Emperor Wllllam'i udden abandonment of his Intention t < Visit one or more Spanish ports on his re turn to Germany by sea and his determlna tlon to go homo by way ot the Adriatic sea landing at Pola and taking the train to : Potsdam via Innsbruck , has given rise ti considerable speculation as tu the real mo live of his change ot plan. The ofnclal ex planation gives the health of the emprcs : as the sole reason for his majesty's raplc returning , but Is partially accepted here although It Is well known that the empres ; Buffers considerable from seasickness am dreaded the passage across the bay of Dls cay , especially In view of the change ti temperature and the prospects of storm ; weather. The Impression among leading politicians however , Is that the slate of home pollllc and the inapproprlateness of his propoaei visit to Spain at the present Junctun mainly Influenced the emperor's decision The Imperial chancellor , Prince Hohenlohe represented to his majesty the ncccsslt ; for an early opening of the Reichstag li view of the mass of wtirk that body has t get through and suggested Novnmber 2 or December 1 for fine opening ceremonies Bmporer William , who Intends to open th cession In person , thereupon decided to re turn directly. The ministers have all re turned suddenly to Berlin and the greatcs activity Is observable In political circles. The discussion of the government's antl ptrlko measure promises to make the sea rlons of the Reichstag extremely lively.

The verbatim publication ( the ' documents which first appeared In Vienna paper and which were afterwar copied by the entire German press , enable the nation generally to form an inlelllget Idea of Ihe whole niatler. In the verballi reprint the regent's original letter of cca plulnt Is shown to have been couched 1 Tory respectful , calm language and that at parently the cmprror had no reason whai over to reply by the curt , Insulting tel < gram forbidding the regent over to addrei blm In a ulmllar manner again. The cli cular letter sent by the regent to tt reigning princess also set forth bU grount for complaint In a very dignified manne None ot the answers received to the clrct lar teller have thus far been divulged , bi It Is said In diplomatic circles that sever of the replies received by the regent ai conciliatory and sympathetic , especially tl one 'from the prince regent of Bavarl while the replies of the king of Saxony ar the grand duke ot Baden counselled moi moderation. According to reports from those who a : near to the emperor his majesty has latel changed his opinion of the whole case ar now regrels treating the recent of Llppi Detmold so haughtily and allowing the ca : do go trV far oa It has and becoming a m tlonal scandal. It Is too late , however , e top the matter and the Bundcsrath wl take up the. case at an early opportunl'y. must deal with two points the regent's fo tnal complaint against the emperor and tl protest ot the emperor's brother-ln-la' Schaumburg-Llppe , against the Diet's adoi tlon of the law of succession , which di clnred the regents' lawful Issue entitled ucceed to < be throne of Llppe. ltemontrance Aicnlnit BxpaUlon * . The wholesale expulsions from northei Schleiwlg , Silesia and Posen are In coi sonance with the resolutions adopted by tl Prussian cabinet In spite ot the opposltli of the Imperial chancellor last summer.

Tl Danish press has taken up the matter and urging the Danes to stop buying Germ : goods. The Prussian government , neverth less. Intends to continue the expulsions f national reasons. The trial of a French sp Isldor Decoq , for betraying Important mil tary secrets to France , was opened befo the imperial court at Lelpslc today.

Late this afternoon after being out twenty-four hours , the Jur ; n the case of j ! II. Soutlmll , on trla charged with selling forged governmen .trae chocks , returned a verdict of guilty The swindle Is said to have amounted ti about $700,000. James H. Southall wa3 until about eight een months ago chief clerk in the Unltui States engineer's office here. In that post tlon he formerly had charge of Issuing tlm checks to laborers on the government works From discounting a tow of those himself , h < came to handling them for outsiders. Th profit was largo and the demand great , R : hat ho took to Issuing bogus time checks selling them among his friends. New Is sues of time checks could always be eoli In time for him lo cash such as came due so that ho was able to evade discovery to several years , even though no such tlm checks had been Issued by the governmen lor the last six or more years. The Southal time checks wcro sought not only In thi city but were handled all over this coun try and as far east as Hartford , Conn. Wit ! the money he realized from Ihe time check 3outhall was speculating In the wheat mar ( tet and backing a local commission house Last winter ho lost considerable money li wheat , and finally , In February , came th exposure. The amount of bogus time check In the market was unknown , but the mos conservative estimate was $500,000 , whll others placed It at over $1,000 , 000. It developed during the In vesMgailon after Southall's arres that the government officials hod ds ! covered the Irregularities In April , 1897 , nni bad discharged Southall , but did not revea his operations on his promise to make goo < what was outstanding. On this holders o the bogus paper have claimed that the gov ernment waa liable and ehould make goo their losses.

' The Liberal cartoonist pictures Mr. Jo seph Chamberlain , secretary of state foi the colonies , Sloan-like , bestride a gallop Ing lion and catching up to other patrlotli orators , with the remark : "I must burr ] up with my lion. I am a little late. " In fulfillment of this sentiment thi colonial secretary has made three speeches handling the whole field of Great Drltaln'i forefgn and domestic policies In his custo mary ungloved and Breezy fashion , whlcl has brought upon his head a storm of angr ; retorts from continental politicians. Their organs remarks that no Englithmai speaks nowadays without throwing compll raentfi at the United States and one pape charges Mr. Chamberlain with becoming re markably bold , "since Great Britain baa In duccd America to promise to fight her bat ties , " to which the Spectator replies : Wo trust the American public wll clearly understand that we are not seeklni n. hard and fast political alliance. We d not desire to go beyond the acknowledg mcnt that If we or the United States ge our backs to the wall the other Anglo Saxon will be at his side. " See Nothing bnt Good In America , The English newspapers are unable to fin anything but good in the trend of affair in the United States. They even discuss th Dlngley bill in a friendly tone , the Stalls finding In the acquisition of colonial terri tory a hope of relaxation of the high tarll In the United States themselves. It eon serves that it would be a startling anomal if the Dlngley tariff was maintained In al Its prohlbitlveness In the United State while the new possessions were open to th trade of the world. The Statist does not doubt the Unite States fully recognizes this and adds : "International cordiality has obtatne such warmth that the foreboding is otte heard from the man-ln-the-street that I may be impossible to maintain It wlthou cooling. As a politician put It , antagonist !

DRE\FUS TO RETURN Prisoner on Devil' * Island Will Confront His Accuser * , COURT ORDERS HIM TO BE PRODUCED Order for Bis Repatriation to Be Issued , in t Few Day , AfttlDREYFUS PRESS RESORTS TO ABUSE Vilifies Any and All Friends of the Unfortunate Officer. POLICE AUTHORITY ARE ON THE WATCH They Are Aware at a Plot to Mnrdcr TliONc Prominently Connected with the Cnm. lle ela tion * of Rtcrltair ( Copyright. 1SDS. by Press Publishing Co. ) PARIS , Nov. 19. ( New York World Ca blegram Special Telegram. ) Each suc ceeding step toward the vindication of Drey fus provokes the antl-Droyfus press lo frosli efforts of unscrupulous calumny. Le Solr publishes a statement by a former woman servant of Maltro La Borl. Zola's counsel , that she heard him say once : " 1 am con vinced that Dreyfus Is guilty , bui money can do anything and Iho Jews have It. " La B rl's contemptuous refusal to notice this fabrication Solr Impudently Interprets Into an admission of the truth. Meanwhile showers of threatening letters are received by the court of cassation , especially by President Loew , a Judge of Ihe very highest. Integrity. They are nil under special police protection. For the same reason Madame Dreyfus llvca In strict seclusion close to Paris ami Mathleu Dreyfus , acting on the advice of the profecl of police , never vcnlures out unaccompanied aflcr dusk. The precautions taken by the police show clearly that they have knowledge of the exlsience of a con spiracy to murder those prominently Idenll- fled with the Dreyfus agitation , but an afraid to arrest the conspirators. Kntcrhasy' * net elation * . The first monthly Inslallmcnt of Ester- hazy's revelations Is promised this week and the commandant atlerapis lo whet the public appetite by stating in the profaca the reasons actuating him .for making the threatened disclosures. He now denies hav ing confessed to forging the bordereau and asserts ; "I have no Intention of trading In state secrets. This I leave to Dreyfus and Pic- quart. 1 shall say In this book only what will be Btrlclly useful for my defense and shall not Intentionally compromise anyone , but have made up my mind to exculpata myself completely from the unmerited shame Inflicted upon m-s by politicians ami their servile magistrates. I shall tell their Intrigues , .unroll thclc. maneuvers thcli- abuse of authority. * their turpitude and prove that I would be better Judged by Iho scum of our prisons than by many of our French Judges of today. " His animus Is specially directed against ' Cavalgnac and General Uoget , "who broke me and flung me as a living prey to the pack. " Esterhazy' motive In Issuing the book In parts Is perfectly appreciated. Ho hopcu . frighten the Individuals compromised Into buying him off , but Esterhazy Is so thor oughly dlHcrcdlted now that no unsupported allegation from him could Injure anybody. Dreyfna Will Iletnru. The order for the repatriation of Dreyfus Is certain to bo Issued within a tow days , The court of cassation directed nn Inquiry to bo opened with him by cable with a full knowledge that such means of communica tion would prove Impracticable and his re- turj would become Imperative. That fact Is now recognized and Judge Loew Is de clared , with the assent of all his colleagues , to have already drawn up a peremptory de mand on the minister of Ihe colonies for the personal production of the prisoner. The court is anxious to a\old any action calcu lated to embarrass the government , so the presentation of this demand will bo made at the most favrrable possible moment , probably when Plcquart's Innocence is proved and the popular anti-Dreyfus preju dice momentarily checked. The whole situ ation , however , Is still full of possibilities of trouble and the conviction ' remains universal that the acquittal'of Droyfus will bo fol lowed by a revolution.
