romantic story. Popperkorn Is n youni ; Gor
man , graduate of ono of the universities at
Heidelberg , Germany , and nn excellent civil
engineer. Some six years ago , whllo resid
ing In Richardson county , ho became enam
ored of n young girl not yet fifteen , daughter
of n well-to-do farmer. The girl returned
his love , but her parents refused to allow
them to wed. As n result they ran nwny to
St. Louis to got married , but before the cere
mony was performed they were overhauled
by the irate father , who ' " pre
ferred the charge of statutory rape ngalnst
the young Gorman. Ho was taken back to
Richardson county and tried. Although the
circumstances wcro In his favor his attor
neys did not work very hard for him and ho
received n sentence of seven years. Inwardly
rebelling ngalnst man's injustice ho went to

term , being released in August last. Ills

there nroso an Intense rivalry for the affec

HOME , April 13. [ Special Cablegram to

view todny In regard to the droibund , held
that the renewal of the triple alliance \vivs of
secondary linporlanco as compared with a
nnntvltli Knplnml. On tnnnv
occasions , said the premier , the policy of the
drelbund harmonized perfectly with Urltlsh
Ideas , yet Lord Salisbury hnd never adhered
to the Urolbund treaty. Itnjy's renewal of her
contract with the alliance depended on the
general situation In Europe , which was now
changing every day. It was dlfllcult to
Imagine that England and Italy would ro-
mnln passive while war was being waged
by Russia and Franco ngalnst Germany and
Austria. Kvon If the Droibund did not
oxlst , Italy might find it entirely to her in
terest to tango herself on the sldo of Great
Britain. Should Russia refrain from Inter
fering In tbo affairs of the other powers ,
thus securing the absolute neutrality of
Great Britain , Italy would not accept under
the contingencies provided for in . the
drcibund convention. If Austria attacked
Hussla , or Germany declared war with
France , their action would not Imply that
Italy was to Join In the movement , By the
terms of the contracts she was entitled tenet
net as a neutral nation and remain so. The
case was different if any ono of the
contracting powers was made the object of
attack. Premier dl Kudlni declared ho was
convinced that Franco , despite her excessive
armaments , would nuver nlono wiigo n war of
aggression whllo the drcibund continued to
act as the safeguard of Europe. In view of
the pruvailiug temper in Franco it Is per
fectly idle to discuss the question of the dis
solution of the drcibund.
The Army and Flnniicca of France.
PAUIS , April 18. [ Special Cablegram to
THE BEE. | Apropos of the future increase
of the effective of the French army and of
the minister of war's demand on the budget
committee of the chamber of deputies for
further appropriations , Senator Barthol-
omy St. Haire , minister of foreign
affairs , said : "It becomes moro and more
evident that Franco is on the hlirh road to
bankruptcy. Wo often hear It said that
France Is ono of the richest countries in
Europe. This Is qulto truo. So , too , wo
would call a man rich who had an Income of
1,000,000 francs a year. But suppose ho spent
1,500,000 francs and suppose ho kept on
doing so year after year , what would his
wealth amount to under such circumstances )
And yet this Is just what Franco is doing ,
and has been doing for a very long time. The
upshot of the whole thing must bo that all
shall huvo to repudiate our debt as we did in
the first revolution and start afresh.
I greatly admire the magnificent man
ner in which the United States has
gone on paying off Its tremendous debt con
tracted during the gigantic civil war. Wo
ought to tmltato in u modest way the Amer
ican but several 'circumstances '
example , oppose -
pose this. In the tlrst place the wasteful
ness of our great departments of government
is something frightful. Whllo it cannot be
said that there is any outright stealing of the
public funds , tbo extravagance is tremendous ,
and no government dares incur the anger In
clearing out this nupcan stable. Then again ,
our military sy.stom is so expensive , and
keeps on growing moro so every day , that It
seems almost a hopeless tnsic to try to stop
this suicidal financial policy. Wo cannot re
duce our army , for there stands that Alsace-
Lorraine difllcultlos still undecided. What
on unpardonable sin It was for Germany to
take those provinces. Wo would willingly
have paid many moro millions of francs
could wo have preserved our territory intact.
But Franco will never abandon Alsace-
Lorraine without a struggle , which , when It
comes will bo a deadly one. Franco must
win or bo effaced from the map of Europe
like Poland. Sbo will light to the last man ,
for she will see that her very existence as a
nation depends on victory. And if she comes
off the victor , in-what an exhausted state she
will probably ho loft ! Then the ordinary
financial situation , rendered still more
oppressive by the increased expenditures of
the supreme struggle , will weigh down upon
the bleeding nation and bankruptcy will then
be inevitable. "

Very Mtt'o Now nt Washington.
WASHINGTON , April 13. But two facts
could bo added today to the public stock of
Information respecting the diplomatic en
tanglement with Italy growing out of the
Now Orleans tragedy. Onoof those was that
the state department has not received any
intimation from the Italian government that
its last note must bo answered before n given
( late. Nor Is such an intimation expected ,
for the department feels that it is acting
properly , and It vvpuld bo a very unusual
course for a nation engaged In diplomatic
negotiations to question the motives upon
which correspondence proceeds. The second
fact is that Secretary Blalno's answer to
Marquis Hudlnl's ' last note has not yet boon
forwarded. It was probably the secretary's
purpose to accompany the reply with an of-
llclnl statement touching the nationality of
the Now Orleans victims and other fuels
that were expected from ofllcials of the de
partment of Justice In Now Orleans. These
reports have not yet reached Washington.
Unless the secretary is prepared to send the
letter without those facts , It is not likely to
go forward immediately.

As anticipated In these dispatches on
Saturday night last , Enos Nobokcr of Cov-
Ington , Fountain county. Ind. , has been ap
pointed treasurer of tlio United States to
succeed James N. Huston of Connersvlllo ,
Ind. , resigned' . Mr. Huston's resignation
nnd the president's acceptance appear In the
regular press dispatches. The publication of
the letters which have passed bet\vccn Treas
urer Huston and the president will negative
the unjust statements which have been made
to tlio effect "that there was a string tied
to" Mr. Huston's resignation or that tno
president has hesitated nbout the appoint
ment of a new treasurer except from a mo
tive t to Mr. Huston and for
the public welfare.
Mr. Huston has made a capable nnd popu
lar ofllcifd , nnd his departure from Washing

is not in vigorous health , and for that reason
and the further fact that ho has largo busi
ness interests In Indiana nnd elsewhere ho
has much desired to null public life since
labt July or August , when ho first tendered
his resignation. It is understood that Mr.
Huston 'and ex-Congressman Owen of In

America for recreation and to make some
Mr. Nebektr Is hero nnd will enter
Immediately upon the duties of his
ofllco when l.ls bond is filed
nnd approved. Ho has already made
an excellent Impression in official circles , his
clean-cut appearance , business manner and
cordial wnvs having civcn him a welcome
wherever ho has gone. Mr. Nebcker was
born in Fountain county , Indiana , and has
resided there nil his life. Ho Is fifty-four
years old. For twenty-six years ho lived on
a farm adjoining the town of Covington nnd
is an extensive farmer. For a time ho engaged
In the building of railroads and the erection
of buildings. In 18TO ho was elected nmlitor
of Fountain county , and this is the only
ofllco which ho has held. Ho is a director
in both banks in Covington nnd also
the Columbia National bank of Chicago
nnd bus boon connected in one way or another
with the banking business for about twenty
years. Ho is hero and elsewhere recognized
as ono of the most prominent and active poli
ticians in Indiana , and for many years has
been n warm personal and political friend of
President Hnrrisou. '
DIII.AV IN OPENING INDUS IANM19.
Sixty days or moro will elapse before the
Slsscton nnd Wnhpeton Indian reservation ,
lying just north of Watertown , in South Da
kota , Is opened to settlement. Those lands
nro vet unsurvoyed , nnd will not bo
opened to settlement until the com
pletion of certain allotments under the
direction of the Indian ofllco. There will
also be delay In opening the Bertholo lands
in North Dakota and of the Crow reserva
tion in Montana and the Coour d'AIcno lands
iu Idaho. It Is not likely that the conditions of
the requirements for opening to settlement
of any of the Indian reservations abandoned
by act of the late congress will bo complied
with under thrco months.

It Is announced hero this evening that Mrs.

of weeks ago under the wing of John W.

printer of Ohio , to young Mr. Blalno , the
unhappy married life , the separation , Mrs.
Blniuo's olabor tto preparations to go on the

Airs. Blalno's divorce is to Do followed by
her marriage to Dr. William Tillinjfhnst Ball ,
