him In the sa'raa carriage until ttio noxt.fttop-
plug pluoc. Prince Hlsmnrck said ha wus
Anxious thai the emperor should bo spared
all unnecessary fatigue , nnd requested mo to
loy down the rules as to the number of inter
views which his majesty might safely grant
each day , the duration of such Interviews ,
tc. , etc. I informed the chancellor that I
had already drawn up some rules of the kind
Which I had given to the hoff marshal. Prince
Illsmurck further said ho would bo glad to
assist mo In every way to save the august
patient all worry and fatigue , adding that
Until the foreign princes arrived for the late
emperor's funeral , his majesty need not be
bothered and could remain perfectly quiet. "
Blr Morell Mackenzie deals fully with the
vents of the night of April the llth and the
following day , conscious of the iunorant
clamor that had boon raised against him
Obouttho lll-flitlng canula tubes , which these
who have perused the story understand xvcro
caused , In u great measure , by the error * of
IJr. Hramann In deviating to the right of the
tnodian line when he performed Iho opera
tion of tracheotomy , and of In sorting a tube
that did not lit , and so created a wound that
made it dlflleult for others to fit. "Ou the
pight of April U , the emperor was seized
with severe coughing between midnight and
I o'clock. At 1:30 : a. in. Mr. Hovoll noticed
that although air passed freely through the
eanulu the breathing was accompanied
fcy a noise ns If there was something pro
jecting below the lower end of Iho tube. On
removing the canula the noise ceased , show
ing that the lower cdgo of the posterior part
of the canula must have slightly pressed
on to the posterior wall of the trachea. Ho
Blantud thu tube more away from the right
side and inserted a pad under the lower edge
of the shield. The noise was somewhat less ,
but did not entirely ccaso , and the emperor
also breathed moro quickly than usual. Mr.
Hovell was summoned several times and ou
each occasion relieved the sufferer by plac
ing little pads under the shield. "
"At 8 a. m. I came on duty and determined
to try u now tube , out thought professional
courtesy required that I should request the
presence of Prof , von Bergman , as this tube
was different in shape from uuy of those
which he gave up to mo when the case was
formally surrendered to mo by the German
doctors nt San Homo. Tnero was really no
need of his pruscuco.but il is the etiquette of
the profession , and I therefore summoned
him by messenger. Little did I think that 11
Would have such falal consequences , and it is
no exaggeration to say that these hastily
penned lines proved to bo the emperor's
fleath-warrant. It was 5o'clock in the after
noon before ho arrived. As soon as ho oauio
. into my room I noticed that ho was in
n state of greut excitement. Whether this
agitation was duo lo oxaggernled reports he
may have received us to the emperor's condi
tion or because of n different naturu I am
not aulo to Hay. Hut from ovor-excitoment
Or some other causa von Horgman behaved
In a most extraordinary und altogether unac
countable inanuor. I briefly explained the
circumstances , nnd showed him the tube
Which I had got ready. "
"Wo then proceeded lo the emperor's room
accompanied by Mr. Hovell , each of us carry
ing several tubes. We found the emperor
engaged in writing. The respiration was dis
tinctly audible , but beyond this thcro was not
the slightest indication of uuy ehilleulty in
breathing. Professor von Bergman placed a
chair opi > o.slto the window and waved his
baud for the emperor to sit down upon it.
Thereupon without making any remarks he
Quickly undid the thing which kept the canula
in position , pulled the latter out , and with
considerable force endeavored to Insert ono ,
Which ho had in his hand , and which had not
been provided with the necessary appurte
nances. The instrument wus forced into the
nock , but no air came through it. The em
peror's breathing then became very much
, . embarrassed , and the professor withdrsw
, the tubo. This wus followed by violent
coughing and considerable homorrhago.
Prof , von Horgman next seized a tampon
eanulu covered with sponge , cut the sponge
quickly off and tried to push the tube into
the wind-nipo agnin. Again no air
came through the canula , and it was
clear that Instuad of entering the air passage
it had been forced downward in front of the
trachea , piercing the soft tissue nnd
making what Is technically known us a
falsa passage. Again the professor had to
pull out the lube , nnd ugaln ils withdrawal
Was followed Dy violent coughing and streams
of blood. To my consternation Prof , von
JBorgman then pushed his linger deeply in
i < fie wound , nnd on withdrawing it , tried to
' -'dniort ' another lubo. Hu again failed , bow-
i Tor , and again the attempt was followed by
i jcoughing und by streams of blood. The em
b peror was saved further torture by the ar
f rival of Dr. Bramanu , to whom Dr. von
Bergman at ouco yielded tCo case , and ho ,
J. taking a modnrato-slzod canula. No. 8 , Ger
man measure , passed U with the greatest
i ease into the trachea. "
a "Tho emperor sent for me after he had
fn been In bed , and had somewhat recov-
t erod from the effects of his two hours' tor
turing by von Horgman and asked what thai
man had put into his throat. Ho went on
'I hope you will not allow him to perform
any further oueration on mo. ' I answered
that after what I bad seen that day I shouk
bavo hud to resign if ho had been permittee
' ' to touch the throat of his majesty'again , Ii
the face of this von Uorgman has not host
tatcd to assort that his majesty had ex
j pressed himself to him with fervid gratitude
and shook his hand , all of which is absolute ! ;
false. He not only was barbarous in the ex
tromc , but his action In thrusting Ids tinge :

This proved that an abscess had alread ;

tube had boon pushed In by Bergman. Th
pus was certain to burrow downward to
word the chest , and It was only too llkcl ;
" 'that nearly the whole of the front of tin
neck would be converted into < i lingo r.bsees !
involving widespread disorganisation of th
structures round about the trachea , gradu
ally undermining the patient's health an
trcnsth and leading only too surely to hccti
fever and to death. The fall
complication was In no way the natural re
ult of the disease. H was attributable sole !
\ to Ucrgmun's vicious stubbing with nn ut
u guarded tube and to his Insertion of his un
washed finger. In vlow of the serious a :
pect which the case was assuming I though
1 H right to inform the emperor thut he wn

him to take action upon such matters as h
wished to closeup. . Ho received this con

v t band , saying slowly , 'I nm much obliged t

Shortly after the emperor's d6ath Prlnc
Bismarck sent for Sir Morell Mackenzie ) an

I * "t
nvltod him to rollro with him. to en Intiij'r
room , where ho suggested th'atn bnof report
of the Illness should bo drawn up , Sir Morell
absented and said that ho should
cave for London In n few
days nnd would assuredly wrlto It bo-
ore he departed. Alter this conversation ho
was very much surprised when an onlclal ar
rived the next day from the uilnistcriaui nnd
hsked for It. Ho replied that it was not writ-
en yot. "Dictate It to me , " said the onlclal ,
'I shall bo happy to wrlto It down. " Sir
Slorcll objected that ho could hardly dash
off an Important document In that way. "It
s wanted at the mlnlstcrlum , " remarked the
onlclal , nnd Sir Morell agreed to wrlto It
while the onlclal waited.
THU nni'onT.
Sir Morell wrote as follows ,
Scmoss FitUDRHicKS CUOXA , June 10 , 1933.
It Is my opinion that the dlscaso from
which the Emperor Frederick died was can
cer. The morbid process probably com
menced at the deeper tissues und the curtl-
lagenous structure of the larynx becunio
affected nt a very curly date. A small
growth , which was present when I first ex
amined the late emperor , was removed by
me , and though all the portions removed by
mo were submitted to Prof. Virchow , ho was
uuuble to detect In them nny evi
dence of cancer. Examinations made ,
however , in the beginning of March
by Prol. Wnldotnuyer led that pathol
ogist to believe that cancer was then
present. Whether the disease had boon
originally cancerous or assumed a malignant
character some months after its first appear
ance , It is impossible to state. The fact that
pcricondrlasis and caries of the cartilages
played an active part In the development of
the disease no doubt contributed to make it
impossible to form a decided opinion as to its
nature till quite recently ,
The interest to the general reader ends
with that part of the book which describes
the emperor's death. As the author felt , it
was the story of the fatal illness of Fred-
crick the Noble , the title under which it
will bo issued. But this is not
the end of the book. The last
part is a recapitulation of the
post mortem , of the tactics of the court to
exonerate the court doctors , whoso actions
and influence had been BO fatal , and of the
pamphlet war among the medical men which
broke out with extreme virulence. Of this
last part it has not been felt necessary to
offer u synopsis.

Huiii.iK , Oct. 13. Only a summary of Dr.
MacKcnzle's book is Jtvet accessible to the
public here , but enough is known of Its con
tents to arouse savage Indignation In ofllctal
circles. Putting aside the medical dispute
the charged which Ur. MuclCcntia levels
nt Prince Bismarck , of inciting the German
doctors to entrap him Into a doubtful declara
tion as to the nature of the emperor's dis
ease , are fill to bo u poisonous slander on the
reputation of the chaAoollor. Thu simulta
neous uppcarunco of a letter ot the Empress
Frederick to Dr. MuoKcnziu Indicating his
treatment , is hold to provo concerted action
to blacken Prince Uisninrk's character. Ur.
MacKcnzle's ' attack on Urs. Gcr-
hardt and Berguiann can bo un-
wercd In the courts of law
hero or in England , nnd can bo met also by
the opinions of eminent European specialists
not Gerumn , but Prince Bismarck is power
less to deal with Ur. Mackenzie. Ho will ,
however , use every recourco of his craft to
render the Empress Frederick powerless to
do him further harm ,
The report circulated yesterday regarding
the theft of n cipher code from the emperor's
room indicates that the chancellor's game of
surveillance over the ox-empress , which
ceased by crdor of Kuipeior William after
her surrender of Frederick's papers , will bo
renewed. A watch will bo kept over
her partisans and her movements , In
cluding her proposed visit to Windsor.
Meanwhile Bismarck is having a bad time.
Ho Is suffering from a renewal of his attack
of gout In serious form , partly arising from
worry. It Is stild that his condition will
probably oblige him to retire from public af
fairs within a few months. The progressists
overlook the fact , well known in official cir
cles , that Emperor William's experiences in
Vienna and llomo have riveted him closer
than ever to Bismarck , whose policy has
made him fcol hclulossly dependent upon the
guidance of the chancellor.

The prosecution has been bafilcd in their
search for the original diary , though they
have secured the copy from which the

The official journals chant hymns of peace
over Emperor William's ' progress in Austria
and Italj , still loud undertoens of war con

Frcmdenblatt publishes advices from War
saw announcing the formation of a fortified
camp of the first order near the Gcruiui
frontier , opposite Thcon , and tho' exten
sion of the works of the citadel ol
Novgorgiwik , requiring no less than two
hundred now cannon. Other reports , to
the effect that a supplementary military con
vontlon bus been signed by the emperors
William und Francis Joseph and King Hum

the effective forces of Austria and Italy , put
another gloss on ttio meaning of Emperor
William's journey.
Thcro are strong symptoms of n revival ol
strength among the progressists. At Kouigs
berg the national liberals have rejected the
conservatives' proposals for a coalition , ami
have concluded a compact with the pro
grcssists. The national liberals , jcal

Nr.w YOIIK , Oct. 13. Everything was fav
orable for the demonstration of the Cleve
land nnd Thurman down town business men
this afternoon , ana the meeting before the
sub-treasury in Wall street nnd the subse
quent procession up town were fully up to
the hopes of the members. The meeting was
presided over by Joseph J. O'Donohue ,
When Secretary Fairchlld arose he was wel
comed with a roar of applause. After assert
ing that what was good for Now York was
good for all parts of the union , nnd that what
wus bud for Now York was bad for all , Sec
retary Fairchlld said :
lly force of untoward circumstances the
ofllco which I happen to 1111 is one of the
most Important factors in the country's
busiucss. It is not right that
this should bo the case , and I
believe that another term of democratic ad
ministration , with congress pledged to sup-
iwrt it in wise measures , would result in such
reform us substantially to eliminate the
treasury department from your affairs , thus
ending thu abnormal condition which has
within Its iKJssibility great injury to lepitl-
mr.lo business and great wrongs whenever
the head of that department be unwise or
Discussing the condition of the country's
finances , Mr. Fuirchlld said : In some quar
ters fear has been expressed lest trouble
should bo caused when the government
might suddenly withdraw its deposits. I can
imagine no state of- affairs under which It
would be necessary to do this suddenly. 'Viiss
ninount thus deposited is ubout f"i7UOO,030.
Look at the last statements of assets und
liabilities , and see if the secretary of
the treasury ever need suddenly
call for this money or call for
it in n way to cause embarrassment to
general business. The postolllce department
accounts , the disbursing oOlcers' ' balances ,
the treasurer's transfer checks , the drafts
outstanding , interest duo nnd unpaid , ma
tured debt , accrued interest nnd like liabili
ties amount to about $54,000,000. Tills sum
ulwuj'B remains constant ; hence about that
amount must always bo kept on deposit to
meet daily liabilities , and then after the
money has been set apart for all these liabili
ties , and for every oilier liability of what
ever name or nature , against which the most
forced construction of law could retuire ]
cash to bo provided , there remained a bal-
unco of $ 'JI,444S40 ' , and in addition to that
$24,845S'JO of subsldary silver , or in all , a
balance of lilgWtitMI. ! ) It must bo remem
bered that these reports uro like ordinary
deposits , but that bonds are given to the gov
ernment ns securities , which , when the bank
repays its deposits it can at once sell to the
government at such terms n * will give the
bank from Ii5 to 30 per cent more loanable
money than the uovcrnment deposit gave it.
Can any intelligent man acquainted with
affairs say , after a consideration of all
these facts , that a secretary is not
grossly incompetent , who could not manage
to withdraw the whole or any part of the
money now in deposit without causing the
least general business trouble I Mind you , I
do not defend a deposit of larce sums of gov
ernment money in banks ; it objectionably
mingles private with public business. No
one can .disapprove of this moro than I do.
13nt the only choice is a choice of evils. I
maintain that the administration has chosen
a lesser evil. I claim that on the whole this
perplexing business has been well and pru
dently managed. Men of busiucss , what say
you ) You know the results.
The secretary then explained his course In
buying bonds , nnd said : Up to the 1st of this
October all the 'J per cent bonds outstanding
at the bcgining ot this administration $194-
100,500 have been retired , and in addition
$81,293,240 of 4 and 4 > per cent bonds , or In
all there have been applied to the rotirtMncnt
nnd purchase of bonds , with premiums , $2)0- ! )
W4,51S , and the total interest bearing debt
appearing in the September debt statement
is under $1,000,000,000. This is the first time
in u generation that it bus not taken ten
ilgurcs to express it. And this General Harrison
risen calls "nursing the surplus. "
When he had finished Mr. Carlisle was in
troduced. He was also warmly greeted. He
opened his speech by declaring that ouo of
the most beneficial results of the last presi
dential election was the establishmentof har
monious relations between the people of nil
parts of the country , especially the north nnd
and .south. The north had never so good n
market in the south ns now , nnd the south
never had the use of so much northern capital
ns now. Four more years of Cleveland's '
policy would make it impossible for any
political party to secure power by appealing
to race prejudice. IIo considered this
alone a sunlclent reason for Cleveland's
re-election. Ho charged the republican
leaders with a determined effort to revive
race prejudice in the south , and with an ef
fort to alarm capital and discourage invest
ments in order to make it appear that the
country was not prosperous under the demo
cratic administration. In this they were
partly successful , but the country was pros
perous , i.overtholoss , and in splto of the fact
that it is embarrassed by the republican rev
enue system , which has resulted in heavy
overtaxation. The democratic party would
not consent to reduce the revenue by in
creasing the taxes on necessaries , ns pro
posed by the senate tariff bill. This bill , ho
said , claimed a reduction of about > ( i,000,000.
Of tins nearly ? 2-,000,000 reduction is claimed
on sugar , leaving only $ S,000,000 on all the
other articles. This might reduce the revenue -
nue , but would not reduce the cost of articles
consumed by the people. On the contrary ,
it would increase it. What is needed now is
a Judicious , substantial reduction revenue ,
not by nn increase of taxation but by a ro-
auction of taxation UIHUI the necessaries of
life and upon the materials used in our in
The crowd of listeners contained probably
lr ,000 persons , independent of the business
men's procession. The number of persons
in line is estimated at UO.OOO. The substun

decorated with flags und streamers. A largo
portrait of President Cleveland and another
of Allen G. Thurman were suspended on two

The city was crowded with visitors from

EVANSVILI.E , Ind. , Oct. 13. About 8,000
people assembled at Garvan park this after
noon to hear Hon. James G. Hlaino , Mr.
lilalno spoke upon the tariff question , SO'
verely criticizing the Mills bill und the or
guments made by U. Q. Mills in a speech
delivered hero yesterday. In the course of
his remarks Mr. Hlaino said :
"According to the report of the secretary
of the treasury the duty levied nnd collected
ut all custom houses of the United States
during the fiscal year amounted In the aggre
gate to JSi'J.l'OO.OOO. It Is this sum
which the free traders assail no
bitterly , and It Is in this sum that
they mid the outrages and abuses of the pro-
toctlvo syHtom. Of the aggregate duties of
fJia.COO.OOO . , the Mills bill prpposes to take off
an aggregate of WJ.MJO.OOO which t § 10 per
cent of the total dutiable importations for
the live years. On the duties ou .silks and.
liiioors , amounting to tM.000,000 . , the Mills
bill made no reduction whatever , so that the
whole of the reduction fell on the J > 1S' ' > ,000,000

levied ou sugar , n reduction was made of
f 11,000,000. leaving the people of the United
States still to pay f47.HXlKM ( ) annually on su-
Kar. Deduct that K .OOO.OOO . of sugar duties
from f IS'J,000,000und ' you have loft tlM.OOO.OOO
us the the total amount of all duties levied on
all other artlcloi in the tariff , nnd deduct
$11.000.000 which the Mills took off the sugar
duties , and you have left 13,000.000 reduc
tion on the remaining $131,000,000 duties of
the tariff. Uentleuien , you will please ob-
nerve that the sum of $13100,000 of
duties affords nil the protection wo have on
manufactures except these levied on Bilks , on
cotton , on wool nnd woolens , on Iron nnd
steel nnd nil articles Into which Iron and stool
enter as a component part. What umy bo
termed the entire protective synom of the
United States , over which this controversy
between the two parties Is now raging. Is In
cluded in that $131,000,000 of duties , nnd from
that f 1111,000,00J , of duties Mr. Mills pro
poses to t ko fJ-W.MHW.OOJ , nnd tolls the people
of Indiana that ho Is only reducing the tariff
4 per cent , whereas , us a matter of fact , on
the whole importation on the long list of arti
cles I have named , he makes a reduction ox-
ect'ding i0 ! per cent.
What is it to these industries that nro
stripped naked whether the nvcrngo is ft per
cent or 500 per cent. In cither or any event
they nro thrust out into the cold.
Gentlemen , there Is ouo great diffcronco
between the republican and democratic
partic.H , Whatever the republican party
proiwsos in congress it frankly defends before -
fore the people , but the democratic party ,
from President Cleveland down through all
the onlclal grades , has for eighteen months
waged n bitter warofare on the protective
system , denouncing It as plunder and or
ganized robbery , und are now send
ing out speaucrs , known in fact
to bo the most rancorous frco
traders , with Mills at the head ,
to so qualify and explain away
and Jumble and reverse and turn
und trim the figures that they hope to deceive
the people us to the true Intent of the assault
mode upon the protective system. Mr. Mills
proposes to take the tariff wool and give to
our manufacturers wool from Australia us
chcup us they get it In England. How shall
wo make wpolon goods hero to compete with
the cheap woolen goods of England , unless
wo reduce the wages of the working class far
below that now paid. The inevitable result
must bo one of two things that wo shall lese
the mantel for wools in this country , or must
reduce the wages of n laboring man from 30
to 45 per cent.

yesterday was arrested hero to-day , nnd is
now in Jail. The authorities claim to have n
good case against him. H is evident from
the confidence with which the authorities
work that Wilson , the man captured yester
day , IIUH Hipjoaled. The whereabouts of the
third member of the gang are known , and
the sheriff has left town to secure him. All
three men uro well known in Hapid City.
Murphy wus for n long time general manager
of a bagnio hero and Wilson was then living
with an inmate of the place. The third party
wus also connected witli a similar institution
here at ono time. None of them have ever
borne good reputations in the Ulnck Hills.
Wilson is wanted hero on a charge of horse
stealing , having Jumped bail last summer.
His wounds arc such as make his recovery
impossible. The authorities are confident
they have the right men.

during the day and nt night U drawn down
nnd taken Into the house. It acts us a Hoveru
Irritant upon the disloyal population in thu

of the 10th hist , a party of men called ut
the house of Amiss and induced him
to go out upon the road some ( lib
