( Copyright , 1893 , by Associated Press. ) LONDON , Nov. G. The marquis of Salis bury's declaration on tbo subject of the withdrawal of the French mission from Fashoda made at the Mansion house ban quet last night In honor ot General Lord Kitchener it not regarded hero as being wholly satisfactory. The entire absence of nny reference to the extraordinary naval preparations Is consid erably commented upon and It Is remarked how careful the British premier was to ex plain that the evacuation of Fashoda was only In the nature of oil on troubled waters nnd that British diplomacy had not yet weathered the storm which thu Marchand inlaslou conjured up. It l recognized that the French premier , M. Dupuy , and his col- Iraguett , Intend to carry out what they have promised ; but a factor which must be reckoned with Is the fact that there are in fluences at work In Paris which render the existence of any irinlstry precarious and which might at any moment In the event of certain contingencies provoke a general up heaval. The English papers point out that the evacuation of Fashoda Is only an Install ment of the satisfaction expected by Great Britain and that Franco has yet to nw.iltow the pill of withdrawing from the Bahr-el- Ghazal region. Under these circumstances the debate In the French Chamber of Depu ties on Faehoda next week la eagerly awaited , as the Fashoda government Is then expected to explain Its Intentions regarding the remainder of the French posts In the Kilo valley , established by Major Marchand. Shown Conelllntory Spirit. In diplomatic circles a reassuring Impres sion hns been made by M , Dupuy's declara tion of yeaterday evening that the French eovorntncnt's policy will bo based on well understood Interests and that Its efforts Wit ! bo measured by the value of the objects Jn view. This Is held to Imply that the pres ent government will show a conciliatory attitude on the remaining points In dispute. The attitude of the sultan of Turkey and the kbedlve of Egypt on the Egyptian quoe- tlon is being closely watched and It IB eald the British foreign ofQco has received proofs ot attempts on the part ot France to Influence - enco both ot them against Great Britain. The intrigues at Constantinople , It is added , weri greatly checked by the present rela tions between Great Britain and Germany , uud the British diplomatic agent In Egypt , Lord Cromer , has taken the khedlvc In bund and Is understood to have put before him a sort of ultimatum which may have in volved his deposition In favor of his brother , thereupon the khedlvc became submissive and Indicated as a token ot submission his willingness to visit England and pay hla rpspects to Queen Victoria , a duty which he has hitherto evaded , although ho has paid prolonged visits to ( several European capitals. Prepared for War. A majority of the people here have beet convinced that war between Great Brltalt nnd Franco is Inevitable , sooner or later and many expressions of regret were heari today at the military and other clubs tha1 the conflict apparently is not to take place In the uear future , as It Is the general bo < llof that the army and navy are In a per foot state of preparedness. The genera feull'ng In the country Is such as would en florae any warlike action upon the part o the government. The whole reserve squad ron has assembled nt Devonport and Is nov completely fitted out and ready to sail at i few hours' notice.

The ministerial policy an- noarv nby \ the premier , M. Dupuy , In the Chamber of Deputies yesterday , has been generally welt received. The cabinet's pol icy ot conciliation and Its decision to end the attacks on the army arc approved and the Chamber's endorsement of this policy alno meets with approval.

The report which the State department has receive * ' from the peace commissioners In Paris indl cate that that body has proceeded on exact ! ; the line anticipated , consequently the actloi of yesterday wns not a disappointment. I was fully expected that the Spanish commis aloners would endeavor to make better term 1 than these offered by the American comrals sloners. It was not expected that they woul closed at once with the American proposl tlon. While they have not in exact term submitted a counter proposition the Span lards by entering upon the argument ot th American proposition have shown a dtsposl tlon to negotiate relative to the Phlllppln Islands that has proved erroneous the pre diction' that they would Indignantly spur any proposition that contemplated a relln qulshment of Spanish sovereignty over th archipelago. U is quite probable that the way la no' ' open to a compromise between the two side ' and that a monetary difference will ba foun to be the only one of substance. This , it I believed.

RAISER AND SULTAN Agreement Equivalent to Armed Alliance is Eeported Between Them. LARGE LAND GRANTS CEDED TO GERMANY Turkey Investing in German Friendship at a Dear Price. TO WARD OFF AGGRESSIONS OF POWERS German Papers Oall Our Demands on Spain a Piece of Yankee Impudence. MUCH GIFT-GIVING AT CONSTANTINOPLE Authorities of Ilelilclherpr tTnlTcrntty Tnko Flrnt Stenn to 11 Awny with DuellliiR Clnliu for DamnRC * United State * . ( Copyright. 1S9S , by Associated Press. ) BERLIN. Nov. C. The Frankfurt Zeltuns says It learns from a well-Informed source that Emperor William's visit to Turkey led to an agreement by which Germany under takes to support the Integrity of the sultan's Asiatic possessions , for which Germany will receive commercial and Industrial privileges. The paper adds that It Is believed this agreement Is tantamount to an armed alli ance between the two countries. A num ber of rumors as to the real objects o Em peror William's visit to Constantinople and the Holy land have been In circulation ever since the Intention of his majesty to visit the Orient was announced about a year ago. These alleged purposes Included Important railroad concessions to Germany , the ceding of territory In Syria to Germany for coloniz ing purposes , the ceding of the port of Hafla In Palestine , the ceding of the Island of Rhodes to Germany , and the granting to Germany the right to plant a large German colony along the whole frontier at Tripoli. This last agreement , It was added , was Intended to protect the sultan against French encroachments across the Tripoli- Tunis frontier and would also avoid granting Germany a concession In Asia Minor , which , If added , would Induce Russia to demand compensation. On the other hand It haa been announced that some of the powers have notified Turkey that It will not bo per mitted to cede any territory to Germany ; and Russia , It was announced from Berlin on Saturday last , was arriving at an'under standing with Austria and Franco to pro vide against the accomplishment of certain German plans In the Orient. German Piipem Crltlelne t' ' . The news that the United States now de mands the whole of the Philippine Islands haa created much Interest hero. The Ger man newspapers freely comment unfavorably upon It. The Cologne Gazette says : "The Interests of Germany will be especially Injured by the American annexation , as the policy of the open door , which has hitherto reigned under < tbo Spanish -flag , will be quickly ended. Moreoverj-'tho' Alricrlcan d&timnflj from a humane point of view , Is unheard of. It means the sqeezlng of a fallen foe to the last drop of blood and would sully the name of the victor. The whole sympathies of the world would be on the side of Spain , brutally ground down by her enemy. " The National Zeltung points out that the Philippine Islands would , In American hands , become not only of Immense commercial , but of paramount Importance , "which all the powers having Interests In the far east are bound to seriously consider. " Therefore , the National Heitung thinks Bomo power may oppose the change oJ ownership. The Vosslche Zlctung lectures the United States for Us alleged greed and the Deutsche Zeltung describes the United States demand as a "piece of characteristic Yankee Impu dence" and calls upon Europe to "put It8 foot down while there Is yet time. " The government of Germany and the semi-official newspapers have been silent 01 extremely cautious. Hut It Is quite evldenl that Germany will not Interfere In the settlement of the Philippine question noi even encourage Interference upon the parl of others , and It Is understood this hae been Intimated to the Spanish government To InveNtlRiite TrniiH.Vtlnntlc lUiuc. The German government officials have or dered an Investigation Into the reportei ocean race between the White Star lln < steamer Teutonic and the North Germar Lloyd line steamer Kaiser Frledrlch on theli last trip to New York. As the Kaisei Frledrlch belongs to a subsidized companj the government will also be Interpellate ! In the Reichstag on the subject by lien Rtchter , the radical leader. The result of the Diet elections , so fa : as It concerns the United States , Is rathe : favorable. The number of conservative : has been reduced so there will not be i majority outspokenly hotttilc to Ainerlcai Imports. A serious blow has been dealt to the bis tortc student dueling by the action of thi senate of the University of Heidelberg which has required corps students accusei of challenging to fight duels to leave th university for four college half years. Thli Is the first time any German university ha taken serious action against dueling , am the fact that a university of such standlni has taken the Initiative Is certain to bav Important influence In the direction of th entire abolition of dueling. Emperor' * Gift. Emperor William's gift of the abode e the Virgin ilary to the German Catholic was a very clever move and has made a pro found and favorable Impression among th Catholics. The remarks of the centrist pres clearly show this , for even the usuall venomous Germanla accords his majesty un stinted praise and says : "Tho possession of the abode , which ha been the heart's desire of the Germa Catholics for years and which French ID ( luenco was unable to get from the sultat was due to the energetic and wnll-dlrecte efforts of the kaiser , which achieved thel object Immediately where France notorlousl failed. " All the Christian congregations of Jen salem , Greeks , Russians , Armenians an French Augustlnes , have repeatedly offere Urge sums for the * abode and the adjolnln cocnaculuin , but the Moslems have alwaj refused. Turkish law gives the owner ( the abode a primary claim upon the coent culum If It ever changes hands. Politicians point out that the emperor hi also done a shrewd stroke of business , as I has put the centrists under an obligation I support government measures In the Relchi tag. tag.There There Is much official Indignation at th fact that the Vienna Argelter Zeltung , tt i&adlng Austrian socialist organ , aucccedo ° n obtaining Emperor William's gpetches i Jerusalem before ho delivered them , prefacIng Ing them1 "Kaiser William will today tank the following ip cch.

The university students' associations of Germany are preparing for a Joint movement to honor the memory of I'rlnco Bismarck. It Is proposed to hold an annual celebration at the grave of the Iron chancellor , begin ning January 18 next , that being the anni versary of the crowning of King William of Prussia as emperor of Oeinany in 187-0 In the palace of the French kings at Versailles. It Is understood that the family of the late Prince Bismarck has decided that the final Interment of his remains It to take place on December 27 at Stag 'Hlll near Frledrlchs- ruhe. It Is said that Maximilian Harden , the editor and publisher of Die Zukunft , who has been sentenced to six months' detention In a fortress for lose niajeste , does not Intend ro undergo his punishment , but will emigrate to Austria and publish a paper there. Conviction * for Lone Mnjcnte. There has been a great Increase lately In the number of convictions for lese majeste and some of them are outrageous. A re spectable girl of 19 , named Jenny Dyk , has been sentenced at Breslau to two months' Imprisonment In Jail for merely criticising n picture of the emperor which was exposed In a store -window ; and a girl 17 years of age , at Cologne , has Seen entenced to six months In Jail because. In the presence of another girl , she tore dow'tt a portrait of the emperor of the wall of ht r own room. The climate of the German coaling station at Kalo-Chou bay , China , In spite of offi cial denials , appears to be very bad. The deaths of German soldiers and sailors , chl-fly from malarial fever , are becoming alarm ingly frequent. Two members of the Now York Life In surance company had their first hearing at the Prussian ministry of the Interior on Wednesday relative to the company's re quest for permission to resume Its Insurance business In Prussia. The matter will not be decided for a couple of months yet. Andrew D.

There are -five state tickets in nomination In New York , ee fol- mknown quantity , probably Important onlj f that of the two old parties shall bo close ; hat of the socialist-labor party may ap > iroxlmato 20,000 , while the prohibition vott ins not often been much In excess ol [ 0,000. Besides state officers there will be elected on Tuesday next a legislature , thai will choose a United States senator to suc ceed Edward Murphy , democrat. Thirty- 'our ' representatives in congress will alst ) o elected. The republican campaign has been an ag gressive ono and notable for the energj with which Colonel Roosevelt conducted hi : canvass. Within ono week the lost weel of October he traversed the state from casi Lo west and from wtst to east , delivering close upon 100 addresses , some of them o considerable length. The democratic candidates for state offlce ! and for congress persistently refused to hi led Into discussion ot the currency or othei national Issues. The potency of Greater New York as t factor is shown by the fact that it cast ! nearly as many ballots ns all the rest o the stnto and that there arc greater varla < tlons In the party tides In the city tbai up the state. For example. In 1S96 , Black republican for governor , had a plurality o 30,031 over democrats of both the free sllve anil the gold standard wings , while In ISO' ' the democratic Judicial nominee had a plur allty of 95,354. There has been this yea a local diversion which may exert i marked Influence on the vote of Create Now York. This consists In the allegattoi that Richard Croker has sought to mak < the Judiciary dependent upon his pcrbona will and pleasure. The state senate has a membership o fifty and the assembly of 100. As nt prescn constituted , there Is a republican majorlt ; of 28 on Joint ballot. The republicans nr disposed to concede a reduction of their ma Jorlty in the legislature , but profess a con fidence that they will have a working ma Jorlty in both houses. The democrats con fldcntly expect to gain three or more con gressmen in districts below the Harler river and possibly as many up in the stat districts. The republicans do not feel Ban gulne of maintaining the preponderance o 28 as against six democrats In the New Yor ! delegation. The registration In Greater New York thl jear , while not ns heavy as last year , give promise of a large vote being brought oul the figures being : This year , C56.389 ; las year , 667,192. The vote ordinarily Is abou 7 per cent less than the registration. HOT FIOHT IN iiAWMJY's nismici Sole Feature of Iiitcrext In the Cnin pulKii In Teini. DALLAS , Tex. , Nov. 5.
