IfM I/y the yew 1'inh Annetalrd
BKUI.IN , Juno 28. The rcichsttig has passed
the nrmy bill to n third reading without
amendment. The minority consisted of the
frelslnnigo , socialist and volkcs par-
tics and sixteen 'memberof
the center party. Of the centrist members
who voted against the bill sixteen wcro from
Bavaria and two from Baden. They refused
to follow Dr. Wlndtiiorst in accepting Chan
cellor von Cnprlvi's assurances that extensive
leaves of absence would bo granted after two
years' service and that an annual budget
would bo presented which would enable
the rclch.ttag to muko the fixation .of
place effective , The chancellor's concessions
practically amount to little , but they sufficed
to clvo the bulk of the center party nn ex
cuse for voting for the bill. The house then
next passed to Its second reading of tlio
budget committee's report striking out the
credit demanded by the government
for raising tho. pay of ofllccrs
, below the rank of colonel. Baron
IVlultozulin , the imperial secretary of tlio
treasury , and General Verdy du Vcrnois , the
minister of war , again advocated the rein
sertion of the credit without fail. The sup
plementary estimates , amounting to 7t,000dOO :
marks , which arc mainly intended for mili
tary purposes , were referred to the budget
committeo.
Tlio government , having now se
cured the passage of the nrmy
bill , the house can adjourn early in July until
November , when bills bearing on the labor
question will form ttio chief work of the
reichstng.
The bill concerning the aequisation of
Heligoland and the financial plans of the gov
ernment by which the increased nrmy ex
penditures are to bo met will remain undis
closed until the winter session.
Sir Edward Malet , the British ambassador ,
bad an important conference with Chancellor
von Caprivi yesterday on the subject of the
opposition of tlio French government to the
East African agreement. The vote of M.
Hobit , tlio French ministerof foreign affairs ,
protesting against the establishment of a
protectorate over Zanzibar , affects
German claims within tlio sultanate
mid also the proposed acquisition of Mafia.
The conference resulted in an agreement to
take simultaneous action in opposing the
right of Franco to interfere. The English
government has prepared a reply to M. Kibot
to tno effect that if the sultan accepts the
protection of England or any other power the
treaty of IM52 gives France no right to object ,
and' further , that the Anglo-Gorman arrange
ment does not attack the indepcndenco
. of the sultan , protection not involving
/ subjection. The . .English , , votoMvviU t. bOj
presented to M. Kibot early next week and
will bo supported by a diplomatic intimida
tion of Germany's concurrence. The French
press reports that Lord Salisbury's reply was
handed to M. Kibot today are untrue.
The Keichsan/.eigor today vindicates the
Anglo-American iipi-ccmcnt as made in the
interest of the German East Africa company.
The colonial society's opposition which is based
upon tlio idea that German commercial ex
pansion has heotymcrillced , Is declared to bo
inconsistent with the facts. Instead of neg
lecting the interests of the company the gov
ernment , after the transfer of tlio coast line
with Malta , will assist the company to col"
oulze and the Germans who tire try
ing to develop trade and agri
culture on the coast will lind ample
support from the government. The article
Is obviously a response to the remarks made
by Prince Bismarck to a deputation that
Awaited on him recently. England , ho said ,
would crush the German trade in oust Africa.
The English might at the outset of the pro
tectorate treat with complaisance the Ham
burg merchants who have settled in
Zanzibar , but They would soon contrive to
oust them.
Baron Wlssmtmn , since his interviews
with the emperor and Chancellor vonCaprivi ,
has modified his dislike to thu concession of
Zanzibar to the English. At General von
Caprivi's ministerial dinner ho said there
were good harbors on thu main land from
which ready access could bo find lo the in
terior and ho was assured of immense devel
opments of Germany outside of the sphere of
Kngltsh competition. The Germans , ho
declared , need not bo jealous of
foreign traders , as there was ample room for
1 .everybody In Africa.
Baron Wissmaiin will not re turn to Zanzi
bar , but will bo attached to the colonial do-
pai'lment here.
The renewal of tlio drollmnd until ISO. ) has
been a subject of negotiations between
Signer Crisp ! , the Italian premier , and Count
Kulnoky , thu Austro-llungarian prlmo min
ister. The now treaty , though unsigned , is
effectively assured , the communications
which have already been exchanged commit
ting the governments to an extension of the
period of the compact.
Emperor William arrived at EMnoro this
nftornoon. Ho was met at the landing by
King Christian , Crown Prince Frederick and
Danish royalties and the clvlo and"
iillttiifyX authorities and given a cordial
greeting.
The porto has sent prlvato envoys to nor-
tin , Vienna and London on a mission relating
to the demands for Bulgarian independence ,
which are concurrent with Uussla's insist-
unco upon the Immediate payment of : iOXKi- , ( ,
two francs of war Indemnity. The
policy of the Bulgarian prime minister
is obscured , while Kussia is reported to bo
jiropariiiK to back up her demand by sending
the Black sea licet Into Turkish wu'tors.
The recent story about the undermining of
the war's palace at Gatschlna proves to have
been exaggerated. A barrel half full of
dynamite was found in the wine cellar , and
there Is no clue to how it eamo there. The
chief of the private police has been dismissed
on account of it.

LONDON , Juno SS. [ Special Cablegram to
Tin : BII : : . ] The test of popular opinion on
the question of compensation to publishers ,
which is the basis of Cain's campaign at
Burrow-iii-Furncss , is attracting more atten
tion than has been given to any single elec
tion in England in many years , and the con
test for the seat promises to bo waged with
a degree of bitterness that will sever many
lifo long friendships.
Cardinal Manning takes part in the cam
paign to the extent of writing a letter to Mr.
Cain , In which ho bids that gentlemad God
speed in the cause of whicli he has made
himself champion. The venerable prelate
writes that ho has always refused to take
part In political matters , but ho ivg.irds the
present Issue as a question of morals and ,
therefore , feels called upon to express his
views and declare his preferences.
The action of Barrow liberals In putting up
n candidate renders Mr. Cain's return ex
tremely unlikely , while Lord Htirtingloifs
telegram advising unionists to support tlio
torv candidate Is believed to bo of sufficient
weight to uivo the seat to u conservative.
London liberals have espoused the jwllcy of
the poheo in their attempt to obtain recogni
tion of their demands , and will endeavor to

Today tin Intimate friend of the clerk went to
the state's attorney and said positively that
the affidavits were drawn by Mackin , and
that the latter had frequently boasted to him
of the fact. A bailiff was sent out for
Mackin , but he could not bo found , and the
general impression is that ho has absconded
to avoid prosecution for perjury. Mackin
was released a few months ago from the

cer in charge of the work upon the location ,
plans and estimates of constructing the Hen-
nepln canal. The cost of llio work , with 10
per cent added for contingencies , is for the
main line .I.OO'.WW , and for the feeder lines
$ l , iStO : $ . Captain Marshall recommends that
to secure full benefits the Illinois and Mich
igan canal should bo enlarged to the capacity
of the government canal , otherwise tlio pro
posed canal would be simply a local highway
of Importance toits immediate neighborhood ,
but regarded iis a national highway of but
comparatively small significance. Captain
Marshall in conclusion states that the canal
cannot bo of such value to commerce as it
would were the line throughout of greater
capacity. It is evident , lie says , that the
canal should bo built as a public necessity ,
either by the government or oy a private
corporation.

Senator Paddock tonight submitted his re
port In favor of the bllhto pension the widow
of the late General Crook. Senator Paddock
mudcu firm light for the adoption of his bill ,
ns originally Introduced ! giving n pension of
$2,000 a year , but found that all the other
members of the committee favored $1,200 ,
and ho finally yielded. | The report Is unan
imously endorsed by the committee and Is
quite lengthy , embracing a full military his
tory of the noted warrior and many endorse
ments from civil and 'military associations
and legislatures , umofjg them being n
memorial from the citizens of Omaha and a
preamble and resolution ? from the Nebraska
legislature. In the coin-so of his report Sen
ator Paddock says : t 'Gcncrul Crook was
perhaps unique nn' itg the surviving-
generals of the civil war. His first honors
were won us the protector of the lives and
homes of the western ( frontiersmen against
the merciless savages , j Ills last guerdons
were gained as the fgloiid of the Indians
whom ho had conquered and tw the advocate
of honesty and justice I toward the nation's
wards. From his graduation nt the military
academy until his dcathf'his life was filled
with action. His military duty led htm into
every section of the cottiitry and never with
out signal distinction toThtmself. On the Pa-
ciflo coast , tlio plains Oftlio middle west , iu
the arid regions of Arizona and Now Mexico
and the rocky canons at the Sierra Mndra , no
less than on the battlefields of the south , ho
served his country with unsurpassed gal
lantry and matchless devotion to duty.
His bravery and soldlcrjy abilities wcro hon
ored by brevets during the civil war for
gallantry and meritorious service. His wis
dom , daring and supreme capacity in com
mand of troops for tliosubjugatlon ; of hostile
Indians mudo him the TCeipient of repeated
resolutions of thanks from the legislatures of
'the states and territories to whicli ho brought
peace. From the closo'pf the war until his
do'ith ho made his namd'aud the record of his
deeds a part of the imperishable history of
American valor , a lasting tradition among
every tribe of Indians'of , the west and a
never to be forgotten recollection
among the pioneers , , and frontiersmen.
His services rendered jpo slblo the rapid set
tlement of vast areas , of territory and the
development of mines and valleys inaccessible
before opened by his.victorious campaigns.
His last distinguished 'Service rendered pos
sible the opening of tho. great Sioux reserva
tion , through the personal influence which ho
exercised in council cyor those whom he had
defeated in war. Gallantus , he was in battle ,
General Crook's magnanimity and tenderness
toward his foes will "iiovvr bo forgotten in
those parts of the /oiit'-i where he served.
Long years after thoJSi.-.igglo ended largo
portions of his. pay y-n l toward alleniatlng
poverty and -dlstrtjis' ig enemies whom
ho had overcome fil 'battlo. They of' nll
others will bear most cheerful wit
ness to the chivalrous nature and warm
heart of General Crook , while hundreds
oj his sick and suffering comrades , their
widows and orphans will join in the' testi
mony. General Crook has left his widow in
indigent fircumstancos and through 110 fault
of his own. Arduous and continuously
changing service , with the expense attendant
upon change and its steudv draft upon
pecuniary resources , through generosity to
comrades ami friend1) , is responsible Jo'- the
condition of his estate. Your committee is
confident that the country , which owes so
much to his memory , will not permit Ids
widow to want. The sentiment which made
exceptional circumstances in tlio cases of the
widows of Admiral Furragut and of Generals
Thomas , Hancock and Logan will find
equally meritorious application In tlio ease of
the widow of the gallant union general , tlio
distinguished Indian lighter and the pacificator

COl.ONT.L IIDXDnilSON'S SI'RKCII ,
There Ian been no more effective spnecb
delivered in favor of the national elections
bill than that of Colonel Henderson of Iowa
In tlio house this afternoon. He reversed all
of tlio arguments used by the democrats
against the bill and mudo them .stand In favor
3t tlio measure. Colonel Henderson said that
lie regretted to learn from expressions on tlio
floor of the house and elsewhere that there
was n feeling in some quarters that the north
was unfriendly toward the south. Ho did
not believe there was any but the best of feel
ing in the north toward the south and south
ern interests upon the part of any ono. But
it does not follow , said ho , that because tlio
north is friendly towards the south that the
former is expected to call white black or
black white , and that the gravest wrongs
were to bo ignored or winked at.
Ho did not believe that any northern politi-
ticians would use tlio southern question for
party advantage. The suggestion , ho said ,
was as n two-edged sword. No ono used sec
tional questions more actively for political
purposes than southern democrats. Ho ap
pealed to tlio democratic side to say whore
the most dom.igogry was employed 'in refer
ence to the southern question. Education
and n lack of prejudice was what was wanted.
Great wrongs upon any pooiilo always visited
the . Colonel Henderson
wrong-doers. re
viewed the proposed law and said it was in
tended only to secure a fair and free exercise
of fnmdii.su and the honest results of votes
east. It was not intended to and would not
tlTect dl.sadvautagcou-ly the honest voters.
It wu > impersonal and non-sectional. If the
fi'auds do not exist such as it
s intended to thwart by this
: ) ill , then the republican platforms
were a lie and the republican orators and
u'ess have not the truth in them. Ho ap-
icaled to the honor and lalrness of repub-
icuns and asked them to stand by the meas
ure if they would bo bravo , honest and con
sistent. If these frauds about which repub-
ieaim have so much talked exist ho could
lot conceive that a republican would upon
my pretext glvo his support to the bill under
llseii'-slon. Not a man iu the house is there ,
10 said , but that kno\vsjthat election frauds ,

shown by congressional investigation and
courts , was conclusive unit showed
vhy the democrats were oppos-

The democrats hung their heads In shame as
iroof after proof was brought forward illus-
rating the universality 'of election frauds.
Juoting from the speech of Mr. Hemphlll of
south Carolina , givcil In these dispatches
nst night , ho said that there could be no but-
er proof offered than that the democrats of
South Carolina did not Intend to suffer the
iluolc man to oxerclso the rights given him
> y the constitution of the United States. It
vas defiance of the constitution the same us
iy armed revolutionists ,
While Mr. MoAdoo of New Jersey was
peaking he was confronted with many cm-
urrassing questions. Ho denounced the
neasuro with all the vehemence of a northern
lemocrutic demagogue. Sixty-six democrats
vero indicted in Mr. MoAdoo's state for
'mud at the hist congressional election. Two
luvo been tried and sent to the penitentiary ,
low many moro wfll go to prison lor election
rimes only the trials will -dlsclobe. It will
hus bo seen that this election bill Is u very

ITS ADDITION ASSt'llKD.
The action of the house yesterday in rcccd
ing from its disagreement to the sonata
amendment providing for an increase of the
salary of the commissioner and assistant com
mlslsoner of "tlio general land ollico iissurei
the adoption of Senator Paddock's amendment
mont to that effect. It may therefore be con
sidercd practically a law. At the be
ginning of the session Senator Paddock inj
traduced u bill to Increase the elllcieney oi
the general land ollleo , which provided for a
somewhat extensive reorganisation and read
justment of the forces. Finding that it
would bo difficult to secure an early passage
of this bill through both houses after a pro
tracted struggle In the senate , the sonutoi
quietly dropped his bill and took the moro
rapid method of preparing and offering an
amendment to the legislature appropriat
ing bill , which carried into effect mosl
of the features of tlio bill itself. Tlio amend
ment has now been concurred In by bcth
house.s ; It increases tlio salary of the com
missioner of tlio general land oftlco from
$1,000 to W.OOO. of the assistant commissioner
from $3,000 to si.WO and raises the salary of
the three principal clerks of tlio general land
ofllco from $ tSOO to $ a,000 , while at the same
time providing eight chiefs of divisions in the
land olllco at the same salary. These chiefs
of divisions are the principal clerks in the
general hind oftlco and the effect of the new
legislation will bo to slightly increase their
salary and to take them out from under the
oper ationof the civil service rules.
Judge Groff thoroughly endorses Senator
Padaock's plan of the reorganization of the
land ofllco and is greatly pleased at the re
sult. Ho o certainly cannot but feel highly
complimented by tlio universal commenda
tion bestowed upon his administration of the
land ollleo by speakers on both sides of the
house and from both political parties yester
day. Judge Payson , the chairman of the
house committee on public lands , delivered
an eulogy on Judge Groff as a tmblic ofllcer
which is probably without parallel in tlio his
tory of recent debate in the house. Ho said
that experience had demonstrated the
wisdom of President Harrison's judg
ment in the .selection of a commis
sioner who was a courteous gentleman ,
energetic , full of western push and executive
force , industrious , whilst with a record of
work which shows careful and conscientious
exertions. He characterized him as a lawyer
of eminence , bringing with him a reputation
asn Judge which has been fully sustained by
his decisions in numerous and important cases.
as ho ( Judge Payson ) porsolmlly knew now of
his record rendered since he lias been in office.
Judge Paysoti stated that his partiality for
him was not expressed because of a personal
friendship , although ho was glad to number
Judge GrotI among those to whom ho was
warmly attached , out'thatr ho g\xvo \ hH en

understood that at present there will , bo few
changes in the force of the senate. On a fair
distribution of patronage each senator would
bo entitled to ? 'J00 : ! a year in annual sal
aries , including messengers and vari

senator has at present a material increase
over these figures. Colorado is at present
credited with two messengers at $11 10 a year
each , ono employe of tlio folding room at
$ l,0'.i"i and ono employe on the laborers' roll
at $ rae , a total of only a little less than $5,000

UNION I-ACinO LAND I'ATKXTS.
Secretary Noble today replied to the reso-
ution of Senator Plumb under datoofDu-
-embei-at , which called upon the Interior de-
Mirtment to report the cause for the wlth-
loldlng of patents within the limits of the
grants of the Union Pacific railway company
vhich are free from claims. There has been
i strong pressure brought to bear upon the
nterior department from hundreds of settlers
vim years ago purchased lands from llio
Julon Pacific railway comiMiiy and who
uivo not yet received patents for the com-
iletton of their titles to these lands. There
las also been great complaint from tlio
talcs ol Kansas and Nebraska owing to tlio
vithholding of the p'ltents and the railroad
ompuny and the purchasers under them
lave been enabled to escape state taxation.
Senator Paddock of- Nebraska has three
lines called upon the pi-o.ildr.nt and urged
i settlement of the question and the senator
las also called the attention of the chief oxee-
tlvu and secretary of the interior to the mat
er. In Ids reply Secretary Noble stutes that
ho delay in making a response has been duo
o very important questions connected with
ho right of the Union Pacific railroad to
amis claimed by it under Its grant , The per-
! cptlon of these difllcultles , SH.VH the bccro-
ary , Is not of recent origin. Daring the last
dmlnlstton lists involving thousands of ucron
f those lands were applied for bv the rall-
oed company , were duly considered and
signed by the proper clerks in tlio land olllco ,
approved by the commissioner and ordered to
patent by Uie secretary. Indeed , a latent for
pirt : of those lands was duly executed on
April a.i , ItoT , by President Cleveland for
'Wl.V.i'J UCIVM , but- was suspended before re-
cordinir. In cases when1 patents were not ex
ecuted the lists W'Tc ' siinp.-ndi-1 mid have
MI remained until 'the time of Hie
present dueislun It thus appears that imt
onlv was it deemed b > the previnun adminis
tration that the I'm.in piii'ilkruilruad com
pany uudunicU ( UtltJ tv IU luuUv iu
and Nebraska , but the right thereto had been
acknowledged by the commissioner of the
general land office and the secretary of the In
terior. This action was acquiesced In bv the
then President Cleveland. But at this Junc
ture a letter was received at the
nterior department from the Pacific
railroad commission , organised under
the net of March , 1SS7 , making inquiries us to
the 1 sue of these patents pending the exam
ination into the Indebtedness of the railroad
company to the United States , and the pros- !
dent. In transmitting ttio report of the com
mission , said : "The executive power must
be exorcised according to existing laws and
the executive discretion Is not probably broad
enough to feuch such a diniculty , yet the Fif
tieth congress , to whom this nuns-life was di
rected , adjourned without enacting unv
further legislation. The subject has now re
ceived sufficient notice and tlio conclusion has
been rouchod that the indebtedness of the
railroad company to the United States does
not authori/o this department to withhold
lands irranled to the company and for which
lists have been filed. No reason is deemed to
exist why the secretary should not
proceed to deliver to the Union Pa-
clllo company hinds which have been
earned , and It is his Intention to
certify those lists , commenelt.g at the eastern
portion of the unpatented lands In Kansas
and Nebraska where the lands are agricul
tural and have been sold and are In use bv
actual settlers. The patents executed al
ready by the previous executive will lie re
corded. Patents will ba Issued on the lists
approved by the former secretary and lists
not yet approved will bo examined in duo
order. This conclusion , I will add. Is in ac
cordance with the recommendation of the
commissioner of tlio general land office and
also witli tlio opinion of the assistant attor
ney general assigned to this department.

Tlio democrats arc capitulating on the
national election bill. They have proposed to
the republicans in the senate that they will
co-operate to bring about prompt action on
the silver , tariff , appropriation and other
general bills so as to bring about an adjourn
ment of congress before the end of July pro
vided the republicans will not ask to ta'ko up
the elections bill at this session mid permit
it to lie over in the senate committee. Ke-
publican senators have been telegraphed to
bo hero the first of next week for a confer
ence , when the proposition will bo consid
ered. It has been tlu ! purpo.io to take up tlio
election bill on Monday and when the elec
tions bill is reported from the senate commit
tee , lay aside the tariff bill and give the
former precedence.
coNriuiis : : : ONIIII : Htt.vr.it HIM , .
Both conference committees have now been
appointed on the silver bill. The house com
mittee , consisting of Kcprosontatives Conger ,
Walker of Massachusetts and Bland were
named by Speaker Heed shortly before ad
journment , last evening. This morning the
vice president named as the senate conferees
Senators Sherman , Jones of Nevada and
Harris. The delay In the appointment , as
wired last evening , was duo to the decision
on the part of the speaker and vice president
to select representatives and senators who
would meet till the requirements of a com
promise. It is believed that the selections
made are on this line. Representative
Conger , who was tlio champion of the house
measure , is understood to bo willing to re
cede from his advocacy of tlio bullion
redemption feature under pressure from
the senate. While ho insists that
the iiou.se 1)111 ) as originally passed would
have filled all the requirement of the situa
tion , ho now announces himself as prognrcd
to meet , the free coinage sentiment at least
half way and to provide fora bill whicli will
absorb the entire product of the American
mines. Kopresentativo Walker of Massachu
setts Is a well known monomctalllst. He is
present absent from the city , but is expected
to return early in the coming week. His
friends , however , state that tic will not be
found In the Way of liberal legislation as long
as It stops short of nbsoluto and unlimited
.coinage. The position of Hopresontu-
tlvo . Blund , of , , , Missquri ls .j too
well known to' require " iromiricntsT' '
On the side of the senate Senators Jones and
Harris will control. Senator Harris is even
more radical in his vlows on the silver ques
tion than Senator Jones. When the bill was
under discussion in the senate he opposed the
issue of certificates on constitutional
grounds , believing that all bullion
should bo coined and should not
bo represented by any substitute for
mere convenience sake. Senator Jones ,
while openly in favor of unlimited coinage ,
believes that a measure- which will provide
for the purchase of - tr > 00omJouiiees ' ol silver
a month upon whieli certificates shall bo is-
sued redeemable in coin or lawful money ,
will be temporarily at least a satisfactory so
lution of llio problem. The position of
Senator Sherman is not so well defined. His
attitude in debute is bettor known. There is
a general belief , however , that he will not
use his efforts for a measure which will se
cure executive approval and afford relief to
the country.
Senator Teller this evening said : "I have
no doubt of results. The conference com
mittee will in my judgment agree promptly
upon a measure whicli will provide fol-
the purehaso of either Slr > 00,000
worth of bullion or preferable l'i)0)0 ( ) ( ) ( )
ounces. I am confident that tlio lat
ter proposition will meet approval. The cer
tificates to bo issued upon the bullion pur
chased must be redeemable in lawful money ,
and I am sure that the senate conferees wfll
not recede from their position. If they do
there will bo trouble in the senate. "
