LONDON , March 26. ( New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram. ) After the
facts concerning a serious political move
ment behind Prlnco Henry of Orleans were
published In a newspaper ot another con
tinent , 3,000 miles away , they reappear In the
Paris and London newspapers. M. do Blowltz
makea them the subject of a long dispatch
In the London Times. While the veteran oh-
oorver agrees with my own views , as ex-
prcs33d In the World's cable , that the move
ment Is likely to fall , ho treats It as a matter
for the most Important concern to the whole
world , because of Its momentous position.
My own Informant , evm a more shrewd
nnd cynical student of French character and
L hlttory than la the famous Journalist named ,
eald In answer to my own protests against
the possible success of the program ho out
lined to me ; "It Is precisely the Impossible
which ID most likely to occur In Franco , and
particularly In Paris. "
It will bo at least a remarkable Incident
In history should this movement end In
another coup d'etat , another emperor , pos
sibly another reign of terror , that the com

iX\t. \
iXt.M. . do Blowltz begins his telegram to the
Tlmca with the same doubts , touching cither
the present favorable conditions of affairs
In Franco for such revolution or the ability
of the young prince to engineer It , which
were expressed In my dispatch to the World ,
but ho adds :
COMING OUT OF CILAOS.
"I am beginning to believe that. If the
prince la not ruminating any such Idcae ,
there Is forming around him out of the con
stantly fermenting pi ess of Boulanglsm , out
of the league of patriots , out of the great
floating class of the merely dissatisfied , the
ambitious and the u'eclas es the nucleus of

"Tho prince has the ambition of youth ,
lie Is not heir to the throne , and ho docs not
choose to suffer as such. Ho claims his
place In the sunshine. As always happens
to men of hltl rank , he allows others to direct
him. and all that ho can be reproached with
Is that the direction does not seem to dls- _
please him. At Saturday's banquet , where
Boulanglsm se mcd the dominant note , he
quoted , or rather travestied , his grandfather's

made to follow , the usual devious path of
prottndcrs. who throw themselves Into thu

the wedding night.
"Ho apologizes for being a prince , which ,
Indeed , Is no fault of his and swears pas

LONDON , March 26. A special dispatch
from Cairo pays that the French and Rus
sian members ot the Egyptian debt commis
sion left the meeting today after protesting
against the use of the reserve fund for the
purposes ot the British-Egyptian expedition
up the Nile. The English , German , Italian
and Austrian members ot the commission
voted to n-lvanco the money , required. The
Russian and French members voted against
the proposition ,
Directly the action of the majority of the
commissioners became known , the repre
sentatives of the Par's syndicate of Egypt-
tan bondholders took steps to Institute pro
ceedings before the Egyptian mixed tribunal
against the debt commissioners and the min
isters responsible for the reserve fund.
The question of the reported proteat of the
Turkish government against the British-
Egyptian expedition up the Nile was taken
up In the House of Commons today. The
under secretary of state for foreign affairs ,
Mr. George Curzon , raid that It was true that
the sultan bad made Inquiries as to the
nature of the expedition to Dongola ; but no
protest against It had been made on behalf
of the Turkish government. The necessary
explanations , Mr. Curzon added , were given
to the Turkish ambassador.
Mr. Curzon also said It was true that
Turkey had not been consulted previous to
steps being taken to organize the Nllo ex
pedition , but that nothing was contemplated
In the advance of the troops which was be
yond the power vested In the khedlvc.
Referring to the conflict of opinion which
has arisen regarding the use of the Egyptian
reserve fund , It being claimed In certa'r ;
quarters that a unanimous vote of the debt
commissioners was necessary to use that
money for such purposes ns that of the pro
posed expedition , Mr. Curzon remarked that
thcro were various precedents for asserting
that n majority vote was all that was neces
sary 1n such cases.
A dispatch to the Times from Cairo says
the sultan , having demanded explanations ,
has , elicited from the Egyptian government
the admission that the ultimate object of the
Nile expedition Is the rescue of the Soudan.
A dispatch from Cairo to the Da'ly News
says : It Is reported the Dervishes have
evacuated Saardeh , their extreme northern
outpost.
A Parts dispatch to the Chronicle says :
It Is rumored Baron de Courcel. French
ambassador In London , has been recalled.
GIIAM1I12U VOTES FOR INCOMU TAX.
Details to lie Left for a Committee
to ArraiiKe.
PARIS , March 20. The Chamber of Dep
uties , 286 to 270 , has voted for the govern
ment proposal of an Income tax , but has
referred the details of the schema to a com
mittee. The income tax proposal has been In
tended as the central feature of the plan of
the present government and It has been be
lieved extremely doubtful whether It could
pass tl'ie legislature. The- action tonight Is
IT the nature of a compromise , endorsing
the principle of an Income tax , but throwIng -
Ing aside the details cf the government
t'sheme. According to this scheme Incomes
ot less than 2,500 francs ( $500) ) , were to bo
exempt , and 2,500 trancs was to be deducted
from the assessment of all taxable Incomes.
Up to 5,000 francs the rate of the tax was
fixed at 1 per c < ; nt ; between 5,000 francs and
10,000 francs , nt 2 per cent ; between 10,000
and 20,000 francs ! , at 3 per cent ; between
20,000 and 50,000 francs , 4 per cent ; and
above 50,000 franco , 5 per cont. These pro
gressive rates for the tax were to apply only
to the excess of Incomes over the sum com
ing under the next lower rates ; that IB to
say , a millionaire would have his Income di
vided Into five heads , each taxed at a dif
ferent rate. The abolition of the present
house tax , by which. . It- was calculated that
6,600,000 perrons would escape direct taxa
tion , was also Involved In the scheme , whllo
It was estimated that the new law would
apply to 1,500,000 persons , two-thirds of
whom would pay less than they have been
paying under the house tax.

LONDON , March 26. It has been learned
by the Associated press that the British
chambers of commerce are bringing strong
pressure upon the government for some ac
tion to protect British Interests In Mada
gascar , In view of the decision of France to
terminate existing treaties made by Mada
gascar with other powers , without the leave
of the powers concerned. It Is suggested
that the government come to an agreement
for an entente with the United States , and
make Joint representations to France , In
view of the extent of American Interests af
fected by the setting aside of the American
treaty with Madagascar In 1881. The cham
bers ot commerce have pointed out that
Franca contends that the French position
In Madagascar Is neither annexation , nor a
protectorate , but something midway between
those two. Franco taking over the direction
of foreign affairs. Thus the chambers argue
she Is bound to assume all obligations , es
pecially those secured by treaty. The gov
ernment has not yet been officially notified of
Franco's action , but the chambers of com-
nierco hive been satisfied that the Govern
ment will not remain quiescent , and there
Is a possibility of un entente with the
United States on this subject.

HAVANA , March 20. The column of
troops commanded by Colonel Pavla has been
engaged with Insurgent cavalry numbering
about 1.000 men , under the leadership of
Lacret , at the plantation of San Joaquln.
The Spanish cavalry charged the enemy and
the latter retreated toward the Gran Clcnaga ,
south of Matanzas , leaving fifteen killed on
the field. Among the latter were three offi
cers. The troops also captured a quantity of
arms and ammunition and camp equipments.
The columns ot troopa commanded by
Colonel Sanchez have captured the camps of
the Insurgents at Cherlto and Santa Mon-
Itcca , province of Plnar del Rio , and In to
doing r.re tald to have obtained possession
of nearly all the supplies of the Insurgents In
that province. The stores were In charge
of Bermudez , and In the engagements be
tween the troops and the Insurgents , the
latter ! left fifty killed and retired with many
wounded. The troops destroyed the stores
which could not bo made available for the
UTO of the army. A part of the plunder be
longed to Inhabitants of Plnar del Rio , who
had iniffercd at the hands of Macco's raiders.
A quantity of stolen property will , be re
stored to its owners. It Is estimated that
the stores captured were worth over
$200,000.
The public prosecutor at the trial of
Enrique Alcman will ask that the death
penalty bo Imposed.
General Pando has transferred hla hcad-
quartcra to Clenfucgos , province of Santa
Clara. A detachment of Insurgent cavalry
rode Into the city of Santa Clara at mid
night , firing and shouting "All machete. "
The raid caused considerable alarm ; but the
Insurgents were repulsed by the troops
stationed at the theater , after soma fighting
on the Plaza Armas and In the adjoining
streets. The Insurgent leader , Vldal , was
killed , and the enemy retired with many
woundoJ. Sixty-three wounded soldiers have

The Insurgents have burned Playa Jlman-
lllo , Marlanos , a village near Hoyo Colorado ,
some big stables and bouses on the highway
near the right place , the small plantation of
Tobias and the village of Conrecunence , killIng -
Ing three childrenland wounding two others.
The Insurgent leader , An4ceta Fernandez ,
has died of his wounds near Lajos , and his
body was Identified.
It Is believed the movement of the In
surgents ? toward Havana and about the city

troops from the military line near Plnar del
Rio.
Captain General Weyler has once more
Isiuod a proclamation. He .proclaims that
In view of the fact that the Insurgents avoid
engagements , with the troops and devote
themselves entirely to acts of Incendiarism ,
ho has resolved to deal with them as In
cendiaries and bandits , applying the rule set
for them In his former proclamation.
Maceo Is now In the west end of the Island ,
between the west coast and the military line
running through Mnrlel , Majana , Guanajay ,
Artlmesa aud Neptuno. The guardianship
of this line has been entrusted to General
Arolas , who Is riding along It with his chief
of staff and a column of troops numbering
25,000 men. This renders Maceo'e position
very critical , and the Spanish authorities
once more express their confidence that they
have the Insurcents In a trap from which
they cannot escape. Gomez Is at present
near Qulncs , but Is going westward.
The report of the landing of the filibuster
ing steamer Bermuda with an expedition

hasten the solution of the boundary question.
The object cf Captain Irvlng's resolution Is
to take this district Into British Columbia
and govern It from Victoria. Miners would
have to conform to British Columbia mining
laws and take out licenses and the provincial

LONDON , March 26. A Prd'toria dispatch
to the Times says : The situation Is serious.
President Kruger has concluilpd a now of
fensive and defensive alliance with the
Orange Free State. PresMen Stcyn , of the
Orange Free State and the Transvaal execu
tive council , strongly advise P fsldent Kruger
to not go to England. The Transvaal wants
Its Independence guaranteed by England In
connection with the other powers.
The Beers are arming In the Orange Free
State- and Cape Colony. The , Jargo Influx o ?
Germans has been drafted -into the police
force , and the artillery. DrVjW. J. I eyds ,
secretary of state for the Transvaal , who
has been for some time In Germany , has
used the secret service largely to encourage
Immigration from Germany.
The Free State and Afrllcanderbund , has
offered to support the Boers.
An editorial In the Times comments upon
the gravity of the foregoing facts " .which , "
says the Times , "emanate from R trustworthy
private source. If these are true. It Indi

other army corps , It has been decided , la to
bo sent here from Spain In May. It will
consltt of 2,000 Infantry , C.OOO cavalry and
1,000 artillery.
All eyes are turned now toward Plnar del
Rte province. Macco and Qulntln Handera's
forces arc reported , though not officially , to
have received arnis landed by an expedition
( Garcla's ) , nsar Marlel and to have moved
further westward. A great number of Span
ish troops thrown Into that province are
pressing closely on the Insurgents. At least
40,000 Infantry soldiers arc operating against
those- two Insurgent commanders. The coun
try Is favorable for military movements. Sup
plies are forwarded by rail to Artemsla or
Guanajay , and thence over fair roads to the
army , and also by water to sail points.

AUDACITY OF THE REBELS.
The people of Santa Clara City were
awakened on the nleht of March 24 by the
sound of horses tramping In the streets , thn
firing of rifles and cheers for Gomez and
Maceo. It proved that a number of mounted
Insurgents had united at different points and
endeavored to loot the shops. They did not
succeed , because the volunteers prevented
them. About thrty | men rode to the central
plaza , discharging carbines In the air. They
were fired on by the volunteers In the theater
and court house. The affair has no Im
portance other than as an example of
audacity.
The leader of the band , Conclo Vldal. was
killed. Important documents were on his
body.
from the Slguanea valley , In the Trinidad
mountains , comes nn account of a recent
engagement of Colonel Segura with a rebel
group under Alfredo Fego on the Rio Negro.
After some hours of skirmishing Segura cap
tured Fcgo's camp , which had bsen evacu
ated hastily. A hospital and medicines wore
found. It was the permanent headquarters of
Fego. Fourteen Insurgents were killed and
many were wounded. The Spaniards de
stroyed everything in camp and drove off
100 head of cattle that had been collected for
the rebel commlssarist
Colonel Moncada had a slight skirmish
with the followers of Lacret near Ccntabrla.

Nearly every prisoner brought In Is a col

Sixty-four wounded soldiers who fell In the

brought to Havana. That number Is the
total of the wounded In that affair. Instead of
several hundred , as reported from rebel
sources In the United States. One soldier
of the Luchana battalion brought In was
wounded by a bullet which entered at the

skull and brain and lodged In the cerebellum.

CHAMBLRLAIN , S. D. , March 20. ( Spc *
clnl. ) Information from Washington states
that the bill designed to grant' settlers the
right to make second homestead entries , re
cently Introduced In the lower house ot con
gress , Is practically certain to become n law.
The bill was drawn up by John D. Rivers , a
Chamberlain attorney , and will meet with
favor among the settlers of the northwest.
For thn Information of the thousands whom
the bill Is designed to benefit , It can bo
briefly stated that It provides that nny person
who , prior to the pas > 3agc > of the act , having
made a homestead entry , but for any cause
lost or forfeited the same * , or for nny rea
son failed to perfect tliu tltlo to the land em
braced therein , or who , having perfected
such title , did so by what Is known an the
commutation of his homestead entry under
section 2.101 ot the revised statutes ot the
United States , may make a second home
stead entry of not exceeding one-quarter
section of any of the public lands In any
state or territory subject to such entry.
If the bill becomes a law any applicant for
a second homestead entry can make such
entry by properly showing that his former
entry has been lost or forfeited for nny
cause , or Hint he commuted It that Is , paid
so much an acre for the land. Therefore , n
homesteader whoso former entry has been
canceled by the commissioner of the general
land office as the result of contest proceed
ings , can make another entry Instead of los
ing his rights as now. Homesteaders on the
ceded Sioux land , for Instance * , who have al
ready proved up on one-quarter section by
paying the stipulated price of $1.25 or 75
cents per acre as the case may be can , It
the bill becomes a law , make entry ot nn ad
ditional quartc-r-sectlon. It Is estimated that
fully 1,000 persons In the Chamberlain land
district alone would take advantage of the
terms of the bill during the next few months
should It become n law , and hundreds of per
sons In the various land districts of Minnesota
seta , Nebraska and the Dakotas would bo
benefited to an equal degree.

TACOMA , Wash. , March 20. An exciting
scene , which approached a riot , occurred
In the superior court this afternoon. Charles
Barrett and William Morrlssey , who are
wanted In Portland , Ore. , for burglary , had
been released on habeas corpus. A squad
of police was present to roarreat , but Judge
Barker held they could be retaken only after
the Issuance of new warrants. Being free ,
the men rushed tor the stairway. When
Prcsecuto- Davis shouted to the police to
seize them he was opposed by Frank Sninl-
ley , their attorney. The lawyers grappled
and used their fists ; but were finally sep
arated. Chief of Polios Smith ordered his
men to charge on the alleged burglars , which
they did , though this was In conflict with
the court's decision. An officer soon arrived
with warrants from the municipal court ,
charging them with being fugitives from
Justice. The police used their revolvers , and
soon had the men at bay , though neither was
hit. They were caught several blocks from
the court house. Gpvernor Lord of Oregon
has signed requisition papers , nnd It Is ex
pected the men will go to Portland tomor
row.

Convention.
AUSTIN , Tex. , March 2C. The republican
convention , which lias been In session In
this city since Tuesday , adjourned sine Ole
this afternoon , alter having enjoyed the dis
tinction of narrowly avoiding a funeral anil
having the not unusual thing nowadays In
Texas , a split convention. The situation
looked threatening from the very start this
morning. The McKlnlcy forces worked nil
night with the negroes , and succeeded In
bringing over qulto a number of them , so
that this morning , when the hour for con
vening arrived , It found the McKlnley men
with nn organized force , occupying the cen
ter of the hall , with a very determined look
on their faces and an air of fight surrounding
them. Cuney , the chairman of the conven
tion , when ho mounted the rostrum at 10
o'clock , tcok In the situation at a Blanco ,
and , seeing that the McKlnley men were
assuming fornildablo strength , Immediately
sent his emissaries out for his forces , nnd
pending their return ho did nothing In the
matter of opening the convention , putting
forth the excuse that the commutes on cre
dentials was not ready to report. Ho finally
got his forces together about 1 o'clock , nnd
the committee on credentials putting In an ,
appearance about the same time , the conven
tion wns called to order.
The first work of the convention was tne
receiving nnd adoption of the * credentials
committee report. Its Introduction Imme
diately precipitated n row , and while the
McKlnley men made a determined fight to
get some showing , Cuncy , with his rulings ,
shut them out entirely , and orcanlzed the
convention , with the Uced-Alllson men In
exclusive chaigc.
The UecJ-Alllson men adopted n platform
along the regular lines , the currency plank
of which reads as follows : "We alarm the
historic adherence of the republican party
to sound flnancss. Wo demand nn honest dollar
lar , of the greatest purchasing power for
every class alike ; the largest Issue of gold ,
sllvtr and paper compatible with security and
the requirements of trade , all of equal value ,
Interchangeable ono for the other , every dollar
lar resting on gold as money of final re
demption. The republicans of Texas declare
this to be. In their dellbsrate Judgment , the
only basis for a largo and liberal circulation
of. money and for the maintenance of uni
versal cor.fldonce.
The convention then elected the following
delegates to the St. Louis convention : N. W.
Cuncy of Golveston , an Allison man ; W. ft.
Mnkemson of Georgetown , Reed man ; B. II.
Terrel of San Antonio , an Allison man ; C. H.
Ferguson of Richmond , a Reed man. Alter

Dallas.TROUBLE
TROUBLE BROKE LOOSE.
Hardly had the vote on the selection of
electoro been announced when the long an
ticipated row - wanln > force. As the chair
declared the men elected a wild whoop from
the very center of'the MclClnlcy delegation
proclaimed that the trouble had bcgiin. Ono
burly negro came plowing through the Jam ,
pushing men In front of him as If they were
so much chaff , and In his wake came halt
a hundred excited followers , wild with ex
citement. They gave every evidence that
they Intended to capture the grand stand ,
The spectators and the crowd on the stand
made frantic efforts to get out of their way ,
but all to no purpose. They were on the
stand In an Instant , and there they were con
fronted by Cuncy and his faithful followers ,
who received them with a hearty welcome ,
far warmer than they anticipated. The
Cunoy men had'no time to organize their
forces before the opposition crowd was on
them. Thlu mattered llttlo , however , as
each man Instantly resolved himself Into a
John L. Sullivan and combatted every Inch
of the ground.
The first negro to reach the stage made a
lunge at Cunoy's head with his fist. Whllo
ho was quick , one of Cuney's followers was
quicker. As ho struck at Cunoy ho found
himself confronted by n big revolver In the
hands of a negro , who , whllo not ca largo ,
demonstrated that ho could hold his own ,
against all comers. The two men eyed each
other for ten seconds probably , when they ,
both went down before the howling crowd
that was swaying around and about them.
In nn Instant the platform was the scene
of wild chaos. Excited negroes swayed to
and fro In battle for twenty minutes before
an armed force of policemen could quell the
riot. It waa then dlboovercd that no ono
was dangerously hurt , although ono or two
of the -white delegates , as well as a negro or
two , were bruised considerably. As soon as
order could be restored the convention , after
disposing of a few minor matters , adjourned
cine die , without Issuing any Instructions to
delegates to St. Louis.
Immediately after the regular convention
adjourned the McKlnley faction took charge
of the hall and organized their convention In.
due form and elected the following delegates
to St. Louis : John Grant of Sherman , Frank
Hamilton of Austin , S. L. Smith of Colorado ,
W. E. Davis of Fort Worth. Alternates ) , Ed
Anderson , W. II , Lowe , II. G. Collins and
Richard Allen , The electors named were B.
I1 , Hunt and A , H. Caldwell. Thlu conven
tion did not consider a platform , but adopted
a resolution endorsing McKlnley for presi
dent and Instructing the delegation font
from hero to vote for him as long as hla
name wan before the convention.
Tonight , In an Interview with an Asso
ciated press representative , Chairman Grant ,
of the fctato executive committee , stated that
the McKlnlcy men had nccurod the only
urganlzatlon that had any right to bo repre
sented In St. Louis , and that their fight
would bo successful. He buses this statement -
ment on the tact that Curvsy refused entirely
In allow a roll call , although the McKlnlcy
men demanded It repeatedly , nnd on every
losue. There wan never a roll call In the
convention , presided over by Cunoy , and.
when It was called In the McKlnley conven
tion , It ' "as found that they had 202 uncon-
tcaled votes out of a possible 790. This fact ,
In connection with Cuney's unprecedented
rulings , will bo the bnslo of the McKlnlcy
men's fight for recognition In the St. Louis
convention.
