mmLIN , March 23.-After a period or
comparative calm , a squall burst today over
tim sea ot German politics. The trouble
arose over the lueston whether the Helchs-
tag should congratulate Prince Dsmarck on
bls birthday , a prpsHlon whIch was Intro-
ilucd In the Helchstag during the afternoon.
Thd debate on this question has been anticipated -
patell , wih great eagerness , and when the
session opened there was a very large attendance -
tendance of members while the galleries
were crowded with politicians. dIplomats and
other prominent persons. The royal box was
fled wIth personage of high rank prominent -
nent among them being the grand duke of
Daden. Dc fore the order of the day was
taken up President yon Levlzow arose and
requested the house to formally aUthorizeS
S blm to congratulate Prince lsmarck on its
Count yon Ilonipesch-Tturlch , a prominent
member of the center party , amid loud Inter-
S ruptons from Various parts ot tim house
55 and cheers from his supporters , submitted ,
on behalf ot the centrists , a resolution disapproving -
approvIng or the proposal.
Dr. von Dennlgsen , In behalf or the na-
, tonal liberal party , warmly supported this
request ot the presldeAt or the Relchstag.
Then Richter , amid repeated protests , dc-
dared that the frlesslnnlge party was unable
to support the motion. In doIng so he re
marked that I was "as the representative of
the greatest political party" that he opposed
the proposition. This statement was greeted
wlh laughter. lie added : "I must , In view
or the hostility which Bsmarcl1 has always
diSplayed toward workingen , record my
veto agaInst the proposaL"
Prince Radzlwl also opposed the motion
on behalf or the Poles , and Richter unionist
announce thai the representatives of the
.5- . rrelsslnnlge union would not support the propo-
Count von Kardoff , conservative , here remarked -
marked : "If lerren Richter and Singer
- succeed by their remarks In dragging the
resolutIon or the Helchstag to the level ot
these of a Berlin municipality , they will at
the same tIme mall the Relchstag forever
rIdiculous. " ( Applause. )
Count von Iodeburg , on behalf or the I
Cuelphlsts opposed the proposition . and ,
Unyphausen : and Libermann for the anti- .
semites , approved It. Count van Manteurrel .
conservative . declared , amid cheers from the
right that the Relchstag owed Its existence
to Dsmarclc , and It was Inconceivable that
! chIld should refuse to congratulate its OWI
- father.
The house then voted on Levitzow's propo-
siton , and It was rojected-163 to 14G.
The president or the ROlchstag , Immediately
after the result was made known announced
his resignation , whIch caused an extraordinary -
nary scene , the members , ot the right rising
In n body and cheering as. they clapped
their bands In approval or his action. Even
the galleries expressed satisfaction In the
most open and marked manner. When the
excitement had subsided Levitzow
exciement Levlzow again
arose and formally handed over the prel-
doncy ot the Relchstag to Baron yon Douel
l3erenberg the senior vice president. As ho
( ld so Van Dennlgsen expressed the belief
Dr. Durldln , the other vice president , who i
now In Switzerland , will follow Von Lovlt-
zow's examplo. The remark was loudly
cheered by the members or the right. This
caused Richter to remark In n sarcastic
manner that even wihout Von Levlzow and
Dr. Durkln the Helcflsta would still be
able to continue its labors. The statement
elicited loud cries or "no" from the rIght
and much laughter from time members ot the
left. Time house then took a minor vote on
the estmates and adjourned until Tuesday
next , March 20.
Although It was known considerable oppo-
siton existed among the members to formally -
maly congratulating Prince Dsmarclc , It
was not entirely expected this opposition
would be carried to time extent I was. The
united votes of time centrists , Poles , rrels-
slnnege and members ot the yells partle .
however , brou/l abut this Issue
- n was stated In time lobbies or the Iteichs-
tag this afternoon , that the conservatives
and national liberals , who were dlssatsned

tag will , on the reassembling or the house
on Tuesday , endeavor to force the govern-
mont to dimuaoive. I they succe their Idea

on tOllas affair a being an insult to time

Is the moment Is not favorable to an elec.
tel , and that the elections would quits
probably result In a further Increase or the
memberhip ot the socialist part , as the
latter have lately been improving their posi-
then , even In tile agricultural districts , b )
eLaborate organization.
In contrast to the acton ot the elchstag ,
In tIme lower house ot the Prussian Dot today
the centrists , Poles , trelslnnlges and social-
Ists agqln united against a similar motion
to congratUlate Ilmarck ) on his birthday
11 this Instance the government secured thl
adoption at the proposition by a large ma.
jorlty .
S The news . at the vote In the Helchltag was '
Instantly conveyed to Emperor William ,
whole InleOe annoyance can be judged by
tIme following telegram ( , which he ImQlelltcly
caused to be fent to smarc1 :
"Prince Von nlmarclc , Dukoon 1.auen.

! o rejection ot the Uotpn I certain to
cause a great Ilel ot feeling In the country.
Richter , the radical leader , foresaw this ,
when a few ( lays ago he explalnol the reasons
why the radicals woulll oppue the propsi-
ton , when bo said It was not a question at
politeness toward an aged satcsman . liLa-
'marck , he claimed I , still represents certain
political principles , and his greal , personality
cannot ho divided Into the Dlmarck who
achieved so much In behalf at German unIty
antI the Bismarck who lisa been thoroughly
hoslo to liberalism . Richter said : "lie
does not regard his political career as
fifllShIel. lie takes every opportunity of in-
fnencng Public opinion by the authority In-I
hIs name In favor ot a policy which the lb-
orals have to combat almost 11al ) "

evening the following reply to the message
which ho sent to Prince Bsmarck this afternoon -
noon :

pray your majesty to accept tile respectful
expression of my gratitude for the message

The National Zoltung says a telegram was
received this evening from Dr Burlcln , resigning -
signing the vice presidency ot the lteichstag .
Time formal inquiry Into the loss of the
North German Lloyd steamship Elbe was
resumed and various experts deposed the
Elbe was thoroughly appointed and seaworthy -
worthy ali that her cargo was properly
stowed. The survivors ot the crew , Thomas
Stohlberg . the third ofcer ; A. N. Husel , the
first engineer , all Seibert . one ot the sea-
men , repeated their former statements. The
president of the court announced the Inquiry
would not end In thai court as three law
stilts were pending In connection with the i
disaster. lie added that In spite of the efforts -
nt Aberdeen the
forts of the German consu1 Abrdeen
statements of the crew or the Crathlo could
not b obtained , and indeed a deputation or
the crew ot that vessel refused to testify.
The captain ot the Crathle al1mltc the
soundings or his wel , which he hall taken
after the collision , showed the Crathlo was
not leaking. Herr Dallrow , superintendent
ot the North German Lloyd steamship line .
deposed that time Elbe hall eufclent small
boats to accommodate 384 persOns ant that
there were only 352 on board. lie also said
the water-tight bullheads of the steamer
were Intact when sue sale < The Inquiry
was then adjounc. -
Thomas Stolbrg , the third officer . said
that at the time of the colsion he was on
the bridge. He saw the foremast lght and
the green , sIde light of the steamer
Crathle. The first ofcer also saw these
lLghits. Time Eibe , according to time rules ,
continued on her course. A mInute afterward -
ward he saw. just behind the bridge , a red
light . and then almost instantly oceurrc
time collision. Witness ran to the side or the
vessel to ascertain the extent ot the ' damage ,
and without delay reported to the captain ,
who had appeared on the deck. According
to instruction from the captain he ordered
boats Nos. [ and 3 to be place In readiness.
The sea by this time had reached the aft
deck. He had only time to jump Into the
small boats before the Elba went own. Not
until moring did ho see time faces In the
boat , becoming aware for the frt time who
had been sayed. On board the Elbe there had
been no rushing no crowding , no disorder
and no cries for help. There had been no i
squabbling among the occupants for positions
In the small bet at time time the Elbe went
11 , own.
< Several witnesses were examined , but
nothing or Importance was elicited from
them. The hearing was finally adjourned
to await the result or time examination of
the InjurIes to the steamship Crathle , now
at Rotterdam.

LONION March 23.-New ( York World
Cablegram-Special Telegram.-Mrs. ) Emily
Crawford contributes to this week's Truth
the frt pUblc mentIon ot the queen's serious
conllton , concerning which there Is luch
private discussion. Mrs. Crawford writes
that on arrival the railway staten nt Nice
the queen "seemCInablo to raise her head.
She looked up and around and under her
eyelids . as If waiting strength to look other-
wise. One might have thought she did not
feel her feat under imer as wih the assistance -
anco or her servants she tried to descend
the sloping gangway from the train Into the
station. "
I Is well known among those familiar with
court affairs thal rheuma"I : ot the knes lies
lately not only developed complete less ot
power over botim but has extended toIe
back and arms and that a fatal Issue Is to be
feared at almost any time. The reports of
the queen's condition seriously affect the par-
lamentary situation. With the death or a
sovereIgn Parliament Is dissolved. This contingency -
tngency Is undcubtedly considered In all the
present calculations. The political atmosphere -
phere Is charge with sensational possibi-
ties. The government organs have published
thts week very evasive reports or Lord Hose-
bery's Intenton to resign , but time opposition
journals repeat the rumor daily. Time TImes ,
In a lender this week , discussed for the first
time reports cabled a fortnight ago.
S Meanwhile Rosebery Is In almost complete
retirement , In ( he country and the premier-
ship practically Is out or commission. Ills
doctors give only the guarded opinion that
ho may soon recover. The \Vorld's corre
spondent learns from friends or Earl Spencer ,
first lord of the admiralty . who' visited him
yesterday at his home , that Hosbery still Is
able to get only a few Iours' sleep out or the
twenty-four. and that only In the afternoon.
Those who saw him al the cabinet meeting
the other day say that his hair has turned
quito white In consequence er his Intense sur-
ferlng and continued Insomnia. or course this
cannot last , and unless some relief Is soon
round he will certainly resign at no distant
day. There has not been an hour In time last
three weeks when ho would not have done so
except for the opposition of rrlends.
Should the conservatives come Into power
at the general election necessitated by such
resignation , they probably would have a short
tenure unless they could repeat their success ,
for the queen's death Is considered Inevitable
wlt'lln a year or two al the most. Princess
Beatrice , who Is now her constant companion ,
has of late been always present during her
Interviews with the ministers , and Is recog-
nlzcd In ofcial circles as practically time
wIelder or all or time royal prerogatives. I
Is well understood that the queen has willed
this favored daughter the bulk or her sayings - i
ings beloved to be $75,000,000 , together with
Osboro and Balmoral both residences being
the private property or the queen.
The report Is current In the clubs here that
the prince or Wa'es c nvlrcel row or the aupe-
rlorlty ot the Aisa over the Drltann , wishes
to sell his yacht and that she Is likely to go
to a foreign purchaser.
Time astonishing statement Is made In the
course or time strike ! In the boot trade here
this week that tlmd prices paid to workmen
hero are In many cases double those In the
United Slates. A large consignment or
American made shoes was received lately at
Northampton , the center or time Industry here ,
and the following statement was made as to
the cost of making : The amount paid In
America for lasting . putting on sole and hel
by hand Is 8 * pence at Northampton , Is Gd ;
for sewing In wel and stitching , 11 America ,
2d ; In Northampton , 6d ; for finishing , In
AmerIca , Gd ; In Northampton , lid. Total
cost or work In America , Is 3 ½ d ; In North-
ampton , 2s 10d. This allows a cargo or shoes
to be sent here and sold for less than time
same quantty can ho made hero The facts
have been known for a long time to time employers -
plo'ers , and they have tried to Introduce the
American system of laklng , hut without
success , because ot the refusal of the trades
unions to allow any departure from time old 1
fashioned methods. Americans work In
teams ot eight , and each connnes himself
to some part or time shoo. In England not
more than four are allowed In a team , and
each one has 10 110 several kinds of worlc.
The changing or tools and the difculy involved -
volved In tIle adaptation or the eye and
hand to fresh work limit the power ot pro.
ducton here , as compared with time American -
can mothod. Yet In 1693 , when this ques-
ton was brought by the employers before
the national conference , time unionists refused
to consider II. The result Is thqt AmerIca Is
Increasing her exports every year , not only
to England , but to time Irltsh possessions In
distant parts of the world.
The interview betwen VIscount halifax ,
president of time I nglsh Church union , and
the pope yesterday Is regarded In Rome cr-
eke here as or great importance and sig-
nifcant of time enormous strIde the Catholic
church has malc recent ) In England. In a
recent letter the World correspondent , noted
that a number or the English clergy haye
taken order In time Roman church during
the lat two ) 'Cars. Time mere fact or Lord
halifax's visit would have raised I storm In
the nglhh , church a few years ago but It
hardly excites comment In tOday's papers.
The Church union las In Its membership 3,000
ot the Anglican clergy and twenty bishops.
Lord halifax Is reported as asking time pOpe
to send "a tender and gracious mesage to
the Americans In the torthcomlng encyclical. "

LONDON , March 23.-Th epidemic ot influenza -
fuenza which hal been causing so many
deaths and such widespread sickness throughout -
out the United Kingdom , Is decreasing In
strength. In this city , as a result , the death
rate has dropped from 42.2 per 1,000 last
week to 33.4 for the present week. The
normal death rate Is about 21 per 1,000. ' But ,
In spite ot this fair showing fresh cases ot
influenza are reported daily.
The general condition ot the .etropls
Is indicated ( by the tact that 137,000 dest-
tute persons were relieved by time various
charitable institutions during the past week
atll the Interim report or the select committee -
tee ot time house or Cominons whIch was
appointed to Inquire Into Limo existing dis-
tress has disclosed a state or affairs which
apparently can only b met by extensive 1
relief works In certain dl trlets. Through
the medium of the local governmenl board ,
a circular letter was addressed to the mayors
or towns , and to the chairmen ot county
councils , asking for Intormaton on the following -
lowing points :
1. Whether there Is any exceptional dls-
, tress In time district , and how tar this Is
duo to circumstances pecular to time locality
or to the severe weather ?
2. What Is being done . to meet the dis-
tress by public authorities , or by voluntary
agencies , and the average . 'daily number re-
leve by each or the agfncle durIng the
week ended Saturday February 10 ?
3. Is an emplo'e register maintaIned , and
with what result ?
4. lave you any suggestion to make for
Limo purpose or relieving such distress ?
The replies to this lrclar letter came
In with promptitude , and time { coummittee . In
its Interim report , made nn analysis or those
replies. In substance , the 1,194 replies which
were received from distrjcfa representing a
dlstrJct representng
populaton ot over 20,000o . may be summed
up by sayIng that In 596 loclties , representIng -
Ing a population at 6,792.37. there Is no exceptional -
ceptonal distress ; that In _ 454 localtes , with
a population or 10,381,000. ther Is exceptional
distress , due solely to time seyerly or the
wInter , and that In 14 localtes , with a
population at 3,700,000. there . Is only partial
want notwithstanding an , exceptional want ,
ot employment , owing t slack trade , depression -
pression of agriculture or to particular local
Industrial causes.
From this showing the committee con-
cludes that Il Is Ibundantiy , clear that while

tactory. Thereupon Limo ambassadors pro-
ceeded to the business which brought them
Loge timer.
The conditions on wblch Japan will consent -
sent to end tIme war were slated In explicit
terms by the mikado's minister. After some
discussion 11 Hung Chang asked for three
days delay In order that he might consult
time authorities In Peking on certain points.
The Japanese minIsters , who have entered
on Limo negotiations with an earnest desire
negotatons wih
to reach a satisfactory conclusion , gran ted
the request.
Unless the government at Peking Instructs
LI Hung Chang to reject the demands which
Japan considers tndlspenslble to a permanent

NEW YORK , March 23-Speclal ( Tele-
gram.-The ) place ot meeting ot these peace
ambassadors recalls an Internalonal Incident
of a generation ago , known as the Shlmono-
sokl a\alr. The prince or Shosu , a semi-
Independent ruler , attempted to close the
straits leading to Limo Inland sea. He planted
1 battery on a little sandy plo and In June
and July 1803 , fred on two American shIps ,
a French and a Dutch ship , killing several
men. Failing to obtain satisfaction from time
Shogun's government , the representatives ot
Limo three countrIes concerned together ' \11
tbo British representative , who deemed I
essential for all the western pOWers to make
common cause In their dealings with the
Japanese or those days , sent a combine feet
ot eighteen men-of-war to bombard Shlmono-
seki The town was sheled two days , Sep-
tember 6 and G , 18G3. Nol content with
this , the foreign governments whoso ships
had been fred on demanded an Indemnity
or $3,000,000 the last installment or which
was paid by the Japanese government In
A resident or Japan , writIng on the sub-
ject commented thus : "No Incident In the
dealings ' or tire west with Japan has met with
so much adverse crIticism as thIs a\alr.
Several years later time United States government -
ment , conscience-stricken. repaid Its portion -
ton or the indemnity ; at least It repaid the i
principal but not time interest The ether :

After a contest or several hours time Chinese
were driven toward New Chwalg , within time
fortifications or which city they established
themselves , apparently determined to defend
the position In earnest. An attack was made
on March 4. Two poInts , at time north and
east were assaulted at dawn and al10 o'cloclt
the gates were forced and breaches made In
the walls . Time reslstancQ was stubborn , and
It was not until 1 o'clock at night that the
struggle ended EIghteen hundred or the
Chinese were killed before time streets were
cleared and vIctory was proclalmC1. Five
hundred prIsoners were taken and the bal-
once or the beaten army escaped II time darlc-
ness. Sixteen large guns and an immense
quantity or other war materIal was taken
Time latest advices convey the Impression tbat
the capture was effected by troops or time first
army from lal Cheng.
11 Hung Chang's appointment as peace
ambassador Is now an established fact Even
In Japan his mIssion Is looked upon as gen-
uino , and time posslblty that I may have
practical , rcsuits Is admitted In the highest
official circles. An Impression prevails that
Japan has allowed some Inlllcaton or her In-
tentons to bo convoyed ( to the Chinese gov-
eminent , and that LI will come prepared to
accept any terms not utterly ruinous or ( lie-
graceful Count Ito and Viscount Matsu will , as
before , bo designated to conduct time negota-
tons on the Japanese sldo. Mr. Foster will
accompany time viceroy , Is Is reported , and
ho will also have time assistance ot Mr.
lethlck , formerly vice consul or time United
States at Tlen-Tsln.
The question whether the procedlngs at
Shlmonoselc will modify ( the Japanese plans to
the extent of preventing the occupation of
Peking Is earnestly discussed So tar as can
bo torseen , preparations for continuing time
war will not be Interrupted wh110 the confer-
ences are In progress Time two army divIsions -
vIsions remaIning In Japan will soon bo on
time way to Osaka , and one divIsion , or a part :
ot it . to Formosa . Time Chinese arc also ;
keeping In mind the possible necessities of time
lture. New guns are daily being mounted
at time Taku forts , tie number now amounting
to 284 , and fresh lnes of detenle are con-
stonily being added to the envIronment or

yoking opinions of high provincial ofclals
as to the Ilropriety ot longer continuing the

parts of the emilire generally favoring time
