BISMARCK IS SULKY.
Serious Divergence of Views Between the Chancellor and Kaiser William. The Emperor Demonstrates That He Is Running the German Empire. Bismarck's Strange Reticence Embarrasses Government Candidates. Socialists Continue to Play Lone Hands, Staggering Their Opponents. Bi lu.iN-, Feb. L — Daily Incidents strengthen the impression that there is a serious divergence of views between Prince Bismarck and the emperor, or those having the immediate confidence <>i the emperor, upon the proper course of the government in some important internal concerns. The prince's objec tion to the ton<> of the speech from the throne has b<-en commented on for some days. The fact that the objectionable part was the reference to labor troubles, and that Herr yon Berlepsch has been appointed to a place in the ministry.glv- Ing him control of those things pructi eally in place of Bismarck, seems .to imply that the emperor intends that those things shall be put in the hands of one in sympathy with the ideas set forth in the speech. Within these few days the emperor has received success ively all tho leaders of the different groups included in the Cartel coalition, and be is in conference every day with some prominent member of the govern ment groups, having a free interchange of views and communicating his own ideas on tho proper management of the elections. There is a very great con trast between his APPARENT SELF-EFFACEMENT and his actual activity: and a yet greater contrast between his demeanor and that of Prince Bismarck, who, though he has accorded interviews, on request, to Herr yon Peunlngsen, Prince Schoetfaich-Carolath and others, has, nevertheless, maintained a singular ret icence as to the policy to be pursued in the elections. His silence em barrasses the government candidates as to the ground they shall take in their campaign fuliuinalioiis, and the prince has been asked to seize the first occasion to make such a state ment as would give to the candidates a keynote for their programmes. Lie was even specifically asked to take this lead in the lower house of the Prussian diet. He returned to this request an indefi nite response, which left the impression that be would make a declaration upon the eve of adjournment at a conference of the Cartellers. In the landtag to-day it was announced that the chancellor did not intend to address the house. All this adds to the conviction that there is a difference of opinion in high places on internal policy, and suggests more over, that the difference is ot a seri ous nature. In consequence of this statement it was decided to adjourn the diet on the 11 th inst. until the 23d. when the elections will be over, and in the meantime to make another efi'ort to induce the chancellor to give a char note that should serve as a rally ing cry to the supporters of the govern meir.. The National Zeitung does not give any insight into the intentions of the government. It only continues to proclaim the solidity of the Caitel com bination, and to predict that there will ultimately be a full agreement between the government and the National-Liber als on the ixrn.sioN of the socialists, but it avoids formulating any electoral platform, indicating apparently that its inspiration is only the let t-over thunder supplied while the debate was going on in the reichstag. and that it has made the suggestions applicable to the actual situation of things. Prince B smarek's letter to Ilerr yon Nchloezer, the Ger man ambassador to the Vatican, is pub lished obviously to influence the opinions of Catholic voters. It declares that the government sees with pleasure the establishment of Catholic missions in German colonies, promises that all religious orders shall lie admitted, in cluding the Jesuits, and that all may rest assured of the protection of Germany. Cardinal Itampolla has responded, expressing the extreme satisfaction of the pope at this step, and making his congratulations ■upon this further advance toward com plete concord. The. .appointment of Yon Berlepsch to be minister of commerce and mines is regarded by many as an electoral ruse intended to catch for gov ernment candidates the votes of min ers pleased with the fancy that the gov ernment is ready to do great things for them— to make a law that will reduce the hours ot labor, increase wages and generally protect the workingmen. This-attempt at conciliation costs the government but little, and indicates mainly an endeavor to modify the. Cath olic opposition and draw workingmen with hopes away from the magnetic agitators of the socialists. Forecasts of the results of the elections are gener ally to the effect that the German Con servatives, the Reichspartei and the Center party will remain nearly intact; that the German liberals will lose sev eral seats, which will go to the Social ists. The National Liberals. AIIE IN THE 6BEATEST DANGER, as it is thought they will lose twenty five seats. The socialists hope to in crease their strength from eleven in the last reichstag to forty-two in the next, gaining six from the German Liberals and twenty-live from the National Lib erals. Overtures were madi- by Heir Eugene Kichter and other leaders of the German Liberals to the socialists upon the proposition to act in concert and agree that the National Libeials should support a socialist where the combina tion might then defeat a government candidate, and that the socialists should support a National Liberal in sonic other place where the scheme would apply. This sound political theory was not favored by the so cialists, who preferred to work by themselves everywhere with out relation to doubtful allies. The now reichstag is convoked for the middle of March. It is likely to present a formidable phalanx of socialists, who, combining with the Center party and the German Liberals, will easily out vote the government groups. The foi etgn office regards the agreement be tween the Germans and Czechs in Bo hemia as a triumph for the diplomacy of l'rince Bismarck and the personal influ ence of Emperor William. Incessant efforts have been made by Prince Bis marck, through the Prince de Keuss, the German ambassador at Vienna, to induce Emperor Francis Joseph to adopt a policy that should tend to re cover for the Germaus the greater share in the government of the Austrian em pire. The semi-official declaration of the facts nut forth from Vienna admits that the foreign policy of the empire weighed with the emperor as the main consideration in the case; that it was NECESSAIIY TO END KACE QUARRELS to enable Austria to stand on an equality with her alPes in the triple al liance and be respected by Russia as a soundly-constituted great power. In consequence of the German triumph in Bohemia a meeting of the emperors is Diojected at Breslau. Emperor Francis Joseph promises to be present at the army maneuvers around Liegnitz when Emperor William has his head quarters at Breslau. Among the press comments on the Samoan treaty there appears in the Frankfurt Zeitung a no table criticism on the adverse reception ©f the treaty by a section of the Ameri can press. The Zeitung wonders that any American paper could express dis satisfaction, seeing . that . the United States obtained everything it could desire. The Zeitung has songht in vain to discover any good ground of discontent or any fair reason for these utterances, and concludes that the only possible motive for them is opposition to Mr. Blame, and an opposition that is not to be softened ■ whatever, he may achieve. Col. Staffers pam pier, on a Franco-German alliance, excites the greatest interest. The Kolnishe Zei tung says the idea that Germany would buy peace from France by a cession of the imperial provinces ot Alsace and Lorraine is the merest chimera; that no generation of Germany will ever dare l cede an inch of German soil soaked with the blood of its fathers. The only value that.Stoffel's: argument lias, is in the fact that now while his countrymen in France are wild with Russomania, he warns them against the danger of Slavdom and the influence of a vast barbaric state in the councils of Eu rope. The Boisen Courier and the Na tional Zeitung consider, this point, and concurs thatStoffel's warning to France against . . AN ALLIANCE WITH CZA.RDOM will fall on deaf ears now, as did his warning in 1870 against the precipita tion of France unprepared into a great war. Emperor William will visit the Danish court at Fredensberg and re main there several days in June. ' The empress and her sister Marguerite will accompany him. The miners of Esch weiler, having threatened a renewal of the strike, the Nothberg miners took the initiative and . struck . yesterday. The master miners therefore decided \ that if the strike, extended they would close the mines. The leaders " of the men at once stopped the movement and the Nothbergers resumed and will not strike again until after the elec tions. Ex-Minister Yon Puttkamer is a candidate for Stolp, in Pomerania. In addressing a meeting of vot ers there, he said, he approved of the Conservatives voting against the social ist bill as it finally came before the reichstag, because that law, without the expulsion clause, was like a knife with out a blade. He thought there was no prospect that the new reichstag would be more amenable than the last one was to the views of the government; and that if the country- was forced to do without the socialist law, there was reason to fear that the minor state of siege would be replaced by the full ap plication of martial law. As a matter of principle, the socialist democracy must be denied the right of existence in any well ordered state. A THREE-COKNKRED COMBINE Establishment of One More Through Line to the Seaboard. Special to the Glob?. Chicago, Feb. I.— Chairman Walker, of the Interstate Commerce Railway association to-day rendered a decision which legalizes the establishment of another through line from the West to the seaboard. The Hues forming the new route are the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha, the Minneapo lis, St. Paul & Sault Ste Marie and the Canadian Pacific, and it has been in operation for some time toa limited ex tent. The decision was rendered on an appeal from a disagreement of the man agers on the application of the Omaha road to establish the same through i rates on West bound business from Boston and com mon points to the Missouri river and beyond as are made via the . lowest dif ferential line either by way of Chicago or the Mississippi river." Chairman Walker manifestly hesitated to decide in favor of the Omaha road, but con cludes: "I see no escape from the con clusion that justice to the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway company requires that its proposition should be authorized, and it is so award ed." The Chicago lines are much dis gruntled at this unavoidable decision, a? every pound of freight shipped over the new route is exactly that much lost to the Chicago roads. -v- * . CUT IN FREIGHT RATES. The Burlington's Latest Break Feazes Its Competitors. Chicago. Feb. I.— General Freight Agent Uamblin, of the Chicago, Burlington & Northern railroad, to day gave notice of a cut in freight rates between Chicago and St. Paul to old rates ot 40 cents a hundred pounds, first-class. The notice caused something of a sensation by reason of the lack of any previous warning. Mr. Hamblin takes the ground that when his company consented to adopt the 60-cent scale of rates at the urg ent request of competitors, it was with a desire to give the advance a fair trial. Out that since then there have been a number of reductions made by the other Hues. The <>0-cent rate was made to protect chiefly the interests of companies having branches in lowa. The Burlington & Northern has no lines in that state, and proposes now to look out for itself, regardless of the effect produced in lowa. THE GREAT NORTHERN. All Employes, for the Present, Will .serve as Usual. General Manager Mohlcr, of the Great Northern railway, yesterday issued the necessary circulars addressed to all em ployes of the newly-formed system, to continue to servo in their various ca pacities until further notice. The cir culars read : "Ail officers and employes of the operating, traffic, engineering, general supply and gen eral stores department will, until timber no tice, perform their present duties as hereto fore, under the existing rules." President Minot, of the Eastern Min nesota, has announced that after Feb.' 1 he will vacate the general manager's chair in favor of General Manager Mohler. No radical, changes in the of fices of any of the lines in the combine are anticipated. Curt Reply to a Governor. Chicago, Feb. I.— The letter of Gov.

CAN'T PULL TOGETHER Bickerings Among* Brazilian Republicans Develop Into a Cabinet Crisis. Minister of War Riberio - Re signs and Others Will Follow Suit. Blood Poisoning Is Sapping the Life Blood of Young Abe Lincoln. Lord Salisbury Preparing to Relinquish the Portfolio of Foreign Affairs. Rio De Jaxeiho, Feb. There is a ministerial crisis here. The trouble has reference to the questions of financial records, which do not at present seem likely to be realized. Seuor Riberio. the minister of agriculture, has resigned from . the cabinet, and a new appoint ment has been made. Senor Riberio was noi well known in Brazilian poli tics before he was ' called by Gen. De Fonseca to the ministry. The cabinet bad a meeting: which lasted until 2 o'clock this morning. After studying fully the subject which gave rise to the crisis the members of the government arrived at a perfectly harmonious de cision regarding the measures to be adopted. It is said that if Minister Riberio resigns, Francisco Grizerio will be appointed in Ins place. The follow ing letter is from Gaston De Orleans, Count a'Eu, to the minister or war of the republican government of Brazil: Your Excellency: I beg that you will accept the resignation I now pre sent of my position as comniander-in chief of the artillery, which I have held siuce 1865, and at the same time grant me permission to leave the country. My conscience assures me 1 always loy ally served the Brazilian nation to the extent of my ability, and that I endeav ored to be just to my subalterns. I take an affectionate leave of Brazil, as also of my fellow soldiers of • the Brazilian army. Were it not that circumstances against my will, and of which your ex cellency is aware, compel me to leave the country, 1 should be found ready to serve, under any form of government, this nation, which has received me as a native for so many years, conferred honors on me, and evinced towards me a feeling which 1 shall never forget, and the prosperity of which I shall always sincerely desire.

Pasama, Jan. 23.— Dr. Holguin, the president of Colombia, publishes an ad dress to the citizens in which, after ex pressing pleasure that the past year has been marked by peace, order and gen eral advancement he says: "Notwith standing the enormous deficit of up ward of $0,000,000 which estimated re ceipts and expenditures show, it is satisfactory to note that an easy condition of affairs is observable owing to the correctness which has been observed in receipts and expendi tures, the economy which has been ob served, and the suppression of j various expenditures. We have been able to pay otf all the important debts incurred for public account, and to keep em ployes paid up to date. Our export and import trade has considerably increased, due to the higher rates paid abroad for out products, to the discovery of new mines, and to the improved methods of working them, to the increase observa ble in all branches of industry, and. above all, to the increased confidence now felt that peace will prevail for many years. At the same time roads are being opened, steamers traverse the Lebriji and afford means of transport for the department of Sautander, while cocoa and coffee plantations are being formed, imports have so increased that we have not the means to transport all the merchandise; the Zipaquira rail road has been commenced; the Sabana railroad now reaches to Bogota; water works have been built in several cities, electric wires place the towns and cities in communication, and electric light illuminates several cities. I may also mention that the many new houses which nave been built in the capital — where elegance and comfort are now everywhere visible — the large sums which are handled by the banks, the high and well sustained value of the paper money, are all matters tending to give ail idea of the increase of public wealth and the confidence the govern ment has been able to inspire." SALISBURY IS WORN OUT. Exactions of Public Duties Tell Upon the Premier. Loxdo>\ Feb. 1. — Lord Salisbury has yielded to the political pressure brought upon him, and abandoned his proposed trip to the continent for the present at least. His health is very poor, and it is believed that at the cabinet council which is to be held within a few days he will pave the way for his early resignation from the foreign office, the recent exactions of which have told heavily upon his physical and vital resources. Specula tion is rife as to the cabinet changes which will result from his withdrawal from the foreign department, but nothing worthy of serious acceptance is evolved from the labors of the self-constituted slate- a leers whose vaticinations are as varied as they are absurd. The Marquis of Hartington will take his departure for Egypt on Friday, to be absent indeli nately. He has rallied . somewhat from tho shattered state in which his recent illness left him, but is still greatly in need of the change he seeks. He has deputized Sir Henry James to act as the parliamentary leader, of the Unionists in his absence, and instructed him to consult with Mr. Chamberlain upon questions of great importance. The measure of Mr. Chamberlain's ac quiescence in this arrangement is not slated. Parnell Is Still Lender. ■ London, Feb. I.— The impending charge of Capt. O'Shea will not prevent Mr. Parnell from taking part in the de bates on the queen's speech, and he. will still be recognized as the leader of his party. At no time has the accept ance of Mr. Parnell as leader been more absolute than since the Pigott incident made him look in the eves of the Eng lish Liberal electorate like the victim of a long-continued and gross injustice. Cannot Be Convicted. London, Feb. I.— The trial of Eight Rev. Edward King, bishop of Lincoln, on charges of having violated certain requirements of the ritual of the Estab lished church, will begin before the ecclesiastical court next Tuesday.

I.— Ex-In- j spector John Bonfield, the famous Chicago detective, in an interview this evening with Editor Dougal, of trie Deseret News (Mormon), replied! to the charges that there was a Mormon plot to implicate the Liberal (anti-Mor mon) leaders through detectives in a variety of scandals and thereby befeat] the Liberal party in the coming election i in Salt Lake City. Capt. Bonfield said: . "1 came here Incugnitio last November at the instance of gentlemen j tvho feared that the frauds at the Ogden city election would be re peated here. I was requested to do nothing more than obt. in proofs of election frauds. Conversing with Lib erals or anti-Mormons they admitted that the people's party or Mormons had a majority of legal voters, but they claimed to ' have the register courts, the . election judges, the returning boards, etc.. in the Liberal interest, and meant to carry the election. I detailed detectives to obtain evidence ot fraud. One of them furnishing false informa tion, I discharged. He went over to the Liberals, and is illegally registered as a voter. Indisputable facts from other sources . show beyond doubt that the registrars hunted up and registered Liberals, but evaded the people's voters.- Two went by special train to the Col orado line and unlawfully registered gangs at railroads and way stations, turning many of the names over to an other registrar not on the train. Hun dreds of names of non-residents have been placed on the lists, many never taking the registration oath, and their residences being omitted to make legal objection difficult and prevent action to get the names stricken off." O'REILLiY'S BOORS RIGHT. The Treasurer of the League Duly Indorsed. Detroit, Mich., Feb. I.— The report of the auditing committee of the Irish National league has been made. After a preliminary statement the com mittee says: "We learn that the parliamentary party in Ireland- still refuses to call a national convention in America for reasons which . to them ap pear entirely satisfactory and the wis dom of of which your committee do not question. We found a model system of books kept by the treasurer. They con sisted of a cash book in which the daily receipts of money were entered, giving the name of the party remit ting, the name of the* organization (if any) raising the money, ana the date and name of the place from which the remittance came." The committee then goes on to say that the accounts and correspondence of the doctor were kept in a clear and orderly style, and that everything is in legal and proper shape. The .remittances to Ireland were . $237,248.08. In conclusion the report says: "We are led to say that, upon the score of economy and honesty, the league is to be congratulated on the admirable manner in which its finances have been administered by the Rev. Dr. Charles O'Reilly, to whom a deep debt of gratitude is duo for the onerous and responsible duties so faithfully dis charged by him. . >::. Holland's Youthful Princess. ;f t Paris Letter to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. | The heiress to the throne, of the Netherlands, the Princess Wilhelmina, is a few months past her ninth birth day. 1 As. the only queen regent of the future, ; she is a very interesting personage, the most important young lady tnat now figures in European politics. Young as she is, the question of her marriagejias already been mooted and widely discussed, aud it is probable that very few more years will pass over her childish head before she will be solemnly betrothed to some one or other of the many pretendants to her hand.

The secret of his se clusion is that Wilson is as indefat igable a student as if he had all his future yet to make.

He received from them nearly $30 in money, birds, chickens and eggs. STONED OUT OP A CEMETERY. Indignant Kentnckians Maul a Violater of Graves. ' Nicholasyille, Ky., Feb. I.—Ed mund Martin, the proprietor of the cemetery for colored people, has been selling lots . for . burial purposes for years. Recently the attorneys for the Richmond, Nicholasville, Irvine ' & Beattyville Railroad heeded * a strip of ground sixty-six feet wide through the cemetery for right of way, and Martin sold the ground occupied by the remains of sixty dead bodies without mention ing the sale to any of the owners of the lots. Martin began to remove the bod ies yesterday afternoon, hiring a dozen men to do the work. The news spread last night, and this morning the wor k . men .were met by an angry mob of men, women and children and stoned out • of the cemetery. For several hours Mar- 1 tin's life seemed in imminent danger. . The people refused an increased sum for the lots. : : ' ' };■;■ •■ . : . :•——.■ -■ " ?-■ 1 : Brown Faces His Creditors. ■ La Porte, Ind., Feb.

LEIiAND IS HONEST. Ex- President of the Sixth National Protects Depositors. .;- Xew York, . Feb. The following notice was posted on the window of the Sixth National bank at a quarter, to 12 o'clock: .: - ... : : - Mr. Leland has advanced funds sufficient to guarantee • payment of depositors in full, at as early a date as proper arrangements cau be made tor that purpose. :;■;_•. .1 ' A. B. nEPBTTKS, Examiner. President Edward King, of the Union Trust company, made , a statement this afternoon as follows: "I desire to state that, in my ; opinion, no one who knows Mr. I. eland could question his entire good faith and honesty of purpose in the matter of the sale of the stock. He feels; however, that |an error of judg ment was committed by him in not receiving ; sufficient . assurance as to the standing and capability of the persons to whom he sold, although at the time he did sell he had perfect faith that they were as represented to him, and that,therefore,tbrough this want of possible care on his part innocent par ties have been placed in position to suf fer loss. Hence as • A MAN OF INTEGRITY and honor he feels that it is proper for him to do all in his power to save them from the consequences of his act. He sent for me last evening and requested me to do what 1 could to assist him in effecting this object. The first thing to be done is to pay depositors in full, and this is in process of arrangement. Mr. Iceland has handed me a blank check to my order to be filled out for such amount as I deem necessary in order to guarantee the payment in full of the depositors of the bank, and, at the suggestion of Mr. Tapp man I have tilled it out for $500,000, and have deposited that sum in the Gallatin National bank as a guar antee to a syndicate . which has been formed to take the assets of the bank and to provide for immediate payment of depositors as soon as . the necessary formalities at Washington can be gone through with. There remains then the minority stockholders to be considered, and as I have said, Mr. Leland desires to do all that a sensitive man ot honor can do, and he has said he will be guided very largely by the advice of myself and other friends in relation to this matter, President Claassen, of the Sixth Na tional bank, failed to -procure bail to day, and was obliged to go to Ludlow street jail until Monday. Broker Pell's wife and sister offered to •go on Pell's bond, but the wife's property did not seem adequate, and the sister's property is in New Jersey, and therefore not ac ceptable in a New York court. Mr. PELI, WAS RETURNED TO JAIT., but it was said that his wife would be able to procure bail for him. The ex aminers have not made public any new facts they may have learned in regard to the Sixth National, the Lenox Hill or the Equitable banks. Chief Bank Ex aminer Cahill furnished the press to day with a statement of the affairs of the Equitable bank. The assets are 8151,000 commercial paper of uncertain value; 830,000 in Sixth National bank stock, of uncertain value, and a few minor items; total, $190,000. The lia bilities are: Deposits, $31,000; due to other banks, 196.000; cap ital, *■■ ?100.000, and a few other items; total, $333,000. The deficiency is therefore $143,000; but there is also cvi ence of a liability of $150,000 in cer tification which do not appear on the books. The examination is not yet complete. Examiner 11. C. Covell also issued a statement of the Lenox Hill bank. It shows total liabilities, $549, --292;'. total, assets. $370,675; deficincy, $178,017. Mr. Covell thinks depositors will get 70 per cent of their claims. Bank Examiner Preston says no for geries have yet been discovered in the investigation of the two banks. HOG PRODUCTS SCOKCHED. Disastrous Fire in a Kansas Pack ins House. .. :■;. :>' •■;,' EJUTSAS City. Feb. I.— A. disastrous fire occurred last night in the plant of the Kansas City Packing and Chase Re frigerator company in Kansas City, Kan. The fire started at midnight in the lard room of the hog killing build ing, from some cause unknown. Be fore it was discovered, the entire room was in flames and by the time the fire department arrived on the scene, the flames had communicated through the ceiling to the floor above and through the story below.
