Unitux , July 2. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to THE UKI : . ] Emperor Wil
liam and his henchman Count Cnprivl bavo
reason to bo grateful to Pnnco Bismarck.
Had they boon bigger men they would hnvo
thanked him for bis late imprudence , not
damned him , for never did an adversary
help them moro than the ex-chancellor
when m n moment of inrautlon or
anger ho confided opinions to newspapers.
With hardly ono dissentient voice , Prince
Bismarck's countrymen buvo blamed his
frankness. Friends of the grout statesman
bavo , for once , been almost as severe as his
enemies. It may bo added that on all hands ,
right or wrong , tbo utterances of
the prlnco In the now famous
interviews with the Nouo Frelo Presso
and Wostdulscho Allogomolnoeitung bavo
harmed him much moro than his foes. A
woolt ago the German emperor was un
popular , Count Caprlvi seemed tottering ,
and Prince Bismarck was the hero. Now if
the emperor Is not more beloved , bo ut least
is less disliked. Count Caprivi has been
strengthened , and his great predecessor has
been seriously weakened.
They lla\u Kcnllcil In Kind.
How have tbo powers that bo acknowl
edged the latest of services Prlnco Bismarck
has rendered them ! Not by silence , which
would bavo been adroit. Not by affectations
of disdain , which might have been Intelligi
ble , but by the bitter , llerco railing and ac
cusations of tbo statesman who built up tbo
'lorman empire. Leaders in the Nordoutschoa
Allogomomu Zoitung , which undo such n
commotion this week , were inspired oy the
emperor himself. Their publication was the
outcome of long conferences between tuo
young monarch and bis chancellor. Tboy
were the reflections of tno wrath with which
thosovcricn , no loss than tbo Count Caprivi ,
bad watched the Dresden ovations , and atone
ono moment they seemed likely to bo followed
by an even moro unseemly demonstration ,
which would have "shaken 'tho Uoglionc'o'or1
the Germans to their ruler , nntl have sapped
the empire's foundations.
I am assured tbat in the first blush of the
.excitement caused by the appearance of the
"Vienna Interview , the emperor talked of hav
ing Prlnoo Bismarck arrested.
"Machon wir a , wo bei GcifTclten" ( "Lot
us treat him like Golffcken" ) , said his maj
oily. Fortunately for the monarch tbo
yjuthlul "war lord" sobered down and the
prince was denounced in tbo somt-ollldal
orean. Ho was proclaimed a traitor. Ho
was threatened with Impeachment , but bo
was not arrested.
Count Ciiprlvl's colleagues , who know
what nasty shafts the cx-cbunccllor has in
Ills quiuor , have showed no eagerness to
enter on the light with Bismarck. They
would profo * to lot things stand as they are ,
and avert a fresh scandal.
lllxmarclc Is DaiiKoroiiH.
It is not sure , though , that their wishes
will bo granted. In his present mood Bis
marck is dangerous. Ho has burned his
boats , broken with his sovereign and made
tils own return to ofllco impossible. It may
not suit him to refrain from further con-
lllets. Baron Blolscnrsoacr , who is said to
have arranged the Interview in the Nouo
l < Vula Prosso , has fallen into dlsfavor-nt the
court and will probablv bo loss conspicuous
in politics henceforth than foamorly. It Is
no secret that to xomo extent , at all ovcnts ,
ho controls the Viennese organ mid his In
tervention In tbo Bismarck question has
b 'on resented.
The emperor will have plenty of time , now
that ho hai started for Norway , to rrllea ;
upon the wisdom or unwisdom of his recent
conduct , and It miy bo hoped that , he will
abstain from adding to tbo prevailing con
fusion by prolonging tbo campaign against

Bmi.iv , July 2 , Prlnco Bismarck has
boon assiduously entreated ut Kissongon to
delay further attack on the emperor and
Chancellor Caprivi. Ho maintains , how
ever , absolute silence , except to deny having
attacked the omporor. His special organs
tbo West Deutsche Allogomolno Zeitung , the
Munich Allogomoino Zoltung and the Ham
burger Natohriston have also become
silent. Tbo Hamburger Natchnstan for
days past has not made the slightest refer
ence to the situation. This silence does not
mean cessation of the conquest. The parties
are cxcltou and are arranging themselves
for or against Prlnco Bismarck. The loaders
of the national liberals , thojeh disapprov
ing the prince's recent utterances , are ready
to resent any iutorforonco with him or to op
pose the government if It ventures upon a
prosecution. A strong section of the con
servatives are in a similar mood. On the
other band iho froisslnnigo party ana tbo
central party want the government to tuko
immediate action against the pnncs. Ai
a mooting of the party , the speaker declared
that the revelations maOo by Prlnco Bis
marck verged upon high treason and that ho
ought to bo tried for that offense. They de
nounced him as seeking to embroil Europe in
order to avcno himself on tbo emperor and
Chancellor von Caprivi and as compromising
the case whllo giving vent to bis ill humor.
HUiimrck Mint lie Careliil.
The Frankfort Zoltung , a liberal organ ,
urges that It Is time to end the toleration tha
government has accorded Prince Bismarck.
Tbo ministers , it says , should accept the
challenge bo has ofTorod. They will need
all , but iho struggle will enable the eovorn-
ment to distinguish between ( U friends and
its enemies. The ofllcinl opinion is that if
the prince renews his attacks , oroiocutlon
will bo inevitable and prompt.
In tbo meantime Pnnco Bismarck Is enjoy
ing repose after his triumphal progress , and
bis presence atjilssongen has.rtruUru crowds
to the place. Ho resides In a villa belonging
to tno Bavarian government , to which is at
tached spacious grounds and n garden along
the river Saalc. Ho has n guard of Bavarian
soldiers , who nave been specially detached
to honor him. A carnage and horse for his
use have been sent by tbo prince regent of
Bavaria. Kvory night a band plavs in front
of tbo villa and uurinc its performances the
prince , smoking a long pip ? , can generally bo
scon at a window listening. He treats tbo
members of the band at intervals with
copious draughts of beer anu hobnobs with
the bandminor over vvino and clears. The
crowd greets him with repeated "hoohs. "
The prince seldom poet out , bjt ho receives
a largo number of visitors.

His outings ore sometimes accompanied by-

to him by a fervent lady admirer , was not at
all serious. In a private loiter to u Hamburg
friend , alluding to tno threatening prosoou
tlon of himself , Prlnco Bismarck says that
ho has too much respect for himself not to
know the limit beyond which nc ought not to
go. In raferrlng toothers , he deUos anv ono
to show that he has overstepped tha limit.
The Munich Allogomolno Xoitung returns to

Tbo West Dautscho Allogomolno Z'jltung

It was bedraggled and tired looking crowd
of passengers who arrived at Quconstown
this afternoon. They bad undergone all the
tortures of agonizing suspense and bad nioro
than ouco believed themselves doomed to
destruction. As it is their oscapa pcoms
almost miraculous. The danger of sinking
on board ship is not half so terrible us the
perils which resulted from what may bo
called the panic-stricken management of
those in charge of tbo ship. The passengers
uro outspoken and forcible in their criticism
of the manner in which they wore loft al
most to shift for themselves.
Among the llrst to reach Cork today were
Prof. Cameron ot Princeton university ,
accompanied by Bayard Stockton , prosecutor
of tbo court of common p'oas for Mercer
county , Now Jersey , his lainlly and the two
Misses Tyng of Now York. Their expe
rience reads like a leaf out of ono of Sloven-
son's or Dr. Clark Russell's most sensational
ocean tales. I give you Prof. Cameron's
story In his own words :
rijluif Through tlio l"ug ,
"Wo ran into fog oft Fastuot at about 5
o'clock Friday tftornoon. It Is not necessary
for mo to tell you that in spite of tha thick
ness of tbo fog the engines of the ship kept
golnp at full speed , out tbo fog born was
not blown. Tbo only danger wo feared
was that wo might cut down ono of tuo
many Ashing vessels , watch are very "numer
ous oit. tha cost. But wo trusted In good
lucfTand tfcc'wiil'of thu captaln * to pull " -"us I
through. After dinner most of tbo passen
gers were on dock in happy expectancy of
soon sceinp the tender from Queenstown ,
wqich was to take ashore a number of pas
sengers , including the IrUh-Amorican peace
deputation , who are bent on creating
harmony between the fighting homo rule
factions. Captain Kadford and two officers
were on deck. Suddenly I saw a long line of
rocks not more than HOO foot ahead of us. I
rubbed my eyes under the impression that I
wa * suffering from an optical illusion , but
the more I rubboj my oyus the nearer wo
cimo to the rocks until the shrieks of several
women convinced ino It was live roallty , end
that wo were making a bop line for what
looked like the jaws of death.
"When the inevitable collUion between
the ship and rocks arrived , it was loss forci
ble than I Had expected , for we gilded safely
on tbo ledge and seotned lo rest there in an
easy position. The engines were reversed
the very moment when danger became ap
parent , and to this fact alone 1 ascribe our
oicapo from destruction. Captain Had ford
loft the bridge after the accident and seemed
undecided what course to pursue.
It "ISattleil" the Cnptaln.
"Ho plainly 'rattled , ' and ho can hardly
bo blamed. But ono thought seemed upper
most in bis mind , and that was tbo loss of
bis ship. Purser Kavanaugh did much to
allay the fears , and under tbo circumstances
tbo calmness and cool Judgment of tbo pas
sengers. who , acting without instructions or
knowledge of what to do , was wonderful and
praiseworthy , A long wooden plank was
placed from the bow of tbo ship to the cliff ,
and wo could bavo walked ashore , out this
operation was attended with moro or loss of
danger. Finally three boats were ordered
over , and manned by sbortbandod crows of
"I am not exaggerating when I say that
tbo first boat bad to bo cut loose with an nxo
before It would yield to the swinging of the
davitts. About fifty passengers were put in
each boat , and after much exertion , in which
wo had the pleasure of helping the sailors
handle tbo boat , wo reached sboro , all the
woman in a more or loss state ot exhaustion.
Hero wo met a number of coast guards to
whoso invaluable services wo ewe much. In
order to roach a place of safety wo
were obliged to climb a sixty-foot ladder ,
along the steep sides of the el iff.
This was a most perilous task. Tbo foot
hold was not particularly Inviting , and u
practical to it bus not given mo a bleb opin
ion of this manner of elevating oneself , even
in time of dangor. After reaching the end
of tbo rope wo were obliged to clamber along
the scraggy sides of tbo rock , but the women
accomplished It with courage born of des
"Once In safety , wo were taken in hand by
kind-hearted peasants who liolpoJ us along
vltb words of comfort and cheer , and did
everything possible to make our lot easier. "
Tbo passengers nra being well cared for by
agents of tbo In in an line , who are very zeal
ous in attending to tbolr wants. Tno steamer
is In a norllous position. She has eighteen
feet of water under her and her forward
compartments are tilling. Very llttlo doubt
for her safety Is cxprossad hero , although all
tlio passengers will probably save oaggago ,
whlcti can bo saved if the prompt measures
directed by the management are carried out.

After the tomnornry organization of the

sumed in speeches by Upnucllj' of Minnesota , ,

tbo harmony displayed on nil sides a gonulno

the delegates to proceed In any other than
the most deliberate manner.
At the close of the afternoon session an
adjournment was taiton until Monday at 8
o'clock , wnen the permanent organization
will bo made aud the report of the commiltoo
on rules and resolutions presented and
adopted. After that will como tbo nomina

The convention Is entirely at sea as to Its
presidential ticket and the indications are
thai when tbo roll of states Is called for the
nrcsentatlou of candidates for the presi
dency at least a dozen names will no placed
before the convention. The telegram from
Judge ( Jrosnam , curtly Inlormlng Uonoral
Weaver , Ignatius Donnelly and others that
ho ivould not accept the nomination on any
platform , settles all doubts us to iho Groshum
position , and ho Is no longer mentioned lu
connection with tbo presidential nomination.
The candidate nmt froolv mentioned U
General James B. SVoavor of Iowa , and
there Is llttlo doubt tbat no will load uncn
tbo first ballot , although tbcra will bo so
many candidates In the fif'd ' that it Is qulto
Improbable that any nomination will bo
reached until nt least two or three ballots
have boon taken. Soiuitor Slowart of Nevada -
vada , Senator ICylo of South Dakota , lena-
tlus Donnelly of Minnesota , Senator John P.
Jones of Nevada , nud Paul Vandorvoort , are
only a faw of ibosu mentioned in connocllou
with tbo presidential nomination.
Looking lor 1'iivorlln SOUK.
It Is very probable tbat n doicn favorite
sent > will como Into publlu prominence before
the convention opens on Monday morning.
There are sunlit Indications that delegates
who go to rnuko up tbo people's party conven
tion are not likely to altogether forgot their
former utllliations In balloting for the prosi
doncy. Thu farmer * alliance people are dis
posed to favor a presidential candidate who
has neon an active member of the nlllanco ,
whllo the ICnighih of I ibor are In the same
way likely to record with special favor ono
who has been Identified with their organisa
tion. In like manner the radical free silver
men look very kindly toward the candidates
from the stiver states.
And It 1s probably because of thn signifi
cant numerical strength of the sliver delegates -
gates that Senators Jones and Stewart have
suddenly loomed Into prominence. A urcat
many of the silver men are qulto enthusiastic ]
for Senator Stewart of Nuvuda , but tbo delegates -
gates from his own slate maintain qulto
positively that he is not n candidate and de
clare that tbo wl-ih longer to retain him In
congress should lJ respected. Despite tha
position of tbo Nevada delegates , however ,
the members of the Silver league generally
look with much favor upon Senator Stewart ,
and nothing but thu decided stand of tbo
delegates from hU own ntutu will prevent his
name being presented to the convention.
