Hr.iii.i.v , Sept. 14. The hourly reception
given to Emperor Williatri at Hanover has
boon a gratifying surprise , as showing the
extent of the nuti-Prusslan party nnd the
popular growth of the Gortnau national
movoiliont. Tlio progress of the party through
the densely crowded streets was very slow ,
nnd the enthusiasm was overwhelming. The
emperor was exceedingly pleased with his
Equal enthusiasm was displayed when the
emperor droyo from the Schloss to welcome
thoczurowUcli , The spontaneous character
of the demonstration could not bo doubted.
It was the emperor's first visit to the capital
of the conquered kingdom. Ho and his entourage
tourage- expected a lukawnrm reception. His
pleasure over the welcome found expression
in the words that ho addressed to Hurr Hen-
nlgor. oborprcsidcn of the province. He
found himself among his own people in Han
over , he said.
His meeting with the czarowiteh was in
vested with unwonted formality , the honors
being the same as would have been accorded
the czar. Around the ciuneror wore Prlnco
Albrcclit , the grunddukes of IIuss-i and Old-
burg , Prince Charles of Sweden , nnd several
German princelings nnd court ofllcials. The
czarowitch coulially responded to the em
peror's greeting. They drove through ranks
of the veterans and members of tbo city
guilds to the Schloss.
Yesterday's review was a brilliant spectacle -
taclo , The czarowitch rode on the emperor's
right. Count You Aldersoo led the Huno-
vcran Uhluns , and Prluco Gcorgo the Six
teenth Uhluns. Prince Albrccht was at the
head of the Hrunswickorg. The emperor
redo along the line of 7,000 men nnd ex
pressed complete satisfaction with the bear
ing of the troops.
Ucturnlng to the Schloss the imperial party
visited the guild of brewers. , The emperor
drank a glass of beer and the empress was
presented with a bouquet.
The fact tbut the czarowitch was received
in u style usually reserved for crowned
heads , is exciting unusual attention. The
programme of .his reception at Kiel and
Hanover was dictated by Prmco Bismarck ,
who was actuated by his knowledge that the
czarowitch is disposed to renew the amlca-
"blo relations with Germany. His influence
niny assist the chancellor's final efforts to
modify the czar's hostilities. According to
the present arrangements , during his visit
to Potsdam , the Claris determined to avoid
all roforoDco to the political situation. Nei
ther M. Do Giors or any other minister of
his political cabinet will accompany him.
His sulto will be composed solely of mili
tary officers. Prince Hlsniarck is credited
with aiming to obtain an interview similar

The result is the whlto people are arming

CHICAGO , Sept. 14. Bctwoon eight and ten
thousand people rushed pell moll out of the

many Jumping through the windows in their
hurry to escape. A flro had started in one

WJISIHNUTOX , D. C. , Sept. 14. I
There U but n shadow of a doubt that
Major Warner , sof Kansas City , will accept
ho cominisslonorshlp of pensions. At the
confcronco between the president nnd War
ier at the whlto house lost night the latter
nformcd the former that lie would yield to
request of tile chief magistrate , his
cabinet officers nnd tbo great volume of sol
diers throughout the country , nnd accept
.ho . coinmlssloncrshtn If it were not for his
aw business. Major Warner says ho has
but ton or twelve years of life in which to
muko whatever ho is to have of worldly
* oods for his old ago and nls family ; that ho
ias a large and lucrative law practice whlcb
10 does not want to give up for nn ofllco with
i salary no larger than his expenses of liv-
ng. If , however , ho can arrange with his
raslncss partner , who Is rfow hero , so that
10 can enjoy some of the profits of the law
iructico uow possessed by the firm , nnd
at the end of his official term return to the
irautico upon the same terms ho now has ho
s willing to accept the coinmisslonorshlp.
Those wno have talked to Major Wurnor
and ills professional partner since the intor-
rlow with the president this morning , before

remain ten days or two weeks , believe that
10 Will arrange his business satisfactorily

rLETOuru's CASE win , BE KCVEHSED.
There nro reasons for believing that the
report from Chicagoujbout the reversal
of the Undine in the Fletcher court martial
is correct. It is , true , as stated
yesterday by General Schoflold , that the
> apers have not yet reached the secretary of
war , but it is true also that the decision of
the court is not satisfactory 10 the officers
lore , and it is believed that General Scho
leld will recommend Its reversal. Till the
case comes from the president nothing
official or really reliable clm'bo' learned.
General Schoflefd has reviewed the finding
and has written his recommendation. Tlio
fact that the papers require presidential
action is conclusive evidence that the court
found him guilty and sontancod him to dis
missal from the service. There Is strong in
fluence at work , however , to save him his
commission , and the general impression
among war department ofllcials is that the
gontcnco will bo amended very materially ! "
TUB OUIO CAMPAIGN. I T
There is Just enough of truth in the r < * -
ports that nn undercurrent of fooling exists
among some of the republican leaders in
Ohio Coward Governor Foraker to make t bo.
campaign waging there of special interest in
Washington. General Grosvenor , who Is
ono of the oldest members of congress from
that state , nnd who was removed by Gov
ernor Foraker from one of the state boards a
year or more ago on account of a criticism ho
made of the governor , has boon hero n
couple of days. Ho declares that his open
ing speech , in which ho paid the democratic
candidate for governor n high personal com
pliment , was wise politics.
"I think that Foraker will win but not by
abusing bis opponent , but rather on account
of the merit of the campaign , " said ho to
Ex-Speaker Ketfor , of Ohio , who was talkIng -
Ing to General Grosvenor at the tune the
latter spoke said : "Forakor will bo olectea.
I think Grosvenor Is right in taking the posi
tion that Campbell , the democratic candi
date , Is a strong adversary , and that wo
should not heap abuse upon him. Wo can
win without it. There are republicans her *
who say talk of this character is bora of a
secret desire to BOO Forakor beaten , and
that belief is what gives zest to
tbo campaign in Ohio from this
distance. Generals Grosvenor nnd Kelfor
are both working like Trojans for Forakor ,
but thov are working upon tliolr own plans ,
which may not bo those of the governor ,
Major McKinley , who is a loading candi
date for the spoakorshlp of the next house
of representatives , has been In the east some
days , but has gone to his homo in Ohio to
take the stumu for ForaKer. There is not
the same ground for suspecting his loyalty
to Foraker that there Is ( or suspecting Sher
man , Grosvenor and Kelfor. McKinley
said before starting west : "I have not
the least doubt that' Fomkor will bo reelected -
elected and that the legislature will be safely
republican. The retirement of Commis
sioner Tanner will not'lnjurj the republican
ticket In Ohio , although'tbo democrats will
work It for all it U worth. No , I must not
talk of my chances for the speakorshlp. Cer
tainly I hope and expect to bo elected. Hut
there are other gcntle'mon who aspire to the
position and their viowa are as worthy in
every respect as mine. "

dressed beef question. "I will say , " said
ho , to-day , "that the committee is satisfied
with Its work. At Kansas City the big
lacicors responded to the commlttoo's sum
mons and testified freely , drawing back only
when matters of a purely private nature
were approached. Mr. Armour , for instance -
stance , when questioned as to the profits of

mittoo for prlvato inspection , but when Sen

facts must bo published , Mr. Armour said
he would put his balance sheet In his pocket ,
nnd ho did. I think he acted properly , too.
No man would want his'private business

Lho committee secured valuable testimony at
Kansas City. Our inquiries received ready
responses und the facts developed were Inter

"Cannot you state the conclusion which
you reached us a result of the inquiry ! "
' Well , in a word , overpro luetion is tbo
cause of the depression which wo were in

questions which I put myself , and lam satis-
lied that the whole thing is accounted for by
this simple theory. "
"Hut that doesn't account for the increased
cost of beef to consumers , does It ) "
' No , but that point was also explained very
satisfactorily by a witness , who showed Unit
It was duo to the present method of cutting
up the carcass of a bullock. The choice cuts
liavo Doon very much reduced , and thus a
much larger proportion of the beef Is sold nt
a cheap rate , some at 3 cents a pound. What
Is lost in the weight of the choice cuts is
made up in the price which the consumer
pavs. The witness said that everybody
wanted tbo choice cuts and would take no
other , the poor being as fastidious as the

The Recent Outrage Very Warmly
INDIANAPOLIS , Sect. 14. The negro Hap-
tits resumed theirtliscussion of the outrages
agafn to-day. RBTT. Mr. Jordan , of Missis
sippi , made u speech deprecating the remarks
advocating violence in return for southern
wrongs , us it places a mass of helpless col
ored people at the mercies of the criminal
classes of the south. Others of the Missis
sippi delegation talked In the same vein , and
resolutions were finally introduced and
adopted to the effect that the colored people
desire to cultivate friendly relations with
those among whom they live. Prestdont LoVe
made a speech retelling the story of the as
sault upon himself , und suid thn passage of
the resolution would make It appear that
there had been no outrages and that ho hud
made false statements. This caused much
excitement and the vote was reconsidered
and the resolution tabled. The members of
the Mississippi delegation insisted , however ,
upon their names going n record as being
opposed to violence , and this was allowed.

NORTH ADAMS , Mass. , Sept. 11. [ Special

has been In progress hero by the tasters and
Knights of Labor band ! over a reduction of
wages , which , tbo mill agents declare , wn&
rendered necessary by dull trade and west
ern competition. Tlio factories have
now been idle for over , a fort
night , resulting In a great loss to
the companies. President. C. T , Sampson ,
of the Sampson Manufacturing company , a
few days since presided at a meeting of the
manufacturers , and spoke of his experience
with Chinpso , their great faculty of Imita
tion , steady habits nnd cheapness , and urged
that the mills bo filled with thorn , claiming
that in a week they would bo competent
workmen. The meeting thought favorably
of bis statement and entered Into u
contract with the Six Companies In
San Francisco relative to procuring
the 10,0 < X ) necessary hands. What decision
has been reached is unknown , but the news ,
becoming known , has made the strikers wild ,
and they are threatening Incendiarism und
everything else , it the Chinese are imported.

to say what they will do In mooting the out
rates by the Uurllngton & Northern , Col-
cctlvoly they have put oft the final sottlo-
incnt of the matter until Monday.
At the beginning of the mornlnl ; session'
.ho Chicago , St. Paul & Kansas City asked
Tor delay until the afternoon so that General
Manager Egau , of that rend , could bo hoard

10 word from Kgan.
During the afternoon session tha * North

tral and Iowa Central gave notice thut they
would meet the 40-cont local basis mndo by
; ho Hurllngton & Northern. The Wisconsin
Central was not ropresoatod at the meeting ,
jutwlll undoubtedly meet the rate. The
tforthwostcrn reduction will go Into effect
.ho same day as that of thu Uurllngton &
Northern September 18. The rates will bo
made by the other roads on the 10th , Noth-
ng was said about the reduction In the
through rate to 15 cents , none of the lines
meeting It at present. There lus baon little
through trnfllc , however , and the reduction
is not considered one-tenth ns much ns that
: n local rates. Said u member of the associ
ation at the adjournment this evening :
"Tho reduction is severe and will bust
some of the Hues badly. " 'iboso of us which
: iavo lines to the Missouri rlvoi1 are trying
; o Iocall70 the break , but wo nro fearful of
.ho action of the Chicago , SU Paul & Kansas
3ity. That line has repeatedly threatened
: o carry northwestern reductions to the
Missouri river , und if it does this time our
visions of ull the paying trnfllu wo could
laiuilo wonldgo a-gltuunoring. Wo nro hope
ful , however , that the Chicago , St. Paul &
Kaunas City will mnko Its fight before a divis
ion of traffic in the Inter-Stale Hallway asso
ciation. It can hnvo all the business It wants
if it don't , cut Missouri river rates. Thu St.
Paul reduction in locals is the most serious
made by the Chicago roads in tbreo years.
In view ot all the circumstances I see no
way for an ndvunco in the rates. Wo will
lie satisfied If the thing don't spread. "

CHICAGO , Sept. 14. Tlio action of the Chicago
cage , Uurlington & Northern road in reduc
ing the freight rules between Chicago and
St. Paul to n10 cent basis claimed the undi
vided attention of the representatives of the
western unu northwestern lines to-duy. The
Burlington & Northern evidently calculated
that they would have reduced rates in Jure
at least one day before competitors , but the
other rends refused to sea the matter in that
Unlit and all the rates will come down to
gether. There seems no doubt that MIs-
wurl rivnr rates will also bo pulled down ,
but the most serious result will probably bo
the reduction In the Iowa distance tariff.

Nnw Yoitic , Sept. 14. The Evening Sua
in its lust edition prints u sensational story
of tin attempt to rob the estate of the late
Christopher Meyer of $ " ,000,000 by means of
forgery , and charges Henry S. Ivos with the
crime. The Sun headlines nro as follows :

For several years back Meyer hud had
dealings with Staynor which had resulted In
a loss to Meyer of about $100,000. Staynor
was Indebted for about that sum to Meyer.
After going into Insolvency ho compromised
the debt leaving u balance of many thousand
dollars unpaid. When Staynor & Ivcs became -
came squeezed for funds Staynor bethought
himself of u novel and effective experiment
for recapturing old man Meyer's ' confidence
and making him a contributor to tbo scheme
in which he had embarked with the thieving
iVftcr drawing up tbo Mineral Hauge fund ,
of which Ivcs & Co. hud made thomsulvcs de
positories , immediately after they hud got
control of the road Staynor presented him
self to Meyer in nhlgh moral attitude. Ho de
clared to Meyer that ho httd come to perform
what bo considered his duty as a Christian
and an honest man ; that ho was now hau-
pily In funds sufllclent to discharge ! the last
emit'of his obligation und that
it was for that purpose . ho had
called. Meyer from that time on
gave imnlicit credence to all of Stuynor's
declarations , and was soon persuaded by him
to give his aid to the syndicate formed by
Ives , Staynor & Nottor. Ho agreed to re
ceive for them , when purchased and brought
to Now York , a total of 0,000 snares of
Cincinnati , Hamilton & Dayton common
stock at an average price not to exceed 115
per cent und to carry it for them , receiving
0 per cent for interest on his money , par ar
rangement , which was practically n loan by
Meyer to that extent upon tbo stock since. It
was agreed that Ivcs nnd Staynor should
east the vote upon It at all elections of the
road and ut all stockholders' meetings. This
agreement was carried out by Meyers to tha
letter. The stock was hold In his name dur
ing all the existence of the swindling firm of
II. S. Ivcs & Co. , and when the inevitable
exposure uud crash came it was still so hold.
Tha exposure of Ives and Staynor's un-
scrupulousncss , the dally mention of his own
name in connection with them , and u keen
sense of disgrace , drove Meyer to his grave
in a few months. Within three
months after Meyer's death there was
put into operation through Ivcs' agency
n scheme to impoverish Meyer's
estate , and to open to himself and Ills con
federates u mine of ? 7COO,000 ,
In the fall of 188 ! ) there was begun in an
Ohio court u suit by Albert Netter against
Henry S. Ives , George H , Staynor ana the
executors of the estate of Christopher : Meyer
for the balance of the purchase money of his
syndicate interest remaining unpaid. Vol
uminous depositions in that action wore
taken In this city during ull lust fall , but
only the most inougre outlines of the case
were over made public. No sooner , how
ever , had the plaintiff begun his case than
the collusive character of the action was re
vealed. IVPS and Staynor wore nominally
the defendants , but they were the principal
witnesses whom the plaintiff called to prove
his claim against themselves. Neither of
them was solvent , nnd the manifest inten
tion was to turn to thu only responsible de
fendant the estate of Christopher Meyer ,
'lo make that estate answerable it was neces
sary to prove that Meyer hud been n partner
of the Ivos gang , und us surh was responsible
for ull their losses. Meyer was dead und
could deny nothing. The ready lips of Ives
nnd Staynor mvoro with affected reluctance
to everything essential to prove his partner
ship. Tly\V produced duplicates ot all their
own letters to Meyer , which , If accepted ,
would nave made him u partner. Hut un
fortunately for the scheme , outside of tliolr
own declarations they could prove no accept-
unco by Moyur of their offers. Ives nnpro-
cmtod the difUculticit of the situation and
proceeded characteristically to overcome
them. It was necessary to produce sonio
writing binding Meyer , None such was In
existence , and the very fact of such n thing
had been disclaimed by Ivos and Siuynor in
their depositions , liul to a "Napoleonic ; "
mind such obstacles are trivial. Ifthodoo.
uniont did tiot exist It must bo mudo to ex
ist. The project was no sooner conceived
than executed. Facilities were not wanting ,
Stuynor had been an engraver la his youth.
Ives himself wanot unskillful with the pen.
Accordingly at the next meeting there was
voluntarily produced bv Staynor a document
which mot ull the conspirators' require-
incuts. Without the slightest prior suggo * . *
tlon It was sprung Into being fully in mured
and ready fcr business , O ( course It clearly
thawed Meyer to bo u partner of lyoa , Stay-
nor ft Nottcr , and therefore responsible for
all claims atrulnst thorn to the full extent ot
Ills estate. '
A Sun reporter this morning had an Inter *
view with Ivcs , and ho still insists that the
Initials were genuine.
