Prince Henry of Battenberg, accord

Matthew Arnold ouce spoke of Lord
Salisbury as "a man likely to produce
shocks and convulsions." It may be
well to remember, however, that the
fellow who goes around distribung
such things always runs up against
something hard at last.
Professor Wheeler, of Yale College,

Italy has the friendly encouragement

England Intends to cede to Italy the
port of Sela, on the Gulf of Aden, the
Italian troops will be able to go for

must be given in each State to the
Judicial proceedings in every other
State, a party to a divorce cannot es

decree by removing to another State

granted. That is to say, a claim for
alimony can be enforced against a man
wherever he may be found, regardless
of the differences between the divorce
laws of the various States.
It might not be a bad Idea for the
steamship companies to inaugurate a
bitter rivalry to see which can make,
not the fastest hut the slowest time, in
crossing the Atlantic. The St Paul
may not have been racing; she may not
even have been trying to sustain a great
record. If It is a steamer's usual rate
of travel that Is likely to run her against
any stray continent or outlying sections
of North America the usual rate of
speed needs to be safeguarded with
greater precautions. But of course, if
the racing speed of the modern liners
has become so great that North Amer

If William Walker, the American
filibuster, were alive to-day, he would
be only 72 years old, and would be
likely to send a message of sympathy
to bis fellow-adventurer, Dr. Jamleson.
Bat the difference Is that Jamleson
counted on the secret support of his
government, while Walker acted on his
own responsibility. Walker's career of
filibustering lasted seven years, and

la rather amusing to know that
certain English Journals accuse the
Wicked Americans of having pretfpl

It appears that there are luiv uuia
bers of American aiuoii the adven
turous Intruders In the gt'J country,
and that they have been heariug the
English newcomers ceiLgUntly saying,
for the past eighteen tuuuiLs, that aa
soon as they become a little Uiore num

over to gueen Victoria. This line of
conspiracy was deprecated by all Amer
icans who did not care to assist In such
a conspiracy, and the reason alleged fof
their unwillingness by the English wat
that If the British emigrant kept crowd
lug in, the rate of wages would soon
be lowered. It is highly cbaraiteristle
of Mr. Bull that he should allege the

on a fight with the Boers and "do
them out of their country.
J. G. Stodui-uu, an English captain In
the service of the Dutch toward the
close of the last century, left a little
book lxMiind him which now ri-s up
out of the oblivion In which it has Iain
for generations to confront Lord Salis
bury, and to furnish sulwtaiitlal prf
that his statements as to the boundary
between British Guiana and Venezuela
cannot be supported. Captain Stedm.in
was In his youth when he saJh-d from
Holland in 1772, for I'aramarilH). and
he was for some yi ars a:i officer in what
was then known as the "Scots Brigade."
He was of an observing turn of mind,
and after his return to Europe he pub
lished a volume on Dutch Guiana,
which had the honor of being illus
trated with beautiful engravings by
William Blake, the famous English
artist and mystic. This volume, which
was printed in London in 171)7. in I"aris
In 17!)S, ami again In England about
li;i, has a map showing clearly that
the Dutch claim which is, of course,
the only one to which the English have
succeeded extended In thosndays only
to the I'omaron River. Tills seems to
disjMwe conclusively enough of all
Lord Salisbury's attempts to prove an
ancient Dutch title to lands In the in
terior of Venezuela.

post of ambassador has been hampered
and embarrassed In a numler of par
ticulars, and, above all. In the adjust
ment of the disagreements over ques

American products. How well he ac
complished his task Is shown by the
fact that while American interests In
Germany have ben well looked after,
Mr. Runyon, personally, was on the lst
terms with the entire German court
and enjoyed the confidence and esteem
of Kaiser Wllhelm In a marked degree.
It will be a difficult matter to replace

The story Is told of a soldier of the
Army of the Potomac who had his own
Ideas as to his financial value, as well
as the method "by which that value
could be realized.
He was a white man, and was de
tailed for service as a teamster In a
train which was driven for the most
part by negroes. The negroes were
hired at the rate of twenty-five dollars
per month, but the white soldiers re
ceived no more than his regular pay
of sixteen dollars.
He appeared somewhat dissatisfied
with this arangement, and made an
application to his captain.
"I should like." he said, gravely, "to
be apH!nted a negro by brevet and be
assigned to duty In accordance with
my brevet rank!"
A Remarkable Kcho.
A Klllarney tourist, so the story goes,
was assured by a guide that the echo
on Loch Gill was worth hearing So
off went the tourist to hear It and hired
two men to row him out accomplishing
the transaction so swiftly that there
was no time for them to arrange for
the usual echo to be In attendance. In
despair they broke an ore, and one
swam ashore to fetch another. The
echo then began. "Good-morrow,"
cried the tourist "Good-morrow," said
the echo, with a brogue, "Fine day,
God bless It" cried the tonrlst "Folne
day, God bless It" said the echo. "Will
you have a drink V cried the tourist
"Begorra, I wIHT' roared the echo.

KUpabllrant reseat One Minlwr am 4 thai
FmwxroBT, Ky., March 12. All the
confli ting interests in the senatorial
battle were almost turned into a blood
thirsty mob of senators, niemlK-ra of
the house and their adherents jeeteiday
The combatants fought far nearer the
riotous preci ice than they have done
eiuce the deadlock. The house and the
lobbies were the scene of excitement
which needed only an overt act on the
part of a republican to provoke the use
of kn ves, revolvers an 1 clubs.
The republican house had unse ted
Kaufman in spite of Dunlap's with
drawal of bis contest of the seat and re
fusal to qualify, tjuick with their re
vengeful fpirit, the democratic senators
made good their threat to retaliate, and
unseated Walton and James. The latter
lipped into the house while, be was
being unseated, but remained a silent
spector of the partisan battle. Wal
ton refused to leave the senate chamber
when l.e eaw th enraged mob rush to
wards tbo house. All of the indications
then pointed to a stormy time of it
The repu'.licans, tliougu knocked off
their feet temporarily by Dunlap's with
drawal of hie contest of the seat of
Representative Kaufman (deal.), quick
ly rallied and it was decided on that
side to push the fight against Kaufman
regardless of his action. In anticipation
of the excitement which would ce. tainly
follow the expected developments yes
terday Speaker Blandford again enforced
the rule excluding from the lobbies ani
galleries all persons except the ladies,
aud in consequence the crowd was again
on the outside.
In the house there was a preliminary
scrimmage over the distillers' piivate
brand bill and the previous question had
already been ordered on the bill and
amendments, when Mr. Howard, repub
lican, of Butler, rose and called up the
Dunlap-Kaufman contest as a matter of
highest privilege. Mr. Carroll made
the point that the contest hsd been
ended by the withdrawal of the contes
tant. In a minute the wildest excite
ment prevailed all over the state bouse.
Senators huddled together in the mid
dle of the senate chamber, while a mob
crowded every entrance.
The democratic senators yelled their
vote unseating Senators James - and
Walton (republican). Three minutes
later a mob was at the door of the house
declaring that James and Walton
would never go in there. In the mob
were several men with their pistols in
their pockets, standing at the door dar
ing republicans to attempt to bring the
two unseated senators through. Among
tbete were Jack Chinn, Jim Williams,
Senator Bionston, Senator Martin,
Walter Sharpe and Senate Doorkeeper
Tyler. Senator Blackburn was in the
crowd counseling coolness.
The crowd was mad when it learned
that James had already slipped into the
bouse and had done so while they were
unseating him In the senate. Men and
women rushed from the building when
the yell told that the unseating in the
senate had been done, fearing a riot.
The chief of police and a large body of
patrolmen were on hand, however,
Dunlap, the newly seated representa
tive, attempted to enter the house, but
was kept back by the crowd at the door.
The republicans tried in vain to induce
Walton, the untested republican sena
tor, to brave the knives and pi "tola
and force bis way into the house, but he
refused to leave the senate chamber.
1 o Cuba' Aid.
Philadelphia, March 12. Although
the report that another big fllliDuster
ing expedition is ready to start for Cuba
could not be confirmed here yesterday
with any degree of positivenees, enough
was gathered from different sources to
put the rumor on a pretty solid founda
tion. It Is said that the steamer which
will take the expedition is ready to sail
at any moment, and it is possible that
the men and arms and ammunition
which will form the vessel's cargo are
even now waiting for the ship at some
point on the New Jersey coast. When
the steamer arrives off this point, pro
vided tliot the above supposition is true,
she will probably lay to outside the
three-mile limit and the men and arms
will be taken aboard ii boats. If the
expedition was to have started tonight,
as rumored, it is likely that the pre
vailing gale will delay the departure.
On one point only would the local Cu
ban leaders talk.
Ther assert positively that Geh. Ca
listo Garcia will head no more expedi
tions. While crediting General Garcia
with all loyalty to the Cuban cause,
they say he is not circumspect encugb
and that he was mainly responsible
for the failure of the expedition that

Hon. W. S. Broderick, parliamentary
secretary for the war office, stated in

Mr. George N. Curzon, parliamentary
secretary of the toreipn office, stated
that the government had no informa

difficnlty. Despite Mr. Curzon's itate
ment a report is credited in ministerial
circles that Prime Minister Salisbury
has absented to the formation of an
Anglo-American commission that will
be authorized t j settle the dispute.
Mr. Thomas Gibson Bowles, tory
member f r Lynn Regis, asked if the
government's attention had been called
to tstatementa in the Spanish press that

States Spain would fit out privateers

Mr. A. J. Baltour, first lord of the

Armi at Cuba.
Philadelphia, March 13. The vessel
Wiich is said to have left this port for
Cuba a week ago, with arms and ammu
nition, is reported to have landed safely
at a small bay in the eastern end of the
island, and within six hours the entire
cargo was placed in the hands of insur
gent agents. One of the Cuban leaders
who was instrumental in getting this
vessel away, in speaking of it, said :
"So far as we have been able to learn
the ship, with the munitions of war,
arrived in Cuba on Sunday and get
away alt right. If she bad not done fo
we certainly would have had an elabo
rate report of her seizure, or any other
circumstances that would effect the en

only enough to handle the cargo and
look after it properly. The ship cleared
from here for Jamaica, and after sto:

He evidently believed it to be a fact

good prospect of the senate not accept

ever, that the warlike preparations be

luit hrs been brought by the U. 8.
District Attorney for Nebraska against
the Burlington Koad (or the re-convey-mce
of 177,f75 acres of land in the
northeastern counties of this state. The
petition was tiled Saturday, February
29, 18!i, in great haste, because, aflcr
fooling around over the matter for fif
teen or twenty years past, the time
would have expired March 5, lsflrt, alter
which date the government would have
been without remedy. I'.ut on March
2, IH'M, two days alter the suit was
brought. President Cleveland approved
an act which pa.-sed the ten ate unani
mously, and the house by a more than
two-thirds vote, extending the time,
within which the government might
bring euits of this character, for five
years. There eecma to 1 no reason why
any of the sellers owning or occupying
any of this land, purchased from the
Burlington road, need bs alarmed, even
though a summons may be served on
tome or all of them, in this case. The
act of congress referred to tjuriAically
titmpt lantli uhich hnve lit en t'M In
binia-Jide tctllen and lands which have
been granted to railroad companies in
lieu of other lands w hich the; should
have received but were unable to secure
under the grant. The act reads thus:
"But no patent to any ami Iwld by a lama
fide jntrrhaier thnll he racttttd or annulled,
but the riyht and title uj tuch jmrrhater it
heeelry confirmed." This should be suffi
cient to quiet the fears of any person
owning or occupying lands purchased ol
the Burlington road, and it seems a per
fectly useless expenditure of funds o
the government to serve summons on
settlers in the face of such an act of in
gress. Not only has congis-ig protected
every Innocent purchaser, but the U. 8.
6upreme Court, years ago, in other
cates involving railioad land grants, laid
down the rule that whatever may be the
situation between the government and a
Land Grant company, the rights of the
innocent purchaser would lie protected
and in no wise disturbed.
