First Fruits of England's At
tachment to the Triple
Alliance.
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

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.

The Festive Train Robber Fares
JJadly in Arkansas.
Little Rock, Ark., Aug. 11.— At
12:10 this morning news reached here
of what is supposed to be an attempt at
train robbery,made to-night on the Iron
Mountain railroad one mile south of
Newport, Ark. Two men got on the train
there between the baggage car and
the smoker. A light ensued between
them and the baggagemaster, J. E.
Garrity, and the colored porter, Andy
Crittenden, in which the latter was
killed and the former wounded. One of
the men jumped from the train and
escaped, but the passengers and train
men, among whom waa a detect
ive, captured the murderer and
brought him to this city on
the train arriving a little after mid
night. He gives his name as D. A.
Whitlield, of Baxter county, this state.
He is about twenty-one yea;s old. He
says he and his partner, Mike Mowlders,
who escaped, were out for some fun,
and were only trying to beat their way
when the light came up. Whittield
was heavily aimed, and his every ap
pearance shows the border desperado.

Pennsylvanians Robbed Right and
Left of Mail Matter.
Rkading, Pa., Aug. 10.— For the past
tew days Inspector Bayard, of the post
office, has been investigating the great
losses of mail matter recently suf
fered by merchants of this city aud
neighborhood. Some business houses,
it is said, lost from ten to forty letters
in the mails which reached here from
Tsew York, Philadelphia and the West.
These losses have been so enormous

Atlanta, Ga., Aug. 10.— Patrick Cal
houn, general counsel for the West
Point Terminal road, and J.D. William
son, president of the Chattanooga, Rome
& Carroll ton road, fought a duel at
Hokes's Blulf, ou the Coosa river, this
evening, in which Calhouu wounded
Williamson in the right arm. The
trouble grew out of Williamson de
nouncing a statement made by Calhouu
before a legislative committee as false.
Cant. Harry Jackson, of Atlanta, was
Calhoun's second, and Capt. Jack King,
of Home, was Williamson's second.
Lateu— The reports from the field of
battle show that Williamson was not
touched by Calhoun's ball. Williamson
fired five times quickly, while Calhoun
rested on the first shot. Calhoun then
demanded an apology again, which
Williamson gave, and the duel was
over.
The dueling ground was pitched
about 200 feet over the Georgia line in
Alabama, on the Rome & Decatur road.
Twelve paces were stepped off when at
the signal Mr. Williamson fired his five
barrels in rapid succession and Mr.
Calhoun fired one, whereupon Mr. Cal
houn again demanded an apology.
After consultation an understanding
was reached, when Mr. Calhoun fired
the remaining barrels in the air and the
parties separated. By direction of Gov.
Gordon, several efforts were made to
arrest the parties before the affair, but
all were unsuccessful.

A Millionaire Mill Owner Coni-
mits a Double Murder.
Frankfort, Mich., Aug. 10.— A ter
rible encounter occurred at Otter Creek,
twenty miles north of Frankfort,
this morning, in which Charles T.
Wright, president of the Otter
Creek Lumber company, of Racine,
Wis., shot and instantly killed
Under Sheriff Neal Marshall and Dr.
Frank E. Thurber. It seems that
Wright had not paid the taxes on his
mill property at Aral Lake township
for several years, and had a suit with
the township in regard to it. About
three weeks ago the sheriff at
tached a large lot of logs.
Wright tried to replevin them,
but could not get the proper
bonds and his mill lay idle for want of
logs to cut. It is thought that Wright,
with a torce of men, attempted to gain
possession, and in the melee Supervisor
Thurber was killed first and Marshall
soon after. It is rumored that over
sixty men were engaged in the fray
and there may have been others
wounded. Sheriff Marshall was a brother
in-law to Lewis Sands, the millionaire
lumberman of Manistee. The propeller
Dewar, with a force of officers and a
picked company of men, are leaving for
Otter Creek to capture Wright dead or
alive. It is said that the barge Sey
mour, owned by Wright, has taken him
on board aud departed for the Wiscon
sin shore.

Greensbukg, Pa., Aug. 10.— A riot
occurred at the Hecla works, owned by

of Policeman Fryer, were ar
rested in this city this afternoon.
THEY GAVE THEMSELVES UP.
Chicago, Aug. 10.— Two young men
quietly walked into the Deering street
station this afternoon. One of them re
marked: "I understand you fellows
want us. My name is McGrath, and
this bloke is Martell." The sergeant in
charge ot the station leaped from his
place behind the desk and took hold of
the two men.
"Oh, you need not grab us in that
manner," said the young fellow who
had first spoken. "We came here to
give ourselves up. We hear you want
us for the murder of Officer Freyer, and
here we are." Though catechised
closely, the prisoners deuied emphatic
ally that they had anything to do with
the brutal killing of the policeman.
They will probably receive a course of
treatment in tho "sweat box," but as
they have, if guilty, had time to concoct
a good story, the chances of a confession
are slight.

JIMTOWN'S FOOLISH KICK.
It Fails to Cause a Ripple of Ex-

Bismarck, Dak., Aug. 10.— It is quiet
in the city. With the exception of the
members of the committee on revision
and adjustment none of the delegates
are here, most of them having gone
home Thursday night. The committee
on revision is making good progress,
and will be prepared to report a com
plete revised constitution to the con
vention on Tuesday next, after which
day the session will not Jast many days.
President Fancher and Delegate Camp,
of Jamestown, returned to-day, having
been home to attend what a few of
Jamestown's politicians and real estate
dealers intended for an~ indigna
tion meeting over the location of
the public institutions. Fancher and
Camp, who voted for the location, re
turn with their scalps, and cannot dis
guise their pleasure at the sentiment of
the meeting. Disinterested men who
were at the meeting state that instead
of indignation the meeting was vir
tually favorable to the location of the
institution, 'and as soon as it was ex
pkiiued that Jamestown neve*— had a
show of winning the capitol, only re
ceiving nineteen of the seventy-five
votes, the applause with which the re
marks of the delegates were received
was deafening. There will be very lit
tle excitement during the remainder of
the session, as all the knotty questions
have been disposed of. No material
changes are being made by the commit
tee on revision, its labors being con
fined to grammatical construction and
proper succession of the various arti
cles.

St. Cloud, Minn., Aug. 10.— Efforts
are being made to have the sentence of
Arthur Makepiece, who was convicted
of forgery a year ago, commuted.
Makepiece created a sensation at the
time of his incarceration here by being
married to a young woman who had
been employed as a waitress at a hotel
just prior to his trial. After his com
mtttal to the state prison his wife went
to reside with Makepiece's parents, at
Charles City, 10. C. A. Slocum, of that
city, is now here, armed with a petition
from the citizens of Charles City, and
has also obtained a letter signed by
judge Searle, ex-County Attorney Cal
houn, and County Attorney Taylor, of
this city, recommending a commutation
of the sentence to live years, which he
will present to Gov.Merriam Monday.
PIERCE NEED NOT PAY.
Close of a County War in North
Dakota.
Special to the Globe.
Devil's Lake, N. D., Aug. 10.— Col.
A» D. Thomas and E. A. Maglone came
in from St. John to-day, where they ap
p«ared as attorneys for Pierce county in
the case of Kollette county vs. Pierce
county to recover $7,100 for ten
townships taken from Rollette when
Pjerce county was created by act of the
legislature. The court dismissed the
suit on the ground that Rolletie county
couldn't maintain an action, if at all,
umil it had paid its indebtedness, part
of which was claimed from Pierce. This
ca^e has been watched with much inter
est, and it is thought it is ended, as goou
lawyers claim the provision requiring
Pierce county to pay its proportionate
share of Kollette county's debt is in
vajid. being special legislation, which is
prohibited by act of congress. The
court did not rule on the latter proposi
tion.
DEATH OF A. J. LAMBERTON.
Demise of a Leading Minnesota
Politician.
Special to the Globe.
St. Petki;, Mina., Aug. 10.— Hon. A.
J. 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.

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

by the Canadian crowd that has been

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

Mayor Cregier), Quintards; Eveson,

than three" times, but the latter was al

His time was 11 :42>£; Lovell second in

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

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,

Pullmans were a poor third. Time,

VARUNA AND BONITA.
The Pair Take the Championships
at Minnetonka.
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.

SAILING AT WHITE BEAR.
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.
