May 13. ( Now York World Ca blegram Special Telegram ) Private ad vices from Simla bring tidings of some thing like a palace revolution In the vice regal housUiold. Owing to thu pretentious of the vicu regent's mother , .Mrs. Loiter , Cap tain Mcade , ono of Lord Cui/on'n aides-de- camp , has rewlgncd and other members of the viceroy's unite are reported to bo In a stnto of suppressed mutiny. It was all be cause Loid Cur/on gave orders when Mis. and Miss Loiter were driving alone , that they uhould bo escorted by an aide-de-camp. There Is no place on earth whom etiquette rules so absolutely as In this colony of An glo-Indian officialdom. Tradition pi escribed that sons , daughters or slstera of the vice roy might have a viceregal aide-de-camp In attendance , but such n distinction was never toeforo claimed for the viceroy's mother-in- law. Captain Meade formally declined an escort nnd then offered hit , resignation , which wa-j accepted. Ho is now leturnlng to England The young earl of Suffolk , an other of the viceroy's aides , who Is very etvvect on Daisy Loiter , has since attended them , but not officially. There has also been trouble and heart-binnlng about the viceroy's mothcr-ln-law's and slstrr-ln-law'B precedence nt viceregal entertainments Mrs. Loiter Insisted on being taken In after her daughter , which point was conceded reluc tantly by searched old officials , but blttoily resented by tholr wives. The viceregal cir cle is being necessarily extremely re stricted. This unpleasantness Is continually cropping up In one form or another , mak ing Curzoii's llfo mlsoinble. The worst Is that Mia Loiter cannot understand whit the trouble Is about and the Intense enjoy ment she derives from her quusl-regal hon ors Is the most Irritating feature of all. Hoeloty Startled.

The duke's mother Is strongly opposed to the match , be cause Miss Wilson has only a fortune of $ .r,00,000 , nnd her grandmother , the duchess of Devonshire , wan fearful of the result of his marrying until ho had settled do\vn and did everything to prevent the match. Ono of her methods + 'of pressure was nn Intima tion that if the duke married without her consent she would claim pa > ment of her Jointure from the Manchester estate ? , which she had foregone since her husband's death.

( New York World Ca blegram Special Telegram. ) lAndicw Car negie spoke freely this morning concerning his plans of public buncflcclico and the Industrial competition of the United States and nngtand. Doth topics arc causing con troversy and speculation on both sides of the Atlantic just now. "Have vou any general scheme for dis bursing your millions' " "Not any set scheme , but the directions in which I have tried heretofore to do some good will afford a general Indication of my Idea of the most beneficial uses to which money can bo applied. I nm the last mnn living to believe in promiscuous or Indis criminate charily. My opinion Is that out of every $1,000 bestowed on so-called charity $950 had better have been thrown Into the &ea. No applications need bo made to me for contributions , as nil my letters are opened by my secietary and such applications never get befoio me. I hope to preserve what llttlo reputation 1 possess for com mon sense In assisting useful objects. My gift to Birmingham is only a slight return for the inventions Birmingham baa given Plttsburg bteel and Iron manufacturers , be sides and this Ih a very Important quali fication In this connection my partners have i.ot yet definitely purchased my interest in my firm. I really don't know whether I will be glad or sorry to go out of business. It Is n great wrench , but I dare say I shall find lots of occupation any way. I leave for Scotland Tuesday and look forward tea a delightful holiday on my salmon rivers for the summer. " Amerloa'x Industrial Siiproiiinoy. "Mr. Barnes , becretary of the Amalga mated Society of Engineers , stated that the solo reason for the transfer of orders for locpmothes and bridges and other Iron work to the United States wns because English workshops iwero full and that the English engineering trade shows a ste.idy growth for the last Ion years " . "Is this consistent with your vlcwo ex pressed Monday ? ' - , . "Barnes' explanation Is qulle true. All steel manufacturing vsorks In the world today - day nro pressed for products The demand U greater than the whole woild can supply for Iron and steel machinery nnd ships. So long as that demand continues all works will be busy , but after a tlmo there will bo n slackening of the demand. The question Is which country will get half the loaf when there Is not enough to go round. My answer Is the United States , because It can produce ' cheaper than either England or Germany , the only two competitors necessary to tnko 1 Into account , as American manufacturers can afford to run their works to supply the 1 enormous home demand at a small profit and dump their surplus in competition with all other nations England and Germany are 1 working up to tholr utmost capacity today , Their cost of raw materials Is stcadllj in 1 creasing and it Is Impossible for them to 1 compete In the open markets rf the world at prices the American manufacturers can 1 afford to take for their surplus. Neither has 1 the Immense homo market of the United I States , and the country which furnishes the ' best home maiket Is the best equipped to capture the foreign. " "How long will this Industrial boom last ? " "It cannot wane this year , as there are orders sulllclpnt to keep things booming for that time. At nil events the supremacy of the United States In the Iron and steel trades Is permanently established. The ' United States is barely tapping Its resources in the way of Iron nnd coking coal fields , whllo England nnd Germanv nro working thelifl to the full limits. England's product of pig Iron is decreasing year by year de spite the big prices It now fetches. Amor- lea's industrial triumph Is to endure. " riilllnplno ( InoNtlon Ahronil. Andrew Carnegie also gave out the fol lowing signed statement today on Imperial ism and the political outlook for the United States "It gives me pleasure to oblige you by N statement of the situation in which I find the Imperialistic question here. I have eceti many of the most prominent public men now In London whom I know to have been friends of the American republic when it needed friends. From the highest to the lowest , without exception , they linve met mo with expressions of deep regret that the republic founded by Washington and his colleagues upon plans so much higher than those of nny other stnto should have fallen to the level of Uio military states of Europe. Some of these men stood with Bright In the cam paign against the Imperial party here who longed to strike us down , I repeat that without exception these men are lamenting tl'o lapse from true Americanism to this miserable Imperialism. "I have met men of the other clans wlm struck us when the republic was down. Let mo give them credit for a change of tlielr feelings toward America. I know them now to bo amongst the foremost advocates of race alliance. But I also know If I were a British statesman there would be no price I would not pay for nn alliance with America , no prlco would be lee high or securing her entrance Into the itroubl l waters of the far eayt , botnuro It Is the deslro of all English- speaking men that v\o should stand together ns against men not of our raco. Nature made Idool thicker than water and an al- llanco with our republic U now the keynote of British policy and wisely ho. But not an alliance with our present Industrial republic. Our present war-lord makes himself ridicu lous In the eyes of these statesmen with ! three battleships at his back and only 40,000 soldiers strutting llko peacocks , asvain and just as harmless. No It Is not the present industrial republic England wlahea to Imve as her ally. It Is the ropubflc England Bees America must become If it doea not ROOD lovcrso Iti. policy In regard to the Philip pines , We must have a tremendous navy and f\ huge standing army ; for Britain judges truly that Into whatever enterprise- the CnlUd Etattb goes It will not be contort i _ , long to pby second fiddle It IB now only the cats-paw of England. It could not main tain its position for a day In Manila If Eng land withdrew her august protection. It U a humiliating position. It makes my Mood boll as I f iemk the. worde. A recreant president Is < lie FO.'O CAUBO of it. Up It was who who changed his mind and demanded the Philippines against the advice and wltlies of most of his colleagues , Will the president be permltte d to sacrifice the lives of our soldiers much longer In fuHlo effort to con quer 1,200 Inlands that would not stay con quered If they were beaten ? Such is the position B viewed from Londca. ProspootM of Iloimlillouii Party. "You nsk my personal views ns to the future. I answer , President McKlnlcy will not bo allowed by the manager * ot the re publican iiart ) to continue his follj. I be lieve he has been already Informed by those whoso voice he cannot disregard that bo must stop and return to American tradi tions. The country has no stomach for vic tories over people flEhilnpt for righteous self- government. Heading between tbo Hues It is seen that he Is now veering round. Had ho authorized Otis or directed him to grant Agulnaldo the- conference the latter asked before war broke out all that has happened slnco would have been unnecessary. Today wo see his commission taking every means In Its power to get a conference with Agill- naldo and they are not standing on form. General Otis , as reported by today's cables , still wants to push on military operations , to which President Schurman objects. The contrast between Otis and Dewey Is sig nificant. Powey always reports only what has been done. Otis has misled the coun try sovcial times about what ho Is going to do. Ills plan of campaign was ghen out with a great nourishing ot trumpets. Ho was going to corral the enemy , hut so far he has been a complete failure. Ho won skirmishes ns everjbody 03 peeled , but lost his campaign. The suppression of the news from Manila which our republican president enforces would not bo tolerated by mon archical Britons. Ono suppressed cable at Manila that comes via Hong Kong today tells us the Nebraska regiment Is reduced to 300 men with 160 on the sick list. "Tho season approaches when military operations must cease nnd the president no doubt stands aghast at the grave situation. Ho Is now icported ns about to call an extra session of congress In a vain effort to relieve himself of the responsibility. My forecast Is tint the president will get out t of the Philippines and return to American i principles by obtaining a shadowy protectorate - torato , In sonio form nnd that bo will bo able | | j to appear before the republican convention j I with the Philippine question settled , having I given them the same promise of independ- | i ence he gave Cuba , and that our party will | - then earn the presidential election. If he I approached the country with the war In the i Philippines unsettled It is improbable he I will got even the nomination. The weight I i would be too great to carry. This , however , he probably thinks already secured , but his t election would then bo another story If the democratic party were to drop silver and como out for Americanism. If the Issue Is presented to the people as between the prtnf | clples of Washington or McKlnley there Is I no doubt of the result. Our party would be j , beaten , and deserve to be. "There , you have tempted me Into proph- ecy a dangerous business. " . IGOOD ' PROSPECT FOR TREATY | j German Pnlillo lIc-hiK Kilttentcil to Ilcttcr Opinion of PoiiilliiRT Com- meieliil Agreement. , airy 13 Nefiotl ( T'j'ns fur a com- merclal treaty between the United States I and Germany have now been taken up in . earnest at this end of the line. The United j States ambassador , Andrew D. White , ex- poets that , despite the number of formld- able obstacles that must bo overcome , a treaty which will be satisfactory to 'both ' nations will crown the efforts of the rep resentatives of both governments. i There la every reason for saying that the j I 'German ' goveinment , and notably the for- j I elgn minister , Bixron von Buelow , will do1 ovorj thing possible to overcome the dlfill > culties of the task of formulating such a treaty. The foreign ofllco Is having the jio- I tent aid of Emperor William as well as the sympathetic co-operation of representatives j of all the German states in the Buudesrath , I j ' and Is determined not to permit the ob- I stlnate aversion of the powerful agrarian Interests to stand in the way of such an important bond with America. The emperor I ' mada clear the fact that he views such a ' treaty favorably in the course of recent ex- , prcsslons to Baron von Buelow. The main , i difficulty that Mr. Whlto has encountered thus far In the preliminary conferences nt the ministry of foreign affairs Is the erroI I neous Idea that hns taken hold of the German - | man mind nnd been sytematlcally fostered by the agrarian and other newspapers that I trade with the United States has latterly I been distinctly unpiofitnblc. ! The papcrc referred to , oven with statls- j tics prepared by the government , have made a strongly plausible case tending to show that the balance of trade has steadily In clined to the sldo of the United States. Tlio minister of the Interior , Count von Posa- dowsky-Wohner , made a statement to the same effect to the Reichstag a few weeka ago. Mr. Whlto this week produced stronK counter evidence , taking facts and figures j from material supplied by the Trensuiy de j partment at Washington , showing that while it wns true Hint American exports to Ger many In 1898 were unusually large , far ex ceeding In bulk and value the German ex ports to the "United States , the fact was largely due to temporary causes whllo every * thing now shows n renewed larger demand for German goods from the United States , Mr. White also pointed out that whllo German exports are largely manufactured gqods , American exports are mainly pe troleum , cotton and other raw materials , not produced here , or Insufficiently produced , as | cereals , copper , etc. , whose value as In- cieased hero nnd which are subsequently re- oxpoi tod. MiWhlto also furnished proof by official flgincs of the first three months of 1809 and approximate figures for the current thrcs months that during the year under the exist ing tariff there has been undeniably a largo Increase of German exports to America a-- * that the total value of such exports for the ontlio jcnr of 1899 will exceed $100,000,000. These facts and figures will soon be suitably brought to the attention of the press and ilvvllt uoon by government speakers lu the Reichstag within a fortnight , thus ending the systematic misleading of the public by the mouthpieces of the agrarian party With tbo public thus set right , it is sup posed tlio tasK of the negotiating of a treaty will become easier nnd that the majority of the Reichstag will no longer antagonize the measure , It Is also expected that this clari fication of public opinion will favorably In fluence the Rc-ichstag In the matter of the pending meat Inspection bill , the chances ot which at present appear to be very slim , largely through Hie same systematic misrep resentation for which the agrarian papers uro responsible.

Tlicy re- reived mo with much courtesy and consid eration. His majesty spoke earnestly anil thoughtfully of the relations between the two countries , especially of the new cable line between the United States and Ger many. I reached Berlin on Friday night to learn that the emperor would not return to the capital from Strnsburg , but would continue his tour to Metz , sojourning for a while In Iho ( Chateau Urvlllc , which Is now his ra- vorlte residence and which ho bought from the | Baron Cerce for 300,000 inaiks. There he feels that ho may rest , BUI rounded by Ills family j , free from the glamours nnd cares of the court. Hut even there ho cannot be wholly free , for the emperor is an Indefatlg- able worker. No one can approach Mctz without emotion. The \cry air Is heavy with memories. There -wore soldiers everywhere In ( splendid uniforms. The majority of the olllccrs are Prussians , nnd superb men to look \ upon. I left Metz for Urvlllo on Sunday morning. It Is a drive of seventeen miles , the t road winding through the beautiful val ley i of the iMouellc There are many battle fields whore the Germans nnd the French lie IE sldo by side. As I approached Urvlllo the eceno grow gayer. There were the white nnd black I and red flags of Germany , nnd the white and black flags of Prussia. Ever greens woroimlnglid with the bunting. Even the houses of the peasants were decorated in hone * of the emperor's pre ence. MnKiilliociit Snlillorn. As I came nearer the chateau I could see the troops of the emperor's favorite regiment , the One hundred and forty-fifth of the line , whoso uniform It Is his majesty's pride to wear.At the gates stood a line of sentinels , tall , handsome , richly uniformed men. Beyond , lending up to the chateau , I paw an Imposing array cf soldiers drawn up as If for a review. As I drove up the nvenuo they siluted and paid an honor that means much In Europe. A rapid turn brought the carriage in front of the entrance to the chateau. There was another line of soldiers , jj the finest In Europe. They also saluted me , as I went by them. It was all very beautl- J ful to American eyes Two lackejs In splendid red , black and White liveries , bearing the royal arms , ran out and aided me to descend from the car- rlage. I passed on to the Inner preclncln of the royal dwelling. Many officers In gor geous uniforms saluted mo with deferential and charming politeness. I wns ushered Into ] an apartment just off the entrance. , The emperor , the empress , Prince Joachim , the , Princess Victor and the Princess Louise were all there , just having returned from church. I looked upon the kaiser with mingled feelings. ] It 'was a verj great privilege to meet , this man , who Is playing so Important . a part in the history of the world. Ho stands , very erect , with the military bear- ing. ] His carriage Is easy and graceful , Ho speaks , quickly. His fac and his manner express , greaU determination. He looks like a , man whom destiny has designated to ac complish great deeds. Ho Is cordial and sympathetic and combines Imperial dignity with great simplicity.
