WILLIAM'S VISIT TO LONDON
European Diplomatic Circle Deeply In
teretted la the Boyat Tonr Oersaaaa
FraJta America's Pork Italian
Ambassador at Berlin Becalled.
London, Jane fc3. The arrest And
prosecution of a firm of dishonest brok
ers in Mauchsster throws a lurid light
on the way souse American enterprises
are floated here. Last month a joint
stock company called the Waterworks
and Gasworks Securities corporation,
with a capital of 2,000,000, was floated
with apparent success. It proposed to
deal with water and gas securities en
tirely in America, and was projected by
Colonel O. B. Inman. The board of
directors was a very influential one,
and included tbe name of Sir Charles
Topper. Befora going to allotment
the sum of 700,000 bod been under
written and approved It now
turns out that of this large sum no less
than 430,000 of the amount underwrit
ten was by forgeries of prominent
names in Manchester and Liverpool.
This was discovered to be the work of
Ernest Power, a member of the broker
age firm of Power & Clegg. Power is
now under arret, charged with forging
the transfer of 30,000 ill shares of the
reason 6z Knowle company. It wat
through his arrest that the forgeries of
the underwriters' names became known.
The director met and determined to re
turn all tbe moneys subscribed by the
public, adding 0 per cent, interest
William's Visit to England.
London, June 23. A fortnight hence
we are to have one of tbe most notable
royal visits within the memory of liv
ing men. Young William is coming to
London in tbe pomp of state. His entry
will easily be the chief ceremonial event
of the kind since Louis Napoleon and
Eugenie came in 185.1, Only three years
ago notning unier ine sun seemea more
nnlikely than bis ever being welcomed
in his grandmother's island capital. In
deed, it is safe to say, be would bave
been hooted in the streets. Now every
thing is so changed that his visit prom
ises to be marked by exceptional en
As always happens in such cases, tbe
press of the Old World will surrender
itself to all sorts of speculation, sur
mises, and canards as to the political
significance of the visit. Lord Salisbury
and the queen bave done their best to
pwwnsrf eetniilnfies of tff' toy iecusjs
mending to the kaiser that he leave
Chancellor Caprivi at borne, and this
will be done, but, all the same, the
triple alliance is in such an unsettled,
not to say shaky, state that politicians
all over Europe will keep their ears
strained for the slightest hint of what
William is saying and doing while here.
Germans Praise Amerloa's Pork.
Berlin, June 23. Tbe American 'pig
is once again engaging public attention,
but in an unusual fashion this time; it
is actually being praised instead of be
ing;condeinnod.The change of feeling in
favor of "our national product" has
been brought about in this way: It
happened that recently in the Elberfeld
slaughter house a dozen German pigs
were discovered to le affected with
trichinosis. An investigation, of course,
waa made, aud it was proved conclus
ively that these porkers had been fat
tened at knackeries where rats abound.
The papers have discussed the matter
and they say, "Whatever is charged
against the American bog, it cannot be
said that it feeds on rats."
The Melinite Scandal.
Paris, June 23. In the chamber of
deputies Monday Deputy Lesserre
moved that the governmVnt explain
why there had been such a long delay
in prosecuting the culprits in the Mel
init scandal and why the examination
had been conducted with closed doors.
Minister Freycinet answered that an in
quiry was instituted in 1889 regarding
the relations between Turpin and Tri
pone. The examination was secret be
cause he found that an open trial might
lead to disclosures inconvenient for the
war office to make. After a debate a
vote of confidence in De Freycinet was
adopted by 333 to 137.

New Yokk, June 23. At Yonkersthe
corner-stone of a building was laid
which is to be the nucleus of the most
important institution of the Capuchin
Fathers in the country. Between 3,000
and 4,000 persons, who went from New

New York, June 23. Senator Peffer
of Kansas spoke at tbe mass meeting
at Cooper onion under the auspices of
the Citizens' Alliance association.
About 700 persons were present. The
senator was cordially received. He
said among other things that affairs
bad come to such a state in this country
that whenever the men of Wall street
dictated a policy cf government that
policy was adopted. Whenever Wall
street men needed money all they had
to do was to ask their partners in Wash
ington for it. He contrasted the treat
ment of those men with that received
by the farmers and the workmen. He
predicted that the alliance would
conquer with their votes and a change
wouia sureiy come.

repeating nit offer to withdraw the

managers of lines operating in Nebraska

Hince the usual arrangement to distri

It is a measure of the Alliance legis

serving the enormous crop of the state

It was learned that Bel a Kan, a lawyer
f Hungary, has brought suit against
the company in the courts of that coun

Tbe New York Life is reported to bave
tried to do this, and' registered in 1888
as a share company, which it Is not, and
induced Kau to insure his life on such
representation. Vice-President Tuck
said that tha difficulty iu relation tf.
the company not being a joint stock

through a mistake of the concession
from the Hungarian government. New
