BERLIN, Oct. 23.—(Copyright; 1897.)
The meeitlng between the czar andi Em
peror William at Wiesbackm on Wednes
day last was arranged by Prince Henry
of Prussia at Darmstadt the day before
it took place. Prior to that there was
no thought of the czar going to Wies
baden, showing that the meeting of the
two emperors was of a purely Informal
•nd accidental character.
The reunion of the monarchs was of
a most cordial nature. At Wtesbaden,
particularly, Emperor William was in
excellent spirits and. made the czar
laugh repeatedly by telling him funny
The school children of Wiesbaden,
noticing the excellent humor of Em
peror William an.A anxious to view the
court eights, presented themselves in
throngs before the castle, where they
ehouted in chorus, "Kaiser, give us leave
from school." His majesty was highly
amused andi caused the school authori
ties to gratify the children's wishes. This
news was received by the children with
tremendous chieers.
An article in the Neuova Autolosia,
•» influential Italian magazine pub
lished! by ex-Minister Ferraris, has
caused: a profound! sensation in. Ger
gwmry. The article is a summary of a
forthcoming book by Signor Chiala, the
Italian senator and historian. He ad
vocates the formal withdrawing of Italy
from the dreibund. at the expiration of
the present term of that compact and
the forming of a new zweibund between
Italy and Great Britain. The article
shows that in 1886 Italy was on the
point of leaving the dreibund, and In
1891 she was only prevailed upon to
continue in for the sake of preserving
universal peace. Continuing, the writer
proceeds to demonstrate that Italy's
most vital political interests are in the
Mediterranean and that only Great
Britain can aid her there. The article
contains all sorts of official documents
in support of this reasoning, the most
important being a letter of Count Rob
lan to Count de Laura, then ambassa
dor at Berlin. It is believed in Berlin
diplomatic circles that Signor Chiali's
book expresses the conviction of Italy's
statesmen and that the withdrawal of
Italy from the dreibund is a foregone
The government newspapershave pre-1
served silence on the subject, but the
Staatsberger Zeltung says: "Germany
can calmly await Italy's withdrawal,
for It is undeaiable that Germany does
not heed Italy, but the latter Is con
demned, to impotency without Ger
many's aid."
A curious veering around has occurred
relative to the sugar Interests. The
German husbandry council has now
asked the imperial chancellor, Prince
Hohenlohe, to reduce the inland sugar
tax from 20 to 15 marks per hundred
kilos, whereupon the Deutsche Tag;
Zeltung, the main Agrarian organ,
which has hitherto advocated high ex
port premiums and inland sugar taxes,
ad.vises the abolishing of the whole tax
and premiums. It says the inland con
usmption tax once removed, there would
be a much larger consumption of sugar
in Germany, where the per capita con
sumption Is now only one-third of that
of England. The paper argues that the
total sugar production of Germany
wouldi be consumed) at home, thus fur

Decides to Meet Next Year at
San Diego
OAKLAND, Cal.. Oct. 23.—The Pres
byterian synod of California r t its first
business session today, considered the
place for next year's meeting. San Di
ego, Sao Francisco and Eureka were
represented by invitation, and San Di
ego was chosen by a big majority. A
motion was made to Instruct the finance
committee to segregate the mileage and
synod expense funds, so that members
could contribute to either, as they de
aired. This engendered so much dlscus
sion that further consideration of the
motion was made a sp#?lal order of busl
nes for Monday mornfng. The question
will provoke the greatest discussion of
the year. The synod adopted the recom-
mendatlon of the committee on foreign
missions, that the contributions of the
churches be raised 20 per cent over those
of last year, and In no case to be less
than $1 per $100. Reports were also
received from the secretaries of the Wo
men's Occidental Board of Foreign Mis
sions, State Secretary- Mrs. I, M. CondJt,
Mrs. L. A. Kelly, corresponlng secretary,
and Mrs. R. F. Coyle, Christian Endeav
or secretary, reported from their re
spective departments. The synod' ap
proved the plan for the establishment
of Westminster halls at Berkeley and
Stanford, where students may reside
during their university course. The ju
dicial committee reported against ac
cepting the appeal of Mrs. W. Mabb of
Los Angeles from the decision of the
presbytery, on the ground that it was
not properly before the synod. The re
port was adopted without discussion.

Days to Talk
SAN JOSE, Oct. 23.—A1l of the evi
dence for and against Dan Dutcher,
charged with the murder of George W.
Schofleld, is now In and the arguments
before the jury will begin Monday. There
was but little testimony offered in rebut
tal, and that was presented by the pros-
the defer.ee being satisfied with
its case.
When court convened/ today, V. A.
Scheller was given permission to reopen
his case for the purpose of asking Dutch
er a few additional questions. Dutcher
then testified that just before the fatal
shot was flredihe told Mrs. Schofleld, and
she replied: "No; you run, for he said he
i was going to kill you on sight."

gay c testimony as to Dutcher's confes
sion, showing that it differed in many
details from the story told by the pris
oner In court. The words with which
Dutcher began his confession were: "I
killed Schofieldi, and I expect to go to San
Quentin for ten years."
Clark Johnson of Fresno, a son-in-law
of Schofieldi, was the last witness put on
the stand to tell of the property troubles
of the Schoflelds, but all questions asked
him were ruled out by the court.
It Is expected that the arguments In
the case will be long drawn out, but th.;
case will probably reach the jury by
next Wednesday. The public does not
expect a conviction, unless it be for man -
slaughter, and the majority of the peo

Can Prove That Her Name
Is Elliott
A Romance of the Drjys of Gold in
California and in Foreign
Associated Press Special Wire.
Francisco girl raised in moderate cir
cumstances has been transformed into
an heiress of one of the greatest fortunes
that ever fell to the lot of a Californlan.
Grace Elliott, a young lady of 21 years,
living with her adopted parents on
O'Farrell street has been informed that
she is the rightful owner of property said
to be valued at $25,000,000. The colossal
fortune awaits her in England. With
out contest, simply by proving her ident
ity, which can easily be done, the millions
will be transferred to her.
A New York dispatch published here
last Monday stated that Vice-President
Hobart and Governor Griggs of New
Jersey were endeavoring to obtain from
the English courts a settlement of the
estate of Imblay Clarke.a mining oper
ator who had died 20 years before. There
were two claimants to the estate, Nan
Clarke Squire of Jersey City and Grace
Clarke of New Brunswiek, both nlecesof
the deceaseci millionaire.
The efforts of Hobart will probably re
sult successfully, but the $25,000,000 will
not go to the Eastern nieces, as Grace
Elliott of this city is Grace Clarke, the
daughter of the dead multi-millionaire.
In 1576, Imblay Clarke, a we*thy mine
owner of Peru and Australia arrived in
this city with hie wife. A daughter was
born to Mrs. Clarke. In delica-te health
before the event, the mother was unable
to survive and a short time after died,
leaving the father and the daughter, only
a few days old, in a strange country and
without friends. Clarke was broken
hearted over the death of his> wife and
determined to take her body back to her
native land. Aware of the folly of at
tempting to take the child with him, he
set about looking for a place where she
might be provided for until he could
return, consigning the remains of his
wife to the earth of Australia.
To a Mrs. Griswold he entrusted his
little daughter, announcing that he
would return to California and would
then take charge of the child.
Before his departure Clarke christened
his child "Grace."
Months passed but Clarke did not re
turn as he had promised. The officials of
Australia were communicated with and
from them was learned the reason for
Clarke's failure to keep his promise. He
was. dead.
Borne down by the grief of his loss
he had survived his wife only a few
weeks and soon after he had placed foot
on Australian coil he passed.
Mrs. Griswold inserted an advertise
ment in a local paper stating that a girl
of good parentage could be adopted Into
a respectable family. Among the many
that read the advertisement ..as the
wife of W. R. Elliott. Application was
made and the legaj matters attending
the transaction were gone through with,
the daughter of the millionaire thus be-
coming the child of the Elliotts. Years
passed by and none of the family sus
pected the riches that had lain for years
unclaimed, until the newspapers pub
lished last Monday when It became
known that Grace was the true heir.
There is nothing that would admit of a
contest, declare her lawyers, so con
clusive ls the evidence and all that ls
now to be done is to prove to the satis
faction of the British government that
Grace. Elliott is Grace Clarke.

Save Your Stomach
The habit of drugging is sogeneial, it has been so much of a custom during the past generation that some people
would not think of attempting to cure disease by any other means than by pouring something down the throat. They keep
on drugging because custom forms a habit, and they take their regular dose before going to bed just the same as if the drug
was one of the essentials to living.
It is not. It is simply a vicious habit. Nature is being laughed at in contempt. All the laws of health are scorned.
The stomach is being ruined. The drug fiend always fills an early grave. He destroys the only foundation to what little
vitality he has left—his stomach.
When you swallow a drug, think of this: Disease is the result of inability of some organ of your body to do the
work nature intended it to do. Inability means impotency, weakness, lack of strength. What is strength? Not in drugs I
It is vitality, animal magnetism—ELECTRICITY.
