FOREIGN AFFAIRS.
Germany's Foreign Minister Says That Presi
dent Cleveland's Charges Are Devoid
of Foundation.
Berlin, Dec. 9.—The relchstag adopted
today without debate resolutions sus
pending all legal actions against Herr
[William Liebknecht and other socialist
members of the relchstag who are under
charges of lese majeste and other of
fenses during the present session of the
chamber.
Count Posadowsky-Wehner, imperial
minister of the treasury, submitted the
budget,and in his speech presenting it de
nied insinuations which had been made
that the represented receipts of the gov
ernment had been manipulated in order
to postpone financial measures.
Herr Fritzen, centrist, criticised the
budget in an approving manner, the
chamber, with the exception of the so
cialist members, assenting to his re
marks. He also thanked the govern
ment and the municipalities of Hamburg,
Lubeck and Bremen for their entertain
ment of members of the relchstag upon
the occasion of the fetes celebrating the
opening of the Baltic-North sea canal.
Continuing his remarks, Fritzen ex
pressed hope that the foreign office
would at the earliest opportunity ex
plain the threatened retaliatory meas
ures of the United States against Ger
many. which if carried out would be de
plorable. It has advised Gen. Bronsart
Von Schelfendorf, the minister of war,
to accede to the demand for the publicity
of military tribunals.
Baron Marschall Von Bieberstein. min
ister of foreign affairs, in reply to Herr
Fritzen'B remarks concerning the tariff
situation between Germany and the
United States said that the American
congress had some time since adopted a
differential duty on sugar. Germany had
protested agamst this and Mr. Cleve
land did loyally all he had power to do
in the matter, but congress refused to
modify its previous action. Germany, he
declared, maintained that the differen
tial duty adopted by the American con
greES is a violation or me eAisiine ucaij.
President Cleveland’s message charging
Germany with applying differential
treatment to certain American exports
was a great surprise. He then proceeded
to show that the charges made by the
president were devoid of foundation.
The prevalence of Texas fever among
cattle proved that the prohibition of the
Importation of American meats into Ger
many was necessary, but the same meas
ures were in (existence against other
states than America.
Concerning the cancellation of the li
censes of American companies he said
that certain American insurance com
panies doing business in Prussia had
had their license revoked because they
would nbt conform to “the laws, which
were the same for German companies
and foreign companies. If the American
companies would undertake to conform
to the laws nothing could prevent them
from reopening their business. This mat
ter, he said, was purely a German con
cern. over which he could not admit the
criticism of a foreign government. Ger
many. he continued, would loyally con
tinue to adhere to her treaties, not allow
ing herself to be frightened by their
threats.
More Soldiers Arrive.
Havana, Dec. 9.—A party composed of
■ sixty soldiers of the Barcelona regiment,
forty-five hussars from the Roedas regi
ment and twenty volunteers had-an en
gagement yesterday at Palma Ray with
a band of 800 rebels belonging to the
command of the insurgent leader, Rtcado
Piz. -The fight lasted an hour and a half.
The Spaniards had five men killed and
five wounded. The loss of the rebels was
very heavy.
The steamers Reina Christina, Colon,
Cuidad, Cadiz, Leon XIIL Santiago and
Satrustejul arrived here from Spain to
day, brinmpg a full load of troops.
Among the officers who came with the
troops are Generals Marino, Pando, Fer
nandez, Sosada, Pina Bazan, Ray, Toral
and Spiritu. The city was nrofusely dec
orated with flags, and the reception givpri
to the troops was very enthusiastic. The
streets were crowded with people, who
cheered the soldiers repeatedly.
A Burning Ship Wrecked.
London, Dec. 9.—A dispatch from Leith
Bays a report has reached there that the
steamer Principia, from Shields, via Dun
dee, November 16, for New York, was
discovered to be on Are under the fore
hatch when 140 miles off Cape Wrath,
the most northerly point of Scotland.
The steamer was put before the wind
land ran for Faroe islands. Approaching
the island she struck a rock and went
down in. forty fathoms of water. Twenty
Beven of the ship’s company were drown
ed and one was rescued by a boat from
shore. A passenger named Jackson was
also drowned.
A New Man in Politics.
Berlin. Dec. 9.—Baron VonDerrieke
.Vonder Horst, the newly appointed Prus
sian minister of the interior. Is a new
man in politics, and is not connected with
any party in partfcular. He has, how
ever, proved his capacity as a purely ad
ministrative official. The change In the
ministry of the interior does not imply
any change In the policy of the kaiser,
[which is absolutely unmodified.
The government will not discuss in the
relchstag the question of the dissolution
of the socialist unions, declining to do
BO upon the ground that It is wholly a
Prussian concern.
Gales in Italy.
Borne, Dec. 9.—Terrific gales have pre
vailed throughout Italy and along the
coast within the last twenty-four hours.
Twenty or more wrecks are reported
from various seaports, in which there
was great loss of life.

COMMITTEEMEN ACCEPT.
The Movement for United Veterans Parade Is
Assuming Definite Shape—The Com
mittee to Be Enlarged.
New York, Dec. 9.—The executive com
mittee of the United Veterans parade
met at noon today in the rooms of the
board of trade and transportation. Mr.
Charles A. Dana, chairman of the execu
tive committee, not being present, Gen.
Daniel Buttertleld acted as temporary
chairman.
Colonel Garrett, the secretary, then
read letters from C. P. Huntington, Carl
Schurz. Jordan L. Mott, William Butler,
Col. Daniel C. Appleton, Alex Hamilton,
Capt. Edwin C. Owens, C. F. Dillingham,
C. C. Shayne and Ex-Governor Flower
consenting to serve as members of the
executive committee as lequested, or to
co-operate in any way desirable. But
tivo, Gen. Horace Porter and Col. C. M.
Bliss, declined, both giving business rea
sons.
General Butterfield stated that it had
been agreed that Ihe present committee
was to small and Mr. Dana had deemed
it best to increase it by adding twenty
flvo new members.
Colonel Garrett then stated that he
had some resolutions to offer and read
them. The first was that the chairman
of the committee, Mr. Dana, appoint for
each state and territory auxiliary com
mittees of five members, one of whom
should reside in New York city and have
charge of all matters pertaining to that,
state or territory. The resolution was
finally passed after considerable argu
ment, some deeming it the better plan to
refer it to a committee on plan and scope
to be appointed by the chair.
Colonel Garrett also offered resolu
tions that the chairman of the general
committee prepare an address to the gov
ernors of each state and territory inviting
them with their staffs to be present and
participate in the parade; also that sim
ilar invitations be sent to the command
ers of all Grand Army posts and United
Confederate Ve-terans organizations. A
third resolution invited all unorganized
veterans to effect organizations in their
neighborhoods and take part in the pa
rade. All clergymen throughout the
country were also asked by resolution
to lend their assistance to the parade
from the pulpit and otherwise, and that
newspapers be requested to give the invi
tations ail the publicity possible.
Colonel Garrett in offering the resolu
tions said he considered it wise to pass
these resolutions; that In order to make
the parade a success it must be given all
the publicity possible. He did not doubt
but that the proper invitation would be
sent to all in time, but that the Grand
Army men needed considerable notice
in order to perfect their arrangements to
come, and he considered these advance
invitations would have a good effect.
After some discussion ail the resolu
tions were referred to the committee on
plan and scope, after which the commit
tee'adjourned to meet at the call of the
chair.
