SLOAN HAS NO FEAR.
The Deal in Coal Roads Is Still a Mooted Question as to Legality. H Lackawanna's President Has Confidence in the Advice of Counsel. Prices to Be Steadied and All Concerned Benefited by the Combine. Interstate Commissioners Not Likely to Interfere in the Matter. Xi • v, York, Feb. 13.— 0n Wall stree* but little faith seemed to be reposed in the reports of the alleged illegality of the recent coal ii,\i;. If there was any lack of faith in its legality it was not influential enough to force the prices down, as some people seemed to expect would be the ease. Sam Sloan, presi dent of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western road, was questioned today with reference to the alleged illegality of the deal and the resolution offered in the house of representatives by Mr. Stout requesting the committee on in terstate commerce to investigate it. Mr. Sloan said: "This road simply co-operates with the other roads in the movement and there is nothing illegal \\\ that any more than there would be in any Democrat co-operating with Mr. Stout in some political movement Ido not attach any importance to the rumors of the alleged illegality of the arrange ment. i have no doubt that before the arrangement was consummated the very best counsel available were consulted in the matter. Personally I have no doubt as to the legality of the transaction. "There is a point in this question which has not. i think, been considered. The maximum of production and the inaximum-of consumption are now so close together that this of itself would tend in a great measure to steady the price. It there were an excessive demand for coal now in the anthracite region I do not think it could be supplied. Why*.' Well, for the lack of labor for one thing. Labor in the anth racite region has i>, en pelting Jess ant less, because the miners have not had full work. The men have not been fully employed— have only averaged half a day's work all the year round— and mining labor has been reduced very much because of the curtailments from time to time, of the mining companies. The men have cone West. The result of this new agreement will be that work will be more uniform throughout the year, and both labor and capital will be better remunerated, while the consumer will not be required to pay any more than in the past." THE READING COUP. Interstate Commissioners Are Not Likely to Touch It. Washington-, Feb. 13.— Lawyers here «ay it will probably not be difficult to ilnd the necessary power to investigate the Reading deal, but there is no ground for the belief that the interstate commerce commission will interfere. Commissioner Morrison said this morn ing: "There is not the slightest proba bility that the interstate commerce com mission will have anything to do about the Reading deal. Nothing in the mere fact of a consolidation of interstate railroads, to whatever extent you choose, implies any conflict with the law which this commission was created to execute. Its requirements and pro hibitions could just as well be lived up to, if all the railroads in this country •were consolidated under one board of directors. There might be motives in such a consolidation the Reading's, which would contemplate violations of the law, but they would be merely an accident to the proposition of consolida tion. We know of no such motives on the part of the men who have made this particnla? combination." On the other hand members of con gress are in favor of an investigation and Representative Stout, of Michigan, lias already introduced a resolution pro tiding for such an inquiry. N. P. TO EXTEND.

San Fb — Mrs. Sharon Terry, who gained such notoriety by her divorce suit against ex-Senator Sharon and her subsequent marriage with Judge Terry, has become in sane over spiritualism. She has been very eccentric ever since Terry was shot down by Officer Nagle after. he slapped .Justice Field's face. The fact that the court held Nagle blameless drove her nearly insane. Mrs. Terry about three months ago came to this city and bought some articles at dry Roods stores. She claimed a few days later that her trunk had been robbed iv a lodging house where she hired a room, and she. enu merated silks and satins worth $7,000 that had disappeared. The case was tin own out of court and she was not heard from again until Thursday, when she came \ here from Stockton. She was placed by a friend in the house of Editor Cul berth. of the City Argus, and a nurse was hired to care tor her, as she seemed to be laboring under tremendous excite ment. Slit has now been two days in her room attended by Dr. Giliuore. The doctor says it is a clear case of de mentia, due to worry over her affairs and dabbling in spiritualism. —- CANADIAN PATERNALISM.

An Amazingly Mixed Tale of Chi nese War. Chicago, Feb. 13. -What seems to be either an elopement or abductiou of prominent New York Chinese is creating: a sensation in Chi cago Chinese circles. Hen Fonsr, a New Yorker. came to Chicago and wired Cow Kil. a Mott street cigar dealer, to come here at once. He did so, and during" his absence Lin Song, it is alleged, stole Chong Funs, Cow Kil's wife. It is thought by the New York detectives who are at work on the case that Lin Song and Cnong Fun? are living in Chicago together. Cow Kil purchased his wife in San Francisco some time ago. and he asserts that Lin Song, who is said to have abducted her, is a High binder, and that the whole proceeding, is a plot of the Highbinders to rum his business. *» CAUGHT THE KAISER. A German Deserter Freed on His Daughter's Plea. ATcnisox, Kan., Feb. 13.— Bernard J. S"hmitz, a well-to-do farmer of Atchi son county, went to Germany last No vember to visit his old home. Immedi ately upon his arrival he was arrested for deserting from the German army thirty years before. All efforts to se cure his release appeared to be fruit less. The anniversary of the emperor's birth came Jan. 27, and on that day the emperor received a letter from Schmitz's daughter, aged eleven, in this country, setting forth in a childish manner the facts in the case and asking for her father's release. The letter so touched the emperor that lie issued a pardon for the deserter, and he is now on his way home. — — -*^- ■ THEY WANT NO LOAN. ; World's Fair Directors Report to President Harrison.

'PARNELLITES SCORED John Redmond Anticipated a McCarthyite Move in Parliament. His Plea for Daly and Egan Caught the Other Faction Off Guard. Germans Rising in Protest Against the Sectarian Ed ucational Bill. An Italian Cardinal Certain to Succeed the Venerable Leo as Pope. LosPON, Feb. 13.— The McCaithyites are very much in the dumps over this week's experience in parliament. John E. Redmond, the Parnellite leader, stole a maivh of the.n with his motion for amnesty to the political prisoners. It is rumored that it had actually been arranged in the McCarthy meeting for organization that either Timothy Heal; or~ Thomas Sexton should spring this motion. The secret of this arrange ment was supposed to be secure, but it seemed to have leaked out and Red mond became aware of it, an incident which goes to show that all is not loy alty In the McCarthy faction. Red mond said nothing, but promptly seized the first opportunity to offer his motion as an amendment to the queen's ad dress. The McCarthyites alleged dan ger. Ten years ago such an appeal might have had a dangerous influence, but there ha* been a marvelous decline of religious bigotry ot late years, and it is probable that only a comparative minority, not enough to affect the gen eral result, will be moved by the '"old popery" cry. GERMANS UP IN PROTEST. The Education Bill Is Being Bit terly Opposed. Berlin, Feb. 13.— Protests against the sectarian primary education bill grow in number and in importance. The municipal authorities of Berlin by a vote of 95 to 14 adopted a petition to the landtag against the bill, and the burgomasters of the Rhenish towns have declined to protest against it. A great congress of the professors of Berlin, Halie, Bonn, Gottiugen and other uni versity towns ihas been convened here to pass an appeal to the government to. withdraw the ireasure. At Fran let ort-on-the-Main the teach ers have been disseminating fierce at tacks on the blli. quoting Prof. Vir cbow's phrase that ii is "a disgraceful aberration of the human intellect " These teachers have been warned that they will be put under the discipline of the law if they continue their aggres sive criticism. Public meeting have been held in every populous center in Prussia to protest against the bill, and even conservative districts are declar ing in favor of modifications. AN ITALIAN POPE Certain to Be Selected When Leo Dies. London. Feb. 13.— A dispatch from Rome states that the vote of the cardi nals taken by order of the pope, in the form of a question addressed to each, as to whether he preferred an Italian or a foreigner in the chair of St. Peter in the event of the pope's demise, has re suited in an early unanimous expression in favor of an Italian. In one or two instances preference was expressed for a German, the person evidently meant being the stalwart prelate, Paul Meleh ers. who, in the personal sacrifices and suffering he has endured, is the most heioie figure in the cardinals' college. But, as Meichers is dying, he is out of the field. The pope is said to be grati fied by the preference for an Italian, as he is himself strongly bent upon keep ing the holy see in close touch with the Italian people, to whom he hopefully looks for a revival of the temporal power. His holiness is gradually wast ing away. This is even admitted by the most sanguine. His mental strength is not weakened, and the lamp of intellect seems to burn all the more brightly as the grave approaches. But he is not very far from the end, although able to attend to ordinary affairs and not suffer ing from any particular disease. He himself recognizes his condition in as siduous preparation for the future- His holiness is considerably affected by the probable fatal illness of Cardi nals Meichers and Merit- i Hod, for both of whom he feels the warmest attach ment. It is said that the pope has with in a few days received assurances that there will be no attempt of any kind by the government to interfere in or in fluence the selection of his successor.) THE GERMAN NAVY. Emperor William Very Desirous of Adding to It. LoHDOir, Feb. 13.— Berlin advices are to the effect that the kaiser, who. how ever much he may talk of peace, be lieves iv no relaxation, is getting ready lor war. Work on the additions to the fleet is being pushed with great activity, and if the reichstag will consent Ger many will have a navy in the course of a few years able to rank very near to that or France. The kaiser is reported to have said that the next war would be conducted on seas as well as on land, and that Germany would not be driven from the ocean by a power she had van quished in the field. On the other haud there is a strong opposition in the reichstag to increase the naval appropriations. The social democrats are opposed on principle to expenditure in preparing for offensive warfare; but, added to these, the repre sentatives of Bavaria, and of South Ger many in general, are jealous of Prussia and they think they see in a formidable navy ouly a weapon for Prussian ag grandizement. Having no seaports or ocean commerce, they are not willing to pay for building up the commerce and prestige of the S'orth. In Mecklenburg- Strelitz and other states there is a deep antagonism to the house ofHohenzollern and the kaiser has been much dis turbed by the growing familiarity be tween Russia and some of the lesser German provinces. GEN. BOOTH'S DAY. Salvationists Turn Out Thickly in London. London*, Feb. 13. The great Salva tion Army parade today attracted spe cial attention because of its novelty. The streets were packed with sight seers and the crowd was such as is hardly ever seen except on the lord mayor's show days. Among the ban ner displayed were the flags of pretty nearly all nations, but the stars and stripes was most numerous of the foreign emblems. Gen. Booth, who looked bronzed and healthy, constantly bowed and waved his hat to the applauding crowds on the sidewalks as he passed along. After the parade, the streets remained full of Salvationists. The lads and lassies made a day of it and were the chief feature of London's life for the time be ing. They frequently gathered in groups to pray and sing for the edifica tion of curious throngs.

Some four years ago, among the let ters received by the ex-ameer of Cabul at Mussooria was one addressed to "Hi*, majesty,' King of Afghanistan," whicjjji ran nearly as follows, says.

The letter was made over to the English political' officer in charge of the ameer, .who" good-naturedly answered the letter, iti- 1 * closing a small collection of Cab-iil stamps.

The letter contained a photograph with the auto graph, "Yon Moltke, Field Marshal." The little German boy was the son of a well-known manufacturer who had been most liberal in providing benevolent in stitutions for workmen in Germany, and who was the field marshal's host during the maneuvers in the neighborhood of his DroDerty. — OPPRESSIVE RATES.

COAL CREEK FIGHTS. . 1 Catling Gun Turned on a Crowd of Shooters, Knoxville, Term., Feb. 13.— was learned here last evening that Thursday night a number of drunken men, thought to be miners, red upon the pickets of the state . troops at the Coal Creek convict camp. The Catling pun was turned on the men and two of them were crippled. Several houses in Coal Creek were filled with leadeu missies and the tenants were badly frightened. Commander Anderson has telegraphed | Gen. Carnes at Memphis for more am munition and arms. Five hundred miners did not work yesterday, but held a meeting to cele brate Lincoln's birthday. Some very fiery speeches were made, and the miners were told to defend themselves against the troops and put them off the, earth if any blood was shed. Crowds of men were seen among the hills in aud around Coal Creek last night, but the usual daylight quiet surrounds the situ ation today. There wa3 .no attack on the troops last night, but as many min ers are not working, and a few are drinking freely, it is feared trouble may occur tonight. One thing which has \:, caused conferences today was the proposition made by the Tennessee Mining company yester day, viz: To conduct the mine at Brieeville on the co-operative plan. The miners have not fully decided yet what they will do, but the . indications are that the offer will be accepted. It is said now that if the offer is not accepted the company will sell its property to the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railway company, the penitentiary lessees, who will put convicts to work. The state has the larger part of her standing army encamped on the hill at Coal Creek and the expense is heavy. It is certainly true that if the troops are withdrawn the convicts will be released again. s Corruption 111 Defined. Sacramento, Cal M Feb. 13.— The grand jury, in its report today, said that its investigation of rumored cor ruption in the election of United States senator to succeed Senator Hearst elicit ' ed some positive and damaging testi mony, but the preponderance of evi dence was so great that the jury was unable to find indictments in connec tion therewith. ; • ' ' ' . • - —■. ; Novel Money Making. f Toronto, Ont, Feb. 13.— Catharine Rhodes, a girl of eighteen, was arrested yesterday on a charge of uttering coun terfeit money.
