DKHI.IV , April 1. Now York Herald Cabin
-Special to Tin : HUE. ] Tins government is
seriously considering tlio advisability of
taking sonio retaliatory measures against
France for the expulsion of Huron Wedol
ami Otto Urandes. The political police have
been ordered to furnish a list of all French
Journalists in Ilcrlin , so th it a w.Uch maybe
bo kept on their dispatches. In order to
expel them at their Ilrs' . offonso. This will
not ho very dilllcult , as the French journal
ists here are very few In number. Count
von Minister , the Herman ambassador to
Paris , has also been instructed not to
tolerate any moro attacks in the French
press on the emperor or imperial family.
M. Hcrbette , the French jimb.isstidor hero-
lias also had to listen to sonic very stiff re-
inurks in Willictmstrasso. Ho Ins had sev
eral conferences with the minister of foreign
affairs , who previously was summoned to
make a report to the kaiser , who shares the
indignation of tile minister.
The war party , as you may well suppose ,
Is exceedingly gleeful over the affair ,
and believes that as Chauvinism is
growing In Franco , a warlike
surprise is possible if Franco continues
the same policy. There will bo three inter
pellations on the subject when the Holehstag
meets It is said that Caprivi will profit by
the opportunity to make a strong speech. At
present to hear the news one must direct his
steps to the palace.

I understand that the words of
the pope to Graf von Bollestren ,
representative of the center , "Unite Sagisso
surtout Sagosso , " have not boon Interpreted
as satisfactory , for the reason that they are
considered a warning to the party to hold
together in its refusal to pass the military
bill , but thcro are moro practical reasons
than those conveyed in tin PJ ; > J'S words
which sway the center. Tlicso iiro the well
known wishes of their constituents. Never
theless there is a party at court which is
doing miv'b towards fostering the anti-papal
tendencies which recent events have given
rise to. Thcro is , for instance , the ultrij.-
Protestant party , headed by Court Pro.icher
Frommel and Military Chaplain Hiohtcr ,
who are mailing the utmost of the oppor
tunities tlio occasion offers to exeito the
kaiser against Home.
There has been a pivat deal of ferment in
the royal stables of late , owing to the prep
arations for the Homan visit of the horses
and gala carriages , which will form a part of
the royal impedimenta. The horses number
twenty-eight and will bo forwardeu to Korno
by a special train.
It is strongly denied that any matters of
etiquette have been called into question by
the Vatican. On the contrary , it is asserted
that tlio Vatican has accepted all the
details proposed by Haron Bulow with
out the remark. Additional details ,
which it is understood are still to bo ar
ranged , include the presence of von Mar
shall , minister of foreign affairs , in an inter
view nt the Vatican. It is estimated the
visit to the pope w'll ' last half an hour , and
it is agreed that political questions are to bo
rigidly excluded , ami nothing Is to take
place except a general exchange of the
usual courtesies. The Catholic press hero
loudly insists the kalsc-r is dying to talk
politics , which is certainly not the case , at
least not within the walls of tlio Vatican.

Dr. Miguel , that now most interesting fig-
iiro In the German cabinet , who seems to
eclipse all his colleagues , and oven over
shadows the chancellor , has caused a stir by
demanding the prosecution of two anti-
Semitic orators for asserting at a puhlio
meeting that ho was tlio agent of the Uni
versal Israelitlsh alliance. This is likely to
furnish us another trial , for the anti-Semites
Dick up the gauntlet willingly , as , they have
nothing to lese and much to gain , il.ul it
been any of the other ministers who was
bringing up such a c.iso ho would ho accused
of rashli pandering to the desires of the
anti-Semitic party to obtain notoriety , but
Miguel is so shrewd that wo may bo certain
ho has some strong cards to play.

proof as soon as the Heichstag meets. I
doubt what ho now has proving any more
serious the last batch , but it means
another of these stormy sittings of the
Helcnstag which so annoys the dignity
of the older members , and in which
Ahlwardt so delights. Ho does not himself
seem at all confident of victory , although in
Berlin and Dresden ho still has adherents.
Desertions elsewhere are serious. One
of the most notable Is that of Dr. Otto
Boekel , an anti-Semitic member of Casscl ,
who , in his organ , the Ueiehshorols , attacks
Ahlwardt furiously. I need scarcely ad.I
that the Semites are delighted with this in-

April 1. [ By Mexican Cable to the Now
York Herald Special to THE lien ] Com
ment is being maUe upon the long visit to
Chili of a leading olllcer of the Brazilian
army. He is hero ostensibly studying the
Chilian army tactics , but the cordtaliry with
which ho has been received and the ease
with which ho gains information has led to
the belief that his real mission is to sound
the government on the subject of forming an
alliance between Brazil and Chill in the
event the former becomes involved in a war
with Argentina.
A war with Argentina is not improbable
and is not far off , judging from the insolent
attitude which the government of that re
public has assumed toward Brazil. She has
given aid to the revolutionists of Hio Grande
do Sul and is imposing needless quarantine
restrictions against Brazil. These and other
acts calculated to inflame the citizens of the
two republics have been without result. Tlio
war feeling in both countries is pronounced.
I have been told that the Brazilian govern
ment is negotiating with the Araistrongs for
the construction of war ships of a typo simi
lar to the cruiser Ninth of July , which is
being ouilt for Argentina. Orders have also
been made that great haste bo exerted in
shipping the Maurcr rillcs , for which Brazil
recently made contracts.

Icly celebrated on Tuesday , so as not to
lash with the religious festivities of Holy

Tains and quite as many letters of congratu-
atlons for the prince arrived during the day ,
wnilc every train brought crowds of people.
There was also a continuous How of baskets
llled with flowers and presents. To the
great disappointment of tlio crowds of visi
tors the outer gates were kept closed , and
were even covered with wooden shutters , so
that not a glimpse of what was going on in
side the red brick walls that surround the
louse could be seen.
Mxaetly at noon the prince , wearing the
.iniform of a colonel of the guards , accom
panied by Count Herbert and Count William ,

posed of local llrcmon and members of the

thousand rushed at him with every token of

fairly rang with the cheers of the crowd.

Hnni.iN. April 1. Today is the 78th anni
versary of the birth of Prince Bismarck and
a number of the Itorlin newspapers are
talcing advantage of the occasion to publish
congratulatory articles. The National Zei-
tung says that the widest circles of the Gor
man people remember with gratitude and
reverence- the founder of the empire and
they all unite In the wish that ho bo long
preserved to the nation.
Among the many presents received by the
great statesman was a splendid album sent
by a number of Germans in Central Amer
ica. This album contains 100 photographs
of the beautiful scenery of the little Central
American republic.
The Hismarek fountain in the market
place in Jena , in Saxo-Welmer-Fiseuach ,
was inaugurated today.
The fountain is on tlio spot where Prince
Bismarck delivered his famous oration last
summer. A great concert in honor of the
day was to have been hold today , nut it lias
uecn postponed until Thursday next , as has
also a largo torchlight procession that was
lixed for tonight. The postponement of
these two events was rendered necessary by
the fact that under the Hrandenburg Sab
bath regulations such festivities are forbid
den during Passion week.
Consulted on the Army Hill.
On Wednesday Chancellor von Caprivi had
a conference with the Avar minister In
Saxony in regard to the army bill , and on
Thursday the war minister and the chan
cellor had another conference , but the result
of their deliberations is not known.
Dr. von Ilennigo , the national liberal
leader , has resumed his negotiations aiming
to get the government to accept , In a moJi-
licd form , the proK | > sils : ho Iris already made
relative to the bill in the Heichstag. Thesa
simultaneous movements induce the bcliof
in political circles that the dissolution of the
Heichstag will yet bo avoido.l. Tim bill will
not again appear in the H'-iehstag until the
return of lOmperor William from Italy ,
whither he proceeds to take part In the cole-
bnjtion of King Humbert's silver woJding.
Ho will probably return May .
During tbu short interval of the ICastcr re
cess already passed both the government
and the party leaders have moro keenly re
alized the grave- eventuality arising from too
struggle which may Imperil some of the fun
damental ins.itutions of the empire. Thu
opirositior. organs instoidnf breathing dally
dcllanco against the government now admit. .
that a compromlsa Is possible , while Chan
cellor Oaprlvi's organs confers that the mia-
Isters view the prospsat of the dissolution of
the Hciehstug with great reluctance.
At thu 1'rit'o uT I'oieo.
The North German Gazette , thoivjh do-
flaring the reports untrue that Dr. von
Bennlgu's suggestions may yet bo approved ,
says that the government fully reeognhaa
the dangers of the dissolution. It adds tint

The Bocrten.oltunjj affirms , upon what il
claims to be high authority , that If the army
bill is finally rejected by the Uelchstae Em
pcror William will assent to the chancellor's
replacing the measurehy moJeratc pro

ter party continuing to oppose these latter
proixjsals will the Reichstag bo dissolved.
Whether this bo true or not It Is certain that
n spirit of compromise prevails every whero.
always excepting the-socialist cliques.
Lack of I'olltlral Activity.
If the party leaders are thoroughly con
vinced that the Hoiojistag Is within a month
of dissolution , their 'disregard of organized
action in the electoral Held Is unaccountable.
While much individual activity Is apparent
In meetings in the various constituencies ,

cialists , who have decided to present candi
dates in all the electoral districts , endeavor
ing thus to obtain such a grand total as will
impress the public with tlnlr

manifesto is the usual vindication of the dy
nastic rights of the house of Hanover.

The conservatives have definitely thrown

ibaler , but Irrepressible as ever ho por-
nides the country , ventilating his scandals
ivith his accustomed zest. At Stettin at a
conference on German thought in conlllct
, vith Jewish thought , Ahlwardt developed
, o the satisfaction of his audience the thesis
that all the moral and social evils nowaflllet-
ig Germany ros3 from the Jews. Ho con-
luded his address by declaring that as soon
us the Heichstag met ho would produce
iroofs of corruption under the Hisnrirck
egimo and since , Bismarck held oftico. A
somewhat similar conference that it was
iroposed to hold in Dresden has boon for-
: > lddon by the police. Another meeting
which is expected to bo a monster ono has
been convened in Berlin. The organizers of
this meeting say that Ahlwardt is now wait-
ng for the Heichstag to reassemble to pro-
: luco his documents proving that the govern
ment under the control of Hebrew financiers
misapplied public funds. The organizers
liavo had the audacity to invite Ilerr Miguel ,
Prussl'in minister of finance , against whom
Milwardt has speclflcal'y ' directed his at
tack , to reply to Ahhvardt.
ICmperor William has advised the govcrn-
nent to consider the exceptional measures

It is understood , however , that a majority
of tlio ministers are unwilling to interfere
in the matter as his repression might con

a martyr to his convictions. It is hoped that
Ahlwardtism will fizzle out if it is left to ex
pend itself in unproved and unnoticed asser

of vanishing. Ahlwardu's photographs or

Cable Special to Tin : Bnc.J The cabinet
crisis , so long expected , came on Friday. By
a singular chance the ministry was over-
brown by a vote of the extreme left , which
las always supported it , but Clemenceau be
loved the ministerial majority so well as
sured that he desired to make a manifesta
tion of Independence in order to respond to
the current rumor that ho would be a gov
ernment candidate at the next elections.
J'ho result of this maneuver was the
nvoluntary fall of the ministry. The posi
tion of the cabinet had become untenable.
Nobody thinks of doubting tlio honesty of
the fallen ministers. Taken individually
they were honest men , but had given proof
of a notorious incompotcncy during their
term of office. They tried to "run with the
laro and hunt with the hounds" at a time
when an enercetic initiative was necessary.

exaggerate. Brandes , the correspondent of
the Berliner Tageblatt , was expelled be
cause for ton years ho has insulted Franco ,
and because the paper ho represented stated
that Carnot's son had received Panama
money. Brandes lias stated in the Tage
blatt that stones were thrown at him and
his family when he loft Paris , and that the
populace manifested sentiments of hostility
to Germany.
Tlio whole of this story is false , as is
proved by the inquiry made by the police
and the cabinet , yet the Nerd Djutscho All-
gemeine publishedna furious article against
France , accusing her of being a danger to
the peace of Europe.
Franco Will Ke-innln Culm ,
At first the article produced a certain sen
sation , but it was soon calmed when people
reflected that it was written for the purpose
of facilitating the passage of the military
bill. France desires peace , and nothing will
induce her to depart from tier calm attitude.
'J'ho French papers will not oven reply to the
attacks of the German press.
