Established 1860. Incorporated 1888. V I J. H. ESTILL, President. / \ jHARD WORKING KAISER (disposition pails to make HIM LESS INDUSTRIOUS. he Officials of His Cabinet Kept on the Jump Filling Orders for Reports [Wanted in Tweniy-Four Hours—Pros ecution of the Press—l he Week’s [Festivities. Berlin, Dec. I.— The emperor’s prolonged tsence from public life has given rise to mors that he is suffering from an aural imor which is assuming an aggravated irm. Some official reports state fiat his illness is simply a so- Ire cold contracted through ex posure during the recent hunt at lietz tjigf. No medical advice has beon sought tyyond that of th.- household physicians. Is ear complaint slightly increased during 3 bight of his catarrhal fever, but ini jj-oved with the return of his normal health, rjlthough the weather is mild, the emperor :j ad vised to remain indoors for some days tl come. NO TIME WASTED. He has been in excellent spirits and has Hen fit fo* work throughout the week, re viving visitors and transacting busi..e<s jist as usual. He employed part of his enforced leisure in elaborating the details of further army and navy reforms. He kept bis military cabinet very de manding immediate reports on a variety of questions. The officials of the cabinet find his incessant activity sometimes too much for them. He keeps them working some times night audjday, insisting that there be no delay in the reports ho demands, his unvarying orders being to reply within twenty-four hours. ADMIRALTY OFFICIALS ALSO BUSY. Tho admiralty officials share the excite ment of the war office, which has been especially stimulated this wee.; by messages from the emperor referring to the uaval estimates, the details of which remain un settled. The emperor’s orders extend i to every other department. He has held sev- conferences witli Prince Henry of Iteuss. the German embassador at Vienna, in regard to his i ter view with Count von Taafe, the Austrian prime minister. PROSECUTING THE PRESS. Tho emperor has ordered the prosecution of several pavers for publishing ti.nt part of the lute Emperor Frederick’s diary w hich rela ed to the Austro-Prussiap war. be-idos tho Kieler Zeitung and Freissinnige , tlie organs now being proseeu ed under tiie em peror’s orders. He has every leading paper dissected for him daily. He was especially irritated by the statement of the Freisinige that Empress Victoria exclusively owned the diaries and all the journals ol the Em peror Frederick, including a number of unopened documents, which were secured by private seal, and which the ex-empress had deposited ui the royal archives. FESTIVE AT NIGHT. After business, the emperor has made the evening festive. There was a family din ner Wednesday, at which were present Prince Leopold, the Duke and Duchess of Mecklenburg-Schwerin and the officers and ladies of the court. Ou Thursday a ba quet was given in ho or of the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess Vladimir of Russia, and last evening a reception was held, at which the same guests were present. Altogether it was a lively weeii's work for a sick man. To-day the emperor ought to have gone on a hunt at Spring Hanover, but he sent Prince Leopold in his stead. CONSIDERATION OF THE BUDGET. The re chstag commission w ill begin to consider the budget Monday, and will sit daily in order to report, before Christmas. Tho commission will hear privately more about armaments than was diaclo ed in tho or>en debate in tbo reichstag. The chief of the admiralt , Admiral Monte, candidly told the reichstag that the memorandum he read was an inadequate representation of the projected increase of the navy, but he promised to give full information to the commission. 30,000,000 MARKS NEEDED. Herr von Bennigsen, commenting on the estimates, showed that 110,000,000 marks could not possibly cover the cost of the building of twenty-eight ves sels, and that tho armaments alone, opart from the increased expense for crows, would necessitate an ad ditional expenditure of 00.u00.000 marks The feeling of distrust among the me n* hers of the reichstag regarding the appro priations lor armaments is on the increase. The deba e brought out a reminder that last Tear Gen. Von. Capriri, the predecessor of Vice Admiral Monte as chief of the ad miralty, presented a memorandum to tho effect that the navy, although small, was in tho best of condition and able to meet any demand that might bo made upon it in case oi war. A POINTED QUERY. The members of the reichstag now ask for what reason tho government declares that not a single ship is equal to modern requirements. Tho budget is destined to closer scrutiny and more opposition than seemed probable. Herr Liebktmcht’s de nunciation of the government’s foreign policv has found no sympathetic criticism, even in progressist organ■. Hut his criticism of tho invalid work men’s insurance project will assuredly havo an influence in modifying tho bill. THE ANNUITY INSUFFICIENT. A majority of the members of the reichstag agree that the annuity secured to an invalided or aged workmau is insuffi cient. Numerous petitions, signed by mauy thousands of workmen, have boon presented to the reichstag, protesting against both the meagerness of tho an nuity and the lateness of age, 70 years, when it is claimable. Workmen circles also fiercely oppose the system piopoaed that each work mnn should carry a Look for the recording of payments, as apt to become a dangerous weapon in tho hands of hostile enterprises. In consequence of the general dislike, tho measure will be withdrawn, or altered. CLOSING OF THE SESSION. The report that the government intend to close the session in February, and to dissolve the H .use early in the autumn, is obtaining currency among progressists and centrists, but is discredited by government groups. Herr Rickert, ac cepting the report as probable, said he deemed the time opportune for tho intro duction of a motion to tho effect that the federal governments instruct their agents maintain more striot observance ♦ l ®l®ctorai law. Ho supported fho motion by citing numerous arbitrary arrest*, duriug the last election of distribu ters of voting papers, ami others engaged in legitimate electoral business He also showed to be illegal the prohibition and dis solution of public meetings, w hich, ho said, amounted to the suppression of the right °f the electors to combine. CONFIRMED BY MOCIALISTS. Socialists Singer and Itroeber confirmed tun statements of Herr Rickert, declaring that government agents everywhere inter bred to wipe out the socialist*!. Herr Marquardson (national) admitted existence of the grievances denounced, and urged that even in the interest of tbe government an inquiry would be useful. He therefore proposed that the motion be remitted to the commission on verification of elections. The house assented by a large majority. The socialist electoral manifesto predicts a struggle of unusual vehemence. FOR A FIVE-YEAR TERM. It reminds the electors that the reichstag w'ill be elected not for three years, as here tofore, but for five years, and says that, by virtue of the resolutions of the Saint Gall congress, socialist candidates should be nom inated in every ditrict where there areany adherents of the party, even if the chance of election be remote, in order to show the number of socialists in the empire. The socialists, the manifesto further says, are hopeful that the electorate is com ing to its senses and will not again be scared by the war phantoms evoked in 1887. The issuance of the manifesto appears to be rather prema ture. The term of the reichstag expires Feb. 22, 1890. Before then war’s sternest realities may enwrap Europe. GREATER SOCIALIST ACTIVITY. In the meantime the manifesto heralds greater activity in the socialist agitation, win e the reichstsg’s proceedings discourage police interferei.ee. This was seen in tho marvelous toleration accorded to tbe social ist workmen’s demonstration last evening. At their meeting Herr von Signor made a strong speech, in w hich ho denounced the invalid workman’s insurance bill. The police dissolved the meeting, but they did not interfere with the street demonstration. A large number of workmen formed in procession and paraied the streets singing the “Mar seillese.” They crossed theUnterden Lin den and proceeded to the residence of Herr von Singer, where they disperse 1. The police greedily watched tbe procession, but did not make a single arrest. WAR ON THE SLAVERS. Prince Bismarck will appear in the reichstag on the occasion of tbe debate on colonial affairs. A hitch has occurred with England over the East Africa blockade agreement. Lord Salisbury’s statement in the House of Lords that Germany did not intend to combine her land and sea operations is in direct variance with the views of the Berlin government. If Prince Bismarck’s pla .s are effected mil itary action will accompany tho blockade of the stations along the coast and for some distance in tho interior. The government holds that a blockade alone would bo futile. Permanent possession of tho coast is tiie only means of suppressing the slave trade, besides enabling the government to termi nate the blockade. BACK TO VIENNA. Prince Henry of Reuss left yesterday and returned to his post at Vienna. He has seen Prince Bismarck, t eside bav.ng a con ference with theempqror. Tbe newspaper row regarding the episode between Prince Henry of Iteuss and Count von Taafe, has not affected the relatio s between tho governments. Prince Henry of Reuss, before leaving Ber lin, denied that his relations with Count von Tnafo had decreased in cordiality. It is certain that Prince Bismarck would not allow Prince Henry to remain at Vienna if his presence tended to weaken the alli ance between the governments, nor won and (’omit Kalnoky suffer the existence of an Austrian premier who was conducting an intrigue against his foreign policy. HAS HIS EMPEROR'S CONFDENCE. Count von Taafe has the intimate per sonal confidence of Emperor Francis Joseph, of whom he was an early playmate and close friend until Francis Joseph was raised to the throne. He is a support rof Count Kalnoky*s alliance policy, though he re cently admitted a Czech representation in t e cabinet owing to internal necessities. Tbe newspaper war has disclosed a i intense Austro Hungarian jealou y of German su premacy. the Vossiclie Zeitung bavi ig re marked that Austro-Hungary must be true to tho alliance or she would cease to exist. AN ASTOUNDING POSSIBILITY. The Pesther Lloyd responded that the Austrian empire was not a German do pendency, and might re jounce the alliance, becoming the center of a Franco-Austro- Russian coalition against Germany. Tho controversy is deplored in official circle; here, but it delights the French pres-*, and enchants tho Russian press into dreaming of an immediate • uptime of the alliance, ihe Warsaw Dnewrick yesterday predicted that a combined |Russo-Austriau force would yet invade Gormany, break up the empire, and place Prussia upoa her own level. Happily the discussion is abating, beyond n semi-official article in tho Fremdenhlatt , which Las hitherto been silent on the sub ject. It says that the German government is an entire stranger to the attacks made on Austrian personages in the German prass, and never abandons its attitudo of absolute neutrality toward tho internal affairs of other governments. IIIS LEAVE CURTAILED. Count Szechenye, the Austrian ambassa dor to Germany, wtio has been enjoying a vacation in Hungary, has bad his leave of absence curtailed in consequence of newspaper dissensions. He was re ceived in audience by Emperor Francis Joseph yesterday, when ho was instructed to return to his pot. The origin of tho dispute is traceable to an article in tho Vienna Schwarzgeld , in which a writer indulged in c arse abuse of Germany, especially referring to the enmity of Crown Prince Rudolph toward Emperor William. CAUSE OF THE BREACH. Reports current in Vienna attribute the breach of former friendship be tween Prince Rudolph and Emperor William to commu nications which, it is asserted, gave verbal criticisms by Prince Rudolph on tho em peror's family relations. Those communi cations are said to have reached Emperor William from London. A personal quarrel certainly exists, but it is not probable that it will be allowed to interfere with national interests. ORDERED OUT OF THE HOUSE. Cunningham Graham Refuses to Re tract an Accusation. London, Dec. L—ln the House of Com mons to-day tbo speaker ordered Cunning ham Graham (advanced liberal), member for tho northwest division of Lanarkshire, to withdraw from the house because he had accused Mr. Smith, the government leader, of conniving at a dishonorable trick and had refused to retract the accusation. As Mr. Graham was leaving the house a member shouted, “Bravo, Graham.” CAUSE OF THE TROUBLE. In nn interview Mr. Graham explained that the trouble arose over the action of Brooker Robinson, conservative member fur Dudley, in putting a motion on paper to prevent discussion upon cabin makers’ grievances. Mr. Graham has characterised this as a dishonorable trick and had ex pressed the l*elief tliat tho government bad instigated Mr. Robinson to perform it. He had refused to withdraw this statement, and hence his dismissal. Mr. Graham .-ays he wifi not apologize, no matter what the re sult may be. A Stormy Passage. Queenstown, Dec. 1. The steamer Etruria from New York Nor, 34, arrived here to-day. She was delayed bv a fearful gale after leaving New York. Isevoral of the passenger* were knocked over and suffered some injuries.

ENGLAND AND THE SLA VETS. Tbo Proposal to Send Troop* to Sua k m Discussed. London, Dec. 1. —Tho House of Commons wont into committee of supply this after noon on a vote of £236,200 for embassies and mis Mons abroad. John Mcrley moved a nominal reduction in order to raise discussion on the proposal to send British troops to Saakitn. He de nounced the government’* policy of shed ding blood and wasting the country’s treas ure in projects which would res dt in no good to tmy human being. Tho govern ment ought either to advise the Egyptian government to abandon tho situat ion, or Em. land ought to make a more serious at. tempt to suppress tho slave trade and intro duce civilizing forces into tho Sou lan. RESPONSIBILITY DISCLAIMED. Sir James parliamentary sec rotary to tbo foreign office, replied that tho present government was not re*ponsi ble for tho waste of treasure and blood in the Soudan. The advice *ent to the Egypt ian government was to maintain a purely defensive p *li<*y witn as small a fore** as pos sible, and to devote its funds t * the internal development of the country. But a defen sive policy did not imply a kurrendor of Sunkim, which would leave the country overruu with Arabs. SI KKIM’S IMPORTANCE. In the surrender of Hu kirn the only Rta tion would be given up from which ships could operate on the Red sea coast for the suppression of the slave trade. Surely, said Hir James, Mr. Morley did not seriously suggest absolute u ! andonment ot tSuakim. Recurring to the slave trade, the speaker said he was able to intimate that govern ment had proposed to Belgium to initiate fresh references to tho powers on tbo lines indicated by Cardinal Lavigre with a view of mitigating the evil. POLICY OF THE GOVERNMENT. It was the policy of the government'to eneourge e mnierre with Central and East Africa. The development of commerce was the best method of combating the slave traffic. If a road was pushed into tli in terior, so that cheap and easy transporta tion was avail ible, the system of slave porterage would no longer be pr fitable. Ho trusted that th** bouso would support work promising such blessings to humanity. (Cheer*. 1 Mr Morley’amotion was rejected by a vote of 136 to 101. ON THE EMERALD ISLE.

CHICAGO’S RED MONSTER. ANARCHISTS PREPARING FOR A WOULD-WIDE OUTBREAK. The Danco of Death Apt to be Begun with the First General Strike Police Fear that Next Year’s Bastlle Cele bration May Inaugurate the Blood shed. Chicago, Dec. I.—A local paper, refer ring to the revival of the anarchistic agita tion in this city, says so much has been writ ton during the past two years in wholesale denunciation of the anarchists that the pub lic may have become accustomed, if not in sensible, to stateme is that would otherwise have been alarming. For this reason tuis paper has con fined its statements concerning theso meetings to a bare, unvarnished an nouncement of them until investlgat :i warranted more.

The moveinaut is local, national and 1 ternational according to information L'.ly authenticated now in the hunds of the ' - cago police. Not very long ago a commit' o of six was appointed in tnis city, to tai.e into consideration ways and me a s fr revif ing the revolutionary cause. No ■* at present knows now this c mmittes rui nated. It was leas thau throe days ag it the names of those six propaganda * reached tho private drawer of Insp oj Bonfield, but ho has them, and unless e policy of the city government. iutorv -ties, they will be placad under arrest within p - sibly twe.ity-f -ur hours. THE INVISIBLE COMMITTEE. They are known ns “the invisible on a mlttoe,” that is, they are supposed tle unknown to the masa pf the anarchists in Chicago, notwithstanding they have sole control and direction of the movements of the organization. They work with other anarchists individually, and not ns a body, and hold their ide tity sacredly secret. This plan was adopted because of tno failure of the central or auization plan, which brought Spies and Parsons and the others, to the gallows. This sort of “invisible” head work w as begun about, a year ago, and progressed very slowly at. first, but as soon ns tho revolutionists fully realized that there was a directing fountainhead, t hey rallied around tho revolutionary standard, and due'ing tho past few months the prepara tions for revolution havo been going for wurd with great activity. OTHER ORDERS IN THE PLOT, Aside from the majority of 32, the organi zation allllia'ed with the Central La or Union. The invisible committee has been propagating tho revolutionary causu through a number of anarchistic societies, prominent among which are the newly Formed “Aibeiter Hu id;” tho A. It. Par sons Assembly. N'. i,”a reorganization of the expelled Knights of Labor As ombv No. 1,:’>70, of which Parsons was tho lead ing member; the Socialistic Publishing Society, which owns and controls tho Arbeifer Zextung on the communistic plan. The Workingmen’s Defense Association, wblch raised iTie money to defend Hronok and his feilow conspirators, is also active in tho work. PLAN OF THE CAMPAIGN. The plan of campaign, as nearly as It has been comprehe tiled by tho police, is, so far as Dublin associations and meetings are con cerned, to tenon anarchy, to create in the minds of socialists hatred of the law and law ofilcsers, and to his ire a spirit of re venge for tbo execution of Spies un i his comrades. Their teachings are carried out by speeches, more or less incendiary. Tho movement is growing bolder every day. CIRCULAR OK THE ARBKITER BUND. The Ar be iter Bund is the latest form of revolutionary agitation, and at its last pub lic meeting, held on Thanksgiving duy, a circular, the substance of which was given in these dispatches last night, was secretly distributed among those present, who were supposed to be true to the cause. Tho cir cular purports to have ecu printed in IKB3, at Pittsburg, but that is a deception. The original wa> issued by tho congress of tho International Working People’s Association, Oct. Hi, 18S& These edition*, however, were exhausted long ago. A now batch has been printed in close imitation of the old one, and is being distributed in the interests of anarchy. ONLY TEN DAYS OLD. The Ar better Ilund has a public career of leas than ton days, but its projectors have been at work secretly for Home lime and have matured a plan of propaga ing anarchy under cover of the labor move ment \ cry much on the plan of two year* ago, which culminated In the terrible slaughter at the Huy market. Then it was that tho Reds espoused the eight hour move ment, not because they believed in it. but because it was the sensation of tho dav and they were cornpolled to fall in with it. It whs then arranged for a general strik • In May in tho eight hour cause, and f o anarchists prepared their bombs and ;; t ready for inaugurating social rov- l iti a that, day. The result is fresh in the minds of all. History is repeating itself iu this respect. A COMING CONVENTION. The American Federation of Trades will hold a convention in Kt. Louis this month, at which Ps delegates, representing the various trades assemblies throughout the country, will endeavor to fix upou some day in 18'.#) for another eight hour strike. The anarchists appear to h.i e already fore seen their opportunity, and besides' doing all they can to ferment the strike into national disorder, they will no doubt l>e ready with their bombs and other machines of destruction, in order to mako another attempt at doing ui the new social eya em This I* the generally accepted nlao, mid it is for the accomplishment of this end that the work of public agitation has bee i re Burned. THEORY or THE POLICE. The police, however, hnve quite an ther idea. They have been informed ms state l sometime ago, that the anarchists will make another destructive demonstrate>n on the 100th anniversary of the fall of the bast lie, which occurs in July next, and the authorities are making preparation, b -tu hero a.d in New York l) prevent it. How ever this may be, there is strong ground fur expecting an outbreak on the oa it ihi of the first labor strike that assumes any thing like national proportions. George Schilling was asked last evening if ho expect* and another outbreak as the re sult of the existing rlvolutionary force . MAY BE A DECADE OFF. He said: “I expect something of the kind about tho end or the present century, say iu ten years. Society is just now dorman , like a river frozen in winter time, but homo night there will “be a mighty crack in th ice, and under the warming influence of the revolutionary forces there will boa mighty upheaving. T here will be no doubt a squall or two before that time, but the great event will not come, in my judgment, much sooner. Tbtro will be lot* of meu and women who will not be alive to see beyond the equal!, and they will think the ( DAILY. *!0 A YEAR. I i 6 CENTH A COPY V ( WEEKLY, $1 34 A YEAR I tim* has come.

At the conclusion of the argument* this evening Ju.lrfe Collin* at once charged tho jury. * jvery presumption,” said the ju ig •, “is in favor or tile prisoner.

BOND HOLDERS DEPRESSED. The bondholders feel depressed, and al* r< ady steps are being taken in some enun* ties by dissatisfied tax payers to invalidate the county bonds. At Camden to-day a meeting was held which denounced the county commissioners for ordering the election and issuing the hoods, and similar action will douhth ss be otkon in other counties. It is not improba ble that an effort will be made nt tbo present session of the legislature to transfer from the counties t*> the state the bonded debt issued in aid of rrulroari*. The effort has been made several t unes before, but without success. An effort will also be made at this Hussion to validate t be township bonds affected by the supreme court decision; with what success it is im possible to state.
