Bkki.in, Dec. - The political situa tion continues grave. There is a lull for tho moment, but the prospect ie, at the reconvening of the reichstag, the difference between the government and parliament, which only began to be defined when the Socialists and Radi cals, by the clever maneuvering of Herr Singer, precipitated an adjournment, will assume the chaiacter of a real con flict. Yon Levetzow. president of the reich rtag, has wholly antagonized himself, with the government. Thus the abelv ing of tbe anti-revolution bills was also a rebuff to him and he showed his die pleasure in rather a childish way by not observing tne usual custom of wish ing the members of tbe reicbntug a merry Gbristmaß and a happy New Year, replacing those wishes by an ex pression of tbe hope that the nation and the reichstag would be spared in the New Year tbe discreditable spectacle of such a miserable attendance. In fact, Yon Levetzow felt the matter co keenly that be *ac duly prepared to resign last Monday and he was , with difficulty restrained from carrying out hia intention by the Conservatives, who pointed out to him that by resign ing he would but further embarrass the government. Un the top of these re buffs on the part of the government comes the premature announcement of Uohenlohe's salary affair. A KICK ABOUT SALARY It is known in spite of the half hearted denials of the official press that Hobeniohe mentioned to ths emperor the great discrepancy between hie pre vious salary as governor of Alsace-Lor raine and hia present salary as chancel lor of the German empire. The em peror thereupon offered to make good the deficiency from the co-called dis position fund. This projected arrange ment was little less than a ecauda), as the fund referred to is granted to tbe emperor by the reichstag for a very dissimilar purpose, namely, to assist veterans of the wars who are not otherwise provided for. The fund amounts to 3,000,000 marks annually. Prince Hohenlohe accepted tbe offer, as admitted by his own organ, the Post, but he was induced to withdraw bis accept ance of tbe addition to his salary by the violent agitation which was started by tne oppoaition preas immediately after ths facte leaked oat. The matter, how* ever, will not be allowed to drop alto gether, for the Socialists declare their intention to question the government on this subject in the reichstag. Emperon William naturally is very angry about the affair, which be deems HUNTINGTON'S MENAGERIE. _to lie n apccial interference of his pre rogative arid the manner in which the reichetag is treating hie pet, measure is i" t cilchlnted to diminish his ire. Things, in brief, hingo on tbe fate ol the anli-rovolntionary bill. Withont counting' the Centrista, the government can only rely on about 175 votes, wbich ia 24 leas than a majority. Thus, in order to pass the bill, the government needs to gain the snpport of the (Jentre party, and the iatter. knowing the value ol ita position, is little disposed to show lamb-like obedience to thegovernment's wishes. On the contrary, the members of the Centre party have already formu lated their demands nnd unless thene I are conceded their support is extremely doubtful. Tin; ANTI-RKVOI.UTIONARY bill. According to tbe Centrißt organs, the Gerinania and Kolnieche Yolks Xei tung. paragraphs ];J0 and 181 of the cuti-revolutionary bill require to be re j vised, and what is more important to j the Centrists, the recall of the Jesuits ito Germany mast be granted. As al ready stated, the anti-revolutionary bill ie re'illy an amendment of tbe existing criminal coda of tlie empire. Section 130 of the criminal code retde : "Whoever publicly and in a manner dangerous to the public peace incites different classes of the population to acts of violence against each otiier is punishable by a fine not eiceeding 600 murks, or with imprisonment not ex ceeding two years." To this the anti-revolutionary bill would add: "The same punishment m»y be inilicted on any one who in a manner dangerous to the public peace, publiciv attacks religion, the monarchy, the marriage, tho iarnily or property Witb expressions of abuse." Section 131 iv the criminal code now reads: "Whoever publicly disseminates invented or distorted facte, knowing they "are iuvented or distorted, having in view to render contemptible institu tions of the Btate or decrees of authori ties, ia punishable with a fine not ex ceeding 000 marks or with imprison ment not exceeding two years." The anti-revoliitionary bill would make section 131 read: "Whoeverpub licly asserts or dieeenainatee invented or distorted facte of which he knows or ac cording to tbe circumstances must con clude, that they are invented or dis torted, iiaving in view to render con temptible institutions of trie state or de crees of tbe authorities ia punishable with a fine not exceeding 600 marks ($150) or with imprisonment not ex ceeding two years." AN ELASTIC SECTION. The addition to eeotion 130, given above, forma one of tbe cardinal points of the bill and one over which it ia ex pected the controversy will rage with the greatest fury. It is termed an "in dia rubber paragraph" and ia ao elastic that it can be stretched at will by the executive. The amendment to eection 181 ia directed against the press and haa therefore attracted a greater stiare of at tention from tbe Garman newapapera ' than the rest of the law. It is claimed tbat under its provisions the newspa pers, organs of all parties alike, would be conatantly expoßed to prosecutions if the amendment is enacted-. Comment ing on this subject, the Voßßische Zai tong briefly called attention to an in stance in which an editor was con demned to two years' imprisonment for publishing bis belief that the policy of the government wonld involve an increase of 200 marks imperial taxation. The newspaper reierred to claima that before the editor had been mauy inonthß in prison hia prediction was far more than realized; but tbe government never TWENTY PAGES. PRICE FIVE CENTS. dreamed of milking reparation. Nego tiations with tbe Centrists with the view of revising these two sections ol the bill are proceeding and will con tinue through the holidays, and the government hopes to effect an entente on that question, as well as on that recalling tha Jesuits to Germany. THE TOBACCO TAX BILL. The nosition of the government re garding the tobacco tax bill, the second important government measure, is pre cisely similar to it in regard to the anti revolutionary bill. The Centrists hold ing the balance of power may be able to dictate tnrtber terms for themselves. In the meantime signs of estrangement be tween the emperor and the South Ger man oocrts are not missing. This week, for instance, an article appeared in the influential Nenste Nachrichten of Munich, declaring that the South Germans had been em bittered by many thiogß, but especially because of the artitioal chasm created between ths emperor and the people. Through, again. Prince Arnulph of Ba varia, lieutenant general of the first di vision of infantry of the Bavarian army and tbe son of the regent of Bavaria, I'rince I.uitpold Ims dccl ired that he was not willing to congratulate Kmperor William on New Year's day, as has been tii9 wont. It is also noticed that the newspapersof Wurtembcrg openly com ment on the iriction between the line of Wurteinburg and the emperor, and the newspapers of Baden conttiu guarded re msrka upon the same subject. All this tends to show that the ap pointment of special envoys to the courts of Munich, 8 uttgart and Oarls ruhe make more than tbe oflicial press was willing to admit, aud also that Prince Hohenlohe's mission to these courts completely failed. bis.marck's health. The health of Piince 3\9marck con tinuesjto be satisfactory to bis physician. He went direct from Varein to Freder ricksruhe. In accordance witb hie ex pressed wish there was no reception tendered him at any railroad station. Tbe prince was accompanied on his journey by Count Herbert Bismarck, Countes9 itunaea, his daughter, and Dr. Sweininger. He was received at the railroad staiiou at Frederickeruhe by the local lire department carrying torches, but there was no cheering. Emperor William has started tbe idea of erecting n monument to tbe memory of the late Herman yon Helhoze. He hag promised tho sum of 10,000 marks. According to a dispatch from Bremen the statement that negotiations are pending between the German steamship compauiea and the English companies to abolish cheap steerage ratee to Amer ica, is incorrect. Heigh of Manheim, the representative in thie couutry of Russian petroleum magnatos, denies that negotiations are in progress to effect a joint monopoly between Russian and the Standard Oil company. Adolpb Spoekermann of Philadelphia, although born at Charlottenberg, and who was condemned to pay a large fine here for avoiding military service, suc ceeded in obtaining a fresh trial thia week and on furnishing proof tbat bis father and himself were naturalized in the United states the court acquitted him aud saddled the government with the costs oi the legal proceedings.

Tokio, Dec. 8, (per steamer City of Pekin, via San Francisco, December 22). —If the judgment of the most intelligent and broad-minded people of tbe Japa nese community eontd be openly ex pressed, it would be found already fa vorable to negotiations for peace. The majority of the ministers of state are thoroughly persuaded tbat no time is likely to be more propitious than tbe present for a .'settlement tbat shall ae cive tha greater material advantages to their country, and at-the same time guarantee entire security for tbe future. They believe that additional victories may have the effect of wringing exten sive territorial concessions from their conquered adversary, but tbey doubt the wisdom of assuming respon sibilities of continental odminiatration which may prove more burdensome than Japan can bear. Their conviction is more than shared by the leaders of intellectual and educational progreee. But the military and naval elements, supported by the mass oi the people, are for the moment too powerful to ba resisted. JOURNALS WITHOUT COURAGE. No newspaper has yet the courage to bint at a suspension of hostilities, bat the government is not prepared to stand against euch a storm of opposi tion as would be provoked by a direct declaration of opinion that the punish ment and humiliation of China have gone far enough. In fact, tne govern ment is not united on this point. The militant ministers, although in tbe minority, are vehement in their protes tations that the invasion moat be pushed far beyond the present lines aud the terror of the Japanese arms be extended throughout the Chinese do minions. Many of those who nrge the necessity of prolonging the conteat do co with a sincere belief tbat the results which Japan rightly and juetly aims at cannot be oiherwiae attained; but there are also many who are animated solely hy personal ambition—whose jealousy is excitei by tbe successes achieved by land and sea and who long for oppor tunities of making their names famous. Ihey are not without influence, having rendered eminent service in former pe rmits of national trouble, and to have means of eecuring attention to their claims in the very highest quarters. I'EACE DESIRED. All theae things conaidered, the gov ernment does not think that affairs have arrived at a stage when it would be «x» pedtent to manifest a willingness to lis ten to snch proposals ac China ia dis posed to offer. But it ia something, to
