P11INCK KARL OTTO VOK BIfiMABCg. IiOllON, March 20. Prince Bismarck has resigned the chancellorship of the empire of Germany. It is claimed that the emperor has accepted the resigna tion. SURPRISING. The Popular Display of Regret at Bh mark's Resignation. The resignation of Prince Bismarck has caused a surprising popular display of regret at his withdrawal, and vener ation for the man, which is particularly unexpected, in view of the many evi dences of dislike which the majority of the lower classes have evinced toward him during the last ten years of his au tocratic career. Indeed it has teen difficult during the past few years to find a German in the lo..er walks of life who believed in Bis marck except as one of the chief ele ments of Uermany's power. All admit ted his greatness and applauded his suc cess, lor it meant the aggrandizement of the fatherland; but few admired the man and still fewer approved the meth ods he employed to achieve his pur poses. Now that it has become certain that he is no loneer the directing force of Germany's destinies; that the empire must rely upon some untried man to keep it intact and retain its prestige; that a stranger al the helm must hold to the course which the great chancellor marked for to swerve from it would re sult in disaster and that his name will no longer add convincing weight to Ger many's recommendations, suggestions and demands; the" full import of hla re-" tirement is realized and the inestimable value of his counsel and services is made plain. lhe common expressions ot dislike and distrust are heard no more. These have given way to expressions of regret and words of laudation. In the popular mind the ex-chancellor is a greater man than was the chancellor. The feeling of perfect national security which liiH di rection ot atlairs gave to every uernian is fast growing into a feeling of uncer tainty. Austrians fear a rupture of the triple alliance, and the Normans fear they know not what, but the old feeling of confidence has been shaken. The Cologne Gazette says that Bis marck, during the old emperor's reign, got a notion that he was the real sov ereign, but the present emperor on as cending the throne showed an intention of asserting his imperial rights. He showed that he had views of his own and consulted outsiders, a practice most odious to Bismarck, who thought his own voice onlv should lie heard. . He bluntly expressed his disapproval of the einperor's Socialist policy. lhe lagblatt attributes JJrince Bis- marck'B resignation entirely to the social legislation question. I he Austrian government, press and public greatly fear that the resignation of Prince Bismarck will lead to a rup ture of the jeaco alliance. BISMARCK'S SUCCESSOR. The Appolntiuent of General Von C'ap- rlvl Announced. Tho appointment of (ten. Van Caprivi as chancellor of the German empire to succeed Prince Bismarck is announced. EUROPEAN LABOR REFORMS. The Pope Prepared to Take the Lead Viider Certain Conditions. New York, March 20. The Herald prints the following from its Home cor respondent: Rome, March 18. I have tho author ity of the Vatican to announce that the popo would const ut to act its mediator through which tho simultaneous dis armament of European nations might be brought about. The question was put directly by your correspondent to night, and the answer w as equally di rect. Loo XI H has taken a bold stand. He holds that the existence of the im mense armies winch are draining the health of Europe and inflicting great sulfering upon the toiling masses is anti-Chrb-tian. Tho German emperor wrote an auto graph letter inviting the pope to send an ambassador to the Berlin lal or confer ence. In reply the pope tent an auto graph letter, saying lie could not take part unless his representative was given precedence over all delegates. Then the emjH'ior wrote another letter, urging the pope, in the interest of mankind, to take part in the conference so far as ho could, and at leant give his moral sup port. To this the KiiitifT has warmly re sponded. I am authorized to announce that the pope has wiitten documents dealing with the entire problem raised at Berlin. This has lieen diplomatically communicated to the papal nuncio in Germany, and will lie laid before the international con ference. There is no doubt that a great movement is on foot to give lhe pope a leading part in the effort to deal with the universal lalor troubles. His holi ness recognizes this as a great opiiort un ity for the church to put itself at the i head of lhe world-wide reform demand- j ed by organized lalior. He holds that the ' nations must adopt the principle of j Christianity, and that the church is the j only power competent to deal with the j tremendous issues involved in the social ; and industrial movement. ' Tho Herman emperor has frankly ad mitted that the governments cannot ac- j eompluii su unliau ortfaabcesl Christi- (fl -p$k anity comes to their aid. In thi3 crisis the pope has spoken in no uncertain voice, as will be seen when his address is made public. It is admitted that if the millions of- armed men who trample upon the bread trays of the poor were stripped of their uniforms and set to work creating wealth, a 1 great deal of the present mistress in turope would disappear. One nation dare not begin to disarm betore another, and the pope is now in a position to negotiate net ween the nations lor a general disarmament, Up to the present time the Vatican has managed to keep its negotiations with the German ambassador secret. GROWING BRIGHTER. The Outlook for the Striking Colliers of Great Hrltaln, The chances of the striking colliers for winning their fight with the owners are growing blighter every our, and it is now predicted that the etjiuggle will be over by the end of the veek. Never theless the masters will ruake a strong effort at the meeting of their committee with that of the 6tnkers to drive a hard bargain with the men, and this may pro long tne striKo into next ween. The men are more determined than ever not to accept a compromise, and the certainty that they will not be compelled to ao so is almost ansoiute, The demands of 1,800 striking col Hers at Sheffield were conceded by the owners Tuesday, miss example will great lv influence otherf owners and stimulate the men, whose chances of winning everywhere are now excellent. Fifteen thousand miners in Lanca shire, and many of the strikers in other districts, have resumed work on the terms of the compromise proposed by tne men.

The General Manager of the American and Mexican Investment Company Is Now In a Greaser Jail The Other Complainant Accuses the Nlcaraguau Government of Doing 111m Wrong. Washington, March 30. Congress man Mason, of Chicago, has a constitu ent who is a political prisoner in Mexi co. He is Charles W. Zaremba, a resi dent director and general manager of the American and Mexican Investment company, a company wliich is operating in Mexico under an Illinois charter. Mr. Zaremba is now in jail at New Laredo, Mex., on a charge of having been en gaged in the illegal extradition of one Latmer, alias hite. Latraer was in the employ of the Mex ican Central railroad as a freight con ductor, m and was formerly connected with the yueeu and Crescent route, run ning from Cincinnati to New Orleans. Latmer was one of several persons who were suspected of having roblted the Queen and Crescent route wdiile in their employe. Mr. Mat. W. Pinkerton, who was in the employ of the Queen and Crescent, undertook to secure possession of the person of Latmer. To aid him in his operations in Mexico he employed Col. Zaremba as an interpreter. The officials of the Mexican Central railroad, when informed of the sus picions under which one of their em ployed rested, were evidently quite anxious to get rid of him, and apparent ly co-operated in getting Latmer to the border, where in some way, which is not altogether clear, lie was taken across the Iwrdor into the United States, and is understood now to be in the possession of the United States authorities. Pinker ton secured the assistance of the local police authorities of the locality in which Latmer was first arrested, and by aid of tho railroad authorities appears to have been transported to the northern border. Latmer was arrested by Mexican offi cers, left in thoir custody, transported north by Mexican escort having instruc tions from the local Police authorities, who were advised to deliver Latmer to the corresponding authorities of tho frontier. Col. Zaremba was charged by the Mexican authoriti. with having been a party to this alleged illegal ex tradition, and is now in jail. Mr. ZarcmhVa Letter. These facts make more clear perhaps the following letter w hich Congressman Mason has received: Nkw Larkho, Mox., I - -.. March 10, l0. . , Hon. William E. Mason, M. C, Washington, 1). C. : My Dear Sir- I beg louvo to hand you by bearnr, my stepson, Eaiil C. Becker, a statement of my case which, on its merits, pleads for the imm.xU.ite anl decisive inter ference of the department ot state. Ever bince Jan. 25 I have bisn a prisoner, and, so to spjak, kept to shield soul) Mexican oil! - cials from not only not infringing their own National constitution, acta of congress, penal code anil regulations of tho supreme court, but also international law and comity, ff not human rights. Although I have in re spectful tonus and proper form petitioned for liberty on bail, which is conceded to any federal prison ir by Mexican National legis lation of Nov. !), isf'.l, much more ao, whon on a bed of sioknesi and torture with the neuralgic suiutica, as certified to by two re liable physicians, neither has such appli cation Ixwn grantl nor even the dis trict attorney, acting for the state, been apprum of the causa ot im prisonment, for tho very reason I suppose that tho district judge of New Laredo, who ordored my ari-ost on suspicion of illegal ex tradition, had ma arrested for an offense un known to tho penal coda of Mexico. From tho fcgirmiug to this day the judge has acted arbitraily and against the laws of his own country, and while thus being left in his power, I have no other remedy than to apply to my governni Mit through you for my speedy liberation. Our consul general here, us well as our minister in Mexico, the Hon. Thomas Ryan, know all the facts in the case from the very beginning, and had the department of state informed of my affair somo timo ago, but I hnve not seen any effect of such information. Hoping and praying that, with your well known activ ity, you will call for the effective interfer ence of the department of state in my be half, and assuring you of my highest per sonal esteem and consideration, 1 am ever your very obedient servant, Dr. CHARLES W. ZAHEMBA. Dr. Zaremba has sent a long state ment to Congressman Mason, which the latt.T wnl at once present to tne state department. The facts contained in the statement are sufficiently set forth in the foregoing. He concludes lus statement as follows: "I have been serving the Mexican gov ernment for eleven years, voluntarily delivering lectures in the United States and Kiirojie about the resources of Mex ico, establishing trade relations lietween the United States and Mexico and Eu rope, and when Mexico was attacked I defended it wherever the opportunity offered. "Many capitalists have come to Mex ico on my recommendation and invested their capital, and I myself have written testimonials to the president, ministers and governors of states, ai d proved my self a disinherited friend of Mexico. I have served the government since 1883 as special agent for the minister of pub lic works, and al wv.it three months ago was appointed commissioner general or the railroads and industries of the Mex ican republic without pny or gratifica tion of anv kind, except this, a cell in jail."
