Of Mr. George's son will be quickly re
The Times, after alluding to "the rarity
of such a dramatic death," says: "Mr.
George's Influence was largely personal,
and if he had been elected, he would
proDably have disappointed his devotees
when he was sincere, but he would have
no opportunity of carrying into effect his
fiscal and social theories; while he
would have been unable, through inex
perience, to resist the steady pressure
of the workers and 'bosses.' His death
gives a great advantage to Tammany
Hall, which would In any case probably
be victorious. Scrupulously honest I
as we believe Henry George to have I
been, he might have kept his own hands
clean in such a position, but he could
not have reformed the system, and he
might have probably engrafted upon it
some evils. The American people hav
ing strong, practical instincts, Mr.
George's philosophy met with a larger
measure of support In England than in
the United States."
The afternoon papers publish today
further sympathetic comment on the
death of Henry George, similar to the
references made by the morning papers
to the death of the philosopher and po- :
litical economist. Columns of stories
about the dead man and incidents of his j
career are printed by the press.
NEW YORK. Oct. 30.—Hamlin Oar
land, chairman of the Funeral Commit
tee, said today that the body of Henri-
George will be taken to Grand Central
Palace some time this evening. The
service will be non-sectarian. The body
will probably be placed on a bier so that
all who wish may look upon the face of
the deceased during or after the services.
Afterward there will be a procession of
laboring men down Broadway and over
the bridge to Brooklyn. The body will
remain at the home of the deceased at
Fort Hamilton until Monday, when it
will be interred in Greenwood cemetery.
Fifty thousand workingmen, members
of unions, will participate in the march
of honor Sunday night. The Central
Labor union of this city, with its sixty
affiliated bodies, district asemblies 49
and 2:!.",. Knights of Labor, 30.000 strong,
and district asembly 7.1. Knights of La
bor (railroad employes) and the Brook
lyn Central Labor union, 20,000 strong,
will make up that tremendous body.
The eulogists at the funeral services
will be Rev. Dr. McGlynn, Rev. Dr.
Heber Newton, Rev. Dr. Rainsford, Rev.
Dr. Lyman Abbott and Bishop Henry C.
Potter. Dr. Heber Newton will be the j
officiating clergyman in the services, j
He was Mr. George's pastor.
The plaster cast of the dead single
taxer's face, made last night under the
direction of Richard George, has been

Reports of Injunction in the Union
Pacific Case
OMAHA, Neb., Oct. 30.—For a time
today there was great excitement in
railroad circles in this city over the re
port that an injunction had been asked
preventing the sale of the Union Pacific
road under foreclosure next Monday.
The report first came through a dispatch
from Dow, Jones & Co. of New York,
but in a short time the story came in
from other points and the officials of
the Union Pacific and other interested
parties began to believe that where
there was so much smoke there must be
some fire. It was impossible to substan
tiate the story, however, and it is not
thought here that there is anything in it.
ST. PAUL, Minn., Oct. 30.—The United
States circuit court today heard three
motions for foreclosure decrees in suits
to foreclose mortgages in the central
branch of the Union Pacific, the Atchi
son, Colorado and Pacific and the Atchi
son, Jewel County and Western roads,
three branches of the Union Pacific.
Judge Sanborn heard the arguments
and referred the case to W. D. Cornish,
master in chancery, to report the facts
and the form of decree by December 6th.
It should be understood that these cases
have no reference to the sale of the main
line of the Union Pacific.
A Starving Miner Saved by Friendly
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 30.—Robert E.
Leibert of this city, who was reported
to have been frozen to death on the Chil

here for the gold fields early last July
and after spending a few weeks at Chil
kat, Dyea and Skaguay trading and
packing, crossed the pass in quest of
treasure. He experienced little diiliculty
getting over, but found a condition of
famine on the other side. After a short
stay he started back with a man named
Graves who lived in Oakland.
They lost their way in a blizzard on
the summit of Chilcoot pass and Graves
has not been seen since. Leibert was

Until He Wonders at His
Various Teutonic Industries Hit by
the Dingley Tariff, but Sugar
Gets It Hardest
Associated Press Special Wire.
BERLIN, Oct. SO—(Copyright, 1597.)
The new German ambassador to the
United States, Dr. yon Helleben, re
cently Prussian minister to Wurtem
burg, and formerly (1592-93) German
minister to the United States, left Ber
lin on Wednesday last to spend a fort
night on his family estate previous to
his departure for America, on Novem
ber 9th. He has received several very
unusual marks of distinction and confi
dence from the emperor during the week,
and the king of Wurtemburg has con
ferred his highest decoration upon him,
the grand cross of the order of the crown.
Before Dr. yon Helleben left the city,
he was interviewed by the correspondent
of the Associated Press, as his mission
Is of special importance, in view of sev
eral questions in which the two coun
tries are involved, notably the tariff
and the Samoan question. In the course
of this conversation the newly appointed
ambassador said: "I wonder I have not
got diabetes. I have been dosed with
sugar in Berlin. I mean, of course, the
remonstrance of our sugar men against
the unfavorable sugar imports provi
sion of the Dingley tariff, and explana
tions and technical discussions on that
topic that I have had to listen to at the
various ministries. The sugar quesUon,
I am sure, is what interests us most
vitally and strikes us the hardest in the
new tariff, and against that breach of
our existing treaty with the United
States vigorous protests will, of course,
be renewed. As yet it is too early to tell
exactly in which branches of industry
the Dingley tariff most affects German
exports. Another three months must
elapse before that can be determined,
but I am quite certain that many of its
provisions hit us hard. These questions
I consider, and so does my government,
as being of the first importance. The
Samoan and other questions are com
paratively secondary. It is fortunate
that the United States Is represented by
so able and well-meaning a man as Mr.
White. In going to America I go to
a field I know by previous experience,
with the best intentions, and by that I
mean the intentions of my government
as well."
As to what his instructions were re
garding the conclu ~»n of reciprocity
treaties with the United States, Dr. yon
Helleben would not give a direct an
swer, but he intimated that in a general
way he was Instructed to open negotia
tions. He said he was personally ac
quainted with both John A. Kasson, the
new special comimssioner on reciprocity
treaties, apolnted by President MeKin
ley, and Mr. Kasson's secretary, Chip
man Coleman, for many years secretary
of the United States legation in Berlin.

An Illinois Robber Kills His Partner
by Mistake
AURORA, 111., Oct. 30.—Peter Braun
and his brother Harry conduct a small
grocery on the outskirts of Aurora. The
store is in the same yard as their dwell
ing. Between the two buildings stands
a lilac bush. At 10 oclock last night the
Eraun brothers closed their store and
started for the house. As they passed
the lilac bush two masked men confront
ed them with drawn revolvers. Peter,
the older brother, attacked one robber
and was greeted with four pistol shots.
Every bullet hit, and the grocer fell dead
almost upon his own doorstep. Harry
Braun lied from the robbers. The man
who did the shooting saw a figure In the
darkness and gave it n shot, which pene
trated the brain of the human target.
But the robber had made a mistake, for
the second man proved to be his fellow
highwayman. The murderer went to the
home of Jacob Rink, half a mile distant,
where he stole a horse and wagon. The
rig was found at Batavia, seven miles
away, with two revolvers on the seat
No further trace of the murderer re

The Customs Revenue of the Republic
Farmed Out for a Century
to Come
WASHINGTON, Oct. 30.—According
to a message just received at the depart
ment of state from Consul Powell, dated
at Port Au Prince, October 11th, an Eng
lish syndicate has secured charge of the
customs revenue of the republic of Santo
Domingo for a period of 100 years, by
making a loan of $7,500,000 to the local
According to the terms of the loan, the
syndicate takes charge of the custom
houses of the republic, receives and col
lects all duties on imports and exports
and pays over to the government a cer
tain percentage of the revenue thus de
rived for the current expense of the
government. This syndicate agrees to
pay all the outstanding obligations of
the government, and to pay the amount
of the debt owed to the American syndi
cate that at present holds control of the
customs revenues. They are also given
control of the railroad running to Puerto
Plata, and authority to build such other
railroads as they may desire. The gov
ernment conceded to them the right to
make improvemnts as the exigency of
the case may warrant. It is also stipu
lated that the government shall not seek
to acquire another loan from any source
under five years. The bonds of this
syndicate are for one hundred pounds at
six per cent interest.
Mr. Powell adds that the English con
sul left on the morning of the date of his
letter on the steamer to sign the protocol
of agreement on the part of the syndi
cate. Mr. Powell also expresses the
fear that some concessions have been
made on the part of President Henreaux
that the English government shall se
cure quasi possession of Samana bay.

For Injury to a German
The Prisoner Is Released but the Ger

Associated Press Special Wire.
POUT AIT PRINCE, Hayti, Oct. 81.—
(Correspondence of the Associated
Press.) Serious trouble has arisen be
tween Hayti and Germany. The Ger
man minister to this republic. Count
Scherwin, has hauled down his flag',
and, according to current report, three
German warships are expected here to
back up the ultimatum of the minister
to Hayti, demanding indemnity for the
alleged illegal arrest and imprisonment
of a German citizen. The affair hat-,
caused considerable excitement among
the native population, and some of the
people have threatened to kill the Ger
man minister and all the Oermans in
the place and vicinity.
The affair grew out of the arrest here
a few weeks ago of a young German
named Linders. The Germans say that
a dozen policemen entered Llnders house
and arrested one of his servants. Mr.
Landers went to the central police head
quarters to complain against his action
of the police, but was himself arrested
and charged with assaulting and at
tempting to murder police officers in the
execution of their duty. Llnders was
promptly condemned to pay a fine of
$4S and to undergo one month's impris
onment, and was taken to jail. Claiming
he was innocent. landers demanded and
obtained a second trial. Witnesses testi
fied that they had not seen Mr. Linden?
strike any of the policemen and that
even if he had done so under the circum
stances he would not have broken the
laws of Hayti. In spite of this, Llnders
was condemned to pay a fine of $500 and
was sentenced to one year's imprison
ment. While the affair was purely in
the hands of the courts the German min
ister could do nothing to assist Linders
in a diplomatic way. Put when the sec
ond judgment was rendered the minis
ter telegraphed to Berlin, giving details
of the case, and asked for instructions on
the subject.
On October 17th the German minister
went to the president of Hayti and de
manded, in of the German em
peror, that Mr.binders be set at liberty,
and demanded for every day he spent
in prison, twenty-three in all, an in
demnity of $1000 in gold, adding that
for every day Linders was kept a pris
oner after that notification he (the Ger
man minister) would demand an indem
nity of $5000 in gold. At first the Hay
tian president refused to grant the Ger
man ministers' demand, and Mr. Lind
ers remained six days longer in prison.
This caused the German minister to
notify the Haytlan government that as
Mr. Linders had not been freed he had
hauled down his flag and had sent the
archives of the German legation to the
legation of the United States, thus break
ing off all relations with the Haytian
government. This caused great excite
ment, and disturbances wouTd have oc
curred, had they not been avoided by
sending Mr. Linders, who was threat
ened with lynching, on board a steamer
bound for New York, from which port
he was to sail for Germany. It is said
that the German minister, on the arrival
of the warships, will insist on the pay
ment of the indemnity demanded as a
result of the imprisonment of Mr. Lind
