By The nnrtALD'a Leased "iVlre.
Bkrlin, Jan. s—lt is a significant
fact that the majority of the New Year'a
'lay articles in tho newspapers review
ing the political situation were pesei
miotic in tone, expressing grave doubts
regarding Germany's future. For in
stance the lieichsbote, the Conservative
organ, deplores 63rmany's waning in
fluence abroad and wishes Prince Bis
marck back at the helm again. The
Hamburger Hachriehten criticized tho
colonial tad foreign polioy of the pact
year as being vaiillaticg and devoid of
vigor. The most sensational article,
however, appeared in the Yolks Zeitung,
the m«in organ of the Centre party,
which, in the present session of the
reichatag, is again a decisive factor.
After mentioning the general feeling of
uneasinese and uncertainty as to the
fnture, dne, it was added, to the insta
bility of the governmental machine, the
article says:
A VACILLATING EMPEROR.
"The main role in all these is played
by the individuality of Emeror William
11. No doubt he is a highly-gifted mon
arch with the best of intentions, but in
his abnormally developed feeling of sov
ereignty he induces responsible statei
men to disappear more and more from
view; more than we have been acous
tomed to, and he takes the initiative in
a field in which the sovereign has hith
erto not interfered. At all events, the
changeful decisions in the higher place
render it difficult to determine with even
a reasonable amount of certainty which
course at any given time is to be pur
sued, and induce the belief that the
present course will not be adhered to for
any length of time."
Later on the article talks of the Ealen
berg dynasty and says : "Count Botho
Zu Enlenberg planned a oonp d'etat,
and be is probably destined to be the
successor of the present chancellor." The
opinion is expressed that a constitu
tional conflict is coming, and it ia una.
vertable. These utterances, coming
from the leading mouthpieces of the
most powerful parliamentary party, are
highly significant.
BERLIN BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE.
Some of the leading Berlin newspapers
notably the Vossiche Zsitung and the
National Zeitung, speak very bluntly
also about the autocratic manner in
which the emperor bad the district
around the royal castle blooked against
all traffio during the court ceremonies on
New Year's day. The National Zeitung,
commenting on this, remarks: "The
streets of Berlin belong to the Berlin
people. This people was reoognized by
the police daring the time of William
I and it ie time this people should be
recognized." Reepeeting the alleged
utterances of Emperor William on
New Year's day, the Schsseloh Zeitung
today declares authoritatively that the
report that the emperor delivered a po
litical speech ia a "pure invention,"
adding: "He did not make the slightest
reference to politics, his few words re*
lating entirely to military matters".
AMBASSADOR RUNYON'S WRLCOMK.
The cordial manner in which Kmpero;
William greeted United States Ambas
sador Runron at the reception of the
diplomatic corps, was generally re
marked. The emperor shook hands
with Mr. Kunyon and returned the felici
tations of ths day in the purest English,
on behalf of himself and tha whole
country, coupling these expressions
with wishos for the continuance of the
welfare of the great transatlantic re
public.
Emperor William on New Year's
evening received a visit from Prince
Hobenlohe and it is understood they
diecusied the South German situation,
the approaobing visit of Prince yon
Hobenlohe to Prince Bismarck and the
measures to be taken in order to pass the
antl-revolutinn<uy bill through the
rei
The rla ie chancellor to Prince
Bis c a mere net of courtesy,
wit. g upon the political
com )vernment. The visit
will ion to the admirers of
the fallon statesman and to popular
feeling generally.
THE SOCIALISTS.
m connection with the anti-revolu
tionary bill, the Voerwaerts, the organ
of the Socialists, which has become no
torious for obtaining and publishing
secret official documents, on Thursday
last published a circular marked "con
fidential," issuod by the government
presidents of the provinces to the
police and civil authorities instructing
them to suppress on the slightest pre
text meetings held to protest against
the anti-revolutionary bill. The Social
ists are now sending to the local leaders
of their party warnings how to avoid
the seizure of compromising papers and
bow to cope with the police in the event
"f tho anti-revolutionary bill becoming
a law.
The proposal of the government to
present a bill to the reichstag raising

and reducing the duty on adulterated

A WKATjTn V CONVICT.
Goyernor Watte Pardons Jaoob M.
Eerobor or Mexloo.
Denver, Jan. s.—Governor Waite has
granted a pardon to Jacob M. Fereber,
who was sentenced to the penitentiary
in 1874 bat escaped from custody before
being taken to jail. He shot and killed
a Mexican who was one of the party
that broke into his cabin at the summit
of Sangre de Ohrlsto pass, where ho was
prospecting. Ho was convicted and
sentenced to 7 years.
The sentence was considered unjust
by Fereber's friends and one night the
jail door waa purposely left open. The
prisouer walked out and fled to Mexico,
whore be prospered. He has been
mayor of Magdalene and financial agent
uf tho Mexican government, one of the
higbeat offices that oan be conferred by
the president of the republic. Fereber's
desire to secure a pardon from the Col
orado penitentiary uriies from the fact
that he wishes again to live in the
United States, hi« health having failed.

RwpreaentatlTO Phillips Would Pay •

Labor Commission if Bo
Woro Able.
By The Herald's Leased Wire.
Washington, Jan, 5.—A rough pre
liminary oanvaas of the bouse on the
pending currency bill has been made.
One of the members of the committee,
who ie favorable to the bill, it authority
for the statement that the can
vass shows a total of 124 votes for
the bill, considerably short of the num
ber necessary to pass It. Congressman
Springer says that such oanvaases as
have been made are informal and in
exact. He will give no figures, as he
says the purpose has not been to learn
who will vote for the bill, but who are
against it, in order that the objections
may be met and overcome. Other
members interested in the management
of the bill profess to know nothing of an
exact canvass. It ia undoubtedly true,
however, thot a pretty oloae count has
been made with the result stated.
There are so many propositions, sub
stitutes and amendments pending, that
it ia probable any canvass would fail to
show the vote under the many varying
circumstances which may be presented.
The wide margin for difference of a can
vass, is indicated that the estimate of a
member, based on a canvass by state
delegations, that the bill would pass by
a majority of 20. It is also pointed out
that a vote of 12i,whiio abort of a major
ity when the full membership of the
house membsra are preaent, ia a reason
ably strong vote when any members are
absent.
THE CURRENCY CAUCUS.
Little or No Opposition to tho Demo
orntlo Afootlng.
Washington, Jan. s.—There appears
little or no opposition to the Democratic
caucus on the currency bill to be held
on Monday. It was reported today that
some southern members would refuse
to enter the caucus or to be governed by
this action. Mr. Holman, chairman of
the committee, aaid:
"I think the attendanoe will be gen
eral, even though some members may
not entirely agree with the sentiments
of the caucua majority on what ought to
be done. A bouse caucus is for confer
ence and advice and does not bind mem
bers on their votes to action."
Chairman Springer of the ourrency
committee said he had heard of no op
position to the caucus. He thought the
feeling was generally in favor of it.
Representative Bland aaid he had not
signed the request for a caucus, but he
would attend. He said he believed in
oancus attending to bring members to
gether, bat not as binding them to a
courae of action they did not per
sonally approve. When the eau
ua petition was circulated yes
terday four Demoeratio members
asked to be exensed from signing. They
explained that they wanted to see how
the petition turned out and asked that
it be returned to them. It was reported
today that Mr. McLaurin and other
South Carolina members would decline
to attend. This could not be confirmed,
however, as Mr. McLaurin has not been
in the honse since the reoess. Mr. Tal
bert and other South Carolina members
expressed a purpose of attending.
IF HE WAS ABLE.
Phillip! WonM Pay tha Expense of a
X,abor Commleelon.
Washington, Jan. 6.—lt was reported
today that Representative Phillips of
Fenneylvania has expressed a willing
ness to pay $250,000 out of hia own
pocket to meet the expense of the labor
commission in accordance with the
terms ol a bill he has presented. His
earnestness has drawn such favorable
attention to the merits of the Phillips
bill that Chairman MoCann of the labor
committee has appointed a special sub
committee, with Representative Frd.
man" of Pennsylvania at its head, to
coneider the measure. The attention of
Labor Commissioner Wright has also
been directed to it, together with Mr.
Phillips' assuranoe of protecting the
government against the expense of the
commission. As a result the bill for
PRICE FIVE CENTS
national arbitration ol labor difficulties
is for the time being in abeyance, while
the merits of the Phillips bill are being
considered. Mr. Phillips is one of the
wealthiest men in congress.
Mr. Phillips when seen this evening
said: "I did not make this statement
as reported, bat in conversation with a
friend in regard tc the bill, the expense
of the commission was mentioned. Then
I alluded to the great cost attending the
reoent coke, and the more recent
railroad strikes, net only the loss
of property and many millions of
dollars in money, but also th»
loss of life, and stating tba
cost of the bill should not laa
considered; that in fact if I were a bio I
would be willing to pay the salaries of
the commission proposed which would
amount to $240,000, or in round figtvre*
a quarter of a million dollars, and that
I wonld be willing to pay ouch a earn
provided the commission proposed \ could
be the beginning of a solution o| this
great problem. I should be very sorry
to bold out such an inducement as to
pay money for the passage of Writ bill
or any other one and would njt con
sider such an argument in its favor."
THE M'GARRAHAN CLAIM.
Smintor Taller Will Mot Bam* for the
H.lra.
Washington-, Jan. s.—Senator Teller,
who wae the special champion in tha
senate o! the late William M,'e<iarrabaa
in hie effort to establish hie claim to tha
Kancho Grande grant in California,
says be will not continue his labors ia
behalf of MeGarrahan's heirs.
"I supported McGarralaan because X
believe an injustice had been done hint
and not becanse of the money involved.
MoGarrahan took that position himself
and when money was offered refused to
compromise. Now that his heirs have)
taken np the oontest they have done so
purely for the sake of Ihe property
wbieh is supposed to be involved and
not for the establishment of a princi
ple."
The bill, it may be stated, has passed
the senate and has been favorably re
ported from the committee in the home.
It merely provides for submitting Me-
Garrahan's claims to the court of pri
vate land claims.
SAN FRANCISCO VICE.
THE BAY CITY CITY LEXOWITES
GAINING IN STRENGTH.
An Inroitlgatlon Promliai Good KeaaKa
and Any Ximbn of
S.naatlon,.
Sas Francisco, Jan. 5.— That Run
Francisco will have an investigation of
its corruption and crime similar to the
Lexow oommittee of New York is now
almost an assured fact. The oivic fed
eration is quietly gathering strength.
The promoters of the movement have,
in a broad way, oat oat for the new or
ganization a mnoh greater work than
that ever attempted by any of the many
organizations for mnnieipal reform that
have preceded it. It ia already looming
up with muoh promise.
Since the second preliminary meeting
the other night ft has quickly added
momentum from 30 more churohea and
seenlar sooieties, which will be repre
sented at the important meeting for
more definite work oallad for the isth
inst. There may or may not be a sensa
tional Lexow investigation here that will
lay bare suspected corruption and bring;
to light uncleanness not suspected be*
fore, as has the long Parkhurst campaign
in New York, bnt if the civic federation
attains half the vigor and success its)
first organizers expect it to, it wiil be
prolific of reforms and probably of sen
sations. It is proposed that every form
of vice, effioial corruption and official
negligence shall be boldly and persist*
ently attacked.
it is proposed by the ministers who
started the ball rolling and by the lay*
men who have already identified them
selves with the movement, that the fed
eration shall embrace every secular so
ciety in the interests of publio welfare)
along particular lines, from the Good
Government club and Merchants asso
ciation to the Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Children, and all the
churches and individual citizens willing
to co-operate. An executive oounoil
would thus have strong backing. Each
society would receive the federation's
support in its particular work.and would
in turn aid the broader and stronger
work of the federation.
