The German Ruler's Reception Some
what Marred by a Salute Fired
by Austrian Anarchists
Associated Press Special Wire.
BUDA-PESTH, Sept. 21.—At the atate
banquet given today in honor of Em
peror William of Germany, Emperor
Erancis Joseph, In proposing his majes
ty's health, refered to him as "My faith
ful friend, ally and unwearying fellow
laborer ln the great work of peace, to
Which we ever devote our best powers."
In conclusion the Austrian emperor
remarked: "Convinced that a similarity
Of sentiment guides us in. this exalted
mission, I empty my glass."
Emperor William, in reply, remarked:
"It was with feelings of the most pro
found gratitude that I listened to your
majesty's .cordial greeting. Thanks to
your majesty's Invitation, I have been
able to visit this beautiful city, whose
splendid reception has literally over
whelmed me.
"Thanks to the wisdom of your majes
ty, our alliance, concluded in the past by
our people, stands Arm and indissoluble.
It bas secured peace to Europe for a long
time and will do so still longer.
"In giving expression to these senti
ments we wish one and all to combine
all we think, feel and desire for your
majesty In the cry which every Hunga
rian re-echoes to his last breath, 'Eljen
a kiraly.' "
The speech of Emperor William caused
tremendous enthusiasm, especially when
he allu?ed to Count Zerlny's defense of
the fort of Szimgeth in 1866, when, he
blew up the citadel rather than capitu
late to the Turks.
LONE ON. Sept. 21.—A dispatch to the
Daily Vail from Vienna says:
It ls reported that, as Emperor Wil
liam and Emperor Francis Joseph were
leaving the station at Buda-Pesth a
sharp detonation was heard, which was
followed by a thick cloud of dust and
smoke. The crowd took fright, broke
through the military cordon and
swarmed aroumdi the Imperial carriages.
Emperor Francis Joseph was greatly
agitated and shouted to the police to
keep the people back. Some arrests are
reported, but owing to the silence main
tained by the officials, it is difficult to
ascertain details of the affair. The
newspaper Welrner Journal was con
fiscated for publishing telegrams as to
the occurrence.
The enthusiasm of the people visibly
pleased the monarchs, and Emperor
William showed signs of the greatest
Emperor Francis Joseph met the Ger
man Emperor at the door of the salon
carriage, and sfter cordial greetings had
been exchanged, the two Emperors
passed in front of the guard of honor.
Emperor William greeted the Austrian
Archdukes when this ceremony was con
cluded and also shook hands with the
state dignitaries. Then the monarchs
were heartily cheered by the crowd, en
tered a court equipage and drove to the
castle, the Archdukes and Ministers fol

teresting decision has been rendered by
Judge Coffey in settling up the estate
of Jennie Parsons, wife of Captain Par
eons of the steamer Pacific, which was
lost at sea ln November, 1875. The mat
ter came into court through the filing
of a will said to have been found in a
bottle picked up at sea. The heirs of
Captain Parsons claimed the estate on
the ground, ln law, that when a husband
and wife die together in a disaster of any
kind the husband is presumed to be the
survivor. It was shown that at the time
of the wreck Mrs. Parsons was placed ln
a lifeboat, while her husband remained
on the deck of his vessel, which went
down first. This fact was stated by
Neil Handy, quartermaster of the steam
er, and the only survivor of the wreck.
The Judge accepted this evidence and
awarded the property to the heirs of
Mrs. Parsons. She was once well known
on the stage as one of the Mandevllle

In speaking of the matter Mayor Har
rison said: "I can see no objection to
this form of sport, unless it is carried
too far. If the people want it, I believe
they should be allowed to have it. There

course, I do not approve of prize-fighting

Mrs. Cohen Must Pay
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 21.—United
States Circuit Judge Morrow today ren
dered judgment for the plaintiff in the
suit of Wells, Fargo & Co. against Emil
C. Cohen. The suit was brought to re
cover $45,250 on three notes dated April
29. 1893, signed by E. H. Gould, and made
payable to Mrs. Cohen. Before they be
came due she Indorsed the notes and
transferred them to the plaintiff. Inter
est was fixed at 8 per cent.
Mrs. Cohen, in her answer, claimed
that when the notes were made prop
erty valued at $60,000 was conveyed to
E. A. Cohen as trustee and plaintitf
agreed to exhaust this security before
proceeding against her, which she says
was not done.
The court held that she was responsi
ble and gave Judgment for $61,157.87,
which sum includes interest and costs.
A Tame Fight
PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 21—Young
Grlffo, of Australia, and Joe Gans, col
ored, from Baltimore, met at the Olym
pic club at Athens tonight in a fifteen
round fight. Until the seventh round the
bout was tame, Griffo only fought when
pushed by Gans. The seventh was a
hot one, during which both Griffo and
Gans landed viciously at each other.
Matters became uninteresting again
until the twelfth round. This was also
full of ginger, and there was one mix
,up. The next three rounds were tame
and when time was called at the finish
both men were standing on their feet.

An Effort Being Made to
Partially Restore It
Ruinous Veins of Schist Are Only Too
Apparent Among the Majority
of the Marble Blocks
ATHENS. Sept 4.—(Special Corre
spondence to The Herald.) The Par
thenon is doomed. I do not mean that
it will fall tomorrow or next week, but
Its decay is as sure and certain as any
thing can be in the world. To-day the
effort to repair the famous structure
seems as puny as the mimic thunder of
the stage sounds when likened to the
tremendous sound blast of Jove. It ls
doomed, too, because the early builders
thereof, like the modern contractor of
this era's civilization, builded rather for
appearance than stability.
The outside marble blocks of the Par
! thenon are sound enough, but it is as if
some giant worm had eaten out the
! heart of the remainder and only the
i shell was left It ls. I think, the saddest,
j the most dispiriting sight that one who
Is familiar with the ancient greatness
of Greece, the fame of her temples, and
the glories of the Parthenon in the days
when It really was what it was built for,
can possibly see. The whole western
facade ls disfigured by an immense scaf
folding, built in the strongest possible
way from enormous beams that were
brought all the way from America to
serve Athens. This mighty scaffolding
subserves a twofold purpose; primarily,
it enables the architects to replace cer
tain rotten ana broken architrave blocks
with fresh blocks; but its important sec
ondary purpose is to serve as a prop to
the entire entablature, and prevent the
collapse of the bundling in case of an
The inside and interior stones of the
entablature are rotten throughout. In
many cases these rotten stones were
broken by the recent earthquakes into
many pieces, though by the veriest mi
racle these pieces still cling together.
As is well known, the epistyle consists
of three huge blocks that stand on their
narrow edges side by side and span the
Intercolumniations. Of these three
j blocks tbe outside ones alone are com
paratively sound, while the Interior and
i inside blocks are in a most ruinous con-
All of these Inside blocks are
j to be replaced by new ones that are now
lying on the ground below ready to be
hoisted into position as soon as the
mighty derrick that is to lift them on
high shall have arrived.
The thought of new epistyle blocks ln
the Parthenon is shocking to most souls,
and yet it is a choice between that and
immediate ruin The new blocks will be
colored with oil and wax in order to rob
them of their glaring whiteness and
newness. But even more sorrowful ls
the fact that, though this ruin may be
stayed for one or two centuries yet to
come, still In the end the Parthenon
must collapse unless virtually the whole
entablature be replaced by new and
sound stones.
Am I asked for the reason for this
ruinous condition of the Parthenon?
There are several reasons, several caus-
es, some of which have been in effective I
operation for many years, though all un
suspected. We have been brought up to
believe that the Parthenon was a per
fect building erected by master builders,
who employed only the best of material
In Its construction. It occasions a shock
to discover that, though this ls true In
general, yet It is true with certain limit
ing qualifications, because of which the
building is now threatened with ruin.
In point of fact, the builders of the Par
thenon employed first-class marble
only on the outside of the building, only
where the eye could see It.
In the Pentellc marble there are veins
of schist that disfigure and ruin, many a
fair block. Visitors will remember the
many unfluted drums of columns that
He here and there around the temple.
These are drums that were rejected of

in some way, often precisely be
cause if this disastrous vein of schist.
Indeed, one of the new epistyle blocks
has just been rejected by the commit
tee of architects because of its faulty
character, which was discovered only
after the block had been completely
hewn and was ready to be hoisted Into
position. No doubt that block will re
main there for centuries to come, Just
as the rejected drums of columns have
lain for these decades of centuries* Now,
of course, perfectly sound marble was
employed in columns, both because they
were completely visible and also be-1
cause they had a great weight to carry.
Sound marble was employed also ln the
outside stones of the entablature and of
the cella walls, but the inside stones of
the cella walls and the two inside stones
of the epistyle were faulty from the
start —faulty because of this vein of
As long as the building was covered T>y
a roof the faulty character of these
stones was of no importance whatever,
and, as is well known, the Parthenon
was always covered by a roof until its
final disruption by the gunpowder ex
plosion two centuries ago. The ruin,
tbat now threatens the portion left
standing on that fatal occasion began
from the moment of the explosion and
it has become more serious with each
succeeding year. The. roofless condi
tion of the building baa made It possl
| ble for the rain to penetrate into the
] schist veins of the faulty stones.
At first but slight damage was done
to these stones, but the frost of winter
and the scorching sun of summer made
the evil greater from year to year, un
til at last the scales fall from our eyes
and we discover that these stones are
rotten throughout. The horror was re-
vealed in its full extent by the earth
quake, when a number of these rotter,
blocks were shivered into many pieces.
The fact that these splintered blocks did
not fall is due to' the soundness of the
neighboring blocks on the outside. But
though the ultimate cause of the roin
ous condition of the Parthenon was the
employment in its construction of poor
marble for Interior and Inside stones,
which two centuries of exposure to rain,
frost and heat have made rotten, still
other things have conspired with these—
namely, Are and cannon balls before the
disruption and earthquakes of all pe
There can be no doubt that the Parthe
non, would hold out for many centuries
longer if it were covered by a roof. But
It is thought by most men that s roof
over the Parthenon would disfigure It
absurdly. Of course it would, but then
the roof would save the building, and
sentiment would give the front seat to
sound reasoning, which naturally would
never, never do.

BERLIN, Sept. 21— The feature of the
Berlin and Frankfurt stock exchanges
today was the weakness of American
securities, due to the report of the-
Temps, of Paris, yesterday in a dispatch
from San Sebastian, in which it waa
stated the United States had practically
sent Spain an ultimatum threatening to
interfere if the insurrection ln Cuba is
not suppressed by the end of October
LONDON, Sept. 21.—Hannls Taylor,
formerly United States Minister to
Spain, arrived here last evening and
called at the United States embassy to
day. In an Interview Mr. Taylor said:
"The grave negotiations pending be
tween the United States and Spain as
to the war ln Cuba are now entirely in
i the hand* of General Woodford, who
I has had a fruitful experience, both in
i peace and war, and would be equal to the
i occasion, whatever it may be."
Mr. Taylor was questioned with regard
to the accuracy of the statements con
tained ln a dispatch from San Sebastian
to Le Temps of Paris, purporting to give
the substance of an interview which took
place Sunday between the United States
Minister and the Minister of Foreign Af- j
fairs, at which General Woodford is said
to have insisted courteously but firmly i
upon the necessity of terminating the I
war with Cuba and to have declared that
( if It was not terminated by the end of!
| October the United States will feel justl-
I fled In taking measures to secure the ln- j
dependence of Cuba. In reply, to a ques-!
Hon the former minister said: "My Hps
are sealed until after my arrival ln |

to discuss the matter his manner tended i
to confirm the story told by the corre
spondent of the Paris Temps.
NEW YORK, Sept. 21.—The Journal

The Cuban junta has received advices
of the safe landing on different parts of
Cuba of three big expeditions between
the Ist and the 12th of the present month.
They were the most Important that had
been dispatched since last winter, and
great joy prevailed at the headquarters
of the junta when the news arrived that
they had eludied the Spanish, who were
believed at one time to have been on their i
track. !
The three ships carried a large quantity :
of dynamite and other munitions, to- ,
gether with an Immense supply of mcdl- j
cines for the army of patriots. In all, i
there were over 40 men on board, going '
either to join the Cuban army for the
first time or returning to the ranks.
There were two doctors and dentists.
Three of the most important members
of the expedition were Carlos Duble, Car
los Dunonocoae and J. L. Ahumada, for
mer officers of the Chilean army, who
had been lo New Tork for several weeks j
awaiting an opportunity to go to Cuba
to help in the fight for independence.
