Announcement from Berlin of Its
Withdrawal Creates n Sensation.
CHICAGO , April 0. [ Special Telegram to
Tnu iSnr : . | The cablegram from Berlin today
stating tlmt the German government has de
finitely withdrawn the embargo placed upon
American pork created quite a sensation
among the packers bora. The manager for
Armour & Co. , however dtvll-i' ' to credit
the report. Ho said If it wen , rn liu liouso
would have heard of It from Berlin , " \Vo
have high hopes , " ho added , "that ultimately
the embargo will bo taken off. But tlio ban
dits that will coma to America ns the result
nf such an action are not so great as many
people.suppose. 1 ho inspection liiws of Ger
many , which It would bo absurd to have re
pealed , are so strict and the fees charged by
the Inspectors nro o high that profits are cut
down to u minimum. "
The manager of the International pr.cklng
company thought the report nt toast praiaa-
tuiv. It bad , however , already caused an
ndvnnco in prices , nnd should it provo
nuthcntlu there will bo a still stronger mar
ket. Nelson Morris thought If the report
was true ho would have heard of It from
Germany. If It U correct It will help the
.American market Immensely. If tbo report
Is verified ho will begin the shipment of pork
to Germany at OHM. Other prominent pack
ers expressed the same views.

WASHINGTON , D. C. , April 0. 1
The passage of the direct tnx bill has
caused an enormous amount of extra work to
bo thrust upon the ofllclals of the treasury
dcpartmout. From all the states In the union
letters nro rccewod dally Inquiring about the
repayment , nnd there Is a wldo spirit of
misapprehension as to Just what tha direct
tax was. From Indiana and Nebraska , from
Texas nnd from Malno loiters have como in
quiring about the chaneo of securing repay
ment by persons who bollovo they have paid
the direct tax to the government commission
ers. In many Instances Internal revenue re
ceipts are sent to substantiate the claims , but
of 'course the treasury can do nothing for
the claimants , ns the tax collected In
all the the northern states was col
lected from the states themselves and not
from Individuals. On the other hand , south
erners have direct claims against the refund
money , and In order to facilitate the proofs of
these claims the department has decided to
cngago rooms outside the treasury bulliluig ,
where ull the recorus will bo kept and where
clerks can go through the flies and secure
sucli evidence as may bo necessary to assist
In returning to tho" people who paid the
money the amounts that may bo found duo
them. This Is a new departure from the
government's methods , as up to the present
time It has always been to throv ns many
barriers In the way of getting monuy out of
the treasury as was possible. It Is believed
in the treasury that It will bo at least two
years before tbo last dollar of the dlvidBud
tax is paid out from the vaults.

WIIT OEiiM.vsv nusnn THE EMIHUOO.
A cablegram from Berlin , printed this
evening , states that the Gorman government
has finally determined to withdraw the embargo
barge placed upon' American pork. This Is
duo largely to two causes. The first and
most potential was the passage of the moat
Inspection bill by the last congress , which
bill , by the way , promises to open up a wider
market for American hog and cattle products
in Europe than ever before existed. The
other cause was the diplomacy shown by
Minister Pbclps , who bos been commended
upon nil sldos upon the manner In which ho
has conducted the negotiations which , while
not yet completed , have progressed suffic
iently to enable the departippnt of agricul
ture people to predict that there will belittle
little diniculty from this time forward
ir. the way of landing American meat pro
ducts In the Gorman empire. In this con
nection it is stated at the department that
the Inspectors under the Inspection bill will
bo appointed directly by the secretary of
agriculture and that they will bo required to
bo graduates of vctorlpnry colleges and men
thoroughly versed In entile diseases. Already
about u score of applications have been re
ceived , but Is is not likely that any appoint
ments will bo raado for a week or ten days.
The Inspectors to bo appointed will bo sta
tioned at tha slaughtering establishments of
the country , principally in Chicago , Omaha
and Kansas City.
JUDCIE CIlOUNSn'S CIIAXCES.
It was announced in these dispatches a day
or two ago that Senator Manderson was con
fident that Jiulne Crounsu would bo appointed
nsslstantsecrotary of tno treasury. Tlio sen-
ntor loft for Philadelphia on Saturday nnd has
not yet returned , sothatbo has not been form-
all v notified that Judge Crounso Is to DO ap
pointed. Secretary Foster was reticent today
and declined to state positively what had been
donoln the matter , but It was learned thntun-
loss something turns up which Is not now expected -
pected Judge Crounso will bo appointed
assistant secretary of the troasjiry within u
Jay or two. This will glvoNNebraska a
strong position In the most important de
partment Of tbo government , nnd the friends
of Judge Crounso are contldcnt that ho will
mnko an excellent official who will reflect
credit on the president and tbo administra
tion.
ciunt.E.sTo.v J.-OT nnAuy ron SBA.
It is stated at the navy department that
the cruiser Charleston , which a news dis
patch reports as being under orders from the
stnto department to proceed to Honolulu ,
will not bo ro.idy for sea for at loastteu days
or a fortnlgnt. Tbo state department has
not and cannot order a naval vessel from ono
uolnt to another. It may request the navy
department to make such an order , but in
tbfs case It has not made a request. The
original Intention of tbo navy department
was to send the Charleston back to Honolulu
when she arrived at San Francisco , but
meantime the Chilian war seemed to
indicate the necessity of another United
States naval vessel being lent to
Chill in addition to the Baltimore , which
arrived at Tolcohuana Friday , and the Snn
Francisco , which is to sail Wednesday for
Chili. So that the navy department has not
vet decided where to send the Charleston ,
but will select her destination when she is
ready for sea , according to the necessities of
tbo hour.

Important Decision l > r the United
StnlcH cm rcml Court.
WASHINGTON , April 0. The United States
supreme court today reversed the Judgment
of the sit promo court of Montana in the case
of Andrew J. D.ivls , nppolUnt , vs Henry
Wlobbold , and ordered thd casoroinatided ; for
a now trial. Tula was at suit for damages
and Involved tha title to certain lands in the
town of Butte , Mont. Tno case turns upon
the construction to bo given to the provisions
of the townslto law' ' of the United
States. Davis held the title uudor the town-
stto entry act , of which ouo provUton was
that no title should bo acquired under the
net to any gold , silver or copper mlno or to
any valid mining claim hold under the exist
ing laws. Wlobbolu claimed the tltlo under
the general mining laws , "nnd when Davis
offered to provo that nt the time the patent
of the Uutto townslto' was Issued the
promises In dispute were not known to bo
valued for minerals of any kind , objection
was taken on the ground ihnt Wiobbold's
patent showed that ns a matter of fncl the
premises did contain valuable mineral lauds ,
and as such could not bo granted by the
townslto patent , The coUrt sustained the
objection , and this ruling , which was really
decisive of tno controversy , this court over
rules. 'J ho question Involved In the suit nas
been long In dispute and there have boon
various nnd , In some instances , diverse
opinions on it In the executive departments.
Thn tTtiltnil Ktntivt Rimminn rnnrt hai sev
eral times passed upon it by Inference and
implication , but this , U is said , Is the first
direct decision. The court , in Its opinion ,
written by Justice Field , says : "Tho Im
portant question U whether , In * the absence
of knowledge that thcro were any valuable
mineral lands within the town site , Davis
can bo deprived of the premises purchased
nnd occupied by him because of the subse
quent discovery of minerals In them and the
issue of a patent to the discoverer. After
much consideration wohnfocoino to the con
clusion that this question must bo answered
In the negative. It Is iruo the language
of the statutes touching the acquisition of
tltlo to mineral lands within tbo limits of
town sites Is very broad , but In strictness
they impart only that the provisions of the
town site law shall not bo the means of pass
ing tltlo also to valuable mining lands. Wo
think they must bo held mnrcly to prohibit
the passage of title to turning lauds then
known to exist and not to prohibit the ac
quisition for all time of mines which then lay
burled unknown in the depths of thu earth.

WASHINGTON , April 0. Secretary Noble
today readered a decision rejecting applica
tions to perfect about forty-two entries under
the { linber and stone acts iuade by members
of the ICowah co-oporfttlvo colony In Cali
fornia , now located within ] the Sequoia na
tional park reservation created by nets
of the last congress. The secretary holds
that these applications to purchase under tbo
timber and stone nets are not entries of land ,
hence It was competent for congress to reserve -
servo lands. Their claims In casns of home
stead and pre-emption onlrios are also denied.
Those colonists have expended In the con
struction of public roads and other Improve
ments about ? 100,000 , and while the decision
may result in hardships Wi the colonists , any
iclfef must come through congress.

clearly Indicates the decided drift of the
Catholic church toward modern democracy.
Hut those who have enjoyed the confidence-
Pope Leo know that ho has always
considered Hof prlmo Importance for the
church to free Usolf from Identification
vlth old dynastic properties. But It was
necessary to move slowly so ( is to wound
royalist and aristocratic susceptibilities as
little ns possible. In all countries the pope
lias favorite correspondents , upon whoso ad-
vlco ho places special reliance , and who nro
charged with carrylnir out his personal pol
icy. Cardinal Lavlgior Is one of these , and
when on October U Inst Cardinal
Lnvlglor arrived lu Homo the pope charged
him personally with the Important religious
and political mission of bringing the church
In Franco into hnnnony with the republic.
Luvlgler's speech brought storm of loiters
to the Vatican. All Prance grow Infuriated.
While the Idea of the toxl wai suggested and
approved by the Vatican , the form It took was
not satisfactory. The ardent pritmito of
Africa wont somoivhiit hoyond bounds. Ho
attacked tlio old parties and taunted
thorn with having been la alliance with
Boulnngism. But this vigorous language bad
a good Hldo. It made all Franco understand
unmistakably that the church intended to
break with the past. There was no more
equivocal mennlnc. The pope said with re
gard to this : "Tho cardinal has done right ,
it was necessary to strike a great blow In
order to get out of this condition of hesitancy
and confusion. "

CHICAGO , April 0. The municipal election
tomorrow will close one of the inoit peculiar
and hotly contested campaigns in the history
of Chicago. No loss than llvo candidate * are
making a contest for the mayoralty , and ns
botwcon four of these. It is impossible
to forecast the result. The friends of
each iwall apparent candor claims about tl'O
same number of votes 53,000 to 00,000-for
their respective favorites.
The first candid atu In tbo field was Klmcr
Wash burn , cx-chlof ol tlio police and ex-chief
of the United States secret service bureau.
Ho was put in nomination prior
to the regular party convention * , ostensibly
by the independent citizens' move
ment , but It is understood that his
chief support primarily came from
n1 secret organization , whoso object is
to minimize the Influence of the foreign ele
ments In the city administration , and which
claims to have 2,000 voters In its ranks. The
argument in favor of Its candld.uo Is the
necessity , in view of tlio approach of
the world's f.ilr , of putting the city into
condition , ns to clean streets and
other public Improvements , that visitors from
well kept cities In Europe will not bo
shocked , and to render the police
force so efficient thrtt thieves , gamblers
and other criminal classes will not
dare ( lock to the city In anticipation of a rich
harvest. The saloons also are to bo vigor
ously looked after.
There are two democratic candidates
DeWtttC. Crogler , Iho present Incumbent ,
and Carter Harrison , ex-mayor. Ilairlson
bcgnn his canvass before tbo
democratic convention met , niloginir
weakness and catering to the bad
elements on the part of the existing adminis
tration , and promising reform. The light at
the primaries was bitter , Ami at
the convention Hnrrion's men , ac
cusing the Crcglcritcs of fraud , with
drew nnd nominated their man. The
remainder of the democratic candidates nom
inated Cregior. The state central committee
took the matter up ami decided that Crcgler
was the regular nominee. In the meantime
Harrison received the endorsement of tha
personal rights league , a body niauo up
largely of Germans , and ho continued In the
field , making a vigorous eauvnss.
Then the republicans met nnd nominated
Hempstcad Wa hburn , son of the latoEllhu
B. Waskburn , United States minlstnr to
Franco during the Franco-Prussian
war. Ho is running on n
platform which promises the application of

vorco of the pollco force from politic,1' .

Ho Expresses Himself Upon the Gen
eral I'ollt on ! hit tuition.
WASHINGTON' , April 0 , The Star this evenIng -
Ing has a long interview with Senator Ed
munds on the general political situation.
Speaking of the farmers' alllanco movement ,
the senator said that some people tire trying
to persuade the farmers that laws have been
made which operate unjustly upon thorn nnd
that laws hnvo not boon made that would
furnish them with moro rapid and
steady prosperity. Ho thinks they nro
to a largo dcgreo mistaken and In
tlmo will discover It. Indeed , ho presumes
that the largest part of reflecting farmers
understand that crops cannot bo Increased by
legislation or debts honestly.
Askctt what the danpcrs were to both of
tbo great parties In the situation , the senator
said that if in the next presidential election
the fanners' alliance should carry many
suites without having n majority of the elec
toral college there would bo no election by
the people , and the present house of represen
tatives , being largely democratic , that party
, would olectlts candidate. As to thodangorof
the republican party , It Is that the nlllanco
may carry some states that , would otherwise
go republican , nnd thus , if there was no olcc-
tlon by the people , give the election to the
democratic candidates.
Asked If ho thouaht silver -would bo an
Issue In the next campaign , the
senator did hot think It would ho
an Issue between tbo republican nnd demo
cratic parties , for ho thinks tli.it the demo
cratic party will imrdly wish to make it an
Issue to theextcniof running any consider
able risk of separating gold and silver ns the
coin inonoy of the country , nnd certainly the
great uody of tbo repnbllcans will not. Up to
tna point of safety then-publican party will
bo In favor of using silver ns money ,
ns It always has been.
What the farmers' nlllanco platform , if the
party should nominate a presidential candi
date will bo , ho could not say. "The third
party movement , " continued Senator Ed
munds , "undoubtedly exists In tno farmers'
nlllanco. If successful to the extent -
tent of getting the president and
congress It would doubtloess lead to the en
actment of measures that they have Indi
cated , and whether they were good or had
for the farmers would soon bo known. " The
senator did not think communism Isnttho
bottom of the farmers' movement , and
added that the percentage of commun
ists in this country ho believes to
bo very small. As capital was always watch
ing the conditions of the government of the
country , the success of any movement which
would "render unsound legislation probable
\vould greatly disturb 'tho llnaucca of the
country , anil that , of course , would reach
every branch of labor und business.
