Berlin, Nov. 28.—1 u the reichstag to-day the debate on the budget was resumeiL Herr Liebkueeht, radical, attacked the foreign policy of the government, aid sug gested that it ought to propose a general European disarmament. Herr von Boettiseher, the Prussian min ister of state and imperial secretary of state for the interior, declared that tho sugges tion was impracticable. Prince Bistnfrclr, he said, had never provoked a conflict. On the contrary, he steadfastly sought peace. Federal governments, Herr von Boettiseher said, were well aware that the social legislation of past years had not removed all the evils, but they would have been held forgetful < f duty if they had done nothing. Their en deavor had been to remedy evils singly. The government cast I ae ; upon the Hoc al ist party tho charge of pursuing a policy of aggravation, it was the desire of tho gov ernment to reconcile antagonism, and pro mote the welture of all classes. The colonial question was paramount in the debate, almost all of tho speakers r ferring to the subject. Herr Von Binuig sen said that Germany ought not to be dis couraged by failures in East Africa; she should not give up f 6 game as lost at the first check. England, Spain and Portugal had met with similar misfortunos at first.

Mr. Balfour opposed the motiouonthe ground that it would introduce great con fusion, and also, because it was against the interests of the purchasing tenant. The motion was rejected by a vote of 139 to 64. CONCESSIONS BY THE GOVERNMENT. Mr. Smith, the government loader, ap pealed to the House to assist iu closing the discussion on the bill. The government, he said, was desirous of meeting the opposition as far as possible, and would accept a series of amendments proposed by Mr. Healy, relating to sub-letting to laborers, and also a provision that the land commission shall not sanction an advance of money to a tenant, unless they are certain that tbo ap plication of the tenant was not made under duress. Tho government also intended to promote the bill dealing in the registration of titles. Messrs. Morley and Shaw-LeFevre both expressed themselves as satisfied with these concessions. Mr. Smith thereupon moved that the pur chase bill bo read the third time. Mr. Healy, however, objected on account of undue haste, and the bouse adjourned.

Against tiieir p ir don there has been but one formal protest— that, of tho Reform league. lam satisfied that the people believe mercy ought to be extended to these men. The punishment already endured has been sufficient to serve the ends of justice. The families of some of them have boon redue -d to a suffering condition since the imprisonment of their husbands and fathers.

Washington, Nov. 28. —Referring to the published statement that Congressman Matson is believed to be at the head of tho movement to organize a democratic G. A. R., that gentleman says he knows nothing of it except what he has read in the papers, aud consequently is not at the head or any other part of the affair. The other state ment in the dispatch—that his friends ex pect him to follow Gen. Palmer’s course and withdraw from the G. A. R., —he savs is also without foundation. He never was a member of the organization, and therefore cannot withdraw. During the campaign Matson and Myers regiments of veterans were formed in every county in Indiana, and it is probable that these or ganizations form the basis of the new move ment in that state, but of this he cannot speak by authority.

Atlanta, Ga., Nov. 38, — In the Senate to-day the special order was the bill to fix the salaries of the justices of the supreme courts and of the judges of the superior courts. The bill makes the salary of the chief justice of the supreme court $.1,000, that of the associate justices $1,500 each, and that of the judges of the superior courts $3,500 each.

Indeed ho had of fored that amendment in the com mitt o \ He made a forcible argument showing the laborious work of supreme court judgos, which, in more than one instance has resulted in the death of members of that bench. The pay of the justices is entirely inadequate nud small in comparison with the salaries paid by other states. Mr. Bart lett cited to tlie Senate t ho salaries paid the supreme and superior court justices of all the other states, showing that they all, with one or two exceptions, are far more liberal than Georgia. The bill provides that it shall not affect tho salaries of judgos now In commission. THE WORK THEY DO. Ho showed from statistics that our su preme court judges do more work those of any state according to population and re ceive the poorest pay. He urged that the necessity for such economy, if it existed in 1877, does n t now exist. The taxable property of the state has wonderfully in creased and the tax rate ha. !>een greatly decreased. With tho increase of property and population there has been a propor tionate l acrosst in the work of our judges. There is no reason now why they should bo paid niggardly salaries.

Capek had also given him some bombs, because, as Capek said, he was too well known to use them. Inspector Bonfleld was cross-exami oil without re sult, and the state rested its case.

He never belonged to an anarchistic society and did not behave there wus such a thiug in existence. A GENERAL DENIAL. Ho then mado a general denial of the truth of Cbleboun’s story.
