Cable-Special to the liui : . ] Uerlln ,
In fact Germany , spent the week
enthusiastically picparing to celebrate the
emperor's ninety-first birthday year
Wednesday came the crown prince of Aus-
trla , to-morrow comes the Prlnco of Wales ,
Hctwcen these two distinguished arrival ;
have come a bewildering number of brill
lant , uniformed , wonderfully titled royalties
and semi royalties from all parts of Kurope.
In all clghtr-llve of them Including sue ! :
minor reigning kings as Koumanla and
Saxony either arc or will bo lieio to attend
the great event. Princes , dukes and arch'
dukes and archduchesses arc hero in sucli
numbers that ono expects to see over the
doors of the vailous palaces the notice ;
"Only kings need apply. " The prince ;
nlono would make n considerable partj
among themselves. Such an assemblage ol
titled personages has never In recent yean
gotten together In Berlin. Alivady nose ;
have been counted , and tlio best authorise :
Bay with pilde that there are tivo mon
royalties this time than over before , everj
ono of them , too , Interesting , Inheriting tlu
divine i It-lit to bo blown up by nihilists , but
ad Interim , to wear a multitude of orders
much gold lace and many unwieldy titles. 1
strikes Americans as a waste of force to te
together hero such a number of royaltie :
that minor personages are entirely lost In the
bin/o of higher titles. The least among tin
prlnceH who hero hldo tholr diminished head ;
would , In America , till half the continent
with their glory. Special messengers an
also coming from several courts to bear tin
good wishes of their masters to the emperor ,
among them General Cordova , who bring !
what , it Is to bo hoped , Is not an autograpl
letter from the little king of Spain.
Tlin I'llOOUAMMi : OF KKSTlVmr.S.
Tin ) prosramnio of festivities docs not In
elude so many public events as would bo tin
case If the emperor were younger. On the
morning of the birthday there will be a re
ception at the palace , which literally Include :
Only princes. ' The emperor expected tore
calve these guests himself , but being tired , hi
will leave this reception to the care of tin
crown piInco , who has nut only the prem
ises but several hundred lesser lights on hli
hand. The dinners , banquets aud recuptiom
that occur during the week are most ad nan
scam , but the kaiser will , as a rule , delegate
such matters to the crown prince , not frou
illness or weakness , as witness tlio followin ;
details of the kaiser's work last Wednesday
but because aged men , whoso lives are o
great importance to the world , cannot allen
to risk over exertion. Take tlio court rcpor
for Wednesday showing the emperor'
general health. The mall brough
various papers for the Imperial Rla
nature. Aftei wards the mayor , genera
workmelster and other high officials dls
r.ussed with the emperor and the minister o
war various changes in the army. In th
nfturnonn Prlnco Leopold and Kbegross
hcrsog otOldberg had audiences. Not ox
haustcd by seeing persons with such name
and titles , the umpuror In the evening held i
musical solrca at which -XX ) persons wor
present. This day's work Indicate
strength to survive even such birthday fes
tlvltles as ho has before. In the city th
birthday will bo observed as a hell
day. Everywhere the streets will bo Illuuil
noted. Electric lights will bo used on
really magnificent scale In all the great opei
places. Great torchlight processions , a u n
era ! gathering of students' societies In a !
parts of Onuany , open meetings in all grca
learned societies are a few among the man ]
ways In which the day will bo celebrated
All the innumerable verclns or unions , al
M'hnols , unlmsUlcs and corporations ai
ono way or another In tlio celebration
which , beginning to-morrow , culuiluatt
Where Uerlln will put all tbo visitors wh
are expected to crowd hero next week Is nc
quite easy seeing. It la to be hoped , how
ever , that nt least the higher royalties wl.
not be forced to sleep in tiers or on the floor
of tlio Imperial palace , as may occur to tin
less distinguished guests at the hotels.
Three days of snow and cold weather hav
delayed the street decorations somowhn
This urenlug's clearer sky , however , has se
everyone to work soccagurly making up fc
lost time that the prouienadcr along the nial
htrccts Is torcvd to itpend much of his thn
in dodglmj ladders. The unter don Lliule
is already gay with flags and evergreen !
The academy , opposite tlm kaiser's palac <
lias eight tall llagstatfs rising from the sid
walks. At their bases stand tall statues c
( iorman knlghU looking like maibli
but really made of wood. The whole fiont :
already draped with red cloth and man
flags. The Impoilal palace shows no sign
of preparation beyond two big pipes runnln
aloiK tliotopot the biiiUliui : , from the sldt
ot which ens designs of crowns , etc. , hav
begun to sprout The btatuo of Frederic
the ( ircat , between the palace and the beat
einy , was surrounded by a line of many co !
oreil class globes , and is gaily decked. Fa
( her down tbo mlndea the crown pnnco
pnlncels thu tlrst to show signs of decora
tlon. Many llncpoles project from the roc
and uiuny colored lights are hanging froi
them. All over th city crowns , tl ;
Imperial Initials and mottoes outlined In xi
lots , multicolored globes or electric Ugh' '
have begun to appear on the bouse frost
Ittare Is a general feeling In the city tin
there should not be a window In Berlin dai
d nor a house froi
without flags. Already this evening wo have
> ccn able to get an Idea of wlnt the appear-
nticaofthe liouso fronts will be. Several
! ieat gas designs have been lighted In older

Over : iWO ( students with torches will march
hrough tlio city and parade before the cm-
peror. The theaters have caught tne general
enthusiasm. Onu brings out a new play
called "ICornbluinen , " founded partly on
events In the emperor's life. Genuine sold -
d er.s , as a murk of special favor , will bo al-
owed to appear on the stage to make the
ilay more icallstlc. Most of the royal guests
are now In the city , though some from the
iioio distant counties will arrlvo to-morrow.
riie Turkish special representative has at-
racted much attention , as ho Is the most
Jeriuan of Germans , but Is arrayed In an
iltra-Turkish garb. Kadi government has
won specially received at thn depot. Per-
mpHtlio kaiser sees htm and then ho loses
ilmsclf In the mass of little people who flood
tbo city. Some idea of the nuin-
wr of princes , nobles and aides-de-camp
and distinction of titles and rank can bo
formed from the fact that the state banquet
Utho castle on Tuesday will take place In six
largo rooms , one room being specially set
\part for majors , generals and colonels. The
kaiser remains in pxeellunt health and wo
ire promised fair weather. The enthusiasm
Is greater than ever before , so everything
points to a very lemaikablo celebration.
Among the men whom not oven the Im
perial birthday will tempt to remain In Her-
lln. Is Dr. Junker , Enrln Pasha's friend.
Wednesday night Junker described to an
audience of the most learned and scientific
men of Uerlln , his adventures in Africa.
The story was with a powerful simplicity
which greatly affected the hearers , leaving a
a vivid Impression of the dangers and priva
tions to which Emln Is exposed. Attei
the Icctuic the principal learned societies ol
Berlin joined to give Junker a great dinner ,
at which I noticed , chiefly , the great number
of well-known men picscnt and the great en
thusiasm with which the the emperor's
toasts were drank. Africa also received
sufllclcnt enthusiasm , to tempt Ulsmarck to
faither annexation. It Is rumored here
that Junker , after returning to Uussla , will
; o again to Africa 'under the patronage ot
Germany , more especially ot Ulsmarck.
Poor Succl , the hunger virtuosena , as he
is called here , Is the only other noteworthy
of the week , 'lie has chosen a bad time to
starve himself Into notoriety and dollars , as
the people are too much occupied1 with feastIng -
Ing to care much about fasters. llo gets some
mention , as ho Is attended by numberless
doctors , who take scientific delight In hlf
starving. They limit him to ono week , but ,
on the whole , he has a fair chance of suc
cess. _
The KnlKlitM of Imuor Will Not Be
Condemned at Rome.
[ CnfyriatitSOT fiy Jamrx Goniou Jlennctt. ' ]
ItoMK , March 10. | New York Herald
Cable-Special to the UKK. | The Knights
of Labor need not bo anxious. Thn Vatican
Is more liberal than people imagine. From
the very hrst there was no need to tear thch
condemnation. An Interview 1 have jusi
had with ono of tlio most eminent cardinals
In the congregation of the holy inquisition
dispels all doubt on the matter. When 1
called on hi * eminence T found him reading
a sheet of Cardinal Gibbons' report to the
propaganda , lie replied to my questions
with unexpected frankness and you mayresl
assured that his views are those of a majority
of tlio holv office.
"America , " said his eminence , "Is a pe
culiar country and must be dealt with In E
peculiar way. It should bo treated within
Unite care. Nothing should bo hurried
nothing done to exasperate or offend It. The
future of the world , pei haps , Is in America ,
1 shall not see It , but tlio twentieth centurj
may show I am right The church should
wish to see It treated with foiboarlng affcu
tlon , nay , I would rather say , with the atTee
tlon of a mother. I cannot for a moment
admit that such a question as this of tlu
Knights of Labor .should be settled olTham
or that the decision In ono country shouh
decide the case In another. In Canada , when
there Is practical religious unanimity , tlu
conditions may bo such that the knight :
may constitute a danger , but In the Unltei
States , the classic land of liberty , things an
possibly otherwise. You have , perhaps , seer
the wise , clear , sensible report of Cardlna
Gibbons , by whom 1 was favored with a vlsl
lately. Though I cannot , of course , prcjudgi
the course which thn congregation will take
It appears to mo it will be very difficult uo
to adopt the cardinal's conclusions. ' '
Hero I ventured to Intoraupt hl.s eminence
"Yes , " said 1 , "and your eminence's view ;
seem to bo those of most of the Itoroan dlgnl
tarles with whom I have spoken on the sub
Ject. Gibbons' pamphlet practically refute
all the arguments of those who profess to re
gard the Kulghts of Labor as a secret so
ciety.1' .
Uls eminence avoided a direct answer ti
this blunt rcinari ; .
"The cardinals report is very able , " sale
he. "Tho church should bo very tolcran
and conciliating with democracies. Such at
association may , after all , not bo a secrc
society In the sense condemned by tin
church , but this does not Imply that tin
church is hostile to Individuals. "
N. 11. Hero 1 understood the cardinal ti
refer to capitalists.
"Wocannot admit such doctrines as thosi
of Henry George , denying thn njcht to owi
private property. Ills doctrines are dene
against all the teachings of the bible. Cat
wo burn our blblo to please George. "
Then , returning to the original theme , In
continued : "There Is only one straight Urn
guiding ns , but wo must distinguish bclweei
theory and tttitli. The facts arc truth , bu
It may be opportune or Inopportune to de
One theories in countries llko America
where piotcstants aud catholics necessaril ;
mix together. U mar be advlsabi
to grant great liberty and Independence. Al
what independence Is enjoyed b :
Armenia and other oriental catholics. Th
primacy ot the Pope ( his eminence , spo-aklni
French , used the word prlumto ) must bo up
held , but the church may dovclope vurion
manners. "
Again I Interrupted : "If the holy ofTic
shares your emlncnca's views , I suppose I
quite possible that the question of th
knights may be quietly burled1
lint aualn the cardinal avoided a dlrec
reply. After some further talk regardlnc tin
future ot American Catholicism , ho walkci
with me and bade me farewell at the door
wishing me all good to America.
U virtually \ certain that the condemna
tlon of the Canadian knights will not bo re
versed. The American knlghU will eswp

broke tbe ice , u it were , ot her wldowe * re
servo by visiting this morning for the first
tlmo In a quarter ot a century , a place of
mbllc entertainment. This was the Olym-

jesldcs the Immense space used for the men
agerie and the stables. In the center of the
irorncmula n royal dais , sumptuously deco
rated , had been especially provided for her
majesty ; but , much llko the late king of Ba
varia , she had the whole entertainment to
icrsclf. except that she was attended by
I'rlncess Louise , Prlnco Henry ot Hattmi-
jcrg , and the children of the Duke of Con-
naught. Tnree quarters of an hour with thoraces
races and the dancing elephants satisfied the
royal party who decided to enjoy an after-
noun's stroll through the enormous stables
where live hundred animals were at their
luncheon ,
Evidently this jubllso year Is making the
queen democratic and again accessible. Al
ready tradesmen , milliners , pastry cooks and
artisans feel that a now Impulse has been
given to business by her drawing rooms and
re-cntranco to society. Tlio smiles of royalty
seem to Impress the business of London In
about the same manner that Wall street
points Impress speculators.
The Hattenbergs In the evening visited
Colonel .Maulcson's opera , where the Chicago
diva , Marie Kngle , made her operatic debut
In London as Martha in Flntow's opera.
When slmsaug "Tlio Last Rose of Summer. "
and In the famous quartette , she warmed
momentarily an Immense audience that oth-
ei wise shivered In arctic atmosphere. Her
puiotonos , her grand technique and meth
ods of culture , with which Americans arc
too familiar to need more than these refer
ences , wore well seconded by'Mmo , lias-
troiter as Nancy Slgnor , Del Piiento as
Pluukvt , and Havclll as Lconcc. Miss Engle
may bo regarded as having scored a success.
Apropos of American singers and opera , It
Is to-day announced that Miss Decca , a
daughter ot Judge Johnson , of Washington ,
has joined Carl Kosa'tt troupe as third
soprano , and that Miss Norton , or Nordlsen ,
after due mourning for her lirst husband-
who has never been heard of since his cele
brated balloon ascension will marry an
English gentleman. But it Is said that she
will not leave the stage.

i saw M. Gaston Worth to-day , the king ol
Parisian milliners. M. Worth told me tba
ho had been concentrating1 his attenttor
lately upon Mis. James Brown Potter , am
the result Is the completion of three deliclou :
inspirations for Mrs. Potter's debut as tlu
governess in "Man and Wife. " Those threi
chefs d' ocuvres are of perfect simplicity , ele
guuce and taste. Inspiration number ono 1 :
of lilac crepe , on a soft , clinging material
admirably suited to Mrs. Potter's beauty.ove ;
u plain skirt , minutely pleated dowr
the front. A Greek tunic floats grace
fully over the jupe , rather lull In fron
and knotted behind , low down. Thi
waist Is outlined by a soft , black sash , tie !
negligently In front. The back of the corsage
sago is finely pleated and set Into a Loul
Trclze collar ot blsequlpure , forminir sovora
points In front. The sleeves aio artistic-ill ;
full to the elbow , thence to the wrist ex
ceedingly tight lilting , and covered wit )
qulpuio similar to that on the neck. A larg
hat of coarse , black straw , turned up on tin
side , to bo woin with this dress , Is orna
muntetV with a huge bow of black silk gauze
Inspiration number two is a mornlni
costume of brown woolen material , also sof
and clinging , a very long tunlque , slight ! ;
draped and lifted In graceful folds over th
petticoat to match. The corsage Is shlrrei
at the neck and at the Waist
The former simulates n collat
with three rows of narrow golden looi
fringe , while the latter Is girded by
broad band ot fancy metallic braid , edge
with golden fringe that ties once In front am
hangs down In two short ends. A perfectl ;
charming llttlo Henri Deux toquet , of browi
lalnage. has a laro bow of suede corded nt
bens on the lott sldo for the solo ornaments
tlon. With this gown a brown marble Is ate
to bo worn of the same material as the drcs
collar , and points back anil front of bavan
cloth and entliely lined with the same tint
The third inspiration Is composed of llgli
mlcnonetto or relscda bengallno , outline
Into squares by narrow , dark green an
cream Rtrlpcd jupe. It falls I
broad , flat pleats all ronn
whllo a short tunlquo.taken far back bohlnt
Is slightly rotrousse. This gown has a dh

turnud back from the chest with large renor :
over a full pleated jabot of cream silk Indli

Potter docs not shirk her dally rehearsal

eagerly. Facing such an audience as she

The Ofllclnl Declaration Concerning
the Attempt Upon the Czar.
ST. PKTKiisnuno , March 10. The follow
ing Is the ixuthori/ed/offlcial declaration con
cerntng the attempt .upon the life of the czar :
It Is not believed that the active society ol
the constitutional party has such an exten
sive aud Influential following as some for
elgh journals represent. The constitutional
ista , Instead of ? w . w.holjj. Jltatlncl
from the ntyjlUsu , are nothing but
executors of a/mlldl-rlprogramme , cloakinj
the violent methods of nihilism so as to se
cure a certain amount of toleration from the
educated , thoughtful classes In Russia. The
czar's advisers are convinced from long ob
servation that the influential classes in Rus
sia do not consider Iiiat the time has yet ar
rived in tue political dovelopements of tb <
empire for the Introduction of constitutional
government by his majesty. Nor do the pan
slavlst party desire constitutionalism. On tlu
contrary they declare that autocratic form o ;
government , tendered by n just administra
tion of codified law , is desirable until iKus
sian territorial expansion has reached tin
limits set for It by the pan-slavish Ideas
The state socialism recently promoted li
Germany by Prluce'Blsmarck Is being carefully
fully- studied by the liusslai
government , the czar being well
disposed In .favor of such progrcsslvi
economy changes In the territories unde
Russian sway as shall conduce to the hapnl
ness anil welfare ot the Kusslan people. Tlu
c/.ar was deeply impressed by the terrible clr
cumstanees under which his father mot hi :
death. The last attempt on his own life pro
jejted by the nihilists has produced a toellnv
of horror. Still it is unlikely thai
it will lead to- a change of hi :
previous policy. Uls magesty cannot bit
view with mingled bitterness and regret tin
position In which he Is placed by the threat
and perils continually besetting him. 11 <
deploics the necessity which constantly ex
Ists for costly oxtenstve precautions for hi :
personal safety whenever he desiring t <
travel or even to move beyond the pro
clncts of the palace , restrictions
which Impede his movements and prevent hh
seeing his people as they aieand judging fni
himself concerning their neeus. The czar'i
aversion to plunging Kussla into arulnoiu
and fruitless war continues as great as ever
No chamru in his convictions In this respec
is expected by Ills advisers , except In con

Jiro how. relations might bo even
moro cordial but for the captious conduct ol
M. ( ioblct , who has set his mind on liavlnc
the recent bishop of Gap appointed to the see
of Audi. As that prelate has made
himself ridiculous by a pastoral on wcl
nurses who are the chief ornaments of this
diocese the Vatican demurred , and n sllglil
coldness resulted. IJut this Is merely an In
cldcnt , and to prove tlio reality of the Franco
Itoman rapprochement , Mgr. Richard , arch
bishop of Paris , will bo created a cardinal a
the next consistory.
Contrary to tlio assertions of the
nicss , Franco did not thank the vat
lean for its Intervention In favoi
of the tseptennate. Franco was , however
rather pleased with the Jacoblul letters that
otherwise. A sovres vase and a golden Inl

testify President Grcvy's satisfaction. Then
U no truth , either. In the rumors of papa

that the means of unravelling the man's mys- *

the satisfaction of the president. When
Lawton walked out thn piesidont said to an

fellow worth a solid million. ' ' Another of
