NO. 9 FROM THE KAISER'S REALMS His Majesty Is Pleased at En- thusiasm Aroused BUT BAVARIA WAS SNUBBED Indications of Friendliness Betweeu Oermany and Russia The Government Manifests an Intention to Suppress the Socialists -Louis Ster" Will Serve His Time Associated Press Special Wlra BERLIN, Oct. 19.—Copyrighted, 1895, by the Associated Press.—The enthusiasm which has been aroused in Alsace-Lor raine by the presence there, during the past week of the emperor and empress of Germany, has pleased his majesty great ly. At chateau d'Urville, for instance, while the throng of people; outside was thickly lining all approaches to the castle and cheering vociferously, the emperor remarked to General Yon Haanke: "This looks indeed as it this has become once more German soil." The empress' manner throughout was pleasant and urbane in the extreme and the kin 1 words which the empress ad dressed to the deputation of the ladies from Metz seemed to make a deep inir persaion upon them. While going over the battlefields around Metz, his majesty requested no explana tion, having studied the ground thor oughly so as to be familiar with every foot of it, naming at a glar.ce the villag»s, fjrms and hills dotting the country, re marking: "That was where the brave Forty-sixth lost so many men, etc." The fact that not a single member of the Bavarian royal house was invited to the fates at Woert.i was much commented upon and especially as the late emperor Frederick personally commanded the Ba varian troops during the war and the lat ter shared largely in the triumph of the German arms at the battle of Woertb. The official press furnishes no satisfac tory explanation of the fact. Politically the chief event of the week has been the visit of Prince Lobanoff- Kostovsky to HuberstOOk, Emperor Will iam's shooting box, which is held to be a fact of prime importance. Commenting on this visit well-inform ed officers said to a representative of the Associated Press: "TbU visit is much more than one of courtesy. It is intend ed to show France and the rest ot Europa that the new ruler of Russia means to entertain friendly relations with Ger many. CountJ Lobanoff-Rostovsky left Gurmany with the conviction that tbis country's policy is'a'n outspoken, frank policy of peace. 'Ho was also enlightened regarding the relations between Germany and Austria. During the audience, tbc emperor repeatedly assured Count Loban off-rtostovtskv of Germany's keen desire to maintain friendly relations with Rus sia, and during the dinner which follow ed his majesty again referred to this sub ject, remarking in drinking to his guest that he hoped the misunderstandings of t.ie past would be forgotten and that they would not recur." In order to praotically tsst the avail ability of fast passenger steamers, tho government bos chartered the Hamburg- American line steamship Normannia.aud during the autumn and winter will use her in dispatch and reconnoitering service. Four naval officers and a score of other naval men will be detailed on beard of her, in addition to the Nornian nia's regular crew. A regimentof German infantry will re ceive Bix bicycles of the most improved construction for use during tho army maneuvers and future use in time of war should there be ncceisitv for them. Ibe passage of tne speech which Herr ljiobknecht made before the socialist con gress at Breslau, for which be is cnarged witli lese majeste, referred to some re cent remarks of his majesty which thu socialist leader described as "an utter once bred partly by ridiculous conceit and patrly oy burning hatred." The editor of the Hanover socialist journsl, which was tho only publication which dared to print the above remark, has also Deen arrested ana charged with lese rosjeftto. It is the government's manifest intention to deal severely with Herr Liebknecht and also, if possible, to suppress the socialist organ, Vorwaterts. by legal police interference. At a pub lic meeting held in the pantheon at l.eipsic. on Tuesday last, at which Herr Liebknecht was the chief speaker, the meeting was stopped and the audience was dispersed by the police after the ora tors had been speaking twenty minutes. The Emperor Frederick Memorial church will be dedicated on Monday next in the presence of the emperor, and on the twentv-iifth anniversary of the capit ulation of Metz, Octooer 27th, as a memorial to Prince Frederick Charles, who captured the city of Metz. will ba celebrated in grand style. The recruits of the guard- corns will swear allegiance the same day. A dinner will also be given. The emperor has conferred the honor of a special gala court uniform upon the senators of the Berlin academy of line arts. The uniform closely resembles toe costumes of the veteran senators. Herr Xoltner's two-act opera, Die tlebrefal, based upon an episode of the war of 1870 71, was performed this week at Munich. The experiences with the military ser vice, according to statements credited to General Brousart yon Ziepelldorf, the minister of war, are unfavorable, and tho matter, it is claimed, will bo brought before the ,'eicnstag. Yielding to*2tba [advice ofj his friends and lawyers, Mr. Louis Stern of New York, it is understood, has reconsidered his intention of forfeiting his bail, 80,001 marks, and now intends to undergo the two wesks' imprisonment to which lie was sentenced, in addition to a line, for insulting Baron Tuellgen, deputy com missioner of tbe spa at Kisaencen. In this case, Mr. Stern will undergo his sentence in the state prison at Shwein furtb. Mr. Henry Gilbert, the United States consul at Liege, Belgium, announces his engagement to Miss Mar&aret Bulow, daughter ot tne Prussian general and sister of an officer of the guard corps. The family is wealthy, and Mias Bulow ha., a dot of 120,000 marks. The merchants of Sonneberg are much offended about the reports in circulation in American papers of tbe alleged utter ances of Mr.Dwigbt J. Parolli.the United States consul at that place, in which he is quoted as bavins charged them with lystcniatic undervaluation of goods which tuor have exported to America, thus avoiding payment of duty. Mer chants have organized for the purpose of forcing Mr. Parolli to retract, and in or der to obtain other satisfaction they will interview him on his return to his post from America. Meanwhile they have ap pealed for redress to the United States consul-general at Frankfort on the Main, in whose territory Sonneberg is situated.

A Fractious Horse Gels Beyond His Rider's Control Mackay Is Dashed Against a Tree and the Injuries Received Cause the Young Han's Death PARIS, Oct. 19 —The tollowing paitio ulars of (lie death of John W.MacKay,jr., have been obtained. For some days past Mr. Mackay and two friends, Messrs. Lynch ana Digby, iisve been trying some horses, whoh they had lately purchased, over hurdles and ditches on a course laid out by Mr. Mackay on the estate of the duke of Gramont, department of Sarthe, which he bad rented. Contrary to the ad vice of his friends, Mr. Mackay yesterday mounted a particularly restive horse which had been ridden before by Mr. Lynch on Thursday. As a result the horse bolted from the track and rushed through the thickets. Mr. Mackay suc ceeded in dodging several of the trees,but he was finally overcome by the exertion, lust all consrol of his horse, reeled in the saddle sud finally collided with fearful torce against a tree, which he struck with his head. The collision hurled him to the ground, and when his friends rushed to the spot they found him suffering from ghastly wounds in the head, both of h ! s eyes being crushed. All immediate at tempts to restore the unfortunate young man to consclounsess proved futile, and he was carried home and the doctors were called. The latter, after three hours of atten tion, succeeded in restoring their patient to consciousness, hut he had several re lapses and expired at 9:l»0, after shaking hands with and saying good-bv to all his friends, whom he recognized by the sound of their voices. His last farewell was to a favorite dog which would not leave his bedside. No member of the Mackay family was prssent at the death bed. Mr. Lynch came to Paris to inform Mr. Clarence Mackay, brother of tne dead r.'.an, of the terrible accident and suc ceeded in persuading him not to go to the castle, whejo the remains rested. Mrs. John \V. Mackay left Paris on a trip to Normandy, but she is expected back in Paris at tiny moment, when the sad news will be broken to her. The body will be embalmed and brought to I'aris on Monday next, after which it will be exposed to the view of the friends of the family in a chapellc ardont at Mrs. Mackay's residence on the Hue Tilsitt. SAN FKANCISCO, Oct. 19.—John W. Mackay struggled with grief today. Ho remained secluded in his rooms at tho I'alnce hotel all day. The clerks at the counter were given instructions to send no cards to bis apartments and but few of the many people who called to see him during the day were admitted to his chambers. Cornelius O'Connor, Herman Oeirichs and Manager Storror of the Mackay-Bennett Cable company were about the only people who saw the stricken millionaire during tho day. Mr. Mackay was not only prostrated by grief but was also worn out physically, for bo remained at tho ottice of the cable company or waited in his room until an early hour this morning toobtain further news from I'aris of tho death of his eld est son. On account nf tho grief of the father not much could be learned today of his in tentions regarding the inteiment of his son's remains. Directions were sent to i'aris to have the body embalmed. It will probably be brought to this country and buried either in New York or San Francisco. It is likely that young Mackay's grave will Lo in this country, for this city was his oirthplace and ho took great pride in the fact that ac was a California!!. Both sons, In fact, were very proud of their American parentage. When tbe young men were here some time ago, "Willie" frequented the University club, whore ba had a number of ac quaintances. He often said there and at other places that he would like to make this city Ins home. Though he had been educated in England ami much of bis life bad been passed abroad, he was infatu ated with tbe city ot his birth and was anxious to remain here. Young Mackay is described by those who Knew him in this city as a reserved, unpretentious gentleman. Though bis father is one of the rich men of the oartn and the master of vast interests, and though the son per sonally held a very prominent and im portant position in tbe commercial world, he was ot simple and unaffected habits. He won many Iriends here, for be was a bright young man who displayed a great aptitude for business. He was intensely American, a fact that was well-known abroad. If be had lived Willie would have Been bis father's successor in Dusiness. Though only 25 yean old he was trusted greatly by bis father, who saw in him evidenoes of great business ability. He was a graduate of Oxford univsisity, England, and for some time after leaving college represented his father's interests abroad. On November 14, 1890, he was appointed president and genersl managei of the American Fortecito Powder Manu facturing company. He was also a di rector and a mem net of the executive committee of the Commercial Cable catn pany and of the Postal Telegraph Cable company.

THE PRESBYTERIAN SYNOD Considers the Case of the Con- tumacious Minister NO CONCLUSION ARRIVED AT There Arc Lively Discussions Upon Dr. Howard Will Address the San Jose Y. M. C. A., Which May Be More Contumacy SAN" JOSE, Oct. 19.—At tbe session of the Presbyterian synod this morning the commission appointed to bear the com plaints and appeals regardinu the First churuh at Los Angeles met, W. R. Noble presiding. The deposed pastor, Rev. B. E. How ard, was represented by Attorney Gal breath nnu Revs. Criig and Henderson. The first quostion before the commission was whether the appeals of Howard from alleged errors made by the synod of Los Angeles should be entertained. The en tire forenoon was occupied in warmly discussing this question without arriving at any decision. The afternoon session of the synod was a lively one. The discussions on reports were exceedingly heated. The committee on narrative and home rjissions reported and the reports were adopted. The committee on mileage re ported in favor of the payment to mem bers of $1,219.10. The report was odopted. Tho presbytery of Los Angeles presented an overture asking to have all lawful means taken to innke the state synod a representative body upon such a basis as shall be approved by the presbyteries and asked to have committees appointed to carry out the object. Tiie committee on overtures reported in favor of the sug gestion and after one of the most heated debates of the session, some of tbe oppo sition characterizing it as gag law, the overture was laid on the table, which effectually killed it for this season. It is evident, 'however, that another deter mined fight will b3 made in the noxt synod to secure ths adoption of the plan suggested by Los Angelcr. The seminary committee recommended the adoption of Rev. Frazior's resolution to the extent that one minister and one elder be appointed from each presbytery to compose a board of commissioners to have entire control of tne San Francisco theological seminary. The motion to adopt brought forth another heated dis cussion and some sharp and lively talk which occupied tbe time allowed for dis cussion, and further hearing was post poned until Monday at 2 p. ra. Dr. Howard has consented to deliver an address in Y. M. C. A. hall tomorrow afternoon, and this msy nave some sig nificant meaning, both to the doctor and the synod of California, for tbe res sen that the Los Angeles synod has officially and emphatically declared that tbe de posed pastor shall not under any circum stances speak or take part in public ser vices. The moderator, appointed Revs. John Hemphill, S. S. Palmer and J. X. Mc- Lean, Elders G. C. McConnell and F rank Walker a committee to attend the examination! it San Francisco Theolog ical seminary. This evening at the Second cburch a popular meeting was held at which Rev. H. 0. Minton talked of home missions and Rev. John Hemphill on foreigh mis sions.

At 8 p.m. a mass meeting of the Young People's society will be held in the First church, at which Revs. J. E. Wheeler and R. F. Coyle will deliver addresses. This alternoon wis occupied by the commission appointed to bear complaints ami appeals regarding the First cburch at Los Angeles, in discussing technical ities as to appeals with the result that tbe commission decided in favor of allow in« a hearing on the appeal of Pastor Howard Against the action of the presby tery in suspending him for contumacy Various Subjects CAUSE FOR WORRY and allowing to be hPard the complaint by Elder Gordo:: against the presbytery for its action on a report in reference to the decision of the First church.

FORTY YEARS OF POLITICS Raises a Tempest in the Re- publican Teapot DE VOUNu ON SHERMAN He Denies tbe Assertions of Corrupt Bargaining The Senator'! Blighted Ambition to Be Pres ident Responsible tor the Bitter an J Unjust Criticism SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 10.-M. H. do Young, vice-chairman of the Republican national committee, makes several crit icisms of Senator Sheramn's new book entitled Recollections of Forty Years in the House, Senate and Cabinet. "If I had a political enemy," said Mr. do Young ,"I should be pleased to have him write a book. Senator Sherman errs where ne sayo that one man controlled the New York delegation to the Repnbi can convention of 1888 and that a corrupt bargain was made in the interest of Har rison during an interview between the adjournment of the convention and Satur day night and tne time when it leassem bled on the next Monday morning. In tiie tiist plaoe the Now York delegation was controlled by Warner Miller, Frank Hiscock, Chauncy Dcpew and Thomas C. I'latt, It was well known when the convention assembled that tho New York delegation was for Depew lirst and Har rison second. I was working tor Hlaine, so when Dcpew withdrew f?om the "gut on Friday 1 moved to adjourn until the next day in order to prevent a stampede to Harrison. The New York delegates were firm tor Harrison as a second choice, however, and he received their support without a corrupt baraglll havine been made as Senator Sherman alleges." Mr. do Younj said tho senator's criti cism of Garfield was cruel, as it was not justified by facts. "I believe many of the harsh state ments in tho book may be attributed to Senator Sherman's disappointed ambi tion—the persidjncy,' said Mi.de Young. "In this connection it may be said that the senator's ambition would proba bly have been realized long ago if he had not taken such an extreme stand in favor of a gold standard. MILWAUKEE, Oct. Id.—To an Asso ciated Press reporter, A. J. Aitkins of tbe Evening Wisconsin said today: "I attended the national Republican convention that nominated James A. Garfield for president in 1880, and was present at all sessions. I heard all tho nominating speeches, and remember the speech of Mr. (iarlield nominating John Sherman in behalf of the Ohio delega tion. The opening of this speech was such that no man who heard it can for get it. Not only the matter but the man ner of Mr. Garneld m the opening of his speech indicated great zeal, truthfulness and earnestness in his nomination of Senator Sherman. 'Iliero was no sentence in any of the speeches comparable in my idea to the opening sentence of that speech. The balloting went on from day to day until the thirty-sixth ballot, when Mr. Garfield was nominated with a whoop and hnrrih.as every one icnows. The night before bis nomination 1 called upon Mr.Garfield with a view to securing his consent to accept the nomination if tendered to him. Mr. Garfield, in reject ing all overtures, could not be mistaken by any man who heard such an interview as 1 had with him, and it is due to the truth of history and the momory of Mr. Garliebl that be made no trade or ar rangement by which lie should receive the nomination. Ho was taken up by the wbl'lwfnd as autumn leavts and car ried lntu the presidential cbair.' COLUMBUS, 0., Oct.l!). —Kx-Governor Foraker. being asked what he knew or thought about Senator Sherman s new boak, replied : "I have not seen the book. Ido not know anything abont its contents, but if, as stated in the newspapers, it criti cizes prominent Republicans, I sm sorry the proof sheets coulu not have been withheld until after the election." SARATOGA, N. V., Oct. lU.— So strict Do You A small ad Place your ad Want In THE HERALD Foragirlin A situation? Reaches over The HERALD THE HERALD 40,000 People Want I Z"™* A day Cohans ia the quarantine maintained that <!on j eral Harrison cannot be reached. A re uorter called at the McKee cottage early this afternoon to seek an interview with the ex-president on Senator Sherman's book, and sent a note to General Harri son, but no written reply could be re tnrned, as quarantine regulations prevent anything being passed out of the scarlet fever chamber. CINCINNATI, Oct. I.—Hon. W. A. Bnterua'*, who was one of the delegates at large to the national Republican conven tion of 1880 from Ohio, and who has been a close friend of Senator riuerman in all the letter's contests for the presi dential nomination, returned from Bos ton tonight. He line been in communi cation with Senator Sherman during the writing of the senator's book and is im pressed with the couservativo reference to the national conventions at which Sonator Sherman was defeated. Mr. liateman was the manager of Senator Sherman's interests for a year or more prior to the convention of 1880. It is ev ident from his reasons for not suomit ling to a formal interview tnat he has ev idence of General Garfield's course prior to the assembling of the convention of 188U, which shows that the general was then active ill his own interests instead o' thoje of Snerinan, to whom he was pledred personally as well as by the in- Siruct'ons of the Republican convention. It is stated that letters are still In exist ence in whioh General Garfield, before going to the convention, wrote earnestly to those wtio were working for his nomi ntion. In one letter General Garfield asked a distinguished Republican of Pennsyl vania whether the latter thought it would hurt the former's prospects for General Garfield to go to the Chicago convention at the head of the Shetman forces. The party advised him to go to the convention.' present Senator Sher man's name and fight the Conkling plan for thenomination of General Grant. Th« delegates at large from Ohio in 1880 were Geneial Garfield, Governor Foster, ex-Governor Dannison and Mr. Bate man. There were many reports at the time about the "big four" not pulling to gether, that Garfield was a candidate for the nomination himself; that Foster was a candidate for vice-president on the ticke with Blame anil that ex-Governor Dennison, who had been In Lincoln's cabinet, was a candidate for vice-presi dent on the ticket with Grant, and that Ml. Bateman was the only one who was sincerely working for Sherman without regard to himself. Mr. Bateman said that ex.Governor Dennison was called on repeatedly at the Chicago convention in 1880, oefore the balloting commenced, hy the Grant men and offered the second placo on the ticket. Governor Dennison declined, but also stated most emphati cally that he would nut accept the nomi nation and could not in honor do so, as he was then pledged to Senator Sherman as the only Ohio candidate before the con vention, Garfield and Foster did not at tend the meetings and conferences of Dennison and Bateman with the other Ohio delegates, and there was at the time no secret among the other delegates as to the attitune of these two delegates at large. The only tning that is brought out now hy he publication of Sherman's book is the reference to letters tnat Gar field wrote to certain friends in his own interest before leaving for the Chicago convention in 1880. It is generally be lieved that Mr. Bateman has an accumu lation of evidence on the defeat of Sher man.

SAN FRANCISCO, Oot. 19.-Th« twelfth week of what Is, in many re spects, the most remarkable murder trial in the history of the far west.'will begin Monday morning. If no unforeseen «ii cuinstances intervene the trial will pro ceed without further interruption to ita conclusion. Attorney Deuprey has so far recoveed as to make certain his attendance in court Monday, thougti it is more than probable that he will shift the burden of the examination of witnesses to the shoulders of his associate, AttorneyJDick iuson, so that tie may oetter husband bis physical and mental powers for the final plea to the jury on behalf of Durrant. The week just closed has proved a boon to counsel for both sides. The long strain had tsxed their endurance to the utmost. The effect ol the week of relaxation will no doubt bo apparent when the business of taking testimony is again resumea. Both Bides have been asked as to the time required to finish the case and from the most careful estimates it now seems certain that a fortnight will elapse Defore the jury is asked to consider the evidence and render a verdict. Durrant's attorneys are still figuring on the possibility of the Rev. J. George Gib son being implicated in the murder of Blanche Lamont. They make no direct accusations against trio minister, nor oo they connect his name with the church crime. They merely say his handwritinc j is strikingly similar to "that on the paper I wrapper which enclosed Blanche La ! mont's rings. Tne defense intends to I make the most of the alleged similarity lof Dr. Gibson's writing and that on the [ paper. They will put no handwriting ex ' perts on the stand to swear that Dr. Gib | son's haiulwr'.ltng is identical with that on the paner sent to Mrs. Noble, but the significance of the similarity will be en larged upon in vlie arguments for the de fense.
