cause the Prince of Wales to order a
new cutter for next season, and if the
new Meteor, being built for Emperor

Imperial nephew will accomplish one

It has been definitely arranged that

and crown princess of Denmark, will
take place In the chapel royal at' St.
James palace on July 7. The Archbishop

as the distance between the two places

everything possible will be done to give

There has been an unusually strong
turning out of the British volunteers
for the Easter manoeuvers this year.
In fact at no time since the formation
of this addition to the defenses of Great
Britain against a foreign foe has there
been such a martial spirit displayed in
England. There is no doubt that this
large muster of volunteer soldiery Is
one of the results of the recent war
scare, but it is also partly attributed to
the fact that the popular commander
in-chief of the forces. Lord Wolseley,
regards their efforts In a much more
serious light than his predecessor, the
Luke of Cambridge. Lord Wolseley
intends to greatly Improve their arms
and equipments, the Improved Martini-
Henrys now being discarded by the
regulars, will be placed in the hands of
the volunteers, and the latter in course
of time will be armed with the new Lee-
Melford rapid Arc magazine rifle. Bet
ter quarters in many cases will also be
assigned to the volunteers, their work
at the targets will be greatly encour
aged, and in short Lord Wolseley will
do all in his power to encourage the
volunteers In their outings.

place on maundy Thursday in West
minster Abbey. The number of recip
ients is governed by the queen's age;
thus last year seventy-six men and
seventy-six women received the royal
alms. This year seventy-seven men
and seventy-seven women joined in the
procession which was formed about 1
oclock and passed into the choir. Each
of the old men and women received two
neatly made bags, the first of white
material containing £1 in gold and
representing part of the maundy, and
one £10, the allowance, instead of pro
visions which were formerly given in
kind. The recipients of the royal
maundy were afterwards handed a red
purse holding as many pence as the
queen is years of age and given in sil
ver pennies, two-pence, three-pence
and four-pence. Each man also re
ceives £25. in lieu of an allowance of
clothing, and each woman was also
presented with £15 instead of an al
lowance of clothing.

Associated Press Special Wire
BERLIN, April 4.—Copyrighted, 1896,
by the Associated Press—Since Emper
or ■William's departure for Italy and
Prince Hohenlohe's Journey to Baden,
political excitement has rapidly sub-
Bided and the press of all parties dis
cusses events in England, France and
Italy dispassionately and impartially
in the absence of any official inspira
tion. Nevertheless, the emperor keeps
a firm hand on the government tiller.
At Genoa, Naples and Palermo he had
on board the imperial yacht direct tele
graphic communication with the Berlin
foreign office and kept the wires busy
sending hundreds of dispatches and in
structions to civil and army officers.
The minister for foreign affairs. Baron
Marschal yon Bieberstein, sent the em
peror detailed accounts of the French
crisis, the Egyptian and Matabele trou
bles, the arrival in this city of Mr. Ed
win F. Uhl, the newly appointed United
States ambassador to Germany and of
the latter's brief Interview with Prince
Hohenlohe and himself as minister of
foreign affairs. In regard to the resig
nation of M. Berthelot, the French min
ister for foreign affairs, his majesty's
orders were to avoid everything calcu
lated to excite French public opinion
against Germany.
The Matabele rising is regarded as a
dangerous development, but it has not
stirred the German press, in spite of the
very prevalent belief that the revolt is
not unwelcome to those who are desir
ous of seeing the British forces in South
Africa reinforced.
The Hamburger Correspondenz pub
lishes a letter from a writer who is evi
dntly behind the scenes, in whlchit is
decalred that the mission of Dr. W. J.
Leyds, the secretary of state for the
Transvaal, so far as it concerned enlist
ing Germany's active support of that
republic, has failed, and that Germany
will do nothing as she does not desire to
assume a protectorate over the Trans
vaal. As the North German Gazette
has reproduced this statement, It may
be regarded as official.
This year's army manoeuvres have
been fixed to take place from September
11, between Bautzen and Goerlitz, the
Fifth, Sixth and Twelfth army corps
to be engaged. The special features of
the manoeuvres will be the general use
made of bicycle and tricycle. Even the
cavalry wll have bicycle corps for the
carriage of dispatches and for obtaining
special information. For the first time
some of Hiram Maxim's tricycles will
receive a practical trial. Each machine
is provided with two quick-firing guns
and a thousand rounds of ammunition.
A number of high court personages.
Including Emperor William's brother
in-law. Duke Ernest Gunther of Schles
wlg-Holsteln, Baron yon Schroeder,
Prince Altenburg, Prince Aribertof An
halt and others have subscribed the
sum of 360,000 marks, it is said, in an
effort to prevent the Ollendorf publish
ing bouse of Paris from publishing the
sensational pamphlet entitled A Reve
lation from Above, written by Dr. Fritz
Friedman, the lawyer who absconded
from this city leaving debts to the
amount of 1.000,000 marks and taking
with him Nellie yon Wlldenfelz, an ac
tress. Dr. Friedman was counsel for
the court chamberlain. Yon Kotz, who
was at one time believed to be the au
thor of a Beries of anonymous communi
cations sent, during a period of years,
to various high personages. The inside
history of this scandal, said to have
been revealed In the pamphlets and
other startling affairs connected with
court circles are believed to have been
described. The negotiations are under
stood to be still pending.
Dr. Peters, the former Imperial com
missioner In Africa, states that what
ever the decision of the inquiry into his
conduct he will leave the government
service. It appears that he has been of
fered and will accept a post at the head
of a select force In Somaliland in behalf
of a New York and Boston syndicate
and at a salary of $20,000 per annum.
A recent decision of the supreme
court of Leipsic lays down that all per
sons witnessing an offensive lese roa-
Jeste and falling to protest against it or
neglecting to inform the authorities
will be punished as accomplices. In
several of such rases already persons
have been fined.
Mr. Uhl, the United States ambassa
dor, denies having had an interview on
the emigrant question on leaving New
York. The alleged interview was re
printed extensively here and is em
barrassing his position from the start.
He has leased fine quarters at No. 8
Thlrgartenstrasse and will make no
change in the personnel of the embassy
for the present.
"WITH THE CUB
Schaefer Beats Ives and Thus Secures a
Tie
Nkw York, April 4.—The last game of
the New York series of the international
billiard tournament was played at the Gar
den concert hall tonight. The contestants
were Frank C. Ives and Jake Schaefer.
The second meeting of these well-known
experts at the new eighteen-lnch game at
tracted even a larger crowd of spectators
than that which witnessed their first game
last Wednesday night. Out of the live
games last week Ives won three and
Schaefer two, while Uarnier lost four.
There was just a possibility that the Amer
icans would tie tonight, but there were
very few who thought Schaefer would beat
Ives and secure a tie. Ives, on his wonder
ful form during the week, having made
1800 points in forty-four innings, was a
decided favorite. Alfred D'Oro.the world's
champion pool expert, was the referee.
Ives gathered in thirty-three in the thir
teenth inning, thus leaving Jake 165 points
behind. The Chicago man then began a
magnificent run. He soon got perfect con
trol of the ivories and when he had gath
ered 100 the cheers which greeted him
were deafening. At 150 Ihe applause was
renewed. With his 1 Csth shot he tied the
score and did not quit until he bad gath
ered in 186 points, missing a three cushion
carom. This was indeed a lucky thirteenth
for Schaefer and he received an ovation.
The score then stood: Ives 267, Schaefer
278. Neither man scored in the following
inning.
Ives soon reduced this slight lead which
Schaefer held and ran up a fine bunch of
83. Schaefer then made another wonder
ful run, adding 159 to bis string. In the
last inning Schaefer required just 47
points to finish the game and he got them
in an unfinished run, beating Ives by 66.
This makes a tie between Ives and
Schaefer, which will be played olf in Chi
cago next month. Tbe second series will
open in Boston on April 13th.
Summary: Ives—4B, 0, 11. 139,34,1.

WALLER'S CASE
Tha Ex* Consul Tells ■ Story ol dross 111-
Um|<
London. April 4.—Mr. John L. Waller,
formerly United States consul at Tama
tave, Madagascar, arrived in this city a
short time ago, after his release from the
French prison, in which he had been con
fined under the sentence of twenty years'
imprisonment imposed upon him by a
court-martial for having corresponded
with the Hovas. He has been living in re
tirement since his arrival and upon the ad
vice of ills agents, who are formulating a
claim against the French government, lias
not received any representatives of the
English press. However, Mr. Waller, who
sailed for New York today, made the fol
lowing statement to the Associated Press.
It is the first time he has told his story to
a reporter:
"You will remember that Tamatave was
bombarded by the French in December,
1893", be began, "I was then living at
Tamatave. Shortly after the bombard
ment I wrote to ray wife, who was living
up the country- In my letter I merely de
scribed the event, referred to the sanitary
condition of the town and the number of
French soldiers there, but I did also de
scribe some of the barbarities I witnessed,
particularly the ravishing of the Hova
women by French soldiers.
"On Maroh 3, 1895,1 was arrested at
Tamatave. I asked for witnesses and to
know what the charges against me were. I
was told they were two in number. First,
for violation of an order of January 18,
1893, regarding sending any letters
except through the French post. Second,
violation of one of the articles of the
French military code by corresponding
with the enemy regarding French opera
tions at Tamatave.
"I was at first refused counsel,but after
ward obtained the services of M. La Gray.
He had only forty-eight hours in which to
look into my case. The trial was held on
March 20,1895, and only lasted one hour.
My lawyer frequently told tbe court that
such charges as were adduced would be
laughed at in a civil court trial. However,
I was condemned to twenty years' solitary
confinement.
"On the 23d of March I was placed on a
steamer hound for Marseilles. I was told
that I would be given a stateroom for the
voyage. However, when I reached the
boat I was conducted to the hold and
made to sit down on a platform which Is
just underneath tbe hatchway for lower
ing freight. My guard, who was a French
soldier, simply in reply to my question
regarding a room, said: 'You sit
there,' A few moments afterward a
huge iron bar was brought and placed
on the door in front of me. To this
my ankles were chained. I was unable
then to change my position, even enough
to lie on my side. The rabble of Tamatave
had followed me from the jail to the
steamer. They came on board and, stand
ing on the deck, spat upon me. 1 was
soon covered completely with their saliva.
1 appealed to my guard and to several of 1 he
French soldiers, but they only laughed at
me. As night came on it began to rain, and
I lay powerless to move, with the tropical
rain beating down upon me. Being wet
in that climate is always followed by
fever, unless one's clothes are immediately
changed. In the morning I was trembling
with a chill. At 8 oclock some breakfast
was brought me. It consisted of soup
with rice and curry in it and a piece of
thread. I could not eat and begged for a
cup ot tea. One of the soldiers drew his
sabre and exclaimed: 'Eat that.'
"I was only released of my chains twice
a day, ten minutes in the morning and ten
in the afternoon. I was given but two
meals a day. All my effects had been
taken from me and I was illy provided with
clothing.
"I had but one and a half fr.vncs with
me. After leaving Zanzibar I gave this tc
a soldier and told him to buy me some oi*
anges. He took the money and when 1 saw
him next day he said he had lost it.
"A few trench officers came on board at
Zanzibar. One of them remonstrated with
my guard and I was released from my
chains. Another officer, seeing me re
leased, said: 'You are an enemy of i ranee.
When you are asleep I will cut your throat
and throw you overboard.' I had
been given a room and my guard slept in
it next to me. That night I was aroused
by a noise in my room and saw this officer
standing at the foot of my bed. I got up,
dressed and started to go on deck. He
followed me and struck me on the back of
the head as I was ascending the stairway,
knocking me down. I gut up, and, fearful
for my life, struck him in tho face, cutting
it open. I applied to the officers of the
ship for protection. I was assured by them
and by the French officers who had be
friended me that nothing would be done to
me for my action in defending myself.
After this episode the Frenchman kept
away from me. < loing through the Suez
canal I was again chained, and again as we
approached Marseilles.
"At Marseilles I was conducted to a
dirty, filthy prison. I only remained there
a few days and then, handcuffed to two
other prisoners, was taken to the military
prison at Claravaux. Here tbe food was
so bad I could not retain it on my stomach.
1 appealed to the governor of the prison
and he sent the doctor to examine me.
"From Claravaux I waa transferred lo
the prison at Nimes. On February 20,
1896, a prison official arrived and told me
that my pardon had been received. With
it came a message trom Mr. Eustis, in
Paris, directing rce to draw on him for
money.
"I wish particularly to state that in mak
ing application for my pardon, I made no
agreement whatever to waive my claims
for damages against the trench govern
ment."

CHAUNCEY'S COMPLIMENTS
THE UNION LEAGUE CLUB FEASTS AND
TALKS POLITICS
The Great After Dlnasr Orator Tells ol Cali
fornia's Richness snd Her Need ol Pro
tection—A mid and Gentle Boom tor Mr-
Morton
Associated Press Snocial wire.
San Francisco, April 4.—After a week
of feasting and entertainment in Califor
nia, Chauncy M. Depew was tendered a
farewell banquet to-night by Ihe Union
League club in the maple room of the
Palace hotel. Two hundred guests were
present, comprising the most prominent
citizens in social and political life In the
city. The Union League club is a Repub
lican organization, but party lines were
laid aside to-night and the most promi
nent men of all parties united to do honor
to California's distinguished guest.
Mr. Depew was introduced by President
Stone of the Union League club. Mr.
Depew began his remarks by a reference
to the wonderful of California
and her latent possibilities. He said that
in all his travels, extending all over the
world, be never had seen such wonderful
valleys and vast tracts of fruitful country.
Drifting to politics, lie said it was inexplic
able how any one with souse enough to be
at large should not. recognize the great
benetit that protection would be to a state
like California. With protection, be said
California would one day equal France in
wealth, which has no larger area than this
state, although it has a population of 115-,
000,000 as against 1.500,000 in Califor
nia.
Referring lo the administration of the
government by the Democratic party, Mr.
Depew said that the history of the world
had shown that there were cycles when
people eveu of the extraordinary business
ability of the Americans made fools of
themselves. The first notable instance
was during President Buchanan's adminis
tration, when during a period of profound
peace it became necessary to issue bonds
to defray ordinary expenses of that gov
ernment. The next instance, he said, was
during the present administration, when
more bonds had to be sold for the same
purpose. He said the country would
never reach the highest possible
degree of prosperity white the
government is in such hands. The hope
of prosperity, he said rested in protection
to American labor and also in reciprocity,
that great principle which Blame did so
much to ioater during the declining years
of his career.
Turning to the money question Mr. De
pew srid he believed the country should
adhere to a sound tinancial system. The
government, he said had attained such
proportions that it is a citizen of the world
and in maintaining its commercial rela
tions with others it should have money that
would be accepted anywhere in the world.
He spoke of visiting the battleship Oregon,
now building at the Union iron works in
this city, and asked if the people of this
country would have the mission of the
splendid vessel spoiled by asking it to de
fend tbe honor of a country like China or
Mexico, whose financial system is based
on silver. No nation, lie said, had ever
been able to maintain the value of that
money, and until silver shall be recognized
by other great nations of the world, be said
it was idle for this country to talk of ad
mitting it to free coinage.
With regard to the candidates for the
presidency, Mr. Depew said he was per
sonally in favor of Morton and wished
California would endorse the candidacy of
the great New Yorker when the time
should come for action. The statement
was greeted with cheers, but when among
the names of other candidates McKinley's
name was mentioned, the greatest con
fussion followed. Men stood up in their
chairs and cheered wildly, and it was sev
eral minutes before the speaker could pro
ceed.
In closing, Mr. Depew introduced as the
next speaker, General Barnes, whom he
said he had known for forty years since
they were botli classmates at Yale. Barnes
began by eulogizing Depew, who, he said,
in his college days gave promise of his
future greatness. After touching on some
of the leading political topics, General
Barnes referred to the silver question. He
said the greatest danger of Republican de
feat at the next election lay in the fact
that many misguided Republicans might
unite in the formation of a silver
party. The speaker deplored the
tendency of some modern statesmen to ■
hold a silver dollar so close to their eyes
that it obscured their vision of the re
mainder of the country. Personally he
said he was in favor of a greater use of
silver, but he did not believe It patriotic
for congressmen to attech free silver
riders to every bill introduced in either
house and defeat the measure if it could
not be passed iv its original form. States
men should have broader views and seek
to settle what is in itself a simple question
by other means.
< ieneral Barnes was followed by Irving
M. Scott, who was introduced as the
"builder of warships equal to any that sail
the sea."
The speech making continued until a
late hour.

SPRAINS AND BRUISES
The Ocesn Hunt club Has a Disastrous Meet-
Ing
New York, April 4.—The World tomor
row morning will publish an account it
yesterday's disasters on the field of the
Ocean Hunt club at Greenville. George
Gould had a narrow escape from death.
Dr. C. C. Lindley, master of the hunt, suf
fered a dislocated shoulder, and Willie
Dwyer is nursing a badly stirained arm.
Willie Dwyer came to grief at a hurdle
early in the chase. At the end of the sec
ond two miles, when Mr. Gould and Dr.
Lindley were far ahead, a. still fence
loomed up before them. Dr. Lindley took
it first. His horse, Shamrock, stumbled on
the rail, and, turning a complete somer
sault, came down in a heap on his bock
and lay there. Mr. Gould, who was four
lengths behind, steadied Turk and tried
what is known as the double jump, but
even as Turk rose at the obstacle the
horse's feet slipped. Mr. Gould fell out of
the saddle, headforemost, over the horse's
head. He saw the body of the horse fall
ing on him and struggled blindly out of
reach as Turk struck the ground, half
a foot clear of him, Br. Lindley, al
though injured, struggled to his feet
and ran to Mr, Gould's assistance, where
he lay stunned and motionless. Then
one by one the stragglers came up. Dr.
Lindley's shoulder, which was dislocated,
was wrenched into place. Meantime Mr.
Gould was slowly coming back to con
sciousness. It was found that his hip was
sprained. Tbe injured men were taken to
Lakewood as soon as a carriage could be
procured. Mr. Gould came to this city to
night. His secretary said he was suffering
a sprain and shock, but expected to be
about in a few days.
