BERLIN , August 31 , The coining session
of the rolchstag Is not expected to bo stormy
or sensational. Among the most Important
measures to bo introduced is a bill which the
government Is preparing for credits to aug
ment and reorganize the army , In view of the
continual Increase of the French nnd Rus-
Bian armaments. The members of the roich-
Btag and tbo public are being prepared for
this line of significant articles In
all the official organs. Those papers
tire demanding nn increase of the German
forces , , which Is calculated on the effective
force that the now French military law will
enable Franco to put into the Hold.
Several petitions have been sent to the
government from Alsace-Lorraine asking
that the authorities bo instructed to miti
gate the rigors of the passport regulations.
The petitions thus far have met with no response
sponse- from the government.
The Strausbourg Landos Zoitung even re
ports that the permission hitherto accorded
in parishes adjoining the frontier to dispense
with the exhibition of passports where there
is frequent crossings for business purposes ,
is cow withdrawn. No reason for the with
drawal Is assigned.
Thnro is no cessation in the press polemics
on African affairs. The Vossischo Zoitung ,
commenting upon tbo appearance of
vho English blue book says that
the object seems to DO to demonstrate anew ,
in spite of German indignation meetings and
rovllmgs against England in regard to the
Emln relief expedition , the fact that the
Anglo-German understanding ha ) not under
gone the slightest interruption. The
Vossische Zoituug believes that this entente
cordlalo precluded the possibility of Germany
landing the smallest countenance to any
efforts llko that of Dr. Peter's to Interfere
with tbo English pluus In central
Africa. The Boorson Zeltung declares
that during the negotiations for a
Joint blockade Germany gave formal
assurance that the Emln province , including
Waddl , though officially abandoned by
Egypt , sDould still bo regarded , nt least pro
visionally , as belonging to-Egypt.
The assertion that a formal agreement was
made is perhaps exaggerated , both the North
Gorman Gazette's attack the
on Cologne Ga
rotte and l.ho national liberal party's organs
favoring Dr. Peters , Indicate Prince Bis
marck's firm intention to give no offense to
England in colonial matters. The Hanover
Courier , Herr Bcnnfgsen's organ , deplores
the misunderstandings created by tbo
North German Gazette , and regrets that
the friends of Prince Bismarck and
the emperor , in high position , should bo at
tacked because they failed to foresee a year
ago the rapproacnmont with England.
The Frankfort Gazette similarly expresses
surprise , considering the license Prince Bis
marck formerly allowed , that it should now
bo so dangerous to endeavor to ascertain In
a perfectly passionless manner what nro
Germany's rights as compared with English
private transgressions. The Gazette asks In
n fono of sarcasm , "What is the enormous
price England must bo paying for u total
suppression of oven the most modest expres
sion of public opinion regarding German
colonial subjects. "
The Vossischo Zeltung supports the atti-
,1udo ; of the North German Gazette.
Telegrams from Copenhagen represent tbo
liinjj of Denmark as surprised that his son-
in-law should have so long delayed return
ing Emperor William's visit and as most
anxious that this act of courtesy should no
longer be uofnrred ; still after so many dis
appointments the statement that the czar has
decided to coma next * weak , moots with a
deal of skepticism oven In offi
cial circles. The bitter articles
of the Berlin Post and other papers
may bo attributed to the annoyance caused
by these delays. Tlio Port declares the only
way to turn the attention of Russia from war
is for the European powers to give her free
hand fa Asia or the Balkans.
The marriage festivities ut Copenhagen
will bring a largo gathering. It is estimated
that forty members of the Imperial and royal
families will bo present , the assembling of
whom gives 'rise to numerous betrothal
The Bochum congress was well attended.
There was some disappointment over tUo
lack of original and practical ideas for the
amelioration of tbo condition of worklnguicii.

CHICAGO , August 81. [ Special Telegram
to Tin : BnnVl It is said this evening by a
Chicago railroad man that the explanation
lias dually been given why Klddor , Peabody
& Co. preferred Mr. Manvcl to Mr. Strong
as president of the Atcliison. It is known
that Baring Brothers , of. London , wcro
largely instrumental in floating Atehi-
son bonds , and they had no
dilllculty In placing them. The Atohison has
novcr .vet defaulted on the Interest of its
bonds , but it has not paid the interest with
its earnings. Baring Bros , huvo stood in the
broach nnd made good the deficiency , no
matter how largo the amount. This was a
heavy drag on the London firm of bankers.
Having utmost or quite oxhaustei the
amount originally obtained for floatIng -
Ing the lends , in this exigency'
they begun looking about for a Moses who
would lend the Atchison out of the wilder
ness. A coolness had already sprung up be-
t\veen Kioder. Pcabody & Co. and President
Strom ; , and as this banking llrni is prac
tically the American representation of Bar
ing Brothers , the report on the fitness of
President Stronir was naturally lukewarm
or hostile. Baring Brothers also floated a
large block of Manitoba bonds , and
in . doing it were much im
pressed with the illness of General
Manager Manvel. This Impression Presi
dent Hull \v .s not slow to foster , as ho hon
estly believed Mr. Manvol was ono of the
most capable executive officers In the rail
road business. After many consultations
with Kiddcr , Peabody & Co. it was decided
to send representatives to Chicago and got
an unprejudiced opinion of Mr. Manvcl's ' fit
ness. Tlio investigation was complete and
created gossip at the time , none of which
however , credited Mr. Manvol with a chance
for buch u position as president of the Atchi
son. President Strong resigned while this
Investigation was going on , probably being
the only man who guessed its intent , but his
resignation was not accepted. As soon as
the report was made , however , Baring
Brothers concluded to make the change , and
President Strong's resignation was accepted.

LONDON , August 31. The long smoul
dering discontents of the laborers on
the London docks received n strong nthnulus
by the revelations before the lords' committee
on "sweating" last year. The leaders of the
labor movement , seizing the opportunity ,
prosecuted a vigorous campaign in the East
End nnd funned the embers of discontent
until the dockmon , rouspd from the lethargy
Induced by their sordid surroundlucs , sub
mitted to the guidance of Burns and other
active spirits , their concerted action leading
to the present crisis.
The continuance of the strike for seventeen
days , and the strikers' determined attitude
now , show that the lenders calculated the
probable course of the movement before
notice of the strike was formally given.
Interviews to-day with the functionaries
whoso duties bring thorn into daily contact
with dock men nnd these of the allied em
ployments , show that for years past the con
dition of the dock men's families has been
as bad ns any of the worst cases before the
"sweating" committee. The local radical
clubs1 nnd other organizations are fully olive
to the importance of striking while the iron
is hot. They are creatly assisted by the lec
turers and by the house propa
ganda intended to foment discontent nnd
forward , what in view of to-nighl's situa
tion nnd the strike corabilttco's latest mani
festo , promises to develop Into an organized
crusade ngnlnst capitalism generally.
The strikers adhere to tholr full demands ,
though the countenances of many who enter
nnd depart from the relief committee's room
plainly reveal sharp privation.
Public feeling , both in the East End nnd
in the city's commercial circles , strongly
favor the strikers. Local sympathy Is act
ively exerted to supplement thn various pub
lic subscriptions to afford practical relief.
To-day tbo employes of Yarrow & Co.who
are under a heavy contract to supply the
government with torpedo appliances , struck ,
while 5,000 iron workers at the Isle of Dogs
have gone out for an advunco cf 0 pence.
The dock laborers in the strike number
110,000. As an immediate sequence of their
cessation 5JO.OOO stevedores , 0,000 TiKhtormon ,
2,000 clerks and nearly fifty thousand grain
weighers and laborers are idle.
A mass meeting of dockmon will bo held
In Hyde Park to-'rnorrpw.
The directors of the dock companies have
absolutely declined to mnko uny'conccssloa
beyond < vhat has alreadybeeti offered , and
matters remain in statu quo. The strike
committee mot late to-night at the Wade
Arms and decided to withdraw tholr appeal
for a general strike and to substitute an ap
peal to the trades unions ut homo and abroad
for financial help to continue the struggle.
A Fair Prospect That It Will Soon
Uc Hottlod.
CHICAGO , August 81. [ Special Telegram
to TUB BEK.I There is ut least a fair pros
pect of the great Strcator strike being sot-
tied. Governor Flfor , who has been deeply
interested in the struggle between the miners
nnd their employers , and who has ocen much
Impressed with the accounts of the suffer
ings of the unfortunate strikers in the
Spring Vulloy district , has resolved to take
a hand in the matter and , If possible , to
bring the unfortunate dispute to a peaceful
and satisfactory termination. This
morning a long conforcnco was
hold bstwecii Governor Fifer
and a committee representing tbo strikers.
A preliminary meeting had been hold last
night at which Senator C. B. Farwell was
present and expressed his readiness to
do every thing in his puwer to bring about a
settlement. Ho was not present at the con
ference this morning , but his views were
represented by Ilallroad Commissioner
Wheeler who also took part m the delibera
tions. The meeting was hold in Governor
Fifor's room und was not open to the press.
Tbo governor opened the proceedings by
stctlng tlmt ho had thoroughly Investigated
the statements as to the sufferings of the
striker ? in the coal districts and ho
had made up his mind to take
some uctlvo steps to bring the
wretched state of affairs that existed there
to aa end. Ho also said that ho was of the
opinion tlmt the mon were not sufficiently
paid for their labor , and ho believed if they
were not immoderate , in their demands a
satisfactory settlement to all parties might
bo effected ,
Mr. , Cowdroy nnd Mr. Dotivltor both
pointed out that the men's demands at
present were exceedingly reasonable. They
said that the minors only naked to bo paid nt
n rate that made It pdsslblo for tly.n , by
great diligence und hard work , to earn $3
a day.
Governor Fifor thought an able bodied
man ought to bo able to earn at least $ J a
day In this country and ho didn't consider
such a demand unreasonable. Ho thought
that if the minors nnd operators could bo got
together again something might bo done to
settle matters.
After a long discussion Mr. Wheeler rose
and said that ho desired to repeat now what
ho said when the conference broke up two
weeks ago , that ho hud a suggestion to make
which ho believed would bring about u satis
factory settlement. Ail ho wanted wus the
proper opportunity to pffer that suggestion.
Some moro talk followed this remark and
finally it was decided that the miners cull a
general mooting for 10 o'clock. Monday morn
ing at Jbllot , which the owners will bo in
vited to attend. Governor Flfor promised to
send Mr. Wheeler down as bis representa
tive to the mooting , wbore Mr , Wheeler , in
the governor's numo , will tuako his propo
sition , Tbo governor is so im
pressed with the reasonableness of
Mr. Wheeler's proposition that bo told the
delegation that ho had ovary reason to hope
that the atrllro will bo settled Monday. The
governor has nlso decided to issue a procla
mation asking for contributions to help out
the starving pcoptq In Spring Valley.
Governor Fifor's only doubt about a pen-
oral settlement bolng effected is with regard
to W. L. Scott's employes. In case the em
ployes of the other operators should coma to
terms and Scott's mon bo' forced to remain
out , a proclamation for their special benefit
will bo Issued. It Is believed possible that
Mr. Wheeler may bo In h position to offer , on
behalf of the railroads , such n reduction in
the rates as will enable the operators to
acccdo to the men's ' demands.
Ho Seta Flro to n Itnrn nnd .lumps
Into the Flames.
NnwAnK , N. J. August 81. The town of
Paradise , N. J. , near the Blue mountains ,
was the scene of n dreadful tragedy a day or
two since. Phillip Hoinicklc , n well to do
German farmer , furnished the sensation ,
but did not have the satisfaction of enjoying
the sight of his neighbors' surprise.
Hcimchlo has for some time past made
threat * that ho woufd burn the town , but
little heed was paid to htm. The other day
ho went to his barn , in which was stored nil
his year's harvest , nnd kindled a flro at each
of the four corners. The barn was soon
blazing , the flames and' smoke showing for
miles around. Homicide stood watching the
destruction of his property with perfect in
Some of the farmers living near him saw
the flro and cama to help him save bis prop
erty , but with a gesture ho refused their aid ,
and they could do nothing. The heat was
BO intense that they could not approach the
burning barn.
After standing by for a whllo they were
horrified to see Hoinlokle deliberately throw
himself into the flames. No ono was near
him at the time and nothing could bo denote
to prevent the awful deed.
When the flro baa exhausted itself nnd the
embers had cooled so that u search among
the ruins was posslolo , his charred nnd half
consumed body was found.
Grand Army Circles Considerably
Worked Up.
CIIIOAQO. August 3i. [ Special Telegram
to TUB Bnc.l Graud Array circles have
been considerably worked up to-day by the
reports in the inoraing papers relating to an
nllogcd insult to General' Sherman by mem
bers of the Phil Sheridan , post , of Chicuco.
Tiio affair took place at Milwaukee yester
day forenoon on the train which wasabout ,
to leave for Chicago ,
The story coos that General Sherman and
his brother woio shown > to n car which was
afterward entered and claimed by a Chicago
party , members of Phit Sheridan post.
Even tbo presence' df General Sher
man , it is said , did not sllcnco
the protests of the party * against the occu
pants of the car , nnd finally the illustrious
chieftain and his brothoi ; went out and left
the Chlcagoans In possession.
A reporter called on Wm. C. Curtis , com
mander of Phil SherMatu post , this morning
to get his version of tiio. ory.
"It's nn awkward uffahsala , ho , "and It
is not going to bo nn * < oaty matter for us to
make it appear just righfin the eyes of the
people , although wo dlrf nothing Improper
and arc really not blameworthy. The fact is
tlmt the general was a little tired
and his brother a lUtlo too quick
tempered , and they toolf oftenso whore none
was meant. The car which the general
boarded was ono which.elght or nine of us
had chartered , and as we had our wives
With us wo could'do nothing less than insist
pn claiming the provisions wo had made
for their comfort. When the car was
backed into the station and attached to the
train a rush was made for it and when wo
reached it the seats were already filled. Wo
protested to the porter , who immediately
began to clear the car , explaining the situ
ation to tno usurpers. It was not noticed at
first that General Sherman was ono of the
Intruders , but as soon us be was observed
the porter told him that ho was in
the wrong car , that his seat was in the coach
ahead. The general didn't seem to bo much
put out , but his brother flow all to pieces In
a minute nnd denounced us for disturbing
the old commander. Vice Commander
Brown , a member of the party , offered Gen
eral Sherman a scat , but the offer was re
fused. Ills baggage was picked up and car
ried into the car that should have been taucn
nt first , the general following it , accompanied
by'Major Sherman , who was still burning
with indignation. Now , wo intended no dis
respect to the general. Wo did not treat him
rudely and ho had no reason for getting
wrathy except that ho was tired and
didn't llko to moyp. If our party
had consisted of men alone , why , it would
have been different. But , you see , wo had
eight ladies , and wo were obliged to consult
their comfort. Besides , the general might
have staid in the cur , ar yliow , had he chosen
to accept the scat Mr. 13 rown tendered him ,
and perhaps ho would h wo done so if his
brother hadn't been so not. I regret the af
fair very much , and I realize how difilcult it
Is going to bo to set ourtelVQ.i right. However -
ever , wo can state the facts Just as they nro
and let the people form ! their own conclu
sions. If they won't bbllovo us , then lot
them go to the conductor and the porter of
the train. Both will confirm what I have
stated and what all the members of the party
will lully corroborate.-- *

Holzlmy , the Gogcbio stage robber , was captured -
turod at Republic , in this county , this morn
ing. The method by winch his.capturo Wai
effected was as clover and neat as tno ban
dit's own exploits have been daring nud as
tounding. Tlicro is no doubt whatever that
Holzhay is the sumo man who startled the
entire northwest about two months ago by
going single handed through u train on the
Milwaukee & Northern road at Kilts Juno ,
tionVls. . , and levying tribute on a score or
more of passengers ; that n few weeks later
rode into a store In a small coun
try sottlomunt , and at the niuzzlo
of a revolver compelled the proprietor to con
tribute the contents of his safe , and still
later held up a train on tno "Wisconsin Cen
tral railway. "I
Holzhay was brought to this city at 2 p. m.
to-day mid incarcerated in the county Jail.
To an Associated press reporter ho said ho
had made for the thickets immediately after
the stagu robbery. He unshed rapidly oast-
wnrd and struck the Duluth , South Shore &
Atlantic railway about fifty miles cast of
Nestorlu. Tlicro hu bo.mlod a train und
rode to Champion , the northern terminus -
minus of the Milwaukee & Northern.
Ropubiio lies ten miles south of
Champion , and to that point Halzhay made
his way on foot. Ho applied at the Republic
house for lodging and wus assigned to a room.
It was about 0 o'clock yesterday afternoon
when ho nrrived there. Ho ate supper and
an lionr later wus shown to his room. The
landlord observed a striking harmony with
the description of the Gogobio stngo robber ,
and informed the qity marshal , who also had
been notillnd by B. 10. Wolsor , a Justice of
the pouco. Woiscr had met the man ,
on the stroot. The marshal notified
Oeuuty Sheriff John Glade , and to
gether they went to the hotel. Findlntr
the landlord already suspicious , their own . ' I'-l
Euspicions wore confirmed , but they decided
not to disturb the stranger in his room. They
wore certain ho was well armed , and would
shoot if disturbed. It wus therefore con
sidered host to wait until morning , und the
plan of capture was quickly determined
upon. Holzhayo arose at G o'cloclr , ata a
light breakfast and paid his bill. Ho had a
checkered quilt rolled up and bound with a
small rope. In this Improvised grip ho car 4
ried a change of clothing. Slinging the 4I
bundle over his shoulder ho started off ,
intending to make for the Wisconsin
lumber camps. Officers Glnda and Woiser
were awaiting his appearance on the street.
They wcro dressed In citizens' clothing to
avoid arousing suspicion. As Hulzbay approached
preached them they walked toward him , ap i.
parently in narncst conversation and paying !
no attention to the stranger at all. VVhen
they came to him they parted to allow Halz
hay to pass between thorn. No sooner were
they abreast than the ofllcern seized their
man , one at each arm und shoulder and
throw him to the pavement. Halzhay strug
gled and tried to roach his hip
pocket , nearly succeeding In doing BO.
At that moment Policeman Wbalon
came up and with his stick gave the pros
trate man a rap on the head which quieted
him , and ho made no further resistance.
Handcuffs wore then applied and the terror
of northern Wisconsin and Michigan was
found on Holzhny's ' person bore the name of
A. Flolschbein in largo letters on the inside
cover. Flolschbein was the man who was.
killed during the attack : upon the stage.
