DHUL.IN , Auc. 25. If credence can be
lvcn to popular report the position of Ur.
Johannes .Mlquel , the Prussian minister of
finance. Is shaken In consequence of the
differences of opinion which have arisen be
tween him and Chancellor Von Caprlvl , and
which have resulted in mutual acrimonious
attacks In the Eeml-ofllclal Journals during
Emperor William's absence from Dcrlln.
Shortly after his return to the capital , the
emperor determined to put an end to this
open animosity and It Is now declared upon
good authority that ho Intends to lurKonally
mediate the dispute which threatens to have
a disturbing effect upon the government
policy. As Is knonti , Emperor William Is not
so enamored of Dr. Mlquel's financial plans
now as he previously was , and It is gent rally
believed If his majesty fails In his efforts
to bring about a reconciliation between the
minister of finance and the chancellor , the
former will la\o to go. In the event ot the
retirement of Dr. Mlmiel other changes In the
cabinet ore ttpokcti of , the most significant

of Count Von Bolicstroni as a concession to
the centrists , whose long expressed desire for
representation In the cabinet Emperor Wil

CARRIAGE FOR I'tlR ROYAL BABY.
It tran&plres the emperor took with him
to England on board the imperial yacht a
gift for hlu newly born cousin , the son ot
the duke of York. The gift was In the
shape ot an exquisite little carriage in
which the royal Infant Is to take his air
ings. The vehicle Is In the form of a
shell , colored with pale , prismatic shades ,
contracting with th : pale blue velvet used
to line the shade. The latter Is furnished
with n beautiful coverlet of crimson velvet
worked with the arms of the Ouelph and
Hohenzollcrn families. Ths baby carrfage
was sent to the White lodge nt Richmond ,
from which place tlio delighted mother sent
her hearty thanks to the emperor.
A small but noteworthy action of Em
peror William has caused a great deal of
satisfaction In the army , and has testified
to the genuineness of his expressions of
disapproval ot the petty tyranny ot certain
officers of the army to mn of lower rank ,
but of superior class. It has been a well
known fact that schoolmasters especially
were tubjcctcd to humiliating [ treatment
when called out among the reserve for
periodical training. An aggravated case of
Insult and Ill-treatment of a school teacher
has Just resulted In the Imprisonment of
the officer guilty of the otTens ; . The lat-
ter's sentence was submitted to the em
peror for confirmation , and his majesty , In
BO doing , wrote on the document a marginal
note , saying : "I did not believe It possible
I had such an ungcntlemanly officer In rny
The note at the emperor Is looked- upon
as tantamount to cashiering the odlcer ,
whose name was forthwith struck off the
army list. This will undoubtedly ajrvo as
on cffcctlvo warning to similarly disposed
otllcers against brutal disregard of the feel
ings of the men In their charge.
The statement has boui published that
an English company had bought the lease
of the land necessary In the Nordsnham
harbor wltlj the view
of establishing a new
BtcaniRhlp line from there to New York.
Tlio Associated press representative made
Inquiries upon this subject and obtained a
declaration from the Oldenburg administra
tion and the Hamburg-American line that ,
no treaty had been concluded for such a
line , and it is concluded no propoiials haO
been received to that effect.

CHICAGO , Aug. 25. Desperadoes Will
Lake and H. F. Gorman , who shot and mor
tally wounded Patrick Owen ot the Chicago ,
Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad nt Decrsfleld
last night and a few hours later shot and
probably mortally wounded Olllcer Mcdrath
at Mayfalr , were surrounded and captured
by police In the Ulk Grove woods , near the
Desplalnes river , at noon today. Their cap
ture was only effected after a six hours'
chase and the exchange ot fully 100 shots.
The desperadoes fought oft the bluecoats and
excited civilian participators in the gamut
until their ammunition was exhausted , and
then , unable longer to reply to the fire that
was poured In upon their retreat , the men
sought safety in flight. Bullets from the
officers' revolvers brought the men to earth ,
and when the police apprehended their game
the men were- weak from loss of blood.
Officers Mulaney , Flnnlgan , Hayes , Malsley
and Lawson , who had been among the first
posse to start out after the fleeing despera
does , were the officers who forced the sur
render ot the bandits. As soon a& 'tho
wounded men were taken In charge by the
police a new danger arose. The Infuriated
citizens , who had learned of the wanton
minder ot ono officer and the fatal shooting
of another by the desperadoes , demanded
that the wounded men be Immediately de
prived of their lives. The officers were
forced to draw their revolvers to save the
very men Into whom a. few moments before
they had poured lead. The crowds made
several desperate attempts to get the "bandits
from the hands of the police , but each time
they were repulsed without bloodshed. Police
Inspector Schack took charge df the pris
oners and started , at once for the West Chicago
cage avenue station'with them.
At id o'clock last night a north
bound freight train on the Chl-
cas ? , Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad was.
held up by two masked men at Deerflcld ,
a small station Jut > t north of the line be
tween Cook and Lake counties. One of the
detectives cf the road , a Chicago man named
Owens , who was riding on the train , was
ttiot and killed , and the watch of Con
ductor Larseen , who was In charge of the
train , was taken from him. This was the
entire amount ot the plunder secured. The
train had stopped to take water , and within
thirty seconds after It had come to a stand
still the two masked men climbed Into the
caboose and ordered the trainmen to throw
up their hands. They obeyed. The rob
bers had Just taken the conductor's watch
from htm when the detective entered and
showed fight. He was shot and Instantly
killed by one of the bandits , botlTTif whom
then disappeared in the darkness.
HAPPENED IN CITY LIMITS.
Trainmen who passed through Des Plalnes
this morning declared that they were In
formed at that village that tno city police
had besn shot by three bandits. Another re
port was that the train robbers , after leav
ing Dccrfleld , cut across the country to May
fair , which Is within the city limits of Chi
cngo. The depot at Mayfalr Is on Holcomb
avenue. Sitting at the depot was a Chicago
& Northwestern railroad policeman named
Patrick McGrath , who had been apprised of
the deed of violence ) at Desrfleld. Ho was on"
the lookout for any suspicious characters.
McGrath noticed some men , three he thinks ,
on a flat car which was attached to u south
bound train , and shouted to them to get off.
He thought the men were suspicious looking
characters , and that they might have had
something to do with the Deerfleld robbery.
When the men were ordered to leave the
train they answered with revolvers. Mc
Grath fell to the platform with three shots
In his body. On ; bullet struck the man In
the left arm , ono entering his body , and a
third struck him near his heart , but was di
verted by a penholder , which the officer had
In his pocket. This probably saved htm
from Instant death.
After this bit ot bloody work the bandits
hastined out Holcomb avenue to Lawrence
avenue. On the way they met a farmer Ir
a wagon on the way to the city. It was but
a moment's work to throw him out and take
possession of his vehicle. With horses to
draw them the thieves mad : better time , and
they were soon on their way through Law-
rcnco avenue to Milwaukee avenue.
By this time the northern part of Otnk
county was in a turmoil. Boys and men on
ponies and horses hastily saddled were in
the chase after the desperadoes Out on
Milwaukee avenue galloped the robbers In the
wagon , while behind them , at a respectful
distance , clattered the horses ot the pur
suers. Behind these again , came a patrol
wagon at full speed In which wore four
policemen. The pursued men kept out on May-
nard road , when the > took to Orchard Plaoo
wo.da on the Des I'Jalnes river , south ot
the Hlgglns road.
Thu story went that the pursued men In
the stolen farmer's wagon had been closely
pressed by a patrol w gen load of pcllcemen
between Jefferson and Norwood park on
the Mayfalr road. Leaping from the wagon
the three men leak refuge under a bridge ,
and when the officers dashed up and began
to pile out of the patrol wagjn the pursued
men turned loose their revolvers and tAut
two of the officers. In the confusion which
resulted after the first fire the men escaped ,
to the woods , where they were soon sur
rounded 'by police. Messengers were dis
patched to Jefferson for physicians , and they
brought the news ot the shoot'ng to that
A special tnln bearing a large number
of policemen and detectives wis sent out at
0:35 : tu Des Plalnes. The officers were
armed with Winchesters and carried orders
to shoot on sight.
The desperadoes were finally captured In
the woods In 131k Grove township about noon
by five Chicago policemen. The men were
surrounded , but fought desperately , firing as
often as their revolvers could be loaded.
After ' "Uv 100 shots had been fired the men
bolh fell , seriously but ( t ) l not thought
tatilly Injured , They , gayy\tiielr names as
Will Lnko and W. F > G.oAqn ] , and wtre
brought to Chicago \\eVeTlockod up In a
West side pol ce station.
WANTED TO LYNPU THEM.
The robbers were captured by Officers
Mulligan , Flnnegan , Molaley , Laweon and
Hayes. The crowd which had gathered
wanted to lynch the men , but the police held
the mob back with dravjfi revolvers.
Northwestern railroad officials received
word during the morning that the fleeing
bandits had shot and kllUd two special
policemen , who attempted to Intercept their
flight near Mayfalr. The Information Indi
cated that the desperadoes , after their early
holdup , boarded an Inbound train at Deer-
field. Holding up the conductor they robbed
him of all the money he had and then pull
ing the bell rope , Jumped from tha train near
Mayfalr. Starting for tlio woods they were
chased by two special policemen , Plunk and
Yunt , and openln fir ? both officers fell
mortally wounded. The robbsrs then con
tinued their night nnd .after an exciting
time reached Iho woods In safety.
Three miles from where the farmer , who
nas named Eggerslen , was hclu up his team
and wngon were found. The wagon had
broken down and had been abandoned by the
desperadoes. Both of the horses were com
pletely exhausted. The ofllcrs traced the
fugitives to a cornfield , through.-which they
ran , nnd a score ot policeman took up the
trail. When news of the. shooting nnd rob
bery reached Kvnnston Chief of Police
Carney was at once on the alert fcr suspicious
characters. His officers found two men
lounging about the water ? towcr In North
Evnnston and ho at once Idcked them up ,
telegraphing the railway people and Chicago
police. ' .
Fred Marshall , night operator at Mayfalr ,
told his version ot the bandits' reign of ter
ror at Mayfalr and the sh'podng of Special
Officer McGrath today. "We had received
Instructions , " said Marshall , "from the chief
train dispatcher to lobk oiiOfor the men who
murdered Pat On ens , the Chicago , Milwaukee
& St. Paul officer at Dsarflel'd , a few miles
north. It was about 5':20 ' : o'clock this mornIng -
Ing when Conductor -Simmons. Jumped from
the Chicago , Milwaukee & St. Paul freight
as It came to a stop at the Mayfalr crossing.
Simmons told me that he , thought ho had
the men who killed Owens In a car hear the
end of the train. I tel McGrath , who liad
his uniform on , to stay putjof sight as much
as possible. ,
"When I reached the coat car In which tl.e
men were hiding I thought-I recognized them
from descriptions as thp ( ones wanted for
Owens' murder. I calledfXmt to McGrath :
'All right , come on. ' IVcOratli came and
started to climb upon the car , drawing his
gun as he did so. Ina .flash one ot the
bandits , the largest and most burly fellow ,
drew a gun so large that ho. had to use both
hands to operate It. He fired point blank at
McGrath , who fell badly wounded at the first
fireI. . , thought It best to' run away , as I
had no gun. The murderous fellow took aim
again at the officer as McGrath was regaining
his feet.and . another bull t crashed Into his.
body. A third kbuAet was fired Into McGrath
and then the companion , of the''murderous
thug drew two big rcvoj.verjs , which he nour
ished , and yelling llljq demons. , the .pale. .
Jumped off the opposlteTfsfaoT ! t1 e tralri'aiidr'
ran toward Milwaukee , a.venue , where they
met the farrgerxwhose wa'goji ' theyl ook to
mak/jrthelr escape. " '
i-Superintendent- ot the St. Paul rail
road has received an official report on the
jobbery and murder on one ol the company's
freight trains at Deerfjeld. ' '
-'I think , " said Mr , Barr , "that Detective
Oweps must have trlsd. to arrest the man
when he was shot. There Is nothing btrange
about the fact that the Hetcctlvewas on
the train. Our special agents frequently
go out on freight trains to look for thieves.
Conductor Sargent , who was relieved of his
watch by the bandits , , took his train through
"When the northbound freight on the
Chicago , Milwaukee & St. Paul road reached
Deerfleld two men mounted the steps of the
caboose. The train stopsjat this -station ,
which Is Just over the Cook county line In
Lake county , for water. "Tie brakemen were
well toward the engine , which nas In charge
of Engineer Prltchard , and only the con
ductor. Sargent and the , road detective , Pat
rick Owens , were In1 ths , caboose. It was
10:20 : o'clock. The masked men entered the
door and covered the conductor and detec
tive with their revolvers : The detective
sprung for his rifle , bit before he could
reach It one of the robbers. Bliot him through
the breast. The 'conductor tnrew up his
hands and the robbers who' had done the
shooting went through lib pockets , taking
Ills watch and a Email i amount of money.
Afterwards he searched the detective's
clothes for valuables , and.'left the train Just
before the brakemen , ' who had heard the
shot , came running back. No trace could be
found of the bandits , .and the body was
turned over to the Lake Bounty authorities.
WAS A GENUINE MAN HUNT.
The wanton murder of Owens and brutal
shooting ot McGrath by these dlbclples of
Jesse James stirred , up the' entire community
from Deerfield to the cltjf hall , and It was
not long after the report that McQ.rath had
been shot at Mayfalr cam'e In that the un
usual scene of a genuine man hunt was
Special ofllcers In tlm employ of the rail

The citizens In the "
neighborhood of "Hlg
glns woods , " near DCS Planes , piloted bands
of armed men across , jlu } . country , and de
termined officers , ftltjh country men for

The arrest was nrecedjedj by a veritable

never have been taken alive bad it not been
that their nupply pf nmmnnUkn was short.
As their stock of cartridges dwindled away
the desperadoes shot more Carefully and less
frequently , but the officers kept themselves
well covered until at last the men's bullets
were exhausted. T ie ofllotr * called upon

OLD ORCHARD , Me. , Aug. 23. Ex-
Speaker Thomas B , Hoed opened the republi
can campaign In this state here this after
noon with a speech which called forth the
Jieartlest applause from the thousands pres
Mr. Reed , In part , spoke as follows : "In
saying the democratic party has shown Itself
Incapable of running the country In a man
ner satisfactory not only to the majority of
the people , hut to a largo and respectable
mlnprlty which helps to compose It , I am
not Indulging In any language of partisan
ship , but In ( lie language of truth , known
and vJBlblo to all who hear me today. The
northern democratic party Is In many re
spects like the republican party , composed of
business pence and business ability. The
difficulty with the democratic party today ,
as It has been In all past time , Is the Tact
Its great majority resides In the south. The
southern men are men of Intellectual power ,
men of Intelligence and learning. The dlfll-
culty with them Is the kind of learning
which arises from a thorough knowledge of
business as It Is carried on In the north Is
entirely lacking. While the southern man
has every ? portunlty to read In books of
the prosperity which has come to the north ,
ho 'has no conception of It such as those
who have lived In It. lie Is devoted to the
theories of a bygone day. His mind Is fixed
upon the principles which were essential to
the prosperity of his part of the country In
the days before the war.
BUSINESS DIGTATBD IT.
'It would bo a great mistake for the people
ple of the United States to suppose the ac
tion of the senate , so much blamed by the
democratic party and so much attacked by
the people of the country In general , -was to
be deomcd entirely the result of personal
feeling. The truth Is the 'action of the con-
mjrvatjve senators on many subjects Is the
result * not of their .Individual opinions , but
thif'fesuH of the business InlereBt,3 vhlcu [
surround them. A senator from the state
of l ow1 Jersey- could not ba reckless ivllh

ator from Arkansas , and even n Kennlor
from Arkansas like Mr. Jones , who has de
voted patience nnd intelligence to the tariff
questlcn , although hot surrounded by busi
ness Interesis which ccntrol him , was Ir
resistibly borne In the direction of the sen
ate bill as It finally passed that body. What
ever may hove been done by the people at
present In possesslcn of the government ,
everybody will admit It has been done out
of place , ted in such a way as to be of the
least possible service to the country. The
repeal of the silver purchasing clause of
the Sherman act might possibly have been
of some service to the country had it been
done promptly and at cncc. Hut the delay
In the senate , the long and protncted debate
and the continuous opposition , the realiza
tion on the part of the country that the
senate did not willingly accede to the plan ,
acted to prevent any good which the friends
of the measure were dlspsed to claim
"After the repeal of the silver purchasing
clause had uncovered the real situation of
the country it then became the duty of con
gress , even from , a democratic point of view ,
to pass such n tariff bill as would give to us
a reasonable degree of assurance that the
basis there established would bo one that
would be permanent for a sufficient period
of time , a period at least EO long as the vic
torious party was to be In power. Instead of
realizing the first great principle of states
manship that whatever Is to be done in
the world has got to bo done In accordance
with the wishes of the people who live In It ,
the gentlemen In charge of the tariff bill In
the house of representatives , undertook to
lenore the varied Interests of the country
and to mould a tariff bill not In the Interest
of the nation , not In accordance with the
wishes of the people , but In accordance with
certain theories which they thought might
possibly fit their dream of ultimate free trade.
WILSON DILL , WAS DOOMED.
"Such a bill , framed In such a manner , was
doomed from the moment of Its Inception. It
was not adapted to this country ; It was not
adapted to I In Interests. It was not adapted
In any way to the situation In which the
country then found itself.
"Commtnclng upon a % ague theory tint It
was necessary to coddle certain manufactures
at the expense of ethers , It violated the first
principles of the democratic platform.
Hence , the bill which Mr , Wilson Introduced ,
although claiming to fulfill the democratic
platform , was yd a protectionist bill to a
"It has sometimes been usked pf u re
publicans : 'Why , If It was a protoctlonlsl
bill , were you opposed to ItT Why should
you oppose * a bill which recognized the prin
ciples you ndvocato ? ' It dos not follow
because a bill recognizes the principle ol
protection or because It Is subject lo that
reproach when you arc speaking cf It to
democrats wlio have rfpudlatcd protection
In their platform , that therefore It was a
proper and sultab'o protection bill.
"Protection as a method of preserving
the American market to the American people
ple Is something which IK defensible the
protection In spots ; protection lirro.i
protection there , Is a protection which Is
justly1' open to the charges which are falsely
made against the true protection.
"When Mr. Wilton's bill , which was
framed more with reference to the
of New England and of those manufacturers
of a . . 'certain ' description who have been
dallying with d.mocrncy , reached the senate
It there met the varied Interests cf the
country In a more fail and complete fashion
and meeting thus in thU body It received
nrcjt modifications. Tlitr upon it was
brour'.l ' ti the house , amended by CO1) ) am
in > ire amendments and changed lit Its char
n > t r and Its deilgrr. so that Its orlgloa

WAS A QUE15R fcjONFEREXCE.
"For the first time in the history of the
country tlio conference commltteo ne\er met
'or the transaction of Its legitimate business.
The republican members of the committee
of conference were excluded from all dis
cussion and consideration of the * question.
What discussions took place among the people
ple representing the democratic party I have
no means of knowing. Everybody knows
this bill , which , according to the democratic
view , contained party perfidy and party dis
honor , was passed by the house , and that
they violated every rule of parliamentary law
n order to enable them to pass It. Now
v.lml Is that blllJ I am sorry to say that ,
although I was on tlio committee of con
ference , I was deprived of an opportunity to
examine the Items and to discuss the rea
sons for them. That bill must be tested like
any other bill by the test of time nnd ex
perience. Those who know test about It
believe the results to this country will be
disastrous , but , fortunately , not as disastrous
as the origLnul bill to t\hlch Mr. Wilson's
name was attached. But there is only one
thing from 'which v\e must free our minds ,
and that Is the Idea that this bill , however
bad It may be , Is the basis up > n which
the business of the country may adjust itself
upon a lowtr piano of wages with safety ,
and proceed with whatever U loft to Us pf
the Industries of the country. Yliat Idea \v'o
must' absolntcly'frflnTOnrhilTnds : 'The
tact is , the bill la not a. finality. Let it bo
understood , I do not say this under my cvn
authority , I desire to quote the opinions of
the democratic leaders themselves upon that ,
Mr. Reed then quoted from the remarks
of Mr.- Wilson In the house and Mr. Mills In
the senate , to show that the tariff bill 'just
passed Is one step In the march toward free
trade. Mr. Reed , continuing , said : "How
many mistakes and blunders there may bo
In the tariff bill as It has finally reached
the president and not yet discovered can only
be conjectured. I liavo not permitted myj-elf
to comment upon the scandalous , stories or
oven visible scandal connected with the
passage of the tax upon sugar. But It Is
due to the country that tlio aspects of It
which are commented upon should be care
fully and fairly dealt with.
STORY OF THE SUGAR TARIFF.
"The house of representatives saw fit tenet
not only abolish the ; ugar bounty , but also
to take oft the duty connected with the
sugar tariff. When the bill arrived In the
senate It was engaged In the task of passing
a bill which diminished the revenues $75-
000,000. It then became necessary In the
opinion of all Intelligent people to 'put a tax
upon sugar If this bill was to be persisted In.
Thereupon a tax was proposed upon sugar
of tO per cent , with si differential of one-
ejghth for the sugar refiners , and still
another differential to protect them
against the export countries which
paid an export premium. This
WE8 the bill which passed the houSc. An
ticipating , In fact , knowing , that the bill would
be unpopular In every way they endeavored
to relieve themselves from the burden of
the vote which they had Just gven nnd
therefore availed themselves of the extra
ordinary powers which resided In the house ,
and by a course of rctlon entirely unpre
cedented they provided that a bill mlsht
bo Introduced In the house giving free sugar ,
which bill could not bo amended , should not
bo debated over halt an hour , and might
then bo paE&ed , and accordingly this wad
done. Of course this waa a pure farce.
Everybody knew It , no matter how they
votpd upon ttiq subject. The senate voted to
put on the bill an amendment authorizing
the continuance cf the bounty which had
already been granted Under the McKlnley
net and which v.-ns promised to the people
of the country for a period of ten yc-Jrs.
This tlio democrats refused to adopt , fo their
'popgun bill' and all the rot of the 'pop
gun' bills tlept the sleep In which they
knew they would rest. Tlin cnly valid action
which the house performed with regard lethe
the trust has liesn to furnish them with al
most Infinite wealth , for Mr. Wilson himself ,
on the door , ga\e the figures which Bhowcd
tint In all probability thp bill for which he
was then voting and for which he was de
manding voice , uiul which ho finally carried ,
gave ts the Sugar trust $10,000,000 th R year ,
outside of the protection to refining.
"I desire lo point out to you the fact that
at a tlmo when the revenues of Hie country
are decreasing , when It has been already
necessary to put out $50,000,000 of Interest
bearing bonds , the cxpcndl'mc * of the llret
scss'on of the KiUy-thlid congrfe&s , with both
homes under democratic rule , liavo exceeded
the expenditures of ( lie first Bexsloa o [ tlm
