brought about by the paoplo's fear ot war.

greeted In a most friendly spirit by all the
Jlerlln papers , which devote long articles de
scribing his arrival and appearance. With
very unusual enterprise one Ucrlln paper In
terviewed him at once. M. UcLcssops.wlth his
usual cleverness , said ho was In fa\or ot
peace , knowing nothing about war or diplo
macy. Then he put In a halt column puft
for the Panama canal , about which ho claims
to know something. All Indications point to

A ROYAL HALL AND FALL.
A Serious and Sensational Tumble of
the King of Donmnrk.

March 0. I Now York
Herald Cable Special to the 15iu. : ] A Gen
tleman who wus present at thu recent court
ball nt the ro.\al palace thus describes the
sensational accident that happened to Klne
Christian after supper : The lather ot the
princess of Wales and of the czarlnc danced
n cotillion , choosing for his partner Miss
Estrup , daughter of ills prime minister. A
portion of the Hoer near the queen's throne
bad been so waxed and polished that It was
as slippery as a sheet of Ice. Five couples ,
Including the king and Miss Estrup , .were
waltzing near the slippery spot when two of
the couples slipped , fell and rolled on the
floor. Almost at the saiuo Instant the king's
foot slipped and his majesty fell with a tre
mendous crash on his back at full length ,
bringing down with him Miss Kstrup , whoso
neck was slightly cut by one of the kind's de
corations In his full. The king's head struck
the corner of ono of the steps of the
queen's throne with a report llko that
of a popgun. Theio was great consternation.
The music censed. The king remained
stunned and motionless. JO very one thought
lie was killed. Some of the ladles screamed.
Miss Estrup fainted away and the Countess
lleventlow , ono of the ladles ot the court ,
wasseized wltn a crU do noiirfu. The king
was the lirst to recover his presence ot mind.
Bleeding from a wound In the back of the
head and pale as a sheet , ho tried to rise to
his teot , but fell back again on the floor. The
ladies of the court placed wet handkerchiefs
to bis majesty's forehead and applied smell
ing salts to his nose. In a few inomons-t he
was assisted to his feet llu at once made a
sign to the orchestra to resume the music and
desired the dancing to ro-coinmeuco. Ho
himself made a tour of the hall with Miss
Estrup on his arm , doing his bast to tranquilIze -
Izo her , but shottly afterward the entire
court loft the ball room and everybody wont
homo. Next day the qupon was attacked
With nervous trembling as a result of the
excitement of the previous evening , and the
king was obliged to romaln In his room for
two days. This , perhaps , Is the most sensa
tional Incident that has happened in any
court festivity in Denmark slnoo thu memor
able occasion when the royal Dan wai
startled by the unexpected deaoiioment of
Prince Hamlet's play of "The Mouse Trap. "

an Intcrxlew this morning with Hear Ad
miral William ( iraliam , controller of thu
navy , In relation.to tlio statements that
Draughtsman Terry\vui ! had been dismissed
from the Chatham navy yard , had revealed
the secrets of naxnl duslt'iis to thu American
legation. The contiollur said that they were
merely newspaper assertions , and that"as far
as the htorles connected anybody
In HIP legation with the navy yard treachery
tlwy were entirely false. All that the ad
miralty knew that Terry had sold private
persons designs , which ho gained possession
of by toason of Ills position in the govern
ment employ. The secretary of the Ameri
can location continued and omphasl7ed the
denial that any iirltlsh naval plans had been
obtained by underhanded methods.
The Telegraph , commenting on the dis
charge of Draughtsman Terry from the
Chatham navy yard , says : "If the charge
that Terry's revelations wont indirectly to
the American legation be true , and It be
proved that the government at Washington
has surreptitiously tried to brlbo British of
ficials to turn traitor , a violent wave of In
dignation will sweep over this country. The
people of England and the United States are
on the friendliest terms , and there is every
desire on our part to maintain these rela
tions. British dock yard olllclals are willing
to show foreigners the details of Knulish
naval resources , but the nation desires this to

trafficking In .state secrets when discovered
will be visited with swift censure and punish

Secretary Manning left the treasury de
partment for good this afternoon. He goes
to Now York to-morrow and sails for Kurope
Tuesday. 1 am not violating any confidence
when 1 toll the true reason for Manning's
trip to Kuropn. Wlion it was stated that lie
would take a foreign trip before taking
charge of the new bank in New York It was
vehemently denied by Mr. Manning. Two
weeks ago he went to Now York and had a
consultation with the directors of the now
bank. Mr. Hyao , of the Equitable Life In
surance company , and another well known
capitalist and Mr. Hyde's partner In
projecting and starting the now bank ,
said at this Interview what has been
stated so often from this city that Mr. Man
ning was a sick man. They did not say any
thing , but within the next few days they sold
out all their stock In the now bink at 10 per
cent above par. The reasons they gave was
that Manning was not a proncr man , in his
present physical condition , to take charge of
so largo a concern. The other stockholders
and duectors , when they heard of the two
leadeis' action , crew alarmed , and then they
decided that Mr. Manning should take a trip
abroad. Everything was arranged for him.
Even Mr. Jordan was to go along to see that
ho kept well. This , too , is a great change in
plans , for Mr. Jordan did not Intend to leave
) he treasurer's olllco till late in April. The
hopes of Mr. Manning's absence from the
United States and Jordan's constant attend
ance was what kept the directors ot the new
bank together. It was a hard blow to the
directors to find Manning so ill , because
they had honed his name and services would
be of financial aid to them and they think
now the best thing Is tor him to take a long

A painful state of trepidation and fear
exists among employes at the coveinmont

almost daily sending notices through his
foremen to scores of compositors , pressmen ,
etc. , which read thus : "i am Instructed by
the public printer to Inform you that your
services will not bo required in this ofiico
alter this date. " Tills means summary dis
missal. Others are receiving > 'furlouhs , "
which are equivalent to dismissal. Benedict
says that this course Is necessary on account
ot the dellclcncles created by his predecessor ,
but declares there is all the work thu entire
force can do. Yesterday forty men were dis-
chargeJ. To-day about the same number
wore relieved fiomduty and the reduction of
force will continue till ever 3,300 employes
arc down to about l , < iOO. The public printer
has asked for numerous improvements in the
way of machinery , but there Is little likeli
hood that congress will grant them a large

ave no woik to do and many will be in al
most destitute circumstances.

Roprosent.Ulvo Dibble , ot South Carolina ,
who was chairman lu the last congress of the
house committee on public buildings and
grounds , presented a brief to the president
to-day regarding the much-vexed question of
the latters right to sign bills after the ad
journment of congress. "There are thirty-
live bills , " said Mr. Dibble , "that passed both
houses of congressand rro think the presi
dent has a perfect right to slun them if ho
sees at I nave taken a great deal of trouble
to hunt up authorities In the case and es
pecially slnco many ot the bills came from
my committee , and 1 naturally want to see
them become laws. The proposition set forth
In my brief to the president was that a Dill
passed by both houses ot congress and pro-
bontcd to the president of the United States
during the session might become a law if he
approved it within ten days of its presenta
tion , whether congress was In session at the
time of his signing or not. There Is but'ono
method in which the president
can manifest Ills approval -of. a
bill and that is by signing it.
Approved bills are never returned to con
gress , but they eo from the president , to the
secretary ot state , and consequently , such
bills aiv uot atTccted by any action , of con-
cress so far as adjournment Is concerned.
The bills presented to him havv'all of them
passed both houses ot coneress. If there is
any vicious legislation in thorn ho will with
hold his approval , nnd such bills fall , but as
to others which ho recards as meritorious ho
simply gives onVct to the will ot the people
and the states expressed bv their respective
repiosentatlvcs in coneress In matters which
are for the good of the country. It could
never have boon contemplated that meritor
ious legislation should bo thus dcleated
when the senate and house concur lu thnlr
action and the executive also approves. In
my Interview with the president , " concluded
Mi. Dlbblo , "ho assured mo that he would
give my brief careful consideration , but
would not give mo even an Inkling as to his
determination In the matter.

The pressure has been relieved upon the
president and he finds more time to devote
now to his private aftaiis as well as to the
public since congress adjomned. To bo siire ,
ho has dally to receive congressmen who
want to pay their respects before going home ,
but othct wlso the president Is not much ham
pered with the adjournment of congress.
There has ceased to bo a rush of visitors at
tint white house , and the trl-weekly public
receptions now rarely accumulate moro than
a hundred visitors. All that come to the
white house up to half-past 1 o'clock shako

mitted to see Mrs. Cleveland outside of her

Cleveland was a great favorite with Grand
mother Harmon , and It has been a source of
uoep iciaot that she was unable to leave
Washington to attend the funeral. Besides ,
Mrs. Fdlsoui , when she left Washington for
the bodsldo of her mother , had no intimation
of thu dangerous nature of her Illness and
hence did not consider It necessary to have
her daughter accompany her. Meanwhile

The fakirs , in baking and giving away

a liberal aim expensive thing , but it is
just the oppositu , as the exceeding cheap

equalling the profits they realize when

Tlio ntislncsq of thn State Association
at Their Meeting Imst Night.
A mcOlliig of the Live Stock Shippers'
association of Nebraska was hold in the
parlors of tlio Merchant's liotcl last even
ing , with President U. H. Dibble in the
chair. Among those present were the fol
lowing well known shippers : H. U , Dib
ble , John Wiggins , D. Aiuicrson , W.
Weyaiil , John A. Kolioe , Fremont Hey ,
P. J. riles , James Daniels , A. C. Virgin ,
11. Smith , O. Cassiily , D. L , Martin , John

D. Anderson made a motion , which
was referred to a committed composed of
Messrs. Martin , Hey and Hunter , regard
ing the appointment of a commission to
settle dilheultius arising between mem
bers of the association.
A motion was miulo to strike out the
words in the by-laws jimiting the mem
bership of the association to residents of
the stato. The motion , lu accordance
with the rules , was laid over for action
at the nc.xt meeting. It is understood
that a number of men who are regular
shippers to the Nebraska markets , but
who reside outside of tlio .state , are de
sirous of becoming member.s.
Complaints were made that the unload
ing platform and chutes at the Omaha
stock yards were not properly constructed
and that the hogs were roughly handled
und that a good many hogs we're neces
sarily crippled. The following gentle
men were appointed a committee to wait
upon the stooK yards company and request -
quest that certain abuses bo remedied :
Anderson , Martin ami Dailey. The
committee was also requested to wait
upon the packing houte malingers and
see if some arrangement could not bo
made for the purehr. e of the crippled
hogs at prices more in accordance with
the views of the shippers.
The question discussed at the last meet
ing regarding the action of certain eom-
mission lirms in sending out buyers to
"buck" regular shipper * came up
again. It appeared to be the
the unanimous opinion of the
members of the association that
any commission dealer who would be
guilty of such practices ought not to bo
The bond of the treasurer , H. Smith ,
was read and accepted by thu association.

With tlio approach of spring

to favorable opportunities for
investment , and to all such
would say :
When puttting any Proper
ty on the market , and adver
tising it as desirable , I have
invariably confined myself tea
a plain unvarnished statement
of facts , never indulging in
vague promises for the future ,
and the result in every case
has been that the expectations 1
of purchasers were more J
than realized. I can refer with
pleasure to Albright's Annex
and Baker Place , as sample il
Lots in the "Annex" have '
quadrupled in value and are '
still advancing , while a streetcar
car line is already building
past Baker Place , adding hun
dreds of dollars to the value of
Albright's Choice was se
lected by me with the greatest
care after a thorough study
and with the full knowledge
of its value , and I can consci
entiously say to those seeking
a safe and profitable invest
offers chances not excelled in
this market for a sure thing.
Early investors have already
; v jk
reaped largo profits in CASH ,
and with the many important
improvements contemplated ,
some of which are now under
way. Every lot in this splen
did addition will prove a bo-
nan /.a to first buyers.
