iUN , Dec , 22. The committee of the
Kmln Kellef assoclatWn give more credence
to the reported nrrlval of Stanley on the
Aruwhlnl than they did to Osman Digna's
story of Emln Pasha's capture , but they
have decided to continue the preparations for
ncndlng out the Wissmnnn expedition for
Emln's relief until the news Is verified. The
departure of Lieutenant Wissmnnn will nnw
bo retarded until early In February. Al
though the release of Emln Panhn will bo
one object of the expedition , it will also act
In support of anti-slave operations obtaining
on his return from the Interior. It will bo
proposed In the rcichstag that a part of the
money voted by the bill ahull bo used for rais
ing n force of colonial Ircops , oven If It
happens that Emln Pasha Is safe ,
In u discussion of the route to be taken tinil
the number or men composing the expedition ,
n letter from Cardinal Lavlgloplt to the Gor
man minister nt Brussels states that 500
troops marching through Gorman territory
by way of Unyanyombo to UJiJI , on Lake
Tanganyika , could crush the slave trade nnd
disarm nnd forever disable the Arab slave
The East Africa bill U understood to de
mand a sum of money siifllclcnt for n largo
scheme , Involving permanent coast garrisons
and several Inland garrisons. News
papers here , in their criticisms
of the recent events at Sunkim ,
concur In associating the Enclish action
there with the German policy on the Zanzi
bar coast. The North German Gazette says
that the victory at Suaklm wilt have n direct
effect upon the slave movements , and will
probably help to liberate Emln Hoy. That
paper recommends that n force of Egyptians ,
commanded by British olllccrs , prosecute
operations in the Soudan. The National
Caret to holds that Germany's ' energetic
policy on the Zanzibar coast has determined
England's action in the Hod sea , and It hopes
that the Salisbury cabinet will now take
strong measures regarding > the Soudan.
Vienna papers , looking nt the business side
of the subject , expect a reopening of the
Soudan trade , Austria having , prior to
the Mahdi's triumphs , profitable
dealings with the Soudanese , chiefly in cut
lery. Lord Salisbury's declarations that the
British -will not go farther than Sunkim are
given little attention , ofllcial circles having
I reason to expect a largo development of tlio
English policy on the lied sea coast simultaneous
taneous with German action in Zanzibar.
Emperor William has fairly recruited his
health and has resumed his Journeys. To-day
ho went to Stettin to inspect the Frederick-
William grenadier regiment. The people
of Stettin gave him a hearty reception.
He went direct from the railway sta
tion to Koenigsplatz , where ho pre
sented four now ribbons to the colors
of the regiment. Afterwards , in a short
speech , ho said he trusted that the ofllcors
nnd men would maintain the high character
of their order for bravery. Ho next visited
tlio Vulcan ship building works at Bredow.
This evening ho dined with the ofllcers of the
garrison at their club. His work has dis
played the same expenditure of nervous en
ergy that it did before tiis illness , and it has
been In the same direction toward mili
The emperor has been arranging for some
grand military mauouvrcs in Siberia in
ISS'.l. ' Ho has hold conferences with the
commission on the defense of Cuxhaven and
the North sea canal. Ho spent several hours
on Thursday at the artillery range outside of
Jicrlin , whore ho reviewed two battalions of
guards in going through a series of maneu-
vres under the new drill regulations.
A perplexed interest has been created by
the emperor's orders , summoning at the
name time Baron Rcssen , military attache at
Bt. Petersburg , and Baron Von Huency
military attache at Paris. Both' arrived on
Thursday and nad an Interview with the em
peror wltlrout delay. The Berliuora would
like to see some of this energy used in en
couraging trade. There is a general com
plaint of dullness. Christmas buying is
limited , nnd the festal spirit Is under gloom.
Duchess Adelaide , of Schleswig-Holstein ,
mother of the empress , is seriously 111 at the
castle of Lomunbourg. Her Illness is the re
sult of a fall in her bedroom , and adds to the
Kraveness of the court circle.
The scini-oflloial press continues Its at
tacks on the character ot Sir R. D , Moiror ,
British ambassador at St. Petersburg , The
aoparont object is to prevent the acceptance
of Molrer nt Vienna under the pending
changes of English ambassadors , Moiror
asks , through the minister here , for nn ofll-
cial contradiction of the Cologne Gazette's
assertion thut 10 hold communications with
Marshal Bazalno duriug the war of 1870 , and
was seeking to betray the Gorman army.
Moiror though heartily disliked by
Bismarck , will got the contradiction ho de
sires. Bismarck knows him as holding
views on German politics similar to those
of Emperor Frederick. He was a clo o
friend of Baron Von Beust during hU long
period of diplomatic service at
various Gorman courts. The English
government proposed him as
ambassador at this place four years ago , but
Bismarck promptly rejected him , The chan
cellor probably has cause to suspect him of
intriguing against German Interests slnco
the time of bis rejection , but the charge of
acting as a upv for Marshal .Uazatno Is In
credible. During the war Moiror , then at
tached to the court at Darmstadt , wont to
Strassburg In order to give help to wounded
Germans , and rcceivcdjthe confidence and
respect of the German ofllclals , but ho hns
now acquired a cordial dislike Of the oniclul

The address of the Bavarian bishops to the
pope does not allude to the position of the
Hainan Cathollo church In Bavaria. Refer
ring to the subject of temporal power , the
bishops say ; "Wo suffer with you , and with
you claim the ro-cstublishmont of your rights
of liberty and temporal power. Wo

the liberty of the supreme chlof of the

cludes with n prayer that God will permit
Ills holiness to romalu Inviolable in the me
tropolis of the Cathollo Christians.

Loirno : * , Doc. S3. [ Special Cablegram to
TIIR HUB. ] Tlio speech made in the house of
lords last night by the Earl of Dunravon ,
which called forth a reply from Lord Sails-
bury , regarding the Snokvlllo'Wost Incident ,
was road to-day with a great deal of Interest.
Ho said : "Surely it would have been moro
dignified on our part , nnd moro worthy of
our position , to hnve taken no notice of n
matter which , ns "tho prime minister has re
marked , 'Is no matter .affecting the two na
tions. ' In the case of some foreign powers
different considerations would again affect
us , but our relations with the United States
are peculiar.Vo use the % vord for
eign toward them because thcro Is no
other suitable expression , but I am loath
to use thn term toward the great republic.
The United States Is , diplomatically speaking -
ing , n foreign power , but she can never bo a
foreign land to us. Her citizens are mainly
men of the same race and lineage as our
selves , having the same nainos , speaking the
same tongue , worshipping under the same
term of religion , and living under the sumo
common law. Tliolr Institutions , though dif
fering , nro very similar in their Integral
parts to our own , nnd are founded on the
same love of liberty and law and capacity
for self government. It is Impossible to look
upon such n people as foreigners , though ono
Is obliged to apeak of their country as a
foreign power. Of all civilized nations wo
alone can understand the United States , nnd
she nlono can understand us. Any misun
derstanding arising botwoonus would bo held
to bo most deplorable by the vast majority of
all the thinking men on both sides of the At
lantic. Any longer delay In filling Lord
Snckville's place Is liable to bo misunder
stood by the American people. I hold It to
bo our flrst duty to avoid the possibility of
anything that may lend to a rupture of the
sincere friendship between this mother coun
try and the colonies ; nnd after that I con
sider it our second duty to nvqUl any such
possibility between the United" States and
ourselves. Before long another minister
will bo accredited to the court of St. .Tunics.
If we hcsitnto and delay to accredit the min
ister at Washington , the United States may
retaliate by delaying to accredit a minister to
us. Two great international questions are
awaiting solution , the fishery , and extradi
tion treaties , nnd these wo cannot hope to
settle , except under conditions of real friend
ship between the two countries.

with nn air of refinement , was to-day ar
ralgncd for intoxication in the Brooklyn po
lice court before Justice Masscy , who at
once recognized the prisoner as William A.
McConnell , formerly manager of the Brook
lyn theater under Haverly's regime. Mr.
McConnell is well known throughout the
country as n manager , and a few years ago
ho and his brother , Charles II. , were pro
prietors of the National Printing and En
graving company , of Chicago. Since the
failure of Havcrly the McConnell family
have lost money very rapidly , and it seems
that all their theatrical ventures terminated
William A. McConnell is an actor
as well as a manager , and was
leading man for both McCullough and Bar
rett for quito a long time. Last spring ho
started from Chicago to star in a play which
was written for him by n Chicago Journalist.
Tlio play was first produced in ono of the
smaller towns of Illinois , ana was thcro con
sidered a success. McConnell opened with
it shortly afterward in Chicago , and there It
Droved a failure , and he gave it up and dis
banded the company. Ho then came to Now
York and was engaged as manager for Es-
tello Clayton , who produced "Tho Quick or
the Doad. " This play proved a flat failure ,
nnd the company was soon broken up.
McConnell became disheartened at his bad
luck , nnd began drinking heavily. About
; hree weeks ago ho was arrested in New
York for intoxication and % vas sent
to Blackwell's Island for fifteen days , from
which institution ho was released Sunday
last. His friends in Brooklyn learned of his
sad plight und made up a largo bundle of
clothing , which was sent over to him. As
soon as ho got out he resumed his drinking ,
which resulted In his urrcst last night. He
las plenty of friends in Brooklyn , and when
ho is released from the Inebriate's homo , to
which ho was to-day committed , some meas
ure will undoubtedly bo taken to place him
on his feet again.

INDIANAPOLIS , Dec. 22. This was a pretty

callers of prominence thcro were Judge T ,
13. Catron and Colonel W. L. Ryncrson , of
Now Mexico , and Samuel W. Allorton , the
well known Chicago capitalist. Their visit
was largely social , but also political , slnco

for the territories. It is believed that they
urged upon the president-elect n strict ob
servance of that planic In the republican plat-
'orm which favors the appointment of resi

dered released a pnckngo of alcohol which
was. seized In the United States express
ofllco In , this city some time ago , en route
from Uock Island , 111. , to Uunnolls , la. The
package was not labelled or marked so ns to
show Its contents , and the stnte law requires
all shipments of liquor within the state to bo
so marked. The constables seized the al
cohol and claimed that.altcr it once crossei
the line nnd came inside the state , It fcl
under the provisions of the statute for the
rest of the Journey , and was therefore liable
to seizure for being unmarked , The courl
holds that this was nn intcr-stoto shipment ,
belonging to inter-state commerce , am
therefore not subject to state laws until the
transit had ended , and the liquor became a
part of the mass of Iowa property. Ho
therefore orders that the gallon Jug bo sent
