FOR POLITICAL UHI9N
A Large Number of Canadians Wain to Join Uncle Sam's Domain. An Appeal to the Canadians cf the West by Elgin Myers. The British Empire Likened to an Overgrown, Lethar gic Kan, Whose Heart Is Too Weak to Propel Blood to His Ex tremities. Toronto. Out., April 2. —The move ment for political union with the United States is developing fast Almost every town in Ontario and Queoec has its political union association, through which an active propaganda is carried on. It is believed that the time has now air; when the Canadian resi dents in the United States should be asked to assist in the treat movement lor the unification of the Noitn Ameri can continent! An appeal to the Canadians of the West was issued last evening by Elgin Myers, one of the leaders of the political union* movement in. this province. Mr. Myers is the coun ty crown attorney of Dufferin county who was dismissed from his position by Sir Oliver Mowat. premier of Ontario, because of his refusal to repudiate his belief in the movement for polit ical union. Then follows the ad dress of Mr. Myers, which con tains nearly '2,000 words. After making an appeal to the Canadians who have prospered under the institutions of the L'ttited Stales, the address says: ••We are forced 10 rely on Great Brit ain tor our development, but, fort unately for us, that empire is in ilie po sition of \:\ overgrown man, whose heart is too small ami weak to propel the life blood to his extremities, which consequently wither and decay." Concerning the reeling for union Mr? Myers says: "As to the feeling in' favor of union among the masses of Canadians, it lias became so strong that the important problem now for solution is how to organize the sentiment into a fighting ami prevailing force against the political party organizations that al ways fight " any of the ques tions containing a disturbing element of unknown quantity. The United States in their civil war sacrificed throe billions of money and 1,000.000 of lives to preserve to the United States territory of but a fraction of the importance to them that Can ada is. ••The union would tor all time free the people of the United States from all dancer and menace of foreign wars. Canada, with a population which may in time reach ■ 25,00,0000 or JO.COJ, --000 of people, united with the rest lit the British empire, in alliance possibly with auother European , country jealous of America's suprem- ) acy, could, with its 4,000 miles of bound ary incapable of defense at all points, inflict untold injury on tin- United States, Should this occur, the people of tut' latter country would, when too late, realize the criminal folly of not having saved themselves from so great a calamity when they had the oppor tunity of doing so with but little effort." In closing the address Mr. Myers makes an argent and eloquent appeal to all native-born Canadians to help the annexation movement. LOOKS i.nu: ALLIANCE. — — ■—"-~~ llii- Brazilians Hobnobbing With the Chilians. New York, April 2.— The Herald's Valparaiso correspondent says: Com ment is being made upon the long visit to Chili of a leading ollicer cf the Bra zilian army. lie is here ostensibly studying the Chilian army tactics, but the cordiality with which lie lias been received, and the ease with which he pains information have led to Hie belief that his real mission is to sound the government on the subject of forming an alliance between Brazil and Chili in the event the farmer becomes involved in a war with Argen tina. A war with Argentina is not improbable, and is not far off, judging from the insolent atti tude, which the government of that re public has assumed toward Brazil. She has (riven aid to the revolutionists of Rio Oiande. do Snl and is imposing needless quarantine restriction! against Brazil. Ti;ese and other acts calcu lated to inflame the citizens of the two republics have not been without result. The war feeling in both countries is pronounced It is stated the Brazilian government is negotiating with the Ar mstrongs for the construction of warships of a type similar to the cruiser Ninth of July, which is being built lor Argen tina, and orders have also been made that greater haste be made in shipping the Mauser rifles for which Brazil re cently made contracts.

This morning 1,000 French Socialists, led by the mayor of Roubals and se\er*l town councilors, left the train amid the shouts of a crowd which surrounded the station, and m niched in a body to the convention hall. On all sides they were greeted with the cry, "Long live the revolution."

GIIEASE FOX GLWPOWDEIi. A New Explosive to Be Used in Germany. I>i:i:i.in, April •_'.— A commission of artillery experts has been testing for several days at the Jetterburg a new explosive which is intended to replace ultimately gunpowder in the German army. The explosive is a blown fatty substance of the consistency of frozen oil when exposed in ordinary tempera tures, it retains the consistency up to \l2 degrees Fahrenheit. A shock or a smirk does not set it off. When used in guns the explosion is obtained through contact witu another chemical com pound. The explosion i- almost unaccompadied by smoke, and the detonation is inconsiderable. Tnerecuil is very slight, even when the heaviest charges have been used. The 1 explosive does not heat the weapon suf ficiently to cause difficulties in the way vt rapid liring, and cartridges once used are easily reliiied. For the present rifle, model of l l^. the new compound is not available, but it luture tests be as satis factory as the recent ones, it will be in troduced generally in the artillery branch of the service. Four models of new army rifles, having many, advan tages over the rifle now in use, have passed successfully the trials of the small anus inspectors. The inventor of all tour is Dr. Weiss, of tne Geru dyna mite lactory. TO AHMs: 1O A. RMS I The Austrian Army to Be Largely Augmented. Vienna, April 2. -Despite repeated denials, it is certain that the war office plans shortly to increase, the force effective ot the Austrian army. • While the project to introduce generally the two-year term and thus raise the actual strength of the standing army to o:M,0J0 has been postponed indefinitely, the government has decided uot to re- Imquisii entirely some of its features.

The idea that the comedians of the stage, and it is a popular and prevalent belief, have all the recreation aud diversion in the plays that they produce necessary to satiate their penchant for amusements and pastimes is a shabby fallacy. These same merrymakers who excite the fun-loving audience to a state that approxiina es ecstacy are <>s much given to the seductive influences of the very-day amusements that entertain the lay mortals ot the world ai are other people. This inherent attribute is not absent in the personnel of the Ali liaba Extravaganza company, and this after noon the mule members of the organiza tion will begin a second billiard tourna ment at Foley's. A year ago their first tourney was played here. It was a pro nounced and enjoyable success, and the players believe that they can profit by the experience of last season, and pos sibly improve upon the amenities. Play will begin at 2 o'clock, and some eight frames will mark the day's prog ress. To complete the tournament the present week as it will have to be, from eight to Dine games a day will be played. There will be forty-live games in the series, if all the entry finish, in asmuch as one name was added t« the list yesterday, making ten in all. F. J. McCarthy's name is posted in large green letters on the bulletin at Foley's as the 'manager, and this is eminently tit, for one would have to travel many miles to find a more congenial spirit or I better qualified to conduct upon events i convivial than he.

Important Bearings of the Money Market Upon Com merce. A Goneral Easing Up of the Commercial Situa tion. Intelligent Discussion of the Situation by Mer chants. Trade showed considerable improve ment during tho briirht days of tho past week. The wholesale houses, generally speaking, report substantial additions to their files of orders, and the manu facturers are busy on goods for im mediate delivery, as well as for the future business. The more the. jobbers look into the situation the more do they find that buyers are disposed to be conservative and to keep their affairs on ■ substan tial footing. The course is wise in view Of the unremunerativo returns from the leading grain product, In the numerous portions of the Northwest where di versified farming is pursued the busi ness condition is excellent. Compared with one week ago, wheat is % cent lower for May at TtH cents, and % cent higher for July at li}i cents per bushel. On March 39 the May op tion went up to 83X cents, took the phenomenal fall of 7 cents in sevtwi minutes, and sold as low as 74 4 cents. The reactions from these declines in dicate that the bull interest still holds a large lino for May. May pork declined 51.40 and July pork $1.30 pet barrel daring the week, and live hogs now threaten to go down to C cents. " . Occasional ripples of financial talk in the East keep floating westward. Among these, on the question of bonds, Haiuuleton* Co., of Baltimore, said: "In our opinion a policy of selling bonds for the purpose of raisins gold— in other words, using one's credit to sus tain one's credit— would be very in judicious, and the remedy would be worse than the disease. As a tempo rary expedient such a policy might be tolerated, but it is indefensible, and we may depend upon it nothing short of a repeal of the silver act of 1890 will cure the evil." Daring the early part of the week the dtspatclies showed some anxiety on the part of Wall street operators, who feared that money would again loan at ab normal rates in New York before the Ist of April. That probably limited their, speculations. Money remained comparatively easy, however, except on one day, when the demands from the New England states forced rates to a premium for a time, but only a short time, however. ' The Milwaukee & St. Paul, Omaha & Northwestern roads on March 23 paid their interest doe April 1. It has not been a general custom for railroads to pay before the due date. . . •• The Railway Age estimates that there is surveyed or projected 87,785 miles of railway. A considerable portion of the mileage to be built during the year is in the timber ana iron regions of North ern Minnesota. » : ' ■ The Equipment Guide, discussing as to whether or not there is general short age ot freight cars, claims that there me, generally speaking, cars enough, but that they are not handled to ad vantage. It holds that the present average performance of twenty-four miles per day can be increased to fifty miles per day, and it recommends the extension of the car service or clearing house systems o* handling freight cars. New freight cars built were, in IS9J, 103.000; in 1891, 93,700; In 1893, 200. While the Northwestern lumbermen have had a splendid log cut, with lum ber selling readily at good prices, and while the Canadian timber market is healthy at 50 cents to #2 per thousand higher than the prices of one year ago, it is not overlooked that the business of Pacific coast lumbermen is scarcely fair, and they are reaching for Eastern trade. Among them Cyrus Walker says: '•The San Francisco market is demor alized; the small China trade has not grown any, the South American trade does not amount to much, and Australia is dead. In the latter country they have not recovered from their depres sion yet; and the yards are mostly over stocked." There has been some complaint of shortage of cats for lumber, especially at Minneapolis, but the shortage is be ing overcome, and St. Paul has all the cars that the yards require. Among the coining events of St. Paul are: May 13 to 28, National League of Press Clubs; June 7, S and 9, Great Northern celebration; June 10, Loyal Legion; August 21, real estate congress. Secretary Wall, of the real estate ex change, reports an improving demand for residence property in all parts of the city, and that the general outlook is good. Live dealers in realty have had a fair business of late. In it inking Circles. Money continues in active demand here, but on substantial footing. The holiday restricted business, and made exchange irregular yesterday. It closes nominally unchanged. No exciting news from the East yesterday, and the strin gency New YorK, caused by prepara tions for April settlements, is believed by leading bankers to bd only tem porary. Take it all in all, there is a very good feeling among the merchants concern ing the trade situation. There is one thing sure, they are doing a safe, sub stantial business, though in a few-cases it is not liny larger than that of last year. The interviewed say: Genre* W. Freeman, . president C.

The announcement of Mrs. Francis F. Mclver'a death will cause general sad ness here, where she has been known from childhood to womanhood. There is a feelinc of deep melancholy in the thought of her loss— not altogether that she leaves two little children and a de voted husband, but because with her goes out of the world so much loveli ness of character which, in the per fecting touch of years, would have become a beneficence in our human Intercourse. For seemingly such exquisite beauty of person was never before so informed with a like spirit of generosity, kindliness. Im pulsive good-will and lavish helpful ness when service was really needed. In any emergency of sorrow or sickness she would wore without stint for the distressed. Her spontaneous liberality, in thought and deed, was rare. What ever she had she gave without the slight est trace of selfish reservation, so that in dying she had no need of that detachment from earthly belongings which is a keen struggle to some de parting souls. She had been born without that selfish instinct. Through out her short life she took far greater pleasure in having her immediate world enjoy, almost with a sense of owner ship, the material things which are hoarded and treasured, yet which she often gave outright, too, without deem ing it in the least unusual. As it was in material possessions so was it with her gifts and accomplish ments. The present generation of wor shipers in St. Mary's church will recall with sadness for many a year to como the soulful voice that "lent a glory and a charm" to its choir. The last time it was heard there was Easter Sunday two years ago, when, to religious feeiing. it was as sweet as tha breath of English violets. And this blessnd Easter, with its glad sunshine and twittering of birds, thriils the heart into saying. How light are all our griefs to tliee/O Nature! But the soul knows that out of this environment, rife with memoranda of loss and be reavement.there is the resurrection and the life. THE EaTIRK COURT Sat in Special Term Business Yes • orday.

Contributions of Herr Seibert to Both Taste and Edu cation. Skill of His Orchestra Tested by the High Class Num bers. Testimonials by the Public on the Last Concert Occa sion. The musical attractions that St. Paul has enjoyed during the winter have been without doubt superior to those of any other season, and the good things are not yet linished. But local organi zations have borne their share of the work, and won their portion of the laurels. Tho Seibert concerts have given music that the city may well be proud of. Before this winter we have known there was good talent in the orchestra, but never has such a finish or variety of power been displayed. The programmes have teemed with good things, and the different classes of schools have been well interpreted and the vary ing classes of people have found suffi cient inspiration and entertainment Heir Seibert has posed not as a school teacher or a purveyor to popular taste, but as himself, an intense lover ot good music, and believing in the apprecia tion by the public of a higher class of music. The skill of the orchestra has been tested by selections the most compli cated In their call for techniquel and numbers in which the touch of fairies was required. Many of the selections have' been those favorite with the big orchestras. Mendelssohn, Handel, Wag ner, Mascagni and Meyerbeer have been called upon to contribute to the classical part of the programme, and these num bers have been played with an earnest ness, an exactness in technical skill which place the Seibert orchestra with out a peer in the Northwest. Then there have b?en the light tripping meas ures, such as DeHbes' ballet music, and the martial strains of well-known inarches. Each programme has shown an increase in finish until the last one, which was decidedly the best, although numbers scattered through the series will be long remembered for their de lightful interpretation. Not a vacant chair greeted the orches tra as the curtain went up yesterday for the rendering of the last programme. The music world seemed to realize that it was the last treat for several months.and they were therein full force to listen to Mr. Seibert's closing selec tions. The programme included several soloists whose names are sufficient to command attention, out it was a matter of regret that it should be curtailed in or der to make the performance of a reasonable length. To compensate, the four orchestra selections were of high order and finely played. First was the "overture to "Oberon." The fineness of the expression, the perfection of the ' playing defy criticism. It is one of those fairy like compositions which-M} quire a smoothness unattainable except under a stulliu! director: and even then care must be taken lest it degenerate into conimonploce and lock character. Weber's delightful overture met none of these at the lianas of the conductor, and proved one of the most charming things of the series. . "Cavnlleria Rusticana" was one of the numbers on the first programme. It was noted then that It is a selection very well adapted to this orchestra, and one'in which close study would reveal much progress. It was interpreted in a much liner way, the attack was smooth er, there were no blurred notes, and the display of the different instruments of the orchestra, while still exact, was blended into a satisfying whole. Auber's overture, "Lake of the Fair ies," is one of those writings which are dreamy and fantastic, with just enough force and intensity to give it character. We know that Seibert could deal with the sustained notes of progressive force of heavier compositions, but there was a decided witchery in the rendering of this which was new and pleasing. "Hochzeitmusik," by Jensen, com pleted the quartette numbers. The march to church was especially good, and the cornet part, interpreted by Mr. Marlowe, came In finely. The dance was dainty and the nocturne dreamy. Even better things are expected for the season of '93 and ".'4. for Mr. Sei bert and his orchestra may well believe the public demands their fortnightly entertainments. A quintette from Jadassohn intro duced the Beethoven String quartette, with Mrs. Milch at the piano. It was played at their recent concert, but yes terday's performance was even better. An encore failed to elicit a second num ber from this truly delightful organiza tion. Charming Miss Maud Ulmer lent her clear sopiano to assist in concluding the triumph, and she was given an ovation. "The Rose," Spohr, and "Where Lin dens Bloom" were her numbers. Her truly remarkable voice improves each time we hear it. It is of such decided high soprano duality, and possesses a soaring, penetrating quality which well marks her from other singers. •■ v.v ' — "ALI BAIiA." The Great Extravuganza a Howl ing Success." When David Henderson announces a spectacle, the public crowds the theater in the supremo confidence it will be something well worth seeing, and it is never disappointed. Take, for instance, the throng tUat filled all the available space at the Metropolitan last evening. "Ali liaba" was the spectacle announced, and the multitude wont prepared to soe.Qhear and enjoy. It did all three. Henderson has made a record in this line, anil is alone and un approachable. "Ali B;iba" is staged magnificently. Special attention is given to these effects, and they are simply superb. There arc two water scenes— one a cascade and the other a fountain, and the effect, when thrown into bold relief by a strong electric light, with colors playing through it, is grand. The closing effect, "Tlie Birth of the Butterfly," is a fitting climax of the spectacular grandeur. In the opera, the familiar story from the "Arabian Nigiits" of Ali Daba is merely the foundation upon which the extravaganza is reared. There is a gorgeous ballet, more picturesque and brilliant than ever, if possible, with ; us at least seventy-five shapely and i graceful coryphees, introducing many | novel dances and more specialties, with I th« alii or lights and scenic effects. The i costuming is "out of sight," literally and figurative ly,and has never been equaled in st: Paul, in the music there is noth ing specially new, but a great deal of the best ami" most popular airs from current operas have been woven in and are entirely acceptable. The company proper is about the same as gave "Sin bid" last season, <md that is probably saying enough. Among the favorites, some for fun, some tor music, and more lor shape, may be mentioned Eddie Foy. Ida .Mull, Louise Kissing, Ada Heave's, i'nuikie Raymond, Henry Norman, liensie Lynch, lk's.-,ii; Pope and J. L. (iuiltncilt'. Ail ot these are stars in their lines and contribute largely to the success of the extravaganza. When it is^aiii "Ali Uaba" is up to the standard ol tiie llriidersou extravaganzas which iii.vo prcccthM it, it may be regarded as a positive indorsement and the local success ol the spectacle assured..

MORRISON As MKPHISTO. His Fascinating Devil at the ! Grand. It is the prevailing impression among regular theater goers, those who go to j everything.iruiiscriminately and without understanding, that because a play is old the interest attached to it is less ened. Though many who attended the Grand last evening to witness the pro- j duction of "Faust" had never seen the ! play before they declared it to be not j up to Jtke standard because Marguerite did not perform a skirt or serpentine dance, and because Mephisto did not occasionally disguise himself as a ser pant. To the thinking members of the audi ence the play carried a deep lesson, such as was intended by Goethe when he created the allegory. To the others ! it was but a blood and thunder per formance with a lamentable and unin teresting lack of both condiments. The I performance last evening was an unu- j sually good one, and the audience testi- j tied appreciation by a number of eur'.ain j calls. Mr. Morrison as Mephisto made j a fascinating devil. The principal charm of his work is the thoroughness ! of detail and attention to little things, | an example which could l>e followed to advantage by many of the members of his company. Miss Florence' lloberts as • Marguerite was naturally graceful, i charming and bewitching. It would not ! ue justice to her personality to state i that it was all acting, nor credit to her study and work to say it was natural. She played her part well, and assisted Faust to more than one curtain call. \V. 11. Owen as Faust worked haul, but his conception of the part seemed to be more gloomy and taciturn than the lines of the author would warrant, iie ! seemed to have retained many of his i aged characteristics la spite of the reju nivated procees to which he had bean subjected by Mephisto. K. \V. Law rence as Valentine was stagey. His aspirated tones were more indicative of shortness of breath tnan emotion, and lie ranted just a little. Mrs, Clifford as | Martha was excellent. She played her ■ part well, and she evidently worked i hard to arrive at a proper conception of her lines. She worked in entire har mony with the others, and made a very difticult and ungenerous, on the part of ! the author, role attractive. The faults above mentioned are given j as such. The merits of the players | greatly outshone the demerits, and iheir combined work made the performance one of the most interesting seen in the Grand for some time. The scenic effects were very fine, and the elecric effects were agree aoly startling. Those who deligut in seeing a great work treated in a master ful manner will have the opportunity of i seeing "Faust 77 at the Grand during the remainder of the week. CAPITOL CUL.LIXGS.

I Bishop Gilbert Preaches at the I-.aster Services. A more perfect Easter Sunday could never be expected than yesterday was, and the attendance at the churches was never larger. Each church was most beautifully decorated with lilies, roses and potted plants, and the Easter mask | rendered by the various choin | was magnificent. The Knights Tern- I plar attended the morning services in i Ascension church in a body, and in the j afternoon the chorus choir of that • church repaired to the prison, where ! services weie held in the chapel. | Bishop Gilbert, who has preached to the j convicts each Easter during the past I six years, with but one exception, de- I livered an eloquent sermon, and, from the close attention maintained through out, it was plainly evident that his words saok deep into the liearta or his i hearers. .Several excellent musical se j lections were rendered by the prison j choir and the choir of Ascension church, and at the close the entire congregation joined in singing the beautiful hymn "God 13e With You Till We Meet Aeam." The third annual ball of the Still water Boilermakers' union occurs in Music hall this evening, instead of to- I morrow evening.

Nice, April 2.— The receipts of the Monte Carlo casino during the year j which ended Friday were larger than lin any other year of its exist ! euce. They amounted to 24,000,000 francs, and warranted the announce ment of a dividend of 205 francs per share, the largest, dividend yet de clared. Five-hundred-franc shares are now quoted at more than 2,500 francs. i The company proposes a plan for split i ting every share into five shares, leach of a face value or 500 francs, and redistributing the stock on this basis. A similar opera tion was executed by the company in ■ ISS4. The principal feature or the year ! "ambling was the increase of the num : ber of petty ply^'is.
