GLERGY STIRRED UP ANGRY AT THE STAND TAKEN BY THE EMPEROR OF GER MANY. BARRED FROM POLITICS. CLERGY TOLD VERY BRUTALLY NOT TO INTERFEFE IN STATE AFFAIRS. fHE EMPEROR NOT COMING OVER. William Has No Intention of Issuing a Challenge tar the America Cup, us Reported. BERLIN, May 16.—The German cler gy, both Protestant and Catholic, are thoroughly aroused in consequence of Emperor William's telegram to Ge heimrath Hinzpeter, regarding Dr. Btoecker, the ex-court chaplain, and Christian socialist leader, which was published with his majesty's consent. This message was almost brutally brusque, and read: "The clergy must not meddle with politics, because it is no concern of theirs." This angered the clergymen, and the ■whole clerical press has been express ing indignation. Dr. Stoecker has made an outspoken reply in his organ, the Evangelical Church Gazette, in which he says that the emperor, when etill Prince William, himself character ized the Christian-social activity of the clergy as a means of vanquishing so cialism. Dr. Stoecker added: "Since Christian-social thought was tabooed In Berlin, Socialism reigns politically there. As I have begun, so shall I con tinue. I leave the end to God." Two of the leading clerical organs, the Reichsbote and Yolk, severely condemn and deplore the publication of the tel egram, classing it as "inconsiderate" and "unjust," and pointing out that clergymen, by the constitution, are granted the same rights as other citi zens. The Roman Catholic organs, Ger mania and the Cologne Yolks Zeitung, publish articles of a similar tone. The Socialist press denounces the telegram as imperial interference with constitu tional rights, and in various parts of Germany, clerical synods have taken pains to express confidence in Dr. Stoecker and his methods, and severely criticise his majesty's telegram. Early in the week, the peace jubilee was celebrated throughout Germany. Besides the fetes at Frankfort, there were elaborate fetes in a semi-military character at Dresden, Darmstadt and Hanover, and a vast festival in this city, organized by the veterans of the wars, of whom 7,000 marched in pro cession. The jubilee was kept generally I in Bavaria, especially at Munich, Nur emberg and Augsberg. Twenty thous and school children paraded at Munich, and were reviewed by Prince Regent Luitpold. It was remarked, however, that the fetes In Bavaria were strictly of Bavarian character, that only Ba varian flags were displayed, that nei ther the emperor nor Prince Bismarck were referred to in the orations, and that no reference to Germany or the German army was permitted. Several of the persons arrested at Frankfort on the charge of lese majeste, made incriminating remarks In close proxim ity to, and even within hearing of, the emperor during the unveiling there on Sunday last, of the monument erected to the memory of Emperor William I. The report that Emperor William in tended to challenge for the America cup if his new yacht Meteor turned out to be faster than Valkyrie 111. was, has been investigated. A dispatch was sent direct to his majesty at Primke nau, Silesia, where the emperor and empress were visiting Prince Guen ther of Schleswlg-Holstein, his majes ty's brother-in-law. The following re ply was sent: "The report that his majesty would challenge for the Amer ica cup Is erroneous, as the Meteor will only sail In European waters." In connection with the bill to re organize the Fourth battalion of in fantry regiments, the Conservative and military parties have begun an agita tion for the abolition of the biennial military service, and for a revival o the triennial. The Kreuz Zeitung (the military weekly) is leading the agita tion In the press. According to the present law, the biennial service is only an experiment, and ends April 1, 1897, unless specifically continued by a new law. As a countercheck to this move ment, the Radicals in the relc'hstag have resolved to add a paragraph to the Fourth battalion bill, making the biennial service permanent. An inter esting and sensational debate will be the consequence, as the Centrists main ly side with the Radicals in this mat ter. The trial of the band of fifteen fraud ulent railroad employes and ticket swindlers of Frankfort is expected to conclude today. The gang, it was shown during the testimony taken, has been operating for several years on a number of Prussian, Alsatian and Hes sian roads. The frauds are estimated to have profited 1,500,000 marks, and it is said that the prisoners dead-headed thousands of passengers, for a consid eration 1 given them, with tickets which had previously been used. The chief police spy in the case is understood to be an habitual criminal, who has spent years in prison. The rejection by the diet of the as sessor paragraph, by which the Prus sian government sought to exclude all Liberal elements from the judgships, will induce the government to with draw the whole of the court reform Beecham'spills are for bil iousness, bilious headache, dyspepsia, heartburn, torpid liver, dizziness, sick head ache, bad taste in the mouth, coated tongue, loss of appe tite, .sallow skin, etc., when caused by constipation; and constipation is the most fre quent cause of all of them.

Dr. Below, the expert hygiene, has resumed his agitation against the con sumption of American meat. He claims that the American meat inspection is a sham, intended to hoodwink Europe, and quotes a letter from Phil Armour; saying that meat inspection in Amer ica would be needless and vexatious. Dr. Below also criticises the efforts of the American consuls to popularize American meats as being insincere and misleading. MOSCOW FILLING UP. Crowds Arriving: to Witness the Czar's Coronation. MOSCOW, May 16.—This old town la rap idly filling up with visitors from all parts of the world, who have come to witness the ceremonies attending the coronation of the czar and czarina, which will extend over a period of three weeks, beginning, according to the programme, with the arrival of their majesties at the Petrovski palace, outside this city, on Monday, and concluding with their departure for St. Petersburg on June 7. The streets are filled with people of all na tions and with delegations from all parts of Russia. The weather, up to the present, has been a little too cold to be pleasant, but a change is expected before the fetes begin. A question regarding the precedence of Prince Henry of Prussia, representing Em peror William, and the Duke of Connaught, representing Queen Victoria, has been settled in favor of the latter. The American lega tion is the center of attraction for the Amer icans here. The latter are headed by Gen. McCook, representing President Cleveland, and the legation has been his headquarters. The building is well situated, and affords a fine view of the boulevards. It is very hand somely decorated inside. The decorations of the Kremlin are about completed, the domes have been freshly guilded and the richly tinted towers are most picturesque. The public is freely admitted, and there ia a con stant procession of pilgrims to the Upenski cathedral. A decree has been promulgated prohibiting during the fetes riding on horse back or on bicycles in the streets, or boating on the river. This step was taken in view of the immense crowds of people expected here. HARMOMOtS SESSION. A'o Trouble in the Idaho Repub lican Convention. POCATELLO, Idaho, May ]6.—The Repub lican state convention met here today and proved a harmonious gathering. The Dubois men were in control by about 180 to 70. The financial plank is very emphatic and compre hensive. It begins: "Whereas, The Repub lican convention of 1888 declared in favor of gold and silver as standard money of the United States and condemned the action of the Democratic party for its efforts in attempting to demonetize silver, and the Republican na tlcnal convention of 1892 substantially reiter ated the declaration of 1888, and '■Whereas, The question of crystallizing into law the utterances of the last two conven tions named, and of every utterance hereto fore made by the Republican party of this state, recently arose in the United States sen ate, Senators Henry M. Teller, Fred T. Du bois, Thomas H. Carter, Lee Mantle and Frank Cannon demanded the enforcement of said platform and utterances, under condi tions known to all, therefore be it "Resolved, That we heartily Indorse the ac tion of Senator Dubolg in joining with his as sociates named in the fearless position named in behalf of the free coinage of silver and pro tection to American industry and reciprocity, one and inseparable." The resolutions then state that free coinage of silver would open to the United States the immense trade of China and Japan, and in structs the delegates from this state to work for a silver man in the St. Louis convention. The delegates will be Senator Dubois, ex- Ccngressman Sweet, A. B. Campbell, of Sho shone; Lytieton Price, of Blame; M. B. Gwinn, of Canyon, and Ben Erlchs, of Fremont.

PfllflCE OF A^fißm : — LO\DO\ INTERESTED IX A HO ilA.Vt'E INVOLVING EMIR HAP FIZ, OF MECCA. SUED BY LAWYER BRIGGS. THE ATTORNEY ADVANCED MONEY TO SECURE POSSESSION OF FABULOUS JEWELS. SOCIAL SEASON IN FULL SWING. Sunday Bicycle Excursions In Great Favor With the Smart Set of England. LONDON, May 16.—The continued warm, dry weather of the past week imported gayety to the streets.the parks were unusually full of people and the river clubs, like the Hurlingham and Ranelagrh, where polo playing is in full swing, were largely patronized. The terrace of the house of commons is again crowded at tea time by gaily dressed ladies; but many of the smart est set are still in the country and Newmarket this week has absorbed all the racing set, including the Prince of Wales. Great interest centers upon the next drawing room, upon which occasion Lady Blandford will present the young Duchess of Marlborough, formerly Cbn suelo Vanderbilt, and Lady Henry Somerset will present her daughter-in law, formerly Lady Catherine de Vere Beauclerk, daughter of the Duke of St. Albans. Many other nobilities will be presented on the same day. The Princess of Wales, it is expected, will represent the queen. The Duke and Duchess of York re turned from Copenhagen on Thursday last, and the Princess of Wales ( and her daughters arrived from the South of France yesterday. The Duke and Duchess of Marlborough have taken up their residence in Dudley Square, and were very much sought after for the various functions of the week. The duchess is being critically inspected by society, which is much struck by her simplicity. A series of remarkable divorce, breach of promise and other trials are at present occupying the law courts. The chief interest centers in a romance which was unfolded before Justice Haukins. It was the case of Brlggs vs. The Emir Haffiz, an Arabian prince. Who has paid several visits to America,and who has resided in prince ly style for years at various London hotels. Brlggs, who is a lawyer, tes tified that he met the emir when the latter was a youth under the guardian ship of Miss Burton, a sister of the famous travelers. According to a let ter from Miss Burton, Emir Haffiz's father was a prince, the ruler of Mecca and a third descendant of the prophet. Haffiz claimed that his family fortune amounted to £20,000,000, of which he was entitled to one-quarter. In 1888 Haffiz summoned Briggs to Oxford, and informed him that his family was coming to England to invest the fort une, which had been melted into gold bars and packed in salt in order that they might be carried more easily. On the strength of this story Briggs lent money to Haffiz, and afterwards, on various pleas and upon the emir rep resenting that it was necessary, sent messengers to Arabia to communicate with Haffiz's parents and to send ships to the coast to meet the treasure car avan. Briggs also furnished other sums of money, amounting to £3,500. The lawer admitted writing a letter to Haffiz to the effect that the ad vances were made "out of love," but he explained that this letter was writ ten at the dictation of the emir, whom he described as excitable. Counsel for Hafflz said that the latter lived on an income furnished by \his tribe, amounting to f12,000 yearly. He added that Briggs' family had for years lived with Haffiz, dominated him and hoped to profit ultimately when Haffiz ruled over Mecca. Haffiz, according to his counsel, had given Mr. Briggs sums of money amounting to £6,000, in addition to clothes and jeweJry. Ultimately the Briggs family and Haffiz quarreled, and the suit to recover the money ad vanced followed. The trial lasted five days, and resulted yesterday in a ver dict for Briggs, with costs. The success of Pierre Lorillard at Newmarket has been exceptionally well received. The Globe says: "The pop ular feature at Newmarket was the running of Mr. Lorillard's horses. The cherry and black hcops have ever been welcome to Englishmen since the days of Iroquois and Parole." Some English men say that the success of the Amer ican horses is due to the English jock eys. The opera season opened with what is claimed to be the largest subscrip tion ever known in the hi3tory of the Italian opera. All the prominent Am ericans in town were present at the opening performance of "Romeo and Juliet," with De Reszke and Emma Eames in the leading roles. The principal event of the week in a dramatic way was the long an nounced performance of "Romeo and Juliet" on Friday afternoon, at the Prince of Wales theater, by the Misses Esme and Vera Berlnger. The en tertainment was for, the benefit of the Actors' Orphanage "fund. Miss Esme Berlnger took the part of Romeo to her sister's Juliet, and the result was a charming performance which delighted all present. No more graceful, well proportioned Romeo was ever seen on a stage, and it Is doubtful if any pret tier Juliets have been produced. The lovemaking of Esme Beringer was es pecially catching, and both sisters were heartily applauded. Adelina Patti made her first appear ance in London this season on Tues day afternoon at Royal Albert hall. She was assisted by Ada Crossley, Ed ward Lloyd, Reginald Brophy and Al exander Tucker. The accompanist was Wilhelm Ganz, Jacques Forbes violin ist, Clara Eisler harpist, and Jofen Lemone the flutist. Daniel Frohman, who is staying at Brown's hotel, said today: "My plans in London are very simple. I shall remain until the end of May, and then go to Paris. While here I am trying to arrange for producing Olga Neth ersole in her version of 'Carmen' at some London theater. I am also ne gotiating with several authors for plays for my Lyceum theater season in New York." The new play, "Josiah's Dream," by Charles Rodgers, is now in active re hearsal at the Strand theater, where It will be produced with a strong cast on the first of June. Miss Fortesque has been playing during the week at the Theater Metropole, it being her first appearance in London since her return from Africa. The bill has been "Pyg malion £ahfi Galatea" and "Comedy and Tragedyyi and her support" has includ ed Julius fKnight, Adele Mesor, Helen Ferrer*, llate Hodson, Gerald Maxwell and John JJuekstone. Fred Terry will shortly appear as the principal charac ter in^MaJcolm Watson's play, "The Haven of Content." Seymour Hicks threatens Yvette Guilbert with a law suit urfless she stops singing "I Want Yer, MV Honey." Mr. Hicks claims all rights. 1 It tf reported that Perry Belmont is here on a mission in connection with the sliver'question. He had a long conference at the United States em bassy yesterday, and has interviewed Lord StaLbridge, who has been promi nent in" the movement. Mrs. Calvin S. Brice and her two daughters, and Mrs. Douglas Grant, of New York, are the only two Americans to be presented at Monday's drawingroom. The seasonable weather of the past j few weeks has had the effect of sending j all Londoners who are smitten with the ! bicycle fever out of town for the Sun day, these excursions being very pop ular. The most popular is the famous old inn known as the Star and Garter, at Richmond. The managers of the well known hotel have wisely catered for this trade, and a long row of racks are provided, where bicycles may be stored during the owner's period of refreshment within the inn.

WINONA, Minn., May 16.—City Marshal Parr, of St. Charles, arrived in this city at noon today, having in custody William Wal lace, whom he lodged in the county Jail here. It seems on the night of the 14th the shoe store of J. C. Johnson was entered at St. Charles and some $40 worth of goods se cured. Wallace had been absent from his hotel all that night and did not return until early the next morning. The city marshal smelled mice, and securing a search warrant, went thro.ugh ■ Wallace's room. Two tell-tale pairs of new shoes were found in his trunk. These Wallace says he bought at Plalnview. However, none of this brand of shoes are sold at Plalnview, so he was arrested and now awaits a hearing here. flf» Tng on Pettigrrevr. PIERRE, S. D., May 16.— F. W.

He has Just returned from an Eastern tour, and is as enthusiastic over the prospects of fres silver as is the senator. He states that the senator will continue to vote for free silver at all times, regardless of the action of ttfi Huron convention, and that he does not con sider the action of that convention in any way binding upon him to vote against the free sil ver doctrine.

ACTION WAS TOO HASTY. AN' INVESTIGATION SHOWED THAT THE EVIDENCE OFFERED WAS I\RELIABLF MR. MUvIXLEV HAS BEEN SEEN. His Responses to the A. P. A. Com mittee Are Said to Have Been Quite Satisfaetorr WASHINGTON, May 16.—Today's session of the American Protective as sociation's supreme council was the j most interesting of the convetion, be- I cause the action of the executive com mittee of the advisory board in black listing Mr. McKinley as a presidential candidate was to be reviewed. The re port of the advisory board upon the i action of its committee was technically I an indorsement of tne executive com mittee. It asserted in substance that the executive committee was warrant- i ed, in view of the evidence presented i to it, in placing- a ban upon Mr. Mc | Kinley. But in addition, it states that a further examination of this testi mony by the full board has convinced the members that the witnesses were unreliable, and that their statements were incorrect. Therefore the board concluded Mr. McKinley should be placed upon the same footing, so far as members of the A. P. A. are con cerned, with the other candidates for presidential nominations, and should not be discriminated against. Append ed to the report was a statement in writing by Delegate Huddleson, of Cal ifornia, who asserts that a committee of which he was chairman interviewed Mr. McKinley at his home in Canton, 0., and that the interview was satis factory. The morning session was devoted to the consideration of amendments to the constitution in committee of the whole. One was adopted to establish the permanent headquarters of the or der in Washington, and to make it obligatory upon the supreme president and supreme secretary to reside here. The second amendment takes away the privilege of seats in the supreme coun cil for presidents and past presidents of state councils, except those regularly elected to be delegates. The recom mendation of Supreme President Tray nor that the right vested in the su preme president to arbitrarily remove state officers be taken away, was car ried into effect by another amendment. The afternoon session was consumed In the adoption of further amendments to the constitution. Several resolutions were adopt ed. The most interesting of these provides for the appointment of a committee of five to take steps toward the establishment in Washington of a bureau for inquiry into and the collection of facts regarding the alleged activity of the Roman Catholic church in pol itics. The preamble to those resolutions says: "The unified organization of the Roman Catholic church is politically centralized at the national capital In its papal legation, and on Oct. 2, 1895.. the American Roman Catholic hierarchy made a significant reorganization of the bureau of Catholic Indian missions, mak ing the controlling board Eastern men, locat ed in the pivotal center of population, rather than Western men, located near the In dians." The preamble also charges that one branch of the war department is so dominat ed by the Catholic church that in its reorgan ization under this administration the per cent of Catholics was increased from 20 to 47; that the pension bureau is controlled by that church, and that a member of the cabinet has said that two-thirds of the clerks certified to his department by the civil ser vice commission were members of that church. At half-past 7 tonight the council met again, expressing a determination to complete ita business before* adjourning, even if it was necessary to sit all night. The McKinley question was the first on the programme. Following is the full report of the advisory beard, which was adopted at tonight's session of the council, practically without opposition or discussion: "Your board finds, after investigation, that there is no reason why any one of the follow ing named candidates for the Republican nomination for president of the United States may not be supported by the members of the order: Hon. William B. Allison, of Iowa; Hon. Thomas B. Reed, of Maine; Hon. Matthew Quay, of Pennsylvania; Hon. Shelby M. Cul lom, of Illinois; Gov. Bradley, of Kentucky; Hon. Benjamin Harrison, of Indiana; Hon. Levi P. Morton, of New York; Hon. William McKinley, of Ohio. "Regarding the matter heretofore appearing in the public press relative to Gov. William McKinley, we find that it was sustained by the evidence in the possession of the executive committee of this board at the time of publi cation, but subsequent statements received by this board from the special committee, sent by authority of this board, to interview Gov. McKinley, show- that he denies and explains the greater part of the matter contained in said evidence, and which statements are ac cepted by this board." The committee also reported that in its interview with Gov. McKinley he fully and unequivocally indorsed the principles of the order, and in order that no injustice might be done him It was recommended that so much of this action as migh- be deemed *ise be given to the press for publication. The report continues: "We also find that the action of the executive committee of this board was taken in good faith, and this board also believes that the action of the supreme council's session of May, 1895, con ferred upon them full power to do as they I did. • No candidates of any other political j party have been investigated, for the rea- i eon that none have yet come before the pub lic sufficiently prominent to demand an in vestigation by this order. We recommend that provision be made to ascertain the atti tude toward the principles of this order of any and all candidates for place on nation al tickets to the end that the members of this order may be able to act and vote in telligently." Officers for the coming year were elected as follows: President, Charles Echols, At lanta, Ga.; vice president, Henry S. Williams, Boston; secretary of state, H. P. J. Swayne, California; chaplain, W. H. Getwoldo, Wash ington, D. C. At 12:15 the council adjourned until Monday for the transaction of unfin ished business. LAKE TRAIN SERVICE.

CROOKSTON, Minn-, May 16.—This was a good day for sooners, and some of the very soonest arrived. They were the previous settlers, and yesterday morning at D o'clock were supposed to be on the reservation line ready for a start for their claims. Some were, perhaps; more were not, however. Far the greater number was already upon the land. They threw a shovelful of dirt out of a hole which they called a cellar, nailed a few boards upon four posts, which they swear is a house, and started back. A number reached here from Thief River Falls la3t night, and the Fosston train brought in upwards of 200. They were hanging out of windows or perched on top of box cars, which did duty as passenger coaches, and the contest for the head of the line at the land office resulted in a wild stampede. The office today has ac cepted 140 filings and turned down as many more on account of defective papers or be cause the land had been claimed. The result will be contests galore, and every one of the numerous attorneys has already begun from one to a dozen. Monday will be the banner day, as by that time more can have reached here after starting improvements. THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minn., May 16.— Today everything is quiet, both In the city and on the reservation. Many filings are still behig made before the United States court commissioner here. Reports of trouble on the reservation at the time of the rush yesterday are found to be without foundation. Land seekers are still flocking in large numbers. Today's train brought fifty or more who have left already for the reservation. It is raining hard again today, and it is feared a great deal of suffering will be experienced by those on the reservation who have not got their im provements far enough along to afford protec tion. ST. PAIL TO THE LAKE. Full Text of Maj. Sears' Report on the Canal Project. DULUTH, Minn., May 16.—Washington dis patches a few days ago made the statement that the report of Maj. C. C. Sears, V. S. A., on the ship canal from Lake Superior to the Mlssiasippi river had been presented, and giving a few meager details. The full text of the report has now been received, and it is, in substance, as follows: The law under which the survey was made prescribes. In a general way, the considera tion of three routes, but precludes an opin ion as to whether any one of them is feas ible, or whether the commercial benefits to be deiiTed will justify the expenditure in volved. I have confined myself to the ques tion as to which of the routes mentioned la "the most feasible." Whether feasible at all or not I have not stated. The work of sur rey has stopped where the Mississippi river has been reached, leaving the Mississippi river end of one of the routes—St. Louis river-Sandy lake—over 300 miles above St. Anthony falls. The territory to be covered comprised some 12,000 square miles, for the most part covered with forests and swamps, rery much broken by hilla and ravines', sparsely settled and with few lines of com munication. The total length of waterway on the line via Aliouez bay, Brule and St. CroLx rivers, to the Mississippi at the mouth of tho St. Croix is 210 miles; the height of summit above Lake Superior. 415 feet; the total lift , and drop, 767 feet; the number of hydranlic lifts is 24, and the total cost for a canal 80 feet wide at water surface, 53 feet wide at bottom and 7 feet deep, including right cf way and land damages, but excluding cost of compensation for vested rights of logging interests, is about $7,050,000. . Tho total length of waterway from Lake Superior to the Mississippi at the cutlet of Sandy lake Is ninety-four miles; the height of summit level, above Lake Superior is C 34 feet; the total lift and drop, 660 feet; the number of hydraulic lifts 9 and of lock 3 23, and the total cost for a canal, Including feeder line «■■* PflMI FURNITURE CO.
