof the German troops, also how he made use of the information Dy sending it to the London Times. GENERAL NOTES. Emperor William and the whole court went to-day to the Grunewald to hunt wild boar. Lieutenant Weissman, whose regiment is the Second Life Guards, is now at tached to the Foreign Office for special service in East Africa. In consequence of this appointment the Emm Relief Committee has relieved Weissman from all connection with the relief expedition, and has nominated Dr. Peters chief leader in place of Weissman. Weiss man's post under the Foreign Office is understood to be that of Imperial Com missary of Germany , and has nothing to do with the East Africa Company. The Landtag is convoked for the 14th inst. A measure will be presented in creasing the King's civil list 300,000 marks, this sum being additional to the amount requested from the Reichstag. The semi-official papers argue that the allowance should be more ; that accord ing to the feeling in Berlin it ought to be double the amount asked. wilhelm's "happy new year" to bismarck. The Jieiclt»ralhgzei<jer has published a rescript from Emperor William to Prince Bismarck, bearing the date of December 31st, which reads: Dkau Prince—The year which has brought us such heavy visitations and such irrevocable losses draws to an end. It is j<y aud sorrow to think that you still stand loyally by my side with fresh strength to enter upon tbe new year. From my whole heart I invoke upou you happiness and b esßings, but above all, un interrupted good health. I trust to G'>d that I may still ba perm tted to labor with you for tbe welfare and greatness of our Fatherland. Siguedl Wilhklm. THK SOUDAN. Story of a Deserter from Osniau Digna't Camp. Suakim, January 5. —One of Osman Digna's lieutenants has deserted his leader and has arrived here. The de serter reports that the rebels are enraged with Osman Diana for seizing their effects and their wives. Osman gave as his reason for such a course that the rebels chewed tobacco, which is contrary to the precepts laid down by the Mahdi. He also re ports that 2,000 dervishes at Handoub are squabbling with Osman Digna concerning the evacuation of that place, a majority of the dervishes being desirous of retiring from the town. The deserter declares that Emm Bey has been captured, and that he is a prisoner at Khartoum, where he is well treated by his captors. Prof. Ueffelten Released. Bbrlin, January s.—Prof. Geffeken, who has been in custody on the charge of being responsible for the publication in the Deutsche Rundschau of the diary of the late Emperor Frederick, has been re leased and the prosecution abandoned. The Freitsennige Zeitung after remark ing that Prof. Geffefcen spent ninety-nine days in prison says: "Prince Bismarck records a grievous failure before the whole world; such a thing has scarcely ever happened before, in the course of his Ministerial career. The North German Gazette ignores (he Morier correspondence. The Conserva tive journals print the letters, but none of them comment on the affair, except ing the Reichsbote, which expresses the I hope that the era of unedifying personal asoirations will soon end. It is now asserted that a bill will be presented in the Reichstag for a credit of from twelve to fifteen million marks for the purpose of increasing the artillery strength of the army.

In every place visited, the same general opin ion was expressed that an exhibi tion in London on a large scale, such as might be gotten up on an appropriation of $250,000, which would be asked for at the coming session of the Legislature, would be a splendid thing for the indus tries of the State. Ln every iu stance where the question arose as to the preferability of expending $50,000 for representation in the coming World's Exposition at Paris or au appropriation of $250,000 for an exhibition in London, the latter course was indorsed as tending to further the State's interests to a greater extent than the Paris exposition.

Kloters Arrested, ut Newcastle—Wel lington Strike Huchauged, Seattle, January s.—Two companies of militia were sent out to Newcastle early this morning, having been sum moned by a message from Sheriff Coch rane.

He states that the Mexicans bad been grazing a flock of sheep near the company's range, which brought on the trouble, and that the Mexicans on Thursday ambushed some of tbe company's men.
