LONDON , June 1. Shahzada Nazrulla
Khan , the second son of the ameer of Af
ghanistan , who arrived hero last week on a
visit at the Invitation of the government , as
cabled to the Associated press at the time , Is
the lion of the hour. Ho Is being feted and
petted to such a degree that It will be mar
velous If ho returns to Caboul without having
formed the Idea that Great Britain looks upin
hlo father as being a most Important ruler.
All the movements of Nazrulla ore duly
chronicled by the press and every little de
tail concerning him Is eagerly devoured.
A visit from the ameer himself or his eld
est son , Haslbula Khan , had been on the
tapis for some considerable time , but although
much talked of and frequently discussed In
the prosy , all who know Afghanistan were
well convinced that neither the ruler nor
Ills heir apparent would leave their native
country. As a matter of courtesy the Invita
tion was addressed to the ameer , and the
latter accepted It , "health permitting , " but
from the first all who are posted on the sub
ject were confident that the ameer would not
Icavo Caboul. It was , however , generally
believed the eldest son would represent his
father , and It was somewhat of a disappoint
ment when It was announced that the second
Bon who , by the way. Is the child of a slave
woman would visit the capital of his father's
ally. Considerable difficulty as to the eti
quette to be observed was felt and until about
a week before the prince's arrival It had
not been settled how ho was to be styled.
Everything , however , has been smoothed over
nnd by every means In their power the au-
thoritlcs arc seeking to Impress upon the
young Afghan the greatness of the British
empire , and by this means to confirm the
nmcor In his preference for Great Britain
over his near neighbor , Russia.
From the moment the young prlnco he is
only 23 yeats old set foot on Indian soil ho
was received In right royal form and with
every possible distinction. Addresses Innumerable -
numerable have been presented to him. Ho
has been received by the highest officials
everywhere , and his Journey hero was one
long scries of receptions.
The prince , as already stated , brought with
him a large suite and a detachment of Af
ghan troops. Being a Mohammedan , the
religious peculiarities of the Moslem have had
to bo taken Into consideration. Among his
attendants are a number of cooks to prepare
their leader's food In accordance with Moslem
customs. Nazrulla Khan has also In attend
ance upon him Colonel Talbott of the foreign
department ot the Indian government and
Mr. T. A. Martin , the Afghan agent.
TREATED AS A SON OF A KINO.
Throughout his six weeks' stay In this coun
try the prlnco will bo received as the shah-
zada ( son of a king ) . Ho Is attended by
royal escorts , has been received by the queen ,
Is received by royalty , and will. In fact , have
.a royal progress until Ills departure.
The program of receptions Includes fes
tivities In his honor at Leeds , Manchester ,
Glasgow , Liverpool and other commercial
centers. In London , In addition to the re
ceptions at Marlboraugh house and Windsor
cattle , the corporation of London has voted
1,500 for a dejeuner and reception at the
Guild hall. Ills highness , who is a slender
man with a weak beard , usually wears a
frock coat with gold trimmings and an east
fit ern turban. Dorchester , which has been
specially hired by the Indian office for Naz
rulla Khan during his visit to London , Is
a magnificent mansion , probably the finest
private house In the metropolis. Originally
built by Mr. Holfordlio Is said to have
made his fortune In Australia , It now belongs
to his son , Captain Holford , a well known
member of the prince ot Wales' suite.
Large era\\ils assemble outside Dorchester
liouso every day , and Nazrulla's appearance
In public attracts much attention. The
royal family Is having a hard time with the
Afghan prince. They have been vainly tryIng -
Ing to Impress upon him , but ho Is as
stolid ns Sitting Bull , giving himself the
greatest airs and keeps them all waiting.
The state ball at Buckingham palace on
Thursday last was the most brilliant affair
of the kind In years past. The local ma
jority of the gentlemen wore very showy
uniforms , their breasts covered with glitter
ing orders , while the ladles In their charm-
Ins dresses and Jewels formed a pretty con
trast to the picturesque Afghan prince's suite
of Nazrulla Khan , whoso gorgeous eastern
robes added additional luster to the scene.
There was a wonderful display of gold plate
In the supper room. Many of the richest
and heaviest pieces were fixed as ornaments
to the walls , while the tables and the mag
nificent buffet were covered with some of
the most valuable and highly prized speci
mens of the goldsmith's art. Besides this
remarkable display of goldwaro there were
leverul oriental show pieces , which were dis
played In honor ot the Afghan prince.Among
them was a peacock composed of precious
itones and valued at $150,000. Two thousand
Invitations were Issued tor the state ball ,
and It U rafo to say that moro than that
number of people were present. The repre
sentation of the royal family entered the
ball room at 11 p. m. In a procession headed
by the princes * ot Wales and the duchess
ot Saxc-Coburp-Ootlia. the great officers ot
state , with their wands of office , walking
backward before the head of the procession.
Directly after the members of the royal
family were seated dancing began. There
were very few American * present , and It
was noticeable that the published list of the
persons Invited did not Include the names of
Mr. and Mrs. Ogdcn Goelet , of Mr. and Mrs ,
Rlchurd , Window , or , la fact , of any of
the prince of Wales' Riviera friends. Lady
Dereaford ( the duchess ot Marlborough ) was
one ot the Americana present. She wore usa
dre ot palo brocade , ornamented with
beautiful violet Dowers _ and wonderful dla-
Mm. Gwrs Curzea , Mn. Joseph'
Chamberlain and Mrs. Hearst of San Fran-
cUco were also present.
TROUBLES OP A PniNCESS.
The English papers are now openly allud
ing to the troubles and trials of the. prin
cess of Wales , the substance of which was
cabled to the Associated press at the time
the princess declined to represent Queen
Victoria at the drawing room held at Buck
ingham palace , when she was Informed
that a certain peeress , to whom the prince
has for years paid much attention , was to
be present. Sketch , for Instance , says that
the peeress Is "greatly worried over cer
tain private bothers and that she only re
mains In England In deference to the
queen's wish. She declined to hold the
last drawing room because she expected
the presence there of a certain personage
whom she declines to meet. "
The criticisms of Alphonse Daudet , the
distinguished French author , who has been
visiting England , are raising quite a storm
In social circles. Ho said that English
women are utter strangers to elegance.and
good taste , adding : "The English we now
encounter in Paris , with flattened-down hair
and huge feet , I found differed In no single
particular from the English lady of rank
whom wo met In London. They are not
handsome In features and thcro Is nothing
seductive about their physical form. "
Two American beauties are likely to take
a prominent part In the coming elections.
Captain Naylor-Lcland , who married Miss
Jane Chamberlain , daughter of H. S. Cham
berlain of Cleveland , 0. , will bo the liberal
candidate for the Southport division of
Lancashire , which division Is now repre
sented In the House of Commons by Hon.
Oeorge Curzon , who married Miss Mary
Letter of Washington and Chicago , and , as
It Is whispered that the two American ladies -
dies are to take an active part In the canvass -
vass , some lively electioneering work maybe
bo anticipated on both sides. Captain Nay-
lor-Leland represented Colchester In the
House of Commons , but resigned his seat
on February 2 last.
The United States embassy was to have
been represented at the state ball at Duck-
Ingham palace last Thursday night by the
United States ambassador , Hon. Thomas F.
Bayard , his wife and daughter ; Mr. and
Miss Roosevelt , Commander Cowles , Mr.
Wells and Mr. Carter , but on account of
the death of Mr. Walter Q. Grcslmm , the
United States secretary of state , they re
A number of Important engagements In
the musical world have recently been made
for America. Franz Oudrlcek , the cele
brated violinist who has been playing In
the London philharmonic concerts , will
make an extended concert tour In the
United States this fall. Morris Rosenthal ,
the pianist , will give a scries of fifty con
certs , and Mme. Dovcro Saplo , the well
known soprano , will again make her appearance -
pearanco In America. In addition to these
artists , Mr. and Mrs. George Henschcl will
appear In twenty concerts during the spring
1SOG.DIVINE SARAH REAPPEARS.
The principal event of the week In the
theatrical world has been the reappearance
of i Sarah Bernhardt at Daly's theater. The
drama < "Glsmonda" ' which the great actress
presented | for the first time. In London , Is a
powerful | one , and has drawn crowded
houses. ] "Glsmonda" was performed at the
Renaissance ; theater In Paris by Bernhardt
and her company 100 successive nights.
There are no fewer than thirty speaking
The negotiations which have been pending
for a long time between John Hare and
E. S. Wlllard are now completed. The lat
ter will consequently take possession of the
Garrlck theater on September 1.
Sir Henry Irving has already begun prep
arations for his coming American trip , and
the tour will bo moro extensive than any
of his predecessors In the United States.
It Is considered not at all unlikely that
Lord Roscbery's second Derby may have a
political effect , similar to that of 1S94. The
nonconformist conscience , as reflected by
the Chronicle , Is already up In arms "at the
spectacle presented by a racing and gam
bling premier. " H said on the following
day : "Doubtless ho may bo called fortu-
nato , but we hope ho will never aspire to
win another Derby. " On the other hand ,
the other newspapers heartily congratulate
the premier on his double victory , and It
may have a greatly beneficial effect upon
his waning popularity.
It Is announced hero that Count do Castel
lan e , who recently married Mlsa Anna
Gould , Intends to devote part of his wife's
fortune to a grand racing stable. Ho has
already bought several horses , which will 1
soon bo run In the races at Autucll , France.
TROUBLE COMMENCES EARLY.
In spite of the reassuring statements re
cently made on the subject , there are Indi
cations of dissensions in the newly formed
American society. One set of members
who control the organization Is accused by
the others with conducting the society for
personal advantage and with trying to use
their positions In order to obtain admission
to certain London clubs. The officers of these
clubs claim to have letters from the United
States ambassador , In which ho refused to
bo responsible for anything socially con
nected with the American society.
Mr. Joseph II. Mauley of Augusta , Me. ,
left London today for a tour of Scotland
and Ireland. Ho has been all over Europe
and has been well'received by the leading
statesmen of all countries , owing to the
letters of introduction which he had from
the late secretary of state , Mr. Gresham.
Mr. Mauley says events are occurring so
rapidly that no one can tell who will be
the presidential candidate of the republican
party until the next meeting of congress.
At the Pioneer club , where the "new-
woman" resorts , an International woman's
Maybrlck committee was formed yesterday
for the'purpose of raising funds to conduct
a series of meetings to agitate the release
from prison of Mrs. Maybrlck , who Is acaln
Mr. Claus Sprcckcls and wife , with 1GO

yesterday and engaged a gorgeous suite of

down In his apartments than ho accident
ally heard .that their former occupant had
suffered from fever. Consequently he and
Mrs. SprccUcb hastily left the hotel with
all their baggage In the middle of the night.

LONDON , June 1. ( New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram. ) Cardinal
Gibbons spent two days In Paris on his
way to Rome , and talked with characteris
tic freedom to the newspaper Interviewers.
"American priests , " said he , "would bo
delighted to help the French church for the
sake of its old errors and sloth. Intead of
prayer and waiting In the obscure silence
of the temple the French clergy ought to
organize a serious propaganda amongst the
people. The sound of bells Is no longer suffi
cient to draw people to church In France.
The clergy Is earnest , learned and pious ,
but It Is timid. There Is , however , no place
for . .timid people In the work nowadays.
Priests must bo hardy and valiant. As a
matter of form , the priests of America
have greater influence over the 8,000,000 or
10,000,000 of Catholics amongst our popula
tion of 65,000,000 than the French clergy
have ' ! over the 30,000,000 Catholics amongst
a population of 30,000,000. The priests ought
to bo well acquainted with three things ,
the gospel , man and human society. They
ought to go amongst the people , taking part
In and understanding their dally lives.
They should study social questions , the
relations of capital and labor , divorce , the
woman's movement , In short , everything
that goes to make up the social life. "
WOMAN AGAINST WOMAN.
In my cable letter of March 2 I described
the cruel but absolute social ostracism which
met Captain Naylor Leyland and his wife ,
formerly Miss Jennie Chamberlain , after
ho loft the tory for the liberal party. This
boycott was intensified when the lory seat
which ho resigned was captured for the
liberals. Now Captain Leyland has been
chosen to contest Southport at the next
election , the seat which Is held by Hon.
George Curzon , and for which he will un
doubtedly stand to gain. Mrs. Leyland has
always taken an actlvo personal share in
the elections of her husband , and has , of
course , now a new Incentive to see her
husband returned. Mrs. Curzon as Miss
Mary Loiter was always credited with great
political ambition for her future husband.
Mr. Curzon Is one of the most promising
young men In the tory party. If the tory
party comes In next time he will certainly
be In the cabinet , or returned to Parliament.
We arc therefore certain to sec In the can
vass at Southport two exceptionally bril
liant and beautiful ladles of American birth
pitted against each other In a personal
contest , hardly , If at all , less energetic than
that of the two English husbands. Mr.
Curzon has already taken his bride to Southport -
port to Introduce her to the electors there.
She has made a great sensation In London
and public curiosity about her Is so great
that the London Telegraph the other day In
a leading editorial upon the new popularity
of Battersca park , took occasion to say
that : "Its lake is BO beautiful a resort that
yesterday wo saw a no less person than
Mr. George Curzon rowing his American
brldo around It. "
It may Interest lady cyclists to know that
Princess Maud of Wales , the duchess of Con-
naught , Princess Henry of Pless and other
ladles of exalted rank may bo seen on their
wheels almost any morning In the same park ,
secured to the poor people of Battersca only
a few years ago by John Burns , the worklng-
man's representative In Parliament.
CASTELLANES TO BE OSTRACIZED.
Of another American , I read In the Paris
papers : "In consequence of Father Monsa-
bre's crusading sermon at Clermont Errand ,
some of the best families In the Faubourg St ,
Germain have agreed to Ignore a recent great
Franco-American marriage. This sermon was
preached on the eighth centennial of the First
crusade , and was leveled at the prostration
of French aristocracy before the golden calf
as represented by the shady company of promoters
meters , railroad wreckers and such like. "
The Custcllanes have taken a three years'
Ieas3 of the mansion of the marquis d'Her-
vey , In St. Denis avenue. Bosquet.
HE'S NOT A GOOD THING.
All sorts of stories are current about the
Afghanistan prince , now a guest of the queen.
Ono newspaper gravely prints this correc
tion : " \ published story about the behavior
of Shahzada at Lady Twcedmouth's party Is
Incorrect. The young prlnco did express
himself as being much shocked by the low
dresses of the ladles , but It Is not true that
he refused to go Into the drawing room , and
remained In the hall. He certainly appeared
In the saloon , but refused to take Lady Lans-
downc In to supper on his arm , apparently
thinking It ungentlemanly to touch
her , and marched a few paces In
front of her ladyship , to her great
discomfort. " The prlnco Is , In fact , turnIng iti
Ing out n rather white elephant on the
hands of Ills entertainers. Having ven '
tured on his visit originally with the great
est reluctance , but at the Imperative com '
mand of Ids father , ho has been In an Ill-
humor ever since he left his native land.
Of that treacherous race which twice within
twenty years matsacred In cold blood the
friendly British missions , he Is afraid to
trust himself In the streets of London lest
vengeance would bn wreaked on him by
the cockney * . Hitherto eastern princes
have patiently and docilely gone through
the round of entertainments and visits ar
ranged for them , but he frequently alters
the plans of his hostn and repudiates the '
social duties pretcribed for him with 'n
entire disregard of appearances. His suite ,
a picked body of Afghanlllm'en , have Imi l"
tated their matter's methods and could not
even bo persuaded to accompany him on his
visit to the queen , though she was moit
curious to teu them. In fact , It was only
under the strongest pressure that the prince
ihimself was Induced to return the visit of
tthe prince and princess of Wales , and dur
ing hlf audlt-ncc with the queen he declined
with strong Impasslvencn the official com
PROTECTION MAKES NO , HEADWAY.
There Is not the slightest probability that
the British government wll ) , accede Colonel
Howard Vincent's suggestion to put a tax on
foreign commercial travelers coming to Eng
land to sell their wares * Ills question was
directed chiefly at German bag men , who
swarm over England underselling homemade
made goods of nearly every description. How
ard Vincent represents Sheffield , the greatest
center of the cutlery Industry , where the
German competition has been severely felt ,
and his request was made In the Interest of
the cutlers. He Is the great apostle of pro
tection In tills country , but though these
doctrines have been preached with some
transient success at the few parliamentary
elections where foreign competition has In
jured certain trades , they' are making no
headway with the leaders df either party In
Obviously no honor conferred on. an Eng
lishman In this generation has been as pop
ular as the knighthood df Henry Irving. As
to himself , however , I understand he rigor
ously accepts It only as n recognition of
equality In social a ? In other respects of h'.s
own with other professions , and even goes .to
the length of requesting his friends to still
address him as "Mr. " Irving.
Much public comment has been excited by
the refusal of Mr Holt of Liverpool to accept
the baronetcy offered him at the same time.
I am told by one of his associates that the
only reason was that he had 'eight children ,
and ho Is unwilling to practically pauperize
the other seven In order to settle a sufficient
Income on the eldest son to sustain the posi
tion after his death. BALLARD SMITH.

of the New York World Special Telegram. )
Threats of civil war are heard In certain
quarters , with the prediction that "The
empire will go to pieces , " although those
who use this language are accounted among
the political adventurers. The Japanese
people have been wrought up by the result
of European Interference to such a pitch of
wrath that cautious observers are convinced
that nothing short of the downfall of the
present ministry will avert /grave domestic
disturbances. The government's silence
was broken on the 13th by the Imperial
edict recounting the main facts of the past
four weeks , and proclaiming the emperor's
acceptance of the conditions , ot peace. The
document was received with the respect In
variably accorded to the' sovereign official
utterances. Criticism was directed solely
against his advisers , who. are held ac
countable for everything relating to the
present situation. Now that the first dis
closure hat ) been made , others will follow.
Many things that were not , touched on In
the edict will be brought to light and dis
cussed In a spirit of bitter , probably unreasoning -
reasoning , animosity. The * ministers of
state will bo embarrassed moro than ever.
The Japanese'are qulck to-anger and have
shown already how hard Cjey. are to deal
with when blinded by "political excitement.
It Is probable that when the masses can
look at results moro calmly they will dis
cover the empire not Injured materially by
the giving back of continental territory ,
but Is relieved from a constant burden of
anxiety and expense. But this conclusion
will not illay the Irritation against the
high officials held accountable for recent
negotiations. Their effort to ascertain the
views of European powers before formulat
ing the demands on China are not appre
ciated. H Is claimed that they should have
assured themselves beyond doubt. The al
leged unnecessary haste In yielding to the
league when the position might have been

score are at an end. Extraordinary pre

PRINTED CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS.
The socialist press has recommenced the
publication of official documents marked
confidential. " One document printed Is a
circular sent last week by the War de
partment to the commanders of the various
army corps , directing that the socialist re
cruits should be kept out of 'the ' guard
corps , and that all such conscripts should
be carefully watched In order to prevent
them from making proselytes In the army.
It is significant that the foreign office here
has been obliged by circular to call attention
to the fact that In view of the unwillingness
of the French courts of Justice to assist the
German courts or authorities In gaining In
formation about Incriminated persons In
custody In Germany < t Is better to request
the aid of the German embassy at Paris , or
of the German consulates at Havre , Bor

NEW ORLEANS , June 1. J. N. Polthe-
mus , secretary of the League of the Cuban
Republic In this city , has furnished the
press of this city with a batch of correspond
ence received from Insurgent headquarters In
uba , under date of April 30 , Including a let-
er from President Marti of that date. Be-
ng questioned as to the death of Marti , he
tated that there were many reasons why ho
Id not believe that such was the case.
"First , " said he , "Marti was not , when last
eard of , In the district In which ho was
ald to have been killed , If ho had been
here It would have meant a march of slxty-
ve leagues from where he was last heard
rom ; second , nothing has been said of the
Ing which his mother gave him , and which
always wore , for I know It well ; neither
egardlng the marks of chains on his body ,
"urthermore , If It had been Marti Ills body
vould not have been Immediately burled , but
would have been brought to Havana or San-
lago do Cuba for public view ; and as a con
clusive proof to mo that lib Is hot dead , I
vould state that General Martinez Campos
ias not as yet publicly stated that ho was
ure of Martl's death.
"Under date of April 30 General Pedros
'ercz , commanding the clcpartmsnt of Guta
name , reports : February 24 , captured Fort
labonlco , together with a quantity of arms
and ammunition. The enemy left three
dead. The same day attacked Fort Tori , but
vas driven off , some of my men wounded , but
lot seriously. February 25 , captured Fort
Sabana dc Cuba ; guns , ammunition and
lorses. The same day forced the enemy to
withdraw toward Gutanamo. March i ,
mil an encounter with the enemy at Ulloa.
The enemy withdrew , taking their wounded ,
nit leaving six dead on the field. March 11 ,
lad three running fights. March 1C , a skir
mish. March IS , a fight at Hcrmltano , but
with small loss on either side. April 1C ,
lad a fight at Guayabal do Vatras , some loss
and wounded on both sides. "
Major General Maceo , In a report to the
commander-In-chlef , says : "On the 24th of
April , learning that yourself and Marti and
other members of our cause were In the
vicinity of Arroyo Hondo , and about twelve
leagues from where I was , I at once detached
part of the men under my command , passing
Lhrco miles from Gutanamo , In full view ot
the Spanish forces. At noon the following
day , when my command had halted for din
ner , the outposts were driven In by skir
mishers of the enemy , who were coming on at
a double quick. They occupied a higher posi
tion than ours and well wooded.
The First regiment of Llmones was de
ployed In line of battle and began to fire ,
detaining the enemy's advance. In the
meantime Major Modesto Rio , at the head of
another division , turned the enemy's flank ,
after crossing a brook which separated us.
The enemy made a vigorous resistance and
I ordered a general attack with all the forces
at my command , and after two hours hard
fighting , during which tlmo my cavalry did
most effective work , the enemy was finally
driven back , leav.ng the greater part of
their dead on the field , toward Gutanamo.
Their dead numbered forty-two and over
sixty-five wounded , I managed to secure a
good quantity ot arms and ammunition.
Among their dead was a captain and ser
geant , and several officers badly wounded. I
regret to have to report to you the death
of Major Arcll Duverger , who was killed In
turning the enemy's flank ; also three more
and six wounded , not dangerously. " Macco
closes lilc report by calling special attention
to the bravery of a number of officers under
Under date ot April 30 General Macco , In
his report , made mention of the capture of
fifty men who occupied block forts at the
village of Ramon do Las Vaguas ; also se
cured a large amount of ammunition , arms
and equipment. When they left the town at
4 p. m , the fort was destroyed by orders of
"During the afternoon we were _ _ attacked
by the Spaniards under Major Tejerlzo , and
after a stubborn fight succeeded In driving
them from the field. They left a portion of
their dnad and wounded In our hands. Wo
also took a number of prisoners. "
The letter from President Marti , under date
of April 30 , states that Antonio Macco has
0,000 men , and gives the numbsr ot men
under other leaders and their positions , show
ing the Insurgents now under arms and well
equipped number about 8,000 men , The
president conculdcs as follows : "I have Is
sued notices for the election of the consti
tutional government and to do all which will
give my Culm the dignity and respect she
deserves In the races of the world. Unite
