[Copyrishti 1890, by New York Associated Press.l
BERLIN, May 24.-Negotiations with
England concerning the territory in Af
rica had almost reached the part of ex
change of protocol, conceding to Germany
a sphere of influence extending from the
east coast to the Congo free state, when
Lord Salisbury, the British prime mini
ter, sent his envoy, Sir Percy Anderson,
emphatic orders to suspend communica
tion and await instructions. Since then, e
Sir Edward Malet, British ambassador at
Berlin, has intimated that negotiations
will only be resumed on the basis of the
recognition by Germany of English rights
on the west of Tnaltlyilkle territories,
north of Tanganyika.
The North Geiman Gazette, whose di
rectors recently had several interviews
with Chancellor Von Caprivi, obtained
eem.offilctal communicatzons adverting to I
tI he contianance of English ccupation of
Egypt as essential to perpetsltyof that
I contry. The article obviously pointed
I odt that the German government was
ready to sapper tpermanent ocupation of
Egypt~bythe British. The Gazette did
not state the terms, but sl.geq d that if
Germnsy obtained t hold in the district
in Cental Africa claimed by England,
the British claim would be collanmed in
-ooplttbmdnf Egypt, Ineluding Nyanda.
The foreign office has interpreted the
h chaged, attitude of Lord Salisblry to
Spblic fear common in England over the
threatened dispossession of England from
the territories connectiag the British em
pire n South Africa with the s mes of
the Nile. Whatever is Lord Salisbury's
a motive it has brouSght out an energetic
J protest from Chancellar Von Ceprivt,
which the Emperor either inspired or or
dered. Only atdong statemeet,combined
with family reasons, determined the Em
p peror to persist in his cordial relations
with the English government.

the start but the most urgent orders were J

after opening became possessed with the

selling today but whether this was for the

People will miss the familiar face of
Judge Douglass, who, it is understood,
will not return for some time. He has
probably gone to Helena or Livingston,
or the Pacific slope. He is a good trav
eler, having even visited France and
England. He likes epicurean fare and
is quite likely to settle only where he
can have fruits and meats in variety and
abundance. The judge has a good mem
ory. It goes back to the days of Nevada
and Alder Gulch; to the doings of Plum
mer and Iyes and to the governorship of
General Meagher, who came in the full
zenith of his military fame to link his
name with the history of the young terri
tory and lnose his life no te swift-flowing
Missouri, which never gave up the re
mains of the gallant soldier and brilliant
orator. Judge Douglass could also re
call Helena's palmiest days and had clear
recollections of the John Dean tragedy
In which it was shrouded and may re
main shrouded until the final court of
assize shall bring to light who killed the
wealthy liquor dealer.
While his memory linked him thus
with the past Judge Douglass lived also
in the present. He has keen judgment
on the value of property and probably
never lost a dollar on real estate deals,
In this town at least he must have made

lie prefetrd''gllt edge" real estate to all
other investment. He did not care to
increase his wealth by money lending and
dlsliked banks probably because of the
heavy losses which 'wild cat" enterprises
a.oted before the national bank system
brought uniform currency and greater
security. • -
Judge Douglass is a steady reader of
bWtper and the best magazines. He
ilahas controversy. He holds Robert
"sgersoll in great respect and doubtless
eapposees that be s a match for the pow
