ble Special to the llr.n.J Three statesmen
have concentrated the attention of all ( ler
many upon themselves to such an extent
that during the week politics and general
news have given way to gossip about the
health of this ono or that one jot' the famous
Invalids. The emperor passed the crisis of
his Illness last week , but nevertheless only
on Thursday of t'lls week began aealn any
thing like his regular routine , Blsmark's
illness , though little spoken about , seemed
for a day to bo rnoro serious than eltner of
the others. 1 am told that neuralgia twinges
kept the prince awauo night after night
mult ho was exhausted from the.
constant strain that seemed to threaten
a general break up of his system.
Karly In the week , while the emperor was
still lighting for his life , Berlin gossips wills
pcred that HIsmarck was too good a courtier
to go before his master or to wait lon after
him. The bourse also seemed to BFI some
what of this opinion , for stocks , which were
only slightly affected by the kaiser's Illness ,
and not even momentarily lowered by the
crown prince's danger , were for two days
considerably depressed bv the prince's con
dition. For two days also the "health of
1'rlnee Bismarck" formed the central point.
of every money article to the exclusion even
of ouch exciting topics us the new Servian
cabinet or the prospective failure of the
Italian loan. Illsinarck was better on Thins-
day. Ho saw both the emperor and I'rlnce
William. This summer lest will , It Is said ,
put his health again beyond the danger
point.
= > TIIK cnowjf WINCH'S CONDITION.
Kegardlng the crown prince , 1 .send here
with an Interview with 1'rof. Virchovv , the
greatest living authority on cancer , By a
mlcrossoclc examination of the sections cut
from the prince's throat Dr. Vlichow saved
him from an operation seriously endangering
his volcn , and even llfo itself. At present
accounts Vlrchow and other very eminent
authorities say the crown prince is not only
In no danger , but is in much better condition
than many other peisons who have been
completely cured of this throat trouble. So
far from being unique is the prince's
disease that half a dozen more
or less eminent speakers have been
cured of the same disease in various Euro
pean countries during the past few years.
The truth seems to bo that a wife's over-
anxiety , together witli a deep-seated super
stition that the emperor would bo succeeded
by his grandson , led to entirely too much im
portance being attached to what , In a loss
exalted personage bo regarded as a very com
mon place trouble. Add to this the sensa
tional lying ot ono London and half a dozen
Paris ptpers and the nervousness of several
general medical practitioners trusted with a
disease new to them but old to throat spec
ialists , and you have the secret ot the great
amount of tnss made over his Illness.
TIIK itiriion's : HKALTII.
Unfortunately the great anxiety felt re
garding the emperor has more serious foun
dation. A cold was caught at Nlel when ho
refused to leave the windy deck of his re
viewing steamer because "Sailors so seldom
have a chance to sco mo hold with old soldiers
contempt for carnages. I might as well bo
enclosed In a carriage as down below thcro
In the cabin. " This cold shook the emperor
more than any Illness since ho began his second
end youth. His strength has been more ex
hausted by It , aad his recovery has been
Blower and more dlftlcult than ever before.
Bladder pains caused by gravel have re
peatedly kept him awake at night and drained
his strength. Tim wonderful old man , ac
customed with surprising ease to throw off
all sickness , has somewhat retarded his re
covery by Imprudence. Sunday , In the mo
mentary absence of his attendants , ho at
tempted to rise as usual. When being lifted
tip he said , with something between a laugl :
and a groan , " 1 thought myself strong
enough to pull up the tiees by the roots , ichp
dacht , Icho cucnte , noch baumo , nuszlchcn. '
Since then 1m has been more cautious. To
ward the end ot the week ho began
regular appearances at the window
of thepalace. . It has been an an god
for the emperor to start for Kins
on the 25th , but he will bo foiccd to make the
journey in two relays , as last year ho fainted
on arrival at Ems. Three weeks at Ems ,
three or four days on a little Island near Con
stance , three weeks at Gastolu from the sum
mers piograinme. At Gasteln two emperors
will certainly meet , and it is said on good
authority that a third emperor will be pres
ent. Ono great medical authority said to mo
recently : "The emperor's vitality Is so won
derful that once get him away from Berlin
into the open air and he will probably quickly
get back his strength and bo as fresh
nnd strong as over. Pleasant stoiles
nre continually coming to light to Miow
how justly he is the most beloved ruler of
modern history. Kccoutly a little eight-year-
old peasant child of F.rofold wrote the em
peror asking him if he would send his pic-
lure to her little brother and self. Her letter
was addressed to king in llurlln , but signed
simply "Mailanna. " Accordingly the emperor -
peror had the school registers of that postal
district searched till Marlannu was fuuud ,
and then bis picture to her.

llto Wheat and Coffee Collapses Kr
aut Against the Share Iilst.
Nr.w VoiiKJuno 10. I Special Telegram to
the lir.K. ] The sudden collapse of the great
bull speculation In wheat and coffeewtth the
attendant fall in es of operators and firms en
gaged In Inflating th o two commodities and
flurries In the monej market , reacted sharply
against the share list during the first half of
the week. The professional bears and room
traders , nearly all of whom were on the short
side , availed themselves of the opportunity
of these stirring events to undermine confi
dence and to bring about a very unsettled
condition of afTalrs. Their attacks were well
distributed and quite effective , resulting In it
drop of 1 to r > % points , although the decline
In the most prominent stocks was compassed
within a range of 1 } { to 3 points. A number
of stop orders were reached on the way down
and them was considerable covering with the
long stock that came out. After the excitement
In wheat and coffee had subsided the specula
tive atmosphere cleared up and there was
( Iitltii a rally , but dullness set In again near
the close , and on Friday there was a reac
tion. In various quarters the bursting of the
wheat deal was regarded as a good thing for
the market In the future. The decision of
the inter-state commerce com in Isslon on the
long and short haul clause , where the roads
come Into competition witli water communi
cation and foreign lines , was regarded as
liberal to railways ahd had considerable in
fluence in bringing people over to the bull
side , especially after London followed with
free buying on the strength of It With a
change of sentiment came a very conserva
tive teeling , and. recognizing the narrow
ness of the market. It was generally ad
mitted that nothing like a boom could be ex
pected In the Immediate future , and , in fact ,
more or less feverlshness is expected until
liquidations In wheat are finally completed.
Some favorable factor Is still needed to draw
In the outside public and also to enlist the
active support of the capitalists now out of
Wall street. Kxnctly where this factor Is to
come from or what It Is to be Is not clear at
the moment to the average run of operators.
There is n lar.-e class who look to an Invest
ment demand likely to grow out of July dis
bursements as the path to increased activltv ,
and still another who think the gold imports
will pave the wav. It Is just possible that
both these expectations may be realized , and
therctoro the events of the next few weeks
will be watched with much Interest. Trading
In railway mortgages was very moderate ,
and changes , as a general thing , were cor
respondingly sliirhf. Governments ruled
irm throughout , although quotations showed
Jlttle or no change. There was - Impression
pression In forelun exchange , which
declined sharply , first , because of
continued light Inquiry , and sec-
iiid. because of a material Increase
in the supply of bills. The latter were made
botli against securities and wheat taken tor
foreign account , the export demand for the
latter having increased perceptibly after the
wheat corner broke at Chicago. The mone
tary situation was disturbed fora time by the
events already noticed , and also bv the pav-
ment of about 87,000,000 toPhiladelphia
capitalists by the Porter hvndlcato ' on ac
count of the purchase of th'e Diiluth & Iron
Kan eo and other properties In the northwest.
Considerable was done in call loans at 5@0
per cent , and once or twice rates reached Syj
10 per cent , but as the week drew to a close
the market returned to .something like a
normal condition , and plenty of money waste
to bo had at 5' per cent hnrt under , with ex
ceptional transactions as low as 2Q3 per
cent

It was warm for the atlluent In the grand
stand.
It was hot for the Impecunious on the
desiccating boards , and It was incandescent
for the hapless Lincoln's on the diamond.
But notwithstanding tlio torrid meteorolog
ical condition of thlnzs , It Is a very sizable
crotvd of men , young and old , that delights
In a Sunday game of ball hereabouts.
The sun poured down with a vengeance ,
and a sultry breeze was blowing , but for
all that nearly 2ooo men and boys hurried
throtich the turnstile at the Omaha park
yesterday afternoon , filled the grand stand
and crowded the 2r cent seats till they were
as a swarm of Hies on a piece of bread aud
molasses.
In the opening Inning Swift went out
from Hall to Beckley , then Walsh made second
end on a hit past Lan ; ; and a fumble by
Toohey ; Dwyer retired on a throw by Kowo
to first , Walsh going to third , where he was
left , Krehmeyer going out on a high fly to
center.
For the Lincoln's Hall flew out to Bader.
Hccklev hit a beauty tor three sacks over
Messltt's head , and came In on Lang'o safe
to confer. Shaffer hit to short , forcing Lain ;
at second , and the lecaleltrant Kowe took
his seat on a tlnow of Swift's to Dwyer.
In the second , third and fourth tlio Omahas
never saw first , but In the third tliu Lincolns ,
after being goose-egged in one , two , three
order in Iho second , made another tally.
Hart hit for three bases , and came home on
Hall's single over Biirtson's head ; he took
econd on Beckle > 's hit , Messiti took
n Lang's long drive to rteht , ami threw Hall
out at the plate , he having tried to score-
liter tlio ball was caught.
Then in the fouitli they even did better.
Shaller hit a corker which Kouiku allowed to
go thiouuh him ; then Kowo hit to Walsh.
vlio threw to second , extinguishing Shatter ,
towe gaining llrst , Dolan How out to Swltt.
lerr lined a not one out to lett , and just as
iadcr was about to scoop it up , It struck n
clod and bounded way over his head and
nto the carriages , Herr , making a homo
un and driving Kowe lu before him ,
I'oohey reached first on a fumble by Switt ,
but Hart died on a high fly to Kourko.
The score now stood 4 to 0 In laver of the
Lilncolns , and the nlr be an to grow sul
phureous.
But you have heard how Leonldas , cladIn
armor and a butcher's cleaver , stood In the
pass at Thermopylae , aud stemmed the tide
of Persian toomen , but you ought to have
seen the Omahas jump upon Mr. Hart In the
tilth. It gave Manager Kowo tlio night
sweats , and ho vehemently Invocated an in-
.ervention trom the gods , hut tlio gods had
Ul cone over to Council Bluffs , and Dave
could only crimace and bear It.
Kourko cia ked a safe one to cen
ter ; Mcssit followed with a du
plicate past second , and Genlns an-
jther to center. Three straight hits and thu
jasos lull ,
How the crowd did howl 1
Bader then sent one whizzing like a shot
from a catapult to Lan rand that uoutloman
fumbling It , Kourko run home , Baderreached
lirst and Messltt and Genius moved up a bae.
Barston brandished the willow four times
fruitlessly and look his neat. Swift drove ofle
to short , who nipped Messltt at the nlato ,
and still the bases were all occupied. Wiilsh
also sent ono to Herr , which he generously
fumbled , letting Genius In , and Walsh to
lirst. Then Dwyer hit safe to left and Bader
and Swift tallied. Krehmeyer put a stop to
the fun by fouling out to left.
The score was tied , and If the crowd had
had a welkin with them they would have
inadn it ring.
Lincoln , however , In their half Jumped to
the front again , on a hit by Hftll , a steal , a
pass ball and a three baser by Shaffer.
But Omaha didn't earn a continental rap
for a little thing like one run , so they Just
went In and knocked out three themselves.
Kourkediove a sate one to center , Messltt
mother in thosamoearden. and Genius being
tnumped by the ball , the rases were lull.
Bader then toed the scratch and banged
a nasty one at Hart , who pluckily nailed it
and by a quick throw caught Kourko oil third.
Lang then throw to Beckley to nip , Bailer ,
but he didn't. Instead Messitt came in ,
Genlns took third and Uador second. Hart-
sou then hit safe and Genins and Bader
reached the plato. Swift went out to Toohoy ,
Walsh inado a hit , but Bartsou was caught
trying to make third.
For tliu Lincolns Dolan got as far as second
end , and Herr to lirst , but despite amateurish
plays by Swift , Bartson and Bader , ho failed
to do anything better.
At this juncture Dolan , on account ot a
split thumb , received in the. fourth inning ,
gave way to Hoover , as the receiving end of
the battery , and tlio game went on.
It was the seventh , Krehmeyer and Mes-
sett scoied , on a hit by the former , a fumble
by Beckley , a passed ball , and a baser by
( jenlns.
Dcaglo , who had umpired up to this point ,
was hero relieved on account of a painful con
tusion received from a foul tie In the second
inning , nnd Kockwell took his place.
All the Lincolns got in their half of the
seventh , was a two-bairger by Shatter , and a
nice ten dollar line by Kowo for working his
chin too energetically in addressing thu um
pire.
In the eighth the Omahas added four runs
to their total , on Swift's base on balls , Walsh ,
Dwyer and Kourk's sato hits , and Kowo's
wild throw , while the Lincolns
( lid likewise after this fashion :
Herr was hit by the pitcher
and wont to first. Toohey made a home inn ,
Hart struck' out , Hall died at first , Beckluy
hit for three bags , and Lang , who hit to short ,
ran all the bases on that gentleman wild
throw Into the bleaching boards.
The closing Inning was marked by u run
by Genlns for the Omahas , and two for Lin
coln by Herr and Toohev , but as theru was
nothing particularly brilliant In the way of
fielding , by either side , a description
of the play would bo tiresome.
The battle had been a hot and close one ,
with plenty of free hitting and a redundance
of errors , but no one cared aplcayuuesolong
as Omaha won.

.ho Hr.R.J The first dinner of the famous
Butler club was held last evening. Of course
the general was there , the cent ml liguro for
an admiring remnant of the peoples'party
of 18S4 , with a goodly sprinkling of warriors
in his pievlous campaigns. Seventy-six
( Hitlerites In all matched in ( o dinner. But
ler very naturally was tlio principal speaker ,
and no one paid much attention to what the
others said , although Colonel Plympton's
ietinltlon of a simon-nuro Butler man woke
, ip the boys. Butler could not allow
the battle Hag episode to pnss
without mention. In tact ho nuido
It the burden of Ills speech and the text for
a violent attack upon the Cleveland adminis
tration. Atter renewing tiio matter in all Its
aspects and in every sarcastic vein , ho con
cluded : "Wo have sent back to the south
pretty much all wo got from them. Wo have
given them all wo took f torn them In cotton
under the laws. 1 don't complain ot that at
all. Tlieio Is no sentiment there. But we
must stop somewhere In this slvlng upevcry-

return the slaves captured from them. 1

to the BKK. | President Seelyo , of Amlierst
college , Is authority for the statement that
the extraordinary and Inexplicable decision
of the Andover board of visitors In the case
of the accused professors was not signed by
him. This has been the belief In well-in
formed circles , but until this announcement
from Amlierst the truth has b.u-n sedulously
kept a hecret by the other two visitors , The
friends of Prof , Smyth nro already in print
boldly speaking of the decision as "acaie-
lully matured plot."a Jesuitical conspiracy , "
tlio cut came of the "malignant hato" of
Prof. Kdward A. Park aud his coterie of
superammted clergymen , who. It Is alleged ,
have been tollowing Prof. Smyth over Rine.e
ho came to Andover. The tooling over the
outcome of the Investigation Is bitter in the
extreme , and the appeal to the courts which
Is to come will by no means nllay the excite
ment , though It may change tlio verdict.
That a split in the Congregational body Is to
be the ultimate result is now baldly a matter
of doubt.

solldatlng Its business with that of the Sco * ,

to do. The Fouitli dlstilct Included about a i

nearly thirty. Tlio former had been In the '

habit of collecting about SMJ.OCO or $1)0,000 )
year , the latter S'J.OOO.uoo or 3OCH,000. ; ! ) So it jj
was not Mil prising tlut In older tor consoli
dation tlio lesser "Fouitli' ' was merged luthe
greater "Second. " But in doing this , the
president retired from lolllce Collector Kuhl-
inelr , ot Burlington , and retained Collector
Stewart , ot DCS Molnes , whoso headquarters
havu been at Davenport. Then there
was music In thu air. Kuhlmeler was a life
long democrat and popular with his party.
Stewait was selected by General Weaver tad
was very unpopular with his party. Charges
of a cilminn ! nature had even been preferred
against him , and his appointment lu thu llrst
place \\iis a meat surprise. But when he
was allotted to remain and the good faithful 1
democrat was compelled to walk the plank ,
the demociats of southeastern Iowa were ? &
angry and they sent In some lively protests. *
Foi once tlieir kicking was toU and the
president has issued an order making tlio
suivivlng district the fourth aad retiring
Stewart and leaving Kuhlmeler In charge of
tlio consolidated district. That makes thu
district with fourteen counties and less than s
fclOO.ouo of annual business absorb Urn dls- J

and Stewart's It lends aru mad and threaten

BAI.I.WIK , Mo. , June 10. The Baliwln and
Manchester stage , which runs from hero to
Dairntt's on tlio Missouri Pacllic twicu a day ,
s stopped yesterday afternoon about 0
o'clock when returning and about a mile
from the latter point by three masked men
who had been concealed in the thick underbrush -
brush which skirts the road on both sides
near what is known as Sugar creek bridge.
As tliu sta o with tit teen passengers approached
preached the robbers advanced with drawa
revolvers and ordeied driver Bennett to stop
and the passengers to form In lino. W. Sup-
pun , ot Ciess Hi os. & Co. , Wiii.-aw , HI. , waa
tlio first to descend and was lelleved of a
watch , valuable Knight Templar badge
and monov altogether about $75. Ho had )

watch. He had secreted about $70. Mr. San- - ' * ;
dersou was lolleved ofVI00. . lie had about t >
SI,100 on his person In money , besides a A
watch and diamonds , worth altogether about )
S..ooo. all of which ho saved , tluowlng the
watch into tlio grass. Henry Dlehl gave up
S.MJ nnd his watch. As lie stepped out ho f
banded 3irojto his wife , which she secreted - .
in her bosom. Henry Seholp and Frank Her- '
zoj escaped by running away without being. ,
perceived , Hhowing well that the robocrs T
were not accomplished in their profession
and no doubt new hands at the business. Tha
ladies were not molested.
There is some dispute as to tlio number of i -
men actually engaged , some claiming there
were six more , with drawn revolvers , con
cealed In the underbrush In easu the pussen-
geis .should offer any resistance , but It can .
not bu authenticated. The masks were mode ! 1
of red handkerchiefs , with holes cut In toy t „ t ]
them , and ono had a slcevo of an undershirt
drawn over his head as tliu only covering. '
Considering the amount of money and val
uables owned by thu passengers , the robbers'
made a vcty poor haul , hccuilntr only about
8i.V ) out of an estimated $2,400. Considerable ?
excitement prevails , and u nosso Is out scourIng -
Ing thu country In search , but an theio Is no/
clue and no knowledge ot thy direction the
robbers took , they will probably escape. The' '
robbers were young men from 20 to 23 yean
