Prompt Diplomatic Action Wards Off a Movement Towards War. Eismarek Is Scheming 1 to Draw Spain Into the New Compact. Emperor William Enthusias tically Appreciative of His Reception in England. BebuN, Aug. 10. — Among the first fortunate fruits of England's attacn ment to the triple alliance are the ces sation of the Servo-Bulgarian war preparations and the simultaneous sus pension of the Cretan rising. The swiftness of the combined diplomatic action of England, Germany, Austria and Italy upon the Cretan question, as propounded by the Greek note to the powers, is the result of a previous un derstanding of the powers with Turkey on united action in the East. The Greek note, which threatened armed intervention in Crete, inspired as it ■was by Russia, met with a decisive response from the four powers within two days. There is nothing in modern history like it for rapidity of diplomatic action, with a straightforward assertion of a delinite policy. The porte, in a circular note received here to night, issued under the concert of the four powers, repudiates the charges of the Greek note that Turkish misrule is solely responsible for the Cretan insurrection. It asserts that the reforms demanded by the Christians have been readily granted, and that the people would remain peaceful if they were not incited by Greek agitators. The porte's response does not allude to the leading point of the arrangement on which the four powers depend for the settlement of the Cretan troubles, namely: That a Christian governor with a mixed Christian and Moslem council, elected by the people, shall constitule tin) government after the present troubles are over. A semi official article in the Journal de St. l'etersbourg adniits that the prompti tude of the decision of the powers has prevented the movement from assuming proportions which would menace TUE PEACE OF EUROPE, and that the Servian government's abandonment of the muster en masse of all the reserves is as certainly due to the influence of Prince Bismarck's league of peace. Only a portion of the reserves is now ordered out for formal inspection. These diplomatic successes inspire the foreign otlice here with brighter hopes of drawing Spain into the league. The Italian government, having better relations with the Spanish than has Germany, has been entrusted vyith the carrying on of the negotia tions at Madrid, and sends Sgr. Cialdini as special envoy. If Sgr. Cialdini suc ceeds in perfecting an arrangement similar to that with England, Prince Bismarck will have so ringed France with a circle of powers hostile to a war ot revanche as to guaran tee permanent peace and a proba ble reduction of the armaments. The reported intention of Empeior William and the empress to visit Mad rid, though denied by some Spanish pa pers, is a definite project associated With overtures for an understanding. It the present plans are carried out, Emperor William will go in the impe rial yacht to Lisbon in September and thence to Madrid. Emperor William and Prince Henry arrived at Wilhelm haven this afternoon and immediately proceeded by special train to Berlin. Prince and Princess Bismarck came to Wilhelm's Strasse from Varzin to night. The emperor's impressions of England, as freely made known through his mother, the ex-empress, are enthusiastically appreciative. Writing to his mother from Osborne house, after the naval review at Spithead, the em peror described the magnificent view of the line of English war-ships ten miles long passing before him, as a surprising proot of the tremendous STRENGTH OF GBEAT BRITAIN, conveying new Ideas oi her preponder ance of power throughout the world. The emperor's sojourn at Osborne has certainly tended to renew the friend ships previously existing between the members of the two royal families. Queen Victoria sent a telegram to the ex-empress describing the happiness Bhe experienced from her grandson's presence, and the warmth of feeling he showed toward herself and her chil dren. The ex-empress, in responding, thanked her mother for the good news, which she received with deep joy. The visit of the Prince of Wales to Berlin, which is arranged for the end of Sep tember, will seal the renewal of family cordiality. Tho empress came to-day from Potsdam, and Princess Henry, with her baby, from Darm stadt, to meet their husbands here. Emperor Joseph's arrival is timed for Monday at sp. m. The ceremonial of his reception will be similar to that of King Humbert's, although he has asked on account of his recent affliction, a very quiet welcome. Under den Lin den will be decorated in the style usual on the occasion of a monarch's entry into the city. Popular curiosity is not excited over the visit, public interest being centered in the czar's coming, which is now fixed lor the eoth inst. The burgomaster applied to the foreign pffice f<ir advice as to how to prepare for the czar's visit, lie was told that it was doubtful it' the czar would enter Berlin, although he would stay four days at Potsdam. liis morbid dread of" facing a crowd prevents a visit to the capitol. The programme for the visit is subject to alterations, de pending upon the police reports regard- Ing the safety of the various routes. According to the present arrangements, the Kussian imperial family will leave the Peterhof palace on board the Der lava on the 24th, reaching Stettin on the following day. The czarina and her children will proceed thence to Copen hagen, while tho czar, accompanied by Emperor William, will come to Pots dam, where reviews and state banquets will be held. The czar will afterward go by rail to Karl to witness a naval re view. From there he will go to Copen iiacen. MMBERSOF RUSSIAX DETECTIA'ES have already been stationed at Berlin, Stettin and Potsdam. Officials of the Kussian embassy assert that the czar in tends to hold a limited reception at the embassy, and the lavish preparations that are being made confirm the state ment. Workmen are engaged day and night in decorating the interior of the building. The Kreuz Zeitung, referring to the statement of Gen. Bouianger that he used the secret fund to buy the right to inspect the papers of the mil itary attache of the German legation, says that Col, Yillaume, while attache SXJITDJLir JISSXJB. - _________ at Paris, caught a clerk In the act of copying documer.'.s. This is the only foundation of Ueu. Boulanger's story.' The Imperial budget discloses a deficit of 20,000,000 marks. This is chiefly due to the decline in the yield from the reformed sugar taxes, which is 24,000,000 marks under the estimates. The reformed taxes burden the domes tic sugar consumption with 20,000,000 marks without limiting the export bounty system. The coming budget will be further burdened with 8,000,000 marks to alter cannons for the use of 6inokeless powder. Delegates from IG3 mines met at Bochum to-day and de cided to send representatives to the Silesian mines to arrange for concerted action. The authorities disfavor a coali tion, but the prospect promises to suc ceed. The chiefs of the Bavarian So oialists have called a general assembly at Nuremberg to organize for the elec toral campaign. -«»» CAUGHT IX THE ACT. The Festive Train Robber Fares JJadly in Arkansas.

Lamberton, one of the most promi nent men of Minnesota, died at his home in this city this morning of heart disease. Mr. Lamberton was for many years a member of the- Democratic cen tral committee of Minnesota, was once a candidate for secretary of state on tne Democratic ticket aud for a year was managing editor of the old St. Paul Pioneer. He was a brother of H. W. Lamberton. of Winona. The funeral will be held on Monday. Mr. Lamberton was born in Pennsyl vania, and came West when a compara tively young man. He was a brother of 11. W. Lamberton, of Winona. Other brothers are R. A. Lamberton, presi dent of Lehigh university, Bethlehem, Pa., and C. L. Lamberton, an at lived for a time at several points in Mianesota, finally settling at St. Peter, wheie he kept a large general store and accumulated a considerable property. He devoted himself to this business un til the St. Peter fire a year or two ago, since which time he had not en gaged in active business, leaving that in the hands of his son. Mr, Lamberton was a prominent Demo crat, aud was a familiar figure at state conventions. He was an intimate friend of Kelly and Doran, and hia youngest son is named after the former. Robert T. Lamberton, of Winona, is the only child by his first wife. Two sons, Charles and Kelly, now at St. Peter,were born of the later marriage. Mr. Lamberton lived in Winona a short time during his early years in the West. He was a blunt, outspoken mau, whose chief characteristic, which he will always be remembered by all who came in contact with him, was his sturdy honesty. His integrity was the first of all. Nothing could shake his unflinching honesty. Scores of anecdotes representing this feature will occur to all who knew him. Outside of his own relatives, perhaps no man will feel his death more than P. H. Kelly. He was Kelly's right hand man, and the former never took an important move, it Is said, without consulting A. J. Lamberton. Some two years ago, when Mr. Lamberton was very sick, Kelly was at his bedside night and day. SECTARIAN SPEECHES. They Are Indulged in by Wash ington Stateraakers. Oltmpia, W.

'TWAS NIP AND TUCK. The St. Pauls Win the Junior Double at Lake Cal umet. Pilkington and Nagle Take the Double Scull Cham pionship by Default. Lovell and Dennis Donahue Do Some Very Discredit able Work. One Played With Pool Sellers and the Other Prepared to Foul" Pullman. 111., Aug. 10.— Four thou sand persons were present to-day at the closing races of the Lake Calumet re gatta. New York again carried off the honors, the Atalantas proving victors over the Torontos in the senior four oared shell race. Denis Donahue, of Hamilton, Ont., also added to his laurels by his rowing in the senior singles. Bright skies and smooth water made the conclusion of the regatta as pleasant as the opening had been disagreeable. The first event of the day was to be the row off of a tie race be tween the Baysides, of Toronto, and the Metropolitans, of New York. Pilkington and Nagle of the Metropoli tans are the champion double scullers for the ensuing year. The champion ship went by default, John Gray, the bow oarsman of the Bay Side.crew, which rowed a dead heat with the Mets yesterday, being unable to leave his bed. The fiasco closed the programme of the national regatta and the remain der of the day's events were under the auspices of the Mississippi Valley asso ciation. Much to the surprise of those tiiat witnessed his magnificent perform ance of yesterday, Lovell, of the Nauti lus, allowed himself to be beaten In the juniors to-day by Shea, of the Cres cer.ts, of Boston. In the hurried inves tigation that followed the race it was ciearly developed that Lovell HAD BEEN TOLD NOT TO WIN by the Canadian crowd that has been manipulating the pool-box. It played Shea, and will take home a big pile of American dollars that rightfully be longs to those who mit up on the Cana dian on account of the excellent form that he displayed yesterday. Referee Glover, of the national association, was successful in his efforts to stop this kind of business during the races under his supervision, and Referee Garfield, of the Mississippi Valley association, promises to have something to say if Lovell's name is presented again as a candidate for national honors. The other entries in the race were Avery, of the Unions; McKay, Argonauts; Gor mally, Torontos; Cregier (a son of Mayor Cregier), Quintards; Eveson, Modocs; Iliils, Ogden, and Frazier. Pullman. Lovell passed Shea no less than three" times, but the latter was al lowed to have everything his own way. His time was 11 :42>£; Lovell second in 11:51>£, Gormally close behind. The second race, junior double, starters: St. Paul, of St. Paul ; Owashtanoug, of Grand Rapids; Catlins, of Chicago; Min nesota, of St. Paul; Garfield Beach, of Salt Lake. The race was a pretty strug gle between the ST. PAULS ASD MINNEROTAS. The others were far in the rear. St. Paul turned first, but it was hid and tuck all the way back, the St. Pauls by a final spurt winning by two lengths. Time, 10:30%. Third race, senior four oared shells— Ouly the Torontos and the Atalantsis entered, and the power ful, steady work by which the New Yorkers left the Lostons in the lurch yesterday, accomplished the same re sult to-day with the Canadian crow. Throughout the contest the Atah n as pulled about an even 04-stroke to the minute, while the Torontos. starting with a ragged splashing 3i>-stroke, ex hausted themselves iv the first half of the race. TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE they turned the stake In the wrong direction and were disqualified. Never theless, the Canucks kept right after their opponents and the result is told in the time: Atlanias 9 :sß>a , Toronto 10. Fourth race, senior singles, starters: Metzger, of St. Louis; J. Donohue, of Toronto; Kilby, of Ottumwa; Kyan, of Toronto, Evesou, of St. Louis; Much more, of Minneapolis, McDowen, of Chicago: D. Donahue, of Toronto. Dennis Donahue also did some monkey work that will result in both himself and his brother Jerry and Ryan of the Torontos, being under surveillance for some time. He might have won with honor, but it was evident that he had fixed matters with Jerry and Kyan to run down anybody that, was likely to interfere with him. Ryan was success ful in getting into Kilby's water, but Jerry was unable to catch McDoweu, and with a little more exertion the latter might have taken the race. Dennis Donahue won by half a length iv If there is any royal road to wealth, the per sistent advertiser is the most likely to find it. It pays to advertise all the time. NO. 223. 10:48;<<, McDowen second, Kilby third, Jerry "Donohue fourth, Ryan fifth. Fifth, race, senior pair oared— Tne Detroits and the Garlield Beach club, of Salt Lake, Utah, had it all to themselves. They started evenly enough, but the Salt Lake boys had established a lead of four lengths at the turn. The Detroits neglected to make the circuit of the stake, and the Utah club PRACTICALLY STOPPED ROWING. It looked as though the Garfields' bow oar went to pieces, but their friends claim not, saying it was due to the foul by the Detroits. The Michigan crew finished in 10:55. The Garfields' time was 11:40, but they were declared win ners by the referee. Sixth race, senior double— Starters: Metropolitans, of I^ew Sork; Catlins, of Chicago; Syl vans, of Moline. The Sylvans were left three lengths in the rear at the outset, through misunderstanding with the starter, but made a magnificent fight, contesting every inch to the finish. They were too badly handi capped, however, to win, the Metropoli tans crossing the line first, two lengths before the Sylvans, who beat the Catllna by a similar distance. Time, 10:04. Seventh race, six-oared barges — Start ers: Pullmans, Iroquois, of Chicago; Westerns, of St. Louis. Such favorites were the Westerns that no money could be had against them. The Iro quois gave the St. Louis men a hot race, | finishing second by a short length. The Pullmans were a poor third. Time, 4:34><f. ELECTION OP OFFICERS.

The yacht race at Minnetonka yester* day was not a very successful one. Thfl breeze was too light. The Varuna won in the sloops and the Bonita in the cats, which gives both the championship foi the season, each having won thred races. When the start was made it was doubtful whether there would be a race, as the breeze was very slight. T.he Varuna made the course with threa minutes to spare. Twenty yachts start ed and but nine finished. Among the cats the Ida went on a reef, the Pearl pulled out and th© Silver Bell broke a halyard. The Kitten was the first to cross the line with the Mary Lee next and the Vareda third. There was a procession to the first buoy in Crystal, by the boats being right behind each other. At the buoy the Varuna took the lead and held it until the finish. The Valante waa second, lionita third and White Wings fourth. After turning the buoy the Avrora tacked into the lake, while the others hugged Orono. This put the Aurora out of the race. Before Point Lorrant was reached, the lionita was in second place, and she beat every boat in the fleet except the Va: una, and she wa3 only one minute behind her.

The Fortune Takes the Silver Cop in a Pretty Race. The race for a $50 silver cup, offered by the White Bear Yacht club, was sailed yestercl ay afternoon over the reg- Diar course of the club. The day was beautiful, with a fair wind, but hardly strong enough to fill the average yacht. n,a is heart with delight. Ten yachts were entered, and a very uretty race was had. Following were the entries: Ramaley's Lady Laura, Ramaley's Olena, Ramaley's Maui tou, Welsch's Fortuna, Leaman'a Nellie, Richards' Lucy, Coming's Mary Ann, Taylor's Margurette, Hen« ett'sZilica and another boat that had no name. Messrs. Gruudy, Uorton and Klots were the judges. It was one of the prettiest races ever sailed on the lake, even if it was not as fast as many of the captains would have desired. The Nellie did the finest and fastest sailing of the lot, and it was a wonder she did not win. She was the largest boat in the race, and was obliged to al low the others considerable time, which, no doubt, accounts for her taking sec ond place. The Fortuna was the first to cross the home line, and won the sil ver cup. Tba Nellie followed about a minulc sad a half later, gutting second, place. 'Xhc Manitou wa& third.
