increased to a hurricane, and the set sails
were blown into ribbons. The sea washed
everything moveable from the decks and
carried away the rails and bulwarks.
The vessel was hove to Sunday night and
had begun to leak. The men worked in
cessantly at the pumps, but the water gained
so fast and the vessel rolled so heavily that
they were forced on Monday forenoon to
abandon her, she having become unmanage
able. The crew took to the boats. Two
seamen were badly injured by seas break

the brig all night, and several of
the crew were badly frost-bitten,

hold, and they returned to the boat. The
Percy arrived when the crew were almost
exhausted, having had no food for forty
eight ho rs.
The Percy took the brig in tow, but was
unable to hold her, and finally let ner go
adrift. She was a good vessel, of 406 tons,
built at Milbridge in 1873, and recently re

She was owned by Darrah & Elwelt of
Philadelphia, her hailing port.

Springer of the committee on territories is
one the democrats who hope to read in the
President’s message a recommendation that
the bill to enable Dakota, Montana, New
Mexico and Washington to be admitted as
states be passed at the coming session. Mr.
Springer hopes to see it passed through the
House. He has much hope that the Senate
will pass it. A division of Dakota is para
mount in the republican plan, but even
more influential in promoting their opposi
tion to the Springer scheme will bo their
desire to have the republican congress
coming in next year get the credit for any
new states admitted. The republicans do
not propose to admit Now Mexico. They
will propose in their scheme the admission
of South Dakota, Montana and Washing
ton. Mr. Springer, who was out in the Okla
homa country during the recess, proposes to
press the bill opening up that tract to set
tlement, but it cannot get through this

ceived hundreds of tolegrams inquiring
whether the pope intends to quit Rome.

cios abroad that nothing has been decided

tion of coldness between Germany and the

Source of Danger—The German and
French Budgets Still under Debate.
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.
Referring to the naval loan, bo sai l that
the amount asked was not sufficient to build
and equip twenty-eight additional vessels,
and he demanded a careful examination of
the questions.
The Cologne Gazette , alluding to the re
ported differences between Prince Henry of
Keuss, the German ambassador at Vienna,
and Count von Taafe, the Austrian prime
minister, says that Germany regards wiih
rather increasing disgust the growing
strength and significance of tho e Austrian
parties which are at heart hostile to the
Gorman alliance.
The Post, discussing the situation in Aus
tria, expresses fear that the influence of
Germany is seriously threatened, and that
the alliance is imperilled.
Paris, Nov. 28.— The budget committee
of the chamber of deputies, before approv
ing the extra budget of 1,000,000 francs for

Peytral, minister of finance, on the extent
of the resources already available.
London, Nov. 29, 3 a. m. —The St. Pet ers
burg correspondent of the Daily News s.i) s:
“It is asserted in Panslavist quarters th ;t
positive proofs have been obtained that
King Milan has formally joined the triple
alliance and that a secret treaty which he
has signed will be published shortly. It :s
hoped that this will provoke a revolution in
The Daily Telegraph's correspondent at
St. Petersburg says: “The minister of
fi iance hopes to induce America to invest
her surplus revenue in Russian loans. Hence
the ukase referring to the new loan ex
pressly fixed the rate of exchange at which
the interest on the present loan will he paid
in American dollars.”
The Government Makes a Few Con
cessions to the Opposition.
London, Nov. 28. —The debate on the
Irish land purchase bill was resumed in the
House of Commons this evening. Mr.
Mahoney, nationalist, moved the insertion
in the bill of anew clause to the effect that
tho land commission shall take as security
for the payments by tenants of their in
stallments, improvements executed by tho
tenant, or bis predecessor, in his title.
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.
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
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.
In the House of Commons this evening,
Mr. Balfour said that Edward Harrington
would not be arrested under the pending
warrant against him during tho debates on
the Irish estimates.
Mr. Smith announced the withdrawal of
the Whiel tax bill.

wero examined before the Parnell commis
sion to-day with reference to outrages in

gave evidence regarding the proceedings of
the local league, of which he, himself, was
a member. Ho had heard the word
“roaster” used at the meetings of the league,
but he did not know its meaning.
Mr. Shannon, a Dublin solicitor, who Is
assisting the Times, testified that Kennedy
told him that tho local league had a list of
“roasters” hung up in its office. Tho
rooster meant a turnspit for roasting or
boyc tting landlords. The people were
forbidden to work for men whose names
were on the list of roasters.
The court then adjourned.

preme court to-day refused the attorneys
for Fleming, the deni icratio candidate for
governor, a writ of prohibition prohibiting
the county courts from counting Lewiston

Election Judges and Clerks Let Out
of Prison.
Baltimore, Md., Nov. 28.—Gov. Jack
son to-day pardoned Hezekiah S. Best.
Martin J. Clark and John W. McMahon,
who are serving a term in tbo Baltimore
city jail for fraud at the election of 1886.
Gov. Jackson, referring to the pe
titions for tlio pardon of these
election judges and clerks said:
“The petitions which have been laid before
me contain the names of every member of
the legislature, nearly every leading busi
ness house in Baltimore and thousands of
other private citizens. 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. In view of thoso
circumstance?, 1 have determined to issue
the pardons.”
Congressman Mat3on Not Even a
Member of the Present Order.
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.

Two Amendments Proposing: to He
ducothe Amount Fixed by the BUI
Voted Down- A Bill to Accept the
Proffer of Federal Aid to A art
cultural Colleges.
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.
The general judiciary committee proposed
to amend by making the salaries of the
chief justice ami associate justices of the
supreme court SI,OOO oaeh and that of su
perior court judges #,'>,ooo each.
Mr. Sanford moved to amend this by
making the salaries of the supreme court
justices #3,500, and the superior court judgos
$2,501 each.
Mr. Bartlett, the author of the bill, made
an argument in its behalf. He favored the
amendment of the general judiciary, mak
ing the salary of the chief justices of the
supreme court $4,000, the same as that of
the associate justices. 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
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. The amendmet
offered by Mr. Hanford was lost by a vote
of 15 to 21.
The amendment proposed by the com
mittee was lost by a vote of 15 to 18.
Mr. Hall then moved to reconsider the
vote by which the amendment offered by
Mr. Hanford was lost.
Mr. Ballard objected.
Mr. Hall moved to recommit the bill,
which motion prevailed.
Mr. Hall introduced a bill to provide for
wliat shall operate as the ro-conveyanoo of
property deeded to secure debt, in the same
manner as the cancellation of mortgages.
Among the bills passed were the follow
To amend tho act providing for tho ap
npointment of a solicitor of the county
court of Oconoe so that tho official shall bo
a resident of that county.
To authorize the county commissioners of
Thomas to sell the present jail lot and in
vest the money in another.
Mr.” Whitfield Introduced a hill to accept
$150,000 appropriated by congress for agri
cultural purposes, with tho provisions and
conditions attached thereto, and that the
same be distributed among tho agricultural

He Denies That Lets an Anarchist or
Plotted to Kill.
Chicago, Nov. 28.--The criminal court
room was crowded this morning when tho
Hronek dynamite trial was resumed.
Hronek had changed a good deal in his
appearance since yesterday morning. Ho
looked worried, and shifted about nervously
in his seat and eagerly listened to overy
word of testimony.
The first witness was Officer Muchaski,
one of Inspector Bonfleld's B dieiniau de
tectives. He gave the jury the details of
the confession made by Hronek after his
arrest. After the conspirators had been
locked up in jail Muchaski visited Hronek
in his cell. Hronek had a copy of the Daily
New s in his hand. “1 have jusi. been reading
here,” he said, “that some of the people who
were arrested with me are giviug things
away ad putting all the blame on me.
Now, I am going to tell the whole truth.”
Muchaski then arranged a meeting be
tween Hronek, Inspector Bonfleld and u
stenographer in tho library of the jail.
Hronek’s revelations at this and subsequent
interviews was stated. This officer’s testi
mony was corroborated in part by Officer
Louis Haas.
Officer Hbainer testified that on July 22,
in the state’s attorney’s office, in an ad
ditional statement, Hronek said that Capek
told him that the German anarchists wanted
to start a fire in the city to avenge the death
of Spies. 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.
For the defense Hronek was put on the
stand, and said tiiat lie was not an anarchist
and never had been. He never belonged to
an anarchistic society and did not behave
there wus such a thiug in existence.
Ho then mado a general denial of the
truth of Cbleboun’s story. He never made,
manufactured, Ixtught, oold or procured
any dynamite. He never said thalj he threw
the bomb at the Hayruarket, and was not
there. He had never been harmed by Bon
field, Gary or Grinuell, and bail no reason
for seeking revenge on them, nor did ho
ever threaten to do so. He never said that
be was prepared to kill President Cleveland
or would go into tho court room with bombs.
Kara flat, be said, left a box of bombs and
dynamite at bis bouse in Ootolter, 1886, anil
never returned lor it. He bad never heard
from Karaflat but once since then, aud that
was when he received a lettor from him
dated at Memphis last May. Boon after
the bombs were left at his house,
IJronoK snid be grow Afraid and
threw fifteen of them into the river, tin
cross-examination Hronek said that the
cans found in his woodshed were put there
by an old man who hoarded at his house
and who pickod them up on the lake front
among refuse. They were designed to hold
paint, and for other harmless uses.
The hearing was adjourned till Friday.
The Governor and Comptroller [Go
After Cannon.
Annapolis, Md., Nov. 28.—C01. Victor
Baughman, state comptroller, and one of
the state fishery board, has been aboard tho
state steamer McLane, making a secret
official investigation of the Chesapeake bay
oyster troubles. His report submitted to
the board to-day stales that the state force,
though willing to carry out the laws, was
without proper equipment; that officers
complain when violators of the oyster laws
are Drought before justices of tbe peace, or
arraigned in court, delays aie interposed
and technical defenses allowed that result
in the acquittal of the accused. This lends
to demoralize tbe force. The
hoard determined that every effort
should I e made to bring the offenders to
punishment and to uphold the dignity of
the state. Sealed orders were sent to the
deputy commanders of the force. It was
resolved to equip every vessel with cannon
as well ns other weapons, and to secure the
use of these the governor and comptroller,
us directed, went to Washington.

authorized the sending of the following
communication to the Associated Press:
Augusts, Ga., Nov. 28,1888.
The Associated Press-
The Augusta national exposition has im
pressed us by its scope, completeness ami gre it
practical value to nil industrial and commercial
Im.-rests. It is a grand combination of tho
textile Industries of the north and south; first,
in the latest forms in fine machinery
in operation; second, in exhibits of
fabrics from southern mills. Next to
these leading features are many exhibits illus
trative of the developments made within elghb
years in all the region east of tho Mississippi
and south of the Ohio and Potomac. Thee*
show something of the vast natural resourced
of the sections tiiat have been opened to capi
tal and diversified industry by the new railroads
since ISMI. and also of the immense increase ia
manufactures in the same regions during tltab
time. Largo exhibits of raw materials from
uulmproved places testify to the
undeveloped wealth of soutu, and
to tho opportunities * that era
open to capitalists. The illsplay of agrinultur il
and horticultural products, proves that. tiia
south can produce all its own feed supplies,
and have a great surplus for shipment to lend
favored sections. All in all, this exposition id
an object lesson of inestimable value to intel
ligent men. It is also full of suggestiond
to farmers, manufacturers aud artisans,
and to all who are seeking rr>
better their fortunes. For these reasons, the
undersigned most heartily commend it to public ;
attention, and urge all whom they can influence
to visit it before it shall close on Dec. 15.

in this part of the state by the discovery
that White Caps, who have heretofore con
fined their ravages to Southern and Central
Ohio ami Indiana, have extended their
operations into Northwestern Ohio. All over
