Mackenzie will bo back hero Monday and
the crown prince will return to Berlin as soon

Ride. My accounts to-day from sure sources
confirm everything sent you In previous dis.
patches. There Is nnd there can be no greater
change for the better in the prince's condi
tion. All the medical aid under the sun can
do little for him nt present. It is very doubt
ful whether he will submit to the operation
which the doctors nro talking of. His cheer
fulness Is marvellous. To these who do
not know his Immense force of charac
ter , . his iron will , his complete
resignation to the fnto which
ho has long seen Impending , would have
been taken by surprise by the announcement
of cancer , but the sufferer has nothing which
ho did not suspect before. It Is to bo ro-
grcttcd that some purveyors of news cannot
imitate the self-command of the crown
princo. In Blowitz's dispatch stating that
the kaiser had fainted and announcing his
Rpccdy demise , together with that of the cm-
press nnd crown prince , nnd making as clean
0 sweep of the stage as occurs in the last act
of "Hamlet , " deserves to bo ranked ns the
wildest concoction ever sent to n great news
paper. Even the Times itself allowed Its
Berlin correspondent on Friday to utter
bitter sarcasm on M. Blowitz's feverish
romance. It has given great offence in high
quarters , both hero and in Ger
many. M. Blowitz should bo warned
that ho often goes dangerously near
making the Times' Paris correspondent the
ridicule of Europe , and If ho is now going to
lose his head altogether , whenever something
unexpected happens , he will bo regarded us n
nuisance to bo peremptorily suppressed.
Even the crown prince's condition is not as
Immediately important from a public point of
View ns the tremendous slap in the face which
Bismarck has delivered to Russia in ordering
the Imperial bank of Germany to refuse to
negotiate any moro Uussian securities. What
B moment to choose for such a hostile demon
stration Just as the war is coming to Berlin.
Lord Salisbury's confident predictions as tc
the continued muintcnunco of the peace of
Europe might soon bo falsified if the czar
only felt himself strong enough to encounter
the new triple alliance. Ho will have to bcui
what ho cannot resent.
But an additional element of disturbance
has been added to the many others accumulat
ing In Europe. If Kussla nnd Franco could
get up nn alliance similar to the ono existing
between Germany , Austria and Italy , Lord
Salisbury's reputation as a herald of peace
would probably soon receive a fatal blow ,
The czar will merely bldo his time.
In regard to English politics it may bo posl
lively stated , notwithstanding all rumors U
the contrary , that Lord Salisbury has re
> solved to go on with his team , which hni
great merit , being entirely under his control
vllis nephew , Mr. Balfour , is to bo pushct
forward as much as possible and made tin

as n warming pan. It is true tha
Mr. Bulfour has never shown mucl
brilliancy In the house or clscwhero , but hi
is a nephew of "my uncle , " nnd therefore ht
Is marked out for first placo. Obsorvo'thcn
that ministerial journals will henceforth losi
no opportunity of extolling the firmness
courage and genius of the Irish secretary

great superiority to the poor creatures tossei

but there nro three men outsid

THE BERLIN BUDGET.
An Anxious , AVcary.some Week For
the Whole German Umpire.
[ Cnwriulit ISffi biiJtimr * Gordon Uemictt.1
BEKUN , Nov. 12. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to the Bur. . ] This has been
nn anxious , wcarysomo week for the whole
German empire , especially so for Prussia.
There was nn uncxplnlnablo superstitious be-
lef amongst Germans high and low that the
rowu prince would die before the kaiser had
n any way prepared the nation for the worst
lews from the crown princo. But very few
txpectcd that bad news would come this wln-
er , and still fewer anticipated serious effects
rom the prince's illness on the emperor and
empress. In Berlin and elsewhere
hroughout Germany nothing has been
alked of except the crown prince , and many
complications nro resulting from his illness ,
ivcn the bourse panics have been less felt
.linn has the anxiety for the prince. In Bcr-
in it is now strongly felt that the crown
wince's death , If it occurs , would bo quickly
'ollowcd by those of the kaiser nnd kniserin ,
while war might follow almost before Prince
William was firmly seated on the imperial
hronc. Three deaths and war are not en
couraging prospects , yet this is what the av
erage Berliner expects from day to day and
t would not bo easy to shako their gloomy
'alth. The crown princess receives any
imount of rough-tongucd abuse , which is not
.o the credit of German politeness. It has
become an article of faith , oven in good soci
ety circles , that the princess' self-willed bo-
lef in English doctors and in her own ability
0 select methods and places for the princo's
cure nro Inrgely responsible for what has oc
curred to the prince. It Is hard and unfair
udgment which lias thus been given , but one
lot apt to bo changed very quickly.
Aside from the crown prince , there nro
snly n few items of general interest. Prof.
Seeker's painting , bought recently by the
Corcoran art gallery at Washington for 10,000
marks , was shipped this week from Bremen.
The picture is a largo canvass , about seven
'cet long , with a dozen or inoro fig
ures. Pope Julius H sits scanning
the Just recovered Apollo Belvidcrc.
Near film nro cardinals and priests ,
to ono side Raphall , In the back ground
Michgcl Angelo and near Vittoria Colonu ,
the latter the best painted head of them all.
n the foreground stands the statute painting
negotiated for by Dr. Welling , of the Cor
coran nrt gallery , bought by cable last month.
It goes to join a good deal of Prof. Beck's
earlier works in America. Ono notable
: > icturo of his is in the Stewart collection.
American ( check ) recently got thebctterol
some of the lackeys of cffeto European
despotisms. A highly respectable , well-to-
do resident of Brooklyn Is in Berlin sight
seeing. The crown princo's palace stimuli
his fancy and accordingly ho started to ceo as
much of it as might be. The palace is not
open to the public , so ho was stopped by 11
servant "but , " said ho to the haughti
flunky , "I urn a friend of Queen Vletorhi
and was assured by her majisty that hei
daughter's palace would bo shown us even ii :
their absence. " For various reasons the
crown prince's mother-in-law is looked uj
to with some awe in the pnlueo , so flunky No
1 shut up like n Jnckknifo and humbly wuivci
the party on to his comrades , where th <
same tale was told with the sumo effect. As
the Brooklynltcs wandered through tin
palace the servant with extreme politcnesi
assured them that the palace was dismantlcc
nnd owing to the princo's absence ho wni
therefore not to bo seen. Meanwhile , b ;
keeping their eyes open the party had seei
pretty much nil they wished and were read ;
to retreat in good order.
Consul General Rains has returned fron
inspecting the Berlin consular district am
finds n very noticeable improvement in tin
service , a previous inspection effort bcini
made by him to get out a set of standard in
voice blanks which shall do away with th <
present discordant system of allowing cacl
consul to print these blanks according to hi
own ideas.
Miss Alice Whltacro was exceedingly we ]
received last night at the singing academi
concert under Jounchlm's leadership. A
Berlin audiences are notoriously critical o
foreign singers , tin American's success is tvl
thn moro noteworthy.
The lovely channel In the Rhino Is bcin
cleared and deepened with dynamite , to th
destruction of poetry and the salvation o
ships.
The official statement that the crow
prince ceitainly has a cancer has bee
nwaltcd for forty-eight hours , but novrrthc
less creates the greatest sensation in Bcrll
and will bo n severe shook to the rest of th
empire since yesterday's favorable nowsmli
lead the great mass of people. Bismarck' '
return to Berlin will probably be followc
later In the week by a council of these wh
control state policy in order to make such ni
rangcments as the emperor's ago nnd h :
successor's illness render ncccssarj
All the reports regarding the en
peror's bodily prostration nro invented an
grossly exaggerated. The bad news rcgardin
the crown prince has been n great nienti
strain for such an aged man , but so fr
fortunately without effect on his gcnen
health. Parliamentary leaders , statesmc
nnd generals were warned yesterday of tli
princo's condition and have begun to npjic :
in Berlin in order to bo ready for impoitai
decisions of state affairs which must bo mac1
soon. It is regarded as curious hero that tl
crown princo's tendency toward cancc
which will probably place nn enemy <
France on the throne , Is Inherited fro ;
Queen Louisa , whoso early death indirect !
from polypus growth near the heart WE
caused , It was thought , by the anxieties an
hardships of the Napoleon wars.
Yesterday the American colony met ni tl

PAIUS ( via. Havre ) , Nov. 12. fNcw York
Herald Cable Special to thoBnr. . ] Great
agitation continues on the boulevards at the
chambers. The political atmosphere is
charged with electricity and public Indigna
tion is fanned Into n flame by n perfect maze
of Intrigues. Scandals , falsehoods and frauds
must soon like a thunderbolt find vent some
where nnd precipitate n crisis. Just ns the
Caffurcl trial , so Is now the Wilson Inquiry
developing Into n public Impeachment of
Grovy. Parisians nnd the swnrms of pchits
crovcs of the boulevards are nlready snarl
ing , growling nnd snapping their teeth at the
president of the republic. At nil
the street corners nro dlsplnyed
hundreds of caricatures , depicting In rain
bow hues M. Grovy , M. Wilson and the
interior of the Elysco palace , transformed
Into n broker's shop for nn instant. Lo
Pilorl , a sort of wild cat or illustrated paper
published at Mont Martre , publishes nn
enormous cartoon entitled "Chasses du
Paradls. " It represents God standing on the
steps of paradise , brandishing In his hand n
drawn sword , on the blade of which Is In
scribed "France. " Paradlso is labelled
"Elysco Palace" nnd bounding down the
steps , playing before the drawn sword of the
iVlmlghty , nro two lugubrious robbers , In
tended to represent M. Grevy nnd M. Wilson.
Jencath this cartoon is printed in flaming
etters the second verso of the third chapter
t the Book of Genesis.
"And the woman said unto the serpent ,
'Wo ' may cat of the fruit of the trees of the
jardcn.1"
Other caricatures and lampoons displayed
iy every illustrated newspaper in Paris nro
lither too blasphemous or too indecent to de-
cribe. The situation is getting worse nnd
ivorso. M. Grevy has announced in unmis-
.aknblo language to his political friends that
10 will not think of resigning until Wilson
: ms been actually tried before a tribunal and
Ills guilt clearly established. Then nnd then
nly will ho retire. M. Grevy's friends mean
while remain silent , but their enemies breathe
"orth smoke nnd lire.
To-day M. Paul dc Cassngnar writes in
Antoritc : "Austere nnd rlgidGrovy scatters
o the winds nil the traditions of the republics
of antiquity. Ho forgets VIrginius , who
slew his only daughter because she had
been dishonored. Ho forgets Manlius
Forqimtus , who killed his own
son for disobeying orders. Instead of
'ollowlng the precept of the Roman republic ,
jrovy lavishes pardon nnd indulgence , nnd
actually covers with his presidential clot. * the
dishonored son-in-law , who committed rob
bery to the benefit of Grevy's own family.
So Grevy will remain president if for no
other object than at least to bo able to pardon
iVilson in case the tribunals of Franco con
vict him of felony. "
For the moment chaos seems to have seized
upon the administrative authority of the
country. A parliamentary inquiry is going
on trying some of the persons accused. The
perfect of police conducts still a third investi
gation nnd ho himself is pursued by each of
ho others , nnd in the midst of all this Boul-
nngcr emerges from nrrest nnd will coino
prancing on the stage in the midst of the gen
eral convulsion.

Cable Special to the Bin : . ] Prince William
left San Rcmo at 9 o'clock this morning ,
traveling in a special carriage , accompanied
by several members of his suite. I was
standing on the platform of the station when
ho arrived with his mother , the crown
princess , his sister , Count Sceekcndoff nnd
two German doctors. The future emperor is
n hard-featured , manly but unsympathetic
young man of middle hclghth , clean shaven ,
long tawny moustache , hnwty and rather for
bidding. Ho studiously acknowledged the
courtesy of the Italian officials who had turned
out to meet him nnd confined his civility to
his fellow-countrymen , who stood bowing
nnd scraping in the waiting room. The prince
were a brown tourist suit. I noticed that his
right car was stuffed with cotton. The
crown princess looked sunburnt and healthy.
She were a dark blue woolen costume nnd
blue straw hat. The prince kept the train
waiting some time while ho chatted with his
family. As it was about to puff in the di
rection of Genoa , ho playfully remarked to n
Prubsian noble who had been presented to
: iim : "Also Ich Reiso noch tiicht nach Monte

This , ho thinks , will prolong the patient's

against this course of treatment , as ho fears
the crown prince may euceumb under it. Ho
hopes to prolong the princo's life for n year

took a very wandering route and only
got as far as Chicago yesterday.
When arrested he confessed the
crjmo and gave un all of the money except

It in front of his face. Bickell watched hla
chance , nnd on the day \horobberyskipped
into the vault , took out llvo packages

store which Mrs. Engel has managed since
the arrest of her husband , was draped in
mourning. In the back room lay the bodies
of Lings ; nnd Engel. The haggard face of
Mrs. Engel as she passed through the room
frequently was pitiful.
The bodies of Engel nnd Lingg were In
their cofllns nnd no ono was permitted to
take more than ono look as ho passed along.
That portion of Lingg's face which was
shattered by the fulminating cartridge had
been lllled up with chemicals und plaster of
paris. A bandage hid the wound from gare ,
otherwise the face was well pro-
served. In the frown on his brow
there was a trace of awful determination
which must have nerved the bomb maker to
put the candle in his mouth. The duel gleam
of that glaring cyo was still perceived be
tween the half parted eyelids. Engcl's face
was as calm and indifferent as when ho
stood on the scaffold yesterday. Hardly ono
out of twenty who went into Engcl's ' store to
view the remains spoke their minds in En
glish.
At 10 o'clock the casket containg the body
of Fischer was taken to the homo of his wife.
Around the house was a great crowd of
women nnd children. Mrs. Fischer was at
the house of ono of the neighbors when the
body of her husband arrived , but as soon as
it was carried into the house she was escorted
there by two fcmnlo friends. She was suf
fering greatly , and her actions were some
what hysterical. She stopped occasionally
and throw her arms around ono or the other
of her friends and wept bitterly.
The doors and windows of Chris Spies'
house , where the body of the dead anarchist
lies , wcro barred and would not bo opened to
anyone. Long strips of white and blaek crane
swung from the door bell. At the top of the
symbols of mourning was a largo black rose ,
also made of crape , from the middle of which
streamerH of red ribbon fluttered. From the
moment the dead body arrived , the house has
been surrounded by crowds of inquisitive
spectators who wcro anxious to got a look at
the dead man's face. No body was gratified.
Taken to Jollet.
CIUCAOO , Nov. 13. At 1.03 p. m. to-day a
train on the Chicago & Alton railroad bear
ing away Fieldcn and Schwab to prison at
Jollct left the union depot. Some of Flelden'a
friends wcro at the dcpot to see him off.
Mrs. Schwab , together with lit.- : two chil
dren nnd Mrs. Sehnaubclt , came about 9
o'clock , and Flelden and Schwab
wcro released from their cells. Schwab
brought down a stool and conversed with
his wife and mother for nearly two hours ,
separated by iron bars and a wire netting.
Mrs. Schwab was clad in mourning , in mem
ory , perhaps , of the previous day's event.
Before parting Schwab fondly kissed
his children many times and hugged themand
retired to his cell. Mrs. Schwab left weep
ing. At 10 o'clock Mrs. Fieldcn came in
with a baby in her arms and accompanied by
her little girl , and also n neighbor. Mrs.
Fielden cried a great deal while talking with
her husband.
About 11:45 : they parted with their wives
nnd were then taken into the jail office where
J. A. Foster , one of their counsel in the trial ,
talked to them and bid them good byo.
Schwab told Foster that ho regretted the
death of Spies very much and wished that
his life had been spared.
Ten minutes after twelve Fielden nnd
Schwab were handcuffed together nnd also u
pair of old rusty leg irons were put on them ,
locking them together. Both requested that
their clothing and papers bo sent to their
wives , which they were told would bo done.
The men then made their way awkwardly
down the steps into the jail court , their
walking being very much impeded by leg
irons. They took a hack , in which wcro dep
uties , nnd were driven to the station.
JOI.IET , 111. , Nov. 13. The train reached
Jollet nt 2:1)0 : ) and the convicted anarchists
were marched up the graveled road to the
penitentiary. Immediately after their ar
rival therein , Ucv. Mr. Walter , prison chap
lain approached them und endeavored to learr ,
their particular religious creeds ,
Neither of the men seemed tc
receive the revcrond gentleman will
any degree of friendship and answered him
in n nonchalant manner. Their convcrsatior
was of short duration and Warden Me-
Claughrey directed theprlsoncrs to an innoi
room , where they were stripped nnd bathed
After this they wcro given a striped suit ami
shorn of their long beards and hair. The men
presented a melancholy look without thcli
whiskers. Fieldcn was given number 8,52 (
nnd Schwab 8,527. They were then taken te
the weighing nnd measuring room where
Fielden tipped the scales at 1UO pounds ant
measured five feet six inches in height
Schwab weighed 1.10 and measured five feel
nine and a quarter Inches. The convlctet
men were then taken to the solitary rooir
where they will remain until Monday wher
they will bo assigned to work. Warden Me
Claughrey said owing to their apparently
fi > cllo ) condition they would bo put at casj
work for n few months , when they would h
all probability bo given something won
laborious. An enterprising museum mm
visited the penitentiary this afternoon
anxious to procure the elothers which hat
been worn by the convicted men. Ho dldu'
get them.
Preparations for tlio Funeral.
CHICAOO , Nov. 13. It was deflhitcly dc
elded this afternoon that the remains o
August Spies should not bo laid in state ii
the Aurora Turn hallo to-morrow. The stat
representative , Frank Staubcr , who is at th
head of the commlttooof arrangements , say
the refusal to allow the remains in the hal
was due to the fear of the owners that th' '
police would revoke their license t
sell liquors in case it should b
done. This the owners deny. Tlv
question of the primary disposa
of the dead anarchists was settled this after
noon. They will bo taken to Waldheim com

Slayer Kocho to-day sent for the committee
of arrangements for the funeral of the men
executed Friday , and had n long interview
, vith them. Ordinarily no permit Is required

of this case , the mayor deemed it best for the

not hero. She Is performing n higher duty
In n darkened room below this she is com
fortlng the sister and mother of Spies. "

Nina has not uttered ono cry or shed a slngh
tear. I fear she cannot do so. "
