Press Comments on the Attacks of the Ex- Chancellor. Berlin, June 29.— The action of the Government in abandoning its attitude of reserve toward 'Bismarck, as evidenced by threats made in tbe < flicial North German Gazette, has caused a most decided sensa tion throughout tho empire. Further de velopments are awaited with great interest, The T-.gel.lati says: The die is cast. Bismarck has attained the object for which he has striven for the ast two years, and forced the Government to take up the gauntlet he has so often thrown nt its feet. But to attain tills. Bismarck has been obliged to abandon tbe role of anonymous Journalist. He lias personally taken his place in the breach. With the full weight of his historic name lie exposes Chancellor yon Caprivi to the. eyes of foreign nations, and discredits him by means of reckless dialectics. Patriots will regard the pro cedure with aching hearts, but at the same time will admit the Government acts In self-defense when It resolves no longer to expose itself to the poisonous arrows of its adversary. Chancellor yon Capnvl's ques tion, whether Bismarck conduct is pa triotic, will be answered by a majority of the nation with a sorrowful but decided negative. Out-and-out Bismarckans may take the part of the Prince against the Gov ernment, but it is impossible to bolleve the pronunciamento of this civilian Wallensteln will be cro wned with success. The Vossische 2Settung says: A single false step on the part of the Government in the contest now openly embarked upon may lead to a tragedy. No matter what the (minion about Bismarck may be. it will not be a Bismarck tragedy. We merely hope the Government will execute its threat to take action against the creator of German uuity.

"He is thoroughly cap able and i l , intimately acquainted with diplomatic affairs." From the other sido of tin- chamber there came similar sentiments, Senator Blackburn averring that General Foster, was perfectly equipped for the place. The New York World and other Democratic papers of that character will endeavor to make it appear that Foster was atone time employed in a diplomatic capacity by the Chinese Minister to draw up memorials to the Secretary of State, protesting against tbis (i verment's treat ment of Chinese! immigrants. The friends of General Foster dee are that be had nothing to do with preparing these protests. Even if true, the fact of bis being employed by. the Minister as an attorney could hardly be considered as reprehensible. John Watson Foster was born in Pike County, Indiana, Marti. 2, 1836. He was graduated at the Indiana State University in 1885, and after one year at the Harvard Law School was admitted to the bar and began practice at Evansvllle.

He was sent as United States Minister to Mexico by President Gram In 1871!, and was reappointed by President Hayes in ISSO. ln Miirch of that year be was transferred to Russia, and held that mission until Novem ber, 1881, when be resigned to attend to private business. On his return to this country Colonel Foster established himself in practice in international cases in Wash ington, D. ('.. acting as counsel for foreign legations before courts of commissions in arbitrations, etc. President Arthur appointed him Minister to Spain, and he served from February, 1883, 0 March, 1885, when he resigned and returned to the United States, having nego tinted an important commercial treaty with the Spanish Government. This treaty elicited genera! discussion and was strongly opposed in the Senate. That body failed to confirm it, and it was afterward with drawn by President Cleveland lor recon sideration. Some weeks later General Pos ter was instructed to return to Spain to re open negotiations for a modified treaty. '1 he mission, however, was unsuccessful and he remained abroad but a few months. Puring the past two years he has been con nected in an advisory capacity in the office of the Secretary of State. RUNNING RACES. Results of Yesterday's Contests on the Prin cipal Enstern Tracks.
