—ln the Franco-Prussian war the
generalship of the Germans lay in mas
sing larger bodies of troops in each
light than the French had at that spot
to oppose them. At Weissenberg 44,000
Germans and 72 guns were against 4,500
French and 18 guns; at Woerth, 92,000
Germans and 342 guns were against
36,800 French and 131 guns; at Spich
eren 38,400 Germans and 121 guns were
against 24,000 French and 70 guns; at
.Sedan 155,000 Germans and 700 guns
were against 90,000 French and 408 guns.
The punishment inflicted by the French
on the Germans was something more
than terrific—exceeding that received
by a very considerable per cent. It was
the last great war where modern killing
implements were used. Since tber. the
improvement has simply been marvel
ous so that flesh and blood cannot stand
the destructive war agents at command
of nations, The science of man has
rendered war one of the remotest pos

lord feels it bis duty to drench his and
contiguous lands in the blood of men
more useful than be.

and the New York court holds the in

A New York court knows what its

In German he keeps up a constant re
frain, “sie ich nitch geetonhen!” and
“Fritz het nitch gestorben !” He has a
great head of brains, and he knows
what hell was to him without dying.
It is the saddest picture in all prison

most unatural crime. Death would be
the sweetest boon that could come to
the demented old Fritz.
—Fred Paulkes, of the Cedar ltapids

more to the Democracy, in his mis
representations of Hutchinson,than all
the Bourbon Democratic candidates in
lowa. It was a dandy lot of misrepre
sentation, and the reward, in the way
of cash consideration by way of the
consulate, is not out of the way. It is
a pleasure to see that those contracts
are now being kept. “Business is busi
ness you know,” if it does knock Dem
ocratic boys over the fence.
That Sugar Trice.
Referring to the statement going the
rounds of the press, and printed in The
Herald, with regard to the recent ac
tion of the wholesale grocers of lowa
on sugar, our representatiye interview
ed Mr. A. P. Spencer, secretary of the
11. L. Spencer Co., of this city, who said
“It is not true that any effort is be
ing made to set aside and control any
certain territory for each or for any
jobber within the state of lowa. It is
not true either that any effort has been
or is being made to make a lixed price
for sugar, regardless of market changes
or competition. It may be proper,how
ever, to state in this connection, that
the association of the wholesale grocers
of lowa at a recent meeting in Des
Moines, did take steps to put in opera
tion what is known throughout the
country, as the “Equality Plan”, for the
sale of sugar, which is l rased on the re
liners jobbing price of sugar in New
York, adding a through rate of freight
to any retail town in the state, thus
making a delivered price to each retail
dealer, the price changing according to
the fluctuations of the market, or
changes in freight rates. There are no
restrictions whatever, as to territory,
but on the contrary, the doors were
never thrown more widely open; the
jobbers in the United States being at
liberty to compete fos the trade where
ever they may choose to go. This
“Equality Plan” is in successful opera
tion at the present time in about 16
different states of the union, with half
a dozen others preparing plans for its
adoption in the near future. It is
popular with the jobber, the retailer
and consumer, for the reason that the
plan is based on the fundamental prin
ciples of equity, honor and justice as
between the wholesale dealer and retail
dealer, and without injustice to the con
sumer. What more could be asked or
expected? No effort, whatever, has
been made towards consolidation or
combination of capital or to secure an
unreasonable profit on the great com
modity of sugar, which comprises about
25 per cent of the volume of business
transacted by the wholesale grocers of
the United States. Instead of shutting
out competition, it may be proper to
state that the competition is so strong
that on the present market value of
sugar, granulated is being handled to
day at a loss of M 6 of a cent per pound,
or 25 cents per barrel. If some arrange
ments could be in effect by which the
jobber could make 1-16 profit, they
would be content, and we are sura that
the retailer, the consumer and the pub
lic generally,? would not regard this as
extravagant or unreasonable,”

Grand Demonstration at Chicago in
Honor of Emperor William.
The Anniversary of His Accession to
the Throne Fittingly Observed
—A Magnificent Parade.
Chicago, June 16. —Chicago has wit
nessed the grandest German demonstra
tion ever seen in this country. When
it was decided, tw’o weeks ago, to ob
serve Thursday, June 15, the anniver
sary of the accession of Kaiser Wil
helm 11., as German day at the world’s
fair, the associated German societies of
Chicago took the matter up and soon
proclaimed their intention of making a
preliminary parade down town that
would eclipse anything of the kind ever
before attempted in America.
The Ui|( Parade.
Soon after daylight the down-town
streets began to be thronged with Ger
man-Amerieans in holiday attire. Soon
the blare of trumpets and the thud of
drums were heard in the streets and
German societies, each headed by its
own brass band, began to move to
wards the rendezvous on Michigan
avenue. They came thicker and fast
er as the morning grew apace and an
hour before the great parade started,
at 10 o’clock, over a hundred socie
ties were already in line await
ing the word to move. Twenty more
arrived before the start was made and
when Chief Marshal Frank Wenter
gave the word to move, it is estimated
that there were fully 30,000 men under
his command.
There were many magnificent floats
in the parade, contributed by various
societies, and each of them was greeted
with resounding cheers by the multi
tudes that crowded the sidewalks along
every inch of the line of march.
Soeletiea in the Parade.
Among the organizations which
turned out in practically full strength
for the parade were the following
Turner societies: Chicago Turnge
meinde, Aurora, National, Garfield, Ger
mania, Grand Crossing, Vorwaerts Cen
tral, Lincoln, Northwest, Union and
Fortscliritt. The singing societies of
Chicago were also fully represented,
the following being among those
in line: Germanic, Frohsinn, Or
pheus, Harmonie Mannerchor, North
Chicago, World’s Fair Chorus, Friend
ship, Lake View, South Side,
A l ion, Fidelia, oHarugari Sangerbund
Gesangverein Harmonie, Sennefelder
Liederkranz, Kreutzer Quartette club,
Teutonic Junger. In the parade
there were also many gayly-uniformed
societies, among them being the Ger
man Order of Harugari, Order of Har
mann’s Sons, Order of Druids, I’ythians,
Knights and Ladies of Honor, Order of
Chosen Friends, Catholic Foresters, In
dependent Order of Red Men and a
number of miscellaneous German socie
Taken altogether, it was a grand
demonstration of the strength of the
German element in Chicago, and the
pageant was one well worth traveling
many miles to see. The allegorica
floats had all been prepared with great
care. Several of them had cost hun
dreds of dollars and they formed a
striking feature of the parade.
OIT for Jackson Park
As fast as the marching societies
reached the Lake Front after travers
ing- the line of march they were dis
banded, and the members proceed
ed independently to Jackson park.
The arrangements made by the
transportation companies were perfect,
and, although they were called upon to
handle 100,000 t people inside of two
hours, nobody experienced any delay,
and the big undertaking was fulfilled
without a hitch.
At the German Building.
The celebration of the day at Jack
son park was begun in front of the
German building at 2:80 o’clock
in the presence of an immense
concourse of people. The building
loomed up grandly in the background,
and special platforms had been built
for the accommodation of the speak
ers and singers. They were handsonw
ly decorated with German and Amer
ican colors. Von Bulow's orchestra
from the Trocadero opened the jro
grainme with C. M. Von Weber’s “Juhal |
Overture,” and Prof. Kntzenliergw’a
children’s,ladies and-male choruses then
joined in singing “Deutschland Überi
Alles.” Then came the formal greeting
of the German-Americans to repre
sentatives of Germany, delivered by
Harry Ilubens, who was introduced:by
President E. G. lialleof the celebration
committee. “Ole \WM «m wiw

rendered by the orchestra and massed
choruses under Director H. von Oppen,
and an eloquent response to Herr Ru
bens’ greeting was made by Baron
von Hollenben, the German min
ister to Washington. Hon. Carl
Schurz followed with a “festive
address” on the Germans in America
and the participation of Germany in
the world’s fair, and the Maennerchor,

SUIT INVOLVING 85,000,000.
Harvester Manufacturers Charged with
Infringing an Kastern Man’s Patent.
New Haven, Conn., June 16.—Pro
ceedings in a suit for which more than
$5,000,000 profits and damages will be
asked have just been started by J.
G. Richardson, the well-known reap
er and harvester expert of this
city. The suit will involve nearly all
the leading reaper and havestvr manu
facturers in the United States, includ
ing the combine and such well-known
firms as McCormick A Co., of Chicago,
Champion company of Springfield, 111.,
and the Wood reaper works. In order
to make a test case suit has first been
brought against B. M. Osborne & Co.,
of Auburn, in the United States district
court for the northern district of
New York. The complaint sets up
that this company and others have for
a number of years been engaged in
manufacturing harvesters on which a
device is used the essentials of which
the complainant holds letters of patent
for. The complainant has been pre
paring his case for more than nine
years, and eight years ago the several
manufacturers were notified that they
were infringing. They acknowledged
the notice but continued.

The Body of Her man Schaffner, the Miss
ing Chicago Banker, Recovered.
Chicago, June 16. —The belief that
Herman Schaffner, the missing banker,
had been drotvned in Lake Michigan
was found to be correct Wednesday.
About S o’clock in the afternoon
Charles- L. Riehtler, who was fish
ing on a pier at the foot of
Greenwood avenue, near the Marine
hospital, saw the body of apnan floating
near the shore. Richter fastened the
hook of his line in the man's clothing
and drew the remains ash«>re. As soon
as he saw the features of the
dead man he at once recognized them
as those of Schaffner. The police were
immediately notified and were soon on
the spot. Dnerythinfcr about the find
ing of the body, the police say, points
to the suicide theory, and they be
lieve that was the man
who engaged the rorwboat Jane 3
and never returned. The body
was badly bloated and decompo
sition had set in. The remains were
removed to Sigmund's morgue, being
taken to an undertaker’s, establishment
later on, where they were identified by
friends. It is believed that Schaffner’s
mind became unbalanced through
worry ower the financial situation.

Largp Currenoy Shipments Drain-
ing New York Banks.
Wall Street Financiers Are Worried
Over the Fact—Secretary Morton
on the Situation.
New Yore, June 16.—The shipment
of currency to the west and south by
New York city banks was continued
Wednesday and excited much comment
in financial circles. The amount sent
out yesterday was estimated at more
than 11,000,000, and another 11,000,000
was ordered to-day. When asked as to
the cause for this large shipment of
currency, which is mainly to
the west (the amount sent out within
the last ten days is believed to exceed
$14,000,000), bankers agreed in saying
that the demand was largely due to tho
distrust prevailing everywhere in this
country, and especially in the west,
where there have been a great many
failures both of banks and commercial
Draining New York Hunk*.
The stringency of the money market
is being experienced at both ends of the
line now. The savings banks, as well
as other banks out west, are all fortify
ing themselves as much as possible, and
that, especially in the case of the coun
try savings banks, is causing a hoard
ing of money in those places and
a consequent drain upon the
banks of New York city. As a result
of this many New York banks
are being compelled to call in loans in
order to maintain their lawful re
serve. Their lines of discount and
time loans are practically fixed so that
they cannot be disturbed, and so they
have no alternative but to ask for pay
ment of their call loans in case their
maturities do not meet their daily
needs. The sending forward of wheat,
it is believed, will only account for a
very small part of the demand for cur
rency from the west.
Effect on Trade.
As an indication of how this mon
etary stringency is affecting trade in
all its ramifications it was reported on
Wall street that three large mercantile
houses in Chicago were endeavoring to
get extensions in this city from
wholesale houses of which they
had bought goods. Another indi
cation of the stringency is the fact
that a large mercantile house in this
city of, first-class credit and abundant
assets had to pay 12 per cent, for exten
sion to tide it over a tight place. The
lack of buying is also reported to be
one of the unfavorable conditions
noticed by large wholesale houses in
this ci/ty, and it is generally attributed
to the curtailments of credits, the bad
state of affairs in the west, and gener
ally to the money stringency and lack
of confidence.
Treasury Gold Increasing.
Washington, June 16.—The treasury
gold is being built up by the deposit in
New Y’ork of gold certificates in ex
change for currency orders in the west.
The demand for money in the west
still continues and through this ex
change the treasury is receiving gold at
the same time it is accommodating the
New York banks in placing cur
rency at western points. The net gold
in the treasury at the close of business
was $92,138,815, an ineftase of nearly
$1,000,000 over the day before and an
increase of more than $2,000,000 during
the w eek.
Shipping Wheat Instead of Gold.
Secretary Morton has an explanation
for the improvememt in the financial
situation. He said:
“It would seem that we have reached the
price at which foreign markets will purchase
our wheat, and it is now going abroad. Instead
therefore, of gold shipments there will be ex
changes for cereals and the financial problem
will be easier.”
Adverse Trade IBalance In May.
Washington, June 16. —The adverse
balance of trakle during May almost
bears out the recent prediction that the
amount would drop from $24, 04*0,000 in
April to $10,0(10,000 in May. The ex
ports for May have advanced to $69,-
473,752 and the imports have fsillen to
$79,438,795. The indications are that
the figures for June will be no worse
than those of June, 1892, when
the adverse balance was a little
more than $7,000,000. The figures
for May, show an adverse balance
of $1,007,308. The total exports for
five months ending May 31 last were
$320,217,801 and the imports were $420,-
414,292, showing an adverse balance of
$96,196,491, or an average of about $19,-
000,000 per month. The excess of gold
exports over imports during May was
$15,202,092, makifig the excess for the
five months ending May 31 $60,252*693
and for eleven months $85,801,251.
This change in the balance of
trade, so that it is less hostile
to this country, is expected to
have an important effect} in reducing
gold shipments and relieving the treas
ury from embarrassment. The grow
ing demand for American breadstuffs
in Europe and the fact that Great
Britain appears to have unloaded a
large part at her surplus stock of cheap
goods even encourages the belief that
the balance of trade in June will be in
favor of this country instead of against
it, and that gold balances may return
here from Europe.

It is the smallest and youngest com-

•/Effects of the Prevailing: Financial Strin
gency—Condition of Trade.
New York, June 19. —The weekly re
view of trade says.
••Concerted action by the banks of New York
has changed the situation materially. More fail
ures and a tremendous drain of money to the
west had such effect here that the banks were
unanimous in deciding upon the issue of clearing
house certificates. Much increased accommoda
tions for the business community are expected
to result and doubtless will, unless speculation
Is stimulated to absorb all the increase in avail
able resources through undue preference for
marketable securitities over other assets. The
weakness of banks at many western points con
tinues. The widespread stringency is having a
serious effect upon merchants and manufactur
ers who are in no way concerned with specula
tive operations.
••A very sharp fall in foreign exchange re
moves the chance of gold export at present, but
it is due to foreign purchases of securities
rather than to a change in trade balances. Ex
ports in two weeks of June, it is true, are but
12,700,000, or 16 per cent of last year’s, and im
ports show a small decrease in place of the
enormous increase reported for months, but
balances are still adverse and likely to be for
some time.
“The decline in prices has led to some in
crease in the foreign demand for products, but
has been followed during the last week by an
advance of more than a cent in wheat, with
sales of only 27,000,000 bushels; 2% cents in corn
and 3 16 of a cent in cotton, with sales of 900,000
bales. Pork has fallen 50 cents, oats (4 cent,
coffee % cent and oil a cent, but any material
increase in exports at this season must come
from marketing the surplus of cotton and
wheat carried over, and this the advance in
prices tends to prevent.
“Reports from other cities nearly all show
tight money and slow collections. Trade at
Cleveland is fairly good and at Cincinnati quiet
At Detroit trade is quiet and credits closely
scanned, and at Indianapolis there is a better
feeling. Chicago reports an easier financial
situation, but western demands are urgent,
collections very slow, speculation lim
ited in volume, building 50 per cent
smaller* than last year, wholesale trade
fairly satisfactory and retail trade improved.
Milwaukee reports confidence slowly return
ing. At St. Paul excellent crop prospects
make a more hopeful feeling and at Omaha
trade is good, at Kansas City fair, at St Jo
seph fair. At St Louis trade is beyond antici
pations. At all southern points trade is slow
and quiet
Failures during the last week have num
bered 313 in the United States, against 153 last
During the week ended yesterday leading
clearing houses in the United States reported
exchanges amounting to 11,031,364,527, against
11,156,384,853 the previous week. As compared
with the corresponding week of 1892 the de
crease was 9.6.
Inhabitant* of Midway Vlal»ance March
Through Jackson Park.
Chicago, June 19. —At 2 p. m. a most
novel procession left Midway Plaisance
and proceeded on a parade through
Jackson park proper. It was headed by
two companies of United States troops
and the cadets of the Orchard Lake
(Mich.) military academy. Three brass
bands helped to swell the medly of
Bound that arose from the wonderful
collection of musical instrumental!) the
rest of the parade. More than 1,000
men, women and children and hundreds
of goats, camels, donkeys, elephant*,
lions, monkeys and other animals
were in line. Following the soldiers
came the Turkish village people—the
members of the Bedouin encampment,
ladies of the harem, the theatrical
troupe, fire-engine company, all the
sedan-chair carriers with their chairs,
employes of the Cafe Chantant,
merchants, sword-fighters and finally
all the camels and horses in the vil
lage. The Algerian village turned out
seventy-five people, eunuchs, sooth
sayers, dancing girls and slaves, and
the Vienna bakery sent its band. Cairo
street was depopulated for the time
being, its camels, donkeys, bab
oon, dancing girls, wedding pro
cession and fair being in line. The
cathedral of St. Peter sent its four Swiss
guards in full uniform. The Ferris
wheel employes are now uniformed
and turned out in a body. The Java
folks brought everything they had
in the village. The fine orchestra
from the theater played along the
route, and the blowpipe and long
bow bearers showed what they can do
with their weapons. Next came the
South Sea islanders. With the excep
tion of the Dahomeyans, they are the
strongest specimens of humanity on the
grounds. The International Dress
and Costume company, with its forty
young ladies was accommodated in
ten carriages, preceded by two high
landers and bag pipes. The German
village sent two bands; did Vienna, ita
band, and Manager Grieesor of the Vi
enna cafe brought his gypfey orchestra.
Last came the Amazons from Dahomey,
equipped in full war costume, every
one of them hideously scarred from the
many conflict* in which they have en
gaged. A native band marched with
them. It is expected that thi* parade
will be repeated at invetvala of a week
or so.

and murderous advice which she finally
took in despair.
