[ New York Herald Cable Special to Tin : HUE. ] Another cold snap opened the week , which gave us three more days of skating , but once again wet , mild weather set in. The feature of the week has been the onslaught made upon the social istic party In the Kelchstag , which , without loubt. suffered severely in the hands of tferren Klchtcr and Sttiscliter. Klchter's subtle oratory backed by Ktcucher's trip hammer blows seemed to stagger even liebel. 1 have rarely seen the Kelehstug so excited. The socialist members In 110 loft corner of the house were qjlvering with rage as lOugeno Kichter poured hot shot in upon their most vital jirecepts. Hebe ) , alert and keen as an eagle , vatching for any weakness in tlio ut- vuck , kept interrupting until the presi dent requested him to desist , whilst cries and counter-cries nil over the \ouso showed bow Intense the feel- , ng was. All this display of feeling : ecmod not to disconcert the speaker , but to irgo him on. He denounced the socialists . * ! > having no policy , not being trim friends o the worklngman , being mere revolution ists and anti-patriots. Never had the so- lalists been so smitten. Members of the government party rubbed their Irinds from 'atisfuetion , while the veteran -Liebknecht , Vnthor of the socialist party , growled and shook his rugged locks In linger. Even in the reporters' gallery the excitement ex tended , so that the president looked up sternly to repress the noise. All over the house the guardians had been i doubled ; why. it is difficult to say. unless the government anticipated a hand-to-hand en counter or n public demonstration , for the galleries were crammed with socialists. Ui'Miiii'rlit Defend * HIM 1'iii-ly. I met Herr Liobknccht m'tho corridor. He had Just made an effective speech in behalf f of his party. From within the chamber echoed the sounds of cheers and counter cheers , murmurs and Interruptions as Lieb- knccht paced up and down witli lire In his eyes. "Whot do you say about the charges brought against your party ! " I asked him. "They say you tire discredited and have no policy. " Llebknecht gave n shrug of impatience and said with emphatic vehemence : "I tell you this , that the socialist is the only party In the house which has clearly outlined its policy , and that is the reason of its success. What is there in these attacks 1 Nothing but that which will benefit us. They have brought up a lot of venerable charges ' , which were inndo against us twenty-live years ngo , and then by us refuted , as I have just told them to their faces in the chamber. They have learned nothing and forgotten nothing in the past twenty-live years. " "Don't you look u | n this dobatoas defeat for the socialistic party ! " "Not nt all. 1 look upon it as the. destruc tion of the moral conscience of our attackers. Wo are pleased at these attacks , and wo Bhall use their words against our opponents nt the next elections , and they will bo of much utility to us. " "What reason wis there for the debate ! " To Divert PuMlo Opinion. 'Noun at all that Is good. It was merely n blind , an attempt to throw dust into the eyes of the people , who are getting very im patient over the military bill. The- military bill should , according to the will of the people ple , huvo been ejected at once , bat the cen i- ter party has been dickering with tlio ques tion , seeking to obtain advantage to Itself at , the price of a compromise The people got impatient at these tactics , so , In order to di i- vert their attention the old time cry of revolution Is raised , and that Is the reasjn why this debate has been brought forward. " Hero you hnvo the socialist side of the question , but the general opinion and the view taken by the press , with the exception of the socialist organs , Is tnat the socialists have been badly mauled. Nut Kmieelrtlly I'rlendly. t How much good the ezarowltch's visit hero accomplished Is still the paramount quoa- tloii. Certainly Germany has made the most cordial advances , but Knssh .seems to wish to follow ICnxland's successful ) H > lcy ! of strict Independence , for wo look in vain for any Inspired Germanic leaders in thu Russian press , The news I gave you some time ago that * the Russian government hud decided to close the lust of the German schools In Baltic provinces Is confirmed bj the Kroneel - tung. The school Is ut Goldlngcn , which was formerly a great German center. LliI hear further tint the czar has a scheme erIn the wholesale confiscation of properties in the Halkan provinces , which belonged to old aristocracy , and whoso right of tenure is doubtful. This would come as a severe blow to many German families , whoso connec ' tions hold these lands. The pretext for con fiscating these lands is they were lent , not given. llefttilt of Ne > v pupi'r Comment. The greatest changes have occurred dur ing the past few days with reference to the mission of General von Lee to the Vatican. Italian papers have nipped In the bud what might have been the inauguration of an en tirely new | K > liey between Germ my and the Vatican. Their too open comments on the mission having a political aspect has caused Ire in the highest quarters hero , result- rug In instructions that the gen eral shall merely act us an ordi nary bearer of congratulations und carefully refrain from any jwllticul refer ences. At ono moment it was rumored the mission blood in risk of being entirely Abandoned , and now I hear there will prot > - by ) be 110 presents , The Vatican hu cer- tainly cut the ground from under itsown feet In this matter. There Is talk of n Jewish party to be created In the Hclchstag nfter the model of the Cathollccenter , the Idea being to protect the Interest of the 000,000 Jews inhabiting Germany. At the head of the movement stand Dr. IIIrni.li Hlldcsholmcr and Dr. Kaffacl r/ocvcnfcld , but many Influential Semites an ; strongly against , the Idea which will probably come to nothing. -Nut frightened Nor Angry , It has been stated that the czar has com plained of tin1 report of .his nsstsslnation , which was circulated here. Such Is not the case. According to the Kusslan embassy here , thocvarln reply to General von Word- er's expressions of regret on the part of the kaiser , said : "I was not In the least disturbed alnnit It. " The report has gone out that the czar has promised to visit Herlin. That is untrue , the nearest thing to it being a line In n let ter which ho wrote to the kaiser , thanking him for the cordial welcome accorded the czuruwith , saying : "I hope to see your majesty 1 soon. " 1f The police hero are actively looking out for Arton , who , according to the latest news , Is i at Hamburg , hoping to take -a steamer thence to America. The international cholera congress will commence at Dresden on the "Oth of this month , according to the present arrange I ments. KuKso-Ceriiinii Iteclprcielty. The Kusslan commissioners will be hero next week to make arrangements of final details for the new Russian commercial treaty. I have seen the general heads , which are : Germany permits the entry of Kussian corn and cattle , and In return Russia gives facilities for the importation of German coal and iron and agricultural machinery. Ger man agriculturists , who are already in bad condition , an1 trying their utmost to oppose the treaty , but the kaiser is determined to crush opposition , as he regards the treaty as I helping ] thu German-Russian friendly feel | ing. ] Towards Italy the feeling has very much cooled here , later , and there are those about the court now who openly talk of the meet ing of the three emperors as the basis of a new alliance or "drei kaiser bund , " in which KiHsia would replace Italy. Once again in the Wilhelm strasso the belief reigns that Germany has too many Irons In ttie tire , as was the case in the days of Bismarck. Kalnoky Is credited as being stronglyin favor of such an alliance , but there Is the pan- slavist press to bo reckoned with , although much is thought hero of General von Werder's influence , hut General von Werder is mure a friend to the czar than a skilled diplomat.

Dr. Kempster , n special health officer of the United States , who has Just arrived from a tour of inspection of Hum- burg , Bremen , Cassel and Nietelben , said that he was convinced that the present year would witness u fierce outburst of cholera all over the continent and that , instead of being sporadic , as In 18W , the plague would sweep tlie whole of Kurope. In a certain largo town , the name of which ho desired to reserve for his official report , ho asked the local health onicer to take him to the worst street. "Thcro is none , " said the officer ' every slum and fever hole has been cleared out. " Dr. Kempster then took the oflleer ton certain back alley , the sight and smell o which made both of them retreat with hand kerchiefs to their noses. Ho afterward of feivd to show the officer a half a domn places of the samu'sort in the vicinity , Dr. Kempster also noted the discrepancies between the published report of mortality ifrom cholera and the number of cases regls- tered on government records. In ono towr the local liealth onicer. told him that the itotal number of cases was thirty-eight , but stho official record showed 7S'J cases , of which ! ! . cases had been fatal. The towns alluded to were not in Gcrnnny , but prob- ably in Kiib.ila. A Bremen lighterman and his assistant died of cholera aboard their boatwhile lying olT the city. Tlio boat was sent to Hum- burg , no one in Bremen , as far as known , j having boarded it or come in contact with it. j | Several days afterward a widow and hel daughter , living at the riverside , died of Asiatic cholera. Tin series of infection of these cases could not bo traced until Dr. Kempster , co-operating with a Hamburg officer , proved th.it the widow had washed some clothes from the ligtiter boat. Regarding nigs Imported into the United States from infected ports , Dr. ICompster is inclined to agree with the suggestion of Consul General Edwards that disinfection on arrival in thu United States would bo surer and more effective than mere disinfection I before shipment , | l l > ( iltiss : OI'YlIK AllMV HIM. .

[ New York Herald Cable Special to Tun BUB.Readers ! of the Herald have perhaps forgotten my prediction that the situation of Kuropo would change ilnring the time necessary for the settlement of the Panama affairs. The prediction has been strangely realized , and great changes iiro in preparation on the European chess hoard. There is a marked cooling off in the rela tions between Russia and Germany. The efforts to bring about a fresh understanding between the three emperors , which com menced with the visit of the czarewltch to Vienna , where certain results were ob tained , were , continued during his rcoont journey to Berlin. Nothing has been done up to the present and it Is probable nothing will result from the attempt , but Russia , having given Berlin to understand that she had no antipathy to Germany , was a point gained. Russia thus becomes the arbitrator of the international situation , playing with Franco and Germany the same game that Bismarck did so long with Austria and Russia , using ono in order to obtain concessions from the other. But the czar is too honest and straightforward to play this game long. Ho will not sign any political treaty with Ger many ; the most will be a commercial treaty. No treaty exists with France , either nothing further than a military convention , which was the work of Mm. Ribot , do Freyeinot and do Glers at Aix last year. Naturally nobody has read the treaty , but it appears probable that Hussia has taken an engage ment to do nothing more than mobilize 000- 000 men on the frontier in case of war be tween Franco and Germany. The hypothesis of n war now may bo sot aside , for the internal situation of Franco is still very intricate. Wo shall not be able to Improve ] It except by a dissolution of the Chamber ( , and if the elections tnko place ba- fore j the termination of the Panama business nine-tenths t of the present deputies will not bo re-elected. Men of nil parties demand the pardon of Ferdinand do Lessops , whoso condemnation has produced the worst possible effect even amongst the popular classes. JACQUES ST. CCHE. MONKY AND .STOCKS.

[ Now York Herald Cable Special to Tin : BUB. ] As usual on Saturday , business has been very quiet In the Stock exchange and the markets pre sented few features of Interest. Consols close unchanged and Indian rupee paper one- eighth easier , owing to a slight fall in the price of silver. Foreign government securi ties close fairly strong , but international stocks have moved to a very small extent , except Greek bonds , which advanced three- fourths to one. Among South American stocks the feature is the rise of one-half to three-fourths in Brazilian bonds , duo to exchange - change advancing to IH.-j. ' Argentine stocks are unchanged. Homo railways close tolerably firm. Americans opened flat und lower in re sponse to the fall in Now York. However , a better tendency soon set in and some degree of strength was observed at the close. A fractional Improvement marked Atchtson , Central Pacific , Denver preference , Missouri , Kansas & Texas and Ohio & Mississippi , while a few others still show n decline of one- eighth to one-fourth. Canadians met with little attention. Mexican second preference is one-fourth lower. Money is Httlo wanted , short loans being * freelyoffered at three-fourths of 1 to 1 per cent. The discount market is quiet , two and three months' bills being quoted at.l'j to 1 5-10 per cent. AMiitM'AXS IN NOVA SCOTIA. Their Aeiiilrement | of Coal Property Incites Opposition In llulir.lT.

Kferring to the acquisition of the Nova Scotia coal mines by an American syndicate , the Empire , govern ment organsays : "The iniquitous legislation by the Nova fieotia government in the matter of the coal monopoly is altogether base. Great Britain has fortified Halifax harbor , spending enor mous wealth to make It the strongest ono in the world , not oven excluding Glbralter. This had been done to nmko ' .mpregnublo the coaling station of Great Britain on this side of the Atlantic. Take the coal out and Halifax harbor would hardly bo worth holding. It would become a refuge for American supplies , "Tho possibility of tlu syndicate having It made worth their while to flro every ono of their miners in an emergency that might easily arise , need not bo dilated upon. Tlio entire British north Atlantic squadron could bo placed at the mercy of these for eign capitalists. It was this consideration that led n party of conservative members of the house to wait upon the governor gen eral.

Ho inatlo a long und effective response to an amendment offered by Itt. Hon. J. Loivthcr asking fern bill to restrict the immigration of destitute aliens. Mr. Gladstone argued that Great Britain exported more working people than It im ported , and that any restriction would afford an excuse for other , nations to stop the entrance of British Immigrants to their dominions. Still , Mr.Gludstone , added , the government was willing to grant a commis sion of inquiry on the subject.

Whi'ii tlio Disaster Occurred , The Pomeranian is at present lying out side the harbor at Greenoek. A strong northwest gale is blowing , which renders it dangerous for small boats to approach her. It has been learned , however , that the disaster occurred when the ship was about 1Ir > 0 miles out. The Pomeranian encoun tered boisterous weather immediately after leaving iwrt. Jt was thought that the wind would soon blow itself out and , with every thing shipshape , no fears for the stgutncr wcro ontcrtainetl. Instead of abating , how ever , the gale increased in severity until the day of the disaster. , - , The 4lh of February dawned with a fright ful gale raging and a tremendously high sea running. Tlio hatches were battened down and covered with tarpaulins , ventilators were turned to leeward und every pre caution dictated by gaod seamanship had been taken to prevent water getting below. This appeared to the officers to bo the great est danger , as they hud no doubt us to the steamer's ability to ride out the storm. lloirdcd : by : i ( < iiiitlo | Sen. Several seas had been shipped , but they did no damage. Suddenly u tremendous wave reared its crest a short distance ahead of the steamer , us she plunged down into the trough of the sea. Before she could rise the sea came over the starboard bow and tons of green water rushed aft. Almost at the same time a wave astern pooped the steamer. The result almost defies description. The decks , saloon , chart house , bridge and bouts were smashed to pieces ana partly washed overboard. The deck was covered with an almost inextricable mass of wreckage and the utmost confusion reigned. At first the full extent of the disaster was not known. The steamer began toT'puy off before the wind and sea and it was at once seen that the quartermaster had been carried away. Two sailors sprang to the wheel and soon put the steamer on her course. Then It was found that Cap tain Dalzlol , the master of the steamer , was missing. Ho had been last seen standing on the leo side of the steamer abaft the saloon in conversation with a saloon passenger named John Stewart , a resident of Glas gow. They had both been caught by the sea that broke over the stern and been dashed against the deck house , when they wcro carried and Jammed beneath the after-steam winches. Captain Diil/.lol l'ntilly : Hurt. Captain Dalzlel's legs were broken and ho had sustained internal injuries. Ho was carefully removed to his room and ovcry- thing possible was done for him , but he died the next morning. Mr. Stewart's legs were also broken and ho sustained other injuries , from the effects of which ho died in a few hours. At the time of the accident the second oflleer. John Cook , had charge of the watch. Ho was on the bridge with John Hamilton , the fourth onicer , and both were carried overboard und drowned. In the saloon deck house , when the sea broke over the steamer , were James Gibson and Lillian Gibson of Dalkeith and .lano ' Caff ivy of Londonderry , all llrst cabin pas sengers. They wcro carried over the side and not afterwards seen. David Forbes of Dundee , a second cabin ' ! I passenger , and James Prltciiard and Fred Westbury , stewards , were also lost In the same manner. . It Is supposed that Pritchard and West- bury were engaged in attending to the wants of the passengers in the saloon deck house when the structure was washed away. This made the number of those curried overboard ten , with the two others fatally injured. When tho'sea boarded the steamer every man about the deck who saw it coming grabbed hold of stanchions or anything clso convenient , and it was duo to this that the [ loss of life was.not much larger. Uoiiatern.itIon Prevailed. For a time the utmost consternation prevailed - vailed , but this gave way to a feeling of sad ness when it was found that so many fives had been lost. Tlie disaster occurred so sud denly and UIP sea did its fatal work with i silch rapidity that the survivors did I not at first realize the extent of the misfor tune. Amid the howling of the wind and the hissing and roaring of the sea the cries of these who were carried overboard could not have been heard , even had they had time to utter them. Without a word of warning they wcro swept to their doom , und not u person on the steamer knew what Had hap- THE BEE BULLETIN. n'tatlitrfiir Ownftii ami Vicinity I'lilr ; iruimtr ; i > 'iml/ir/Itf / ll'lmfo. \me , I.

With Captain Dab.iel fatally injured and unconscious In his cabin , the command of the steamer devolved on the llrst ofiieer. The steamer was about In midoceaii. and the luostion arose in his mind what course to pursue whether to hold the steamer on her course or to put about and make for ilreo- nock. When the chart room was carried away the charts , sextants and quadrants , in fact everything absolutely essential to the navigation of the ship , went with it. The hinnaclo box and its compass bridge had also gone overboard , and had it not been that the after compass remained it is doubt ful If the steamer would have reached port for many days yet. Derided to Itetimi , The situatioifof affairs on the steamer , it is almost needless to say , was terrible. The first oflleer called the remaining officers to a consultation and it was decided to put about anil return to Greenoek. This was at once done , and without any instruments with which . to take observations , the voyage had to bo inado entirely by dead reckoning , and was , therefore , necessarily slow. The llrst officer is highly commended for his skillful seamanship in navigating under such adverse - verso circumstances , and it Is highly proba ble that his ability will bo recognized in a substantial manner by the owners of the steamer niut underwriters. Arrived lit ( .linginv. The Pomeranian has arrived in Glasgow. The disaster occurred February ! . ' The waves swept over the deck from stem to stern and flooded the passenger cabins. Thcro was no panic , and the crew had every thing snug before dark , Tim gale continued to rage with fury until Wednesday last. Thursday the weather again became stormy and gradually rose to n hurricane. Innis- trahull light oft the most northerly part of the Irish coast was sighted on Thursday evening and the position of the vessel ascer tained. Owing to the terrible weather it was necessary to He to until Friday , and then the Pomeranian was steered for Green oek. oek.Tho The scene at the burial of Captain Dalx.iel was ono of the saddest ever witnessed at sea. The captain breathed his lust on Sun day morning and at midday his body was committed to the waves. Veteran sailors -vho were on board declare that in their expe'lenco of thirty years the storm was the worst they had ever en countered. If the ship had not been staunch and the discipline good , she would have foundered. r'ureed to Iletnrn. ' Purser Lowe was asked , in an Interview , why the vessel did not continue on its voy age westward. Ho replied that had not the surviving officers decided to return , none would have been left to tell the talo. Ono heavy sea , ho stated , carried away the two quartermasters from the wheel ; swept uwuy the charts and compasses , und disabled the steering apparatus. The Pomeranian then wung her head around , and the officers saw no alternative but to keep on her course. The deck saloon was swept away by n big sea , leaving a gap through which volumes of water poured from the deck , through the cabins and the saloon. The crew and pas- iCngers worked heroically in repairing the damage , though expecting every moment that tlio vessel would founder. The interiorof the Pomeranian is badly ilamaged. and will require extensive repairs. IJNDKIt TONS < ) ! ' ItOCK. Seven Mini Killed In 11 Vermont Oiuirry unit Nine Injured. Ki'Ti.ANi ) , Vt. , Fob. U.

[ Special Telegram to Tin : Hue. ] Officers of the Union Paclllo railway think that the arrest of A. 11. Wal ters , a freight conductor on their Hue , will put a stop to the operations of a gang which in two years has robbed the company of $ HO- 000 worth of merchandise. Walters , whose run is between Hntto and Lima , Mont. , was in Chicigo ostensibly on a visit to relatives. The company learned that stolen goods were being shipped to him , and Detectives Collins and Norton were detailed . ' tailed on the case. The goods came to the American Kxpress company , but Walter1 did not call for them. lie was captured while trying to sell a quantity of cigars to a Division street deuletf and he broke down and confessed. He gave W. T. Canada , chief detective of the railway company , the names of twenty employes of the road , who , he alleges , have been breaking open box cars anil stealing their contents. OiuTthousuml dollars \\orth of stol en goods , shipped hero to Walters , and not disposed of , were recovered , and the location of $10,000 worth more were discov ered. Walters was taken to Omaha tonight. Wiis Visiting Hit Mother. Walters , four weeks ago obtained a fur lough and came to this city , ostensibly to visit his mother , wlio lives on West Divi sion street. 1'ho police hero were detailed to locate Walters. The goods were eon- signed to the American Express company , but the man who received them did not correspond to the description sent oy the company's officers. After a ' week's search the detersives located Walters. His connection with the robbery was not discovered until todaj'i when Officer Norton , was shadowing Walters and detected him trying to sell a quantity of cigars to a West Division street merchant , The man was at once arrested and taken to the central station , where he confessed that ho had been systematically stealing from.tha railroad company for two years. Detective Canada said that a gang had been robbing the Union Pacific freight curs of merchandise for about two years , und selling the same to merchants in Hntto and Lima and other small towns in Montana , MOSTLY Otrr.SIDKUS. r MeiulierN of the ( inn ) ; Aru Known and Are ' Not All Iliillrouili-rM. The fact that an organized gang of car thieves was operating : on their line is by no means news to Union Paclllo officers. It will bo remembered that about six months ago the company arrested a gang "working" In the vicinity of Grand Island and secured several convictions. The stealing then eased , and for a few months freight In transit was not disturbed. Within the past six or eight weeks , however , operations wcra ; again resumed and thousands of dollars worth of property has been stolen. The greatest losses are reported In trans- ontinental freight and freight gointr over the mountain routes to tlio far west. The laxity of conductors in looking for broken seals on freight car doors has been purtlcu- arly noticeable in the west. The dispatch was shown a Union Paeiflo ofticial and bo said : "In the main the facts lire correct. Canada went to Chicago for the purpose of getting hold of some of the men , implicated. However , no wholesale arrest of conductors Is to bo made. Possibly In vestlgation may implicate three or four , but the remainder of the gang will bo found oto bo outside parties ana not employes of the road. Wo have been missing goods for some time past , but I cannot give anything like the value of the stolen property. The coup was not In tended to occur until Friday next , but I pre sume that as the papers have got hold of It it may as well bo given publicity now. Out siders are doing the great share of the stealing and u vigorous prosecution will follow. I think wo know them all. " reiiimyUiinlii'ii Original Churter. PniLAur.i.i'iitA , Pa. , Fob , II.
