LONDON. Oct. 13. ( New York World Ca
blegram Special. ) During tlio parliamen
tary recess little of home politics la dis
cussed In the papers , but It la known In
Inner circles that there. . Is a most threaten
ing condition of affairs In tlio liberal party ,
which will lead to the overthrow of the Hose-
bcry government at the opening of next
session unless the prime minister In the
meanvhllo takes the lead In an open , de
termined nnd sincere movement to abolish
the veto power of the Jlouso of Lords. He
must do this , Inact ' , In his coming speech
st Bradford on the 27th. Falling an unequivo
cal pronunclamento from him of the gov
ernment's Intention to promptly Introduce
nn uncompromising measure to this effect ,
JUstln McCarthy , speaking for the seventy-
two Irish votes under his leadership , will
call a meotlnR of the- party , which will de
termine to vote against the government In
the first division tr.'uen after Parliament con-
5Ir. McCarthy Is In London , and , while de.
dining to say this publicly , for obvious rea
sons , makes no secret of hTs purpose as
above stated. Slnco the English radicals
under Labouchcro and Samuel Storey and
numbering nearly 100 votes are of the sama
mind , the government : would be overwhelm
ingly defeated. 'This union with the English
radicals would frco Irish members from the
chargeof deserting the liberal party.
nosEiiniiY MUST JOIN on FALL.
The defiant rejection by the Lords of the
homo rule bill and of the evicted tenants bill
and the titter Impossibility of pccurlng a
liberal majority In that body 'for any measur
able time to come- are facts now recognized
as preventing the passage of any Irish ic-
forin measure whatever , so long as the Lords
remain a co-ordlnato legislative body. The
prime minister , therefore , will bo expected
to Bay at ! Bradford that ho means to Intro
duce a measure framed on the resolution
adopted at the Leeds conference of the lib
eral caucus last August , for the practical
abolition of the veto , or he v.111 be put out of
office anil an appeal to the country forced
on thin Issue. .
This Is the exact condition of affairs to
day , but It Is to be added that Lord Kose-
hcry Is expected to innlic this statement at
Bradford and Mr. McCartny and the radical
leaders have such assurances of It that they
now keep silent so far as a public state
ment of their Intentions Is concerned. What
ever may bo llosebery's personal feeling or
official belief as to the wisdom of this move
ment Just at this Juncture , or the prospect of
a successful Issue to It within the life of
MH parliament , or this generation , he must
certainly lead In It now , sign his ofilce with
in two months to another lenler , or see It
precipitated upon the country by a disgrace
ful defeat of his administration at the first
It Is , moreover , certain that Mr. McCarthy
nnd his followers must press this action on
the liberal government or lose their follow-
InK at home.
HAS BEEN LONG GROWING.
This crisis In the history of the liberal
party lias been slowly forming for months ,
but It has not reached a climax. Michael
Davltt , who has recently written to New
York , Intimating that this Is the Intention
of the party , leaves shortly on a lecturing
tour In Australia. He has been under n long
standing promise , to visit Australia , but has
hitherto been prevented by political affairs
In Ireland. In the present case , also , strong
pressure Is being brought to bear to Induce
him to postpone his tour , as he Is one of
the most powerful Influences In Ireland
against dissension , but ho cannot afford to
abandon the project , both because o'l again
disappointing Ills Australian admirers , who
have repeatedly Invited him , nnd because
the lectures promise * to bo a great financial
success , and he la a poor man with a grow
ing family. Ho won't return to Ireland until
the end of the summer , and If the
Kcneral election occurs during hla absence
hp Is certain to bo again sent to Parliament , ,
though strongly opposed to re-entering the
JOHN BURNS COMING TO DENVER.
John Burns has been deputed to attend
the annual confcrenco of the Federation of
Labor at Denver In December as the dele-
cat a of the parliamentary committee of the
British Trades congress. Ho Is undoubtedly
the ablest and most practical of English
labor leaders and Is now in handgrips with
the dominant section of the Independent labor
party , who accuse him of being merely a
iloclle follower of the liberal ministry. He
la the only liberal leader who has achieved
nny concession for workers , and this Is duo
to his adroit use of his parllar .itary Influ
ence solely. The Institution oi Ilio eight-
tour day In the AVar department shops , what
Kler Hnrtllo and others failed to secure by
threatening and hectoring , ho has acquired
by diplomatic methods , and consequently his '
rivals are Jec fi of his prestige. Ho nils
an Important place In Parliament as a man
who has shown ho can control strike mobs ,
.tvhlla also possessing : capacity for legislative
. work. When Uosebery was chairman of the
Ixmdon county council Burns consulted him
on such topics. He wss offered a position In
the Gladstone government , but refused It be

WASHINGTON , Oct. 13. The State de-
jiartment has not received any advices con
firmatory of the rumor coming from Shang
hai to the effect that China has sued for
peace , and the report meets with little cre
dence , being regarded as at least premature.
The United States has been Invited by the
quadruple alliance , composed of Great Britain ,
France , Germany and Russia , to Join In a
friendly Intervention In the war between
China nnd Japan. The Invitation will be
declined. The declination Is based on the
time-honored policy of this government to
avoid any entangling alllancoi with foreign
powers. Acknowledgment IB made or the
truth In what the Invitation has to say about
the desirability of the restoration of peace ,
etc. " , but In the polite language of diplomacy
It Is pointed out that this country has PO far
thriven very well attending to Its own busi

prosper by that policy It will not depart from

to answer the question , but stated , however ,
that he did not think other powers would
Interfere with the struggle.

UnrtLIN , Oct. 13. Quito a gala week lies
before Berlin folks and the rest of Germany.
The arrival ot King Alexander ot Servla ,
who Is due on Monday next , will be the slg-
nal fcr a number of court festivities and sev-
ral Imposing ! ceremonies , the chief of which
will be the dedication of the 132 flags des-
.Ined for the recently organized fourth bat- '
alllon ot each regiment of tnf.mtry. This
ceremony Is announced to take place on
Thursday next with great pomp In front
ot the monument of Frederick the Great , on
Unter den Linden. The presence , in this city
of the German mlni&ter to Delgrade , Baron
Von Waccke-Gotter , Indicates that King
Alexander's , ' visit Is connected with politics.
Every possible attention will be paid to htm ,
and among the entertainments organized In
his honor Is the hunting party at Wild park ,
at which the king will bo accorded the un
usual privilege of killing one of the few re
maining white stags which are to be found
In I the park. Emperor William , who Is enJoying -
Joying j the best of health , personally gave
orders for the various arrangements of the
coming week , and Is evidently most anxious
to ( Impress the Servian king with the splen
dor ot his reception.
Dr. Schwelnlnger terminated Ills visit to
Prlnco Bismarck at Varzln today , The Ham-
burglscho j correspondent publishes a semi
official communique , painting out that Germany -
many on no account will take part In any
Intervention In favor of any belllgerant In
terests. The Cologne Gazette confirms the
statement that Russia and France are work
ing hand In hand In this matter , and repeats
the assertion that they are also adverse to
Interference In the war. It is added that
Austria Is In a similar manner acting In
harmony with Germany , and , as it Is claimed
that the United States has not from the
first concealed her sympathy with Japan ,
Italy is the only power likely to comply
with the proposal of the earl of Klmberly
for an international Intervention.
The National Zeltung and other German
papers point out that German Interests In
the war are not Identical with England and'
GERMANY WILL NOT INTERFERE.
The Cologne Dispatch today publishes the
fpllowlng dispatch from Berlin : It Is con
firmed from various sources that Germany
has declined to take part In a Joint European
Intervention between China and Japan at the
present Juncture , and this subject , accord
ingly , la removed from the diplomatic pro
gram ot the powers.
The correspondent of the Associated press
has sounded a distinguished official upon
the subject , and has also made other In
quiries In Influential quarters , with the re
sult that he has found It to be the general
opinion that Japan , In the event of being
victorious , will not. make exorbitant demands
upon China , but will restrict herself to In
sisting upon the Independence of Corea , while
asking for protectorate rights for herself , as
well as a big war Indemnity. It IB probable
that Japan may demand the cession of the
Island of Formosa.
Significant , as indicating the intentions of ' '
Russia , Is the statement of the Berliner
Tageblatt's correspondent at St. Petersburg
that the Russian troops In the towns , vll-
lages and passess of the' Chinese frontier
have been greatly reinforced , and that large
quantities of provisions and' war material are
constantly arriving at those places. Largp
detachments of Cossacks first appeared , and
they were followed by Cossacks' artillery
and later by strong detachments of Infantry ,
bringing with them the component parts of
very spacloui barracks , -with portable heatIng -
Ing and baking stoves. In a word , every
thing , apparently , Is being prepared for a
forward movement It such a step Is decided
to be necessary.
From the statements published In regard
to yesterday's Prussian cabinet meeting , It (
appears that Count Eulenberg , president of
the cabinet , after the discussion ot proposed
repressive measures against anarchists ,
yielded In part respecting the anti-revolu
tionary measures which have been the bone
ot contention between himself and Chan
cellor von Caprlvl.
It also appears that the audience which the
latter had with the emperor led to a com-
promlso agreement , by which the legislation
to be proposed will not be ot an exceptional
character , but will aim at Increasing the
stringency of the existing laws and securing
their more effectual application. The Prus lgd
sian cabinet Is understood to have discussed ;
measures to this effect , which will be sub
mitted lo the Bundesrath , and also delib
erated upon similar measures , which will
bo Introduced In the Prussian diet.
At the general convention of the different
sections of the anti-Semites of Germany , held
at Eisenach , It was agreed to consolidate
under the name of the German social reform
parly , and , after a hot debate , the delegates
admitted the notorious Jew baiter , Alwardt ,
to their ranks. Together the anti-Semites
now claim to represent 1,250,000 votes ,
In view of Prlnco Bismarck's Inability to
receive a visit fromj 1,500 East Prussians , on
the ground ot 111 health , these admirers of
the ex-chancellor have decided to testify
their sympathy by a popular subscription In
the province , the proceeds ot which are to
bo presented to the prince upon his eightieth
birthday , April 1 , 1895. Prince Bismarck

Fire which broke out shortly before 10
o'clock last night partially ruined the upper
part of the Morse-Coe shoe factory , a flve-
story brick building at the southeast corner
of Twelfth and Howard streets , totally de
stroyed the contents of the fourth and fifth
floors , and caused much damage on lofter
floors by smoke and water.
The building has a frontage of more than
100 feet on Harney street and has a depth of
about 160 feet. A small portion of the upper
walls fell In.
The loss on building Is estimated nt from
$10,000 to $15,000. and on raw stock , manu
factured goods and machinery at from $83,000
to $90,000. On the two upper floors flnlshci
goods \\ero mainly stored , though there was

greater part of the machinery was on the
third floor spd whatever damage was caused

" ChTef'Oalllgan and"Assistant Chief Salte
made a great run down Farnam street 1

was only a few laps behind. As soon a

IT FAILED TO WORK.
When the big machine took position th
crowd cheered , and naturally expected to se
some good work done , but In this It was ills
appointed. The chemicals In the cylinder ;
of this ponderous machine refused to work
and the tower could not be raised. Tills
caused a short delay , , as four lines of hose
had been attached to the tower and the
. water turned on. An effort to raise the
I tower by hand was then made. This at
tsmpt was partially successful , but when the
full force of the four streams was turned on
the nozzle had hurtled and the tower was use
less. Chief Galllgan then had It hauled
away to save It from being damaged. DurIng -
. Ing all the time spent In handling the water
] tower the flames had spread rapidly and had
burst out of the fourth-story windows.
, Fourteen streams were playing on the fac
tory , but the water pressure was BO weak
that the streams could not reach above the
i third-story windows , Four streams , aldd
by the three engines struck and entered the
i fourth-story windows , About all the good
that the other streams -did was to keep the
While some of the firemen -were working
with the water tower others were engaged
In raising the ladder on the big aerial truck
nt the north end. Almost as soon as the
ladder was placed and before the men could
get to the top with a line of hose the flames
shot out nearly to the center of the street ,
and the Intense heat drove the firemen back
down the long ladder.
BURNED THEIR LADDER.
So fiercely did the fire burn that It was
with difficulty that the ladder was lowered
and hauled away to a place of safety. As
It was , the top of the ladder was badly
scorched and charred.
The east sldo of the building above the
third floor was mostly composed of big glass
windows , and through these the flames came
with great fierceness , breaking the glass and
scattering the pieces on the plpemen below.
Assistant Chief Barnes had charge of this
side ot the bulld'ng , and directed four streams
| on the flames , but the water fell short , and
falling on the walls below only served to
keep them cool. Great , black clouds ot smoke
poured forth on this elde , while from the
west side of the building great showers of
sparks arose and drifted away to the north
east. It was fortunate that a high wind was
not blowing else buildings In that vicinity
would have been in danger. As it was the
guests of the Mercer hotel , diagonally across
the Intersection , were greatly alarmed , and
watched the progress of the fire with uppre >
When the roof and top floor fell , the
sparks ascended to a considerable height , and
| as they fell on the crowd ot curious people
who lined the sidewalks and filled the adja '
cent streets the people fell back. This gave
the firemen more room to work and to get
away hi case of falling walla.
The police , under command ot Acting
Captain Blgwart , made a feeble attempt to
keep the crowd back , but no fire ropes were
strung. Mayor llemla and Commissioner
llartman came down and looked on.
GAINED VANTAGE GROUND.
A few minutes before 11 o'clock Chief Gal-
llgan and a number ot firemen eucceeded In
getting a line ot hose to the top ot the four-
story building , at the rear ot th burning
factory , occupied by the Western Newspaper -
! paper union. This line gave- the men a de
cided advantage , aa It enabled them to throw

The greatest danger at this tlmo was In the
east wall of the burning building. The lop
already leaned a foot from the perpendicular
and but for the substantial manner In which
the building was put up would have fallen.
A three-Inch crack had also appeared at the
east end of the north wall ; but the cast wall
Etlll stands. A few minutes after the line
to the roof of the Western Newspaper union
building had been Impressed Into service It
parted , but the damage was soon rep.tlied.
The damage that would have resulted from
the falling of the walls would have been the
destruction ot a frame dwelling house oc
cupying the ground between the factory and
the warehouse. The family occuyplng the
dwelling had removed all the furniture as
soon as possible after the fire was discovered.
It was an outside fight from start to finish
for Gnlllgan and his men. Everybody
worked hard , but the department was badly
handicapped by the lack of water pressure.
An effort was made to rnlso the aerial
truck In the center of Howard street and
from nn elevation shoot a stream of water
Into the fourth and fifth story windows.
This attempt proved n failure , as the stream
through a three-quarter-Inch nozzle hardly
reached the building.
BIGHTV PER CENT INSURANCE.
Mr. Charles A. Coe , vice president of the
company , was brought to the blaze by Fire
Reporter Heard. He said that the Morse-
Coe Shoe company WHS composed ot W. V.
Morse , president ; 0. J. Lewis of Itoston ,
E. E. Hastings and himself. He said that
small portions ot the stock were held by
some of the company's employes. The com-
The building was erected nt u cost of $50,000.
Something like $30,000 was expended In fix
tures and machinery. Mr. Coe figured the
total loss at $100,000 , on building and con
tents. Insurance on the buHdlns to the
amount of $35,000 Is carried and this will
more than cover the loss on the bulldlnc.
The block carried was Insured under the 80
per cent clause of the Fire Underwriters' as
Mr. Cne Is at a loss to account for the
origin of the fire. He cays that the factory
was shut down at C o'clock and as far as
he knew there was no light In the building
after that time. The company owns and
operates Its own lighting plant , av.d the
wiring was Inspected only two weeks ago by
ho city electrician and found to be all right
with the exception of a few minor defects.
Aa the fire was confined to the fourth and
fifth floors principally , It Is thought that the
loss may not amount to over $80,000 , as
nest of the machinery can be saved and the
lower walls are left nound. .
The management has of late been In the
hands of the vice president ,
It was Impossible last night to get a
statement of the Insurance In detail. Mr.
Hitchcock of Webster , Howard & Co , , re
ports the following Insurance in his agency
on tjie stock In the factory : Insurance Com
pany of Xnrtli America , $2,600 ; Liverpool and
London and ) Globe , $2,500 ; Hanover of New-
York , $1,500 ; St. Paul Flro and Marine ,
$1,000 ; total , $7,500.
SOMn FALLING OF DIHCKS.
About mldlnght a part of the southeast
corner of the top story fell , The firemen
were'constantly warned by their chiefsto
watch out for falling walls , and , consequently
quently , no ono was Injured. It was ex
pected that the northeast corner would bo
so weakened by the falling ot the roof-and
the fifth floor that It would fall , but the
firemen managed to get enough water on the
brick walls to hold tlicm. . Street car traffic
on the Walnut Hill , Council muffs , South
Omaha and Thirteenth street lines was do-
layed for about two hours.
By 2 o'clock all of the fire companies had
gone home except ono company which was
left to watch the place until morning. Chief
Galllgan decided to watt until daylight before
ho sent men Into the building to thoroughly
examine It. Several latldermcn were , however -
over , sent up to look for smouldering fire.
Most of the goods In the factory are re
moved as rapidly as finished to the com
pany's wholesale house , consequently the
stock destroyed consisted mostly of leather In
tbo process of manufacture. When the fac
tory closed last night there were 132 persons ,
on the pay roll. The portion of the block
burned will be rebuilt at once.

To the people ol this commonwealth : A
recent letter from nn Intelligent gentle
man living In a neighboring city asks , in ap
parent sincerity , "Why Is It that the business
men of Omaha , regardless of party , are com
bining to defeat the election of the populist
candidate for governor ? " The "business men"
of Omaha who take the position that v e , the
citizens of Nebraska , are not entitled to
have puio and honest government In this
stnto are largely the bankers and those un
fortunate business men that they can op
press , nnd the railroads nnd their pass hold
ers. These two Interests ar < ? not for honest
government , It Is they who breed anar
chists , they who , In combining against the
people to corrupt legislatures and elect dis
honest men to ofilce , prey upon the people ,
and , In the results they accomplish , visit
upon state and nation all the evils ot anarch
ism. It Is not an uncommon thing for these
bunkers to keep In their offices petitions or
addresses which they ask those who comate
to borrow their money , or to get extensions ,
to sign ; they have them In their banks now ;
In other words , they Insist that the unfor
tunate cuntomeM that they have In their
power shall put up their citizenship as col
lateral ! Tim banks and railroads must ba
taught that they are servants , and not mas-
tersi.tlmt * each must stick to Us legitimate
business and not spelt to usurp the functions
of the people. Last year this country was
plunged Into financial distress by the bank
ers ; while seeking to Interfere with law mak
ing they started n scare they artificially _
crcated a money stringency that ended In a
panic that , unexpectedly to them , nearly In- ft
volved all ot them In the ruin that they had * * '
planned for others. Thousands of their vic
tims met bankruptcy. Their constant aim Is
to make money scarce , and so to Increase the
power of their store to the hurt of the poor
and middle' classes. It Is tlmo the banks
kept to their tasks , or to take away from
them their powers nnd to turn them down.
They must not take the position that the
people of this slate cannot have honest gov

What about tlio railroads ? Go to the filt-
tlngs of our legislature , and what do you flndT
You find their lobby organized to corrupt.
Who stood behind Mosher and his guilty
crowd ? Who stood behind the corruption In
the penitentiary ring ? Who defends all the
public plunderers nnd thieves ? The railroad
ring. They are co-partners In corrupting the
public service. And banks trot In their
class. They did not dare to have Mosher
open his mouth ! He know too much ! Mosher ,
liable , as Indicted , to sentence tor an hundred
years , got oft with five ! He was "confined"
In our county Jail Instead ot being sent to
the penitentiary and such scandals aroseIn
that regard as were never before heard of In 1 |
connection with a convict Incarcerated in
prison ! The wrongs that these banks and i |
railroads have countenanced and encouraged
In consplrlng-agalnst the com moil weal In
Nebraska is a foul list. The true nnd lofty
citizenship of this commonwealth will not

The people are slow to anger and to move.
When public affairs- get HO intten that they

Nebraska , under railroad and bankers' rule ,
Is so rotten that It stinks. It Is tlmo to
move ! The banks and railroads raise the cry
to deceive us that It would hurt the credit
of the state to elect a pupullst. The credit
of the state ! The credit of a million people !
Who made these corporations the guardians
of the public credit ! Of our good name !
When rottenness and corruption stand for
purity and soundness , then will they ( land

wo elect an honest man governor It will ruin
the credit and fair name ot the state , and
that If we elect a dishonest man governor It
will preserve the credit and fair name of the

I believe that the civilization of Nebraska.
Is better than the civilization of Wall street.
Choose yo between the civilization of the
people and the civilization ol money , Ne-

have such and such measure ot honesty ; such
and such measure ot Justice ; such and such
measure uf refinement ; such and such sensa

true enough , to rule ourselves ? Shall we go
abroad to find another rule of honesty ta
guide us ; another tense of right to control

standard ? Shall we go to Wall street for Ha
ethics to corporations'and trusts to tell us
what are rules of right ? Verily , I believe
that the million and a quarter of people wh
live within our borders are able enough , honest
enough , Just enough , to make up our govern
ment ! Wo are entitled to honest government
In Nebraska , and we are entitled to rule our

which in all times past has been abed for
