DEBATE IN THE REICHSTAG
ABC£SSITr OF LEVYIHG NEW TAXES IN THE GERMAN EMPIRE TO XEETTHE AK.TIV EXPENSES "Proposed* Commercial Treaty With Russia Will Be Arranged by the lind oi January— Gossip About the llepeal of the Jesuit Law— The Warsaw Nihilist Plot. [Copyrighted, 1893, bjv the Associated Press.] Beiilix, Dec. '.».— The week's debate in'tfie reichbtag bas added almost noth ing new to the arguments for or against Herr Miquel's linancial measures. The whole subject had been fully threshed in hundreds of public meetings before hand. ~- 0,',;.. V "-V^W :";.•; lv the general debate Herr Miquel had to makoa^liard. stand, inasmuch as ouiy a decade ago, as burgomaster of Frankfort, he headed a petitiou against the taxation of business on the ex change. There 'is a growii.g aglta tlou against the proposed tobacco du ties, and this imperils the taxation programme scarcely iess than the unpopularity of tiie proposed wine duties. As the language of the National Liberal members in the Baden diet indicates, even Herr Miquel's staunch e*t supporters are not prepared to in dorse his measures without grave reser vations. All the deputies from Southern Germany and from the Rhine provinces will add their votes to those of the Freisinnige and Socialist parties against an increase of the wine duties. In fact, it is safe to say that the only tax which will be adopted intact is the bourse tax, yielding 37.000,000 marks yearly the remainder of the .56,000,000 absolutely required in order to meet the army bill expenses will have to be made I up" by a modi hod increase of the duties on tobacco and the high er-priced wines. The Christmas vacation will come before the bourse bill will be through its committee stage. This will give ample time to renew the popular agitation against this measure ana to ISXTXDATE THE KEICHSTAG •with protests a.id resolutions. The houte rises on Dec. 15 and meets again on Jan. 9, 1594. .. :•- The coming week will be occupied by the second and third readings of the commercial treaties and then the Ger man and Russian delegates will resume negotiations with much improved pros pects of success since it is seen that the reichstag *is likely to adopt the proposed commercial treaty with Russia, and it is now expected that the en rt of January may see the treaty arranged. The necessity of levy ing new taxes is making itself felt, not only in the en.pire at large, but also in Saxony. Hauumrg, and in the small principality of Schwarzburg-Sonders hausen, where bills for the introduction or increase of the income tax have been submitted to the respective diets. The fact that 'the Centrists voted in favor ot the treaty with Roumania originated in the rumor that the govern ment had promised to give effect to the reichstag vote to recall the Jesuits. The Associated Press learns that nothing of the kind occurred, and the present indications are quite to the con trary. The emperor has congratulated the Catholic Prince Fuersteuburg for his vote against the repeal of the Jesuit Jaw,' and a distinct movement is begin ning^, to manifest itself in evangelic circles against Hie repeal. The Conservative p<triy has received an earnest request from Breslau, ap pealing to them to protect the interests of the Protestants upon the occasion of the reading of tne bill in the reichstag. and dwelling • « "• ' '-" ! "': ; "TSPOK Tin: : hant.krs "' "' ; : the church 'and fatherland might be in volved -4»y the readmission of the Jes uits. A private dispatch from Rome purports to give the "views of a prom inent cardinal, well iuformed about the affairs of the Jesuits. It says that the Jesuits regard the vote in the reichs tag as only halt successful, because it was probable that the bundesrath: would not ratify the vote. Continuing, the cardinal is quoted as saying: "For the rest, even if readmitted, the Jesuits coul.l not open schools in Germany, because liberty of education is still non-existent in Prussia. Never theless, it would be desirable in the in terests of socialist order, if Jesuits should be readmitted.and exercise their beneficial intiui'uces against the SDread of socialism, whose, agitators are fan ning the fire already lighted. '•The Jesuits, therefore, contribute to the contentment of the working classes. Before their expulsion the Jesuits were directing congregations of the working classes, which were imbued by their education with conservative principles; at the same time the Jesuits' influence would be able to induce employers and the. wealthy classes to show greater solici tation for working people by requiring a less amount of work with better salar ies. It is improbable that the readmis sion ot the Jesuits to Germany will have any effect upon France or Italy. It is hardly- necessary to have the situation changed to Fiance, because, in spite of the decree of March, the government closes its eyes to the fact that the Jesuits open schools, and it is impossible in Italy, where the Masons still MAINTAIN THEm POAVKK. Everywhere else, in .Spain. America and Austria, the Jesuits are free; above all. in America." The report published in the Wurtem burg papers that Minister Moser's re call from Berlin was due to the opposi tion of Premier Mittnacht, or to the new military convention, is unfounded. The report is the, invention of particu larists, and was circulated in order to create uneasiness in Southern Germany. It is possible ti,;<t a desire may exist in military circles here for a closer assimi- Jation of the Wurtemburg army with that. of Prussia, but in the face of the already deepening divergence between the North t-r and Southern states, which threatens the stability of the govern ment, the present moment would hardly be chosen to force a measure that would irritate instead of reconcile the Southern states. YVurtemberg is just as jealous as Ba varia of the limited privileges it enjoys under its military conventions with Prussia, aiul it any change is meditated it will be restricted to a I.AKGi:i: INFISION of Wurtem ofl'cers into the Prus sian army ai:d vice versa in general military interests. Minister Closer appears to be the vic tim of differences of opinion between Stuttgart and Berlin for which he is iv no way responsible. It is asserted that these differences have been smoothed over and that with the appointment of a successor to Minister Moser the matter is Glided. The Lokal Auzeiger publishes details of the Warsaw nihilist plot, showing that it exteuded to St. Petersburg, Cbarkoff, Kitrtt and Odessa. On the night of the Sth it appears the police stopped a boat on the Neva and seized three small eases of dynamite, aud a ;>iui!eiit to whom the cases we.re ad dressed was subsequently arrested at St. Petersburg. Altogether fifty arrests were made, including many officers and girls. The police assert that they have evidence that the bomb outrage against the czar was planned, and it was stated that application of the knout elicited a full confession from the before-men tioned student. The other arrestees were also subjected to terrible torture aud to the Knout. Mass at St. Peter's. Loxnox.

Dec. 9.— The. proceed ings of the Chilian claims commission will progress rapidly from this time forward, as the time, for the filing of claims has passed. The claims will be disposed ol in the order of filing as fast as possible. Many of the cases which were filed early in the sessions of the commission are now well along towards adjudication. Twenty-two which were filed yesterday will be answered by the middle of next week. The commission allows six days from the. time of filing a claim for the defense to demur. This six days began to run against the twenty two cases filed yesterday as soon as they were put "in. so that the legal defects of their, will soon be dis closed. After the demurrer is filed the claimants have six days to answer. When the commission has decided the demurrer, the time is allowed for joining issue on the merits':- of. the case. The claimants have seventy five days for completing proofs, and -at the end of that tin>e the defense is allowed seventy-five days to complete its proofs in opposition to the claim. All of the testimony, oral and by deposition, must be given in Washington, as the commission under no considera tion will leave here .to hear proofs.

Our Representative to Central .'. merica Under Harrison. ' ' ' Benicia, Cal., Dec. Lansing 8. . Mizner, who was minister to Central America when the Barrundia, incident occurred, died this afternoon of dropsy of the heart, Air. Mizuer . had an eventful life. lie was in the army of Gen. Taylor when Mexico was invaded, and being familiar with Span ish. acted as an interpreter, in which position he became valuable. In 1849 he came to California, where he began to practice law. lie ear!y took an active interest, in politics and was prom inent in the legislature. Very fuw men had a larger acquaintance and more friends in the state. The misfortune of his later life was " his ap- : poiritmeut" to the r Central American mission. His thorough familiarity with Spanish and his unright character made him very .popular with the state to which he was accredited, and his usefulness to his country wouid have been very great had not the killing of Barruudia precipitated diplo matic questions which led to liis recall. Mr. Mizner has been in poor health ever since his reami from Central America. Several months ago it was reported that he was dying, his illness being caused by chagrin at his failure to. please the Harrison administration as minister to Central America. •■- • :"• It Aroused Them. .» .'■-"• London Tid-Bits.

General Traffic Manager Gray, of i the Southern Pacific, Is in the City, Arriving I-'roiu jlontreal — The -. Canadian Pacific Boy cott of His Line Is Off— Trans continental Rates Fixed. , . . \ The transcontinental conference meet ing, iv which the. Great Northern, Northern Pacific, Union Pacific and Soo-Pacific general passenger agents were .playing a sort of four-handed game of euchre all the week, came to an end last ulght. Before the: jig was lip, Mr. Hibbard, of the Soo, withdrew, as. the unyielding disposition -of "the Canadian Pacific to take any hand in the game gave him a chance to do with' grace. The labors of the remaining three resulted iv something, after all, for they agreed to restore all transcou tiueutal passenger rates oil Jan. l, : and ot course the Canadian Pacific is not in lhe agreement. There is a belief. __ that now it -will consent to come in, and to make things pleasant for this line there is a report that the Southern Pacific lias declared its boy cott against its Canadian competitor off, hud that it bas authorized business routed via the Shasta route from Port lanu to San Francisco. As has been re peatedly statea, the Canadian Pacific still clings to us differential, which was not objected to during the lite of the transcontinental association. There is an intimation that a way will be found to overcome tuis "burr in the wool," which has so long irritated the Cana dian Pacific's competitors. Yesterday morning General Traffic Mauager Gray, of the Southern Pacific, who has been" to Montreal, presumably to wave ihe olive branch to the Cana dian Pacific people, arrived here, aud took a hand iiu tne little game ol rate restoration himself.. As tne result of the day's work last evening the follow ing was issued, which is ofhcial: At a meeting held iv thiscity at which representatives of Soutlieru - Pacific, Northern Pacific. Union Pacific ana Great Northern were present, it was de cided to advance rates ou Jan. 1 to.fol lowing basis: _\ West- bound— From St. Paul and Miss ouri river terminals to North Pacific coast terminal points: First-class, liui ited to thirty days, $70; first-class, lim ited' to continuous passage, *(>0; second claas, limited to continuous passage, $35; round trip, 480. ~:, :-- East-bound— same points: First-class, limned to thirty days, *7u; first-class, limited to continuous pass ■age, StK); second-class, limited to con tinuous ■ passage, £40; round .trip, $90. This actioii wad taUeu pending a meet ing to b« held by all transcontinental iines, when the entire questiou of trans continental passenger rates will be fur ther considered. _ .> . : .-*:- General Iraftic Manager Gray stated iv substance last night that tiiere are excellent prospects oi the Canadian Pa cific coining into the agreement eveutu ally, but declined to discuss this maltei aiiy further. :"; ;. .?■ ■-"!':*..' . Now that there is a prospect of pas senger rates being auauimously re stored, there is a probability that west bound freight rates may be restored to iheir normal condition. A conference ou this question may follow. . WILL BATKBY TONNAGE. Engines to Be Put ou a Practical ■'- ' Basis. Heretofore it has been almost the uni versal custom to rate engines by the number of cars . they haul, rather than by their actual tonnage. General Superintendent Shields, of the Chicago Gieat-Weaterii^ hits had iv. contempla tioif.tne changing ':' of i the : old 1 and ' un"-*! satisfactory system to one that will be. more convenient, accurate and practi cal. lv short, he has had an expert at work making tests of tha tonnage ca pscity of the company's engines, and has in preparation a schedule by which the engines will be rated on a strictly tonnage basis. For example, a yard master in making up a train will con sult the schedule or rate sheet to ascer tain how many tons the engine marked for the train is rated to haul... He will then consult the way bills and ascertain therefrom the actual weight of the loads in each car to be hauled, adding thereto the weights of the them selves, so as to niake up a train composed, as nearly as possible, of the exact number of tons the engine is capable of hauling. . By. this method it will be possible to get the very best re suits from the locomotives, without at any time seriously overloading them. IJnaer the old system an eugine would frequently be sent out with the number of cars it was rated to haul, but would, iv reality, have not. much more than one-half the tonnage it might have hauled, by reason of the cars being lightly' loaded, while at other times an engine might be sent, with two or three cars less than it was rated to pull, and. on account of the cars being all neavily loaded, would have a train much iv excess of what the engine could han dle, iv consequence of which it would have to reduce or double all the hills on the division. . .. • T-\ v- * The idea, although novel here, is not a new one, having been aiready tried on the Eastern roads with very satis factory results. . AVIL.LI COXI-'KR. Kendrick Willing to Meet the ;■ Employes. General Manager Kendrick, of the Northern Pacific, naturally expects that there will not be perfect unanimity, between the employes on the line and the present management relative to the reduction in the wage schedule. He had not yesterday received any notification from the linemen in regard to tne re ported action of the employes at Fargo or in other localities. There is a general sentiment prevailing that conference commissioners (rom different divisions of the line may arrive during this week. The general inanagerwiti clieerfully confer with them. It is a hopeful indi cation that all possible trouble may be averted that this is so. WHO SUCCEEDS?. Possibly Ed hittaker Will Take Pratt's Place. . Gossip has already begun as to the probable successor of General Passen ger Agent Pratt, of the Minneapolis & St. Louis, in case lie finally accepts the general agency of the New York emi gration agreement. The popular favor ite is J. E. Hannegan; who is to leave the service of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern as the ofhcial head of its passenger department on Jan. 1. One railroad man stated yesterday that there was some chance of E. A. "Whit taker, of the Minneapolis & St. Louis, getting the place, but had no definite reason ior his opinion.

Do Not Let Your Child Suffer All rtinter When a Pew Months' Treatment WillCnre Him. Does your little boy or girl have diffi culty about breathing through the nose? Have you been anxious about it andl, been advised by your family physician^ to let the «hikl aione, that the cuildil would grow out of the trouble? Have you noticed that the child has failed td' arrow as it should have done? Has if become deaf, especially when it has taken a slight cold? Has there been a ; discharge from the ears and frequent: attacks of earache? Have you noticed' that the child does not seem to learn as easily as you think it ought to when af hchool? Have you noticed that the voice is not clear and distinct?" Have you noticed that the child snores at night, and sometimes almost stran gles for breath? If your little one sur fers as described above, ten chances to^ oue the child has an obstruction in the? back part of the nasal cavities. These^ obstructions are called adenoids, an<|| cau be cured by the proper treatment If you neglect the treatment your child may suffer on and lose its hearing or have it seriously impaired for life. Often after these cases are properly treated there is a great improvement iv the general health of the children, and childreu that have seemed to stand still in growth improve so quickly as to as tonish those who have been familiar with them before their treatment. It is indeed a very sad thing to lose any one ofthe senses. Think what a sad thing it is to see a nice young woman with impaired hearing. The time to attend to these cases is during childhood, before such changes have taken place that no human agency can reach and cure thtni. When taken at the time they should be treated it is the rule that all cases are quickly and permanently cured. The Copeland Physiciaii3 have treated and cured hundreas of these cases, and their charges are so low as to be within the reach of all. * . MASTER FREDDIE SAMPSOX. j£cs. Fred Sampson, when seen at her hom**n Ha^el Park a few days ago by the reporter, said, in answer to a question: "Freddie has never been able to~ breathe through his nose. From in- :i fancy he has breathed through his mouth, and any careful mother knows' what that means for a child— dry throat, cough, disturbed sleep, snoring and ! many other unpleasant symptoms. We c took him to the Copeland Medical In stitute about one mouth ago. The phy sician told us he had adenoids, and that' they must be removed. This they did, ' anil Freddie is now much improved in ; every way." DELAYS AiiK D.vrvGEROUS. Have j'ou catarrh? Did you have the "Blip" a year or two ago and never get quite over it? Do you know that you' cannot afford to take ttuv chaihies-df 4 neglecting your case and thereby take great chances of even losing your life from another acute attack of the grip, when, by getting rid of your present trouble, you may be able to escape the disease this year? It is all a mistake to think catarrh amounts to nothing and that nothing can be done for it. You may have catarrh of the. nose and throat, catarrh ot the bronchial tubes, catarrh of the stomach, catarrh of the liver or of the bowels; in fact, all of the organs lined with mucous mebrane are subject to the disease. What is ca tarrh? Why, simply it is an inflamma tion, and is curable if treated in the proper time- and in the prop er way. How often you hear of this or that person passing out of this world, and wheo you are in formed of the cause you are told that a couple of years ago the individual had the "trrip" and never got quite over it, and when this last cold was taken the patient was totally unable to resist the disease, and so another life is lost that might have been saved if proper treat ment had been given at the proper time. A person suffering from catarrh of any organ, you might say, has a standing in vitation out for almost every prevail ing disease. It invites such dfse.ases as pneumonia, Bright's dis-ase. bronchitis, consumption, asthma, etc. The way to save your health is not to neglect little tilings. If you have catarrh, attend to its treatment and avoid the diseases it invites. You can get the skillful atten tion and treatment at the Copeland Medical Institute that your case re quires at the low fee of $5 per month, and this charge covers the cost of all medicines and otlice treatment. Can you aliord to neglect your case? Think of it. $5.00 A MONTH. ALL DISEASES TREATED AT THE UNIFORM RATE OF $5.00 A MON-fH. REMEMBER. * mis IN CLUDES CONSULTATION.

Continued From First Page. a fiacre, motioned him to enter, fol lowed themselves, aud all three were driven rapidly to the prefecture of po lice. The vehicle in which they had de parted had scarcely passed out of sieht of the multitude in front of the building when a similar incident was enacted. The door of the Palais Bourbon opened suddenly a second time, two more gen darmes appeared, having in custody another unknown person, and they also placed him in a fiacre and dro\e away with him to the prefecture. Naturally these mysterious proceed ings aroused the greatest curiosity ainonj; all the eye witnesses of them. At a late hour this eveniug strangers were finally permitted to quit the Palais Bourbon upon furnishing to the police satisfactory details as to their civil posi tion. Fresideut Carnot dispatched a special officer to visit the wounded in his name. It transpires that Deputy Mesureur, from the Seine, cave Lanoir, without knowing him, a ticket of admission to the gallery. Such of the remains of the bomb as have beeu found are made of zinc. The missile of destruction was probably A SARDINE BOX. Its contents are still unknown, but they are now believed to have beeu some destructive chlorate. Lenoir was taken to the police depot, and gave his address as No. 27 Hue Zambuise. In answer to the inquiries of the police he declared emphatically, that there was no one else in the cham ber who was known to him. This state ment, however, was shortly afterwards proved to be false, because while Le noir's wounds were being dressed an other injured man approached him in a stealthy manner, and after whispering Lenoir's name, said: **I am going to the hospital." By this remark the au thorities discovered that Lenoir had lied to them, and that he in reality had one accomplice or more in the building:. Lenoir recently arrived from Bordeaux, and has been under police surveillance ever since. Among the wounded is M. Touclez. an uncle of Gen. Yung. Eis light leg is badly injured. Gen. Billot, who. as already stated, was in the strangers' gallery, was slitrhtly wounded in the left shoulder. Mr. Dupuy, president of the chamber of deputies, received a trifling scalp wound. One of the women spectators named Mailey was wounded in the leg, and so terribly mutilated that trie doc tors declare she will be a confirmed cripple for the remainder of her life. She displayed great courage. A Roumanian woman named Mantel vras also severely wounded. Up to. the! present time fifty wounded persons have passed through the hands of Dr. Blet . alone. Altogether there are over eighty persons wounded. The number of pprsons actually under arrest at this hour is sixty. " Much suspicion is directed towards a shoemaker named Champeau, who has only recently arrived in Paris. It is ascertained that the nails wherewith the bomb was partly ] charged are the same a? those used by • cobblers. Champeau at the outset of j his examination was very cool, but be- i came greatly agitated when he was handcuffed. " The following deputies arfi now j knowu to be amons the wounded: Le- | clech. Abbe Lemire, Comte de Lan juinals, representing the Moorbihan de- ! partmeut in Breta^ue; Amando De faure, from the Seine -et - Oise; Cousin, Ferronais, Duiras, deputy from the Allier department; Leffett and Coubanel. The ¥ sialist deputies Jourde and Jaurez. .d other members i of their party in th ihamber who were interviewed* tonir . vigorously con demned the outraw ~ and declared that the anarchists had nothing in common with the socialists.
